Screw that Poop

The last few weeks I feel like things have been going a little downhill for me, not in terms of sobriety and staying sober, more my emotional and physical strength.   I don’t really know what is going on, and its often so hard to seek help when you are in the middle of treatments […]

 The enemy drive on Pusan from the west along the Chinju-Masan corridor compelled General Walker to concentrate there all the reinforcements then arriving in Korea. These included the 5th Regimental Combat Team and the 1st Provisional Marine Brigade—six battalions of infantry with supporting tanks and artillery. Eighth Army being stronger there than at any other […]

Ok. So I’ve been undergoing an overhaul the past few weeks. It all started when my aunt asked me to donate some things to a charity initiative she’s spearheading. I decided to clear out all my cupboards and get rid of everything that I didn’t use and start to declutter as I plan the big […]

Supply networks need to exhibit stability in order to remain functional. Here, we apply a generalized modeling (GM) approach, which has a strong pedigree in the analysis of dynamical systems, to study the stability of real‐world supply networks. It goes beyond purely structural network analysis approaches by incorporating material flows, which are defining characteristics of supply networks. The analysis focuses on the network of interactions between material flows, providing new conceptualizations to capture key aspects of production and inventory policies. We provide stability analyses of two contrasting real‐world networks—that of an industrial engine manufacturer and an industry‐level network in the luxury goods sector. We highlight the criticality of links with suppliers that involve the dispatch, processing, and return of parts or sub‐assemblies, cyclic motifs that involve separate paths from a common supplier to a common firm downstream, and competing demands of different end products at specific nodes. Based on a critical discussion of our findings in the context of the supply chain management literature, we generate five propositions to advance knowledge and understanding of supply network stability. We discuss the implications of the propositions for the effective management, control, and development of supply networks. The GM approach enables fast screening to identify hidden vulnerabilities in extensive supply networks.

WHEN we launched our annual competition to find the UK’s top mums earlier this year, our celebrity judges – TV presenter Rochelle Humes, bestselling author Giovanna Fletcher, Good Morning Britain’s Kate Garraway and The Sun columnist Deborah James – had no idea how tough it would be to choose their champions. We had over 1,000 nominations vying for the crowns of best Stepmum, Survivor Mum, Single Mum, Foster Mum and Supermum Of The Year, which came with the top-notch prize of a Fabulous makeover and a two-night break worth £1,000 at spa Champneys. This year’s Supermum Of The Year is the amazing Thuto Mali – a full-time campaigner who has saved her sister in more ways than one This year’s Supermum is full-time campaigner, Thuto Mali, 37, who lives in London with her son Kayan, two. She was nominated by her sister Manzi, 25. Manzi said: “My sister has saved my life in more ways than one. She guided me through life when our mother died in 2001 and became a second mum to me. “Thuto’s been my rock over the past few months, as I suffered a stillbirth and then had a seizure and almost died. “She’s also raising the kindest little boy, Kayan, who suffers from chronic fatigue syndrome, while campaigning to make childcare more affordable for parents. I feel so lucky to be able to call her my sister.” Thuto has been there for her sister Manzi through thick and thin while also raising Kayan, who suffers from chronic fatigue syndrome Thuto says: “When Manzi called to tell me that I’d won Fabulous Supermum Of The Year, I couldn’t believe it. When our mum Nomathemba died aged just 39 from heart failure, I was there for Manzi because she’s my sister and I love her – I never expected any recognition. “I started campaigning after becoming a mum to Kayan in 2016. I was on my own, which was tough, and then I was forced to turn down my dream job as a communications officer paying £32k last year, because I couldn’t afford to put Kayan in nursery full-time. “It seemed so unfair, so in July I signed up to the Save the Children campaign to encourage the government to help parents with upfront childcare costs. These are the top five super-women who came out on top in this year’s Fabulous Mum Of The Year awards! “Currently, parents who are claiming Universal Credit have to pay their monthly childcare bill upfront. “I then launched a Change.org petition, which gained nearly 80,000 signatures in just a few days. I was invited to give evidence on why the current system needed to change at the Work and Pensions Committee in Parliament in October. “But days later, Manzi suffered a stillbirth at 28 weeks and I dropped everything. Just a few days after she was sent home from hospital, she had a seizure while calling me. “I called an ambulance and she was rushed to hospital where they found she had sepsis. Manzi was put in an induced coma and I sat with her until she recovered. “It was terrifying, but we’re now closer than ever. I’m taking Manzi to the spa with me – she deserves a break.” Thanks to Balloonista. Visit Champneys.com.
