Bush criticises Trump for media bashing

first_imgDonald Trump and George W BushFormer Republican US president George W Bush offered a tacit criticism of his successor Donald Trump Monday, in rare public comments regarding politics and the media.The 43rd president—who had his own battles with the press while in office—rejected Trump’s assertion that the media are the “enemy of the American people.”“I consider the media to be indispensable to democracy. That we need the media to hold people like me to account,” Bush told NBC’s “Today” program.Trump’s inflammatory remarks have been criticized as authoritarian, but the media remains a popular whipping boy for his supporters.Amid wave after wave of leaks from his White House and probing reports on his campaign’s links with Russia, Trump has repeatedly decried the media as “fake news.”Influential Trump aide Steve Bannon is fond of referring to the media as the “opposition party.”Bush responded to that sentiment by saying “power can be very addictive and it can be corrosive, and it’s important for the media to call to account people who abuse their power.”Bush also described Trump’s comments as undercutting America’s efforts to promote democracy and the free press abroad.last_img read more

Indian family branches out with novel tree house

first_imgIn this photograph taken on 4 June branches of a peepal tree (sacred fig tree) are seen protruding from the Kesharwani family`s house in Jabalpur, in the Indian state of Madhya Pradesh. Photo: AFPWhen the Kesharwanis decided to branch out and expand their family home, they came up with a novel way of dealing with an ancient giant fig tree in their garden — they built the house around it.Now the thick trunk of the 150-year-old tree is the central feature of their residence, growing through the middle of the building in the city of Jabalpur.”We are nature lovers and my father insisted that we keep the tree,” said Yogesh Kesharwani, whose parent built the house in 1994 with the help of an engineer friend.”The tree is some 150 years old. We knew it was easy to cut the tree but difficult to grow one like it,” he told AFP.The fig tree, known as peepal in Hindi, is considered sacred by many in India and cutting one down is considered inauspicious.”We believe that 350 million gods and goddesses reside in one peepal tree. The tree is also mentioned in the Geeta,” a Hindu religious text, said Kesharwani.His wife can pray without having to leave home, sitting before the tree in the mornings.The family also wanted to send the message that people can put down roots in the middle of nature without destroying anything.The four-storey building is a local landmark because of its unique facade. Leafy branches jut out from the windows, dwarfing the building and prompting curious looks from passersby.”When the house was first built, engineering students used to come here to try and understand the unique design,” Kesharwani said.The tree has never caused any practical problems to the family, insisted Kesharwani.”We don’t even realise that the tree exists because it doesn’t come in our way. It just stands there silently.”last_img

Netflix Accused of Rigging Executive Bonuses

first_imgThe pension fund alleges that four Netflix executives reaped millions of dollars from the improper bonuses. Ted Sarandos, the chief content officer, is accused of taking $10.5 million. Neil Hunt, the former chief product officer, is alleged to have gotten $12.6 million. Greg Peters, the current chief product officer, is accused of taking $3.2 million. David Hyman, the general counsel, is alleged to have received $800,000.The lawsuit echoes a 2017 article in the Financial Times, which noted the “uncanny accuracy” of Netflix’s projected bonus payments. The article noted that the company established a bonus pool of $18.75 million for three of its executives in 2016. According to regulatory filings, those executives ended up receiving $18.7295 million in bonuses for that year.In response to the Financial Times, Netflix said its executive compensation practices are consistent with federal statutes.“The fact the targets are set during guidance makes them inherently uncertain, and not a foregone conclusion,” the company told the FT. “To hit the target, it requires effort and management skill by the executives. It is also a benefit to the company as we receive a tax deduction.”The shareholder suit was first reported by the Hollywood Reporter. Netflix declined to comment, saying the company would weigh in “at the appropriate time.”Netflix Birmingham Relief Retirement by gmaddaus on Scribd A Netflix shareholder has filed a federal lawsuit accusing the streaming giant of awarding lavish bonuses to top executives.The suit, brought by the City of Birmingham Relief and Retirement System, alleges that Netflix violated tax law by giving “multi-million dollar windfalls” to executives including Ted Sarandos based on performance targets the company knew it was almost certain to achieve.“Through their conduct, Defendants rigged the compensation process, guaranteeing Netflix officers huge cash payments while misleading investors into believing that these payments were justified by attainment of real performance goals,” the suit alleges.Public companies are allowed to deduct salaries for top executives up to $1 million. Above that threshold, compensation may only be deducted if it is based on performance goals. The law requires that the goals be “substantially uncertain” at the time they are set. The Netflix bonuses were based on streaming revenues, which the pension fund alleges were highly predictable once the company knew how many subscribers it had in a given quarter. ×Actors Reveal Their Favorite Disney PrincessesSeveral actors, like Daisy Ridley, Awkwafina, Jeff Goldblum and Gina Rodriguez, reveal their favorite Disney princesses.
