This has led to a heated debate over sexism in politics, with women everywhere slamming the Speaker for his alleged chauvinism. Lawmakers may want to lend an ear to feminist Eve Ensler, who has famously explained that the word is not shameful and using it as part of regular conversation is like referring to your elbow as an elbow. To shy away from using vagina and substituting it with vague euphemisms means succumbing to a longstanding system of subjugating womens sexuality. Not convinced?

In her two years as vice president, Thompson has pieced together an effective mechanism where different sectors of Dell can meet to tackle issues of sustainable development together. “CSR as a function needs to be integrated into the working of a company. My biggest challenge was to send out a uniform message to our customers about how we could help them lead better, more sustainable lives,” she says.

Khelo India programme to be launched from 2018: Rathore

first_imgBhubaneswar, Dec 10 (PTI) Union Minister of State for Youth Affairs and Sports Rajyavardhan Singh Rathore today said the government will launch a Khelo India programme at a cost of Rs 1,756 crore for the period 2017-18 to 2019-20.This marks a “watershed moment” in the history of Indian sports, as the programme aims at mainstreaming sports as a tool for individual development, community development, economic development and national development, he said.The initiative would impact the entire sports ecosystem, including infrastructure, community sports, talent identification, coaching for excellence, competition structure and sports economy, said Rathore, who is also Minister of State for Information and Broadcasting.Highlighting some salient features of the programme, the Union minister said a new Pan Indian Sports Scholarship scheme, which would cover 1,000 most talented young athletes each year across select sports disciplines will be introduced.Each athlete selected under the scheme will receive an annual scholarship worth Rs 5 lakh for 8 years, Rathore said, addressing the Yuva Sambardhana Utsav.The year 2018 will be celebrated as Year of Sports, he said.The Khelo India campaign aims to promote 150 select schools in as many districts, and 20 universities across the country, as hubs of sporting excellence, which would enable talented sports persons to pursue the dual pathway of education and competitive sports.The programme would cover about 200 million children in the age group of 10-18 under a massive national physical fitness drive, the minister said.Under the scheme, a campaign will be launched from January 31, 2018 to February 8, 2018 to spot sports talents under 17 years in schools, which will be telecast live.advertisementLikewise, another programme will be launched for under-21 college students.”Our aim is 2024 and 2028 Olympics. The spotted talents will be imparted specialised training to make them medal winners,” Rathore said.”We cant produce national and international level sports persons with huge infrastructure only. For this, we need strong will power,” the minister said at another event at the Kalinga Institute of Social Sciences (KISS) here. PTI SKN RBTlast_img read more

Rocky: Returning to Our Roots

first_img The Barbershop Renaissance and Men’s Grooming Revolution, According to Fellow Barber’s Sam Buffa Editors’ Recommendations How to Support the Teachers in Your Life 1. Rocky’s Original Hiker 2. Rocky’s Original Hiker 3. Rocky’s Original Hiker 4. Rocky’s Original Hiker While everyone  is busy with the newest and the latest, there’s a shoe manufacturer flying under the radar in Ohio that is making believers out of their old school is the new school approach. Rocky specializes in boots for all walks of life, and they’re sticking to their guns by bringing back classics such as the Rocky Original Hiker and the Red-Laced Hiker. Rocky Graphic Designer, Josh Blanton, gave me insight into their history, pride in their new handcrafted limited edition collection being made in America, and what makes Rocky the best boot that money can buy.How did Rocky get its start?The story of Rocky is one of small-town pride and the passion for producing quality products. Brothers William (Bill) and F.M. (Mike) Brooks took a leap of faith during the Great Depression and moved their families from Columbus to Nelsonville to start a shoe factory in Southeastern Ohio. In search of opportunity, the brothers set up shop in a rent-free factory with lent equipment and the William Brooks Shoe Co. was born.After a change in ownership and many difficult years for shoe manufacturers in the U.S. the company fell in the hands of F.M.’s son, John Brooks. It was supposed to be just like any other mom and pop shop on Main Street, but John’s son and former Rocky CEO, Mike Brooks, had much bigger ideas…By the late 1970s, Mike decided it was time for the company to have its own brand name. Looking for a rugged, outdoorsy name, he chose Rocky – and with that name the Rocky brand was born!Still headquartered in Nelsonville, Ohio, the Rocky® brand continues to be a world leader who designs, develops, manufactures and markets premium quality, rugged Outdoor, Work, Western, Duty and Military footwear as well as Outdoor and Work apparel and accessories. Innovation, quality, and durability are hallmarks of the Rocky® brand name. The Rocky goal to provide quality outdoor and occupational footwear has not changed since the doors opened over 80 years ago.What does having that “Made in America” stamp of approval mean to Rocky?For us, being able to handcraft this collection entirely in the United States of America is about pride in our products and a tribute to our proud history. But there’s more to it than that for us, as these boots helped make the company what it is today.The boots are handcrafted in Wynne, Arkansas using world-renowned Vibram® outsoles from Brookfield, Massachusetts, and the laces are from nearby Portsmouth, Ohio. Rocky actually used the original last that the boots were built on over 30 years ago, which was rediscovered by Jones & Vining™ exclusively for this collection. To add to the American-made components, the boots arrive in a custom-made ZACE USA x Rocky denim shoe bag, all of which were handsewn here in Ohio. ZACE USA proudly handcrafts USA-made denim products.Why bring back Rocky’s Original Hiker and Red-Laced Hiker?For us, this was an opportunity to return to our roots. These timeless, award-winning styles laid the foundation for where Rocky is today. In the 1970s, the Oblique Toe was groundbreaking in the footwear market, and to this day it has been copied by countless companies but never replicated. The timeless design of these styles echoes the proud tradition and heritage of Rocky.What’s the story behind the oblique toe shape?The story of the design, in my opinion, is a testament to its success. Former CEO Mike Brooks designed the oblique toe after an old shoemaker had told him that you should be able to move your toes inside a boot like you were playing a piano. Trying to develop something that was innovative for the market that was largely round toe, Mike began looking at the foot and saw an opportunity to create a toe shape that naturally worked with the foot – thus the oblique toe was developed. The revolutionary design was recognized with the American Designer’s Award and the rest is history.How have your fans responded to Rocky’s campaign to return to their roots?Locally we have experienced a remarkable sense of community pride that we are returning to our roots and bringing back styles that hark back to the classics. It’s difficult to find someone who doesn’t have a fond memory involving these styles – whether it was their childhood or a family member that always wore them – which to me is the most rewarding aspect of this project. We’ve had the remarkable opportunity of having people share their personal stories and images with us of their Original Rocky Hikers and it’s evident that the connection transcends merely footwear – it was a lasting memory.What is it about the Rocky brand that separates you from the rest?In my opinion, we separate ourselves in that even though we have grown exponentially since our founding, we are still at the core a family business. We pride ourselves on being able to continue to make a positive difference in lives of our associates as well as our community. We proudly give back to our local community through our Rocky Community Improvement Fund (RCIF).  Since it was created in 2009, RCIF has contributed over $280,000 to various charities and non-profits in Appalachia.Rocky separates itself in regards to products by consistently evaluating and addressing the needs of our customers by providing innovative solutions. The beauty of Rocky is that we truly have product offerings for all walks of life – whether it is for the adventurer, blue-collar worker, farmer, hunter, service member, or public service member – Rocky has a boot for you. The common thread among all of them is their expectation of quality in their footwear and the confidence it gives them to succeed.Rocky encourages its customers and fans to share their adventures in their Rocky footwear by using the hashtag, #rockyheritage.  For whatever adventure you encounter: never forget who you are, where you came from, and what made you great. It’s evident that no matter how much has changed in the past 83 years, Rocky hasn’t forgotten their roots.center_img Horizn One Is the First-Ever Smart Luggage Designed for Space Travel Outerknown is Throwing it Way Back with the Woolaroo Wool Swim Trunk Yes, You Can Wear Boots to the Office: Here are the Best Pairslast_img read more

All Clear at Port of Durban in Storm Aftermath

first_imgzoom All navigable areas of the Port of Durban have now been declared safe for navigation, Transnet National Ports Authority said in its latest update following the mega-storm that ravaged the country on October 10.The announcement was made following the completion of Transnet National Ports Authority’s (TNPA) sounding surveys that found no obstacles in the navigation channels that might pose a danger to vessel traffic.The surveys employed TNPA Dredging Services division, divers and drones, TNPA said.“TNPA’s focus still remains on continuing with the implementation of the recovery operations and supporting terminal operators to restore normality,” the port authority added.The Port of Durban was forced to shut down operations to marine traffic as several vessels got grounded, including one containership that drifted into the mouth of the port, blocking its entrance.Yachts and boats in the small craft harbour and at the Point Yacht Club (PYC) also broke free from their moorings.Separately, South African terminal operator Transnet Port Terminals (TPT) declared Force Majeure at its terminal facilities in Richards Bay following the strong storm.TNT said that the decision was made due to the damage caused by extreme weather conditions which have impacted terminal operations.The Richards Bay terminal, handling bulk and break bulk cargo, is situated in KwaZulu-Natal, a coastal South African province, which has been declared a disaster area by Premier Willies Mchunu after the storm that devasted parts of the province.last_img read more

Payette takes on climate change deniers and horoscopes at science conference

first_imgOTTAWA – One month into her new job as Canada’s Governor General, Julie Payette is taking on fake news and bogus science.Payette was the keynote speaker at the ninth annual Canadian Science Policy Convention in Ottawa Wednesday night where she urged her friends and former colleagues to take responsibility to shut down the misinformation about everything from health and medicine to climate change and even horoscopes that has flourished with the explosion of digital media.“Can you believe that still today in learned society, in houses of government, unfortunately, we’re still debating and still questioning whether humans have a role in the Earth warming up or whether even the Earth is warming up, period,” she asked, her voice incredulous.“And we are still debating and still questioning whether life was a divine intervention or whether it was coming out of a natural process let alone, oh my goodness, a random process.”She generated giggles and even some guffaws from the audience when she said too many people still believe “taking a sugar pill will cure cancer if you will it good enough and that your future and every single one of the people here’s personalities can be determined by looking at planets coming in front of invented constellations.”Payette was trained as a computer engineer and later became an astronaut and licensed pilot and in 1999 was the first Canadian to board the International Space Station.Appointed by Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, one of the conference-goers Wednesday noted she was now the second astronaut to be part of the Trudeau government, along with Transport Minister Marc Garneau.Trudeau has pledged to give science a more prominent place in his government’s policy-making, appointing a chief science adviser earlier this fall and undergoing a national science policy review that reported in the spring. The government’s response to the report of the scientific review panel is still in the works.Science Minister Kirsty Duncan speaks at the conference Thursday evening where she is expected to outline more of the government’s vision for science. Chief Science Adviser Mona Nemer addresses the gathering earlier in the day.Payette clearly signalled her background will play a major role in her tenure as Governor General.She urged her former colleagues in the room to be “vigilant” and aim to make science a topic so well known and understood it is a subject of conversation at cocktail parties in the same way people now talk about the weather or the latest hockey scores.She said the “the internet, social media, 24-hour news” have meant more and more information is accessible to the public. A learned society is a better society, Payette said, but the fake news and bogus scientific claims have to be refuted.“Democracy and society have always gained from learned debate but we have to remain vigilant and we cannot let ourselves fall into complacency and we must be vocal, all the time, everywhere, every single one of us, so we can deconstruct misinformation and don’t end up in an echo chamber just listening to what we want to hear,” Payette said.— follow @mrabson on Twitter.last_img read more

UN High Commissioner for Refugees visits Sierra Leone Guinea and Liberia

During his visit in Sierra Leone, Mr. Lubbers is scheduled to meet with President Tejan Kabbah and visit a camp for ex-combatants near the capital, Freetown, before leaving for Conakry, Guinea. In Guinea, Mr. Lubbers is expected to visit Lainé camp, which was established for some 150,000 Liberian refugees in Guinea, as well as one camp for Sierra Leoneans in Boreah. The UN High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) said with 255,000 Sierra Leoneans having gone home from countries in the region since 2000, it will start to phase out its assistance and repatriation programmes in June. Mr. Lubbers is scheduled to arrive in Liberia on Monday. “We need to start now in preparing the ground for the return of some 300,000 Liberian refugees from neighbouring countries,” UNHCR said, adding that refugees and internally displaced persons (IDPs) have been returning on their own to home areas that have been devastated by conflict. Forty-six UNHCR staff members were deployed across Liberia on Monday to reopen offices around the country. The agency noted that it had received only about $14 million of the $39.2 million appeal it had launched to aid the Liberian repatriation and reintegration programme. read more

Bad news Scorpios youre the worst for making car insurance claims

first_imgIF YOU BELIEVE in star signs, people born under the sign of Scorpio are secretive, stubborn and insensitive.And now, as if they don’t have enough to contend with, it turns out that they also make more motor insurance claims than any other sign of the zodiac. Can’t those guys get a break?AA Ireland did a review of car insurance claims and found that Arians (people born between 21 March and 20 April) make the least claims on their car insurance, closely followed by Leos, who are born between 23 July and 22 August.Geminis made the second-most claims after Scorpios, closely followed by Capricorns, Librans, Taurans and Virgos who all tied for 3rd place.Aquarian and committed rationalist Conor Faughnan says Scorpios shouldn’t panic just yet.“To be honest we are very rational and skeptical in here,” he said. “As major motor insurers you would hope that it is true”.The differences in risk rate based on your birthday are very very small but for all that it can be a bit of fun to compare them.So don’t worry. Faughnan assures us that insurance companies won’t be carefully checking your birthday and assessing your personality traits.“We don’t take it all that seriously, and certainly we don’t use astrology to rate motor insurance risk,” he said. “But it was a fun exercise and caused a lot of debate here in the office.”How the star signs ranked in order of claims1.

Johnstone An Ibrox exit is probably the best for former Rangers

first_imgFormer Rangers footballer Derek Johnstone says it is time for the club’s former captain Lee Wallace to move on from the club after struggling for playing time under a new manager, Steven Gerrard.Derek Johnstone in an article posted on Evening Times described Wallace as a passionate lover of Rangers but has to move on at this point in his career.The article read: “Lee Wallace has become a Rangers man, he is very passionate about the club and he loves the club. But it is probably time for him to move on from Ibrox.Some people can have short memories in football and you forget what Lee did for Rangers during their troubles. He should always be thanked for that.“Now, though, he has to think about himself and he should be looking to leave Rangers for the good of his career so that he can go away and play football.“Lee isn’t up chapping the manager’s door every day asking why he isn’t playing and he will fully understand the situation right now.Rangers is still behind Celtic: John Hartson Manuel R. Medina – September 3, 2019 According to the former Celtic player, there’s still a massive gap between his ex-club and Rangers in the Scottish Premier League.“I have no doubt that he would want to stay at the club but if someone comes in for him this month he should think about taking the opportunity to get back on the park. He has to seriously think about it.“He will want to play week in week out but that isn’t going to happen for him at Rangers. So a move is the best thing for him.“I know there has been talk about a return to Hearts in the past and, without having spoken to Lee about it, I am sure that would interest him.“He has been linked with a move down south as well and he won’t be short of offers if he decides that now is the time for him to leave.“He has been on the sidelines for a while now for a number of reasons and he hasn’t played enough football for a player of his quality over the last year or so.“If Steven Gerrard can’t guarantee him regular football, which he certainly can’t, then it is probably for the best that Lee moves on. If he does, he will do so with the thanks of the Rangers support.”last_img read more

ASA Industry Continues to Promote Safe Use of Seed Treatments

first_imgASA reminds growers that it is the responsibility of each farmer who uses biotech seeds to ensure the good stewardship of his or her seed supply. That’s why ASA teamed up with the American Seed Trade Association (ASTA) and CropLife America (CLA) to provide farmers with the Guide to Seed Treatment Stewardship, an industry-wide initiative to promote the safe handling and management of treated seed online at www.seed-treatment-guide.com.Endorsed by ASA, National Corn Growers Association, American Farm Bureau Federation, National Cotton Council and the Agricultural Retailers Association, the guide provides farmers and seed companies with critical information and up-to-date guidelines for managing treated seed effectively to further minimize the risk of exposure to non-target organisms.The Guide contains recommendations for such processes as the planting of treated seed; the safe use of seed treatment product; the safe handling and transport of seed; the selection of treatment product; treated seed labeling; and the storage of treated seed.The Seed Treatment Stewardship Guide is available online and in PDF format at www.seed-treatment-guide.com.last_img read more

first_imgRussian River flooded last week in Kodiak leaving some residents scrambling to address the damage.Listen nowLarry Evans woke up in the middle of the night and thought he should throw another log into his wood stove. But when he walked down stairs he found a surprise.“Flipped on the light and got to the landing and everything was floating,” Evans said. “I just got tears in my eyes. I didn’t know what, I just…memories, everything just everything…floating.”The entire first floor of his house was underwater. He acted fast. Evans and one his sons got a pump going and did whatever they could to salvage their belongings. The water did finally recede, but even days later, Evans can still see signs of flooding in his yard.“You can see all the grass is laid flat like a river ran through here, because it did,” Evans said.The Russian River runs behind his house, but Evans said it’s never flooded like this before. He’s also surprised by the amount of rain it took to raise it. The National Weather Service estimates Kodiak got over two inches of rain during the week of the flooding.Upstream is where the water breached the riverbank and created a channel that shot towards Evans and his family. Andrew Finke lives near where this happened. He said the river’s path has changed over the last year, which is making it flood more often.“That didn’t use to affect anybody’s property, but with how the channel has changed its flooding in in a different way,” Finke said.This makes Finke nervous.“It could start flooding people’s septic tanks which could then cause people’s wells to be contaminated,” Fink said. “We’re standing on Leda St. It’s been eroding away. I’d guessing we’ve lost another four feet of it.”Finke and other concerned residents showed up at a recent Kodiak Island Borough Assembly work session and asked for help. Borough manager Michael Powers said they’re monitoring the situation, but its options are limited.Back at Larry Evans’ house, fans are running nonstop. He’s walking through pointing out what he’s done so far. The water was a foot deep, so there’s a lot of work to do.“This is how I started,” Evans said. “It was soaked all the way up here. I’m trying to get it as dry as possible.”Evans doesn’t want mold to grow, so he’s ripping out all the affected carpet, drywall and insulation. Evans thinks the damages will be in the thousands, but he feels like the community is rallying around him.“All I could think of that night was what am I gonna do and uh, well today I got some kind of hope anyway,” Evans said.Evans said “some” good Samaritan dumped a load of gravel in front of where the river flooded, so hopefully that will protect his house for now.last_img read more

A New Addition Makes It The Bad Place on Earth on The

first_img The Good Place Returns to Earth and It’s Everything We All NeededSDCC: Everything is Fine For Season 3 of The Good Place Stay on target The group is back together on The Good Place, and it feels just like old times. Only just slightly off, which is the whole point. One of the things that makes this show so amazing is its ability to constantly reinvent itself. We’re now in an entirely different setting from the one in which we spent the past two seasons. It’s a huge change, and one that could alter the entire tone of the show. This episode is a reminder that that’s not going to happen. Just like in Season Two after Eleanor figured out she was in The Bad Place, we’re still watching the same people work toward the same goal. It’s just a slightly different permutation now.Trevor has joined the group and he’s putting the group through He— The Bad Place all over again. As fun as it is watching Adam Scott play the snotty abrasive demon, it’s even better watching that same character try to be obnoxiously wholesome. He dives into Chidi’s class with the enthusiasm that would make even the most dedicated student consider dropping. And that’s the goal. He starts at small, with Lemon Bars and just an obnoxious eagerness to be everyone’s friend. Then it gets real annoying. He constantly texts Eleanor dated memes, which sounds like Hell… but I’m kinda with Jason on this one. It’s nice to hear “Damn Daniel” spoken aloud again in 2018. Reminds me of simpler times.Pictured: (l-r) Jameela Jamil as Tahani, William Jackson Harper as Chidi, Kristen Bell as Eleanor Shellstrop — (Photo: Justin Lubin/NBC)Though, as far as they know, these characters are meeting for the first time, they really haven’t lost a step with each other. Eleanor is still vaguely annoyed by Tahani, which she deals with by deliberately making her uncomfortable. In this case, likening Tahani’s thin gold bra to her own with rust-colored armpits. She still has a genuine affection for Chidi, though whether it’s romantic or just friends in this go-around remains to be seen. This might be the only new take on the will-they-or-won’t-they trope on TV. We’ve seen them be great together romantically and as just friends. It’s a rare situation where either outcome could be equally satisfying. Especially with Eleanor playing matchmaker during the premiere. Meanwhile, Tahani and Jason start to hit it off themselves, and Jason continues to be a perfect human being. This time, he takes a human spider into an MRI machine hoping the non-existent radiation will turn him into Spider-Man. We should all strive to be so pure.So the group easily falls into their old productive dynamic. The only odd piece is Trevor, who’s torturing them all as if they were still in The Bad Place. He’s aggressively friendly, putting them in uncomfortable situations in a way that doesn’t look deliberate. He’s essentially using the same tactics Michael did to torture them in Season One. Only instead of bringing them together to make them torture each other, he’s trying to pull them apart. He almost succeeds too. He drags them all to an America-themed bar (remember, they’re in Australia), which is packed with satirical background gags. If this is truly how foreigners see the United States, and I’m pretty sure it’s close, we should be at once very proud and very ashamed. Trevor gets Jason and Tahani drunk, hoping they’ll hook up, which would force Tahani to leave the group in shame. He gets Chidi to leave the bar by making him question whether he should be friends with his students at all. And Eleanor almost quits when Trevor invites her to participate in Logan Paul bar trivia. (“Logang for life!” God, Adam Scott is so good at playing the worst person.)Pictured: (l-r) Manny Jacinto as Jason Mendoza, Jameela Jamil as Tahani — (Photo by: Ron Batzdorff/NBC)Ultimately though, The Good Place is optimistic. This is a strong group and it’s going to take more than one annoying day to break them up. Jason, it turns out, was a gentleman and made sure Tahani got home safe before passing out in a dumpster. Eleanor is the only one who seriously considers leaving, and doesn’t show up to class the next day. But Chidi is oddly decisive here. He knows he needs Eleanor as much as she needs him. She helps him break out of his pattern of indecisiveness. He lays all that out to her just as she’s preparing to leave, and keeps the group together. Humans 1, Trevor 0.It’s easy to see how, if this were any other sitcom, this episode would become the formula for this season. But The Good Place has always resisted formula. Thankfully in this case. Though this episode was packed with hilarious jokes and sight gags, it wasn’t one of the show’s best. It took just a little too long for the story to get going. Like we were really just stalling until the final scene of the show. That’s where things really get interesting. Just when it looks like Trevor is going to keep trying to break up the group, the Judge notices that Michael and Janet are missing. Back in the afterlife, she throws Trevor off into the void and declares the experiment over. The four humans will have to rack up points toward getting into the Good Place just like normal, and Michael and Janet will be sent to the Bad Place to be retired and marblized respectively. It turns out Michael’s constant mucking about in time had ripple effects. Like Britain leaving the European Union and the Jacksonville Jaguars being good. You know? That explains a lot.THE GOOD PLACE — “The Brainy Bunch” Episode 303 — Pictured: (l-r) D’Arcy Carden as Janet, Ted Danson as Michael — (Photo by: Ron Batzdorff/NBC)The episode ends with a bit of deus ex… well, Janet ex machina, which would only ever work on this show. It’s set up so well too with Janet trying to summon things on Earth and then failing. As soon as those powers are back, everything starts appearing all at once, creating a barrier between her and Michael and the Judge. That gives them just enough time to escape through the door back to Earth. With the help of my new favorite character this season, the frog-loving doorman. Good thing Michael got him that coffee mug last week. And once again, when it would have been so easy to set up a sitcom formula, The Good Place instead makes up a new one. Now, Michael and Janet are trapped on Earth with the four humans. They’re probably going to have to tell them what’s going on. With this episode, The Good Place felt like it was retreading old ground, but in a different setting. The writing is good enough though, that even a retread is still one of the funniest shows on TV. And now that they’ve changed things up once again, I can’t wait to see where the show goes from here.last_img read more

How Changing an App Platform Allowed This MealReplacement Startup to Grow

first_img Hear from Polar Explorers, ultra marathoners, authors, artists and a range of other unique personalities to better understand the traits that make excellence possible. This story appears in the March 2016 issue of Entrepreneur. Subscribe » Listen Now 2 min read Rosa labs launched in 2013 with a one-person engineering department and off-the-shelf e-commerce apps: one for subscription orders and one for single orders. But then the company’s product — Soylent, the soy-based meal-replacement drink that’s huge with techies — became a hit, and Rosa Labs’ convoluted app setup began hindering growth. So cofounder and CTO John Coogan decided to start from scratch. He hired a three-person development team and gave them their first task: Decide which development platform to use to build the company’s new, completely customized ordering system.The FixCoogan’s team researched many systems, looking for one that matched their needs — and their resources. Rosa’s IT team would remain small, but the company expected to grow and would want to update its software regularly. That led them to the cloud-based Heroku platform, which is known as a “platform-as-a-service.” It allows clients to develop their own integrated e-commerce app, back-end database and other systems — but without paying for servers, or locking them into something that could become outdated. “It’s extremely good at removing the grunt work of getting servers set up and having code executed on a reliable basis,” Coogan says.The ResultsRosa Labs now has a fully custom — built system that can handle customers’ orders, offer new upsells and push surveys to collect customer feedback. Since it was installed last spring, the company’s site runs markedly faster and its subscription conversion rate spiked 84 percent. That led to a 24 percent increase in meals shipped. And because Heroku’s system can always handle updates, Rosa Labs’ developers roll out new code an average of 2.97 times per day — instead of once every couple months, like before.The Second OpinionBefore you go the same route, consider your IT needs: Does investing in customized tech make sense, given where your company is in its growth cycle? And if it does, do you have the resources, talent and attention capital to do it right? “A custom approach tends to drain money and time,” says Chris Locher, VP of software development at the Minneapolis-based web-development firm Nerdery. But the resulting gains can quickly offset that drain.  How Success Happens March 1, 2016last_img read more
