There are many areas of marketing technology that are considered “hot” right now.And yet MarketsandMarkets forecasts that the global event management software market alone is expected to grow from $5.10 billion in 2014 to $7.78 billion by 2019.Despite all the event creation, promotion, attendee check-in, and management solutions available — both at the low end and within the enterprise — many companies still run their respective seminars and conferences exactly as they used to decades ago.In B2B circles, the days of stapling business cards to manually completed “lead sheets” are still with us.Even now, with smartphones and tablets as prevalent as they are, double-entry of attendees is rife, and sales reps have no clue when an “important person” walks into the conference hall.Today, Attend wants to change that for good with the release of a new mobile app that augments its existing event management platform.
Four weeks later, his grisly fate was revealed.This case spawned a fearful rumor that tapped into the Satanic Panic of the 1980s, that cultists were planning to kidnap children for their rituals.The man who d convinced his followers to join in his madness—the bodies found at Rancho Santa Elena were just some of the casualties—was El Padrino, the Godfather his real identity: he was 26-year-old Adolfo de Jesus Constanzo , with help from 24-year-old Sara Aldrete, a.k.a.Rolling Stone s in-depth investigation of the case excellent reading if you re not faint of heart, as is this Texas Monthly take on the story quotes an anthropologist as calling Constanzo the Pied Piper of death.Costanzo had grown up in the Santería religion, but his beliefs had morphed into something far darker, of his own design, as he gained more power.Jouret, a doctor, was the face of the organization, delivering the lectures that—despite warning of the looming environmental apocalypse—were magnetic enough to attract new followers.
• Some individuals, like Beyoncé and Steve Jobs, had already made it big.While working as a secretary for the London office of Amnesty International, Rowling was fired for daydreaming too much about Harry Potter, and her severance check would help her focus on writing for the next few years.During these years, she got married, had a daughter, got divorced, and was diagnosed with clinical depression before finally finishing the book in 1995."When I got to Dallas, I was struggling — sleeping on the floor with six guys in a three-bedroom apartment," Cuban writes in his book "How to Win at the Sport of Business."He went on to study business at Baruch College and served in the Army until the age of 24 when he left to work for Brooks Brothers.Her relationship with Levin eventually ended because he did not want to marry or have children.
I ve never been one for hi-vis.It is not merely vanity, though I admit luminous yellow is just not my colour.It s that too many cyclists see it as a panacea, a fluorescent force-field that will protect them from the dangers of the road, whereas the truth is you can be done up head-to-toe as a highlighter pen and it ll not help you at all if you re always cowering in a driver s blind spot.I don t wear proper cycling gear to ride two miles to the Guardian s Manchester office each day.If it s raining, I ll don a waterproof jacket or, more honestly, take the car .But generally I m in my civvies and so am arguably the prime market for Volvo s new LifePaint, a water-based reflective safety spray , which promises to turn ordinary clothes into beacons when in direct glare of headlights.

A heads-up display, which projects information such as the car's speed and battery life in front of the driver, could prevent drivers from looking at the 15ins display while driving and therefore help them focus on the road.Despite its focus on autonomous technology, the driving experience in the Model 3 “remains enjoyably analogue”, says Car magazine, while the vehicle's acceleration performance easily matches its more expensive sibling, the Model S.Drivers may find themselves using only their right foot to drive the Model 3, thanks to its regenerative braking system, which automatically applies the brakes when coasting in order to charge battery.The batteries themselves come in two different options, says Top Gear - offering a 220-mile-per-charge range or 310 miles per charge.As there are no dials behind the steering wheel to show your road speed, Mashable says you need to focus on the touchscreen in the centre console to see how fast you're going.TechCrunch concludes that the Model 3 "is a well-designed, mid-sized sedan that managed to simplify the Tesla design ethos with luxury in mind and without making it feel any less a part of the Tesla family."

p The NHS has a rotten reputation when it comes to technology.At Davos in January last year, NHS England CEO Simon Stevens announced seven innovation testbeds that will take a different approach to tackling the impending health crisis.Two of the testbeds focused on Internet of Thingstechnology, with Surrey and Borders partnership NHS Foundation Trust using smart devices to help people with dementia stay at home longer and West of England's Academic Health Science Network developing a diabetes digital coach.The other five testbeds weren't as prescriptive: in North East London and in Lancashire and Cumbria, testbeds were looking to support older people with dementia; Heywood, Middleton and Rochdale NHS was working with Google's Verily on prediction and prevention techniques; Sheffield was looking to help people with diabetes, hypertension and other long-term condition treat themselves at home; and the Birmingham and Solihull project was developing tools for managing mental health.That's only expected to increase as demographics skew older, with the number of people 75 or older up by 89 per cent since the mid 1970s.As long term illnesses affect more people – as of 2013, there were 3.2 million people with diabetes – that's expected to increase to four million within the decade.
A year ago, privately held online lenders like Prosper, SoFi, and Avant looked all but certain to go public at the same, if not higher, than the unicorn valuations than their venture investors have assigned them.In an SEC filing yesterday, Lending Club, which announced the surprise departure of its founder and CEO last Monday, revealed that investors who contributed a significant amount of funding for loans are now examining that performance or are otherwise reluctant to invest.But what started out as a disruptive movement known as peer-to-peer was far more novel than what it became, which, in many cases, is a front for whoever is providing some of these startups with capital to lend.While companies operating in this space come with inherent advantages — they use automated loan applications; they have no retail branches; they use electronic data sources and tech-enabled underwriting models that help them to quickly identify a borrower s credit risk –having deep-pocketed friends has made other things easier, like provide funding decisions within 48 to 72 hours.Smartly, some players are already looking to reimagine themselves as broader financial outfits.It also said last month that it s hoping to drum up more investor demand for the debt it originates by starting a hedge fund that will buy its own loans.
