Cancer Patient Navigation Program Extended

first_imgCancer patients in two more areas of the province now have accessto Cancer Patient Navigation, a support program for cancerpatients and their families. Official program launches will take place Tuesday, Sept. 23, inthe region served by Annapolis Valley Health and on Wednesday,Sept. 24 in the area served by South Shore Health. That means cancer patients in five of the province’s nine healthdistricts will now have access to the program, which providesimproved access and enhanced co-ordination of treatment, follow-up and support services to cancer patients. Special staffmembers, known as “navigators,” ensure patients have theinformation, knowledge and support they need as they journeythrough the cancer care system. The navigators work closely withfamily doctors, cancer specialists, patients and their familiesto strengthen community cancer services. “Patients have told us that cancer treatment is like goingthrough a maze,” said Dr. Andrew Padmos, commissioner, CancerCare Nova Scotia “We listened and responded by developing CancerPatient Navigation for Nova Scotians. Now, the rest of Canada islooking to us on how they too, can enhance access for theirpatients.” Since the program was launched in February 2002 in three earlyadopter districts (Pictou County, Guysborough Antigonish Straitand South West Health), navigators have worked with more than 900patients and 300 family members, physicians and other healthprofessionals. “This program provides tremendous support to cancer patients andtheir families in Nova Scotia,” said Premier John Hamm. “I’mextremely pleased to see that it is being expanded to two moreregions in our province.” “I’d also like to commend Cancer Care Nova Scotia for the hardwork they have done on the development and implementation of thisimportant program.” “A cancer diagnosis can have an overwhelming impact on the livesof patients and their families,” said Health Minister AngusMacIsaac. “Having a helping hand to navigate them through thisprocess is not only comforting, it also makes sure that they havethe information, knowledge, and support they need to cope andheal to meet the future.” About 24,000 Nova Scotians are living with cancer. Almost 4,000of them are living with cancer in regions served by South ShoreHealth and Annapolis Valley Health. During the next year about5,000 new cases will be diagnosed, 800 in these two districts. “With the launch of the Patient Navigation Program, cancerpatients in Annapolis Valley Health (AVH), will now have moresupport and assistance in our district,” said Anne McGuire, CEO,Annapolis Valley Health. “The AVH Cancer Care Committee found thenavigation role is a top priority for patients and familiescoping with a cancer diagnosis. Working in partnership withCancer Care Nova Scotia, AVH will be able to help cancerpatients, their families and loved ones find the best care andservices possible during their treatment and beyond.” “We are pleased to be working in partnership with Cancer CareNova Scotia to provide a service that will positively impact thelives of hundreds of cancer patients and their families in ourDistrict,” said South Shore Health’s CEO Kevin McNamara. “PatientNavigation will improve access to, and co-ordination of, cancerservices and greatly enhance the quality of cancer care providedin our hospitals and in the community.” During extensive consultation, cancer patients, family members,health professionals, community organizations and volunteersindicated that patients need more care from the time ofdiagnosis, more timely information and more involvement by thefamily doctor. These recommendations formed the foundation forPatient Navigation. A formal evaluation of Patient Navigation is currently underwayin the early adopter districts. The evaluation will clarify therole of the patient navigator and ways of improving co-ordinationand continuity of care. Evaluation results will be available inNovember 2003. Cancer Care Nova Scotia is a program of the Department of Health,created to reduce the burden of cancer on individuals, familiesand the health-care system through prevention, screening,education and research.last_img read more

CDRO condemns custodial death of Patnaik Harijan

first_imgNew Delhi: The Coordination of Democratic Rights Organisation (CDRO) condemned on Sunday the death of Patnaik Harijan, a 45-year-old undertrial from Kalahandi District in Odisha’s Niyamgiri area, who was brought to a government hospital in Burla by Bhawanipatna jail authorities, where he was under judicial custody for the last four months.Following the news of what CDRO called the custodial death of Harijan, villagers started gathering in angry protest, after which CDO said that the government imposed Also Read – Uddhav bats for ‘Sena CM’Section 144 in the area around the refinery plant when his body was brought to the village.The CDRO said, in its statement, that Harijan’s arrest and death have caused unimaginable distress to his family. “CDRO demands a judicial probe into the custodial death of the undertrial prisoner caused by sheer medical negligence. While in prison, his family or friends were not informed of his illness or his being taken to the hospital. This makes the circumstances of his illness and subsequent death even more suspicious,” the statement read. The organisation said that Harijan was one among the 29 randomly arrested after violence erupted in protests against the death of a contract worker who succumbed to injuries inflicted by a vicious lathi charge by the Odisha Industrial Security Force in March 2019 at the gates of the refinery plant.last_img read more

Feds accept new info on planned nuclearwaste bunker near Lake Huron

first_imgTORONTO – A proposal to bury tonnes of radioactive waste in a bunker near Lake Huron has moved a step toward a decision on whether the multibillion-dollar project can proceed.Federal authorities say they are satisfied Ontario Power Generation has provided additional information they had asked for about the project.In a notice to interested parties this week, the Canadian Environmental Assessment Agency said it would now begin drafting a report to Environment Minister Catherine McKenna, who will have final say over the deep geologic repository. The agency will also update any conditions it thinks should be imposed if the plan gets the go-ahead.The agency said the public will get a chance to comment on both the draft and any conditions before McKenna makes her decision, now expected by the end of the year. It also said it plans to have its draft report available sometime this summer.The contentious proposal, years in development, has drawn the ire of scores of communities that argue it is irresponsible to bury the low- and mid-level nuclear waste at the Bruce nuclear power plant near Kincardine, Ont. They worry about the danger the material — hazardous for thousands of years — could pose to Great Lakes drinking water.In 2015, an independent joint review panel concluded the Bruce site was appropriate, putting the ball in the federal government’s court. However, Ottawa has repeatedly delayed making any decisions.Last year, the agency requested information on other possible sites to bury the waste but was dissatisfied with OPG’s initial response and requested further information. The utility provided the additional data last month.OPG, which insists the proposal is safe and the best long-term storage option, said Tuesday the new information shows that building a storage facility elsewhere in Ontario would be more damaging to the environment, drive costs significantly higher, and cause years of delay — without offering any safety benefits.Critics, however, are far from persuaded the utility has provided meaningful information to the government.In a letter to the agency, the group SOS Great Lakes says the OPG report contains information that is wrong, vague and dismissive of the risks. The group also repeats its opposition to what it calls a “dangerous and deeply flawed” project, and criticizes the “political process” involved in getting Kincardine in midwestern Ontario to act as a “willing host.”“We find that OPG has in no way strengthened their case,” the letter states. “The fundamental flaws are still there in the additional information.”Currently projected to cost about $2.4 billion, the proposal calls for burying hundreds of thousands of cubic metres of radioactive waste 680 metres below ground in a rock bunker located about 1.2 kilometres from Lake Huron.OPG argues the rock is geologically stable and would provide a hermetic seal to prevent any radioactivity reaching the lake for tens of thousands of years.However, communities and environmental groups on both sides of the Canada-U.S. border argue such a facility could threaten drinking water for millions of people. Several American politicians have called on both the Canadian and American governments to intervene to stop the project.last_img read more

Governments agree to protect endangered sharks under UNbacked treaty

The agreement, already signed by 11 States with a potential membership of over 100 countries, bolsters the conservation of migratory sharks through coordinated research and management of their populations, as well as other measures such as enforcing existing laws concerning illegal fishing and trade. All seven shark species in the CMS appendices – the great white, basking, whale, porbeagle, spiny dogfish, shortfin and longfin mako sharks – are covered under this agreement.“This first global CMS instrument on commercially exploited species is a decisive step forward in international shark conservation,” said Elizabeth Mrema, Executive Secretary of the CMS, which is administered by the UN Environment Programme (UNEP).“Wildlife conventions, UN agencies and international fisheries need to work together to preventthese creatures that roam the world’s oceans from becoming extinct,” added Ms. Mrema.The CMS agreement, concluded at a gathering of government representatives in the Philippines, aims to restore the long-term viability of populations of migratory sharks.UNEP noted that over-fishing, fisheries by-catch, illegal trade, habitat destruction, depletion of prey species, pollution with a high risk of mercury intoxication, boat strikes and the impact of climate change on the marine environment all seriously threaten sharks.Gestation periods of up to 22 months, a life expectancy of up to 100 years, relatively low reproductive rates, migratory patterns, and low natural mortality combine to make the protection of some species and their habitat difficult and make sharks particularly vulnerable with little chance to recover if over-fished.In addition, whale shark meat has been increasingly considered as a high-grade, exotic product since the late 1980s, and according to TRAFFIC – a wildlife trade monitoring network – prices have skyrocketed to $7,000 for 2,000 kilograms in Taiwan, for example.According to the UN Food and Agricultural Organization (FAO), up to 900,000 tons of sharks have been caught every year for the last two decades, and calculating for illegal, unreported, unregulated fishing and missing data, the actual catch figure is estimated to be at least twice as high.Studies show that shark populations collapsed in both in the Gulf of Mexico and in the Mediterranean Sea by 90 per cent, and by 75 per cent in the north-western Atlantic Ocean within 15 years, said UNEP. 16 February 2010A landmark agreement to protect the sharply declining number of sharks was reached today under the United Nations-backed Convention on the Conservation of Migratory Species of Wild Animals (CMS). read more

ISISLanka link revealed in probe on Indian girl

The arrest came after the ATS began tracking a conversation between the teenager and her recruiters from other countries. The girl allegedly came under the thrall of the terror group four months back through the internet where she came in contact with a person from Sri Lanka and several others from other countries on a variety of social media platforms like Facebook and Twitter.Through a series of messages, the IS managed to convince the girl to join their organisation in Syria next year. It also reportedly promised to provide her with medical education. According to police sources, there was a perceptible change in the teenager’s lifestyle in the last few months. The girl had gradually switched from wearing jeans to the conservative Muslim burqa and hijab. Confirming the development late Thursday night, ATS sources said that the teenager, who belonged to a good family and was a ‘highly-intelligent’ student in a city-based convent school, was planning to exit the country to join the IS. Sri Lanka has been linked to investigations over an Indian girl who was to join the  Islamic State of Iraq and al-Sham (ISIS).The Anti-Terror Squad (ATS) interrogated a 16-year-old girl from Pune, who was planning to join ISIS after being ‘radicalised’ and brainwashed by the terror outfit’s agents residing abroad, The Hindu newspaper reported. “The girl was interrogated by the ATS last week after her movements were closely monitored. It confirmed her initiation by the IS. Her grilling revealed that she was ready to go to any extent to carry out the ISIS directives,” Pune ATS officer Bhanupratap Barge said. The girl is now undergoing a de-radicalisation programme with the help of her family members and community religious leaders. read more

Womens Gymnastics Ohio State back on the road for quadmeet against Rutgers

OSU gymnastics team celebrates senior Kaitlyn Hofland, who earned a career high of 9.925 on uneven parallel bars during 2018 season premiere after recovery from shoulder surgery. She competed against Minnesota and Illinois State Saturday, Jan. 27, 2018 at St. John Arena. Credit: Megan Russell | Senior Lantern ReporterAfter claiming its first victory of the season in a record-setting night during last weekend’s tri-meet, the Ohio State women’s gymnastics team (2-3, 1-2 Big Ten) looks to keep the momentum going Saturday in a quad-meet against Rutgers, West Chester and Wisconsin-Whitewater at Livingston Recreation Center in Piscataway, New Jersey.“That was our first win of the season, but it was a great opportunity for us to look at it and say, ‘This was great, but where can we go from here?’” senior Alexis Mattern said.The Buckeyes had a relaxed week of practice in the gym to ground themselves from their last win. The team focused on improving details of performances through repetition of routines.Mattern said after scoring a season-high 196.775 points in a tri-meet against Minnesota and Illinois State, the team is hoping to enter this upcoming competition with the same mindset, ready to prove it can score 196 anytime it competes.The Buckeyes will see a different rotation of events than they have in their three previous away meets since the upcoming competition is a quad-meet. As they have before, the Buckeyes will start the night on uneven parallel bars, but will then move to balance beam as their second event. They will compete in floor exercise as their third rotation and finish the completions on vault.“Certainly, not having to do beam last on the road is different, so that’s good,” head coach Meredith Paulicivic said. “But honestly, what I tell the team is, ‘You have to compete all four [events]. It doesn’t matter when you get to them, you got to get to them.’ So we just try to stay in the moment where we are, one thing at a time.”As the Buckeyes progress through the season, their away-meet scores will play a more important role in the national rankings. Ohio State still holds a score of 193.200 from their first meet on the road against UCLA.But in Week 7, the team has a chance to drop its lowest road completion score when the NCAA season switches to the regional qualifying score standards. The road completion score determines which 36 teams advance to the regional championships, the first elimination round in the NCAA gymnastics postseason.“This weekend is critical, because we need to have a good score, so that we can drop that 193,” Paulicivic said. “And not just that it’s on the road, and not just that it’s dropping, but about doing what we’re capable of.”  Ohio State will face Rutgers, Westchester and Wisconsin-Whitewater at 7 p.m. Saturday. read more

Oshane Thomas shows West Indies a glimpse of the future

Oshane Thomas in his followthrough AFPOshane Thomas has a habit. The habit of turning heads with his fierce pace. It has already hooked Chris Gayle, who picked him for Jamaica Tallawahs when he was 19, and Tom Moody, who has signed him up for his BPL team Rangpur Riders. On Sunday, it made a big impression on India’s stand-in T20I captain Rohit Sharma, who was stunned by a 147kph inswinger.On a sticky Kolkata evening, India seemed assured of victory, set a target of just 110. But on an Eden Gardens pitch where dew made the ball skid on much more than usual, Thomas cleaned up India’s openers. He forced Rohit to inside-edge to the keeper before flattening the middle stump of Shikhar Dhawan, his bunny on this tour, as he left a gap between bat and pad while looking to drive one that swung back into him.Dinesh Karthik and Krunal Pandya repaired the early damage, but Thomas had done enough to earn Rohit’s praise. “Oshane is a really exciting talent without doubt,” Rohit said at the post-match presentation. “He’s got good height, plus that jump he takes, if he bowls in the right areas, it won’t be easy for any batsman in the world to counter that. He’s really talented, and he also has the advantage of height which gives him the extra edge. I wish him the best in the future.”At 21, Thomas is the youngest fast bowler in the West Indies squad. He has had a very short career so far. But within that time, he has shown plenty of promise. He got into the West Indies team after finishing CPL 2018 as the tournament’s highest wicket-taker among fast bowlers, and second-highest overall behind the legspinner Fawad Ahmed.More than just the number of wickets he’s taken, it’s the quality of batsmen he has rattled. In last year’s CPL, he bowled Gayle – who had moved to St Kitts and Nevis Patriots – with a 150kph yorker. And on this tour he has continually troubled India’s top three. How many other bowlers in world cricket can stake that claim?Thomas has dismissed Dhawan, bowled each time, three times on this tour. Twice in the ODI series he inside-edged him while playing with an angled bat, misjudging the pace off the surface.Virat Kohli rarely plays an false shot. And yet, in the fifth ODI in Thiruvananthapuram, Kohli sparred uncertainly at a nasty lifter from Thomas and edged to first slip, where Jason Holder failed to hold on to the chance. A few overs later, Rohit edged one that left him off the pitch, into Shai Hope’s gloves, only for the umpire’s signal of no-ball to halt Thomas’ celebrations.Kohli and Rohit would eventually settle down and eventually steer India to a breezy nine-wicket win. Had Holder held on, and had Thomas not overstepped, things might have been rather different.On his ODI debut in Guwahati, Thomas clocked 147kph, 147kph, 140kph, 149kph, 147kph and 147kph in his first over. That speed comes from his run-up, which accelerates gradually as he approaches the crease, and a big jump just before his delivery stride. That jump, coupled with his height, gives him bounce to go with his pace, and this combination can unsettle any batsman, particularly early on while still coming to grips with the pace of the surface.Thomas knows pace isn’t enough. In a recent conversation with The Indian Express, he spoke of the importance of guile to go with it.“Bowling the short ball is the easiest to do for a fast bowler,” Thomas said. “But I don’t use my bumper to scare batsmen, I only use it to get batsmen out.”It’s a distinction fast bowlers often forget when adrenaline takes over in an international game, but Thomas has shown he’s a thinking cricketer. When he yorked Shai Hope with what was arguably the ball of CPL 2018 to send his stumps cartwheeling, Moody gushed in the commentary box at what he was seeing in front of him. It was no surprise that Moody snapped Thomas up for his BPL franchise a few weeks later.Carlos Brathwaite, West Indies’ T20I captain, says Thomas has the potential to emulate the West Indies greats of the past.“We’ve had a few chats with him, and he’s in the best place he could be,” Brathwaite told “He understands the opportunities he has, he has to continue to get fitter and stronger. The world is at his feet, it’s for West Indies to help him become another Joel Garner or Michael Holding.”Those are huge names to live up to. At Eden Gardens, where Thomas was scaring India’s top order with his new-ball spell, some viewers were reminded of another legend, Malcolm Marshall, whose 19th death anniversary happened to fall on Sunday.Thomas has only just begun his career, and it’s clearly too early to burden him with such comparisons, but if he keeps learning and adding to his repertoire, West Indies will have quite a bowler in their midst.

Dean Fitzpatrick funeral He was a young man with so much life

first_imgTHE FUNERAL OF 23-year-old stab victim Dean Fitzpatrick is taking place today with friends and family gathered at the Holy Trinity church in Donaghmede this morning.In his homily, the priest, Fr Eoin McCrystal, spoke of the “devastation” felt at the young man’s tragic death by those who knew him.“He was a young man with so much of life ahead of him,” he said. “Speaking with his loved ones they have told me of the fact that Dean was a proud father of Leon and doted on him. Dean was a young man with plenty of life in him so it is only natural that there are so many broken hearts in this church this morning.”During the homily, the parish priest mentioned Fitzpatrick’s younger sister Amy, who was just 15 when she went missing five years ago in Spain.“That must be the worst nightmare for any family, and Amy is very much in our prayers this day as well,” he said.Dean Fitzpatrick was found with stab wounds at a house on Malahide Road in Dublin on 26 May and later died of his injuries in hospital. A man had been arrested over the killing but was later released by gardaí without charge.Read: Man released without charge over Dean Fitzpatrick killing>last_img read more

Netflix for Chromebooks recognized on Netflix website

first_imgOne of the really big things that came to light, and something we here at had actually scooped days before, was Netflix support finally coming to Chromebooks.This is a big deal for several reasons as it means either Google‘s figured out how to Sandbox Silverlight, or an alternative method of distributing videos has been included server side. More importantly, it means Google and Netflix are friends, which is good for Android tablets, phones, and (better support for) Google TV as well.Shortly after the announce on stage, I took my trusty Cr-48 over to Netflix, and was greeted with this splashpage when I tried to catch the next episode of Scrubs.I see this move by Netflix as a huge deal, both in co-operation with Google Movies and as the first major streaming service to come to Android. The momentum caused by this move come launch day will force the hands of companies like Hulu, Amazon Unbox (or whatever they are calling it right now), and many more to make the jump over to the little green guy.It’s a video filled future ahead of us, so be sure to keep an eye on every megabyte you spend!last_img read more

Low Pay Commission recommends actions to reduce minimum wage noncompliance

first_imgThe Low Pay Commission (LPC) has recommended that the government publishes details of organisations which do not comply with national minimum wage legislation at regular timed intervals, for example quarterly or every six months, in order to regularly raise awareness of non-compliance.The recommendation forms part of its Non-compliance and enforcement of the national minimum wage: September 2017 report, which considers the nature and extent of national minimum wage non-compliance, reflects on current national minimum wage policies, and makes policy recommendations.In its recommendations, the LPC states that naming non-compliant organisations more regularly would create more media anticipation and momentum. It would also enable stakeholders to prepare and gain support before the next naming round if required.The report also advises improved guidance around the technical errors that employers have made to allow other organisations to learn from previous mistakes. It also suggests that the government looks to increase the number of prosecutions to act as a deterrent to non-compliant employers, as well as work to increase publicity around successful prosecutions and enforcement activity.The LPC further recommends that the government accelerates its communication efforts to utilise all available channels, and include publicity around the third-party complaints process, case studies and guidance on successful complainants, and publicise the improvements made in the time taken to resolve a case.Its report also advises that the government implements systems and processes that enable it to gather and share information regarding national minimum wage non-compliance, to monitor the success of the policy, specific groups and issues, and help it to take action.Bryan Sanderson, chair of the LPC, said: “The Low Pay Commission has always had a strong interest in compliance with the minimum wage rates it recommends. There is, after all, little point in having a minimum wage if [employees] do not receive the correct rate.“With more [employees] than ever paid the minimum wage or close to it, more people are at risk of being underpaid. Our analysis finds that up to one in five people who should be paid at least the minimum wage may, in fact, receive less. This equates to between 305,000 and 580,000 [employees] at its highest point, although it is a difficult thing to measure.“The LPC welcomes the recent increases in funding for HMRC’s [HM Revenue and Customs] enforcement of the minimum wage, and recognises the progress it has made. However, we also think there is more the government could do to identify non-compliance and stop it happening in the first place. In our report, we lay out recommendations for ways the government could go further.”Jacob Demeza-Wilkinson, employment law consultant at ELAS Group, added: “There are two key things this report brings to light, the issue of paying the minimum wage correctly, and the issue of equal pay.“It is vitally important that employers pay their employees at least the minimum wage for the work that they do. These rates change annually so it is important to keep an eye on this and know what the current rate is. If an employer doesn’t comply with these requirements, the consequences can be very severe. Firstly, there is the obvious consequence that underpaid employees can bring claims to remedy this, and they would be entitled to the deficit. If a number of employees are being underpaid this could open the floodgates.“Secondly, the sanctions that can be imposed by HMRC are now as severe as ever. The penalties and fines that can be imposed have been doubled to 200% of the arrears in pay, up to a maximum of £20,000 per employee. This would mean that [employers] could [be] paying twice if the employees also make claims. Further, and perhaps more importantly, if [an organisation] is found to be deliberately underpaying staff then [organisation] directors can now be disqualified for 15 years. HMRC now has more funds to pursue criminal prosecutions if necessary.“The second point raised here is that of equal pay. This report highlights that there may still be businesses where this is not happening. This is a particularly serious matter because it is set out in the Equality Act, meaning a breach is considered as discrimination. It should be noted that there is no upper limit on the compensation which can be awarded for a discrimination claim and, while most cases will attract a much smaller amount than the multi-million pound record award, the fine will not be negligible. It is far easier to comply with the laws to begin with.“It is deplorable that there are still employers in this day and age that either will not or do not comply with the laws, particularly when these laws are in place to try and ensure equality among employees. Given the possible consequences set out above, it seems sensible to comply with the law rather than risking the future of [a] business for the sake of a couple of pounds an hour.”last_img read more

A Game of Online Advertising CatchUp

first_imgQuick quiz:Where are most of the online ad dollars going? A) Pure-play giants like Google, Yahoo, AOL, MSN, and their ilk. B) Traditional media companies like Time Warner, Hearst and Meredith.Answer: It’s split pretty close to 60-40 for the pure-plays right now but the growth rate for traditional media companies’ Web and mobile ad dollars is much more rapid than the pure-plays, meaning 50-50 is coming fast. [If you factor in end-user sales such as paid content and subscriptions online, the split is already close to 50-50.]Either way, this leads to a debate: Are traditional media companies reasserting their rightful position as the advertising channels of choice—in print, in broadcast and online? Or are they playing a game of catch-up that painfully underscores the fact that pure-play online companies have stolen half of the aggregated ad spend in the country over the last 10 years? Breaking It DownLet’s look at the numbers. In 2001, Internet ad spending on traditional-media Web sites was $2.3 billion, according the Veronis Suhler Stevenson Communications Industry Forecast. That year, ad spending on pure-play Internet companies totaled $6.1 billion. The pure-plays had a 72 percent share of market. In 2007, six years later, traditional media companies (including newspapers, magazines, television, radio and more) produced $11.4 billion in Internet advertising spending, while pure-play Internet companies produced $19.1 billion, for a market share of 62.8 percent.But the traditional media companies are growing much faster in Internet spending, with a 2001-2006 compound annual growth rate of 30 percent, compared to 20 percent for pure-play media companies during the same period. All in all not a bad performance. So why is it that the perception prevails that the pure-play giants are basically dominant? Part of it could be that Google invented search advertising and contextual programs like AdSense. Part of it could be that traditional media spent 10 years noisily defending print. “All of the large media companies are dealing with macro secular trends,” says John Suhler, founding partner of Veronis Suhler Stevenson. “Everything you read regarding the impact of the Internet is from the big, public companies, so it is a surprise to most when we report that the traditional media spend is within a couple of points of the pure-play companies,” as measured in total spending, including subscriptions and access.The Re-Emergence of BrandingAnother factor in the negative perception about traditional media companies, says Jeff Reinhardt, managing director at Berkery, Noyes, is that the online percentage of revenue for traditional media companies is still small, even while growing. “You take a large brand and 70 or 80 percent of their revenue is still non-digital,” Reinhardt says. “The pure-plays who have gone from zero to 60 so quickly get all the attention.” But the traditional media companies are suddenly competitive. A key, Suhler says, is the evolution of online branding. “In the bubble period, all of the proponents said that branding didn’t mean anything and all you needed to do is buy connectivity,” Suhler says. “But at the end of the day, branding is extremely important to sustain online activity. The non-branded sites have a lot more trouble obtaining eyeballs.”Of course, there’s also another way to look at this. “Before Google and Yahoo came along, traditional media companies had 100 percent of the spend,” says Scott Peters, a managing director at the Jordan, Edmiston Group. “Now they have half. I’m not sure this is a windfall for traditional media,. They were late to the game and the pure-plays were able to take half of the market share online. And traditional media companies over the last 10 years have been trying to claw back.”last_img read more

He also plans heavy spending on infrastructure and socially-oriented invesment.His approval rating is as high as 86 percent, according to a survey by pollsters Perfiles de Opinion.“Together, we are going to undertake a second round of consolidating our project, and now the pace will quicken because of our historic majority in congress,” Correa said in a recent ad promoting the inauguration.He has ruled out seeking a third term, however.Ecuador, a country of some 16 million people that belongs to OPEC but is its smallest member, is heavily dependent on oil revenue, and Correa has said finding more crude is essential to its future.The country has proven reserves of 7.2 billion barrels but is short on refining capacity. So Correa wants to build a new refinery, and has also opened a tender process for 16 tracts of the Amazon with an eye to finding crude.At the same time, to ease dependence on fossil fuels, he has announced plans to construct eight dams to produce electricity, with an investment of five billion dollars.Foreign trade is also key. Ecuador posted a trade deficit of $194 million in 2012. Before Correa took office, the foreign ministry handled the issue, but Correa took away that brief and created a ministry just to boost trade.Other heads of state due attending Correa’s swearing-in include Chávez successor Nicolas Maduro and leaders from Colombia, Bolivia, and Chile, among others.As he takes the oath of office, for the first time a woman will preside over the ceremony: the legislature’s speaker Gabriela Rivadeneira.Correa said this week that he will not run for another term in 2017, even if his party does not have a strong candidate to replace him.He said he will move to Belgium, where his wife, Anne Malherbe, is from, so as not to overshadow whoever that candidate turns out to be.

first_img Comments   Share   Keys for the Cardinals defense:1. Get to Clemens Rams quarterback Kellen Clemens has been prone to turnovers in his five starts this season, and the Cardinals can force the issue by getting consistent pressure on the eighth-year pro out of Oregon. 2. Force turnoversThe Cardinals’ defense is typically very good, but it’s at its best when it forces turnovers. Whether it’s by getting to an unsuspecting quarterback, making plays on the ball or stripping a ball carrier, Arizona’s defense has shown that it can be one of the biggest game-changing units in the league. 3. Shut down the runIt shouldn’t be a surprise to anybody that the Cardinals are going to make Clemens beat them, rather than let him manage the game while handing off to Stacy. But to require Clemens to do something extraordinary to win the game, the Cardinals have to take away the run. Keys for the Rams defense:1. Pick your poisonThe Cardinals have become much more diversified in their offensive attack than they were in their first matchup with St. Louis, and it’s to the point that the Rams’ defense isn’t going to be able to take away all of the Cards’ go-to players. The Arizona Cardinals suffered their first loss in more than a month last week in Philadelphia, but they have a chance to right the ship Sunday in a rematch with the St. Louis Rams at University of Phoenix Stadium. Arizona blew an 11-point fourth-quarter lead in their season opener in St. Louis — a loss that seems to hurt the Cardinals more each passing week. The Cardinals are still alive in the NFC wild card race, although one analyst said they may have to reach 11 wins to secure a wild card berth. But Arizona’s playoff fate is largely out of its control. The Cardinals hold the tiebreaker with Carolina, but the Panthers have a two-game lead on Arizona. The next two teams in the wild card race — the Eagles and San Francisco 49ers — each hold the tiebreaker over the Cardinals. Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retires But breaking down playoff scenarios will be a practice in futility if Arizona loses Sunday, and here’s a look at what the Cardinals need to do to win their first NFC West game in almost two years and keep their playoff hopes alive:Keys for the Cardinals offense:1. Protect the ballWhen the Cardinals haven’t turned the ball over, they’ve been nearly unstoppable (see their 40-11 win over the Colts two weeks ago). But when Arizona — and namely quarterback Carson Palmer — have turned it over, they’ve stalled offensively (see last week’s 24-21 loss to the Eagles). 2. Keep Floyd goingCardinals receiver Michael Floyd has emerged as the solidified No. 2 option behind Larry Fitzgerald, and he’s caught 54 passes for a team-high 860 yards. Floyd has racked up at least 99 yards in each of Arizona’s last three games, and it’s important that he remains a large part of the Cardinals’ offense to draw attention from Fitzgerald and the rest of Arizona’s options offensively. 3. Slow down STL’s pass rushThe Rams had a field day against the Cardinals in the season opener, getting to Palmer for five sacks and forcing the quarterback to throw an interception and lose a fumble. Derrick Hall satisfied with D-backs’ buying and selling Top Stories St. Louis pass rusher Robert Quinn abused departed left tackle Levi Brown to the tune of three sacks, two forced fumbles and four quarterback hits. It’ll be up to Bradley Sowell and a host of tight ends and backs to at least slow Quinn down. Keys for the Rams offense:1. Protect Kellen ClemensArizona’s pass rush has been relentless of late, and much of that is thanks to the re-emergence of John Abraham as a pass-rushing outside linebacker. The Cardinals’ defense — already one of the best in the NFL — is even more effective when it’s able to get to the passer, and the Rams need to protect Clemens if they’re going to move the ball in a noisy environment Sunday. 2. Take care of the ballClemens has been turnover prone in his five starts this season, throwing three interceptions and fumbling five times. The Rams can’t afford to turn the ball over and give a suddenly potent Cardinals offense a short field. 3. Keep Zac Stacy goingThe Rams lost a bona fide star running back when Steven Jackson signed with the Atlanta Falcons during the offseason, but rookie Zac Stacy has given the Rams’ struggling run game a boost. Stacy has rushed for 692 yards over the last eight games, which is fifth among all NFL running backs during that time. The 5-foot-8, 215-pounder is averaging more than four yards per carry, and he’ll continue to be heavily relied on with quarterback Sam Bradford out with a torn ACL. The 5: Takeaways from the Coyotes’ introduction of Alex Meruelo Between the trio of Larry Fitzgerald, Rob Housler and Floyd, Arizona has a number of tall, rangy athletes on the outside. And with Andre Ellington’s return from injury, the Cardinals also have a big-time playmaker out of the backfield. The Rams have to pick which aspect they want to shut down or risk giving up big plays anywhere on the field. 2. Slow down the runThe Cardinals will never be a run-first team under head coach Bruce Arians, but they’ve at least presented a threat of running in their past two games. When Arizona can run the ball, it just magnifies the effectiveness of its passing attack. But if St. Louis is able to slow down the run, it’s less likely to get burned by big plays through the air. 3. Keep the pressure onSt. Louis abused the Cardinals offensive line in the teams’ first meeting this season, and doing the same will be key to any defensive success the Rams have. Arizona has implemented a number of protection packages to give Palmer more time, but this will be one of their biggest tests of the season after trading Brown earlier in the year.
