It always stands out when a very large and successful company still takes time and resources to give back to communities in need. Qnet, a leading e-commerce company, has been donating time and money to help those in less fortunate situations. Most recently, Qnet made a public announcement of their donation of Rs. 75 Lakhs to help the victims of the Chennai flood. This announcement was made at IIFA Utsavam, an awards ceremony to recognize film talent from Southern India. It is the first festival to do just that. The donation is going directly to the Tamil Nadu Chief Minister’s Relief Fund, which will work directly with the relief victims.
Chennai is a city located in Southern India on the west coast facing the Indiana Ocean. They have been experiencing the greatest rainfall in 100 years and have suffered awful and damaging flooding as a result. Countless residents have been forced out of their homes and resources have become scarce. This donation is not the first time that Qnet has aided with the flood. In fact very recently, Qnet partnered withLions Dist. 317 F Service Foundationto bring 200 families relief kits filled with household essentials such as cooking ware, sheets and more.

Qnet’s efforts are completed through their outreach program which is known as QNET- WE CARE. QNET- WE CARE is part of their CSR initiative.

Skout has conducted a survey which has shown that according to the result, people believe that friends can be more helpful than anything else. One of the areas that friends are very helpful is when it comes to dieting. While there are a lot of articles and gadgets that talk about the latest dieting gimmick that is designed to help people melt off the pounds within a month or so, people realize that it is encouragement from close friends and family members that help them lose the unwanted pounds. For one thing, when one knows that others care about him, he’ll have more motivation to pursue his goals.
Skout itself is very innovative about its social network. The company encourages others to meet up. While other social networks do allow for friends, they are also used for marketing. This often puts a limit on how close people can get to each other. Skout moves the limits. Skout also looks for ways that it could improve its services. One very crucial trait of Skout is that it cares about its customers. It cares what they think and is really interested in helping them achieve their goals in relationships.
One thing that Skout does that is unique is that it directs users to a grid that shows pictures of other users. The grid often changes as people go on and offline. For the smartphone or mobile devices, the user can just tap the image in order to open the profile. The user could then message the person and a conversation may ensue. If they connect, then that could be the start of a friendship that is life giving. When it comes to activities on the site, they do cost points. However, it is worth it because there are various ways to gain points.
Skout’s system is powerful in that it could help people form friendships that are positive. All one has to do is to talk about his interests and goals and then he will be connected with people that have similar goals. The main thing that people need are friends that will help them get to the best of themselves. People will feel good about themselves with friends. This s because they are with friends that allow them to be who they are and change what they want without trying to change each other. Skout has proven to be one of the most revolutionary sites for relationships.
Very few South African court cases have managed to get the kind of media attention that the Oscar Pistorius case did in 2014. The case managed to create and attract a lot of controversies as well. The judge delivered a verdict that Oscar was not guilty of murder but guilty of homicide and reckless weapon handling. The defendant received a sentence of a maximum of five years and a concurrent three years suspended sentence or the separate reckless gun handling conviction.
The reason the case managed to attract a lot of media attention was precisely because of both Oscar and his late model girlfriend’s (whom he had shot dead and the reason the trial was happening) public statuses. Before the incident, the couple was the envy of many young people around the world. In February of the same year, Steenkamp (the model’s girlfriend’s name) was shot dead by Oscar in his Pretoria home. In his argument, Oscar was saying that he shot her mistaking her for an intruder. After the incident, he was arrested and formally charged with murder.
The High Court in Pretoria had also rules that only selected parts of the trial could be broadcast on television. However, it allowed the entire trial proceedings to be recorded in audio format. Only the closing and opening ceremonies, testimonies of consenting witnesses, judgement and sentencing were allowed for video recording.
