UScellular agora oferece solução de transferência de conteúdo da Synchronoss para agilizar a ativação do dispositivo na loja

Solução permite a transferência de dados digitais de forma rápida e segura para novos dispositivos móveis

BRIDGEWATER, N.J., Nov. 19, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Antecipando uma temporada de férias movimentada para novas vendas de celulares, a UScellular, a quarta maior operadora de serviço completo de celulares dos Estados Unidos, está oferecendo a Transferência de Conteúdo Synchronoss, uma solução que permite aos associados da UScellular Store transferir fácil e rapidamente conteúdo de um antigo dispositivo móvel para um novo sem nenhum custo para o cliente.

A Transferência de Conteúdo da Synchronoss Technologies, Inc. (NASDAQ: SNCR), líder global e inovadora de soluções de nuvem, mensagens e digitais, foi projetada para agilizar a integração de novos dispositivos, fornecendo um meio para a fácil transferência de conteúdo digital – incluindo fotos, vídeos, contatos, registros de chamadas, música, documentos, mensagens e configurações – de telefones celulares e tablets.

Chris Hill, Diretor Comercial da Synchronoss, disse que o acesso sempre ativo ao conteúdo digital deixou de ser simplesmente “bom ter” e passou a ser “obrigatório ter”, pois os consumidores integram cada vez mais dispositivos móveis nas suas vidas diárias.

“Os consumidores têm duas expectativas ao comprar um novo dispositivo: Uma delas é de não perderem nenhum dos seus dados digitais importantes com a troca de hardware. A segunda é de terem acesso aos seus dados assim que o novo dispositivo móvel estiver conectado à rede. O nosso aplicativo multiplataforma satisfaz as duas necessidades, tornando a ativação do novo dispositivo praticamente perfeita para os assinantes”, disse ele.

A solução de transferência de conteúdo é um aplicativo fácil de usar que abrange dispositivos e sistemas operacionais, e que elimina a necessidade de equipamentos na loja. Ela também pode reduzir significativamente o tempo que um cliente passa em uma loja para ativar um novo dispositivo.

“Na nossa busca constante de novas formas de aprimorar a experiência do nosso cliente, consideramos a solução Synchronoss um complemento importante para a nossa caixa de ferramentas de atendimento ao cliente”, disse Eric Jagher, Vice-Presidente Sênior de Vendas e Operações ao Consumidor da UScellular. “A transferência de conteúdo é uma maneira rápida e fácil de garantir que os clientes possam manter suas fotos, vídeos e outros dados importantes ao comprar um novo telefone, gastar menos tempo na loja e mais tempo com os amigos e familiares durante esta temporada de férias.”

Hill acrescentou que a previsão dos analistas de um salto nos gastos de fim de ano, juntamente com a atração dos novos modelos de smartphones lançados este ano, são motivos que levaram a UScellular a buscar a Synchronoss para ajudar os associados da loja a garantir a transferência fácil e rápida do conteúdo do cliente para novos dispositivos.

“A inclusão da nossa solução de transferência de conteúdo nos recursos de atendimento ao cliente da UScellular permitirá a oferta contínua de uma excelente experiência na loja”, disse ele.

A transferência de conteúdo faz parte de um grupo de soluções Synchronoss onboardX – um conjunto de ferramentas que permite que as operadoras móveis forneçam a experiência que os assinantes esperam e impulsionem a adoção do serviço. As soluções adicionais onboardX são Backup & Restore, um serviço em nuvem que oferece aos assinantes um lugar seguro para fazer backup, visualizar e restaurar conteúdo em sistemas operacionais e dispositivos; Out of Box Experience (OOBE), uma solução que simplifica a ativação de novos assinantes, serviços e dispositivos; e Digital Experience Platform (DXP), que simplifica a criação, orquestração e gerenciamento de experiências e jornadas online.

Our Lady Warns The World Of Impending Disaster In EWTN’s “Kibeho: Listen My Children”

IRONDALE, Ala., Nov. 20, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — Many have heard of the horrific genocide that took place in Rwanda in 1994, when 200,000 Hutus slaughtered 800,000 Tutsis and some moderate Hutus – their own countrymen. But few are aware that Our Lady warned the country about the impending disaster – and how to avoid it – during a series of apparitions to three school girls 12 years earlier. The visions of destruction, torture, and human carnage as well as a river of blood viewed by one of the visionaries were so terrifying that the young girl told Our Lady she was afraid she would never be able to sleep again.

“Kibeho: Listen My Children," which details the warning that Our Lady of Kibeho gave three Rwandan schoolgirls 12 years before the 1994 genocide, premieres at 10 p.m. ET, Wed., Nov. 24, with encores at 1:30 p.m. ET and 11 p.m. ET, Sun., Nov. 28, https://bit.ly/KibehoTrailer. Features Immaculée IIlibagiza, the woman who told the world about the genocide in the 2017 best-selling book, “Left to Tell,” which was later made into a well-known documentary by the same name.

“Kibeho: Listen My Children,” an EWTN Original production, premieres at 10 p.m. ET, Wednesday, Nov. 24, with encores at 1:30 p.m. ET and 11 p.m. ET, Sunday, Nov. 28. (Click here for the trailer: https://bit.ly/KibehoTrailer.

The Nov. 24 premiere will be preceded at 8 a.m. ET by “EWTN Live,” with Immaculée IIlibagiza, who appears prominently in the docudrama. Immaculée is the woman who told the world about the genocide in the 2017 best-selling book, “Left to Tell,” which was later made into a well-known documentary by the same name.

In addition to observations from Immaculée, the docudrama includes footage of the actual Rwandan school girl visionaries, the mental torture they endured by those who did not believe them, the doctors who were charged with determining if they were mentally ill, and church officials who made the final determination.

EWTN Global Catholic Network

Among other things, Our Lady of Kibeho requested that the people of Rwanda pray the Seven Sorrows Rosary, a devotion given to St. Bridget centuries earlier which had largely been forgotten. During the genocide, the sisters at the convent school the visionaries attended prayed this rosary from morning to evening. All survived the bloodbath. (Find meditations on the Seven Sorrows Rosary and more in this little booklet from EWTNRC: https://bit.ly/7SorrowsRosary

In the film, we witness Our Lady taking one of the visionaries, Marie Claire Mukangango, to heaven, hell and purgatory. When Marie Claire asks Our Lady why she was shown these places, she tells her: “I showed you so you know the life that matters most is what is coming after this life on earth. Go and tell everyone. Encourage them to live the right way. Tell them to live without respecting God is the ultimate waste of time. They will regret it bitterly.” Our Lady also said: “You have to tell the people that these places actually exist. To refuse Jesus is to refuse paradise.”

There is much more to tell about these apparitions. This is a story no one who cares about eternal life should miss.

In its 40th year, EWTN is the largest religious media network in the world. EWTN’s 11 TV channels are broadcast in multiple languages 24 hours a day, seven days a week to over 350 million television households in more than 145 countries and territories. EWTN platforms also include radio services transmitted through SIRIUS/XM, iHeart Radio, and over 500 domestic and international AM & FM radio affiliates; a worldwide shortwave radio service; one of the largest Catholic websites in the U.S.; electronic and print news services, including Catholic News Agency, “The National Catholic Register” newspaper, and several global news wire services; as well as EWTN Publishing, its book publishing division.

Blinken Warns Russian Group Not to Interfere in Mali

U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken on Saturday warned a shadowy Russian company with connections to the Kremlin not to interfere in efforts aimed at restoring democracy in the West African nation of Mali.

As he wrapped up a weeklong, three-nation tour of Africa that was dominated by crises across the continent, Blinken said it would be "unfortunate" if the Wagner Group became active in Mali, where there are internationally backed plans to have a democratically elected government in place by April.

Mali "remains a linchpin for future stability in the Sahel, and we have deep concerns about that stability and deep concerns about the extremism and terrorism that is spreading tentacles in the region," Blinken said at news conference with Senegal's foreign minister, Aissata Tall Sall. West Africa's Sahel region is the vast area south of the Sahara Desert where extremist groups are fighting for control.

"It would be especially unfortunate if outside actors engage in making things even more difficult and more complicated," Blinken said. He said he was speaking particularly of the Wagner Group, which has deployed mercenaries to Syria, the Central African Republic and Libya, drawing protests from the West and others.

The Wagner Group, owned by a confidant of Russian President Vladimir Putin, has been accused by Western governments and U.N. experts of human rights abuses in the Central African Republic and involvement in the conflict in Libya.

France and Germany have objected to the presence of Wagner mercenaries in Mali, and the European Union said this past week that it would consider sanctions against anyone interfering in Mali's democratic transition.

Russia defends company

Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov has said the company has a legitimate right to be in Mali because it was invited by the transitional government, and he has insisted the Russian government is not involved.

Blinken, who has also been pressing while in Africa for an end to crises in Ethiopia and Sudan, said the United States was ready to restore aid to Mali that was suspended after a military coup.

"This is ultimately about the people of Mali and their aspirations for peace, their aspirations for development and respect for human rights," he said. "We look forward to taking the next steps to resume the full array of assistance as soon as the democratically elected government has taken office."

Mali has struggled to contain an Islamic extremist insurgency since 2012. Extremist rebels were forced from power in Mali's northern cities with the help of a French-led military operation, but they regrouped in the desert and began launching attacks on the Malian army and its allies.

In June, Col. Assimi Goita was sworn in as president of a transitional government after carrying out his second coup in nine months. Mali faces increasing international isolation over the junta's power grab. Elections are scheduled for February, but the EU fears they will be delayed.

Security issues

In his meetings in Senegal, Blinken addressed security issues, particularly a rise in jihadi violence across the Sahel and increasing authoritarianism that many believe is fueling extremism.

Senegal is a key partner in the fight against extremism and last year it hosted the U.S. military's annual counterterrorism exercise, Flintlock.

One area where Foreign Minister Sall may seek U.S. help is with increased security measures along the country's borders with Mali and Mauritania, where several counterterrorism operations have taken place in recent years.

Car Bomb Kills Popular Broadcast Journalist in Somalia

A Somali journalist with state-run media was killed Saturday in Mogadishu when a suicide bomber blew up his car, government officials and his colleagues said. Another journalist also was injured.

Abdiaziz Mohamud Guled, better known as Afrika, the director of the state-run Radio Mogadishu, died from his wounds, while fellow journalist Sharmarke Warsame, who was traveling with Guled, sustained a severe injury, according to government spokesperson Mohamed Ibrahim Mo’alimuu.

In a brief statement, Mogadishu police spokesperson Abdifatah Aden Hassan said that the attack was carried out by a suicide bomber.

Al-Shabab claimed responsibility for the blast, according to Agence France-Presse.

“A terrorist suicide bomber apparently wearing an explosive vest rushed towards the car in which the journalists were traveling in the Bondhere district of Mogadishu, jumped to the car window, and blew himself up,” Hasan said.

"He was a national hero, a brother, and friend, and we are deeply saddened by his death,” Abdirahman Yusuf Omar, Somalia’s deputy minister for information, wrote on his Facebook page.

Guled was a prominent journalist and had worked with different private radio and TV stations in Mogadishu before he joined the Somali National TV and Radio more than12 years ago.

Guled was once the producer of a popular government TV program, Gungaar, which means "In-Depth." Guled at least once interviewed al-Shabab and ISIS suspects detained in government prisons by Somalia’s National Security Agency, to reveal information and the tactics used by the two terrorist groups in their attacks.

In November 2020, he was promoted and appointed as the director of the state-run Radio Mogadishu.

According to 2021 report by the Somali Journalists Syndicate and its partner, Somali Media Association, since February 2017, 12 journalists were killed in Somalia — three in 2017; four in 2018; two in 2019; two in 2020; and one in 2021.

According to U.S.-based Committee to Protect Journalists' annual Global Impunity Index, which spotlights countries where members of the press are singled out for killing and the perpetrators go free, Somalia remains the world’s worst country for unsolved killings of journalists.
