Just hours ago, Bucharest-based beauty Inna released her latest video, “Sun Is Up.” Earlier this week (September 28th), the singer was the most viewed musician on You Tube–a major coup for the blowing-up-worldwide singer. This clip is not quite as “Amazing” as her other videos released in 2010, but it’s still very well done and will likely rack up millions of views just as her other hits have done. File under catchy, light pop fun.
Last night Xconomy presented a “face off” between Jonathan Bush of athenahealth and Girish Navani of eClinicalWorks. While the two companies started with very different approaches, they have both ended up as serious players in the growing electronic medical records business.
Navani said he set out to start a “lifestyle company” with the goal of hiring “five engineers to service five hundred doctors in five years.” The company became significantly larger and grew to 45,000 doctors without raising any outside capital or taking on debt.
In contrast, Bush raised $50M with the ambition at the outset of becoming the major provider of EMR. While there are some subtle differences in their offerings, both companies were successful in their bid to upset what they characterized as a moribund industry whose products (with the exception of Epic whom they said they respected) were overpriced and difficult to use.
In fact, they both said that the Affordable Care Act’s subsidy for meaningful use of EHR was actually counter-productive as it prolonged what they predicted was the inevitable demise of their competitors.
What was especially interesting was that both companies described their
Urdu Bazaar is one of the busiest markets of Lahore, Pakistan. It is situated at opposite side of Mori Gate of walled city, near Anarkali bazaar. This bazaar is known for Book selling, publishing, printing, paper and books related material. From school, college course books to world classics literature books are available here. You can get old and new books on the topic of history, science, religion, music, geography, any topic you can think of.
Urdu Bazaar starts from Circuler Road, opposite of Mori Gate and ends at Chatterjee Road, Back side of Govt College University Lahore. Before partition this bazaar was known as Mohan Lal road and just a few book publishers were settled there, at that time Kashmiri bazaar of Delhi Gate area was the home of book publishers, after partitions they started establishing their business here at
Mohan Lal road. Within few years this road appeared as big market of books and books related stuff.
In early 1950s traders of Mohan Lal road decided to change the name of Mohan Lal road, they must thought that now they
Short but informative video from a women’s breakfast with NBCU’s “Power of the Purse.” It’s women-focused, of course, but interesting to hear the advice, which hasn’t changed in several years. I’m ready for someone to tell brands HOW to get the women, not just the reasons they should. In other words, not just the “be where she is” which is important, but the “talk to her and listen to her” wherever she is. Best sound byte: “today’s woman is fundamentally addicted to choice.”
In the days leading up to the 2010 Commonwealth Games, Delhi has been vilified in the western media for lack of preparedness, unclean facilities, unfinished and potentially unsafe stadiums (a bridge collapsed, injuring dozens) and security lapses. The international community called it a “fiasco” and is putting a lot of pressure on India to rectify the situation. I feel heartbroken about this because I know and love the city of Delhi, and it pains me to see that the western media seems to take particular glee in exposing the “filthy” conditions. Sports columnist Stephen Brunt in Canada’s national Globe and Mail newspaper wrote a very thoughtful column about the situation, a column that should have been in the front section of the newspaper: Huge shadow looms over New Delhi.
In the column, Brunt rightly pointed out, “… this kind of shortfall was inevitable, eventually. It has been coming. And were it not New Delhi now, it would be somewhere else in the very near future, in a city and country that paid too much, that promised too much, that was…
She’s back. The Girl and her Effect. A couple of years ago many of us were inspired by The Girl Effect – a starlingly persuasive and influential text-based animation explaining how to tackle poverty in the developing world by helping young girls fulfill their potential.
Gazillions of views later the sequel is here. Another beautiful, powerful piece of storytelling which just premiered at the Clinton Global Initiative summit in NYC.
Enjoy, spread the word and be inspired to do something.

The US and the economy were for the first time a big focus at the Clinton Global Initiative meeting last week in New York City. Hallelujah! The former president hinted at an effort to get the unemployed back to work and retrained for the new and emerging jobs. Of course, Tom Friedman of the New York Times showed up with a lofty panel of experts, and there were sessions on new market-based solutions, worldwide manufacturing, and clean tech. Admittedly, there was a discussion on “Robust Job Creation in the United States.” The former president did address the issues of small business, manufacturing and clean energy. There was a panel where players such as Wal-Mart, Timberlake, and others discussed overhauling their operations to reduce carbon emissions and create jobs. And there was the tireless work of Laurene Powell Jobs together with her co-founder Carlos Watson at College Track that has been working for more than a decade to change the lives of underprivileged youth by keeping them in school and preparing them for college.
So why not have Bill Clinton turn his full attention to rebuilding America? Obama’s not doing it…
