The associated shower and thunderstorm activity continues to show some signs of organization, but the system appears to lack a well-defined center at this time. Environmental conditions are conducive for some additional development before the system reaches the Lesser Antilles late Tuesday or early Wednesday. After that time, less favorable upper-level winds are expected to hinder additional development. Regardless of development, this system is expected to bring locally heavy rainfall and gusty winds to portions of the Lesser Antilles beginning late Tuesday. An Air Force Reserve reconnaissance aircraft is scheduled to investigate the disturbance this afternoon.* Formation chance through 48 hours…medium…50 percent.* Formation chance through 5 days…medium…50 percent.2. An area of disturbed weather is located about 800 miles west- southwest of the Cabo Verde Islands. Some gradual development of this system is possible over the next few days while it moves slowly toward the west-northwest or northwest over the open Atlantic Ocean.* Formation chance through 48 hours…low…20 percent.* Formation chance through 5 days…low…30 percent.#magneticmedianews Recommended for you The Luxury of Grace Bay in Down Town Provo Related Items:#magneticmedianewslast_img read more

first_imgNo other changes were made in addition to the new name, a Miller spokesperson said.Miller Magazines was founded in 1962 by Jim and Jill Miller. The company publishes Digital Photographer, Rock & Gem and COINage magazines. Ventura, California-based magazine publisher Miller Magazines Inc. has changed its name to JMiller Media.According to general manager Thomas Trimbach, the new name reflects the publisher’s desire to shift its focus to emerging markets while “honoring its connection” to traditional publishing. “Our print titles are now complemented by online media and a strong Web presence,” Trimbach said in a statement. “And while print publishing remains at our core, it’s is only part of our offering.”last_img read more

Tinypass Gets Bigger With Swishu Acquisition

first_imgTinypass, a Web monetization solution provider, is expanding into the fulfillment space by acquiring startup Swishu. Tinypass was founded in 2011, and its clients include Hearst Magazine brands, Esquire and Cosmopolitan, as well as independent sites like Andrew Sullivan’s The Dish. The company offers a slew of commerce and digital content solutions; but CEO, Trevor Kaufman, says there was a clear demand for paid content and digital fulfillment services.”It’s something our clients have been asking for,” he says. “Most publishers we talk to are frustrated with their ability to solve their print subscriber base, that’s not the problem we’re looking to solve. We’re much more focused on the fact that banner ads alone are not going to sustain premium publishing. But if we’re just focusing on the website we are potentially leaving them [publishers] with a headache for managing their legacy subscriber base.”Managing that subscriber base is where Swishu comes in. The startup offers paywall solutions for publishers, radio stations and bloggers, plus extras like subscriber database integrations and real-time analytics. In addition to the technology, Kaufman says human capital was an important factor in the acquisition. While he would not disclose specifics, he indicates the transaction included cash and equity, plus Tinypass is bringing in the entire Swishu team of five, including its founder, Nathan Goulding, who will now serve as vice president of product engineering.Tinypass and Swishu will be maintained as two separate products for now, but Kaufman contends that the plan is to bring them together as quickly as possible. “We are maintaining the code bases separately so we don’t disrupt our clients,” he says. “The Swishu staff will be focused on how to bring the code base together so we have one product.” Kaufman also suggests that the company is working on several other innovations that go beyond the current suite of monetization tools publishers have at their disposal.”Right now there is a tremendous amount of activity in display and not much after that,” he quips. “What we’re focused on is being a one-stop shop for publishers. We are trying to develop a way to reward readers. There’s a rich functionality in that vision, and we think that’s going to put a lot of money in publishers’ pockets.”Kaufman is referring to an exchange system where readers can be rewarded for social shares, registrations, ad views and other standard practices in content consumption. It’s currently in development. “This a frontier that not a lot of publishers have been able to experiment with, there’s so much opportunity we’re seeing on the publisher side,” Kaufman says.last_img read more

RGV says NTR is backstabbed again in AP offers 2 free tickets

first_imgLakshmi’s NTRTwitterRam Gopal Varma aka RGV has alleged that Nara Chandrababu Naidu (CBN) has backstabbed late legendary actor NT Rama Rao once again, by stopping the release of Lakshmi’s NTR in Andhra Pradesh. He is offering 2 free tickets to the latter to watch it.Lakshmi’s NTR is the most-awaited controversial biographical movie based on the last days of former Chief Minister of united Andhra Pradesh, NT Rama Rao. The movie was slated for release on March 22, but it was postponed by a week. However, it landed in trouble after the Telugu Desam Party (TDP) approached the Election Commission and High Court, seeking a ban on its release in the state till the elections are over.Many viewers, who were curious to watch Lakshmi’s NTR, were upset with the TDP’s move, but Ram Gopal Varma had assured them that none can stop its release. However, the HC issued an order on Thursday evening to the director to stall its release till the AP elections are over. Later, RGV took to Twitter to clear the confusion. He said it will hit the screens everywhere except Andhra Pradesh as per its scheduled date.Ram Gopal Varma tweeted, “ANNOUNCEMENT #Lakshmis NTR releasing tmrw on 29th as scheduled all over world and Telangana state except only AP ..We rushing to Supreme Court to appeal against AP court order ..Am calling for press meet tmrw mrng 11 AM at Prasad Lab to talk about all the developments “Lakshmi’s NTR is all about Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister Nara Chandrababu Naidu backstabbing his father-in-law NT Rama Rao. Ram Gopal Varma mocked him, by tweeting, “NTR got backstabbed once again by some person in AP by not letting #LakshmIsNTR release,the same way as NTR was not allowed to keep Simhagharjana meeting before his death ..That person surely must be a back stabbing expert ..What say?Ram Gopal Varma went on to offer 2 free ticket to Nara Chandrababu Naidu to watch Lakshmi’s NTR in any theatre in Hyderabad. The director tweeted, “All bookings open now of #LakshmIsNTR ..If @ncbn is in town, since he can’t see it in his own state of A P we offering 2 free tickets in any theatre he wants to see and he can come along with bul bul @BookMyShow”Ram Gopal Varma also revealed to the people of Andhra Pradesh that Lakshmi’s NTR is available for them to watch on Qube facility.

Why Pakistan wants UN to remove Priyanka Chopra as goodwill ambassador

first_imgUNICEF goodwill ambassador, actress Priyanka ChopraReutersPakistani official demanded the removal of Indian actress Priyanka Chopra as United Nation’s goodwill ambassador over her encouraging nuclear war between the armed neighbouring countries.Human Rights Minister of Pakistan, Shireen Mazari, in a letter address to UNICEF chief Henrietta Fore, accused the actress of supporting the Indian government’s decision of abrogating Section 370 that gave Jammu and Kashmir special status as per the constitution.”Her jingoism and support for violations by the Modi government of international conventions and UN Security Council resolutions on Kashmir, as well as support for war, including a nuclear war, undermines the credibility of the UN position to which she been elevated,” the letter read.Sent letter to UNICEF chief regarding UN Goodwill Ambassador for Peace Ms Chopra pic.twitter.com/PQ3vwYjTVz— Shireen Mazari (@ShireenMazari1) August 21, 2019The 37-year old actress who was appointed as the goodwill ambassador in 2016 was criticised over her tweet hailing Indian Army amid escalating tensions between India and Pakistan. She made headlines after a US citizen of Pakistani origin, Ayesha Malik, condemned her views at a cosmetics event in Los Angeles last week.Priyanka Chopra tweeted during a time when we were this ?? close to sending nukes to one another. Instead of advocating for peace she tweeted in support of the Indian army pic.twitter.com/LhbMkOW59v— Ayesha Malik (@Spishaa) August 11, 2019The former Miss World’s tweet on February 26 following the Balakot airstrike where Indian Air Force crossed over the border and bombed the headquarter of Pakistan-based militant group, Jaish-e-Mohammad, was cited by Malik as an example of Chopra’s “nationalism” that contrasts her representation as a peace advocate.Jai Hind #IndianArmedForces ?? ??— PRIYANKA (@priyankachopra) February 26, 2019Chopra responded to Malik’s remarks and reasoned that she was “patriotic.””I’m sorry if I hurt sentiments to people who do love me and have loved me, but I think that all of us have a sort of middle ground that we all have to walk, just like you probably do as well,” Chopra said.The actress was recently supported by actor colleague Kangana Ranaut who sympathised with Chopra and said that the situation was that of being stuck between “duty and emotions.””It’s not an easy choice to make… when you are stuck between your duty and your emotions, being a UNICEF goodwill ambassador sure you can’t limit your identity to one nation, but how many of us choose heart over mind every day,” Kangana said in a statement.Lyricist Javed Akhtar also supported the actress and said that her view will “obviously be an Indian point of view.””If there is some kind of a controversy and difference in point of view between an average Indian citizen (like Priyanka Chopra) and the Pakistani establishment, obviously her point of view will be an Indian point of view,” he said at the sidelines of a literary event in Kolkata.The United Nations Security Council has echoed India’s claim of Kashmir issue being an internal matter according to the 1972 Simla Agreement and the Lahore Declaration of 1999.last_img read more

NHRC not performing duties HC

first_imgExpressing its resentment at the role of the National Human Rights Commission (NHRC), the High Court on Wednesday said the state agency is not performing the duties bestowed upon it as per the law, reports UNB.”We’re saddened that the commission hasn’t moved the higher court for a single time although its orders were repeatedly violated,” the bench of justice Sheikh Hassan Arif and justice Rajik-Al-Jalil said while hearing a writ petition over the torture of domestic help Khadija in Mirpur.The court said the NHRC only files reports whereas human rights are violated. “This is not its job. The commission might move the High Court if its orders are not implemented. But they haven’t come to the High Court till today. This is a serious violation of the law. We’re very shocked that the human rights commission is not performing its duties.”It said issuing orders one after another without taking any effective step over the torture of the domestic help manifests human rights commission’s irresponsibility.On 9 January last, the High Court issued a rule asking the authorities concerned to explain as to why the failure of the NHRC to provide appropriate remedy for incidents of human rights violations should not be declared illegal.The court had also directed the home secretary to submit a report within 30 days explaining why no action was taken about the torture of domestic help Khadija on 9 December 2013.Children Charity Foundation sent a letter to the NHRC to take necessary legal steps against the torture on Khadija.During investigation, the NHRC found that the domestic help was tortured after being confined to her employer’s house and she was made to starve. However, police hid all the information and did not record any case in this regard.Later in 2014, the National Human Rights Commission sent a letter to the home secretary to take action in this regard after investigating the allegation brought against police.Although it wrote 18 times till 2018, no action was taken till the date, Halim said, adding that although the NHRC can identify the cases of human rights violations, it cannot provide any remedy to this end.last_img read more

Fort Bend County Fourth in Nation in Incoming Domestic Migration

first_img X Listen To embed this piece of audio in your site, please use this code: Fort Bend County gained about 92,000 people from domestic migration from 2012 to 2017.That places the county on the southwest side of Houston fourth among all U.S. counties when it comes to incoming migration, according to an analysis by RentCafé.And it’s not the only Texas county in the Top 10. It’s joined by Denton, Collin, Bexar and Williamson counties.What do they all have in common? Affordability.In Fort Bend, the median income is more than $93,000 and the median price of a home is $293,000.Compare that to Los Angeles County, which is losing the most residents via domestic migration. There, the median income is $66,000 and the median home price $630,000 – a ratio of almost one to 10.The county with the largest incoming domestic net migration is Maricopa County, home to Phoenix, Arizona. In that case, the climate is likely to also play a role, according to a researcher cited in the study. 00:00 /00:47center_img Ed Schipul/FlickrSugar Land Town Square Sharelast_img read more

Orioles Adam Jones Backs Effort to Enroll Marylanders for Health Insurance

first_imgOrioles star Adam JonesOrioles star Adam Jones is throwing his celebrity behind an effort to get all eligible Marylanders to sign up for health insurance on the Maryland health exchange before the sign-up window closes on Feb. 15.Jones is teaming up with the Maryland Health Care for All! Coalition to release a radio ad encouraging Marylanders to call 211 for information about their health insurance eligibility.The ad begins with a fictional sportscaster running down some of Jones’s numbers from the 2014 season, and asking the centerfielder which of those numbers is most important.“It’s 211,” Jones answers, and when asked what’s important about that number, Jones replies, “On the telephone, you can now call 211 for help with health insurance.”According to Vincent Demarco, a spokesperson for Maryland Health Care for All!, the coalition is comprised of more than 750 faith, community, labor, and health care groups.“The Maryland health exchange is working very well,” Demarco told the AFRO. “Over 190,000 people have enrolled since Nov. 15, and our goal is that every Marylander who’s eligible for health care under the Affordable Care Act gets enrolled.”Demarco said the coalition has been working on the healthcare issue since 1999, and that it has sought to educate Marylanders about the Affordable Care Act since its passage in 2009. The group previously recorded ads with members of the Baltimore and Washington NFL franchises, and reached out to the Orioles for the latest ad, with Adam Jones eventually volunteering for the campaign.“We’re thrilled that [Jones] wants to do this and put his voice to making sure every Marylander who’s eligible for health care gets it,” said Demarco.ralejandro@afro.comlast_img read more
