Arsenal CEO, Gazidis, Eyeing Milan Job

first_imgThe Italian giants want Gazidis to respond by the start of next month, hoping a promise of more money and overseeing a club overhaul will be enough to persuade him to make the switch.Arsenal were expecting the 53-year-old to accept a new challenge in Serie A, but it is understood he is yet to make a decision on his future.Gazidis remains one of the most well-paid executives in the Premier League, although his salary dropped by around £50,000 between 2016 and 2017.He played a major role in appointing Emery following Arsene Wenger’s departure earlier this year and now enjoys greater control at the Emirates Stadium.However, the club’s strict transfer and wage budget could scupper plans to take on Manchester City and challenge for the title once again.AC Milan’s new American owners, Elliott Management, have ambitions to take on Juventus, Napoli, Roma and rivals Inter at the top of Italian football.They hope Gazidis will use almost a decade of experience in England’s top-flight to help them bridge the gap after finishing sixth last season.Meanwhile, the Gunners who lost their second game of the new season to Chelsea at the weekend are getting edgy.Lucas Torreira was reportedly involved in a fiery confrontation with Gunners coach Juan Carlos Carcedo on Sunday. The Gunners lost 3-2 to Chelsea at Stamford Bridge, meaning they are yet to register a single Premier League point so far this season.Reports out of England claimed that the new Arsenal coach, who arrived at the Emirates with Unai Emery, took issue with Torreira’s failure to track Marcos Alonso for Chelsea’s winning goal. Torreira who didn’t find the accusation funny was said to have snapped back, leading to the shouting match.Jack Wilshere who was forced out of Arsenal is hoping to prove Unai Emery was wrong to end his Arsenal career when he makes an emotional return to the Emirates Stadium with West Ham this weekend.The England international was expected to sign a new long-term contract earlier this year, but Arsenal’s decision to replace Arsene Wenger with Emery changed the picture dramatically.Wilshere was told he was unlikely to feature regularly in the Spaniard’s starting XI following the signings of Lucas Torreira and Matteo Guendouzi and moved across the capital.Like Arsenal, West Ham head into Saturday’s derby having failed to register a point in their opening two matches of the new season and Wilshere is out to prove a point against his former employers.“I’ve got to try and block all the emotion out,’ Wilshere told the club’s match-day programme for Saturday’s game against Bournemouth.Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegram Arsenal Chief Executive Ivan Gazidis is considering taking a lucrative offer tabled by AC Milan.Gazidis, who became CEO at Arsenal in 2009 and is now tasked with the day-to-day running of the club, was one of the key players in appointing new boss Unai Emery.However, according to UK’s  The Telegraph, his nearly 10-year tenure at the Gunners looks to be in doubt as he mulls over a deal which could earn him £3.6million per year at the San Siro – a £1m increase on his current salary.last_img read more

Aside from the fact that the Allegiant Stadium could quite possibly host the season opener of the NFL next year, the deal for the naming rights of the stadium could also be the biggest in the NFL. According to Forbes and the Las Vegas Review Journal, Allegiant Airlines is likely to fork out between $20 million and $25 million in cash and kind services (per year) to put its name on the Raiders’ new stadium. Another noteworthy point is that the Las Vegas Sun reported that the Raiders have already brought in nearly $400 million in personal seat license fees for their new stadium in Las Vegas. This essentially means that the Raiders have sold out the season tickets for 2020. Also Read | Tom Brady Sends Out Christmas Day Greeting After Patriots Wrap Up 11th AFC East Title In August this year, the Oakland Raiders announced a partnership with Allegiant Airlines. It ultimately led to the naming of the Raiders’ new stadium as the ‘Allegiant Stadium’.

SOLICITOR WELCOMES €1.4M INTERIM SETTLEMENT FOR GIRL WHO SUED LETTERKENNY HOSPITAL

first_imgDamian Tansey: Took the case for Ruby against the HSEA LITTLE County Donegal girl made legal history today when she was awarded €1.4M interim damages in a legal action against Letterkenny General Hospital. The settlement will be reviewed again in four years in the first case of its kind before the High Court.Ruby McCandless (now 7) was left brain damaged after a failure to diagnose a serious medical condition in her mother in the days before her birth. Callan Tansey Solicitors, lawyers for Ruby and her mother Christina heavily criticised the Health Service Executive for the delay in admitting liability in the case.The court was told that at her final antenatal check-up at an outreach clinic in Carndonagh Community Hospital in March 2006, Mrs McCandless – from Gleneely –  had her blood pressure taken four times because nurses were so concerned about it.However, the consultant who reviewed her said her high blood pressure was a borderline case and told her to attend her GP three days later.Her blood pressure was 140 over 100 and she should have been immediately referred to hospital.She was not warned about the possibility or symptoms of a serious complication of maternal high blood pressure – pre-eclampsia.Two days later, she suffered an eclamptic seizure at home which deprived her baby of oxygen.She had to be taken by ambulance to Letterkenny General Hospital 72km (45 miles) away where Ruby was delivered by emergency C-section on 30 March.In the days following her birth, it became clear she had suffered permanent brain damage.She has cerebral palsy, is severely physically disabled and will need constant care for the rest of her life.In her statement of claim on behalf of her daughter, Mrs McCandless alleged there was only one consultant on duty at her final antenatal check-up two days before the birth where there would normally be two.She said he appeared “harassed and under pressure” and her visit was very short.It was alleged there was negligence and breach of duty in failing to admit her to hospital and diagnose her condition at the earliest opportunity or to warn her about the symptoms of pre-eclampsia.Today the High Court approved an interim settlement of €1.4m and the case will return to court in four years’ time to reassess her needs.Ms Justice Mary Irvine said the settlement was in the best interests of the young girl.She said it was the first time an interim settlement had been reached for four years and saved the family the trouble of returning to court every two years.Afterwards, Mrs McCandless said: “I am delighted and relieved it is all over, we’re happy with the settlement.”Her solicitor Damien Tansey, from Callan Tansey Solicitors in Sligo which specialises in complex legal work involving the health services, said the settlement would transform Ruby’s life as she would be provided with equipment and facilities.“It took five years for the case to settle and it was unfortunate that it took the HSE so long to admit liability,” he said.“It is also good for the family that they can forget about legal concerns now until a review of Ruby’s needs in four years,” added Mr Tansey.SOLICITOR WELCOMES €1.4M INTERIM SETTLEMENT FOR GIRL WHO SUED LETTERKENNY HOSPITAL was last modified: March 5th, 2014 by John2Share this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:Callan Tansey Solicitorscerebal palsyHIGH COURTRuby McCandlesslast_img read more

first_img4 September 2012A new policy-orientated web portal on children’s rights, called Policy Action Network, or PAN: Children, was announced during a panel discussion on children in Cape Town on Monday.The portal – children.pan.org.za – is a partnership between the United Nations Children’s Fund (Unicef) and South Africa’s Human Sciences Research Council’s (HSRC).According to the HSRC, PAN: Children will provide high-quality, timely information which can be used to inform decision-making and policy.“It will strengthen the dialogue between the producers and the users of child-related research evidence to build networks between researchers and policy makers,” the HSRC said in a statement. “The aim is also to generate debates on key policy issues affecting children in South Africa.”The web portal is primarily targeted at South African policy makers and government officials involved in planning, implementation, monitoring and evaluation of policies and programmes relating to children, as well as academics and other research institutions working on issues related to child rights and their well-being.The knowledge-hub “will also be of value to civil society organisations, private sector and development sector professionals involved in the advancement of child rights,” the HSRC said. “Lastly, the hub will allow other countries with an interest in South African policy to easily access relevant information.”PAN: Children also aims to establish and maintain an up-to-date digital repository of the most credible publications available on child rights in South Africa.The information and resources available include advocacy initiatives and networks, case studies, case law, country studies, government policy and legislation, and other useful information.In addition, the portal will produce regular opinion pieces written by acknowledged research experts in the child rights arena, commenting on current debates and providing insight on policy development and practice.SAinfo reporterlast_img read more

5 Ways to Save Money for Your Side Hustle

first_imgIs AI Really a Threat to Traditional Jobs? Tags:#money tips#Trending Bart Schachter Related Posts Most people start side hustles because they want to be business owners and make some extra money — maybe even enough to eventually stop working their day job. But if they’re not careful, their side hustle could actually end up costing them money.U.S. News & World Report found that some people lose money on their side ventures. Their money was sunk in certifications, workspace rentals, maintenance fees, and self-employment taxes. Add in potential lost productivity from physical exhaustion or distractions, and you may be losing money at your day job, too, in terms of raises, bonuses, or promotions.That means it’s important to save money before and during the launch of your side hustle. Having a cushion makes it possible to plan ahead, make smart decisions regarding your business, and expand when you’re ready. It also guarantees you’ll take action based on what’s best for your business, not what’s best for your wallet in the moment.Here are a few ways to help your side hustle be profitable without draining your funds. Sign up for automatic savings. A lot of people open checking accounts and savings accounts simultaneously, with the goal of eventually moving money from checking into savings to create a safety net. With 57 percent of Americans having less than $1,000 in their savings accounts, it’s clear that doesn’t happen often in reality.To overcome your best intentions you never fulfill, open an account that has automatic savings set up. Chime has an Automatic Savings program that ensures users automatically transfer 10 percent of their paycheck to savings and have rounded-up amounts added to their savings every time they use their Chime card. In turn, you’ll be saving without doing anything additional, and the best savings are the ones you never see — because you’ve never tempted to tap them. Presell your goods and services with advance payment. Harvard Business Review reported that presales can actually boost long-term sales, so this is a great investment in your business’s end game. Best of all, presales ensure there’s a market for your product or service, meaning you won’t be wasting money by investing more in your side hustle.Presell what you’re working on, whether that’s a webinar, a line of T-shirts, or a translation service. One great way to do this is by offering some sort of sample, from an online portfolio of your work to a case study of another project you worked on. Ask people to not just sign up but commit to your offering by paying upfront. This allows you to anticipate and cover expenses — say, materials or the web designer who’s building your webinar landing page — before using any of your own money. Trade services. If you’re just starting your side hustle, you’re likely reliant upon others to help you get started, whether that’s a screenprinting press you rent time at or a photographer friend who helps you capture images for your website. While some people will simply help you out of the goodness of their heart or their excitement to see you succeed, some won’t — and it’s also not a great idea to be indebted to lots of people from the outset.Instead, work with vendors, distributors, or service providers to establish a trade relationship. If your service translates work into Spanish and your website builder is actually needing translation services for a few clients’ websites, you have a setting ripe for exchange. If your T-shirt business works with a screenprinter whose passion project is a summer camp, offer to design shirts for special camp events in exchange for screenprinting time. These are all ways to staunch the outflow of cash while setting your side hustle up for success. Use your blog to profit. In this day and age, you need a blog to propel your business to success — even if you don’t have a big following, sharing your knowledge and experiences with visitors to your site can build your credibility and push them to work with you. But you don’t have to see your blog as a drag on delivering your products or services — it can be its own source of income, too.By working with affiliate marketers, hosting ads on your blog, and writing sponsored posts or reviews, your blog can bring in money, too. And these can be helpful to visitors — say, a post about a brand of running shoes you highly recommend pairing with your running app — which helps make you “sticky” in clients’ minds. You can use additional income from sponsored posts or affiliate links to fuel your side hustle, making it a money saver rather than a distraction. Claim all your small business expenses. While there are some sticky tax details regarding side hustles — like estimated quarterly taxes — there also some benefits, like claiming expenses for your business. A lot of entrepreneurs miss the deductions hidden within the 74,000 pages of tax code, so educate yourself on what you can claim.If you use your home office, for example, you can claim not just the space, but also the utilities associated with it, such as internet. You can write off equipment you’ve purchased for your side hustle, from computers to cake decorating utensils; you can also write off expenses for travel, including airfare, mileage, or lodging. But you have to track it all in order to claim it. 1tap is a platform that helps entrepreneurs track receipts so they can claim every deduction owed come tax season; it even uses character recognition to eliminate data entry, saving hustlers both time and money.Side hustles are intended to make money, not bleed you dry. To avoid putting in more than you’re getting out, take advantage of these methods for saving your side hustle money so it can make a profit. If you can avoid worrying about money, you’ll be able to focus on building a strong business — and you may even find yourself no longer needing your day job.   Remote Working Culture: The Facts Business Owne… 5 Trendy Gift Ideas for the Secret Santa Exchan… Bart Schachter is an investor, operator, and tech affectionado, with a passion for business operations, team building, product design, finance, and deal making.

Tendulkar’s ton against England after 26/11 his best: Flintoff

first_imgAndrew Flintoff on Monday rated Sachin Tendulkar’s second innings Test century at Chennai against England as the batting maestro’s career-best and termed his words of gratitude to the visitors for returning to India to play the series after the 26/11 terror strike in Mumbai as a extremely touching gesture.”The one that he scored in Chennai after the 26/11 attack in Mumbai,” the 33-year-old former England all rounder told reporters when asked about the best century scored by the champion batsman in Test cricket.”We flew back and it was decided that we will play in Chennai. England were in a great position. And we thought we are going to win the Test match. But Sachin had other ideas. He scored a hundred. I am never good at losing. However, at that instance it was fitting that Sachin, who was from Mumbai, hit the winning runs,” he said.”The best thing is after the game he thanked everyone of the English players for coming back to India. That was quite a poignant moment for me and rest of the boys,” he said after interacting with aspiring cricketers here in a promotional event.The England team returned home midway through the seven-match ODI series following the three-day terrorist siege of Mumbai before retuning to India to resume the tour and play in the Test series.Saluting Tendulkar’s longevity in the game, Flintoff wished the batsman many more years of international cricket ahead. “He’s an amazing man and a successful player. To play for so long as he has and to score so many runs as he has is amazing. He is somebody I have come to respect. I remember I had come to play for Lancashire under-13. And he was making his Test debut. He was only four years older than me. But he has been playing since then.advertisement”I wanted to get him out. I wanted to impress him, get his respect. Good luck to him. Hope he doesn’t stop at 50 (centuries) and goes on and on and on. He’s been a good ambassador for the game,” he added.On Tendulkar’s comparison with legendary cricketer Don Bradman, he said, “Never played against Bradman. I don’t know. It is wrong in sport to compare heroes. In modern day cricket, Sachin is the best.”Flintoff said while the retirement of some of greats of the current crop of Indian cricketers would create a hole in the team, the country need not be bothered about it yet.”It is a big question. I think (especially) when they are still playing and Sachin (Tendulkar) is in the peak of his life, isn’t he? He keeps scoring runs. He could carry on for a long time.”But you could possibly like Australia had (Matthew) Hayden, (Justin) Langer, (Adam) Gilchrist, (Glenn) McGrath, (Shane) Warne all finished at the same time. It does leave a hole in the side and needs rebuilding process.”However, India are number one and playing fantastically well. I reckon they can carry on for as long as possible,” he added.The former all-rounder said being the host, India would be one of the firm favorites for next year’s World Cup in the sub-continent along with Sri Lanka and Pakistan.I think the sub-continent sides are the favourites — India, Pakistan and Sri Lanka because of the conditions.However, England have also got a chance. Can’t really count out Australia. But again I think India are going to be the favourites on home soil.”But they are under pressure as Indians expect India to do well all the time and that could be a daunting task,” he said.Flintoff said though India were favourites, because of their number one tag in Test matches, facing the hosts in home condition would be a tough challenge in their forthcoming series against South Africa.With inputs from PTIlast_img read more

Efforts underway to promote AYUSH abroad

first_imgKolkata: The ministry of AYUSH (Ayurveda, Yoga, Unani, Siddha and Homeopathy) has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOUs) with a number of foreign countries to promote research and development of traditional medicines abroad.The AYUSH ministry recently entered into an agreement with various institutions across the globe that include the National Centre for Natural Products Research (NCNPR), University of Mississippi in USA, Royal London Hospital for Integrated Medicine in UK, College of Homeopaths of Ontario (CHO) Canada, United States Pharmacopoeia Convention, Universidad Maimonides, Buenos Aires, Argentina and Medical Research Infrastructure and Health Services of Tel Aviv.

It may be mentioned here that the ministry tied up with the World Health Organisation (WHO) to promote India’s traditional form of medical treatment. The ministry in assistance with the WHO, has been developing a standard terminology in Ayurveda, Unani, Sidhha so that the terms which are originally in Sanskrit can be comprehended by the people in foreign countries. The main purpose behind the tie up is to promote the quality and safety of traditional system and medicine and consumer protection. Ayurveda morbidity codes and standard terminology have been prepared so that AYUSH can be adopted in foreign hospitals.
