Premium / Analysis: Hapag-Lloyd – a hungry Maersk may be waiting to pounce

first_img Forgotten your password? Please click here Premium subscriber LOGIN << Go back The behaviour of the Hapag-Lloyd share price since late 2016 proves the bulls in container shipping circles may be right in largely ignoring the risks surrounding the sector’s leading players, which continue to show optimism after a solid start to the year.The fundamentals of the German carrier, however, suggest that if a best-case scenario doesn’t play out, and rate levels become more difficult to maintain, the recently drafted optimistic scenarios could become a nightmare as soon as 2019 for its ...

A-team programme performs vital role – West

first_img BETTER PREPARED “This is a home series, but when you travel and play in different conditions, it adds to a player’s methods, it adds to his experience, and the beauty of having them back on the calendar, I feel that the players coming through the programme will be better prepared to move forward to the next level. “It is required to be fitted in between the regional tournaments and international level, so they must be treated with importance. “We use them to develop the players not just for the time we are together, but that they can take back to their franchises that would allow them to progress on a long-term basis than just in a three-match series.” MONTEGO BAY, Jamaica (CMC): Head coach Graeme West believes the West Indies A-team programme performs the vital dual role of feeding players into the international side and also strengthening regional franchises by helping players enhance their skills. The Englishman, who has overseen the programme of recent, said the various tours had ensured that regional players developed their ability in differing conditions, experience that could be then utilised both at the domestic and international levels. “They are invaluable to the players. It allows them to play against different methods,” West said ahead of today’s start of the opening four-day Test between West Indies A and Sri Lanka A at the Trelawny Multipurpose Stadium.last_img read more

I can say though that it’s already looking like it’s shaping up to be another stellar event.last_img read more

Traditional means of personalizing ads to appeal to Gen Z and millennials are stale, according to new research from video platform VidMob.VidMob surveyed 1,000 16- to 24-year-olds (Gen Z) and 1,000 25- to 34-year-olds (millennials) about a number of issues related to how they act online, including their behaviors around social media and video advertising.The survey found that ads that young adults were more likely to interact with were those that reflect similar taste or style (55 percent) than ads with a celebrity (45 percent) or people the same age (29 percent). This is opposed to more traditional methods of personalization, such as matching gender, age, ethnicity or featuring a person’s name.Variances emerged between the age groups. For example, 41 percent of Gen Z respond to ads they feel are visually beautiful versus only 32 percent of millennials.The study found that 44 percent of Gen Z get annoyed or start to dislike brands when their ads are overly repetitive, while 34 percent of millennials either tune out or start to dislike. VidMob Chief Marketing Officer Stephanie Bohn told me that this is part of a trend toward younger audiences liking brands less due to ad repetition.“Only one in four claim that seeing an ad multiple times helps them remember what is being advertised,” Bohn told me.Nearly half of millennials (48 percent) prefer shorter videos compared to 34 percent of Gen Z, who are mostly interested in better music.The report also delivered insights on how this demographic is using social media. Across both groups, 42 percent spent more time on social media this year over last year. And Stories on all platforms are getting a lot of play. A whopping 70 percent of Gen Z regularly watched Stories on Snapchat and Instagram.The differences between the groups are also evident in the platforms they use:And laughter seems to be the best medicine, with 56 percent of Gen Z females favoring humor over celebrity-focused videos (only 17 percent).Bohn told me that “brands that present ads with style that resonates have a greater chance of being liked by young consumers.”“Social users are bombarded with content, and it’s harder than ever for advertisers to capture attention, particularly the attention of GenZ,” Bohn said. “This report has implications for marketers looking to connect with younger audiences. Demographics and the celebrity factor also influence likability, but sense of style is the leading factor.”Bohn said that though younger people are less interested in celebrity tie-ins, advertisers should still include them in their media mix.“What we glean from these findings is that younger consumers respond better to ads that offer a reflection of themselves, or their aspirational selves,” Boh said. “Celebrity status seems to be less influential than personal style but certainly nothing to dismiss, especially when trying to reach GenZ.”The post Report: Traditional methods of personalization don’t work for millennials and Gen Z appeared first on Marketing Land.From our sponsors: Report: Traditional methods of personalization don’t work for millennials and Gen Zlast_img read more

U.S. Trying to Extradite Brit for Sharing Links

first_imgRelated Posts Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting Tags:#Government#web fruzsina eordoghcenter_img A Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai… Richard O’Dwyer and Jimmy WalesThe United States government is currently trying to extradite a 24-year-old British citizen, Richard O’Dwyer, to the U.S. for creating a site that linked to – but never hosted – online videos. It’s another example of the federal government and Hollywood’s antiquated sharing-equals-piracy mentality and their ongoing efforts to criminalize the same kind of activity that happens on Google, Facebook and Twitter every day. The case is so outlandish that Wikipedia founder Jimmy Wales and various politicians and celebrities are stepping in to defend O’Dwyer.In 2007 when O’Dwyer was 19, he created, a small website frequented mostly by Brits which acted as a crowd-sourced search engine for film, documentary and TV show content found on the Web. Users would post links to the content, some of which was illegally uploaded to the Internet, but the site itself did not host any videos; it was more of a forum like Reddit than a video platform like YouTube.When sent a takedown notice for linking to copyrighted material over the three years the site was active, O’Dwyer said he deleted the offending post. That wasn’t good enough because in 2010, when O’Dwyer was 22, he was arrested in his Sheffield Hallam University dorm room by two local police officers, and two Immigration and Customs agents from the United States. O’Dwyer was charged with copyright infringement and conspiracy to commit copyright infringement.Download the U.S. government’s court filing against Richard O’Dwyer and U.S. deemed the $220,000 O’Dwyer made from advertising revenue on TVShack illegal and is currently trying to extradite him to the U.S., where he could receive a sentence of 10 years in a maximum security prison. In comparison, O’Dwyer’s case was investigated by British authorities and dropped, as linking to content is not illegal in the U.K. and is considered protected by free speech.In an op-ed in The Guardian, Wikipedia founder Wales called O’Dwyer the “human face” in the battle of big content producers versus the general public. Unfortunately, O’Dwyer is the example Hollywood seeks to make in its fight against online piracy, even if its chosen example didn’t pirate any content in the first place.Visiting today reveals the domain has been seized by the U.S., and the site now automatically redirects to an anti-pirating spot emphasizing lost jobs due to content piracy. However, the allegory in the YouTube video – of a man giving away DVDs for free on the street – doesn’t fit O’Dwyer’s alleged crime: While O’Dwyer’s website revealed the location of content which may or may not have been uploaded illegally, he didn’t actually hand out pirated content to users for free.This fact has not been lost on the #SaveRichard campaign, an online campaign seeking to stop O’Dwyer’s extradition to the U.S. started by O’Dwyer’s mother Julia, a nurse to terminally ill children. Wales threw his support behind the campaign on June 24, in the form of an Op-Ed urging readers to sign a petition, which at press time had 170,000 signatures.   The reason for O’Dwyer’s persecution over Google’s, Twitter’s or Facebook’s for sharing copyrighted content is unclear. Why the U.S. seeks to try him across the Atlantic, despite O’Dwyer living and engaging in an alleged criminal offense in the U.K., is also unclear. O’Dwyer’s lawyers have maintained the U.S. has no jurisdiction in the U.K.  Joining Wales in supporting the #SaveRichard campaign is the U.K. newspaper The Guardian, which called the whole thing “absurd”; Irish comedian and writer Graham Linehan, who called the case “blood boiling” on Twitter; British Labor Party politician Keith Vaz; Liberal Democrat president Tim Farron, who called the affair “ludicrous”; and Labor MP Tom Watson, among others.As U.K. resident Mrs Fong pointed out on Twitter in the wee hours of June 25, “If we go down this road, we could in theory extradite almost every U.K. citizen for laws broken in other countries around the world.” 8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Marketlast_img read more

Internet Pranksters Hijack Walmart’s Facebook Campaign

first_imgWhy Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… A Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai… Tags:#web#Web Culture Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting fruzsina eordoghcenter_img Related Posts Walmart’s Facebook campaign for Energy Sheets, a caffeinated equivalent to Listerine strips, promises to send rapper Pitbull to the Walmart store with the most likes on Facebook. But what happens if the Walmart store with the most likes is on a tiny Alaskan island, accessible only by plane or ferry?  The campaign to send American rapper Pitbull to the Alaskan island Kodiak was hatched by David Thorpe and Jon Hendren, two writers of the comedic Internet culture website Something Awful, on June 29.“Pitbull is having a contest where he’ll visit the local Walmart that gets the most FB Likes. @fart and I are sending him to Kodiak, Alaska,” wrote Thorpe on Twitter. Thorpe’s tweet was shared more than 700 times before being posted on Reddit, where it shot to the front page and kicked off a frenzy of Facebook likes. To date, more than 62,000 people have liked the Facebook page for Walmart store 2711 in Kodiak, Ala., population 6,130, according to the 2010 census. Even though the campaign to send Pitbull to Kodiak started as a joke by writers known for making fun of everything – Thorpe is encouraging his fans to use the hashtag #exilepitbull – Kodiak Walmart employees have embraced the prank and very much want Pitbull to visit them.“We’d love to have Pitbull visit us. The weather is better here this time of year anyway,” wrote a Walmart Kodiak employee on a group shot of the staff holding a Pitbull banner on their Facebook page. “Thanks for your support – did you know that Kodiak is actually a real fun town! It’s just that some of our ‘party animals’ happen to be bears, moose, seals, eagles and fish” reads another employee comment. (The Kodiak Walmart sells hunting supplies, bear repellent and snow shoes.) Pitbull, on the other hand, doesn’t seem nearly as thrilled about visiting the tiny frozen island, rather, he’s expressed a desire to go to Miami instead with a #keeppitbull305 hashtag. (That Walmart store only has 909 likes.) The rapper has been a good sport throughout the whole thing though, tweeting at Thorpe to join him in Alaska if he does end up there. Jon Hendren admitted to ReadWriteWeb he wasn’t expecting this kind of community response, saying “I think we joked that it might get a few thousand if we’re really lucky, and maybe [W]almart’s marketing people would hold an emergency meeting or something, tops.” As for all the media attention, from NPR, CNN, to Mashable, Hendren called it “scary,” before adding “I’m about 20% sure that if Dave [Thorpe] goes along to Alaska, he will be eaten by a bear or hit with an errant tranq dart.” 8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Marketlast_img read more

German Student Defies Google Cease-and-Desist with 1 Million Signatures

Philip Matesanz, the site’s 21-year-old owner, has collected 1.2 million signatures in protest against the action. Will his petition move the search giant?Matesanz, a German citizen, lodged the petition through last month after Google sent him a cease-and-desist order claiming that violated YouTube’s terms of service. Since then, Matesanz has collected 1.2 million signatures from all over the world, making his petition one of’s five most-signed petitions. (The speed with which Matesanz gathered the  signatures isn’t so surprising, considering that his site gets 1.3 million visits a day on average.) Matesanz plans to deliver the signatures in person.Matesanz and his lawyers argue that, since does not use YouTube’s application programming interface, it does not violate YouTube’s terms of service. In addition, the petition cites a legal precedent for the kinds of copies makes and distributes. YouTube is like a broadcaster, it maintains, and “for decades people were allowed to take a private copy of a public broadcast,” recording songs off the air for their own use.Will Google listen to Matesanz and his million supporters? Not likely. Google has to answer to major corporations such as Viacom, which do not appreciate unauthorized copying of their material, especially through the Internet.  Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hostinglast_img read more

12 Things to Know about Cybersecurity Now

first_imgFollow the Puck Related Posts Nirnay Butle Protection is a must.Frankly, this one is a given. You need to protect everything that contains your data; your device, your accounts, your email service, EVERYTHING! Installing a good anti-virus from a trusted source for your device paces up your email safety. Ensure good passwords to secure your accounts –and don’t leave these on your phone.Spams are scams. Don’t fall for them.Do not ever share any information regarding you on insecure links. These may or may not be leading from spam messages and emails — just don’t give information on these sites — ever. Don’t fall for the various traps they lay. Remember the ‘s’ in the URL that we talked about earlier. Unauthorised linksEver noticed how some internet links have https while some only have HTTP in their URL? The difference here is that the former indicates a more secure URL compared to the latter. Entering sensitive information like your bank or personal details on a site with HTTP in the URL can cause your data to be easily stolen.Most people have known this fact for years — but note that some of the “http” is sneaking back onto the internet without any of us paying attention.Spam MessagesHow often do we get messages and emails telling us we won a jackpot of millions that’s just a few clicks away? This one is easy, and most are aware — but there are other spam message traps. Don’t let your information be sold on unauthorized sites for mere pennies to be used by someone who means to cause you harm.ApplicationsEver wondered why most apps ask for so many permissions to run smoothly? Well, you might want to consider before pressing “yes” next time. Look at the studies that have been conducted. According to most studies — the stats line up — around 90% Android applications and nearly 40% IOS applications collect as well as sell the data they gain due to these permissions.Weak Privacy PrecautionsAny device lacking proper protection is more prone to malware and other similar data threats. Not installing updates of apps on time leaves your device more prone to damage through malware. Generally, outdated devices are targeted first. Not just that, a lack of email protection can also cause a more significant number of spam messages targeting you.WHAT CYBER THREATENS YOU?Nice pun, right?Well, back to the point.Here are a few threats to your data in the cyber world. Though the list doesn’t contain all the threats, the major ones you need to look out for have been mentioned. Stay updated and Backed-Up.Remember to keep all your applications as well as your device updated to the current version of the specific device or application. These updates often include better ways to ensure the security of your data, making you less prone to losing it. Also, get a backup for your data to help you in case you ever lose it to any of the threats. Put it on your calendar — back-up all of your information on the first Sunday of every month — or the third Thursday every month. Just back-up.

Whether you are a techie or not, there’s a fair chance that your life is highly reliant on the internet and its wonders. Your social media accounts are likely humming, and you know your way around the IoT devices you use. All of these devices connect you to the cyber world in one way or another. Here are 12 things to know about cybersecurity.And when you are sharing so much of your data online daily, you might as well care about your cybersecurity. If you’ve always thought cybersecurity is something only big companies need to care about — change your mind, now.Cybersecurity is as critical on a personal level, as it is on a company’s level. Besides, there’s hardly any job or profession, that is not based on technology. With jobs or a career in mind, you need to know what threatens your security online and what you can do to keep your data secure.HOW ARE YOU LOSING YOUR DATA?To understand how to secure your data, first understand the pathways through which you are losing your data. Data is often lost due to your lack of knowledge and prevention on your part. Take preventive care now so that your data will not be lost.center_img AI: How it’s Impacting Surveillance Data Storage Don’t permit.Think before permitting any application to access your files and other sensitive information. Yes — this is how malware enters devices in more than 90% cases. Also, many many apps sell your data. So, don’t put your data at stake for momentary ease.Think before you post.Posting every speck of information about your life is not a rule. And talk about danger to children!!! Stop telling me everything about your kid. It’s dangerous. Even though it’s nice to share your life’s happiness online with your friends — stop yourself from being addicted to sharing on social media platforms. The social media platforms are massive and they are collecting and recording every ounce of your data.  Your data can easily be stolen, and you can be monitored.A CONCRETE SOLUTIONThere is not a complete cure to ensure your cybersecurity. There is but one way for you to ensure that your data is neither misused or stolen.Think about getting a piece of the internet for your own by owning your data and storing your data in your own space that is accessible to you and you only. This way it can’t be accessed, stolen or misused by anyone else. Everyone can get a digital home for themselves — and this might be what we all eventually have to do. Look for the how-to — on a secure site — online.CLOSINGCybersecurity is something that affects people on both individuals as well as mass level. Take the time to gain, at least, basic knowledge about security. Help your children, parents, and grandparents — they are very vulnerable. Take time to ensure your own security in the cyber world.As we are more and more reliant on technology in our world each day — we need to take precautions and look for stronger solutions to ensure cybersecurity for everyone. Tags:#cyber security#data protection#hacking#privacy What it Takes to Build a Highly Secure FinTech … Malware and RansomwareBoth are essentially the same, but they differ slightly.Malware is usually a malicious software program that usually enters the device through third-party apps, and the malware is hosted on that site. Once in your device, it can gain unauthorized access to your data, perform forced actions, and even harm and clear your data. Malware includes worms, trojan horses, viruses, etc.Ransomware is essentially a Malware that asks you for money to access your own data threatening its loss.PhishingThose emails and messages are asking you to claim your jackpot or validate an account you never made, all these lead to phishing. Validating accounts you have made — the same thing applies. Is someone asking you to confirm your health care? Call them back — or get on a secure site separately. But don’t validate on a request email or call.What happens is that once you click the link on these messages, you are directed to a seemingly official site. These ask you to enter sensitive information like your bank account details, passwords, etc. to update or validate your account. Don’t. Don’t enter a contest or take part in any “easy money making” contest.Once you enter this information, it falls into the prying hands to misuse as they please. These target people through spams.Hacking and SpywareHacking is when someone or something gains unauthorized access to your data, gaining access to all your information, including your private information, with the goal in mind to cause damage to you. Data can be sold or misused. Your data can be injected with harmful files or apps on any of your devices. Your social media accounts are always at stake of hacking or a breach, which can cause you a lot of data loss.Spyware refers to a program that is often installed without consent with a free download file. It collects information, everything including contact list, browser history, settings, device version, and sends to third parties. It can also alter the way your device runs or uncontrollable pop-up ads or open random windows on the browser.PREVENTION IS BETTER THAN CUREThere are no strict enough laws to protect your privacy online. There is no way you can save your data once its gone. Protecting your data before we lose it, is the best we can do. Here are a few preventions I suggest you take care of.
