Smoking ban

Writing about web page http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/magazine/6583865.stm

Call me an insensitive non-smoker, but this makes little sense to me:

Smokers should be given time off work to quit before the 1 July ban, NHS experts say.

Do smokers need time off to stop smoking?? I thought that not smoking was something you could do whilst doing other things?

The Public

Writing about web page http://www.thepublic.com/index.asp

It's funny how things work out…

The PublicTwo years ago I had an interview for the position of PR Assistant at The Public Arts Centre in West Bromwich. Luckily for me, I didn't get the job.

The Public has so far cost £40m and has already gone into administration. In April this year, 8 people were made redundant including the projects Chief Executive, Sylvia King. Administrators, Pricewaterhouse Coopers said at the time that a further 14 job cuts were regrettable but necessary (BBC News Article)

There seems to be mixed feelings about The Public – the council support the project but members of the local public seem to be confused as to what or why the building exists. It will be interesting to see whether the centre ever opens at all…

The Public featured on the BBC News last night and seeing the trouble it faced just made me glad that I was never offered the job! It's funny how things seem to work out for the best – even if you don't always realise it at the time.
