first_imgEXCLUSIVE: The average gender pay gap between reward and benefits professionals currently stands at £24,100, according to research by Employee Benefits.The Salary survey 2017, which surveyed 249 HR, benefits and reward professionals in November-December 2016, also found that male respondents earn an average basic annual salary of £78,600, compared to female respondents’ average basic salary of £54,500.In part, this may be due to the lack of male respondents in benefits or reward analyst or administrator roles, which are lower paid than manager and director roles.As in 2014, the job with the most pronounced gender pay gap is benefits/reward director or head with a £21,700 difference between male and female respondents. This is a rise on the £17,461 difference we identified three years ago.Benefits and reward managers have a much smaller, although not insignificant, gender pay difference of £4,000 a year.The overall average annual basic salary for reward and benefits professionals is £62,000.

first_imgUpdated graphic on the prison riot in Brazil where 56 inmates were killed and 144 escaped. AFPAn attack by members of one crime gang on rival inmates touched off a riot at a prison in the northern state of Amazonas, leaving at least 56 dead, including several who were beheaded or dismembered in the worst bloodshed at a Brazilian prison since 1992.Authorities said the riot that raged from Sunday afternoon into Monday morning grew out of a fight between two of the country’s biggest crime gangs over control of prisons and drug routes in northern Brazil.In a separate incident Monday evening, four inmates were killed at another Amazonas prison. Police were investigating whether there was a connection between the mass killings at the Anisio Jobim Penitentiary Complex and the later ones at Unidade Prisional do Puraquequara.Amazonas authorities initially reported 60 dead in the Anisio Jobim prison in Manaus, but the state public security secretary’s office later reduced that figure to 56. Officials also said 112 inmates escaped during the riot.There were 1,224 inmates in the prison, which was built to hold 592, Amazonas state public security’s office said. The prison is run by a private company that is paid according to the number of inmates.Twelve prison guards were held hostage by the inmates during the riot, though none was injured.“This is the biggest prison massacre in our state’s history,” Public Security Secretary Sergio Fontes said at a news conference. “What happened here is another chapter of the war that narcos are waging on this country and it shows that this problem cannot be tackled only by state governments.”Fontes confirmed that many of the dead had been beheaded. Judge Luis Carlos Valois, who negotiated the end of the riot with inmates, said he saw many bodies that had been quartered.“I never saw anything like that in my life. All those bodies, the blood,” Valois wrote on Facebook.It was the largest death toll during a Brazilian prison riot since the killing of 111 inmates by police officers in the Carandiru penitentiary in Sao Paulo in 1992. Police said they acted in self-defense then.Two other prisons in Manaus also reported riots since Sunday. At one, 72 prisoners escaped, including an inmate who posted a picture of himself on Facebook as he left. Amazonas police were also looking for any links between those two incidents and the riot at Anisio Jobim.Authorities said that of the 184 inmates who escaped Amazonas prisons the last two days, only 40 had been recaptured.Fontes said the inmates at Anisio Jobim made few demands to end the riot, saying that hinted at a killing spree organized by members of a local gang, the Family of the North, against those of the First Command of the Capital that is based in Sao Paulo.Valois said that during the negotiations at Anisio Jobim, inmates asked only “that we did not transfer them, made sure they were not attacked and kept their visitation” rights.Authorities said officers found a hole in a prison wall through which weapons entered the building. A policeman was wounded in exchange of gunfire with the inmates. Several firearms were found when police searched the prison after the riot.Jose Vicente da Silva, a former national public security secretary, said the incidents in Manaus were a result of Brazil’s severe recession and poor management of the prison system.“Since 2014 homicides in prisons of Amazonas are double the national average, and last year they cut their public security budget by 50 percent due to austerity measures. This incident is a repetition in a bigger scale,” Da Silva told The Associated Press. “Every year 500 inmates die in Brazilian prisons. With the current economic crisis and the budget cuts, the gangs get even bolder.”The First Command, nationally known as PCC, is the most powerful drug and prison gang in Brazil and it has been trying to extend its reach to northern prisons dominated by the Family of the North. To counter, Family of the North associated with the Red Commando of Rio de Janeiro, the second biggest crime gang in Brazil.To avoid another wave of killings of PCC members, Amazonas authorities said they had relocated 130 inmates to a prison that was opened in 1907 but deactivated in October because of substandard conditions.last_img read more

News By: Barbara Ortutay Facebook Twitter Pinterest LinkedIn ReddIt Email,SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — After years of pressure to crack down on hate and bigotry, Facebook has banned Louis Farrakhan, Alex Jones and other extremists, saying they violated its ban on “dangerous individuals.”The company also removed right-wing personalities Paul Nehlen, Milo Yiannopoulos, Paul Joseph Watson and Laura Loomer, along with Jones’ site, Infowars, which often posts conspiracy theories. The latest bans apply to both Facebook’s main service and to Instagram and extend to fan pages and other related accounts.RELATED: Facebook vows to fight hate speech, but it may be too late for Rohingya MuslimsDecried as censorship by several of those who got the ax, the move signals a renewed effort by the social media giant to remove people and groups promoting objectionable material such as hate, racism and anti-Semitism.Removing some of the best-known figures of the U.S. political extreme takes away an important virtual megaphone that Facebook has provided the likes of Jones, Yiannopoulos and others over the years. But it does not address what might be done with lesser-known figures and those who stay on the margins of what Facebook’s policies allow.Critics praised the move but said there is more to be done on both Facebook and Instagram.“We know that there are still white supremacists and other extremist figures who are actively using both platforms to spread their hatred and bigotry,” said Keegan Hankes, senior research analyst for the Southern Poverty Law Center, which tracks hate groups in the U.S.Dipayan Ghosh, a former Facebook executive and an internet policy expert at Harvard, said the ban isn’t as big a step as Facebook appears to be painting it — it’s just enforcing its existing policy.“There will always be more purveyors of hate speech that try to come on these platforms,” he said. “Will advocates have to push year after year just to get (a handful of) individuals off? At this rate it seems likely. And this doesn’t address the problem of what happens at the margins.”Facebook has previously suspended Jones from its flagship service temporarily; this suspension is permanent and includes Instagram. Twitter has also banned Loomer, Jones and Yiannopoulos, though Farrakhan, the leader of the Nation of Islam long known for provocative comments widely considered anti-Semitic, still had an account Thursday. So did Watson, who rose to popularity as editor-at-large at Infowars and has nearly a million followers on the site.Facebook said the newly banned accounts violated its policy against dangerous individuals and organizations. The company says it has always banned people or groups that proclaim a violent or hateful mission or are engaged in acts of hate or violence, regardless of political ideology.It added that when it bans someone under this policy, the company also prohibits anyone else from praising or supporting them.In this case, though, the company said people can speak positively about the six banned individuals as long as what they’re saying otherwise complies with Facebook policies.For years, social media companies have been under pressure from civil rights groups and other activists to clamp down on hate speech on their services. After the deadly white nationalist protests in Charlottesville, Va., in 2017, Google, Facebook and PayPal began banishing extremist groups and individuals who identified as or supported white supremacists.A year later, widespread bans of Jones and Infowars reflected a more aggressive enforcement of policies against hate speech. But Facebook instituted only a 30-day suspension (though Twitter banned him permanently).It is not clear what events led to Thursday’s announcement. In a statement, Facebook merely said, “The process for evaluating potential violators is extensive and it is what led us to our decision to remove these accounts today.”Last month, it extended its ban on hate speech to prohibit the promotion and support of white nationalism and white separatism. It had previously allowed such material even though it has long banned white supremacists.Asked to comment on the bans, Yiannopoulos emailed only “You’re next.”Jones reacted angrily Thursday during a livestream of his show on his Infowars website.“They didn’t just ban me. They just defamed us. Why did Zuckerberg even do this?” Jones said, referring to Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg.Jones called himself a victim of “racketeering” by “cartels.”“There’s a new world now, man, where they’re banning everybody and then they tell Congress nobody is getting banned,” he said.Watson, meanwhile, tweeted that he was not given a reason and that he “broke none of their rules.”“Hopefully, other prominent conservatives will speak out about me being banned, knowing that they are next if we don’t pressure the Trump administration to take action,” he wrote.Farrakhan, Nehlen and Loomer did not immediately return messages seeking comment.Harvard’s Ghosh said kicking off individuals with big followings, such as Jones, goes against Facebook’s commercial interest.“As soon as they kick Alex Jones or Laura Loomer off their platform, it immediately ticks off a huge number of people,” he said.(Associated Press writers Tali Arbel in New York and Michael Kunzelman in Silver Spring, Md., contributed to this story.)

first_img Facebook Comments With a tale about the struggles of a teenager, in which death is like a “game,” the director Sofía Quirós presented on Sunday in Cannes the first feature film from Costa Rica in the history of the contest.“Ceniza Negra,” or “Black Ash,” Quirós’ first feature, tells the story of Selva, a dreamy teenager who lives with her grandfather and her companion in a small Caribbean town. Surrounded by nature, she learns to overcome the death of her mother.Scheduled in the Critics’ Week, the film is the first feature film from Costa Rica projected in the biggest film event in the world. In 2017, Quirós presented a short film, “Selva,” in this section, becoming the first edition of the contest with a Costa Rican presence.“That we are the first film of Costa Rica in Cannes and that the way we have done it is so honest with what we think is a double prize, for the Costa Rican cinema and the independent Latin American cinema,” Quirós told AFP.The filmmaker began to think about the subject of death watching a 5-year-old cousin who lost her mother.“I started to marvel at the naturalness of children, they understand death as a natural process,” said Quirós, a Costa Rican and Argentine national.“Death became a kind of game. She played in cemeteries, to bury things. … She understood death from the game and from a more playful and natural place”.From there, she built the character of Selva, keeping in mind that for “children and adolescents, death can be a magical and healing experience.”To overcome the death of her mother, the girl, played by a magnetic Smachleen Gutiérrez, is immersed in a universe populated with magical elements, like her friend Winter, with whom she performs enigmatic rituals.The starting point to recreate this magical world was the “symbol of the serpent,” which changes skin, and reinforces the idea that children see death as “a natural process of transformation, where we are born, we die, we become something more, in another energy,” reiterated the filmmaker.– A film that is ‘100% feminine’ –Shot in the province of Limón, the exuberant nature of this Caribbean area also plays an important role in the learning of Selva.Through the natural elements, the director sought to show the “evolution of the character in this duel through nature and how this pain goes, this courage, which is assumed throughout the film through the force of nature, from the sea.”The young singer Smachleen Gutiérrez had already starred in the short film “Selva” in 2017, and since then, she has been working with Quirós to maintain a playful and natural side in her performance, and to create a figure “more from childhood than from adolescence.”The fact that the film’s team was mostly female had an influence on the creation of the character.The construction of the strength of the character and the female empowerment of the story has to do with the fact that the genesis of the project was “100% female,” says the director.With regard to this female presence, Quirós believes that emerging Costa Rican cinema “has a particularity, and that it has many women’s films and many women producers” and, although there are also male directors and producers, “the most authentic, most authoritative, most risk-taking stories are being led by women.”The Critics’ Week, whose jury is chaired by the Colombian Ciro Guerra, also includes the short film “Lucía en el limbo,” by Costa Rican Valentina Maurel.

first_imgThe Development Bank of Latin America (CAF) on Friday granted a $500 million credit to Costa Rica to support the country’s fiscal sustainability efforts.The 18-year term financing will improve debt management by covering Costa Rica’s financing needs without having to resort to the local market, which will relieve pressure on interest rates in the country, according to authorities.It is a “source of alternative financing, reducing interest rates, lengthening terms, improving the debt profile, which will result in greater liquidity space for the domestic market,” said Luis Carranza, CAF’s executive president.Carranza signed the loan agreement with the Costa Rican Minister of Finance, Rocío Aguilar. The agreement must be approved by the Legislative Assembly to take effect.“These resources are not debt in addition to what is already programmed in the budget; it is debt that is contracted in better conditions of terms and interest rates,” Aguilar explained at the signing ceremony of the agreement.For his part, President Carlos Alvarado commented that the financing “allows us to alleviate the burden [of debt], lower interest rates and reactivate the economy to generate more employment opportunities.”Alvarado has called the unemployment rate — recently tallied at 11.3% of the economically active population — as the most serious economic problem in Costa Rica.On July 1, the fiscal reform approved last December will come into effect. It replaces the current sales tax with a value-added tax.Both taxes are 13%, but the one that will take effect in July covers additional services that were excluded in the previous tax.The reform was adopted to address the fiscal deficit that reached 6% at the end of 2018.
