Some salespeople have more clients. They have more prospects, too. They make more money, and they get more than their fair share of the rewards. These are the “haves.”Some salespeople are woefully devoid of clients. A few possess not a single client of their own. They don’t have many prospects either. They don’t make nearly as much money, and they have none of the rewards. These are the “have-nots.”But clients, prospects, greater earnings, and all the other rewards are really outcomes. They’re really evidence of value having been created.The “haves” have made their prospecting calls. They have done the work to position themselves to win their clients. They have nurtured their dream clients. They have built consensus within these accounts. They have built the right solution with the people that care about what they sell. And they have created enough value to win these accounts.The “have-nots,” on the other hand, have not made the calls. They have not spent time nurturing their prospective clients by sharing with them valuable ideas. They have not developed the deep relationships that they needed in front of a sale. They have not worked to build the right solution with their prospective client. And they surely have not created enough value for their dream clients to win their business.When you look at the “haves” and the “have-nots,” don’t look at the differences in what each group has or doesn’t have. Instead, look at what one group “has” done that the other group “has not” done. It’s there that you’ll find the real differences. Essential Reading!

Bhopal, May 24 (PTI) A Congress leader in Madhya Pradesh has appealed to party President Sonia Gandhi to nominate a member from the Muslim community to contest Rajya Sabha elections in the state.General Secretary of the state Congress Committees Minority cell Mohammad Idrees Khan has said the move will enhance the partys image and attract the communitys vote.In a letter to Gandhi, Khan said, “In 2012, you had decided to send Ibrahim Qureshi to Rajya Sabha from MP but at the eleventh hour he was denied the seat and the same was given to senior Congress leader Satyavrat Chaturvedi.””If you didnt want to send Qureshi for any reason at that time, then in his place some other Muslim leader could have been given the chance as you had already decided to send him (Qureshi) to the Upper House…Who are the leaders who indulged in conspiracies to make you change your decision. Why you did not try to find out? It puts a question mark over your leadership,” the letter dated May 23 said.”After 2012, the party again denied the Rajya Sabha berth to a Muslim candidate in 2014. Though leaders like Syed Sajid Ali, Masarrat Shahid, Ibrahim Qureshi and others were in Delhi and in regular touch with top AICC office bearers, the seat was allotted to Congress General Secretary Digvijaya Singh,” it said.”If this time also the party fails to give Rajya Sabha berth to any Muslim candidate, then it will be a major setback for the community,” the letter said.advertisementKhan also alleged that Congress workers were unable to convey their feelings to the party president as there is no way to do so.”Create some system so that those who write a letter to the Party President should get at least one line reply from you. This will ensure that the party will not get weak,” he said.Three Rajya Sabha seats from Madhya Pradesh are to fall vacant. Sitting BJP members Anil Madhav Dave and journalist Chandan Mitra, besides Congress Vijay Laxmi Sadho are to retire.The notification for the biennial polls is likely to be issued today.

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) — Neymar and Brazilian teammates showed young American players how large a gap they must overcome.Roberto Firmino scored in the 11th minute off a cross from Douglas Costa, who burst down a flank past 21-year-old left back Antonee Robinson. Neymar added a penalty kick in the 44th minute after a debatable foul call, and Brazil overwhelmed the rebuilding U.S. 2-0 in an exhibition Friday night.“I don’t think we were afraid. I think just maybe a little nervous here and there,” interim U.S. coach Dave Sarachan said. “There could have been a situation where maybe the shoulder slump, the confidence, was blown.”The U.S. has two wins, two losses and three ties under Sarachan, who took over last October after the Americans failed to qualify for the World Cup. New general manager Earnie Stewart said this week a permanent coach will be announced later this year.Just 32,469 attended the match at MetLife Stadium, a possible site of the 2026 World Cup final, and Brazilian supporters outnumbered Americans by about a 10-1 margin. When Brazil beat the U.S. 2-0 in August 2010 shortly after the venue opened, the game drew 77,223.In its first match since a quarterfinal loss to Belgium at the World Cup, Brazil improved to 18-1 against the U.S. — with 11 straight wins since a 1-0 defeat in the 1998 CONCACAF Gold Cup. The Selecao has outscored the Americans 41-12, including 17-2 since the U.S. took a two-goal lead in the 2009 Confederations Cup final — a game Brazil won 3-2.“In the first half we didn’t defend, press as a team,” center back John Brooks said. “It was like one at a time. And when you press a team one at a time like Brazil, they play easily out of the back.”Brazil forward Roberto Firmino, front, goes up for the ball against United States midfielder Wil Trapp during the first half of an international soccer friendly match, Friday, Sept. 7, 2018, in East Rutherford, N.J. (AP Photo/Julio Cortez)Playing in New Jersey for the first time since losing to Costa Rica in a World Cup qualifier at Red Bull Arena last September, the U.S. did not force a save from goalkeeper Alisson until the 71st minute. All U.S. starters were 25 and under and the average of 23 years 117 days was under 24 for the fifth straight match.Midfielders Tyler Adams, Weston McKennie and Wil Trapp struggled for possession. The Americans were missing their top player, 19-year-old midfielder Christian Pulisic, who has an unspecified muscle injury.“If we had Christian tonight, I can’t say we’d have the ball 40 more percent of the time,” Sarachan said.Bobby Wood, the lone forward in a 4-1-4-1 formation, rarely had touches, and Sarachan said Pulisic and Jozy Altidore remain among the top American attackers.“We don’t have a plethora of forwards in our pool,” Sarachan said. “That’s an area where we still need to improve that position.”Brazil went ahead when Costa beat Robinson, and Firmino split defenders Matt Miazga and Brooks and with his right foot directed the ball past goalkeeper Zack Steffen for his eighth goal in 26 international appearances.“I probably overthought that I had to get too tight to him, and by the time I had settled my feet, he’d already made his mind to go and I didn’t reallt have a chance of catching him,” Robinson said.Neymar converted a penalty kick after the questionable call by Mexican referee Fernando Guerrero, the fourth official for U.S. loss at Trinidad and Tobago last October that eliminated the Americans in World Cup. Fabinho played a 1-2 with Firmino and cut into the penalty area. Trapp appeared to give him the slightest of pushes, and Fabinho tumbled past Brooks.Neymar stutter-stepped in his run-up, Steffen dove to his right and the striker softly kicked the ball in the other way for his 58th goal in 91 international appearances, third in Brazilian history behind Pele (77) and Ronaldo (62). Neymar scored at MetLife eight years ago in his international debut.Steffen kicked out his left foot in the 51st minute to save Neymar’s 6-yard shot off a pass from Costa, and Miazga cleared the ball off the line. The best U.S. chance was McKennie’s left-footed shot off a Kellyn Acosta pass in the 66th, which went wide.“The ability to connect passes was a difficult chore for our group early in the game,” Sarachan said, “and when you concede possession against a team like Brazil, it makes it hard. You do a lot of chasing.”Notes: Sarachan will run the team for Tuesday’s friendly against Mexico in Nashville, Tennessee, and likely for exhibitions on Oct. 12 against Colombia at Tampa, Florida, and versus Peru four days later at East Hartford, Connecticut. The U.S. also plays England and Italy in November. … The temporary grass field installed over the artificial turf had some brown patches and was immediately removed to prepare for the New York Giants’ opener Sunday against Jacksonville. … The section of American Outlaws behind one goal held up photos of Clint Dempsey before the match in honor of the U.S. star, who announced his retirement on Aug. 29. … Brooks will head back to Wolfsburg and miss Tuesday’s game. … Arthur made his Brazil debut in the 60th minute, Lucas Paqueta in the 70th, Richarlison in the 75th and Everton in the 80th. Dede entered in the 80th, his first appearance in five years.—By RONALD BLUM , AP Sports WriterTweetPinShare0 Shares
UEFA Champions League Lucky Madrid? Four finals in five years is not a fluke Ben Hayward Last updated 1 year ago 19:00 5/25/18 FacebookTwitterRedditcopy Comments(22) OSCAR DEL POZO UEFA Champions League Real Madrid v Liverpool Real Madrid Liverpool Opinion Zinedine Zidane’s side are on the verge of a European treble and despite some good fortune along the way, their success is not a chance occurrence Real Madrid stand on the brink of a historic achievement. Beat Liverpool in Kiev on Saturday night and Los Blancos will win their third successive Champions League crown, and a fourth in five seasons. Yet some still believe they have been lucky.The club’s long wait for their 10th European Cup, La Decima, ended in Lisbon four years ago with victory against Atletico in extra time after a dramatic late leveller from Sergio Ramos deep into added time. They had been seconds away from defeat.Two years on, against Atletico again, Los Blancos prevailed once more, this time on penalties. That after a route to the final that had seen Madrid face Roma, Wolfsburg and Manchester City, which was about an easy draw as they could have had, the first two of those teams not even qualifying for the competition the following season. Article continues below Editors’ Picks Goalkeeper crisis! Walker to the rescue but City sweating on Ederson injury ahead of Liverpool clash Out of his depth! Emery on borrowed time after another abysmal Arsenal display Diving, tactical fouls & the emerging war of words between Guardiola & Klopp Sorry, Cristiano! Pjanic is Juventus’ most important player right now In the final itself, Ramos saw a goal allowed when it should have been given offside, while Antoine Griezmann missed a penalty for Atletico and in the shootout, the Rojiblancos opted to go second despite winning the toss. Once again, fortune favoured Real.Last season, Zidane’s side blew Juventus away in the final after an evenly disputed first half in Cardiff. In the quarter-finals, however, Bayern Munich believed decisions had gone against them as Arturo Vidal was sent off and Cristiano Ronaldo twice scored from offside positions.This term, all three of Real’s rivals in the knockout stages have complained about the officials. Unai Emery claimed the refereeing had helped Los Blancos when his Paris Saint-Germain side lost 3-1 at the Santiago Bernabeu , while Juventus were furious at the award of a last-minute penalty in Madrid after they had overturned a three-goal deficit from the first leg and Bayern believed they should have had three spot-kicks in the sides’ semi-final tie.In the meantime, Madrid have not played particularly well, either. There was an element of fortune in their second and their goals against PSG, while they needed that contentious penalty to prevail versus Juve and over the two legs in the semi-finals, the German side created 39 opportunities.Yet here they are – in the final for the third year in a row and a fourth time in five seasons. Whether they win or lose on Saturday, it is an amazing achievement.“Our squad always put its soul and heart into every competition,” Ramos said on Tuesday at the media open day ahead of the trip to Kiev. “It would be another trophy, another Champions League. Really we could start to talk of a an era-defining team.”And asked whether Madrid had been lucky, he said: “If you keep working hard, it pays off. It can’t be luck if we are there every year.”He is right. Winning teams need to have some luck on their side, anyway, while good fortune is usually the result of hard work. And four finals in five years is anything but a fluke for this Real Madrid side.

Story Highlights The project, being undertaken at a cost of $25 million. Since its inception in 1975, the programme has benefitted approximately 20,000 children across the island with various types of disabilities. It entails construction of eight classrooms, an administrative area, bathrooms, kitchen, dining area, therapy room, caretaker’s quarters, play area, perimeter fence, multi-purpose room, principal’s office, among other things. The Ministry of Labour and Social Security has partnered with Digicel Foundation to expand the Early Stimulation Programme (ESP), which caters to children with disabilities.The project, being undertaken at a cost of $25 million, entails construction of eight classrooms, an administrative area, bathrooms, kitchen, dining area, therapy room, caretaker’s quarters, play area, perimeter fence, multi-purpose room, principal’s office, among other things. It is expected to be completed by March 2014 and will facilitate a 40 per cent increase in students benefiting under the programme.During the construction phase, Digicel will provide temporary facilities at Early Stimulation Plus, located at 1a Ostend Close, to accommodate the children.Speaking at the official signing ceremony at Digicel’s headquarters in downtown Kingston on October 23, Labour Minister, Hon. Derrick Kellier, said the partnership highlights the ongoing commitment of the Government in ensuring that all Jamaicans, including the most vulnerable, are given a fair chance to having an improved quality of life.He informed that this year, the Government has strengthened its focus on programmes targeted at persons with disabilities through an injection of funding from international development partners including the Japanese Government, the Inter American Development Bank (IDB) and the World Bank.Mr. Kellier said that under the IDB-funded Integrated Social Protection and Labour Programme, $1 million has been committed to improving the services offered through the ESP. “This will allow for infrastructure improvement to the ESP Assessment Centre at Hanover Street and the ESP Stimulation Plus Early Childhood Centre,” he noted.He informed further that the Social and Economic Inclusion of Persons with Disabilities project, funded by the Japanese Government and the World Bank to the tune of US$2.9 million, will facilitate the training and employment of persons with disabilities who are benefiting under the Programme of Advancement Through Health and Education (PATH).Mr. Kellier added that it will also assist in services offered by the ESP through the provision of equipment and adaptive aids, building the capacity of staff, and providing support to parents and caregivers.In her remarks, Executive Director, Digicel Foundation, Samantha Chantrelle, said the organisation is committed to equipping the school with the best facilities possible. “We’re going to make it one of those schools in Jamaica that every child would want to go to, that’s our aim,” she stated.She informed that since the start of the year, the Foundation has committed over $100 million to special needs services in the island.The ESP, inclusive of Early Stimulation Plus, is an agency of the Ministry of Labour that has been catering to the needs of disabled children and their families for over 30 years.Since its inception in 1975, the programme has benefitted approximately 20,000 children across the island with various types of disabilities. Currently, the programme offers centre and community-based services to over 1, 241 children.
Nova Scotians are one step closer to better access to health services with national benchmarks for reducing wait times established jointly by the provinces and the federal government. The benchmarks, announced today, Dec. 12, have been set for cancer treatment, cardiac surgery, joint replacement and sight restoration. “I’m proud that Nova Scotia has met its commitment to the 10-year plan to strengthen health care,” said Health Minister Angus MacIsaac, who is in Toronto with other provincial health ministers for the announcement. “We all worked together this past year to make sure these benchmarks are based on scientific evidence and research,” said Mr. MacIsaac. “This initiative demonstrates that the provinces face common challenges in the area of wait times and common goals,” said Mr. MacIsaac. “Reducing wait times is a complex task and these benchmarks are one part of the solution. “Setting these is a milestone, just as reporting to the public about our Nova Scotia wait times was a milestone for the province in October.” The benchmarks will guide the Department of Health as it moves forward to improve timely care for Nova Scotians. “In order to reach these goals we will continue to work closely with the clinical community and health districts in Nova Scotia,” he said.
OTTAWA – The inquiry into missing and murdered Indigenous women and girls has lost another executive director.The federally funded commission — plagued by many staffing changes throughout its tenure — says Debbie Reid has left the commission as executive director but it will not comment further, calling it a personnel matter.In a statement, the commission thanks Reid for her contributions.It says the inquiry’s work will not be disrupted during the transition that will see director of operations Calvin Wong act as interim executive director effective immediately.The commission says it has a “sacred responsibility” to the 597 families and survivors who have already entrusted their stories to the inquiry and the 600 others registered to do so.Reid, a former special adviser to the Assembly of First Nations, took the role of executive director in October, replacing Michele Moreau.Federal Crown-Indigenous Relations Minister Carolyn Bennett responded to the latest departure in a statement, saying she’s worried the ongoing turnover at the commission will “distract from the work at hand.”However, while she says her department shares’ families concerns about difficulties at the commission, its independence is crucial and the government won’t be intervening.

Concern over low producer prices for such major commodities as coffee, sugar, meat, oils and cotton tops the agenda at a three-day meeting of the UN Committee on Commodity Problems (CCP), which opened yesterday in Rome. The role of the CCP, an interim committee of the UN Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) Governing Council, is to review such problems and develop policy recommendations for the Council to sustain better market conditions and break the boom and bust cycles. “Variability continues to be the dominant feature of commodity price behaviour,” according to one of the documents prepared for the meeting. For example, between 1998 and 2001 coffee prices fell 58 per cent because of oversupply, sluggish demand and rising stocks. Persistent low prices have led to supply reductions, which have strengthened prices recently. Prices rose by a third between 2001 and November 2004, as total production for the crop year 2003-2004 reached 6 million tons, the lowest since 1998-1999. “Prospects of a similar crop size in 2004-2005 could result in a continued upward trend in prices,” the document says. But the challenge for the coffee industry is “how to sustain these better market conditions to avoid a return to the boom and bust cycles.” The Committee will review a series of reports from the intergovernmental groups, examine food security in light of trade policy reforms and discuss emerging issues of importance to agricultural commodity markets.

ASTRONAUTS WORKING IN the International Space Station will be getting better quality coffee in their workplace later this year.The Italian Space Agency will be sending up the first espresso machine, designed specifically for operating in zero gravity, to the station in November.Dubbed ISSpresso (geddit?), the machine will be made by the Italian espresso maker Lavazza so the quality will be better than the instant coffee that’s been brought up to the station in the past.The engineering company Argotec, which is contracted with the European Space Agency to provides spacefood to the ISS, is also helping with the project.The machine uses capsules to make the espresso, which Lavazza says helps to brew the drink in a zero gravity environment. The coffee is then served in a sealed pouch, allowing the astronauts to sip the coffee through a straw, but the machine will serve other hot drinks like tea if required.The espresso machine is currently being tested at Argotec’s labs and will be brought up by Samantha Cristoforetti, who will become the first Italian woman in space.

Le cancer du poumon s’attaque de plus en plus aux femmesFrance – En 15 ans, la mortalité par cancer du poumon a été multipliée par quatre chez les femmes de 40 ans alors qu’elle a été divisée par deux en seulement dix années chez les hommes du même âge, indique le dernier bulletin épidémiologique de l’Institut de veille sanitaire (InVS). Si la mortalité par cancer du poumon est un fléau de plus en plus féminin, c’est bien parce que les femmes ont eu une consommation de cigarettes plus importante que celle des hommes à partir des années 80.A cette période, les hommes ont commencé à réduire leur consommation de tabac, alors qu’il faudra attendre 1991 pour que les femmes prennent cette initiative. Depuis 1993, le pic de mortalité par cancer du poumon qui était alors à son apogée chez les hommes s’est mis peu à peu à baisser, jusqu’à être divisé par deux en dix ans chez les 35-44 ans. Un succès que l’InVS attribue en partie “à la prévention du tabagisme”.Avec 7.700 décès par an pour 10.000 cas diagnostiqués, le cancer du poumon est le deuxième cancer le plus mortel chez les femmes et l’épidémie ne devrait cesser de s’accentuer ces prochaines années.

WASHINGTON — U.S. employers pulled back on hiring in May by adding only 138,000 jobs, though the gains were enough to help nudge the unemployment rate down to a 16 year-low.The Labor Department said Friday that the jobless rate fell to 4.3 percent the lowest level since 2001, from 4.4 percent. Still, the rate declined mainly for a less-than-encouraging reason: People stopped looking for work in May and so were no longer counted as unemployed.The government’s report suggested that eight years into the recovery from the Great Recession, job growth may be slowing after a long stretch of robust gains. Besides the hiring slowdown in May, the government on Friday revised down its estimate of job growth in March and April by a combined 66,000. Monthly job gains have averaged 121,000 over the past three months, compared with 181,000 over the past 12 months.Employers are now choosing from among a smaller pool of job applicants, and some are having trouble finding people with the skills they need. Average hourly earnings have risen a middling 2.5 percent over the past year.“Given reports that job openings are near all-time highs, it suggests that businesses are struggling to fill these positions,” said Beth Ann Bovino, U.S. chief economist for S&P Global Ratings.
QUEENS, NY (WSVN) — A tourist visiting New York City from South Florida is fighting for his life after he was punched in the face and knocked unconscious.Police are searching for the man accused of punching 35-year-old Boca Raton resident Sandor Szabo in the face around 1:15 a.m. Sunday.Family members told the New York Daily News that Szabo knocked on the window of a parked SUV, possibly mistaking it for his Uber ride.That’s when police said the driver punched Szabo, who fell backward and slammed his head on the sidewalk.Officers said Szabo lost consciousness when his head hit the pavement. He was taken to a hospital in critical condition and is on life support, according to WCBS.Szabo’s brother Dominik told the newspaper the prognosis looks grim.“The diagnosis is he’s probably not gonna make it,” he said.
