DMGT sees an uncertain future for ads

first_img KCS-content whatsapp Daily Mail publisher DMGT has warned of uncertainty in the advertising market after seeing revenues from its regional newspaper division slump 12 per cent since the start of the year.This compares to a six per cent fall in the previous quarter and has been partially blamed on tough comparatives owing to increased advertising spend in the run-up to the general election last year.Recruitment advertising at local papers fared even worse, dropping 27 per cent.However, overall revenue at the group was up five per cent.National newspaper advertising rose four per cent, albeit slower than the six per cent growth in the previous quarter. Total revenues for Associated Newspapers were up three per cent despite a drop in circulation revenues. Both the Daily Mail and The Mail on Sunday continued to improve their market share. Business-to-business operations – a standout performer for the group – showed a 10 per cent increase in revenues. Its events division also saw a spike in growth, with revenues up 11 per cent after a string of lucrative events including the New York International Gift Fair and the Adipec oil show in Abu Dhabi.The company cut seven per cent of its staff in the five months to the end of February.Advertising revenues from DMGT’s digital-only businesses, including Mail Online, which the firm bills as the world’s most popular newspaper site – rose four per cent.

County, state and federal government working on post-hurricane recovery

first_img Please enter your comment! Please enter your name here September 24, 2017 at 6:28 pm Support conservation and fish with NEW Florida specialty license plate Free webinar for job seekers on best interview answers, hosted by Goodwill June 11 From Orange County Commissioner Bryan NelsonIn the aftermath of Hurricane Irma, all of Orange County, the State of Florida, and even the Federal Government are working hard to help return our beautiful state and its communities back to normal.Curbside debris removal for Orange County began last week. Given the significant amount of yard debris throughout the County, residents should be aware that it could be several days before yard debris is picked up in their community. County contractors cannot enter private gated communities to remove debris except in the circumstance that the debris presents an immediate threat to safety and/or severe damage. For these communities, an authorized community representative should contact 311 to arrange for permission for the community’s contractor to drop off debris at a designated Citizen Drop-Off Site. Alternatively, the community representative can arrange for a County debris contractor to meet the community’s contractor at or near the entrance of the gated community to accept debris. If residents within a community do not own the property, such as a trailer park, the community must arrange for their own debris removal. Residents who wish to remove debris off of their property sooner may take debris to one of 11 designated Citizen Drop-Off Sites in Orange County. Some local sites include the following: Fort Christmas Park, 1300 Fort Christmas Rd.; Northwest Water Reclamation Facility, 701 W McCormick Rd.; and Zellwood Maintenance Unit, 3500 Golden Gem Rd. These sites are open from 7 AM-7PM Monday through Sunday. Residents will need to bring proof of their Orange County address to gain access and are only permitted to bring vegetative debris (tree limbs, branches, and other organic debris). Regardless of the option they choose for debris removal, residents are asked to separate vegetative debris from storm-related debris, such as shingles and fencing; for curbside pickup, construction debris will be removed separately. Failure to separate these different types of debris will result in neither being collected. In addition, household garbage should not be mixed with storm or construction debris. If residents have questions or would like more information on debris removal, they should visit www.ocfl.net/debris, or contact the Public Works Department at (407) 836-3111.Orange County Commissioner Bryan NelsonIf residents are in need of food and/or water, they can contact Second Harvest Food Bank of Central Florida at (407) 295-1066 to receive assistance in locating an emergency food pantry nearby. Residents can also find an updated list of food pantries at www.feedhopenow.org/disaster. Some local food pantries include the following: Shabach Church, 1403 S Highland Ave, (407) 445-1230, Mondays 3-5 PM and Sundays 8:30-9 AM weekly; Sheeler Oaks SDA, 1822 Sheeler Ave, (407) 925-3598, every other Wednesday 5-6 PM; and UCF Knights Helping Knights Pantry. Residents in need of water and/or ice can also find distributions from local businesses, churches and other residents at http://www.facebook.com/freeiceandwater. Orange County asks that residents who are planning on returning extra supplies purchased in preparation for Hurricane Irma, such as nonperishable food items, to consider donating them to shelters, food pantries, and other charities. Furthermore, residents are asked to continue to conserve their water use by limiting the use of washing machines and dishwashers and taking short showers. Ultimately, cooperation from the County will help crews who are working hard to keep the sanitary sewer system flowing. Lastly, residents who do not have their power restored yet and need to use Wi-Fi can visit all of the Orange County Library locations during regular operating hours.On the state and federal levels, Florida Commissioner of Agriculture Adam Putnam announced on Monday, September 18th, that the U.S. Department of Agriculture accepted a request to allow all students in 48 counties subject to a FEMA Major Disaster Declaration access to free school meals through the National School Lunch Program. These changes are in effect from September 18th-October 20th, and additional counties could be added to the waiver. For more information on these changes and the list of counties that fall under the waiver, citizens can go on the department’s website at www.freshfromflorida.com, contact the department at 1-800-504-6609, or email at [email protected] Additionally, the state, in partnership with the U.S. Department of Agriculture, provided $133 million this week in Supplement Nutrition Assistance Program  (SNAP) benefits for current food stamp recipients in areas most severely impacted by Hurricane Irma; this effort will help current recipients that lost food destroyed due to the hurricane or power outages. Current recipients were given 40% of the amount of their regular September benefits amount; the benefits were loaded into each Electronic Benefits Transfer (EBT) account and can be used in USDA retailers. Furthermore, Department of Children and Families (DCF) has submitted a request to activate Disaster SNAP (also referred to as Food for Florida), a program that offers emergency food benefits to victims of hurricanes and other types of disasters that are not already receiving assistance under the Food Stamp Program, in counties approved for FEMA for Individual Assistance. Where this program is not currently active in Florida, DCF is working with the federal government to activate this program in eligible counties. Floridians interested in this program are directed to check the Florida Department of Children and Families website at http://www.dcf.state.fl.us/programs/access/fff/  for updates and more information.Heart of Florida United Way offers referrals for various community resources, such as emergency food pantries and financial assistance. Residents can contact this organization at 211.  Additionally, Florida Blue, in partnership with New Directions Behavioral Health, is offering emotional support to individuals and their families affected by Hurricane Irma. The companies are providing access to trained behavioral health counselors via a 24-hour, toll-free helpline at 800-843-6514. This service is available to anyone in Florida at no cost, does not require insurance, provides access to referrals to community resources, and is available to English-speaking and Spanish-speaking individuals.Boy Scouts of America has put teams together for yard work and clearing debris. The teams began their cleanup assistance on Sunday. Interested residents who are in need of assistance should contact Fred Hawkins, Jr. at [email protected], and place “Boy Scouts” on the subject of the email. Residents who are interested in volunteering to help clean up in the community may participate in the cleanup of Wekiva Springs State Park for National Public Lands Day on Saturday, September 30th; residents can go to the following link for more information: https://www.floridastateparks.org/park-events/Wekiva-springs.On the federal level, people interested in donating or volunteering to help Floridians can call 800-FL-HELP-1 or visit volunteerflorida.org. Additionally, residents and businesses in need of housing-related and other types of expenses can apply for federal disaster assistance at www.DisasterAssistance.gov or call 800-621-FEMA (3362) (711 or Video Relay Service Available) or 800-462-7585. Applicants should have the following information ready when registering: Social Security number; address of the damaged residence; information for insurance coverage; telephone number; mailing address; bank account and routing numbers for the direct deposit of funds; and financial information.Florida workers and businesses that have been affected by Hurricane Irma are directed to learn more, locate resources, and apply for recovery assistance by visiting www.floridajobs.org. Through this resource, workers and businesses can learn more about how to apply for the Florida Small Business Emergency Bridge Loan Program, Disaster Unemployment Assistance, Disaster Dislocated Worker Program, and can find additional resources related to the aftermath of Hurricane Irma.If residents are looking for more resources and information on recovery from Hurricane Irma in Orange County, they should visit the County’s Irma Recovery website at http://www.ocfl.net/EmergencySafety/HurricaneIrmaRecovery.aspx, and community recovery resources can be found at http://www.ocfl.net/EmergencySafety/Resources.aspx.As more resources become available at all levels of government, we will actively keep you informed.

Dora downtown, up by the Vincent Van Gogh painted wall, and turned left by the lake shore, and on up to Tavares. I wanted to see the seaplane marina area, that was destroyed by the hurricane. We could not tell very much about it, as it was barricaded off, and you could not get down into there to view it. However, I did see the splash pad in operation, and I was not even thinking about it. The last time I was there, I don’t remember seeing it, so it must be fairly new. It was operating, and it had the cutest yellow seaplane or airplane, that appeared to have two side engines with swirling water going around on each side of the plane’s “engines” and it had the buckets that fill up with water and dump on the kids. Really nice features. I thought that Mt. Dora had more destruction from the storm than Tavares, but it may have just been the areas that I saw. I saw some cranes removing trees from roofs, and a boat that had some bad damage. Lots of big pine trees down, and a massive amount of Spanish moss piled up too, but the moss is easy to remove, unlike some of the massive oak tree stumps that had uprooted and I don’t know how they are going to get those removed, I suppose they can, but it will be hard work! I bet to those living along Lake Dora frontage, it must have looked like an ocean out there, looking out their windows during the hurricane!

Nishinomiya is a city located between Osaka and Kobe. The site is situated in a residential neighborhood with typical block layout. According to the local construction policy, there needs to be a fifty-centimeter setback from the site boundary, which allows a one-meter narrow gap between the houses. Normally, each household will have the windows facing the public roads with the curtains shut to keep its privacy. Therefore, openings as such are not providing the occupants with much light, ventilation or views.Save this picture!© Toshiyuki YanoIn this project, we are seeking for a solution, which could bring sufficient daylight into the house without affecting the privacy. To achieve this, we inserted a narrow and linear void in the plot, which divided the house into two parts. This west-east-directional void not only provides both part of the houses with natural light , and also ensures the internal ventilation by connecting the rooms to the open space. The rooms are linked with staircases, which also bridge the two sides of the house and activate this void vertically . To make it more dynamic, we make the staircases tilted and adjusted them to the windows. So the occupants could enjoy the changing views from various angles .Save this picture!© Toshiyuki YanoSave this picture!Sectional PerspectiveSave this picture!© Toshiyuki YanoNatural light, wind and greenery are inserted into the house through this void, which engages the house to its surrounding and contextualizes itself in the city subtly. In this way, we hope the house could have a spatial dialogue with the nature and the city three-dimensionally via this slit-shaped open space, and have a comfort balance between freedom and privacy.Save this picture!© Toshiyuki YanoProject gallerySee allShow lessHouse on the Sea / Pitsou Kedem ArchitectsSelected ProjectsJanzi Box / CLOUSelected Projects Share CopyHouses•Japan Architects: Alphaville Architects Area Area of this architecture project “COPY” CopyAbout this officeAlphaville ArchitectsOfficeFollowProductsWoodSteel#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesJapanPublished on October 23, 2015Cite: “Slice of the City / Alphaville Architects” 22 Oct 2015.

Maduro meets U.S. anti-war delegation, says, ‘Humanity’s battle is between socialism and capitalism’

first_imgFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare this Workers World online editor John Steffin interviewed Sara Flounders, co-director of the International Action Center, on March 17. Flounders is in Caracas, Venezuela, as part of a solidarity delegation of a dozen anti-war leaders from all over North America, organized and sponsored by the U.S. Peace Council. Members of the delegation arrived in Caracas on March 9 and 10. As of March 18, the delegates have finally begun returning home after American Airlines canceled their flights. A full list of the participants is at the end of this article.Workers World: We saw pictures posted on social media of Peace Council delegates meeting with President Nicolás Maduro. What was the purpose of the meeting?Sara Flounders: The U.S. Peace Council delegates, Comité de Solidaridad Internacional Venezuela (COSI) and President Maduro met to discuss strengthening cooperation and communication. Suggestions were for sending more delegations to Venezuela and more social media exchanges. When Maduro heard from Sarah Martin that there was a demonstration for Venezuela in Minneapolis happening that day, he immediately sent a twitter message to them.The Venezuelans are very supportive of the upcoming action on March 30 in support of the Bolivarian Revolution in Washington, D.C. They see it as a next step in solidarity in response to the crisis. We told Maduro that the Boston Bus Drivers Union (Steelworkers Local 8751) were driving a bus to D.C. and Maduro said he was ready to join them!WW: That’s great to hear. I’m sure they would be happy to have him. What is Maduro’s perspective on the current situation?SF: Maduro said that for 200 years, since the time of Simon Bolivar and U.S. President James Monroe, there has been a struggle between sovereignty and colonialism. But in a larger way the battle of all humanity today is a struggle between socialism and capitalism. He said they face right now the heaviest sanctions ever imposed! Even for essential medicines. All their accounts are stolen. The situation is so severe that they are preparing for the U.S. to attack. Through Community Councils, the organizing units are being told to start storing food, water, batteries.While we met, Maduro received a threatening tweet from Marco Rubio and one from Elliott Abrams. He read them to us with great laughter. He said his government always has to be ready to talk, of course. But Venezuela’s path is determined by all the people, not by a government Washington appoints.WW: And what is the determination of the Venezuelan people?SF: After our meeting, we could see the level of determination first hand. We went to the People’s Encampment guarding the Presidential Palace. Thousands are rotating on security 24 hours a day in anticipation of an imperialist attack on the president. We saw people’s militias and mass outpourings of organized community groups, housing groups, student groups, etc. That day (March 15) the Oil Workers Union had a big rally. They said: We are armed and ready to defend what belongs to all of us. Madeline Arias, head of the Ministry of Urban Agriculture, introduced us to the union that day, and the union let us each give a short revolutionary greeting to the demonstration. The petroleum union’s women’s caucus told us they want to meet with women from the United States.Since we were unable to return home as expected, we also attended a massive demonstration in support of the Bolivarian Revolution on Saturday, March 16. There were tens of thousands of people out in the streets. Hundreds of buses brought people into the city from surrounding areas. These kinds of demonstrations have been taking place every Saturday since the coup.WW: The corporate media in the U.S. say that the people do not support Maduro. Based on what you’ve told us, that is another imperialist lie.SF: Absolutely. These massive rallies really confirm that the people are mobilized, determined, very enthusiastic and combative. They come with their unions, housing or community groups, schools. They know the right wing is mobilizing. So they are determined to far outnumber them. It is a political battle in every sense.The U.S. Peace Council delegation consists of Bahman Azad, the organizational secretary of the U.S. Peace Council; Ajamu Baraka, national coordinator of Black Alliance for Peace; progressive journalist Eva Bartlett; Gerry Condon, president of Veterans For Peace; Darien De Lu, president of the Women’s International League for Peace and Freedom-U.S.; Miguel Figueroa, president of the Canadian Peace Congress; Sara Flounders, co-coordinator of the International Action Center; Margaret Flowers of Popular Resistance; Joe Lombardo, co-coordinator of the United National Antiwar Coalition; Sarah Martin of Women Against Military Madness; Daniel Shea, board of directors, Veterans For Peace; and Kevin Zeese of Popular Resistance.last_img read more

Ali Lmrabet

first_img Ali Lmrabet has been gagged in his country since 2005, when he was sentenced to a 10-year-ban on working as journalist for writing in a report for the Spanish daily El Mundo that the Sahrawis living in camps on the outskirts of the Algerian town of Tindouf were “refugees” and not “hostages” held against their will, as the Moroccan government tends to claim. The Moroccan penal code makes no provision for such a ban. He was previously sentenced in 2003 to three years in prison on a charge of “undermining respect for the king” for publishing cartoons of the monarchy and an interview with a left-wing former prisoner (calling himself as a “republican”) in his weekly Demain. After being held for eight months and staging a hunger strike for 50 days, he was released on a pardon from King Mohammed in January 2004. Nowadays, he lives in the northern city of Tétouan and, since 2011, has edited the Demain Online website, defying the ban on journalistic work. “Without censorship or self-censorship, except as regards people’s honour and dignity,” he says.
