The internet has made it possible for people to connect with one another around the world. Information is shared at an extremely high rate. Individuals are able to access cultures that they could not 20 years ago without physically visiting a certain part of the world. This has led to a type of globalization that affects every business. Markets are wide open. Business owners must be prepared to entertain customers with unique needs and preferences. Experts in online marketing believe that the power of the internet is underrated. Business leaders are barely discovering how online commerce will continue to affect daily operations. Social media is at the forefront of communication. Many businesses are still behind on these platforms. Social media helps build a following that is catered to the interest of a person’s profile. Retailers are discovering that this is an effective method to reaching customers. It does not benefit a company to have a large number of shoppers in their store who are not buying the product. Many online marketing campaigns simulate this. There are professional internet marketers who promise big numbers and are able to create an audience for any website. However, a huge following online does not guarantee sales. It is important for marketers to identify the target and focus their efforts on generating high usage rates with their online profiles. Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram are the leaders of social media marketing. There is new technology developing all of the time. Businesses need to focus on the different ways the public learns to communicate. The changes are often subtle and go unnoticed by top executives. Those who are able to spot new trends in their early stages will be able to get out in front of their competition. Smartphones are the most popular tool for online interaction. Building an online presence means that the website and products must work well on the current devices that are being used by the population. A user-friendly program can mean the difference between great sales and a struggling project. Most website building software provide development images for desktop designs and smartphones

Italian-American automaker Fiat Chrysler is suspected of using illegal software, similar to the kind that Volkswagon used, to cheat on emissions tests, according to Business Insider.
The German Federal Motor Vehicle Office (KBA) sent a report to Italian and European authorities alleging that Chrysler-Fiat may be cheating on emissions testing. The KBA launched a sweeping emissions probe after Volkswagen admitted last year that it installed defeat devices on its engines to specifically cheat emissions tests. The KBA found that other automaker’s vehicles had emissions irregularities, as well. Fiat, as well as other major automakers had emissions irregularities.
Fiat is being accused of having its emissions control systems only operate when the automobile starts up. Fiat’s 500X model was tested by the KBA and it was discovered that the emission control system shut down after 22 minutes, just long enough for the emissions tests to run. This time-based cheat can sense how long the car has been running and once emissions tests have had time to run, approximately 22 minutes, the software disables emissions control devices. This causes the dangerous pollutant nitrogen oxide to be released into the air at 10 times or more the permitted level.
Fiat-Chrysler has declined to meet with German authorities, asserting that Italian officials are the only authority that is responsible to determine whether or not their vehicles comply with existing emissions regulations. German officials accuse the automaker of being uncooperative.
Haven’t we all wondered what it would be like to be home alone and loving it? Adam Sender has done just that. His “Pop-Up Exposition” at one of his homes in North Miami Beach, FL houses his first art expo called “Home Alone” featuring his personally owned art that he loves, appreciates, and recently displayed for himself and others to enjoy.
Sender’s Curator, Sarah Aibel, managed this project for him. Adam Sender’s collection of art totals over 1000 pieces of original artwork by such well-known artists as Cindy Sherman, Matthew Barney, Diana Al-Hadid, Jim Lamble, Richard Price and Chris Ofili, to name just a handful of superb artists. The Home Alone exhibit consists of 70 items.
Curator, Sarah, discussed during an interview with the Observer that this exhibit was a little different in planning as the display area is a residence, although empty, it is a little different than you would expect. The display area measured 5,000 square feet of space in a vacant home belonging to the Senders, including closets, kitchen, bathrooms, etc. The exhibit is beautiful and very creative. Sarah selected artwork that worked with each room and added drama to the homes features.
A sample of dramatic exhibition in a residence setting was one of Richard Price’s “Spiritual America” photographs of Brooke Shields, as a child with loads of makeup on as children will do, standing in a bathtub nude. This piece, of course, is hanging on a wall in a bathroom, in the bathtub. Close your eyes and you can visualize this setting. Not provocative for Richard Price, but as usual, extremely controversial as Price’s artistic talents wander. Throughout the home, are other artworks displayed in settings that draw you into exposing the talent of the artist.
The Home Alone exhibit coincided with the 46th Edition of Art Basel Exhibition in June this year. Art Basel is monumental in size, drawing crowds of serious viewers of art. The Basel Exhibition was organized by Jetzer and is a marriage between curators, the fair, and the art dealers bringing awareness to the public that galleries really promote artists and have a responsibility to the artists. Fergus McCaffrey cleverly puts the galleries purpose in perspective saying that the gallery shows the work of artists so its historic value can grow. Put a little more simply by Jack Shainman, ‘If you don’t believe in the work you’re presenting, then you can’t do much for the artist.’ Amen.
Having Adam Sender’s “Home Alone” exhibition during the same period as the Art Basel Exhibition wasn’t competitive, but informative. The stage was set for the dramatic, the futuristic, and contemporary. Possibly “Home Alone 2” is in the works, we can only hope to see and hear more about the huge art collection of Adam Sender.
Perhaps one of the greatest advancements in computing in the second decade of the 21st century is that of cloud based storage. On the one hand, it’s easy to understand why cloud based storage is such an attractive plum to businesses. All digital information obviously has to be stored somewhere, and the more information you need to store, the more expensive it is. In addition, the more widespread your business is, the more complex it becomes to find a way to allow all of your employees to access that information, and then businesses and other institutions end up with costly redundancies.
Take a hospital for example. A large hospital may see 100,000 or more patients per year. Some of those patients will, of course, be return patients that have large medical files that need to be stored. In addition, paperwork and signed documents also have to either be stored physically or scanned for digital storage – all of which is both costly and time consuming. Obviously storing digital files for the long term is less costly and consumes less space than a paper file, and yet even digital media still requires storage.
But then, of course, patients move and require services in other facilities that also need access to their medical records. Because of privacy issues, health care providers still regularly have to transfer hard copies of patient files, which requires that they be sent or messengered, which also takes time and money. Even if they are able to transfer a digital file, however, that file still needs to be stored indefinitely, which means the same information has to be stored in multiple locations, which requires each individual institution to provide a vast amount of redundant data storage space.
But imagine instead that a patient’s entire record could be stored in one central location that could then be accessed by any health care provider that needed them. It’s easy to see how this creates a major savings in terms of time and money, but it’s also easy to see how it creates a huge security nightmare.
That is where the pros at CipherCloud come in. CipherCloud is the next gen in cloud security that utilizes a host of digital security measures and top-level encryption to protect even the most sensitive cloud based information. CipherCloud’s cloud security platform provides numerous levels of comprehensive data protection and an extensive number of services that not only monitors user activity but also detects and warns of any anomalies in that activity.
Clearly there is every bit as much interest in cloud based storage as there is wariness of its safety and security. Just one year ago, CipherCloud received $50 million in funding to continue their quest to provide rock solid cloud security. Currently the company offers out of the box protection for Box, Office 365 and Salesforce.com and are working on expanding their product lines even further.
