In the last issue, Rob Hill and Geoff Shepherd gave a critical account of the Transitional Employment part of the Clubhouse programme. This has produced strong reactions, and here Colin MacLean takes issue with both their premises and their conclusions. What about the user/member view? Watch this space…
KEN JONES of the Leeds school of librarianship, fresh from his triumphant appearance in Private eye's ‘Pseuds corner’ in December, has been bearding the la secretariat about association response to the Cinematograph & Indecent Displays Bill, insofar as its provisions may affect libraries. Readers will be aware that this proposed enactment is another of the ‘If you must do it, do it privately’ type, like the Street Offences Act in the 1950s which got London's tarts out of the alleys and up into the attics.

Examines two important streams of migrant consumer research, specifically the contributions made by the study of cultural values and migrant acculturation. Noting the inadequacies of focusing on just one single perspective, reports an interpretative research conducted with ethnic Chinese migrant consumers. Emergent themes are extracted to illustrate the lived worlds of migrant consumers as they negotiate their way in a new society.
Long before calories and joules were used to indicate energy values in relation to food, popular belief had it that some foods could increase man's output of labour, his physical strength and endurance, even his fertility. The nature of the foods varied over the years. From earliest times, flesh foods have inspired men to “gird their loins” and “put on armour”, but too long at the feasting tables produced sloth of body and spirit. Hunger sharpens the wit, which makes one wonder if that oft‐quoted statement of poverty and hunger before the Great War—“children too hungry learn”—was quite true; it is now so long ago for most of us to remember. Thetruism “An army marches on its stomach” related to food in general and relating feats of strength to individual foods is something more difficult to prove. The brawny Scot owes little to his porridge; the toiling Irish labourer moves mountains of earth, not from the beef steaks he claims to consume, but for the size of the pay‐packet at the end of the week!
The narratives that would give meaning to at least four generations of scholars and practitioners are amplified in the discourse growing out of the elements of technical rationality, pragmatism, evolution, and the rush of different ideas and new institutions that punctuate the Progressive period. The narratives explored below persist in public administration from the beginning of the twentieth century: preparation for the rise of national institutions, the citizen-state relationship, reconciling democracy and administration, and science and scientific management. Throughout the paper, the author's interest in the reconciliation of freedom and order is explored in the relationship between self and community, citizen and nation, and politics and administration.
The Health Congress of the Royal Sanitary Institute was held at Brighton from May 23rd to 27th, 1949. In the course of his inaugural address to the Congress His Grace the Duke of Norfolk, K.G., P.C., G.C.V.O., said: “ Of all the gifts which one may be born with, everyone will agree that Good Health is greatest. It is also the most important. Let us look at Health. What is health? I would hesitate to answer that question in front of the present audience. But I know what the simple answer is—to feel well and to go on feeling well. That, in short, is good health. But, like all precious things, it has to be looked after. And, good or bad, it can play an ever‐important part in the life of each one of us. The fresh air of the countryside and the pure air from the sea are our best safeguards for good health. But in many areas we have too large a crowd to move and too great a distance to cover before they can benefit by these two assets. And the trend in this country is toward more houses, more towns and an increasing population which is becoming too large for the country and may make ever harder the task of prevention of all that is bad. The sea will always be there for those who wish to spend their holidays away from home. But the big cities cannot be expected to empty their people for a day on to the coast. We live in an age of planning. Every government, every government department, and every local authority, plans. They spend colossal sums of money. They show very little return. Is it too much to hope that perhaps fewer people will plan our lives, and that common sense, not money, will be the backbone upon which the health of the nation will exist.”

This paper seeks to draw attention to the importance of appreciating and using ever‐present diversity to achieve increased legitimacy for entrepreneurship education. As such, it aims to draw the reader into a reflective process of discovery as to why entrepreneurship education is important and how such importance can be prolonged.
The paper revisits Gartner's 1985 conceptual framework for understanding the complexity of entrepreneurship. The paper proposes an alternative framework based on the logic of Gartner's framework to advance the understanding of entrepreneurship education. The authors discuss the dimensions of the proposed framework and explain the nature of the dialogic relations contained within.
It is argued that the proposed conceptual framework provides a new way to understand ever‐present heterogeneity related to the development and delivery of entrepreneurship education.
The paper extends an invitation to the reader to audit their own involvement and proximity to entrepreneurship education. It argues that increased awareness of the value that heterogeneity plays in student learning outcomes and programme branding is directly related to the presence of heterogeneity across the dimensions of the conceptual framework.
The paper introduces a simple yet powerful means of understanding what factors contribute to the success or otherwise of developing and delivering entrepreneurship education. The simplicity of the approach suggested provides all entrepreneurship educators with the means to audit all facets of their programme.
Pre‐employment medical examinations with appropriate testing are required in many industries—a basic tenet of Occupational Medicine—and it has long been a recommendation of many in community medicine and environmental health for those food handlers whose close contact with open food, aspects of its preparation, processing, sale, exposure for sale, make their personal health important and in prevention of diseases and may constitute a health hazard to food consumers. Epidemiological studies have revealed too many instances of a human source of disease, especially in milk and water, for this to be denied or under‐estimated. Food poisioning outbreaks caused by a carrier, of chronic or limited duration, enable those investigating such outbreaks to see there could be advantages in medical screening of certain employees especially in certain areas of food trades. The main problem is to decide the extent of the discipline and who should be subject to it. The fact that by far the majority of the examinations and tests will prove negative should not be seen as removing the need for the service. After all, there are a number of similar circumstances in public health. Meat inspection, for example, in which a 100% inspection of all food animals slaughtered for human food is now fully established, it is not suggested that inspections should in any way be reduced despite the fact that a number of the diseases, eg., tuberculosis, no longer occurs as it once did, which was the prime cause of meat inspection being brought into being. Other areas where routine medical examinations reveal satisfactory health with only a few isolated cases requiring attention, is the school medical service. Here, the “de‐bunkers” have had some success, but if children are not regularly examined at vulnerable age levels and especially in between where the occasion demands, there is no question that much will be missed and ill‐health progress to a chronic state.
