Vancouver measles outbreak sending unvaccinated youth to doctors for shots

first_imgTORONTO — Vancouver doctors are seeing an uptick in the number of unvaccinated teens and young adults seeking to be inoculated against measles in the wake of an outbreak of the disease at two schools in the city.Dr. Eric Cadesky, a family physician and president of Doctors of BC, said he’s seen a number of young patients recently who made appointments to get the measles, mumps and rubella (MMR) vaccine over concerns about the outbreak.“Some of them said their parents were against vaccination because of unreliable sources of information that they received,” Cadesky said. “Others had been hesitant (to be inoculated) because of pressure from peer groups.”Cadesky said every physician in his practice has noticed a jump in young people asking to get immunized, and he’s heard similar stories from a number of other doctors  elsewhere in the province and beyond.“I’ve heard of people throughout Canada and even doctors around the world saying that millennials are using these outbreaks as an opportunity to revisit the decision that their parents had made for them,” he said.“And many are making a different decision, which is to protect themselves and also, in many cases, that means protecting the people around them, because not everyone can receive the vaccine.”Among the patients Cadesky inoculated is Maddi Bisset, who had no vaccinations as a child because her mother believed young children shouldn’t be “pumped full of chemicals.”“She preferred more ‘natural’ alternatives, including homeopathy and essential oils,” the 23-year-old said in an email interview Wednesday.“Everything my mother did was with our best interests in mind. I just believe she put too much faith into false articles she found online and did not consider what heavy repercussions not vaccinating your child has on both their health, the public’s health and the possible life-threatening situations it puts at-risk people in.“With the frightening resurgence of measles in Vancouver, it wasn’t a choice anymore, is was a moral obligation to public safety,” Bisset said of her decision to get immunized.So far, nine cases of measles have been confirmed at the two French-language schools in Vancouver, a cluster that began after an unvaccinated B.C. child contracted the disease during a family trip to Vietnam, where the highly contagious disease is endemic.  Infection with the measles virus begins with a high fever, coughing, runny nose and red eyes, followed by the development of a blotchy, painful rash that starts on the face and spreads to the rest of the body. A person is contagious for about four days before the rash erupts and four days after its onset. Complications include ear infections that can lead to deafness, blindness, pneumonia and encephalitis, or inflammation of the brain.Measles, which is spread through air-borne droplets after an infected person coughs or sneezes, can also be a killer. The World Health Organization says there were 110,000 deaths from measles globally in 2017, most of them children under age five.While measles was declared officially eliminated in Canada in 1998, cases imported by travellers can cause sporadic outbreaks like the one now occurring in Vancouver, seeding the disease within the community and putting those without immunity at risk.Some people — infants, people with certain underlying health conditions and those undergoing chemotherapy — cannot be vaccinated and must rely on “herd” immunity to prevent infection. Others at risk are those who choose not to be immunized, often based on a long-discredited 1998 U.K. study that suggested the MMR vaccine was linked to autism in children.Cadesky said young patients like Bisset are often exposed to ideas and beliefs among their peers that differ from those of their parents, causing them to look for validated information, “and they’re correctly concluding that vaccination is safe and effective.”Bisset agreed, saying her friends are all vaccinated and are pro-immunization.“I think youth have adapted along with the Internet and have a better sense of which sources are reliable, and with so much information there now, can compare information easily,” she said.Dr. Theresa Tam, Canada’s chief public health officer, said the MMR shot is not only safe, but it’s one of the most effective vaccines doctors have for preventing disease.  “If someone is questioning whether to get vaccinated or not … it’s a really good idea now to go in and talk to your health provider if you have questions and get them answered and get yourself vaccinated,” Tam said. “I don’t think it’s too late ever to get your measles immunization up to date.”That’s especially advisable for anyone planning to travel during the upcoming March break to countries where the disease is poorly controlled, she said. Measles remains a common affliction in many areas of the world, including in parts of Europe, Asia, the Pacific and Africa.The U.S. is also experiencing travel-related outbreaks, with 127 cases of measles confirmed in 10 states between Jan. 1 and Feb. 14, with Washington and New York states particularly hard hit by the disease, says a report by the Centers for Disease Control.— Follow @SherylUbelacker on Twitter.

New World News anchor Muir wants to keep racking up frequent flier

AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email NEW YORK, N.Y. – Among the stories David Muir will introduce during his first week as ABC’s “World News” anchor is one he reported about a generation of Syrian refugees missing out on an education.Besides detailing a hidden aspect of the civil war, the story serves a dual purpose: to signal viewers — and his bosses — that Muir wants to get out of the office for work as much as he can.“A huge part of this for me was a promise that I was not going to be tethered to the anchor desk,” said Muir, who officially replaces Diane Sawyer Monday night.Muir, 40, joins NBC “Nightly News” anchor Brian Williams and Scott Pelley of the “CBS Evening News” at one of the three jobs generally considered the pinnacle of American broadcast news. Muir is also a generation younger than the 55-year-old Williams and Pelley, 57.Already a familiar face as “World News” weekend anchor and Sawyer’s sub on weeknights, Muir has groomed himself for the job since he was a child.As a latchkey child of divorced parents growing up near Syracuse, N.Y., Muir took comfort from the news “family” that appeared on his television each evening. He watched ABC’s Peter Jennings, trying to guess who would be named “person of the week.” At age 12, he wrote to Syracuse anchorman Ron Curtis for advice on how to get in the business and had an internship at WTVH-TV by the next summer.Muir became so familiar that the newsroom had a spot on the wall to mark how much he’d grown each year. When he was still at nearby Ithaca College, WTVH hired Muir to anchor the weekend news.After five years at WTVH, he moved on to Boston and, in 2003, came to ABC News. Hurricane Katrina was one of the first places his work attracted attention.“All of the elements of being a news anchor he does superbly,” said David Westin, the ABC News president who hired Muir. He shows versatility in reporting, interviewing and working in the studio, he said.Network anchors travelling to stories used to be more commonplace, and when Westin appointed Bob Woodruff and Elizabeth Vargas to replace Jennings a decade ago, it was on the theory that at least one would be on the road regularly. It has become less frequent, in part due to costs. Muir considers the reporting an important part of his identity and, he believes, what viewers expect of him.“The evening news is evolving rapidly, and I think we have to be extraordinarily nimble,” he said.The dinnertime newscasts have been shadowed by predictions of their demise for about as long as Muir has been working. But each has seen its viewership increase over the past year. Muir, who frequently tweets during commercial breaks, said the programs’ abilities to sum up the day’s most important stories is valuable at a time people are bombarded with information.Andrew Tyndall, a consultant who monitors the content of evening newscasts, said “World News” tends to be faster-paced with a higher story count when Muir is anchor. Muir resists the notion that he packs the broadcast with more material, but said he wants to keep some things short so more important stories have room to breathe.Muir will start “World News” with a new executive producer, Almin Karamehmedovic, who he said shares “a thirst to travel the world.”It’s difficult to judge at the start where a new anchor will take a broadcast. Westin likened it to a president appointing a new Supreme Court justice — the person may not turn out as liberal or conservative as was initially thought.Tyndall’s name is mud at ABC because of a report last winter criticizing the “Disneyfication” of “World News,” specifically a greater emphasis on consumer and entertainment news at the expense of global concerns.“When I see reports like that or words like that, I think of the moment when I’m standing in Tahrir Square with a producer and photographer and Mubarak’s men come charging in on their horses with their whips,” Muir said. “Or when we were in Mogadishu and were fired upon by forces linked to Al Qaida.”He added, “I’d be very hard-pressed to tell them that what we’re doing out there is ‘soft.’”Muir’s role will be slightly different than that of his predecessor; ABC said. George Stephanopoulos will be the network’s main anchor on breaking news reports. Muir said that’s fine, and it ties in to his desire not to always be deskbound.He recently unearthed the letter that the Syracuse anchorman sent back to the advice-seeking 12-year-old, which today sounds prescient.“Competition in television news is keen,” Curtis wrote. “There’s always room for the right person. It could be you.”____David Bauder can be reached at dbauder@ap.org or on Twitter@dbauder. His work can be found at http://bigstory.ap.org/content/david-bauder.

New stopstart motor technology could cut diesel fume exposure MHT says

first_imgAn Australia-based company has developed a stop/start motor technology that the inventor thinks could reduce the likelihood of high level exposure to diesel fumes becoming the next big occupational health threat to affect the world mining and trucking industries.Hydraulic engineer and inventor, Norm Mathers, believes continued exposure to diesel fumes could expose the Australia and world mining and trucking industries to multiple public liability claims.His company, Mathers Hydraulics Technology (MHT), believes it could reduce such exposure.Warnings about harmful exposure have led to the European Union demanding direct action on reducing use in trucks and buses by 2025, according to Mather. In addition, in June 2012, the International Agency for Cancer Research (IARC) classified diesel emissions (including diesel particulates matter) as a known human carcinogen.“Similar to coal dust, diesel exhaust includes inorganic particulate matter, which is largely carbon. Being inorganic, it is likely to be insoluble in the body, and, it would seem, could affect the body in a similar manner as coal dust which has been found to be a direct cause of black lung disease,” Mathers said.MHT has developed a technology to reduce diesel emissions by turning engines off when idle and, thereby, reducing emissions significantly in heavy traffic conditions. Stop/start technology on petrol-engine cars has proved to be both highly effective and widely accepted in reducing emissions, he said. However, up until now, the same benefits of stop/start technology have not been available for larger diesel engines because of the need for a high-speed starter motor.Using its fuel saving vane pump, MHT has developed a high-speed stop/start motor which also powers an accumulator during braking for energy storage. This currently wasted braking energy is added back to reduce fuel use.US machinery giant, Caterpillar, under the direction of Philip McCluske (today an MHT advisor), used a similar technology to great effect on hydraulic excavators that was highly effective in capturing and storing up to 12% energy in hydraulic accumulators. This saved up to 40% diesel usage on a machine.last_img read more

Namas transformation from the worlds biggest landowner to Irelands biggest landlord

first_imgIf Nama is unable to remain competitive in terms of compensation levels and professional experience and development, Nama will likely find it difficult to retain its highly skilled workforce to the detriment of the ultimate return to the state.On top of this, the Government has a major problem with property prices in the capital.A supply shortage is sending residential prices rapidly upwards, while as Noonan outlined yesterday, the private construction sector is not yet repaired to a degree where it can build out the units necessary to keep prices under control.Read: Why is this house so expensive?The same dynamic is affecting the market for office space in the city. Competition is forcing prices upwards, with insufficient supply coming on-stream to meet demand. Source: Sam Boal/Photocall IrelandRead: Dublin office rent has grown by nearly 25% in a yearMinister Noonan and Nama hope that the new plan will solve all three problems in one fell swoop: provide more security for Nama employees, keep down office rents in Dublin, and alleviate the growing housing crisis in the capital.Will it work?Ultimately, only time will tell.On the first count, Nama employees will doubtlessly be pleased that they should be in a job for the next six years. That, however, doesn’t diminish the charms of new opportunities.Yesterday, Frank Daly and Michael Noonan seemed to rule out wage increases for staff.The bad bank itself is likely to continue lobbying Government for flexibility on wages, with no guarantee that Noonan’s department or any successive administration will give in.Upping the wages of Nama staff will never be a politically palatable move. Meanwhile, those alternative offers won’t be going anywhere any time soon.Even on its primary objective of unloading bad loans while the going is good, success is not guaranteed. Interest in the Irish market is being driven largely by the large amount of liquidity and debt on offer in the US.Cash rich buyers are hungry for assets – in this case loans and property – that will give them a return on investment. With interest rates sure to rise eventually, Nama knows that this won’t last forever.A shock to the market could send investors scurrying, and put pay to Nama’s plan almost overnight.When it comes to the property development play, Nama will hope that it is able to transform its pipeline of notional residential units into real houses.Only 3,000 properties are ‘shovel-ready’, with planning permission in place. The vast majority, some 19,000 units, need to get planning, finance and construction partners in place.Finally, the development of both the residential units and the Dockland’s answer to Canary Wharf is fraught with political danger.Nama has already said that it is willing to do business with major developers that had their loans transferred into the agency. The sheen could be taken off any project, no matter how grand in scope and ambition, if a familiar face is co-opted into the project.How, for example, might the plain people of Ireland feel if a Johnny Ronan or equivalent were called into action in the Docklands? Source: Laura Hutton/Photocall IrelandThe verdictWhat transpired yesterday was not a master stroke.It was a pragmatic response to a set of challenges that are the kind of problems that Nama -and the Government – are happy to have. The agency would have jumped at the chance to be in this position when it was set up in 2009.However, yesterday’s announcement has achieved nothing by itself.There are still plenty of risks and hurdles to be cleared before the Nama saga can be deemed a success – and has been painfully apparent, nothing makes a mockery of predictions quite as completely as the Irish property market.Read: Pathway to ‘Dublin’s Canary Wharf’ -Nama’s €3 billion property play>Read: Here’s the most complete breakdown of Nama loans you’ll see today> All smiles: Michael Noonan and Frank Daly yesterday Source: Mark Stedman/Photocall IrelandWHEN IT WAS set up, Nama was billed as the world’s biggest landowner.It had one objective: to clean up the Irish property market, expunging the thousands of unsustainable loans advanced during the boom, and allowing the banks to get back to ‘normal’ lending.At its inception, the idea of profit seemed far fetched.Five years later, Nama is planning to change direction, and potentially become Ireland’s biggest landlord.On top of this, it may even return a profit to the state – relative to what was paid for the discounted loans that were transferred into the agency.What’s happening?Yesterday Nama chairman Frank Daly and Minister for Finance Michael Noonan announced that the agency will change focus and move into property development alongside its original loan disposal brief.Read: Pathway to ‘Dublin’s Canary Wharf’: Nama’s €3 billion property playThe agency will focus on two additional briefs – firstly, to oversee the development of the Strategic Development Zone in Dublin’s docklands, and secondly, to drive the construction of new homes in the city. Seem familiar? A Progressive Democrat pamphlet from 2006 Source: Irish Election LiteratureClick here for a larger versionNama has put aside up to €1.5 billion for each project. It’s not clear exactly how this cash will come into the equation, but it could eventually be deployed as finance to joint venture partners.Why is this happening?As mentioned already, Nama was set up to dispose of the bad property loans of the boom years. It was originally given until 2020 to complete this task.That, however, was before the hyperactive level of interest in Irish commercial property that has emerged over the last 18 months.Such is the appetite among investors, both domestic and international, for bricks and mortar in Ireland, that Nama will most likely get rid of around €15 billion worth of loans this year alone.The pace of disposal means that the agency could wind up well before the 2020 deadline.This, however, raises the sticky question of what to do with Nama.Whither Nama?Under the review announced yesterday, Nama will now dispose of 80% of its loan book by the end of 2016. The hope is that this will cover the repayments to the state, with the remaining 20% seen as an opportunity to make a profit. Nama’s headquarters in Dublin Source: Sasko Lazarov/Photocall IrelandMichael Noonan said that he wants the sale of all the entire loan book concluded by the end of 2018.The logic is simple enough: the Government wants to strike while the iron is hot, taking advantage of Ireland being in vogue with buyers, and draw a line under the whole saga.However, one of the main problems is holding on to enough staff with the expertise required to finish the job.Nama staff have accumulated a skill-set which is in great demand in the private sector, while their wages are limited under Haddington Road, and the security of their posts is flimsy, with p45s guaranteed whenever it is that Nama closes its doors.This was spelled out in the review released yesterday by the Department of Finance:last_img read more

Once Upon a Time Mixes Jules Verne with Teen Angst

first_img This week’s Once Upon a Time takes us 20,000 leagues under the sea so Henry can work out his stepdad issues. We start off during the time of the dark curse, where Hook is a ruthless pirate captain chasing his revenge against The Dark One. He finds a stowaway on the ship and is about to stab him, but a sea monster swims underneath the ship. Well, they think it’s a sea monster. The stowaway says he’s about to save Hook’s life and pushes him into the water before jumping in himself.Hook wakes up on a submarine called the Nautilus. It turns out the stowaway was its captain, Nemo. Yeah, we’re getting Jules Verne stories this week! It turns out Nemo needs Hook for a mission. The next time we see them, Hook and Nemo are exploring an underwater cave with another member of the submarine’s crew. It appears that Nemo recruits people who are seeking vengeance and gives them another purpose in life. They find a treasure chest but are attacked by a sea monster before they can open it. The Sea Monster almost drags Hook away, but Nemo stabs its tentacle and saves Hook’s life.In Storybrooke, Regina confronts the Evil Queen at Zelena’s house to tell her that airing Emma’s secret didn’t tear the family apart. It turns out that’s just a distraction. Snow White and Charming have broken into the house to rescue Dr. Hopper. The Evil Queen figures it out and is about to attack Snow and Charming, but Regina protects them. The Evil Queen says she has even more up her sleeve to tear the family apart.The Evil Queen (Lana Parilla) draws upon the power of a whiny teen (Jared S. Gilmore). (Photo: Screenshot via ABC)At Emma’s house, Henry and Hook aren’t getting along so well. Hook throws away Henry’s Pop Tart and says he’ll make him a breakfast of boiled mackerel and grapefruit instead. While Henry is taking out the garbage, the Evil Queen appears and shows him that Hook kept the scissors. Well, that’s what happens when you don’t do your ONE JOB, Hook. Henry confronts Hook about the scissorWhs and comes very close to screaming, “You’re not my REAL DAD!” He’s about to throw them in the water when the Nautilus shows up. Hook tells Henry to run, but they’re stopped by two men carrying Harpoons. The men tell Hook that the captain wants to see them.It turns out Hook isn’t the only one who wants to hang on to the shears. Rumplestiltskin wants them too. While speaking with the Evil Queen to try and figure out where they went, she figures out that Rumple wants to use them on Belle. He hopes that severing her from her fate will allow them to be together again.Hook and Henry are taken under the sea, and Henry continues to yell at his mom’s new boyfriend, and there is SO. MUCH. ANGST. pouring out of the screen. Hook starts working on a plan to get off the Nautilus, as the captain is someone you don’t want to meet. Eventually, Hook reveals that he killed his father and left his brother an orphan. He says since he deprived himself of a family before, he wants to do it right now.Henry isn’t adjusting well to his mom’s new boyfriend. (Photo: Screenshot via ABC)Back in the past, Nemo reveals that the chest contained a key to The Mysterious Island. He tells Hook that the Mysterious Island is a place where they don’t have to worry about anything anymore. Nemo tells Hook what happened to his first mate’s parents. Hook soon figures out that Nemo’s first mate is younger brother, Liam. Hook is about to leave the submarine when Liam finds out that Hook is the one that killed his father. Liam charges at Hook and kills Captain Nemo.Henry uses the scissors to pick the lock and suits Henry up to exit the submarine and get back to Storybrooke. Henry asks how Hook is going to get back and Hook says he’s not going back. There’s only one helmet. He shoves Henry out of the submarine and is confronted by Liam. It turns out The Mysterious Island is actually the Land of Untold Stories. Liam says they found the Land and were able to save the captain. But when Hyde brought them to Storybrooke, Nemo died.Liam attacks Hook and is about to kill him when Henry appears, and Liam hesitates. Hook hits Liam over the head and asks Henry why he came back. Henry says he couldn’t ruin his new family by leaving Hook behind. Hook promises that he won’t use the scissors on Emma and they put them in a treasure chest and dump it into the ocean. They take Liam to the hospital and find that Nemo isn’t dead. Earlier, a man from the Land of Untold Stories was found and taken there, though nobody could figure out who he was. Surprise, Nemo’s alive.Hook then tells Emma everything. He admits that he didn’t get rid of the scissors and everything that happened was his fault. Emma forgives him, saying she’d do the same thing. The Evil Queen is frustrated by the family being so forgiving and shares her frustrations with Rumplestiltskin. She says she needs a new plan. She needs to go after what she really wants directly, and she needs Rumplestiltskin’s help to do it. After a very long kiss (ew), she reveals that she has the scissors and will give them to Rumplestiltskin in exchange for Snow White’s heart.Aladdin (Deniz Akdeniz) promises Jasmine (Karen David) that he’ll fix things. (Photo: Screenshot via ABC)While all this was going on, Emma convinced Aladdin to return to the people he let down and try to fix things. Aladdin returns to Jasmine and apologizes. He promises to listen to what Jasmine has to tell him and to fix things when they return to Agrabah. Jasmine says that after Aladdin had left, she went to a neighboring kingdom for help. When she returned, Agrabah was gone.This was as close as Once Upon a Time gets to a problem-of-the-week episode. The Evil Queen caused some trouble; our heroes solved it. The overarching story didn’t really progress. Fortunately, the Jules Verne stuff was a lot of fun. Bringing in these classic novels injected some life into the series, and it’s fun to see Once Upon a Time go steampunk.Then there was the Hook-Henry drama. Man, seeing the hit every new stepdad/angsty teen cliche was a bummer. On the bright side, it got resolved quickly, so we won’t have to deal with it next week. But because it was handwaved away so easily, I have to ask why it was even there in the first place. While this episode had some fun elements, it felt unnecessary. The best thing it did was set up The Evil Queen’s new plan, which should make for some great episodes in the future.

Time Inc CEOs Memo on Restructuring Layoffs

first_imgRELATED STORY: Layoffs, Restructuring at Time Inc. After weeks of speculation surrounding layoffs at Time Inc., CEO Ann Moore broke the news about the company’s restructuring to her staff this afternoon.Here’s Moore’s memo: —– Original Message —–From: Moore, Ann – Executive AdministrationSent: Tue Oct 28 18:00:37 2008Subject: Staff AnnouncementOctober 28, 2008To: Time Inc. EmployeesFrom: Ann MooreRe: Staff AnnouncementAs all of you are aware, industry conditions have been challenging due to the financial crisis, which has produced sharp decreases in advertising spending. This is expected to continue through most of 2009.It’s important that we at Time Inc. react quickly to this new reality in order to maintain our financial strength, build our market position, and sharpen our ability to bounce back at the first signs of economic recovery. All the while we must continue to give our readers and audience the high quality editorial products they have come to expect from our publications and websites.This is a challenge, unlike any we’ve seen before. And after much careful study and consultation with many of you who run our businesses, I have concluded that it is no longer possible to operate our company with the same decentralized management structure that served us so well during our many years of sustained growth.So, effective tomorrow, we are going to implement a much more centralized management structure, organized into three business units that will group together titles that share similar audiences, advertisers, and the talents and skills of their staffs.  The goal is to enable our company to move faster, go to market smarter, save significant costs, and employ our editorial resources more efficiently.In broad strokes, here is how it will work:Business Units. Time Inc.’s 24 U.S. magazines and companion web sites will be grouped into three business units, each reporting to a senior corporate executive. Each unit will have a similar structure that will include four key executives to direct the ad sales, digital business, financial and editorial efforts across that group. One of the most significant centralizing features of this new structure is that each of the three units will have one General Manager, responsible for all budgeting in the unit, who will report directly to Time Inc. EVP and CFO Howard Averill, with a dotted line to their respective senior operating executive.The three Business Units will consist of:* News: the existing print and digital properties in the TIME group, the Fortune|Money group, and the Sports Illustrated group, as well as Life.com and GEE. John Squires, EVP Time Inc. will manage the News Business Unit.  * Style and Entertainment: the existing print and digital properties in the PEOPLE group, InStyle, Entertainment Weekly, and Essence. I will act as the EVP for this group so the Style and Entertainment Business Unit will report to me.* Lifestyle: the existing print and digital properties of Real Simple, This Old House, All You, Southern Living, Cooking Light, Sunset, Health, Cottage Living, Coastal Living, and Southern Accents, along with MyRecipes.com and MyHomeIdeas.com. Sylvia Auton, EVP Time Inc. will manage the Lifestyle Business Unit, while also retaining responsibility for IPC Media.Editorial. John Huey continues as Time Inc.’s Editor-in-Chief, overseeing the News Business Unit Managing Editors and Martha Nelson, the Managing Editor of the Style and Entertainment Business Unit.  In editorial alone we have seen three recent examples of how this sharing across titles can work to our benefit. During the summer Olympics, Sports Illustrated set up a system to supply Time.com with a fantastic array of photos from the games; in Europe and Asia, FORTUNE and TIME already are sharing correspondents; and, of course, the most visible example was the recent TIME cover story on the economy written by FORTUNE managing editor Andy Serwer and Allan Sloan. In the new structure we will see much more of this kind of cooperation.Time Inc. Advertising Sales and Marketing. Given the difficult ad sales environment, it is critical that all of our brands work together to efficiently and effectively offer advertisers the solutions they need. For this reason, we are creating Time Inc. Advertising Sales and Marketing, a group that will be charged with setting and executing corporate ad sales strategy along with the ad sales head for each business unit.  Stephanie George will become President of Time Inc. Advertising Sales and Marketing and will remain a Time Inc. EVP. She will also remain on the Board of American Express Publishing. Time Inc. Consumer Marketing and Sales. Consumer Marketing and Sales will be run by Brian Wolfe, who has been promoted to EVP and will report directly to me. All Consumer Marketing and Sales activities will be centralized under Brian. This department will be responsible for circulation net income across all U.S. Magazines, as well as Synapse, QSP, Time Warner Retail, Time Customer Service, and TW4, Time Inc.’s international fulfillment operation.Everyone in the Consumer Marketing organization should be proud of their accomplishments in this difficult environment – some of our largest newsstand titles are having record years and we are seeing strong circulation net income results across the company. These organizational changes, along with the recent acquisition of QSP and the incorporation of Synapse into Time Inc. Consumer Marketing and Sales, will give Brian and his team the ability to continue this momentum by making the best decisions for the company as a whole, and making them quickly and definitively.Finally, I’m pleased to announce the promotions of Kerry Bessey and Maurice Edelson to EVP, Time Inc. Time Inc. Senior Management along with the Business Unit leaders are working on restructuring within each group, and will announce further changes in the coming weeks. While the broader economy and the advertising industry both continue to present challenges, I know we can weather this storm and emerge as an even stronger company when the economy begins to recover. We are still a very profitable company. Our cash flow is strong. We have made tremendous progress with our digital business.  Each month, more than 26 million people visit Time Inc. websites. We know our consumers continue to value our magazines and websites.  We have the top brands in all the categories where we publish and we’re finding exciting new ways to expand our titles beyond the printed page and the web.  The importance of fact-based journalism has never been clearer given the many serious issues facing the world and our core competency, trusted editing skills, has never been more needed than in this time of too much information.I’d like to thank you all for your continued hard work.A.M.last_img read more

2G spectrum scam SC threatens to take away Aircel 2G spectrum licence

first_imgThe Supreme Court on Friday threatened to take away Aircel’s 2G spectrum, and also cancel the telecom service provider’s 2G licence, over the continued absence in court of Maxis promoter Anantha Krishnan and director Ralph Marshal. Anantha Krishnan, it may be remembered, is a majority-shareholder in Aircel, in what is now known as the Aircel-Maxis deal. A bench of the apex court, headed by Chief Justice of India JS Khehar, also stopped the transfer of 2G spectrum that had originally been granted to Aircel, to another entity. The bench also set the date for the next hearing of the case on February 3. According to an Economic Times report: “The DoT [Department of Telecom] has been asked to look for an alternative service provider for Aircel’s 65 million subscribers. The company and its owner may however escape the order if they put in an appearance through lawyers. For the time being Aircel rights cannot be sold or transferred to any third parties.”An IANS report added: “The court said the Ministry of Information Technology would devise ways and means by which the 2G licence originally granted to Aircel could be provisionally transferred to any other service provider, so that subscribers might not suffer any adverse consequences.”It added: “The court made it clear that Krishnan and Marshal would not be permitted to raise any issue of financial loss that they might suffer on account of the proposed cancellation of the 2G licence and spectrum granted to Aircel in November 2006.”The case pertains to one of the biggest scams in India’s history, and involves brothers Dayanidhi and Kalanithi Maran, who have unsuccessfully tried to challenge a Delhi special court’s jurisdiction in trying their case. The siblings and others are accused of money-laundering in connection with the aforementioned Aircel-Maxis deal.last_img read more

From US House Floor Texas Democrat Calls For Trumps Impeachment

first_img Share Official House PortraitU.S. Rep. Al Green, D-Houston.WASHINGTON – Amid multiple Trump-related scandals rocking the Capitol, U.S. Rep. Al Green, D-Houston, called for the impeachment of President Donald Trump from the House chamber on Wednesday morning. “I rise today, Mr. Speaker, to call for the impeachment of the president of the United States of America for obstruction of justice,” he said. “I do not do this for political purposes…I do this because I believe in the great ideals this country stands for: liberty and justice for all. “Our democracy is at risk…This offense has occurred before our very eyes,” he said, describing Trump’s firing of former FBI Director James Comey, who led an investigation of Trump associates’ ties to Russian intelligence. “We cannot allow this to go unchecked. The president is not above the law,” he added. “It is time for the American people to weigh in.” While Green had previously called for impeachment in a news conference earlier this week, he shined a brighter spotlight on his position Wednesday by reiterating it from the House of Representatives at a time when the push for independent investigations into Trump appear to be picking up steam.Despite Green’s passion Wednesday, his speech is unlikely to spur immediate action. Green is not a member of the House Judiciary Committee, which would oversee such a proceeding. And he is a member of the Democratic minority, which has little power to move ahead on investigations or to begin proceedings to remove the president from office. Democratic leadership sources on Capitol Hill also say they are urging restraint within the caucus because they need Republican buy-in for a special prosecutor or independent commission. “I have not talked to another person in Congress,” he said. “This is about my position. This is about what I believe.”Read related coverage:Texans in Congress spent Tuesday processing a series of stunning political revelations, as President Donald Trump’s presidency becomes more embattled.U.S. Sen. John Cornyn pulled out of consideration for the position of FBI director. Republicans mostly refused to comment on whether a Congressional investigation is sufficient to getting to the bottom of Russian interference in the 2016 election. This article originally appeared in The Texas Tribune at https://www.texastribune.org/2017/05/17/texas-democrat-calls-trump-impeachment-house-floor/.Texas Tribune mission statementThe Texas Tribune is a nonprofit, nonpartisan media organization that informs Texans — and engages with them — about public policy, politics, government and statewide issues.last_img read more

The company is broadly launching a way to add songs to News Feed posts and Facebook Stories, expanding the rollout of its lip-syncing feature, and will soon let users add songs to their profiles.To date, Facebook has inked licensing deals for songs with Universal Music Group, Warner Music Group, Sony/ATV Music Publishing, Merlin, Kobalt, Global Music Rights and several European performing rights organizations.Starting Wednesday (Oct. 24), Facebook is expanding the ability to use songs in Facebook Stories or News Feed posts. To add a song to photos and videos, users can tap on the sticker icon in the camera view and select the “music” sticker. After selecting a song, a sticker is added with the artist and song name to the post. Popular on Variety center_img At launch, several million songs will be available for users of Facebook’s iOS and Android apps to include in their posts. The features will initially be available in the U.S., Australia, Belgium, Czech Republic, France, Germany, Great Britain, Ireland, Italy, Luxembourg, Mexico, New Zealand, Portugal, Spain, Sweden and Switzerland.Meanwhile, Facebook launched Lip Sync Live in June in limited markets, letting users broadcast a live video while singing along to a track. It has now rolled out Lip Sync Live to all profiles in many countries, and it has opened up the feature to more artists and creators by expanding to Facebook Pages.Using Lip Sync Live, boy band Why Don’t We on Tuesday shared a performance of “8 Letters,” from their debut album of the same name, and English singer Jess Glynne used it to share a video of her lip-syncing her new single, “Thursday.”Based on user feedback, Facebook also is starting to add lyrics to Lip Sync Live. Initially, lyrics are available for songs including Dua Lipa’s “New Rules,” Khalid’s “Better” and “Girls Like You” by Maroon 5.And Facebook will soon be launching the ability to add songs to a new music section on users’ profile (pictured, top), which also will let you pin a song to the top of your profile.Songs added to profiles “will visually showcase the artist and track you choose,” according to Facebook. When someone plays a song on your profile, they’ll hear a portion of the song and see an accompanying video featuring photos of the artists and album art. They can then choose to add the song to their own profile or visit the artist’s Facebook Page.Facebook’s music efforts are led by Tamara Hrivnak, head of music business development and partnerships (who is a former WMG and Google exec), and Fred Beteille, head of product, music and rights (also formerly with Google/YouTube).last_img read more

University of Cyprus expects economy to expand 31 in 2017

first_imgThe University of Cyprus said it expects the economy to expand 3.1 per cent this year, boosted by an unusually strong economic performance in the first quarter, and consumer prices to rise 1.7 per cent.“In the first quarter of 2017, real GDP (gross domestic product) is projected to rise (an annual) 3.5 per cent and in the second quarter, GDP growth is forecasted at 3.1 per cent, the Economic Research Centre (ERC) of the university said in a statement on its website on Wednesday.“In the second half of 2017, real activity is forecasted to grow 3 per cent. The projected inflation rate in 2017 also reflects base effects due to the relatively low general price level registered in 2016”.The ERC cited its forecast on improving labour market figures and leading indicators, less adverse domestic financial conditions, lower lending rates both at home and in the euro area, strong fiscal results, the decline of domestic price level in past years and “less adverse domestic financial conditions as the normalisation process of the domestic banking sector has progressed and lending interest rates have declined further”.In addition, favourable external economic conditions accompanied by better economic sentiment in the European Union and the euro area, a stronger than expected economic performance in the UK, Cyprus’s main source of incoming tourism, following last year’s Brexit referendum and a moderation of Russia’s economic recession will also contribute towards stronger growth, the ERC said.The ERC’s growth forecast exceeds the latest projection of the finance ministry which expects the economy to expand 2.9 per cent this year. Still, growth is facing risks related mostly to the banks and debt levels and the lack of structural reforms as political parties are gearing up for the February presidential elections. Fiscal relaxation could undermine both public finances and growth.“In conditions of elevated unemployment and subdued property prices, the high levels of private debt and non-performing loans continue to pose risks to the economy, despite progress with deleveraging and loan restructurings,” the academic institution said. “Ineffective implementation of the available legal tools heightens the risks arising from the banking sector”.Cyprus’s high public debt, seen at 107.8 per cent of economic output last year, renders the Cypriot economy which emerged in 2015 from a recession and expanded last year 2.8 per cent, “vulnerable to negative shocks,” the ERC said. Also, a slowdown in the UK’s economic performance accompanied by a further weakening of the pound vis-à-vis the common European currency as a result of the uncertainty sparked by the Brexit vote, could also impact Cyprus’s economy negatively.On the other hand, a rebound of Russia’s economic performance on higher energy prices could further boost growth in Cyprus, the ERC said. “Moreover, public infrastructure projects and private investment decisions (related to energy, tourism, shipping, real estate) could boost the economy’s prospects.

US Turkeys harassment of drilling vessels will not go unnoticed Updated

first_imgA US State Department official said the harassment of drilling vessels by Turkey inside Cyprus’ exclusive economic zone would not go unnoticed, as he reiterated his country’s support for a bizonal federation as the form of the island’s reunification.“I think what we have to do on Cyprus specifically, and I was just there recently meeting with leaders on both sides of the island, is remain engaged in the process towards a bizonal, bicommunal federation, that remains a priority, we’re very actively involved there, and I will be going back there this fall,” said Wess Mitchell, Assistant Secretary of State for European and Eurasian Affairs.Mitchell, who was giving a speech at the Heritage Foundation public policy research institute, was also asked about the heightened tension in the area due to Ankara’s refusal to recognise Cyprus’ right to carry out hydrocarbon exploration within its EEZ.“We’ve been clear in our messaging with Turkish officials that harassment of drilling vessels in the Cyprus EEZ is not something that we will allow to go unnoticed or not speak up about,” Mitchell said.His comments were welcomed by the government in Cyprus, with spokesman Prodromos Prodromou saying the message Mitchell sent out was “very important.”Speaking on the state broadcaster, the government spokesman said that “in diplomatic language what Mr Mitchell said is a clear indication of US intention.”The statement from the US official suggested they would not stand by if Turkey harassed drilling vessels in Cyprus’ EEZ and through making these comments public, the US was already taking action, Prodromou said.In February, Turkish warships prevented Italian energy company ENI from drilling in a field inside block 6 of the Republic’s ΕΕΖ.Turkey argues it is safeguarding the rights of Turkish Cypriots, but it also has its own claims inside Cyprus’ EEZ.The government has made it clear that it recognises Turkish Cypriot rights, which they can exercise as part of the island’s reunification.Mitchell said the US was also working on building a strong political relationship with Cyprus particularly in the counter-terrorism and security realms.“There’s a lot we are doing for example on Russian disinformation, the challenge of Russian money on Cyprus is a very well-known issue.”Meanwhile on Wednesday, media in the north reported that the Turkish drillship Fatih, formerly DeepSea Metro II, had arrived at Antalya in Turkey with the intention of heading at some point soon for the Eastern Mediterranean to begin deep-sea drilling, possibly close to or inside Cyprus’ EEZ.The reports said Fatih would likely begin its first drilling mission at the end of the summer just as US giants ExxonMobil are due to drill around October in block 10 of the EEZ, though this is one block Turkey does not lay any claim to.Prodromou said they were willing to restart negotiations from where they left off in Crans-Montana, Switzerland, after the elections in Turkey are over.    You May LikePics15 Best Dog Breeds For SeniorsPicsUndo4mylikes.comMost Beautiful Cat Breeds in the World4mylikes.comUndoluxworld.infoHigh Tech Outdoor Camping Gear & Gadgetsluxworld.infoUndo At least 20 killed, 50 injured in attack on VP candidate’s office in KabulUndoUK plays Brexit hardball with ‘stubborn’ EUUndoFour dead in California garlic festival shootingUndoby Taboolaby Taboolalast_img read more
