first_imgHaving created quite a ruckus by deciding to leave the Indian football squad just days before the team departs for the 2011 Asian Cup in Doha, manager Pradeep Chowdhury tried to clear the air on Saturday.Chowdhury called a team meeting and said that although he had issues with national coach Bob Houghton, that wasn’t the sole reason behind his decision to return to India.Speaking to MAIL TODAY, a team official said that the players were quite surprised when Chowdhury, who has otherwise remained aloof since joining the players a week ago, called them just minutes before the team left for their morning training session.”Chowdhury called the players for a meeting and although they were taken aback initially as they were busy getting on to the team bus, they all decided to go ahead and give him a sound hearing.”In the meeting, he said that although he had issues with Houghton, that wasn’t the reason behind his decision to return home.”Having joined the team a week back, he said that he had some pending work and also some health issues which forced him to take the call.” However, the official said that Chowdhury had initially decided to leave without informing any of the players or the team management.”It was Bhaichung Bhutia who confronted Chowdhury on Friday after dinner and that is when he came clean and said that he couldn’t take it anymore and was heading home,” he said.”He has been with team for more than four years now and every player is disappointed that he couldn’t look at the wider picture and stay with the team at a time when India’s first match in the Asian Cup against Australia on January 10 is about two weeks away.” Defender Gouramangi Singh feels that at a time when the players were regaining confidence after the drubbing in the recent friendlies, such an incident could have easily been avoided.advertisement”Pradip da has been an inspiration for us and till now he has always maintained that Houghton was the best thing to happen to Indian football. Now that he has issues, he suddenly decides to abandon the team.This isn’t something we expected from him.”The team’s morale was anyway down after the recent defeats and just when we were looking to bounce back, this incident once again hit us. But we won’t let this incident affect our preparations and we will ensure that when we reach Doha, we are fully prepared,” Gouramangi told M AIL T ODAY from Dubai.”When so many people – 30 players and quite a few officials – stay together as a family, issues are bound to take place.But do we abandon our family mid- way if we have problems with them? It is sad that he didn’t feel the need to stay with the team when we need senior figures like him with us.” Syed Rahim Nabi echoed Gouramangi’s sentiments saying that if Chowdhury had issues with Houghton, he should have left earlier rather than waiting for so long.”I can understand that he had issues with Houghton. But why did he wait so long before making his displeasure public? He should have left right at the start rather than waiting for so long. This won’t augur well for the morale of the team,” he said.Meanwhile, a senior member in the team said that although Houghton would name the 23- member squad for the Asian Cup on Monday, the seven players omitted were free to stay with the team.”Houghton has said that while he will be picking the 23- member squad on Monday, the rest of the 30- member squad could stay back before we leave for Doha on January 6,” he said.Commenting on the fitness of key players, the player said: ” Bhutia looks in doubt for the showpiece event although he will surely travel to Doha. As for Sunil Chhetri, he has started training with us after an injury to his big toe on his left foot.”Even Samir Naik, who has been perennially injured since the Nehru Cup, has started training although he is yet to join the rest of the players.”last_img read more

first_imgGautam Gambhir broke Suresh Raina’s record for most fifties in the Indian Premier League at the Eden Gardens tonight.KKR skipper Gambhir smashed a stylish 64 off 52 balls against defending champions Mumbai Indians and added 100 runs with Manish Pandey (52) for the second wicket. This was his 27th fifty which is now a new record in the cash-rich league.Raina, formerly of the Chennai Super Kings, now captain of the Gujarat Lions, held the record previously with 26 fifties.Gambhir started off his Indian Premier League journey with the Delhi Daredevils but moved to KKR after 3 seasons in 2011 and found instant success, leading the Shah Rukh Khan-co-owned franchise to two IPL titles in the last five years.Besides, the southpaw has been in top form, leading from the front.Gambhir has scored consistently in the IPL since the inception of the league – 534 runs (2008), 286 runs (2009), 277 runs (2010), 378 runs (2011), 590 runs (2012), 406 runs (2013), 335 runs (2014) and 327 runs (2015).Dropped from the Indian team after a string of poor performances in 2013, Gambhir staged an unsuccessful comeback in England in 2014. However, his IPL form has been rich – he has so far scored 3235 runs from 119 matches and is the third-highest run-scorer in the league behind Raina (3719) and Rohit Sharma (3417).Here’s a list of the top five players with most fifties:Gautam Gambhir (Delhi Daredevils, Kolkata Knight Riders): 27Suresh Raina (Chennai Super Kings, Gujarat Lions): 26David Warner (Delhi Daredevils, Sunrisers Hyderabad): 26Rohit Sharma (Deccan Chargers, Mumbai Indians): 25Shikhar Dhawan (Deccan Chargers, Delhi Daredevils, Mumbai Indians, Sunrisers Hyderabad): 21last_img read more

first_imgATHENS — Panathinaikos ended Olympiakos’ 27-match unbeaten league run on March 2 with a stormy 3-0 away victory that was interrupted for long stretches by home fans who threw flares and other objects onto the pitch.After the game, Olympiakos fans took their frustration out on riot police, attacking them with whatever projectile was available. A police motorcycle was set on fire and police used tear gas to disperse the crowd.During the match, Panathinaikos coach Yiannis Anastasiou was hit in the face by a plastic cup full of liquid and ice cubes. Very little football was played in the last 12 minutes due to the missile-throwing after Olympiakos was awarded a penalty.“I feel a little dizzy, but I’m otherwise fine,” said Anastasiou, who compared the hostile atmosphere of the match to that of Olympiakos’ home victory over Manchester United in the Champions League.“I saw Tuesday’s game … and marveled at the fantastic atmosphere. Now, we have reverted back to our usual culture, where we (away teams) are not sure we will leave the field in one piece. What can I say,” added Anastasiou, who had a bandage over his left eye.Alejandro Dominguez missed the spotkick four minutes after it was awarded and the referee didn’t make up for time lost.In a separate incident, Olympiakos’ Michael Olaitan collapsed in the 30th minute and lay unconscious on the field for some time while being treated by both teams’ doctors. He was taken to hospital for checks, and was conscious when taken off on a stretcher.An Olympiakos official told TV channel Novasports after the game that Olaitan had injured his neck when falling on the pitch, but that he was feeling better.During the game, Panathinaikos packed the midfield and tried to hit Olympiakos on the break — a tactic that produced the visitors’ first two goals. In the 45th, a long pass found Marcus Berg inside the area and he laid the ball back for Danijel Pranjic to score with a drive from just outside the area.In the 67th, another long ball found Berg on the break and he outsprinted defender Avraam Papadopoulos before shooting past goalkeeper Roberto.In the 89th, when the game had temporarily resumed, Panathinaikos won a free kick on the left side and Mehdi Abeid found a gap in the wall to beat a motionless Roberto. Immediately afterward, a volley of flares had Panathinaikos goalkeeper Stefanos Kapino fleeing his own area for his safety.“Nothing turned out well for us today,” said a despondent Michel, the Olympiakos coach.Olympiakos midfielder David Fuster added: “We did not play like we should, but we should not linger over this. It was a bitter moment in an otherwise very good season.”Indeed, even after losing to its hated archrival, Olympiakos still has a 19-point lead with seven rounds remaining and is well on its way to winning a record 41st league championship, its 16th in 18 seasons, starting in 1996-97.Closest challenger PAOK squandered a 2-0 lead and allowed host Ergotelis to earn a 2-2 draw. This enabled Atromitos, a 3-1 winner at Panetolikos, to go level on points with second-place PAOK. Panathinaikos is fourth, five points behind Atromitos and PAOK. Asteras beat Panthrakikos 3-1 and Kalloni drew 1-1 at Panionios.(Demetris Nellas)TweetPinShare0 Shareslast_img read more

first_imgThe Pakistan Cricket Board has decided not to renew chief selector Inzamam-ul-Haq and coach Mickey Arthur’s contracts, which ends with the conclusion of World Cup in mid-July.Former captain Aamir Sohail is already being considered as the chief selector in place of Inzamam whose three-year contract will end in July.”Sohail’s name is top among the list of short-listed contenders. PCB’s managing director, Wasim Khan will make the decision on new appointments for the position of the chief selector and head coach,” a reliable source in the PCB told PTI.Sohail has in the past remained chief selector between 2002 and 2004.He said it had been decided in principle to make the changes regardless of how the national team fared in the World Cup which begins from May 30.”Changes will be made as to when Ehsan Mani took over as Chairman and then brought in Wasim Khan as MD there was nothing they could do about the key positions since there was little time left before the World Cup. But both are not very happy with some of the decisions taken by Inzamam and Arthur as chief selector and head coach,” the source said.He said it was yet to be decided whether a foreigner will replace Arthur or the choice will be a local player.”There is even a lobby in the board which has talked about making Inzamam the head coach after the World Cup,” the source said.Inzamam is presently in England and will remain there until the match against India and according to the source, he will be involved in finalisation of the playing XI for all the matches now.advertisementInterestingly Arthur, who has been with the Pakistan team since 2016, had inquired before the World Cup if they were planning to give him an extension in his contract as he was interested in settling down for another term with the national team.”But Mickey was told a decision would be made later he should focus on the World Cup.”The source said whoever is appointed head coach will bring in his support staff.Another former Test player, Saleem Jaffer, is also in line to take over as chief selector of the national junior selection committee.Also Read | World Cup 2019: New Zealand and West Indies dark horses, say former starsAlso Read | World Cup 2007: Australia create history with a hat-trick of World Cup winsAlso Seelast_img read more

first_imgSASKATOON – A Saskatchewan woman says she lost a finger after her ring got caught on a waterslide at one of the largest malls in North America.Claire Clark was celebrating her granddaughter’s third birthday at West Edmonton Mall’s water park on Aug. 5 when Clark decided to take a ride on a slide called the Corkscrew.She said she was grabbing onto a thin piece of mesh and foam padding at the top to push herself down when she got snagged.“My ring caught on that thing that I grabbed and it ripped off my finger, and my finger went with it,” Clark said. “It was awful.”Clark said the skin on her right ring finger was torn at the first knuckle and there was only bone on the rest of the finger.Clark said she remembers going down the slide and holding her hand so that she wouldn’t get blood everywhere. She lifted it to make sure it didn’t go under the water.“Then I said to my husband, ‘We have to go get first aid. Look at my finger.’ And so I showed him my finger and I thought he was going to pass out because it’s kind of ugly.”Clark’s 28-year-old daughter found the finger and pointed it out to a lifeguard, who dove into the pool to retrieve it and the ring.A plastic surgeon at the University of Alberta hospital told Clark that there was nothing left to sew the finger back into and it had to be amputated. The surgeon did the procedure that day and Clark has six millimetres of her finger left.Clark, who has three children and five grandchildren, said her finger hurt a little bit after it happened, but not very much. She gets her stitches out on Monday.West Edmonton Mall said it was unable to comment on what happened because of an internal investigation.Clark wants the mall to advise people who are wearing jewelry to take it off before they go down the waterslides.She was working again at her job as a mobile mortgage specialist for RBC the same night she lost her finger and plans on seeing an occupational and physical therapist.She said she’ll never go to a water park again.“I didn’t lose my life. So I’m happy about that,” Clark said.“I’ll have tears once in awhile and I’ll wish I could get my finger back sometimes, but I don’t think I ever will.”— By Ryan McKenna in Regina.

first_imgVICTORIA — Business leaders say they’re concerned the British Columbia government’s budget pays too little attention to the potential impacts of a slowing global economy and a shifting housing market.B.C. Business Council president Greg D’Avignon says finance Minister Carole James is banking on robust economic growth to fund long-term social and environment programs amounting to $2 billion over the next three years.He says the council, which represents many of the largest employers in the province, credits the government for the initiatives that support families and environment programs, but the government is taking business for granted in a darkening economy. Real estate developer Jason Turcotte says the government depends on tax revenue from home sales to help fund its programs, but the budget hinders new property developments which create that wealth.James says B.C. is forecast to lead Canada in economic growth for the next two years and her budget has set aside more than $2.6 billion in contingency and allowance funds in the event of a downturn.Opposition Liberal Leader Andrew Wilkinson says the budget does nothing to stimulate the economy.

One third of the Asian nation’s population leads nomadic lives and depend entirely on livestock for a living. Urgent assistance of $6 million is needed over the next two or three months to help herders make it through to spring, a rapid needs assessment conducted by the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) found.Locally known as dzud, the extreme cold experienced in Mongolia – roughly the size of Western Europe – followed a very dry and long summer and fall, during which insufficient livestock feed was produced to provide to the animals for the winter months.If current conditions continue, the Government predicts that losses could reach 3-4 million head of livestock by spring. So far, it is estimated that economic losses have topped $60 million.Out of Mongolia’s 21 provinces, 14 are considered to have been seriously affected, with tens of thousands of families owning up to 300 head of livestock having lost over half their herds. Their cash income is plummeting and they face soaring fodder prices.If aid does not reach the country soon, spreading poverty will lead to mass migration to urban areas later this year, FAO warned.The agency’s Animal Production and Health Commission for Asia and the Pacific has provided 5,000 doses of medicinal food supplements for dairy cows, pregnant heifers and young bulls, and is also prepared to assist in disaster preparedness and risk reduction plans. 2 February 2010More than 20,000 families are at the risk of going hungry, as temperatures reaching as low as -50 degrees centrigrade have killed nearly two million head of livestock in Mongolia, the United Nations agriculture agency reported today. read more

A muslim convert known as Jihadi Jack has said he feels guilty about his parents’ conviction of funding terrorism after they sent him cash.Jack Letts, 23, left his middle-class home in Oxford in 2014 and became one of the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant’s (Isil) most notorious recruits before he was captured.  He is currently incarcerated in a jail run by Kurdish authorities in Northern Syria, but apologised to his parents and said he wants to return to the UK.He told Sky News: “I feel guilty because I’m the reason they are going through this.“They didn’t do anything wrong. They sent me money to leave. It’s not like they were funding some sort of terrorist activity.”Jack’s parents, Sally Lane and John Letts, were spared jail at the Old Bailey on Friday, when they were handed a sentence of 15 months, suspended for a year, for funding terrorism over a payment of £223 to a man in Lebanon in 2015 at Jack’s request. John Letts and Sally Lane, the parents of a Muslim convert dubbed Jihadi Jack After their sentencing, Ms Lane and Mr Letts spoke of their son’s obsessive approach to his Muslim faith, saying he was waking in the middle of the night to perfect his prayer, and scared that he would “go to hell” if he got it wrong.The former Cherwell School student was diagnosed with obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD) when he was a teenager, and turned to prayer as one of his OCD rituals.John Letts told the Mail on Sunday: “He was terrified that if he got anything wrong and didn’t start all over again he would go to hell.“He’d wake in the middle of the night for the pre-dawn prayer, but where that might take most Muslims a few minutes, he’d be up from 3am to 5am washing, praying, trying to get it right. He’d fall asleep in school and get into trouble.“I’m convinced this made him vulnerable to manipulation.”They also committed their continued support to their son, with Mr Letts adding:  “A father does not give up on his son, and I’ll never give up on Jack.” Letts added: “I was surprised they were convicted. They are definitely not Islamic fundamentalists. They are not even Muslims.“It’s two atheists convicted for Islamic terrorism – it doesn’t make much sense.”He said, although it seems unlikely, he would “love to go home”  and said he had “no intention of blowing [British people] up.” Want the best of The Telegraph direct to your email and WhatsApp?

first_img WAITERS AT A cheap and cheerful restaurant in central France have been worked off their feet since the eatery earned a coveted Michelin star by mistake, the daily Le Parisien reported Friday.“We’re swamped,” Veronique Jacquet, who runs the Bouche a Oreille (Word of Mouth) bar-restaurant in the town of Bourges, told the paper.“I don’t have much space and there are only four waiters,” said Jacquet, known as Vero to the regulars who pay €12.50 for homemade beef bourguignon, scarfing it down over red-and-white polkadot tablecloths.Guide Michelin France, which published its 2017 version last Thursday, mistook Jacquet’s place for another restaurant of the same name.It took nearly a week to correct the error on its website.“We apologised to the two establishments and we are sorry to have misled our clients,” the guide’s Claire Dorland-Clauzel told Le Parisien.The mistake showed up only on the website, and not in the iconic red print version or on the mobile app of the foodie bible that can make or break aspiring top chefs with its system of awarding up to three stars to the finest restaurants.The other Bouche a Oreille is 180 km to the north, in Boutervilliers near Paris, with carpeted floors, fancy linen tablecloths and serves the likes of lobster flan, calf’s brain and a crunchy pear and chocolate concoction for dessert, complete with champagne, for €48.Chef Aymeric Dreux took the mistake in stride. “It was a little boo-boo that caused no harm and was corrected.”Dreux, who first earned the star in 2015, added: “I called (Jacquet) in Bourges. The whole thing made us laugh.”Jacquet’s cook Penelope Salmon, asked whether she ever dreamed of earning a Michelin star, said: “No, not at all. I cook with my heart.”© – AFP 2017Read: These five food businesses were served with closure orders last month >Read: Tayto manufacturer fined €2,000 under food safety laws > 46,999 Views Saturday 18 Feb 2017, 11:12 AM By AFP Short URL 26 Comments Homemade beef bourguignon is one of the local’s specialties.

first_img Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagram Greek Australian archaeologist Parry Kostocoglou believes he could have found Australia’s first currency exchange on the site of the city’s new Myers store. The Hobart archaeological consultant and his team have found coins and other artefacts more than 200-years-old at a dig on the CBD site, which will be redeveloped after fire destroyed the old store in 2007. “What’s really cool about the coins is that a lot of them are from overseas, they’re not just English coins,” he told AAP. “There’s Indian coins, there might be a Mexican silver dollar there and other coins that as yet haven’t been cleaned up, but they don’t look English.” A dig was ordered before building started because the site has been developed five times since white settlement in 1804. Convict period stoneware bottles, plates from China and gun flints from America are among the discoveries, but it’s the coins that could be the important find. “What that means is basically troops and people that came out on the first fleet (to Tasmania) were asked to empty their pockets and they collectivised the money and created a sort of ad hoc currency system because there was no existing system of trade,” Mr Kostoglou said. “One rupee equalled two Mexican silver dollars which equalled four shillings, so once they had that standard established all these coins were thrown in.” He says the find could be unique because the only other Australian colony rivalling Hobart in age, Sydney, was more carefully planned. “This one was hurriedly organised to stop the French getting their hooks into Van Diemen’s Land,” he said. “So it was rushed and they didn’t bring any money except what they had in their pockets.” The best items in the discovery will be part of a display in the new store. Mr Kostoglou says Hobart still has plenty of buried history because its lack of high-rise constructions means buildings are on slabs rather than anchored to the bedrock. “If it was put there it’ll still be there in some way, shape or form,” he said. “The irony is that it requires a development for it to be exposed.”last_img read more

Le texte de loi portant sur l’usurpation d’identité et concernant la carte d’identité biométrique a été publié au Journal officiel mercredi 28 mars. Mais le texte ne contient plus l’ensemble des articles déclarés inconstitutionnels la semaine dernière. Par exemple, le fichier central contenant l’ensemble des informations sur les personnes possédant cette pièce d’identité, ne fait plus partie de la nouvelle carte d’identité. La puce optionnelle appelée “signature électronique” disparaît également.La seule puce présente sur la carte d’identité biométrique permettra de sauvegarder des informations d’état civil telles que le nom de famille, le ou les prénoms, le sexe, la date et le lieu de naissance du demandeur, son nom d’usage, son domicile, sa taille et la couleur de ses yeux, ses empreintes digitales et sa photographie. Et les personnes pouvant accéder à ces données seront également “les agents chargés des missions de recherche et de contrôle de l’identité des personnes, de vérification de la validité et de l’authenticité des passeports et des cartes nationales d’identité électroniques”.Par contre, PC Inpact relève que le texte contient un renforcement des sanctions en cas d’attaques “d’une personne morale de droit public ou d’une personne morale de droit privé chargée d’une mission de service public” contre les systèmes d’information.

first_img“Getting manufacturers involved is one of the things we’re working on now, and we don’t have the perfect answer,” says French. “We’re trying to figure out the next best step. Our experience has been, it’s OK for a reader to see advertising from a manufacturer, they know they’re getting the magazine for nothing. The precedent has already been set. If there is an ad message in an online community it’s going to be OK, users realize without this the medium wouldn’t exist. Take the 50,000 people who got a magazine for the last 20 years. They didn’t know at the time but they were the beginnings of the community.”Geographic and Demographic TargetingMeanwhile, former Cygnus vice president of interactive Dave Iannone, founder of Web firm Go Forward Media and the architect of Cygnus’ Firehouse.com, is working toward monetizing a new set of social media sites. In 2009, Elsevier Public Safety acquired Iannone’s Firefighternation.com and brought Go Forward Media in to develop social media sites around JEMS (the Journal of Emergency Medical Services) and Law Officer. Today, JemsConnect has more than 10,000 members while LawOfficer Connect has more than 5,000 members.But the real push for the Elsevier social networks is going beyond their proprietary Ning platforms to wider social networks such as Facebook, where all three brands are approaching or exceeding more than 50,000 fans, according to Iannone. “One big story can drive traffic spikes of more than 50 percent,” he says. “JEMS recently had a story about a paramedic who died on the scene and it had more than one thousand shares on Facebook. That translates into tens of thousands of page-views. Our strategy is not to rely on any one single platform. We have the Ning-based Web site for the hardcore users and we have Facebook where people do surprising things, like link to a discussion on Firefighternation.com to read it, then come back to Facebook to discuss it. We can get more comments on Facebook about a discussion that’s actually on FirefighterNation.com. The days of one Web portal are over.”In terms of monetization, Elsevier and Go Forward sell fan pages to marketers for hundreds of dollars per month. “Once you’ve got them engaged with their customers and potential customers, they fully realize the full power of social media,” says Iannone.The three Elsevier sites are starting to offer geographically and demographically targeted advertising on a CPM basis and in 2010 will generate revenue in the seven figures, according to Iannone. “We’re looking at sizeable growth annually where we can be up there with the big boys at not much cost,” he adds. “Many consumer magazines have figured this out but b-to-b hasn’t been really taking advantage of social media. This stuff changes so quickly-if you thought the Web changed quickly, this is going to be even more rapid. If you haven’t caught up, you’re going to be in worse shape than you were with the Web 10 years ago.”Using Social Media To Take the Agency RoleFramingham, Massachusetts-based tech publisher IDG Communications is using social media to provide real-time market intelligence for its clients. In an expansion of its Strategic Marketing Services group, IDG has partnered with Networked Insights to launch IDG Social Scout—a service that uses proprietary analytics to track conversations around topics and brands and measures sentiment/engagement over time. Tapping Networked Insights’ proprietary “listening platform,” the IDG Social Scout service can track social conversations online in regard to specific topics chosen by IDG’s marketing clients, providing real-time data on how well those terms are resonating.After determining which topics its clients are most interested in learning about, IDG’s research team develops a community of sites based on conversational engagement and volume that the company will track on an ongoing basis. IDG provide clients with a benchmark report that includes their brand and three competitors. From there, it provides weekly metrics reports that show change in conversation, sentiment and key discussions.While still small in terms of overall revenue, social media services are becoming a significant revenue stream and IDG has struck seven figure deals around it, according to CEO Bob Carrigan. “Social media services have been tremendously successful from the user point of view but also the sponsorship point of view,” he says. “It’s not just great for revenue but every marketer wants to talk to us about this.”SIDEBARUsing Social Media to Market Face-to-FaceReal Simple’s 10th anniversary events get a boost from Facebook and Twitter.Real Simple, Time Inc.’s monthly women’s magazine touting quick-and-easy design, recipe and lifestyle tips, launched a dual-city 10th anniversary tour of the brand in Chicago and New York in April.The events, bolstered by a raft of sponsor partners, were supported by a significant social media outreach and participation campaign. “We wanted to have another outlet where we could let our users know about it and give them updated information, plus let everyone across the country feel involved,” says executive editor Kathleen Murray Harris.A separate Facebook group was created to divert the event-specific postings to its own forum—“We didn’t want to overwhelm the users on the primary page,” says Murray Harris—which collected more than 1,000 fans. From there, Real Simple and associated bloggers and a team of about a dozen tweeters were recruited for coverage.The #RS10 hashtag attained trending topic status “for about 15 minutes,” says Murray Harris, who estimates the social media coverage and almost 400 blog posts reached about 300,000 people, including 4,500 at the Chicago event.Those numbers translate into real impressions for advertisers and sponsors at the event, says Murray Harris, who added that the exposure eventually leads to actual ad buys and continued sponsor deals.A lesson the team learned at the Chicago event was to dial back the tweets. That’s an easy trap to make for location-based Twitter coverage—an enthusiastic stream of tweets from an event the majority of followers aren’t at can get overwhelming. “The initial feedback we got was that because we had people tweeting so often people that followed Real Simple asked us to back off a bit,” says Murray Harris. According to a 2009 Forrester Research study called “The Social Technographics of Business Buyers,” b-to-b buyers and decision makers are among the most active groups in social media. However, monetizing around that participation has been a struggle for b-to-b publishers.Still, turning social media into a revenue-generating business is a priority for many publishers in 2010. As Cygnus Business Media looks to build value after emerging from its Chapter 11 restructuring last year, one of its top priorities will be harnessing what CEO John French calls “social business media.”“Social media is the buzz word du jour but just like how everyone talked about Webinars and e-newsletters a couple years ago, everybody finds a new horse to ride,” he says. “We think social business media is as important as those previous developments but it’s a lot bigger. Business-to-business is a form of social media. The difference was in years past, it was done in print. We’ve gone from magazines delivering push content to getting the people out there to get together and talk.”The next step is figuring out how to monetize social media around communities such as Firehouse.com, Officer.com and EMSUnited.com. As part of the relaunch of its brand, Demers Ambulances wanted to create a social business media “buzz” and purchased an integrated package in order to reach a targeted group of EMS professionals that included ads, e-blasts, blogs booth space, podcasts and Webcasts on EMS Garage.last_img read more

first_imgA recent study indicates fires in the Yukon Flat region of Alaska are releasing more carbon into the atmosphere than previously thought.Download AudioThe study by University of Alaska Fairbanks scientists overturns old assumptions and paints a troubling portrait of future climate change.Alaska has seen record-breaking wildfire seasons in recent years. Credit: Division of Forestry. Healy fire.When you set out to model an ecosystem, it’s important to have data, a lot of data. That’s why UAF researchers Dave McGuire and Helene Genet were excited about a study in the Yukon Flats looking at charcoal deposits in lake-bed sediments. It gave them 1,200 years worth of data.Genet, McGuire and their colleagues wanted to model fire regimes in the region and how they effected the carbon cycle. The sediment data. McGuire says, were revealing.“Fire frequency has been greater in the last few decades than it’s been over the last 1,200 years. That suggest things are changing quite dramatically now.”Carbon is a key ingredient in global climate change. In nature, plants take up carbon dioxide and store it. Some of it is respired back to the atmosphere, but much of finds its way into soils.In the Arctic and subarctic, that carbon is often locked up for longer periods because of permafrost.Fires moving across the landscape can release a lot of carbon. And researchers assusmed released carbon spurred more plant growth, balancing the books. That assumption might be revised now.By modeling the effect of long-term fire history on the ecosystem, Genet says it looks like more carbon is being released than captured.“The way we have spun up the model before leads to an underestimation of the carbon loss in Interior Alaska or at least in regions that are exposed to fire regimes.”Genet and McGuire’s study just looks at the Yukon Flats. But if the same conditions occur in similar Arctic and sub-Arctic boreal forests, where roughly a third of the Earth’s terrestrial carbon is stored, the implications to climate change could be dire.last_img read more

first_imgClose Google has made its RCS chat available for Android users in France and the United Kingdom. However, this new messaging system that will soon replace SMS has no end-to-end encryption yet.   ( Pixabay ) Google has started the delivery of its next-generation messaging, Rich Communication Services. Android users in France and the UK will be first to experience RCS chat.RCS has been around for several years already and it was only recently that Google finally decided to go ahead with the service without waiting for local carriers to carry out the new messaging system.”We’d love work with our US carrier partners on RCS. Trying!!!! PS: RCS now fully rolled out in UK and FR. Next wave of countries soon,” tweeted Hiroshi Lockheimer, Google senior vice president, as he announced the services’ rollout.

Some 55 networks, 11 phone makers, and two operating system providers have agreed to support RCS. Any of the parties, carriers, OEMs, or OS providers can enable RCS services.Main Features Of RCSThe RCS or Chat as referred to by Google’s Android Messages app offers a majority of the features of a modern messaging app. Some of its notable features include the read-receipts capability, high-quality attachments, group messaging, and live typing indicators.RCS also enables users to send long texts without a character limit. It also allows sending of content and sharing of live location. It supports IP-based video and voice calling and network-based blacklisting as well.It will eventually replace SMS and MMS and will operate completely within a phone’s standard texting app. This new messaging system described as “SMS on steriods” aims to rival iPhone’s iMessage.However, unlike other similar internet-based messaging apps like Whatsapp and Signal, RCS lacks end-to-end encryption. Google said it is fully committed to finding a solution regarding the encryption feature.Downside Of This New Messaging SystemThe rollout will take place country-by-country, so there’s no official schedule yet for when Google will make the service available for most Android users worldwide.Since Google went ahead and cut out the carriers to make the RCS Chat work at the app level, it could also render the RCS Chat unusable. Each user in a conversation needs to have a phone that supports the standard for it to work, otherwise, SMS will remain as the default messaging app.With regard to privacy and security concerns, the lack of end-to-end encryption remains a crucial issue. Lastly, users won’t be able to start taking advantage of the RCS Chat until the local wireless carrier has activated the feature.
