Investors up dissent over Swiss corporate governance, pay

first_imgThe average approval rate was still high – 95.4% in 2017 versus 96.3% in 2016 – but 27 resolutions were rejected at annual general meetings.Regarding remuneration reports for boards and executive management, 21% of advisory votes were supported by less than 80% of shareholders, up from 16% in 2016, Ethos said.The average opposition to a remuneration report stood at 13.3% in 2017, up from 11% last year.The rise in shareholder opposition came as average pay remained “more or less constant”, but varied across sectors, according to Ethos.However, average executive pay at financial companies among the 100 largest Swiss listed companies increased by 4%, despite profits decreasing by 16%.“When voting on remuneration issues, this translates into a higher level of opposition at financial companies than in other sectors,” Ethos said.At asset manager GAM, shareholders rejected the report on pay for 2016 (54% voted against, 28% abstained) and the proposals for performance-related pay for executive management for 2017 (65% against, 28% abstained).At Credit Suisse, meanwhile, shareholder pressure led to the executive management voluntarily cutting its bonus by 40%, Ethos noted.Having a retrospective vote on the 2016 bonus was key to this, it added.In Switzerland, a 2013 referendum on the so-called Minder initiative on executive pay led to considerable changes to corporate law and corporate governance, such as a requirement for companies to hold an annual, binding vote on executive compensation.However, there is some flexibility as to how they have to do this. For example, they can choose to have variable pay approved by shareholders retrospectively or prospectively. In 2017, according to Ethos’ report, the majority of companies opted for a vote on prospective pay, while 23% held a vote on pay proposed for the year gone by.The Swiss parliament has begun debating a draft revision of company law put forward by the federal government. Ethos has called for the reintroduction of a ban on prospective votes on variable pay, which was included in a preliminary draft of the law but later removed.Ethos said the revision to the law was aimed at adapting it to changes in market practice, in particular since the implementation of the Minder initiative.Last week, the UK’s asset management trade body reported that shareholders in FTSE250 companies had rebelled against pay packages more often in the 2017 AGM season than the year before. Shareholders of listed Swiss companies stepped up their opposition to resolutions at this year’s general meetings, in particular in relation to remuneration, according to Ethos, a Swiss pension fund-owned proxy voting foundation. Publishing its annual report on Swiss corporate governance, it said 14% of resolutions received less than 90% support from shareholders, up from 12% last year.There was also an increase in resolutions that received less than 80% support. In 2016 this was 4%, and in 2017 it was 7%.The figures are for the 200 companies in Switzerland’s main stock market index, SPI.last_img read more

Sponsorship Spotlight – Assessing the value of the Premier League sleeve

first_img Share Related Articles StumbleUpon Spotlight ups matchday commentary reach and capacity for new EPL Season  August 21, 2020 Given its reputation for monetisation and global reach, it is no surprise to see the Premier League following in the footsteps of La Liga, Ligue 1 and the Chinese Super League by accepting sleeve sponsors from the start of the 2017/18 season.It has been suggested that the top clubs could bring in £10 million per season from this new sponsorship, for just a 100 sq/cm placement on players’ right arms. SBC News sought opinion on the value of the ‘Premier League sleeve’ from some of the leading lights in the sports sponsorship space.____________________________________Alan Alger, BetwayBetway pays more than any other bookmaker sponsor in the Premier League with £6 million a season to West Ham over three and a half years. SBC spoke to the bookmaker’s PR Manager Alan Alger about the comparative value against front-of-shirt sponsorship.SBC: Exclusivity deals will prevent clubs from selling to a company in the same sector as their lead shirt sponsor. Given that half of the Premier League clubs already have gambling operators as their main shirt sponsors, can you see any value for bookmakers in taking up sleeve sponsorships?AA: “The green light for sleeve sponsorship will have gathered plenty of interest from many brands looking for top-level exposure in the sports industry.“You only have to look at the likes of motor racing to realise that companies are willing to shell out big money for the smallest advertising spaces and that’s now filtering into English football.“There could well be some value in taking advantage of these new sponsorship opportunities, especially if brands can secure deals with the bigger clubs, but holding a space on the front of a shirt will always preside over that and we’re focused on our existing deal with West Ham United.”____________________________________Tony Kenny, William HillRecently, William Hill has been more focused on event sponsorship, and particularly with Scottish Football and the World Darts Championship. Therefore, we were interested in speaking to Head of Sponsorship Tony Kenny to get his take on the value of becoming a ‘sponsor amongst sponsors’.SBC: As a brand, William Hill has become synonymous with sporting events such as the World Darts Championship. Can you see any value in paying eight figures to become a ‘sponsor amongst sponsors’ on a Premier League shirt?TK: “I don’t think we’d be interested in paying such a huge figure for a small piece of the pie. Unless they are offering a lot more inventory with it.“We already have huge global visibility through our current sports sponsorship and partnerships – and I believe our budget would be best spent elsewhere. That said, the clubs will probably bring in new sponsors – but probably not from the European-based gambling sector.”____________________________________Matt House, SportQuakeOur final port of call was SportQuake, a sports marketing agency which has been at the forefront of gaming industry investment into the Premier League since 2006 when they pioneered the first front of shirt deal between an Asian operator and EPL Club (Mansion and Spurs).Subsequently they have worked with many leading European and western operators including 12 Bet, Fun 88, Bet 365 and Betfair and related industry players including PaySafe (Neteller, Skrill). We spoke to CEO Matt House about sleeve inventory and the value for money of the 100 sq/cm placement.SBC: Back in December, you estimated sleeve inventory to be worth 15-20% of a Premier League club’s front-of-shirt sponsorship. £10 million would represent almost 20% of Manchester United’s £53 million deal with Chevrolet, which is the most lucrative in the PL. Therefore, is £10 million realistic for betting companies?MH: “Firstly, it’s great to see more high quality inventory being made available to sponsors. Its certainly a big stature play to become ‘one of three on the uniform’ alongside the kit supplier and the front-of-shirt sponsor. In terms of value, alongside the 100 sq/cm on the arm itself, as a senior club partner the packages will include high profile follow through marketing rights including IP rights, LED and Interview Backdrop branding and player access for content creation (which is increasingly important with the trend for social consumption and sharing).“However, in the short term this isn’t really a massive opportunity for betting. Next season 12 of the 20 PL clubs will have betting companies as front-of-shirt sponsors, which because of category exclusivity provided in these deals means there is no shirt arm sponsorship alongside existing front of shirt betting sponsors. For the other eight, there may be complications with global betting partners, or for the biggest clubs, they simply don’t want to feature bookmakers on the shirt currently.” Share SBC Magazine Issue 10: Kaizen Gaming rebrand and focus for William Hill CEO August 25, 2020 Premier League looks to broadcast every behind-closed-door fixture August 28, 2020 Submitlast_img read more

Dodgers’ Walker Buehler will make first major league start Monday

first_imgLOS ANGELES – A year ago this week, the Dodgers were off to a sluggish start when they promoted one of their top prospects, ostensibly for a brief big league cameo, in hopes of getting an energy boost.Cody Bellinger injected more than energy into their lineup and never went back to the minors. He became the first rookie to lead a 100-win team in both home runs and RBIs and was the unanimous choice as the National League Rookie of the Year.Here we go again?The Dodgers called up top pitching prospect Walker Buehler on Sunday and will activate him Monday. The 23-year-old Buehler will make his first major league start Monday night against the Miami Marlins. Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error “High hopes. High hopes. But not even close to what he expects of himself,” Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said of the expectations for Buehler. “September, obviously it was moving kind of quick for him. There was a learning process. But in spring training, I thought he showed really well. I still love his four-pitch mix. And I think he’s going to come here and pitch well.”Buehler got his first taste of the big leagues as a September call-up last season and was given a chance to win a spot in the Dodgers’ postseason bullpen. It didn’t happen. He allowed eight runs on 11 hits in 9 1/3 innings over eight relief appearances.Back in his more accustomed role as a starter, Buehler has dominated Triple-A hitters in three starts for Oklahoma City this month, holding them to a .204 batting average. Over 13 innings, he is 1-0 with a 2.08 ERA, 16 strikeouts, 10 hits and four walks in 13 innings.“Obviously excitement. I don’t think there’s any surprise there,” Buehler said of his reaction when OKC manager Bill Haselman told him Saturday that he was going to start for the Dodgers.“This was more of a surprise than September was, obviously,” Buehler said. “There was a lot of buildup to September. It’s just different. Starting vs. being in the bullpen, I’m doing what I’ve done my whole career. This is almost a more settled feeling just because I’m going to get the ball for the first pitch tomorrow instead of later in the game.”center_img Nonetheless, Buehler said he learned a valuable lesson from that big league baptism last fall.Sign up for our Inside the Dodgers newsletter. Be the best Dodger fan you can be by getting daily intel on your favorite team. Subscribe here.“Yeah – these hitters are good and you know that,” he said. “But you don’t really understand how good they are and why they’re so good until you see them in person. But most of us here are pretty good too. I’m going to try to remember that and attack.”The Dodgers have limited Buehler’s workload. In his three starts this season, he has completed five innings only once and topped out at 80 pitches in his most recent start (last Monday). Roberts said Sunday that six innings and 90 pitches “would totally be fair” as a limit for Buehler on Monday.For his part, Buehler is used to living with reins on him.“That’s out of my control. That’s not really my job. My job is to make however many I get count,” said Buehler, who had Tommy John surgery shortly after being drafted in the first round three years ago. “(Director of player development) Brandon Gomes asked me a couple weeks ago if I wanted to stretch out. I told him, ‘I’ve wanted to stretch out since June of last year.’ It is what it is. I get why they do those things. But it’s hard when there’s scores on the scoreboard and you want to keep going.”Buehler will have a more difficult time sticking around beyond Monday than Bellinger did a year ago, in part because of the restrictions the Dodgers have put on his workload.The Dodgers needed to add a fifth starter after placing left-hander Rich Hill on the DL with a finger injury last week. Hill is expected to rejoin the rotation Friday in San Francisco, but the Dodgers will need an extra starter for their doubleheader there Saturday. Buehler is “an option” for that start, Roberts said, or he could be headed back to Triple-A on Tuesday.“There’s a couple layers. One is the overall workload,” said Roberts who pegged Buehler’s target this spring at 140 to 150 innings for the season (postseason included). “There is a point where you could pencil him in and give him a runway for the rest of the season to not surpass what we as an organization feel is not too much. There is also an opportunity in the now for someone to pitch. … We chose to take advantage of that.“The other part of it is that guys we have right now are throwing well here. And when you’re in the minors you can also manage his innings and usage a lot better than here.”Buehler said he is not looking beyond Monday night.“You can’t,” he said. “At this point in my career, you’re hoping for one start here and there. I’m getting one tomorrow and I’m looking forward to that.“It’s exciting. It’s the big leagues and it’s time to go now.”ALSOHill threw a bullpen session Sunday afternoon and experienced no problems with the cracked fingernail that landed him on the DL. He is eligible to come off the DL on Wednesday but is expected to pitch Friday in San Francisco.Roberts said the Dodgers’ rotation for the Marlins series will be Buehler on Monday, Kenta Maeda on Tuesday and Clayton Kershaw on Wednesday. That means Kershaw will not pitch in the series at AT&T Park, where he is 13-4 with a 1.30 ERA in his career.UP NEXTMarlins LHP Jarlin Garcia (1-0, 0.86) at Dodgers RHP Walker Buehler (2018 MLB debut), Monday 7:10 p.m., SportsNet LA (where available)last_img read more

A Laker again, Dwight Howard wants his actions to do the talking

first_img How athletes protesting the national anthem has evolved over 17 years Lakers practice early hoping to answer all questions But, so far, those lofty statistics haven’t trended into the postseason: He’s been to the NBA Finals only once, his Orlando Magic team falling to the Kobe-led Lakers in 2009. The three-time NBA Defensive Player of the Year has also been trailed by locker room chemistry questions, including in L.A., where he and Bryant had a rift that played a role in Howard’s departure for Houston in free agency in 2013.Howard expressed Wednesday that he’s more than moderately focused on improving that reputation, though you don’t have to take his word for it, he said.“We’re trying to win a championship,” Howard said of his conversations with Lakers management, coaches and teammates prior to signing. “And I think everybody wants to know what level of commitment that I have and what everybody else on the team has, so I definitely understand that.“And I’m very committed to helping this team win a championship. It’s not just an interest of mine, it’s something that I’m super-committed to, and I’d rather just let my actions speak louder than any words I can tell y’all. So I’m gonna keep it short and sweet and let my actions do the talking.” Trail Blazers, Grizzlies advance to NBA play-in game; Suns, Spurs see playoff dreams dashed AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREUCLA alum Kenny Clark signs four-year contract extension with Packers“Not too often in life do you get a second chance, so this is an awesome experience, I’m looking forward to just being the best teammate, the best person in the community, the best I can be for this franchise. … Six years ago doesn’t seem like a long time, but a lot of things have happened, and I’m just excited.”He continued: “My goal is just to win, there’s nothing else that matters. Whatever I have to do to be a great teammate, whatever I have to do on the court, it’s all about winning, the only thing that matters is winning the championship.”As if to prove it, Howard veered toward the high road when asked a question about having been pulled into a recent back-and-forth between Lakers greats Kobe Bryant and Shaquille O’Neal, the latter of whom tweeted to Bryant: “It’s all good bro, when I saw the interview, I thought you were talking about Dwite, is that how u spell his name lol.”Howard said first that he has “nothing but love and respect for them” and then complimented both on their post-playing business success, saying they’ve inspired him to continue to grow his business acumen.“The things (O’Neal) said, I don’t take it either way,” Howard said. “My job is to come here and help this team win; it’s not to get into any arguments with Shaq or Kobe or anybody. I don’t plan to let anything distract me from helping this team win a championship.” Dwight Howard said he’s feeling blessed and balanced as he prepares to embark on his second stint with the Lakers, one he hopes will provide a much happier ending.In 2012-13, Howard was an All-Star and led the league in rebounds, but the Lakers’ season ended with a first-round playoff sweep – well short of the expectations established when the team traded for Howard the previous summer. Then Howard unceremoniously left in free agency a few months later, leaving a sour taste with many Lakers fans, whose team hasn’t experienced the playoffs since.Howard’s goal now, he said during an introductory conference call with reporters Wednesday morning, is to win – and win over those fans that way.“Oh man, I think it’s a very big blessing to be able to come back here and play,” said Howard, who spoke of a years-long maturation process and an especially introspective past few months as preparation for this second Lakers life.center_img Trail Blazers beat Grizzlies in play-in, earn first-round series with the Lakers Lakers, Clippers schedules set for first round of NBA playoffs The Lakers hope the 6-foot-11 big man will bolster their frontcourt depth in the wake of Demarcus Cousins’ torn left ACL, which could cost him the season.They signed the 33-year-old Howard on Aug. 26, officially welcoming the eight-time All-Star back to L.A., where he will where No. 39 – “Do you like it?” he asked during the call – and is expected to play a supporting role on another Lakers team with championship aspirations, headlined this time by LeBron James and Anthony Davis.“Man, I’m just excited to be on this team,” said Howard, who was bought out of his contract with the Memphis Grizzlies and cleared waivers before signing with the Lakers on a $2.6 million non-guaranteed veteran’s minimum deal that, according to ESPN, won’t be paid until the regular season begins in October.“We have a lot of weapons,” Howard continued. “Playing with a guy like Anthony Davis, I think we’ll really play well off each other. He’s amazing. I’ve watched him grow over the years, and I’m just excited to be able to learn from him, but also give him some things that I’ve learned over my 15 years of being in the NBA.”Although Howard played a career-low nine games last season following back surgery, he’s proved productive when healthy: He started 81 games in Charlotte during the 2017-18 season and averaged 16.6 points, 12.5 rebounds and 1.6 blocked shots per game.All-time, Howard ranks 14th in career rebounds (13,184) and fourth in shooting percentage (58.3 percent). He finished in the top five in rebounding in 12 of his 15 NBA seasons and led the league five times.Related Articles Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Errorlast_img read more

After Storm Nursery School Returns to Belford

first_imgBy John BurtonMIDDLETOWN – “We’re home again,” Jennifer Macchia, director of the Spice Tree School, said with a broad smile as the children and staff entered their restored facility five months after Sandy knocked the nursery and day care facility back on its heels.Spice Tree, 180 Church St., in the township’s Belford section, on Monday greeted its approximately 40 students, ages 6 months to 5 years old, once again at what has been the school’s location, leased from the neighboring Belford United Methodist Church, for the school’s 30-year history.Executive Director Jennifer Macchia (left) and teacher Pat Perry join some of their young students at Spice Tree School, in Middletown’s Belford section, as it reopened this week after experiencing damage from Super Storm Sandy.As a result of the late October storm that battered much of the area, more than three feet of water flooded the privately owned child care facility. According to Macchia and owner Lance Jordan, the tidal surges and flooding from Raritan Bay caused a neighboring creek to rise and wash through the building, wrecking the school and destroying much of the site’s equipment.As the water receded, it left about six inches of sludge in the school’s first floor, Macchia said, and the flood caused the kitchen’s large refrigerator to float over to the other side of the room. Jordan said about 80 percent of the facility and its contents was damaged and had to be discarded or replaced.When he saw it, Jordan said, “I wanted to cry.”“The cribs were floating upside down,” Macchia remembered.Jordan and the church shared the renovation and repair expenses; the church paid for 70 percent of the work to the facility. The building needed walls, flooring and carpeting, cabinets, kitchen sink and refrigerator replac­ed, as well as electrical work completed before students and staff could return, he said. Jordan’s share of the work came to roughly $80,000. He also had to replace the two small buses and two vans that were parked in the lot when the storm hit, he said.With the location clearly incapable of being used for the immediate future, Macchia said the church’s board of trustees stepped up and were “instantaneously supportive,” agreeing to allow the school to use the church’s large community hall, adjacent to the main church.“It was the Christian thing to do,” said Arliene Zaborney, president of the church’s board.Once the electricity was restored to the location, nearly two weeks after the storm, Macchia, Jordan and his wife Joann, and the staff, set up the interim operation, with assistance from students’ families, who also provided much needed items, like high chairs and disposable diapers.Along with that help, Macchia noted Spice Tree received generous assistance from the Middletown Veter­ans of Foreign Wars and other organizations, which donated toys and other items. Save The Children charitable organization donated $5,000, and Giving Nest, a North Plainfield preschool, gave equipment for Spice Tree’s small gym area, Macchia said.On the school’s official first day this week, Macchia and the Jordans joined Middletown Deputy Mayor Stephanie Murray for the ribbon cutting and celebrated the school’s return. “It’s very moving when you see this,” Murray said, as children scampered about and operations were back. “It just makes you feel good.”All of the school’s children have returned and for them, the returning is significant, Macchia observed, “because it brings them back to their comfort zone” and a return to normalcy. About five of the families remain displaced due to the damage to their homes, she said.“And it is all about the children,” stressed Jordan, who has owned the school for eight years.last_img read more

Long-Dormant Colts Neck Townhouse Development Advances

first_imgWestminster Management’s concept for new townhouses inColts Neck.COLTS NECK – A proposal to build 48 upscale townhomes on a 39.57-acre vacant tract along County Route 537 here is expected to receive final planning board approval on April 14. The project by Westminster Management, a division of Kushner Companies (also known as Colts Neck Building Associates, LLC), was originally approved in 2004 following a lengthy lawsuit and many contentious public meetings attended by overflow crowds opposing it.The site is across from, and slightly west of, Colts Neck High School, opposite Five Points Park. The only other development of its kind in the township is The Grande, a single and multifamily development near Route 18 and the Westminster site that satisfied some of Colts Neck’s affordable housing obligation when it was constructed in the mid-1990s.According to Colts Neck Township Planner Timothy Anfuso, it’s “basically the same development but everything has shrunk” to keep construction outside a 300 foot riparian buffer protecting a sensitive Category One stream designated by the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection (DEP), which feeds into the Swimming River. The development is expected to maintain its original composition of four courtyards with three buildings per courtyard and four units per building.Anfuso said it was the imposition of the 300-foot buffer requirements by the DEP that contributed to halting the project, originally slated to break ground in 2004. Two detention basins and a retaining wall were constructed then, as well as a dirt ramp; now overgrown. Westminster’s revised application has come before the planning board twice so far, in January and March of this year. According to Township Administrator Robert Bowden, the township committee adopted two “A-1” consent resolutions on March 25 relating to the development’s proposed water treatment plant, confirming it complies with local ordinances.At the site of a Colts Neck townhome development that began in 2004, the only visible evidence of early construction is an overgrown dirt ramp and a white trailer that has remained on the property since. The developer recently resurrected the project. Photo: Laura D. KolnoskiGordon Gemma, in-house counsel for Westminster, said the project was resurrected now, “because the marketplace has returned and there seems to be interest in this type of project which did not exist before.” He said the size of the units has been reduced from an average of 3,600 to an average 3,000 square feet. The townhouses remain high end, with estimated pricing in the “high $700,000s.” Pricing in 2004 was projected at $700,000 – $750,000.Additional premium features and upgrades will be available. There are two different unit designs, with two or three bedrooms upstairs and a master bedroom downstairs. Each will have a two-car garage and some will have walkouts depending on location.The project’s revised exterior design has also been approved by the Colts Neck Architectural Review Committee. That body’s chairwoman, Lillian Burry, was the deputy mayor originally charged with leading the township’s case against Westminster, which dragged on for four years. In May 2004, following a settlement, the Township Committee passed the final ordinances allowing the project to proceed.At the time, the proposed development followed Mt. Laurel affordable housing litigation and was intended to provide 263 low and moderate income dwellings. Westminster charged that Colts Neck had not fulfilled its affordable housing quota obligations set by the Coalition on Affordable Housing (COAH). Through the settlement, the township prevailedin reducing the development to 48 upscale townhomes aimed at empty nesters and retirees, so as not to impact the school system. Officials hoped the development would be attractive to locals looking to downsize but remain in Colts Neck.“There are always developers searching municipalities looking for vulnerable spots they can cite for builder’s relief cases,” Burry, now a Monmouth County Freeholder and owner of Colts Neck Realty, said in December 2003. “We came out on the upper end; it could have been much worse.” Fast-forward to April 2, 2015 when Burry said, “Colts Neck was considered amongst the most vulnerable after Mt. Laurel. Now, the township needs this. It is alternative housing that we don’t really have available other than The Grande.”Anfuso said the revised project must still obtain re-approval from the Monmouth County Planning Board for right-of-way on Rt. 537. Gemma said Westminster has already submitted its revised plans to the DEP, which will ensure the modifications are compliant with current DEP regulations that went into effect after the original approvals. Burry is one of three freeholder representatives on the county planning board.“We anticipate having all we need to get going by the end of June,” Gemma said. Before construction can begin, the site will be cleaned up, a general contractor will be hired and the project will go out to bid. While it could take two years to complete the project, the construction timetable depends on pre-and ongoing sales. Gemma responded to local officials’ questions regarding whether Westminster would sell the development to another firm once all approvals are obtained.“Right now, we are not in contract with anybody,” he said. “It’s our anticipation to go for ward. Of course, we would consider any reasonable offer. It will be a wonderful project that fits into Colts Neck. — By Laura D. Kolnoskilast_img read more

Cancer campaign group seeks urgent meeting with Health Minister

first_imgThe Donegal Action for Cancer Care group is demanding answers after they have been left waiting three months for a meeting with the Health Minister. The voluntary group, who campaign for equal access to cancer and health services in Donegal, met with Minister Simon Harris on 6th March.A follow up meeting was promised to discuss outstanding questions, but the DACC say they are still waiting on a date to be confirmed. Betty Holmes of DACC asked: “So what do we in Donegal Action for Cancer Care have to do to get this meeting? Do they who are in paid positions really care about Letterkenny University Hospital, Donegal’s Community Hospitals and access or lack of it to health care for Donegal patients and sick people?“We have written a few times to all those who charged with arranging it (the follow-up meeting), we have even written to Minister Harris letting him know the meeting hasn’t happened.”Ms Holmes said she has written to the Health Minister once more to say that the lack of action is unacceptable.She said: “For us in DACC it is very important that we in Donegal all have the opportunity to attend meetings together so we can ask our questions and come up the road again clear about what is being said.” “DACC are not going away nor are we giving up!“We will do what we can within our role to work and fight hard for Donegal cancer and health services!,” Ms Holmes added.Cancer campaign group seeks urgent meeting with Health Minister was last modified: June 17th, 2019 by Rachel McLaughlinShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)last_img read more
