Les résultats de M6 en baisse

Les résultats de M6 en baisse | GOSSIP, NEWS & SPORT! | Scoop.it

Malgré de bonnes audiences, la chaîne de Nicolas de Tavernost est en déclin sur l'année 2011.
Le groupe de médias M6 a publié hier un résultat net en baisse de 4,7% en 2011, justifiant ce recul par l'augmentation de l'impôt sur les sociétés, malgré une amélioration de son résultat opérationnel courant (+1,2%), grâce aux chaînes numériques.
Le résultat net recule à 149,6 millions "principalement en raison du changement de fiscalité sur l'impôt sur les sociétés (majoré à 36,1% contre 34,43%)", explique le groupe dans un communiqué. Ce résultat est en ligne avec le consensus qui tablait sur un repli de 4,5% à 150 millions.
En revanche, M6 Métropole se félicite d'avoir "confirmé l'efficacité de son modèle stratégique" en enregistrant un résultat opérationnel courant consolidé (EBITA) en hausse de 1,2% sur un an, à 245 millions, alors que le consensus tablait sur un recul de 4,9%, à 230 millions.

A Time-Lapse Map of Every Nuclear Explosion Since 1945 - by Isao Hashimoto

apanese artist Isao Hashimoto has created a beautiful, undeniably scary time-lapse map of the 2053 nuclear explosions which have taken place between 1945 and 1998, beginning with the Manhattan Project's "Trinity" test near Los Alamos and concluding with Pakistan's nuclear tests in May of 1998. This leaves out North Korea's two alleged nuclear tests in this past decade (the legitimacy of both of which is not 100% clear).

In Venezuela Housing Crisis, Squatters Find 45-Story Walkup

In Venezuela Housing Crisis, Squatters Find 45-Story Walkup | GOSSIP, NEWS & SPORT! | Scoop.it
An unfinished skyscraper occupied by squatters is a symbol of Venezuela’s financial crisis in the 1990s, state control of the economy and a housing shortage.

 

This skyscraper that was once a symbol of wealth, in an incredible paradigm shift, has now become is occupied by squatters. The lack of a vibrant formal economy and more formal housing leads to a lack of suitable options for many urban residents--especially with problems in the rural countryside. A complex web of geographic factors needs to be explained to understand this most fascinating situation. The video link "Squatters on the Skyline" embedded in the article is a must see.

Maegan Connor's curator insight, December 17, 2013 5:34 PM

The video we watched of the squatters living in an unfinished skyscraper was unlike anything I've ever seen before. In a country with such high population rates and a housing shortage, people have gotten creative and made homes in this 45 story building where they share what would have been office spaces and bathrooms.  Over 2,500 people have moved into the dilapidated skyscraper and made a home out of it for their families. They have rigged electricity that the government does not provide for them and built small stores on almost every floor.  The people have not been evicted because the government of Venezuela knows of the housing shortages, yet does not fix it.  

I feel ashamed that a country with so many oil resources has such high rates of poverty and no one is fixing it.  It shows the corruption in the government through an extreme although innovative example.

Elizabeth Bitgood's curator insight, February 17, 2014 10:46 AM

The problems in Venezuela with housing and the lack of response to the problem by the government has led people to become squatters.  The using of the abandoned buildings was a good idea by the original squatters.  The vacant buildings can house many of the countries it is a shame that the government did not think of this solution to the housing problem and vacant building first, if they had, they could have made sure they were safer for the residence.  The idea of a vertical city springing up in this building is also an interesting one.  Not only are squatters living in these buildings but creating businesses and other services for the residence.

Jess Deady's curator insight, February 18, 2014 1:02 PM

In life, I constantly find myself comparing situations with what I read and what I know. Imagine this skyscraper is the Prudential in Boston. How could something meant to be so great fall to its death (and to peoples literal deaths)? One day there is a massive financial building occupied with bankers and lavishness. The next day there is a skyscraper in the form of a house. Housing shortages are happening everywhere and Venezuela is being hit hard in this situation. Imagine visiting this country and asking where someone lives? "Oh, I live in the Tower of David, which used to mean a whole lot more."

« 20 Minutes » toujours rentable

« 20 Minutes » toujours rentable | GOSSIP, NEWS & SPORT! | Scoop.it

Le gratuit a dégagé l'an dernier 2,5 millions d'euros de résultat d'exploitation, malgré de lourds investissements dans sa diffusion

La coûteuse course à la diffusion dans laquelle se sont lancés les gratuits en France n'a que légèrement entamé la rentabilité de « 20 Minutes ». Le quotidien, détenu à 50/50 par le groupe Ouest France et le norvégien Schibsted, a en effet dégagé en 2011 un bénéfice d'exploitation (Ebitda) de 2,5 millions d'euros, en baisse de 30 % par rapport à l'année précédente (3,6 millions d'euros).
La société a investi 6 millions d'euros pour élargir sa diffusion à 20 nouvelles villes en mars dernier, portant le nombre d'exemplaires distribués chaque jour de 761.503 à 977.354 en moyenne entre 2010 et 2011 (+27 %). Il a poursuivi cette stratégie en début d'année, en s'implantant dans 8 nouvelles villes, portant à 40 le nombre total d'agglomérations où il est diffusé. « Nous avons porté notre taux de couverture des actifs urbains de 40 à 98 % », indique Pierre-Jean Bozo, président de 20 Minutes France.

THe History of Text Messaging [Infographic]

THe History of Text Messaging [Infographic] | GOSSIP, NEWS & SPORT! | Scoop.it

It’s hard to believe but it has been just over 19 years since the first text message was sent from a computer to a mobile phone, and 18 years since the first phones were produced that allowed people to send text messages to one another.  

 

With text messaging, language has evolved as well. Who hasn’t heard of LOL, a word which has been added to the Oxford English Dictionary (and which doesn’t mean Lots of Love, as some people think). The concept of “sexting” has also given rise to its own phone language

Deals, encoding and standards can lower barriers to scaling multi-screen TV

Deals, encoding and standards can lower barriers to scaling multi-screen TV | GOSSIP, NEWS & SPORT! | Scoop.it

Are there ways to reduce the load of Internet video? Yes, which is why encoding start-up EyeIO, which came out of stealth mode in early February with the announcement that Netflix has licensed its technology, is attracting attention. As reported by Fierce Online Video, the company was in New York on the day of the announcement, visiting with other prospects. EyeIO Chairman Charles Steinberg (formerly of Sony) told editor Jim O’Neil that a list of potential customers would be long, including “anyone who want(s) to delivery quality video and dramatically use less bandwidth on it.”

 

How the technology works remains a bit of a mystery. CEO and CTO Rodolfo Vargas described his software as an encoding 2.0 engine that uses “artificial intelligence” to sense or view the video coming in and going out. (Hence EyeIO.) Unlike encoding techniques that only “massage the video” from the top level, this engine deals with the “elementary streams.” As such, Vargas said it stands apart from MPEG segmenting implementations, such as HTTP Live Streaming (HLS) or Dynamic Adaptive Streaming over HTTP (DASH).

 

Netflix is an M-DASH supporter. According to a Netflix spokesman, the company has been using fMP4 files since the beginning of its streaming service in 2007 and has been engaged in the M-DASH standards efforts since September 2010. “Our media files are already DASH-compliant, and we see DASH as having immediate value as it standardizes many device capabilities that can used by Netflix stand-alone streaming applications,” the spokesman wrote via email.
