They discovered the doors of the plane ajar and suspected that survivors may have clambered out. A mother and her infant son who disappeared in a plane crash in the dense jungles of northwestern Colombia several days ago were found alive and well in what authorities called a “miracle.”Nelly Murillo, 18, and her son Yudier Moreno, not yet one year old, were near the site where the Cessna 303 crashed on Saturday in thick brush.“It’s a miracle. It is a very wild area and it was a catastrophic accident,” Colonel Hector Carrascal, commander of the Colombian Air Force in Antioquia department, told AFP on Wednesday.“His mother’s spirit must have given him strength to survive.”Baby Yudier Moreno was held by a rescuer on the flight back to Quibdo Murillo and her baby were taken by helicopter to a nearby hospital with minor injuries, said Carrascal, adding that he was stunned they were alive.“The lady has wounds and minor burns and apparently the child is unharmed,” the Colombian Air Force said in a statement.The plane’s pilot, Captain Carlos Mario Ceballos, died in the crash and rescuers found his body in the aircraft.They discovered the doors of the plane ajar and suspected that survivors may have clambered out.A 14-person search-and-rescue team scoured the dense forest for several days before finding the mother and child.The plane was traveling between Nuqui and Quibdo in northwest Colombia when it crashed.Investigators were looking at the cause.

13 May 2013Business leaders from across Africa called for investment in human capital and economic diversification to make growth across the continent more inclusive at the close of the World Economic Forum on Africa on Friday.“The era of pessimism is over in Africa,” said WEF managing director and member of the managing board, Borge Brende.“The African lions are growing even faster than the Asian tigers. But if this growth is not invested in human capital and diversifying economies, we will lose out on the opportunity.”Africa also needs to offer better enabling environments for industrialisation in order to capitalise on opportunities that the continent provides, according to CEO of research firm Frontier Advisory, Martyn Davies.“Beyond the lip service, there needs to be a deeper realisation that our most valuable asset is not what’s under the ground, but it’s what is potentially in our people,” Davies said.Greater regional integration and investment in social entrepreneurship and industry are also necessary for inclusive growth.“We need to have inclusive and high-value growth,” said consultant for Morocco’s Attijariwafa Bank. “It’s not only about GDP. We need to have competitiveness.”Regional integration within Africa and the continent’s integration with developed economies are also essential to its growth and development, Sweden’s Foreign Affairs Minister Carl Bildt said.WEF was hosted in Cape Town from Wednesday to Friday with over 1 000 participants from about 80 countries around the world.Under the theme “Delivering on Africa’s Promise”, the meeting’s agenda integrated three pillars: Accelerating Economic Diversification, Boosting Strategic Infrastructure and Unlocking Africa’s Talent.SAinfo reporter
As the solutions we sell become more and more complex, serving your prospective clients can require that you bring a subject matter expert into the mix. The subject matter expert (SME) has deep knowledge in some area around your solution, something domain specific, like information technology or risk management.The subject matter expert answers questions that are beyond the capabilities of the salesperson. In many cases, however, salespeople have become dependent on subject matter experts and in doing so have become irrelevant. They’ve absolved themselves of their responsibility to become the advisor part of “trusted advisor.”If you are in business-to-business sales and the sale is complex, strategic, and potentially full of risk, you must be a subject matter expert in your own right. If you are not, you are irrelevant.Do You Know as Much or More Than Me?It may not be necessary for you to have the same depth of knowledge or experience as a subject matter expert inside your company, but you can’t be too far off either. You can’t be a trusted advisor and a consultative salesperson and also an “know nothing.” You have to bring more value than simply knowing who to call to get questions answered.Your prospective client has questions. They expect that you have the depth of knowledge necessary to answer their questions. If you don’t know as much or more than your prospective client knows, it is difficult for you to create value for them.Your goal should be to know as much or more about the areas where you help your clients than any of your prospective clients—and far more than any of your competitors.Are You Relevant? Do You Have a Point of View?It’s also important that you know enough to be relevant. Relevance requires that you have a point of view. That you have ideas about what is right, what is wrong, what is possible, what is now, and what is next.The more senior the person you are working with, the more important it is that you have a point of view that creates value for them. It’s important that you have an arsenal of ideas and experiences that allow you to disrupt their current thinking and provide them with the new lens through which to see their future.Your goal should be to become the person that your clients and prospective clients call to help understand what they should be doing to drive their business forward and create greater results. What do you need to know to be able to deliver that level of value?Product knowledge is not enough by itself. You need to be world-class in your space if you are going to be relevant, credible, and irreplaceable. You are going to need to be a subject matter expert.
zoomIllustration. Image Courtesy: Finnlines Finnish RoRo and passenger services operator Finnlines, part of the Grimaldi Group, is designing and developing a new roll-on/roll-off passenger (RoPax) concept. The new class of ships, named Superstar, will be bigger than the company’s existing Star class which represents the largest ships in the Finnlines’ fleet, as disclosed by Emanuele Grimaldi, President and CEO of the group.In addition, the new vessels will meet the highest technical and environmental standards. The target of the planning is to create the most environmentally friendly ship design ever operated in the Baltic Sea. Automated berthing solutions for these vessels are also under investigation.In autumn 2018, Finnlines revealed plans to order the new series of RoPax ships. The ongoing concept development means that the company is now a step closer to building the vessels.Some USD 1.5 billion will be spent on new RoPaxes as well as other projects such as Grimaldi’s multipurpose ships, the group earlier said.Last year, Finnlines embarked on a EUR 200 million green roll-on/roll-off (RoRo) investment program by ordering three new green 5,800-lane-meter ships. Being built in China, they are scheduled for delivery in 2020 and 2021.With these investments, the company aims to contribute to reducing fuel consumption as well as CO2 and other emissions.“In order to survive in an industry facing public pressure on business operations to put the environment first, demands from customers for smarter business processes and, above all, vast regulations designed to reduce emissions, Finnlines has to constantly upgrade its fleet and make use of technological advances throughout the supply chain,” Grimaldi noted.“Saying this we have invested over EUR 1 billion during the past decade. And even more – we will continue to implement our strategy with determination and with consistency by investing over EUR 500 million more in the coming three to four years,” he continued.A strategy to increase efficiency of the capital employed on the Finnlines’ fleet and continue investing in sustainable development is paying off as 2018 was a successful year for the company, according to Grimaldi.The Finnlines’ January–December 2018 result increased by 15.1 percent to EUR 95.1 million in 2018 from EUR 82.6 million seen a year earlier.Revenue also rose by 9.9 percent to EUR 589.4 million in 2018 from EUR 536.3 million posted in 2017.
Justin Zwick Last week: 3-1 Overall: 6-1 Picks: Ohio State, Michigan State, Iowa Last week’s college football schedule was chock full of marquee matchups, from Ohio State-Miami to Oklahoma-Florida State to Michigan-Notre Dame to Alabama-Penn State. The height of competition was no challenge for James Laurinaitis, however, as the former Buckeye linebacker correctly predicted the winner for all four contests. Laurinaitis moved to within one game of leader Justin Zwick, who used a 3-1 week to push his first-place standing to 6-1 overall. Defending champion Quinn Pitcock, who celebrated his 27th birthday this week, is tied for second with Laurinaitis at 5-2.

Ohio State’s junior-forward Mason Jobst (26) steals the puck away from Notre Dame’s sophomore forward Mike O’Leary (19) during a Big Ten conference matchup at the Schottenstein Center on November 3, 2017 in Columbus, Ohio. OSU lost 1-4. Credit: Alex Hulvalchick | For the LanternThe No. 15 Ohio State men’s hockey team (6-3-3, 1-3-0-0 in Big Ten) will travel to Ann Arbor, Michigan, after an off week to face off against No. 17 Michigan (6-4-2, 2-2-2-1 in Big Ten) in a battle between one of the nation’s best offenses and the Buckeyes’ shutdown defense.The Wolverines are tied for third in the nation in scoring offense at 3.83 goals per game, which includes putting in 11 goals in a series against then-No. 4 Minnesota. That series ended in an 5-4 overtime win and a 6-6 shootout loss for Michigan. Minnesota ranks in the top 10 in scoring defense, allowing only 2.29 goals per game.The Buckeyes match the impressive offensive numbers with a scoring defense that is also tied for third in the country, allowing only two goals per game. Head coach Steve Rohlik said the success is more about his own team performing well than preparing specifically for the opponent.“It’s about our detail, it’s five-man defense five-man offense and that’s what we’ve been stressing all year,” Rohlik said. “It’s about how we play and what we do, we know how good they are, we know what they can do, and again it’s about us going out there and executing our game plan.”Senior forward Tony Calderone is Michigan’s most powerful scorer this season, netting 10 goals on just 44 shots, good for fifth in the NCAA. Michigan’s key playmaker all year has been sophomore forward Cooper Marody, who is fourth in the nation with 20 points, and tied for second with 16 assists.“They can beat you with a lot of different guys and certainly guys like [Calderone] have been putting points up on the board, again I think it’s just about our team defense, it’s not about one guy, it’s about our five guys on the ice,” Rohlik said.Michigan changed head coaches for the first time in 33 years this offseason with the retirement of former NHL player Red Berenson. Berenson led the Wolverines to 11 NCAA Final Fours and two national championships. He was replaced by Mel Pearson, who was Berenson’s assistant coach from 1987-2011.“As a young coach being able to stand there and look down at a legendary Hall-of-Famer in Red, it’s almost like every game you walk away going ‘that’s unbelievable,’” Rohlik said. “Certainly Red’s missed … but Mel’s doing a heck of a job up there.”The Ohio State-Michigan rivalry transcends every sport, and hockey is no exception. Most games within this matchup are filled with big hits and trash talking. In a game last season, the bad blood escalated into a massive fight after an 8-6 Michigan victory last season.Michigan has won 11 of the 18 matchups against Ohio State in the past five seasons, but the Buckeyes have won five of the past eight meetings against their rivals.“We don’t like those guys and we know that they don’t like us,” junior forward Dakota Joshua said. “I think it’s really cut throat and we really take those games to another level.”Joshua is one of five Ohio State players born in Michigan, and he said there is an added intensity to perform in his home state.“Switching over sides, coming down to Ohio State was a big deal, and going back to Michigan there’s always some extra pride, extra chip on your shoulder that you want to stick it to them and prove them wrong.”This weekend series is the first of two the teams will share this season. With both teams teetering on the edge of the USCHO rankings week after week, these games may mean more than ever when when determining which teams make the NCAA tournament at the end of the year.Puck drop is set at 6:30 p.m. Friday and at 7:30 p.m. Saturday at the Yost Ice Arena in Ann Arbor, Michigan. The Friday game will be shown live on Big Ten Network.
Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsAppProvidenciales, TCI, October 31, 2016 – “Only a few months ago during my Budget Address I told this country that the Rufus Ewing led Government has been marred with incompetence. It appears that once again Rufus Ewing and his Government have shown this country that he and his colleagues are not capable or fit to govern.”“The Governor in a Statement issued earlier has said that he will be postponing the date of Election due to the inability of election office officials not having the required preparation time stipulated under the Elections Ordinance and that this decision was made in consultation with the Premier. Whilst the Premier may make a request for the dissolution of the House of Assembly by virtue of section 57 of the Constitution and the date is set by the Governor under the powers given him under section 59 of the Constitution, it is precedent that the Governor entertain the Premier in agreeing the date for General Election.” “No doubt the Premier has had to admit his incompetence and his promise to announce a new date confirms that he had made a confession of same to the Governor. Another history making event for this outgoing Premier, and nothing short of an indication of how he ran this country over the past few years and what you can expect if the country were to unfortunately fall into his hands again.”“Rufus Ewing is the FIRST Leader in our Country’s History to ever get an election date wrong! We assure our supporters that we are more than ready for December 5th or any date to come. We encourage all voters to be patient until the new date is set but to also take note of the PNP’s weak, incompetent leader who has not even gotten the election date right.” “Let’s be all in for a PDM Win! Enough Is Enough! It Is Time For A Change!” Related Items:
