first_img So far we’ve resisted the lure of the international, but just to show that Personnel Today retains a global perspective it is time to draw attention to International Association for Human Resource Information Management. The site’s aim is to allow its members to achieve strategic objectives through integration of information technology and HR management and it contains a mine of information on systems, hot topics and trends, all put together on an easy-to-navigate site. You can join the organisation from the site but large parts of it offer free access to visitors. On the Web is particularly useful, with everything from a comprehensive listing of HR associations to on-line articles. There are also links to government sites, bulletin boards and chat groups. True to the web mantra of “think global, act global” it has also set up its first international affiliate, IHRIM Australia, and plans to introduce IHRIM Europe in the next few months.

The Late Show Nods To The Dead In Mock Ad About Vermont Legal Weed Legislation [Watch]

Posted On Mar 2 2021 by

first_imgOn last night’s edition of The Late Show, the show’s host, Stephen Colbert, delved into the topic of the new Vermont’s legal marijuana bill, which was recently approved through the state’s legislature, making it the first state in which legal weed was passed in this way and not through a ballot initiative.After showing a clip of a news story about the state’s legalization bill, a message is displayed: “The following is an advertisement from the Vermont Tourism Bureau.” As the “commercial” narrator begins over images of Vermont’s various natural wonders and other stock footage you may expect to see in a tourism ad, “We have over 50 state parks, and 7,000 miles of rolling rivers at streams…and now pot is legal in Vermont! So you can come explore our exquisite natural beauty…or just stay inside on the couch laughing with your friends!”Continues the segment, “You can ski Stowe Mountain…or spend hours staring at your hands an thinking about things!” The “thinking about things” appropriately trails off in stoned fashion from there. Eventually, a clip of a 90’s Jerry Garcia fades into focus as the narrator quotes “St. Stephen”: “It’s like when Jerry Garcia sang ‘darkness shrugs and bids the day goodbye…and that’s like [makes explosion sound] mind blown, right?!…Hey, wanna listen to the Grateful Dead for a little while?”Continuing on this conspicuously non-Vermont-focused stoner tangent, the chorus from the Dead’s “Estimated Prophet” begins to play (“California…”), and the narrator begins to be distracted by thoughts of the golden shore…”So come to Vermont!…if you want,” the narrator closes half-heartedly. “I’ll be in California.”You can watch the mock Vermony tourism ad segment, “Like Pot? Visit Vermont” from The Late Show with Stephen Colbert below courtesy of the show’s YouTube channel:For more videos from The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, head to the show’sYouTube channel:[h/t – JamBase]last_img read more
