Case Study: The World Business Forum (WBF)

Being held for the first time in Australia in May 2014, the World Business Forum offered business leaders the opportunity to hear influential minds and legendary CEOs discuss global issues and trends.

The Star Event Centre was selected to be the venue for the inaugural Australian conference, hosting the largest collection of senior executives for an event of its type. The impressive lineup of speakers included the former Director of Marketing of Facebook, Randi Zuckerberg, The Hon. John Howard and Professor Michael Porter of the Harvard Business School.

The Event Centre was at full capacity, set theatre style for the 1,750 attendees plus all four suites on level 5 were in action for VIPs and corporate sponsors. Breakout spaces in the foyer of the Event Centre and on Sky Terrace featured eight sponsor stands of varying sizes and food stations showcasing Australia’s freshest cuisine like QLD Spanner Crab meat and avocado brioche.

Speakers, VIPs and sponsors enjoyed a three course lunch in The Attic in the Event Centre, and at Bistro 80, whilst other guests ventured throughout the property to dine and hold meetings at signature restaurants including Balla. BLACK by ezard and Sokyo and in The Star’s own food court.

Volunteers from a hotel management school were recruited to direct guests internally and externally to the property assisting with traffic flow.

Aware that time is an executive’s most precious commodity, The Star meticulously planned the two-day event for all guests, from the speedy registration process onsite and clear signage, to the prompt catering at all tea breaks and flawless VIP management; a seamless and memorable experience was had by all.

In addition, custom menus were implemented across the property ensuring World Business Forum attendees’ lunch breaks were well timed and afternoon sessions could get underway on schedule.

Impressing all guests, Sydney put on an absolutely stunning couple of days of weather which allowed guests to utilise Sky Terrace for all morning and afternoon tea breaks, avoiding the need for well-established wet weather plans.

The 2014 conference offered accommodation across The Star’s two hotels to delegates. Responding to attendees’ desire to stay on site, for the 2015 conference, The Star has partnered with their client offering a discount code for accommodation at both The Darling and Astral Towers and Residences.

The 2014 World Business Forum was a major success, and has chosen to hold the 2015 conference at the same venue The Star for the second consecutive year, 27 – 28 May 2015.

The 2015 conference was another outstanding event that featured a stellar line up of speakers including Lynda Gratton, Professor at the London Business School, Steve Wozniak, the pioneer who co-founded Apple and Ben Bernanke, two-term Chairman of the Federal Reserve System.

The launch of the World Business Forum Sydney last year was a huge success with 2173 senior-level executives in attendance Australia s largest business management event.

The Star were instrumental in the planning and delivery of the Forum to ensure we exceeded expectations for both executives and sponsors. This was definitely achieved, as 100% of all executives surveyed mentioned that they would return again.

We look forward to working with the team at The Star again on the World Business Forum Sydney 2015 which will be held on 27th 28th May.

OHosti Powerful Features!

Free Unlimited Web Hosting Features :

We also provide SSH access on all Business Hosting plans and have enabled WP-CLI for easy WordPress management.

Why is Our Free VPS Hosting different than Shared and Dedicated?

With our OHosti VPS, you get an entire server. This is optimal for people that have very high traffic to their websites or need to setup their server in a very specific way. Not everyone needs to have a fully dedicated web server however. If you’re just getting started with your website, you can save quite a bit of money if you get a free small portion of the server. Shared hosting is when you share a portion of the server with other users rather than rent an entire server to yourself. If you are considering a dedicated server and are unsure if it is right for you, perhaps you will need to get Free VPS Hosting.

What is our free reseller hosting included?

Everything you need to get started is included in our Reseller packages for a single, no price (free) :

Free cPanel:
Unlike other hosting companies, we never charge you or your clients a fee to manage the content and setup of their websites. cPanel makes that easy.

Free Domains Resales:
Not only can you sell web hosting, our Reseller Program also gives you the ability to sell domain names.

IMAP, POP, SMTP Email:
We offer a variety of email protocols, meaning your clients can check emails anywhere, on any device, easily.

Free Backups and Installers:
We include the Softaculous auto-installer totally Free, so you and your clients can set up websites at the click of a button, and we back your sites up every 24-36 hours, automatically.

Frequently Asked Questions?

Why is it all free on OHosti? How do you earn?

We’ve been providing leading free cPanel hosting services with No Ads. All this is made possible by our Paid Dedicated Servers services, including upgrades for those who need more room for growth, as well as donations from our community of users.

How long will your hosting be free?

Forever! We have provided Paid Servers services since 2010 and we have been in free hosting business since 2009.

What are your guarantees?

1. Our hosting will always be 100% free!

2. We own all our servers and locate them in high quality data centers, so no one can shut down or reload any server with your data.

3. We utilise dedicated connections to ensure we can provide enough bandwidth for all our users.

Free Domain Name Privacy

Did you know that whenever a domain name is registered, The Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) requires your personal information be published in the WHOIS database? This includes your mailing address, phone number and email address!

With Domain Privacy Protection from OHosti Hosting we will make our information available to the public instead of yours. This can help protect you from potential spammers, telemarketers and even identity thieves. This wouldn’t cost you any thing only $0.00 annually! (Fully Free). Otherwise we would have to use the information we currently have on file for your account.

Your name will remain as the registrant contact so that you retain complete ownership of the domain.

You can register a free .com. net. org. tk. ml. ga. cf. gq (including Special Domains).

Domain Privacy Protection is available with all hosting accounts, including shared hosting, vps hosting, and our dedicated servers.

University Business Forum

It was a great honor and pleasure for us to welcome you to the University Business Forum to Vienna on February 25-26, 2016 !

The event was a joint effort of the European Commission, the Austrian Federal Economic Chamber and the Austrian Federal Ministry of Science, Research and Economy.

This two-day forum brought together a diverse range of representatives from business, public authorities and universities. Around 520 participants from all over Europe jointly developed ideas and formed creative collaborations.

During the upcoming Forum opinion leaders shared with us latest developments and recent innovations.

You had been inspired by high-profile speakers as:

  • Harald Mahrer, State Secretary of the Federal Ministry of Science, Research and Economy
  • Christoph Leitl, President of the Austrian Federal Economic Chamber
  • Alexa Wesner, US Ambassador to Austria
  • Jörg Dräger, Executive Director of the Centre for Higher Education and Board member of the Bertelsmann foundation
  • Paul Rübig, Member of the European Parliament
  • Werner Wutscher, Founder and CEO of New Venture Scouting, Austria

You had been activated by lively exchange at interactive breakout sessions, informal networking slots and debates about:

  • How can cooperation between business and universities be structured to best drive innovation? How can we scale up models such as “dual studies”?
  • How can an entrepreneurial mind-set among students, teachers and researchers be encouraged? How can science, business and policy support start-up creation?
  • How can a university operate in an entrepreneurial way? What is the role for universities when it comes to lifelong learning, knowledge exchange and regional growth?

Download pictures, power point presentations, the report and the conference programme.

We relyed on the most meaningful participation of many colleagues from all over Europe in order to make our forum a milestone in University-Business-Congress history. The Forum took place in Vienna, one of the most beautiful cities not only in Europe but in the entire world.

Micro RC Cars – Mini MicroSizers, Xmods, Tomy Bit Char-G, ZipZaps, Epoch Indoor Racers,

#

Welcome to The Micro RC Resource Center

Choosing the best micro or mini remote control car.

When people ask me which car is best, there really isn’t a good answer because each micro remote controlled car has its own strengths and weaknesses.

With that said, I’m going to describe the cars in my radio control car collection and point out the stengths and weaknesses so you can decide which one is best for you.

Hobbico MicroSizers (1:64 Scale – Approx 2 in Length)
Also known as Tomy Bit Char-G in Japan.
Strengths
. Inexpensive, Durable, Lots of Mods, Small Size
Weaknesses. Limited Range, Short Driving Time, No Proporational Steering or Speed, Only 4 Available Frequencies

I think I’ll always have a soft spot for the Tomy Bit Char-G remote control car. There’s something about the MicroSizers cars that are just fun. The compact size (about 2 ) allows you to set up races in a very small area such as your kitchen floor. Its simplicity is also part of its charm. The car and controller can fit in the palm of your hand and with just a couple AA batteries and a smooth surface, you’re ready to go.

Although the Tomy Bit CharG cars don’t have proportional steering or speed, I’ve always been happy with how the Bit Char-G cars handle. I wish the Bit Char-G cars would drive for longer than 4 minutes, but that’s still enough time for a good race. The standard controllers aren’t as sophisticated as the ones for the DigiQ or Epoch Indoor Racer, but they’re adequete. The special booster controllers that can be purchased separtely aren’t that much more sophisticated and the range is even worse than the regular controller. However, they do have a booster button that allows you to drive at a faster speed along with a switch that allows you to drive any of the four available frequencies from the same controller. Anyone that has fun with a Hobbico MicroSizer, will want to look into the faster motors that can be purchased (available motors: 1.0, 2.0, 2.2, 2.6, 3.0 and 3.8).

Radio Shack also sells a version of this car called a ZipZap. You can read more about Zip Zaps at the forum.

MysticKnight’s Buying Advice:
Everyone should own at least one Bit Char-G remote control car (MicroSizer) with a 2.2 motor or higher. For around $30, you can’t go wrong. If you enjoy using the car and decide to buy others, the special controller is worth looking into especially if you’re going to be racing other people.

Epoch Indoor Racers (1:43 Scale – Approx 4 in Length)
Strengths. Proportional Steering and Speed, Realistic Body Designs

Weaknesses. Needs A Relatively Large Area for Racing, More Expensive, Poorly Designed Controller, Limited Mods and After Market Parts

The Epoch Indoor Racer is a bit larger (about 4 ) than most other micro remote controlled cars. The speed and responsiveness of this car makes it very fun to drivefor racers that don’t mind paying a little more for a micro remote controlled car.

At the moment there two types of Epoch Indoor Racers, the spec 1 and the spec 2. The controllers for both are exactly the same but the spec 2 car has smaller, more realistic wheel wells, modified suspension and improved electronics.

The Epoch Indoor Racer controller is not made very well and there’s not much of an after-market selection of parts and supplies. In contrast, the controller that comes with the Mini Z is outstanding, there are many after-market products and it’s much faster than an Epoch Indoor Racer.

MysticKnight’s Buying Advice:
Buy the Hobbico MicroSizer first and if you think it’s a blast and you’re ready to move up to real micro RC racing, consider the Mini Z (described below) instead of the Epoch Indoor Racer.

Kyosho Mini Z Street Racers (1:28 Scale – Approx 6 in Length)
More like a real racecar than the smaller cars, Mini Z bodies have amazing detail and cool parts are extremely easy to find. The Mini Z is probably the most popular of the small R/C cars because all electronics are pre-installed and there are many clubs world-wide.

Kyosho Mini Z Formula 1 (1:28 Scale – Approx 6 in Length)
Formula 1 cars are now available with the same attention to detail as the original Kyosho Mini Z Street Racers.

HPI Micro RS4 (1:18 Scale – Approx 9 in Length)
This car is bigger and similar to the real 1:10 electric cars. Radio and electronics have to be purchased separately and this car tends to be more expensive but it’s the best small R/C car out there in my opinion.

PITZON’s Buying Advice:
I can speak for those of us who took the step from racing bigger 1:10 electric cars quite seriously and spending insane amounts of money on the larger cars. Once we bought the Mini-Z and HPI Micro RS4 cars, all of us sold our big cars and race nothing but small R/C cars now.

Takara Digi Q (1:66 Scale – Just Under 2 in Length)
Strengths. Durable, Very Small, Good Quality Controller, Proportional Steering, Long Driving Time
Weaknesses. Doesn’t Handle Well, Slow in Corners, Cartoon Looking Bodies

Although the Takara Digi-Q is smaller, faster and drives longer on a charge (15 minutes) than the Bit Char-G and the controller is the best quality out of all the controllers (including the more expensive Epoch Indoor Racers), I’ve never really liked the DigiQ cars.

The Digi Q uses 2 motors to control speed AND steering. When you want to go right, the right motor slows down to make the car go right which means it goes slower in corners. The car is less than 2 long and I think that contributes to how squirly it feels. Instead of using a frequency to transmit to the car, the Digi Q controllers send their signals via Infrared. You can switch the controller to one of 4 settings to match the car you’re racing, but the car itself can’t be switched.

The controller feels solid in your hand and you can electronically switch between high and low speeds. An optional infrared booster is available to get better range (although the range seems pretty good without it). The DigiQ car and controller costs about $55.

MysticKnight’s Buying Advice:
Personally, I would buy the Tomy Bit Char-G instead of the Takara Digi Q. Even though the Bit Char-G is slower, it’s more fun to drive because of how it handles.

There are several other brands of micro remote control cars that are inexpensive copies of the Tomy Bit Char-G and Takara DigiQ cars. Those cars are called clones and some of them are worth looking into. More information about all the mini radio controlled cars mentioned here and other vehicles such as micro remote control helicopters, mini RC planes, miniature R/C boats, micro remote control tanks and more can be found at the mini RC cars forum.

Internet Explorer Collection Free Download and Reviews #files, #forum

Browse Fileforum

Internet Explorer Collection 1.7.2.1

Windows (All) / Freeware / 214,712 downloads

Internet Explorer is a browser developed by Microsoft. Windows Internet Explorer (formerly Microsoft Internet Explorer) is based on the Trident render engine.

Internet Explorer Collection contains multiple IE versions, which are standalone so they can be used at the same time. This is useful for web developers. Conditional Comments are important for web developers, because they use them to target specific versions of Internet Explorer. In the standalone versions Conditional Comments work exactly the same as in the native versions. The original version number is shown correcty in the User Agent string.

Reviews of Internet Explorer Collection

Reviewing 1.7.2.1 (May 6, 2014)

Strongly advise against using this browser since the latest version found a problem with the protection of personal data

Reviewing 1.7.1.1 (Oct 7, 2011)

I already have multiple IE installed for versions up to IE6. I could not get IE 7 standalone to work because of a bug with the form input fields- so I downloaded this one just for IE7-
Worked perfectly!
I didn’t install any of the other IE’s, but have no doubt that they wouldn’t work as well. Make sure you guys check the compatibility chart to see if your version of Windows is compatible with the browser you want to test
http://utilu.com/IECollection /

Reviewing 1.7.1.1 (Sep 15, 2011)

Contains a trojan.

Reviewing 1.7.1.1 (Sep 7, 2011)

Installed on Windows 7, and my experience is:
– It doesn’t install IE9 (?).
– The machine already had IE8 installed, so it didn’t install that.
– Can’t get IE7 on Win7, yeah, ok, I get that.
– So it installed two versions of IE6, neither of which work, they just crash on launch. I tried running them as Administrator, no luck.

So I started out with a machine with IE8. And now I have a machine that still has IE8, but also two broken installs of IE6.

tldr; Don’t bother.

Reviewing 1.7.1.1 (Aug 26, 2011)

Nice idea but in my opinion create a pack with only the last 3 IEs. Thats all any user would really care about.

Case Study: The World Business Forum (WBF)

Being held for the first time in Australia in May 2014, the World Business Forum offered business leaders the opportunity to hear influential minds and legendary CEOs discuss global issues and trends.

The Star Event Centre was selected to be the venue for the inaugural Australian conference, hosting the largest collection of senior executives for an event of its type. The impressive lineup of speakers included the former Director of Marketing of Facebook, Randi Zuckerberg, The Hon. John Howard and Professor Michael Porter of the Harvard Business School.

The Event Centre was at full capacity, set theatre style for the 1,750 attendees plus all four suites on level 5 were in action for VIPs and corporate sponsors. Breakout spaces in the foyer of the Event Centre and on Sky Terrace featured eight sponsor stands of varying sizes and food stations showcasing Australia’s freshest cuisine like QLD Spanner Crab meat and avocado brioche.

Speakers, VIPs and sponsors enjoyed a three course lunch in The Attic in the Event Centre, and at Bistro 80, whilst other guests ventured throughout the property to dine and hold meetings at signature restaurants including Balla. BLACK by ezard and Sokyo and in The Star’s own food court.

Volunteers from a hotel management school were recruited to direct guests internally and externally to the property assisting with traffic flow.

Aware that time is an executive’s most precious commodity, The Star meticulously planned the two-day event for all guests, from the speedy registration process onsite and clear signage, to the prompt catering at all tea breaks and flawless VIP management; a seamless and memorable experience was had by all.

In addition, custom menus were implemented across the property ensuring World Business Forum attendees’ lunch breaks were well timed and afternoon sessions could get underway on schedule.

Impressing all guests, Sydney put on an absolutely stunning couple of days of weather which allowed guests to utilise Sky Terrace for all morning and afternoon tea breaks, avoiding the need for well-established wet weather plans.

The 2014 conference offered accommodation across The Star’s two hotels to delegates. Responding to attendees’ desire to stay on site, for the 2015 conference, The Star has partnered with their client offering a discount code for accommodation at both The Darling and Astral Towers and Residences.

The 2014 World Business Forum was a major success, and has chosen to hold the 2015 conference at the same venue The Star for the second consecutive year, 27 – 28 May 2015.

The 2015 conference was another outstanding event that featured a stellar line up of speakers including Lynda Gratton, Professor at the London Business School, Steve Wozniak, the pioneer who co-founded Apple and Ben Bernanke, two-term Chairman of the Federal Reserve System.

The launch of the World Business Forum Sydney last year was a huge success with 2173 senior-level executives in attendance Australia s largest business management event.

The Star were instrumental in the planning and delivery of the Forum to ensure we exceeded expectations for both executives and sponsors. This was definitely achieved, as 100% of all executives surveyed mentioned that they would return again.

We look forward to working with the team at The Star again on the World Business Forum Sydney 2015 which will be held on 27th 28th May.
