I would put this as a must-read (adoption case, dynamite)


suesspiciousminds

The case is very fact-specific (the facts are extraordinary) but it is still very important.

I’ve written before about the leave to oppose adoption case law and whether this is a meaningful legal right given that there are no reported cases of an adoption being successfully opposed (there’s one law report of a Court being persuaded to make a Residence Order rather than adoption, but the child remaining with the prospective adopters).

For it to be a meaningful legal right, there must be some set of circumstances which would result in the opposition to adoption resulting in placement back in the birth family. But, the consequences of that for the recruitment and retention of adopters is massive.

TED Ideas in Business aims to shake up the same old thinking on professional development


TED Blog

TED Ideas in Business are playlists that bring together talks of interest to professional audiences. Here, the art for "Hidden Trends and Systems" and "Skillful Presentation." TED Ideas in Business are playlists that bring together talks of interest to professional audiences. Here, the art for “Hidden Trends and Systems” and “Skillful Presentation.”

For many, the words “professional development” conjure up memories of sitting in a human resources office, watching a series of awkward training videos and then taking a mandatory quiz. The TED Distribution Team realized: it doesn’t need to be this way. Earlier this year, they started to think about how companies could use TED Talks to get people thinking about their professional lives.

The team is now rolling out TED Ideas in Business, a collection of 25+ playlists curated around big topics in the professional world, like effective leadership, career development, the future of work, and good decision-making. The playlists range from “The Psychology of Success” to “Democratizing Innovation” to “Invasion of the Cyber-Workers.” Each list contains talks that can help crystallize goals, start…

Health Issues After Domestic Violence; Sexual Violence; Harassment/Stalking; and Human Trafficking


Researching Reform

This survey may be under the radar, but it’s making waves. Having garnered an unprecedented response when it was first published, “Health Issues After Domestic Violence” is being accessed internationally and completed by people all over the world.

Designed to assess the full extent of the effects of domestic violence, for both men and women and to understand better what could be done to support these victims, this survey is a hugely important component in tackling this issue.

If you have a moment, and it’s relevant to you, please think about doing the survey – it’s very short. For those of us lucky enough not to have to have experienced such things, please do share this survey with your networks if you can.

Many thanks to the super clever and courageous @ABeautifulMind1 for sharing this survey with us.
