Dozens of passengers hurt after a Turkish Airlines plane made emergency landing at JFK: FAA

first_imgWABC(NEW YORK) — A Turkish Airlines flight made an emergency landing at John F. Kennedy International Airport on Saturday evening after 29 passengers, including a flight attendant, were injured when the plane encountered turbulence, officials said.According to a statement from the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) and the city’s Office of Emergency Management (OEM), the Boeing 777 was en route to New York from Istanbul when the aircraft encountered mid-air turbulence.There were 329 people on board, including 21 crew members, according to Steve Coleman, a spokesman with the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey. “It kind of jolted pretty quickly,” passenger Amir Mehrbakhsh told ABC News. “There was like one or two seconds when it was subtle, but then it really started to pick up. … Just because the drop was so sudden, a lot of people got lifted up and hit their head either on the ceiling or on the side of the plane, and so there were a lot of injuries pretty quickly.” The turbulence occurred over Maine about 45 minutes prior to landing, authorities said.Most of the passengers were treated inside an airport terminal. Ten of the 28 passengers were taken to a hospital after the plane landed on Saturday at 5:35 p.m. Two crew members were also injured.Coleman said a flight attendant had a possible broken leg and others suffered bumps, bruises and cuts.“Nobody announced it or anything like that so we figured out something was wrong,” passenger Sead Nikaj told ABC News. “Then I see people start flying on the plane. Then seeing blood all over. I had one of the ladies next to me, she really fell down from her seat on the floor and all her back was completely bloody, while someone that was working in the airplane, she cracked her leg I think completely.”“There was this one guy … and he was frantically screaming,” Mehrbakhsh said. “I think he was like doing a religious chant. I kept hearing him say ‘Jesus,’ like he was visibly distraught.”Emergency first responders worked with Port Authority officials on scene to treat the injured, according to the FDNY.Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio.

‘Cannot tell their left hand from their right’

first_imgThat’s how the people of Nineveh are described the Book of Jonah, but we might equally claim it about the Germans. Or at least the political campaigners.As last Saturday’s neo-Nazi rally approached in the district of Hausen here in Frankfurt, posters started to appear everywhere. They were, unsurprisingly, all attacks on the National Democratic Party of Germany, the NPD, who were protesting against the construction of a mosque in the area.Some of the posters just say “No Nazi”. Others call for “religious freedom”. But many simply state: “Gegen Rechts”. Against the Right. “Links kommt” (the Left is on its way) is another common one. I’ve seen them all around Germany.There are two problems with this. One is that, by polarising the two stances, it suggests that you have to be on the Left to oppose the Far Right. This is not the case. Centre-right parties have no time for racist groups and are often quicker to call for their ban than the Left are. Compare David Cameron’s firm stance on Hizb ut-Tahrir with the Labour government’s decision to keep them legal. The second is the implication that you’re either with the Nazis or against them. Many on the Right – the moderate Right – abhor the extremists but sympathise with their concerns about the changing face of Europe. They also want to uphold the original culture and values of whichever country the debate is taking place in. They are also worried about the potential problems of multiculturalism. But they don’t believe they should be ‘solved’ with Nazi methods. And they don’t want to associate themselves with the skinheads who march in the name of nationalism.Like the BNP, the German Far Right are not as ‘right’ as most people think. As conservative commentator Melanie Phillips has argued, their policies mark them out as pretty leftish. I don’t suppose the NPD were there last weekend to march against high taxes or excessive nationalisation, which would really make them a right-wing party.Maybe people should stop this polarised outlook and take those misleading posters down.Cherwell 24 is not responsible for the content of external siteslast_img read more

Oxford’s reputation catches up with Cambridge for first time

first_imgOxford University’s public reputation has equalled that of Cambridge University for the first time, according to the latest edition of the Times Higher Education (THE) World Reputation Rankings.Since the creation of the rankings seven years ago, Cambridge has always surpassed Oxford, but this year’s rankings places the two institutions in joint fourth place.The improvement in reputation comes after the appointment of Louise Richardson as the University’s first female Vice Chancellor, with the editorial director at THE, Phil Baty, describing the move as “symbolic”.“This was a historical moment—these big symbolic things can make a difference for being front of people’s minds and being noticed,” he said. “Having a woman at the helm means there is a sense of change, momentum and difference”.Louise Richardson took up her post as Vice Chancellor in January 2016, replacing Andrew Hamilton, but Baty described the effect of her appointment on the University’s reputation as a “slow burner.”Other factors may have contributed to the improvement in Oxford’s reputation, with suggestions that Oxford’s first place in the THE world university rankings and receipt of a series of prestigious research grants may have improved its reputation.The top three places were occupied by Harvard, MIT, and Stanford University for the second year running. Besides Oxford and Cambridge, only UCL, Imperial College, and the LSE appeared in the top 20 of the rankings.The rankings were compiled following a three month survey of over 10,000 academics from 137 countries.last_img read more

Motivation: Recommended daily

first_img 17SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr,Carletta Clyatt Carletta Clyatt, a popular seminar speaker, is the SVP at The Omnia Group.  She offers clients advice on how to manage more effectively and gain insight into employee strengths, weaknesses … Web: Details As a manager, it’s tempting to allow staff motivation efforts to fall by the wayside. You have bigger things to think about, like reaching your consumer lending goals and dealing with irate members about their NSF fees! Why should you have to worry about keeping your employees motivated? “People should feel lucky just to have a job!”…right? But if you manage with this state of mind, your staff will be made up of people who ARE just lucky to have jobs. They show up (most of the time), they do the work (most of the time) and they have a good idea of what it takes to NOT get fired (most of the time). Your superstars will have moved on and your potential superstars will be watching the clock by day and surfing employment sites by night.Sure, a person needs a job to survive. But your best employees need meaning to live. Make your employees’ jobs meaningful to them, so they give it their all because they want to, not because they think they have to.I think Zig Ziglar put it best, “People often say that motivation doesn’t last. Well, neither does bathing – that’s why we recommend it daily.”Positive motivation creates positive momentum. Keep motivation top of mind and regularly use our simple, universal tactics to create a culture of motivated employees. The benefit to you is that when treated well, your employees are more invested in the success of the credit union and your branch in particular. There is a sense of being “in this together.” People are more innovative and more open with their ideas. This means that a well-motivated staff will put that extra effort into meeting goals and moving the branch forward.And the good news? A little motivation goes a long way! Not everyone is motivated by the same things, but here are some universals to let your staff know that you appreciate them:For a job well done, say “Thank you” and mean it.Let people know specifically how their contributions are helping the company.Talk to people, and listen, not necessarily just about work. Being seen as human is a pretty big deal to most folks.Ask employees what would make their jobs better. They might surprise you! Get back to them about what is possible.Let people know they are trusted and respected.Allow them to use their strengths, and encourage growth: Let your best and brightest lead (or drag) you forward.This should probably go without saying, but don’t ever tell someone, “You’re just lucky to have a job!”Now that we know some of the universals, let’s talk specifics. At an individual level, one size does not fit all. Personality drives motivators, so what works to energize your credit union may not do much for your tellers.Social employees often appreciate recognition in front of other people. Being hailed in a meeting or event is the ultimate high, while a low-key analytic might cringe and feel embarrassed. Assertive employees are comfortable competing with team mates while supportive employees prefer more collaborative goals.Understanding the unique personalities on your team will help you tailor your management and motivation tactics during coaching sessions, performance reviews and simple one-on-one meetings.When your people feel recognized, rewarded and managed as individuals, you’ll see a return on your motivational investments!last_img read more

Get Ready for Brutally Cold 36 Hours on Long Island

first_imgSign up for our COVID-19 newsletter to stay up-to-date on the latest coronavirus news throughout New York For the next 36 hours, a swarm of arctic air will plunge temperatures into the teens, giving the region its first true taste of winter—which is still officially a week away.Long Islanders will begin to feel the effects of the brutal cold snap Wednesday night, with wind chill values dropping the mercury into the teens, according to the National Weather Service’s Upton office.Freezing temperatures will continue through Thursday, which will hang around the 20s for most of the day. Thursday evening will be dreadful, with forecasters calling for a low of 15, made worse by wind chill values in the single digits.Contributing to the biting cold will be powerful wind gusts as high as 41 mph. A chance of scattered snow in the morning and a slight chance of snow late in the evening are also in the forecast.The arctic blast will continue into Friday. Forecasters are calling for temperatures in the 20s with gusts as high as 26 mph.Despite a chance of snow and rain Saturday, the temperature will rise to 45 on Saturday and 55 on Sunday, giving residents a much-needed reprieve from the arctic blast. Forecasters say rain is likely over the weekend.Long Islanders can once again thank the notorious polar vortex for the frigid air that’s on its way. The vortex is also present in the arctic but occasionally becomes displaced and heads south during the winter—as its happening now.The Northeast is hardly the only victim of the polar votex’s descent.“As this high continues to drift southeastward through the next few days, a very cold air mass will overspread areas from the northern plains and Midwest to the Ohio valley, Mid-Atlantic, and Northeast in the wake of a fast-moving arctic cold front,” the National Weather Service said in a forecast discussion. “High temperatures [Wednesday] are expected to be 20 to 30 degrees below average over the north central U.S., with these cold temperatures spreading eastward on Thursday.”In Chicago, for example, wind chills could be as low as -15.Now that we think of it, maybe we shouldn’t be complaining.last_img read more
