Is Publishing Becoming a Minimum Wage Trade

first_imgThe memo received by BNP Media staffers this week alerting them to 25 percent salary cuts for the foreseeable future includes a line that jumps off the page almost as much as that “25 percent” figure: “Minimum wage will be the floor for this reduction.”It’s a line that assures employees the company won’t be cutting below minimum wage (which of course, would be illegal), and only applies to those support positions that may be hovering around minimum wage after the 25 percent cuts. But still, are things so bad that we have to be assured now that salaries won’t be cut to minimum wage? Salary cuts usually start at the top and the Henderson family (who owns BNP) have taken theirs as well. However, an associate editor making $40,000 who is hit with a 25 percent salary cut is suddenly making $30,000. Forget trying to live on that in publishing capitals like New York City-that’s a tough hit anywhere (BNP is based near Detroit).As publishers continue to make cuts to keep their businesses alive, they need to be mindful of labor rules and regulations in their state, particularly with employees below a certain salary level. As Southern Breeze editor Mark Newman noted in FOLIO:’s March issue, many high level employees (particularly editors) need to “stop being figureheads and do some work.” But for those entry and associate level employees, for whom the historic trade-off has always been “low pay but great experience,” the returns are getting harder to justify.  The company leaders who impose these cuts will need to balance their contribution margins against the eventual pushback: The unwillingness of their teams to tolerate major pay cuts even as they’re being asked to do significantly more work. It’s a dangerously narrow line to walk.last_img read more

2015 Dungeness Season Lackluster Against 2014 But Still Average

first_imgSoutheast’s Dungeness summer crab season ended on Saturday. There aren’t any preliminary numbers yet but it’s looking as if this year hasn’t got close to the bumper season crab fishermen had last summer.Download AudioTor Benson and Leif Mattern prepare to clean down the boat one last time. (Photo: KFSK/Joe Sykes)Crab fisherman Tor Benson is waiting to unload his final dungeness catch of the season at Icicle’s dock.It was a slow day and while he says he’s still making money:“It’s getting to that point where we might not. It’s a good time to end,” he said.Benson’s boat reeks from the stench of rotting crab bait after a long day out in the Alaskan sun. And deckhand Leif Mattern, cleaning bait boxes at the bow of the boat one final time says he’s glad it’s all over.“We’re all jaded from last year. Last year was a great season. It’s hard when you do that well and then you come back and it’s not so good,” he said.Many crab fishermen say last summer will go down as legendary in the history of Southeast’s dungeness fishery.Crabbers caught 4.06 million pounds earning a value of more than $12 million. That was more than double what they earned in the 2013 season.And Benson says since fishing started in June he’s caught about 30 percent of the crab he brought in last summer.“This year’s slow, last year’s an epic year, the best in a decade but that’s fishing, you have good years and you have bad,” he said.And the numbers seem to show that rather than it being a bad year, the catch has returned to somewhere close to the average season yield. While the final week’s fish tickets have not been entered yet, the crab harvest through August 13th for the 2015 season is 2.56 million pounds, close to the 5-year average of just over 3 million pounds.And Joe Stratman, who’s a crab biologist at fish and game says irrespective of the slowdown, crab quality has been good.“We’ve had nice hard-shell crabs landed to processors. Crabs generally have been hard-shell and full of meat,” he said.And much of that meat has been caught by an expanded fleet. Stratman says because of the bumper harvest last year, the number of permits reporting catches is 192, almost 30 more than average for the last five years.While many of these numbers are preliminary it seems fishing hasn’t quite lived up to expectations.And at Icicle’s dock a long, hard season has taken a toll on everyone. Juan works as an unloader at PFI and has dropped down from the factory to help take the crab up to be sorted for the final time.I ask him if he’s pleased that the crab season is over.“Yes,” he replies. “I hate crabs. No more.”And with that he starts transferring the dungies into his tote and another summer crab season scuttles swiftly to a close.last_img read more

Turks seek alternative media as news landscape shrinks

first_imgA journalist and guest take part in an internet broadcast in a studio at the headquarters of Turkish alternative media organisation Medyascope on 16 May 2018, in Istanbul.It’s not an obvious location for a media organisation. A gritty area dominated by car repair workshops in the backstreets of Istanbul. There’s no sign outside — just a photocopied sheet of paper pinned to the door requesting silence: “Broadcast in Progress”.Welcome to the headquarters of Turkish broadcaster Medyascope, an almost three-year-old alternative voice in an increasingly constricted media landscape in Turkey and an example of what new media can offer even in tough circumstances.The door swings open to reveal a surprisingly standard television studio with a desk and coloured background. A team of young editors are glued to their laptops around a large table, whispering excitedly, preparing the next broadcast.Medyascope, which was founded in 2015 by leading Turkish journalist Rusen Cakir, does not broadcast through satellite let alone terrestrial TV, but rather via new media like Facebook, YouTube and Periscope.Every weekday it presents several hours of live debate from voices across the political spectrum with a freedom increasingly absent from the major news channels in Turkey under the rule of president Recep Tayyip Erdogan.’No other channels left’ Awarded the Free Media Pioneer Award by the International Press Institute (IPI) in 2016, its importance has grown as ownership changes and increasingly adverse conditions for reporters have limited the media spectrum, encouraging prominent Turkish journalists to join the channel and frustrated viewers to watch it.And with Turkey heading for presidential and parliamentary elections on June 24 at a time when journalists complain of a lack of pluralism in traditional media dominated by coverage of Erdogan, its voice is ever more important.”There are no other channels left in Turkey, where journalists like myself, with a mainstream media background, could work today,” said presenter Isin Elicin, formerly a prominent anchor on the NTV news channel.”The mainstream media are not broadcasting news in the way that people need to be informed. They look for sources that do alternative but independent, objective journalism. And they find us,” she said.Elicin, once a familiar face on mainstream Turkish TV, insisted it was essential that alternative media did not become identified as pro-opposition.”The main goal of Medyascope is to do journalism. It’s not the journalists’ job to do opposition. It’s our guests who make the comments,” she said.’Extending government grip’ Just ahead of the snap elections announcement, Turkey’s media world was struck in April by the thunderbolt-like announcement that the largest media group, Dogan Media Group, was being sold by Dogan Holding to its rival, Demiroren Group.The Dogan Media Group owns some of the country’s biggest media brands like the Hurriyet daily and CNN Turk news channel. While not seen as outright opposition media, they were regarded as bastions of independent journalism.But analysts have seen the takeover as a clear attempt by the government to exercise control over these media. Demiroren Group’s chairman Erdogan Demiroren is considered close to the president, while his son, Yildirim, runs the Turkish Football Federation.With the sale approved by Turkey’s competition authority, the changes have come fast at Hurriyet and CNN Turk, which have seen an exodus of talent, with prominent CNN Turk anchor Ahu Ozyurt the latest to go.In an op-ed in Hurriyet, Erdogan Demiroren appeared to indicate change was needed, saying media should “stay away from destructiveness and return to its stance of constructive criticism.”Marc Pierini, a visiting scholar at Carnegie Europe, said increasing control over the media was one of several instruments used by the government to ensure victory in the elections seen as a watershed for Turkey.”Favourable sales of media groups to government-friendly businesses is extending the government’s grip on the press,” he said.The furore over the acquisition of Dogan Media is nothing new.The Milliyet and Vatan dailies had already been sold to Demiroren by Dogan in 2011, while the Sabah daily, once an independently-minded newspaper, is now an unashamedly pro-government title following ownership changes in 2007. ‘Emerged out of a necessity’ Some independent titles do remain, such as the anti-Erdogan Cumhuriyet and the leftist BirGun. But the price can be high and 13 staff of Cumhuriyet were convicted on terror offences in April although they remain free pending appeal.In a sign of the thirst for news from such sources, top Turkish journalists have amassed colossal numbers of social media followers who enjoy their sometimes piquant views — the popular host of Fox TV’s evening news show, Fatih Portakal, has more than 5.95 million Twitter followers.While private and state networks tend to broadcast every word of Erdogan’s speeches from greetings to farewells, those of main opposition candidate Muharrem Ince are usually cut, while opposition nationalist Meral Aksener is barely shown at all.Burak Tatari, another anchor at Medyascope and formerly of weekly magazine Tempo, said that audiences in Turkey were failing to find access to the information they needed in mainstream media, with interview subjects and material filtered.He said that the main limit on Medyascope’s growth was financing, with advertising difficult to attract and the bulk of its revenues coming from grants from international foundations.”Medyascope has emerged out of a necessity,” he said. “We are trying to do here what the mainstream media should do.”last_img read more

EA and Klei announce Shank 2 adds survival coop mode

first_imgLast year PSN, XBLA and Steam gamers got a treat in the form of the ultra-violent side-scrolling beat-em-up Shank from developer Klei Entertainment. If there’s a better looking game in the same genre we haven’t seen it yet, and now it is getting a sequel.EA Partners announced this week its intention to publish Shank 2. Klei has already spent a year developing the game, but this apparently isn’t just a sequel. Jamie Cheng, founder of Klei states on the official blog for Shank 2 that the team took on board all the feedback they got for the original and started fresh. So while this is going to be a true sequel, everything has been re-imagined to offer up “twice the fidelity and far more control over our favorite stabbing man.”The weapon system has been redesigned allowing for more variation in the enemy types you can take on. This includes new weapon combos and counter moves. The environments also look even better than the first game, and Klei has added a new layer of destruction with more explosions and environmental damage promised.As for new features, Shank 2 introduces a survival mode that can be played co-op with a friend either locally or online. It’s basically a brawl on a much larger scale to challenge both of you at once.There’s no word on a release date yet other than “early 2012,” but with a year of production already done I’m hoping for a January rather than March launch.More at the Shank 2 official blog, via Gamasutralast_img read more

Hope in colours and canvas

first_imgSome extra faith can never be a bad thing. The core theme of Ekta Jain’s paintings is  ‘Hope and never to despair’. The illuminated niches , rays of sun lighting up the dark crevices, beams of radiance dispelling the gloom are subtle statements occupying the focal point in her creations.Jain’s artwork is autobiographical and bears a close resemblance to her ‘never say die’ spirit and cheerful demeanor, finding vivid translation in her  formations and fabrications on the canvas. Her abstracts are reflective of hope and faith; of assurance and conviction of trust and optimism. Also Read – ‘Playing Jojo was emotionally exhausting’There is a symmetrical oneness in her apparently diversified expressions like her name ‘Ekta’ which implies unity, uniformity, solidarity and homogeneity. Her play with colours started at a tender age till it metamorphosed into emphatic narrations. Her journey to urban spaces is punctuated by her desire to discover layers upon layers of soul’s responses to civility or lack of it. The innate desire led her to formulate and execute her concept without any formal exercise in art.Her paintings are like palimpsest. Elusive at times and evasive but at the end of it the works come across as strokes of hope and happiness.last_img read more

State to raise issue with NIOS over DEIEd exams new dates

first_imgKolkata: State Education minister Partha Chatterjee on Monday expressed his displeasure over the National Institute of Open Schooling (NIOS)’s decision in cancelling the D.El. Ed examination in Bengal, citing leakage.”The test has been cancelled only in Bengal but not in any other state where the examination was held. When an examination is cancelled for alleged leakage, it should be done in all the states where the examinations are supposed to be held. Why only in Bengal? Is the NIOS regulated by the Centre,” Chatterjee questioned. Also Read – Speeding Jaguar crashes into Mercedes car in Kolkata, 2 pedestrians killedThe rescheduling of the examination on February 3 in which candidates have to appear for two subjects each of three hours’ duration has also been an area of concern for those who have already sat for the examination held on December 20 and 21 respectively. The state Education secretary has already written a letter to the concerned authorities either to revoke its decision of cancellation or reconsider the rescheduled date. “The teachers have submitted a deputation to me citing their difficulty to appear for two papers on a single day. So we have decided to raise the issue with the NIOS,” Chatterjee said. Also Read – Bose & Gandhi: More similar than apart, says Sugata BoseThe teachers who have been already teaching in institutions but do not have B.Ed degree can clear D.El. Ed examination and accordingly meet the requisite criteria for teaching as mandated by the National Council of Teacher Education (NCTE). Meanwhile, the state Education department has decided to raise the salary of Siksha Bandhus from Rs 5,994 to Rs 8,392 a month. There are presently 3,925 Siksha Bandhus working at the grass-root level of Sarba Siksha Abhiyan (SSA). “The salary of those associated with project management related work under the SSA will also be enhanced by 40 percent on an average,” Chatterjee said. The minister expressed his optimism that induction of Class V in primary education will be completed by 2020 with some areas to be worked upon.last_img read more

Windows Firewall Control 51 with Security improvements

first_imgWindows Firewall Control 5.1 with Security improvements by Martin Brinkmann on March 05, 2018 in Software – 21 commentsWindows Firewall Control 5.1 is the latest version of the security program for Windows that extends the functionality of the built-in firewall called Windows Firewall.We reviewed Windows Firewall Control back in 2009 for the first time and concluded that it was an excellent application for Windows systems that were configured to use Windows Firewall for protection.The developer released Windows Firewall Control 5.0 in late 2017 and two smaller updates afterward.Windows Firewall Control 5.1 is the first major release after the release of version 5.0, and the first major release of the program in 2018.Windows Firewall Control 5.1If you used the program’s automatic update check to find and download new versions, you will notice that you cannot use it for the version 5.1 release of Windows Firewall Control.The program asks you to uninstall the current version, download the new version manually, and install it then. You may want to keep your firewall rules and changes by selecting that option during removal.Registered users need to generate a new activation code on the project website and enter it under about in the program’s interface.The new version comes with new and improved features. The application’s Secure Rules feature was “rewritten from scratch”. It blocks any modification to Windows firewall rules to protect against unwanted tampering with the ruleset. Rules can only be modified through Windows Firewall Control if the feature is enabled under Security > Secure Rules. Users may set a new hotkey to toggle the state of Secure Rules.Secure Profile is a new feature that falls into the same category of protecting firewall rules against unwanted modifications. The feature blocks the importing of firewall rules and changing the filtering mode of Windows Firewall Control using external means. Import and filtering changes are only available from within the program. You enable Secure Profile under Security > Secure Profile.Another new protective feature displays a dialog to the user if Windows Firewall Control is password protected and if uninstall is invoked.Existing users with eagle eyes may spot new recommended inbound rules “required for accessing the computers from the local network”.Closing WordsWindows Firewall Control 5.1 improves the application’s protection against unwanted tampering. Users of the software need to enable the security features as they are not enabled by default.The necessity to uninstall the previous version to install the latest, and the requirement to generate a new activation code is unfortunate, but it is hopefully just a one-time process.Now You: Which firewall do you use and why?Summary12345 Author Rating4 based on 10 votes Software Name Windows Firewall Control 5.1Operating System WindowsSoftware Category SecurityLanding Page https://www.binisoft.org/wfc.php Advertisementlast_img read more

The Lucnt SRL1 is a smart bike light for smarter people

first_imgWhen is a bike light not a bike light? When it turns itself off automatically and can signal that you’re braking even before you stop. The Lucnt SRL1 is just that kind of light.Created by a pair of SF-area brothers, the light is hand-made and is rechargeable via USB. It connects to your bike with powerful magnets and can change from blinking to solid simply by flipping the position of the light. The light automatically brightens when you brake and turns off when the bike is still.I saw multiple versions of the light and the team has done something truly unique. This is actually a piece of “artisanal” hardware, handmade in a small factory, and the brothers, Arash and Mehdi, dedicated all their spare cycles to making sure this thing worked. It was fascinating to watch and now it’s interesting to see how well the project does in the crowdfunding world. They’re raising $50,000 and the product is ready to ship in June. An early bird model costs $85 and it runs for 20 hours on a single charge. It’s a fascinating little piece of hardware made for the discerning bikester. [embedded content]last_img read more

Sydney Airport seeks ACCC approval for regional fees increase

first_imgSource = e-Travel Blackboard: C.F Sydney Airport will seek ACCC approval to implement the first regional aeronautical fee increase since 2001. This proposed increase would be in accordance with the Government’s declaration under the Trade Practices Act 1974.The fee increases would include a security charge: to increase by 3 cents from 87 cents to 90 cents per passenger in addition to a passenger facilitation charge for the T2 Terminal: to increase by 13 cents from $4.50 to $4.63 per passenger. The proposal also includes a runway charge: to increase by 10 cents from $3.44 to $3.54 per tonne on a per passenger basis.According to the CEO of Sydney Airport, Russell Balding, the proposal represents a maximum increase of 2.9% in fees, which only represents one year of inflation and is considerably less than the 28.9% increase in the CPI since 2001.“Since 2001 a host of business costs have increased, which is why this fee increase is now being sought.“Regional fees have not increased since 2001, but Sydney Airport feels it is now fair and reasonable to seek a modest increase. “Sydney Airport is unique in the Australian aviation industry in that its regional aeronautical fees are subject to government price regulation, so the approval of the ACCC will be required before the increases take effect,” Mr Balding said.QantasLink, Jetstar or Virgin Blue will be exempt from the full regional fee increases as they have already successfully negotiated commercial agreements on a normal business-to-business basis with Sydney Airport. <a href=”http://www.etbtravelnews.global/click/233dc/” target=”_blank”><img src=”http://adsvr.travelads.biz/www/delivery/avw.php?zoneid=10&amp;cb=INSERT_RANDOM_NUMBER_HERE&amp;n=a5c63036″ border=”0″ alt=””></a>last_img read more

Claims by Scientologylinked antidrugs group baseless and misleading authorities say

first_imgAnti-drugs authorities on Thursday called claims by a little-known group that narcotics were sold at a school canteen were “baseless and misleading” and questioned why an unlicensed organisation was given a platform at the House education committee.Police on Thursday said that they immediately launched investigations into the report by a representative of the Cyprus chapter of Drug-Free World Europe (DFW), which comes under the umbrella of the Church of Scientology.The representative of the foundation, Stella Constantinou, told MPs on Wednesday that among other incidents, drugs has been sold students by a licensed school canteen manager.She claimed the incident was made known to her from parents who had attempted to report the matter, but began receiving threats, forcing them to abandon the idea.But police on Thursday said the claims, following initial investigations, did not hold water and that there was nothing to indicate drug pushing in school canteens.The National Addictions Authority also said on Thursday the claim did not appear to be true and questioned why an organisation that failed to receive a licence to run its drug-prevention programme has been invited to speak at the House education committee.The head of the authority, Chrysanthos Georgiou, told state broadcaster CyBC radio that his office did not grant the DFW a licence to register in Cyprus as a programme against addictions as it did not meet the minimum requirements.He raised an issue as to why the group in question, which “most importantly presented incorrect data, with no scientific backing and constant misinformation”, was invited by the House education committee to participate in the discussion.Georgiou said Constantinou had presented untrue data such as saying that the THC in cannabis available in Cyprus was as high as 98 per cent. “The state lab analysis says it is 18 per cent,” Georgiou saidHe said that he was terrified by the discussion at the House committee meeting due to the way the state efforts as regards drug prevention had been nullified, despite the fact they yield results.“One ought not to create their own myths and realities for the sake of scaremongering,” he added. He said the authority had informed the education ministry which drug prevention programmes were licensed and are allowed to work with schools in line with the national strategy.The spokesman for the drug squad (Ykan), Stelios Sergides, also said on Thursday morning that a great number of things Constantinou had said were generalisations and were untrue.He said he was surprised to hear of the incident, “because I considered that it was their obligation, as soon as they learned about this… to report it.”“It is not possible for such information to be kept from the police and just thrown out there at a House meeting to create impressions,” Sergides said.He said that his unit launched an investigation on Wednesday when Constantinou told him which school she was referring to. Sergides said that he could not understand why the incident was not reported as this could have been done anonymously.Constantinou stood by what she had presented before MPs.Some truths, she said, may bother state officials.She told CyBC that the group was in the process of having their drug prevention programme registered with authorities. She formed the Drug-Free World Foundation Cyprus chapter in 2014.“They are aware of our programme, we are in legal procedures to receive the licence so that we can access state schools,” she said.  The DFW, she said, is an international organisation, that “thrives” around the world.A similar situation occurred in Ireland a year ago after it was revealed the anti-drug brochures being circulated in Dublin schools were linked to the Church of Scientology through DFW – though there was no indication on the leaflets that a link existed.  According to the Irish Independent at the time, the department of education said it would  issue “revised circulars” to schools to provide strengthened guidance on external programmes.Constantinou said she had asked to be present at the committee meeting on Wednesday and that when she heard officials from the education ministry telling MPs that everything was under control in schools, “I had said that they most probably spend too much time in their offices and have no idea what is going on in reality.”She said that they heard of the incident in question more than six months ago but this was not the only case she had referred to MPs.She said it was easier for teenagers to access drugs than buy cigarettes and stressed the effectiveness of the DFW programme, adding that there had been a 70 per cent reduction in drug use where it has been implemented.The Cyprus group numbers many members, she said, mainly parents of teenagers.She added that despite the fact Sergides said that the group’s programme was inaccurate, their videos have been used by Ykan during campaigns in schools.Constantinou also denied that the programme had any links with the Church of Scientology other than funding.It is being funded by Scientology, she said, but the content of the programme has nothing to do with the ideology of scientology.“I challenge anyone to find anything in the programme that refers to the ideology of scientology. They will not find such a thing,” Constantinou said.The head of the House education committee, Disy’s Kyriacos Hadjiyiannis, defended the presence of Constantinou at the meeting, arguing that it was standard practice allowing groups and individuals to attend meetings upon their request when issues are discussed that concern them.He said that he did attend an event in the past organised by the group after receiving an invitation as he usually does when he is invited by other non-governmental organisations.You May LikePlarium I Vikings: Free Online GamePlay this for 1 minute and see why everyone is addictedPlarium I Vikings: Free Online GameUndoLivestlyChip And Joanna’s $18M Mansion Is Perfect, But It’s The Backyard Everyone Is Talking AboutLivestlyUndoYahoo SearchYou’ve Never Seen Luxury Like This On A Cruise Ship.
