first_imgArcata >> Now three weeks out, the Humboldt State women’s basketball team can look to a tough loss in Portland as what was the turning point in their season to date.It was that 70-58 loss to Concordia where HSU saw its record fall to 1-4. But it was also after that loss where an early-season gut-check happened.“Our Concordia game, we really had a poor performance — and that didn’t sit well with the players or the coaches, obviously,” Humboldt State head coach Michelle Bento-Jackson said. “I …last_img

The Future of Mobile Tagging in Marketing, Branding & Communications

first_imgA recent report released by research consultancy PSFK looks at the key trends occurring within the mobile tagging space – that is, the trends associated with the use of mobile barcodes, QR codes and Microsoft Tags. In particular, the report looks at usage and development from the branding and marketing angle, to determine the many ways in which companies have adopted barcode tagging to better communicate with their customers.While that may be too narrow a focus to dub the report “The Future of Mobile Tagging,” as it’s being called, it’s an interesting read nonetheless. We’ve included it below courtesy of Slideshare, so you can read through the report for yourself.Mobile Tagging: Bridging the Offline and the Online WorldsSays PSFK, mobile tagging helps to bridge the offline and online worlds, allowing a business’s customers to interact with the company or brand. In the case of a product scan, for example, the customer can access information that helps them decide whether or not to purchase the item, by reading ratings, reviews and checking out price comparisons. Or the tags can be used to sample a product prior to purchase, like sampling tracks from a new album or watching a trailer for a new movie.In other cases, mobile tags can augment the information available to the customer – such as by providing them with helpful set-up instructions or some other type of how-to, post purchase.Barcoded tags can also be used to engage users, drive a brand’s awareness or deliver incentives that lead customers to purchase. Tags can be used in gaming, in travel and even to deliver real-time updates to the end user who scans a tag that directs them to some sort of real-time data source, like an online, updated public transportation schedule.The Future of Mobile Tagging ReportIt should be noted that PSFK report is sponsored by Microsoft Tag, but it doesn’t seem to be biased towards that particular technology in its discussion of the use cases for mobile tagging. Instead, it simply offers a dedicated section at the end of the report called “How to Mobile Tag,” which talks specifically about Microsoft Tag.The report is available via Slideshare, and below. However, due to the font sizes used, it’s a lot easier to read if you log into Slideshare and download it as a PDF to your computer.PSFK presents Future Of Mobile Tagging Report View more presentations from PSFK.

Trudeau in Manila to pursue deeper trade security ties in AsiaPacific

first_imgMANILA, Philippines – Justin Trudeau landed in the Philippines on Sunday with the goal of raising Canada’s profile in the Asia-Pacific region, especially on security issues and trade.This week, Trudeau will become the first sitting Canadian prime minister to participate in the annual East Asia Summit and is the only one who’s ever been invited, his office said.Foreign Affairs Minister Chrystia Freeland said that the East Asia Summit will give Trudeau a chair at the top security table in the region.He will sit alongside Chinese President Xi Jinping and U.S. President Donald Trump during discussions on the security situation involving North Korea, she said.“That is a really big deal,” Freeland said of the forum, which is held in conjunction with the annual summit of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations.“Canada has never been there before.”The ASEAN summit itself will give Trudeau an opportunity to raise concerns about human rights and advance his trade agenda with the emerging bloc of 10 Southeast Asian countries, which is already Canada’s sixth-largest trading partner.Combined, the countries boast a market of 640 million people and an expanding middle class. They have been churning out significant economic growth.With the uncertainty surrounding Canada’s NAFTA renegotiation, the Asia-Pacific has become increasingly important in the government’s eyes.Under Liberal and Conservative governments, Ottawa has taken steps in recent years to increase its presence in the region.Canada named its first ambassador dedicated to ASEAN in 2014. In September, the government opened exploratory free-trade talks with the association.“We are very much positioning ourselves in the Asia-Pacific,” International Trade Minister Francois-Philippe Champagne said in an interview before Trudeau left for his week-long trip to the region.Experts, however, say Ottawa has largely failed in the past to maintain a consistent connection with ASEAN members.David Mulroney, a former Canadian ambassador to China, believes forging closer relations with ASEAN should be Ottawa’s second-most important priority in the region after Beijing.Canada, however, has struggled to maintain a disciplined focus on the region and hasn’t been as plugged in with ASEAN as Australia or even the United States, Mulroney added.“When we’re at our best, we are a very popular partner in ASEAN,” said Mulroney, who noted that members of the group still recall a time when Canada was more deeply engaged with them, decades ago.“We haven’t given them reason to believe that it’s anything other than nostalgia, but I think Canada could be a very capable player in the region.”He said ASEAN maintains tighter dialogue partnerships with other countries outside the region, like Russia, the U.S. and Australia.“We have yet to kind of crack that inner circle, in part because there are doubts about our commitment and our staying power,” Mulroney said.Former Quebec premier Jean Charest, now the honorary chair of the Canada-ASEAN Business Council, said in a recent interview that Trump’s protectionist story makes the case every day on the importance of diversifying.Compared to China, Charest said ASEAN is a less-complex partner to work with.“Canadians will have more reservations about China, which doesn’t mean that we should not pursue an initiative with China, but it’s just politically more complicated,” he said.In moving closer to ASEAN, Ottawa would still have to navigate the delicate issue of human rights — particularly amid concerns about serious, state-led violence by two of its members: Myanmar and the Philippines.On Saturday, Trudeau was asked whether he intended to challenge Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte about the deadly, anti-drug crackdown by security forces in his country. The campaign has killed thousands of suspects, most of whom are poor.Trudeau has said he has no one-on-one meeting planned with Duterte, who will host the ASEAN summit.“There are a range of issues that I could bring up with him, that I may bring up with him, if we have an opportunity,” Trudeau told reporters Saturday in Danang, Vietnam.“There’s always human rights concerns to bring up with a wide range of leaders.”On Sunday, Freeland said Canada has “some serious concerns about human rights violations and violations of due process in the Philippines.”“If we get the opportunity, we will talk about these issues,” said Freeland, who added that she raised them in a meeting last summer with the Philippines’ deputy minister of foreign affairs.David Welch, CIGI chair of global security at the Balsillie School of International Affairs, said ASEAN countries likely wouldn’t appreciate Canada pressuring them on these issues, which could put Trudeau in an awkward position as he tries to deepen the relationship.“They don’t want us to talk about human rights,” Welch said.The ASEAN bloc includes the Philippines, Indonesia, Brunei, Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand, Vietnam, Laos, Cambodia and Myanmar.Trudeau’s visit to Manila is the last stop in his week-long trip to the region, which included an official bilateral visit with Vietnam and the APEC leaders’ summit.—Follow @AndyBlatchford on Twitterlast_img read more

Not creating jobs or lying about creation of jobs?” Chidambaram asked in a tweet, alleging that the National Democratic Alliance government was guilty of both. “The top three issues in the elections will be jobs, jobs and jobs.” “Glad that CII (Confederation of Indian Industry) has found its voice and has exposed the government’s bogus claims on job creation.

Lakers Dwight Howard Primed For 2016 Olympics

Los Angeles Lakers center Dwight Howard shared his emotions Thursday with reporters about the time in 2012 when he learned that he would not play in the London Olympics.“I was pissed off,” Howard said. “I was mad I couldn’t play in the playoffs. I was mad I couldn’t play in the Olympics. I was pissed. I was looking forward to going to London. I was looking forward to making a big run in the playoffs last season, so I wasn’t too happy about the fact that I had to have surgery and miss a lot of basketball.”Howard, who won Olympic gold with the U.S. in the 2008 Beijing Games, missed the chance to repeat at the London Games to recover from back surgery. However, Howard said he is ready to join the team for the 2016 Olympics in Rio de Janeiro.The ultimate decision of whether Howard plays is up to USA Basketball managing director Jerry Colangelo. Howard said that he has maintained a close relationship with Colangelo.“He’s cool with me,” Howard said. “He’s always been someone that I’ve thought highly of and he’s always supported me.”Howard said Colangelo invited him to play with 2012 team before his back injury.“We were looking forward to it,” Howard said. “He was one of the first people that contacted me and asked me if I wanted to play. I was very excited about it. I wanted to play. He said, ‘OK.’ ”With one piece of the roster filled out, now all Colangelo has to do is find a new head coach.Duke basketball coach Mike Krzyzewski announced earlier this week on ESPN Radio that he would not continue his head coaching duties with Team USA.But when the Rio de Janeiro Games roll around, Howard will be 30 years old, but for now he is not concerned about who the coach will be when that time comes.“My only concern right now is winning a championship with the Lakers and how we can get better,” Howard said. “I can’t control what happens in the Olympics.” read more
