Does The Glassdoor Employment Confidence Survey Bring Good News?

first_imgAccording to the latest Glassdoor Employment Confidence Survey, “employees have fewer concerns about future layoffs and a growing confidence in their own job security and job market. But three in four employees (76 percent) report they are willing to take a pay cut if faced with losing their job and nearly nine in 10 (88 percent) of those currently unemployed job seekers would accept less than they originally wanted to land a new job.”Though employees show they are prepared, the fact that a high percentage of people are willing to take lower pay for a job is still a tough pill to swallow. Ten short years ago Dell and Trilogy were giving away a Porsche for the most employee referrals, sign-on bonuses were common place, and salary increases were the norm – my how times change!The survey also reports that people expect salaries to increase with an economic recovery…hope they do. We can handle short term pain for long term gain.So is this good news? Yes, in the sense that these employment ‘conditions’ make this a great time to:Work to become an expert at your current jobGo back to school – consider real world and onlineStart a business – talent is available and affordableGet your priorities straight and live lifeThe survey also points out that people in the South are more likely to expect a pay or cost-of-living increase in the next 12 months than people out West – 40% versus 26%, why is that? It’s a question of business-friendly policies in successful states versus the entitlement policies of others – this is a point we need to deal with in the not too distant future.  As soon as the economy makes more serious strides to recover, people will expect more jobs, and higher salaries. So this is a good time to discuss that elephant (or donkey) in the room when it comes to positive jobs and salary recovery…not an easy subject but one we need to get in front of. We’ll watch the economic numbers and hope for the recovery that solves all our problems.So the survey at first blush is not so great news, since we are talking about accepting lower pay after all. But the news can be good depending on how you react and what you do with it, focus on the positives and be prepared to deal with the challenges.Here’s a few recent blogs giving advice to employees, job seekers and companies about what to consider now before the tables turn and the talent is once again in the power position:Arrogance of Talent Supply Threatens To Continue Resume Black HoleProtecting Your Brand During The Hiring Process: Advice for Job Seekers and CompaniesShould Employees Downgrade Job & Salary Expectations For Next Few Years?last_img read more

Bengaluru FC coach lauds hard-working Sunil Chhetri ahead of AFC Cup final

first_imgBengaluru FC are on the cusp of history and coach Albert Roca has urged his players to give their “best performance” in the final of the AFC Cup against Al-Quwa Al-Jawiya (Air Force Club of Iraq) in Doha on Saturday. This is the first instance of an Indian club playing in the final of the AFC Cup. (Bengaluru FC leave for AFC Cup final in Doha)All eyes will once again be on captain Sunil Chhetri who was instrumental in his side’s inspiring 3-1 win over defending champions Johor Darul Ta’zim in Bengaluru last month. However, while lauding “hard-working” Chhetri, Roca made it clear that the team will not be solely dependent on the talismanic striker.”We play as a team and Sunil is the captain of that team. It’s going to take everyone to chip in with their best performances if we are to give ourselves a chance in the final. Whether Sunil scores or not, he’s always working hard,” he said.”He didn’t score in the quarterfinal and the first leg of the semis but Vineeth and Eugene came up with goals. We won’t be depending on Sunil but I know he will lead the team just as he has been all these years,” Roca added.Roca is at the helm of affairs as the club chases history again.”It sure feels nice to be part of Indian football history despite having very little time with the team. It’s also a testament to how hard the boys and the staff have worked to bring the club to this moment. But there is so much more to achieve and we cannot afford to be satisfied with this. We have one more chance to do something special and that’s what we have been focusing on.”advertisementBengaluru FC’s opponents in the summit showdown, Iraq’s Air Force FC, have scored 26 goals so far in the campaign.”I’ve said more than a few times that we play to our strengths. We have got to be brave and I don’t see how going defensive translates to being brave. Yes, they are a good side that loves scoring but we back ourselves.”Asked if has any particular plan for Hammadi Ahmed who has run riot in the AFC Cup 2016 so far, having scored 15 goals, Roca said, “I spend time with the technical staff on the opponents and we’re doing as much homework as we can.”We’re definitely going into this game with a plan and can only hope that it unfolds the way we want it to. Of course, that will mean the boys do everything that is asked of them and maybe more.”When asked how telling a blow could be first goalkeeper Amrinder Singh’s absence in the final, he said, “It’s a shame that he’s missing out but we back (Lalthuammawia) Ralte equally.”He’s been really professional at training and has done enough for us to believe that he will turn up with the goods on the day. All the boys are working hard at training, knocking on the door to earn a place in the starting XI and that helps.”A handful of fans are likely to travel to Doha to cheer for the Blues.”Our fans were amazing on the 19th against Johor and it made me really happy when I heard a few of them would be coming. It tells you a lot about the club and the love that the fans feel towards it. We hope we can make their trip a memorable one.”(With PTI inputs)last_img read more

City Hearts 5th Annual Shakespeare Challenge Set To Be A StarStudded Affair

first_imgThe stars will be out for this year’s 5th annual Shakespear Challenge.City Hearts: Kids Say Yes to the Arts announces that Star Trek DS9’s Armin Shimerman, HBO’s Luck star Diana Burbano, Mad Men’s Morgan Rusler and Hidalgo’s Joshua Wolf Coleman have just joined the distinguished list of judges which include former City Hearts Student Graco Hernandez, as well as Carolyn Marie White, Gale Caswell, and City Hearts Alumni and board member John Sandoval for this year’s Shakespeare Challenge, Recital and Photography Exhibit. On Saturday May 31, 2014.“Can there be a more joyous way to spend a morning than watching pre-teens glorying in Shakespeare’s characters and language?” says Shimerman. “I don’t think so. City Hearts gives that magical learning opportunity to the children of Los Angeles. So why do I do it? Why do I judge? The answer is simple: I’m selfish. They give me the best seat in the house!”“This event is the culmination of a year’s worth of hard work for over 300 students from Los Angeles’ inner city communities who have participated in City Hearts’ Arts programming in Shakespeare, Dance, Musical Theatre and Photography,” explains Sherry Jason, City Hearts founder. In 1977, as a new Lawyer, Jason toured Central Juvenile Hall and met a boy having his first piano lesson. A prodigy, playing Mozart by ear and at 13, a convicted murderer… She walked away wondering what would have been his case history if he had met the piano before guns and gangs. Thus began the story of City Hearts. “Shakespeare Challenge is one of the wonderful opportunity City Hearts has created so our students can explore their talents and see a different vision for their lives,” Jason adds.Will Geer’s Theatricum Botanicum is the perfect venue for an event such as this. Geer built his theater to reach out into the community and bring quality productions to those who haven’t experienced them before or are unable to find resources within their community. Shakespeare Challenge carries on the tradition Geer began years ago and is continued by his family.“Shakespeare Challenge 2014 will begin with a competition between 72 students performing scenes from Macbeth to a Midsummer Nights Dream before our panel of judges and audience members,” explains Jason. “The event is so important to our students, that many of the youths competing have done so since Challenge’s inception. As always, we have a number of young people competing for the first time. We applaud the courage and effort each individual takes in preparing and performing these challenging monologs and scenes.”The afternoon will continue with various dance and performing recitals as well as Photography Exhibitions from some of the amazing young photographers who train with professional Photographers, Raul Vega, Brian Nieman and Katie Dalsemer. “Some of the photographs previewed at this year’s Challenge may also be a part of our Fresh Focus 2014, Photography Exhibit and Auction, to be held on October 19th of this year,” Jason adds.WHEN: Saturday, May 31, 2014. 10am-2:30 pmWHERE:The Will Geer Theatricum Botanicum located at 1419 North Topanga Canyon Boulevard, Topanga, CA.TICKETS: Admission Free but RSVP required 310-455-2898.last_img read more

Missouri Sheriff Urges Residents to Report Muslims’ Store Purchases

New York – An American Sheriff from Missouri has allegedly asked residents to racially profile “foreign speaking” people and Muslims to report on what they purchase at stores.In a xenophobic move that promotes more hatred and intolerance, Laclede County, Missouri Sheriff Wayne Merritt is urging civilians to observe the public moves of those that look and sound like Muslims.According to Sheriff Merritt, if residents consider that a person is a Muslim or foreigner, they should follow them to check their purchases and if found “suspicious”, they should be reported to the authorities. According to KY3 local news, Missouri residents have already begun to profile Muslims. Last week, residents in Lebanon, Missouri, called the police on two Muslim men who bought a large amount of cellphones at a local Wal-Mart.“Somebody went in and bought 60 cellphones from Walmart that’s not normal for this area,” Sheriff Merritt said.The men were interrogated and later released for lack of a legal reason to detain them, according to the Lebanon Police Department report.Sheriff Merritt believes if an activity looks “suspicious”, it needs to be stopped because “we’ve got to be vigilant,” while insisting that this is not about Muslims.“I’m not going to say just because they’re different religion or because they’re Muslim, but these people were they were foreign speaking, then you need to take notice and you need to let us know about it because it doesn’t hurt to check on it. You’re not being racist or anything like that you’re just protecting yourself,” Sheriff Merritt said to KY3 news.Nonetheless, the only people who have been reported to the authorities for allegedly “suspicious” purchases have been Muslims.According to ABC17 news, in one weekend, five Missouri cities received reports of strange phone purchases at Wal-Mart stores. All reports have been reported to the FBI, yet all suspects were released. Another man was interrogated by the police in Ava, Missouri when residents reported that he had left his cell phone in a Wal-Mart bathroom, which they considered “suspicious”.“While speaking with Walmart employees, the subject who left the phone returned to the store to get it,” the Ava Police Department posted on Facebook.“Officers spoke with the male subject, who was of Middle Eastern descent, and asked for identification, which was provided,” the police added. The man was also let go.Sherriff Merritt has justified the reports by saying that the suspects had an “accent” and were involved in activities that allegedly made others nervous and in fear of a possible terrorist act. read more

Ban convenes meeting to resolve border row between Gabon Equatorial Guinea

11 June 2008Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon today opened a high-level meeting between Equatorial Guinea and Gabon to launch the next phase of the mediation process aimed at resolving a border dispute between the African neighbours. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon today opened a high-level meeting between Equatorial Guinea and Gabon to launch the next phase of the mediation process aimed at resolving a border dispute between the African neighbours. Today’s meeting, held at United Nations Headquarters in New York, is dedicated to the adoption of a formal framework for the mediation process, according to a statement issued by Mr. Ban’s spokesperson. The maritime dispute between Equatorial Guinea and Gabon, which emerged in 2003, centres on an island which has oil resources. The two countries have agreed to exploit the area jointly until the dispute is resolved. In his remarks to today’s meeting, Mr. Ban said the presence of two senior delegations “underscores the commitment of your two neighbouring States to pursue peacefully the settlement” of the dispute. He said he welcomed the assurances given by both Gabonese President Omar Bongo Ondimba and Equatorial Guinea’s President Teodoro Obiang Nguema Mbassago to a UN mission in April that they will reach a solution either through negotiated settlement or by adjudication by the International Court of Justice (ICJ). But he also noted that “only modest progress” has been achieved since the UN began its mediation efforts in 2003. Mr. Ban added that he will soon appoint a Special Adviser and Mediator to assist the process. read more

Reinhard Grindel feels sorry for deserted Ozil

first_imgGerman Football Federation (DFB) president Reinhard Grindel has admitted that he could have taken a better approach as regards to the situation surrounding Mesut Ozil.Ozil was widely criticized for posing for a picture with the president of Turkey Recep Tayipp Erdogan. After Germany’s poor outing at the just concluded FIFA World Cup in Russia, the bulk of the blame was laid at Ozil’s feet by the fans, media and former German internationals.Ozil subsequently announced his retirement from international football and Grindel now concedes he could have dealt with the situation in a different manner.“Regarding the racist attacks, I could have taken a clearer position at some points and stood by Mesut Ozil,” Grindel told Bild, according to SportsKeeda.“I should have been clear with my words. Such attacks are completely unacceptable.

For me, it was obvious that we win together and lose together.“To make an individual player responsible for our exit would be absurd.”Grindel sought to emphasize that he was unhappy with Ozil for not publicly responding to the Erdogan photo controversy in a similar manner to his team-mate.“After the photos with President Erdogan, Ilkay Gundogan clearly and understandably made a statement,” he said.“I would have liked the same from Ozil, because I know from conversations with fans that they too had questions on the matter.last_img read more

We thought it might be a tight game and it ended up being exactly that.“We are slowly but surely making sense of it and remodeling the mental side of the game with the players and reminding them, not just of their ability levels, but of the basics. You have to do the basics well and I think everyone outside the top six has to do that.“Three of the last four [games], we’ve looked more like ourselves. We haven’t got the results, but we’ve looked more like ourselves, and that was on show again today.”last_img read more

American Airlines drops charter flights for Dolphins other teams

first_imgMIAMI INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT, FLA. (WSVN) – According to Forbes magazine, American Airlines has announced that they will no longer provide chartered flights for six NFL teams, including the Miami Dolphins.Other teams to be dropped include the Arizona Cardinals, the Baltimore Ravens, the Indianapolis Colts, the Jacksonville Jaguars and the Pittsburgh Steelers, during the 2017-2018 season.Forbes said the company decided to end the agreements due to a sufficient lack of aircraft. “After careful evaluation, we are reducing the number of charter operations for 2017 to ensure we have the right aircraft available for our passenger operation,” said American spokeswoman Lakeesha Brown, according to Forbes.Forbes said American Airlines will continue to transport the Carolina Panthers, the Dallas Cowboys and the Philadelphia Eagles.It’s unknown why American Airlines chose these particular teams, but for the three teams that will still receive chartered flights, Forbes speculates that the high amount of activity American Airlines receives in the teams’ home towns may have influenced the decision in keeping them onboard.Copyright 2019 Sunbeam Television Corp.
