The event started in 1935 as a three-day sporting event timed to coincide with the return of miners and trappers loaded down with the fruits of a winter of work.The name “Fur Rendezvous” derives from swap meets at which fur trappers would gather to sell their winter harvests. In early Anchorage, these usually took place in mid-February which started the tradition for the Fur Rondy.

Star Trek: Discovery is one of CBS’ flagship streaming series. CBS All Access CBS and Viacom, two television programming companies that split more than a decade ago, finalized a merger deal Tuesday to recombine, creating a single entity with about $30 billion in market value. The new company, which will be called ViacomCBS, brings brands like CBS and Showtime together with the likes of Nickelodeon, MTV, BET, Comedy Central and Paramount. A CBS-Viacom reunion is the latest in a wave of mergers and acquisitions of traditional media companies, as they try to come to grips with the scale of their emerging competitors in the tech world. Netflix and YouTube dominate eyeballs online, and companies like Apple and Amazon, with market caps hovering around $1 trillion, are delving more deeply into video programming. In response, legacy media companies are consolidating to bulk up. Following megadeals like AT&T buying Time Warner and Disney taking over Fox, CBS and Viacom become the latest to turn to M&A as they face a changing landscape where streaming’s on the rise and traditional pay-TV is slipping. (Disclosure: CBS Corp. is the parent of CNET.)During a call with analysts, executives said they hoped to bulk up CBS All Access with kids programming from Viacom, which owns Nickelodeon. Executives added that they continue to like the idea of pricing CBS All Access under $10 a month because they remain interested in driving up subscribers. One of the key motivations for combining, they said in a joint release, was streaming video. CBS and Viacom said a merged company would be in a better position to accelerate a “direct-to-consumer” strategy — industry jargon for streaming services that don’t involve any traditional TV distributor like a cable company. The companies collectively operate CBS All Access and Showtime’s streaming option, along with Pluto TV (a free streaming TV service in the US) and newcomers such as CBSN, ET Live and niche players like Noggin. They noted that the merger could give them opportunities to expand their streaming internationally. The companies also said their merger will improve opportunities in advertising and deals with distributors and create a stronger player to license their catalog to other platforms worldwide. The companies said they expect the deal, which still needs to win regulatory approval and clear other conditions, will close by the end of this year. Viacom shares will be converted into shares of CBS, with CBS shareholders owning about 61% of the combined company, and Viacom the rest.Viacom’s head, Bob Bakish, will lead the combined company as president and CEO, while CBS’s leader, Joe Ianniello, will serve as chairman and CEO of CBS proper. “Our unique ability to produce premium and popular content for global audiences at scale — for our own platforms and for our partners around the world — will enable us to maximize our business for today, while positioning us to lead for years to come,” Bakish said in a statement.

By J. K. Schmid, Special to the AFROIt’s a 40-minute wait for the 26 Mondawmin Metro bus at stop 4993, in Westport. When it arrives, it’s empty. Dump trucks rumble up and down Annapolis Road every five minutes. Across the street, former businesses are boarded up or completely pulverized into piles of half-bricks. On the bus stop side, home after home is boarded up. The stand of bright blue chicory plants between row houses grows five feet tall and almost hides the discarded Royal Farms cups and empty bags of Utz snacks.To the north, the Wheelabrator smokestack reads “Baltimore.”Other than the trucks, it’s a quiet and lonely spot.Blighted conditions in communities like Westport in South Baltimore are common in Baltimore regions outlined topographically as the “Black Butterfly.” (Photo credit by John Schmid)But, Westport isn’t alone.The South Baltimore community sits in the “Black butterfly,” the apex of the left or west wing of a shape that describes the pattern of mostly Black neighborhoods spread throughout Baltimore City.Transportation, housing, access to food; these are issues that blight huge swaths of the Black butterfly, and Westport may not be the most challenged community.Renee Hatcher and Lawrence Brown have completed a project called Baltimore Equity, a joint effort between the University of Baltimore and Morgan State University. Hatcher was a teaching fellow at the Univ. of Baltimore’s School of Law Community Development Clinic, but she’s now an assistant professor of law and program director at The John Marshall Law School Business Enterprise Law Clinic in Chicago.Lawrence Brown is assistant professor in the Morgan School of Community Health and Policy and coined the term “Black butterfly.”Coming together, sharing knowledge and students of law and policy, a so-called powermap and toolkit are now published at equitybaltimore.org. It took two years of work.“This idea is to just try to provide information that is more accessible to folks who are actually every day striving to improve their community,” Hatcher told the AFRO.The powermap lays out the availability, or lack of services and accomodations enjoyed by the center of Baltimore, a “White L” shape that skews disproportionately to the city’s White residents. As investment in communities deteriorate, indicated by the availability of health professionals and lead abatement, banking and financing, a viable housing market or transportation access, communities are color coded from pool table green to blood red. Colors are tied to a numerical score for the services available. North Baltimore/Guildford/Homeland, (the darkest green) scores 23.5 out of 26. Westport, (red), scores an eight. Greenmount East, which is the darkest red, scores a one.The final array of colors ultimately reflects the redlining patterns of green, yellow and red of Depression-era Baltimore housing policy.“How can communities have control over what happens in their neighborhood or how can they address certain issues, like their quality of life? That’s the idea behind the toolkit,” Hatcher said. ”What are some ways that people can organize and build institutions that can actually address their material needs and improve their quality of life, in divested, mostly low income, Black neighborhoods in Baltimore?”The toolkit offers suggestions and options such as community land trusts, community benefit agreements, and local hiring ordinances.The new powermap captures the broad strokes of Baltimore’s many crises of dignity and justice, but doesn’t quite reach into the plight of another dark red neighborhood, like Sandtown. While some blocks are almost wholly abandoned, others look untouched since Mayor Schmoke’s revitalization efforts in the 1990s.“Even within the wings of the butterfly, you can have wings that are mostly black, but have different spots and patterns in them,” Brown said. “I think of Baltimore in that same sense. When I say ‘Black butterfly,’ there are White enclaves in the Black butterfly, just as there are Black enclaves in the White L. It’s not this completely homogenous demographic layout, there’s complication within that metaphor, and I think the powermap illustrates the complications connected to the metaphor White L and Black butterfly.”Hatcher and Brown both say that with a working concept like Baltimore Equity, they expect the Baltimore model will prove portable to other cities like, Washington, D.C. and Chicago. Yet, Hatcher and Brown believe the Baltimore model can be improved further.“It’s a good place to start, and it would be nice to drill down into neighborhood statistical areas,” Brown said. “The powermap is utilizing community statistical areas and there are 55 in the city. But there are over 255 neighborhood statistical areas, and you could have three or four neighborhood statistical areas inside of those different community areas. So, you could drill down to even smaller units of analysis to get even more detail and the variation within the communities’ statistical areas.”

01May Committee approves Rep. Webber’s bill to streamline autonomous vehicle technology Categories: Webber News The Michigan House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee today approved legislation introduced by state Rep. Michael Webber to make vehicle platooning easier for semi-trucks in Michigan. Vehicle platooning refers to cars or trucks that are electronically linked to coordinate speeds in order to enhance safety, save time and energy, and reduce emissions. It is already legal on Michigan roads.Webber’s bill exempts semi-trucks operating in a platoon from a requirement that they keep a certain distance between each other.“As Vice Chair of the Transportation and Infrastructure Committee, I’ve seen how autonomous vehicle technology continues to advance and how there will be various portions of the law that need to be updated to reflect changes,” said Webber, of Rochester Hills. “This legislation embraces the use of autonomous vehicles on Michigan roadways and streamlines the process of vehicle platooning.”Webber said the legislation keeps the Michigan Vehicle Code consistent with new technology.House Bill 5749 moves to the full House for consideration.###
