Pretoria proudly Bafana Bafana

first_img2 March 2010 Pretoria’s streets were a sea of yellow and green on Tuesday as South Africans wearing Bafana Bafana jerseys celebrated the 100 days countdown to the 2010 Fifa World Cup. Speaking to BuaNews, vuvuzelas in hand, ordinary South Africans said they wanted to be part of the celebrations, and assured the national team that they were behind them. A second-year student from the University of Pretoria, Samantha Naidoo, 21, said she wouldn’t miss the “once-in-a-lifetime” event for anything. Wearing her yellow jersey, Naidoo said she had already bought tickets for four matches, including the opening game. “It is history in the making, which may never come back in our lifetime, and I want the whole world to see how proud we are of our country,” Naidoo said. Nokwanda Makaula, 34, from the Eastern Cape, said the tournament would put Africa, especially South Africa, on the map. “Generations to come will know that the first world cup in Africa was held here,” Makaula said, adding that she would be watching all the matches at the fan parks. “I would have loved to go to the stadiums, but I don’t have the money, but I’ll watch the games at the fan parks and big screens organised by the municipalities,” Makaula told BuaNews. For 40-year-old Bheki Mkhize from Sunnyside, Pretoria, the World Cup will boost the country’s economy. “Everyone is looking forward to coming to the country, and that means more money for us,” Mkhize said. “After today’s celebrations, no one will ever doubt that the tournament is really coming here and we are ready.” With the little income she gets from selling fruits in central Pretoria, Lynette Tau, 38, said she had managed to buy the national team’s soccer jersey. “I was so excited and saved my money so that I can have enough to buy the jersey, and I did. “I’m a proud South African, and hopefully I will live longer to tell my grandchildren about it,” Tau said, adding that it wasn’t about winning the World Cup, but about proving to the world that the country is capable of hosting big events just like any developed country.

How You Lose Your Dream Client In The Sales Conversation

first_imgWhen you understand your dream client’s challenges and know what they need to do, it can be easy to rush to give them the right answer. You know what the solution is, and you know exactly how to help your prospect get the better result they need. When this approach causes your dream client to slow down, retreat, disengage or go dark, it’s because you disconnected from them in the sales conversation. Getting too far ahead is how you lose your dream client in the sales conversation.Too Many Steps Ahead on the PathThe contacts with whom you are having the sales conversation may be trying to understand why they are struggling to produce the result they need, what options are available to them, and whether or not something might work for them individually. In short, if they withdraw from the conversation, it is because they want to explore and collaborate.You may know everything you need to offer them solid advice as to what they should do without any more conversation. Your dream client may still need more conversation. Because you sell every day, you are way ahead of your dream client in the sales conversation. You have disconnected from them by getting too many steps ahead of them on the path.Decoupling from the Sales ConversationYou are in a discovery call, and you are talking with your contacts about why they might change, what is possible, and how they might think about some initiative to improve things. They are engaged with you in this conversation, and you are all together in the place. In The Lost Art of Closing, I called this commitment, Explore. You might call it discovery or diagnosis, both of which work, but I prefer the broadening of the idea, as it eliminates asking a “What’s keep you up at night” kind of approach.Imagine this exploration provides you with the clearest of view of their problem and its solution. You are right, and you are confident. You know what your contacts need to do, so you explain the solution and how your contacts should move forward. The conversation is now different, and your contacts lean back instead of leaning forward. When this is true, it’s because you left the conversation and moved on to another conversation, one they weren’t quite prepared to have. You decoupled from them, and in doing so, you left them behind.In the parlance of The Lost Art of Closing, you skipped a number of the ten commitments, including change, collaborate, consensus, and invest and went straight to reviewing a potential solution. To be clear, you may talk about the solution because it is a necessary part of an early conversation. If you talk about it as a way of exploring possible ideas, you stay connected by not framing the solution as your final answer (even though it very well might be).No more pushy sales tactics. The Lost Art of Closing shows you how to proactively lead your customer and close your sales. As Fast as They Can Go and No FasterI wrote an entire book on controlling the process, winning deals, and ensuring you don’t take more time than is necessary to win deals by providing you help your dream client have the conversations they need and to make and keep the commitments that allow them to move forward.You might want to speed the deal along because you need it, in which case, your speed becomes your prospect’s obstacle to an agreement. Your client may want to speed things up because they want to get the better results sooner, causing them to make decisions that slow or kill the initiative because they didn’t want to take the time to do something like, acquire an executive sponsor or build consensus. Fast is slow, and slow is fast.Some of your dream clients are going to move faster than others. A few of them are going to need more time than you believe they should. They might need to go over ground you already covered or bring in new stakeholders who need to go back to the beginning of the conversation. You cannot control the speed of the deal by skipping past the discussions and the necessary commitments.You can only go as fast as your client can go and no faster, which makes it your job to control the process, which is to say “sell the process,” and provide the roadmap that helps your dream client know what they need to do and helps keep you connected.Where Are You? Where Are They?The Lost Art of Closing is my attempt to provide a map of the terrain. It is helpful to know where your client is in the sales conversation so you can serve them where they are, not where you want them to be. It is helpful to be able to share with your prospective client where they are and what comes next for most of the people with whom you engage in this process.How you increase the speed of the deal (velocity) is by linking the necessary conversations together and accelerating the commitments, not by skipping them or pretending they aren’t needed when they are.The idea here is a nonlinear methodology. You don’t have to have ten meetings to get through the ten commitments, and in fact, some B2C salespeople have used this framework, sharing that they accomplish nine of the ten in a single meeting. As soon as people who use this idea recognize how far out in front of their prospects they are, they go back and pick them up where they left them. Then they make sure they move them forward at a pace that provides the result both they and their prospective clients need. Essential Reading!

That, and when you look effortless and have messy hair.”She also likes a good sense of humor and guys who are relaxed.And she hates pickup lines. During her video shoot she says that she thinks “all pickup lines are horrible — none of them work. You just walk up… make a fool of yourself.”last_img read more

Cardiff to be active in January window says Warnock

first_imgCardiff manager Neil Warnock has revealed that the club will bring in reinforcement in “two or three positions” when the transfer window opens in January.Warnock has been playing Callum Paterson, a right back in the striker role in recent games, and has identified the center forward position as one of his priorities.“We’re looking at two or three positions,” Warnock told Sky Sports.“We’ve made offers for strikers but it’s not as simple as that. Not only is it the offer that’s got to be accepted but is they better than what you’ve got in January? Are the teams going to let good players go in January?AAIB responds to Sala’s family request to recover the plane’s wreckage Manuel R. Medina – August 14, 2019 The Air Accidents Investigation Branch says they already explained their decision not to recover the plane’s wreckage to Sala’s family and the pilot’s.“We’re not the market where we can go and spend anything like the top half of the Premier League. We’ve got a certain market and we’ve got to try and get the best out of it.“I don’t think we will be spending silly money – well, I know we won’t. Mehmet Dalman, the chairman, he’s been working hard to bring a striker in. He knows how difficult it is now because it is a bad time to try and get one in.“They’ve always been supportive but for me, if they’re not better than what we are or if it’s ridiculous money I’d rather stick with what we’ve got. I know it sounds silly but I’d rather stick with what we’ve got, because we’ve got a great group.”last_img read more

Karma will reveal the secondgeneration Revero in Shanghai

first_img 2019 Honda Odyssey offers plenty of room and features for families 2019 Jeep Cherokee can handle the rough stuff 12 Photos 0 52 Photos Honda OdysseyThe feature-rich Honda Odyssey minivan also retains its number-two slot from last year’s list. While the 2019 model doesn’t see any changes from last, it’s still a darn good choice for families on the go with reconfigurable seats, Wi-Fi and an excellent rear-seat entertainment system. The Cabin Watch video system lets parents keep an eye on their little darlings without turning around in their seats, while Cabin Talk amplifies their voice so no yelling is required.The Odyssey is powered by a 3.5-liter V6 rated for 280 horsepower and 262 pound-feet of torque. Most trims get a nine-speed automatic but the top Touring and Elite trims now use a 10-speed automatic with stop-start technology. The Honda Odyssey is made in Lincoln, Alabama. 2019 Chevy Colorado ZR2 Bison: An off-road animal Honda PilotDropping down to seventh place for 2019 is the Honda Pilot. Like its two-row Passport sibling, the three-row Pilot offers parent-focused technology like Cabin Talk as well as myriad standard driver-assistance features through the Honda Sensing tech suite. Honda’s largest crossover offers up nearly 84 cubic feet of cargo space. Honda’s 3.5-liter V6 engine shows up again, making a serviceable 280 horsepower and 262 pound-feet of torque. Touring and Elite trims get a nine-speed automatic transmission while lower trims have to make do with a six-speed auto. The Honda Pilot is made in Lincoln, Alabama. 18 Photos Shanghai Motor Show 2019 Tags 10 Photos 71 Photos 2017 Karma Revero looks like a Fisker, but much improved underneath 49 Photos Share your voice Jeep CherokeeKeeping its top-of-the-list placement, the Jeep Cherokee is 2019’s most American-made car. Refreshed for 2019, the compact crossover now features more tech, better cargo space and a slightly tweaked look. It’s available in no fewer the nine trims, including the off-road specific Trailhawk and a fancy-pants Trailhawk Elite.For 2019, the Cherokee gets a new 2.0-liter, turbocharged, four-cylinder engine with 270 horsepower and 295 pound-feet of torque, though naturally aspirated I4 and V6 choices are also available. Regardless of engine, a nine-speed automatic transmission gets the power to the pavement — or dirt as the case may be. The Cherokee is made in Belvidere, Illinois. Post a comment 2019 Honda Pilot Elite: A smoother, tech-rich crossover SUV 2019 Honda Ridgeline: The commuter’s pickup truck Chevrolet ColoradoMaking its debut in the top 10 is the Chevrolet Colorado. Shown here in the tough ZR2 Bison off-road spec, the Chevy Colorado is an excellent truck and one of the two midsize pickups you can get with a diesel engine. Adding to the ZR2’s two-inch lift and front and rear locking differentials, the Bison gets beefier skid plates (trust me, that’s a good thing), steel bumpers and integrated recovery points. Heck, you can even get a snorkel.Base models get a 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine with a six-speed manual transmission, but a more popular choice is the 3.6-liter V6 gas engine with 308 horsepower and 275 pound-feet of torque, mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission. Meanwhile, the 2.8-liter diesel pumps out 186 horsepower and a delicious 369 pound-feet of twist and is mated to a six-speed automatic. The Chevy Colorado is built in Wentzville, Missouri. 2019 GMC Sierra Denali review: So close to greatness 2019 Honda Passport: A well-rounded midsize offering More From Roadshow 68 Photos 2019 Chevrolet Corvette Grand Sport loves to hustle 69 Photos Share your voice 2019 Acura MDX adds new features and an A-Spec model Acura RDXThe third-generation Acura RDX squeaks into the top ten list with larger proportions, plenty of interior space and better handling than its predecessor. Forward collision warning with collision mitigation braking, adaptive cruise control that works even in low-speed traffic, lane-keeping steering assist and road departure mitigation are all standard across the board. Like its MDX counterpart, the RDX is available with the A-Spec styling package.The RDX sports a 2.0-liter, turbocharged, four-cylinder engine. Output is stated at 273 horsepower and 280 pound-feet of torque, and it’s mated to a 10-speed automatic transmission. The new RDX is built in East Liberty, Ohio. 2019 GMC Canyon: A fancier Colorado Our first look at the “all-new” Revero. Karma Automotive Karma Automotive might have been quiet for some time, but at the upcoming Shanghai Motor Show, the California-based automaker will have plenty to talk about. Karma on Thursday revealed a teaser photo showing the 2020 Revero, the second generation of the car that was derived from the Fisker Karma. The car debuts at Auto Shanghai in early April.The 2020 Karma Revero will apparently be “faster, smarter” than the outgoing Revero, and the company also promises it will be “even more stunning in design.” It’s not clear from the shadowy teaser photo exactly how the car’s design will change, but we’re eager to see the apparently “all-new” model. Interested parties will be able to get behind the wheel soon, too, as Karma says the 2020 Revero will be offered to buy or lease in the second half of this year.Powertrain and other mechanical specs for the new car remain a mystery. The existing, first-generation Karma Revero is a plug-in hybrid that Karma says has 50 miles of all-electric range, 403 horsepower and 981 pound-feet of torque.The introduction of the new Revero is the final pillar in what Karma is calling its “Shanghai Big Three.” The company will also use the Chinese show to reveal an all-electric concept car called the Vision, as well as a concept designed with famed design house Pininfarina.Today’s teaser comes with the news that Karma has also invested $7.5 million to upgrade its powertrain research and development facilities at its headquarters in Irvine, California. New tech, including test cells and dynamometers for both gas engines and electric motors, will allow Karma to further its development of “electric motors, generators and range-extended powertrains” in-house, instead of contracting that work to outside companies. It’s a signal that Karma is serious about developing more new models going forward. 26 Photos 3 Chevrolet CorvetteMoving up from the 10th-place slot last year is the 2019 Chevrolet Corvette. While we’ve all been ogling the new mid-engine Corvette, it’s easy to forget what a performance bargain the current-generation ‘Vette is. From the base trim to the Grand Sport to the bonkers ZR1, the Corvette is an American icon.My preference is for the Grand Sport, which strikes a perfect balance between everyday drivability and canyon-carving performance. The 6.2-liter V8 puts out 460 horsepower and 465 pound-feet of torque. You can get it with a seven-speed manual or eight-speed automatic transmission, but the kicker is the borrowed chassis and aero parts from the beefier Z06. Like I said, perfect balance. The Corvette is made in Bowling Green, Kentucky. Acura MDXMoving up one slot to sixth place on the American Made Index is the non-hybrid variant of the Acura MDX. With its SH-AWD system, the MDX is one of the better handling midsize luxury crossovers, and for 2019 the company gives us the A-Spec treatment with a new front fascia and side skirts, 20-inch wheels, wider exhaust tips, unique gauges, a new steering wheel, carbon fiber trim and various Alcantara interior touches.However, both the standard and A-Spec models get a 3.5-liter V6 engine, rated for 290 horsepower and 267 pound-feet of torque going through a nine-speed automatic transmission. The Acura MDX is made in East Liberty, Ohio.  2020 BMW M340i review: A dash of M makes everything better 81 Photos 48 Photos 2019 Honda Ridgeline review: Light duty, heavy punch More From Roadshow Car Industry Comments Hybrids Luxury cars Sedans,Enlarge ImageIt’s all in a day’s work for the Jeep Cherokee, the most American-made car in 2019. Jeep With high trade tensions looming and increasing talk of tariffs, more and more consumers are looking to buy American. Cars.com has released its annual American Made Index, showcasing companies that use the most American-sourced parts and labor in their vehicles. The results may surprise you.Cars.com analyzed more than 100 US-built vehicles for five key data points: manufacturing location, parts sourcing, US employment, engine sourcing and transmission sourcing. You might think something like the Ford F-150 would top the list, but it drops from its No. 5 spot for 2018 and out of the top 10 completely. Even the first-place holder, the Jeep Cherokee, is a pretty global product. It’s a Jeep, sure, but that brand is part of Fiat Chrysler Automobiles, an Italian-owned business.Cars.com surveyed 1,000 people and found that half are concerned about automotive import tariffs, with 41% saying they are unsure if tariffs would make them more likely to buy American. Either way, we’re big fans of all the vehicles on this list. These days, buying American doesn’t necessarily mean sticking with a US-based automaker. Honda PassportThe Honda Passport is a new (well, reborn) entry to both the Honda lineup and the American Made Index. This midsize crossover comes to the fray with great driving dynamics and plenty of tech like the standard Honda Sensing suite of active safety features. An available 8-inch touchscreen gets Apple CarPlay and Android Auto as well as a Wi-Fi hotspot.Under the hood is the stalwart 3.5-liter V6 producing 280 horsepower and 262 pound-feet of torque. However unlike the Ridgeline, the Passport sends that power through a nine-speed automatic transmission. Having said that, just like the Ridgeline, this is the only powertrain available. The Honda Passport is built in Lincoln, Alabama. Honda RidgelineAgain keeping the status quo, the Honda Ridgeline maintains third place on the American Made Index. This crossover-that-looks-like-a-truck provides a better ride than a traditional pickup and gets an awesome lockable trunk right in the floor of the bed. And it doesn’t do the truck stuff too badly, either, as it’s able to carry 1,860 pounds of payload and tow 3,500 pounds.The Ridgeline is powered by a 3.5-liter V6 good for 280 horsepower and 262 pound-feet of torque. That is channeled through a six-speed automatic transmission with available all-wheel drive. It’s built in Lincoln, Alabama. 2020 Hyundai Palisade review: Posh enough to make Genesis jealous 2019 Acura RDX A-Spec: Sharp handling, sharper looks General Motors Chevrolet Honda Jeep Acura 2019 Chevrolet Colorado ZR2 Bison: A tougher off-roader GMC CanyonIf you’re looking for a slightly fancier version of the Colorado that’s more focused on luxe than dirt, check out the GMC Canyon. The top Denali trim gets standard heated and ventilated front seats as well as a heated steering wheel. Maximum payload capability is 1,665 pounds while max towing is a fairly healthy 7,600 pounds.The Canyon is available with the same 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine, 3.6-liter V6 or 2.8-liter diesel as the Chevrolet Colorado. It’s also built in Wentzville, Missouri. Tags 2020 Kia Telluride review: Kia’s new SUV has big style and bigger valuelast_img read more
