first_img XLMedia to sell mobile business to PLYmedia Israel Marketing & affiliates Tags: Mobile Digital marketing services provider XLMedia has agreed a deal to sell its Webpals Mobile subsidiary to PLYmedia Israel as part of a strategy to switch focus to its higher-margin publishing activities. Email Address Digital marketing services provider XLMedia has agreed a deal to sell its Webpals Mobile subsidiary to PLYmedia Israel as part of a strategy to switch focus to its higher-margin publishing activities.Terms of the deal were not fully disclosed, but XLMedia has confirmed that the Webpals mobile apps marketing arm will repay $1.9m (£1.6m/€1.7m) of inter-company balances to the group upon completion of the transaction.XLMedia also noted that a final settlement will be made based on the assets and liabilities of Webpals as at completion, following the preparation of completion accounts. XLMedia added that it expects this to be immaterial.In 2018, Webpals did not contribute anything to group earnings before interest, tax, depreciation and amortisation, while the net value of assets on the XLMedia consolidated balance sheet is nil following impairment charge recorded in 2018.“The sale of Webpals marks an important step for our business as we focus our attention on our core publishing activities,” XLMedia chief executive Ory Weihs said.“We remain committed to growing our gambling and personal finance publishing networks, while continuing with complementary media activities, which we believe ideally places the group to deliver sustainable and high margin growth.”XLMedia plans to use net proceeds from the sale to support its ongoing strategy of developing its publishing assets. This wider initiative will include a discontinuation of certain other media activities in order to focus its efforts on higher-margin publishing activities.PLYmedia Israel, the new owner of Webpals, is a business that is active in both the ad-tech and online marketing industries.center_img Topics: Marketing & affiliates Strategy 9th August 2019 | By contenteditor Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitterlast_img read more

Capitalism, environmental racism and injustice

first_imgExxonMobil in Baytown, Texas.More than just torrential rains and flooding from Hurricane Harvey have put Houston in the spotlight. The fourth-largest city in the U.S., Houston has neighboring areas that contain more than a dozen oil refineries. In Baytown, 25 miles away, ExxonMobil operates the country’s second-largest refinery.Ninety miles east of Houston, in Port Arthur, Texas, is the Saudi Arabian-owned Motiva Enterprise refinery, the largest such facility in the U.S. ExxonMobil operates another refinery there.What these oil refineries have in common is that they spew millions of pounds of toxic pollutants and fumes into the air, in violation of the Clean Air Act and endangering the surrounding communities. ExxonMobil has flagrantly violated permits to expand its oil processing and refinery operations.Port Arthur is home to the largest population of disadvantaged and marginalized people living in fence-line communities surrounded by refineries. Disproportionate numbers of these people suffer under a daily bombardment of toxic fumes. They do not have the resources to leave or evacuate.Communities adjacent to these petrochemical plants have one thing in common: They are occupied by predominantly poor, marginalized, Black and Latinx residents who are daily exposed to airborne toxic emissions. These carcinogens cause serious health problems, including an increased mortality risk from heart disease and cancer, as well as respiratory and neurological illnesses and birth defects.Alleen Brown’s article in the Aug. 31 Intercept, entitled, “Harvey Victims Face Toxic Pollution as Hurricane Recovery Begins,” tells of a study last October by the Union of Concerned Scientists and Texas Environmental Justice Advocacy Services. It showed vast health disparities between the Black and Brown lower-income communities of Harrisburg-Manchester and Galena Park, which sit near Houston’s petrochemical industry, and the two mainly white communities of Bellaire and White Oaks/Eldridge further away.The study concluded that the fence-line communities “faced cancer risks and a respiratory hazard index that were at least 24 percent higher risk than the wealthier communities,” showing the greater environmental harm done to people of color.During Hurricane Harvey, explosions of chemical plants emitted black smoke into the air produced by highly volatile chemicals. Over 1 million pounds of toxic emissions above legal limits spewed from industrial facilities in Texas following Harvey. (Reuters, Sept. 11).‘Harvey: a catastrophe waiting to happen’Dr. Robert Bullard, distinguished professor at Texas Southern University in Houston, is known as the “father of the environmental justice movement.” He told Democracy Now! on Aug. 29 that “unrestrained capitalism made Harvey a catastrophe waiting to happen.” He stressed that throughout the U.S., zip codes and institutional racism against oppressed communities are the best predictors of health and well-being. Environmental vulnerability has a historical color.“All communities are not created equal,” stated Dr. Bullard. Houston’s oppressed communities “historically have borne the burden for environmental pollution” and the impact of other man-made disasters. It is the only city without zoning, but oppressed communities are “unofficially zoned as compatible with pollution.”The placement of these large industries often dramatically lowers the property value of homes in these communities. Being unable to sell their homes at a value high enough to purchase property elsewhere often prevents residents from relocating.Bullard explains that due to redlining practices, Black and Latinx people can’t get loans or insurance in fence-lined communities. Redlining occurs when banks, corporations and the government racially profile certain communities, and then banks discourage investment there by identifying certain areas as high-risk. So redlining geographical areas results in disinvestment and discrimination occurs despite laws against it.In Louisiana, Baton Rouge and Norco are fence-line communities of Shell Oil. Hurricane Katrina in 2005 severely affected lower-income Black residents who lived in New Orleans’ neglected Ninth Ward. The government abandoned residents for days. Nearly 2,000 people died. Some residents were sent to Houston, where they were displaced again due to Hurricane Harvey. Studies show that Black people are less likely to return to their cities after displacement.Institutional racism hurts Bronx residentsThe Bronx in New York City is among the poorest and most oppressed counties in the U.S. More than one-fourth of its Black and Latinx residents live below the poverty line. For five decades, the Bronx has been denied equal access to resources due to institutional racist policies and practices, including redlining.Bronx residents suffer serious health conditions caused by disproportionately polluted environments. Government funding is lacking, and so is political support for environmental improvement and sustainability. Officials don’t even acknowledge the issues.Massive expressways built straight through the community have caused the forced relocation of hundreds of thousands of low-income people and increased auto and truck emissions. An overabundance of factories, waste treatment plants, municipal landfills and incinerators developed, to the detriment of residents’ lives and futures. Pollution by air, water and waste severely damage Bronx residents’ health; extremely high rates of asthma prevail.As Houston recovers from Hurricane Harvey, the question arises of whose community will be restored and rebuilt. In the rebuilding projects, environmental and economic justice must be built in, free of inequity. Will oppressed communities still be neglected and invisible, while oil corporations and banks capitalize on their suffering and destruction? Will they receive the protection of rebuilt infrastructure?The Environmental Protection Agency has dragged its feet for years on complaints and civil rights lawsuits, and has given waivers to oil companies. ExxonMobil, for instance, greatly influences government policies.In March, the Trump administration declared it would roll back pollution protection. It proposed cutting back funding and reducing EPA staff, eliminating money for environmental justice programs and deregulating protections against toxic pollution.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Blogger Abdeljalil Al-Singace mistreated in detention, concern over condition

first_img RSF_en June 15, 2020 Find out more Coronavirus “information heroes” – journalism that saves lives Help by sharing this information October 7, 2010 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Blogger Abdeljalil Al-Singace mistreated in detention, concern over condition Organisation German spyware company FinFisher searched by public prosecutors March 17, 2021 Find out more News BahrainMiddle East – North Africa to go furthercenter_img October 14, 2020 Find out more Reporters Without Borders is very worried about the violence to which blogger Abdeljalil Al-Singace has been subjected since his arrest on 4 September and which has caused him partial loss of hearing. The mistreatment and torture of jailed human rights activists seems to be becoming more frequent in the run-up to parliamentary elections scheduled for 23 October.The press freedom organisation calls for the immediate release of Al-Singace and the human rights activists who have been unjustly detained in Bahrain. The international community has a duty to put pressure on the country’s authorities to respect the fundamental rights enshrined in the international conventions that Bahrain has signed and ratified.According to the information obtained by Reporters Without Borders, Al-Singace has a perforated ear-drum as a result of a blow to the head he received following his arrest and is now partially deaf. He is being deprived of the walking-stick and wheel-chair he normally uses and is being denied access to the medical care he needs for various chronic ailments. He has been in solitary confinement ever since he was taken to a National Security detention centre.Al-Singace was previously arrested for an alleged campaign to destabilise the government in 2009, when he was already using his blog (http://alsingace.katib.org) to report cases of discrimination against Shiite citizens as well as the deplorable state of press freedom and other civil liberties.An anti-terrorism law that Bahrain adopted in 2006 is being used to arrest many human rights activists and journalists. A total of 23 people, many of them Shiites, are currently being held under this law.The cyber-dissident Ali Abdulemam was also arrested on 4 September, while Nabeel Rajab, the head of the Bahrain Centre for Human Rights (a Reporters Without Borders partner organisation), is the target of a smear campaign in the newspapers, which are accusing him of belonging to a terrorist organisaion.Rajab and Abd Al-Hadi Al-Khawaja, who works for the organisation Frontline, have been banned from leaving the country and Rajab was briefly arrested when he tried to travel to Saudi Arabia on 26 September.Access to more than 100 news, political, religious and free speech websites including the Arabic Network for Human Rights Information and Barhainonline.org is now either partially or totally blocked inside Bahrain, as is access to certain Facebook, Wikipedia, Google Earth and YouTube pages.Other signs of the Bahraini authorities taking a generally tougher line since May include a (temporary) ban on Al Jazeera by the ministry of culture and information and a ban on a BlackBerry application.

School redesign plans up for approval

first_img Facebook Pinterest WhatsApp Facebook By Odessa American – April 19, 2021 School redesign plans up for approval The Ector County ISD Board of Trustees will consider approving School Action Fund Redesign plans for Noel and Lyndon B. Johnson elementary schools and Wilson and Young Middle School when they meet at 6 p.m. Tuesday.The gathering will be held in the first floor board room of the administration building, 802 N. Sam Houston Ave. COVID-19 protocols will be in place.Noel, LBJ and Wilson & Young received School Action Fund Planning Grants during the 2020-2021 school year.Approving these plans will allow these campuses to apply for the School Action Fund Continuation Grants to provide additional funding to implement their plans during the 2021-2022 school year and beyond, supplemental agenda material said.Leaders involved included a broad spectrum of people — district leaders, school leaders, teachers, parents, students and community representatives — in developing plans for all three campuses. Stakeholders expressed their desire for a growth mindset among students and teachers; opportunities for parents to engage with the school; and strong relationships between teachers and parents, the board workshop recap from April 13 said.Personalized instruction, with a focus on Blended Learning is a key component of this work. Blended Learning is defined as a student having some control, in some manner, over his or her own learning, the recap said. The plans also provide for social-emotional support of the whole child — through mental health supports and after-school enrichment opportunities.Special recognitions include Tech Leadership Academy Recognition; Best Communities for Music Education Designation; introduction of UIL state qualifiers; and recognition of the Broncho Spirit and MOJO Spirit Scholarship recipients.There also will be a presentation by the Communications Department and an executive session for contract renewals.
