Clearly not his own family, given that his own brother so publicly and so quickly abandoned him!” Addressing the union’s LGBT+ conference in Bournemouth this morning, UNISON president Josie Bird was clear that, even in such busy times for activists, the coming general election had to be a priority. “We really are living in unprecedented times.  After all, we have a prime minister who does not respect democracy and thinks he is above the law,” she said. “But now, we have a chance to change all that.

‘ Every vote will count in this election ’
“Every vote will count in this election” and we need to persuade people to register to vote – and to register for a postal vote. It’s crucial to “get that message out in the workplace, to family and friends.” UNISON assistant general secretary Christina McAnea (pictured above) was addressing the union’s LGBT+ conference in Bournemouth this morning, with less than a month to go before the general election. She stressed that research shows that UNISON and its reps are trusted by the membership – and because of that, they have the potential to make a real difference when polling stations open.

The Global Economy of Pulses: Impressive Gains and the Way Forward
By Boubaker Ben Belhassen and Vikas RawalROME, Nov 14 2019 (IPS) Pulses are highly nutritious and their consumption is associated with many health benefits. They are rich in proteins and minerals, high in fibre and have a low fat content. Pulses are produced by plants of the Leguminosae family. These plants have root nodules that absorb inert nitrogen from soil air and convert it into biologically useful ammonia, a process referred to as biological nitrogen fixation. Consequently, the pulse crops do not need any additional nitrogen as fertilizer and help reduce the requirement of fossil fuel-based chemical nitrogen fertili...

Post-traumatic stress disorder in U.S. military members frequently follows a concussion-like brain injury. Until now, it has been unclear why.
