NEA launches business analytics tool

Danessa Rivera (The Philippine Star) – June 6, 2021 – 12:00am

MANILA, Philippines — State-run National Electrification Administration (NEA) has launched a business intelligence and analytics tool to improve operational efficiency, technical proficiency and business productivity of electric cooperatives (ECs).

NEA administrator Edgardo Masongsong said the NEA Business Intelligence Technology (NEA-BIT) platform went live last May 26.

“At NEA, we believe that having the appropriate business intelligence tool to arm the ECs with insights and data-rich performance trends, will set a course to sustainability and success for our partnership,” he said.

The platform allows less paper works, less courier services, less physical interaction, which is very timely in this time of pandemic.

“However, let me remind one and all that electronic submissions to the NEA BIT portal will be strengthened by an affidavit to be signed by the EC general manager and NEA BIT focal person, that the documents submitted

14 Years Ago, Steve Jobs Sent the Most Important Email in the History of Business

Apple’s trial with Epic has been over for almost two weeks, but that doesn’t mean we aren’t still learning interesting things about the world’s most valuable company. Largely, that’s because of the volume of evidence that has made publicly available through testimony and documents. 

One particularly interesting example is an email exchange from 2007 between Steve Jobs, then the CEO of Apple, and Bertrand Serlet, the company’s SVP of software engineering. It reveals a conversation about the things Apple needed to do to allow third-party apps on the iPhone. 

Until that point, the iPhone ran only 16 apps pre-installed on every device. Jobs had famously told developers that if they wanted to create apps for the iPhone, they could make web apps that ran in Safari. 

“And guess what?” Jobs said. “There’s no SDK that you need! You’ve got everything you need if you know how to write apps using

Rainsville City Council approves ordinance to refinance Northeast Alabama Agri-Business Center

RAINSVILLE, Ala. (WAFF) – Rainsville city leaders are hoping to save taxpayer dollars and make improvements to one of the city’s largest facilities.

The Northeast Alabama Agri-Business Center attracts around 100,000 people to Rainsville every year.

The facility is built to handle rodeos, job fairs and most recently, COVID testing.

Rainsville Mayor Roger Lingerfelt said refinancing the building will help cut down on some of the city’s debt.

“It put the loan on the city, but it doesn’t show up on our debt rating. So, with that, it gave us the opportunity to actually come in as an A rating if we were going to be below that it would be directly on the Agri center but with it directly on the city we came in as an A rating and instead of saving $420,000 it saved us $754,000 over 29 years,” said Mayor Lingerfelt.

Lingerfelt said the Public Building
