KUALA LUMPUR: The tenure of independent directors should not exceed nine years, according the new Malaysian Code on Corporate Governance launched by the Securities Commission (SC) today. This is one of the key practices introduced by the SC to enhance corporate governance among the listed companies. According to the SC, 810 independent directors have served for more than nine years, with the longest tenure being 37 years. "This new code is an important milestone in Malaysia's continued journey in promoting good corporate governance to ensure the sustainability and resilience of the capital market. It serves as a compass for boards to steer their companies forward and deepen understanding on the importance of corporate governance," said SC chairman Tan Sri Ranjit Ajit Singh at the launch of the new Malaysian Code on Corporate Governance here. Besides that, the code requires half of the boards to comprise independent directors, while large companies need to have a majority of independent directors.

In a shocking revelation, former Israeli Defense Minister Moshe Ya'alon (Likud), who served from 2013 until mid-2016, revealed that the November gunbattle between Israeli troops and ISIS forces along the Golan frontier, materially the only significant fight between the two sides, was followed up with an ISIS apology . Being ISIS generally speaking means never having to say you're sorry, and the group has no real allies so it generally doesn't come up. That ISIS felt the need to apologize to Israel for the brief clash, which had no Israeli casualties, speaks volumes about the group's position. Ya'alon revealed this apology in the context of comments about Israel's policy in Syria, and its repeated airstrikes against Syrian military targets whenever any cross-border fire is reported has led Syria to repeatedly complain that Israel is a de facto ally of the rebels.

Its only been a few days since Starbucks closed the curtain on its made-for-Instagram Unicorn Frappuccino , but the follow-up flavors are flowing. One Starbucks in California conjured up the Dragon Frappuccino , while another location is mixing up Unicorn Lemonades . But perhaps the most magically inspired drink has come from Disneyland. The Starbucks located at Downtown Disney , adjacent to the Disneyland theme park, in Anaheim, California, blended together the Pink Pegasus and served it as a store exclusive. The Unicorn may have sped away, but we have the Downtown Disney Store Exclusive Pink Pegasus Frappuccino while supplies last!! ❤️#themagicliveson #starbucks #magic #pegasus #starbucks19311 #yum #tobeapartner A post shared by Starbucks 19311 (@starbucks19311) on Apr 21, 2017 at 11:20am PDT -- This feed and its contents are the property of The Huffington Post, and use is subject to our terms.

The haka is always a powerful show of Mari culture and identity, but you can really feel the force in this one. Tuesday marked ANZAC Day, a day to commemorate Australians and New Zealanders who served and died in armed conflicts around the world. In recent years, it's also been a day to recognise the impact that war has on the mental health of veterans. It's culminated in the Haka For Life, a show of support for men's mental health. SEE ALSO: How weird sleep schedules can affect our mental health 200 men, women and children performed the traditional war cry at Kings Park in Perth, Australia, according to The West Australian .

(It was well timed to become a springtime Frappuccino blended beverage, akin to last years Birthday Cake Frappuccino. Strangely, despite its siren icon, it did not select the sister trend: mermaid food .) But it also perhaps had broader concerns. While its unlikely the unicorn was a direct response, for several months Starbucks had become mired in politicking, and over the past year, its stock has remained relatively stagnant at least in part because of its to the Presidents actions. After Trump announced a January travel ban, then-CEO Howard Schultz announced a plan to hire 10,000 [ refugees ] over five years in the 75 countries around the world where Starbucks does business. It would begin in the United States and focus on those individuals who have served with U.S. troops as interpreters and support personnel in the various countries where our military has asked for such support.

Most importantly, however, I remember the hype we were served up in school, on at least a weekly, if not daily, basis: according to our Weekly Readers , we were on the verge of a whole new era of space exploration; lunar landings today, lunar colonies tomorrow, Mars exploration and colonies before the century was out. Accompanying all this hype were the artists' renderings of what all of this was supposed to look like. And it would all be accomplished by chemical rockets... and I remember the embarrassment of many teachers as the more precocious among us pointed out the difficulties of doing all these splendid things with chemical rockets. With that in mind, now the article: Is NASA Covering Up the 100-Year Starship? Now, permit me to pass directly to my high octane speculation of the day, for what is interesting here is the whole implicit assumption hovering in the background here, that assumption being that were going to colonize planets, or for that matter(to turn to the other favorite meme) mine asteroids, with chemical rockets.

N. Children's Fund and the World Food Program. The Trump administration announced earlier this month that it would no longer fund the U.N. Population Fund, which provides lifesaving care to millions of women and girls around the world. “None of us believe the U.N. is perfect, but we all believe it remains an essential tool in America's foreign policy and national security tool box,” said Madeleine Albright, who served as President Bill Clinton's U.N. ambassador and later as the first female secretary of state. “Whether we are dealing with North Korea, Iran, Iraq or Mali, the U.N. plays a vital and unique role in galvanizing the global community and increasing pressure on rogue actors and meeting humanitarian needs on the ground,” she told reporters during a conference call about the letter. Leadership role at risk She warned that if the U.S. retreats on its financial contributions, other powers such as Russia and China will move to fill the gap, potentially taking the U.

Our work serves to reinforce that physical evidence. What is happening here is the process of paradigm change. It appearsbekli Tepe was, among other things, an observatory for monitoring the night sky. “One of its pillars seems to have served as a memorial to this devastating eventprobably the worst day in history since the end of the ice age.” Gobekli Tepe, is thought to be the world's oldest temple site, which dates from around 9,000BC, predating Stonehenge by around 6,000 years. Researchers believe the images were intended as a record of the cataclysmic event, and that a further carving showing a headless man may indicate human disaster and extensive loss of life. S ymbolism on the pillars also indicates that the long-term changes in Earth’s rotational axis was recorded at this time using an early form of writing, and that Gobekli Tepe was an observatory for meteors and comets.

I served in all commissioned ranks from a second Lieutenant to a Major General. And during that time, I spent most of my time being a high-class muscle man for Big Business, for Wall Street, and for the bankers. In short, I was a racketeer for capitalism. General Smedley Butler , one of the highest ranking generals in American History At the moment, everyone is pointing the finger at Trump, which they should given what he has said on TV and the actions the U.S. has taken under his control.' An interesting thing to note that has to be shared given the discussion I've had with insiders is: Trump's administration has been receiving cooked intel about what's happening in other areas of the world from members of the cabal — in other words, it has been infiltrated. That being said, who knows if he's receiving the right information or not? We know for certain that a secret government, for lack of a better term, is really calling most of the shots.

Many people feel that France has lost its national sovereignty to the European Union, which is understandable. The EU has tried to implement some questionable trade deals like the TTIP and has strong ties to the financial elite. It's no wonder people like Macron support the EU and that some people are questioning the EU's overall antics (read more about the EU in our CE Brexit article here ). Nationalism and patriarchy don't have to be bad things, either. In the past, they've been tainted with an air of separatism. That's because historically people have used patriarchy to defend their support for war and foreign invasion, which is where the problem with patriarchy lies. However, there's a big difference between appreciation for your culture and identification with it. It's perfectly fine to appreciate and be grateful for the country you were born in or the country you live in and recognize how that has served you.

“No, we wont do that. I promise you we wont do that.” The former ambassadors, a combination of diplomats who served under Republican and Democratic administrations, include Samantha Power, Susan Rice, John Negroponte, Bill Richardson, Madeleine Albright, Edward Perkins, Thomas Pickering, Donald McHenry and Andrew Young. In the letter, they acknowledged the U.N.’s shortcomings — they said it’s imperfect and needs reform — but insisted that it “remains an indispensable instrument for advancing the global stability and prosperity on which U.S. interests and priorities depend.” “We therefore urge you to support U.S. leadership at the U.N., including through continued payment of our assessed and voluntary financial contributions to the Organization,” they wrote. Highlighting the conflict in the Middle East, a saber-rattling North Korea and the growing threat of extremism and organized crime, the former diplomats argued that “[t]he U.
