Panel at UN looks at progress challenges in Afghanistan over past year

Although the past year has seen much progress in Afghanistan, the international community cannot rest on its laurels, Secretary-General Kofi Annan said in a message today to a discussion convened in New York on the 12 months since United Nations-sponsored talks in Germany led to agreement on steps towards the re-establishment of permanent government institutions.The Bonn Agreement set an ambitious schedule for 2002, the Secretary-General said in his message to the panel on “Afghanistan, One Year Later,” which was delivered by Kieran Prendergast, the Under-Secretary-General for Political Affairs. That accord called for the establishment of an interim Government, the convening of a Loya Jirga tribal council and the creation of a number of commissions, he noted.”All this, along with the provision of humanitarian assistance, was to take place in a land where infrastructure, both physical and institutional, had been destroyed,” Mr. Annan said. “And yet much of this has been accomplished.”In looking ahead, the Secretary-General stressed that the challenges facing Afghanistan remain immense, from security to development to creating the political and social institutions necessary for a stable, free and prosperous society with equal rights for all. “I hope, and expect, that in examining the past year you will also help us to light the way forward through the next year,” he said.Convened at the initiative of General Assembly President Jan Kavan of the Czech Republic, the panel consisted of two sessions focusing on political and economic issues. In his opening remarks, Mr. Kavan said the discussion could enrich this year’s activities commemorating the first anniversary of the Bonn talks and could lead the UN to specific conclusions on post-conflict reconstruction in Afghanistan, thereby providing new recommendations for related UN activities in the future.For his part, Afghan President Hamid Karzai welcomed the event in a message read out at the discussion. “We find that this meeting, in the form of a panel, will serve to be instrumental in bringing further awareness to the problems facing Afghanistan, including a further reminder to donor countries to implement their commitments of assistance to Afghanistan,” he said.Participants included Jean Arnaud, the deputy chief of the UN Assistance Mission in Afghanistan (UNAMA), Julia Taft, Assistant Administrator of the UN Development Programme (UNDP), Mukesh Kapila, a former Special Adviser on Afghanistan, and Amin Farhang, the Afghan Minister of Reconstruction.Others who took part in the discussion included journalist Ahmed Rashid, Barnett Rubin, Director of Studies at the New York University Center on International Cooperation, Eric Morris of the UN High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) and Bernard Frahi of the UN Office on Drugs and Crime. read more

Mens Basketball Ohio State braces for change of expectations following Michigan State

Ohio State head coach Chris Holtmann calls out to the Buckeyes in the second half in the game against Michigan State on Jan. 7 in Value City Arena. Ohio State won 80-64. Credit: Jack Westerheide | Photo EditorPreseason expectations for Ohio State’s men’s basketball team were about as low as they’ve ever been for the program. The Buckeyes missed not only the NCAA Tournament, but the NIT last season. Even with the change at head coach from Thad Matta to Chris Holtmann and the addition of three new recruits, Ohio State was not counted on as a contender in the Big Ten.That narrative is gone.After Ohio State beat No. 1 Michigan State 80-64 Sunday, the questions turned to the postseason. Will Ohio State contend in the Big Ten tournament? Not only will it make the tournament, but what seed will it be when it gets there?But Holtmann said after the game he will not look further ahead than Thursday. There will be no talk of postseason play in the locker room. Ohio State beat high-caliber opponents in recent seasons before and struggled shortly thereafter. It beat Michigan State at home last season and lost eight of its next 14 games to end the year.“We could go in the tank here the next couple weeks. We certainly don’t want this moment to define us,” Holtmann said Sunday. “And we don’t want it to be the pinnacle of the season, as good as it is.”The grounds for pessimistic preseason predictions were warranted. Ohio State finished last season with a 17-15 record (7-11 in the Big Ten), its worst record since a 14-16 showing during the 2003-04 campaign — the year before Matta was hired. There was no reason to believe Ohio State would be a Big Ten title contender.“I think you only have to open a college basketball preseason magazine and read where we’re picked: 12, 13, 14, 11. It’s all over, but it’s near the bottom,” Holtmann told The Lantern Oct. 25.“We’re not discarding this year as kind of a throw-away year in any way. We are pouring ourselves into this team and this year, and hope that it will pay dividends.”This team is not last season’s Ohio State squad. At this point last season, the Buckeyes had an 11-7 record, were 1-4 in the Big Ten and had embarrassing losses to Florida Atlantic and Illinois. This recent win for Ohio State is not necessarily a fluke. Though it did not win games against its previous three ranked opponents, it had not been upset by a heavy underdog and it was already 3-0 in the conference with wins against Michigan and Wisconsin. Just as Matta turned that 2003-04 team around into a 20-12 record the next season in his first season of coaching, Holtmann is at the forefront of an unscheduled turnaround for the Buckeyes. “I’m surprised. Coaches get surprised. I got surprised,” Holtmann said Sunday, referring to the speed of the turnaround his team appears to be taking.Ohio State received the 29th-most points in the most recent Associated Press poll and is listed as the 33rd-best team in the nation by Ken Pomeroy, who projects the team will finish the year with a 22-9 record and 13-5 Big Ten record. Bates-Diop is now appearing to be a favorite for Big Ten Player of the Year and is in Pomeroy’s list of the top 10 best players in the nation. The Buckeyes have only beat one team considered to be in the upper echelon of college basketball, and they are still not going to be viewed as a national title contender. But winning the conference is no longer out of the question, and neither is making the NCAA Tournament. The script might not be entirely flipped on this Buckeye team, but no one is going to sleep on them anymore. Other teams will take notice, starting with Maryland at 7 p.m. Thursday.Michigan State head coach Tom Izzo said the Buckeyes need to be prepared. Speaking as someone at the helm of one of the top teams in the nation, he knows what comes with the low number next to his team’s name.“This is what’s going to happen every night. It’ll happen to Ohio State. When you’re 15-2, 14-3, you know, 15-3, [the Buckeyes will] get ranked, and deservingly should be,” Izzo said Sunday. “You got to handle things a little differently because you’re going to get somebody else’s best shot.” read more

IGS Xplore – derisking early stage mineral exploration

first_imgMaking critical decisions in the early stages of mineral exploration has become much easier with the launch of IGS Xplore at 2016’s Mining Indaba in Cape Town.Mineral exploration is a time consuming, labour intensive and often costly exercise, even before prospects have been identified and licenced. Using IGS Xplore, the new mineral prospectivity software service developed by International Geoscience Services (IGS), “will vastly reduce the time and money spent on this early-stage work to enable decision makers to make well-informed choices about where to target their efforts,” IGS says.IGS Xplore is an innovative semantically-driven (knowledge-driven) software, which rapidly tests the different types of geodata that exist for a region/country, including geology, geochemistry, known mineral occurrences and other data sources, to identify early-stage exploration targets and generate a portfolio of value-adding prospectivity maps for a region/country on a commodity basis.last_img read more

Hellboy Poster Releasaed Vin Diesels Bloodshot More Comic Movie News

first_imgIt’s easy to get caught up in the cycle of Marvel Cinematic Universe vs. whatever DC’s plans are now, but there are other comic book movies coming out. Some of them are pretty exciting on their own too, proving that not every comics adaptation has to fit into some grand multi-movie story. Like, for example, the new Hellboy movie, starring David Harbour of Stranger Things. Fans of his work on that show already know he has the perfect delivery and demeanor for a character like Hellboy. And in a poster released by Entertainment Weekly, he looks, um, damned good in the role.via Entertainment WeeklyWow. He certainly looks like Hellboy, alright. What’s really interesting, though, are the horns. They’re fully formed on this poster, which is not how we’re used to seeing the character. Hellboy is The Beast who’s supposed to end the world. As you might know if you’ve read the comics or seen the Guillermo del Toro movies, he rejects that idea completely. He normally shaves his horns down into two round stubs. So why are they out in full force here? Creator Mike Mignola says the film follows one particular arc from the comics very closely. Hellboy will fight a sorceress who wants to exact vengeance on humanity. It seems on this poster, Hellboy has let his horns grow out so he can access the demonic power necessary to beat her. I’m guessing that comes with its own complications though.We definitely still miss Ron Perlman and Guillermo del Toro’s take on the character, as those two movies remain some of the best comic book adaptations around. But with the backing of the original creator, this movie looks like it will be able to hold its own. Especially because Harbour makes one amazing-looking Hellboy. As cool as that poster is, I can’t wait to see him in action. It shouldn’t be too long before we get a trailer though. The movie’s panel at New York Comic Con is fast-approaching, and the film itself comes out April 12, 2019.via Valiant ComicsHellboy isn’t the only upcoming superhero movie not attached to Marvel or DC. Vin Diesel is starring in the movie adaptation of Valiant Comics’ Bloodshot. Diesel said in a video on his Instagram that he’s currently nine weeks into shooting, and he just saw some pretty exciting footage. As the movie is still being filmed, we aren’t going to get to see it just yet. But Diesel assures fans that they’re going to love what this movie has to offer when it comes out in a couple years. Hearing the news about @JaredLeto as #morbius at first I was like then I was excited, let’s see what he brings to the #Marvel world! pic.twitter.com/WcJheMkLvA— BossLogic (@Bosslogic) June 28, 2018We’re really doing this, huh? Alright. At least Leto on his own already looks creepy enough to be a blood-drinking vampire. So the movie has that going for it. Whenever it comes out. Sony has not yet announced a release date.We’ve got a list of every comic book TV show that’s in production, including all the Marvel and DC shows. Learn how the Guardians story arc could change Avengers 4. Catch the Captain Marvel updates that will lead into the upcoming film. Stay on top of all comic movie news here. It’s not much, but it’s certainly got us curious. I really want to know what he saw that’s blowing him and his producing partner’s mind so much. You can also see just a little bit of makeup from the movie on Diesel in this video. It doesn’t tell us much, and it’s almost certainly not the full makeup for the character, but there’s some damage marks on his nose and cheeks, like he just got out of a fight scene.The movie will reportedly stay true to the comics, according to Comic Book. Diesel will play a contract killer-turned informant who’s injected with nano-machines in a secret government experiment. They allow him to heal quickly, interface with any technology and modify his body. His memory is erased and he’s turned into a weapon until he decides to start looking into his past. It’s a great premise for a movie. You almost wonder why it took this long for someone to adapt it. Valiant may not have the name recognition that Marvel or DC does, but they produce some great comics. There haven’t been any truly fantastic adaptations of them, but hopefully that will change when Bloodshot premieres in 2020.via MarvelFinally, over in the still-Marvel-but-decidedly-non-MCU side of comic book movies, Sony Pictures is already working on their follow-up to Venom. Most people probably assumed it was going to be Black Cat and Silver Sable, since that was another Spider-verse movie Sony has brought up in the past. Unfortunately, it looks like we’re going to have to wait a little longer. Instead, Sony’s next attempt at giving a Spider-Man villain its own movie will be Morbius. If you don’t remember Morbius, well… he’s not one of the wall-crawler’s more well-known villains. He’s a biochemist who’s working on a treatment for his own blood disorder. As they so often do in Spider-Man comics, the experiment goes wrong. Morbius turns himself into a living vampire who must feed on blood.  Oh, and the movie is going to star Jared Leto.In an interview with Comic Book, Venom and Morbius producers Matt Tolmach and Avi Arad praised Leto, saying they expect “awesomeness” from the actor and a similar level of commitment he brought to playing The Joker in Suicide Squad. You remember, that great movie that everyone loved, Suicide Squad? Tolmach clarified, “Just a similar level of intensity and charisma and devotion to the character.” Cool. Well, at least we can brace ourselves for another news cycle about how weird and crazy he was on set. That’s fun. The guy sounds like a real joy to work with. Some are really getting into this announcement, though. Fan artist Boss Logic created this image showing what Leto could look like in the role.center_img Let us know what you like about Geek by taking our survey.last_img read more

Press Brings Metered Paywall Platform to Video

first_img“We saw hundreds of established media companies and even more newcomers launch digital video and then begin to realize-as our print publishers saw before them-that advertising revenue alone will not be enough to sustain these businesses,” Crovitz says in a statement. “Now we have begun to see some of them make the mistake that some print publishers also made. They have installed a hard paywall, which not only slashes ad revenue but does not allow viewers to sample, to see our proven welcome messaging, and to get engaged in the product before being asked to buy it.”See Also: Publishers Tighten the Paywall MeterUnlike some recent video initiatives however—like the quick-hit style of HuffPo Live, which recently celebrated it’s first full year of broadcasting and announced both an international expansion and domestic downsizing of its operations—Brill admits his time-based platform will work better for “long-form” videos with “some kind of narrative arc.”The product was officially launched on the Courtroom View Network earlier today.Editor’s Note: FOLIO: is a Press+ client. To stay updated on the latest FOLIO: news, become a Facebook fan and follow us on Twitter! Publishers across all segments are turning to video in an effort to deepen engagement with their audiences. But engagement alone doesn’t generate revenue.As native advertising and sponsored content initiatives squeeze profits out of engagement on the sales side, paywalls have been a way to generate earnings directly from readers. RR Donnelley’s Press+ has introduced a time-based video paywall in the same line of thought as the page view model the company began with in 2009 under co-CEOs Steven Brill, founder of cable network Court TV, and Gordon Crovitz, former Wall Street Journal publisher.Closely following the page view model’s format, viewers first get an alert that they’ll have to pay for content after they reach certain time limit. A few minutes later, they’ll hit the actual paywall. They’ll have the option to pay for that one video or to choose a subscription package at that point.last_img read more

How social media changes political landscape

first_imgWith over half of the world’s population now using internet and with Dhaka ranked second among the top cities of the world in using Facebook, the social media has emerged to be an extremely effective tool for political debate and criticism in the country.In recent times, intense social media activism, primarily on Facebook and Twitter — ranging from academic debates to campaign for justice to satirical troll — has forced the authorities concerned to give in on a number of occasions, signalling that the platform is going to be very crucial in the run up to the next general elections.Apparently disturbed with various anti-government campaigns, the authorities had imposed a ban on the social networking site Facebook, citing security reasons; in 2015 although it lifted the ban 22 days into it following a huge outcry against the government move.By this time, a good number of people were sued and arrested for, what the authorities said, defaming people in the authorities or hurting religious sentiment.In the wake of growing use of the social media as well as internet in both personal and public life, the government has undertaken an initiative to amend the ICT Act ostensibly to make harsher provisions for “online crimes”.A massive Facebook campaign seeking justice for the killing of Sylhet child Rajan, Khulna child Rakib and Cumilla girl Sohagi Jahan Tanu forced the authorities to expedite the process of bringing the culprits to book.Another wave of Facebook campaign condemning the attack on Sylhet girl Khadija Akhter Nargis brought the attacker – the ruling party’s student wing Bangladesh Chhatra League (BCL) leader Badrul Alam – to book too.While intense social media campaign brought apparently successful culmination in ‘no VAT on education’ movement and quota-reform movement, the social media also played a key role in busting up the fake news or fake claims by the people in the top authorities.Of late, the state minister for foreign affairs, Mohammed Shahriar Alam, came under huge criticism by Facebook users over the issue of passport of Bangladesh Nationalist Party’s (BNP) exiled acting chairman Tarique Rahman.     On a Facebook post of the minister which got about 5,000 emoticon reactions and over 500 shares in just 24 hours, about 1,900 people either criticised him or raised questions on his claim, with a very few hailing him.According to a global report titled “Digital in 2017 Global Overview”, the number of social media users rose by 11 million in Bangladesh in one year from 2016 to 2017, which is the eighth fastest in terms of growth.Dhaka was ranked second among the top cities of the world with 22 million active Facebook users in 2017 which covered 1.1 per cent of total users and remained second even in the Global Overview 2018.The number of users, however, might not be a real one because one individual can open and use more than one Facebook accounts with different user IDs.According to the Global Overview 2018, Bangladesh has a total of 30 million active social media users with a penetration rate of 18 per cent and as much as 28 million of them remain active using mobile phones.“Expressing political opinion is always difficult in a country of limited political and media freedom. The governments always try to suppress political expression but many, in defiance, resort to using social media to speak up. And this is exactly what is happening in Bangladesh like the most censored countries such as Egypt, Iran, and Turkey,” social media researcher Daud Isa, also a PhD student of Mass Communication, at University of Georgia, USA, told Prothom Alo, when contacted over mail.Also a formerly Bangladeshi journalist, Isa said, “The social media has nowadays become an effective platform for political expression in Bangladesh in the wake of limited political freedom there. What people used to discuss in the tea stalls or write on the wall earlier in the past is being discussed now on the social media, primarily on Facebook wall.“Even those who wouldn’t take to the streets to register his/her protests against any decision to avoid any hassle now give posts on Facebook or Twitter criticising the decision. The social media has made the process of registering protests easy albeit it entails risks of being caught by the authorities like in the case of physical protests,” he added.He said the social media has been instrumental in exchanging information and mass communications although there is a risk of misinformation, thanks to no filtering system.When contacted, Dhaka University’s law professor and political commentator Asif Nazrul said the people never got such easy means to express their voices or to register their protests the way they are now being able to do through the social media.“It’s much easier than graffiti. Against this backdrop, the social media has become a powerful means of generating public opinion. It played a pivotal role in various movements like the quota movement, the no-VAT movement and Tanu killing protests.”    He, however, feared that the platform might be used unilaterally by the ruling quarter in the days to come ahead of crucial general elections, given the way the government is enacting stricter legislation.Another political commentator Zafrullah Chowdhury, the founder of Gonoshasthaya Kendra, said the importance of social media has “increased in the time of autocracy” in the country.“The people’s involvement in the social media activism has increased significantly. The main reason behind it is absence of democracy when people are not allowed to hold rallies or processions, to express their opinions and when dissenting voices are not allowed to be expressed. Recent quota movement has proven how effective the social media is,” he added.Talking to Prothom Alo, ruling Bangladesh Awami League’s (AL) joint general secretary Mahbubul Alam Hanif said the social media has emerged to be an important tool for ‘exchange of information’, education, political debates and sharing social experiences.As for the possible role of the social media in the upcoming general elections, Hanif said it would play a crucial role in the run up to the polls as Facebook and other social media often provide “heated debate and discussions” on various social and political issues.“The social media has been the alternative platform to speak out in the era when there is no democracy although the government is trying hard to keep its control over it,” noted opposition Bangladesh Nationalist Party (BNP) senior joint secretary general Ruhul Kabir Rizvi.Saying that neither the mainstream media nor the social media can play a vibrant role during the reign of an “anti-people government”, Rizvi feared that a certain coterie may use the platform to spread fake news in the run up to the next general elections to be held in eight months’ time.last_img read more

Google Maps is sending tourists to the wrong Norwegian town

first_img FOSSMORK, NORWAY — A small Norwegian town has suddenly become a new hotspot for tourists, all thanks to a glitch on Google Maps.According to Lonely Planet, hundreds of tourists in search of a famous cliff in Preikestolen are instead being mistakenly led to the tiny town of Fossmork, located 30 kilometres away. An error on the popular web mapping service has pinpointed the bridge to Fossmork as one that leads to Preikestolen, which attracts approximately 200,000 people each year who come to marvel over its 604-metre high cliff.PriekestolenLocal resident Helge Fossmark told the newspaper Stavanger Aftenblad, “We have sent hundreds of tourists away in no uncertainty that they’re on the wrong side of the fjord. In the summer season up to 10-15 cars show up each day.”Although 30 kilometres isn’t a long distance, Fossmork and Priekestolen are divided by a fjord, which requires a 40-minute drive to get around it. This is especially inconvenient considering the hike up Priekestolen’s cliff takes a couple of hours to complete.More news:  Windstar celebrates record-breaking bookings in JulyA Google Norway spokesperson told Aftenposten that Google Maps will resolve the issue “as soon as possible.”In the meantime, Fossmork will continue to welcome those who are lost with open arms.

Putin on Victory Day Russia a security guarantor

first_imgPutin told 11,000 servicemen standing in tight formation on the square and the war veterans in the spectator stands that “we remember what the tragedy of war means and will do everything so that nobody will ever dare to unleash it anew, threaten our children, our homes and our land.”He added, “We will do everything to strengthen security on the planet.”The Soviet Union lost an estimated 26 million people in the war, of whom 8.5 million were soldiers.Among the thousands of spectators along the square were elderly World War II veterans, displaying rows of medals.Putin lauded them, saying “We will always remember that it was Russia, the Soviet Union, that ruined the misanthropic, bloody, arrogant plans of the fascists.”The precisely choreographed parade included servicemen marching through the 5.5-acre (2.3-hectare) square and a convoy of more than 100 military vehicles ranging from armored cars to mobile missile-launchers and tanks. In the concluding display, more than 60 military aircraft flew over the square in close formation.(Copyright 2013 The Associated Press. All rights reserved.

By Fresh Produce Marketing founder Lisa Cork Ive

first_img By Fresh Produce Marketing founder Lisa CorkI’ve spent the last few months researching the impact of omni-channel retailing on fresh produce. Part of this was in preparation to speak at an marketing conference on the topic in Europe and part of this was to satisfy my own curiosity as a brand and marketing strategist.What does omni-channel actually mean? According to Shopify, a company dedicated to helping companies sell online, “Omni-channel retailing — or, omni-channel (meaning, all channels) — is a fully-integrated approach to commerce that provides shoppers a unified experience across online and offline channels (e.g., touchpoints). True omni-channel shopping extends from brick-and-mortar locations to mobile-browsing, e-commerce marketplaces, onsite storefronts, social media, retargeting, and everything in between.”Within the fresh produce industry, where our consumer sales channels are less complex, I have interpreted omni-channel to mean an integrated approach to selling fruits and vegetables both offline and online.A simple example to explain this is Instacart. Instacart is the phenomena that has enable brick and mortar retailers to offer online and home delivery options using their existing, brick and mortar offer, including fresh produce. Let me use the following story as an example.I recently visited my hometown in California. Even with a population of only 50,000 people, we have access to Instacart (thanks to 36 local Insta shoppers) and seven different retail supermarkets. Wanting to ‘test’ the system, I placed an order for Food4Less, via Instacart, which gave me seamless access to Food4Less’s grocery and produce offer. I booked my delivery time and my Food4Less order arrived on schedule and was exactly what I had ordered, even down to the ripe and unripe avocados.To me, this is a simple but good example of omni-channel in action. I could go and do my own grocery shopping at Food4Less or I can use a service like Instacart that makes Food4Less items available to me online and for home delivery.Omni-channel is changing food shopping as we know it. While the numbers are small now, there is both evolution and revolution taking place and food shopping is an industry poised for disruption.As for fresh produce, there are multiple factors that will see shopper numbers and the conversion to omni-channel lag behind shelf-stable, packaged foods and grocery staples. But never say never and once the technical and logistical issues are overcome, look for more and more fruit and veg to be sold online.A good case study to note is Ocado in the UK now reports that 40% of its orders are for chilled fresh food and when they add bananas and potatoes into the mix, this moves to over 50% fresh.The lesson here is be prepared for change and the time to start thinking about the impact of omni-channel on your brand or business is now. I’ve talked to brick and mortar retailers who say omni-channel will be fully embedded within three years – that is how fast individual retailers are moving to prevent loss of sales and shares to their retail competition.Just when you were trying to get your head around the disruption caused by omni-channel selling…there is another major disruptor looming on the horizon – voice technology.Simply search ‘voice activation’ and you will get a million hits with all kinds of stats and data. If you like the numbers, check out this blog for voice search stats: https://www.wordstream.com/blog/ws/2018/04/10/voice-search-statistics-2018. One of the stats the blog shares is that by 2020, comScore is predicting that 50% of all searches will be done by voice. Other experts note Google has reported that around 55% of teens and 40% of adults use voice search daily and voice search is growing faster than any other type of search.Here in New Zealand, a new ad by telecom company Spark paints an entertaining (and frightening) picture of what they are calling ‘Generation Voice.’ Click on this link to see the ad: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_vaNl5d4rjk. It is interesting to think that even for young children, voice searching (and buying?) becomes available as soon as they are old enough to verbalise a request. Surely this will be a game changer for the next generation.To get my head around voice, I decided to start playing with voice activated searching and getting an understanding for the impact voice will have on brands and brand naming. What I can tell you is, voice changes everything – and here is why you need to care about this.I met recently with a company who wanted me to provide an external opinion on a new brand that had been proposed by their agency. The new brand name was long and not very distinctive. I asked the client, “Have you tested it on voice as part of ensuring the brand will work for you in the future?” and they had not. So we tested it…and it failed.On a search mechanism like Alexa by Amazon, the name was so generic that a search pulled up a raft of products with no relationship to fruit. The name was also long and slightly hard to pronounce, which also caused issues.Let me link this column together. More fresh produce companies will turn to branding as a strategy for survival in an omni-channel world. The alternative to branding is to become a generic, commodity supplier and I can’t see that being a satisfactory outcome for most produce suppliers. So brand is only going to grow in importance.If brand grows, then brand naming becomes important. Not only will a brand need to be suitable for offline sales and online sales, but a brand will need to be successful in a voice-activated search world too. That’s a lot of pressure for a brand!For those of you considering a new brand or rebranding as a part of your future strategy, here are five ways voice activation will change how you think about a new brand name.Think memorable. While anyone who creates a brand strives for this, memorability becomes even more important in a voice activated world where consumers may not have your product or packaging in front of them to know what to ask for. It is important they remember your brand.Think visual. Create a visual brand ‘hook’ as part of creating a memorable brand. Pink Lady apples is a good brand name. It is both visual AND linked to a core product attribute – the pink colour of the apple’s skin. Cotton Candy grapes is another great brand name. Cotton Candy is very visual AND it links to the flavour of the grapes.Verbally test any new brand to ensure it can be understood. If you are given a list of brands to choose from, test them verbally either using a home based device like Echo or using an app like Google or the Amazon shopping app. For example, I tested trying to find the Mighties kiwifruit brand on the Amazon Shopping app. I have tried and tried to get the app to find Mighties Kiwifruit but the app cannot understand what I am asking for. It will pull up brands with the name Mighty but it does not seem able to understand Mighties. This is important because if your brand can’t be found using voice, this is not good news for the future.Beware of clever, misspelled brand names. I know misspelled brands are all the rage now, especially in packaged food. Brands like Nootra, Verday, Vybes, Tranquini (verbal search shows Train Queenie) are all great on-shelf but the spelling and sound of the name makes them hard to find via voice. This is an important consideration.This final one is just a hunch but two/three syllable names search well, providing you have met the other rules above. There is something about the voice cadence of multiple syllables that works with search right now.Fresh produce is late to the branding party and the new rules around voice-activated search will make creating a good brand name challenging. Hopefully my observations provide some guidance for your next brand naming exercise. Happy branding!

first_imgReturnOne wayMulti-cityFromAdd nearby airports ToAdd nearby airportsDepart14/08/2019Return21/08/2019Cabin Class & Travellers1 adult, EconomyDirect flights onlySearch flights Map 6. Luxury designLuxury is a combination of both service and product excellence, and many places in the Maldives tick both boxes. Bungalows are often constructed using indigenous materials, natural colours and local building expertise. Vivid tropical foliage surrounds sun decks, luxury beach lounges, romantic viewpoints and plunge pools, and everywhere brands itself a little differently. Stay at the Conrad Maldives Rangali Island Resort for some novel aquatic attractions, including dining below the waves in an all-glass underwater restaurant. 8. Dining your wayIf you’d rather explore gastronomically instead of geographically, you can enjoy many high quality restaurants or personalised dining experiences, from sunrise breakfast on your own private beach at Jumeirah Vittaveli Resort to a beach BBQ with your own personal chef and server. Round everything off with a tailor-made sunset cruise or a paradise picnic at resorts like Velassaru Maldives. Okay, enough with the superlatives. Here are eight reasons why this island archipelago can easily claim the status of ‘ultimate luxury holiday’.1. Getting there in styleTravelling to the Maldives is where your adventure begins. International flights generally arrive at Male Airport on Hulhule Island, but it’s the transfers that happen in style. The journey to your – often private – island could be by speedboat (where you’ll be welcomed by staff with fresh towels and cold beverages) or some resorts even fly you in by 13-seater seaplane, à la James Bond. However you travel, you can bet on attentive service like you’ve never encountered before, and some of the broadest smiles this side of the Equator. Direct flights to Male are available from some of the UK’s major airports including London, Manchester and Birmingham. Enjoying the sound of luxury holidays? Here a few more dreamy destinations to think about:Where to find your perfect luxury honeymoonFive-star city break or beach paradise?

Discover these 16 luxury glampsites.Skyscanner is the world’s travel search engine, helping your money go further on flights, hotels and car hire. 3. Five-star serviceThere is one stand-out reason why people treat themselves to a holiday in the Maldives: it means a different type of break altogether. Your every need is anticipated, from the quality of your silk sheets to the luxury products in your bathroom – even extending to a personal concierge ensuring the rose petals are arranged just so on your pillow, whilst running your candlelit bath in anticipation of your return and making preparations for dinner as relaxing and stress-free as possible. Hotels are typically located on individual islands, so you never have to walk too far before a golf car driven by the friendly hotel staff will pick you up. Physical effort? What’s THAT? 4. Natural beautyIt’s very easy to connect with nature when you are constantly surrounded by it. It starts with spectacular sunrises, which you can admire from your terrace, with shades of coral and turquoise lagoons that stretch out for miles. Maldives resorts are typically built on the water, so you’ll hear the waves crash against the pillars of your private balcony, and watch shoals of tropical fish shimmer below. When you’ve enjoyed the perfect temperatures both in the water and out, you can head out to enjoy a magical sunset between swaying palms. If you are lucky (and staying at the Taj Exotica Hotel on Emboodhu Finolhu) you can also catch the school of stingrays heading to shallow water for an evening feeding.5. Limitless relaxationLandscaped swimming pools, paradise-level surroundings and endless varieties of pampering make for a supremely relaxing visit. Families, couples and friends alike come here to rest, recharge and, well, do as little as possible. Spa hotels like W Retreat & Spa offer everything from open-air hot stone massage next to the waves to simply floating away on the Indian Ocean on your own personal catamaran. Bliss in every sense.center_img Pin it for later 2. Pack for endless sunshineWhat to pack? Not that much! Remember, you’re going to be in a warm, reliably sunny climate, and one of the Maldives’ great pastimes is simply basking on the beach. It’s a great excuse to don that sun hat and sarong – but don’t forget the sunscreen, including when you are snorkelling, as you’ll hardly notice the sun on your back when you’re chasing fish along the sea floor. To make the most of your experience, bring a disposable underwater camera or a good-quality waterproof housing for your camera. Come evening time, all you’ll need is a bit of sparkle on your strappy dress to accompany those romantic sunsets – just keep that insect repellent handy to ward off pesky mosquitoes. Image: ©Lezaan Roos7. Activities to dive intoIf you do want to stir yourself and get the blood pumping, you’ll never be short of an activity to suit your mood. Windsurfing, kiteboarding, kayaking, beach volleyball – the list is quite literally exhausting. But it’s underwater where the real treats lie here: go snorkelling and enjoy the luminous rainbow coloured corals, or dive deeper with the shipwreck scuba services. The variety of marine landscapes over the 26 atolls here is what turns the Maldives from a honeymoon destination with frills into a fully-fledged professional diving destination. Expect to see whale sharks, manta rays and even hammerheads down below, and if it all gets too much like hard work – there’s always the infinity pool.

CalabresiJan 05 2017Russian President Vladimir Putin has always been a night owl holding meetings into the early hours of the morning He’s also the proprietor of several Twitter accounts So it’s possible that early Moscow time on Jan 4 2017 he saw the following tweet from President-elect Donald Trump pop up on his screen complaining about an apparent delay in the release of the US intelligence report on Russian meddling in the 2016 election: "The ‘Intelligence’ briefing on so-called ‘Russian hacking’ was delayed until Friday perhaps more time needed to build a case Very strange"At that moment as it happens the final highly classified report sat printed and ready in the office of the principal intelligence analyst overseeing the investigation And neither Putin nor Trump was going to like the conclusion The document represented the consensus opinion of the heads of the US intelligence community the National Security Agency the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Department of Homeland Security that Putin had engaged in a broad intentional influence operation against the November vote according to several senior intelligence and Administration officialsRelatedCongressMatthew Whitaker’s Appointment Is the First Big Test for House DemocratsCongressMatthew Whitaker’s Appointment Is the First Big Test for House DemocratsThe evidence contained in the report was so highly classified that not even the analyst’s assistant would be allowed to package it for hand delivery across the river to President Barack Obama at the White House the following day Three separate versions were to be distributed over the coming days: one top-secret highly restricted version that included signals intelligence and other sources and methods; a less classified document for Congress and agency officials; and a third declassified version for release to the public And once those findings became public say the senior intelligence and Administration officials a whole new round of political recriminations would ensueIn fact the slowdown in the report’s release was the result of the White House trying to manage the inevitable fallout Obama was scheduled for a meeting with Democratic lawmakers on Capitol Hill the next day His staff suggested to the intelligence community that subjecting the President to questions from Democrats about whether the Russians swayed the election and why it had taken Obama so long to counter the cyberattack would fuel partisanship around the issue according to several Administration officials familiar with the requestIt is already clear that the hack of the 2016 presidential election may have been one of the great espionage capers in memory By breaking into and then releasing at key moments in the campaign emails from the Democratic National Committee Russia caught the US political and national-security world flat-footed deploying a new asymmetric weapon against an old enemy Putin’s plot flummoxed the Obama Administration in its final months as it struggled to learn how to fight influence operations in cyberspace While there is no evidence that votes were altered the steady stream of embarrassing revelations from the emails put Hillary Clinton into a defensive crouch And in a razor-thin election there are many Americans who believe with some justification that Putin helped Trump winWhat makes it even better for Putin is the election meddling caps an extraordinary two-year string of military and diplomatic victories that leaves him in a strong position as the new President enters office In Eastern Europe Putin turned a losing hand in Ukraine into a territorial grab of Crimea He has helped fund the rise of nationalist parties in Western Europe and benefited from the resulting weakening of the European Union In the Middle East he has deployed his forces to Syria to save a beleaguered Cold War ally and emerged with newfound influence throughout the regionFor all that Russia remains a troubled country With a thinly stretched military anemic economy and fewer and fewer friends Putin’s urgent task is to figure out how to play his lucky streak into more lasting benefits Which makes the coming debate about the election hacking even more complicated: Putin may have found in Trump a President-elect willing to overlook behavior America has long opposed in favor of a new partnership But Putin cannot yet be sure On one hand Trump often talks a softer line on Moscow On the other he has hard-line stances on the Middle East and nuclear weapons that could threaten Russia’s interests "All we have are some vague sentiments that Trump has expressed during the political campaign and since the election" says Thomas Graham a top Russia adviser to Republican Presidents who has been mentioned as a possible ambassador to Moscow "but you’ve got to translate that into concrete policy"One of Washington’s worst-kept secrets last fall was that the Obama Administration was struggling with good reason over how to respond to Russia’s meddling in the US election Russia seemed most interested in sowing discord and confusion If Obama weighed in with accusations and penalties in the heat of the campaign he would run the risk of adding to the chaos On the other hand leaving the interference unchallenged seemed tantamount to acquiescence–more important it ran the risk of letting it affect the outcomeRelatedDonald J TrumpPutin and President Trump: Smiles and a Thumbs Up at Paris World War I CommemorationDonald J TrumpPutin and President Trump: Smiles and a Thumbs Up at Paris World War I CommemorationObama himself was most worried that Putin might disrupt the actual vote as he has been accused of doing in other countries by meddling with the tally or making it harder to cast ballots In September Obama asked Mike Rogers who runs the NSA to make sure the US knew about and stopped any effort at disruption But the NSA found little evidence Putin could actually affect the counting of the vote "We knew they were probing state and local election systems" says one senior Administration official "But our experts couldn’t figure out how they would use what they were doing to screw with the election because the voting systems in the country are so decentralized"Some White House and intelligence officials now say the NSA’s actions combined with personal warnings from Obama and others forestalled this avenue of attack In fact in retrospect it appears Putin was focused more on psychological operations The most visible aspect of the operation was the theft and publication of emails from Hillary Clinton’s campaign and from the Democratic National and Congressional Campaign committees Released through WikiLeaks and other websites that investigators concluded have links to Russian agents of military intelligence some emails proved not just damaging to Clinton but disruptive to her campaign From late July through Election Day when the leaks abruptly stopped

July Democratic backers of her primary opponent Bernie Sanders shouted "Liar" while others held a banner reading WikiLeaksOne enduring mystery of Putin’s influence operation is what other methods the Russian intelligence services deployed Senior intelligence and White House officials believe the Russians also disseminated fake news stories through automated spam programs and social-media "troll farms" to spread disinformation during the campaign In recent years Russia has been accused of using these methods to undermine elections and advance its political agendas in Eastern and Western Europe America’s fragmented media landscape may have allowed Putin to "amplify people’s existing political dispositions and feed conspiracy theorists" allowing Putin’s "ability to influence people to increase dramatically" says the senior Administration officialPutin plays this game with some natural advantages Cyberattacks are designed by nature to be secret and hard to trace For that reason even after the unclassified report is released skeptics–including defenders of WikiLeaks Trump and Russia–will be able to cast doubt on its conclusions In addition Putin is an autocrat who spent most of his early career in the KGB That means he can deploy all his government’s espionage tools in unison taking a "whole of government" approach to influence operations says Bob Anderson who headed the FBI’s Criminal Cyber Response and Services Branch until January 2016 "What he does better than every other leader is he leverages all of his assets" says AndersonWhich helps explain why even now the US government doesn’t know exactly how far inside the Russian government the hacking operation went Tracing the network of fake-news sites and troll farms to figure out if they were in concert with Putin’s operation back to Russia is an effort that is only getting under way Admits a senior Administration official: "We have not as a government yet exhaustively mapped out the wiring diagram of the Russian cyberinfrastructure designed to conduct hacking or propaganda operations against the West"But uncovering the links wouldn’t necessarily make Putin’s operation easier to fight By September the intelligence community had produced a list of "a few dozen" Russian entities involved in clandestine cyberoperations so that sanctions experts at the State Department could begin working out how to penalize Russia if the President wanted to take action Over time the US government narrowed the list to three entities the intelligence community had concluded were "indisputably" linked to Russian military intelligence (GRU) which the US spies believed was the main organization behind the influence operationRelatedCongress’Protecting Mueller Is Paramount’ Lawmakers Respond to Jeff Sessions’ FiringCongress’Protecting Mueller Is Paramount’ Lawmakers Respond to Jeff Sessions’ FiringIn late December the US publicly identified the three companies The largest–STLC Ltd Special Technology Center–is an independent company based in St Petersburg that has been identified in Russian state-backed news outlets as working directly for the intelligence services of Russia The US said STLC had provided signals intelligence and operational assistance to the GRU The second was a small technical firm called Zorsecurity that the US believed provided research and development to the GRU The last was another small firm called ANO PO KSI which the US had concluded provided training to the GRUBut holding Russia publicly accountable in a way that wouldn’t help Putin was hard First off it took the intelligence community weeks to figure out how to phrase a public accusation in a way that wouldn’t expose its own secret methods for tracking the hacking operation back to Moscow "They needed to figure out how they could describe things without revealing sources and methods" says the senior Administration officialAnd then there was the question of whether identifying the bad guys would do the Russians’ dirty work for them The FBI had already been accused of siding with Trump over Clinton by investigating her use of a private email server If one of Putin’s goals was to make the entire American democratic process look corrupt rigged and untrustworthy calling out a foreign meddling operation that was benefiting Trump with only four weeks to go before the vote wasn’t going to decrease accusations of politicizationObama’s top national-security advisers held several meetings to grapple with these issues the final two on Oct 3 and Oct 5 At first no one objected to publicly naming Russia as long as the spooks were comfortable with the language But at the second meeting FBI Director Jim Comey appeared to hesitate He said he wasn’t sure the statement was the right thing to do and worried it would look as if the Administration was putting its thumb on the scale of the election (A senior Administration official calls it ironic that Comey would express concern about politicizing investigations just three weeks before his bombshell letter to Congress that he was reopening the Clinton email investigation) But in the end Comey didn’t object strongly enough to prevent the identification of Russia on Oct 7As for actually punishing Russia for its behavior that was fraught too "There was general agreement with the President’s calculation that our taking action three or four weeks before the election beyond attribution would turn this into a massive political thing" says the senior Administration official And even if he had wanted to Obama didn’t have the power A year earlier Obama had issued an Executive Order allowing him to respond to cyberattacks on things like banks and electrical systems but it had no provision for attacks against an election or using cyber means to influence one It would take weeks to draft the language necessary to amend the order Democrats remain furious at Obama for the slow response; some say it cost their party the electionBy this time the analysts tracking the Russian operation for the CIA had concluded Putin wasn’t just trying to give Western democracy a black eye say senior intelligence and Administration officials he was also trying to help Trump win White House Russian operatives had penetrated the Republican National Committee and other Republican sites and the intelligence community concluded Moscow had damaging emails on Republicans say Administration and intelligence officials But the only leaks that came out were damaging to Democrats The only Republican whose hacked emails were released was Colin Powell and they said unflattering things about Clinton RNC officials dispute they were hackedSix weeks after Trump’s victory Obama’s principals finally approved punitive measures against Putin Announced on Dec 29 they were the toughest response the US had ever taken to a cyberevent Obama targeted both the FSB and the GRU and named four top officials in the GRU and their three allied companies Obama also shut down two Russian recreational facilities that were suspiciously close to US government facilities in Washington and New York and believed to be carrying out intelligence operations And he expelled 35 Russian intelligence officers operating under cover in the US In a background call with reporters Dec 29 a senior White House official wryly said in an apparent nod to Russian eavesdropping "And for the Russian speakers among you I will wish you s novym godom (Happy New Year)"RelatedMilitaryRussian Jet Caught on Video Flying Dangerously Close to an American PlaneMilitaryRussian Jet Caught on Video Flying Dangerously Close to an American PlaneMany critics found the sanctions mild And if the US was expecting a Russian backlash Putin had a surprise in store There is an established choreography for the exposure and penalization of espionage operations which Putin as a former KGB field agent and director of the FSB the agency that succeeded the KGB has as a kind of muscle memory at this point Penalties are responded to in kind while an equivalent number of spies are expelled And at first it looked as if that was the route Moscow would take too Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov announced on Russian national television that he had recommended expelling 35 alleged US spies and closing a Western school and warehouse in Moscow Kremlin spokesman Dmitri Peskov declared "There is no alternative here to the principle of reciprocity"Apparently there was The day after Obama’s announcement Putin said "While we reserve the right to take reciprocal measures we’re not going to downgrade ourselves" to petty spats "In our future steps on the way toward the restoration of Russia–United States relations we will proceed from the policy pursued by the [new] Administration" he said It was a bold maneuver based on a hope that in Trump Putin would find a different kind of American leaderWill he On paper Putin looks to be having a strong run He took the Crimea by force in 2014 and laid a claim to eastern Ukraine His surprise intervention in Syria not only propped up his weak ally Bashir Assad it also awed the Sunni powers like Saudi Arabia and made the US appear to be a second-class power in the region National-security officials expect him to try his cybermeddling in elections this year in France Germany and the NetherlandsDespite Putin’s recent success Russia remains vulnerable The country has been in a recession for two years and its recovery looks to be weak The success Putin had in cutting oil production belies an economy that is still reliant on natural resources which in turn makes it reliant on foreign markets in Europe where sanctions still bite And the military successes are less than they appear The Ukrainian

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger may be forced to wait before handing club record signing Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang his debut after the Gabon striker missed training on Friday due to illness Aubameyang

Wenger on Friday File image of Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger Getty Images Arsenal are hoping Aubameyang can reignite his prolific partnership with former Dortmund teammate Henrikh Mkhitaryan who also

Walcott could quickly come back to haunt the side he played with for over a decade when he returns to the Emirates in an Everton shirt Out-of-favour Chelsea striker Michy Batshuayi joined Dortmund to complete a striker swap triangle between the two London sides and the German giants "It was difficult because of course Dortmund needed a replacement" added Wenger on the drawn-out deal for Aubameyang "It was a cryptic deal because Giroud went to Chelsea and Batshuayi went to Dortmund That is why it was short in time and tense until the end" A frantic few days was rounded off when German playmaker Mesut Ozil ended speculation over his future by signing a new three-year deal on Thursday "Many predicted Ozil would not commit but it is good news for Arsenal" said Wenger "The fact you can keep a player of that calibre is good news" However Wenger admitted he didn’t get all he wished for in the January window as Arsenal’s leaky defence went unstrengthened despite persistent rumours of a bid
