1 Lazar Markovic The summer clearout at Liverpool appears to be gathering momentum.After Mario Balotelli ended his disastrous Anfield spell by rejoining AC Milan on Thursday, fellow summer 2014 recruit Lazar Markovic looks set for a loan move to Fenerbahce.The 21-year-old winger endured an inconsistent season on Merseyside, showing flashes of his potential but failing to secure a first-team berth.And those first-team opportunities look set to fade with the arrival of Roberto Firmino this summer and the emergence of Jordon Ibe.Despite the proposed deal, Reds manager Brendan Rodgers still holds Markovic as part of his long-term plans and hopes some time away from the club will help restore his confidence.Liverpool fans, however, don’t seem particularly happy at the decision, and some of them took to Twitter to voice their displeasure:
1 Clinton N’Jie failed to find the net in his first season at Tottenham Lyon and Nice are both hoping to gazump Marseille in the race to land Tottenham flop Clinton N’Jie.The young striker, who failed to score a goal during his first season at Spurs, is set to leave White Hart Lane on loan this summer.And he is expected to join Marseille for the coming season with an obligatory clause to buy him outright for £6million should he make a certain numner of apperances for the French side.But, according to L’Equipe, two other Ligue 1 clubs have now joined the race and hope to turn his head with the promise of European football.Marseille finished a disappointing 13th place last term while Lyon and Nice finished second and fourth respectively.And, although a move to the Stade Velodrome appears on the cards, N’Jie might yet change his mind at the last minute.

However, for removing his Leicester shirt he was booked by referee Michael Oliver – as the laws of the game dictate – which many lambasted the official for, though Maddison asked for people to stop the abuse.“Regarding tweets about Michael Oliver, he’s just doing his job and didn’t have a choice. He didn’t enjoy showing me a yellow and shared his condolences about the passing of Sophie which I thought was very respectful.” Here’s how the opening weekend of the Premier League will get under way for the 2019/20 season“The unbelievably special football boots I will be wearing during the European Championships for England. My best friend always with me @SuperStrongSoph,” he tweeted, thanking Puma for the ‘surprise’.The boots feature a picture of Sophie, and the words ‘there is a new angel in Heaven’.There is also a picture of the top he revealed after scoring against Burnley in March, which reads “RIP Sophie I Love You”.

1 June 2007First National Bank (FNB) expects South Africa’s tourism industry to boom in the run-up to the 2010 Fifa World cup, as increasing numbers of existing and potential tourism business operators apply to the bank for finance.In a statement released last week, FNB says that statistics gathered at the Tourism Indaba in Durban in early May showed a 300% increase in projected figures for potential business coming through the bank.“Businesses are looking at growth in various ways,” said FNB head of solutions for tourism Pieter de Bruin. “People who approached us at the Tourism Indaba ranged from those who are looking for commercial property financing to buy or construct new buildings for accommodation, to those businesses looking to finance new assets, such as transport fleets like buses.”An analysis of business activity at the FNB branch located at the Durban International Convention Centre also showed increased foreign currency sales driven by the number of foreign visitors to the Indaba.De Bruin says the high number of tourists coming to events like the Indaba represents a significant boost for the local economy; and he believes they are set to increase in the run-up to the World Cup, presenting local entrepreneurs with business opportunities in the expanding tourism market.“Increasingly, we hear about the opportunities offered by the 2010 Fifa World Cup, but the local industry should actually be working towards 2009,” De Bruin said. “2009 is the year for the Confederations Cup, the precursor to the World Cup, as well as the British and Irish Lions Rugby Tour – both of which will bring thousands of sports fans to South Africa.”He believes that both 2009 and 2010 will be milestones in the phenomenal growth of the tourism industry in South Africa, with television coverage of those events being broadcast to viewers across the globe.“2010 is just 30 days, but tourism growth goes way beyond the event itself,” he said.According to FNB, most of South Africa’s luxury hotels are already experiencing unprecedented occupancy levels, driven mainly by holidaymakers in Cape Town and business travellers in Johannesburg.“In the years following the sports events, South Africa expects many return visitors who came here initially as sports supporters,” FNB added. “This should set in motion the increasing popularity of the destination to the world travel market.”SouthAfrica.info reporter Want to use this article in your publication or on your website?See: Using SAinfo material
24 April 2008World football authority Fifa has confirmed that Johannesburg will be the home of the International Broadcast Centre (IBC), the nerve centre for all television operations and the world’s news agencies during the 2010 World Cup.The IBC at the Expo Centre at Nasrec, to the south of Johannesburg, will ensure that the tournament is broadcast in high definition television to billions of viewers across the globe. On average, over 2 000 people from the world’s major broadcasters and Fifa’s host broadcaster, HBS, will work around the clock from the IBC in June and July 2010.Speaking at the launch of the centre on Monday, Johannesburg Mayor Amos Masondo said locating the IBC in the city would significantly strengthen South Africa’s ability to host the most successful World Cup ever.Hosting the centre was a golden opportunity for the country, the Gauteng province and Johannesburg to showcase the maturity of South Africa’s democracy, and the sophisticated infrastructure and quality of service in the country.“In Germany there was in excess of 13 400 accredited TV commentators, camera crews and technical staff,” he said. “We expect that a similar figure will use this centre as their headquarters and that many of them will reside in the accommodation that is going to be built here.”Included in the high-tech facilities planned for the IBC are satellite teleport and telecommunications infrastructure, which will support a transmission capacity of 40 gigabytes a second.Broadcast hubJohannesburg is already the country’s primary broadcasting hub for international and local television and radio, as well home to almost 60% of all information communications and technology (ICT) enterprises in South Africa.Fifa president Sepp Blatter sent a recorded message congratulating the city for winning the bid to host the IBC, beating Durban and Cape Town, adding that the launch of the IBC marked another “important and significant milestone towards 2010”.“As you know, I am a supporter of modern communication, and this IBC will be one of the most advanced centres of information in the world,” said Blatter. “Through a sophisticated network dedicated for this event, it will be linking the 2010 Fifa World Cup in South Africa to the rest of the football family all over the globe. This way it will create a legacy far beyond the event in terms of telecommunications infrastructure for the country.”Masondo added that hosting the IBC would have a positive effect on Johannesburg’s gross domestic product, with direct expenditure exceeding R340-million and over 3 000 jobs being be created.“When we look at the projected spend by the media contingent we proceed from the existing figure that business tourists to South Africa spend on average R2 002 per day,” Masondo said. “Thus, the estimated spend in Johannesburg in 2010 by the foreign broadcaster contingent at the IBC is R209-million and the total direct spend that is projected in the city due to the hosting of the IBC is R319.9-million.”Strategically positioned2010 Local Organising Committee chief executive Danny Jordaan said Johannesburg managed to pip the two other cities because of its superior accommodation and transport infrastructure.“The IBC is not only within walking distance of the Soccer City stadium, which is hosting the opening and final matches, but moreover it is strategically well positioned in close proximity to various other 2010 Fifa World Cup stadiums, including Ellis Park, Loftus Versfeld and Royal Bafokeng, just to name a few,” Jordaan said.In closing, Masondo said the city was excited about the prospect of hosting the world’s TV and radio stations as well as Fifa’s host broadcaster.“For a six-week period during the 2010 Fifa World Cup the eyes of the world will be focused on our city but in reality, the entire South Africa, indeed the whole continent of Africa, will be in the global spotlight,” he said.Source: City of Johannesburg
Kevin Cashman’s book on why personal development is essential to exemplary leadership was first published in 1998. Since then, the self-help manual has become a business classic. For this 20th anniversary edition, Cashman, a senior partner at Korn Ferry specializing in CEO and executive development, conducted extensive new research, asking corporate CEOs and company presidents to review his models of leadership and to critique his leadership propositions.The third edition of Leadership from the Inside Out: Becoming a Leader for Life (Berrett-Koehler, 2017) features updated content and two new chapters: “Story Mastery” and “Coaching Mastery.” It offers a virtual coaching experience that will help you develop as a “whole person” and, thus, as a “whole leader.” It also includes tools HR professionals can use to improve themselves, their employees and their organizations.HR Magazine recently spoke with Cashman.This book was one of the first to connect personal growth with leadership development. Why is it so important to focus within?The book is about both leadership from the inside and leadership that serves the outside. It is both inside-out and outside-in. The reason this is so important is that the person and the leader are one. Despite our attempts to separate them, they are the same entity. Impact one and it impacts the other. The book gives you a profound and pragmatic means to grow as a whole person [in order] to grow as a whole leader.You explore eight areas of personal mastery. Which area do leaders tend to struggle with the most?Leaders struggle with all eight mastery areas; that’s why each one is so important to activate and sustain leadership. However, most leaders and CEOs admit that Resiliency Mastery is the toughest to practice. With 24/7 global schedules, [as well as] nonstop marketplace and shareholder demands, it is tough to not only keep one’s energy high but also multiply that energy throughout the enterprise. Resiliency Mastery helps leaders to develop energy-building practices in order to more effectively serve all those we touch.There is a new chapter in the book about Story Mastery. Why did you include this in the new edition?Stories are the language of leadership. Stories have the unique capacity to elevate heads and hearts to go beyond what is. Stories are so potent. Great stories can communicate concepts, values, principles, character, learning and vision—all at once!However, stories are so much more than storytelling. Before we can “tell our story,” we first have to comprehend it. Story Mastery takes us on a developmental journey to Know Our Story (self-awareness), Be Our Story (authenticity), Express Our Story (inspiration) and Comprehend the Plot (purpose). Engaging this development process, we strengthen our leadership voice as we find the sweet spot of leadership: deep authenticity of the leader and deep relevance for the listener.What advice do you have for new or aspiring leaders?To emphasize service over success. Try not to get too caught up in your own ambition. Be ambitious about learning, collaboration, purpose and service. Find mentors that balance performance and purpose [and] who value people as the real generators of success. Care more about the success of those around you than your own success.Desda Moss is managing editor of HR Magazine.
