Battle for the next stage of TV heats up

first_img Battle for the next stage of TV heats up DESPITE the ubiquity of the internet, television viewing habits on both sides of the Atlantic remain doggedly traditional.However, the battle for control of the next generation of TV viewers is hotting up. Manufacturers, such as Samsung are already rolling out internet-ready TVs as they prepare for a monumental shift in viewing habits. BBC’s hugely popular iPlayer on-demand service has proved UK viewers are prepared to log on to tune in.Now a host of firms hope to take the concept to the next level and, more importantly, monetise it.Apple, which has already revolutionised the music market, hopes to ride the crest of this wave. It is expected to next week announce a new service allowing users to rent TV shows and movies for as little as $1 (64p).And yesterday Walt Disney-owned ABC said yesterday it will launch its first video-on-demand site outside the US by streaming its content on BT Vision.The internet TV market-place in the US is already highly competitive, with Hulu, a joint venture between Disney, News Corp and NBC Universal, making in-roads on the dominance of user-generated video site YouTube. The potential value of internet streaming has led to speculation Hulu could be in line for an IPO valuing the firm at a staggering $2bn.So is this the beginning of the end for traditional broadcasters? Ian Maude, analyst with Enders Analysis, is not so sure. He told City A.M.: “At the moment most content providers use internet TV to support existing revenue rather than generate it, by giving subscribers free online access to shows.“The margins can be very high with online TV but the question is whether there is enough appetite for premium shows over the internet to sustain it. I can see why providers are getting involved – it could be a huge revenue stream in the future. But it is the first step in a very long road.” KCS-content whatsapp whatsapp Tags: NULL More From Our Partners Killer drone ‘hunted down a human target’ without being told tonypost.comA ProPublica investigation has caused outrage in the U.S. this weekvaluewalk.comBrave 7-Year-old Boy Swims an Hour to Rescue His Dad and Little Sistergoodnewsnetwork.orgRussell Wilson, AOC among many voicing support for Naomi Osakacbsnews.comAstounding Fossil Discovery in California After Man Looks Closelygoodnewsnetwork.org980-foot skyscraper sways in China, prompting panic and evacuationsnypost.comNative American Tribe Gets Back Sacred Island Taken 160 Years Agogoodnewsnetwork.orgI blew off Adam Sandler 22 years ago — and it’s my biggest regretnypost.comPolice Capture Elusive Tiger Poacher After 20 Years of Pursuing the Huntergoodnewsnetwork.org Thursday 26 August 2010 7:59 pm Show Comments ▼ Share last_img read more

Foto de Lynette Wilson/ENS.[Episcopal News Service] Al volar sobre Los Ángeles, la vastedad de la ciudad se visualiza ostensiblemente. Sus pequeños edificios y el concreto emblanquecido por el sol se extienden interminablemente, pero mire usted con mayor atención al área metropolitana y, en las comunidades, escuelas y patios de iglesias, hallará huertos.Los huertos son parte del plan de la Diócesis de Los Ángeles de responder a la seguridad alimentaria en la comunidades a las que sirven sus parroquias, y una de las formas de cuidar del medioambiente.En una de las ciudades más grandes de la nación y en el estado de mayor producción agrícola, la gente no tiene acceso a frutas y hortalizas frescas. A través de Semillas de Esperanza [Seeds of Hope] y La Mesa Abundante [The Abundant Table], la diócesis está haciendo algo al respecto.Hace tres años, el obispo de Los Ángeles, J. Jon Bruno, decidió abordar con seriedad el problema de la inseguridad alimentaria en su diócesis y creó Semillas de Esperanza, que trabaja con congregaciones, comunidades y escuelas para convertir las tierras baldías en huertos productivos de verduras y frutales a fin de brindarles alimentos frescos y saludables a los residentes de la localidad.“En Los Ángeles, el acceso a alimentos nutritivos es un lujo”, dijo el Rdo. Andrew K. Barnett, que preside los estudios medioambientales y la justicia alimentaria del obispo. “Si vives en una comunidad de bajos ingresos, es mucho más fácil obtener comida chatarra”.La posibilidad de alimentos frescos versus la comida chatarra de preparación rápida ha dado lugar a una diferencia de 12 años en la esperanza de vida entre los residentes de barrios de bajos ingresos y los que viven en barrios de moderados a elevados ingresos, añadió Barnett.“Nos fijamos en eso y dijimos, ‘eso es inaceptable, eso está mal’”.Hasta mediado de los años 50, “el Condado de Los Ángeles era el primer condado de producción agrícola… del mundo”, dijo Tim Alderson, director ejecutivo de Semillas de Esperanza, en un vídeo de la Diócesis de Los Ángeles. En el momento de la fundación de la diócesis hace casi 120 años, el 40 por ciento de la población participaba directamente en la agricultura.“En la actualidad, el 1 por ciento de la población se dedica a alimentar al resto de nosotros, lo cual ha creado una verdadera desconexión entre nosotros y las fuentes de nuestros alimentos, y eso ha llevado a la obesidad, la diabetes, [y] otros trastornos metabólicos que nos afectan en todo sentido”, afirmó Alderson.“Tenemos personas en nuestra diócesis que no saben de donde ha de venir la próxima comida y esas mismas personas son obesas”.Semillas de Esperanza asume un enfoque diocesano a la producción y distribución de alimentos, y sirve también para desarrollar los recursos necesarios al objeto de facultar a parroquias, escuelas y otras [instituciones] para que comiencen a cosechar alimentos. La intención es hacer un impacto directo en la salud y el bienestar, tanto física como espiritualmente, de las personas de la comunidad.“Todo llega desproporcionadamente a las personas que viven en la pobreza”, dijo Alderson en una entrevista con Episcopal News Service luego del foro del 24 de marzo sobre la crisis del cambio climático. “Decidimos que necesitábamos abordar este grave problema en las comunidades subatendidas a las que servimos”.A diferencia de lo que ocurre en otras naciones, los estadounidenses que viven en la pobreza tienen más probabilidades de ser obesos, y es más probable que vivan en desiertos alimentarios, o en zonas donde el acceso a los alimentos frescos esté limitado.El Condado de Los Ángeles abarca más de 10.000 kilómetros cuadrados y es el lugar de residencia de 10 millones de personas; de las cuales 1.800.000, o el 18 por ciento, viven en la pobreza.La diócesis – que se extiende por el norte hasta la ciudad de Santa María, en el Condado de Santa Bárbara, hasta San Clemente, en el extremo sur del Condado de Orange, al este hasta la frontera de Arizona y al oeste hasta el océano Pacífico— abarca una gran área geográfica y cuenta con 139 congregaciones, 40 escuelas y 20 instituciones.Tim Alderson, director de Semillas de Esperanza, recoge naranjas para la despensa del Centro de la Catedral. Foto, cortesía de la Diócesis de Los Ángeles.Ciento ocho congregaciones participan en Semillas de Esperanza, ya sea plantando o distribuyendo alimentos o ambas cosas, y la mitad de sus escuelas tienen huertos. Mediante un contrato con el Departamento de Salud Pública de Los Ángeles, ofrece cursos de cocina/nutrición y salud a residentes de bajos ingresos en 17 iglesias de comunidades subatendidas, explicó Alderson.Desde su fundación en enero de 2013, Semillas de Esperanza ha crecido de un personal de solo un miembro a 16, entre ellos 3 empleados de jornada completa, tres de media jornada y 10 voluntarios y, mediante la suma de esfuerzos, está produciendo anualmente 50 toneladas de frutas y hortalizas —800.000 raciones—y proporcionándoles alimentos a aproximadamente unas 30.000 familias al mes a través de las despensas de alimentos.“También servimos más de 30.000 comidas cada mes a personas necesitadas en varios programas de alimentos”, agregó Alderson.Plantando un huerto en la iglesia episcopal del Buen Pastor en Los Ángeles. Foto, cortesía de la Diócesis de Los Ángeles.Al norte de Los Ángeles,  en más de 2 hectáreas del Condado de Ventura, La Mesa Abundante produce más de 50 variedades de frutas y hortalizas, entre ellas remolacha, zanahorias, rábanos, berzas, ajíes chiles, tomates, lechugas y coles.Además de alimentar a los 150 miembros de su programa agrícola de apoyo comunitario, los agricultores venden productos frescos a las escuelas locales y donan el 10 por ciento de su cosecha a un banco de alimentos.Sin embargo, La Mesa Abundante es algo más que una granja, un programa de capacitación y un lugar donde los estudiantes, agrupaciones de jóvenes y otros pueden obtener una experiencia práctica acerca de los alimentos. Su misión se arraiga en la justicia alimentaria: garantizar que las personas tengan acceso a alimentos frescos y nutritivos, que se respeten los derechos de los obreros agrícolas y que a los trabajadores les paguen un salario justo.“Un valor fundacional de nosotros es la justicia alimentaria”, dijo Sarah Nolan, directora de programas y de asociaciones comunitarias.Como ministerio ecuménico e interreligioso de las iglesias Episcopal y Luterana, la iglesia agrícola invita a las personas de todas las tradiciones religiosas a explorar la espiritualidad en conexión con la tierra.“Estamos en verdad tratando de desarrollar un ecosistema que cree un modelo económicamente viable de iglesia y granja”, dijo Nolan, añadiendo que es experimental y que están contemplando cómo el trabajo agrícola apoya al culto y viceversa.El año pasado, La Iglesia Agrícola de la Mesa Abundante recibió una subvención de $100.000 de una iniciativa de la Iglesia Episcopal destinada a la apertura de nuevas iglesias. La subvención fue financiada a través del presupuesto trienal de las Cinco Marcas de la Misión. En este caso, la Iglesia Agrícola de la Mesa Abundante epitomiza la Primera Marca de la Misión: proclamar las buenas nuevas del reino.“La Mesa Abundante es una comunidad de práctica que encarna un testimonio jubiloso y profético del poder de las relaciones justas, no sólo de unos con otros, sino también con la tierra y con los alimentos”, dijo el Rdo. Thomas Brackett, misionero de la Sociedad Misionera Nacional y Extranjera (DFMS) para la apertura de nuevas iglesias e iniciativas misionales, en un mensaje de e-mail.“[Inspira] medidas prudentes que sostienen a comunidades que, de manera deliberada, se arraigan en las prácticas antiguas de seguir a Jesús.  Fue el criterio de nuestro consejo de financiación de la Primera Marca [de la Misión] que probablemente necesitemos 1.000 ministerios más de La Mesa Abundante a través de Estados Unidos. ¡Sarah Nolan y Amy Grossman marchan al frente por una senda que todos debemos finalmente hacer al andar!”.El año pasado, la DFMS le otorgó a Nolan una beca de mayordomía ambiental mediante la cual ella está trabajando en la creación de una red episcopal nacional en torno a los ministerios agrícolas y de alimentos.“Hay tantas personas que ya están haciendo cosas”, dijo ella, además de bancos de alimentos y huertos. El Centro Beecken de la Escuela de Teología de Sewanee, por ejemplo, ha creado la Granja de la Fe y la Red de Alimentos.Una de las principales interrogantes que ella y otros se hacen es: si la Iglesia episcopal se ve a sí misma como un sistema de [provisión de] alimentos, ¿qué haríamos de manera diferente?” Entonces las preguntas subsecuentes podrían ser: ¿cómo usaríamos los campamentos y los centros de conferencia de distinta manera? ¿Cómo conectaríamos a las iglesias con granjeros nuevos y principiantes? ¿Cómo se relacionan los bancos de alimentos con las granjas locales? ¿Cómo surge la liturgia de lo que hacemos?En California, que está entrando en su cuarto año de sequía y los granjeros se han visto forzados a dejar que los cultivos se pudran en los campos, hablar de justicia alimentaria es un pretexto para iniciar debates acerca de las maneras de abordar el cambio climático.“Creo que la facultad de conectarse con el sitio de donde provienen nuestros alimentos y también de participar en el proceso de crecimiento crea una relación con la tierra que da lugar a una actitud de humildad y de asombro ante la creación de Dios. De muchas formas, sabemos que es difícil expresar amor y cuidado por alguien o por alguna cosa sin una relación”, dijo Nolan.“No creo que podamos incluso comenzar a abordar los problemas que rodean al cambio climático sin desarrollar una relación con la tierra y con las personas más afectadas por las consecuencias del calentamiento global”, añadió. “Espero que todos los niños, jóvenes y adultos que visiten nuestras granjas den un paso, sino más, hacia la restauración de una relación con las plantas, los animales, el suelo y todas las complejas relaciones que constituyen nuestro planeta. Para La Mesa Abundante es labor de la Iglesia (especialmente una Iglesia eucarística) ayudar a restaurar esas relaciones mediante el cultivo y el reparto de alimentos y de invitar a otros a que se nos unan en esa labor”.Nota de la redactora: Todos los viernes, durante estos 30 Días de Acción, les invitamos a explorar cómo el cultivo y el reparto de alimentos en su familia, en su comunidad y en su cultura le acerca a la invitación de Dios a todos nosotros de “cultivar y guardar” la tierra.– Lynette Wilson es redactora y reportera de Episcopal News Service.

The majority of today’s open-plan, column-free buildings that are constructed out of iron employ world-renowned Japanese welding techniques of the kind typically seen in shipbuilding. Because clients wish to use the thinnest steel plates possible, there are all kinds of difficulties over what kind of specialist paints and insulating materials are used to treat the exterior iron plates for heat regulation. However, for this residential building we used a simple method that would not require specialist workers, resulting in a versatile construction that is well suited to heat regulation and can be build anywhere in the world due to its thin-walled structure. Save this picture!© Hiroshi UedaLocated in a residential area of central Tokyo, the building occupies a narrow 5 x 16 meter plot on a north-south axis, two meters above street level. At street level the building has a reinforced concrete garage (below ground), while above ground it consists of a four-level living space made of thin steel walls. The exterior walls of this ten-meter-tall building are bolted together from supporting beams made of lightweight, breathable material, which, including the wooden finish, is 100 mm thick. We continued the use lightweight, breathable materials in the interior spaces, bolstering the ability of the exterior to regulate heat and preserving a comfortable temperature inside. Save this picture!© Hiroshi UedaThe exterior appearance was decided in accordance with setback zoning laws, and the south facade faces the sun, is covered with dual-layer expanding metal that limits sight lines from outside. We also allowed southern light to enter the building by incorporating a roof terrace and atrium. It is our hope that this kind of adaptable approach to construction will be adopted somewhere in the world.

There do not seem to be a lot of donors who are willing to stand up, challenge and inspire their peers to give,” she told business leaders at an event organised by the new philanthropic organisation, Giving Northern Ireland in association with the Institute of Directors.

NAO report reveals catalogue of failures over management of Libor Fund

first_imgNAO report reveals catalogue of failures over management of Libor Fund About Melanie May Melanie May is a journalist and copywriter specialising in writing both for and about the charity and marketing services sectors since 2001. She can be reached via www.thepurplepim.com.  99 total views,  1 views today Advertisement Melanie May | 11 September 2017 | News  100 total views,  2 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis1center_img The National Audit Office’s investigation into the Libor Fund has revealed a catalogue of failures including a lack of transparency over where the money has been distributed and how it is being spent, with millions still be to awarded.The total amount allocated to the fund so far is £973 million, collected from fines to banks that manipulated Libor for profit as well as foreign exchange markets following international investigations in 2012 and 2015. However, questions from the government and the media over the transparency of how the money has been so far distributed led to the NAO investigation, the findings of which were published on 8 September.On spend, key findings include:The Government has committed £933 million from the Libor Fund, but cannot yet confirm that all the money has been used as intended. 729 grants have been awarded to 639 charities and causes, with an average grant of £0.8 million. However, HM Treasury and the MoD cannot confirm that charities spent all grants as intended, and the MoD is now conducting a retrospective review of all grants awarded since 2012 to this effect.In fact, of the £933 million committed to the fund, £141 million committed to the Covenant Fund has yet to be spent, while £40 million of the Libor Fund is still held by the Treasury, and has yet to be committed to any scheme.Of the £592 million distributed through grants, two thirds (£385 million) has been awarded following requests for funding made directly to the Chancellor of the Exchequer from charities, MPs and government departments. The remaining £207 million was spent through competitive application processes managed by the Treasury and MoD.Additional findings:The government also cannot demonstrate the impact the Libor grant fund has had, due to a failure to evaluate the impact of the grant schemes on the charity sector. It has committed to completing an external evaluation by December 2018, by which time over 80% of the fund will have been awarded.Despite the Government pledging £200 million of the Fund to support 50,000 new apprenticeships, the Department for Education was not directed to use the £200 million to pursue a specific policy to deliver apprenticeships for unemployed 22-24 year olds and cannot demonstrate whether 50,000 new apprenticeships for this group have been provided.Terms and conditions were not attached as standard to all grants until Autumn Statement 2015. Between October 2012 when the first HM Treasury Libor grant was awarded up to and including the summer budget in July 2015, 67 grants totalling £272 million were made by HMT and other departments from the HMT Libor scheme. £196 million of the £272 million grants were given out without any terms and conditions attached of which HMT state that £139 million did not require them.

Stop the war against Black and Brown communities!

first_imgFollowing the 2014 police murders of Eric Gardner and Michael Brown, activists raised concerns about an “epidemic” of police brutality.  Six years later it is clear that Black and Brown communities, living under police occupation, are confronting a very real war. The numbers do not lie. Documented police killings of people of color since 2014 have averaged three or more per day.  Police officers charged for these murders remain in the single digits. Only a handful have been convicted. This year the video-recorded police murder of George Floyd, who was choked to death under the knee of a Minneapolis police officer, rocked the world.  Protests erupted in U.S. cities, coast-to-coast, leading to global protests against police brutality and historic white supremacy.  In a serious challenge to systemic racism, people tore down monuments to historic slave traders and Confederate advocates. Following the outrage over George Floyd’s death, news surfaced about the earlier police killing of emergency medical technician Breonna Taylor in Louisville, Ky. Taylor was murdered when police invaded her home in March on a ‘no-knock’ warrant, firing numerous rounds of bullets at her and surrounding neighbors.  This week a grand jury charged one police officer involved in her murder with “endangering [white] neighbors,” but filed no charges connected to Taylor’s murder.The resulting community outrage and protests were expected.  Taylor’s family has launched an important campaign to demand the release of the grand jury reports, including police video. Taylor’s case, following Floyd’s, opened the flood gates for reports of long buried cases of police brutality to surface.  The Taylor family’s courageous stance against the grand juries’ refusal to bring charges against police is encouraging families of other victims of police brutality to speak up.Unlike Floyd’s murder, Taylor’s was allegedly not captured on video, a situation all too prevalent for many police brutality victims. But even when there is recorded evidence of police misconduct, it is often buried. News of Daniel Prude’s murder by police in Rochester, N.Y., also in March, surfaced only in September.Now more cases are being aired.In February, Boston police shot 31 times in three seconds, killing 41-year-old Juston Root, who was on the ground, unarmed and seriously injured after a car chase. This case is now being reviewed.The Joliet, Ill., police department faces a wrongful death lawsuit involving Eric Lurry, a 37-year-old Black man who died on Jan. 28 after police shoved a baton down his throat while he was handcuffed. They repeatedly hit him and pinched his nose for nearly two minutes. Police later claimed Lurry died from “a drug overdose” and buried a video of the incident for months.An updated list of Black and Brown victims of police brutality can be found at #SayTheirNames.These reports come in addition to the murders of two Black men – Ahmaud Arbery in Georgia and Michael Williams in Iowa – at the hands of racist white vigilantes.Increased attempts to suppress the votes from Black and Brown communities must also be seen as part of this war.Attacks on First Amendment rightsEncouraged by Trump, in recent weeks police have been supported by right-wing forces, including the Proud Boys and individuals like Kyle Rittenhouse, who opened fire on unarmed protesters. Since George Floyd’s murder, there have been 66 reported incidents of white supremacists driving vehicles into protests to intentionally injure or even kill demonstrators.  The most recent were in Los Angeles, Buffalo, and Albuquerque.  Now Trump wants a bill to protect people who attack protesters.Trump is not alone. Since 2017, legislatures and governors in nearly 20 states promoted bills intended to criminalize protesters, in clear violation of the First Amendment.For all too long, the failure of the judicial system to hold police accountable for brutality against people of color has emboldened them. Coupled with a political system in which police organizations can pressure or prompt judges to rule in their favor, police have been given impunity to murder people of color.The increased militarization of domestic police forces has exacerbated the problem.  Residents of Black and Brown communities are treated much like occupied people in Iraq, Afghanistan, and Palestine. U.S. police departments are increasingly using tanks, bayonets, rubber bullets and grenades – weapons of war.In the 1960s, Workers World Party popularized the slogan “Stop the war against Black America” in response to assaults on the Black Panther Party, Civil Rights activists, and other Black community leaders.  We need to revive this slogan as “Stop the war on Black and Brown communities!” and “Stop the war on Black Lives Matter!”   But beyond raising a slogan, workers must organize to elevate class solidarity against this racist war and the corrupt capitalist economic system that profits from it.

It would cause great harm if the Ugandan courts were to use the sedition charge to hand down an excessively severe sentence. We also think it is not the Broadcasting Council’s role to say that a producer should be dismissed.”Among the programmes broadcast when KFM went back on the air yesterday was the ‘Andrew Mwenda Live’ discussion programme. It was the 10 August edition of this programme that led to the suspension of the station’s licence.The payment of 4.95 million shillings (about 2,200 euros) in damages and the dismissal of the producer of ‘Andrew Mwenda Live’ were the council’s conditions for allowing the station back on the air.Mwenda, who was arrested on 12 August and freed on bail on 15 August, faces a five-year prison sentence when he is tried on the sedition charge on 29 August. During his 10 August programme, Mwenda accused the Ugandan government of putting Garang in a poor-quality helicopter and described President Museveni as a coward and a failure. That same day, President Museveni had threatened to close down news media that continue to refer to terrorism and sabotage as the possible causes of Garang’s death. Organisation last_img read more
