New Surveys Say Publishers Expect Mobile To Pay Off Big Within Two

first_imgTwo new publishing surveys predict rapid revenue growth for mobile apps in the next few years, although one shows most publishers rejecting the switch to an all-digital format. In the second annual “Going Mobile” survey from the Audit Bureau of Circulations and ABC Interactive, 65 percent of respondents say they believe digital delivery is important to their strategic future, up from 55 percent last year. Thirty-seven percent say they expect mobile to significantly impact their revenue in just two years. However, 78 percent of respondents disagreed that their publications would be delivered in digital-only format within the next five years. While Apple is listed as the number one e-reader manufacturer in the ABC survey, just 19 percent of respondents say they are satisfied with Apple’s app business model, while 11 percent say they are satisfied with the analytics and subscriber information they receive from Apple. Meanwhile, a report from mobile ad network Millennial Media, e-media conference producer DIGIDAY and financial services company Stifel Nicolaus, found that 31 percent of publishers surveyed expect their applications to increase 100 percent or more in 2011, with another 17 percent expecting an increase of 50 percent or more. (The Millennial Media report also says that just 6.7 percent of developers use an internal sales force to monetize their applications, while 83 percent use a third party, such as an ad network.)last_img read more

Nonsubsidised LPG gas cylinders to cost Rs 100 less

first_imgNon-subsidised LPG gas cylinders will be available for Rs 637 per cylinder instead of Rs. 737.50.ReutersIn a major relief to households across the nation, the Indian Oil Corporation (IOC) has declared that the price of non-subsidised cooking gas cylinders (LPG) will be cheaper by Rs 100.50 per cylinder from Monday, July 1. With this, the non-subsidised LPG gas cylinder will be available for Rs 637 instead of Rs. 737.50.The decision to cut rates was taken in view of softening LPG prices in the international market and a favourable dollar-rupee exchange rate, according to a press release by IOC. “Price of Non-Subsidised LPG in Delhi will decrease by Rs 100.50 per cylinder from 1st July. Upfront cash payment by consumer of domestic LPG will reduce by Rs 100.50 per cylinder,” said IOC in a statement.Indian Oil Corporation: As domestic LPG prices are subsidized by the Government, the effective price after subsidy to consumer will be Rs 494.35 per cylinder for the month of July 2019. https://t.co/2YQs6da0Jw— ANI (@ANI) June 30, 2019The release further stated: “As domestic LPG prices are subsidised by the government, the effective price has come down to Rs 494.35 per cylinder with this rate revision. The balance amount of Rs 142.65 per cylinder would be borne as subsidy by the central government and transferred to the consumer’s bank account after the purchase of a refill.”The recent development, which has been welcomed by the households using LPG gas cylinders, comes days ahead of the Union Budget on July 5. The budget for the financial year ending March 2020 will be presented by Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman. This is also the first budget of the Narendra Modi government after BJP came back to power in a landslide election win.However, LPG saw a price hike of 3.65 percent with effect from June 1 and the recent cut comes exactly after a month. Indian Oil said that amounted to an increase of Rs 25 per cylinder as compared to the last month. In any case, depending on changes in the average international benchmark LPG prices and foreign exchange rates, the extent of the subsidy varies from month to month.last_img read more

New Exhibit Puts A Face On Hunger

first_img 00:00 /02:29 To embed this piece of audio in your site, please use this code: Michael NyeKathy, a subject in Michael Nye’s exhibit, “About Hunger and Resilience.”They all have different stories, but there’s one common thread: Pepper, Alejandro and Kathy have all gone hungry at some point during their lives.  “I know exactly what hunger is. It’s doing without.”“It’s like you have a lion in your stomach that wants to be fed.”“It destroys your will. You look in the mirror and you don’t know who you are.”They’re three of 42 people who are the subjects of a new exhibit at the Health Museum. Over the course of four years, artist Michael Nye spent two to three days with each person, recording their stories.  “Stories may not feed people,” Nye says. “But they shine a light, I think. And they can do something.”In the exhibit, visitors can listen to excerpts of the conversations through a pair of headphones while looking at Nye’s black and white portraits of the people he interviewed. Most of their facial expressions are austere, even solemn.– / 6For Brian Greene, the show hits close to home. He works to help hungry people on a daily basis as president of the Houston Food Bank.“You see the exhibit and these are real people,” Greene says. “And they’re good people. They have a story. You get that message when you actually see their faces, you see their eyes, and you hear their stories in their own words.”The opening of the exhibit is timely. Summertime is “Hunger Season” because the hunger rate goes up dramatically for children.“During the school year, so many of the low income children are participating in the school lunch and breakfast program,” Greene explains. “Only a tiny fraction are participating in any summer food service program.”Based on Census Bureau figures, Greene says about 66,000 people in Greater Houston suffer from hunger. About 5,000 are children.The show also proves there are misconceptions about who’s hungry. It’s not always the guy on the side of the street holding a sign. The subjects range from young adults to senior citizens and many do have homes.  Green says he encountered many elderly people who’d fallen on hard times.“They couldn’t keep it together, their Social Security wasn’t enough,” he says. “I found a lot of people losing their jobs, living paycheck to paycheck.”He calls his work About Hunger and Resilience. It’s on display at the Health Museum through August 31st. X Listen Sharelast_img read more

Eating fried food may stop your brain from controlling your diet

first_imgIf you are looking for ways to reduce that ever-burgeoning waistline, stay clear of foods rich in saturated fat found in butter, cheese or fried foods as these can make your brain struggle to control what you eat, says a study.The findings showed that consuming fatty food affects the hypothalamus a part of the brain that helps regulate hunger.Simply put, people struggle to control how much they eat, when to stop and what type of food to eat symptoms seen in obesity. ‘Although the effects of high fat diet on metabolism have been widely studied, little is known about the effects on the brain,’ said a researcher. On the other hand, consuming foods rich in unsaturated fats such as fish, avocado or olive oil makes a significant difference, the researchers said.  Also Read – ‘Playing Jojo was emotionally exhausting’The study shows that brain function remains normal and manages to restrain from eating more than necessary.‘The difference was very clear and we were amazed to establish the impact of a fatty diet onto the brain,’ Crispino explained. ‘Our results suggest that being more aware about the type of fat consumed with the diet may reduce the risk of obesity and prevent several metabolic diseases’, the researcher concluded.last_img read more
