Sevilla president discusses Unai Emery’s future amid Everton links

first_img1 Sevilla boss Unai Emery Everton managerial target Unai Emery ‘is not on the market’, according to Sevilla president Jose Castro.The Toffees are still searching for a new head coach following the sacking of Roberto Martinez, and it is believed they have the three-time Europa League-winning Spaniard on their short-list.There have been suggestions that the 44-year-old could look to leave the Ramón Sánchez Pizjuán Stadium this summer, however, Castro insists Emery will not be leaving.“The coach has understood our idiosyncrasies perfectly,” he told Sevilla TV.“He is crazy about football, the hours he puts in, how he manages the squad. I say that now after being successful, but also at the start of the season.“I can tell you he has said he is not on the market, and is not thinking about anything else.”last_img read more

first_imgNEIL BARRETT is one of Donegal’s best known fitness trainers, nutritionists and sports scientists.In a new series of articles for Donegal Daily, he will be writing about – and helping to tackle – an issue many people chose to ignore…obesity, and in particular childhood and teenage obesity.STOP KILLING YOUR KIDS WITH KINDNESS: BY NEIL BARRETT A bit of an alarmist headline but it gets your attention and, in essence, it’s very much true. After a very damming report last week relating to the rate at which Irish children, adolescents (and adults) are fast becoming the fattest in Europe, I have been asked by Donegal Daily to write a series of articles pertaining to health, nutrition and fitness specifically for adolescents that I hope will help the teenager, parent, guardian or carer make changes that deliver a long-lasting result.All the information is out there on healthy eating and exercise but unless you have a background in biomedical sciences it is extremely difficult to decipher the good information from the bad.Over the coming weeks I hope to offer advice on fitness, nutrition and healthy lifestyle habits for teenagers to help them make choices for a more fit, healthy and happy life.Phones, tablets, internet, X-Box, social media, alcohol, fast food…. the list of variables affecting adolescent health and fitness goes on. Teenagers are under huge amounts of pressure whether it’s exam stress, self-esteem, peer pressure or hormonal.Only 12 per cent of 10- to 18-year-olds get the recommended level of at least 60 minutes of moderate to vigorous physical activity every day. One in four is obese or overweight.So let us begin with this, if your child has a higher than average body fat % they are overweight because of you!You are responsible for them, you do the shopping, make the breakfast, lunch and dinners. Period!Now that is not to say it is directly your fault, you didn’t do this on purpose. But it is in your best interests to become aware of what your child should and should not be doing on a daily basis. Healthy lifestyle practices during adolescence are very important for lifelong good health and quality of life.Most parents are very much aware of the healthy principles for growth periods from ages 1 to 4.However, information on healthy lifestyle practices for the adolescent to adult period is less readily available.This is an extremely important period in all our lifetimes and one which has become very distorted in modern society. Think about this: the incubation period for most environmental disease (cancer, heart disease etc.) is 20-30 years.The highest rate of incidence is 40+years, therefore the foundations of heart disease and cancer begins in our teens and early adulthood.We know of no better preventable measure against all known diseases than healthy eating and an active lifestyle.Read my article next Thursday, and every Thursday, for a look at ways to help our teens reap the rewards of healthy habits.ABOUT NEIL:Neil Barrett MSc.

Panasonic’s tech inside of the Chrysler Portal is simply amazing

first_imgIT Trends of the Future That Are Worth Paying A… Autonomous vehicles, futuristic passenger cabins, facial recognition… These are a few of the things we can look forward to when it comes to automotive technology. Recently, I had a chance to check out all of Panasonic’s auto tech in one place during CES 2017 and there’s a lot to pay attention to. But with all of this tech coming out in the future, one of my favorite discoveries was definitely the Chrysler Portal…Panasonic and Chrysler worked together on this amazing future concept cabin, but the good news is that it’s built on technology that actually exists today. The Portal is decked out with technology that really gives you a sense of living in the future.Approaching the car will trigger the facial recognition cameras and identify each user that’s present in the vehicle. From there, your favorite music, preferences, and other preferred customizations will be loaded to give you a real sense of personalization during your driving experience. Once you’re seated, the High-Mount display is the main source of navigating all of the tech inside. This display will show driver and passenger content, spacial awareness information, and more. The information here will provide stats on not only what’s happening within the vehicle, but outside of it as well, which is pretty amazing.When it comes to enhancing the driving experience, look no further than Personal Zoned Audio. This amazing technology creates an acoustical bubble around each person in the car. What does that mean for you? Well, this will allow for personal listening zones contained within each seat allowing each person to jam out to their favorite tunes without disturbing others.The Chrysler Portal also allows for home automation control. If you’re a fan of smart home setups, Panasonic’s integrated technology makes it easier than ever to control things whether you’re on the way home or heading out for the night. On the center stack in the Portal, there’s a very awesome “Home” section, which puts all of your smart home devices in one place, right at your finger tips. Everything from adjusting the temperature to door locks, and climate control is all possible from the Portal.Seeing all of this technology within a vehicle is truly amazing. The Chrysler Portal is truly something ripped from the future. The amazing part is that this is all technology which actually exists today. Everything Panasonic and Chrysler worked on implementing within the Portal is ready for the here and now. So we’re not just talking about an experience ready for 2025, but potentially one that’s ready for tomorrow. Just imagine having all of this awesome tech within an autonomous vehicle. Instead of actually driving somewhere, you’re just relaxing and enjoying the ride.To access additional videos on Panasonic’s transportation initiatives, see this site.

The 14 Tools You Need to Nurture Your Dream Clients

first_imgIf you want to pursue your dream clients across time and space, you are going to need a professional pursuit plan that allows you to persist as a value creator and not a nuisance. Stringing together the 14 tools you need to nurture your dream clients will allow you to become known as someone worth a meeting.The Phone: You may not have expected this tool to be first on the list, but it belongs here. If you want to be known, then don’t wait for your dream client to bump into you on a social channel. Instead, make yourself known. Even if you don’t reach a contact, leaving a voicemail announces your arrival. You want to be known, and you want to be known as a value creator.Voice Mail: Salespeople can be a superstitious lot. Some avoid voice mail, believing that it hurts them to put their prospective clients on notice that they are calling. There is no reason not to have your voice heard, especially if you have a message that shows your conviction in your ability to provide them real value in exchange for their time.Email: Email should not be your first choice, but it fits well here in third place. Email allows you to follow up on your phone call and voice mail. You can describe the value you are trading for your dream client’s time, and you can provide your phone number. You can also let them know that you will be trying them very soon. Don’t ask them to call you back. You call them.An Idea or Theory: If you want to gain meetings faster, sharing an idea that is valuable to your dream client—even if they don’t do business with you— it provides your contacts with evidence that you have done your homework and that you might be able to help them with their problems, challenges, or opportunities. Because there is no ask, you are making a deposit in the relationship, something that will pay dividends later.What You Have Learned: If you have learned something from serving other clients, such as how to produce a result in a new way, or a strategy that saves time and money, sharing that is the kind of thing that proves you are helping other companies with their problems. It also shows that you are focused on improving the results you help your clients produce.Your Views: If you have the business acumen, and if you have the situational knowledge, sharing your view on what you believe is right now and what follows makes for an excellent nurture tool. It may be the context behind the “advice” that is necessary to be a trusted advisor. Or it might be the advice itself. In either case, you are providing value without claiming any, and in doing so, nurturing the relationships you need.Your Company’s Blog Posts: Most of the people you want to schedule a meeting with are not reading your company’s blog. But if your company creates relevant, compelling content, you have an excellent tool for nurturing relationships. But you can’t simply send a link. Instead, you have to explain why it’s important and why your dream client will benefit from reading it. The pro tip here is to paste the money line into the email when you send it, preventing them from having to find it. The super pro tip is to print it, highlight it, write a personal note, and mail it.Hand-Written Card: A handwritten card is personal. When you enclose your business card and offer to be of service should your dream client need anything, your card will likely be the only one your contacts ever receive. While your peers bang away on email, you, a real human, sent them a tangible note. You are now differentiated in a way that indicates you are thoughtful.Other Company’s Blog Posts: When you say something is true, it may be true. When an impartial third party says something is true, your dream client believes it. Not only can you share insights from others as a way to nurture your dream clients, but you can also demonstrate that you are someone who is on top of their industry, their client’s industry, and paying attention to what’s important.Diagnostic Tools: You may or may not have something that fits this description, but if you do, you have an excellent nurture tool. If you can allow your clients to analyze their situation and see how they might produce a better result, the fact that they can discover something for themselves can help them decide to meet with you to explore change.Trade Journals: The industry rags always have relevant content, even if not everything is appropriate for the case you are trying to make about why your dream client should change and what they should do. It’s more proof that you aren’t the average salesperson who believes their company and their product is what should be most relevant to their dream client. Because you are focused on business outcomes, you demonstrate what you think is essential.News Articles: If you want people to believe that you might be capable of being their trusted advisor, start by doing some of their thinking for them. Think of yourself as their second brain, working to cover some of the areas of their business they need to monitor for them. The work you do here is the same work you will do for them when they eventually sign your contract and begin working with you. There is no reason to wait to get started.Case Studies: Case studies are not always the best and most relevant content for nurturing. If you are going to use them, you are going to have to provide them a fitting theory and explain why you think it’s worth your prospective client’s time. Most case studies try to share the reason a client changed and their new results after buying, but they seem to try too hard. If you can, highlight what’s relevant and add a note, expecting your contacts aren’t going to read it.White Papers: Also not something that is likely to be read and studied. But when they are graphics-heavy and look like magazines, they can compel people to give them a longer look. The more you can personalize it and tie to something you know about your prospective client, the more work it can do as a nurturing tool.These tools are how you stay alive in your dream client’s mind. It’s also how you create value without claiming any. Using the tools in a thoughtful and well-designed process helps you be known as someone with the ideas and capacity to make a difference.
