News story: UK to establish global nursing partnership with Jamaica

first_imgThe partnership is an extension of the successful ‘earn, learn and return’ scheme, which has already seen Indian nurses benefit from NHS work experience.Registered nurses from Jamaica will undertake work placements in the UK, facilitated by Health Education England, in areas such as emergency medicine and intensive care. They will go back to Jamaica to share their new skills, knowledge and experience with their own healthcare system.In return, NHS staff will be given the opportunity to travel to Jamaica to share their expertise with the Jamaican health service and help them to improve their care.The aim of the scheme is to support the Jamaican government in improving the capability and capacity of their nursing workforce, as well as establish a network of professionals from both countries who will continue to share learning and knowledge beyond the scheme itself.Minister of State for Health Stephen Barclay said: This will also form part of the NHS’s commitment to supporting its staff to develop and progress their careers. Offering global health placements within training programmes or as part of continual professional development has shown to have a positive impact on recruitment and retention of staff.All nurses who come to work for the NHS will be required to meet the standards of the Nursing and Midwifery Council.The UK government also recently announced a 25% increase in UK nursing degree training places. The NHS is blazing a trail in healthcare across the world and it is testament to the skills and expertise of our dedicated nurses that other countries are vying for their knowledge to help improve their own services. I’m delighted that we’re partnering with Jamaica in this scheme, which will build on our existing collaboration with India, and further demonstrates the Government’s commitment to forging new international relationships in preparation for the UK to leave the European Union.last_img read more

Juventus open talks to sign Valencia star

first_imgTorres has enjoyed an excellent campaign at Los Che but his contract expires in the summer of 2021 and his future is now said to be in doubt.The 20-year-old penned a new contract with Los Che in April 2018 in a deal which runs through until next summer with a reported €100m release clause, although due to the expiration date on the deal the Spanish club may lower this value.Valencia are said to be hopeful of tieing the highly-rated winger Torres down to a new deal to ward off interest from clubs, including Barcelona and Real Madrid – whose interest was outlined in a report in Diario AS this December.“I hope Ferran can stay at our club for a very long time,” then Valencia boss Albert Celades – who was sacked on Monday – was cited as saying in February by Superdeporte.“He is a player from our club and he feels it, that is always a big deal. I hope an agreement can soon be reached with Ferran.”Torres made his first team debut in November 2017 and has made 80 senior appearances for the club since, becoming a regular under Marcelino Garcia Toral and then Albert Celades.Valencia winger Ferran TorresRead Also: Chelsea, Man Utd blocking Moses, Sanchez loan deals over Europe fearsThe winger starred in the UEFA European Under-19 Championship in Armenia last year, netting both goals in a 2-0 final victory over Portugal and is now a member of the Under-21 side.It is claimed that Madrid have been interested in Torres since his pre-teen days at the Mestalla and could make their move again this year.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail分享 Juventus have opened negotiations to sign highly-rated Valencia winger Ferran Torres this summer, report Onda Cero.Advertisement Loading…last_img read more

Mickelson’s streak of 26 years in the top 50 comes to an end

He slashed his way to a tie for 28th in the HSBC Champions, with only 100 or so fans following along.center_img Written By WATCH US LIVE 10 months ago MMA: Tito Ortiz is confident about defeating Alberto El Patron 10 months ago Hamilton closing in on Schumacher’s 7 F1 titles SHANGHAI (AP) — The streak ended with little fanfare, and that was just fine with Phil Mickelson.He slashed his way to a tie for 28th in the HSBC Champions, with only 100 or so fans following along. Mickelson played his last nine holes right behind Rory McIlroy, but only because Lefty was in the first group to tee off on the back nine. He signed for a 68 in his final round of the year.The number that stands out is No. 51, his position this week in the Official World Golf Ranking.For the first time in nearly 26 years — 1,353 weeks to be exact — Mickelson is no longer among the top 50 in the world.“It was a good run,” Mickelson said Sunday. “Unfortunately, the last eight months I played terribly and have fallen out. But I’ll get back in there.”The question is whether anyone can ever match it.Jordan Spieth was not quite 4 months old when Mickelson first cracked the top 50 on Nov. 23, 1993, with a runner-up finish in the Casio World Open. Deane Beman was still the commissioner of the PGA Tour.Rory McIlroy compared Mickelson’s streak favorably with Tiger Woods going 142 starts on the PGA Tour over seven years without missing a cut.“Being top 50 in the world since 1993, that means no injuries, no breaks, that is nothing,” McIlroy said. “Play your game, keep going.”That’s all Mickelson has done.He never reached No. 1 in the world, mainly because of Woods, partly because Mickelson was not on top of his game when Woods fell off and created an opportunity. Then again, Mickelson never won a PGA Tour money title or was voted PGA Tour player of the year.His hallmark is a consistently great play, and it is unrivaled.“It’s pretty amazing given he was there into his 40s like that, with how much time is taken from golf with your family,” Spieth said. “You’re not as sharp because you’re not doing it as often. I give him more credit in the last seven to 10 years.”Mickelson nearly fell out at the start of 2018, and then he ran off four straight top 10s, culminating with his third World Golf Championships title in Mexico City. He reached No. 17 with his victory at the Pebble Beach Pro-Am in February — his seventh win in his 40s, including a major — and was hopeful of a big year.He hasn’t finished better than a tie for the 18th since then.McIlroy is completing his 11th year in the top 50 — he first cracked the top 50 with a runner-up finish in Hong Kong in 2008 — and that’s now the longest current streak. For everyone else but Mickelson, it seemed something always would go wrong, whether it was injury (Woods) or a spell of bad play (Adam Scott, Sergio Garcia, Justin Rose).No one thought Woods would drop from the top 50 — much less No. 1, a spot he twice held for five straight years — until his personal life imploded and then his legs broke down, and his streak of 15 years in the top 50 ended in 2011.The secret?It starts with great golf, and Mickelson is among the best to ever play.“You have to have good balance,” Mickelson said. “Amy (his wife) is a big part of that, having a good balance of family and playing schedule, so when I do play I’m focused on. Having kids on the road early in my career was a big thing.“For the most part, it’s having the desire to work on it, and having passion for it and love it and enjoying it and competing.”McIlroy believes the record can be matched, and he thinks it goes beyond staying injury-free. McIlroy had back trouble very early in his career, and he missed a chunk of time in early 2017 with a rib injury, only the second time he went through an entire year without winning.“I would have said that a few years ago,” McIlroy said about injuries. “But I feel as good as I ever have.”He’s also 30. What will he say 10 years from now?“Hopefully, what Tom Brady says,” McIlroy replied. “I feel better than when I came into the league.”McIlroy says a family and shifting priorities could become more of an obstacle than injuries, which impresses him about Mickelson.Spieth is more impressed with Mickelson having played on the last 24 teams for the Ryder Cup and Presidents Cup, another streak that is ending. Mickelson qualified for 19 consecutive teams, and only recently had to rely on a pick. But those streaks go hand-in-hand.“You’re not going to make teams if you’re not top 50, or top 20 even,” Mickelson said.That’s where Mickelson could be found for three weeks shy of 26 years, and even though the streak is done, Mickelson says he is not.He’s already talking about making the next Ryder Cup team.___More AP golf: https://apnews.com/apf-Golf and https://twitter.com/AP_Sports 10 months ago Lewis Hamilton considers prospect of winning 6th F1 title ‘unreal’! 10 months ago German govt at odds over pensions as deeper troubles lurklast_img read more

Joe Buck turned down $1 million to call porn and Twitter reacted accordingly

first_img“If all those guys will do an audition, we’ll give $1 million to the winner,” Adrian Stoneman, the site’s vice president of business, told Rovell in a follow-up interview.Some might think that Buck, a married man, might have only turned down the offer because his wife made him. But Michelle Beisner-Buck made it quite clear that wasn’t the case.Of all the offers you’ve turned down to keep your day job @Buck – this one not only hurts the most, but also had the most potential. Epic fail. https://t.co/tz5fquc3nf— MichelleBeisnerBuck (@MichelleBeisner) April 17, 2020Buck’s public rejection of the offer got a lot of attention from fans on Twitter, for obvious reasons. Here are some of the best reactions.pic.twitter.com/ynxh21rfwi— Stephen A.

Because who doesn’t think, “Hey, I wish I could hear Joe Buck right now” while they’re watching porn during a quarantine? Buck could have tried to avoid any controversy that would arise from such an offer, but instead he opted to steer into the skid and crack a joke.Depending on the site they could just be handing some of my money back to me. So I’ll hold out for a better offer and try to hold on to my day job. But I have to say I’m flattered. https://t.co/wBgkwnHyrA— Joe Buck (@Buck) April 17, 2020Confirmed: Joe Buck pays for porn.MORE: Buck was already turning down offers to narrate sex tapes”I am highly qualified as I have been practicing these calls most of my life,” Buck said of the offer in an interview with Sports Illustrated, “but I don’t want to just take that job without a proper, open audition. So if they get Jim [Nantz] and Al [Michaels] and Mike [Tirico] and all the others who do what I do to audition, I’m in. If any one of them say no, I’m out. That’s all I can commit to at this time. I can say I have NEVER been more flattered. And I know my dad [legendary announcer Jack Buck] would be proud.”Well, that quote got back to the porn site, and now there’s an open call.last_img read more
