25 Aug Protecting your Child from Cyber Bully

• Teach your children good online habits – Explain the risks of technology, and teach children how to be responsible online. Reduce their risk of becoming cyberbullies by setting guidelines for and monitoring their use of the internet and other electronic media.

• Keep lines of communication open – Regularly talk to your children about their online activities so that they feel comfortable telling you if they are being victimized.

• Watch for warning signs – If you notice changes in your child’s behavior, try to identify the cause as soon as possible. If cyber bullying is involved, acting early can limit the damage.

• Limit availability of personal information – Limiting the number of people who have access to contact information or details about interests, habits, or employment reduces exposure to bullies that you or your child do not know. This may limit the risk of becoming a victim and may make it easier to identify the bully if you or your child are victimized.

• Avoid escalating the situation – Responding with hostility is likely to provoke a bully and escalate the situation. Depending on the circumstances, consider ignoring the issue. Often, bullies thrive on the reaction of their victims. Other options include subtle actions. For example, you may be able to block the messages on social networking sites or stop unwanted emails by changing the email address. If you continue to get messages at the new email address, you may have a stronger case for legal action.

• Document the activity – Keep a record of any online activity (emails, web pages, instant messages, etc.), including relevant dates and times. In addition to archiving an electronic version, consider printing a copy.

TIPS To prevent food poisoning at home

Food poisoning is an illness caused by eating contaminated food. It’s not usually serious and most people get better within a few days without treatment.

In most cases of food poisoning, the food is contaminated by bacteria, such as salmonella or Escherichia coli (E. coli), or a virus, such as the norovirus.

Signs and symptoms

The symptoms of food poisoning usually begin within one to two days after eating contaminated food, although they may start at any point between a few hours and several weeks later.

The main symptoms include:

  • feeling sick (nausea)
  • vomiting
  • diarrhoea, which may contain blood or mucus
  • stomach cramps and abdominal (tummy) pain
  • a lack of energy and weakness
  • loss of appetite
  • a high temperature (fever)
  • aching muscles
  • chills

What to do

Most people with food poisoning recover at home and don’t need any specific treatment, although there are some situations where you should see your GP for advice (see below).

Until you feel better, you should rest and drink fluids to prevent dehydration. Try to drink plenty of water, even if you can only sip it.

Eat when you feel up to it, but try small, light meals at first and stick to bland foods – such as toast, crackers, bananas and rice – until you begin to feel better.

Oral rehydration solutions (ORS), which are available from pharmacies, are recommended for more vulnerable people, such as the elderly and those with another health condition.

In most cases, these symptoms will pass in a few days and you will make a full recovery.

Absenteeism is an employee’s intentional or habitual absence from work. Without a doubt, absenteeism is a costly problem for any business even though the impact on small businesses can be especially severe and devastating.

Excessive absenteeism inevitably leads to declining productivity which poses a major threat to a company’s finances and eventually corporate morale. For that reason, your company may have to put a solution-enabled policy in place to ensure that employees are present at work, both physically and mindfully.

Essentially, such a policy is facilitated by advancement in technology which has made it possible for employers to deal appropriately with the menace of employee absenteeism. Therefore, by having a formal attendance policy, employers can control excessive absenteeism by creating an atmosphere where all and sundry give regard to attendance and punctuality. This can help to ensure that attendance problems are dealt with fairly.

Such tools and policy include Robust Attendance System; Human Resources Application, Payroll System, amongst others.
