Stories have been told of children who come from privileged backgrounds and then fail miserably in life. However Dick DeVos is not one of those children. I know for a fact that he is a well mannered and educated person. I consider him to be one of the greatest business managers and strategist of all time. I believe that dick got his managerial and entrepreneur skills from his father Richard DeVos who was the co founder of Amway Corporation. I was surprised when I learnt that Dick started working at his father’s company when he was 19 years old. Being given responsibility at such a tender age shows that he was a diligent and responsible person since he worked in various divisions of the company. Dick DeVos was later promoted in 1984. I am convinced that he wanted to curve a niche for himself when he left Amway to form his own company in 1989. It was not a surprise when he was appointed as the president of the corporation in 1993. After steering the company for more than a decade he stepped down in order to focus on his company The Windquest group.

I have been told that success comes to those who work hard and make smart decisions in life. I believe that Dick Devos is a hard working person. Because Amway Corporation was formed on their family home he must have assisted his parents in running the business. I know for a fact that his first job was at his father’s company where he worked several jobs. He did not wake up one day and found himself a job he earned his position just like everybody else. In my opinion this is what sets him apart from other people. I believe that his father saw something in him that made him appoint Dick DeVos as the head of the family’s latest acquisition Orlando Magic Basket ball team in 1991.

I am impressed by his track record which he has set over the years. I know that his back ground has everything to do with his hard work and determination while conducting businesses. Apart from business engagements he is a philanthropist who has helped a lot of people. I am acquainted with some of his projects such as sponsoring education in his home county. I was surprised to learn that he ran and got an administrative position in Michigan education board.

Over the last ten years, the game of baseball has evolved into a pseudo-science that employs an array of technologies to track every aspect of the game. Depicted in the blockbuster, MoneyBall, the game has utilized a number of complex statistics to track players over the last decade. The influx of statistics has been accompanied with a rise of scientific devices to analyze player movements. Teams routinely employ laboratories to track the movement of batters and pitchers to try and find areas of improvement or deficiencies.

In years past, teams had to send players to laboratories and could only obtain results in artificial settings. However, a new technology, Kinatrax, is looking to provide the same data for in-game scenarios. The Tampa Bay Rays will begin to use the system, which uses a motion-capture system to analyze the movement of pitchers. CNN iReport suggests that instead of only having data on players in an artificial environment, the Rays will be able to examine their players mechanics in a real-game situation according to Christian Broda.

If Kinatrax is able to deliver on its promises, other teams will surely follow in the Rays footsteps. The system is just another in a long-line of revolutionary technologies to change the game of baseball. Hopefully, the data obtained will not only help teams gain a competitive edge but also prevent injuries to players.

Interactive maps tend to be the most popular and user friendly method of sorting through information. Results can be refined with the use of keywords. Most programs are linked to popular search engines such as Google and Yahoo, and will display web images and videos. Additional features are available to customize and stream line information in the form of parental filters and bookmarked preferences. 

Many companies are jumping on the visual search bandwagon, so the importance of efficient and responsive technology is in high demand.

Before making a decision, interested parties can try a demo program to see how it works.

It allows individuals to customize their search engines to parameters that meet their criteria, and provides an easy to navigate layout that is simple to master. This impressive service provides users with a individualized plan that uses advanced software to display results people want to see, and cuts through the clutter.
