The US midterm elections and the Brazilian presidential election have shown, once again, how commonplace misinformation and disinformation are in democratic elections.

Several human rights groups and researchers say social media platforms have struggled to follow through on agreements they signed with Brazil’s Superior Electoral Court (TSE) in February 2022, in which they promised to fight against content that could undermine the democratic process.

“On election day, and as the vote count was underway in the following days, posts and videos containing misinformation and allegations of voter fraud began circulating on social media. [But] when it comes to voter fraud, the platforms have very different policies, and even the strongest ones are not always enforced [and] tech platforms have a reputation for bending their rules for powerful actors and allowing politicians to get away with speech that violates their policies,” said Deborah Brown, senior digital rights researcher at Human Rights Watch, and Maria Laura Canineu, in an article on October 28, 2022.

Social media platforms let us down

Meta claimed to have acted to eliminate misinformation on Facebook. However, this claim has come under scrutiny and Global Witness, an international NGO, has investigated Facebook’s work.

Speaking about Global Witness’ findings at London’s DTX on October 13, 2022, Pulitzer-appointed investigative journalist Carole Cadwalladr said: “[Global Witness] created multiple accounts and created five types of ads that contain false information about the Brazilian election and five others that delegitimize many aspects of the election itself. They weren’t based in Brazil, they didn’t use a VPN, and every ad they created deliberately violated all Meta policies. All advertisements have been accepted by Meta and authorized to be published on Facebook.

After Cadwalladr broke the Cambridge Analytica scandal in 2018, Facebook introduced the ad library, which it said “provides some transparency but is very insufficient. Even today, our elections are not secure. Facebook and other social media platforms have let us down and are a threat surface for bad actors to exploit at will.

Some organizations have developed various approaches, methods and frameworks to tackle the problem of misinformation. These proposals take advantage of emerging technologies (including AI, data analytics and blockchain) to deliver a more reliable internet. Infosecurity examines three of the most important approaches.

The path of civil society: the beam of the Institute for Strategic Dialogue and CASM

On November 14, 2022, the think tank Institute for Strategic Dialogue (ISD) and the start-up CASM Technology, official launch of Beama set of multilingual, cross-platform tools dedicated to tracking, exposing and confronting disinformation and other forms of online manipulation and deception.

According to its London-based developers, Beam is made up of two technical layers – described in detail in a white paper authored by Dr Francesca Arcostanzo and Melanie Smith, of ISD, and Carl Miller, research director at Demos and co-founder from CASM Technology.

The underlying layer of Beam is a machine learning and data analysis tool developed over the past decade by CASM, called Method52. This tool is made up of around 100 components, responsible for a multitude of tasks, ranging from collecting data from Facebook, Reddit, Telegram, Twitter, YouTube, PeerTube, 4Chan, Discord, Mastodon, news sources mainstream media and a large number of stand-alone websites, to text analysis using natural language processing (NLP).

The core layer of Beam is made up of the six Beam programs. Five of them are used to analyze data collected and selected by Method52 (Beam Collect, Beam Messages, Beam Hate Speech, Beam Accounts, Beam Network and Communities) and one, Beam Window, produces Beam outputs, including dashboards, data visualizations, reports and alerts, which are used to power responses to information threats.

When ISD and CASM started working on a tool to fight disinformation in 2015, they wanted to develop a platform that was transparent and independent of any online service provider, worked on as many data sources, issues and languages ​​as possible – including sub-languages ​​served – and adapt to new technologies and new methods of online manipulation.

Development of the Beam architecture began in 2018. In 2021, they were among three winners of the US-Paris Tech Challenge, a competition on innovative responses to disinformation. They used the $83,000 funding prize to complete the development of the Beam toolset.

While Beam’s core team includes experts in different fields, data journalists, open source intelligence practitioners, and Beam architects and developers, they also wanted Beam to be used by civil society organizations and responses. powerful beyond platform deletions or journalistic reports.

Concretely, Beam is deployed in two different ways:

  • Continuous monitoring, where online platforms, certain forms of language, account listings, channels and spaces are monitored over time to identify emerging information threats or changes in salience, targeting or the influence of those whose existence is already known
  • Deeper investigation, where specific illicit influence campaigns are subject to decompilation and scrutiny to identify their targets, effects, methods, and possible success

Beam has been used unofficially during several events, including the US presidential election in 2020 and the midterm elections of 2022 and the French presidential election in 2022. Outside of elections, Beam has also been used during the Syrian conflict , the COP26 and COP27 climate conferences, and to analyze pro-Kremlin disinformation campaigns since the invasion of Ukraine in February 2022.

The Japanese Way: The Approval Layer of Fujitsu and Keio University

Japanese conglomerate Fujitsu and Keio University’s Trusted Internet Architecture Lab (TIAL) released a white paper on October 13, 2022, showcasing their “Trusted Internet Architecture”, an architecture “that overlays a layer on the Internet with a mechanism for improve the credibility of the data.”

This “approval layer” would scour the Internet for authoritative data sources (people, sensors, and other sources of information about a given fact).

Each data added by an entity is subject to a digital signature to indicate that the source confirms that it is true. Third parties can verify it, giving it a higher level of credibility.

The “Trusted Internet” model proposes “an approval graph with a data structure expressing the link between additional data-related information,” the white paper reads.

This endorsement graph would be transparently accessible to the user so that they can understand the context of a story and judge the credibility of each source’s data. Browser extensions that allow users to filter approval graph information to suit their needs are suggested as a possible improvement.

The white paper details a scenario in which a social media user posts an image of what appears to be large amounts of dirty water flowing over a dam spillway and into a river with an opinion that “he might be a flood”. The scenario assumes people see this and conclude there’s a flood – causing anxiety among residents, possible panic buying or even an inappropriate response from emergency services.

Users viewing a message about a possible flood could request access to different data about this potential flood, which the trust layer would publish.

“This should help prevent the use of unreliable data and the spread of misinformation and fake news,” reads the white paper.

TIAL said it is developing protocols on which the approval graph will be based and the reputation mechanism that will give sources a certain level of credibility. They will also work to test their model on other use cases.

The Blockchain method: ANSAcheck of the Agenzia Nazionale Stampa Associata

In 2020, Italian news agency Agenzia Nazionale Stampa Associata (ANSA) started a collaboration with consultancy EY to develop ANSAcheck, a news tracking system based on EY OpsChain traceability. This technology makes it possible to record public transactions on the Ethereum blockchain.

With ANSAcheck, readers can verify the origin of news that appears on ANSA platforms or other approved publishers or that is distributed to other editorial publications or third parties such as social media networks or other platforms. .

Each publisher on the platform maintains a private JavaScript library that contains their original news, which is connected to EY’s notarization system. This system is responsible for publishing the entry on the public Ethereum blockchain and has a backend system that allows publishers to join the blockchain solution.

The user interface features a front-end dashboard for monitoring news delivery.

EY manages transactions for publication on Ethereum using a smart contract, a transaction protocol recorded on a blockchain that is designed to automatically execute predefined actions according to the terms of the agreement – here the news comes from an approved publisher with its contextual details (date and place of report, etc.).

The smart contract mitigates the risk of Ether price volatility by postponing the processing of new stories if the current cost of Ether, the currency used on the Ethereum blockchain, is too high. EY also reduces transaction costs by bundling multiple stories into a single transaction.

EY has designed a three-step process to connect ANSA with publishers in its ecosystem. In the first two stages, ANSA publishes and authorizes the story by publishing it on the Ethereum blockchain. In the third step, other publishers who wish to republish the story with the ANSAcheck verification system will register to use the platform. Publishers will then trigger a transaction.

Since late 2020, ANSA has been working with other publishers, starting with Italy, where fake news spread rapidly at the start of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Giuseppe Perone, EMEA blockchain manager at EY Italy, shared his experience with ANSA during a webinar hosted by the Hyperledger Foundation on April 4, 2022.

Developments for future digital identity standards

In addition to these approaches, several governing bodies are also working on trusted digital identity systems to mitigate the spread of disinformation, including the European Union and its European Digital Identity Architecture and Framework, and the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) and its verifiable credentials. Data Model, both introduced in Spring 2022.

Some hope that these digital identity standards, coupled with an effective information verification system, could help build a more trusted Internet in the future.

Legendary Italian footballer Andrea Pirlo stars in a new Qatar Tourism global campaign titled “No Football. No worries.” The iconic sportsman, who played for the Italian national team, will show all that Qatar has to offer and where to experience the best of the Middle East.

In a series of humorous adverts, viewers see Pirlo experience a variety of adventures in Qatar, from sandboarding the desert dunes of the Inland Sea and soaking up the culture at the Museum of Islamic Art to kitesurfing in the country’s new resort town, Fuwairit Kite Beach.


Andrea Pirlo said: “I really enjoyed exploring Qatar. It’s a beautiful country with beautiful people and it has so much to offer. Whether you’re a sports fan or not, you can enjoy Qatar and experience adventure, culture and exciting activities – I’ve been there many times before and can’t wait to go back.”

Qatar Tourism’s Chief Operating Officer, Berthold Trenkel, said: “Qatar offers the best of the Middle East in one safe and accessible place, as well as a warm welcome for visitors from all over the world. We offer our Qatari hospitality to every visitor who comes to Qatar, where they can experience the trip of a lifetime. We hope our latest playful campaign will reveal the variety of adventures on offer, catering to a wide range of tastes and budgets.


“No football. No worries.” advertisements are launched on global broadcasters. They will be activated in 17 countries on local television channels, social media platforms such as Facebook, Instagram and Snapchat, and online platforms such as YouTube and the Google Display Network.

The campaign is part of Qatar Tourism’s new global brand platform, “Feel More in Qatar”, which focuses on family-friendly activities and experiences offered in the destination.

The central campaign “Feel More in Qatar” is also launched in December. It sees three engaging animated characters introduce a family to the breadth of emotional experiences they will have in Qatar, as well as the country’s renowned hospitality and warm welcome. The characters – Shaheen the falcon, Maha the Arabian oryx and Lulu the hawksbill turtle, represent iconic Qatari wildlife and guide the family to discover the soul of Qatar; a destination that combines cosmopolitan modernity and breathtaking landscapes with Arab tradition and culture.

Pirlo is currently the manager of Turkish Süper Lig club Fatih Karagümrük. During his years of active football, he played for Inter and AC Milan, Juventus, New York City FC and their Italian national team. Pirlo featured in every game of Italy’s 2006 FIFA World Cup™ winning run, scoring the opening goal in the final penalty shoot-out that helped his side claim victory over France.

Qatar Tourism has an ambitious long-term strategy to increase the number of inbound visitors to over six million per year by 2030. The destination will achieve this by boosting the entire tourism value chain, increasing demand for local and international visitors, attracting foreign investment and creating a multiplier effect throughout the national economy.

If only West Ham’s shirt had a collar, Gianluca Scamacca might have worn his own. That’s the impression you get listening to the £35.5m striker explain why he wants to look more like Eric Cantona in his first interview since switching to English football.

As with every new Premier League import, one has to wonder who he grew up admiring with. Cantona is his surprise pick, given that the enigmatic Frenchman quit playing football even before Scamacca was born on New Year’s Day 1999.

Still, the 23-year-old Italian was searching YouTube for clips of Cantona, including his old Nike commercials. He was impressed. How he was always so cool and confident. Intrepid and fearsome. Arrogant in a good way with that popped collar and puffy chest.

Gianluca Scamacca moved to West Ham from Sassuolo for £35.5m this summer

He revealed that Manchester United legend Eric Cantona was his idol growing up

It is also the aura that Scamacca wants to bring to the Premier League.

“Years ago they were doing commercials with Cantona,” he says, sitting on a sofa in the club’s training ground. “I watched them and saw videos from when he was playing for Manchester United. He was an influence and very imposing, also a little arrogant in his approach.

“I always try to work in this direction for myself. I have to have that confidence. I am at 70% of my potential. In a few months, I’ll get there or I’ll be on my way.

Scamacca has scored six goals this season, the last two assisted by Lucas Paqueta, West Ham’s other £51million summer signing. “I get on well with Paqueta. But I know I can do better. That’s why I want to work on my confidence, my intensity and my presence on the pitch.

“Here in the Premier League you have to be bigger. I’m not worried about comparisons (with Erling Haaland or Harry Kane). It’s up to others to do it. It doesn’t affect me. My main concern is to give the best of what I can do.

There is an Italian translator seated next to Scamacca, although he tries to conduct most of this interview in English. There’s no mention of seagulls and trawlers, but he has a surprisingly good command of the language, considering he only moved to London at the end of July.

Cockney slang is fine too. “Look at you, me old China,” was one of the first phrases he learned after arriving. Smiling, he continues: “It’s decidedly different! England is good. I like it and have fun at West Ham. They support new players.

‘It’s very different. In Italy, it’s tactical. Here it’s fast and physical. It’s a different kind of game. But it’s going to get better. When my agent told me West Ham were interested, I said: “Try to do it quickly.” I was happy.’

He was intrigued by the ‘projecto’ sold to him by manager David Moyes and spoke to former West Ham players in Italy, including Pedro Obiang. The word “brividi” – “goosebumps” – came up during the fanbase discussion.

Scamacca has also sought the advice of Italy coach Roberto Mancini. “He said it was a great opportunity to grow. He said, “When it’s hard, you can grow.”

Scamacca spoke to ex-Man City boss Roberto Mancini before joining the Premier League

Patience is needed with new Premier League players, but Scamacca rejects the mentioned schedule. ‘A few years? No. Some months. He (Mancini) said work hard and you will see results.

‘It’s my job. This is my passion. I live for it. It’s a dream for me. I don’t worry about the pressure. I don’t care because I’m far from home. No. I only live for football. It’s enough for me.

“I regained confidence in my journey. I had a lot of difficulties in the past. I had to work on myself, on my mind. It made me more confident. Everyone lives their footballing experience. If it wasn’t because I’m so passionate about football that I wouldn’t be here now.

Beneath his casual clothes, Scamacca wears a tapestry of tattoos. The words “Dios bendiga mi familia” – “God bless my family” – are under the wings of an angel on his chest. On his left hand is an elephant whose trunk runs over his middle finger. To her right is a rose and the word “HOPE” spelled across her knuckles. A portrait of a woman sits on the right side of her neck and a lion on the other. Not to mention a sleeve of tattoos running down his right arm.

They tell a story, but a story that Scamacca does not want to reveal. “I prefer to keep it to myself. A little mystery never hurts. It certainly didn’t hurt the cryptic Cantona.

Scamacca grew up in Borgata Fidene, on the northern outskirts of Rome. A Roma fan, he played street football. “We play, we play, we play. I was in love.’ Was he the best of all the guys around? “Yes,” he said, surprised at the question. ‘Why do you ask?!’

He is close to his mother, Cristiana, and his sister, Giuly, but there are complications with the other side of the Scamacca family.

Scamacca said he

Scamacca said he ‘lives for football’ and is determined to succeed in the Premier League

In May 2021, reports in Italy emerged that Scamacca’s father Emiliano broke into Roma’s training ground and destroyed cars with an iron bar. Months later, it was reported that his grandfather, Sandro, had put a knife to the throat of a bar owner in Rome.

“I find myself again having to distance myself from violent and indescribable episodes committed by people related to my last name but with whom I have formed all kinds of relationships,” Scamacca said at the time.

“I grew up with my mother and my sister and they are my family. Nobody else.’

Scamacca doesn’t like to dwell on family he doesn’t see. Instead, he prefers to praise the parent who gave him everything. “She supported me and helped me when it was a bit difficult.”

After spending time at the academies of Roma and Lazio, Scamacca signed for PSV Eindhoven, moving to the Netherlands aged 16. This raised eyebrows in his native country. Young people were not supposed to want to leave Italy to complete their football training. But Scamacca did.

“I went there because I wanted to improve,” he says. “It was the best place to learn football. I felt like I couldn’t do it in Italy.

“In Italy, it’s different. In the academies, the under 18s, the under 19s, they don’t work on the individual. They work on the team, on tactics, how to win games. But in other countries they work individually on the players.

Scamacca took advice from ex-Man United striker Ruud van Nistelrooy

Scamacca took advice from ex-Man United striker Ruud van Nistelrooy

Mark van Bommel was one of his mentors at PSV. Just like Ruud van Nistelrooy, who paid special attention to Scamacca. ‘It was really good. He told me you had to stay in the club.

Was Holland a scary prospect for a teenager who didn’t speak a word of Dutch? ‘No,’ he said. ‘Afraid of what ? Because I was alone? Nope.’

That fearlessness sums up Scamacca, who became the 50th striker signed under West Ham owners David Sullivan and David Gold. Some purchases were good. Some bad. Some worse, like the £45m squandered on Sebastien Haller.

Scamacca is determined to succeed. He plans to use Italy’s absence from the 2022 World Cup to improve, with one of his mantras being to ‘train while others sleep, study while others sleep. amuse”.

With that, our time with Scamacca is over. “Ciao,” he said as he left after an intriguing half hour with West Ham’s new striker.

Eurozone wage growth picks up, job vacancies pop up https://anteospaziocinema.com/eurozone-wage-growth-picks-up-job-vacancies-pop-up/ Wed, 09 Nov 2022 00:02:11 +0000 https://anteospaziocinema.com/eurozone-wage-growth-picks-up-job-vacancies-pop-up/ Wage growth is accelerating in six major eurozone economies, including Germany and France, according to a new wage tracking system based on real-time data from online job postings.

Wage growth is accelerating in six major eurozone economies, including Germany and France, according to a new wage tracking system based on real-time data from online job postings.

The median salary quoted in the ads was 5.2% higher at the end of October than a year earlier – compared to an annual growth of 4.2% in June and more than three times the average of 1.5% for 2019, the first year analyzed by the tracker, a collaboration between the Central Bank of Ireland and job search site Indeed.

CBI economist Reamonn Lydon and Indeed economist Pawel Adrjan pointed to “extraordinarily strong” wage growth in Germany, where October posted wages were 7.1% higher than a year earlier. Wage growth in France was 4.7% over the same period.

As workers seek to offset soaring food and energy prices, the European Central Bank is on the lookout for signs of bigger wage increases that could prolong high inflation. Eurozone inflation hit a record 10.7% last month and the central bank fears a 1970s-style “wage-price spiral” could develop if workers and businesses expect double-digit inflation.

Wage growth has been more modest in the eurozone than in the United States and the United Kingdom, where unemployment rates are lower and post-coronavirus pandemic labor shortages more acute. But the ECB expects average wage growth to pick up from 4% in 2022 to 4.8% in 2023, reflecting tight labor markets, rising minimum wages in some countries and offsetting rising wages. costs exacerbated by Russia’s war in Ukraine.

Fabio Panetta, one of the more dovish members of the ECB’s board, said last week that wage pressures had so far been contained but the central bank, which has raised interest rates interest of a record 200 basis points in its last three meetings, had to be “extremely vigilant”.

Paul Hollingsworth, chief economist for Europe at BNP Paribas, said that while there was still little evidence of a price-wage spiral, “we cannot say that the risk has passed” and the hawks of the ECB would be alert to any signs of an increase. inflation begins to influence wage and price setting. He added that a trend of rising industrial action suggested there had been “a shift in bargaining power in favor of workers”.

You see a snapshot of an interactive chart. This is probably because you are offline or JavaScript is disabled in your browser.

The tracker is more current than the latest data from Eurostat, which showed that hourly labor costs in the second quarter increased by 4.0% in the euro zone compared to the period of the previous year. . It is less comprehensive, as the proportion of ads citing compensation varies by country. But because the tracker reflects new hires, it is able to capture shifts in the labor market faster than the ECB’s negotiated wage measure – which covers collective agreements that take months to materialize.

France and Germany have raised the minimum wage several times over the past year and offered employers tax breaks for one-off payments to help staff cope with the rising cost of living . Unions have also been increasingly assertive on wages, with industrial action shutting oil refineries in France last month and IG Metall in Germany going on warning strikes as it seeks an 8% wage increase for nearly 4 million workers.

The new tracker points to wage growth of 4% in Ireland and Italy, 3.9% in Spain and 3.8% in the Netherlands – although all have inflation rates similar to or higher than those of Germany, which implies a greater drop in the standard of living. Posted wage growth in the UK, where vacancy rates are higher, has been above 6% since June.

Lydon said the data showed the biggest acceleration in wages had taken place this summer, but pressures were broadening across countries and sectors and appeared increasingly driven by inflation rather than shortages. labor. Although posted wage growth was highest in areas such as food preparation and driving, where employers struggled to recruit, it was now above 3% in more than 60% of occupational categories .

But the researchers also said there were early signs of plateauing or slowing wage growth as the economic outlook deteriorates in some eurozone countries.

Lydon said this slowdown was most visible in higher-paying sectors such as IT and finance, where employers were making a long-term investment when hiring and may be more sensitive to economic uncertainty, and in human ressources.

It’s still early days, but it’s great to see the interest from the ad community and we couldn’t be more excited about what’s to come. We will continue to learn and improve the experience over time,” he added.

One of this season’s most anticipated neighborhood Italian restaurants, Tonino, is now open on Jamaica Plain at 669A Center St. (Little Dipper’s former home).

Co-founders Luke Fetbroth (a Tres Gatos, Sarma and Giulia alum) and Claire Makley (whose background includes Hojoko and the Koji Club) live in Jamaica Plain and, along with partners David Doyle and Mari Pérez-Alers, sought to evoke the cozy neighborhood bars and restaurants just outside the center of Rome. Their space is relatively simply laid out with a bright feel; Artwork like vintage Italian advertisements hang from light wood and white walls, offsetting marble tables and dark wood floors and chairs.

Tonino serves up Sicilian-style pizzas — including a Philadelphia-inspired tomato pie based on Fetbroth’s childhood memories — and homemade pastas like cappelletti and clam chitarra, a dish that pays homage to the restaurant’s long history. dates from Naples Osteria da Tonino, on which the new Tonino based its name. There’s also an eclectic assortment of drinks, from the expected (wine) to the unexpected (sake), thanks to the aforementioned work of Makley who helped open Boston’s first sake bar, the Koji Club at the Speedway in Brighton. .)

Tonino is currently open Sunday and Monday 5-9pm and Thursday-Saturday 5-10pm, with plans to add lunch and happy hour (3-5pm) soon. You can make reservations through the website and see more photos on Instagram.

Don Bolduc has it both ways with the Senate majority on the line https://anteospaziocinema.com/don-bolduc-has-it-both-ways-with-the-senate-majority-on-the-line/ Wed, 19 Oct 2022 08:30:00 +0000 https://anteospaziocinema.com/don-bolduc-has-it-both-ways-with-the-senate-majority-on-the-line/ “I said no to that question, and I’m not backing down,” Bolduc said in an interview with Politico, when asked if he would now agree to back McConnell as leader.

“I said no to that question, and I’m not backing down,” Bolduc said in an interview with Politico, when asked if he would now agree to back McConnell as leader.

Despite his feelings for the Minority Leader, Bolduc remains willing to take McConnell’s money. The Senate Leadership Fund, the Super PAC affiliated with the Republican leader, is on track to spend $23 million on this year’s New Hampshire race. It’s a critical boost for Bolduc, who as an outside candidate has failed to raise significant funds on his own, spending just $500,000 on TV ads so far.

“I very much appreciate Senator McConnell’s support, but that’s his job,” Bolduc said. “So to me, it’s not something we should all be amazed at. We should expect his support and he should do everything in his power to help us win. »

Bolduc said he hadn’t thought about who he would like to see as the leader instead. When pressed, he said he had “people on his mind, but I’m keeping it to myself.”

Bolduc’s continued resistance to McConnell illustrates the enduring divide within a Republican party that has largely aligned itself with Trump but depends on traditional funding sources, primarily the McConnell-aligned Senate Leadership Fund. It also foreshadows the difficulty Senate Republicans could face at the peak of their program, should they regain a majority.

As the GOP entered the midterm election cycle on a wave of anti-Biden momentum, Biden’s approval ratings remain weak. But the GOP nonetheless found itself in tougher races than expected in states like New Hampshire, with incumbent Democratic senators being questioned in front of the president. The GOP now seems poised to secure a tiny majority at best, rather than ushering in a massive red wave and comfortable margins in the chamber.

But Bolduc’s stance on leadership in Washington is unlikely to hurt voters for him, as McConnell remains unpopular in both parties. Incumbent Democratic Senator Maggie Hassanthat Bolduc is tough this fall, sought to link Bolduc to McConnell, noting that the leader has launched a national abortion ban and suggested that Bolduc would support him.

Bolduc, who ran as a “pro-life” primary candidate and said he wouldn’t vote otherwise, in the general election stressed he would not support a federal abortion ban and believes that the law should be established at the state level.

It’s a “really, really close race,” Hassan said in an interview. “New Hampshire is always close.”

Even though public polls show Bolducs about 7 points behind Hassan, the Senate Leadership Fund – the race’s top spender – opted to keep its $23 million investment in place. It’s a sign that the group, which tends to make its spending decisions based on data, sees a GOP victory here as possible in the current economic and political environment. The Super PAC kept its funds in New Hampshire even as they pulled money from Arizona, another high-profile battleground where other Republican groups have rushed to bridge the SLF divide. .

“I know how Republicans feel about this race because of the amount of money Mitch McConnell is spending on this seat,” Hassan said.

The Democrat expressed optimism that anger over Republican plans to limit access to abortion would motivate his party: “When I talk to voters, there are a lot of concerns about rising costs…but I was talking to a reproductive health group. People were like, “I could vote differently this year, but body autonomy is the #1 thing because everything else depends on it.” »

Hassan sought to highlight areas where she disagreed with Biden, noting on Tuesday that she urged the White House to release more oil from its reserves to help ease the pain consumers are feeling at the gas pump. .

“I think he was a bit too slow and the administration was a bit slow to acknowledge it,” Hassan said.

But in a debate Tuesday morning, the first between Hassan and Bolduc, the senator defended Biden’s mental acumen and ability to fill the president’s office. Asked in a later interview if it would be helpful for Biden to campaign with her, Hassan smiled.

“The president is always welcome in New Hampshire,” she said.

Without any significant advertising budget, Bolduc tirelessly traveled the state holding low-cost grassroots events and town halls with voters.

Supporters emerged from an Italian restaurant midday in his hometown of Laconia on Monday, packing onto a patio in the rain to listen through an open door for remarks inside. He was accompanied by Tulsi Gabbard, the former Hawaii congresswoman and 2020 Democratic presidential candidate who has since denounced her former party.

Wearing his Letterman jacket in high school in the photo line afterwards, Bolduc hugged and hugged back from old classmates who called him “Donnie,” family friends who greeted his late father, and from new supporters who said they had driven hours for the event. That night, the campaign ran out of chairs at the North Conway Community Center, where Bolduc and Gabbard held a rally.

He also stumped Tuesday with Nikki Haley, the former South Carolina governor and United Nations ambassador.

After running to the right of most Republican primary candidates this year, casting himself as the loudest in the field, Bolduc set out to appeal to a wider swath of voters. At the start of campaign events, he says he expects there to be Republicans, independents and Democrats in the room. During their stops with Gabbard, the duo emphasized the need for opposing sides to work together to achieve common sense solutions.

Bolduc met Gabbard in New Hampshire during the 2020 election cycle, when he was running in the Republican Senate primary — a race he lost — and as she sought the Democratic nomination for president. The two were at an American Legion event in the town of Meredith, where Bolduc said he was “very impressed” with the then-Democrat.

At a steel company in Greenland on Tuesday, Bolduc said his first phone call if elected to the Senate would be to the senator. Jeanne Shaheensenior Democratic state senator.

“I think you and I can come together to do three very important things,” Bolduc told the acidies gathered in a small cafeteria room, enacting the call he would make to Shaheen. He said he would ask her for help “influencing the current administration of Democrats to reverse” its policies that caused the inflation; He would suggest they would make a concerted effort to be an example of how a state’s bipartisan senators could work together; And he would ask her for help to secure the border.

Ed Butler, chairman of the Carroll County Democratic Party, where Bolduc and Hassan campaigned earlier this week and participated in the first debate, described the county as “always purple – we’re not blue. We are not red. Biden won the county by less than 2 percentage points in 2020, although Shaheen won by double digits.

“He definitely fights,” Butler said of Bolduc. “And it’s a challenge, and Maggie will rise to meet her.”

As to whether Bolduc will now welcome the support of Trump, who refused to endorse anyone in the primary, he said he would. But he said New Hampshire voters wouldn’t have wanted anyone from outside to “meddle in their primary,” something Trump has done in other competitive Senate races this year.

“I think what our election did was show that with less than $500,000, working hard over two years and going out to every town and city, you can win against power and money.” , said Bolduc. “And my hat’s off to the granite staters for accomplishing that. It is quite significant. »

By Election Day, the Senate Leadership Fund is expected to run more than $8 million in ads on Bolduc’s behalf, more than any other advertiser in the race.

Does Netflix UK add ads?

The streaming platform’s new plan is called Basic with Ads, which will cost £4.99 per month in the UK and is currently £2 cheaper than the most affordable subscription – Netflix Basic without ads […]]]>

Netflix is ​​launching a cheaper subscription plan next month that will include ads in its viewing experience for the first time.

The streaming platform’s new plan is called Basic with Ads, which will cost £4.99 per month in the UK and is currently £2 cheaper than the most affordable subscription – Netflix Basic without ads costs £6.99 £; Netflix Standard is now £10.99 and Netflix Premium is £15.99.

Basic with Ads will be rolling out to 12 countries around the world in November, including Australia, the US and the UK. It will cost $6.99 in the US.

Basic with Ads will not allow users to download titles for offline viewing, while they will only be able to stream Netflix to one screen at a time, just like the existing Basic plan.

Netflix says the ads will be between 15 and 30 seconds each and will run before and during their shows and movies, contributing to four or five minutes per hour of Netflix viewing. That’s less than the 12 minutes of adverts you’d see on ITV or Channel 4.

Subscribers won’t be able to skip them, but there will be frequency limits to ensure viewers don’t see the same ads too often. Some movies and TV shows will also not be available due to licensing restrictions.

“We’re confident that…we now have a price and a plan for every fan,” Netflix said in a press release. “While it’s still early days, we’re thrilled with the interest from consumers and the advertising community and couldn’t be more excited about what’s to come.”

The streamer has always managed to maintain its position amid fierce competition with Disney Plus and Amazon Prime Video without running ads during or before its TV shows or movies, instead relying on the rising cost of subscription to manage the growth of the platform.

However, the company lost over a million subscribers in the second quarter of this year and it will begin providing an update on that figure to investors next week.

Read on for everything you need to know about Netflix’s plan to turn to advertising to help fund a cheaper subscription tier and attract subscribers.

Does Netflix UK add ads to the platform?

YesNetflix co-CEO Ted Sarandos previously confirmed earlier this year that the streaming platform would launch a new ad-supported tier during an interview at Cannes.

“We left out a big customer segment, which was people who say, ‘Hey, Netflix is ​​too expensive for me and I don’t mind advertising,'” he said.

“We’re adding a level of ads for people who say, ‘Hey, I want a lower price and I’ll watch the ads.'”

He pointed out that while the ads are definitely coming, they will only run in that particular tier and regular subscribers won’t see them in “Netflix As You Know It Today.”

When will Netflix UK start running ads?

Netflix has confirmed that ads will be introduced in the new plan on November 3.

Basic with Ads will first launch in Canada and Mexico on November 1, before rolling out to Australia, Brazil, Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, Mexico, Korea, South, in Spain, the United Kingdom and the United States on November 3.

The New York Times previously reported that Netflix employees were told the ads would be introduced by the end of 2022.

This is an older timeline than when co-founder and co-CEO Reed Hastings first hinted at the concept in April, suggesting it could be at least a year or two before it never materialized.

However, given that Netflix’s stock price is down, an accelerated timeline makes sense.

Why does Netflix add ads?

The new ad-supported tier is the streamer’s response to their shrinking subscriber base and declining revenue. Netflix thinks it can attract new subscribers with a cheaper tier.

In April 2022, following reports of a shrinking user base, the company’s stock price fell sharply.

And last week, Netflix announced it had laid off 300 employees, or around 4% of its total workforce, in a second round of job cuts.

“Today, we unfortunately laid off approximately 300 employees. As we continue to invest significantly in the business, we have made these adjustments so that our costs increase in line with our slower revenue growth,” said a Netflix spokesperson on June 23.

“We are so grateful for all they have done for Netflix and are working hard to support them through this difficult transition,” the company said.

Netflix said it lost 200,000 subscribers in the first quarter, well below its forecast that it would add 2.5 million subscribers.

Additionally, its decision in March to suspend service in Russia after invading Ukraine resulted in the loss of 700,000 members.

How much will Netflix’s ad-supported tier cost?

Basic with Ads will cost £4.99 per month in the UK.

Netflix increased its prices in March 2022. Here are the current Netflix UK subscription costs.

  • £6.99 per month The cheapest subscription allows subscribers to watch on one device at a time in standard definition.
  • £10.99 per month Standard Subscription – Viewers can watch in HD and on two devices at once.
  • £15.99 per month Premium Subscription – Viewers can watch in Ultra HD, where available, on four devices at once.
