SANBio empowering female owned bio-businesses

first_imgSANBio empowering female owned bio-businessesThis year, International Women’s Day shared a strong call-to-action to press forward and progress gender parity under the campaign theme #PressforProgress. There is a strong call to #PressforProgress motivating and uniting friends, colleagues and whole communities to think, act and be gender inclusive.This has since seen organisations such as the Southern Africa Network for Biosciences (SANBio) have in place programmes that are gender inclusive. They look for ambitious female leaders in bioscience-based businesses want to grow their business through acceleration programmes, and gain regional exposure and access to international markets.SANBio is a shared biosciences research, development and innovation platform for working collaboratively, to address some of Southern Africa’s key biosciences issues in health, nutrition and health-related intervention areas such as agriculture and environment.With support from the BioFISA II programme, SANBio has implemented a second round of FemBioBiz Acceleration Programme, aimed at supporting women in biosciences. The Programme was created to develop leadership, technological and business skills in female-owned businesses in the SADC region.Although sub-Saharan Africa has not been famous for its status as a leader in female inclusion within the economic sector, African women are surprisingly beating the odds and defying the obstacles in the field of entrepreneurship in the region.Entrepreneurs characteristically have ambition, determination and a flair for original ideas. However, many lack the business expertise required to develop these into commercially viable ventures.“This programme creates a platform for peer learning and will empower women to lead in health and nutrition through science and technology”, says Zvikomborero Tangawamira, BioFISA II programme manager.For more information on deadlines, timelines, conditions of entry, and submission details, please visit the FemBioBiz Season 2 page.last_img read more

How To Calibrate Your Color Grading Monitor

first_imgCheck out this free webinar to learn how to calibrate your color grading monitor.Learning the essentials of how to calibrate your grading monitor is key to being able to assure your clients that your image is true and accurate.In this free webinar from SpectraCal you can get a very thorough introduction to the theory and practice of calibrating your display and how to use the CalMAN 4 and 5 tools to do just that. The audio is a bit rough, but if you can bear through it there’s tons of great info:How To Calibrate Your DisplayImage from VanHurkman.comIn this recent blog post from colorist and trainer Alexis Van Hurkman, you can learn how to use LightSpace CMS and DaVinci Resolve 10 to calibrate your plasma client display. Alexis’ article goes into detail on how to use automated LUT calibration with his particular grading suite set up, but you can use the technique with almost any display.While I’m discussing my particular use case, it’s worth pointing out that these procedures are identical for calibrating any kind of display, be it plasma, LCD, OLED, or projection. In fact, with plasma displays soon to be discontinued by Panasonic (according to the last news I’ve heard), the various debates about whether or not plasma is truly suitable for professional use shall eventually become moot. However, for now, plasmas are still very much in use at facilities around the world, so this information is still relevant.Check out Alexis’ article for a great read on using LightSpace CMS, Klein K-10 colorimeter and using a calibration LUT inside DaVinci Resolve 10.last_img read more

Execution > Ideas Alone

first_img Essential Reading! Get my 2nd book: The Lost Art of Closing “In The Lost Art of Closing, Anthony proves that the final commitment can actually be one of the easiest parts of the sales process—if you’ve set it up properly with other commitments that have to happen long before the close. The key is to lead customers through a series of necessary steps designed to prevent a purchase stall.” Buy Now There is no end to the number of ideas that may benefit you in improving your results. Everything you might do differently is likely already known. The internet is the greatest leveler when it comes to the immediate delivery of insights and ideas that could be useful to you when it comes to learning something that might help you produce better results.The internet is also the greatest distraction in the history of humankind.The Next Idea < The Last IdeaThe next idea, no matter how smart and useful it is, is not likely to be any more beneficial to you than the last idea. The insight, no matter how remarkable, is not more useful than the last insight. No matter how novel or unique the idea is, it will not change your results unless you execute on the idea. Execution is the greater variable when it comes to improving your results.Spending the day searching the internet to find the one thing that you might be missing to improve your results will have the exact opposite effect. All the ideas that draw your attention likely have value, but none of the ideas will do anything to improve your results without you doing the work.Execution > Ideas By ThemselvesDeeper Is Better Than Wider.It is important to understand what ideas and concepts exist in the domain in which you are trying to improve. Understanding what choices might be available to you allows you the flexibility and of freedom to adjust what you’re doing to generate new results. For the ideas to be useful, however, you must actually apply them. Noticing them does nothing, outside of drawing you deeper into the rabbit hole.Deeper is better than wider in this case because deeper is an indication that you are executing an idea well enough and long enough to see the improvement that it offers you. Deeper means staying with an idea until you have done the work necessary to be able to execute it a level of mastery before you move on to something else.Why Seekers StruggleCuriosity killed the cat. It is a good thing to be interested in all kinds of ideas and concepts. It’s a very good idea to be interested in understanding your world. Wide knowledge provides you with greater awareness and makes you a more interesting person generally.The challenge for seekers, however, is that they never stop seeking long enough to go deep on a single idea. Because they never go deep on a single idea, they never gain mastery of that idea, and the lack of execution means they invested their time in looking at something without any application.Seekers are very much like a hamster on a wheel. They aren’t going anywhere, but they continue to run faster and faster, believing that eventually, they’ll get traction.Pick One ThingPick one thing and go deep. Find the idea that you believe brings you the greatest chance of improvement now and push the chips all in on that idea. Go deep, avoiding the next big idea and the next shiny object. Build mastery by executing the one thing you believe to be most worth your time. By doing so, you will get some improvement, and you will likely gain greater insight into what you should work on next.last_img read more

Apple will also build new campuses in Seattle and Culver City, along with San Diego, and increase the size of its offices in cities around the country like New York, Boston and Portland.“Talent, creativity and tomorrow’s breakthrough ideas aren’t limited by region or zip code, and, with this new expansion, we’re redoubling our commitment to cultivating the high-tech sector and workforce nationwide,” Apple CEO Tim Cook said in the announcement.Apple officials were tight-lipped about the details of the San Diego campus, but rumors have swirled of a possible location in University City.

Google opened a 60,000-square-foot office in 2016, while Amazon opened a tech hub in University City in September of this year.Apple plans to add 1,000 jobs in San Diego, as well as Seattle and Culver City, by the end of 2021.“Joining an influx of other large tech firms like Amazon, Google and Teradata, Apple is setting up a significant operation in San Diego to take advantage of the region’s STEM talent,” said Mark Cafferty, president and CEO of the San Diego Regional Economic Development Corp. “We look forward to building a stronger working relationship with Apple to help them grow and succeed in this already thriving tech hub.” Apple ❤️ Austin!
