  1. I skimmed through it, I think that I am more surprised than anything about the application of Microsoft Sway. It is not an everyday thing for me, not sure if its just because of the industry but I do not see it often used like this.
  2. As a marketing major I was just checking in on the community and what our brand really is. I was recently on Halowaypoint.com where I had the awesome experience of watching @Shawn4Japan highjack a recruitment post. Whatever little engagement on Halo Waypoint there is to other platforms like Reddit or Twitter it is always exciting to see our name. But our name doesn't belong to us like Navcom or other gaming communities brand identity. I have to ask everyone again exactly what we're doing, what is our name if ONI isn't owned by us? A brand is a name, term, design, symbol or any other feature that identifies one seller's good or service as distinct from those of other sellers. Brands are used in business, marketing, and advertising for recognition and, importantly, to create and store value as brand equity for the object identified, to the benefit of the brand's customers, its owners and shareholders. Name brands are sometimes distinguished from generic or store brands. So we recognize that ONI is a narration of the Office of Naval Intelligence in the Halo games, we provide a service to people as a role playing forum and organized clan. We offer a set value of fun proportional to the commitment made into the community. But is this our brand? ONI belongs to us but at the same time many people will disagree to ask what iteration, leadership or distinctions do we have in the community of a dozen others. If this is something we make up and it does not belong to anyone else, how is it ours to own and how do we stop people from creating their own ONI clans? In marketing, brand management begins with an analysis on how a brand is currently perceived in the market, proceeds to planning how the brand should be perceived if it is to achieve its objectives and continues with ensuring that the brand is perceived as planned and secures its objectives. Developing a good relationship with target markets is essential for brand management. ONI has a reputation in the games and canon storyline of having ill-intent or malicious overall. For the sake of humanity willing to do the absolute worst things. With the Halo community this is known, it has of course translated to us for so many users and this can be found in our social media accounts have comments that are lore oriented; from the perspective of the fictional universe but otherwise out of character response to current dialogue. Other leaders that have decided to take the name ONI look to us, copy us in what they can exercise and develop. With other groups simultaneously calling themselves ONI how will we manage our brand without good Public Relations? Public relations (PR) is the practice of deliberately managing the release and spread of information between an individual or an organization (such as a business, government agency, or a nonprofit organization) and the public in order to affect the public perception. Public relations (PR) and publicity differ in that PR is controlled internally, whereas publicity is not controlled and contributed by external parties. I'm not clear on the current policy. These are people recruiting for their own group, who belittle ours using fabricated game history and stories. I am not expecting an active discussion as I know this was mentioned a few times before in my tenure, I just need the current administrations voice on this in a public forum. @ADM S Osman prepare your coffee.
  3. Hey this is great to hear, I'm glad you communicated it like that. As a "bridge" to connect the people divided in technologies to choose from. Excited to see what giveaways you might be doing here.
  4. Where/who do I go to for more assignments? My role and team its kind of mundane to make Field Reports and After Action Reports.

      Been a while Admiral, everything okay? 

  5. I realized that some of these articles taken from that site don't really have a purpose outside of their paid system @Shawn4Japan
  6. So what is everyone playing here? Discord seems we are all over the place.
  7. The way I see it, as a transhumanist, most people simply haven't being doing enough to accelerate the arrival of vital technologies such as true artificial intelligence and biological immortality. They may have fulfilling lives, but their goals are, from my point of view , pathetic have a family get some wealth and die of aging. They escape the reality of death through the delusions that arise from the promises found in ancient religious texts. Do I care? Well I want to gain all possible information, I want unlimited resources, absolute security, immortality, in essence godhood. I wouldn't want to interfere with others lives, but I do not want them to interfere with my life, my acquisition of information and resources nor my use of resources(nor my living creations). The problem is that others intend to have me submit to their laws, that is fine as it pertains to my interactions with their society, but once I'm fully self sufficient these laws have no justification to govern me over my own domain... and once I've enough resources they won't be able to apply to me, and any attempt to apply them to me could result in severe consequences for the would be enforcers.
  8. 140 something articles, I guess I really am a forum person. 

  9. This might help you and your title washed issue. 



    Good luck.

  10. If you already have a resume, why is it important to have a professional bio? While a resume is an absolute essential, a bio complements it by giving a clearer picture of your background, expertise, personal brand, and who you are as a professional. Bios are used for networking, promotional materials, personal websites, and more. LHH recommends C-suite candidates, entrepreneurs, and consultants have a well-crafted professional biography. Biographies can be used for networking with people, introducing your business idea or giving background about your experience and expertise. It helps craft your professional brand. The Biography can not replace the resume. Your biography should: Be succinct – no longer than one page. Tell the story of your work history and accomplishments. Be written in 3rd person. Read on to learn how to structure and develop your professional bio. Bio Structure Contact information Name, Phone number, Email and LinkedIn URL; oftentimes a picture is included Headline Two to three words that define who you are professionally: Your brand. Three summary paragraphs: Paragraph 1: Work history or experience most relevant to your next endeavor This paragraph should summarize the parts of your background that are most relevant to your intended audience. It may or may not be your most recent experience – think of it as an opportunity to cherry pick the accomplishments and work experience you’re most proud of and relate to what you want to do next. Example: J. Harrington Burns was most recently Senior Vice President, Corporate Communications at Genworth Financial, a position he held for eight years. At Genworth, he directed all internal and external communications activities for this $400 million provider of financial services, a global business unit of Sun Life of Canada. Earlier in his career, Burns gained extensive experience in sales, marketing, and corporate communications with Johnson & Johnson, Unilever, and the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey, and in advertising and public relations with BBDO, J. Walter Thompson, and DDB/Needham. Paragraph 2: Relevant education and training In the second paragraph, summarize your relevant education and training. Example: Burns holds a bachelor’s degree from Fordham University, and an M. B. A., with distinction, from New York University. He has completed additional studies at the New School, and Columbia and Cornell universities. He has lectured on strategic planning and corporate communications as part of N.Y.U.’s Urban Business Coalition Program, a pro bono outreach program for minority business owners. Paragraph 3: Professional associations, community involvement, and volunteer interests. The third paragraph summarizes your professional association and volunteer interests. Example: Burns is a member of several professional organizations, including the American Marketing Association and the International Association of Business Communicators (IABC). He is past president of the IABC’s North Jersey Chapter. Harry has also served on the boards of the Bergen County (NJ) Chapter of the American Heart Association, the Northern New Jersey Maternal and Child Health Consortium, and the New Jersey Botanical Garden. He is active with the Fordham Club of Northern New Jersey, and serves as a volunteer for WBGO, the Newark-based jazz, blues, and rhythm & blues public radio station. The best part about developing your bio is that you can use your resume as a starting point. Draw from that content to create a compelling narrative that tells the story you want to tell. While your resume is a great snapshot of your career and accomplishments, a strong professional bio will help fill in the gaps for your reader.
  11. If you’ve never worked with a financial planner, here are some ideas to set your expectations and give you a sense of the process. Set up a meeting and run the numbers for several scenarios, including what your finances might look like if you accept Social Security at the youngest possible age or wait until you are old enough to collect the maximum. In addition to your financial information, go to that meeting with a plan for your life. Your first consideration should be to ensure that you have enough income for day-to-day expenses. Then, you must consider the effects of inflation. Next, the impact of possible long-term medical care needs to be considered, both for you and your spouse or partner. Once a budget is developed, there is no better test than to try living on it for a couple of months to determine how the budget feels and performs in reality. Here are 10 tips to think about as you look for a financial planner. Decide what services you need: Do you want someone to analyze your assets and liabilities, determine what your monthly income will be when you retire, and prepare a household budget for you to live within those means? Are tax and estate planning your primary concerns? Do you have enough— and the right kinds of—insurance? Or are you most interested in ongoing investment planning and advice? Get referrals: Be cautious about using advisors who charge no fee; they live on commissions earned by selling financial products. Both the Institute of Certified Planners and the National Association of Financial Advisers can help you find a fee-only planner in your area. Some employers offer access to investment advisors as part of their benefits package. Otherwise, ask your accountant, family members, friends and co-workers for recommendations. Attend financial planning seminars: Whether offered by local nonprofit organizations or financial firms overtly seeking new clients, these free seminars typically provide useful planning information and allow you to size up the presenters as potential financial advisors. Most presenters are hoping to sell you something later, so you should determine exactly what that is before deciding to meet privately with them. Gather basic information about recommended advisors and their firms: Find out how many years of experience the advisor has and ask about licenses and/or professional accreditations. Is the firm an independent agency with truly objective advisors, or is it allied in any way with a larger organization involved in selling investment instruments? Interview your top choices: Set up in-person meetings with one or more advisors to see how comfortable you would feel having them handle your financial planning, on the basis of both professional capabilities and personal chemistry. Some questions to ask: How many individual clients do you have and what do you typically do for them? How are you compensated? On a fee basis or with commissions on what you buy and sell for me? Exactly what services will I receive for those fees or commissions? In what investment areas do you specialize? Where do you direct your clients for services outside those areas of expertise? Check references: After you have selected an advisor, ask for the names and phone numbers of three or four clients who would be willing to provide references. Then follow up with calls to find out what they perceive to be the advisor's strengths and weaknesses, if any. Communicate your expectations: While you may have described your needs during the first interview with your advisor, it is important that you clearly convey your short- and long-term goals and your personal tolerance for financial risk-taking as you go along. Inform your advisor of any major changes: Changes in income or marital status, the sale or purchase of a home and newly acquired dependents—from aging parents to returning children or grandchildren—are among the events your advisor needs to know about to maintain the viability of your financial plan. Organize your statements, confirmations and correspondence: Keeping all these papers and communications in one place makes it easy for you to keep track of your investments and make changes as necessary. Stay actively involved in the planning: Meet with your advisor at least once a year to review your investment plan and make sure it is on track with your goals. And trust your instincts to avoid investment recommendations you do not understand or are uncomfortable about; it's your money at stake.
