Do What Works Now

first_imgThere may come a day when social selling replaces traditional methods of prospecting. That day, however, is not today. As things stand, it’s not tomorrow either.Much of what passes for “social selling” is research and the equivalent of an email. What the Charlatans and Snake Oil Salesman have laid down as the new gospel has overpromised and under-delivered, all the while using cold calling as a straw man. “Buy what we sell and you’ll never have to make another cold call as long as you live.”For brand building, there has never been a better toolkit—if you are a content creator. Digital has changed things: It’s a content creator’s world, and you are just living in it. For research, the social tools are simply unmatched. As a replacement for every other method of prospecting—including cold calling? Phooey.The question isn’t whether or not you are going to need to use other mediums in the future. The question is “What mediums should you be using now?” Right now, cold calling is still the fastest, most effective method for getting in front of your dream clients.Someday, you may be replaced by artificial intelligence. A chat bot may be your dream client’s trusted advisor. They could turn to it for advice on how to make complex, strategy, risky, strategic decisions. This is not happening right now. Right now, we are getting the weather, directions, and elementary instructions for our new products via ‘chat boy.’Certainly, we are going to use AI to augment our mental work, very much like we used electricity and machinery to augment physical labor. In fact, we have been leveraging the chip for quite some time now. The spreadsheet comes to mind, and now there are crude tools like Siri and Alexa, which gives us some idea about what the future is going to look like.Right now, you have to be your dream client’s trusted advisor, just like you have to be a rainmaker and create new opportunities.“What should you do now?” is a different question than “What you should do later?” Because at some point in the future commerce may include more interactions with artificial intelligence or something that looks a lot like a human being, does that mean that there is no need to do what is necessary to create value for your clients now?A very different future is coming; much faster than we are going to be able to properly contend with, but much slower than many believe. That future isn’t here yet, and while you should be aware of what’s coming, you still have to do what is necessary to succeed now, and you still use the tools that work now, including the greatest technological innovation in the known universe, the human brain.Be smart. Be practical. Do what works now. Do what works later when that’s what works.last_img read more

ESL Shipping Orders World’s First LNG-Fuelled Bulkers

first_imgzoom Finnish dry bulk shipping company ESL Shipping has revealed plans to order two large LNG-fuelled bulk carriers from Chinese shipbuilder Sinotrans & CSC Qingshan Shipyard.The two 25,600 DWT vessels are set to start operating in the Baltic Sea in early 2018. The total value of the investment is approximately EUR 60 million, ESL Shipping said. The ships will be designed by Finnish designer Deltamarin and will feature B.Delta26LNG design.The LNG-fuelled B.Delta26LNG bulk carrier is equipped with both dual-fuel main and auxiliary machinery. The ship has a type C LNG tank of approximately 400 m3 capacity.“These new, ice-class 1A ships will be the first LNG-fueled large bulk carriers in the world, representing the latest in technology and innovation. CO 2 emissions per ton of cargo transported will be reduced by more than 50% in comparison to present vessels,” the company said.“Deltamarin and ESL Shipping experts have worked together for two years to develop a ship concept, which takes a significant step by bringing commodity transportation into a new era of greener shipping. The trendsetting design is proof of the Finnish blue cleantech know-how and cooperation”, explains ESL Shipping Managing Director Mikki Koskinen.The ships will be used to implement the newly signed agreement between ESL Shipping Ltd and the steel company SSAB covering SSAB’s inbound raw material sea transports within the Baltic Sea and from the North Sea. The aggregated sea transport volume covered by the agreement is estimated to be 6–7 million tons annually.“ESL Shipping’s new customer agreement running for several years will secure growing freight volumes, and the new investments to be implemented will release old vessel stock for other transport needs. Besides their environmental benefits, the cost savings provided by the new technology will also allow better profitability,” says Aki Ojanen, Chairman of the Board of ESL Shipping and CEO of Aspo Group.The announcement comes just a day after ESL Shipping’s deal with AB Fortum Värme on biofuel transport.The agreement provides ESL Shipping with access to the renewable fuels transport market. The company’s transport operations to the new Värtan Energy Port in Stockholm are set to commence at the end of this year.“Fortum will take an important step when its Stockholm power plant switches to more sustainable energy generation and the biofuel-fired CHP plant is completed.  Biofuel is undeniably a good thing for sustainable development.  The transport agreement with ESL Shipping ensures ship transport around the year in the ever-changing conditions of the Baltic Sea, and large shipments are important in efficient operations,” says Trading Manager Kjell Nilsson of Fortum. ESL Shipping’s present fleet consists of 14 vessel units, and in 2014 the cargo volume carried was 12.1 million tons. The company’s main clients are the steel, power generation and chemical industries.last_img read more

Terminal StartUp Costs Put Pressure on ICTSIs Income

first_imgzoomImage Courtesy: ICTSI Manila-based International Container Terminal Services, Inc. (ICTSI) has seen its net income drop in the first half of 2018 due to the start-up costs of the new terminals in Papua New Guinea and Australia.The company’s income for the sic-month period ended June 30, 2018 decreased by 6 percent to USD 97.7 million, compared to the USD 103.6 million earned in the same period last year.Revenue reached USD 661.8 million, representing a rise of 10 percent over the USD 603.7 million reported in the first half of 2017. ICTSI handled consolidated volume of 4.71 million TEUs in the first six months of 2018, 4 percent more than the 4.54 million TEUs handled in the same period in 2017.The increase in volume was primarily due to the robust global trade activities particularly in the emerging markets, continuing volume growth at most terminals and the contribution of the new terminals in Lae and Motukea in Papua New Guinea, and Melbourne, Australia. Excluding the new terminals, volume increased by one percent.For the second quarter of 2018, ICTSI’s consolidated net income attributable to equity holders was up 3 percent from USD 51.9 million in 2017 to USD 53.6 million, while revenue increased 10 percent from USD 306.5 million to USD 336.4 million year-on-year.Total consolidated throughput for the quarter was five percent higher at 2.38 million TEUs compared to 2.27 million TEUs in 2017.last_img read more

Baltic Handball League F4 in Polva Estonia

The Belarussian club thus finished fourth and qualified to the final tournament ahead of Dragunas. Final Four  will be played on 12-13 April in the lovely Estonian city of Põlva.Meshkov went to the game with a one-point advantage over Dragunas, but it was destined to be a tight affair, as both teams knew what was on stake. Half-time ended 16-16, but the hosts found some additional gear for the second half and took a hugely important 30-26 win. Aleh Astrashapkin scored 7 goals for the winners, Darius Jasinskas was Dragunas’ best with 6 goals.Another “position deciding match” was played in Kehra, where hosts HC Kehra/Horizon Pulp&Paper suffered a narrow 27-28 (10-14) defeat in the hands of Celtnieks/LSPA Riga. A very tight match was decided at the end and it also meant that Latvian side moved past Kehra in the final table into sixth position. Jürgen Rooba scored 11 goals for Kehra, while Artis Kurmens recorded one less for Celtnieks/LSPA.Serviti, who on Saturday secured the regular season win, found out few hours before their match against Cocks Riihimäki that the Final Four will be played at their home ground. Head coach Kalmer Musting played without four national team players and suffered a second defeat of the season with Cocks winning 29-25 (13-13). Pavel Turaev from Serviti and Antti Rogenbaum from Cocks both scored 7 goals.A real goal fest took place in the Minsk derby, where last season’s BHL winners SKA hosted last-placed HC Vityaz. The latter was eager to earn first points of the season and put up a good fight, leading long times in the game. However, SKA – who rested most of their key players – managed to snatch a 39-37 (16-20) victory. Uladzislau Kulesh scored 14 goals for SKA, while Aliaksandr Padshyvalau was Vityaz’s best with 12 goals.FINAL STANDINGS: 4HC Meshkov Brest14806406:3891716 7HC Kehra/Horizon Pulp&Paper143110378:414-367 Baltic League Final Four (in Põlva, Estonia):12 April         17:00            Serviti Põlva – HC Meshkov Brest12 April         19:30            SKA Minsk – Cocks Riihimäki13 April         13:00            3rd place play-off13 April         15:30            FinalsourcE: http://www.baltichandball.net/ ← Previous Story LJUBOMIR VRANJES: Shot-Clock should be given a chance Next Story → GOLDEN LEAGUE: Slovenia beat France! 2SKA Minsk141202442:3994324 6Celtnieks/LSPA144010392:463-718 BALTICBALTIC HANDBAL LEAGUEBaltic Handball LeagueESTONIAhandball leaguePOLVA 8HC Vitjaz140014387:531-1440 read more

I thought I had met a coach who would stay at Napoli for a long time. At a certain point it became a question linked exclusively to money,” De Laurentiis was quoted by Il Napolista.“Suddenly, it was established by the media that his contract must be adjusted. So what is the value of an agreement just signed? We had already gone from 700 thousand euros to a million and a half.”“I also once heard him say that for his next contract, he wanted to get rich,” he added.“Sarri’s declarations of love for the city?

Toy Tuesday The Most Astronomical Spaceship Toys

first_img Toy Tuesday: Yo! It’s The Best ‘G.I. Joe’ ToysToy Tuesday: The Schwiftiest ‘Rick & Morty’ Toys Stay on target After a few decades out of the public eye, America is now all gung-ho to go back into space. We’ve got plans to land on Mars by the mid 2030s, we’re heading back to the Moon for the first time since the 1960s, and private companies like SpaceX are also pushing into the final frontier. What better way to celebrate our newly-discovered love of outer space than with some totally badass spaceship toys from both real life and our favorite geek franchises? Put a fleet together with these sweet deals.Space Battleship Yamato Model KitOne of America’s first exposures to anime came with Star Blazers, the translated version of Space Battleship Yamato that blew minds in 1979 syndication. The story of a sunken Japanese battleship transformed into a spacecraft to undertake a massive intergalactic journey to recover technology that will cleanse Earth’s ruined atmosphere, it was the first cartoon we ever saw that had an over-arching plotline. Bandai’s incredibly cool model of the Yamato is presented at 1/1000 scale and measures 26 inches long when completely assembled. It’s a tricky build with several built-in light features that look great when powered on.AdChoices广告Get it at Amazon.comMega Bloks U.S.S. EnterpriseMuch respect to LEGO for having the Star Wars license, but their biggest competitor has a few tricks up their sleeve as well. This Mega Bloks rendition of Star Trek‘s most famous spacecraft is a really sweet kit, with a bunch of custom printed pieces to simulate the Enterprise’s regalia and a pair of light-up LED nacelles for the warp drives. A pair of Mr. Spock and Captain Kirk microfigures and a commemorative plaque round out the set at a whopping 3098 pieces. And yes, it’s cross-compatible so you can do a mash-up with all your Star Wars sets?Get it at Amazon.comHistory Of American Space Flight Vehicle SetThe technological improvements that NASA has unleashed on society are uncountable — the challenge of leaving Earth’s atmosphere and having humans survive the journey was unlike anything humans had ever tried before. Revisit the last half-century of manned space flight with this 10-piece vehicle set that includes five rockets, starting with the Mercury Redstone and going up to the modern Shuttle Transport System. Also included are five other craft, including several NASA gliders and the Space Shuttle. You can build your own little Cape Canaveral with all of these babies.Get it at Amazon.comTransformable SDF-1 MacrossSpacecraft come in all sizes, from agile little fighters to massive interstellar cities. One of the coolest examples of the second category is the Super Dimension Fortress 1 from Macross. This enormous battleship is capable of bending the folds of space to travel vast distances in an instant, and was created from the ruins of a crashed alien ship that landed in the Pacific. Once launched, it carries a crew of 20,000 soldiers and officers and 76,000 civilians. This very sweet model is made from plastic and diecast metal, measures a little over nine inches long and is fully transformable from cruiser to robot and back.Get it at Amazon.comPlanet Express ReplicaThere are a bunch of great things about Futurama, the oddball sci-fi followup from Simpsons creator Matt Groening that was cancelled yet made a triumphant return, but one of our favorite things is the unique industrial design of the series’ ships and props. Their idea of the far future folds in bulbous, lumpy rockets from 50s science fiction and makes them look fresh and retro at the same time. This dope model of the Planet Express delivery ship from QMX has a magnetic display stand so you can move it around easily and measures a full foot in length.Get it at Amazon.comBattlestar Galactica Colonial ViperOne of the best-remembered science fiction shows of the modern era, Battlestar Galactica had a pretty limited selection of individual starcraft to choose from. Easily the most iconic, though, was the Viper — the single-pilot fighter craft flown by Starbuck and Apollo in the series. They’ve got a design that looks directly descended from Earth fighter jets, just with some tweaks and twists to make them space-ready. This kit from Moebius Models is a 1/32 replica modeled directly from the show, with moderate to easy instructions and optional landing gear.Get it at Amazon.comLego Millennium FalconNo collection of toy spaceships would be complete without one of the most epic Lego sets ever released. The massive Millennium Falcon set weighs in at a staggering 7,500 pieces and the end result, which will take you the better part of a day to put together, is very impressive. Lego has produced a couple Falcons in the years that they’ve had the Star Wars license, but this one’s not likely to be topped. Removable panels let you look inside the ship to see a number of scenes and compartments, and it comes with a quartet of minifigures for extended universe adventures.Get it at Amazon.comMass Effect Normandy ReplicaDespite the franchise — and BioWare — running into some rough seas, we still love Mass Effect. It’s the intergalactic epic we always wanted to live in, with fascinating aliens, sweet technology and lots of lore. The ship design was also well-considered, not seeming derivative of the greats in the genre while making sense and looking cool. Dark Horse put out a bunch of replica models of some of the most notable, but our favorite is the Normandy, the deep space frigate that Shepard took command of in the second game after the original Normandy was destroyed by the Collectors.Get it at Amazon.comSerenity PlushWhen we think about spaceships, “soft and cuddly” isn’t necessarily what comes to mind, but it’s 2019 and everything is possible. Snuggle up with the Serenity from Joss Whedon’s short-lived Firefly with this 18-inch stuffed replica. This is one of the most intensely detailed plushies we’ve ever seen, from the unique structure to the pair of shuttle bays in the sides that actually contain tiny stuffed spacecraft. What a world we live in.Get it at Amazon.comStar Wars Black Series Set Of 12 ShipsThe Star Wars franchise really leans into the concept of having spacecraft designed by radically different cultures at all stages of technological development. The ratty-looking Rebel fighters look lived in and loved, while the sleek Empire TIE craft are all clean and smooth. This set of 12 high-quality replicas really lets you take in the varied industrial design of the galaxy far, far away. The collection features the expected X-Wings and TIE ships, but also Boba Fett’s Slave 1, the Ghost, and Kylo Ren’s transport shuttle. All the pieces are in place for a massive dogfight.Get it at Amazon.comGuardians of the Galaxy Milano StarshipWhat’s the point in having a spaceship if it doesn’t come with a booming sound system? The Milano, the craft piloted by Peter “Star-Lord” Quill in the Guardians of the Galaxy movies, fuses Marvel’s cosmic style with down-home charm to create one of our favorite crafts of the modern era. This toy from Hasbro comes with lights, battle sounds, a quartet of firing missiles and a mini Quill to keep the whole crew in line. Sadly, it doesn’t also incorporate a cassette player to blast your mixtapes, but we’re sure you can work something out on Spotify.Get it at Amazon.comMore on Geek.com:The Most Powerful He-Man ToysThe Best Avengers ToysThe Most Fatal Mortal Kombat Toyslast_img read more

Siemens’ healthcare IT assets provide additional scale, R&D, an impressive client base, and knowledgeable and experienced associates who will help Cerner achieve our plans for the next decade.

Non-GAAP earnings are expected to exclude share-based compensation expense, one-time transaction costs, and acquisition-related amortization and deferred revenue adjustments.”We are excited to join with one of the most competitive companies in health IT today, and a recognized leader in innovation,” said John Glaser, Ph.D., CEO of the Health Services business unit of Siemens Healthcare. “Siemens cares deeply about its clients and believes Cerner is the best organization to fully support their health IT needs going forward. The knowledge and strength of our combined resources opens up great possibilities for future collaboration and development, which is exciting for all of us. And our clients will benefit from our alignment with a company that has such a strong historical and future commitment to rapid innovation.””We have tremendous respect for Siemens’ clients, their markets and their needs,” said Patterson. “We look forward to bringing them into the Cerner family, especially as they face increasingly complex clinical and regulatory environments, with mandates to improve quality and pressures to lower cost. We pride ourselves on helping clients navigate changing times so they can be leaders in providing care to their communities. We’re committed to supporting Siemens’ clients, and we want them to have confidence that we have the vision, scale and resources to help them achieve their plans for building their organizations’ futures.”Following the acquisition, support for Siemens Health Services’ core platforms will remain in place. Current implementations will continue, and Cerner plans to support and advance the Soarian platform for at least the next decade. Cerner will work with all clients to support their short-term and long-term business needs.Global AllianceCerner and Siemens will create a strategic alliance to jointly invest in innovative projects that integrate health IT with medical technologies for the purpose of enhancing workflows and improving clinical outcomes.
