JENNIFER BUFFETT

 Jennifer Buffett leads may not rank among the largest foundations in the U.S., but it is one of the biggest family foundations led by a woman and it gives at a very substantial level: $56.7 million in grants in 2012,

placing it in the 100 largest foundations by giving. And it’s only up from there, given that Warren Buffett has pledged shares of Berkshire Hathaway stock to NoVo that will ultimately total several billion dollars.

 She’s also been a smart and innovative funder, leading NoVo into issues where its resources could make a big difference, like violence against girls and women, sex trafficking, and Social and Emotional Learning, an education approach that stands in refreshing contrast to the business-like focus on metrics and accountability that’s so fashionable in philanthropy.

CAROL LARSON

 David and Lucille Packard Foundation is a giant, giving out $253 million in 2012. And it’s a giant that has been closely molded and guided by Carol Larson, who has been a central figure at the foundation since 1995 and its president since 2004.

She continued to advance in the foundation until she was the obvious choice to be president. Packard’s biggest move since Larson took over has been a historic $500 million commitment to mitigating climate change, funding that has helped transform the climate sector. So it’s hard to pinpoint who really is calling the shots at Packard. Still, we can’t think of another top legacy foundation that has been so dominated by a woman executive.

MEGA-DONORS.

A long with her hedge funder husband Bill Ackman, Karen Ackman oversees the Pershing Square Foundation, one of the more sophisticated funding operations to emerge from the finance world recently.

A landscape architect, Karen sits on the board of New York’s High Line public park, which Ackman money helped build; and Human Rights Watch, which has received major gifts from the couple.

Meet 34 years old Chinese billionaire just in 4 days

Chinese developers including China Evergrande Group have also rallied in Hong Kong trading, boosting the fortunes of their executives. Evergrande’s Hui Ka Yan, whose wealth is estimated at $38.2 billion by the Bloomberg Billionaires Index, is China’s third-richest individual after Alibaba’s Jack Ma and Tencent’s Pony Ma.

A share surge at Country Garden Holdings Co., China’s largest developer by sales, has sent Vice Chairman Yang Huiyan’s wealth up by $2.1 billion — and that’s just in the first four trading days of the year.

Yang, the controlling shareholder of Country Garden, saw her fortune soar to $25.6 billion as of Jan. 5 to rank as the fifth-richest person in the nation, according to the Bloomberg Billionaires Index. That’s before Country Garden’s shares rose another 7.4 percent on Monday in Hong Kong trading, taking its year-to-date-gain to 17 percent.

The 36-year-old Yang is China’s richest woman and the nation’s youngest billionaire, according to the Bloomberg index. In 2005, her father transferred his controlling stake to her “due to his intention to train Yang Huiyan as the successor of his family’s interest” in the group, Country Garden said in its 2007 initial public offering prospectus.

Her father Yang Guoqiang, usually known by his Cantonese name Yeung Kwok Keung, co-founded Country Garden in 1992.

Country Garden has been one of the beneficiaries of a boom in China’s property market, which has led to buoyant earnings and soaring sales, especially for the nation’s largest developers. The company reported preliminary 2017 contracted sales of 550.8 billion yuan ($85 billion) on Friday, exceeding the 500 billion yuan target is provided in August.

The latest rumors from Man Utd, Chelsea, Arsenal and all the top teams biggest transfer stories from ..

We takes a look at the biggest transfer stories from the Premier League, La Liga, Serie A and beyond on the last day of the UK transfer window

Barca move for Ozil

Barcelona has turned their attention to Arsenal midfielder Mesut Ozil having been rebuffed in their bid to sign Philippe Coutinho, according to COPE.

Liverpool has maintained throughout the transfer window that the Brazilian is not for sale despite multiple offers from Camp Nou.

And now Barca, with an extra day in which to sign players due to the late deadline in Spain, reportedly plans to launch a late move for Ozil, who Arsenal value at €60 million (£55m).

LEMAR & ALEXIS DEALS OFF

Arsenal has failed to agree on a deal to sign Thomas Lemar from Monaco and will therefore not sell Alexis Sanchez to Manchester City, according to the BBC .

The Gunners are said to have submitted a £92 million bid for the Frenchman, while the proposed deal taking Alexis to City was worth £60m.

But Arsenal have been unable to secure a replacement for their star man and so will insist he sees out the final year of his contract before leaving for free next summer

BARCA MAKE LAST COUTINHO BID

Barcelona have made a last-ditch attempt to sign Philippe Coutinho from Liverpool, according to Sport .

The Reds have so far resisted the Catalans’ attempts to prise away their star man, continually insisting that he will not be sold at any price.

But the Blaugrana have made a new bid that falls just short of €150 million when bonuses are included in the hope they can get a deal done before the Spanish transfer deadline on Friday.

SPURS MISS OUT ON GOMES

Tottenham’s move to sign Barcelona midfielder Andre Gomes has collapsed late on deadline day, according to football.london .

Spurs looked to have beaten West Ham to a loan deal for the midfielder, who has fallen out of favor after a difficult first season at Camp Nou.

But it is now being reported that Barca has pulled the plug on the transfer due to their failure to secure their own targets as the deadline approaches.

CHASE STILL ON FOR MAHREZ

Arsenal, Chelsea, Tottenham, and Barcelona remain contenders to sign Leicester City winger Riyad Mahrez, according to RMC Sport.

Reports had previously claimed that Barca is not interested in the Algerian and that no bids had been made for him late on deadline day.

But it has now been suggested that the Blaugrana could move for him should they admit defeat in their pursuit of Liverpool midfielder Philippe Coutinho and that the three Premier League clubs are still monitoring the situation.

BARKLEY TURNS DOWN CHELSEA

Everton midfielder Ross Barkley has turned down the chance to join Chelsea, according to the BBC .

The England international is also said to have attracted the interest of Tottenham after being made available for transfer having turned down a new deal at Goodison Park.

But Barkley has dealt another blow to the Blues, who also appear to have missed out on Fernando Llorente, by rejecting a switch to west London.

BARCA MADE LATE MBAPPE PUSH

Barcelona made a late attempt to hijack Paris Saint-Germain’s move to sign Monaco starlet Kylian Mbappe, according to Yahoo Sport.

PSG’s deal for the France prodigy was delayed by their attempts to structure it in such a way that ensures they do not break UEFA’s Financial Fair Play regulations.

Barca subsequently entered the race looking to deal a blow to the club that signed Neymar from them, but the Parisians formally concluded the signing on Thursday.

MANGALA THWARTS EVANS DEAL

Eliaquim Mangala is refusing to sign for Crystal Palace and thwarting Manchester City’s desire to sign Jonny Evans from West Brom, according to the Daily Mirror.

Palace reportedly had a bid accepted for the Frenchman only for him to turn down the chance to move to Selhurst Park.

The Eagles have subsequently turned their attention back to Liverpool’s Mamadou Sakho and without offloading Mangala, City will not be able to bring in Evans.

PEREZ & CAMPBELL SET FOR EXITS

Lucas Perez and Joel Campbell are set to leave Arsenal for clubs in La Liga, according to the daily Mirror.

Perez will return to Deportivo La Coruna while Campbell is in line to join Real Betis, it is claimed – and the closing of the window a day later in Spain gives the two clubs extra time to negotiate.

MAN UTD IN LATE WILLIAN MOVE

Manchester United are preparing another raid on Chelsea as they look to lure Willian to Old Trafford, according to the Sun.

The newspaper reports that Jose Mourinho is keen to bring the Brazil international to Man United, where he would follow in the footsteps of another former Blues star Nemanja Matic.

However, the Red Devils would be forced to spend in the region of £35 million for the 29-year-old’s services.

  • WEST BROM EYE £23M SPURS FLOP JANSSEN

West Bromwich Albion is prepared to part with £23 million in order to bring Vincent Janssen to the club from Tottenham, according to the Sun.

The Netherlands international, who joined Spurs from AZ for £17m last summer, has been living in the considerable shadow of Harry Kane in north London and has struggled to score goals.

However, the report suggests that West Brom could face competition from Stoke City for his signature.

CHELSEA LAUNCH €25M BID FOR ZAPPACOSTA

Chelsea have launched a €25 million bid for Torino defender Davide Zappacosta, according toLa Gazzetta dello Sport .

The Italy international is a full-back and has been on Antonio Conte’s radar for some time. Having missed out on Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, the Blues are determined to add reinforcements before the close of the summer window.

ARSENAL REJECT FOXES’ CHAMBERS BIDS

Arsenal has rejected not one, but two bids from Leicester City for Calum Chambers, according to a report by the BBC.

The report indicates that the Foxes made two bids in the region of £20 million for Chambers, but both were dismissed by the Gunners, who had previously set an asking price of £27m for the 22-year-old.

BAYERN REJECT CHELSEA’S RAFINHA BID

Chelsea has had an offer for Bayern Munich defender Rafinha rejected, according to Sky Sports.

The Blues lost out in the race for Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, who joined Liverpool, and Antonio Conte is desperate to add a right-sided player to provide competition for Victor Moses.

Rafinha, who turns 32 in September, is one of a number of targets being considered by Chelsea, with Bacary Sagna also said to be an option.

ARSENAL LOOK TO DRAXLER

Arsenal is interested in signing Julian Draxler from Paris Saint-Germain before Thursday’s transfer deadline, according to Sports Bild.

The Gunners now look set to lose Alexis Sanchez to Manchester City and have eyed Germany international Draxler as his replacement.

PSG are open to selling Draxler, having spent €222 million to land Neymar from Barcelona earlier in the month.

PSG TURN ATTENTION TO €40M SERI

Paris Saint-Germain has turned their attention towards Jean Seri, who could cost the Ligue 1 giants €40 million, according to L’Equipe.

The paper reports that Nice midfielder Seri, who had also been on the radar of Barcelona, is considered an alternative for PSG after the capital club were frustrated in their efforts to sign Monaco star Fabinho and Porto’s Danilo Pereira.

JUVE TO SEND CHELSEA TARGET ON LOAN

Juventus are ready to send highly rated Italy youth international Moise Kean on loan to Hellas Verona, according to Gianluca Di Marzio.

Kean, 17, has been on the radar of a number of Premier League clubs, including Chelsea and Arsenal, but looks set to remain in Serie A for the time being.

PALACE MAKE €20M MANGALA BID

Crystal Palace has made a bid of over €20 million for Manchester City defender Eliaquim Mangala, according to a report in L’Equipe .

Mangala has not been a first-choice under Pep Guardiola and spent last season on loan at Valencia. Palace is keen to strengthen their backline, but they face competition from clubs in Italy for the France international.

JUVE REJECT €160M DYBALA BID

Juventus have rejected a €160 million offer from Barcelona for Paulo Dybala, Corriere Dello Sport claims.

The Catalan club has been rebuffed in their attempts to sign Philippe Coutinho from Liverpool and have turned to the Juve star in the wake of Neymar’s €222m move to Paris Saint-Germain. However, the Serie A side are unwilling to sell the Argentina international and knocked back Barca’s approach on Wednesday

IT Industry remained best in 2016/17 than ever before

Pakistan’s IT exports rose all-time high in the outgoing financial year of 2016-2017.

The country is witnessing a growth boom in the IT industry like never before and the government is also taking steps to support the IT infrastructure. And the numbers prove that the positive activity in the IT industry is delivering good results. According to ProPakistani, figures provided by the State Bank of Pakistan(SBP) indicate that the IT industry’s exports – which includes telecom, and computer and information services – in the outgoing financial year were of $938.640 million. The exports made in the previous financial year of 2015-2016 were worth $788.640 million. This indicates a year-on-year growth of 19%.

The Pakistan Software Exchange Board(PSEB), on the other hand, has reported figures that are three times greater than those reported by the SBP. According to the PSEB, the IT exports stand at a whopping $2.8 billion. There is a huge disparity in the numbers that have been reported by the SBP and the PSEB. However, it should be noted here that the SBP and the PSEB calculate the final figure of IT exports in a different manner. The PSEB reports in different sectors such as financial services, healthcare sector, e-commerce, e-health, but to estimate the final figure of total exports it takes into consideration all the exports done by local software houses to international clients.

If Pakistan’s IT industry keeps thriving at this rate, it certainly rings good news for the country’s economy. Could Pakistan hit the target of $6 billion software exports by 2020 or the target of $10 billion IT exports by 2025? We’ll have to wait and see. But the present certainly does look good.

Record profit earned in 2017 as compared to past decade : Samsung

Samsung has just released the figures for their second-quarter earnings and it appears the smartphone manufacturing giant has set the bar even higher. The company states that their profits have surged by 72% as compared to a year before. This beats all estimates market analysts had set previously. Maryam Do mention here what they estimated.

In the second quarter of 2017 Samsung has made a 14 trillion won* ($12.1 billion) profit on a roughly 60 trillion won ($52 billion) revenue. This is a significant increase from their earnings about a year ago and these figures also beat the record previously set by Samsung’s 10.16 trillion won profit in the third quarter of 2013.

Samsung hasn’t released any more details on this quarter’s earnings but it is expected that a complete report will be made public later this month. However, the 72% surge in their year on year profit for the second quarter adds to their mostly positive results from the preceding quarter.

The smartphone manufacturer has been enjoying a favorable time in the international market with the Samsung Galaxy S8 breaking all records of pre-orders and its display was named “best performing” and achieved the highest-ever A+ grade. The company is also trying to recover from the explosion fiasco of Samsung Galaxy Note 7 by announcing that they will be releasing refurbished models into the market soon.

The South Korean giant also appears to be expanding its range by delving into the memory chip domain. The company recently announced that they will be investing $18 billion to enhance the production of semiconductor chips from its factories in South Korea. As of Thursday, Samsung’s shares are trading at a record high of 2.4 million won and it is expected the company will close 2017 with record earnings mostly owing to an increase in the demand for chips to power complex smart devices.

Why Trump is leaving 195 countries accord of Climate change Paris agreement?

Climate change is already impacting the planet, but the specific goal of the Paris Agreement is to prevent the planet from warming by more than 2 degrees Celsius (3.6 degrees Fahrenheit), which scientists warn could have especially damaging consequences

The Paris Agreement is a deal reached between 195 countries to gradually reduce emissions that cause climate change in order to prevent a major increase in the global temperatures that could raise sea levels, spark major droughts, and lead to more dangerous storms.

The agreement, which was negotiated in 2015 and took effect in November 2016, was spurred by the overwhelming global scientific consensus that rising global temperatures over the last several decades are caused by man-made activity.

3 reasons why Trump is not interested

Number 1: He has repeatedly tweeted and said in campaign speeches that climate change is a “hoax” and even suggested that China — another frequent Trump target — was behind the plot. China won’t end using fossil fuels

Number 2: Trump has rattled allies by criticizing trade agreements and military alliances.

Number 3: Trump is not a fan of the regulations and spending that the previous administration proposed to meet its goals, which he warns will reduce economic growth.

What happens if the US withdraws

The agreement won’t fall apart overnight. Already, reports suggest China and the European Union are prepared to publicly recommit to the agreement with or without the United States. Some experts say China appears to be reducing emissions ahead of schedule, in part because the country is phasing out coal quicker to reduce choking smog in its major cities.

Trump also can’t technically withdraw from the agreement until November 2019. It’s possible he could speed things up by abandoning the underlying Senate-approved climate treaty that the agreement is linked to.
