FIFA President To Continue Until…
In the ongoing saga of a man in desperate times, Sepp Blatter will continue to be president of the scandal ridden FIFA organization until the Presidential election is held in February 2016. Six of the seven executives arrested in May remain in custody in Zurich awaiting extradition hearings. Jeffrey Webb, the former Concacaf president and Fifa vice-president, has pleaded not guilty to corruption charges.
Social Media News
More Facebook and Twitter users are getting their news from those platforms, says the Pew Research Center. Some 63% of each group said the social networks are a platform for their news consumption, up from 52% (Twitter) and 47% (Facebook) in 2013. This rise appears to be across age and gender groups. While Facebook and Twitter users report comparable levels of engagement with most news types, Twitter users are more likely to say they see news about national government and politics, international affairs, business, and sports.
Nearly Half Of Shoppers Use Mobile Devices
Almost half, 45%, of shoppers now use a mobile device, up 4% from the year prior, while 18% use the technology to make purchases (up 2% from 2014), according to a survey by financial services provider Synchrony Financial. In addition, the survey of 7,000 shoppers found one-third would make an incremental shopping trip promoted by a text offer and the same portion also buys an item after seeing it on social media.
Synchrony reports 85% of shoppers access social media, with more than half following a brand through the platforms. “It’s clear from our research that shoppers across every segment are becoming more mobile-enabled and savvy, using all digital resources available to them to shop and purchase in and out of the store,” says Toni White, chief marketing officer at Synchrony. “Retailers who focus on creating an integrated customer experience across all channels can differentiate themselves.”
‘WiFi Aware’ to Create Brave New World for Mobile Devices
WiFi is going to get a lot smarter. A new service developed by some of the biggest brands in tech, called /WiFi Aware’ is going to be a game changer. Like GPS but extremely smart, it works in the background to scan and notify you of local devices, points of interest or even people. Developed by the WiFi Alliance—a consortium that includes Microsoft, Apple, Samsung, and Sony, among others, ‘WiFi Aware’ is designed to function without cellular data or even an internet connection.
Starting this week, the Alliance will begin certifying various gadgets, apps, and services as “WiFi Aware”—just like current WiFi- or Bluetooth-compatible products. At the heart of the platform is location—or, more accurately, your device’s proximity to relevant services or devices. The WiFi Alliance designed ‘WiFi Aware’ to operate in crowded environments—a crucial feature given the ubiquity of WiFi-enabled devices—and you have to actively establish a connection with another device to send or receive information. The service was also designed to be application-driven, allowing users to control privacy settings and opt in to notifications. We can expect to see social networks like Facebook or LinkedIn begin rolling out WiFi Aware services before the end of the year.
How Important Is A Make-up Artist?

On the right is what she normally looks like. On the left, is from her most recent released film, ‘Trainwreck’. The magic is due to the accomplished talent of makeup artist extraordinaire: Kyra Panchenko.
