Brooks Koepka Would Have Made History Whether He Won Or Lost

While Long Island’s ostentatiously difficult public golf course chewed up the world’s best players — only six players in the 156-man field finished below par — the 29-year-old finished with an eight-under-par 272 and fought off a huge scare from Dustin Johnson — the world’s No. 1 player. With the wire-to-wire win, Koepka is the first golfer to hold back-to-back, concurrent major titles. And of the last nine championships played, the hulking West Palm Beach native has claimed four.Koepka entered Sunday with a seven-stroke lead, a lead no golfer had ever blown at the tournament after 54 holes. He nearly blew it anyway. Johnson, who has similar ball-shaping skills, uses an equally intense workout regimen and is one of Koepka’s best friends, mounted a furious comeback, firing a 69 while leading the field in strokes gained off the tee (2.32), according to Data Golf. Johnson pulled within a single stroke of the lead with three holes remaining, but bogeyed two consecutive holes to fall out of contention. Koepka rallied to stem the tide and ended his day by hoisting the Wanamaker Trophy.This was quite the departure from Thursday, when Koepka carded a course-record 63, a showcase he aptly described as “a crazy day.” With Koekpa four shots clear of the field, Las Vegas bookmakers installed him with 5-to-4 odds to win after one day of competition. He quickly made those odds seem conservative as he followed it up with a 65 to extend the lead. Paired with Tiger Woods in the opening two rounds, Koepka steamrolled golf’s prodigal son by 17 strokes across two days.Golf has become a power-driven sport, and few, if any, people on tour supply more than Koepka, who frequently appears to be taking a machete to his ball. He certainly set the standard this week, leading the field in strokes gained tee-to-green in each of the first three rounds and in total, according to Data Golf. But even that undersells how precise his irons were, as Koepka also led the tournament in strokes gained on shots approaching the green.On golf’s biggest stages, Koepka shows up to win. It makes you wonder: Why doesn’t he collect more trophies in the PGA Tour’s garden-variety events? With two non-major PGA Tour wins and one European Tour title, Koepka’s major wins now outnumber his minor ones. More than half (57.1 percent) of his career wins have come at major championships, which is a higher share than any other active golfer who has won at least two majors. For comparison, less than 18 percent of Woods’s career victories have come at majors. In most of Koepka’s victories, the entire tournament feels calculated, as though he’s playing out a simulation that he ran through a thousand times before he took the course. Get-off-your-seat moments are few and far between with Koepka, who looks as though he was engineered in a lab and delivers relentless power while leaving events largely lusterless. Some of that is because Koepka has the demeanor of a world-class poker player. Some of it is how easily he lays waste to a golf course. But on Sunday, we learned that golf’s RoboCop can still bleed. The wheels fell off, and he had to dig deep to finish off his best friend. But Koepka did just that, making history as he evolved into a new type of champion: one who’s proved he can survive.

Samsung Space Gaming Monitor has its back to the wall

Samsung At Gamescom 2019, Samsung follows up its Space Monitor with a Space Gaming brother that really sounds like an aptly named 32-inch version of the 27-inch nongaming model. They both have a 144Hz refresh rate and QHD (2,540 x 1,440) resolution, though the gaming version supports AMD FreeSync adaptive-refresh technology for synchronizing game frame rates with the display.It’s slated to ship by the end of the year, but we don’t yet know the price. Tags Share your voice 0 It’s not a very fun gaming monitor, basic black with no lighting; it basically sits there looking grim. While the stand design is clever and it’s nice to be able to pull it forward and down to find a comfortable angle, it only works directly in front of you because it can’t swivel. Nor does it seem to free up much space, since you have to move anything obstructive you’ve put in the free area if you want to pull the screen down.Samsung didn’t provide any specs, but if it’s similar to the 27-inch VA screen it’s relatively bright with an sRGB gamut — a basic but stylish entry-level model that lacks the pop of Samsung’s QLED colors.

OnePlus 7 Pro is an allrounder flagship with no compromises Review

first_imgSometimes little things can make a huge impact and it is what has made OnePlus stand out from the crowd all these years. The Chinese smartphone maker shot to fame in an unimaginably short period of time, but not without witnessing a fair share of troubles and mistakes that eventually led to admiring success. I’ve followed OnePlus from the early days of inception and watched it grow and seeing the brand today, with its sheer confidence, shows the world nothing is impossible.When I say “seeing the brand today”, I mainly refer to the kind of products OnePlus has grown to offer. Long gone are the days when I held the OnePlus One and admired that Sandstone finish that only OnePlus offered. Five years later, I’m holding the company’s best smartphone yet – OnePlus 7 Pro – in its satisfying glass beauty that has come a long way since the first handset, both in terms of class and price.You’ll rarely find a person who no longer recognises OnePlus, and the latest OnePlus 7-series has everyone excited. OnePlus officially unveiled the latest and most-anticipated flagship of the year, OnePlus 7 Pro, at an event in Bengaluru. I had the opportunity to test the most premium and priciest OnePlus smartphone every released over the past couple of days and here are my thoughts on the phone. OnePlus 7 Pro reviewIBTimes India/Sami KhanOnePlus has always demonstrated the best of its capabilities in designing the best smartphone there is to hold and look. OnePlus 7 Pro is a classy masterpiece from every angle and the company has perfected the smartphone to an unimaginable extent. That beautiful, beautiful full-screen display is truly magical and it gets 2K resolution with 90Hz refresh rate, so all those PUBG sessions will never look the same after playing it on OnePlus 7 Pro.The curved display and the curved back gives a sleek form factor to the device, which is visually appealing and great to hold. But the extra screen real estate sure makes it difficult for single hand use, but I’m willing to compromise on that for the love of a great display. The brightness of the 2K screen can blind you in a dark room, but thankfully adaptive brightness works flawlessly – best I’ve seen in phones. The colours are vibrant and lively, the screen is bright enough even when you want to use it effortlessly on a bright day. Interestingly, the sides of the screen light up beautifully when a new notification arrives. Simply loved that minimalistic touch. OnePlus 7 Pro reviewIBTimes India/Sami KhanOnePlus 7 Pro has been the flagship I’ve always wanted from OnePlus and the company has finally delivered. Better late than never. The overall design is perfect, but it is the little things that really impressed me. The earpiece on top of the display is as if it is not there – just so sleek. The alert slider and power button are on the right side and the volume buttons are on the left, all of them are within easy reach. The USB Type-C button is at the bottom, right next to the stereo. At the top, the pop-up selfie camera housing is invisible unless in use. 1/4 OnePlus 7 Pro reviewIBTimes India/Sami KhanOnePlus 7 Pro reviewIBTimes India/Sami KhanOnePlus 7 Pro reviewIBTimes India/Sami KhanOnePlus 7 Pro reviewIBTimes India/Sami KhanPreviousNextSpeaking of the camera, OnePlus 7 Pro’s triple camera setup on the nebula blue back cannot miss anyone’s attention. There’s a 48MP Sony IMX586 primary sensor with f/1.6 aperture, OIS and EIS, paired with a 16MP f/2.2 ultra-wide-angle lens covering 117 degrees and an 8MP f/2.2 lens with 3X optical zoom. This is an ideal setup for brilliant photos and I couldn’t agree more. OnePlus has finally heard the cries of millions of people and has greatly improved the camera on the OnePlus 7 Pro. 1/2 OnePlus 7 Pro reviewIBTimes India/Sami KhanOnePlus 7 Pro reviewIBTimes India/Sami KhanPreviousNextOnePlus 7 Pro photos have excellent colours, bright and vibrant, high dynamic range even in challenging light conditions and details that cannot be missed. Selfies are just as good. Although I wasn’t fully impressed with the Nightscape feature, that’s just me stretching hopes after using Google’s Night Sight and Huawei P30 Pro. OnePlus Nightscape works best when it is not pitch dark as it requires at least one light source nearby to give you a decent picture. To be fair, OnePlus 7 Pro’s nightscape feature doesn’t turn night into day as in the case of Huawei and Google phones but brightens the image to retain more details without having people guess whether it is night or day.The portrait shots are not perfect, but they do a good job at blurring out the background. The wide-angle lens is doing a fairly good job at covering a wider landscape and retaining maximum details. But I was thoroughly impressed with the 3x optical zoom, which retains excellent details from a distance.Here are a few photo samples I shot during my review:Wide-angle photos 1/7 OnePlus 7 Pro camera sample: Wide angleIBTimes India/Sami KhanOnePlus 7 Pro camera sample: Wide angleIBTimes India/Sami KhanOnePlus 7 Pro camera sample: Wide angleIBTimes India/Sami KhanOnePlus 7 Pro camera sample: Wide angleIBTimes India/Sami KhanOnePlus 7 Pro camera sample: Wide angleIBTimes India/Sami KhanOnePlus 7 Pro camera sample: Wide angleIBTimes India/Sami KhanOnePlus 7 Pro camera sample: Wide angleIBTimes India/Sami KhanPreviousNextPortraits 1/4 OnePlus 7 Pro camera sample: PortraitIBTimes India/Sami KhanOnePlus 7 Pro camera sample: PortraitIBTimes India/Sami KhanOnePlus 7 Pro camera sample: PortraitIBTimes India/Sami KhanOnePlus 7 Pro camera sample: PortraitIBTimes India/Sami KhanPreviousNext3x optical zoom 1/6 OnePlus 7 Pro camera sample: 1x Normal modeIBTimes India/Sami KhanOnePlus 7 Pro camera sample: 3x zoomIBTimes India/Sami KhanOnePlus 7 Pro camera sample: 1x normal modeIBTimes India/Sami KhanOnePlus 7 Pro camera sample: 3x zoomIBTimes India/Sami KhanOnePlus 7 Pro camera sample: 1x normal modeIBTimes India/Sami KhanOnePlus 7 Pro camera sample: 3x zoomIBTimes India/Sami KhanPreviousNextNightscape 1/4 OnePlus 7 Pro camera sample: NightscapeIBTimes India/Sami KhanOnePlus 7 Pro camera sample: NightscapeIBTimes India/Sami KhanOnePlus 7 Pro camera sample: NightscapeIBTimes India/Sami KhanOnePlus 7 Pro camera sample: NightscapeIBTimes India/Sami KhanPreviousNextNormal 1/7 OnePlus 7 Pro camera sample: NormalIBTimes India/Sami KhanOnePlus 7 Pro camera sample: NormalIBTimes India/Sami KhanOnePlus 7 Pro camera sample: NormalIBTimes India/Sami KhanOnePlus 7 Pro camera sample: NormalIBTimes India/Sami KhanOnePlus 7 Pro camera sample: NormalIBTimes India/Sami KhanOnePlus 7 Pro camera sample: NormalIBTimes India/Sami KhanOnePlus 7 Pro camera sample: NormalIBTimes India/Sami KhanPreviousNextSelfies 1/2 OnePlus 7 Pro camera sample: Selfies with and without portraitIBTimes India/Sami KhanOnePlus 7 Pro camera sample: Selfies with and without portraitIBTimes India/Sami KhanPreviousNextThe list of things that amazed me during the review doesn’t seem to end here. OnePlus phones have always set the benchmark for performance and what do you think OnePlus 7 Pro is capable of delivering.OnePlus 7 Pro, with its Snapdragon 855, 12GB RAM and OxygenOS 9, is an absolute beast when it comes to handling multiple apps and tasks, running high-graphics apps without any lags and effortlessly taking care of day-to-day tasks – all while managing power the best way it can. I’ve played PUBG Mobile on various phones, but nothing is quite like on OnePlus 7 Pro. The dual stereos are a boon for gamers and multimedia buffs. One of my biggest complaints with the 6T was the single down-facing speaker and it’s no longer a problem with OnePlus 7 Pro. OnePlus 7 Pro reviewIBTimes India/Sami KhanThere were hardly any instances when the OnePlus 7 Pro gave up on me. In fact, the overall user experience is the best you’ll find on any phone and a huge credit goes to the OxygenOS 9. All the new features like screen recording with sound, new zen mode so you balance your digital and real lives, butter-like gestures, SMS aggregation, caller identification and all the existing clean and neat UI features contributed equally towards optimum user experience. And did I mention how great that 6.67-inch Fluid AMOLED 2K+ display is, which compliments the OxygenOS quite impressively.Another thing I noticed to have improved in the OnePlus 7 Pro is the optical fingerprint scanner, which works efficiently and in a jiffy. The whole “Fast and Smooth” mantra is applied to the fingerprint unlocking and face unlocking features in the OnePlus 7 Pro. Despite having a pop-up camera, I rarely noticed the mechanism in work. Overall, OnePlus 7 Pro is a work of art. OnePlus 7 Pro reviewIBTimes India/Sami KhanOnePlus 7 Pro’s 4,000mAh battery is huge in size but the phone doesn’t give it away, which is one of the things I liked. Complete with Warp Charge 30 and full day battery life, OnePlus 7 Pro is one of the few phones you can count on. In my tests, I was able to get 22+ hours of extensive usage, which included playing games, streaming videos, browsing social media, communicating on calls and IM apps. OnePlus 7 Pro consistently delivered north of 4 and half hours to 5 hours of on-screen time, which is more than I could ask for. OnePlus 7 Pro reviewIBTimes India/Sami KhanTo test fast charging, I drained the battery completely and charged to 100 percent in 80 minutes. Normally, I would charge for 30 minutes and easily get past a full day of work without having to plug the phone back in until midnight. The OnePlus 7 Pro review box also came with a Warp Car charger, which is brilliant. The fast charging in the car charger matches that of the wall charger, which is something I haven’t experienced with any car chargers. It was a life-saving feature as it allowed me to charge the phone to full during my commute to work.All said, the million dollar question is whether OnePlus 7 Pro is worth its price. Seeing how OnePlus has grown as a brand and how the OnePlus 7 Pro delivers on all fronts, I would easily recommend this flagship as a killer value for money for anyone looking for a premium smartphone in the sub-Rs 60K price range. If you’re fine with spending a bit more the next logical and reasonable device is Huawei P30 Pro, but that would require you to increase your budget to over Rs 70,000. OnePlus 7 Pro, on the other hand, starts at Rs 48,999 for the base model, but the unit I reviewed is the one with 12GB RAM and costs Rs 57,999. If you have the budget for it, you cannot go wrong with any of the OnePlus 7 Pro models.

93 killed in India after drinking toxic liquor

first_imgAn Indian patient who drank toxic bootleg liquor is treated at Kushal Konwar Civil Hospital in Golaghat district in the northeastern Indian state of Assam on 23 February, 2019. Photo: AFPNinety-three workers have died and at least 200 others have been hospitalised in northeastern India after drinking toxic liquor, officials said Saturday, in the latest case of alcohol poisoning in the country.The deaths in Assam state came less than two weeks after tainted liquor killed about 100 people in the northern states of Uttar Pradesh and Uttarakhand.”The number of dead (in the district) has now increased to 58, and another 75 people are undergoing treatment” in local hospitals, Dhiren Hazarika, deputy commissioner of Golaghat district in Assam, told AFP.Another official from the neighbouring district of Jorhat said that 35 people had died there after consuming a batch of “spurious liquor”.Hazarika said people started falling sick after consuming a batch of illegally produced liquor late Thursday.The victims, who include many women, worked at local tea estates in the region. The death toll could rise further as both officials said some of the afflicted were in a critical condition.”The people came to the hospital with severe vomiting, extreme chest pain and breathlessness,” doctor Ratul Bordoloi, joint director of Golaghat’s health department, told AFP.Assam Chief Minister Sarbananda Sonowal has ordered an inquiry.State police said they had arrested one man for selling the liquor, and authorities said two excise department officials were suspended for failing to take adequate precautions over the sale of the alcohol.Assam health minister Himanta Biswa Sarma told AFP that state authorities had collated “at least 80” deaths in the districts. “But apart from this some more people died outside the hospital,” he added.”I also met the family members and relatives and ensured them that the perpetrators will not be spared,” Sarma said in a Twitter comment.Some media reports, citing anonymous sources, said that more than 100 people had died and the exact number was still being verified by authorities.Cheap, locally made liquor is common in parts of rural India and bootleggers often add methanol — a highly toxic form of alcohol sometimes used as an anti-freeze — to their product to increase its strength.If ingested in large quantities, methanol can cause blindness, liver damage and death.Hundreds of mainly poor people die each year in the South Asian country from tainted liquor, which normally costs just a few US cents a bottle.Of the estimated five billion litres of alcohol drunk every year in India, around 40 per cent is illegally produced, according to the International Spirits and Wine Association of India.Many Indian states have implemented or pushed for prohibition, which, according to critics, further increases the unsupervised manufacture and sale of alcohol.last_img read more

NZ PM orders toplevel inquiry into mosque massacres

first_imgNew Zealand prime minister Jacinda Ardern speaks to the media during her post cabinet press conference at Parliament in Wellington on 25 March. Photo: AFPNew Zealand prime minister Jacinda Ardern on Monday ordered an independent judicial inquiry into whether police and intelligence services could have prevented the Christchurch mosque attacks on 15 March.Ardern said a royal commission — the most powerful judicial probe available under New Zealand law — was needed to find out how a single gunman was able to kill 50 people in an attack that shocked the world.”It is important that no stone is left unturned to get to how this act of terrorism occurred and how we could have stopped it,” she told reporters.New Zealand’s spy agencies have faced criticism in the wake of the attack for concentrating on the threat from Islamic extremism.Instead, the victims were all Muslims and the massacre was allegedly carried out by a white supremacist fixated on the belief that there was an Islamist plot to “invade” Western countries.”One question we need to answer is whether or not we could or should have known more,” Ardern said.”New Zealand is not a surveillance state … but questions need to be answered.”Ardern ruled out New Zealand re-introducing the death penalty for accused gunman Brenton Tarrant, 28, who was arrested minutes after the attack on the mosques and has been charged with murder.She said details of the royal commission were being finalised, but it would be comprehensive and would report in a timely manner.It will cover the activities of intelligence services, police, customs, immigration and any other relevant government agencies in the lead-up to the attack.The gunman livestreamed the attack online, although New Zealand has outlawed the footage as “objectionable content”.Ardern reiterated her believe it should not be aired.”That video should not be shared. That is harmful content,” she said when questioned about Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan showing excerpts of the footage at campaign rallies for local elections this month.Erdogan had angered both Wellington and Canberra with campaign rhetoric about anti-Muslim Australians and New Zealanders being sent back in “coffins” like their grandfathers at Gallipoli, a World War I battle.New Zealand Foreign Minister Winston Peters travelled to Istanbul to meet Erdogan and address an emergency meeting of the Organisation of Islamic Cooperation.Peters said OIC members were full of praise for the support New Zealand had offered its small, tight-knit Muslim community in the wake of the killings.”A number of them were weeping and sobbing at the demonstration (of support) by non-Muslim New Zealand towards the Muslim victims,” he told reporters.”It was dramatic and I was told by countless ministers that they’ve never seen anything of that type.”The body of an Indian student killed in the Christchurch mosque attacks, meanwhile, was returned Monday to her grieving family in Kochi, where relatives remembered a bright young woman dedicated to her studies.Ansi Alibava, 25, was the first of at least five Indians shot dead on March 15 to be repatriated.The family planned to hold a funeral ceremony for the masters student in their nearby hometown of Kodungallur.last_img read more

Sept 11 Revealed The Importance And Limits of The Presidents Daily Briefing

first_imgDamian Dovarganes/APThe President’s Daily Briefing, or PDB, is the top-secret intelligence report the CIA presents to the president every weekday. The book shown here is for a briefing delivered to President George W. Bush in 2002.On Sept. 11, 2001, President George W. Bush was visiting Sarasota, Fla. At 8 a.m. sharp, the CIA’s Michael Morell delivered the daily intelligence briefing — something he did six mornings a week — regardless of whether the president was at the White House or on the road.“Contrary to press reporting and myth there was absolutely nothing in my briefing that had to do with terrorism that day,” Morell recalled. “Most of it had to do with the Israeli-Palestinian issue.”As Morell concluded, Bush stepped into his waiting motorcade and headed to an elementary school. Moments later, news broke of the terror attacks in New York. Shortly after that, Bush and Morell were on Air Force One — and the president wanted answers.“The president said to me, ‘Michael, who did this?’ ” Morell said. He didn’t know, but had a strong suspicion.“I told him that when we got to the end of the trail, I was absolutely confident, absolutely certain, that it would take us to [Osama] bin Laden and al-Qaida,” said Morell, who retired in 2013 as the CIA’s deputy director and now hosts the podcast Intelligence Matters.That landmark day captured both the critical importance — and the frustrating limits — of the President’s Daily Briefing, or PDB.Doug Mills/APChief of Staff Andy Card whispers into the ear of President George W. Bush to give him word of the planes that slammed into the World Trade Center in New York, on Sept. 11, 2001. Bush had received his daily intelligence briefing shortly before, and had just begun a visit to the Emma E. Booker Elementary School in Sarasota, Fla.Launched under President TrumanThe practice of providing the president with a daily intelligence briefing began in 1946 with President Harry Truman, who was trying to make sense of a still chaotic world in the aftermath of World War II.“He was troubled that he was receiving these random reports from different departments and no one was telling him, or suggesting to him, what was particularly more important than something else,” said David Robarge, the CIA’s chief historian.Truman created the Central Intelligence Group, the forerunner of the CIA. Within weeks, the briefings began, and they were brief indeed. Most were short notes from U.S. ambassadors with little or no context.Many reports were based on rumors or newspaper stories abroad, and were difficult to verify, Robarge said.APThis image provided by the Central Intelligence Agency shows the first Daily Summary delivered to President Harry Truman on Feb. 15, 1946“We dealt a lot with information peddlers and fabricators and paper mills, as we called them,” he said. “We were very desperate for information and everybody knew that and took advantage of it. We spent a lot of our time in those early years sorting out the wheat from the chaff.”Despite being a part of every president’s daily routine for more than 70 years, the briefings are rarely discussed publicly. Just last month, the CIA declassified the first 20 briefings delivered to Truman — and many still resonate today.“The very first general item for Harry Truman was about some false information that was being put out about Russia and the United States,” said David Priess, a former CIA officer.Priess was a member of the presidential briefing team in the early 2000s and wrote a history of the briefings called The President’s Book of Secrets.Those initial briefings dealt with a trade dispute with China, which was resisting U.S. imports, and rising tensions on the Korean peninsula, where war would break out a few years later.“Many of the issues that President Truman was dealing with in February 1946 are still on the agenda today,” said Priess.APPresident Lyndon Johnson reads the President’s Daily Brief as his wife Lady Bird Johnson holds their first grandchild in the White House.Providing analysisToday’s version took shape under President John F. Kennedy and was driven in part by the Bay of Pigs, the failed CIA operation to overthrow Cuba’s leader Fidel Castro in 1961.“We knew John F. Kennedy was disappointed after the Bay of Pigs debacle early in his presidency and that helped spur this new intelligence product,” Priess said.The documents began including more analysis on the pros and cons of potential U.S. actions abroad. While the CIA has always handled the report, other agencies now contribute, including the National Security Agency and the Office of the Director of National Intelligence.One misconception is that all presidents are briefed face-to-face. But, as Rodney Faraon, a former CIA briefer, said, “Every president receives their briefing differently.”Most go over the briefing book on their own. For President Lyndon Johnson, it was bedtime reading. Richard Nixon didn’t care for it and allowed only one White House adviser to see it — Henry Kissinger. Barack Obama received it on his iPad and had it circulated to more than 30 advisers.Putting it togetherWhile Washington is sleeping, a team at CIA headquarters makes final edits to the leather-bound briefing book, updating it frequently.Rodney Faraon’s job in the late 1990s and early 2000s was to study up on the document overnight and head to the home of his boss, CIA Director George Tenet, at 6 a.m.“I would be briefing him in a secure vehicle on his way from his house to either the White House or to CIA headquarters,” Faraon recalled.David Priess delivered his briefing to the director of the FBI, a man who was always pressing him for more details — Robert Mueller. Mueller now leads the investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election and possible coordination with the Trump campaign.And Michael Morell remembers his briefings with Bush as if “I was in graduate school preparing to go in to seven or eight exams every morning with somebody who is going to fire questions at you nonstop.”Trump’s approachPresident Trump initially questioned the need for a daily briefing.But Mike Pompeo, the CIA director before becoming secretary of state, said it’s become part of the president’s routine.“Nearly every day, I get up, get ready, read the material that’s been presented early in the morning and then trundle down [from CIA headquarters] to the White House,” Pompeo said back in January.His successor as CIA director, Gina Haspel, is now a regular at the briefings, as is Dan Coats, the director of national intelligence.The intelligence community has had both great successes — like locating Osama bin Laden in Pakistan — and failures — like claiming Iraq’s Saddam Hussein had weapons of mass destruction. The former CIA briefers say their role is to provide the best possible intelligence, and leave the policy choices to the president.David Priess cites an old CIA expression: “You can lead policymakers to intelligence, but you can’t make them think.”Copyright 2018 NPR.

first_imgTV ad measurement company iSpot.tv is seeking to bolster the adoption of its TV advertising analytics technology with an additional US$30 million of investment capital.Sean MullerThe new money brings investment in iSpot.tv to US$57.8 million since the company started to offer real-time TV advertising analytics at scale in 2012.iSpot, which delivers actionable analytics to a wide range of US brands, says it has grown its annual subscription base to more than 200 blue-chip brands, and increased revenues 100% or more year-over-year for five years running.It says this rapid market adoption is down to iSpot’s ability to measure TV advertising with digital precision and help brands definitively attribute TV ad exposures to business outcomes.“We have entered a new era of TV advertising measurement that looks a lot more like digital, except on a medium not hampered by digital’s fraud challenges,” said iSpot founder and CEO Sean Muller.“The most important thing isn’t exactly how a TV ad gets on a screen or what programme or service it runs against. What matters is which factors are driving actions from customers. We’re helping brands take ownership of these insights to make greater impact on their business.”iSpot says it has built the consistent and actionable measurement required to support a shift from GRPs (Gross Rating Points) and rough estimates of age and gender to an audience and business outcome-based approach.Companies endorsing its approach include T-Mobile. “We trust iSpot and have partnered with them to push the envelope on how our TV advertising investment is deployed and how its effectiveness is measured,” said T-Mobile EVP marketing Nick Drake.last_img read more

cache of 134 million records dating from 1950 to 2016 obtained by the German newspaper Sueddeutsche Zeitung and shared with the Washington-based International Consortium of Investigative Journalists Having to police the vast amount of content on their websites would be too burdensome they said; smaller sites without big legal teams would face overwhelming liability and who knew what unforeseen lawsuits would be made possible by changing a law known as "the bedrock of the internet"But now "Big Tech" whose opposition was anticipated to be a major stumbling block to amending the law has mostly backed down After working with Senate staff members to obtain what they see as important changes to the language of the bill the Internet Association announced late Friday Nov 3 that it supports the Stop Enabling Sex Traffickers Act also known as SESTAAlso Friday the two Democratic senators from California who had not weighed in on the bill Kamala D Harris and Dianne Feinstein both announced their support for it Some had thought that pressure from California-based Internet companies might sway them but ultimately they endorsed the measure removing yet another potential hurdle to passageThe Senate bill and a similar one in the House were inspired by the numerous court victories won by Backpagecom an online classified ads site that hosts massive advertising for prostitution including an unknown percentage of children being trafficked by adult pimpsBackpage has successfully cited the Communications Decency Act which protects websites from liability for posts by third parties to evade both criminal prosecution and civil lawsuits As attorney general of California Harris launched a criminal case against Backpage for prostitution and it was thrown out by a judge who cited the Communications Decency ActThe Senate’s subcommittee on investigations sparked congressional action when it found that Backpage was editing ads to remove references to underage prostitutes but allowing the ads to remain online Then in July The Washington Post revealed that Backpage was actively soliciting ads from prostitutes on other websites and creating new ads for those prostitutes so that they could post on Backpage with just one clickSome members of Congress called for the Justice Department to investigate Backpage for seemingly creating illegal content not just hosting it And some opponents of the new bill cited The Post story as evidence that Backpage could be prosecuted under the existing law with no need to amend the law and possibly open up unforeseen areas of civil and criminal liability After the bill was introduced tech lobbyists worked Capitol Hill trying to drum up opposition Google issued a statement saying the proposed bill "would be a disaster" and "would actually hinder the fight against sex trafficking"But members of the tech community worked with Senate Commerce Committee staff to tweak the language of the bill which is scheduled for markup Wednesday One of the keys was the definition of "participation in a venture" in an anti-sex-trafficking statute which courts have found did not include internet sites hosting illegal content The proposed bill originally defined participation as "knowing conduct by an individual or entity by any means that assists supports or facilitates a violation" of sex trafficking lawsInternet companies thought the phrase "by any means" had the potential to be broadly interpreted when analyzing a website’s actions The newly amended bill changes the definition of participation to simply "knowingly assisting supporting or facilitating a violation" of sex trafficking laws Senate staff members saidThe changes to the bill also amend the standard by which state prosecutors can seek to charge or sue websites requiring them to meet the federal standard including the new definition above rather than those established by state law which can vary widelyMichael Beckerman president of the Internet Association which counts Google Twitter and Microsoft among its members said in a statement that "Important changes made to SESTA will grant victims the ability to secure the justice they deserve allow internet platforms to continue their work combating human trafficking and protect good actors in the ecosystem"Beckerman said the association was looking "forward to working with the House and Senate as SESTA moves through the legislative process to ensure that our members are able to continue their work to fight exploitation"Sen Rob Portman R-Ohio and other members of the Commerce Committee welcomed the endorsement from the Internet Association "I’m pleased we’ve reached an agreement" Portman said in a statement "We’ve reached an agreement to further clarify the intent of the bill and advance this important legislation"John Simpson of Consumer Watchdog which has tracked how big Internet companies have aggressively fought changes to the Communications Decency Act said: "We’re quite happy they came on board We wish they’d done it sooner" He said the grilling that executives from Facebook Twitter and Google absorbed last week during hearings over Russian interference in last year’s election may have pushed the association into endorsing the bill"I think that’s what pushed the Internet Association into saying ‘OK we better get on board’ " Simpson saidNot every internet group is on board NetChoice another internet trade group that has brought lawsuits against state laws imposing sales tax mandates and privacy restrictions used former congressman Chris Cox who co-wrote the Communications Decency Act to testify against the bill in the House last month and remains opposed to itSteve DelBianco president of NetChoice said Monday that it was "good to see the progress made from collaborative efforts on all sides" but that the group still favored using existing laws to go after online traffickers as Cox advocated "Federal prosecutors are apparently having trouble bringing sex traffickers to justice – even though they’re explicitly unhindered by Section 230″ of the Communications Decency Act DelBianco said "We need stronger legal remedies than just
