As Anne with an E‘s plucky protagonist embarks on more Prince Edward Island adventures in season 2, some new faces enter the picture, adding a sense of inclusivity and diversity to her world of wonder.In the new batch of episodes that begin Sunday on CBC-TV as well as its streaming app and cbc.ca/watch, fans will see the show’s first black character as well as an LGBTQ storyline.Such elements were never a part of the Canadian novel Anne of Green Gables by Lucy Maud Montgomery, which inspired the show. But as showrunner/creator Moira Walley-Beckett notes, the CBC/Netflix series has always strayed from the source material while still staying true to the essence of Anne.“It’s always been a concern to me that L.M. Montgomery’s world of Avonlea is such a white world when in fact it doesn’t really accurately reflect the diversity that Canada was and is,” Walley-Beckett, a three-time Emmy Award winner, said in a recent phone interview.“So my master plan from the beginning when I first conceived this series was to find a way to genuinely and legitimately reflect the diversity of the nation.”‘Pushing some really important messages’Season 2 will further explore the queer storyline surrounding Aunt Josephine Barry that was lightly touched on in season 1 and will introduce Anne’s new friend Cole, played by Cory Gruter-Andrew.Cole, who is questioning his identity and bullied at school, bonds with Anne over feeling like an outsider.There’s an amazing sense of nervous responsibility.— Cory Gruter-Andrew“I added the character of Cole because so many kids are exploring their identity and it’s such a ripe time of confusion and difficulty and isolation in school,” Walley-Beckett said.“And I wanted to represent that, that which is true — in the world, in that time period or any time period.”Gruter-Andrew feels the Cole storyline is “pushing some really important messages with it.”“Playing a character like Cole, it means so much to me. There’s an amazing sense of nervous responsibility in a very good way,” said Gruter-Andrew, 17, who lives in Vancouver.“It just feels really good to be able to represent those who feel like they might not be heard or who are going through the same things that Cole is going through and being able to relate to Cole.”Exploring the BogMeanwhile, Anne’s schoolmate Gilbert is working on a steamship alongside Sebastian, a Trinidadian sailor, played by Canadian actor Dalmar Abuzeid.Walley-Beckett said she wanted to put Gilbert on the steamship in order for him to have a bigger perspective of the world.It’s not really taught in schools and most people don’t know about it.— Moira Walley-BeckettIn researching about Canada and P.E.I. in the Victorian era, Walley-Beckett and her team discovered the Bog, which was a community just outside of Charlottetown mostly populated by freed slaves and immigrants.“It’s not really taught in schools and most people don’t know about it and we determined that we absolutely wanted to make it part of our story,” she said, “and it’s been really relevant to our story and really cool to bring it to life with historical accuracy.”Walley-Beckett said she tried to make the Sebastian storyline as historically accurate as possible and hired Shernold Edwards, whose family is from Trinidad, to help write it.“There’s an opportunity to provide a platform for greater conversations,” said Walley-Beckett, who has an all-female writers room that is diverse in terms of race and sexuality.“It’s exciting to me to think that multi-generations of families are going to sit down and discuss this subject matter, and that it’s being presented in an accessible way full of kindness and forgiveness and empathy and compassion.”by Victoria Ahearn | The Canadian Press Advertisement Advertisement Twitter Facebook Advertisement Login/Register With: LEAVE A REPLY Cancel replyLog in to leave a comment Anne and her friends return to CBC-TV this weekend.

New Delhi: Acting as a profession may be associated with stardom, money, glamour and glitz, but Aditya Roy Kapoor says it is an “unsure” space to be in as it is impossible for an artiste to prepare a road map to success. Aditya, 33, who started his journey as a VJ and went on to feature in supporting roles until his breakthrough in “Aashiqui 2”, believes an actor is out of job once the film is wrapped. “As an actor technically when you are off a film, you are out of a job. An actor goes from job to job. By virtue, acting is an unsure profession. You generally can’t have a road map as an actor. Also Read – I have personal ambitions now: Priyanka “It is impossible to decide where will you be in about five years. I don’t know where I will be in five months from now. And I believe that is what keeps us on our toes and excited,” the actor told PTI in an interview. Getting opportunities to showcase one’s acting talent, especially post failures, is hard, but Aditya says it is important to not put the actors in a spot as filmmaking is a team effort. “If a film does not do well there is a certain period when you do feel low. It affects you because you put in a lot of effort. Everybody in the team puts a lot of energy. But again films are a collective process. It is not one person’s victory or one person’s failure. It is important to keep that in consideration,” he adds. Also Read – Salman Khan remembers actor Vinod Khanna The actor, whose last two solo outings — “Fitoor” and “Ok Jaanu” — did not strike a right chord with the audience, says his love for the craft helps him in bouncing back. “What keeps me going is the desire to do it again. Acting is something I love doing. Failure of a film doesn’t diminish my love for acting. An opportunity to work with a new director, a new script keeps me excited. “I believe one is not going to get anywhere by sitting and planning too much. The point is to keep doing and what will happen will happen,” he adds. Aditya is looking forward to the release Dharma Productions’ pre-Independence set love story “Kalank”. The actor says he accepted the role of Dev because he had never worked in a period drama. “The setting of the film was very different from what I had done in the past. I was excited about it but also fearful as I was initially not sure about what I need to bring to the role in this kind of setting. “Trying to imagine yourself as someone who is born in a completely different era was challenging. Dev, as a character, made me feel I was in an uncharted territory which is nice for an actor. I felt nicely unsure on this film,” he says. The actor is currently working on “Malang” directed by Mohit Suri and Anurag Basu’s untitled anthology series, which features him opposite Sanya Malhotra. “I never planned this spate of work. I just happened to be in a position where these films came to me. I am really excited about the work I am doing now. I am working with the directors I admire. So saying yes to these films was a no-brainer.” Aditya has also signed on to star in “Sadak 2” alongside “Kalank” co-stars Alia Bhatt, Sanjay Dutt and Pooja Bhatt. “Kalank”, directed by Abhishek Varman and also featuring Madhuri Dixit Nene, and Varun Dhawan, releases Wednesday.

Sears Canada’s plan to pay out millions in bonuses to keep execs and key staff on board while not paying severance to laid-off workers is being met with shock and disbelief.“It definitely should not go to them,” said Marinella Gonzalez, who worked as a planner at the retailer’s head office for 18 years before getting laid off in June with no severance.“This situation happened because of mismanagement, and it should not be the workers that have to pay for that.”Gonzalez said more needs to be done to protect and prioritize worker rights when companies get into trouble.“This is not the Canadian way…. To be treated in this way is absolutely unacceptable. I think our government needs to step in and these corporations need to smarten up.”Ken Eady, who spent 30 years at Sears before retiring, said news of the bonuses while not paying severances was just the latest development in a terrible situation.“To see people being paid what might be millions of dollars in bonuses for staying seems so out of balance and so unreasonable that it’s beyond the pale,” said Eady, who now works to protect the pensions of retired Sears employees at the independent SCRG retiree association.Sears Canada got court permission on Thursday to pay $9.2 million in retention bonuses as part of a compromise with retired employees that will see the company continue making some benefit and pension payments until Sept. 30.The retailer had initially asked the court for permission to immediately halt payments for pension, health and dental benefits for laid off employees, retirees and surviving spouses due to a severe cash crunch.Justice Glenn Hainey wrote in his approval of the $9.2 million in payments that the details should remain confidential. But the company estimated when it sought court protection in June that it would need to pay $7.6 million for key employees at head office and $1.6 million for managers of stores that are scheduled to be closed under the restructuring.Sears Canada spokesman Joel Shaffer said the payments are common during the creditor protection process, and are designed to keep key employees motivated with performance indicators and incentives to successfully close stores.He said the payments are designed to support the best possible outcome for the business and stakeholders, and that the situation could worsen without them.Along with approving the deal between the company and former employees, Hainey also gave Sears Canada the green light to immediately proceed with reaching out to potential buyers while it’s under court protection from its creditors.Sears Canada shocked many employees when it announced in June that it planned to close 59 locations across the country and cut approximately 2,900 jobs, without severance, while under the Companies’ Creditors Arrangement Act.Employment lawyer Susan Ursel, whose firm represents more than 17,000 non-unionized former and current employees, said Thursday they continue to push for temporary hardship fund for those who are in dire need of cash and health benefits.

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and U.S. Vice President Mike Pence are expected to discuss Huawei in a meeting in Ottawa today.Five EyesCanada, the U.K. and New Zealand are still deciding what to do about Huawei while Australia has banned the firm from 5G. In the U.S., President Donald Trump is moving to restrict Huawei from doing business with American companies. “If Trump calls me, ‘I may not answer’: Huawei founder defiant in storm that threatens his company’s survival” is locked If Trump calls me, ‘I may not answer’: Huawei founder defiant in storm that threatens his company’s survival U.S. ‘not ready’ to make a trade deal with China, Trump says Nokia in talks to sell 5G gear to telcos as decision on Huawei looms Huawei has repeatedly stated it’s an independent company and that its technologies are secure. Executives have invited doubting parties to inspect their network and codes.For Lind, the facts surrounding Huawei’s threat to Canada’s communications are “pretty evident.” He referred to the arrest of the firm’s Chief Financial Officer Meng Wanzhou in Vancouver last year, saying that the Chinese government’s deep interest in her release shows how close they are to the firm.Company analysts have predicted that a ban on Huawei from 5G core networks is likely, adding that it would pose little or no threat to existing carriers’ short-term spending plans. Rogers does not have Huawei in its 5G equipment, partnering with Ericsson AB instead.Rogers competitors Telus Corp. and BCE Inc. do use Huawei equipment though have not yet selected their 5G vendors. Telus came out in defence of Huawei earlier this year, saying that the Chinese equipment maker has been good for Canada and a ban could potentially add to 5G costs and delay its roll-out.Bloomberg.com Huawei Technologies Co. poses too big of a threat to Canada and should be banned from its 5G network, according to the vice chairman of Rogers Communications Inc.While Huawei is cheaper and sophisticated compared with other alternatives, its close relationship to the Chinese government is troubling, Philip Lind said. The company would be obliged to do the government’s bidding, he said.The idea of Huawei controlling, or potentially controlling our communication system in Canada is crazyPhilip Lind “The idea of Huawei controlling, or potentially controlling our communication system in Canada is crazy,” Lind said in a TV interview with BNN Bloomberg. “I don’t think they should be allowed to.”The Canadian government is still mulling whether to ban Huawei from its 5G telecommunications system due to potential security challenges. No deadline has been made on the ruling though its Five Eyes intelligence allies remain divided on the issue.

At a press conference in New York, Kjell Magne Bondevik, Secretary-General Kofi Annan’s Special Humanitarian Envoy for the Horn of Africa, stressed how important it was for people not to forget what was happening in the Horn of Africa despite the various other global flashpoints, including Afghanistan and Darfur.“My main message today to you is that the crisis at the Horn of Africa is not over; despite relief in some areas as the result of the recent rainy season, the overall humanitarian situation in the Horn continues to be of concern,” he said.“We estimate about 8 million people at the Horn to be in need of humanitarian assistance, mainly of course food and water, and 15 million are at risk in the five countries covered by my mandate, which is Kenya, Ethiopia, Eritrea, Somalia and Djibouti.”He went on to say that in some districts of Kenya 30 per cent of the children are malnourished, highlighting also that the overall region has suffered droughts in four of the last six years.“I want to state that it is so important that the international community is aware of the situation, that they will contribute more economically so we can run our programmes. We are in need of support, the crisis is not over, the rain is of course helping but it came too late and too little to avoid a crisis.”He also pointed to a link between the immediate humanitarian relief on the one hand, and the medium and longer term development objects on the other. People of the region must be prepared to respond to new droughts “in a better way than they have done,” he said, adding that “of course the main responsibility are on the authorities of these countries themselves.”Mr. Bondevik, a former Norwegian Prime Minister, was appointed to the UN post in February and last month wrapped up a trip to the five countries, during which he made several visits to the field to see first-hand the impact of the recurrent droughts. In early April the UN launched an appeal requesting $443 million in assistance for the region.

In its latest results, Russian iron ore and steel major Metalloinvest says state works company Glavgosexpertiza has provided a positive assessment of a cyclical and continuous transportation system project at its Lebedinsky iron ore mine (LGOK). The detailed engineering, design, mining and preparatory works are ongoing. To finance this project, the company signed an agreement with Crédit Agricole CIB for a 12-year loan in the amount of €72 million, which is guaranteed by export credit agency Euler Hermes Aktiengesellschaft (Germany). The funds will be allocated to purchase equipment from TAKRAF GmbH (Germany). The Company has also developed technical solutions for a comprehensive development of premium products at LGOK.In addition, as part of the development of the open-pit iron ore mine Mikhailovsky (MGOK), work continues on the construction of a crushing and conveyor facility. Glavgosexpertiza provided a positive assessment of the conveyor on the south-eastern side of the quarry, where the supply of equipment and construction and installation works are ongoing. For the conveyor on the north-eastern side of the quarry, an agreement was signed for the execution of design and exploration works. Work is underway to agree a contract for the supply of equipment. About 6% of the capital expenditure for 2018 was used to finance this development project.The IPCC system at Lebedinsky GOK will expand the mine’s capacity to 55 Mt/y and is scheduled for completion by the second quarter of 2020. The second agreement of intent to collaborate also concerns the supply of an IPCC system with the goal of expanding the Mikhailovsky GOK’s mine capacity to 35 Mt/y and is scheduled for completion by the first quarter of 2022.The expansion and efficiency improvements implemented at these mines will enable METALLOINVEST to continue to extract high quality and easily-beneficiated iron ore with a view to ensuring the long-term and sustainable production of required high-quality iron-ore concentrate. The capital and operational costs of a mine directly depend on the material’s transportation system and the implementation of an IPCC system at both mines allows for a substantial decrease in iron ore production and transport costs through significant efficiency improvements and the down-sizing of mine fleets.

An unconfirmed photo has surfaced, claiming to be of a new edition of the iPad 3. There’s no need to hold onto your socks, though. This picture shows one and only one difference from the iPad 3 that everyone has come to know and love: the Lightning port. This is the same connector that was introduced with the iPhone 5.It is expected that this refresh will contain very minor updates, both with hardware and software. Obviously, for the next several months all the real attention will be turned toward the iPad Mini, which is expected to be revealed at a highly touted Apple event tomorrow, October 23.It is at that very event that the new full-size iPad is also expected to make its presence known. The news will likely be swept under the rugs of most major news outlets, but it does give Apple the enviable position of being able to have two “brand new” tablet products on the market in time for the holiday shopping season.The new 9.7-inch iPads are expected to retain the same price as the current models, ranging from $499 to $699 for the WiFi models and $629 to $829 for those equipped with high-speed LTE mobile data.As for the price of the iPad Mini, that remains anyone’s guess, though many estimates peg it around a $250 to $300 sweet spot.Just in case all that isn’t enough for you, it’s also rumored that tomorrow’s event will be a launching pad for an entirely new slate of Mac computers, including ones that use the iPad’s heralded Retina Display technology.In other words, tomorrow is a big day.

Des problèmes d’incompatibilités avec les cartes Free MobileD’après de nombreux messages postés sur des forums, les clients Free mobile subiraient des “dysfonctionnements” avec leurs cartes SIM. En cause, une nouvelle génération de carte avec une technologie différente. Mais la situation reste confuse.Les forums croulent sous les témoignages de clients Free Mobile qui n’arrivent pas à faire fonctionner leur nouvelle carte SIM Free avec leur ancien téléphone. Selon les témoignages, certaines cartes seraient en effet incompatibles avec certains modèles de smartphones, qui afficheraient alors “carte sim non compatible avec le téléphone”. Mais chaque cas est pour l’instant particulier, et Free Mobile n’a encore fait aucun commentaire pour éclaircir la situation. Comme le note itespresso.fr, les cartes à problèmes seraient celles de “nouvelles génération”, nommée cartes UICC pour Universal Integrated Circuit Card. “C’est l’alimentation électrique de cette mémoire flash à portes NAND et du microcontrôleur embarqué dans les cartes qui serait à l’origine du problème”, avance quant à lui le site Silicon.fr. Il semble que les cartes de nouvelle génération soient alimentées en électricité avec une tension de 5 volts alors que les anciennes sont alimentées en 3 volts. D’où la pagaille semée quand Free livre à la fois des cartes anciennes et nouvelles générations. Ces nouvelles cartes ont pour intérêt d’introduire la compatibilité avec les services sans contact (protocole NFC) et d’intégrer davantage de mémoire Flash (250 numéros enregistrables dans ce cas contre seulement 20 avec l’ancienne SIM). Ainsi, elles n’arriveraient pas à faire fonctionner certains modèles et notamment les iPhone 4S, pourtant très récents si l’on en croit les messages postés. Néanmoins, pas moyen de lister les téléphones compatibles, ils peuvent aussi bien être sous Android que sous iOs, être récents ou vieux.Le 13 février 2012 à 15:50 • Maxime Lambert

Kolkata: Police have arrested two contractors, who had assaulted Sheikh Nazimuddin, Vice-Chairman of North Dum Dum Municipality on Wednesday afternoon.The civic authorities have cancelled the licences of the two contractors. Locals staged a demonstration on the road and put up a blockade, demanding immediate arrest of the contractors, who had heckled their beloved leader. Saugata Roy, Trinamool Congress MP went to the spot and brought the situation under control. Nizamuddin said he met the contractors – Tapas and Bapi, who were engaged in laying an underground pipeline in his ward. As there was inordinate delay in completing the work, he asked to expedite the work and complete it. Also Read – Heavy rain hits traffic, flightsThe contractors told him that they would not work and when Nizamuddin was going towards the chamber of a municipal engineer, they attacked him from behind.As the news spread, locals came out on the street and protested against the contractor raj. They demanded stern actions against the two contractors. They put up a road blockade affecting traffic movement. A large contingent of police from Nimta police station arrived at the spot and tried to pacify the residents. The road blocks were later lifted.

This story appears in the February 2011 issue of . Subscribe » Enroll Now for Free January 25, 2011 Slideshow: 10 New iPad Productivity AppsIt turns out neither your smartphone nor your laptop should be jealous of your sleek new iPad. But those big, old three-ring binders that have always held performance reports and sales charts? Well, their days are numbered.Tablets such as the Apple iPad, Samsung Galaxy and Dell Streak are having a surprising effect at the office.”It’s much better than a binder,” says Sanju Bansal, COO of MicroStrategy, a Vienna, Va., company that develops business intelligence software for the iPad and other devices. MicroStrategy bought iPads for 1,370 of its 2,000 employees. “It’s better than having to go through 50 to 100 sheets of paper in a binder. You get full access to information and can share it more quickly.”A laptop can do roughly the same thing, but tablets may be more culturally accepted in the workplace. “There’s something very human about the tablet that isn’t human about the laptop,” Bansal says. “When you open a laptop in a meeting, it’s like you are erecting a cultural barrier between yourself and others. Tablets already have the cultural acceptance of paper.”MicroStrategy is seeing its customers adopt the iPad initially at the executive levels before it trickles down. Bansal tells of a retailer equipping its store managers with iPads to keep them on the move and a hospitality company that uses them to help hotel managers get out from behind their front desks.Phil Libin, CEO of Evernote, which adapted its multimedia organizer, tagging and storage app for the iPad, says his Mountain View, Calif., company sees tablets’ appeal to a new type of user.”We don’t think of business users as any different from consumers,” Libin says. “It appeals to the modern knowledge worker.”

Until recently, most business and financial systems had product-focused designs while records and fields maintained basic customer information, processes, and reporting typically revolved around product-related transactions. In the past, businesses were centered on specific products, but now the focus has shifted to center the business on the customer. The Customer Relationship Management (CRM) system provides the tools and reporting necessary to manage customer information and interactions. In this article, we will take a look at what it takes to implement a CRM system in Odoo 11 as part of an overall business strategy. We will also install the CRM application and setup salespersons that can be assigned to our customers. This article is an excerpt from the book, Working with Odoo 11 – Third Edition by Greg Moss. In this book, you will learn to configure, manage, and customize your Odoo system. Using CRM as a business strategy It is critical that the sales people share account knowledge and completely understand the features and capabilities of the system. They often have existing tools that they have relied on for many years. Without clear objectives and goals for the entire sales team, it is likely that they will not use the tool. A plan must be implemented to spend time training and encouraging the sharing of knowledge to successfully implement a CRM system. Installing the CRM application If you have not installed the CRM module, log in as the administrator and then click on the Apps menu. In a few seconds, the list of available apps will appear. The CRM will likely be in the top-left corner: Click on Install to set up the CRM application. Look at the CRM Dashboard Like with the installation of the Sales application, Odoo takes you to the Discuss menu. Click on Sales to see the new changes after installing the CRM application. New to Odoo 10 is an improved CRM Dashboard that provides you a friendly welcome message when you first install the application. You can use the dashboard to get an overview of your sales pipelines and get easy access to the most common actions within CRM. Assigning the sales representative or account manager In Odoo 10, like in most CRM systems, the sales representative or account manager plays an important role. Typically, this is the person that will ultimately be responsible for the customer account and a satisfactory customer experience. While most often a company will use real people as their salespeople, it is certainly possible to instead have a salesperson record refer to a group, or even a sub-contracted support service. We will begin by creating a salesperson that will handle standard customer accounts. Note that a sales representative is also a user in the Odoo system. Create a new salesperson by going to the Settings menu, selecting Users, and then clicking the Create button. The new user form will appear. We have filled in the form with values for a fictional salesperson, Terry Zeigler. The following is a screenshot of the user’s Access Rights tab: Specifying the name of the user You specify the username. Unlike some systems that provide separate first name and last name fields, with Odoo you specify the full name within a single field. Email address Beginning in Odoo 9, the user and login form prompts for email as opposed to username. This practice has continued in Odoo version 10 as well. It is still possible to use a user name instead of email address, but given the strong encouragement to use email address in Odoo 9 and Odoo 10, it is possible that in future versions of Odoo the requirement to provide an email address may be more strictly enforced. Access Rights The Access Rights tab lets you control which applications the user will be able to access. By default, Odoo will specify Mr.Ziegler as an employee so we will accept that default. Depending on the applications you may have already installed or dependencies Odoo may add in various releases, it is possible that you will have other Access Rights listed. Sales application settings When setting up your sales people in Odoo 10, you have three different options on how much access an individual user has to the sales system: User: Own Documents Only This is the most restrictive access to the sales application. A user with this access level is only allowed to see the documents they have entered themselves or which have been assigned to them. They will not be able to see Leads assigned to other salespeople in the sales application. User: All Documents With this setting, the user will have access to all documents within the sales application. Manager The Manager setting is the highest access level in the Odoo sales system. With this access level, the user can see all Leads as well as access the configuration options of the sales application. The Manager setting also allows the user to access statistical reports. We will leave the Access Rights options unchecked. These are used when working with multiple companies or with multiple currencies. The Preferences tab consists of the following options: Language and Timezone Odoo allows you to select the language for each user. Currently, Odoo supports more than 20 language translations. Specifying the Timezone field allows Odoo to coordinate the display of date and time on messages. Leaving Timezone blank for a user will sometimes lead to unpredictable behavior in the Odoo software. Make sure you specify a timezone when creating a user record. Email Messages and Notifications In Odoo 7, messaging became a central component of the Odoo system. In version 10, support has been improved and it is now even easier to communicate important sales information between colleagues. Therefore, determining the appropriate handling of email, and circumstances in which a user will receive email, is very important. The Email Messages and Notifications option lets you determine when you will receive email messages from notifications that come to your Odoo inbox. For our example, we have chosen All Messages. This is now the new default setting in Odoo 10. However, since we have not yet configured an email server, or if you have not configured an email server yourself, no emails will be sent or received at this stage. Let’s review the user options that will be available in communicating by email. Never: Selecting Never suppresses all email messaging for the user. Naturally, this is the setting you will wish to use if you do not have an email server configured. This is also a useful option for users that simply want to use the built-in inbox inside Odoo to retrieve their messages. All Messages (discussions, emails, followed system notifications): This option sends an email notification for any action that would create an entry in your Odoo inbox. Unlike the other options, this action can include system notifications or other automated communications. Signature The Signature section allows you to customize the signature that will automatically be appended to Odoo-generated messages and emails. Manually setting the user password You may have noticed that there is no visible password field in the user record. That is because the default method is to email the user an account verification they can use to set their password. However, if you do not have an email server configured, there is an alternative method for setting the user password. After saving the user record, use the Change Password button at the top of the form. A form will then appear allowing you to set the password for the user. Now in Odoo 10, there is a far more visible button available at the top left of the form. Just click the Change Password button. Assigning a salesperson to a customer Now that we have set up our salesperson, it is time to assign the salesperson their first customer. Previously, no salesperson had been assigned to our one and only customer, Mike Smith. So let’s go to the Sales menu and then click on Mike Smith to pull up his customer record and assign him Terry Ziegler as his salesperson. The following screenshot is of the customer screen opened to assign a salesperson: Here, we have set the sales person to Terry Zeigler. By assigning your customers a salesperson, you can then better organize your customers for reports and additional statistical analysis. Understanding Your Pipeline Prior to Odoo 10, the CRM application primarily was a simple collection of Leads and opportunities. While Odoo still uses both Leads and opportunities as part of the CRM application, the concept of a Pipeline now takes center stage. You use the Pipeline to organize your opportunities by what stage they are within your sales process. Click on Your Pipeline in the Sales menu to see the overall layout of the Pipeline screen: In the preceding Pipeline forms, one of the first things to notice is that there are default filters applied to the view. Up in the search box, you will see that there is a filter to limit the records in this view to the Direct Sales team as well as a My Opportunities filter. This effectively limits the records so you only see your opportunities from your primary sales team. Removing the My Opportunities filter will allow you to see opportunities from other salespeople in your organization. Creating new opportunity In Odoo 10, a potential sale is defined by creating a new opportunity. An opportunity allows you to begin collecting information about the scope and potential outcomes for a sale. These opportunities can be created from new Leads, or an opportunity can originate from an existing customer. For our real-world example, let’s assume that Mike Smith has called and was so happy with his first order that he now wants to discuss using Silkworm for his local sports team. After a short conversation we decide to create an opportunity by clicking the Create button. You can also use the + buttons within any of the pipeline stages to create an opportunity that is set to that stage in the pipeline. In Odoo 10, the CRM application greatly simplified the form for entering a new opportunity. Instead of bringing up the entire opportunity form with all the fields you get a simple form that collects only the most important information. The following screenshot is of a new opportunity form: Opportunity Title The title of your opportunity can be anything you wish. It is naturally important to choose a subject that makes it easy to identify the opportunity in a list. This is the only field required to create an opportunity in Odoo 10. Customer This field is automatically populated if you create an opportunity from the customer form. You can, however, assign a different customer if you like. This is not a required field, so if you have an opportunity that you do not wish to associate with a customer, that is perfectly fine. For example, you may leave this field blank if you are attending a trade show and expect to have revenue, but do not yet have any specific customers to attribute to the opportunity. Expected revenue Here, you specify the amount of revenue you can expect from the opportunity if you are successful. Inside the full opportunity form there is a field in which you can specify the percentage likelihood that an opportunity will result in a sale. These values are useful in many statistical reports, although they are not required to create an opportunity. Increasingly, more reports look to expected revenue and percentage of opportunity completions. Therefore, depending on your reporting requirements you may wish to encourage sales people to set target goals for each opportunity to better track conversion. Rating Some opportunities are more important than others. You can choose none, one, two, or three stars to designate the relative importance of this opportunity. Introduction to sales stages At the top of the Kanban view, you can see the default stages that are provided by an Odoo CRM installation. In this case, we see New, Qualified, Proposition, and Won. As an opportunity moves between stages, the Kanban view will update to show you where each opportunity currently stands. Here, we can see because this Sports Team Project has just been entered in the New column. Viewing the details of an opportunity If you click the three lines at the top right of the Sports Team Project opportunity in the Kanban view, which appears when you hover the mouse over it, you will see a pop-up menu with your available options. The following screenshot shows the available actions on an opportunity: Actions you can take on an opportunity Selecting the Edit option takes you to the opportunity record and into edit mode for you to change any of the information. In addition, you can delete the record or archive the record so it will no longer appear in your pipeline by default. The color palette at the bottom lets you color code your opportunities in the Kanban view. The small stars on the opportunity card allow you to highlight opportunities for special consideration. You can also easily drag and drop the opportunity into other columns as you work through the various stages of the sale. Using Odoo’s OpenChatter feature One of the biggest enhancements brought about in Odoo 7 and expanded on in later versions of Odoo was the new OpenChatter feature that provides social networking style communication to business documents and transactions. As we work our brand new opportunity, we will utilize the OpenChatter feature to demonstrate how to communicate details between team members and generate log entries to document our progress. The best thing about the OpenChatter feature is that it is available for nearly all business documents in Odoo. It also allows you to see a running set of logs of the transactions or operations that have affected the document. This means everything that applies here to the CRM application can also be used to communicate in sales and purchasing, or in communicating about a specific customer or vendor. Changing the status of an opportunity For our example, let’s assume that we have prepared our proposal and made the presentation. Bring up the opportunity by using the right-click Menu in the Kanban view or going into the list view and clicking the opportunity in the list. It is time to update the status of our opportunity by clicking the Proposition arrow at the top of the form: Notice that you do not have to edit the record to change the status of the opportunity. At the bottom of the opportunity, you will now see a logged note generated by Odoo that documents the changing of the opportunity from a new opportunity to a proposition. The following screenshot is of OpenChatter displaying a changed stage for the opportunity: Notice how Odoo is logging the events automatically as they take place. Managing the opportunity With the proposal presented, let’s take down some details from what we have learned that may help us later when we come back to this opportunity. One method of collecting this information could be to add the details to the Internal Notes field in the opportunity form. There is value, however, in using the OpenChatter feature in Odoo to document our new details. Most importantly, using OpenChatter to log notes gives you a running transcript with date and time stamps automatically generated. With the Generic Notes field, it can be very difficult to manage multiple entries. Another major advantage is that the OpenChatter feature can automatically send messages to team members’ inboxes updating them on progress. let’s see it in action! Click the Log an Internal note link to attach a note to our opportunity. The following screenshot is for creating a note: The activity option is unique to the CRM application and will not appear in most documents. You can use the small icons at the bottom to add a smiley, attach a document, or open up a full featured editor if you are creating a long note. The full featured editor also allows you to save templates of messages/notes you may use frequently. Depending on your specific business requirements, this could be a great time saver. When you create a note, it is attached to the business document, but no message will be sent to followers. You can even attach a document to the note by using the Attach a File feature. After clicking the Log button, the note is saved and becomes part of the OpenChatter log for that document. Following a business document Odoo brings social networking concepts into your business communication. Fundamental to this implementation is that you can get automatic updates on a business document by following the document. Then, whenever there is a note, action, or a message created that is related to a document you follow, you will receive a message in your Odoo inbox. In the bottom right-hand corner of the form, you are presented with the options for when you are notified and for adding or removing followers from the document. The following screenshot is of the OpenChatter follow options: In this case, we can see that both Terry Zeigler and Administrator are set as followers for this opportunity. The Following checkbox at the top indicates that I am following this document. Using the Add Followers link you can add additional users to follow the document. The items followers are notified are viewed by clicking the arrow to the right of the following button. This brings up a list of the actions that will generate notifications to followers: The checkbox next to Discussions indicates that I should be notified of any discussions related to this document. However, I would not be notified, for example, if the stage changed. When you send a message, by default the customer will become a follower of the document. Then, whenever the status of the document changes, the customer will receive an email. Test out all your processes before integrating with an email server. Modifying the stages of the sale We have seen that Odoo provides a default set of sales stages. Many times, however, you will want to customize the stages to best deliver an outstanding customer experience. Moving an opportunity through stages should trigger actions that create a relationship with the customer and demonstrate your understanding of their needs. A customer in the qualification stage of a sale will have much different needs and much different expectations than a customer that is in the negotiation phase. For our case study, there are sometimes printing jobs that are technically complex to accomplish. With different jerseys for a variety of teams, the final details need to go through a final technical review and approval process before the order can be entered and verified. From a business perspective, the goal is not just to document the stage of the sales cycle; the primary goal is to use this information to drive customer interactions and improve the overall customer experience. To add a stage to the sales process, bring up Your Pipeline and then click on the ADD NEW COLUMN area in the right of the form to bring up a little popup to enter the name for the new stage: After you have added the column to the sales process, you can use your mouse to drag and drop the columns into the order that you wish them to appear. We are now ready to begin the technical approval stage for this opportunity. Drag and drop the Sports Team Project opportunity over to the Technical Approval column in the Kanban view. The following screenshot is of the opportunities Kanban view after adding the technical approval stage: We now see the Technical Approval column in our Kanban view and have moved over the opportunity. You will also notice that any time you change the stage of an opportunity that there will be an entry that will be created in the OpenChatter section at the bottom of the form. In addition to the ability to drag and drop an opportunity into a new stage, you can also change the stage of an opportunity by going into the form view. Closing the sale After a lot of hard work, we have finally won the opportunity, and it is time to turn this opportunity into a quotation. At this point, Odoo makes it easy to take that opportunity and turn it into an actual quotation. Open up the opportunity and click the New Quotation tab at the top of the opportunity form: Unlike Odoo 8, which prompts for more information, in Odoo 10 you get taken to a new quote with the customer information already filled in: We installed the CRM module, created salespeople, and proceeded to develop a system to manage the sales process. To modify stages in the sales cycle and turn the opportunity into a quotation using Odoo 11, grab the latest edition Working with Odoo 11 – Third Edition.

Source = NYC & Company Shanghai and New York City announce city-to-city tourism partnershipShanghai Municipal Tourism Administration (SMTA) and NYC & Company, New York City’s official destination marketing organization, today announced a first-ever city-to-city partnership to boost tourism between Shanghai and New York City. The new, two-year alliance includes a reciprocal outdoor media advertising exchange in Shanghai and New York City, the sharing of best practices in tourism marketing between the two destinations, and other initiatives designed to stimulate travel between the two cities during this year’s “U.S.-China Tourism Year” and beyond. This marks the first time New York City’s tourism organization has inked a partnership of this kind in China. Chairman of SMTA Yang Jinsong and NYC & Company CEO Fred Dixon signed the agreement this morning at a press conference held at The Peninsula Shanghai.“2016 is the ‘China-U.S. Tourism Year,’ designated by Chinese President Xi Jinping and United States President Barack Obama. During this year, the city-to-city tourism partnership is especially of great significance for both New York City and Shanghai. Shanghai Municipal Tourism always attaches tremendous importance to the cooperation and mutual benefits with New York City and other world famous tourist cities,” said Chairman of SMTA Yang Jinsong. “In alliance with New York City, we hope to call for a joint force from other world-famous tourist cities to share experiences and theories of tourism development at the appropriate time,” continued Chairman Yang.“China is a crucially important market for New York City tourism—with our new city-to-city partnership with Shanghai, we will be well positioned during the U.S.-China Tourism Year and beyond to capitalize on more visitation from China’s largest city. We’re incredibly honored to be working with SMTA on this worthwhile initiative to boost reciprocal tourism between Shanghai and New York City,” said Fred Dixon, president and CEO of NYC & Company.Shanghai’s tourism industry has been flourishing in recent years, generating up to 350 billion RMB Yuan in revenue in 2015, a 2 percent increase year-on-year. This achievement is closely related to the improvement of the city environment and travelling elements. Recently, the world’s leading travel media company, Lonely Planet, announced its Best in Asia 2016 list. Shanghai is the only city in mainland China to be named on this list and ranking second place.Beginning today, through the cooperation with the Information Office of Shanghai Municipality, outdoor media promoting New York City and its new global “See it for Yourself” campaign will appear throughout Shanghai in four major subway stations through August 11 (People’s Square, Xujiahui, Shanghai Science & Technology Museumand Xintiandi). Additionally, tonight, the façade of the Citi Bank Wall in Lujiazui will be lit with imagery promoting New York City. Reciprocally, Shanghai will receive 164 bus shelters in New York City from September 26 to October 23 to promote Shanghai.During the press event today, NYC & Company also announced that international acclaimed pianist and New York City transplant Lang Lang will serve as New York City’s first-ever NYC Cultural Tourism Ambassador. Lang Lang, who has a home in Manhattan, and is a United Nations Messenger of Peace, announced his partnership with NYC & Company via a video statement this morning in Shanghai.“I’m so excited to see New York City and Shanghai come together to promote two of the world’s destinations. New York City is a special place for me, one that I now call one of my homes. It is a great honor and privilege for me to serve as New York City’s new Cultural Tourism Ambassador for China—New York City inspires me every single day and I look forward to promoting this exciting City to my audiences around the world over the next year,” said Lang Lang.As part of the new tourism push, NYC & Company will begin promoting more single-destination, longer, flexible and personalized FIT (foreign independent travel) trips to New York City (instead of multi-city tours that the Chinese have been accustomed to in the past), mirroring a new trend in Chinese travel. To that end, NYC & Company is collaborating with Ctrip, Utour, L&L, China Eastern and New York Hilton Midtown to create and promote this new product, being positioned and sold as “Weiwo NYC” travel packages in the China market. UnionPay is also joining forces with NYC & Company by promoting the product to their 5.4 billion cardholders in China, on their official website as well as through their social networks such as Weibo and WeChat.Shanghai has long been a favorite destination for American tourists, and the number of American visitors travelling to Shanghai remains a stable increase in recent years. In 2015, American tourists made 636,377 trips to Shanghai, with year-on-year growth of 0.61 percent. Among all the attractions, they prefer to experience Chinese culture and visit water towns mostly.

called it "sad news for our country"McGahn’s role in seeking to transform the judiciary – he helped select Trump’s two Supreme Court nominees and dozens of picks for lower federal courts – made him a favorite of conservatives who view the endeavor as the most successful project of Trump’s presidency"Don is the most impressive White House Counsel during my time in Washington and I’ve known them all" McConnell who has worked closely with McGahn on confirming conservative judges said in a statement "Don’s significance to the judiciary the White House and the nation cannot be overstated and I look forward to his continued efforts on behalf of our country"White House attorney Emmet Flood a veteran Washington lawyer whom McGahn recruited to join the West Wing in May is seen by most Trump aides as a likely replacement because of his rapport with the president and his knowledge of impeachment proceedings Flood represented Bill Clinton and has begun to prepare for a potential Democratic move against Trump should that party win control of the House this fallMcGahn’s impending departure is widely seen within Trump’s circle as the culmination of frustrations that have come with each new crisis that he has been forced to handle since Trump took office from a scandal over then-national security adviser Michael Flynn’s disclosure of contacts with Russian officials to the many times the president has lashed out about Mueller’s probeStill McGahn has often expressed a sense of accomplishment to allies despite the controversies and turbulence As evidence of conservative success he has pointed in particular to his efforts last year on the nomination of Supreme Court Justice Neil M Gorsuch and on other judicial nominees later approved by the Republican-controlled Senate as well as his work to curb federal regulationsBut McGahn’s tenure has nonetheless been dominated by pressure-filled flash points that have obligated him to respond to the president’s demands and deal with Trump’s anger over an investigation the president has called a "witch hunt"Since April former New York mayor Rudy Giuliani has been serving as the president’s lead outside attorney with a focus on the Russia investigation and has been combative and public in his efforts as McGahn has stayed out of sightMcGahn especially during the beginning of Trump’s term cautioned the president about contacting Justice Department officials and even told associates he was concerned that Trump was doing so without his knowledge The two men would have "spectacular" fights according to a person who witnessed some of themWhen Trump sought the firing of Mueller in June 2017 McGahn threatened to resign over the proposed move according to two people familiar with the exchange McGahn’s warning to the president was first reported by the New York Times and denied by Trump who called it "fake news"Charlie Dent then a GOP congressman from Pennsylvania said in an interview at the time that McGahn "prevented an Archibald Cox moment" referring to the special prosecutor whom President Richard M Nixon ordered fired during the Watergate investigationIn an earlier showdown in March 2017 McGahn urged Attorney General Jeff Sessions to not recuse himself from the Russia probe And the next month Trump asked McGahn to persuade then-FBI Director James Comey to announce that Trump was not personally under investigation but Comey rejected McGahn’s entreatiesIn recent months as he has worked on the Kavanaugh confirmation McGahn’s challenges have only mountedThe president has repeatedly belittled Sessions and in the spring the Justice Department chief told the White House that he might have to leave his job if Trump fired Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein who oversees the Russia investigation according to people familiar with the exchangeSessions made his position known in a phone call with McGahn as Trump’s fury at Rosenstein peaked after the deputy attorney general approved the FBI’s April 9 raid on the president’s personal attorney Michael CohenLike other current and former Trump aides McGahn has met on multiple occasions with Mueller’s team for dozens of hours Throughout that process McGahn has had tense clashes with Trump’s outside attorneys over the Russia inquiry – as well as with then-White House lawyer Ty Cobb who coordinated the White House’s interaction with Mueller’s team – questioning their cooperative strategy in the caseOn Wednesday Trump told reporters he isn’t worried about anything McGahn might have told Mueller’s investigators"We do everything straight; we do everything by the book" Trump saidAs the White House Counsel’s Office prepares for a revamp Trump’s outside legal team for the Russia probe is being led by Giuliani lawyer Jay Sekulow

antagonistic approach to the Russia investigationMcGahn’s struggles in the West Wing have not solely been related to Trump’s conduct but also to his ownEarlier in the year White House Chief of Staff John Kelly and McGahn faced scrutiny over how they handled allegations of spousal abuse against Rob Porter who resigned as staff secretary on Feb 7Kelly in a five-page memo directed to McGahn and others later ordered changes to how security clearances are granted as part of the White House’s response to continued questions about Porter who had access to highly classified material months after the claims by his two ex-wives were reported to the FBIWithin an administration that has had a strained relationship with the GOP McGahn has been known on Capitol Hill and elsewhere as a totem of conservatism – veering each week from managing political and legal eruptions around Trump to private confabs with conservative allies and attorneys to talk through policy and nomineesMcGahn advised Trump to pick Gorsuch at the time a federal appeals court judge in Colorado to fill the Supreme Court opening that the new president inherited and oversaw Gorsuch’s confirmation Trump came close to breaking the record for a new president having a nominee on the court so close to his inaugurationMcGahn also played a big role in helping fill numerous openings in lower federal courts Trump has seen 60 of his nominees already confirmed outdistancing the totals for other presidents at similar points in their tenures Twenty-six of Trump’s confirmations were for nominees to the influential regional courts of appeals far more than President Barack Obama was able to get confirmed early in his termTrump’s nominees have been overwhelmingly white and male and critics claim they are the least diverse collection of nominees since President Ronald Reagan But they fit the mold favored by the conservative legal establishment: relatively young and with a strong track record of judging or other legal experience that provides comfort for predicting their futuresMcGahn has worked with the conservative Federalist Society and the Heritage Foundation to select the nominees He told the Federalist Society last fall that the Trump administration would not waste the opportunity to stock the federal judiciary with judges who take an "originalist" approach to constitutional interpretation that closely follows the text of statutes and looks at the context of laws at the time when they were written"This administration’s mandate on judicial selections is crystal clear: Choose judges in the mold of Justice [Antonin] Scalia Justice [Clarence] Thomas and now Justice Gorsuch" McGahn saidLong before Trump was seen as a viable presidential contender McGahn a former commissioner of the Federal Election Commission became the Trump campaign’s attorney McGahn has told friends that he admires Trump as a Republican outsider and understands his appeal McGahn’s uncle Atlantic City lawyer Patrick McGahn had represented Trump for yearsBefore joining the White House McGahn was a partner at Patton Boggs and later at Jones Day and was counsel to the National Republican Congressional Committee President George W Bush nominated him to serve on the FECMcGahn’s personal views – he is known to lean hard to the right – aligned him during the administration’s first few months with then-Chief of Staff Reince Priebus and then-chief strategist Steve Bannon and he worked with them on projects to overhaul federal regulations and nominate conservatives to the federal benchWhen Priebus and Bannon left the White House McGahn became close with Kelly who has relied on McGahn for advice in trying to bring order to a chaotic environment—This article was written by Robert Barnes Rosalind Helderman and Robert Costa reporters for The Washington Post The Washington Post’s Josh Dawsey and Matt Zapotosky contributed to this reportThe governorship candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party in Osun State Senator Ademola Adeleke has said he was admitted into the university in the United States without presenting his West African School Certificate Examination result Adeleke said this in Ede on Thursday while reacting to the dismissal of the suit filed against his eligibility before Justice David Oladimeji of the Osun State High Court Adeleke who was flanked by some of his mates at the Ede Muslim Grammar School Ede said he was well known during his school days because he loved his schoolmates and loved sports He said “We all went to school and we know that some results would not be released But they may release the remaining results tomorrow Who knows After I sat for the exams my mind was in the US The university I attended did not need our qualification from here I say for their qualifying exam” He said he had been calling aspirants that contested with him for the PDP’s sole ticket and that he had held a meeting with Dr Akin Ogunbiyi in the presence of the National Chairman of the party Prince Uche Secondus and the national organising secretary of the party Adeleke said “I chose to remain quiet since the conclusion of the governorship primary for two reasons; first it is my unchanged belief in party supremacy and utmost respect for the leadership of our great party “The second reason is because the issue of my qualification and eligibility as a governorship candidate has been a subject of litigation until yesterday Now that a judicial pronouncement confirming my qualification and eligibility to contest has been made the time is now right to speak on the matter “For the records let me reiterate the obvious and easily verifiable fact that I attended the Ede Muslim Grammar School between 1979 and 1981 my schoolmates are everywhere and some are even here with me While in school I was a lover of football so I was very popular I was elected the president of the alumni association of this same school until recently” He described those questioning his attendance at the school as “clearly being mischievous and deceptive” Adeleke added “I also must express my gratitude to the judiciary for upholding the truth despite the pressure It is now clear and proven that I did not forge any certificate or testimonial In any case how can I forge a testimonial that simply attests to the fact of my attendance at the school” Booking.
