 Guardian Unlimited | Guardian daily comment | Nice work needed from the Tories
New Labour has now squandered its relative advantage in the niceness stakes, but that is no excuse for Conservatives to fall back into complacency about the reasons they have been so consistently rejected.
Eschewing the need to be nice would have won the support of colleagues who suspect that being preoccupied with niceness is a vacuous image-building exercise or a suspicious Portillista plot to dump principle, indulge interest groups and turn the party into New Labour by another name.
The socially liberal agenda which has come to exemplify the pursuit of niceness may not be to Howard's taste, but he has, sensibly, allowed for a free vote when the social partnerships bill returns to the Commons.

 Academe - Nice Work If We Can Keep It: Confessions of a Junior Professor   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-20)
As one junior professor argued in a study for the Journal of Higher Education, working in a university is not the same as working in a factory, but it has its own peculiar difficulties: "I'm not a factory worker.
Mentor, is that once junior faculty have been defined as powerless, then the solution to the problem becomes the responsibility of the institution-in the form of mentoring-or the individual-in the form of waiting.
According to Ernst Benjamin, the director of research for the AAUP, 25 percent of all professors nationwide have tenure; an additional 10 percent are on the tenure track and the remaining 65 percent are non-tenure-track employees-what Benjamin calls an "interchangeable" work force of lecturers, part-timers, and adjuncts.

Nice Work If You Can Get Them to Do It ADMINISTRATION, whatever it is, is the same as it was before poststructuralism and will still be the same when poststructuralism is the name of a mistake no one any longer makes.
I think that the poststructuralist account of how things work (or don't work) is right, but I also think that its rightness doesn't matter, is of no consequence.

When the initial programme for the National Institute for Clinical Excellence was first announced, we observed that the main emphasis was to be on drug treatments (PJ, August 14, p223): over half of the new technologies to be appraised for their clinical and cost effectiveness were pharmaceuticals of one sort or another.
This will be the committee which will advise the board of the institute on “the use within the NHS of any new or established health technology in relation to its clinical and cost effectiveness taking into account the interests of the service as a whole”.
There is already considerable pharmacist input into the NICE's work programme through a horizon scanning process that involves the National Prescribing Centre and the Drug Information Pharmacists Group.
