PNPs Robinson slams PDM for not bringing Service Charge motion in HOA

first_imgFacebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsAppTurks and Caicos, March 24, 2017 – Grand Turk  – If the PNP Administration of the last government term had supported the two motions brought in the House of Assembly to reinstate the receipt of 100% of the Service Charge for hotel workers, by now, these employees would have been almost a year getting fatter pay checks.Yet, despite his party’s lack of support on this in April and October last year, Opposition Appointed Member, Royal Robinson says he has always supported the idea and is blasting the PDM Administration for not dealing with his motion in the last House of Assembly sitting.   “In a move that reeks of hypocrisy, the self proclaimed Best Man for the Job, Premier Cartwright Robinson refused to bring the Service Charge Amendment Bill 2017 for its first reading at the latest sitting of the House of Assembly by closing the proceedings sine die.”Hon Robinson points out in his media release that both parties campaigned on returning 100% service charge to hospitality staffers who currently get less than half of what guests are taxed.   The appointed member said the Premier missed an opportunity to see hospitality workers realizing a 66% increase on service charges.  Hon Royal Robinson warned, lest the Premier finds herself in the category of a ‘Blowhard’, she must take the Bill through all three readings at the next House meeting on March 27.We reached out to Premier Sharlene Robinson for explanation on whether she was flip flopping on the matter of service charge, she said, “It was not raised in the last House of Assembly.  We have not reached the item as yet.  The mover never raised it even when I reordered the Agenda.”Last night, Tourism Minister, Hon Ralph Higgs reportedly informed the Hotel and Tourism Association that they ought prepare because 100% of service charges will be going to hospitality employees; adding that the PDM does not intend to be one term government.#MagneticMediaNews#battleoverservicecharge#RoyalRobinsononservicecharge#sericechargebattleinHOA Hospitality workers eager for return of 100% service charge Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp Related Items:#battleoverservicecharge, #magneticmedianews, #RoyalRobinsononservicecharge, #sericechargebattleinHOA Recommended for youlast_img read more

Wearable Tech 5 Obstacles to Going Mass Market

first_imgOctober 22, 2013 3 min read Opinions expressed by Entrepreneur contributors are their own.center_img Wearable technology is on the path to ubiquity. Devices like Google Glass, Samsung Galaxy Gear and even the rumored Apple iWatch are just the tip of the iceberg.Every day, companies and engineers are dreaming up the next big thing.How quickly wearables become a part of our daily lives will depend on how quickly we can address the obstacles that are still keeping the technology from mass marketization. Here are the top five as I see them:1. Cost. Google Glass alone costs $1,500 and costly wearable products can alienate even early electronics adopters. If you want your product to have mass appeal, you must create an affordable device. This can only be accomplished by rethinking the manufacturing process to encourage developers to experiment with the biggest cost-driving components of wearables: display, energy and connectivity to name a few.Related: Get Ready: Wearable Tech Is About to Explode2. Power. It’s not convenient to take off your wearable device in the middle of the day and plug it in for charging. Wireless technology would allow charging wearable devices over long distances, as opposed plugging them into a stationary power source.Similarly, energy harvesting would allow generation of power through movement or thermal energy. Power solutions are critical to making wearable technology feel like a natural, consistent part of our lives.3. Perception.There is a high level of confusion over which tasks are best suited for existing devices versus which are best suited for new wearable devices. Smart watches are an example of this limitation. For many, checking email or answering calls on a 1.5-inch watch face is not nearly as appealing as a 5-inch screen on a smartphone.The incentive for using wearable technology lies in our perception of it. Wearable technology needs to solve problems and perform tasks not already solved by the dozens of larger, faster and proven devices in existence.Related: Samsung Galaxy Gear: A Smartwatch With Cool Features But Limited Appeal4. Functionality. The proposed functionality of Google Glass is intriguing, but how well does it work on a practical, day-to-day basis? Messaging friends, taking pictures and sending emails all through voice command is appealing, but can these devices perform under the stress of frequent, daily use?The issues of functionality are mostly ones that can only be resolved with time. For big wearable players, closing the disparity between intention and execution is a matter of ironing out the bugs in their products.5. Aesthetic. Wearables will become mainstream only if they are consumed in the same way as clothing. NFC (near field communications) rings, GPS sensor shirts and FLORA umbrellas must be thought about in the same way as regular jewelry, clothing and rain gear. Aesthetics must be a determining component in the design of wearables to encourage this pattern of mass market consumption.To bring together performance and design we must encourage the engineering market to develop pro solutions, as well as the “maker” movement to develop more accessible, unobtrusive designs using their aesthetic eye.Despite heavy-hitters like Apple and Google dominating technology news, wearables are not solely for the elite. There are involvement opportunities for all types of enterprises, and there are devices for all types of consumers and lifestyles. It’s only a matter of finding the right ones.Related: Wearable Devices Could Revolutionize the Way We Do Businesslast_img read more

iPad Buying Guide iPad vs iPad Air vs iPad Pro vs iPad

first_img The more portable, purse-friendly tablet in the iPad family, the iPad mini (2019) is a great handheld device. It features the same pixel resolution as the 9.7-inch iPad model on a smaller, denser 7.9-inch display. It also offers fantastic battery life and a speedy A12 Bionic chip, which makes it faster than that 9.7-inch iPad.Best For: If you like to read on the couch, in bed or on the go, the iPad mini is a great size for books, especially comic books. Its relatively small screen makes it easy to type quick social media posts or send off emails, during one handed use or while standing up. The mini is the best size for kids, but parents may prefer to get the less-expensive iPad 9.7-inch.  Apple iPad 9.7 (2017) deals?1 Amazon customer review☆☆☆☆☆US$499.99US$248.99ViewUS$289.99ViewUS$305.95ViewUS$329ViewShow More DealsWe check over 130 million products every day for the best pricespowered by Simply called the “iPad,” this 9.7-inch slate is the most affordable Apple tablet, with a starting price of just $329. Despite its lower price, the iPad has plenty of premium specs, including a 2048 x 1536 retina display, a speedy A10 processor, Apple Pencil support and dual 8-MP / 1.2-MP cameras. It comes in Silver, Space Gray and Gold colors in either 32 or 128GB capacity. Apple claims that the 2018 version of the iPad will provide up to 10 hours of endurance, but if it’s anything like the 2017 model, the numbers could be even higher as that last generation tablet lasted 12 hours and 59 minutes on the Laptop Mag Battery Test.Apple is also targeting schools with the latest version of the iPad, offering educators the opportunity to buy this slate for just $299 and providing a host of education apps. Best For: Because of its relatively low price and generous screen size, the iPad is a great choice for media consumption, gaming, social media and some light productivity (email, note taking without a pen). Though the iPad mini 4 is a better size for small hands, many parents will prefer the iPad’s lower price when choosing a slate for their kids. College students on a budget will also find this model appealing.  iPad Buying Guide: Which One is Right for You? 10 Tablets with the Longest Battery Life How to Sell, Trade In or Donate Your Old Tablet Screen12.9 inches(2732 x 2048)11 inches (2388 x 1688)  10.5-inch (2224 x 1668)9.7 inches(2048 x 1536)7.9 inches(2048 x 1536) From $499.00 From $799.00 How to Sell, Trade In or Donate Your Old Tablet iPad mini (2019) Tablet Buying Guide: 8 Essential Tips Dimensions11 x 8.5 x 0.2 inches9.7 x 7 x 0.2 inches 9.8 x 6.8 x 0.2 inches9.4 x 6.6 x 0.29 inches 8 x 5.3 x 0.2 inches ✖ Henry T.

Oh, and then there’s the Ferrari engine under the hood: Apple’s given the 2018 iPad Pros the fastest chip its ever made: the phenomenal A12X Bionic processor. Not only will it run the forthcoming Photoshop CC smoothly, but the company says it will provide gaming performance on par with an Xbox. While we can’t wait to test that claim, it’s certain that speed-demons will want this iPad Pro, especially if portability is a priority.And if you use the Apple Pencil, you definitely want one of the new iPad Pros. The 2nd Generation Apple Pencil is only compatible with the 11-inch iPad Pro and its larger sibling, so if you want its seamless magnetic docking, charging and pairing, you won’t want to get the older 10.5-inch iPad Pro. If you already own a 4K display you can connect to via USB Type-C, it may make sense to buy this over the larger sibling, as you already own a giant screen.Best For: Creative pros who love their styli, want a smaller device and push their iPad to the limits. Also, pros on a budget will go for this model, as it’s just as fast and capable, but starts at $200 less and its $179 Smart Keyboard Folio is $20 less than the 12.9-inch iPad Pro’s keyboard cover.

The Best Tablets for Less Than $200 Tablet Buying Guide: 8 Essential Tips Chromebook vs. Tablet: Which Should You Buy? Tablet Guide If you think bigger is better, the 12.9-inch iPad Pro is the best. Not only does it have the speedy A12X chip that the 11-inch iPad Pro offers, but its 2732 x 2048-pixel Liquid Retina, edge-to-edge panel is the largest digital canvas that apple offers. But that size doesn’t ruin its portability, as it’s a mere 0.4 pounds heavier than the 11-inch iPad Pro, and just as thin at 0.23 inches. And about that A12X processor, our tests showed that the new iPad Pro is faster at image editing than actual laptops, including the Surface Pro 6 and the Core i7 Dell XPS 13. And with 13+ hours of battery life, it also outlasts both of those PCs.The 2nd Generation Apple Pencil (sold separately for $129) packs gesture-based tricks in its barrel, and a charging method that won’t feel like you’re breaking it (I’m looking at you, iPad and 10.5-inch iPad Pro). Also, that A12X processor can handle anything you throw at it. If you add the $199 Smart Keyboard, you’ve got a 2-in-1 that might be able to rival your laptop. You’ll definitely want to get an iPad Pro keyboard case if you opt for this model, as the three options we’ve tested do a great job at perfecting the iPad as a laptop competitor.Best For: Those demanding creative pros who want the best iPad experience possible. Not only is it super-fast, but its larger screen — both in inches and pixels — provides the largest canvas for professional artists and video editors to do their work. From $329.00 This $499 iPad looks to provide the best mix of pro and consumer features at a price that won’t hurt too much. With support for the Apple Pencil and Smart Keyboard, it can be your next 2-in-1. The biggest differences with it and the entry-level $329-inch iPad are its slightly larger 10.5-inch screen, Smart Keyboard support and faster processor. Still, its screen isn’t as huge as what you get with an iPad Pro and its processor is a step behind the A12X Bionic chip.Best For: If you write a lot, edit photos and want a large screen for watching videos and multitasking, but don’t run highly-demanding video editing apps.
