A nearby good samaritan rode his boat out to the downed plane to assist the pilot. The Alaska State Troopers also responded to the scene, and it was confirmed that there was only one occupant onboard the plane at the time of the crash. According to Browning the plane was a Maule MX-7. The investigation into the cause of the crash has now been handed over to the troopers. The initial call to CES was that a plane had overturned upon landing in Mackey Lake. Browning: “Upon arrival by CES crews the pilot was able to get out of the plane with the assistance of local residents as they responded by kayak and were able to get him to shore to our ambulance crews.” last_img read more

Understanding Link Journalism

first_img“Link journalism,” a term coined by Scott Karp, formerly director of digital strategy at Atlantic Media and founder of journalist social network Publish2, refers to sharing and picking up links from other media outlets and bloggers in order to fully cover the story.It’s the antithesis of the traditional media approach, in which a media outlet was expected to offer its own version of a story (even if that version provides little else from stories already out there). On the Web, however, content ownership is a much looser idea. Publishers are starting to grasp that “every page is a home page,” because readers aren’t necessarily coming through the front door but more often directly to stories from search and social networks. But publishers also need to be flexible in recognizing the content they feature on their site needn’t be just their own. The reader doesn’t care where they get the information—as long as they get it. Services like Yellowbrix (used by Foliomag.com) pull stories for a designated topic right to your site (with attribution to the original source). Even the stalwarts of traditional media have embraced link journalism: The New York Times is launching an alternative site featuring stories from competitors while The Washington Post just launched a page called Political Browser that pulls together political stories, video, facts, statistics and photos from around the Web. Smaller Publishers Can be a One-Stop Shop Publish2 is a social network that enables journalists to build their own profile and share their work. The site, which soft launched over the summer, also gives journalists at smaller organizations the means to practice link journalism without dedicating existing staff to finding stories or having to pay fees to an aggregator to do it for them. “One of the barriers to smaller publishers is the infrastructure to do this—how do we get this into the CMS? How do we get people to have time to do this?” says Karp. “The key to what we’re doing is to make linking really easy for journalists to do. This is a way for publishers to incorporate links into what they do in way that’s easy and scaleable.”The core of the system is book-marking, which is familiar technology to even the most Luddite editor. “We’ve tried to make this really simple on the front end,” says Karp. “This is one way they can contribute that’s low friction.” Users choose a standard tag from the drop down menu and under “Common Tags” and write a description of what they’re linking to. This appears in the same window as the article, making it easy to reference. Readers can comment as well. “We want to get journalists link-blogging, which has been around for a long time,” says Karp. “The idea is not just a selection of links but comments on why this is important, why we recommend you read this.”  Publish2 tries to balance the public and private features of this system. Journalists can work in a private sphere where notes will only appear to the user. Check boxes include MyLinkJournalism, MyResearch,  and MyClips. MyLinks serves as the user’s main link page. “The idea is journalists can start building their brands as a filter for their Web,” says Karp. Different Than Other Social SitesPublish2 offers a feature called MyNewsgroups, which Karp says editors can design as an edit system. “This is one point of departure from a consumer application like del.icio.us,” he says. “When we were working with a lot of newsrooms, they said ‘we want multiple contributors adding links. But we want to have full edit control—editing comments, fixing headlines, deleting off-topic posts.’ That’s what the newsgroup is designed for.” Users can create a newsgroup for their market with headlines chosen by staff editors, who can also invite other contributors and editors to join. Editors can also implement a standardized way to present headlines. With MyNewsgroups, every page has an RSS feed from which users can directly publish. Every page also features a widget creator. “The idea here is to create a CMS for links as a way to manage this process on the back-end,” says Karp. “We can have a lot of people contribute with an easy way to manage it. It can also be customized to look exactly like your site.” Early AdoptersMichelle Leder is an award-winning financial journalist and author of the site Footnoted.com, which exposes items that companies bury in their routine SEC filings, and an early member of Publish2. “In my sidebar I link to stories that I think will be of interest to my readers, who tend to be hedge fund/money managers, given the specific nature of my content,” she says. “Unlike a lot of other blogs, I do new reporting based on stuff in the filings, so I don’t spend a lot of time commenting on stories in the WSJ, Times, etc. The Publish2 widget gives me an opportunity to easily link to these stories.”Vewd.org is a site that attempts to connect photographers with high-end magazines.  “This is great tool for me to use to connect readers with others doing same thing I am,” says CEO Matt Blalock. “It’s a great way for me to link to another story. We were linking to a lot of content elsewhere but there’s only so much you can say about another article. This was perfect.” Vewd has linked to sites such as National Geographic and the National Press Photographers Association. Blalock dismisses concerns over links sending the audience away. “They’re going to go away if you’re not offering what they need,” he adds. “In our space, there may be 20 different media outlets pretty much saying the same thing. We need to be the source where they find out about everything, even if we’re not writing about it. That’s link journalism.”last_img read more

Ad Portals Make Gains Among Publishers

first_img$1,000-$4,99916% Less than $25010% REVENUESAVINGS $50,000-$99,9993% $500-$9997% $250-$4992% $100,000-$199,9990% Smaller publishers are adopting ad portals, too, including regional publisher Connecticut Cottages and Gardens. “I think ad portals are going to become big business,” art and production director Matthew Hageman told FOLIO: recently. “They save so much time and aggravation. We’ve logged more hours than we can count troubleshooting files for people.“I think it can even deter smaller advertisers who can’t afford an agency from advertising at all,” Hageman added. “The idea that an advertiser can drop a file on a Web site, have it preflighted in seconds, and upon approval be placed into the printer’s workflow, is phenomenal.”Estimated Annual Savings by Using an Ad Portal System The percentage of magazine publishers using ad portals—Internet-based processing and delivery systems that streamline the online submission of ad files from advertisers and agencies to publishers and printers—grew just one percentage point to 22 percent in 2008, according to FOLIO:’s 2008 Manufacturing and Production Trend Survey. But there is evidence that ad portals are gaining favor among both larger and smaller publishers. Quad Graphics this week said Condé Nast adopted its AdShuttle technology to support the publisher’s online ad portal, Condé Nast Transmit, which launched last fall. Approximately 60 percent of Condé Nast’s advertisers and agencies are now using Transmit. Submitted files are available to Condé Nast as a jpeg image in Publishers Studio, a management system that features AdSync and Impoze. Jpegs can then be dropped into the electronic magazine layout. Quad Graphics says Publishers Studio goes beyond basic ad portals to incorporate advertising, editorial and advanced versioning functionality into one real-time operating tool. According to David Orlin, senior vice president, operations and strategic sourcing, Transmit “has enabled us to streamline the process of receiving and handling ad materials from our advertisers and to develop one unified workflow for all Condé Nast magazines.” More than $500,0002% $10,000-$19,99914% $200,000-$499,9999% $5,000-$9,99910% $20,000-$49,99910% SOURCE: 2008 FOLIO: Manufacturing and Production Trends Surveylast_img read more

Late to Augmented Reality Party Esquire Delivers Solid 3D Package

first_imgBut while Esquire was first (or near first) with its other “innovations,” it’s late in delivering augmented reality in magazines. In June, Bonnier’s Popular Science utilized augmented reality firm Metaio’s Web application software to create an interactive image (provided by General Electric) featuring wind turbines when readers held up the cover of its July issue to their computer cameras. Time Inc.’s InStyle magazine used augmented reality to make some advertisements in its December holiday gift guide issue three dimensional. Last month, publisher Future US also utilized the technology for the December issues of Official Xbox Magazine and Playstation: The Official Magazine featured an advertising campaign that generated an interactive 3-D war scene.Instead of kicking open the AR door for magazines, Esquire has simply contributed to a “rising trend.” Or has it? To be fair, I haven’t seen the magazine in my hands yet, but it looks like Esquire has in fact delivered a superior AR experience, compared to those we’ve already seen. Check out editor-in-chief David Granger’s video introduction to the issue below.Aside from who’s first and who’s not, perhaps the better question is whether utilizing AR is true “innovation” or all gimmick. What’s the real value for print magazines? In terms of innovation in the print medium, Hearst’s Esquire magazine has been a pioneer on a number of fronts in recent months. Last year, it partnered with Cambridge, Massachusetts-based E Ink to produce an electronic “paper” display for the magazine’s 75th anniversary October issue. Then in February, Esquire produced a cover “window” that opened to a mini table of contents and featured an advertisement on the back flap. Its May “How to Be a Man” issue featured perforated covers that act like a flip book, allowing readers to make 27 combinations of the facial features of Barack Obama, George Clooney and Justin Timberlake.Now, the magazine is tapping augmented reality technology to take innovation into the digital realm.  Throughout the December issue (which hits newsstands November 17) are coded markers that, when readers/users hold up to their computer’s Webcam, trigger interactive video “experiences” to appear on their screens. Four articles and the cover are equipped with the AR functionality. For example, when a user holds the cover to their Webcam, cover feature/actor Robert Downey Jr. appears on their screen, talks about the issue, sings and shows a clip of his upcoming film, Sherlock Holmes. Car maker Lexus is the issue’s exclusive advertiser for the AR technology, with an ad that’s AR-enabled.last_img read more

Social Media for Association Magazines QA with Tony Lee

first_img Folio: What are the various content options at SHRM? Not every type of content works well on Facebook. You want to select content that is very shareable, that people are very interested in — more of a social content that they’ll share with other folks. We also use the idea of snack-able content, meaning smaller pieces that are easily digestible, which tend to do really well on Facebook. For association media groups, an effective social media strategy can have a tremendous impact on both editorial and membership-acquisition strategies. One way to find out which social network and content style works best for members is to A/B test different posts ad infinitum. Alternately, one could trade secrets with association media peers at the Folio: Association Media Summit on March 28 in Washington, D.C. Lee: We have 289,000 members and for those folks we create a lot of different content. The most recognizable is HR Magazine, which is a printed glossy that goes to all members 10 times a year. And we have SHRM.org that has news and features. We probably publish seven or eight new articles every business day. In addition to that, we have HR Daily, which is a newsletter which goes out to 425,000 readers every day, with all new content every day. In addition to that, we have a half a dozen other newsletters that are weekly. It’s open, so anyone can sign up. Folio: What is one of your most successful posts? Folio: Do you have a unified social media team or multiple teams throughout the organization? The key on Facebook is that we measure usage by day and time. Some of the surprises are that we get more feedback when we’re posting on Saturday afternoon than Tuesday morning. Facebook has less traditional use so it’s nights and weekends and early mornings when things really take off. People are using it outside of the office more. We’ve seen research that says that more and more companies are blocking Facebook use. Folio: What role do you see your publications as having in the greater association? That did extremely well on Facebook. It was taking something that was important and interesting, and making it fun for people to see where they rank compared to those guys. We had a lot of views and a lot of comments. We have a very interactive crowd who are really into social media, so it’s rare for us to put something on social media and not get a lot of feedback and comments. Social media is a tool. It’s just another way to communicate. So those two things are true whether we’re doing it through social media or we’re doing it at one of our conferences. Those things are always important and drive our mission.center_img Lee: We did story on the guy who’s been nominated to be secretary of labor. He’s pretty controversial and there’s been a lot of questions about whether he’s qualified to do the job. So we actually did an article looking at the employee benefits that his companies provide to their employees, as well as what Trump’s companies provide to their employees. It was a pretty interesting article period, but we used Facebook to say, “Compare the benefits that you provide at your company to the benefits that the new secretary of labor [nominee] provides and that our new president provides.” Lee: The vast majority are on Facebook. The majority of the traffic we get back and the play we get and the shares and everything else is on Facebook significantly more than other sites. Lee: Number 1, to serve our member, and Number 2, to advance the HR profession — that’s our mission statement. Speaking on the session “Social Media Strategies that Increase Engagement and Drive Membership” is Tony Lee, VP of Editorial at the Society for Human Resource Management. We checked in with Lee to find out what social looks like at SHRM, which platforms are the biggest hit with his members, and how an association can turn current events into shareable content.  See the full program here, and register now for this can’t-miss association media event. Lee: We have multiple. We have one person in the organization who is responsible for social media association-wide, and who sets strategy and roles up their sleeves and gets involved. But the editorial team also does a great deal of social media ourselves. Different people within the organization have different needs. Social media is not one-size-fits-all, it has to be used strategically. If we publish an article about pending overtime rules, we’ll treat that different on social media than if we have a Nextchat with the author of one of our books.  Folio: What is SHRM’s social media strategy.

Editorial Director Mike Lafavore Out at Rodale People on the Move —

first_img Vox Media has named Nishat Kurwa its first executive producer for audio. Kurwa is a 15-year veteran of the radio industry; she served most recently as senior digital producer of Marketplace at American Public Media. Since his September 2015 induction, Rodale has undergone several major shakeups. President Scott Schulman’s contract was not renewed, just weeks after Lafavore took over some of his duties. In January, 40 staffers were let go. Since then, Rodale has hired a new CFO, and a new COO.  Meredith Corporation has named Jill Waage the new editor-in-chief of Traditional Home and Jennifer Darling as the new editor-in-chief of Allrecipes. Waage has held several roles at Better Homes & Gardens, including brand executive editor, editorial director of home content, and executive editor of special interest media. Prior to joining T in 2013, Haramis served as editorial director at Bullett Magazine. Nick Haramis, articles editor at T: The New York Times Styles Magazine, will take over as the new editor-in-chief of Interview. The position has been vacant since Keith Pollock left late last year to oversee digital at Architectural Digest.  Bethany Heitman has been named editor-in-chief of StyleWatch. She’s been serving as interim editor of the brand since late last year. Prior to that, she held senior roles at Seventeen and Cosmopolitan.  Lafavore took on the newly created role at Rodale in 2015 after a 15-year hiatus from the publisher. While he was responsibile for the entire magazine porfolio, Lafavore initially focused on Men’s Health, the magazine he edited for 12 years until 2000.  Mike Lafavore has left his role as editorial director at Rodale, Folio: has confirmed. All editors-in-chief at the publisher now report to CEO Maria Rodale. The company declined to comment further. “When I was approached by Interview, it sort of felt like a no-brainer,” Haramis tells WWD. “In addition to sort of being humbled to work at such an esteemed magazine, it was also like ‘oh, dope, I get to do the thing that I really love doing at T but throughout an entire magazine.’” Eve Peyser has joined Vice as a staff politics writer. She was previously Gizmodo’s night editor. Here are the rest of this week’s people on the move: T has been without an editor-in-chief since Deborah Needleman left early last month. This was just another in a stream of shakeups that led to executive editor Whitney Vargas being named interim editor-in-chief. Vargas has since left the brand.  Darling has also held a wide range of positions, most recently as editorial director for Better Homes & Gardens Special Interest Publications.last_img read more

White House Opposes House Plan to Bolster DOD Base Budget

first_imgThe House GOP’s plan to shift $23 billion from DOD’s overseas contingency operations (OCO) account to boost the department’s base budget would be “grossly irresponsible,” as it only funds operations overseas through April 2017, White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest said Thursday.President Obama’s budget called for using only $5 billion from the OCO account for DOD’s base budget needs. The House plan — which is included in the fiscal 2017 defense authorization bill — would force the next president to request supplemental war funding early next year.The maneuver is “not the way that we should be demonstrating our clear commitment to our men and women who are risking so much to protect our country,” Earnest said.House appropriators are expected to follow the authorization measure’s funding framework in the FY 2017 defense spending bill, reported CQ Roll Call.Earnest also referred to recent comments by Defense Secretary Ash Carter, calling them “uncharacteristically direct.” On several occasions Carter has said the Republicans’ funding scheme is “deeply troubling” and “flawed.”Earnest did not issue a veto threat over the annual defense policy bill, however. Last year, Obama vetoed the measure over its attempt to evade the Budget Control Act caps by stashing tens of billions of extra dollars in the OCO account, which is not subject to the spending caps.

Inhofe to Oppose Possible Cut in Defense Spending

first_imgSenate Armed Services Chairman Jim Inhofe (R-Okla.) on Wednesday said he would oppose a budget request that trims defense spending by 2.2 percent to $700 billion in fiscal 2020, a figure top administration officials have said President Trump is planning to propose. Inhofe said $733 billion, the spending level for national security originally proposed by the administration, “should be considered a floor, not a ceiling, for funding our troops.” The chairman’s remarks signal a possible showdown with the House Armed Services Committee next year. Rep. Adam Smith (D-Wash.), who is expected to lead the panel in the 116th Congress, has said current defense spending is unsustainable due to the nation’s rising debt levels, reports the Washington Examiner.Inhofe pointed to a new report which concluded the U.S. military has failed to keep pace with its adversaries. “In particular, I am troubled by the commission’s unequivocal assessment that the National Defense Strategy is not adequately resourced, and that our nation is ‘very near the point of strategic insolvency,’” he said. “I agree with the commission’s report that there must be ‘greater urgency and seriousness in funding national defense’ in order to ensure we can undertake essential nuclear and conventional modernization while rectifying readiness shortfalls.”DOD photo by Army Sgt.

This week, Billboard has reported that representatives for the venue’s ownership corporation have now revealed that two new venue spaces are to be added to Massey Hall as part of the construction project.”With these improvements, our goal is to keep the original inspiration of Hart Massey alive by continuing to operate as an eternal gift for the people of Toronto and making the hall more accessible for patrons and artists alike,” said Deanne Cameron, President/CEO of The Corporation of Massey Hall and Royal Thompson Hall.The two planned additions will be significantly “more intimate” performance spaces than the main concert hall, and will consist of a bar/lounge on Massey’s lower level, which will hold around 175 patrons, and a larger space on the venue’s fourth floor, which will reportedly hold 500 people. Rounding out the planned additions to the existing structure will be a full suite of upgraded technical capacities necessary to service the production needs of major A-list tours, a new loading dock, and additional washrooms and concession areas on every level of the structure.Sony Music U.K. Donates To Save Grassroots Music Venues Twitter last_img read more
