Toni Braxton Presents Scholarship During UNCF Evening Of Stars

first_imgThe recent taping of UNCF An Evening of Stars marked a notable intersection of premier educational and nonprofit organizations with Hollywood superstars.R&B sensation and seven-time Grammy winner Toni Braxton presented a $10,000 scholarship, which she funded jointly with Autism Speaks, the world’s leading autism science and advocacy organization. Braxton, a global ambassador for Autism Speaks, became committed to raising awareness after the diagnosis of her son Diezel Ky Braxton-Lewis, now 12 years old. Award recipient Terence Brice, a college freshman who has autism, will use the scholarship toward his studies at Winthrop University’s Think College in Rock Hill, S.C.An estimated 1 in 68 children in the U.S. is on the autism spectrum. Autism is a group of complex developmental brain disorders – autism spectrum disorders – caused by a combination of genes and environmental influences. People with autism often struggle with verbal and nonverbal communication, social interaction, and repetitive behaviors.“We have to find ways to recognize and celebrate the abilities of people with autism,” said Braxton. “My son Diezel amazes me every day, and there are so many young people out there like him. We’re working to change the perception of autism, especially in communities of color.”Though autism can be reliably diagnosed between 18 months and 2 years of age, the average age of diagnosis is 4 to 5. Studies show children of color are likely to be diagnosed even later. Autism Speaks offers free online tools to help parents and caregivers recognize early signs of the disorder, and the organization connects families to resources in their own communities. The Autism Speaks Autism Response Team fielded 47,000 emails and calls last year alone. Autism Speaks also provides free Tool Kits for every stage of life.Autism Speaks has awarded more than $7.6 million in grants to organizations nationwide for development and expansion of community resources and services, as well as scholarships. That includes the Brian and Patricia Kelly Postsecondary Scholarship Fund, which granted $25,000 to the Winthrop University Think College Program. In that program, Terence Brice is learning both job skills and social skills needed in the workplace. His career goal is to work with computers. He plans to use the scholarship to fulfill post-school goals that involve working with computers and clerical work. He has an internship at Winthrop’s Dacus Library, where he checks books in and out and handles shelving, recycling and shredding.“I like using the shredder machine,” Brice said, which is about the size of a school bus. “I also like the big buildings and making new friends.”Braxton said, “Creating the first Autism Speaks-UNCF scholarship is an important way to draw attention to the skills and potential of people with autism and other special needs.”UNCF President and CEO Dr. Michael L. Lomax is excited about the partnership and the opportunity it provides to Terence and students like him.“We would like to shine a brighter light on students who have physical, developmental, learning and other disabilities,” said Lomax, who has a daughter with Down syndrome. “UNCF wants to see all students succeed and have the chance to aspire for postsecondary education, regardless of ability differences.”Autism Speaks has provided $5,000 toward the $10,000 scholarship award. Applicants must excel in the classroom and make a difference in their local communities.“It’s important to give all young adults the opportunity to pursue college or vocational education, and people with autism deserve that chance to succeed,” said Jamitha Fields, Autism Speaks vice president of community affairs. “Continuing education is critical to increasing their independence and helping them live their fullest lives.”This year’s UNCF An Evening of Stars show is also made possible by official sponsor, Target, and national sponsors McDonald’s and Wells Fargo. Buick is a major sponsor. The City of Atlanta, iHeartMedia Inc., BET Networks and Sinclair Broadcast Group serve as the city and media partners, respectively. The Walton Family Foundation and The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation are philanthropic partners.For the third consecutive year, Anthony Anderson (Black-ish) serves as the show’s host. Performers and top celebrities including Anderson, Kevin Hart, Usher, Chris Paul and Pharrell Williams, also make scholarship presentations during the show. Superstars Yolanda Adams, Big Sean, Toni Braxton, Kenneth “Babyface” Edmonds, Estelle featuring Jussie Smollett, K. Michelle, Kem, Mickey Guyton, Morris Day & The Time and Ronnie DeVoe all perform. For the third consecutive year, Jesse Collins, CEO of Jesse Collins Entertainment, returns to produce UNCF An Evening of Stars.last_img read more

Moroccan Police Seize 600 Kg of Cannabis Resin in Southern Morocco

Rabat – Police seized 600 kilograms of cannabis in Taghbalt, a rural area in Zagora, southern Morocco on Sunday, June 23.A statement from the General Directorate of National Security (DGSN) said that police arrested two suspects for their alleged involvement in a drug trafficking network.The suspects are aged 25 and 30. Police seized the cannabis, found in  sewage channels, in the rural district of Taghbalt after information provided from the General Directorate of Territorial Surveillance (DGST).The statement added that the search operation also enabled the seizure of a vehicle used to transport drugs.Police put the suspects in custody for further investigation into  possible accomplices also involved in the criminal network.DGST and DGSN have carried several operations throughout the year, their ongoing efforts have led to the seizure of significant quantities of illegal drugs  across the country.On June 12, police in Nador aborted a drug smuggling operation, seizing 12 tons and 800 kilograms of cannabis resin.In Agadir,  police also arrested a 21-year old university student for her alleged involvement in drug trafficking. The police said that the woman was in possession of 31,000 psychotropic tablets and 100 grams of cocaine.In 2018, Morocco’s government announced that the country has been adopting “a multi-dimensional national strategy to fight illegal drugs and is determined to  place civil society in the forefront of this national strategy.”#مكافحةشبكاﺕالمخدراتأمن زاكورة يحجز 600 كيلوغرام من مخدر الشيرا في قناة لصرف المياه العادمة بمنطقة قروية بضواحي “تازارين”. pic.twitter.com/VZstnH0uam— DGSN MAROC (@DGSN_MAROC) June 23, 2019Spokesperson of the Moroccan government Mustapha El Khalfi announced that over 107,000 people were prosecuted in drug-related cases in 2017.Morocco’s geographic location, El Khalfi said, makes it the focus of dangerous networks which actively promote various types of drugs. read more

Security Council voices outrage at latest assassination in Lebanon

In a statement to the press, Ambassador Giadalla Ettalhi of Libya, which holds the Council presidency this month, said it was “of the highest importance that the perpetrators, organizers and sponsors of this heinous crime are brought to justice.”Last Friday’s roadside explosion in eastern Beirut killed Captain Wissam Eid and several others as his convoy passed by.In today’s statement, Council members “reiterated their condemnation of all targeted assassinations of Lebanese leaders, particularly since October 2004, and demanded an immediate end to the continuous use of intimidation and violence against Lebanese officials and institutions, in this case the Internal Security Forces.”Stressing the importance of political dialogue and the unity of the Lebanese people, Mr. Ettalhi said the Council stood determined to help the Government pursue the case.The press statement echoes a statement from a spokesperson for Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon in which the UN chief deplored the bombing. 29 January 2008The Security Council today condemned last Friday’s terrorist bombing in Lebanon that took the life of a senior member of the country’s Internal Security Forces and also killed and injured several others, pledging to help the Government pursue the case. read more

The top ten games made possible by Kickstarter

first_imgEver since Double Fine announced their Kickstarter campaign, then met their goal in eight hours, then blew past their goal by almost $3 million, the fundraising site has been one of the biggest movements in gaming.Double Fine’s project certainly wasn’t the first game to show up on Kickstarter, but its wild success inspired a string of developers to seek funding directly from their audience. In a time when production costs have never been so high, Kickstarter lets developers work without fear of a financial bomb, while also letting die-hard fans be a part of the games they love.Looking at the top ten most funded Kickstarter games, you see lots of risks being taken, like old franchises being pulled out of retirement and young studios trying to make their first titles — and all of it is being made possible by backing from fans. Here’s a quick look at those top ten in reverse order, and what made each intriguing enough to meet its goal.Republique – $555,622 of $500,000 goalNote: Since this writing, Tex Murphy: Project Fedora has jumped to the #8 spot, pushing Republique out of the top ten.Half a million dollars may sound like a lot to develop a mobile game (and that’s only half the budget), but developer Camoflaj has big goals for their debut project: AAA quality, cutting edge graphics, real-time cinematics, and full voiceovers. Republique takes place in a 1984-style totalitarian state, where a trapped young woman named Hope makes a desperate phone call for help. Players must keep Hope alive (see what they did there?) by hacking into the nation’s surveillance system to scout her surroundings, slam doors on her pursuers, and call elevators so she can get around. The narrative setup should create some really gripping puzzles that combine communicating with Hope and manipulating her environment.Yogventures! – $567,665 of $250,000 goalAs you might guess from the name, Yogventures! is a project from the people behind the Yogscast YouTube channel. The team has spent a fair amount of time making videos in Minecraft, so it’s no surprise that their game is grounded in the idea of a vast, randomly generated, and highly shapeable world.So while you can expect to see the familiar Yogscast characters built in to Yogventures!, almost everything about the experience will be changeable and moddable. Yogscast and their partner Winterkewl Games are aiming to go beyond Minecraft’s blocky charm to a smoother, more stylized aesthetic, but without sacrificing all the exploring, building, and crafting of an open adventure world.Carmageddon: Reincarnation – $625,143 of $400,000 goalIn 1997, developer Stainless Games released the original Carmageddon, a violent vehicular combat game for the PC. The title was a financial success, and had a number of groundbreaking features, but when Stainless parted ways with their publisher they lost the rights to it. Since then the company has been focusing on creating downloadable titles like Risk: Factions and Magic: The Gathering – Duels of the Planeswalkers, but recently they reacquired the rights to Carmageddon and are eager to bring it back.Carmageddon: Reincarnation is already under development, and it’s a complete reboot of everything players loved about the original — just with 15 years worth of graphics and physics engine improvements.Leisure Suit Larry in the Land of the Lounge Lizards: Reloaded – $655,182 of $500,000 goalContinuing the “modern remake of a once-popular but long-abandoned game series” trend, developer Replay Games is rebooting the sexually-themed Leisure Suit Larry franchise, backed by creator Al Lowe and a number of the original developers.No longer constrained by the whims of a publisher, Replay is hoping to remake the original game with not only updated 2D graphics, but also more jokes, more puzzles, and animated cutscenes. The game’s classic point-and-click stylings should be a natural fit for the mobile platforms it’s planned for.The Banner Saga – $723,886 of $100,000 goalThe Banner Saga’s most obvious virtue is its gorgeous hand-drawn aesthetic and motion-captured animations, but it’s got a lot going for it beyond the visuals. The studio behind the game was founded by three former Star Wars: The Old Republic developers, who aspire (as you might expect from that pedigree) to tell a deep, mature story full of meaningful decisions and consequences. It also doesn’t hurt that the game’s score is being composed by Austin Wintory, who’s gotten a lot of praise for his work on the PSN-exclusive Journey.Zombicide – $781,597 of $20,000 goalThe Left4Dead games proved that zombies bring people together, even when tearing them apart. Zombicide takes that idea and drops it onto the tabletop, where 1-6 players control a group of survivors working together in urban environments. But unlike the Left4Dead games, Zombicide isn’t just about pushing forward and occasionally holding your ground; sometimes players will need to go on the offensive and take the fight to the undead, giving the gameplay a natural ebb and flow.The game’s comic book visual style is rounded out by some very detailed miniatures, which include multiple variations for even basic zombie types — a nice touch.Ogre – $923,680 of $20,000 goalIf you play board/card games on a regular basis, you’re probably familiar with Steve Jackson games, or at least their popular Munchkin series. So why does such a successful developer need a Kickstarter campaign? The company is looking to honor Steve’s first design, the futuristic war game Ogre, with a massive 14-pound “Designer’s Edition.”Since the new release will be expensive to produce, the company used the Kickstarter as a way to gauge interest and sell pre-orders, something they normally don’t do. Thanks to getting enough donations to meet their stretch goals, Steve Jackson Games announced that they’ll be able to double the originally planned play area.Shadowrun Returns – $1,836,447 of $400,000 goalThe cyberpunk/fantasy world of Shadowrun has appeared on a wide variety of platforms over the years, but it started life as a pen-and-paper RPG designed by Jordan Weisman in 1989. Now Weisman and his new company, Harebrained Schemes, are planning to bring the franchise back once more, this time to PCs, Macs, and tablets.Despite the modern platforms, Harebrained wants the game to do right by the original version and its fans. The turn-based gameplay will allow players to get the most out of the four character types (Street Samurai, Combat Mages, Hackers/Deckers, and Shaman), each of which have a different view of the world’s magical/technological overlappings. The developers also plan to release their level editor when the game launches, ensuring that Shadowrun Returns is a place where anyone can tell a story.Wasteland 2 – $2,933,252 of $900,000 goalBefore there was Fallout, there was Wasteland, the 1998 post-apocalyptic RPG that inspired it. But unlike Bethesda’s recent first-person takes on Fallout, inXile entertainment wants to revisit Wasteland while holding to the game’s top-down, turn-based, party-based tactical roots.Old hands from the original game and the first two Fallout titles are on board to make sure Wasteland 2 is a faithful exercise: Brian Fargo, executive producer of both Wasteland and Fallout; Alan Pavlish and Mike Stackpole, Wasteland’s primary designers; and Mark Morgan, who composed the music for Fallout 1 and 2.Double Fine Adventure – $3,336,371 of $400,000 goalComing full circle, the project that really got the ball rolling on using Kickstarter to fund game development remains at the top of the list with $3.3 million. Since the working title Double Fine Adventure is fairly nondescript, we know less about this game than any of the other top ten. But to fans of classic point-and-click adventure games, the only two development details that matter are Ron Gilbert and Tim Schafer — two LucasArts veterans who know the genre as well as anyone in the business.Whatever Double Fine Adventure turns out to be, expect it to be something special, but ultimately its legacy will be sparking a trend that gave many other games a chance at success.last_img read more

Barack Obama considère liPad et les consoles de jeux comme un danger

first_imgBarack Obama considère l’iPad et les consoles de jeux comme un danger pour l’informationÉtats-Unis – Barack Obama a fait part de sa méfiance vis-à-vis des nouvelles technologies, estimant que l’iPad comme les consoles de jeux exercent une véritable “pression” sur l’information et la démocratie.Le président américain ne voit pas d’un bon œil le développement des nouvelles technologies qu’il considère comme une diversion à l’information. Lors d’un discours qu’il a prononcé devant des étudiants de l’université d’Hampton, Barack Obama a en effet déclaré : “Avec les iPod, les iPad, les Xbox et PlayStation, dont j’ignore le fonctionnement, l’information devient une distraction, une diversion, une forme d’amusement plutôt qu’un outil d’épanouissement ou un moyen d’émancipation”.Critiquant certains médias, et notamment les blogs et stations de radio qui permettent à “certaines informations les plus folles” d’être rapidement relayées et amplifiées, Barack Obama se dit inquiet de voir les jeunes entrer dans un “monde où nous sommes bombardés d’informations en continu sur toutes sortes de sujets et qui nous exposent à toutes sortes d’argumentaires dont la véracité de certains est pour le moins douteuse”.Le président américain estime que cette surenchère de l’information, permise en grande partie par Internet, exerce une véritable pression sur chacun d’entre nous, mais aussi sur la démocratie.Ce n’est pas la première fois que Barack Obama met en garde les étudiants contre les nouvelles technologies. Il y a quelques mois, il avait en effet profité d’une visite au lycée d’Arlington, près de Washington, pour recommander aux jeunes de ne pas publier n’importe quoi sur le réseau social Facebook.Le 11 mai 2010 à 16:08 • Emmanuel Perrinlast_img read more

Relive the Full Strawberry Moon With These Stunning Images

The Internet’s got your back.Social media is brimming with photographic evidence of the colorful celestial event.Appearing “opposite” the Sun (in Earth-based longitude), the celestial body rose late on Wednesday, or in the week hours of Thursday, depending on your time zone.June’s full Moon got its name from Algonquin tribes, who, according to The Old Farmer’s Almanac, knew it as the signal to gather ripening fruit. It is also known as the Honey Moon and Mead Moon.But while Earth’s satellite won’t turn the deep red of its namesake, this does mark the most colorful the Moon gets all year (unless you’re lucky enough to catch the Blood Moon during a total lunar eclipse).Check out some of our favorite Full Strawberry Moon images, captured beautifully this week by pros and amateurs across the world: Tonight’s Full Strawberry Moon | Preston, Lancashire#strawberrymoon #fullmoon #stormhour #thephotohour pic.twitter.com/5s57Bf3KzG— Sonia Bashir (@SoniaBashir_) June 28, 2018 Rare Harvest Moon Will Light Up Night Sky on Friday the 13thIndia Finds Lost Vikram Lander on Moon’s Surface Strawberry Moonrise video behind @Ely_Cathedral tonight, a little clearer than last night #StrawberryMoon @SpottedInEly @ElyIslandPie @visitely @thisiselycambs @HeartCambs @EastCambs @BBCWthrWatchers @ChrisPage90 @lizzieweather @JonestheNews @BBCLookEast @itvanglia pic.twitter.com/NBUjAaT3TZ— Andrew Sharpe (@SharpeImages_UK) June 28, 2018According to NASA, the first full Moon following the summer solstice (which just occurred on June 21) shines more brightly through the atmosphere than at other times of year, giving it a rosy hue. The 2018 Strawberry Moon was particularly exciting, as it arrived during Saturn’s annual “opposition”—the day Earth passes between the Sun and the ringed planet.Thought to have formed some 4.51 billion years ago from debris left over after an impact between Earth and a Mars-sized body called Theia, the Moon is the second-brightest regularly visible celestial object—after the sun.While the Moon itself does not radiate light, its dark surface reflects the sun’s rays at various times of day, making it a convenient timepiece; some of the earliest calendars were based on the Moon’s periods of waxing and waning.Keep up with the rest of the lunar year by following The Old Farmer’s Almanac‘s Full Moon calendar:July 27 @ 4:22 p.m. ET: Full Buck MoonAug. 26 @ 7:58 a.m. ET: Full Sturgeon MoonSept. 24 @ 10:54 p.m. ET: Full Corn MoonOct. 24 @ 12:47 p.m. ET: Full Hunter’s MoonNov. 23 @ 12:41 a.m. ET: Full Beaver MoonDec. 22 @ 12:50 p.m. ET: Full Cold MoonNext month’s Full Buck Moon is set to coincide with a total lunar eclipse—the second one this year.

Landing halts trading as stocks plummet Chairman out of reach

first_img Landing International rejects links to company found using IP to promote cryptocurrency Two Landing directors voted out, Chairman Yang sneaks back in RelatedPosts Hong Kong-listed Landing International Development Ltd was forced to issue a trading halt on Thursday after its stock price plummeted 35% in less than two hours.In a filing to the Hong Kong Stock Exchange, the company said that it was unaware of any specific reason for the plunge but added it had been unable to contact its majority shareholder Yang Zhihui throughout the day.

Mosby Faces Relentless Racist Attacks

first_imgBaltimore City State’s Attorney Marilyn Mosby quickly became a prominent national symbol of the fight for law enforcement reform in America after she officially took the SA’s chair in January 2015.Baltimore City State’s Attorney Marilyn Mosby discusses the almost non-stop racist attacks aimed at her since she indicted the six Baltimore police officers connected to the death of Freddie Gray, during the inaugural episode of The AFRO First Edition w/Sean Yoes, video podcast. (Photo by Taya Graham)Yet, the mantle of reformer she has consciously taken on seems to have been augmented recently as her office has grappled with repeated cases of officer misconduct within the Baltimore Police Department (BPD).“Misconduct by police that has led to dropped cases, overturned convictions and interrupted prosecutions of a startling depth, has waylaid prosecutors with hundreds of hours of review and dozens of court motions to clean up charges still pending,” my colleague Stephen Janis wrote recently in the AFRO article, “State’s Attorney Mosby: Nearly 900 Cases Tainted By Police Misconduct.” Mosby’s work even garnered praise from USA Today in an opinion piece Sept. 30.“On Tuesday, Baltimore State’s Attorney Marilyn Mosby announced her office’s decision to dismiss a large number of drug cases in response to troubling police body-camera footage…that have been or will be dropped since this issue first emerged over the summer. Mosby’s decision should be neither surprising nor controversial. The fact that it has been both, indicates that too many people in our nation still don’t fully appreciate the role prosecutors must play if we want to effectively combat police misconduct and restore community confidence in our criminal justice system.”However, praise for Mosby, especially from the law enforcement community was almost non-existent just months into her tenure. On May 1, 2015, in the tumultuous wake of the death of Freddie Gray and the subsequent uprising, she did what no prosecutor of a major city had done in many years; indicted police officers for alleged brutality. When she indicted all six officers connected to Gray’s death, she incurred the wrath of the Fraternal Order of Police, their supporters and legions of hate spewing, mostly anonymous internet trolls. And the attacks have been relentless.“It was definitely something I did not anticipate…four months into my term it was kind of a precursor to what we see on a regular basis right now on Twitter. But, this happened immediately after I charged the officers,” Mosby said during the inaugural episode of, “The AFRO First Edition” video podcast that launched Oct. 9.“I had a group, an organization called, “Red Nation Rising,”…on Twitter I was being blasted. I was getting death threats…and hate mail to my office. I can remember one incident where they described vividly how my husband would be killed coming outside of our house, in an obituary…and how when we would call for the police, no one would show up,” Mosby added.“It was definitely something I did not anticipate. I can remember one note was, `You racist, ni–er bi–h.’ And I said, the irony of that.”Indeed, it is the White supremacist triple play; the subhuman reduction of a Black woman to a “ni–er,” and a “bi–h,” while simultaneously making her “the racist” in the equation, the embodiment of the prurient race fantasy churning in the bowels of Trump’s America. Mosby said she quickly had to learn not to take the attacks personally.“That’s something we can kind of laugh at now because we’re accustomed to it, but when I was going through it what I had to learn how to do, and rather quickly, is not to internalize it. And to understand that it wasn’t about me individually, about Marilyn Mosby, but about what Marilyn Mosby represents,” she said.Ultimately, what Mosby represents is an attack against the status quo and the power structure of the U.S. criminal justice system that is inherently racist and sexist (as a Black woman Mosby represents about one percent of prosecutors who are women of color nationally).Who she represents are the people of Baltimore and the disproportionate percentage of those residents engaged with the criminal justice system are mostly poor and mostly Black. Mosby said for them, the uprising of April 2015 did not happen in a vacuum.“When we look at our city, which is in one of the richest states in the country, Baltimore’s population…24 percent of Baltimore’s population lives in poverty, 35 percent of children live below poverty. We have 18,000 vacant houses…the number of liquor stores that inundate our community…on top of the discriminatory policing practices against African-American men, and the violence that plagues our communities. I understood the emotions that were attached to the uprising,” Mosby said.“And on May 1st (2015)… I did my job. And for the first time…in a long while you had accountability across the board.”Sean Yoes is the AFRO’s Baltimore Editor, and host and executive producer of The AFRO First Edition w/Sean Yoes on the AFRO’s Facebook page.last_img

OROP Veterans welcome govt decision withdraw hunger strike

first_imgThe ex-servicemen said revision of pension after a gap of five years as announced by the government is not at all acceptable to them, besides appointment of a one-man judicial commission to examine various aspects of one rank-one pension (OROP).Addressing a press conference here, Maj Gen (Retd) Satbir Singh, leader of the association leading the agitation, said the protest will continue till four specific points raised by the ex-servicemen are not accepted by the government.”We urge all those who are on hunger strike to withdraw it as the PM has clarified on the issue of premature retirement.But our protest will continue till the government accepts four points raised by us,” he said.He said ex-servicemen may resume hunger strike again if the government fails to resolve the pending issues.”We thank Prime Minister Narendra Modi for fulfilling the promise of one rank-one pension. We thank the defence minister but there are four issues to be resolved including the period of equalisation of pension,” Singh said.The veterans, who have been pressing for one rank-one pension (OROP) for four decades, on Saturday won a partial victory with the government announcing that it would implement it, but the veterans rejected the decision and decided to continue their agitation.The issue of whether the scheme would cover ex-servicemen who have taken premature retirement had emerged as a major sticking point.They met Defence Minister Manohar Parrikar on Saturday and later said his clarification in this regard was “satisfying”.last_img read more

The party leadership had told the booth committee workers that money had been released and they would get it before the election which was held on May 19, the last day of the seven phase election. “But the money never reached us. The money was taken by Basu and we demand that he should return the money back to the party,” the workers said. They alleged that as the money did not reach them, the party could not win the seat. The demonstration of the BJP workers clearly indicate that money was sent to buy the voters in the booth level. It may be mentioned that Trinamool Congress supremo has said over and again that BJP was spending huge cash to win the election. She had alleged that BJP was spending anything between Rs 2000 to Rs 2500 per person to cast their vote in favour of the party. Sayantan Basu said the allegations made against him were “absolutely false.” “I did not handle any money. It was controlled by the party and those who are brining allegations are trying to malign me,” he said. Basu had shot to fame by using “unparliamentary” words against Trinamool Congress. He had often criticized Trinamool leaders for being corrupt. However, the allegation of financial irregularity has put up on a backfoot.last_img read more

These Creepy Sounding Billboards Track Whether Ads Trigger Purchases

first_img Attend this free webinar and learn how you can maximize efficiency while getting the most critical things done right. This story originally appeared on Fortune Magazine February 29, 2016 If you see a shoe billboard, will you buy a shoe? Advertisers around the country are starting to get some answers to that question.Clear Channel Outdoor Americas, a massive billboard company controlled by iHeartMedia Inc. with thousands of displays across the country, is debuting a new kind of consumer tracking technology the company is calling “RADAR.” The system taps into mobile phone signals to track how well ads are doing their jobs, answering questions like who’s really buying a product, looking up a brand, or talking about it with friends after they see an ad.Andy Stevens, senior vice president for research and insights at Clear Channel Outdoor, told The New York Times the concept “does sound a bit creepy.”But Clear Channel says the company can’t really see who you are and where you’re going. The system is designed to anonymously track traffic patterns about who’s passing ads and what they do next. Clear Channel’s partnering with AT&T, ad analytics company Placed, and PlaceIQ to analyze the data.Toms recently tried out the new system in Orlando. The company learned how likely people were to talk about its shoes with their friends or look up the company online after they saw an outdoor ad. Clear Channel said people who saw the Toms ads were 44 percent more likely to buy a pair of shoes.The tracing comes as TVs and computers around the world are starting to watch consumers. The BBC recently conducted an experiment looking at how people’s faces respond to ads on their computer screens, while TVision tracked thousands of people watching Super Bowl 50 in Boston and declared a “most smiled at” ad (it featured Alec Baldwin).Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg recently announced the company is also working on virtual reality technology that would more precisely trace where people are looking on-screen to deliver faster, higher-quality resolution virtual reality.So here’s looking at you, consumer.

Blockchains Real Estate Reality

first_imgBlockchain’s Real Estate Reality bitcoin Blockchain cryptocurrency FinTech 2018-03-12 David Wharton If you’ve been thinking blockchain is all about Bitcoin, you’re not alone. As a recent study by BuzzSumo shows there were more than 40,000 Bitcoin-related articles published every week in December. With the mainstream media spotlight shining brightly on “Bitcoin Billionaires,” it’s hard not to notice. Of course, Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies are based on the latest in blockchain technology. But technology is “technical”—which explains why this great, enabling advancement lives in the shadows of the coin crowd.From Crypto to CashWhether talking about Bitcoin or blockchain, even new technology cannot immediately overcome old thinking. At the Inman Connect New York event, one lucky Miami real estate professional talked about how she had brokered not one, but four cryptocurrency real estate deals. As the interview came to a close, the question was posed, “How did the escrow work?” The answer? The buyer converted their Bitcoin millions to the common U.S. dollar. In the end, the story was about the common “cash deal.” Crypto is coming to real estate, and there are edge cases today, but it is far from mainstream as it is still treated as a simple asset class. With that interview as motivation for a more common-sense approach, let’s take a closer look at how the future of blockchain might unfold.Tech Titans, Interested Incumbents, and Smart StartupsThe history of technology is replete with stories where companies of all sizes play in the same space. IBM recently revealed they have over 400 blockchain projects with 63 forward-looking companies, including financial firms like HSBC and Visa alongside non-financials like Walmart and Nestle. In addition to IBM, we have seen numerous blockchain advances from Microsoft, Oracle, Google, and other tech-first players.Technology advancements are seen as innovative—or disruptive—to existing financial players, depending upon their perspective an ability to execute. The R3 consortium partners continue to make headlines and Bank of America has applied for or received at least 43 patents for blockchain. Having learned lessons from being late to the Internet, many in the banking and financial services industries are looking not to make the same mistakes in the coming blockchain era.With such broad application, blockchain has attracted numerous startups focused on everything from cryptocurrency to literally ending world hunger. Several vertical market startups are focused on models that could be highly disruptive to the current real estate industry model, with two examples found in RealBlocks and Factom. RealBlocks is an Ethereum smart-contracts governed ecosystem and funding platform focused on using the functionality of blockchain for improved liquidity, transparency, and security, as well as a reduction in fees for secured real estate investments. Meanwhile, Factom brings a collaborative blockchain platform that can preserve, validate, and publish evidence for the mortgage industry where a single source of verifiable truth has always been needed but lacking.Meanwhile, the interested incumbent players look to innovate or invest in, but not disrupt, their own vertical markets. Indeed, that is a fine line to walk.Blockchain BetsOur industry is fraught with areas where improvement in mundane processes could yield dramatic benefits for all involved. For instance, could our system(s) of managing mortgage payoffs be improved using a highly visible, fully traceable, immutable blockchain approach? Most certainly. Would it speed transactions while reducing or eliminating fraud? Quite possibly. Will a project like that ever be funded by an interested incumbent? Doubtful. Like any other project, the return on investment question must be answered. If payoffs are a headache for all participants, then it is a “level playing field” where blockchain offers little benefit other than perhaps as a tightly controlled, publicity-focused, proof-of-concept.The Innovator’s DilemmaThis brings us to Clayton Christensen’s timeless insights from his landmark book The Innovator’s Dilemma, first published in 1997. The main takeaway, still true today, is that it is challenging for entrenched incumbents to devote dollars to projects that do not yield immediate returns. As such, they often fall prey to short-term thinking thereby leaving themselves open to disruption by startup competitors who have nothing to lose. Look at recent examples where relatively new “platform” companies like Airbnb now face competition from blockchain startups that look to eliminate the middle-man. The disruptor gets disrupted. Recently, well-funded “ibuyers” have begun to look at speeding the transaction via smart contracts and Internet-of-things (IoT) technology. Imagine what could happen in real estate, mortgage, and title as tech-first innovators begin to deconstruct an often confusing, but universally accepted, transaction process.Innovation is here and disruption is coming. Though blockchain is still in its early days, the number of innovative and disruptive use cases continues to grow. Don’t simply follow this new technology but be on the watch for disruptive new models that are only made possible by new technology. in Daily Dose, Featured, Headlines, journal, News, Technologycenter_img March 12, 2018 807 Views Sharelast_img read more

NEW YORK — Theres plenty of rock on Steven Van Za

first_img NEW YORK — There’s plenty of rock on Steven Van Zandt’s first album of original material in 20 years. There’s also soul and funk and some mean horn solos. What there isn’t plenty of is politics.The bandana-wearing guitarist for Bruce Springsteen’s E Street Band, who in the past has never been shy about calling out politicians, has put aside partisanship in these divisive times.“I’m trying to stay as nonpartisan as I can and provide some common ground,” he said. “When you’re as political as I was — and I was as political as it gets — for the hardcore fans of mine it’s going to take a bit of adjustment.”Van Zandt, who in the past has raised his voice against apartheid and nuclear weapons, refuses to add kindling to what he considers a country “heading towards a civil war.” He wants his concerts to be a safe zone.“Democrats, Republicans and independents are welcome to come to the show and enjoy themselves because it’s a strictly musical trip,” he said. “We need a break every now and then, in other words, and right now we’re providing that break.”Van Zandt’s relief comes in the form of a new album, “Summer of Sorcery.” The 12-track collection sees him reteam with his 15-piece band, the Disciples of Soul, and mine what he calls a “rock-meets-soul thing.”“It’s the first time in my life I’ve ever done two records in a row that were with the same band, first of all, and with the same sound — in the same genre, even. I’m going to stick with that now,” he said.The album is a stew of Van Zandt’s influences, ranging from mambo to classic rock to doo-wop. There’s a flute solo in one song, and another name-checks Brian Wilson of The Beach Boys.“There’s not a whole lot that’s good about getting older but there is one thing, which is you really tend to integrate your influences,” he said. “I like to have my influences on my sleeve. I do that intentionally, leaving little breadcrumbs for people to follow backwards, hoping that they do listen to the original artists.”In addition to avoiding politics, the album is also not autobiographical, a first for the musician. For each song, Van Zandt wrote from a different character’s perspective. In “Superfly Terraplane,” he’s a millennial; in “Love Again,” he’s a world-weary traveller searching for love.“I like the idea of just making the 12 little movies and play a different role in each one,” he said. “I analyzed myself to death in the ’80s and I was sick of me. So I was ready for exploring my imagination for a change.”The idea of writing an entire album of new material came during the tour of Van Zandt’s 2017 album “Soulfire,” which was composed of covers and songs he had written for other artists but never cut himself.“The brain cells that work towards writing your own records started to wake up,” he said. “The tour just started feeding in those ideas and basically we took the tour and put it in a blender and out popped these songs — basically exactly how I was hoping it would work and it did.”Bruce Resnikoff, president/CEO at Universal Music Enterprises, calls Van Zandt “maybe the smartest musicologist you’ll ever meet.” He said Van Zandt effectively took 20 years off from his solo work to work with Springsteen, and returned to his sound as soon as he re-engaged with his own work.“It’s almost as if he picked off where he left off,” Resnikoff said. “When he goes onstage with his own band, you get everything you saw of him in the E Street Band plus you get everything you remember of him as a solo artist. He’s phenomenal.”Van Zandt is juggling plenty of projects, including a tour to support the new album. He’s just released the box set “Soulfire Live!,” which includes guest appearances from the likes of Springsteen and Paul McCartney. A two-volume set of his music for the “Lilyhammer” Netflix series comes out in July. A catalogue box — including his five solo albums from the 1980s, the protest album “Sun City,” and live songs and extras — is due in the fall. He also confirmed that Springsteen has written an album for the E Street Band.Then there’s ensuring that there’s a pipeline of music fans for the future. Van Zandt believes his “Underground Garage” radio show on Sirius XM has introduced about 1,000 new bands to the public in the past 17 years. And he recently founded the TeachRock project, which helps young people connect the history of popular music to classroom work across disciplines.It has 150 free lesson plans online and 25,000 teachers have registered. Jackson Browne, Martin Scorsese, Bono and Springsteen have helped develop it.Van Zandt was inspired to launch the initiative to “keep the arts in the DNA of the education system.” It works by connecting music to history and social studies. If a student loves Beyonce, they’ll soon learn about people who paved the way for her, like Aretha Franklin, and lessons about the gospel church, Detroit and the civil rights movement.“Art is an absolutely necessary part of the quality of life and it also helps kids learn. It gives them a comfortable place to learn from,” he said.Some of the reason Van Zandt has been less outspoken with his politics is to avoid having the curriculum accused of being partisan. “I wanted it to be a purely educational enterprise.”His music, though, remains welcome to all.“You will leave stronger than you came and leave happier than you came,” he says, “and maybe even be able to deal with this madness of the real world a little bit better.”___Mark Kennedy is at http://twitter.com/KennedyTwitsMark Kennedy, The Associated Press by Mark Kennedy, The Associated Press Posted May 20, 2019 7:43 am PDT This May 6, 2019 photo shows actor and musician Steven Van Zandt in New York.

Anastasiades answers critics with call for unity

first_imgPresident Nicos Anastasiades on Sunday hit back at critics of his stance on the Cyprus talks and called for the unity of the political parties so that the challenges ahead could be met.Unveiling a monument in Agios  Athanasios in honour of Greek Cypriots and Greeks who fell during the 1974 invasion, the president said that if there was progress at the talks, it was because the Greek Cypriot side showed courage and determination to meet the concerns of the Turkish Cypriots. He expected the Turkish Cypriots do the same.Anastasiades said that during the last two years of “difficult negotiations”, the Greek Cypriot side had made great effort to reach an overall agreement.“Throughout this round of talks we have achieved convergences on key issues and we have recorded positions that allow me to say that they constitute significant progress. Unfortunately, there are differences that remain unresolved,” he said.He appealed to all political parties for unity, “both to those who blame me for having made unacceptable concessions, but also to the others, who dictate that I must continue and exhaust all options”.The threats facing Cyprus needed unity, he said. “Now is the time to give our hands. When you are the target of threats, and you are still in negotiations, instead of exhortations about exhausting all options, it would be good to stand united to face the threats,” he said and had a dig at his critics, who “try to accuse of expediencies those that express the positions of the National Council.”Anastasiades wondered “why, in the event the talks collapsed, should I take equal responsibility, given that instead of goodwill, I am met by the hardened positions (of the Turkish Cypriot side)?”“I never sought the collapse (of the talks).  On the contrary, through concrete actions, for which I have received severe criticism, I have shown that my aim is to continue the dialogue,” he said.It should have been clear to all, he said, that when the aim was to create a homeland and a functioning European state that defended and safeguarded the human rights of all citizens, Greek Cypriots and Turkish Cypriots, one could not ignore positions that overturned basic principles.Anastasiades said that his vision “was, and remains, the reunification of our homeland, its liberation from the occupying troops, the creation of a functioning state, the creation of conditions for peaceful coexistence and prosperity, security for all, and not unilaterally for some and a threat to others”.He added that he would work for a settlement with the same determination but he knew where he could make concessions and what not to accept, “if we are to achieve a solution also acceptable by the Greek Cypriot community”.Anastasiades has been under fire from main opposition Akel for placing next year’s presidential elections ahead of the talks.Akel’s general secretary Andros Kyprianou warned on Sunday that the next meeting of the two leaders which was to take place on Wednesday, was critical, as, it would determine whether the effort to reach a settlement agreement would continue.If there was no progress, he said, the procedure would stop until after the presidential elections and then it would become “extremely difficult” to get anywhere as conditions would change. He said that it had been a month and a half ago thatSerdar Denktash had announced that 7,200 new ‘citizenships’ would be granted. This number could have risen said Kyprianou.This, he said, would change the agreement on population ratio and create huge problems as to the convergences achieved, whereas land development would continue thus affecting the issues of territory and property. You May LikeFigLeaf Beta AppHow to Become Fully Anonymous Online in Less Than 3 Minutes?FigLeaf Beta AppUndoFigLeaf Beta AppFigLeaf brings You 3 Easy Steps to Privacy on Your Terms…FigLeaf Beta AppUndoFigLeaf Beta AppGet Maximum Privacy with Minimum EffortFigLeaf Beta AppUndo Concern over falling tourism numbersUndoAuthorities release five of 12 Israeli rape suspects, seven due in court FridayUndoPensioner dies after crash on Paphos-Polis roadUndoby Taboolaby Taboolalast_img read more
