Knowledge means power

Published

on

Ever since the early ages, having the right information at the right moment has meant power, and only those who could work their way to get it, were able to enjoy that privilege. Today, the Internet has made a drastic change of things, spreading information throughout the world in a way that everyone who has access to a connected computer, can be easily informed of whatever is going on around the globe in a split-second. This fact has dramatically increased the capacity of every individual to choose and get the most from the information technology aimed for a better living.

Printed news

Recent research points out that back in the year 59 BC, in the city of Rome, a pasquinade was used to keep the citizens informed about the daily actions of the Republic. But it was only until the invention of Guttemberg’s press, that the daily newspapers known today, finally appeared by the end of the 15th century in the form of single printed pages. As time passed by, printed press grew with huge strength, and in the year of 1690, the first newspaper named Public Occurrences, was printed in America on the day of September 25th, by Richard Pierce and edited by Benjamin Harris. It had only three pages.

During the 19th century the newspaper evolved and spread thanks to Otto Mergenthaler who invented the Linotype machine, the first device capable of printing a complete set of lines of type for use in the printing press. Since then, newspapers widely spread around the world until recent years when they are starting to migrate to an online format.

You can download everyday any newspaper in PDF

After the rise of the digital era, newspapers were forced to find out new ways to reach people, actual technology trends have driven big changes in the way daily tasks are done, a mere example is the availability of Internet to mass population. By the year 2007 the number of Internet users was already more than 1 billion, creating a new global landscape for all companies, including those dedicated to daily news of course. The level of information available nowadays represents a summit for journalism, but on the other hand, no one seems to be interested any more on reading from paper.

Opportunities for journalists to report spectacular news have grown exponentially but written media has experienced an awful decline. Since the Internet was launched back in the 90s, many newspapers have been forced to redefine themselves. That is exactly what the most experienced and powerful news companies have done: re-inventing themselves. They have played a crucial role in society for about hundred years until now, and these changes are not going to affect to them.

Studies show that even when fewer newspapers roll off the presses, that nightly network news are currently seen by less than half the people that used to watch them every night, and that news magazines are no longer what they used to be a generation ago, the news industry has found resources to feed from in digital media. You can now download every day newspaper in PDF and keep on enjoying the same outstanding information from the Starledger that used to be delivered to your family’s doorstep during your younger days, on a more convenient digital format now!

Gain back your access to the real stuff!

The Internet has replaced television and radio when it comes to breaking news immediacy. On the web, you can easily gain access to blogs of all kinds that provide endless analysis and opinions on whatever trends or news are on fire today, newsletters from sources of all kinds, videos of all sorts and countless other ways of getting information but, only by tracking down your own steps back to what you have known all your life as real and professional, is how you will seriously be informed with real free opinions and outstanding armchair analysis about your true interests.

This is why traditional newspapers have migrated to the net and you can now download every day newspaper in pdf, and read comfortably the New York Times just the way you have always liked, peacefully at home, at the time of your preference with the total confidence that what you are reading is trustworthy.

With both appointments, SEAT is focusing on Innovation and securing the company’s record profit and investment figures.

Research & Development and Finance are two of the most important areas on a car company. The new vice presidents of these areas, are both executives with international experience and extensive knowledge on the car market. Axel Andorff will be replacing Dr. Matthias Rabe (who will run the technical development operations area at Volkswagen), and Carsten Isensee, who is taking over for Holger Kintscher (who will be working as head of IT and finance at Volkswagen).

Let’s see who are these two new incorporations to the SEAT executive staff. 

Axel Andorff (R&D Vice president)

Axel Andorff is a German economic and mechanical engineer (from the German University of Kaiserslautern), with 20 years of experience at the car market, where he worked for Mercedes and held various positions in the research & development area of that company.

Gutemberg Dos Santos and Robert Kiyosaki share their vision of leadership

Published

on

Gutemberg Dos Santos is a Brazilian-American entrepreneur and one of the main promoters of the use of Blockchain technology and crypto economy.

Gutemberg Dos Santos and Robert Kiyosaki

Gutemberg Dos Santos a couple of years ago sponsored an event in which the Guinness Record broke with the largest number of people playing Cash Flow, a game developed by Robert Kiyosaki. Today, Dos Santos shares some reflections that emerged on that occasion about what a good leader is. 

A good leader is an excellent guide to reach common goals. If I want my team to work successfully I must share my skills and offer the best tools for their performance. I am also committed to strengthening the capabilities of each of the members and never assume that we all work the same as diversity enriches and complements the unit. 

Sharing experiences. If I share my experiences with the rest of my team regarding the success and failures I have had in some projects, I will empathize with my team and together we will be able to reach the goals proposed for the company.

Listening. This part is essential for a business to prosper, if I do not listen to my people I will be walking towards darkness. I must always remain alert to the doubts and questions that my team may have, in this way I will know if we are all on the same frequency and we are walking towards the same course.

Motivating my team. I take my time to know my team, how old they are, what is their educational and socioeconomic level; what goals they pursue in the short and long term. This will help me find keywords that guide me to be empathetic with them and be able to have better communication. 

Being proactive. When facing a difficult situation, I try to get the best out of it, without falling into frustration and rather detect alternative solutions. Trusting and being flexible. I am attentive to the capacities and strengths within my work team, this way I trust people in order to delegate tasks, likewise I am open to listen to proposals and suggestions that lead us to strengthen our project.
