NEC sets policy on Brexit and so much more

“We are very much involved on Brexit – but the union is also doing much more on the major issues which affect public services and public service workers,” general secretary Dave Prentis told the UNISON national executive council when it met. But Brexit was still a key part both of his report and the debate in the meeting. The situation is changing by the minute, the NEC heard as it met just nine days before Britain is due to leave the EU without a deal. Mr Prentis noted that public services unions from across the world are meeting at the PSI Congress tomorrow, and the experience of colleagues dealing with WTO rules is “it’s public services that suffer as transnational companies come in and take over.” Another priority for UNISON has always been to have “nothing that impinges on the Good Friday Agreement,” a point reiterated strongly by Northern Ireland members. “We cannot tolerate having a no-deal exit,” declared Mr Prentis. The NEC agreed that proposals for “Common Market 2.0” or “Norway +” with the single market and a customs union, best meet the union’s tests on behalf of members, and the union would support the principle of a confirmatory referendum on any agreement, depending on the question, if it proves impossible to have a general election. But, “as a union, we have got to get in first and say what we want for a future relationship with the European Union and the rest of th...

Daily rhythms of biological activity, such as cycles of sleep–wake and feeding–fasting, are coupled to cell-autonomous circadian clocks to synchronize organismal food intake with cellular bioenergetics. Food intake during wake stimulates biosynthesis followed by rest periods of autophagy, which degrades damaged macromolecules and recycles them as nutrients to enhance fitness. In this issue of The EMBO Journal, Pastore et al discovered that regulators of autophagy, TFEB and TFE3, are activated during the rest phase and ultimately drive the expression of Rev-erbα, a component of the core circadian mole...

Yoga has always been a source of strength and conditioning for me. Even as a child I was naturally flexible and athletic. The active, bendy part was easy, but the part of yoga that requires being still, breathing deeply, and quieting of my mind was nearly impossible for me and definitely not enjoyable. It’s a little bit ironic that part later became absolutely necessary to achieve the type of peace I was seeking. With anxiety that manifested as almost paralyzing self-consciousness, my mind was constantly analyzing every situation and circumstance, spending overwhelming amounts of time ruminating on words I had chosen...
