The Greek parliament bought time yesterday, voting for austerity measures in return for a vital 12bn installment of aid that will stave off national bankruptcy for a few months. The 300 deputies must vote again today for laws to implement the 28bn cuts they passed yesterday. Even if they become law, few believe the government is capable of implementing the programme, which involves 2bn in tax rises and 1.19bn in benefits cuts this year, as well as 50bn of privatisations and savings of 3bn from a crackdown on tax evasion over four years. The London Stock Exchange global expansion plans were thrown into disarray yesterday as it was forced to abandon its £4.3bn bid to merge with Canada's TMX group. The LSE scrapped the merger less than 24 hours before a crunch TMX shareholder vote, after early results showed that it failed to win the critical two-thirds level of support required by Canadian law.

Local councils, desperate to save money, are axing lollipop men and women across the country. But now concerned parents are fighting back . Bill, says Nicole Gosling, a mother at Southfield primary school in Acton, west London, is a blessing. In fact he's "more than that, he's vital.

The art of personal branding

Back in 1997, before the days of social media, management thinker, Tom Peters, introduced us to the idea of personal branding. In a seminal piece published in Smart Company, called The Brand Called You, Peters said we had all now become CEOs of our own companies. "You don't belong to any company for life and your chief affiliation isn't to any particular function," he said. "You're not defined by your job title and you're not confined by your job description. You’re every bit as much a brand as Nike, Coke, Pepsi, or the Body Shop. To start thinking like your own favorite brand manager, ask yourself the same question the brand managers at Nike, Coke, Pepsi, or the Body Shop ask themselves: What is it that my product or service does that makes it different?" Personal branding has now moved into the mainstream with the the explosion of social media, with people putting their profiles on LinkedIn, Facebook and Twitter and the financial crisis putting…

French finance minister Christine Lagarde was confirmed as the new head of the International Monetary Fund last night, the first woman to be appointed to the role. Lagarde’s first move last night was to urge the Greek opposition party to support the government in pushing through a new austerity plan. JAPAN’S industrial production rose at the fastest pace in more than 50 years, led by car makers as they restored operations at plants after a record earthquake and tsunami on the 11th of March. Factory output increased 5.7% in May from April, the biggest gain since 1953, the Trade ministry said in Tokyo today. THE RISK that lawmakers will fail to reach an agreement on the U.S. debt ceiling may be underestimated by financial market participants, said Alan Binder, a former Federal Reserve vice chairman. Democrats and Republicans have been negotiating to find a way to cut the long term deficit and raise the nation’s debt ceiling. Moody’s and S&P said that failure to reach…

当我看到你的着装,我就知道你的工作是…

别致,典雅,休闲,原始,有时令人震惊,衣服始终在工作场所处于统治的地位。 如果衣服是一个位于生存和舒适之前的问题,它同时也是一个根深蒂固的社会规则。 着装的方式可以提示关于某人的社会阶层,性格,口味,宗教或习惯。 在一些行业,因为卫生或安全原因或仅仅是传统的原因,着装有统一的标准,比如医生或律师的服装。 除了这些特殊情况,没有关于必须在工作场所遵守的明确的衣服规则。 然而,在潜意识里,衣服的选择总是出现在工作场所。例如:“我可以穿什么”也许是有人在专业面试前的第一个问题。 在工作时穿着朋克风格或百慕大风格,是决不适当的。但是,为什么不呢?毕竟,在接受面试的同时,也是更好地了解一个可能的同事,是不是这样呢?那么,为什么我们要“伪装”我们自己,让我们与他人一样?如下是一些很好的理由。 首先,你永远不知道谁会面试你。所以,你不知道他们的喜好,因此最好是穿着中立 - 不要冒险。 想象会发生什么...如果一个对乡村音乐“过敏”的招聘者,在面对穿上条纹裤子和一顶牛仔帽的面试者时,会有什么感觉? 招聘歧视是在今天的工作场所最常见和最重要的事件之一。如果衣服不是在禁止歧视的标准内,那么不幸的是,他们至少可以让你知道,你从属于不被喜欢的某一特定群体。 在面试时选择适当的衣服,也可以解释并说服招聘人员你的职业化。领带与西服在西方工作场所是常见的,人们更多地穿这些衣服,而不是那些随便的衣服。事实上,即使“你不能凭外表判断内在”,但外表在日常工作中真是非常重要。 但问题是,衣服不仅仅是被用于面试。虽然可能没有明文规定,但员工往往被期望努力穿出公司的文化。 有些人不明白这个想法,考虑到衣服的选择是个人自由的问题,是人格的一部分。不幸的是,这也能让公司的声誉处于危险之中。 当然,衣服的约束取决于公司,同一个公司内员工的着装可以在不同的部门内,而有所不同。例如当人们与​​客户一起工作时,他们需要对穿着的方式小心。这是关系到信任和信誉的问题。 关于打扮自由的辩论从来没有停止过,并常常在工作中让员工担心。 最近,我们注意到随着“休闲星期五”的出现,员工可以“衣着草率”。特别是,这种做法在90年代出现在加州的公司,现正蔓延到其他国家,尤其是在欧洲。 根据这一做法,员工可以在每星期五穿着轻松。如果这种做法现在真的常见,这种习惯也有争议。 在好的方面,休闲星期五是一种手段,为反抗阶层和异化。员工可以看到彼此双方在真实生活中的样子,感觉更舒服而去了解对方。当有工作压力时,当然,任何建立社会关系的想法都是一个好主意。 这意味着员工可以在此环境中展示他们自己的真正个性。这是一种方式来显示你真正是谁,你的爱与恨,从这个角度来看,工作可以在生活中拥有一个新的位置。 在不好的方面,一些人认为(或已注意到)的穿着休闲的方式会导致在工作中放松。也许原因之一,也是因为这种做法发生在周末前的星期五。 此外,衣服可以提示一个人的故事背景和社会阶层。它可以创建新的紧张局势或歧视,当然,歧视不会发生在领带与西服。顺便说一句,在学校里,让学生穿着制服的主要动机是,可以防止嫉妒,甚至是蔑视。 尽管这显然是中性的主题,但是比起多点衣服是否比条纹衣服目前更流行,在工作场所选择衣服的问题显然是更重要。 Mylene Grelliier

France offered a radical solution Monday for banks to roll over some Greek debt for 30 years as the Greek government fought for political support of its five-year austerity plan to avert bankruptcy. JAPAN’s retail sales fell at a slower pace than economists estimated in May, adding to signs that the worst of the post-disaster downturn in the world’s third-largest economy may be over. Sales slid 1.3% from a year earlier, the smallest drop since the March 11th earthquake, and much lower than the 2.2% predicted decline. US HOME prices probably decreased in April, showing the housing market remains an obstacle for the US recovery, economists said before a report today. Property values in 20 cities fell 4% from April 2010, the biggest year-on-year drop since November 2009, according to a survey of 30 economists by Bloomberg News.
