first_imgThe Ministry of Transport, Works and Housing is putting measures in place to address the problem of illegal land occupation throughout the country.It is estimated that there are over 700 residential squatter settlements islandwide with more than 100,000 households, with an average of four to five persons per household.Minister with responsibility for Housing, Hon. Dr. Morais Guy, in his presentation in the 2013/14 Sectoral Debate in the House of Representatives on May 21, informed that the Squatter Management Unit is being strengthened to effectively deal with the issue.Focus is also being placed on policy development, and a National Squatter Management Policy Concept Paper has been drafted with input from relevant agencies as well as civil society.Additionally, Dr. Guy said, “the squatter unit has just moved to obtain approval for the outsourcing of a comprehensive analytical research to inform squatter management policy measures.”Once the research is completed, further consultancy will be sought to develop the policy and an implementation plan.A new Trespass Act is also being developed to modernise the existing legislation, “which has been around for some 175 years,” Dr. Guy informed.According to the Minister, the issue of squatting does not only confront the Government, but is also a problem affecting private sector entities and landowners.He informed that several landowners and managers have been implementing mechanisms to reduce illegal occupation of their property and at least one player in the bauxite industry has signalled its intention to establish its own squatter management unit.Contact: Athaliah Reynolds-Bakerlast_img read more

first_img-30- Related Items: Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp#Bahamas, February 2, 2018 – Nassau – Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Finance the Hon. Peter Turnquest said that Blockchain technology has the potential to revolutionise the way business is done in The Bahamas.During the “Understanding Blockchain Technology Applications: What You Need to Know” workshop hosted by the Inter-American Development Bank (IDB) at Baha Mar Convention Centre, Wednesday, January 31, 2018, the DPM added that Blockchain technology has the ability to propel the country in a really dramatic way from where it is today to being a true leader in terms of technology and the way business is done as well as the ease of doing business.The workshop was facilitated by Chris Jagers and Natalie Smolenski from the Learning Machine Lab at Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT).  DPM Turnquest explained that with the Assistance of the IDB, he and several colleague Ministers toured the MIT Lab last year and saw the potential that the technology has for The Bahamas.“When a lot of people think of Blockchains, they think about cryptocurrency.  That is just one aspect of it.  That is something we are doing some research into to see how we will be able to capitalise on it.“More importantly than that is the way we can use this technology to improve the quality and efficiency of our daily lives.”He gave the illustration of the Government potentially using the technology to create electronic records that are “indisputable”, which would then lead to a system where records could be produced that individuals could carry around in the form of an electronic passport that they can take to any bank where they want to open an account.“If we had this electronic ID card if you will, you could walk into the bank, present your ID with your access code, they could look at your records, verify who you are via your information and away you go in minutes.  That is what we are talking about it.”As it stands now, he said it takes weeks or months for Bahamians and six to eight months for foreign nationals to open a bank account, which is “a very inefficient and frustrating process.”The DPM also noted that the Government is looking at how Blockchain technology can be useful in producing a proper land registry, employing it with companies registering with the government.“There are a whole host of opportunities that exist as a result of this technology and we want to explore it all and take our country to the cutting edge.”IDB Country Representative, The Bahamas Florencia Attademo-Hirt explained that emerging technologies like Blockchain have been making waves all over the world in recent years.She said, “Very simply put, Blockchain is a digital technology able to store and transport valuable information and assets securely.“Blockchains were first used to record transactions of digital money (cyrptocurrencies), but since those early days, there have been other uses and applications of this technology.”Mrs. Attademo-Hirt noted that Blockchain technology has the ability to manage a large amount of data accurately allowing for it to not be tampered or altered, and could be either very transparent or confidential.“In The Bahamas, we think we can apply blockchain to a number of areas beyond cyrptocurrencies or even the Financial Sector.”She said one of the goals of the workshop was to convince stakeholders as well as get their feedback on the usefulness of Blockchain Technology in The Bahamas in the area of sovereign citizen security and justice, in particular the information that is being handled by the justice system.  Another goal was to see if the technology could be used for education and training in the sense of keeping records and diplomas available and making them easily accessible to their owner of the records, employers and learning institutions.Mrs. Attademo-Hirt said they really also want to establish how useful it would be for land title registration.“We would really like you to give us your ideas even if you feel like Blockchain might not work for The Bahamas, if you feel that it is not the solution, if you are afraid of using the technology, if you fear people need to be trained in a way that they will not be able to.“We will like to hear all of your thoughts and your feedback to make sure that whatever investment that we do moving forward using this or other technologies, it is relevant to your country, helps improves lives in your country and helps Bahamians have a better prospect for their future,” Mrs. Attademo-Hirt said.center_img CaptionsDeputy Prime Minister and Minister of Finance the Hon.

first_img“Getting manufacturers involved is one of the things we’re working on now, and we don’t have the perfect answer,” says French. “We’re trying to figure out the next best step. Our experience has been, it’s OK for a reader to see advertising from a manufacturer, they know they’re getting the magazine for nothing. The precedent has already been set. If there is an ad message in an online community it’s going to be OK, users realize without this the medium wouldn’t exist. Take the 50,000 people who got a magazine for the last 20 years. They didn’t know at the time but they were the beginnings of the community.”Geographic and Demographic TargetingMeanwhile, former Cygnus vice president of interactive Dave Iannone, founder of Web firm Go Forward Media and the architect of Cygnus’ Firehouse.com, is working toward monetizing a new set of social media sites. In 2009, Elsevier Public Safety acquired Iannone’s Firefighternation.com and brought Go Forward Media in to develop social media sites around JEMS (the Journal of Emergency Medical Services) and Law Officer. Today, JemsConnect has more than 10,000 members while LawOfficer Connect has more than 5,000 members.But the real push for the Elsevier social networks is going beyond their proprietary Ning platforms to wider social networks such as Facebook, where all three brands are approaching or exceeding more than 50,000 fans, according to Iannone. “One big story can drive traffic spikes of more than 50 percent,” he says. “JEMS recently had a story about a paramedic who died on the scene and it had more than one thousand shares on Facebook. That translates into tens of thousands of page-views. Our strategy is not to rely on any one single platform. We have the Ning-based Web site for the hardcore users and we have Facebook where people do surprising things, like link to a discussion on Firefighternation.com to read it, then come back to Facebook to discuss it. We can get more comments on Facebook about a discussion that’s actually on FirefighterNation.com. The days of one Web portal are over.”In terms of monetization, Elsevier and Go Forward sell fan pages to marketers for hundreds of dollars per month. “Once you’ve got them engaged with their customers and potential customers, they fully realize the full power of social media,” says Iannone.The three Elsevier sites are starting to offer geographically and demographically targeted advertising on a CPM basis and in 2010 will generate revenue in the seven figures, according to Iannone. “We’re looking at sizeable growth annually where we can be up there with the big boys at not much cost,” he adds. “Many consumer magazines have figured this out but b-to-b hasn’t been really taking advantage of social media. This stuff changes so quickly-if you thought the Web changed quickly, this is going to be even more rapid. If you haven’t caught up, you’re going to be in worse shape than you were with the Web 10 years ago.”Using Social Media To Take the Agency RoleFramingham, Massachusetts-based tech publisher IDG Communications is using social media to provide real-time market intelligence for its clients. In an expansion of its Strategic Marketing Services group, IDG has partnered with Networked Insights to launch IDG Social Scout—a service that uses proprietary analytics to track conversations around topics and brands and measures sentiment/engagement over time. Tapping Networked Insights’ proprietary “listening platform,” the IDG Social Scout service can track social conversations online in regard to specific topics chosen by IDG’s marketing clients, providing real-time data on how well those terms are resonating.After determining which topics its clients are most interested in learning about, IDG’s research team develops a community of sites based on conversational engagement and volume that the company will track on an ongoing basis. IDG provide clients with a benchmark report that includes their brand and three competitors. From there, it provides weekly metrics reports that show change in conversation, sentiment and key discussions.While still small in terms of overall revenue, social media services are becoming a significant revenue stream and IDG has struck seven figure deals around it, according to CEO Bob Carrigan. “Social media services have been tremendously successful from the user point of view but also the sponsorship point of view,” he says. “It’s not just great for revenue but every marketer wants to talk to us about this.”SIDEBARUsing Social Media to Market Face-to-FaceReal Simple’s 10th anniversary events get a boost from Facebook and Twitter.Real Simple, Time Inc.’s monthly women’s magazine touting quick-and-easy design, recipe and lifestyle tips, launched a dual-city 10th anniversary tour of the brand in Chicago and New York in April.The events, bolstered by a raft of sponsor partners, were supported by a significant social media outreach and participation campaign. “We wanted to have another outlet where we could let our users know about it and give them updated information, plus let everyone across the country feel involved,” says executive editor Kathleen Murray Harris.A separate Facebook group was created to divert the event-specific postings to its own forum—“We didn’t want to overwhelm the users on the primary page,” says Murray Harris—which collected more than 1,000 fans. From there, Real Simple and associated bloggers and a team of about a dozen tweeters were recruited for coverage.The #RS10 hashtag attained trending topic status “for about 15 minutes,” says Murray Harris, who estimates the social media coverage and almost 400 blog posts reached about 300,000 people, including 4,500 at the Chicago event.Those numbers translate into real impressions for advertisers and sponsors at the event, says Murray Harris, who added that the exposure eventually leads to actual ad buys and continued sponsor deals.A lesson the team learned at the Chicago event was to dial back the tweets. That’s an easy trap to make for location-based Twitter coverage—an enthusiastic stream of tweets from an event the majority of followers aren’t at can get overwhelming. “The initial feedback we got was that because we had people tweeting so often people that followed Real Simple asked us to back off a bit,” says Murray Harris. According to a 2009 Forrester Research study called “The Social Technographics of Business Buyers,” b-to-b buyers and decision makers are among the most active groups in social media. However, monetizing around that participation has been a struggle for b-to-b publishers.Still, turning social media into a revenue-generating business is a priority for many publishers in 2010. As Cygnus Business Media looks to build value after emerging from its Chapter 11 restructuring last year, one of its top priorities will be harnessing what CEO John French calls “social business media.”“Social media is the buzz word du jour but just like how everyone talked about Webinars and e-newsletters a couple years ago, everybody finds a new horse to ride,” he says. “We think social business media is as important as those previous developments but it’s a lot bigger. Business-to-business is a form of social media. The difference was in years past, it was done in print. We’ve gone from magazines delivering push content to getting the people out there to get together and talk.”The next step is figuring out how to monetize social media around communities such as Firehouse.com, Officer.com and EMSUnited.com. As part of the relaunch of its brand, Demers Ambulances wanted to create a social business media “buzz” and purchased an integrated package in order to reach a targeted group of EMS professionals that included ads, e-blasts, blogs booth space, podcasts and Webcasts on EMS Garage.last_img read more

first_imgVisuals have always been a better way to elucidate one’s feelings as well as reach out to people and connect with much ease and sincerity and so what can be better than photography exhibition, where images speak for themselves.Keeping that thought in mind, ‘Habitat Photosphere,’ a photography festival will hold its first ever international workshop titled ‘The World Upside Down: Modes of Representation in The East and the West’ by French artist Pascal Monteil at the Experimental Art Gallery, India Habitat Centre on Saturday.  Also Read – ‘Playing Jojo was emotionally exhausting’Monteil will take the participants of the workshop, from Rome to Tokyo, through Ispahan, Lahore and Fatehpur Sikri, onto a visual journey through world art histories and their modes of representation. He will be discussing specific paintings as well as his personal journey as an artist taking inspiration from various traditions.Monteil’s works are done using a particular technique called digital painting. “Each one of my work is done minutely with thousands of photographic elements either designed or painted; they are adjusted, superimposed, revised and lit-up on computer. Thanks to digital technique, using these fragments just as a painter would do with his colors and paintbrushes; I wish to achieve pictures with a photographic depiction combined with the very special power of painting to sublime the real and its emotional precision,” said Monteil. Monteil’s work is an exploration and a re-interpretation of Persian and Indian miniature traditions.  Also Read – Leslie doing new comedy special with NetflixDr Alka Pande, curator and art consultant, Visual Arts Gallery, IHC said, “Pascal Monteil is an artist of the world. An international cosmopolitanism, bordering on the exotic and the unknown, characterises his suite of ‘paintings’. He is an artist, who combines the traditional art of painting with contemporary digital photography and makes compelling landscapes which cross boundaries of geographies and cultures. These phantasmagorical imagined landscapes emerge from his experiences and his training as a painter. A peripatetic traveler, his paintings are replete with historical and cultural references. An incredible storyteller, Pascal is a bard, who through his lyrical renditions tells stories about his travels. From the city of love, philosophy and artistic effulgence Paris, he travels to India, to Persia to Japan, reading the landscapes of these ancient civilisations, creating arresting juxtapositions on the canvas.”  Pascal Monteil is a visual artist who lives and works between Paris and various cities in Asia. Beside his artistic practice, Pascal has also been teaching art and architecture for the past fifteen years. The fee for participation in the workshop is Rs 400 for India Habitat Centre members; Rs 500 for non-members and Rs 200 Rs for students. As a part of Habitat Photosphere’s aim of taking art photography into the public space, Monteil’s works will also be exhibited at the Jor Bagh metro station from December 2015 till March 2016.last_img read more

first_img This story originally appeared on Reuters Register Now » Free Webinar | Sept. 9: The Entrepreneur’s Playbook for Going Global Samsung Electronics Co Ltd aims to use its $56 billion cash pile to fund growth including acquisitions, the tech giant’s investor relations chief said, even as more shareholders clamor for bigger dividends.While the South Korean company’s profit declined in 2014 for the first time in three years as its lead in smartphones was challenged by Apple Inc, investors were cheered by a 40 percent dividend boost and its first share buyback since 2007.But Robert Yi, Samsung’s head of investor relations, signaled that shareholders should not expect the same in 2015 as the company keeps its focus on growth.”Dividends and other forms of shareholder returns are responsibilities that the company has for shareholders, so we will make efforts to meet them. But our primary objective is growth and that is what we are communicating to our shareholders,” Yi told Reuters in an interview.Samsung has become an increasingly active shopper, striking 10 deals in two years. Even so, its purchases have been small, prompting calls from some investors for bigger deals to revive growth momentum.”We are primarily focused on M&A deals for companies that would be good fits to Samsung’s current businesses, and we believe that know-how and experience accrued from such transactions will make bigger M&A deals possible going forward,” Yi said.Samsung Electronics held cash of 61.8 trillion won ($56.14 billion) at the end of 2014.Yi said more value fund managers had bought Samsung shares over the past year as its share price and earnings declined.”Their main interest is to increase long-term value through shareholder returns policies, so they have been calling for more dividends and share buybacks,” he said.Yi declined to comment specifically on plans for buybacks or dividends. A person familiar with the matter told Reuters on Feb. 10 that Samsung would probably pay out less this year than in 2014.South Korean companies are notoriously parsimonious when it comes to dividends. Seoul-listed shares tend to trade at discounts to peers.Yi said Samsung planned to strengthen shareholder outreach, making top management more available to institutional investors and holding more public events.It also wanted to boost investment by foreign retail investors to help build consumer loyalty. Samsung, which does not have American Depositary Receipts, in 2013 arranged a program with Bank of America Merrill Lynch that allows U.S. retail investors to invest directly in its shares. Samsung declined to comment on how many investors acquired its stock through the program.Samsung shares fell to multi-year lows in October but have recovered and were up 3.8 percent in 2015 based on Tuesday’s closing level.($1 = 1,100.8700 won)(Editing by Tony Munroe and Stephen Coates) 3 min read Growing a business sometimes requires thinking outside the box.
