Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting Related Posts Tags:#start 8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Market A Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai… Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… For the fortunate startups selected to present at any of several large tech conferences this summer and fall, the experience is fraught with excitement, opportunity, and pitfalls in equal measure.Here’s a round up of words from the wise, including veteran investor Mark Suster on surviving the hype cycle, analyst Sean Power on navigating traffic spikes, entrepreneur Jason Calacanis on how to demo, and our thoughts on the benefits and drawbacks of launching a company or product at a conference.The AnalystFirst of all, be prepared for a high tide of website visitors. “This is an unprecedented influx of attention,” writes Power in a recent blog post. “It may be the single biggest traffic spike you’ll ever experience. Thousands of visitors will drive by your site, stay for a minute, and leave – never to return. After the bump, you’ll feel a tremendous rush of adrenaline, then deep, soul-sucking disillusionment as your traffic dwindles back to its former levels.”So, how to capitalize on the opportunity and make sure those visitors return? Gather lots of data, track and measure users’ behavior down to the twitch of a mouse, solicit user feedback, and – most importantly – make sure your servers can handle the traffic.The EntrepreneurWe also saw a string of blog posts from Calacanis on how to demo, how to run a trade show booth, and other handy conference tips. “After doing 2,500 minutes of demos (40 hours) this year and many more last year… I’ve learned a lot about what makes for a great demo and what makes for a horrible demo,” he wrote in this post. “Since demoing your idea is a key to your success as an entrepreneur, I thought I would share everything I know in a few simple bullet points.”Simply put, Calacanis advises startups to show the product quickly, get the presentation over with in 5 minutes or less, leave audiences wanting more, talk about accomplishments rather than roadmaps, understand the competition, give short answers, and never-but-never use PowerPoint. In part two of his tutorial, he gets into greater detail, such as handling technical issues and choosing the best method for “the setup,” or the first 30 seconds of a presentation.See that? That’s a tech startup conference spotlight, and it’s coming right at you. Image courtesy of Twiistup founder Mike Macadaan.The JournalistAs far as media coverage is concerned, launching during a major tech event can be dicey business. Written last year, these words from former RWW blogger Josh Catone still ring true: “Out of necessity, many of the reviews we wrote of the startups launching at those events were half-assed – we were more concerned with covering as much as possible as we were with writing quality critiques of the startups launching. And that wasn’t really our fault: There were just too many startups coming down the pipeline at once.”He continued to note that search traffic and Techmeme placement for two specific conferences were on a downward trend, and concluded, “Neither seem like they’ll be any better at acquiring users than any other time you could pick to launch (and might be worse, given the increased levels of startup noise during the events).”On the not-so-off chance that your startup does not become the buzzed-up darling of this year’s tech conference, you must inevitably resort to getting press the old-fashioned way: by emailing your friendly tech blogger/reporter types.The InvestorFinally, we come to this insightful post from Suster. “Today I want to talk about Kool Aid. Yours. Don’t drink it. I know you’re thinking that you have your head on straight but I promise you the experience of finding yourself in this maelstrom will leave any first time entrepreneur spinning. Fame and adoration corrupts first timers. And if you’re not careful you might start to believe your own hype.”Suster continues to spin his own tale from the trenches when he launched his first company. The story is replete with funding from Goldman Sachs, press from Time and the Wall Street Journal, and champagne with Bernard Arnault. The trouble was, Suster had sipped his own Kool-Aid. The company had raised too much money, hired too many people, had too many air-castle-construction discussions, and wasted time while reading their own press. His expert advice makes the post worth reading for any startup about to get major attention from press and investors.And of course, to all those startups about to demo, we salute you. jolie odell
The police have registered a case against the driver of a private jeep for allegedly raping a 15-year-old girl at Mokhada town in Maharashtra’s Palghar district, the district police said on Friday. The incident took place on October 19, when the victim, a resident of Kurudpada, Jawhar, was travelling in a private jeep, commonly used by locals in the area, the official said. Instead of stopping the vehicle at Kurudpada, the driver Dileep Bhore allegedly dropped the other passengers in the vehicle first, and then stopped the jeep at an isolated road, he added. The accused then allegedly forced the victim out of the vehicle, took her to a field nearby and raped her, he said. The traumatised victim filed a complaint on Thursday, the official said. A case under relevant sections of the Indian Penal Code and the Protection of Children from Sexual Offences Act has been registered against the alleged accused, police PRO Hemant Katkar said, adding that no arrest has been made so far.

About the authorFreddie TaylorShare the loveHave your say Robertson hails Liverpool teammate Lallana: A top, top professionalby Freddie Taylor3 days agoSend to a friendShare the loveLiverpool left back Andy Roberston was full of praise for midfielder Adam Lallana.The Englishman has not received too many chances to shine in the team this season.But when he came on for the Reds against Manchester United, he scored the Reds’ equaliser, which got them a point in a tight contest at Old Trafford.Speaking about Lallana after the game, Robertson told Liverpoolfc.com: “Amazing, because he struggled with injuries, he has come back and got injured again and stuff like that, so he has struggled.”Adam feels it as well because you can see when he is injured. Nobody likes it when you are injured, but he managed to pick himself up, he is now fit and he has been unbelievable this season in training. He has been giving 100 per cent.”In the changing rooms before games he is one of the loudest. He could easily be quiet as he is on the bench and not playing. But the way he has conducted himself – and, to be fair, [along with] all of the lads who haven’t played as much as they would have wanted – Adam is a top, top professional and a top, top guy.”I’m absolutely delighted for him that he could get on the end of it. “When he came on I thought he was brilliant and I thought he changed the game. To get that goal, it will do a world of good for him and his confidence and I think we’ll see a lot more from him.”
Prime Minister Andrew Holness says the Government will establish the National Security Council (NSC) in law.Speaking in Parliament yesterday (June 28) during the debate on the Law Reform (Zones of Special Operations) (Special Security and Community Development Measures) Act 2017, Mr Holness said the architecture is being put in place to ensure that Jamaica has a modern response to its national security.“We will be bringing to Parliament a law to establish it (the NSC). There is a consideration to have a member of the Opposition to be in attendance. I am hoping that will become a permanent part of the national security architecture,” said Mr Holness.The NSC is chaired by Prime Minister Holness who is also Minister of Defence. It includes the heads of the security forces along with the Ministers of National Security, Justice, Finance and Foreign Affairs and the National Security Advisor. It has been in operation since 1977.Prime Minister Holness assured that the NSC does not remove the separation of operation and policy from existing bodies in government. He says the NSC will hold the police accountable for how they use their powers of operation.“The police, the military and MOCA will have their operational duties. The job of the Government is to create the legal framework in which they [the security forces] can operate and hold them accountable. So we are evolving into a better model of ensuring that the people of Jamaica are better served in terms of their safety and security,” said Prime Minister Holness.In the meantime, the Prime Minister hailed the ‘Special Zones’ Bill as a wise decision to tackle crime.He says the Bill makes it clear that crime must exist in the area being declared a special zone and therefore there is no issue of political selection of areas.“The Bills says you must select areas where it is evident that there is a crime problem. So we can’t go into any area and declare it a zone, and in operations terms, we would not have the resources to willy-nilly declare areas zones. We would have to be selective and go into areas where resources bring an impact. It is evidential. It is not left up to the Prime Minister’s whims and fancies. In the law there are parameters. More than that, it is the Prime Minister acting on the advice of not only Cabinet but also the National Security Council,” added Mr Holness.The Bill has safeguards to ensure the protection of citizens and to ensure the joint police – military command is held accountable.Prime Minister Holness said the joint command is required to report to the NSC every ten (10) days during the designation of the special operation. Support from social intervention agencies will also be part of the operation.Parliament yesterday unanimously approved the Bill.The Bill will be tabled in the Senate on Friday and debated next week.
