Les Etats-Unis contre la BNP : silence politique en France

LEVINE/NEWSCOM/SIPA) Mais où sont-ils ? Voici qu’en plein pont de l’Ascension éclate un coup de tonnerre – les Etats-Unis réclameraient à BNP-Paribas, selon le Wall Street Journal, une amende de 10 milliards de dollars pour violation de l’embargo sur Cuba, le Soudan et l’Iran – et pas un ministre sur... le pont, au radios du matin. Où est Montebourg, le défenseur de l’industrie française ? Où est Valls ? Christian Noyer à la rescousse Seul Français à s’être exprimé sur l’affaire, le gouverneur de la Banque de France, Christian Noyer, a timidement rappelé que la banque française avait respecté les réglementations française et européenne, ainsi que celle des Nations unies.

My bit of conjuring may not track down every single attractive name possibility, and it may be a bit quirkier with boys' names than girls. But it is a genuine formula for style, a purely quantitative recipe that yields classic names suited to contemporary tastes at all popularity levels. That last item is what makes the Magic Formula special. I'll detail the alchemy below, but first see what you think of the results. Top 10 Failures Expat Entrepreneurs make in East Africa. This is the first post by Malaika Judd, Mzungu Principal and Mentor A recent weekend white water rafting trip resulting in raft flips, lost paddles, popped shoulder, painful sunburns, and miserably failed sing-a-longs in Kiswahili led us to hashtag #MzunguFail to all our classic Mzungu (foreign person) mistakes on the river.

Top 10 Failures Expat Entrepreneurs make in East Africa

This blogpost is the outcome of a Nile inspired #MzunguFail brainstorm about our experience with expat led startups. At Savannah Fund we focus on startups actively operating in Africa and find local and expat founders often run their operations so differently that they naturally categorize themselves into different pools. Expat entrepreneurs need to realize This Is Africa (#TIA) and not London, NYC, or SF. The following is a list of the top 10+ #MzunguFails we’ve seen over the past year: 1) High Burn Rate. 2) Sitting in the US, UK, or anywhere other than where the startup is focused.

Online past that can shape your future

Recruiters and employers will easily find a candidate’s online trail – what American marketing blogger Seth Godin calls a “backlist”. He likens it to the back catalogue of a recording artist. This highly visible history of an individual’s work and life, compiled by themselves and, more worryingly, by their connections, has a significant impact on how executives should approach their career strategy. Hays, the recruiter, published survey results this year suggesting 45 per cent of job hunters believe past Twitter activity should never be taken into account by prospective employers.


Jobs. Relationship advice. 4 things I wish I’d known about business 15 years ago. Today I thought I’d jot down some of my learnings from the past 15 or so years of running smallish to biggish businesses.
