Las operadoras respaldan el papel de Qualcomm en la RAN abierta Vodafone today announced a reorganisation of its European leadership structure, including the departure of chief executive for the region, Philipp Humm (pictured).The move follows ongoing speculation that Vodafone’s European operations could be broken up if a deal emerges with US cable operator Liberty Global.As part of the changes, chief executives of Vodafone’s four largest European markets – Hannes Ametsreiter in Germany, Aldo Bisio in Italy, Jeroen Hoencamp in the UK and Antonio Coimbra in Spain – will become members of the group’s executive committee and report directly to group CEO Vittorio Colao, effective from 1 October.Rob Shuter, chief executive of Vodafone Netherlands, completes the line-up and will assume additional leadership responsibilities for Vodafone’s smaller markets.“These changes will simplify and streamline the management of our largest European markets and accelerate our strategic plans in those countries,” said Colao in a statement.The re-jig seemingly leaves no room for Humm, who will leave the company “later in the year to continue his CEO career outside Vodafone”.Colao thanked Humm for his “significant contribution to Vodafone”, and pointed to his integral role in “the recovery of our European businesses “ through acquiring and integrating Ono in Spain, Kabel Deutschland in Germany and Cable & Wireless in the UK.“I fully understand his desire to pursue his career ambitions outside Vodafone in light of the new organisation and wish him all the best for the future,” added Colao.Vodafone confirmed there will be no changes to the leadership structure for the group’s operations in Africa, Middle East and Asia-Pacific.

Talk Africa: Africa’s response to COVID-19 John Nkengasong, Director of the Africa Centres for Disease Control and Prevention. REUTERS/Denis Balibouse/File PhotoAfrica’s fight to contain the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic received a boost after the Mastercard Foundation announced it had committed $40 million to the Africa Centres for Disease Control and Prevention (Africa CDC) Partnership to Accelerate COVID-19 Testing (PACT).The funds will be used to purchase 1 million test kits, as well as train and deploy 10,000 community healthcare workers and 80 surveillance rapid responders to support contact tracing, the Foundation said in a statement.The announcement is welcome news as public health experts recently sounded a warning over the low supplies of COVID-19 testing kits in Africa.The testing capacities of African countries have been limited due to international competition for test kits and poor global coordination of resources. This has forced different countries to implement various testing strategies.Under the PACT initiative, the Africa CDC is working with Member States and several partners to support pooled procurement, storage and distribution of diagnostics and other medical supplies; testing of at least 10 million individuals; and deployment of one million community workers and community healthcare workers.The Foundation added that the funds will also strengthen the Africa CDC’s capacity to oversee a continental response to the pandemic.Africa CDC will undertake the COVID-19 response measures in partnership with the African Field Epidemiology Network (AFENET), according to the Foundation.Africa has so far reported lower total infections than other continents with this phenomenon attributed in part to the swift and decisive interventions by governments. However, another attribution is the low testing rate across the continent leading some to speculate that the numbers could be higher than thought.Some experts fear that the early success by African nations in containing the spread of the virus could be negated by the lack of supply of testing kits.Africa CDC Director John Nkengansong said that Africa needed greater cooperation with all stakeholders as the pandemic was still on the rise in the continent as evidenced by the daily figures being released.We need to equip, deploy and train more healthcare workers as quickly as possible, and we expect that there will be more cooperation and solidarity through PACT,” Nkengasong said.Mastercard Foundation President and CEO Reeta Roy praised the pan-African response to COVID-19 led by Africa CDC and regional organizations noting they created a clear plan and targets to deliver a robust health response and save lives.The Mastercard Foundation stands with the Africa CDC and calls on other funders to support this excellent plan. Fighting this pandemic requires all of us to coordinate our efforts and work together,” Roy said.Related Talk Africa: COVID-19 and Food Security COVID-19 war balloons Africa’s spending

Towns led UK with 6 points while three others — Aaron Harrison, Trey Lyles and Devin Booker — chipped in five apiece.Tweet by Pat FordeWhile the Cats matched the Tigers with 7 turnovers apiece, gaffes at the defensive end bothered John Calipari most.“It’s like every other team we play,” the coach said. “If we stop, they’re going to make the shot, because it’s their only chance at a pretty look.”See a full box score: http://bit.ly/1BwCPwJTowns at the end of the 1st half2:13, 1H: Mizzou big man Ryan Rosburg’s come off the bench to score 6 points, with his last bucket a dunk that ended UK’s run.

Meanwhile, with the advantage of platoons, UK’s playing Marcus Lee with a pair of whistles and leading 26-21.6:55, 1H: The boos on every Devin Booker touch persist.

When the Cats freshman hit a 3-pointer, they booed. When he had a shot swatted, they cheered. UK leads 10-7.Tweet by Pat FordeThere is no dunking allowed sir.15:37, 1H: In comes the second platoon. The first did its job, limiting Mizzou to three points in the game’s first segment. The Tigers are struggling offensively to even move the ball inside the 3-point arc on UK’s length. The Cats lead 6-3.Mizzou coach Kim Anderson, speaking to ESPN at the break, said he told his team during the first media timeou, “Relax — relax.”17:00, 1H: Dominique Hawkins opened with a 3-pointer, Andrew Harrison made the most of a Mizzou turnover to score an old-fashioned three-point play, and the Tigers have opened 0 of 4 from the field.

We’ll see if John Calipari subs five for five after going away from it recently.Tweet by Kyle TuckerPREGAME: Kentucky is 7-0 all time against Missouri, including this season’s 86-37 thrashing that followed the Cats’ two close calls to open SEC play. Odds are, the Cats will make it 8-0.At VegasInsider.com, UK enters tonight’s game a 17.5-point favorite to move to 20 and give the program its best start under coach John Calipari.Stick with this blog before, during and after for score updates, stats and a look at what local and national college basketball experts have to say about the Cats.

Pandemonium broke out in Linden, Region 10 (Upper Demerara- Berbice) shortly before 09:00h on Tuesday,The Mackenzie-Wismar Bridge from which the woman leapedas a young woman ended her life by jumping off the Mackenzie-Wismar Bridge.According to reports, the woman identified as 24-year-old Tabhita Small of South Amelia’s Ward, Mackenzie, was earlier seen at the Linden Hospital Complex (LHC).A Police source in Linden confirmed that the woman was diagnosed with tuberculosis approximately two years ago and was admitted to the LHC around 15:10h on Monday after experiencing a series of fainting spells.This newspaper understands that she was discharged from the Hospital at approximately 08:30h on Tuesday and went straight to the Bridge.An employee attached to the Bridge told this newspaper that she saw the young woman approaching the western end of the Bridge several times, as she paced back and forth from the eastern to the western end. Upon approaching the western end of the bridge, for the final time, before she made the fatal jump, she was reportedly engaged in an altercation with another young woman whom she reportedly unexpectedly walked up to and began hitting. According to an eyewitness, Small approached a shop located a few yards away from the Bridge and was chased away by the occupants. The woman who operates the shop told this newspaper that Small walked up to her daughter who was preparing to leave the shop for work at the time and landed a “cuff” to her face, to which she retaliated by hitting her. According to the woman, the suicide victim appeared troubled.“She (my daughter) bend to pick up her bag to go to work and she just give she one cuff. She never see the girl, we don’t know the girl, but when I was sitting at the hospital shed, I see this girl pass…She was barefoot and she hair was untidy…When you looked at the girl’s face, she pretty young; I average she to be 20 or lil’ bit over 20. But I never see this girl before…she walked, she go through the train line then she turned back, then she go over the bridge and when she meet in the middle she jump overboard,” the shop owner stated.Following that incident, an eyewitness disclosed that the woman made a failed attempt to jump overboard when the bridge’s barrier was removed, before finally venturing further to the middle where she made the fatal plunge. The eyewitness stated that after the woman went overboard, several persons rushed to the scene in their speedboats; however, they were unsuccessful in rescuing her or retrieving the body.“When I look down, I see she hand go up two times. When I reach down (further down the bridge) the body had already gone down…Everybody saying they never see she,” the eyewitness stated.Up to press time, efforts to retrieve the body proved futile. Police in Linden confirmed that statements were taken from several witnesses and a diving party was dispatched to the location on Tuesday morning and was expected to continue the search for the body on Tuesday afternoon or this morning. Investigations are ongoing.
The Blue Ridge National Heritage Area Partnership (BRNHA) announced the award of 21 grants totaling $180,000 to help support projects across the North Carolina mountains and foothills, focusing on craft, music, natural heritage, Cherokee culture, and agricultural traditions. These five facets of the region’s heritage earned the 25 counties of Western North Carolina a Congressional designation as the Blue Ridge National Heritage Area in 2003.“These grant awards will support community projects across Western North Carolina,” said Angie Chandler, Executive Director of BRNHA. “By spotlighting our cultural traditions and natural wonders, we help sustain these assets, build community pride, draw more visitors, and grow the regional economy.”The 21 grant awards include:Altapass Foundation: $5,500 to develop a Cherokee history exhibit for the Historic Orchard at AltapassAsheville Museum of Science: $7,000 to develop an immersive video exhibit showcasing the region’s geologic and natural historyBlue Ridge Parkway Foundation: $16,000 to develop a vision plan to increase recreation opportunities while protecting natural resources at the recently expanded Waterrock Knob property on the Blue Ridge ParkwayClay County Communities Revitalization Association: $2,850 for a music heritage sculpture in downtown HayesvilleCowee School Arts & Heritage Center: $6,600 for an outdoor stage at the historic Cowee School to expand the capacity to present traditional music concertsFriends of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park: $5,000 to construct a historic “snake” style fence for the park’s Mountain Farm MuseumGrandfather Mountain Stewardship Foundation: $4,000 for interpretive trail signs highlighting forest ecology, resources, and wildlifeJackson County: $10,000 to develop interpretive wayside exhibits along the new Jackson County GreenwayMadison County Arts Council: $5,000 for a portable sound system to support traditional music events around the countyMainspring Conservation Trust: $9,890 to develop interpretive signage and improve trail access for a Cherokee-themed cultural corridor along NC Highway 28 in Macon CountyThe North Carolina Arboretum Society: $8,000 for an outdoor forest heritage exhibit at the North Carolina ArboretumOne Dozen Who Care, Inc.: $5,000 to develop exhibits on the music traditions of African American communities in partnership with Western Carolina UniversityPeacock Performing Arts Center: $2,225 for a new sound system to support music performancesPenland School of Crafts: $7,850 for a new historic timeline exhibit and improved visitor signageSouthern Highland Craft Guild: $16,000 to develop new e-commerce capability to market and sell the work of guild artistsSouthern Highlands Reserve: $16,000 for a project to restore red spruce to endangered spruce-fir forest habitat in the Great Balsam MountainsSurry Arts Council: $8,000 to expand and improve backstage space for musicians performing at the Historic Earle Theatre in downtown Mount AiryToe River Arts Council: $12,000 for interactive informational kiosks directing visitors to craft galleries, studios, and festivals in Mitchell and Yancey countiesWestern North Carolina Historical Association: $8,085 to support a music heritage exhibit and related educational programs at the Smith-McDowell House MuseumWilkes Heritage Museum: $10,000 to expand the museum’s Blue Ridge Music Hall of Fame exhibit and event spaceWill & Deni McIntyre Foundation: $15,000 to support the national broadcast of David Holt’s State of Music series which showcases Western North Carolina’s bluegrass, old-time, and gospel traditionsAll of the grant awards will be matched with state or local funding and donated services.Because the Wilkes Heritage Museum project involves renovations to the old Wilkes Courthouse, the grant is undergoing additional consultation by the State Historic Preservation Office.Since its inception in 2003, the Blue Ridge National Heritage Area Partnership has awarded 154 grants totaling over $2.1 million and leveraging another $4.5 million in matching contributions from local governments and the private sector. These grants have funded projects in all 25 counties of Western North Carolina.The Blue Ridge National Heritage Area Partnership received a total of 44 applications in this grant cycle.
16 August 2005“Four minutes that literally shook the world resulted in the creation of an enormous impact crater,” says Prof Uwe Reimold, professor of Mineralogy in the School of Geosciences at Wits University. “The meteorite that crashed into the earth near Vredefort in the Free State is the single greatest geological catastrophe yet uncovered on our planet.”Meteorite Impact! The Danger from Space is a new book on the Vredefort impact co-authored by Reimold and Prof Roger Gibson. The book explains how the lessons learned from the rocks around Vredefort are being used throughout the world to teach a new generation of scientists of the reality, and danger, of similar events in the future.“The book reviews more than 200 000 years of human habitation in this area of exceptional natural beauty and biodiversity,” says Reimold. The impact area, known as the Vredefort Dome, was awarded Unesco World Heritage status in July.“This history starts with the early San hunters, whose graceful art survives today on rocks formed during the impact event. The successive settlements of Sotho-Tswana, Afrikaner and British farmers are discussed, including the landmark wars that affected the region over the last three centuries.“The book also documents the rich geological, archaeological, cultural and botanical heritage presented by the Vredefort region, opening up the information to non-geoscientists. It concludes with a guide to more than 20 sites that highlight the heritage of this area, a World Heritage Site,” Reimold says.Bigger than the dinosaur killerThe Vredefort structure is the oldest and largest visible meteor impact crater in the world. At about 300km it diameter it is nearly twice the size of the Chicxulub crater, formed by the meteor impact that led to the extinction of the dinosaurs.“The Chicxulub impact wiped out approximately 75% of all known life on Earth 65 million years ago,” says Reimold.“In the more than 2 000 million years since the formation of the Vredefort structure, water, wind and ice have slowly eroded away the original crater, exposing its roots in a series of spectacular rocks.“The outcroppings in the region around the towns of Vredefort and Parys, known as the Vredefort Dome, show the scars of the cataclysmic forces that accompanied the impact event.“The rocks, ripped from the depths of the crust by the impact, also tell a far older story that stretches back to more than 3 500 million years ago, when the first continents formed on the primitive Earth, and to the time when fabulous gold deposits accumulated on the margins of the ancient Witwatersrand sea.” Meteorite Impact!

Website Grader has grown a lot since it launched it 8 months ago, and it recently reached a total of over 100,000 websites graded. As of this week, Website Grader has over 15,000 inbound links, 1,500 bookmarks on Del.icio.us and an Alexa rank of under 24,000.What are the key takeaways you can use to achieve the same results? You both need to get a little lucky and also build something remarkable. (OK, so I stole this from Seth Godin. But that doesn’t make it less true.) Here are some of the reasons why I think people like to talk and blog about Website Grader so much.1) Make the “Time To Enjoyment” (TTE) short. We use the acronym TTE within HubSpot to talk about the amount of time it takes for someone to get value out of a product. For buying enterprise software, the TTE is long, usually months or years. For buying a cup of coffee it is really short, usually a few seconds. We try our best with all of our products to have the customer get something useful as quickly as possible, and then also have that value increase over time. But, the faster someone says “oh cool, that’s valuable” the happier your customers will be. And the more they will tell others.2) Make it free. We could have charged for Website Grader. We have had SEO consultants tell us they charge anywhere from $1500 to $5000 for a very similar report that they call an “initial assessment”. We could have easily charged $99 and sold tons of reports and made a lot of money. But our goal was to build something remarkable, not make money right away. So Website Grader is a free SEO Tool, and we plan to keep it free.3) Don’t require registration. Sure, we could make Website Grader more valuable to HubSpot if we required you to tell us your name, title, company, phone number, annual sales, number of employees, annual marketing budget and a good time of day to call you. But you wouldn’t like it as much and we probably would never get to the point of having evaluated 100,000 URLs.4) Ask for feedback and listen. We’re always asking people what they think about it and what they would change. We actually found about 50 bloggers that seemed like they knew what they were talking about and emailed them asking them to use it and give us feedback to make it better. A lot of them responded, and some actually wrote a review and linked to Website Grader. We didn’t ask for it or plan on it. We really did want their feedback (and we still do), but this shows that people are much more likely to promote something if you are not asking them to promote it in your first conversation with them. In fact, there have been dozens of enhancements made to Website Grader since it first launched. This has two effects. First, it makes the product better so more people will like it. Second, the person who gave us the feedback feels like we listened to them and value their input so now they love Website Grader even more since they feel like it is something they helped create (in fact, it’s true!).If you have other ideas why Website Grader has grown so much, leave a comment so the community can learn from your insight.
