The National Law Journal Ends Weekly Tabloid Launches Monthly Glossy

first_img Beth Frerking, editor-in-chief of The National Law Journal, attributed the change to audience reading habits — people just don’t have time for a weekly print offering. “Based on the regular feedback we receive, our subscribers prefer to keep informed of breaking headlines throughout the workday, and often find it easier to read our expert analysis in the evening or over the weekend when they have more time to digest our in-depth content,” Frerking said in the release. ALM is changing up its print offerings with The National Law Journal. The weekly news tabloid, first launched in 1978, will publish as a monthly magazine starting with the April issue. The magazine — with a circulation of around 9,000 — will continue the Journal’s coverage of federal courts and the U.S. Supreme Court, as well as court appointments and lawmaking news on the state and federal levels. The cover of The National Law Journal Magazine for its inaugural April 2017 issue. While the new magazine is technically a print launch, in a release today, Richard Caruso, VP and GM of legal media at ALM, called this an expansion of the publisher’s “digital-first strategy.” The reduction in print frequency allows the team at The National Law Journal to focus more on daily digital coverage. ALM owns several other law publications and events, including the daily print newspaper The New York Law Journal, and the monthly magazines Corporate Counsel and LegalTech News.last_img read more

Jet Airways founder Naresh Goyal agrees to step down as chairman

first_imgNaresh Goyal of Jet AirwaysReutersIn a major development, Jet Airways founder Naresh Goyal has agreed to step down as the chairman of the beleaguered airline. After months of deliberation, the exit of Naresh Goyal would allow the board to go ahead with the debt restructuring plan of the cash-strapped airline.According to Reuters, Goyal’s decision to step down as chairman comes a day after an urgent meeting of lenders with Goyal and Etihad Airways Chief Executive Officer Tony Douglas. The parties discussed various issues between two promoters as well as lenders and Etihad.As per the plan, a part of debt would be converted to long term equity-like instruments. Moreover, rescheduling of loans is also on cards which would help the debt-laden airline to repay its past loans.The plan also includes an allotment of 11.4 crore shares to the lenders which would eventually make them the largest shareholder. During the meeting, Goyal, who holds 51 per cent stake in the airline, proposed to step down to save one of India’s biggest private airlines. A Jet Airways passenger plane (Reuters)Reuters/Punit Paranjpe/FilesMeanwhile, Eithad, which owns a minority stake of 24 per cent in Jet Airways, continues to be reluctant on infusing funding of about Rs 7 billion to the airline. Since last few months, Jet Airways is burdened with a billion dollars in debt.The airline has defaulted on its loan repayments multiple times recently. As a result, it hasn’t paid its paid pilots, leasing firms and suppliers for months. The non-payment of debt has forced the lessors to ground more than a dozen of its planes this month. In fact in a filing to the exchanges earlier today, Jet informed that six additional aircraft has been grounded for the same reason.Bloomberg has reported the representatives from Jet Airways and Etihad was told by the lenders that they would need to inject equity to maintain their shareholding and stabilize its operations. But minority stakeholder, Etihad proposed stringent terms and conditions which were not acceptable to lenders; the discussion is yet to reach a conclusion.It is to be noted that the debt restructuring plan is still at a nascent stage and would need the consent of at least 66 per cent of the lenders before State Bank of India led consortium can do something substantial.last_img read more

UK Parliament passes Brexit bill

first_imgA television grab show members of the House of Lords debate the Brexit Bill. The House of Lords gave final approval on Monday to a bill empowering Prime Minister Theresa May to notify EU leaders of Britain’s intention to leave the European Union following last year’s referendum. Photo: AFPParliament gave its approval Monday for Prime Minister Theresa May to start Britain’s withdrawal from the European Union, even as Scotland signalled its opposition by announcing plans for a fresh independence vote.The House of Lords rejected a last-ditch attempt to amend a bill empowering May to begin Brexit, paving the way for it to become law as early as Tuesday.The prime minister could then trigger Article 50 of the EU’s Lisbon Treaty at any time, starting two years of talks that will end with Britain becoming the first country to leave the bloc.May’s spokesman sought to play down speculation that she would send her notification letter to the European Council on Tuesday, when the bill is expected to receive royal assent from Queen Elizabeth II.“We have been clear that the prime minister will trigger Article 50 by the end of March,” her spokesman said ahead of the vote, heavily emphasising the word “end”.But the prospect of an imminent start to Brexit was enough to push the nationalist devolved government in Scotland into calling for a new independence referendum.May has said Britain will leave Europe’s single market in order to cut immigration, a move that the Scottish National Party (SNP) in power in Edinburgh has warned would be highly damaging to jobs and growth.SNP First Minister Nicola Sturgeon has said since the June referendum vote for Brexit that Scotland, where a majority wanted to stay in the EU, sought a different future.On Monday she made good on her warning, promising to give Scotland “a choice at the end of this process” by early 2019 — before Britain leaves the EU.The European Commission, however, quickly responded saying that Scotland would have to reapply to join the EU rather than inheriting Britain’s membership.Countdown to BrexitMay has the power to block the vote and said that another referendum, after Scots voted by 55 percent to reject independence in 2014, would only cause “uncertainty and division”.But Sturgeon’s call pushes to centre stage one of the prime minister’s biggest concerns about Brexit—that it could lead to the break-up of the United Kingdom—as she prepares to fire the starting gun.The other 27 European leaders are prepared for Britain to trigger Article 50, which begins a two-year countdown to Brexit, this week.However, speculation is growing that it may now be delayed until after a March 25 summit in Rome to mark the EU’s 60th birthday—timing that would likely be welcomed in Brussels.Once May has notified the EU of her decision by letter, the bloc will take just 48 hours to issue its first draft proposal for the negotiations, with a follow-up meeting planned on April 6.The actual talks are not expected to begin for months.The bill empowering May to begin Brexit was forced on the government by a Supreme Court ruling and was held up when the House of Lords voted for amendments demanding guarantees for EU nationals’ rights and a parliamentary vote on the final withdrawal deal.Brexit minister David Davis successfully urged MPs to overturn the changes earlier Monday, saying: “We will not enter the negotiations with our hands tied.”The House of Lords then conceded, passing the bill unamended late on Monday.‘Shame on you’The Lords amendment demanding protections for more than three million Europeans living in Britain was defeated by 335 votes to 287 by MPs—prompting shouts of “shame on you” from protesters outside.Around 150 people had gathered to urge MPs to back the change, including Karin Templin, a 39-year-old architect who was born in the US but is now British.“I’m appalled at the UK government, at this stupid ridiculous game that means they won’t guarantee the rights of everybody who wants to stay in their home and in their jobs. I’m disgusted,” she said.May’s government says it wants to guarantee Europeans’ rights to stay in Britain, but cannot until EU leaders offer similar rights to British expatriates.The other amendment that was overturned would have given parliament the right to decide whether to accept the final Brexit deal.May has promised lawmakers a vote on the deal but only if she accepts it—insisting her ability to walk away will strengthen her hand in negotiations.last_img read more

How to Drive App Discovery and Engagement

first_img This story originally appeared on Bizness Apps Free Webinar | Sept. 9: The Entrepreneur’s Playbook for Going Global August 10, 2016 Growing a business sometimes requires thinking outside the box. Register Now » “I made my app, but where are all my customers?!” As consumers look to mobile apps for the majority of their product and service needs, it’s more crucial than ever for businesses to capitalize on this market. Creating your business application is a great first step, but having customers download and return to your app is a whole other battle. Proper marketing is what sets your app apart from your competitors, ensuring top customer acquisition and retention.Check out some of the most important tactics that successful marketers are using to drive app discovery and engagement through Google.Organic searchWhen you’re just getting started, it’s important your business allocates its budget as efficiently as possible. Utilizing natural –or unpaid — Google search results through app indexing can make your app easily discoverable. App indexing allows you to attract potential users through Google search, matching what customers search with your app’s relative content. Basic SEO strategy can be used to ensure your app ranks well in Google’s natural search results, allowing you to boost app downloads at little to no cost.Paid searchGoogle play store adsReach billions of Android users with ads that appear within the Google Play Store’s search results. You can now manage your app’s ads like you do traditional text ads with keywords and bids. Google also offers tools to track metrics, such as app installations.Mobile app install adsIt’s a new world. There are now more Google searches on mobile than desktops. Search engines allow you to capitalize on this volume of traffic with paid search results. Much like organic search, mobile app install ads can be customized to particular searches to drive downloads to your app. Google is also looking to launch “streamable” apps that allow users to test them out before downloading, which would increase the importance of app indexing & paid mobile engagement ads.Re-engaging customersEnsuring that customer returns to your app is extremely important and equally difficult. A year ago, nearly 20% of apps were abandoned after their first use. Although this number is likely to decline, it is crucial to build a retention strategy that sets your app up for success.Deep linking is an extremely effective re-engagement strategy. Proper app indexing strategies will allow users to return to your app directly from the Google search results page. You can deep link searches into an already installed app and continue to market it just as you would before the user downloaded. This helps ensure your users return frequently. Be sure to keep up with your app’s push notifications too. An effective push notification strategy is a simple way to re-engage app users and improve retention rates.Your mobile app presence is absolutely necessary in today’s world. Be sure to leverage your app’s potential. 3 min readlast_img read more
