In 2006 Jonathan Ericsson Red Wings Jersey , at a time when the New Zealand National Police was under a great deal of scrutiny, the New Zealand Parliament directed the Minister of Police to rewrite the 50 year old Police Act. The task fell to v Police Superintendent Hamish McArdle, who immediately created a task force and asked them for their suggestions o how to accomplish the task.


Because of the spotlight they were under, the task force decided that the traditional methods of consultancy – which usually involved using a set of consultants who would write a document and then perhaps post it in the public library – would not suffice this time around. Instead Darren Helm Red Wings Jersey , the superintendent asked his team, “How can we connect with people about what kind of policy they want to govern their police in the 21st century?” To answer that, the superintendent and his team determined that their effort would be driven by two criteria – transparency and engaging as many people as possible in the process.


An open and transparent process, they felt Martin Frk Red Wings Jersey , would go a long way toward removing the suspicion and cynicism that the New Zealand public felt toward their police. In order to further build trust, they had to go beyond the usual experts they might consult on this matter and reach deep into the people they serve – including youth and minorities – to get their input and opinions.


They decided on a two-year phased approach using multiple methods to obtain the input they wanted and needed. In addition to traditional means of obtaining input, they decided to turn to the Web – especially the tools available through Web 2.0 – as the key part of their strategy. After a great deal of experimentation, they succeeded in finding the right balance of tools to get the input they needed. In fact Luke Glendening Red Wings Jersey , it was during their final phase when they posted a wiki to help them write the act itself that they began to see the true value of the Web 2.0 tools they were using, as they began receiving as many as 10,000 inputs a day. And while that’s not to say that all of the inputs were useful, McArdle believes that using Web 2.0 in the way they did was the key to the success of their initiative.


“One of the key outcomes Henrik Zetterberg Red Wings Jersey ,” McArdle said during an interview, “was to help the parliamentarians know that our product was well consulted – that it had community buy-in.” Another surprising result was the new ideas they received. “If this was a good process you would think we’d have heard all the ideas there could be. But the wiki brought in fresh ideas. While most of the ideas haven’t been accepted this time around, they’ve introduced new ideas, ones we wouldn’t have thought of Anthony Mantha Red Wings Jersey , and brought a creative tension to the debate.”


In other words, it accomplished precisely what they wanted it to accomplish and more. It wasn’t easy. As McArdle freely admits, there were a lot of failures along the way – it wasn’t a case of build it and they will come. In fact, they did build it and found that few were interested and no one came. But at the end of the day Jimmy Howard Red Wings Jersey , the utilization of Web 2.0 tools for policy deliberation and development proved to be a major success and a model for what we might look forward to in the future.

When you think of nursing homes Tomas Tatar Red Wings Jersey , you probably think of a room full of elderly people sitting around in wheel chairs. In some places, this is the case but in others it is different. Older people tend to need a lot of assistance with certain tasks and we get so caught up in our day to day lives that it is difficult to understand their needs. Most families get caught up in their jobs and own families and place their loved ones in these homes. Little do they know that these are not fun places to live? Aging people should have the chance to live a comfortable life at home and this can be easily done. Retirement communities and senior living programs are great, but they must be right for the person who is being looked after.

If you enjoy looking after people, specifically people who are getting older Gustav Nyquist Red Wings Jersey , start your own business by helping families out with their aging family members. As much as some people want to care for their own family members, it is also a very hard job that takes a lot of time and it is okay to get help. If you want to make money doing something you love, this is a perfect opportunity to help people out.

One problem that most people have when it comes to this help is the cost. Paying for your loved one to be in a place where they will be constantly looked after can cost more than sending your child off to college. Not a lot of people can afford this care, but a lot of people have parents that they have to look after. If you want to help someone out Justin Abdelkader Red Wings Jersey , start a business by going to their homes and helping out with their aging loved ones. Help cook dinner and keep the place clean and you can also make sure that they get medications if they have any. You can charge much less than nursing homes and still make a great living. The advantage to this is that the elderly person still gets to live at home and enjoy the freedom that they have always had.

No one wants to see their loved one go through something that is stressful to them, especially if they are getting older and they are entering their last years. You want them to have the best last year's they can spending time with family and the people that you love. Putting them in a nursing home is uncomfortable and they do not really get the attention that you are paying for. Sure, they might be safe but it is not the way anyone should li. Cheap Jerseys From China   Wholesale Soccer Jerseys China   Wholesale Hockey Jerseys From China   Wholesale Cheap Nike NFL Jerseys   Wholesale Authentic College Jerseys   Wholesale New NBA Jerseys   Cheap Jerseys   Cheap Jerseys China   Cheap Nike NFL Jerseys   Cheap Nike NBA Jerseys
