New development set to ‘redefine Alderley living’

first_imgA Cheshire development – Alderley Park – is beginning to take shape with the launch of The Ride and The Serpentine.Created by luxury specialist PH Homes, this residential enclave near to fashionable Alderley Edge promises to ‘redefine Alderley living’; and these two new stages will add a wide variety of exclusive properties to the scheme.The Ride occupies a southern corner of the 400-acre former country estate of the Stanley family, with 14 homes inspired by the architecture of local villages, arranged around a newly-created ‘green’ adjacent to the estate’s original cricket pitch and walled garden.Entering through an imposing gateway with pillars topped by imperious stone eagles, it will feature a new landmark ‘lodge’ incorporating a distinctive octagonal ‘tower’, and includes the Gardener’s Cottage, a Victorian home originally built for the estate’s Head Gardener, transformed into a four bedroom home.PH Homes Alderley Park Cheshire The Ride and The Serpentine October 16, 2017The NegotiatorWhat’s your opinion?

Are you making any of these content marketing mistakes?

first_imgby: Brooke HowellThese days, content marketing is essential to getting your business noticed and connecting with customers and prospects. Once you’ve gotten started, though, it’s important to continually monitor your performance, learn more about top trends and proven tactics, and adjust your approach to do better in the future.This week I’ve been thinking about common content marketing mistakes I see companies making, and I found some articles and blog posts to help you learn more about what not to do so you can improve your company’s content marketing efforts.5 Mistakes You’re Making With Your Content Marketing Strategy by Jayson DeMers at Forbes: “Right content, wrong audience. This is perhaps the most common mistake I see businesses making. Among the businesses I work with, it’s rare that I see content that’s factually incorrect or poorly written. What’s far more common is seeing great content that’s just not right for its intended audience. How to avoid this mistake: This mistake can easily be avoided by testing out a variety of content with your audience. Consult your analytics to see which content has performed well in the past, and emulate that in terms of format, readability score and promotion and distribution methods.”Avoid Content Marketing Until You Can Answer “Yes” To These Two Questions by Casey Wright at The Huffington Post: “Is our customers’ experience consistent with our values? For every one company that is not yet ready to explain its values, there are a hundred who are too embarrassed by their real values to share them with their customers. The result is hypocrisy–something that is immediately sniffed out and punished by customers. Take McDonald’s for instance. McDonald’s is trying to rebrand as a healthy. They are leading this effort with their content marketing–increased transparency about ingredients and increased discussion of healthy menu options. Unfortunately for McDonald’s, these marketing efforts fall flat, because the experience most people have of McDonald’s is so different from the message McDonald’s is sending.” continue reading » ShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblrlast_img read more

Our national debt is estimated to be $25 trillion by 2021. So much for Republicans’ fiscal constraint. Our children and grandchildren will thank us. Mexico will pay for the wall.

MDC in a quagmire over By-Elections

first_imgMDC leader Morgan Tsvangirai Zimbabwe’s opposition MDC is in a dilemma over whether to participate in by-elections due in June this year.The Morgan Tsvangirai led MDC successfully won the recall of 21 MPs who had joined a splinter party throwing their seats vacant and necessitating the polls.The MDC has been riddled by leadership wrangles after losing in the July 2013 elections last year the former secretary general, Tendai Biti, broke away with 20 other legislators to form the MDC renewal.Tsvangirai hit back calling for their ouster from parliament since they no longer represented the party on whose ticket they had won their election two weeks ago he got his way but now faces another headache.Whether or not to participate in by elections for the vacant.MDC Spokesperson Obert Gutu says One of the key resolutions that was agreed upon at congress was that the MDC shall not participate in any election in Zimbabwe until such time that electoral reforms are carried out.The MDC wants an electronic voters roll, unbiased coverage in public media and equal access to all parts of the country particularly ZANU PF dominated rural areas.It’s unlikely the changes will be made before June and that is the cause of the MDC’s conundrum.The party’s national council is due to meet here in the next few days to answer the burning question to contest or not to contest.One person who certainly won’t be contesting is Willias Madzimure, one of the recalled MP’s.He and his counterparts will have their challenge to their recall heard by the constitutional court in a fortnight but he says if the ruling goes against them he won’t try to win back his seat.last_img read more

LTFRB OKs Bacolod PUV modernization route plan

first_imgBACOLOD City – The LandTransportation Franchising and Regulatory Board (LTFRB) awarded a notice ofcompliance to this city’s Local Public Transport Route Plan (LPTRP). Also, the Congress agreed to providean P80,000 subsidy per unit. During his talk, Delgra announced thatunits worth less than P1 million will also be available. “We would be able to transform thepublic transport landscape of Bacolod in the next three months. The routes,identified in partnership with the Department of Transportation and LTFRB, arethose seen as viable and sustainable,” said Delgra. “I’d like to think that the operatorsare receptive. In fact, I’ve talked to a number of them. They’re veryreceptive, we just need continuing engagement in terms of what the program isall about, what the elements of modernization are,” Delgra added. “It’s not just about shifting into newvehicle units, it’s the system itself that we want to change. We startedJanuary 2018 and we continue to implement it,” Delgra said. As part of the program, the LTFRB alsolaunched the “Tsuper Iskolar” with the Technical Education and Skills DevelopmentAuthority (TESDA). Delgra added the PUVMP would nothappen without the support of the local government and the transportstakeholders themselves. “About 67 percent of air pollution iscaused by jeepneys, that’s why I’m pushing for this. I hope that as soon as possible,we can start the implementation here in Bacolod,” said Lopez, who heads theCity Council’s committee on environment and ecology. The transition period will run untilJune 2020, and after it ends, “everything will be mandatory”, he said.center_img He noted that for Bacolod, some 22routes have been identified and validated to cover 2,400 modern vehicle units. TESDA Region 6 director Gaspar Gayonaintroduced the assistance offered to transport cooperatives to provide theirstakeholders with additional training through scholarships and livelihoodtraining. This will now pave the way for theimplementation of the Public Utility Vehicle (PUV) Modernization Program, LTFRBchairman Martin Delgra III said.  “We will assist you in formingcooperatives so you can apply for routes,” Delgra told the transport operators. Earlier, the LTFRB said it wouldprovide a five-percent equity, six-percent interest and a payment period ofseven years for the modern jeepneys that cost around P1.2 million to P1.8million. The roadshow aims to engage thetransport cooperatives and operators directly with the system of PUVMP, headded. Councilor Carlos Jose Lopez, who spokeduring the program, said he supports the PUVMP not only to provide the Bacolodcommuters a safe and comfortable travel, but also to protect the environment. Four groups, including the Federationof Bacolod City Drivers Association, Sentrong Samahan ng Tsuper at OperatorsNegros, United Negros Transport Cooperative and Pulupandan Transport SectorConsumer Cooperative, received certificates that will enable them to sendscholars for TESDA trainings.
