Complementing JackBe’s existing line of mashup and app making tools, the JackBe App Store will enable users to share the AJAX apps they’ve created with other uses within the enterprise. The apps are portable and can run as standalone apps, on dashboards, in Sharepoint, on mobile devices, and pipe data into Excel.JackBe’s tools, such as Presto Wires and Mashboard, enable the creation of mashups and simple custom apps by end-users without the need for the IT department to get involved, thus speeding up development and deployment. The tools are designed with security and compliance in mind and run inside the firewall, so enterprise-ready applications can be created on the fly.The company says a major publishing house uses JackBe products to map items from their inventory to current trending search terms from Yahoo! and other sources of real-time data. The publishing house’s marketing team uses this information to create timely web marketing campaigns by on current events.The JackBe App Store aims to improve the sharing of these sorts of custom apps within the enterprise by allowing app creators to share their creations across silos or within departments. End-users can then easily modify the apps – by adding or removing data or changing the way it’s visualized.In 2008 Forrester estimated the market for enterprise mashups would reach $700 million by 2013. Other companies competing for a chunk of this market include Dapper, Kapow, Kivati and Mindtouch.last_img read more

You Can Do It. The Question is Will You?

first_img Essential Reading! Get my first book: The Only Sale Guide You’ll Ever Need “The USA Today bestseller by the star sales speaker and author of The Sales Blog that reveals how all salespeople can attain huge sales success through strategies backed by extensive research and experience.” Buy Now The difference between “can” and “will” is measured in the difference between the result one produces and the result one is capable of producing.Even without knowing what one wants, it is almost certain that any individual can do what they need to do to have it. When said individual does not have what they want, there is almost a guaranteed lack of will, i.e., they are unwilling to pay the price to obtain it. The lack of “will do” is present even when a person denies lacking the will. In fact, you are every minute surrounded by overwhelming evidence of this truth.If you want something you don’t have, it’s because you have seen it. You have evidence that it is possible. You might even have noticed that the person who has what you want is not all that different from you, and they might even lack some of the skills, abilities, and other intangibles you already possess. There may also be a few who have what you want who didn’t have the knowledge or skills and had to pay the price to gain them before they achieved that thing you want. Either way, if they could do all those things necessary to produce some result, you can do the same. But the “can” isn’t what allows some to succeed where others fail. It’s the “will do.”People who succeed at achieving any goal exercise their will, their “me management.” They will themselves to do what others will not, and that willingness is visible in the results they produce. Those who achieve any worthwhile goal pay the price to have what they want, and they pay it in full, without fail, and without complaint.The willingness to pay the price in time, energy, and resources is what allows two people to produce wildly different results. The willingness to invest in the result you want instead of spending these resources on comfort and entertainment is how you achieve your goals. Your results exactly match your real goals.The question is not, “Can you?” The question is, “Will you?”last_img read more

B Sai Praneeth 1st Indian male shuttler to win medal in 36

first_imgBasel (Switzerland): B Sai Praneeth became the first Indian male shuttler in 36 years to secure a medal in the BWF World Championships after a straight-game victory over Indonesia’s Jonatan Christie propelled him into the semifinals here on Friday. World No. 19 Praneeth, who got the Arjuna Award this year, notched up a 24-22 21-14 win over Asian Games gold medallist and World No. 4 Jonatan in the quarterfinals. Prakash Padukone was the first Indian to win a men’s singles World Championships medal — a bronze — in the 1983 edition. Praneeth, who had won the Singapore Open in 2017 and finished runners-up at Swiss Open earlier this year, came into the tournament with a 1-2 head-to-head count against the Indonesian.

PMs museum CPWD penalised for rejection of bid to build

first_imgNew Delhi: The Delhi High Court has directed CPWD to pay Rs 1.5 lakh to an architectural firm for unjustifiably rejecting its bid for constructing a museum for India’s Prime Ministers on the premises of Nehru Memorial at Teen Murti Bhawan.The court, however, did not quash the contract citing the substantial outlay of expenditure, which has already occurred pursuant to the award of tender, and the work progress at the site. “We do not consider it to be in the larger public interest to quash the award of the project and direct further processing of the petitioner’s (firm) bid, or to mandate that a de novo exercise be carried out in the present case by calling for fresh tenders,” said a bench of Justices S Ravindra Bhat and Prateek Jalan. The court directed the Central Public Works Department (CPWD) to refund to Bangalore-based Flying Elephant Studio the amounts incurred on tender documents and fee. “…the present petition is disposed of without granting any relief to the petitioner… However, in the peculiar facts and circumstances, the respondent No.1 (CPWD) will pay the costs of these proceedings to the petitioner. The costs are assessed at Rs 1,50,000 to be paid within two weeks,” it said in a recent order. The petition concerned a ‘Notice Inviting Tender’ (NIT) issued by the CPWD for a Prime Ministers museum on the premises of Nehru Memorial Museum and Library at Teen Murti Bhawan here. The firm’s grievance was that its bid for the museum was rejected by the CPWD. The authorities told the court that they rejected the bid on the ground that the firm did not satisfy the eligibility criteria and that the previous projects executed by it do not fall within the categories of buildings enumerated in the definition of ‘Similar Comprehensive Consultancy Work’ contained in the NIT. The firm’s counsel submitted that it fulfilled all the eligibility criteria set out in the ‘Initial Eligibility Criteria’ provided by CPWD in the tender notice.last_img read more

Womens volleyball Buckeyes Sweet Sixteen bound

Members of the Ohio State women’s volleyball team celebrate after scoring against LIU Brooklyn on Sept. 2, 2016. OSU won, 3-0. Credit: Jenna Leinasars | Multimedia EditorThe Ohio State women’s volleyball team upset arguably their most important opponent this season, No. 14 Kansas State on Saturday for a trip to the Sweet Sixteen round of the NCAA tournament. The Buckeyes eliminated the Wildcats in five-sets, 25-20, 25-22, 22-25, 23-25 and 17-15. OSU secured their spot to play in Saturday’s second round by knocking off Missouri State in three sets on Friday, while the Wildcats swept Lipscomb, also on Friday. A pinch of sibling rivalry added to the competitiveness of the evening. OSU senior middle blocker Taylor Sandbothe looked through the net at her younger sister, freshman middle blocker Elle Sandbothe. Before the match, Taylor took to Twitter and expressed her excitement at the opportunity to play “her best friend.” The front row match-up would prove to be a factor during the entire match.The Buckeyes made their presence known from the beginning of the first set. A variety of hitters went to work, which resulted in an early 9-1 run for OSU. As Kansas State closed in on the OSU lead, the arena erupted, showing the home team support for the Wildcats. Sophomore setter Taylor Hughes wrangled in the final two kills of the set to give the Buckeyes the 1-0 advantage. OSU jumped out to an early lead again to start the second set, but the Wildcats weren’t letting the Buckeyes escape without putting up a fight. Kansas State battled to put the score within two points at 14-12, but OSU’s consistency and patience shone through to maintain control of the lead. Elle Sandbothe assisted on a major block for Kansas State, but it was immediately followed by a kill from her sister, Taylor. OSU held a narrow lead at 24-22, but sealed another set victory with a kill by sophomore outside hitter Audra Appold. After the second set, OSU was hitting .225 collectively, compared to Kansas State’s .056. However, it was the Wildcats who came out of the intermission with the momentum on their side. They held onto the lead for the first time in the match to begin the third set as the Buckeyes’ defense and serve reception began to unravel. OSU came back with aggressive swings and gained the lead for the first time in the third set at 15-14 before a back-and-forth battle ensued between the teams. The Wildcats focused on Taylor Sandbothe’s path and another block by her younger sister shifted the energy back to Kansas State. The Wildcats saw their first set point of the match, and the Buckeyes couldn’t counter back. Despite the Wildcat win, OSU still held the advantage 2-1 going into the fourth set. The Kansas State crowd made their voices heard to start the fourth set, cheering after every point that dropped on OSU’s side. The noise was egged on by the point-for-point play that characterized the entire set. When the dust cleared, it was again Kansas State who stole the set victory and forced a sudden-death final set. Errors are critical any five-set contest, and unforced errors by OSU allowed the Wildcats to take the two-point advantage 8-6 before switching sides of the court. The Buckeyes quickly changed their tone and after a handful of nail-biting final points, OSU claimed the crucial win to stay alive in the NCAA tournament. Junior outside hitter Luisa Schirmer combined with Taylor Sandbothe for 36 kills. Sophomore setter Taylor Hughes finished with another triple-double to her name with 14 kills, 41 assists and 15 digs. The Buckeyes are off to the Sweet Sixteen to face Big Ten rival, the Wisconsin Badgers. read more
