I'm a committed atheist, but my child has become religious – and I'm proud of her for challenging my indoctrination

13 Mar 2017  |  The Independent
The article is a personal account of a parent grappling with their child's growing interest in religion, despite the parent's own atheistic beliefs. The author describes the decision to send their daughter Una to a Church of England school due to its appealing characteristics, despite concerns about religious indoctrination. As Una becomes more involved with the church, the author and her partner Ian, who are atheists, find themselves in unexpected situations, such as arranging for Una's baptism and confirmation. The author reflects on the importance of supporting their child's exploration of faith and identity, even when it challenges their own beliefs. The article highlights the complexities of parenting and the value of allowing children to forge their own paths.

Theft in the Workplace: A Trust Betrayed

14 Jan 2008  |  www.theguardian.com
The article discusses the issue of workplace theft, highlighting that despite a general trust among colleagues, theft is not uncommon. CPP Group reported that 70% of people trust their colleagues completely, yet personal items and money are still stolen from offices. The article mentions a case where Andy Beswick experienced an attempted theft by individuals posing as staff. Zurich Financial Services estimated that workplace theft costs public sector employees £96m over three years. The article also discusses the lack of employer liability in such thefts and the difficulty in getting insurance coverage for workplace theft. Shabazz Nelson from Pantherr Security and Ben Willmott from the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development provide insights on how to handle suspicions of theft and the importance of securing personal belongings at work.

Bad taste

12 Mar 2007  |  www.theguardian.com
The article discusses the quality of food provided in staff restaurants across the UK, highlighting the dominance of large catering companies like Compass Group, Sodexho, Aramark UK, and Elior in the market. It points out the issues with the typical canteen food being unappetising and unhealthy, leading to decreased productivity and poor health among workers. Nutritional therapist Kerry Torrens and author Christopher Wanjek provide insights into the negative impacts of such food on employee well-being. The article also mentions smaller companies like Harbour & Jones and Artizian, which are making strides in offering healthier and more varied food options. The piece ends with contrasting examples of good practice at Ernst & Young's canteen, run by Artizian, and a less favourable account of the canteen at a Morrisons in north-east Scotland.

'We should have been warned'

24 Aug 2005  |  www.theguardian.com
The article discusses the author's personal experience with their daughter's adverse reaction to the 'five-in-one' immunisation (DtaP/IPV/HiB) recommended by the NHS. Despite official assurances that side effects are minimal, the author's child suffered for seven days post-vaccination, prompting concerns and confusion. The author found that information provided by health professionals was inconsistent and often downplayed the potential for severe side effects. After researching and finally reading the patient information leaflet from the vaccine manufacturer Aventis Pasteur, the author discovered that their child's symptoms were known but rare side effects. The article highlights the importance of informed parental decision-making and the need for transparency and access to comprehensive information about vaccinations.
