Re: Crude oil sales project

Sir/ Madam

I am contacting you in good faith and this proposal will be of mutual benefit. My intent of forwarding this proposition is based on the offer on ground.

The National petroleum agency of Sao Tome is granting an Oil prospecting license/allocation for 24 million barrels of crude oil per annum to any interested company. The license has an operating duration of 5 years and 24 million barrel quota.

However, we shall be entitled to a commission of $3/per barrel.


I await your swift response.

The Transformational Approach to IT Gratification (33:47 minutes)
Once the decision is made to improve your data center, the most
difficult question is often where to begin. Short-term and long-term
goals must be considered, meaning you'll have to accurately predict the
future up to 20 or so years down the road. Your clients demand instant
gratification, and it takes a special kind of data center to deliver that.

Today's Story Highlights

Government Regulation Is Killing the Entrepreneurial Spirit
I recently heard a couple of very interesting interviews on the radio --
both with Bernie Marcus, one of the original founders of The Home Depot.
They turned out to be two of the most interesting and important
interviews I have heard. Marcus said that government regulation has
grown so out of control that it would make starting and succeeding with
The Home Depot impossible today. What?
http://www.ecommercetimes.com/story/72819.html

Will Sprint Be Invited to the iPhone Ball?
Sprint could be the next U.S. wireless network to provide service to
iPhone users, according to a note written by Citadel analyst Shing Yin.
Sprint, the third largest mobile provider in the country, would join
AT&T and Verizon as the third U.S. network to cover Apple's iPhone.
http://www.ecommercetimes.com/story/72823.html

An Annual Checkup for Your Business
Most businesses with which I am familiar, especially those of small to
medium-size, are so caught up in day-to-day challenges that the only
time they take a good look at the health of their business and the
timeliness of the filing and payment of certain taxes and levies is when
they review their annual statements with their accountants.
http://www.ecommercetimes.com/story/72815.html

To Be Truly Customer-Centric, Change Your Conversations
Although businesses no longer control the conversation with their
customers, that conversation has never been more important to pay
attention to and to respond to in a coherent and, when possible,
personalized way. It's critical to realize that these relationships are
a key part of the customer experience, especially in the era of the
social customer.
http://www.ecommercetimes.com/story/72821.html

Microsoft's Monumental Android-Milking, Money-Making Machine
Say what you will about Microsoft and its products, but you have to
admit the company has a particular skill at making money. Take Android,
for example. Instead of using the wildly successful mobile platform as
an example and a model for its own lackluster efforts in that arena,
Redmond has apparently opted instead to make its competitor a friend --
a money-making friend, that is.

Today's Story Highlights

Droid 3 Adds a Little Muscle but Where's the 4G Beef?
Verizon on Thursday marched out its latest Android smartphone, the Droid
3 from Motorola. The release marks the latest in a line of phones often
credited with helping to revive Motorola's strength in cellphones and
giving Verizon a heavy-hitting rival to AT&T's iPhone -- before Verizon
started carrying Apple's phone as well, that is.
http://www.technewsworld.com/story/72822.html

3 Enterprise Security Bugaboos That Are Only Getting Worse
As we round the bend into the second half of 2011, enterprises face a
triple threat on the IT security front. These threats won't be easily
addressed merely by updating anti-virus programs. Some attacks will be
capable of reaching even the security-minded users. Here are three main
threats that will dominate over the next six months.
http://www.technewsworld.com/story/72816.html

A Sharper Screen Does Not a New iPad Model Make
While iPad owners blissfully browse the Web -- in the process racking up
1 percent of all worldwide browsing traffic -- some of them seem to be
looking ahead to October, when Apple might release a new version of its
iPad line. It's been widely reported that FBR's Craig Berger wrote a
note to investors that cited requests to component suppliers for quotes
for a new screen with a higher pixel density.
http://www.technewsworld.com/story/72818.html

Facebook Gives Users One More Way to Get Into Each Others' Faces
There was much speculation leading up to Facebook's product rollout
announcement on Wednesday -- and for once, it was right on the money.
Facebook announced it will be integrating the popular video chat service
Skype into its social network, with the rollout taking place over the
next several weeks. People will be able to use this offering for one-on-
one and group chats.
http://www.technewsworld.com/story/72817.html

iPad Surfers Rolling In
The Anonymous hacker community's AntiSec project gave Apple a love tap
for the July 4 holiday and, in essence, warned Cupertino to brush up on
its security measures. "Not being so serious ... Apple could be target
too," the group tweeted. "But don't worry, we are busy elsewhere."

Editor's Pick: 3 Enterprise Security Bugaboos That Are Only Getting Worse


3 Enterprise Security Bugaboos That Are Only Getting Worse

Amit Klein
07/07/11 5:00 AM PT
Enterprises are under constant attack from security threats of all stripes, but three in particular will likely come to the forefront in the second half of 2011. The growth of mobile devices will present an ever-wider opportunity for hackers, the desktop browser will become a new security perimeter, and attackers will learn new social skills with which to target their victims.
