Two of these 64 youngsters will be from India. Delivering the all-important football to the pitch where soccer legends will play for the ultimate prize in the sport, these young people will play a key role in each and every pre-match ceremony.This is an important moment for Kia India and indeed the country as a whole. Never before has India had an official representation at the FIFA World Cup and Kia, a brand synonymous with sport and ‘the power to surprise’ has brought it to the Indian people, only a short while after entering the market.The Kia OMBC campaign has been launched across India on social media and other digital platforms from yesterday, Tuesday, April 10. It is geared towards all young football fans with aspirations of being the footballers of the future. To enter the first phase of this exclusive competition, the guardian of the entrant must record and submit a short film of them showing their passion, skill and interest for the game – all entrant videos should be uploaded to In the second phase, the shortlisted entrants will be called for an on-site selection process based on their football skills, agility, attitude and teamwork. From a shortlist of six, Kia judges will select their best two to be the OMBC and the other four will accompany them to witness the matches. For the trip to Russia, Kia Motors will cover all travel and accommodation costs for the winners and their guardian.Kia Motors’ partnership with FIFA goes back to 2007 and during this time it has grown more committed to the relationship between football, its fans and Kia drivers around the world.“As FIFA sets the standard for the highest level of football in the world, Kia will continue to challenge itself in achieving the highest levels of quality, design and performance in our new generation cars being specifically designed for the Indian market,” said, Manohar Bhat, Head- Marketing and Sales, Kia Motors India. “Football has steadily been gaining ground within India and there are many young sports enthusiasts of all ages who would be excited to vie and hopefully win a coveted slot to be a match ball carrier. We look forward to adding Indian colours to an already successful partnership with FIFA and hope to fulfil the aspirations of many young Indian football fans in the years to come,” he added.Kia Motors, in April 2017, has signed a memorandum of understanding with the Andhra Pradesh, India, to build a new manufacturing facility in Anantapur district. Construction of Kia Motors’ first manufacturing facility in India is underway.

Aviva Premiership: Should the salary cap be abolished?

first_imgThe Aviva Premiership’s salary cap has always caused debate, so one writer puts the case for scrapping it Big-money signings by Aviva Premiership clubs have put the salary cap back on the agenda – but there is a way to stop the whispers.When Wasps announced that South African full-back Willie le Roux would be arriving at the Ricoh Arena just after Christmas it raised the stakes for the forthcoming Premiership season and raised more than a few eyebrows around the country.Le Roux is a fine player, and a welcome addition to the league, but it put the spending of clubs and the salary cap back on the agenda – not that it ever really went away. Wasps have signed amongst others Danny Cipriani, Kurtley Beale and Kyle Eastmond and they are not the only ones who have been getting the cheque book out.JP Pietersen, Matt Toomua, Taulupe Faletau, Luke Charteris, Schalk Burger, Louis Picamoles, Mike Phillips and Soane Tonga’uiha will all be pitching up at a Premiership club near you and none of them are coming for nothing.Star signing: Wales No 8 Taulupe Faletau has swapped the Dragons for Bath. Photo: Getty ImagesAnd every time a club signs one of these established international stars to add to a squad that already has a few high-earning England players in it, the whispers start. How can they afford it? Are they really under the salary cap? Is that new fly-half’s wife also on the payroll?There is no public evidence that anyone has flouted it, although the rumour mill was in full swing last autumn when Premiership Rugby investigated potential breaches and no one got fined. There were apparently some financial settlements made but the full extent of them was never revealed because of commercial confidentiality. So first some facts about the salary cap.This season clubs can spend £6.5m on players, excluding two marquee players. The so-called regulations on marquee players, whose wages are paid outside of the cap, are pretty dry reading but one of them must not have played in the Premiership for 12 months and another can have been at the club for two seasons before the current campaign.So, if you if look at the squad lists you would say big-name foreign newcomers are outside the cap and some heavyweight England players who have just signed new contracts might be as well.French exchange: Louis Picamoles, the France No 8, has joined Northampton. Photo: Getty ImagesWith credits for producing home-grown players, an extra payment for providing England senior players and a pot to cover long-term injured players, it has been predicted that teams could be shelling out about £10m in wages. And this could increase for the 2017-18 season when the basic cap is raised to £7m. It is all a bit of a minefield if you haven’t got a qualification in number-crunching. LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Clubs are getting more cash as a result of the new deal recently forged with the RFU but one chief executive has predicted that increased wages will see other areas neglected, such as development of stadia. Another club boss wants the salary cap frozen after next season. But if we want to get shot of all the innuendo and accusations of abusing the limits, why not get shot of the cap as well?I couldn’t give a monkey’s how clubs run their business. If they can make a few quid by having Elton John or Bruce Springsteen playing at their grounds and want to spend it on players, then good to luck to them. Likewise if they can’t have super groups playing every now and again, then they might have to cut their cloth. It is called business and some clubs might need to get used to it.If they sell more pints of beer on a match day and want to use it for players, then they should be allowed to, so it might be easier if we binned the salary cap altogether. It would stop all the gossip and people accusing certain teams of being tainted.Fine line: Toulon have been fined for a Top 14 salary cap breach in 2014-15. Photo: Getty ImagesIt will now be said that more clubs would be in danger of going to the wall if the cap was abolished and a free-for-all was established where wealthy owners could just chuck money at signing every Dan Carter and Matt Giteau they can get their hands on.No one wants to see what has happened in Premier League football, where clubs are used as vanity and money-making projects by overseas owners to the detriment of the national side, but a quick glance around the top tier of English rugby shows you that the men and women who run these clubs are no one’s ideas of mugs.No cap would probably raise the spectre of English players struggling to come through whilst their position was filled by a southern hemisphere big cheese. But that could be overcome by forcing clubs to have a certain number of home-grown players in each match-day squad.Rather than give them an allowance for having a certain percentage of English-qualified players in match-day squads, the powers-that-be could dock them points if they don’t. If England have a game that weekend and you have given Eddie Jones three or four of your top boys, it would be a different matter.center_img Scrap the cap? Premiership clubs have a standard cap of £6.5m to spend on players. Photo: Getty Images It would not be perfect, but a points deduction would hurt them properly and without the salary cap we wouldn’t have people whispering behind their hands about who is under and who is over.For the latest Rugby World subscription offers, click here.last_img read more

You’ve Still Got Mail, says Niroo Rad

first_imgNiroo Rad started his career at a start-up software company developing and implementing financial management systems. Following the sale of the business in 1985, he started an Apple Macintosh dealership that quickly became the UK’s second largest Macintosh reseller. Niroo then joined Blyth Software where he led the company’s expansion into seven European countries and the US and was one of the driving forces behind its successful floatation on the NASDAQ market in 1989. Niroo then went on to found Caspian in 1990 where he successfully developed and implemented the Caspian suite of CRM software in UK. The relationship between ASI Inc and Caspian began in 1996 and culminated with ASI acquiring Caspian in April 2004, as part of its global expansion programme. Charities fear that if consumers can opt-out of door drop mail – as they can do for addressed direct marketing communications – their ability to reach potential donors will be hampered. But far from being alarmed by the DMA’s plan, fundraisers should see it as an opportunity to reach their audiences better with more targeted campaigns using digital marketing.To date, most charities have failed to take full advantage of the digital channel as a way to target donors. Compared to some of the more creative websites that can be found online, many fundraising websites can appear uninviting, out-of-date and uninspiring to potential donors. The proposed changes provide a real opportunity to persuade a charity’s trustees that it is now time to invest properly in digital marketing and create a forum where they can really interact with their donors. While some people are happy to receive direct unaddressed mail through their letterbox, others find this method intrusive and an environmental waste, and would prefer to be reached through other channels. What’s more, the use of the Internet is increasing every day – the Office of National Statistics reports that an estimated 13.9 million households (57% of the UK population) access the Internet from home and in September 2006, three out of four connections did so using broadband – making it a channel that really cannot be ignored any longer.People tend to assume that the older generation is less receptive to marketing online. But with more and more people in their 50s and 60s using the Internet this opinion is no longer valid. Those with an emotional connection to a cause, regardless of their age, will make a donation. If a fundraising organisation does not have a presence online to make it easy for them to donate at the moment they make that connection, it represents a huge opportunity lost.The fact that more people are online now isn’t the only benefit. Online marketing can also reduce a charity’s operational costs, as the total cost of ownership of running a digital campaign is considerably lower than more traditional means of marketing. More importantly, people like being given a choice in how they receive information; a consideration fundraisers need to bear in mind when putting together their marketing strategy.Fundraisers need to make their website an extension of their organisation and brand. The trick is how quickly an organisation can improve its website while ensuring that it’s robust enough to manage donations online and target consumers accurately.The first step is to consolidate all donor information into one central database, as the potential for sending out a message twice to the same person is much more likely when delivered by email. Charities also need to be more proactive in getting people to register their email address on the website and opt in to receive regular information from the organisation. Failing that, a short online survey can reveal an enormous amount of profiling information about the type of donors and prospective donors that visit a charity’s website.This information can be used to fine-tune messaging to suit the psychology of the demographic that the charity is trying to appeal to, and will considerably raise the effect of any online marketing campaign. Perhaps more crucially from a marketer’s viewpoint, online marketing offers invaluable market intelligence that simply can’t be achieved through any other medium. Good fundraisers are good marketers – and good marketers always need feedback, such as how many people read the email message, what time of the day most messages are read and whether a message is passed onto other people. With digital marketing, all this information can be fed back to the fundraiser automatically and in real-time.Whether the DMA decides to offer a mailing preference service for door drops or not, the Internet offers an exciting and relevant way of targeting donors through a medium that people are becoming increasingly comfortable with. Ultimately, fundraising organisations need to embrace digital marketing or risk losing valuable donations to more savvy charities that are already one step ahead online and on-course for success.

Door drops – or un-addressed postal mail – are growing in popularity, reaching more than 26 million UK letterboxes every year.For fundraising organisations, door drops can provide a great way of recruiting donors. More tantalising for charities still are findings from the DMA that show 79% of people keep, read or pass on door to door material, while 48% of consumers have responded to a letterbox item.

Election Day enthusiasm doesn’t match early voting

Pascal High School in Fort Worth. Photo by Richard Edgemon. Review: ‘Velvet Buzzsaw’ has a striking visual style but fails to excite or enthrall + posts printWhen polls opened at 7 a.m. at R.L. Pascal High School, 17 voters stood in 50 degree weather waiting to cast their ballots.More votes were cast in Tarrant County during this year’s early voting than in the entire 2014 midterm election, according to the Tarrant County Board of Elections.A record 38 percent of all registered voters in Tarrant County cast an early ballot. One of the draws was the heated race for U.S. Senate where Democrat Beto O’Rourke is trying to unseat Republican Ted Cruz and become the first Democrat in 30 years to win a senate seat.Both campaigns urged voters to head to polls early.When asked about Election Day, one poll worker, who asked to remain anonymous, said that while turnout was higher than usual it wasn’t “anywhere close” to the turnout he saw during early voting.“It’s not the largest turn out we’ve had over the years, but it’s certainly not the lowest,” he said.First time midterm voter Matt Clint, 25,  said the push from his friends on social media is what brought him to the polls.Clint, who voted in the 2016 presidential election, but not in the 2014 midterms, said he “felt like more people were talking about this election than in 2016 and way more than 2014.“I’ve had some of the longest and best political discussions with my friends over the last few months and I thought I should go ahead and vote,” said Clint.That increase in communication and dialogue between people is something that brought Washington D.C. native and regular voter Turner Bridgforth to the polls.“I don’t really like one party over the other, but I see Beto trying to push for different politics,” Bridgforth said. “He’s running for America, not just his party.”Voters like Belinda Lewis, 63, said she feels like her vote actually matters in this election.“This is a critical moment for our nation. I don’t have to worry about the Electoral College. I get to give my say and use my voice.” Richard Edgemon Richard Edgemon TV Review: Netflix’s new show doesn’t lecture viewers about sex ReddIt Richard Edgemon Review: ‘Alita: Battle Angel’ tells a meandering story with stunning visuals, anime action What we’re reading: Former Vice President dies at 93, Chad President killed on frontlines Richard Edgemon ReddIt Previous articleDon’t have a ride to the polls?

Strategy needed to expand bike scheme in Limerick

first_imgAlice in Wonder(fun)land at Lime Tree Theatre A COHERENT strategy is needed for the expansion of the Limerick bike sharing scheme to the University of Limerick in Castletroy, the Limerick Institute of Technology in Moylish and the Crescent Shopping Centre in Dooradoyle.That’s the view of Fine Gael councillor Daniel Butler who claimed that cyclists are currently taking their lives into their own hands when they take to their bikes on busy city roads.Anti Austerity Alliance councillor Paul Keller asked the local authority at this week’s Metropolitan district meeting if there is a timeline for the expansion of the bike sharing scheme to UL, LIT and the Crescent Shopping Centre.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up The existing scheme involves 215 bicycles being made available for short term hire from 23 locations across the city, ranging from King John’s Castle to Mary Immaculate College and O’Callaghan Strand to St John’s Cathedral.Limerick City and County Council director of transport and travel, Kieran Lehane explained that the scheme is sponsored by Coca-Cola and managed by the National Transport Authority (NTA).“Limerick City and County Council has assisted NTA in the rollout of this facility. The sponsorship of the bikes and the contract for the maintenance of the facility is a matter for the NTA,” he added.Independent councillor John Gilligan also felt that people were taking their lives into their hands when taking to a bicycle on busy city roads. Limerick City, he said, deserves a response from University of Limerick (UL) about the scheme.He also had a novel sponsorship idea for the scheme’s expansion.“Ask McDonald’s for a few bob.

The agencies will also create an additional definition of “assessment areas” tied to where deposits are located—ensuring that banks provide loans and other services to low- and moderate-income persons in those areas.The CRA was enacted in the 1960s as a response to redlining—a practice where banks discriminated against prospective customers based primarily on where they lived, or their racial or ethnic background, rather than creditworthiness.Under the current CRA framework, the primary banking regulators—specifically the OCC, Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation, and the Federal Reserve—conduct regular examinations to evaluate banks’ activities to provide credit, services, and make investments in low and moderate-income communities where the banks operate. The act only applies to banks with federally insured deposits.The legislation was last updated in 1995. The proposed CRA rules would apply to federally insured depository institutions supervised by the FDIC and OCC, which conduct approximately 85% of all CRA activity.Chairwoman of the Housing Financial Services Committee Maxine Waters voiced opposition to , Comptroller of the Currency Joseph Otting’s proposal to update the legislation.“Under Comptroller [Joseph] Otting, the Community Reinvestment Act would become the Community Disinvestment Act. Such a radical change to the CRA demands a heightened level of public scrutiny,” she said.According to Committee member Patrick McHenry, reform of the CRA is a “long-time coming.”“The rise of mobile and online banking helps more consumers and communities than the CRA was intended to serve,” he said.
