Netflix Canada is hiking prices in its biggest increase yet

TORONTO — Another price hike is on the way for Netflix Canada subscribers as competition heats up among the biggest streaming video services.The company behind “Narcos” and “Orange Is the New Black” is introducing its biggest price increase yet for both new subscribers and current members.Netflix’s standard plan will now cost $3 more — or $13.99 a month — to watch content on two screens at a time.Bell doubles down on Crave with soft rebrand, premium service that includes current HBO contentBell Media opens gates to HBO content, Hollywood movies under new Crave packageNetflix adds to growing debt pile with $2-billion bond issue to fund new showsThe basic plan — which does not offer high-definition video and only allows one stream — rises a dollar to $9.99 a month.Premium plan subscribers pay $3 more — or $16.99 a month — for up to four simultaneous streams and ultra high definition 4K video.Netflix says the higher prices are effective immediately for new subscribers, while existing users will be notified by email before their bills rise in the coming weeks.The company most recently increased prices for most plans by a dollar about a year and a half ago.Netflix says the move will help fund upcoming TV series and films as well as overall improvements to the Netflix platform.But the company also faces intense competition next year as the number of streaming platforms in the Canadian marketplace with attractive offerings grows.Earlier this month, Bell Media introduced a higher tier of its Crave streaming service that includes a selection of recent Hollywood movies and new HBO programs. The package, dubbed Crave+, costs about $20 per month.Next year, Disney jumps into the market with its own streaming platform. Disney+ is expected to be stocked with movies and original series like a prequel to “Star Wars: Rogue One” and a Marvel superhero show based on the character Loki from “Thor” and “The Avengers.”Other platforms could make headway too, including a new service operated by Criterion that specializes in classic films, and CBS All Access, which is beefing up its library of original shows that include “Tell Me A Story” and “Strange Angel.” read more

ASA Sees WOTUS Repeal as Step Towards Regulatory Certainty

first_imgWashington, D.C. Sept. 12, 2019.  The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) said in June 2017 that it would repeal the Waters of the United States (WOTUS) rule and today has followed through on that promise. EPA along with the Department of the Army announced the repeal of the 2015 rule that expanded the definition of “waters of the United States,” or WOTUS, under the Clean Water Act.The American Soybean Association (ASA) views this move as a significant step towards greater regulatory certainty for soybean farmers, with ASA president Davie Stephens, soy grower from Clinton, Kentucky, commenting, “We agree with the goal of assuring clean water, but in reality, the proposed rule was an unworkable and impractical regulation, especially for farmers and ranchers.  Creeks, streams and ditches on our land were unduly subjected to a broad, one-size-fits-all regulatory definition that made no sense for individual farms and went beyond the intent of Congress. This is great news for soybean and other farmers.”EPA is developing a new rule that protects waterways while still offering a workable solution for farmers, and that considers comments submitted by ASA and other impacted stakeholders. Until a new rule is finalized, jurisdictions will return to the regulatory framework that was in place prior to the 2015 WOTUS rule nationwide, putting an end to the state-by-state patchwork of regulations.last_img read more

Is poor serviceability reason behind frequent AN32 crashes

first_imgIAF Antonov AN32twitterThe Soviet era manufactured Antonov-32 aircraft of the Indian Airforce (IAF) went missing on Monday (June 3) during its Jorhat-Mechuka flight in Assam with the entire 13-member feared dead.However, the search operation to locate the missing aircraft is still underway. One of the most reliable aircraft for ferrying troops and logistics to the forward posts is now facing a lack of upgrades. As per a report published in the Economic Times, the AN-32 of the IAF is yet to be upgraded with airframe strengthening, advanced avionics, and radars.Notably, more than 100 of these aircrafts in-service face poor serviceability, tardy maintenance, shortage of spares, huge delays in life extensions and overhauls.One of the officers of the Indian Airforce said, “The AN-32 in question, with six officers and seven others on board, was non-upgraded but it’s too early to say whether the accident was due to some technical snag or human error. Flying in the Arunachal sector is also risky, with mountains hiding behind clouds. The weather can pack up at any time.”It is to be noted that under similar circumstances, another AN-32 twin-engine turboprop aircraft on a regular sortie had crashed in the same Jorhat-Mechuka-Mohanbari sector exactly a decade ago, killing all 13 personnel of the defence forces. One of the officers privy to the investigation of the crashed AN-32 said, “The court of inquiry into that crash held it was due to ‘human error (aircrew)’. The pilots apparently got disoriented after entering some clouds, with the aircraft hitting a mountain in what is technically called ‘controlled flight into terrain.” Parked Indian Air Force’s transport aircrafts Antonov An-32 (foreground) and Dornier Do 228 are seen from the air traffic control during a media tour at the Yelahanka Air Force Station.ReutersAging fleet with the poor serviceability and maintenance is the major reason for the crashing of these aircraft. Around 118 AN-32s were inducted in the Indian Airforce, between 1984 and 1991, since then the aircraft has a better record of successfully ferrying troops and supplies to forward bases.But with operational life nearing its end, the Government of India signed an agreement worth $400 million to upgrade the aging AN-32s in Ukraine, the country where it was originally manufactured. “The total technical life of 25 years of the AN-32s was coming to an end at that time,” the officer added. As per the plan, the initial lot of these aircraft were to be upgraded in Ukraine with the rest going through a ‘total technical life extension, overhaul and re-equipment’ in India. The objective was to increase the operational life of these power horses, 15 years beyond the original 25 years. But like any other project involving the upgrades in the Indian defence forces, the project faced turbulence with delayed maintenance.Shockingly, only 50 of more than 100 AN-32s upgraded till date. The officer further added “The upgrade project, which was to be completed by 2013, has almost halted. Apart from airframe strengthening to increase operational life from the earlier 25 years to 40, the upgraded AN-32s were to be fitted with enhanced ground-warning systems, new weather radars, advanced GPS, multi-functional displays and the like.” Can Lockheed Martin F-21 meet Indian Air Force’s long-term strategic goals?

Instagrams IGTV Adds Support for Horizontal Videos — but Still No Monetization

first_imgInstagram is still searching to find the right recipe for IGTV, the long-form video service it debuted nearly a year ago.In the hopes of encouraging usage of IGTV, Instagram is breaking the original design that allowed only vertical video– to now support horizontally oriented videos as well. It’s a change that bows to the reality that most people prefer to create and watch long-form video in landscape mode.But will it help IGTV, positioned as a YouTube rival, finally get off the ground? One of its shortcomings has nothing to do with video formats: IGTV, which is available within the Instagram app as well as in standalone IGTV apps, still lacks monetization features that would provide greater incentives for creators to distribute original video on the platform. Instagram says monetization plans for IGTV are on the drawing board but it isn’t ready to discuss them. The theory is that IGTV’s support for landscape mode will yield a bumper crop of diverse new content, and, by extension, a lift in viewing. The change comes after Instagram in February introduced a new feature letting creators post previews of IGTV videos to their Instagram feed. That helped drive up IGTV views, Instagram claims, but it hasn’t disclosed any specific usage metrics. Related Popular on Variety Facebook Reportedly Working on New Snapchat-Like Messaging App for Instagram Instagram decided to add support for horizontal video viewing after getting numerous requests from creators and users for the feature, said Instagram product manager Ashley Yuki. By default, landscape videos shared on IGTV will display in vertical orientation (in a letterboxed view); users can select the landscape view and rotate their phones to watch them in full-screen mode.“This is about making [IGTV] a home for great content, regardless of how it’s shot,” Yuki said. “We want to remove those kinds of barriers and let creators do what they do best. There’s a lot of content that doesn’t fit into vertical.”When Instagram launched IGTV, it touted the vertical-video-only design as a strength — and a differentiator from YouTube. “It’s built for how you actually use your phone, so videos are full screen and vertical,” co-founder and then-CEO Kevin Systrom wrote in the June 2018 blog post announcing IGTV.Now Instagram says the addition of horizontal videos to IGTV is an “evolution” of the product, similar to when the main app expanded beyond square photos in 2015. Whereas the Instagram app limits videos to 60 seconds, IGTV allows anyone to post videos up to 10 minutes in length (and a subset of creators can share videos up to an hour long).To be sure, Instagram remains bullish on vertical videos. “Vertical feels native and immersive,” Yuki said. “At the end of the day, what’s important is creators can use the best format to share their content.” Vertical videos work best for creators who want an “up-close-and-personal” feel, she said, citing as examples Baby Ariel’s “Love Triangle” series and Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson’s IGTV videos. A horizontal format works better when there are multiple people in a frame and for high-motion content (like dance and sports).center_img ×Actors Reveal Their Favorite Disney PrincessesSeveral actors, like Daisy Ridley, Awkwafina, Jeff Goldblum and Gina Rodriguez, reveal their favorite Disney princesses.

We know how important it is for creators,” she said. “Some of the thoughts there are making sure we get that right whenever we’re ready to make that step. It’s a complex step to align the incentives across the ecosystem, to make sure creators are getting their fair share.”Meanwhile, Instagram has made other recent changes to the IGTV app. Those include switching from category-based browsing with horizontal scrolling to a single, algorithm-based feed of suggested videos in a vertical scroll — copying elements of TikTok and Snapchat apps, TechCrunch reported this week.Currently, the IGTV iOS app ranks No. 171 in Apple’s App Store photo and video category, whereas Instagram is No. 2 (behind YouTube).last_img read more

Painting for a cause

first_imgThe alarming rise in the number of rape cases, abuse and trafficking faced by the fairer sex has prompted many individuals and organisations to step up and make an effort to stop these dastardly acts. The Apne Aap Women Worldwide, which works at the grassroots level, is one such initiative taken.And in order to make the world a better place, it is best to start changing mentalities right from the budding stage. So with the intention of changing the thought process of younger generation, the group recently organised a poster making competition in Delhi. Young artists produced some really wonderful and thought-provoking works. Also Read – ‘Playing Jojo was emotionally exhausting’‘The focus is how sensitively these issues can be presented and the competition was an attempt in making young people participate and acknowledge these aspects of our social life,’ said Abhilasha Kumari, director, Apne Aap. ‘The roar may have died down, the issue hasn’t. The response of people, is very reassuring,’ said Manisha Parekh.Apurva Shroff, one of the winners, feels that it is only men who can make women feel safe. Describing her poster, she says: ‘It signifies that we live in a male-dominated society and the cufflinks signify a man’s hand. The different shades of hand — black, grey, white — represent the different type of men around us. It’s high time men should rise against rape because it’s only men who can make women feel secure. My poster says ‘Help her feel safe and rise against rape’’.We agree.last_img read more

Maldives Revisited Barefoot luxury – more footprints in the sand

first_imgSource = Travel Secrets by Andrew J. Wood Travel Secrets by Andrew J. Wood Maldives Revisited: Barefoot luxury – more footprints in the sandMaldives Revisited: Barefoot luxury – more footprints in the sandMy first visit to the Maldives was in the 90’s and I have returned every year since 2013, a total of five visits.The Maldives is a special place for me. It has a completely unique environment and I thoroughly relax and I enjoy chilling out in a really peaceful and beautiful environment.Barefoot luxury – more footprints in the sandTravel Secrets by Andrew J. WoodWith a rich culture, gorgeous vistas and spectacular marine life, it’s one of my favourite destinations. I quickly adopt a ‘life is good’ attitude. One of total relaxation and enjoying being away from my usual routines – it draws me back year after year. I can truly say that the Maldives is a brilliant holiday destination – one of the best kept secrets.With 1,190 islands, land is still the scarcest resource in the country, making up less than 1% of its surface area and one of the lowest lying countries in the world (average height of only 1.5 metres).My choice of hotel for the last four years has been the Centara Grand. Being a former hotelier I know there’s nothing like the personal touch. As a regular guest, it’s extra special. You get a sense of belonging; a sense of family. A special kind of relationship between you and the management and the whole team. It is something quite unique and this is absolutely the case – quintessentially Centara Grand Island Resort & Spa Maldives.Bangkok Airways www.bangkokair.comTravelling there could not be easier. Travelling from Bangkok with my partner Pichai, we boarded a direct flight to the International Airport in Malé, the capital and most populous city in the Republic of Maldives. Taking just 4 hours 15 mins from Suvarnabhumi Airport with Bangkok Airways. Over the years, I have become a frequent flyer member of their FlyerBonus Club and take advantage, of 10kg extra baggage as a result. From Malé it’s just a short 25 minute hop by seaplane to the resort.The extra 10kg luggage is handy but not really necessary. You don’t need that much luggage in the Maldives. Staying at a beach resort, you spend much of the time in shorts and T-shirt and quite often for me, as the title suggests – barefoot. Just perfect.Travel Secrets by Andrew J. WoodI just love sea planes. Arriving at the resort aboard a twin engined De Havilland Sea Otter is very special, an experience not to be missed. It’s a great way to arrive, stylish and fun.There is no strict dress code for the restaurants, except swim wear is not allowed and in the evenings you have to cover up a little more than lunch time. Not a problem as most guests wear something loose fitting anyway due to the temperature. Cotton seems to work best.So to summarise you do not need very heavy luggage. Travel light.Spending much of the day outdoors and in bright sunshine don’t forget to bring a high factor suncream. The resort provides free SPF 20 replenished daily as a bathroom amenity. I recommended however using SPF 50 to 70 for your neck and face, especially at the beginning of your holiday.Bring lots of reading material (there is a library if you forget or run out) and your headphones (if you like to listen and relax to music, as I do).The resort has many daily activities with boat trips to nearby islands; fishing trips and sunset cruises with dolphin watching.Over the years it has been interesting to watch the development of the resort. The Centara is no stranger to change. Improvements evolve and without ever loosing the designers original concept for the resort. It has improved organically – with care. The inclusion of 20 Sunset OceanCentara Grand Resort & Spa – Pool VillaBy Andrew J. WoodPool Villas has been so successful they are often sold out. They incorporate a small horizonless plunge pool in the balcony of the Villa and it’s a perfect place to soak and relax especially at sunset with the fabulous colours above the turquoise sea. The colour of the sea a perfect contrast against the red, orange and yellow hues of the setting sun. The low lying landscape provides some of the most brilliant sunsets you will ever see. To view this with a cocktail in your hand – magical and perfect!Dining at the Centara is a delight. The resort is family friendly so there is a wide choice of dining options.We particularly enjoyed eating at the Island Club. A fine dining restaurant with a great kitchen. It’s special and relaxed. The menu changes daily for lunch and dinner. The service is faultless.Being a Thai owned resort, it comes as no surprise that the resort caters for lovers of Thai cuisine. Arguably the fastest growing global culinary ‘flavour’. Thai cuisine is a huge phenomenon.The resort’s Suan Bua (lotus pond) is a wonderful Thai restaurant with an exceptional Chef – Khun Ning. We ate regularly here during our two week vacation. Alternating between Azzura Italian Restaurant and Reef the International Buffet Restaurant with its popular Teppanyaki Counter.The resort is all-inclusive, which at first, 4 years ago, worried me (would it be cheap and cheerful, with heaps of French fries and burgers? Fast high-fat / high-carbs meals?) But I needn’t have worried. It’s a great concept with great food.You can completely forget about taking your wallet anywhere in the resort. You never need to figure out your spending – it’s all included – going to bars and restaurants is trouble free and most importantly, stress free.Travel Secrets by Andrew J. WoodThe island is packed with water sports. With snorkelling; para gliding; banana boats; mini water slides; a supervised kids club and a scuba club. On top of this, are daily activities including spa treatments; kids fish feeding; shark/stingray feeding and a new recently introduced yoga program with the extraordinary Dr Raj.You can learn to scuba dive at the resort, starting with an intro course that is included in the resort package. Also included free are fishing and sunset cruises with dolphin watching.There are regular diving trips, for the more experienced diver, which are chargeable.For me the top activity is swimming with Whale Sharks. They are called sharks but actually they are the world’s largest fish, plankton eaters.The trip consists of a 45 minute boat ride to the area where the whale sharks might be feeding and once spotted, snorkelling 30 to 45 minutes in the general area. Growing up to 9m long, these majestic creatures gently swim along, giant mouths open, as we watch in awe at their immense power and beauty.This is probably on my list of top 10 things to do in the world, such a unique and extraordinary experience.Travel Secrets by Andrew J. WoodWhat else should you do? Well for me quite often – nothing. (How often can you do that?)You are you in charge of your own time, you’re on holiday so relax. Lay back and soak up the good karma, which is so easy to do as there is so little that causes you stress.The staff are fantastic and always on hand to offer help and advise. It all flows so well. You adopt to a slower island pace. Service is effortless and seamless. The staff work together as one big happy team.The resort has a very extensive library, and for parents with kids there are no worries about cuts and scrapes, with a full-time medical professional and clinic, help is on hand.Travel SecretsAndrew Wood and Pichai VisutriratanaAbout the author Andrew J.

stop-over in Mahatma Gandhi’s political journey in India On 11 April 1917 Gandhi arrived at Muzaffarpur railway station to be received by Acharya JB Kripalani who was teaching in a college which is now known as Langat Singh College Though Gandhi and Kripalani had met earlier Mahatma’s unassuming personality made it difficult for his host to locate him in the crowd of passengers It took a while to spot him and take him to Kripalani’s house for his onward journey to Champaran – the spot of Gandhi’s first Satyagraha campaign in IndiaMuzaffarpur railway station Ajay Singh/Firstpost Contours of the Champaran movement against exploitation of indigo farmers in the region took shape in Muzaffarpur Much before Gandhi acquired the unparalleled status in the rest of India he became a leader of Bihari peasants who looked at him as a saviour Bihar had no dearth of leaders in those times Rajendra Prasad known as Rajendra Babu was an influential lawyer But none of them took up the farmers’ case like Gandhi whose presence in Champaran caused nightmares for the British empirePlace where Mahatma Gandhi took bath in Champaran Ajay Singh/Firstpost Gandhi and his host Kripalani were not Biharis Yet they commanded immense respect among people here Kripalani later left Muzaffarpur to head the Gujarat Vidyapeeth the ‘national university’ founded by Gandhi in Ahmedabad This exemplifies a unique historical bonding Gujarat shares with Bihar People of Bihar never had a parochial outlook towards outsiders Rather they were quickly adopted and assimilated in a Bihari identity In the post-Emergency phase Nitish Kumar’s political mentor and feisty socialist leader George Fernandes found in the place a home away from his own state – Karnataka He was so much assimilated in the Bihari identity that in the 1996 Lok Sabha election he was given a new identity: George Fernandes Mahto Probably his association with Kurmi-Koeri politics in the post-Mandal phase gave him this caste status This is the precisely the reason why Nitish Kumar’s project of invoking Bihar pride during his term has not succeeded despite his best efforts In the ongoing assembly elections too Nitish Kumar tried to rake up the issue of outsider-versus-insider by referring to Narendra Modi-Amit Shah duo as outsiders but could hardly find traction among the electorate But politics unlike history is a discipline of shorter memories In less than a decade’s time Fernandes slipped into a history what to say of the memories of Gandhi Kripalani and Rajenda Prasad Once a thriving business and cultural centre of north Bihar Muzaffarpur is a representative of the grotesque distortion that shaped the modern north Bihar The urban area of the city that has a population of over a million lacks even basic infrastructure Highways have improved but streets connecting various parts of the city are potholed There are hardly a few hundred houses belonging to the city’s elite particularly administrative officers who get water supply through tap Almost ninety percent of the population use hand-pumps to draw underground water for consumption Of late a mysterious disease tentatively diagnosed as Japanese Encephalitis hits the city every year and kills thousands of children Local residents say that every year top politicians would pay ritual visits but would do nothing to check the outbreak of the disease Despite lack of planning and poor infrastructure Muzaffarpur has evolved its own logic of urbanisation For instance the city is divided in clusters of doctors jewellery shops and food items Interestingly the city still carries the legacy of the nautch girl tradition that has degenerated now into flesh trade Once again there is a unique historical and cultural context to the legacy of nautch girls Barely

into a disciple of Gautam Buddha was beautifully described in a Hindi fiction Vaishali ki Nagar Vadhu by Acharya Chatursen The culture of keeping ‘courtesans’ in the cities found a certain social legitimacy in a feudal Bihar In the changing context that Vaishali model epitomises not only a cultural degeneration but also the perversion of politics In 1994 Vaishali emerged as the political role model for Bihar when Anand Mohan Singh a formidable gangster won the seat against Lalu Prasad Yadav’s candidate at the peak of mandalised politics in Bihar In fact Singh rallied around himself forces against Lalu and punctured his aura of invincibility But the euphoria was short-lived as Lalu struck back with a massive mandate in 1995 and marginalised all his opponents including Nitish Kumar who had floated the Samata Party after breaking up from Lalu In the 2014 Lok Sabha elections the BJP-led coalition fielded dreaded warlord Rama Singh against amiable and popular Raghuvansh Prasad Singh of
