EU ministers to thrash out bailout plans

first_imgThursday 9 December 2010 8:37 pm Share whatsapp Tags: NULL KCS-content EU leaders will hold a crunch meeting next week to discuss a coordinated plan to tackle the Eurozone debt crisis.Despite signs that volatility in European bond markets is abating, European commissioner for monetary affairs, Olli Rehn, said it was time for Europe to show proper coordination, and throw its weight firmly behind its shared currency.He said: “We have to take well-coordinated action to safeguard stability in the euro area. We will not stop until we have accomplished our mission.”Eurozone finance ministers took no extra action to tackle the crisis this week, saying a €750bn (£628bn) fund was sufficient to deal with Ireland’s bailout and any potential problems spreading to Portugal or Spain.However, EU finance officials have repeatedly warned there is no room for complacency, pointing to a period when markets calmed down over the summer and the subsequent turmoil. The summit, to be held on 16 and 17 December, is supposed to agree on the shape of a permanent mechanism for handling a future crisis.But the discussion will also focus on how to handle the immediate situation. There is growing divergence between Germany and other member states on what measures to take, including over whether euro area bonds make sense, and whether the European Central Bank might buy more distressed debt.France added its voice to Germany’s staunch opposition to the idea of euro bonds yesterday, saying it saw little need for such an instrument, which would effectively mean all 16 Eurozone member states sharing debt issuance and credit risk.Instead, what analysts say could emerge at the summit is a commitment to enlarge, or at least consider enlarging, the €750bn European financial stability facility. center_img More From Our Partners Florida woman allegedly crashes children’s birthday party, rapes teennypost.comAstounding Fossil Discovery in California After Man Looks Closelygoodnewsnetwork.orgSidney Crosby, Alex Ovechkin are graying and frayingnypost.comNative American Tribe Gets Back Sacred Island Taken 160 Years Agogoodnewsnetwork.orgSupermodel Anne Vyalitsyna claims income drop, pushes for child supportnypost.comA ProPublica investigation has caused outrage in the U.S. this weekvaluewalk.comRussell Wilson, AOC among many voicing support for Naomi Osakacbsnews.comPolice Capture Elusive Tiger Poacher After 20 Years of Pursuing the Huntergoodnewsnetwork.orgBrave 7-Year-old Boy Swims an Hour to Rescue His Dad and Little Sistergoodnewsnetwork.orgBiden received funds from top Russia lobbyist before Nord Stream 2 giveawaynypost.comMatt Gaetz swindled by ‘malicious actors’ in $155K boat sale boondogglenypost.comWhy people are finding dryer sheets in their mailboxesnypost.comKiller drone ‘hunted down a human target’ without being told tonypost.com980-foot skyscraper sways in China, prompting panic and evacuationsnypost.comI blew off Adam Sandler 22 years ago — and it’s my biggest regretnypost.comUK teen died on school trip after teachers allegedly refused her pleasnypost.comInside Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis’ not-so-average farmhouse estatenypost.comMark Eaton, former NBA All-Star, dead at by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeMisterStoryWoman Files For Divorce After Seeing This Photo – Can You See Why?MisterStoryMoneyPailShe Was A Star, Now She Works In ScottsdaleMoneyPailTotal PastThe Ingenious Reason There Are No Mosquitoes At Disney WorldTotal PastNoteabley25 Funny Notes Written By StrangersNoteableySerendipity TimesInside Coco Chanel’s Eerily Abandoned Mansion Frozen In TimeSerendipity TimesBetterBe20 Stunning Female AthletesBetterBeHistorical GeniusHe Was The Smartest Man Who Ever Lived – But He Led A Miserable LifeHistorical GeniusMagellan TimesThis Is Why The Roy Rogers Museum Has Been Closed For GoodMagellan TimesElite HeraldExperts Discover Girl Born From Two Different SpeciesElite Herald whatsapp EU ministers to thrash out bailout plans Show Comments ▼last_img read more

Chariot to raise £90m to fund Namibia exploration

first_img Tags: NULL Show Comments ▼ KCS-content whatsapp Chariot to raise £90m to fund Namibia exploration whatsapp Monday 7 March 2011 8:34 pm Share CHARIOT Oil & Gas said yesterday it expects to raise about £90m through a discounted share placing to help fund its exploration programme as it plans to drill its first well in offshore Namibia in late 2011. The Africa-focused oil and gas exploration company said yesterday it has placed about 36m shares at 25p each, an 18 per cent discount to the stock’s Friday close. “The funds will enable Chariot to participate in a minimum of two wells and conduct a further 5,000 square kilometres 3D seismic programme across areas of specific interest in the central blocks,” the company said in a statement. In July of last year, Chariot had said it expected to start production in 2013-14 after drilling its first well in offshore Namibia in 2011. Chariot Oil shares, which have risen 32 per cent since a resources update in January, lost 11.6 per cent to close at 270.5p yesterday.

OnlineHamilton extended his championship lead over team-mate Valtteri Bottas to 69 points after the Finn retired.Behind Max Verstappen’s Red Bull in second, Daniel Ricciardo scored Renault’s first podium since returning to F1 as a constructor in 2016.It was the first F1 race since 2013 at the Nürburgring in Germany and was named the Eifel Grand Prix after a nearby mountain range.The race had been poised for a close fight between Hamilton and Bottas before the second Mercedes hit trouble at the Nurburgring.Hamilton, second on the grid, made a better start than Bottas and dived for the inside at the first corner, pushing him wide, but Bottas held his ground and recovered the lead on the inside of the second corner.That gave Bottas control of the race, but Hamilton pressured him hard and in the end the leader buckled.Bottas handed the advantage back to Hamilton on lap 13, locking a wheel into Turn One and running wide, allowing Hamilton to close in and pass for the lead around the outside of Turn Two.Three laps later, the race fell further into Hamilton’s lap when a virtual safety car allowed him and Verstappen to pit for fresh tyres and retain their positions ahead of Bottas, and two laps after that Bottas retired with a suspected failure of the MGU-H, part of the hybrid system.Although Verstappen stole the point for fastest lap from Hamilton on the last lap of the race, Hamilton’s lead is close to three clear race victories with only six races remaining.

Rugby World Cup 2011: USA’s story

first_img14 Oct 1999: Juan Grobler of the USA is tackled by Nathan Grey and Jason Little of Australia during the 1999 Rugby World Cup Pool E match at Thomond Park in Limerick, Ireland. Australia won the match 55 – 19. \ Mandatory Credit: Ben Radford /Allsport Or click here if you prefer a digital version of the magazineAnd if you’d like 50% off a subscription to Rugby World Magazine click here LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS USA winger Ngwenya evades Bryan Habana to score a try during the 2007 World CupThe Eagles have won just two World Cup matches to date. Alex Goff takes a walk down memory lane…Victories have been hard to come by for the United States of America at the World Cup, but somehow the Eagles have managed to make their mark in other ways.The USA have never entered a World Cup with an expectation of making the quarter-finals – qualifying from a region that includes Canada, Argentina and Uruguay is challenge enough for the Eagles, let alone making the last eight.Along the way, however, they have developed long-standing rivalries. They have played, and lost to, England three times, including a controversial opening game at France in 2007. Their match-ups with Ireland and Australia in 2011 will be the third time they’ve faced those teams too.But even in the RWC matches where they were the distinct underdogs, the Eagles have produced standout moments: a try to remember, a scoreline much closer than expected, or a dramatic finish. The story isn’t always heart-warming – heartbreaking more like – but it is compelling.The USA were invited to the inaugural RWC in 1987, and started their campaign with a 21-18 defeat of Japan in Brisbane. What followed were two heavy losses to Australia and England, and it would be another 16 years before the United States would taste victory again.In 1991 the Americans were soundly beaten by England, New Zealand and Italy – the game against the All Blacks marked the last time the USA have taken on the 2011 World Cup hosts. It was the USA’s toughest World Cup, but notable in part for full-back Ray Nelson’s try against England, putting his World Cup points total at 28, a then Eagles record.Juan Grobler was the only player to score against AustraliaIn 1995 they failed to qualify, losing two very close matches to Argentina in the 1994 qualifiers, but they were back again in 1999. In that tournament the Eagles struggled with bad luck, including an injury to captain Dan Lyle, and heartache.A 27-25 loss to Romania could easily have been a USA victory, but in their last game they did enjoy a special moment. The Eagles lost 55-19 to Australia in Limerick, but in an impressive first half of rugby, a smart pass out to centre Juan Grobler produced a try for the Eagles (right). That try was notable as it was the only one Australia conceded during the entire tournament. Not a victory, to be sure, but a distinct point of pride for the Eagles.Four years later, the USA finally earned their second victory, beating Japan once again, 39-26. That tournament was also notable for the Eagles’ opening match, against Fiji. The 2003 RWC had been criticised for being too one-sided. Where were the close, exciting games? Well, USA v Fiji answered that question and served up a treat. The thriller was brought to a close when the USA scored in the corner, but as the conversion drifted wide the Fijians sneaked it 19-18. Still, both teams revelled in having raised the excitement quotient of the tournament.Two players set new benchmarks in scoring. Mike Hercus recorded 51 points, the most by an Eagle in any tournament, and Kort Schubert scored three tries, including that late one against Fiji.In 2007, the USA surprised many by holding defending champions England to a close 28-10 scoreline in the opening match. It would have been closer but for a yellow card, a ten-minute spell during which England scored two tries. There followed a disappointing display against Tonga that ended in a 25-15 defeat and a bizarre game where Samoa ran out to a 22-3 half-time lead yet had to hang on to win 25-21. The USA found a way to set Takudzwa Ngwenya free and scored another try through Lou Stanfill near the end, but it wasn’t quite enough.The Eagles left France winless, but produced one of the great moments of the tournament. As the first half closed against South Africa, flanker Todd Clever intercepted a South African pass and set off out of his own 22. He casually brushed away Butch James, who landed on his backside for his pains, and linked up with lock Alec Parker. Parker passed to fly-half Hercus, who looked across the field and saw Ngwenya in space. Hercus lofted a long, looping pass to his wing, and the speedster did the rest.Ngwenya was confronted by the Springbok star Bryan Habana, but rather than being overawed he cut outside, then inside, then outside again, and turned on the gas, leaving one of the world’s best wingers grasping at his heels. It was oneof two USA tries scored in a 64-15 loss, but it was the try everyone remembered, the one that won IRB Try of the Year in 2007.Moments of magic, then, for the United States on the world’s biggest rugby stage. But players would certainly trade a fleeting celebrity for a few more victories.In all the Eagles have only won two matches while losing 15. On three occasions – Romania in 1999, Fiji in 2003 and Samoa in 2007 – their losing margin has been four points or less. It’s also worth noting that in those 17 games, many against some of the greatest teams in the world, the USA have been held tryless only three times. Victories may remain elusive, but you can always count on the Yanks to show something that makes you get out of your seat.USA’s World Cup record                   USA in numbers1987 Group phase                               IRB world ranking 16th1991 Group phase                               Clubs 2,4331995 Didn’t qualify                               Registered players 88,1511999 Group phase                               Senior male players 35,7942003 Group phase                               Referees 1,8582007 Group phaseAnd here’s the try against South Africa in the 2007 World Cup…This article appeared in Part 1 of our Rugby World Cup Supplement.To get a copy of the supplement contact [email protected]last_img read more

Ireland snap up John Plumtree, maintaining the fashion for bringing in foreign influence

first_img(from L) France’s rugby union national team assistant coach Yannick Bru, head coach Philippe Saint-Andre and assistant coach Patrice Lagisquet speak together during a training session on March 7, 2013 in Marcoussis, south of Paris, as part of the preparation for the Six Nations rugby union tournament. France will play Ireland in their 2013 Six nations rugby match on March 23, 2013 in Lansdowne Road. AFP PHOTO / FRANCK FIFE (Photo credit should read FRANCK FIFE/AFP/Getty Images) Man for the job: John Plumtree may have been dumped by Natal Sharks, but he is now Ireland’s forwards coachBy Alan DymockHAVING BEEN relieved of his position with the Natal Sharks by incumbent CEO John Smit, John Plumtree has not taken long in securing new employment as he has signed up to join Ireland as an assistant to Joe Schmidt.”Foreign” success: SchmidtThe Kiwi will be a forwards coach, joining compatriot Schmidt and Australian Les Kiss on the coaching team. With such a heavy influence from the Southern Hemisphere on the Emerald Isle, it is interesting to note which other countries are not led by indigenous coaches. Not to suggest that a country is better off one way or the other, of course, but simply for the acknowledgment that southern style still tends to trump northern nous in the eyes of the greater rugby public or at the very least, a big name from any country seems to be a better catch for unions than those who have climbed up through the ranks and pathways in that country.Ireland are now led by a Kiwi, as are Wales, and Scotland will be as of 2014. Wales do have Rob Howley and Neil Jenkins to impart some ‘local knowledge’. However, England’s all-English coaching caste stands out in comparison to Wales’ with Warren Gatland and Shaun Edwards.Scotland have no indigenous coaches, with Vern Cotter coming in next year and Scott Johnson stepping up to oversee everything and there is Welshman Jonathan Humphreys as forwards coach and Australian Matt Taylor running the defence.However, does it matter as long as the personnel do the job or improve a country’s standing? LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Plumtree has said he looks forward to “putting smiles on Irish faces” and that he wants to make Ireland tougher to beat. Great, if he can. Perhaps things will be that much easier to work around in Dublin, though, because there are so many men with Kiwi connections in Ireland – with Pat Lam at Connacht, Mark Anscomb at Ulster and Rob Penney at Munster – close at hand.Is it therefore assumed that Ireland already have the system for success, though? This heralding of overseas talent is certainly en vogue in the UK and Ireland, with Italy also relying on coaches from France to lead their team. Looking at the rest of the top 15 teams in the IRB world rankings, New Zealand, Australia and South Africa all have home-grown coaches. Argentina, Samoa, Tonga and Fiji are all led by head coaches from their own country, too. At the lower reaches of that list are Japan and Canada, who are led by Aussie Eddie Jones and Kiwi Kieran Crowley respectively.Home-grown, hurting: The all-French coaches are strugglingIt seems that the desire for influence from outside your shores also extends through the British and Irish leagues. In the Aviva Premiership, Leicester, Newcastle, Northampton and Worcester have English head coaches while the rest draw inspiration from elsewhere. In the RaboDirect Pro12, Cardiff, Glasgow, the Dragons, Ospreys and Zebre all have coaches from home.Jingoism aside though, it is hard to gauge whether having all-local leaders works. In France’s Top 14, only Clermont Auvergne and Stade Francais have non-French coaches and their national team is led by a Gallic trio of Philippe Saint-Andre, Yannick Bru and Patrice Lagisquet, yet les Bleus are now talked about in hushed tones as if their national side is doomed to years of failure.The sides like Samoa hoping to establish themselves in the top tier of rugby also look inwardly for personnel, however they are trying to build from a solid core rather than instantly win. No longer is it assumed that a good coach from abroad can lift a system, but rather that the system needs built first.last_img read more

Welsh churches to mark Earth Hour

first_img Rector Collierville, TN The Church Pension Fund Invests $20 Million in Impact Investment Fund Designed to Preserve Workforce Housing Communities Nationwide Church Pension Group AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to PrintFriendlyPrintFriendlyShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitterShare to EmailEmailShare to MoreAddThis [Anglican Communion News Service] Churches across Wales are being urged to switch off all lights or hold candlelit vigils to mark Earth Hour at 8.30 pm on Saturday 19 March. In doing so, they will join in with people across the world in what has been described as “a symbolic act to shine a light on climate change and the need to protect our environment.”An estimated half-a-million people across Wales took part in the 2015 Earth Hour, and half of Welsh local authorities supported the campaign. Key landmarks across the country, such as the Senedd, Caerphilly Castle and Welsh universities and churches went dark for the hour.They joined the international landmarks such as the Eiffel Tour and Sydney Opera House in 172 participating countries across the globe.Earth Hour is organised by the WWF charity and this year marks its 10th year. Participating churches are being asked to register their involvement and add themselves to the online Earth Hour map.The first to register is St Peter’s Church in Carmarthen town centre.“We’re encouraging all churches and parishioners to mark Earth Hour,” the Bishop of Swansea and Brecon, the Rt Revd John Davies, said. The bishop, who speaks on behalf of the Church in Wales’ environment group, CHASE (Church Action for Sustaining the Environment), added: “Switching off our lights for an hour or holding a candlelit service is a small gesture which has huge implications. It reminds us of the part all of us have to play in combating climate change and being responsible stewards of the wonderful gift that is creation.”Anne Meikle, thehead of WWF in Wales, said, “Earth Hour won’t solve climate change, but it presents a stepping stone to further action, by encouraging people to go beyond the hour.“Churches can play a vital role in raising awareness of Earth Hour, engaging with your community and inspiring others to live sustainably.” Episcopal Migration Ministries’ Virtual Prayer Vigil for World Refugee Day Facebook Live Prayer Vigil June 20 @ 7 p.m. ET Rector Shreveport, LA Virtual Celebration of the Jerusalem Princess Basma Center Zoom Conversation June 19 @ 12 p.m. ET Submit a Job Listing An Evening with Presiding Bishop Curry and Iconographer Kelly Latimore Episcopal Migration Ministries via Zoom June 23 @ 6 p.m. ET In-person Retreat: Thanksgiving Trinity Retreat Center (West Cornwall, CT) Nov. 24-28 Rector Smithfield, NC Tags Priest Associate or Director of Adult Ministries Greenville, SC Rector Pittsburgh, PA Associate Rector for Family Ministries Anchorage, AK Assistant/Associate Rector Morristown, NJ Press Release Service Cathedral Dean Boise, ID Seminary of the Southwest announces appointment of two new full time faculty members Seminary of the Southwest New Berrigan Book With Episcopal Roots Cascade Books Family Ministry Coordinator Baton Rouge, LA Rector Bath, NC TryTank Experimental Lab and York St. John University of England Launch Survey to Study the Impact of Covid-19 on the Episcopal Church TryTank Experimental Lab Course Director Jerusalem, Israel Rector and Chaplain Eugene, OR Associate Rector Columbus, GA Rector Washington, DC Canon for Family Ministry Jackson, MS Featured Events The Church Investment Group Commends the Taskforce on the Theology of Money on its report, The Theology of Money and Investing as Doing Theology Church Investment Group Priest-in-Charge Lebanon, OH Director of Music Morristown, NJ Curate Diocese of Nebraska This Summer’s Anti-Racism Training Online Course (Diocese of New Jersey) June 18-July 16 Ya no son extranjeros: Un diálogo acerca de inmigración Una conversación de Zoom June 22 @ 7 p.m. ET Director of Administration & Finance Atlanta, GA Submit an Event Listing Episcopal Charities of the Diocese of New York Hires Reverend Kevin W.

Sean Lamont takes care of the Fijian wingers

first_imgTuesday Nov 17, 2009 Sean Lamont takes care of the Fijian wingers The Lamont brothers returned to international rugby on the weekend as they were recalled by new Scotland coach Andy Robinson for the match against Fiji at Murrayfield. Right wing Sean managed to make his impact felt with two great hits. Both brothers have been out of the limelight in recent times as they battled back from bad form and injury problems. The Evans brothers, Thom and Max, then emerged as the Scottish brothers on the block, which overshadowed the Lamonts to an extent. Because of that, this recent call up came as a nice surprise to Sean. “To get the call with the amount of talent that Scotland has in the back three, I’m very surprised, but very happy,” he said. Younger brother Rory disagreed though. “I wasn’t surprised,” said the full-back. “I was hopeful that we’d both get picked. Having seen Sean play, I knew he was back to his best rugby and I knew he had a good chance.” Scotland expected a bit of a physical stuff against Fiji, which is perhaps one of the reasons why Robinson went ahead with the selection of the powerful, well built outside backs. “I expect hard hits, occasional high hits and the odd swinging arm, as you do against the islanders,” said Rory. “Genetically, they’re just a little bit different to British players. They’re strong and quick. But I feel ready for it.” Ironically it wasnt actually the Fijians who put in the biggest hits of the match, but Rorys brother Sean, who as you can see here nailed both of the South Sea Islander’s massive wings with two awesome tackles.

DKO’s design concept for two linear sites in Penrith aims to create a series of vertical villages that animate the street, each with different characters and scales. Save this picture!© Ben GuthrieSave this picture!Site PlanSave this picture!© Ben GuthrieThe buildings have been designed to mediate between the more considerable height, scale and proportion of adjacent apartment developments and the fine grain, smaller terraces and houses in the surrounding context. This is paired with the vision to create a network of smaller, more approachable and diverse communities. Save this picture!© Ben GuthrieSave this picture!© Ben GuthrieThe buildings are highly articulated and have been visually broken down into volumes. The massing sensitively responds to existing conditions and is aligned with Penrith Council’s future plans for the area. The visual bulk of the buildings is softened further due to material selection, massing techniques, and landscaping. The façade is composed primarily of pre-cast concrete of varying tones with highlights of black metal screens and window hoods. The brick element contributes to the texture and materiality of the façade and responds to the general character of the surrounding buildings.Save this picture!© Ben GuthrieIn different sizes and layouts, a variety of dwelling typologies have been considered within the overall scheme, offering opportunities for families of all scales and helping to create a highly diverse community. Save this picture!© Ben GuthriePrivate and communal open space has been skilfully woven throughout the development. Street landscaping wrapping around each buildings’ edges creates a green buffer while establishing a clear and engaging entry for residents. Unique double-storey communal spaces further break up the building mass, creating generous open green zones supporting various resident activities – from relaxation and play to food production and gatherings. These facilities will foster social interactions between residents and promote a real sense of community.Save this picture!© Ben GuthrieThe Lord Sheffield Circuit apartments aim to reduce reliance on mechanical heating and cooling through carefully considered passive design solutions. Deep balconies, screening and shading devices offer additional sun protection, while 61% of apartments embrace cross-ventilation via open-plan floor plates to the corners and through the building’s depth. The building’s orientation takes full advantage of prevailing breezes to maximize fresh air movement, creating a comfortable indoor environment. Low energy lighting, energy-efficient water heaters, water-saving fittings, and fixtures have been specified throughout, with rainwater tanks onsite collecting for public and private gardens.Save this picture!© Ben GuthrieProject gallerySee allShow lessGround Floor Office / Takayuki Kuzushima and AssociatesSelected ProjectsThe Edge Office Building / Dub ArchitectsSelected ProjectsProject locationAddress:210 Lord Sheffield Cct, Penrith NSW 2750, AustraliaLocation to be used only as a reference.

Each leads with the experiences of somebody who has been affected by severe mental illness or associated discrimination. Both inserts are designed to motivate people to make a regular donation to Rethink’s work. “The campaign has been timed to coincide with Rethink Week, which runs from 20-30 June,” said Louise Farnell, Head of Fundraising at Rethink. “The aim of Rethink Week is to raise awareness of and funds for our work.” Advertisement AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis Howard Lake | 24 June 2003 | Newscenter_img “This is a high impact campaign using negative situations that have turned positive with help from Rethink,” said Sarah Woodford Jones, Account Director at TDA. “The aim of the split test is to establish whether campaigning work or practical support are more powerful messages for generating donations. The message will be most relevant to people who have experienced mental illness first hand, either personally or through a friend or relative.” Rethink tests inserts in The Guardian during awareness week Tagged with: Consulting & Agencies Individual givinglast_img read more

The question bedevils many charities who find it hard to secure funding for core costs like staff.US online service Giifa might offer a way forward. The site, still in development, aims to list charities and prospective employees, and invite individuals to donate towards that employee’s salary and costs of employment. In a way, it is like project funding, which attracts many donors with its transparency and its ability to demonstrate impact. In Giifa’s case though, the project is the staff member.Once enough money has been raised, based on a figure set by the nonprofit, then the employee can be hired.The site is being developed by Pratyush Agarwal, who was inspired by peer-to-peer microfinancing site He explained: “Giifa’s mission is to make donations more transparent, while empowering every individual to create jobs, and help the US economy recover.”I can see some objections to the site’s model, not least how long can employees and nonprofits wait to hear if they have been funded. But its focus on paying for staff costs is most welcome, and might inspire other crowdfunding sites to add such a facility.What is Giifa?  62 total views,  4 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis Tagged with: Digital Recruitment / peoplelast_img read more
