first_imgfreedom nounfree·​dom | \ ˈfrē-dəmThe definition of freedom, according to Merriam-Webster is defined;“the quality or state of being free”We owe our freedom to the many fighters who fought against apartheid and oppression in South Africa. The many who died at the hands of an inhuman state. The many voters who waited in bated breath to cast their vote X for South Africa’s first democratic elections in 1994.Today the country enjoys its globally admired Constitution and Bill of Rights, affirmed by its expressive preamble;We, the people of South Africa, Recognise the injustices of our past; Honour those who suffered for justice and freedom in our land; Respect those who have worked to build and develop our country; and Believe that South Africa belongs to all who live in it, united in our diversity. We therefore, through our freely elected representatives, adopt this Constitution as the supreme law of the Republic so as to– Heal the divisions of the past and establish a society based on democratic values, social justice and fundamental human rights;Lay the foundations for a democratic and open society in which government is based on the will of the people and every citizen is equally protected by law;Improve the quality of life of all citizens and free the potential of each person; andBuild a united and democratic South Africa able to take its rightful place as a sovereign state in the family of nations.May God protect our people.

first_img8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Market While maybe not as exciting as a program that aims to put music everywhere, Sonos is a household name whose products are sold in 65 countries (6,200 retailers) worldwide – that’s a big market for Rdio to tap into.We expect both MOG and Rdio, two of the best choices for U.S. users who don’t have access to the uber-popular, European-based Spotify, to become increasingly competitive in 2011, especially as the Android market grows, where iTunes is not a factor. sarah perez Two notable paid subscription streaming music services have announced partnerships and programs aimed at expanding their offerings beyond the desktop and mobile platforms where they currently reside. MOG, an on-demand service providing around 10 million songs for $10/month, has launched its MOG Fusion program, a manufacturer-focused toolkit for integrating MOG into consumer electronics and automobiles.Rdio, a similarly priced service, but one that’s more social-networking focused, has partnered with Sonos, makers of music systems for the home, to bring Rdio to the living room and elsewhere around the house.Subscription is the New Black Neither of these moves are a first for the streaming music industry. Microsoft-powered Zune is already on Xboxes and therefore in the living room, Pandora is seemingly everywhere – including vehicles equipped with Ford SYNC, and several Internet-connected TVs, Blu-ray players, DVRs and other home media center boxes ship with built-in app stores where Pandora, Last.fm and those like them are already present. Plus, let’s not forget the powerhouses: Apple TV and its competitor Google TV, which is set to launch its own Google Music service this year, something it would likely integrate into its TV product.However, the difference between many of the streaming music services – those also called “streaming radio” services – and what MOG and Rdio provide is that the former play radio-like “stations” based on an artist or genre of music you like, while the latter offer subscription-based music where you can download songs, manage playlists and play any tune on demand at any time. MOG and Rdio aren’t all that different from the most recent incarnation of Napster, for example, the once illegal file-sharing network turned legitimate business, but neither have the clout of the Napster brand name (good or bad as that may be). They do have millions of songs, though, thanks to partnerships with the major labels.In an increasingly untethered world, mobile music is being delivered on demand, over-the-air, “all you can eat” style, not via downloads that take up physical space on a device…or worse, downloads that must be synced from a desktop to a phone by way of a USB cable.Both services fill the void the long-rumored “cloud iTunes” may one day offer. But that day has still not arrived, leaving those that want to pay for streaming music via subscription no choice but to look outside Apple’s ecosystem.So What’s New? A MOG Toolkit for ManufacturersAt the Consumer Electronics Show (CES 2011), MOG has launched something called MOG Fusion, a program that includes all the necessary tools for consumer electronics or auto manufacturers to integrate MOG into their devices or cars. Fusion includes five core APIs (application programming interfaces) which provide access to MOG’s functions and features like playback, search, history, playlists, preferences and more. Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting A Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai… Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… However, the service is not wide open – interested suppliers and manufacturers must first contact MOG for access to these tool. Once accepted, they’ll have access to the APIs, documentation and the other necessary info to port MOG to their products. MOG’s launch partner in Fusion is Visteon, a global automotive supplier.Rdio & Sonos Stream Music in Your HomeRdio, the company started by Skype founders Niklas Zennstrom and Janus Friis, has partnered with home music system maker Sonos to bring its service to the Sonos Multi-Room Music System, which already has partnerships in place with other music services, like European (and apparently, never to be stateside) service Spotify, plus Last.fm, Pandora, Napster and others.

first_imgWe think that we will lose the relationship we have with our client or prospect by bringing up the difficult issues that they don’t really want to face. We believe that speaking to or about those issues will somehow cause us to lose their trust, especially when it’s clear that they are dealing with a challenging issue. But nothing could be further from the truth.Fear of Going FirstThe lesser salesperson isn’t brave enough to bring up their client’s deepest, most difficult challenges because they are afraid they will alienate the client by asking them to face their real dragon. To the client who is dealing with the challenge, that salesperson doesn’t look like someone who can help, someone who can make a real difference.Courage and TrustThe person who gains their client’s trust is the person who has the courage to address the issue they are struggling with. The willingness to engage around the difficult issues is what makes that person someone worth doing business with. It demonstrates that you are willing to help them with something you both recognize is going to be difficult. This doesn’t destroy trust—it builds it.You Go FirstYour clients need to be brave. Change is always a step into the unknown. It is difficult to make real change in any organization, even a small team. It means that people have to agree to face their fears, and it means they have to do things differently.You need to be brave in order to help your clients. You have to have the courage to address the issues that might make things more difficult for you by making a deal more complicated to win.You have to be brave enough to commit yourself to helping your client make improvements. You have to have the intestinal fortitude to commit yourself to being accountable for helping your client make the changes and steer them clear to the other side of their challenge. Doing these things will earn you their trust.When it comes to having the courage to deal with the biggest and most challenging problems your clients have, you need to go first. If you are going to ask your client to have courage, you need to first show it yourself.last_img read more

first_imgPre-orders for Samsung Electronics Co Ltd’s flagship Galaxy S8 smartphone have exceeded those of its predecessor S7, mobile business chief Koh Dong-jin said on Thursday, suggesting many consumers were unfazed by last year’s Galaxy Note 7 fires.The S8, which begin sales in South Korea, the United States and Canada on April 21, will be central to the South Korean firm’s recovery from the swift withdrawal of the Note 7 phablet.The new device has been well-received, and some investors and analysts said it could set a first-year sales record for the smartphone giant.”It’s still a bit early, but initial response to the pre-orders that have begun at various places across the world have been better than expected,” Koh said at a media briefing.The S8 will be the safest Galaxy smartphone to date due to safety measures implemented to avoid the battery failures that caused some Note 7s to spontaneously combust, he said.Analysts expect Samsung to record its best-ever quarterly profit in April-June, buoyed by strong S8 sales and a memory chip market boom that is widely expected to deliver record revenue for the industry this year.Also Read: Samsung says Galaxy S8, S8+ are already a hitThe new device, equipped with either 5.8-inch or 6.2-inch (14.73 cm or 15.75 cm) curved screens, sports the largest screens to date among all of Samsung’s flagship phones due to a redesign.Koh also said the firm plans to use the S8 to try to recover in China, where Samsung has been out of the top five vendors in recent years due to heightened competition from local rivals such as Huawei Technologies Co Ltd.advertisementHe said Samsung will aim to regain market share in China even if it takes time, without elaborating on specific strategies.last_img read more

Invest Turks and Caicos to get new home says new CEO

first_img Related Items:invest turks and caicos, john rutherford Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsAppProvidenciales, 20 Jan 2016 – There will be a new home for the new Invest Turks and Caicos Agency according to its Chief Executive, John Rutherford. On the launch at the Provo Golf Club on Monday night, Rutherford told media that there is a diverse mandate handed to the organization to create a more diverse economy.“We will attract more foreign investment to the islands, not just in tourism and hospitality but we know the importance of diversifying the economy so we want to look at what other sectors we can attract to the islands. But we want to also help domestic investors as well, help them grow their business, expand their business. And then finally we have been given responsibility for the micro, small and medium enterprise program and that kicks off on the first of April.” The goal is to be more assertive said Rutherford, agreeing that indeed the launch was a big night for Invest Turks and Caicos which is also tasked with bigger branding of the TCI. The CE made it clear that while TC Invest did a lot of good things, Invest Turks and Caicos Agency will not be a bank and their goal is to raise economic activity.
