Competitiveness Award Won by Virginia Economic Development Partnership

The “Competitiveness Award” has finally been awarded to the state of Virginia, as announced by Site Selection. This award is handed over for showing immaculate excellence in the field of economic development groups and for those who do not know, this was a state level award! Truly an achievement to consider! Surely a very prestigious award that is given every year based on the Site Selection publisher Conway Data Inc’s “New Plant Database” which as we all know is the expanded new facilities. The other states that made it to the top five list were Louisiana, Texas, Tennessee and Pennsylvania.

Tennessee was named by the Chief Executive as one of the prestigious top 3 states in the entire nation when it came to developing IT business. This was its sixth annual survey held in the nation for the “Best and the Worst States for Business.” There was huge competition and just like any awards, apparently this one had over 650 CEO’s who did the job of rating all of the states that participated into three different categories all general though, living environment, workforce quality and taxation and regulation. Last year Tennessee ended up in the fifth position, and it moved 2 notches up to finish in third position. The other states that made it to top fiver were North Carolina, Texas, Nevada and Virginia.

In a bid probably to get all of its state members avid with technology the officials in Tennessee made announcements that they were to join hands with the Global Technological giants like Microsoft. The partnership will be of the public-private kind and will be thoroughly aimed at giving technological training to all Tennesseans. The program would be called “Elevate America” and Microsoft is said to work endlessly along with the Tennessee Department of Labor and Workforce Development, so that they could give away 25,875 free vouchers for training and certification in on line technology. Those who are interested, (and this is aimed especially for workers) can take the course at home or even attend the Tennessee Career Centers else the Tennessee Technology Centers.

Justin Wilson from Comptroller had suggested rightly for a thorough evaluation and this time it would be between the University of Tennessee Medical Group along with the University of Tennessee Health Science Center. The only reason for this evaluation was because of doubts that were raised with concerns to guarding of conflicts in interest, as well as to protect every tax payer who pays his/her tax regularly. This was largely because of the oversight of the Knoxville UT officials and this concerned the financial management practices that the Memphis medical school and also the staff and faculty that were reportedly on the board of directors. According to Wilson, they even demanded that the University be a little lenient and forgive the $7.5 million debt that the UT Medical Group owed and a huge contribution of this was because of the financial difficulties that the Medical Group was undergoing.

Learn How False Information Can Make You A Social Outcast On The Internet

Internet is a great way for disseminating information as you can be sure to get your audience access the information fast. However, some of the information on the Internet is not false. Some Websites may contain information which are half-truths and others total lies, cooked up by unidentified people. There are also many instances of copyrighted material being posted on the Internet without permission. The one thing about posting information on the Internet is that, the user can choose to remain anonymous or choose a nickname, making it difficult to identify who posted what information on the Internet.

Quint Kessenich posted on Twitter that Virginia had announced that they were ending the men’s and women’s lacrosse season immediately due to the tragic death of Yeardley Love, a female Lacrosse player. That information was not exactly true. Virginia Authorities were, in fact, considering canceling the season but had not reached a decision when Quint posted his tweet. This attracted a lot of comments and, overwhelmed, a large majority of people who thought the news to be true. Quint’ s Twitter account has been closed and there is no trace of him. This is just one in many cases where people put false or partially true information on the Internet. Quint’s case here may be an instance of jumping the gun, when he posted the obvious, but before the event happened. But, even then it was not right and he had to pay a price for that.

Though defining ethics for posting information on the Internet is difficult, posting false or partially true information on the social networks is unethical. Such information may create a lot of confusion in the minds of people. False information about unrest in a country for instance, could create panic, anxiety and fear in people who have relatives and loved ones in that country. This anxiety can cause people to do a lot of health problems like stress, high blood pressure and others. It can even kill!

The legal issues about information on the Internet, especially social networks like Twitter, are however more defined. A person can be sued for libel or defamation when he posts information that is untrue and seeks to speak bad of another person or organization, and that information is accessible to people other than the one about whom the information is about. Different countries and societies have their own definition and punishment for libel or defamation. It is now becoming easier to identify people who post information on the Internet. The Internet facilities are now able to detect the location of people who post information on the Internet by means of the Internet Protocol address of the computer used. Interpol and local law enforcement agencies are notified and the person may be arrested.

Every Internet user should try to ascertain the facts and figures before posting on the social networks as, these are viewed by millions of people and the information is transmitted very quickly across the world. Any information that is not right can cause a huge loss to someone who views the information and acts on the posted information. Since Twitter is being used by millions of people across the world, and seems to be the future of instant communication, important details of various activities are being posted on it each day. The individual posting the information should take the responsibility to post the correct information.
