Tajh Boyd Clemson Rout Georgia Tech

Tajh Boyd put on a dominant performance to lead Clemson over Georgia Tech Thursday night.Boyd broke Philip Rivers’ Atlantic Coast Conference career record after throwing four touchdowns and 340 yards in Clemson’s 55-31 win over Georgia Tech. Boyd shook up the Tigers coaches, teammates and 75,324 fans at Death Valley, getting hurt at the end of the third quarter and having to be rushed back into the locker room.The QB suffered a collar-bone injury, but after discovering it was only a bruised bone, Boyd begged his offensive coordinator Chad Morris to put him back in the game where Clemson was already ahead 41-24.“If it was a dire situation I felt like I needed to play, I felt like I could’ve,” Boyd said. “But we were in a situation where it wasn’t needed.”Will the injury sideline Boyd for Clemson’s next game on Nov. 23?“No, man, I’m not going to miss my last game in the valley,” he said. “I’ll throw a pad in there and I’ll be fine.”Talking with the media after the game, the coach praised Boyd. “He’s a competitor,” Morris said. “My gosh, look at the records this guy has broken in the ACC. Wow. And in just three years.” read more

AMMC Tuesday Recap

first_img “We think about labeling very carefully,” said Condé Nast’s Dirk Standen. “We aren’t trying to fool our readers.” Lacy agreed, continuing, “From my perspective, we all have to look at things that are non-traditional,” but reiterating seconds later that, “print is the fundamental underpinning of any media program.” “The silver bullet is our knowledge of the consumer,” added Lacy, “and our ability to move away from our reliance on things like direct mail and the newsstand.” “There’s not a day that goes by when I’m not asked for a cover,” added Essence editor-in-chief Vanessa De Luca. “They want to be associated with a brand that’s trusted. They can’t create that relationship on their own.” On a panel about native and content marketing, Hearst Magazines digital media VP Lee Sosin stated that the recently-released FTC guidance on best practices in native advertising will level the playing field and help legacy brands rise to the top, ostensibly due to their relative adherence to transparency and journalistic integrity compared to less-established startups in a crowded digital field. “We have the greatest content makers in the world,” said Condé Nast president and CEO, Bob Sauerberg, on an afternoon panel that included Ripp, Hearst Magazines president David Carey, Meredith chairman and CEO Stephen Lacy, and Rodale Inc. chairman and CEO Maria Rodale. See also: AMMC Day One Recap Like advertisers, individuals still recognize the power of being associated with popular magazine brands, reported the speakers on a panel about selling celebrity news. Ripp closed an optimistic CEO panel by urging the audience to “seize this moment of disruption in magazine media,” but the discussion wasn’t the only highlight of an event program brimming with marquee names—both within magazine media and without. When Stelter turned the discussion towards just what types of efforts the companies were making to embrace change, Ripp reported that Time Inc. had just hired its first ever chief data officer, arguing that everything publishers do is in some way a data collection effort now. Promoting greater synergy among brands, too, is key. Sauerberg said video for Condé Nast. Lacy described learning to better interact with the consumer and shifting marketers “to the bottom of the purchase funnel.” Rodale, whose company announced the bold move to cut print advertising from Prevention on Monday, said there’s simply not as much to lose anymore, so even the largest publishers feel free to take risks. “Consumer revenue, in any shape or form,” stated Rodale. “Trust in the media is at an all time low. Consumers are willing to pay for media that’s free of bullshit.” “The only thing that limits us is our creativity and our willingness to think differently,” added Time Inc. EVP of business development, Erik Moreno. Indeed, where the “Independents” touted all of the bold and innovative ways they’re embracing and thriving in a fast-evolving magazine media world on Monday, Tuesday’s programming allowed the industry’s giants to reassert both the enduring prominence of their brands and their positions as powerful creators in today’s content-hungry environment. Secret service personnel weaved through the crowd of magazine media pro’s at the Grand Hyatt in advance of First Lady Michelle Obama taking the stage alongside actresses Lena Dunham and Julianne Moore to promote the White House’s charitable education initiative Let Girls Learn. Condé Nast, Hearst, Meredith, and Time Inc. pledged a combined $9 million in advertising space to the cause. Obama drew some cheers from the sharp audience when she referred to her successor as the “First Spouse.” Magazine covers remain a powerful commodity, the panel argued, and publishers are in a position to leverage that authority, said The Hollywood Reporter-Billboard Media Group president Janice Min. Stelter closed the discussion by asking each participant to name their biggest growth area for the year ahead. “We’ll keep fighting for the print business,” said Sauerberg, adding that consumers love magazines and predicting that this connection will allow magazine media to flourish as the economy—and advertisers’ bottom lines—improves. Brand power, after all, extends across any medium. None of the five executives blinked when asked by CNN’s Brian Stelter what made them nervous in today’s climate. Arguing that all media is naturally disruptive, Carey said publishers have been forced to adapt and have become much better at subscription generation. Time Inc. chairman and CEO, Joe Ripp, closed day one of the American Magazine Media Conference (AMMC) Monday afternoon by declaring that, once again, “content is king.” “No one has ever said, ‘I’m dying to see my client at the top of the feed on ESPN.com,'” said ESPN The Magazine and ESPN.com editor-in-chief Chad Millman. “You can’t make a poster out of that.” Elsewhere on the event program, Arianna Huffington promoted her upcoming book, “The Sleep Revolution,” and late-night host Seth Meyers chatted about the Iowa caucuses over lunch with Gayle King, New York Magazine columnist Jonathan Chait, Time editor Nancy Gibbs, and Vanity Fair contributing editor Michael Kinsley.last_img read more

Trump declares emergency lawsuit filed challenging it

first_imgUS president Donald Trump talks to the media as he stands with US Border Patrol agents on the banks of the Rio Grande river during his visit to the US – Mexico border in Mission, Texas, US, on 10 January 2019. Reuters File PhotoPresident Donald Trump on Friday declared a national emergency in a bid to fund his promised wall at the US-Mexico border without congressional approval, an action Democrats vowed to challenge as a violation of the US Constitution.The Republican president’s move, circumventing Congress, seeks to make good on a 2016 presidential campaign pledge to build a border wall that Trump insists is necessary to curtail illegal immigration he blames for bringing crime and drugs into the United States.Within hours, the action was challenged in a lawsuit filed on behalf of three Texas landowners, saying that Trump’s declaration violates the US Constitution and that the planned wall would infringe on their property rights.Both California and New York said that they, too, planned to file lawsuits.Hours after Trump’s announcement, the Democratic-controlled House of Representatives’ Judiciary Committee said it had launched an investigation into the emergency declaration.In a letter to Trump, committee Democrats asked him to make available for a hearing White House and Justice Department officials involved in the action. They also requested legal documents on the decision that led to the declaration, setting a deadline of next Friday.”We believe your declaration of an emergency shows a reckless disregard for the separation of powers and your own responsibilities under our constitutional system,” said the letter, signed by Chairman Jerrold Nadler and other top Democrats on the panel.Trump on Friday also signed a bipartisan government spending bill that would prevent another partial government shutdown by funding several agencies that otherwise would have closed on Saturday.The funding bill represented a legislative defeat for him since it contains no money for his proposed wall – the focus of weeks of conflict between Trump and Democrats in Congress.Trump made no mention of the bill in rambling comments to reporters in the White House’s Rose Garden.He had demanded that Congress provide him with $5.7 billion in wall funding as part of legislation to fund the agencies. That triggered a historic, 35-day government shutdown in December and January that hurt the US economy and his opinion poll numbers.By reorienting his quest for wall funding toward a legally uncertain strategy based on declaring a national emergency, Trump risks plunging into a lengthy legislative and legal battle with Democrats and dividing his fellow Republicans – many of whom expressed grave reservations on Friday about the president’s action.Fifteen Democrats in the Republican-controlled Senate introduced legislation on Thursday to prevent Trump from invoking emergency powers to transfer funds to his wall from accounts Congress has already committed to other projects.”Exclusive Power”Nancy Pelosi, the Democratic speaker of the House, and top Senate Democrat Chuck Schumer swiftly responded to Trump’s declaration.”The president’s actions clearly violate the Congress’s exclusive power of the purse, which our Founders enshrined in the Constitution,” they said in a statement. “The Congress will defend our constitutional authorities in the Congress, in the courts, and in the public, using every remedy available.”The first legal challenge, filed in federal court in Washington, came from three Texas landowners along the Rio Grande river claiming they were informed the US government would seek to build a border wall on their properties if money for the project were available in 2019.The lawsuit, filed on their behalf by the consumer advocacy group Public Citizen, also named the Frontera Audubon Society as a plaintiff whose “members’ ability to observe wildlife will be impaired” by construction of a border wall and resulting habitat damage.The suit contests Trump’s assertion of a national emergency at the border to justify the president’s action.California Governor Gavin Newsom, a Democrat, describing the supposed border crisis touted by Trump as “made-up,” and New York state’s Democratic attorney general, Letitia James, both said they planned to challenge Trump in court.Trump acknowledged his order would face a lengthy court fight.”I expect to be sued. I shouldn’t be sued. … We’ll win in the Supreme Court,” he predicted.Trump may have also undermined his administration’s argument about the urgency of the situation when he told reporters, “I didn’t need to do this. But I’d rather do it much faster.”In their letter to Trump, House Judiciary Democrats said that language had left them “troubled.”Both the House and the Senate could pass a resolution terminating the emergency by majority vote. However, any such measure would then go to Trump, who would likely veto it. Overriding the veto would require a two-thirds vote in both chambers.Although Trump says a wall is needed to curb illegal immigrants and illicit drugs coming across the border, statistics show that illegal immigration via the border is at a 20-year low and that many drug shipments come through legal ports of entry.Confronted with those statistics by reporters at the Rose Garden event, Trump said they were “wrong.”Also present were a half-dozen women holding poster-sized pictures of family members killed by illegal immigrants. Trump noted their presence in announcing the emergency declaration.He estimated his emergency declaration could free up as much as $8 billion to pay for part of the wall. Estimates of its total cost run as high as $23 billion.As a candidate, Trump repeatedly promised Mexico would pay for the wall. It was one of his biggest applause lines at his campaign rallies. Mexico firmly refused to pay, and now Trump wants US taxpayers to cover the costs.Republicans ConcernedSome congressional Republicans expressed dismay following Trump’s announcement.Greg Walden, a senior House Republican, said on Twitter he was “deeply concerned about the precedent that this action sets.”Republican Senator Thom Tillis said in a statement that Trump’ declaration was not a solution. He cited concerns about insufficient funding to secure the border, the prospect of litigation, “… and most concerning is that it would create a new precedent that a left-wing president would undoubtedly utilise to implement their radical policy agenda while bypassing the authority of Congress.”Other Republicans, such as Senator Lindsey Graham, were supportive.With an emergency formally declared, Trump left Washington to travel to his Mar-a-Lago golf resort in Florida for a holiday break.last_img read more
