S. Korea’s Son released for full Asian Games under Tottenham deal

first_imgIn fight vs corruption, Duterte now points to Ayala, MVP companies as ‘big fish’ Spurs had initially sought to keep Son back until August 18, when they have a Premier League match against Fulham.That would have effectively kept the 26-year-old out of the group stage for Asia’s mini-Olympics, where the football tournament runs from August 14 to September 2.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSGinebra beats Meralco again to capture PBA Governors’ Cup titleSPORTSAfter winning title, time for LA Tenorio to give back to Batangas folkSPORTSTim Cone still willing to coach Gilas but admits decision won’t be ‘simple yes or no’But Spurs later relented, striking a deal that rules Son out of South Korea’s Asian Cup games on January 7 and 11 against the Philippines and Kyrgyzstan, as well as an international friendly in November.There are precedents for footballers being granted exemptions from South Korea’s 21-month military service, as happened in 2002, when the national team reached the World Cup semi-finals, and in 2014, when they won gold at the Asian Games in Incheon.

No new speed signs for Churchill despite concerns

first_imgThere are increased road safety concerns in the village of Churchill after the opening of a new play park.Children and families have been enjoying the new amenity since it opened in March.But as summer comes, the higher number of people crossing the road in the area is a cause for concern. Cllr Adrian Glackin brought the issue before Letterkenny MD on Wednesday, asking that new signs be placed to reduce speed at either side of the village.Cllr Glackin said that a ‘Slow Down’ or ‘Children Crossing’ sign would improve safety for pedestrians crossing from the play park to the cafe, toilets and bars on the other side of the road.However, the roads department replied to say that 50KPH speed limit signage is already in place in the village and the signs are full in accordance with guidelines.No new speed signs for Churchill despite concerns was last modified: May 15th, 2019 by Rachel McLaughlinShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:Adrian GlackinChurchilllast_img read more

Payal Tadvi’s death: Two more doctors held; all three accused remanded in police custody till May 31

first_imgAccording to sources, several teams from the Agripada as well as nearby police stations formed for the purpose talked simultaneously to the relatives of the accused over the course of the last two days to gain leads about their whereabouts. Dr. Mehare was arrested from Mumbai on Tuesday when she came to meet her lawyer in connection with their anticipatory bail application. Dr. Ahuja was picked up near the Andheri railway station by a team from the Agripada police station on Tuesday night and Dr. Khandelwal from Hinjewadi in Pune by a team from the Nagpada police station.The next challenge before the police was the rule that a woman accused cannot be arrested after sunset. “As soon as we picked up Dr. Ahuja and Dr. Khandelwal, we approached a magistrate late at night and got an order signed from him permitting us to arrest them after sunset. As per law, such an arrest can only made with a magistrate’s order,” Deputy Commissioner of Police (Zone III) Abhinash Kumar said.The two were then taken to the office of the Assistant Commissioner of Police Deepak Kundal, Agripada division, who is spearheading the probe and placed under arrest. All the three accused were subsequently produced in court on Wednesday morning and remanded in police custody till May 31.Investigating officers said the three accused had gone to Dr. Tadvi’s room the day she committed suicide, and this aspect needed to be probed further. “Dr. Tadvi’s mother has expressed suspicion that the trio might have found a suicide note blaming them for the extreme step and destroyed it. We will be interrogating the accused in connection with this,” the officer said.The police, however, are still looking for evidence to substantiate the claims of Dr. Tadvi’s family that she was harassed due to her caste. Sources said that statements of over 20 witnesses had been recorded so far, but no proof of casteist slurs has come to light.“On the other hand, Dr. Tadvi, in one of her messages to her mother, had said that the three accused do not even know her caste,” the officer said……………….Those in distress or having suicidal tendencies could seek help and counselling by calling any of the following numbers:BMC Mental Health Helpline: 022-24131212 (24×7)Vandrevala Foundation: 18602662345/18002333330 (24×7)I Call – 022-25521111 (8 a.m. to 10 p.m., Monday to Saturday)The Samaritans Mumbai: 8422984528/842984529/8422984530 (3 p.m. to 9 p.m., all days) Senior doctor held for Payal Tadvi’s death The two absconding doctors booked for allegedly abetting the suicide of Payal Tadvi, a second year resident doctor with the BYL Nair hospital, were arrested in the early hours of Wednesday by the Agripada police.Hema Ahuja, Bhakti Mehare and Ankita Khandelwal, all third-year resident doctors, were booked on May 23 this year, a day after Tadvi killed herself in her hostel room on the hospital’s premises. They had been on the run since then.Also Readlast_img read more

Islanders Catch Wily Coyotes, 5-1

first_imgTweetPinShare0 Shares UNIONDALE, N.Y. — Playing the reeling Arizona Coyotes, the New York Islanders weren’t at their best for the first 40 minutes.But they rebounded for the final 20 as they scored four unanswered goals and earned another home win.Matt Martin and Johnny Boychuk scored less than a minute apart early in the third to break a tie and the Islanders went on to rout the Coyotes 5-1 on Feb. 24.Martin snapped a 1-1 tie before Boychuk added his seventh at 4:15. The win kept the Islanders atop the Metropolitan Division by two points over the rival Rangers and sent the Coyotes to their seventh straight defeat.“We knew we needed to be better and we went out and played a strong third,” said Martin, who tied his career high with this eighth goal of the season. “We want to play up to our capability and we did.”Kael Mouillierat — his first goal in the NHL — and Brock Nelson also scored in the third. Mouillierat’s goal came at 7:16 while Nelson’s was at 9:10. Colin McDonald assisted on both.“There are times in the minors when you think it’s never going to happen so when it does happen, it’s a pretty unbelievable feeling,” said the 27-year-old Mouillierat who was playing his third game and also assisted on Martin’s goal.Backup Chad Johnson made 27 saves in his fourth start in the past 11 games to improve to 8-7-1.“We stayed focused and tight as a group and it paid off,” Johnson said. “It all starts in the room for us as it has all year. We know what it takes to be successful.”The Islanders played the type of third period that has them in first place as Monday’s trade deadline approaches.They skated hard and wore down the tired Coyotes and goaltender Mike Smith, outshooting Arizona 14-8 and scoring four times. The victory was a rebound for the Islanders after a Feb. 22 4-0 loss to Vancouver.“We had 1-1 game in the third period on the road and we just self-destructed,” Smith said. “It’s about giving ourselves a chance and again, we didn’t get it done. Simple plays have got to be made.”Anders Lee opened the scoring with his 20th goal 37 seconds into the second before Arizona’s Marc Arcobello tied the game at 15:52 of the second.It was the 12th goal of the season for Arcobello. He was acquired by Arizona on waivers from Pittsburgh on Feb. 11. He has four goals for the Coyotes.The teams played a bland first with the Islanders failing to take advantage of Arizona playing the night before at Newark, New Jersey, where the Coyotes lost 3-0 to the Devils.There was more energy in the second as the Coyotes had a 14-13 shots advantage and the teams traded goals.Islanders coach Jack Capuano started shifting line combinations midway through the first period and kept the trend going throughout the second and third.The Islanders have won 19 of their past 25 home games and have outshot their opponents in 29 of the past 33 games.They will finish a busy month of 10 home games with back-to-back games at Nassau Coliseum on Feb. 27 against Calgary and Feb. 28 against Carolina.New York is 22-8 at home this season and it has reached the 40-win mark for the first time since 2006-07.Earlier Feb. 24, the Islanders announced the signing of defenseman Nick Leddy to a seven-year contract extension worth a reported $38.5 million.Leddy was acquired from Chicago on Oct. 4 — the same day they snared his defense partner Johnny Boychuk from Boston. Leddy, 23, would have been a restricted free agent this summer. He won a Stanley Cup with the Blackhawks in 2013.“He’s a great young defenseman with a lot of upside,” Capuano said. “It speaks volumes that he wants to be here. It’s gratifying.”Arizona will visit the Rangers on Feb. 26 before completing its trip at Boston on Feb. 28.(ALLAN KREDA)last_img read more

Sri Lanka vs West Indies: Dream11 Playing 11, Captain and Vice-Captain Prediction for World Cup 2019 Match 39

first_imgSri Lanka will face West Indies in Match 39 of ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 at the Riverside Cricket Stadium in Chester-le-Street on Monday.Sri Lanka Cricket Team had a very poor run of performances before a 20-run win over England pumped life in their campaign. However, nine-wicket defeat against South Africa jeopardized their further chances in the tournament.Sri Lanka are placed seventh on the points table with six points from seven matches and will need to win their remaining two games besides hoping for favourable outcomes in England and Pakistan’s remaining fixtures.The Jason Holder-led West Indies, on the other hand, have managed just one win from seven outings while one match was washed out. With only three points in their kitty, the two-time former champions have nothing to lose and will aim to finish on a high and spoil Sri Lanka’s slim chances of advancing to the semifinals.BatsmenKusal Perera: the left-handed opener has only made 191 runs from his 5 matches but leads his side in terms of the strike-rate and thus becomes an automatic selection.Chris Gayle should be the next one in your team for sure. The big-hitting West Indian opener hasn’t been at his best in the tournament so far with 200 runs from seven games but it becomes very difficult to overlook a batsman like Chris Gayle when making a Dream11 team as he can take apart any bowling lineup on his day.Avishka Fernando has had good starts against England and South Africa and he should be your batsman at No 3. Shimron Hetmyer would be a good choice at No.4 as the young West Indian has all the talent in the world and is dangerous on his day. He is averaging over 37 in this tournament.advertisementWicketkeeperShai Hope should be your automatic choice for wicket-keeper as he has scored 192 runs with an average of 32 for the Windies.All-roundersCarlos Brathwaite should be the first all-rounder in your team as he showed his class with the bat against New Zealand when he almost pulled off a miracle with his maiden hundred but sadly his knock went in vain.Thisara Perera can be your other all-rounder in the team with his ability to strike big when required with the bat and also pick up wickets.BowlersLasith Malinga seems the first name in your bowling department. Malinga showed glimpses of his heyday against England with 4 wickets to his name and rattle any batting line-up on his day.Sheldon Cottrell has been fast and furious for the Windies and provided a lot of wickets for them with the new ball. He has picked 11 wickets from 7 games at 25.45 which also includes a four-wicket haul against New Zealand. Isuru Udana and Oshane Thomas can be next two picks for your dream 11 team.Sri Lanka vs West Indies Dream11 suggested Playing XI: Kusal Perera (vice-captain), Chris Gayle, Avishka Fernando, Shimron Hetmyer, Shai Hope, Carlos Brathwaite(captain), Thisara Perera, Lasith Malinga, Sheldon Cottrell, Isuru Udana and Oshane Thomas.Squads:West Indies: Chris Gayle, Sunil Ambris, Shai Hope(w), Nicholas Pooran, Shimron Hetmyer, Jason Holder(c), Carlos Brathwaite, Fabian Allen, Kemar Roach, Sheldon Cottrell, Oshane Thomas, Evin Lewis, Darren Bravo, Ashley Nurse, Shannon GabrielSri Lanka: Dimuth Karunaratne(c), Kusal Perera(w), Avishka Fernando, Kusal Mendis, Angelo Mathews, Dhananjaya de Silva, Jeevan Mendis, Thisara Perera, Isuru Udana, Suranga Lakmal, Lasith Malinga, Lahiru Thirimanne, Jeffrey Vandersay, Milinda Siriwardana, Kasun RajithaAlso Read | Sri Lanka vs West Indies, World Cup 2019: Weather updates in Chester-le-Street todayAlso See:last_img read more

2014 Media Supplier Perspective Part 1

first_imgADVANTAGE COMPUTING SYSTEMSCindy MikolMarketing Director 1. What are your clients saying is their top priority this year and for 2014? Consolidating, outsourcing—we are a fulfillment software business so it’s a little different than some of these other vendors. They want to try to get more functionality in one place. They kind of want one stop shopping. More people are asking us can you just do everything. They don’t want to have a server and hardware people. They want someone to provide it soup to nuts. That’s what we are hearing.2. Tell us why you’re bullish on magazine media. We are trying to be bullish. We are working really hard to adapt to the changes in the industry and it looks like we can do it. It looks to us that there will still be a place for our kind of software—at least for the near future. I don’t know beyond that what is going to happen to the industry, but I don’t think it’s going to go away. We are certainly are seeing less new business opportunities than we have in the last five years, but business is still good and we are getting new clients. Unfortunately a lot of them are in Europe, but that’s ok. The clients are a lot more global. We have to be bullish on it. It’s our life blood!3. What trend or development was most significant in 2013?Significant not in a good way was the drying up of advertising in the business-to-business market. That just cut off a whole area of clients for us. But people want more business intelligence and we work to provide information on that. That’s a trend.LITLE & COJames KeoghBusiness Development Representative1. What are your clients saying is their top priority this year and for 2014? It’s too early to say that. It’s kind of hard to answer that. 2. Tell us why you’re bullish on magazine media. The publishing industry has a lot of subscription and recurring billing and we as a payment processor that specializes in pay commerce and helping clients with recurring billing with value added services that mitigate risk of losing transaction and publishing is a good niche for us because they have a lot of subscription models and we can help maximize their return on investment.3. What trend or development was most significant in 2013?The push to go digital; the continued push I guess I would say.SUPERIOR MEDIA SOLUTIONSBill WalkerCEO1.What are your clients saying is their top priority this year and for 2014? They need to figure out how to balance their legacy business and their digital business. They are really excited about how Superior Media Solutions is helping them do so.2. Tell us why you’re bullish on magazine media. It’s in my blood. I have been around it for so many years. My wife is the president and COO of Vance publishing and I am a believer.3. What trend or development was most significant in 2013?[It’s] the trend toward mobile, which in the magazine business means more tablet than smart phone. And the ability to expand the content that’s deliverable—integrating not only data, but other functions—functionality I should say.ATTIVIOKarthik Chelladurai1. What are your clients saying is their top priority this year and for 2014? Actually we are here today to know their top priorities. We don’t know yet. I think there are certain areas where we can really add value like being able to monitor a brand’s intelligence—the information that is positively or negatively impacting a given brand, or being able to monitor a personality in the unstructured world of social media. Or how to you keep a handle on things since there are so many tweets and blogs that spread very fast.2. Tell us why you’re bullish on magazine media. We are bullish because there is a big transition to the digital moment. The digital consumption is happening because of the tablets and other devices that are in everyone’s hands. The consumption is happening and to be able to give them a personal experience when they consume digital publishing, that requires a lot of technology to provide that experience and this opens new opportunities for software companies like ours which brings disparate information together on one dashboard, so we are extremely bullish on the industry.
3. What trend or development was most significant in 2013?The one thing that we are seeing a lot of is the ability to get a handle on social media. A company’s perception is good or bad just by people tweeting or writing about them. How do you keep a handle on that? In publishing I think that is a very big deal. 
THE MAGAZINE MANAGER, MIRABEL TECHNOLOGIESAndy Balch Vice President, Sales and Marketing1. What are your clients saying is their top priority this year and for 2014? They are very interested in digital solutions and executing the multiple digital disseminating of their content and being able to do that with the resources on hand and trying to get some revenue out of it.
2. Tell us why you’re bullish on magazine media. Publishers have all the credibility in the world with their brands and their products and there is an opportunity to reach a broader audience whatever the platform is.
3. What trend or development was most significant in 2013?I would say the proliferation of mobile devices and being able to connect off of systems with tablets and smart phones and enabling the sales team to be so much more productive.
INQURY MANAGEMENT SYSTEMSMarc HighbloomVice President and General Manager1. What are your clients saying is their top priority this year and for 2014?For what we do I would say its lead generation.2. Tell us why you’re bullish on magazine media. We’re not! Magazines have to do a better job. We were just talking about how Google changed up how they do their site and content is king, so if you are a large publisher and you have great content you are ok. But for everybody who is a small business now, Google doesn’t care about your key words any more; they care about your content. Magazines need to do a better job at providing content online and building their brand.3. What trend or development was most significant in 2013?For us it would be reinventing ourselves and providing more services for the magazine clients that are out there and integrating with other technologies that are more advanced. It’s keeping pace. We reinvented our systems and for the directories that we build for our clients we went out of house and integrated with more advanced third party systems. You can’t just build a single platform any more you will get killed. You have to integrate with Google, DoubleClick, and all these other technologies; otherwise you are dead in the water.CUMMINGS PrintingMark NakosSales Manager1. What are your clients saying is their top priority this year and for 2014? I would say the top priority is looking to monetize their online/ digital presence.2. Tell us why you’re bullish on magazine media. There is no substitute for good content. Readers and customers are thirsty for good content.3. What trend or development was most significant in 2013?It kind of ties into the first question; people are still searching for that magic bullet to make all the capital that they are investing with their online presence and trying to capture revenue from that. It’s the conundrum. People are throwing a lot of money at the space and not really getting a return for it.MERIT DIRECTDanielle ZaborskiVice President, Data & Media Services1. What are your clients saying is their top priority this year and for 2014? They want smarter marketing. Everyone is vying for the same marketing dollar, so they have to be very smart in how they are spending those dollars.2. Tell us why you’re bullish on magazine media. With many publications ceasing, it’s a different atmosphere. There are fewer players in the game and the smaller players are a little more vulnerable in terms of ad spends and exposure in the market place. The competition is fierce. It’s a different environment, but it is always going to be a viable channel. A lot of publishers are going online, but publishing is not going anywhere. It may shift to a digital forum, but it is by no means dying.3. What trend or development was most significant in 2013?Again, going back to digital, I think a lot of major publishers and smaller niche publications are trying to transition people to a digital version or shifting completely to an online only model—obviously with the mobile units being key. All industry data show that mobile and tablet readership is up and that is something that all smart publishers will key into in order to keep their business viable moving forward.
MEICraig RothSenior Vice President, Sales1. What are your clients saying is their top priority this year and for 2014?They are still transitioning to digital.2. Tell us why you’re bullish on magazine media. We are bullish on the media in general. We don’t look at them as magazines, we look at them as part of the whole communications market place. They are all community experts and they are all becoming media agnostic and we are a supplier to that initiative. Thankfully we are very successful and our clients by default are very successful.3. What trend or development was most significant in 2013?I think the acceptance that information doesn’t have to be in the form of a piece of paper.DIGARATIKevin KennedyVice President1. What are your clients saying is their top priority this year and for 2014? I would say the two major challenges that we are seeing that people want to solve are: Number one, how to you monetize things appropriately? And the second challenge would be, how do you distribute to multiple devices like your computer, your tablet, your smart phone, without having to use three different solutions to do that? Can I distribute to all those platforms from one place and then monetize across those platforms?2. Tell us why you’re bullish on magazine media. When I think about magazines I think about content. I think in terms of content rather than just in terms of magazines. It’s a point of gathering that will always appeal to like-minded people. I am still bullish on the way of consuming content in the way of a magazine is still going to be the way of the future. But we have to continue to evolve in how we distribute that content and get it into the hands of people and allow them to consume it in ways that are convenient for them.3. What trend or development was most significant in 2013?It’s hard to say because there are too many things going on at the same time—better ways of distributing content on mobile devices. It leads back to those challenges. I think the trend is monetizing on platforms like mobile.WRIGHTS MEDIAMichelle WolfNew Business Development1. What are your clients saying is their top priority this year and for 2014?The top priority is to generate more revenue through existing assets.2. Tell us why you’re bullish on magazine media. What better place is there for people who are creating content, are protective of their brand and who better know the value of their brand? That’s a perfect market for us. We work with content creators. They are well aware of the value of their brand and how that brand can be leveraged to create extra revenue.
3. What trend or development was most significant in 2013?For the 1400 brands that we represent, it’s taking those existing lists. Publishers are finally realizing not to give away those assets and to monetize them. The editorial is for the reader; the brand is for the marketer, really. We have gone from ancillary revenue to substantial revenues for a lot of our publishers and that’s a big deal.REALMATCHRod GarciaInside Sales1. What are your clients saying is their top priority this year and for 2014? Creating new revenue.2. Tell us why you’re bullish on magazine media. We find that it has a readership that is very loyal and they haven’t really begun to monetize their audience. I also think with the shift to mobile there is an audience shift.3. What trend or development was most significant in 2013?The shift to pay for performance model, the evolution of e recruiting has changed dramatically from the inception of newspapers. It shifted from offline to online. You had your newspapers and job board and then you had your job aggregators and Linkedin and now you have more of a pay for performance model where your employers are trying to gage on one specific avenue to capture their job seeker audience rather than to pay for 20 different licenses and have it all over the place.IPACESETTERSKeith StrehleAccount Executive1. What are your clients saying is their top priority this year and for 2014? Primarily [it’s] price point, making sure of quality and also concerns about the new DPA regulations.2. Tell us why you’re bullish on magazine media. We think there’s excellent opportunity for growth with the ability for email marketing. 3. What trend or development was most significant in 2013?The changes in DPA regulations and also the FCC wireless regulations.KNOWLEDGE MARKETINGSuzanne DunhamRegional Director of Sales1. What are your clients saying is their top priority this year and for 2014? It’s Integrated data—the ability to look at their disparate data across all their different audiences. If you think about how Suzanne attends the MediaNext conference, she also receives FOLIO: magazine, she also subscribes to the e-newsletter. The problem is all of that data exists in silos today and they are trying to figure out the best way to put them together. Looking at the demographics from a behavioral and textural standpoint and then enabling everybody across their organization—from marketing to sales to editors—to really leverage unified data and create a more stable and better partnership with their advertisers.2. Tell us why you’re bullish on magazine media. Because, believe it or not, we look at it as one of the most innovative industries out there. If you think about how traditional magazine publishers went through a stage of digitizing their brands, they have gone from transforming their sales mythology, their partnerships and their technologies, going from being circulation centric to audience centric and that is a sweet spot for us because we can help publishers to look at their data differently and having a unified data base, which is different than its always been. So it’s a great spot to be in.3. What trend or development was most significant in 2013?I think it’s similar to these other two areas, the transformation in marketing methodologies [and] sales methodologies. I think in 2013 everyone is going from talking about how to leverage their audience differently to actually doing something about it. So we are seeing that as a trend, taking action to integrate data and leveraging their gold mine of an audience in a different way—a full 360 degree profile of their audience members.FRY COMMUNICATIONSCheri StrykerSales Team Leader1. What are your clients saying is their top priority this year and for 2014? I would say cost savings and further revenue.2. Tell us why you’re bullish on magazine media. I don’t think print is going to go away just like radio didn’t go away. I think that Fry Communications has a lot of sexy print to offer and we are continually investing in our company to make brands more attractive.3. What trend or development was most significant in 2013?We have something new. We have the Komori cover press. It’s one of a kind in the United States. I think it’s a big door opener for our company. It does special effects with your printing all in one pass. It does dye cutting, embossing, spot UV, foil and it really has helped our publishers stand out in the newsstand area and also in advertising.OMEDADon RossClient Service Manager1. What are your clients saying is their top priority this year and for 2014? From my viewpoint it is how to manage all the various data that they are getting from all their various silos and products, whether it is magazines, newsletters, webinars, website activity and behaviors. How do I manage that?2. Tell us why you’re bullish on magazine media.Content is still king. And magazines are just one delivery method, but it’s still a reliable one.3. What trend or development was most significant in 2013?You are probably asking the wrong person, I really don’t have a good answer for that right now.PUBLISHERS PRESSDavid MarxRegional Sales Manager1. What are your clients saying is their top priority this year and for 2014?Not specifically just to do better. They want to attract more ads, more efficiencies and look for additional revenue streams.2. Tell us why you’re bullish on magazine media. We are very bullish on the industry. It is still the preeminent media to deliver content.3. What trend or development was most significant in 2013?Looking for additional revenue streams using their content.LESTERLisa PistilliDirector, New Business Development1. What are your clients saying is their top priority this year and for 2014? It’s building circulation and audience development and engagement within their own budgets, while complying with current audit regulations and government regulations.2. Tell us why you’re bullish on magazine media. The subscribers still want to read content that is relevant and what I am seeing here is to getting editors and publishers to provide relevant and up to date content for their readers.3. What trend or development was most significant in 2013?The DPA changes and rules and the TCPA legislation were the most significant development—TCPA being far more important.NXTBOOK MEDIAMarcus GrimmMarketing Director 1. What are your clients saying is their top priority this year and for 2014? Cross platform publishing. The want to take their content to as many platforms as possible so that they can deliver audience to their advertisers and maximize the value to their advertisers.2. Tell us why you’re bullish on magazine media. We are bullish. Magazine publishers in particular—the niche magazine publishers—provide tremendous focused value for their advertisers. And while the Internet is a great way to do brand spending, the reality is that those advertisers who serve a niche business (and there are a lot of them) do best if they can find a magazine that serves their core audiences.3. What trend or development was most significant in 2013?I think that most publishers made the transition to mobile and tablet devices. Cross platform publishing has definitely hit the main stream.
