A fresh start
Tuesday evening marked a milestone in the nationwide search for the next superintendent of the Minneapolis Parks and Recreation Board, which interviewed two finalists during a special meeting of the board. Those finalists are Seve Ghose, the Metro Parks and Recreation Department director in Louisville, Kentucky, and Alfred Bangoura, who is superintendent of recreation in Mecklenburg County, North Carolina, which covers Charlotte. (A third candidate in the running recently dropped out.) The new hire will play a critical role in leading the board, which oversees more than 6,800 acres of public space across the city, as well as 1,740 temporary and full-time employees, and the move follows an unusually divisive 2017 election that preceded the resignation of former superintendent Jayne Miller, who had lead the agency for seven years.

Whoever takes the leadership gig will have a say on how to spend $120 million while … [Read more...] about Looking for ‘a fresh start,’ Minneapolis parks board interviews two superintendent finalists

You spend a significant amount of time in a certain job or position, and while once it provided an acceptable level of professional satisfaction and fulfillment, after a while it no longer does the job and you begin to feel as if you’re ready to move on and make a change. It’s called career fatigue, and for those of us who place a real value on what we choose to do for a living, it shouldn’t be ignored.The negative effects of career fatigue may be more serious than you think—according to a recent article by Forbes, the effects of keeping a job you don’t want can include significant physical and mental health consequences that include added stress, weight gain, increased susceptibility to illness, sleeplessness, and more.So yes, keeping a job you no longer want just might be a bad idea.

PUBLISHED: 16:00 18 April 2018 Andy Warren Danny Rowe, Freddie Sears and Myles Kenlock could all potentially benefit from a change of manager at Portman Road.

Freddie Sears has now not found the net for a year since scoring against Newcastle last April.

Sears is as hard … [Read more...] about Which Ipswich players could benefit from a fresh start under a new manager?
