Australian pastry shop invents doughnut that glows in the dark

first_img(WSVN) – A doughnut makes for a great late-night treat, but imagine if they were glow-in-the-dark.Well, imagine no longer because a pastry shop in Australia has developed the “Glownut,” a doughnut that has glow-in-the-dark icing.Although they may look radioactive, the icing gets its glow from a form of vitamin B, which is commonly used in glow-in-the-dark foods.The doughnut reportedly has no unnatural dyes or additives, making the doughnut completely natural.Copyright 2019 Sunbeam Television Corp.

Penny Pinching at Budget Travel

first_imgThe editors at Budget Travel are awfully proud of their just-published 10th anniversary issue. In a statement in the June issue, they congratulate themselves heartily on their forward thinking. And, a flack from the magazine sent me a free copy along with an offer to speak to one of the self-satisfied editors myself.If Budget Travel is looking ahead, they are looking ahead to last January, and the launch of Everywhere. Like that magazine, BT is now the business end of an online community, which will continue to generate text and pictures for the magazine, once even the Tin Jubilee has passed.I have a history of being cynical about community-generated content. What, one might ask, makes the freelance writers and photographers that have produced the content of magazines like BT in the past different from members of the magical “community” that are poised to create a revolution on the page? If the only answers are “a paycheck,” and “expertise,” then cynicism is the only reasonable response.However, from what I’ve gathered, BT, unlike EW, is paying their citizen-senators somewhat decently, and the magazine will continue to underwrite travel expenses for major articles. People who contribute something of value deserve value in return and this level is probably about right for this magazine. Despite the imagined glamour of travel writing, travel sections of newspapers and smaller magazines have always been partially underwritten by journalists hoping to break even on their recent vacations. Being dubious of the motives of social late bloomers like BT, though, is not the same thing as being dubious of community. Readers, whether they are involved through online tools or not, are a good thing at a publication. As bigger newsstand glossies have become increasingly slick, increasingly expensive, and increasingly dependent on product placement, they have forfeited the once taken-for-granted link between readership and collective. While today one might read the New Yorker, I doubt many New Yorker readers feel like a member of a society by virtue of having a subscription, as once they surely did. Encouraging involvement through reader submissions is good, and if an online portal seems more available than a brown paper envelope and a transom that’s also fine. (Though it might be worth a try to print the editorial office address at sizes larger than 4 pt and in places more obvious than in a column of boilerplate.)But of course, when you publish, it doesn’t just matter what you do, it also matters what results are. As of now, EW is coming closer to that communal ideal than BT, which seems just a bit too self-aware, still a bit too slick, and a bit too editor-controlled to really pull off the neighborhood-newspaper feel that one would guess both (at least claim to be) after. A real community organ offers a chorus of discordant voices. That beautiful cacophony still eludes both of these magazines.[EDITOR’S NOTE:Buy Jandos’ new book!]last_img read more

Mag and Appboy Partner to Offer Publishers an Expanded Mobile Platform

first_imgMag+ announced its partnership with Appboy Wednesday, bringing a new management platform to the company’s various digital publishers looking to deepen reader relationships on mobile.Mag+, a publishing platform for creating content optimized for mobile, counts magazines like The Atlantic and New York Magazine and international corporations among its customers. These publishers will now have access to Appboy’s mobile relationship management (MRM) platform to build their businesses through mobile.“Monetization and engagement are the biggest challenges of digital publishing today,” contends Mike Haney, Mag+ co-founder and chief creative officer, in a statement. “Appboy helps companies by offering deep insights about their readers and targeted communications to segments of those readers.” In a rapidly evolving mobile ecosystem, the partnership between the two companies will help Mag+’s nearly 1,500 apps build a long-term, sustainable mobile business, contends Mark Ghermezian, CEO of Appboy.“By giving publishers tools to understand and communicate with their readers on an individual level we enable them to drive higher engagement and move their audience down the purchase funnel,” Ghermezian says, in a statement.Benefits of the partnership for businesses include a host of tools that help monitor customer activity and track in-app behaviors. Publishers will now be able to minimize negative app store reviews by using an in-app customer support tool, automate marketing efforts to reduce time spent managing specific campaigns and promote engaged readership via push notifications, in-app messages and email.Businesses can then use specified data to further their efforts to convert passive users into paid subscribers through targeted offers and upsells.“By bringing sophisticated marketing tools to mobile, the platform empowers digital publishers to derive more value from their apps,” says Haney.last_img read more

A Giant MultiDimensional Chess Game Publishing in the Age of Platforms

first_imgCredit: NYU SPSLike its inaugural edition last year, speakers at the 2nd annual PubTech Connect conference—as the name implies, focused on the intersection of book publishing and technology—featured a formidable contingent of both new and legacy media representatives eager to share the ways their companies are finding readers and driving new business in an increasingly digitized world.It seems a well-established consensus that trust and brand recognition will be media’s life preserver amid a rising tide of fake news and shifting consumption habits, but speakers at PubTech (organized by Publishers Weekly and NYU’s SPS Center for Publishing) particularly emphasized that protecting your brand means listening to what your audience wants, even if it runs against your own expectations.Vox Media publisher Melissa Bell, on a morning panel focused on innovation, described her company’s content strategy as “a giant multidimensional chess game” to determine which types of articles or videos resonate with different audiences on different channels.“We’re using data to check our own assumptions,” she said. When Refinery29 debuted its first podcast, “Strong Opinions Loosely Held,” in early 2016, host (and R29 exec producer) Elisa Kreisinger told attendees the concept originated as a video series. But research into the interests and wants of the brand’s core users revealed, among numerous other insights, that what R29’s audience really wanted was a podcast.Two seasons, four million downloads, and a Shorty Award later, “Strong Opinions Loosely Held” has recently debuted its own video series on Facebook Watch, and provided Refinery29 with a lesson on the importance of giving readers what they ask for.“Sometimes user research doesn’t bring you the answers you want,” said Kreisinger, cautioning attendees not to jump into video for video’s sake, but to examine their own resources, see what their competitors are doing poorly, and seriously examine the potential ROI.“Fast, cheap, and good,” she added. “You can have two of them.”Protecting the BrandKeith Grossman, Bloomberg Media’s chief revenue officer, echoed that sentiment on the following panel, asserting that the damaging that “bad, cheap video” can do to a media brand far outweighs the downside of cheaply produced audio content.Hayley Romer, publisher of The Atlantic (a 160-year-old brand, Grossman duly noted), agreed, saying that while it’s important for brands to expand into new environments, particularly digital ones, that expansion must happen in a way that feels authentic and natural to the brand’s identity.“It’s not that we don’t see value in Snapchat’s platform or its user base,” said Romer, giving an example. “We just haven’t figured out the way The Atlantic can be itself on Snapchat yet.”That panel was introduced by NYU marketing professor and longtime publishing exec Jane Grenier, who outlined her three marketing trends for publishers to watch in 2018:“Publishing in the internet of everything,” — particularly salient to marketers, Grenier said, is the ways voice search requests (to Apple’s Siri, Amazon’s Alexa, or Google’s assistant, among others) differ from those typed into search engines.“Speak human to me” — with a reference to Europe’s looming GDPR regulation, which will require marketers to lay bare the ways their collecting and processing user data in clear and transparent terms.“Marketing in a post-advertising world” — the decline of interruptive advertising and the rise of story-driven marketing.That contextual framework led to a conversation, during Grossman’s panel, about the importance of a diversified approach and the perils of basing one’s business strategy too heavily on one distribution channel or another.“Anyone who wanted to be rational about it knew that this moment would one day come,” declared Grossman, referencing Facebook’s recent decision to de-prioritize content from publishers, which was swiftly followed by the shuttering of several Facebook-heavy new media brands.These potentially competing priorities—embracing a multi-channel content strategy while also remaining focused on a core mission and a unified brand voice—yields a narrow path for publishers to traverse, a feeling Axios media reporter Sara Fischer seemed to evoke on an afternoon panel when she stated that assignment editing is the most difficult thing about publishing today.“You can’t rely solely on tech platforms for your business model,” added Fischer, before noting that we’re now seeing the manifold consequences of platforms being allowed to innovate without any regulation.Who’s Afraid of the Big Bad Platform?Media’s reckoning with the modern platform landscape took center stage on the conference’s closing keynote, in which Wired senior writer Jessi Hempel interviewed Ben Lerer, CEO of Group Nine Media (NowThis, Thrillist, and The Dodo, among others).Lerer agreed with Rupert Murdoch’s recent assertion that Facebook ought to be writing publishers checks in exchange for distributing their content to its users, and predicted that it will indeed happen—the first of many assertions that perked up the late-afternoon crowd.The discussion quickly returned to Facebook’s News Feed shakeup, with Hempel referencing (without directly naming the company) LittleThings’ abrupt closure last month, which its CEO said was directly caused by Facebook’s tweak to its algorithm.“It happened because they ran out of money in February,” Lerer replied.Lerer said Group Nine, which itself has achieved tremendous scale by leveraging Facebook, Snapchat, and YouTube, among others, is working around those platforms’ changes “beautifully.”“They didn’t de-prioritize media content. They de-prioritized memes and fake news.” Lerer continued, not to put too fine a point on things. “If your business is based on hacking the algorithm, you’re going to go out of business when there’s a tweak to that algorithm.”Brand, trust, and quality are still what matters most, he added.Things got interesting in the Q&A portion when one attendee (prefaced by an apology for the tough question) pressed Lerer on the fact that several ostensibly thriving, VC-funded new media startups, including his own, have undergone layoffs in the past year.Lerer said such contractions are “just a part of growing up as a media company,” and noted that Group Nine and others like Buzzfeed spent their early history expanding and hiring at breakneck pace, and the eventual need to budget and reevaluate what worked and what didn’t was a natural part of the process.Hempel jumped in to pivot the discussion toward the ways companies can support employees when layoffs in the media industry have seemingly become the rule as much as the exception.Lerer acknowledged that while there remain a lot of kinks to work out in the distributed content model, it’s important to recognize that media companies aren’t here just to build sustainable businesses, but thriving ones.“If the foundation of your company isn’t to create lasting brands and trusted content, why bother going into publishing at all?”Highlights from the second annual PubTech Connect ranged far wider than we have space to do justice here, including discussions featuring the New York Times Book Review editor Pamela Paul as well as NYT assistant editor Sam Dolnick, Food52 CEO Amanda Hesser, Andrew Brown of Google Play Books, Penguin Random House marketing VP Kristin Hassler, and numerous others from across the media and book publishing space.For more from PubTech Connect, click here.last_img read more

Connecticut Military Affairs Office Keeps Sights on Sub Base

first_img Dan Cohen AUTHOR Connecticut’s Office Military Affairs (OMA) has begun to evolve after it was first created eight years ago, but its primary focus remains supporting Naval Submarine Base New London and ensuring it does not become a candidate for closure in a future BRAC round.The need for the office became apparent after state and local officials successfully fought to convince the 2005 BRAC Commission to overturn DOD’s recommendation to close the installation.“The idea was that the state of Connecticut could no longer afford to ignore the fact that the submarine base in Groton had a vital impact on our communities in southeastern Connecticut, the economy of those communities and the economy of the state,” Rob Simmons, the Republican congressman for Connecticut’s second district in 2005, told the Day.The state established OMA in 2007, with the goal of coordinating efforts to prevent the closure or downsizing of the sub base, and to serve as a liaison to local and state officials on defense issues emanating from Washington.One of the office’s responsibilities is using $40 million set aside by the Connecticut General Assembly to support New London through investments in its on-base infrastructure and training capabilities. So far the state has funded five projects at the sub base, with a sixth to be completed this summer. The state’s Bond Commission approved two more projects in May.“I didn’t want to empty the checkbook on my first day,” Bob Ross, who has led OMA since 2009, told the Day.More recently, the office has taken on a greater role as an advocate for the state’s active-duty personnel and their families. For example, Ross worked with superintendents of area magnet schools to save some spots for military families who have not yet moved to Connecticut when the schools’ admissions lotteries are held.And when the next BRAC does occur, Ross is confident the submarine base will survive. It has “history, heritage and national significance” and “synergy that can’t be duplicated.”last_img read more

OEA Grant Funds Economic Diversification Program in Norfolk

first_img Dan Cohen AUTHOR The Old Dominion University Center for Enterprise Innovation in Norfolk, Va., has launched a new initiative designed to encourage government contractors to expand into commercial markets.For Elizabeth Dietzmann, the director of GOV2COM, the mission is clear. “We have amazingly talented government contractors. They need to learn how to target commercial markets, develop commercial skills, foster relationships in the commercial sector. These are mature companies; they just have to expand into other areas,” she told Inside Biz.GOV2COM is funded through a grant from DOD’s Office of Economic Adjustment (OEA).Dietzmann’s recipe for diversifying southeastern Virginia’s economy will start with networking. “I want to bring all sorts of people to the table and ask them how can we do business and diversify our economy. The key is getting all of these people in the room so they can start the dialogue,” she said.Dietzmann already has begun discussions with leaders in sectors such as offshore wind energy, cybersecurity and sea level rise.“The goal is going to bring together disparate parts of the business community, and let them collaborate and build relationships, because that’s how we build jobs; that’s how we diversify our economy,” she told Inside Biz.last_img read more

House Armed Services Panel to Mark Up Full 2020 NDAA Bill Wednesday

first_imgThe House Armed Services Committee will mark up its fiscal 2020 annual defense authorization bill Wednesday after most of the legislation advanced through the panel’s subcommittees last week.Overall, the Democrat-led House’s fiscal year 2020 NDAA would authorize a $733 billion defense budget, including $633 billion for the Pentagon’s base budget and $69 billion in overseas contingency funding.The Senate Armed Services Committee completed the majority of its NDAA markup activity behind closed doors last month.During the House subcommittees’ markups last week, most of the major policy debate was saved for the full committee markup after wrangling over contentious issues, Military Times reported.One of the issues includes prohibiting the use of Pentagon funds for the administration’s southern border barrier. It also would narrow to $1.5 billion the amount of 2020 military construction funds the Pentagon can transfer within its budget.The draft also does not address the administration’s space force proposal, but on Monday lawmakers struck a bipartisan agreement to include an amendment to create the military branch during the bill’s debate, according to a Roll Call report.Both chambers could pass their full committee drafts by the end of June, allowing the summer for administration, the Republican-led Senate and House to work out a compromise deal toward an overall fiscal 2020 budget agreement.Here is a quick roundup of the important defense hearings this week:House Armed Services Committee markup of its fiscal 2020 NDAA bill, , 10 a.m.House Veterans’ Affairs Committee hearing with agency officials testifying about modernization of the VA’s electronic records system, Weds., 10:15 a.m. ADC AUTHORlast_img read more

Kanye West Sets Internet Afire By Announcing Release Of Two New Albums

first_img Twitter Facebook Kanye West Sets Internet Afire By Announcing Release Of Two New Albums Following a lengthy hiatus from social media – during which he ostensibly retreated to the mountains of Wyoming to begin crafting his latest opus with the help of Kid Cudi, Nas, Travis Scott, Drake, and others – Yeezus resurrected his Twitter account, previously dormant for 11 months, and began hurling psalm-like advice and other inscrutable tweets into the social ether.

During a recent interview with his interior design collaborator Axel Vervoordt in The Hollywood Reporter, West expounded further on his newfound Zen, saying “We do these sneakers that sell out and [people say], ‘Oh, this is the number one brand’ … and I don’t wish to be number one anymore, I wish to be water.”Over the days since the April 13 interview, West has continued his enigmatic tweets, trading deadpan assertions such as “trend is always late,” and “stop lyin about s***. Just stop lyin” with longer missives like, “let’s be less concerned with ownership of ideas. It is important that ideas see the light of day even if you don’t get the credit for them. Let’s be less concerned with credit awards and external validation.”All of which brings us finally to today, where just hours ago West dropped the bombshell(s) across a rapid-fire series of four tweets: And, of course, the web immediately lit up with speculation.  Already the unofficial Kanye West subreddit has a stickied thread titled ALBUM HYPE, and articles are likely being written or already live on every major music publication as we speak.According to Pitchfork, West filed trademark paperwork for “Kids See Ghost” for, “coverage of everything from merch to streaming services to films and TV shows,” leading us to question whether West’s plan for his collaboration with Cudi will come as a follow-up of sorts to his previous GRAMMY-winning supergroup-style teamwork with Jay-Z as heard on Watch The Throne.Details on official titles for both West’s new solo album and his forthcoming matchup with Kid Cudi remain forthcoming, but at the time of this writing, West has also revealed that a long-awaited new album from Pusha T and new music from Teyana Taylor will be released on May 25 and June 22, respectively.Catching Up On Music News Powered By The Recording Academy Just Got Easier.

I wanted to show their more intimate moments. The power of nostalgia for a kiss and warm embraces. Memories of a love that puts you in a spell, ‘un amor asi.'”While the duo, which comprises Li Saumet and Simon Mejia, celebrates its latest release, it continues to see the success of the single “To My Love,” remixed by Puerto Rican producer Tainy on their 2015’s Amanecer.
