Where Do You Buy Your Technology? [Poll]

Where Do You Buy Your Technology? [Poll]

first_img8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Market Samsung is setting up shop – literally – with a new plan to open mini-stores within 1,500 U.S. Best Buy stores by June. But is the electronics giant getting in front of where consumers really buy their technology?The new in-store shops will have Samsung employees demo and sell a wide range of Samsung’s products, including smartphones, tablets and televisions. Five hundred of these mini-stores will be open by April 8, in time to help promote the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S4 smartphone.In an interview with ZDNet, Ketrina Dunagan, VP of Retail Marketing for Samsung Mobile’s U.S. unit, said something interesting:“This is our first opportunity to demonstrate connected mobile products in a location with educated Samsung employees able to walk a consumer through the experience. About 70 percent of U.S. population is within 10 miles of a Best Buy.”This got me to thinking: is proximity alone enough of a draw for consumers? For me, it isn’t. I have a long-standing arrangement with Best Buys and similar stores: don’t bother me. If I walk in to one, I usually know what I want and am not interested in talking to the sales staff. I would much rather just get my tech online, where I can save some money.But that’s just me, of course. Where is it you go for your general tech needs? Most of us, usually, hit our carrier’s storefront for our phone needs, but what about the rest of your tech purchases?For instance, do you visit large electronics/appliance stores like Best Buy or Fry’s? Or is a megastore like Wal-Mart or Mejer’s more your speed? Some people want to go even deeper on discounts and will shop at warehouse stores like Costco or Sam’s Club.True Apple fans will find the nearest Apple store, of course, and Microsoft also has a slowly expanding base of brick-and-mortar outlets. Or do you buy direct from the vendor, shopping at their online commerce site?Amazon is also a popular place to buy tech, and many people shop for bargains at such third-party outlets, both online and physical.Or are you the diligent type of bargain hunter, who visits Ebay or Craigslist to find what you need?Take the poll below and let us know where your preferred tech shopping takes place.Image courtesy of Shutterstock. brian proffitt Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting Related Posts center_img A Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai… Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… Tags:#commerce last_img read more

Video: Louisville’s Rick Pitino Thrashed A Student Reporter During Thursday’s Press Conference

first_imgRick Pitino in a press conference.Louisville’s men’s basketball team went one-and-done in the ACC Tournament, losing its quarterfinal game to North Carolina Thursday afternoon. Following the contest, Cardinals’ coach Rick Pitino held a brief press conference with reporters. The first question came from Derek Brightwell, a reporter for the school’s student newspaper, the Louisville Cardinal. Brightwell asked Pitino why his team has struggled against the zone so much this season; Pitino was apparently not impressed with the question. The question starts at the 0:56 mark.  It is fairly clear why Louisville has struggled against the zone this season; they don’t shoot the ball well, which is typically a requirement for good offense when facing a zone defense. But Pitino pulled the I’m a big-time college basketball coach and you’re a student reporter that doesn’t know anything move, and he came across as a pretty big jerk in the process. The student reporter was apparently OK with it, though. Got thrashed by Pitino at the presser, but the @CardChronicle comment section was talking about me. Also picked up 4 followers. #illtakeit— Derek Brightwell (@derekbrightwell) March 12, 2015Louisville will learn its NCAA Tournament fate Sunday night.[Courier-Journal]last_img read more

TEN Orders Tanker Duo against New LongTerm Charter Deals

first_imgzoomIllustration. Image Courtesy: Pexels under CC0 Creative Commons license Greece-based Tsakos Energy Navigation has placed an order for two Suezmax crude oil tankers on the back of new long-term charter deals.Namely, the company said that the new vessels would, upon delivery, enter into minimum 5 maximum 12-year contracts to an undisclosed oil major.According to data provided by Asiasis, the 158,000 dwt tankers were ordered from Hyundai Samho Heavy Industries in late January. The company would reportedly build the units at USD 65 million per vessel.The data shows that the tankers, which would be delivered in 2020, were hired by Chevron.TEN added that the time charter equivalent revenues from these two fixtures, over the duration of the respective contacts, is expected at a minimum USD 110 million and could reach USD 300 million, should employment be extended to its maximum period.“We are immensely proud to have further solidified our relationship with one of the world’s top oil majors which again highlights’ TEN’s position as an “owner of choice” to “blue-chip” charterers across the globe,” George Saroglou, COO of TEN, said.“This latest chapter in TEN’s growth policy, having already taken delivery of 15 fully employed vessels, underlines the company’s strategy to grow responsibly while fortifying the fleet’s cash generating ability for the years to come,” Saroglou concluded.last_img read more

When work pressure turns deadly

When work pressure turns deadly

first_imgFrom opening a store in 1996 to having 1,752 stores in the present time, success of VG Siddhartha’s premium coffee brand, Café Coffee Day, has been an enviable journey. Being the founder, Siddhartha had to deal with a lot of work pressure which further led him into depression. The effect was so severe that he decided to end his life – leaving behind a note stating himself as a ‘failed entrepreneur’.The news of his suicide and the dead body found on the bank of a river, left everyone in a whammy. Also Read – An income drop can harm brainSuch incidences, where many artists, celebrities, and top-notch businessmen ended their lives because of increased pressure, have become very frequent in the past few years, and as per World Health Organization, workplace stress is the most dangerous form of stress. It is the response people may have when presented with work demand and pressure. Basically, any issue in the workplace can affect a person’s wellbeing, and that is what leads to mental health problems like anxiety, depression and sometimes suicide. Also Read – Shallu Jindal honoured with Mahatma AwardThus, to understand the reasons of such actions, to know what might have gone wrong, and what can we do to make it right, Millennium Post talked to various experts in Mental Health sector. According to Dr. Aditi Govitrikar, Psychologist, just like success and failure are the reason for happiness and sadness, respectively, they affect one’s mental health too. “There are certain kinds of disorders which are common to the entrepreneurs, or bold people who have made very risky decisions in life and achieved success. The most common disorder with Type A personalities and entrepreneurs is Obsessive-Compulsive Personality Disorder, which is also called Super Achievers’ Disease. Then there is, of course, depression that an entrepreneur faces when he goes through the down-phase of his business because they can’t show vulnerability,” she explains. According to a recent national mental health survey, over 150 million people in India are in need of serious mental health care interventions. Despite the fact that a large percent of our population suffers from some form of mental illness, mental health issues are considered a social taboo in our country and remain largely ignored. Talking about the same, Dr Shweta Sharma, Clinical Psychologist, Columbia Asia Gurgaon, says, “Our culture is such that a person juggles multiple relationships – social, familial, professional. He/ she has to deal with immense expectations and criticism, and that just increase the stress levels.” A study of 1990-2016 published in The Lancet indicates that India accounts for 37% of suicides in women and 24% of suicides in men. Individual 15-39 years old account for the largest number of suicides in India. There has been a 40% increase in suicides in india between 1990 and 2016. Addressing the issue of increasing suicide rate, Kamna Chhibber, Clinical Psychologist, HOD, Mental Health and Behavioral Sciences, Fortis Healthcare, states that the reasons for someone to think of suicide can be many. It is usually not a decision taken in a moment. The individual typically does not see a solution to their problems, struggles to share and express what is happening which can prompt him to take such a step.” It is important to know that 90% of those who commit suicide had an undiagnosed mental health illness and 70% of these had an undiagnosed depression. Dr Prakriti Poddar, expert in Mental Health, HR, Corporate and Education upliftment, Managing Trustee of the Poddar Foundation feels that creating awareness, sensitising people to understand clinical conditions, and accept them is very important. Simultaneously it is essential to reach out for help – making them comfortable to talk to the close ones, reaching out to experts in extreme cases, or calling helplines if needed.last_img read more

More businesses are mellowing out over hiring pot smokers

More businesses are mellowing out over hiring pot smokers

first_imgWASHINGTON – FPI Management, a property company in California, wants to hire dozens of people. Factories from New Hampshire to Michigan need workers. Hotels in Las Vegas are desperate to fill jobs.Those employers and many others are quietly taking what once would have been a radical step: They’re dropping marijuana from the drug tests they require of prospective employees. Marijuana testing — a fixture at large American employers for at least 30 years — excludes too many potential workers, experts say, at a time when filling jobs is more challenging than it’s been in nearly two decades.“It has come out of nowhere,” said Michael Clarkson, head of the drug testing practice at Ogletree Deakins, a law firm. “I have heard from lots of clients things like, ‘I can’t staff the third shift and test for marijuana.’”Though still in its early stages, the shift away from marijuana testing appears likely to accelerate. More states are legalizing cannabis for recreational use; Michigan could become the 10th state to do so in November. Missouri appears on track to become the 30th state to allow medical pot use.And medical marijuana users in Massachusetts , Connecticut and Rhode Island have won lawsuits in the past year against companies that rescinded job offers or fired workers because of positive tests for cannabis. Before last year, courts had always ruled in favour of employers.The Trump administration also may be softening its resistance to legal marijuana. Labor Secretary Alexander Acosta suggested at a congressional hearing last month that employers should take a “step back” on drug testing.“We have all these Americans that are looking to work,” Acosta said. “Are we aligning our … drug testing policies with what’s right for the workforce?”There is no definitive data on how many companies conduct drug tests, though the Society for Human Resource Management found in a survey that 57 per cent do so. Nor is there any recent data on how many have dropped marijuana from mandatory drug testing.But interviews with hiring executives, employment lawyers and agencies that help employers fill jobs indicate that dropping marijuana testing is among the steps more companies are taking to expand their pool of applicants to fill a near-record level of openings.Businesses are hiring more people without high school diplomas, for example, to the point where the unemployment rate for non-high school graduates has sunk more than a full percentage point in the past year to 5.5 per cent. That’s the steepest such drop for any educational group over that time. On Friday, the government is expected to report another robust jobs report for April.Excluding marijuana from testing marks the first major shift in workplace drug policies since employers began regularly screening applicants in the late 1980s. They did so after a federal law required that government contractors maintain drug-free workplaces. Many private businesses adopted their own mandatory drug testing of applicants.Most businesses that have dropped marijuana tests continue to screen for cocaine, opiates, heroin and other drugs. But James Reidy, an employment lawyer in New Hampshire, says companies are thinking harder about the types of jobs that should realistically require marijuana tests. If a manufacturing worker, for instance, isn’t driving a forklift or operating industrial machinery, employers may deem a marijuana test unnecessary.“Employers are saying, ‘We have a thin labour pool,’ “Reidy said. ” ‘So are we going to test and exclude a whole group of people? Or can we assume some risks, as long as they’re not impaired at work?’”Yet many companies are reluctant to acknowledge publicly that they’ve dropped marijuana testing.“This is going to become the new don’t ask, don’t tell,” Reidy said.In most states that have legalized marijuana, like Colorado, businesses can still, if they wish, fire workers who test positive. On the other hand, Maine, which also legalized the drug, became the first state to bar companies from firing or refusing to hire someone for using marijuana outside work.Companies in labour-intensive industries — hoteliers and home health care providers and employers with many warehouse and assembly jobs — are most likely to drop marijuana testing. By contrast, businesses that contract with the government or that are in regulated industries, like air travel, or that have safety concerns involving machinery, are continuing marijuana tests, employment lawyers say. Federal regulations require the testing of pilots, train operators and other key transportation workers.Dropping marijuana testing is more common among employers in the nine states, along with the District of Columbia, that have legalized pot for recreational use. An additional 20 states allow marijuana for medical use only. But historically low unemployment is driving change even where pot remains illegal.After the Drug-Free Workplace Act was enacted in 1988, amid concerns about cocaine use, drug testing spread to most large companies. All Fortune 500 companies now engage in some form of drug testing, according to Barry Sample, a senior director at Quest Diagnostics, one of the largest testing firms.In Denver, in a state with just 3 per cent unemployment, 10 per cent of employers that screen for drugs had dropped marijuana as of 2016, according to a survey by the Employers Council, which provides corporate legal and human resources services.“It’s because unemployment is virtually non-existent” in Colorado, said Curtis Graves, a lawyer at the council. “People cannot afford to take a hard line against off-duty marijuana usage if they want to hire.”That’s particularly true in Colorado’s resort areas, where hotels and ski lifts are heavily staffed with young workers, Graves said: “They can lose their jobs and walk across the street and get another one.”FPI, a property-management firm in San Francisco that employs 2,900 around the country, from leasing managers to groundskeepers, has dozens of jobs listed on online boards. Its ads say applicants must pass a “full background check and drug screening.”But it adds, “As it relates to marijuana use, FPI will consider any applicable state law when dispositioning test results.”FPI didn’t respond to requests for comment, which isn’t unusual given that companies that have dropped marijuana tests aren’t exactly billboarding their decisions. Most still seek to maintain drug-free workplaces and still test for harder drugs.“They’re pretty hush-hush about it,” Graves said.AutoNation, which operates dealerships in 17 states, is one of the few that have gone public. The company stopped testing for marijuana about a year ago. Marc Cannon, a company spokesman, said it did so mostly in response to evolving public attitudes. But it also feared losing prospective employees.“The labour market has tightened up,” Cannon said.AutoNation heard from other business leaders, Cannon said. They said things like, “‘We’re doing the same thing; we just didn’t want to share it publicly.’”Relaxed attitudes among employers are spreading from states where recreational marijuana is legal to those where it’s lawful only for medical use, such as Michigan and New Hampshire.Janis Petrini, who owns an Express Employment staffing agency in Grand Rapids, Michigan, says that with the area’s unemployment rate below 3 per cent, employers are growing desperate. Some are willing to ignore the results of drug tests performed by Express, which still screens for marijuana and won’t place workers who test positive.“We have had companies say to us, ‘We don’t worry about that as much as we used to,’” Petrini said. “We say, ‘OK, well, we are still following our standards.’ “One of Reidy’s clients, a manufacturer in New Hampshire, has dropped marijuana testing because it draws some workers from neighbouring Massachusetts and Maine, which have legalized pot for recreational use. Another client, which runs assisted living facilities from Florida to Maine, has stopped testing its housekeeping and food service workers for marijuana.The stigma surrounding marijuana use is eroding, compounding pressure on employers to stop testing. Sixty-four per cent of Americans support legalizing pot, a Gallup poll found, the highest percentage in a half-century of surveys.In Las Vegas, where recreational use is legal, marijuana dispensaries “look almost like Apple stores,” said Thoran Towler, CEO of the Nevada Association of Employers.Many high-tech companies have been moving from California to Nevada to escape California’s high costs, and they’re seeking workers. Towler says the most common question from his 400 member executives is, “Where do I find employees?”He estimates that roughly one-tenth of his group’s members have stopped testing for marijuana out of frustration.“They say, ‘I have to get people on the casino floor or make the beds, and I can’t worry about what they’re doing in their spare time,’” Towler said.___Contact Chris Rugaber on Twitter at http://Twitter.com/ChrisRugaber___Follow AP’s marijuana coverage here: https://apnews.com/tag/LegalMarijuanalast_img read more

Transparency in payments price

Transparency in payments price

first_imgThe importance of the flow of capital into the power and housing sectors in India cannot be overemphasised. Recent developments in both sectors once again bring to the fore the critical issues of effective payment mechanisms and price transparency as vital factors in boosting the economy. Let us examine the issue in the two sectors separately. The Supreme Court striking down the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) circular giving stressed power companies more time to find resolutions outside the bankruptcy court has started debates around paths that are ideal for resolving woes of the power sector. Amid the din and noise, it is essential to not lose sight of the core issues at hand, i.e., the late and, in many cases, non-payment of dues by state-run power distribution companies (discoms) in India. Also Read – A special kind of bondWhile not all the stressed assets of thermal power sector are attributable to non-payment issues from discoms, delayed payments are significant contributors to the mess. Late payments lead to debt servicing issues and major negative-working capital problems. The most critical aspect of the problem is that not just thermal power sector assets but energy sector assets in general, including the high-growth renewable energy sector, will face identical or similar issues in the foreseeable future unless the delayed payments issue is gradually sorted out. Also Read – Insider threat managementFor instance, in the solar energy sector, which is known for its high capital intensity with the majority of the capital expenditure required upfront, the entire business model is highly dependent on the power purchase agreement (PPA) being honoured. Given the fixed-income nature of payments, it is only natural that debt is utilised to fund a significant component of the business. Delays in payments from discoms will lead to solar energy developers facing debt-servicing issues and therefore, eventually adding to the non-performing assets (NPAs). The issues around debt-servicing and NPAs has serious ramifications from a cost of capital perspective. An improved payment mechanism, timely payment of interest coupons and lower-risk have the cascading positive effect of the lower cost of capital for any given sector. Hence, as the cost of capital in general declines, energy projects with a lower return on asset become viable. Therefore, a lowering of the cost of capital in the energy sector provides a significant boost to asset creation. The reverse holds true: when risk perceptions amongst investors for a sector rise, they reduce the flow of capital to the sector and thus render projects unviable. Resolving issues around discom payments is critical for India’s push towards renewable energy. While solutions will require some hard decisions to be made, the government must push in the right direction. Most importantly, the new sunrise sectors such as renewable energy must learn lessons from the thermal power sector of avoiding payment delays, excessive leverage and unsustainable tariffs. Issues in the thermal power sector provide a template of the pitfalls to avoid in energy sectors across the spectrum. The second sector of our concern here that has seen interesting developments of late is housing finance. Given the recent liquidity crunch faced by the Non-Banking Financial Companies (NBFCs), the news that the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) has set up a panel to review the development of the housing finance securitisation market is a welcome step. The broader aim of the panel is to facilitate the flow of high-quality capital to the NBFC sector to boost credit creation in India. Of all the steps towards the standardisation of the housing finance securitisation market, one that deserves most attention is ensuring a mechanism that allows for mark-to-market valuation of the securitised loans. In the long-run for the housing finance securitisation market to indeed facilitate the flow of sizeable quantities of capital and yet avoid major mishaps during periods of credit busts, access to constant pricing information in the market is vital. Standardisation of the pricing of debt-securities can be more challenging than that for equity-based securities. The difficulty arises from the fact that debt-based instruments are issued for multiple tenures as opposed to equity that does not have a maturity date. Hence, standardisation is harder in the case of debt-instruments. Lessons from credit markets in the developed economies in creating credit-based indices that assist the market in pricing loans in the secondary market are crucial. Going forward we must not lose focus on the core issues of “ensuring payment mechanisms” and “price transparency” to boost investor sentiment regarding the crucial power and housing markets in India.
