In nursing-home dance parties, seniors twist and shout, gingerly, to songs of their youth. A man who would otherwise be locked in a dementia unit walks daily in the forest surrounding his retirement community. And in the kitchen of her tiny nursing-home unit, a woman helps staff cook meals, finding comfort in the familiar. It may sound strange to say in the midst of a pandemic that’s come straight for seniors, but there is a lot of hope for the future of long-term care. In “Happily Ever Older: Revolutionary Approaches to Long-term Care,” Toronto Star investigative reporter Moira Welsh takes readers across North America and into Europe, telling stories of homes, communities and respite day programs that are continuously innovating, enabling people to live with freedom, purpose and vitality in their later years.

SINGAPORE - Singapore's statutory boards, companies and Institutions of a Public Character (IPCs) made some progress in appointing more women to their boards last year, according to the Council for Board Diversity (CBD). In an update issued on Sunday (April 11) on women's participation on boards, the CBD said statutory boards showed the most improvement, followed by companies and then IPCs. But the increases still fell short of the council's short-term targets set in 2019, when it was established by the Ministry of Social and Family Development to promote a sustained increase of women on boards in Singapore. In 2019, the council's goal for statutory boards and IPCs was set at 30 per cent "as soon as possible". For companies, the goal was set at 20 per cent by the end of last year, 25 per cent by 2025 and 30 per cent by 2030. Statutory boards showed the most improvement, with an increase of 2.4 percentage points as at December last year, compared with end-2019. The rate of … [Read more...] about More women in S’pore named to boards in public, private and people sectors
Cyber security company Darktrace will on Monday fire the starting gun on a £3bn London flotation - crystallising a stake worth tens of millions of pounds for its 38-year-old chief executive. Sky News has learnt that Darktrace's board plans to issue an expected "intention to float" announcement before the stock market opens on Monday morning. The listing will provide another acid test of investors' appetite to embrace technology company flotations in London, following the disastrous debut of Deliveroo, the food delivery app, earlier this month. Darktrace's float is likely to value the company at between £2.5bn and £3bn, with chief executive Poppy Gustafsson's shareholding likely to be valued in the region of £20m. The filing of its registration documents will mean that Darktrace's shares will begin conditional trading at around the end of this month.
