The Publishing NTO says this is because of newtechnology and working practices.Respondents state thatcurrent staff have the right skills but there is a shortage of high-qualityemployees entering the industry.Joanne Butcher, chiefexecutive of the Publishing NTO, said, “Although we do not have the crisisthat is hitting nursing and teaching, there are critical challenges. There is ashortage of high-quality people, even though more people are coming into theindustry.”Carol Eaton, trainingdirector of Reed Business Information, agreed: “Most of our inductionstaff have to go through heavy training to obtain the basic skills andknowledge to do the job.”She continued,”When we were recruiting for our editorial training scheme we had over 400applicants for 10 places, all with some form of journalistic training, and yetthe majority could not put an application together.”Employers nowlook for employees with the right attitude and approach to the job rather thanthe skills.”The NTO, which waslaunched last month, aims to attract high-quality graduates through betterpromotion of the sector. The industry has salesof more than £18bn and employs over 180,000 people, making it the third biggestcreative industry in the country. By Paul Nelson Previous Article Next Article

View Comments The much-buzzed about Dear Evan Hansen began Broadway previews this week and immediately broke into our top five shows by capacity list. Bringing in a solid $804,291 over seven performances, we’re expecting the early Tony frontrunner to go from strength to strength in the coming weeks. Meanwhile, the perennial favorites, Hamilton, The Lion King, Wicked, Aladdin and The Book of Mormon all made the top five by gross. On the other end of the spectrum, In Transit, also in previews, took home the least of any show on Broadway with $238,222, although it is in the smallest house. The a cappella tuner will be looking to word of mouth and good reviews to build its audience moving forward.Here’s a look at who was on top—and who was not—for the week ending November 20:FRONTRUNNERS (By Gross)1.

Norway’s Statoil has received consent from the Petroleum Safety Authority (PSA) for work on two wells on the Troll field offshore Norway using two Songa Offshore-owned Cat D drilling rigs.The PSA issued two consents to Statoil on Thursday, one for work on the 31/2-X-11 CH well and the other for the 31/2-Y-24 CYH XT well.The first consent applies to the use of Songa Endurance for drilling, completion, workover, intervention and plugging (P&A) of 31/2-X-11 CH.According to the PSA, the drilling operations are scheduled to begin in March and are expected to last 43 days.The second consent is for the use of the Songa Equinox for drilling, completion, workover, intervention and plugging (P&A) of 31/2-Y-24 CYH XT.The PSA said that the drilling operations were scheduled to begin in April and were expected to last 80 days.Water depth at both sites is 332 meters.Both the Songa Endurance and the Songa Equinox are Cat D semi-submersible drilling rigs operated by Songa Offshore. The rigs received their Acknowledgement of Compliance (AoC) from the PSA in late 2015. The Cat D mid-water semi-submersible rig concept was designed for efficient year around drilling, completion, testing and intervention operations in a harsh environment.The rig duo is currently on an eight-year deal with Statoil on the Troll field with both rigs beginning their contracts in December 2015.As for the field, the Troll field is around 65 kilometers west of Kollsnes in Hordaland county. It has been developed using three integrated process and accommodation platforms, Troll A, B, and C, and subsea well templates tied back to the B and C platforms.The Troll field contains around 40 percent of the total gas reserves on the Norwegian Continental Shelf but is also among the largest oil fields on the shelf.Offshore Energy Today Staff
Anything can happen at Daytona International Speedway.The 2.5-mile tri-oval produces serious speed and constant danger. Daytona is much more narrow than Talladega and can produce some big crashes at key moments. The race earlier this year featured a huge wreck which was a huge part of the finish as it took out nearly half the field.Last year’s second race at Daytona saw the same problem as a good portion of the drivers were taken out by a late wreck.So while it’s easy to point to drivers who have chances to win this week (Joey Logano, Kyle Busch, Denny Hamlin), there’s a reason the odds aren’t crazy low for drivers down the line to get a win. The lowest odds of any named driver is 100/1 for Ty Dillon.This race is about surviving and getting to the final laps unscathed, and starting up front and getting away from danger will be huge. Ten of the last 14 winners of this race have started in the top 11, so qualifying will be key.And we do think one of Logano, Busch or Hamlin could easily come away with the win. But this year, when in doubt, picking Kyle Busch has been the best policy so we’ll go with him to win this week, but we fully admit, absolutely anything could happen.The Coke Zero Sugar 400 starts at 7:30 p.m. ET on Saturday.What are the betting odds for Daytona?Joey Logano 8/1Brad Keselowski 8/1Denny Hamlin 10/1Kyle Busch 10/1Chase Elliott 10/1Kevin Harvick 10/1Clint Bowyer 14/1Ryan Blaney 14/1Kurt Busch 14/1Aric Almirola 16/1Ricky Stenhouse Jr. 18/1Martin Truex Jr. 18/1Alex Bowman 18/1Kyle Larson 25/1Paul Menard 25/1Jimmie Johnson 25/1Daniel Suarez 30/1William Byron 30/1Erik Jones 30/1Matt DiBenedetto 40/1Austin Dillon 40/1Ryan Newman 40/1Daniel Hemric 50/1Ryan Preece 80/1Darrell “Bubba” Wallace Jr. 80/1Chris Buescher 80/1David Ragan 80/1Michael McDowell 80/1Ty Dillon 100/1Field (all others) 40/1Which NASCAR drivers should you watch at the Coke Zero Sugar 400?Alex Bowman is coming off the first win of his career and he should be happy with the race he follows it up with. He has had good finishes in each of his last three runs at Daytona and has qualified well there, finishing no lower than second in qualifying in those events. He has a great chance to start out front and earn a good finish. When Ryan Blaney stays out of trouble at Daytona, he has a shot to win. The problem is he has trouble staying out of trouble. He has wrecked in three of his last five races at the 2.5-mile track and finished poorly because of it. However, he has led laps in all but one of those races and when he hasn’t wrecked he has finished second and seventh. If he stays out of danger he can win.Ricky Stenhouse Jr . has a victory at Daytona and isn’t scared to mix it up. He caused a huge wreck in the second race last season and will fight to the last moment to win these races. He has hung around all year long but hasn’t quite been able to get a win or even a great finish. This could be his week to do it.One sleeper for the Coke Zero Sugar 400Matt DiBenedetto was supremely confident in the spring his team would have a good shot to win at Daytona. They ultimately didn’t but he led 49 laps and was inside the top 10 for a good portion of the race. He also got caught up in a wreck at the end and ultimately finished poorly,. But with a seventh-place finish to end 2018, he is a very good sleeper pick if you’ve got serious guts.
