CY staff protest as state talks to bidders

first_imgBy Angelos AnastasiouCYPRUS Airways (CY) employees took to the streets yesterday in fear for their future, just as the technical committee for the state-owned airline met with representatives from the two airlines – Aegean Airlines and Ryanair – interested in acquiring the flailing national carrier.The protesters gathered outside the offices of KPMG, consultants to CY and members of the technical committee, early in the morning, before moving to the Finance ministry, where the committee met with Ryanair reps.Holding banners that read “no more workers in unemployment”, “shutting down Cyprus Airways=1,000 new unemployed” and “we demand to have our Provident Fund secured”, the employees requested an audience with Finance minister Harris Georgiades but were turned down, igniting tensions among the crowd.CY’s future remains in limbo ahead of a European Commission decision on whether amounts in excess of €100m given to the airline by the government in recent years constitutes state aid – forbidden by EU competition law – and must be paid back, a decision that would instantly trigger the company’s insolvency.For fear of such a decision, the government has liquidated most of the company’s assets.A consistently loss-making entity even before Cyprus’ 2004 accession to the EU, when protectionism was no longer an option, the company managed to stay afloat via a series of cash injections from taxpayer money.But that is no longer an option, and the government is seeking to sell the airline to anyone who would buy it.Aegean and Ryanair, the only two to have expressed serious interest, have reportedly tabled offers deemed very low.Protesting employees are trying to prevent the sale for fear that the new owner might not recognise their employment status and rights under the current regime.Various union reps have expressed employees’ explicit intent to try and block efforts to sell the airline.According to the Cyprus News Agency, employees stressed the need for Cyprus to keep its national carrier, instead of selling it to a foreign company.They also claimed that the €100m in losses that the company has accumulated over the years were the result of mismanagement by governments and politicians, and were not the fault of the employees who are being victimised.In an interview given to the state broadcaster, President Nicos Anastasiades said he would be all for having a national carrier if its existence would not infringe on taxpayers’ best interest.“Who wouldn’t want his country to have a national carrier,” Anastasiades said. “But at the same time, we must factor in the cost to the taxpayer of keeping a loss-making entity operational.The president was less than diplomatic when asked to remark on comments made by Christos Petrou, his own aviation consultant, on Thursday. Petrou had publicly criticised the government for relying solely on non-aviation experts for the handling of the Cyprus Airways issue.“Consultant on aviation – not airlines,” Anastasiades pointed out with regard to Petrou’s duties. “He overstepped the terms of his mandate, because Mr Petrou is an excellent expert in matters of civil aviation, but I do not consider him my consultant on Cyprus Airways – as he is fully aware.”Pilots’ union PASYPI issued a statement yesterday, following the other unions in blaming politicians for driving CY to the ground, while also claiming that the state stands to lose €302m if the airline shuts down.The pilots claim that the state will lose the €100m granted as state aid, €20m in redundancy payments to staff, €3.5m in unemployment benefits and €2.5m from income tax paid by the staff.PASYPI also claims that the state stands to lose from CY’s rent and fees paid to Hermes Airports, the international consortium that manages Larnaca and Paphos airports. Specifically, CY pays Hermes €12m in rent for office buildings annually and €10m in parking and landing fees.The pilots union also included in their list a further €20m in airport taxes paid by passengers to Hermes.They also claimed that one of the companies interested in CY asked for a clause stipulating that they should receive a €40 subsidy for each passenger.“The company stated that they would bring 3 million passengers each year. So that’s an added €120m.”The pilots estimate a further €9m paid to travel agencies employees who would be out of a job, and €4m more stemming from a deal they said the state made with Hermes regarding the Ercan airport in the north. The pilots claimed that, to offset loss of income, the state agreed to pay Hermes €40 for every passenger that travels through Ercan.A representative from Hermes was not available for comment.“If the minister can pay all this out of his own pocket then he is free to shut down CY if he so wishes,” concluded the statement.You May LikeLocksmith of HeartsPhil Collins’s Daughter Is Probably The Most Pretty Woman Ever Existed.Locksmith of HeartsUndoSub Compact SUVs | Search AdsThese SUVs Are The Cream Of The Crop.

been well-discussed already Kangana who had sparked the infamous debate by calling Karan a “flagbearer of nepotism” during her appearance on his chat show “Koffee With Karan” was present at the trailer launch of her upcoming film “Simran” on Wednesday when she was asked about the subject again She said: “Well I have written an open letter on it It’s been very well discussed” Prodded further

go into effect starting this coming season Top News The NBA has for years heard complaints that a free-flowing fast-paced and athletic game grinds to a halt at the most important and compelling time when everyone tunes in to watch the final few minutes of a tight game Now the league is finally taking steps to make sure crunch time doesn’t get bogged down by commercial time The league’s Board of Governors unanimously approved some changes that will potentially eliminate four timeouts per game help speed up the final minutes of games and emphasize a timely resumption of play after halftime The changes all go into effect starting this coming season the NBA said Wednesday Teams will be limited to two timeouts in the final three minutes of a game instead of having up to three All four quarters will have two mandatory timeouts after the 7- and 3-minute marks “We’re pretty happy with the length of the game” NBA Commissioner Adam Silver said “We were more focused here on the pace and flow of the game What we heard from our fans what we heard from many of our teams was that the end of the games in particular were too choppy And I think since I was a kid that was an issue people were talking about the last two minutes of a game” Silver said the full complement of commercial-showing opportunities will still be available to the league’s broadcast partners and that the league doesn’t believe player in-game rest will be affected by speeding up some aspects Also all halftimes will be 15 minutes and delay of game penalties will be issued if teams are not ready to immediately play when intermission ends “These changes will help us fulfill our goal of improving game flow and pace of play” NBA President of League Operations Byron Spruell said “Fewer stoppages and less time without action especially at the end of a game will further enhance the viewing experience for our fans” The league also changed the trade deadline moving it up so teams would not have their rosters significantly altered during the All-Star break This season’s deadline will be Feb 8 _ 10 days before the All-Star Game in Los Angeles Under the old system the deadline would have been Feb 22 when teams are getting ready to resume their seasons after the break If an All-Star is traded to the other conference before the game Silver said the league will review which side that player should play for on a case-by-case basis The NBA’s Competition Committee also considered making other tweaks _ such as the oft-criticized play where so many shooting fouls are now called on 3-point attempts often when the offending contact there seems to be initiated by the offensive player But on that front no changes are coming at this point In other news from the Board of Governors meeting and Silver’s news conference: One and done Silver said the NBA will take “a complete holistic look” at the one-and-done rule and how prepared players are going into their pro careers He said that Kobe Bryant spoke with teams on Tuesday about his development before entering the league straight out of high school “I don’t believe the system is working well for anyone” Silver said Tanking Silver addressed comments made by Dallas owner Mark Cuban that when the Mavericks were eliminated from playoff contention last season they tanked with hopes of improving their draft lottery odds “Yes it’s not what you want to hear as commissioner” Silver said The league and Cuban discussed it and moved on Silver said Luxury tax Silver said it’s too early to say if the NBA is concerned about the chance that 10 or more teams could be in the luxury tax for the 2018-19 season “These systems are so hard to calibrate As the money’s gotten bigger it’s gotten harder to project future cap and tax levels” Silver said “And I think those are all things that we continue to look at Our teams are smart They find ways to compete They work within the existing system but always with one eye on the next time we sit down at the bargaining table” Playoff seeding Silver also spoke about the perception of conference imbalance and the notion of seeding the top 16 teams for the playoffs with no limitations based on conferences He said a study two years ago showed it wouldn’t be ideal though Silver noted that it will likely be looked at again in the future “The only fair way to do it is to have a balanced schedule throughout the season” Silver said Expansion Silver reiterated that neither relocation nor expansion is not in the NBA’s plans right now and that there’s no focus on putting a team in Las Vegas anytime soon He did say that when the NBA looks to grow in the future and it will the league will look at the Las Vegas market _ which it has been fond of for years especially the role it plays in the summer league

authors and was hooked onto the content from the very start By listening to the spoken words of these giants I developed a vision for a great opportunity and my professional calling People like Napolean Hill Earl Nightingale Carl Jung Normal Vincent Peale Dale Carnegie and Zig Ziglar inspired me to take up motivational speaking as a profession I was really impressed with the fact that one

speak from my experiences that speakers need to focus more on establishing their own name for gaining credibility However it is also very important to set up a company or any other registered entity Companies like to do business with companies more than with individuals Professional speaking is a B2B business even if the beneficiaries may be individuals Corporations hold the real buying power so

need to match your message well with the expectations of the audience Context plays a great role in the success of a great speech Do not talk about entrepreneurship when you are talking to employees

they always remember stories and metaphors you share with them As a thumb rule you should have an inspiring story for every tough situation that you have heard people go through By telling them a success story you give them hope as it stretches their reference points Truer the story better it is People can solve their problems if they know the story of some person who solved a similar problem

role (File) Top News After playing hardball for a day over his appointment as life president of the Indian Olympic Association Abhay Chautala seemed to soften his stand a bit as he agreed to step down if the International Olympic Committee has reservations about it Former IOA president Suresh Kalmadi who had been appointed alongwith Chautala at an AGM in Chennai on Tuesday declined the post less than 24 hours later but Chautala had remained defiant But after the sports ministry slapped a show-cause notice on IOA and announced that it will have no dealings with it till the appointments were reversed and even some IOA members expressed their displeasure the Haryana Olympic Association president seems to have relented but with conditions “I wish to thank the IOA for nominating me to the ceremonial position of Lifetime President and I have already informed the President IOA through a separate letter that if IOC is not favourably inclined to my taking over as Hon Life President after the (IOA) President has had an opportunity of discussing this matter personally with IOC I will be pleased to sacrifice my position in the best interest of Indian sports sportspersons good Governance transparency and cleanliness in India sports” Chautala who has been charge-sheeted in a disproportionate assets case said in a statement He asked IOA president N Ramachandran to meet IOC officials to sort out the matter “I am given to understand that in the AGM of Guwahati in 2015 where I was not present IOA had resolved that certain amendments which have only been made in India and are not applicable to other countries should be taken up by IOA with IOC The AGM in Chennai was informed that IOC was extremely busy with Olympics and therefore this matter could not be discussed for a period of one year “I have noted that the AGM (in Chennai) has now requested the President to take up this matter with IOC to have a complete understanding on whether people who have been chargesheeted under Indian Law for political reasons not connected with sports can be kept away from active management of sports or not The AGM has given three months’ time to the President to discuss this matter with IOC” Chautala said The Haryana strongman said he has already sacrificed once when he had to step down after his election to the post of IOA president prompted the IOC to de-recognise the Indian body He claimed that the amendment in the IOA constitution barring chargesheeted individuals from contesting elections was the handiwork of “vested interests” “I have always served sports selflessly and will do everything for promotion of sportspersons and sports Although I was elected President of IOA in 2012 I decided to sacrifice this position in 2013 when vested interests from within India were able to influence an amendment to IOA Constitution On account of this amendment I decided to relinquish the post of President IOA in the best interest of Indian Sports” Chautala claimed He highlighted the workdone during his time at the helm of the erstwhile Indian Amateur Boxing Federation and the medals won by India at the Olympics “We have very fond memories of Vijender Singh becoming the first bronze medallist in boxing in 2008 in Beijing Olympics when I was President of IABF I was also pleased that Mary Kom won a bronze medal in 2012 London Olympics Indian boxers brought laurel by winning medals in all 10 weight categories including six gold medals in CWG 2010 Indian boxers constantly won medals in almost all of the major multi–disciplinary Games and International Boxing Championships during my tenure as IABF President” Chautala also used the opportunity to take potshots at sports minister Vijay Goel who had termed the appointments “unacceptable” and asked both sports administrators to either resign or the IOA to remove them He raked up the controversy of Goel’s conduct during the 2016 Rio OLympics “I am personally aware of the conduct of the Minister of Sports at Rio Olympics where IOC had questioned the behaviour of the minister and his associates and threatened to withdraw his accreditation I do not wish to dwell more on this subject as I do not want to embarrass the minister as well as the Sports Movement in India If necessary I will brief the Prime Minister on this issue of Rio Olympics” he said Meanwhile the deadline for replying to the sports ministry’s show-cause notice expires on Friday but IOA said it will first consult IOC on the matter “The IOA president is out of the country he is in New Zealand We are not replying tomorrow on the show-cause” an IOA official was quoted as saying by PTI “Moreover we cannot directly reply to a show-cause notice like this Under the Olympic Charter the IOA enjoys autonomy and independence from government interference We will first consult with the IOC on this notice before thinking of replying” he said “Normally we would not have replied on such a notice but may do so after consultation

before the the National Pravasi Bharatiya Divas is due to begin the Akhilesh Yadav government will likely hold the event in Agra the invitation for which are currently being sent out to the NRIs and which would cost $100 (or Rs 6500) In its attempt to woo the NRI crowd the government has planned to give away “UP Ratna” to 10 individuals all of whom hail from the state and have “done exceptionally in their respective fields” abroad Moreover the government has come up with the ‘NRI card’ By paying Rs 500 for the card an NRI can avail entry to government offices besides “priority” in getting a meeting scheduled with government functionaries Until November 25 as many as 413 NRIs have applied for the card which will be given away after the successful verification of their passports and other important details The cards will be sent over e-mail bearing a unique identification code a senior state official informed The government’s earlier attempt to hold the first NRI Day (on February 28 earlier this year) could not take off due to the lack of administrative planning “But this time we have prepared well in advance The registration process has already started and we have introduced the fee to ensure that only genuine people attend the function We are expecting about 200 NRIs’ participating at the event which would take place around the same time as Pravasi Bharatiya Divas” Sanjeev

invitations Islam had donated $2 million to his alma mater Aligarh Muslim University to build a management school in May this year The government’s stance towards the NRIs really took a flight in July this year when it passed an order prohibiting registration of any FIR without the prior permission or knowledge of the IG of that respective zone Additionally it has already offered them support to help find their native places if they visit the state and has now declared that it would make arrangements for them to visit their respective villages if they attend the event next year According to the government’s planning preparations are being made to showcase projects such as the Lucknow-Agra Expressway Lucknow Metro Trans-Ganga city and Poorvanchal Expressway during the event where it would also encourage the visitors to invest in their respective places of origin While the event may be coming after a year’s delay the government has always had plans to make it an annual affair on the

move” A former backroom coach for England Mushy may have recalled those words last week as his former employers were knocked over in Bangalore by India’s Yuzvendra Chahal a man who has represented India with not only bat and ball but also with board and bishops Chahal has previously suggested his chess training helps him stay focused on the cricket field AP Chahal has previously suggested his chess training helps him stay focused on the cricket field but whether he had – or needed – a particular plan for each England batsman is unclear Eoin Morgan’s side largely sacrificed their wickets but the young spinner’s success nonetheless meant both he and his chequered history were back in focus A talent from an early age Chahal’s proficiency at chess led to him becoming national junior champion and representing India at both the World and Asian youth championships when a teenager A decade later he was precipitating one of the greatest collapses in international cricketing history On the board or on the square Chahal can certainly claim to know a thing or two about blitzes Chahal is not the only link between the two sports even if the undisputed king of Indian cricket Sachin Tendulkar once admitted that he was “largely unsuccessful” when it came to taking pieces rather than guard Given the prominence of strategy in cricket it is probably inevitable that possibly its most vaunted tactician Mike Brearley was a noted fan of chess In his book The Art of Captaincy the ex-England skipper relates how firm a grip the game could have on not just him but his teammates: "In South Africa in 1965 I was acting as twelfth man while England batted in a Test at Johannesburg Bob Barber and I happened to be in the middle of a chess game When he called me on to the field during his innings ostensibly for some dry gloves his purpose was to inform me that his next move was Queen’s pawn to QB4" With both games being played to some degree in the mind another famous captain Steve Waugh might appreciate the words of former world chess champion and inscrutable flawed sorcerer Bobby Fischer In a quote evocative of Waugh’s famous “mental disintegration” tactics the American once said of his approach to crushing opponents: “I like the moment when I break a man’s ego” That happens many times in cricket but using your opponent’s ego can also be equally effective in both disciplines Last year Magnus Carlsen retained his world chess title against Russian Sergey Karjakin but only just After being expected to win comfortably the Norwegian was frustrated by his challenger who at times employed a rope-a-dope strategy goading his opponent into being fatally over-aggressive It might be a bit unfair to compare Magnus Carlsen to Tino Best Ok it is very unfair But the same strategy was used by one of cricket’s self-proclaimed leading chess players Andrew Flintoff to lure the West Indian into one of the most notorious ego-induced dismissals in memory Flintoff might not be the first name that comes to mind when trying to think of a chess-playing cricketer but his liking for such a cerebral game fits in with his multi-faceted character For all his rumbustious post-retirement goofing around on game shows and (on the subject of rope-a-dope) in the boxing ring he is actually an adept interviewer on his BBC radio show and according to him equally adept with his chess pieces: "I played for Lancashire which is bizarre really” he told The Guardian “I had a teacher at primary school and it was almost like something out of a film where you had this school on an estate and you had these kids coming to play chess on their lunchtime" Although his brother played for England Flintoff says he turned his back on the game but with his diverse range of retirement interests we might once again see him take it up The Pedalo Gambit could make quite a catchy name for an opening strategy The love can cut both ways Nigel Short the British Grandmaster is a huge cricket fan but more intriguingly another Grandmaster from a nation not known as a bastion of willow and leather is also besotted Russian Peter Svidler who was introduced to the sport by Short after the Englishman invited him to watch the India versus Pakistan World Cup clash in 1999 is a self-confirmed cricket nut He has even used the handle “Tendulkar” to play online and once appeared in a chess tournament in Gibraltar solely because the organiser was an Australian who promised him a net session Svidler explained the appeal in an interview with the Yorkshire Chess website: “It’s my kind of game I love the slow development of a well-nuanced story From a certain point in my life it felt like home to me I will always be grateful to the English chess player Nigel Short for introducing me to cricket I would say it has made my life better It’s nice when something suddenly appears in your life which makes you happy” He is not however a fan of T20 Unsurprisingly India’s first ever Grandmaster and former world champion Viswanathan Anand also has his connections to cricket He once waded into the debate over Tendulkar playing into his forties saying the batsman should carry on “as long as he wanted” Anand also took part in an advert for computer processors where he swapped his black and whites for just whites and faced a few balls He displayed a defence which was more Afridian than Sicilian seeing him bowled many times before telling the camera you have to make the right choice in life and for your computer It wasn’t cricket and chess’s finest exchange but did again show that the two games share plenty more common ground than just Yuzvendra Chahal Then the next day,” “We are also briefing the community members about the infrastructural and developmental works
