The scenarios that Espanyol handles if LaLiga does not return

first_imgAnother framework for action being studied at Espanyol to reduce costs in the absence of income is the provisional cancellation of some providers of the entity, or the postponement of certain payments, provided that it is totally justified by the current exceptional situation.At Espanyol they hope to adopt a firm decision next week, not without first having somehow with LaLiga general recommendations, which could arrive in the next few hours, although they understand at the RCDE Stadium that there are as many economic situations right now as there are professional clubs in trouble.All these hypothetical measures are aimed at a situation in which LaLiga did not resume, which would be the most catastrophic economically. It is because of that It is also studying how to make decisions that, in the event that the 11 days are finally disputed that have been left in the air, they can be reversible. In phase of a deep economic study is Espanyol, who is dedicating this week to consider what decisions to take preventively in case, finally, LaLiga does not resume and a high percentage (between 25 and 30 percent) of expected income in games as important as television rights, sponsors or ‘ticketing’.So that such a brutal impact does not catch them off guard, the club shuffles various scenarios. A priori, in none of them will the workforce be affected by the measures. Nevertheless, Yes, the first team can be damaged. The PericosOnline portal published this Wednesday that Espanyol would have already communicated to the players their intention to compete an ERTE (Temporary Employment Regulation File). According to sources from the entity to AS, this decision is contemplated but not taken, and for that reason the captains could have been tested in that sense.Not surprisingly, the salary of footballers as such is a tiny part of what they receive, hence Another scenario that is more likely to be considered is that of a reduction in chips that would naturally be agreed between the sports staff and the company, outside the channels of what is properly an ERTE.last_img read more

GTT still awaiting 4G spectrum – CEO

first_imgTwo years later– optimistic of competition in liberalised sectorDespite reports circulating in 2016 that Government had granted GTT approval for a 4G spectrum, the company is still awaiting this approval in order to bring faster internet service to its customers.This is according to GTT Chief Executive Officer Justin Nedd, who communicated this news during a press conference on Monday at the Herdmanston Lodge.Nedd was optimistic of the changes liberalisation will bring, and has said GTT has plans of its own to upgrade services.“Competition is good! Competition in the space of a fair and level playing field is absolutely great for customers and operators. It makes operators like GTT reallyGTT CEO, Justin Neddlook and ensure (there is in operation) an operation focused on the customer,” Nedd has declared.“I would say GTT has been moving in that space. We’ve upgraded the mobile network to 3G. We’re awaiting spectrum for 4G. We’ve rolled out Fibre to the Home to more than 50,000 homes. We’re working on our customer experience.”It is understood that, as at August, the company has expended US$20 million on its Fibre to the Home (FTTH) project roll out. And the capital expenditure price tag is said to be steadily rising.Level playing fieldThe CEO, meanwhile, noted the importance of a level playing field when it comes to the legislative framework. He, however, observed that for some time now, operators have not been playing by the same rules.“We would expect the same tax structure and regulations for the players. I think that’s very fair. GTT has been here for over 20 years, and I believe that we have a good relationship with the customers. And we will continue to grow thatPublic Telecommunications Minister Cathy Hughesrelationship. But in order to really work with the customer and make us prosper, we need solid equitable regulation,” Nedd explained.This framework, according to Nedd, must also include fairness when it comes to paying taxes. While he stressed that he did not mean the taxes were unfair, he pointed out the importance of companies shouldering their fair share of the tax burden.“What we want is: if we are paying one tax rate, then all the players in the sector should pay the same. And that is something every business would want in their industry… The sector is already liberalised, it’s just that some people don’t play by the same rules,” he said.It is understood that negotiations with GTT and the Public Telecommunications Ministry to lift the monopoly will conclude by year end. In January of 2018, it was reported that negotiations with the GTT and the Ministry to address the lifting of the monopoly were effective.These negotiations began in 2016, when the intention of ending the 26-year-old monopoly on the fixed line market was discussed. Liberalisation, once in place, would ensure there is fair competition and regulation among all enterprises in the business sector. It is, however, heavily dependent on the settlement of a US$44 million tax claim against GTT.Atlantic Tele Network, GTT’s parent company, made mention of this in its quarterly filings to the United States Securities and Exchange Commission, including a sum of US$5 million for an adverse decision against the telecoms giant.“GTT is also involved in several legal claims regarding its tax filings with the Guyana Revenue Authority, dating back to 1991 and regarding the deductibility of intercompany advisory fees as well as other tax assessments,” the report had stated.“The company maintains that any liability GTT might be found to have with respect to the disputed tax assessments, totalling $44.1 million, would be offset in part by the amounts necessary to ensure that GTT’s return on investment was no less than 15 per cent per annum for the relevant periods. The company believes that some adverse outcome is probable, and has accordingly accrued $5.0 million as of June 30, 2018 for these matters.”last_img read more

Rio Athletes Village opens its doors

first_imgJuly 24, 2016 COMMENT SHARE athletics Rio 2016Oltmans complains lack of furnishing at Olympic Village Published on RELATED center_img SHARE SHARE EMAIL null Freestyle wrestler Narsingh Yadav fails dope test Ready or not, the Rio Olympics are opening their doors.The Games begin in just over two weeks, but the Athletes Village opens officially today, meaning 10,500 athletes and another 7,000 staff members will start trickling into the luxurious layout, with the pace picking up daily until the August 5 opening ceremony at the Maracana Stadium.The 31-building compound should pamper the world’s best.It’s set among tennis courts, soccer fields, seven swimming pools —— with mountains and the sea as a backdrop —— and topped off by a massive dining-kitchen compound that’s as large as three football fields.“I want to help all the athletes have a wonderful welcome to Brazil,” said Priscilla Antonello, a residence center deputy manager whose job is to help athletes find their accommodations.Will she be star-struck by so many Olympians?“I couldn’t be in this job if I behaved like that,” she replied yesterday, standing on the 13th floor of one of buildings, gazing out over cycling paths, bubbling fountains and lots of green.She already knows which countries will be where, but she’s not allowed to say.Some delegations had already arrived yesterday, easy to spot with banners or flags hanging off the sides of buildings.Slovenia had the best banner. In green and white it says: .“I Feel sLOVEenia.” The LOVE portion was set off in white type, making sure the message got across.Another read: “All for Denmark.”Banners or flags from Canada, Britain, Portugal, Finland and Sweden were among those spotted. A tiny red and yellow Chinese flag was pinned near the top of one of the compounds.Everything about the village is massive, though fairly standard for recent Summer Olympics.Organizers say the compound has 10,160 rooms; 18,000 beds; seven laundries; an enormous, hospital—like clinic; a massive gym.In addition, organisers are providing 450,000 condoms, three times more than London did four years ago. Among them will be 100,000 female condoms.Organisers said this is to encourage safe sex. Many had considered that increased supply to be due to Brazil’s outbreak of the Zika virus, which has been linked to birth defects. COMMENTSlast_img read more

How much money WWE could lose by cancelling Crown Jewel in Saudi Arabia

first_imgAdvertisementDespite the recent ongoings that involved the killing of Washington Post journalist and Saudi national, Jamal Khashoggi in Turkey earlier this month, WWE looks set to go ahead with Crown Jewel in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia on November 2.WWE has remained silent in the aftermath of Khashoggi’s reported murder and instead, it seems highly likely that the green signal will be given for the event rather than WWE taking the risk of incurring a huge financial catastrophe.In case you didn’t know, WWE joined forces with Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman on his Saudi Vision Plan 2030 earlier this year and as per the deal, multiple events and shows will be hosted in the Middle East for the next 10 years. If Crown Jewel was to be cancelled then WWE will be hit with a massive loss of $12-16 million in operating income. However, the PPV appears to be headed in the desired direction after last week’s episodes of Monday Night RAW and SmackDown 1000 respectively.Seth Rollins, Dolph Ziggler, The Miz and Rey Mysterio all punched their tickets to the WWE World Cup at Crown Jewel after successfully registering victories in singles competitions last week and completed the playing field for the eight-man tournament.The field has been rounded out for the #WWEWorldCup Tournament at #WWECrownJewel!— WWE (@WWE) October 17, 2018Similarly, Roman Reigns will defend his Universal Championship against Braun Strowman and Brock Lesnar while Daniel Bryan will lock horns with AJ Styles for the WWE Championship.

How To Rehearse For A Job Interview

first_imgPractice makes perfect, particularly when it comes to the job interview. Nobody wants their responses to sound canned during an interview, but they also don’t want to fumble over questions, which is why career experts say it’s important to rehearse ahead of time. That doesn’t mean you have to memorize your answers to every imaginable interview question, but you do want to be able to talk about your skills and work experience without tripping up.“Your goal isn’t to develop pat, ready answers to every question,” says Sue Campbell, owner of, a career strategist company. “The goal in doing mock interviews is to raise your confidence level, to familiarize you to the interview process, and to develop an ease that will enable you to manage this type of situation to the best of your abilities so that you and what you bring to the table can really shine.”According to career experts the first step in practicing for a job interview is to find someone to rehearse with. Your spouse or friends are options, but ideally you want to use someone in your professional network who has knowledge about the type of position you are interviewing for. You also want someone that will give you unbiased, constructive criticism. “You want to rehearse with someone who will give you objective feedback about how you are coming across and can give you pointers on things you need to work on,” says Pamela Skillings, co-founder of Skillful Communications. If you can’t find someone to practice with, career experts say to record yourself on your computer, tablet or smartphone to identify any aspects of your behavior, verbal skills and body language that need improvement. If you don’t want to record yourself, at the very least, practice in front of a mirror.How you practice interviewing also matters. According to career experts you want to make it as real as possible, which means you should dress as if you were going on the interview and act as if the person interviewing you is the real deal. Campbell suggests holding the mock interviews in an unfamiliar place at a preset time. “You need to come prepared with resume and references, and to negotiate salary, if necessary. Whatever you find to be the most difficult aspects of an interviewer situation should be touched on during the mock interview,” she says.While there isn’t a set rule in terms of how many mock interviews you have to hold, career experts say it’s a good idea to practice until you reach your comfort level. Don’t overdo it, even if you have a big interview coming up. Yes, you want to prepare, but you also don’t want to come off too polished or disingenuous.Once your mock interview is over, Campbell says to have your “interviewer” provide feedback on everything from whether or not you appeared nervous to whether or not you dressed appropriately. Since some initial interviews are conducted over the phone, Campbell says to hold at least one mock interview via phone.If you don’t or can’t rehearse for an upcoming interview, another way to prepare is to network with people that are doing the type of job you want and asking them for a few minutes of their time, whether it’s a lunch date or a quick meeting over a cup over coffee. By meeting with people in a similar position or at a company you would like to work at, you can gleam information about the skills, experience and training they look for in potential candidates, says Campbell.Before you start practicing, it’s a good idea to scour the Internet to come up with a list of interview questions. Websites like Glassdoor provide sample interview questions from a broad range of companies. Many companies also put up examples of the type of interview questions they ask, making it extremely easy for job seekers to prepare. Another option, according to Susan Ruhl, a managing partner at OI Partners – Innovative Career Consulting in Denver is to think of three to five stories from each of your past jobs about challenges you’ve faced, actions you took to overcome those challenges and the result of those actions. “When someone asks you on a behavioral interview tell me about a time you didn’t meet a deadline, you’ll have stories in your head,” says Ruhl. “You won’t struggle to find the story to tell.”last_img read more
