alex williams Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… Tags:#Analysis#cloud#events At dinner the other night, John Squire the chief strategy officer for CoreMetrics told me that his team is building an API and embarking on that windy path in search of the the communities where those elusive programmers can be discovered.What’s a good way to attract developers? That was the basic question Squire posed. It was the end of the day at IBM Impact at the Venetian Hotel in Las Vegas and I had heard a lot about SOA, cloud standards efforts and the demand for better automation but hardly a word about developers.Before I left IBM Impact, I took some time to listen to a Forbes pannel session about trends in the corporate world. I asked about the developer equation. How do developers fit in?Ray Wang of Constellation Research used the major mobile OS providers to make his point.He basically said that Apple has a moderated app store for the IOS. Get approved and you can get paid for your app. Google Android lets any app be part of its app ecosystem. Microsoft is watching Apple and Google.In summary, Apple, at least for now, has the best business model. And that’s why developers are attrracted to it. Apple provides developers with a path for making money.After chatting with Wang, I made my way to MIX11. I ran into Michael Cote of RedMonk and asked him about what Wang said. He agreed that the concept at Apple is that a developer can make a six figure income. The reality is that few actually make that kind of money. But the other part of this is the fun involved. You have to like working on computers. It’s an investment for developers. A MacBook Pro, iPhone, iPad and any number of other accessories can be costly. So, it better be fun.Developers do love those beautiful machines. But they also love the work. So as much as the business drivers are important so is the lifestyle.You can see that in the excitement for the Kinect SDK that debuted yesterday at MIX. Kinect is like a door that opens us to the world of gestures, the Internet of Things and augmented reality. In Wednesday’s keynote, we saw how a recliner could be made to move by waving your hands. Developers get Kinect. It’s fun, a bit mind boggling and the user base is scaling fast. That’s an equation for big success in the developer world. Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting Related Posts A Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai… Morten Rand-Hendriksen writes:The Kinect not only makes your entire body an input device but also has the capability of taking voice commands meaning with the right application in the background it can do away with any other user interface. I can’t quite put into words how exciting this is. And to kick off the innovation every attendee at the conference got their very own Kinect to take home. Pretty cool. So expect an avalanche of crazy new user experiences using the Kinect once the developer tools are released in May.John Sheehan is Twilio’s developer evangelist. I ran into him at MIX. He gave a different perspective. He calls it the hero factor:I don’t think there necessarily has to be a busiess driver. There’s a hero factor. The CEO gets its when you show how the phone buzzes. That hero making creates value for people. You (the developer) are going to be asked to do new things. We want people to build fun stuff.Now it is Thursday morning and I am back home, thinking how having fun, making money and beautiful machines fit with the developer community.The CoreMetrics story is a good one. It’s about aggregating retail data, providing a unified data analytics methodology for improving marketing efforts. Now, it’s just a matter of convincing developers that the business model is relevant and to some extent, fun to use and apply.Any thoughts?

Jamaica’s Ambassador to the United States, Professor Stephen Vasciannie, says the Government of Jamaica is determined to stamp out the lottery scam.The Ambassador, who was addressing the annual scholarship and award gala of the Jamaican- American Bar Association’s (JABA) Northeast Chapter on Saturday (March 16) in Queens, New York, noted that the Government has implemented several measures to combat the illicit activity, which is primarily rooted in the western end of the island.He said that a comprehensive five-point plan has been rolled out, which includes public education and awareness, increased enforcement, enactment of new laws, strengthening of judicial and procedural rules, along with restitution for victims.The public awareness effort seeks to sensitise Jamaicans about the dangers of scamming and to encourage persons to report any such activity in their community.The Ambassador also noted that the United States (US) and Jamaican authorities are working closely to weed out the scammers.Ambassador Vasciannie, in the meantime, commended members of the JABA Northeast Chapter for providing legal services to many Jamaicans, as well as scholarships to Jamaican students and those of Jamaican parentage studying at the Norman Manley Law School and at American institutions.Prime Minister, the Most Hon. Portia Simpson-Miller, in a message, also hailed, the members of the association, noting that they have demonstrated that “they are not only concerned with their own achievements and successes, but are fully committed to the building of their homeland and improving the lives of our people”. She said that the Government is fully committed to taking the measures required for the sustained development and long-term prosperity of the nation, and pointed to the need for greater partnerships, renewed commitment and support from all Jamaicans, sectors and organisations, both at home and in the Diaspora.In her remarks, President of the JABA Northeast Chapter, Joan Pinnock, said the organisation has been successful in preventing a number of deportations, and returning one person to the US, who was deported.The 2013 Magistrate Award was presented to Jamaican Judge Stephen Drummond, who sits on the bench in Freeport, Connecticut, while the Barrister Award went to Jamaican Attorney Wayne Bennett, who practises in Philadelphia. The Jamaican Community Award went to Chairman of the Independence Celebration Foundation, Paulette Willoughby.The three recipients of the 2013 JABA education scholarships were: Shantel Smart, who attends Quinnipiac University of Law; Kellsie Barton from New York University School of Law; and Trichana Gray from the Norman Manley Law School.Among those in attendance were Jamaica’s Consul General to New York, Herman Lamont; Former New York Councilwoman, Una Clarke; Founder of the JABA Miami chapter, Don James; and Jamaica’s Honorary Consul to Pennsylvania, Dr. Alston Meade.The JABA Northeast Chapter, launched in January 2009, consists of eight attorneys of Jamaican birth or heritage, who practise in thetri-state region of New York, New Jersey and Connecticut. The not-for-profit association provides pro-bono legal services to reduce the number of Jamaican nationals deported each year, and grants funds to Jamaican students, who are pursuing law degrees. It is seeking to establish the JABA-NE Legal Defense Fund (JLDF) to assist persons in need of legal representation.By Derrick Scott, JIS Reporter

MONTREAL – A Quebec mall says it is dropping a controversial decision to ban people under the age of 18 unless accompanied by a parent.Le Carrefour du Cap shopping centre, about halfway between Quebec City and Montreal in Trois-Rivieres, said in a statement Thursday that it was ending the practice despite what it calls “escalating problems regarding vandalism, theft and misbehaviour.”It said the “temporary measure” was driven by theft, increased vandalism, bullying against employees and clients, the use of bikes and skateboards inside the centre and other factors.The mall also said in a statement issued through a public relations firm that it wanted to apologize “for employing a measure without realizing the impact it could have on teenagers and their parents.”“The intention was to swiftly ensure security for all clients and all retailers, in face of an increasingly important level of problematic situations,” the statement said.The shopping centre says it will meet with local police and school board officials on May 7 to discuss solutions to vandalism, theft and misbehaviour at the centre.Trois-Rivieres police spokesman Luc Mongrain said Wednesday he was surprised by the mall’s decision because he doesn’t consider the location to be particularly problematic.He said officers were called to respond to loitering complaints about 10 times in the last year but did not make any arrests.
Bayer HealthCare, the makers of Bayer Aspirin, WomenHeart: The National Coalition for Women with Heart Disease, and actress, singer and author Vanessa Williams today announce their partnership to launch Handbags & Hearts, a national campaign that leverages the link between women and their handbags – the one item they do not leave home without – and urges women to take the Handbags & Hearts pledge to carry aspirin at all times to be prepared for a sudden heart attack.Being prepared by carrying aspirin, knowing the symptoms of heart attack and not putting off calling 911 if a heart attack is suspected, can be the difference between life and death.More than 250,000 women die of a heart attack each year, yet most women’s handbags are better prepared for a broken nail (55%) or bad hair day (36%) than a heart attack (17%). In fact, in a recent survey, less than one-quarter of women said they carry aspirin in their handbag. When taken during a suspected heart attack and for 30 days thereafter, aspirin has been shown to reduce the risk of death by 23 percent and lessen a heart attack’s damaging effects to the heart muscle.“I am passionate about this campaign and its message, as both of my grandmothers died from heart attacks at a young age. As Mother’s Day nears, I’m joining Bayer HealthCare and WomenHeart to urge all women to make their heart health a priority and to take the Handbags & Hearts pledge to carry aspirin in their handbags at all times and learn the symptoms of a heart attack in women. I took the pledge and have encouraged all the important women in my life to do the same,” said Vanessa Williams, currently starring in “The Trip to Bountiful” on Broadway. “Calling 911 if you think you may be experiencing a heart attack, and having aspirin on hand if needed, can help save lives, yet so many women aren’t doing this.”Saving Hearts, One Handbag at a Time For every pledge to make over a handbag by adding potentially life-saving aspirin, and every share of the message with friends made on HandbagsAndHearts.com, Bayer HealthCare will make donations to WomenHeart ($1 for pledge, $2 for share) up to a total of $200,000 to support WomenHeart in serving the 42 million American women living with or at risk for heart disease. WomenHeart is a national network of women living with heart disease, aligned with a scientific advisory council composed of many of the nation’s top cardiologists and other healthcare experts, all committed to helping women live longer, healthier lives.In addition, consumers can also visit www.HandbagsAndHearts.com to order a Heart Attack Preparedness Kit for a $5 donation to WomenHeart. The Kit includes aspirin and tips for what to do in case of a sudden heart attack.Women Don’t Know the Signs of Heart Attack When it comes to heart disease, men and women are not always created equal. In a recent online survey of 1,000 women, most had limited knowledge of heart attack symptoms different to them such as nausea (57%) and cold sweats (64%). And while most women (61%) surveyed said they now fear they are likely to have a heart attack in their lifetime, many said they did not ask their doctor about their “overall heart health” at their last physical.“I see many women in my practice who are busy taking care of everyone but themselves. Don’t be passive about your health; ask your doctor about your coronary risks and a plan you can put in place to address those risks – before you have a heart attack,” said Tracy Stevens, MD, FACC, member of WomenHeart’s national Scientific Advisory Council, WomenHeart’s advisory group of the nation’s leading experts on women’s heart health. “And take the time now to know the signs of a heart attack in women. If you suspect a heart attack, calling 911 and taking aspirin as directed by a physician can be life-saving. Trust your gut – if something doesn’t seem right, don’t delay. Taken immediately at the onset of heart attack, aspirin can prevent the formation of additional blood clots that block the blood flow through the arteries and can reduce the risk of death. Carrying aspirin in case of emergency is a no-brainer. It’s one small change that can make all the difference.”To learn more about Handbags & Hearts and to take the pledge, visit www.HandbagsAndHearts.com.

Toronto FC’s Sebastian Giovinco has backed his former club Juventus to win their first Champions League title since 1996.The Italian giants signed Cristiano Ronaldo from Real Madrid with a clear intention of European glory after becoming runners-up twice in the last four seasons of the Champions League.The ex-Bianconeri man Giovinco feels that this could well be Juve’s season.“I think it might be their season,” the 31-year-old told Malta today.Fiorentina owner: “Ribery played better than Ronaldo!” Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Fiorentina owner Rocco Commisso was left gushing over Franck Ribery’s performance against Juventus, which he rates above that of even Cristiano Ronaldo’s.“Moreover, in the summer they have improved by signing important players. They’re clear favourites to win the Scudetto as well.“Juventus have gained more awareness of their own resources. The arrival of Cristiano Ronaldo, who knows how to win in Europe, is undoubtedly a major help.”“Juventus are top of Serie A table and will be facing Valencia in their last Champions League group stage encounter.”
