first_imgEurodata’s scripted series report for 2018 shows that local drama was the most popular prime time genre for channels and viewers.The report, which analyses the schedules of over 100 channels in 12 countries, shows that across channels two-thirds of the series broadcast during prime time are locally produced, up five points up from 2017.Drama was most scheduled during prime time, making up 70% of the offering across the 12 countries. Other genres included comedies, soap operas and telenovelas.Swedish drama The RestaurantMeanwhile, local productions represented three-quarters of the series watched by consumers during prime time, a five point increase when compared to 2017.The report states that imports have declined both in scheduling and viewing.Israel, Turkey and the United States have the highest proportion of local series broadcast during prime time, while Sweden and Denmark have the lowest.Elsewhere, Italian series represent 41% of programming and account for two-thirds of viewing for scripted series in prime time.In eight out of twelve countries, the most popular series during prime time were new releases. This was the case with Lifeline in Turkey and The Restaurant in Sweden.A string of imported series also drew mass viewing across the countries, with The Good Doctor and Midsomer Murders both making it to top 15 most-viewed lists in three countries.Other popular titles include The Handmaid’s Tale, The Assassination of Gianni Versace and Young Sheldon.“The dynamism of the series market is illustrated in particular by the significant proportion of new launches in the national rankings: overall, a hefty 45% of the top 15 series are new ones, which represents a three point increase on the previous season. This year too, the archetype of a successful series is a locally produced crime drama,” said Candice Alessandra, international research manager at Eurodata TV Worldwide.last_img read more

first_imgAnyone with a technical degree will admit that college programmed them to consider “sell” a dirty word—to think salespeople use trickery to lure consumers into buying things they don’t need. It makes no difference whether it’s an investment product or a Pet Rock; anyone involved with selling or its evil twin marketing is guilty until proven innocent. I spent the majority of my first career in sales and marketing, where I focused on negotiations and pricing. My clients included 40 of the top 500 US corporations. Now I work alongside some of the best economists and analysts in the world, and well, let’s just say I bring a different perspective and experience base to our meetings. That difference became apparent during a recent discussion on how our subscribers can protect themselves and even profit from inflation. We were all in agreement on several key points: The government cannot continue to print money as it is without high inflation resulting. Traditional investments like precious metals will soar when the world finally discovers the US dollar is worthless. Own them, be patient, and when it hits, what a ride it will be. Billions of dollars will flow out of the stock market as interest rates begin to rise. Certain companies and industries fare better than others in an inflationary environment. Success means investing in those companies whose stock prices and dividend appreciation will grow ahead of the rate of inflation, giving investors true gains. Investors should look for: Companies with a worldwide presence to hedge against the US dollar; Companies with a history of regular dividend increases ahead of the inflation rate; and Companies that can quickly pass through their cost increases to the market. Take oil companies and airlines, for example. When oil companies notice some saber-rattling in the Middle East, the price at the pump can go up a nickel or more the next day. Contrast that with the airline industry, which does a very poor job in this regard. Why do air travel and gasoline—both considered commodities—perform so differently when their costs are rising? The major oil companies understand market dynamics as well as any industry I’ve served. If an event is going to cause their costs to rise for whatever reason, it only takes one company to raise its prices, and the competition immediately follows. Market share is generally unaffected, but the entire industry makes money. Price fixing is illegal, and that’s not what oil companies are doing. Go to the Weather Channel, surf around, and you can find the best gas prices in any given ZIP code. If you’re a dealer, you adjust your prices accordingly. After all, how far is a customer going to drive to save a couple cents per gallon when gas is priced over $3/gallon? It sounds crazy, but gas customers don’t have as much mobility as one might think. They risk spending more in gas driving around than they might save at the pump. The airlines used to do the same thing when they were a regulated industry. One company would announce a fare increase, and all the competition would follow. Now unregulated, some airlines have significant cost advantages over their competition. A few years ago, Southwest Airlines made a huge bet on the direction of fuel prices and guessed right. It had a terrific advantage over the competition, and it was reflected in its pricing. Unlike a driver needing gas, an air traveler has time to hop on the Internet and compare airfares quite easily, and price is a major factor when buying a plane ticket. While costs increase in the industry, those who maintain a cost advantage over their competition use that as an opportunity to increase their load factor. Instead of raising prices quickly, they lag behind. Fill just two or three more empty seats on a flight, and that income is straight profit. It is a very difficult industry in which to pass through cost increases quickly. Instead, for years the industry has scrambled to cut costs to remain profitable. At this point, I shared what I consider to be the best place to look for companies that will beat inflation with the team. I started with two fundamental truths about cost and pricing: In business, the cost of producing your product or service should tell you only one thing about how you should set your price: specifically, the price you don’t want to sell it for. The selling price should be the value of your goods or services in the mind of the customer, as tempered by competition. Too many businesses set their selling price as a formula called “cost plus,” which is the wrong way to go about it. Your cost information tells you when you’re losing money on every sale. There are companies that price their goods below cost with the intention of building up enough volume to bring their unit cost down in order to become profitable. Sometimes it works. But the sooner it does so the better, because these companies cannot continue losing money forever. Take Amazon.com, for example. It used price as its main competitive advantage for years, delivering few if any profits for the better part of a decade as it grew. There can really be only one strong price leader, and that leader will condemn itself to being a low-margin, low-profit business so long as it competes on price alone. From a marketing perspective, there are two different types of markets: concept and brand markets. In a concept market, a new idea, technology, philosophy, or methodology is sold. A brand market is an established market where competitors are fighting for market share. The iPad is an easy example. The iPad was a new concept called a tablet computer. The competition was a different technology—an expensive notebook computer, your home computer, or a smartphone. In a concept market, many times you’re creating a market (tablets) at the expense of another market (portable computers). Personal computers, for their part, completely destroyed the typewriter market. Apple is a great marketing company, its technology is excellent, and it understood it could price the new gadget below its true competition (computers) and still make terrific margins. As a new market is created, competition sees the opportunity and jumps in. In the early stages, it validates the concept, and the total market growth accelerates even faster. Competition normally prices its product under the pricing umbrella of the market leader. At the same time, they may drop off a feature or two to keep their costs down. That further reinforces the market leader as the technology leader. Eventually the market is created, and competition begins fighting for market share. Look at what’s happened to the printer business. Printers have now turned into a commodity—almost a disposable product, really. The market is now a brand market. Capitalism creates competition, which benefits the consumer. Each competitor is trying to convince consumers that their brand is better than the competition’s, and price is an important factor in that contest. The next thing I look at is who dominates the market. You may be surprised to find the company with the highest quality and highest price is also a low-cost producer because they have the lion’s share of the market. Rather than cut price, Apple continues to upgrade the quality of its products to keep the competition in continual catch-up mode as opposed to leapfrogging their technology. Because the dominant market leader provides the pricing umbrella for the industry, this creates an interesting Catch-22 in an inflationary environment. As production costs rise, the longer the dominant player hangs on, the more difficult it is for the competition, because they cannot pass on their cost increases to the consumer. If they raise prices, they will lose market share. Once the big boy announces a price increase, the rest of the market generally follows. The dominant market leader also recognizes there are certain segments where price is a major consideration. There is now a market niche for basic, low-cost tablets. If the leader tries to cut its price to capture that segment, it has to determine how much additional share it would gain to offset the margin loss on the share it currently has. In addition, there are laws concerning predatory pricing, meaning pricing your products with the intention of driving your competition out of business. Concept sellers are generally content to open up a new market, and expect some loss of market share as it matures. Let’s look at some real numbers: Apple’s share price rose with the iPad very well, and it’s holding good margins. Now the iPhone5 is out, and the company is hoping for similar results. There are many examples of concept sales in the technology sector (with which BIG TECH and Casey Extraordinary Technology subscribers should be familiar); however, concept sales take place in many markets. One of our holdings in the Money Forever portfolio has developed a new type of noninvasive medical test that gives better results with much less trauma to the patient. Its main competition is not a similar test, but rather the older, less-effective technology. As this new test becomes the standard, various brands will begin fighting over market share. In the meantime, the company is rapidly growing and maintaining excellent profit margins along the way. In turn, its shareholder value is really accelerating. There are countless TV commercials for products and services like online dating services, reverse mortgages, or hair color for men, all of which are still in the concept stage. The companies are all still selling their idea as opposed to why they are better than the competition. Much of their success will depend on the size of the market they create with their ideas. Direct competitors offering a lower price to garner market share is of little concern. Companies that create new concepts by finding large markets with needs begging for solutions will prosper. That’s one reason the technology sector is ripe with these success stories. How many products do we use today that were not even invented 20 years ago? Our research team is constantly on the lookout for concept sellers in all markets throughout the world. Those who recognize the opportunity ahead of the crowd (before we learn about them on television) will see some extraordinary gains. They will thrive in any market, even during high inflation. Concept sellers range from smaller companies with new ideas or technologies to huge companies like Apple or Sony that develop new products to fill needs they see in the market. When one finds a need and develops a product that’s in high consumer demand, its stock will generally rise, even in a tough market, and its gross margins will be protected because it can more easily pass cost increases to the customers.

No skiing in Florida, but I did enjoy watching football games played in blizzards. I can’t imagine 60,000 semi-sober fans leaving the stadium, finding their cars covered by a foot of fresh snow, and then trying to exit the parking lot. The Monday night game in Chicago had a wind chill of 9 degrees below zero. Right after I married Jo, I decided to take my bride and stepdaughter Holly from Fort Myers, Florida to Chicago for a Bears game. The wind chill was well below zero, and we were bundled up as well as Floridians could be. After the game, we went with the Bears Fan Club to Butch McGuire’s, where the team’s president gave our club president a game ball. I have a photo of Holly sitting on one of the player’s laps, grinning from ear to ear. Despite the cold, they loved it. The girls were really good troupers. But if we want to watch the Bears now, we wait until they come to Florida! I’m giving in to Father Time when it comes to cold weather. And finally… Speaking of time, I read some material about being politically correct. Apparently words like “old,” “fat,” “bald,” and “hard of hearing” are now offensive.

first_imgI’m sure you got this, but an ETF is a major deal. I am back as a true believer if that happens! —Mary Justin’s note: When I read today’s essay over the weekend, I knew I had to share it immediately.It comes from our good friend Jeff Brown, Bonner & Partners’ top tech analyst. And it reveals an opportunity that’s both massive… and flying under every mainstream investor’s radar.Read on to see how one piece of technology could secure America’s economic dominance for decades… By Jeff Brown, editor, The Near Future ReportEarly this year, we almost saw the largest corporate merger between two technology companies in history.The companies in question were U.S. semiconductor giants Qualcomm and Broadcom.Broadcom had been pursuing Qualcomm since November 2017. It initially offered an unsolicited bid of $103 billion to acquire controlling interest of Qualcomm.Qualcomm resisted. So Broadcom took another route.It initiated a hostile takeover of Qualcomm. That’s when the acquiring company attempts to bypass its target’s board and purchases a controlling interest in the company directly from shareholders. Very often, this means offering to buy shares at a premium.At $117 billion, the new bid for Qualcomm would have represented the largest technology merger in history.But then the White House stepped in… and this past March, President Trump blocked the merger. The president said that “credible evidence” suggested that the takeover would pose a risk to U.S. national security.The official details are classified. But I believe I know why the White House took this unprecedented step.At the heart of the president’s decision to block the merger is fifth-generation (5G) wireless technology.I’ll explain exactly why in just a moment.But before we get to that, let me provide some context for why 5G will be such a pivotal technological advancement… Revealed For The First Time in Exclusive Live Event…The Step-By-Step Blueprint Big Wall Street Institutions Use to Steal Opportunities from the Little GuyThink Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies are a fad, over-hyped, worthless? That’s exactly what they want you to think… In this exclusive broadcast, you’ll discover how these institutions have, in the past, taken opportunities from the little guy. Why they’re doing it all over again now. And cut through the spin so you can see the truth with your own eyes. Register for this free event now, and get three free investment recommendations, plus the chance to claim part of an exclusive $2 Million Dollar Bitcoin Giveaway. Details here. Matter of National SecurityCountries that lead the way in deploying these networks will have a competitive economic advantage over other countries. And the technology companies in these “first-mover” countries will be the first to develop the hardware and software enabling these 5G wireless services.Right now, the government’s fear is that China will set the 5G precedent.For context, Chinese company Huawei supplies the infrastructure and support for more than half of the 537 4G networks around the world. And recently, it was caught using its technology to spy on U.S. network traffic.This led to Huawei being banned from the U.S. and several other western markets over spying concerns.The U.S. government sees it as imperative that U.S. wireless networks are built out quickly—with U.S. and European technology—to ensure that the country’s networks are less likely to fall victim to foreign espionage.That’s why the Trump administration blocked the Broadcom/Qualcomm merger.You see, while Broadcom recently stated its intention to bring most of its business back to the U.S., the bulk of its business is still based in Singapore. And while Singapore is its own country, it’s heavily controlled by Chinese Singaporeans.The concern was that Broadcom would force Qualcomm to cut back on its research and development into 5G, letting Huawei fill the void… and making U.S. wireless networks vulnerable to cyberspying.This isn’t wild speculation, either.The Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States, a government agency that oversees foreign investment in American companies, specifically mentioned the threat posed by Huawei when officially recommending the blocking of the Broadcom/Qualcomm merger.The Trump administration even threatened to take things one step further…Nationalized InfrastructureIn January of this year, leaked White House documents showed that the U.S. government was considering nationalizing the 5G network buildout—in other words, seizing control of wireless networks from AT&T, Verizon, and other service providers… and putting them in the hands of the government.My hunch is that this was just a warning… a way to light a fire under the U.S. companies involved in the 5G buildout.The feds were saying, “Get out there and build these 5G networks quickly, or we’ll do it for you.”This was a very smart move by the current administration. And it worked.Verizon and AT&T—along with T-Mobile and Sprint, which are in the process of merging—are already building out 5G networks.The hope is to have the U.S. regain leadership in wireless network deployments, which will stimulate even stronger leadership in wireless network technology.If the U.S. fails, the government fears that America would be dependent on Chinese technology to make use of 5G. That would give China an enormous amount of leverage over the U.S.Verizon is building out its 5G network in Sacramento, California. It says it will have 5G infrastructure built out in five or six other American cities before the end of the year.AT&T is building out its 5G network in Waco, Texas. It also has a long list of cities it aims to have a presence in by the end of the year. One of them will likely be Atlanta.And T-Mobile—the third-largest mobile communications provider in the U.S.—says it will be launching in 30 cities before 2018 is over.The 5G infrastructure boom isn’t some distant event. It’s happening right now. And of course, there is a way for investors to gain exposure…How to Play It… in Three StagesTo best determine how to play this trend, we have to look at what stage of the game we’re in.You see, these buildouts happen in predictable phases… Recommended Link After that, new devices (smartphones) that work with the towers are developed. First, the physical infrastructure (cell towers) is put up. — Right now, we’re in the infrastructure phase of the 5G buildout.For 4G, it took about 200,000 cell towers to build out a nationwide network. A 5G network buildout will require around 1,000,000 cell towers—a 5x increase. When all is said and done, there will be a 5G tower on nearly every street corner.Check out the chart below. It shows how spending on 4G wireless infrastructure changed over time.Spending on the 4G wireless infrastructure hit about $200 billion a year at its peak. I expect 5G infrastructure spending will hit a peak of $275 billion and will require a minimum of $200 billion annual spending through 2025.The best bet right now is to look at the companies that will handle the physical infrastructure.American Tower (AMT) is one way to gain exposure. It’s a wireless communications infrastructure company. It builds and maintains communications infrastructure, like cell towers.It was instrumental in the 4G buildout that started in 2011. And it’s also heavily involved in erecting and maintaining the towers used in the 5G buildout.The chart below shows the performance of AMT from 2011, when the 4G buildout started, to present. I expect American Tower will continue to climb as 5G infrastructure continues to be built.Betting on companies that were instrumental to the 4G buildout, such as American Tower, is an easy way to gain exposure to this unstoppable trend.Regards,Jeff Brown Editor, The Near Future ReportP.S. The completion of the 5G wireless network is essential if America is to maintain its economic dominance over countries like China. That’s why the president is pulling out all the stops to get the network built. And as 5G revolutionizes our communications networks, it will also send a handful of companies soaring…I’ve already shared four companies with readers of my Near Future Report. I expect some of these companies to at least double, perhaps more, in the next 12 months. I put together a brief video presentation with all the details right here.Reader MailbagIn last week’s Dispatch, we explained why a new bitcoin ETF could send the cryptocurrency soaring 5x from here.

Recommended Link I own bitcoin and several other cryptocurrencies. I understand the new ETF will boost bitcoin to new heights, and I assume that other cryptos will skyrocket too. It depends on what cryptos will join bitcoin in the new ETF and what weight they will have. Do you have any insight as to what cryptos your readers need to own along with bitcoin? —Thomas Network EvolutionWhen you connect to the internet on your computer, smartphone, or smart TV, a vast physical communications infrastructure makes that connection possible.Hundreds of thousands of miles of transoceanic cables connect to vast, land-based fiber optic networks, which in turn connect to consumers’ homes and businesses.Over the years, these wireless networks—and the infrastructure that supports them—have evolved.It all started in the 1980s with first-generation (1G) networks. Compared to what’s possible today, it didn’t allow much. You could only place voice calls—there was no layer for carrying other types of data. And you had to use one of those brick-sized cell phones Gordon Gekko yaps into in the movie Wall Street.But from then on, a new network generation went live roughly once every 10 years. Each provided faster download speeds and more applications. The most recent one, 4G, went live around 2011.Now we’re shifting to the fifth generation of wireless networks—5G. And it represents the largest leap in wireless technology to date.1,000 Times FasterThe current 4G networks are a disappointment.The developers that built the 4G network thought it would deliver average download speeds of 100 megabits per second (Mbps). But in reality, most people only see speeds of about 10 Mbps.[Megabits per second, or Mbps, is a common measurement for internet connection and download speeds. For example, to stream a high-definition video from Netflix, you need a download speed of at least 5 Mbps.]At 10 Mbps, the U.S. has some of the slowest internet speeds in the world. We’re in 50th place, behind Romania (at 27 Mbps) and Finland (at 17 Mbps). Even Dracula and the reindeer have internet speeds faster than most Americans.But with 5G, the peak speed jumps to 10 gigabits per second (Gbps). One gigabit is 1,000 megabits. So at peak speed, 5G will be 1,000 times faster than the average 4G connection we have today.Even if we just assume that average 5G speeds would be 10% of their potential, we’re still looking at 1,000 Mbps. That means that average 5G speeds will be 100 times faster than what we have today.With that kind of speed, you’ll be able to download a two-hour movie in 10 seconds. Dropped phone calls and slow-loading web pages will be a thing of the past.Plus, some previously “sci-fi” tech will finally become a reality. Technologies like self-driving cars, virtual reality, and holographic projection will all operate over high-speed 5G connections. The applications are endless.5G is a game-changer because of all the technological innovation it will bring about. It’ll be responsible for $12 trillion worth of new goods and services by 2035. That’s about 60% of America’s total GDP in 2017.And here’s why the government considers the completion of 5G a matter of national security… Trump Declares National Emergency President Trump has mobilized his entire administration to battle this problem by declaring it a National Emergency under federal law. And Congress just approved $6 billion to fight it. Now a company is joining the battle by tackling one of the biggest problems our country has ever faced. In the past, companies in this niche saw peak gains of 96,900%, 196,500% and 787,400%. Could this new company be the next to ride this unique wave?

first_imgBy WVUA 23 Web Coordinator Nikki LazzaraThis year’s flu epidemic is turning out to be the worst seen in years. Doctors, day care facilities and other local businesses are doing everything they can to make sure their customers remain as healthy as possible.“The flu has been especially bad this year especially in young children and the elderly population,” said Elaina Sexton a physician at American Family Care.About every eight to 10 years we experience a big outbreak like this one.Gyms are very hands-on facilities and are perfect places to catch the flu if equipment is not properly cleaned . At the Orangetheory Fitness in Tuscaloosa, an average of 260 people a day walk through the door, which is why they’re doing what they can to prevent the spread.Studio manager Marisha Smith said she has a list for her staff each day to keep the facility as clean as possible so members are working out in a healthy environment.Even after-care school facilities like the Boys and Girls Club of West Alabama are doing everything they can to prevent the flu from spreading. Everything from wiping down computers to having kids wash their hands every time before they eat their after school snack.Kim Turner, the CEO of Boys and Girls Club of West Alabama, stressed that safety continues to be their No. 1 concern.“Part of that is cleanliness to keep kids physically safe so every afternoon our staff has a cleaning schedule,” said Turner. “All of our games are wiped down, all of our handles are wiped down with Clorox wipes.”Turner also stressed that kids should keep their hands to themselves in order to physically keep kids safe and healthy.To avoid the flu this season, wipe down objects being used on a daily basis. With spring around the corner, flu season may be gone sooner than later.last_img read more

first_imgA local substitute teacher is facing a criminal charge, for allegedly having sex with one of her students.The woman facing the charge of school employee engaging in a sex act with a student under the age of nineteen is 54-year-old Meta Diane Lovely of Duncanville.Court records show Lovely was a highly requested substitute teacher at Paul W. Bryant High School where the 16-year- old student attended.Information within those records reveal the student told police he frequently went to Lovely’s classroom, which led to social media communication and eventually phone communication between the two.The student said his relationship with Lovely turned sexual and the two began meeting to have sexual intercourse at his residence and other places.In those same documents, it’s written that Lovely denies having sex with the student and they she claims to have only communicated with him as a mentor, but did go to the young man’s house without permission from his mother…where she stayed only for 6 minutes.Lovely’s attorney, Mary Turner released a statement saying, “Meta is innocent and adamantly denies these allegations.Lovely turned herself in to police Wednesday morning and was placed in the Tuscaloosa County Jail on a $30,000.00 bond.last_img read more

With four rounds of qualifying remaining all 13 E

With four rounds of qualifying remaining all 13 E

first_imgWith four rounds of qualifying remaining, all 13 European slots for the World Cup are still up for grabs. The picture should become clearer over the next week, with Germany able to secure its place at next year’s tournament in Russia.The nine group winners qualify automatically. The worst runner-up will be eliminated, but the other eight second-place teams enter a playoff round in November with the four winners qualifying for the World Cup.Here is the state of play in the groups:GROUP HBelgium is on a smooth passage to the World Cup, which could get even smoother if the group leaders can complete the next week with victories over last-place Gibraltar and Greece. But the Greeks, four points behind in second place, are the only team to take points off Belgium so far by drawing 1-1 in March.If Greece beats Estonia on Thursday and then secures a victory over Belgium on Sunday, the pursuit of first place would be wide open going in the final two rounds of matches in October.Bosnia-Herzegovina is challenging for second place, a point behind Greece. Both of their meetings have been draws. The toughest game remaining for the Bosnians is against Belgium next month after trips to Cyprus and Gibraltar in the coming days.___GROUP AAfter being in comfortable control of Group A, France is now in a more precarious position going into Thursday’s game against the Netherlands.A comical error by goalkeeper Hugo Lloris gifted Sweden a 2-1 win in the last round, giving the Swedes 13 points at the top of the group alongside France and leaving the Dutch within striking distance.A win for the Netherlands at Stade de France will move it level with European Championship runner-up France, and turn the group it into a three-way scrap with three matches remaining.Sweden will be hoping France loses or draws but faces a tough trip of its own to Bulgaria, which can maintain its slim chances of qualifying with a win.Last-place Luxembourg hosts struggling Belarus in the other game.___GROUP BSwitzerland has a perfect six-win record at the top of the group, while Portugal has won five straight since an opening 2-0 loss to the Swiss and has a much better goal difference. An Oct. 10 showdown in Lisbon will likely decide which team wins the group and which must go through the playoff round.Until then, the No. 4-ranked Swiss host Andorra on Thursday and play at Latvia on Sunday.European champion Portugal hosts the Faeroe Islands and travels to Hungary, which has slumped since reaching the last 16 at Euro 2016.___GROUP CWorld Cup champion Germany, one of two countries to win its opening six qualifying games, looks unstoppable and could qualify over the next week.If the Germans beat the Czech Republic on Friday, they will be guaranteed first place with a home win over Norway on Monday and if second-place Northern Ireland fails to beat the Czechs on the same night.Germany has scored more goals (27) and conceded fewer (1) than any other country in European qualifying.Northern Ireland, which last appeared at a World Cup in 1986, could close in on at least a playoff place by beating San Marino on Friday. The Czech Republic is in third place, four points behind the Northern Irish with four games left.___GROUP DWith the top four teams — Serbia, Ireland, Wales and Austria — separated by four points, there is still everything to play for in a group that looked difficult to predict from the outset.Serbia is ahead of Ireland on goal difference, and they play each other in Dublin on Monday. Before then, Serbia hosts Moldova and Ireland is at Georgia on Friday.Wales and Austria are even on points in third and fourth place, four points behind their rivals, and meet in Cardiff on Saturday. Whichever team loses will likely be out of realistic contention for a top-two finish.Wales, which reached the semifinals of the European Championship last year and has Gareth Bale back from suspension, has drawn five of its six qualifiers.___GROUP EPoland is closing in on securing a spot in the top-seeded pot at the World Cup draw on Dec. 1 in Moscow.Robert Lewandowski has scored 11 goals in qualifying — tied with Cristiano Ronaldo for most in the European zone — and Poland is six points ahead of second-place Montenegro. Poland plays Friday at third-place Denmark, and hosts Kazakhstan three days later.Montenegro travels to play the winless Kazakhs before hosting Romania.Denmark is level on points with Montenegro and needs to take three points from Armenia on Monday.___GROUP FIt has been an unconvincing qualifying campaign by England, which played one game under Sam Allardyce and subsequently Gareth Southgate. Yet the group favorites remain unbeaten and have won four of their six games to lead the group by two points.A potentially defining match comes on Monday, when second-place Slovakia visits Wembley Stadium. A win for the English would bring the team close to a spot in Russia.England will prepare for that match by playing last-place Malta on Friday, when Slovakia hosts Slovenia in Trnava. Slovenia is in third place, three points behind England.It is England’s first round of internationals since Wayne Rooney, the country’s record scorer, retired from international duty. Although the striker had been dropped for recent matches, Southgate still wanted the experienced Rooney back in the squad for the upcoming qualifiers.___GROUP GSpain and Italy meet in one of the most-anticipated games in European qualifying, with the winner moving into good position to qualify. Both teams have five wins in addition to the draw between them last year in Turin.There will be only three games left for each of the teams after they meet Saturday at the Santiago Bernabeu Stadium, all against the group’s weaker teams.Since only the group winner automatically qualifies, the winner of Saturday’s match will be set to make it to Russia without having to go through a playoff.___GROUP IThe tightest European group, toughest to predict and most likely to make news off the field has Croatia, Iceland, Turkey and Ukraine all separated by only two points.Third-place Turkey has the biggest week ahead, playing at Ukraine and on Saturday and hosting first-place Croatia on Tuesday.Iceland has kept momentum from its inspiring run to the Euro 2016 quarterfinals and travels to Finland before hosting Ukraine. Croatia has a solid goal difference advantage over second-place Iceland and should solidify its group lead Friday against visiting Kosovo in Zagreb.___More AP World Cup coverage: https://apnews.com/tag/WorldCup___AP Sports Writers Tales Azzoni, Steve Douglas, Graham Dunbar, Rob Harris and Jerome Pugmire contributed to this report.TweetPinShare0 Shareslast_img read more

MILWAUKEE AP — Eric Bledsoe stole the show in a

MILWAUKEE AP — Eric Bledsoe stole the show in a

first_imgMILWAUKEE (AP) — Eric Bledsoe stole the show in a marquee matchup between the Milwaukee Bucks and Houston Rockets on Tuesday night.With top-billing going to MVP front-runners Giannis Antetokounmpo and James Harden, the feisty Bucks’ guard turned in one his best all-around performances of the season as the Bucks pulled away for a 108-94 victory on Tuesday night.Bledsoe poured in 23 points, including 16 in a decisive third quarter, and tightly guarded Harden for most of the game.“I just try to play to my strengths,” Bledsoe said.Bucks coach Mike Budenholzer praised Bledsoe’s all-around performance.“To do what he did on both ends of the court, pretty special,” Budenholzer said. “I think he loves that challenge. I think he’s an incredible defender.”Antetokounmpo had 19 points and 14 rebounds for Milwaukee, which improved to an NBA-best 56-19.Houston Rockets’ Gary Clark and Milwaukee Bucks’ Khris Middleton go after a loose ball during the second half of an NBA basketball game Tuesday, March 26, 2019, in Milwaukee. The Bucks won 108-94. (AP Photo/Morry Gash)Harden scored 23 points and Chris Paul had 19 for Houston, which lost for just the third time in 17 games. Harden shot just 9 of 26, including 1 for 9 from 3-point range with Bledsoe closely guarding him throughout most of the game.“We had our open shots. We couldn’t know them down,” Harden said. “We competed but they went on a run in that third quarter and that was it.”After a tightly contested first half, the Bucks grabbed control in the third, sparked by Bledsoe’s clutch shooting. Leading by five at halftime, Milwaukee built a 19-point lead in the third. Bledsoe went 4 of 5 on 3-pointers in the period after missing his only two attempts in the first half. His third-quarter output, which included a single-handed 11-0 run, nearly matched the 18 points scored by Houston.“Everybody got energy out of that and we played even harder,” Antetokounmpo said.Milwaukee held the Rockets at bay for most of the final quarter, maintaining a double-digit lead throughout before clearing the bench with about a minute left.The Rockets jumped out early, building a 10-point first-quarter lead without Harden doing the bulk of the scoring. Danuel House Jr. paced Houston with nine points in the period, making all three of his 3-point attempts. The Bucks struggled in the opening period, shooting just 8 of 25, including 3 for 13 from deep. Khris Middleton missed all six of his shots in the first quarter.Milwaukee fought back in the second and eventually grabbed the lead. A key sequence came midway through the quarter when, after a basket by Ersan Ilyasova, Bledsoe stole the inbounds pass, scored and then stood face-to-face with Harden under the basket as the crowd roared.Milwaukee Bucks’ Sterling Brown shoots past Houston Rockets’ Danuel House Jr. during the second half of an NBA basketball game Tuesday, March 26, 2019, in Milwaukee. The Bucks won 108-94. (AP Photo/Morry Gash)The Bucks led 58-53 at the break, paced by Antetokounmpo’s 13 points and eight rebounds.Houston coach Mike D’Antoni blamed an uncharacteristic rash of turnovers in the second quarter for allowing the Bucks to grab the lead.“We got sloppy,” D’Antoni said. “We turned the ball over four times in transition, errant passes that they capitalized on.”INJURY BUGThe Bucks have been beset with injuries that have altered their lineup. When starting guard Malcolm Brogdon went down with a partial plantar fascia tear earlier this month, Budenholzer replaced him with Nikola Mirotic, who then injured his left thumb and likely is sidelined for the rest of the regular season. Tony Snell, who stepped in for Mirotic, is out with a sprained ankle. Sterling Brown, who sat out 13 games with right wrist soreness before returning to the lineup last week, started against the Rockets. And now, rookie Donte DiVincenzo is expected to miss the rest of the regular season and playoffs due to heel bursitis that has forced him to miss 28 games. DiVincenzo, the 17th overall pick in the draft, is expected to get an injection to address the problem.TIP-INSRockets: Gordon started despite dealing with an injured right ankle sustained Sunday. … F/C Kenneth Faried sat out with a sore left knee. … G/F Gerald Green is expected to be out for seven to 10 days with a strained adductor.Bucks: G Donte DiVincenzo (bilateral heel bursitis), C Pau Gasol (left ankle soreness) remained out, along with Mirotic and Brogdon.UP NEXTRockets: Host the Denver Nuggets on Thursday.Bucks: Host the Los Angeles Clippers on Thursday.___By RICH ROVITO Associated PressTweetPinShare0 Shareslast_img read more

Last weekend The Vagina Monologues was performed f

Last weekend The Vagina Monologues was performed f

first_imgLast weekend The Vagina Monologues was performed for the first time in Myanmar. Audiences loved it. Each performance was filled to capacity.But right up to the opening curtain of the free event, organizers worried that the country might not be ready for a politicized play about female genitalia and empowerment. After all, when they called a sweet shop in Yangon, the country’s largest city, and asked for a culinary tie-in — vagina-shaped lollipops — the proprietor hung up.Fortunately, their next attempt went a little better. When they called a bakery to request the vaginal symbol — [{*}] — on cupcakes, the woman who answered the phone cut to the chase.”So basically in the shape of a vagina, no?” said the baker, Ei Thet.Ei Thet says she’d never had a request like that before but was happy to give it a try.Her openness helped put their minds at ease. Perhaps the locals were ready for the play.Last weekend, 26 women — from Myanmar and abroad — performed the series of monologues about vaginas. And the vagina-shaped cupcakes sold out.Ready or not?The Vagina Monologues was written in 1994 by American playwright and activist Eve Ensler. On Valentine’s Day 1998, she broadened it into a global campaign called V-Day. Each February, to encourage women around the world to perform the work, Ensler suspends the play’s copyright. This year, she extended that status through March.Taking the play international has helped spotlight its universal appeal — even in Myanmar, one of the world’s most conservative countries.”We still can’t talk about the vagina,” says Nandar, a 23-year-old feminist and one of the event’s organizers. Nandar, who goes by one name, read the play’s monologue “My Angry Vagina.” It’s a rant about how society feels the need to create products to clean and perfume vaginas, explains Nandar, “even though it is part of a woman’s body, something that gave birth to all of us.”After growing up in a village in Shan state — where women aren’t allowed to touch men, wash their hair or leave the house if they are menstruating — Nandar says she hopes these monologues will hold up a mirror to some of the discriminatory beliefs and negative attitudes perpetuated in her homeland.Nandar helped Irena Grizelj, a consultant for a peace-building agency and the primary organizer of the event, set up the show. Irena Grizelj says she was inspired after watching a diverse group of women in Myanmar begin a frank discussion about the play’s themes, using the monologues as a starting point: “The whole point of The Vagina Monologues is to stir up a discussion. The title itself makes you talk! The monologues are bold, provocative, subtle and funny.”Besides, says Nandar, “We were told our vaginas are dirty, not to touch. That’s such bulls**t.”Before the play debuted in Yangon, organizers weren’t the only ones who were nervous. Several performers weren’t sure if the timing was right for such a controversial play.”I was excited to hear that this would be on in Myanmar but also a bit nervous about the reaction from the public,” says 24-year-old Evelyn Yu Yu Swe, a DJ and founder of Myanmar’s Women’s Self Defence Centre. Over the past two years, her team of nine trainers has taught more than 400 women.A man was movedActually, this wasn’t the first time the Vagina Monologues has had an impact in Myanmar. Two years ago, a writer named Moe Thet Han found the text online and was drawn to its audacious title. He was especially moved by the monologue “My Vagina Was My Village” — an eerily poetic verse in which a woman recounts her wartime rape and compares it to the destruction of a village.He decided to translate the monologue and wrote an article about its power for Rainfall, a feminist magazine. He says he was the first in Myanmar to write about The Vagina Monologues.And the some of the themes of the play are topics of current discussion. On March 8, International Women’s Day, the Karen Women Organisation (KWO) called out the army’s reported use of rape against minorities — and called for the perpetrators to be brought to justice.”Their time is up,” said a statement from KWO, which represents the Karen people of southern Myanmar. “No woman from Burma of any background should experience these attacks — not the Rohingya, not the Shan, not the Kachin, not the Karen.”Finding freedom For many here, this kind of thinking is long overdue.A Karen woman named Zoncy, who performed the “My Vagina Was My Village” monologue, says that “vagina discussion has never happened in my life — even with my mum or sisters or friends. I feel like I am free now.”In an impromptu Q&A after the last show, on March 24, a performer named Thinn Thinn spoke about her experience reading “They Beat the Girl Out of My Boy.” The monologue describes the life of a transgender person. For Thinn Thinn, who isn’t transgender herself, this was the first time she reflected on the treatment of transgender people in Myanmar. She spoke to the audience about the perspective she gained.”In Myanmar,” she told the crowd, “[transgender people] don’t have a place. I want transgender people to come to this performance and know [that] this is their space.”Hopes and laughs Audiences who saw the play in Yangon this year received a program that summarized each monologue in the Myanmar language. Due to time constraints, only two of the monologues — “My Vagina Was My Village” and “My Short Skirt” — were fully translated. (Moe Thet Han was one of the two translators working on the project.)Given the play’s popularity, some are discussing the possibility of translating all of the monologues next year.”I hope this performance of ‘The Vagina Monologues’ will help inspire conversations around women’s sexuality,” says Evelyn Yu Yu Swe. She hopes those conversations won’t be confined to “women’s sexual experience through the clinical lens of ‘reproductive health.’ [I hope we can] really start to talk about women’s sexual lives, sexual pleasure, all the other aspects of sexuality that affect women beyond periods, menstruation and reproduction.”Nandar agrees. The first performances weren’t perfect, she concedes. But they were a first step.They were also a way to bring a sense of humor to a serious subject.A doctor named Thet Su Htwe, who founded a group called Strong Flowers to teach about reproductive health, family planning and relationships, would close each night’s performance by sharing some of the names that people use for “vagina” in Myanmar. When she said that some refer to it as a “samosa” — in Myanmar, those are salty potato-and-onion pastries — the audience erupted in laughter.Libby Hogan is a multimedia journalist based in Myanmar.

Here you have a government agency whose mission i

first_img“Here you have a government agency whose mission is to alert people of imminent dangers, and the one thing they’re supposed to do isn’t being done very well, because the message is garbled,” says Covington.So what kind of technology is used for sending weather alerts?George Newman, the chief operator and operations manager at WFDD, spends much of his time troubleshooting the equipment at the station. That includes making sure our Emergency Alert Services, or EAS machine, is functioning properly. The Sage Digital ENDEC is used to receive and send all types of alerts, including those from the National Weather Service. EDDIE GARCIA/WFDDOurs is a blue box called a Sage Digital ENDEC. Newman says it’s an encoder and decoder that brings in all the systems WFDD is required to monitor.“You can hear it’s clear, but there’s some static in the background,” says Newman. “National Weather Service alerts are consistent because they’re coming from the same place.”So how are these alerts made?The alerts are composed on a custom workstation called WarnGen. And though there have been updates, it has been in use since the late 1990s.Nick Petro works for the National Weather Service in Raleigh. He’s their warning coordination meteorologist. That means he’s a liaison between the teams that get weather info out to the public.“So what happens then is once the alert is created it goes across our internal network,” Petro says. “It creates the audio, and it uses a voice synthesizer to create the actual warning. And then it gets pushed out through our software that manages the NOAA weather radio broadcast.”A voice synthesizer – so what we’re hearing is a synthetic interpretation of a human voice.  What could affect the sound quality of this weatherperson simulation? Petro says there are a number of variables.“That audio signal is sent over telephone lines,” he says. “There’s one point of entry for maybe signal degradation or static to enter the stream.”Were talking landlines here. Yes, the kind that once upon a time we relied on for a phone call. That telephone line leads to a transmitter that sends the message into the air.Petro says that’s “another entry point for static or signal degradation to get in the system.””A lot of times the weather or atmospheric conditions can affect the way radio waves propagate and alter or introduce static into an audio stream.”So if this system of sending and receiving is so potentially noisy, why is it still being done this way? Are any changes in the works?“That, I would say, would probably take some effort,” Petro says. “And I don’t know what it would take. I don’t know what the cost involved would be. I don’t know if there are any efforts to do any upgrades. But certainly, the system that we have in place now is the system that we have. If there is a solution to make it better out there, I’m not really sure what that is, or how, or when any such improvements could be deployed.”That’s one of the reasons Petro urges you to look into backup methods, like a NOAA weather radio, or apps, such as Ready NC, Weather Underground, NOAA Weather Radar, or Hurricane Tracker. And with a major storm on the way, a battery-powered portable radio can be very helpful for getting up to the minute alerts. For more ideas on being prepared for disasters, check out Ready.gov.  And stay safe out there. One of the services that radio stations like WFDD provide is broadcasting alerts from the National Weather Service. These emergency alerts let listeners know about weather concerns, helping folks stay safe. With Hurricane Florence being on track to hit the East Coast this week, and a state of emergency in place in North Carolina, these types of messages are important.And many times, those announcements are clear. But sometimes, those messages are clear as mud. You may have heard one that was a little noisy, or distorted, and felt frustrated that you couldn’t decipher it.Listener Howard Covington shares your concern.He asks, “Why in an era of broadcasting advances can’t the weather service produce an alert that can be easily understood?”Covington feels that with modern technology, we should hear crisp audio.center_img 0/140Your contact infoWe’ll be in touch if we look into your question.NameEmail addressZip Code Sign me up for your newsletter!Please don’t publish my nameSubmitSupported by Reynolda House Museum of American Artpowered by Hearkenlast_img read more
