Thomas Cook pilots strike over pay dispute

first_imgThomas Cook pilots who are members of the British Airline Pilots’ Association (BALPA) are taking part in a 12-hour strike in a dispute over pay.The 12-hour strike, which commenced at 3am on Friday 8 September and will end at 3pm, relates to 2017 pay negotiations for the pilots.The union is calling for a pay increase in line with inflation and a further pay offer to be put forward by the organisation.On a turnout of 88%, 91% of pilots balloted voted in favour of taking strike action over the pay dispute.A spokesperson at Thomas Cook Airlines said: “We have set out a fair pay increase of 1.75% in year one and 2.25% increase in year two, on top of automatic pay increases, in what is a very competitive environment. BALPA [has] not moved from [its] demands for a pay rise which adds up to more than 10%, or around £10,000 per pilot. We hope BALPA [comes] back to the table willing to negotiate. We are grateful to our customers for their understanding and to our pilots who are flying today, as well as staff who are working hard to keep the impact of this strike to a minimum. All of our flights so far today have operated without disruption.”Brian Strutton, general secretary at BALPA, said: “Thomas Cook pilots have faced pay cuts and slashed terms and conditions and say, ‘enough is enough’. Going on strike is not something pilots take lightly. BALPA members haven’t been on strike since 1974, but with no sensible pay offer on the table, Thomas Cook pilots have had no other option.“The time has come for Thomas Cook to understand the depth of feeling on this issue, listen to its pilots and come forward with a reasonable offer that they can accept.”last_img read more

Florida among the pestiest states in the country study says

first_img(WSVN) – If you call Florida home, odds are you’re talking (or complaining) about bugs. According to a new study by Terminix, the Sunshine State ranks as the eleventh most ‘pest-iest’ state in America.Terminix analyzed social media chatter about common pests in all 50 states. Americans searched for information about bed bugs more than 7.3 million times throughout 2017, followed by runners-up scorpions, spiders and silverfish.The company says the Entomologists’ Almanac determined the states’ rankings by analyzing millions of posts about bugs, noting that even states in colder climates made their voices heard about creepy-crawly critters.The top 17 pest-iest states are:Copyright 2019 Sunbeam Television Corp.

Dunleavy Maintains Lead In Race For Governor

first_imgDemocratic challenger Mark Begich currently has 43.57% percent of the vote. Dunleavy has already declared victory. In a statement, he said he takes seriously the task ahead of him. Elections officials hope to certify the results by November 23, according to the DOE. Governor Bill Walker suspended his reelection campaign days after Lt. Gov. Byron Mallott resigned over what Walker described as an “inappropriate overture to a woman.” Dunleavy: “Over these past four years, too many Alaskans have been shut out of the big decisions facing our state – from changes to the Permanent Fund to crime policy to addressing the state’s budget deficit. Elections remind us that in our system of government the people rule, and today the people made their voices heard. Now begins the real work of restoring trust between the people and their government. With the help of the people of Alaska, we will protect and restore the Permanent Fund Dividend, we will end the state’s crime spree, and we will unleash Alaska’s unparalleled economic potential.”center_img The state will continue to count absentee and other uncounted ballots a week after Election Day.

ESPN The Magazine Launches Own Web Site

first_imgAfter 10 years in print, ESPN The Magazine is finally getting its own Web site. Today, the company launched ESPNthemag.com, the first site dedicated exclusively to the magazine.“It was time,” says Robbyn Footlick, executive editor of multimedia. “A big ESPN initiative right now is focusing on developing all its content across all its platforms, so now seemed the right time to build out the magazine’s content online, including video.”The new site has been programmed like a TV network, Footlick explains, with a focus on what she calls “lunchtime programming” and updates throughout the day through blogs (what appears to be ESPN’s most aggressive blogging initiative to date) and a news infographic called “The World According to Us.” The site also features magazine content, online-exclusive stories and video. As part of the magazine’s 10th anniversary, the site includes a separate anniversary channel, featuring an interactive gallery of the more than 270 covers since the magazine’s launch.“The magazine has a different feel than the rest of the ESPN site and we really needed to represent that,” says Gabe Garner, director of interactivity for Sarkissian Mason, the firm that developed the site. He says the process took about six months. “We took a ground-up approach to the design and architecture of the site. We first needed to find ways regular readers of the magazine could get the print content they’re used to online. Then, we began to add rich media flourishes like ‘The World According to Us.’ That became a real centerpiece for bringing the magazine’s unique voice to the Web.”The site was soft-launched on Friday.last_img read more

Rival Newspapers Begin to Share Content—Will Magazines Follow

first_imgFor FOLIO:’s 2009 predictions feature (“117 Magazine and Media Predictions for 2009”), Raymond Roker, co-founder and publisher of Urb magazine, predicted that “former foes will share information on clients and prospects.”In the newspaper industry, on the editorial side, this is already happening.There was a story posted on Sunday by the Associated Press (itself a literal product of the idea of newspaper rivals sharing news resources) about how Texas’ Dallas Morning News and Fort Worth Star-Telegram—former fierce rivals—have been sharing concert reviews.Their announcement was followed by another one in December, when the Washington Post and Baltimore Sun said they would share resources to cover Maryland. That once-bitter rivals would agree to forge an unholy alliance is a product of the economic downturn, the rise of the Internet, shrinking staffs and slashed travel budgets.Gary Wortel, publisher of the Fort Worth paper, told the AP: “I don’t look at us as competitors anymore.”It’s also a way for newspaper publisher to avoid additional, demoralizing job cuts (although having to make nice with your arch rival can’t be great for morale, either).If newspapers have been pushed to do this, could magazines not be far behind?We’ve seen plenty of magazines restructure to share internal resources (see Time Inc., Source Media, Nielsen et al) but have yet to forge the sort of unholy alliance we’re seeing in newspapers. (In fact, the only one I could come up with in magazine publishing is Fader’s recent pact with the Web site Pitchfork, and that one doesn’t really pool editorial, although it’s not out of the question.) But imagine, for a second, Time and Newsweek—two of the fiercest competitors I can think of in the magazine business, outside of the celebrity category—sharing a reporter covering Sarah Palin in Alaska, for instance (or, more realistically, a local election with national implications). They already link to other on the Web. Why not in print? Alas, I have a feeling both Time and Newsweek would fold before they agreed to share reporting resources. But for other magazines, it might be another concession on the path to survival.last_img read more

For a Regional Magazine Print is Still the Main Source of Income

first_imgWhen you read the literature of journalism these days you might think that you must hurry to carve out your place in the digital world. That may be so for newspapers, but it is not so for magazines, particularly not for regional magazines.Berkshire HomeStyle is a controlled circulation regional magazine distributed in our core region of the Berkshires and Columbia County, as well as in Northern Connecticut and Dutchess county, the Capital District (Albany, Troy, Schenectady) and in Saratoga, an area approximately 50 miles from its central location in Austerlitz, New York. The magazine started in 1989, grew steadily until 2008, had a significant decline in 2009, and seems to be climbing back to steady growth in 2011. Where Are We Now? 2008 – 2011 Comparison with Competing MagazineBerkshire HomeStyle’s experience during these difficult years is quite likely similar to that of most magazines. In the Berkshires, HomeStyle had one direct competitor, also a monthly lifestyle magazine with nine issues a year. The graph below compares ads sold by both from 2008 to June 2011. The upper line is Berkshire HomeStyle and the lower line the competitor. The upswing each year illustrates the seasonal nature of the region—a major influx of second homers and tourists in the summer season. The bottom line x’s are the months when the competing magazine was not published (it folded at the end of 2010).During the three full years we can see that the drop in advertising sales was quite similar for both magazines. For the month of July, for example, the peak month in this region, HomeStyle had 188 ads in 2008, 161 in 2009, and 146 in 2010. The competitor had 157 ads in 2008, 108 in 2009, and 111 in 2010.Can Online or Digital Publishing Make Up for the Declines?In this case, the simple answer is no. Towards the end of 2009 the competing magazine took out full page ads saying “Now, more than just a magazine.” They were alluding to their various online publications. Since the magazine folded a year later, we might conclude that online did not rescue them. Our own experience with online is not very encouraging either. Visits to our online edition were 454 in January, 325 in February, 709 in March, 483 in April and 262 in May. Berkshire HomeStyle has opted to stick with the printed magazine. The brave new world of the Internet is still in the throes of development. Whether it’s PageTurn Pro developing its software to be more user-friendly or one of hundreds of their competitors coming up with a better system, there will be a better system. Whether Kindle or iPad will offer the best way to see Berkshire HomeStyle online, one of them or any one of hundreds of others will vie for Berkshire HomeStyle’s content.Potential for GrowthBerkshire HomeStyle today is the same monthly regional magazine it was in 2007. Total sales then had peaked, after 17 years of steady growth, at $553,491. The economic tsunami in 2008 took us down to a low of $367,534 in 2010. Today, having weathered the storm, we plan to continue our growth. The world today is quite different from 2007. The economy is sluggish. Housing, a major measure of confidence, will be bad for years to come. Unemployment will remain high for a while. Yet, well-managed companies, whether large corporations or small magazines, will prosper.  Berkshire HomeStyle’s growth will probably continue at the pre-2008 annual rate of around 10 percent, keeping the advertisers we have and gaining new ones in the course of our region’s normal business. In addition there are some major new growth areas. One growth area is regional expansion. Three months ago we hired a new sales rep to service northern Connecticut. The results are promising, and could bring as much as 5 percent in additional sales. Just last month we started a new division headed by our new Fashion and Style Editor. That may add as much as 20 percent to annual sales within two or three years. Our ad sales, as they have developed over the past 20 years, are heavily concentrated in home-related goods and services and in the arts. The first accounts for 27 percent of all ad sales, the second, for 24 percent. Our new Fashion division may well develop to be a major division much like Home and the Arts.Strange as it may seem, the brave new world of the Internet may well be one of our major sources for growth.  One of the terms that have been coined to describe the struggle for a place in the sun among the plethora of providers is “competition for eyeballs.” The magazine holds up very well in that competitive arena. There is the pleasure of holding a well-designed magazine and of reading intelligent and carefully edited text. And then there is the kind of world we want to live in. For the foreseeable future, the good magazine is likely to prevail.Henry Meininger is editor and publisher of Berkshire HomeStyle.center_img Two events affected publishing in recent years, the economic meltdown in 2008 and the appearance of the social network. They are not directly related, but the confluence of these two events does throw some confusion into thinking and planning.  If the economic meltdown was the result of many years of “irrational exuberance” then the correction is a natural one. Whether housing or retailing or advertising revenue, a correction of 25 percent to 30 percent is reasonable. And as to the future, we need to understand that growth will not be at the heady rate prior to 2008. Berkshire HomeStyle will probably continue to grow at 10 percent in 2011. That is a good growth rate for just about any business.The Social NetworkAll the buzz these days is about Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and many others, all under the umbrella of the social network. This is certainly a humongous change in communication technology. It is so vast and so varied that the chances of a small, regional magazine to be on top of those developments and to harness them are very slim. Besides, if our print advertising can grow at 10 percent, say from $35,000 a month to $38,500, that’s a lot better than a 20 percent growth in Internet advertising, from, say $3,000 to $3,600.Berkshire HomeStyle has had a website since 2001. In 2010 we went online through Page Turn Pro. We do not sell ads on our online edition. Creating the administrative machinery to sell and service them is, at this time, just not profitable. We do use the Internet for marketing, but we avoid spending more than we can hope to recover from plunging into the brave new world of online.last_img read more

Twitter Rolling Out Analytics Tool

first_imgIn the last five years, Twitter has grown to 100 million monthly users, says the company, with about half of them logging in at least once a day. The analytics tool was debuted at the TechCrunch Disrupt event where Twitter’s director of Web business development April Underwood said the platform is driving 100 million clicks per day to sites across the Web, reports TechCrunch’s Leena Rao.Underwood told attendees that the analytics tool will be free. The company also plans to make the Twitter Web Analytics API available to developers to incorporate it into their products.TechCrunch has video from Underwood’s announcement at the Disrupt show. On Tuesday Twitter announced that it’s launching a new analytics tool that will initially be available to a select group of partners as a pilot program, but will be made available to everyone in the “next few weeks.”The tool will enable Web site developers to more accurately measure Twitter traffic referrals and how well the Twitter features they’ve integrated into their sites are performing.The tool is essentially the result of Twitter’s acquisition of BackType in July. According to the company’s announcement yesterday, the tool will have three core functions: the ability to understand how content is being shared across Twitter; the ability to measure the traffic Twitter is sending to a site; and measuring the effectiveness of the Tweet button integration.last_img read more

Where Six Execs Will Be Spending in 2017

first_img Click through the slide show to learn where six executives will be focusing their investments in 2017. Prev1 of 7NextUse your ← → (arrow) keys to browse The disruptive shifts in the media business model over the last decade offer great promise for future growth, but it’s no surprise that they also generated upheaval and uncertainty, and that they require rapid adaptation. In this environment, new technologies, new media formats, and new distribution channels emerge, and sometimes disappear within a few years. All this makes it challenging to know where to invest. Unifed databases have become much more important, as publishers seek to improve knowledge about their audiences, and then use that knowledge both for their own products, and to sell insights to their advertisers. Selling insights and marketing services to advertisers requires new skills and new staffing patterns. New opportunities to monetize content have emerged in mobile platforms, in video, in archives, and more. With budgets tight and the need for technological expertise increasing, we asked executives across the industry where they’re spending in 2017.

Army Embraces Credentialing to Provide Soldiers a Boost during Transition

first_imgParticipation in the Army credentialing program has continued to grow over the past several years, helping soldiers leverage their training and experience for licenses and certifications that will ease their transition into civilian careers.In an effort to boost the employment options for separating personnel, the Army’s Training and Doctrine Command (TRADOC) has begun linking credentialing opportunities to every military occupational specialty in the service, reported Army Times. In 2014, about 20,000 soldiers earned credentials in 65 specialties.The Army credentialing program allows personnel to earn government licenses, such as a commercial driver’s license issued by a state government or an FAA license; or a certification from a professional or trade association, such as the American Culinary Federation. The TRADOC initiative provides soldiers a large selection of credentials covering many professional occupations.Under a Department of Transportation initiative already under way, more than 10,000 soldiers and veterans have earned commercial driver’s licenses since it was launched in 2011, the Army announced in November.Soldiers competing for promotion to sergeant or staff sergeant also can earn points for gaining technical certifications, according to the story.
