Leeds looking to land winger, reveals Redfearn

first_imgLeeds United manager Neil Redfearn has revealed that the Championship club are looking to bring in a winger.The new Elland Road boss believes that the squad is currently lacking pace and that a new wide man is required to bolster his attacking options.“We haven’t really got any genuine wingers within the squad. The width comes from full-back areas, so whether it’s a 4-3-3 or a diamond, the width seems to come from the full-back areas,” Redfearn told LUTV.“We’ve got good full-backs so it can be done like that, but it’s nice to have your plan B. It might bring a change where you have some genuine width with a natural attacking wide player.“It’s maybe something that we’ll look at.” 1 Leeds United manager Neil Redfearn last_img read more

BPO giant in SA – more to follow

first_img31 December 2007The decision by US-based business process outsourcing (BPO) giant TeleTech to establish a facility outside Cape Town is proof that the country’s marketing campaign to attract new foreign investment is a success, says the International Marketing Council of South Africa (IMC).IMC chief executive Yvonne Johnston says TeleTech’s decision will stimulate further global interest in the country’s advantages in the fields of BPO and call centres.“The BPO industry is poised for significant growth in the near future and South Africa is an ideal location to set up base,” Johnston said in a statement following TeleTech’s announcement in November.“We deliver competitive advantages compared with other countries in terms of our geographic location and time zone, the quality of our infrastructure, our human resources and the widespread usage of English.”The IMC, the custodian of Brand South Africa, is responsible for promoting the country as a preferred trade and investment destination.Construction of the new TeleTech facility at the Old Match Factory in Salt River, Cape Town, kicked off in late November with a sod-turning ceremony attended by Deputy President Phumzile Mlambo-Ngcuka and Trade and Industry Minister Mandisi Mpahlwa.Colorado-based TeleTech Holdings is the first multinational company to benefit from a new incentive plan launched by the Department of Trade and Industry (DTI), which has identified the BPO sector as a major future source of employment.“BPO is critical to our economic development strategy, and we see TeleTech as an anchor company for this new industry,” Mpahlwa said at the ceremony.SA a ‘high quality location’TeleTech has already announced that it plans a number of new facilities in South Africa, which will create thousands of new jobs in the BPO industry. The company already employs more than 50 000 people in 18 countries, and Cape Town is its first base on the African continent.“Africa’s future is in services, and South Africa is a virtually untapped market for offshore BPO,” TeleTech Africa general manager Craig Reines said in a statement. “We are attracted by the country’s excellent infrastructure, talented and growing labour pool, and the widespread use of English.“South Africa is a high quality location linking Africa into the global BPO supply chain.”Johnston said the TeleTech investment was a high-profile example of the success of the trade and investment missions jointly organised by the IMC and the DTI.“For the past five years we have conducted at least one mission a year – twice to the USA, Europe and the UK, and in October this year we went to India for the first time,” Johnston said. “We use these missions to inform the business communities in these countries about opportunities and prospects for trade and investment and to connect them with local contacts.“I am optimistic that we will see an increasing flow of trade and investment from companies that have come to know South Africa better through these visits.”SAinfo reporter Want to use this article in your publication or on your website?See: Using SAinfo materiallast_img read more

The Truth About Why Yahoo’s CEO Got Fired

first_imgTop Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting A Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai… dan frommer What’s the takeaway from Yahoo’s recent CEO fiasco? Don’t lie on your corporate bio, for one, and make sure no one else has lied on your behalf. But the real lesson has nothing to do with falsified credentials.Sure, the world will remember Scott Thompson as the Yahoo CEO who got fired over a fake computer science degree, but the context is crucial: A battle with Yahoo shareholder Dan Loeb for control of the company. If not for Loeb, we may never have found out about Thompson’s juiced resume, and he might still be CEO. The real lesson is: Beware the activist investor.Four months had passed since Thompson’s appointment as Yahoo CEO, and no one had questioned his education. His relevant experience at PayPal? Sure, at first. But not his computer science degree. In fact, many of us actually thought that especially qualified him for the Yahoo job.In hindsight, Yahoo obviously should have investigated Thompson’s background more thoroughly. (And shame on us in the press for missing this one!) But even if Yahoo had found the discrepancy after Thompson was named CEO, it might have quietly corrected the mistake and hoped no one noticed.It is possible to survive a scandal over a college degree you wish you’d earned but didn’t. When RadioShack CEO David Edmondson resigned in 2006 after a newspaper reported that his two supposed degrees were invented and that he was facing a trial for DUI charges, the company said its board had known about “some, but definitely not all” of the issues. (I suppose it makes a difference which ones.) But former Bausch & Lomb CEO Ronald Zarrella stayed around for years after he was busted for falsely claiming an MBA from New York University.In this case, there was no pushing anything under the rug. it was Loeb himself who outed Thompson, in a letter to Yahoo’s board that he made public in a press release.“According to the Yahoo! Form 10-K/A, filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on April 27, 2012, newly-hired Chief Executive Officer, Scott Thompson, ‘holds a Bachelor’s degree in accounting and computer science’ from Stonehill College,” it read. “A rudimentary Google search reveals a Stonehill College alumni announcement stating that Mr. Thompson’s degree is in accounting only.” Whoops.Did Loeb actually care about Thompson’s level of educational attainment? Probably not. This was a power play, pure and simple. And it worked. (Note that Loeb’s activist website, ValueYahoo, is already taken down.) If Loeb hadn’t hit the jackpot with the degree accusation – or if Thompson and Yahoo successfully brushed it off – he would have come back, again and again, until either he or his adversary crumbled.But with the mess Yahoo is in – even after Thompson’s four months on the job – Loeb finally had the mob on his side. And now he’s on top.

first_imgAdvertisement AdvertisementWBC and WBA middleweight champion Saul ‘Canelo’ Alvarez is all set to fight IBF middleweight champion Daniel Jacobs in a unification bout at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas on May 4th which is a Cinco De Mayo weekend.The fight was announced last week by Oscar De La Hoya and Eddie Hearn on Social Media. This is the fight most boxing fans have wanted to see as Canelo is coming off of a win against former middleweight kingpin Gennady Golovkin in September last year and Jacobs beat Serhiy Derevyachenko last October to capture the vacant IBF middleweight title.Daniel Jacobs went toe-to-toe with Gennady Golovkin back in March of 2017 when he lost the fight via a very close decision, although many boxing fans believed Jacobs won that fight.For this mega fight, the American is set to make a career-high ₹107 crore, according to LA Times.[Sources familiar with the deal have indicated that Jacobs stands to collect as much as $15 million for the Alvarez fight, and a minimum of $4 million in his next two fights should he lose to Alvarez.“If [Jacobs] wins or gets a draw, it’s big, big money for those next fights,” one individual familiar with the deal but unauthorized to comment publicly on it told The Times.]This is a way more money then he made for his last two big fights on HBO.
