MARKETING STREET FIGHTER
Where did you learn marketing? Did you take a course? Did you get an MBA? Did you hire an MBA? Did you work for a consumer products company? Marketing Street Fighter reviews how the author learned marketing on the mean streets of New York City. Read the stories about growing up on the streets and how it relates to the field of marketing. Meet Billy Bat, “Blades” Marino and others.
See how the tough streets of Hell’s Kitchen prepared this author for a marketing career. Meet the characters he grew up with….tough guys who were all marketing geniuses (but they didn’t know it). It’s an easy fun read with New York City as a backdrop.
WITHOUT A STRATEGY
Why do companies work without a strategy?
Simple. Executives are afraid that by planning a strategy, there will be more work. Nothing could be further from the truth. A strategy (or set of strategies) will refine and define activities. If activities aren’t on the strategy, they should be avoided. It’s a classic case of an overused phrase: work smarter not harder.
The Workbook is organized logically. It starts by helping the user understand the market, the firm itself and the directions being pursued. It asks the user to undergo common methodologies such as defining missions and visions. The user is then required to pull out actionable strategies, measurement techniques and list the parties responsible for fulfillment.

FOREIGN MARKET ENTRY
The business world of today calls for expanding sales and profits in order to achieve ever-increasing earnings. Business owners and managers must look for any available opportunities to keep their market share and expand into new markets. What happens when their local market becomes saturated?
The savvy leader is inclined to search abroad for any and all potential new markets for their product or service. New markets offer the possibility of increasing total revenue and/or decreasing the costs of goods sold, thereby increasing profits. Entering new markets may also allow a company to follow its existing customers abroad, attack competitors in their home markets, guarantee a continued supply of raw materials, acquire technology or ingenuity, diversify geographically, or satisfy the stockholders’ desire to expand.
Addiction Recovery – The Crisis of the Good
The day your family asks you to go to treatment is a hard day. In anger, through tears, or steeped in quiet resignation you agree to go, promising you’ll try. But you also secretly, privately, promise your addiction that this will just be a temporary set-back. That after treatment you can still have a little, that you don’t have to let your life unravel, that this doesn’t mean the end.
Most of us go to treatment with an idea of how we’re going to beat the system, find a loophole, or be an exception to the rule. Just that idea feels like a glimmer of hope, something to look forward to; after weeks or months of discomfort, we can go back to the way things were—only better…
Rehabilitation Treatment – Taking Aim at Anxiety
It was a last-man-standing style shoot-off. We went in with five guys, each guy had five paintballs in his gun, and we tackled the biggest course.
The stakes were high. One hit and you were out. It was more like an assassin’s game than the typical paintball free-for-all favored by most.
In the end it was a stand-off between two guys, and one of these guys was out of ammo. The guy who could still take a shot had a reputation for being the most outspoken of our patients, and certainly the biggest and most athletic…
Addiction Treatment Program – Must-Have Elements of a Continuing Care Plan
Good clinicians know that good treatment followed by good continuing care has good outcomes.
That seems like a no-brainer, doesn’t it?
One of the most important services a treatment center can provide is a rock-solid continuing care plan. Continuing care is the plan devised by your treatment center’s clinical team that addresses each patient’s specific needs, his relationship with his family, and his post-treatment environment…

Full Network Lifecycle Automation: So Easy Even a CIO Could Use It!
I’ve been around networking since the early 1990’s. My first router was a Cisco AGS running IOS 8.2(3) and had interface cables (appliques?) that sliced the back of your hands when installing them. I would use mainframe telnet emulation software to get to the CLI prompt and type away using show and config commands.
Fast forward 25 years… my hands have healed and telnet morphed to ssh but it’s still all the same process. This, despite the fact that “compute” (whatever happened to calling them “servers”?) was automated over a decade ago and switches effectively became servers with a bunch of ports. But compute automation tools — think Ansible, Puppet, and Salt — were not built for this type of work because networks are distributed systems intertwined in ways that servers will never be. And these tools were meant to handle provisioning..

Intent-Based Analytics: What is it?
In my previous blog on Intent-Based Networking (IBN) I tried to provide some clarity about our vision of what IBN is, and what it is not. We stressed the importance of automating each and every phase of a service lifecycle by leveraging a single source of truth.
Arguably, the most important phase is “closed-loop validation in the presence of change”. And at the core of it is what we call Intent-Based Analytics (IBA). Let’s define it and dig deeper into it…

The Dirty Truth about Intent Washing
Any new technology in Silicon Valley will go through a phase where defining precisely what it is can be difficult to do. New ideas need new words to describe them, to keep these ideas distinct in people’s minds. In spite of this, many people will not have heard about any given new and emerging concept.
This creates a window of time where existing vendors with existing products will invariably attempt to further blur an already blurry line in the minds of potential customers about what something new really is. We call this “washing.” For instance, “cloud-washing” is when something that really isn’t “cloud” is talked about as if it were…

The intent mechanism of the Android platform is a powerful message-passing system that allows for sharing data among components and applications. Nevertheless, it might also be used as an entry point for security attacks if incautiously employed. Attacks can be easily sent through intents to components, which can indirectly forward them to other components, and so on. In this context, this chapter proposes a model-based security testing approach to attempt to detect data vulnerabilities
