They are a strong, physical side with an impressive midfield able to distribute the ball well and develop chances. Where they are lacking, like other teams, is with a consistent goal-scorer up front who can finish the chances. Denmark can draw on the experience of players with top rank European credentials like Niklas Bendtner of Arsenal, Christian Poulsen of Juventus and Liverpool’s Daniel Agger.Matches:last_img read more

Microsoft’s Nadella backtracks comment about women’s pay raisesMicrosoft CEO Satya Nadella has gotten a lot of grief over comments he made at the Grace Hopper Celebration of Women in Computing conference yesterday. When asked what advice he would give to women who are uncomfortable asking for a raise, he stated: “It’s not really about asking for a raise, but knowing and having faith that the system will give you the right raise…It’s good karma, It will come back.”Since then, Nadella has taken a step back and apologized for what he said.“I answered that question completely wrong. Without a doubt I wholeheartedly support programs at Microsoft and in the industry that bring more women into technology and close the pay gap. I believe men and women should get equal pay for equal work. And when it comes to career advice on getting a raise when you think it’s deserved, Maria’s advice was the right advice. If you think you deserve a raise, you should just ask,” he wrote in a memo to all Microsoft employees.Nadella’s interview can he found here.The Internet.org Innovation Challenge in IndiaInternet.org has announced a contest to recognize those who make the Internet more relevant for four population groups in India.Developers from all around the world are invited to participate in the contest to create unique and localized content that would impact the daily lives of Indian women, students, farmers and migrant workers.
