Verizon is dealing with a bit of backlash over one high-profile tech blogger’s struggle to activate a new Nexus 7 with LTE on its network. How can a company that has agreed to play by the FCC’s rules justify not activating this particular device?Quite easily, actually — by pointing out that it hasn’t been certified. That’s despite the fact that Google proudly displayed the Verizon logo next to the new Nexus 7 during its big reveal several months ago.And, yes, Verizon agreed to allow any device onto its networks as per the terms of the Block C wireless spectrum auction. No, that doesn’t mean that Verizon is keen on telling its staff to spend their time activating phones, tablets, hotspots, or laptops that have been purchased elsewhere.Verizon — like all carriers — would prefer to sell shoppers the devices they’re going to use on its network. Staff are trained to deal with the Verizon line-up, which is to be expected. There are thousands of devices on the market and it would be foolish to try and make sure staff are prepared to program and support every last one of them.If noting that the N7 hasn’t been certified doesn’t carry enough weight, then Verizon could always lean on the “out” that was listed in the FCC rules. They state that a carrier can block a device if it poses a “reasonable network security” risk, which is easy enough to claim. If Verizon hasn’t thoroughly inspected the Asus/Google firmware, how does it really know the N7 is safe?Cheesey, yes, but that’s what the FCC drafted up.What makes this case truly curious, though, is that the Nexus 7 definitely works fine on Verizon LTE. Swap in a SIM from one of your other Verizon devices, and you’ll be surfing in no time. Just like you can with virtually any device that supports the correct bands.So why not just sell a SIM to a customer like Jeff Jarvis, attach it to his existing shared plan, and start billing him the $10 a month with the caveat that he’s using an unsupported tablet and can’t back out of the deal? It certainly seems doable. Instead, Verizon played the role of the stodgy, unhelpful carrier and maintained the company line that “not all LTE tablets are created equal.”You’d think that the Nexus 7 furore would make Verizon change its tune, but then again… these are the kinds of situations carrier deal with. It’s old hat to them, and may not elicit anything more than a press release laden with corporate double-speak.
Athens is one of the least green cities of Europe, however Athens Anaplasis SA has been created to undertake the design, the organising process and the implementation of an extensive plan for its beautification.The 25-year plan for the remodelling of the city has an emphasis on the renovation of the city centre, especially the “commercial triangle” – the capital’s central retail district.The purpose is to improve everyday life for the residents and visitors of these areas, promoting social cohesion and financial development. Athens Anaplasis’ President and CEO is Dr Nikos Belavilas, architect and Associate Professor of urban planning and urban history at the NTUA School of Architecture. Its board of directors, advisory board and scientific committee feature multiple esteemed architects, urban planners, civil engineers, archaeologists and academics.According to President and CEO Nikos Belavilas, Athens Anaplasis S.A. is not meant to replace or undermine the work of the Municipality of Athens or the Attica Region, but instead to function as a useful instrument to help coordinate metropolitan regeneration plans. Speaking to Athens daily Kathimerini newspaper, Belavilas pointed out that city planning must have an outlook of 15 to 20 years, while local government and ministries make decisions based on a “term-of-office” time frame.The company has undertaken several ambitious projects, including the reuse of Alexandras Ave residential blocks (prosfygika), the regeneration of the complex of the Polytechnic School and the Archaeological Museum, the extension of the pedestrian streets in order to link the city’s “long archaeological walk” with Akadimia Platonos (furthering the unification of the archaeological sites of Athens), the upgrade of Pireos Street, Theatrou Square and Syngrou Avenue, the restoration of the Lycabettus Hill theatre and the Special Spatial Plan for the New Centre of Athens.Here is a quick overview of some of Athens Anaplasis projects and proposals:Refugee tenements on Alexandras AveThere are eight residential blocks on Alexandras Avenue, known as prosfygika (from the word prosfygas, refugee), constructed between 1933 and 1936, to serve as social housing for Asia Minor refugees. They consist of 228 apartments in total of approximately 50sqm each. The buildings having designated as monuments in 2003 (two of them) and 2009 (the remaining six). Athens Anaplasis’ aim is to renovate and restore the facades and common areas (stairways, roof decks) of all eight buildings and the apartments belonging to the Region of Attica, in order to provide subsidised housing as well as spaces for a museum of “Asia Minor memory”.Special Spatial Plan for the New Historic CentreThe economic crisis has brought rapid changes to the city’s urban fabric, and the centre of Athens is subject to various other sources of pressure. As a result, the boundaries of what we call the Historic Center of Athens have diffused. The Special Spatial Plan for the New Center of Athens is meant to redefine these boundaries to include neighbourhoods such as Koukaki and Technopolis, as well as to propose measures for the protection of areas under severe pressure, either tourist or commercial, and set rules and directives concerning development within them.The purpose is not to suppress or restrict tourism or commercial / business activities but to regulate and monitor them in order to protect residential areas and neighbourhood, historical sites and places deeply affected by what modern urban planning determines as gentrification. The CFA aims to explore each area’s growth potential and need for conservation and set the terms and directions of their long-term development.Architectural CompetitionAthens Anaplasis S.A. launched an open architectural competition in February for the renewal of the capital’s centre, a project centered on the area bordered by Stadiou, Pireos and Ermou streets. The competition, financed by the Ministry of Infrastructure, Transport and Networks, has been designed in accordance with the current institutional framework and taking into account the ongoing projects undertaken by both the local and general government. Two more competitions are going to be announced within the next months, concerning the upgrade of Pireos Street and the restoration of the Lycabettus Hill theatre.READ MORE: Acropolis Museum for architecture prizeUncovering of Ilissos RiverIlissos is an ancient river of Athens, now largely channeled underground, having been covered during the rapid urban development of Athens in the interwar period. A tram line is now built on top of it. Structural damage has been caused to the tunnel beneath the track, and in October the tram line was closed down. Athens Anaplasis has suggested that, instead of a costly reinforcement of the tunnel to repair the track, we should instead opt for a diversion of the tram line, so that the river can be uncovered.Speaking to the Telegraph, urban planner Katerina Christoforaki, member of the Athens Anaplasis technical team, explained that what they propose is to uncover the river and create a pathway and a park that would lead from the Acropolis to the National Museum of Contemporary Art, “right through the heart of the city.” According to Christoforaki, the project has the support of the Greek government and locals agencies but would take around a decade to be completed. She claims, however, that the result is “something that we believe most Athenians would like to see.”According to CEO Nikos Belavilas the idea, now a “firm plan”, includes the creation of a broad band of parkland on both banks of the newly-exposed river, running south from the Panathenaic Stadium – home of the revived 1896 Olympic Games – for 1.2 km (0.7 miles).

Orange est l’un des meilleurs vendeurs d’iPhone dans le mondeFrance – L’iPhone cartonne dans le monde et Orange n’est pas étranger à ce succès. L’opérateur est le deuxième vendeur mondial du smartphone d’Apple.Sur 14,1 millions d’iPhone vendus dans le monde lors du quatrième trimestre fiscal, 5,6% l’ont été par Orange. Avec l’iPhone 4, l’opérateur améliore son record avec 800.000 unités écoulées depuis fin juin. Ce phénomène lui permet d’engranger de larges bénéfices sur les ventes d’abonnement, mais le met aussi en position de force face à Apple afin de distribuer la tablette iPad. Pour le moment, la firme à la pomme ne souhaite pas traiter avec les opérateurs pour distribuer sa tablette. Au classement de ventes d’iPhone, Orange se classe juste derrière le géant AT&T.Le 21 octobre 2010 à 14:40 • Emmanuel Perrin

Shaikpet: The Kotha Cheruvu Lake in Shaikpet, once a clean water source for the locals has become the victim to modern urbanisation and has turned into a dumping ground like many other water bodies in Hyderabad over the years.A decade ago, locals used to do fishing as the lake abounded in marine life, but now it is nothing but an abandoned water body filled with garbage, sewerage and toxic waste dumped by nearby residences and hospitals resulting in killing all the marine life in the lake. Also Read – Hyderabad: Intermediate student dies of cardiac arrest in class Advertise With Us During a recent surprise visit to the Shaikpet Kotha Cheruvu, the GHMC Commissioner Dana Kishore said the GHMC would take necessary actions to clean the water hyacinths and will do fogging to curb mosquito problem.

With the help of an NGO ‘Ananda Foundation’ the locals have come together and are supporting the cause to make the lake clean, make it part of a healthy ecosystem again. Also Read – Hyderabad: Wall collapse in Kukatpally damages four cars Advertise With Us Seetha Anand Vaidyam, the founder of Ananda Foundation, has been fighting for the conservation of this water body for years. Speaking about the situation of the lake she said, “Kotha Cheruvu used to be a beautiful and clean lake where fish grew in abundance. Today it is a toxic, stinking and a breeding place for mosquitoes. In and around the lake garbage is dumped and not cleared daily. It affects the air, water and spreads diseases in this area.” Advertise With Us Further, she added “The GHMC should urgently stop dumping garbage in this area and clean the lake and stop toxic effluents from being pumped into the lake. It’s been four weeks we have cleaned the surrounding premises of the lake as it was filled with garbage dumps we will start cleaning the lake in a few days.” With a common goal of saving this lake, they are conducting weekly cleaning drives throughout the year. The lake cleanup drives saw several people participating ranging from students to senior citizens. This year-long drive involves community awareness, plantation and water treatment. Gunturu Harshada, a local resident, shared, “Living near the lake for many years, I have experienced firsthand the detrimental and harmful pollution it has endeared. The quality of the immediate surrounding environment has also degraded substantially over a few years.” “We know how harmful the air we breathe in is. Unless the littering and other forms of pollution stop attempts to clean the lake and its surroundings will only have temporary relief,” she added.

Opinions expressed by Entrepreneur contributors are their own. Free Workshop | August 28: Get Better Engagement and Build Trust With Customers Now Enroll Now for Free This article is included in Entrepreneur Voices on Growth Hacking, a new book containing insights from more than 20 contributors, entrepreneurs, and thought leaders.So you’ve heard of growth hacking and you want it. If you’re an entrepreneur, you’d be crazy not to want it. Growth? Hacking? Heck, yes! I’ll order three of those, please!Related: How Growth Hacking Is Redefining MarketingUnfortunately, growth hacking is often misunderstood. Because, the word “growth” is undeniably positive, and “hack” is a buzzword. But what we’re left with is an emotionally appealing word without a whole lot of substanceSo, how do you hire a growth-hacking ninja who will skyrocket your startup to the top?1. Understand what growth hacking is and what it is not.Let’s use Wikipedia’s definition to wrap our heads around the concept: Growth hacking is a marketing technique developed by technology startups which use creativity, analytical thinking and social metrics to sell products and gain exposure.In other words, it’s marketing where you are free to color outside the lines. Gone are the marketing conventions of Mad Men. In those admen’s place are a slew of social-media-oriented and Internet-powered techniques combined with other mystical ingredients that together make up today’s digital marketing milieu.Yes, growth hacking is all of that and more. But don’t let “techniques” throw you off. Growth hacking isn’t all technique. Growth hacking is a mindset — a way of approaching the whole idea of marketing. Sean Ellis — the man who coined the term “growth hacking” — defined it as a person whose true north is growth. And that definition says nothing about techniques.That’s why I want to emphasize growth hacking as a mindset — a focus, rather than a set of systems. Growth hacking requires outside-the-box thinking: skepticism toward conventional marketing methods, plus the ability to pivot and adapt to new situations. So, how exactly do you find the perfect person who possesses all of these characteristics?2. Look for a strategist, not a technician.You want to find someone who is a master of strategy rather than actual technical implementation.Let me illustrate. One growth-hacking technique is split testing (a method of conducting controlled experiments to improve a website). You could do one of two things: 1) Hire a conversion optimizer who is skilled at split testing; or: 2) Hire a growth hacker who tells you to do split testing (but may not personally be able to do it). See the difference?The growth hacker knows that you need split testing in order to have a website that is optimized for conversions. The conversion optimizer knows how to do the split testing and how to implement the winning variation.Strategists can pull together all the different pieces of marketing and growth, synthesizing them into a powerful force that allows you to grow at a ridiculous rate. They may not know the nitty gritty of every piece, but they recognize the importance of every piece and how they work together.Related: 5 Growth-Hacking Strategies to Increase Your App Downloads3. Look not for a ‘growth hacker,’ but a marketer with a growth-hacking focus.Here’s a classic rookie mistake. An entrepreneur wants a “growth hacker.” So, he or she prances off to Craigslist or LinkedIn to find one. But, hold up a sec.Remember, growth hacking is a mindset. It’s not a job description. It’s an approach to marketing. If someone calls himself a “growth hacker,” he may or may not indeed be a growth hacker. In some cases, he may completely misunderstand growth hacking altogether.Rather than look for a “growth hacker,” then, seek out a really good marketer who possesses a growth-hacking focus.4. Seek out someone who’s done it before.The best growth hackers are those who have hacked growth before. This should be obvious. Unfortunately it’s easy to get swept up in the hype and the verbiage, and in the visions of exploding growth. When the happens, you can overlook the basic qualifying feature of the growth hacker: Has she done it before?Sean Ellis became the consummate growth hacker of Silicon Valley when he discovered the power of disruptive marketing. He was able to think beyond techniques, to truly analyze the characteristic aspects of a business. And he got results. He didn’t have a playbook he could hand off to a “marketing guy.” Instead, he created systems and processes that could be scaled and maintained, to channel torrents of growth into a business.Can you hire Sean Ellis? Yes, kind of. But the more important thing is to find someone who has a few notches in his or her marketing belt — innovative approaches to marketing that have produced bottom-line results.5. Become a growth hacker yourself, and hire growth hacking specialists.One of the most direct routes to finding a kickass growth hacker is to be one. How, you ask?At this point, it’s become a mantra in this article, but I will reiterate it. Growth hacking is a mindset. It’s not a set of sexy techniques. It’s not a method. In fact, growth hacking can get wild and out of control. Why?Because it’s a mindset. Growth hacking is fueled by an insatiable desire to grow, come hell or high water. Growth hacking stops at nothing to achieve the goal of growth. Growth hacking rests on trial and error, sometimes to the point of losing touch with reality. But that’s kind of the whole point.Growth hacking doesn’t come with a how-to guide. Growth hacking feeds off innovation. So, here’s how to begin your personal transformation into a growth hacker:Understand marketing at a foundational level. I’m not talking about methods. I’m talking about the entire approach of marketing. You must know your customers, your market and understand data.Discover what’s working. Become familiar with growth-hacking techniques that have worked for other startups. Read about the growth sagas of Airbnb, Dropbox and Uber to learn how they did it.Innovate. Create. Test. You’ll find your greatest successes come from just trying stuff. As Sean Ellis wrote, “Since most growth ideas fail, it becomes critical to test a lot of them. The faster you can hack together an idea, the sooner you can start testing it for some signs of life.”ConclusionThe minute you think you understand growth hacking is the minute you forget what it is. Don’t worry, you’re in good company. Growth hacking is an elusive concept. Nobody owns a definition. Just as there’s no single correct definition, so is there no single right profile for the ideal growth hacker. There are no lists of qualifications, years of experience or types of software a growth hacker needs to know.You’ll know your growth hacker when you meet him — or her. She’ll be wild-eyed talking about growth, and passionate about innovation. She will be experienced in the art and ready to make a positive impact on your business.Related: 6 Growth Hack Techniques You Can Try TodayHave you hired a growth hacker? What’s your experience?
