Netflix doesnt see any standout competitors yet

first_imgCindy Holland is Netflix’s vice president of original content.  Matt Winkelmeyer/Getty Images Though the streaming landscape may seem crowded, Netflix says it still doesn’t see many stand-out competitors. During a session at the Code Conference on Tuesday, Netflix Vice President of Original Content Cindy Holland said the company has been anticipating competition for years. Holland noted that though platforms like Disney Plus are on the way, Netflix always figured “all of these traditional players would enter into our space.” If anything, it was a motivation to invest in original content to begin with — eventually those traditional players might stop licensing to Netflix.”We believed this shift would all happen, it’s just taken many years longer than we thought,” Holland said.  Share your voice 0 Digital Mediacenter_img Tags Post a commentlast_img read more

Trump GOP Leaders Strain For MigrantKids Solution

(AP Photo/Jacquelyn Martin)President Donald Trump on Tuesday told House Republicans he is “1,000 percent” behind their rival immigration bills, providing little clear direction for party leaders searching for a way to defuse the escalating controversy over family separations at the southern border.And it’s uncertain if Trump’s support will be enough to push any legislation through the divided GOP majority.GOP lawmakers, increasingly fearful of a voter backlash in November, met with Trump for about an hour at the Capitol to try to find a solution that both holds to Trump’s hard-line immigration policy and ends the practice of taking migrant children from parents charged with entering the country illegally. Many lawmakers say Trump could simply reverse the administration’s “zero tolerance” policy and keep families together.While Trump held firm to his tough immigration stance in an earlier appearance Tuesday, he acknowledged during the closed-door meeting that the coverage of family separations is taking a toll. Trump said his daughter, Ivanka, had told him the situation with the families looks bad, one lawmaker said.APMexican Foreign Secretary Luis Videgaray Caso, right, listens to Carlos Manuel Sada, Undersecretary for North America, at a press conference in Mexico City, Tuesday, June 19, 2018.

Videgaray said that the country does not promote illegal migration, but it “cannot remain indifferent in the face of something that clearly represents a violation of human rights.” (AP Photo/Moises Castillo)“He said, ‘Politically, this is bad,’” said Rep. Randy Weber, R-Texas. “It’s not about the politics, this is the right thing to do.”But Trump touched on many topics during the meeting, including his historic meeting with the North Korean Kim Jong Un. He praised a few GOP lawmakers by name for defending him on TV, according to one Republican in the room. And he took a jab at Rep. Mark Sanford, congratulating the South Carolina Republican on his recent campaign, according to others granted anonymity to discuss the private meeting. Sanford, a frequent Trump critic, lost after his GOP primary opponent highlighted his criticism of the president.As Trump walked out of the session in the Capitol basement, he was confronted by about a half-dozen House Democrats, who yelled, “Stop separating our families!”Leaders in both the House and Senate are struggling to shield the party’s lawmakers from the public outcry over images of children taken from migrant parents and held in cages at the border. But they are running up against Trump’s shifting views on specifics and his determination, according to advisers, not to look soft on his signature immigration issue, the border wall.Rep. Kristi Noem, R-S.D., said Trump told lawmakers he “would continue to support the legislation, and that people shouldn’t be worried that he would change his mind.” She said it was a light moment. “Everybody laughed.”Even if Republicans manage to pass an immigration bill through the House, which is a tall order, the fight is all but certain to fizzle in the Senate.Sen. Chuck Schumer, the Democratic leader from New York, is adamant that Trump can end the family separations on his own and that legislation is not needed.Without Democratic support, Republicans cannot muster the 60 votes needed to move forward on legislation.Schumer said with most Americans against family separations, it’s Republicans “feeling the heat on this issue, and that’s why they’re squirming.”In the House, GOP leaders scrambled Tuesday to produce a revised version of the broader immigration bill that would keep children in detention longer than now permitted — but with their parents.The major change unveiled Tuesday would loosen rules that now limit the amount of time minors can be held to 20 days, according to a GOP source familiar with the measure. Instead, the children could be detained indefinitely with their parents.The revision would also give the Department of Homeland Security the authority to use $7 billion in border technology funding to pay for family detention centers, said the person, who was not authorized to discuss the matter by name and commented only on condition of anonymity.In the Senate, meanwhile, Republicans are rallying behind a different approach. Theirs is narrow legislation proposed by Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, that would allow detained families to stay together in custody while expediting their hearings and possible deportation proceedings.Cruz’s bill would double the number of federal immigration judges, authorize new temporary shelters to house migrant families and limit the processing of asylum cases to no more than 14 days — a goal immigrant advocates say would be difficult to meet.“While cases are pending, families should stay together,” tweeted Cruz, who is in an unexpectedly tough re-election battle.Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., told reporters he’s reaching out to Democrats for bipartisan backing.The family separation issue boiled over Tuesday at a House hearing on an unrelated subject, when protesters with babies briefly shut down proceedings.Maryland Rep. Elijah Cummings, the top Democrat on the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, pleaded with Republicans on the panel to “stand up” to Trump.Under the administration’s current policy, all unlawful crossings are referred for prosecution — a process that moves adults to the custody of the U.S. Marshals Service and sends many children to facilities run by the Department of Health and Human Services. Under the Obama administration, such families were usually referred for civil deportation proceedings, not requiring separation.More than 2,300 minors were separated from their families at the border from May 5 through June 9, according to the Department of Homeland Security.The national outcry has roiled midterm election campaigns, emboldening Democrats while putting Republicans on the defensive.Top conservatives, including key Trump allies, have introduced bills to keep the migrant families together. Rep. Mark Meadows of North Carolina, a leader of the conservative Freedom Caucus, said he has introduced a measure that “becomes a backup proposal” if others fail.The House is to vote later this week on two bills that address broader immigration issues to protect young immigrant “Dreamers,” who have been living in the U.S. illegally since childhood, from deportation and fund Trump’s border wall.But outlook for passage is dim. One conservative measure is expected to fail. And it’s unclear if Trump’s backing will help the compromise legislation that GOP leaders negotiated with moderate Republicans. Rep. Steve Scalise of Lousiana, the GOP whip, told reporters he thought it had enough support to pass. Votes are expected Thursday.Rep. Scott Perry, R-Pa.,a member of the House Freedom Caucus, says he doesn’t like compromise bill “because it’s all compromising in one direction.”Perry was not at the meeting with Trump, but said he doubts the president’s words will affect his position.“Well, good for him, but he’s not running for Congress.”last_img read more

The Himalayan expedition

first_imgCascading waterfalls, mighty mountains, wild forests and the lush green valleys  make for everyone’s idea of utopia. For some it is a reality that they breathe day in and day out. The Himalayas, nurtures and sustains the faiths and socio-religious beliefs of its civilization. It cradles myths, legends and tales – some told some untold. Author Alka Raghuvanshi and photographer Sanjay Sharma capture these magical moments in places few have ventured due to reasons of inaccessibility in the book Also Read – ‘Playing Jojo was emotionally exhausting’ Garhwal Himalayas- Chorus of Solitude. ‘Perhaps it was ordained that many of the trips were made well before the book was even envisaged. And as the reader goes through the maze of legends and reality juxtaposed in weird and wonderful patterns, it would be important to remember that this journey into the unforgiving terrain – one wrong move is all that separates life from life eternal,’ says the author Alka Raghuvanshi. The photographer made endless trips to most places featured in this book in different seasons in his quest for getting just the right picture, including earlier this year in adverse weather conditions. Being the last documentation of the Uttrakhand region before havoc, this book written over six years assumes even more importance in this context.last_img read more

Despite Long Litigious Past Samsung and Google Announce 10 Year CrossLicensing Agreement

first_img Free Webinar | Sept. 9: The Entrepreneur’s Playbook for Going Global Growing a business sometimes requires thinking outside the box. 2 min read Are Google and Samsung frenemies now? After years of litigation over mobile technology patents, it appears as though the tech giants have finally made peace. The companies announced today a decade-long cross-licensing agreement that covers existing patents and those that may be filed in the future.“With this agreement, Samsung and Google gain access to each other’s industry-leading patent portfolios, paving the way for deeper collaboration on research and development of current and future products and technologies,” Samsung said in a statement.Both companies have tens of thousands of patents, however, the statement does not specify which ones are covered under the agreement.Two years ago, Samsung agreed to pay Microsoft royalties and collaborate on the development of Microsoft-based phones in order to avoid going to court over violating its patents. At the time, the agreement was seen as a setback to Google which had been attempting to establish itself as the standard in mobile operating systems by giving its Android software to smartphone and tablet makers for free.The deal with Google comes at a rough patch for Samsung, which could be strategically aligning itself as it continues to fight a major dispute with Apple. Last November, a U.S. jury in federal court ordered Samsung to pay Apple roughly $290 million in damages. The companies have agreed to a mediation meeting sometime before Feb. 19.Related: In Patent War, Apple and Samsung to Try Mediation Before March Court Date January 27, 2014 Opinions expressed by Entrepreneur contributors are their own.
