Dont Fall into the Text Analytics Trap

CallMinerSP_Words_774.png Text analytics resources, such as what is frequently available from many CX platforms, have been trained on text data. As such, they were exclusively built with the structure of that data in mind (punctuation, single speaker, third-person formal, spell-checked text). The issue is that voice communication is dramatically different from text-based communication. If you go down the voice transcript to text analytics route, your results will be less than adequate. The primary reason is that it’s not simply about what was spoken. Rather, it’s how you say it, when you speak it. Even what you might not be saying within a dialogue will influence intent and sentiment within voice communication! The bottom line is that applying a voice transcription to text analytics workflow to accurately capture the voice of your customer and voice of your agents will not work well for CX pros. Results will be far less contextually relevant, making it difficult to gauge loyalty or sentiment meaning. A more insidious concern is sending your root cause analysis in the wrong direction by completely missing a key element of unsolicited feedback or being mis-directed by a false positive. What AI Really Changes in the Contact Center Eric Krapf April 08, 2019 It’s all about making the whole process work better, faster, and cheaper. Search parameters allow for the concept of time, which is not available in text-based communication. And classifications extend substantially beyond keyword spotting, taking into account the myriad ways that concepts, such as escalations or dissatisfaction, are expressed in speech. Customer experience (CX) professionals need to be vigilant when they hear promises like “your call center call recordings can be transcribed in real time and processed through text analytics to derive insights.” This refrain tends to be emphasized by CX platform vendors that rely exclusively on text analytics to process feedback from customers. Sounds reasonable, right? Tags:News & Viewsspeech analyticstext analyticsvoicetextCallMinerSpeech TechnologiesAI & AutomationAI & Speech Technologies Articles You Might Like Speech analytics, on the other hand, has been trained on data derived from the different part of the brain, as noted above, to consider spoken dialogue. Speech analytics is tuned for the unstructured nature of voice communication. In addition, acoustics add another dimension to provide contextual accuracy with meaning emphasis. CallMiner_Table_take2_640px.png Speech analytics solutions are designed to handle the nuances of voice-based conversations. This has an enormous impact on the ability to surface insight that matters from this unstructured data. For example, predefined or user configured searches and classifications can more accurately identify topics, behaviors, procedures, and other events in spoken conversations. Different styles, connector words, fillers/silence, and disjointed flow are “meaning influencers” that text analytics systems relying on structure would likely miss. See All in Speech Technologies » Speech Analytics on Your Horizon Gary Audin March 22, 2019 If you haven’t studied speech analytics for your business, you need to start now — or be left behind. The following will educate CX pros with the information needed to understand why voice is fundamentally different from text. This awareness will enable you to effectively take advantage of the voices of your customers and agents to drive CX enhancements. Learn more in our May 16 webinar, Text and Speech Analytics Are Not Created Equal, featuring our team of data science experts. We Don’t Talk and Write the Same WayIn 2015, cognitive scientists at Johns Hopkins University discovered that writing and speaking are supported by different parts of the brain. This impacts not just the motor control for writing and how you form words when you speak, but also word and phrase construction.

Uranium miner Cameco reports 85 per cent drop in second quarter profit

Uranium miner Cameco reports 85 per cent drop in second quarter profit SASKATOON – Uranium miner Cameco (TSX:CCO) booked an 85 per cent drop in second-quarter earnings on lower sales, lower prices and higher costs, but said it expects demand and uranium prices to pick up before the end of the year.The world’s largest publicly traded uranium miner said Friday that second-quarter deliveries were low, in line with its expectations that it would be the quarter of 2012 with the weakest demand.On top of that, the contracts it delivered on during the quarter came with average realized uranium prices that were 10 per cent below where they were during the quarter a year ago.Demand for uranium fell off after last year’s nuclear disaster in Japan, and contracts for the quarter were negotiated when prices were still low, said president and CEO Tim Gitzel on a conference call.“As we move out of lower price contracts that came into effect when uranium prices were lower and into higher price contracts, we expect to see a general trend upwards,” he said, adding that deliveries are heavily weighted to the fourth quarter.While the industry continues to be in “wait and see” mode, Cameco said several positive developments have emerged. Japan gave approval to restart two reactors after being confirmed safe.Since the previous quarter, the nuclear industry continues to experience near- to medium-term uncertainty. However, positive developments have emerged as well.“We also believe these initial restarts will help pave the way for additional restarts in the near future,” the company said.“Overall, the uranium market continues to be in a wait-and-see mode as utilities are generally well covered for the next few years, and suppliers are similarly heavily committed. However, we have seen the emergence of some long-term contracting over the past few months.”Net earnings for the quarter came in at $8 million, or two cents per share compared to $55 million, or 14 cents per share in the same period last year. This quarter’s earnings included a US$30-million expense related to a contract termination.Revenue was $391 million for the quarter, down from $426 million year over year.On an adjusted basis, Cameco’s earnings were $34 million, or nine cents per share for the quarter compared to $71 million, or 18 cents year over year — missing analyst expectations by 15 cents.Analysts polled by Thomson Reuters were on average expecting Cameco to earn 24 cents per share and post revenues of $515 million.The company cited lower earnings from its uranium business based on lower sales volumes, lower realized prices and higher costs.However, it reported positive results in its electricity business, which benefited from a 16 per cent increase in power generation at its partially owned Bruce Power.Despite the weakness, Cameco maintained its revenue and production guidance for the year.Shares in Cameco were down 93 cents, or four per cent, to $21.71 in early trading on the Toronto Stock Exchange.In June, Calypso Uranium Corp. (TSXV:CLP) said Cameco bowed out of their exploration agreement for several properties in Argentina as the result of a strategic shift in focus.Cameco could have acquired a 51 per cent interest in Calypso’s subsidiary Energia Mineral Inc. under a three-year option agreement signed in September 2010.Under the 2010 agreement, Cameco had the option to spend $3 million in each of three years to acquire the 51 per cent equity stake in Energia. By pulling out of the final year of funding, it will have no equity stake in Energia.Saskatoon-based Cameco is one of the world’s largest uranium producers. It has mines, mills and conversion plants in Canada, the United States and abroad and produces fuel that runs nuclear power plants around the world.Shares in the company closed down 2.5 per cent or 56 cents to $22.08 on the Toronto Stock Exchange. by News Staff Posted Jul 27, 2012 5:17 pm MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email read more

Senior UN official deeply concerned over reports of children used in fighting

However, to date, less than 20 per cent of the Flash Appeal and only about 53 per cent of the $861 million required for on-going operations of humanitarian partners has been received. “Everybody has to do everything possible to ensure [the civilians] live and receive the assistance they need,” said Ms. Grande. The news release also flagged that the UN is deeply concerned over reports of mass graves of thousands of civilians in areas formerly under the control of ISIL.According to OCHA, the crisis in Iraq is one of the largest, most complex and volatile in the world. More than 10 million Iraqis currently require some form of humanitarian assistance, including 3.4 million civilians who are internally displaced, many for the second or third time. “Involving children in fighting is totally unacceptable,” said the UN Humanitarian Coordinator for Iraq, Lise Grande, in a news release issued by the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA) today, expressing deep concern at the reports of recruitment of children in at least one displacement camp in the country.“Nothing is more important than ensuring the safety of civilians during the conflict,” she added.Ms. Grande, who is also the UN Secretary-General’s Deputy Special Representative for Iraq, further warned that hundreds of thousands of civilians will require protection and assistance, given that the battle to retake Mosul, the second largest city in the country, is likely to start soon. Reminding that international humanitarian law prohibits all parties to the conflict from recruitment of minors or their use in hostilities and that it requires the parties ensure the protection of civilians and allow them to leave conflict zones safely, Ms. Grande said: “Under no circumstances can civilians be used as human shields. This violates all principles of humanity.” The news release added that humanitarian actors in the country issued a so-called Flash Appeal in July, urgently requesting $284 million to prepare for a response in Mosul. A Flash Appeal occurs within the context of any major sudden onset disaster that requires a coordinated response beyond the capacity of the government plus any single UN agency to respond to, and it outlines specific response plans to address acute humanitarian needs, normally for up to six months. Humanitarian agencies have also sought funding for the regular 2016 Humanitarian Response Plan which provides assistance for 7.3 million Iraqis. read more

Toronto Wolfpack edge Widnes to clinch Betfred Championship regularseason crown

BROWSE rugby | toronto wolfpack | toronto wolfpack rugby The Toronto Wolfpack clinched the regular-season title in the second-tier Betfred Championship on Sunday, running its rugby league win streak to 16 games with a hard-fought 24-19 comeback victory over Widnes Vikings.After Danny Craven’s drop goal gave Widnes a 19-18 lead in the 73rd minute, the Vikings mishandled the ensuing kickoff. Toronto forward Anthony Mullally bulled his way over the line, fighting through several Widnes players to touch down under the post in the 74th.Hakim Miloudi, the third Toronto kicker on the day, booted the conversion to give Toronto the lead.The second-place York City Knights (15-6-1) edged Bradford 25-24 early in the day but, trailing Toronto by 11 points with five games left, cannot catch the Wolfpack.That allowed the transatlantic Wolfpack to host the League Leaders’ Shield after Sunday’s game, splashing champagne on the field as Widnes fans booed.Finishing first in the standings means Toronto has a shorter playoff path in its bid for promotion to the elite Super League. The top five teams in the Championship will meet in the post-season with one promotion place on the line.As a first-place team, Toronto gets a bye into the semifinal as well as a home-field advantage.The Wolfpack failed at the final promotion hurdle last season when the promotion format was more complicated. Toronto went 20-2-1 in winning the Championship regular-season title, only to lose 4-2 to London Broncos in the Million Pound Game last October.Widnes proved to be a motivated opponent Sunday, given that a loss in Toronto last season sealed its relegation. Sporting a stiff defence and some opportunistic offence, the Vikings led 12-8 at the half at Halton Stadium.“The game came down to some big plays from both teams. So I’m really pleased with the win,” said Toronto coach Brian McDermott.“I can’t wait to lift the trophy in front of our fans as well,” he added. “But the bigger picture for us is the (promotion) Grand Final and that’s what we’re steering towards.”Toronto (21-1-0) was without three key backs in Gareth O’Brien, Ricky Leutele and Matty Russell. O’Brien and Russell were injured while Leutele was rested. Forward Adam Sidlow is still recovering from injury.Joe Mellor, a former Widnes player, started at fullback in place of O’Brien. Nick Rawsthorne and Greg Worthington also started in the backs.Rawsthorne, Chase Stanley, Bodene Thompson and Darcy Lussick also scored tries for Toronto.Without O’Brien, the Wolfpack had kicking problems. Josh McCrone took over kicking duties after Rawsthorne missed two wide conversion and was good on one of two conversions.Lloyd Roby, Craven and Ryan Ince scored tries for Widnes (12-10-0). Jack Owens kicked three conversions and Craven added a drop goal.Rawsthorne opened the scoring in the seventh minute, touching down in the corner after Mellor beat two defenders.After a Widnes try was called back for a knock-on, the home side went ahead with a converted try in the 26th minute. Roby crossed the line, taking a pass from Joe Lyons whose kick on the last tackle bounced back to him off Stanley to keep the attack alive. An earlier kick on the game player had also bounced back from a Toronto player.Craven added to the lead in the 30th after a fine run, cutting through the Toronto defence courtesy of two fine dummy passes.Andy Ackers crossed the line later in the half for Toronto but fumbled the ball for a knock-on. Another handling error snuffed out a Wolfpack attack in the danger zone as the half neared an end.But Stanley bulled his way over in the 39th minute to cut the deficit to 12-8.Toronto tied it up in the 36th minute with a powerful run from Bodene Thompson after Jayden Hatton fumbled a Wolfpack kick near the Widnes try-line.Toronto began to turn up the heat and Lussick put the Wolfpack ahead in the 52nd minute, retrieving an errant pass at the Widnes goalpost for a converted try and 18-12 lead.But a poor Toronto pass in the 58th minute was collected by Ince who outran Wolfpack chasers for an 80-metre try. Owens’ conversion tied it at 18-18.A successful 40-20 kick by Craven in the 65th minute moved Widnes deep into Toronto territory but the attack fizzled in a poor Roby pass at the corner.Toronto moved right back up the field with Thompson and Gary Wheeler combining for major metres only to see Mellor spill the ball on the Widnes goal-line one play later.McCrone tried a drop goal in the 70th minute but his low kick hit the woodwork. Craven succeed with his kick in the 73rd minute for a 19-18 lead.The Wolfpack have lost just once this season, dropping a 46-16 decision to Toulouse Olympique on March 9. Toronto has beaten Toulouse twice since then.Widnes came into the game in 11th place in the standings, thanks to a 12-point penalty for financial missteps.In its inaugural 2017 season, Toronto won all 15 regular-season games to top the third-tier League One and win promotion to the Championship after a 5-1-1 playoff run.The promotion format has changed this year with just one Championship team earning promotion.Last year, the top four teams in the Championship and bottom four in the Super League met up in the Super 8s Qualifiers. The top three in the playoff round-robin secured Super League status while No. 4 met No. 5 in the Million Pound Game.Toronto, Salford, Leeds and Hull Kingston Rovers all finished with 5-2-0 records in the promotion table. But Salford (plus-143), Leeds (plus-79) and Hull KR (plus-35) finished ahead of Toronto (plus-18) on points difference to secure the three automatic promotion places.Toronto finished fourth and London fifth, at 4-3-0, setting up the Million Pound Game.The Wolfpack plays next at Bradford on Aug. 4. read more

Even If They Dont Win Tonight the 76ers Are Getting Better

The Philadelphia 76ers are one loss from tying the NBA record for longest losing streak. And barring an enormous upset on the road against the Houston Rockets on Thursday, they’ll tie the 26-game run of futility by the Cleveland Cavaliers in 2010-11. The Sixers have a better chance of losing their last 11 games of the season than they do of beating the Rockets to avoid matching that ignominious record.But in a lost season in Philly, fans have two reasons to hope the 76ers can keep from setting a new losing-streak mark. First, up next after Houston is a home game Saturday against Detroit. The Sixers have a 1-in-3 chance of winning that one. Second, they’ve played well recently, in the latest demonstration that wins and losses alone don’t show how well a team is doing.An NBA team’s probability of winning a game depends on its performance level as measured by Basketball Reference’s Simple Rating System, its opponents’ SRS, and home court. Incorporating all three factors,1I used SRS — a formula based on teams’ margin of victory and schedule strength — regressed to the mean by adding seven games of league-average play, as suggested by my colleague Neil Paine last year. Then I used the formula for win probability outlined by Justin Kubatko last year on his blog. I found that Philadelphia has a 4 percent chance of beating the Rockets on Thursday. Houston is more than five points per game better than league average, and will play with home-court advantage against a Sixers team with a typical level this season of 11.5 points per game below average.So, let’s say the Sixers lose to Houston as expected. Then Detroit comes to Philadelphia, with a losing-streak record on the line. The Pistons are three points below league average, and will be playing on the road. Philadelphia has a 34 percent chance of winning the game, and a 33 percent chance of breaking its losing streak. (I’m accounting for the minuscule probability that the 76ers beat the Rockets first.)Detroit is the second-easiest game left on Philly’s schedule, after a home date with Boston in the season’s penultimate game. The Sixers have a 38 percent chance of winning that one, but just an 8 percent chance of breaking their streak in that game, because most likely it will have ended before then.I ran the numbers on Philly’s chance of winning each remaining game, as well as of breaking the streak in each game. The latter probability is lower than the former for each game after the one against Houston, because two conditions must be met: Philly must win, and must not have won before. Based on these calculations, Philadelphia has a 12 percent chance of finishing the season on a 36-game skid — or three times its probability of beating Houston on Thursday.Some factors might make it easier for Philly to win than these probability calculations suggest. Opponents that have clinched their playoff spot and seed, or that have been eliminated from the postseason, might rest their stars. Then again, no team wants to lose to an opponent with a losing streak of 25 games — or longer.There’s another reason Philly’s chances might be better than they look: In the Sixers’ last five games, they’ve been closer to mediocre than terrible. I evaluated their performance level by taking their margin of defeat in each game, adjusting for home-court advantage2The average home team wins games this year by 2.57 points per game, through Monday, the day Philadelphia last played. and opponent strength.3Based on SRS, regressed to the mean with seven league-average games. In four of the last five games, the Sixers have played better than their typical level this season.4Again, regressed to the mean with seven average games. Without that step, Philadelphia is an even worse 11.5 points below league average. They were within five points of league average in their one-point home loss to the Knicks, and were even better in a nine-point road loss to the East-leading Pacers. In that game — in which Philadelphia trailed by three with under two minutes left — the 76ers performed at a level just two points below league average.Moral victories don’t end losing streaks. But they could bode well for Philly’s chances. Already, the Sixers have attained their best average level over five games since the five games that immediately preceded the start of their losing streak, in which they went 2-3.5The last of those five games was their last victory, and it could easily have been a defeat: Philadelphia trailed Boston by a point before Evan Turner’s last-second shot. If Boston had won that game, and all subsequent events were unchanged, Philly’s losing streak would now stand at a record 29 games. Philadelphia’s average level over its last five games — 7.2 points below league average — is 10.5 points better than its level during the 25-game losing streak. It’s also better than the 76ers’ average level during three separate 2-3 stretches earlier in the season.So, over the last five games, the Sixers have improved to a level somewhere between the Orlando Magic and the Milwaukee Bucks, the two teams just above them near the bottom of the league power ratings. Does that mean the chances of the 76ers winning their remaining games, and of ending the streak, have gone up? History doesn’t provide many precedents. Just six other NBA teams have had losing streaks of more than 20 games. Two of those streaks extended over two seasons, and any effect of the team’s level at the end of the first season was unlikely to carry over to the start of the next season. The Charlotte Bobcats lost their last 23 games of the season in 2011-12, and showed little sign of winning a game near the end: Their performance in four of their last six games was more than 20 points below league average.That leaves three teams that broke losing streaks of longer than 20 games during the regular season: the 1995-96 Vancouver Grizzlies, in the first year of the franchise; the 1997-98 Denver Nuggets; and the 2010-11 Cavs. The Grizzlies suffered the worst loss of their 23-game losing streak two games before ending it. The Nuggets showed no signs of improvement near the end, performing at least eight points below average in each of their last eight losses. The Cavs, though, signaled their potential toward the end of their record 26-game streak: Their best five-game run of the streak came in the last five games, including a three-point loss in Dallas against a strong Mavericks team two games before Cleveland finally won, beating the Los Angeles Clippers in overtime.These streaks had at least one thing in common: All three teams won their first game in more than 20 against teams performing at a level more than two points below average. So circle that game against Detroit, Sixers fans — and be ready to circle the home game against Boston if Philly doesn’t get it done against the Pistons on Saturday. read more

A son in a coma and a family determined to help others

first_imgAn SaolReinard Schaler told TheJournal.ie that the family want to set up a place where young people who have brain injuries can stay while they wait to go to the NRH, or after they come out of it.He wants to call it An Saol after a podcast Pádraig – a gaelgoir – used to make.It’s really based on our own experience with the lack of facilities for patients like Pádraig and our frustration, not just ours but frustrations of professionals working in the system.The family have been in touch with other families who have children in similar situations.“Everyone is struggling with same problems,” said Reinhard. “If you have a very severe brain injury… what happens is you go into an acute hospital and you wait for three months in the NRH and that takes roughly a year.”He said families have told him that once their child got into the NRH, they generally were discharged after three months. “After those three months they are sent back there to the acute hospital, or to a nursing home.”Reinhard said that when the family experienced the acute hospital, they knew that “for many, many reasons it isn’t adequate” for their son.In particular, they do not feel it is appropriate to have young people like Pádraig in nursing homes.An alternative for patientsAn Saol would be an alternative, “a house for patients with very severe brain injuries who are currently be cared for in an acute hospital or in nursing homes for the elderly – both totally inadequate environments for such patients”, said Reinhard.The atmosphere at An Saol would be homely and welcoming. It would have six – 10 beds, and also a day care facility where therapies could be offered. It would provide an environment that is “positive and energetic”.Reinhard previously worked as a volunteer driver for St Francis’ Hospice, and was inspired by how it is run: “Everything that you need in a very positive environment, not just for patients but for families”.That is exactly what he envisions for An Saol.He wants it to have as ‘normal’ an environment as possible, with access to different sensations like smells, colour and music, so they aren’t deprived of their senses. AFTER A YEAR by their son’s bedside as he lies in a coma in hospital, his father Reinhard Schaler and mother Pat O’Byrne have much experience of the Irish health system.But such was their early experience that they moved their son to a hospital in Hamburg, where he can get better longterm care.The alternative, they say, would be to put him on the waiting list at the National Rehabilitation Hospital (NRH), where he would have to leave after a number of months. Then, he could face the prospect of being sent to a nursing home for treatment.They want better than that for their son, and for everyone else in this situation. They are lucky to be in the position to be able to bring Pádraig to Hamburg – thanks to his father being German – which is why they have decided to open a centre called An Saol. A year in a coma, but Pádraig slowly shows signs of progress “It’s agony”: Pádraig is in a coma – his family say Ireland’s healthcare system has failed him Working to make it happen“In my head, it is 1 January 2016 that the place opens. I’m working my way back from that,” said Reinhard, who has spoken to consultants and professionals in the acquired brain injury area about his idea, to make sure it would be possible.The next thing going to happen is we are going to make a concrete plan: what is needed to setup for the house itself. The staff, the equipment, the finance, obviously that is very important.He is inspired by a centre on the outskirts of Hamburg run by father whose daughter acquired a brain injury about 20 years ago. “One of the possibilities would be to team up with somebody who has done something like this before, and learn from them,” suggested Reinhard.He also plans to meet with the HSE and the Department of Health about An Saol.Impact on the familySeeing their tall, strong and intelligent son suffer a brain injury has had a huge effect on the family. An Saol is a way of creating something positive from what they’re going through.“I feel very strongly that this is all very depressing, and very hard and very sad. There’s a lot of crying and stuff and a lot of desperation,” said Reinhard.“After a year you almost come to a point where you think it is not about looking back and saying how horrible it is and saying look at all the plans he had look at the pictures of how he was. It’s how can we best deal with it, and do something positive.”Part of that has been seeing Pádraig’s friends take part in inspiring events that not only raise money for the family, but show how dedicated they are to their friend.“We got to know them much much better over last year – in my mind it’s them and [Pádraig’s] wider family who are giving [us] the strength to do something about this. It would be so easy to just give in but you can’t.”Brain injury is something that “can happen to anybody at any time”, said Reinhard.The family know they aren’t the only ones to go through this – but they need help if they want to make An Saol happen.“We need some champions to help us along,” said Reinhard. “We need politicians to make it happen. If we get that we make a very positive thing in a dire situation. That is why we are doing it – it will help other people.”To find out more, or to offer assistance, visit Reinhard’s blog or contact reinhardschaler@gmail.com.Read: A year in a coma, but Pádraig slowly shows signs of progress>Read: 50 friends raise €32,000 during swim challenge for friend in a coma>Read: “It’s agony”: Pádraig is in a coma – his family say Ireland’s healthcare system has failed him>last_img read more

MPA Chairman John Griffin We Have the Best Brands in Media

first_imgThe magazine industry’s State of the Union-like address took place today as MPA chairman and National Geographic Group president John Griffin spoke to an audience of about 100 at the MPA’s Breakfast with a Leader, held at the University Club in New York City.According to Griffin, the greatest challenges magazine publishers face today are a time crunch, Internet growth, buyer confusion (advertisers calling for more accountability), circulation pressures (price deflation, verified circ), and the green movement. “We know there’s this tremendous change and we can’t predict anything,” he told the crowd. “We have to rely on the power of what we have. We have the best brands in media.” The new chairman outlined five opportunities for magazine publishers—to increase the industry’s ad market share; increase online reach and revenue; create a stable, timely, credible audience accumulation measurement; promote buying and sampling of magazines; and think green.Another Call for New MetricsLike his predecessor Jack Kliger, the CEO of Hachette Filipacchi who was appointed MPA chairman in October 2005, Griffin is reiterating the need for new, more substantive audience metrics in order to compete with other media, so magazine advertisers can make a cross-platform buy and be able to say, ‘I know my ad worked in this magazine at this time,’ in as short amount of time as possible. However, Griffin said, “We’ll never produce overnights. People don’t consume magazines this way, but we can be a lot faster than we are.” He said the MPA has been working with research firm McKinsey & Company to figure out “what this would look like and how fast we can get,” but the biggest challenge is the methodology.Griffin agrees that the process of change has been slow but said magazine publishers have to be confident, talk to advertisers and push to make this happen. But, he said, magazine publishers won’t be the ones to make it happen—they just need to be prepared to have this information available. “People need to be able to buy us the way we want them to buy us,” he said. According to Griffin, the MPA has conducted 20 interviews with influential “senior people” in the ad business about how they would react to such new metrics.Dysfunctional Family?Griffin highlighted another of Kliger’s professed priorities—getting magazine companies to work together—when an audience member asked if any progress had been made in that area, commenting that the industry “has always been a sort of dysfunctional family.” Griffin said it’s still hard to get people to work together—at National Geographic, he said, “we have had some talks, but not much to show for them”—but said that Kliger’s push for publishers to “sell the industry not against each other” has had an impact on people’s perspectives.Print vs. OnlineThough he said it’s not time to “flee the Golden Goose” of print, Griffin said more magazine business will be electronic. “We need to create seamless communication between print and online,” he said, “and let the marketplace tell us where to go.” When asked if this means “we need to rethink who we are.” Griffin agreed it was an issue, pointing out that the Periodical Publishers Association in the U.K. is thinking of changing its name and that the MPA is not currently considering a change but may have to. When asked if there is opportunity in selling online content, Griffin was not optimistic. “To be charging for information? We would love to, but I’m not sure if we will be able to compete that way,” he said. However, he said, various parts of what we do can be paid—at National Geographic, archives and photo contests are two such opportunities.The Power of MagazinesGriffin spent a good part of the hour-long speech on the power of magazines and their brands. For an example, he pointed to the New Yorker Festival—strong with advertisers for its brand power and credibility with speakers and the audience.He called for publishers to present the brand power of magazines versus other media to advertisers—including the greater ability to create community, attract a high quality paid audience, leverage the reader-editorial relationship, and sell on trust and environment. “Are we going to be the flame or the moth?” he asked as a general question to the industry. “What is it that you are, and how are you going to translate that into success? How are we going to be effective in a time of change?”last_img read more

Fired Oil Tax Assessor To Run For State House

first_imgIn January, Gov. Sean Parnell removed Marty McGee from a board that deals with the oil producers’ tax bill. Now, McGee wants to take on oil tax policy again – but as a state legislator.Download AudioMcGee filed his campaign paperwork on Friday. He’s running for the District 22 House seat, which covers the Sand Lake neighborhood of Anchorage. Even though the 57-year-old McGee has been a registered Republican for his adult life, he’s changed his party affiliation and will be running as a Democrat. He says he doesn’t feel like there’s space for him to run as a centrist Republican.“The moderates are being pushed aside and not allowed to be a real material part of making policy and introducing legislation,” says McGee. “That’s why I think that I can be most effective as a Democrat in the Legislature.”McGee has had his share of conflict with some of the state’s most prominent Republicans.For nearly a decade McGee served on the State Assessment Review Board. That board is responsible for deciding the value of the TransAlaska Pipeline, and that number is used to calculate the oil companies’ municipal property tax bill. For every billion dollars the pipeline is worth, the oil companies are taxed about $20 million by municipalities along the TAPS route. Last year, the Board determined the pipeline was worth $12 billion, while the North Slope oil producers argued for $2 billion. Parnell removed McGee from the board this year, because he believed the board was overvaluing the pipeline under McGee’s tenure. Bernie Washington, who serves as Alaska Public Media’s chief financial officer and previously worked for ConocoPhillips, was one of Parnell’s picks to fill the vacancy.McGee also spent 17 years as the property tax assessor for the Municipality of Anchorage. He resigned from the position in protest last year amidst disagreement with Anchorage Mayor Dan Sullivan, after the Municipality returned $1 million it collected in property taxes to Enstar. Parnell is running for reelection, and Sullivan is running for lieutenant governor.McGee says if all three of them were to end up in Juneau next year, relations probably wouldn’t be friendly.“Probably not — I don’t regard them as allies,” says McGee.McGee says his removal from the State Assessment Review Board played into his decision to run, but it wasn’t the only factor. McGee says he cares about labor issues, and he also opposes Parnell’s new law capping the oil production tax rate at 35 percent. He supports the citizen’s referendum to repeal it.“I think that the state government should be working to support local governments, not as an adversary with local governments. Which is what I think I’m seeing going on currently,” says McGee.McGee is the only Democrat to register for the open Sand Lake House seat. Liz Vazquez, David Nees, and Sherri Jackson have all filed letters of intent for the Republican primary.Sand Lake is currently represented by Republican Mia Costello, who is vacating the seat to run for the State Senate.last_img read more

first_imgGot a news tip? Want to share your story? Email us . Queer Eye’s fashion expert Tan France got real about being a gay person of color in a new interview. France represents underrepresented LGBTI people | Photo: YouTube/ELLE GAYSTARNEWS- While speaking with the ShortList, France spoke about a variety of subjects, including racism and living in Utah.France was born and raised in England to Pakistani parents. He now lives in Salt Lake City, Utah with his husband, Rob France.In the interview, he calls Salt Like City ‘one of the whitest states in the US’ and therefore ‘a little backwards’. Despite this, he loves it.‘It’s my favourite place on Earth. The people are really good people – they’re very sweet – and I get to represent so many versions of myself,’ he said.‘That helps me push an agenda a little and spread the word. They get to meet a brown person and I can address misconceptions about the LGBTQ community.’Navigating multiple identitiesOn the subject of being gay, a person of color, and Muslim, France believes coming out would have been easier if he were white.‘I have to battle so many issues, and the biggest is racism,’ he eplained.His inclusion on Queer Eye can help people of color in the LGBTI community who don’t always have the same privileges as white people.

That’s a kind of privilege people don’t know they possess.’Ultimately, France doesn’t believe there’s any ‘right’ way to be gay or come out, and wants people to see him fully.‘My sexuality and being a person of colour are both secondary to who I am as a person.

Hologic’s Selenia Dimensions systemOctober 3, 2014 — The recent approval of GE Healthcare’s SenoClaire by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) will end Hologic’s monopoly of the U.S. digital breast tomosynthesis (DBT) market, offering greater choice for hospitals and patients, according to an analyst with research and consulting firm GlobalData.Niharika Midha, MSc, GlobalData’s analyst covering medical devices, says that SenoClaire has become only the second DBT system available in the United States and will compete directly with Hologic’s pioneer product, Selenia Dimensions, which has controlled the market since 2011.According to GlobalData’s estimates, the U.S. is expected to see a significant rise in DBT unit sales, with a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 36.4 percent between 2013 and 2020. In addition, DBT is expected to contribute a massive 82 percent toward U.S. breast imaging market revenues by 2020, making this a highly lucrative space for diagnostic imaging players.“Due to this positive outlook, other companies are also working towards FDA approval for their DBT systems. For example, Siemens Healthcare filed an application for its system, Mammomat Inspiration with DBT option, in June this year,” Midha said.The analyst notes the two approved DBT devices differ significantly in their mechanisms of acquiring 3-D data sets. Selenia Dimensions acquires 15 images over a 15-degree scan angle, and is capable of providing both 3-D mediolateral oblique (MLO) and 3-D craniocaudal (CC) views of the breast, while SenoClaire captures nine images over 25 degrees to form a 3-D MLO view of the breast. It is unclear whether this device also allows acquisition of a 3-D CC view.In addition, Selenia Dimensions uses a continuous tube motion to capture images, while SenoClaire uses a step-and-shoot motion for the X-ray tube, meaning the gantry comes to a full halt at every X-ray exposure.Midha continued, “This could mean a higher scan time with SenoClaire than with Selenia Dimensions for the same breast views. It is important to note, however, that a higher scan time does not necessarily mean increased radiation exposure. Irrespective of the differences between the products, GlobalData believes that long-term success will come down to targeted marketing and strategic pricing.”For more information: www.globaldata.com FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享 News | Mammography | August 14, 2019 Imago Systems Announces Collaboration With Mayo Clinic for Breast Imaging Image visualization company Imago Systems announced it has signed a know-how license with Mayo Clinic.

Home Equity Gains are Rising in the West

first_img CoreLogic Home Equity 2016-12-08 MirashaBrown The substantial and ongoing rise in aggregate home equity across the country over the last seven years is creating more wealth for homeowners—and the West Coast is leading the way in equity gains.Homeowners in the United States saw their equity increase by an aggregate total of $227 billion in Q3 2016, which is a 3.1 increase from Q2 2016, according to CoreLogic’s Q3 2016 Negative Equity Report. Home equity has grown by $726 billion since last year, which is a 10.8 percent increase in Q3 compared to Q3 2015.The number of underwater mortgaged homes, or those with with negative equity, was at 3.2 million (6.3 percent) in Q3 2016, which is a decrease of 10.7 percent quarter-over-quarter from 3.6 million homes (7.1 percent) in Q2 2016. The share of borrowers with negative equity is way down from its Q4 2009 peak of 26 percent, according to CoreLogic.Dr. Frank Nothaft, Chief Economist for CoreLogic, acknowledged a trend in West Coast states that obtaining positive equity. “Home equity rose by $12,500 for the average homeowner over the last four quarters,” he said. “There was wide geographic variation with homeowners in California, Oregon and Washington gaining an average of at least $25,000 in home equity wealth, while owners in Alaska, North Dakota and Connecticut had small declines, on average.”Texas had  the highest percentage of homes with positive equity (98.4 percent), followed by Alaska (98.1 percent), Colorado (97.9 percent), Utah (97.9 percent), and Washington (97.9 percent), according to CoreLogic.

Florida (12.5 percent), Illinois (10.6 percent), Arizona (10.6 percent), and Rhode Island (10 percent) rounded out the top five states that made up 30.6 percent of negative equity mortgages in the nation.Anand Nallathambi, President and CEO of CoreLogic, attributed the equity gains to the rise in home prices. “Price appreciation is the main ingredient for home equity wealth creation, and home prices rose 5.8 percent in the year ending September 2016 according to the CoreLogic Home Price Index,” he said. “Pay down of principal is the second key component of equity building. Many homeowners have refinanced into shorter-term loans, such as a 15-year loan, and by doing so, they have significantly fewer mortgage payments and are able to build equity wealth faster.”Three out of the five metros with the highest share of homes with positive equity were located in the West. San Francisco was first at 99.4 percent, followed by Houston (98.5 percent), Denver (98.4 percent), Los Angeles (96.9 percent), and Boston (95.3 percent).The metro area with the highest percentage of mortgaged properties in negative equity in Q3 was Miami at 17 percent, followed by Las Vegas (16.2 percent), Chicago (12.2 percent), Washington, D.C.
