It has also sought an order from the court declaring that the Centre “may set two-child norm, as a criteria for government jobs, aids and subsidies, and, may withdraw statutory rights viz. right to vote, right to contest, right to property, right to free shelter, right to free legal aid”, for not complying with it.
Kiefer Sutherland is set to release his sophomore studio album Reckless & Me via BMG Records on April 26. The actor/musician has shared a video for the record’s second single, “This Is How It’s Done.”“I asked myself, ‘what is the thing that I love about acting, and music?’,” shared Sutherland. “‘What is the common denominator?’ For me it’s storytelling and music is a very different way of doing it.” The 10-track country-rock LP was produced by Jude Cole. Sutherland is set to announce a U.S. tour in support of Reckless & Me in the coming weeks.Check out the video for “This Is How It’s Done,” which features tour footage of Sutherland and his band shot both on and off-stage below: Advertisement Advertisement Login/Register With: By Jeffrey Greenblatt | JamBase Kiefer Sutherland Advertisement LEAVE A REPLY Cancel replyLog in to leave a comment Facebook Twitter
WINNIPEG – The former board chairman of Manitoba Hydro criticized Premier Brian Pallister on Thursday and defended a planned $67-million payment to the Manitoba Metis Federation.“What we need is a strong board, and we need a premier who’s prepared to take leadership in addressing some very significant issues that Hydro faces,” Sanford Riley told The Canadian Press.Riley and eight of the other nine board members at the Crown corporation quit en masse Wednesday. They said they had been unable to secure a meeting with Pallister for more than a year to discuss key issues.Pallister said the dispute stems from a proposal submitted by the board last fall to pay the Metis federation $67 million over 20 years in relation to new Hydro developments.The planned payment was unusual, Pallister said, because it did not appear to compensate anyone for lost land or displacement. Instead, the money would have been in exchange for a federation promise not to oppose several projects, including a new transmission line to the United States, the premier said.The government halted the deal, partly to protect taxpayers from having to pay “persuasion money” and partly to protect the rights of future generations of Metis to seek regulatory reviews or question future projects.“I don’t think … that signing off on your rights, at the expense of your children, is the right thing to do,” Pallister said.A copy of the proposed deal, obtained by The Canadian Press, said the Metis federation would not oppose projects currently underway as well as future domestic transmission lines, less than 250 kilometres in length, for up to 50 years.The proposal said the federation would have to support Manitoba Hydro licence applications and “agree not to appeal or contest any approvals or licences issued.”Riley said the proposal made sense in light of recent court rulings that have supported Metis rights. In 2016, the Supreme Court of Canada ruled the country’s 600,000 Metis have many of the same rights as First Nations individuals, including the right to be consulted.Riley said the payment could be lower than the cost of legal challenges and compensation for upcoming Manitoba Hydro projects.“This made more sense from a financial and from a social perspective.”He called Pallister’s criticism “deeply cynical, offensive to the board … and wrong.”While there is no mention of lost land in the proposed deal, Metis federation president David Chartrand said the money was partly to compensate for land cleared for hydro poles.“There was clear-cutting that was done in traditional areas that were used for cultural events or berry-picking,” Chartrand said earlier this week.“We have some very famous areas where we pick our blueberries … and so it (would have) helped to develop new blueberry areas.”Riley and some other board members have Progressive Conservative connections and were appointed by the Tory government less than two years ago.Riley has served in advisory and support roles over the years for former Tory leaders. He is also a successful business executive. He said this dispute is not about partisan politics.“I’m not interested in the partisan stuff that goes on around this. I’m interested in doing the right thing for Manitoba.”Pallister said a new board would be appointed Friday.

Tunisia – “Le Monde” and several international media sources revealed on February 8 data that was uncovered in an investigation called “SwissLeaks.” The result is more than 203 billion USD in tax evasion aided and abetted by HSBC.The bank promised its customers to do its best to reduce “the impact of media intrusion into their private lives”. The SwissLeaks case has not only revealed the bank scandal, but has also reignited the debate over media reactions.HSBC reacts The true face of HSBC Bank in Geneva, Switzerland was unveiled by French newspaper “Le Monde” yesterday, which shared with 50 other media publications — including Germany’s “Süddeutsche Zeitung” and “The Guardian”— the bank’s data base of 100,000 customers and 20,000 offshore companies.The investigation, which is primarily based on information contained in the database, was conducted by 154 journalists with the help of a computer expert and former employee of HSBC bank in Geneva, Hervé Falciani. The data covers the period from November 9, 2006, to March 31, 2007, during which Falciani worked for the bank.HSBC claims that the data base was manipulated. “It is unclear if the integrity of the data has been preserved, or even if the original data itself was complete and accurate. Recent allegations by a French law enforcement official in Nice suggest that the data has been manipulated and could therefore contain material inaccuracies,” states the Bank in its communiqué questioning the methods used in the investigation.HSBC also questions the results of the investigation and the problem of verifying sources credibility. “Over a period of several months at the end of 2006 and early 2007, an IT employee of the SwissPrivate Bank, Hervé Falciani (HF), systematically and deliberately downloaded details of clients accounts. This was a blatant criminal violation of Swiss law. HF is accused of attempting to sell the data of Lebanese banks under a false name, as the Swiss Attorney General made clear in a press release on 11.12.2014,” states the Bank.Other media actWhile some media publications have reported the facts as they occurred without giving any importance to the names, others have merely been interested in the names of famous personalities involved, as if that were the real debate that should change the world. But even if the bank is dissembling, as the investigators claim, then whether the money is of politicians, business people, or show-biz stars should not be the focus of attention.These publications’ search for “the scoop” does not actually sit well with the ethics of journalism. Some media noted the example of Gad Elmaleh, a client of HSBC, and others even mocked the humorist on media and social networks, making a parody of the advertisement “I dream of an ideal bank (HSBC not LCL)”, accusing him of tax fraud and claiming that he is a “bad example” for new generations.Elmaleh’s lawyer said to Le Monde that the file has already been regularized. “No need to make a scandal for nothing, they have regularized their situations, go to other things!!”, said Eddie Suissa, a very active Moroccan, on Facebook, criticizing the media.Internet users, also eager to discover the whole list, have wondered why the newspaper Le Monde did not reveal the entire list of account holders at the bank and on what basis it chose the list that it did publish.The Swiss have on their accounts 31 billion USD. Israel is among the countries that were also directly involved in the investigation. Between 1988 and 2007, approximately 6,500 Israelis have held more than 10 billion USD at the bank. Between 2006 and 2007, Le Monde found that 13.4 billion USD belonged to 7,765 African customers. In France, the Court of Auditors estimated that the average tax evasion amounts each year was between 70 and 90 billion USD.“All this noise makes me laugh. This is a storm in a teacup. Swiss banks have existed for centuries. How could they have existed without customers? Only the media (and many customers) are not apparently aware of the existence of these Swiss accounts”, added Suissa.HSBC, which is headquartered in London, is a British international banking group that was created in 1865 in Hong Kong and operates today in 84 countries with more than 60 million customers. But does this existence justify tax fraud? Joseph Marciano, a Moroccan tax system developer in Israel, commented about the issue in an article in The Times of Israel: “I developed a tax system that allows to triple the revenues for each state, abolishing all taxes and fees known today. This is because the tax systems in the world are archaic and primitive”.“Now all the tax systems of the world are not controllable. The proof are the leaks and the fact that over 30% of the global economy is driven by parallel steps (drugs, weapons, casinos, black market oil and raw materials, etc.)”, explained the tax system developer.Not all the account holders in HSBC are concerned. Gérard Horny, a journalist specialized in economic and financial issues wrote an article for Slate.fr in which he indirectly established a link between action and intention. In the beginning, most media discussed the case of Gad El Maleh who has no particular duty to the public and forgot the example of French minister Eric Woerth. In August 2009, Woerth released, as he was a Minister of Budget, a list of 3,000 taxpayers who were “account holders in Swiss banks”, now Wikileaks has cost him his job. “We can forgive a person, not a minister who was publicly launched against tax evasion”, says Gérard Horny.SwissLeaks has included a new priority on the new agenda of the international media: a debate on tax evasion. When can we talk about tax evasion? Are all the clients involved? What about regularized situations? When does the private life meet with the public interest? What does tax evasion mean now? These are some questions people should be aware of.Instead of discussing the famous people involved, the media should be discussing ideas and solutions. So SwissLeaks and MediaWeaks are two sides of the same coin, and both must be dealt with.The views expressed in this article are the author’s own and do not necessarily reflect Morocco World News’ editorial policy© Morocco World News.

By Ahlam Ben SagaRabat – How to win back Moroccan brains? A recent study by Moroccan job portal ReKrute reveals how the brain drain phenomenon affects Morocco.According to ReKrute, 91 percent of Moroccan professionals aged 35 and below as tempted to work abroad, in search of better work conditions and quality of life, which includes health care and comfort. The study suggests that motivations vary on an individual basis, as many Moroccan companies fall short of employee expectations and do not put strong efforts into winning back the qualified people who have left for other countries.Young, well-trained Moroccan individuals set their sights on western countries, such as Canada, which attracts 37 percent of Moroccan professionals, making it the hottest destination, not only for Moroccans but for many citizens of the world, ReKrute emphasized.While thousands of high-qualified Moroccans look forward to emigrating to developed countries, 74 percent of Moroccans have already spent several years in foreign countries hope to go back to Morocco to put their talents and expertise to use in the kingdom. However, even these Moroccans hesitate before returning home, due to the unstable or less-stimulating work atmospheres.It is worth mentioning that a previous report issued by Moroccan outlet Medias24, indicates that Moroccan physicians and doctors, in particular, experience tough working conditions domestically–underpaid and under-equipped–which prompts them to emigrate.“After ten years of study, we are sent to faraway regions for miserable salaries and deplorable working conditions,” one Moroccan doctor stated. Facing such prospects, Moroccan medical professionals are increasingly choosing to remain abroad, rather than address the nation’s dire need for medical services.
A man has been remanded in custody after being charged with the murder of a Sri Lankan woman at Hoppers Crossing, in outer Melbourne in Australia, ABC news in Australia reported today.Prasad Somawansa, 48, was alone in the family’s Barber Drive home when her husband became concerned that he had not been able to contact her by telephone for hours. Police said the family had moved to Australia from Sri Lanka in 1999.The house had not been ransacked, but police said it was too early to say if anything had been stolen. A friend went to the house on Thursday and found the front door open and Ms Somawansa’s body was discovered inside. Sigaragh Baea, 21, from Lara, has appeared in court and will be held in custody until his next court appearance on Tuesday.
SEATTLE — Federal prosecutors say a woman charged in a massive data breach at Capital One may have hacked more than 30 other organizations.Paige Thompson, of Seattle, was arrested last month after the FBI said she obtained personal information from more than 100 million Capital One credit applications. There is no evidence the data was sold or distributed to others.In a memorandum filed ahead of a court hearing Thursday, the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Seattle said servers found in Thompson’s bedroom contained data stolen from more than 30 unnamed companies, educational institutions and other entities.Prosecutors said much of that data did not appear to contain personal identifying information. Investigators are still working to identify the affected organizations.Thompson’s attorney did not immediately respond to an email seeking comment Wednesday.The Associated Press
The Council added 38-year-old Shamil Basayev, also known as Abdullakh Shamil Abu-Idris, to its consolidated list last Tuesday. Mr. Basayev was born in the Chechen village of Dyshni-Vedeno and currently holds a Russian passport.The UN sanctions require countries to freeze financial resources, including funds derived or generated by any undertaking owned or controlled by the Taliban, and to ensure that they are not used by the group.States are also obliged to freeze funds and other financial assets of Usama bin Laden and his associates in the Al-Qaida organization, and to prevent their entry or transit through the State’s territory. In addition, nations must prevent the supply, sale and transfer of all arms and materiel – along with any form of military training – to the named individuals and entities.The list is updated regularly on the basis of relevant information provided by Member States and regional organizations.
2. Do the Buckeyes have a second scorer? Do they even need one?Since Thomas left for the NBA Draft at the end of last season, OSU has been looking to fill the hole he left behind. Junior forward LaQuinton Ross is the predominant scorer for the team, leading the Buckeyes with 15.4 points per game. But Matta’s squad has seen numerous players step up — only to falter — as the second guy. Everyone — from senior guards Aaron Craft and Lenzelle Smith Jr. to junior forward Sam Thompson and junior guard Shannon Scott — have at times looked like the player OSU can look to for points. Scott most recently put up 18 points in a loss against Michigan in the Big Ten Tournament semifinals, but perhaps the Buckeyes don’t need someone to step up on a consistent basis. Were it not for a missed 3-pointer by Craft, OSU would have had an opportunity to advance to the Big Ten title game against Michigan State, a team it beat a week earlier. If OSU has won 25 games this season with a rotation of players scoring behind Ross, what is to say they need a second strong shooter now? If OSU does make a deep run in the Big Dance, do not be shocked to see different names at the top of the scoring sheet following each game. 5. Buckeye post playIt’s no secret that OSU hasn’t looked for much from its postgame all season. Junior centers Amir Williams and Trey McDonald combine to average just 10.1 points per game, a far cry from what Sullinger used to do two years ago. But Williams, the starter, found himself on the bench during the important moments of the loss to the Wolverines Saturday in favor of McDonald. Matta is known for sticking with a hot lineup when his team needs a boost, so it will be interesting to see which player comes to play in the tournament. Winning in the postseason is very difficult without a solid low post game, so for OSU to have a chance, one of (or both) players will need to step up.

OSU won, 71-67.Credit: Shelby Lum / Photo editorThe Lantern sports editors share their insight on what fans should know about Thursday’s matchup against Dayton in the second round of the NCAA tournament. 1. Does Thad Matta extend his streak of Sweet Sixteens to five?Even with the departure of players like Evan Turner, Jon Diebler, William Buford, Jared Sullinger and Deshaun Thomas, coach Thad Matta has helped the Buckeyes sustain a consistent level of success in the NCAA Tournament. In each of the last four years, Matta has led OSU to at least the Sweet Sixteen — twice advancing even deeper into the Big Dance — the only coach in the country to do so. But this season might prove one of the tougher challenges for Matta. With Dayton in the second round providing a stiff challenge with talented 3-point shooters, OSU will likely have to fight to win their first game. But it is in the next round that looms perhaps the bigger challenge. No. 3-seed Syracuse, who started the season 25-0 before losing five of its final seven games, is heavily favored to advance past No. 14-seed Western Michigan in the second round, and sports a zone defense that is likely to be difficult for OSU to handle. The Buckeyes have struggled at times this season against a zone, and perhaps no one runs the zone better than Syracuse coach Jim Boeheim. Not the easiest road for a team that is 208th in the country in points per game. 3. Defense wins championshipsAll the talk of OSU’s below-average offense this season leads to one thing seeming to get ignored: the Buckeyes still have a phenomenal defense. On the season, OSU is 12th in the country in average points allowed per game with just 59.8, and is led by two players who were named to the Big Ten all-defensive team. Craft in particular — who was named Big Ten defensive player of the year for the second time in three years and is the conference’s all-time leader in steals — will be the rock for a defense that will hope to cover the holes created by offensive issues. It is often said that offense sells tickets and defense wins championships. If that is the case, OSU must like its chances to make a run. Although, if the Buckeyes allow more than 70 points to their opponent — second-round matchup Dayton is averaging 73.4 this year — Matta’s squad might be in danger. This season, OSU has only allowed 70 or more points six times, going 0-6 in those games. The Buckeyes are good on defense, but it might not be enough this year. 4. A proper senior sendoffAll season long, players like Thompson and Scott have had nothing but good things to say about the two Buckeye seniors in Craft and Smith Jr. Both were the fastest players in program history to 100 wins, doing so Nov. 29 with a 99-64 win against North Florida in their 119th game for the Scarlet and Gray. After falling to Michigan in the Big Ten Tournament, Craft and Smith Jr. — along with the rest of the roster — watched Selection Sunday in Columbus for the first time in their careers. The team is a No. 6 seed in the Big Dance, the first time its been lower than a No. 2 in the guards’ careers. But sending the two seniors off properly is sure to be on the rest of the team’s mind heading into the second round game against Dayton. An early exit surely will put a dent on their illustrious careers.

Dublin make All-Ireland history with replay win over Kerry A full house at Croke Park for today’s clash. Dublin 1-18Kerry 0-15HISTORY WAS MADE under the Saturday night lights, Dublin’s All-Ireland dance of celebration as a seismic moment for the sport took place.Darby’s goal struck down Kerry in 1982. Lar’s hat-trick had halted Kilkenny in 2010. Two attempts were necessary in 2019 but ultimately Dublin were assured and got the job done. Five-in-a-row wrapped up as they grasped Sam Maguire for the seventh time this decade. Six points in it at the finish, Dublin getting their business done in the second half of a game that was balanced on a knife edge at the break when the teams were locked at 0-10 apiece.The defining moment arrived when many were returning to their seats after that absorbing opening period. Eoin Murchan was the unlikely scoring source for Dublin, a defender parachuted into their starting line-up who provided a marvellous goal that broke this game open.He had been detailed to police Sean O’Shea but bounded forward to gather the second-half throw-in from a loose punch by David Moran and then accelerated straight down the central corridor of the Kerry defence.Once he approached Shane Ryan’s goalmouth, the Na Fianna man’s composure was admirable as he planted his shot to the net. It was a critical intervention but 20 minutes later his evening ended in pain as he was carted off in clear discomfort after shipping a knock to the leg. He had made his mark though, the only goal of the evening was telling.Con O’Callaghan kicked a point an instant later but Kerry did fight back. They reeled off three points in the trot and by the 45th minute were only one adrift, 1-11 to 0-13. That was the closest they came to the champions on the scoreboard, their sharpness and accuracy eluding them in front of goal in the second half.They only chalked 0-5 on the board after the interval, a bunch of shots going away from a goal, a few more attacks breaking down and a path to goal obstructed by Stephen Cluxton in the 53rd minute as he stood tall to divert Stephen O’Brien’s piledriver away. Dean Rock supplied the last two points of the match, the insurance scores that copperfastened the success for Dublin. Their advantage could have swelled further but Diarmuid Connolly was denied by a fine late save from Shane Ryan.The first half was simply a joy to watch. 20 points split evenly between the sides, the exchanges lit up by shooting of a staggeringly high standard.Dublin had set the tone early, exploding from the blocks. Their eye was in early in front of goal. Con O’Callaghan, Ciaran Kilkenny and Paul Mannion had all snapped over points inside three minutes. Dublin created what looked a sizeable gap by the 8th minute, 0-5 to 0-1, that trio of marquee forwards continuing to drive them on.But Kerry gradually grew in stature, powered by their own lethal attacking combo of David Clifford and Paul Geaney. Between that quintet of attackers notched a combined 0-14 in the first half. It was terrific stuff.A packed house settled in for a rip-roaring second-half yet once Murchan cut through and raised that green flag, Dublin were in the ascendancy. The sense of inevitability grew about the outcome as the second half unfolded.Jim Gavin’s side at the summit as another championship concludes.Scorers for Dublin: Ciaran Kilkenny, Con O’Callaghan, Paul Mannion 0-4 each, Dean Rock 0-3 (0-1 ’45), Eoin Murchan 1-0, David Byrne, James McCarthy, Niall Scully 0-1 each.Scorers for Kerry: Seán O’Shea (0-3f), David Clifford (0-1f) 0-5 each, Paul Geaney 0-4, Adrian Spillane 0-1.Dublin1.

Stay on target Robert De Niro isn’t the only one who can toilet-train a cat.Pet owners with cash to burn and empty space in the bathroom can pre-order Catolet, a smart toilet for felines and small dogs.This niche gadget eliminates the pesky task of cleaning and refilling litter trays; once connected to a water supply and sewage system, the box runs on autopilot, flushing waste and eliminating odor without human intervention.Catolet employs built-in sensors that detect an animal’s arrival and departure from the crate. After a user-specified period, liquid and solid waste is carried off on a conveyor belt to be crushed and washed away, leaving the commode ready for use again.Connect directly to the water supply and sewage system, or the nearest faucet and toilet bowl (via Kickstarter)An included kit provides everything you need to hook Catolet up to the indoor plumbing. Or, connect the device to the nearest faucet and toilet bowl (as long as you don’t mind the pet’s poop mingling with personal refuse).Download the companion app for Android, iOS, and Windows to track how often your cat visits the litter tray, receive malfunction notifications, and set flushing intervals.The concept of a fully automatic litter box is not new.“However, the operating principle of the Catolet device has NEVER been used before,” the company said in a press release (emphasis theirs). “No waste is gathered in any container, [a] refill is not required.”A training program is also in place, helping the animal adapt to this new system in up to 21 days.Train your pet to use Catolet in fewer than 21 days (via Kickstarter)Three models—Catolet Basic, Catolet, and Catolet Plus—are available to pre-order on Kickstarter.Starting at $159, the basic model does not include a pump and shredder, and is only suitable for attaching to a toilet bowl or sewage riser. The main version can withstand up to 22 lbs, while the “Plus” is suitable for small dogs and large cats weighing up to 33 lbs.For now, the gadget comes in four colors (white, yellow, blue, or pink) to match your decor; additional designs (cat paws, “cute cat faces”) may roll out in the future.In less than one week, Catolet has collected nearly $10,000; the all-or-nothing project has 38 days to reach its $60,000 goal.

Bayern Munich president Uli Hoeness acknowledged the need for discussions, but guaranteed Niko Kovac will remain in charge against Benfica on TuesdayThe Bavarians appeared set for a 3-1 win in Saturday’s Bundesliga game with Fortuna Dusseldorf after Thomas Muller’s brace and a goal from Niklas Sule.However, in the final 15 minutes at Munich, Dodi Lukebakio scored two late goals to complete his hat-trick and secure Dusseldorf an unlikely point.The draw leaves Bayern without a win in three league games and nine points behind leaders Borussia Dortmund in fifth.Now Hoeness admits that private talks with Kovac over the situation are necessary.“Today is a difficult day for us,” Hoeness told Bild.Merson believes Arsenal should sign Sancho Manuel R. Medina – September 14, 2019 Borussia Dortmund winger Jadon Sancho might be the perfect player to play for the Gunners, according to former England international Paul Merson.“There is a need for internal discussions. But on Tuesday our coach will definitely be called Niko Kovac.”The 66-year-old was particularly frustrated by Bayern’s lacklustre defending.“What I saw in the first goal I know only from slapstick comedy films,” added Hoeness.“That is surreal. I feel like I am in a bad film.”The Champions League Group E game between Bayern and Benfica will begin at 21:00 (CET) on Tuesday.
Seven million Yemenis are closer than ever to starvation, the UN humanitarian coordinator in the country warned Tuesday, almost two years since a conflict escalated between the government and rebels.“Seven million Yemenis do not know where their next meal will come from and are ever closer to starvation” in a country of 27 million people, Jamie McGoldrick said.“Over 17 million people are currently unable to adequately feed themselves and are frequently forced to skip meals—women and girls eat the least and last,” he said in a statement.Yemen’s war pits the internationally recognised government of President Abedrabbo Mansour Hadi against Huthi rebels allied with forces loyal to former president Ali Abdullah Saleh.The fighting has intensified since a Saudi-led coalition intervened in support of the government in March 2015 after the Huthis seized the capital the previous September.Since early January, pro-government forces have pressed a major offensive aimed at recapturing Yemen’s Red Sea coastline, and retook the southwestern port of Mokha earlier this month.“I am deeply concerned with the escalation of conflict and militarisation of Yemen’s western coast. It is coming at a great cost to civilians,” McGoldrick said.Unexploded rockets have landed inside the rebel-held port of Hodeida, he said, “reducing even further the number of ships and imports” vital for Yemen’s food supplies.“Given that the country is 80-90 percent dependent on imported food staples, I am compelled to raise the alarm,” the UN official said.“If left unabated, these factors combined could accelerate the onset of famine.”Also on Tuesday, the UN children’s agency warned that 462,000 children were suffering from acute malnutrition.The UN aid chief warned last month that the impoverished Arabian Peninsula country was sliding deeper into humanitarian crisis and could face famine this year.Stephen O’Brien said that without “immediate action”, famine was “a possible scenario for 2017”.More than 7,400 people have been killed since the intervention began nearly two years ago, including around 1,400 children, according to the United Nations.

3 min read Free Workshop | August 28: Get Better Engagement and Build Trust With Customers Now March 12, 2013 If you’ve been waiting to read about “the next big thing” in social media or tech to come out of South by Southwest (SXSW) Interactive this year, don’t hold your breath. We’ve canvassed the festival and feel confident reporting that a powerhouse along the lines of Twitter or Foursquare — which launched here in previous years — is not in Austin right now.But there are interesting tech startups that are generating some buzz. As the interactive portion of SXSW winds down, here’s a look at three companies that we found most interesting:1. Speakerfy: A social way to listen to music across devices.The founders of Speakerfy can count former NBA center Shaq among their biggest fans (and not just because of he’s over seven feet tall). Speakerfy, an app that lets users wirelessly sync music between different internet-connected devices, was one of two winners of the “Pitch Shaq” contest. Registered SXSW attendees submitted 15-second pitches about their startups in hopes of winning some face time and possibly a monetary investment from the sports star.Say, for instance, you were on the beach with friends but were without an appropriate audio system. With Speakerfy, you could sync up everyone’s smartphones and tablets and iPods to play your music — broadcast through the speakers on those devices — all at the same time. It also allows users to link their playlists with other users. Speakerfy is available (free) on iOS devices and is expected on Android and Windows phones soon.2. Hyperactivate: Smart, social promotions for brands.Started three years ago, Hyperactivate’s “Hashtagart” application creates a real-time mosaic of avatar images collected from social networks every time a fan publishes a status with a client’s marketing message.Having worked with brands like Verizon, M&M’s and Major League Baseball , Hyperactivate says its mosaics usually generate 10,000 to 50,000 messages from fans and followers, which in turn have directed as many as 500,000 visitors to a brand’s landing page. People are encouraged to share a brand’s marketing message in order to be included in the interactive mosaic product.Additionally, Hyperactive’s platform is able to measure the number of clicks and activations each social media message associated with a promotion generates, the company says. Fun and, ideally, smart marketing.3. LeadRocket: A social tool for salespeople.The goal at LeadRocket is to improve the way business owners and their sales representatives communicate with clients over social media. The LeadRocket platform allows business users to launch and manage sales interactions over social media by listening for feedback, monitoring clicks and counting page views for pages on their site that originated from those social media posts.Basically, it lets you know exactly when a customer engages with your tweet or Facebook post and tells you if they clicked on it and how many pages they looked at. For sales people, it can be especially useful for knowing when to follow up and what topics among the content shared interests them most.LeadRocket offers a tiered pricing system. Accounts include basic (free), premium ($19.99) and team (pricing varies). This hands-on workshop will give you the tools to authentically connect with an increasingly skeptical online audience.
