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

Diversified Business Communications Buys Electronic Health Record Provider

first_imgPortland, Maine-based b-to-b media company Diversified Business Communications has acquired Amazing Charts, a provider of electronic health records. The deal is intended to expand Diversified’s Pri-Med division and its medical education business. Amazing Charts was founded in 2001 and says it provides electronic health records for 5,600 practices with 70 practices added every month. Terms of the deal were not released. The plan is to make Amazing Charts an independent operating subsidiary of Pri-Med, but supplement it with Pri-Med’s educational conference reach into more than 40 markets—potentially expanding Amazing Chart’s visibility with prospective practices. For Diversified, the addition of electronic health records is another asset that can be used in Pri-Med’s educational setting—primarily as a way of extending Pri-Med educational content and services to point-of-care, in-practice settings. “The holy grail of medical education is to demonstrate improved patient outcomes as a result of access to unbiased evidence-based CME,” says John Mooney,  founder and CEO of Pri-Med. “We believe that in addition to our live meetings and online CME courses, providing this education at the point of care is the obvious next step, and we are excited to develop this with Amazing Charts. With this deeply integrated partnership, we are together reimagining the EHR as a real-time educational instrumemnt that expands well beyond managing one’s practice.””Diversified is really good at executing events, and this is an opportunity to extend our reach,” says a Diversified spokesperson. “There’s a finite number of primary care physicians and this gives us an opportunity to get directly in front of doctors. What’s critical too is understanding the benefit of education—are the doctors getting what they need and are they able to improve their patients’ health based on the information they learn from Pri-Med? Having Amazing Charts will help us understand that.” Diversified acquired Pri-Med in late 2011 from MC Holdings. Pri-Med consists of about 50 annul educational conferences and digital properties. Mooney had founded Pri-Med in 1994, sold it to Bain Capital in 2004 and later started the CollaborativeCARE conference, which was suspended before Mooney re-joined Diversified to return as Pri-Med’s CEO. In a video describing how the partnership came together, Amazing Charts founder Dr. Jon Bertman, who will continue to serve as president, says “I’ve been looking for a year for a partner who would be able to go with my requirements, which were to leave the company alone, but at the same time would provide resources and a skill level in areas that we don’t have, like marketing, like the infrastructure logistics of running a company.”last_img read more

Former DCPS Teacher on Layoffs Its Criminal

first_imgBy Aya Elamroussi, Special to the AFROWhen D.C. Public Schools fired third-grade teacher Jeff Canady in 2009, he couldn’t leave the District and look for a job elsewhere. Both his parents were sick and needed his help. He slept in a car for two years.“My living situation has been very difficult. Extremely difficult,” Canady told the AFRO. He was fired in 2009 after an evaluation deemed him ineffective. Canady disputed his termination, arguing that he was wrongly fired and that the city was retaliating against him for being a union activist and for criticizing the school system.D.C. teachers protesting (Courtesy Photo).Nine years later- earlier this month- an arbitrator ruled in favor of Canady, a ruling that could entitle him to hundreds of thousands of dollars in back pay and the opportunity to be a District teacher again, The Washington Post reported.DCPS can appeal the ruling, which was made by the American Arbitration Association, a third-party nonprofit organization that settles disputes outside of court.“You never know what the district will do… They may continue to retaliate and break the law. That’s their choice,” Canady said.DCPS Press Secretary told the AFRO in an email that they have been notified of the arbitrator’s decision and is in the process of reviewing it.Canady was among nearly 1,000 other teachers fired during Michelle Rhee’s 3.5-year tenure as D.C. schools chancellor back in 2010. Rhee’s approach to education reform in the nation’s capital drew much scrutiny because she instituted a teacher evaluation system that dictated teachers’ job security and bonuses, The Post reported.Even though Rhee’s system was implemented after Canady was fired, he scored low on the evaluation. Both he and the teachers’ union argued that his third-graders performed well and that he had achieved high scores on his evaluations, The Post reported.“I’m one of the best teachers in the city,” Canady told the AFRO. “Probably the country.”The Post wrote that there has been suspicion his evaluation was connected to his public criticism of the school system and not to his performance in the classroom.He said that he spoke up about the lack of internet service where he was teaching and questioned the chancellor’s process of contract signing at the time.Canady added that the city did not follow proper protocol when evaluating him. And when he was fired, DCPS didn’t follow the proper procedure.“They refused to give me a due process hearing,” he added.He argued that under Rhee’s term, there was a major plunge in the number of Black teachers in DCPS.“It’s been a long history of retaliation.”Canady holds a bachelor’s degree in social work, a master’s in both early childhood education and public administration.A lifelong D.C. resident, he attended Ballou High School and McKinley Technology High School.last_img read more

Chicago Installs Solar Powered Charging Station for Electric Vehicles

first_img Tucson closer to having network of electric-car chargers Is Chicago leading the way for solar-powered EV charging stations? When you think of advances in making electric vehicles easier to use, you do not normally think of Chicago. San Francisco or Portland often come to mine. Both cities are working to install EV charging stations throughout the city in order to make “filling up” with electricity almost as convenient as filling up with gasoline. But Chicago has gone one better. Not only will Chicago provide EV charging stations, but the city will do so using renewable energy. Solar power will be used to provide electricity, negating the need for fossil fuels altogether if you drive an electric vehicle in the Windy City.There is a tree-like canopy that holds the solar panels. These panels collect the sun’s light and facilitates the transformation into electric energy. Storage of the electricity is underground. The station was built by Carbon Day Automotive. The company hopes that other cities will follow suit, allowing them to build solar-powered EV charging stations for other American cities.For now, the City of Chicago is likely to be the biggest user of the EV station. The city has a fleet of electric cars, and the charging station will be used daily to make sure that the cars have the electricity that they need. It’s a great idea, and proof that innovation and technology can move us into a more sustainable future — one that doesn’t require fossil fuels to keep us going.© 2009 PhysOrg.com This document is subject to copyright.

(PhysOrg.com) — One of the biggest arguments that some have made against plug-in electric vehicles is that they still promote the use of fossil fuels. When you have to plug in a car for a charge, the electricity used to charge the battery often comes from a power plant that gets its energy from oil. Chicago is hoping to change that as it becomes the first city to install an electric vehicle (EV) charging station powered with solar energy.
