Counting What Counts

first_imgYou never produce results without activity. But you also never produce results without those activities generating a positive outcome.You can count the number of phone calls you make, but that’s only an indication of one part of your effort, your willingness to dial the telephone. It says nothing about how willing you were to engage in the right conversations when someone answered. It also reveals nothing about how effective you were on that call.A scheduled appointment proves that a commitment was gained. That’s a good indication of a positive outcome. But that appointment tells you nothing about whether the prospective client has a problem you can solve, whether they’re dissatisfied enough to change, or whether or not the appointment is with the right person.Face-to-face sales calls are easily counted. And they are the critical interaction that creates and moves opportunities forward. But counting them tells you nothing about the quality of the interaction. It doesn’t say anything about how the salesperson was perceived by the client or whether or not they created the kind of value that generates trust. The number of sales calls also doesn’t speak to whether or not you gained any real insight as to how you might help your prospective client.Most salespeople fail because they take too little action or they are inconsistent. But anything that is easy to count isn’t often meaningful, and most of what is meaningful doesn’t easily lend itself to be counted. Get the Free eBook! Learn how to sell without a sales manager.

Warriors’ Kevin Durant suffers Achilles injury in Game 5

first_imgMany others just sent best wishes, including Miami’s Kelly Olynyk, Cleveland’s Kevin Love and Atlanta’s Trae Young. And some Raptors players, including Kyle Lowry, urged those fans who were cheering the sight of Durant limping to stop.“I don’t think the fans knew the significance of the injury,” Lowry said.The Warriors entered the night trailing the Raptors 3-1 in the title series — meaning their hopes of a third consecutive NBA championship remain on the brink now. Durant had not played since straining a calf muscle in Game 5 of the Western Conference semifinals against Houston, and the team hoped his presence would be a boost.“The skill, obviously, is undeniable and he’s a guy who can get a shot off anytime he wants,” Kerr said earlier Monday. “He’s been in similar situations with us where he’s had long layoffs. He’s Kevin Durant. If we have him out there, he’ll be a threat.”He won’t be out there again this season.“I just feel so bad for him,” Curry said. “Nobody should have to go through something like that.”Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next Duterte wants probe of SEA Games mess DA eyes importing ‘galunggong’ anew Kevin Durant out with Achilles injury; to undergo MRI on Tuesday PLAY LIST 03:12Kevin Durant out with Achilles injury; to undergo MRI on Tuesday01:43Who are Filipinos rooting for in the NBA Finals?00:50Trending Articles02:42PH underwater hockey team aims to make waves in SEA Games01:44Philippines marks anniversary of massacre with calls for justice01:19Fire erupts in Barangay Tatalon in Quezon City01:07Trump talks impeachment while meeting NCAA athletes02:49World-class track facilities installed at NCC for SEA Games02:11Trump awards medals to Jon Voight, Alison Krauss ‘Rebel attack’ no cause for concern-PNP, AFP WATCH: Kawhi Leonard scores 10 straight for Raptors late in Game 5 Durant got hurt on a dribble on the right wing, coming up lame on a crossover move and falling to the floor. He grabbed the back of his leg, appeared to grab below the calf and more toward the Achilles area, and needed help to limp to the bench area and more help to get back to the Warriors’ locker room. Warriors forward Andre Iguodala was on Durant’s left side as they made the long walk back to the room, with Myers and Stephen Curry in the group immediately behind them.“It sucks. I feel so bad for him, his camp,” Warriors guard Klay Thompson said. “He’s going to come back stronger though. That’s the kind of fighter he is and I’m going to miss him, man. It’s not the same being out there without him.”Durant shouted an expletive as he left the floor, his frustration obvious. He was supposed to be one of the marquee free agents this summer. He may now end up exercising his $31.5 million option to stay with the Warriors, especially if he’s going to be sidelined for an extended period.“I’m hurting deep in the soul right now,” Durant wrote on Instagram after the game.His season is over.ADVERTISEMENT Don’t miss out on the latest news and information.

(Chris Young/The Canadian Press via AP)TORONTO — Golden State forward Kevin Durant has an injured right Achilles, a massive blow for the perennial All-Star and two-time NBA Finals MVP who may be three weeks away from free agency and could also be facing a long rehabilitation process.Warriors general manager Bob Myers was teary when he gave the news after Game 5 of the NBA Finals on Monday night. An MRI will be performed Tuesday to determine the severity, but Durant’s season is clearly over and his recovery will likely take several months if the Achilles is indeed torn.ADVERTISEMENT Two-day strike in Bicol fails to cripple transport Ethel Booba twits Mocha over 2 toilets in one cubicle at SEA Games venue Catholic schools seek legislated pay hike, too View comments MOST READ Private companies step in to help SEA Games hosting Cayetano: Senate, Drilon to be blamed for SEA Games mess “He’s one of the most misunderstood people,” Myers said. “He’s a good teammate, he’s a good person, it’s not fair.

And to tell you something about Kevin Durant, Kevin Durant loves to play basketball, and the people that questioned whether he wanted to get back to this team were wrong.” LATEST STORIES The Warriors’ season isn’t.“We do it for Kevin,” Thompson said.Durant had been cleared by the Warriors’ medical staff after Game 4, and participated in both a practice session Sunday and a shootaround practice earlier Monday. The Warriors had said throughout his monthlong absence that they did not want him back on the floor until he was right, for fear of a scenario where Durant aggravated the injury and had no chance of returning this season.Their nightmare came true. And if it really only was a calf injury initially, this was worse.“It’s a bizarre feeling that we all have right now,” Warriors coach Steve Kerr said. “An incredible win and a horrible loss at the same time.”Durant had 11 points in 12 minutes, making all three of his 3-point attempts. He started and played the first six minutes, then had the lower leg wrapped with a heating pad to keep it loose before he returned about three minutes later.“He gave us what he had,” Curry said. “He went out there and sacrificed his body.”When the injury happened, a number of NBA players reacted on Twitter quickly — both to the injury, and to the sound of some Toronto fans cheering when Durant got hurt.“Why are they cheering for his injury? Come on man,” Philadelphia center Joel Embiid wrote.Added Washington’s Bobby Portis: “Raptors fans can’t cheer for a player getting hurt. That’s lame.”last_img read more

BJPs Assam gains unlikely to fast-track pending reforms: DBS

first_imgMumbai, May 20 (PTI) Taking a contrarian view, global financial services major DBS today said BJPs victory in Assam polls is a positive for the government at Centre politically but will be “neutral” from the policy-making perspective and may not help expedite pending reforms like GST.”These results are a positive for the ruling government ahead of a busy state election calendar in 2017.”But for now, it does little to improve its tally in the Upper House and is thereby neutral for policy-making, including passage of the crucial Goods and Services Tax bill,” Singapore-based DBS said in a note today.The GST Bill has been stuck in Rajya Sabha due to want of numbers at the BJPs side.Moreover, Assam sends in just seven members to Rajya Sabha and there is no vacancy from the state now.After the poll results yesterday, some sections including commentators on economic issues have been voicing optimism about the passage of critical reforms like these as the BJP gains more strength.The foreign brokerage said the markets looked beyond the state elections in Thursdays trade and instead focussed on the rising odds of a US rate hike in June after the release of minutes of the Fed meeting, to end 1.2 per cent lower.The report said portfolio flows and the rupee are likely to come under pressure in the short-term if strong domestic data convinces the Fed to follow-up with rate normalization plans.It also flagged the issue of rising crude prices, which have breached the USD 50 per barrel, are a key factor to watch out for when it comes to India.advertisement”From a risk perspective, the upturn in global crude prices is another important watch factor for the economy, even if non-threatening at current levels,” it said.Eminent banker Uday Kotak recently highlighted that the bonanza brought about by the lower oil prices on key indicators like the current account deficit would be over if oil price starts inching up.

Madrid stars back Zidane after Copa catastrophe

first_imgReal Madrid Real Madrid dressing room backs Zidane after Copa catastrophe Alberto Piñero 05:48 1/26/18 FacebookTwitterRedditcopy Comments(4) Zinedine Zidane Real Madrid Villarreal Getty Images Real Madrid Copa del Rey Real Madrid v Leganés Leganés Following the lead of captain Sergio Ramos, the Blancos have shown their coach unconditional support despite Wednesday’s shock upset The Real Madrid dressing room has closed ranks around Zinedine Zidane as the coach struggles through the worst crisis of his short tenure as Merengue coach. Wednesday’s Copa del Rey defeat to Leganes sent shockwaves through the club, leaving an unsightly wound in a Madrid side that is already reeling due to their chronic underachievement in La Liga so far this season. The circumstances of defeat, in front of a bemused Santiago Bernabeu and to a less-than-illustrious rival, only heightens the feeling of disaster around the Spanish capital, with Zidane taking the brunt of criticism for the Copa exit. Zizou, a Merengue legend as a player and with two Champions Leagues to his name as coach, holds just two cards in his favour: Madrid’s continuity (so far) in this year’s Champions League and the trust of all-powerful president Florentino Perez.  Article continues below Editors’ Picks Lyon treble & England heartbreak: The full story behind Lucy Bronze’s dramatic 2019 Liverpool v Man City is now the league’s biggest rivalry and the bitterness is growing Megan Rapinoe: Born & brilliant in the U.S.A. A Liverpool legend in the making: Behind Virgil van Dijk’s remarkable rise to world’s best player No surprise, then, that for the first time in his two years at the helm names of possible successors are being openly discussed. Not, however, in the Blanco dressing room. Sergio Ramos, captain and unofficial spokesman for this team, set the tone in Wednesday’s mixed zone as the vultures were already beginning to swoop.”We are with the coach,” Ramos underlined to reporters, in a short message that says everything. The Madrid dressing room has rallied round Zidane in his hour of need, at a point where his selections and tactics were badly shown up at a pivotal time.”We are all on his side. He has made us win everything,” Goal heard from within the club, an emphatic message of support. Not, of course, that every player at the club is as pleased with Zidane. Isco for one failed to hide his frustration on Wednesday upon being substituted, although that anger was short-lived. But once inside the dressing room everyone is on Zidane’s side, and vice versa. The coach has total confidence in the squad which has remained largely unchanged during his tenure, and always has done. It was the Frenchman who first tried to break the tension after the Copa elimination. A natural optimist, he asked his troops to look ahead from the off. The only thing on Madrid minds now is the Champions League, and Zidane is making that as clear as possible. That was the message in the dressing room on that bleak Wednesday evening, and also the theme of Madrid’s training session the following day. Europe is Madrid’s last hope of glory in 2017-18 – and Zidane is going all out to make that happen.Leganes, Real Madrid“If we don’t believe in ourselves, nobody will,” a source from Madrid explained. “Right now we’re f***ed, but we will learn from this. There is still a chance to finish the year on the high. Not every year is going to be like last year, it would be too easy to follow Real Madrid if that were the case. Now we have to stick together and give it our all.”Those words are like a mantra in the Bernabeu. The entire Madrid dressing room is determined to bounce back after that Leganes defeat, and nobody more than Zidane.last_img read more

That was more like a battle than a football game. Why did that happen? You know very well.”That’s why it’s compulsory to behave professionally. We translate a lot of emotion to the people.

Doodle Robert Doisneau lhomme qui photographia la magie de linstant

first_imgDoodle : Robert Doisneau, l’homme qui photographia la magie de l’instantEn ce 14 avril 2012, le célèbre Doodle de Googe célèbre le centième anniversaire du photographe Robert Doisneau. Une occasion de replonger dans la vie d’un grand professionnel de l’image, qui a réussit à immortaliser des scènes ordinaires de la vie, en leur donnant une profondeur rare.Aujourd’hui, en allant effectuer une recherche sur le moteur de Google, vous remarquerez une série de photos, dont une, célèbre, ne pourra vous laisser de glace : “le baiser de l’hôtel de ville”, prise en 1950 par le photographe Robert Doisneau.Une scène qui pourrait être tout à fait banale en temps réel, et qui expose tout son romantisme par la fixation de l’instant; le monde passe autour de cette étreinte, et le temps est figé pour les amoureux.Scènes ordinaires, cocasses, d’un monde en perpétuel mouvement; c’est le sujet de prédilection de Robert Doisneau, né il y a tout juste 100 ans, le 14 avril 1912.Après avoir obtenu son diplôme de graveur et lithographe en 1929, Robert Doisneau intègre l’Atelier Ullman en tant que photographe pubicitaire, et en 1931, découvre le courant de la nouvelle objectivité photograpique. Un an plus tard, son premier reportage est vendu au journal l’Excelsior.Quand l’instant devient ArtEn 1934, il devient photographe industriel pour Renault, mais se fait renvoyé du fait de ses retards. C’est à cette époque qu’il fait la connaissance de Charles Rado, fondateur de l’agence de photographie Rapho, qu’il intègrera après la seconde guerre mondiale.Robert Doisneau y traite des sujets très divers comme l’actualité parisienne, part réaliser des reportages à l’étranger (en URSS, aux états-unis, en Yougoslavie…), et travaille pour de grands magazines comme Life, Paris-Match ou Regards.Derrière l’objectif, Robert Doisneau voit le monde se mouvoir, élever de grandes structures, et, dans la rue, des scènes à taille plus humaine. Sa rencontre, en 1947, avec Robert Giraud sera le point de départ de nombreux ouvrages, une trentaine dont la banlieue de Paris, en 1949.Entre 1948 et 1953, il devient collaborateur permanent du magazine Vogue, mais n’oublie pas ces scènes de la vie ordinaire qu’il immortalise dans Rue Mouffetard (1951) ou dans les écoliers de la rue Damesme (1956). C’est à cette époque qu’il accepte d’illustrer les textes de son ami Jacques Yonnet dans “La ville des Maléfices” (ex-“Enchantements sur Paris”).Un talent mondialement reconnuEn 1956, Robert Doisneau reçoit le prix Niepce (deuxième distinction après avoir reçu le prix Kodak en 1947), et, quatre ans plus tard, décide de monter une exposition au préstigieux musée d’Art contemporain de Chicago.À lire aussiMaladie de Charcot : symptômes, causes, traitement, où en est on ?Le talent de Robert Doisneau, connu et reconnu au niveau mondial, fait l’objet d’une exposition au Festival des Rencontres d’Arles en 1975 et en 1986. Un évènement qui lui décernera de nombreux prix : pour l’Enfant et la Colombe en 1979, Trois secondes d’Eternité en 1980. L’homme remporte également le Grand Prix National de la Photographie en 1983, ainsi que le Prix Balzac trois ans plus tard.En 1992, Robert Doisneau présente une rétrospective au musée d’Art Moderne d’Oxford, une dernière exposition que l’artiste organise de son vivant car, deux ans plus tard, il décède le 1er avril 1994.Si Robert Doisneau a pu trouver que la vie ne représente qu’un instant, il a su en fixer et en immortaliser certains passages, ouvrant la vie de cette “photographie objective” au monde entier. Et à l’heure de la photographie numérique, nombreux sont les photographes amateurs ou professionnels qui s’inspirent tous les jours de son oeuvre.Le 14 avril 2012 à 17:31 • Maxime Lambertlast_img read more

Good guy Etoo promises to buy a home for exCameroon captain

Mourinho denies the double meaning of his Juventus praise

first_imgManchester United manager Jose Mourinho, categorically denied that his praise to Juventus last week was a dig at Manchester United’s board.Ever since Jose Mourinho took control of Manchester United, he has repeatedly made many requests that the board has ignored and his praise to Juventus’ management last week appeared as a direct criticism to Ed Woodward.After the Red Devils lost against Juventus at Old Trafford, the Portuguese manager took quite a few minutes to give the highest praise to the Italian club’s organization and the way they plan their seasons every year.This Saturday ahead of United’s Premier League match against Everton, the Portuguese manager was questioned about these comments and he was pressed about how his analysis might have come across as a direct dig at the Red Devils’ board of directors.The Portuguese manager refused to discuss the details of what he really thinks, which indirectly spoke loudly about what he really thinks of the way that his transfer suggestions have been repeatedly rejected by Ed Woodward since he started working for the club.It’s clear that Jose Mourinho believes that the English giants are still a long way from clubs like Juventus, who plan their success with years of anticipation.“I am not going to discuss with you the way that I think Manchester United should be organized,” said Mourinho quoted by The Mirror.“One thing is to compliment Juventus, but it’s another to give my opinion on how Manchester United should or shouldn’t be organized at that level. But for me, the biggest compliment to Juventus is not even about their structure.”“My compliment is about the philosophy and the basic things behind the philosophy. In the tunnel, before the game, I was speaking with Mr Agnelli and I was telling him ‘since I left Inter, you have seven titles in a row and it looks like the eighth is coming.’”“And he told me: ‘I don’t want the eighth. I want 10 in a row.’ I think that’s a fantastic answer and a fantastic statement. They have won seven in a row, but they bought Cristiano [Ronaldo] and [Leonardo] Bonucci and [Emre] Can and [Joao] Cancelo.”“They [Juventus] always want more and more and more.

I am a coach and I do the best work I can do,” he concluded.Mourinho says United must invest to reach the level of Juventus, Barcelona, Madrid and City. #mufc [ESPN] pic.twitter.com/BROF0xrIEL— United Xtra (@utdxtra) October 24, 2018After his rant, it’s quite evident that Jose Mourinho’s words were nothing more than a comparison between the two institutions and maybe even a job application that he left in the hands of the Juventus board for the future.Let us not forget that the Portuguese manager has already worked with the likes of Cristiano Ronaldo, and coaching Juventus in the future certainly is a possibility that nobody should discard because of this simple fact.We are still under the impression that the Portuguese manager is still keen on continuing his work with the Red Devils, but leaving a planted seed for the future is not such a bad idea, just in case things go sideways for him sooner rather than later.Harvard’s assistant football coach says he would welcome Juventus centre-backs Giorgio Chiellini, 34, and Leonardo Bonucci, 31, after Jose Mourinho said the pair could go to the American university “to give classes about how to be a central defender”.

Viacom sells Harmonix to private investment firm

first_imgAlthough the Rock Band developer may be suing its former bosses for shady profit withholding, that lawsuit hasn’t stopped Viacom from successfully selling Harmonix off, which they managed to do right before the holidays.Word first popped up that Viacom was looking to sell Harmonix — creators of Rock Band and Guitar Hero, whose games have sold tens of millions of copies to date — back in November for unstated reasons.Supposedly, the issue is profitability, which is a bit hard to believe. The revenues for the last three Rock Band games are commonly cited as being over $1 billion. I suppose it depends on how much Viacom was pumping into the company after the $175 million sale back in 2006, but e already know that Viacom is being accused of withholding bonuses. Perhaps things were bleaker than they first appeared.Either way, the new owner of Harmonix is a private investment firm in New York. Viacom says they’re now getting out of the rhythm music game market, but Harmonix has no intention of stopping: they’re currently working on a new music game for the Nintendo 3DS.Read more at LA Timeslast_img read more

Summer goes neon

first_imgMove over gold and silver jewelry, experiment with bright coloured neckpieces, earrings and other accessories this summer season and pair them with solid monochromes for the best effect this summer. From bags to shoes and accessories, neon colours are the fashion pick of the season with stark pinks, greens and yellows appearing on nails, flats, belts and bags. From Sarojini Nagar market to the fashion trove in GK I M Block and even in the likes of Vera Moda and Aldo – neon in the new black. Also Read – ‘Playing Jojo was emotionally exhausting’While men have to be a little careful about going neon, subtle streaks of green or yellow in t-shirts and shoes gave a nice sporty twist to the summer wardrobe. Neon streaks however have also started appearing in belts and ties. For women, the choices are abundant. The only pointer is to pick the right colours and pair them well. When going neon, one has to make sure that it is not over done. Greys, whites, blacks, even pale pastels can be played around with when it comes to neon accessories. A basic t-shirt and jeans ensemble can be given a new kick with neon flats or a neon belt. And even neon frames. Also Read – Leslie doing new comedy special with NetflixFor the mornings go easy on the clothes. Since it is summer it is perhaps best to play with pastels and whites or even light greys. A neon pendant or ear rings or alternately a bag can completely turn your look around. A pale neon t-shirt paired with pastel shorts gets a thumbs-up from us. A neon watch is also a perfect summer accessory.  For the night, blacks and stone greys and dark shades can be lifted with neon necklaces and heels. Neon on the nails has been quite big for a while, but please keep in mind – bright colours look best on short nails. You can also experiment with extensions and neon tips – but make sure you are getting them from a good studio. You can add a little bit of glitter for the extra zing.  And as we always say, carry the blingy attitude with it and you would never go wrong!last_img read more

MParallel batch processor with multithreading support

first_imgMParallel: batch processor with multi-threading support by Martin Brinkmann on November 09, 2016 in Software – 9 commentsMParallel is a free command line program for Microsoft Windows devices that enables you to run multiple tasks you specify in parallel.It is probably best to start with a few examples to showcase how powerful MParallel actually is. At a basic level, you could run multiple commands that you can execute from the command line in parallel.Think of five ping commands to different destinations for example that can run in parallel.From there, you may explore advanced options like finding all jpg images in a directory and converting them to png format using ImageMagick, or doing the same for video files.MParallelThe program ships as a portable program. Simply download the latest archive for your operating system — there is a 32-bit and 64-bit version, and the source code — and extract the archive when the download completes.Once done, you may want to run the command mparallel.exe –help to display the list of supported options.You will notice that there are quite a few that it supports. Generally speaking, it is necessary to begin the command with the program’s parameters before you add the programs that you want executed.The command MParallel.exe –count=3 ping.exe -n 16 fsf.org : ping.exe -n 16 gnu.org : ping.exe -n 16 w3c.org begins with –count=3 which tells MParallel that there will be three commands that you want run in parallel.This is a basic example, and there is a lot more that you can do. For instance, instead of specifying commands directly, you could tell the program to look for them in a text file instead. This can be useful if you want lots of commands to be executed, or better editing and management options for those commands.You’d achieve that by using –input=commands.txt, and adding each command to a line in the text file.A slightly more complicated command is the following one: dir /b *.jpg | MParallel.exe –shell –stdin —pattern=”copy {{0}} {{0:N}}.png”This uses the dir command to find all .jpg images, to run MParallel and rename the files to .png. Not something that you want to do, but it showcases several new options such as running shell commands, and using pattern.The package ships with two example command files that you may look at for additional examples. The first uses MParallel in conjunction with ImageMagick to convert jpg images to png files, the other FFmpeg to convert avi files to mp4 files.Closing WordsMParallel is a mighty program that may take some getting used to time but if you worked with the command line or batch files before, you should feel at home right away. Probably the biggest advantage of it is that it lets you run commands in parallel which should speed up execution significantly on modern systems.Now You: Do you use the command line at all?  Summary12345 Author Ratingno rating based on 0 votes Software Name MParallelOperating System WindowsSoftware Category AdministrationLanding Page https://github.com/lordmulder/MParallel Advertisementlast_img read more
