Rise of ad-blockers shows advertising does not understand mobile, say experts

Sat, 10/03/2015 - 16:54
Guardian [UK], by Sam Thielman Posted By: LittleHoodedMonk- Sat, 03 25 2015 04:25:26 GMT New York - Everyone hates mobile ads – even advertisers. In the midst of the advertising industry’s annual summit in New York last week, agency directors, media buyers and other ad-world professionals were up in arms about ad-blocking software expanding and improving beyond their capability to defeat it. Many admitted they have no one to blame but themselves. As executives prepared to descend on Manhattan for Advertising Week, there was one topic of conversation: Apple had just made ad-blocking mainstream. The company’s shiny new mobile operating system, iOS 9, allows anyone using an iPhone to cut out ads,

Daily News announces slew of promotions and hires, including prominent activist

Sat, 10/03/2015 - 16:31
Politico, by Jeremy Barr Posted By: LittleHoodedMonk- Sat, 03 12 2015 04:12:25 GMT In the wake of a downsizing that claimed dozens of newsroom jobs, incoming Daily News editor in chief Jim Rich has announced his first batch of appointments at the struggling tabloid. Perhaps the most notable is Shaun King, a Daily Kos columnist and prominent racial and social justice activist, who joins the News in the newly created position of senior justice writer, Rich told staff in a Friday memo forwarded to Politico. "Shaun’s writing on social inequality, police brutality and race relations in America has been some of the best work done in the country," Rich wrote of King, who starts Oct. 15. King, who has worked as an

Obama vows veto of new short'term budget bills

Sat, 10/03/2015 - 16:31
Investor´s Business Daily, by Andrew Malcolm Posted By: SurferLad- Sat, 03 50 2015 03:50:44 GMT President Obama´s weekly remarks Hi, everybody. Yesterday, we learned that our businesses created another 118,000 new jobs in September. That makes 67 straight months of job creation, and 13.2 million new jobs in all. But we would be doing even better if we didn’t have to keep dealing with crises in Congress every few months. And especially at a time when the global economy is softening, our own growth could slow if Congress doesn’t do away with harmful austerity measures.

In Twelve-Minute Speech to America on Oregon Mass Shooting, Obama Refers to Himself 28 Times

Sat, 10/03/2015 - 16:08
National Review, by Tom S. Elliott Posted By: LittleHoodedMonk- Sat, 03 44 2015 03:44:41 GMT ‘Each time this happens, I am going to bring this up.’ Less than six hours after the mass shooting today in Roseburg, Ore., President Obama called a press conference to demand new gun laws, a move he predicted would spur critics to accuse him of politicizing the issue. If they don’t accuse him of that, they might accuse him of making the tragedy about himself. During today’s twelve-minute address, Obama referred to himself 28 times — more than twice per minute! (N.B.: In arriving at this calculation, I included mention of “we” only when he was clearly including himself as part of the plural pronoun; the many uses of "we"

Congressman Stephen Fincher: From Tea Partier to corporate welfare champion

Sat, 10/03/2015 - 16:08
Washington Examiner, by Timothy P. Carney Posted By: Judy W.- Sat, 03 14 2015 03:14:33 GMT Washington corrupts, and Congressman Stephen Fincher is proof. "I may not be a polished politician," Fincher said when he announced his first run for Congress in 2010, "but as a lifelong farmer I know that most problems can be solved with a little common sense. When I´m elected, I´ll put that common sense to work for everyday Tennesseans, not the special interests. Trillion'dollar bailouts, bloated budgets and boondoggle spending packages aren´t working, at least for my friends and neighbors ..." It would be an understatement to say Fincher has come to terms with boondoggles and special interests. Fincher, once an opponent of the

GOP: Obama´s new regs on ´everything from prairie puddles to power plants´

Investor´s Business Daily, by Andrew Malcolm Posted By: SurferLad- Sat, 03 07 2015 03:07:37 GMT Sen. John Barrasso gives the Republican Party´s Weekly Remarks Hi. I’m Dr. John Barrasso, United States Senator for Wyoming. Let me tell you a story about a family in my home state. Andy Johnson is 32, he works as a welder. He and his wife Katie have four kids and they live out in the country. They have a few cows and some horses. Two years ago, the Johnsons wanted to build a small pond in their front yard. They got their plan approved by the state, and used the pond to provide water for their animals. They thought it

Fate of cargo ship caught in Hurricane Joaquin unknown

Sat, 10/03/2015 - 15:45
Associated Press, by Ben Fox Posted By: PageTurner- Sat, 03 39 2015 02:39:41 GMT ELEUTHERA, Bahamas '' The U.S. Coast Guard resumed its search early Saturday across Bahamian waters for a disabled cargo ship with 33 crewmembers, including 28 Americans, that lost contact during Hurricane Joaquin, which was moving away from the sprawling archipelago. The 735'foot (224'meter) ship named El Faro had taken on water and was earlier reported to be listing at 15 degrees near Crooked Island, one of the islands most battered by the hurricane. The Coast Guard said it hadn´t been able to re'establish communication with the vessel, which was traveling from Jacksonville, Florida, to San Juan, Puerto Rico, when it

Obama urges ´single issue´ voting on guns

Sat, 10/03/2015 - 15:45
Politico, by Sarah Wheaton Posted By: Hazymac- Sat, 03 38 2015 02:38:55 GMT President Barack Obama urged Americans who want to see tighter gun laws to become “single'issue voters.” At a press conference on Friday, Obama predicted that there will be little action in Congress to prevent mass shootings like the one that took place in Roseburg, Oregon, on Thursday until Americans hold elected officials accountable at the polls. “Here’s what you need to do: You have to make sure that anybody that you are voting for is on the right side of this issue,” Obama said. If politicians oppose gun safety measures, he continued, “Even if they’re great on other stuff, you’ve got to

Hillary’s Server Is the Smoking Gun!

Sat, 10/03/2015 - 14:35
National Review Online, by Jonah Goldberg Posted By: MissMolly- Sat, 03 27 2015 02:27:48 GMT Dear Reader (including Kevin McCarthy, who may be too busy putting a cast on his Boehner, having stepped on it so badly), I feel like Donald Trump when asked to list all the reasons why he’s terrific; I have no idea where to begin. Lots of stuff has happened since my last “news”letter. Rather than approach this blank page with the sort of planning and care that you’ve come to expect from this well'crafted digital epistle, I’m going to throw care to the wind and, like Bill Clinton at a Saudi harem, I’m going to just jump right into it.

The awful truth about Obama´s hometown that he and the media ignore in gun discussion

Sat, 10/03/2015 - 14:35
American Thinker, by Thomas Lifson Posted By: magnante- Sat, 03 27 2015 02:27:30 GMT Why has no one asked President Obama what “common sense” gun control measures in addition to those already at work in Chicago he would like to see? Why has no one asked him about the disparity in his concern over a handful of white victims in Orgeon versus his complete ignoring of hundreds of black murder victims in his hometown? Chicago, the town Obama adopted as his own and where his mansion still sits, puts the lie to the vague gun control nostrums he is selling. A highly amusing site called (“Illustrating Chicago Values”) graphically illustrates the ongoing carnage

Trapped in a Little Box

Sat, 10/03/2015 - 13:45
PJ Media, by Richard Fernandez Posted By: Hazymac- Sat, 03 24 2015 02:24:31 GMT When the administration warned Russian president Putin he was foolishly stumbling into a Syrian quagmire, it spoke from its customary vantage of intellectual superiority. It has been constantly waving the Russian away from what they describe as an unwise choice the way an only adult in the room might speak to a child. Peter Baker and Neil MacFarquhar of the New York Times describe the president’s latest attempt to dissuade Russia from making a terrible mistake: “An attempt by Russia and Iran to prop up Assad and try to pacify the population is just going to get them stuck in a

Mayonnaise Is The Worst Condiment

Sat, 10/03/2015 - 13:21
The Federalist, by William Kelly, III Posted By: MissMolly- Sat, 03 23 2015 02:23:01 GMT There exists in this world a condiment below all others. It has all of the flavor of sawdust and the sublime texture of soap scum. Until recently, I was unaware that The Federalist, lovers of freedom, etc., was complicit in its spread. I rise today to defend America—nay, the world—against such scurrilous anti'food propaganda. As all Americans, especially Texans, know, mayonnaise is a tool of oppression used by communists and bland'food lovers everywhere. It is a form of mind control designed to cow you into a sense of complacency about life. Food has flavor, and mayo covers that flavor up. It

Biden to speak to gay rights group as he ponders WH bid

Sat, 10/03/2015 - 13:21
The Hill (Washington, DC), by Jordan Fabian & Amie Parnes Posted By: JoniTx- Sat, 03 08 2015 02:08:54 GMT Vice President Biden would have immediate, strong support within the LGBT community should he decide to run for president. Several top Democrats believe Biden could pull support away from front'runner Hillary Clinton in large part due to his early support for same'sex marriage, a notion Clinton supporters strongly dispute. Biden on Saturday will have a prime opportunity to appeal to lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender voters when he delivers the keynote speech at the annual gala of the Human Rights Campaign, the most influential gay rights group in the country. Before that, Clinton is scheduled to have breakfast with the

8 Things No One Understands About Work'at'Home Moms

Sat, 10/03/2015 - 12:57
PJ Media, by Susan L.M. Goldberg Posted By: JoniTx- Sat, 03 04 2015 02:04:58 GMT Tell someone you work at home and they get jealous of an image that looks a bit like this: You in pajamas, television blasting in the background, surfing the Internet, chatting with friends and getting paid for it. The funny thing is, what I just described (minus the pj’s and perhaps the television) is more likely to occur in an office environment than at home. While I’m at it, let me bust some other myths about work'at'home parenting. 8. We can work when the baby sleeps. This was my initial thought. I also thought I’d give birth naturally and breastfeed.

Obama’s trash talk

Sat, 10/03/2015 - 12:10
Politico, by Edward'Isaac Dovere Posted By: NorthernDog- Sat, 03 00 2015 02:00:54 GMT It’s not just the fourth quarter. It’s trash talk time. President Barack Obama’s never done a good job hiding his disdain for the people he doesn’t like—a long list that includes reporters, Republicans, pretty much every member of Congress, the foreign leaders he considers petty and childish (Vladimir Putin and Benjamin Netanyanu most of all). Everyone would see things his way, he tends to project, if only they were a little smarter and thought it through as thoroughly as he has. (Snip) He showed up ready to mock, with an unimpressed, exaggerated upside down smile just one right cheek mole short

25 Ways to Be a Real Man

Sat, 10/03/2015 - 11:46
American Thinker, by Craig Dunkley Posted By: magnante- Sat, 03 51 2015 01:51:18 GMT In its Men´s Style section, The New York Times recently published a somewhat ridiculous, liberalism'infused article entitled "27 Ways to Be a Modern Man." While a few of the 27 ways made some sense, many of them were so soft'handed and weak that one wonders if the article was meant as a joke (snip) Well, if a modern man is supposed to be a mushy, fashion'conscious crybaby with a melon'baller, then I want no part of it. It´s far better to be a real man. So what are the traits of a real man? There are many, and this list

Hillary Clinton is consistently late. And voters are noticing

Sat, 10/03/2015 - 11:23
CNN, by Brianna Keilar and Dan Merica Posted By: NorthernDog- Sat, 03 46 2015 01:46:40 GMT Davie, Florida ' At 3:30 p.m. Friday, one hour after Hillary Clinton was scheduled to take the stage at the gym at Broward College here, Vikesh Patel and three of his classmates left without catching a glimpse of the Democratic front'runner in this key Florida county. She was running late from a fundraiser. "We´ve been here since one o´clock," said Patel, who doesn´t know much about Clinton but whose parents have followed her and her husband for decades. He and his classmates were also going to work the rally into a paper for a speech class they´re taking. "I guess

After a 1996 Mass Shooting, Australia Enacted Strict Gun Laws. It Hasn’t had a Similar Massacre Since.

Sat, 10/03/2015 - 10:59
Slate Magazine, by Will Oremus Posted By: Krazy Kamper- Sat, 03 47 2015 11:47:23 GMT On April 28, 1996, a gunman opened fire on tourists in a seaside resort in Port Arthur, Tasmania. By the time he was finished, he had killed 35 people and wounded 23 more. It was the worst mass murder in Australia’s history. Twelve days later, Australia’s government did something remarkable. Led by newly elected conservative Prime Minister John Howard, it announced a bipartisan deal with state and local governments to enact sweeping gun'control measures. A decade and a half hence, the results of these policy changes are clear: They worked really, really well. At the heart of the push was

Chaos as HUNDREDS of migrants storm Channel Tunnel in ´massive planned invasion´

Sat, 10/03/2015 - 10:35
Daily Express (UK), by Scott Campbell Posted By: Attercliffe- Sat, 03 42 2015 11:42:06 GMT Eurotunnel services between Folkestone and Calais have been suspended until at least 10am in both directions – with passengers facing delays of up to six hours. Officials believe the "large and co-ordinated" group planned the intrusion before attempting to reach Britain at around 12.30am on Saturday. A Eurotunnel sokesman said: "It´s a massive invasion and intrusion by a very large and co-ordinated group of migrants. "They are being gathered up by the police authorities." He added: "It´s clearly an organised attack when it comes in such a large number, there are over 100 in this one group. "They arrived together an in a well-organised manner,
