Vanity Fair Introduces a Metered Paywall

first_imgIt’s also notable that, as Condé Nast aggressively chases scale, it continues to place its preeminent viral content producers behind paywalls. Chief revenue officer Pam Drucker Mann told employees earlier this month that the company again hit records for digital and social audiences in February, and that its digital revenues will equal its print revenues in the second quarter.Instituting a paywall at VF.com had reportedly been a goal of Jones’s predecessor, longtime editor-in-chief Graydon Carter, before he revealed plans to step down last fall after 25 years running the magazine.Elsewhere at the company, Golf Digest unveiled a new subscription-based instructional video product, Golf Digest All Access ($99-per-year), on April 2. Vanity Fair is the latest magazine to place its online content behind a soft paywall in a bid to drum up more consumer-driven revenue.The Radhika Jones-led title becomes the third at Condé Nast to institute a metered paywall, following The New Yorker in 2014 and Wired earlier this year. Like Wired, Vanity Fair will allow visitors to read up to four articles for free each month, after which they’ll be asked to subscribe for an annual fee of $19.99—the same price for both print-and-digital or digital-only subscriptions.Continuing a trend carried over from last year, Vanity Fair is staking its value to readers on the critical role it plays in the current news climate.“At a moment when quality journalism is not a luxury, but a necessity, your commitment will enable us to invest in our reporting, writing, photography, and video, expanding into new areas and onto new platforms, with you, our core reader and viewer, clearly in focus,” Jones told readers in a note announcing the change. “We cannot do it without you.”last_img read more

first_imgThe pre-Budget rally witnessed in stock markets in the last couple of days sustained itself on Friday, responding to Union Finance Ministery Arun Jaitley’s statement that his party’s defeat in the recent Delhi Assembly polls won’t slowdown economic reforms. The 30-scrip benchmark index – S&P BSE Sensex  – has risen about 860 points in four straight trading sessions starting from Tuesday, to end slightly above 29,000 on Friday. Analysts are expecting it to cross the 30,000-mark, either days before the Budget or around 28 February, the day it will be presented. The target for the 50-scrip Nifty is 9,200.On Thursday, Jaitley, while speaking in the presence of US Treasury Secretary Jack Lew in New Delhi, had said, “The fact that four (state assembly) elections have been won and one has not been won is absolutely no ground for believing that there will be any slowdown on the path which we have undertaken.”Brokerages and investors are expecting Budget 2015 to contain proposals to increase capital spending and extend tax breaks for the manufacturing sector, which has continued to remain sluggish.

Mamata accuses Modi of holding rally on scamsters ground

first_imgMamata Banerjee, the chief minister of West Bengal and chief of Trinamool Congress (TMC), waves towards her supporters during a road show ahead of the last phase of India`s general election in Kolkata, India on 16 May 2019. Photo: ReutersIndiia’s West Bengal chief minister Mamata Banerjee on Thursday alleged that prime minister Narendra Modi’s election rally in Bengal’s Mathurapur constituency was held at a ground which belongs to the owner of an illegal microfinance company.Taking a swipe at Modi for repeatedly accusing her and her party leaders of being involved in Saradha and Rose Valley chit fund scam, the Trinamool Congress supremo urged the police to immediately start a case against that “chit fund owner”.”The ground where PM Modi is holding his rally today belongs to Kapil Mondal, the owner of a microfinance company without license. Go and check. And he (Modi) talks about chit fund scams?” Banerjee said during her meeting at the same parliamentary constituency.”I have got all the documents. It has come to our knowledge just yesterday (Wednesday) that the person has collected millions of rupees from people in the name of his company and illegally bought lands here. I will hand over all the documents to the local police here so that a case could be immediately started against the chit fund owner,” she said.India`s prime minister Narendra Modi waves towards his supporters during an election campaign rally in New Delhi, India, on 8 May 2019. Photo: Reuters Meta: Indiia’s West Bengal chief minister Mamata Banerjee on Thursday alleged that prime minister Narendra Modi`s election rally in Bengal`s Mathurapur constituency was held at a ground which belongs to the owner of an illegal microfinance companyShe also wondered whether the BJP is getting a share of the money collected by the microfinance company owner.”Is he giving a share of the money to BJP? Maybe they are. Where is Narendra Modi? You talk about Narada (sting footage case), Saradha. But this is how you people start such scams,” she said with a hint of sarcasm in her voice.The owner of the land, however, refuted Banerjee’s allegations and said his company has been given a clean chit by central regulatory authorities like the Reserve Bank of India and the Securities and Exchange Board of India (SEBI).”The SEBI and RBI has checked everything here and given me a clean chit. Maybe she is claiming it to be illegal because she could not hold the rally on this ground. Had I permitted her to hold a meeting here, everything would have become legal,” Mondal said.last_img

Another strong month reports IATA despite some shocks to the travel industry

first_img GENEVA — Global passenger traffic remains strong, says IATA, which in its February traffic results report a second month of demand to begin 2017.Total revenue passenger kilometres (RPKs) rose 4.8%, compared to the same month last year. Although this was below growth achieved in January, year-to-year comparisons are distorted due to the fact February 2016 was a leap month. Adjusting for the one fewer day this year, the underlying growth rate was estimated at 8.6%, just under January’s increase of 8.9%. Monthly capacity (available seat kilometers or ASKs) increased by 2.7%, and load factor rose 1.6 percentage points to 79.5%, which was the highest ever recorded for February.“The strong demand momentum from January has continued, supported by lower fares and a healthier economic backdrop. Although we remain concerned over the impact of any travel restrictions or closing of borders, we have not seen the attempted US ban on travel from six countries translate into an identifiable traffic trend. Overall travel demand continues to grow at a robust rate,” said Alexandre de Juniac, IATA’s Director General and CEO.More news:  Virgin Voyages de-activates Quebec accounts at FirstMates agent portalFebruary international passenger demand rose 5.8% compared to February 2016, which was down compared to the 9.1% yearly increase recorded in January. Adjusting for the leap year, however, growth actually accelerated slightly compared to January. Total capacity climbed 3.4%, and load factor rose 1.8 percentage points to 78.4%.European carriers saw February demand increase by 6.5% compared to a year ago, while Middle East carriers had the strongest growth, with a 9.5% demand increase. North American airlines’ traffic climbed 0.3%, which was the slowest among the regions. However, adjusting for the leap year, growth was estimated at 3.4%.The bottom line? “The year has opened with some shocks”, says IATA, like the attempted travel ban to the U.S. and the electronics ban from certain airports in the Middle East and North Africa on direct flights to the U.S. and the U.K. The potential implications of the Brexit talks on the air transport industry are significant and the political rhetoric of protectionism and closing of borders is adding to the ambiguity.More news:  Hotel charges Bollywood star $8.50 for two bananas and the Internet has thoughts“It’s intolerable that governments continue to add to the uncertainties facing the air transport industry by failing to engage airline operational know-how on issues that can damage public confidence. The introduction of restrictions on the carry-on of large electronic devices was a missed opportunity and the result was a measure that cannot stand-up to the scrutiny of public confidence in the long term. Although Australia’s measures were also implemented without consulting the industry, they at least demonstrate the potential to mitigate the threat with less disruptive means. We all want to keep flying secure. And we can do that most effectively by working together,” said de Juniac.
