Joe Bellino released the following statement tonight in response to the governor’s State of the State address:“The people of Michigan need more than canned promises – they need results. We need to build up our skilled workforce – with training, with jobs, and with social supports, like opioid addiction care, that will put more of our kids in high-quality careers at home.“Tonight the governor missed an opportunity to address the opioid epidemic plaguing many Michigan communities and families. It’s important to me that Michigan families know their lawmakers are listening and responding to their needs. Opioid abuse affects families across Michigan and I want the state to be on the side of protecting people’s wellbeing and offering helping hands where needed. We have to ask ourselves, what’s the cost of doing nothing?“The toll this crisis is taking on our families and young people is too high.

The modernisation of Frances digitalterrestrial

Posted On Aug 6 2019 by

first_imgThe modernisation of France’s digital-terrestrial TV platform is necessary and a revamped platform could be delivered in time for the Paris Olympics in 2024, according to French media regulator the CSA.According to a report on the future of the audiovisual industry by the CSA Lab, the DTT platform remains vital in view of the pay nature of alternative platforms and the fact that DTT is the only platform to cover the entire national territory.The CSA report said that the principle of windowing rules and production obligations placed on audiovisual service providers should be maintained to assure the creation of programmes that were independent, locally relevant and which addressed diversity and plurality.However, it said that these rules should be revised and harmonised, in particular to create a level playing field between linear and non-linear actors.The report also called for rules to be introduced covering the neutrality and openness of boxes. It said that these rules would not be intended to prevent innovation or rule out all forms of exclusivity, which could help stimulate the creation of quality content.The regulator said that advertising should be subject to co-regulation by the industry and regulators, but accepted that an easing of restrictive rules appeared to be necessary to enable broadcasters and service providers to remain competitive.The CSA called for closer alignment between regulatory bodies to meet overall goals.last_img read more


Telefónica has denied doing any deal with online T

Posted On Aug 6 2019 by

first_imgTelefónica has denied doing any deal with online TV provider Opensport for Champions League football rights after the latter claimed that it had struck an agreement with the telco to transmit coverage of the tournament as part of its streaming sports offering.Telefónica told the El Español business newspaper that it had agreed to provide its El Partizado channel, which covers key matches from Spain’s top-tier domestic league, but that it had not struck any deal to provide Champions League coverage.Opensport has said it will offer “all football” for a monthly fee of €19.99, indicating that it will provide La Liga, the Champions League and Europa Ligue, Spanish second-tier football channel La Liga 1|2|3 and the best matches from the English Premier League, German Bundesliga and French Ligue 1 over the web.According to newspaper El País, the OTT TV provider has said it will offer three tiers of subscription – El Partizado and La Liga 1|2|3 for €7.99 and, from September, a Plan Partizado + Champions tier, which will also include the Bundesliga and Ligue 1 competitions, for €15.99. According to the newspaper, the streamer has also said it will provide a Plan Todo Fútbol offering including La Liga and the European competitions fro €19.99.However, Opensport is currently only promoting its inclusion of Telefónica’s Movistar Partizado channel and Mediapro’s BeIN Liga channel on its homepage.Telefónica has agreed a distribution deal with telco Orange for its Champions League and Europa League channel, and is currently in talks with Mediapro to provide the service as part of the latter’s streaming offering BeIN Connect.Both Telefónica and Orange have deliberately targeted Vodafone’s customers base following the operator’s decision not to offer the Movistar football line-up. Howevere an online offering – whether from Opensport or BeIN Connect – could provide a potential alternative for football fans who subscribe to Vodafone’s telecom and TV services other than switching provider.Earlier this year, Spanish regulator the CNMC approved the dropping of moves to sanction Mediapro for abuse of its position in premium football rights relating to the Champions League following a complaint from Opensport, after a compromise deal was reached. The OTT TV provider had claimed that Mediapro was abusing its dominant position in the premium pay TV sector thanks to its control of Champions League and La Liga rights, aired on the BeIN Sports and BeIN La Liga channels.The dropping of the case was conditional on Mediapro making its pay TV services available to OTT TV players including Opensport on fair and non-discriminatory terms, equivalent to those already enjoyed by traditional pay TV operators including Telefónica and which take into account the scale of operations of new OTT players. However, Mediapro subsequently sold its rights to the Champions League to Telefónica, leaving it to third parties to strike a deal with the telco for redistribution of its Champions League service for the current season.last_img read more


DataGrail Research Reveals 70 of Privacy Professionals Agree Their Systems Will Not

Posted On Jul 24 2019 by

first_imgThousands of Manual Processes Increase Risk of Human Error, Strain Productivity; Half of Companies Missed GDPR Compliance Deadline–Most Plan New Hires for RegulationsDataGrail, the privacy management platform purpose-built for the European (GDPR), Californian (CCPA) and impending privacy regulations, announced the publication of “The Age of Privacy: The Cost of Continuous Compliance.” The report benchmarks the operational impact of the European General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA), as well as sharing insights into lessons learned and attitudes toward privacy regulations.“Businesses without a European presence were not impacted by the GDPR. However, with the CCPA fast approaching, US businesses without GDPR are experiencing the same challenges that multinational companies did with GDPR,” said Daniel Barber, Co-founder & CEO, DataGrail. “Most companies reported taking at least seven months to achieve GDPR readiness, but now with CCPA only seven months away, they realize their systems will not support CCPA and other forthcoming privacy regulations. Companies will need to integrate and operationalize their privacy management to avoid the time-consuming and error-prone manual processes to comply with these regulations.”Marketing Technology News: Everflow releases SmartSwitch to Automate Optimization and Fraud Prevention for Performance and Partner MarketingDataGrail surveyed more than 300 U.S. privacy management decision makers; including IT, operations, security, legal, and risk and compliance professionals. Key findings from “The Age of Privacy: The Cost of Continuous Compliance” include:GDPR Compliance Took Longer Than ExpectedOnly half of companies achieved self-reported compliance before the May 25, 2018 deadline.Most companies took seven months or longer to achieve readiness.Even GDPR Readiness is CostlyTwo-thirds of companies assigned dozens, or even hundreds, of employees to manage GDPR compliance. Based on survey results, it’s likely the average organization spent 2000 – 4000 hours in meetings preparing for GDPR — more than a full year of work.Half of privacy management decision makers spent at least 80 hours personally preparing for GDPR, and another 80 hours to sustain compliance — also a full month of work.Privacy Rights Requests Are Time-Consuming and Error-ProneHalf of companies use manual processes to manage GDPR privacy rights requests, such as the right to be forgotten.Two-thirds of companies have processed at least 100 requests in the past year, across dozens of business systems and third-party services, and most of them have at least 25 employees involved in request management. That’s thousands of touch points with the potential to introduce human error — the overwhelming majority of privacy professionals are working to reduce the risk of manual error in these requests.Marketing Technology News: New Study Reveals Positive Impact of Page Speed on Google RankingsCCPA Compliance Programs Face the Same Challenges as GDPR ProgramsTwo-thirds of privacy professionals believe it will take less than six months to prepare for CCPA, even though most reported it took seven months or longer to prepare for GDPR. Even worse, technology adoption rates for CCPA are lower than they were for GDPR — companies are primarily training employees to manage privacy regulations — increasing cost and risk of ongoing compliance.Companies Will Be Challenged by the Future of Privacy RegulationsMost companies are approaching privacy regulations on a case-by-case basis; two-thirds of privacy professionals agree the systems they have put into place will not support new regulations.90% of companies plan to hire at least three new employees in the next two years to manage privacy regulations, but only one-third of companies are automatically updating their data inventory.“It is evident from this research that most companies still rely on piecemeal technology solutions and manual processes, when they should be turning to privacy management solutions purpose-built for privacy regulations,” said Barber. “As companies turn their attention from GDPR to CCPA and beyond, they must operationalize sustained compliance to reduce risk, provide transparency for their customers, and control operational costs.”Marketing Technology News: 51% of ‘Hungry Searchers’ Choose Restaurants by Food Type as Journeys Go Mobile DataGrail Research Reveals 70% of Privacy Professionals Agree Their Systems Will Not Support New Privacy Regulations PRNewswireMay 20, 2019, 3:16 pmMay 20, 2019 CCPADaniel BarberDataGrailGDPRMarketing TechnologyNewsprivacy management solutions Previous ArticleTravel Tech Providers Gimmonix and Trip Sciences Strike a Strategic Partnership to Deliver Travel Industry’s First White-label Native Mobile Solution for HotelsNext ArticleMetadata.io Wins TiE50 Award for Breakthrough AI-powered Account Based Marketing Platformlast_img read more


Consumers arent as Inspired as Marketers About GDPR Principles and Data Privacy

As we inch toward the first GDPR anniversary, market analysts and Data Privacy trend watchers are constantly churning data on GDPR impact. They provide insights on how GDPR transformed the data industry globally -for businesses and for consumers. In an interesting data research on GDPR Principles, Ogury found that less than 10% (only 8%) of consumers globally feel they have a better understanding of how companies use their data since GDPR’s introduction.Ogury also found these interesting trend on what consumers truly understand about GDPR compliance.52% of consumers globally still don’t understand how their data is used after reading consent forms and privacy policies.When given a clear and fair choice about which data to share and to what purpose, 7 out of 10 consumers globally choose to share their data rather than paying to access content.In addition, roughly half of consumers (52% globally) answered that they still do not understand how their data is used. This, despite acknowledging they have read Data Privacy Policy at various websites. This was even higher in countries where GDPR has been implemented for one year, where 58% of respondents from European countries do not understand how companies use their data.Ogury conducted a survey of 287,571 consumers, examining attitudes towards mobile marketing, advertising and data use.Coinciding with the first anniversary of GDPR, the survey is the largest of its kind to date. Its findings reveal that consumers are still mostly in the dark when it comes to how their data is collected, stored and used.Data Ecosystem Privacy Has Reached a New Level of MaturityIn a recent blog, LoopMe’s Stephen Upstone wrote, “We need to be honest with ourselves: the race to become GDPR compliant before the deadline was no easy task. AdTech providers were planning several years ahead of time – and even last minute we had clients coming to us with lots of questions.”Co-Founder and CEO of Ogury, Thomas Pasquet, commented, “GDPR has not been taken seriously enough by organizations. These might be disheartening numbers for lawmakers and regulators, who will have no doubt hoped for a far greater level of understanding from the very consumers that GDPR is designed to protect. But, marketers should similarly take heed of this admission by users that the message is not getting through in sufficient numbers.”How does GDPR impact US Consumers?According to another report by nCipher,  Personal Data Privacy Is Hot-Button Issue in America, Where Distrust Runs High! Yes, GDPR Principles in the US data market is a very tough challenge for Marketing teams. The nCipher survey data indicates that protecting personal information has become of paramount importance for many Americans. More than half (52%) of Americans said data privacy is important to them. Forty-one percent said protecting their personal information is their top concern.“Thirty-two percent said safeguarding their personal data is as important to them as their own physical protection. Six percent said only protecting their family is more important than protecting their personal data.” – nCipher SurveyWhy?Only 4% of the respondents trust organizations to do what they say they’ll do when it comes to not sharing their personal data28% said nothing makes them trust that their personal data will not be shared61% of Americans are not OK with some organizations sharing their private dataGDPR Awareness Shockingly Low; But, Are Organizations Still Failing Consumers?Consumers are yet to fully understand how GDPR Fines and GDPR Principles protect their interest from data-preying companies.The study’s findings indicate that businesses have not properly instituted a requirement for explicit and informed user consent for data collection and usage. 78% of users globally don’t read consent notices in their entirety.When asked whether they felt their understanding of how companies used their data had improved since GDPR came into effect, the majority of respondents answered “No”. What’s more, consumer awareness of GDPR itself is still low. In the UK, 59% of respondents said their understanding was no better than before the law came into effect, while a further 29% said that they didn’t even know what GDPR was. Amongst the European countries surveyed, an average of 39% of respondents were unaware of GDPR.Thomas added, “Businesses need to deeply understand what GDPR is and in turn educate consumers around the importance of data sharing; this level of consumer education will become increasingly important across the globe. We are already seeing this level of education begin to happen in the US as we prepare for the California Consumer Protection Act (CCPA), which will go into effect on Jan. 1, 2020.”The Importance of Explicit User Consent Elie Kanaan, Ogury’s CMO, said, “The industry desperately needs to earn back consumers’ trust, by granting them a clear and fair choice and gaining their explicit consent. That means consent notices must be in plain words, published in plain sight.” He continued, “There is an opportunity to simultaneously alleviate consumer privacy concerns and increase mobile engagement – by committing to explicit, informed, and unambiguous user choice; from opting-in to customized marketing, to exercising their right to be forgotten. Unfortunately, over the past year, companies have failed to take GDPR seriously, which means there is a chance that the industry will be led to more privacy scandals and concerns in the near future.”GDPR News and Insights: OneTrust Launches Policy and Notice Management Solution to Centrally Manage and Update GDPR and CCPA Privacy Policies & DisclosuresConsumers Don’t Care About Legislations; They Care About Clarity and Fairness of ChoiceThe survey also revealed that, when given an explicit choice, 71% of respondents globally would be prepared to share data from their mobile apps and website usage as well as contact details as an alternative to paying for access to apps and online content.With regards to user choice, Kanaan, added, “The fact that 71% of mobile users globally would share their data if they know exactly what data is being collected and how it will be used, tells us clearly that consumers are willing to contribute to preserve a free internet as long as the exchange is fair and respected. It also confirms the market assumptions that drove the design of Ogury Consent Manager with Fair Choice. This product introduces three clear and fair options: accept anonymous data to be collected and used to receive customized marketing; Opt-out from sharing data and therefore receive irrelevant ads; Or pay a fair price in exchange for a marketing-free and data collection-free environment.”This survey points to the fact that it is time for a transformation globally around how advertising and marketing is done today. If businesses do not begin to take GDPR seriously, they risk major consequences through various sanctions that will be detrimental for companies not operating under the law as it stands.How to Win with GDPR and Consumer Sentiments?Businesses should enable Marketing and Sales teams to fully understand GDPR Compliance at a granular level. Employees should implement GDPR principles in their interaction with various online and mobile touchpoints. A move towards consented data sharing and advertising creates a safer environment for consumers and brands, restoring trust and integrity to the industry, and helping to create a more mature and respectful internet.To participate in our GDPR pieces, drops us a line at news@martechseries.comlast_img read more


BJP should stick to development trends a warning bell Kakade

Posted On Jul 17 2019 by

first_imgSHARE SHARE SHARE EMAIL regional elections COMMENTS COMMENTcenter_img December 11, 2018 Published on A Rajya Sabha member, who is an associate member of the BJP, Tuesday said the Assembly poll results are a ‘warning bell’ for the party ahead of the Lok Sabha elections.Sanjay Kakade, a Pune-based builder, also asked the party to introspect over the poll performance.“I am of the opinion that the BJP should stick to development agenda and not to caste (mobilisation), changing names of cities or a (Ram) temple. We need to revert to the track of development,” Kakade said. “What the BJP has been doing so far is Mandir-Masjid, changing names of cities, caste politics. Even if we win MP with a slender margin, I will call it our defeat,” Kakade said. Kakade said he was not surprised with Congress gaining decisive leads in Chhattisgarh and Rajasthan and TRS’s winning performance in Telangana, but Madhya Pradesh was a shocker.“The decisive trends in these four major states are a warning bell for us ahead of the Lok Sabha elections in 2019. If we do not learn from it, it will be difficult for us,” Kakade said.“I have personally surveyed these four states. I am not surprised with the losses in Chhattisgarh and Rajasthan. The shocking result is of Madhya Pradesh. It looks like we have deviated from the development promises made ahead of 2014 general elections,” he said. Kakade, 51, also asked BJP to introspect after the setback in the Assembly elections.“Despite having (Prime Minister Narendra) Modi, (BJP chief) Amit Shah (as star campaigners) and a strong network of RSS in Madhya Pradesh, if the performance is negative it means some introspection is required,” said the Rajya Sabha member.“There are 65 MPs from these states, of which 62 are of BJP and three are of Congress. We need to take it (results) seriously,” he said. Kakade is no stranger to controversial comments. Ahead of the results of the 2017 Gujarat Assembly elections, he had said: “Forget absolute majority, the party (BJP) will not even get enough number of seats to form the government. The Congress, on the other hand, will reach close to the majority mark.”last_img read more
