Diesel supplement to remain in company car tax to 2021

first_imgAutumn Statement 2015: The government will retain the diesel supplement in company car tax.There will be a 3-percentage point differential between diesel cars and petrol cars from April 2016 to 2021, when EU-wide testing procedures will ensure new diesel cars meet air quality standards under strict real world driving conditions.The announcement was made during Chancellor George Osborne’s Autumn Statement speech today (25 November).The government also announced that it will spend more than £600 million to support the production and take up of ultra-low emission vehicles (ULEVs) between 2015-16 and 2020-21.Osborne said: “The development and sale of ultra-low emission vehicles will continue to be supported, but in light of the slower than expected introduction of more rigorous EU emissions testing, we will delay the removal of the diesel supplement from company cars until 2021.”John Harding, employment tax partner at PricewaterhouseCoopers, added: “Employees who have a diesel car through their work are in for a nasty tax surprise.“They face an unexpected additional tax liability of up to £400 a year from April 2016, just when many were expecting their tax bill for their company car to reduce.”last_img read more

Retired Miami Police Chief dies after battle with cancer

first_imgMIAMI (WSVN) – Retired Miami Police Chief John Timoney has been pronounced dead, police said, after a battle with cancer.The 68-year-old police chief had his body escorted by officers from the University of Miami’s Hospital, late Tuesday night, after he lost his battle with lung cancer.Timoney had a reputation among other officers as being a “cops’ cop.” “I’ve been here seven years and had a fantastic time and had fantastic results,” said Timoney in an interview with 7News shortly after his forced departure from Miami Police, in 2009.Timoney led the Miami Police Department from 2003 to 2010. He was raised in New York, where he rose through the ranks of that city’s police department.The former police chief landed positions in Philadelphia before he moved to Miami, when former mayor Manny Diaz hired Timoney in 2003. This was a time where protests were taking place during the Free Trade of the Americas summit.“There have been lots of successes, significant success, in a whole variety of areas: crime, police shootings, race relations,” said Timoney, “but it is the failures or the mistakes you remember that hurt the most.”Timoney went on to write a book, “Beat Cop to Top Cop: A Tale of Three Cities,” which told the story of his life and policing. On the day he took over Miami PD, 11 Miami Police officers were on trial after being accused of corruption and excessive force. He later introduced Tasers for his officers in hopes of reducing the number of officer-involved shootings.Timoney was known to hit the streets of Miami by bike. “This is my bike!” said Timoney.The 68-year-old rode to help in the search for a rapist linked to seven assaults.Despite growing up in New York and rising through the ranks in Philadelphia, Timoney always said Miami had a special place in his heart. “I love living in Miami,” he said. “It’s the best kept secret in the world, I think.”Miami Mayor Tomas Regalado said the former chief will leave behind a legacy of community policing. “He gave the police department a national prominence, an international prominence,” said Regalado. “He lifted the police department in the City of Miami.”Funeral arrangements are as follows:Viewing:Vior Funeral Home291 NW 37th Ave.MiamiThursday, 3-10 p.m.Vior’s Facebook page Funeral:St. Patrick’s Catholic Church3716 Garden Ave.Miami BeachFriday, 11 a.m.www.stpatrickmiamibeach.comCopyright 2019 Sunbeam Television Corp.

first_imgI wanted 400 boxes today for #PRCareLift. I thought it was a stretch goal. We CRUSHED it; 450 done in ~3 hours! Amazing volunteers. https://t.co/6Qh8WT8Bqd— Seth Miller (@WandrMe) October 15, 2017Seth Miller with Operation Puerto Rico said the people of the island urgently need these goods. “The support for Puerto Rico from the government, from other organizations, has just not been enough, and we’re concerned that it’s not getting out to the people directly on the island,” he said. “We’ve got friends and family down there. We have a distribution network on the island, and we’re leveraging that. We know exactly what they need.”Organizers said Spirit Airlines is helping them fly the goods to the island.

Photographer defends A Christmas Story themed photo of newborn with fake BB

(WSVN) – A newborn’s photoshoot inspired by “A Christmas Story” is igniting debate online because the baby is posed with a fake gun.Coffee Creek Studio in Indiana shared the picture on Facebook, showing the sleeping infant wearing the famous pink bunny suit from the 1983 holiday movie — complete with a miniature BB gun in his arms.“Only 49 days until Christmas!! Ralphie loved his pink bunny suit I had made for him!” photographer Amy Haehl wrote in the caption. “Disclaimer – the BB gun is made of wood to ensure that he did NOT shoot his eye out during the creation of this photo.”Despite her disclaimer, some on social media found the photo in poor taste.“Unfollowing and unliking you. Extremely distasteful,” one user wrote in a now-deleted comment. “Guns are never ‘cute’, not even as a prop or movie reference. Disgusting. The gun culture in this country is a disgrace.”Others, however, found the photo endearing, and encouraged Haehl to ignore the detractors. last_img read more

Governor Walker Rejects Legislative Request To Secure Net Neutrality For Alaskans

first_imgFacebook0TwitterEmailPrintFriendly分享Governor Bill Walker told Alaska lawmakers that he would not issue an executive order to implement net neutrality rules for Alaska. Last February, a bipartisan group of 23 legislators, sent Governor Walker a letter urging exercise of his constitutional authority to issue an executive order requiring the state’s governmental departments to contract only with internet service providers (ISPs) who abide by the principles of net neutrality. In December, the Federal Communications Commission voted to undo net neutrality rules that guaranteed equal access to the internet. In the letter sent from Gov. Walker in response to the legislators request, “Like you, I have been concerned with the actions taken by the Federal Communication Commission regarding the repeal of net neutrality,” Walker said. “However, after looking at the legal hurdles the State faces by being in conflict with a program that very likely federally preempts states’ laws, and considering circumstances that already exist within Alaska, I am taking some alternative steps to address this issue.”center_img A net neutrality requirement in Alaska would prevent providers from making decisions about what kinds of information customers can access. Without net neutrality, internet service providers may legally speed up websites, slow them down, block them, or even require users to pay more for access to specific websites.last_img read more

Officials Say LNG Projects Steel Pipeline Could Withstand Cook Inlets Currents

first_img“The analysis indicates that the installed pipeline would be stable and not subject to lateral movement,” AGDC said. The state team added that stability designs would be “further evaluated … when updated geotechnical information is available.” The analysis showed that any hits by boulders of the size modeled “can be easily absorbed by the pipeline steel alone,” AGDC told FERC. For additional protection, the 1.25-inch-thick steel pipe would be coated with 3.5 inches of concrete before the lengths are welded together and lowered to the seafloor. The pipe in Cook Inlet would be substantially heavier than the pipe along the rest of the 807-mile route from Prudhoe Bay to Nikiski, most of which would range between 0.677 and 0.862 inches thick. The water-crossing information is among the remaining batches of answers the AGDC owes to the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC), which is expected to publish its draft environmental impact statement this month. “The strong tidal currents of Cook Inlet could potentially move debris and boulders across the pipeline,” AGDC reported in a May 24 filing with FERC. The project team analyzed what would happen if boulders as large as 10 tonnes (22,000 pounds) fell on the 42-inch-diameter pipeline, which would be laid — not buried — on the seabed floor. The analysis also looked at the risk of 15-tonne boulders “traveling at the maximum identified Cook Inlet bottom current velocity of 4.8 knots.” BP, and ExxonMobil announced at the end of May their intent to invest $20 million to advance the state’s $43 billion Alaska gas line project.

Regional Markets Remain Strong for Magazines

first_imgGreater Lafayette Business JournalLafayette, LaMarch Monthly New HeightsTampa, Fla.JanuaryBi-monthly Virginia Wine LoverVirginiaMayQuarterly TitleRegionLaunchedFrequency ThicketAlabamaSpringBi-monthly New WestWestern MountainJanuaryQuarterlycenter_img While regional magazines may not be recession-proof, a number of new publishers in the market are optimistic that regionals are in a better cycle than their national counterparts. “If you have a strong product that people want and need then you can get through the economic cycles,” says Jonathan Weber, publisher and CEO of New West Publishing. After developing NewWest.net in 2005, Weber in February launched New West magazine, a quarterly shelter and living title covering the mountain regions of Colorado, Idaho, Montana, Utah, Wyoming, Washington and Oregon.“We’re starting out fairly small, with the first issue at a circulation of 25,000, but we have a good circ strategy which we’re confident will get the magazine into the right hands,” Weber says. Of the 68 pages in the launch issue, Weber has 35 advertisers over about 20 ad pages.Regional M&A Remains Strong, TooDespite the overall economic downturn, the market has seemingly valued regional magazines well, illustrated in part by a number of significant regional acquisitions over the last several months.In May 2007, Modern Luxury magazine sold to Clarity Partners for an estimated $250 million. In February, Niche Media purchased DLG Media Holdings, publisher of lifestyle and fashion magazine Philadelphia Style, and online publications DC Style and ACConfidential.com. Niche Media finalized an agreement last fall that effectively unified its operations with controlled circulation publishers Greenspun Media Group and the Ocean Drive Media Group.“These are good examples of the strength of the regional market and the range of buyers out there,” Mac Leod says.Mac Leod expects to see a number of regional titles, especially those whose markets have been impacted by the declining housing market, go to market next year. “There will be a few large deals coming out, and we anticipate that it will be a frothy market in the second half of the year,” Mc Leod says. “Also look to see even more buyers from the newspaper sector active in the regional magazine market—both acquiring and divesting depending on their own business needs.”Some recent regional launches: Business New EnglandNew EnglandSpringBi-monthly While much of the publishing industry grits its teeth in anticipation of a recession and established publishers reign in their print launches, the city and regional market remains hot, thanks to a low barrier to entry and a continued demand for print. The first quarter of 2008 alone has seen a flurry of regional magazine launches.“We feel like our situation is unique in that Alabama is overdue for a smart, articulate lifestyle magazine,” says Lee Hurley, managing director and co-publisher of Thicket magazine, a bi-monthly statewide lifestyle title with an initial circulation of 30,000, that debuted in January. Thicket’s April issue has 80 pages—13 of which are ad pages.“We believe the major advertisers in this market realize the need for a vehicle that promotes the state in a sophisticated manner,” says Hurley. “We have miles to go in the revenue area but we are on the road. Our plan is for steady rather than meteoric growth.”Over the last few years, regionals have trended toward vertical launches—business journals, home/design magazines, luxury titles—that have a more narrow audience and cover smaller geographic regions. “Regionals are going through and will continue to go through their own normal consolidation, albeit for different reasons than national titles,” says Kim Mac Leod, president of Regional Media Advisors, an M&A advisory company for the regional market.

Euro Paper Supplier Says There is Definite Need to Increase Prices

first_imgEuropean paper supplier M-Real reported today that first half 2008 operating results, including non-recurring items, were $119.1 million, down about 7 percent over the same period in 2007. Operating results excluding non-recurring items were about -$28.6 million, down from $28.6 million last year.Sales for the half reached about $3.4 billion, down from about $3.6 billion last year. First half EBITDA, including non-recurring items, was about $362.3 million, down from about $409.9 million last year.”We have found new profit improvements mainly through simplifying business concepts, which made it possible to raise the target of the profit improvement program in May,” M-Real CEO Mikko Helander said in a statement. “We will still launch new profit improvement actions later in the year to cover as much of the heavy cost inflation as possible.”Earlier this year, M-Real announced price increases for its magazine papers in the American and European markets. The price for its U.K. coated magazine papers increased by $80 per ton and $3 per 100 pounds—or about $60 per ton—in the U.S. The company attributed the increases to improving profitability in its magazine segment, which has faced pressures from increasing cost and strong market demand. “There is a definite need to increase the prices for all paper and paperboard products, and we will do everything we can to achieve the necessary increases,” Helander said.last_img read more

CEO Perspectives

first_imgThe end of a year always brings with it a host of new initiatives for the coming one. The year 2013 was a time that many publishers put renewed focus on digital and events, building out alternative revenue streams as print, for the most part, remained flat to down. And as we enter 2014, publishers have a new slate of priorities to focus on, including video, mobile and community development. Technology—particularly with content production—was also a big focus, but one executive featured here is about as bullish on print as you can get. Either way, 2014 is looking like a year where publishers are focusing on building audience and devising ways, whether through content formats or technology, to expand brand appeal.Daniel BroganPresident and Editor-in-Chief | 5280 Publishing, Inc.Ivy Baer ShermanEditor-in-Chief, President and CEO | Vintage MagazineLou Ann SabatierCEO | MediaDC Doug ManoniCEO | SourceMediaScott McCaffertyCo-Founder, Managing Partner | WTWH Media, LLCCindy JeffersCEO, CTO | Salon Media GroupElisabeth DeMarseChairman, President and CEO | TheStreet, Inc.Sarah WilkePublisher | The Upper Room Michael BiggerstaffCEO | Nxtbook Media [Sponsored Content]Malcolm NetburnChairman and CEO | CDS Global [Sponsored Content]Michael P.

What Content Marketing Means to Traditional Media and Traditional Journalists

first_imgWhen I started out in journalism—in daily newspapers—every so often you’d have a colleague opt out of the reporter’s life and move into PR instead. It always seemed like a loss, because some of those colleagues were the most capable among us. But journalism’s loss was PR’s gain. Today, in 2013, that’s perhaps more true than ever, because of the disruption of the traditional media world. Let’s be honest with what’s happening: The newspaper industry—the industry dedicated to putting news on a paper product, which is printed and distributed every morning—is dying. It will be gone in a generation or less. The magazine industry is less challenged than newspapers, but the trend is clear. Think about what’s happened: • It’s not just that new technologies have massively changed media-consumption patterns and expectations. • It’s not just that the Internet has destroyed many forms of revenue-producing classified advertising, which once was a staple of newspaper businesses. • It’s not just that it’s become an extraordinary challenge to invest resources in highly qualified journalists to produce news, when that news is then redistributed online for free within minutes. How do you make money in that environment? • It’s not just that newspapers have become an inefficient and outdated vehicle for local advertising. Local ad revenue is soaring, but it’s online, and going to contextual and ROI-oriented technology companies like Facebook and Google.  • And it’s not just that paid reader circulation—an essential part of the revenue model for newspapers and magazines—is unpredictable, at best, online.It’s all those things, combined. And the pace of change is accelerating. One outcome has been a wave of downsizings in the newspaper and magazine worlds, with some journalists moving into PR. And ironically, what many of them are doing now is—wait for it—creating journalism! They’re just doing it for all different kinds of brands, not just media brands. They’re serving brand communities, not geographic or industry-specific communities.As media has changed, so has marketing and communications. The most significant change currently in brand marketing is content marketing, where brands engage audiences through traditional journalism techniques—they tell interesting and relevant stories that engage readers. This storytelling doesn’t work if it’s product pitching in disguise. It’s more sophisticated than that. And usually, it’s the PR staff that handles content marketing.Is content marketing a threat to journalism? No. No more so than the bottom-feeder media companies that for 100 years neglected journalism and viewed content as “the space between the ads.”What is happening is this: As marketers increasingly engage in content marketing—online, on social media, in video—they become a new source of competition for traditional media companies. And they also provide a new source of employment for those professional journalists who’ve found that career opportunities, good incomes and professional growth are no longer as plentiful in traditional media. Maybe those folks who went into PR when I was starting out were just a bit ahead of the trend line.last_img read more

Informa Purchases WWETT Show from Cole Publishing

first_img A request for terms of the transaction was declined, but Cole president Jeff Bruss confirmed to Folio: that the show—the only live event produced by Cole—accounted for about one-third of total company revenue. “We will continue to invest in the event in a big way,” said Rick McConnell, president of Informa Exhibitions U.S., in a statement. “We at Informa look forward to continuing the legacy that Bob and his team have built over the past 36 years.” “We’ve made significant investments in software, from trade show registration and lead retrieval services to CMS systems for publishers,” Bruss adds. “A strong seller’s market, combined with [Cole owner Bob Kendall’s] desire to downsize, were the primary reasons for the sale,” Bruss tells Folio:. “The show needed a company that could take WWETT to the next level, and Informa made a proposal that matched our needs.” “Cole will continue to maintain its print publishing roots,” Bruss tells Folio:, “but will definitely be looking to expand into cloud-based software services, among other endeavors.” Held each February in Indianapolis, WWETT attracts more than 600 exhibitors and 14,000 attendees from 53 countries, according to Cole. center_img For Informa, WWETT is only the latest in series of North American additions to the UK-based information firm’s exhibitions division over the last two years. Last October, Informa purchased the Florida International Medical Expo (FIME). That move followed similar acquisitions of Dwell Media’s flagship event, Dwell on Design, and Hanley Wood’s exhibition business—a November, 2014 transaction worth $375 million. Informa has made yet another U.S. trade show acquisition, purchasing the Water & Wastewater Equipment, Treatment & Transport Show (WWETT) from Wisconsin-based Cole Publishing, both parties announced this week. Some of those technological investments are in trade show services, offerings for which WWETT served as an effective testing ground over the last several years. Despite the sale, Cole—which publishes nine titles in various water and wastewater-related spaces—will remain involved with WWETT in marketing and show branding for at least 10 years, Bruss tells Folio:, and even though the company no longer owns the significant revenue source, it isn’t shying away from diversification.last_img read more

Mississippi Lawmakers Approve Limited Funding for Project Supporting Columbus AFB

first_imgThe Mississippi Legislature has approved a bond bill allowing the state to borrow $2.25 million to fund the extension of a recreational path from the city of Columbus to Columbus Air Force Base, enough to start the project but well short of the $25 million measure House lawmakers passed in February.“I had high hopes,” state Rep. Jeff Smith (R) told the Columbus Dispatch. “In the back of my mind, I was always worried we’d get nothing. The main thing we were able to get was the House and Senate to understand we would be back every year [asking for more funding]. We knew all along it would be a multi-year project, and we will be coming back next year,” he said.The Riverwalk project is an effort by area lawmakers to better connect the installation with the surrounding community and to bolster quality of life for personnel and their families at the base. Local leaders believe enhancing the quality of life is critical for the air base to survive a future BRAC round. The project calls for an existing path — which includes separate tracks for walking, jogging and biking — to be extended by 14 miles. The base is about 10 miles north of the city.The $2.25 million bond appropriation would cover design and engineering costs for the project, as well as initial work on building a 1,000-seat amphitheater across the Tombigbee River from the Riverwalk. “The fact that we got $2.25 million this year means we’ll probably get $6 million or $7 million next year,” Smith said. “It would have been good to get extra funds, but honestly, we wouldn’t have been able to spend all $5 million in 12 months.” The House version recommended spending $5 million annually for five years. While the bond appropriation falls short of guaranteeing the project will be completed, Columbus Mayor Robert Smith said he’s pleased the city will receive $2.25 million. “That’s the chance you take,” Smith told the Dispatch. “Personally, I’m humble and thankful to receive what we did. Hats off to our representative for fighting to the end and to our [local] delegation in the Legislature who supported it,” he said. Dan Cohen AUTHORlast_img read more

Wilmingtons LaChance To Run Boston Marathon In Support Of Mass General Hospital

first_imgWILMINGTON, MA — Christina LaChance, of Wilmington, will run in the 123rd Boston Marathon on April 15 in support of the MassGeneral Hospital for Children Pediatric Cancer Team.LaChance will join an estimated 30,000 runners along the 26.2-mile course from Hopkinton to Boston. The money raised by LaChance and her team will support pioneering research, clinical initiatives and quality of life services including art and music therapy at MGHfC, helping pediatric cancer patients cope emotionally and developmentally with their illnesses.Thanks to a partnership with John Hancock, the “Fighting Kids’ Cancer… One Step at a Time” team is targeting a goal of more than $1 million this year. Participants include former patients and their family members, MGH employees and longtime program supporters. Since 1998, the team has raised more than $14.2 million for care and research.“So many of us are touched by cancer in some way, but you don’t have to be a caregiver at the bedside to leave an imprint on a child undergoing cancer treatment,” says Howard Weinstein, chief of pediatric hematology-oncology at MGHfC and 22-year captain of the pediatric team. “Every year, we see runners step up and become our partners in fighting childhood cancer.
