Epson’s most compact ink tank system printer


443Epson has extended its range of ultra-low-cost Ink Tank System (ITS) printers with the L120, its most compact ITS model yet. Designed with price-conscious home users, students and small office users in mind, the L120 delivers affordable and hassle-free printing.

Its high-capacity ink tank enables users to keep their printing costs low, increase productivity and reduce downtime. The purpose-built ink tank is fully integrated into the printer so users can enjoy reliable colour printing without the mess or hassle often associated with non-genuine refills and third-party ink tank systems.

Khalil El-Dalu, General Manager, Epson Middle East, says: “Using replacement ink bottles, it’s possible to print up to 4,000 pages in black and 6,500 pages in colour[1]. Epson-genuine ink bottles make it easy to refill the ink tank with their clear labelling and drip-free nozzle. The L120 has 40ml ink tanks, giving it a smaller, more compact design that easily fits into home offices or student bedrooms.”

The L120 comes with a 12-month (or 15,000-page) warranty and service support, providing peace of mind and help should you need it. It is ENERGY STAR-qualified and features ISO print speeds of 8.5ppm in black and 4.5ppm in colour[2], ensuring users won’t be waiting around for print jobs.

LinkedIn’s Annual List of Buzzwords Reveals 2013’s Most Overused Words in Member Profiles

LinkedIn’s Annual List of Buzzwords Reveals 2013’s Most Overused Words in Member Profiles


497LinkedIn, the world’s largest professional network, today released the most overused words in Kingdom of Saudi Arabia (KSA) members’ LinkedIn Profiles for 2013. The number one most overused buzzword in LinkedIn Profiles globally as well as in KSA is “responsible.”

LinkedIn currently has over 259 million members worldwide, out of which over 10 million members are from Middle East and North Africa. Below is the complete 2013 list of the top 10 words that appear most often in the profiles of the over one million LinkedIn members in KSA.

1. Responsible

2. Strategic

3. Effective

4. Dynamic

5. Expert

6. Organizational

7. Analytical

8. Creative

9. Competitive

10. Innovative

This is the fourth year that LinkedIn has released its annual list of overused buzzwords. Looking back at the past few years, a variety of buzzwords have risen and fallen in terms of their popularity. In 2010, “extensive experience” was the top buzzword worldwide, and for two years running in both 2011 and 2012, the top buzzword was “creative.”

“LinkedIn continues to be an integral business tool that helps working professionals successfully promote their personal brand while vying for career opportunities,” said Ali Matar, LinkedIn MENA spokesperson. “Our annual buzzwords list demonstrates how Saudi professionals are yet to fully utilize the LinkedIn platform to its maximum potential.”

“Instead of defaulting on commonly used words to describe your professional experiences, you can easily differentiate yourself by incorporating photos, videos and presentations in your LinkedIn profile to demonstrate your best work,” Matar added.

Show how you’re being responsible, creative or strategic and stand out from the crowd on LinkedIn using these tips:

Consider the opposite: Would you ever call yourself irresponsible or impatient? One of the quickest ways of deciding whether or not to select a word that may describe your professional brand is to consider the antonym. In the case of “effective,” its opposite is “ineffective,” making “effective” one of those descriptors that is a given. Your entire profile can show that you are responsible and effective without having to include the overused words.

Tie it to a result: Link your skills to a specific result that demonstrates your competence. Whenever possible, especially for buzzwords like “innovative,” “strategic” and “creative,” upload an example of your work to your profile such as a photo, video or presentation to give others a better representation of your talent.

Let others vouch for you: Another way of verifying the skill sets that the majority of others are also touting is to seek out endorsements or recommendations from reputable sources. When you are seeking recommendations, ask your connection to speak specifically to the skill set you are looking to emphasize and ideally tie it to an outcome they witnessed.

Use active language: Rather than saying you are responsible for something, demonstrate how that responsibility delivered results. Your peers, potential customers and future employers assume you were responsible for different programs, but how did that translate into results? For example, you could replace “responsible for social media,” with “accomplished goal of growing social media audience for the brand tenfold under my supervision” and provide visuals to further demonstrate it.

Right in front of your nose: Tailor your professional brand on LinkedIn and select the right words for specific opportunities by mirroring the language of aspirational companies. If you are aiming to work for or with a real estate company, for example, follow that company on LinkedIn and you will find a wealth of information that will guide you in your focus. By researching companies you aspire to work with, you can discover the right tone that you want to incorporate into your profile. If you’re not sure what words to select to describe your professional experience or need to switch out one of your buzzwords, go to the source and use one of theirs.

Interface names most sustainable large corporate at International Green Awards


Dubai, UAE, 21 November 2012: Global carpet tile manufacturer Interface has been named the

2283‘Most Sustainable Large Corporate’ at this year’s International Green Awards.  Interface also took away the ‘Grand Prix’ prize at the glittering awards ceremony, held at Battersea Power Station in London, UK.

The International Green Awards, now in their 7th year, is the leading global sustainability platform for education, leadership and innovation.  The awards recognise organisations that have exhibited these three areas in their sustainability approach.

Up against global brands such as Hitachi, Iberdrola, ITC Hotels and Pearson Plc, Interface won out due to its long-standing commitment to sustainability and the extent to which it is embedded within the organisation.

In 1994, Interface set itself the bold ambition to eliminate any negative impact it has on the environment by 2020 – a goal known as Mission Zero. Since then, the company has overhauled its entire business model, putting this goal at the heart of every design, manufacturing and business decision made.

Interface is now well over halfway towards reaching Mission Zero, having achieved commendable results in areas such as waste management, renewable energy use, carbon reduction and social impact.

Achievements include an 88 per cent reduction in waste sent to landfill, an 84 per cent reduction in water usage and a 32 per cent reduction in greenhouse gas emissions. 31 per cent of energy used by Interface is from renewable sources and 44 per cent of the materials that it uses are recycled or bio-based.

Lindsey Parnell, President and CEO of Interface EMEAI said, “Winning an International Green Award is a real honour and a testament to the hard work of our employees. Interface has been on the road to sustainability since 1994 and our achievements prove that with dedication, perseverance and innovation at front of mind, a true difference can be made.

“We have seen how sustainability can deliver real business benefits.  It has inspired some of our most innovative and best-selling products, motivated our workforce, enhanced our reputation and led to global savings of more than $438 million in avoided waste costs since 1995.  I hope that our experience will inspire other corporates to accelerate their own sustainability journeys and reap the rewards.”
