Small Business Workshop

first_imgUniversity of Georgia Cooperative Extension and Fort Valley State University (FVSU) will host the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) Small Business Innovation Research Workshop on Tuesday, June 19, from 9:30 a.m. until 2 p.m. at FVSU in Fort Valley, Georgia.The workshop will introduce small business owners and entrepreneurs to significant funding opportunities available from the USDA Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) program.The SBIR program offers small business owners the chance to receive federal funding to research and explore new product ideas. Representatives from the Small Business Development Center — a UGA public service and outreach unit — UGA Extension, FVSU and the Georgia Institute of Technology will be on hand to discuss these grants and explain SBIR, grant eligibility and application requirements.“To attend the workshop, all they have to be is curious. If they’re a small business owner or entrepreneur who feels like they’ve got an innovative idea for a great business, we invite them to attend this workshop,” said Andrea Scarrow, UGA Extension Family and Consumer Sciences program development coordinator for the Southwest District.The workshop is free, but those interested in attending should contact Jolain Luke at 229-386-3812 or register online at www.bit.ly/FVSUusdaSIBR.Grant proposals will be accepted for topics related to:Forests and related resourcesPlant production and protection biologyAnimal production and protectionAir, water and soilsFood science and nutritionRural developmentAquacultureBiofuels and biobased productsSmall and midsized farmsPlant production and protection engineeringScarrow partnered with Joy Moten-Thomas, FVSU assistant administrator for community development and outreach, to plan and present the workshop.“There are very few grant opportunities that are available directly to Georgia’s business owners operating in the agricultural sector. We, as an Extension program, see the value of making sure that our businesses that serve as the backbone of our economy have knowledge of this program and have an opportunity to compete for this funding,” Moten-Thomas said.The SBIR program offers grants up to $100,000 in phase one, which covers eight months and supports concept development. Companies can then move to phase two and apply for grants up to $600,000, which covers 24 months and allows small businesses to scale up their ideas and approach commercialization.last_img read more

first_imgNicolas Pepe has started Arsenal’s last two matches on the substitutes’ bench (Picture: Getty)Mikel Arteta insists he understands the reasons behind the underwhelming start Nicolas Pepe has made to his Arsenal career but believes the club’s record signing will feature in his plans, as long as he shows the correct attitude.Arsenal agreed a £72million fee with Lille in the summer for the Ivory Coast international, but the winger struggled to cement a regular place in the team under Unai Emery.Pepe appeared to have kick-started his Premier League career with his first goal from open play in the recent 3-1 win over West Ham, but has started Arsenal’s two most recent matches, against Everton and Bournemouth, on the bench.AdvertisementAdvertisementArteta introduced Pepe with just eight minutes remaining on Boxing day at the Vitality Stadium as Arsenal came from behind to claim a point following a 1-1 draw.ADVERTISEMENTThe 37-year-old claimed he was encouraged by Pepe’s brief cameo but warned he must show focus and determination in training if he is to force his way back into the starting XI.

Manus Kelly to steer into politics as FF go for three-pronged Letterkenny strategy

first_imgMotorsport ace and businessman Manus Kelly will be added to the Fianna Fáil ticket for this year’s local elections.The Glenswilly native will be included as FF launch a three-pronged attack for the new Letterkenny area.Last night at a Fianna Fáil party convention at the Clanree Hotel in Letterkenny, sitting Councillor Ciaran Brogan and former schoolteacher Donal Coyle were ratified as candidates. Following the withdrawal of Councillor James Pat McDaid last week, the party hierarchy was keen for another name to be added to the mix.As the close of nominations had passed, Kelly – who emerged as a late contender – could not be ratified at the Convention, Fianna Fáil HQ will this week give the three-time Donegal International Rally winner the green light.Like McDaid, who is stepping out of politics due to increased work commitments, Kelly is Glenswilly-based and his addition to the race throws a new light on the battle in the new area.Coyle was the principal teacher at St Bridget’s National School in Convoy and is the current Chairman of Bonagee United Football Club. Donal Coyle.Coyle was an Independent Fianna Fáil candidate in the former Letterkenny Town Council elections and has been the Chairman of the Letterkenny-Milford Fianna Fáil Comhairle Ceanntair.In the last local elections in 2014, McDaid polled 1,314 votes and was one of 15 new Councillors elected across Donegal.Sitting Independent Councillor Dessie Shiels – who polled 955 first preferences last time around – has opted out this time, meaning a lot of surplus votes are out there for candidates.Councillor Ciaran BroganSitting Sinn Féin Councillor Adrian Glackin will be confident of collecting a sizeable number of votes in his native Glenswilly, though the impending addition of Kelly will make things rather more interesting.Another Glenswilly man, Charlie McClafferty, is believed to have declined an approach from Fine Gael, but there is speculation he could go as an independent candidate. National Community Games President Gerry Davenport is being touted as a possible candidate for FG in Letterkenny, where Councillor Jimmy Kavanagh is already on the party ticket.The waters could become even more unclear should sitting Councillor Michael McBride declare in the Letterkenny area. McBride’s vote is evenly split between the Letterkenny-Milford areas and has something of a ‘stick or twist’ decision to make in relation to where he hangs his hat in the coming weeks.Letterkenny businessman Kevin Bradley, the owner of Highland Bakery, will be on the ballot paper as an independent, while Cathal McGlynn has already launched his campaign.Manus Kelly to steer into politics as FF go for three-pronged Letterkenny strategy was last modified: March 11th, 2019 by Chris McNultyShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:Adrian GlackinCathal McGlynnCharlie McClaffertyCiaran BroganCouncillor Ciaran BroganCouncillor Michael McBrideDessie ShielsDonal Coylefianna failJames Pat McDaidKevin BradleyletterkennyManus Kellylast_img read more

As the EBook Market Matures, Amazon Will Face Stiff Competition

first_imgWhy Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… According to a new report by Forrester Research’s Sarah Rotman Epps, eBooks and eReaders are slowly but surely becoming mainstream. However, while Amazon is the current market leader among early adopters of this technology, Rotman Epps predicts that later adopters will not feel the same loyalty towards Amazon. This, according to the report, will open up a lot of opportunities for other players in the market, including Sony and large mass-market retailers like Walmart.According to Forrester’s data, just about 1.5% of all US online consumers currently own an eReader – but it’s important to note that this number is up from 0.6% a year ago. Forrester estimates that about 3 million eReaders will be sold in the US in 2009. By 2013, this number will grow to 13 million. Now, more consumers than ever before are aware of the existence of eReaders (37%) and the number of survey respondents who intend to buy an eReader in the next six months has grown to 6% compared to 2% last year.Amazon currently has the lead among early eBook adopters. Once eBooks become mainstream, however, Rotman Epps argues, this lead could easily dissipate. While Rotman Epps doesn’t talk a lot about hardware devices in her report, the reality is that the Kindle isn’t exactly a major step forward in the history of industrial design. Early adopters and ‘tech optimists’ (as Forrester likes to call them) are willing to look beyond this, but in the mainstream market, hardware design might play a major role in consumers’ buying decisions.The Next Wave of eBook AdoptersAccording to Forrester, the next wave of eBook adopters tends to read more books per months than early adopters and will probably consist of younger males who are less likely to be married and have children. The problem for eReader manufacturers, however, will be to get this group to buy dedicated devices. Rotman Epps argues that a large percentage of this group will probably read eBooks on devices they already own (like the iPhone), unless prices for eReaders come down significantly (under $100). It’s All About the PriceForrester’s Rotman Epps argues that the high price of eReaders is currently holding back mainstream adoption. A $99 device, Rotman Epps notes, would bring a lot of additional readers to eBooks and eReaders. Most importantly, though, the eBook and eReader market is still in flux. As the next generation of readers is likely to be very different from the previous generation, Amazon will have to work hard to keep its current lead. Can Amazon Hold On to Its Lead?Unlike Rotman Epps, however, we think that Amazon will likely be able to hold on to its current lead. After all, it has already forged strong – though sometimes contentious – relationships with most publishers and it currently offers the best integration between its store and its eReader. Barnes & Noble’s new eBook store will be a strong contender here, though we have yet to see the Plastic Logic eReader device that B&N will use to compete with the Kindle. Sony, too, is making a major push in the eBook market again, though in terms of mindshare in the US, Amazon and the Kindle are currently the clear leaders (both in the mainstream and among early adopters).While “Later Adopters May Not Be As Loyal To Amazon.com” makes for a good subtitle, the next generation of eBook adopters is just as likely to consider Amazon as the natural place to go to for eBooks, especially given that the company is already the #1 online retailer for regular books.What About the B2B Market?The Forrester report only focuses on consumers. We would argue, however, that there is also a large professional market for eReaders, where the current price isn’t too big an issue. Just last week, for example, iRex, an eReader manufacturer that mostly aims for the B2B market, announced the launch of its electronic flight bag for pilots – which is basically an iRex eReader with Jeppesen’s charts loaded on them.What’s the Killer Product for eReaders?The Forrester report argues that once eReaders hit the $100 barrier, users will quickly start to adopt these devices. But is price really the only issue here? Are there any other “killer apps” or devices that could drive mainstream adoption even before $99 eReaders become a reality?Our own Dana Oshiro just argued in our backchannel that a subscription book club (maybe run by Oprah) could bring a lot of new users to eReaders. And then, of course, there is still the mystical Apple tablet that might make for a great eReader – among other things – and which will surely cost more than $99. Would You Buy an eReader?What is holding you back from buying an eReader? The iPhone? The price of the current generation of eReaders? Or the well-designed reading solution called ‘the book’?

6 Lies About Success

first_imgThere are many lies about success. It’s easy to believe these lies, and doing so will distort your perception of what real success is.It’s all about the money. Success isn’t all about the money, even though that is what some people believe success to be. It isn’t about money, even though that is how the media portrays success. There are plenty of people with money that aren’t successful when measured on any other scale. No one would call Mother Theresa or Gandhi failures, even though they wouldn’t fare well on this scale. It’s not money.It’s not about not having money. If success isn’t only about money, money is a scorecard of sorts. It is a reflection of the value that you create. Money provides you with security, experiences, and choices. Money also allows you to give back at a greater level. Not having any money doesn’t guarantee that you are successful, and there are plenty of people with no money who also aren’t successful on any other scale. It’s not about not having money.It’s about being popular. Some people with a measure of fame are perceived to be successful. And on that one measure, you might believe that they are successful. But fame is no indication of success either. Many of the people with names that are well-recognized are not successful when measured another way. It’s not fame.It’s about being beautiful on the outside. There are people who are beautiful on the outside that are hideous on the inside. Time destroys physical beauty. Time destroys one’s athletic prowess, too. But time can never destroy true success. It’s not physical beauty.It’s about being smart. Some of the smartest people you will ever meet will also be horrible to other human beings. They might have parchment, prizes, and awards for their intellectual prowess, but none of those prove success outside of a very, very narrow measurement. It’s not intellect.It’s about natural talent. Talent is no sign of success. Many of the most talented people never do anything with their talents, and many people with far less talent do more with what little they have. It’s not about having talent.The truth about success is that it is defined by each of us individually. My success is not the same as your success.My success is about living up to my potential, making the contribution I am here to make, and doing something meaningful with my life.Your success is about living up to your potential, making the contribution you are here to make, and doing something meaningful with your life.last_img read more
