Budgeting in a Down Economy

first_imgFrom reforecastings and bankruptcy filings to foldings and restructurings, there’s no argument that the magazine industry has been feeling, and will continue to feel, the effects of the ailing economy. As we move deeper into the second quarter, publishers are beginning to consider their budgets for 2009, and how best to account for the economy and the shift toward digital.Topeka, Kansas-based Ogden Publications began its 2009 budgeting process in April. “We have traditionally referred to our process as forecasting rather than budgeting, to promote the notion that we can make strategic changes in direction at any time regardless of the budget period,” publisher and editorial director Bryan Welch tells FOLIO:.At Ogden—which publishes several self-sufficiency and rural lifestyle titles including Mother Earth News, Utne Reader and Natural Home—a team of 14 executive and mid- level managers are involved in the forecasting process, and they plan to make several adjustments for rising costs in print. “We’ve been relatively successful in marketing print subscriptions online, and in order to cope with the combination of increasing costs and weak advertising revenues, we have trimmed back direct-mail subscription promotions,” says Welch. “We think we can maintain a modest rate of growth in circulation by training our attention on digital sources.”Tom Larranaga, publisher of Lebhar-Friedman’s Nation’s Restaurant News magazine, says that he and his team will be “realistic and conservative” in their projections, investing mostly in people and events. “Today, the market is contracting and the amount and quality of competition is greater,” he says. “If our goal is to be number one in the business we compete then further investment is required.” The Digital ShiftLike a number of other publishers, Rockaway, New Jersey-based Business Media this spring announced that it was cutting several print jobs in an effort to consolidate and build out its e-media team by 20 positions. Last year, the company employed 23 digital staffers and, today, it has 40 and expects to fill13 more positions before the end of June.“We are budgeting print to be slightly down year over year,” explains CEO Rich Reiff. “We have a new magazine—Tool & Technology, which launched in February—that will do about $1 million in print its first full year. Considering that revenue, our print revenue is budgeted to be flat. Our digital plan calls for growth of 44 percent year over year.”Josh Dunn, president of Tacoma, Washington-based regional publisher Premiere Media Group, says his digital budget has increased slowly over the last few years (10 percent in 2007, 15 percent in 2008 and 17 percent in 2009) but that print is still his “bread and butter.” American Express Publishing’s Food + Wine magazine has seen increases in its digital budgets, says publisher Christina Grdovic, but the magazine is creating integrated deals that include print and digital. At Ogden, digital is a “relatively young facet” of its business, accounting for about 15 percent of revenues this year and perhaps 20 percent in 2009, Welch says.Staying FlexibleAfter spending months hammering out the details of the coming year’s budget, there’s nothing like a first quarter loss to impact a company’s performance over the rest of the year. Leaving some wiggle room financially, and taking stock periodically, are the best ways to make sure your 2009 remains on track.Larranaga’s team at the Nation’s Restaurant News has a monthly budget reworking process he calls LTYE (latest total year estimates). “Contingency plans are developed and rolled out to keep us on plan,” he says. “My business manager is my right-hand man who keeps me smart, honest and on the best possible track.”Overall, the sooner you begin the budgeting process, the better, Reiff says. “Start early, require a plan of business to include a content and revenue strategy, involve many and, most importantly, ask for a commitment from everyone to do their respective job well with a goal to be better than the competition.”last_img read more

QLED or OLED We compare the two best TV technologies

first_img Best laptops for college students: We’ve got an affordable laptop for every student. Best live TV streaming services: Ditch your cable company but keep the live channels and DVR. Tags 86 18 Photos 2:18 Share your voice LG C9 OLED TV has the best picture quality ever What is quantum dot? Quantum dots are microscopic molecules that, when hit by light, emit their own, differently colored light. In QLED TVs, the dots are contained in a film, and the light that hits them is provided by an LED backlight. That light then travels though a few other layers inside the TV, including a liquid crystal (LCD) layer, to create the picture. The light from the LED source is transmitted through the layers to the screen’s surface, which is why we say it’s “transmissive.” lg-display-booth-ces-2017-1495-001.jpgA look at the “sandwich” of layers in an LCD TV, where an LED backlight shines through a quantum dot layer (among others) and on to the LCD panel itself. Josh Miller/CNET Samsung has been using quantum dots to augment its LCD TVs since 2015, and debuted the QLED TV branding in 2017. Samsung says those quantum dots have evolved over time — that color and light output have improved, for example. In my experience however, improvements caused by better quantum dots are much less evident than those caused by other image quality factors (see below).Other TV makers also use quantum dots in LCD TVs, including TCL and Vizio, but don’t call them QLED TVs. An OLED TV is not an LCD TV at all LCD is the dominant technology in flat-panel TVs and has been for a long time. It’s cheaper than OLED, especially in larger sizes, and numerous panel makers worldwide, including LG itself, can manufacture it. LG OLEDC8P seriesOLED TVs don’t need LED backlights so, in addition to image quality benefits, they can get amazingly thin. Sarah Tew/CNET OLED is different because it doesn’t use an LED backlight to produce light. Instead, light is produced by millions of individual OLED subpixels. The pixels themselves — tiny dots that compose the image — emit light, which is why it’s called an “emissive” display technology. That difference leads to all kinds of picture quality effects, some of which favor LCD (and QLED), but most of which benefit OLED. Aside from LG, Sony also sells OLED TVs in the US, while Panasonic and Philips sell them in Europe. All use panels manufactured by LG Display, however. A closer look at MicroLED Before that we’ll get MicroLED. It’s another emissive technology, again spearheaded by Samsung, that seems closer to market than direct-view quantum dot. As you might guess from the name, it uses millions of teeny-tiny LEDs as pixels. MicroLED has the potential for the same perfect black levels as OLED, with no danger of burn-in. It can deliver higher brightness than any current display technology, wide-gamut excellent color and doesn’t suffer the viewing angle and uniformity issues of LCD. It doesn’t involve quantum dots, at least not yet, but who knows what might happen when it comes to market. QDMLED, anyone? For now, however, OLED rules the picture quality roost over QLED. At least until somebody combines the two. Originally published Feb. 8, 2017.Update, July 18, 2019: This article has been updated extensively for 2019. Now playing: Watch this: Samsung uses QLED for its best TVs, including this 8K model. Sarah Tew/CNET Two rival TV brands use very similar acronyms to describe their best TVs. But QLED and OLED are as different as leopards and lions. For the last few years Samsung, the most popular TV-maker in the world, has been branding its best TVs “QLED.” Its 2019 QLED lineup is bigger than ever, with seven series encompassing 28 different models. From insane 98-inch 8K behemoths to TVs designed to look like paintings and modern art, QLEDs represent the pinnacle of what Samsung’s formidable engineers can bring to TV buyers.  But it’s not the pinnacle of picture quality. That honor goes to OLED TVs. Based on the last few years of CNET’s side-by-side comparison reviews, LG’s OLED TVs have all delivered better overall image quality than Samsung QLED TVs. The latest example pitted Samsung’s 2018 Q9 QLED against LG’s 2019 C9 OLED and the LG OLED won handily, delivering the best picture quality I’ve ever tested. In fact the LG B8 from 2018 also beat the Samsung. The Q9 is still an excellent performer, however, and delivers the best non-OLED image I’ve ever tested — but not because of QLED technology.In June 2019 I reviewed the midrange Q70, which is an excellent performer but no OLED. I haven’t tested any of the highest-end 2019 QLED models yet, such as the Q80 and Q90, but if I was a betting man I’d still pick the best OLED to beat the best QLED TV once again this year, even though Samsung seems to have made more improvements than LG. Here’s why. A QLED TV is just an LCD TV with quantum dots Let’s start with a quick summary of the two technologies. OLED stands for “organic light emitting diode.”QLED (according to Samsung) stands for “quantum dot LED TV.”OLED is a fundamentally different technology from LCD, the major type of TV today.QLED is a variation of LED LCD, adding a quantum dot film to the LCD “sandwich.”OLED is “emissive,” meaning the pixels emit their own light.QLED, like LCD, is, in its current form, “transmissive” and relies on an LED backlight.The main takeaway is that QLED is closer to regular old LCD than it is to OLED, which I (and most other experts) consider a distinctly different class of television, much like plasma was before it. QLED vs. OLED: image quality compared Based on my reviews, here are some general comparisons I’ve made between the two.QLED TV picture quality varies more than OLED. Samsung has a bunch of QLED series, and the most expensive perform a lot better than the cheaper ones. That’s mainly because the biggest improvements in the picture quality of Samsung’s sets don’t have much to do with quantum dots. In 2019 TVs like the Q70, Q80 and Q90, they’re the result of better full-array local dimming, bright highlights and better viewing angles, which help them significantly outperform QLED TVs that lack those extras, like the Q60 in 2019.Meanwhile every OLED TV I’ve reviewed has very similar image quality — all have earned a 10/10 in picture quality in my tests. There is some variation among different OLED TVs, but they’re not nearly as significant as the differences between various QLED TV series.OLED has better contrast and black level. One of the most important image quality factors is black level, and their emissive nature means OLED TVs can turn unused pixels off completely, for literally infinite contrast. QLED/LCD TVs, even the best ones with the most effective full-array local dimming, let some light through, leading to more washed-out, grayer black levels and blooming around bright sections. QLED is brighter. The brightest QLED and LCD TVs can get brighter than any OLED model, which is a particular advantage in bright rooms and with HDR content. In my tests, however, OLED TVs can still get plenty bright for most rooms, and their superior contrast still allows them to deliver a better overall HDR image than any QLED/LCD TV I’ve tested. howwetest-tvlab-2017-cnet-11 Sarah Tew/CNET OLED has better uniformity and viewing angles. With LCD-based displays, different areas of the screen can appear brighter than others all the time, and backlight structure can also be seen in some content. Even the best LCDs also fade, lose contrast and become discolored when seen from seats other than the sweet spot directly in front of the screen. OLED TVs have almost perfectly uniform screens and maintain fidelity from all but the most extreme angles. Resolution, color, video processing and other image quality factors are basically the same. Most QLED and OLED have the same resolution, 4K, and both can achieve 8K resolution too. Neither technology has major inherent advantage in color or video processing areas. Check out OLED vs. LCD for more details. QLED can get bigger and smaller (and cheaper)There are only four sizes of OLED TV on the market today: 55-, 65-, 77- and 88-inch. Since the latter two cost $6,500 and (cough) $30,000 respectively, there’s really only two sizes most TV shoppers can afford. 35-samsung-q900Samsung’s 85-inch 8K QLED TV (above) costs $15,000.  Sarah Tew/CNET Meanwhile Samsung’s QLED TVs come in 43-, 49-, 55-, 65-, 75-, 82-, 85- and, yes, 98-inch sizes. Of course non-QLED LCD TVs can get even smaller.One big advantage, so to speak, that QLED and LCD have over OLED is the cost of mainstream sizes over 65 inches. Large televisions are the fastest-growing segment of the market and show no signs of slowing down. As I mentioned above, LG’s 77-inch OLED costs $6,500. Meanwhile Samsung’s 75-inch Q70 QLED costs $2,200 and Vizio’s 75-inch P-Series Quantum is even less. Sure, neither one can beat an OLED, but they’re still excellent performers for one-third the price.In 55- and 65-inch sizes, the highest-end, best-performing QLED models like the Q90 and the 8K resolution Q900A cost more than the cheapest OLED TV. There are numerous other, less-expensive QLED series as well, however, albeit with worse image quality.  What about OLED burn-in? Burn-in happens when a persistent part of the image onscreen — navigation buttons on a phone, or a channel logo, news ticker or a scoreboard on a TV, for example — remains as a ghostly background no matter what else appears onscreen. All OLED screens can burn-in, and from everything we know, they’re more susceptible than LCD displays, including QLED. All things considered, however, burn-in shouldn’t be a problem for most people. From all of the evidence we’ve seen, burn-in is typically caused by leaving a single, static image element, like a channel logo, onscreen for a very long time, repeatedly. That’s an issue if you keep Fox News, ESPN or MSNBC onscreen for multiple hours every day and don’t watch enough other programming, for example. But as long as you vary what’s displayed, chances are you’ll never experience burn-in. Check out OLED screen burn-in: What you need to know for more. qled-by-qdvision.jpgElectroluminescent quantum dot prototypes, which could pave the way for direct-view quantum dot TVs. QDVision Future outlook for OLED vs. QLED TVs Until I test the best QLED TVs against the LG C9, I won’t know for sure which one wins in 2019, but as I mentioned above, I’d bet on OLED.  For 2019 Samsung has improved its high-end QLED image quality again in an effort to beat OLED, while LG has, aside from a processing bump, mostly stood pat. The C9 wasn’t that much better than its predecessors, and I expect the same for Sony’s new OLED TVs. But given the basic differences between OLED and QLED tech, it would definitely surprise me if those 2019 QLED improvements allowed it to beat OLED overall. What about 2020 and later? Samsung is actually working on a version of QLED that does use emissive technology, much like OLED and plasma. Known as direct-view quantum dot, it dispenses with the liquid crystal layers and uses quantum dots themselves as the light source.  Emissive QLED TVs have the potential to match the absolute black levels and “infinite” contrast ratio of OLED, with better power efficiency, better color and more. That’s pretty exciting, but it’ll be a few years before we see emissive QLED TVs available for sale. Hopefully by then they’ll think up a new acronym (EQLEDs?).

FBI technician passed secrets to China in return for cash and prostitutes

first_imgThe FBI, as with all government departments, has to be very careful about who it employs. Different governments around the world would love to have someone on the inside feeding them information regularly, and that’s exactly what China managed to achieve at the FBI thanks to the actions of one Kun Shan Chun.Chun (also known as Joey Chun) is a 46-year-old naturalized US citizen and an electronics technician who started work at the FBI’s New York Field Office back in 1997. He must have proved himself trustworthy as he was awarded top secret security clearance a year later and therefore has had access to sensitive information held within the bureau for well over a decade. However, in 2011 he decided to throw that privilege and his career away.The ever-watching FBI Counterintelligence Division discovered that Chun had entered into a relationship with a Chinese official in 2011, but had failed to report it to the bureau. This followed several years of him and his relatives maintaining a relationship with a Chinese company called Zhuhai Kolion Technology Company Ltd. for whom Chun acted as a consultant.Then the information sharing began. Data transmissions were logged going from Chun to the Chinese official. The documents being sent included an organizational chart detailing the structure of the FBI as well as multiple photos Chun had taken of sensitive documents summarizing surveillance technologies used by the FBI.The motivation for Chun was money and other perks offered to him including access to prostitutes. In 2015 an undercover FBI agent approached Chun as a seller of US secrets and he agreed to act as a go-between in return for payment.Spending nearly 15 years working for the FBI to then betray your employer and your country for cash and prostitutes seems ridiculous to me. Maybe that’s just the cover story for a much more sinister reality. Whatever the case, Chun will not be doing anymore spying for the Chinese. He’s already pleaded guilty to “acting in the United States as an agent of the Chinese government” and sentencing will happen in December where Chun faces up to 10 years in jail.last_img read more

AI Trained on Emoji Can Detect Social Media Sarcasm

first_imgStay on target Sarcasm is often hard to recognize in speech, and even more difficult to understand as text.Fear not: A new algorithm developed by MIT to analyze tweets can allegedly detect emotional subtext “better than most people.”As reported by the MIT Technology Review, researchers initially set out to create a system capable of recognizing racist tweets. But to do so, it must also recognize sarcasm.From a dataset of 55 billion tweets, the deep learning model—publicly accessible via the DeepMoji website—feasts on “raw, uncurated expressions” on social media to grasp the subtleties of satire.Top five most likely emojis shown with model’s probability estimates (via Bjarke Felbo/MIT Media Lab)“The basic idea is that if the model can understand which emoji was included with a given sentence, then it has a good understanding of the emotional content of that sentence,” according to MIT’s project overview.See for yourself: Visit DeepMoji, type a sentence, and find out what the AI thinks. Adjust your phrase to edit the perceived emotional impact and watch as the site’s predicted emoijs—and the system’s confidence level—change accordingly.Users can also contribute to MIT’s research by annotating their own tweets with emotions.Aside from companies wanting to make sense of customer comments, the natural language processing (NLP) program could be applied to chatbot services, and even help to fight online abuse and harassment.“This research is only a small step towards more sophisticated emotion analysis,” MIT Media Lab graduate student and project lead Bjarke Felbo said.Felbo developed the algorithm in collaboration with Media Lab associate professor Iyad Rahwan, Alan Mislove (Northeastern University’s College of Computer and Information Science), Anders Søgaard (University of Copenhagen’s Department of Computer Science), and Sune Lehmann (Technical University of Denmark’s DTU Compute).Media Lab is also releasing via GitHub it’s code for preprocessing and a pre-trained model for use with the Keras framework.

Deltas 50 million quest to end lost airline luggage

first_imgTags: Delta Delta’s $50 million quest to end lost airline luggage Wednesday, August 31, 2016 Posted by Sharecenter_img LINTHICUM — Victor DaRosa stands under a scorching afternoon sun, loading bags onto a jet heading to Detroit.As each suitcase climbs up the conveyor belt into the plane, a small computer verifies that it actually belongs on that flight. If one bag didn’t, a red light would flash and the belt would stop until somebody acknowledges the mistake and reroutes the luggage.This is the future of baggage handling. Delta Air Lines is investing $50 million to soothe one of air travel’s biggest headaches: lost and delayed luggage.Delta carried nearly 120 million checked suitcases last year, collecting $25 in fees, each way, for most domestic bags. For that price, fliers expect their suitcase to be waiting on the carousel when they arrive. Delta already has one of the airline industry’s best luggage handling records — just 1 out of every 500 bags failed to arrive on time — but hopes that by deploying a RFID, or radio-frequency identification, tracking system globally it can improve further.If the system works, other airlines are likely to follow. Ultimately the bag tag might be replaced with permanent RFID readers in our suitcases, reducing the chances fliers in the future will start a vacation missing their swimsuit.“It’s a very smart move,” says Henry Harteveldt, founder of travel consultancy Atmosphere Research Group. “It’s one that will help increase customer confidence that their bags will arrive with them.”RFID wirelessly identifies tags attached to items. The technology is widely used at warehouses to track goods but Delta’s rollout is the first global use for passenger bags.To better understand the technology, think about your local supermarket. If every grocery item had an RFID tag, cashiers wouldn’t have to scan each product at checkout. Instead, the groceries would pass by a scanner and be instantly registered. Shoppers could even leave everything in their cart, having it all tallied at once.The same principles apply to checked luggage.Most airlines today use barcodes on tags to identify each suitcase — each tag has its own unique 10-digit number — and make sure it is loaded onto the right plane. But reading each barcode with a handheld scanner is time consuming. Often, a bag or two aren’t scanned or error messages are missed by workers focused on getting planes out on time.More news:  Flight Centre Travel Group takes full ownership of Quebec-based agencyDelta designed its system to stop those errors. At the airline’s 84 largest airports — accounting for 85 per cent of its passengers — Delta will have 1,500 special belt loaders with RFID readers built in. Those loaders — like the one DaRosa was using — stop when a bag for a different flight is accidently placed on the belt.“It’s amazing technology,” says DaRosa, a ramp supervisor who has been testing the technology at Baltimore Washington International Airport. “It’s going to totally eliminate a bunch of careless little errors.”Replacing handheld scanners allows ramp workers to use both hands to lift bags, reducing injuries and speeding up the loading and unloading process. RFID also shortens the time needed to find and remove a bag from a plane at the last second. All of that means more on-time flights.Delta is also using RFID to track bags through the labyrinth of conveyor belts below terminals. If bags fall off a belt at a particular curve or get suck at a junction, Delta will now have enough RFID readers — about 5,200 globally — to pinpoint the trouble spot and fix it. The Atlanta-based airline says it plans to have the system online in 344 airports by the end of August.The new tags look like traditional ones. But if held up to the light, passengers can see a fingernail-size chip and a credit card size antenna inlayed inside.By the end of this year, fliers will be able to track their bags through the Delta smartphone app, getting push notifications at each step of the journey. If a bag misses its flight, passengers are also notified instantly.That way passengers “aren’t standing at a baggage carousel waiting for the last piece of luggage to come off to realize their bag isn’t there,” says Sandy Gordon, Delta’s vice-president of airport operations for the eastern U.S.Most passengers’ bags do arrive on time. But there are so hiccups, with 1 out of every 500 bags Delta carried last year failing to do so. It’s a record surpassed by only Virgin America and JetBlue Airways, which both have smaller and simpler route networks. Twice as many were delayed last year on American Airlines, according to statistics reported to the Department of Transportation.More news:  Beep, beep! Transat hits the streets with Cubamania truckBags often get delayed when bad weather forces tight connections or passengers are rerouted onto new flights.Of the 245,000 bags Delta mishandled last year, 208,000 of them arrived within three hours, according to the airline. Another 25,000 were reunited with passengers within 12 hours. The remaining 12,000 were either lost or took more than 12 hours to be delivered.Installing RFID isn’t going to solve all of Delta’s baggage problems. But the airline estimates a 10-per cent reduction in delayed bags. That means about 25,000 fewer bags the airline has to deliver to passengers’ homes, offices or hotel rooms.For the past five years, Australian airline Qantas has offered a permanent RFID bag tag that fliers can purchase for about $23 and use when flying the airline domestically. Several big airports, including those in Las Vegas, Hong Kong, Milan and Tokyo, use RFID to track bags through parts of their systems.But Delta, the world’s second largest carrier by passenger traffic, is providing the most-comprehensive tracking the industry has seen to date.Airlines have long found RFID too pricey but the cost has dropped. McCarran International Airport in Las Vegas says it currently pays 12 cents for each RFID tag, down from 21.5 cents a decade ago. Traditional tags cost the airport 3 cents.Delta refused to say how much it’s paying for RFID bag tags, except that it is less than 10 cents each.The new tracking system won’t follow every suitcase.There are limitations.It includes bags checked at the gate and claimed at a baggage carousel. But items like strollers or bags checked at the gate for regional jets — those picked up at the arriving gate — currently aren’t tracked with RFID.If a Delta passenger connects onto a flight with a Delta partner like Air France, the traditional barcode tag takes over for the final leg of the journey. However, an Air France passenger connecting to a Delta flight gets a RFID sticker added to the traditional tag when their luggage first enters Delta’s possession.And nothing is preventing the airline from losing your bag if any of these tags get ripped off along the way.

Bahadur Rai too had echoed the same intent and sentiment in an interview to a media outlet Speaking toOutlookmagazine on 13 June 2016 Rai said "There is a single party majority and all parties are in Parliament This is the right time to convert the Lok Sabha into a Constituent Assembly" Rai then stressed "This Constitution needs to be reconsidered afresh" Rai is not a freewheeling intellectual A veteran journalist he was once the general secretary of the Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad (ABVP) He is currently chairman of the Indira Gandhi National Centre of Arts a post to which he was appointed by the Narendra Modi government in April 2016 A file image of Union Minister Anant Kumar Hegde PTI Rai laid out several reasons for reframing the Constitution including picking holes in its Preamble which is where the words "secular" and "socialist" were introduced through the 42nd amendment in 1976 The introduction of these two words changed the description of India from "sovereign democratic republic" to a "sovereign socialist secular democratic republic" It may be recalled that in his address to the Brahman Yuva Parishad in Koppal Karnataka Hegde said: "A few people say the Constitution mentions the word secular so you have to agree Because it’s there in the Constitution we will respect it but this will change in the near future The Constitution has changed many times before We are here and have come to change the Constitution We will change it" The fact that the Constitution has been changed many times was also the argument Rai cited to advocate turning the current Lok Sabha into a Constituent Assembly Rai said "There have been over 100 constitutional amendments; one every year and we still cannot say there won’t be aneed for more This in itself is proof that the Constitution does not fulfiltoday’s needs" Rai was severely critical of the Preamble He said it wasn’t even discussed in the Constituent Assembly nor was it part of the Objective Resolutions that Jawaharlal Nehru moved on 13 December 1946 and the Constituent Assembly adopted on 22 January 1947 Rai then delivered the knock-out punch: "Whatever is in the Preamble is open for a new Constituent Assembly to do as it pleases" In other words the new Constituent Assembly can delete or insert words in the Preamble Hindutva votaries as also a few others have traditionally been opposed to the Preamble mentioning India as a secular republic Rai did not explain why the Constituent Assembly was debarred from framing a Preamble just because the Objective Resolutions did not mention it
