Apple sells billionth song on iTunes Music Store

first_imgWEST BLOOMFIELD TOWNSHIP, Mich. (AP) — Alex Ostrovsky got more than he bargained for when downloading Coldplay’s “Speed of Sound” from the iTunes Music Store. The 16-year-old’s purchase was the one billionth song bought from the online music service that Apple Computer Inc. kicked off three years ago, charging 99 cents for most tracks. Ostrovsky’s selection was from Coldplay’s “X&Y” album. The youth, who lives in the Detroit suburb of West Bloomfield Township, was showered with prizes: a 20-inch iMac, 10 fifth-generation iPods and a $10,000 iTunes gift card. Apple also said it would establish a scholarship to the Juilliard School of Music in his name. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

In addition to more than 2 million songs from the major music companies and independent record labels, the iTunes Music Store also features music videos, Pixar and Disney short films, TV shows, podcasts and audiobooks.

South African flood relief driven by goodwill

first_imgAt least 123 people have died as a resultof the flooding in South Africa. Around20 000 people across the country havebeen affected.(Image: DWA)MEDIA CONTACTS• Mandla MathebulaDepartment of Social Development+27 12 312 7654 or +27 83 282 6133RELATED ARTICLES• South Africa reaches out to Haiti• Congo welcomes SA farmers• Uganda’s Mt Elgon gets a million trees• Better farming with mobilesNosimilo RamelaSouth African churches, community organisations, individuals and the private sector are pulling together to help the thousands of people affected by ongoing flooding in parts of the country.Precious Thabethe from Ivory Park, east of Johannesburg, is trying to restore order in her kitchen after flooding destroyed one of the room’s walls. She has put some plastic and corrugated iron in its place to cover the gaping hole.“The water comes fiercely from the east, that’s why this side of my house is destroyed,” she said. “I know it’s not safe for us to continue living here because we might get swept to our deaths by the water if it continues to rain, but right now we have nowhere to go.”Thabethe lives with her sister and three children in a modest three-roomed house. She saved up for six years before she was able to build her home, and feels she is not ready to let go just yet. “I’ve always wanted my kids to have a home and I built this place for them. I’m really not ready to just walk away from it.”She says the floods have destroyed most of her valuables, and they have been relying on help from her church and food donations to keep alive. “The church donated clothes for us and school uniforms for the kids – all our things got destroyed in the first week of January when the floods hit us.”The local supermarket has been giving out food parcels and various churches are collecting blankets and clothes for families who have lost their belongings. “Those of us whose homes have not been affected are also taking children into our homes, so they are cared for and can continue to attend school,” said MmeMaThato Mokoena, a member of the Methodist Church in the area.Counting the costThe Department of Social Development said the flood damage to infrastructure so far amounts to about R160-million (US$23-million). According to the department, 123 people have died as a result of the flooding and 20 000 people across the country have been affected. Most of the deaths have been reported in KwaZulu-Natal province, but fatalities have also occurred in Gauteng, North West, Limpopo, Eastern Cape and the Northern Cape.Thandeka Ciliza from Uthungulu in KwaZulu-Natal has lost two family members and her home in the devastating floods. “My brother and my nephew passed away while trying to cross a bridge two weeks ago. The water was too high and too strong, the bridge collapsed and swept them away. It’s the worst way to start the year. I have lost my family and my home.”Ciliza said a community organisation called Sakhile has helped her pick up the pieces. “Sakhile collected money from the community to help us bury our loved ones, and they have been providing food, clothes and shelter to us after our house was flooded.”Ciliza said she is still trying to rescue some of her possessions from the destroyed home. “I’ve been going back to collect whatever I can find from our old home. It hurts to see our home destroyed, but I am grateful for the help we have been receiving.”Banking on peopleAbsa, South Africa’s largest retail bank, has donated a R1-million ($142 061) to the government to provide urgent relief to communities affected by the floods.Maria Ramos, the group chief executive at Absa, said the bank hopes the donation will encourage other companies in the country to do the same. The bank has also created a relief fund for cash contributions from individuals and private organisations.“With wet weather conditions set to continue over the next few days over various parts of the country, the situation could become even more dire. The fact that certain farming communities have also been affected could further impact the country’s economy,” said Ramos.Mobile phone giant Vodacom has made R500 000 ($70 995) available for those affected and launched the Vodacom Red Alert initiative, which urges customers to donate money towards flood relief efforts.Small farmers sufferSmall-scale producers are among the hardest hit by the deluge. Many farmlands have been destroyed and stock lost due to burst river banks, with the knock-on effect of workers losing their jobs.Thabani Grootboom worked in a small farm in the Northern Cape, but is currently unemployed because the water-logged land cannot be worked. “There is no work at the farms. The damage is heartbreaking. Farmers are devastated and looking to government to help them recover. Hopefully, one day, they’ll be able to start farming again.”The Department of Agriculture recently warned farmers living along the Vaal and Orange Rivers to move their livestock to higher ground as more flooding was expected. Five flood gates have been opened at the Vaal Dam, one of the country’s largest constructed waterways.Government spokesperson Linda Page said they were closely monitoring other large dams in the country like the Bloemhof Dam in the North West, Gariep Dam in the Free State and the Vanderkloof Dam in the Northern Cape.Social Development Minister Bathibile Dlamini said her department was forming a task team comprising Tiger Brands, the South African Council of Churches and Gift of the Givers to deal with the aftermath.She said her department had already provided some aid to those affected, but raised concerns that it was not reaching victims soon enough. She encouraged all South Africans to join in and help.last_img read more

Losing Isn’t a Sales Style

first_img Essential Reading! Get my first book: The Only Sale Guide You’ll Ever Need “The USA Today bestseller by the star sales speaker and author of The Sales Blog that reveals how all salespeople can attain huge sales success through strategies backed by extensive research and experience.” Buy Now What does it mean to have a “style” of selling?Most of the time, the word “style” indicates an unwillingness to do what is necessary and instead do what is easier, something that can’t easily be called a “style” as much as ineffective choices. Other times, the person who suggests they have a “style” communicates the idea that they believe that the general principles and good practices don’t apply to them or their industry, often saying that their client or industry is so different that none of what works in sales would work for them.Not At All a StyleNot prospecting isn’t a “style” decision. Suggesting that your clients don’t want to speak to a salesperson unless and until they are interested in buying from them is to believe that those same clients already know what they don’t know and are already making the right decision in every area of their business. Waiting like a rain barrel isn’t a style.Not scheduling meetings because prospects don’t like to meet with salespeople and using email as your primary sales communication channel isn’t a “style,” it’s mostly a weak and ineffective decision. Why would someone who won’t even meet with you decide to buy from you?Not possessing enough business acumen to command a conversation with the contacts who make decisions around your category isn’t a “style.” It’s an inability to create value for your clients. Maybe it is your style to start with eight slides that pitch your company’s history, your client’s logos, and your solutions, but that style is how you prove you are selling a commodity and you believe you lack the depth to consult.Might Be a StyleIf by “style” you mean being authentic, that might be another thing. Maybe you have a great sense of humor, and your ability to bring levity to the sales conversations compels your clients to prefer to work with you.Maybe “style” means that you have deep insights and are excellent at creating a conversation around change that causes people to explore doing something different. Perhaps your style is serious in a vertical where serious works.Maybe you have fast rapport skills, and your ability to connect is what allows you to help people explore new ideas because they immediately trust you (I have a sister who has this ability and uses it to great effect, while also being directive and consultative).What is not a style is refusing to accept reality or the general principles of good salesmanship. If what you do doesn’t work, change it.last_img read more

As bulls have a field day, farmers scurry to save their crops in U.P.

first_imgFarmer Govind Sharma was facing a dharam sankat (moral dilemma). Stray cattle were eating up his valuable crops. But the farmer’s religious beliefs forbade him from using force to drive them out. After much thought, he decided to walk the middle path: catch the bovines and keep them under custody.Over the past year, he has caught three stray bulls and put them on a leash outside his house in Gadhi Karmali village in Unnao, Uttar Pradesh. One bull had injured at least four people in the village.Bulls are generally not used for farming. Mr. Sharma already has a pair of bullocks that he deploys on his 2.5 bigha farm, but he now has to incur an additional cost of over ₹1,500 per month to feed the three bulls. Yet, despite the financial burden, he feels he has a moral responsibility to take care of them.“God is watching. I put the rope around them, so it is my duty to not let them starve,” said Mr. Sharma. He also has to feed a 10-member family.And the predicament is not his alone. There are at least eight stray bulls in the custody of the villagers. But dozens of other bulls, cows and calves roam free, posing a threat to the crops. In some cases, they also attack farmers.Lodh farmer Ram Singh recently received 24 stitches on his lower back after a bull gored him in his field. “Six persons have been attacked in just the past four days. The male calf is particularly aggressive,” said Guru Prasad Sahu, who owns three bighas of land.No more fairsStray cattle entering fields, and eating away and trampling on crops is common in U.P., but villagers claim the menace got worse after the BJP government came to power in 2017. They claim that due to the fear of cow vigilantes, and shutting down of illegal slaughterhouses by the Yogi Adityanath government, slaughtering of cows and bulls has stopped. This has also resulted in the collapse of local cattle markets. Several cattle fairs have not been held since the BJP came to power.Slaughtering of cows has been banned in U.P. for several decades and the crackdown on abattoirs only concerns buffaloes and goats.But Ramayan Singh, a marginal farmer, claims that under the previous governments, police allowed cows to be slaughtered illegally for a bribe. “Modi and Yogi have brought an end to all that. We support it. But the issue of stray cattle must also be dealt with,” he pointed out.Farmers say that after the BJP came to power in the State, and at the Centre, they have found it difficult to sell their old cattle. They claim this is one reason for the increase in the stray cattle population. If one is unable to sell an old animal or get the right price for it, it is eventually left to fend for itself. Such bovines wander into farms.On the other hand, meat traders say that there is increased stray cattle menace because the sale of bulls and bullocks to other States like West Bengal, where slaughter is legal, has come to a halt after the BJP came to power.They also attribute the slump in cattle trade to the fear of cow vigilantes who disrupt transport of cattle even if the carriers possess valid documents. After assuming power, the Adityanath government decided to invoke the NSA and Gangsters Act against those slaughtering cows and smuggling the animal.Poor salesShakeel Qureshi, U.P. vice-president of the All India Jamiatul Quresh, said farmers were finding it difficult to dispose of their cattle. “States like Maharashtra, where slaughter of bulls and bullocks was allowed earlier, banned it after the BJP came to power. In times of farm distress, farmers rely heavily on animal-based income but with no avenues to sell, they dump them,” Mr. Qureshi said.Chief Veterinary Officer of Unnao, P.K Singh, dismissed the view that the cattle menace had any connection with the ban on slaughterhouses. Slaughtering of cow progeny has been banned in U.P. for decades, he said.The real problem is that the practice of abandoning cattle, ‘Anna Pratha,’ [mainly during summer] has spread to the rest of the State from Bundelkhand. “After people have milked a cow, they abandon it,” Mr. Singh said. He also said that the 2012 cattle census, the last one available, in the State had indicated a decreasing trend in population of cows in comparison to 2007.‘Anna Pratha’ is an age-old tradition in Bundelkhand where farmers let loose their cattle, especially unproductive and pregnant cows, to graze freely. The animals raid fields in search of food and water, causing damage to other peasants, who are already reeling under severe losses and are forced to keep desperate vigils all night to save whatever remains in their fields.Many villagers have put up fences or barricaded their fields. In Sandoli, Unnao, Santram and his grandmother keep a watch against roaming cattle from a machan (a platform in a tree) over their four-bigha field at night, armed with sticks and an axe.Mr. Santram agrees that the crackdown on slaughterhouses has aggravated the problem, but says farmers have also stopped using bullocks in farms and shifted to tractors.State Animal Husbandry Minister S.P. Singh Baghel has said that the number of stray cattle heads have increased across the State because it has strictly implemented anti-cow slaughter laws and shut down illegal slaughterhouses.On March 13, responding to a question by an SP MLA, Mr. Baghel said in the Assembly that the “sudden flood” of stray cattle population was visible now as the gestation period of a cow was 10 months while the BJP government had completed a year.  “Now can you  imagine at what rate were cows being slaughtered in the State under your rule,” Mr. Baghel asked.Scheme to tackle menaceTo specifically tackle the menace of bulls, the government is running a “Sexed Sorted Semen” scheme based on American and Japanese technology  Under the pilot project, chances of cows delivering a female calf are as high as 90-95%. The project has started in three districts so far, Etawah, Lakhimpur Kheri and Barabanki, and according to Mr. Baghel, recent results have been encouraging.Out of 240 cattle heads born under the experiment, 220 were cows, a hit rate of 94%. While veterinary officials say that the scheme is costly, the government plans to implement it in other districts as well. A sum of ₹49.5 crore has been alloted for the scheme in the current budget. No data is available for the stray cattle but according to the Animal Husbandry Department, U.P. has around two crore cows and cow progeny.In a bid to care for stray cattle, the BJP government has allocated ₹98.50 crore under the Kanha Gaushala Evam Beshahara Pashu Aashray Yojna, to set up shelter homes for them.last_img read more

Job Creation, Inclusive Growth High on UNWTO Conference Agenda

first_imgStory Highlights Job creation and inclusive growth are high on the agenda of the United Nations World Tourism Organization’s (UNWTO) global conference, being held from November 27 to 29 at the Montego Bay Convention Centre in St James. The Minister contended, however, that it is imperative that the formula for inclusive growth be further improved to “enable the development of human capital so that more of the creativity of the Jamaican people is reflected in the output of tourism and the development of the experiences that visitors pay for”. Job creation and inclusive growth are high on the agenda of the United Nations World Tourism Organization’s (UNWTO) global conference, being held from November 27 to 29 at the Montego Bay Convention Centre in St James.Tourism Minister, Hon. Edmund Bartlett, told JIS News that this focus is of particular importance to countries like Jamaica, which depend highly on the hospitality industry.“We currently have 106,000 jobs directly from tourism and an indirect amount of nearly 300,000, which means one in five of the workers in Jamaica is (involved in) tourism directly or indirectly,” he noted.The Minister contended, however, that it is imperative that the formula for inclusive growth be further improved to “enable the development of human capital so that more of the creativity of the Jamaican people is reflected in the output of tourism and the development of the experiences that visitors pay for”.Mr. Bartlett said the conference will also facilitate discussions on how tourism can be more impactful in the economies of countries that are recipients of visitors from across the world.“The fact is tourism has become the fastest growing economic activity globally. It currently employs 293 million people and represents 10 per cent of global gross domestic product (GDP). That indicates that one in 10 workers of the world is employed in tourism directly or indirectly,” the Minister outlined.He added that the sector generates US$7.6 trillion globally, pointing out that in 2016, some 1.2 billion people travelled to different parts of the world and spent US$1.3 trillion in pursuit of diverse experiences.Mr. Bartlett further cited that some 79 countries currently have a tourism dependence ratio of 10 per cent and more, adding that of these, the top 13 globally are in the Caribbean.“So a conference in the frame of how do we sustain economic growth, create jobs and have inclusion is vital. We are bringing the universities together for ideas. We will (also) bring the policymakers, the UNWTO and all of those who can (formulate) policies that determine the framework within which these things can happen. Then we will bring the non-governmental organizations, which are a key part of civil society and enabling community development and activity.“So it is the perfect mix and out of all of these discussions will come a framework that will help to guide the future development of tourism in the world,” he further stated.The conference is intended to foster a forum for governments, investors, donors and multinational organisations to exchange ideas on development and investment opportunities; share proven best practices for developing public-private partnerships (PPP) in tourism; and work with governments to prepare innovative tourism PPP investment opportunities that prioritise sustainability, economic inclusion and poverty alleviation.Additionally, it will facilitate discussions on social inclusiveness, employment and poverty-reduction strategies that have been successfully initiated by various entities.The event, which will be attended by some 157 tourism ministers and Government officials from across the world, will see participants engaging in plenary sessions and workshops on a range of industry-relevant topics. These include development assistance and investment partnership opportunities.The conference is being jointly hosted by the UNWTO, Government of Jamaica, World Bank Group and Inter-American Development Bank.Stakeholder partners include the Caribbean Tourism Organization; Caribbean Hotel and Tourism Association; private international development company, Chemonics International; and George Washington University in the United States. Tourism Minister, Hon. Edmund Bartlett, told JIS News that this focus is of particular importance to countries like Jamaica, which depend highly on the hospitality industry.last_img read more
