As part of a U.S.-Mexico alliance, staff from the Office of the Indiana Attorney General this month presented a training webinar to Mexican prosecutors. More than 450 participants in locations across Mexico connected via the internet to participate in a two-and-a-half hour interactive video session led by Chief Deputy Attorney General Aaron Negangard and Director of Investigations Harry Dunn.Presented in coordination with the Attorney General Alliance, the training addressed the topic of “Taking the Criminal Case from Complaint to Trial.” As translators provided voiceovers in Spanish, Negangard and Dunn explored the various roles of prosecutors from the points at which they receive notice of criminal allegations through the culmination of court cases.“Beyond maintaining strong relationships with our counterparts in other states, we also work wherever possible to forge professional bonds with peers in other countries,” Attorney General Curtis Hill said. “I’m pleased that these seasoned staff members from our office were able to share their expertise in this manner.”FacebookTwitterCopy LinkEmail
Warburtons’ former commercial director Roz Cuschieri is set to front market-leading gluten-free bread brand Genius, in a move that will pit her against her former employer.Earlier in October, Warburtons confirmed that it was planning to enter the free-from arena with a range of gluten-free products.Cuschieri’s departure was announced in June after spending 12 years at Warburtons. She was replaced by two new appointments to the management board – Jason Uttley as commercial development director and Richard Hayes as marketing director.Genius Foods has meanwhile announced Cuschieri’s appointment as a director, with responsibility for developing the Genius brand in the UK.Since its launch in May 2009, Genius has quickly established itself as the free-from brand leader, based on sales in supermarket retail and a breakthrough into high-street foodservice outlets via Starbucks.

Tag: 夜上海论坛DW What are CEOs at big companies focusing on?
CEOs have underlined that growth will be their top business priority for 2016, according to a recent survey by Gartner, Inc. The 2016 Gartner CEO and senior business executive survey found that despite indications that the global economy is struggling in early 2016, CEOs do not plan to significantly change their priorities. After growth (54 percent), the second and third business priorities are customers (31 percent) and workforce (27 percent).The Gartner CEO and senior business executive survey of 400 senior business leaders in user organizations worldwide was conducted in the fourth quarter of 2015, asking questions about 2016/2017. Most responding organizations were those with annual revenue of $1 billion or more. The survey results show that while business conditions are challenging, CEOs remain confident enough to sanction strategic investments, particularly when it comes to digital business transformation.“The big rise of explicit mentions of the word ‘customer’ was very noticeable in the results of this year’s survey,” says Mark Raskino, vice president and Gartner Fellow. “CEOs seem to be concerned about improving customer service, relationship and satisfaction levels. At the same time, CEOs have become much more concerned about employee issues than a couple of years ago. The emphasis is as much on benefits, retention and training of mainstream staff. It is not constrained only to senior grade ‘talent’ issues.” continue reading » 9SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr
“Airlines have cancelled many international flights and several cruise operators have suspended operations or cancelled trips,” it said. “If you choose to travel internationally, your travel plans may be severely disrupted, and you may be forced to remain outside of the United States for an indefinite timeframe.” Share (CNN) The US State Department on Thursday warned American citizens not to travel abroad due to the coronavirus pandemic, issuing the highest possible level of travel advisory.The Level 4: Do Not Travel advisory “advises U.S. citizens to avoid all international travel due to the global impact of COVID-19.”The State Department urged Americans “in countries where commercial departure options remain available” to “arrange for immediate return to the United States, unless they are prepared to remain abroad for an indefinite period.”The updated advisory also cautioned US citizens living abroad to “avoid all international travel.”“Many countries are experiencing COVID-19 outbreaks and implementing travel restrictions and mandatory quarantines, closing borders, and prohibiting non-citizens from entry with little advance notice,” it said. Tweet Sharing is caring! 85 Views no discussions Share InternationalLifestyleNews US State Department Warns US Citizens Not to Travel Abroad by: – March 20, 2020 Share Four sources told CNN earlier on Thursday that Secretary of State Mike Pompeo had approved the Level 4 advisory.Prior to the coronavirus pandemic, the Level 4 travel advisory had been used sparingly for only a handful of countries, including Syria, Iran, Yemen and North Korea. However, as the virus spread around the globe, the department raised the advisory to the top level for a number of additional countries, including China and Mongolia, as well as regions within certain countries.Last week the advisory was raised globally to Level 3: Reconsider Travel “due to the global impact of COVID-19.”A US diplomat overseas said one reason that Level 4 advisory was being considered was that US embassies were increasingly less able to help Americans overseas with consular services, as staff get drawn down.Many factors were feeding into this, the diplomat said, including the wide range of medical capabilities across the globe, which determines how willing some State Department staff may be willing to stay. One indicator US embassies are carefully watching is hospital capacity in their host countries, the diplomat said.Last weekend, the State Department “authorized the departure from any diplomatic or consular post in the world of US personnel and family members who have been medically determined to be at higher risk of a poor outcome if exposed to COVID-19.”Visa services being suspendedDue to the pandemic, the State Department “is suspending routine visa services in most countries,” according to a tweet from the Bureau of Consular Affairs. On Thursday, it announced that its passport agencies would only offer services “for customers with a qualified life-or-death emergency and who need a passport for immediate international travel within 72 hours,” effective Friday.However, hundreds of Americans are already abroad, including in countries which have restricted travel and closed their borders in an effort to contain the outbreak. Many of those who are stranded said they are struggling to get help from the State Department.State Department officials said their colleagues are working around the clock to be as responsive as possible, and US diplomats stationed overseas said they are trying their best, but are struggling because of reduced staffing even as they juggle their own worries about family.

It’s not hard to see why Senegal are Africa’s highest-ranked side. The Teranga Lions should have reached the last 16 at Russia 2018 and should go much further than that this time. A remorseless defence is marshalled by Kalidou Koulibaly, one of the world’s most in-demand centre-backs; it is bolstered by an experienced midfield and, ahead of that, an attack that can work magic. Mane, their captain, needs no introduction but unlike title rivals Egypt, there’s a depth of other players who can share the goals around.There is no more finely-tuned unit in all of Africa; is this, at last, their year?–Follow all the Senegal’s games with #JoyAFCON.
