(AP Photo/Brandon Dill) Text size MEMPHIS – A season after he faced what he called the greatest individual challenge of his rookie season, Timberwolves center Karl-Anthony Towns met Memphis star Marc Gasol again in Wednesday’s season opener. At age 20, Towns considers himself something of a changed man who’s better prepared to face the two-time All Star and 2013 NBA Defensive Player of the Year. “I feel I’m stronger, faster,cheap retro jordans, more agile,” Towns said. “I do a few more things with my body than I did last year. I’ve improved my game, added some new toys. I feel very comfortable.” Towns delivered a 31-point, nine-rebound performance in 24½ minutes during a preseason game last week against Memphis and Gasol, who is on a playing-time restriction in his return from foot surgery last season. After a fast start, Towns didn’t have quite as much success. He finished with 21 points, but 14 of them came in the first quarter, and he had just four rebounds. Gasol, who was guarded by Gorgui Dieng most of the night,real cheap jordans retro, was limited to 18 points and three rebounds. Towns doesn’t think there was anybody better when he played a healthy Gasol last season. “Hands down, he was the most challenging matchup,cheap jordans,” Towns said. “It’s just his ability to pass, his ability to shoot. He can play fundamentally sound and unfundamentally sound and score both ways. He’s about 260, 270 pounds. He’s a big guy in there. He takes up a lot of space. “There are a lot of things that challenge you when you go up against Marc Gasol

could stretch beyond next year’s opener,cheap jordans free shipping, while Bradford is on his way to play with Adrian Peterson for the first time since their Boomer Sooner days in 2006. The trade wasn’t even on the Vikings’ radar Thursday night when Spielman discussed Bridgewater’s injury and the team’s options before the preseason finale at U.S. Bank Stadium. The Vikings assumed no team would part with its starting quarterback this close to the season. Not even the Eagles,www.cheap-jordan.net, who were using Bradford as a temporary bridge to Carson Wentz, the rookie No. 2 overall draft pick. Then word out of Philadelphia suggested the Eagles were getting more comfortable with Chase Daniel as their bridge. They were willing to talk about trading Bradford,cheap retro jordans, who is due to make $7 million this season. The negotiations began Friday night and intensified — but only because of new tight ends coach Pat Shurmur, who coached Bradford in St. Louis and in Philadelphia. It was Shurmur who convinced the organization that Bradford had the intelligence and the work ethic to learn Norv Turner’s offense quickly. The tentative plan heading into Monday’s practice is to start Shaun Hill in next Sunday’s season opener at Tennessee. Bradford will be armed with a simplified portion of the offense in case Hill is injured. After that, the coaches will huddle to discuss starting Bradford in the Week 2 home opener against the Packers on “Sunday Night Football.” Hill,cheap air jordan shoes, who backed up Bradford in St. Louis,cheap air jordans, remains a trusted backup. But only short term. The team couldn’t ignore his age (36),amassdenver.com, injury history and the fact he’s never started more than 10 games in 15 NFL seasons. A look at Sunday’s final cuts from around the league validates the Vikings’ decision to think bigger. Their strong need matched Philadelphia’s unique situation. And with a two-year

Becky Autry, CIO at the U.S. Olympic Committee in Colorado Springs, says the outsourcing relationship can evolve, as the vendor proves its abilities. The USOC uses a broad spectrum of security services from AT&T Corp., partly because it's a small nonprofit and its IT staffers "wear a lot of hats," Autry says.

When the USOC started using AT&T in 2000, AT&T had to notify USOC staff before making any changes to network security, but AT&T now has the authority to make changes in the middle of the night without prior approval "if they see the potential for danger,cheap real jordans," says Autry.

FRIDAY, May 6, 2016 (HealthDay News) -- A smartphone app might offer an alternative for certain patients with an irregular heartbeat who must take risky blood-thinning medication every day to lower their risk for stroke.

New research suggests some people with atrial fibrillation might do just as well by diligently monitoring their pulse, perhaps recording their heartbeat via a smartphone EKG, and only taking such drugs on an as-needed basis.

Atrial fibrillation is a serious condition characterized by an abnormal or irregular heart rhythm. Uncontrolled, it can lead to blood clotting and stroke.

Blood-thinning drugs, called anticoagulants, are the usual treatment. For years, the blood thinner warfarin (Coumadin) has been the top go-to drug for such patients.

"The problem is that long-term use of anticoagulants is associated with an increased risk of bleeding," explained study co-author Dr. Francis Marchlinski. He is director of cardiac electrophysiology at the University of Pennsylvania Health System.

"So if you don't need them continuously, it's reasonable to try to avoid them as much as possible. Minor bleeding events can become a major event, or even life-threatening," Marchlinski added.

The new investigation focused on a newer class of blood thinners known as novel anticoagulants (NOACs). These include rivaroxaban (Xarelto), apixaban (Eliquis), and dabigatran (Pradaxa).

These drugs work faster than warfarin and can apply to a broader pool of patients, including those with "non-valvular" atrial fibrillation (abnormal heart rhythm unrelated to a heart-valve problem),cheap retro jordans, researchers say.

Compared to warfarin, ongoing use of NOAC meds is less commonly associated with major bleeding, but bleeding resulting from NOAC use is considered more difficult to treat, the researchers explained.

This approach isn't appropriate for all atrial fibrillation patients, however.

"This potential strategy for intermittent use is only intended for patients with electrocardiogram-demonstrated control of atrial fibrillation, who have undergone an extended period of monitoring, and who are avid pulse-takers that can recognize their atrial fibrillation if it occurs," cautioned Marchlinski, a professor of medicine at Penn's Perelman School of Medicine. "In other words, it's a very select group of highly motivated patients."

Marchlinski and his colleagues are scheduled to present their findings Friday in San Francisco at the annual meeting of the Heart Rhythm Society.

To assess the potential of an "as-needed" approach to anticoagulant use for atrial fibrillation, the team focused on 100 patients, aged 56 to 72, previously on a daily regimen of NOAC medications.

When the study was launched, none had shown signs of atrial fibrillation trouble for an "extended period of time." All checked their pulse twice daily, including nine who monitored their heart rhythm using a smartphone-enabled device.

Such devices have become increasingly accessible and accurate in recent years, the study authors said.

In close consultation with their physicians, the patients were given NOAC drugs to have on hand. The study participants were told to avoid taking them unless they suspected or were sure they were experiencing an atrial fibrillation-related event lasting between one to two hours. Patient-controlled twice daily pulse-monitoring was mandatory.

Over the following 18 months, about one-quarter of the patients had to take their NOAC blood-thinning medication at least once. Only six patients ultimately ended up returning to a daily regimen of NOAC, the study found.

Also, none of the patients experienced either a stroke or transient ischemic attack (mini-stroke). And only one experienced what was described as "a minor bleeding event."

Still,cheap jordan shoes, the researchers cautioned that the current study is an investigational "pilot study," and said more research will be needed to confirm the findings.

Dr. Gregg Fonarow, a professor of cardiology at the University of California, Los Angeles, seconded that point.

"As this was a relatively small study of a select group of patients with a modest follow-up period and without a control group, larger studies with longer-term follow-up are needed before this strategy should be further considered," Fonarow said.

Moreover, data and conclusions presented at meetings are usually considered preliminary until published in a peer-reviewed medical journal.

Evelyn Houser, a North Philadelphia grandmother, didn't live to see the end of what she started six years ago.

Houser, who died in September,cheap air jordan shoes, was a lead plaintiff in the landmark $15 million settlement of a class-action suit this week that may help hundreds of thousands of people with criminal records get jobs.

"My mom was always a determined person,real cheap jordans retro," said her son, Cephas Houser. "She would dig, dig, and dig, until she found something that she could fight."

The U.S. Commerce Department agreed Tuesday to pay $15 million to settle the lawsuit, which involves an estimated 450,000 African Americans and Latinos who may have been passed over for jobs because of the Census Bureau's background-check recruiting practices.

As the bureau was hiring for the 2010 census, 9.7 percent of Americans were jobless. Even a temp job as a census taker drew millions of applicants eager to earn $17.75 an hour.

Houser figured that she would easily land one of 1.2 million openings because she held the same job during the 1990 census. She was turned aside.

In 2010, Houser, then 69, became a lead plaintiff in the federal class-action suit against the Census Bureau. The suit alleged the bureau's hiring policies involving criminal-background checks discriminated disproportionately against African Americans and Latinos, because their arrest and conviction rates tend to be higher.

"It's like a slap in the face," Houser said when the suit was filed.

In 1981, nine years before her 1990 stint with the Census Bureau, Houser was a 39-year-old mother of four who had run out of money and food stamps when she found a check as she was taking out trash.

"I went home and told my kids, 'God sent me a piece of paper that says we're going to eat tonight,jordans for cheap,' " she said in 2010.

Houser tried to cash it and was arrested,cheap jordans, but not convicted. Instead, she was enrolled in an alternate rehabilitation program and maintained a clean record.

Her arrest was not a problem in 1990, but in 2010 the Census Bureau sought documentation from everyone with any kind of record.

"Americans must be confident that, if . . . a census taker must come to their door to count them, we've taken steps to ensure their safety," a census spokesman said when the suit was filed in New York.

It turned out many applicants' records included errors not easily remedied during the application process. Others had no records but were caught up in cases of mistaken identity, plaintiffs' lawyers said in a news conference.

The bureau's only comment Wednesday was to outline terms of the agreement. It admitted no liability.

Of the $15 million settlement, $5 million will be used to help class members clear errors in their criminal records. Industrial organizational psychologists will help the bureau redesign its hiring process to properly evaluate applicants' records. Class members will get advance notice of 2020 census jobs.

"What makes it landmark is the scope of the settlement and the number of impacted individuals," said Kristen Clarke, president and executive director of the Lawyers' Committee for Civil Rights Under the Law,cheap jordans online, one of the attorneys in the case.

Clarke estimated 70 million Americans, or one in three people of working age, have some sort of criminal record.

"The fact that we're dealing with a federal government agency sends a powerful . . . message" to public and private employers that "no job seeker should be automatically" be disqualified because of a criminal record, she said.

Based in New York but with Penn origins, Fresh Prints has "campus managers" such as Weinsten at 80 schools throughout the United States. It was founded by students not only to sell to other students, but also to give them a taste of what it's like to be an entrepreneur.

"They've set up a program where I get to run my own start-up, but they provide me with tools along the way," Weinsten said on a recent visit to Tee Vision Printing near Kensington. It's one of eight printers Fresh Prints uses around the country.

Weinsten's sales are starting to mean some serious beer-and-pizza money. Her total for the 2015-16 school year, her first in business: $163,500, of which she got to keep $13,997.

All Fresh Prints campus managers are entitled to at least 7 percent of sales, and up to 9 percent, based on bonuses for reaching certain sales goals. With few exceptions, a manager has an entire campus to himself - or herself. In the Philadelphia area, Penn is the only campus where Fresh Prints is active.

"We'd love to have more Philly schools," said Jolijt (Yo-light) Tamanaha, 23, a 2015 political science graduate from Washington University in St. Louis and chief marketing officer at Fresh Prints.

Penn has been consistently fertile ground for the venture since friends Sasha Sherman and Jason Israel started it there and at Washington University in 2009, seeing sales potential in all the sororities and fraternities, athletic and service clubs.

Two years later, the company, with a presence on nine campuses, was profitable but not big enough to support Sherman and Israel, who were graduating. They sold Fresh Prints at an undisclosed price to two students who were interested in growing it and running a business: Jacob Goodman and Josh Arbit, students and fraternity brothers at Washington University. Goodman, a New York native, was majoring in finance; Arbit, from Teaneck, N.J.,jordans for cheap, in entrepreneurship.

Goodman and Arbit spent the 21/2 years until they graduated expanding operations to other campuses, mostly through student referrals. Fresh Prints reported $1.9 million in revenue in the last 12 months.

Product design is primarily through https://freshprints.com/. Customers can either do their own designs or use one available through Fresh Prints.

A campus manager's main job is to develop and process sales. That explains why the application process is "painfully long," Tamanaha said. "We only hire 3 percent of the people who start the application."

But those who make it through the five rounds - written questions, behavioral analysis, case studies, mock email sales pitches to Goodman, and a phone interview - have demonstrated what Tamanaha said is a trademark characteristic of a successful campus manager: persistence.

Because of the time it takes to develop skills and a market, Fresh Prints will not hire campus managers who are beyond their sophomore year.

Weinsten cited sales as the biggest learning curve,cheap air jordans, "figuring out the best way to reach people. For college kids, I text a lot." For leads, she relies on social media, such as event announcements on Facebook,cheap jordan shoes, and on fliers distributed on Penn's campus.

Though there are loads of custom-apparel vendors on the internet, Weinsten said she emphasizes her locally based service, which enables order fulfillment in as little as a day or two in a pinch (a week to 10 days is preferred), and "extremely low prices."

"We know a lot of these kids are working on tight budgets," she said.

Weinsten will be looking to tap more of those budgets in the fall: "My goal is to get over $200,000 in sales next year."

VILLANOVA finished 6-5 last season, despite losing Walter Payton Award-winning quarterback John Robertson early and most of their running backs by November. If the Wildcats had gone 7-4, they probably would have made the NCAA playoffs. The wounds were mostly self-inflected. The Wildcats had a fumble returned for a length-of-the-field touchdown against them in an 11-point September home loss to Penn. They gave up three non-offensive touchdowns in a season-ending, nine-point loss at James Madison, when they still had a chance to earn a share of the Colonial Athletic Association title. And there was a 28-21,cheap jordan shoes, late-October loss at Towson in which then-redshirt freshman Zach Bednarczyk threw two interceptions that came back all the way, including an 86-yarder with just under five minutes to go when the Wildcats were threatening to tie the game. That's a bunch of scars. On Saturday afternoon the Wildcats, who beat Lehigh at home last week by five, will host Towson (also 1-1) in a CAA opener. Their three games after this are against Lafayette, Elon and Rhode Island, all teams they figure to be favored over, before they have to go to preseason favorite Richmond, which is ranked second in FCS. Which means . . . "It's interesting that the third game of the year could put you in a position like this," said coach Andy Talley, who's in his 32nd and final season. "It's a must-win, if you want to get ready to get going in the CAA. As we move down the line, the heavier part of our schedule, at least on paper, is in the second half. If we could somehow carve out a win, I think it would be a tremendous lead-in for us. So there's a lot of hype around it. We'll get a good idea of what we're going to be this year." The Tigers have taken three of the last five meetings, though Villanova did win by 28 on the Main Line two years ago. Bednarczyk doesn't think the Wildcats are using what happened last season as any added fuel. But neither have they forgotten. Especially him. "There's probably a little bit of that, but no one's going around the locker room saying we have to get revenge on these guys,cheap jordans for sale," he explained. "We knew we had a good shot at winning the game last year if we just eliminated some mistakes. If we don't beat ourselves, we believe we're good enough to beat anyone. "We're watching film on them from this year. But I also watched the game from last year. It was real frustrating to see some of the bad decisions I made. I wouldn't throw those balls blindly. But looking back on that, it was good for me to see (again). Even with those mistakes, we almost won the game. I learned from it. It made me a better player. You just don't want the lessons to be so severe. In the long run, it helps. But in the moment, it was horrible." That game was only his fourth start. He completed 58 percent of his passes for 1,396 yards,cheap air jordan shoes, with 10 TDs and seven picks. He was also the team's top rusher, with 515 yards and five scores on 106 carries. It was enough to get him the CAA co-Offensive Rookie of the Year. This season he's thrown for only 175 yards and no TDs, but the opener was at FBS Pitt. Last week, the team ran for almost 400, while throwing only three times in the second half. "That's probably not going to happen every Saturday," Talley said. "The protection up front has to improve a little bit so Zach (who's rushed for 94 on 26 attempts) doesn't have to pull it down and take off as much. And we're a little light in the receiving corps. We're still trying to develop some guys there. There's not a go-to guy he feels totally comfortable with yet." Of course, it's only mid-September, even though conventional wisdom would suggest it's not really too early. Not if you want to get back to the postseason. "That's why in the offseason the coaches were preaching how every single play has a huge impact," Bednarczyk said. "We were, like,yourcellan.com, three plays away from winning this game last year. Same with JMU. But we didn't. We played good football for, like, 97 percent of the game and it didn't matter, because the other 3 percent killed us. That's how fragile this stuff is. Once you've seen that side of it you, never want to go through it anymore." Agenda Towson at Villanova Saturday, 3:30 Villanova Stadium TV: Comcast SportsNet. Radio: 610 Sports (WTEL-AM). Records: Both teams 1-1. This is the CAA opener for each. History: Villanova leads, 7-5. About Towson: Tigers beat St. Francis at home, 35-28, by scoring the final 25 points, 22 of them in the second half...They opened with a 56-20 loss at FBS South Florida...QB Morgan Mahalak, a transfer from Oregon, was injured and replaced by redshirt sophomore Ellis Knudson, who threw for 301 yards on only 10 completions vs. St. Francis. About Villanova: Wildcats got Andy Talley his 250th career victory, 26-21, over visiting Lehigh, after trailing, 14-6, at halftime...They ran for almost 400 yards and threw only three passes in the second half...Javon White had a career-best 155 yards on 23 carries,cheap jordans, which tied a career high...Two different kickers missed extra points.

MONDAY, Nov. 28,jordans for cheap, 2016 (HealthDay News) -- A pediatrician can play an important part in helping children adjust when their parents split up, a new American Academy of Pediatrics report says.

"The pediatrician can help parents understand their children's reactions to divorce or separation," said report co-lead author Dr. Carol Weitzman, chairwoman of the AAP's Section on Developmental and Behavioral Pediatrics.

"Those reactions will vary, depending on age and stage of development. Parents should be encouraged to answer their children's questions honestly,yourcellan.com, and allow them to express their own feelings," she said in an AAP news release.

Each year, parents of more than 1 million children in the United States break up, and the youngsters may suffer emotional trauma and need extra support, according to the report.

Published online Nov. 28 and in the December issue of the journal Pediatrics, the report is a guide for doctors.

The report pointed out that children of unmarried parents who are splitting up face the same challenges and need the same support as those whose parents are divorcing. A pediatrician can help most by maintaining neutral relationships with both parents and advising them when intervention is needed, the report said.

Many children's behavior changes in the first year of parent separation, but most problems clear up within two to three years, according to the report. Still, a child's sense of loss may last for years and may be acute during holidays,cheap jordans free shipping, birthdays or other special events, the report said.

Factors that affect how kids respond include their temperament, the parents' ability to focus on the youngsters' needs and feelings, and child-parent relationships before and after the split.

Kids' emotions, behaviors and needs are likely to change as they get older, the report noted. Among the potential adjustment challenges they face are changes in custody arrangements, adapting to stepfamilies and parents' dating and sexual activities.

"Children's routines -- such as school, extracurricular activities and their contact with friends and family -- should remain as normal and unchanged as possible," said Dr. Michael Yogman, chairman of the AAP's Committee on Psychosocial Aspects of Child and Family Health.

"Children need to understand that they did not cause the divorce, and have their questions answered honestly, at their level of understanding," he added.

If necessary, pediatricians should refer families to mental health and child-focused professionals with expertise in divorce, the report said.

The report, in the December issue of Pediatrics, was published online Nov. 28.

Now that the "Nutter Era" is officially past tense, and Jim Kenney is managing this obstreperous city, we'll be seeing a lot less of Michael Nutter, the person. Yet the architectural additions and deletions that occurred during his tenure will stay with us for a long time. What were its hallmarks? Slideshow Changing Skyline: The best and worst architecture of the Nutter era Advertisment of Gallery: Sadly,www.yourcellan.com, this period yielded very little of the kind of architecture that ends up in the history books. That's partly because Nutter took office as the United States was slipping into the Great Recession and developers' best-laid plans were going awry. Lacking cash for major public undertakings, Nutter's team became an early adopter of tactical urbanism, like pop-up beer gardens and painted bike lanes. One of his administration's most lasting design legacies turned out to be its enthusiastic embrace of the temporary. At the other end of the spectrum was a trend so ubiquitous it practically flew under the radar: the rowhouse boom. Roughly 4,000 of these vertical single-family houses were erected during the Nutter years, catapulting unchanging redbrick neighborhoods into the 21st century. Every mayor is, deep down, a master builder. Many qualities that make a project memorable, like materials and formal details,cheap retro jordans, are beyond the city's control, but a mayor can set the tone, establish priorities, and, most crucially, use the respect for the office to twist arms. Nutter and his team did that with varying degrees of success. Here are my 15 candidates for the best and worst designs completed during his tenure. You can start disagreeing now. The good The new rowhouse. Packed with the kind of amenities once synonymous with a house in the suburbs, the teeny trinity has morphed into a McRowhouse - bigger, taller, wider, grander,cheap jordans free shipping, and more expensive. The new designs allow people to live in the city without giving up the domestic comforts that Americans prize. Unfortunately, too many come with front-loaded garages. They can also upset local economic and class dynamics. Singh Center for Nanotechnology. This sublime glass outcrop at 33d and Walnut by Weiss Manfredi is as much a piece of man-made topography as it is a building. The University of Pennsylvania building is also the only Philadelphia design during Nutter's tenure to make the cover of Architectural Record. The Barnes Foundation. Despite being crammed onto a site that is too small for its purpose, and that devotes too much space to the car, the museum on the Parkway by Tod Williams and Billie Tsien is itself a great, sensuous work of art. The architects pulled off the impossible trick of replicating the Barnes' Merion galleries without making them feel embalmed. Antoinette Westphal College of Media Arts & Design. MS&R's Jefferey Scherer and Garth Rockcastle took the 1978 "decorated shed" created by Robert Venturi and Denise Scott Brown and blew out the interior, turning an open-plan office space into a mind-blowing, Escher-inspired puzzle. Just walking into the Drexel University building at 35th and Market will make you more creative. Affordable housing. Two projects, Paseo Verde at Ninth and Berks and the John C. Anderson Apartments on 13th Street, offer proof that low-income housing can slip easily into the urban fabric, and look good doing so. Transit-friendly Paseo Verde includes 67 market-rate units and ground-floor retail, and Anderson caters to LGBT seniors. Neither would exist without Nutter administration support. Both are the work of WRT. Cheesecake Factory building. Who would have expected a three-story commercial building to make our hearts race? BCJ's cutaway at 15th and Walnut challenges the modernist idea that glass walls are curtains that lightly enclose space. Instead, you perceive this building as having thickness. Great saves. Although Nutter is fairly criticized for his expedient treatment of Philadelphia's historic patrimony, he deserves applause for some big rescues: Willis Hale's long-suffering Divine Lorraine on North Broad and a pair of Germantown white elephants, the Nugent and Presser Homes. Sensitively renovated by JKR Partners, both house low-income seniors. Pine and Spruce bike lanes. There were bike lanes before, but these wide, buffered crosstown versions helped legitimize bicycles as transport. Niche parks. The Nutter era was a golden age for park building, especially parks that cater to specific users. Sisters Cities serves the preschool set, Paine's Park provides a lush oasis for skateboarders, and the Schuylkill Banks Boardwalk lets trail users walk on water. And now the bad . . . 1900 Arch apartments. This building wasn't designed,cheap jordans, it was canned. Light-repelling metal panels span the surface, mimicking a retail bar code in a depressing gray-blue color scheme. For some reason,cheap real jordans, a large patch of the 19th Street facade has no windows. How can such a dreary building rub elbows with Norman Foster's elegant Comcast tower? Blame Varenhorst architects and developer PMC. Home2Suites. This is what happens when a highway motel chain dumps its standard formula into the big city. Slathered with sickly yellow, synthetic stucco - another architectural scourge - it looks like a plastic box next to the mighty stone Reading Terminal Market. Given that public subsidies covered nearly half the $59 million cost, we were badly overcharged. Family Court. Bad enough that the Pennsylvania Supreme Court outsourced a temple of justice to a second-rate office developer and well-connected lawyer, but did the EwingCole design at 15th and Arch have to be a variation of the boxy Penn Center buildings? With the lights on at night, it looks as though someone forgot to finish the interior walls. SugarHouse Casino. Tell me again why we sacrificed a beautiful stretch of the Delaware River for a big, windowless box and an even bigger garage? Great losses. Let us always remember that the dazzling, historically protected Boyd Theater was lost on Nutter's watch, in a bait-and-switch developer deal. During his tenure, churches fell with depressing regularity, including ones designed by noted architects like Samuel Sloan and John Notman. North Broad light poles. The city spent $14 million on a North Broad Street makeover and all we got was a phalanx of metal poles. The money would be better spent fixing sidewalks and making the street safer for pedestrians. ingasaffron@gmail.com 215-854-2213@ingasaffron www.philly.com/saffron More Coverage Published: January 22, 2016 ?? 3:01 AM EST The Philadelphia Inquirer

Shopping is becoming even more high tech,cheap jordans for sale, and those who can personalize the experience through the click of a mouse will leave those who can't in the dust.


Retailers meet to learn how to keep customers clicking




The merging of technology and data can boost retailers' profits, draw customers, increase brand awareness, and instill loyalty. That was the recurring message at the Shop.org Digital Summit hosted by the National Retail Federation here this week.

The two-day trade show wrapped up Wednesday at the Pennsylvania Convention Center.

With online retailing, "the challenge is the consumer is moving faster than companies are able to adapt,jordans for cheap," said Don Nelson of New York-based eClerx L.L.C., which provides digital marketing services. He was among those trolling for new customers in the cavernous Expo Hall that showcased the latest technologies and products for retailers. "In some cases, they are bumping up against what is possible, and wanting more.

"The impact is going to be huge, not just on the retailers,real cheap jordans retro, but also the service providers and how we take care of those retailers," he said.

OSF Global Services of San Francisco had a booth showing off a machine that allows a shopper to see what she would look like in a dress without having to try it on. With the touch of a button on the screen, the dress is overlayed on what the customer is wearing - which could make fitting rooms obsolete.

A 40-foot-long Airstream recreational vehicle was parked near the back of the convention hall by Needle of Salt Lake City, with company representatives meeting inside with potential clients. The advocate-assisted e-commerce firm provides online marketing platforms to companies. Among its clients are Nikon; NCL Corp., operator of the Norwegian cruise line; and Coach.

Retail industry experts say that when retailers close a bricks-and-mortar store, they generally expect to recapture 25 percent to 30 percent of those sales either at a nearby store or online.

During the event, panel discussions with such titles as "The Power of Customer Lifetime Value" and "End Customer Churn" addressed how to keep the best customers.

One exhibitor, Richrelevance of San Francisco, already has a presence in Europe, but wants to establish a foothold in the United States with its retail kiosks.

The idea being, when a customer comes into a store to pick up an online order, a kiosk at the front counter will feature other pieces of clothing to complement that item. By touching the "add to cart" button on the kiosk screen that shows the item's price, a clerk can add it to the customer's bill.

Richrelevance calls this "extending the online shopping experience into the store" to help drive sales.

Among the event presenters Tuesday was Mike George, CEO of West Chester-based QVC Inc.,yourcellan.com, who went into the challenges facing organizations like his that are undergoing a digital transformation. George said about 50 percent of QVC's shopping business was now done online, and the other half through orders off the TV screen.

Doug Mack, CEO of Fanatics, the largest online branded sports apparel company, gave a keynote address Tuesday. He recalled how he went after top talent in the technology and mobile design fields when he joined the company 18 months ago.

"You can take data and technology to make a good company a great company," he said.

Mack said Fanatics' website is expected to get 250 million visits this year, and the company will ship 31 million items around the world.

The "web doctors," who critiqued retailers' websites, were kept busy both days. They had their own area in the Expo Hall with "The Doctor Is In" signage.

The most important suggestion that Sue Chapman, director of merchandising practice for Demandware of Burlington, Mass., made was to personalize an online shopping home page. Second, keep navigation paths concise for shoppers. And third, give them a full page of products to pick from.

Chapman, whose company provides software and other technology to develop retail websites, said the pace of technology the last few years has been incredible.
"We're going to do everything on the iPhone or tablet," she said. "You can shop now wherever you are,cheap real jordans, be it on the beach or on the bus, and it gets delivered to your house the next day. We've removed every obstacle there is in getting whatever we want, when we want it."

WEST JORDAN — On any other day, the hill wouldn’t have even earned Danny Widerburg’s attention, let alone his respect. But because it came just before the 50-mile mark of a 100-mile race, it was a mental monster that, without help, he’s not sure he could have successfully conquered. “It was 100 yards before the mile-50 aid station,” the West Jordan father of two said. “I was dead on the side of the road — out of nowhere. I had been in an up-zone all day. We got to a mediocre hill, at best. ? And I was just defeated by it.” He looked to his friend, Andrew Jensen, to keep him moving through what the men not-so-affectionately refer to as “the low places.” Their friendship, born at an ultra finish line and forged through rainy races and early morning adventures,cheap jordans online, has seen them push, pull and inspire each other to success that might not have been possible alone. “He was there, risking getting cut off because I was being a complete wimp,” Widerburg said. To which, Jensen shakes his head. “He probably would have done better without me, honestly,” said Jensen, as Widerburg objects. “I slow him down. He pushes me.” Widerburg counters, “He pushes me.” The reality is that their friendship enhances not only their ultra racing experiences, but the rest of their lives as well. Nowhere is that more apparent than it was on the track at Copper Hills High School this weekend. The two men attempted what they called “The Hunger Run 2016: The Revenge.” The goal was to run 100 miles in 24 hours to encourage donations — in money and canned goods — for the Utah Food Bank. It’s the second year they’ve attempted the goal, which was Widerburg’s way of supporting the Food Bank fundraising effort of his children’s elementary school. Widerburg’s wife, Courtnie, has led the fundraising effort of Mountain Shadows Elementary the last few years, and it was during an early morning run last fall that he decided running 100 miles on a track might be shocking enough to inspire a little more support for the effort. He posted the event on Facebook and invited others to come run and/or donate to the Utah Food Bank. Jensen, who met Widerburg at the finish line of a 100-mile race in August, was intrigued and decided to join him. Not only was the weather for last year’s event horrendous,cheap jordans for sale, but Widerburg woke up with the flu. After 54 miles, the two decided to call it a race. “As soon as I failed last time,cheap jordans,” he said as we circled the track in the wee hours of Sunday morning. “Because I failed. It doesn’t matter if I was sick or not. It just killed me. ? I understood, but I’d never not finished a race, so it killed me. I had to come out and get revenge on it.” During the 54 frigid, wet miles the two men covered in the 2015 effort, a bond was born. It was forged into deep affection and unflappable loyalty through a year of training and racing that has pushed them each in different circumstances to the brink of suffering so significant, they question not only their decisions but their commitment to a sport that is equal parts brutal and beautiful. They come from very different backgrounds,yourcellan.com, are polar opposites in personality, but share a passion for so many things that each man holds dear — family, Christian faith and ultra running. Their conversations vacillate from silly, inside jokes to moving, profound lessons learned participating in a sport that tortures them as much as it inspires them. “This is not a fun thing to do,” Jensen said as Widerburg laughs. “It’s really, truly not. My legs are hurting. I want to be done. I wanted to be done at the 100-K mark. ? But I committed to him, I would go as far as he’s going to go. It probably sounds cheesy, but it’s really just about love. I love my buddy. We’ve been though a lot together.” Widerburg says something about “Dimple Dell, rainy races and hooter booty shorts” and then Jensen details how his friend posted pictures of him sleeping on the side of a trail on Facebook. Both men know that asking people to donate to the Utah Food Bank at this time of year is tough. But,cheap air jordans, they point out, it is important that while we celebrate the holidays, we reach out to those who are suffering. Widerburg was blown away by the support they received in the first year, and said this year promises to equal or surpass last year’s donations. The men, who were joined by various friends and even a few strangers throughout the 24 hours, said they see themselves continuing this holiday tradition for as long as they are able. They know some people don’t understand their passion for ultra racing, but they’re grateful for the support from the running community and beyond. “People think we’re just running and having a good time,” Widerburg said. “There are a lot of lows. A lot of lows, a lot of dark, and a lot of demons being cast out, a lot of quiet crying moments. And just complete fun.” Just like they are encouraged and supported by one another, they are moved to continue the mentally monotonous, physically painful task of circling the track 400 times by the way others support the fundraising effort. As I circled the track with them for a couple of hours in the middle of a cold, windy night, I saw what they were doing as an extension of the friendship they offer to each other and other runners during the “dark” parts of those ultra runs. No one knows when or why they might need some help through a low point, and their effort is a reminder to simply give what you can, when you can because we’re all running the same race. But instead of running against each other, we’re running with each other. And everyone will have a turn pushing and being pushed. By their 6 a.m. cutoff, Widerburg had extracted his revenge with 100 miles complete. Jensen, who got sick after I left and had to take a short nap, finished with 92 miles. Next year it will be Jensen seeking revenge as they're already planning next year's event. I left them slightly cold and very tired. But my short time with them also convinced me that no effort to reach out to another is insignificant, no act of loyalty wasted. Email: adonaldson@deseretnews.com Twitter: adonsports

(Adds reaction from Trump,jordans for cheap, paragraphs 1, 7-8, changes dateline)

By Ian Simpson and Roberta Rampton

WASHINGTON/WEST PAlM BEACH, Fla.,real cheap jordans retro, Nov 26 (Reuters) -
D emocrat Hillary Clinton's campaign will take part in a recount
of Wisconsin votes in the U.S. presidential race, an effort
Republican winner Donald Trump called "ridiculous" on Saturday.

Wisconsin's election board on Friday approved the recount
requested by Green Party candidate Jill Stein. She has said she
wants to guarantee the integrity of the U.S. voting system since
computer hacking had marked the Nov. 8 election.

Marc Elias, the Clinton campaign counsel, said the campaign
would take part in the recount in Wisconsin as well as in the
other battleground states of Pennsylvania and Michigan if
recounts were mounted there.

Elias said in a statement on the Medium website that the
Clinton campaign had not planned to seek a recount since its own
investigation had failed to turn up any sign of hacking of
voting systems.

"But now that a recount has been initiated in Wisconsin, we
intend to participate in order to ensure the process proceeds in
a manner that is fair to all sides," Elias said.

Clinton's campaign should be legally represented in
Wisconsin to be able to monitor the recount, he said.

In a statement, Trump said the three states had been won by
wide margins, including by more than 70,000 votes in
Pennsylvania. The recount is a "scam by the Green Party for an
election that has already been conceded," he said.

The $7 million Stein has sought to raise for the recounts is
a way "to fill her coffers with money, most of which she will
never even spend on this ridiculous recount," he said.

Although Trump won the Electoral College tally, Clinton
will have won the national popular vote by more than 2 million
ballots when the final results are in.

Stein has raised $5.8 million of the $7 million needed to
cover fees and legal costs for the three recounts, according to
her campaign website. The deadline for filing a recount bid in
Pennsylvania is Monday.

The voting margins make it highly unlikely any recounts
would end up giving Clinton a win in all three states, which
