All-rounders are always interesting in my opinion. Players like Glenn Maxwell, Marcus Stoinis, Mitchell Marsh, Jimmy Neesham, Colin de Grandhomme could all be big picks.”“Going into the auction you have to be very specific about the kind of players you need,” he said. “For instance, we’ve got three openers, so we don’t need to look for one. You need to identify the problem areas in your starting eleven, and essentially plug the gaps.”Ponting also spoke about the 2019 IPL season which was a stellar one for Delhi, with the franchise finishing third eventually in the competition. “The semi-final loss against Chennai was disappointing of course. But we played some great cricket, and even now, about 7-8 months after the tournament, I feel like there were times when we were the best team in the competition. I just remember how much fun everybody had. It was a totally different environment than most other IPLs that I have been a part of. The idea is to recreate that atmosphere and culture with our new and existing bunch of players.”On the addition of Ravichandran Ashwin and Ajinkya Rahane to the side, Ponting said, “They are the kind of players who are likely to do well on the Kotla wicket, and of course, bring tremendous experience with them.”Delhi Capitals will go into the December 19 auction in Kolkata with a purse of ₹27.85 crore and 11 available slots, including five overseas players.Also Read: IPL 2020 Auction 7 days to go: 332 to go under the hammer in Kolkata ICC WTC Final LIVE commentary: AIR, DD Sports to live stream & broadcast India vs New Zealand for free Cricket WTC Final 2021: India vs New Zealand Full Squad, Schedule, Live Streaming, Date, Time, Venue all you need to know World Test Championship final Cricket RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Cricket Cricket CricketIndian premier leagueIndian premier league 2020Latest Sports NewsMoneyballSports BusinessNewsSport WTC final LIVE broadcast: ICC’s mega broadcast plan, India vs New Zealand live streaming starts today in 195 countries Cricket ICC WTC Final: 10 years of Virat Kohli’s Test career, 10 best moments of India’s greatest Test skipper By Kunal Dhyani – December 14, 2019 Virat Kohli completes 10 years in Test Cricket: 10 things you should know about India skipper- check out Cricket Cricket LIVE Cricket Score IND vs NZ WTC Final: India VS New Zealand Live score, ball by ball coverage, Virat Kohli starts Day 3: Follow… PSL 2021 Playoffs: Schedule, Timing, LIVE streaming, list of champions; all you need to know Previous articleMPL rolls out unique video campaign with Virat KohliNext articleIPL 2020 Auction LIVE: What the franchisees will eye for!

This is the second album to be produced of the successful “Even Better” compilations. The album features various artists performing a cover of a popular charthit live on air.

The New Marketing Manifesto: The 12 Rules for Building Successful Brands in the 21st Century (Business Essentials)

first_img For decades marketing thought of itself as an objective and increasingly quantifiable science. It is ironic that just as it seemed to have won a place in the highest business councils of the land with its credo of putting the customer first, that everything should suddenly go horribly pear shaped. Somewhere between the launch of satellite television in the UK and the fall of Margaret Thatcher, all the certainties of consumer expectation, segmentation, behaviour and communication that underpinned the so-called “science” of marketing, seemed to evaporate. Since then marketers have been struggling in different ways to come to terms with splintering social structures, changing tastes and a fragmenting mediascape. Every week the marketing and business press reports some new wheeze or nostrum of the month as marketers attempted to develop a new vocabulary in a language they did not yet understand to deliver a message they were not yet sure of. Most prominent among them were leading-edge advertising agencies such as HHCL, Chiat Day and its subsequent incarnation in London, St Lukes. As planning director of St Lukes, John Grant can reasonably lay claim to be one of the creators of the new language of marketing. The significance of his book The New Marketing Manifesto, lies in the fact that for the first time it draws together all the different strands of modern practice in the creation and communication of brands, and provides a coherent intellectual framework or grammar for the new ideas. It also gives valuable insights into how one of the most creative and original advertising agencies in the world approaches its business. With great eloquence and insight Grant describes how the role of brands in society has changed over the past century, arriving at the startling conclusion that “brands are (now) surrogate traditions”. Because they are now so much more important to society, they demand much more careful consideration he says. Perhaps “The New Marketing Primer” would have been a better title. Compellingly written, perhaps even overloaded with supporting evidence, Grant outlines the syntax of the “new marketing” with 12 rules for building successful brands in the 21st Century. This is that rare creature; an important book about marketing. Aimed at marketing service providers, people in marketing departments and anyone who has to make marketing decisions, ie, anyone in business, it is informative, stimulating and inspiring by turns. If there is one book you buy about marketing this year, this should be it. —Alex Benady AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis The New Marketing Manifesto: The 12 Rules for Building Successful Brands in the 21st Century (Business Essentials) Howard Lake | 29 January 2008 | Newscenter_img  20 total views,  1 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur.

BBB: Deadline approaching for Western Union refund claims

first_img WhatsApp Twitter Local NewsBusiness Heather Massey is the Regional Director of the Better Business Bureau in the Permian Basin. Check out www.bbb.org or call 563-1880. Twitter BBB Scam TrackerThousands of Texas residents may be eligible for a refund following a federal investigation into Western Union, but the deadline to file is fast approaching. Consumers who lost money to a scammer by wiring money through Western Union between January 1, 2004 and January 19, 2017, can now file a claim to get their money back. According to the Texas Attorney General’s Office, 39,000 Texas residents may be eligible. The deadline to file the free claim is May 31, 2018.The refunds are a result of a joint investigation by the Federal Trade Commission (FTC), the Department of Justice (DOJ) and the U.S. Postal Inspection Service. Western Union agreed to pay a $586 million settlement, and the DOJ is using that money to provide refunds to victims.Once the claim is filed, the DOJ will check with the Treasury Offset Program to ensure that victims do not owe money to the federal government, which could reduce the refund amount. Consumers who sent multiple wire transfers can also file a different claim for each case. Other expenses like Western Union fees, losses or transfers sent through other businesses are not eligible for a refund.Better Business Bureau serving the Heart of Texas also wants to warn you of possible scams related to this refund. Con artists will send an official-looking email about the Western Union settlement and ask you for information about your transaction, along with your name and address. The thing to know is that you cannot apply for a refund by email. These emails are scams. Do not respond and do not give out any personal information.To file a claim, go to ftc.gov/wu. According to the FTC, it will take up to a year to process the claim and determine eligibility for repayment.Some of the types of scams that requested money to be transferred include:Romance Scams – A person you meet online expresses interest in you romantically. When you are serious with your new friend they ask for money to travel to see you, for medical services, or to help a family member.Advance Fee Loans – A loan is offered, but there is a fee that must be paid upfront prior to the issuing of the loan. The fee is for a processing fee or insurance.Lottery or Prize Scams – You are informed that you have won a prize or are a winner in a lottery. To collect your prize, you must pay taxes, shipping or other fees upfront.In each case, your money is gone without getting what you paid for. BBB reminds consumers to never send money to a stranger by an untraceable method such as wire transfer, cashier’s check, or a prepaid gift card or debit card. For more information on how to avoid these types of scams, go to BBB.org/avoidscams.Heather Massey is the Senior Regional Director for the Permian Basin office of Better Business Bureau serving the Heart of Texas.

World’s largest peanut boil has Cajun flavor

first_img Fege sure ain’t from around here. He’s a Louisiana product but he’s also a Shriner and that’s why he was in rural South Alabama bagging boiled peanuts in the hot, humid last days of August.“I like the roasted peanuts.” Fege said, pointing toward the roaster along a short wall of the Shriners’ Peanut Barn on the outskirts of Luverne. “We don’t eat boiled peanuts in Lafayette. Don’t ever see any. What we eat boiled are crabs and crayfish, but peanuts? No.“But, I’m not here to eat. I’m here to help out fellow Shriners because this is a good cause. I got to know the Shriners here through deer hunts that private schools in this area hold. I’ve been coming to the hunts for six years but this is my first year helping with the peanut boil.” Fege said boiling 25 tons of peanuts is hard, hot work with long, long hours.“I’ve been bagging peanuts all morning and I’ve still got a lot more to go,” he said. “But I’m proud to be helping.”Fege said his home Shrine Club sells Vidalia onions as a fundraiser.“We have to unload an 18-wheeler, stack the bags over in the shade and people come to buy,” he said, with a smile. “Boiling peanuts is a lot different. Roasting is easier and I like roasted peanuts better but people around here want boiled peanuts.” By Jaine Treadwell Plans underway for historic Pike County celebration Around the WebMd: Do This Immediately if You Have Diabetes (Watch)Blood Sugar BlasterIf You Have Ringing Ears Do This Immediately (Ends Tinnitus)Healthier LivingHave an Enlarged Prostate?

We put the peanuts in the freezer and then we’ll have them for football games. Things like that.”William Baker, past president of the Crenshaw County Shrine Club, said, too, that the boiled peanuts are good, now or later.“We get good, green peanuts and we’d like to think they are the best around,” he said. “We’ll boil 25 tons this week and that’s about what we usually do. We’ve got five vats going day and night. It takes three hours to cook-off the peanuts and each vat holds about 600 pounds so we’re busy all the time and folks are waiting in line most all the time.”The Shriners fired the first “pots” of peanuts on Wednesday night and they have boiled without ceasing since.Baker said, if the weather cooperates, the peanuts could all be sold before Labor Day.“Then, we could go home Monday and get some rest,” he said and added laughing, “if we’re still around Monday, we could tie up and fight. When you’ve been together that long and it’s been this hot, you might not be happy with each other.”The World’s Largest Peanut Boil is held at “the barn” at the intersection of Highway 331 and Highway 10.
