MONTREAL – Canadian travellers hoping to vacation in St. Maarten this winter may have to make alternative plans after hurricane damage forced several airlines to suspend service for the season.Air Canada (TSX:AC) issued an advisory on its website saying that damage caused by hurricanes Irma and Maria has resulted in its suspension of all flights to the Caribbean island. Affected customers can obtain a refund.Transat AT (TSX:TRZ) also says it has suspended service for the season.Flights to St. Maarten were unavailable for booking on WestJet’s (TSX:WJA) website, while Sunwing couldn’t be immediately reached for comment.Other islands that were battered by hurricanes are preparing to welcome Canadian travellers.Montreal-based Transat says it will begin flights from Toronto and Montreal to Puerto Rico in February, while its normal service has resumed to most of Cuba.Transat also says its cruise line partners are reviewing winter itineraries in the Eastern and Southern Caribbean. Revisions are expected to be announced within weeks, but dates of voyage won’t change.

7 March 2008Cooperation between the United Nations and Myanmar and the country’s ongoing constitutional process were on the agenda today as the Secretary-General’s Special Adviser, Ibrahim Gambari, continued his latest mission to the South-East Asian nation. Mr. Gambari met today with Myanmar’s Government Authoritative Team, including the Ministers of Foreign Affairs, Information and Culture. “They held candid discussions on present and future cooperation between Myanmar and the United Nations in the context of the Secretary-General’s good offices mandate,” UN spokesperson Michele Montas told reporters in New York. The Special Adviser also met with members of the Referendum Convening Commission and the Constitution Drafting Committee, and had detailed discussions on the ongoing constitutional process, she added. Last month the authorities in Myanmar announced a constitutional referendum to be held this May, to be followed by “multi-party democratic elections” in 2010. “Mr. Gambari looks forward to holding further discussions with the leadership and Government on Myanmar and all other relevant interlocutors,” Ms. Montas added. Upon his arrival in Yangon yesterday, Mr. Gambari held talks with Myanmar’s Minister for Foreign Affairs, and met with the UN Country Team, the diplomatic corps and the representative of the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC). This is his third visit since last year’s Government crackdown on peaceful protesters. read more
The External Affairs Ministry says it came to light that the stated purpose for the visit in the applications was not in conformity with the actual nature of the visit. “It may be noted that the Business Visa category which had been applied for in the case of 3 persons were issued on the basis of the purpose of the visit being reflected as Conferences, Workshops and Seminars, while the 4th person had been issued a gratis visa and the purpose of the visit being cited as Private,” the statement said. “In fact, there were media reports to the effect that this is an international fact finding delegation with a mandate to probe and prepare a report on the recent impeachment of the former Chief Justice. Further, one of the delegates is on record stating that the delegation would be interviewing, in this regard, members of the Judiciary, Government functionaries, Members of Parliament and the local community. This demonstrates that the visit was not for the purpose of attending Conferences, Workshops and Seminars but undertaking activity surreptitiously which is of an intrusive nature to the sovereignty of Sri Lanka,” the statement said.Considering the prestigious reputation of the IBA, the External Affairs Ministry said it would be expected that the organization would scrupulously adhere to the rules and regulations governing a country’s visa regime. The External Affiars Ministry says the visas of four members of the International Bar Association (IBA) had been revoked as they had violated the visa rules.A statement by the External Affairs Ministry said that following the detection of inaccurate information contained in the visa applications of the 4 member delegation representing IBA, which had unilaterally scheduled a visit to Sri Lanka, regrettably the Government of Sri Lanka was constrained to withdraw visas issued through the Electronic Travel Authorization (ETA) system for 3 applicants and the other by a diplomatic mission. Further, intimidatory behavior on the part of one of the IBA delegates directed at the Sri Lanka High Commission in London is unbecoming, the statement added.The External Affairs Ministry said that in keeping with the Government of Sri Lanka’s interest in transparency, bona-fide applications for visits of this nature are processed with objectivity. However, in keeping with universal practice, appropriate action would be taken in the event there is a misrepresentation of information by a visa applicant.

JOBS MINISTER RICHARD Bruton today confirmed plans to merge Ireland’s five existing workplace relations agencies into just two.The Workplace Relations Bill 2014, as had been mooted, would create the Workplace Relations Commission for initial complaints, and keep in place the Labour Court, for subsequent appeals.The functions of the existing Labour Relations Commission (LRC), National Employment Rights Authority (NERA), Equality Tribunal, and Employment Appeals Tribunal (EAT) will be folded into the two bodies.In a statement this evening, Bruton claimed that the legislation – which has secured government backing – would cut staffing costs by 20% and reduce budgets by €2m (or 10%)He also promised a better service to “employers and employees who wish to avoid or resolve disputes…or have employment rights enforced or adjudicated.”“Enactment of the legislation is targeted by the end of 2014,” Bruton added.The Fine Gael TD began a two-part public consultation on labour dispute resolution in 2011.The aim of the reform was to simplify and speed up Ireland’s workplace complaints process, which at one time required the completion of 30 separate forms, and took up to two years.After eight separate reports, the department found that the dispute resolution process was “so complex that even experienced practitioners find it difficult to comprehend.”Read: Consultation opens on replacement of five employment dispute resolution bodies> read more

In his recent Boston Globe op-ed, DBMediaStrategies president Doug Bailey presented his manifesto on reader comment sections.His conclusion: reader comments devalue journalism, blur the truth and confuse the issues. He suggests publishers rid their sites of user forums as a first step toward restoring journalism’s dignity. Ironically (or maybe not so?) the op-ed saw 190—mostly out of spite, and presumably unedited—reader comments.Our own mediaPRO social network elicited feedback from FOLIO: readers on the topic. Beginning the thread was Rachael Globus, editor-in-chief at Event Publishing LLC, who wrote: “Is this guy [Bailey] for real? … When are publishers going to get it that user-generated content is content? Yes, it’s still a reporter’s job to sift through complex issues to present a coherent narrative and there will always be demand for that. But why in the world would it be beneath a newspaper to host the lively debates its content sparks?” Doing away with reader comments completely may seem extreme. But Bailey’s op-ed brings to light something that publishers are still struggling with: how much unattended—or unedited—content is worthwhile content? “An unattended comment thread will be full of garbage and many are,” blogged Fred Wilson, a venture capitalist and principal of Union Square Ventures. And this sometimes useless user discussion, University of Mississippi professor Samir “Mr. Magazine” Husni told FOLIO:, is a result of editors treating threads as “an easy excuse to have less editing and fact checking” and “to assume that your readers’ comments and letters are true and factual. Editors will never publish some of the stuff in print that they publish on their Web sites, and thus they have no one to blame but themselves.”Reporters Take on a New RoleI’d be lying if I said that FOLIOmag.com didn’t have its share of inappropriate, raging and nonsensical “comments”—which we screen before they are published to the Web. But we also get some very focused analysis from insiders, which can help to advance the story we’re reporting on. But as comment sections continue to gain traction, is it the job of editors and reporters to moderate and lead discussions?“Reporters aren’t trained to be talk show hosts, but that’s what a forum is all about,” said custom publisher Hammock Inc. CEO Rex Hammock. He, like Husni, believes that if editors are not going to moderate comments, then there is no reason to include them as part of a Web presence. The upside to comment maintenance? “Journalists that do it [moderate, edit and offer feedback] and do it well will be better read,” wrote Wilson. “And they’ll be better informed. They’ll get tips in the comment threads, constructive criticism that will help them do their job better, and leads on new stories before others will.”While this may be a bit of optimism about what can be culled from reader comments, at the very least, publishers need to establish that: “Being invited into a discussion is like being invited into someone’s home,” said Hammock. “Add to the conversation and you’ll be rewarded. Be an ass, and you’ll get kicked out.” read more
Property: Canon CommunicationsBuyer: UBMSeller: Apprise Media, Spectrum Equity Investors.Date: September 2010Price: $287 millionTakeaway: Valuations may have slipped for events, but they were the key to the largest b-to-b deal of the year.In the largest deal of the year for both b-to-b publishing and the tradeshow industry, United Business Media acquired medical industry publisher and events producer Canon Communications for $287 million. Canon’s principal focus is on the medical device design and manufacturing and electronics engineering markets, which combined make up more than 65 percent of its overall revenues. The company, which generated $106 million in fiscal 2010, publishes 24 industry magazines, which represent about 35 percent of its annual sales. Nearly half (48 percent) of its revenues come from the more than 40 tradeshows it produces each year in the U.S., Asia and Europe. The tradeshows were of the biggest interest to UBM, which plans to leverage the shows to break into “fast growth markets” like China, India and Brazil.UBM initially merged the electronics brands acquired from Canon Communications with its existing EE Times Group but in December reversed course and decided to detach the units, creating two new groups instead: The UBM Canon Group and the UBM Electronics Group. The former Reed Business Information electronics products, acquired in February 2010 by Canon, were separated from other Canon businesses and merged with the EE Times Group to form the UBM Electronics division. Property: NewsweekBuyer: Sidney HarmanSeller: Washington Post Co. Date: September 2010Price: $1, plus assumption of $47 million in liabilitiesTakeaway: Struggling Newsweek finds new life with an unlikely owner and a joint venture with a dotcom. In 2008, TV Guide sold for $1, plus assumption of debt. In 2010, Newsweek (which lost $30 million in 2009) sold to audio entrepreneur Sidney Harman for $1 plus assumption of $47 million. A number of Newsweek’s top editors—including editor Jon Meacham, Newsweek International editor Fareed Zakaria and longtime correspondent Howard Fineman—left voluntarily shortly after the deal.In November, Newsweek and The Daily Beast announced a 50/50 joint venture. The new company, called The Newsweek Daily Beast Company, is led by four directors: Harman as executive chairman, Daily Beast owner Barry Diller and two others—one appointed from each side. Tina Brown assumed the role of editor-in-chief of both properties while Stephen Colvin, who served as president of The Daily Beast, oversees the combined venture as CEO. Property: True/SlantBuyer: Forbes MediaSeller: True/Slant Date: May 2010Price: N/ATakeaway: The acquisition of a dotcom triggers major edit changes at Forbes. With Forbes’ acquisition of online news and community network True/Slant, founder Lewis Dvorkin took the position of chief product officer with responsibility over all of Forbes’ editorial products.The connections between Forbes and True/Slant, are well established. Dvorkin was executive editor of the magazine from 1996 to 2000; Forbes had an investment in his startup; and Dvorkin was hired in April as a consultant.True/Slant was brought in-house with the intention of revamping much of Forbes’ approach to content. While Forbes president and COO Tim Forbes said in a statement that the “Forbes’ mission and message will not change,” under Dvorkin’s leadership, Forbes.com will be re-architected and the magazine will be redesigned. Of the more than 300 contributors that True/Slant relies on for content, some will continue within Forbes. Dvorkin, in his own statement on the deal, said: “The small True/Slant team, with more than 100 years of Web, publishing and TV experience, will now be working side-by-side with talented and dedicated journalists at Forbes Media. The goal: to work together to further develop a mindset around the power of the Web and traditional news values. With hard work, we can implement new blogging platforms and more efficient digital, print and video content creation models; we can find better ways for audiences to engage with news and information; and we can pursue new integrative approaches for marketers and advertisers.” Property: Publishing arms of Nielsen, RBISellers: Reed Business Information, Nielsen Business MediaTakeaway: The dismantling of the publishing arms of Nielsen and RBI accounted for much of the M&A in 2010 and gave some employees the chance to start over. In 2008, both Nielsen Business Media and Reed Business Information announced they would be selling off the majority of their magazine publishing units (and related digital properties). By April 2010, the RBI titles that were sold made up approximately two thirds of the revenue of the portfolio it was attempting to divest, leaving the company with 23 magazines it said it would fold (although the company continued to do scattered deals with the former publishers and editors of those titles). Reed kept Variety, Marketcast and 411 Publishing, Reed Construction Data and the Buyerzone lead generation business.Buyers included an assortment of strategics and even former RBI employees, such as Peerless Media, a new company formed by former employees at RBI’s Supply Chain Group, which bought back four titles within that group—Logistics Management, Modern Materials Handling, Supply Chain Management Review and Material Handling Product News—which were scheduled to be folded, with backing from EH Publishing. Canon Communications acquired the global assets of RBI’s Electronic Design News, Design News, and Packaging Digest.Nielsen sold eight entertainment and media brands—including The Hollywood Reporter and Billboard—to e5 Global Media in December 2009. In March, Nielsen sold the five brands that made up its travel group to Northstar Travel Media and its four food group brands to Stagnito Media. The definition of “media deal” is changing. Lines are overlapping between traditional media, digital media and the marketing services world (the largest acquisition of the year by a “traditional media” company was Hearst’s $325 million purchase of digital agency iCrossing—although Hearst kicked off 2011 with an $889 million bid for Lagarde’s international publishing operation, including Hachette titles in the U.S.).Deals over the past year tended to fall into two categories: “distressed”—snapping up struggling products for a deep discount; or “transformative”—deals designed to take companies in new directions. Here, Folio: looks at the seven publishing deals with the most ramifications for the industry. Property: WorldcolorBuyer: Quad GraphicsSeller: WorldcolorDate: January 2010Price: $1.4 billion (estimated)Takeaway: The largest deal of the year didn’t involve publishers, but further consolidation of the printing industry.Somehow it’s fitting that the largest publishing-related deal of the year didn’t involve an actual publishing company. In January 2010, Quad Graphics, the number-three printer, announced its intention to buy the number-two printer, Worldcolor (formerly Quebecor World), for an estimated $1.4 billion. Printer R.R. Donnelley had been in hot pursuit of Worldcolor (then Quebecor) in 2009, attempting to buy it for $1.8 billion. Quebecor rejected the offer, believing would trigger a lengthy antitrust review.The new company took the Quad name and reported $4.8 billion in pro forma unaudited revenues for the fiscal year ended March 31. Today, Quad has roughly 28,000 employees at more than 80 facilities worldwide. Property: iCrossingBuyer: HearstSeller: iCrossing, Goldman Sachs, Oak InvestmentDate: June 2010Price: $325 millionTakeaway: Acquisition of digital marketing agency showed larger publishers are looking for transformative bolt-ons. Hearst’s acquisition of iCrossing was one of the most important media deals of the year for a “traditional” publishing company. First, at a whopping $325 million, it was the largest. It was also transformative, as Hearst followed the model developed by Meredith Corp. of buying up small technology and digital-advertising companies to create a new set of services. Hearst created a new division—Hearst Marketing Services—with digital as the focus to start.Hearst originally approached iCrossing in 2009 but was rebuffed by the agency, which started canvassing for buyers. According to Hearst, the acquisition of iCrossing gave it “extensive global marketing capabilities,” including paid search, Web development, search engine optimization, data analytics and mobile/social marketing. “We chose digital marketing services to focus on after an exploration of a number of marketing services because we felt it had the highest growth potential,” says Hearst magazines senior vp Matthew Petersen. “The relationship may start where you’re doing one or two of those services then expand, but more and more we’re being invited into digital agency of record assignments in an RFP situation or proactive basis.” Property: Nation’s Restaurant News/Dowden Health MediaBuyer: Penton Media/High Road Capital PartnersSeller: Lebhar-FriedmanDate: December 2010Price: N/ATakeaway: Lebhar-Friedman was forced to sell off its flagship magazine as well as the remnants of a group it bought for $40 million to square itself with bankers. Lebhar-Friedman, long considered to be one the best-run independent trade publishers, typified the trouble so many publishers got themselves into in recent years by making acquisitions that overextended themselves with bankers and saddled them with covenants that proved unmanageable when the economy turned. In back-to-back deals in December, LF sold its flagship magazine, Nation’s Restaurant News, to Penton Media—which created a Restaurant Group along with existing magazines Restaurant Hospitality and Food Management—as well as its Dowden Health Media unit to private equity firm High Road Capital Partners. Dowden Health Media generates about $20 million, while Nation’s Restaurant News does $15 million in revenue.With the sale, Lebhar-Friedman is now clear of debt and has concluded its relationship with GE Capital, which financed Lebhar’s estimated $40 million acquisition of Dowden Health Media in 2005 (at the time, some private equity bankers told Folio: “We understand LF’s desire to grow beyond the core base, but question this type of move. They paid a large premium to acquire a relatively small player and one that appears off-base in its launch of new regional titles.”) With the sale of NRN, Lebhar-Friedman retains four retail-focused publications: Home Channel News, Chain Store Age, Retailing Today and Drug Store News. “I would have still bought Dowden,” CEO Roger Friedman told Folio:. “It was a good company. But I would have sold off a major piece of it earlier to make the debt go down earlier. So even if there was a downturn, we would have been okay.” read more

WASHINGTON: US President Donald Trump has once again lashed out at Google for manipulating millions of voters in the 2016 presidential elections in favour of then-Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton. “Wow, Report Just Out!

The CNBC reported that “Trump’s tweet appears to refer to documents leaked to conservative group Project Veritas, but the documents do not appear to contain any outright allegation of vote manipulation or attempt to bias the election”. Earlier this month, Trump criticized Google CEO Sundar Pichai for alleged ties to election tampering and China’s military. “@sundarpichai of Google was in the Oval Office working very hard to explain how much he liked me, what a great job the Administration is doing, that Google was not involved with China’s military, that they didn’t help Crooked Hillary over me in the 2016 Election,” he had tweeted. Trump and fellow Republicans have accused tech giants including Google of bias against conservative viewpoints. read more

He wanted to do the season, and the decision was constantly being dealt with in his mind, and unfortunately it was last minute, so it was a little more awkward.“But it was almost at a point of saying, ‘Hey, take some time off, otherwise you’re going to be exhausted.”In a statement, festival artistic director Antoni Cimolino describes Carver as “a much-loved colleague and friend.”He says the festival in southwestern Ontario looks forward to welcoming Carver back to the acting company in an upcoming season.Carver, who hails from Cranbrook, B.C., was to have played the role of Ariel in “The Tempest” alongside Martha Henry as Prospero.Andre Morin will replace Carver in the role.The festival says Carver is “disappointed to miss out” on the production but adds that he’ll still participate in a concert with the Art of Time Ensemble at the Stratford Festival Forum on Aug. 25.“The Tempest” opens May 28, with previews beginning May 10.
