Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… Tags:#start If your job requires you to have your finger on the pulse of an industry, then you should take note. Curated feed community Collected offers users a great option for aggregating the latest info from their favorite sites. First developed by Stockholm-based new media agency Great Works, Collected aggregates feeds from blogs, YouTube, Twitter, Flickr and Friendfeed and allows you to create fast web-based collections. Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting Related Posts In our upcoming report The Real-Time Web and Its Future, we describe Collected as “a reverse Tumblr or Posterous, for OPML files.” While some users choose to connect their own identities or create entertaining collections like Ashton Kutcher’s NFL Tweets, we see this as a great opportunity for professional bloggers and journalists. Collected lets you streamline your news in manageable subject-specific collections. As we note in our report, “Collected is one of an increasing number of stream reader services we’re seeing that don’t offer a “river of news” view, [instead] it forces you to look at collections one at a time.” Coupled with the fact that the site offers a clean blog-like interface, Collected makes for a great discovery experience. Similar to how Lazyfeed lets users search topic-specific feeds, Collected allows you to search collections to find new feeds and like-minded community members. Users then “favorite” each other to follow each others’ collections. Collected’s new mobile site allows you to view collections on the go. If you’re tired of cleaning up your regular feeds and you’re too impatient to wait for an adaptive news reader application like Parse.ly, then Collected just might be your answer.

What it Takes to Build a Highly Secure FinTech … Boston has long been associated with beacons and lanterns, and even today the reputation holds. Only now Boston is lighting the way for a new community: tech. Never content to live in the shadows of more significant tech enclaves like Silicon Valley and New York, Boston has returned to its “founding fathers” roots. Today the city has reinvented itself — becoming a magnet for innovative companies and supportive founders who are burning up the status quo. Bright minds: Boston’s serial founders know how to succeed.Boston is full of baseball and universities and history and clam chowder — but it’s also full of another iconic group: serial entrepreneurs. There’s a welcoming group of successful business founders that keep coming back to Beantown to foster entrepreneurship and support for small businesses. Sharon Kan — PepperlaneAmong the premiere founders listed here, is Sharon Kan, CEO, and Co-Founder of Pepperlane. Kan has built four successful startups that were acquired by Oracle, Microsoft, Infor, and Barnes & Noble. Sharon Kan also co-founded WIN, the Women Innovating Now Lab at Babson College in Massachusetts — to help female entrepreneurs start their businesses. The mother of two daughters, Kan founded her current company, Pepperlane, to help mothers turn their skills and ideas into businesses that fit into their lives. “Boston is one of the most active startups and tech markets with incredible talent. Four amazing female entrepreneurs co-founded Pepperlane,” says Kan. “One of the reasons I started Pepperlane in Boston is to showcase the power of female-led companies. With more female CEOs and more mom-entrepreneurs, Boston will be a stronger and more attractive destination for new companies.”Ben Jabbawy — PrivyAnother Boston go-getter is Ben Jabbawy, Founder of Privy. Jabbawy’s passion for entrepreneurship has helped him empower and inspire hundreds of thousands of small to medium-sized businesses (SMBs) for nearly a decade. Today more than 200,000 SMBs use Privy’s highly targeted pop-ups, banners, and bars to grow their email lists and increase online sales. Jabbawy says Boston’s background in cutting-edge technology helps fuel the new business economy: “Boston is the founding hometown of so many companies that have paved the way for small business innovation. So the talent pool here explicitly focused on small business, is second to none. “Combine that expertise with our world-class universities and a strong presence of venture capitalists and angel investors, and you have the backbone of an incredibly supportive, entrepreneurial environment.”Kate Winget — GradifiOne of those trusted leaders is Kate Winget, Chief Sales Officer at Gradifi, a company that helps employers create financial benefits for student loans, refinancing, and college education. An active member of the startup ecosystem, she mentors and advises several early-stage companies in the greater Boston area. Winget also serves as a mentor at Northeastern University. Winget believes the supportive nature of Boston’s tech community is what sets it apart: “The Boston startup scene is competitive, but in the sense that we all push each other to grow and succeed. It’s refreshing, really — like good-natured sibling rivalry.” Illumination station: A global hub for Digital Transformation.Digital transformation has become the hot topic du jour as companies of every stripe embrace a digital future.

They can do this while automating manual tasks that take up so much time. Tools like that are thriving in the startup scene here in Boston.”Vishal Sunak — LinkSquaresEvery business is looking for new ways to save time, of course.

LinkSquares is taking off locally, while also gaining adoption in other high-growth hubs across the US and Canada. “We’re excited about changing the landscape of legal technology today and in the near future.”Ady Das — MotusJust down the street is Motus, whose technology seeks to help people identify new efficiencies in their work lives.

It’s part of what makes working in a thriving tech center so exciting.” Progress for Digital TransformationMarie Rosecrans — SalesforceStartups aren’t the only ones reaping the benefits of Boston’s growth. The digital transformation push has been instrumental in luring software giants like Salesforce, too. “Boston has always been a center for innovation and technology, and the recent rise in digital transformation has been inspiring,” says Marie Rosecrans, SVP of SMB Marketing at Salesforce. “It was a no-brainer for Salesforce to strengthen our presence here.” To that end, Salesforce is hosting one of its acclaimed Growth Camp events in Boston on June 5 at District Hall in Boston. Any startup or small business looking for free help, advice, and resources is invited to attend for free. Enlightened community: A brilliant startup ecosystem.And Boston wouldn’t be the thriving tech hotspot it is today without its boisterous and tight-knit startup ecosystem. Just ask Stephanie Roulic, Founder and Lead Organizer at Startup Boston, an all-volunteer team mission-driven to grow Boston’s startup scene. “Boston has everything going for it — the people, the skills, the growth market,” says Roulic. “I may be biased, but in my eyes, there’s no greater place to start a business right now,”Adding some structure is Mass TLC, the largest and most powerful technology association in the region. MassTLC’s mission is to accelerate growth, innovation, and the development of an inclusive tech ecosystem in Massachusetts. Light it up: Boston is a beacon for new technology and startups.Boston has always loved its reputation as an original. Its current status as a unique east coast technology center is no exception.

Is Boston ready to be the new Tech Town? All signs point to the affirmative. Maybe that free Salesforce Growth Camp conference can help you get in on the action.

Deeney praises Watford teammates for Woking FA Cup winby Paul Vegas10 months agoSend to a friendShare the loveTroy Deeney praised his Watford teammates for their FA Cup win at Woking.Deeney came off the substitutes’ bench to score in the 2-0 victory.Speaking to BT Sport after the match, Deeney said: “It was all about mentality and we want to give a massive respect and well done to Woking, they gave us a good fight and stayed in it until the end but I think the professionalism of our boys showed over the course of the game.“This guy (Hughes) was fantastic obviously with the goal, but you can look at (Isaac) Success, (Adalberto) Penaranda, many people all throughout the team who did really well. They set the tone and then obviously when I came on, I tried to stick with it or add a little bit more.” Asked about his goal, Deeney said: “I like a little tap in. To be fair that’s something I’ve worked on a lot this season. Getting back into the six-yard box was what I was known for in the Championship, but in the Premier League I’ve kind of come away from it, trying to be a bit more of a player. Now I’ll let these boys be the players and I do what I do.“It’s nice obviously to continue the run, that’s three two games (following his brace in the 3-3 draw at Bournemouth) so I’ve just got to carry on. I’m not going to get carried away because this is football and you can go on a drought very quickly, but I’ll enjoy this moment and back to work tomorrow.” About the authorPaul VegasShare the loveHave your say

Former Louisville Player Chris Jones Tweets, Deletes Comment Seemingly Regarding The School’s Alleged Sex Scandal
Update: Jones has clarified that his message contains the lyrics to a Future song. We’re unable to find matching lyrics, but we’ll take him at his [email protected] no don’t lie its a song make sure you put that in there— Chris Jones (@iAM_UNGUARDABLE) October 8, 2015Earlier: Former Louisville guard Chris Jones, who was dismissed from the program back in February, has chimed in on the alleged sex scandal involving the university’s basketball program. Jones tweeted, then deleted the below message, presumably implying that some of his former teammates (and a few then-recruits) are talking to the NCAA.Earlier today, it was reported that JaQuan Lyle, a freshman at Ohio State, confirmed the allegations to the NCAA when he was recently interviewed. It’s unknown at this time who else the organization has spoken to.Jones’ tweet doesn’t necessarily imply any kind of guilt, but we imagine he isn’t doing the school any favors. This story just seems to be unfolding.

On the first day when I arrived at the airport, I will never forget the reception you gave me.“Secondly, to all the owners of the football club for creating this beautiful stadium. When I spoke to them about coming here to play I could tell the excitement they had with the stadium.“I’ve seen the new training ground as well which will be completed next year. It played a big part in me coming here.Report: Rooney talks Engalnd Kane and Guardiola George Patchias – September 12, 2019 Wayne Rooney has spoken of his England record, Harry Kane smashing it and Pep Guardiola for England.In an interview on his Wayne Rooney podcast…“I’ve come here to win, to help this team move forward and win titles, that’s my job here.

Steven Gerrard has asked for more quality to deliver a major success on the European scene after his team crashed out of the Europa League.Rangers were beaten 1-0 late in the game by Rapid’s Dejan Ljubicic in a keenly contested affair.Gerrard tweaked the formation and personnel from the side that drew with Dundee last weekend but reserved praise for his team despite the disappointing result.“I thought we were good for 80 minutes,” he revealed STV. “I can’t really ask the players to give any more.“With what we had available tonight, everyone gave an almighty effort.“Obviously as the game was getting to the final stages we were trying to roll the dice and go a little bit more adventurous to try and create something. To try and create that moment that we needed at 0-0.Owen reveals why Liverpool didn’t offer Gerrard a new contract Manuel R. Medina – September 6, 2019 According to Owen, the Reds wanted to sell Gerrard two years before he left the club and that’s why they didn’t offer him a contract renewal.“Unfortunately we’ve conceded a counter-attack but I think it’s very hard for me to criticise the players for what they gave tonight.“We’ve certainly been tested,” Gerrard said. “I think as a group we haven’t helped ourselves in certain situations with suspensions and availability.“Obviously injuries at certain times like Ryan Kent at the weekend. To not have Daniel Candeias and Kent available affects the group. We haven’t helped ourselves throughout the campaign.“I think in terms of numbers we’ve had enough to cope but to compete at this level with ambitions to go further than the group it’s obvious to me that the players need some help. That means quality players that can come in and help.“We focus domestically now to put ourselves in position to come back again.”
