Dacres maintains form, Wright seeks World Champs mark

first_imgFedrick Dacres continued his fine form at last Saturday’s Last Chance Throws meet inside the National Stadium. With only throwers in the audience, Dacres launched his discus 66.90m. He was one of four men to pass the 60m mark.Chad Wright, who is chasing the World Championship qualifying mark of 65m, took the lead with a first round effort of 60.04m. Dacres got going in round two, with 62.39, and did his best in the next round. For good measure, he got a 65.52m throw on the fourth round.Noting afterwards that his throws have come in open fields, Dacres said: “It shows I’m in good shape because I’m not really a stadium person, not this Stadium, but I can give you constant 65s – over 65 – now so it shows I’m in good shape and I guess I’m strong.”Traves Smikle moved past Wright into second place with a fourth-round toss of 63.27m. Wright’s best was 60.68m.Basil Bingham was fourth at 60.01m.HUNT THE MARKWright said he is heading to Europe. Though he was third at the JAAA National Senior Athletics Championships, he needs to match or surpass 65m before July 23 to join Dacres and Smikle on the Jamaican team to the upcoming World Championships. “I got into a couple meets there, so I’m going to hunt the mark,” he resolved.The determined Wright promised: “I have to find it, wherever it might be, I have to find it.”Meet director Michael Vassell explains what the new meet was staged to give athletes a chance to attain the World qualifying standard. “It’s really the fact that there are so many people who are close”, he explained, “and we need to provide as many opportunities as possible and, I mean, it’s really a sign that throwing itself is growing.”He had high praise for Dacres, who was in the 2015 World Championship final. “Dacres never had to throw this evening, but he came to support,” he continued, “and that is what I think is going to drive throws, that our local heroes will always be here.”- HLlast_img read more

Text and Banner Ads on Amazon: Has the World Gone Mad?

first_img8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Market There were two sections with advertisements, one with contextual text ads and the other one with banner advertising.Here is the text advertising that I saw: Yet, Wall Street is happy. As we discussed here earlier, likely because investors finally grasped the cleverAmazon Web Services play: The first advertising is a call to win a Xerox printer, which is not really all that relevant. The secondone appears to be from a competitor who is also selling digital cameras online. The ad tells me not topay too much and that I could save up to 75% on a digital camera.The display ads shown on this page changed on each reload. Below are a couple of them. The first one isan ad for the Westin Spa and the second is for the upcoming Microsoft Sync product. Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… alex iskold 1 This is for RealThe contextual advertising on Amazon is provided by ClickRiver. There are two links next to the ads, one is acall to advertise on Amazon and the second one explains what the advertising is. “Sponsored links are advertisements that Amazon.com provides for you. When you click on a sponsored link, we get revenue. All sponsored links are matched to your recent search queries or the content of the page. For example, if you search for “Bruce Springsteen” or view pages about Bruce Springsteen, the sponsored links may point to sites that sell tickets to his concerts or provide information about him. Sponsored links are always clearly labeled. Generating additional revenue from sponsored links allows us to offer lower prices to you — something we are dedicated to doing in every way we can.”Ads Just Don’t Make SenseI am definitely not a guru when it comes to online advertising, but these ads seem to defy common sense. First the text ads leaddirectly to competitor pages. They are advertised as pay-per-click so Amazon gets paid only if the user clicks.Even though clicked-on ads open in a new tab, the user still leaves the Amazon product page. How likelyare users to come back? The user maybe enticed by another offer, or become distracted and just forget about the open Amazon window. How much does Amazon need to generate per-click to make up the margin on potentially lost camera sale? It seems improbablethat these ads are worth as much as the sale.The banner ads are different, because they are random. Why would I click on the Westin Spa ad on this page?It is likely that these ads are not per-click, but rather per impression. If thats the case, then this makes moresense, because Amazon just gets paid on each page load. However, it begs a question – is it worth it to show theseand damage Amazon’s reputation? As a faithful consumer, I come to Amazon because of its brand, reliabilityand user experience. Seeing irrelevant, and even annoying advertising does not strengthen the relationship,instead it damages loyalty.Perhaps the most mind boggling thing about the ads is that they are integrated along with the rest of the content.Of course text ads make sense in search engines, but Amazon’s product pages are different. These pages used to contain100% native content about the product, related products (sold by Amazon) and customers. The text and banner ads on Amazon’s pages donot look native – they are just out of place.Amazon Traffic is Down and Stock is UpPerhaps the ads are just an experiment – I hope they are not permanent. But overall, why did Amazontweak the pages again? Looking at the latest iteration, it is not really better than the one we covered in the beginning of this year.The product pages seem to loose order. The mix of product information, related products, forums, tags and on top of it ads,is just way too much. Amazon is already an awesome brand, it does not need to try so hard to sell the product.A shorter, cleaner page would probably be more effective than this complicated mix.Yet, something is definitely up. Looking at the traffic graph over the past year, we see decline in page views: I was shoppingfor a digital camera this weekend and my first stop was naturally Amazon. While browsing pages I noticed the new look and feel:There is even more information on each page, the reviews are displayed in a new way and tags are being leveraged more. Thesechanges ranged from useful to interesting to perhaps a bit too much. But there was one thing that was very surprising. The Amazon pages feature text and banner advertising. Why would the world biggest online retailer includelinks in its pages that divert customers from transaction? Amazon has invested so much in itsrecommendation engine that the company has no rivalwhen it comes to slicing and recombining product and consumer behavior information to drive transactions.So why would Amazon include low relevancy contextual and completely non-relevant banner ads on its pages?This was a mystery to me, so I wrote this post as an attempt to make sense of it.Text and Banner Ads in Product PagesLets take a look at what exactly Amazon is featuring on its pages. I looked at the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-T7 camera: ConclusionAccording to an article in Always On Magazine, in 2006 the online advertising market grew to $30 billion and willdouble by 2010. That is a mind boggling number, to say the least. Everyone wants a piece of this market. For startups, the answer to how are you going to make money, has for the most part been advertising and people have generally believed it. The opportunity is big, but advertising like everything else, cannot defy common sense.First, advertisers will not spend a lot of money unless there is ROI. The ads need to make sense. Theyneed to be tailored by context, time, and individual. The text and banner ads on Amazon defy common sense. I hope that we can get out of the senseless ad-craze and recognize that just like our advertising technology evolves,so do the consumers. People are not going click unless it makes sense.What is your take on these Amazon ads? How are they rationalized and justifiable? It would be great tohear from readers who really know their way around online advertising world.

Open Beta of Google Friend Connect Coming Soon?

first_imgWhy Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… Just about half a year ago, Google announced a limited beta of Friend Connect, which allows site owners to display OpenSocial based gadgets on their sites and site visitors to sign in to these social gadgets with their OpenID, AIM, Yahoo, or Google accounts.Amit Agarwal has been keeping a close eye on Friend Connect since it was announced and he assumes that the service could go live pretty soon. Just last week, Google published a new YouTube video geared towards users and now the support site for Friend Connect is available as well.Some of the gadgets Google currently supplies are a comment wall and a ratings gadget. Friend Connect will also work with third-party applications built by the OpenSocial developer community. To enable these gadgets, all a site owner has to do is to copy and paste some code snippets into their site’s HTML.Google Profiles Meets MyBlogLogLately, Google has started to put a lot more emphasis on its own user profiles, and Friend Connect makes good use of them. Once you join a Friend Connect enabled site, other users will be able to see information from your profile, though you can set your privacy settings to disallow others from seeing your profile pages as well. In many ways, this is quite similar to MyBlogLog.It’s Social, But is it Open? When Friend Connect was first announced, we were concerned about the direction Google was taking with this implementation of the OpenSocial standards. Also, as we noted in our earlier posts, the Friend Connect apps are displayed in an iframe, which is basically a separate web page inside another web page. Because of this, these apps are black boxes that live on your site, but don’t allow the site owners to really leverage the data from these apps on their own sites.It is interesting to note that the latest Google video about Friend Connect still prominently features Facebook as a supported service, even though Facebook has decided to eschew OpenSocial in favor of its own platform. The help pages for Friend Connect don’t feature a list of supported services yet.BenefitsThere are, however, also some clear benefits to using Friend Connect. Through this service, a site owner might be able to create more user loyalty and enthusiastic readers can evangelize your site by publishing their activity on it to their own social network. Visitors will also be able to invite their friends on social networks to join your site.In an early press release about Friend Connect, Google stated that this initiative was about helping the ‘long tail’ of sites to become more social. While we might worry about  some of the details of Google’s implementation, this by itself is a worthy cause, and it will be interesting to see how site owners will implement Friend Connect once it becomes publically available. 8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Market Tags:#Google#NYT#Product Reviews#web frederic lardinoiscenter_img A Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai… Related Posts Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hostinglast_img read more

3 Ways Modern Retailers Can Minimize Enterprise Mobility Risks

first_imgIn an effort to give employees access to corporate resources from anytime and anywhere, an increasing number of retailers are introducing Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) programs. These programs have become an important cost-cutting measure for employers, as retailers no longer have to pay for devices employees already have or corporate resources they won’t use.But this cost-effective solution doesn’t come without challenges. One of the major issues with allowing employees to introduce their own technology is how to maintain an adequate level of security, especially if workers are using weak passwords, accessing unsecured Wi-Fi networks, leaving phones and tablets unattended, or never updating their applications.Here are three ways retailers can minimize enterprise mobility risks brought on by BYOD:- Sponsor – 1. Introduce cyber security training – Whether it’s a loss prevention associate or manager, every employee requires some level of cyber security training. These training sessions should be focused on providing workers with information on the risks associated with accessing schedules, training materials, and other data on personal and company devices, so they can beware of current threats. It is critical for these trainings to provide clear linkage between how these issues impact their work day and personal lives.2. Invest in layers of security – While retail cyber security training can help lessen the likelihood of an attack, it isn’t a foolproof way to keep information safe. Retailers need to invest in security solutions that will guard against human error. An enterprise-level identity and access management solution that integrates multi-factor authentication can help retailers secure app access across corporate desktops, web and mobile, so they don’t need to worry about information being compromised from one device to the next, even if these devices are not owned by the company.3. Establish a security policy – Retailers need to introduce a data security policy that works for their entire organization. If the program is too rigid, employees are likely to subvert or ignore the guidelines. This goes back to the concept of embracing BYOD rather than fighting it. Along these lines, it is especially important that these policies be customized for a mobile workforce, which means the processes need to provide a reasonable alternative for those who are constantly on the go.This post was originally published in 2017 and was updated August 20, 2018.

Proposed Regs Clarify Use of Truncated TINs on Forms W-2 (NPRM REG-105004-16)

first_imgThe IRS has issued proposed regulations that permit employers to shorten employees’ Social Security numbers (SSNs) on employee copies of Forms W-2 , Wage and Tax Statement. The proposed regulations also clarify how the truncation rules apply to Forms W-2, add an illustrating example, delete obsolete provisions and update cross references in related regulations.Truncated TINsThe Protecting Americans from Tax Hikes (PATH) Act of 2015 replaced the requirement that employers include SSNs on employees’ copies of Forms W2 with the requirement to use an “identifying number.” However, the rules currently prohibit using truncated TINs (TTINs) on any document required to be filed with or furnished to the IRS. In addition, TTINS may not be used if a statute or IRS guidance specifically requires the use of an SSN.Proposed RulesUnder the proposed rules:—Employers can shorten SSNs on employees’ copies of Forms W-2. However, numbers cannot be truncated on a copy that is filed with the Social Security Administration (SSA).—Employers can shorten employees’ SSNs on employees’ copies of Forms W-2 for payment of wages in the form of group-term life insurance.—A payee’s SSN cannot be shortened on a statement furnished to the employer of an payee who received third-party sick pay. However, employers can truncate payees’ SSNs on payee copies of Forms W-2 that report the sick pay.—Truncation is allowed if a statute or IRS guidance that specifically requires use of a SSN, individual taxpayer identification number (ITIN), adoption taxpayer identification number (ATIN), or employer identification number (EIN) also specifically states that the taxpayer identifying number may be truncated.—Truncation is not allowed on any document required to be filed with or furnished to the SSA under the internal revenue laws.Effective/Applicability DateThe proposed regulations will be effective when these rules are adopted as final in the Federal Register.  The proposed regulations will not apply to Forms W-2 required to be furnished before January 1, 2019. However, they will apply to statements required to be filed and furnished after December 31, 2018.Comments The IRS request comments on all aspects of these proposed regulations. A public hearing may be scheduled if requested in writing by any person that timely submits written comments. Written or electronic comments and requests for a public hearing must be received by December 18, 2017.Submissions should be sent to: CC:PA:LPD:PR (REG-105004-16), Room 5203, Internal Revenue Service, P.O. Box 7604, Ben Franklin Station, Washington, D.C. 20044.

Pasteur president forced to retire

first_img“Obviously, I’m disappointed,” says Christian Bréchot, “but I respect the board’s decision.”  Seba/ZUMA Press/Newscom Pasteur president forced to retire The governing statutes of the foundation that runs Pasteur stipulate that a president must not be older than 64 when he or she is appointed or reappointed to the job. Bréchot, who will turn 65 in July, had hoped that the board would change the rules to make an extension possible. “Four years is very short,” he says.The board made clear it didn’t plan to do so last May, citing potential legal and financial complications. But Bréchot enjoys support among Pasteur scientists for making the institute a more attractive place to work, broadening its research scope, and strengthening its international network. A letter signed by the heads of the institute’s 11 research departments praised his “leadership, vision, dynamism and full commitment.” To protest the board’s decision, Pasteur’s General Meeting—a parliament-style body with about 100 members that usually meets once a year—rejected the institute’s annual report last June, a move that triggered the board’s dissolution.The new board had shown itself more sympathetic to Bréchot’s wish. During a meeting on 24 January, two-thirds of its members voted for a compromise that would not raise the age limit but would allow the board to extend a president’s term by 2 years, a Pasteur spokesperson says. That still fell short of the 75% majority needed to change the statutes, however.The compromise was “an intelligent solution,” says Bréchot, if only because it would have allowed more time to search for a successor. While heartened by the support at last year’s General Meeting, Bréchot says he does not expect another uprising at the next such gathering, slated for June. “Nobody wants that to happen again,” he says.center_img “Will you still need me, will you still feed me, when I’m 64?” The Beatles once asked. In the case of Christian Bréchot, the 64-year-old president of the Pasteur Institute in Paris, the answer is in: nope. Capping an 8-month crisis at the institute, Pasteur’s board of directors has decided not to change the strict age limit for its top job, denying Bréchot the extension he was hoping for.The decision was taken on 24 January and explained to Pasteur staff yesterday in an internal memo obtained by ScienceInsider. In it, the board announces that Bréchot will step down after his 4-year stint ends on 30 September 2017, and says that the search for a successor is on.”Obviously, I’m disappointed,” Bréchot says, “but I respect the board’s decision.” Nevertheless, he says, the age limit is “ridiculous.”Sign up for our daily newsletterGet more great content like this delivered right to you!Country *AfghanistanAland IslandsAlbaniaAlgeriaAndorraAngolaAnguillaAntarcticaAntigua and BarbudaArgentinaArmeniaArubaAustraliaAustriaAzerbaijanBahamasBahrainBangladeshBarbadosBelarusBelgiumBelizeBeninBermudaBhutanBolivia, Plurinational State ofBonaire, Sint Eustatius and SabaBosnia and HerzegovinaBotswanaBouvet IslandBrazilBritish Indian Ocean TerritoryBrunei DarussalamBulgariaBurkina FasoBurundiCambodiaCameroonCanadaCape VerdeCayman IslandsCentral African RepublicChadChileChinaChristmas IslandCocos (Keeling) IslandsColombiaComorosCongoCongo, The Democratic Republic of theCook IslandsCosta RicaCote D’IvoireCroatiaCubaCuraçaoCyprusCzech RepublicDenmarkDjiboutiDominicaDominican RepublicEcuadorEgyptEl SalvadorEquatorial GuineaEritreaEstoniaEthiopiaFalkland Islands (Malvinas)Faroe IslandsFijiFinlandFranceFrench GuianaFrench PolynesiaFrench Southern TerritoriesGabonGambiaGeorgiaGermanyGhanaGibraltarGreeceGreenlandGrenadaGuadeloupeGuatemalaGuernseyGuineaGuinea-BissauGuyanaHaitiHeard Island and Mcdonald IslandsHoly See (Vatican City State)HondurasHong KongHungaryIcelandIndiaIndonesiaIran, Islamic Republic ofIraqIrelandIsle of ManIsraelItalyJamaicaJapanJerseyJordanKazakhstanKenyaKiribatiKorea, Democratic People’s Republic ofKorea, Republic ofKuwaitKyrgyzstanLao People’s Democratic RepublicLatviaLebanonLesothoLiberiaLibyan Arab JamahiriyaLiechtensteinLithuaniaLuxembourgMacaoMacedonia, The Former Yugoslav Republic ofMadagascarMalawiMalaysiaMaldivesMaliMaltaMartiniqueMauritaniaMauritiusMayotteMexicoMoldova, Republic ofMonacoMongoliaMontenegroMontserratMoroccoMozambiqueMyanmarNamibiaNauruNepalNetherlandsNew CaledoniaNew ZealandNicaraguaNigerNigeriaNiueNorfolk IslandNorwayOmanPakistanPalestinianPanamaPapua New GuineaParaguayPeruPhilippinesPitcairnPolandPortugalQatarReunionRomaniaRussian FederationRWANDASaint Barthélemy Saint Helena, Ascension and Tristan da CunhaSaint Kitts and NevisSaint LuciaSaint Martin (French part)Saint Pierre and MiquelonSaint Vincent and the GrenadinesSamoaSan MarinoSao Tome and PrincipeSaudi ArabiaSenegalSerbiaSeychellesSierra LeoneSingaporeSint Maarten (Dutch part)SlovakiaSloveniaSolomon IslandsSomaliaSouth AfricaSouth Georgia and the South Sandwich IslandsSouth SudanSpainSri LankaSudanSurinameSvalbard and Jan MayenSwazilandSwedenSwitzerlandSyrian Arab RepublicTaiwanTajikistanTanzania, United Republic ofThailandTimor-LesteTogoTokelauTongaTrinidad and TobagoTunisiaTurkeyTurkmenistanTurks and Caicos IslandsTuvaluUgandaUkraineUnited Arab EmiratesUnited KingdomUnited StatesUruguayUzbekistanVanuatuVenezuela, Bolivarian Republic ofVietnamVirgin Islands, BritishWallis and FutunaWestern SaharaYemenZambiaZimbabweI also wish to receive emails from AAAS/Science and Science advertisers, including information on products, services and special offers which may include but are not limited to news, careers information & upcoming events.Required fields are included by an asterisk(*) By Martin EnserinkFeb. 14, 2017 , 3:15 PMlast_img read more
