Tyler Reddick Takes Texas Xfinity Triumph, Claims First Big Machine Victory

FORT WORTH, Texas — After racing among the leaders all afternoon, Tyler Reddick took the point himself with a spectacular pass from third place with 31 laps to go and held off the field to take the flag checkered during Saturday afternoon’s NASCAR Xfinity Series SRS Distribution 250 at Texas Motor Speedway.

It was Reddick’s 10th career Xfinity Series win, with only his second start in 2022, and his first trophy since his 2019 Xfinity Series Championship year.

RELATED: Official Results | Weekend schedule

It was the first-ever win for Big Machine Racing’s No. 48 Chevrolet, with Reddick taking the checkered flag 1.825 seconds ahead of fellow NASCAR Cup Series regular William Byron in a action-packed afternoon.

There were 11 cautions, the second most in series history on the 1.5-mile Texas High Banks, and a close race in the restarts that followed with the two-time champion of the Xfinity series Reddick who pulled off that impressive pass and eventually won his team. first victory.

“First of all, just a huge opportunity and thanks to Big Machine Racing, [the car] was so good,” said the 26-year-old Californian, noting he was motivated to get behind the wheel this week to help partner team Richard Childress Racing improve their overall Xfinity Series program.

“Chevrolet was so good,” he added. “Nobody at RCR was really happy with the position of the cars, and I wanted to help out and try to improve those cars and understand what we needed to do to improve those cars.

“Well,” he smiled. “We figured it out pretty quickly, I guess.”

Reddick’s victory ended a three-game winning streak for the JR Motorsports Chevrolets, which led 118 of 167 laps on Saturday.

Vice-champion William Byron, driving the #88 JR Motorsports Chevrolet, was making his first Xfinity Series start since winning the 2017 series championship and came within two seconds of winning at JRM which would have was a historic fourth straight win by four different riders. .

The team had three cars in the top five and four in the top 10, including Byron, Sam Mayer in third, Justin Allgaier in fourth and Josh Berry in seventh. Berry led a race-best 46 laps, Allgaier was ahead for 33 and Byron paced the pack for seven laps.

Gragson, who is ranked second in the series driver standings, ended up scoring 36th in the 38-car field after first being recovered in a chain-reaction crash at the start of the final stage and then having then damaged the car beyond repair when a problem tire put the car into the wall just five laps later.

It was a tough end to a great start to the weekend. The 23-year-old Las Vegas native took his first career pole position, led 32 laps and won Stage 1 – his best sixth stage victory of the season – twice that of any pilot.

“I guess the only positive is we got a playoff point for the stage win,” Gragson said, adding: “Definitely sucked. Good to see the other JRM cars running strong. … hopefully we can give the company a good finish today.

“Just a disappointment. We were great, just disappointed. We were pretty fast and just biding our time.

Ryan Truex finished sixth in the No. 18 Joe Gibbs Racing Toyota, earning his best finish in five Xfinity Series starts this season. Stewart-Haas Racing’s Riley Herbst finished eighth – his sixth consecutive top 10 finish and ninth of the season. Kaulig Racing’s Landon Cassill finished 10th; his seventh top-10 of 2022.

The three championship leaders faced adversity on Saturday. Current points leader AJ Allmendinger – the only driver to finish in the top 10 in every race this season – seemed to have stopped that streak when his No. 16 Kaulig Racing Chevrolet suffered a tire rub during the Allgaier race. in the final laps. He was, however, able to maintain his top 10 for the season, recovering a ninth place finish.

Ty Gibbs, who is third in the drivers standings, was involved in the initial multi-car crash with Gragson on lap 89. He has already had a rough day, sent to start the race at the back of the field for a violation inspection.

After the race – and despite the challenges the three of them faced – Allmendinger will take a 44-point advantage over Gragson in next week’s race at Charlotte Motor Speedway, the Alsco Uniforms 300 (1 p.m. ET on FS1 , PRN and SiriusXM NASCAR Radio). He holds a 52-point advantage over Gibbs, who is the defending race winner from Charlotte.

To note: The post-race inspection was carried out in the Xfinity Series garage without major issues, confirming Reddick’s victory. Kaulig Racing’s #16 entry for Allmendinger was found with an unsecured lug nut at a post-race check.

School Board to Discuss Facilities Master Plan and Potential New Bond Measure | News http://amigaextreme.com/school-board-to-discuss-facilities-master-plan-and-potential-new-bond-measure-news/ Fri, 20 May 2022 03:56:15 +0000 http://amigaextreme.com/school-board-to-discuss-facilities-master-plan-and-potential-new-bond-measure-news/

The Pleasanton School Board is set to discuss the district’s facility needs, survey results on a possible new bond measure and additional retirement planning for employee turnover at a busy special meeting. Thursday.

Trustees will begin by deciding whether they wish to enter into a Supplemental Public Agencies Retirement Services (PARS) Retirement Plan with the Association of Pleasanton Teachers.

The conversation will focus on severance incentives, as employee retirements and resignations can help districts and employees realize tax savings, honor employees and facilitate operational efficiencies, according to staff at the Pleasanton Unified School District.

The district realizes savings through normal attrition, which means the financial benefits of retirements, resignations and other events that drive new hires at a lower compensation cost, staff said.

Employees eligible for retirement are at the top of the pay scale and new hires are typically at or near the start of the pay scale, resulting in potential savings for the district. With the separation incentives, the resulting pay differential covers the costs of the plan, staff said.

The administration recommends that the administrators approve or deny participation in the supplemental PARS scheme for employees holding a certificate, holders of a certificate, holders of a certificate and holders of a management diploma .

A financial analysis and recommendation will be provided and uploaded at least 24 hours before the meeting, and staff will need time to complete the financial analysis and determine if cost-saving measures can be taken, officials said. The goal is to promote a professional culture that values ​​collaboration and supports efforts to recruit, develop and retain a diverse and highly skilled workforce.

The special school board meeting is scheduled to start at 5:30 p.m. Thursday (May 19). Read the full agenda here.

In other cases

* Next, administrators will hold a presentation and discussion at a workshop on the Facilities Master Plan update that guides the district on its current and future facilities.

The district entered into an agreement with LPA Architects in late 2021 to work on a comprehensive master plan update. Since then, numerous meetings have been held with the Facilities Master Plan Committee, Facilities Advisory Committee, Site Administrators and other groups.

In addition, numerous surveys were conducted with principals, students, staff, teachers and the public to critically research the needs of PUSD facilities, staff said. Site assessments were carried out to assess all the conditions of the existing facilities at the PUSD.

At the meeting, staff and the LPA will provide the board with a review of the facility master plan process, website update, program cost estimate, next steps to complete the plan, and include the board in a prioritization activity. The Facilities Master Plan update process is expected to incorporate approximately $983 million in project requirements.

The prioritization activity will help align council priorities for facility improvements with input from district and community stakeholders to develop a list of projects for future funding.

Working with the bond consultancy, architect, staff, and board input at the meeting, a list of projects will also be developed to align with the amount of a future bond measure. obligation.

The administration recommends receiving feedback and providing feedback on the various elements of the presentation. Coordinate with bond consultant for project slate alignment, update facilities master plan website with current site plans, review and get feedback from advisory committee, review draft slate prioritization of facilities on June 9 and final acceptance by the board on June 23.

* The board will consider the results of community polls on the possibility of placing a new school bond measure on the November ballot.

In 2016, PUSD voters passed a $270 million general bond bond addressing facility needs, security upgrades and building upgrades to support 21st century learning environments. The bond represents one-third of the $856 million for facility improvements that were identified at that time.

A bond team was assembled, including an architect to develop a facility master plan, a financial consultant, a bond consultant and a bond attorney.

Last March, bond planning meetings were held to develop a strategy to determine the feasibility of a possible November 2022 bond action.

The district is also nearing completion of the facility master plan update that will identify district-wide facility needs. Those needs will be prioritized to fit into the potential November obligation, staff said. Some of these types of projects were included in the survey, such as gymnasiums, sports facilities, theaters and a new school in the Educational Options Center.

A total of 475 voters were surveyed between April 14 and April 20, and data was collected via online and telephone interviews. The results indicated support for a future bond, albeit undesired. Initial support is essentially at the 55% voting threshold, staff said.

Poll data showed voters think it’s crucial Pleasanton continues to have great schools, even if it means raising taxes. The survey data also reveals a lack of understanding of the district’s facility needs, with about 60% indicating there is a great or some need, staff said.

For a successful link, substantial community outreach to the needs of the district would be crucial, they added.

* The board will consider an agreement for Phase 2 bond advisory services with Clifford Moss. This item follows on from a previous item on the board’s agenda concerning the results of the polls. If the Trustees agree to proceed with the continuation of a November 2022 bond action, then this agenda item is brought forward for consideration.

* Next, possible action upon agreement with Westside Landscape and Concrete Inc. for depot landscape at Foothill High School. As part of an ongoing improvement to Foothill, the district has entered into an agreement with Gates and Associates to design and improve the landscape along the landing area.

The district received five bids, but the lowest bidder, Sierra Services, officially withdrew its bid on May 2 due to a clerical error, district staff said. The second lowest bidder was Westside Landscape and Concrete Inc. for $135,455.

* Administrators will discuss the purchase of Apple iMacs for the digital media labs at Amador Valley and Foothill High Schools.

The digital media labs were outfitted with iMacs in 2013 and have not been replaced or upgraded since, staff said. The replacement cost for each lab will be $84,227.31. Apple offers a leasing option to split the total cost into five annual payments. A warranty buy-back option is available during the last year of the lease plan, allowing the district to resell the devices to Apple for purchase credit during a future replacement.

Amador Valley and Foothill will cover the first payment through the site or PTA funds, and the district will cover the remaining payments.

* They will consider action to brighten the initial proposed 2022-2023 collective bargaining agreement with the California School Employees Association.

* The board will consider an employment contract with a new assistant superintendent of teaching and learning, with an annual base salary of $238,312. The draft contract is available, but it does not identify who the final candidate is.

Dealmaking kicks into high gear – The Hollywood Reporter http://amigaextreme.com/dealmaking-kicks-into-high-gear-the-hollywood-reporter/ Wed, 18 May 2022 11:36:18 +0000 http://amigaextreme.com/dealmaking-kicks-into-high-gear-the-hollywood-reporter/

With the 2022 midterm elections kicking off and what is sure to be a heated presidential election cycle on the horizon, star journalists are in high demand. But while TV presenters and correspondents have seen their profile (and pay) rise for decades, the past few years in particular have accelerated that change.

“Over the past five years, news talents have become stars in their own right,” says UTA ​​Co-Chair Jay Sures, citing his agency’s clients: “People like Don Lemon, David Muir, Anderson Cooper, Bret Baier, Jake Tapper, Norah O’Donnell. They are stars. They are street stars. And as a result, they are compensated commensurate with what they bring to their respective employers, which is a real reliable source of information – people like to watch them for different reasons.

These high-profile anchors can now reasonably expect deals that total eight figures per year, especially if they include other projects like podcasts or development deals. And with a new election cycle approaching, these journalism stars are looking for ways to ensure they’re part of the conversation and remain top of mind for news junkies and casual viewers, whether they’re paying or no for cable tv. It helps that news is among the only shows that consistently succeed on linear TV, even as consumer viewing habits (not to mention corporate business models) have shifted to on-demand streaming.

“There’s a reason why ABC world news tonight With David Muir is the most-watched TV show outside of sports,” says WME partner Bradley Singer. “That says a lot about viewer behavior and the value of television news.”

The crowded media landscape of 2022 is very different from what it was in the 1980s and early 1990s, when a seat behind a morning or evening network antenna desk was a reporter’s only real hope. for a million dollar salary.

But it was the rise of cable news – notably CNN during the Gulf War and Fox News after 9/11 – that greatly expanded the landscape of anchors and their agents, who adeptly acknowledged that A-list anchors could revolve around a news broadcast. just as effectively as an A-list star could topple a series of declining networks.

It is this media universe that has helped transform companies like NS Bienstock, run by Richard Leibner and Carole Cooper, into powerful news and information agencies. UTA acquired Bienstock in 2014, which, like THR noted at the time, instantly gave the agency “leading market share” in the broadcast news business.

With the rise of streaming video, the emergence of podcasting as a viable business, the explosive growth of digital media and, in Sures’ words, an “insatiable desire for fresh content”, the past eight years have perhaps seen as many changes in the new business as the previous 80s.

“The past few years have shown that the only thing that’s constant is change,” says CAA officer Rachel Adler.

So while Edward R. Murrow, Barbara Walters and Dan Rather paved the way for today’s journalists not only in fame but also in fortune, the opportunities today are far greater than they were. weren’t at the time.

“Being a journalist right now, being a broadcaster right now, doesn’t mean you have to have a TV deal,” Singer says. “That means you can do streaming news, you can do podcasting. Maybe you’re a broadcast network correspondent, maybe you’re on cable, maybe you do stuff for Netflix.

Among superstar journalists and animators, that increasingly means production deals. Robin Roberts, George Stephanopoulos, Jenna Bush Hager, Rachel Maddow, Sunny Hostin — have all signed deals to produce specials, documentaries, podcasts, and other fare for their parent companies.

Maddow, MSNBC’s most-watched host, is going from hosting five nights a week to one night a week so she can work on outside projects, including a scripted film directed by Ben Stiller based on his book and his podcast Men’s Bag. (WME brokered the mega-deal last year.) “They like it because it’s entrepreneurial and it gives them another outlet, but it’s also good business,” Singer says. “If you’re paying these people a lot of money to be stars in your company, why not have them produce other types of content?”

But the opportunities are wider than that. Consider Rebecca Jarvis, ABC News business, technology and economics correspondent: Addressing an intimate room filled with top Disney announcers on April 25, Jarvis recalled a story that has stuck with her over the years, since she featured a profile on an up-and-coming Silicon Valley genius: Elizabeth Holmes, founder of Theranos.

Jarvis never covered this ground, but years later the interaction led her to host the award-winning podcast produced by ABC News. The stall, which in turn was adapted as a limited series for Hulu, with Jarvis serving as producer. “She had to fight [skeptics at ABC] obtain The stall Finished; it took off like wildfire and we sold to Fox Searchlight and Hulu in a bidding war,” Sures recalled.

But it’s also worth being opportunistic and willing to step away from traditional audiences, betting that there are consumers of information who haven’t been exposed to your work.

“There is a real creator economy in the news space,” says Adler.

She cites as an example Pulitzer Prize-winning author Jon Meacham, who in the midst of the pandemic decided to start a podcast, Hope, Throughout history. “He has a ton of 18- to 35-year-olds listening to his podcast,” Adler says, noting that the demo is much younger than news consumers elsewhere. “Going to where the audience is” is a very good idea in any business. »

And that could explain the push towards streaming by all news agencies. While some might already be unhappy (RIP, CNN+), every TV news organization is investing in space and betting that while streaming won’t replace their linear offerings, it will at least bring new, younger consumers into their new ecosystem. Look no further than CBS’ O’Donnell, which hosts a revitalized version of Murrow’s person to person for the CBS News streaming service. Or a number of deals that incorporate both streaming and linear TV, like MSNBC’s recent deal with Biden administration veteran Symone Sanders, who will host shows on Peacock and on weekend programming. from MSNBC.

As networks seek to fill more hours than ever before (think NBC News Group, which offers the network’s news shows, MSNBC, CNBC, Noticias Telemundo, and now streaming services from all of their brands), agencies and officers are able to help news divisions fill those hours with their talent, both established and new.

But, crucially, there’s no expectation — at least not yet — that streaming will supplant network morning shows or prime-time cable news in the near or even medium term. “I think streaming is going to play a role in news, but I don’t think it’s going to play as big a role as everyone thinks,” says Sures, noting the difficulty of producing and delivering news in direct. programming via streaming platforms.

Still, that doesn’t mean the opportunities are lacking for aspiring top-tier journalists. While the “linear” path of starting with a small-market local TV station and working your way up until you sign a network contract isn’t dead yet, the options are more numerous than they appear. have ever been. “There are many other paths to the top, so to speak, and ways to differentiate that weren’t possible and weren’t helpful,” Singer says.

Podcasts, magazines, sub-stacks, TikTok accounts, and YouTube channels are all potential springboards for a networking gig, as is experience in other high-profile areas like politics, as in cases of New Yorkby Olivia Nuzzi (CAA) and The New York TimesThe Daily podcast host Michael Barbaro (UTA).

Sures notes that the networks are focusing on greater diversity among their on-air talent, representing people and areas of the country that in the past might have been excluded or underrepresented. “Not everyone needs to be on the East Coast, not everyone needs to be in an office, not everyone needs to be employed by a mainstream media company “says Adler. Still, there are some guidelines.

“[You have to have] screen presence, you have to be smart, you have to have a point of view, and people want to watch you,” Sures says. When these talents emerge, whether on a social media app or on a South Carolina NBC affiliate’s 11 p.m. newscast, or even off-screen in a subscription newsletter, you can be sure there will be no shortage of agents and agencies looking to offer them a show in the ever-expanding universe of television news.

Non-profit organization in Delhi equips women with digital literacy skills – The New Indian Express http://amigaextreme.com/non-profit-organization-in-delhi-equips-women-with-digital-literacy-skills-the-new-indian-express/ Tue, 17 May 2022 02:08:00 +0000 http://amigaextreme.com/non-profit-organization-in-delhi-equips-women-with-digital-literacy-skills-the-new-indian-express/

Express press service

With the onset of COVID, digital media has become an integral part of our lives, seeping into our daily experiences. However, many people in the country still do not have internet access. Venu Arora, co-founder and executive director of Ideosync Media Combine (IMC) – a Faridabad-based non-profit organization that tries to empower communities with communication and information-sharing skills – shares: “When people go to a metropolitan city like Delhi, they believe they will have a lot of opportunities, however, migrants end up living on the fringes and away from all that information.

Unequal access to the Internet generally affects women from marginalized communities. Even in cases where these women have a digital presence, they face online bullying. To help young girls understand and take ownership of the digital space, IMC launched the Free/Dem Media Pathshala in 2019. The two pathshalas (schools) set up in the localities of Tajpur Pahari, near Badarpur, and Subhash Nagar , provide a safe space for girls to experience the virtual world.

Interns learn the basics of smartphones

Free/Dem Media Pathshalas offers a 16-week media program through which they provide in-depth training in the careful use of smartphones. Through this course, students also explore photography, community radio, and other similar mediums to create digital content. Students also gain insight into gender issues in the digital space. “The basic idea is to empower women,” says Arora, who is also the director of the project.

Apart from conducting this course in Tajpur Pahari and Subhash Nagar, IMC also organizes similar programs in collaboration with other non-profit organizations such as Action for India, Mayur Vihar. In August 2021, Free/Dem partnered with the International Khoj Artists Association to organize a media training course for Afghan women in Khirkee.

An inclusive digital space
The Pathshala is equipped with a library of smartphones allowing trainees to borrow the devices needed for effective training. Upon completion of the program, students are encouraged to create podcasts and videos which are then uploaded to the Free/Dem and IMC websites. Each podcast is based on their lived experiences. Speaking about the themes of the podcast, Free/Dem project coordinator Nishi Kumari says, “We ask these girls about what problems they think can be solved. Now they started watching [the world] and come up with their own ideas.

Hemlata (17), a resident of Tajpur Pahari who has been part of Free/Dem since grade 8, mentions how this program has enabled digital access through a holistic approach. She concludes: “Internet access has become easy for me. I learned how to use a smartphone and I know of issues such as privacy that I did not know before.

New data highlights pupils’ mental health issues, say staff at Shrewsbury school http://amigaextreme.com/new-data-highlights-pupils-mental-health-issues-say-staff-at-shrewsbury-school/ Sun, 15 May 2022 19:35:46 +0000 http://amigaextreme.com/new-data-highlights-pupils-mental-health-issues-say-staff-at-shrewsbury-school/

SHREWSBURY – Stress and anxiety continue to be top issues for students at Oak Middle School and Shrewsbury Secondary School, according to the results of a recently released survey.

Shrewsbury Director of Nursing Noelle Freeman presented the data to the school committee on May 4.

That, in turn, came months after Superintendent Joseph Sawyer reported in January that at least 19 students had been hospitalized with mental health crises so far in the current school year.

“When we returned to school in the fall, we could not have anticipated the level of distress that some of our students are currently experiencing,” Freeman said later at a March 30 school committee meeting. .

At this March 30 meeting, district staff reported that a total of 73 students were referred for mental health reasons to the Mental Health Emergency, Mobile Youth Crisis, or ER.

In total, Freeman said there has been a “marked increase” in the number of students with mental health issues since the start of the school year.

This includes what officials described in March as “intense” feelings of stress and anxiety, depression, self-harm, and suicidal and murderous thoughts.

Survey results highlight concerns

According to regional youth survey results presented more recently and collected from December 2021, 67% of SHS students surveyed said their mental health was “not good” at least sometimes during the pandemic.

At Oak, 40% of students said they had experienced mental health issues in the past 30 days.

The survey further indicated that 15% of Oak students were seriously considering suicide, while 8% had a suicide plan and 3% had attempted suicide. At Oak, the number of students reporting non-suicidal self-harm nearly doubled from 7% in 2019 to 13% in 2021.

“We’re definitely seeing that play out in the number of students being seen by nurses and mental health professionals in buildings for cutting injuries,” Freeman said.

At SHS, 38% of students surveyed said they had felt sad or hopeless in the past 12 months, up from 27% in 2019.

The data was then disaggregated by race and sexual orientation, with Freeman saying the results indicate that students of color and students who identify as LGBTQ+ were at higher risk for anxiety, depression, suicide and other mental health problems.

‘His OKAY for do not be OKAY’

In March, district staff called for increased awareness and continued discussions with students and families about mental health.

They also recommended adding mental and behavioral staff and expanding Shrewsbury’s Level 1 Social and Emotional Learning curriculum, while supporting and expanding digital media education efforts, including monitoring of children’s use of social media, among others.

The school committee in May later said that this survey supported the need for additional staff members who are requested in the budget.

Assistant Director of Special Education and Student Personnel Services, Meghan Bartlett, said the district should also partner with families and community members to keep children safe.

“We need to have conversations with our children and let them know that there are steps to manage their mental health,” Bartlett said.

She encouraged families to talk to their students and acknowledge their feelings. Watch their social media, she says.

She advocated for community members to seek out treatment providers and place their names on waiting lists.

“It’s OK not to be OK,” Bartlett said.

Senator Michael Bennet proposes commission to oversee digital platforms, including social media – CBS Denver http://amigaextreme.com/senator-michael-bennet-proposes-commission-to-oversee-digital-platforms-including-social-media-cbs-denver/ Sat, 14 May 2022 01:22:00 +0000 http://amigaextreme.com/senator-michael-bennet-proposes-commission-to-oversee-digital-platforms-including-social-media-cbs-denver/

DENVER (CBS4) – Hoping to boost public confidence and safety on the internet, Senator Michael Bennet has proposed legislation that would create a commission to oversee companies operating on the internet. Bennet, the senior senator from Colorado, said the proposal is a way to ensure some of the world’s most powerful corporations operate in the best interests of the American people.

As of now, Bennet is the sole sponsor of the bill. He proposed creating a “Digital Platform Commission” that would operate and oversee internet-using businesses the same way the Food and Drug Administration oversees the nation’s pharmaceutical guidelines.

Bennet told CBS4’s Dillon Thomas that the commission would help prioritize and balance free speech, national security and mental health.

“Our opinions are infiltrating social media platforms around the country,” said Bennet, a member of the Senate Intelligence Committee.

In an interview with CBS4, the senator said the commission would oversee regulations and safeguards for big tech companies, including but not limited to platforms like Facebook, YouTube, Google, Amazon, Twitter and Tik Tok. While social media companies are the source of many of some Americans’ concerns, Bennet said the commission will oversee US internet regulation.

Section 230, a law created in the 1990s, is one of the most debated federal laws regarding the powers given to major websites. The law largely grants immunity to companies for content uploaded by third parties. Although Bennet said he thought Section 230 should potentially be overhauled, he felt the commission was a separate step that could be taken to further protect U.S. interests.

“We’ve had almost completely unregulated social media platforms. These companies are no longer startups. They are some of the largest and most dominant companies in America,” Bennett said.

Bennet hoped that the development of a five-person commission, made up of technology experts from different parties and backgrounds, would help the country take steps to regulate big tech instead of allowing other countries or the companies they own. themselves to do so.

“I never see Congress doing that. So I would much rather have a group of people who know the industry and know what they’re talking about on an independent commission,” Bennett said.

“My initial reaction is favourable, although there may be a bit of caution,” said Denise Maes, public policy analyst for Maes Solutions.

Maes, who worked for the ACLU advocating for civil rights, said she was very concerned about the proposed commission’s ability to monitor how Americans exercise their freedom of speech in a modern world, as many use social media to do so.

“One of my concerns is the regulation of free speech,” Maes said. “The regulation of content and what can actually be on the digital platform is of concern.”

Maes, however, noted that most Americans support creating greater accountability for social media platforms when it comes to algorithms, sanity and conspiracy theories.

Bennet said he was confident the commission could protect the First Amendment while preventing big tech from making its own rules.

“What we can’t do is spend another 10 years doing nothing and looking back, and saying we spent another 10 years ignoring this crisis in our country,” Bennett said.

Bennet said his proposal was just that, for now, a proposal. He hoped that the introduction of the bill would start a debate and dialogue about what the commission should look like. He hoped that such a discussion would one day lead to the formation of the commission.

Bennet proposed that the commission be made up of members selected by the president and approved by congress. He suggested that members be given the option of remaining on the committee for longer periods than a typical presidential cycle to prevent parties from rotating committee members for political gain.

FIFA takes on video game EA Sports in new football rivalry http://amigaextreme.com/fifa-takes-on-video-game-ea-sports-in-new-football-rivalry/ Thu, 12 May 2022 10:27:07 +0000 http://amigaextreme.com/fifa-takes-on-video-game-ea-sports-in-new-football-rivalry/

LONDON – The name “FIFA” can conjure up images of the World Cup and football’s greatest players, such as Pelé, Zinedine Zidane or Lionel Messi. The acronym for the sport’s governing body may also remind some of shameless bribery and corruption.

For many, however, it is the video game that is synonymous with FIFA.

For three decades, the Swiss-based football body has enjoyed a thriving and mutually beneficial relationship with EA Sports. The annual edition of the video game, as well as related products, has brought in billions of dollars and has proven so lucrative that FIFA thinks it can earn even more on its own.

FIFA on Tuesday severed the licensing partnership with Electronic Arts Inc., making FIFA23 the last new EA game with participation from both parties.

They now become adversaries.

EA will continue to make football games with the best players and the biggest teams, they will just be stripped of the FIFA branding and called EA Sports FC instead.

A d

Confusingly, perhaps, FIFA24 is also set to hit the shelves next year as the football body is determined to push ahead with its own launch.

EA has already started highlighting its advantages over the FIFA game, given that it has the rights to show 19,000 players from over 700 teams in over 30 leagues playing in 100 stadiums. Manchester United, Barcelona and Paris Saint-Germain will always be there, along with their best players.

“It’s the only place where you can have an authentic, famous and fully representative football experience,” David Jackson, VP of Brand for EA SPORTS FIFA, told The Associated Press. “I think there is an element of potential confusion in the market.”

FIFA’s hyperbole is already trying to undermine EA’s marketing by claiming that it is in talks with several rival game companies and plans to enter the metaverse.

“I can assure you,” said FIFA President Gianni Infantino, “that the only true authentic game bearing the FIFA name will be the best available to football players and fans.”

A d

How this will be achieved is far from clear, although FIFA owns the rights to the world’s greatest football spectacle. The World Cup will disappear from the EA game.

“The name FIFA is the only original world title,” Infantino said. “FIFA 23, FIFA 24, FIFA 25 and FIFA 26, and so on – the constant is the name of FIFA and it will forever remain and remain the best.”

This kind of explosive talk puts pressure on FIFA to deliver on Infantino’s vision of a game that usurps the EA franchise despite being barred from featuring leagues such as the Premier League – and the teams that play there.

“New entrants would face a steep licensing curve to compete with EA,” said Andrew Marok, an analyst covering the digital media sector at investment bank Raymond James.

Football games are big business for EA. The annual report released this week showed revenue of $6.19 billion.

“We’ve just had our biggest year – ever – for EA SPORTS FIFA games,” EA Sports CEO Andrew Wilson told investors on Wednesday, a day after the deal was announced to end. FIFA at the end of the year.

A d

Much of the revenue comes from the Ultimate Team mode, where customers purchase additional content in EA sports games. This generated $1.623 billion in 2021.

“We have historically derived a significant portion of our net revenue from tied sales of our largest and most popular game, FIFA, whose annualized releases are consistently one of the best-selling games on the market,” EA said. to investors.

Brand loyalty will be key from next year. Will players stick with EA’s renowned product or switch to the FIFA-launched rival?

It’s already a competitive market with eFootball, the former Pro Evolution Soccer game produced by the Japanese firm Konami. This game has a partnership with Manchester United, although the record 20-time English champions will still feature in EA’s game thanks to a Premier League deal.

EA has already warned its investors of the risks to its football games business from its rivals.

A d

“Any event or circumstance that has a negative impact on our FIFA franchise, such as the quality of products or services, other products that take up a portion of consumers’ expenses and time, delay or cancellation of the launch of a product or service, increased competition for key licenses or real or perceived security risks, could negatively impact our financial results to a disproportionate extent,” EA said in its annual report.

EA should have an advantage over FIFA by retaining its 300 licensed partners, 30 leagues and federations, 700 teams and 19,000 athletes, JPMorgan analyst David Karnovsky said in a client note.

“While it’s hard to think there won’t be at least some impact of the rebranding on sales, the $150 million available in the absence of licensing fees for FIFA provides enough place in marketing to raise awareness of EA Sports FC,” Karnovsky wrote.

Untangling itself from the world of football politics has its advantages for EA. Tensions between regional confederations have led European body UEFA and its South American counterpart CONMEBOL to bypass FIFA to launch their own meeting of champions. The Finalissima debut will see Italy and Argentina meet at Wembley Stadium in London on June 1. It would seem incongruous for EA to promote its FIFA game during the game.

A d

“What name would you put on a perimeter board at a UEFA-CONMEBOL event? It’s really hard for us to put FIFA there,” said Jackson, EA brand vice president. which used to be a springboard for our brand, and an accelerator of it many years ago, has become less valuable to us over time.”

EA might also have saved the FIFA brand. The fond association with the video game by so many fans outweighed the toxicity of the Sepp Blatter-era organization after sprawling criminal investigations into football corruption were opened in 2015.

“If you ask a young football fan what FIFA is, they are more likely to say a video game than they are the world governing body, but that value lives with us I believe,” Jackson said. “We are the predominant voice in the world of football from an interactive entertainment perspective, and we don’t see a world where that changes.”
