Nominees dream of walking away from the gala with a gold statue, fashion designers dream of their red carpet creation scoring praise, and dozens of businesses dream of their product finding a home in the Oscar gift bag.swag bags, contain a variety of trinkets and opulent baubles.For example, the items in last year's bag included a one-ounce bottle of Purell hand sanitizer with a jelly sleeve that was gold and bejeweled with crystals, valued at $135, and a four night-stay for two at Abu Camp in Botswana for an elephant safari, valued at $15,000.Before you jump into the placement process, decide on your promotion goals, says Stacy Jones, CEO of Hollywood Branded Inc., an El Segundo, Calif., company that places products in awards show gift bags.Or is a photo of your product in the hands of a celebrity what you're after to use for PR and social media?Typically, you need to start trying to get your product in the Oscar presenters' bags months before the big day.
Three years after inking a distribution deal with French telecom giant Orange, Netflix has announced that it’s renewing the partnership — and adding dozens more markets to the the agreement.Netflix launched in France back in September 2014, with some political leaders anxious about what its arrival would mean for the nation’s culture.Following a swift 100,000 Netflix sign-ups, Orange — France’s biggest telecom company — revealed that it would offer Netflix through its set-top boxes, clearly a huge boon for the video-streaming company as it sought to gain mindshare among the French masses.Fast-forward to 2017, and the duo have gone one step further by expanding the partnership to cover a total of 29 markets across Europe, the Middle East, and Africa.The new markets include Belgium, Spain, Poland, Romania, Slovakia, Botswana, Cameroon, Egypt, Iraq, Jordan, Liberia, Morocco, Senegal, Sierra Leone, and Tunisia, among others.“This partnership builds on our strong relationship with Orange in France, offering in the future, the possibility for millions of our customers in multiple countries to enjoy the world’s leading internet entertainment service seamlessly, in one place,” said Netflix CEO Reed Hastings, in a blog post.

p A private medical facility in the city of Gaborone in Botswana has started receiving bitcoin as a form of payment for treatment.Run by Dr Donald Ariisa, it is the only health facility in the whole country that accepts the cryptocurrency for payment alongside cash.Speaking to Cointelegraph, Dr Ariisa pointed out that what attracted and inspired him to accept Bitcoin as a payment for treatment was the fact that his clinic is focused on adopting technologies that allow for sustainability in offering accessible services.Bitcoin, he says, is being embraced by the world and the youth, in particular, who may not have fiat money but may be involved in mining Bitcoin or working online for it.The doctor’s love for new technologies is what led him to accepting bitcoin for payment.I wish to be part of the birth of a new currency that creates so much freedom for humanity

You can walk along the edges of an under-construction building in Botswana, then toggle over to the torpedo hold of the USS Intrepid on Manhattan s West Side.In VR architecture, the difference between real and unreal is fluid and, to a large extent, unimportant.What is important, and potentially revolutionary, is VR s ability to draw designers and their clients into a visceral world of dimension, scale, and feeling, removing the unfortunate schism between a built environment that exists in three dimensions and a visualization of it that has until now existed in two.You can t help but say wow, says George Valdes, VP of technology at Iris VR, one of several software companies that have popped up to facilitate such scenarios— viewed on hardware like Google Cardboard, Oculus Rift or HTC Vibe —for firms large and small.It happens every time a client or an architect jumps into a project for the first time.You can also change the sun s position, photograph details, add layers, and sketch three-dimensional notes and drawings.
After years of 70-hour weeks and corporate stress, software analyst Brian Trautman bought a 53-foot sailboat, quit his Seattle consulting job, sold his house and car and most everything else, and set sail for a seven-month cruise to Australia, cutting his tether to office deadlines and work headaches.The sailboat Delos has become a 21st-century floating media business, a video-production empire complete with dedicated fans, T-shirts for sale, crowdfunding and a reality show that draws hundreds of thousands of viewers online.On the Delos, he lost a smartphone overboard in Borneo and swamped a camera with seawater off Madagascar, losing irreplaceable footage.He smashed two expensive drones—one crashed into the mast near Mauritius, another into a chain-link fence in Botswana, landing at the feet of an elderly African tribeswoman mending a dress.Back in his consultant days, he found building a customer base and handling payroll and insurance frustrating.And instead of one boss, he now must answer to the 1,013 people on crowdfunding site Patreon who support the business.
