The figure represents a drop from 2008 when 10 per cent of bonuses were guaranteed and 2007 when eight per cent were of the same nature.A guaranteed bonus promises a fixed incentive payment despite an individual’s performance or the profitability of the company.The survey indicates that the investment banking industry has almost entirely stopped handing out the controversial bonus. last_img read more

first_img Maimon steps down from Aspire board, remains CEO AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter Tags: Online Gambling 26th June 2020 | By Daniel O’Boyle Tsachi Maimon, chief executive of solutions provider Aspire, has resigned from his position on the company’s board of directors in order to focus on his chief executive duties.Chairman of the board Carl Klingberg said Maimon suggested the idea to the rest of the board.“Tsachi presented this idea to the Board in order to free up more of his time,” Klingberg said.“Since Aspire Global is in an exciting growth phase with many interesting strategic initiatives on its agenda this is a wise step in order to enable him to dedicate more of his time to the execution of the strategy.”Aspire said the move would allow Maimon to focus on Aspire’s growth strategy of targeting tier 1 and tier 2 operators, new markets such as the United States and possible mergers and acquisitions.Maimon’s resignation will come into effect once it is officially registered by the relevant securities authorities.Last month, Aspire announced a 1.5% year-on-year rise in revenue in the first quarter of 2020, primarily because of an increase in revenue growth in the UK, Irish and wider European markets. Net profit, however, halved to €2.5m, mainly due to costs related to the acquisition of Pariplay.

Tom Croft on the comeback trail after neck injury

June 18, 2021 0 Comments

first_imgTuesday Oct 2, 2012 Tom Croft on the comeback trail after neck injury England flanker Tom Croft will not be considered for selection for England’s autumn internationals despite being close to a return from injury. Croft has been out since April with a neck injury suffered playing for Leicester Tigers.In the past few weeks his rehabilitation has stepped up a level, but he is still awaiting a return to full training. That could come before November – when England start their four-match autumn series against Fiji – but Red Rose head coach Stuart Lancaster has ruled Croft out of contention.And Croft himself admits an England return isn’t in his thoughts, with his priority a return to club duty. “I’m on track of where I’d hope to be at this time,” said the 26-year-old.“We are still a little way off but it is just part of being a rugby player. It is frustrating at the moment watching the boys on the pitch, gearing towards a game at the end of each week and I’m stuck at the gym.“It would be nice to get back fit and actually have something to train for at the end of the week. At the moment I am basically avoiding contact as much as possible.“I missed the summer tour and that was a very frustrating time in my career but there are silver linings you can take. It could be a lot worse and it gives me the chance to get my body back in some sort of decent nick and hit the ground running when I come back.– Paul SmithSSE Rugby Energy  is dedicated in helping clubs across England save money on their energy bills.

Midweek Madness – Two casual tryscorers shown up at World Club 7’s

June 18, 2021 0 Comments

first_imgTuesday Aug 12, 2014 Midweek Madness – Two casual tryscorers shown up at World Club 7’s There were two really unfortunate, yet highly amusing incidents at the Limerick World Club 7’s at Thomond Park on the weekend. Both videos feature players about to score runaway tries, but result in red faced errors instead. Fiji’s Daveta ended up winning the inaugural event, beating Munster and Auckland on their way to a 36-12 victory over the Vancouver Bears in the final.This event was a bit of a warmup for the main tournament at Twickenham, this coming weekend.Participation is by invitation only and some of the sides included are: Munster (Ireland), Saracens (England), New York (USA), San Francisco (USA), Auckland (New Zealand), Vodacom Blue Bulls (South Africa), DHL Western Province (South Africa), Moscow Saracens (Russia), Daveta (Fiji), Stade Francais (France) and the Vancouver Bears (Canada).In the main clip below we see amateur footage of a Fijian absoutely skinning a Munster player, but as he gets close to the tryline he decides to stroll in, only to be caught from behind..The second video, seen here on page two, features a Waratahs flyer, quite possibly Taqele Naiyaravoro, as he strides away for what should be an excellent break out try. He too fails to score, instead dropping the ball as he casually attempts to dot it down.View the second blooper on page twoCredit to Paudie McCarthy and Paul Collins for the videosADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error See it to Believe it Related Articles 25 WEEKS AGO WATCH: Experts explain what actually happens… 26 WEEKS AGO WATCH: Leigh Halfpenny makes yet another… 26 WEEKS AGO Parisse alley-oop magic sets up brilliant… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

Amazon workers walk out after grievances pile up

June 15, 2021 0 Comments

first_imgWorkers at the Amazon fulfillment center in Shakopee, Minn., a suburb of Minneapolis, escalated their campaign for workers’ rights on March 8 by carrying out a three-hour work stoppage. The strike occurred during the night shift, when a group of about 30 workers, mostly Somali immigrants, walked off the job to protest the mega-corporation’s management.A Facebook post went viral as the workers held up a handwritten sign reading: “We are humans, not robots” and listed their complaints on a legal pad. Previously, WW reported that workers’ frustrations were intensified by a panoply of grievances with management: from lacking language translation services, to inhumane intensity of work, to racist selection of workers for promotion, to pitiful health benefits, to hiring schemes that exploit temp workers, to the need for more bathroom visits and prayer breaks. Amazon workers are up against a corporation unwilling to part with profits. The Shakopee workers organized and held a rally last December — believed to be the first in the U.S. against Amazon —  to show unity and express their discontent over not having a voice in how work is handled.Workers at a fulfillment center in Poland, describing themselves as “workers from Amazon from Germany, Spain, Poland, France, and supporters from Italy,” posted a video on the internet declaring “Solidarity!” with the immigrant and non-immigrant workers in Shakopee. Amazon around the worldAmazon Inc. is infamous worldwide. Its CEO, Jeff Bezos, is currently the richest person in the world, with an estimated worth of $138 billion. The profits of Amazon surged, nearly doubling, between 2017 and 2018. Yet the corporation paid no federal income taxes. Bezos also owns The Washington Post. Media watchdog organizations point out biases in its reporting. Fairness and Accuracy in Reporting asserts that the acquisition “instantly made him the most powerful media figure in the nation’s capital — a handy position to be in when your company is seeking multi-billion-dollar government contracts.”Concurrently, Amazon has offered its cloud computing services to the U.S. government’s surveillance and repression regime. To the tune of $600 billion, the National Security Agency relies on Amazon’s cloud network to collect metadata and even intimate conversations of U.S. residents, creating a spy apparatus unparalleled in history.Against such a titanic force, it could appear that Amazon has an unassailable advantage. However, these brave workers standing up for their rights and displaying collective determination will inspire the movements of tomorrow. Amazon’s burgeoning labor vanguard serves as an example to workers around the world.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Call for truth about cartoonist’s disappearance three years ago

Government officials made a series of contradictory statements about his disappearance while the police made few efforts to find him alive. A former attorney-general, Mohan Peiris told the United Nations Committee Against Torture in Geneva on 9 November 2011 that Ekneligoda was alive and in hiding somewhere abroad but he retracted when questioned by a Colombo court last year.Ekneligoda was a well-known cartoonist whose work advocated respect for democracy and minority rights. His disappearance came at a time of considerable political tension just three days before President Rajapakse’s reelection on 27 January 2010.His wife, Sandya Ekneligoda, reported his disappearance to several police stations and the National Commission on Human Rights. She went on to seek international support, turning to UN secretary-general Ban Ki-moon and the UN representative in Colombo. In March 2012, she went to Geneva to testify to the UN Human Rights Council.Journalists, especially those who try to shed light on the human rights violations that took place during the final months of the Tamil rebellion, have been subject to an unprecedented campaign of threats and intimidation since 2009.The campaign stepped up in March 2012 in the run-up to a UN Human Rights Council session that examined the situation in Sri Lanka. The council adopted a resolution calling on Sri Lanka to prosecute those suspected of human rights violations during the war.The anniversary of Ekneligoda’s disappearance comes just two weeks after the fourth anniversary of the death of Lasantha Wickrematunga, the editor of the opposition Sunday Leader newspaper, who was gunned down in Colombo on 8 January 2009. His murder remains unpunished.A country where journalists are permanently exposed to violence and impunity although its civil war officially ended in 2009, Sri Lanka is ranked 163rd out of 179 countries in the 2011-2012 press freedom index and is classified as country “under surveillance” in the Reporters Without Borders Internet survey.Reporters Without Borders has interviewed Sri Lankan journalist Frederica Jansz, a former Sunday Leader editor who recently left the country after receiving repeated death threats: January 24, 2013 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Call for truth about cartoonist’s disappearance three years ago Sri LankaAsia – Pacific Sri Lanka: Journalist manhandled by notorious police inspector currently on trial Organisation News News Sri Lanka: tamil reporter held on absurd terrorism charge News July 15, 2020 Find out more Sri LankaAsia – Pacific last_img read more

Justice Mohammad Nawaz said “The Consideration of application to be enlarged on bail in accordance with law is a right that can be encapsulated in the Right to Life under Article 21 of the Constitution of India.” Accused Iliyaz Khan was arrested on April 4, during the ongoing lockdown period, under sections offences punishable under Sections 341, 353, 504 r/w Section 34 of IPC. He has been in custody for over a month and is lodged in the prison. After filing for bail before the district court he submitted that necessary report to the Principal District and Sessions Court, Bengaluru Rural District on 07.04.2020 as well as on 13.04.2020 to ensure that the petition be taken up on priority. However, the district judge has refused to order that the bail petition be taken up for consideration stating that it is not a case of ‘extreme urgency’. Advocate Sunil S. Rao, appearing for the accused in the high court argued that petitioner has been in custody for about a month the offence under Section 341 of I.P.C. is punishable for imprisonment for one month. There could not be deferment of consideration of bail petition for any reason and appropriate arrangements ought to be made to take up the bail petition. The court said “Once bail petition has been filed, as petition involves the question of life in all its expanseful connotations and liberty of the petitioner, it is appropriate to take up the petition and consider it in accordance with law in an expeditious manner. Without commenting as regards to the merits of the matter, it cannot be stated that though the petitioner seeks for enlarging him on bail, petitioner is seeking to move a matter which does not involve any extreme urgency and hence, the consideration of application for bail could be deferred. Such a pedantic approach is not acceptable when considering the application filed seeking to be enlarged on bail.” The court accordingly directed the concerned Court to take up the petition seeking enlargement of bail and to dispose of the said petition within a period of seven days.Click Here To Download Order[Read Order] Next Storylast_img read more
