Keita needs to kick on or face Klopp axe – Pundit

first_img Keita, who signed for Liverpool in 2017, joined a year later but a string of small injuries have dictated his Anfield career to date. The Guinea international has shown glimpses of his talent in short bursts, before heading to the treatment table. Indeed, he has missed key games such as last season’s Champions League final and the UEFA Super Cup showdown. Speaking to Football Insider, Mills insisted next season could be “make or break” for Keita under Klopp. “Jurgen Klopp will have the luxury of looking round at his players,” Mills said. “Once they have got the six points that they need they can start to drop one or two players in. He won’t make wholesale changes but he will look at one or two and give them an opportunity to prove themselves ahead of next season. “It is a fresh start for a lot of players. Some may relish playing under a little less pressure. “I think it is make a break for Keita next season. He needs to make a real impact if he is going to stay at Liverpool long-term. “He has had enough time to settle in now and get used to his surroundings, teammates and the way that Klopp works. “If he has not grasped that by next season and is not really pushing to be in the first team week in, week out, he might not be the right fit.” Liverpool’s midfield will undergo changes in the coming months, which could allow Keita to step up. However, youngster Curtis Jones made his Premier League debut in December and could also fight for more game time. read also:Klopp has no favorite player: Naby Keita Indeed, that could be the case if Liverpool are allowed to experiment after clinching the league title early. The Reds could win the Premier League against Everton on Sunday if Manchester City lose to Arsenal on Wednesday.

What’s the plan?

first_img 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa has talked earnestly about school reform for two years. And Los Angeles has listened – hungry for some hope in the face of years of failure. The mayor lost his bid for partial control of the Los Angeles Unified School District in court, but now he has full control of the school board itself within reach. That’s why he must spell out right now what he intends to do if he wins and demonstrate that his school board candidates and board members are 100 percent behind his plan. The public’s patience is waning. The time for abstract concepts about education reform is over. Teachers, parents and voters deserve to know what’s at stake in this election. Everyone knows what we’ve got with the LAUSD – decades of mediocrity – but we don’t know how Villaraigosa intends to change that. The debate on school governance has gone on for three decades, and little has changed. Centralized authority, clusters, mini-districts – the results are the same: high dropout rates, low student achievement. Parents are as disconnected from the schools as ever. Teachers are still underpaid, and there’s still a bloated bureaucracy. There’s still no accountability. Nothing has changed because, for all the debate over governance, it’s a policy problem. So this would be the time for the mayor to lay out his reform plan in detail. He doesn’t just need to win this election; he needs a mandate for changing the culture of the LAUSD from top to bottom. We’ve heard about cluster schools. We’ve heard about the six pillars of school excellence. We’ve heard about accountability. They’re great abstract concepts, but what – exactly – will he do to achieve that? Surely the mayor and his educational-reform team have a plan. Surely they know the steps they are going to take if they win a majority. We don’t need a secret plan; we need a public debate. We want to hear the mayor’s school board members, Monica Garcia and Yolie Flores Aguilar, and his two runoff candidates, Tamar Galatzan and Richard Vladovic, declare they are in full support of the mayor’s plan. Will teachers be empowered to raise the educational bar – and their rate of pay? Will parents become partners in their children’s education? How will the curricula change? And where’s the money coming from to operate those safe, small, clean schools and to keep kids in school and out of gangs? Villaraigosa stayed pretty much in the background in the primary election campaign. Now it’s time for him to put his political capital on the line and sell his plan to a public fed up with low-performing schools. Los Angeles cannot afford another generation of half-steps, failures and timid leadership.last_img read more

The Tortoise and the Hare: Profitable vs. Unprofitable Software IPOs

first_imgWhy Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… Editors Note: This is the first of a four-part content series ReadWriteWeb is producing in partnership with Tableau Software, where we examine interesting data sets relevant to technology trends today. You can use Tableau Public to create interactive visualizations like this and publish them to your own blog, web sites, or anywhere online. You also can embed this (or any other Tableau Public) visualization on your own site.As Tableau has shown previously, software IPOs have been few and far between in last decade; only 77 companies went public between 2001 and 2009, while 174 software IPOs were seen between 1998 and 2000 alone. A new data visualization from Tableau embedded blow reveals that in the short term, unprofitable companies that go public tend to perform better than profitable IPOs.Below is an interactive chart produced by Tableau; the orange and blue lines represent the average returns of unprofitable and profitable software IPOs over time since the beginning of their offering. The selection boxes near the upper-right corner allow you to narrow the chart to specific decades of data, and using the slider below that allows you to focus the range of days since IPO. If you adjust the slider to near day 600, you will see that at this point the companies which were profitable at the time of their IPO finally surpass the unprofitable ones.Powered by TableauIt seems that unprofitable companies (roughly 37% of sampled companies) see an initial boost from returns after their IPO, reaching 86% returns in their first year. However, after about a year and a half, these companies run out of steam and linger around the 100% before plummeting around day 666 (an unfortunate coincidence, surely). Profitable companies, on the other hand, see slower but steadier return growth, taking two years to reach levels their unprofitable counterparts reached in just one. Pulling the date range slider out further, we can see that profitable companies continue to prosper for several years after their IPO while unprofitable companies see much less and much slower growth compared to their first few years on the market. The lessons learned here is that while going public may be an attractive solution to an unprofitable startup company, its not a long term one. Much like the hare from the classic children’s fable The Tortoise and the Hare, unprofitable IPOs, on average, have a great start only to eventually be surpassed by the slow and steady tortoises that are profitable IPOs. The data visualization embedded above is provided by Tableau Software, which today released its new free product, Tableau Public, allowing for the creation and sharing of unqiue, rich, interactive data applications.“It’s a way a blogger or writer can give their readers exactly the content they want,” says Tableau. “No plug-ins or programming skills are required for either creating the viz or having it render in a browser.

At times, unprofitable startups go public in hopes of reversing their situation, but most of the time IPOs come from the profitable startups looking to expand their value. Based on some fascinating new data visualization tools released today from Tableau Software(see note below), an intriguing trend has emerged among profitable and unprofitable IPOs.

The game goes on even after retirement

first_imgWhen Anil Kumble walks out as IPL Royal Challengers Bangalore captain again in April – yes, it’s a possibility, though Vijay Mallya is yet to choose his team – he would be establishing a unique record of playing representative cricket as president of a state association affiliated with the BCCI.Kumble can, anyway, be categorised as an ‘active’ player as he captained India at the Hong Kong International Cricket Sixes this month, even though he has quit Test, ODI and Twenty20 International formats. Probably no player has ever been elected to head an association so soon – just two years and 49 days – after his retirement. So, either ways, Kumble has set a new benchmark.And as the cherry on his KSCA cake, Kumble’s cricketer friends Javagal Srinath (secretary), Venkatesh Prasad and Roger Binny (both vice-presidents), Sujith Somasundar and Vijay Bharadwaj (both managing committee members) have also won, which makes it a virtual clean sweep by the players’ group.In the past, there have been many Test/first-class players who had gone on to hold administrative posts, but all of them achieved that feat well after their retirement. Delhi’s Ram Prakash Mehra (BCCI and DDCA president), Fateshsinh Rao Gaekwad (BCCI and Baroda president), Maharaja Vijaya Ananada ‘Vizzy’ of the United Provinces (BCCI chief), Ghulam Ahmed (BCCI secretary), Syed Mohammad Hadi (Hyderabad secretary), Niranjan Shah (BCCI secretary), M.P. Pandove (Punjab secretary and BCCI treasurer) and the new Andhra Pradesh chief minister Kiran Kumar Reddy (ex-Hyderabad Ranji player) are just a few ones to name.advertisementIt’s not just players, but even officials who often hold more than one post, which at times poses a conflict-of-interest situation. BCCI’s chief administrative officer Ratnakar Shetty is also treasurer of the Mumbai Cricket Association while board joint secretary Sanjay Jagdale is also secretary of the Madhya Pradesh Cricket Association.The most curious case is that of board secretary and presidentelect N Srinivasan as he is not just president of the Tamil Nadu Cricket Association, but also holds the top post of the All India Chess Federation, besides being the owner of the IPL Chennai Super Kings franchise. M.P. Pandove is BCCI treasurer as well as Punjab secretary.Rajeev Shukla is a BCCI vice president and secretary of the Uttar Pradesh Cricket Association. Similarly, Arun Jaitley, Shivlal Yadav, Arindam Ganguly, K Srikkanth (chairman of national selection committee and brand ambassador of IPL Chennai), Lalchand Rajput, Jyotiraditya Scindia and Anurag Thakur are among the many officials holding posts that can be questioned as they may pose conflict of interests at some stage.The other aspect of the current crop of immediately-retired players is that they are into multiple activities, which make them extremely busy and occupied. They are the true ‘allrounders’ of the modern age, and here one doesn’t refer to someone who bats and bowls with distinction.Kumble, for instance, is chairman of the BCCI’s National Cricket Academy (NCA) and is also a member of the athlete commission of the World Anti-Doping Agency. He also writes a newspaper column, and runs a company along with his brother. Srinath is another busy man, being an ICC match referee. Besides, he turns up as television expert every now and then, and also writes a column. Prasad was till recently the bowling coach of the Indian team as well as of the IPL Chennai Super Kings. He appears as an expert on television and thus has his hands full as well.Samosas to jostle with KFC at Kotla during WCKFC and Pizza Hut have secured the official license to sell their products during next year’s cricket World Cup, but fans in Delhi who can’t afford these don’t have to worry. They will have the option of buying cholebhature, samosas and chaat etc. during the four matches at the Ferozeshah Kotla.When officials of the International Cricket Council (ICC) visited Kotla on Monday, DDCA officials asked them if local vendors can put up stalls to cater to the thousands of spectators who usually throng the venue. “They said that until the vendors don’t sell the same stuff as KFC and Pizza Hut, they would be allowed to sell local snacks like samosas and chole-bhature etc. But the ICC officials said that they can’t do branding, implying that they can’t put up boards and sell the same food/snacks as KFC and Pizza Hut,” a DDCA official told MAIL TODAY.However, ICC’s official beverage partner Pepsi, will not be allowed to sell packaged water inside the stands. The Delhi Police officials, who joined the ICC inspection team, said that they won’t allow plastic bottles due to security reasons. The police also told the inspection team that they won’t allow spectators to take any articles inside the stadium without getting them scanned. “They said X-Ray machines will have to be installed at the gates. So, we might either buy X-Ray machines or take them on rent,” the official said.advertisementLike in the Commonwealth Games, volunteers will play a crucial role in the World Cup. “The ICC has said that it will provide attractive volunteer kits – track suits, caps, waist pouch etc. It’s not known how many volunteers will be deputed at each venue, but the officials said that they would be young and in sufficient numbers,” he informed. One only hopes that DDCA officials refrain from deputing their kids and relatives, like they usually do during international matches.The visit of the ICC team, which included a few BCCI officials, ended with the DDCA hosting a dinner at a five-star hotel. “One can understand that we were being good hosts by treating them to drinks and good food. But what surprised many was the DDCA presenting each of the 29 ICC members with expensive gifts. What was the need of giving these gifts? What was the DDCA trying to achieve? Defies logic, really,” he said.BCCI can learn a lot from PatelAnil Kumble and Co’s ascension to the Karnataka State Cricket Association (KSCA) throne might not have been as smooth had Brijesh Patel not decided to opt out. Patel, who turned 58 on Wednesday, had served KSCA for 12 years as secretary.”We achieved a lot but could not do much in the last three years due to a fractured mandate,” Patel told MAIL TODAY, referring to the election three years ago when Srikanta Wadiyar was elected president and his group clinched more seats than Patel.”The KSCA is in good hands [of Kumble & Co].By deciding to not to contest, we have set an example for various sports bodies, including the BCCI,” stressed Patel.When asked to point out his achievements, Patel said: “Overall, we made the facilities better. We took the game to mofussil areas and built the infrastructure there. We also contributed to the BCCI’s National Cricket Association.”Another significant step that Patel took was to tweak the KSCA constitution, making it easier for cricketers to get into administration and keep the politicians at bay. “Now, for example, even Vijay Mallya can’t be elected as a KSCA office bearer. Only the 1,300 members and 229 clubs in Bangalore can vote,” he pointed out.last_img read more

It’s not all the time easy. But, all the time, it’s important to analyse the games and not just to look at the ranking in the table.”If we analyse it since the beginning of the season, we’ve had fantastic games and performances sometimes without consistency.” TagsTransfersAbout the authorPaul VegasShare the loveHave your saylast_img read more
