Manchester United legend Gary Neville believes Marcus Rashford has the potential to go beyond becoming a top-class playerThe 21-year-old striker appears to be another star who has benefitted from Jose Mourinho’s departure at Old Trafford after struggling for regular starts.This led to uncertainty surrounding Rashford’s future with ex-United star Garth Crooks accusing Mourinho of “killing” him last month.Under interim coach Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, however, Rashford has been given a new lease of life with the Norwegian playing him in a central forward role.And Rashford has repaid Solskjaer’s faith by scoring three goals in his four matches in charge of United, which has kept Romelu Lukaku benched.“The spring in the counter-attack is there and Rashford playing up front is fantastic – I love him to bits,” Neville told Sky Sports.Maguire 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…“He’s played nearly 150 games at the age of 21 and his potential is enormous. It’s actually now stepping up beyond the potential to where he will be a top-class player.“People will talk about Romelu Lukaku and how is he getting back in the team – don’t worry about that, worry about the kid that’s playing that’s going to devastate teams.“He gives them mobility. They just need more energy up front. Lukaku has not been at his best.“He has earned his chance. He gives them something different and he is a fantastic player.“He is on the right trajectory to become something really special for Manchester United.”The Red Devils will next face Reading in the FA Cup on Saturday.
Over the summer, Time Inc. acquired sports news site Fansided and created Sports Illustrated Play, a digital platform devoted to youth and amateur sports. Then, earlier this month, the company announced that All You, the coupon-filled, once-ubiquitous shopping companion that held an exclusive deal with Walmart for ten years, would cease operations at the end of 2015. Founder and editor-in-chief Jane Pratt, as well as her editorial staff, will stay on and make the move to Time Inc.’s lower Manhattan headquarters, reporting to Time Inc. style network general manager Deborah Marquardt. xoJane.com received 2.5 million unique visitors in September, according to comScore, while sister site xoVain.com had 958,000 over the same period. Pratt had been seeking a buyer since previous owner Say Media made the decision to divest from all of its editorial properties in February. Terms of the deal were not disclosed. Time Inc. continued some early holiday shopping, officially announcing its acquisition of women’s lifestyle and beauty websites xoJane.com and xoVain.com after a week of speculation on the impending deal. Since last year’s spin-off from Time Warner, Time Inc. has undergone considerable effort to expand its brand portfolio and audiences in an effort to develop new revenue streams, all with an increasing emphasis on digital content. “We are delighted to have the opportunity to serve this modern, inclusive community of women, increasing our reach in this important segment and providing our advertising partners with more access to targeted, engaged audiences,” says Time Inc. EVP Evelyn Webster in a company release. Following last week’s acquisition of HelloGiggles, the move is yet another attempt by Time Inc. at expanding its reach to a young, increasingly-digitized female audience. Other major publishers have made similar millennial-grabbing moves of late; Condé Nast purchased music site Pitchfork and Hearst signed an advertising and distribution agreement with Lena Dunham’s newsletter, Lenny.

But like YouTube, a lot of the user-generated content may infringe upon copyright holders’ content by borrowing song snippets. However, Facebook is onto a solution.Bloomberg reports that Facebook is looking to secure a multimillion dollar deal with record labels and music publishers to license music for video content posted to the social media giant. Facebook aims to keep the music industry content while they develop a more complex solution to infringing content, which could take as long as two years to develop.Currently, copyright holders can use Facebook’s Rights Manager to request the takedown of user videos, but Facebook wants to develop a platform that automatically detects infringing music, similar to the way YouTube’s Content ID platform works. Content ID allows copyright holders to request takedowns or the option to monetize the use of their content.In addition to the recent announcement of their Watch video hub, which will feature original programming, this latest development puts Facebook in the running to become a video giant on par with YouTube.Facebook “Watch”: Videos From Billboard, Nas And More Facebook News Facebook Goes After Music Licenses

Tata Starbucks employees are being wooed with a benefit that many employees long for: five-day week. The employees (baristas) at Tata Starbucks coffee stores already enjoy two free drinks and free food. The latest is a move by the company is a step forward in employee engagement and talent retention.From May 15, all the 1,200 employees of Tata Starbucks working at its 83 stores across India will be working five days a week. What’s more, they get to choose their weekly off. “The five day work schedule marks a first-of-a-kind initiative for a food and beverage retailer in India,” Tata Starbucks said in a statement. The company is a 50:50 joint venture between India’s Tata Group and Starbucks.No wonder, the employees are happy. “It is definitely good for the employees, we are happy,” Atul Inderyas, Assistant Store Manager of a Tata Starbucks outlet in Bengaluru told International Business Times, India Edition.”Most of the employees are between the age group of 20-27…young people. Making it a 5-day work schedule will not be a burden as we do not have any fixed day off. It’s flexible. The main aim is to increase efficiency and effectiveness. If any employee comes with a request, we are flexible to change the roaster and give them offs,” he added.In other countries where Starbucks, employees enjoy even more privileges. For instance, Starbucks China announced a monthly housing allowance subsidy to help China partners overcome the financial challenges of beginning their careers. In yet another initiative, Starbucks UK in 2015 launched the “Home Sweet Loan” programme wherein an interest-free loan is given to help partners pay rental deposits when they move into a new home.Tata Starbucks also has its share of unique benefits for its employees. “We are entitled to three drinks and one food item free of cost every day,” Indreyas said.Sumitro Ghosh, CEO, Tata Starbucks, said the company recognises the significant role of its employees in the success of the venture. “We acknowledge that our success would not be possible without the contributions our partners make on a daily basis to provide an exceptional third place experience for our customers and we are pleased to adopt a five day work schedule that also recognizes their commitments outside of their work,” Ghosh said in the statement.The move, according to Tata Starbucks, is in line with its goal of becoming an “Employer of choice in India”.Ready to join Tata Starbucks?

Khaleda Zia BNP chairperson Khaleda Zia appeared in the makeshift court set up in the old central jail on Nazimuddin Road in Zia Orphanage Trust graft case on Wednesday, but without her senior lawyers.”You don’t get justice here. You can hand me whatever punishment you want. I am ill. I cannot come here so many times. My legs swell up if I sit like this. None of my senior lawyers came today. I would not have come had I known this,” said Khaleda, a former prime minister.The judge, Md Akhtaruzzaman, attended the court at 11:00am while Khaleda was produced before him at 12:15pm.Brought in a wheelchair, the BNP chair was wearing a purple saree, her legs covered with a white shawl.Dhaka Bar Association president Golam Mostafa Khan came to the court on the day. When he saw that none of her senior lawyers were present, the pro-BNP lawyer spoke to Khaleda with the permission of the court.”I have come here as the president of Dhaka Bar Association. The order that the court will sit here in the jail did not reach her lawyers,” he said, urging the court to set a fresh date for the debate that was scheduled for today.Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC) lawyer Mosharraf Hossain Kajal, however, claimed that the order did reach Sanaullah Mia, the most senior lawyer moving for Khaleda.In the end, judge Md Akhtaruzzaman extended the bail and set 12 and 13 September the next dates for the hearing.The ACC filed the Zia Orphanage Trust case on 3 July 2008 with Ramna Police Station accusing Khaleda, her eldest son Tarique Rahman, now living in the UK after securing bail, and four others for misappropriating over Tk 21. 0 million (2.10 crore) that came as grants for orphans from a foreign bank.
