The Huntington Library, Art Museum, and Botanical GardensThe Huntington Library, Art Museum, and Botanical Gardens announced today the appointment of Misty Bennett as chief human resources officer. Bennett, corporate director of talent and culture at Rosewood Hotel Group, begins her new role at The Huntington on Jan. 27, 2021. She will join The Huntington’s senior leadership team and report to the vice president and chief financial officer.“Misty’s impressive experience with HR strategy and talent management, her innate curiosity, and her ready ability to solve problems and present fresh ideas made her an absolute standout during the recruitment process,” said Janet Alberti, Anne and Jim Rothenberg Vice President and Chief Financial Officer at The Huntington. “The search committee and I were particularly struck by the parallels between Misty’s background in hospitality and The Huntington’s own culture of exceptional visitor service. We are so very pleased to have her joining The Huntington at this pivotal moment, as we are stepping into our next hundred years.”Bennett, a native of Kansas City, Missouri, holds a bachelor’s degree in business administration and hospitality management from Howard University in Washington, D.C., and comes to The Huntington with more than 20 years of hospitality and human resources experience at Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts and, more recently, Rosewood. Among her key strengths: talent acquisition and retention, executive and leadership coaching, employee relations and advocacy, and talent development.“I am a huge fan of The Huntington, its mission, its beauty, and intellectual depth, but I am especially inspired by the level of staff engagement and commitment,” Bennett said. “In particular, I know that for several years, the staff have been working in a very focused way on matters of diversity, inclusion, and equity, and that this is among the institution’s highest priorities. I cannot wait to join and help lead that initiative. I look forward to working with our talented staff on a range of related issues, and I am particularly excited about the prospect of helping the institution engage an even greater array of audiences, particularly underrepresented populations.” The Huntington recently launched a Strategic Plan for Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion with specific goals over a five-year period.In her work at the Four Seasons, Bennett served as a board member for the National Society of Minorities in Hospitality and successfully recruited and placed more than 20 managers of color, a 30% increase year over year. She also spearheaded the diversity and inclusion strategy for national college and university recruitment for the Four Seasons.Bennett has been the corporate director for talent and culture in the Los Angeles office of Rosewood Hotel Group since 2018. Based in Hong Kong, Rosewood Group is one of the leading hotel companies worldwide. In her position there, Bennett oversees both domestic and international staff recruitment across the Americas, among other duties. Before moving to Rosewood Group, Bennett spent nearly two decades in human resources at Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts, most recently in St. Louis.At The Huntington, whose staff numbers just under 500, Bennett will oversee all aspects of human resources, including talent acquisition and development, retention, HR policy and procedures, staff benefits, employee engagement, performance management, and workplace culture and community, among other related areas of responsibility.About The HuntingtonThe Huntington Library, Art Museum, and Botanical Gardens, a collections-based research and educational institution, aspires to be a welcoming place of engagement and reflection for a diverse community.

Buffett: Economy Will Hurt if Uninsured Harvey Losses Top $150 Billion

That’s going to be a big determinate I would think. And the sad reality is that in real estate as long as there’s real estate to buy, one person’s misfortune is another persons opportunity.”There are those in the industry that are venturing guesses. Moody’s Analytics projects loss in southeast Texas to be between $51 billion and $75 billion, with home and vehicle damage estimated at $30 billion to $40 billion. However, total losses could continue to rise as the storm moves into Louisiana. According to Buffett, if those uninsured losses top $150 billion, there will be noticeable effects on the economy.”I don’t think it would be a full percentage point for a year or anything like that. But it has a real effect. It destroys wealth. If there’s $150 billion, or something, of uninsured losses that’s real wealth,” Buffett said on CNBC’s “Squawk on the Street.”The main point of concern is lack of flood insurance take-up by homeowners, which will delay reconstruction efforts, according to Moody’s Analytics. Moody’s expects a majority of Harvey’s impact to fall on the residential housing market. Even though Warren said Harvey’s arrival offered a fair amount of warning, if the storm continues its damage in Louisiana, losses as a share of GDP could overtake Hurricane Andrew and the Northridge Earthquake of 1994.”It’s how you perform at a time like this that really defines whether your insurance company is doing the right job,” Buffett said.

Earth Day 2020: Activating Change

first_imgThis year, Earth Day comes at a time when we are all adjusting to a new way of life. To protect the health of our global community, we are all doing our part – staying at home, observing social distancing guidelines, and embracing new virtual ways of staying connected. And with the world’s largest environmental event moving online, it reinforces that while protecting human health is the priority, there are also many ways we can continue to engage and remain steadfast in our commitment to the health of our planet.Sustainability has always been at the center of everything we do at Dell Technologies. We’re proud of what we have accomplished to date, but there is so much more we want to do. It’s why advancing sustainability is a critical part of our Progress Made Real plan which includes specific, measurable goals we want to achieve by the year 2030, including an ambitious ‘moonshot’ goal in each area, designed to push the boundaries of innovation and partnerships to achieve these.Accelerating the circular economyOur moonshot goal for sustainability is that by the year 2030, for every product a customer buys, we will reuse or recycle an equivalent product, 100% of our packaging, and more than half of our product content will be made from recycled or renewable material. Our focus on accelerating the circular economy, activating partnerships between the public and private sectors, and pursuing materials and supply chain innovation is how we are going to get there.A great example of this is our work with Carbon Conversions, a start-up based in South Carolina which redesigned the way we use non-woven carbon fiber scraps in our products, allowing us to use even more of this waste material from the aerospace industry. Another is our work with NextWave plastics, supporting collaboration between large companies (IKEA, GM and HP, to name a few) to create a viable supply chain for ocean-bound plastics, and come up with ways to incorporate this material into future products and packaging.Committing to the climateThe theme of this year’s Earth Day is ‘climate action.’ Right now, there is a lot of attention on how staying at home is helping to reduce emissions. Dubbed ‘The Great Pause,’ this completely unique situation is providing us with insights into how changes to human behavior can make a significant impact. And as the world comes out of this, we can expect discussions about how we can continue to support this picture of a better world. One thing is for sure, technology will be a key contributor – virtual interactions, collaboration and communication methods – are all ways we can drive positive change today, and tomorrow.We know the consequences of climate change adversely impact the planet and our communities around the world, and we believe that technology has an important role to play in both mitigating and adapting to climate change. We have committed not only to set emissions goals across our facilities, supply chain and operations but to also look at how our customers can use our technology to advance their own sustainability and emissions goals. One example is our work with Ducks Unlimited, who are using our sensor technology to protect wetlands which not only are home to wildlife, but also serve as a natural resource to reduce greenhouse gases.Celebrating 50 years of Earth DayA huge part of our success in the area of sustainability is the talent and passion our team members have for supporting their planet. From the designers and engineers delivering innovative sustainable solutions for our products and packaging, to the environmental initiatives being driven out of our facilities teams, through to our team member engagement in delivering on our goals – we literally could not make progress without them. On Earth Day, our team members will be supporting Earth Challenge 2020, a virtual volunteering opportunity for millions of people to support the world’s largest citizen science effort, recording the quality of the air outside their window. Each reading will add to a global database of knowledge and help scientists understand how our world works and how we can protect it. Click here to join.Right now, the world is experiencing change like never before. And while it is an incredibly uncertain time, it’s also been a time where we have seen the absolute power of the human spirit. It is the collaboration of people working together to respond to a global challenge that inspires me right now. And it reminds me of our purpose as a company, and why our commitment to social impact is so important. As one of the world’s largest technology companies, we have a responsibility to activate change today – and every day – for our people, for society and for the world.last_img read more

The stats that highlight just how poor Manchester United vs Arsenal really was

first_img Comment Andreas Pereira was particularly sloppy in his passing (Via Whoscored )Across the campaign they rank seventh for successful passes, below their traditional top-six rivals, as well as, wait for it, 17th placed Norwich City on an underwhelming 82.1%.They performed fractionally below par against Arsenal, completing 80% of their passes, while Arsenal’s 83.8 per cent average was well down to 77%.Of United’s 439 attempted passes just 353 were successful, while Arsenal succeeded with 273 of their 350. Pretty passing was certainly not on show at Old Trafford.Cancelling each other outHistorically, this has been a fixture with plenty of goals with an average of 2.4 per game across 54 encounters in the Premier League prior to Monday’s match-up.While a return of an only slightly below average two goals doesn’t give away too much, there was very little chance of that tally being added to such was the paucity of premium chances.27 – There have been no shots in the opening 27 minutes of #MUNARS, the longest wait for a first attempt in a single @premierleague game this season.

Battles between the two clubs in the late 1990s and early 2000s defined English football at the time.That has all changed now, though. Whereas United and Arsenal were once in direct competition for the title, they are now scrapping it out just to try and gatecrash the top-four.Much has been made of the declining fortunes of both clubs in recent seasons, but Monday night’s drab 1-1 draw at Old Trafford emphasised how far the mighty really have fallen.Aside from an excellent strike from Scott McTominay for the game’s opening goal and a typically cute Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang finish, it was an encounter remarkably low on quality.AdvertisementAdvertisementADVERTISEMENTThis isn’t one you can expect to see replayed by Sky Sports in years to come.Anyone with a functioning pair of eyes would have been able to report that this was no vintage United vs Arsenal fixture but the statistics really do hammer home that point…Sloppy passingIt will come as a surprise to literally nobody that Pep Guardiola’s playmaker-packed Manchester City side are well out in front when it comes to pass accuracy statistics this season.The reigning champions have completed 89.3% of their passes from their opening seven Premier League games of the season with ten members of their squad averaging over 90%.Regularly finding someone wearing the same colour shirt as yours with an attempted pass is a pretty useful skill but it is one that United’s players seem to have struggled with this season. The stats that highlight just how poor Manchester United vs Arsenal really was Advertisementcenter_img Marcus Rashford has scored just once from open play in ten matches for club and country (Picture: Getty)Since the 4-0 drubbing of Chelsea on the opening day, United have failed to score more than once in a game in all eight of their games and a look at their attacking players’ record over the past few months emphasises their issues going forward.Rashford has scored just twice from open play in his previous 20 matches for club and country. Jesse Lingard has managed one goal in 2019 against Arsenal in January, 21 appearances ago. Andreas Pereira, deployed on the right-wing against Arsenal, has two goals to show from 42 appearances for United.Daniel James – the other starter in United’s front four – has enjoyed a promising start with three goals so far, but even he has tailed off recently, failing to score in his last four matches.Nicolas Pepe’s struggles continueIt is far, far too early to write Arsenal’s club-record signing off at this stage, considering his number of appearances for the club is yet to reach double figures.AdvertisementPatience with Pepe is required and it is worth remembering that it took Thierry Henry until his ninth match for the Gunners to get off the mark. Pepe has already bettered that record with one goal from his opening eight games, albeit from the penalty spot.Nevertheless, it is in these games that Pepe has been signed for. Arsenal’s record against the best of the rest is generally excellent but they have struggled against top-six rivals recently, particularly away from home. Indeed, in a game that both sides would have fancied winning beforehand, they appeared to set up in a ‘must not lose’ manner instead, evidenced by a hesitant opening half an hour.It took until the 29th minute for a shot on goal to officially be registered as Andreas Pereira’s low effort from distance was well fielded by Bernd Leno.Both of these teams were there for the taking but neither seemed to want to take the initiative.United’s firepower lacking a sparkOf the 20 top-scoring players in the Premier League, seven of them have, at one stage in their careers played for Manchester United (yes Michael Owen didn’t exactly set the world alight at Old Trafford but they all count).AdvertisementAdvertisementThroughout the past three decades, United have always relied upon, at the very least, one consistent goalscorer to put the ball in the back of the net of their opponents. Wayne Rooney, Andy Cole, Ruud van Nistelrooy, Cristiano Ronaldo, Eric Cantona etc etc. The list goes on and on.At the moment, though, it is very difficult to see where United’s goals are going to come from. Last season their top-scorer was a central midfielder, Paul Pogba with 13. Marcus Rashford was the most prolific forward still at the club with only ten league goals. Nicolas Pepe lost possession 17 times in total (Picture: Getty)Trying to correct that form is why Arsenal spent so much on Pepe but he struggled to get into his groove under the lights at Old Trafford. According to various sources, Pepe lost possession – through inaccurate passes and crosses as well as unsuccessful dribbles – 17 times overall.Problematically for Pepe, his work was very much overshadowed by 18-year-old newcomer Bukayo Saka on the opposite flank and it was rather telling that it was he who was withdrawn first rather than the England U19 international.Pepe could well go on to become the star that everyone anticipated he would be when Arsenal parted with £72m to sign him in August but it is slightly concerning that his form has dipped since that promising first start against Liverpool.More: FootballRio Ferdinand urges Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to drop Manchester United starChelsea defender Fikayo Tomori reveals why he made U-turn over transfer deadline day moveMikel Arteta rates Thomas Partey’s chances of making his Arsenal debut vs Man CityThey have the same combined points as LiverpoolIt seems slightly unfair to compare either of these sides to the European champions given just how far ahead Jurgen Klopp’s side are at present, but really it shouldn’t be. Manchester United have outspent Liverpool in recent years while Arsenal are not too far behind them.AdvertisementThe current league leaders required a big helping hand from Dean Henderson on Saturday but a hard-fought 1-0 victory at Brammall Lane on Saturday extended Liverpool’s winning run to 16 games in the Premier League, seven of which have come this season.Those seven wins are more than United (two) and Arsenal (three) have managed between them. A demonstration of just how far Liverpool are ahead of these two teams at present is that their points tally is equal to United’s and Arsenal’s combined.The gap is big and it is widening.More: Manchester United FCRio Ferdinand urges Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to drop Manchester United starNew Manchester United signing Facundo Pellistri responds to Edinson Cavani praiseEx-Man Utd coach blasts Ed Woodward for two key transfer errors Advertisementlast_img read more
