What can salespeople do to succeed in this “new world?”Over and over Jill Konrath works alongside sales teams where the training that is being implemented is years behind where the actual consumer attitudes and responses are at. Salespeople today, and especially those experienced pros who are training their teams, are using outdated techniques that simply don’t work. It’s a recipe for sales failure that nobody wants to see happen in their organization. On this episode Jill shares the kinds of things that need to change if sales leaders are going to continue to be leaders in the modern era and gives her advice for how sales teams can work together to reach higher levels of success.How important is social media for today’s salesperson?Many sales pros don’t get social media. They feel that it’s a waste of time to share things on Twitter or Facebook, afterall – who wants to know what they had for lunch? Jill Konrath says that comments like that reveal that these salespeople are missing the point of social media. It’s not about sharing what you had for lunch, it’s letting people get to know you – and in turn, getting to know them on a deeper level. THAT is the stuff successful sales careers are made of and social media makes it easier than ever if you’re willing to take the time to use the tools wisely.

Toronto army reservist faces seven counts of voyeurism

first_imgOTTAWA – The Canadian military has laid seven charges of voyeurism against a full-time army reservist in Toronto.A military spokesman says the charges against Master Warrant Officer Mardie Reyes come after someone allegedly videorecorded fellow service members in secret at two local armouries.The recordings were purportedly made in a women’s washroom at Denison Armoury, and in a changing room at Moss Park Armoury, between May 2012 and June 2016.That is when the recording device was found, sparking an investigation.Officials say Reyes is a 26-year military veteran who deployed twice to Afghanistan and once to the Philippines in November 2013 to help with relief efforts following Typhoon Haiyan.The case is being handled through the military justice system, including a potential court martial.Defence chief Gen. Jonathan Vance has promised a zero-tolerance approach to sexual misconduct in the ranks, including possible release for those who are found guilty of such behaviour.last_img read more

Feds begin payouts to informants for offshore tax intelligence

first_imgOTTAWA — The federal government has begun making payments to secret informants for intelligence that has so far brought in more than $19 million from offshore tax evaders.Newly released documents say the Canada Revenue Agency issued the first payments under its offshore tax informant program between April 2018 and the end of March this year.The program launched five years ago as part of the government’s efforts against international tax evasion.The revenue agency says it cannot disclose the specific amounts paid to informants, as that data could potentially reveal their identities.However, under the program, the reward is between five and 15 per cent of the federal tax collected in cases where the amount assessed and recouped exceeds $100,000.The new figures were recently presented to the House of Commons in response to written questions from New Democrat MP Pierre-Luc Dusseault.The Canadian Presslast_img read more

Eerie Easter

first_imgNearly a decade after the 26-year long civil war in Sri Lanka came to a long-awaited close, the people of the island nation were crudely jolted with a series of coordinated attacks on churches and luxury hotels on Easter Sunday. Other nationals killed in the dastardly attack include Indians, Japanese and of USA. In solidarity with Sri Lanka, other nations and world leaders extended their condolences the grieving nation. On a day of worship and cheer, memories of the civil war were wrenched back in a flash. Faraz Shauketaly, a prominent journalist, spoke about the Sri Lanka Civil War and its connection to Sunday’s attack, reiterating that in Sri Lanka, the ethnic conflict began approximately 40 years ago and finished 10 years ago. The 3-decade long war was perpetrated by mainly a group of terrorists who claimed to want independence in the northern part of Sri Lanka, is a tiny island, about 240 miles long and 140 miles wide. May 18, 2019, will mark the 10-year anniversary of the end of the nation’s civil war fought between the Sri Lanka government and its Sinhala Buddhist majority and the Tamil Tigers minority ethnic group. Warning of more attacks in Sri Lanka, US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo commented that the United States will keep fighting “radical Islamic terror” in the wake of the Sri Lanka attacks. This comment very easily labels the mishap with a colour and a community that is otherwise vulnerable on the global stage. These attacks come in line with notorious attacks on churches, the latest being the fire that ravaged Notre Dame. The leaders of Sri Lanka, however, showed remarkable grit and insisted that the national suffering must not become a political game.last_img read more

DR of Congo UN keeps up efforts to revive peace talks over

According to a UN spokesperson in New York, no fighting was reported in Bunia today, although the situation remains unstable. The UN Organization Mission in the DRC (MONUC) continues its efforts to re-start negotiations between the different militia groups that have been locked in a deadly battle for control of the town, which lies in the DRC’s gold- and mineral-rich Ituri province. “No progress has been reported yet,” Hua Jiang said at a press briefing.At the diplomatic level, in the DRC capital of Kinshasa, UN Under-Secretary-General for Peacekeeping Operations Jean-Marie Guéhenno is meeting again with President Joseph Kabila to underline the importance of restraint by all sides in Ituri, the spokesperson said.Despite tightened security at camps for internally displaced persons (IDPs) in Bunia, continuing incidents of theft and ongoing human rights violations remain a major concern, according to Ms. Jiang. “It was also reported that a 12-year-old girl was raped in front of her family,” she added.In the meantime, general humanitarian activity continues, with efforts to provide humanitarian services to IDPs in the localities surrounding Bunia. Ms. Jiang said that the Uruguayan battalion, numbering some 720 troops and acting under a peacekeeping mandate, has provided humanitarian help, working closely with humanitarian actors, as well as protected the lives of thousands of IDPs on the UN premises. read more

UN agency launches 18 million appeal for Palestinians affected by Israeli wall

The proposals, by the UN Development Programme (UNDP) Programme of Assistance to the Palestinian people, seek to generate over 200,000 employment opportunities, and include land reclamation projects, new agricultural roads and improved water infrastructure. They also aim to revamp health care and education and build the capacity of the municipalities and village councils.”Immediate action is required to meet the needs of those affected by the construction of this barrier,” Timothy Rothermel, the Special Representative of UNDP in Jerusalem, said. “After consulting numerous community leaders and farmers who lost their land in the various municipalities, UNDP has developed a comprehensive emergency action plan.”Israel began building the barrier a year ago with a complex series of walls, barriers, trenches, and fences within the occupied West Bank, carrying out what it said, was a security operation to keep out suicide bombers. The wall has encircled and isolated many Palestinian cities and villages. When completed, this first phase will cut across roads and water networks and will form a barrier between Palestinians living on each side and their agricultural lands, water wells, urban markets and public services.The impact on agriculture is of particular concern in the governorates of Jenin, Tulkarm and Qalqilya, where the first phase is being constructed. The wall could severely constrain the delivery of basic social services and commercial exchange, especially the movements of agricultural products, Palestinian officials have said.Meanwhile, the UN Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees (UNRWA) today warmly welcomed news that the United States will pledge up to $26 million for that agency’s current emergency appeal, the largest single donation by any Government to UNRWA emergency appeals since they were launched three years ago.”I am delighted by this strong vote of confidence in the Agency from the Bush Administration,” Commissioner-General Peter Hansen said in a news release. The US Government has provided more than $107 million to UNRWA since October 2000, or 36 per cent of the total amount the Agency has received since then.But the agency, set up after the 1948 Arab-Israeli conflict to carry out direct relief and works programmes for Palestine refugees, warned that it remained concerned about under-funding of its appeals, with $102.9 million required for the current six-month period ending this December, and less than $3 million pledged prior to the US announcement. Unless substantial new pledges are confirmed in the next two months, further cutbacks, resulting in layoffs and reductions in food distribution, remain a real likelihood, it added. read more

Ohio State backup quarterback battle Cardale Jones with early edge on JT

Then-redshirt-freshman Cardale Jones (12) rushes the ball during a game against Florida A&M Sept. 21 at Ohio Stadiun. OSU won, 76-0.Credit: Shelby Lum / Photo editorThe starting quarterback position at Ohio State is set in stone.Senior Braxton Miller ­— and his two, back-to-back Chicago Tribune Silver Footballs for Big Ten Most Valuable Player honors — has that spot locked up.But with fan favorite and coach-on-the-field Kenny Guiton out of eligibility and looking to get a shot in the NFL, the player who will fill the backup slot behind Miller is a glaring question mark during spring practice.OSU coach Urban Meyer said last week the competition has picked up between redshirt-sophomore Cardale Jones and redshirt-freshman J.T. Barrett, but said Jones has the early edge and has been running with the first team offense while Miller rehabs from shoulder surgery.Offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach Tom Herman echoed that sentiment Tuesday after practice.“Cardale’s done a great job,” Herman said. “He’s playing like a quarterback at Ohio State should, but through the nine practices, we just need for those guys to play to their strengths.”Barrett and Jones carry entirely different body types — Barrett is just 6 feet 1 inches tall and is listed at 225 pounds, while Jones towers above the other quarterbacks on roster at 6 feet 5 inches and is a solid 250 pounds. Jones’ strong arm is his identity, while Barrett is more a finesse player who focuses on getting the ball to his receivers on time. Getting each player to understand that, Herman said, is half the battle.“I tell those two guys a lot of the time, ‘Just be you.’ Their strengths are so different,” Herman said. “I tell J.T., you get paid — and he gets paid a scholarship, that’s what I’m talking about — to make great decisions, to get the ball out of your hands and be accurate. You’re not going to grow (physically) … Cardale is 6 foot 5 and 250 pounds and can throw it through that wall.”The only quarterback on the roster with game experience other than Miller is Jones, who played in three games of mop-up duty last season after the outcome of those games had already been decided in favor of the Buckeyes.Barrett redshirted last season while recovering from a torn ACL and meniscus that ended his senior season at Rider High School in Wichita Falls, Texas.The opportunity to further develop each player with Miller out is both a good and bad thing, Herman said. The good: each young guy gets an opportunity to get snaps with the first team offense. The bad: Miller is missing out on vital practice time in his own progression as a player.“Is it frustrating? Yes,” Herman said of not being able to fully work with Miller. “But I think if you dwell on what you can’t do with him, you forget or maybe you don’t do justice to the things that we’re trying to do with him.”Among those things are having a camera on his hat as Miller watches plays unfold in practice, and reviewing them with Herman and Meyer at the end of the day to learn more about what the defensive unit is doing.“Braxton stands behind (the other quarterbacks) and gets all the mental reps like Kenny Guiton used to last year,” Meyer said after practice March 18.That’s as important a step as any, Herman said.“Right now I can tell in the meetings he’s more engaged,” Herman said of Miller. “And I’ll say this again. Braxton, in my opinion, has always been very football smart. You don’t get to do the things you do on a football field without understanding what’s going on.”But with how injury-prone OSU’s starter was last year — Miller sprained his MCL early in OSU’s 42-7 win against San Diego State Sept. 7 and missed the next two games, and also missed time in the team’s Orange Bowl loss to Clemson — having a solid backup like Guiton is vital.While Jones has impressed enough to earn the majority of the first-team reps, he was inaccurate Saturday in the first team scrimmage of the spring — one the defense won.“It was a ‘This is my first scrimmage on a winner-loser day, running as quarterback with the first offense at the Ohio State University and I’m nervous as hell,’” Herman said on Jones’ performance. “And it showed.”But a day like that is all part of the maturation process, Herman said, and isn’t symbolic of what either man has done so far in spring practice.“What they showed on Saturday was not indicative of the previous four practices or (Tuesday’s) practice,” Herman said. “Everything about spring ball is a learning experience. And these guys are doing that each and every rep they take.”The Buckeyes are set to take on Navy in their first game of the season Aug. 30 at M&T Bank Stadium in Baltimore. Kickoff is set for noon. read more

Handheld Group further grows its market coverage for rugged PDAs and mobile

first_imgThe Handheld Group, a manufacturer of rugged PDAs and mobile devices, strengthens its presence in the important German, Austrian and Swiss markets with the acquisition of the hardware division of its distribution partner Latschbacher. Handheld says it is the fastest growing maker of rugged handheld devices in the world, rapidly gaining market share for its smartly designed and cutting edge rugged notebooks, laptops and PDAs. Handheld has acquired TimbaTec, a supplier of rugged mobile computers in Germany, Austria and Switzerland from Latschbacher. Latschbacher is a supplier of computers, software and RFID tagging equipment for the forest industry, and Handheld’s existing distribution partner in Germany, Austria and Switzerland. Handheld will turn TimbaTec into two new companies, Handheld Germany and Handheld Swiss, which both will be fully owned by Handheld Group. TimbaTec’s annual revenues are today some $4 million. Handheld has gained market share for its range of smartly designed and cutting edge rugged notebooks, laptops and PDAs eight years running and was recently named as one of the 100 most innovative technology companies in the world. The new offices in Germany and Switzerland will be number seven and eight alongside the group’s existing offices in Sweden (headquarters), Finland, the Netherlands, Italy, Australia and the USA.The mining industry uses handheld computers to handle timekeeping, vehicle tracking, maintenance, supplies deliveries and real-time communication with the back office. The advantages over a paper-based system are obvious: data collectors greatly streamline job functions, data errors are reduced and labour costs are minimised.Mining takes place in harsh environment, so the computer solution has to be tough enough to withstand challenges like vibrations, dust, moisture and temperature fluctuations.  Some Handheld products that are well suitable for the mining and drilling business: Nautiz X7, Algiz 7, Algiz XRW, Nomad.“This is a strategically very important acquisition for the Handheld Group”, said Jerker Hellström, CEO of Handheld Group. “The German speaking markets are the largest and most important markets for rugged mobile computers in Europe, and we believe that we can accelerate our growth in Central Europe by applying our successful and proven business and marketing models to these two new subsidiaries.”“With TimbaTec we get a very competent team, and a valuable network of existing clients right from the start. TimbaTec has been providing Central European customers with rugged solutions for many years, and their commitment to their customers is in line with our core values.”Handheld Germany will be managed by Helmut Feurhuber and Handheld Swiss will have Andreas Hitz at the helm. As a result of the acquisition, Handheld will have local service centres in Germany and Switzerland.last_img read more

And he has made an attempt to reach out,” said Democrat John Larson of Connecticut.But the devil is in the details. https://jrnl.ie/3264464 By AFP Short URL 18,222 Views Wednesday 1 Mar 2017, 7:04 AM Source: ABC News/YouTubeAccording to a CNN instant poll, 57% of Americans who tuned in saying they had a very positive reaction to the speech.Pressing his domestic agenda – and pleasing mainstream Republicans who reluctantly embraced him –Trump promised to provide “massive” tax relief for the American middle class and to repeal his predecessor’s landmark Obamacare health reform.“When you get into a job and you do it for a while you become better at it, and I think he’s improving every single day,” said House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy.Balancing actThe billionaire’s populist economic message was crucial in his November victory over Democrat Hillary Clinton — helping him sway voters in crucial Rust Belt states Michigan, Ohio and Pennsylvania.Now his challenge is translating that into tangible policy steps and legislative achievements.He outlined plans for rebuilding America’s creaking infrastructure and for high-stakes tax and healthcare reform.But on all three issues, Trump faces a difficult balancing act with fellow Republicans, who control both the Senate and House of Representatives.To succeed, Trump – the consummate political outsider – may have to embrace Washington deal-making.Conservatives are desperate to pull Obamacare out by its roots, but party pragmatists are wary of dismantling a system that helped some 20 million Americans obtain health insurance.Tensions between the executive branch and the Republican-led Congress are also simmering over Trump’s 2018 budget proposal.Trump wants to hike defense spending by $54 billion, offsetting with cuts in foreign assistance and other non-military spending.On all these issues Trump offered little detail about how to meet his promises worsening the country’s nearly $20 trillion national debt.“This plan doesn’t add up. A third-grade math student can see that you’re going to blow a huge hole in the deficit if you do the things the president is talking about,” Democratic Senator Chris Van Hollen told AFP.© – AFP 2017Read: Eight-year-old Texas girl shot dead minutes after surviving traffic accidentRead: UK judge blasts ‘shambolic’ and ‘cowardly’ Tunisian police at terror attack inquest Mar 1st 2017, 7:04 AM “Lincoln was right”: Trump offers restrained version of priorities in landmark address to Congress He proposed introducing an Australian-style merit-based system of immigration to reduce the flow of unskilled workers. Share95 Tweet Email1 Trump flanked by Vice President Mike Pence and Speaker Paul Ryan. Source: Alex BrandonPRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP pledged a “renewal of the American spirit” last night, as he tempered his most inflammatory rhetoric while fleshing out his nationalist agenda during a landmark speech to Congress.Transposing hardline campaign promises into a presidential key, Trump offered the most restrained and detailed explanation yet of his America-first world view.He criticised threats against Jewish community centres and condemned the seemingly racially-motivated killing of an Indian immigrant, answering calls for him to speak out.And although the 70-year-old president again promised a hard line on illegal immigration, he couched those policies in economic rather than xenophobic terms, winning sustained applause from the Republican dominated Congress.“By finally enforcing our immigration laws, we will raise wages, help the unemployed, save billions and billions of dollars, and make our communities safer for everyone,” he said.Putting some policy meat on the bones, he proposed introducing an Australian-style merit-based system to reduce the flow of unskilled workers – and held out the prospect of a bipartisan compromise with Democrats on root-and-branch immigration reform.Trump arrived to deliver his maiden address before a chamber filled with lawmakers, Supreme Court Justices, ambassadors and generals, facing historically low approval ratings and embroiled in multiple crises.Hailing what he called a “new national pride” sweeping the country, he sought to use the pomp of the occasion and the presidential pulpit to reclaim authority and course correct after 40 difficult days.Discussing trade, Trump even enlisted the help of American icon Abraham Lincoln, echoing what the first Republican president described as “protective policy”.“Lincoln was right – and it is time we heeded his words,” Trump said. “I am not going to let America and its great companies and workers, be taken advantage of anymore.”Looking abroad, Trump softened his criticism of NATO partners and vowed to work with allies in the Muslim world.But he offered no apologies for emphasising a world order centred on the nation state.“My job is not to represent the world. My job is to represent the United States of America,” he said. Tweet thisShare on FacebookEmail this articlelast_img read more

This edition of the quadrennial tournament is unique for variety of reasons. This is the fifth time this event is being hosted by England, the country where the first three editions were played. It is after a gap of 20 years that this biggest festival of cricket returns to its original abodeThe World Cup starts off on May 30 at The Oval with the hosts, who have never won the trophy despite playing the Final three times, taking on South Africa, the perennial chokers in ICC events. Defending Champions Australia start their campaign on June 1 against Afghanistan while India, two-time winners, play their first match on June 5 against South Africa.ICC 2019 World Cup – FormatThe format that will be used in the 2019 edition has been employed only once before – in 1992. It sees every participating nation playing every other and the four top teams in the points table at the end of the round-robin fixtures advancing to the semi-finals.While many have expressed their disappointment with the exclusion of minnows from the event – something that would reduce the chances of an upset and take away the opportunity of exposure to these minor nations – this format ensures that there would be hardly any predictable contests. Unlike the previous editions, the tournament would be in top gear right from the beginning as there are no easy contests for the sides.
