Uber presented two additional services in Zagreb today – Comfort and XL, which will enable users to choose vehicles of a higher class or vehicles with more space. Uber Comfort is intended for users who need the service of transport in higher class vehicles with drivers who have a minimum of 250 completed journeys and an average rating above 4,9. In addition, users who opt for Uber Comfort will be given the option of declaring preferences about talking to the driver or the temperature in the vehicle. The option will be available to them after they have chosen the Comfort service and set a destination, before the final confirmation of the ride. The minimum amount of driving with the Comfort service is HRK 17, the start fee is HRK 8, the price per minute is HRK 0,80, while the mileage fee is HRK 4,60. By the way, Croatia had the honor of hosting the world premiere of the UberBOAT service, and obviously we are still attractive enough as a destination for the premieres of new UBER services, which certainly contributes to a better image of Croatia. “We are still fully committed to doing business in Croatia. We take our customer feedback seriously and provide them with new options to make their experience better, such as vehicle type options or talking to the driver. By expanding the existing offer in Zagreb, we will meet the specific needs of airline users who often have excess luggage, users who want higher class vehicles, but also those who want to drive without talking, ” said Davor Tremac, Uber’s general manager for Southeast Europe. The second Uber XL service is intended for users who travel in groups and need up to 6 seats. In this way, users are allowed to simply choose Uber XL instead of ordering two X services, which is ultimately more cost-effective for them. With the Uber XL, the minimum driving amount is HRK 20, the start fee is HRK 10, the price per minute is HRK 1,10, and per kilometer is HRK 6. / / / MORE THAN 190 THOUSAND FOREIGN TOURISTS USED UBER DURING THE SUMMER SEASON ON THE CROATIAN COAST As part of the Comfort service, users in Zagreb will have the option of user preferences for the first time in Europe, which means that passengers will be able to tell the driver in advance whether they want to drive without talking and whether they prefer higher or lower temperatures inside the vehicle. / / / UBER AS THE AMBASSADOR OF CROATIAN TOURISM
Imports at the major retail container ports in the US are expected to set record numbers this summer and fall even as the debate over trade and tariffs continues in Washington, the National Retail Federation said.Ports covered by Global Port Tracker handled 1.63 million TEU in April. That was down 5.8 percent from March and up 0.3 percent year-over-year.“Despite an environment where the U.S. administration is enacting measures that could well lead to a trade war with most of its Asian and European trading partners, we see imports continuing to grow,” Ben Hackett, Hackett Associates Founder, said, noting that manufacturers have seen increased orders that reflect solid consumer demand.“This suggests that neither industry nor consumers really believe that President Trump will push through with his proposed tariffs. Let’s hope that they are right,” Hackett added.The first half of 2018 is expected to total 10.2 million TEU, an increase of 3.8 percent over the first half of 2017. The total for 2017 was 20.5 million TEU, up 7.6 percent from 2016’s previous record of 19.1 million TEU.

BOSTON — There’s not much of a better stage for a comeback: Anthony Davis will be making his return to the court against the Boston Celtics at TD Garden Arena on Monday night.The Lakers announced Monday morning that their star big man, who has missed five straight games, was available to come back from a bruised backside that has ailed him since Jan. 7 when he collided mid-air with New York Knicks forward Julius Randle and suffered a hard landing. Although the team said he did not work out on Sunday after the Houston Rockets game, Coach Frank Vogel said Davis’ condition has been gradually improving.The team went 4-1 without its leading scorer (27.1 ppg), rebounder (9.4 rpg) and shot-blocker (2.6 bpg), but will gladly welcome him back into the fold for a matchup with a historic rival that sits at fourth place in the Eastern Conference (27-14).Related Articles Trail Blazers beat Grizzlies in play-in, earn first-round series with the Lakers AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREUCLA alum Kenny Clark signs four-year contract extension with PackersAnother compelling figure in the matchup, Rajon Rondo, remained questionable with a right ring finger avulsion fracture.

Some veterans are not happy with President Trump, and they are using the occasion of Independence Day to let him know.A veteran advocacy group called Common Defense was formed three years ago to oppose Trump. This week, they released a video in conjunction with the Need to Impeach campaign. In the video, veterans and organizers of the group explain that they feel betrayed by Trump, and that they believe American democracy is under attack.Lead organizer Kyle Bibby, who is a Marine Corps veteran, says that the oath members take when joining the military, “establishes our ties to something that is greater than us. I don’t see Donald Trump as someone who is serious about our values, who is serious about his job to serve the American people.”Other veterans included in the video state that the president “should be impeached” for reasons including cruelty, to a “criminal.”One veteran states in the video that he never suspected an American president would collude with a foreign dictator, referencing Russian President Vladimir Putin.Last October, Trump tweeted about billionaire Tom Steyer, the founder of Need to Impeach, “He comes off as a crazed and stumbling lunatic who should be running out of money pretty soon.”
The Florida Supreme Court has made the decision to suspend Broward County Circuit Judge Vegina Hawkins without pay after she was seen on surveillance video grabbing a courthouse employee by the neck and shaking them.The decision was made Friday by the supreme court for the incident which occurred on June 11th.According to the report, Judge Hawkins became upset with the employee for not bringing her, her papers before a hearing that was scheduled later that day.The Investigative Panel of the Commission began investigating the incident after Hawkins brought it to their attention once she found out a complaint had been filed against her.Hawkins told investigators that she did not put her hands on the employee but rather invaded his personal space. After she was shown the video of the incident she admitted to briefly touching the individual but said she felt like she had a friendly relationship with the individual and she did not mean any harm by it.The commission, however, did not believe Hawkins actions towards the employee were in a manner of play:“The Investigative Panel of the Commission does not find Judge Hawkins’ testimony that she was ‘calm’ and ‘not at all angry’ credible, and having reviewed the statements and video evidence, the Panel does not believe that her actions were in ‘jest,’” the recommendation for suspension said. “The Panel is further concerned by Judge Hawkins inability to understand that even in jest, her conduct was wholly inappropriate.”Attorney David Bogenschutz who represented Hawkins wrote back stating that his client took full responsibility for her actions during her hearing and that he believed the punishment was too harsh considering the judges “spotless” background:“She has an unblemished career as a prosecutor and private practitioner, as well as a police officer,” he wrote. “She has been a circuit court judge, at the time of this incident, for approximately six months, beginning what, for all intents and purposes, appears to be an outstanding career on the Circuit Court of the 17th Judicial Circuit.”The supreme court has since reached a decision to suspend the judge without pay.Read formal charges here.

Share Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest After months of anticipation, Congress has reached an agreement to consider the U.S.-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA) which will huge huge implications for agriculture in Ohio and around the country.“Today’s announcement gives us a glimmer of hope that, by the end of this year, Ohio’s farmers will see much needed certainty on the horizon. Growing markets and expanding trade opportunities for our members is a top advocacy priority for the Ohio Corn & Wheat Growers Association. This year we have lobbied hard for USMCA on behalf of our members and are encouraged by the support we’ve seen from Ohio’s congressional delegation to pass this critical deal,” said Tadd Nicholson, Ohio Corn & Wheat Executive Director. “However, our work is not done. We look forward to seeing Ohio’s members of Congress leading the way to final passage of this deal and the implementing legislation that will be required thereafter.”Canada and Mexico are at the top of the list for U.S. agricultural exports and vital markets to maintain.“This is welcome news and a relief for American farmers. Now it’s time to get the bill passed before politics can get in the way. Farmers and ranchers will be watching closely to ensure that their members of Congress are standing up for American agriculture,” said Angela Hofmann, Co-Executive Director of Farmers for Free Trade, the national, bipartisan coalition of America’s leading ag commodity and business groups. “If Congress can come together to pass USMCA it will deliver a measure of certainty farmers badly need right now. Farmers have been struggling in the face of bad weather and unpredictable trade policy. Passing USMCA will guarantee that our farmers’ closest and most important markets, will remain free from tariffs and red tape. NAFTA has been a windfall for American agriculture and USMCA is projected to build on that success by growing farm exports and modernizing ag trade.“We commend Speaker Pelosi, Ambassador Lighthizer and the many Congressional leaders on both side of the aisle who have worked diligently to get to a deal. It’s a great reminder that opening markets for American farmers should never be a partisan issue. We urge both sides to continue to heed the calls of American farmers and quickly pass this agreement.”The statement comes after President Donald Trump penned this tweet.America’s great USMCA Trade Bill is looking good. It will be the best and most important trade deal ever made by the USA. Good for everybody – Farmers, Manufacturers, Energy, Unions – tremendous support. Importantly, we will finally end our Country’s worst Trade Deal, NAFTA!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) December 10, 2019This story will be updated.
AI is Not the Holy Grail of Sales, at Least Not… Digital Marketing Jobs in the Government Sector Related Posts The Dos and Don’ts of Brand Awareness Videos Trends Driving the Loyalty Marketing Industry Text message marketing is one of the more effective ways for small businesses to reach a targeted audience. The main focus with your group texting marketing has to be done very carefully — or you’ll turn your audience off quickly and you’ll be blocked. You’ll want to message your targeted or interested consumers first.Interested ConsumersSecondly — an immense piece of the interested consumers can be those who don’t know a thing about you. These potential customers can be reached with a short message service (SMS) or Group Texting. This service stands out as one of the most cost-efficient ways for a small businesses to strengthen the bond with your customers.Why group texting is extremely effective.Group texting is extremely effective, but it is more effective for certain types of businesses. For example, retail stores and restaurants can get immediate response from text messaging out coupons and special offers. If you can find a way to benefit from text marketing for your business — then you will see results that will grow your bottom line.Image CreditBuilding a text list.It is estimated that 80 percent of adults access the Internet through their smartphones and over 90 percent of smartphone owners open and read every text they get. This means that when you use text marketing services, you are going to have a captive and interested audience. There are anti-spam laws in the United States that make it illegal to send SMS messages to a user who does not want them. While this can sound like an obstacle, it is actually the inspiration you need to build an effective and powerful SMS marketing list. You can put a form on your mobile website that allows people to opt-in to receiving your marketing messages, and you can place information throughout your business that gives people a number they can text to get on your list. While it takes a while to build a marketing list one person at a time; you are actually creating a focused list of people who want your marketing messages and will more than likely act on them when they receive them. This increases the return on investment for your text messaging program considerably. Make tour messages concise and powerful.To create your messages, you can invest in text message marketing software that will help you to craft effective but concise messages. When you get long text messages, you tend to either not read the whole thing or ignore them completely. The same goes for your target audience. If you want your messages to be read, then they need to be concise and get to the point. Develop good timing.A big part of developing marketing programs of any kind for your business is taking the time to understand the best times to send messages to your audience.The well-timed messages.If you run a clothing store, then you might notice that Saturday mornings are when the bulk of your customers make their way out to go shopping. A well-timed text message about your latest special will be much more effective when sent just when your audience is leaving their house. You will never get the timing completely right all of the time, but you need to pay attention to patterns and trends to help you send out effective messages. When it comes to effective text message marketing for small business, timing is everything.Timing really is everything in business.Good timing means that your messages will not be treated like advertising spam, but rather like good information your customers can use. Always be marketing.Have you ever noticed that when you walk into some businesses you get a prompt on your phone to check out the latest coupons and deals? This sort of proactive mobile marketing is extremely effective, and it should be something you use to grow your marketing list. When customers walk into your store, you should automatically send them a message with your latest specials and a number they can text to opt-in to your marketing list.Use best timing for best results.One of the best times to convince a customer to join your SMS marketing list is when they first walk into your store. Remember the personal connection.As you focus on writing concise text messages, you should also remember to use your group texting marketing to engage and build stronger relationships with your customers.Loyalty is everything, whether we’re talking your family or your business.Give the customers who opt-in to your SMS marketing program coupons and special pricing that only they can access. You should also develop a loyalty program using your text service that allows customers to build up points for purchases and get rewards. When every text you send has value, then your customers start to look forward to receiving them. This anticipation lowers the number of people who opt-out of your program, and it makes the customers who react to your texts feel special and appreciated. Focus on the affordability.You can see a significant return on investment (ROI) with text message marketing when you use the right texting service and software. Compared to other forms of marketing such as email, texting is less expensive but reaches a more active audience.Shorter messages.Short text messages sent at the right times throughout the day can increase revenue and strengthen customer loyalty. When you start looking at other forms of mobile marketing, always remember the return you get from texting versus any other type of marketing program. Remember the CTA.Even though your text messages are going to be short, there still needs to be a call to action (CTA) included in each one. Some of the best text messages are just CTAs with a number to text for more information.Find out which “calls to action” will help you the most in your sector of business.It is important to get your customers to take action on every text you send them to increase your ROI. You want to give your customers a reason to recommend their friends join your text list as well.Keep after the cost effective marketing methods.A small business needs to take advantage of as many cost-effective marketing methods as possible, and text message marketing is about as cost-effective as it gets.Get going and cementing your customer lists.By creating a list of consumers who are all interested in receiving your texts, you can send out messages that you know will be read and will most likely be acted upon. Short text messages containing information that is valuable to your customers can help to expand your customer base, strengthen the bond you have with existing customers and make your customers feel like their business is appreciated.
