City heavyweights Hogan Lovells and Eversheds Sutherland have joined the growing list of firms to have incorporated partners into their statutory gender pay gap report this year. Their respective reports reveal that, when partners are lumped together with all employees, men are paid 52.9% more than women at Hogan Lovells and 58.3% more at Eversheds.However, in the partnership alone, women are paid 2.1% more than men at Hogan Lovells, the second year in a row in which women have fared better than men. Among the partnership alone at Eversheds Sutherland, the pay difference between female and male equity partners was 6.2% in favour of women.At Hogan Lovells, the mean gender pay gap among all employees is 12.3%. However, when comparing only lawyers (associates, senior associates, counsel and consultants) the mean pay gap is 1.8%.Like many firms Hogan Lovells has also produced an ethnicity pay-gap. Among employees only the BAME pay gap is 11.2%, rising to 46.3% when partners are included. The overall BAME workforce is 17%.Firms with 250 or more employees have until Thursday to comply with the Equality Act 2010 (Gender Pay Gap Information) Regulations and report the pay gap between men and women. The regulations stipulate that firms provide a snapshot of the pay gap as of April 4 the previous year. This is the second round of reports.Susan Bright, Hogan Lovells’ regional managing partner for UK and Africa, said: ‘Our partner data continues to underscore the culture and diverse range of talent we have at our firm. Women make up 27% of the UK partnership and 80% of our lateral hires in the UK in 2018 were women. One third of this year’s internal partner promotions in the UK are women, and one quarter of counsel promotions.‘In line with our commitment to increase representation of BAME people at all levels in the firm, we are voluntarily reporting ethnicity pay gap data. We have a very strong record in recruiting BAME students through our graduate recruitment programme, recruiting 47% BAME students for training contracts in the 2017/2018 recruitment round. We are working hard to retain and promote our BAME talent and this is a particular focus of our 2019 UK diversity strategy.’At Eversheds Sutherland, the mean pay difference between all male and female employees was 22.63%. Among lawyers only, men were paid on average 9.28% more.Eversheds declined to reveal an ethncity pay gap but said in a statement accompanying the report: ‘We remain focused on representation at all levels across the firm in relation to ethnicity and are committed to maintaining an inclusive and supportive environment for those who chose to declare their ethnicity; while respecting those who prefer not to say.’ read more
Fellman: “You have to look at the age of the child, and get appropriate toys for the child and their ages and what their development is. For instance, 1-3 year-old kids like to jump, and run, and walk, stuff like that, so soft blocks, large blocks, pushing toys, those types things. 3-5 year-old kids like to use their imagination, so art supplies, teddy bears, dolls, outdoor things, maybe a sled, that type thing, just remember to get a winter helmet if you’re going to be sledding with them.” FacebookTwitterEmailPrintFriendly分享As you put those finishing touches on your Christmas gifts, or perhaps race out for just a few more, Jane Fellman with Safe Kids Kenai Peninsula is encouraging adults to shop carefully… After the presents are unwrapped, Fellman says parents need to check the toys for small items that could become a choking hazard. She urges parents to read labels before gifting any toys. read more

E-mail: [email protected] Long gone are the days when Utah and BYU would play their annual basketball games on Saturday night with no extra games during the week to spoil the buildup to the big game.Thanks to expanded leagues with unbalanced numbers, the Utes and Cougars have been playing on Thursdays and Mondays, in addition to Saturdays in recent years.But in the 97-year, 240-game history of the series have they ever played on a Wednesday before, as they are tomorrow night?Yes.Just once.It happened back in 1984, on the same date, February 8. BYU won the game 82-79 in Salt Lake in what was the first year for coaches Ladell Andersen of BYU and Lynn Archibald of Utah.Of the 240 pervious games in the series, the majority were played on Saturdays (144), followed by Fridays (70). Thirteen games have been played on Thursdays, 10 on Mondays, with two, in 1995 and 1996, on Tuesday.Of course, no Utah-BYU games have ever been played on a Sunday.BEEN A LONG TIME: The last time BYU defeated Utah in Salt Lake most of the current players on the two teams were in elementary school. Utah’s Shaun Green and BYU’s Jackson Emery were in first grade at the time.It happened clear back in 1994 when freshman Robbie Reid dropped a long 3-pointer with 16 seconds left to give the Cougars a 64-62 victory. Since then the Utes have won seven times in Provo.BYU has had its chances, particularly two years ago when the Cougars took a 17-point second-half lead, only to lose 64-56. That was Utah’s first game after Rick Majerus left the team and assistant Kerry Rupp filled in.Seven of the games were decided by nine points or less. The closest game since ’94 was a 71-66 Ute win in 2002, while the largest margin was the 85-49 win in 1997 over the 1-25 Cougar squad.During the past 12 years, the Utes have won seven times in Provo.NO POWS: For eight of the past 12 years, a Utah player has garnered player of the year honors in the WAC or Mountain West Conference.It obviously isn’t going to happen this year with the Utes struggling in seventh place and no outstanding player.In fact, the way things are going, the Utes might go an entire season without a single player of the week honor. But neither have UNLV, New Mexico or TCU.San Diego State has earned five player of the week honors, followed by three apiece for Air Force and Wyoming and two each for BYU and Colorado State.ON THE MINUS SIDE: Thanks to Colorado State and TCU, the Utes are likely to avoid the dreaded 8 vs. 9 Tuesday night “play-in” game at the MWC Tournament. The Rams and Horned Frogs are tied for last with one league victory and are both minus-3 in the all-important home-loss, road-win standings.The Utes are minus-1 with one road win and two home losses, tied with Wyoming and New Mexico, who are both minus-1, although they are both a game ahead in the regular standings.The other four teams are on the plus side, led by San Diego State at plus-4 (four road wins, no home losses).If Utah wins all of its home games and loses its road games, it will end up at 7-9 in the MWC.UTE NOTES: Wednesday’s game will be televised on KJZZ-TV at 7 p.m . . . Turnovers continue to plague the Ute basketball team. The Utes are last in the MWC in turnover margin at minus-3.35 . . . One of the strengths of this year’s team is rebounding. Utah was leading the MWC a couple of weeks ago and is now third in rebounding margin at plus-4.6, just behind Wyoming and San Diego State at plus-4.8 . . . Chris Jackson continues to lead the MWC in field goal percentage at 75.9 percent . . . After starting against TCU and scoring five points with three assists, Casey Iverson hasn’t played in the last two games . . . The Utes play San Diego State in San Diego Saturday at 1 p.m. MST. read more
