Penguin Random House, the world’s largest book publisher, and rival Simon & Schuster have called off a $2.2 billion merger deal, the Penguin owner said in a statement Monday.

Bertelsmann, a German media group that owns Penguin, initially said it would appeal a The decision of the American judge who said his purchase of Simon & Schuster would be illegal because he would touch the authors’ salary.

But Bertelsmann said in a statement on Monday that it will “advance the growth of its global book publishing business without the previously planned merger of Penguin Random House and Simon & Schuster.”

Reuters reported on Sunday that the German company failed to convince Paramount Global, the owner of Simon & Schuster, to extend its deal and appeal the judge’s decision.

Judge Florence Pan of the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia ruled Oct. 31 that the Justice Department demonstrated the deal could significantly lessen competition “in the market for U.S. publishing rights to the most popular books.” sold”.

With the dissolution of the agreement, Penguin will pay a termination fee of $200 million to Paramount.

Paramount said Monday that Simon & Schuster was a “non-core asset” for Paramount. “It is not video-based and therefore does not fit strategically into Paramount’s broader portfolio,” the company said in a filing about the termination of the deal.

The Justice Department did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

Unlike most merger battles, which focus on what consumers pay, Biden Administration argued that the deal should be stopped because it would lead to less competition for bestselling books and lower advances for authors who earn $250,000 or more.

The decision comes as the Biden administration has made clear that it intends to tackle what it sees as monopoly positions, blaming them, among other things, for rising meat prices and soaring concert ticket prices.

The book industry has seen a series of consolidations in recent years and critics feared another big merger would reduce competition while making life harder for smaller publishers.

Penguin is already by far the largest US publisher. Its authors include cookbook author Ina Garten and novelists Zadie Smith and Danielle Steel, while Simon & Schuster publishes Stephen King, Jennifer Weiner and Hillary Rodham Clinton, among others.

The US Department of Justice filed a lawsuit seeking to terminate the agreement in November 2021.

In hearings held in August, the government argued that the five largest publishers control 90% of the market, and that a combined Penguin and Simon & Schuster would control almost half of the book publishing rights market at success, while its closest competitors would be less than half its size.

King, author of bestsellers including The Stand and The Shining, was among the authors and agents who testified at the trial, arguing it would lessen competition.

“You might as well say you’re going to have a husband and wife bidding against each other for the same house. It’s kind of ridiculous,” King told the court. “Consolidation is bad for competition.”

Why closing our schools won’t save money https://tromsosjakklubb.com/why-closing-our-schools-wont-save-money/ Sat, 19 Nov 2022 18:37:27 +0000 https://tromsosjakklubb.com/why-closing-our-schools-wont-save-money/ By Joel Potier Updated: seven hours ago Published: 1 a day ago Kindergarten teacher Carla Jenner leads students in a word game Monday morning, Oct. 31, 2022 at Nunaka Valley Elementary School in Anchorage.

Updated: seven hours ago Published: 1 a day ago

The six school closures proposed by the Anchorage School District will, in coming years, contribute to an annual loss of about $4.5 million in state and municipal revenue.

This is something that district leaders know but have not explained to the public.

Since the State of Alaska funds smaller schools at a higher rate, ASD will forgo state and municipal funds when they close and consolidate these schools.

When the district claims $3.9-4.1 million in savings from closures, it doesn’t last, but for a few years at best. The plan builds on a provision of state law that guarantees funding at pre-consolidation levels for the first two years after a school closes, with a reduction in years three and four. Within five years, the schools involved in these consolidations will have to fully absorb this loss of funding, facing a reduction in state and municipal funds of a total of $4.5 million.

The district finds no efficiency, but instead digs a deeper hole with these consolidations.

The latest projected savings for the school closure in my neighborhood, Nunaka Valley, is $245,783. Due to how the state funding formula works, closing and consolidating this school will cost the district $640,000 in annual state and municipal revenue. Thus, once funding at pre-consolidation levels is exhausted, this closure will contribute to a significant shortfall.

Consolidations would displace a considerable number of students for minimal short-term savings. This will be especially traumatic for vulnerable populations at the five Title 1 schools. As the district plans to eliminate highly walkable schools, its transportation plans involve longer, more dangerous walking routes and more bus expenses. .

Even the short-term savings announced through school closures may not materialize in the next two years. ASD has not yet explained the calculations to the public or the board. Much depends on the reuse of buildings rather than the efficiencies found through consolidation itself.

District management knows that closures don’t save money in the long run. Whenever this is mentioned, they change the subject to talk about the non-monetary benefits gained from consolidation, such as increased specialist services and reduced mixed classes. These are precious things, but are they better than a place where a child feels safe and known? Is it better than a place where they can walk safely and is a vibrant hub for their community? Once the other cuts of $56 million have been determined, why think that students in consolidated schools will have more access to special services? And if these services survive the cuts this year, what will happen in 4-5 years when pre-consolidation level funding is lost and they have to adjust to a 9% funding cut?

The other thing the district mentions is the projected enrollment and population loss. But the evidence provided is insufficient and, in some cases, misleading. It’s entirely possible that the ASD will close schools in parts of town where more young families are moving and having children, because no community-specific birth rate data has been used and what is quoted for Anchorage dates back a few years. Enrollment has increased again this year, but to date the district has not provided specific enrollment numbers for fiscal year 2023 in town hall presentations or on the budget solution webpage for the fiscal year. 2024. Listings update reduces shortfall from $68 million to $60 million.

It’s undeniable that there are ASD buildings that could be used more fully, but the district needs to find ways to do this that don’t disrupt our children too much. And it can be done. Neighborhood schools can share buildings with charter schools and add preschool capacity.

It’s time for Anchorage to embrace what we have in our walkable neighborhood elementary schools, instead of ignoring Alaska’s funding formula and making the budget situation worse.

Governments in various economies around the world are increasing their military spending on UAVs. According to a report by the Bard College Drone Center in 2017, the US DoD plans to spend US$6.97 billion on drones and related technologies in 2018. This would increase the country’s military spending on drones. by 21%. in 2018. According to the defense budget document, it is analyzed that the US DoD plans to invest 90% more than it had planned in 2013.

In addition, countries in the Asia-Pacific region are increasing their defense budgets. With increasing defense budgets, countries plan to invest heavily in the deployment of UAV technology. For example, in 2015, Taiwan presented the prototype of the largest military drone in the country. Later in 2017, Singapore offered drones and urban warfare training facilities to support the Philippines’ fight against militants in Marawi. In July 2017, China launched production of the CH-5 Rainbow drone, which is projected as a competitor to the US MQ-9 Reaper drone capable of attacking ground targets. In addition, the country is trying to bridge the military drone sales gap with Israel, which is the top exporter of military drones and accounts for more than 50% of military drone exports. Also, the United States has approved the sale of military drones to India. Such developments are expected to boost the growth of the drone market in the APAC region.

Nearly three weeks after Denver Public Schools announced plans to close multiple schools, the district is now holding its only public comment meeting on the decision.

Fairview parent Summer Patterson is one of dozens of parents who have registered to speak at Monday’s meeting.

“They only think about money and numbers, and that’s wrong,” Patterson said. “They don’t really think about raising these kids and what they’re going through.”

The district recently reduced its list of ten schools to five, but Fairview Elementary is still on closure listing. A DPS spokesperson said closing schools would save the district millions of dollars, enough to hire a few dozen more teachers.

“I want them to know how much of a family this community is. Like, everyone knows everyone here, all the kids know each other,” she said. “You can’t take that away from these kids.”

Milo Marquez, president of the Latino Education Coalition, told CBS News Colorado that the consolidation list continues to disproportionately affect Latino families.

“Our marginalized communities, our Latinos who live in those communities, face different challenges than other groups, other communities. Our families are more than likely to receive multilingual education in the classrooms,” Marquez said. . “We also know that a lot of our community members don’t have transportation.”

Marquez is now calling on the board to put a pause on all closings, consolidations and unifications.

“What this will allow us to do is work with these families to make sure that DPS and the administration really have throughout this process and how they are going to meet the needs of this community that is going to be affected by these closures,” he said. said.

Patterson hopes that any parents and community members unhappy with the decision will speak up before it’s too late.

“It’s about the kids, not the numbers, so don’t be afraid to speak up, don’t be afraid,” Patterson said.

Registration for public comment on school closures ended Thursday, but the community can still attend the public meeting virtually or in person. For more information on this subject, you can visit: https://board.dpsk12.org/meeting/#public

The Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas (BSP) has released updated templates to guide and assist bank mergers and consolidations.

In a memorandum (Order Memorandum No. M-2022-047), BSP Deputy Governor Chuchi G. Fonacier stated that candidate banks for merger and consolidation will indeed comply with the documentary requirements set out in the “Harmonized list of requirements for simplified procedures for applications”. for bank mergers, consolidations and acquisitions” with the use of models.

“The templates are general in nature and updated to comply with the requirements of banking laws, BSP rules and regulations, the Revised Companies Code of the Philippines and the Philippine Cooperative Code, as applicable,” Fonacier said.

BSP Deputy Governor Chuchi G. Fonacier

She added, “Nevertheless, the Constituent Banks may include such provisions as may be necessary, taking into account their mutual agreements and other arrangements.”

Fonacier also pointed out that the examination of merger and consolidation requests is done on a case-by-case basis – “notwithstanding the use of said models”.

The BSP and four other financial regulators agreed last year to streamline bank merger, consolidation and acquisition processes to bolster the government’s long-standing fight against bureaucracy or excessive regulation that hampers businesses.

This initiative was initiated by the Philippine Deposit Insurance Corp., then joined by the Securities and Exchange Commission, the Cooperative Development Authority and the Philippine Competition Commission.

Regulators agreed to simplify and reduce procedures from 58 documentary requirements to just 30. They also agreed to reduce the processing time for merger and consolidation proposals to 55 working days from 160 days.

Fonacier said the updated templates amended a 2015 circular letter on said subject templates.

This was to pursue BSP’s mandate of maintaining a “stable and efficient banking and financial system that is globally competitive, dynamic and responsive to the demands of a developing economy”.

“The BSP, through mergers, consolidations and acquisitions of banks, aims to develop larger and stronger financial institutions (FIs), improve the financial soundness and improve the viability of FIs, strengthen the management and governance of FIs and to extend the reach of FIs in the market,” said Fonacier. .

According to experts, tourism in the Caribbean has recovered faster than any other destination in the world and has actually shifted into growth mode.

President of the Caribbean Hotel and Tourist Association (CHTA), Nicola Madden-Greig takes stock of the region’s performance during the Jamaica Chamber of Commerce (JCC) latest quarterly report on business and consumer confidence hlast month.

“The Caribbean has recovered faster than any other destination in the world. For the third quarter, we were up 3% on the 2019 figures for the same period – and 2019 was what we called a banner year in tourism,” Greig told the meeting.

The third quarter under review runs from July to September.

While total international arrivals for the third quarter were still down 39%, the Americas down 24%; the United States (US) down 31%; the Middle East and Africa was down 19% and Asia-Pacific was down 72% – the Caribbean was up 3%,” Madden-Greig pointed out.

Projections for the last quarter of 2022 also look pretty good, she said.

“For the fourth quarter projections on the books, we’re making pretty good progress. It looks like we’ll be up 15% in the Caribbean in 2019. So we’ve moved from recovery to growth and that’s really, really important” , said Madden-Greig, who is also director of the JCC.

Some, however, questioned whether the region could sustain the current rate of growth, she said.

“The answer we will give is definitely yes,” she said, noting that the Caribbean is well positioned to continue on its growth path and overtake other regions.

“A lot of that growth is being driven by the US market, yes. But we still got Canada, UK [and] Latin America – which has not fully recovered,” she said.

She continued, “We anticipate that as a region, the Caribbean and Jamaica, will be able to retain business that we have taken out of the US market.”

The addition of new air travel options has supported international arrivals, but regional travel still lags behind, she said.

“We have adequate air travel throughout the region from major markets, but the Caribbean region itself, in terms of interregional travel, lags behind our international arrivals,” she said.

There is, however, “a lot of pressure now to try to conduct a regional airlift”, she said.

The meetings, conventions and business travel segment should also provide a boost for the first quarter of 2023, although this segment currently lags leisure arrivals, she said.

“We also see there is potential for growth…we expect in the first quarter and going forward into 2023 we will see a significant increase in this segment and that will also drive the growth that we expect in the Caribbean,” said the CHTA President said.

Additionally, while the cruise segment has not fully recovered, the industry will begin to see “a slight uptick.”

“There are still challenges, there have been consolidations in terms of the number of calls, but we expect that in general the number of actual passengers will remain the same even if the number of ship calls may be reduced. “, Madden-Greig said. said.

She said some cruise lines have retired some ships and are working with larger ships.

“So instead of a call with 1500 or 2000, you [now] have bigger calls,” she explained.

It is hoped that these larger appeals will provide a boost to other niches such as transportation, craft vendors and other small and medium tourism dependent entities.

The shared economy or accommodation segment is also growing.

“We are seeing that villas, apartments and those segments in terms of the accommodation industry are also continuing to grow,” she said, adding that overall tourism in the Caribbean and Jamaica has rebounded. quite significantly.

Valley News – Hassan touts bipartisanship in Senate re-election https://tromsosjakklubb.com/valley-news-hassan-touts-bipartisanship-in-senate-re-election/ Sun, 30 Oct 2022 03:00:26 +0000 https://tromsosjakklubb.com/valley-news-hassan-touts-bipartisanship-in-senate-re-election/ WEST LEBANON — When Maggie Hassan was governor, she liked to tell people that “nobody does democracy like we do in New Hampshire,” underscoring the willingness of Granite State lawmakers on opposing sides to work together to solve problems.

WEST LEBANON — When Maggie Hassan was governor, she liked to tell people that “nobody does democracy like we do in New Hampshire,” underscoring the willingness of Granite State lawmakers on opposing sides to work together to solve problems.

As a young U.S. state senator seeking a second term, Hassan again touts her cross-cutting credentials to an era of hyperpartisanship among lawmakers and the paralysis it causes in Washington.

“There is common ground between Democrats and Republicans, and that’s because there is common ground among Americans,” she said, striking a note of hope. “We need to continue to work intentionally to find that common ground to ignore polarization and partisanship wherever we can.”

According to Hassan, bipartisanship is not a dirty hyphen.

“I am proud to have been named the most bipartisan senator by the Lugar Center,” Hassan said during a meeting with Valley News staff, referring to his No. 1 ranking at the top of the group’s “Bipartisan Index” measuring which senators are most willing to collaborate with members of the other party. “I even found common ground with (Republican Senator from Kentucky) Rand Paul on issues of fiscal responsibility.”

Hassan, who boasts of securing a Republican co-sponsor for all 48 bills introduced last year and shows a comfort with the details of a wide range of laws, often prefaces his answers to questions with a desire to “stepping back” to tick off one’s accomplishments.

For example, when asked how she would tackle the issue of health care costs, Hassan – a former hospital lawyer and member of the Senate Committee on Health, Education, Labor and pensions – proudly points to ‘no surprise medical bill’ legislation. she elaborated with conservative Republican U.S. Senator from Louisiana Bill Cassidy who protects patients from being forced to pay fees such as out-of-network costs for emergency services and other treatments.

Hassan said she also advocated for the Affordable Medicines Act, which proposed to give Medicare the power to negotiate prescription drug prices with pharmaceutical companies. Bargaining power was finally passed in August as part of the Inflation Reduction Act.

This new power “will save hundreds of billions of dollars over the years, reduce the deficit and shore up Medicare finances,” she said.

But revealing her sometimes pro-industry leanings, Hassan, who was assistant general counsel at Brigham and Women’s Hospital in Massachusetts before entering politics, defended hospital consolidations as a good countermeasure against insurance companies because they offer hospital chains a “ladder” to better negotiate with insurers and have led to “volume-driven efficiencies”.

(She acknowledged, however, that “antitrust experts” argue consolidation “has reduced competition among hospitals and led to high prices.”)

As for what to do next to control spiraling medical costs, Hassan suggested that legislation to make telehealth more widely available in addition to “reimbursing providers for the telehealth services they provide” are “some initial thoughts.” “.

In New Hampshire, where Dartmouth Health is the largest private employer in the state, the most intractable economic issues of labor shortages, housing shortages, affordability and cost of living are all inextricably linked, explained Hassan.

She stressed the critical need to increase the health workforce by making training accessible to attract more people into the profession, especially for nurses and drug addicts. She said hospitals are facing nursing shortages because they compete with higher-paying travel nursing agencies.

“It has become a big, big problem, especially during the pandemic. It’s hard to blame the nurses who do the very hard work of working on the front line to earn a lot more money,” Hassan said.

“There are a number of senators who are trying to look at what’s driving him and trying to come up with a solution,” Hassan said, acknowledging that she didn’t “have a specific one yet” but eventually indicated. funding to train health care. workers.

One possible solution, she suggested, would be to reduce the time it would take for a healthcare worker to get their student loans forgiven to five years from 10 years.

As part of the Cut Inflation Act, those enrolled in Medicare Part D will have an insulin co-pay capped at $35 per month starting in January. Hassan called it a “big step forward” in controlling medical costs, but said it does not go far enough and should be extended to the 37 million people with diabetes.

A bill to expand the $35 monthly cap was introduced by Jeanne Shaheen, New Hampshire’s other Democratic senator, but was blocked by Republicans.

“We will keep pushing on this,” Hassan promised. “Prescription drug costs are a huge part of the puzzle right now.”

Hassan predicted that the CHIPS and Science Act – a bill to increase research and manufacturing of semiconductors in the United States that she introduced with John Thune, RS.D., which was recently signed into law by President Joe Biden — will pump money into the regional economy, particularly by boosting institutions like Dartmouth College, and in turn attracting young workers to New Hampshire’s tech sector.

An influx of workers for manufacturing jobs, Hassan acknowledged, would quickly come up against the area’s housing shortage and high cost of living that is holding back the Upper Valley’s economy. To that end, Hassan said, his office received help from Lebanon’s Upper Valley Business Alliance to draft a bill to increase the availability of housing for the workforce.

The bill would provide federal funding mechanisms to states through grants and matching fund programs to develop affordable housing, cited as one of the main obstacles to attracting workers.

“Among the things that people tell me are most important to them are the cost of housing, the cost of childcare and the cost of energy,” Hassan said, explaining that it’s why she supports the suspension of the national gas tax and the provisions that give people a tax. credits for improving the energy efficiency of their home.

Hassan noted that she also supported the expansion of the refundable child tax credit that was part of the government’s package of COVID-19 relief programs, but failed to secure an extension in the upper house.

“There weren’t enough votes in the Senate for that,” she said. “Republicans blocked it consistently. And there are a few members of the Democratic caucus who were not supportive.

Indeed, Hassan called the refundable child tax credit a “really important step that I support and one of the reasons” she is running for re-election.

On abortion, Hassan would not detail the “specifics” she would like to see in national legislation to protect a woman’s right to abortion, but regardless, she sees greater threat that must be stopped.

The urgency “is to prevent a national ban on abortion. It’s the No. 1 job here now,” Hassan said.

Stockholm, Sweden, Oct. 27, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — A new report, with data from a multi-year independent study, reveals the latest developments in Europe’s post-pandemic food delivery industry. The results suggest that restaurants, food delivery platforms and grocery delivery services should stay focused on improving customer experience to capitalize on the gradual growth of the European market.

“2022 Food Delivery Trends”, a new white paper produced by Domestic, the global market leader in the mobile living industry, presents the latest market research on food delivery before, during and after the peak of the Covid-19 pandemic. Drawing on data from an independent study by Stockholm agency Food & Friends, the report focuses on data collected in 2021 and 2022 from more than 1,000 local Swedes on their eating habits and attitudes, both inside and outside the house.

Key takeaways from the white paper:

Unexpected market shifts challenge profitability in the food and grocery delivery industry

The pandemic, which has seen a dramatic increase in the number of food delivery services and businesses, has dramatically changed food and grocery delivery trends as well as consumer habits. Yet as parts of Europe have begun to ‘reopen’, with sweeping indoor dining restrictions being lifted, the report demonstrates an overall decline in consumer demand which has impacted the rate of growth of the market.

  • The total number of respondents who ordered food from home increased from 62% in 2021 to 56% in 2022.
  • Among those who ordered food delivered to their homes at least once a month, they fell from 37% in May 2021 to 29% in May 2022.

Other factors likely to impact this decline include the general struggle of companies to find profitable business models, layoffs and staff shortages (a global concern across all industries), dwindling equity financing -risk available as well as several mergers, consolidations and new partnerships – creating unstable market conditions. – as well as new legislation affecting gig-workers.

Potential market growth remains promising, especially with Millennials and Gen Z

Despite a series of economic challenges and lifestyle changes in the post-pandemic landscape, the study suggests that the food delivery market will continue to rise with an average forecast growth rate of 5.1% by 2023 to 2027.

Other report findings that support this trend include:

  • Food delivery increased from 2021 to 2022 among 15-34 year olds. demographic, while those 35 and over order less.

Changing consumer expectations put pressure on food and grocery delivery services

Data from the report also reveals that consumers have higher overall expectations of restaurants and food delivery platforms than before the pandemic. The overall decline in consumer demand for delivery is forcing restaurants to improve customer service for delivery orders in order to regain profitability.

  • Hot food delivered cold is the top concern for all age groups with 44% of 15-24 year olds. respondents and 40% of 25-34 year olds. respondents citing this as a particular complaint.
  • 30% of survey respondents would order more often if the food hadn’t been shaken or looked nice.

Based on the study results, today’s largest food delivery customers (15-34 years old) are also the ones who complain the most about the way their food is delivered. These issues therefore need to be addressed strategically.

“The pandemic has significantly changed our access to restaurant-quality food and groceries,” comments Eva Karlsson, Acting Head of Other Global Verticals at Dometic. “This study highlights that in this current post-pandemic landscape, with the return of indoor dining, there is very little room for dissatisfied customers.”

To help restaurateurs, ghost kitchens and last-mile delivery platforms better meet these new expectations, Dometic has developed a sophisticated temperature-controlled delivery solution. DeliBox is a delivery box that has been designed to preserve the quality and temperature of food or other perishables seamlessly throughout the delivery process. It guarantees a better customer experience and offers these companies an opportunity to build trust and brand loyalty. DeliBox aims to secure the bridge from restaurant to table without compromising food quality. Read more here.

“We believe that insights into changing consumer demands are invaluable to all players in this competitive food delivery market,” Karlsson continues. “With the data and market analysis in this white paper, restaurants and online food delivery platforms should feel better equipped to invest in and improve the overall delivery experience for customers.”

Global Veterinary Telemedicine Platform Market Dynamics:

Telemedicine is an innovation that allows a veterinarian to digitize x-ray, ultrasound and infinitesimal images and fax or web them to a veterinary expert for translation offering assistance without leaving their veterinary dispensary/clinic. Veterinary cardiologists, radiologists, dental specialists, ophthalmologists, dermatologists, specialists and in-house medication experts are currently available via telemedicine. While teleelectrocardiography has been around since the 1980s, teleultrasound, teleradiology, and telecytology all have the hallmarks of being the most practiced and feasible types of veterinary telemedicine.

The growing selection of these administrative cadres can be attributed to the ever-growing emphasis on veterinary telemedicine alongside disease identification. The occurrence of zoonotic and persistent diseases in animals and the growing selection of IoT and AI by animal caretakers are some of the significant market drivers.

Factors such as large expense of support and execution and lack of foundations created in establishing premises are reducing the reception of veterinary telemedicine, thus hampering the development of the market.

High competition and low proportion of benefits are invoked to challenge the development of the target market.
