Juventus strongly interested in rehiring Paul Pogba

first_imgJuventus reportedly study various ways to lure Paul Pogba back to Turin, probably in the next summer transfer windowThe 25-year-old star has spent five years at the Allianz Stadium where he established himself as one of the best midfielders in Europe.Still, the tall Frenchman has decided to return to Manchester United where he started his football career. During his 3-year spell at Old Trafford, Pogba became a cornerstone of Red Devils’ midfield along with Nemanja Matic.However, a recent argument with Jose Mourinho seems to have made a negative impact on the France international.Ever since Mourinho has announced he won’t be handing the captain’s armband to his headline performer, Pogba’s displays have dropped notably.harry maguire, manchester UnitedMaguire says United need to build on today’s win George Patchias – September 14, 2019 Harry Maguire wants his United teammates to build on the victory over Leicester City.During the summer, Harry Maguire was referred to as the ultimate…Currently unhappy with his life in the Premier League and nostalgic about his time in Serie A, Pogba allegedly thinks of making another switch.According to the Italian publication, Calciomercato, Juventus Sporting Director Fabio Paratici hopes to capitalize on current Pogba’s situation to bring him back to Italy.The EPL giants have already expressed their interest in two Bianconeri players, with both Alex Sandro and Medhi Benatia ending up in Mourinho’s crosshairs.Therefore, Paratici plans to offer both defenders to Manchester United, hoping it could soft Red Devils to renounce Pogba’s services to resolve their defensive problems.Although no timeline for a potential deal was mentioned, it seems most likely that the transfer would be completed in the summer unless the reigning Serie A champions find a reason to push for a deal in January.last_img read more

Alaska Legislature Passes Budgets Ends Extended Session

first_imgThe operating budget included $10 million above what Walker proposed for the University of Alaska. It included funding for additional prosecutors and law enforcement positions and for 20 positions to address a backlog in public assistance applications. Despite running long, the session lacked the drama of the past several years, which were marked by drawn-out special sessions and bitter fights over the budget and taxes. The budget bills now go to Walker for review. The end of session merited a “fist pump in the air for everybody,” Edgmon said. Senate discussion on the budget included hopefulness about a recent rise in oil prices and the positive impact that could have on the budget. North Slope oil was about $77 a barrel on Thursday. It was around $50 a barrel at this time the past two years. Saturday started slowly, with lawmakers meeting behind closed doors and trying to reach final agreement on what would be needed to finish up. Floor sessions scheduled for the morning started hours late. The operating budget that was ultimately approved Saturday would be paid, in part, using Alaska Permanent Fund earnings, an outcome lawmakers were essentially forced into after years of drawing down on savings to fill a budget deficit that has persisted amid slumping oil revenues. When Edgmon announced on the House floor Saturday that it would be last day of work, it drew a smattering of hands pounding on desks — the legislative equivalent of applause. The package also includes another $28 million for Medicaid, though Walker’s budget director Pat Pitney said that falls short of what is needed and could lead to delays in provider payments. Lawmakers chose to cap dividend checks at $1,600 for this year, a level Gov. Bill Walker has said he supports. The dividend calculation in state law already had been ignored the past two years amid gridlock over how best to fill the deficit. Legislation passed, too, setting up a raffle to benefit schools, which Alaskans could enter using all or a portion of their Permanent Fund dividend checks. Seventy-five percent of entry dollars would go toward public schools and a new education endowment. The remaining 25 percent would go toward a prize fund. Legislative leaders have said there was insufficient support this year to pay out a full dividend under that calculation, which would have been about $2,650. Facebook0TwitterEmailPrintFriendly分享JUNEAU, Alaska (AP) — Alaska lawmakers ended the extended legislative session early Sunday after passing state spending plans and a flurry of other bills in the waning hours.center_img Senate Majority Leader Peter Micciche said lawmakers wanted to complete their work and get back to their districts. He said he wasn’t happy with the outcome but said compromise was needed — and demanded by Alaskans tired of gridlock. Lawmakers also passed a flurry of other bills, including a statewide smoke-free workplace bill that had languished for months in the House despite widespread support. Walker told reporters he had no plans to call a special session, which he said was a testament to the work lawmakers accomplished. On the House side, Republican critics of the budget said the package was too large and unsustainable. The permanent fund is a nest egg, seeded with oil money, which has grown through investments. The fund’s principal is protected, but fund earnings can be spent. Use of earnings in the past, however, has been limited to things like paying out dividends.Lawmakers also agreed to use money from the constitutional budget reserve, a state savings account, to help fill the deficit. Lawmakers worked past the 90-day, voter approved-session limit in mid-April. They finished within the constitutional time limit; the constitution permits sessions of up to 121 days, a limit that would have been reached Wednesday. The measure calls for a withdrawal of $1.7 billion from Permanent Fund earnings to help pay state government costs and another $1 billion for the yearly dividend checks residents receive from the oil-wealth fund. House Speaker Bryce Edgmon said legislators in both chambers decided they would have to trust one another, work together and compromise “in order for us to get out of here in an orderly manner.”The Senate has a Republican-led majority. The House majority coalition is composed largely of Democrats. The capital budget, which emerged from House Finance late Saturday, isn’t solely an infrastructure package. It also includes health and safety projects and school funding — an additional $20 million for public schools for the fiscal year starting July 1, and $6 million over two years for pre-kindergarten programs. Heading into the day, the major unresolved pieces were the operating and capital budgets. A tentative agreement had been reached on the operating budget earlier in the week but needed House and Senate approval. The capital budget was being worked on in the House Finance Committee. The capital budget also puts money toward two projects Walker had previously halted: a bridge over Knik Arm to provide another way of connecting Anchorage to the state’s fastest-growing area and a project to help connect Juneau to the road system.last_img read more

Harrys Dollar Shave Club Billie and more 6 razor subscription services to

first_img Ah, yes, Gillette. I’ll bet you’ve used one of its razors in your life. In response to all of these razor subscriptions popping up in recent years, Gillette also offers its own.There are three tiers for men:Sensor 3 — $7 for eight disposable razors, delivered every one, three or six monthsMach3 — $7 for one razor handle and four razor cartridges + $10 for four refillsFusion ProShield — $17 for the handle and four cartridges, $17 for four refill razor bladesThose prices are actually competitive with Amazon, at least for some of the products, and not all Gillette refills on Amazon offer Subscribe and Save. If you really want to “set it and forget it” with your razor blades, Gillette On Demand isn’t a bad deal.Oh, and for the ladies, you can get Gillette’s Venus razor on demand. For $10, you get a free handle, plus four cartridges. Refills — which also include four cartridges — cost $10 too. You can sign up to get those refills every month, every 3 months, or every six. For comparison, a new Venus handle with only two cartridges costs around $10 on Amazon. Harry’s Personal care Dollar Shave Club Post a comment Dollar Shave Club Supply One of the original razor subscription services, Dollar Shave Club offers three razor options; two-blade, four-blade and six-blade. All are under $10 per month for replacement blades and for the one-time cost for the handle.What started as just a razor subscription brand has now expanded into several lines of men’s grooming products, including skincare, hair care, fragrance, deodorant, shaving and oral care.For your first order, Dollar Shave Club urges you to get a starter pack, which includes two cartridges, a handle and shave butter for $5. After two weeks, you’ll automatically get a restock shipment of four razor cartridges and shave butter for around $25 (or more if you add additional products). You can customize both your starter kit and restock shipments to include body wash, face wash, shampoo, toothpaste and a toothbrush.Though their branding is aimed at men, I’ve purchased and used Dollar Shave Club’s razors in the past and they’ve worked well for my legs and underarms. Bevel Harry’s focuses on simplicity, style and craftsmanship for its shaving products. There are just two handles to choose from, and one type of razor cartridge. Its Winston handle is metal with no-slip rubber grips for $20. For $9, you can get the Truman, which has a rubber coating throughout and comes in orange, navy and green.Like Dollar Shave Club, Harry’s has starter pack for $8 that comes one razor blade cartridge and shave gel. Harry’s will send you eight new cartridges for $15 (plus shaving gel for an extra $6), every two, three or five months, depending on how often you shave.Harry’s also sells face wash, post-shave balm, soap and other body care items. P.S. I’ve also used their razors with good shaving results. If you truly want a women’s razor, Harry’s owns a brand called Flamingo that sells them, but it does not offer a subscription service. Gillette on Demand Harry’s Supply Getty Images A decade ago, if you needed razors, you headed to the drugstore. Now, there are many different companies that will send you new razors straight to your door, usually for less money than you’ll pay in-store.And while you certainly can just set up Subscribe and Save on Amazon for your favorite name-brand razor, Dollar Shave Club, Billie and other shaving subscriptions hope to provide more value with lower prices, better quality and add-ons.Interested in chucking your drugstore Bic for a monthly razor subscription? This guide will help you choose which one to use.These products and services are independently chosen by our editors. CNET may get a share of the revenue if you buy anything featured on our site. Billie See at Billie Designed for men of color See at Dollar Shave Club Bevel Coarse facial hair can be hard to shave, but kinky or curly hair is even harder. Bevel’s shave kit is designed with men of color in mind, to address their specific skin and shaving needs.The shaving kit mimics what you’d see at a barber shop, with a shave brush, skin oil, shave cream and an aftershave balm. All of those skin products have moisturizing oils to prevent bumps, razor burn and ingrown hairs. When it comes to the actual hair removal, instead of a multi-blade cartridge, you use a single-blade safety razor. The kit is $30, and Bevel will send you refills of razor blades, oil, shaving cream and the balm. See at Amazon 0 See at Supply See at Harry’s For men who love a straight razor shave, or who just consider themselves a bit hipster, there’s the Supply razor. This sleek single edge razor is made from aerospace-grade stainless steel and uses injector-style blades that are easy to change. Its unique design helps it stand apart from the typical safety razor. Oh, and the razor has a 100-year guarantee.Why yes, of course there is a starter set. It includes the razor handle with six month’s worth of blades, the standard shave setting, a shave brush, shaving cream and aftershave for $129. For just the razor, it’s $79 and new blades are $10 for 20 — which the company says will last you six months.Like Bevel, the Supply single edge razor is designed to minimize skin irritation, razor bumps, ingrown hairs and razor burn. Its unique design helps it stand apart from the typical safety razor.Yeah, those prices are steep, but Supply offers you a 100-day trial. If you don’t like it after you try it, you can get a refund.Supply sells a few extras too. For $30, you can get two metal pieces that let you customize how the razor shaves. One of these “shave settings” is designed for sensitive skin, the other for a close shave. You can also get a beautiful, though superfluous, leather case for $40. A razor that celebrates body hair The works Billie’s ambition is to provide women’s razors and body care products that don’t cost more than men’s. Women’s personal care products are often subject to the “pink tax,” meaning they cost more simply because they are marketed to women.The brand sells one style of razor, available in Instagram-worthy five colors. It has five blades and has a band of charcoal soap around the blades to help the razor slide easily while shaving.Billie’s $9 starter kit includes a handle, two cartridges and a magnetic holder to store the razor in your shower. The company then sends you four replacement blade cartridges monthly (or whatever frequency you choose), which also cost $9. Billie also sells body lotion, body wash and shave cream.What I particularly love about this company is that it celebrates and normalizes women’s body hair, whether you choose to shave or not, with its Project Body Hair campaign. Anyone can submit a photo of their body hair, and you can see photos from others who’ve contributed. In a society that often demonizes any kind of physical flaw on women, this approach is frankly refreshing.

DemandSupply Mismatch Electricians Earn as Much as Desktop Engineers

first_imgEngineer Draftsman17,53025,98039,120 Experience0-2 years2-5 years5-8 years Desktop Engineer14,70018,95029,700 Can an electrician earn as much as an engineer? This may come as a surprise, but the answer is yes! Salary statistics by staffing solutions company Team Lease suggests that a desktop engineer, who stands at the lowest rank in the tech sector, may be earning almost as much as an electrician outside. (See table)The firm has compiled a comprehensive overview of the labour market comprising jobs, salaries and skills in nine major cities across India. A Team Lease spokesperson said that because the infrastructure sector is on the verge of a boom, the demand for small-scale workers has grown like never before. “In the past 6-7 years that we have been studying salary patterns, the monthly incomes of electricians, plumbers and welders have only risen. On the other hand, entry-level salaries of engineers, especially IT engineers, have remained more or less the same,” The Times of India quoted Rituparna Chakraborthy, co-founder and senior VP of Team Lease Services.While IT professionals are aplenty, it is these skilled labourers that are much in demand but not as many when it comes to suppy. This demand-supply deficit has caused their salaries to notch up.”Of the 10 electricians required in the industry, we are finding it difficult to get even two. A large infrastructure company recently told us that if we could bring them one lakh welders, fitters, plumbers and electricians, the company would be happy to employ them. That’s the kind of demand for these workers,” Rituparna added.ExperienceExperience0-2 years0-2 years2-5 years2-5 years5-8 years5-8 yearsExperienceElectrician0-2 years11,2802-5 years15,5005-8 years26,400ExperienceDesktop Engineer0-2 years14,7002-5 years18,9505-8 years29,700ExperienceEngineer Draftsman0-2 years17,5302-5 years25,9805-8 years39,120ExperienceMechanic0-2 years9,5002-5 years12,0005-8 years18,840ExperienceIT Engineer0-2 years17,5002-5 years26,7005-8 years37,600 IT Engineer17,50026,70037,600center_img Electrician11,28015,50026,400 Mechanic9,50012,00018,840 Source: Team LeaseHindustan Construction Company (HCC) expects the demand for labour to increase even more in the coming years.

The dithering on Air India sale is just another shameless sellout of

first_imgA fuel tanker moves past Air India passenger jets parked at an airport in Kolkata May 6, 2012.Reuters fileFor an important parliamentary panel, the appropriate time for Air India privatisation hasn’t yet arrived. Are they a bunch of incorrigible optimists or just those nonchalant ‘beltway’ spendthrifts who love to splurge largesses on their own ilk?The Parliamentary Standing Committee on Transport, Tourism and Culture said in its draft report the taxpayers should continue to underwrite the losses of the decadent business that stopped returning profits — and serving the nation — ages ago.In 2012, the Manmohan Singh government ruled out privatisation of Air India and instead announced a plan under which Rs 30,000 crore would be funnelled into the company over a ten-year period to revive and turn it around. At the halfway mark of the costly turnaround plan, the fortunes of the withering behemoth aren’t looking up. It’s still wallowing in the quicksands of debt and corporate inefficiency.It wasn’t the first time that divestment of the carrier was on the table. The Air India sale came up as an option at the turn of the century but was put on the backburner, leading to huge losses, debt pile-up and bailouts while the white elephant remained a haven of red tape, lethargy, apathy and mismanagement.The parliamentary panel highlights the operational profits the national carrier made last year. But it conveniently forgets the fact that the meagre operational profits were a result of a continued softness in the global oil markets.Those blips on the bottom line were not brought around by any miraculous operational efficiency displayed by its 30,000 strike-prone, heavily unionised and combative workforce that loves grounding flights and skipping schedules at the drop of a hat. And, despite the operational profits the panel brags about, the sinking airline, which hasn’t reported net profits in the last ten years, continued to accumulate losses running into thousands of crores.All whimsical ‘turnaround’ plans by successive governments have involved the infusion of funds, generous loan guarantees and sometimes even the commitment to repay interest on outstanding loans. All this for the love of the idea of a national carrier? If the parliamentary panel has its way the government will end up funnelling another Rs 20,000 crore of good money after the bad. More taxpayer money down the drain, and with no logical end in sight to the problem.According to the estimates of Centre for Asia Pacific Aviation (CAPA), the postponement of Air India divestment will also further lead to the erosion of investor interest. “Parliamentary panel recommending divestment of Air India be postponed by 5 years will further erode its value. CAPA estimates that the government would need to inject additional $2.5-3bn funding, and these may be conservative estimates,” Kapil Kaul, Chief Executive of CAPA, said, according to NDTV.The civil aviation ministry itself admitted some time back that it doesn’t know if anyone will be interested in buying the airline sitting on top of an explosive debt load and a decadent legacy.How bad is Air India’s debt burden?Air India carries a debt pile of Rs 52,000 crore. Of this, about Rs 22,000 crore is estimated to be aircraft loans while the bulk of the debts emanate from operational costs gathered over years of mismanagement. Such a huge debt overhang, coupled with the legacy work culture, is a major deterrent for a straight-laced privatisation bid.In October, there were reports by the Economic Times that the government would be willing to absorb a large chunk of the debt, yet again, to make the rickety company attractive to suitors. This debt offloading would incur the government a cost of about Rs 33,000 crore.The Parliamentary panel unabashedly vouches for another round of loan write-off. That’s hardly the solution. Air India should be allowed to go bankrupt, let its massive real estate assets in major metropolises be sold or auctioned to repay debts. The taxpayers, the banks and the investors in the banking sector don’t have to be scapegoats anymore. It’s an age-old thought, but when will the government finally move out of managing businesses that are better run in the private sector?Instead of talking about writing off the debts of the deadwood company and propping up its bloated establishment further, the banks should be allowed to seize the mortgaged properties, sell or auction them off to recoup their non-performing assets. If this doesn’t happen sooner, more loan write-offs and costly recapitalisations will ensue, eventually bleeding the public exchequer which in turn has to be replenished with more taxes. Mix this with the latest guidance envisaged in the FRDI bill aimed at resolving ‘bad debt’ in the system, and it’s clear who is going to bear the brunt.Complete privatisation While complete privatisation makes sense, the civil aviation ministry has been dead against such a move. The finance ministry is in favour of offloading the entire stake and leaving the Maharaja in the hands of private players. The Niti Ayog supports this line too. The third option is for the government to keep a stake in the carrier while it cedes control to the private owners.The government should go ahead with the privatisation of the airline without losing further time. The Cabinet Committee on Economic Affairs had given the nod for privatisation earlier this year. Now, the parliamentary panel’s reasons for putting off the divestment are hogwash. It claims Air India’s worth is larger than its business utility and offsets the onerous public burden the company passes on to the government every year. It even says the airline is useful at times of natural calamities! Overall, the sloppy text put out by the panel is a litany of shameless excuses and brash apology for a public burden.last_img read more
