UPS to Help Birkenstock Shorten Order Time, Increase U.S. Product Offering

first_imgBirkenstock Footprint Sandals Inc., the 100 percent employee-owned company and U.S. importer and distributor of Birkenstock footwear from Germany, will shorten special-order handling time by weeks and increase its product offering in U.S. retail stores through an agreement with UPS Supply Chain Solutions.A new distribution program developed by UPS will manage special orders to the U.S. fulfilled by Birkenstock manufacturing centers in Germany. Special orders that once took months to ship to the U.S. now will take days.“UPS Supply Chain Solutions will help us bring additional new styles, colors and sizes of Birkenstock footwear to American consumers much faster than we have been able to do in the past,” said Birkenstock Chief Operating Officer Gene Kunde.Under the agreement, implemented this month, UPS Supply Chain Solutions will provide a dedicated team utilizing UPS’s full portfolio of services including air, ocean, customs brokerage and small package. The solutions allow shipments to go directly to retail outlets. This alleviates interim handling and repackaging steps typical of the retail distribution process. UPS also will deliver retailer orders for the Spring 2004 season beginning this fall.“While our main goal is to satisfy our customers, there also are significant operational benefits to this new distribution arrangement,” Kunde said. “The UPS program takes pressure off our U.S. warehouses and gives our retailers more options for consumers.”Birkenstock, the first company to introduce the U.S. market to the Euro-comfort shoe category in 1967, realized 20 percent growth in fiscal 2002, exceeding the industry average of six percent. The agreement with UPS Supply Chain Solutions will enable Birkenstock to keep pace with rapid growth while increasing its ability to respond to its retailers and consumer needs.last_img read more

EPL: Liverpool fan holds title parade after getting bored waiting for restart

first_imgA Liverpool fan has taken matters into his own hands and held an open-top title parade to celebrate their very likely Premier League glory. The three trucks cost 10 million baht, which is around £256,000. When asked about the parade, Kongkiat explained he had planned the celebrations for when Liverpool physically lifted the title. “I had planned to bring the trucks out for a parade with the other Liverpool supporters when the team lifted the trophy,” Kongkia stated per The Mirror. “However, due to the pandemic the league has been postponed so I decided to do the celebration in advance.

Coronavirus tests will be carried out twice per week on players, in addition to temperature checks and questionnaires being filled out prior to every session. FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail分享 Loading… Jurgen Klopp’s side are 25 points clear at the top of the table and were on track to claim their first ever Premier League title – until the coronavirus pandemic postponed the season. The Premier League hasn’t held a game since March and businessman Kongkiat Inthraseesangwon decided he couldn’t wait for the return any longer. Kongkiat purchased a truck for the open-top parade in Phayao, Thailand and painted it red to match the club’s traditional colours, while also slapping on the club’s crest and ‘You’ll Never Walk Alone’ motto. “I think the money has been well spent because if we win, it will be the first time in more than 30 years that we have won the league. I think the fans deserve to have their celebration. “Moreover, after the celebration, the truck will be used in my business so it’s definitely not a waste of money.” The Premier League is looking to return to action in mid-June with sides resuming training in the coming weeks. It was revealed yesterday that six people across three Premier League sides had tested positive for COVID-19. 19 clubs have completed tests and received results, while one club waited until Monday to conduct their tests and so their results are currently unknown.

HEALTH: BETTER BODIES CHALLENGE REACHES NEW HEIGHTS

first_imgIt was a training session with a difference when Donegal Daily’s Health and Fitness columnist Emmet Rushe met with his Better Bodies challengers at the weekend.Little did they know that by 11am on Saturday morning, they’d be taking selfies at the top of Mount Errigal.The two Better Bodies groups, who train three evenings or three mornings each week, were challenged to join the Personal Trainer in climbing Mt Errigal on Saturday morning. Although a few were nervous at the thought, 36 Better Bodies Challengers joined in the climb.Emmet encouraged and supported the Challengers all the way to the summit with some overcoming nerves and a fear of heights.Emmet, of Rushe Fitness, said: “There was laughter, there was pain and there were tears of disbelief and of course there were many, many photographs and selfies taken.“The group members have made the decision to better themselves, their lifestyle and their health. For some, the aim and motivation is weight loss; for others, it’s fitness. “Everyone is on their own journey to achieve their Better Body and I thought that this challenge would show each of them just what you can achieve with the right motivation and support.“To see both groups helping and encouraging each other yesterday, reminded me why I love my job. It was such an achievement for every single one of us.”What’s next for the Better Bodies challengers?“There are 3 weeks left for this course of the Better Bodies,” said Emmet. “We’ll be culminating this session with the Ultimate Survivor Series Mud-run on November 1st at The Old Foundry, Letterkenny.”The next Better Bodies challenges will begin on Monday November 3rd and Emmet has similar challenges planned.

Lauren Beukes gets her own comic book series at DC’s Vertigo Comics

first_imgSouth African author Lauren Beukes, together with longtime collaborator Joey HiFi, brings her unique literary style to the world of comics with the Survivors’ Club series for renowned graphic novel publisher Vertigo Comics. Author Lauren Beukes unlocks supernatural atmospherics with her new graphic novel series for Vertigo Comics. (Image: Lauren Beukes)• South African author Ivan Vladislavić wins Yale’s Windham-Campbell prize for fiction• Author, 16, is SA’s youngest • Beukes has a head for hoarding • South Africans making it big abroad • Local author gets top sci-fi award CD AndersonAnnounced last week at the San Diego Comic Convention – alongside several new and established DC releases – the monthly series, titled Survivors’ Club, is a collaboration between Beukes and award-winning illustrator and designer, Dale Halvorsen (aka Joey HiFi), and offers an interesting postmodern take on the horror genre using the vivid graphic novel template.This new chapter for Beukes will undoubtedly win her new fans and strengthen her reputation as one of the most important voices in speculative and horror fiction, following the critical success of her novels The Shining Girls and Broken Monsters.Beukes’ quirky yet literate style has been hailed as a fresh new take for the genre, prompting Stephen King himself to declare Broken Monsters as “scary as hell and hypnotic”. Her second novel Zoo City won the prestigious Arthur C Clarke literary prize for innovative science fiction in 2011.Cape Town-based Halvorsen has been an integral part of the Lauren Beukes literary identity, having designed the distinctive covers for all her books, as well contributing illustrations to other high-profile fiction, including works by Chuck Wendig and Richard De Nooy. Their collaborative spirit continues with the creation of the Survivors’ Club comic series.Survivors’ Club is not Beukes’ first foray into graphic novels, having worked on a number of Vertigo anthologies over the last five years, as well contributing to DC’s popular Wonder Woman series with an original story titled The Problem With Cats. Author Lauren Beukes mixes up the world of superheroes with a unique South African story in her Wonder Woman comic The Problem With Cats. (Image: DC Comics)The Problem With Cats follows two parallel stories: a Wonder Woman adventure in Mozambique and a story of two sisters in Orlando West who, through the power of imagination and love of cats, discover their own heroism. Set against a vibrant Mzansi backdrop with fun, quirky references to local pop culture, the story was an opportunity for Beukes to give the world a look at modern South African society. “What if the 80s horror movies were real? And where are those kids today?” Lauren Beukes and Joey HiFi explore the possiblities in Survivors’ Club. (Image: Vertigo Comics) Survivors’ Club, though, is a little different, filled with darker subject matter, featuring a writing style more similar to the supernatural atmospherics of Beukes’ books. As she explains in a recent post on her website, the idea for Survivor’s Club is a simple, but effective one: “What if the 80s horror movies were real? And where are those kids today?”According to Vertigo, the stories and characters of Survivors’ Club subtly subvert the usual horror fiction tropes, twisting them into something stranger and more curious. It’s also a chance for Beukes and Halvorsen to live out the ultimate pop culture fan’s fantasy, using their “encyclopedic horror movie knowledge” to add to the canon, while creating an entirely new mythology.The series will be released in print and for digital in October 2015.last_img read more

Yammer Adds Microblogging to Microsoft Outlook & Windows Mobile

first_imgYammer is a “Twitter for the enterprise” platform that (to our dismay) won TechCrunch50 last year. A year later the enterprise microblogging space is growing rapidly and Yammer is still moving forward, along with competitors like Socialcast and Socialtext Signals. Today Yammer has announced a pair of Microsoft-centric additions that should be big for business users: an Outlook plug-in and a Windows Mobile app. Outlook is still huge in the enterprise, and a decent working integration with it should be an easier sell than any other kind of desktop access. Any enterprise microblogging and messaging apps worth their salt have some kind of desktop app by this point. Most of them, including Yammer, have started out with Adobe AIR. The big advantage with AIR is that it’s cross-platform. But getting users to start using yet another app on their already cluttered desktop isn’t always successful. With the Outlook plug-in, an extra pane is added alongside the other aspects to Outlook. Users can then message and reply to colleagues, upload attachments, and do basically everything that the AIR app does.The fundamental difference is that the plug-in takes microblogging to where many enterprise users are already spending a lot of their time. A prime example is how users will be able to CC an email to either their whole Yammer network or to a specific group. As for the other app, Windows Mobile may not be quite as vital as Outlook but it still has a robust presence in the enterprise mobile market. One of the persistent dilemmmas with standalone apps like Yammer is that (even with desktop and mobile apps) it is never easy to include it in preexisting workflows. It’s always harder to sell an enterprise app that doesn’t play nice with systems already in place. Integrating Yammer with two Microsoft products that continue to hold mind share in the enterprise world is a step towards solving this problem.

Add Beautiful Light to Your Scenes With a China Ball

first_imgChina balls are one of the cheapest and most effective ways to add beautiful light to your scenes. Here are just three of the many ways you can use them on set.Top image from Leafhouse FilmsThe china ball is one of my favorite tools to work with on set. The quality of light from a china ball can be absolutely beautiful; it’s very soft, forgiving, and can really wrap around your talent’s face. That said, to make the most out of china balls means that you’ll need to know each and every way you can use them. Below are just three examples of the most effective ways to utilize them.1. Ambient Room LightingImage from The Kreen of the CropInterior scenes will often call for the base light level in a room to get brought up. Say for instance you’re working with a nice three point lighting setup on your actor, but the lights aren’t spilling into your background enough, and the ambient level of the room is too low. By placing a china ball or two up high near the ceiling, you can easily brighten the room without having to further soften the light. This is a very fast and foolproof way to add ambience without eating up more time on set.2. Softbox-styleImage from No Film SchoolIf you don’t have a softbox on set and there’s no time to set up c-stands, flags, and silks to diffuse your standard film lights, china balls are an excellent alternative. The light quality from a china ball is nearly identical to that of a high-quality softbox and requires very little set-up time. You’ll usually want to clip some black duvetyne to the back of the china ball to avoid having it spill all over the room. This will allow you to hit just the talent’s face with light (much like a sofbox would), effectively keeping the background light levels in check.3. On a Boom PoleImage from Comet Tale ProductionsOne of the most difficult types of setups to light (especially if you’re on a budget) is a long tracking shot. Tracking shots float through various spaces on your set, which means you need to light a much bigger area — unless, of course, you’re using a china ball.An excellent alternative to rigging up countless lights across your set is to simply put the china ball on a boom pole and have a crew member walk with it. Doing this will allow your actors to move freely throughout the set, and can save you precious time while still delivering beautiful results.Obviously this list is just the tip of the china ball iceberg. Here’s a little bonus video from Film Riot where Ryan Connolly teaches you how to build a china ball/dimmer switch combo.Ever used a china ball on set? Got any footage to share?

20 days agoDyche hails Burnley players and staff as they reach fourth

first_imgAbout the authorPaul VegasShare the loveHave your say Dyche hails Burnley players and staff as they reach fourthby Paul Vegas20 days agoSend to a friendShare the loveBurnley boss Sean Dyche hailed his players and staff as Jeff Hendrick’s winner sent them fourth in the Premier League.A set play from the training ground worked a treat as Hendrick, back in his favoured central midfield role, smashed home a deep Ashley Westwood corner at the far post to win a tight Turf Moor tussle against the 10-man Toffees.Seamus Coleman saw red for the visitors early in the second half following a barge on Dwight McNeil, which followed an accidental, but reckless first half challenge that ultimately forced Erik Pieters out of the game.“I don’t get too carried away with league table. I’m more interested in the one at the end of the season,” laughed Dyche.“Don’t get me wrong, it’s to be enjoyed for Burnley Football Club and the fans, but for me it’s about focusing on every game and on where we are at the end of the season.“But within that, there are still moments to be enjoyed and you take in these performances and where we are now, compared to a year ago.“We are in a good place because the players have earned the right. They have come back with a real edge to them and I’ll remind you, I was just as proud of them this time last season, when we didn’t have as many points behind us.”Dyche, who celebrates seven years at Turf Moor later this month, added: “One of my many obsessions is finding different ways to win and today was a really tight, tough game.“They are a really good side and I know they’ve had a tough run, but they have quality all over the pitch.“But I thought we contained them well and the red card probably changes the feel of it.” last_img read more

Defamation Act Passed in the House of Representatives

first_imgStory Highlights A key feature of the Bill is the abolition of the distinction between libel and slander. The amended Defamation Act 2013, which seeks to replace the decades-old slander and libel laws, was passed in the House of Representatives on November 5 with bi-partisan support.According to Attorney General, Hon. Patrick Atkinson, who led the debate, a key feature of the Bill is the abolition of the distinction between libel and slander and the establishment of a single cause of action to be known as defamation.It also seeks to abolish the law related to criminal libel and to institute a legal limit of two years within which a lawsuit for defamation can be filed instead of the previous six years.Additionally, the Bill introduces provision for the media not being liable, if it innocently disseminates information from a reputable source, and also replaces the defence of justification with the defence of truth.It also provides provisions for the resolution of disputes without court proceedings, as well as modification for the defence of fair comment.In giving support to the Act, Opposition Spokesperson on National Security and Justice, Delroy Chuck said “there is very little disagreement with the provisions of the Bill”.He noted that the Opposition is in “full support” of the Bill, as it seeks  to remove a historical legacy of criminal libel, where persons could have been charged for making “outrageous” comments.“It has also made it very clear that once a publication is truthful and fair or if it is qualified in certain circumstances that you (the media) have freedom of expression,” he said.Jamaica previously operated with a Libel and Slander Act, which was passed in 1851, and the Defamation Act, which was passed in 1961.The legislation was passed in the Upper House in July. The Bill introduces provision for the media not being liable. The amended Defamation Act 2013 seeks to replace the decades-old slander and libel laws.last_img read more

Indian mens hockey team beats Kiwis 50

first_imgTokyo: The Indian men’s hockey team won the Olympic Test event here on Wednesday, beating New Zealand 5-0 to avenge the loss it endured in their round robin clash.

But we had been having practice sessions after that and worked on our mistakes to win today,” he added. Both teams began the match on a cautious note by turning over the ball in the mid-field. India won a penalty corner in the seventh minute, but couldn’t capitalise on the opportunity.

He executed a perfect dragflick to put India in the lead. The Indian team continued to hold possession and put tremendous pressure on the New Zealand defense as they ended the first quarter at 1-0. Shamsher scored India’s second goal through a penalty corner in the 18th minute. New Zealand managed to make only two circle entries in the second quarter as the Indian team scored three more goals. Nilakanta found the back of the net in the 22nd minute before Gursahibjit and Mandeep scored in quick succession. Vivek Prasad intercepted the ball brilliantly to assist a goal for Gursahibjit and Mandeep converted a penalty corner just before the half-time whistle. After an action-packed first half, the intensity dropped from both sides. New Zealand tried to make a few inroads in the third quarter as they took a shot in the 37th minute which went wide of the post. Jarmanpreet Singh saved a penalty corner in the next minute as India and New Zealand played out a goalless quarter but the former held the lead at 5-0. In the last quarter, India ensured they stayed in the lead and didn’t allow New Zealand to break through their defense throughout the match. India’s attacking approach in the match paid off as they walked off the pitch as winners of the competition.last_img read more
