(Dhaka Courier (Bangladesh) Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) After a summer of speculation, Welsh forward Gareth Bale has finally completed a world record £85m (100m euros) transfer from Tottenham to Real Madrid. He will earn a reported £300,000 a week after signing a six-year contract. But are sky-high footballers’ wages too much?
Bale’s new contract means that he is about to double the yearly salary of UK Prime Minister David Cameron within just a week of work.
In return Real Madrid will be gaining one of the best players in the world, as they look to return to the summit of European football and win their 10th European Cup.
But at a time when many supporters struggle with rising ticket prices, are footballers’ wages too high?
‘Officer on Special Duty’ is what the government does to punish someone in bureaucracy by taking away his desk. Regardless of whatever the individual in question was supposed to have done, or in many cases, not done, since OSD is often used to settle political or personal scores too. Public money to the tune of Tk151 crores for the upkeep of more than 3,500 public servants sidelined as OSDs over the last decade.
Money for our governments for well over 4 decades has indeed been cheap!!!
A rumour in the recent time is: the government is working on a policy for TV Talk shows and all of a sudden it vanished in the air too. The policy case is similar to the much desired 8th wage board for the Media and as far as politically ominous signs suggest there is little possibility for the current government to announce it. However, if the Government wants to keep the Media happy and secure a bulk of its supports then it should declare the Wage board as rapidly possible.
We desperately want a rise in our pays, don’t we?
Last week: Microsoft officially announced to buy the mobile phone-maker Nokia for £4.6 billion. The global software giant will acquire the Nokia unit that makes mobile phones in a deal expected to be completed in early 2014.
As part of the buyout, 32,000 Nokia employees will transfer to Microsoft, which will also be given a 10-year licensing agreement to use the Finnish firm’s patents.
Outgoing Microsoft boss Steve Ballmer, who announced plans to retire last month, said: “It’s a bold step into the future - a win-win for employees, shareholders and consumers of both companies.”
The mammoth deal is the second in 24 hours in the telecoms sector after UK-based Vodafone last night confirmed the sale of its 45% stake in US firm Verizon Wireless for $130 billion (£84 billion) - providing investors with a £54 billion cash and shares windfall. Nokia, once the world’s biggest mobile phone manufacturer, will now become a telecoms equipment maker, representing a dramatic change in its near 150-year history.
For Microsoft, the deal marks an ambitious attempt to expand its share of the mobile devices market, with commentators saying the firm was too slow to respond to demand and being overtaken by the likes of Samsung and Apple.
