Standing out on shelves is vital for brands to appeal to consumers, so getting design and packaging spot on is crucial. Luckily, many producers are excelling in this arena, as our competition shows.

They say the first taste is with the eyes, meaning appearance is everything if you want to stand out in today’s competitive spirits market. A bottle’s aesthetic can make or break that all‐important first sell – and with a consumer audience paying close attention to sustainability, a product’s eco‐friendly packaging is of high value.

This year’s Design & Packaging Masters took place with all the necessary physical distancing measures in place, in line with government guidelines. In London, Bryan Rodriguez, wine and spirits buyer for Harvey Nichols, joined me, Melita Kiely, editor of The Spirits Business and chair of the event, at the Novotel London Bridge. The second half of our judging team joined us virtually over

At present, 5G technology is becoming more and more mature. So 5G smartphones have gained popularity this year. In this regard, the processor has naturally become the core of major smartphone manufacturers’ ‘competition’. On December 3, the data center of Master Lu announced the new Android smartphone performance ranking list for November. The data comes from the Master Lu Android app from November 1 to November 30. The list only counts the models released during this period.

Master Lu November

Since almost no flagship models were released in November, the number one model was Samsung’s flagship business model – Samsung Galaxy W21 5G. The latter comes with a Snapdragon 865+ processor, a folding screen design, and is sold for up to $3050. As you understand, such prices discourage ordinary consumers. But this is another topic of conversation.

The second place is occupied by the OnePlus 8T Cyberpunk 2077 co-branded with CD Projekt RED.

Take stock in children. They are the future, our most valuable resource. In Alachua County we have an equity problem, an achievement gap and the graduation rate needs improvement.

The phrase came to life in 1996 when the Education Foundation of Alachua County founded its Take Stock in Children program. It has a proven track record of helping at-risk, low socioeconomic status students achieve success in a very personal way.

The 2020 class of Take Stock in Children boasted a graduation rate of 100%, and all 61 seniors received college acceptance. The program works.

Tim Miles is a great success story. He joined TSIC in 7th grade when Scherwin Henry became his mentor.

Miles is a recent Florida State University graduate with a bachelor of science degree, majoring in statistics and minoring in mathematics; he is now pursuing a business administration and master of science

Hearn Plaza during the Wake Forest University 2019 commencement.




Wake Forest University says it will open a new academic division aimed at working professionals in Charlotte.

The university announced Thursday that the School of Professional Studies will be its first new academic unit in more than 20 years. It will be led by business school dean Charles Iacovou.

In an interview Thursday, Iacovou said the new professional studies school will offer classes toward master’s degrees, certificates and other credentials as well as executive education, but not undergraduate degrees. Most students will be adults with jobs who want new or better skills to change careers or move up in their current field.

Classes will be offered online, in person and in hybrid modes that combine virtual and face-to-face instruction. The new school will be based initially at the Wake Forest University Charlotte Center in Uptown Charlotte.
