Tags:#Crypto#cryptocurrencies#Cryptocurrency#fraud Why is Bitcoin Soaring? Cryptocurrency and blockchain are revolutionary technologies, but being so far ahead of the curve comes with consequences. With few precedents to learn from and regulatory frameworks still in their infancy, the crypto space has attracted its share of shrewd opportunists whose scams — such as the infamous pump-and-dump schemes — have grabbed international headlines.Tech giants like Facebook and Google recently placed a ban on crypto ads to combat the spread of shady coin offerings, and U.S. regulators like the Commodity Futures Trading Commission and the Securities and Exchange Commission are investigating cryptocurrencies for price manipulation and other forms of fraud.Pump-and-dump schemes aren’t new — nor are they limited to the cryptocurrency space (just ask Jordan Belfort). That said, the growing popularity of blockchain technology, combined with a lack of general public understanding, make the space a breeding ground for these types of ploys. Meanwhile, social media channels like Twitter, Telegram, and Reddit add a new level of speed and scale to the process.So how do they work? Those who are in on the pump-and-dump scheme form groups, often with thousands of others, and overhype the trading volume of a coin. Then, once people are willing to buy in at grossly inflated prices, the perpetrators dump their holdings for a massive profit.It’s becoming so commonplace that the SEC created the aptly-named HoweyCoins website to help investors spot signs of a crypto scheme. Not long ago, we also saw the crypto community take a hard line against Bancor’s Twitter giveaway, accusing it of normalizing the language and promotional techniques commonly abused by scammers.The pressure is on for cryptocurrencies to prove their legitimacy, and I don’t blame people for being wary of them. But I also know that for every scam, there are countless examples of cryptocurrency and blockchain technology being used responsibly to create opportunities, grow economies, and do good in the world. We need to remember that cryptocurrency fraud is the exception, not the rule.Several Kinds of Crypto ScamsFor better or worse, cryptocurrency has become known as a get-rich-quick industry — one where people enter the market without much awareness of the technology or its unique implications.We saw the price of Bitcoin skyrocket to unprecedented levels in late 2017 — which new research asserts was driven by furtive actions of a few big players, rather than real investor demand. Regardless, the spike resulted in a rush of new currencies, wallets, and exchanges, many of which were poorly planned at best and outright fraudulent at worst.And of course, legitimate services attract fake copycats. For instance, an app posing as MyEtherWallet, one of the most popular services for storing Ethereum and other coins, rose to the top of Apple’s App Store charts in December 2017 before it was revealed to be a scam. Although these sorts of scams have nothing to do specifically with cryptocurrency or blockchain and are basically akin to phishing, they still create a widespread negative perception of cryptocurrency as a whole.But just because scams may have dominated the news cycle for a while doesn’t mean investing in cryptocurrency is a fool’s errand. The same principles of sound investing — tracking trends, diversifying, and weathering volatility — apply to crypto. And there’s no replacement for due diligence before putting your money into a project, regardless of whether it’s on the blockchain.That said, with so many investors losing money to market manipulation fraud, it was only a matter of time before regulators stepped in.Cracking DownAlthough government policy has struggled to keep pace with cryptocurrency, we’ve gotten to a point where regulators are stepping in and taking highly punitive action against pump-and-dump schemes in cryptocurrency.In the United States, most state and federal regulators deal with crypto projects on a case-by-case basis. Take the CFTC’s charges of fraud and misappropriation of funds against Patrick McDonnell. McDonnell allegedly promoted himself as an expert in cryptocurrency investment and promised clients returns of up to 300 percent; yet after receiving payment, he’d sever all communication without providing anything in return. The McDonnell ruling treated cryptocurrency as a commodity, which allows the CFTC to assert jurisdiction over players engaged in related schemes.Meanwhile, the case between Maksim Zaslavskiy and the SEC dealt with an alleged ICO scam. About 1,000 people invested in Zaslavskiy’s project, but it became apparent that neither a token nor a digital asset was issued to investors, and no real blockchain technology was playing a role in his ICO. The Zaslavskiy ruling treated cryptocurrency as a security, which could encourage regulators to focus on registration issues — a potential snare for players launching ICOs without abiding by the SEC’s registration requirements.Cases like these show that regulators are testing several judicial theories and practices, and their rulings will set the precedent for future enforcement in an area where laws lag behind tech advancements.The Path to LegitimacyBecause cryptocurrency spans across so many legislative districts, it’s hard to get everyone to agree on the same path going forward. That said, I’d like to try to provide a basic framework for what a legitimate blockchain project should look like.The first thing any organization should do when considering an ICO launch is ensure it meets the SEC’s security offering requirements. It’s worth bearing in mind that the SEC has never approved any crypto-related assets for listing and trading, so be careful if you come across an ICO claiming to be SEC-approved. But we can begin building a better, more reliable investment framework by complying with regulations in advance. As we’ve seen, legislation and regulation tend to follow technological innovation — so innovators can save time and reduce friction by leading the way responsibly.One of the most important stipulations for publicly traded companies approved by the SEC is transparency — and transparency is one of the main reasons why blockchain-based transactions were invented in the first place. Along with being publicly visible and accountable, organizations should work with regulatory bodies in any jurisdiction they plan to operate in. Criminals tend to avoid the law, and if an ICO has nothing to hide, it should have no problem cooperating with regulators. This is fundamental to building trust among cryptocurrency investors, professionals, and the broader global community.In the past, proponents of cryptocurrency have championed its potential for deregulation, decentralization, and anonymity — but we’ve seen firsthand that where controls are too sparse, fraud runs rampant. And while not everyone agrees on the extent to which the cryptocurrency space should be regulated, I think we can all agree that without trust — in each other, in the rules, and in regulators to enforce those rules effectively — we can’t have a functioning system of investment and exchange.As cryptocurrency continues to evolve, it’s important to continue supporting groups working for the good of others while calling out those who are trying to game the system. If we, as a community, cooperate with regulators and invest in companies that are adding value to the world, we can change how the world sees cryptocurrency.

Essential Reading! Get my 3rd book: Eat Their Lunch “The first ever playbook for B2B salespeople on how to win clients and customers who are already being serviced by your competition.” Buy Now There can be no deal if both sides refuse to negotiate and seek a solution.One side believes that letting go of their position means losing. In their view, there is nothing as valuable as the place that they have staked out. The other side believes they cannot accept that position, and so, they have reached a stalemate, which means both sides lose.The other side believes they have to defend their position and anything that would change what they have laid out as necessary to a deal means losing. The first side cannot agree to those terms, and so there is no movement. Neither side gets what they want or need.What both sides have done is cut themselves off from the possibility of collaboration in trying to find a solution in which both sides will benefit as much or more than the current position to which they are committed to now. The refusal to let go of your position long enough to explore other options is a kind of pig-headed devotion to how you achieve an outcome instead of a similar commitment to achieving the outcome itself. It also eliminates the exploration of new potential deals that create better outcome for both parties.Not that it always works, but the person who is willing to be most vulnerable and suggest they are willing to explore new possibilities can break the logjam by going first, by suggesting they are willing to give up their current position to a seek a better position for both parties. Sometimes the outcomes of two parties are at such odds that there is no new possibilities because the outcomes are in conflict. But more often than not, there is a way for each party to work towards a solution where both parties find a position that is better than their original position, even if it takes work, and even if both have to give up their current demands.If two parties both believe that the way they win is by ensuring the other party loses, then neither is bargaining in good faith, and they have cut themselves off from a deal that would better serve both of their longer term outcomes. read more
Los Angeles, Oct 10 (PTI) “La La Land” director Damein Chazelle has got engaged to actor girlfriend Olivia Hamilton.Hamilton announced the news on Instagram where she posted a picture with the filmmaker sporting a sparkling, Monique Pean ring as Chazelle plants a kiss on her cheek.The director, 32, had referred to Hamilton as “the love of my life”, while accepting the award for Best Director at the Critics Choice Awards in December last year.”This is a film about love, I think, more than anything. So I have to thank the love of my life, Olivia Hamilton,” he said of “La La Land” at the time.Hamilton, too, had appeared briefly in the multiple Oscar-winning film in a scene opposite Emma Stone as an annoyed cafe customer.Chazelle was previously married to Jasmine McGlade, an executive producer on La La Land. They parted ways in 2014. PTI RDS RDS read more
LOS ANGELES (AP) — Kevin Durant is setting the tone for the Golden State Warriors. Get him the ball and watch him work.Durant scored 38 of his playoff career-high 50 points in the first half, Draymond Green had a triple-double, and Golden State dominated in closing out the Los Angeles Clippers 129-110 Friday night to win their first-round series 4-2.“I scored 50 points but I missed some good shots,” Durant said. “I thought I could have made a few more.”The Warriors advanced to the Western Conference semifinals and will face the Houston Rockets beginning Sunday in a rematch of last year’s conference finals. That’s when Houston let a 3-2 lead slip away and the Warriors went on to win their second straight NBA championship.“They’re similar to the Clippers,” Golden State’s Andrew Bogut said. “They run the pick-and-roll and we’ll need to be disciplined to beat them.”Golden State Warriors guard Stephen Curry, left, shoots as Los Angeles Clippers forward Danilo Gallinari defends during the first half in Game 6 of a first-round NBA basketball playoff series Friday, April 26, 2019, in Los Angeles. (AP Photo/Mark J. Terrill)Golden State found itself in the unfamiliar position of trying to win a third road game in a playoff series for the first time in franchise history. Durant made his mark early with 38 points that tied for the second-most points in a half in a playoff game.He was 12 of 17 from the floor, made all 10 of his free throws and sank four 3-pointers in leading the Warriors to a 72-53 advantage.“That was one of the great performances I’ve ever seen in my life,” Warriors coach Steve Kerr said. “He’s the ultimate weapon because there’s no defense for Kevin.”Durant had a vicious block of Danilo Gallinari in the fourth that left both of them on the floor. On the Warriors’ next possession, Durant converted a three-point play.The Clippers fought off elimination with a 129-121 win on the Warriors’ home floor in Game 5, but aside from a game-opening burst and another to start the second half they couldn’t make a stand in front of their crowd.Still, they bowed out knowing they had exceeded others’ low expectations of their playoff chances.“We took the back-to-back champions to six games,” the Clippers’ Patrick Beverley said. “We hold our heads high.”Durant’s 45 points on Wednesday were his previous career playoff high.Stephen Curry added 24 points and Green had 16 points, 14 rebounds and 10 assists for his fifth career playoff triple-double, despite five fouls. Klay Thompson was limited to nine points with three fouls. Durant got his fourth foul in the fourth.The Warriors repeatedly burned the Clippers with dunks off alley-oop passes.Los Angeles opened the game on an 18-8 run. Durant and Curry combined to score the Warriors’ next nine points as part of a 21-5 burst that put them ahead for good.Gallinari led the Clippers with 29 points and rookie Shai Gilgeous-Alexander added 22.Lou Williams and Montrezl Harrell, the NBA’s highest-scoring bench combo, were never a factor. Williams shot 3 of 21 for eight points and Harrell was 4 of 7 for 10 points and five fouls. The two reserves scored a combined 57 points on 23-for-33 shooting in Game 5.Williams folded up the stat sheet and tossed it under the table after the game.Los Angeles Clippers guard Garrett Temple, right, has his shot blocked by Golden State Warriors guard Klay Thompson during the first half in Game 6 of a first-round NBA basketball playoff series Friday, April 26, 2019, in Los Angeles. (AP Photo/Mark J. Terrill)“I struggled at home this series and played well on the road,” he said. “Tonight was especially tough because it was a deciding game.”Gallinari and Gilgeous-Alexander powered the Clippers’ 17-10 spurt that opened the third and pulled them to 82-71.But Golden State held the Clippers to seven points the rest of the quarter and took a 102-78 lead into the fourth. The Clippers cut their 24-point deficit nearly in half, but got no closer.WAITING ROCKETSHouston arrived in the Bay Area on Friday and planned to watch the Warriors-Clippers game there, anticipating that Golden State would win and there would be an early start time for Game 1 of the conference semifinals on Sunday.REMEMBERING HAVLICEKThere was a moment of silence for Boston Celtics star and Hall of Famer John Havlicek, who died Thursday at 79.“He was such a good human being,” said Clippers coach Doc Rivers, who guided the Celtics to their most recent NBA championship in 2008. “Really, if you could model our players and how we wanted them to be — he was a fierce competitor, amazing humility, and he was a gentleman — if we could model all of us like that, we would be in a great place as a league.”When Rivers took over as Celtics coach in 2004, he noticed that the franchise’s legendary players didn’t come around or spend time with the team. He wanted to change that so he had the team extend invitations to every former player.“The next day, John Havlicek walks into the gym and, in a typical John Havlicek way, walks up to me and introduced himself,” Rivers said. “He said, ‘Hi. I’m John Havlicek.’ Like I didn’t know. But that’s just who he was, and after that he was always around.”TIP-INSWarriors: Durant tied Phoenix’s Charles Barkley, who scored 38 in a half against Golden State on May 4, 1994, in a first-round series. … They improved to 17-8 in Game 6 of a playoff series. … The Warriors went 4-1 against the Clippers at Staples Center this season. … Former Clipper Shaun Livingston started in place of Andrew Bogut.Clippers: Patrick Beverley had 14 rebounds for the second straight game, tying his career high. … They were 0-3 at home in a playoff series for the first time, having also lost Games 3 and 4 at Staples Center. … It was the last game of Hall of Fame announcer Ralph Lawler’s career. He retires after 40 years with the team and 60 years in the business.___By BETH HARRIS AP Sports WriterTweetPinShare0 Shares read more

Edson Alvarez didn’t feel like a loser. Sure, his World Cup didn’t go as planned. French newspaper L’Equipe put him in its Worst XI of the tournament – a selection no doubt spurred by his own goal against Sweden in the final group game. It was a gaffe that left him in tears after the whistle blew on a 3-0 El Tri defeat.Yet, the rising Club America star knew better things were ahead. “The only defeated people in the world are those who quit fighting and dreaming,” he wrote on Instagram after Mexico was eliminated by Brazil in the round of 16.Today, Alvarez’s dreams are alive and well. Now 21, this summer will be remembered as the one in which he lifted the Gold Cup and moved to Ajax. The Amsterdam club fended off West Ham and Wolves for the versatile player who, since those difficult moments in Russia, helped America to the Liga MX Apertura title and became a critical piece of Tata Martino’s national team. Article continues below Editors’ Picks Emery out of jail – for now – as brilliant Pepe papers over Arsenal’s cracks What is Manchester United’s ownership situation and how would Kevin Glazer’s sale of shares affect the club? Ox-rated! Dream night in Genk for Liverpool ace after injury nightmare Messi a man for all Champions League seasons – but will this really be Barcelona’s? Each summer has brought something new for Alvarez. He’s currently the starting holding midfielder in Martino’s 4-3-3 but went to the World Cup last year as a right back. That was tough since he’d only come in for spot starts there with Las Aguilas, more often playing in the middle. This season, club coach Miguel Herrera deployed him in the midfield next to Guido Rodriguez far more frequently, and his comfort playing in that role has grown.“Really, I’m comfortable in the middle, I feel really comfortable as a five,” Alvarez told Goal this summer. “I don’t dislike playing center back either. It’s a position where I started my career, even going back to the academy days, when I was just starting I was playing center back.“To be honest, right back isn’t my strongest position. At the end of the day, though, I’ve always said that’s football and at the time the manager needed me there. I wanted to show him I that I was able to do it.”The summer of 2017 also was formative for Alvarez. Former Mexico manager Juan Carlos Osorio brought him along to the Confederations Cup to observe, though he wasn’t part of the squad. Then, Osorio played him in the 2017 Gold Cup as El Tri’s right back, paving the way for his World Cup performances after injuries to Diego Reyes and Nestor Araujo allowed Alvarez to make the team. Since 2017, Alvarez has said his dream is to play in Europe, and seeing how players like Rafa Marquez and Hector Moreno landed at the game’s highest levels had a big effect on Alvarez.”I couldn’t believe it, being a young guy who at that time was 18 or 19 years old. I felt really happy to be involved with these stars, with these ‘cracks’ who have done a lot of things in their careers,” Alvarez recalled last year. “They’ve come to me giving me advice, advice on the field as well. I feel really fortunate to have been in with the group because with this I grew daily.”He’s now set to follow in those players’ footsteps. Alvarez’s physical presence, plus his comfort on the ball make it easy to see why a team like Ajax would want to bring him in.It was a frustrating end to his America tenure, with injuries limiting him and keeping him out of the Liguilla in the Clausura. A knee issue threatened to keep him out of the Gold Cup as well, but he recovered quickly from the knock suffered in a pre-tournament friendly against Venezuela and played the full 90 in all but one match for Mexico.”Possibilities are opening up. I’m really happy to be more and more close to this dream that I desire with all my heart and hopefully it will be the best for me,” Alvarez said earlier in the tournament.His test in the Gold Cup final was one of his biggest to date. With little help from others, he was tasked with controlling a United States midfield that included veteran savvy in Michael Bradley and youthful raw ability in Weston McKennie. He played well in the middle and spent much of the second half dropping between the two center backs – a tactical shift inserted by Tata Martino to free up his wide players to get further up the field and frustrate the United States’ outside backs. It worked well, with Mexico winning 1-0 thanks to a second-half goal from Jonathan dos Santos.At club level, Alvarez has leaned on Rodriguez next to him to cover him if he’s in the wrong place on the field. With Mexico, he has Moreno and Carlos Salcedo behind him but has far less support in the midfield. He looked increasingly comfortable as the tournament wore on – even as the rest of the Mexico team took a dip from the group stage to the knockout round.Alvarez helped El Tri to victory in the tournament, and he beamed during the celebrations in Chicago, with the Gold Cup win coming just a year after those frustrating moments at the World Cup.With a big role to play for Mexico going forward and an exciting club future with the Eredivisie champions, Alvarez should feel like a winner. read more

EDMONTON — The Alberta government has officially asked the province’s Appeal Court whether Ottawa’s new environmental assessment process for major construction projects like pipelines is constitutional.The government filed its challenge with the court on Tuesday, asking it whether the federal government was acting within its authority when it passed the act that established the process earlier this year.Alberta Premier Jason Kenney said in June that he was pondering a constitutional challenge, arguing Bill C-69 infringes on the rights of provinces to control their own natural resources and that it will kill what is left of Alberta’s oil-and-gas sector.When the bill was proclaimed into law last month, the province’s justice and energy ministers vowed to challenge its constitutionality.Environment Minister Catherine McKenna has said the new review process for projects like pipelines, mines and highways, will be clear and timely.She said it will allow for as many as 100 new resource projects worth $500 billion to be proposed and examined over the next 10 years.The Canadian Press read more
NEW DELHI: Union Minister Hardeep Singh Puri Wednesday alleged that the AAP is seeking votes from Delhiites by spreading “lies” on several issues and asserted that a party which does not have the expertise of running an administration nor dedication towards works, is resorting to lies. The Union housing and urban affairs minister tweeted a purported campaign pamphlet of AAP’s east Delhi candidate Atishi and said a bunch of lies has been prepared by her. Also Read – After eight years, businessman arrested for kidnap & murderIn the pamphlet, the party promises regularisation of unauthorised colonies once the national capital gets full statehood and also promises to stop the sealing drive in the city. “Every citizen knows that the sealing drive had been carried out following the direction of the Supreme Court-appointed Bhure Lal committee, and neither the Centre nor any civic body had anything to do with it,” Puri said in a series of tweets in Hindi. No immediate reaction was available from the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP). Also Read – Two brothers held for snatchingsPuri alleged that it was the BJP-led central government which provided relief to people by making amendments in the Master Plan, but surprisingly, the AAP is not “ashamed of spreading lies”. The ruling AAP is currently running a campaign in support of its demand for granting full statehood to Delhi in run up to the Lok Sabha elections. The Lok Sabha polls being conducted in seven phases will begin on April 11 and continue till May 19. Delhi will vote on May 12 and the overall results will be declared on May 23. read more
The extent to which these words achieve lasting… Oxford Dictionaries has announced that the word “youthquake” is its word of the year for 2017 to acknowledge the surge in young people making their presence felt in elections. Picked via a multi-stage selection process and announced annually since 2004, Oxford Dictionaries’ word of the year is the one judged best to “reflect the ethos, mood, or preoccupations of that particular year and to have lasting potential as a word of cultural significance.” Past incarnations of the UK edition have ranged from 2004’s Chav to 2016’s “post-truth”, featuring, in between, a well known Catherine Tate catchphrase, an insurance comparison site coinage and an emoji. read more
AirAsia group chief Tony Fernandes on Sunday slammed rumours of AirAsia India CEO Mittu Chandilya quitting the airline. Fernandes also announced the airline’s plan to buy two new aircraft to expand its exisiting fleet.According to earlier reports, Chandilya was planning to leave the airline after his contract with AirAsia ended in March 2016.Speaking on the sidelines of the “Make in India” initiative in Mumbai, Fernandes said: “I read about Mittu calling it quits from you guys. I absolutely deny it. There is no substance to the rumours,” Press Trust of India reports.AirAsia India has a fleet of six Airbus A320-200 planes. Although the airline is reportedly making losses, Fernandes said soon two more aircraft would be added to the fleet and “a dozen later.” He did not give a specific time-period of the aircraft deliveries.AirAsia India is a joint venture between parent company AirAsia, Tata Sons and Arun Bhatia of Telestra Tradeplace Pvt Ltd. The parent company holds 49 percent stake in the airline, Tata sons have a 41 percent stake, while Bhatia owns a 10 percent stake in it, Press Trust of India added.If the 5/20 rule is scrapped, AirAsia India would be allowed to operate on international routes with a fleet of less than 20 aircraft.”All I am looking for is the ease of doing business. I hope basically that your (India’s) aviation sector is made easy,” Fernandes told the agency. read more
For actor-filmmaker Nandita Das, being a mother has completely transformed life. So has it for 21 leading writers of the country who look beyond cliches to reveal the mysterious, hilarious and creative state of motherhood in all its complexity, in a new book.‘Understanding the world of children has made me understand my instincts… understand the human instinct, because children are so full of innocence. All the negative and positive things done by children are all innocent’, said Nandita, after launching the book titled Also Read – ‘Playing Jojo was emotionally exhausting’Of Mothers and Others. ‘I would have written about this journey which is so full of many different contradictory emotions and experiences of motherhood. Anything that I see or write or think about has a different angle and it is surely going to impact my son,’ said Nandita.The actor-director who also served as the Chairperson of Children’s films society for three years said her interactions with filmmakers and children made her understand the human instinct. ‘I have seem a film on death made by some children. Adults would never have thought about it,’ said the actor. Also Read – Leslie doing new comedy special with NetflixThe anthology of essays, poems and short fiction edited by Jaishree Misra is a collaborative venture between the NGO Save the Children and publishing house Zubaan. It has a foreword by actor Shabana Azmi.Jaishree said she began on the idea of the book a little over a year ago.‘It started with an event organised by Save the Children where I found myself promising to edit a book that would highlight the problems some women face in caring for their children. In India we lose children in 19 seconds to easily preventable diseases and it seemed worth trying to help the organisation employ more health workers to assist struggling families,’ said Jaishree. UN statistics indicate that in India, a woman dies in childbirth every 10 minutes. ‘We have the highest rate of child malnutrition among all middle-income countries and the second highest rate in the entire world. A tenth of women in the country are undernourished themselves, and this is being passed on to their newborns from the womb as they start to develop,’ she said.Smrithi Lamech, writes about different perceptions of society towards the girl and boy child in her essay Determination. Smrithi’s unexpected take on sex determination is thrown into sharp relief when read alongside Kishwar Desai’s story The Devi Makers.Another author Shalini Sinha writes about the life of her mother initially in life and after her death. Likewise other authors jot their own experiences in their writings. Jai Arjun Singh, the lone male writer in the anthology feels that his mother was a positive influence his life. He has written about the representation of mothers in mainstream Indian cinema.Umra Qureshi writer and jounalist has penned the problems faced by women of Kashmir. The book includes stories and essays of other writers who has shared their experiences on their mothers. read more

Free Webinar | Sept 5: Tips and Tools for Making Progress Toward Important Goals 4 min read July 8, 2015 This past September we founded a social-good tech startup, Stand4. It’s a simple concept centered around creating new ways for you to make your mark on the world. And it’s thriving: Over the past few months we’ve grown our team to 20-plus, brought on some great partners and begun to gear up for our launch. While all this has been going on, we’ve made a conscious and ruthless effort to utilize only the best tools for small teams. Here are six of our favorites:Related: 16 Productivity Tools Useful for Every Entrepreneur1. TrelloIt depends on the environment you’re cultivating, but if you’re about ultra-transparent teamwork, there’s no better tool than Trello. It’s “a new document type that starts with collaboration,” says Michael Pryor, CEO of Trello, “where everyone is seeing the same board at the same time.” The visual nature of the platform makes it highly flexible, highly collaborative and great for small teams. We love it for prioritization standards. Our daily standups are centered around simply ranking our Trello Cards. Now, at any moment, any team member knows the exact top priorities of the team.2. IFTTT“When it comes to building a business, there are certain everyday tasks that you want running automatically in the background,” says Linden Tibetts, co-founder of IFTTT. IFTTT helps you automate your business by creating easily integrated, highly customizable recipes that connect services together, so you don’t have to. We love this tool because you can use it in so many different ways. There are over 165 channels that plug into services, ranging from Dropbox, to Gmail, to the lights in your office. Simply set up an if/then statement and you’re good to go. We use it for quite a few things. Some examples:If someone posts a photo with #Stand4, we get sent an email with that photo.If it’s 7 am, we’ll receive daily reminders in Slack. If we post any photo socially, we’ll have it autosaved to a dropbox folder. 3. CharlieCharlie is a personal assistant that helps you prepare for upcoming meetings. This automated tool syncs with your calendar and then pulls from LinkedIn, Twitter and major newspapers to provide insight into the company and person you’re about to meet with. This young startup is still learning but is off to a great start. Aaron Frazin, CEO of Charlie, imagines Charlie being “a personal assistant that knows exactly what research you want on your desk an hour before any meeting.” He adds: “Charlie is about to start learning what you need, so you never walk in unprepared.”Related: 5 Tools That Keep Team Communications Untangled4. YesWare It seems like everyone we know is using some type of email-tracking software these days. When we first started out, we dabbled in a few but could never get behind one fully. YesWare is the best we’ve seen. For its price, it offers the most complete email analytics solution with open/click tracking, email templates and the ability to collaborate with other team members. “We serve brand-new startups and publicly held companies. Our mobile application works seamlessly with our desktop products. And we’re just getting started,” says Michael Bellows, CEO of YesWare. 5. Product Hunt Yes, Product Hunt is quite different from the rest of this list but we really believe it belongs here. Discovery is a huge part of any startup, and Product Hunt, which offers just what its name says, curates that better than anyone else. It’s one of the first sites we read every morning, and should be one you frequent, too.6. Slack Finally, there’s Slack. A messaging app for teams, this is is the no-brainer of the list. If you’re a startup and not using Slack, you’re missing out.Related: Slack, the Startup Looking to Kill Email, Is Now Reportedly Worth $2 Billion Opinions expressed by Entrepreneur contributors are their own. read more

At the Krabi event, two days later, they met Thai sellers from 50 companies, mainly resorts in South Thailand.Weddings and honeymoons are billion dollar earners for Asia’s tourism industry and Thailand is emerging as one of the region’s top spots to tie the knot.A mid-2013 TAT study on niche market tourism, based on 30,000 interviews and questionnaires, estimated Thailand attracted 1,043,684 wedding and honeymoon related trips and earned 34.62 billion Baht.The study indicated major source markets for weddings and honeymoons were East Asia, Europe and ASEAN, while the key driving factors were the abundance of beautiful beaches, luxury hotels and tropical climate.Commenting on drawing more romantic travel to the country, Mrs. Juthaporn Rerngronasa, TAT Deputy Governor for International Marketing (Europe, Africa, Middle East and Americas) said, “Thailand has been voted the ‘Best Honeymoon Destination’ by various websites and media, so we are confident the two trade meets, this May, will help grow the weddings and honeymoon market even further.” Thailand TourismSource = Tourism Authority of Thailand read more
The Hong Kong Tourism Board (HKTB) has joined forces with National Geographic to promote its 10th annual ‘Great Outdoors’ campaign. The campaign will include an authoritative guidebook and collaborative content with insights from National Geographic photographers and trail experts.Visitors to Hong Kong can now discover Hong Kong through the contrasting lenses of the ‘One Place, Two Perspectives’ narrative. Contrasting city views with verdant mountains, and traditional villages with natural flora and fauna, the stories will present Hong Kong as a jaw-dropping visual dichotomy.These tales of contrasts will celebrate the hard-to-believe fact that about three-quarters of Hong Kong’s landmass is actually the countryside, and the hiking trails are easily accessible from any corner of the city.“We are delighted to be working with a powerful brand like National Geographic, which has a huge number of followers, who enjoy travelling and adventures,” said Anthony Lau, Executive Director of the HKTB. “In this fresh attempt to showcase Hong Kong’s natural beauty through stunning photography and inspiring stories by some of the world’s top photographers, we hope to encourage visitors to discover another side of cosmopolitan Hong Kong during the hiking season from November to March.”“As a community of bold explorers with an insatiable curiosity, there’s nothing we like more than showing people new perspectives on the world around them,” said Con Apostolopoulos, Senior Vice President, National Geographic Partners, Asia Pacific and the Middle East. “Partnering with HKTB is a fantastic opportunity to transform the way people think about Hong Kong; showing off its contrasting urban and rural beauty in a new light through the lens of talented photographers and explorers.”‘One Place, Two Perspectives’ will be presented by French photographer Matthieu Paley, one of the Nat Geo contributing photographers, who will capture Hong Kong UNESCO Global Geopark; National Geographic award-winning photographer Tugo Cheng, whose background in architecture gives his work a unique aesthetic, who will take his camera to Plover Cove Country Park; and trail runner Wyan Chow Pui-yan, who placed 17th in the Ultra-Trail World Tour, will lead the Nat Geo team into Tai Mo Shan, the city’s tallest mountain. read more

for improving it: drawing Read More: The Cold Medicine Linked to Memory Problems As long ago as 1973 investigators were studying the memory-boosting advantage of so-called dual-codingthe way that a combination of both thinking about an object or activity and drawing a picture of it can make us remember it better Research did show that the strategy worked but the studies were both sparse and flawed failing to account for the mere fact that it takes longer to draw a picture than say write a word and whether writing the word in a more time-consuming wayusing elaborate calligraphy for examplewould thus boost recall too TIME Health Newsletter Get the latest health and science news plus: burning questions and expert tips View Sample Sign Up Now In order to tease out those and other variables a group led by psychologist Jeffrey D Wammes recruited sample groups of students and ran seven different trials of essentially the same experiment on them In all of the trials the scientists started with a list of 80 simple wordsall nouns and all easy to draw such as balloon fork kite pear peanut and shoe A random series of 30 of those words were flashed on a screen along with instructions either to draw the object or write down its name After the 30 words they would perform a filler tasklistening to a series of tones and identifying whether each was low- high- or medium-pitched That task had nothing to do with the study except to get the subjects’ minds off of what they had just done so that the memories could either consolidate or just as often vanish Finally they would write down a list of as many of the objects from the first test as they could Read More: These Foods Mess With Your Memory In most of the trials the subjects got 40 seconds to draw their picture but in one they got just four seconds In another variation they would draw the object or write the word or as a third option list its descriptive characteristics In another the third option would be to visualize the object In yet another they would write the word as elaborately and decoratively as possible But no matter how many variations of the test the researchers ran one result was consistent: Drawing the object beat every other option every single time “We observed a significant recall advantage for words that were drawn as compared to those that were written” said Wammes in a prepared statement “Participants often recalled more than twice as many drawn words” Just why this is so is not clear One past theory had been that drawing requires what the researchers call a deeper LoPor level of processing But the trial in which the subjects were required to list the characteristics of an object went pretty deep too and it didn’t make a difference Another theory had been that drawing simply takes longer but the four-second trial appeared to debunk that For now Wammes and his group are speaking only generally concluding that drawing encourages “a seamless integration of

(Source: Reuters) Top News It was bad enough for Jose Mourinho that his first Manchester derby ended in defeat.That the architects of the loss were Pep Guardiola and Kevin De Bruyne might have been even tougher for the Manchester United manager to digest In a resumption of the often-feisty rivalry between soccer’s two most coveted coaches Guardiola got the better of Mourinho as Man City beat Man United 2-1 in the biggest match of the English Premier League so far City’s fourth straight win to open the season was inspired by De Bruyne a player deemed not good enough and discarded by Mourinho when both were at Chelsea De Bruyne scored the opening goal in the 15th minute and played a big role in the second goal in the 36th sending in a shot that thumped the post and rebounded back to Kelechi Iheanacho to tap in “Kevin had an amazing amazing game” Guardiola said With its crisp passing and movement City delivered a footballing clinic in the first half at Old Trafford to humiliate United and Mourinho who acknowledged that he couldn’t wait for halftime to come By then Zlatan Ibrahimovic had reduced the deficit against the run of play volleying home after City goalkeeper Claudio Bravo – making his debut – dropped a free kick United couldn’t cap an improved second-half display with an equalizer leaving Mourinho with just one win over Guardiola in his last 10 attempts and only three in a total of 17 games against Guardiola’s teams There was no sign of the bitterness that marked their meetings in Spanish football when in charge of Barcelona and Real Madrid with Mourinho and Guardiola shaking hands and even sharing a hug before kickoff and at fulltime “I didn’t come here to see about the rivalry” Guardiola said “He wants to win I want to win He beats me and I beat him in the future It’s as simple as that” After three straight wins United dropped its first points of the season Chelsea is the only team apart from City to have a 100 percent winning start and plays its fourth game at Swansea on Sunday Here’s what else happened in the Premier League: LEICESTER It doesn’t look like Leicester will deliver another fairytale title success this season The champions were beaten 4-1 by Liverpool and have lost two of their four games so far Leicester lost only three games last season Perhaps Liverpool could be the unlikely title challenger this time round Roberto Firmino scored twice while Sadio Mane and Adam Lallana also scored at Anfield which hosted its first game of the season following the completion of work to expand the club’s main stand Liverpool has already beaten Arsenal and Leicester this season and drawn at Tottenham Next up for Leicester: A break from league play and its first ever match in the Champions League against Club Brugge on

seal a 2-1 win over Southampton at home Spurs eased to a 4-0 win at Stoke with forward Son Heung-min scoring twice and Harry Kane netting his first goal of the season It’s early in the season but the

NewsLondon: It is difficult to digest exclusion after a fabulous season in Test cricket but Ravichandran Ashwin "understands the dynamics" of team composition which led to Ravindra Jadeja being preferred over him feels India captain Virat Kohli File image of India’s captain Virat Kohli at a press conference AFP Asked if as a skipper is it a difficult job to go up to his main strike bowler (in Test cricket) Kohli replied that on the contrary it is easy "Ashwin is a top-class bowler Everyone knows that And he is very professional as well He understands the dynamics of the side that was picked in the last game and he was absolutely fine with it He (Ashwin) told me ‘I support you whatever you want to do’ That’s always been our equation" Kohli said on the eve of the match against Sri Lanka Kohli revealed that there has been "disagreements" with Ashwin but specifically related to on-field technical issues and never ever over selection matters "Yes we do have disagreements on bowling plans and all those sort of things because he is a very smart guy and he has his own plans in place All those things happen "But in this case where team selection and all these things come into play he’s very professional He understands what the team demands It’s a very nice and beautiful thing about him that he always puts the team first He was the first guy who said I have no problems with the kind of combination you’re going in with" Kohli said As a captain Kohli has taken some tough calls including promotion of Hardik Pandya over Mahendra Singh Dhoni but he again stressed on the camaraderie of the change room which enables him to take the call that is beneficial for the team "Not hard (taking tough calls) at all As I said it’s very hard for people looking from the outside but the kind of understanding we have within the team it’s difficult to explain We have a lot of respect among the players and trust among the players" he said The skipper said that he isn’t speaking just for the heck of it but that has been the case "There are no issues whatsoever – I mean I am not saying this because I want to make it sound good but if you guys ever end up experiencing that team environment you will understand what I am saying that there is total transparency "Everyone respects and understands what we decide to do as a team If people react to it differently then it becomes an issue but if everyone is supportive of it then you have no issues at all" Kohli said On Umesh Yadav being preferred over a more crafty Mohammed Shami the skipper’s logic was lack of game time But he also did not forget to mention about how good the bench strength is when someone of Shami’s calibre has to wait for his turn "Shami has not played 50-over cricket for a long time I am glad he bowled really well in the first few practice games but I felt that Umesh Bhuvi and Bumrah had much more match practice and the performances to back that up in the last few series we played" Kohli said "A bowler like Shami will always be in your set up because we know about his abilities and he’s the sort of guy that can win you games in any form of cricket" he added Written by Aashay Khandekar Sandeep Daundkar | Ahmednagar | Updated: January 12 2016 5:42 am Anita Shete (right) and Shalini Lande Top News IN WHAT can be termed as a groundbreaking shift in its age-old practices the Shani Shingnapur Temple Trust has appointed in a first in 53 years a woman as its president on Monday Anita Shete who hails from the family that has previously held “important positions” in the temple’s committee took charge on Monday to become the fifth president of the trust that has been operational since 1963 Besides Shete another woman representative Shalini Lande has been inducted in the committee otherwise dominated by nine male members While some call it a ‘face-saving’ measure by the temple’s trust to save its tarnished image others say this could also be a move to prevent protests by activists who had decided to galvanize a force to break the temple’s “protocol” of disallowing women from entering the shrine platform on January 26 Even as the women took charge they were quick enough to snipe at activists who alleged that the temple showed ‘bias towards women’ by not allowing them to enter the core shrine area After taking charge Shete said that her election as the president of the trust shows that there is no bias towards women and that they are treated equally and respected by the trust However she added in the same breath that her selection hasn’t given women permission to climb the platform “For last five years neither men nor women are allowed to enter the core premises My election as the president won’t change this Nobody should break the rules for the sake of it” she said She went one step further to say that on January 26 there will be a big rally by women in Shani Shingnapur to support the board’s decision “We’re going to muster a big force which will predominantly include women to support the board’s decision to disallow devotees from entering the core shrine area” she said However sources also claim that the reason behind the rally is to counter the protest by ‘Bhumata Brigade’ an organistation that has vowed to breach the board’s protocol on the same day “We support women empowerment and my election as the president will no doubt boost the morale of women in Shani Shingnapur However if anyone is trying to violate the rules and set a wrong precedent we’ll not tolerate it” said Shete Corroborating Shete Lande said “This is an apt reply to those who were blaming the board for gender bias Now that women have been inducted as the trustees there won’t be any objection What the first woman did was accidental but what followed later was a vile attempt to malign our image” said Lande The temple has been at the helm of controversy after a woman entered the close premises of the temple on November 28 and was criticised for her act As a reaction four more women attempted to enter the core shrine angering the villagers in the area For all the latest Pune News download Indian Express App More Top NewsBy: Express Web Desk | Mumbai | Updated: July 29 2015

and ensured that her was known to the public “I did not want my face blurred because I am not the one at fault The rapists are the ones who should be ashamed of whatever they did” she said For her the experience of being in conversation with Khan at the studio was “a mixed feeling” “On the one hand it was exhilarating; on the other hand it was painful as I was reliving my whole experience But I had consciously decided to be strong and narrate my experience to the world” Those experiences she tells us involved educating other rape victims about their rights while also learning about the apathy of the police and the doctors in the process “I didn’t know myself that a number of the general diary had to be obtained that an FIR is my right and that the cops are duty-bound to register an FIR” she said She called the doctors conducting medical tests on rape victims as “inexperienced” and “inhuman” “It was rightly pointed out on the show that doctors look at you (victims) with a lot of suspicion and that the police take the side of the accused” The crew of Satyamev Jayate had also interviewed Mausumi Kayal one of the leading protesters of the Kamduni rape and murder incident on June 7 2013 The rape and murder of a 20-year-old in Madhyamgram was the third incident that the show concentrated upon “I am happy that our movement has reached to such a level I hope it stirs others into joining us to protest against such menace who prey upon women I believe people will definitely get more courage after watching the programme and we will consider ourselves fortunate if we are able to inspire even a single person” Kayal said Chairperson of National Commission for Women Mamta Sharma too said the show was an effective medium to highlight the issue “Three of the incidents being from West Bengal reflect the dipping law and order situation in the state It will definitely create awareness among people Hopefully the state will act against the negligence of the doctors and the police” she said She also said that merely framing laws will not help unless proper implementation of those laws are ensured Sharma also pointed out the need for appointing female officers as investigating
