first_imgPioneering politician Shirley Chisholm Barack Obama broke the glass ceiling for African Americans in 2008 when he won the presidential elections. Now, African Americans are not hesitant to seek the nomination to represent  the Democratic and Republican Parties as presidential candidates.  For the 2020 presidential election, African American Senators Kamala Harris, who is of Caribbean Heritage, and Corey Booker, have already announced their candidacy.However, long before Obama made his historical bid for the presidency, as early as 1848, several African Americans sought the  presidency. Most of these candidates were from small, lesser known political parties, but each carved a space in America’s black history.During Black History Month, the Caribbean National Weekly will publish a four-part series featuring African American  candidates who sought the highest office in the land. Today we feature candidates who ran between 1848 and 1980. In our February 14th issue we will feature African American candidates who ran between 1981 and 2000. On February 21st, we will highlight candidates who ran between 2001 and 2008, and on February 28th, candidates who ran from 2009 to 2019.African American Candidates: 1848-1980Frederick Douglass  – Douglass was born in 1818 and passed away in 1895. A former slave and great social reformer, Douglass was a presidential candidate twice, in 1848 and again in 1888. Douglass was a highly regarded abolitionist, orator, writer, and statesman. After escaping slavery in Maryland, he became a national leader of the abolitionist movement in Massachusetts and New York, gaining note for his oratory and incisive antislavery writings. In his time, he was described by abolitionists as a living counter-example to slaveholders’ arguments that slaves lacked the intellectual capacity to function as independent American citizens. He made his first presidential bid in 1848 as a candidate for the Liberty party, gaining just one vote at the party’s national convention. He made another bid in 1872 for vice president representing the Equal Rights Party, and in 1888 as a presidential candidate for the Republican Party.George Edwin Taylor – Born in 1857, Taylor was the son of slaves born in Little Rock, Arkansas and passed away in 1925. In 1904, he was the presidential candidate of the National Negro Liberty Party.In the 1890s, Taylor, publisher of a weekly newspaper called Negro Solicitor, transitioned from Independent Republican to Democrat. In 1892, he was founder and president of the National Colored Men’s Protection League and in 1900 was president of the National Negro Democratic League, which was the Negro Bureau within the National Democratic Party. In 1904, Taylor joined the National Negro Liberty Party as its candidate for president of the United States. He reconnected with the Democratic Party after the failure of his 1904 election campaign. Clennon Washington King, Jr. –  King, who was born in 1920 and died in 2000, was a civil rights activist, and is often referred to as the first African American to run for president.

Back to where it all started

first_imgPhilippine senator and boxing hero Manny Pacquiao, left, and Argentine WBA welterweight champion Lucas Matthysse (AP Photo/Aaron Favila)No Freddie Roach. No Bob Arum. No pay-per-view dollars. No glitzy Las Vegas neon lights. No hyped up opponent. All there is is a legend, closer to the end of his career than to the start.Manny Pacquiao prepares for a fight that will dictate how the sun will continue to rise for the remainder of his career.ADVERTISEMENT Arum, now 84 and the top honcho of Top Rank, will be conspicuously absent as Pacquiao decided to go at it alone, his MP Promotions making its first major international foray.MP will instead be promoting the fight with Golden Boy Promotions, which handles Matthysse. Top Rank has reportedly been reduced to distributing the fight in the United States.Also, Pacquiao’s best friend and coach Buboy Fernandez will now be calling the shots from his corner in place of Roach, who has been head trainer since 2001. This marks the end of the duo that shook the boxing world—pound for pound, one division at a time—since pairing up to stun Lehlo Ledwaba and barge into mainstream boxing consciousness.Pacquiao will also be bringing a fight to Malaysia for the first time, and the majestic Petronas towers could be the backdrop to what could very well be Pacquiao’s final act of his career.Against an Argentine brawler who is a high-risk, high-reward proposition for the Filipino icon, Pacquiao will have to draw from what worked for him before: Talent, skill, hard work and the burning desire to prove his doubters wrong.ADVERTISEMENT “This fight will determine my future,” the Philippine senator has told media people during his preparation for the bout against Argentine Lucas Matthysse on July 15 in Kuala Lumpur.But while the result will largely factor into Pacquiao’s future schedule, the atmosphere surrounding his preparation smacks of nostalgia. A bulk of his preparation was spent in General Santos City, halfway around the world from the Wild Card Gym where he and renowned trainer used to plot the downfall of foes.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSGinebra beats Meralco again to capture PBA Governors’ Cup titleSPORTSAfter winning title, time for LA Tenorio to give back to Batangas folkSPORTSTim Cone still willing to coach Gilas but admits decision won’t be ‘simple yes or no’It has all the throwback feels, as if Pacquiao has returned to where he started.His showdown against the 35-year-old Matthysse marks the first time in many years that neither Arum nor Roach are key figures of his camp.

Lights inside SMX hall flicker as Duterte rants vs Ayala, Pangilinan anew In fight vs corruption, Duterte now points to Ayala, MVP companies as ‘big fish’ ‘Practice game’ Remember how he was “not popular enough” to mix it up with Oscar De La Hoya? He crushed the Golden Boy in 2008. Or how he supposedly  wouldn’t be able to bring his punching power up to the lightweight ranks? He sent Ricky Hatton to dreamland in 2009. Or even how he was “too small” to engage Antonio Margarito in a slugfest? He rearranged the Mexican’s facial features in 2010.Pacquiao’s career reached its peak with a fight against Floyd Mayweather Jr., but since then, he has struggled to find a big-name fighter for that one last big fight card.So he chose a dangerous one, instead—a slugger in Matthysse, who is also out to earn a piece of the spotlight Pacquiao has basked in for so long.At 39, Pacquiao hopes to reboot his career. One last shot at glory. One more chance at a marquee fight. One more opportunity to empty the streets.

first_imgMultinational law firm Ashurst is revamping its bonus structure to enable all staff to be eligible for bonus payments.The firm’s existing bonus structure only awards its lawyers and non-legal business services staff who are at manager level or above, however the new changes will allow all global employees, including secretaries and non-managerial staff, to be eligible to receive bonuses.In addition, Ashurst will amend the criteria that decides lawyers’ bonus pay. Here, the focus will move from using billable hours as a metric to instead concentrate on performance.Although the changes have been approved at a high-level basis, the exact details of how the bonus scheme eligibility will work moving forwards have yet to be set. Once decided, this will need to be approved by the firm’s executive team.The bonus scheme eligibility changes follow on from Ashurst publishing its gender pay gap data this month in line with the government’s gender pay gap reporting regulations and ahead of the private sector submission deadline of 4 April 2018.The law firm reported a mean gender pay gap of 24.8% for fixed hourly pay, and a median gender pay gap of 32.7%. Its mean gender pay gap for bonuses paid during the reporting period is 64.4%, and the median gender pay gap for bonus pay is 60.2%. In this time frame, 34.1% of female employees were awarded a bonus compared to 44.3% of male employees.Less than half (44%) of employees in the highest pay quartile at Ashurst are female, compared to 62% in the second quartile, 61% in the third quartile and 81% in the lowest pay quartile.Claire Townshend, head of HR, Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA) and US, said: “Driving and recognising high performance is critical to our business. We have responded to staff feedback and taken on board comments in reviewing our bonus structure. In consequence, eligibility for an annual bonus will be extended to all staff globally and for fee-earners, there will be a real focus on the wider role of the lawyer, not just chargeable hours. This will improve both performance and overall engagement in the business.”last_img read more
