According to reports, Jeremy Kyle will return to television with a new live show, but this time with TalkTV. Kyle’s new program will launch on Monday, October 10, reports OK Magazine. Kyle’s program will air on TalkTV, where the former ITV host currently hosts a radio show that airs weekly.

The popular ITV show ran during the day and ran for 14 years, finally being forced to close in 2019. A guest named Steve Dymond had died by suicide. Following this, Jeremy Kyle took a three-year sabbatical from television.

The 63-year-old TV host said he was ready to host a show for TalkTV again after a long time. The show opens on October 10 with Jeremy Kyle trying to make sense of the issues that matter to the British people. His show will help anyone watching this program navigate the difficult times of the current scenario. He is looking forward to being on the show for TalkTV.

Kyle had talked about his new role for a show earlier, and he’s very much looking forward to it. The basis of the new show is how a current news story is rated by individuals and what they think of that news story. There would be a live audience and an array of speakers on stage with Jeremy Kyle.

Members of the public and a few MPs had called for the show to be shut down after reports started coming in that many people were killing themselves after appearing on the show.

Five things you can do to overcome burnout • Troy Media https://satgtu.org/five-things-you-can-do-to-overcome-burnout-troy-media/ Fri, 23 Sep 2022 17:48:27 +0000 https://satgtu.org/five-things-you-can-do-to-overcome-burnout-troy-media/ Reading time: 4 minutes Like many people, I faced significant challenges and burnout in the past year.

Like many people, I faced significant challenges and burnout in the past year. It was so bad that I told my team in September that I was going to take a three to six month sabbatical starting in December.

However, by the time January rolled around, and after only a few weeks of vacation, I was ready to go again and felt invigorated. Here are some things you can do if you’re dealing with burnout but can’t afford to take a sabbatical.

Identify what bothers you: Burnout is usually caused by prolonged periods of stress that may or may not be related to your job. Identifying the underlying cause of your burnout and stress can be harder than it looks.

We often want to point out the challenges we face in our work without acknowledging that there may be an elephant in the room that we are not paying enough attention to.

In my case, while I felt stressed about my job, the reality was that I was stressed about factors beyond my control that affected my clients. I was overwhelmed with trying to continue supporting business owners struggling with the effects of Covid lockdowns, as well as my particular struggle with vaccination mandates.

Once I was able to verbalize my challenges and make decisions about how to deal with those issues, my stress level went down. Identifying the underlying issues that are sapping your energy is the first thing you need to do to rejuvenate yourself.

Change orientation: Once you have identified the overriding issues for your internal struggle and resolved them or at least acknowledged that there may be no apparent solution to the challenges they represent, you allow yourself to move on. Giving yourself new things to think about that break your internal mental cycle of self-talk is key to recharging your batteries. This can mean that you may need to take on a new project at work, change your office or workspace, rearrange your work, or take on new clients or new responsibilities.

If changes at work aren’t a viable option, try a new hobby, meet new people, get a new pet. Resetting our brain can allow us to look at our lives from a different perspective.

Look outside of yourself and your work: There is a saying that goes “I cried because I had no shoes until I met a man who had no feet”. Very often we wallow in our self-pity without realizing how much we really have it. Look around at your colleagues, friends and people in your community and start counting your blessings.

One of the best ways to recharge is to focus more on others and less on ourselves. Volunteering or supporting people who need our help, our presence and our energy can give us a new lease of life and distract us from our awareness of our personal problems.

Being present at work: Often, as individuals, we dwell on our failures. I was recently told that one of my presentations didn’t go as well as I had hoped. To be honest, I was humbled and disappointed. I had let something that had happened months before and was now beyond my control affect my entire week. This is not uncommon; as humans, we dwell on our past mistakes, and mistakes and events long past affect how we think and feel today.

Unfortunately, in most cases there is nothing we can do to change them and we have to move on. We can only control what happens to us in the present.

If we are at work, we need to focus on the tasks at hand and do them with the care and attention they deserve. As they say, time doesn’t stand still for anyone, no matter how good we think we are. How many opportunities for joy and fulfillment do we lose every day because we dwell on past failures or are distracted by our envy of others and their social media posts?

Leave work at work: I realized early in my career that no one really cared what happened to me at work, and the best thing I could do was leave my job at work. The same goes for you.

When you walk into your home, you should be able to focus on the things that are important to you at home, the people you love, your hobbies, your pets, your to-do list, your friends and family. . Establishing clear boundaries between work and home can be revitalizing in itself. Turn off your phone or laptop and don’t respond to texts or emails outside of reasonable working hours. You might be surprised when you realize how much energy your thoughts about work were taking up in your free time and how invigorated you feel returning to the office after a truly workless weekend.

My burnout didn’t go away after a weekend; it took months. But after identifying the underlying issues, quitting my job at work, and changing direction, I was able to recharge my batteries and reestablish my passion for making a difference for my clients.

I hope that if you go through a similar struggle, you will also be revitalized and love what you do again.

Platoon compliance chief Lanciault jumps for Snapchat role https://satgtu.org/platoon-compliance-chief-lanciault-jumps-for-snapchat-role/ Wed, 21 Sep 2022 21:10:54 +0000 https://satgtu.org/platoon-compliance-chief-lanciault-jumps-for-snapchat-role/ Peloton Interactive Inc. is parting ways with two of its top lawyers as the home fitness company shakes up its executive ranks.

Peloton Interactive Inc. is parting ways with two of its top lawyers as the home fitness company shakes up its executive ranks.

Longtime chief legal officer and co-founder Hisao Kushi will leave the struggling company next month. The Peloton’s former chief compliance and risk officer, Bertrand “Lance” Lanciault III, also left to take up a similar role at Snap Inc., the parent company of social media service Snapchat.

Kushi leaves with Executive Chairman and Peloton Co-Founder John Foley. He will be replaced as Peloton’s top lawyer on Oct. 3 by Tammy Albarrán, chief assistant general counsel at Uber Technologies Inc. Peloton and Kushi did not respond to requests for comment on Lanciault’s replacement.

New York-based Peloton said in mid-August it would cut nearly 800 jobs, raise prices and close stores as part of a sweeping overhaul of its business.

Lanciault joined Peloton last year, having served as chief legal officer at StubHub Inc. and chief ethics and compliance officer for the e-commerce arm of Walmart Inc. He did not respond to a request for comment on his job change to Snap, which is listed on Lanciault’s LinkedIn profile and his California state bar registration and was confirmed by a source familiar with Peloton’s operations.

His gesture was noted for the first time by the Radical Compliance corporate compliance website.

Instant mass layoffs

Snap, like Peloton, is also restructuring its operations.

The company announced on August 31 that it dismiss 20% of its workforce – approximately 1,200 employees – as two senior executives jumped up to Netflix. The reduction in strength included some newly hired lawyers at Snap, according to trade publication Corporate Counsel.

Lanciault took LinkedIn this month to tout the “many contributions” of some employees swept away by layoffs from the Santa Monica, Calif.-based company.

Snap and its general counsel, Michael O’Sullivan, did not respond to requests for comment on Lanciault’s hiring. The company separate ways earlier this year with Assistant General Counsel and former Chief Compliance Officer Dominic Perella, a former appellate litigation partner at Hogan Lovells who left Snap to take a sabbatical.

New platoon regime

Albarrán, Peloton’s new attorney, is a former partner at Covington & Burling. She joined Uber in 2018 after play a key role on an internal investigation for sexual harassment within the company.

An Uber spokeswoman said Albarrán will stay with the ride-sharing giant until the end of the month as the San Francisco-based company finalizes plans to transition his role. Uber’s chief legal officer, Tony West, said in a statement that he has known and worked with Albarrán for more than 20 years.

“Tammy is truly exceptional when it comes to seeing the big picture and solving problems,” West said. “Her excellent judgment and tireless work ethic will stand her in good stead in this new role, and Peloton is extremely lucky to have landed her.”

Albarrán said in a statement that she is “proud of the transformational changes” she and West have brought to Uber and looks forward to her next challenge at Peloton.

“I’ve been an avid Peloton member for years, and my experience with the brand has profoundly influenced and shaped my outlook on community and fitness,” she said. Albarrán added that she was attracted to “the opportunity to make a difference” as Peloton’s top lawyer under Barry McCarthy, its new chief executive.

Michael Del Negro, an attorney hired by Peloton in January as its product safety compliance officer, did not respond to a request for comment on his role at the company. Peloton is facing regulatory inquiries related to its exercise equipment.

Bloomberg News reported earlier this year that cutbacks at Peloton have spared the company’s well-paid instructors led by the head of fitness programming Robin Arzonformer litigation partner at Paul Hastings.

Lucrative concert

Senior legal roles at Peloton and Snap have historically been among the most profitable for lawyers in the in-house field.

Securities filings show that O’Sullivan, Snap’s chief legal officer since 2017, has sold nearly $4.9 million of the company’s stock so far this year. O’Sullivan currently owns Snap shares valued at more than $12 million, according to Bloomberg data.

O’Sullivan’s salary has dropped at Snap in recent years, however. It went from about $9.1 million in 2019 to $7.7 million in 2020 and $5.4 million last year, according to proxy statements filed by the company.

Kushi reaped the benefits of Peloton soaring stock prices during the pandemic after helping take the company public in 2019. He would have sold nearly $93 million in Peloton stock in 2020 and 2021.

Bloomberg data shows Kushi currently owns about $17,000 in the company’s stock. He has not sold any shares of Peloton this year, according to securities filings.

“As a pastor, what I need is understanding from believers and a little rest. Comforting and helping others, we too are human beings in need of support.”

Many churches emphasize the Great Commission, the feeding of believers, and community service, which are undoubtedly very important. But in the meantime, few people pay attention to the needs of pastors. While pastors really need more study, input or prayer support, one experienced pastor said he only wants a vacation after busy work.

Recently, the Christian times, an online Christian newspaper in China, interviewed Pastor G (pseudonym) who leads two churches with rich pastoral experience. Disabled in his 40s, G was issued a “disability certificate” by the authorities. His answers are written in the first person as follows.

The best thing for me is having one day off a week. I took my Monday off, but who replaces me to do so many things? At any time, someone can come to me with difficulties, such as a problem that needs to be fixed or a bad thing that has happened to them.

Not only me, but many other pastors do not have the chance to rest, as well as the retreats. Some foreign pastors have a sabbatical year every seven years, but this is totally absent in China.

So, I don’t know about other pastors, but for me, I think what a pastor needs most is rest, as well as understanding from church members, not too much, just a little.

Christians are accustomed to receiving pastoral care from pastors without gratitude, because they think it is the duty of the pastor to help them. I think they have a bad attitude, although it is right for pastors to pray and help them.

I just want to say that a pastor should feed the believers, but I am a handicapped person who also has many inconveniences and difficulties that other healthy people cannot imagine.

Once a believer asked me, “Pastor G, since you work so hard, what do you want us to do for you?” I said, “That’s fine, but just put yourself in my shoes. If you’re willing to pray for me, that’s even better.

Coming off the season opener, Denver Broncos head coach Nathaniel Hackett is likely rethinking some things. The wisdom of resting 99% of its starters during the preseason was called into question with the Broncos’ sloppy, disjointed and hazy debut in Seattle last week.

Adding injury to insult (you read that right), Hackett’s main goal for resting his starters – avoiding the injury bug – was negated by a seemingly unprepared team who were brutalized by an opponent who didn’t was no stranger to the live-ball intensity of the NFL regular. season.

Despite the rapid growth of Oktait is (OKTA -5.12%) identity and access management end marketinvestors sold the stock aggressively so far this year. Unfortunately, things didn’t improve after the company released its results for the second quarter of fiscal 2023, as investors fell almost 34%.

Here are three reasons why Okta shares imploded after the earnings release.

1. Profits fall as interest rates rise

The risk of investing in unprofitable, high-growth companies increases dramatically when the Federal Reserve raises interest rates, because it becomes much more difficult for these companies to raise the capital they need to grow. As a result, investors, uncomfortable with increased risk, often sell unprofitable companies once they believe the Federal Reserve is planning to raise interest rates aggressively.

Okta’s troubles began once the Federal Reserve signaled its intention to fight inflation with interest rate hikes at its December 15, 2021 meeting. Since then, the stock has fallen nearly 71%, a loss exacerbated by its high unprofitability.

The company’s net income (a measure of profitability) began a significant downward trend in mid-2021, creating a nightmarish scenario for Okta of declining profitability in a rising interest environment.

OKTA given by Y-Charts

Investors shouldn’t expect a quick rebound in Okta shares as long as interest rates rise. Moreover, the stock will fall further if its profitability continues to deteriorate.

2. Auth0 acquisition integration problem

When Okta completed its merger with Auth0 in May 2021, it looked like the perfect marriage. Okta was a leader in workforce identity solutions and Auth0 was a leader in customer identity and access management (CIAM). Therefore, management believed that adding Auth0 as an add-on could make Okta the most dominant company in the identity and access management industry.

A chart lists the strategic rationale for merging Okta and Auth0

Image source: Okta.

Shortly after the acquisition, management optimistically released long-term growth projections for the combined company of $4 billion in revenue by fiscal year 2026. However, the marriage between the two companies has seen off to a rocky start and its $4 billion revenue projection has recently been called into question, for two reasons.

First, the company was overly optimistic about how quickly it could integrate the two companies’ sales teams, especially since Okta and Auth0’s marketing plans were drastically different. Historically, Okta marketed to senior management like the Chief Information Officer and Chief Security Officer. In contrast, Auth0 vendors were selling their product more directly to developer teams within a company. In the short term, crafting a new, streamlined marketing plan for sellers selling the right identity product to the right company proved difficult. As a result, management said sales integration is the primary reason it may not meet its initial fiscal 2026 revenue guidance.

The second reason the company is less confident in its initial revenue forecast is that the combined company is losing salespeople much faster than management would like, with most of the loss coming from the departure of former Auth0 salespeople. Okta plans to stem those losses by improving the compensation structure and hiring new salespeople. However, investors should not expect quick fixes to this problem.

3. Okta’s significant leadership changes

CEO Todd McKinnon announced during the company’s Aug. 31 earnings call that Frederic Kerrest, executive vice president and chief operating officer, who also co-founded Okta, is taking a one-year sabbatical from from November 1. Kerrest will remain on the board during his leave, but McKinnon did not explain how the company plans to replace his position as chief operating officer.

Then, in a punchline, McKinnon said Chief Product Officer Diya Jolly was leaving the company, not least because she’s tasked with helping to align Okta’s product teams with its new sales strategy. . The company plans to split the role of Jolly between two people. Going forward, one person will lead one product strategy for the customer identity cloud and another for the workforce identity cloud.

Of course, the market did not like the departure of these two key executives at a critical time for the company.

Should I buy the stock?

If you’re looking for a solid long-term opportunity, Okta has a long growth streak. It had generated $1.6 billion in 12-month revenue by the end of July 2022. Therefore, out of a total addressable market of $55 billion, it only penetrated 2.9% of its market. Additionally, the company continues to rapidly grow revenue, with revenue growth of 43% year-over-year in the second quarter of fiscal 2023.

The ride could be bumpy in the short term. Therefore, impatient or risk-averse investors would be better off avoiding this stock as long as the Federal Reserve raises interest rates.

Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life premiered on Netflix in 2016. While fans of the original series clamored for a reboot for years before it was announced, not everyone liked the final product. The reasons for fans’ lackluster feelings about the reboot are varied. Some hate what Rory Gilmore had become; others argue that the four-part special felt disjointed. Not everyone agrees on what went wrong. They mostly agree that the Netflix reboot missed a golden opportunity. The revival did not use Melissa McCarthy, the actor who spent seven seasons playing Sookie St. James.

Sookie St. James only appeared briefly on ‘Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life’

Melissa McCarthy played a major role in Gilmore Girls. McCarthy portrayed Sookie St. James, Lorelai Gilmore’s best friend, colleague, and later business partner. The character appeared in 153 of the series’ 154 episodes and provided plenty of levity and intensity. For some people Gilmore Girls fans, McCarthy’s character was their absolute favorite.

Morning Coffee: A senior banker with the best summer vacation eases his return to work.

Georges Elhedery is back. And if anyone had a memorable winter, spring and summer vacation, it was him. He doesn’t immediately get back to work either: after his absence, George will slowly get back into the swing of things.

For those who have forgotten who George is during his long rest, he is/was co-head of investment banking at HSBC, a job he has only done since 2020, although he has done quite a bit big jobs at HSBC since 2005. Until yesterday the last time we heard from George was late January 2022, when he said he was going on a six-month sabbatical to focus on his “own personal growth” and to travel with his family and explore “a number of personal interests”. Elhedery said a breakout of this magnitude was made possible because the investment bank met its 2022 year-end strategic goals a year ahead of schedule.

When bankers go on sabbatical, they tend to stay on sabbatical, or at least decide they want another job while they’re away. Witness Sanj Sivarajahhead of special situations for emerging markets at JPMorgan, who was last seen riding a motorcycle through the mud in April and has now decided not to return to his position as JPM.

Elhedery, however, is back. Six months later, and presumably wiser, more balanced and better rested, he returned to HSBC to resume his old role. It won’t happen right away, however. After six months off, he will start working on a some projects for CEO Noel Quinn and keep up to date with everything that happened while he was gone. He will also travel and meet colleagues in Asia.

This all sounds really good for George. But the problem with sabbaticals, and especially with sabbaticals that involve a total disconnect and then a smooth reintroduction, is that while the person on the sabbatical is diving into their passions, someone else has to do his work. In George’s case, it’s Greg. – Greg Guyett is George’s co-head at the top of HSBC’s global banking and markets business, but Greg has run the business single-handedly (albeit with the help of market professionals from George’s team) since February and this arrangement will continue as George now delves into it.

It’s not really clear how Greg feels about this, but one indication that he wasn’t very happy with the added burden came after George first announced his sabbatical and Greg said that he would not immediately move to Hong Kong as planned because “adding a personal move to the expansion of my responsibilities is a bridge too far,” the heels sounded.

The question now is whether George stays, whether Greg stays, and whether one or both move to Hong Kong. Both were initially on the list to emigrate from London, but George seemed get out of it in early 2021. Now that he’s had his sabbatical, he might be calmer about moving. Or maybe George can stay in London and Greg will have to pack his bags now that the favorite prodigal son is back.

Separately, as Gen Z replaces Millennials as the generation courted and celebrated by organizations seeking young, cheap talent, investment banks may be out of luck. Voice captures the tendency of young people today to eschew hard work and ambition in favor of a good appearance, a good life, and perhaps a wealthy spouse. “I don’t want to be a boss. I don’t want to hustle,” a Zeitgeist rep says on ICT Tac. “I just want to live my life slowly and lay in a bed of foam with my lover and enjoy the rest of my life reading books, creating art and loving myself and the people in my life. .” Banks may need to make further adjustments to analyst programs.

Academic turned political activist Yogendra Yadav has decided to opt for a “two-year” leave from Samyukt Kisan Morcha (SKM). Professor Yadav, who plays a key role in planning SKM activities, will soon join the Bharat Jodo Yatra led by Congress President Rahul Gandhi. He got permission from the SKM general assembly, held here on Sunday, to go on leave.

Talk to The Hindu, Professor Yadav said that over the next two years he will be fully involved in an effort to build a bridge between political parties and popular movements, farmers’ and workers’ movements and anti-Citizenship movements Amendment Act (CAA). He said he would coordinate not just with Congress, but with all political parties that offer genuine resistance. “Right now, the challenge is to save the country and the Constitution,” he added.

He said his attempt has been to try to connect struggles, such as the farmers’ protests against the Three Farm Bills, to the broader struggles in the country. “For the next two years, I have decided to devote all my energy to building the bridge between the popular movements and the political parties that are formally committed to the defense of constitutional democracy. Given my involvement in this effort, I just wouldn’t have time to focus on the work of the SKM and that may not be fair because as I build this bridge I may not be able to represent just one of the movements exclusively,” said Professor Yadav.

He said he wanted to take the experience he gained from the farmers’ movement to the next level. “What good is this experience of it only stopping at the repeal of three laws. We do not know, if after two years we will have this Constitution of the country or that it [the country] will be made a Hindu Rashtra from India. So right now, every success must be tied to this larger challenge. Whatever lessons I have learned, whatever contacts I have built and whatever relationships I have, I will use them to build a bridge between opposition parties and resistance movements. . The parliamentary opposition and the opposition in the streets, they must unite,” he added.

He said his work in the immediate future will be linked to anything that contributes to the 2024 general election, such as Bharat Jodo Yatra initiated by the Congress. “Tomorrow we would be very happy to support if another party takes such an initiative. The objective is very clear, the objective is not any party, any leader. We are as if we were in 1930s Germany. At that time, if someone said that I wanted to increase three parliamentary seats for my party, it would sound like a joke. This is the situation we find ourselves in,” said he added.

On the political dividend of people’s movements, he said that during the elections in Uttar Pradesh, the SKM held press conferences against the BJP. “But the results told us that it was not enough. We need to find ways to translate that energy into electoral politics. If this bridge building does not happen in advance, on time, then it has no consequences. Pay attention to who wins and who loses. Right now, the most important task is paramount,” he said.

He said his organization, the Jai Kisan Andolan, will remain with the SKM, and Avik Saha, its national president, will replace him in the central committee. “I will continue to function as a volunteer of SKM,” he added.
