Manuel suggested for top IMF job

first_img“Institutions such as the IMF must reform so that they can become credible,” Gordhan said in a statement. Professor at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology’s Sloan School of Management and former IMF chief economist, Simon Johnson, told Fin24 Manuel was hotly-tipped as a possible successor. The only way that could happen, was if it reflected the interests of “all countries”. “South Africa calls for a candidate from a developing country to be given the opportunity to be the managing director of the IMF. Such a candidate will bring a new perspective that will ensure that the interests of all countries, both developed and developing, are fully reflected in the operations and policies of the IMF.” 20 May 2011The International Monetary Fund’s new managing director should come from a developing country, South African Finance Minister Pravin Gordhan said on Wednesday.center_img He said there were candidates from several developing countries who were “credible” and “eminently suitable” to run the organisation. He said if the Brics group of emerging countries (Brazil, Russia, India, China and SA) agreed on a candidate, that person could become a front-runner to head the IMF. On Tuesday, Fin24 reported that National Planning Commission head Trevor Manuel could emerge as a candidate to replace International Monetary Fund (IMF) chief Dominique Strauss-Kahn. Although Strauss-Kahn had not formally stepped down, he was arrested for allegedly sexually assaulting a hotel cleaner in New York.last_img read more

Sustainability – Overdue update on Energy Use in the Office

first_imgWe should start collecting baseline data in about two-three weeks with the PoC formally lunching about 30 days thereafter.  I’ll be back soon with status updates.  -Mike Breton IT Technology Evangelist It’s been a few months since I last blogged on Energy Use in the Office.  If you remember from pervious blogs, we did a small proof of concept last summer studying different energy saving techniques in the office environment and found that just providing individuals with Awareness of their usage and some simple tips and tricks to reduce was the most effective.  We’ve been planning a follow-on PoC, on much larger scale, for some time now and I’m very excited to tell you that it is finally about to start. In case this is new to you, here’s a few links to pervious postings to bring you up to date:center_img In the meantime, here’s my question for you: Has your company done anything like this?  If so, what was that experience like?  If not, how do you feel about energy / PC usage data being collected (assuming only you have access to your individual information)? Metering the Office EnvironmentAwareness of Energy Use in the OfficeUpdate on Energy use in the Office Proof of ConceptEnergy Use in the Office Proof of Concept ResultsReducing Energy Use in Offices to Increase IT Sustainability (White Paper)The new PoC will focus on Awareness only and will use a third party tool to “soft meter” individual’s PCs.  They’ll have access to their own individual information via a secure web portal as well as be able to compare their usage to others on their floor as well as the entire PoC population at large.  We’re also installing two larger kiosk type displays in a lobby and café where group and building level rollup usage information can been seen as well.  Maybe there’ll be some friendly competition between floors to see who can reduce the most.last_img read more

IPL created harmony among foreign players: Jayawardene

first_imgInternational cricketers share much better relations due to the Indian Premier League as the Twenty20 event has given them an opportunity to know each other, feels Sri Lankan vice-captain Mahela Jayawardene.”It has opened doors for harmony among the players. In the IPL, you get to know other foreign players better. we have created better relations as a result of that,” he said.Jayawardene said the concept of the IPL and the various Twenty20 leagues across the globe has a lot of potential.”We have seen that in the IPL, we have seen that in the English counties, we have seen that in the Big Bash, that’s the way forward for Twenty20 cricket,” he said in a function to announce an Indian sponsor for the Sri Lankan team ‘Wayamba XI’, which will participate in the Champions League Twenty20 next month.”I think that will evolve quite a bit, just having the Twenty20 World Cup for the national teams, and then the 50-over cricket and Test matches will take a different path.”When the IPL came for the first time, everyone was surprised. But n the second and third year you saw how it became such a big thing,” Jayawardene said.Jayawardene, who will play for the Wayamba team in the Champions league, said the tournament will grow in stature with time.”People now understand what the concept is all about, we need to give it some more time and it will improve,” he said.Wayamba is captained by Jehan Mubarak and includes Mahela Jayawardene, Ajantha Mendis, Rangana Herath, Thisara Perera, Farveez Maharoof and Mahela Udawatte.advertisementSpeaking on the occasion, Sri Lanka Cricket secretary Nishantha Ranatunga said the Twenty20 version of the game can co-exist alongside Test cricket.”From the board’s point and personal point of view, I see Twenty20 as another product, We have Test cricket, one-day cricket and Twenty20 cricket,” Ranatunga said on Tuesday.”From the players’ point of view they have to prove themselves in all three formats. From the board’s point of view, I don’t see any harm as far as the players get the right breaks.”So far, we have been happy and lucky that the players have had the right breaks and participated in the country’s tournaments. It is good to have more competitive cricket, people like it, why not give it,” Ranatunga said.last_img read more

Having failed as coach Down Under, it’s now or never for Duncan Fletcher

first_imgIf Indian captain M.S. Dhoni is wondering what could be the reason for his team’s rotten luck in the ongoing Test series in Australia so far then the answer perhaps lies with coach Duncan Fletcher.Fletcher has not enjoyed the best of series Down Under so far. For all the praise and admiration the Zimbabweans got in the cricketing world for his technical wisdom, Fletcher’s record in Australia is as abysmal as it gets.As the coach of England, and now of India, Fletcher has lost 10 of the 11 Tests he has been involved in Australia. In 2002-03 Fletcher’s English team suffered a 4-1 drubbing in Australia. The 2007 visit down under was worse as the hosts whitewashed England 5-0.Fletcher’s only overseas Test success with India was the 1-0 win in West Indies in 2011.The painful memories of England are still too vivid when India were humiliated 4-0 by the hosts the last summer.Now the question comes, is Fletcher too soft on some of the senior players in the team? What can he do to shake these prima donnas out of their comfort zone?India seem to have wasted the gains made during the era of Gary Kirsten when they were ranked No 1 in both ODI and Test formats.Clearly, time is running out for Fletcher and it is high time he cracks the whip to prevent sixth successive overseas Test loss. It is now or never for Fletcher.last_img read more

Nine out of 10 refs would have waved that off.”He indicated the rematch might happen as early as March or April.Showtime Sports President Stephen Espinoza said May or June might be more likely, giving the fighters more time to recover.In the first meeting, Wilder said he let the pressure of being in his first pay-per-view fight affect him.“I wanted to end it on a great note,” he said. “I wanted to end it on a devastating knockout and I pressed that.

(AP Photo/Mark J. Terrill)MONTGOMERY, Ala.  — WBC heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder says he wants a rematch with Tyson Fury “ASAP.”Wilder said in a conference call Tuesday that he’s “ready and willing to give Tyson Fury the opportunity ASAP.” The two heavyweights fought to a split-decision draw Saturday night in Los Angeles in one of the bigger heavyweight bouts in America in years.ADVERTISEMENT Wilder had lobbied for a fight with Anthony Joshua, who holds the other three championship belts. He said Joshua and his team are “getting what they deserve” by being sidelined from his two most high-profile potential opponents.“We had to show the world what it looks like for the best to fight the best, and look at the outcome,” Wilder said. “No one has talked about Joshua in I don’t know how long and we plan on keeping it that way.”Wilder said he broke his right arm and had surgery about 12 weeks before training camp and threw few right hands during training, which he feels might have affected his accuracy. Co-trainer Jay Deas said limiting the right in camp was a precautionary measure. Will Eagles soar anew?last_img read more
