New rule could see re-election of BCCI bigwigs

first_imgA quiet but sure move is afoot within the BCCI to enable its president – and, maybe, other office bearers as well – to be re-elected after completion of his three-year term.The existing rules clearly prohibit office-bearers from being re-elected for the same post, except for the five vicepresidents, who can be reelected for a second term.Only select officials have been told in confidence about this move, which may become a reality well before incumbent president N Srinivasan’s tenure ends in September 2014.Who knows, this rule may be amended as early as September 15, when a special general body meeting is being convened for some other amendments relating to the election of the president. A three-fourth majority of the members present and entitled to vote is required to effect any amendment.Members of the working committee admitted that they were anticipating Srinivasan to raise the issue of re-election of the president during the meeting held in Chennai on Wednesday.”It was a hot issue during informal discussions before the meeting, though it was not on the agenda. In fact, a very senior member of the Board was anticipating it to come up at the meeting and told me that this proposal would be raised under ‘any other business’ towards the end of the meeting,” an official who attended the meeting told Mail Today. “It didn’t come up, though.”Another senior official said that the presence of the last BCCI president, Shashank Manohar, and his meeting with Jagmohan Dalmiya, president of the Cricket Association of Bengal, fuelled speculation. He said that they met Srinivasan separately before the meeting.advertisement”Since Manohar, a well-known lawyer, is also well versed with the BCCI constitution, no alteration of rules and regulations can effectively be done without his important inputs,” the official pointed out.”A special general body meeting is being convened on September 15 in Chennai to amend rules for the election of the president, enabling the concerned zone to nominate someone from outside its zone, provided two of the member associations of that region agree to it.”Some other rules could also be amended at this meeting and, you never know, the one concerning the re-election of the president could also be altered. It’s also possible that not just the president, but the amendment may allow other office-bearers as well to be reelected for a second term.”Rule 15 (vi) of the BCCI constitution prohibits its officebearers, barring the five vice-presidents, from re-election.It clearly states: “No office bearer shall be eligible for a reelection for an additional term for the same office, after they complete their term/extended term. However, the vice-presidents may be re-elected for one more term of three years.”Going by the numbers he has, getting the approval of the house would be a cakewalk for Srinivasan, who will complete the first year of his three-year term next month. Unlike in the past, currently there is virtually no opposition in the BCCI, after Dalmiya buried his differences with the Manohar/Srinivasan group sometime ago.Even when former BCCI president Dalmiya, who reportedly supported the move to amend the constitution at Wednesday’s meeting, was part of the weak opposition in July 2007, as many as 67 amendments were effected at a special general body meeting chaired by Board president Sharad Pawar.For the other constitution change – of proposing someone from outside the zone for the president’s post – interestingly, the official reason being cited for the need of this amendment is that there are “not many qualified people” in east zone, whose turn it will be next year to nominate a candidate for the president-elect’s post.Be that as it may, Dalmiya should have no problem in nominating Delhi cricket chief Arun Jaitley, as he is widely believed to be the candidate for the president-elect’s position.According to the proposed amendment, as explained by Srinivasan on Wednesday, a zone would need only a proposer and a seconder to nominate a person from outside. And, by virtue of being the president of two associations – Bengal and the Kolkata-based National Cricket Club, Dalmiya can do it singlehandedly.last_img read more

New Music Monday: Bassnectar

first_img Wolves Whiskey is Made By Sneaker Moguls for People Looking for Something Different Bassnectar is one of the longest standing and most respected artists in American electronic dance music. He is the original long hair behind the tables, having been in the game well before most of his contemporaries and amassing an epic fan base and having sold over 160,000 tickets to his solo shows alone in 2013. His art brazenly oversteps the bounds of contemporary EDM, pulling from a dynamic array of source material and attracting lovers of all genres, from dubstep to metal, punk rock, hip hop, and all forms of EDM (drum & bass, trip hop, etc) and beyond. His art is more than just an auditory experience; it serves to evoke all human senses with live shows that feature unparalleled light shows and awe-inspiring visual queues. Bassnectar intends to not only foster its own community of loyal Bass Heads, but also contribute to the global community at large through charity and social change by giving one dollar from every ticket sold to a non-profit, as part of his “Dollar Per Bass Head” Program.Bassnectar is the brainchild of Lorin Ashton, a San Francisco-based DJ, producer and artist. Lorin, who released his first album in 2001, began the project as an open-sourced musical experiment exploring the interplay between music and community. His music fuses everything into an electro-synthesis of intense basslines and hypnotic soundscapes. Coming from a background in death metal, Ashton was not intent on approaching EDM from a traditional standpoint and it was a very natural and unique progression. It is this openness to exploring new ways of creating dance music that has attracted droves of loyal fans to Bassnectar’s recordings and live performances. Being purposely limitless, Bassnectar is as diverse as it is heavy, as raw as it is meticulous, and as fierce as it is imaginary. This explorative take on music led to a deep involvement in the death metal scene of the nineties. Ashton started a band called Pale Existence and began playing and promoting underground shows.In 1995 Ashton went to his first rave and was instantaneously switched on to electronic music and its culture. In the following years, he became exceedingly more involved in the scene, promoting shows, distributing food and assistance to concertgoers, buying records and eventually learning to DJ after studying electronic music production. Lorin equated the turntables to drumming and could match beats immediately in an almost savant-like way. He started to throw parties in venues ranging from dorm buildings and warehouses to beaches and artichoke fields, where he spun psychedelic trance (which was most similar to his familiar death metal in his opinion). As he entered college, Ashton began to refine his skills as a producer, splicing up a wide array of music and experimenting with old school synthesizers. Taking cues from his metal background, Ashton decidedly kept all of his musical workings strictly underground, a sentiment that he has continued to foster throughout his career. As time progressed Lorin garnered more and more notoriety and started to play larger parties, first in the Bay Area and then eventually nationally and internationally. All this hype led to appearances at large scale festivals in the early 2000s, including Burning Man and Shambala. Always a very hands-on artist, Ashton climbed the rungs of the EDM ladder on his own, starting proudly from his own unique standpoint.Ashton went on to found and be the head-producer of Amorphous Music and has utilized his label as a launching pad for a series of groundbreaking releases, including 2010’s Wildstyle, 2011’s Divergent Spectrum (reached #3 on the main iTunes chart as well as #1 on the electronic chart for months) and 2012’s Vava Voom featuring the self titled single featuring Lupe Fiasco. Through his self-run Bassnectar Labs studio, he has collaborated with the likes of KRS-One, Perry Farrell, Gogol Bordello, Fever Ray, Spearhead and STS9, and has worked on remix projects with the likes of esteemed producers Z-trip, Diplo, BT, 6Blocc, DJ Vadim, and RJD2. In particular, his remix of Ellie Goulding’s “Lights” was a major hit (was in the top 10 on iTunes Electronic chart for 28 weeks straight and at #1 for 12 weeks) and helped to expand his fan base into the global realm of indie-pop lovers.Bassnectar’s 2012 Album Vava Voom has been critically acclaimed by the likes of Rolling Stone, Spin, The New Yorker, NPR and many others. It was followed by a sold out North American tour that brought 80,000 attendees to solo shows in just under three weeks, plus two sold out nights at Denver’s Red Rocks Amphitheatre (10,000 cap). The fall of 2012 saw the release of the Freestyle EP and Mixtape which teamed Ashton up with acclaimed artists such as Angel Haze, Mimi Page and DC Breaks while in the midst of his fall tour. In 2013 Ashton also sold out his third consecutive New Years Eve show at Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena bringing his year end ticket count to just over 160,000.In 2014, Bassnectar shows no signs of slowing down. On June 24, he will release his follow-up record, Noise Vs. Beauty, with features from Rye Rye, Fashawn & Zion I, and Donnis among others. Lorin will also kick off the summer with two sold out shows at Red Rocks, his fourth sold-out appearance in as many years. Additionally he will play headlining sets at Tomorrowland, The Hudson Project, North Coast Music Festival, TomorrowWorld, EDC New York and Paradiso Festival, among others.Bassnectar is particularly infamous for incomparably raucous live shows that feature state of the art lightshows and enough bass to work crowds into palpable frenzies. His performances are so successful and sought out that in 2011 he made the top 3 hard ticket sales along with fellow EDM artists Deadmau5 and Tiesto. The Bassnectar tour, which travels with its own custom sound rig, has headlined stops at some of the most noted venues and festivals in the country and always attracts massive sold-out crowds, some numbering over 10,000 for non-festival solo show dates. In addition to celebrated sets at Coachella, Lollapalooza, ACL, Bonnaroo, Hang Out, HARD and Ultra Music Festival, Ashton has inaugurated his own daylong extravaganza for EDM lovers of all ages. Dubbed the Bass Center has featured the likes of Zedd, A-Trak, Glitch Mob, Wolfgang Gartner, and Big Gigantic.Purchase Noise vs. Beauty at Amazon, iTunes, or at Bassnectar’s official website!http://www.bassnectar.net/ Editors’ Recommendations The 10 Best Whiskies For Boulevardiers The Absolute Best Rye Whiskey Brands for Under $50 WhistlePig Teams Up With Four Chefs on a New Whiskey Rabbit Hole Rebrands and Launches New Whiskey last_img read more

Irish Heart with Caribbean Soul: Tullamore D.E.W. Releases Rum Cask-Finished Whiskey

first_img The Best Whiskey for Whipping Up a Whiskey Sour How does one make Irish whiskey better? A couple of answers come to mind. Some may be saying, “You can’t! It’s already perfect!” Others may be saying, “Add more whiskey!” For the minds behind Tullamore D.E.W., the answer was “Finish it in a rum cask!”They weren’t wrong. The resulting product, Tullamore D.E.W. XO Rum Cask Finish, is the latest permanent expression from the distillery and tastes pretty damn good.To create the whiskey, the Tullamore team took their original whiskey and experimented by finishing it a variety of different rum casks (at any given time there are multiple experiments going on, which have yielded, among other products, the Tullamore D.E.W. Cider Cask finish). The winning type of casks were those filled with Demerara rum, which impart tropical and spice notes onto the whiskey.The rum was also a product of the company’s latest campaign, The Beauty of Blend,which highlights that, much like Tullamore D.E.W., blending impacts just about everything and everyone for the better.Taking a step back from Tullamore D.E.W., it’s important to note that during the 16th and 17th centuries, tens of thousands of Irish immigrated to the Caribbean. Once there, they blended their knowledge of whiskey distilling with the local rum distilling knowledge to making everything better — and everyone a little bit boozier — in the process. The release’s label reflects this heritage and inspired by trade maps and passport stamps.(To wit, Irish Jamaicans are still the second-largest population on the island after Jamaicans with African ancestry.)Enough history, though — we know you’re here for whiskey, and whiskey you will get.On the nose, you’ll find vanilla and oak playing against citrus notes and the slightest bit of spice. The body is smooth and creamy, with tropical banana notes mixing with caramel and raisins, followed by a long finish full of ripe dates and a little more spice. Those who are familiar with Tullamore D.E.W.’s triple-distilled whiskeys will get all that they already know and love and then some.Great on its own, Tullamore D.E.W. Caribbean Rum Cask Finish also works great as half of a D.E.W. and a brew. While a nice Irish stout goes wonderfully with the classic Tullamore D.E.W., we recommend an IPA that gives off the tropical citrusy notes that would only boost those flavors in the whiskey (some options include Sierra Nevada’s Tropical Torpedo or Green Flash Brewing’s Spanish Trampoline, which you can read more about here.)Tullamore D.E.W. Caribbean Rum Cask Finish is 43 percent ABV, retails for around $27, and will be a permanent addition to the Tullamore D.E.W. line — a great thing to remember if you’re looking for something new to break into on St. Patrick’s Day. If Tullamore D.E.W. Caribbean Rum Cask Finish isn’t going to do it, though, you could always head to the Caribbean for a vacation.

Knud E Hansen Rolls Out New RoPax Design

first_imgzoomImage Courtesy: Knud E. Hansen Danish marine consultancy Knud E. Hansen has unveiled its newest design of a 154-meter roll-on/roll-off passenger (RoPax) ferry that can transport up to 1,500 passengers and 440 cars. As informed, the vessel has a service speed of 25 knots and can operate close to optimum engine load even at slow speeds due to its diesel electric propulsion plant and azimuthing pods.The four engines have a combined power of approximately 48 Megawatts and are fueled by marine diesel oil (MDO).There are also two tunnel thrusters located at the bow which, combined with the azipods, allow the vessel to move without any forward or aft motion. What is more, there is a large battery bank to power the vessel while dockside, allowing for zero emissions in port.Boasting an additional 657 lane meters for trucks and trailers, the vessel features two car decks below the Main Deck that are accessed via fixed ramps. The Main Deck gives priority to trucks, which can be loaded via an extra-wide stern ramp. There is also a dedicated passenger ramp astern with an escalator leading to the accommodation decks.According to the company, the vessel is certified as a EuroClass Type A ship and is fully SOLAS compliant. Knud E. Hansen aims to achieve the highest level of survivability with strict adherence to Safe Return to Port (SRtP) requirements through the inclusion of redundant, segregated power and propulsion systems as well as passenger safe havens and an auxiliary wheelhouse.The ship’s maneuvering and docking capabilities make it suitable for the Mediterranean market, however, it can be also operated in a variety of locations and conditions worldwide, Knud E. Hansen noted.Knud E. Hansen developed the interior design in cooperation with B33.last_img read more

AnnaLynne McCord And Corey Feldman Help Mark World Day Against Human Trafficking

first_imgOn Thursday, July 24 2014, celebrities, leaders in the entertainment industry and respected members of the community joined survivors of domestic violence and human trafficking at the beautiful Crescent Hotel in Beverly Hills for an intellectual salon to celebrate World Day Against Human Trafficking.Rani Hong, AnnaLynne McCord and Amy MalinCredit/Copyright: Igor SpektorAmy Malin and the Tronie Foundation co-hosted this very special event to enlighten leaders in Hollywood on how they can play an important role in helping to eradicate human trafficking and domestic violence.Corey Feldman, actor, musician and survivor of child abuse and sexual assault shared his insights about what it was like to be an exploited child, before introducing guest speaker Rani Hong.Rani Hong, co-founder of the non-profit The Tronie Foundation, a child trafficking survivor and a special advisor to the United Nations, shared her remarkable story with guests and discussed how the Tronie Foundation is using the voices of survivors of human trafficking to speak out and abolish slavery once and for all. Rani showed guests a powerful clip from her segment on “The Oprah Winfrey Show”, which detailed her story of being sold into slavery in India at the age of seven. Rani also discussed the amazing work her non-profit the Tronie Foundation is doing with their comic book project to educate children all over the world about the dangers of human trafficking and exploitation and their Freedom Seal project to educate consumers about global companies who don’t use slave labor or unfair work practices in their supply chain.Last year Rani addressed the General Assembly of the United Nations in New York City. Rani’s goal was to give a voice to the continued plight of millions of enslaved people throughout the world, in part through the designation of a day being formally set aside in which the world recognizes these issues, and remind the world of the need to protect the rights of victims of human trafficking.In response to Rani’s efforts, the United Nations designated July 30th as World Day Against Trafficking In Persons.“The importance of this issue has been brought into renewed international attention with the recent kidnappings in Nigeria and the unaccompanied minors at the United States’ borders. This is why I’m telling my story today. There are millions of other individuals, like that little girl I was — imprisoned, enslaved, and silenced — unable to tell their stories. I speak for those without a voice. I want to urge the entertainment industry to take an active role in the fight against the modern day form of slavery,” said Rani Hong.Hill Harper and Amy MalinCredit/Copyright: Igor SpektorAfter Rani spoke, Trueheart Events partner Amy Malin, shared her powerful story of being a survival of sexual assault, domestic violence and exploitation. There wasn’t a dry eye in the room when Amy opened up about the torture she endured as someone’s prisoner for a year when she was just eighteen years old.Amy offered a plan of action to the room of Hollywood insiders regarding the steps they can take to help eradicate domestic violence and human trafficking. Amy urged movie producers to make sure that they aren’t doing business with slave lords and with companies that use unfair work practices.Amy also said that Hollywood can help shine a spotlight on the issues of domestic violence and human trafficking by showcasing these important stories in film and on TV by featuring strong, powerful and resilient female heroes that are survivors.Actress and survivor AnnaLynne McCord echoed Amy’s remarks and said the time to tell the stories of survivors is now. Amy also urged the crowd to blacklist industry titans who are convicted of abuse and sexual assault instead of celebrating them and giving them awards for their work.Amy and AnnaLynne announced their plan to tour the country together this year to speak to college students about domestic violence. Both women are excited to share their stories of survival as cautionary tales to young women and to offer tips to help keep vulnerable and susceptible college students safe from harm. Since Amy and AnnaLynne have gone public with their stories of survival, both women have offered support to many survivors of violence around the world that have reached out to them.“I am so honored and excited to partner with my soul survivor sister AnnaLynne McCord and to have the opportunity to speak to our nation’s youth about the very important issue of domestic violence,” said Amy Malin. “I know that AnnaLynne and I will be able to offer other survivors hope for a better life and a much-needed community of support.“As we go to the frontlines, where it is reported that at least 1 in 4 college women will be the victim of sexual assault during her academic career, we are hopeful that we can help prevent other young women from becoming another statistic. No campus is immune to this vicious plague on humanity and we’re determined to do our part to stop the violence.”Some of Hollywood’s brightest stars including AnnaLynne McCord (“90210”), Chloe Flower (classical pianist), Corey Feldman (“Goonies”), Hill Harper (“CSI: New York”), Nestor Serrano (“24”) and Ryan Devlin (MTV’s “Are You The One?”) joined leaders in the entertainment industry and government officials at the event to show their support for survivors of human trafficking and domestic violence. Guests enjoyed gourmet cuisine generously catered by the team at the Crescent Hotel and specialty cocktails curated by DAMA Tequila.“The Crescent Hotel was delighted to host Amy Malin and the Tronie Foundation’s intellectual salon and valiant efforts towards “World Day Against Trafficking in Persons” to help eradicate this horrible violence”, said Susan Cronin, owner of the Crescent Hotel.last_img read more

Moroccan Man Arrested in Spain For Attempting to Join ISIS

Rabat – A Moroccan man was arrested this Tuesday in Pamplona, northern Span for planning to travel to Syria in order to join the ranks of the so called Islamic State.A statement by Spanish Ministry of Interior identified the suspect as a 32-year-old man who owned a restaurant in the northern city of Pamplona.According to the same source, the Moroccan national reportedly used his restaurant to show and distribute IS videos and photographs. He also worked to recruit militants to travel to Syria for the group.  The statement said Civil Guard intelligence started investigating the suspect after showing “clear signs of radicalization, including changing his behavior and appearance as well as his circle of friends.”The suspect’s family members had severed ties with him over his extremism, said the interior ministry.This comes only a few days after two other Moroccans were arrested in Spain over suspected ISIS links last week.The two suspects, who are both from Tangiers, were arrested in Barcelona, for spreading the ideology of ISIS via social networking sites, targeting in particular young women. read more

AOL Buys Huffington Post for 315 Million

first_imgAOL isn’t the first major player to be interested in HuffPo. According to an article in Poynter.org, former NBC Universal presdient Jeff Zucker claimed that NBC also attempted to negotiate a purchase with the dotcom for a year and a half ago but “…never could agree on price.”  The Huffington Post generated $30 million in revenue and 26 million unique users in 2010, according to comScore. In a conference call with analysts, AOL CFO Arthur Minson said Huffington Post could generate $50 million in revenue in 2011. Meanwhile, AOL cut an estimated 2,500 jobs last year, according to The New York Times. The deal “will create a next-generation American media company with global reach that combines content, community, and social experiences for consumers,” said AOL CEO Tim Armstrong in a statement. One week after Newsweek and The Daily Beast finalized their merger, AOL has announced that it will buy The Huffington Post for $315 million. Huffington Post founder Arianna Huffington will take over AOL editorial operations going forward and AOL sites such as Politics Daily and Daily Finance could be shut down, with writers transferring to Huffington Post, according to The New York Times. Huffington herself is making out well in the deal, reciving $100 million, according to the Washington Post. On Monday morning after the deal was announced, Huffington reportedly toasted her colleagues with “champagne and Greek cookies.” While AOL’s recent content strategy has emphasized, quick, low cost editorial through initiatives such as local news network Patch, it’s also made several recent high profile content acquisitions, including TechCrunch and video distribution company 5min media. last_img read more

Clevelands deadline deals separated them from Boston in the East

first_imgCleveland’s deadline deals separated them from Boston in the EastThe Cavs overhauled most of their roster with a slew of deadline deals in which they acquired George Hill, Rodney Hood in a three-team deal with the Kings and Jazz, and Jordan Clarkson and Larry Nance, Jr. from the Lakers for malcontent Isaiah Thomas.In their debut against Boston, a re-energized LeBron and his new squad manhandled the Kyrie Irving and the Celtics on Paul Pierce’s jersey retirement ceremony day, and Colin thinks the deadline roster reformation has ended any hope that Boston can win the East this season.“Cleveland separated from Boston and Cleveland absolutely closed the gap on Golden State.” The Patriots are fun to play for because constantly winning is funEagles offensive lineman Lane Johnson called the Patriots a ‘fear based organization’ in a post Super Bowl interview and described the New England players as robotic.  Johnson said he would rather win one Super Bowl with the personality driven Eagles than five with the stiff Patriots.Colin thinks Johnson is off base because even though the Patriots are more buttoned up than Philly, the main goal in professional sports is to win, and no one has won more consistently than the NFL than the Patriots. Colin thinks it sounds like a blast.“Football is fun when you’re winning. Nobody wins more and more consistently than Gronk, Brady, Belichick and the Patriots.” Also:-Why the Niners are Colin’s Super Bowl dark horse pick in the NFCGuests:Doug Gottlieb – FS1 Analyst and host of The Doug Gottlieb show is in-studio talking new look Cavs first game; and why the Niners did more than test drive Jimmy G;Chris Long – Eagles Defensive End is in-studio discussing the different approaches in New England and Philly; the challenges of growing up as the son of a Hall of Famer; and what he saw from Jimmy G in his year with New England.Chris Broussard – FS1 NBA Analyst is in-studio talking Cavs deadline moves and if they can allow the Cavs to compete with Golden State.last_img read more

first_imgAugust 29, 2013 Free Webinar | Sept 5: Tips and Tools for Making Progress Toward Important Goals 3 min read Register Now »center_img Not sure if you should be working or “twerking”? (Hint: working, definitely working.) Should you be planning a “babymoon” or getting a “fauxhawk”?The Oxford Dictionaries Online wants to help. It has added definitions for 65 new buzzwords and phrases to its official lexicon.Of the new buzzwords, nearly 20 percent are related to technology. In the fast-paced world of tech, the last thing you want to do is fall behind on the latest terminology.Here’s a look at the 12 tech buzzwords on the list, in no particular order, and what they mean:1. phabletIt’s a smartphone. No, it’s a tablet. Wait, it’s a smartphone that’s so large it looks like a tablet.2. emojiKnow all those annoying, overly emotional animated faces your friends text and message in their communications to you? Those are emoji.Related: Move Over James Bond. Here Comes a Jetpack for the Rest of Us3. digital detoxThis is something most of us want but can usually never achieve. A digital detox is the act of unplugging from electronic devices like computers and smartphones for a period of time. Can you enjoy a vacation without checking your email?4. selfieYou’ve probably seen people on the street, holding up their smartphones while fixing their hair and adjusting their clothes. These people aren’t necessarily crazy. They’re taking pictures of themselves to text to friends or plaster over their social networks. These are selfies. Now you know.5. click and collectAccording to the Oxford definition, this one is a British term that refers to the ability for online shoppers to buy or order products from a store’s website and collect them from a physical store nearby.6. unlikeYou’ve already “liked” this article on Facebook, right? Unliking is when you withdraw a previously given like on a webpage or social-media site.7. MOOCWe hadn’t heard of this one before. It refers to massive open online course — a class attended online that’s made available for free to a large number of people.Related: Someday, Google Glass Could Track the Ads You See.

Transaction are said to be secured using what’s called public key cryptography encryption, a two-part encryption process. Got it?9. hackerspaceAs it sounds, this refers to a space where tech geeks and hackers can gather to work on projects while sharing equipment, ideas and other resources.10. internet of thingsSome think this phrase has already “jumped the shark,” to steal from another one-time popular buzz-phrase. But it refers to the process by which everyday items — such as home appliances or watches — are being updated so that they are connected to the internet.11. BYOD Are you reading this article on your personal iPhone? Do you also use said iPhone for work duties, such as checking email and filing reports? If so, you fall into the “bring your own device” movement, meaning you or your company prefers you to use a personal device rather than one supplied to you by your employer.12. space tourismYep, this is a thing now. With companies like Richard Branson’s Virgin Galactic and Elon Musk’s SpaceX beginning to take off, “space tourism” refers to travelling into space for recreational purposes. Some day. You’ll see.Related: Check Out This Brainwave-Reading Headband That Could Control All Your Devices  Attend this free webinar and learn how you can maximize efficiency while getting the most critical things done right.last_img read more

Going forward, Microsoft 365 Enterprise replaces Secure Productive Enterprise to double-down on the new customer promise of empowering employees to be creative and work together, securely.Microsoft plans to launch two Microsoft 365 Enterprise editions, Microsoft 365 E3 and Microsoft 365 E5. The company has yet to announce how these two editions differ from each offer.Update: The official Microsoft 365 Enterprise site details the differences between Microsoft 365 E3 and E5: Microsoft 365 E3Microsoft 365 E5    Office applicationsFeature Word, Excel, PowerPointfeature is included feature is included Email & calendarFeature Outlook, Exchangefeature is includedfeature is includedChat-based workspaceFeature Teamsfeature is includedfeature is includedVoice, video & meetingsFeature Skype for Businessfeature is includedfeature is includedVoice, Video and MeetingsFeature PSTN Conferencing, Cloud PBXPSTN Conferencing, Cloud PBX are not includedfeature is includedSocial & internetFeature SharePoint, Yammerfeature is includedfeature is includedThreat protectionFeature Microsoft Advanced Threat Analytics, Windows Defender Antivirus, Device Guardfeature is includedfeature is includedThreat protectionFeature Windows Defender Advanced Threat Protection, Office 365 Advanced Threat Protection, Office 365 Threat IntelligenceWindows Defender Advanced Threat Protection, Office 365 Advanced Threat Protection, Office 365 Threat Intelligence are not includedfeature is includedIdentity & access managementFeature Azure Active Directory P1, Windows Hello and Credential Guardfeature is includedfeature is includedIdentity and Access ManagementFeature Azure Active Directory P2Azure Active Directory P2 is not includedfeature is includedDevice & app managementFeature Microsoft Intunefeature is includedfeature is includedInformation protectionFeature Office 365 Data Loss Prevention, Windows Information Protection and BitLocker, Azure Information Protection P1feature is includedfeature is includedInformation ProtectionFeature Azure Information Protection P2, Microsoft Cloud App Security, Office 365 Advanced Security ManagementAzure Information Protection P2, Microsoft Cloud App Security, Office 365 Advanced Security Management are not includedfeature is includedAdvanced complianceFeature Advanced eDiscovery, Customer Lockbox, Advanced Data GovernanceAdvanced eDiscovery, Customer lockbox, Advanced Data Governance are not includedfeature is includedAnalyticsFeature Delvefeature is includedfeature is includedAnalyticsFeature Power BI Pro, My AnalyticsPower BI Pro, My Analytics are not includedfeature is includedIt is clear however that Microsoft uses the same system that it uses for Office 365 where Office 365 E3 and E5 are also available.The core difference between those? According to this Office product comparison page ” advanced security, analytics, and voice capabilities” in Office 365 Enterprise E5.Microsoft 365 Enterprise is designed for “large organizations” according to Microsoft. General availability date is August 1, 2017.Microsoft 365 BusinessMicrosoft 365 Business was purpose-built for small and medium-sized customers that have little to no IT resources on staff, do not rely on an Active Directory domain controller, and need a solution that provides their employees with the best-in-class productivity and collaboration capabilities of Office 365 and device management and security solutions to safeguard business data and assets across devices.Microsoft 365 Business  is designed for businesses with up to 300 users. It integrates Office 365 Premium with “tailored security and management features from Windows 10 and Enterprise Mobility + Security”.The Windows 10 version that is included in Microsoft 365 Business is not mentioned in the blog post on the Office blog. It is likely that Microsoft will integrate Windows 10 Professional and not Enterprise in the package, but we have to wait for confirmation before we know that for sure.Update: The official product site lists Windows 10 Professional as the version that is included.Microsoft did reveal pricing and availability for Microsoft 365 Business. Microsoft 365 will be available as a public preview on August 2, 2017, and available worldwide in the Fall of 2017. The price of the subscription-based package is $20 per user per month.Additional details, for instance whether there is a minimum number of users for either package, are unclear at this point in time.Office 365 Business Premium $12.50 user/monthMicrosoft 365 Business $20 user/month    Office applicationsFeature Office on tablets and phonesfeature is included feature is included  Feature Fully installed and web versions of Office appsfeature is included feature is included File & document viewing & editingFeature 1 TB file storage and sharingfeature is includedfeature is includedCollaboration servicesFeature Business class email (50GB), calendar, and contactsfeature is includedfeature is includedCollaboration servicesFeature Online meetings (instant messaging, audio, and HD video chat/conferencing)feature is includedfeature is includedCollaboration servicesFeature Microsoft Teams chat-based workspacefeature is includedfeature is includedBusiness applicationsFeature Outlook Customer Manager, Bookingsfeature is includedfeature is includedDevice managementFeature Single console to manage user and device settings feature is includedDevice managementFeature Self-service PC deployment with Windows AutoPilot feature is includedDevice managementFeature Automatically deploy Office apps to Windows 10 PCs feature is includedSecurityFeature Protect company data across devices feature is includedSecurityFeature Secure access to documents on mobile devices feature is includedSecurityFeature Protect Windows 10 devices against malware, viruses, and spyware with Windows Defender feature is includedMaximum number of usersFeature Up to 300feature is includedfeature is includedMicrosoft announced in the same blog post that three new applications are coming for Office 365 Business Premium and Microsoft 365 Business. These are Microsoft Listings, an email marketing service, Microsoft Connections, an app to publish business information on “top sites”, and Microsoft Invoicing, an app to create and deliver “professional invoices”.Closing WordsMicrosoft has offered Windows 10 subscriptions before, but only for Enterprise customers. The subscription model is now available for businesses as well. It is an extra $7.50 for businesses who are subscribed to Office 365 Premium already, and it brings along with it several device management options next to Windows 10 Professional.Now You: What’s your take on Microsoft 365? Do you think Microsoft will offer subscriptions for home users in the future as well?ResourcesMicrosoft 365 BusinessMicrosoft 365 EnterpriseSummaryArticle NameMicrosoft 365: Windows and Office subscription bundleDescriptionMicrosoft 365 is a new subscription-based service by Microsoft that includes Windows and Office 365 in a single package.Author Martin BrinkmannPublisher Ghacks Technology NewsLogo Advertisementlast_img read more
