Analysts expect the VoiceStream acquisition to be just the first of several U. The company has held recent merger talks with Qwest officials but is said to have backed off a potential deal with Sprint because of concerns about regulatory resistance. VoiceStream already owns wireless licenses covering about three-quarters of the U.
However, much of that network is not yet built, and it will take years and millions of dollars to complete. The company has about 2 million mobile customers, placing it well behind U. VoiceStream, however, is growing fast. It was spun off from Western Wireless Corp. It completed two acquisitions of its own earlier this year: Aerial Communications Inc. In addition, it has struck partnership deals with several other companies that will allow it to sell VoiceStream service in their markets.
Still, VoiceStream could move to buy those licenses outright as well as buy new licenses that would allow it to fill service gaps in San Diego and other California regions as well as in Nevada and the southeastern U. Despite the heavy losses, the company is attractive to Deutsche Telekom because it is one of the last independent nationwide wireless carriers in the United States.
Still, last week shares of Deutsche Telekom fell on fears that it would overpay for VoiceStream, traders said. About Us.

Who wants to watch McEnroe flashing his backhand when we can watch Vanessa Williams flashing her underwear? Women are pretty to look at Individually, any woman can replace any man. A team of ten men and one woman is as cohesive and gung-ho as a team of eleven men. But a team of six men and six women is contrived neutered non-productive That's way too high.
The important thing is to ensure men and women pull equally together and not against each other That's where we went wrong I suspect that this problem will eventually get resolved in a similar fashion to the problem of gays in the military. There is an older generation, currently still in charge in a lot of places, which grew up with one set of attitudes about what women should be doing see FirstAdvisor's comment above for an example.
But they are increasingly being replaced by a younger generation which was raised with a very different view. That new generation will be progressively less tied to an "old boys' network" and more to a broader network. As the article suggests, that has already started to happen. Today, the number, while small, is much bigger.
And growing. The bad news is, the folks pushing for quotas will probably take the natural increase to be a result of their efforts.
Which will be unfortunate the next time they decide that a quota on something whether hiring, imports, or whatever is the solution to all the world's problems. You can call it the boys' club, but I think those-who've-been-together-for-a-long-time-and-want-no-strangers club is more appropriate. So the solution must start like a seed, and the time is ripe: many of today's giants grew from small start-ups, and they grew fast.
That's good, isn't it?

At least it's based on something that actually matter and moral. So now, women need those abilities.
How do we give them abilities, or rather, how will they acquire them? School, naturally. If you've gone to school, when you see your high school female friends in college, how many how them first chose some really mickeys major? My Opinion tm is not proper statistics, I know, but I 've seen far too many. This is a solution in search of a problem. In 20 years with broad exposure to senior management and Boards in all kinds of companies, I've never come across a situation were a woman was discriminated for being a woman.
The stakes are just too high these days to dismiss talent this easily with a few exceptions in state-controlled and family businesses. The quaint notion that someone in power could appoint his mediocre, male buddies to senior positions in management or the Board might have existed, oh, in the s and s, but is a fiction today. In fact, the opposite is true. There is a constant pressure to promote women to senior positions to the point where each success is celebrated. The fact remains that the supply of talented women with the right credentials and experience is very limited.
Speaking strictly from personal experience, I'd say that the main driver for that is motherhood. Although some choose not to reproduce and many brave their way managing career and family at cruising speed, a sizable majority slows down their careers or drop them altogether at the advent of the first child - before they reach the point where they would be considered for very senior positions.

Unfortunate, but understandable. Incidentally, that - moving from the fast lane into a quieter neighborhood in the corporate ecology - does happen to many men as well just a lower proportion of the total. I gotta concede, quota systems are certainly the WRONG wasy to go about it, for all the obvious reasons. Absolutely abnoxious. The thought of countries passing laws requiring a percentage of the board be women is going to take us where? You can't legislate the human race.
This type of action creates barriers between a man and a woman, and there are certainly enough of those already. We need to bring us together, not tear us apart. I find this really repulsive. If I was a woman I would me very critical of laws such as these, as it merely says a woman needs help, and can not go it alone. Is this another example of liberals looking for hand outs? Oh My, I have a college degree in physics but can't find a job, and am having to work in the kitchen washing dishes. Guys, go to USA, China now There are no two ways about it And the notion that women do better then men in business is ridiculous at best.
Man and woman are not of different species, we are all humans. Advancement anywhere should only be based on merit, irrespective of gender, caste, color or sexual orientation. Currently, I work in an organization where there is an atypically high proportion of women to men and from my perspective, everyone works together in harmony in a productive manner. No one was appointed on the basis of quotas. In contrast, I have worked in other institutions where women were selected on the basis of quotas and invariably the appointees never comes up to the standards expected of them, they are nasty and aggressive towards their other female colleagues, discriminatory towards male colleagues, and cover up for their lack of performance by spreading gossip and lies about their coworkers.
Raising kids will always be done mostly by women. This interrupts women's careers. But think: if retirement ages are shifted towards 70 and women's lower retirement age entitlements are diminished so then women are going to have an increasingly long stretch of uninterrupted career ahead of them once they are post childcare.
The readjustment of expectations and stereotypes that will come with later real retirement ages, together with the shift away from experience and networking in favour of knowledge and interpersonal skills, will be favourable to women's post-child career prospects. The idea of imposing quotas, while illiberal, might be acceptable if backed up by success stories of such policies in action. But where are they?
