Jay-Z Compiling New Prince Album For Tidal

first_imgJay-Z is currently working on compiling a new full-length Prince album featuring songs that have previously been unreleased to the public, reports Pitchfork. Due out in 2019, the album will first be released on Tidal, the streaming service which was acquired by Jay-Z in 2015, with the album being streamed exclusively on Tidal for two weeks before making its way to other major streaming services.As Jay-Z noted about this upcoming collaboration with the Prince estate,Our only goal is to share Prince’s music with his fans as he wanted. … After thoughtful and honest conversation with him, he chose TIDAL as his partner for HITnRUN Phase One [in 2015] and HITnRUN Phase Two [in 2016], and we will continue to respect and honor Prince’s enduring legacy and wishes with this new collection.Back in 2016, Prince’s estate filed a lawsuit against Jay-Z’s Roc Nation regarding Tidal’s claim that it had exclusive streaming rights to Prince’s music. For several years, Prince’s music was available exclusively on Tidal, but in 2017, The Purple One’s music came to other streaming services like Spotify and Apple Music. With the ongoing dispute resolved and a new deal in place with Tidal and the Prince estate, Jay-Z has gotten the green light to move forward with the new album—however, the press release notes that Tidal “does not involve any of Prince’s music catalogue that is subject to prior agreements with Warner Brothers Records.”Jay-Z and Tidal’s announcement of their 2019 Prince album comes on the heels of the Prince estate’s announcement that another album of previously unreleased Prince cuts is due out in fall of this year.[H/T Pitchfork]last_img read more

Liberia to arrive less than 24 hours before Afcon tie

first_imgLiberia appear to have resolved their travel issues ahead of their Africa Cup of Nations match with Nigeria on Saturday, but will only arrive in Calabar on Friday evening.There had been fears earlier that the match may have to be delayed as the flight carrying the Liberian delegation was refused permission to land in Nigeria.Liberia’s squad were due to arrive in Nigeria on Thursday but their aircraft remained stranded in Ghana, where they have been based.A spokesman for the Liberia Football Association (LFA), Henry Flomo, said: “We hope to leave our base at 1530 GMT to join up with the technical delegation, who are flying in from Monrovia.“We will then travel together on a charter flight to Calabar.“We expect to arrive in Calabar very late tonight and hope to have a chance to train on the pitch very early tomorrow morning.” This is hardly ideal preparation for Liberia, with the tie level at 2-2.Flomo’s comments will only further cloud this confusing tale after the president of the LFA, Musa Bility, told the BBC on Thursday: “Unfortunately, as of four o’clock, the aircraft still had not received landing confirmation from the Nigeria airport authority.“We do not know why there has been a delay. Our aircraft people said they could not fly after four o’clock because the airport at Calabar closes early.”Had the flight been granted clearance on Thursday, it is unlikely that the Liberia delegation would have arrived together, as Nigeria were expecting. The squad has been based in Ghana, whilst the technical delegation remained back in Monrovia.The Nigeria Football Federation (NFF), through their head of international competition, Bola Oyeyode, issued the following statement at lunch-time on Friday: “As of Friday morning, the NFF was still expecting the 125-member Liberian delegation, as against information from the Liberia Football Association that the team would land in Calabar by 7.30pm on Thursday.“We’re still expecting them to advise us on their new arrival time. They got in touch with us on Thursday night to say that they had a problem with the aircraft they wanted to charter and that they would find their way into Nigeria on Friday.“We are still expecting them for the game on Saturday.”last_img read more

Shrewsbury Firm Goes Mano-A-Mano With Germs

first_imgBy John Sorce |SHREWSBURY – During the worst flu season in recent memory, a borough company is offering a product featuring antimicrobial technology that it hopes can change the way people deal with germs.The product, Zoono, acts like an “invisible glove,” leaving behind a protective barrier when it dries. It is especially useful as a hand sanitizer. It lasts up to 24 hours on the skin and 30 days on a hard surface, according to the company.“The way I like to look at this is we are changing the world one hand at a time,” said Thomas French, president and CEO of Zoono USA, headquartered in the Revmont Park complex at 1151 Broad St. The five-person office oversees U.S. distribution of the product manufactured in South Carolina and packaged in Monroe.When Zoono is applied to surfaces and dries, the micro-thin coating firmly bonds to the surface.The company likens it to putting down a layer of a million “pins” that attach to the surface and attract, puncture and either kill or inactivate germs on impact. The process is called “lysis” but the company says it can be understood like a “pin popping a balloon.”“By putting a barrier between you and germs, either on surfaces or on hands, you’ve materially reduced what is the cycle of infection of sharing germs,” French said, explaining the barrier eliminates the possibility of bacteria building up an immunity, like so-called “super bugs.”French, a resident of Rumson with a background in sales and marketing, first got involved with Zoono two years ago when local investors approached him with the idea of launching the New Zealand product in the U.S. He was skeptical at first, but the idea really grew on him. “I didn’t know anything about chemistry when they asked me but the more I looked at their idea… you can tell how excited I am about hand sanitizer,” French said. “It is truly that exciting to me even now, two years later.”In order for a hand sanitizer to be compliant with the Food and Drug Administration, it needs to kill 99.9 percent of germs in 60 seconds and must include either ethyl alcohol, isopropyl alcohol, or benzalkonium chloride. Zoono uses the latter, because it does not require alcohol and it dissolves in water, French said. It is safe for people, pets and plants, according to the company.Zoono products are sold online and in some local pharmacies. A hand sanitizer twin-set costs $9.99.“The way an alcohol sanitizer works is it will dehydrate the germ,” French said. “It extracts all of the water from the cell that is the germ and it shrivels up and can no longer function. It kills the germ by dehydrating it, but that’s only good as long as the alcohol is still wet on your hand, which is a matter of seconds, then it goes away. Your hands may be germ-free at that point, but as soon as the alcohol dries and you touch the next thing, you’ve started the process of recontamination.”Zoono is going after the $1.2 billion U.S. disinfectant market. Although focused primarily on their hand sanitizer, the company also produces various other products, including an aerosol to contain odor-causing germs, wound cleanser and acne medication, and surface products that can be sprayed on tables, walls and devices. A 20-item Zoono product line is available for purchase on Amazon.com, ranging from $9.99 for a set of two 50 ml GermFree24 foam hand sanitizers to $74.99 for the GermFree24 1000 ml two-pack hand sanitizer plus touch-free dispenser.“If you get a scrape or something, you spray this on there,” French said about the GermFree24 nonstinging wound cleansers, which are sold as a set of two for $9.99 on Amazon. “It will kill the germs, but it will also set up this barrier so that more germs won’t get onto that broken skin.”The product is also sold online at Walmart.com and CVS, under the co-branded name CVS Health Advanced Antiseptic. Locally, it can be purchased at Rumson Pharmacy, Little Silver Family Pharmacy and Red Bank Family Pharmacy.One place you might be surprised to find Zoono is the Shrewsbury Car Wash.“They love the product because the aerosol is a beautiful way of treating the car,” said French. Detailers have discovered that if they spray the product and blast the air conditioning, it gets rid of bad odors, like spilled milk. “It actually kills the germs that cause the odor, and it doesn’t have an odor. It just smells fresh and clean, instead of piney or ocean breezy,” French said.He said it also works on moldy basements, kitchen odors, stinky cleats and goalie gloves. With three boys who play lacrosse, French said he can verify this claim from personal experience.This article was first published in the Feb. 8-15, 2018 print edition of The Two River Times.last_img read more

Apple Updates FCPX, Attempts to Win Back Pro User Base

first_imgApple continues to update their Final Cut Pro X video editing application, with the 10.0.8 adding new features and addressing performance issues.Video editors that cried two years ago that “Apple isn’t dedicated to the pro user!” after the release of FCPX, may have to rethink their position. Since its release it has received continuous updates to improve performance, as well as add new (and missing features) that make it more usable for pro video editing. The recent FCPX 10.0.8 update continues to improve the app and offer more features for the professional user (list of new features with 10.0.8 update below).A recent LA Times article stated that Apple is now planning to squarely target their professional userbase, including video editors that they may have initially lost with the release of Final Cut Pro X.  The new “FCPX In Action” marketing series will focus on professional video editors and producers that are employing a FCPX workflow with success.  It will be interesting to see if this marketing push, coupled with the ongoing app updates, is enough to sway video editors that Apple is in fact committed to their pro userbase.

AP Photo/Jessica Hill, File)NEW YORK — Bill Laimbeer found himself at a crossroad.His contract with the New York Liberty was up and he wasn’t sure if he wanted to stay or move on. He had spent the last few years grooming Katie Smith to be the team’s next head coach and felt the time was right for her to take over the team, which lost in the second round of the playoffs for the second consecutive year.ADVERTISEMENT “While other teams are restocking their cupboards, we have to order things from scratch like basketballs, athletic tape, nearly everything,” Laimbeer said.This will be the first professional basketball team in Las Vegas, which has become a coveted target for sports franchises over the past few years.The expansion Vegas Golden Knights began their first NHL season this month. In March, the NFL formally approved the Oakland Raiders’ relocation to Las Vegas by the 2020 season to occupy a proposed new stadium on the Las Vegas Strip, although the deal wasn’t approved until casino mogul Sheldon Adelson pulled out of the financing plan.The Golden Knights play at MGM’s T-Mobile Arena, but the casino doesn’t own the team.“This is the first pro sports team that MGM resorts owns and it’s a great alignment frankly with the DNA of our company,” said Lilian Tomovich, MGM’s chief experience and marketing officer.Laimbeer inherits a team that finished last for the second straight year. San Antonio has a talented young nucleus with Kayla McBride, Moriah Jefferson and Kelsey Plum. The team also has the top chance to get the No. 1 pick in next year’s draft.“They need a change of culture,” Laimbeer said. “Any time you get a team that’s beat down record-wise, you have to have a catalyst for a change. This is a tremendous catalyst. Going to an exciting venue and situation where there’s resources. I have been successful creating a team that can compete. We can break out of this thing.”Laimbeer also thinks being in Las Vegas will be attractive to free agents.“Players will want to come here,” he said. “All the signs point to a great opportunity. We have to pick up the pieces and make it happen.”This is the second move for the franchise. It came to San Antonio from Utah in 2003. Led by Becky Hammon, the Stars reached the WNBA Finals in 2008.

5 Puzzles a Marketing CSI Must Solve to Improve Conversion

first_imgEvery second of every day websites are drawing qualified traffic that’s not converting to leads and customers.And that’s not the only crime being committed! Companies are not setting goals, they are not benchmarking results and often have no basis to track improvement in their marketing over time.These are all crimes and I call on all internet marketing CSIs (crime scene investigators) to use their deductive reasoning to solve these five puzzles for improved conversion and business success:1. HOW – How did visitors learn about your site?It is critical to know how visitors are learning about your site.  Track referring sites for all your visitors.  You should identify which sites (and types of sites) are sending you the most visitors and visitors that convert to leads.  It’s amazing what a little focus on the best sources can do to improve your conversion rates.2. WHO – Who are your visitors (and leads and customers)?Do you know the kinds of visitors (personas) who are most interested in your products and services?  Qualifying questions on forms can capture explicit information about your visitors and implicit clues such as site visits, downloads, and content viewed can tell you a lot about the DNA of your ideal audience.  Use targeted marketing campaigns to home in on suspects who make ideal customers for your business.3. WHAT – What content interests your visitors?Do you know what content or keywords are attracting visitors to your site?  Which lead generation offers get the most downloads? Track the performance of all your content.  You can use some clues to optimize or create new content that will attract more visitors and convert more of them into leads. 4. WHICH – Which are your most effective marketing channels?Is your site a search traffic magnet because your pages rank high for a multitude of keywords?  Perhaps your email campaigns generate fewer visitors but are more influential in converting your audience into customers.  Figure out which of your channels work best so you can use them strategically to generate more traffic (prospects) and convert more customers.5. WHY – Why do your visitors become customers, or not?This is toughest (and most subjective) puzzle to solve.  There are a multitude of reasons customers buy: they need your product, they really liked your sales rep, or maybe you came highly recommended.  Ask your customers after every win and document it.  More importantly, in the event of a lost deal ask the prospect why.  Focus on your strengths and work on filling up the gap to ensure a higher win rate. Are you a marketing CSI facing similar challenging business puzzles? Please share your thoughts in the comments.Photo Credit: Sashafatcat Webinar: Website RedesignLearn how to redesign your website to improve your site conversion and marketing results!Download the free webinar to learn how to turn your website into an internet marketing machine.

Transformation Secrets of a Online Marketing Agency #MTW

first_img 1. Compliment your value prop’s big picture. 3. Educate your customers on where they need to go. Inbound Marketing LyntonWeb sensed a change in web marketing and made sure their customers sensed it too. Making education part of your process will help your customers know what they need, and have you in the earliest stages of their decision-making process. The LyntonWeb team started practicing inbound marketing for their clients and saw the benefits and results first hand in a very short time period. Websites needed steady content creation, not just slick layouts, to truly be productive from a traffic and lead generation perspective. The design work was still was their sweet spot, but it now served as a springboard for monthly retainers built around measurable, results-driven inbound marketing services. Says Daniel, “We started designing landing pages and offering other discreet services, but now we’ve moved into managed services. Evolving the business from projects to retainers would not have been possible without the core services of inbound marketing.” Since shifting his sales focus to inbound marketing, Daniel and his team have signed up over a hundred customers for web design, inbound marketing, and custom development services on the HubSpot platform. They have also benefited from recommendations within a strong HubSpot user community, gaining custom project requests ranging from content creation to custom coding. They have formed strategic partnerships with other marketing agencies and inbound marketing consultants delivering value-added services. They hit one million in sales in 2010 thanks in large part to their wide range of inbound marketing and web services. This year they expect to break new company records for sales and revenue. The marketing dollars clients typically set aside for outbound tactics like mass mailings and cold calling were getting scrapped in favor of online activities. Companies were beginning to see that content marketing, social media outreach and online lead generation could yield a high ROI. Blogs, for instance, were now more than just a place to share company news. They were a content vehicle critical to improving search rankings, traffic and gaining inbound links. His clients had a need for these new services, and he saw blogging, along with other inbound marketing services (as they were becoming known), as tactics that required constant effort and a way to build a recurring revenue model on top of other web services. Providing Ongoing Value and Services to Clients A Bright Future for Inbound Agencies Originally published Apr 8, 2011 12:11:00 PM, updated July 08 2013 Topics:center_img LyntonWeb started out building websites back when they were little more than onine business cards. As the concept of websites changed, so did their service offerings. They stayed true to their value proposition, while broadening the scope of what they do best. LyntonWeb was in the business of making websites better – both visually with design, and functionally with custom development. Everything was project-based, and business wasn’t always steady as projects came and went. In order to stabilize and grow the business, LyntonWeb had to find additional opportunities that could become sources of continuous revenue. Retainer based marketing services were just the solution. LyntonWeb has had tremendous luck turning projects into retainers, mainly because of the level of service and expertise they display in the initial engagement. Over-deliver when you can, and use the “capital” you earn to suggest a relationship that keeps you in the picture permanently long-term. When Daniel Lynton founded his web design company, LyntonWeb, in 1999, his mission was simply to build websites for his clients. At that time, he was the owner and founder, head of business development, designer, developer, and account manager for all projects. With his attention being pulled in so many different directions, finding time to think strategically about how he could grow the business was hard to do, but needed. Ten years later, in 2009, he began to notice a shift in the way companies were spending their marketing dollars. He saw an opportunity to adapt to the future of online marketing and transform his business. A Business Model Shift from Project to Retainer Selling As an agency or marketing services company, what value-add services do you provide to your clients on an on-going basis?  As a marketer, when you need content and online marketing support, how do you search for agency partners and by what criteria do you qualify them? Once just a virtual team of web professionals, LyntonWeb now occupies a spacious new office in downtown Houston. Daniel has grown a sales and account management team to support strong client relationships – a move that allowed him to focus on business development and growth strategy. Key Business Takeaways: 2.
