Tea time in North America Montrealbased DavidsTea steeps its bets in brew

DavidsTea has a new charitable partnership with Me to We to sell a new tea and several accessories. A portion of the sale from each product, available in stores Monday, will go towards funding between one and six months of clean water for a child in Kenya. THE CANADIAN PRESS/Chris Young Tea time in North America? Montreal-based DavidsTea steeps its bets in brew boom by Aleksandra Sagan, The Canadian Press Posted Feb 12, 2016 9:05 am MDT Last Updated Feb 12, 2016 at 10:40 am MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email TORONTO – It’s generally considered fashionable to be late to a party. The co-founder of DavidsTea is hoping that when it comes to tea, it’s also profitable.David Segal is steeping his bets that the West is catching up to the rest of the world when it comes to drinking Earl Grey or chamomile.“North America’s just been a little bit late to the party,” said Segal. “We’ve had a coffee infatuation for an awfully long time.”People around the world consumed 4.84 million tonnes of tea in 2013, according to a report from the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations. Mainland China, India and other parts of the developing world drank more than 83 per cent of that total.“We’re always looking to get more people into tea,” said Segal, who co-founded DavidsTea (Nasdaq:DTEA) along with his cousin Herschel Segal, also the founder of Le Chateau.In its last fiscal year, Montreal-based DavidsTea opened 39 stores and it is planning the same number this year.Since DavidsTea opened its first bricks-and-mortar outlet in 2008 in Toronto, it now boasts 156 stores in Canada and another 37 in the U.S.“It grew faster than I ever could have imagined in those early days,” Segal said.There is a growing demand for tea in both countries, said Amanda Bourlier, a senior analyst at Euromonitor International. The market research firm projects tea sales in the U.S. will outpace overall hot drink sales over the next three to five years.Tea consumption among Canadians is projected to grow nearly 40 per cent by 2020, according to a report on the country’s food trends published by the Agriculture Department. Alcoholic beverage, soft drink and coffee consumption is forecast to grow by between seven and 13 per cent during that time.These tea-drinking newbies are increasingly interested in premium teas and experimenting with flavours, said Bourlier, but no company yet dominates the premium tea market. That positions DavidsTea well to move aggressively, Bourlier said.DavidsTea plans to open another 357 locations, expanding its footprint to 550 stores. That would include 320 locations in the U.S., which would make it a “significant player” in the industry, said Bourlier.She believes these goals are possible, especially in the U.S. where the market is much larger than in Canada.DavidsTea hasn’t offered a timeline for their growth plans.“We adjust as we go,” said Segal.In its third quarter, its most recent earnings report, the company’s revenues grew to $36.3 million from $27.4 million in the third quarter of 2014.There was a lot of buzz surrounding DavidsTea when it went public last June. Within days its shares soared to nearly US$30, but they have since fizzled, trading just above the US$9 mark.Segal said he tries not to watch the company’s stock too much.“My focus is on what we can do to build the brand,” he said, pointing to a new charitable partnership with Me to We to sell a new tea and several accessories. A portion of the sale from each product, available in stores Monday, will go towards funding between one and six months of clean water for a child in Kenya.While the IPO was “a milestone” for the company, DavidsTea needs to focus on its customers to continue growing its brand, Segal said.“That’s really what matters at the end of the day.”Follow @AleksSagan on Twitter.Note to readers: This is a corrected story.

At Security Council Ban urges IsraelPalestine talks to overcome political paralysis

“The parties will have to make the necessary compromises for peace. At the same time, the region and the wider international community must exercise its influence to encourage both sides,” the Secretary-General said this morning in remarks to the Security Council’s briefing on the situation in the Middle East. ‘Time is running out,’ message at heart of Quartet report on conflictOn 1 July, the so-called Middle East Quartet – comprising the UN, Russia, the United States and the European Union – released the first-of–its-kind report, which analyzes the impediments to a lasting resolution to the conflict and offers recommendations on the way forward, urging Israel to stop its settlement policy and Palestine to end incitement to violence. In the report, the Quartet calls on each side to “independently demonstrate, through policies and actions, a genuine commitment to the two-state solution” and to “refrain from unilateral steps that prejudice the outcome of the final negotiations. The diplomatic partners reiterate that a negotiated two-state outcome is the only way to achieve an enduring peace that meets Israeli security needs and Palestinian aspirations for statehood and sovereignty, ends the occupation that began in 1967, and resolves all permanent status issues. In his remarks today, Mr. Ban recalled that during his visit to Israel and Palestine this past month, he carried a “clear and consistent” message to leaders on both sides that “time is running out,” a fact that he said is also at the heart of the Quartet’s report. Noting that some on both sides have criticized the report’s content and sought to dismiss its conclusions and recommendations, the UN chief emphasized that the report’s overriding message, however, is irrefutable: “As negative trends grow more frequent, the prospects of a two-state solution grow more distant,” he said. As such, the report’s 10 recommendations provide a practical approach to end the political stalemate, resume the transition to greater Palestinian Authority in the West Bank, and chart a course to negotiations to resolve all final status issues, the Secretary-General said. Mr. Ban also noted that French efforts to pursue peace complement the efforts being made by the Quartet envoys, and welcomed their coordination with the Quartet. In that regard, he also welcomed Egyptian efforts, including the recent visit by Egyptian Foreign Minister Sameh Shoukry to Palestine and Israel. UN chief cites leadership failures on both sides, shrinking space for civil societyTurning to the leaders of Israel and Palestine, the Secretary-General stressed that their failures to advance peace has created a vacuum, with extremist voices filling that space. In addition, recent incidents reinforce the mounting risks, and those responsible for recent terror attacks must be held accountable, he said. However, closures – such as those in Hebron – as well as punitive demolitions and blanket revocations of permits, penalize thousands of innocent Palestinians and amount to collective punishment, Mr. Ban said. Noting that he is “deeply troubled” by shrinking space for civil society in the region and around the world, the Secretary-General also expressed concerned over Israel’s passage of the so-called “NGO Transparency Law,” which he said contributes to a climate in which the activities of human rights organizations are increasingly delegitimized. Halamish, an Israeli settlement, stands in the northern West Bank, near the Palestinian village of Nabih Saleh. Photo: UNICEF/Mouhssine Ennaimi “All the while, Israel’s settlement enterprise marches on,” he said, highlighting that days after the Quartet called on Israel to cease settlement construction and expansion, Israel announced plans to advance building approximately 560 housing units in the West Bank and 240 more in occupied East Jerusalem. “This is in flagrant disregard of international law. These actions constitute an undeniable contradiction to Israel’s official support for a negotiated two-state solution,” he added, urging Israel to immediately cease and reverse such plans. Moreover, the Secretary-General said it is necessary to ask: “How can the systematic expansion of settlements […] the taking of land for exclusive Israeli use […] and the denial of Palestinian development be a response to violence?” He stressed that such policies will not bring the two-state solution closer to reality, nor will they make Israelis safer or more secure. “As many former Israeli military and intelligence officers have clearly stated, these policies will do precisely the opposite. Indeed, every brick added to the edifice of occupation is another taken from Israel’s foundation as a majority Jewish and democratic State,” the Secretary-General said. At the same time, Mr. Ban said, those Palestinians who “celebrate and encourage” attacks against innocents must know that they are not serving the interests of their people or peace. Such acts must be universally condemned and more must be done to counter the incitement that fuels and justifies terror, he stressed. Ongoing strife in GazaMr. Ban also noted that his visit to Israel and Palestine included his fourth trip to Gaza, where, despite significant progress, tens of thousands of people are still displaced following the 2014 conflict, families are forced to live without electricity for 12 to 18 hours per day, and unemployment remains staggering. Emphasizing that funds to rebuild Gaza remain elusive, the UN chief urged donors to fulfil their pledges made at the 2014 Cairo conference. A long-term stability and sustainability for Gaza depends on the lifting of the “crippling” closures and a re-establishment of a single, legitimate Palestinian governing authority based on Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO) principles. Turning to the Golan, the Secretary-General said that the situation remains volatile and continues to undermine the 1974 Disengagement of Forces Agreement between Israel and Syria, jeopardizing the ceasefire between the two countries. “As we focus on Israeli-Palestinian peace, we must take a hard look at where this conflict stands. How much longer can the parties and the international community accept political paralysis? And at what grave price?” the Secretary-General asked. Stressing that the international community, including through the recommendations outlined in the Quartet report, remains resolute in its commitment to support the goal of a peaceful future for both Palestinians and Israelis, the Secretary-General concluded his remarks by encouraging the Security Council to support the efforts of the Quartet to work with the parties, the region and interested stakeholders in advancing peace. read more

Spotify slapped with patent suit following US entry

first_imgThe patent trolls are at it again, and this time beloved music streaming service Spotify is the victim. Nearly immediately upon its entry into the US market, the company has been sued by PacketVideo, a subsidiary of Japanese wireless carrier NTT DoCoMo, for violation of patent 5,636,276, “Device for the distribution of music information in digital form.”The patent in question dates to 1995 and essentially describes the process of streaming music to a device over a communications network. A device connects to the network, which has a “databank of digitized music information” and retrieves music over an encrypted link. The music is then decrypted on the device, and the decrypted data is turned into the reproduced recorded sound. The patent also accounts for user authentication by including “authorization checking” in the decryption process. In 1995, this was novel, but mostly because few had the bandwidth to listen to streaming music, much less serve it up.AdChoices广告PacketVideo, the patent owner, was a hot investment in the tech bubble at the turn of the century. The San Diego-based company had over $100 million in funding, suggesting a valuation in the billions of dollars. While the company ultimately didn’t make a huge splash, DoCoMo uses PacketVideo’s technology on its Japanese handsets to connect them to devices back at home. DoCoMo acquired PacketVideo in 2010 for a fraction of its peak valuation. PacketVideo filed the patent suit in its home district court, the Southern District of California.It is worthy to mention that PacketVideo bought the patent rather than “invented” streaming music itself.Read more at TechdirtBlake’s OpinionWith an increasing frequency of seemingly frivolous patent suits filed in the realm of technology for purely financial gain, and increased reporting on those suits, it’s quickly becoming evident to everyday readers that the American treatment of patents is in need of reform. Spotify exemplifies this need.The company operated harmlessly for three years in Europe before crossing over the pond to the US. That’s a remarkable achievement in a space where music copyright holders have often fought tooth-and-nail using legal tactics to stop companies that might disrupt an industry formerly dominated by radio and retail sales.Yet, a mere two weeks after entering the United States, the company gets hit with a patent lawsuit by a company that uses a broadly worded patent as a financial asset. What’s more, PacketVideo isn’t even a competitor to Spotify.While Spotify is just one case, it is exemplary of the opportunism surrounding patent law in the United States. License fees paid out following patent infringement cases are innumerable and make all successful technology companies less efficient. If there were reforms to limit the power of patent trolls to extract revenue, the technology companies (including Spofity) who introduce innovation would have more cash on hand to do more research or create more jobs.last_img read more

WWE issues statement about the passing of Chyna Stephanie McMahon comments new

first_img Maveric April 21, 2016 at 11:25 am May 2, 2016 at 8:39 pm wow, nice try at offending me with the mean, hurtful, insensitive, rude comments, but just like every other keyboard warrior, your attempt has fallen flat. first, i don’t listen to marilyn manson (even though i have no problem with him, or his music), nor do i suffer from depression. finally, you should think before you speak (type, actually), because there actually are “good, rational human beings” that are “glad to see someone die”, and i happen to be one of them. my dad suffered from alzheimer’s disease for many years, and it was excrutiating for him, my mom, my brother, myself, and many others, so for us to finally get to the point where we were able to remove him from life support… it was a great relief. sure, it hurt to lose him, but i was glad, VERY glad, that all the physical, mental, and emotional, anguish was finally brought to an end. there are many other examples i could give as to how/why “good, rational human beings” are “glad to see someone die”, but why bother… you seem very firm in your belief(s), and shut out the possibility that others see things differently from you, which can only make me pity you. feel free to have the last word, for i have nothing more to say to you, expect that i hope, for your sake, and for the sake of those close to you, that your narrow-minded, unkind disposition, will one day be open to a more open, accepting perspective. WhatsApp April 22, 2016 at 4:39 pm U nailed it…all chyna wanted was to ask forgiveness of all the transgressions….and they spit on her face everytime she tries to make amends. damn.

And yet you tell ME to think about what I’m talking about.Chyna’s death was SUDDEN and ACCIDENTAL. She wasn’t an elderly woman with Alzheimer’s. She was a former body builder who fell from grace, made bad decisions, and died of an accidental overdose after mixing sleeping pills with anti-depressants. There was no life support. There was no one there around her as she passed in a heart-felt family moment that will be burned into the minds of the deceased’s loved ones. Chyna made the decision to get clean by whatever means necessary after a VERY messy fall from the WWE. She lost the man she loved (Triple H), lost her dream job, and ended up making horrible decisions that got her on the drugs in the first place. So she hit rock bottom HARD. So, yeah, excuse me for seeming “very firm” but don’t try to turn this into a mercy death. Your dad had your family. Chyna didn’t have anyone but her fans on the internet.

She’s the head of a major company that used to employ the now deceased. She has to be polite, and really, no matter how much of an annoyance and a psycho she was over the past year or more to Steph and HHH, Steph most likely feels bad and sorry that Chyna’s life went the way it did, and the death is still sad. In death, we usually try to remember the good things a person did, and not still hold grudges over past indiscretions. I’m sure Steph is a bigger person and would never stoop so low as to not say, at the very least, a few good words about her in her passing.

Your making it sound like Stephanie was a saint who didnt steal another womans man! Let me rephrase:Of course there are people that would be “happy” to see someone die. Those people are IDIOTS. You would sympathize if it was a country but then blast pure evil when it’s only one person. THOSE people are not the people I care about. I’m talking about people who are actually smart enough NOT to be an a-hole. Because THAT is a much better thing to live with on my conscience. Jason Jimerson WWE Chief Brand Officer Stephanie McMahon honored with 2019 Worldz Titan Award Alexa Bliss suffering from an illness, Stephanie McMahon challenges WWE Superstars This tweet is so plastic. If she and WWE really cared, they would have mended fences with her last year. Matter of fact, WWE should reach out and mend fences with all previously employed talent and work out any grievances before they pass away, instead of sending out tweets of sincerest condolences/homage for mere public relations after the fact. If business really is business, it would have been a great storyline to bring her back to somehow get involved in an angle with HHH/Stephanie McMahon.

Okay hold on. Let’s REALLY be honest here. No matter how someone lived their lives or talked to someone in-ring or behind the scenes, NO ONE is ever happy about someone dying. Chyna had demons. She had so many demons that she tried to silence them by doing porn. She pulled herself out of that life and tried to make something of herself. In the end, she lost that battle but she really started to fight back.Now take all that into account for anyone that really knew her. Hell, even X-Pac. They had a well-documented, dysfunctional relationship that spilled over to VH1’s Surreal Life. But even when Pac got clean, I bet he still felt like crap about her passing now.

But to say that good, rational human beings are glad to see someone die is a worse lie than you make yourself believe.Now go back to your meds. Her death, to me, is the most tragic IMHO. She tried time after to time to build bridges with Hunter, Steph, and the WWE in general but was shunned away every single time like she was a piece of shit because of her adult film career and her substance abuse. All she wanted was her recognition (which she deserved) but she was denied. Neither Hunter nor the WWE ever reached to her to try to get her help and she died alone because of it. Sadly, it took her death for the WWE and co. to finally recognize her accomplishments. The only thing that brings me peace about this is that Latino Heat is finally reunited in Heaven. RIP Chyna. Another childhood Icon of mine gone too soon. Google+ Fans on the internet that followed her a lot more than any of us did. Comments are closed.last_img read more

Lutherans help Washougal Community Center become a shelter

first_imgWhen a fire ripped through the Gorge last summer, Washougal sprang into action. The community center opened as an evacuation site and residents quickly pulled together emergency supplies. Fast-forward to winter, and the small city is preparing for the worst in a different way.Temperatures dropping below 30 degrees, or freezing rain or snow, would prompt the opening of an emergency severe-weather shelter at the Washougal Community Center.It’s the only severe-weather shelter among Clark County’s small cities, and it’s the only shelter in the county that uses a city-owned building.“Instead of waiting for it to become a problem, let’s be proactive,” said the Rev. Bob Barber, pastor at St. Matthew Lutheran Church.Just like the Archer Mountain Fire was a communitywide concern, Barber said, homelessness concerns the whole community. People experiencing homelessness are not outsiders and should be shown care and compassion, he said.Barber is also chair of Refuel Washougal, which puts on a free meal every Friday evening at the community center that draws about 65 people every week. He said many homeless people are already familiar with the community center because of Refuel and may be more willing to stay at a public building as opposed to a church. Refuel would supply and organize volunteers for the shelter. Many have already gone through volunteer training with the Council for the Homeless. Volunteer handbooks were recently finished.last_img read more

Scientists says data on Alzheimers drug shows continued effect

first_img Patients with mild Alzheimers disease who took Eli Lilly and Cos experimental drug solanezumab early in the course of their disease preserved more of their cognitive and functional ability, according to new Lilly data released on 22 July.Lilly presented new follow-up data from two large trials of the infused medicine on Wednesday at the Alzheimers Association International Conference (AAIC) in Washington.In people with Alzheimers disease one of the things that happens during the disease a normal protein called amyloid begins to accumulate in the brain. And the drugs that were presented this morning were all aimed at removing more amyloid from the brain. Many people in Alzheimers research believe if you lower amount of amyloid in Alzheimers brain you will moderate the course of the disease, said Alzheimers Association Chief Medical and Scientific Officer, William Thies.In 2012, the original 18-month studies of solanezumab, called Expedition and Expedition 2, each included about 1,000 patients with mild to moderate disease. The drug failed to slow cognitive declines or loss of abilities of daily living for the entire patient population.But when Lilly analysed results only for mild patients, the data suggested solanezumab caused a significant 34 percent slowdown in mental decline and an 18 percent slowdown in loss of functional abilities compared to placebo, researchers said.To better assess whether mildly impaired patients benefit from the drug, Lilly extended its two trials by another two years and only enrolled those with mild disease. Researchers continued to provide solanezumab to patients who had taken it during the studies and also allowed patients who had been given placebos to switch over to solanezumab.Lilly had previously reported that after the first six months of the extension study, patients who had taken solanezumab all along continued to show a greater benefit than those who switched to the drug later.Its important because it showed a continued effect of the drug, so the drugs arent transient, Thies said.Should solanezumab prove successful in that 2,100-patient study of patients with mild Alzheimers, within several years it could become the first approved drug to slow the course of the disease , Lilly officials said.

first_imgUnited NationsThe year 2019 started off at the United Nations with Somalia brazenly kicking out the UN envoy, followed soon after by Guatemala ditching an UN-sponsored anti-corruption commission.After a tough year that saw the United States, the UN’s top financial backer, cut funding, pull out of the Human Rights Council and scrap UN-backed agreements, the United Nations is taking more hard hits.Some UN watchers are questioning whether the global organization created at the end of World War II to safeguard world peace is facing a slow demise, increasingly under attack by governments with nationalist agendas.Nearing the half-way mark in his five-year tenure, UN chief Antonio Guterres has warned that multilateralism is under fire at a time when the world needs it most.Leading the anti-UN charge is President Donald Trump whose America-First approach to foreign policy has emboldened other governments to thumb their noses at the United Nations, analysts say.”The UN is having a nerve-wracking start to 2019,” said Richard Gowan, senior policy fellow at UN University.While the United Nations may not be on the brink of total collapse, “the Trump administration’s attitude encourages others to defy the UN,” he said.On Monday, the new envoy for Syria, Geir Petersen of Norway, took up his post as the UN’s fourth peace broker, but the United Nations has been sidelined by Russia and Iran in its efforts to end nearly eight years of war.Peacekeeping — at the heart of the UN’s security approach — is under serious financial strain after the United States announced plans in late December to further cut back its budget contribution.Meanwhile, the Security Council is divided over how to respond to the elections in the Democratic Republic of Congo.Both Somalia and Guatemala have cited UN interference to justify their decisions.UN envoy to Somalia Nicholas Haysom was declared persona non grata last week after he questioned the Mogadishu government’s decision to arrest an Al-Shabaab defector who ran for election.Guatemala announced it was unilaterally ending the mandate of a UN-backed anti-corruption commission that had been looking into President Jimmy Morales’ election campaign finances.- US abandons UN -Jeffrey Feltman, the UN’s former political chief who stepped down last year, worries that the United States and European powers no longer have the UN’s back when disagreements like those with Guatemala or Somalia arise.”What concerns me is that there no longer seems to be effective push-back against such decisions,” said Feltman, now a fellow at the Brookings Institution.Member states who would normally be expected to defend the principles have “abandoned traditional positions,” he said, citing the United States, or been consumed with political turmoil such as Britain with Brexit and EU countries with populism.”The UN secretariat, fearful of losing essential member state support, will not speak out forcefully, in the absence of sufficient member state backing,” he added.A potential bright spot is Yemen, where the United Nations has succeeded in bringing the warring sides to the table for negotiations on ending a horrific war — but UN diplomats caution that peace process is fragile.”The UN is being tested like perhaps never before,” said Louis Charbonneau, UN director for Human Rights Watch, who argues that stronger UN leadership is needed to help the world body survive this difficult moment.”The secretary-general should use his bully pulpit to call out abusers by name, no matter how powerful. We need him to be more of a general than a secretary.”Faced with setbacks, Guterres counters that people continue to see the UN as the best platform to address global problems, such as climate change.A major UN climate summit planned for September is shaping up as a key test of the UN’s relevance.last_img read more

VIDEO Julian Edelman made the greatest catch in Patriots history

first_img Kids in New England will be re-creating this catch in their back yards for the foreseeable future. As they should. They don’t get any bigger or better than this grab.Julian Edelman makes miracle shoe catch #SuperBowl #Patriots #NFL pic.twitter.com/ar4VIvHvMi— Jose Víctor Morán (@josevictormoran) February 6, 2017 Patriots fans will never forget the heartbreak of David Tyree’s impossible, ball-pinned-to-the-helmet catch from Super Bowl 42. The catch helped lead the Giants to the upset of the undefeated pants, and threw cold water on a season of destiny in New England.Last night, Julian Edelman helped erase the Tyree memories by making his own spectacular catch at the most pressure packed moment in football’s biggest game.With just over 2 minutes remaining in the fourth quarter, with the Pats trailing by 8, and New England at their own 35, Edelman managed to secure a tipped Tom Brady pass as he was draped by three Atlanta defenders.The play was confirmed on the replay, and the Patriots scored and and converted the game-tying two-point conversion to send the game to overtime. By the time the Patriots won the coin toss in overtime, the cake was already baked for their fifth championship. Advertisementlast_img read more

If You Love Doing Something Chances Are That Other People Do Too

first_img Growing a business sometimes requires thinking outside the box. 4 min read Opinions expressed by Entrepreneur contributors are their own. Register Now » Free Webinar | Sept. 9: The Entrepreneur’s Playbook for Going Global August 11, 2019 Jenn Nicken was working as a marketing executive at Apple when she became so inspired by the cooking classes she was taking that she decided to launch a company, The Chef and the Dish, that offers live cooking classes over Skype from renowned international chefs.Alexandra Kenin has a somewhat similar story. She became hooked on urban hiking after moving to San Francisco to work at Google. She ended up starting her own business leading like-minded hikers on urban excursions around the city, called San Francisco Urban Hikers. What these women have in common isn’t just that they both moved from great tech jobs to careers in entrepreneurship. It’s also that they tapped into the same trend – a growing market-demand for experiences.The ‘experience economy’ is boomingAccording to McKinsey, experiential spending is growing four times faster than expenditures on goods, and millennials are leading the way, spending more, on average, than previous generations on things like entertainment, events and gym memberships. This may be a product of changing values, economics and probably also has something to do with the impact of social media. Related: Delivering Remarkable Experiences Is How You Win More CustomersGlenn Fogel, president and CEO of Booking Holdings, parent company of experiential businesses including Kayak, OpenTable and Booking.com, thinks so. At a recent panel on the topic, he attributed his companies’ success to “people taking photos.”But it shouldn’t just be major travel sites and big tech players riding the wave of experience. If they’re doing it, so should upstart entrepreneurs, who have greater access to online audiences than ever before, thanks to a digitally-leveled playing field. Wix and others offer cost-effective, scalable tools that allow small businesses owners to set up shop and compete online. Business functionality wrapped in professional quality and engaging aesthetics provide the perfect platform for creative ideas to blossom into full-fledged companies. Whether entrepreneurs are selling physical goods, tutorials or activities, many of them are finding that marketing experiences is a driver for success. Related: Use Tradition and Ritual to Thrive In the Experience EconomyThey may even have a chance to outdo larger businesses in this area. A recent Gartner survey drew connections between the so-called “experience economy” and the rising importance of customer experience in general. It found that, while most corporate marketers believe their companies need to compete primarily on the basis of customer experience, only about one in five said the experience they offer exceeds customer expectations. This is an opportunity for entrepreneurs to build businesses around unique experiences and the idea that they can help customers create memories.  The power of emotionsBack in 1998, Joseph Pine and James Gilmore predicted the rise of an experiential economy, owing to the idea that “experiences are inherently personal, existing only in the mind of an individual who has been engaged on an emotional, physical, intellectual, or even spiritual level” in the Harvard Business Review. The spiritual or emotional experience can be the basis of an experiential business. That was the case for Matt Gardner, who traveled to Nepal, worked for a water sanitation NGO and ended up running Hearts and Tears Motorcycle Club along with his partner Jo Pytel. Their club offers guided tours that deliver unforgettable tours and views from the seat of vintage motorcycles. Like Jenn, Alexandra, and so many others, this entrepreneurial journey began with memorable experiences that in the process of sharing with others grew into a business. The key to the company’s success is that it invites people to participate in an experience, an adventure, that becomes a deeply personal customer journey — and yet again is shared with others, who hopefully one day will take the ride on their own.Related: How Escape Rooms Became an Experiential JuggernautIn the new experience economy, this is a great way to think about starting a business. Even if your business is something more traditional than motorcycle rides, it can be a helpful exercise to think about how you can invite people to participate in an experience — and the ability to share it with the world — rather than simply selling them yet another thing.last_img read more

Unity has launched the Obstacle Tower Challenge to test AI game players

first_imgUnity has announced a video game challenge, the Obstacle tower challenge which will test the vision, control, planning, and generalization capabilities of AI software. The Obstacle Tower Challenge will use a game-like environment of platform-style gameplay with puzzles and planning problems inside a tower setting maneuvering almost 100 floors. The challenge will examine how an AI software performs in computer vision, locomotion skills, and high-level planning. The challenge will begin on Monday, February 11 and will run through Friday, May 24. As the challenge opens, participants can review all the rules and regulations, download the Starter Kit and begin training their agents. Round 1, which will run from February 11 to March 31, will have participants playing up to Floor 25 of the Obstacle Tower. The winners will proceed to round 2 which will have 100 floors, post which the winners will be announced June 14. The participants will have the opportunity to win prizes in the form of cash, travel vouchers, and Google Cloud Platform credits, valued at over $100,000. “Each of the Tower floors are procedurally-generated, which means an AI agent must not only be able to solve a single version of the Tower but any arbitrary version as well. In this way, we’re testing the generalization ability of agents, a key capability that has not often been analyzed by benchmarks in the past.” said Danny Lange, Vice President of AI and Machine Learning, Unity Technologies. The end goal of this challenge is to bring up new AI research and solve new problems in reinforcement learning.” AI has been making great progress in conquering high-profile games. Recently, Google DeepMind’s AI AlphaStar defeated StarCraft II pros TLO and MaNa and won 10-1 against the gamers.
