Share to Twitter Share to Linkedin Whether you’re a manager at a company with 3,000 employees or three, something that leaders across industries have learned in the past two years is that giving employees more flexibility is key to retention and recruiting of new hires. The pandemic forced the majority (~70%) of the US workforce to adapt in a plethora of different ways to keep everyone healthy while still continuing to work efficiently. Companies that previously had 0% of their employees working remotely had to figure out how to seamlessly transfer all operations to a 100% digital environment. While obviously a ton of bad things came from the pandemic, that’s not to say there weren’t learnings and lessons discovered across the board. The reality is that more talent in every part of the country, and the world, now has access to greater opportunities because of the increased normalization of remote work. Gone are the days where you have to live in San Francisco … [Read more...] about 30 Executives’ Perspectives On Remote, Hybrid, And In-Office Work
Sanjay Sapre is the current President of Franklin Templeton India. His term ends in July 2022. Late evening on April 23, 2020, Sanjay Sapre , president of Franklin Templeton Asset Management (India) Ltd, made probably, one of the most awkward public announcements in his life—that of winding up six of the fund house’s marquee debt funds. These were all open-ended debt funds and weren’t meant to be shut down. Franklin Templeton believed that by winding up the schemes, it would buy the fund house time to sell its illiquid securities once market conditions improved. At the time, the COVID-19 global pandemic was declared, equity markets had fallen sharply and the debt market had frozen. Debt fund investors rushed to take their money out and fund houses everywhere saw redemptions. Franklin Templeton India was the worst affected because it had been running a high-yield strategy across six of its debt schemes, totaling assets worth Rs 25,215 crore as of April 23, 2020. Its … [Read more...] about Franklin Templeton is here to stay in India, we are hiring and getting ready to launch new funds: Sanjay Sapre
PHATTHALUNG: Satri Phatthalung School is investigating the factors that drove a 14-year-old female student to suicide, after a close friend pointed to the girl's dire financial situation as being the main reason. The last straw is said to have been the advice of a student counsellor who told the girl to give up studying at the school given her money problems, according to the friend. The girl texted several of her friends before she hanged herself last Thursday at her home, saying she wanted her death to be a message for the school and her family that things need to change. The story came to light when a popular Facebook page, Yak Dang Chat Hai Return Part 3 , published it, sparking a public outcry over the girl's suicide. Mali Kaeo-la-iat, the school's director, insisted help had been offered and it was a misunderstanding that led the girl to take her own life. The school has now launched a formal investigation to find out the truth behind what happened, she added. … [Read more...] about 14-year-old girl’s suicide investigated
Today News Africa White House correspondent Simon Ateba hit back at the White House Correspondents Association (WHCA) threatening to suspend or expel him for interrupting Friday’s White House press briefing. Ateba derailed White House press secretary Jen Psaki’s last briefing as he talked over two reporters, including Associated Press reporter Zeke Miller. After one of the reporters confronted the Today Africa News reporter, Psaki stepped in and ordered him to respect the fellow White House reporters. White House Correspondents Association President and CBS News Radio White House correspondent Steven Portnoy addressed Ateba’s interruptions in a Monday email obtained by the Daily Caller threatening to enact their right to suspend him from the briefing room. “Your disruptive behavior at last Friday’s briefing interrupted your colleagues and reflected poorly on the press corps,” he said. “There is no right of any reporter to be called on by any official. Preventing your … [Read more...] about ‘It’s Disgusting’: Reporter Hits Back After WHCA Threatens To Expel Him For Interrupting Psaki’s Last Briefing
Share to Twitter Share to Linkedin On September 2, 2003, in a cave on the island of Flores in Indonesia, a team of Australian and Indonesian archeologists discovered a tiny, nearly complete skeleton that looked like it might have been that of a dwarf-sized early human. Over the next year or so they recovered more skeletons and some parts of skeletons. By the year 2009, the count was up to fourteen individuals for whom archeologists had found whole or partial skeletal remains. Because many stone blades were also found and the fauna population of Flores includes no non-human primates, the scientists entertained the idea that the organic remains found beginning in 2003 are indeed those of creatures that were somewhat sentient. Initially, scientists pronounced all of the skeletal remains as being around 12,000 years old. Later, the estimate has been revised upwards. Some seem to be as much as 100,000 years old. The youngest remains are believed to be about 60,000 … [Read more...] about Book Review: Gregory Forth’s ‘Between Ape And Human’
By CAROLYN THOMPSON, MICHAEL R. SISAK and ERIC TUCKER BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) — The white gunman accused of massacring 10 Black people at a Buffalo supermarket wrote as far back as November about staging a livestreamed attack on African Americans, practiced shooting from his car and traveled hours from his home in March to scout out the store, according to detailed diary entries he appears to have posted online. The keeper of the diary posted hand-drawn maps of the grocery store along with tallies of the number of Black people he counted there, and recounted how a Black security guard at the supermarket confronted him that day to ask what he was up to. A Black security guard was among the dead in Saturday’s shooting rampage. The diary taken from the chat platform Discord came to light two days after 18-year-old Payton Gendron allegedly opened fire with an AR-15-style rifle at the Tops Friendly Market. He was wearing body armor and used a helmet camera to livestream the bloodbath on … [Read more...] about Online diary: Buffalo gunman plotted attack for months
