There should be a law forbidding such greed.
CEOs of charities may not earn more than twice the average salary, including bonuses.
Breaking this law will result in hefty fines (everything they "stole" + some extra) and jail time.
Unfortunately, it doesn't work like that
There is a "guideline", but that line is ridiculous.
In fact, all three CEOs of Natuurmonumenten are "well within the accepted guidelines."
I guess other millionaires make those guidelines.
Which begs the question - who gets fined and jailed? Not arguing, I completely agree with you. But if you passed a law like this, then pretty soon here in the States we might want to find out how lowly congressman making 200K a year end up with over 10 million net worth after 5 terms... hmmmm
This has to fall under the good-old-boy network - I'm not sexist, the women at the top are in it too. The leader of the Red Cross pulls in a cool 500K "which is considered mid-range for a non-profit of that size." Plus all the other perks. The United Way reports 1.3 MILLION for their CEO.
These non-profit CEO's are not stealing this money, it's being offered to them. Then they go sit on another board and do the same for the next CEO. It would be an interesting MBA thesis (I'm sure it's been done) to cross reference all of the top management of companies with where they sit on the boards....
People need to understand where their money is going and choose wisely.

That could be an element of it (it isn't, in this particular case, though).
Clues do normally contain a literal definition at one end or the other and the rest is word-play that could lead you to the same answer.
So if we had a clue like:
Wild cat passage of play (3)
A passage of play could be an ACT, wild cat would give us anagram of CAT - which again would lead to ACT.
Follow round terrier (3)
Would give us DOG as a terrier is a DOG and follow round also means to DOG.
So the answer is effectively double-clued and you're looking for something that's in there twice. So your approach is actually right (find a 7 letter word - preferably not "scrotum" - that either means a convict or a small place and see if you can the rest of the clue to fit it).
Whenever you find yourself on the side of the majority, it is time to pause and reflect. - Mark Twain
I just don't usually see the clues.
Sometimes because my English just isn't good enough (like I didn't know that "to dog" means "follow round").
So anyway, I take it CONVICT wasn't correct (luckily, I wouldn't want to be up tomorrow)
Although (taking another shot at it)... A nasty little place could be a duct, leading to CONDUCT?
I need to program a remote switch via Bluetooth to a smart 'phone. Both ends are the easy bit. It's the hardware in the middle that's worrying me.
I need a really small, I mean a really, really small - smaller than a very small thing - bluetooth board, that can just talk to an android device and send h/w switch presses to it, nothing more. The user presses a h/w switch, and the 'phone logs it.
If I forgot everything I know about such boards, I would quite possible know more about them than I do now.
There seems to be an HC-05 or 06 out there, but I have no idea if they would do the job. They are actually larger than I would like, anyway. Also, I guess I would need a BLE device.
Does the hive-mind of CP have any idea of what's worth looking at?
