Re: Job opps for ex PCSO advice please.

I would consider looking for a security manager role, there's a few transferable skills there. But the trust factor alone from doing this job should assist for certain jobs and potentially help during paper sifts and interviews. How about working for an estate agent? Going into people's properties, ...

Re: Its what we've all been waiting for - Standard Powers!

Can issue a ticket for wasting police time! That's interesting. Might use that next time someone asks for directions. :wink: I jest of course. :)

Re: can we go to Mars in ten years?

Bit of a risky venture, would be nice if NASA helped them out a bit with some of their expertise. Try to make sure everything goes smoothly.

Re: can we go to Mars in ten years?

I was listening to a radio call in show the other day (no idea which one) and a guest scientist was saying the same thing. Base on Mars in 20 years. The thing is, I think we have the technology and the ability to do this and it would be an incredible accomplishment, but.. Who's going to fund this? I...

Re: eyesight requirements- confusion?

Sounds strict, I don't recall having to do that test on joining up. My eyesight is pretty bad so could have been a problem.

Maybe phone them up directly and ask the question? Always possible the nurse in question lacked experience in that role.

Certainly are some huge cuts coming, can't help but wonder how they'll save all that money.

Re: Sorry but ET is just a dream says Prof Brian Cox

Good chance he's right but we'll probably never know for sure, the universe is quite a big place. Will we ever have the technology available to travel out of the Milky Way? I'm waiting to see if we'll even be able to survive a trip to Mars, that should be interesting. Think it's fair to say though, ...

Re: Powerless PCSO's want more Powers

To be fair, it very much depends on the area you are policing, some areas have a lot more activity than others. And a lot has changed in the last few years. Safer Neighbourhoods have been very effective. On a good day, getting three decent criminal intelligence reports is a piece of cake if you're i...

Re: go to Mars, but .... don't come back

Looking forward to watching this on the television when it eventually happens, not too optimistic for their odds of survival, but fingers crossed everything goes well.

I think we'll be lucky if it's that cheap.. but it's possible!
I love a good RPG myself so I'm interested in the titles you mentioned as well. Hoping they turn out to be great. :slsm:

Re: Playstation 4

The games so far are looking very interesting aren't they? I'm excited to hear more, bring on E3! Steam box is something Valve is making, I haven't really looked into it, I think it's meant to be an alternative to using Windows to play PC type games but you can also hook it up to the television. Hav...

Re: We're all in it together...

I think the majority of employed people would think they deserve more money for the job they do. But most would simply be laughed at if we demanded a pay rise, especially one of that size. I guess it's more evidence that many MPs live in a different world to most.
