After Major Investors Insist, Uber Chief Travis Kalanick Resigns

The CEO of Uber Technologies Inc., Travis Kalanick, resigned, limiting a number of controversies that shook the world’s largest technology company and exposed the fundamental problems in their male-dominated culture.

The one who most identifies with the world meteoric rise of the man who climbs the giant walk said that he gave in to the desires of the investors that he got out of the way, partly to avoid another conflict. Uber has been harassed by this year’s drama of accusations of sexual harassment in the use of software for referral regulators.

The outgoing CEO joins a number of outlets, including entrepreneur Emil Michael and President Jeff Jones. Kalanick admitted his leadership weaknesses after Bloomberg has posted a video showing the executive discussion with driver Uber, an incident that helped build resentment among his drivers. His departure comes just weeks after his mother’s death in a sailing accident.

“I love Uber almost everyone and at this difficult time in my personal life, I have accepted the request of investors for me to put aside so that I can return to Uber’s building instead of distracting myself with another fight,” said Kalanick it’s a statement. He will remain on the board, Uber said separately.

Kalanick’s resignation was previously reported by the New York Times.

Like the public face of Uber, Kalanick embodies the good start.
Earlier this month, he told staff plans to leave, leaving the company to be run by a management committee.

This month, the company shares the recommendations of an investigation that has entrusted to the growing workplace problems by the United States law firm Eric Holder. More than twenty people have been transferred as part of a separate investigation by another company.

Despite the recent turmoil, Uber’s rise in business. Revenues increased to $ 3.4 billion in the first quarter, while losses have declined, although they remain significant at 708 million. Kalanick remains a billionaire has maintained his stake in the company, with a net worth of 6.7 billion dollars, according to the Bloomberg billionaire Index. Uber himself was valued at 69 billion dollars.

The company has tried to eliminate a pilot from defecting by adding a feature to its application that allows customers to provide advice, a feature that has long been offered by US rival Lyft Inc. The company also said They begin to compensate drivers for trips canceled more than two minutes after booking and offer new insurance plans. Garrett Camp, Uber Founder and Board Member, wrote an email to employees Tuesday, trying to build morale.

“This is a bold decision and a sign of his dedication and his love for Uber,” said Uber’s board of directors in an e-mailed statement in Kalanick. “On leaving, it takes time to recover from his personal tragedy, while giving the company the opportunity to fully embrace this new chapter in Uber’s story.”

Bengaluru tech firm to female employee: Not responsible for your safety after you log out

Bengaluru tech firm to female employee: Not responsible for your safety after you log out

The murder of Pratibha, a BPO employee December 13, 2005, rocked the entire industry. This tragic incident has brought with it many changes, especially with better security measures implemented by IT / BT and BPO companies.

However, in Bangalore, where the incident took place, it seems that some companies are still trying to save money by not providing their employees working the night shift with pick up and taxi facilities up.
This IDC Technology is located in Hosur

The main road in Madiwala. The company has its global operations centers in the United States, Canada, Mexico, and India.
Manisha Kumari, a technical recruiter, decided to highlight the disastrous attitude of the company’s leaders in the safety of women in the workplace.

After joining this technology company in February, he was told that there would be picking up a facility and taxi deposit for a month and then things would be sorted out. But until today, the company has provided no cabin setup.

In fact, it was said that India Today is only for the last month, but the problem was dragged for 2 years. Initially, the employees were working from 6:30 p.m. to 3:30 p.m., but when they had complaints they could not move the morning hours they were changed from 7:30 p.m. to 4:30 p.m.
Manisha said there were many maids who travel along and this turned out to be a problem and dangerous. So much so that some of them expect their hours to disconnect until dawn before they go by car, bus or taxi.

It is risky and Manisha was faced with three harassing incidents after leaving her career, even though she lives only 4 km from the office.
When she said this, she said, “Once, I was harassed by a taxi driver near the union of the Silk board that was mutilated with me when I left work and another time by two men on a bicycle.
She received no help from the technology company of the

The vice president has made it clear to all that the company is only responsible for them while they are working and not when they connect.

Manisha met today with IT Minister Priyank Kharge, who gave him a patient hearing and assured that action will be taken after filing a written complaint with the department.

Today, he told India that his department wrote to these companies every six months to follow these rules. The minister also promised that “if companies reject these rules, we will act because there are rules for this.”

India Today visited IDC Technologies to deal with him on it. From their initial refusal to respond to these allegations, they said that they had done nothing wrong.

However, their night shift human resource load tried to dodge our questions by saying that negotiations are ongoing with taxi providers to begin this facility.
He added that it was not easy to solve this problem quickly because they have to deal with management and there are also costs. From now on, he said they have discussed and, once the administration approves the budget, taxis can be implemented.

7th Pay Commission: Cabinet meeting to decide on revised allowances for govt employees likely today

7th Pay Commission: Cabinet meeting to decide on revised allowances for govt employees likely today

The long wait of nearly 50 lakh central government employees over the revised reviews could end today. It is expected that the Cabinet of Ministers of Narendra Modi will meet today to make a final appeal to the benefits under the seventh payment commission.

Some reports have suggested that the Modi government could start issuing revised assessments from July.
The Council of Ministers of the Union has accepted the recommendations of the Seventh Commission to pay in June last year and since then has been a long wait for employees to fully benefit from the implementation of the report.
Central government employees, on several occasions, expressed disappointment at the large delay in the deployment of the revised benefits.

Previously, the Union Cabinet had to deal with the issue of compensation, at its last meeting held on June 7
Finance Minister Arun Jaitley is likely to table the proposal for the revised allocation structure today’s cabinet meeting.
Among the various allocations, the Cabinet is likely to discuss subsidy houses (HRA), which was a major concern for government employees.

The Seventh Payment Commission has recommended that 53 of the 196 grants as central government employees to do more to merge 36 smaller allocations.

The Seventh Payment Commission also suggests reducing the home rental subsidy rate (HRA) for central government employees in varying degrees, depending on the city. Per Meters, pay table suggested reducing IRH 30% to 24%.

As central government employees protested against recommendations, the Modi government has formed a committee under Finance Secretary Ashok Lavasa in July last year to review the suggestions. Lavasa The group submitted its report to Arun Jaitley on 27 April.

Prior to submitting the review report on Lavasa Group held discussions with all stakeholders, including representatives of central government employees and various ministries.

A statement from the finance ministry on the Lavasa report said that “changes have been proposed in certain benefits that apply universally to all central government employees and other subsidies that apply to specific categories of employees.”

The Ashok Lavasa report was sent to the Ministry of Expenditure for the first round of examination before being placed before the Committee of Secretaries (COS-E) for another round of testing.

Before the E-State has submitted its report to the Office of the Union, representatives of central government employees have written to the Cabinet Secretary PK Sinha and said they do not have the impression that the recommendations of the Committee of allocations Ashok Lavasa. They also expressed their anxiety about an excessive delay in the implementation of the Lavasa Group report.

After conducting the Ashok Lavasa examination report on compensation, the Committee of Authorized Secretaries (COS-E) transmits the report with its suggestions to the government after a meeting on 1 June.
If reports are to be believed, central government employees are likely to start receiving revised benefits as part of the Seventh Payment Commission as of July.

However, the central government may not want to grant arrears, one of the main demands of employees. According to reports, employee unions have planned protests if delays in demand payments are not respected.

Advisory committee wanted Anil Kumble to stay but Virat Kohli's tantrum made it impossible

Advisory committee wanted Anil Kumble to stay but Virat Kohli’s tantrum made it impossible

The resignation of Anil Kumble as coach of India surprised the cricket fraternity of India and took the BCCI by surprise.
Reports of a distancing between coach and captain Virat Kohli had appeared before the Champions Trophy but still hope that Kumble would continue because the advisory committee had appointed last year for a period of one year was eager to see it continue.

Therefore, it was decided that Kumble would be visiting the Caribbean for a limited short trip with the team. This could have given men time and space to resolve their differences. More importantly, the advisory committee of the legendary Sachin Tendulkar, Sourav Ganguly and VVS Laxman could have used the time to negotiate peace.

However, the first signs of the shocking resignation came on Tuesday, when Kumble did not fly to England with the players. The BCCI said the coach had to withdraw from a meeting of the ICC Cricket Committee in London. A few hours later, the resignation came.

Now, what really led Kumble to this point? Kohli rejected the new differences with his trainer as mere rumors. But Kumble said why she was leaving. In a typical effective statement, the former spun leg said its reason for drastic. Kohli said he reserved his style and continued as a coach.

What was the Kumble style? In his own words, “professionalism, discipline, commitment, honesty, complementary skills and different points of view.” Despite the strong support of three former illustrious cricketers, Kumble felt he could not win when the captain was against him. Not just the captain, most of the changing rooms wanted him to come. The players apparently need to return Ravi Shastri, as they considered it kinder and easier.

Indian cricket has risen to a total disaster in recent weeks. There was a palpable tension in the locker room and the communication between the coach and the captain had broken down. And BCCI has not helped.
Kohli met with the Advisory Committee on the eve of the Champions Trophy final to discuss the trainer’s problem while awaiting the funniest question of dealing with a resurgence of Pakistan.

By allowing Kumble to go, the board of India has played in the hands of Kohli. What is the guarantee that Kohli would cry without more if he did not see the next coach.

The former coach of India and World Cup winner Madan Lal suggested that India needs a coach who would be content to remain calm. But are people like Virender Sehwag and Tom Moody enough? If they do not, said Lal, they would face the same fate.

Kumble’s balance as a coach is phenomenal, but he had to give up just because the captain had a tantrum. “The intimidation, the billing and the masterful head”, apparently, were the words thrown by the captain.

But if the team does not work, is not the coach just shouting at his players and berating? Is not supposed to ensure that players give 100 percent in training.

Kumble was a fighter at his peak. He returned to the West Indies bowl with a jaw fracture. He did not give an inch required, but clearly he was not ready for the little fight with his captain.
Kohli today is probably India’s most powerful cricket man and has dominated the powerful Ganguly –
The Tendulkar and Kumble association had no choice but to end the distressing drama.

Pakistan reclaiming cricketing glory after tumultuous Tableeghi tryst

Pakistan reclaiming cricketing glory after tumultuous Tableeghi tryst

Many crowds welcomed the winning team members Pakistan after a successful campaign in the Champions Trophy. Thousands of people have passed through different cities across the country as ten players landed after weeks of losses and increases in England. And thousands gathered outside the residence of Captain Sarfraz Ahmed, who proudly held the trophy for his team by beating India in a one-sided final.

Pakistan celebrated its victory and it deserved. They won. But there is more to celebrate for a country that has long been frustrated by the inability of its players to be in tune with the modern game: the influence of extreme religiosity influenced by the presence of Jamaat Tableeghi has ended the decline.

Tableeghi Jamaat or TJ movement which was started in 1927 by Muhammad Ilyas al-Kandhlawi India. Wikipedia describes TJ as “an Islamic missionary movement non-Sunni political world that focuses on encouraging Muslims to return to primary Sunni Islam, especially in ritual clothing and personal behavior.” The organization is estimated at between 12 million and 150 million (The majority in South Asia) and the presence of between 150 and 213 countries. It is called “one of the most influential religious movements of Islam in the 20th century.”

The cricket world had noticed a sudden change in the installation of the Pakistan team under Inzamam-ul-Haq, who took the captainship in 2004. Over the next three years until he retired players were actively encouraged to offer Namaz ) In its public totality. Cricket players have grown beards, thanked the Lord before the post-match speech and did not even spend much time in the gym perfecting their fitness.

However, TJ’s influence dates back to the reign of Waqar Younis as captain, who had led Saeed Anwar, who was in mourning for the death of his daughter. The smart workers left and then spent time recruiting team members inside their organization and religious transformation of a cricket team was underway.

The impact of Islamic practices on the cricket structure has long been a point of discussion in the Pakistani media.
Again in 2013, reported the Dawn of the former chairman of the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) Shaharyar Khan in his book “The Cricket Cauldron” wrote about the religious movement in the team. At the 2003 World Cup, Anwar had told his teammate’s heavy applause that “the angels will come down and help Pakistan win the Cup.”

Pakistan was eliminated in the first round after winning only against the Netherlands and Namibia, Waqar was removed as patron and many of his other riots were withdrawn. Inzamam has backed in 2004 (after a brief step Rashid Latif) and under him, key players were kept cold as they did not fit the religion unconditional interpretation.

Inzamam led Pakistan to the 2007 World Cup and again, the team left the first round, this time to face the humiliation of losing to Ireland.
Pakistan’s performance began to come up short since 2003 and the terrorist attack on the Sri Lankan team in Lahore in 2009 has still pushed things in Pakistan. No international team returned to play in this country, with the exception of Zimbabwe in 2015 limited series. As a result, the team suffered.
