Jeremiah Gray spearheaded San Miguel Alab Pilipinas in the Asean Basketball League. —TRISTAN TAMAYO Wanting to stay competitive for many years to come, Barangay Ginebra on Tuesday pulled out a post-Draft trade that had the Gin Kings addressing a position where they have aging stars. The injured Jeremiah Gray, selected as the second overall choice by Terrafirma on Sunday, found his way to the Kings’ lair after the Dyip shipped him for No. 8 pick Javi Gomez de Liaño and unheralded sophomore Brian Enriquez. Ginebra coach Tim Cone said the team is willing to take a chance on Gray’s injured knee as even his delayed arrival can certainly shore up their stock with the likes of Jeff Chan, Jared Dillinger and the 40-year-old Joe Devance needing support at the forward spot. Recovering in the US “Jeremiah is a talent we’re ready to wait for,” Cone told the Inquirer shortly after the league officially cleared the swap. Gray wasn’t able to attend the Draft because he is still in the … [Read more...] about Gin Kings acquire injured Jeremiah Gray, load up on position where they are aging the most

Share to Twitter Share to Linkedin The modern leader doesn’t just lead a company. The modern leader is a figurehead, a public persona, a personality. They have a story to tell and a message to share, both within their company and their industry. This story generates trust, buy-in and affinity and can be the difference between roaring success and abject failure. The problem? Many leaders make painful mistakes when telling their story, undermining their quest to inspire and empower.

They are both beautiful countries and stand out amongst their south east asian counterparts for their food, culture and scenery. But which one is your choice for travelling or living in? Here are some introductory thoughts… Influences Thailand is a constitutional monarchy and the former king, King Bhumibol, was greatly loved and respected. His son, King Maha Vachiralongkorn, now maintains the customs and traditions of the Thai monarchy. His coronation was an elaborate ceremony in May 2019 celebrated by all Thais. The main religion in Thailand is Theravada Buddhism. Monks retain high status and are a big part of daily life, from festivals to daily blessings. Young Thai men become novice monks for a period – usually 1-3 weeks – to earn “merit” for their families. Thailand is a hodge podge of old culture and traditions fused with modern western influences – often at the same time. Thais celebrate everything and are reasonably tolerant to all cultures. Thai people always try … [Read more...] about Vietnam versus Thailand – which is the best for travel or living?
“Whilst Thailand is often nicknamed the ‘land of a thousand 7-elevens’, with a convenience store on just about every corner, there are very few of these in Vietnam, for now.” With the Thai Baht on a high at the moment, along with stricter enforcement of visa rules, some expats say they’ve had enough and are heading to Vietnam, or some other south east Asian country, where they might improve their personal situation. For example, an expat pensioner, on a fixed income, from a country where the Thai baht has risen against your currency, Thailand has become a more expensive option – perhaps impossible to make ends meet anymore with your old pension. The British pound, as just one currency, has gone from around 55 baht to the pound four years ago, to now around 39 baht, a big loss in value. Meanwhile the cost of living in Thailand has risen over the last decade. But Vietnam has its own challenges and, whilst being an amazing place to explore as a tourist, may not be to everyone’s … [Read more...] about So you want to move to Vietnam?

In the world of business, everyone loves a contract. What’s not to love? They make you feel warm and fuzzy. A contract implies commitment, negotiation, and agreements to mitigate risk—all good things. advertisement advertisement After signing a contract, both sides feel confident that they can start from a place of trust with clear expectations in place. But here’s what many companies get wrong: While employment may be secured on paper, it also represents a relationship that needs to be continually fostered and maintained . Not taking the above into account is why many leaders are often blindsided by high turnover rates (as we all saw with the Great Resignation ). “What happened?” they ask. They had a contract, after all, which is a “done deal.” But I like to remind my peers in leadership that, just as in a marriage, a piece of paper isn’t a guarantee for future longevity in the workplace. advertisement Contracts fall short of … [Read more...] about Instead of binding contracts, focus on this workplace touchstone for connected team
