That Lemar has not adapted to Atlético de Madrid is a fact. There are their numbers. The stunning player of Monaco in 2016-17 (55 games, 14 goals) has never appeared in Madrid. Griezmann’s request to prop up the champion Atlético who wanted his measure to stay in 2018, only in the first weeks did he leave signs of his undeniable talent (The Super Cup against Madrid in Tallinn will always be remembered as his best game as a rojiblanco), but now. Neither with Griezmann and Lucas, nor without Lucas and Griezmann, nor despite the confidence of Cholo, the pampering of the club, neither last season nor this one, Lemar has been that Lemar. In the showcase the past winter market, a hair’s breadth away, in the last hours ESPN points to movements to leave the rojiblanco club in the next. The journalist of the chain, Julien Laurens, reported that last week there was a first meeting between the player’s representatives and Manchester United, club interested in signing in the summer. In addition, it highlighted two circumstances. The first, that: that Lemar “does not adapt completely Diego Simeone’s style of play and he has run out of opportunities in the first team. “The second:”what wants to leave Atlético in summer after an unhappy period in the Spanish capital“, as it collected Stretty News In England. Atlético seeks to recover its high investment“It is clear that the 24-year-old needs a move to resurrect a promising career that seems to have hit a brick wall in Spain.“The news stood out. The weight of having been (until the arrival of João Félix) for one year the most expensive signing in the history of Atlético, who paid 70 million for his incorporation, got tangled in his legs and has not raised his head. Often, that player who promised everything in Monaco, wanders lost through the field, subtracting more than adding, one day, another, infinities. Pushed by the fans in a systematic way, his recovery as a rojiblanco seems increasingly difficult. United already loved him when he played for Monaco. Now may be the time. Of course, Atlético in all its negotiations for Lemar has always sought something (as it was made known in the past market to those who approached asking about it, Arsenal, Bayern, Lyon, Tottenham …): recoup your investment in the player. Not the ‘bad’ will pierce.

Joan Joffe, business leader turned ‘venture catalyst’. (Image: Joan Joffe)MEDIA CONTACTS • Joan JoffeRELATED ARTICLES• Businesswomen leaving a legacy• New body to empower SA women• Gender equality under the spotlightYvonne FontynTiming has a lot to do with being successful, says Joan Joffe, one of the most recognisable faces in South African business. “Well, you certainly caught the computer wave,” I mention to her when we meet at a Rosebank hotel. “I caught three waves!” she responds. “The PC wave, the cellphone wave and the black economic empowerment wave.” It’s not just a matter of luck, though. Joffe says if you want to succeed “you have to be out there looking for opportunities all the time, and work very, very hard”.The owner of her own IT company, a former senior executive of Vodacom and a former Businesswoman of the Year, Joffe should know. Having left the cellphone giant about 11 years ago, she has worked as a business consultant and served on the boards of several companies, including that of Nozala, a broad-based black empowerment women’s investment company. Today, says the seventysomething-year-old, who looks fit and vibrant, “I stay below the radar.”But to her that means working from a home office and facilitating several projects. “I call myself a ‘venture catalyst’ – rather than being on the operational side, I initiate projects. People approach me with products and ideas and I introduce them to other people who can help bring their plans to fruition.” The sweet feeling she has when a deal goes through is still there, she says.Women do things differentlyA maths and philosophy – “the logics side” – graduate, Joffe says she never found being a female in male-dominated industries a disadvantage. She also never felt compelled to emulate men’s workplace style to get ahead. “Business is about differentiating yourself from others. It is different, being a woman when there is a majority of men, so use it.”On the whole, women do approach things differently, says Joffe. “The skills a woman brings to a company or a board are different from the skills considered stereotypically male. In general, women have a more consultative, empathetic approach, and that is the kind of leadership we need in South Africa today. We don’t need autocratic leadership.”Organisations are realising this and so there are many more opportunities today for women who want to succeed. “Companies want women in executive positions and on their boards.”There are also infinitely more resources available to women today, says Joffe – “through the internet there is much more opportunity to acquire knowledge” – and females in this country are in a strong position: “The only thing limiting us is our vision of ourselves. Women should realise they can be anyone and anything.”Forging a careerJoffe’s father was a prominent Johannesburg lawyer and a community leader and it was from his example that she chose her own path. She planned to study law but after she completed her bachelor’s degree at the University of the Witwatersrand, the world of computers called and she began working as a programmer for ICL. Then her husband got the opportunity to study at Stanford University and she joined him in the US. There she was able to study computer science for two years and spend some time working in the IT industry. The couple spent a total of four years in the US. “The standard at Stanford was much higher than at Wits. When we came back I felt I was ahead of the pack.”She worked for some years at IBM as a systems engineer and then joined Hewlett-Packard. The company’s scientific and financial calculators were in huge demand and she opened a business selling them in Braamfontein, in Johannesburg. Then, she said, “I attended a meeting where they talked about the latest innovation, PCs, and a red light came on for me. I knew it was the future.”She personally flew to the US to buy computers from an IBM retailer and in 1977, Joffe Associates was born, supplying computers to individuals and big companies in the Johannesburg CBD. In 1986 she sold Joffe Associates to Datakor and some years later, was approached by Vodacom to take up a position as marketing director. When she left the cellphone operator in 2002 she returned to consulting and became a director of technology group Datacentrix.Apart from always “keeping their antennae up for opportunities”, Joffe’s advice to women who want to make it in business is:Be prepared to take a risk. “Be careful about how big it is and do your research first, but take a risk.”When it comes to juggling family responsibilities – Joffe has two sons – she says it must be managed well. “Companies should help women with children; it helps if management is sensitive to these issues. Speak to your boss and if you don’t receive support, consider moving on.” At the same time, there should be quid pro quo. “If you take time off for the school gala or lift scheme, for example, work the time in, and never take advantage of the arrangement.”Don’t limit your thinking – be ambitious in whatever field you are in.Work exceptionally hard.Surround yourself with people who are positive and co-operative.Be prepared to share and help others, and bring them up the ladder with you.Prioritise family, never neglect them in favour of work.Pick a supportive partner because, “if your partner is unhelpful or does not accept your ambition, your options will be to leave your partner or to leave your ambition”.There is no need to copy men. These days success is based on ability, not gender.Be visible: “Tell people if you have done something fantastic; don’t be a shy violet.” Joffe said it was a challenge when she first saw her image on a front-page newspaper advertisement for her company. “My ad agency said we had to place the ad because I was the USP [unique selling proposition] of the company. I was horrified.” But she got used to it and her business grew exponentially.And finally, “see the positive aspects in every situation, don’t focus on the negative. Keep you vision in mind.”One might add remain gracious and grounded, because it strikes me that South Africa’s first lady of ICT is those things as well. read more
When it comes to user security at Apple, it’s one step forward, two steps back.Yesterday, the company belatedly announced long-needed two-step verification security for Apple IDs, only two years after Google rolled out the protective measure for its users. Today comes word of a massive security flaw that reportedly lets anyone reset your Apple account password if they know your email and your birthday.(See also: Apple Finally Gets Serious About User Security)But here’s the punch line: While two-step verification would protect Apple users from this exploit, the company has subjected all requests to activate the security measure to a three day delay. Even then, two-step verification is only available to users in the U.S., the UK, Australia, Ireland, and New Zealand.How To Protect YourselfA step-by-step guide to exploiting this vulnerability is still available online, although we won’t link to it here. Basically, it involves pasting in a modified URL on Apple’s iForgot page when prompted to answer the date-of-birth security question to reset your password.The surest way to protect yourself in the short term — i.e., without two-step verification — is to change your birthday, the Verge’s Chris Welch writes. To its credit, Apple has already disabled its password reset page, presumably to disrupt any attempts to hijack user accounts. With any luck it will have the flaw fixed as soon as possible, although the company has yet to make any public statements regarding the flaw.This turn of events follows by just days an earlier Apple security faux paux. The company released iOS 6.1.3 for the sole purpose of fixing a lock-screen bypass that let users with a knack for expert timing access an iPhone’s contacts and photo library. Yet later that day it become clear that the update contained yet another lock-screen bypass flaw.This password reset hack is considerably more destructive than the lockscreen problem, which essentially only allows a would-be hacker to peek at a stolen iPhone’s contacts and photo library. Still, it’s certainly been a bad week for Apple in the user-security department.We’ve contacted Apple and will update if and when we hear back.Update:According to the Verge, Apple acknowledges the vulnerability and says it’s working on it:Apple takes customer privacy very seriously. We are aware of this issue, and working on a fix. Why You Love Online Quizzes Tags:#Apple#cybersecurity#hack How to Write a Welcome Email to New Employees?
