Why It’s Hard to Make Your Number In December

first_img Essential Reading! Get my 3rd book: Eat Their Lunch “The first ever playbook for B2B salespeople on how to win clients and customers who are already being serviced by your competition.” Buy Now There are a few reasons it’s difficult to make your number in December.Defying the Natural Timeline of Opportunities: When you create an opportunity, there is a certain amount of conversations you need to have with your dream client, and there are certain commitments you need them to make and keep. Let’s assume it takes 6 hours of conversations to move through those commitments in deals that you win and that normally takes 6 different meetings, each meeting with its own specific agenda. Deciding to have 3 meetings of two hours each to cover two outcomes is not the same, and it isn’t likely to compress the natural timeline. Instead, trying to go faster than your dream client works against you, often subtracting from trust, and causing others to try to slow things down.Pushing Reveals a Self-Orientation: When you push people to push deals because you need the deal, the contacts you are working with can feel the shift in your attention. Because you want—or need—what you want now, your contacts can feel the shift in your intentions. Your language might also betray you, signaling that signing before the end of the year is more important to you than the outcomes you are working towards for your dream client. When you push, the person you are pushing can push back. If what you were doing was for your client’s benefit, it would feel different to them and would move things more quickly.Attention Shift: In the last month of the year, and especially during that last couple weeks, not much work gets done. People have already shifted their thinking to the following year, with little time left to do anything meaningful in the current year. If you initiative doesn’t have traction going into the year, you are likely to have the opportunity stalled until the third or fourth week of January. The shift of attention doesn’t serve you if your opportunity hasn’t matured and if you haven’t gained the commitments you need to be close enough to sign a contract.If moving the deal forward in time and agreeing to move forward benefits your client, making the case to do something to create value for them, then the best thing you can do is explain the benefit to your dream clients and ask them to accelerate the conversations to ensure they receive the benefit of moving forward. As difficult as this might be, it’s still more likely to help you than bad salesmanship.last_img read more

On this day in 2016: Amit Mishra spins India to series victory over New Zealand

first_imgIndia and New Zealand recently played out the 100th ODI between the two nations with the hosts registering a comfortable 6-wicket win in the second ODI at Pune.The two teams will face each other in the series deciding third and final ODI on Sunday at the Green Park stadium in Kanpur.Interestingly, the two teams had played out yet another series decider exactly a year ago with the Men in Blue emerging victorious in that match.Last year’s five-match ODI series in India was tied at 2-2 when the two teams reached Vizag to play out the decider.Virat Kohli had won the toss and elected to bat first, a decision made easier by the pitch which seemed like a batsmen’s delight.Rohit Sharma top-scored for the hosts with a quickfire 70 off 65 balls while captain Kohli and MS Dhoni also made useful contributions of 65 and 41 respectively, as India posted 269/6 in 50 overs. India would have ideally liked to add 15-20 runs more but nonetheless the target was a challenging one.In reply, the New Zealand innings suffered a setback in the very first over when Yadav bowled opener Martin Guptill with a beautiful delivery that uprooted the off-stump.Bumrah accounted for the other Kiwi opener Tom Latham as an attempted flick through midwicket took the leading edge and found debutant Jayant Yadav at mid-on.Kane Williamson and Ross Taylor tried to stem the rot with a 35-run partnership. But the visitors ran into trouble when Williamson, Taylor and Bradley-John Watling departed in quick succession.advertisementAn Indian victory was only a matter of time from there. Leg-spinner Amit Mishra then took over and ripped apart the Kiwi batting lineup as New Zealand collapsed for a mere 79 and lost by a huge margin of 190 runs with Mishra returning figures of 5 for 18 in just six overs.This was the second five-wicket haul for Mishra, who took home the man of the match award. The leg-spinner was also adjudged the man of the series for a total haul of 15 wickets over the five ODIs.India thus won the five-match series 3-2. Among the other Indian bowlers, Axar Patel notched up figures of 2/9 in his 4.1 overs while Umesh Yadav, Jasprit Bumrah and debutant Jayant Yadav picked up a wicket each.The current three-match ODI series between India and New Zealand has been a riveting one till now.New Zealand stunned the hosts with a six-wicket win in the first ODI thanks to Latham and Taylor’s record 200-run partnership for the fourth wicket but the Men in Blue fought back hard and won the second ODI by six wickets with Shikhar Dhawan (68) and Dinesh Karthik (64*) starring with the bat.last_img read more

Suspect in Saskatchewan Amber Alert previously charged with abduction

first_imgPRINCE ALBERT, Sask. – The parents of an eight-year-old girl allegedly abducted from a Saskatchewan playground say their daughter is doing well.Her father said on social media police found her “safe and unhurt.”“I really want to say thank you to everyone who has offered help, prayers and support,” the girl’s mother wrote on Facebook. “Our sweetheart … is good.”An Amber Alert was issued Tuesday for the girl after she disappeared from a playground in Prince Albert, Sask. Police said the girl was playing by herself that afternoon in the city’s Crescent Acres neighbourhood when a man entered the park.He was seen hanging around for about 15 minutes, until the child left and he followed. Police said he was seen talking to the girl against a school wall, then grabbed her and put her into the back seat of his car. He then climbed into the front and drove away.The girl’s family went to the park, found she was missing and called police at about 3:30 p.m. The Amber Alert was issued at 7:53 p.m.A little over an hour after the alert was issued, police said the girl had been located but gave no other details.“She was taken to hospital for assessment when she was located. Other than that we can’t comment on her status,” said police spokeswoman Alanna Adamko.Adamko would not say whether any information from the public helped lead to the youngster’s recovery and the arrest.“I would say we were taken aback by the outpouring of public support. We had hundreds of thousands of hits on social media and hundreds of calls and messages from people wanting to provide assistance in any way possible. It was much appreciated.”A suspect in the abduction, Jared John Charles, 19, of St. Louis, was taken into custody in Prince Albert around 11:15 p.m. Tuesday.On Wednesday night, Prince Albert police said he is being charged with abduction, kidnapping, abandoning a child, criminal negligence, forcible confinement, sexual assault, sexual interference and invitation to sexual touching.He was to make a court appearance Thursday morning at Prince Albert provincial court.Court documents show Charles, who is also identified as Jarrod Charles, was charged with abducting two boys early last fall in La Ronge, Sask. However, the charges were later stayed.Crown prosecutor Luke Coupal said there was no evidence that Charles intended to take the children from their parents.“That’s not what happened here,” Coupal said Wednesday.“Jarrod was friends with the boys. They regularly hung out and one of the boys contacted his parents and explained that he would like to continue hanging out with Jarrod and the parent said ‘No, come home’ and the child refused.”Charles and the boys were later found at his grandmother’s home in the community of St. Louis, about 275 kms south of La Ronge.“They were playing video games, eating pop and chips, so the boys were perfectly fine and were taken back to their parents,” said Coupal.Charles is currently on probation after pleading guilty to sexual interference.In December 2016, he was sentenced to three and a half months time served and three years probation for a case involving a nine-year-old girl.“You might think that three and a half months seems a little odd,” said Coupal.“We need to bear in mind that sexual interference spans a spectrum of everything from possibly a kiss that has a sexual nature right up to violent sexual assaults, and the judge has to determine where on that spectrum is the appropriate sentence based on the facts.”Coupal could not provide any further details.The teen was ordered to get sexual offender counselling, not to be alone with children under the age of 16, not to be in parks or pools unless he’s with an adult who is aware of his conviction and not to use social media to communicate with anyone under the age of 16.He was also told to register with the National Sexual Offender Registry.— By Jennifer Graham in Regina and Ken Trimble in Edmontonlast_img read more

Ontario seeks public feedback on allowing cannabis lounges as legalization looms

first_imgTORONTO – Ontario is considering allowing licensed cannabis consumption lounges in the province once recreational marijuana is legalized this summer, and is asking the public to weigh in on the idea.The proposal is being met with optimism by some cannabis activists and municipal politicians who say the provincial government’s approach on where legal weed can be consumed has been too restrictive so far.Under rules outlined in the fall, the province intends to sell marijuana in up to 150 stores run by the Liquor Control Board of Ontario to people 19 and older, with a ban on pot’s consumption in public spaces or workplaces.On Thursday, the province issued a request for public feedback on a slew of regulatory changes proposed to clarify where recreational and medical cannabis can be consumed. Among them is the possibility of permitting “licensed and regulated cannabis consumption lounges and venues” sometime after legalization in July.That’s exactly what Abi Roach, the owner of Hotbox Cafe, a private Toronto cannabis lounge open since 2003, said she’s been asking the province to do for six years.Roach appeared before a legislative committee examining the provincial government’s pot laws in November and at the time urged politicians to ease their rules around where the drug could be consumed. She said she wanted the government to shift from what she sees as building policy based on “90 years of prohibitionist mentality” to something that is “functional and realistic to the needs of the consumer.”Current rules that intend to restrict consumption of marijuana to private residences will push people who can’t use cannabis in their own homes to places where it would create a problem, like public parks or their cars, Roach argued.“In an urban setting you have to take into consideration your neighbours,” she said. “Maybe your neighbour has children. Maybe they’re not really into it. Maybe your neighbour has respiratory issues. There’s no real consideration there for your community.”Roach said private cannabis lounges like Hotbox, which is among seven such establishments in Toronto, see thousands of customers a month and check IDs to make sure all customers are over the age of 19. The lounges do not sell marijuana but may offer equipment for customers as they consume in a communal setting.Roach said a major part of the government move to legalize cannabis is to cut down on criminal activity. Including private businesses, like lounge owners, in that regulatory environment will help achieve that goal, she said.“People who are in the cannabis business do not want to be criminals,” she said. “Cannabis consumers don’t want to do business with criminals. In reality, we all want to be licensed.”Roach also said that the government should not attempt to open its own government-run cannabis lounges, like it intends to do with standalone pot shops.“Do you want to hang out at Kathleen Wynne’s lounge?” she asked. “There has to be a level of innovation in this industry. There has to be a level of privatization.”Toronto councillor Jim Karygiannis, who sits on the city’s licensing and standards committee, said the province should step in with clear regulations that would lead to better controls on where the lounges are established, ensure patrons are of legal age to consume cannabis and protect lounge employee safety.The province should also require lounges to have appropriate set-backs from school zones, he said.“A private lounge is a wonderful alternative as long as it’s legislated and regulated,” he said. “The municipality should have some form of … oversight. If they’re not regulated it will be the wild, wild west.”Andrew Rudyk, spokesman for Ontario Attorney General Yasir Naqvi, said the province is taking a cautious approach to the federal legalization of cannabis.“There are no immediate plans to make … these changes as we are just taking this opportunity to get early feedback on possible next steps after legalization,” he said in a statement. “We will continue to consult on the decisions still to come.”The province is accepting feedback on its proposals until March 5. Comments can be submitted through the Ontario Regulatory Registry website.last_img read more

Barbra Streisand Visits Washington To Advance Womens Heart Health Equity

first_imgBarbra Streisand, co-founder of the Women’s Heart Alliance, is in the nation’s capitol this week to raise awareness among senior members of Congress and federal officials about women’s heart health and cardiovascular disease (CVD), which kills more women each year in the U.S. than all cancers combined.Streisand delivered the prestigious Rall Lecture at the National Institutes of Health, where she spoke about the urgent need for sex-specific research and health equity for women to reduce preventable deaths from heart disease. In the afternoon, she met with a group of senators to discuss the critical role of raising awareness about women’s cardiovascular disease, which claims the lives of nearly 400,000 women each year.“For too long cardiovascular disease has been considered a man’s disease — not just from a patient perspective, but also in the way it’s approached in prevention, treatment and research. Yet a woman is dying of CVD roughly every 80 seconds,” Ms. Streisand says. “I urge our policymakers to ensure that women’s heart disease, the number one killer of women, is treated as a national priority. “The noted singer, actress, director and philanthropist co-founded the Women’s Heart Alliance in 2014. Through the organization, she has built on the work she embarked on with her founding of the Barbra Streisand Women’s Heart Center at Cedars-Sinai in Los Angeles in 2012.“The WHA has worked tirelessly to empower women to take their heart health into their own hands through education and awareness-raising,” says CEO British Robinson. “But there is still more work to do. We want to change research practices to ensure women are represented in the lab and the clinic; ensure that women receive quality care, and that every health care provider knows how to provide it; and increase the odds that women will survive a heart attack or stroke.”The Women’s Heart Alliance (WHA) was formed to raise awareness, encourage action and drive new research to fight women’s heart disease. It is a unique collaboration between two of America’s leading medical institutions — the Barbra Streisand Women’s Heart Center at Cedars-Sinai Heart Institute and the Ronald O. Perelman Heart Institute at NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital/Weill Cornell Medical Center — and two major philanthropists and leaders in business and entertainment, Barbra Streisand and Ronald O.

Fez- Morocco is taking the terrorist threat posed by terrorist groups linked to the Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant and Al Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb (AQMI) very seriously.The Moroccan press reported in its weekend issues that the coast of Casablanca, as well as Mohammedia have been witnessing an unusual activity of the Moroccan Royal Navy.According to the Moroccan daily Al Massae, the Moroccan army deployed in the coast of Casablanca anti-aircraft missiles, as well as automatic weapons to prevent any potential attack from terrorist groups. According to the same source, the Moroccan authorities gave strict instruction to air traffic control authorities to report any aircraft trying to enter the Moroccan airspace without obtaining an authorization from the competent authorities, as a result of the warnings that came from Western capitals regarding the intention of some terrorist organizations in North Africa to carry out attacks on vital installations in the countries of the Maghreb. read more

Brock students alumni place third at Masters of Code hackathon

Goodman BBA student Johnathan Holland is no stranger to delivering a solid business pitch.Holland, who previously won the Brock Innovation Group’s Monster Pitch competition and won first place at JDC Central in the finance category, has gotten used to selling business recommendations with impact in high-pressure situations.Two years ago, Holland was the first recipient of the Deborah E. Rosati Co-op Entrepreneurship Scholarship which allowed him to spend two co-op work terms on his start-up company, where he has been working on his idea to build an online marketplace for convenient and non-traditional methods of currency exchange.As an entrepreneur, he understands the need to actively seek opportunities that will put his business skills and acumen to the test and develop them further.He recently got this chance when he traveled to Montreal with a team of Brock computer science students and alumni to participate in MasterCard’s Masters of Code hackathon.The team, comprised of Holland, Brock computer science students Matt Peskett and Peter Wilson and computer science alumni Ryan Spring and Karim Hamasni, placed third in the hackathon.The team had several combined years’ experience with developing code, and with Holland’s penchant for selling business ideas, they built and pitched a fully-functioning product that would help popular Instagram users monetize their accounts following a commission-based sales model through MasterCard’s Simplify payment API. The team had only 24 hours to accomplish this mission but they managed to overcome the tight deadline and impress the judges.For Holland, this is exactly the type of opportunity that student entrepreneurs need to pursue.“As a student entrepreneur, I need to constantly find opportunities to put my skills to the test. I learned a lot from my computer science colleagues – there’s so much value in cross disciplinary collaborations.” read more

Mens gymnastics Ohio State to compete against Michigan at Saturday home meet

Credit: Courtesy of OSUThe Ohio State men’s gymnastics team will face Michigan in a co-ed dual meet on Saturday at 4 p.m. in St. John Arena. The Buckeyes will enter the competition with the third-best pommel horse score average in the country (68.000) and a 107-97 all-time lead against Michigan. OSU knocked off the Wolverines at a 2016 dual meet, the first time they had beaten Michigan in a head-to-head matchup since 2007.Ohio State men’s gymnastics is currently ranked sixth in the Collegiate Gymnastics Association Coaches Poll, while Michigan is ranked No. 10. With an outstanding record going for them, Buckeyes coach Rustam Sharipov said his team will undertake the competition with full confidence.“We’re not worried about the Team Up North coming to us,” he said. “It’s our home court and advantage, it’s in our walls and we’re going to have a good crowd … I’m looking forward to having a good fan base. We’re hoping to have close to 3,000 people.”While the rivalry between OSU and Michigan might be evident as the competition approaches, Saturday’s meet will be focusing on the team’s senior athletes.“It’s senior night, so most of the focus will be on five guys,” Sharipov said. “[This is] going to be the last weekend for them to compete at St. John arena. We’re talking about (redshirt senior) Jake Martin, (redshirt junior) Jake Dastrup, (senior) Logan Melander, (redshirt junior) Ryan Lemezis and (senior) Andrew Rickly.”To the seniors, Saturday’s meet will be more than a competition as they focus on doing their best while overlooking the rivalry against Michigan. “It will mean a lot. This is my fourth year here now and this is my last meet in St. john’s. The energy is always great in there, it’s always a good time,” Melander said. “There is a rivalry with the schools, but since gymnastics is such a small community we know a lot of the guys on the team and we’re pretty good friends with all the guys. Obviously that school rivalry is there, so we want to win and we want to beat Michigan, but we all know each other and it’s always a good time to go out and see some friends.” Saturday’s meet will be the last meet of the season held in St. John Arena. However, the team will participate in the Arnold Challenge in downtown Columbus on March 4. read more

Jermain Defoe not afraid to move to Serie A

first_imgBournemouth striker Jermain Defoe said he wouldn’t have been scared to move to Serie A when Juventus were interested in signing him in 2009.Defoe who was then at Portsmouth would eventually leave Fratton Park to return for a second spell at Tottenham, but not before the Italian giants had expressed their intent to sign him, according to Sky Sport.“When I left Tottenham and went to Portsmouth with Harry (Redknapp), I was there for a season and then Harry got the Tottenham job.“It was weird because I just knew it was going happen. It made sense because of the relationship I had with the club and the fans.“There was speculation and at one point I thought: ‘Yeah, this is going to happen’. Both clubs were speaking.

I knew it was close.“Then, I got a phone call from someone to say that Juventus were interested. Obviously, I wanted to go back to Tottenham but I thought maybe the Tottenham one was not going to happen.“Nothing really scares me.

Feds say state cant prosecute Allen AG Richards sees end

first_imgAlaska Attorney General Craig Richards. (Photo by Josh Edge/APRN)U.S. Attorney General Loretta Lynch has declined to let the state act as federal prosecutors to pursue former VECO owner Bill Allen.Lynch, in a letter to her state counterpart, says the Department of Justice spent two years investigating Allen for alleged child exploitation before it decided it couldn’t bring charges, due to the weakness of admissible evidence.Because the feds decided the case did not meet their standards for prosecution, Lynch said it would be inappropriate to let the state prosecute the same case on its behalf.“This is the end of bringing a case against Mr. Allen for violating the Mann Act by the state of Alaska,” said State Attorney General Craig Richards. He says it’s possible a future U.S. attorney general might see things differently, but he says the chances diminish over time.“And I also just think that the practical reality is that internally within the bureaucracy of Justice, they’ve made the decision not to pursue the case,” Richards said. “So I think it’s probably a long shot that a new attorney general would take a different point of view.”Allen was once a powerful figure in Alaska business and politics, and he was the key witness in the public corruption case against U.S. Sen. Ted Stevens. Defenders of the late senator have alleged Allen lied on the stand in Stevens’s trial to avoid going to prison for child exploitation.U.S. Sen. Dan Sullivan was disappointed with Lynch’s decision, but he says it clears up one thing:  “The lingering doubt that so many of Alaskans have had on whether or not there was any kind of Justice Department or FBI agreement to not prosecute Bill Allen in exchange for his testimony against Ted Stevens.”Lynch says there was no immunity agreement. Allen served time for bribing lawmakers and corruption-related crimes.Sullivan tried to bring an exploitation case against Allen in 2010, when he was state attorney general. Sullivan calls the evidence “ample” and he says it’s important to continue to try to prosecute Allen for his behavior with teens to show Alaskans that Allen doesn’t get off the hook because of who was.“This is somebody who had a lot of authority, a lot of power,” Sullivan said.State authorities concluded years ago that they lacked evidence to charge Allen with child sexual abuse under state law, which requires proving a victim’s age. They’ve been trying to get the U.S. Department of Justice to “cross-designate” them to act as federal prosecutors so they can charge Allen with sex trafficking under the Mann Act, where age doesn’t matter.Sullivan convinced Congress to change federal law to force the feds to grant such requests from states. The new law, though, says the DOJ can refuse the transfer of power if it would “undermine the administration of justice,” and Lynch cited that language in her denial of Alaska’s request.An attorney representing Allen has denied the former businessman knowingly had sex with an underage girl or transported girls for sexual purposes.last_img read more

Crackdown to continue as toll nears 100

Photo: PID photoHome minister Asaduzzaman Khan on Sunday hinted at continuation of the ongoing crackdown on ‘drug dealers’ until, as he said, the situation comes under control.He made the government position clear talking to newsmen after a meeting on the security arrangements ahead of Eid-ul-Fitr at the Secretariat, reports UNB.As many as 93 people were killed in ‘gunfights’ between the law enforcement and alleged drug peddlers across the country since beginning of the crackdown on 12 May.Asked whether leaders and activists of Awami League and its associate bodies involved in drug trade will be brought to book, the home minister said actions will be taken following the drug traders’ list as instructed by prime minister Sheikh Hasina to maintain a ‘zero-tolerance’ policy against drugs.”No one will be spared, no matter what party they belong to.”Without offering any details, the minister also said a member of parliament (MP) has already been ‘in custody’.About the deaths of drug peddlers in “crossfires”, Asaduzzaman said they are going for an all-out war against drugs and will try their best to avert such situations.Inspector general of police M Javed Patwary and other top police officials attended the meeting.The home minister said close-circuit television cameras (CCTVs) will be installed at all key locations where Eid prayers will be offered.Additionally, round-the-clock security is being provided to all markets and shopping complexes so that people can shop without fear and no counterfeit currencies can spread, he said.Asaduzzaman said 70 members of “Ogyan” parties (doping gangs) and 36 hijackers have so far been arrested by law enforcers since the beginning of Ramadan.The law enforcers will also remain vigil so that no vehicle and vessel can carry excessive passengers, he said.As Bangladesh Garment Manufacturers and Exporters Association (BGMEA) president Siddiqur Rahman was also present at the meeting, the home minister urged all the RMG owners to pay Eid bonus to their workers by 14 June.To ease traffic jam, he also asked them to shut down their factories gradually between 12 and 15 June.In reply, Siddiqur said although it will be impossible to maintain a deadline, the salaries and bonuses will be paid before Eid.last_img read more
