Good governance codes are mandatory for companies whose shares are traded on the stock market, so strict fulfillment of these codes is not really CSR, which has the intrinsic characteristic of being voluntary. As for smaller companies, if they decide to be more transparent in their governance and they communicate that point voluntarily, that is a CSR measure and it can have a very positive effect, depending on the circumstances. Optimists believe that the recession is going to strengthen CSR because society feels more strongly that companies need to manage their operations under this paradigm if they don want to disappear.

Remember how Jimbo Fisher called leaving Florida State for Texas A a “no brainer” on Monday? The Seminoles certainly do.

SCHRAGER ON THE SCENE: Mr. Suh! The Radio City crowd reacts with a “Suuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuh”. I like that.

It hasn’t been as planned, but I definitely want to be here.”The Cavaliers, though, had other plans and needed to do something rash while in a prolonged slump and with All Star forward Kevin Love out with a broken left hand.Thomas, who turned 29 on Wednesday, wasn’t working out. He missed Cleveland’s first 36 games while coming back from a torn right labrum that knocked him out of last year’s playoffs. The Cavs tried to incorporate him into their offense, but it was forced and bogging them down.Cleveland is just 7 13 since Christmas Day, and the club’s slide has coincided with Thomas’ comeback.

Mark Cuban and I rarely see eye to eye: in part because he’s five inches taller than me and in part because, like the kids on the old Bill Cosby show, he has a penchant for saying the darndest things; he’s one of those guys who seemingly courts controversy and in doing so, frequently suffers foot in mouth syndrome. Which is why, over the years, the NBA has fined him more than $1.5 million for assorted verbal incidents and accidents. Still, love him or hate him, when it comes to sports and business and the marriage between the two, he knows a thing or two, or three.

Try to limit your time out in the elements over the next few days. New Year Day we will have a mix of clouds and sun. It will be another bitter cold day. 97 Connor McDavid, 7. Spoke in the first intermission about needing more polish around the net, then showed plenty of it with a pair of nifty finishes in the final two frames.

Cliff Avril roughing the passer penalty gifted Minnesota 15 yards on that drive..

There are better, if not the best odds, that Nelson could be there for the Bucs. Considering that Kevin Pamphile and Evan Smith are expected to hit free agency when the new league year begins March 14, Nelson would fill a glaring need.

Two weeks ago, Corcoran attended a Republican Governors Association meeting in Nashville where prospective 2018 candidates rubbed elbows with GOP governors and deep pocket donors from around the country.

Cuban said the league television package expansion is a poor business decision. The NFL announced in February a one year contract with CBS and NFL Network combining to televise Thursday night games.

My proposal for the division split in the new Big 12 (old Big Ten): South Ohio State Penn State Iowa Illinois Purdue Indiana North Michigan Nebraska Wisconsin Michigan State Northwestern Minnesota Besides the five mandated division opponents each season, there would be two permanent seasonal opponents from the opposite division and one alternating opponent from that division.

Mowins, who has called college football for the network since 2005 and who has done play by play for the Oakland Raiders, will call the second part of the season opening “Monday Night Football” doubleheader Sept. 11 when the Los Angeles Chargers play at Denver.

Will mean a different kind of campaign. There will have to be more of an effort to raise funds from smaller donors and, of course, Vision has, presumably, a machine that can do that. Solomon, chair of venture capital firm Renewal Funds and longtime Vision backer, expects a struggle to replace Robertson.

Trivia question: Name the leading rusher in the AFC in 2015? Answer: Latavius Murray with 1,035 yards. Chris Ivory is second. It’s a reminder about how low NFL rushing yards are this year Adrian Peterson could win the rushing title and not eclipse 1,500 yards.

My hope is he wins a couple more Super Bowls between now and the day the final curtain drops. But if he doesn so what? Let the man take his victory lap and drive down Route 1 into the sunset.

He started the season off with a reduced role as the third linebacker. But he ended up playing nearly 60 percent of the snaps due to injuries to Anthony Barr and Eric Kendricks. The fact that he usually wasn’t an every down player affected his tackle total, but I think the lesser load helped him..

The Giants issues extend beyond Beckham. Their offensive line is a mess and quarterback Eli Manning was constantly under pressure in the loss to the Cowboys.

In a little over a year, three NFL franchises have moved , announced a resettlement or filed paperwork seeking to relocate .California is once again at the heart of this shift.The Rams returned last year, ending the NFL’s 21 year absence from the nation’s second largest media market.

But society’s de stigmatization of gambling and the NFL’s embrace of daily fantasy sports companies have combined to create an environment where the city of blackjack tables is a viable option for the silver and black.”I think the understanding that Las Vegas is a growing, booming town and an acceptance that gambling is not much of an image deterrent as it might have been in the past” makes Nevada a desired NFL destination for the first time, suggested Denver Broncos president Joe Ellis, who sits on the league’s stadium committee.Marketplace realities have long interfered with fan loyalties in this country’s four major sports leagues.”It’s very hard when teams move,” Ellis said.

As the NFL Most Valuable Player in 1956 he brought the Giants to a league championship.

Saturday/Sunday midnight update from Ben:We are still in line for strong to severe storms Sunday afternoon, but first we’ll have to deal with the fog.

This past year I attended all of Humboldt County high school games, Believe me when I say, The parents were cursing, yelling at all the couches and referees. I talked to a few of these referees and they are, at times, scared to walk to their cars after the game. What about the coaches that play all their relatives? Let see: sons, daughters, nieces, nephews and distant cousins removed twice.

The pick: The Bengals appeared to be as bad a football team as we ever seen in stripes during the first two weeks of the season and Andy Dalton looked like anything but a competent NFL starter. But then they fired Offensive Coordinator Ken Zampese and immediately looked like a different team, taking the Packers to overtime then beating the Browns and the Bills. Coming in off their bye with an extra week to prepare, we wonder whether the Cincy team we see Sunday will be ever better.

Normally, this light is associated with star formation and enables astronomers to detect regions where new stars are forming. In the case of NGC 1266, however, this light was coming from an extremely confined region of the galaxy. Very small area was almost too small for the infrared light to be coming from star formation, Alatalo.With ALMA’s exquisite sensitivity and resolution, and along with observations from CARMA (the Combined Array for Research in Millimeter wave Astronomy), the astronomers were then able to trace the location of the very dense molecular gas at the galactic center.
