iam platform login page background

BEGIN ARTICLE PREVIEW:

Calvary’s Landry Lyddy and Green Oaks’ Keith Baker are putting up some solid passing numbers as we near the halfway point of the shortened 2020 LHSAA football season. Both have been able to battle through three games, unlike some quarterbacks in Northwest Louisiana who have missed contests due to COVID-19 issues or to a hurricane. Lyddy has thrown for 993 yards and 11 touchdowns heading into Friday’s game against Magnolia Charter, where the junior may not get to play a full four quarters. Baker, who has 849 yards and seven scores, has a tougher game with Loyola, but should get in four quarters of action against a strong Loyola defense. Huntington senior J’rell Joseph is also putting up some nice numbers with 741 yards and will face Bastrop Friday night. The Raiders’ Demajah Riley expanded his rushing lead locally with a 5-touchdown game against Loyola and now has 508 yards on the season. Twitter: @JimmyWatson6 Statistics after 3 weeks (Oct. 19)RushingDemajah Riley, Huntington, 69-508 yds.Ron’Tavious Richmond, Parkway 71-368 yds.Me’ciah Butler, Magnolia, 55-360 yds.K.

Where are the Hocus Pocus cast now? Hairdresser, TV queen and film darling

BEGIN ARTICLE PREVIEW:

With witching season upon us, the 1993 hit film Hocus Pocus is bound to scare up a new batch of fans this Halloween.Featuring a stellar lineup of ghastly witches, (Bette Midler, Kathy Najimy and Sarah Jessica Parker), the Sanderson sisters and their pursuit of eternal youth, combined with some spicy adult jokes and even a catchy music number has firmly landed this film high in the ranks of the cult classics. It’s been 27 years since this kitschy number hit the silver screen, leaving behind a legacy of now grown-up fans and some great Halloween costume inspiration. While some of the cast maintain that this was one of their favourite productions (and who can blame them) the stars then went on to pursue many other filming endeavours. But where are our favourite characters now? Winifred (Bette Midler) Acting heavyweight Bette was already a big star when the movie came out. She had already won several Emmys and boasted an impressive acting career when she assumed the lead role as Winifred. And, with her terrifying stare and spindly nails, she did not disappoint.

Everyone recognizes him for having had visionary ideas, which made momentous contributions in the field of personal computers, cell phones and music in digital format.Undoubtedly, like all great minds, it is loved and hated in equal measure.

What is Technopreneurship? What is its meaning, importance & example?

iam platform login page background

BEGIN ARTICLE PREVIEW:

In this blog, we will try to explain what technopreneurship means, its definition, examples, importance and how can you become a successful technopreneur. The term ‘technopreneurship’ is the amalgamation of the century’s most powerful two words – entrepreneurship and technology. A person who identifies a gap or opportunity in any market, industry or process, converts it into a service or product, conducts market research, estimates probable profits and earnings and creates a successful business is called an entrepreneur. The entire process of doing the same is known as entrepreneurship. By definition, technology means the hands-on and pragmatic application or use of scientific knowledge. However, in context, it usually refers to what is known as Information technology (IT) or Information and Communication Technology. As quoted by a British inventor and futurist, Sir Arthur C. Clark, “Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic.” A person who begins by brainstorming ideas that challenge the traditional systems and practices and comes up with a better, more creative and different way of doing things is a technopreneur. A technopreneur defies the present economic order by ideating a product or service that uses technological solutions to change the traditional way of doing something. Generally speaking, …
