After officially joining the Los Angeles Lakers front office, Magic Johnson will not be able to fulfill his duties at ESPN. Richard Deitsch of Sports Illustrated provided a statement from ESPN: The Lakers announced Tuesday Johnson would be the team's new president of basketball operations with general manager Mitch Kupchak and vice president of basketball operations Jim Buss both being relieved of their duties. Johnson had only returned to ESPN in December, first appearing on television during the Christmas Day coverage on NBA Countdown . Per ESPN Media Zone , he had been an NBA studio analyst with the company from 2008-13. However, he now has a much tougher job ahead of him as he tries to turn around a team that is 19-39 through the All-Star break. The franchise is seven years removed from back-to-back championships, but it also hasn't won 30 games in a season since 2012-13.

Chandrasekaran attended a meeting of the Tata Sons remuneration and nomination committee and chaired his first board meeting at Bombay House after that. Among those he met were two group veterans, Tata Trusts nominee Krishna Kumar and his former boss at TCS S Ramadorai, apart from several senior executives to take stock of the various businesses. The board of Tata Sons, including its new boss, thanked Ratan Tata for stepping in as interim chairman after Mistry’s ouster. Mistry took the fight to shareholders before stepping down from the board of listed Tata companies in December. Both sides accused each other of poor business decisions and weak corporate governance norms. Mistry is currently waging a legal battle with the group for allegedly oppressing his minority shareholder rights. Mistry’s family holds an 18.4% stake in Tata Sons. Tata Trusts, a group of charitable organisations controlled by Ratan Tata, hold a 66% stake.

MUMBAI: The Reserve Bank of India is proposing its toughest measures yet to recover loans from defaulters by prescribing December deadline for the loan restructuring of top 50 defaulters in a way that the assets turn viable and also in an environment where vigilance departments do not stifle the right economic outcome. Picking up from where former governor Raghuram Rajan left, deputy governor Viral Acharya proposed setting up two asset management companies, one private and the other quasi with government stakeholding, and two rating agencies for valuation of stressed assets. The rate of bad loans has come to such an alarming level that banks should be shown some ‘tough love’ by barring those non-performers from taking deposits and lending. In some cases, merger of banks should also be considered to reduce dependence on government capital. “This situation should be a cause for concern to all of us,” Deputy Governor Acharya told an audience at a conference organised by the Indian Banks Association.

It was a small victory for many of the protesters, until Japans Supreme Court overturned the lawsuit in December 2016, and work resumed in February. Protecting Future Generations Id never taken part in any civil movement before, says Onaga, the sleeping bag councilwoman. I was even scared to just do a sit-in, because I wasnt used to it. At demonstrations outside military bases, Japanese riot police gather and physically carry protesters out of the area. In one late-night protest, the riot police formed a human fence to block us as construction material was transported into the military base, she says. The police hit me in the back and broke my rib. It took a month and a half to heal, and it was very scary and painful. Onaga says women are a big part of the protest movement because they want to protect future generations.
