Verizon calls out AT&T’s shady 5G strategy in new full-page ad

Verizon Vs AT&T

Verizon earlier today took out full-page ads in papers like The New York Times and The Wall Street Journal and called upon the wireless industry to be upfront with consumers about which devices are truly 5G compatible. The Verizon ad is essentially a not-too-subtle jab at AT&T which, as we reported a few weeks back, is planning to replace the LTE indicator with a 5G E symbol in markets that have support for the fastest LTE technologies. And keep in mind, AT&T doesn’t sell any 5G compatible phones at the moment.

AT&T’s move in this regard is exceptionally misleading, and Verizon wants to let everyone know that they’re only going to use a 5G designation when “new device hardware is connecting to the network using new radio technology to deliver new capabilities.”

Microsoft throws shade at the iPad, calls it a fake computer

Microsoft Surface Go

The tech world is always a tad more interesting when companies like Microsoft and Apple are willing to throw a little shade at each other. Take, for example, a new Microsoft ad for the Surface Go, which takes a few nice jabs at the iPad. The commercial begins with a girl looking at Surface Go and imploring her grandmother not to buy an iPad. The reason? It’s not a real computer.

“Grandma don’t go out and buy an iPad,” the girl sings. “It was fine when I was six but now I’m 10. My dreams are big so I need a real computer to do all of the amazing things I know I can.”

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Calls for Election Day to Become a National Holiday, Replacing Columbus Day

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, the politician who soon will become the youngest woman to serve in Congress, proposed replacing Columbus Day with a national voting holiday on Election Day.

Ocasio-Cortez’ proposal was made in that raucous battleground for U.S. politics, Twitter. The suggestion began when she tweeted a question during the weekend: “How is Columbus Day a holiday but Election Day not?”

In short order, David Martosko, U.S. political editor for Britain’s Daily Mail, weighed in to accuse Ocasio-Cortez of “angling for more vacation days.” That tweet struck many as a not-so-subtle reference to the inaccurate yet longstanding stereotype of Hispanics as lazy. Martosko’s tweet was quickly ratioed, with more than three comments for every retweet as of Monday afternoon, and with most of those comments excoriating Martosko.

For her part, Ocasio-Cortez responded with the suggestion to swap out Columbus Day for an Election Day holiday.

Since she defeated a ten-term incumbent during a June primary race in New York’s 14th district, Ocasio-Cortez has become something of a lightning rod for far-right media, including a now-deleted tweet that seemed to obsess over her clothing choices.

Other politicians such as Bernie Sanders have called for making Election Day a holiday. Although voter turnout in 2018 was the highest for a mid-term election in a century, some feel the 49% turnout figure is still low given that many people don’t take time off for work to vote.

Others are opposed to the practice, arguing that, while a voting holiday might give many white-collar workers and students a day off, people working in restaurants, hotels, and retail stores will still need to work that day. In some states, early voting and mail-in ballots are alternatives for those who need to work on Election Day.

In recent decades, some people have advocated replacing Columbus Day with a different national holiday, such as Indigenous Peoples’ Day.

Seth Meyers Calls Out Trump After Mail Bombs: ‘The President’s Words Matter’

NBC

On Wednesday, CNN’s building had to be evacuated in New York after a pipe bomb addressed to former CIA chief John Brennan (in reality, an MSNBC contributor) and the news network was found in the mail.

Brennan, an outspoken critic of President Trump, was one of several targets of the president’s ire to receive an explosive device in the mail—including CNN, Bill and Hillary Clinton, Barack and Michelle Obama, former attorney general Eric Holder, Rep. Maxine Waters, Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, and Dem megadonor George Soros. (Trump’s media allies, rather predictably, pushed insane conspiracy theories about this being a liberal plot—to bomb themselves—ahead of the midterms.)

“Now, we obviously don’t know yet who sent these bombs, and it’s important to let law enforcement conduct an investigation,” said Seth Meyers on Wednesday’s Late Night. “In fact, the only thing we do know so far is that whoever did this is not only a horrible person, but a moron—because they tried to list the address of Florida congresswoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz as the return address, but on the envelope they spelled it ‘Florids.’ Well, that narrows it down to anyone who still doesn’t have spellcheck. What did they write that with, Microsoft Word 87? Even Clippy would have caught that!”

How to Convert Calls Into Actual Appointments

When you receive a business call from a potential client, it can be difficult to know exactly what to say. Telephone jitters are a legitimate worry for many pros who are otherwise confident in their sales skills—there is too much at stake during that first phone call to get anything wrong. Thankfully, we have a few tricks up our sleeve to help make sure you are always prepared for an unexpected call. Here are some of the best ways to convert business calls into actual appointments.

A young woman is looking at blueprints and talking on the phone. She is working at a construction site. Horizontally framed shot.

Know your brand

Confidence is key when it comes to selling your business to new clients, so a poised and self-assured conversational style will start things off on the right foot. For a business owner, coming across as confident is simple if you know your brand inside and out. Remember who you are, what you represent, and why your services are the best around.

Rehearse the script

While you can never be sure when a homeowner will call, you can practice potential conversations ahead of time to be as prepared as possible. Consider the types of questions a caller may have about your business and know what your answers will be. While it might seem silly, rehearsing calls out loud with friends or colleagues can significantly help you to boost your confidence levels on the phone and come across as knowledgeable and passionate about your brand.

Keep FAQs handy

When you receive a random call from a potential client, they will most likely want to ask questions about your business and address a variety of concerns. Although they can—and will—ask anything, you can usually anticipate some of their queries ahead of time.  Most often, potential clients will want to know about:

  • Your services
  • Your pricing structure
  • Your qualifications
  • Any available references you may have

If you have this information on hand, you can easily refer to your facts and figures when homeowners call out of the blue and impress them with quick, succinct answers.

Anticipate a caller’s needs

When you’re talking to homeowners, it’s imperative to know what stage they’re at in their sales cycle. For example, a homeowner who is curious about the cost of a window replacement or which roof material type is best for their warm-weather home is most likely seeking information that they’ll use in their ‘decision’ phase. On the other hand, a homeowner who has a broken HVAC unit or roof damage from a recent storm is going to have much more urgent needs and will, therefore, be ready to make an appointment with you as soon as possible.

Be approachable

Unexpected business calls can often catch you off guard. Callers often have an uncanny ability to call at inopportune and busy times, but it is essential that you remain professional and approachable even if the timing isn’t perfect. A friendly, welcoming tone of voice and a genuine interest in callers’ needs will be more likely to lead to a follow-up appointment than a curt, sharp conversation that implies you have better things to do with your time.

Suggest a face-to-face meeting

This final step may seem obvious, but extending an official invitation to a client meeting is sometimes the only way to secure an appointment with potential clients. After you’ve answered all their questions and promoted your business the best you can, a face-to-face meeting can seal the deal for a new lead. Even the most confident caller may feel nervous about asking for a meeting, so a straightforward approach on your end will put them at ease and give you a chance to make a lasting and positive first impression in person.

Securing new leads over the phone is a tricky business that requires patience and practice. However, by following these simple guidelines you can put your best foot forward and impress callers with your business acumen, confidence, and knowledge. Before you know it, you’ll be looking forward to these kinds of calls and will be able to answer the phone with ease every time.

Omarosa Calls Out Bill Maher for Dropping the N-Word

If Bill Maher had some trouble besting Steve Bannon in a political debate last week, he was faced with a less formidable opponent this Friday night in Omarosa Manigault-Newman.

The author of Unhinged was the top of the show guest on Real Time and from the moment she sat down across from Maher, she seemed more at ease than she has been in previous interviews. For the most part, it was a surprisingly congenial interview.

Omarosa laughed as Maher suggested that “the swamp has moved into the White House” with Donald Trump. She was flattered as the host called her a “one-name star” like Cher. But things took a turn when Maher brought up one of her most infamous comments about the president during the 2016 campaign.

Latest ‘South Park’ Episode Calls for the Cancellation of ‘The Simpsons’

South Park called out The Simpsons on its latest episode, describing it as a series with “bigotry and hate” before closing with a #CancelTheSimpsons hashtag. The episode featured the acclaimed Mr. Hankey character on trial defending his offensive tweets, mocking the Brett Kavanaugh case.

After blaming the tweets on Ambien similarly to Roseanne Barr’s statements earlier this year following the cancellation of her show, the Christmas Poo is sentenced to leave town. He’s sent somewhere “that accepts racist, awful beings like him,” with people who “don’t care about bigotry and hate,” and that place ends up being The Simpsons‘ Springfield.

He’s welcomed by Apu speaking in a stereotypical voice, a callback to a documentary about the show and the character called The Problem With Apu, which calls out the show’s crude depiction of his nationality. Even the episode’s name “The Problem With A Poo,” is a reference to the doc. Simpsons‘ showrunner Al Jean spoke to THR about the ending, stating he knows it was all in good fun and a show of respect to the series.

“It’s actually in favor of us saying people are too critical,” Jean stated. “Hari Kondabalu [the writer/star of the documentary] tweeted he thought they agreed with him but pulled the comments showing he was wrong. All season the show has had a #cancelsouthpark hashtag so my response (which I tweeted) is: #pleasedontcancelsouthpark.”

Check out both tweets below and share your thoughts in the comment section.
