The research finds that quality of training and development remains the most important factor for graduates, with salary and benefits dropping to fifth place in terms of importance. The people and the culture of the company are both more important to today’s graduates than remuneration, the survey finds. “Money clearly isn’t king for today’s graduates as this drop in importance shows,” said EY’s Julie Stanbridge. “With the graduate job market recovering, the class of 2015 are making longer term decisions about what their first job will bring to their career prospects, rather than focusing on the quick win.” Hakan Enver, London operations director of City recruiter Morgan McKinley, told City A.M.: “There’s much more of an emphasis on selling the values of the business, the diversity of the business, the progress, the opportunity to get involved in a range of things as opposed to just the core day to day operational aspects, and just really looking at attracting individuals more for the longer term.” With a work life balance, company culture, and a firm’s reputation now all more important, Stanbridge says that larger firms are under threat: “Start-ups, especially in the tech industry, are leading the way in challenging traditional corporate cultures and norms”, she commented. “Larger graduate employers, however, aren’t resting on their laurels and are placing more importance in creating connections with students through face-to-face interactions at universities and careers fairs, as well as through social media.” last_img read more

Rapid autopsies could speed cancer research. They’re also fraught for families

first_img Dr. Jody Hooper, Johns Hopkins University In the LabRapid autopsies could speed cancer research. They’re also fraught for families But the procedures are forcing doctors and patients to overcome their reluctance to discuss death, and family members to confront the idea of parting with loved ones’ bodies shortly after their death — within six hours, optimally. Hopkins doctors typically broach the subject with patients while they are introducing the prospect of hospice care. But it also helps to have doctors trained in having the conversation, said Dr. Dejan Juric, a research oncologist at Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston.“Autopsies are often talked about in negative terms, but if you ask to donate tissues that can help thousands of other people, almost everyone says yes,” he said.Around 2011, Juric began treating a woman in her early 60s with breast cancer. She died in 2012 after tumors overtook her liver, bones, and lymph nodes. But before she died, Juric spoke with her and her husband about sampling her tumors to better understand what had eluded them during her treatment.They consented, and a rapid autopsy later revealed how the mutant genes that drive certain cancers will, when initially thwarted by chemo or other therapies, mutate again into slightly different variants of themselves depending on where and when the distant cancer grew.Juric’s findings were published in the journal Nature early last year. He subsequently helped identify an experimental drug, buparlisib, that targeted both the mutant gene that drove the initial tumor and the genetic cousins that drove distant metastases. (Juric, who has consulted for Novartis, the maker of buparlisib, is also developing new treatments to target these mutant gene families more effectively than past drugs.) Dr. Dejan Juric is a research oncologist at Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston. Kayana Szymczak for STAT Related: Why are doctors so bad at telling patients they’re dying? Cindy Eid, whose sister died of breast cancer in 2014, recalled oncologists broaching the subject of a rapid autopsy with her in the days before her sister died.Susan was not conscious at the time.“I just instantly knew it was perfect for her,” Eid said, adding her sister would have wanted to help future patients. “Her philosophy was that if it’s experimental today, it could be a cure tomorrow. Or a treatment.”Backed by a donation from Eid’s estate, Juric and Dr. James R. Stone, a Mass General pathologist, Mass General created a formal rapid autopsy program this year. The hospital now performs roughly two to three procedures weekly, compared with one every three or four weeks in previous years, and is exploring ways to offer them to patients who die outside the hospital.The program will fuel one of the most significant trends in cancer research: the creation of what Juric calls patient avatars, the cell lines or mouse models derived from a patient’s tumor that can be used to test treatments for patients with similar histories.Just as aviation researchers have saved countless lives by piecing together clues from airline disasters and helping design safer planes, oncologists like Juric believe they can analyze cells derived from a deceased patient’s tumor and develop better treatments for others in the future.“We’d like to use these avatars to potentially design even entire trials, just using these patient-derived models,” he said. “We want to build platforms. Make cell lines. Mouse models. Have labs ready and hungry to analyze the tumors.”“We need patients and families to embrace this, though. It looks at times like everything is lost when that patient dies,” Juric added. “But so many are left behind who will need these discoveries.”Allen Lee, a 30-year-old software engineer in Somerville, Mass., who is being treated for Stage 4 lung cancer, said his doctor hasn’t broached the subject with him, but he would be willing to participate if asked — and if his family did not object. “In an already very emotionally stressful time, I wouldn’t want to put something even more distressing on them,” he said.As an engineer, he said, he understands the philosophy of gathering information “even if you’re not sure what to do with it. You don’t really know where the gold is, so it’s better to try to get as much dirt as possible.”“It’s other people doing this that helps me, and it’s me doing this that would help other people,” he said. “I just wish the answer could come in time to help me.” “There’s horrible poetry to the idea that your tumor lives longer than you do, but that’s what happens with this,” said Dr. Jody Hooper, a pathologist who runs the rapid autopsy program at Johns Hopkins Medicine. “Tissue has become the holy grail.”Hooper spoke by phone last week from a meeting of North American pathologists, where representatives from other major hospitals were seeking advice on how to set up similar programs. So far, roughly 10 hospitals conduct the procedures.Hooper is the only pathologist to perform rapid autopsies at Hopkins, and she’s been busy, performing at least seven in the past 10 weeks as more researchers and patients sign on.The logistics can be complicated.Doctors discuss the procedure with patients, but in most states, it’s the surviving family members who must consent to the procedure.Patients and family members can limit the scope of the autopsy however they wish, though Hooper said she “always makes some kind of incision. And I encourage families to consent to a full autopsy, because sometimes I can find tumor sites that don’t come up on imaging.”If the patient dies outside the hospital, Hopkins arranges transport for the body.

Now, increasingly, they’re rushing to attend to the dead.A small but fast-growing number of hospitals are embracing procedures known as “rapid autopsies” — conducted in the hours immediately after a patient’s death.The idea is to obtain tissues from tumors before they start significantly degrading. Using genetic analysis technology, doctors can then determine precisely how cancer cells survived every attempt to kill them.advertisement “There’s horrible poetry to the idea that your tumor lives longer than you do, but that’s what happens.” Tags autopsycancerJohns Hopkinsoncologylast_img read more

Weekend Read: 25 years on from Emo Court coming into state ownership

first_img Electric Picnic Weekend Read: 25 years on from Emo Court coming into state ownership Facebook Bizarre situation as Ben Brennan breaks up Fianna Fáil-Fine Gael arrangement to take Graiguecullen-Portarlington vice-chair role It’s arguably the most popular public attraction in Laois and last week was the 25th anniversary of Emo Court coming into state ownership.On September 27 1995, Emo Court was handed over to the state by its then owner Cholmeley Harrison. President Mary Robinson was on hand to accept it a ceremony on the grounds. Michael D Higgins – then the Minister for Arts, Culture and the Gaeltacht – was due to attend also, though had to withdraw at late notice.Prior to that, the deal to bring the estate under the care of the Office of Public Works was negotiated by a certain Phil Hogan, then the Minister for State with responsibility for the OPW.The house and its 250 acres, including agricultural land, gardens, woodland and lake was handed over to the state on a part donation, part sale basis.“It is our intention to complete the restoration work on the house and gardens and have it open for as much access to the public as possible,” an OPW spokesperson said in mid January 1995 when John Whelan broke the story on the front page of the Leinster Express. And the story got significant coverage when the official duties took place in the autumn of that year.“It was a simple ceremony, over in seconds,” wrote John Whelan, in the first line on his report of the occasion.“But the speed with which the key to Emo Court was symbolically handed over to President Mary Robinson on behalf of the state belied its significance.“The unique and impressive Gandon-designed ediface and its idyllic gardens were formally accepted on behalf of the people of Ireland by the President and the property represents a major acquisition by the Office of Public Works (OPW) and a significant addition to its heritage portfolio.”Cholmeley Harrison had bought Emo Court in 1969 from the Jesuit Order for £42,000, who had owned it since 1929. It was a base for their novice priests.Born in Kent in England in 1908, Harrison was educated in Cambridge and went on to become a member of the London Stock Exchange in 1938 where he earned his living right up until the 1970s. He also served as a Major in the Royal Marines during World War 2.In 1931, Cholmeley-Harrison married Barbara Mary Corisande, a daughter of Lord Bellew of Meath. The couple had three daughters, but were divorced in 1948. At the end of the war, in 1945, he moved to Ireland, acquiring Woodstown House in Waterford which was a Regency villa overlooking Waterford Harbour.In the summer of 1967, Cholmeley-Harrison rented Woodstown to Mrs Jacqueline Kennedy, widow of US President John F Kennedy, and her family. However, such was the intrusion to his privacy as a result, he decided to sell the house and he acquired Emo Court.The house, though, needed plenty of attention but Cholmeley-Harrison dedicated years to the project – and at considerable cost – under the guidance of Sir Albert Richardson and Partners of London.According to the architectural historian Mark Bench-Jones, he “restored and redecorated the house most sympathetically” and “furnished it with great taste and splendour”.Emo Court was designed by the great Georgian architect James Gandon and was built in the “monumental style” of the Custom House in Dublin, beginning in 1790, for the first Earl of Portarlington who was instrumental in bringing Gandon to Ireland.The Earl died before it was finished, the second Earl had no money and so it was left to the third Earl to complete the job.According to Bench-Jones, “Emo Court only came into its own post 1969” when Cholmeley-Harrison acquired it and completed some of the work originally planned by Gandon. And when he finished the house, he turned his attention to the gardens.He was well-respected in the Emo area and provided much employment on the grounds though the Irish Times obituary on his death noted that “he was meticulous and very strict as to how the work should be carried out”.Initially the public were able to pay a fee to visit the gardens on a Sunday but in 1994, he took the decision to hand over the property to the state. Tours of the house then became popular while various walking routes – including a very scenic one around the lake – were developed and are hugely popular.Cholmeley-Harrison continued to live in an apartment on the site up until his death, just shy of his 100th birthday in 2008. He regularly attended the nearby church at Coolbanagher where he was also generous with his gifts.“The future of Emo, he felt, would be secure only if it was in State ownership and though the OPW, for lack of funds, was initially reluctant to take it over, he persisted and in 1994 he handed the house and grounds to the State, with the proviso that he could remain in an apartment there for the rest of his life,” added the Irish Times.On the day of the handing over ceremony, then aged 87, his speech was short and sweet.“I give to you, and through you to the people of Ireland, Emo Court, its contents and gardens, which is all I have to say,” was his quick few words.According to John Whelan’s report of the event, President Robinson “enthusiastically applauded Mr Cholmeley-Harrison for his generosity” and “was confident that Emo Court would represent the start of a regeneration for the entire area”.“She said that its acquisition by the OPW fitted into a broader strategy which was now fully appreciating the significance and importance of such heritage sites as Heywood, Birr, Roscrea and Kilkenny.“She spoke of the extraordinary and compelling power of such a property which had the capacity to greatly enhance the lives of all those in the community.“It was not until recently, the President said, that we have come to fully appreciate the significance of such heritage monuments as Emo Court which had an important role to play in today’s society as they draw in visitors, created employment and regenerated the community.”“I can assure Mr Cholmeley-Harrison that Emo Court is in very safe hands with the Office of Public Works,” she said.“I myself look forward to getting back here and rambling around and enjoying the house and gardens which are now a resource for the people of Ireland. We are most grateful for your dedication and generosity.”Among those in attendance on that September day were students from Emo and Killenard National Schools and guests from the community and invited dignatories.“The Earl of Rosse from Birr, Desmond Fitzgerald, the Knight of Glin and the Georgian Society and Mr Cholmeley-Harrison’s daughters – Caroline, the Countess of Inchape, and Charlotte Marsh – were also in attendance.”SEE ALSO – Weekend Read: Laois and midlands crying out for camping facilities News Pinterest Pinterest TAGSCholmelely-HarrisonEmoEmo CourtLove Laois Electric Picnic organisers release statement following confirmation of new festival date By Steven Miller – 3rd October 2020 Home We Are Laois Weekend Read: 25 years on from Emo Court coming into state ownership We Are Laois WhatsApp Twitter Facebook RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Electric Picnic Previous articleFr Paddy: St Francis – an iconic SaintNext articleThe Week that Was: Our most read stories of the past seven days Steven Millerhttp://www.laoistoday.ieSteven Miller is owner and managing editor of From Laois, Steven studied Journalism in DCU and has 14 years experience in the media, almost 10 of those in an editorial role.

(September 19, 2016) – Just over fifty years ago, David Lett, founder of The Eyrie Vineyards, planted the Willamette Valley’s first Pinot noir. Others soon joined the quest, giving rise to an entire wine industry known for its world-class Pinot noir and inviting hospitality. Days ago, the Wine Enthusiast confirmed the region’s place on the world wine stage by nominating the Willamette Valley as a “2016 Region of the Year” for their esteemed Wine Star Awards.The Wine Star Awards are viewed as some of the most influential in the wine industry. Each year since 2000, the editors of Wine Enthusiast recognize and celebrate individuals, companies and regions that have made exceptional achievements and contributions in the wine world. Wine Enthusiast will announce the winner on November 8th, and the Wine Star Awards gala will be held on January 30th in Miami, FL.“In the years since the first planting of Pinot noir, Willamette Valley wines have wowed critics, lured tourists and tempted winemakers to pack up and move to Oregon in their quest for perfect Pinot,” said Sue Horstmann, Executive Director of the Willamette Valley Wineries Association. “Our region is now the epicenter of Oregon’s multi-billion dollar per year wine industry with more than 500 wineries. And in many ways, it’s just getting started. We’re so grateful to be nominated.

Sharon Ffolkes-Abrahams, who made the announcement during her 2013/14 Sectoral Debate presentation in the House on June 25, said the United States Agency for International Development (USAID)-funded project aims to facilitate and support the growth and development of social enterprises across Jamaica.She explained that the SEBI business development programme is designed to: build the capacity of social enterprises to achieve financial sustainability and increased social impact; enable these organisations to improve their business skills and expertise; and strengthen their business efficiencies through training and development, and networking opportunities.“These (10) businesses/organisations have (already) been identified as making a meaningful contribution to individuals, communities and consequently, to Jamaica’s development,” she informed, pointing out that they were selected based on their response to general invitations from the Ministry for application submissions for SEBI support.Mrs. Ffolkes Abrahams said the Jamaica Business Development Corporation (JBDC) will work with the entities to “transform” them into efficient, competitive and profitable businesses.In addition to these inputs, she said the Ministry also has a Small Business Development Centre (SBDC) programme in place to lend support to those stakeholders. The State Minister informed that the SBDC model was developed in the United States based on the important role that small businesses are deemed to play in economic development.Mrs. Ffolkes Abrahams explained that SBDCs provide a range of intervention services to clients including management training and capacity building; business start-up and formalisation; business plans and financial forecasting; capital access; and innovation and technology.Against this background, she said the SBDC model has been adapted in Jamaica and other Caribbean countries in order to “develop our micro, small and medium-size enterprise (MSME) sector.”“We (in Jamaica) have already completed the training of trainers under the programme and are convinced that this programme will greatly assist in the entrepreneurial building process,” Mrs. Ffolkes Abrahams added.Contact: Douglas McIntosh Advertisementslast_img read more
