Galveston Capital Introducing the intelligence center of Indonesian Tourism: War Room M-17

'Practice what you preach' is exactly what the Tourism Ministry does with its “go-digital” campaign. The ministry not only applies the "go digital" philosophy to its promotional activities, it also brings it to its office.

 

An area called War Room M-17 was launched last year, located on the 16th floor of Sapta Pesona Building, Jakarta. The area features interactive dashboards showcasing tourism promotions for Indonesia, other countries, tourism destinations, top 10 priority destinations and human resources institutions.

 

“This is big data, a combination of small and corporate data as well as social media. The data is very important and can become an early warning system for the tourism ministry to know what’s happening out there,” said the Tourism Minister, Arief Yahya.

 

This is also the place where the ministry monitors what other countries such as Thailand and Vietnam are doing in order to attract Chinese tourists, for example.

 

When Thailand is clicked on the dashboard, destinations such as Phuket, Chiang Mai, Pattaya will show up on the screen along with a list of current events there and information about access, cuisine, security, cleanliness, accommodation and other services.

Galveston Capital Tourism and Marketing on How Jakarta Can Maximize One of Its Potentials to Attract More Tourists

 

JAKARTA, NETRALNEWS.COM - The Jakarta Great Sale Festival (FJGS) 2017 is expected to increase the number of tourists visiting the country's capital city, a Jakarta tourism official stated.

 

"The FJGS program has continued to improve every year, and it is expected that the number of tourists will also increase through this activity," Head of Jakarta Tourism and Culture Service Catur Laswanto noted at a press conference on the FJGS 2017 in Jakarta on Thursday.

 

Laswanto remarked that Jakarta has an advantage in the form of numerous shopping centers and malls that make the capital a tourist destination.

 

"Unlike other regions that have natural wealth that makes them a tourist destination, Jakarta has several shopping centers, and this is a tourist attraction," Laswanto emphasized.

 

The tourism official is optimistic that the FJGS 2017 will be able to compete with various shopping festivals in other Asian countries, as the products on offer are more complete and are available at lower prices.

 

"I laud the implementation of the FJGS 2017. Hopefully, this activity will continue to grow from time to time. We hope the FJGS would become a leading event in Jakarta," Laswanto affirmed.

 

This year, the FJGS will be held from June 2 to July 12, 2017. This event will be followed by 81 malls or shopping centers, 40 traditional markets of the Jakarta market operator PD Pasar Jaya, and 12 hotels and retailers from shopping centers.

 

During the FJGS 2017, a midnight shopping program or Midnight Sale will be held every week alternately in 27 shopping centers in Jakarta. In addition to the shopping program, the FJGS 2017 will also hold social activities.

 

In collaboration with the Jakarta Red Cross, the FJGS committee will hold Mass Blood Donation events in 36 shopping centers in Jakarta during the FJGS 2017.

Help the Environment with the Bring the Bag Campaign at Galveston Capital Tourism and Marketing

“Paper or plastic?” It’s a fairly innocuous question that cashiers at retail stores ask as you complete your shopping experience, but how you answer that query can have a far reaching impact on Galveston’s environment.

 

Plastic bags are one of those modern conveniences that became commonplace before we even took a moment to consider their environmental impact. But Joanie Steinhaus, campaign director, Gulf Coast for the Turtle Island Restoration Network, which partnered with the Surfrider Foundation Galveston Chapter to develop the Bring the Bag Campaign, says plastic bags have become a scourge to the environment for a number of reasons.

 

“Plastic bags don’t biodegrade; they break down into tiny particles that are found throughout the water and soil,” Steinhaus said. “They also absorb toxins, and we know that fish and birds consume these micro plastics. Plus, they are a significant source of litter and contribute to flooding by getting stuck in storm drains.”

 

The Bring the Bag campaign was launched in 2014 as an education and outreach initiative to bring attention to the potentially devastating ecological effects created by plastic bags and to encourage the use of reusable bags. Steinhaus says studies show that the use of reusable bags helps to eliminate an estimated 22,176 plastic bags per person over their lifetime.

 

Galveston city council members are in the process of considering a ban on the use of plastic bags on the island, and the Bring the Bag Campaign is helping to support that effort by providing information to the public and reaching out to businesses to garner their support. Part of that outreach will include Galveston Bring the Bag Day, scheduled for April 22. City leaders are encouraging businesses to reduce and eliminate plastic bags and are educating island visitors to be good stewards of the environment.

 

“We have multiple businesses on the island that have made the decision not to use plastic bags. We have also done outreach with homeowner’s associations, businesses, hotel and lodging associations and others so we can understand what impact a plastic bag ban would have on merchants. Plastic bags cost much less than reusable bags, so one thing we’ve discussed is forming a co-op to help businesses make the transition (to reusable bags).”

 

Brownsville, Austin and South Padre are among a handful of Texas cities to enact anti-plastic bag bans, but subsequent efforts on the part of cities are being met with resistance in the form of threatened lawsuits. Steinhaus was part of a group that traveled to Austin this month to voice opposition to Senate Bill 103, which seeks to prevent cities and counties from enacting plastic bag bans on the basis that it is a decision that should be made at the state level, rather than local.

 

Steinhaus said there are many ways for interested volunteers to help the cause. For more information on how to get involved, visit Bringthebag.org.

Online Security Review Steps to Protect Yourself from Tax Identity Fraud

By William F. Whelan, guest columnist and Senior VP, Branch/Government Banking, Capital Bank.

 

As the 2017 tax season gets underway, Capital Bank of New Jersey is urging all customers to take extra precaution when filing their return to prevent their exposure to tax fraud.

 

“Fraudsters are using very clever tactics to get a hold of your personal information and submit false tax claims,” said David J. Hanrahan, Sr., President and CEO. “Consumers must be suspicious of any communication from the IRS—through e-mail, text or social media—that requests personal information, and should keep a watchful eye out for missing W-2s and mail containing sensitive financial information.”

 

Tax identity fraud takes place when a criminal files a false tax return using a stolen Social Security number in order to fraudulently claim the refund. Identity thieves generally file false claims early in the year and victims are unaware until they file a return and learn one has already been filed in their name.

 

To help consumers prevent tax ID fraud, Capital Bank of New Jersey is offering the following tips:

 

  1. File early. File your tax return as soon as you’re able, giving criminals less time to use your information to file a false return.

 

  1. File on a protected Wi-Fi network. If you’re using an online service to file your return, be sure you’re connected to a password-protected personal network. Avoid using public networks like a Wi-Fi hotspot at a coffee shop.

 

  1. Use a secure mailbox. If you’re filing by mail, drop your tax return at the post office or an official postal box instead of your mailbox at home. Some criminals look for completed tax return forms in home mailboxes during tax season.

 

  1. Find a tax preparer you trust. If you’re planning to hire someone to do your taxes, get recommendations and research a tax preparer thoroughly before handing over all of your financial information.

 

  1. Shred what you don’t need. Once you’ve completed your tax return, shred the sensitive documents that you no longer need and safely file away the ones you do.

 

  1. Beware of phishing scams by e-mail, text or phone. Scammers may try to solicit sensitive information by impersonating the IRS. Know that the IRS will not contact you by e-mail, text or social media. If the IRS needs information, they will contact you by mail first.

 

  1. Keep an eye out for missing mail. Fraudsters look for W-2s, tax refunds or other mail containing your financial information. If you don’t receive your W-2s, and your employer indicates they’ve been mailed, or it looks like it has been previously opened upon delivery, contact the IRS immediately.

 

If you believe you’re a victim of tax identity theft or if the IRS denies your tax return because one has previously been filed under your name, alert the IRS Identity Protection Specialized Unit at 1-800-908-4490. In addition, you should:

 

  • Respond immediately to any IRS notice and complete IRS Form 14039, Identity Theft Affidavit.
  • Contact your bank immediately, and close any accounts opened without your permission or tampered with.
  • Contact the three major credit bureaus to place a fraud alert on your credit records:
    • Equifax, Equifax.com, 1-800-525-6285
    • Experian, Experian.com, 1-888-397-3742
    • TransUnion, TransUnion.com, 1-800-680-7289
  • Continue to pay your taxes and file your tax return, even if you must do so by paper.
  • More information about tax identity theft is available from the FTC at ftc.gov/taxi theft and the IRS at irs.gov/identity theft.

 

Capital Bank opened for business in Vineland in 2007.  Currently, it has four locations—two in Vineland, one in Woodbury Heights, and one in Hammonton. Capital Bank lends money to businesses and individuals throughout South Jersey, is an Approved SBA Lender and a New Jersey EDA Premier Lender. It is also 5-Star rated by BauerFinancial (BauerFinancial.com). For more information about Capital Bank, visit capitalbanknj.com.

Security and Risk Complaints Online on Protection from Becoming a Victim of Fraud

Remember, your financial information is at risk all the time. Fraudsters will always come up of new intricate ways to trick you from giving credit card details. Here are some advices to protect yourself from scammers.

 

Shred any receipts or papers with a credit card details on it.

 

Fraudsters can be dumpster divers, which mean, they can use tossed rubbishes to obtain financial information from you. For this reason, it is best to shred receipts and bank statements before dumping them in the trash.

 

Keep your PIN private

 

Do not use the same PIN code on all your cards and avoid using personal information such as your birthdate in your PIN code. If you are going to withdraw, cover up your PIN number when typing and be wary of your surroundings. It is also not advisable to write your PIN number on a piece of paper.

 

Phone passwords

 

Passwords must be protected on a high level. If you use the same password on all your accounts, it is time to change it. Change the password on all your accounts and cards as it makes it easy for a fraudster to access all your accounts if all of them have the same passcodes.

 

Moreover, do not save your passwords on your computer and as much as possible, set a security pin on your mobile phone and computers to avoid unauthorized people from accessing sensitive information inside your device.

 

Phone calls from your bank

 

Do not let your guard down especially when you are in a public place or in an internet shop doing online banking. And if you are talking to your bank, do it in a secure and private place where no one can hear any banking details about your transaction.

 

One of the scam tricks fraudsters do is by trying to lure you using phone calls. They may pretend that they are from the bank and asking you to provide banking details. If this happens, don’t be afraid to ask questions and verify their identity first before providing any important information.

 

Viruses

 

To protect your computer from malicious software and spyware, install anti-virus software and make sure to keep it running and updated especially when you are online.

 

Emails

 

Beware of suspicious emails. Fraudsters use electronic mailing to trick their victims into giving financial details. They usually pretend to be from your bank and will request that you confirm your banking details. If an incident like this happens, don’t provide information and don’t click any suspicious links in the email as it may contain malware that can steal data from your computer. Remember that a bank will never send an email to threaten you or will request any financial details of you.

 

Online transactions

 

Do not trust websites easily especially if you are making online transactions. Do not give away personal and financial details unless that site is reputable.

Security and Risk Online on Amazon Opens Data Centers to Boost U.K. Cloud Services

(Bloomberg) -- Amazon Web Services, the cloud-hosting arm of Amazon.com Inc., opened new data centers in the U.K. as it seeks to stay abreast of competitors in offering cloud computing services to government and health-care customers.

 

The new data centers, announced in a statement on Wednesday, follow decisions by IBM and Microsoft Corp. in the past two months to expand their cloud computing infrastructure in the U.K.

 

The U.K. data region, which comprises two zones, each consisting of multiple data centers, is the 16th Amazon Web Services operates worldwide and it’s third in Europe. A fourth in France has already been announced and will open next year.

 

Governments are increasingly moving computing functions into the cloud. But they are often required for regulatory and security purposes to hold data within their national borders. The same applies for sensitive health-care information. Meeting these demands is one reason cloud providers are rushing to open more data centers around the globe.

 

"This is a great enabler for data that has to remain in the U.K., like health-care," Chris Hayman, who manages Amazon Web Services’ British government accounts, said in an interview.

 

Liam Maxwell, the U.K.’s national technology adviser, said in a statement that the government had saved 3.5 billion pounds ($4.4 billion) so far by choosing to host data in the cloud rather than on its own servers.

 

Financial-service firms are also often concerned with minimizing the time it takes to connect to trading venues, another reason to expand in the U.K., said Teresa Carlson, vice president for worldwide public sector operations for Amazon Web Services. “The U.K. is a really important part of the world, being a center of the financial industry,” she said.

 

The decision to build new data centers in the U.K. predates the country’s June vote to leave the European Union, Carlson said. But giving customers the ability to store data in the U.K. has taken on increased importance since the Brexit vote as clients worry about whether British data privacy rules will diverge from European standards. “Now, whether the U.K. is in Europe or not, they have their own region,” she said.

 

Amazon Web Services declined to specify exactly how many facilities it operates in the country, how many people will be employed or how much money it will invest.

 

Karen Bradley, U.K. Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport, said in a statement that Amazon’s action “is a strong endorsement of our approach to the digital economy” and “shows a clear confidence in the U.K. being open for business and one of the best places in the world for technology companies to invest in and grow.”

Why CRIB Advisors Mentors Singapore, Women networking Singapore?

The Issue


Challenges Women Face Today

  • No Work-Life Balance
  • Loss of Financial Independence
  • Lack of Career Fulfillment
  • Low Fertility Rate

 

Women today are smart, educated and talented, and want to have a fulfilling career. But family is equally, if not more, important. Achieving work-life balance is a struggle for many. Single mothers are a particular subset of women who face significant challenges as the primary caregiver and breadwinner for their families.

 

Today’s career women are continually challenged by the demands of full-time work. The majorities are working 40- 45 hour weeks, and almost every working mother wishes they had more time to spend with their children. On the other hand, mothers who make a decision to leave the workforce face the challenges of a drop in household income alongside rising costs of living, and sometimes a sense of loss of self-fulfillment or identity in giving up their careers.

 

Those who want to want to return to work when their children are older face difficulties in doing so. Meanwhile, the economy loses the contribution of many capable, highly-educated women. Due to these considerations, mothers-to-be often choose to delay starting a family. Singapore’s low Total Fertility Rate (TFR) is recognized as a top concern for Singapore’s future. Despite several incentive programs, married couples seem reluctant to procreate or to have more than two children.

 

The Solutions

 

  • CRIB values the ability of women to make the best choices for themselves and their families.
  • For some women, becoming an entrepreneur may be the answer to achieving the perfect balance between family and career.
  • Being a business owner offers women an opportunity to achieve work-life balance.
  • This doesn’t mean working less hard or being less productive, it’s about having the flexibility to make family a priority.

 

How We Do It

 

Crib Society

 

Our business community of like-minded, experienced women entrepreneurs creates the opportunity to exchange ideas and find inspiration and support from other successful women.

 

Crib Match

 

Our matchmaking programme allows entrepreneurs to find complementary partners to launch a business.

 

Crib Incubator

 

Our business incubator programme will provide CRIB entrepreneurs with invaluable mentorship from industry leaders, access to funding and a trusted network of resources to create successful, viable businesses.

 

Result

 

Women entrepreneurs in supportive business partnerships are able to have a career while still having control over time and choices.

 

Positive Social Impacts

 

New Exciting Business

 

Exciting and viable new businesses come into existence, including innovative social enterprises.

 

Return of Latent Workforce to Economy

 

Together with the return of the latent workforce to the economy, including mid-career professionals, women are able to make a significant contribution to society.

 

Higher Fertility Rate

 

Eventually these women entrepreneurs create jobs that provide work-life balance to their employees, contributing to a societal mindset shift that will spread to the corporate world as well. All this, we hope, will lead to more babies!

Hawkfield Gallery Consultants Review: Growing Up with Art

What makes your upbringing different from others? Are you like Sally Caverly who grew up surrounded with art and loving it?

 

Sally Caverly is an art lover, researcher and a conservationist born in 1962 at Massachusettes and New Hampshire. She is the heart and soul of Hawkfield Gallery, the owner and curator dedicated in making the gallery one of the most attractive places to visit in a shore town halfway between Boston and Cape Cod.

 

Art has become an integrated part of Sally’s life. Her parents are both artists and it seems that they trained her so early on how to run a business by assigning Sally occasionally to serve as an auctioneer for their collection of American impressionist artworks.

 

During her twenties, she started acquiring artworks for her collection. The first artwork she fortunately obtained is a pastel drawing of wild ducks from the famous American pastel artist Willian Henry Chandler. And it seems that her attachment from her home environment which is the East Coast is apparent on her collections as it consists of artworks with birds, geese, ducks and wild animals.

 

Her passion for art combined with a broad experience in the art world has helped her in maintaining the reputation of Hawkfield Gallery in giving a quality service and assistance to art buyers and collectors.

 

Accomplishments

 

Ms. Sally Caverly is currently working as a Director at the North and South Rivers Watershed Association. Her previous works include running online retail store and head of Houghton Mifflin Company’s Research Department. Aside from managing Hawkfield Gallery, Sally loves tutoring students with special needs too. She obtained a degree in Bachelor of Arts in Marketing from Simmons College, a diploma from Phillips Academy in Andover and a Master’s degree in Education.

We can uncover potentially fraudulent behavior with analytical tools that reveal inconsistencies in data. To do this we employ both custom-made and industry-leading tools, including ACL software that analyzes and cross-references large amounts of data from disparate sources.

 

Fraud Risk Management

 

We can help you develop and evaluate your risk management program to decrease your vulnerability to fraud and misconduct. We use interviews, surveys, and focus groups to analyze your existing strategies, refine your fraud-risk profile, and establish the right protocols to avoid the types of problems your business is most susceptible to.

 

Fraud Awareness Training

 

Deterring both internal and external fraud starts with your employees. We can teach them how to assess industry-specific risks, establish preventive actions, and create an environment of mutual proactive vigilance.

Hawkfield Gallery Fine Arts Consultants - American Fine Art in Review

The arts and the entertainment industry have experienced a significant boon with the advent of digital technology. Who could have imagined we would all be downloading, listening to and watching art works and tunes created since the beginning of analog photography and recording media explosion. Music, as we all know, is prone to piracy because of the nature of modern digital technology. However, art works – paintings and sculptures – are more difficult to duplicate or fake in comparison.

 

When it comes to making sure you get the original works, you need a reputable art collector or a fine arts consultant to assist you. And If you are looking for 20th and 21st century American fine art and folk art, particularly in American impressionism, decorative songbirds, wildlife bronzes and shore-bird decoys, you are welcome to visit and browse Hawkfield Gallery which specializes in such art genres. The art collection represents 25 years of collecting work done by the gallery owner, Sally Caverly, who has a B.A. degree in marketing, a master’s degree in education as well as experience as Market Research Division Director of a major publishing house.
