COPY LINKAD Loading … Representative ImageReutersPoland, the current president of United Nations Security Council (UNSC), on Monday, dismissed Pakistan’s efforts of raising the Kashmir issue to the international security body and called for finding a bilateral solution, according to reports. “Poland hopes that both countries can work out a mutually beneficial solution bilaterally.” Poland’s ambassador to India Adam Burakowski told The Indian Express.”Like the European Union, we are in favour of a dialogue between India and Pakistan,” he added.Burakowski further said that as a non-permanent member of the UNSC, Poland stands ready to prevent actions impacting security situation. “I would like to emphasise on the word ‘bilaterally’, that’s the keyword,” he added.A Polish Foreign Ministry statement revealed that the Indian Minister of External Affairs, S Jaishankar, had explained to Polish Foreign Minister Jacek Czaputowicz on August 8, that the amendment of the Indian Constitution is of “strictly internal nature” and aims at “bringing security to the region that is particularly vulnerable to terrorist attacks,” reported TIE.Pakistan has sought to raise to the UN security council the recent move by the Indian government, which scrapped Jammu and Kashmir’s special status provided under Article 370 of the Constitution.The report came on the same day Pakistan Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi claimed that it will be difficult to find support against India from the five permanent members (P5) of the UNSC. He said garnering support “even from Muslim nations” would be difficult due to their strong economic relations with India.Qureshi said at a press conference on Monday, “People in the Security Council aren’t standing with flowers; any of the P5 members can be a hurdle. There shouldn’t be any ambiguity on that, do not live in a fool’s paradise.”The Security Council stated last week that New Delhi’s move was “within the framework of the Constitution of the Republic of India” and called for both the countries to “not allow a new aggravation of the situation in the region as a result of the decisions”.Russia, a permanent member of the UNSC, echoed the UN Chief’s statement on Article 370 and said, “We hope that the differences between them will be resolved by political and diplomatic means on a bilateral basis in accordance with the provisions of the Simla Agreement of 1972 and the Lahore Declaration of 1999.”Both the agreements state that Kashmir is a bilateral matter between India and Pakistan.Pakistan expelled Indian High Commissioner Ajay Bisaria on August 7 and suspended all bilateral ties with India in retaliation to New Delhi’s decision. The neighbouring country said the move was an “illegal, unilateral, reckless and coercive attempt” by India.center_img UN chief urges India & Pakistan to exercise ‘maximum restraint’ on Kashmir, recalls Simla agreementlast_img read more

Why Free Apps Can Be Time Wasters Not Productivity Boosters

first_img Listen Now Hear from Polar Explorers, ultra marathoners, authors, artists and a range of other unique personalities to better understand the traits that make excellence possible. 4 min read When it comes to business apps, free doesn’t always mean best. And they’re not always easy or convenient, either.While cash-strapped entrepreneurs can be tempted by free online apps that promise to simplify any number of business functions, the reality is that many no-cost applications require as much effort as sophisticated enterprise software to set up and use profitably.Here are five tips for avoiding some of the biggest stumbling blocks when it comes to using low-cost online tools:1. Don’t rush into deploying a free app.Even if a business function can be automated with a free app, that doesn’t mean it should be. Seemingly basic apps such as Gmail or Zoho Documents require a significant amount of work to set up and deploy in an organized, effective way. A more complex, but free app such as Do.com, a task management program by San Francisco-based Salesforce, can be overwhelming if you don’t have time to manage it properly.Keep in mind that any tool adds another level of complexity to your company. So before rushing to use a new Web tool, wait until you face a recurring problem. Then invest in a solution that makes sense for your company — whether it’s free or low-cost.Related: Have an App? Google Has Analytics for That2. Know what you need.If you have a significant business problem to solve, resist the impulse to grab the first tool that claims to solve it. Online marketplaces such as GetApp, Google Marketplace and Downloads Marketplace for Microsoft Office are gatekeepers for thousands of business apps, but window shopping isn’t an effective way to pick business software. Think of these sites as the final stops before committing to business software — not the first.Before you choose an app, ask yourself: “Where does this specific app fit in my business?” Then, get a better understanding of your workflows and what you’re trying to accomplish. Several online diagramming tools can help you select the right kind of workflow solution, including Cacoo and Mockingbird.3. Understand that less is usually more.Don’t be reluctant to start with simple tools, including ones you may already be using. Can any of them do double duty? For example, shared spreadsheets from downloaded premade templates from Google Docs or Microsoft Office can be useful for keeping task and project lists.Also, remember that using multiple apps requires managing multiple passwords, user identities and administrator accounts, and perhaps worst of all, creates a serious hassle when it comes to migrating and uploading company and employee data.To keep things simple, use as many apps as you can in the same family of products to simplify and centralize management and the ways employees access them. Google Apps, Zoho and Microsoft Office all have grouped products. Choose a service that offers paid upgrades once your business outgrows the free version.Related: How Google’s ‘Content Experiments’ Can Simplify Website Testing4. Ease your team into using new apps.A tool is only as good as the people who use it. Don’t be too surprised if your employees resist using a new tool, especially if it seems to come out of nowhere. Even small changes to your employees’ routines can be disruptive and possibly stressful.Start using a new service with one project or one account and then get everyone’s feedback about how the system can work in your shop. If it’s a bust, you’ll know early and won’t face an office revolt.5. Find out the actual cost of “free” tools.No matter how little they cost, free tools never really cost nothing. Even if they don’t cost you money to use they do require one of your most valuable assets: time. Plan for how many hours you will need to invest in learning the new tool, so that you can spend the rest of your time most effectively. You’ll need to consider the time it will take to choose which app is right, to set it up, to train employees how to use it, handling administration and troubleshooting.To give you an idea, time managing tools such as Klok and Toggl can show what you and your employees invest in deploying new systems. If it looks like using a new app won’t be time-effective for your business then you might want to consider another option. Related: Want to Get Into the App Business?

British Airways parent IAG eyeing a bid for Norwegian Air

British Airways parent IAG eyeing a bid for Norwegian Air

first_imgBritish Airways parent IAG eyeing a bid for Norwegian Air Thursday, April 12, 2018 Travelweek Group Share TORONTO — Just days after Norwegian Air put its plans for transatlantic flights out of Canada on hold, comes word that British Airways’ parent IAG could be looking to buy the airline.British Airways’ parent company said Thursday it is considering making an offer for the low-cost carrier.International Airlines Group says it has acquired 4.61% of Norwegian Air Shuttle “to establish a position from which to initiate discussions, including the possibility of a full offer for Norwegian.” IAG already operates LEVEL, a low-cost carrier out of Spain. With LEVEL’s launch IAG now has five main airline brands, including Aer Lingus, British Airways, Iberia and Vueling.IAG says no official discussions have taken place, and the company emphasized that it hasn’t decided whether it will make an offer.Shares in Norwegian Air jumped 37% on the news.Norwegian Air Shuttle has rocked the long-haul market with offers like US$140 tickets from Edinburgh to New York.More news:  Kory Sterling is TL Network Canada’s new Sales Manager CanadaHere in Canada, Norwegian Air filed with the Canadian Transportation Agency to possibly start transatlantic flights from this market starting summer 2018, however on Tuesday it was reported that the airline has pushed back plans for a possible Canada launch until at least spring or summer 2019 due to aircraft delivery delays.In a statement, the Oslo, Norway, based company said it had “no prior knowledge of this acquisition,” adding it had “not been in any discussions or dialogue with IAG about the matter.”“Norwegian believes that interest from one of the largest international aviation groups demonstrates the sustainability and potential of our business model and global growth,” it said.For months there has been talk of a possible LCC alliance between Ryanair and Norwegian. Ryanair’s CEO Michael O’Leary has said he has no plans to expand Ryanair’s operations across the Atlantic but the airline has been in talks with Norwegian about a possible partnership that would see Ryanair piggyback on Norwegian’s long-haul routes. Ryanair is now the biggest European airline in terms of passengers flown – or at least it was until 2017, when a snafu with pilot holiday time schedules led to the cancellation of thousands of flights (and Lufthansa Group grabbed the title).More news:  Flights cancelled as British Airways hit by computer problem With files from The Associated Presscenter_img << Previous PostNext Post >> Tags: British Airways, Norwegian Air Posted bylast_img read more
