Facebook’s Sheryl Sandberg: ‘Pay women well’

However, the chief operating officer of the company, in an interview for the records of the desert of BBC Radio 4, said that the first step is “start to pay women well.”

She chose Beyonce to feed the world (the girls) as the first song.
She said: “We are beginning to tell the girls not to carry a very young age and start telling the boys [to] drive at a very young age, it is a mistake ..”

“I think everyone has within them the ability to lead and we must let people choose those who are not based on gender, but for what they are and want to be.”
In an emotional interview, Sandberg also talked about her husband’s sudden death in 2015 and the effect on her two young children.
Sandberg has made headlines in 2013 with her book “Lean in” on empowering women in the workplace.
It became a worldwide sales success, but was criticized by some for being elitist and impractical for many women who are not in their prime position.
“We need a policy”

In the interview, he called for more to reduce the pay gap between men and women.

Sandberg admitted that he had problems with the doubt at Harvard and acknowledged that women more than men underestimate their own value, which prevents them from putting in or asking for a raise.
“We have to start paying women well and we need public and business policy to make this happen,” he said.

“Certainly, women who seek employment at the same rate as men, women who work in the office in the same proportion as men, should be part of the answer.”
‘I’m sad’

After the sudden death of her husband Dave Goldberg, Sandberg has described a “different” person now.

He found the floor of a gym with a head injury after suffering a heart attack while on weekends.

Sometimes in tears she said: “I’m sad I did not know anyone could cry because I asked my sister – she’s a doctor – and said that most of her body was .. water,” he joked.
Means legend. I felt as if I had entered a void, as if I could barely breathe – Sheryl Sandberg

She chooses one by U2 record as if she kept the other seven were deleted because Mr. Goldberg had loved the group, adding that her music was very important: her husband was the founder of the online music site Media presentation.

Another of her eight tracks was Queen You are my best friend tribute to your intimate group of friends that she helped accompany to overcome the experience.
The play was a “lifesaver”

Since his death, Sandberg said he had become more empathic and Facebook doubled the amount of time that Facebook employees can take off when a member of the immediate family dies after 20 days.

She said it was also important to support people and build their confidence if they wanted to go to work.

Luggage screening intensified after Australia airplane plot

Continued to increase security at airports around Australia with a more intense luggage after officials of law enforcement they foiled what the police chief described Monday as a “credible attempt to attack a plane.”

Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull and Minister of Border Protection, Peter Dutton, declined to comment on press reports according to which Islamic extremists were planning to kill the occupants of an aircraft with poisonous gas and a bomb was going to be dressed up like a pinwheel Of kitchen.

“Police claim that they have planned and developed capacity,” said Turnbull Australian Broadcasting Corp.

Turnbull said Sunday that “a terrorist plan to shoot down a plane” had been cut short, but revealed few details.
Four men detained in raids in Sydney late evening – two Lebanese – Australian father and son – had yet to be charged.

Australian Federal Police Commissioner Andrew Colvin said a court ruled Monday that the four could be detained without charge for seven days after their arrest under anti-terrorist laws.

“We believe we have thwarted a legitimate and credible attempt to attack an aircraft,” Colvin told reporters without specifying.

Colvin describes the threat several times as “device”, not to mention if it was explosive.

“The plot study, we believe, was an attempt to put a device on a plane, but beyond that, it’s just speculation: speculation,” he said, adding that police had “many theories of work”.

Colvin and the government did not comment on media reports that the suspects did not previously know responsible for Australia’s security and their arrests came after a council of a foreign intelligence agency.

“Australians can be sure that we have very good intelligence and that they focused quickly on him and, as it turns out, with good results,” Turnbull said.

The Australian newspaper quoted multiple sources as saying that the plotters were building a “non-traditional” explosive device that could emit toxic gas sulfur to kill or immobilize everyone on the plane.

The Daily Telegraph newspaper in Sydney reported that hunters planned to make a bomb of wood chips and explosive materials on the kitchen equipment like a meat grinder.

Police attacked five homes Saturday and a domestic grinder and a grinder used to make sausages were removed, according to the newspaper.

The plot involved smuggling the device on a flight from Sydney to the Middle East, perhaps Dubai, as carry-on luggage, according to the newspaper.

Fairfax Media reported that the bomb was found in a house in the neighborhood of Surry Hills, a few doors from the local mosque.

Turnbull declined to say whether the group was led by a person abroad.

“It is said that he was an Islamic extremist, a terrorist motivation,” the prime minister said.

HSBC Rises as Second Quarter of Growth Backs Turnaround Story

After publishing a second quarter earnings growth and plans to return another $ 2 billion in cash for investors, Stuart Gulliver’s six-week investment in HSBC Holdings Plc could eventually grow.

Adjusted income and pre-tax profit rose 4% and 13%, respectively, on analysts’ estimates, as the bank continued to inject capital into the most profitable markets in Asia and the bank’s profits increased investment .

The latest acquisition means the London-based bank has committed to buying 5.5 billion shares over the past year, and leaders said they were willing to do more.

“The focus on the key market will be to improve revenue and capital formation trends,” analysts at Goldman Sachs Group Inc. wrote in a note Monday. “Investors will focus doubt on the consequences this may have for future returns on capital.”

The results indicate that HSBC’s Gulliver reorganization begins to pay off as the bank begins to rise after five years of declining revenues.

The CEO has spent most of his long-term downturn and imposed central control over HSBC’s vast global network, leaving about 100 companies and 18 countries, while enduring more expensive misconduct scandals.

The new regulations also depressed shareholder capital payments, while banks accumulate money to fill their absorption scholarship losses.

HSBC has reached the end of the capital construction process after raising its ratio ratio 1 common equity to 14.7 percent from 14.3 percent by the end of March, above its target range 12 percent to 13 percent.

More acquisitions?

“We’re going to keep the dividend” and “it’s possible we’re more than willing to use the repurchase to actively manage our capital,” Gulliver said in a telephone interview.

“We will use purchases if we find that we have excess capital beyond what we believe we can deploy profitably in the business and accrued well beyond the shock we feel is necessary.”

Ivanka and Jared find their limits in Trump's White House

Ivanka and Jared find their limits in Trump’s White House

According to a measure last week was good for Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner.

President Donald Trump’s daughter and son-in-law duplicate for weeks to persuade him to oust chief of staff, Reince Priebus, for a new leader capable of “professionalizing the West Wing,” according to several White House officials. On Friday, Trump has finally announced that he would replace Priebus by John Kelly, the Secretary of Homeland Security, Monday.
The victory followed the designation a week before Trump financier Anthony Scaramucci, a campaign surrogate and a donor, as communications director, a move that the couple also strong support.

But if Ivanka Trump and Kushner, socially liberal former liberal donors are influential voices with Trump in staffing decisions, which have so far had little impact on their policies.

Last week, President Tweets banned trans people to serve in the military, according to several White House attendants, a staff shot for conservatives who pressed the administration months ago.

White House leaders said the first girl was shocked by her father’s messages; In the past, Trump has been an advocate for gay rights. Ivanka Trump, according to these officials, learned the decision to see her father tweet on her phone.

The decree came less than a month after the first tweeted girl in honor of the month of pride, “I am proud to support my LGBTQ and LGBTQ American friends who have made great contributions to our society and our economy.” New wave of liberal rage directed at Ivanka Trump.

To speak of a White House war between New York liberal conservatives and traditionalists, which was the latest example of the limited influence that moderates could exert on politics.

Six months ago, few would have thought that the president would have avoided his daughter to deliver victories in the fiscal and social conservatives, but that is precisely what happened with the transgender military ban, the Pentagon suspended pending its review.

Now, as Ivanka Trump faces certain limits of her White House power, she seems to reduce her goals and disappoint the progressives who have given their hopes to the President’s family members who exert a moderating influence over her presidency.

“Actions speak louder than words,” said Sarah McBride, national press secretary for the Human Nonprofit Coalition. “Or Ivanka is ineffective in his defense in the building, or the voice does not matter to the president as much as he hoped.”

Ivanka Trump has had some victories. Then he lost the job of convincing his father not to withdraw from the Paris climate agreement, which was much more effective in limiting an executive order of religious freedom to abortion and reproductive problems, reducing many other possibilities Would have infuriated the LGBT community.

Republicans try to move forward

Republicans try to move forward

Republicans try to move forward

Washington (CNN) After a chaotic week for President Donald Trump and his party, Republicans are faced with a fundamental question: now what?

With a new chief of staff, the communications director and the press secretary, the president clearly seeks to “hit the reset button,” by his former chief of staff, Reince Priebus, described in Wolf Blitzer Friday.

Meanwhile, GOP leaders on both sides of the Capitol clearly indicate they are willing to consider a number of issues and agenda items this fall, such as taxes, border security, budget, spending accounts and more – and even Trump administration officials echo this call.

Perhaps there is still movement coming in front of staff, but on the front of the agenda – despite Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, expressing in the early hours of Friday morning that he is the Time to go after the failed vote on health care – President does not seem prepared to restart.

“Unless Republican senators are totally absent, repeal and replace is not dead! Make another vote before voting on any bill!” Twitter Saturday afternoon.

Sunday morning he was asked if this statement represents the official policy of the White House, a senior adviser to Trump proposed “yes.”

“Well, I think … yes, and I think what you see is the president who simply reflects the mood of the people.” Look and sound American public opinion and find out what is the most important issue for them At the moment, and it’s health care, “said Mick Mulvaney, director of the Office of Management and Budget, Jake Tapper in the” State of the Union “on CNN.

Another Trump man, former campaign director Corey Lewandowski, said the White House will not allow the attempt to repeal and replace Obamacare by telling NBC “Meet the Press” that there are three things to the order of the day. It is a tax reform, which built a wall on the southern border, is repealed and Obamacare, which was not made. ”

But over the weekend, Trump seemed less focused on tax reform or the border wall in the procedural hurdles that threaten these efforts in the Senate – where Republicans can not afford to lose two Of its members if they advance legislation that does not have democratic support.
Trump has called for the removal of the 60-vote requirement to break the legislative blockage in the Senate. This threshold of 60 votes did not apply to medical care because Republicans were working according to budget reconciliation rules requiring a majority of 51 votes.

However, McConnell – recognizing that if Democrats take over the majority in the next election, they could more easily move their own items on the agenda without the GOP support – said he would never have removed legislative obstructionism, disagreeing with Trump, who tweeted several times over Saturday.
