CrossPlatform Magazine Advertising Up 6 Percent

first_imgMagazines saw combined ad units for print and tablet products grow 6 percent in 2013, according to a joint study by Kantar Media and the MPA—The Association for Magazine Media.Measuring 69 publications that have both print and tablet products, the report found tablet unit sales up 16 percent year-over-year. Print ad pages were flat though, rising just 0.1 percent for the selected titles in 2013.”These numbers prove, once again, that this business is about powerful, relevant and enduring brands,” says Mary Berner, president and CEO of the MPA, in a statement. “Despite erroneous, lemming-like coverage of declines, magazine media, has not, in fact, ever had an audience problem, and it is gratifying to see that advertisers are increasingly realizing that.”The full-year report follows a first-half study by the MPA released in July. That study, which only tracked iPads, found that tablet ad unit sales were up 24.5 percent through the first six months of 2013. iPad ad units accounted for more than a third of total print and tablet ads for the 58 titles measured in the report.last_img read more

WWE news Roman Reigns bags huge Netflix acting role

first_imgReigns was off WWE television ever since he announced his health condition, back on October 22. He even gave up his Universal Championship and informed that he’d be stepping away from the action to undergo treatment for leukaemia – a disease he has been dealing with for over 11 years. He was in Hawaii earlier this year, and in a recent post put out by The Rock, it was revealed that he is featuring in Fast & Furious spin-off, Hobbs & Shaw. Thumbs up to Charlotte versus Ronda Rousey versus Becky LynchReigns has always been a vocal supporter of women WWE wrestlers and in a recent interview with Sky Sports, he expressed his happiness that three women will be headlining WWE’s biggest night of the year for the first time in history: Roman Reigns (L) with his daughter Joelle Anoa’i (R) at an event in Santa Monica on July, 2018Emma McIntyre/Getty Images”What better way to showcase what we’ve been doing for years with our women? I stand firmly behind these strong women and I’m so proud of them and the strength and the determination they’ve shown. They’re role models for our own children. My daughter is 11 years old and these women are showing her the way and showing her that women can do anything men can do, even better sometimes,” he said.”They’re all great examples and if women can handle giving birth and all of the crazy things that come along with nurturing life then why can’t they main-event a sports entertainment show? They can do everything that is super-hard in life and I know they can knock that out of the park too,” he further added. Ever since his return to the ring, Roman Reigns has been hogging all the headlines for all the right reasons. From his entry into WrestleMania to the reunion of the Shield, the former WWE champion is creating all the right noises.  File photo of Roman Reigns.Lukas Schulze/Bongarts/Getty ImagesNow, after the announcement which was made earlier this year of him making the Hollywood acting debut alongside the Rock in Hobbs & Shaw, which is a spin-off of Fast and Furious, Reigns has now been snapped up in another high profile role – this time it is a Netflix feature. Actress Candace Smith, who is quite a prominent face and who has appeared in shows like Heroes as well as Entourage & Joey, recently took to Instagram to break the news that she along with Roman Reigns will be the stars of a Netflix-exclusive comedy show – The Wrong Missy.Hobbs & Shaw is slated to be released later this year, and now the WWE superstar has three high-profile releases lines up in 2019. last_img read more

IndiGos regional flights may take off by November Report

first_imgIndiGo AirlinesReuters filePassengers can look forward to cheaper air travel from November this year in the southern parts of the country, thanks to plans by low-cost carrier IndiGo. The services could commence as early as November this year and are likely expand to other regions when the carrier also joins its rivals to fly under the regional connectivity scheme (RCS, also known as UDAN, which stands for Ude Desh Ka Aam Nagrik).”By November, the operations should start, I think we will be flying in south India first,” the Mint quoted an IndiGo executive as saying. The company had placed an order for 50 ATR 72-600 aircraft for the purpose, as confirmed while announcing the Q4 and FY2017 results in May.Also read: SpiceJet maintains gains; ‘UDAN’ launched by PM ModiThe company’s current fleet comprises 170 A320 aircraft that are deployed to operate about 930 flights daily; the ATR 72-600 aircraft would enable the carrier to take advantage of the lucrative RCS scheme when bids are likely to open for the second round of route allotment shortly, the daily said.The southern parts of the country offer a “natural fit” for IndiGo’s planned regional flight services since most of the existing players in the space such as Air Costa, Air Carnival and Air Pegasus are facing problems for more than a year now, the Mint reported. For 2016-17, Interglobe Aviation, which owns IndiGo, reported 16.5 percent fall in net profit to Rs 1,659 crore while revenues rose 15.1 percent to Rs 18,580 crore. The company declared a dividend of Rs 34 per share for 2016-17.The UDAN scheme envisages short-duration flight services at affordable costs. The airfare for a one-hour journey of 500 km has been capped at Rs 2,500. Five carriers will be operating along 128 routes across India under the scheme. SpiceJet, Air Deccan, Turbo Megha and two other operators will be flying the low-fare services. The scheme was formally launched in April this year.last_img read more

State moves to help tea workers get dues

first_imgJalpaiguri: The labour department on Friday initiated the process of clearing the dues of workers employed in some tea estates of Jalpaiguri and Alipurduar, a month after the Supreme Court passed a directive instructing state governments to clear a portion of such arrears. On Friday, Pashupati Ghosh, the additional labour commissioner of the state and some other officials of his department, held a meeting with tea trade unions here and elaborated on the plan that has been made by the state to pay the dues, mostly wages. Also Read – Heavy rain hits traffic, flightsSources said there are 28 tea estates – closed, sick and open – where the workers are yet to get the dues.On April 4 this year, a bench of Justices S.A. Bobde and L. Nageswara Rao of the Supreme Court had asked the governments of Bengal, Assam, Kerala and Tamil Nadu to pay the amount within 60 days.The dues have remained unpaid for as many as 15 years, said sources. Under the order, the total due in Bengal is around Rs 30 crore, of which the state will have to pay Rs 15 crore, said Ghosh.”We have handed over a format to the trade union leaders. They will visit the concerned workers and their families and help them in filling up the form. The forms would be submitted at the offices of our departments,” the official said.last_img read more

What you should do after the September 2018 Facebook Hack

first_imgWhat you should do after the September 2018 Facebook Hack by Martin Brinkmann on September 29, 2018 in Companies, Facebook – 34 commentsFacebook revealed on September 28, 2018 that attackers managed to exploit a vulnerability on the site that allowed them to take over accounts of Facebook users.The issue, which affected about 50 million Facebook accounts and potentially 50 million more, used a vulnerability in Facebook’s “View As” feature that allows Facebook users to view their profile pages as another user.Facebook users need to select the “three dots” menu on their profile page and select the “View As” option displayed as an option when they do.The company turned the feature for now. A notification is displayed to you that the feature has been disabled for the time being.”Preview My Profile” DisabledThe “Preview My Profile” feature is temporarily disabled. Please try again later.The attackers managed to obtain access tokens which allow anyone to access an account even without supplying a password.Facebook’s analysis is ongoing at this point in time. The company reacted fast and reset access tokens for affected accounts (nearly 50 million’), and reset access tokens for another 40 million accounts that interacted with View As in the past year.Investigators have not determined yet whether accounts were misused or if information was accessed. The company plans to update the official security update post on its website once it has more information.What you may want to doThe attackers managed to gain access to access tokens only. That is why Facebook does not recommend to users to change account passwords as the attackers never got hold of account passwords.The resetting of the access token blocks access to the Facebook account for anyone who is trying to access it using the old access token.Facebook displays a login prompt for affected users and a new sign-in to the account generates a new access token that is used from that point on forward.Facebook users affected by the issue receive a notification about the incident on the next sign-in.Still, there are some things that you may want to do:1. Check the last loginsGo to and check the devices and locations listed under “where you’re logged in”.Make sure that you only see devices and locations there that match your activity. Do the following if you suspect that a logged in session may be by a third-party:Click on the three dots on the right of that particular session.Select Log Out from the menu.If you want to start clean, select “log out of all sessions” instead to block any device listed there but the active one from using the access token to access Facebook.2. PrecautionsFacebook supports options to better secure an account.Get Alerts about unrecognized logins — Facebook notifies you when it notices logins from devices or browsers that you have not used in the past.

Remove any device or browser on the list that you don’t use anymore or don’t have access to.Two-factor authentication — Adds an extra layer of protection to the account. It was discovered recently, however, that Facebook will use the phone number for advertising purposes (advertisers upload lists of phone numbers, and if your phone number is on that list, you will be served ads from that advertiser).You may also want to be extra careful when it comes to emails or phone calls if you have been affected by the issue. If attackers gained access to the account, they had access to emails, your name, and other personal information that they might use in target phishing or social engineering attacks.SummaryArticle NameWhat you should do after the September 2018 Facebook HackDescriptionFacebook revealed on September 28, 2018 that attackers managed to exploit a vulnerability on the site that allowed them to take over accounts of Facebook users.Author Martin BrinkmannPublisher Ghacks Technology NewsLogo Advertisementlast_img read more

BuzzFeed Report Googles sexual misconduct policy does not apply retroactively to claims

first_imgOn 8th November, Google updated its sexual misconduct policy in response to the #GoogleWalkout that protested the discrimination, racism, and sexual harassment that employees encountered at Google’s workplace. Following this, Sundar Pichai announced a ‘comprehensive’ plan to incorporate transparency into how employees raise concerns and how Google will handle them. One of the main points publicized to a great extent was that Google eliminated forced arbitration in cases of sexual harassment. Now, fresh reports have emerged that Richard Hoyer, a lawyer for Loretta Lee, the ex-Google software engineer who filed a sexual harassment, gender discrimination, and wrongful termination suit against her former employer earlier this year, told BuzzFeed News that a Google attorney stated the policy change would not apply to her ongoing case. Google lawyer Brian Johnsrud sent an email (reviewed by Buzzfeed) to Hoyer last Friday which stated, “Google announced a prospective policy change which applies going forward to individual sex harassment as well as sex assault claims. This kind of policy change does not apply retroactively to claims already compelled to arbitration.” In response to this claim, Hoyer told Buzzfeed that “Google says, ‘We will not force employees into arbitration,’ and [the] response to me taking them up on that is, ‘Oh, we didn’t say when.’ It was a shock to see Google renege on the announcement that [the company] went through a lot of effort to publicize.” Loretta Lee’s suit, filed in February 2018, alleges she was “ routinely sexually harassed”  without any intervention on Google’s part to stop the harassment. The suit further states that male coworkers spiked her drinks with alcohol, one male co-worker messaged her to ask for a “horizontal hug”; and that at a holiday party, a drunk male coworker slapped her. According to the lawsuit, she found a male coworker hiding under her desk and “believed he may have installed some type of camera or similar device under her desk”. Post the complaint filed in the HR department of Google, the lawsuit states that Lee’s male co-workers retaliated against her. They refused to approve her code and stalled her projects, thus making it more difficult for her to succeed at work. In September 2018, the Lee case was compelled into arbitration. Hoyer, told BuzzFeed News that there still would have been time to appeal the court’s order compelling arbitration. On the day of Google’s announcement to end forced arbitration, Hoyer contacted Google’s lawyer to say Lee elected not to arbitrate her claims. According to emails reviewed by BuzzFeed News, Google’s lawyer delayed the reply for a week and finally stated that the company would still force arbitration for her case. Apparently, the reply was received on the very last day that Lee could have appealed. According to Buzzfeed, the email exchange between Hoyer and Johnsrud showed that in October, Lee sought to negotiate a monetary settlement with Google. The reply received from Johnsrud was not befitting at all:  “I was surprised to receive your voicemail making a settlement demand after Ms. Lee has tried to trash Google in the press and avoid arbitration.” He further added that unless Lee substantially reduced her settlement demand, Google would prefer to proceed with arbitration. Private arbitration often shields a firm from workers airing their grievances in open court, and also results in lower-cost settlements between the oppressed worker and the employer. In mandated arbitration, there are no rules of evidence and there is no public access to what happens as compared to a traditional court settling. Many cases of mandated arbitration have not lead to a fair settlement between the employer and employee. Google’s roll back on its policy statement in Lee’s case looks like a massive discouragement for workers suffering from sexual harassment at other workplaces.

Act now for Sydneys second airport IATA warning

first_imgSource = e-Travel Blackboard: G.A The date and location of a second airport for Sydney needs to be decided now, the International Air Transport Association (IATA) boss said yesterday.Arriving in the middle of Australia’s “government uncertainty”, IATA Director General Giovanni Bisignani issued a warning to the new government advising them to take urgent action after half a decade of studies on the issue.”The clock is ticking,” he told the National Aviation Press Club in Sydney, before heading to a meeting with Labor Minister for Transport Anthony Albanese.“Even 20 years is a tight timeline,” he said.“Kingsford Smith will reach a point where it will not be able to handle Sydney’s needs. “Whether you believe that will happen in 10 years or in 20 years, a decision on the next airport is now critical,” he said, highlighting the urgency of the issue due to its associated road and transport infrastructure.A spokesperson from Mr Albanese’s office told e-Travel Blackboard that a taskforce set up to “develop a strategic plan for meeting the future aviation needs for the Sydney region” was due to announce its results in 2011, but is dependent on the outcome of the recent election.“Should the Liberal Party come to power it’s likely the issue will be put on the back burner…the Liberal Party think Sydney Airport will be fine for another 30 years,” they said.The IATA boss also slammed Sydney Airport’s charges given the recent state of the aviation industry.According to Mr Bisginani, Sydney Airport’s earnings jumped 82 per cent last year, while airlines lost $10 billion.Mr Bisignani pointed to a report that ranked Sydney’s airport as the 9th most expensive airport in the world last year, jumping from 34th place in 2000.”Logically airlines and airports should be profitable, but airports are also monopolies that must be effectively regulated,” Mr Bisignani said, supporting a decision by the Labor government to instate a Productivity Commission review of airport regulation. Mr Bisignani’s statements coincided with the MAp Group, the majority owner of Sydney Airport, announcement of an 18 per cent increase in earnings to $205 million for the year to June.last_img read more

Hollywood actor Robert Redfords ultimate New Zealand Paradise

first_imgNew Zealand is set to star in a new movie fantasy, this time as the home of Disney’s Pete’s Dragon which released worldwide in August 2016.A reimagining of Disney’s cherished family classic Pete’s Dragon is the adventure of an orphaned boy named Pete and his best friend – a lovable dragon named Elliot. The film is directed by David Lowery and stars Bryce Dallas Howard, Oakes Fegley, Wes Bentley, New Zealand’s own Karl Urban, Oona Laurence and Robert Redford. In Pete’s Dragon, New Zealand plays Millhaven, an American Pacific Northwest logging town.The film was shot over both New Zealand’s main islands, the North and the South, showcasing diverse landscapes. The four regions showcased were Rotorua, central North Island; Wellington, lower North Island; Queenstown, southern South Island and Tapanui, lower South Island.“New Zealand is a country with a smile on its face,” said Robert Redford.Superstar actor and Sundance founder Robert Redford spent several weeks in New Zealand while filming Disney’s Pete’s Dragon, shooting many of his scenes in the fishing town of Tapanui in the South Island.The Redford family stayed for a long weekend enjoying New Zealand’s most sought after scenery and the luxuries of a fine contemporary New Zealand home.“It was a very attractive place to be, you couldn’t help smile when you were there and it was a wonderful experience for that reason,” Robert Redford said.A short helicopter flight west from Tapanui is a place called Paradise. Some say it was named for its stunning scenery; others argue that it’s all to do with the paradise ducks that live in the area. Either way, what everyone agrees on is that Paradise is exactly that – so, it’s no surprise that Robert Redford elected to enjoy a luxury escape here with his family.Immersed in a landscape that has captured the eye of many filmmakers, Wyuna House is a luxury villa set in a private natural reserve. Perched on the northern end of Lake Wakatipu, the schist and timber lodge has been designed to blend harmoniously into its beautiful alpine setting. Just across the road from Wyuna House, the Redford family dined at New Zealand’s celebrated Blanket Bay Lodge. The 13-room lodge has panoramic lake views and an award-winning kitchen – both of which have helped gain many awards, including being named as the ‘World’s Ultimate Escape’ by the UK Sunday Times Magazine.“I love being in New Zealand and the fact I was able to be in a helicopter with a great pilot that took you up to the glacier, up the valley, and to the sea – he took you everywhere you could possibly be so you could see all of what New Zealand had to offer. That was a big moment for me, it was just mesmerising,” Robert Redford said.Visitors who make it to Paradise Valley enter a very special place where glorious isolation, natural grandeur, and a magnificent palette are combined in perfect balance. Robert Redford and family spent a lot of their time outdoors exploring the native forest and quiet green pastures on horseback at Dart Stables – one of the star’s long-time passions.The region is one of New Zealand’s most popular destinations for hikers and nature lovers, with more than 19 day walks to explore. The Redford family went on several local trails including the Diamond Creek walk.“It’s a country that appreciates itself as a country, as a landscape. Making the film was one thing, but experiencing New Zealand outside the film was another and I really loved it,” Robert Redford said.Alpine resort Queenstown – the nearest main centre to Paradise – is a lively year-round tourist destination, rated internationally as one of the world’s top holiday spots.Adventure and indulgence go hand-in-hand in Queenstown, which boasts some of New Zealand’s best luxury accommodation, world-class golf courses and thrilling activities set in dramatic alpine landscapes.Glenorchy, a 45-minute drive from Queenstown, is on the road to Paradise and along a route that has been lauded as one of the ‘Top Eight Scenic Drives’ in the world.last_img read more

Cartoon protest outside Kibris office

first_imgAround 80 hard-line, Turkish nationalists gathered outside the offices of Kibris Media Group in the north on Sunday morning, to protest about a cartoon published by the group’s daily newspaper last May.Members of the Rebirth Party (YDP) and of more than 10 non-governmental organisations established by Turkish settlers in the north, laid black wreaths in front of the building and demanded the cartoonist was sacked. They also demanded that Kibris newspaper apologised for what they described as a “racist” and “divisive” cartoon.The cartoon in question portrays a tourist ship arriving in the north from which exit men holding assault weapons. Its aim was to satirise the fact that courts in the north were dealing with many cases of people that arrived as tourists but ended up being involved in crimes. One such case concerned a man who tried to rob a bus, two hours after arriving in the north.Although there was no suggestion in the cartoon of the nationality of the people arriving, the protesting groups felt that it was portraying immigrants from Turkey as criminals. Protesters carried flags of Turkey and of the breakaway regime and chanted slogans such as “Cyprus is Turkish, it will remain Turkish”.In a written statement, read during the protest by YDP General Secretary Bertan Zaroglu, the daily was accused of being “ungrateful” for publishing such a cartoon after Turkey saved the lives of many Turkish Cypriots and helped them survive by giving them money.You May LikeFigLeaf Beta AppHow to Become Fully Anonymous Online in Less Than 3 Minutes?
