But companies that understand what it means to be a Storybrand take another approach. They focus on their customer’s journey, the story that is happening in the lives of those they serve. They do so in an effort to not only connect with their customers on a personal level but also to express that they understand them and care about the challenges they face in life. It’s at that point that they have become empathetic in their customer’s eyes, and as a result become a brand the customer is eager to follow.

Lukas Podolski critical of ‘stupid’ expanded Euro 2016 format

first_imgGermany forward Lukas Podolski has criticised the new 24-team format for the European Championship, labelling it ‘stupid’ as it created a great deal of confusion among the players.European soccer’s governing body UEFA have added eight places to the finals tournament since it was last hosted in 2012, when only the top-two sides from the four groups advanced straight into the quarter-finals.The expansion means four of the best third-placed teams joined the top-two from each of the six groups in the Round of 16 and Podolski believes sides have been forced to wait too long to discover who their opponents were in the knockouts stages.’STUPID SYSTEM'”The group stage was a little bit strange, because UEFA did some stupid things with the system. It’s not about the smaller teams, it’s about the decisions. Some teams waited three days in the camp for a decision,” Podolski told reporters in France.”You lose the first two games and you still have a chance to get through to the next round. So it is a bit confused but for us, it doesn’t matter.”World champions Germany, who cruised past Slovakia 3-0 on Sunday, face Italy in a mouth-watering quarter-final showdown in Bordeaux on Saturday.last_img read more

Oklahoma State Football Valued at $209 Million

first_imgPhoto Attribution: US PresswirePhoto Attribution: US PresswireThe Wall Street Journal published a report on Monday valuing Oklahoma State’s football program (not athletic department, but football program) at $209 million.$209 million!For Oklahoma State football!That’s a higher value than USC ($197 million), Florida State ($159 million), and Stanford ($148 million).Here’s the full list… Screen shot 2013-01-07 at 12.11.59 PMHere are the factors that went into the valuation:Revenues and expensesCash-flow adjustmentsRisk assessmentsGrowth projectionsAccording to the article:The resulting figures represent what the teams might fetch if they could be bought and sold like pro franchises. As a point of reference, the NFL’s Jacksonville Jaguars sold in late 2011 for about $760 million.I know a lot of you guys (and girls) are in corporate jobs so I thought you might find this interesting.Frankly, I’m shocked OSU is valued higher than Southern Cal and lower than Texas Tech. I don’t know which factor we could have scored higher than SC in other than potentially growth projection[1. For “growth projection” I imagine whoever made this list just screenshotted a picture of Boone’s face next to the cell under Oklahoma State.].Oklahoma State was valued at $207 million this time last year (25th in the country). This is interesting to me because, even though I don’t have football-specific numbers, OSU’s overall revenue generated has dropped over the last few years after peaking at $106 million (!) in 2010.The funniest part about all of this[2. Unless you play college sports and have no money.] is that we continue to operate these things under the guise of “amateurism.”If you’re looking for the comments section, it has moved to our forum, The Chamber.

India: Ministry to Assist Ports in Combating Oil Spills

Print  Close zoom New central schemes to support State Maritime Boards and the State Governments to combat oil spills, are nearing finalization. Stating this at the 15th Meeting of the Maritime State Development Council at Bengaluru recently, the Union Minister of Shipping Shri G.K. Vasan said that the Ministry will soon issue guidelines to streamline the process of collection of Oil Cess which can be then used to assist ports to equip themselves for pollution mitigation.He said, steps are also being taken to delegate powers to State Authorities for registration, survey and certification of fishing vessels. He said, the notification to delegate powers to State Maritime Boards to receive wrecks have been prepared and it will be issued soon. Assistance is also proposed to be provided in respect of capital dredging projects, the minister added.Shri Vasan said that a recent important development is that the River sea vessels Rules have been amended to allow seamless movement of coastal vessels and powers have been delegated to the State Governments. The Director General of Lighthouses and Lightships has formulated a scheme to install VTMS in state-owned Non-Major Ports which handle substantial cargo. These two developments, he said are expected to boost Coastal trade and Coastal Shipping in the country.The efforts of the Government to establish two new Major Ports – one at Sagar Island in West Bengal and the other at Dugarajpatnam in Andhra Pradesh are progressing well. In respect of establishment of Major Ports in other states, Shri Vasan said that a technical committee of the Ministry had studied the proposed locations in Kerala and Karnataka that is Azhikkal and Tadadi respectively and submitted its report to the State Governments for their consideration.He said that he is happy to share with the nation that a landmark project to move three million tons of coal through Inland Waterways from Haldia to Farakka for NTPC thermal power plants is being implemented and trial runs are on. Another important development is that as a result of the persuasive efforts of the Ministry of Shipping capital dredging has been notified by the Department of Economic Affairs as an infrastructure subsector thus making capital dredging activities eligible for all the associated benefits, the minister added.The Central Government has recently formed a Project Monitoring Group headed by an Additional Secretary which is monitoring implementation of all mega projects including those in the Port sector. Many non-Major Port projects which are facing bottlenecks are being pursued by this PMG in consultation with the Ministries and State Governments concerned. There are presently 13 such projects for which Ministry of Shipping is the sponsoring Ministry and all steps are being taken to ensure expeditious implementation of these projects, the minister said. 此页面无法正确加载 Google 地图。您是否拥有此网站?确定 My location Government of India, November 18, 2013 read more

X As News 88.7 reported last month, oil and gas drillers showed a modest interest in growing their projects in the nation’s largest-ever Gulf of Mexico lease sale. It came amid the Trump administration’s push to expand drilling in federal waters.
