23-06-2004 18:25"Once businesses simply expected their employees to be present. Today they demand complete openness. Management seeks to increase `total efficiency' by operational organization in the form of nets and virtual offices. Team, task force, incentive and fringe benefit are the new slogans.." Stephane Haefliger is a sociologist at the University of Lausanne.

I have had neither the time, nor the inclination, to blog lately. The weather is, quite literally, hellish. The heat begins very early in the morning with a blazing sun that seems unfairly close to our part of the earth. You'd think, after the sun has set, that the weather would be drastically cooler. This is not the case in Baghdad. After the sun has set, the hot sidewalks and streets emanate waves of heat for several hours, as if sighing in relief.
Now is it appropriate for a member of the legislature, a home sec. no less, to go around saying he is going to nail someone. At the very least is it a good use of his time.
I have no idea if this man is guilty, I'm pretty sure he did not receive a fair trial, what I do hope is that he is innocent and this is proven and he 'nails' Blunkett in the libel courts.
21-06-2004 13:16In the past Farnborough International Airshow has been a straggle of arms protesters and nothing more. This year we should be thinking big – anti-globalisation, global warming, aviation expansion, anti-war. A week of protest, talks, events and rallies, culminating in a weekend carnival that brings the week's themes together.
Monday 19 July 2004 - Sunday 25 July 2004.
19-06-2004 21:08A group of British politicians were shot at by Israeli soldiers during a UN-supervised fact-finding mission, they have claimed. The cross-party group, including MPs Huw Irranca-Davies and Crispin Blunt, was on a visit to Rafah in Gaza, where UK student Tom Hurndall was killed.
Quite surprising it seems that they really feel that they can get away with anything. With the usual bland comments from the Israeli authorities. I suppose they don't mind at all what europeans think as long as they get the green light from washington.
19-06-2004 13:03Nine months after the events, and after a first trial that collapsed, the Man on the Bridge was on trial again. He faced public order charges merely for putting up a banner and shouting anti-Bush slogans. After a sequence of spectacular failures of the justice system, it was deemed imposible to give him a fair trial, and the charges were dropped!
19-06-2004 09:10There are still 10 people in the Glynn County Jail in Brunswick, Georgia, 9 males and one female. Four of the Brunswick Ten have begun a hunger strike and are demanding that the charges for all 15 arrested on Thursday's walk to Sea Island be dropped.
