UK tackles skills shortages with refugee programmeOn 1 Mar 2002 in Personnel Today Managed migration is the key to meeting skills shortages and developing aneffective asylum system in the UK, Home Secretary David Blunkett has announced.The UK government launched its Highly Skilled Migrant programme on 28January, which will increase the number of well-qualified staff permitted towork in the UK. Blunkett said: “We must have managed migration and inward migrationpolicies to make sure those seeking work here or escaping persecution elsewhereare manageable within the social cohesion of the UK.” He added: “Offering alternative routes [to claiming political asylum]seems to me a prerequisite to getting the rest of the programme right.” Other economic migration initiatives include changing work permit proceduresto make extension easier, and increasing the period of validity of the permitsfrom four to five years. A new scheme will allow seasonal and less skilled workers to secure permits,and overseas graduates will now be able to apply for a work permit directlyfollowing their studies. Comments are closed.

You might not like what you see, but blame the NFL schedule makers who put six teams on bye (Broncos, Texans, Jaguars, Patriots, Eagles, Redskins), not us. You can also blame poor quarterbacks, tough matchups, and injuries, but even great chefs can only do so much with mediocre ingredients. That’s the wide receiver pool for Week 10 is — a bunch of mediocre ingredients.Even the top tier has question marks. Keenan Allen has struggled for the better part of a month, but everyone roasts the Raiders…right? Allen Robinson is coming off his worst game of the season — in a favorable matchup, no less — but we can count on him against the Lions…right? And Tyler Lockett is good enough to put up numbers against anyone, even the 49ers…right? WEEK 10 NON-PPR RANKINGSQuarterback | Running back | Wide receiver | Tight end | D/ST | KickerObviously, you’re going to have to make some tough start-or-sit decisions this week, and while none of the guys just mentioned should be involved in those, they’re emblematic of the position as a whole. If there’s ever been a week to trust high-target, middle-tier guys like Jamison Crowder (vs. Giants), Cole Beasely (@ Browns), Jarvis Landry (vs. Bills), and Tyler Boyd (vs. Ravens), it’s this one. They’ve all put up some duds this year, but at least you know they will get their chances. In PPR leagues, that will be extra important this week.WEEK 10 PPR RANKINGS: Running back | Tight endInjuries could really help a few borderline guys see more looks, specifically Robert Woods (@ Steelers) if Brandin Cooks (concussion) is out and Auden Tate/Alex Erickson (vs. Ravens) if A.J. Green (ankle) remains out. DeVante Parker (@ Colts) would also likely be more reliable if Preston Williams (knee) is out, but it’s tough to pinpoint another Dolphins receiver who would step up in Williams’ absence.MORE WEEK 10:Waiver pickups | FAAB planner | Snap counts | Trade values | Fantasy playoff SOSUltimately, this will likely be a tough week for most owners. Whether that comes early in the form of start/sit decisions or late because of a lack of production, chances are few will be immune. Hopefully, you won’t have to deal with the latter. A little stress on Sunday morning is fine as long as you have points on the board come Sunday night.Reminder: Check back for updates during the week.

The Chipolopolo (Zambia) celebrating after scoring against Algeria.Johannesburg, South Africa | AFP | Zambia overcame conceding a goal and having a player sent off inside 60 seconds to score a historic 3-1 World Cup qualifying victory over Algeria in Lusaka Saturday.Brian Mwila scored twice to give the “Chipolopolo” (Copper Bullets) a two-goal half-time advantage before a near-capacity crowd at the 60,000-seat National Heroes Stadium.But Yacine Brahimi halved the deficit on 55 minutes and a minute later Fashion Sakala was red-carded after a second caution on a hot, cloudless afternoon.Algeria could not take advantage of playing against 10 men, however, and Enock Mwepu sealed a first Group B triumph for Zambia with an 89th-minute goal.It was the first Zambian win over the Algerians in World Cup qualifying after failing to score in four losses stretching back to the mid-1980s.Success gave the southern Africa nation a glimmer of hope in a mini-league being dominated by Nigeria, who thrashed African champions Cameroon 4-0 in Uyo Friday.Nigeria have a maximum nine points after three rounds, Zambia four, Cameroon two and 2014 World Cup last-16 qualifiers Algeria just one.Cameroon host Nigeria in Yaounde Monday and Algeria are at home to Zambia in Blida Tuesday on matchday 4.Depending on the results, Nigeria could become the first qualifiers from Africa for the 2018 World Cup in Russia with two matches to spare.Mwila rattled the woodwork with a header before nodding Zambia into a sixth-minute lead and scored again on 33 minutes, this time poking a rebound into the net.Brahimi hit back via a superb shot from inside the ‘D’ to offer Algeria hope only for Mwepu to put the result beyond doubt with a low shot from inside the box. 2 Zambia311154+14 1 Nigeria330092+79 PosTeamPldWDLGFGAGDPts 1–2—6 Nov3–1 Share on: WhatsApp
