RCMP gathering DNA from men and boys in Manitoba First Nation as

first_img(The remains of Teresa Robinson, 11, were found last May. The RCMP now asking for DNA samples from boys and men in Garden Hill First Nation. APTN/file)Cara McKenna APTN National NewsRCMP investigators have taken the unusual step of requesting DNA samples from boys and men from a northern Manitoba First Nation community where the remains of an 11-year-old girl were found during a search last May, according to the band’s chief.Garden Hill First Nation Chief Arnold Flett said several RCMP officers have been knocking on doors in the community since Monday asking men aged 15 to 50 years old to allow a sample of their DNA to be taken at a local office used by the Mounties.He said the RCMP officers have told community members the request is part of the investigation into the death of Teresa Robinson, 11, whose partial remains were discovered during a search last May.Robinson’s death remains unsolved and police are treating the case as a homicide.Flett said this is one of the rare times RCMP investigators have returned to the community to gather evidence as part of the investigation into Robinson’s death over the past nine months. He said he does not know the status of the investigation.Flett said the community generally agrees with the DNA request.“We informed the community (of the DNA testing) and there’s no opposition to it,” Flett said. “It’s not forced, it’s being requested.”Flett said he hopes this will lead to a resolution for the community of about 3,000 people which continues to feel the impact of Robinson’s violent death.“We’d like to see this be solved,” said Flett. “The people of Garden Hill would like to see that happen.”He said the investigators are expected to remain in Garden Hill until Thursday gathering DNA samples.Manitoba RCMP confirmed late Wednesday that the officers were gathering DNA as part of the investigation into Robinson’s death.“The investigation into the murder of Teresa Robinson has remained an active case since our officers were first contacted and deployed to Garden Hill First Nation in the spring of 2015,” said Sgt. Bert Paquet, in an emailed statement. “While we are not in a position to discuss all the specifics of this ongoing case, we can confirm that our investigators have collected DNA samples from males of Garden Hill First Nation as one of several techniques used by officers assigned to the case.” read more

Virtual Events Come Into Their Own

first_imgBetter Leads Through hosted its second annual “iconference” in June on the InXpo platform, which included 16 sessions over two days. The major change from 2008 is the targeted attendance of financial advisors—a “higher-level and more difficult conference to accomplish”—says Forbes Media vice president and investments editor, Matt Schifrin. The goal of the iconference was to draw a high-level audience (retail investors are the typical attendees), without charging a fee. For these highly-targeted advisor leads, Forbes was able to price sponsorship packages between $7,500 to $37,500.Forbes sent invites to select financial advisors. They then received a coupon code to attend the virtual event for free while Forbes charged $75 for attendees who joined without a code. The incentive for busy advisors? Ten continuing education credits awarded through the Certified Financial Planners Board of Standards. In May, Nielsen’s Photo District News launched its first virtual tradeshow, powered by ON24, free for professional and advanced amateur photographers. The tradeshow consisted of two events held two weeks apart. The first day was designed for photography professionals; the second for a targeted “pro-sumers,” serious consumers interested in new technologies. This second event  featured “a major e-commerce component in which attendees were be able to buy equipment directly within the virtual exhibit booths,” says Biener.While Biener tends to “shy away from [virtual event] bells and whistles,” PDN’s first foray into the photo marketplace had “enhancements and incorporated high-definition graphics and robust video” to appeal to more visual attendees as opposed to its typical b-to-b sector, content-focused attendees. The virtual event, launched strategically around Father’s Day (when the bulk of large photography purchases are made) attracted more than 18,500 registrants, with a follow-up series planned for later in 2009. Metrics That Woo AdvertisersWatt Publishing, a b-to-b publisher specializing in the agri-business market, ran its first virtual event in April with the InXpo platform. Besides using its Twitter integration, Jeff Miller, Watt’s director of e-strategy sales and marketing, says the company focused on learning how to use the metrics InXpo offers. “What we felt was helpful was not only looking at who was visiting the booths but the ability to create profiles based on the visitor’s actions in the environment itself,” says Miller. “At its core, this is a lead generation device.”While virtual events are developing stronger marketing plans and incentives for sponsors and exhibitors, Summit Business Media’s Futures, targeting futures, options and derivative traders, is considering upping the cost of entry for its i-Trade shows. Exhibitor booths are priced around $4,500.“We try and base this price on the cost per lead, which is tough to determine because we don’t have an exact number,” says Futures publisher and editorial director Ginger Szala. Currently, its virtual event silver sponsorships run $10,000 per show, with a $12,500 gold sponsorship offering sponsors the option of a separate speaking time that won’t conflict with the tradeshow’s pre-scheduled speakers.‘Conferences Will Never Be Replaced’A number of publishers have opted to forgo their live events this year due to cost restrictions and as a response to across-the-board cuts in travel budgets. However, Haymarket Media, which uses Unisfair’s platform, has decided to integrate both virtual and physical events for its SC Congress (a spin off of IT security title SC Magazine). Exhibitors at physical events will be able to buy a booth inside a year-round virtual environment for an additional fee, according to director of business development Tony Keefe. “We are trying to underpin our physical events by offering a guarantee to give sponsors and exhibitors more confidence,” he adds. Exhibitors are guaranteed at least one virtual event per month; on the low end, those who only buy a booth in the virtual environment are guaranteed 100 leads, according to Keefe. E-conference sponsors, which have their distinct speaking sessions in which they can address the audience, are guaranteed 500 leads, with no extra charge for more leads than that.Nielsen Business Media has grown revenue and online event execution by 50 percent every year over the past three years, says Biener. “Of all of the features marketers are looking for, there is nothing else that answers the questions in legacy media better than virtual events.” However, “We aren’t producing these in place of actual events, but as complementary resources. Physical conferences will never be replaced.” SIDEBAR #1 Virtual Vendors: What’s on the HorizonAs virtual events continue to boom, vendors are trying to keep up with technology extras while still offering affordable packages. Here, some of the latest platform innovations and what’s to come this year from some of the biggest vendors.InXpoPublishing Clients: Forbes Media, TechTarget, Ziff Davis Enterprises, Summit Business MediaPrice Range: $25,000-$35,000, but this price tag can range up into the six figures for more extensive branding, environment customizations, booths and Webcasts.What’s New: InXpo was the first to fully integrate with Twitter, allowing for full information integration into back-end reporting. The platform is enterprise-ready, so it can easily plug-and-play into any third-party technology. UnisfairPublishing Clients: Penton Media, Haymarket Media, The EconomistPrice Range: $30,000-$50,000 per event.What’s New: Unisfair has separated the user interface from the event management functionality, allowing customers to control the entire look and feel of the virtual experience. It also offers lead ranking and qualification analytics, which allow customers to rank leads based on a comprehensive data model populated during the event.ON24Publishing Clients: Penton Media, United Business Media, Nielsen Business Media, McGraw-Hill, Crain Communications, Reed Business InformationPrice Range: Hosting will cost $20,000-$50,000 on average.What’s New: ON24 offers enhanced interactivity and increased engagement with advanced 3-D technologies. They also have new applications which include e-commerce capabilities, mobile and virtual learning centers. There’s no doubt that virtual events have their fair share of naysayers. Access Intelligence CEO Don Pazour once compared them to virtual sex.But as the market begins to stabilize in what is now the new norm, no one is laughing as virtual events become go-to resources for publishers in every market. Vendors have ramped up social media offerings to meet clients’ needs—InXpo, for example, was the first to fully integrate Twitter—while magazine publishers tweak show offerings to attract hyper-targeted attendee leads. “A big area of improvement that I’ve seen on virtual platforms is the virtual lounge area,” says Eric Biener, vice president of business development for Nielsen Business Media. “It allows the audience to communicate. I don’t consider these types of events ‘virtual tradeshows,’ but actually white label b-to-b social networks.” No longer are virtual trade shows a place to log on and zone out; they are valuable lead generation tools and virtual playgrounds for attendees to interact. center_img SIDEBAR #2Archive EtiquetteAs a value-add for sponsors and exhibitors, it’s become common practice to keep sponsor logos and exhibit booths alive on publisher sites. How long an event is archived and how a publisher markets the event after it is archived depends on the publisher and advertiser expectations. Here, three publishers weigh in the etiquette behind maintaining and promoting archived events.“InXpo suggested that we keep our conferences on demand for two months after the live event. We not only do this, but we also have an e-mail account set up specifically for attendee questions. Even though our iconference is on demand, we continue to advertise the event. Also, we take content from the iconference and excerpt it, so, for example, I can spin off short videos for” -Matt Schifrin, Forbes Media“All of our digital events are archived for three to six months. We have a full production staff (two producers, two editors, three sales) and don’t treat our virtual events like a subsidiary. Our archive is exactly the same as it is live; the exhibitor booths are up but instead of being instant messaging-based, they are e-mail based. Our exhibitors can refresh their content themselves, or with our coaching and help. Our team does a majority of the heavy lifting on refreshing this content since exhibitors are not only paying for the delivery, but for our customer service team.”-Eric Biener, Nielsen Business Media“We send a weekly e-mail that informs attendees about updates to exhibitor information. We suggest exhibitors and sponsors put new information in their booths (and keep logos intact) throughout the three-month period that the event is on demand. This way, we can market it for them.-Ginger Szala, Summit Business Medialast_img read more

Say Media Nabs Business Insider Editor

first_imgSay Media’s tech site ReadWrite has named a new editor-in-chief. Again.Industry vet Owen Thomas has agreed to come to ReadWrite, replacing Dan Lyons who joined the company in October. Lyons left on April 1 for a position at marketing software company, HubSpot.Thomas–one of several candidates for the gig, according to Say Media spokesmen via TechCrunch–had most recently been West Coast Editor for Business Insider, but held editorial leadership roles at several big-name brands before that, including VentureBeat, NBC Universal and Gawker’s Valleywag. “A decade ago, Richard MacManus launched ReadWrite by noting how the Web was beginning to fulfill its potential as a two-way medium–one meant for conversation, not broadcasting,” Thomas says in a release. “I’m proud to build on that heritage by leading a team that will explore where technology is taking us next, with an analytical and critical eye.”Prepared statements aside, Thomas is known for his snark. It’s a voice that that fits in with the Say Media’s trademarked “Point-of-View Publishing” and a general rise in first-person storytelling.”Owen is a brilliant writer with great experience covering every aspect of the technology industry,” says Kate Lewis, senior vice president and editorial director at Say Media. “He has a distinct point-of-view and a cleverness that makes his work resonate both inside and outside of his community.”Thomas’ hire comes a little over two years after Say Media acquired the site in December of 2011, and just six months following its rebranding from ReadWriteWeb to ReadWrite.To stay updated on the latest FOLIO: news, become a Facebook fan and follow us on Twitter!last_img read more

Gawker Upgrades Its Kinja Commenting System

first_imgKinja originally launched in December of 2012.  “To paraphrase Nick [Denton, founder and CEO of Gawker Media], it was developed to solve the tragedy of comments that can be a toxic and poisonous section of a news site or blog,” says Lauren Bertolini, community development manager It is difficult to argue that Internet trolls have become an endemic problem for publishers looking to create quality conversations that engage serious readers. And while Bertolini doesn’t believe there is a way to rid the Web of trolls, she does believe there are better ways to control the conversations of Gawker’s approximately 20 million monthly site visitors. “If you give people the tools to engage and promote a discussion then hopefully they will utilize it,” Bertolini says.  Social Media is in Kinja’s DNA, but its built around news content, thus making it a unique product. Registered users can create a homepage where they can post blogs, share content from users and editors and store comments posted on any of the Gawker Media sites. Users can also follow writers, other users and integrate social media platforms like Facebook and Twitter into their homepage. Editors from each vertical will have the same tools available and are expected to be active members of the community. This incentivizes both the reader and the writer to participate in a manner that keeps the conversation moving forward. “The revamped commenting system debuting today will refine and sharpen that heckling, and make it more likely, we hope, that informed sources and subjects will bring their voices to bear on our stories, unmediated and of their own volition,” explains Gawker editor-in-chief John Cook in a post about the new platform. “It banishes untrusted or new sources to the outer reaches in a ‘pending queue,’ while privileging and highlighting threads started by readers that have been found useful in the past.”Bertonlini adds that while Gawker is primarily a news-producing operation, the ability for readers to contribute to the content by having a conversation around it is important. “We produce news and that’s what our foundation is. We understand the tools that you need to create content and we wanted a platform that was simple and easy to use that can build a rich story and conversation. We are giving people control of the conversation,” she says.Social blogging is not a new concept, but Kinja is unique in that it merges professional and amateur content into one space. This of course raises provocative questions about crowdsourcing content: How could this impact professional journalists? Will readers ultimately take control of content? Bertolini says that is not a concern for the company: “Our content is still edited by John Cook or our other editors and they will always decide what gets posted. The editors are still in control. But we have hired people out of comments.” Gawker Media rolled out its redesigned platform this week across all of its verticals, which include Gawker, Jezebel, Deadspin and a just re-introduced, Silicon Valley-focused Valleywag. Along with all this is a significant upgrade to Gawker’s homegrown commenting platform Kinja, which has been tweaked to surface more constructive content and “banish” pointless or excessively harsh commenters. last_img read more

Avengers Endgame press conference Superheroes leave empty chairs to honour the fallen

first_imgAvengers: Endgame posterTwitterAvengers: Endgame is all set to release on April 26 and ahead of the theatrical release, the filmmakers held a press conference. To make things more interesting, the Marvel superheroes spared some empty chairs at the press conference with a view to honouring the heroes they lost in Avengers: Infinity War.It is a known fact that quite a lot of superheroes were killed off in the previous Avengers film, Infinity War. Thanks to Thanos, superheroes such as Spider-Man, Doctor Strange, Black Panther, Scarlett Witch, Winter Soldier, Nick Fury, Star-Lord, Drax, to name a few. Their loss wasn’t unrecognised by the Marvel heroes as the Endgame heroes honoured their colleagues. By symbolising honour towards the heroes who were once Avengers, quite a few chairs were kept empty.The same was shared by a New York Times journalist on his Twitter feed as part of the live-feed. In the picture, with the Avengers logo, most of Endgame’s actors such as Karen Gillan, Paul Rudd, Scarlett Johansson, Kevin Feige, Robert Downey Jr., Don Cheadle, Chris Hemsworth, Danai Gurira, Jeremy Renner, Anthony Russo, Chris Evans, Joe Russo, Brie Larson, and Mark Ruffalo including filmmaker Joe Russo, were all part of the press conference.The ‘Avengers: Endgame’ LA press conference left empty chairs for their fallen comrades ?(via @kylebuchanan)— Fandom (@getFANDOM) April 7, 2019Avengers: Endgame press conferenceTwitterSpoiler related questions were subtly dodged by all the actors but they mostly spoke about their experiences of being a part of MCU. While honouring the fallen comrades was a good strategy, it is certain that most or maybe all of them will come back to life. Considering how Tom Holland is already promoting Spider-Man: Far From Home where he deals with a new villain (Mysterio), it is obvious that the superheroes plan to bring back their Avengers colleagues.With only a few more days to go before the release of Avengers: Endgame, all eyes are on the calendar. To promote the film, Marvel Studios is taking a lot of efforts to spread the word that one of the biggest franchise films is coming to an end. Avengers is one of the only franchises to have a plethora of actors joining hands. With every part, the Avengers family only grew at an exponential rate. Starting from just a few Avengers tackling Loki in the first film to adding more comrades to their team as new challenges befell them. We sure would like to know how the remaining Avengers plan to bring back the dead.last_img read more
