NEW YORK, NY -- (Marketwired) -- 06/24/14 -- The FIFA World Cup has had plenty of surprises, upsets, and excitement since it kicked off on June 12, 2014. Spain's early elimination is one that shocked the world; though it may still be too early to predict a winner, people's perceptions have changed. With BRIC Language Systems second round pool, soccer fans have another way to get involved in the games, and win the chance for fluency in the language of their choice.
BRIC Language Systems has put together a World Cup Bracket to encourage fans to follow and participate in the FIFA World Cup frenzy. The BRIC Language World Cup Bracket (Pool ID: 97109) starts in the second round, where individuals pick the winners from the group stage all the way through the championship game. The online bracket is a convenient and easy way for soccer fans to join in on the festivities. As Brazil takes center stage for much of the world, many are left behind in their home countries. The BRIC Language World Cup Bracket is an exciting way to get involved, with the added bonus of potentially winning 12 hours of free language courses.
This year's FIFA World Cup already has many people wondering who will take home the hardware as multiple draws and upsets have built up the suspense. As the suspense builds, the challenge of picking which nation advances for the BRIC Language World Cup Bracket increases. "People will have to really prove how well they understand the current standings, my own assumptions have already proven false. I was stunned with Spain's early elimination, so I'll have to rethink my bracket," says BRIC Language's Mike Lee from Shanghai. Fortunately for others who have been surprised, the BRIC Language World Cup Bracket begins once the group stage is completed, so people will need to start picking who advances in the second stage. The deadline to submit second stage teams is before the start of stage 2; participants will need to submit their picks before 12PM (Eastern Daylight Time) on June 28, 2014.
As the bracket nears its deadline, soccer fans and language enthusiasts should prepare and analyze their picks to better their odds in winning the pool. "The bracket is a fun way to get people excited about learning and also gives soccer fans another way to enjoy the matches," BRIC Language Systems founder and CEO, Ryan McMunn explains. BRIC Language Systems' dedication to providing a quality program along with its enthusiasm towards the world cup should have soccer fans feeling excited.

More and more brands have jumped on the IoT bandwagon. We have an excess of wearables – activity trackers, smartwatches, smart glasses and sneakers, and more that track seemingly endless datapoints. However, most consumers have no idea what “IoT” means. Creating more wearables that track data shouldn't be the aim of brands; delivering meaningful, tangible relevance to their users should be. We're in a period in which the IoT pendulum is still swinging. Initially, it swung toward "smart for smart...

When you focus on a journey from up-close, you look at your own technical and cultural history and how you changed it for the benefit of the customer.

We needed something that would take us beyond reducing the development lifecycles, CI and Agile methodologies. We made a fundamental difference, even changed our culture...
