first_img Top Stories The Arizona Cardinals have many options with the fifth overall selection: they could choose the potential shutdown corner Patrick Peterson, the possible future sack-master Von Miller or address the QB depth chart hole with one of the signal callers that may fall to them.Or they could take advantage of another team being enamored with one of these aforementioned prospects, trade down and accumulate more draft picks.And when Cardinals General Manger Rod Graves joined Sports 620 KTAR’s Doug and Wolf Wednesday morning, he touched on that very subject. Nevada officials reach out to D-backs on potential relocation “I think at this point that we’re prepared for anything,” Graves said. “Many times, teams will call us asking ‘are you willing to listen’ and we say ‘yes we are.’”It’s a simple idea: if the Cardinals aren’t in love with any of the draftees available at their slot, put the pick up for sale and see what you can get for one of the teams that are rumored to be looking to move up like the Cowboys (#9), Washington (#10), Houston (#11) or Atlanta (#27).But is the value of the number five pick in the draft to the Cardinals?“We have some idea what that compensation needs to be based on [what players are available] at the time that we get ready to pick and based on the historical evidence of past drafts,” Graves said.

Rep Hughes bill calling for better reporting on veterans care gets Senate

first_img09Nov Rep. Hughes bill calling for better reporting on veterans’ care gets Senate approval Categories: Hughes News,News The state Senate today unanimously approved legislation which would require veterans agencies to report to the state House and Senate on key topics relating to veterans health care in the state facilities.“The oversight and improved care of our state’s heroes is a priority to everyone in the state House and Senate, as was proven by today’s vote,” said Rep. Hughes, who sponsored House Bill 5639. “We must have consistent updates from the Michigan Veterans Affairs Agency and Department of Military and Veterans Affairs to make sure the long-term problems at the Grand Rapids Home for Veterans are addressed quickly. We must do everything possible to ensure the health and safety of our veterans who sacrificed so much for our country.”Specifically, HB 5639 requires the state veterans agencies to detail information on staffing levels, number of patient complaints and staff responses, distribution of pharmaceutical drugs, how patient funds are allocated and number of resident deaths to House and Senate committees no later than Jan. 1, April 1, July 1 and Oct. 1 of each year.The state has two veterans’ care facilities, in Grand Rapids and at the D.J. Jacobetti Home in Marquette, but HB 5639 allows for reporting at any future buildings.“We’ve been told that the awful conditions at the Home for Veterans, which were shared in the legislative Auditor General’s report last February, are being addressed,” said Rep. Hughes, vice-chair of the House Committee on Military and Veterans’ Affairs. “This bill will make certain we know about key details of veterans’ care and can address any related issues in the Legislature.”Today’s Senate vote today follows a unanimous vote in the state House in early June. Rep. Hughes’ legislation advances to Gov. Rick Snyder for his consideration.last_img read more

What Do Tax Day Rallies Say about the Prospects for Trumps Tax

first_imgShare8TweetShareEmail8 Shares“1040-US Tax Return.” Credit: 401kcalculator.orgApril 15, 2017; CNBCAccording to TaxMarch.org, around 200 Tax Day rallies and marches took place on Saturday, April 15th. The rallies were a forum to draw attention to the fact that the nation has still not seen its president’s tax returns, despite the fact that he intends to take up tax reform as his next big challenge. The issue of the president’s no-show on his tax returns touches on a variety of accountability issues. Did he pay his fair share? How much business has he done—and is he doing—with foreign governments with which this country has delicate relationships, like Russia? What would his tax returns say about his belief in personal civic responsibility and a fair economy? Presidents and many presidential candidates have released their tax returns voluntarily since Richard Nixon initiated the practice in the 1970s.Trump refused to share his returns based on the presence of an ongoing audit, even though the IRS has said that should pose no problem. Ezra Levin, executive director of Indivisible, one of a number of high-profile progressive groups behind the marches, said, “It’s about whether or not the president of the United States is acting in the interest of the American people or whether he’s lining his own pockets or serving another master…Congress has the power to find out and they’ve used it before.”President Trump’s response to the rallies—delivered, as usual, by tweet—was to wonder who was bankrolling them. “Someone should look into who paid for the small organized rallies yesterday.” He dismissed the concerns of the protesters as those of people still hung up on the presidential election. “I did what was an almost an [sic] impossible thing to do for a Republican—easily won the Electoral College! Now Tax Returns are brought up again?”It shouldn’t be a surprise that the president’s tax returns are being brought up, as we are about to start a debate over taxes. In fact, the move seems to be on point.—Ruth McCambridgeShare8TweetShareEmail8 Shareslast_img read more

first_imgBrian SullivanPay TV operator Sky Deutschland expects to gain between 400,000 and 450,000 subscribers and full-year EBITDA in the range of €80-110 million in the new financial year after posting strong numbers for the quarter to June.Sky increased its overall direct subscribers by 82,000 in the quarter, taking its total to 3,813,000. Premium HD customers increased by 130,000 to 2,236,000, while Sky+ customers increased by 106,000 to 1,681,000.The subscriber growth was boosted by the earlier than expected migration of former Deutsche Telekom Ligatotal football subscribers to the Sky platform. Sky also achieved the lowest churn in its history, with a quarterly annualised rate of 7.7% and a 12-month rolling rate of 10.1%.A total of 451,000 customer now take Sky’s multiroom offer, the Sky Zweitcarte or second smartcard, up from 393,000 a year ago.Revenues increased by 14% to €428 million for the quarter, while EBITDA rose by 23% to €45 million.The company has changed its reporting period to run from July to June, taking it line with 21st Century Fox sister companies.

In the past quarter net subscriber growth increased strongly, and customer loyalty hit new record levels with churn rates that are the best in our company’s history,” said CEO Brian Sullivan.“Many exclusive premieres of outstanding series and blockbuster movies in the quarter – every single one also available on-demand via the new Sky Go, which is now free for all Sky customers – confirm that Sky is the clear market leader across all platforms and genres. And with the return of action in the Bundesliga and Champions League following on from the incredible performance of the German National Team in the World Cup, we couldn’t be more excited about the year ahead.”last_img read more

US streaming service Hulu has swooped for exclusiv

first_imgUS streaming service Hulu has swooped for exclusive movies from premium pay network Epix after the latter’s agreement with Netflix ended with no new deal.All new Epix theatrical releases and original programmes will be made available 90 days on Hulu after the pay TV window opens.For Hulu, the deal is significant as Epix titles previously went out through rival Netflix. Hulu has been bolstering its film catalogue in the past year, scoring deals with the likes of IFC Films.Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1, Mission: Impossible Rogue Nation, Interstellar and The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge Out of Water will be available in coming months.Films including Hunger Games: Catching Fire, Transformers: Age of Extinction, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Star Trek: Into Darkness, World War Z and Wolf of Wall Street will be available at launch.“This is a landmark deal for Hulu and it marks a huge expansion for our offering of premium programming,” said Hulu’s senior VP and head of content, Craig Erwich.“Hulu already offers some of the best and biggest titles in television programming, but our subscribers have been asking us for more, and more recent, big movies. We listened,” he added. “Through this new deal with Epix, we are proud to now be able to offer a huge selection of the biggest blockbusters and premium films.”Netflix claimed it had allowed its Epix deal to lapse as its customers wanted “newer movies”, which its push into original filmmaking would provide.“It will take us time to build a robust slate of original movies, but we’re hard at work on it with such great stars and directors as Brad Pitt, Ricky Gervais, Judd Apatow, Angelina Jolie, Sofia Coppola and Adam Sandler,” Netflix’s chief content officer, Ted Sarandos wrote in a blog post.“While many of these movies are popular, they are also widely available on cable and other subscription platforms at the same time as they are on Netflix and subject to the same drawn out licensing periods. Through our original films and some innovative licensing arrangements with the movie studios, we are aiming to build a better movie experience for you.”“We know some of you will be disappointed by the expiration of the Epix movies,” he added. “Our goal is to provide great movies and TV series for all tastes, that are only available on Netflix. We’re confident you’ll enjoy our ever-improving catalogue.”Netflix still has film deals with Sony Pictures Animation, Universal Pictures and DreamWorks Animation, and will become the exclusive US SVOD home of Disney movies from next year.last_img read more

Shahrzad Rafati BroadbandTV the MCN owned by RTL

first_imgShahrzad RafatiBroadbandTV, the MCN owned by RTL Group, wants to build on its acquisition of YoBoHo, the outfit behind YouTube kids channel HooplaKidz, to create “the next Disney”, according to Shahrzad Rafati, founder and CEO of BroadbandTV.Speaking at the MIPCOM programming market this morning, Rafati said that international expansion is a big part of BroadbandTV’s strategy, and that the acquisition of HooplaKidz is to create a strong ecosystem within the kids and family market. “We wanted to add our expertise and complement what they brought to the table to create the next Disney,” she said.BroadbandTV acquired YoBoHo in April this year.She cited the example of Disney’s acquisition of Maker Studios and said that creating a “content engine” was vital. Content creators also need to become technology companies to work out the distribution piece. Particularly to mobile.Rafati said that there were a number of key lessons content providers had to take on board to make money. One is to find new ways of creating revenue from content such as creating retail stores as BroadbandTV has done. “You also need to think horizontally, because if something works in one market you need to be able quickly to take it to others,” she said.Rafati said that, as an MCN, owning and operating your own brands is “only part of the game”. She said that BroadbandTV owned 100% of its own original content but that “a strong strategy is about connecting content” across content from multiple sources, including originals and wholly owned and operated content.As an example, Rafati said that BroadbandTV had teamed up with The Huffington Post in July to create Outspeak, a citizen journalism network and build a “strong ecosystem for citizen journalism” that is different from “the push model” adopted by companies such as Vice Media.last_img read more
