The One Thing That Determines Your Success as a Leader

Leadership is a complex endeavor, but it doesn’t have to be complicated.
We tend to make things more complicated than they need to be and that’s definitely true in the field of leadership. To prove my point, go to Amazon.com and search their book listings for the word “leadership” and see how many returns you get (but wait until you finish reading this article!). What did you find? It was 138,611 as of the writing of this post.
Browsing the titles of some popular best-sellers would lead you to believe that in order to be a successful leader you just need to find the magical keys, take the right steps, follow the proper laws, figure out the dysfunctions, embrace the challenge, ascend the levels, look within yourself, look outside yourself, form a tribe, develop the right habits, know the rules, break the rules, be obsessed, learn the new science, or discover the ancient wisdom. Did I say we like to over-complicate things?
What if successful leadership isn’t really that complicated? What i…

URUOLOGY DEVELOPMENT IN PATIENT CARE BY Dr. NARASIMHAN SUBRAMANIAN

Urology is a branch of medicine which primarily deals with all urine, kidney and reproductive organs-related problems. It is a surgicalspecialty which deals with diseases of the male and female urinarytract, the male reproductive organs and the kidney. It is a surgicalbranch where we surgeons that treat these conditions.
Developments have continuously happened in urology over the lasthundred years. We are trying to highlight those segments ofdevelopment in urology which would make patient care easier either in
terms of diagnosing the condition early or introducing treatmentswhich are less invasive so that we reduce the pain, the duration ofhospitalisation, ensure they return to work early and the amount of
pain and the amount deformity on the scalp becomes negligible.

Gay elderly couple want to marry in Australia during their lifetime

A devoted couple from Sydney, Australia want one thing in their lifetime — to marry each other.

John Challis, 87, and Arthur Cheeseman, 83, met and fell in love in 1967.

"We met at the Art Gallery of New South Wales on the 27th October, 1967," Challis told Mashable Australia, recounting the evening like it was only days ago. "It was a Sunday night, and Arthur and I just happened to be walking out of the art gallery together. We were standing near each other in the foyer and I just turned around and smiled at him and he smiled back at me."

Challis asked Cheeseman if he would like to go and have a cup of coffee, and the pair chatted and found they had many things in common — an interest in the opera, gardening and art. "We met again the next day, and we met again the next day, and we met again the next day... and gradually our relationship built up, and we grew closer and closer together, and the years went on and on and here we are," Challis said.

3 Ways to Use Mobile Marketing to Keep Customers Coming Back

Seventy percent of companies say it’s cheaper to retain an existing customer than to acquire a new one, according to a report. And they are right: acquiring a new customer can be five times more expensive, which is hopefully enough to convince you that customer retention should be on your radar at all times.

So how do I retain customers you might ask? The answer is simple: mobile marketing. Given that 60 percent of the time users spend online is through their mobile devices, establishing a solid mobile presence ensures that your customers always have a piece of your brand at the tip of their fingers.

Here’s how it’s done:

The right place, the right time
Mobile devices draw tons of information from users. Some of this information, such as geolocation, can be instrumental in optimizing your brand’s mobile product specifically for consumers. Knowing where consumers are allows marketers to offer users content that’s relevant to the situation they’re currently experiencing.

The most obvious way…

5 Things Millionaires Do That Most People Don't

My lifelong dream is to create more millionaire students than any other stock trading teacher out there. I’m lucky enough to have reached the seven-figure mark myself, and now, I’m dedicated to sharing everything I’ve learned - including the stock trading patterns that work in any market - with the students in my Millionaire Challenge.

But one thing I realized pretty early on was that, if I wanted to teach people to be millionaires, I had to study people who had already reached this level of wealth. I had to learn what they did differently so that I could help my students to not just hit this magic number, but to retain the money they earn and build generational wealth.

And today, I’m sharing a few of the things I’ve learned with you. I hope they help - no matter what financial stage you’re currently in.

1. Millionaires work hard.
A lot of people think that winning the lottery is their ticket to success, but I’ve got bad news for you. Nearly 90 percent of lottery winners go through their …

Facebook launches live streaming, for famous people

Facebook is now into the business of live streaming
Starting a live stream for celebrities  means tapping the Post button inside the Mentions app, then selecting Live Video. They can add a pithy description for the video, and hit Go Live whenever they're ready.

As with Meerkat and Periscope, celebrities will also be able to toggle between their smartphone's front and rear cameras, see how many viewers have tuned in, as well as view (and hide) their comments. Videos are saved afterwards to their Facebook Pages.

A Facebook live video feature was a long time coming for the social network and a notable omission when it launched an embeddable video player at F8 this March. (If celebrities previously live streamed through Facebook, they used an outside service.)

Facebook Unveils Massive Solar Drone That Will Provide Internet to Rural Areas

Facebook just built a drone that will be able to beam broadband internet to areas across the globe that cannot currently access the internet. 

Connectivity Lab, a Facebook initiative to develop new technology to provide internet accessibility for everyone, recently finalized their new drone called Aquila, according to CNN Money. The project was initiated in 2014 after Facebook acquired U.K.-based drone company Ascenta.

There are 4 billion people across the globe who do not currently have the necessary infrastructure to access internet. Aquila is a project that was designed to bring connectivity to these hard-to-reach places and will be able to do so within a 50-mile radius. Jay Parikh, VP of engineering at Facebook, said in a company post: 


“When finished, our laser communications system can be used to connect our aircraft with each other and with the ground, making it possible to create a stratospheric network that can extend to even the remotest regions of the world.” 

Aquila is a solar…
