New Grand Passage Ferry Christened Margarets Justice

first_imgThe new ferry for the Grand Passage service between Long Island and Brier Island, Digby Co., was officially christened as Margaret’s Justice to honour a local heroine, Margaret Davis. Participating in the ceremony today, Nov. 12, in Westport, Brier Island, were Alva McDormand, a long-time Brier Island resident, Premier Stephen McNeil, Clare-Digby MLA Gordon Wilson and descendants of Margaret Davis. In the spring, the Department of Transportation and Infrastructure Renewal held a name-the-new-islands ferry campaign at the Islands Consolidated School, in Freeport. The successful submission was Margaret’s Justice from Grade 12 student Carter Thurber. Margaret Davis, who lived on Brier Island from 1788-1858, was a mother to nine children, a healer, and a farmer. In 1828 the 63-year-old widow was threatened with losing her land to a neighbour. She walked to Halifax to fight for the right to her land and was successful. “Margaret’s Justice tells a great story of a courageous woman whose actions were many years ahead of her time,” said Premier McNeil. “Margaret Davis’s fight for justice continues to be an inspirational story in the islands’ history. We are honoured to have Ms. Davis’s name on our provincial ferry.” The $9.3-million ferry can carry 95 passengers and 18 vehicles. It was designed by EYE Marine Consultants of Dartmouth and built by A.F. Theriault and Son Boatyard of Meteghan, Digby Co. The Margaret’s Justice ferry will begin service in December. The present ferry, the Joe Casey, will continue to provide service between Long Island and Brier Island until December. FOR BROADCAST USE The new ferry for the Grand Passage service between Long Island and Brier Island, Digby County, was officially christened today (November 12th) as Margaret’s Justice to honour a local heroine, Margaret Davis. Margaret Davis, who lived on Brier Island from 1788 to 1858, was a 63-year-old widow when she walked from Brier Island to Halifax to successfully fight to retain her property. Premier Stephen McNeil says Margaret’s Justice tells a great story of a courageous woman whose actions were many years ahead of her time and the province is honoured to have her name on the new provincial ferry. The nine-point-three-million dollar ferry can carry ninety-five passengers and eighteen vehicles. The Margaret’s Justice ferry will begin service in December. -30-last_img read more

Oreo cookie maker Mondelez reports profit revenue shy of Wall Street expectations

AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email Oreo cookie maker Mondelez reports profit, revenue shy of Wall Street expectations by The Associated Press Posted Feb 12, 2014 2:30 pm MDT FILE – In this Feb. 9, 2011 file photo, a shopper selects Oreo cookies at a Ralphs Fresh Fare supermarket in Los Angeles. Mondelez International Inc. reports quarterly financial results after the market closes on Wednesday, Feb. 12, 2014. (AP Photo/File) NEW YORK, N.Y. – Mondelez reported a fourth-quarter profit Wednesday that fell short of Wall Street expectations as the Oreo maker struggled with cookie sales in China.The company, which also makes Cadbury, Chips Ahoy, Ritz and Trident gum, said its core revenue for the final three months of the year rose 2.5 per cent, primarily as a result of higher volume.Although gum sales in China were strong in the quarter, weak cookie sales dragged down results by a percentage in the “mid-teens.” The company experienced similar problems in the previous quarter, and CEO Irene Rosenfeld had attributed the decline in part to China’s cooling economy.At the time, Rosenfeld said Mondelez was working to address the issues through a variety of measures, such as finding the right package sizes and prices.Looking ahead, Mondelez expects its core revenue to grow about 4 per cent for the year. It had previously forecast growth of 4 per cent to 5 per cent. The company expects adjusted earnings for 2014 to come in between $1.73 to $1.78, better than the $1.71 Wall Street had expected.For the quarter, Mondelez International earned $1.77 billion, or $1 per share. That compares with $569 million, or 32 cents per share, a year ago.But the latest quarter’s results included a sizeable gain tied to the resolution of its arbitration with Starbucks over the breakup of its packaged coffee partnership. Not including such items, the company earned 42 cents per share. That was short of the 44 cents per share Wall Street had expected.Revenue slipped to $9.49 billion. That was also below the $9.6 billion analysts expected. read more

Strong collaboration needed to help end violence against children in Viet Nam

“Violence against children also has high financial costs for society through its long-lasting impact on child development, and for the budgets of the health, social welfare and criminal justice systems,” said Marta Santos Pais, the UN Special Representative on Violence against Children, in her meeting with government officials. “By investing in prevention, we can strengthen Viet Nam’s human and social capital,” she added.Ms. Santos Pais said the recently adopted Child Law and the strong network of social workers, supported by human and financial resources can pave the way for a strong collaboration where everyone can help transform this law into action to eliminate violence against children.There are an estimated 3.3 million children in need of special protection and particularly vulnerable to violence, which accounts for about 12 per cent of the total child population in Viet Nam.Countless numbers of children are vulnerable to neglect, abuse, trafficking and sexual exploitation. Children with disabilities remain particularly vulnerable and are three to four times more likely to be victims of violence, neglect and sexual abuse than their peers. Over 1.7 million are child workers, 172,500 are without parental care, 21,000 live on the street, 12,000 children are involved with the justice system, 2,381 are living with HIV/AIDS, and 1,067 use drugs.Estimates on violence against children in Viet Nam are based on the definition of a child as under 16 years of age compared with the international norm of persons under 18 years of age.These figures almost certainly underestimate the number of children in need of care and protection. Data on violence against children in Viet Nam is patchy, and as in many other countries government estimates based on administrative data are generally far below those based on independent surveys conducted by non-governmental organizations (NGOs) and academics.“If we witness a child being a victim of violence, we should take action and report it to the authorities,” added Ms. Santos Pais. In addition to physical violence, children are increasingly exposed to the danger of being sexually abused or taken advantage of online. A recent poll in Viet Nam has shown that 41 per cent of young people aged 18 years old have witnessed their friends participate in risky behaviours online.Preventing and responding to violence against children is a high priority for the UN, as the new Sustainable Development Goals include a specific target, 16.2, to end all forms of violence against children.Within the framework of the new One UN Strategic Plan 2017-2021, the UN remains committed to supporting the Government in its efforts to end all forms of violence against children, including by strengthening the national child protection system, changing perceptions and attitudes of society towards violence against children, and to encourage children and the wider population to speak up when they witness such violence in their environment.During her visit, Ms. Santos Pais delivered a keynote speech at the opening of the 4th Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) Children Forum in Ha Noi, held a dialogue with the child delegates at the Forum, and visited the Social Work Center in Da Nang, which is supported by the UN Children’s Fund (UNICEF). read more

Ohio State mens hockey coach Steve Rohlik reflects on 1st year

OSU hockey coach Steve Rohlik (back) talks to his team during a game against Michigan March 2 at Nationwide Arena. OSU lost, 4-3.Credit: Ben Jackson / For The LanternFor being such long endeavors, it’s odd that sports seasons are supposedly defined by their end results. It makes more sense to take a more holistic approach and look at the big picture — at the sum of all those little moments that go unnoticed.An event that was noticed was the 2014 Big Ten Hockey Tournament Championship in St. Paul, Minn. The first season of Big Ten hockey came down to one final game between Ohio State and Wisconsin, where the Buckeyes led 4-2 with less than seven minutes left March 22.The man behind OSU’s bench was Steve Rohlik. An associate head coach for three years with the Buckeyes, the 2013-14 season was Rohlik’s first in the top job. He had led his team through an 0-3 start and a goaltending reshuffle to bring the team within striking distance of its first NCAA Tournament appearance in five years.His seemingly calm demeanor didn’t reveal the tension of the encounter, nor his own personal details that made the situation more compelling — this was not only a game in his hometown, but it was also against his alma mater. The script almost writes itself.But, without warning, that script disappeared. The line between success and failure — one the Buckeyes had toed all season long in their 18-14-5 campaign — became clear. The Badgers scored twice in 28 seconds during the third period to tie the game, and less than eight minutes into the overtime period, Wisconsin was the Big Ten champion.“I couldn’t have asked much more from our guys. They laid it on the line,” Rohlik said last week. “Ultimately I think we were 6:52 short of doing something pretty darn special for this university, for the alumni here, and for this program.”That wasn’t the whole story, though. Instead, it was simply the end of the journey for a team and a coach that stressed the small things, and few could’ve imagined the Buckeyes would finish where they did after the upheaval of the previous spring.Before Rohlik stepped into his new role, Mark Osiecki was fired just over three weeks after the end of the 2012-13 season because of what athletic director Gene Smith called in a press release “a difference of opinion over the management of the program that could not be resolved.”It was Osiecki, Rohlik’s teammate at the University of Wisconsin, who brought him to Columbus as an associate head coach. Rohlik was named coach on an interim basis the day after Osiecki was let go, and then about a week later, was confirmed as the ninth head coach in program history.“I’m truly honored, humbled and very blessed,” Rohlik said at his introductory press conference April 24, 2013. “When I sat down with the administration, and they told me the support they had moving into the Big Ten, I knew this was the place I wanted to be.”Despite being an assistant coach for 16 years, Rohlik displayed leadership qualities at a young age. Captain at both Hill-Murray High School in St. Paul, Minn., and the University of Wisconsin, he had loads of experience in leading hockey players.“From a young age, I was a captain of every team I’ve ever been on. In high school, in every sport I was a captain, my buddies called me ‘the captain.’” Rohlik said. “It was just in my blood. I love to put my neck out there, I love to try to do things the right way, and I love to give it 110 percent and do whatever it takes to help the team win.”Just like leadership, hockey was also in Rohlik’s blood. Growing up in the “land of 10,000 lakes,” he said there was always a pond to skate on, and Rohlik described the sport as “a way of life.”The dream for most kids was to play in the Minnesota state championship game. Rohlik played in two.From there, he crossed the state line and attended the University of Wisconsin, captaining the Badgers in his junior and senior seasons, with his final campaign culminating in the 1990 NCAA Championship.“I might’ve been the guy with the ‘C’ on his sweater, but we had so many great leaders, and all the hard work kind of accumulated to our senior year,” Rohlik said. “To win the (Western Collegiate Hockey Association), to win the WCHA playoffs, and then to win the NCAA Tournament … you can’t write a book any better than that year.”Rohlik had a short stint as a professional before returning to his alma mater, Hill-Murray, as coach at the age of 23. Growing up, Rohlik’s father served the school in administrative position, so he said his dream was to play at Hill-Murray, making his appointment as coach even more meaningful.Five seasons in St. Paul were followed by Division I assistant coaching jobs at Nebraska-Omaha and Minnesota-Duluth. Then in 2010, Rohlik got the call from Osiecki, and in just three years he’d become the coach.“I think I’ve tried to take everything over my experiences as a player for so many years and as a coach for so many years. I just try to compile all those experiences,” Rohlik said. “Throughout all those years, you continue to ask yourself, ‘what would you do in that situation?’ I try to put myself in that spot, and ultimately when you get called upon (to be head coach), you try to surround yourself with good people.”One of those people is associate head coach Brett Larson, a man Rohlik got to know at Minnesota-Duluth, and who Rohlik brought to OSU upon his appointment last year. Larson said Rohlik’s passion coupled his with genuine nature makes him a natural fit for a coach.“The players can see how much he cares, how passionate he is. He wants to push everything to the next level,” Larson said. “It’s a great part of our culture, and you always say that the head coach leads the culture of a program. Being so passionate and so genuine are two things that make the players really want to play hard for him.”The switch in coaching might have been tricky, but junior forward Tanner Fritz — who played under Rohlik as an assistant for two years — said the familiarity was actually beneficial.“When he was the assistant coach, he was always the guy in the room after practice talking to the guys. He still does that — he’s a great player coach,” Fritz said. “He’s very involved in the team. I think he’s tight with every one of us. It’s good to have a coach that’s approachable and can talk to you outside of hockey.”Besides his management skills and personability, Rohlik wants to instill in his players that passion Larson and so many others see clearly in him. Judging by what players like Fritz have to say about it, he seems to have succeeded.“His passion for the game is — bar none — one of the best I’ve ever seen. The guy loves the game, he loves being at the rink,” Fritz said. “(The players) feed off that energy. We’re hard-working and we play with a lot of passion, and that comes from the coaching staff.”That might not have come through at first, however. Three consecutive losses to start the season, an injury to freshman goalie Matt Tomkins and another goalie, then-sophomore Collin Olson, leaving the program in November threatened to derail the entire season.But things changed with the addition of freshman goalie Christian Frey in net and the competitiveness of the Big Ten conference. Each game seemed to bring out the best in the Buckeyes as they finished fourth, behind three top-20 squads.Freshman forward Nick Schilkey, who was named to the Big Ten All-Freshman Team, said the coaching philosophy of Rohlik and his staff was a big factor in righting the ship.“He focuses on a lot of details. We focused all year on sticking together and sticking to the gameplan the coaches had set in place,” Schilkey said. “Over time, we grew into that gameplan and it showed during the second half of the year.”Those details came together in many instances, including the upset of then-No. 1 Minnesota in the Big Ten Tournament semifinal. Even if the season could be considered a success though, Rohlik knows there’s more to come from this team and this program.“Were we satisfied at the end? Absolutely not. Were we satisfied with where we were at in the league? Absolutely not,” Rohlik said. “There’s certainly always room for improvement, and we know we’ve got a long way to go.”And though he’s building a program, Rohlik sees his job as much more than that.He cites the examples of junior forward Ryan Dzingel and senior forward Alex Lippincott as proof of what the sport’s biggest impact can be. Dzingel just signed a professional contract with the Ottawa Senators of the NHL, while Lippincott recently got his first job as graduation approaches.“You see the power of what Ohio State can (do), be it moving on with the hockey or moving on because of the academic side of things,” Rohlik said. “I think that makes it pretty special for us to be involved with.”Now, with one season under his belt, Rohlik is aiming to make things even more special around the OSU hockey program.If he continues to get some of those little details right, it’d be hard to overestimate how far he can take it. read more

Des vestiges en Californie semblent confirmer larrivée des premiers Américains par la

first_imgDes vestiges en Californie semblent confirmer l’arrivée des premiers Américains par la côteLes premiers Américains auraient migré d’Asie en Amérique en longeant les côtes. C’est du moins ce que suggère une étude parue dans la revue américaine Science et basée sur la découverte de vestiges dans des îles au large de la Californie. De plus de 12.000 ans, ceux-ci témoignent d’activités sophistiquées de chasse et de pêche. Voilà une trouvaille étonnante : des pointes de projectiles, des hameçons ou encore des restes de  coquillages ou d’animaux comme des phoques, des poissons et des cormorans. Ces traces du passé, datées entre 11.400 et 12.200 ans viennent d’être décelées sur trois sites d’un archipel de l’océan Pacifique au large de Los Angeles, en Californie.Les experts sont unanimes, les objets tellement sophistiqués ne peuvent qu’être réservés à la chasse sur l’eau. Jon Erlandson, professeur d’anthropologie et membre de l’équipe à la base de la découverte le confirme : “Les pointes – des flèches et harpons – sont extraordinaires et la qualité de fabrication étonnante”. Le chercheur souligne en même temps la qualité et la précision de travail de conception : “Ces pointes sont ultra-fines, dentelées et ont des contre-pointes ou ardillons”. Ce constat, précise le chercheur, met en évidence la subtilité des objets qui permettraient d’éviter le décrochage de l’hameçon.La colonisation du continent américain se serait faite par la côte pacifiqueAlors qu’on considérait les peuplades dites de Clovis comme les premiers habitants du continent américain, l’étude des nouveaux vestiges semble réfuter cette hypothèse. En effet, les pointes de flèches découvertes se distinguent fortement de celles, bifaces, des peuplades de Clovis trouvées un peu partout en Amérique du Nord. À lire aussiLe pharaon Toutânkhamon n’était sans doute pas celui que l’on croitEn revanche, observe Jon Erlandson, la forme et les techniques utilisées pour la création de ces pointes sont plutôt similaires à celles des vestiges trouvés sur des sites dans le bassin du Pacifique, du Japon à l’Amérique du Sud. Ce dernier avait déjà soumis en 2006 l’hypothèse selon laquelle la colonisation du continent américain se serait faite par la côte pacifique vers la fin de la période glacière, il y a 15.000 ans. Ce scénario sous-entend que les premiers migrants en Amérique auraient suivi, le long de la côte, une bande d’eau riche en algues, coquillages, poissons, oiseaux marins, loutres de mer et phoques. Ce périple les aurait amené depuis le Japon à se rendre en Alaska en passant par le Kamchatka et la mer de Béring.Les scientifiques cherchent à présent dans l’archipel, des sites archéologiques encore plus anciens qui permettraient de prouver que la migration côtière a contribué aux premiers peuplements des Amériques il y a au moins 15.000 ans.Le 4 mars 2011 à 10:47 • Emmanuel Perrinlast_img read more

This time Murkowski votes with Democrats on Planned Parenthood

first_imgSen. Lisa Murkowski (File photo: KTOO – Juneau.)Download AudioAfter the Pope left the Capitol today , the U.S. Senate took another procedural vote on a bill to defund Planned Parenthood, this one linked to a stop-gap measure to fund the government. Sen. Lisa Murkowski was one of eight Republicans to vote against advancing the bill. She sided with Democrats who say cutting Planned Parenthood funds would limit access to healthcare and contraception.  As expected, the bill failed to get enough votes to move. Senate leaders have teed up another bill to fund government, without the controversial Planned Parenthood part.Murkowski is unpredictable on bills related to abortion. In August, she voted to advance another bill to defund Planned Parenthood, saying she hoped to limit the bill’s effects with a later amendment.Even a few hours before the vote this afternoon, Murkowski couldn’t say which side she would choose.“I have made very, very clear to anyone who is within range of listening that I do not support shutting down the government. Period,” she said.But the senator says she doesn’t believe federal funds should be cut off to all of Planned Parenthood.“Your reality is then those facilities in Alaska that provide for the STD testing, some of the other services, will not have those resources. And that is very troubling,” she said. “The women of Alaska, and I think women around the country, need to make sure that they don’t have a disruption of service.”Nationally, Planned Parenthood has been under fire after staff at some affiliates were allegedly videotaped discussing the harvest of aborted fetal parts. Laws already ban spending federal money for abortion, but anti-abortion groups say Planned Parenthood is able to perform more abortions because its clinics are supported with federal money.Sen. Dan Sullivan voted with the majority of Senate Republicans, in favor of advancing the bill.Murkowski said before today’s vote she needed to see the details of the legislation.“We’ve had a couple of different views about whether or not its complete elimination of funding of Planned Parenthood funding for the year, or whether it’s just the Title X portion,” she said. Title X refers to federal family planning programs. “That to me is important.  So that’s where I’m going now, is going back (to) pull up that bill.”Murkowski also explained why she missed a vote on Tuesday on another abortion bill, that one to ban abortion after the 20th week of pregnancy. The senator says she was in Texas, raising money for her re-election.“I had made, months and months ago, made arrangement to do a fundraising swing, and had put in place these plans at the early part of the summer,” she said.Murkowski says when she made her plans, she predicted the Senate would not have any votes that day, and that turned out to be the wrong call.“I do regret not being here for the vote, because that’s your responsibility,” she said.The abortion ban also failed to get enough votes to pass. She disappointed anti-abortion groups then with a statement indicating she wouldn’t have supported the bill anyway. Murkowski says she could support a late-term abortion ban, as long as it had adequate exceptions.last_img read more

How Texas Could Monitor Students Social Media Posts More Closely

first_img Share Listen AP Photo/Eric GaySanta Fe students takes part in a roundtable discussion in Austin, Texas, Thursday, May 24, 2018, hosted by Texas Gov. Gregg Abbott to address safety and security at Texas schools in the wake of the shooting at Santa Fe, Texas.Law enforcement plans to watch students’ social media more closely after the Santa Fe High School shooting, since Governor Greg Abbott wants to use technology to find threats online as part of his school safety plan. X 00:00 /00:52center_img In his plan released last week, Abbott wants people to use a new state developed app, called iWatch. It will be launched this month by the Texas Department of Public Safety. It lets people report suspicious behavior and then alerts law enforcement.However, some schools already monitor what students say on social media. The Spring Independent School District uses a program called Social Sentinel and Katy ISD recently decided to it as well.The technology scans for threatening words online and sends alerts to district officials. Spring’s spokeswoman Karen Garrison said in an email that the district also plans to use funds from its recent $330 million bond package to upgrade its surveillance camera system.But David McGeary with the Harris County Department of Education told News 88.7 an old fashioned approach could be more effective in “curbing behaviors that can lead to violent outbursts or that can lead to critical events.”And those, he said, are still largely face-to-face rather than social, so building positive relationships inside of the school could mitigate risk more than anonymous reporting apps or social media scanning.“To look at it as sort of  a panacea to school violence, or bullying or students at risk of suicide is kind of short-sighted. I think you do have to sort of take this multi-paneled approach to mitigating risk, but that starts with relationships in the schools and you build technology to layer on top of everything else,” McGeary said.That’s why many students and educators want to see more counselors in schools, something that Texas law doesn’t require.

Smart window controls light and heat kills microorganisms

first_img © 2018 Phys.org Citation: Smart window controls light and heat, kills microorganisms (2018, July 13) retrieved 18 August 2019 from https://phys.org/news/2018-07-smart-window-microorganisms.html The researchers, led by Yan-Yan Song at Northeastern University in Shenyang, China, and Xing-Hua Xia at Nanjing University in Nanjing, China, have published a paper on the new sterile smart window in a recent issue of ACS Nano.As the researchers explain, integrating multiple functions into a single smart window presents a challenge, since each function typically requires a different material composition. For example, one of the most widely used materials for smart windows that control visible light transmission is WO3 (tungsten trioxide). As an electrochromic material, WO3 can reversibly change its optical transmittance in response to electrochemical charging and discharging. On the other hand, smart windows that convert near-infrared solar radiation into heat typically involve metal nanoparticles. Also, a wide range of materials have antimicrobial properties, most notably copper. So far, however, combining all of these properties into one material has remained a challenge.In the new study, the researchers designed an electrochromic-photothermal film composed of 3D WO3 in a honeycomb-like structure embedded with gold nanoparticles and nanorods. While the WO3 controls the amount of visible light that passes through the window, the gold nanostructures convert incoming sunlight into thermal energy for heating the building interior. “This is a new strategy that achieves excellent photothermal conversion via solar gain optimization on electrochromic films and, importantly, the photothermal efficiency is adjustable during optical transmission,” Xia told Phys.org.The researchers demonstrated that the window can change from fully transparent to pitch black within minutes. Further, they showed that a near-infrared laser increases the temperature of the window by 24 °C in about five minutes. To investigate the antimicrobial properties of the window, the researchers treated it with E. coli and irradiated it with a near-infrared laser. They found that the bactericidal effect was strongest when the window was in its dark state, in which it could eliminate virtually all of the bacteria. In contrast, the effect was much weaker for windows in the transparent state, as well as those made of only WO3 or only gold nanostructures, rather than both materials combined. The results suggest that most of the bactericidal effects are due to the photothermal properties of the window.”The sterile smart window would be particularly useful in aircraft, in high-latitude zones, and also in hospitals,” Xia said. “It should be multifunctional, for example, controlling visible light transmission dynamically, tuning heat conversion of near-infrared solar radiation, and reducing attacks by microorganisms.” Journal information: ACS Nano Material could help windows both power your home and control its temperature A new smart window offers more than just a nice view—it also controls the transmittance of sunlight, heats the interiors of buildings by converting solar radiation into heat, and virtually eliminates E. coli bacteria living on the glass. In the future, such sterile smart windows may be used in airplanes, hospitals, public transportation, and other areas.center_img Photographs showing one of the three properties of the sterile smart window: control of visible light transmission.

How to Get Your App in Customers Hands and Build Word of

first_img There are a multitude of ways that you can market your mobile app. With a few tools, you need to spend money. With others, you need just time.Whatever marketing route you choose, getting your app in front of customers is one of the toughest challenges a developer can face.Over the years, since the app stores came into play (pun unintended), app developers/entrepreneurs have tried various customer-outreach methods. When one method works for a developer or two, many others follow suit and soon there is clutter on that channel.You need to keep looking for new channels. But newer channels don’t keep popping up through the weeks or months. And you definitely cannot wait for one to come by.So what do you do? You go back to the basics. In the entire spectrum of marketing, it all boils down to one thing — word of mouth.Related: Why Starting Small Can Lead to a Better AppHow can you influence word of mouth to help you get traction for your mobile app? Here are a few ways to get started.1. Start slow and small. This can seem quite contrary to what most people would have you believe, but starting small can actually help you deliver a better app.What this means is that with the first version of your app, you reach out to only a select few people (within your customer segment) in the community or certain geography. This geography can be limited to part of a city or an entire city. But nothing more.You can do this mostly by yourself and with the help of your network. This lends a personal touch to your app and builds a better connection with your customers. The smaller you start, the easier to build your product with course corrections.2. Focus on their needs. When you’re building for a specific customer segment, you are able to focus on their problems and pain points. Your version 1 of the app may or may not resonate with that customer segment.If it does not, you do not want to find out after marketing to an audience of 100,000. You want to make the mistakes with just a few people, get your app right and then target the next 100, then the next.Related: How to Attract (and Keep) Your First 100 CustomersOnce you hit the target of your first 100 customers, connect with them as much as you can personally.
