As marketers look to the year ahead and consider all the tools in their arsenal, change will be coming faster than ever. India’s purchasing power has improved significantly since the turn of the millennium. People are more aware of the products they buy, and marketers are constantly trying to provide the best deals to their current and potential clients. The advertising market is expected to grow to Rs 37,000 crore in 2014 from Rs 31,877 crore. The industry notched its first double-digit growth in three years in 2013 at 11.1 per cent.

  • TV trailing behind the print at 39 per cent, Advertising on television is projected to grow 15 per cent this year despite the introduction of a regulatory cap on the maximum advertising time on channels
  • Almost 75 per cent of the total TV advertising is concentrated over just threecategories – FMCG, Telecom and Auto
  • Radio had a good year in 2013, ringing in 18 per cent growth on the back of higher inventory sales across stations. It is expected to grow 15 per cent this year, helped by phase three FM radio rollout that will attract new local advertisers.
  • The digital medium is projected to remain the fastest growing segment, although the rate of growth may slip slightly to 29.5 per cent this year from 32.4 per cent last year. Outdoor advertising is projected to grow 8.2 per cent this year with transit media.4

Top Tech Advancements Changing the Face of Education

There is no doubt that technology has become heavily integrated into our everyday lives. There is almost no escaping it. We rely on our cell phones and laptops for everything whether it be finding a recipe for dinner or researching the hottest stocks.

Education has also been heavily influenced by the integration of technology as it is fast becoming the only way to reach students. In addition to the use and promotion of several LMS, there have been several other tech advancements that have forever changed the face of education. The top 5 of these tech advancements include:

Social Media

While the use of social media in classrooms has raised a bit of alarm, the overall benefits of using social media for outweigh the detriments. By using social media platforms, such as Facebook and Twitter, in the classroom teachers have seen an increase in grades and classroom participation – even less sociable students have become more participatory. As social media becomes more prevalent in the everyday lives of students, teachers will have to integrate the platforms into the classroom if they wish to keep their students engaged.

Online Classrooms

Not everyone has the schedule that fits into the traditional university setting. For years, those that were unable to obtain a college degree through traditional means were simply left to do without. However, since the start of online degree programs, thousands have been able to pursue the degrees they want on their own time, affording them the opportunity to pursue more financially stable degrees.

Tablets

Classrooms are becoming more technologically involved than ever before. In fact, most students can’t even remember walking in to a classroom that didn’t have a computer or some piece of technology that was used on a regular basis. Tablets not only offer students the chance to browse for information in quick fashions, but they also allow them to more easily collaborate on projects and become more engaged in their learning process. They have become exceptional tools that soon every classroom will strive to have.

Smartphones

Schools have long battled the use of cell phones in school; however, the smartphone, like the tablet, have had different receptions. In addition to providing access to social media platforms which allow students to more freely interact, they also provide easy access to useful information which betters a child’s overall learning experience. They also offer numerous apps designed to help students better budget their time and create more efficient schedules to complete their school work.

Free Online Resources

Access to education online has by far been the biggest advancement in education. Like never before, students are able to access any type of information about any subject matter they choose. Wikipedia, YouTube, and numerous others forums have bettered the learning experience and allowed student access to resources necessary to supplement their own education.

As we continue to build upon our technological age, the use of the internet and different gadgets in the classroom will only become more and more prevalent. The classrooms that survive and thrive will be those that aren’t afraid to push the envelope and integrate current technologies into their curriculum

Tourism a Global Passport to Peace

Peace is the purity of mind that sees all the people around, with harmony, equality, sincerity, affection, and brotherhood, full of positivity and growth prospects.

To unite is the biggest achievement if the union is worth contributing to the noble goals. Uniting to the soul, uniting for the mission, uniting with a common vision and uniting for multiple reasons.

Tourism is one such reason that unites a person to another professionally, socially in cultural bonds, religious bonds, entertainment bonds and business bonds and so on. No two persons can find comfort talking to each other if a level of understanding, a level of respect, a level of gratitude, does not establish with each other. It is important to establish state of euphoria in the mind not only in the beginning level but till the end and why it should have an end; it should be an ongoing process for development of humanity along with tourism. Tourism helps in framing positive environment in a following manner-

– Tourism employs people

– Tourism will create necessary funds to improve the destroyed infrastructures

– By talking to tourists, locals will be able speak about their conflict experiences

– Museums can be created and help confront both tourists and locals with the taboos of conflict and atrocities

– New beautiful environments will be created for tourists, something that locals can also benefit from

– Tourists will help give local people a better understanding of our western society

– Locals will educate tourists about the conflict and build an awareness

– With tourism there is a need for education of local people and that in return will positively influence someone’s chances on the labor market.

– There are always influential people among tourists and some might come back an investor help set up other community projects (education, environment, health, etc)

When a person travel he carries not only himself to a different land but also his gestures, manners, systems, virtues, rituals to that place and when a person comes back from a place he is not just taking back himself but also the good and bad experience with him that can bring a big transformation in him altogether.The touring is no more a relaxing activity in itself it has changed and has become a great responsibility in itself.

For a developing nation tourism is the major source of foreign exchange earnings and prosperity. Tourism is simply travelling, meeting people and interacting with them. It is affecting human behaviour which could lead to positive and negative impact on host and guest countries.
