Warm For The Time Of Year?

As we get set for a late start to summer, and possibly one or two days of modest high 20's or low 30's, we can expect Nanny to be prattling on to us about the dangers of exposure to the sun, overheating and the need to hydrate.

The reality, at least in the UK, is that reasonably warm temperatures tend not to last for more than a few days and that unless you are ill/elderly, you will get through it unscathed (without Nanny's lectures!).

ASDA Fires Employee For Not Being Religious

Image result for asda religion

It seems that ASDA have a zero tolerance policy (which is kind of ironic given the circumstances) when it comes to staff posts on social media.

Brian Leach, an Asda Dewsbury employee of five years, was fired for a social media post.

His crime?

Sharing a Billy Connolly video on Facebook (note he did not share it on inhouse intranet).

The video showed Connolly's anti religion sketch of a a few years ago, in which he rails against Christianity and Islam.

For reasons best known to a particular member of staff, she decided she would report it to ASDA; which then decided the sketch (and therefore Mr Leach) was anti Islamic and a breach of ASDA's "tolerance" policy.

Irrespective of the fact that Mr Leach apologised to ASDA, the offended female and removed his post from his own Facebook page, he was still fired.

He was quoted by the Mirror:
"She was upset. I was aware that she was upset.

I was then pulled into a meeting a couple of weeks later on 9 May in Dewsbury and then on Wednesday, 19 June, I was summarily dismissed without notice following a disciplinary meeting for breaching the company's social media policy.

I'm really upset and I would love to know what Billy Connolly would think about what has happened to me.

I didn't have enough money to join a union so I have not been able to appeal the decision."
His apology to bosses read:
"I fully acknowledge my sharing of material online within my Facebook account regarding religion has upset many people and understand it to be a very serious breach of the company social media policy.

In mitigation, I immediately removed the item causing offence and removed the association with Asda on my profile, also removing Colleagues from Facebook friendship who may have been deeply offended by such post.

I have spoken to affected Colleagues apologising for my post, taking their feedback onboard. I have realised people's faiths are very important to them, and the nature of the post regarding the sensitive nature of it relating to the holy place of Islam.

If I had faith I can imagine being very upset myself.

Saying that the post shared is a joke by Billy Connelly (sic) not my personal views. But I recognise how colleagues may think this is my view. As a result I will think very carefully before posting online or saying anything that could be interpreted as hurtful to others and my place of work."

An Asda spokesman said:
"We would never comment on individual circumstances.

However we do not tolerate any form of discrimination from colleagues or customers and take such behaviour extremely seriously.
It seems to me that ASDA is guilty of showing intolerance and discrimination here, against a man who is not religious!

The Dangers of Chrome


Geoffrey Fowler, the Washington Post's technical correspondent, has spent a week looking at Google Chrome and is less than happy with what he found:
"My tests of Chrome vs. Firefox unearthed a personal data caper of absurd proportions. In a week of Web surfing on my desktop, I discovered 11,189 requests for tracker “cookies” that Chrome would have ushered right onto my computer but were automatically blocked by Firefox. These little files are the hooks that data firms, including Google itself, use to follow what websites you visit so they can build profiles of your interests, income and personality.

Chrome welcomed trackers even at websites you would think would be private. I watched Aetna and the Federal Student Aid website set cookies for Facebook and Google. They surreptitiously told the data giants every time I pulled up the insurance and loan service’s log-in pages.

And that’s not the half of it.

Look in the upper right corner of your Chrome browser. See a picture or a name in the circle? If so, you’re logged in to the browser, and Google might be tapping into your Web activity to target ads. Don’t recall signing in? I didn’t, either. Chrome recently started doing that automatically when you use Gmail."
His preference is now Firefox.

The sad, and unpalatable fact is, that whatever you do online is highly likely to be vulnerable to spying, hacking and targeted ads. Neither the state nor private companies can be trusted with the data that they gather from your web activities.

On that note I am surprised at the bizarre "targetted" adverts that I receive when on Facebook; these range from adverts for top hats, Dracula jackets/coats, monocles to women's corsets!

Guys, if you are going to "target" me at least send me adverts for things that I am likely to want!

Nanny's Sausage Roll Fine



As loyal readers know, Nanny never misses an opportunity to screw us for money, as Sally-Ann Fricker has found to her cost when Nanny fined her £150.

Ms Fricker's crime?

She fed a bit of sausage roll to a pigeon!

Ms Fricker said she was out shopping in Bath with her daughter and her two young boys when a pigeon landed in front of them. 

She broke off a corner of the snack and threw it to the bird which immediately flew off with the morsel. 

Ms Fricker's daughter, Toni Bradley, said her mother was approached "seconds later" by the enforcement officer after throwing the food. 

He told her she would be fined £150, but this would be reduced to £100 if she paid it within 14 days.

Now, following the publicity, Nanny is now reviewing the fine!
