Ex-Real Madrid target Mourinho to sign a lucrative contract extension at Chelsea

first_imgJose Mourinho has agreed to extend his current contract with Chelsea until the 30th of June 2019, along with a salary of €10.5 million euros per season without bonuses, with the aim of keeping the Portuguese coach to lead a long-term project at Stamford Bridge. In mid-May, after the elimination of Real Madrid in the semi finals of the Champions League at the hands of Juventus, Florentino Perez contacted Mourinho to offer him the manager’s job at the expense of Ancelotti, but the Portuguese rejected a return to the Bernabeu for his current situation at Chelsea. After being accused of being manager signed to get results over the short-term, Mourinho has already proclaimed this year his intention to remain at Chelsea for “at least 10 years” to overhaul the playing squad and continue with his current project, something which Abrahimovic is in agreement with. CEST Jordi Blanco That occurred a couple of months after the first meeting between the executives of Chelsea, where Mourinho got a promise from the English club to fund a large transfer warchest, said to be of around 100 million euros. That money is designated to improve the current squad, as Chelsea have the Champions League as their primary objective. According to the Daily Mail, Roman Abramovich has been advised to renew Mourinho’ current deal which runs out in June 2017, due to the previously stretched relations which resulted in the Russian owner having to let Mourinho go in 2007.  15/06/2015 Upd. at 13:48 last_img read more

This is a significant milestone for them all as players and this will no doubt inspire them to go on to greater things within the GAA.”   Aogán Ó Fearghail, President, GAA, said; “It’s fantastic to see all these players, managers and families together in one room to celebrate this year’s Minor Championship. For the GAA it’s rewarding to see so many proud people here supporting the Football and Hurling Teams of the Year because without that support these players would not be able to reach their potential.

Zlio Launches in US – Build Your Own Online Shop

first_imgrichard macmanus Related Posts Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting French startup Zlio.com, a service that enables any Internet user to start avirtual store, has just launched in the US and also has plans for a UK version. It’s afree template-based system and you select the products you want to sell from a list ofpre-approved merchants. There are 75 merchants in France, 25 in US. At this time youcan’t sell your own products, but that functionality is being worked on. Example shopsinclude a Woody Allen shop and a kids sports store. Note that we first mentionedZlio back in September, in our Top Web Apps inFrance article.The competitionMore than 35,000 shops have been opened in the last 5 months in France and Zlio ishoping for similar success in the US. Right now they have competition in the form of MyPickList, a slick widget-based online shoppingapp. Loomia is similar. Also there is aStore from Amazon (only amazon products) and Shoplinc from Chitika (for people who already have awebsite). CafePress.com is kind of in this markettoo, although their focus is on customizable goods and services.What I like about Zlio is its straightforward positioning, which they’ve only recentlychanged. Zlio.com originally opened in November 2005 in France as a “recommendationservice”. Their positioning at that point was: “Recommend your favorites products to yourfriends and make money”. Zlio CEO Jeremie Berrebitold me they got “thousands of subscribers” but it was very difficult to manage andmaintain – users would recommend once, 2 times, 3 times, but after seeing that they onlymade a few Euros, a lot of users didn’t want to use the service anymore.So in September 2006 Zlio totally changed its market positioning – now Zlio is aservice that “allows any internet user to create his own online shop even if they havenothing to sell.”UsabilityZlio has a nice wizard-type sign-up process. It took me just a few minutes to sign up,select a template, and ‘open’ my store. Thecontrol panel for adding products is slick and easy to use. My one complaint is that Icouldn’t see any way to add bulk products, or a whole category. I had to individually addeach product, which is time consuming. It would be great if I could tell Zlio to add “allmicrosoft office products” or “all Apple iPod products”; even better if I could say “addany Apple iPod product that has at least 4GB of memory” etc. Tags:#e-commerce#web 8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Market There are also some useful promotional tools, such as creating a video to show on“Zlio TV” and a widget to display on your blog. There’s also an area called “boostingtools”, which includes a wizard to help you copy your store into your blog.Business ModelZlio has two business models: CPA & CPC (in France). For the US launch, it is CPAonly for now – but CPC will be introduced in the US soon. The CPA model means that whensomeone buys a product through a shop, the shop owner makes money via a commission (theyare paid through PayPal). The company is based in France, but half the team is in Israeland they are planning to open a US office in the coming months.ConclusionAll in all, it’s a nicely designed app and very well positioned in the market. It kindof reminds of Swickis, which are custom search engines. Having a niche custom online shop will be an attractive (and possibly profitable) proposition for a lot of people. It nicely plays into the needfor specialized and focused online properties, which are increasingly the success storieson the Web. In other words, if I am a Woody Allen fan then what better way to shop forhis products than on a dedicated Woody Allen shop? So I like what Zlio enables and I’llbe watching to see how much uptake it gets. Also I need to work on that R/WW shop! 🙂 Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… A Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai…last_img read more

Google Apps Sync for Microsoft Outlook Announced

first_imgRelated Posts “I think of this as a love story,” began Chris Vander Mey, Senior Product Manager at Google, as he announced Google Apps Sync for Microsoft Outlook, a plug-in that syncs Outlook with Apps, much like Outlook syncs with Exchange.But love? Not so much. Google, intent on building its enterprise channel, has recognized that many Outlook users – particularly enterprise users – aren’t ready to make the leap to the cloud and to Google Apps. But maybe, just maybe, Google Apps Sync is what it will take to woo them.According to a press release, Google Apps Sync works on Outlook 2003 and 2007 and will synchronize email, calendar and contacts data with Google Apps. “It provides access to Global Address List data and enables users to schedule meetings by looking up when attendees are free or busy. It also includes a simple, two-click migration utility which enables users to easily copy their data from a previous Outlook data source, such as Microsoft Exchange servers.Not Quite Gears“Although we use the same protocol as gears, we don’t use gears per se,” explained Vander Mey. “It’s all saved in outlook PST files. From a technical level [there] is a MAPI provider; when you connect to Exchange we have built our own MAPI provider – we just change what’s going out on the wire – as opposed to licensing from Microsoft.”Key Features:E-mail, calendar and contact syncSynchronize all Outlook fields in both directions, keeping them up-to-date; Uses a Google native e-mail protocol.Free/Busy and Global Address look upThe Global Address List feature lets you search for and access e-mail addresses of users and resources in your domain.Simple, user-driven data migrationLetting users move data to Google instead of having to wait for IT admins.Google Apps Sync will be launched this afternoon. You’ll need Outlook 2003 SP3 or 2007 SP2 (or SP1 with a hotfix), running on Windows XP SP2 (with selected hotfixes) or Vista SP1 (with a hotfix).If you want to see how Google Apps for Microsoft Outlook works, watch this three minute video.
