India Climbs Up to 51st Spot in World Talent Rankings

first_imgIndia has climbed up three spots in the World Talent Rankings 2017, a new study conducted by the IMD World Competitiveness Center revealed on Nov. 21. India now figures at the 51st place when it comes to attracting, developing and retaining talent.The study shows the overall ranking of 63 economies and analyses methods used by them to attract and retain talent that businesses need to thrive. This is done on basis of three categories: investment and development, appeal and readiness. These categories include education, apprenticeships, workplace training, language skills, cost of living, quality of life, remuneration and tax rates, according to the report.The study was conducted using a survey of thousands of executives from the different countries, and data spanning over two decades from the IMD World Competitiveness Center, a business education school based in Lausanne, Switzerland. Two new economies — Cyprus and Saudi Arabia — were included in the survey this year.Among the BRICS (Brazil, Russia, Indian, China and South Africa) countries, China leads at 40th rank, closely followed by Russia (43rd), South Africa (48th), India (51st) and Brazil (52nd). South Africa has fared better than India among the BRICs countries due to many indices such as its expenditure in education, cost of education, cost-of-living index, labor force growth and personal income tax rate, the survey said.European economies continued to lead, largely due to their education systems. While Switzerland, Denmark and Belgium were the most competitive economies in 2017, Austria, Finland, the Netherlands, Norway, Germany, Sweden and Luxembourg occupied the top 10 positions.Germany is a key player in maintaining Europe’s talent competitiveness, according to the study. The country is one of the largest exporters of talent and the also attracts talent from across the world. “Despite criticism from some quarters surrounding immigration, Germany’s policies sustain its access to the international talent pool,” Arturo Bris, the Director of the IMD World Competitiveness Center, said in a statement. “However, with the European crisis still taking its toll on the German economy, the country has slightly decreased its total expenditure on public education.”Bris added that despite high quality of life, good educational system, and great investment in the public sector, Nordic countries fail to appeal to foreign talent, mainly due to their high cost of living.The United States was ranked 16th when it came to appealing foreign talent. This was due to the high quality of life, good career opportunities and high levels of remuneration offered by America. The survey revealed that the United States, however, needs to invest more in public education and nurturing local talent.Top 10 Countries in World Talent Rankings 2017: Switzerland Denmark Belgium Austria Finland Netherlands Norway Germany Sweden Luxembourg  Related ItemsIMDTalent Rankinglast_img read more

Harbhajan promises to strike back

first_imgIndia are reeling at 136 for nine after the first day of the opening Test, but spinner Harbhajan Singh said the match is still not over and they had enough ammunition to strike back.The senior off-spinner said toss played a crucial role in the opening Test, which was delayed by more than four hours because of overnight and early rain at the Super-Sport Park.”It was a bad day for us. Losing the toss was the most crucial blow as the wicket was clearly damp. The ball was doing quite a bit. It was swinging and cutting too,” Harbhajan said after the match.”But I would like to say that the match is not over. We need to collect as many runs as possible and then try and bowl well to restrict them in the first innings. We have very good and experienced batting line up.They will score good amount of runs in the second innings. I only hope that this wicket will keep on assisting the bowlers,” he added.The 30-year-old tweaker also heaped praise on South African bowlers for exploiting the seaming conditions well.Meanwhile, South African pacer Morne Morkel said his and Dale Steyn’s exploits with the new bowl on the first day of the opening Test would have repercussions on the rest of the three match series and also send a message to the Indian camp.”We caused huge damage for the rest of the series. We dealt the first blow, the first punch after winning the toss. It sends a good message that we are here and we’re not going to step back,” said Morkel.advertisement”We have been bowling together for some time and so there was a bit of pressure on us to deliver. The main thing was not to get caught in there and get carried away as the game can change very quickly,” he said.last_img read more

Valencia keen on signing Ayoze Perez

first_imgValencia are interested in making a move for Newcastle United forward Ayoze Perez.According to sources close to the club, the Spaniard would be keen on a return to his native country and the Liga side are close to putting together an offer.Perez intends to leave the Premier League club this summer, especially following the news that manager Rafael Benitez will be exiting once his contract expires at the end of June.

One barrier to any potential move would be the valuation set by Newcastle, with the quoted price of €25 million (£22m/$29m) too high for the Spanish outfit as things stand.Valencia finished fourth in La Liga last season and qualified for the Champions League as a result, which adds even more appeal to the move for Perez, who has been at Newcastle since 2014.The 25-year-old was the club’s top scorer across all competitions last season, finding the net 13 times in 41 appearances, with 10 of his 12 league goals coming in the second half of the season.He has scored 48 goals in 195 appearances for Newcastle since joining the club from Tenerife, with 33 of those coming in the Premier League.The revelation that Benitez would be leaving the north east came on Monday, as Newcastle announced that he would be departing after the two parties failed to agree terms regarding a contract extension.A statement on the club’s official website read: “We have worked hard to extend Rafa’s contract over a significant period of time.”However, it has not been – and will not be – possible to reach an agreement with Rafa and his representatives.”The news came as a blow to Magpies supporters, who hold the former Liverpool manager in high regard after he led them back to the Premier League at the first attempt before consolidating their position in the top flight in the following two seasons.The Champions League-winning boss has been linked with a money-spinning move to Chinese Super League side Dalian Yifang, who reportedly offered Benitez a contract worth £12 million ($15m) per year.last_img read more

Boxes of Smiles Initiative Lights up the Season for Childrens Emergency Hostel

first_imgFacebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp#Bahamas, January 15, 2018 – Nassau – Kayley Simon and her classmates packed a whole lot of love into a single shoe box and what started out as an idea to give gifts to others less fortunate instead of exchanging with classmates turned into a class project that taught the true meaning of the season.   Kayley, 11, is a sixth grade student at Windsor Preparatory School in western New Providence.   Shortly before the holidays, Kayley wrote to her teacher, Mrs. Courtnee Romer, sharing her excitement about the holidays, telling her she could “hardly wait to see the bright lights and the awesome Christmas trees all beautifully decorated.”She confessed she was especially excited about opening her presents and then she stole her teacher’s heart with these words: “As we at Windsor prepare to have our Christmas celebrations, I can’t help but think of all those children who are less fortunate than I.   That’s why this year, I would like to share an idea for a Christmas initiative called ‘A Box of Smiles.’   This year, I would like to invite my class to help me give to the children at The Children’s Emergency Hostel.   It would be nice to help put a smile on their faces.   Instead of exchanging gifts, we can use the money ($25-$30) to buy small items that can fit into a box, the size of a shoe box.   Some of the items can be coloring books, boxes of crayons, card games, pencils, pens, erasers, small toys etc.   Each student will decorate and fill their own box personalized for one child at the Hostel.”She also asked if each student in the class could make a Christmas card with a note to the recipient and include it in the box.   She offered to decorate a drop box and with the teacher’s permission, she would start the collection process.“All of us have so much to be thankful for and I believe that it would be so beautiful to make this Christmas a very special one for these children,” Kayley wrote and her teacher’s approval was instant.Over 20 shoe boxes from just about all of her classmates came pouring in along with cards and gifts and on December 18, one week before Kayley would be opening her own presents in a family home with a mother, father and two siblings.   Kayley and her mom delivered the gifts to children who would not be spending that special day of the year like the Simons but would know that someone – many someones – remembered them and cared.   They would know that the season meant love.Press Release: DPA News Related Items:last_img read more

75 have not received employerprovided financial education

first_imgThree-quarters (75%) of employee respondents have not received financial education from their employer to help them understand what savings choices exist and what is best for them, according to research by Close Brothers and the Pension and Lifetime Savings Association (PLSA).Its The lifetime savings challenge report 2017, which surveyed 1,000 employers with 200 or more employees and 2,009 employees from organisations with 200 or more employees, also found that 48% of employer respondents currently offer some form of financial education, and 20% plan to introduce it in the next 12 months.The research also found:65% of employer respondents think the responsibility for improving employees’ financial wellbeing lies jointly with them and their employees.40% of employee respondents are confident in their ability to choose the right financial product to help them achieve their savings ambitions.42% of employee respondents who are eligible to save into a lifetime individual savings account (Lisa) do not do so because they feel they do not know enough about the product.53% of employee respondents aged between 18 and 34 are either saving for retirement or buying a house as their main savings priorities.35% of employee respondents who have received financial education feel that it has been useful in guiding their immediate, medium and long-term saving decisions.33% of employee respondents are saving less than £50 a month, and 20% of these respondents are not saving anything.Jeanette Makings (pictured), head of financial education at Close Brothers said: “There is a looming savings crisis. Not only are people failing to save enough, but many simply don’t understand the different savings choices available or how to evaluate which ones are best for them. Worse than that, the industry is not geared up to help them. Product providers can explain their own products, and comparison websites may be helpful to compare products of the same type, but there are very few providers able to help individuals look across the savings landscape in its entirety and choose what’s best for them.“Employers have a key role to play in solving this lifetime savings challenge, but despite them seeing it as their responsibility to enhance the financial education of their workforce, far too few are adequately addressing the issue amongst their employees.  If we want employers to be adding real value, their efforts need to reflect the challenges that individual employees are facing at each stage of life.“A huge part of the challenge therefore, is to encourage the provision of good financial education in the workplace that looks at savings as a whole and the different options available. Employers are hugely trusted and perfectly placed to close this knowledge gap. By working closely with them to develop impactful education, we can help employees secure a solid financial future for both themselves and their families.” Nigel Peaple, deputy director of defined contribution (DC), lifetime savings and research at the PLSA added: “Regular income from full-time employment is the building block for many people’s financial stability so it makes sense that they would also look to their employers for support with financial education, pensions and lifetime saving. [This] report highlights not only the low levels of saving amongst the workforce but also their interest and desire to do more.“It also raises important questions about the role employers can play in helping employees to be financially prepared for retirement. It is encouraging to see that almost two thirds of employers believe that it is their responsibility to help employees to make the most of the benefits packages they offer. We hope that [organisations] will feel able to help their employees reach their savings aspirations.”last_img read more

Amazon Japan reportedly stops selling Huawei devices

first_imgAmazon Japan apparently isn’t directly selling Huawei’s products anymore. Kazuhiro Nogi / AFP / Getty Images The Amazon Japan store became the latest entity to ice out Huawei by removing all its products from direct sale, a Nikkei report said Friday.Despite the end of direct sales, Amazon Japan customers can still buy Huawei phones, tablets and PCs through third-party sellers in the online marketplace, Nikkei noted.The Chinese company’s devices were listed as out of stock for direct sale in the wake of the US blacklisting Huawei last week. President Donald Trump signed an executive order effectively banning the company from doing business with US companies or governments based on national security concerns over Huawei’s close ties with the Chinese government.In the US, Microsoft also reportedly removed Huawei MateBook laptops from its online store.Neither Amazon nor Huawei immediately responded to requests for comment.First published at 5:53 a.m. PT.Update, 6:23 a.m.: Adds more detail. $60 at Best Buy Lenovo 130-15AST 15.6-inch laptop: $210 (save $90) Though not technically a Labor Day sale, it’s happening during Labor Day sale season — and it’s too good not to share.

Wait — no, I’m not. As much as I respect the original intent of the holiday (which became official back in 1894), to most of us, it’s just a bonus day off — one that’s blissfully tacked onto a weekend. So, yeah, stores; go ahead, run your sales. I’m listening. Perhaps unsurprisingly, Labor Day doesn’t bring out bargains to compete with the likes of Black Friday (which will be here before you know it), but there are definitely some sales worth your time.For example:We’ve rounded up the best Labor Day mattress deals.We’ve also gathered the best Labor Day laptop deals at Best Buy.The 2019 Vizio P Series Quantum is back under $999.Be sure to check out Amazon’s roughly three dozen Labor Day deals on TVs and audio.

However, I strongly recommend paying an extra $50 to upgrade that display to FHD (1,920×1,080), because you’re not likely to be happy with the native 1,366×768 resolution. What’s cooler: A snapshot of a firework exploding in front of you, or full 360-degree video of all the fireworks and all the reactions to seeing them? Oooh, ahhh, indeed.

You won’t find this charmer in any history books, despite her ancient origins.Less a murdering enchantress, more a virtual doctor (via BBC)THE SIRENFirst appearance: “The Curse of the Black Spot” (2011)—season 6, episode 3Home planet: N/ADoctor: EleventhCompanion: Amy Pond, Rory WilliamsWhen they materialize on a 17th century pirate ship, the Doctor, Amy, and Rory expect a swashbuckling good time.But the good ship Fancy, stranded for eight days at the mercy of a mysterious enemy, is anything but a good time.The ship’s crew, led by Hugh Bonneville’s Captain Henry Avery, has been terrorized by a supernatural seductress, who marks the palm of the wounded and sick with a black spot. As told by Greek mythology, her song sends victims into a trance, luring them to apparent death.Who has The Siren come to take this time? (via BBC)Only, the “green singing shark in an evening gown” (played with eerie calm by Lily Cole) isn’t the dangerous creature they assume. The Doctor, believing the fallen men are not dead, convinces Avery and Amy to attract the Siren by drawing their own blood.His suspicions are confirmed when the glowing demon’s touch transports them to an alien spaceship, trapped in a temporal rift.Its crew long dead from exposure to a human virus, the Siren—less a murdering enchantress, more a virtual doctor—has been caring for the injured humans. The black spots are tissue samples taken for reference.All’s well that ends well, right?Eleventh Doctor (Matt Smith) steers clear of The Siren (Lily Cole) (via BBC)“The Curse of the Black Spot” has long been considered something of a black spot itself on Doctor Who‘s record. The throwaway episode did little to advance the plot (save for a brief appearance by Madame Kovarian and an unclear TARDIS pregnancy scan on Amy). And while it’s always fun to see Karen Gillan dress as a pirate and save the day, this chapter is of little import in the grand scheme of things.Even the Siren—one of the few comparatively high points of the hour—lacks, as IGN’s Matt Risley put it, the qualities to become “a credible and terrifying Who villain.”Her infamous black spot, however, has an interesting history: The term is a literary device invented by Robert Louis Stevenson for his novel “Treasure Island,” in which pirates are presented with a “black spot” to officially pronounced a verdict of guilt or judgement.The 19th century story utilizes a circular piece of paper—one side blackened, the other side bearing a message—placed into the hand of the accused. Its origin, some speculate, is in the historical tradition of Caribbean pirates showing an Ace of Spades to a person condemned as a traitor or informer.Stream all of Doctor Who now for free with your Amazon Prime membership.Let us know what you like about Geek by taking our survey.last_img read more

The 5 Takeaways from the Coyotes introduction of

first_img The 5: Takeaways from the Coyotes’ introduction of Alex Meruelo Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retires Top Stories TEMPE, Ariz. — Bruce Arians knows something about standards. He coached for eight seasons in Pittsburgh, where they now repeat the mantra, “the standard is the standard” for a franchise that has won six Super Bowl titles — more than any other NFL franchise — including two (2009) while Arians was a Steelers assistant.Despite Pittsburgh’s hardware, however, the current standard setter in the NFL is the team that Arians’ Cardinals will face in Week 1 of the regular season on Sunday night at University of Phoenix Stadium: the New England Patriots. Belichick is also known for his simple ‘Do Your Job!’ mantra and his willingness to part with stars (aside from Brady) that will demand big money on the open market, or stars that don’t fit his culture. When asked this week about the Patriots’ keys to sustained success, Belichick was quick to defer credit.“Mainly, we’ve got a lot of great players here. That’s always the most important thing,” he said. “I’ve been very fortunate to have a lot of great players and I’ve had a lot of great coaches here — coaches that have gone on to other opportunities and coaches that are here that have been considered for other opportunities as well.”Among the members of the Belichick coaching tree are Houston Texans coach Bill O’Brien, Texans defensive coordinator Romeo Crennel, who has been a head coach in Cleveland (2005-08) and Kansas City (2011-12), Patriots offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels, who was Denver’s head coach from 2009-10, and Charlie Weis, who had a less-than stellar five-year coaching run at Notre Dame.New England’s organizational success is something the Cardinals would like to emulate as they chase their third straight postseason berth and first Super Bowl title. With an owner that is committed to spending and winning in Michael Bidwill, an aggressive and studious GM in Steve Keim, and a coach who has enjoyed success at every stop, the Cardinals hope they are on their way — even if they have miles to travel before they warrant a mention with the likes of New England. “They’ve done it the best for the longest,” Arians said Friday. “I think there are three or four organizations that have done a great job in the last decade, but they obviously lead the pack.”It’s impossible to argue that point. New England is tied with Green Bay for the longest playoff streak at seven straight seasons, the Patriots have made the playoffs in 12 of the last 13 seasons, they have won 12 of the last 13 AFC East titles and they have played in six of the last 15 Super Bowls, winning four of them.New England hasn’t had a losing season since the first year of the millennium (they went 5-11 in 2000) and they have posted at least 10 wins in 13 straight seasons.“They have a philosophy and a plan that they follow,” Arians said.The plan starts with coach Bill Belichick and quarterback Tom Brady, an inexorably linked pair who have been together since 2000, with Brady the starter since 2001. In that time, Brady, who will miss Sunday’s game as part of a four-game suspension for the Deflategate scandal, has completed 4,953 of 7,792 passes for 58,028 yards, 428 touchdowns and just 150 interceptions, while being named to 11 Pro Bowls and winning two league MVP awards.

The 70th Emmy Awards will be held on Monday, Sept. 17. (Guy D’Alema/FX via AP) Will a ‘Saturday Night Live’ makeover rescue the Emmys?center_img LOS ANGELES, Calif. – Excited about Monday’s 70th Emmy Awards? Probably not. That’s an educated guess based on shrinking interest in entertainment’s back-slapping ceremonies generally and television’s biggest night in particular.Last year’s Emmys drew 11.4 million viewers, a smidge above 2016’s worst-ever 11.3 million. The 2018 Oscars dipped to an all-time low with 26.5 million viewers — still more than double that of its small-screen sibling.But imagine this: An expert in producing live TV jumps in to invigorate the stale, decades-old Emmy format by orchestrating more laughs, more surprises and fewer trophy presentations capped by giddy yet dull speeches.(Sorry, that last one isn’t going to happen, explanation below.)The magic could be delivered by “Saturday Night Live” impresario Lorne Michaels, who’s producing his first Emmy Awards since the late 80s, back when the top nominees included “The Golden Girls” and “thirtysomething.”The contenders for the Emmys airing at 8 p.m. EDT Monday on NBC are unique and distinctly contemporary, “Atlanta” and “The Handmaid’s Tale” among them, but can the tradition-bound ceremony possibly be their equal?Ken Davenport, a Tony-Award winning Broadway producer (“Kinky Boots,” ”Once on This Island”), says Michaels’ live-TV resume could give the ceremony hosted by “SNL” faux news anchors Michael Che and Colin Jost what it needs.“Because of Lorne and the hosts, I think it will have a feeling that something exciting could happen at any moment,” Davenport said. “Everyone gets such a kick out of watching ‘Saturday Night Live’ when a host starts to laugh. … It’s just a little bit higher stakes.”Michaels’ choice of his “Weekend Update” stars is part of the “SNL” stamp he’s giving the night. Kate McKinnon, Tina Fey and Alec Baldwin are among the current and former cast members and guest stars serving as presenters.The dive into the “SNL” talent pool is reminiscent of Michaels’ approach to the 1988 Emmys, which opened with Nora Dunn and Jan Hooks performing as “SNL” characters the Sweeney sisters. The sketch show’s Al Franken and Robert Smigel were among the ceremony’s writers.Nominee Tracey Ullman declared them the “hippest” Emmys ever, while a Variety review called the ceremony a “vast improvement” over the 1987 ceremony and briskly efficient but “devoid of humour or emotional wallop.”Michaels, who declined to be interviewed for this story, has certainly upped his game and expanded his creative empire since then, with credits including “30 Rock,” ”Portlandia” and Jimmy Fallon’s “Tonight Show.”Crown jewel “SNL,” entering its 44th season this fall, received 21 Emmy nods this year and holds the record for most-nominated show ever with 252. Its satirical broadsides at President Donald Trump and his allies have delivered a ratings boost and renewed cultural relevance.It’s already a winner this year, claiming seven trophies at last weekend’s creative arts ceremony, including one for “SNL” guest host Tiffany Haddish. That ties it with the formidable “Game of Thrones” in the run-up to Monday’s main event.“Lorne Michaels has on speed-dial enough people to make it a really interesting broadcast,” said Robert Thompson, a Syracuse University professor and director of its Bleier Center for Television & Popular Culture. “If anybody is positioned to do it, he is. He’s from live television and knows how to play to a live audience.”But it’s not just TV viewers who matter. Any awards show is tasked with spotlighting the wider industry it represents.In 2009, the TV academy proposed showing edited acceptances of eight awards given out before the main event to make room for more entertainment, a la the Tony and Grammys, with then-ceremony host Neil Patrick Harris gamely defended the approach as providing “the best show we can to the audience.”But those in the affected — and, let’s face it, less-glamorous categories, including writers and directors — pushed back hard. The idea was ditched, and viewers will sit (or not) through 26 awards Monday.Trying another tack that year to stem an already worrisome ratings slide, the number of nominations slots was increased for top categories including comedy and drama. The hope was to squeeze in more popular fare, but it’s still the case that a critically acclaimed niche show such as “Mr. Robot” will be nominated than, say, long-time hit “NCIS.”(Earlier in 2009, a ratings-conscious movie academy doubled the possible number of best picture nominees to 10 in hopes of making room for another blockbuster like “Titanic,” which delivered equivalent Oscar viewership. A plan to add a popular film category in 2019 was shelved when critics denounced it as pandering.)Tom O’Neil, editor of Gold Derby and author of “The Emmys” and an Emmy voter as well, argues for adding nominees to all categories to recognize the so-called “peak TV” flood of streaming, cable and broadcast programs.“Why not expand each race to 10 or 12 nominees in order to be more inclusive and to please Emmycast viewers who tune in to see their favourites?” O’Neil said. “The TV academy is not adapting fast enough to the modern media scene.”Broadway producer Davenport contends that TV industry members who support an awards-bloated ceremony are missing the point.“We can go on and on about how awards shows are for recognizing excellence, and they are, but they are an industry’s best chance at marketing itself that it will have all year,” he said. The Oscars typically feature a splashy opening and are punctuated by performances of the nominated songs, and the Emmys should follow suit by drawing on TV’s crowd-pleasing strengths.“There’s more performance on television than there ever has been, with ‘American Idol’ and ‘The Voice’ and ‘America’s Got Talent’” among others, he said. “There’s got to be some way to showcase that talent.”Syracuse’s Thompson suggests more drastic changes to a Hollywood rite he calls “stodgy” and mindlessly hidebound: “Moses didn’t have a third tablet that said awards show had to have a red carpet, an orchestra and bad presenters’ speeches.”The Emmys could be approached as a comedy extravaganza, he said, or (possibly said tongue-in-cheek) be held on the “Family Feud” set with Steve Harvey as host.But like the awards themselves, there would be winners and losers.“By making the Emmys a really good show, in some ways you’ve got to sacrifice some of the things that are most dear to the people who are involved,” Thompson said.___Online:https://www.emmys.com___Lynn Elber is a national television columnist for The Associated Press.
