Staff-owned retailer announces plan to offer senior managers a level-6 vocational qualification <b>equivalent</b> to an honours degree John Lewis is planning to offer <b>its</b> staff the chance to study for "degrees" under a work-based <b>scheme</b> dubbed the "University of John Lewis".The staff-owned retailer said it would offer senior managers a level 6 vocational qualification, said to be equivalent to an honours degree, by <b>the</b> end<br><img src=""><br> of the year. The department store chain already offers a range of existing programmes leading to qualifications. Last year 1,330 John Lewis partners gained a retail diploma, with a <b>third</b> picking up a level&nbsp;3 qualification, which is at a standard equivalent to A-levels.John Lewis personnel director, Laura Whyte, said: "There is an old-fashioned view that retail doesn't offer people long-term career opportunities, but that is just <b>no</b> longer the case."Our partners give us our competitive edge, and if we want them to stay with us for the long term, we need to make sure that they have the right skills to meet the challenges we face in an evolving retail environment."There is<br><img src=""><br> a growing trend for workplace learning, with accountancy firms KPMG and PwC offering the chance to study for a degree while training. McDonald's and KFC run degrees in association with Manchester Metropolitan University and De Montfort University, respectively.John<br> LewisRetail industryVocational educationFurther educationRupert &copy; 2013 Guardian News and Media Limited or its affiliated companies.<br> All rights reserved. | Use of this content is subject to our Terms & Conditions | More Feeds&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; I made a note about this two years ago in Media queries, viewport width, scrollbars, and WebKit <b>browsers.<br></b> In that post I also pointed to the following statement in the Media Queries specification:A bevy of beefy linemen are expected to command the <b>spotlight</b> usually <b>reserved</b> for quarterbacks when the National Football League (NFL) Draft kicks off with first-round selections on Thursday.&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; Clarifying an executive's highly quoted statement, "We are not interested in the U.S.<br> The recent rape conviction of <b>two</b> teenagers, one of whom also distributed a photo and sent cruel text messages about <b>their</b> victim, has captured the “bystander effect” in graphic and nauseating detail.<br> <b>The</b> bystander effect is the psychological term coined after Kitty <b>Genovese</b> was raped and <b>murdered</b> outside her New York apartment building in 1964.

Performing any kind of brain function requires many neurons in different parts of the brain to <b>communicate</b> <b>with</b> each other. They achieve this communication by sending electrical signals, triggering an influx of calcium ions into active cells. Using dyes that bind <b>to</b> calcium, researchers have imaged neural activity in neurons. However, the brain contains thousands of cell types, each with distinct functions, and the dye is <b>taken</b> up nonselectively by all cells, making it impossible to pinpoint calcium in specific cell types with this approach.

Featured also were special guests Hauschka and <b>Pamela</b> Z, two artists at the forefront of contemporary experimental <b>music.</b> Employing custom MIDI controllers, <b>Pamela</b> Z used her classically trained voice, found text and objects, digital delay loops, and gestural controls to create layered and incantatory sound collages.<br> With such experimental<br><img src=""><br> music, she <b>says,</b> "you can combine <b>bel</b> canto techniques with screeching.<br> You <b>don't</b> have <b>to</b> pick one." Such creative suffusion was the order of <b>the</b> day.<br> Hauschka also employed found <b>objects</b> in his extensions of John Cage's "prepared piano." By inserting everything from<br><img src=""><br> ping-pong balls to bottle caps into the "guts" of the piano, Hauschka created distinctly un-piano like sounds, in an effort to replicate acoustically <b>the</b> sounds of electronica.<br> At the concert, his piece <b>"Radar"</b> ingeniously reproduced the pulsing techno sounds of a dance club.<br> The concert culminated in an unheard-of <b>world</b> fusion version of Terry Riley's<br><img src=""><br> minimalist masterpiece "In C." In the <b>piece,</b> renowned guest artists performed with members from six different MIT musical groups: The MIT Symphony Orchestra, MIT Wind Ensemble, Festival Jazz Ensemble, Rambax, Galak Tika and the new Glass Lab Band, whose original glass instruments <b>were</b> <b>developed</b> under the leadership of <b>Glass</b> Lab Director Peter Houk and Visiting Artist Mark Stewart.<br> Perhaps no better a piece than "In C" to accommodate this multifarious cross <b>section</b> <b>of</b> musical practices. Heralded as the first of its kind when it <b>debuted</b> in 1964, the minimalist"In C" is composed of 53<br><img src=""><br> short musical phrases which musicians are urged to play through at their own pace, creating ever-shifting layers of canons and polyrhythms. Holding the piece together is the <b>metronomic</b> C note called "The Pulse." Much of "In C" <b>is</b> left to chance; there is no fixed length or number of performers. At the concert, its loose, overlapping texture was both rousing and hypnotic at <b>once,</b> rising and <b>falling</b> over time. The idiosyncrasies of each particular instrument emerged the longer one listened,<br><img src=""><br> and <b>then</b> dissolved <b>back</b> into the river <b>of</b> sound. "Experimental glass instruments jamming together classical cellos and traditional Senegalese drums, making something beautiful, groovy and unprecedented to me this is a portrait of the arts at MIT," Ziporyn says.

They just want to be <b>shown</b> some respect for the church and their community," she said.Among those following the loyalist parade from the Upper Crumlin Road <b>into</b> central Belfast was <b>the</b> former EastEnders star and Sky television presenter Ross Kemp.<br> He categorically denied reports circulating in <b>the</b> city that he had help ignite one of the loyalist bonfires that are lit at midnight to mark the beginning of the 12 <b>July</b> celebrations."That is complete bullshit," he told the Guardian as police escorted the Ardoyne loyalist parade towards a group of supporters who greeted them in Twaddell Avenue in the <b>Greater</b> Shankill area."I<br> just hope that everything passes off peacefully today because so much has been achieved here in Northern Ireland since the signing of the Good Friday agreement. I have been speaking to all sides over the last week while I am here making my film," Kemp added.The<br> North Belfast Democratic Unionist MP Nigel Dodds, who took part in the controversial march, denounced the decision by the Parades Commission to <b>ban</b> the return parade.Dodds<br> said: "Tensions are running very, very high and we have to get <b>through</b> <b>this</b> morning as peaceably as we can."We want to<br><img src=""><br> have a good day on the 12th and there's no reason why there should <b>be</b> any trouble or violence."During<br> the march past St Patrick's church at least two Orange lodges paid tribute to Drummer Lee Rigby, the young soldier murdered in horrific <b>circumstances</b> in London who was <b>buried</b> on Friday.Orangemen unfurled banners with pictures of the young soldier as <b>well</b> as another painted on the <b>side</b> of a drum.More<br><img src=""><br> than 30,000 Orangemen and their supporters, accompanied by flute and accordion bands, are taking part in 550 parades to mark King William of Orange's victory over the Catholic King <b>James</b> II at the Battle <b>of</b> the Boyne in 1690.<br> The vast majority of these marches are peaceful and <b>non-contentious.A<br></b> joint statement from the two main loyalist paramilitary organisations, the Ulster Volunteer Force and the Ulster Defence Association, said that while they were prepared to steward supporters attending the early morning march past Ardoyne to <b>ensure</b> peace on the streets, they would not prevent anyone wanting to take part in protests on Friday evening against the ban on the return route.Sectarian<br> divisions were not only the schisms<br><img src=""><br> on open display in north Belfast on Friday.
