When broken down according to the size of company, it was large-cap businesses that had the highest weighting of female board members, with 37.7% on supervisory boards and 25.8% on management boards, the data showed. The proportion of women in leadership positions at companies listed in Sweden ticked higher once more this year – a development AP2’s chief executive said showed progress was being made without laws forcing the change.AP2, one of Sweden’s five buffer funds for its state pension system, reported in its 2018 corporate management gender diversity “Kvinnoindex” (women index) that 33.9% of supervisory board members at companies listed on Nasdaq Stockholm were women, up from 32.2% in the previous year’s report.Women were less represented on management boards at 23.7%, but this figure was also higher than 2017’s 21.7%, according to the index.Eva Halvarsson, chief executive of the Gothenburg-based fund, said: “I think this shows that nomination committees and companies, without legislation, are on the right track towards achieving equality on boards and management teams.”last_img read more

The lack of football is expected to have an impact on countless clubs across Europe and could lead to pressure to sell when the transfer window re-opens, but United are in no such position having announced they will pay all staff using club funds. Speaking to Sky Sports, Solskjaer spoke of how United – “one of the biggest” clubs – must be ready to use their financial prowess to pounce on potential deals when the market opens. “Football is going to get back to normality at one point, and it’s very important we’re ready when that happens,” the manager said. “We want to be the best at everything, and of course now is a chance to spend more time, you discuss players, discuss plans, we’ve evaluated what we need, of course with the coaching staff we’ve looked at games, evaluated games, discussing on video calls like this Loading… center_img Promoted ContentCouples Who Celebrated Their Union In A Unique, Unforgettable WayEver Thought Of Sleeping Next To Celebs?

They continued to push constantly but Biaka and the sturdy Indian defenders averted the danger.Givson and Ridge were looking forward to hurling the opening goal from the counter-attacking opportunities but they could hardly find any hole to breach the Malaysian defense.Finally, the Malaysia striker Muhd Najmudin slotted their opening goal in the 26th minute to hand his team an advantage against the Indians.Bibiano Fernandes opted for a couple of change in quick succession and introduced Sailo and Manish at the expenses of Givson and Gurkirat respectively before the boys headed to the changing room with a one-goal deficit to the Malaysians.Changing over, Bibiano’s boys started with great intensity and Ridge, on the turn of the game, hit the side-netting two minutes into the game.India earned a free-kick in the 55th minute but Bekey failed to keep it within the frame.

JOHN’S, Antigua – Fresh from the Under 17 Regional Title, Trinidad and Tobago are ready to defend their title in the U19 three-day tournament, set to start in St Kitts, next Monday (July 24). Guyana will also defend their 50-over title, with that format beginning on Tuesday, August 15.The three-day competition will have the teams from the six territories, while in the 50-over competition, the ICC Americas will field a team for a group of seven tournament.Four venues will be used over the next six weeks by host country St Kitts, to effectively host both formats, with competition scheduled to end, Monday, August 28.The three-day format of this tournament will see the addition of two rounds for a total of five, as opposed to the three-round format used in previous years.Following the Windies win in the Under 19 World Cup in Bangladesh last year, the team is gearing up for the World Cup Championships in New Zealand next year. Rawl Lewis, the officer in charge of youth development at Cricket West Indies notes this tournament as an important part of the calendar of events.“The Under 19 tournament is an integral part of the development of cricket in the West Indies. It is the final stage before first class cricket and many of our top players hone their skills here.”Fast-bowler Alzarri Joseph, one of the young and upcoming players on the Windies senior team is a prime example of this.Shimron Hetmeyer, former captain of the Under 19 team who secured the championship trophy last year, has also featured at the top of the order for the Windies test team as of late.Dennis Phillip, president of the St Kitts Cricket Association says that preparations are well underway and venues would have been ready for final inspection yesterday.MATCH SCHEDULEThree DayROUND 1 July 24th-26thTrinidad & Tobago v Windward Islands-ConareeLeeward Islands v Guyana-VerchildsBarbados v Jamaica -St. PaulsROUND 2 July 28th-30thGuyana v Trinidad & Tobago -St. PaulsJamaica v Windward Islands-VerchildsLeeward Islands v Barbados -MolineuxROUND 3 Aug 01st-03rdTrinidad & Tobago v Jamaica -MolineuxGuyana v Barbados -VerchildsLeeward Islands v Windward Islands -St. PaulsROUND 4 Aug 06th-08thBarbados v Trinidad & Tobago-MolineuxLeeward Islands v Jamaica -Warner ParkWindward Islands v Guyana -St. PaulsROUND 5 Aug 10th-12thLeeward Islands v Trinidad & Tobago -VerchildsBarbados v Windward Islands -St. PaulsJamaica v Guyana -ConareeONE- DayROUND 1 Aug 15thICC Americas v Guyana -VerchildsLeeward Islands v Trinidad & Tobago -MolineuxWindward Islands v Jamaica -ConareeROUND 2 Aug 17thBarbados v Trinidad & Tobago -ConareeJamaica v ICC Americas -St. PaulsLeeward Islands v Windward Islands -MolineuxROUND 3 Aug 19thGuyana v Jamaica -MolineuxWindward Islands v Barbados -VerchildsLeeward Islands v ICC Americas -ConareeROUND 4 Aug 22ndWindward Islands v Trinidad & Tobago -MolineuxLeeward Islands v Guyana -St. PaulsICC Americas v Barbados -ConareeROUND 5 Aug 24thLeeward Islands v Jamaica -VerchildsTrinidad & Tobago v ICC Americas -MolineuxBarbados v Guyana -ConareeROUND 6 Aug 26thICC Americas v Windward Islands -MolineuxJamaica v Barbados -Warner ParkGuyana v Trinidad & Tobago-ConareeROUND 7 Aug 28thLeeward Islands v Barbados -ConareeWindward Islands v Guyana -Warner ParkTrinidad & Tobago v Jamaica -Molineuxlast_img read more

His crumpled car was spitting flames as he drove to the garage. He retired from the race without completing a lap. He finished last in the 40-car field. “Not really sure a whole lot what to say there about our first lap, first corner,” he said. “Pretty embarrassing for myself, our team, our crew guys. I feel awful for them. They put a lot of hard work into getting our cars ready.” Harvick emerged from his car in victory lane wearing a black face mask — what could become NASCAR’s new normal.NASCAR chose the oldest speedway on the Cup circuit as the safest place to restart its season after eight events were postponed amid the pandemic.

He was the oldest driver in the field.This was the first of 20 races across seven Southern states between now and June 21. Darlington will host two more NASCAR races over the next three days.

Bowman finished second, followed by Kurt Busch, Chase Elliott and Denny Hamlin. Harvick is the only driver to finish in the top 10 in each of the Cup Series’ five races this season. He made the series’ resumption look like a Sunday drive in what surely will go down as one of the strangest races in NASCAR history. Masks, social distancing, remote broadcasting and a fan-free speedway were among the most noticeable differences in the return. 5:50 p.m.A caution has been called to remove a sticky sponsorship sign that came loose when Kyle Busch scraped the wall while riding the high line at Darlington Raceway. After Busch rubbed the Blue-Emu sign, it started peeling off the outside wall. A portion of it stuck to Denny Hamlin’s grill and another attached to Tyler Reddick’s front fender.It was a weird scene, even for NASCAR, and arguably as odd as racing without fans and with masks and social-distancing mandates. Blue-Emu, you might recall, is the sponsor that fired Bubba Wallace for rage-quitting during an iRacing event in which the topical pain reliever was sponsoring the driver. Drivers, crews and officials wore face masks during pre-race ceremonies, which were performed remotely. The Fox Sports booth, featuring Mike Joy and four-time champion Jeff Gordon, also was being broadcast remotely from Charlotte, North Carolina. Driver Clint Bowyer wore a mask during a pre-race TV interview.

first_img Facebook Twitter Google+ After No. 27 Syracuse’s final home match this season, Sofya Golubovskaya walked off the court with tears in her eyes. She cried neither because it was Senior Day for her doubles partner nor because her first collegiate season was almost over.She cried because she had a bad match.In a day filled with emotions, SU’s only freshman was frustrated with herself after her match went unfinished at 4-6, 6-2, 1-4. She walked off the courts at Drumlins Country Club and declined to talk to the media.But almost instantly, her teammates were there to comfort her.“I’ve had a lot of struggles this year,” Golubovskaya said, “but now I have a team to help me, and I love it.”AdvertisementThis is placeholder textGolubovskaya, a native of Moscow, came to Syracuse for the first time on Jan. 10. In more than three months, she has dealt with a multitude of adjustments. One of her biggest culture shocks was being a part of a team rather than playing as an individual, Golubovskaya said. It was new to her. A team, an aspect of tennis she once questioned, has driven her to improve her game as a regular at third singles for the Orange.For all of her life before arriving at SU, Golubovskaya competed alone in tournaments in Russia and Europe. Playing on a team was a concept she didn’t understand.“Tennis (is) not a team sport,” Golubovskaya said. “It was really new for me. I wasn’t ready at first.”A couple of weeks into Golubovskaya’s transition, junior Gabriela Knutson said the freshman was hesitant to bond with her new team. During team practices, SU works on cheering for teammates at matches, mostly during changeovers and in between points. That was something Golubovskaya had to get used to.“The first day here she didn’t cheer (with us) at all,” Knutson said. “It was like she didn’t understand what was going on.”One thing that helped her was that three of her seven teammates speak Russian. Anna Shkudun, Golubovskaya’s doubles partner, and Libi Mesh speak Russian, and Maria Tritou can hold a conversation in Russian from time to time, Golubovskaya said. Interactions with them helped Golubovskaya forget about the language barriers in her new life.To ease Golubovskaya’s adjustment, SU head coach Younes Limam wanted to mimic some of the tactics he used with then-freshman Miranda Ramirez last season. Limam set up biweekly meetings with Golubovskaya and associate head coach Shelley George.The meetings focused on her biggest challenges. Of the wide range of acclimations, Limam pointed toward understanding her coaches, teammates and professors as some of the toughest. At times, Golubovskaya sought advice during those encounters, while other times she asked for favors such as getting a ride to the mall, she said.Most of the season, Golubovskaya played third singles behind Knutson and Ramirez. During a pivotal three-match stretch against ranked teams, Golubovskaya won three-straight matches against then-No. 44 Clemson, then-No. 16 Wake Forest and then-No. 48 Louisville.This is the first season Golubovskaya has worried about playing teams and not just individuals. She used to only rely on herself to reach her goals. Now, Golubovskaya has seven other players on her side.“All my life I was just taking care of myself and nobody else,” Golubovskaya said, “Now that I’m here, I see that my teammates can help me in life.” Comments Published on April 30, 2018 at 10:58 pm Contact KJ: | @KJEdelmanlast_img read more

first_imgTrump’s draft executive order targets employment and investment visas Although there are no specific details, the order seems to indicate changes may be made to the current H-1B program for professional workers in “specialty occupations” (like engineers working in the tech industry), including further restricting visas to certain professional fields or occupations and increasing H-1B employee eligibility requirements, based on an undefined “merit-based system.”Similarly, the proposal calls for reforming the E-2 Treaty Investor visa system which may result in the restriction of the type of businesses or increased investments amounts which would be required under the program. The order also calls for performing site visits for all approved L-1 worker visas.The draft order also targets the Practical Training (OPT) and Curricular Practical Training (CPT) work permit programs for graduated F-1 students, which may be eliminated or curtailed. It also proposes changes which may restrict or reduce visas for the Exchange Visitor (J-1) work-and study- programs.The proposal would likely eliminate the dual Visa Bulletin instituted in 2015 by the Obama administration which allows certain Immigrants in lawful immigration status in the U.S. to adjust status to Residency early.As feared, this is another signal big changes could be coming for all areas of immigration. However, it’s likely that any policy changes will be for future applicants and may not affect those who are currently hold the employment or investment visa status. For instance, if the H-1B visa becomes restricted to only certain “specialty occupations,” those who are currently holding H-1B visas, who would not qualify under the new policy, would not lose their current visa, and would likely be allowed to continue working until the visa ends, but would not be able to renew it.With the possibility of these changes, international students are advised to concentrate their education in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) fields. These are occupations in high demand and may not have enough U.S. workers to fill. Therefore, they are likely the fields which will receive the most consideration in future Trump policy changes, to keep America’s IT industry going. Other college degree programs in liberal arts, media, graphic design, general business, etc, may no longer be eligible for U.S. work visas in the future. While many Immigrants, Americans and nations around the world are still reeling from Trump’s executive action against nationals of certain countries, yet another proposed Immigration related Executive Order has been leaked to the press.last_img read more
