Freshfields threatens to fine partners for ‘inappropriate behaviour’

first_imgPartners at Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer face potential earnings penalties if they act inappropriately, in what the firm says is an ongoing drive ‘to improve behaviour and inclusiveness’.The magic circle firm revealed today that it has set up a conduct committee to ‘drive culture change’ and confirmed that partners could face a 20% earnings deduction for bad behaviour.The news comes after Freshfields partner Ryan Beckwith was sanctioned by the Solicitors Disciplinary Tribunal after he went home with a junior colleague following an alcohol fuelled work event.Beckwith, who was fined £35,000, was found to have failed to act with integrity and to behave in a way that maintains the trust the public places in the provision of legal services.Edward Braham, senior partner at Freshfields, said: ‘We are committed to improving behaviour and inclusiveness. For more than a year we have been running a global behaviours programme to drive culture change, which includes reviewing and adjusting our HR processes, governance and systems across the firm.‘We want to ensure that positive behaviour is consistently valued and that inappropriate behaviour is called out and acted upon. The plans for a conduct committee and protocol are part of this ongoing programme across the firm.’last_img read more

Tyson Fury’s incredible diet of six meals a day including CURRY which helped body transformation ahead of Wilder rematch

first_img Travel Diary // Vietnam 2017 Omg this is awesome 🙂 Amazing movies best funny animals TYSON FURY’S body transformation ahead of his rematch with Deontay Wilder is down to a diet of six meals a day including a wholesome CURRY.The British heavyweight boxer showed off his new bulky physique in an Instagram post, with the Gypsy King set to rock in to Las Vegas on February 22 at 19st.Tyson Fury just posted this image on Instagram showing off his bulky physique as he looks in powerful shape weeks before his Deontay Wilder rematchCredit: Instagram/TysonFuryIt will be the heaviest he has been since his comeback fight against Sefer Seferi after 18 months out of the sport battling mental health issues.And the 31-year-old Lineal champ believes he finally has the recipe for revenge over Wilder after snapping up UFC chef and Conor McGregor nutritionist George Lockhart.The naturally gifted 6ft 9in ex-unified champ has always appeared to play fast and loose with the science of the sport.Friend and camp manager Timothy Allcock was also his personal cook ahead of the December 2018 draw and peanut butter chicken was on the menu almost every night.Apple cranberry stuffed porklion, with butternut squash, quinoa, walnuts, and spinach is a favourite for dinnerCredit: InstagramTyson Fury still gets his intake of meat and fish – but it’s cooked to perfectionCredit: InstagramThe nutritionist even makes cauliflower look appetisingCredit: InstagramFighting man Fury showed little interest in the diet fads and micro meals that come in and out of fashion among fighters and celebrities.But he has handed over the pots and pans to former US marine and MMA fighter Lockhart in his efforts to finally fry the Bronze Bomber on February 22 in Las Vegas.At the start of the camp, Lockheart rustled up salmon cakes with spicy jalapenos, cilantro and Greek yogurt dressing for the 19st powerhouse, and made the dish look sensational.The expert cook even managed to make Christmas stinkers Brussels sprouts look appetising in one social media post. Fury’s tastebuds would have been left tingling by Sriracha honey salmon laid out on a bed of quinoa and Greek rice and skewered chicken with tzatziki sauce was probably a big hit for the fighter.The heavyweight boxer is encouraged to wolf down Dijon,maple syrup, and greek yogurt dip with flaxseed lavish, black bean brown basmati puree, spinach, lemon juice, wrapped and seared with prosciuttoCredit: InstagramTyson Fury has previously hired in his own artisan butcher to load up on meat before fightsTeam Fury were purring over a dish of strawberry and mango salsa with tomato and cilantro rice and chilli bean shrimp patty.And the once 28st food lover was allowed to pig out on a stunning pork dish of apple and cranberry stuffed loin with butternut squash, quinoa, walnuts, and spinach and topped with a citrus avocado vinaigrette.With Fury deep in sparring sessions at the end of January, his calorie intake and energy would have been boosted by a meaty serving of dijon maple syrup seared wild salmon with rosemary, garlic, roasted sweet potatoes, and tomato, spinach and bean chilli.Lockhart even manages to make cauliflower appetising by jazzing it up with hummus patties with cilantro lime shrimp and rice, with macadamia nut, avocado, cilantro, lime sauce.And Fury might be able to deal with the terrifying American banger a little easier after scoffing a healthy version of sausages.The Morecambe man had apple and chicken sausage with sweet potatoes, spinach quinoa, cooked in chicken broth with a side of baked kale chips and avocado.Even Fury’s favourite, a curry, makes the list, with Lockhart keen to make sure the boxer gets his red meat intake just right ahead of the Wilder rematch.Tyson Fury is set to come in at 19st for the Wilder rematchCredit: InstagramSriracha honey salmon is on the menu for the Gypsy KingCredit: InstagramTyson Fury is in camp – but not without his nutritionist George LockhartCredit: InstagramTyson Fury shows off powerful sparring routine and has some fun People Slammed By Massive Waves 4 Funny Moments Of Footballcenter_img 10 INCREDIBLE Space Launch Failures!

Good effort trying to be objective in this article. I would like to give a constructive feedback which could help in clearing things up.1. It is mentioned that planting trees in village common lands will have negative affects socially and ecologically. There is no need to even have to agree or disagree with it, because, you also mentioned the fact that Cauvery Calling aims to plant trees only in the private lands of the farmers. So, plantation in the common lands doesn’t come into the picture.2.I don’t see that the ecologists are totally against this project, but just they they have some concerns, mainly in terms of what species of trees will be planted. And because there was no direct communication between the ecologists and Isha Foundation, it was not possible for them to address the concerns. As you seem to have spoken with an Isha spokesperson, if you could connect the concerned parties, it would be great, because I see that the ecologists are genuinely interested in making sure things are done the right way.May we all come together and make things happen.Rare Amazon bush dogs caught on camera in BoliviaCarrot1 Feba very good iniciative to be fallowed by the ranchers all overSponsored Article published by Erik Hoffner Animals, Critically Endangered Species, Gorillas, Great Apes, Happy-upbeat Environmental, Illegal Trade, Logging, Poaching, Wildlife Crime, Wildlife Trade center_img September 24 marks World Gorilla Day, when humanity celebrates one of its closest relatives.All species of gorillas are critically endangered, but that does not mean there’s no hope for these animals.New populations have recently been discovered, and programs to care for orphaned and injured ones are growing.

Visit our Great Apes series for more information and news on these and other great apes.East Africa’s mountain gorilla population now numbers more than 1,000Mountain gorilla infant. Photo courtesy of the Dian Fossey Gorilla Fund.According to the results of a census released in May 2018, the mountain gorilla (Gorilla beringei beringei) population in East Africa’s Virunga Mountains numbered 604 as of June 2016, up from from 480 in 2010. The population hit an all-time low of 242 individuals in 1981. The mountain gorilla is a subspecies of the eastern gorilla with two distinct sub-populations: one in the Virunga Mountains and another in Uganda’s Bwindi Impenetrable National Park. A census conducted in 2011 found approximately 400 gorillas living in Bwindi Impenetrable National Park, meaning that the total number of mountain gorillas is now believed to be more than 1,000 individuals.

Image by Rhett Butler for Mongabay.An investigation found that the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC)’s environment ministry has handed over control of three logging concessions in Congo Basin rainforest to Chinese-owned logging companies. Two of these concessions are located in a massive peatland – the largest in the tropics – that was discovered last year. Fourteen more concessions are expected to be awarded to companies in the coming months. The DRC government is also reportedly planning to declassify large portions of Salonga and Virunga national parks to allow oil exploration. Virunga is one of the last bastions of critically endangered mountain gorillas.

Image by Terence Fuh Neba/WWF Central African Republic.A study led by Wildlife Conservation Society researchers pulled together wildlife survey data collected between 2003 and 2013 at 59 sites in five countries across western Central Africa, and found that more than 361,000 western lowland gorillas and almost 129,000 central chimpanzees (Pan troglodytes troglodytes) inhabit these forests — about 30 percent more gorillas and 10 percent more chimpanzees than previously estimated.

Photo by Rhett A. ButlerGreat ape poaching, which supplies growing urban and rural bushmeat markets, is now at crisis levels across Central Africa, and despite conservationists’ efforts, is showing no sign of slowing down. Vast networks of logging roads, modern weapons, cell phones, cheap motorized transportation, and high demand for wild meat in urban centers is driving the booming bushmeat market. Africa’s great ape sanctuaries rescue some survivors, and active outreach to local communities offer a partial solution. Educational programs for children and adults, teaching the value of great apes, are seen as essential.

Meanwhile, only about 3,800 Critically Endangered Grauer’s gorillas remain in their DRC homeland. But now, DRC women are overcoming their own difficulties, and with a novel assist from international conservation organizations, are coming to the rescue of Congo’s great apes.GRACE caregiver Aldegonde Saambili tends to a newly orphaned Grauer’s gorilla.

They are probably six, seven or eight behind the big boys. That is just being realistic.“I know people are saying it is a massive improvement but that’s only on what they had last year.“But they are still behind the likes of Man City and United, not just in spending but in the quality they have brought in.” TagsTransfersAbout the authorPaul VegasShare the loveHave your saylast_img read more

(Photo by Streeter Lecka/Getty Images)Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim star outfielder Mike Trout might just be the best player in baseball. A first-round draft pick out of Millville (N.J.) High School in 2009, Trout never attended college. He had been committed to East Carolina but eschewed the college route to begin his promising pro career. Apparently, the 23-year-old Trout has adopted Duke as his college basketball program of choice. Trout’s Blue Devils will take on Utah tomorrow in the Sweet 16, and he decided to have some spring training fun at the expense of his Utah alum teammate, 1B/DH C.J. Cron. Still can’t believe Utah alum @CCron24 would root against his team !! #DukeNation pic.twitter.com/TidR1szKuO— Mike Trout (@Trouty20) March 26, 2015The Blue Devils are definitely favored tomorrow night, but it remains to be seen whether Trout or Cron will have the last laugh in the Angels’ locker room.last_img read more
