He said that it is time that this system changes. He emphasised the importance of consultations and caution when implementing such changes.The Minister also told that Malta regularly holds discussions with other countries in order to learn from their best practices, especially when it comes to the criminal justice system. Bonnici stated that reforms were needed. He also mentioned that Malta is currently splitting the role of the Office of the Attorney General in two as part of these reforms.A number of months ago, Bonnici met the Chargé d’Affaires of the American Embassy in Malta Mark Schapiro. When asked about the meeting, a spokesperson for the embassy told that the embassy does not share the minutes of meetings it has with Government officials.A spokesperson for the Ministry of Justice said the meeting focused on the “excellent cooperation” between the International Institute for Justice and the Rule of Law (IIJ) and the Ministry.WhatsApp <a href=’;cb={random}’ target=’_blank’><img src=’;cb={random}&amp;n=ab2c8853&amp;ct0={clickurl_enc}’ border=’0′ alt=” /></a>last_img read more

first_imgOne of Amazon offices in Mumbai. Image Credit: citygossiper Advertisement US online giant Amazon on Thursday reported profits doubled in the past quarter, as it attracted more customers with video and other services, but the results missed Wall Street forecasts.Amazon shares dived more than 13 percent to $551 in after-hours trade on the results, which showed a fourth-quarter profit of $482 million, up from a $214 million profit a year earlier.The results marked the third consecutive quarterly profit for the company, which is a heavyweight in online retail as well as cloud computing, and more recently streaming video. – Advertisement – Overall revenue jumped 22 percent from a year ago to $35.7 billion.Amazon was one of the “clear winners” in the battle for consumers’ money during the year-end holiday season, according to Neil Saunders, chief of retail analysis firm Conlumino.But while Amazon delivered “stellar topline performance” along with improving net income, its profitability “is still painfully weak,” Saunders said.“This is a conscious decision by a company that uses a large chunk of its revenues to invest back into generating future growth,” Saunders said.“Clearly this is a strategy that is working, and it is one that is accepted by the market.”He gave the example of Amazon putting competitive pressure on traditional retail players such as Walmart.Investors looking for big profits may be put off by Amazon investing heavily to build its businesses, from data centers for cloud services and shows for its streaming television service to developing drones to quickly deliver online purchases.Amazon, which earned a reputation for making little or no profit as it gained market share, managed an annual profit for 2015 of $596 million.Revenues were up 20 percent for the year, at $107 billion.[related-posts]‘Like day one’ “Twenty years ago I was driving the packages to the post office myself and hoping we might one day afford a forklift,” said chief executive Jeff Bezos, who founded the company in 1994.“This year, we pass $100 billion in annual sales and serve 300 million customers. And still, measured by the dynamism we see everywhere in the marketplace and by the ever-expanding opportunities we see to invent on behalf of customers, it feels every bit like day one.”Amazon has made Bezos into one of the world’s wealthiest individuals, with a fortune estimated at some $50 billion, and he has since created his own space company called Blue Origin and purchased The Washington Post newspaper.The company has not offered details on its revenue from its Amazon Prime membership service, which offers free delivery and a variety of other services, or its own Kindle and Fire devices.But it has broken down the finances from its cloud computing unit called Amazon Web Services: It took in $2.4 billion in revenue in the quarter and $7.9 billion for the year, accounting for an operating profit of $687 million in the quarter and $1.9 billion for the year.The research firm Consumer Intelligence Research Partners estimates that Amazon Prime now has 54 million US members, spending on average about $1,100 per year much more than the $600 per year spent by non-members.Amazon offered no detailed numbers but said worldwide paid Prime memberships increased 51 percent last year.Those who subscribe get access to much of Amazon’s video streaming library for free as well as music and other content.Amazon’s “Mozart in the Jungle” comedy-drama received two Golden Globes earlier this month, only a year after the company scored its first win ever at the Globes for the original program “Transparent.”[Gadgets 360]last_img read more

first_imgShareMEDIA ADVISORYJeff Rice U research sheds light on Amazon versus Wal-Mart competitionWinning is a matter of superior e-service quality, experts sayHOUSTON – (July 14, 2015) – After Amazon announced plans last week for a day of online retail discounts July 15 comparable to Black Friday, Wal-Mart is launching a rival sale online the same day. Who will win the e-commerce battle? Winning is a matter of consistent superior e-service quality — not just on one particular day of the year, according to new research from Rice University’s Jones Graduate School of Business.Credit: University“Increased e-service quality is associated with increased customer satisfaction, which then leads to higher repurchase intentions,” said Vikas Mittal, the J. Hugh Liedtke Professor of Marketing at the Jones School. “In other words, increasing e-service quality enhances customer satisfaction and the likelihood of customer repurchase. If Amazon and Wal-Mart want to keep their customers coming back, they must focus on increasing satisfaction via e-service quality.”Mittal conducted the study with colleagues from the Jones School, Newcastle University Business School, U.K., and the University of Rostock, Germany. It will be published in the Journal of Retailing.E-service quality is the “extent to which a website facilitates efficient and effective shopping, purchasing and delivery,” according to one of the authors. E-service quality is “the beginning to the end of the transaction, including information search, website navigation, order, customer-service interactions, delivery and satisfaction with the ordered product,” the study said.As part of their study, the authors recently conducted a meta-analysis to understand the determinants and consequences of e-service quality. Meta-analysis is a statistical technique used to synthesize and summarize the findings of many published studies to gain a comprehensive view of an entire body of research. This meta-analysis represents 573 effects based on 31,264 individuals. These were obtained from 69 studies published between 2000 and 2014. The studies span different continents and represent sectors such as retailing and banking. The authors believe this is the most comprehensive examination of e-service quality.The meta-analysis identified four core dimensions of e-service quality: website design, fulfilment, customer service and security/privacy. Together, these four dimensions strongly impact overall e-service quality, the authors found.The researchers further examined specific attributes of each dimension and found that within website design, the five strongest attributes predicting overall e-service quality are product selection, price offerings, quality of information on the website, website convenience and website organization. Within fulfilment the main drivers of e-service quality are delivery condition and timeliness of delivery. For customer service, service level counts the most.“Interestingly, the importance of these four dimensions in determining overall e-service quality shows global variability,” Mittal said. “For example, both website design and customer service were more strongly associated with e-service quality in countries scoring higher on uncertainty avoidance. This makes sense as uncertainty avoidance is defined as the extent to which members of a culture feel threatened by uncertain or unknown situations. Thus having more information through superior website design and better service alleviates the negative emotions and ambivalence associated with decision making; hence, the stronger association.”Who will finally win — Wal-Mart or Amazon? “It is difficult to predict as these are strong, savvy rivals,” Mittal said. “The study clearly shows the strategic road map for winning by satisfying and retaining customers. One main conclusion from this analysis is that price offerings — that is, competitive pricing — is important, but we believe it will simply create parity, not differentiation. To differentiate, Wal-Mart and Amazon will have to focus on and invest in delivery condition and timeliness of delivery, product selection, website organization and information quality. Beyond parity, these will create differentiation for enhancing customer loyalty.”For a graphic illustrating the authors’ conceptual model of superior e-service quality, see To download a copy of the study, “E-Service Quality: A Meta-Analytic Review,” go to the Jones School via Twitter @RiceMBA.Follow Rice News and Media Relations via Twitter @RiceUNews.

If successful, it will be the first time since the War Powers Act was passed in 1973 that it has been used to end a foreign operation. Return to article. Long DescriptionPhoto credit: 123rf.comRic Stoll, Rice University’s Albert Thomas Professor of Political Science, is available to discuss the War Powers Act. Its essential elements, he says, and the rationale behind its existence are:The president should “in every possible instance” consult with Congress before putting U.S. armed forces into hostilities or into a situation where hostilities seem imminent.The President should consult regularly with Congress until U.S. forces are no longer engaged in hostilities or have been removed.Within 60 days after a report is submitted, the president must terminate the use of U.S. armed forces unless Congress has specifically authorized the use of force through a declaration of war or a resolution supporting the military operation.“The War Powers Act was the congressional response to U.S. involvement in the Vietnam War,” Stoll said. “Congress did pass the Gulf of Tonkin Resolution but never declared war and ultimately felt that presidents did not actively involve Congress in the decision-making of the war.”Stoll noted that the War Powers Act was only passed after U.S. involvement on the ground in Vietnam had ended. Its constitutionality, he says, has always been a subject of debate.“Advocates say that it is constitutional because it is Congress that has the right to declare war,” Stoll said. “Opponents say it infringes on the president’s constitutional authority as commander in chief. The only way to establish its constitutionality is to have a case brought to the Supreme Court and to have them rule on this issue.”No president has complied with the War Powers Act, Stoll said.“There have been a number of times when presidents have informed Congress about the deployment of forces and sometimes they have even asked for a congressional resolution of support for the deployment of forces,” he said. “But never has a president said this was being done because of the War Powers Act.”In addition, Congress has never invoked the act, Stoll said.As for the latest attempt, Stoll said that while he can see Congress passing a resolution, he finds it difficult to believe it will actually invoke the War Powers Act.For more information or to schedule an interview with Stoll, contact Amy McCaig, senior media relations specialist at Rice, at 713-348-6777 or news release can be found online at Rice News and Media Relations on Twitter @RiceUNews.Related materials:Stoll bio: link: credit: Rice UniversityPhoto link: credit: 123rf.comLocated on a 300-acre forested campus in Houston, Rice University is consistently ranked among the nation’s top 20 universities by U.S. News & World Report.
