La créativité et lenthousiasme sont présents à la conférence et remise des

first_imgLa conférence Célébrons les collectivités a beaucoup de choses à célébrer cette année dans le cadre du 10e anniversaire des prix. Depuis une décennie, les prix célèbrent les initiatives qui font de la province un meilleur endroit où vivre. Les 18 finalistes cette année en sont des exemples parfaits. Choisis parmi 37 entrées, les finalistes aux prix qui seront décernés dans le cadre de la conférence Célébrons les collectivités à Truro, du 23 au 25 septembre, font tous preuve de créativité, d’innovation et d’enthousiasme. Malgré le fait qu’ils sont tous de différentes régions et de différentes communautés de la province, les finalistes ont des histoires qui se ressemblent au sujet du travail d’équipe qui a permis à leurs communautés de connaître du succès. « Je suis encore plus fier d’être un Néo-Écossais lorsque je constate tout ce que les communautés de la province ont accompli, a dit Percy Paris, ministre du Développement économique et rural. Il est difficile de ne pas se sentir inspiré. Chacune de ces communautés a une histoire stimulante de croissance collective à raconter. » Cet engagement à travailler ensemble pour le bien de toute la communauté a été reconnu par le gouvernement du Canada. « Nous sommes très heureux que l’Agence de promotion économique du Canada atlantique ait contribué un montant équivalent au financement offert par le ministère du Développement économique et rural, » a dit M. Paris au sujet de la contribution fédérale. « Le gouvernement du Canada continue d’investir dans les communautés et de travailler étroitement avec elles pour identifier les possibilités de développement économique, a dit Peter MacKay, ministre de la Défense. La conférence Célébrons les collectivités de 2009 mettra en vedette les plus grandes réussites en matière de développement économique dans les régions rurales à l’échelle de la Nouvelle-Écosse. » De nombreux finalistes, qui se sont déjà inscrits à la conférence, se sont engagés envers un succès futur, et ce genre d’effort ne passe pas inaperçu. Les finalistes ont mentionné avoir remarqué que des organismes d’autres provinces suivent de près les meilleures pratiques adoptées par la Nouvelle-Écosse. David Harris de Yarmouth affirme que sa participation à un conseil national lui a fait prendre conscience de la force réelle de la Nouvelle-Écosse. « Lorsque je me suis joint à ce groupe, j’ai d’abord pensé que puisque nous sommes une petite province, nous devions être bien en retard sur les autres, a avoué M. Harris. À ma grande surprise, je me suis rendu compte que nous étions bien en avance. » Cet événement de trois jours inclut des séances qui permettront aux participants d’apprendre et de partager des idées sur le développement communautaire. Les conférenciers tels que le présentateur vedette du réseau CBC Ian Hanomansing, journaliste et entrepreneur ayant déjà habité dans les Maritimes, stimuleront les Néo-Écossais. M. Hanomansing parlera du rôle des petites communautés dans la création d’un environnement favorisant l’excellence. Vous pouvez écouter son invitation personnelle enregistrée au www.celebratingcommunities.ca . Paul Shakotko de Centraide, région d’Halifax, présentera un film communautaire au sujet de la région de Dartmouth North et parlera de l’initiative « Quartiers en essor ».

King Mohammed VI Congratulates Japans Emperor on Anniversary of Ascension

Rabat – King Mohammed VI sent congratulations to Japanese Emperor Akihito and his wife Empress Michiko on the 28-year anniversary of Akihito’s ascension to the throne, according to the state-run news agency the Maghreb Arab Press (MAP). The King’s cable, sent Monday, praised the “friendship and mutual appreciation” between the two countries. Since Japan’s formal recognition of Morocco in 1956, the two countries have had a positive relationship. Japan and Morocco opened embassies in each other’s countries within the next ten years. Since then, Japan has often looked to Morocco as an important African partner both for trade and solving geopolitical issues in North Africa. Since the 1990s, the Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA) has also invested in training for road maintenance, agricultural machinery improvement, micro fisheries development, port management, and maternal health care in Morocco.In late June both countries pledged to fight environmental problems in the Maghreb region by forming the “Morocco-Japan-Africa tripartite cooperation.”In addition, Japan has also invested over MAD 28 billion in loans for Moroccan economic growth and business development since the end of 2015. Japan was also a co-organizer alongside the UN, World Bank, and African Union Commission of the Tokyo International Conference  on African Development in Tokyo in October. read more

BC Green party exerts pressure on riding sharing promises legislation

VANCOUVER — The Green party in British Columbia is planning to keep up the pressure to bring ride sharing to the province by reintroducing legislation to enable the services.The former Liberal government had backed ride-hailing services such as Uber to operate in the province by the end of this year, while introducing initiatives to help the taxi industry remain competitive.Green Leader Andrew Weaver says all three parties support the services, but the province’s minority NDP government has not put a timeline on bringing ride sharing to the province.Before they were defeated, the Liberals promised $1 million to help the taxi industry create an app that would allow the public to order and pay for cabs the same way they would with a ride-hailing service.They would also have given taxis exclusive rights to street hailing and wanted to work with municipal governments to reduce red tape and address shortages of taxis and vehicles for hire.The Vancouver Taxi Association opposed the plan.But Weaver said Monday there is an economic imperative to allowing ride-sharing companies to operate in the province.“The government cannot stick its head in the sand when it comes to new technology,” he said in a news release.“All parties want to see B.C. be a leader in the emerging economy. To do so, government must take a proactive, responsive approach that considers the wide-ranging impacts of technological innovation. Vancouver is the largest city in North America without ride sharing. It is time we finally made this service accessible to British Columbians.”Geoff Meggs, Premier John Horgan’s chief of staff, expressed his disappointment with the Liberal party’s plan in March when he was a member of Vancouver’s city council.At the time, Horgan promised a deeper consultation with the taxi industry to ensure local businesses are protected.The Greens have agreed to support the NDP in the legislature, and Weaver invited the other parties to work with him before he brings in legislation.“In this new minority government, we have an opportunity to work together to advance good public policy,” he said.Transportation Minister Claire Trevena said there’s an urgent need to overhaul B.C.’s regulations to open the way for ride sharing that meets consumers’ needs while creating a level playing field for all service providers.“I’m looking forward to working with Green party Leader Andrew Weaver and a full range of stakeholders as we develop a made-in-B.C. plan that protects jobs that currently exist while ensuring British Columbians have access to the modern ride-sharing services they expect,” Trevena said in a statement. read more

Palace fears for Duke and Duchess of Sussexs safety after BBC publicises

The image, a poster in stark red and black, shows the Duke of Sussex with a gun pointed to his head, a swastika, and the words:… Prince Harry and Prince William, who has recently campaigned for online safety, are both aware of the picture and understood to be very concerned about its content, with aides deeply worried about the security implications. The BBC has been accused of compromising the safety of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex after it shared neo-Nazi propaganda calling for the death of “race traitors” on its website. An image, featuring the Duke and published uncensored in an online news story, has now been taken down from the BBC website after a direct complaint from the Royal Household.

FISH PRICES STILL HIGH DUE TO WEATHER CONDITIONS Say fisherfolks

first_imgBy Saikou Suwareh JabaiThe high price of fish is still lingering in the markets, prompting women customers to raise concerns about the issue.It could be recalled that three weeks ago, this reporter visited the Tanji Fish Landing Site to enquire about the prices of the different types of fish which has increased recently. Returning to the site yesterday, it was discovered that the prices have not reduced since then. There was only one fishing boat that was seen with its catch as 25 others were anchored by the beach thus indicating scarcity and the concomitant price hike.Morr Jeng, a Senegalese boat captain, said the scarcity of fish is due to the unfavourable weather condition out at sea. “It is very cold nowadays and there are heavy winds as well as waves too. During these times, the fish usually go deep down under the sea which makes it hard for us to catch them,” said the fisherfolk.He explained that sometimes when they go out to sea they would only get limited catch and which represents a great loss to them as they incur high expenses on fuel in every trip. This, he added, is the reason why some boats have not gone out to sea.He, however, expressed optimism that the situation will not last long but added that their work is still affected by the high cost of fuel.Manyima Sanneh, a fish monger, who buys wholesale and sells retail at the market, also confirmed the low catch which results in the price hike of fish.She said a basin of fish is between D500 and D450. She was selling a set of ‘White fish’ at D150.With these wholesale prices, she said, the retail price could be D5 for three pieces of ‘Yaboye’ or sardinella and D25 for five pieces of ‘Yaboye maroc’, another variety.These are the prices that prevail in the Serekunda and Latrikunda markets.As for the ‘White fish’, she said it fluctuates as most of the available stock is frozen and not fresh catch.last_img read more

Atkins sworn in as Clark County sheriff

first_imgChuck Atkins was sworn in as Clark County sheriff in a standing-room-only ceremony Monday afternoon at the Public Service Center. Atkins’ family alone took up three rows of chairs, while county officials and law enforcement crowded into the back of the sixth floor hearing room.“I think this is largest swearing-in in the history of Clark County,” said District Court Judge Darvin Zimmerman. Atkins twiddled his thumbs while sitting in the front, waiting to be called forward and sworn in. It was only 10 seconds of nervousness, he said, adding that the large turnout was humbling and gratifying. “It highlights the importance of what we’re getting ready to do,” he said. He’s the first new sheriff in 24 years, succeeding retiring Sheriff Garry Lucas, whose last day will be Dec. 31.Atkins, 60, is a former Clark County sheriff’s administrator who came out of retirement to seek the elected office.Zimmerman asked Atkins to swear under oath that he will “truly, faithfully, diligently and impartially” perform the duties of the county sheriff, and uphold the law. That done, it was time to pin the seven-pointed sheriff’s star to the lapel of Atkins’ crisp gray suit.“Now how many people does it really take to put on a badge?” Atkins said jokingly as his mother, Vivian Atkins, and wife, Lorna Atkins, worked to do the honors.last_img read more

Sensex Nifty feel the heat ahead of Donald TrumpHillary Clinton debate

first_imgIndian stock markets dropped by more than 1 percent on Monday tracking global cues that saw investors getting jittery over equities becoming volatile if Donald Trump wins the US presidential elections. The sell-off was triggered over a perception that Trump could pip rival Hillary Clinton in the presidential debate between the two candidates. The debate assumes significance as the outcome could swing the decision of many fence-sitters during polls.The BSE Sensex fell 374 points, or 1.30 percent, to close at 28,294 while the NSE Nifty ended 108 points lower at 8,723. Top Sensex losers were ONGC, ICICI Bank, Tata Motors, NTPC and GAIL (India). Sectoral indices on the BSE that shed more than 1 percent included Bankex (1.56 percent) and Auto (1.72 percent), “A good performance from Mr. Trump could see market volatility increase, particularly if investors think there is a possibility that he could actually win,” wrote Michael Hewson, chief market analyst at CMC Markets in London, Reuters reported.The X-factor for driving markets is no longer the speculation over US Federal Reserve’s decision on interest rate hike, rather it is the outcome of the US presidential elections.”But as the U.S. elections are moving into a closer market horizon, the tendency of U.S. political events to influence global markets will probably rise,” Investec economist Philip Shaw told the agency.The speculation pulled the pan-European STOXX 600 index down 1.4 percent, translating into a fall of about 7 percent since the beginning of the current calendar year.Global stock markets are likely to witness a shift away from equities in the run-up to the American presidential elections. “I think there could be some shift away from equities to the safer assets ahead of the US elections across the markets globally,” NDTVProfit quoted Ambareesh Baliga, a Mumbai-based independent market analyst, as saying.Select stocks hit a new 52-week-high on a day of losses and these included public sector oil marketing companies Bharat Petroleum Corporation Ltd. (BPCL), Indian Oil Corporation Ltd., Biocon, Reliance Industries Ltd. (RIL) and Jubiliant Life Sciences.last_img read more

2 oil tankers attacked in Gulf of Oman

first_imgFront Altair on fire.TwitterTwo oil tankers were attacked in the Gulf of Oman, according to a UK maritime security report. A similar incident in the region was reported last month when four oil tankers were attacked.The incident took place near the coast of the United Arab Emirates (UAE) near the strategic Strait of Hormuz.One of the two ships, the tanker ‘Front Altair’ managed by a Bermuda-owned shipping company Frontline, suffered a fire on Thursday morning while sailing through the southern end of the Strait of Hormuz. While the cause of the fire is yet to be ascertained, a spokesperson of the company told CNN that all the 23 crew members were evacuated and safe.The Iran state media, on the other hand, reported that the Front Altair had sunk, reported The Guardian.The vessel was identified as an oil tanker that was transporting Naptha (a type of crude oil) and was on its way to Taiwan. The other ship, Kokuka Courageous was reportedly attacked “thrice” with “some sort of shell” according to the spokesperson of the Japanese ship, reported CNN. All 21 crew members on board were evacuated in which one was reported to be injured. The ship was reportedly a goods carrier and was carrying methanol and was on route to Singapore, reported CNN. However, according to Japan’s Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry, both tankers were carrying “Japan-related cargo.”Managed by the Singapore based company BSM, a company spokesperson said that the ship remains in the area and is not in danger of sinking.Michio Yuube, the co-manager of company Kokuka Sangyo said that the vessel was “first shot above sea level and then caught fire briefly before the blaze was extinguished”.Iran’s Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif Tweeted that “suspicious doesn’t begin to describe” the incident as it happened on the day Japan’s Prime Minister Shinzo Abe was on a state visit to Iran to meet Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali KhameneiReported attacks on Japan-related tankers occurred while PM @AbeShinzo was meeting with Ayatollah @khamenei_ir for extensive and friendly talks. Suspicious doesn’t begin to describe what likely transpired this morning. Iran’s proposed Regional Dialogue Forum is imperative.— Javad Zarif (@JZarif) June 13, 2019On June 6, according to the international investigation, the United Arab Emirates (UAE), Saudi Arabia and Norway told the United Nations Security Council in an informal meeting that there are “strong indications that the four attacks were part of a sophisticated and coordinated operation carried out with significant operational capacity.’Out of the four vessels attacked on May 12, two belonged to Saudi Arabia, while the remaining were owned by the UAE and Norway. The investigation did not mention the name of any country responsible behind the attack.last_img read more

Death toll in Afghan suicide attack reaches 68

first_imgMap locating Jalalabad where there was a double bombing outside a school on Tuesday with a another attack near the Pakistan border in Nangarhar province. Photo: AFPThe death toll from a suicide attack on Afghan protesters has soared to 68, officials said Wednesday, as violence flares across the country ahead of elections and a key Islamic holy day.The bombing on Tuesday in the eastern province of Nangarhar was the latest in a wave of deadly insurgent attacks which has claimed the lives of hundreds of civilians and security forces across Afghanistan.The blast wounded another 165 people, provincial governor spokesman Ataullah Khogyani said.There has been no claim of responsibility for the massacre, but the Islamic State group, which has carried out most of the recent suicide bombings in Afghanistan, is active in the province.The Nangarhar health department confirmed the toll.Scores of demonstrators had blocked the highway between the provincial capital of Jalalabad and a major Pakistan border crossing in protest over the appointment of a local police chief when the suicide bomber blew himself up.The dead and wounded were rushed to several hospitals in the back of pickup trucks and ambulances, overwhelming doctors and nurses as they struggled to cope with the huge number of casualties.It was the deadliest attack since an ambulance packed with explosives detonated in a crowded street in the heart of Kabul in January, killing more than 100 people, mostly civilians. That bombing was claimed by the Taliban.Violence across the country has intensified in recent weeks as the Taliban make gains on the battlefield and IS launches deadly urban attacks.The fighting has tempered optimism that had been tentatively growing as Afghan and international players ratchet up efforts to convince the Taliban to negotiate an end to the 17-year conflict.An unprecedented ceasefire in June followed by talks between US officials and Taliban representatives in Qatar in July raised hopes that peace negotiations could bring an end to the fighting.There has been speculation the two sides will meet again this month.The Taliban have long insisted on direct talks with Washington and refused to negotiate with the Afghan government, which they see as illegitimate.The intensified fighting has also fuelled speculation over whether Afghanistan’s long-delayed parliamentary elections will go ahead on October 20.The country’s already stretched security forces will be tasked with protecting thousands of polling stations around the country at a time when they are already struggling to beat back insurgents.Delivering ballot papers and monitoring the vote, which is seen as a test run for next year’s presidential election, will be challenging, officials have warned.There are already concerns about widespread fraud.In recent days, Taliban fighters killed nearly 60 members of the security forces in a spate of attacks in the country’s north, and threatened a provincial capital for the second time in as many months.last_img read more

Former US vice president decries Democratic anger

first_imgDemocratic 2020 US presidential candidate and former vice president Joe Biden speaks during a campaign stop in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, US on 18 May. Photo: ReutersSeeking to build on early momentum in his 2020 presidential bid, former US vice president Joe Biden on Saturday condemned “anger” within his own Democratic Party and pledged to work to unify the country in the wake of Donald Trump’s presidency.At a rally in downtown Philadelphia, Biden, as he has done throughout the beginning stages of his campaign, made Trump his central target, blasting him as “the divider-in-chief.”But he also chided other Democratic presidential candidates in the field, suggesting that anger toward Trump within his party was not enough to win next year’s presidential election.His message, Biden said, was expressly aimed at Democratic, Republican and independent voters alike.”Some of the really smart folks say Democrats don’t want to hear about unity,” he said. “They say Democrats are so angry, and that the angrier your campaign will be, the better chance you have to win the Democratic nomination. Well, I don’t believe it.”About 6,000 people attended the rally, which had, by design, the feel of a general-election event. With his poll numbers currently swamping the rest of the Democratic field, Biden has often acted as if his current opponent is Trump and not the other 23 Democrats vying for the party’s nomination.”If the American people want a president to add to our division, to lead with a clenched fist, closed hand, a hard heart, to demonize the opponents and spew hatred – they don’t need me, they’ve got President Donald Trump,” Biden told the crowd, which was bookended by large video monitors.Democratic nominating contests begin next February, giving the dynamics of the race plenty of time to shift. But Biden, 76, has opened up a more than 20-point lead over his nearest rival, US senator Bernie Sanders, in several public opinion polls.Biden, a US senator for 30 years and a two-term vice president under Barack Obama, has argued he is best positioned to take on Trump next year.Attendees at the event said they agreed.”He’s going to be the one who takes Trump out of office,” said Daril Murard, 27, of Langhorne, Pennsylvania. “That’s why I’m here.”Tim Reihm, 48, drove to the event from his hometown of York, Pennsylvania.”I think there’s been a tendency in the party to drift a little too far left and I think that’s going to disenfranchise a large section of the country,” Reihm said. “Joe represents a sort of a more middle ground where we can bring people together instead of becoming more and more fractious.”Biden also answered critics who have mocked his pledge to work with Republicans as unrealistic should he win the White House.”I’m going to say something outrageous,” he said. “I know how to make government work.”Biden’s remarks drew a swift response from the Progressive Change Campaign Committee, a liberal advocacy group that backs another candidate, US senator Elizabeth Warren.A fundraising memo sent to members after the rally accused Biden of trying to splinter the party.”Joe Biden is dividing Americans when, after the historic 2018 election, he tells voters they are wrong to be angry – and wrong if they don’t want ‘unity’ with corrupt Republican politicians,” the memo said.”We don’t need a Democratic nominee who rejects the fact that people are righteously angry in the Trump era,” it said.Biden has established his campaign headquarters in Philadelphia, illustrating the importance of Pennsylvania to Democratic hopes next year. Trump narrowly won the state over Hillary Clinton in 2016.Trump will hold an event of his own on Monday in northeast Pennsylvania.Prior to Biden’s speech, the Republican National Committee in a release pointed to statistics showing how Pennsylvania’s economy has improved during Trump’s presidency.Biden will not have the luxury of shrugging off the rest of the Democratic field much longer.In recent weeks, he has been criticized by Senator Kamala Harris for his past support for the 1994 crime bill that critics say led to mass incarceration of African-Americans, by Sanders for his support of the North American Free Trade Agreement, and by Warren for his ties to the credit-card industry.With Biden the clear front-runner, those attacks are likely to intensify. But Biden on Saturday said he would keep his focus on Trump and not his rivals for the nomination.”You will not hear me speak ill of another Democrat,” Biden said.Following the Philadelphia event, Biden is expected to spend the next several weeks focusing on policy announcements and raising money.last_img read more

Richard Wright HighSchoolers Get Early Break in Media Industry

first_imgRichard Wright Public Charter School’s 2014 Black Tie Gala.Being a young, aspiring journalist in the nation’s capital can be truly rewarding. Perhaps, no other group of teenagers in the city knows this as much as students at the Richard Wright Public Charter School for Journalism and Media Arts.After an impromptu meeting on Capitol Hill with civil rights leader U.S. Rep. John Lewis (D-Ga.), a small group of Wright students created the short film, Bridging the Legacy  – Congressman John Lewis: A Hero for Every Generation, which will be viewed June 13 at the Richard Wright Black Tie Gala Film Festival 2015 at the Warner Theatre.Founded in 2011, Wright is the only non-selective high school in the city that affords students unique opportunities to explore media and hone their craft in print and broadcast journalism. Students participate in forums and conferences surrounding issues of civil rights, economic growth, environmental sustainability, technology development and global affairs. Their educational experiences venture from the White House to behind the scenes of local newsrooms. Their work is also published in local newspapers and online platforms.Inside the walls of the southeast school, largely attended by youth who reside in D.C.’s Wards 7 and 8, is where the magic happens.“I really appreciate the family atmosphere we have here. It’s very close knit,” says Stokely Lewis, who worked on the congressman’s documentary. “I can talk to the staff, I’m close with my peers, and it’s something that I have really gotten used to.”Stokely is a member of the ambassador’s club, the school’s premier leadership organization, which cultivates peer-to-peer accountability and mentorship as well as leadership skills as students make decisions that affect the entire student body.Student ambassador Kennard Jones and guest at 2014 gala.“We believe in empowering our students to become solid thinkers and leaders for themselves because clearly we know that they’re not going to be with us for a very long time,” says Dr. Marco Clark, the school’s founder and CEO.In an effort to address reading, writing, and speech deficiencies among urban youth, Clark envisioned the school invoking the spirit of an acclaimed 20th century writer.“Richard Wright represents the majority of the population that we serve – some of our kids have some challenges just as Richard Wright,” says Clark. “Richard Wright was able to express himself in a written format as well as an orator standpoint and I think that really coupled what we needed to have in our school. Plus, we wanted our kids to understand that you can stand for things that are very important especially if they’re going to make a positive change.”When Shaka Williams entered Wright as a freshman, he was unsure of all that mass media entails. Eventually, he took to camera production, then became a founding anchor of the school’s news desk. As a former athlete who took a break to focus on his studies during his senior year, Williams enjoys keeping up with sports through reporting.“We may not have the best teams in the area, but I do promote them and I give them the absolute respect for what they do on the field and what they do in the classroom,” he says.As a member of the school’s first graduating class of 60 students, Williams will attend the University of the District of Columbia for mass communications and English, with a stronger sense of what it takes to become a nationally recognized sports anchor.“A lot of kids come [to the school] with an [interest] in being a journalist, interviewer, or filmmaker and being here opens up their minds of what they want to do,” he says. “And they’re set afterwards.”last_img read more

ArtTech Startup Makes the Digital Picture Frame Super Classy

first_imgApril 7, 2015 2 min read Attend this free webinar and learn how you can maximize efficiency while getting the most critical things done right. Free Webinar | Sept 5: Tips and Tools for Making Progress Toward Important Goalscenter_img Register Now » The idea of the digital picture frame is logical, but in execution, it doesn’t always work. In many cases, the picture quality isn’t great, the frames are cheesy and the whole vibe is a bit suburban-country-living gone wrong.A new art-tech startup, Meural, is making digital picture frames super classy and innovative. The image appears on a matte LCD display and the frame is made by hand of maple wood. The New York City-based startup isn’t interested in a slideshow of family vacation snaps from your latest family trip to Disney, either. The idea is for you to rotate images of fine art and professional photographs in your Meural.The startup is being very careful not to upset the art community traditionalists. “We unreservedly respect the established means of art collection and curation,” says CEO Vladimir Vukicevic, in a statement announcing the launch. “Meural is working closely with museums, galleries and artists to create an innovative new layer in visual culture by increasing the opportunity for exploration and accessibility.”Related: Marc Ecko on Entrepreneurship as an Art Form (Video)The discovery component of the Meural “digital canvas” makes it appealing to the indecisive set. And what if your tastes change? Or your mood shifts? Or you grow tired of a particular image? The Meural frame is connected to an app wirelessly, so you can change the image from across the room. But, also, if you are standing in front of the image, the frame is gesture sensitive, so you can wave your hand in front of the “digital canvas” and change the image displayed.Related: Artists Are Job-Creating Entrepreneurs, Too.The Meural frame is not available for purchase just yet. It’s in pre-order, starting at $395, and is expected to ship this fall.The technology that Meural is using to collect pre-orders is a new “standalone” crowdfunding software developed by the alternative finance platform RocketHub. The pre-order software, called LaunchPad, allows businesses to customize the RocketHub software to their particular needs. Vukicevic, the founder of Meural, was previously the CTO of RocketHub.Related: Crowdfunding Nearly Tripled Last Year, Becoming a $16 Billion Industrylast_img read more
