THE EYE MAGAZINE - ISSUE 17

Welcome to the November Edition of

“The Eye Magazine”

Tightening the North East belt has become second nature!

How severely the latest government cuts affect individuals is very much dependent on who they are and what their job is but for us in the North East collectively it’s just one more cross to bear and another example of yet again having to tighten the old belt. Perhaps the only good thing from our point of view is that we’re pretty much used to commentators announcing that ‘one of the hardest hit by the latest proposals will be the North East’ and have consequently developed a survival technique that continues to serve us well. Since the last issue Middlesborugh FC Manger Gordon Strachan has left the club. We feel it is wholly appropriate at this point to congratulate him on not only doing the right thing but doing it in a manner that showed both enormous dignity and a lack of the greed that has contributed to football being in its current perilous position. But never mind, we’ve always got Christmas to look forward to. It’s amazing to think that our next edition will be concentrating on the festive season. How time flies! Happy reading.

Stan’s the man at North East Truck and Van thanks to college course A Redcar student has turned his life around and started a whole new career by retraining in health and safety after being made redundant.

at the college, which I have now passed. There are so many courses Thirty-five year old Stan Peverley, from on offer and so Redcar, lost his job as a HGV driver in April much support 2009 and decided to undertake a NEBOSH available, that General Certificate at Redcar & Cleveland even in these College in September last year to kick start a difficult times it is possible to turn your new career in health and safety. employment fortunes around.” Since then, Stan has never looked back, with the qualification helping him to secure a role as Group Health, Safety and Quality Manager with leading commercial vehicle retailer, North East Truck and Van, at its dealership in Billingham.

Colin Willis, Health and Safety Programmes Co-ordinator at Redcar & Cleveland College, said: “Stan’s success is a direct result of his hard work and shows what can be achieved in the hardest of circumstances. It is never too late in life to retrain and learn new skills.

Stan was so impressed with Redcar & Cleveland College’s learning facilities that he was one of the first students to enrol on a brand new course offered by the college - the NEBOSH National Diploma in Occupational Health and Safety.

NEBOSH (The National Examination Board in Occupational Safety and Health) recently granted accreditation to the College to deliver its flagship qualification, the National Diploma in Occupational Health and Safety.

After securing funding from his employer to study for the diploma, he is very much looking forward to progressing his studies and career in the industry. He said: “I chose to study further at Redcar & Cleveland College as the standard of teaching is excellent, the facilities are second to none in the area and my previous experience with the college was very good. The college has helped me immensely and without the support and courses available from the college I would not be in the role I am today. “I also took the opportunity earlier this year to enrol on the Preparation to Teach in the Lifelong Learning Sector course, also PAGE 4

The College’s new specialist health and safety area, part of the new Higher Education Centre, was also recently opened and dedicated as a NEBOSH Training Centre by Chief Executive of NEBOSH, Teresa Budworth. The College is now able to offer people across the region the best in health and safety courses after the leading examinations awarding body recognised its excellence in training. Further details of the range of courses available to students can be found in the college’s range of Prospectuses, which are available to download from www.cleveland.ac.uk or by calling 01642 473132.

Just like buses!

The old saying that ‘after waiting hours for a bus several come along at once’ has never been better illustrated than by the current crop of ‘reality’ TV shows. After something of a dearth over the summer we now have ‘Strictly Come Dancing,’ ‘X Factor’ and ‘The Apprentice’ running concurrently and that has to be a bit of a treat for most TV fans because in different ways they are all un-missable! The singular theme running through all three shows is that they all feature contestants who have absolutely no right to be considered part of the human race - never mind potential winners. In ‘Strictly,’ for instance the ‘late’ and extremely unlamented Paul Daniels demonstrated better than most how not to dance and made even the incredibly immobile Peter Shilton look like Fred Astaire. (It has to be said, though, that he handled his exit with a dignity we have rarely seen from him in the past.) And the fact that Ann Widdicomb survived for as long as she did merely demonstrates the perversity of the voting public. In the first six or seven weeks of ‘X Factor,’ meanwhile, we’ve had the usual conglomerate of talent, rubbish and insanity but fortunately Simon Cowell and company are eventually able to separate most of the wheat from the chaff. The fact that Wagner Carrilho lasted more than two weeks, however, shows that even they can’t control the aforementioned perverse voting. The real contradiction in the series, though, is that while we all appreciate Simon’s ability to convert seemingly ordinary performers into international stars we can never be totally convinced that his patronage to any particular performer has more to do with increasing his own already considerable fortune than with promoting the potential in the artiste. PAGE 6

The last – and certainly the most controversial of the three – is ‘The Apprentice.’ Having selected the apparent ‘cream’ from the many thousands of applicants the programme and the £100,000 a year ‘apprenticeship’ on offer attracts, we are left to wonder how bad the people who didn’t make it must have been. The common denominator amongst most of the super egos that make up the contestant list is a fascinating combination of arrogance and incompetence. Statements like ‘You do the work and I lead’ have already led to the demise of the toffee nosed Dan Harris whose management ethic was described by Alan Sugar’s aide and football guru Karren Brady as ‘standing around shouting orders.’ And how Laura Moore survived the fact that she turned down an offer of exclusivity with Boots is beyond most of us. Despite all that though, all three are programmes that – once you become involved – are impossible to ignore. And for those among you who like a flutter, an each way treble on Stella English (the Apprentice), Matt Cardle (X Factor) and Pamela Stephenson (Strictly) might just make you a bit of dosh. Don’t say you weren’t told!”

Puns for those with a higher i.Q. – That’s you, of course! We have frequently demonstrated how fascinating the English language can be and we make no apologies for once again highlighting that concept with the following series of puns that can only be described as intelligent humour. We hope you enjoy them! • Those who jump off a bridge in Paris are in Seine. • A man's home is his castle, in a manor of speaking. • Dijon vu - the same mustard as before. • Practice safe eating - always use condiments. • Shotgun wedding - A case of wife or death. • A man needs a mistress just to break the monogamy. • A hangover is the wrath of grapes. • Dancing cheek-to-cheek is really a form of floor play. • Does the name Pavlov ring a bell? • Condoms should be used on every conceivable occasion. • Reading while sunbathing makes you well red. • A bicycle can't stand on its own because it is two tired. • What's the definition of a will? (It's a dead giveaway.) • Time flies like an arrow. Fruit flies like a banana. • In democracy your vote counts. In feudalism your count votes. • A chicken crossing the road is poultry in motion. • If you don't pay your exorcist, you get repossessed • With her marriage, she got a new name and a dress. • The man who fell into an upholstery machine is fully recovered. • You feel stuck with your debt if you can't budge it. • Every calendar's days are numbered. • A lot of money is tainted – ‘Taint yours and ‘taint mine. • A boiled egg in the morning is hard to beat. • He had a photographic memory that was never developed. • A midget fortune-teller who escapes from prison is a small medium at large. • Once you've seen one shopping centre, you've seen a mall. • Bakers trade bread recipes on a knead-to-know basis. • Acupuncture - a jab well done.

Coffee break humour The medical lecturer was addressing some students on the X-ray he had on the screen. ‘Now, Jones, it is obvious from this X-ray that this man had one leg shorter than the other and therefore limped badly. What would you do in a case like this?’ ‘I’d probably limp as well sir.’ An old tramp approached a man in the street and said ‘Excuse me sir, but would you give me fifty pence for a sandwich?’ ‘I don’t know,’ replied the man, ‘I’d have to see it first.’ PAGE 8

THE EYE MAGAZINE - ISSUE 17

Gems from ‘Only Fools.’ Without doubt the most successful and well loved comedy series of the last twenty years was ‘Only Fools and Horses’ and while we are still able to catch it on some of the Sky channels it is well worth remembering some of the absolute gems that the programme – through writer John Sullivan – gave the world. See how many of these you remember! At Trigger’s grandmother’s funeral Del ordered a large whiskey only for Rodney to announce that this was the wrong time to be ‘shanting it up.’ In his defence Del turned to Trigger and asked him what his gran would have thought if they all just stood round moping. ‘She’d have loved it,’ said Trigger. ‘She was a miserable old cow.’ Grandad was warning Del about the perils of being involved in a heavy card school. ‘I was in one once where the cards were marked and I lost a fortune,’ he said. ‘Didn’t you know they were marked, Grandad?’ asked Del. ‘Oh yes,’ said Grandad, ‘I marked them, but I wasn’t very good at cards.’ Rodney came down to breakfast in a miserable mood and Albert told him to cheer up because life wasn’t that bad. ‘Not that bad,’ says Rodney, ‘believe me Albert, if there was such a thing as reincarnation with my bloody luck I’d come back as myself.’ Del, bemoaning his lot in life, said ‘I deserve a bit of the good life after all my hard work but what do I get? I live half a mile up in the sky in this council built Lego set, I run a three wheel van with a bald tyre and I drink in a wine bar where the only thing with a vintage is the governor’s wife.’ Crime is rife on the Trotter’s estate and Del was telling Rodney about an indecent assault that had happened on Friday PAGE 10

night. ‘Was it reported?’ asked Rodney. ‘Yes,’ said Del, I bumped into the victim on Wednesday morning after she’d been to the police station to report it. ‘Hang on,’ said Rodney. ‘The assault took place on Friday night, how come it took her until Wednesday to report it?’ ‘Because,’ said Del, ‘she didn’t know she’d been indecently assaulted until the bloke’s cheque bounced.’ Rodney’s assessment of his life: ‘I am 24 years old with two GCEs, 13 years of schooling and three terms at an adult education centre behind me and what have I become? I’m a lookout.’ Del criticises Rodney because he wants to clean out the garage and get rid of the rubbish they’ve accumulated. ‘Del,’ said Rodney, ‘we have a load of old Showaddywaddy LPs under an old Triumph Herald tyre and an artificial limb. They’re not going to make headlines on the Antiques Roadshow.’ ‘Those LPs are collector’s items,’ said Del. ‘In that case,’ said Rodney, ‘let’s find a one legged Showaddywaddy freak and flog ‘em to him. And if he turns up to collect them in a Triumph Herald we’ve had a result!’

Partnership approach will bring rewards for With only a week and a half to complete the East Cleveland challenge the volunteers are keen to draw down local support from local companies Cleveland Fire Brigade’s Prince’s Trust Team have risen to the challenge of revamping a rundown section of a community based area of East Cleveland.

Volunteers from the Prince’s Trust (Team 19) have been working closely with Cleveland Fire Brigade to undertake a community team challenge at New Marske Sports Club, in New Marske, East Cleveland. The team, made up of young people and Brigade staff, are regenerating the outside area of the sports club which entails: relaying the path, renovating the outside seating area, improving the interior of the Portacabin and renovating the disabled access onto the property, among other tasks.

and supporters.

Shelly Walker, from Cleveland Fire Brigade and Chris Talbot, seconded from the RAF who are working on the project, said: “There’s lots of work to be done so any donations would be really helpful. We’re improving the site, making new signs and making the place look pleasant. We are hoping that this will be a success and bring the community to the sports club.” Anyone wishing to find out more about the project should call Shelly 07725956572 or Chris 07738457109.

“Prevent a wreck with a two minute check” A SCHEME by partners to drive down road traffic collisions this winter starts with a set of free vehicle safety clinics this week. Cleveland Fire Brigade along with Middlesbrough Council and North Eastern Tyres and Exhausts (NETE) will be carrying out winter vehicle safety checks throughout the winter season to prevent against the typically high number of incidents during the season. Experts will be on hand at various locations across Teesside to assist drivers prepare for the coming winter months. Car owners will benefit from a free safety check involving: •Tyres checked for wear & tear using depth gauges and checks for damage to the side walls •Lights/ indicators checked •Windscreen wipers checked for perished/ split rubbers •Washer fluid topped up •Antifreeze checked (by NETE) In addition the team, including road safety staff from Middlesbrough Council, will be talking to drivers about safe road management this winter and the importance of servicing and keeping equipment updated.

Simon Weastell, from Cleveland Fire Brigade, said: “In April, May and June this year we had a spike in the increase in road traffic collisions (RTCs) in the Middlesbrough District and a few of those collisions involved extricating casualties from vehicles. We recognised with our Partners that we needed to tackle the problem and are happy the supermarkets have let us use their premises.” FREE vehicle safety checks are taking place at: •Tesco Coulby Newham on: Friday 12 November at 10.00am - 2.00pm •Morrisons Berwick Hills on: Friday 10 December at 10.00am - 2.00pm

Coffee break humour

Two drunks – Sean and Patrick - staggered into a bar in Dublin and as Sean ordered two double whiskeys Patrick collapsed unconscious on the floor. ‘Make that one,’ said Patrick. ‘The great thing about Sean is he always knows when he’s had enough!’ An employer angrily asked his secretary why she was late yet again. ‘Sorry,’ she said, ‘but I overslept.’ ‘What’ he yelled, ‘you don’t mean you sleep at home, as well?’ ‘Doctor,’ said the old man, ‘every time I close my eyes to go to sleep I see pink crocodiles.’ ‘Have you seen a psychiatrist?’ asked the doctor. ‘No,’ was the reply, ‘only pink crocodiles.’ PAGE 14

New Habits

Start saving money and reduce your food waste, and make the most of the food you buy. Here are our top tips ... • Why not start writing a shopping list - Did you know that half of us make a shopping list all or some of the time, but half don’t stick to it in the store. Try making 2010 the year of the shopping list and sticking to it! • Try planning weekly menus - Take the effort out of thinking what you are going to cook each night, and wondering if you have the ingredients to make it, by planning weekly menus. By buying ingredients for the delicious meals we’ve planned at the supermarket, we will be less likely to buy foods we won’t get round to using up. • There really is such a thing as a free lunch - Simply by using what’s already in the fridge, or last night’s leftovers for a packed lunch at work, we can save between £3.00 and £5.00 a day. • Get friendly with your freezer - There’s not much that can’t be frozen for later. Freeze your leftover festive foods such as meats and cheeses to eat in the New Year. • Double up on family favourites - When you’re cooking dishes such as Bolognese, chilli, soups and casseroles, cook one for now and freeze one for later. That way you will have a ready made meal when you get in on these cold nights. • Store cupboard essentials - Keeping essentials such as oils, sauces, beans, pasta and rice in the store cupboard means that there’ll always be something to create a quick meal with odds and ends in the fridge which might have been forgotten otherwise. • Perfect Portions - One of the reasons we throw away food is because we cook too much! Its easy to cook too much of foods such as pasta, rice and potatoes, so use the Love Food hate Waste portion calculator to help you buy and cook just the right amount of food for yourself, your family and your friends. Log onto www.lovefoodshatewaste.com for more information.

What Should I do with Unwanted Electrical Goods? Waste electronic and electrical equipment (commonly referred to as “WEEE”) such as phones, televisions, fridges, household gadgets and tools and computers is one of the fastest growing types of waste in the UK; we threw away over one million tonnes of it last year alone. Much of this waste ends up in landfill, where lead and other toxins can cause soil and water contamination: but is possible to repair and recycle many electrical items, or to extract components, such as precious metals, plastic and steel. So how do we dispose of electronic waste? If you are buying a new appliance, ask the store what you should do with it. Some retailers will take back old electrical items in store, while others will direct you to your local recycling centre. At Dunsdale and Warrenby we have containers specifically for electronic goods. We also provide a bulky waste collection service. If you are getting rid of something in good working order, consider donating it to a friend, family or local school, hospital, residential home or suchlike.

Battery Recycling

Currently over 1 billion batteries are thrown away in Britain every year. By recycling batteries we can reduce landfill and recover hazardous waste. We will also help meet the target of recycling over 25% of the batteries used by 2012. We have battery buckets for household batteries to be deposited in our Council Office Reception areas. Batteries can also be taken to Asda, Tesco or Morrisons stores.

If you have any questions about our waste and recycling services, please contact the council on 01642 774 774 or visit www.redcar-cleveland.gov.uk/recycling PAGE 18

Make the most of your chicken. It’s amazing that in an age where constant research and modern technology are frequently used to promote healthy eating, the old and trusted methods that served our parents and grandparents well for so long seem to have been discarded without trace. And since details of the current cost cutting by the government have been released, feeding a family on something of a budget has also become more important. In which case we have decided to examine both the wonderful value and the exceptional nutrients a chicken can provide, These days a frozen chicken big enough to feed a family of six can be purchased for around four pounds. Cooked with plenty of vegetables and home made Yorkshire puddings (a combination that will add a mere couple of pounds) it will provide a nutritional and filling meal for around a pound each. To some, though, that would be the end and the remnants of the meal would be discarded. What a real shame! The chicken carcass and the remaining meat (wings, legs, underside etc) are in themselves a source of additional nutrition and are sufficient to create another full meal for the family. Chicken stew or broth is a delicious way to use up the leftovers and in the forthcoming winter months can make a really warming and filling meal. Here’s how. You will need: the carcass and remaining meat ; 3 large potatoes; 2 carrots; 2 sticks of celery; a cupful of garden peas; a parsnip; 1 leek; 1 large onion; a chicken stock cube; salt and pepper to taste. Take all the remaining meat from the bones and carcass and put to one side. Place the bones and carcass in a large saucepan and cover with cold water. Bring to the boil, turn down the heat and simmer for around thirty minutes to create a chicken stock. Pass the stock through a sieve into a different pan and discard the bones. Cut the vegetables into medium sized pieces and add to the stock with a chicken stock cube. Again bring to the boil then simmer gently until the vegetables are cooked. Cut the chicken into pieces, add to the stock and continue to cook for a further five minutes. Add salt and pepper to taste and serve with chunky bread. Absolutely delicious and a perfect winter warmer!

Fundraising shop is a proven great idea A fundraising shop built inside the Royal National Lifeboat Institution (RNLI) lifeboat station at Redcar has proved to be a grand idea – one hundred times over. Since it was opened in August 2000 the RNLI shop has raised over £100,000 to fund the work of the lifeboats. Shop manager Angie Bade is delighted with the amount the shop has raised so far. Angie said: ‘We’re only a very small shop so it’s needed a lot of hard work by the volunteers who serve in it. ‘Without their commitment we wouldn’t have been nearly so successful. ‘What we do in the shop is nothing compared to what the volunteer crews do to save people at sea, but we’re proud of what we do and we feel like we’re part of the big lifeboat family. ‘Having the shop in the boathouse means that people who buy from us can actually see where their money is being used. Sometimes they even see the lifeboat being launched on a rescue and that really brings it home to them what the shop is all about.’ Former process supervisor David Twigg has been a shop volunteer since 2004. David said: ‘I used to have a boat myself and joined the RNLI supporters association ‘Shoreline’. When I retired from work I wanted to put something back into the community, and helping the RNLI was an obvious choice.’ PAGE 24

The most popular items sold in the shop are the RNLI Christmas cards. Angie Bade said: ‘People start buying them in the summer, as soon as we get them in, especially those who are sending them round the world to relatives and friends in other countries. ‘Our Christmas rush always starts early and it looks like this year will be the same. So if people want RNLI cards, they had better get down to the shop as soon as they can.’ David Twigg said: ‘The best bit about working in the shop is meeting lots of different people. So many people come into the shop and say the RNLI is the only charity they support because they can see where their money is going.’ ‘And the view of the sea from the shop window is second to none!’

Coffee break humour

One man’s hobby was fishing and he spent all his weekends near the river or lake, paying no attention to weather. One Sunday, early in the morning, he went to the river, as usual but it was so cold and wet he decided to return back to his house. He came in, went to his bedroom, undressed and laid near his wife. “What terrible weather today honey,” he said to her. “Yes. And my idiot husband went fishing!” she replied. A man bought a new fridge for his house and to get rid of his old fridge, he put it in his front garden and hung a sign on it saying: “Free to good home. You want it, you take it.” For three days the fridge sat there without even one person looking twice at it. He eventually decided that people were too untrusting of this deal. It looked too good to be true, so he changed the sign to read: “Fridge for sale £25.” The next day someone stole it. PAGE 28

A month is a long time in football Last month’s ‘Boro piece read ‘Have we turned the corner?’ and it’s obvious we’ve discovered the sad answer to that question even more quickly than most ‘Boro fans would have expected. The reality is that we have progressively worsened over the last month. We are all aware that if there is to be any interest for ‘Boro fans this season it’s going to be in the shape of a relegation battle. After a disastrous twelve months Gordon Strachan finally did the decent thing and in a moment of pure integrity tore up his contract while offering his resignation. That other outgoing managers have not done the same after underperforming in similarly dreadful fashion is a sad reflection on their integrity. It also opens the argument that all managerial contracts should include pre-designated success standards that have to be met before any compensation is paid

Steve Mclaren consistently pilloried. on the termination of a contract. It is wholly appropriate at this point to congratulate Gordon Strachan on not only doing the right thing but doing it in a manner that showed both enormous dignity and a lack of the greed that has contributed to football being in its current perilous position. Boro supporters nurse a complete misconception about where we should really be in the football hierarchy. Let’s be honest, what Steve Mclaren achieved was nothing short of breathtaking yet he was consistently pilloried.

Coffee break humour

A new director went to his first board meeting. At the end of the table was a man who, whenever a tough problem came up would say things like ‘Well, it never rains but it pours,’ or ‘It’s a long road that has no turning,’ or ‘if life gives you lemons, then make lemonade.’ ‘Exactly what does that man do’ the new director asked a colleague after the meeting. ‘He gives us our spirit of unity,’ was the reply. ‘We’d all like to strangle him!’ One day, Geordie was in Newcastle when a very impressive funeral procession passed by. ‘Crikey,’ thought Geordie, ‘that person must have been important. He turned to a nearby policeman and said ‘scuse me, but der yer naa whe it is that’s died ower yonder?’ ‘Not sure,’ says the copper, ‘but ah think it’s the bloke in the first car.’ PAGE 30
