Barclays and BPE were both unavailable for comment last night.It is understood BPE will also shake up its management structure by appointing Guillaume Jacqueau, a managing director in Paris, as its new boss. He will also replace Gonzague de Blignières as head of its Paris office.This represents a major shift from the “three-pronged” leadership structure previously in place, with Gonzague de Blignières, Peter Hammermann and Paul Goodson in charge. Owen Clarke, a managing director in London, will be named chief investment officer.The BPE acquisition follows a similar proposal earlier this week by Lloyds Banking Group to separate its private equity arm from the group.Bank of America Merrill Lynch and Citigroup have already completed similar deals.

My day off… Podcasting with Joe Marler

first_imgHarlequins and England loosehead Joe Marler has enjoyed talking himself in a new direction… “You know you are meant to make loads of careful analysis of decisions like this and scratch your chin and go into it. But actually, you definitely know straightaway. I just went ‘Yep!’”Marler offers his side of things at this point: “Um, it wasn’t overly quick.“With the publisher, when I first met them, they had this vision, ‘Look, we want you to write a book, and we’d love you to set up a podcast as well.’ And I was kinda like: I haven’t got a book. They said, ‘No no, we would like you to write one.’ Oh, okay.“Then they said ‘We’ll pay you this,’ and I said ‘Pardon?!’ “What if I write it and it’s a really s*** book? Do I have to pay this money back? They said, ‘No, you don’t have to pay it back’ and I went ‘Okay, fine yeah, I’ll happily write a book and do a podcast.’ Because it was something different.Special guest: Astronaut Tim Peake (Getty Images)“I guess I am at the point in my career now, where I’m 30. I’m not getting any younger. I’m clinging on for dear life on the pitch. And now it’s been dawning on me quite quickly that I need something else.“What next? If rugby stopped now, what else can I get my teeth into? Me and my wife have got a bit of a project we want to get stuck into and in order to do that we have to come up with some other streams to provide that.”Candidly, Marler says he is aware that so much has revolved around him, his needs, his schedule throughout his relationship with wife Daisy. In order for elite athletes to be, well, elite, sacrifices have to be made. Often that word ‘sacrifices’ actually means making many things about you. And so promoting a book and a podcast means the attention falls on the prop once again.But as the ticking clock of a career gets harder to ignore, Marler talks of the family dream: a coffee shop or café that sells infants’ clothes and toys. A nirvana for fatigue-fighting parents, you suspect.“We’ve had one of our episodes pulled by James Bond’s bosses”Compartmentalising is also something Marler believes he can be quite good at. It’s unlikely his two working worlds, of rugby and podcasting, can ever interfere with each other, because his three-hour commute to and from training offers him ample time to segue from thinking about one to the other.Channelling his inner Liam Neeson, he says of his rugby that he has “a particular set of skills – I can’t get much better to be honest, I’ve got a baseline”. Perhaps overly modest for someone who has played in a World Cup final and worn the red of the British & Irish Lions, but we take the point. He is saying that he has learnt where his strengths lie and how best to get the optimum out of himself. Nothing about his rugby is going to radically change now, so on his way back to home base he can muse over pod plans. “He’s a quick learner as well,” Fordyce adds of his co-host. “There will be points where I’ll say, ‘There’s a little thing that we can do here where you can do this or try doing this’. And he gives you a Joe look and nods his head. But then he’s doing it in the next episode without you having reminded him. I don’t want to blow smoke up his arse but I think he’s a bit of a podcast natural.” As it turns out, that sense of stumbling on a job that you then give your all presented itself in a novel way during lockdown. When home-schooling son Jasper, he found himself relishing preparing plans for the next day, getting a ruler out and designing tables on the page. Of course, the best-laid plans and all that, he found that the real challenge was corralling his son to the desk for prolonged periods.Their eyes meet…: Marler and Fordyce (Daniel Gould) Joe interjects with: “Podcast nause.”Every day is a school day, if you are willing to learn, and lessons can come from anywhere. Marler explains that Fordyce was too aggressive when he asked a stuntwoman straight up how much it would cost for them to set their arm alight – that’s too personal a question, say Marler. Fordyce concedes.Then there was the one episode that both men loved but that was lost to the world forever, as Fordyce explains: “We did an entire episode with someone, and it blew our minds, but because of the Official Secrets Act we’ve had to pull it. It’s been pulled.” Man on the mic: Marler recording a podcast (Daniel Gould) Sitting at a desk or in a van, staring into space, you can probably appreciate that. Because, hey, what the hell is a ‘penetration tester’?This article originally appeared in the December 2020 edition of Rugby World magazine.center_img The conversation doesn’t sit still either. Over the course of 40 minutes topics pop up, like the black market for buying dogs in Covid times, chicken sexing and being “accused by a knight of the realm of being the reason for losing a final,” in reference to Sir Clive Woodward being grumpy about Marler and Dan Cole not being stoney-faced in a pre-World Cup final press conference in Japan.Yet by his own admission, Marler used to find it hard opening up. Press events were seen as something of a duel. Fordyce has ghosted a number of athlete’s books – including cricketer Chris Gayle’s gloriously-named Six Machine – and feels that over time, when the big life questions arise, such people can open up. But in real life, isn’t it the most human thing to talk about the smaller things?Marler replies: “Yeah, definitely, but there’s also the other side of it where players then worry that if they do start talking about irrelevant or different things, they can be accused of not concentrating on the job.“Hang on, can’t there be an understanding that you can do both?”As a younger man, Marler says, he had his guard up with the media. The assumption being that whatever happened, the predisposition was to go for the negatives and the flashy headline. But after well-documented run-ins with the press and the rugby authorities, he soon decided that “if I’m always looking at this as ‘you’re all bad people,’ nothing will ever change, my outlook will never change”. And so he sought to talk with everyone he encounters on a ‘human level’ to see where they are coming from. Analysing his own early podcast performances, Marler has had back-and-forths with the team involved. Evidently, he tries to hone his craft. My day off… Podcasting with Joe MarlerTALKING EXCLUSIVELY rugby on a podcast would not float Joe Marler’s boat. Well, that’s putting it without colour. Ask the man himself if he’d considered starting a rugby pod and he says: “You know there are certain things you have to do, like taking the bins out. But if you do a podcast, I wanted to do a podcast that sort of made my d*** hard.”And like that, we are off and rolling. Yes, we can talk to the England and Harlequins loosehead prop about joining up with the national squad for the Autumn Nations Cup. Or the Premiership season. Or how his view of his own game has evolved over time. And some of those things do come up while chatting. He is very appreciative of what rugby has brought him in life.But it is clear the forward is throwing himself headlong at a podcast, The Joe Marler Show alongside Tom Fordyce, which is decidedly un-rugby.The premise? The pair interview folk from totally different walks of life and see what they can find out. Astronauts, zookeepers and psychopath experts have come in for questioning. Curiosity can take you to places you never thought possible, even if in that place you chat about animal poo or aliens.It’s not quite like the future co-hosts’ eyes met across a crowded room in Japan, but the seeds of this relationship were sown at the Rugby World Cup, when Marler was representing England on the field and Fordyce was working from the wings with BBC Radio 5 Live.Club colours: Marler in action with Harlequins (Getty Images)“I was 5 Live’s man in the England camp, which basically meant I’d have a succession of pleasant five-minute chats with three different players each day,” Fordyce says. “So, then Joe and I had a half-hour chat that covers all these topics, including the cast of Neighbours, or before he went to Japan whether he thought ramen was what the posher end of Quins’ support was called” – the old gag earns a theatrical eye-roll off Marler.“It was the best chat I had in Japan. Then Joe obviously wrote his book. The publisher was the same as the Peter Crouch book, which I also wrote (with Crouch), and we had done a podcast off the back of that. They asked me if I’d consider doing a pod with Joe. Hold on… Here Marler comes back in: “I can see your face, ‘Alright, these lads have come up with a plan… just made up bull****’. No, we did this. It was one of my favourites. And then, about two days after, Steve (Jones, from Crowd Network) said: ‘Bad news guys, you can’t hear that episode. It has been pulled by the Secret Service.’“That was a gutting one but at the same time it was quite cool because, well, we’ve had one of our episodes pulled by James Bond’s bosses.”Mutual repsect: With England boss Eddie Jones (Getty Images)At this stage, no one wants to overthink how things can evolve too far into the future (though the pair do joke about a roadshow with Marler’s Volkswagen Caravelle). Once they throw around ideas about the best people to talk to and formulate a plan, Fordyce explains, they just rattle in to chat with each other, see where it goes.For Marler, it is an exciting avenue to explore while he is still at the very sharp end of rugby. What a great excuse it is to meet interesting new people and learn things along the way, asking whatever comes to mind.

The suggestion will appear on an A5 insert for consumer press, including titles such as The Daily Telegraph, The Daily Mail, Woman and Home and Good Housekeeping. The campaign begins on 22 January.The approach has been developed by engagement marketing agency TDA. The insert is designed to look like a birthday card, and explains how people can set up a fundraising page at www.giveincelebration.org, which they can personalise by adding a message or photos. They can then use the website to invite friends and family to donate to Cancer Research UK, instead of giving presents for a birthday, wedding, anniversary or other special occasion.The insert’s message is: “Your birthday celebration could help someone survive cancer and be there for theirs.”Sarah Pickersgill, Senior Marketing Manager at Cancer Research UK, said: “Birthdays, weddings and anniversaries are times for celebration and for giving presents, but they also provide an opportunity to do something generous and thoughtful at the same time – contributing to the fight against cancer.

US ambassador launches unacceptable attack on Kosovo journalists

first_img News • Article 170 (1) Whoever, with the use of special equipment and without authorization, wiretaps or records a conversation or a statement not addressed to him or her or enables another person to have knowledge of a conversation or statement which was wiretapped or recorded without authorization shall be punished by a fine or by imprisonment of up to one year. News I trust that the IMC will exercise its responsibility in enforcing its Code of Conduct, and I leave it to legal authorities to assess whether or not the law was violated and what legal steps should follow. However, I believe it is beyond dispute that the journalists involved and the editors/publishers who authorized the reports, clearly violated the ethical and professional standards expected of journalists in a democratic state. March 1, 2011 – Updated on January 20, 2016 US ambassador launches unacceptable attack on Kosovo journalists Reporters Without Borders deplores US ambassador Christopher Dell’s open letter (see below) to Kosovo’s Independent Media Commission on 23 February criticising Express, Koha Ditore and Koha Vision TV for using blown-up photos of text messages on a smartphone screen to show that he provided the country’s new president with last-minute advice in parliament before a vote that only just secured him the presidency.It was clear from the photos that Dell was advising President Behgjet Pacolli’s aide, Esat Puskar, on how to proceed during a 45-minute break before a third and ultimately successful vote after Pacolli failed to be elected in the first two votes, which the opposition boycotted. If Pacolli had not won the crucial third vote, new parliamentary elections would have been necessary.“We strongly condemn the way Ambassador Dell demanded ‘in the name of their readers and viewers’ that Koha and Express’s journalists apologize for their behaviour and questioned their professional ethics,” Reporters Without Borders said. “We are also outraged by his insistence that they violated article 170 of the criminal code, under which anyone publishing wire tap conversations or messages not specifically addressed to them is liable to one year in jail.“The ambassador’s comments constitute unacceptable harassment of the Kosovar media, which are already harassed by their country’s own leaders and which should be able to count on more active support from a country that is generally appreciated for its commitment to the defence of media freedom.“The contacts between Kosovo’s future president and the ambassador of a very influential country during a crucial election and at a time of great deal of political tension were clearly a matter of public interest. Reporting them was not in any way illegal. The photos of the text messages visible on the mobile phone screen did not violate the ambassador’s privacy because, as he acknowledged, they were just about political matters. They did, on the other hand, provide legitimate support for the claims the journalists made in their articles.”The ambassador’s letter referred repeatedly to violations of privacy and interception of phone messages but the media just published photos of a mobile phone that were taken in a public place. It must have been obvious that there were journalists in the press gallery, which overlooks the seats occupied by diplomats and others. The messages were not intercepted electronically. No phone was tapped. The journalists just took advantage of someone’s negligence. That does not constitute misconduct.The ambassador cannot demand that Kosovo’s media respect principles that are not accepted in the United States, where similar news-gathering methods would be deemed to be in the public interest and where the information would have been published without sanction. In fact, the democratic principles to which he referred allow Kosovo’s media to freely investigate links between their politicians and foreign diplomats.Reporters Without Borders would rather see Dell speaking out more often against the constant political interference in the running of state media, notably within RTK, the discriminatory allocation of state and private-sector advertising, the unjustified lawsuits and prosecutions designed to snuff out independent journalism, the problems with broadcasting licences, the repeated tax inspections and other administrative abuses, and the lack of access to public information.This is a difficult time for the Kosovar press and Ambassador Dell’s open letter will just encourage the country’s politicians to file more complaints of their own to the Independent Media Commission and to bring more libel actions. If his complaint is not withdrawn, it will lead to more harassment of the Kosovar media, which the US government would presumably not welcome.See also RWB’s Kosovo report The behavior may also have been illegal, as Kosovo’s Criminal Code forbids the unauthorized interception of personal conversations and statements. The public – the readers and listeners of your news – deserve an apology. Members of the media have violated their own standards and the public trust. Three years after independence, your country should be able to rely upon a responsible, ethical, and professional media. I am disheartened that in spite of strong support and considerable investment of my government over more than ten years, some of your more popular outlets have yet to reach even a minimal level of professional accountability and responsibility commensurate with the positions of public responsibility they exercise.” August 18, 2017 Find out more Kosovo has codes of conduct for both print and broadcast media. These codes hold signatories responsible to the highest international journalistic standards, including privacy. Koha Ditore, Express, and KTV violated the spirit and intent of these codes when they intruded on personal communications. Their behavior was inexcusable. RSF_en KosovoEurope – Central Asia News Concern about investigative reporter’s disappearance in Serbia to go furthercenter_img Open Letter of Christopher Dell to the Independent Media Commission News Help by sharing this information Just as I have called on members of the government to embrace the highest standards of transparent and clean governance, I urge members of the media to hold themselves to these same standards and to the professional conduct that they agreed to when signing the Press Code of Conduct.

These outlets, including Koha Ditore, Express and KTV crossed the line in transmitting private communications that took place at the Assembly Hall on February 22, including an apparent phone call involving me. I am writing to members of the IMC regarding this unprofessional, unethical, and potentially illegal activity. I am not disturbed by the content of these communications, which reflect nothing more than routine efforts to gather information in a confused environment and purported comments relayed by third parties, including a perfectly respectable assertion that the political leaders of the country needed to make some decisions for themselves, but rather by the media’s apparently illegal act.

Children put at risk from dangerous prisoners

first_imgNewsBreaking newsChildren put at risk from dangerous prisonersBy admin – November 28, 2013 726 WhatsApp Facebook Advertisement Twitter Linkedincenter_img Print Email by Andrew CareySign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up andrewCHILDREN were put at risk of serious injury at Limerick court this week as 22 prisoners, some of whom were described as violent and psychiatric gang members, were held in custody as the Children’s Court was about to start.The danger to the young children was highlighted by Judge Eugene O’Kelly who said they would be hurt or seriously injured if the inadequate facilities at the Limerick Court buildings were not immediately addressed.He was speaking after the Tuesday afternoon sitting of the Children’s Court was delayed by a number of hours because of the the high number of adult cases listed for the morning session. 22 prisoners were still being held in the two cell holding area of the judicial buildings as juvenile detainees arrived for their cases.Judge O’Kelly said that for the second week in a row the inadequacies of the District Court building presented a significant danger to its occupants.“It is entirely inappropriate and unsuitable for juveniles and children coming before the court to see and experience this.”“It is dangerous and unsatisfactory that the volume of the work before the court is such that the sitting of the Children’s court is delayed and now distracted by the presence of these prisoners in a two-cell holding area”.“It won’t be long before a child gets hurt or a solicitor takes an action against the State for exposing children to such circumstances”.Stressing that his comments were not intended as criticism of the gardaí or the court staff, Judge O’Kelly told Sgt Donal Cronin that “the court gardaí are doing the best they can with the resources available”.He said that last week the holding area was accommodating 17 prisoners with gardaí trying to separate female prisoners from males behaving violently. We also had some handcuffed to railings. We had psychiatric prisoners, members of feuding gangs and all in the presence of some juvenile detainees.”Stating that he agreed with Judge O’Kelly’s comments, Sgt. Cronin said a multi-agency approach was needed to resolving the problem. He added that he would pass the judge’s sentiments “up the line”.As prisoners in the holding area continued to disrupt the court, Judge O’Kelly complained that this was happening every week.“There should be a separate court for children as they are currently being exposed to these scenes and held in overcrowded cells. It is entirely unacceptable and a child will get hurt or a solicitor may take an action against the State for exposing children to this.He called for a more suitable venue to be provided and said that The Court Service was “aware of the problem, but they didn’t seem to be doing anything about it”.During the same court sitting, legal aid defence solicitor Sarah Ryan expressed her grave concerns at the continued use of St Patrick’s Institution for the detention of young offenders between 18 and 21 years of age.When an 18-year-old defendant she was representing was remanded to St Patrick’s, she said it “is nothing more than a factory for criminals. They go in their as easily influenced young children and come out as criminals.”Stating that her client had turned 18 years of age earlier this month, Ms Ryan asked that remand be to Limerick Prison and not the Dublin juvenile facility.St. Patrick’s is, for all intent and purpose, Ireland’s answer to a warehouse for criminals.“It is my opinion, and I am sure some would differ with me on that, but I have huge reservations and concerns about that place,”she added.

Do employees benefit from employee benefits?

first_img Staff benefits schemes seem to be a hot topic at the moment so I thought I’d chime in with my thoughts….In years gone by the company car, paid phone bill’s or company credit card were pretty much the in domain of the professionals at the top of their game working in the most generous of companies. Now though, almost akin to my blog post on gimmicky long interview processes, companies seem to be using the benefits they offer as a marketing tool, and the list of what is being offered is getting longer and longer. There’ nothing wrong with that, but let’s dissect it a little.In recent times there has been a lot of debate over what is considered a generous benefits programme and what is going too far. For example, I refer to Facebook and Apple who opted for a very polarizing benefit of freezing any female employee’s eggs (most suggest in a bid to allow feeling more at ease delaying having children). Or Google California, as another example who trucked in snow to create a snowy wonderland for its staff. Times are of course changing and our wants and needs are evolving with the times. I totally get that we are not programmed in the same way that we were 50 years ago where social norms almost pre-defined at what ages children would enter our lives, or when we should be allowed to enjoy a brisk walk in the snow, but is this taking a “company benefit” too far?In a few less extreme examples such-as, orgs employing chefs to cook meals each day for staff, full gym in-house or even sleep pods. These all sound amazing, right? And who wouldn’t want a part of that, but something that is also worth thinking about is – Are we then blurring the lines further between our professional worlds and our personal worlds? And indeed, is this a good or bad thing? We have already seen a huge shift towards technology interoperability and never being too far away from a piece of tech that could see us struggle to “switch off” in our personal time, but we are now looking at a new age where the comforts of home-life are being brought to the office.This is not to say I wouldn’t dive straight into a sleep-pod given the chance – just food for thought and I’d be keen to hear other perspective on where boundaries should be in the creation of a solid benefits scheme… Related posts:No related photos.
