Related Posts Tags:#start#startups chris cameron Social media maven and “average Joe” wine connoisseur Gary Vaynerchuk is the author of “Crush It!: Why NOW Is the Time to Cash In on Your Passion“, a step-by-step how-to guide for taking advantage of the Internet and social networking to create a powerful and influential personal brand. While any web savvy entrepreneur knows the importance of social media, this book is great for those looking for a crash course and an insider’s view into what it takes to create a thriving business from a personal passion. Vaynerchuk turned his father’s discount liquor store into Wine Library, a multi-million dollar online wine store, thanks in no small part to the popular Wine Library TV video podcast, just one of the various social media tools he outlines in his book. Fans of Vaynerchuk’s podcast will feel his enthusiastic and energetically friendly personality they know and love emanating from the pages of this no-frills, straightforward, slap-in-the-face social media wake-up call.“Everyone knows the Internet represents one of the biggest cultural shifts since the printing press,” Vaynerchuk says. “But I think society has been slow to recognize that it represents the biggest shift in history in how we do business.”From discovering your true passion, to setting up a WordPress blog, or from creating a Facebook Fan Page and to engaging with your audience on Twitter, Vaynerchuk covers all of his bases for social media. Most importantly, Vaynerchuk keeps it honest, managing to dispense his advice without coming across like a used car salesman or a cheap, “you can do it!” self-help author. “Crush It!” is an intriguing inside look at Vaynerchuk’s practices and a quick entertaining read at just 160 dense pages. The audio version comes in at just over 3 hours and 40 minutes and is narrated by the author with his usual “pumped up” enthusiasm. The audiobook may be a better choice not just because Vaynerchuk reads it himself, but in the true nature of openness and transparency, he veers off his script dozens of times to add insightful asides and updates to the written text. It wouldn’t be surprising if Vaynerchuk read the book straight through in one take.Photo by Flickr user Adam Tinworth.

By Jay Morse & Heidi Radunovich, PhDCreative Commons [Flickr, The Break-up, February 15, 2014]Is there a clear link between PTSD and relationship problems? Dr. Casey Taft, Principal Investigator at the National Center for PTSD, and colleagues reviewed the research findings related to PTSD and relationship problems .A total of 31 articles published between 1984 and 2009 were analyzed using meta-analysis. The primary research objective was to document the association between PTSD and 3 relationship factors including:Intimate relationship discord,Intimate partner physical aggression perpetration, andIntimate partner psychological aggression perpetration.Dr. Taft and his colleagues found that PTSD was related to all three of the above listed relationship factors. Some additional findings included:The military sample showed a stronger relationship between PTSD and relationship discord or physical aggression than the civilian sample.In cases of severe violence, there were greater associations between PTSD and relationship problems.The linkage between PTSD and relationship problems suggests that clinicians should consider relationship-based approaches to treatment for those military members that exhibit symptoms of PTSD. Not only can PTSD lead to relationship problems, the presence of relationship discord and aggression can lead to worsening of PTSD symptoms.For more information on PTSD and intimate partner relationship problems, consider attending the MFLN webinar series. Dr. Taft, Principal Investigator at the National Center for PTSD, will be presenting a webinar on the links between PTSD and Domestic Violence in Military Couples on May 28.References Taft, C.T., Watkins, L.E., Stafford, J., Street, A.E., & Monson, C.

Three days after the killing of a woman government official, who was shot dead while she was supervising demolition drive of unauthorised constructions near Kasauli, a joint team of Himachal Pradesh and Delhi Police on Thursday arrested the accused – Vijay Singh – from Vrindavan town of Mathura in Uttar Pradesh.“It was a joint effort of Himachal Pradesh Police and Delhi Police special teams. Though he kept changing locations, we kept tracking him and nabbed him. He even stayed near the Mathura refinery and the Banke Bihari temple,” said Mohit Chawla, Superintendent of Police, Solan.Mr. Chawla said that the accused was hiding in disguise at the time of arrest. “He is being brought back to the state by the police team and will be produced before the court,” he added.Himachal Pradesh Police had come severe criticism from several quarters after the accused managed to escape in broad daylight after open firing on the victim. The Congress party criticised the BJP government in the state over the incident. Last Tuesday, assistant town and country planner Shail Bala was heading one of the four teams that were constituted to demolish illegal constructions. While she was supervising the sealing process at the Narayani Guest House on the Dharampur-Kasauli road, the guest house owner’s son Vijay Singh, after an altercation, opened fire, killing Shail Bala and critically injuring Gulab Singh, an employee of the Public Works Department.Himachal Pradesh government has ordered a magisterial probe into the incident. The inquiry, which has been ordered by Chief Minister Jai Ram Thakur, would be headed by the divisional commissioner of Shimla and will submit its report in 15 days.

David Rudisha’s relentless ground-eating strides over 800m stopped the clock at 1:40.91 for the first world record in the track and field events at the London Olympics. The 23-year-old has kept the Kenyan tradition alive in an event where from start to finish he paced himself beautifully.Grace, poise and speed, Rudisha exhibited all these features in a race where the ability of a human to transcend the barriers was incredible.”I am very happy. This is the moment I have been waiting for a very long time. To come here and to break the world record is something unbelievable,” said Rudisha. Nijel Amos from Botswana won silver and another Kenyan, Timothy Kitum won bronze.Rudisha said he was well prepared, “I had no doubt about winning. The weather was beautiful and I decided just to go for it.” However, the newest world record holder in 800m says he can clip even a few more seconds. “After running two rounds before the final I got a little bit tired. I told the physio yesterday that I was feeling sore after the semis, so if I can get fresh then I can still improve on that,” he said. Rudisha hit the front of the pack in just before the 200m mark and was in pole position at the bell in 49.28.It wasn’t as fast as the 48.20 lap he clocked enroute to his previous record, 1:41.01, set in the Italian town Rieti two years ago, but the 2011 world champion continued to push hard over the next 200m.advertisementRudisha hit the 600m point in 1:14.30, compared to his split of 1:14.59 in Rieti before crossing the line in 1:40.91.Rudisha followed in the footsteps of his father Daniel Rudisha, who won a silver medal as part of the Kenyan 4x400m relay team in Mexico City in 1968.Meanwhile, athletics experts are speculating if one day Usain Bolt will shift to the longer events and can beat Rudisha one day.”I think if I train I can take Rudisha over 400m. Anything up(above 400m) I don’t think I can take it. Over 400m I probably think I can take him, not now,” said Bolt.Rudisha paid tribute to Usain Bolt. “He is a great athlete, a great sprinter in the world over many years. His specialty is 100m and 200m and mine is 800m, but I do run 400m sometimes early in the season,” he said.”If we were just making fun one time we can meet in a 400m race and we could see who would win. It would be fun to watch,” says Rudisha.Lord Seb Coe says at the London Olympics, Rudisha has been “the most exciting athlete to watch.” There is no doubt with a huge following for athletics in Britain, each fan inside the Olympic Stadium is lapping up the thrilling action.Rudisha may not have the same number of followers as Usain Bolt but the huge number of Kenyans waiting to support him outside was a sight to see.
Twitter/Playoff Twitter/PlayoffTuesday night, the College Football Playoff committee unveiled its third set of rankings, which features no changes from 1-5, but a major shakeup after. Clemson, Alabama, Ohio State, Notre Dame and Iowa held serve, but a number of teams, including Oklahoma, made major moves.At this point, while there is still a great deal of football to be played, a few things are obvious. There are seven teams that are in complete control of their own destiny. What does that really mean? If these seven teams win out, they’re locks for the College Football Playoff – no question. These squads are either undefeated or are involved in virtual play-in games that will knock out other contenders.The two teams with the best playoff odds that don’t control their own destiny? That’d be Oklahoma, which, given its loss to Texas, would need a little help to get in with an 11-1 record, and Notre Dame, which won’t have the luxury of claiming a conference championship, should it also finish with an 11-1 mark. Oddly enough, there are many who believe that the last playoff spot could come down to the Sooners and the Irish.Here are the seven teams that control their own destiny.7 Teams: Clemson >>>Pages: Page 1 Page 2 Page 3 Page 4 Page 5 Page 6 Page 7 Page 8

The top 20 included some famous old names, and was essentially made up of the global carriers of the day. The list of carriers ranked 21-30 also contained some carriers still well-known today: Wan Hai, Crowley, Matson and PIL (ranked 30th) as well as carriers since notably merged with others such as Safmarine, UASC, Hamburg-Sud, Delmas and MISC.However, consolidation has greatly changed the situation and the top 20 now account for 90% of all capacity, while the top 10 account for a mighty 83%. The largest carrier (still Maersk) now accounts for 19.4%, but the carrier ranked 10th (Zim) for 1.8% and the 20th (Quanzhou Ansheng) just 0.3%.“This profile is the result of an era of major consolidation, which looks like it might take a breather as and when the merger of OOCL with China COSCO Shipping is completed,” Clarksons said.“The scope of the liner companies’ cost base and the perceived benefits from economies of scale have led to a slimming of the number of major operators long considered inevitable by many.”A heavyweight top 10 carriers operates 10.4 times the capacity of the carriers ranked 11-20, compared to 2.4 times 20 years ago.
