HOW LOW CAN THEY GO? THIEVES RANSACK PAROCHIAL HOUSE – PARISHONER THOUGHT SHE WOULD BE RAPED

Posted on by

first_imgSICKO thieves threatened a parishoner as they ransacked a parochial house – while a priest said Mass, Gardai have confirmed.Father Gerard Sweeney said he was saying 7.30pm Ash Wednesday Mass at St Aengus Church at Burt when the gang struck.A woman who had called to the parochial house to help tidy up after building work was dragged around the house as she was asked where his safe was. Father Sweeney said the parishoner was threatened with a screwdriver as the raiders ransacked each room.“She had no idea where the safe was,” said Father Sweeney, who is well-known throughout Ireland as the motorbiking priest.“She thought they were going to rape and kill her. When they found the safe, they locked her in a bathroom and she is claustrophobic.”The victim has described her attackers as in their 20s with ‘west of Ireland accents.’ The thieves took about €2,500 raised for church and charities as well as parish cheque books and personal cheque books.Superintendent Kevin English said: “We view this as a very serious incident, where a defenceless lady was subjected to such trauma. Every effort will be made to bring the perpetrators of this crime to justice.”Gardai spent today carrying out a forensic examination of the house. Officers are investigating a possible link to a VW Bora stolen in Carrigans three hours after the raid and found burnt out in Derry.Anyone who can help should call Buncrana Gardaí on 07493 20540.Follow us on www.twitter.com/donegaldaily Follow us on www.facebook.com/donegaldailyHOW LOW CAN THEY GO?

What Stories Are Your Numbers Telling You?

Posted on by

first_img Essential Reading! Get my 3rd book: Eat Their Lunch “The first ever playbook for B2B salespeople on how to win clients and customers who are already being serviced by your competition.” Buy Now Your sales numbers tell a story. Your numbers paint a picture of what you believe, as well as the actions you take based on those beliefs.If your pipeline is empty, your pipeline metrics tell the story of a salesperson (or sales organization) that isn’t prospecting. Or maybe it tells the story of someone struggling to effectively prospect in a day and age when business acumen, situational knowledge, and value creation are the price of admission.If your pipeline is full of deals that are smaller than your target deal size, the story your average deal size tells might be about a salesperson that is calling too low because he doesn’t feel like he is producing results when he is working on the long sales cycle deals. Or maybe it’s the story of a salesperson that doesn’t call on large clients because he believes they already have partners in place, because they’re too difficult to win.If the time your deals spend in a certain stage of your sales process is longer than it should be, your numbers tell the story of a salesperson that isn’t in control of the sales process. Your time in stage metric might tell the story of a salesperson that isn’t asking for or gaining the commitments she needs. Or it might tell the story of a salesperson that isn’t following a sales process at all.In business-to-business sales, your numbers at the end of the quarter don’t often tell you anything about that quarter. The story your number tells at the end of the quarter is the story of what you did during the prior couple of quarters—maybe even the prior year. It might be the story of a salesperson that worked to make their number, taking action long before it was necessary. Or it might tell the story of someone who took a quarter off waiting for deals to come to them.You are the hero in your story your numbers tell. The story your numbers tell provides you with a picture of your beliefs and your actions. Your numbers tell the story of where you are challenged, and where you are succeeding. They also tell you what you need to do more of and what you need to change. But this is only true if you let the numbers tell you your story.QuestionsWhat stories do your numbers tell?What is the underlying belief that leads to your numbers?What actions result in your numbers telling these particular stories?Why is the story that you tell about your numbers a different story than someone else might tell about your numbers?last_img read more

What Industry Insiders Think of Marissa Mayers 640 Million Deal for BrightRoll

Posted on by

first_img How Success Happens 5 min read November 12, 2014 Hear from Polar Explorers, ultra marathoners, authors, artists and a range of other unique personalities to better understand the traits that make excellence possible. A couple weeks ago, TechCrunch’s Ingrid Lunden and Sarah Buhr broke some big Yahoo news. They reported that Yahoo has signed a term sheet to buy a company called BrightRoll for about $700 million. Today, Yahoo finally announced it has acquired BrightRoll for $640 million.BrightRoll is a video ad tech company. It hosts videos for publishers, and, with algorithms, helps them pick which ads to run against them. Advertisers can also work with BrightRoll to find the right videos to sponsor.There are a few reasons it makes sense for Yahoo to buy BrightRoll.  For a while now, Yahoo has sought to acquire a company that would give it more video advertising inventory to sell in a “programmatic,” or automated fashion. First it tried to by Dailymotion. Later it tried to buy Twitch. BrightRoll’s algorithms might be able to help Yahoo match advertisers to videos more efficiently, thereby allowing it to sell the video ad inventory it already possesses for higher prices.Yahoo would like to turn Tumblr into a YouTube competitor. It needs video-hosting and ad-serving technology to be able to do that.BrightRoll generates $100 million in revenue each year, and it will immediately help Yahoo’s top line start growing again. Back when TechCrunch first published its report, we reached out to several ex-Yahoo ad tech people as well as a number of other sources in the industry to hear what they think of this potential deal.Here’s what we heard.BrightRoll is a good company, but Yahoo could buy its competition for cheaper.Says an industry source: “BrightRoll is a good company, been around a long time, has good revenues (maybe $100 net) and good gross margins. It’s interesting that there are three publicly-traded video ad nets for less $ and none of them are being considered for acquisition (YuMe, Tremor, TubeMogul). Both YuMe and Tremor are highly discounted because their tech sucks and they don’t do programmatic well. TubeMogul is almost entirely buy-side, so Yahoo is probably more interested in sell-side technology.”Yahoo is paying too much.Says shareholder Eric Jackson: “Typical Yahoo deal. Buy the also ran at double the price. Wish they bought Liverail. If it happens, it’s far less objectionable than Tumblr or the 6 dozen acqui-hires – at least there’s going to be some revenue.”BrightRoll is just a clearing-house without great tech.Says a former Yahoo exec: “Desperation play.  Too much of an ad network (just a buy/sell operation, not a true platform). Valuation is absolutely ridiculous.”Yahoo is splitting the baby.Says an industry source: “I think Yahoo is schizophrenic about if they need/want a DSP [a product advertisers can use to find ad inventory] or an SSP [a product publishers can use to sell inventory], Brightroll gives them something that splits the middle.”BrightRoll doesn’t have great tech or software, and Yahoo just acquiring scale.Says a former Yahoo exec: “Terrible. While BrightRoll is a scale player in the hot video space… Their revenue is primarily driven by their media ad network business. It’s IO driven, not tech or SaaS [this means its not as automated as you think]. This is Blue Lithium & Interclick for video [two ad tech acquisitions Yahoo made in the past that some say haven’t gone well]. Yahoo needs ad tech and all they acquire are mobile startups that are going out of business and more unreliable, insertion order driven media networks.”It’s a smart deal, but Yahoo is paying a lot — and it doesn’t have the people to run a smart ad tech business.Says a former Yahoo exec: “I think it’s actually smart. It’s becoming widely acknowledged that the ad format of choice for mobile is video and this gives them a great solution from a recognized leader in the video space. It’s an expensive price though. The problem is after acquisition that you have inept product people like [Yahoo executives] Scott Burke and Mark Morrissey who will more than likely sabotage this from within and until those guys are gone, Yahoo will continue to have problems on the revenue product side.”Where’s the synergy?Says an ex-Yahoo executive: “Not sure I see the real synergy with Yahoo. More video inventory? [Feels like they are saying,] ‘We need to do something. This is something. Let’s do it.'”It doesn’t solve Yahoo’s real probem.Says a former Yahoo executive: “Buying ad tech doesn’t solve the company’s fundamental problem as not being relevant to users (declining engagement) and consequently not having mindshare with advertisers/agencies. While it could help squeeze out higher prices from it’s own inventory, it cannot be a game changer. Plus Yahoo’s poor track record of integrating ad network businesses raises questions on how well it can integrate the ad network piece of BrightRoll. Yahoo hasn’t made much of the Blue Lithium or Interclick acquisitions. As a shareholder I’d rather have the estimated $700M given back – as a dividend or stock buybacks.” This story originally appeared on Business Insider Listen Nowlast_img read more
