Tapping into innate potential

The programme will cover Business Management in Development Sector; Building SMART educational enterprises; Building Rural Impact Enterprises; and Business Management in Fashion and Design.

“Women have a traditional native intelligence and innate leadership skills, which is what we’re trying to bring out through this liberal arts-inspired multidimensional business education.

It aims to give women access to knowledge, resources, social mobility and Intersectoral Capacity Building Platforms, thus empowering them to build ecosystems that benefit the rural economy and thereby the people.

The Impact Business School aims to steer more women towards impactful entrepreneurship by empowering them with the right knowledge and resources In her speech at a women’s forum in 2018, Annette Dixon, former Vice-President-South Asia Region at World Bank, highlighted the impact women could have in a country, specifically India’s economy, with greater participation.

There will be an intersection of business, academia and public policy and its application for social development with an unique understanding of the social, economic, cultural and spiritual context of India.

E-Commerce Sales Will Explode This Holiday Season, Putting Retailers’ Online Strategies To The Test

“Retailers are not meeting customers’ expectations for personalized omnichannel experiences,” he shares, saying that over 70% of consumers surveyed last year by Harris Poll for his company reported a personalization gap.

Redpoint’s Nash says retailers have a fix for this problem if they would use consumer data that is readily available to personalize their online marketing and customer engagement processes.

Online sales for retailers in popular gifting categories will get a boost this season, with health and beauty up 23%, consumer electronics rising 20%, fashion up 19% and home furnishings growing 16% by year’s end.

“Retailers have been building more capability for that last mile, but this year is going to be a ... [+] stress test for the retail supply chain,” says Deloitte's Rod Sides.

Nearly half of consumers (49%) say they are more likely to purchase from retailers that send them personalized content and offers this holiday season.

The World Is Unthinkably Bleak. The Great British Baking Show Soldiers On.

The season opener is a rather wholesome parody of Boris Johnson’s bumbling coronavirus response (“We are saying, with regards to baking, if you must bake in a tent, bake in a tent, but please don’t bake in a tent,” blusters Lucas-as-Johnson), and there is a brief explanation of the new competition protocol — the competitors all quarantined upon arrival and stayed on site for the duration — but after a close-up of gingerbread nurses wearing masks atop an NHS-themed cake, it’s time for everyone to buck up and carry on.

All the usual contenders are here, the flighty and the serious and unsettlingly baby-faced, bakers of all shapes and colors and middle-class circumstances, gathered to kick off the season with a rousing Cake Week.

The challenge is: six miniature pineapple upside-down cakes, which Paul Hollywood warns will be a true test of “your timings and your consistency.”

And then there are the crises nobody sees coming: Sura, a kind-eyed hospital pharmacist with a leash-trained cat, happens to wave away a fly at the precise moment Dave approaches with his tray, and in an instant, his pineapple upside-down cakes are indeed a little too upside-down.

And then, in true British Baking fashion, Sura cries and Dave is gracious and camp counselors Noel and Matt step in to offer comfort while Paul and Prue agree to judge Dave’s cakes based on the two that remain unharmed.

The story behind the Duchess of Cambridge’s gold necklace

When it comes to royal style, if you dig a little deeper, there’s often a story behind the fashion choices of Kate, Meghan and co.

During a recent socially distanced visit to Battersea Park, the Duchess of Cambridge accessorised her casual look with a new necklace.

But, as spotted by eagle-eyed royal fans, the dainty gold chain actually holds three circular pendants, each stamped with the initials of each of her three children, G, C and L.

The sweet necklace was gifted to the royal by jewellery brand All The Falling Stars, who wrote in an Instagram post: “A special personalised version of this necklace was gifted to the Duchess of Cambridge on one of her official visits in Galway earlier this year, with her children’s initials stamped on each disc.”

As a result of the pandemic, the royal family had to completely cancel their official engagement schedule, but William and Kate in particular have been visiting key workers and those helping others during this difficult time, when it's been safe to do so.

How To Package and Transfer Docker Images From One Server to Another

If you’ve built a Docker image on your development machine, and want to deploy it on a server, you could use a Docker registry, but Docker also has tools for saving images to files, and loading them on a different server.

You Don’t Need A Container Registry Usually, to transfer a build of a container (called an image) to a remote server, you use a Docker container registry.

However, for those looking to do it the old fashioned way, the Docker CLI contains some tools for saving images to files, and loading them on a remote server.

To save an image, you can use docker save, specifying an output file, and then specify an image name and tag: docker save -o .

If you’d like to save it as a tar.gz, you can omit the -o flag and pipe the output to gzip: docker save imagename:tag | gzip savedimage.tar.gz You can then take this file and scp or FTP copy to the target server.

Why selling second-hand designer items is very on-trend

Nikki Veale’s Sydney-based business has grown exponentially in the past year, and now comprises a website as well as a store in Double Bay.

She “borrowed” my Givenchy and Saint Laurent bags on occasion, but otherwise it all stayed there, unused, for two years, at which point I moved it back, a large proportion of it ending up in the top of my daughter’s wardrobe – where it also stayed, unused.

An astute reseller, Veale only trades in top brands: Chanel, Gucci, Hermès, Louis Vuitton, Balenciaga, Fendi, Zimmermann, Christian Dior, Camilla and Marc and the like.

TikTok to host its own month-long digital fashion event

“[TikTok influencers] will become just as, if not more, important than Instagram influencers for fashion marketing,” said Schiffer.

“The TikTok experience is completely different from other social platforms and that uniqueness is a real draw to fashion labels,” said Jenkins.

Where Instagram has a comment section, TikTok creates a more immersive and communal link between fashion label and user thanks, in part, to the hashtag challenges.

Short, earnest, arty films replaced physical fashion shows and, unexpectedly, the most compelling and fun fashion trends moved on to TikTok, where users created endless fashion content that often went viral.

The social media platform TikTok has announced its own fashion month as a digital innovation aimed at rivaling the physical fashion weeks that take place around the world as well as to try to threaten Instagram’s supremacy over fashion content online.

The main ingredient is argan oil, which is gentle but still potent enough to leave hair incredibly hydrated, so your fine curls will be left nice and moisturized (and not weighed down).

The sulfate- and silicone-free formula's star ingredient is coconut oil, which helps remove impurities without stripping away hair's natural oils.

To get you started, here are some of the best cleansing conditioners that have received high praise from Amazon shoppers with fine hair.

Beyond cleansing, co-washes should also condition your hair, so you'll often find ingredients like argan oil, coconut oil, green tea, and keratin in these formulas.

Along with the six antique fireplaces, original wide-plank floorboards were kept in the main entrance and dining room, while elsewhere is a mix of newer wood floors, as in the kitchen, and limestone tile with wood inlays, as is showcased in the billiards lounge.

The Hilfigers, who previously owned another Round Hill estate they sold in 2009 for $20 million, are in the midst of culling their property portfolio.

Many rooms have been totally redesigned to reflect Hilfiger and Ocleppo’s stylishly eccentric taste.

With six ensuite bedrooms, seven bathrooms and three powder rooms in 13,344 square feet, the regal, ivy-clad manor house has almost as much wood within — ceiling beams, floors, doors, wall paneling, staircases, wainscoting, ceilings, mantelpieces, moldings and more — as there are verdant acres of forest outside.

Mere days after recently re-listing his vibrantly colorful, pop-art-filled waterfront spread in Miami for $24.5 million, American retail fashion tycoon Tommy Hilfiger has also hoisted his European-inspired estate in exclusive Greenwich, Conn. onto the market with a publicity-assuring $47.5 million asking price.
