Seven prison officials were suspended in connection with the hosting of the party by Pintu Tiwari who is serving life sentence for murdering two engineers in Darbhanga. “A video of the party, which had gone viral on Saturday night, shows Tiwari cutting a cake and sharing sweets with other inmates who present him with gift-wrapped packets,” Sitamarhi Jail Superintendent Rajesh Kumar Rai said. Selfies takenA platter of rice and mutton curry was also served at the gathering while some of the inmates whipped mobile phones out of their pockets and clicked selfies with Tiwary, he said. Tiwary, a sharp-shooter of the Mukesh Pathak gang, had carried a reward of ₹50,000 on his head. He was arrested from Patna three years ago. It was not clear when the birthday party was held.

ICC World Twenty20: Sourav Ganguly promises high-scoring final at Eden Gardens

first_imgFormer India captain and Cricket Association of Bengal (CAB) president Sourav Ganguly has said that the Eden Gardens pitch will suit the big hitters in the ICC World Twenty20 final between the West Indies and England on Sunday.The West Indies defeated hosts India in the semi-final while England overcame a strong New Zealand in their semi-final clash at the Feroz Shah Kotla in Delhi. (Also read: World T20 final – Gayle not the only threat to England, says Morgan)Both West Indies and England are studded with power-packed batsmen who have cleared the boundary ropes with ease.”The wicket will be good. They have got a bit of grass on it, it’s different from the last two games with a fair bit of grass cover. So, there will be carry and I think it’s going to be a terrific game tomorrow,” Ganguly said in an exclusive interview to IndiaToday. (Also read: England, West Indies on the verge of creating ICC World Twenty20 history)Ganguly added that the toss will not be a factor in the title clash and anything in the range of 180-190 should be a par score.”Toss will not be a factor as there will be no dew at the Eden. It will be a good surface. Both sides have looked to chase in the semi-finals so may be they will want to chase. This ground is not the biggest so it’s an opportunity to get 180-190 and it should be a good total,” he said.advertisementSome pitches in the course of the World T20 have aided sharp turn, producing low-scoring games, especially in Nagpur. The India-Pakistan game at the Eden also turned out to be a nightmare for the batsmen with the exception of Virat Kohli. Like former England skipper Nasser Hussain, Ganguly also felt that the West Indies have the edge in Sunday’s final. (Also read: Only we can beat ourselves, Darren Sammy warns England) “Two of the best sides have qualified for the final. I am not a big believer in favourites but I think West Indies are looking very, very good. They are a serious side. When you go on to watch a T20 game, you would like to see the likes of Chris Gayle, Andre Russell, Lendl Simmons hitting the ball into the crowd, hitting into the stands and the wicket is tailor-made for that. Somehow I feel the West Indies are ahead,” he concluded.last_img

7 in 10 Employees Value Skills Training More than Degrees; Glassdoor Employment Confidence…

first_img 23 hours ago 23h 23 hours ago 23h Customer Service Representative Great Falls Marketing Westbrook, ME While 82% of college grads believe having a degree has helped them in their career, the value of an education remains an ongoing national debate. In fact, although most employees believe a degree is important, a majority of employees (72%) believe specialized training to acquire specific skills is more valuable than a degree in the workplace. This is according to Glassdoor’s Q2 2014 Employment Confidence Survey¹, revealing how employees value their own education and higher education overall as it relates to their careers and the workplace.Each quarter, the Glassdoor Employment Confidence Survey also monitors four key indicators of employment confidence: salary expectations, job security, the job market and company outlook.How Employees Value EducationWhen it comes to what’s most important to advance their career and earn a bigger paycheck, more than three in five (63%) employees report learning new skills or receiving special training, compared to those who report receiving a college or graduate degree (45%), transitioning careers or looking for a new job or company (38%), and networking with professionals (34%), among other options.In addition, employers and hiring managers may be looking for something other than a specific degree as three in four (74%) employees believe their employers value work experience and related skills more than education when evaluating job candidates. Plus, half (48%) of employees with a college degree believe their specific degree is not very relevant to the job they do today, while four in five (80%) report that they have never been asked about their college GPA (grade point average) during a job interview. More than half (53%) of employees also believe a graduate degree is no longer necessary to be offered a high-paying job.Despite this, employees acknowledge that higher education still adds value in the workplace, as more than half (56%) also believe if they had a higher level of education, they would be more successful in their career.“The national conversation about the value of higher education and gainful employment is a topic alive within companies. While education is still valued as one piece of the puzzle for a successful career, we’re seeing a shift in the workplace in which most employees feel gaining the latest skills relevant to their job and industry is more valuable to help advance their careers, and they’re feeling it’s what employers are truly seeking to really help move business forward,” said Rusty Rueff, Glassdoor career and workplace expert. “For any employee looking to earn a bigger salary or move up the corporate ladder, they should do their research on how their industry is evolving, including identifying specific skill sets that are in demand. Going back to school may be one way to learn and improve, but there are also non-traditional ways, such as certificate programs, bootcamps, webinars, online non-degreed courses, conferences and more.”Pay Raise Expectations DropDown seven percentage points from last quarter, Glassdoor’s Q2 2014 Employment Confidence Survey reveals 37% of employees expect to receive a pay raise or cost-of-living increase in the next 12 months. This is down from last quarter, when it was at its highest level in more than five years at 44%. More than two in five (43%) do not expect a pay raise, while one in five (20%) are unsure.Job Market Confidence Remains High and SteadyThough employees are not as optimistic as last quarter about pay raises in the next 12 months, employees’ confidence (including those self-employed) in the job market remains steady. More than two in five (44%) employees believe it is likely they could find a job matched to their experience and current compensation levels in the next six months, remaining unchanged since Q1 2014.However, among those unemployed but looking, 32% believe it is likely they could find a job in the next six months, up from 31% since the first quarter.Check out more from our Q1 2014 Glassdoor Employment Confidence Survey, including our survey supplement which provides a detailed quarter-by-quarter breakdown of results.¹ The Glassdoor Employment Confidence survey is conducted online by Harris Interactive on behalf of Glassdoor. Browse Open Jobs 23 hours ago 23h 5.0★ 2.3★ Licensed Nurse Assistant (Part Time) Genesis Healthcare Rutland, VT 23 hours ago 23h 3.5★ Registered Nurse RN Medical Surgical Unit CJW Medical Center Richmond, VA 3.9★ 2.7★ 5.0★ RN, Registered Nurse – Surgery – PRN CHRISTUS Health Houston, TX Market Float Pool – RN – Med Surg Del Sol Medical Center El Paso, TX 3.4★ 23 hours ago 23h 2.9★ Local City Driver (Full-Time) Reddaway Bellingham, WA Journeyworker Electrician Muth Electric Columbus, NE 23 hours ago 23h 3.3★ 23 hours ago 23h Shipping Clerk – TW Metals, LLC O’Neal Industries Carol Stream, IL 23 hours ago 23h Certified Nursing Assistant CNA Northland Lutheran Retirement Community Marinette, WI 23 hours ago 23h 4.7★ Lineman (Experienced) Connexus Energy Ramsey, MN 23 hours ago 23hlast_img
