Local hip hop act CHOEB racks up views for new video ‘Magic Touch’

first_imgEntertainmentLocalNews Local hip hop act CHOEB racks up views for new video ‘Magic Touch’ by: – February 28, 2012 Sharing is caring! Share 72 Views   8 comments Tweetcenter_img Share Share The town of Portsmouth continues to turn heads locally with refreshing young musical talent and excellent music videos to complement the songs.Hot on the heels of the Ncore Band’s Deja Buile music video, the second-town based hip hop group CHOEB has released the video for their hit song ‘Magic Touch.’The video has set the social media, especially Facebook, abuzz, and quickly racked up well over 1000 views in less than 24 hours since its release on Sunday, February 26.‘Magic Touch’ is the third single on CHOEB’s first official album, titled “Under the Lights.” The video was directed by Chad Ambo, a recent university graduate who specialized in Multimedia Production at the University of the West Indies Mona Campus.Responding to questions about the viability of a hip-hop group in Dominica, and whether or not it is an attempt at replicating America culture, Ambo responded, “If you look on the international scene right now you have artists like Rihanna, Akon and Nicki Minaj who have non-US roots, and have gone on to dominate the American charts and market. The CHOEB members are talented; who knows if they will get the opportunity to export this talent? But I see nothing wrong in allowing young people to channel their time and energy into positive things that they enjoy doing, instead of idling and getting involved in negative acts.”You can learn more about CHOEB by visiting their official Facebook page: http://www.facebook.com/pages/CHOEB/124096690939180Click here to view CHOEB’s hit ‘Magic Touch’: [youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5txJ4pckbPc&feature=youtu.be [/youtube]last_img read more

Hughes ‘hopes Chelsea drop Terry’ and Murphy tipped to stay

first_imgThe Daily Star claim Mark Hughes thinks Chelsea should drop John Terry for this weekend’s west London derby.Picking up on a remark made by the QPR boss, it is suggested that Hughes is hoping Terry will not feature in the game at Stamford Bridge, thus avoiding more controversy in the Anton Ferdinand race row.There has been speculation over whether Rangers’ players will agree to shake Terry’s hand ahead of the kick-off.Asked whether they would do so, Hughes said: “I’ve not looked that far ahead. He’s got a busy week, perhaps he won’t play. Let’s hope so.”Meanwhile, The Daily Mail report that Danny Murphy is set to sign a new contract to stay at Fulham despite interest from QPR.Advertising on West London Sport  Follow West London Sport on TwitterFind us on Facebooklast_img read more

Happy Birthday EarthCaching – EarthCaches Turn 8 Today

first_img“The Pinnacles” EarthCache in Malaysia (GC19A54)The world’s first EarthCache turns eight-years-old today.  Saying “Happy Birthday!” is as easy as logging an EarthCache. Chances are there’s one close to where you’re sitting right now. There are plenty of EarthCaches, think thousands and thousands, around the globe. But that wasn’t the case back in 2004.“Earthcache I – a simple geology tour of Wasp Head” (GCHFT2) triggered a seismic movement in geocaching. The first EarthCache was located in Australia. It was placed by geoaware on January 10, 2004. Since then more than 17,000 EarthCaches have been published, popping up on every continent on the planet.Each EarthCache must share specific characteristics before being published. There’s no physical cache. At every EarthCache, geocachers learn about the forces that sculpted the earth. EarthCaches showcase volcanoes, seismic fault lines, salt flats, bizarre rock structures and more. Each Earthcache reveals how scientists understand our planet.EarthCache at a green sand beach in Hawaii “Olivine” (GC1M15H)To log an EarthCache geocachers must demonstrate to the cache owner what they learned about a specific geological feature. Geocachers might measure a rock structure or record a tidal movement. At the EarthCache “Olivine” in Hawaii, geocachers must answer questions about the unique green grains of sand.EarthCaches are gaining in popularity as they grow older and more established in the geocaching world. Organizers are even hosting the first International EarthCache Event (GC33E6X) this year. It’ll take place in September near Portland, Maine, USA. More than 250 geocachers have already logged a “Will Attend.”You can learn more about EarthCaching by watching the video below.[vsw id=”f11fxuNsaE8″ source=”youtube” width=”425″ height=”344″ autoplay=”no”]Share with your Friends:More SharePrint RelatedInside Geocaching HQ Podcast Transcript (Episode 13): EarthCachesMay 10, 2018In “Community”Your Path to Platinum EarthCachingFebruary 11, 2015In “Community”The Creator of EarthCaching talks about the 10th AnniversaryJanuary 10, 2014In “Community”last_img read more

What Is Right for One Salesperson

first_imgThere are salespeople who are exceedingly effective at prospecting, particularly cold calls. They can schedule the appointments they need with little trouble, and they require far fewer calls than their peers. They can do in 20 calls what another person might do in 80 or 100 calls.Some salespeople have shockingly fast rapport skills. They immediately connect with people, and not just their prospective clients. They generate likability and trust faster than most, but especially with people with slow rapport skills. People with low rapport skills take longer to warm up to, even if they eventually create lifelong relationships.Hunters love to win new business, and many times, they aren’t so great at maintaining those relationships because they prefer to move onto the next deal. Farmers, who also create opportunities, tend to prefer maintaining relationships rather than creating new ones. They prefer to manage a book of business rather than create new opportunities.If you have more than one child, and you treat both of them the same, you are abusing one (or both) of them.To believe that all salespeople need to do the same amount of prospecting to generate the result they need is to mistakenly believe that they are all equally competent. Choosing an activity quota can drive the right activity, but some percentage of your team should likely be doing much more than the number that you are comfortable dictating, and a few others can reach their goals with less. The dial is not an outcome; it is simply an activity.The ability to generate the relationships that create and move opportunities quickly and effectively through the pipeline also varies. Some people can develop trust quickly, and they can leverage the same insight as someone else to greater effect faster. Even though we desperately want sales to be a repeatable process, these variations in intangibles exist. What you expect from one person may be too much to expect from another.Putting a hunter in a farmer role is to misuse their primary talents, and it is likely to frustrate them to no end. Asking a farmer to go into white space and create opportunities is asking too much of them. In both cases, you are not asking someone to do something they cannot do, you are asking them to be something that they are not.Maximizing your results as a leader means making sure you have the right people in the right roles, that you have the goals and objectives aligned with what they are capable of producing, and managing them as individuals. To do less than this is to refuse to believe the variations that exist, even if you find them inconvenient. Get the Free eBook! Learn how to sell without a sales manager. Download my free eBook!

JD(U) leader found dead in police station

first_imgA local leader of the ruling JD(U) in Bihar was found dead in the toilet inside a police station, hours after being picked up for interrogation, evoking violent protests from residents of his village in Nalanda district. Three policemen were arrested in connection with the Dalit politician’s death, a communication from the district administration said on Friday. Ganesh Ravidas (45) was found hanging from the ceiling of the toilet at Nagarnausa police station in Nalanda district on late Thursday night, official sources said. Ravidas, who was the block president of the party’s Mahadalit cell, was picked up for interrogation in connection with the kidnapping of a girl wherein he was not named an accused, the sources said.Suicide prevention helpline: Sanjivini, Society for Mental Health,Telephone: 011-4076 9002, Monday-Saturday, 10 am -7.30 pmlast_img read more

I lost my wife, I lost my kids, I’m trying to keep up my life again. But I wished somebody would have talked to me early on as a player to say that if you’re hurting or if you’re going through something, you need to talk to somebody, we put some phone numbers up here,” Dela Cruz shared.“I’m just one guy that has a voice.
