Paying It Forward – Online And Mobile Style [Sponsored Post]

first_imgmichael singer Related Posts Even as the industry finds ways to address these issues, experts agree that the potential benefits are too great to ignore. So just about every company in the financial industry is doing what it can to explore the concept with early adopters and build products that will eventually appeal to everyone.Toward A New NormalA $5 bill in your pocket may not buy much these days, but it still comes in handy when you want to leave a tip or buy a bag of fruit at the farmer’s market. The need for cash will be around for a long time, but over time it’s likely to become the exception rather than the rule.The ascendancy of mobile and online payments will be clear when we stop talking about “online payments” and “mobile payments” as something different or exotic, noted Innopay’s de Lange in his report. It will just be another way to buy stuff:“The world is becoming more and more ‘e.’ So the merger of offline and online is basically the disappearing of the first and the latter taking over. In a few years’ time, we will not be writing about e-payments or online payments because it will no longer be a meaningful category. We do still recognize channels and contexts and online payments will diversify to cater for all these channels and contexts.”As buyers and sellers become more and more comfortable with the online and mobile payments, the more likely they will reach for their digital wallets over their real ones. Without even noticing that they’re doing anything noteworthy. Tags:#e-commerce#Mobile Payments#online payments#Payments#What’s In Your Mobile Wallet? What it Takes to Build a Highly Secure FinTech … Why IoT Apps are Eating Device Interfaces Role of Mobile App Analytics In-App Engagement While paying with cash or credit cards won’t go out of fashion anytime soon, but they’re getting some serious competition. Online payments and e-wallets are about to shape not only how, but where and when we buy things. Even more important, they will give consumers the power to choose the payment methods that work to their advantage.Catching Up To The FutureAdvanced payment systems are not a new concept. Science fiction writers like Arthur C. Clarke and Ray Bradbury predicted electronic commerce and futuristic payment systems long before they existed. Both men pointed to a time when people and machines come together, exposing the possibilities of individual identity within a larger ecosystem.In 1974, Clarke predicted personal computers, the Internet and online banking. Bradbury’s Guy Montag from “Fahrenheit 451” used an ATM years before they were invented.Today, futurists today like Ray Kurzweil opine about the “Eternal E-Customer” offering tantalizing glimpses of how devices and people combine in symbiotic relationships. Take the world’s current fascination with smartphones. The fact that we can check our bank balance, pay for groceries and give our kids their allowance all with one small device that we carry around with us all day, indicates the intense desire for a simple, portable and personal way to interact with our finances.What’s Possible NowA variety of companies and industries have been working hard to transform online and mobile systems. The larger credit card issuers have recreated their services online, while companies like PayPal transcend the traditional approaches to online payment. Mobile device makers, telecom carriers and others are now weighing in, with the likes of Google Wallet, Apple Passbook, ISIS Mobile Commerce (a collaboration between AT&T, Verizon, and T-Mobile), and Visa’s E-Wallet making the most noise.As more providers enter the fray, the benefits to consumers become clearer, including electronic coupons, discounts and reduced fees. In the U.S. alone, the redemption value of “deal-a-day” offers – offers distributed via digital channels that typically expire within a few days – will reach $3.9 billion by 2015, according to a McKinsey research report. These coupons are partially a result of brand loyalty, according to Jip de Lange, a consultant at Innopay.“We see payment methods that were originally offered online are now being offered in offline contexts as well, as the PoS [point of sale] terminal functions basically as Internet-enabled device,” de Lange wrote in the Ecommerce Europe: Online Payments 2012 report. “This move not only secures growth potential for years to come, but also increases the relevance of these payment methods as they become part of consumers’ day-to-day routine.”Uneven ProgressMany governments are already moving toward supporting online payment systems. The U.S. Government’s Pay.gov service lets citizens pay and be paid by the government using online accounts. People in Latin America, China, India and Africa are even more likely to incorporate mobile devices in their online payment transactions. Europeans trend toward using online accounts for shopping the Internet, with 58% having done so in 2011, Ecommerce Europe notes.Not all online payment technologies will emerge at once, and not all will eventually succeeed. Researchers at Gartner estimate that Near Field Communications (NFC) is at least five years away from mass adoption. In the meantime, security concerns and the lack of immediate adoption is making many companies disillusioned with aspects of NFC as a payment method: Google is all in, while Apple and PayPal are not.Perceptions of security and privacy remain key issues for all online and mobile payment systems. A recent study by Edgar, Dunn & Company and sponsored by MasterCard noted that the lingering negative public opinion associated with online payments is hindering broader adoption.

Kanhaiya Kumars candidature from Begusarai became dealbreaker between CPI and RJD for

Posted On Oct 12 2019 by

first_imgNew Delhi: Candidature of former JNUSU President Kanhaiya Kumar from Begusarai constituency in Bihar was the “deal-breaker” between CPI and RJD as the Lalu Prasad-led party doubted Kumar’s winnability quotient in view of several controversies surrounding him.According to Rajya Sabha MP and RJD spokesperson Manoj Jha, the CPI-RJD alliance could not be forged also because his party was not willing to compromise on its candidate Tanveer Hassan, considering his popularity and the work done by him in Begusarai. Also Read – Uddhav bats for ‘Sena CM'”RJD has been a very strong force. Even in the so-called Modi wave in 2014 elections, our candidate got almost four lakh votes and since then he has never left Begusarai. It was impossible for us to set aside Tanveer Hassan’s candidature. We have a strong cadre and that wanted Tanveer Hassan and there is nothing we could have done. It is all about our cadre, our people, therefore, another candidature than his became a deal-breaker,” he told PTI. Also Read – Farooq demands unconditional release of all detainees in J&KIn 2014 Lok Sabha elections, Hasan had finished second by losing to BJP’s Bhola Singh by a small margin of over 55,000 votes. CPI’s Rajendra Singh was at a distant third with nearly 1.92 lakh votes. Sources in the RJD claimed that there were “several strong factors” –being an old face, non-controversial image and minority tag–which were in favour of Hassan and contributed to the party’s decision to let go of the alliance. Significantly, according to sources in the CPI’s Bihar unit, there was also discontentment among a section of leaders about the party nominating Kumar and compromising on the alliance. Jayant Jigyasu, who was a close aid of Kanhaiya during the sedition row but later parted way’s to establish RJD’s student wing in JNU, said it was “Kumar’s arrogance and ignorance that led to the alliance fallout”. “Kanhaiya was massively supported in JNU by different factions because he was seen as a leader and not an opportunist. As a leader he should have thought of forming the alliance and defeating the BJP collectively rather than being adamant for the sake of his political career. “There is nothing wrong in having political ambitions but there is much more he could have brought to the table rather than him just becoming a deal breaker for a crucial alliance,” Jigyasu said. Kanhaiya did not respond to repetitive calls made to seek his comment on the alliance fallout. Kanhaiya, who has emerged as a prominent face of Left politics, is pitted in a three-way contest with NDA’s Giriraj Singh and RJD’s potential leader from the constituency Tanveer Hassan. The former JNU leader shot to fame in 2016 and was later arrested on sedition charges following an event on hanging of Parliament attack convict Afzal Guru during which anti-national slogans were allegedly raised. On January 14, Delhi Police had filed a charge sheet in the court against Kumar and others, saying he was leading a procession and supported seditious slogans raised in the JNU campus during an event on February 9, 2016.last_img read more

NASA wants your help bringing back pieces of a potentially hazardous asteroid

Posted On Sep 10 2019 by

first_imgOriginally published May 23.  Comment NASA’s on a mission to collect space dirt from a potentially… Tags NASA Space 12 Photos All that’s needed to hang out on the asteroid is a mapping app, a screen large enough to clearly see images of the asteroid’s surface and a mouse or trackpad that can make precise marks. 5:24 Explore asteroid Ryugu with Japan’s Hayabusa 2 spacecraft An interactive tutorial explains how to get around the CosmoQuest app circling craters, measuring boulders and erasing mistakes. CosmoQuest, a project run out of the Planetary Science Institute that supports citizen science initiatives, offers additional user assistance through an online community where mappers can share tips and high-fives and ask questions. CosmoQuest also shares guidance through livestreaming sessions on Twitch. The original design for capturing a piece of the space rock was based on locating a hazard-free zone with a 160-foot (25-meter) radius on Bennu’s surface. However, because of the unexpectedly rocky terrain, the team is yet to identify such a site.The volunteer asteroid mapping is straightforward work that involves dragging and dropping, an eye for detail and a bit of perseverance. When I signed up Wednesday night at about 9 p.m. PT, more than 70 “Bennu Mappers” were online scouring the asteroid’s surface. The Bennu mapping campaign continues through July 10.asteroidAn easy-to-follow tutorial helps Bennu Mappers get going. Screenshot by Leslie Katz/CNET Bennu measures about 1,600 feet (500 meters), only slightly wider than the height of the Empire State Building, and is considered potentially hazardous. “There’s a very small chance that it will impact Earth in the next century,” Burns has said. Which means you probably don’t need to get out your helmet just yet.In its first five months communing with Bennu, Osiris-Rex has already discovered trapped water and determined that Bennu is between 100 million and a billion years old, making it significantly more mature than predicted. But the mission’s coup de theatre, the sample grab, won’t take place until 2020. That’s when the spacecraft’s fancy robotic arm will reach out and tag the asteroid’s surface with its Touch-And-Go Sample Arm Mechanism, or Tagsam.While touching the rock, the arm will blow a burst of nitrogen gas to loosen up bits of debris that will be then be brought back to Earth when the spacecraft returns in September 2023.The asteroid may contain unaltered material from the beginning of our solar system. The hope is that Bennu’s cargo will yield insights into astronomical processes and resources in near-Earth space and improve our understanding of asteroids that could impact Earth.  Share your voice A view of asteroid Bennu’s surface itaken by the PolyCam camera on NASA’s Osiris-Rex on March 21 from a distance of 2.2 miles (3.5 kilometers).  NASA/Goddard/University of Arizona Before NASA’s Osiris-Rex spacecraft can reach out and grab a piece of asteroid Bennu, it needs to find a safe spot on the space rock’s surface. And for that, NASA wants your help. Osiris-Rex, which arrived at Bennu on Dec. 3, 2018, aims to become the first US spacecraft to return a sample from an asteroid to Earth. Japan’s Hayabusa mission brought back asteroid particles in 2010, with another asteroid-wrangling mission out of Japan under way this year.Since the NASA craft arrived at Bennu, the team has discovered an extremely rocky terrain that threatens the vehicle’s safety. So NASA is asking volunteers to develop a hazard map by measuring Bennu’s boulders and mapping its rocks and craters via a web interface. “Bennu has surprised us with an abundance of boulders,” Rich Burns, Osiris-Rex project manager at NASA Goddard Space Flight Center, said in a statement. “We ask for citizen scientists’ help to evaluate this rugged terrain so that we can keep our spacecraft safe during sample collection operations.” 1 Now playing: Watch this: Sci-Tech Being Bennu Visit to Bennu reveals rubble trouble and seeds of life Osiris-Rex finds water in its first week at asteroid Bennu Spacecraft drops into orbit around asteroid Bennulast_img read more
