UJM Cancelled?? We can But hope

The government has drawn up plans to scrap its official jobs website, Universal Jobmatch, after recognising it is too expensive and that its purpose is undermined by fake and repeat job entries, according to leaked internal communications from the Department of Work and Pensions (DWP).
A cache of documents seen by the Guardian details how the government's main website for job hunters – which tens of thousands of unemployed people have been required by the DWP to sign up to – is likely to be jettisoned when the contract for the service comes up for renewal in two years.

At the start of March, the DWP removed more than 120,000, or one-fifth, of all job adverts from over 180 employer accounts, because the ads did not abide by the site's terms and conditions.

O'Donnell said: job centres used to have good checks before the site was launched. It used to be, to put a job in a job centre, a recruitment agency had to call and identify themselves, go through various checks and identify the employer." However without those checks he said many more anonymous postings were being hosted under the DWP's logo. "Anonymous job adverts are terrible. [The job] may or may not exist. It might just be a fishing trip for other information."

Two posts ago

this is the transcript of the appeal for actively seeking work

the world is wrong?

Most days i have been feeling like the world isnt the way it should be, That i somehow stepped out of the real world into a dark mirror world, where thing are not right.

Things dont seem to be right any more

Important News..Interesting Hidden story

More detail is set out in regulation 18 of the Regulations. Regulation 18(1) provides that:
“… a person shall be expected to have to take more than two steps in any week unless taking one or two steps is all that is reasonable for that person to do in that week.”
Mr Commissioner Williams held at para 10 & 14 of CJSA/1814/2007 (case law)
That is illustrated by this appeal. C was required by his Agreement to take 6 steps each week and several other steps from time to time. That is clearly more steps than the regulation requires of him to meet the test of “actively seeking work”. And it is more steps than the Agreement asked him to record. On the facts, the secretary of state’s representative now accepts that C took four steps in the week and that those four steps met the test in section 7(1).” 
Further, there is nothing in the Act or the Regulations requiring that a claimant must comply with everything in the Agreement. The reverse is the case. Theagreement must comply with the law. To be valid, a jobseeker’s agreement must comply “with the prescribed regulations in force”: section 9(1) of the Act. The pattern of the legislation is that a jobseeker’s agreement must comply with the test of actively seeking work in sections 1(2)(c) and 7 of the Act and regulation 18 of the Regulations and not the other way round.”
The Outcome of this case – Success!
Using this piece of case law the appeal was allowed, because the judge determined John (the appellant) was actively seeking work as per section 7 of the Jobseeker’ Act 1995 and he took significantly more than 2 steps to in order to have the best prospects of seeking work (Reg. 18 JSA Regs 1996)!

UJM fraud

The swoop comes following claims jobseekers paid for background checks for ‘non-existent’ roles with Options 4 Families.
Candidates told the M.E.N they had been interviewed at a luxury office inside the Manchester One building on Portland Street, but heard nothing from the company after paying £65 for background checks on offers of employment.
The £18,000-a-year trainee child counsellor jobs were advertised on several websites - including the government’s own Universal Jobmatch site.

Obesity and 5 a day

 the 5 a day is a myth no health benefits, in fact eating too much fruit destroys the enamel on the teeth the 5 a day was made to sell more fruit and veg Society is living longer.. but they are also dying younger at the same time..  the increase of eating 5 a day during which time there has been an increase in so called obesity. Hpowever at the same time the BMI limit for saying someone is obese has been dropped so at one time a person went to bed of "healthy" weight but because of the change in figures, they woke up obese.. the whole obesity doesnt take into account genetics, even during the 2nd world war with rationing you got fat people not because they ate a lot of "bad" stuff  its because of genetics.. yes we are more sedentary,  but you can be healthy if you are fat..ook at a lot of the sports stars, they are technically obese, using theBMI, there are exceptions if you are of a different race, or ethnicity.. there are exceptions if you are a woman, and it depends on the age of the person as well..the BMI was based on insurance figures in the 1930's didnt count those who didnt get insurance,  it was a limited pool of people to extract size data from..then they reduced the figures in the 90's and the 2000s to make more people "obese".. Just at the time when the diet industry makes tens of billions off the idea you have to be thin to be happy, that you have to be thin to be worthy so no wonder the obesity groups are so happy that diets dont usually work in fact diets have been known to increase weight gain..which means more money for the industry..
