Asian stocks rise on hopes US China will unwind dispute

first_imgSINGAPORE — Asian shares were mostly higher Monday on hopes that U.S. President Donald Trump and his Chinese counterpart Xi Jinping will unwind a blistering trade dispute at a meeting this week.KEEPING SCORE: Japan’s benchmark Nikkei 225, reopening after a holiday, added 0.8 per cent to 21,815.55. South Korea’s Kospi jumped 1 per cent to 2,077.25. Hong Kong’s Hang Seng index rebounded 1.3 per cent to 26,251.11. The Shanghai Composite dipped 0.1 per cent to 2,577.36. Australia’s S&P/ASX 200 lost 0.7 per cent to 5,674.90. Shares rose in Taiwan, Singapore and the Philippines, but fell in Indonesia.WALL STREET: Energy companies led a slide in U.S. stocks on Friday, as a plunge in oil prices weighed on sentiment. Trading volume was lighter than usual as markets were only open for a half day after the Thanksgiving break. The S&P 500 index fell 0.7 per cent to 2,632.56, racking up its second correction of the year. It is now down 10.2 per cent from its last all-time high set on Sept. 20. The Nasdaq composite shed 0.5 per cent to 6,938.98 and the Dow Jones Industrial Average dropped 0.7 per cent to 24,285.95. The Russell 2000 index of smaller-company stocks was less than 0.1 per cent higher at 1,488.68.TRUMP-XI MEETING: Presidents Trump and Xi will meet at the Group of 20 summit in Buenos Aires at the end of the week. A trade dispute over Beijing’s technology policy, which has caused them to impose tariffs on billions of dollars of each other’s goods, is likely at the top of the agenda. Investors are watching to see if the leaders can arrive at an agreement to ease tensions that have been weighing on corporate earnings and the global economy.ANALYST’S TAKE: “As the current round of U.S.-Chinese trade talks only restarted in the last few weeks, hopes of a trade deal at this juncture could be too optimistic,” Chang Wei Liang of Mizuho Bank said in a market commentary. “However, an agreement for talks over dinner suggests a higher level of engagement, which could result in a gentlemen’s agreement not to escalate tariffs further.”BREXIT DEAL: The European Union and Britain have finally sealed an agreement governing the latter’s departure from the bloc on March 29. This comes after months of hesitation, stop-and-start negotiations and resignations. British Prime Minister Theresa May must now get her divided Parliament to back the deal, which leaves Britain subject to rules and obligations of the bloc at least until the end of 2020 and possibly longer. She is facing intense opposition from pro-Brexit and pro-EU lawmakers alike.JAPAN PMI: A private survey released on Monday showed Japanese manufacturing slowing in November. The Markit/JMMA flash purchasing managers’ index fell to 51.8 in November from 52.9 in the previous month. New orders slipped into contraction territory for the first time since September 2016. Numbers above 50 on the index show acceleration.ENERGY: Oil prices recovered after plunging on worries that a slowing global economy could hurt demand for oil. Benchmark U.S. crude added 30 cents to $50.72. The contract plunged $4.21 to close at $50.42 in New York. Brent crude, the international standard, rose 59 cents to $59.39. It finished $3.80 lower at $58.80 in London.CURRENCIES: The dollar strengthened to 113.24 yen from 112.96 yen late Friday. The euro fell to $1.1335 from $1.1339.Annabelle Liang, The Associated Presslast_img read more

Kosovo progress made thus far demands continuing commitment from parties Security Council

“Reaching equitable compromises, those which overcome legacies from the conflict and produce tangible benefit to both sides, is not limited only to the terms of the First Agreement reached on 19 April 2013,” said Farid Zarif, addressing the 15-member Council for the last time in his capacity as head of the UN Interim Administration Mission in Kosovo (UNMIK).On 25 August, the top leaders from each side will meet once again, seeking accord on issues where differences, while narrowed, still remain. “During the coming days, it is my hope that the dialogue will expand to include other difficult issues, which continue to burden relations,” he explained, citing the fate of missing persons and compensations for their families; the revitalisation of transport and commercial links; the complex issues surrounding property; and the return and settlement of refugees and internally displaced persons; as well as the status of the Orthodox Church.Briefing the Council about the situation in Kosovo over the last three months, Mr. Zarif started by commending the critically important step taken its institutions in August, when the Assembly passed the requisite constitutional amendment and the laws on the establishment of the Specialist Chambers and Specialist Prosecutor’s Office. Marking progress on the judiciary, these legislative acts fully accord with Kosovo and the European Union’s agreement, he noted.If delays in finalizing the required framework had become a subject of serious concern, stressed the Special Representative, “the passage of the necessary normative acts and their promulgation yesterday by President Jahjaga, stands as a sign of Kosovo’s increasing determination to meet its fundamental obligations and commitments, which imply full respect for the rule of law and impartial justice; as well as accountability and equality before the law.”One of the challenges Kosovo is facing is the legal protection of cultural and religious heritage sites. “Respect, protection and preservation of the Serbian Orthodox cultural heritage in Kosovo are fundamental duties, and also test of the responsibility of Kosovo’s governing institutions,” underlined Mr. Zarif.Should these fail, he warned, many other important functions and responsibilities may equally fall into question. “It is, therefore, a matter of the utmost importance that the legal framework of protection, enshrined in the constitution of Kosovo, is adhered to with conscientious rigor.”In that regard, Mr. Zarif, who is also the Special Representative of the Secretary-General, commended the firm assurances given to him by Prime Minister Isa Mustafa that a revised version of the draft Law on Cultural Heritage will not be approved by the Cabinet and submitted to the Assembly unless it fully conforms with the relevant provisions of the Constitution.“When I arrived to Kosovo, soon after the events of July 2011, tension was extremely high on the ground. Four years on from that time, the situation differs dramatically,” Mr. Zarif reflected. “No progress is irreversible, of course. I do not wish to suggest that the efforts made to date are yet sufficient to guarantee headway. I do, however, firmly believe that there is objective justification for cautious optimism that this process will continue and produce more tangible results in the interest of all.” read more

BBC criticised for encouraging gardeners to plant foreign trees that could spread

Luke Barley, A National Trust ranger at work felling ash trees infected with dieback near Ilam in the Derbyshire Peak District. Defra's chief plant health officer Professor Nicola Spence  Last year, a Gardeners’ World feature on olive trees said that they were ideal to help create the perfect Mediterranean Garden, but Prof Spence branded the advice “irresponsible” noting that they had been banned from Chelsea Flower Show amid fears Xylella.The disease has ravaged Italy’s olive groves and could decimate UK trees including the oak, elm and sycamore.More than 350 different plants are vulnerable to Xylella, including lavender, rosemary and flowering cherry.But foreign plants can also being other diseases to the British ecosystem. Ash dieback was first officially confirmed in the UK in 2012 when it was found in a consignment of infected trees imported from a nursery in the Netherlands.And fuchsia gall mite, which disfigures plants and is now rife in the South East, has been attributed to an enthusiast illegally importing cuttings from South America. “This is vital if we are going to win the fight to protect our gardens against the growing threat of pests and diseases.”The BBC said that both shows criticised by Prof Spence “Feature advice from horticultural experts and have contributed to the public’s awareness of biosecurity by highlighting the importance of the issue – and will keep audiences updated with any developments which may impact gardeners in the UK.” Defra’s chief plant health officer Professor Nicola Spence Credit:Telegraph A government horticulturalist has criticised BBC gardening shows for encouraging viewers to plant foreign species that risk spreading disease.Defra’s chief plant health officer Prof Nicola Spence branded TV show Gardeners’ World “irresponsible” after a feature on growing olive trees.She said star presenters like Monty Don should not be encouraging gardeners to grow olives because they are a high risk for importing deadly plant disease Xylella fastidiosa.Speaking at a biosecurity event at Tendercare Nurseries in Uxbridge, west London, last week Prof Spence said: “Gardening trends can drive biosecurity behaviour.”I like to watch Gardeners’ World on a Friday night and to listen to Gardeners’ Question Time, but I occasionally have a bit of a rage at them and take to Twitter when I think they’re not providing the best advice, particularly when a listener – somebody in the audience – says ‘I’ve just brought back X from my holidays. What should I do with it?’ Luke Barley, A National Trust ranger at work felling ash trees infected with dieback near Ilam in the Derbyshire Peak District.Credit:Andrew Fox Recently, the Royal Horticultural Society’s director general Sue Biggs warned holidaymakers off bringing foreign plants back to Britain.”For many people, wandering the olive groves of Italy and lavender fields of France are as much a part of the holiday experience as the cities and beaches,” she said.”But we’re asking people to leave these beautiful plants where they are for future visitors to enjoy and not to bring them back home with them. “And I’m screaming ‘destroy’ and they get advised to go and plant it in their garden.”Prof Spence also warned against buying plants from overseas online.She said: “Just because it’s available on Amazon doesn’t necessarily mean it’s actually legal and we are constantly working with Amazon and eBay to track down material that is not compliant.” Want the best of The Telegraph direct to your email and WhatsApp?

Jamaican man kills commonlaw wife and teen stepdaughter

(JAMAICA OBSERVER) An enraged security guard who butchered his common-law wife and her teenaged daughter at their St James home yesterday morning later killed himself by driving over the Flat Bridge into the Rio Cobre in St Catherine, where he drowned.Student Jayshenel GordonThe guard has been identified as Fabian Lyewsang, while the murder victims are 45-year-old gas station supervisor Deon Smith and her 16- year-old daughter Jayshenel Gordon; all of Rose Mount in St James.Reports are that Lyewsang, who fled the murder scene in Smith’s motor car with his 13-year-old son aboard, subsequently left the child at a family member’s house in Eltham Park, St Catherine, before taking the plunge.According to Crime Officer for Area One Superintendent Michael Phipps, about 2:00 am yesterday Lyewsang called one of Smith’s family members, informing her of the carnage.Other members of the family were subsequently alerted and went to the house where the gruesome discovery was made.The blood-drenched body of Smith was found in a section of the house, while her daughter was found upstairs in her bed. Both victims had their throats slashed.Yesterday morning several shell-shocked community members gathered in front of the gate to the house where the bizarre double murder was committed.“The boy wicked, him never have to kill them,” a female community member in dialogue with members of the large gathering was overheard saying.Danny, a community member, had fond memories of the gas station supervisor.“Me know her as a good person, a jovial person, a person who help people and dem way deh, so me never a look fi nothing like this happen because they (couple) always alright,” he recalled.Deon Smith and Fabian Lyewsang in undated photoAnother community member who gave her name only as Rosalee, also described Smith as a loving person.“She look after everybody. Friends come there and she treat everybody good. She was a loving girl,” the grief stricken woman said.She noted that from time to time she would hear the common-law couple arguing.“We feel bad about it because sometimes we hear the man quarrelling with her and we go and talk to her and it quiet down and me never know that things was going on.

Nokia Windows Phone 7 Sea Ray device leaked on video again

first_imgEarlier this year, Nokia set off a chain of spit-takes around the world by announcing that it was going to move away from Symbian. Of course, that didn’t come as a complete surprise since reports had also previously pegged a move from Symbian to Maemo by 2012. The announcement that Windows Phone 7 was the new platform of choice rocked Espoo and Nokia workers took to the streets in protest.The dust has settled now, and everyone is waiting patiently for Nokia to show off its first Windows Phone 7 device again. CEO Stephen Elop teased the public with a brief glimpse of the Sea Ray back in June. The phone looked an awful lot like the Nokia N9, which was introduced just the day before Elop’s presentation.AdChoices广告Apart from that early glimpse, all we knew was that the Sea Ray would be arriving after the Windows Phone 7.5 Mango update was good to go. With it now looking like Mango could be ready as early as August, it certainly seems like production lines ought to be cranking somewhere if Nokia plans to put Sea Ray on retail shelves.And if a leaked video that’s making the rounds is any indication, the wheels may indeed be in motion. Supposedly captured right on the factory floor, the Sea Ray is shown off in a bit more detail. No specs are revealed, but the video does show that Sea Ray includes hardware buttons and is already running Windows Phone 7 Mango build 7710, which is an RTM. It also doesn’t look like the svelte Sea Ray sports a front-facing camera, which will be a downer for those of you hoping that you’d be able to make video calls once an app like Fring or Skype shows up.More at WP Centrallast_img read more

Overclocked Ivy Bridge chips run much hotter than Sandy Bridge

first_imgWhenever a new processor line gets released by Intel or AMD, the enthusiasts are usually the first to pick them up. As well as enjoying the increased stock performance, many also decide to overclock their chip to see how much extra performance can be squeezed out.However, anyone who has overclocked a Sandy Bridge processor successfully may be in for a shock when they pick up an Ivy Bridge part. It has been discovered through testing that Ivy Bridge runs significantly hotter when overclocked. By significantly, I mean as much as 20 degrees Celsius more at the same clock speed.The Tech Report did a real-world test where they pitted a Sandy Bridge Core i7-2600K against an Ivy Bridge Core i7-3770K. Both chips were pushed to 4.9GHz using air cooling and the results logged.The power use was slightly higher for the 3770K (236w vs. 231w), voltages were almost the same, but again Ivy Bridge was a little higher (1.368V vs. 1.381V). Heat is where the two chips really differed, though. At 4.9GHz the Sandy Bridge chip held a steady 80 degrees Celsius, but Ivy Bridge was at 100 degrees Celsius. That may still be within operational limits, but suggests anyone wanting to run an overclocked Ivy Bridge is going to have to invest in some better cooling.As for why there is such a big difference in temperatures, the culprit is most likely going to be the change Intel has made to the thermal interface. Sandy Bridge chips use a fluxless solder for the link between the CPU and the heat spreader. Ivy Bridge has switched to thermal paste, which is less efficient at dissipating heat.Intel has confirmed the additional temperature is down to “different package thermal technology” and a “higher thermal density” for the Ivy Bridge chips. Neither of which are going to change, so if you intend to overclock one of these new chips, be sure to invest in rock solid cooling.More at The Tech Reportlast_img read more

3XY forced off air by accident

first_imgMelbourne’s Greek radio station 3XY has been forced off-air since Thursday night as a result of damage done to their transmission mast in Werribee.Private contractors laying drainage pipes adjacent to the mast inadvertently brought it down when they snapped a guide wire holding up the 40 metre high transmission mast. 3XY General Manager Spiros Alatsas said to NKEE that the station will be off air for at least one week as the station will need to purchase a new transmission mast from Western Australia. Due to technical factors the station cannot use another transmission tower for broadcasting. Station management are endeavouring to get the station back on air as soon as possible and ask that their listeners be patient. Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagramlast_img

Police dismantle major armed robbery ring

first_img Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagram Police in Attica said that they had detained five suspected members of a violent criminal ring believed to have used Kalashnikov assault rifles and other heavy weaponry to carry out at least 49 armed raids on jewelry stores, supermarkets and homes as well as muggings over the past year.The ring members – one Greek and four Albanians, all aged between 23 and 30 – were traced following several months of police investigation following the arrest of another suspected member of the ring last October – a 25-year-old Albanian.In raids on two suspected hideouts – in Haidari and Patissia, west and north of the center of Athens – police turned up four Kalashnikovs, three revolvers, three pistols 1,000 rounds of ammunition, six hand grenades, explosives and four bulletproof vests.Ring members are alleged to have used Kalashnikovs and other weapons to threaten their victims and opened fire on two occasions, injuring two people.Source: Kathimerinilast_img read more

Popular Mechanics Spins DigiMag Feature Into Promo

first_imgAll in all, pulling out individual iPad issue features as a standalone is a very good idea. Magazines need to find ways of highlighting their best creative efforts on this medium more effectively and promote their experiences with readers outside the Newsstand venue and business model. We can imagine magazines issuing year-end “best of” iPad issues that pull together some of their best interactive features, for instance. Or a publisher of like-minded titles might pull together strong examples of iPad development from across their portfolio to promote the line. QuakeTracker is an animated and interactive history of earthquake activity in the U.S. It works in two modes, one that recounts the ten biggest seismic events in the 48 continental states since 1860 and another that zooms in to just the most recent weeks.The map uses captivating information design to represent the activity. Large columns of bouncing dots represent population density of areas in the U.S. A timeline autoruns through the major instances of activity. And a set of yellow concentric circles indicate both the size and the depth of each quake. The user can manipulate the map by zooming but also tilting the map to see depth of the quake. Every month magazines are trying to innovate in their digital tablet editions. We have seen a number of cool interactive features embedded in the iPad magazines we have tapped and swiped our way through over the past year or more. The problem is, some of the coolest stuff gets buried or forgotten as the subsequent issues pile up. Popular Mechanics has come up with a good way to reuse some of that creativity by spinning out its QuakeTracker feature from an early iPad issue into a free standalone app that promotes the fee-based iPad monthly. Throughout the app the user is prompted to subscribe to the iPad version of the magazine. The promotion is not especially intrusive or irritating, but it helps make the case that Popular Mechanics is not just re-purposing print in its tablet version. By spinning out one of its more visually striking and entertaining app features, the magazine has created a deft promotional tool. Missing perhaps is more detail about what the full digital magazine has to offer each month. Would it have been so hard to include some sample content?But there is a caveat to app-ifying a single feature from the context of a larger content experience. As a magazine feature, the QuakeTracker operated well in a modified lean-back mode. The two ways of viewing the recent and long-term timeline work with an autorun timeline. Within the context of perusing a magazine that automated experience feels about right. The user can always drag the timeline forward to highlight events at a quicker pace, but the app lacks a pause button that lets you dwell easily on a given event. You always feel as if you are pushed along by the neverending flow. To be sure, this little nit doesn’t ruin an otherwise strong experience in data visualization. But magazine developers should be thinking about how some of their smart in-app features may need more tweaking when asked to stand alone.

Researchers show how historical contingencies constrained evolution of a yeast regulatory network

first_img More information: Intersecting transcription networks constrain gene regulatory evolution, Nature (2015) DOI: 10.1038/nature14613AbstractEpistasis—the non-additive interactions between different genetic loci—constrains evolutionary pathways, blocking some and permitting others. For biological networks such as transcription circuits, the nature of these constraints and their consequences are largely unknown. Here we describe the evolutionary pathways of a transcription network that controls the response to mating pheromone in yeast. A component of this network, the transcription regulator Ste, has evolved two different modes of binding to a set of its target genes. In one group of species, Ste binds to specific DNA binding sites, while in another lineage it occupies DNA indirectly, relying on a second transcription regulator to recognize DNA. We show, through the construction of various possible evolutionary intermediates, that evolution of the direct mode of DNA binding was not directly accessible to the ancestor. Instead, it was contingent on a lineage-specific change to an overlapping transcription network with a different function, the specification of cell type. These results show that analysing and predicting the evolution of cis-regulatory regions requires an understanding of their positions in overlapping networks, as this placement constrains the available evolutionary pathways.

In their paper published in the journal Nature, the team describes how they conducted a genetic analysis of brewer’s yeast in a way that allowed them to gain a new perspective on the regulatory network that led to the current genome of the group of fungi. Aaron New and Ben Lehner of Universitat Pompeu Fabra in Spain, offer a News & Views piece on the work done by the team in the same journal issue.center_img This document is subject to copyright. Apart from any fair dealing for the purpose of private study or research, no part may be reproduced without the written permission. The content is provided for information purposes only. Evolution of a natural gene network explored by Yale researchers Journal information: Nature In this research effort, the team looked at historical contingency—where a sequence of events led to a present state in a biological context. In ordinary life, historical contingencies occur all the time, looking over the life a person has lived, for example, would reveal many such instances, where decisions were made that led to a new state, and where another decision was eventually made based on what had occurred thus far, and on and on—mapping historical contingencies over time leads to what is known as a regulatory network—a depiction that illustrates the impact of all the contingencies that have occurred. In the biological sciences historical contingencies apply to evolutionary changes that occur over a certain period of time, and the regulatory network allows researchers to see which changes were contingent on which prior changes. Such work is challenging, which is why the researchers chose brewer’s yeast to study—not only does it have a reasonably simple genome, as New and Lehner, point out, but there are also genetic engineering tools that have been developed for its study that can be adapted for use across more than one species.Studying historical contingency in organisms works because of the way genetics works—as a trait evolves, the genome changes. Also, sometimes, changes that occur are lost due to changes in the environment, but the genome retains some of the DNA that came about due to the original change, and that too can be used in creating a regulatory network. In this new work, the researches reconstructed the evolutionary path of two mating types in brewer’s yeast, dubbed “a” and “α”—both cause genes to be switched on when exposed to pheromones. As part of their analysis they were able to show the evolutionary path that the types took as each was impacted by events, leading to contingencies and thus were able to construct a regularity network. They were also able to show, as New and Lehner, note that understanding the evolution of individual genes must involve the evolution of regulatory networks.last_img read more

New Digital Dawning

first_img Free Webinar | Sept 5: Tips and Tools for Making Progress Toward Important Goals Attend this free webinar and learn how you can maximize efficiency while getting the most critical things done right. 9 min read January 1, 2006 Think about this: Ten years ago, a group of technology experts sat down and envisioned the future of the internet. They imagined the ubiquity of e-mail, that the web would be home to a giant auction house, and that phones would be able to access tiny versions of the online world.Actually, nobody ever predicted what the internet has become today. We were all too busy learning basic HTML tags and trying to remember how to check our e-mail. But that won’t stop us from looking ahead now to the future of the web and what role entrepreneurs will have in it. An exciting world is developing, and growing businesses will be riding the waves as both users and innovators.Who’s in Charge?Sometimes the best way to understand the big picture is to take a look at the smaller brush strokes that make it what it is. Here’s a big trend: decentralization of control. It’s a move toward web users having more power to control their own online experiences. Here are some of the brush strokes: wikis, blogs, podcasts, RSS and mash-ups. You’ve probably heard of most of those, and if you haven’t, you’ll probably hear of them soon.Joe Kraus, co-founder with Graham Spencer of wiki startup JotSpot, has a strong sense of web history. He was one of the original founders of early search engine Excite and is an active angel investor involved with tech companies. His passion these days is wikis-collaborative websites that can be edited by multiple users. “Wikis felt like a useful tool [back in 1993], but for a limited crowd. They were trapped in the land of the nerd. [They’re] more powerful because [they] tap everybody’s knowledge instead of restricting it to a single individual,” says Kraus, 34. Palo Alto, California-based JotSpot, jumping on the larger trend toward decentralized control, has set out to bring wikis into the mainstream.That trend, in fact, has entrepreneurs blogging to their customers, sending out podcasts and gathering news through RSS feeds. These are all relatively new trends that will magnify as the web moves forward. Says Kraus, “I’m a huge believer that the most powerful revolutions in computing are do-it-yourself revolutions.”Web: The Next GenerationTrying to guess where Google is heading is like listening to the sounds of a circus setting up from outside the big-top tent: You know something exciting is going to happen; you just don’t know what. Blogs are burning with speculation, many connecting the dots to the concept of the web as a computing platform. All that guesswork underlines another fundamental shift in the web: the move away from static web pages to a more interactive, real-time environment. It’s the next generation. It’s the Web 2.0. And it’s already underway.Steven Minton, 47, co-founder of web intelligence and search company Fetch Technologies in El Segundo, California, is an entrepreneur working in the thick of the Web 2.0 evolution. “The web is not made for computers; it’s made for people,” says Minton. “The vision of Fetch Technologies is [to make] the web a more productive place for computers to collect information.” That’s also a strong underpinning of the Semantic Web–an intriguing project from web creator Tim Berners-Lee that is aligned with many of the concepts of Web 2.0.What this all means for entrepreneurs is that the way you use the web is shifting. Search engines will be one noticeable area of improvement. Minton looks ahead to what we can expect to see over the next five years: “[You’ll] be able to do a better job of searching because you’ll tell them the type of thing you’re interested in. There will be more automated assistants to help you shop, travel and so forth, and more sophisticated decision-making aids.”Another sign of the changing web environment is AJAX. No, not the cleanser. AJAX–Asynchronous JavaScript and XML–is a web development technique for building interactive web applications so they behave more like regular software that resides on your PC. Some examples of AJAX in use include Google Maps and photo-sharing site Flickr.Says Minton, “One of the most interesting things happening right now is that the leaders–Google, Yahoo! and a few others–are really breaking new ground in a hurry. It’s one of those rare times in history where some of the biggest companies are making the biggest inroads.” This story appears in the January 2006 issue of Entrepreneur.

He would just as soonglance over at a colorful glowing ball and tell you the weatherreport or if the stock market will tank. Welcome to the ThirdWave.The first wave was your standard HTML browser. The second wavewas mobile devices like phones and PDAs that can access onlinecontent. “The Third Wave will be literally thousands ofdifferent devices and designs that show information people careabout in forms that are embedded in things like watches or umbrellahandles, increasing the utility of everyday objects,” saysRose, 38.Ambient’s flagship product, the Ambient Orb, is a frostedglass ball that changes color to indicate changes in the stockmarket.

Their online presence will becomeincreasingly sophisticated [and] personalized to theircustomers,” says Riley. He also sees more businesses adoptingblogs as a way to communicate frequently with customers.It’s early days yet, but entrepreneurs are discoveringonline marketing as an affordable and effective way to reachcustomers. “You’ll see a real explosion in the number ofsmall businesses advertising online,” says Riley.More websites, blogging and online marketing may not be the mostglamorous technological advances, but they are the ones that willimpact your business directly over the next few years. No one canbe sure exactly what the web will look like in five or 10 years,but we have some good guesses. The trends of today will lay thepath for the web of tomorrow, and growing businesses will be in thethick of it all, blazing trails and taking new technologies to thelimit.Gaze Into Microsoft’s CrystalBall…Over at Microsoft, the company has taken its small-businesscustomer service quest to the web with the SmallBusiness Center. It’s part of the larger trend of movingbusiness functions of all kinds to the web. We asked Doug Leland,general manager of small business for Microsoft’s WorldwideSmall and Midmarket Solutions & Partner Group, and FredericDeWulf, Microsoft’s U.S. small business web director, toreflect on the future of the web.Mobile web technology, like online access through smartphones orPDAs, is an intriguing concept for growing businesses.”We’re still in the earlier adopter phase. [Users] arestarting to realize the productivity benefits,” says DeWulf.”It’s growing pretty rapidly in certain industries thathave a higher share of mobile workers.” Not all entrepreneurswill be rushing out to buy Treos for their employees, but as speedsincrease and the technology matures, it will give a leg up tobusinesses that crave mobile access.”Small businesses will leverage the web to move more andmore of their business functionality to the web. It’s startedwhere we are today with e-mail, web hosting and having an internetsite. Communications and marketing leverage of the web is going togrow,” says Leland. He also sees more commerce-oriented onlinebusinesses emerging over the next several years. Along with thatcomes a phenomenon he calls “global competition for localcustomers.” That means the web will become increasinglyimportant for growing businesses, no matter their industry orbrick-and-mortar presence. It’s a wide web world out there, andit’s only going to get bigger.Taking Stock With FlockWho better to offer their views on the future of the web than acouple of cutting-edge web entrepreneurs? Bart Decrem and GeoffreyArone, both in their thirties, are the co-founders of Flock, a new browserbuilt on open-source principles that has social networking and theWeb 2.0 at heart. “Flock is a social browser. The goal is totake the web browser and evolve it the same way the web hasevolved, to something a lot more interactive,” says Arone.Flock’s location in a Palo Alto, California, garage along withthe company’s all-night programming sessions and boundlessenthusiasm are reminiscent of the web boom’s early days.The success of Mozilla’s FireFox has helped loosen InternetExplorer’s grip on the browser market and left the landscapeopen to innovators. Decrem has some thoughts to share with the newcrop of technology entrepreneurs: “The big thing that’sgoing on is that control is shifting from the creators of contentand the publishers of content to the consumers,” he says.”The winning startups have embraced [this shift instead of]fighting and trying to control it.” The Third Wave Register Now »last_img read more

The New Iberia Blues a Dave Robicheaux Novel S

first_img “The New Iberia Blues: a Dave Robicheaux Novel” (Simon and Schuster), by James Lee BurkeJames Lee Burke’s novels have mysteries that light the fuse of the story, but the almost poetic prose sets his novels apart. A boy that detective Dave Robicheaux knew almost 25 years ago left town to pursue his dream of becoming a Hollywood film director. Desmond Cormier found success and moves back with awards and respect. Robicheaux meets him not to congratulate him, but to inquire about the body of a young woman who was found brutally murdered near his property. Cormier says he has no idea what happened, but Robicheaux has his doubts.Soon another suspect becomes the prime candidate when one of Robicheaux’s friends says he saw a man jump off a train and run away. He regrets not reporting it sooner, and it becomes clear that he witnessed the escape of an inmate named Hugo Tillinger who was in prison for murder and arson. He had claimed he was innocent and an organization known for helping prisoners overturn their convictions was looking into his case. The woman who met with Tillinger is Robicheaux’s murder victim. It seems like an open-and-shut case, but evidence and motive are never that transparent.This time the story is not about the mystery itself, but more about the lyrical journey into Robicheaux’s past and present that will keep the readers in awe.Jeff Ayers, The Associated Press This cover image released by Simon & Schuster shows “The New Iberia Blues; A Dave Robicheaux Novel,” by James Lee Burke.
