The Internet - The first Worldwide Tool of Unification ("The End of History")

" ... Now I give you something that few think about: What do you think the Internet is all about, historically? Citizens of all the countries on Earth can talk to one another without electronic borders. The young people of those nations can all see each other, talk to each other, and express opinions. No matter what the country does to suppress it, they're doing it anyway. They are putting together a network of consciousness, of oneness, a multicultural consciousness. It's here to stay. It's part of the new energy. The young people know it and are leading the way.... "

" ... I gave you a prophecy more than 10 years ago. I told you there would come a day when everyone could talk to everyone and, therefore, there could be no conspiracy. For conspiracy depends on separation and secrecy - something hiding in the dark that only a few know about. Seen the news lately? What is happening? Could it be that there is a new paradigm happening that seems to go against history?... " Read More …. "The End of History"- Nov 20, 2010 (Kryon channelled by Lee Carroll)

“…5 - Integrity That May Surprise…

Have you seen innovation and invention in the past decade that required thinking out of the box of an old reality? Indeed, you have. I can't tell you what's coming, because you haven't thought of it yet! But the potentials of it are looming large. Let me give you an example, Let us say that 20 years ago, you predicted that there would be something called the Internet on a device you don't really have yet using technology that you can't imagine. You will have full libraries, buildings filled with books, in your hand - a worldwide encyclopedia of everything knowable, with the ability to look it up instantly! Not only that, but that look-up service isn't going to cost a penny! You can call friends and see them on a video screen, and it won't cost a penny! No matter how long you use this service and to what depth you use it, the service itself will be free.

Now, anyone listening to you back then would perhaps have said, "Even if we can believe the technological part, which we think is impossible, everything costs something. There has to be a charge for it! Otherwise, how would they stay in business?" The answer is this: With new invention comes new paradigms of business. You don't know what you don't know, so don't decide in advance what you think is coming based on an old energy world. ..."

Unilever partners with Alibaba to reach rural markets

Global consumer goods company Unilever, which streamlined its brands from over 2,000 to 400 plus, is planning to expand its offerings in China through a newly formed partnership with e-commerce operator Alibaba, according to the Economic Observer.

Unilever and Alibaba formally signed a strategic partnership deal in Hangzhou on July 20, with the two companies planning to work together on expanding in rural markets and cross-border e-commerce, according to a statement released by Unilever.

In an interview with the newspaper on July 14, Unilever North Asia president Marijn van Tiggelen said his company will introduce brands currently not available in China through Alibaba's platforms.

Unilever entered the Chinese market in 1986 where it currently only offers around 20 of its more than 400 brands, the newspaper noted.

The planned introduction of more brands into China, the newspaper said, is an aggressive move caused by Unilever's falling sales in emerging markets.

Unilever posted a 2.7% sales decline in 2014, with the Chinese market having recorded declines of over 20% during the third and fourth quarters, the newspaper said.

According to van Tiggelen, the company noticed that more and more Chinese travelers have been buying consumer goods during their overseas trips in the past two years, and Unilever hopes to introduce these products only available in overseas markets into China.

The introduction of a new product into China through traditional retail channels often needs to go through a long period of time between regulatory review and establishment of distribution, while e-commerce platforms present a cheaper and easier alternative, said Jeff Zhang, head of Alibaba's China Retail Marketplaces division.

Under the newly signed deal, Unilever plans to launch a marketing campaign through Cun.Taobao, an Alibaba platform targeting rural markets, every quarter, the newspaper said.

Unilever is also interested in working with Alibaba on the Chinese company's payment service Alipay, rural operations Cun.Taobao and big data, van Tiggelen added.

According to Zhang, Alibaba is trial running a system established for vendors in rural regions to order goods through Alipay, and Unilever is one of the companies that will take part in the trial operations.
