Abstract

The suggestion that there is a causal relationship between diet and delinquent behaviour is not new. In 1893 Egleston, an engineer at Columbia University, attempting to sponsor research into nutrition wrote: ‘As a trustee of a large charitable organization … I have been using proper methods of cooking as a prevention of crime with great success …’ While in this country in 1900 Miles writing about prisons and the treatment of criminals suggested: ‘In these we have people who have somehow or other gone wrong. Most of us fail to reflect why; but few would deny that it might possibly be the food … If it were, then here is our chance. We have them in our hands as we have no other class in this free country: we can help them, if needs be, against their will, until with better health the better will itself may come.’

Abstract

The development of policies governing the provision of food to those who become the responsibility of the prison system, has been subject to controversy throughout the centuries. Today the management of food services in Her Majesty's prisons has reached a high level of efficiency, both in terms of food quality and quantity, and good value for money for the tax payer.

Abstract

Revised dietary scales shown in Table 1, were introduced in November 1985 and they are not radically different from their predecessors. However, analysis reveals a numbers of significant changes in the balance of nutrients and food components. The daily meals now provided less energy from fat, and more from complex carbohydrates; they are lower in saturated fat and higher in unsaturated fats; and there is an increase in fibre.

Abstract

Presents 35 abstracts from the 2001 Employment Research Unit Annual conference held at Cardiff Business School in September 2001. Attempts to explore the theme of changing politics of employment relations beyond and within the nation state, against a background of concern in the developed economies at the erosion of relatively advanced conditions of work and social welfare through increasing competition and international agitation for more effective global labour standards. Divides this concept into two areas, addressing the erosion of employment standards through processes of restructuring and examining attempts by governments, trade unions and agencies to re‐create effective systems of regulation. Gives case examples from areas such as India, Wales, London, Ireland, South Africa, Europe and Japan. Covers subjects such as the Disability Discrimination Act, minimum wage, training, contract workers and managing change.

Abstract

OUR readers need no apology from us for the attention given to Library Training in these pages. The amount of dissatisfaction with the present state of affairs, if it may be judged from the gossip and letters that reach us, is of some proportions. It is not to be supposed that complaints are necessarily justified. They may be made in the natural chagrin of disappointment by candidates who have failed. Alternatively, there may be reasons which have a disinterested origin. The record of passes and failures shows that in December there was a dêbacle in candidates in the subject of cataloguing, which at least merits thought. In earlier issues it has been suggested by our writers that examinations twice yearly encourage experiments in sitting. There has also been the suggestion that librarians place too much stress on qualifications for their juniors and urge them to struggle with subjects for which they cannot be ready. To pass in cataloguing a student must be able to catalogue anything from a novel to an academic thesis in Anglo‐Norman French on Phlogiston, supposing that to be possible!
