Mata Says Anthony Martials Style of Play Benefits Whole Squad

Rabat – Juan Mata, Manchester United’s midfielder, has praised his new teammate, Anthony Martial, saying that his style of play benefits the whole squad.“I think everyone is impressed. We knew that he was a very good player, but he’s been great” the Spanish international told went on to add that the French youngster is helping Manchester United with his personality and his way of playing. “He’s given us a lot of things, not just the goals – his way of playing is helping the team a lot.“He’s a good guy and settling in very quickly which is very good for everyone.”Mata’s statement come to quite the harsh criticism that was leveled against the 19-year old French international since he was transferred from Monaco to Old Trafford for a whopping 50 million euros plus 30 million euros as bonus.Many Premier League observers called the amount of his transfer “hallucinating” for an untested 19-year old player who had yet to prove his talent.Van Gaal, Manchester United’s coach, was among the voices that criticized the amount of his transfer when he said: “the amount of the transfer is ridiculous and symbolic of the crazy world in which we live.”But the Dutch manager has quickly changed his position after the French youngster delivered an outstanding performance for his team as he scored 3 goals in two Premier League appearances.Van Gaal was quoted by British media as saying that Martial will “get even better” when he settles down and moves to his house.“He is still living in a hotel with his wife and kid so he is in the first phase of his adaptation”, said Van Gaal.“He is an open guy, he is listening, watching and he is focusing on the matches so that I can see so for a manager he is a very coachable player and that is also why I like him and I bought him” he added. read more

New WestJet discount airline service not expected until next summer

CALGARY – WestJet (TSX:WJA) says the launch of its new no-frills, low-cost airline won’t be until next summer after initially announcing plans it would start offering flights later this year.The delay comes in part after the airline decided to switch to a lower-cost booking system, CEO Gregg Saretsky said Tuesday as the company posted its second-quarter results.“That adds a little bit of timeline to it, in terms of negotiating of an agreement, and then the physical implementation of all the plumbing that’s required to support it. And we’re taking our time to get it right.”He said WestJet also doesn’t expect to get regulatory certificates until the first quarter of next year, which is when the airline aims to release an initial flight schedule and start selling tickets ahead of a June launch date for flights.Saretsky said the delay means the company can use the quieter spring season to reconfigure the 10 Boeing 737s that it will be shifting over to the new carrier.“They would have to have been done over the Christmas holiday period to be available for flying revenue service in January, and we’d rather not take that hit to capacity during a very strong time of year,” he said.The service will be separate from WestJet, with a new head-office staff moving to an independent location early next year. The new airline will also be separate from the various stages of union efforts underway at WestJet itself.The company will start contract negotiations with the Air Line Pilots Association, International in September, after WestJet pilots voted in May to join the union. Five other unions are also campaigning to represent other WestJet employees.“We’re the largest non-organized enterprise in the country, a very attractive target, but ultimately it will be up to WestJetters to decide,” Saretsky said.He said he expects the pilot negotiations to be a lengthy process, noting that pilots at JetBlue Airways in the U.S. has gone four years without a first agreement. He did not see any impact on the company this year or next from the unionization of the pilots.The union drives come as the company is moving ahead with its planned international expansion on larger planes, with Saretsky noting the potential of the Chinese market, and overall improved profitability at the airline.In the quarter ending June 30, WestJet earned $48.4 million, or 41 cents per share, compared with $36.7 million or 30 cents per share in the same quarter last year.WestJet’s results were better than analysts expected, helping send the company’s share price up 95 cents, or 3.84 per cent, to $25.81 in midday trading.

Every week, we will list five plays, elements of plays or series of plays that made the most significant impact in Ohio State’s games. Here’s the five plays that mattered most in No. 8 Ohio State’s 38-7 win versus Army.Barrett’s 107th career touchdownQuarterback J.T. Barrett etched his name further into history Saturday with his fourth-quarter touchdown pass to sophomore wide receiver Austin Mack.The 9-yard strike with 7:01 remaining in the game was touchdown No. 107 for Barrett, surpassing former Purdue quarterback and eventual NFL Hall of Famer Drew Brees on the Big Ten’s all-time touchdowns responsible for list.Barrett finished the game 25-for-33 for 270 yards and two touchdowns through the air, with 41 yards and a touchdown coming on the ground.Ohio State redshirt senior quarterback J.T.

However, with 10:24 remaining in the second quarter, Army quarterback Ahmad Bradshaw fooled Ohio State’s defense and went long to running back Kell Walker who had no one in front of him.Senior safety Erick Smith ran from the left side of the field, dove and batted away a would-be touchdown. The play was reminiscent of the athleticism former safety Malik Hooker showed last season.Dobbins, two plays for 74 yardsOhio State freshman running back J.K. Dobbins had just two carries in the second quarter compared to five carries for 50 yards in the first. When his number was called in the third, he put the game out of reach.Ohio State freshman running back J.K.

Credit: Jack Westerheide | Photo EditorWith 8:23 remaining in the third quarter on the Buckeyes’ first drive of the second half, Dobbins turned on the jets for a 52-yard touchdown after unleashing a devastating juke move to get into the open field. The score put Ohio State up 24-7 and was set up by a Dobbins 22-yard gain on the play prior.18-play, 99-yard, 9:37 Army touchdown driveOhio State gained 204 yards in the first quarter and led 14-0 after 15 minutes. It was clear that Army would have to limit the Buckeyes’ possessions if it wanted to keep the score close. In the second quarter, Ohio State had just one drive that ended with three points due to Army’s 18-play, 99-yard touchdown drive that spanned nearly 10 minutes.The triple-option offense allows a team to have long drives and wear out opposing defenses. Eighteen consecutive plays will tire any defense, and Army’s long, methodical drive was the reason why the game was only a 10-point difference at halftime.Third-down stop results in Army missed field goalArmy began the second half with the ball and drove all the way to Ohio State’s 23-yard line. A touchdown would have cut the game to just three points, but the Ohio State defense made a stand.On the 10th play of a six-minute drive, safeties Damon Webb and Jordan Fuller played in the box and attacked the backfield, dropping running back Darnell Woolfolk for a 3-yard loss on third-and-3. The next play, Army kicker Blake Wilson missed left on a 43-yard field goal try, which kept the score 17-7.Two plays later, Dobbins found paydirt for the decisive score. read more

By Fora Staff Tuesday 25 Apr 2017, 3:13 PM Share25 Tweet Email1 Take me to Fora IRISH TECH EVENTS company Web Summit has announced plans to hire 40 staff – including a person given the task of dealing with the Irish government.The Dublin-based company, which currently has 150 staff on its books, runs a number of tech events around the world in Portugal, Spain, Hong Kong and the US.The firm will be hiring for a range of roles including data-based engineering positions, a producer for its speaker stages and an advisor for the Dutch market.One notable role the company has sought to fill is an ‘Irish government affairs manager’ for its Dublin office, with the candidate expected to have over eight years experience in public policy and government relations.The move appears to be a play by the company to repair relations with Irish state bodies ahead of bringing an event back to Irish shores.Fora understands Web Summit is considering moving its fintech event, Moneyconf, from Madrid to Dublin for future conferences. However, the company has said it is also looking into Edinburgh and Paris as possible venues.The job spec for the new role states it would involve representing Web Summit in its engagement with state agencies and “promote the values of Web Summit to the Irish government”.A Facebook post by the company yesterday promoted the role and said: Image: PA WIRE 16 Comments Portuguese football legend Luis Figo Source: Web SummitA government spatThe event organisers had a high-profile and public spat with Irish officials in 2015, when its flagship event was moved from Dublin to Lisbon. Its 2014 event in the Irish capital, in particular, was notoriously beset with WiFi problems.During the war of words, Web Summit co-founder and chief executive Paddy Cosgrave variously raised concerns about traffic management, public transport and hotel costs in Dublin city.He also criticised the Irish government for not making the most of the event and published a series of emails between his company and state officials to demonstrate what it was claimed was a lackadaisical approach from government.For moving its main event to Lisbon, Web Summit will bag €1.3 million a year over a three-year period from Portuguese governments, while it has also opened an office in the city.However its main base remains in Dublin, where the majority of the 40 new positions are expected to be filled.Hiring techniquesEach of the company’s advertised positions comes with a list of perks, including fully subsidised healthcare cover, free gym membership and an “unlimited supply of fresh fruit”.This latest hiring announcement has come just over a year after the company announced plans to hire 100 people.Meanwhile in 2014, the company attracted controversy when it advertised 40 new positions but made it clear that only applicants with a first-class honours from an NUI college would be considered.However, graduates of Trinity College Dublin – where Cosgrave previously studied – who achieved the lower 2.1 grade would also be considered.Written by Killian Woods and posted on Apr 25th 2017, 3:13 PM center_img 14,205 Views Read: People who paid thousands for tickets left waiting outside Web SummitRead: Looks like the Web Summit was doing quite well in Dublin Short URL Get Fora’s NEW daily digest of the morning’s key business news: Good at building relationships with Irish politicians?

Flipkart Snapdeal Amazon Other Etailers Likely to Offer 500 Jobs With Rs

first_imgIt’s achche din (good days) for senior executives eager to switch jobs, as e-commerce companies are likely to recruit about 500 executives with an annual pay package in excess of Rs 1 crore.Flush with funds from institutional investors, firms such as Flipkart, Amazon, Snapdeal and other e-commerce players are keen to hire talent to keep pace with the boom in the sector and get high valuations for their companies when they go for initial public offerings (IPOs).The hiring projections have been made by five head hunters including RGF Executive Search, Longhouse Consulting and ABC Consultants, according to a report in The Economic Times.Most of the hiring is likely to take place in Flipkart, Amazon and Snapdeal.Ola, Uber, Quikr, CommonFloor, Yepme, OLX, Junglee, FashionAndYou, Hungama, BookMyShow, Jabong, Cleartrip and Lenskart are the other companies that are expected to roll out such lucrative offers. In the past six months, Delhi-based ABC Consultants has been hunting for about 100 senior-level executives for online retailing firms, according to its director Siddharth Raisurana.Longhouse Consulting is witnessing similar demand for top executives. “We have 70-80% of our business coming from ecommerce and expect to handle 180-200 mandates this year, up from 75-85 last year,” Anshuman Das, managing partner, Longhouse Consulting, told the daily. “We are filling in at least one position a day at the leadership level,” said GC Jayaprakash, executive director at RGF Executive Search.The e-commerce firms see such executives as wealth creators who will enable the firms get better valuations during IPOs and therefore willing to ‘pay a premium’ to them, according to Jayaprakash.  The hiring spree is also an outcome of funding these companies have been getting in the recent past.”Investors are bringing hundreds of millions of dollars. We can spend it either on infrastructure or people. And that’s what they are doing – investing in people,” the daily quoted a HR head of one of the top online retailers as saying.The crore-plus package is the total cost to company (CTC), of which 30 percent would be in the form of stocks and employee stock options (ESOPs).Leadership hiring at India’s second largest e-commerce firm Snapdeal has increased due to fast growth in business, according to Saurabh Nigam, VP, HR at Snapdeal.”We’re a 5,000 people strong team now, and need to beef up our leadership hiring,” he added.Recently, Snapdeal granted stock options to 1,200 employees to recognize their contribution to its success and retain them. Overall, online retailers are likely to roll out nearly 1,000 offers for senior level posts this year compared to 250-300 last year, with half of them getting paid Rs 1 crore or above.”Senior-level hiring has definitely seen an uptick. We would have hired about 7 positions six months ago. In this quarter alone, we are looking at closing 7-8 positions. The business is growing and we need senior talent for roles like sales, products and technology,” said Anupama Beri, HR head, MagicBricks, who was former HR head at Snapdeal.last_img read more

A Diamond is Forever The Advertising Campaign that Created the Diamond Industry

first_imgThese days a diamond engagement ring is seen as a fact of life, as much a part of the big day as a veil and a multi-tiered cake. However, the truth behind this nuptials tradition is a cynical marketing ploy, one of the most groundbreaking, elaborate, and successful advertising campaigns ever devised. The grand deception began during the diamond boom of the late 19th century. Before the discovery of mines in South Africa containing vast quantities of diamonds, the glittering stones were seen as rare and precious commodities. Now they were everywhere, and the British mining bosses had a problem.Diamond engagement rings were once worn only by nobility and aristocracy.The serious profit associated with the elusive diamond was in danger of going up in smoke, or at least down a deep, dark hole. Something had to be done to keep the mystique and maintain those high prices. A company was created in 1888, De Beers Consolidated Mines Ltd. This was a multi-faceted entity which became the De Beers we know today.Cecil Rhodes founded De Beers in 1888.As described by Edward Jay Epstein in The Atlantic of February 1982, “De Beers proved to be the most successful cartel arrangement in the annals of modern commerce.”It operated under several titles around the world to keep the narrative alive. The titanic figure who started De Beers was Cecil Rhodes, the controversial businessman and politician. He named the endeavor after the two brothers whose land he bought for a diamond mine. So while the grubby enterprise has the De Beers name on it, Rhodes can be seen as one of the true authors of the situation.The top of the N. W. Ayer & Son headquarters building at 210 West Washington Square in Philadelphia, built in 1928 and designed by Ralph Bencker in the Art Deco style. Photo by Beyond My Ken CC BY-SA 4.0This illusion created by De Beers took on a greater potency in 1938, when the son of fellow founder Ernest Oppenheimer visited the offices of New York ad agency N. W. Ayer.Harry Oppenheimer wanted to send a clear message to Americans that they should be buying diamonds. Sales were patchy and the price of the commodity was low.Harry Oppenheimer (left) in Amsterdam, 1945.The “Mad Men” of N. W. Ayer helped take the questionable activities of De Beers to the next level. Realizing the economy wasn’t enthused about luxury items such as diamonds, they decided to adopt another tack. Epstein’s piece outlines the Ayer approach: “Its campaign had required ‘the conception of a new form of advertising which has been widely imitated ever since. There was no direct sale to be made.Related Video:There was no brand name to be impressed on the public mind. There was simply an idea–the eternal emotional value surrounding the diamond.’”1960 De Beers Diamonds Advertisement, Readers Digest, August 1960. Photo by SenseiAlan/ FLickr CC BY 2.0Oppenheimer set in motion the concept of a diamond as the ultimate symbol of romance for hard-working citizens. By putting a rock on the finger of their sweetheart, the breadwinner was not only displaying unparalleled affection but also displaying enviable social status. And the bigger the diamond, the better!DeBeer’s marketing pushed the idea that a diamond engagement ring is the ultimate gesture of love.The plan worked. Between 1939 and 1979 sales figures increased from $23 million to $2.1 billion. As this was happening, N.W. Ayer’s budget was as high as the nearest skyscraper… $10 million in ‘79, compared to $200,000 in ‘39. There were also different elements to the marketing strategy to add extra bait for consumers.A close-up of Princess Margaretha’s engagement ring.Young people were lectured on the subject to both educate and entrap. The “Diamond Information Center” was launched to keep the deluge of misinformation going, and the connection of Rhodes’ legacy to the British Royal Family certainly came in handy. Even today, Meghan Markle’s engagement ring has a series of diamonds. The Telegraph reported in November 2017 that “the central stone is a diamond from Botswana.”The gift of a gold ring set with one or several diamond’s that might cost as much as three-month’s salary is seen by many as an essential engagement tradition.The crowning glory however (if you’ll pardon the pun) was the De Beers slogan: “A diamond is forever.” Not only can it actually be damaged, but if you don’t want to keep it for all that time, it can also be sold. The company don’t want people to do that though, as it affects the market price. It made a cool James Bond movie title though.Related Article: The British Crown Jewels Holds the “Most Infamous Diamond in the World”All that glitters is not gold.

Poll Japanese opposition to nuke power stronger

first_imgAssociated PressTOKYO (AP) – Japanese oppose nuclear power more strongly than they did while the tsunami-damaged Fukushima plant was still in crisis a year ago, according to a poll that found widespread dismay with the government’s handling of that disaster and the ongoing recovery.The survey released Tuesday by the Washington-based Pew Research Center said 70 percent of Japanese believe the country should reduce its reliance on nuclear energy, up from 44 percent last year. How men can have a healthy 2019 How do cataracts affect your vision? Japanese are much more wary of nuclear power now than they were even as the disaster was unfolding. A year ago, Japanese were divided in their views on atomic energy: 44 percent believed it should reduced, while 46 percent held that it should be maintained.The public has a very low opinion of the government and the media. Only 12 percent see the central government as having a positive influence on the country, while Prime Minister Yoshihiko Noda, who took office last September, is viewed positively by only 30 percent of the people. The media, meanwhile, is seen as having a positive impact by 34 percent, a negative by 63 percent.In the wake of the disaster, distrust of the government and mainstream media has grown amid the perception that authorities were not being forthright with the public _ and that the media outlets weren’t doing enough to investigate or hold authorities accountable.The Japanese military, or Self-Defense Force, was the only major institution in the poll viewed positively _ by 89 percent of respondents. The SDF was widely viewed as helpful and effective in its immediate relief efforts after the tsunami. Its personnel dug through mud and debris to search for bodies, delivered food and fuel to survivors and even built makeshift hot baths at some evacuation centers. The poll, based on 700 telephone interviews between March 20 and April 12, has a margin of error of 4.1 percent. It is part of the Pew Research Center’s annual Global Attitude Project, which this year conducted polls in 21 countries.__Follow Malcolm Foster on Twitter at (Copyright 2012 The Associated Press.

All 50 of Japan’s usable nuclear reactors have been shut down as of last month due to routine inspections and safety concerns, straining the country’s ability to meet power demands.The survey found that 80 percent of Japanese are dissatisfied with the government’s handling of the nuclear crisis, caused by a massive earthquake and tsunami on March 11 that damaged the Fukushima Dai-ichi nuclear power plant, which spewed radiation into the surrounding air, soil and water.Overall, the poll showed widespread pessimism: Some 78 percent of the people are unhappy with the direction of the country, and 93 percent perceive the economy to be in a bad state.That contrasts with hopes last year that Japan might turn the tragedy into something positive: A year ago, 59 percent believed the disasters would make Japan stronger. Now 39 percent hold that view, and 47 percent believe it has made the country weaker.Health concerns about radiation exposure have eased only slightly, with 52 percent of people saying they are worried that they or someone in their family may have been exposed to radiation, while 47 percent are unconcerned. In April 2011, when the previous poll was conducted, 59 percent were worried about radiation exposure. Comments   Share   New high school in Mesa lets students pick career pathslast_img read more

Its time for the NCAA to create two separate targeting penalties

first_imgLSU AD Joe Alleva has reportedly lobbied the SEC office to remove White’s mandatory suspension. It won’t work, but it’s a commendable, necessary effort. Said the SEC office in response to the play:By rule, no player shall target and make forcible contact to the head or neck area of a defenseless opponent. The QB on the play was defenseless at the time of the contact. By rule, all targeting calls are reviewed. The call was reviewed and confirmed.So White, LSU’s best defensive player, will miss half the game against the nation’s best offense, while Alabama linebacker Mack Wilson missed zero time for a near identical hit.Mack Wilson just broke Jarrett Guarantano— Skye Underwood (@SkyeUnderwood) October 20, 2018In September, USC linebacker Porter Gustin remained in the game after this hit.Porter Gustin missed the 1st half tonight due to targeting in the last game… and now he’s doing this??— CFB Gif’er (@CFBgifer) September 22, 2018And, yes, there’s a scandalous backstory to why Gustin was allowed to remain in that game, but the two hits underscore the problems with the targeting foul as it’s currently legislated in college football. Even if Gustin’s hit was correctly ruled as targeting — as everyone but the Pac-12’s top business executive thought it was — the two hits are still fundamentally different. Gustin launches the crown of his helmet into the quarterback’s; White does not. Gustin takes the quarterback to the ground; White does not.By the letter of the law, White’s hit was targeting. Mississippi State quarterback Nick Fitzgerald was in a defenseless position and White (briefly) makes contact with his head. But there was no intent to injure by White. He does not leave his feet and launches himself into Fitzgerald’s chest, not his head or neck. The contact upon his head is incidental, not intentional.The targeting foul as it’s currently constructed is not going away. The Powers That Be view it necessary to preserve football’s future by legislating head and neck shots out of football. While the penalty isn’t going away, it can and should be altered to something like this:Targeting I: Incidental contact upon the head or neck area of a defenseless player — 15 yardsTargeting II: Intentional contact upon the head or neck area of a defenseless player — 15 yards and an ejectionConferences should also create an appeals process where a Targeting II call can be downgraded to a Targeting I when appropriate. “The rule book says so” is not a justifiable reason to allow an incorrectly, overly harsh penalty to stand.Targeting will always be a judgment call, up to the interpretation of the referee on the field and the officials in the booth and the command center. But the stakes are such that the professionals involved simply cannot get it wrong and should not be bound by the letter of the law to treat a proverbial misdemeanor (like the White play is) like a felony. An incorrect pass interference flag costs 15 yards. An incorrect targeting flag costs the offender 8 percent of his season.There’s nothing Alleva can do to get White on the field for the first half against Alabama, but the play should be used as an example to prevent Devin Whites from suspensions they don’t deserve. A major development in Nov. 3’s Alabama-LSU game occurred 14 days before kickoff. In the fourth quarter of Saturday night’s LSU-Mississippi State game, Tigers linebacker Devin White was ejected for targeting meaning, by rule, he’ll miss the first half of LSU’s next game… which happens to be Alabama.White’s crime was captured on camera. Squeamish viewers may want to look away.#LSU LB Devin White will miss the 1st half of the #Alabama game for this targeting penalty:— ESPN NOLA 100.3 FM (@ESPNRadioNOLA) October 21, 2018 AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Sponsored By Connatixlast_img read more
