BRIDGETOWN,Barbados (CMC):Marquee West Indies Women’s batsman Deandra Dottin has complained about the disparity in pay between men’s and women’s players and says she may be forced to take up alternative employment if the situation is not addressed.Citing the example of the respective payouts for the winners at the recent Twenty20 World Cup in India, the 24-year-old Dottin labelled the disparity as “ridiculous” and said it was “discouraging”.West Indies men’s side pocketed US$1.6 million for beating England in the final of the tournament, while their women counterparts won a mere US$100,000.”Barbados does not really give sports people – and from my point of view, women – the recognition and respect they need,” Dottin told Barbados Today online.”We were actually World champions and a lot of people feel we are getting all of this big money and the payment is equal to the men. That is not so.”She added: “In order for cricket to be better, you need to treat everybody as one. You can’t treat the men at a high level and the women at a much lower level. You (women) only have the fame and the name.more money”We women need to be treated way better than we are being treated – money-wise and respect. Regional male cricketers make more money than West Indies women in cricket.”Dottin is one of the most senior players on the women’s side, having played 90 one-day internationals and 88 Twenty20 Internationals.She became the first woman to score a T20 hundred as she scorched 112 off South Africa Women when the Caribbean hosted the T20 World Cup six years ago.Dottin is one of 11 West Indies women’s players with West Indies Cricket Board retainer contracts, which range from US$1,500 to $3,000 per month.In contrast, the men’s contracts are worth anywhere from US$100,000 up to nearly $150,000.The Barbadian Dottin said with the current of affairs, she may have to resort to playing cricket part-time.”This sort of treatment would discourage anybody from playing cricket. Right now, as a person who plays cricket full-time and loves cricket, I am looking for something else to do,” she said.”And if what I choose to do brings me more income and makes life better for me, I will play cricket part-time. They will not get my full dedication anymore.”

Without targets, you have nothing to aim for.There is a reason you need to carefully and methodically select your dream clients: You need targets.Targets limit your focus. Not every prospect is right for your company, and your company isn’t right for every prospect. Some of what might look like prospective clients in your territory won’t perceive value in your solution. By selecting targets, you thoughtfully limit your focus to the prospective clients for whom you can create value, and who will perceive the value you create as something worth paying for.Targets provide a foundation for consistent action. Some salespeople complain that they don’t have enough leads. They gripe about not having a large enough list of prospective clients. Sometimes this is true, but more often than not the same salespeople do not have a list of targets (dream clients). If they had a list of dream clients, they would know who they needed to call on, even if these prospective clients are difficult to win. A list of targets allows for consistent action over time.Targets ensure you direct your activity towards something strategic. When a company or sales force doesn’t have target prospects, they call on anyone and everyone. They end up winning clients that are too small and divert their limited time and resources to outcomes that don’t make a difference. And they end up spending most of their time with receptive prospects instead of high-value, high visibility prospects. Having targets ensures you spend your time with prospects that help your business obtain its strategic objectives.If you don’t have a list of dream client prospects, make that list now. The more time you wait to focus on your dream client accounts, the longer it will take for you to create and win clients that matter–and for whom your work matters. The more you flail around with inconsistent and ineffective activity, the longer it will take you to develop the relationships you need to win your dream client accounts. The time you spend on smaller, irrelevant prospects is the time that you should spend on the most strategic accounts in your territory.Choose your targets. Narrow your focus. Win big. And make a difference. Essential Reading!

Cairo — Egypt’s deposed president Mohamed Morsi appeared in court Monday on the first day of his trial for incitement to murder, rejecting its legitimacy and demanding “coup” leaders be prosecuted.In his first public appearance since the military toppled him in July, Morsi was indignant and outraged as he attended a make-shift courtroom at a police academy in east Cairo. The trial was adjourned to January 8.“I am Dr. Mohamed Morsi, the president of the republic,” a defiant Morsi told the court. Monday’s hearing lasted nearly three hours and the judge heard requests from the defendants’ lawyers, who demanded to see all the case files and be allowed to meet their clients privately.Morsi, who had been kept in secret detention since July, was then flown to Borg al-Arab prison outside Egypt’s second city of Alexandria.Morsi and 14 co-defendants are accused of inciting violence and the murder of protesters outside the presidential palace in December, charges that could lead to the death penalty or life in prison.The Islamist leader branded as criminal his overthrow by the army on July 3 after mass protests against his single year of turbulent rule.“This was a military coup. The leaders of the coup should be tried. A coup is treason and a crime.”“I cannot accept for the judiciary to become a cover for the military coup,” he yelled. “I am here involuntarily, and through force.”Morsi, wearing a dark blue suit, was brought to court by helicopter that touched down nearby and then driven to the heavily fortified police academy.State television aired footage showing Morsi smiling as he stepped out of a white van, buttoning his blue blazer and entering the dock to applause from fellow defendants dressed in white prison uniforms.Muslim Brotherhood co-defendants Essam al-Erian and Mohammed al-Beltagui chanted “Down with military rule” at the hearing, as Morsi, his greying beard closely trimmed, smiled and waved at his supporters packing the benches of the courtroom.Judge Ahmed Sabry Youssef banned cameras and recording equipment from the courtroom.Morsi’s supporters, battered by a bloody and sweeping police crackdown, accuse the army-installed government of fabricating the charges against him.They held anti-military rallies across Cairo, including outside the police academy where dozens brandished posters of Morsi and signs bearing anti-military messages.Thousands also protested in front of the constitutional court.“Morsi’s trial is a farce. The criminals are trying the legitimate president,” supporter Ibrahim Abdel Samd said.Security forces completely closed Nahda Square — site of a bloody crackdown on Morsi supporters in August — and Cairo University, while military vehicles guarded police stations.The authorities deployed 20,000 policemen for the trial, and warned they were ready to deal with any violence.‘Defiance noteworthy’‘Free and fair trial’Morsi’s trial is seen as a test for Egypt’s new authorities, who have come under fire for their heavy-handedness.With more than 1,000 people killed since Morsi’s overthrow and thousands of Islamists arrested, hopes for a political settlement are slim in Egypt.“Morsi’s insistence that he is still the legitimate president shows that he and most of the Muslim Brotherhood is not ready to give up their legitimacy claim,” said Shadi Hamid of the Brookings Doha Center think-tank.“Their stand is detached from the reality, but their defiance is noteworthy and could keep supporters energized.”Amnesty International said Morsi should be granted a fair trial, including the right to challenge evidence against him.“Failing to do so would further call into question the motives behind his trial,” said the watchdog’s Hassiba Hadj Sahraoui.But Hamid believes the “political” nature of the trial will drive its outcome.“There is zero chance of it being free and fair,” he said.On the eve of the hearing, foreign ministry spokesman Badr Abdelatty said Morsi “will have rights to a free and fair trial”.Morsi was catapulted from the underground offices of the long-banned Muslim Brotherhood to become Egypt’s first democratically elected president in June 2012.His victory was made possible by the 2011 uprising that toppled longtime autocratic president Hosni Mubarak.But Morsi’s stint at the helm was marred by political turmoil, deadly clashes and a crippling economic crisis.In November 2012, Morsi decreed himself sweeping powers, prompting opponents to accuse him of failing the ideals of the revolution.It was a turning-point that launched the worst polarisation in Egypt’s recent history.A month later, deadly clashes erupted outside the presidential palace between his supporters and opponents in which at least seven people were killed.
