Short identifies next manager

first_img The 61-year-old was shown the door on Saturday night just hours after his side lost 1-0 at home to Manchester United – a decision former Reading manager Steve Coppell described as a “spoilt-brat reaction”. Press Association Sport understands Short has drawn up a shortlist of potential successors headed by a man he believes can reinvigorate the squad for a seven-game run-in which will determine where the Black Cats will play their football next season. Press Association Sunderland owner Ellis Short has identified his number one target for the vacant manager’s job at the Stadium of Light after dispensing with the services of Martin O’Neill.center_img They are currently just a point above the Barclays Premier League relegation zone after a run of eight games without a win. Former England boss Steven McClaren, whose second spell at Dutch club FC Twente came to an end last month, was swiftly installed at the top of the bookmakers’ list of candidates, although sources close to the 51-year-old have since distanced him from the speculation. It is understood there had been no contact with former QPR manager Mark Hughes, while the man who took the Champions League trophy to Chelsea, Roberto Di Matteo, is not thought to be interested. Former Swindon boss Paolo Di Canio’s odds shortened considerably overnight while Brighton’s Gus Poyet was also receiving strong support, although Sunderland are keeping their own counsel over their main target. The new man will be Sunderland’s fifth manager in a little more than four years, and the first the Texan will have chosen since Niall Quinn’s departure as chairman. And Coppell feels that tendency to chop and change is indicative of the approach of overseas owners. “You can only presume there was some dialogue after the game,” he told BBC Radio Five Live. “We are in the realms, I’m afraid, of spoilt-brat reactions because it is their toy. They don’t understand the history and heritage of British football – there are so many foreign owners, I have nothing against that, but there is a way of doing things in English football that has now gone out of the window.” last_img read more

On the flight to St Petersburg, for the World Cup preliminary draw, he was accompanied by his wife, his daughter, a nanny and his two sons, one of whom had been flown in from Sao Paulo, Brazil to Zurich in business class at FIFA’s expense. CAS said the private jet cost “$71 699 which was never deducted from Mr. Valcke’s salary”.In May 2015, just before Sepp Blatter was re-elected as FIFA president, 14 delegates were arrested in Zurich.The ruling stated that “according to the Appellant’s testimony at CAS he was only following Mr. Blatter’s directions to not travel on commercial flights to avoid arrest, which in itself is manifestly not a valid reason for a law-abiding individual.”The court also found that Valcke had been guilty of a conflict of interest, which he failed to disclose, in helping his son Sebastien secure a job with virtual reality company EON, which was about to sign a contract for the 2014 World Cup.The court also found that Valcke, a former journalist, had destroyed evidence despite being warned not to by Fifa’s legal advisors, deleting at least “1 034 files or folders…between 24 September and 11 October 2015 (the day before handing over his work laptop to FIFA.)”The court also found that Valcke profited from allocating extra 2014 World Cup tickets to middle men and then profiting from their black-market sale.Valcke, along with Nasser Al-Khelaifi, president of Paris Saint-Germain and chairman and CEO of beIN Media, is also the subject of criminal proceedings by the Swiss courts for “private corruption” in connection with World Cup media rights.Valcke, who is 57, is now based in the Barcelona region where he has set up a company called OMV Frontline which specialises in organising and managing sporting, artistic and fashion events.Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegram The Court of Arbitration for Sports (CAS) yesterday ruled against the former FIFA Secretary General, Jerome Valcke against an appeal on ban on him.Valcke used private jets for himself and his family and exploited his position as FIFA scribe to help his son to win a job.He was also implicated in the resale of match tickets for the 2014 World Cup, was fighting a 10-year FIFA ban. CAS found against him in a ruling issued on Monday night.Between January 2011 and September 2013, private jet flights by FIFA executives cost $11.7 million (9.9 million euros), with Valcke largely responsible, according to the CAS statement on the decision. In 2013, the FIFA director of finance sent Valcke an email asking him to find “more cost efficient alternatives wherever possible”.During his time as general secretary, Valcke “took four trips which were inconsistent with FIFA’s travel policies and regulations…on which he was accompanied by family members at the expense of FIFA,” said the ruling.

Former CEO discusses fashion industry at Annenberg

first_imgAccording to Gersh, the rise in popularity of the social media and internet news has led to rapid changes in fashion and advertising. Aspiring fashion professionals must learn how to merge media with business, she said. Many companies are struggling because they fail to use social media to promote fashion shows and products. Gersh said young students who want to work in fashion media should use their knowledge of social media to help companies market their products to younger demographics. During the event, Gersh highlighted the importance of gender diversity in the workplace and said it was vital to include multiple women in meetings and business decisions. Lisa Gersh, former CEO of Alexander Wang, spoke to students about the need for gender diversity in the workplace and the importance of integrating social media into business. (Photo from Twitter) Lisa Gersh, former CEO of luxury fashion label Alexander Wang, discussed common trends in fashion and lifestyle design in the business sector Monday at an event hosted by the Annenberg School for Communication and Journalism’s Media, Economics and Entrepreneurship Women’s Leadership Society. Gersh spoke about ways women can advance their professional careers in the fashion industry and about methods to adapt to new intersections of media and fashion. Gersh reflected on her own experience as CEO of Alexander Wang, and she offered advice for women who intend to pursue a leadership role in the future. “It’s a really rapidly changing field, and I think people who are thinking about going into marketing should be thinking about social [media],” Gersh said. “That’s really where all the dollars are going and the 42-year-olds can’t figure it out.” “I think people are really struggling [to change] because it used be so formulaic — you bought five pages of a magazine, you had a fashion show,” Gersh said. “I think it’s really challenging for the fashion business, in order to figure out really how to get noticed.” WLS member Anam Faruqi said she enjoyed learning about business and the fashion industry through Gersh’s experiences. “I don’t think you should try to balance your passion,” Gersh said. “I think you’re looking at a career path — it’s something you’re really excited about, something that really drives you. You should find a way in and go in that direction.” Marilyn Zhang, a freshman majoring in journalism, asked for Gersh’s perspective on how to balance passion in a career. “We’re really dedicated to recruiting female professionals to come and talk to our members and the public about their career paths and hopefully inspire them,” Wright said. “Lisa is amazing … her cross-platform career where she’s worked in media and she’s worked in fashion, and she’s held such high roles in these companies — so a very diverse perspective.” The event was moderated by Andie Wright and Maya Kashlan, both seniors majoring in public relations. The moderators said they hope hearing from Gersh will encourage young women to advance their careers and secure more executive positions. “I think it was really enriching … I think she gave us a lot of insight about what it means to be a leader and just the business industry in general,” Faruqi, a freshman majoring in communications, said. “I also thought it was very interesting the way she has jumped around so much in her career.” “If leadership is something that attracts you, then that’s the path you want to be on,” she said. “Doing different things is … a really good path to becoming a CEO … getting really good at [a task] and completing the task is really important before you move up.” “It changes the conversation for women, when there’s other women in the room,” Gersh said. “It makes it so much easier.” In addition to business advice, Gersh also discussed her background and journey to becoming a fashion and media specialist. She began as a lawyer, but soon managed to secure executive positions at PopSugar entertainment media company, Martha Stewart Living Omnimedia and NBC Universal.last_img read more

NFL free agency news: Safety Eric Weddle signs with Rams

first_imgEric Weddle wasn’t a free agent for long.The former Ravens safety has already received 11 offers just a few days after his release from Baltimore earlier this week, according to NFL Network, which cited unidentified sources. But he has agreed to terms with the Rams on a 2-year deal reportedly worth up to $12.5 million and $5.25 million of that will be fully guaranteed. Fear the beard.— Los Angeles Rams (@RamsNFL) March 8, 2019He’s already sporting a new look in Los Angeles..@weddlesbeard’s ready to rock this thing! 🤘— Los Angeles Rams (@RamsNFL) March 8, 2019The veteran would have received a $6.5 million base salary in 2019, which may have been too steep for the Ravens to justify keeping him on their roster. He had previously stated that he would consider retiring if Baltimore released him, but he has since backtracked his comments. A six-time Pro Bowl selection, Weddle is entering his 12th NFL season after spending three seasons with the Ravens and nine with the Chargers, who selected him in the second round of the 2007 draft. Weddle, 34, finished the 2018 season third on the Ravens’ roster in tackles with 68, though he failed to log an interception. He led the Chargers in tackles five of his nine seasons but left the team after falling out of favor with since-fired coach Mike McCoy. Ravens cut safety Eric Weddle Related Newslast_img read more
