Viacom (NASDAQ: VIAB, VIA) today announced the acquisition of Seinfeld from Sony Pictures Television, in a deal that features the exclusive cable rights for all 180 episodes of the iconic series.

An Emmy and Golden Globe-winner for Best Comedy Series, Seinfeld is one of the most popular, most award-winning and longest-running comedy series of all time. Jerry Seinfeld stars as a stand-up comedian whose life in New York City is made even more chaotic by his quirky group of friends who join him in wrestling with life’s most perplexing, yet often trivial questions. Often described as “a show about nothing,” Seinfeld mines the humor in life’s mundane situations like waiting in line, searching for a lost item, or the trials and tribulations of dating. Co-starring are Julia Louis-Dreyfus as Jerry’s ex-girlfriend and current platonic pal, Elaine Benes; Jason Alexander as George Costanza, Jerry’s neurotic hard-luck best friend; and Michael Richards as Jerry’s eccentric neighbor, Kramer.

Cable ONE Business Brings 2 Gig Symmetrical Fiber Internet Service to Columbus

Posted by fidest press agency su sabato, 27 ottobre 2018

Businesses in Columbus soon will enjoy up to 2 gigabits per second of symmetrical internet speed with the launch of Cable ONE Business’ new service, Piranha Fiber – Ferociously Fast Internet. This comes five months after the launch of Piranha Fiber in Biloxi and a little over a year since the company announced plans to expand its fiber optic services for small- and medium-sized businesses into Mississippi markets.The company is finalizing construction plans for its newest fiber-optic technology, which will offer businesses both internet and telephone services. Plans indicate continual expansion into additional rural Mississippi communities for the foreseeable future. The new internet and phone services are delivered over a Passive Optical Network (PON), which combines the most favorable attributes from coax and fiber. Benefits include service delivered over an extremely reliable fiber-based architecture and shared bandwidth, which allows Cable ONE Business to spread its infrastructure costs over a broader customer base and offer the service at a price that’s affordable for most small businesses.Unlike dedicated fiber internet service – which is often unattainable for small and mid-sized businesses due to construction costs and the required dedicated connection to our network – PON is a shared service, delivering superior capacity.Several Piranha Fiber internet plans are available, beginning with 50 megabits per second and scaling to 2 gigabits per second. Pricing starts as low as $99.95/mo. when bundled with business telephone service for three years.“Piranha Fiber is the most reliable business internet service available today,” Boone said. “Customers can expect maximum uptime with minimal delays for a truly unique online experience.”For today’s businesses, a fast, reliable internet connection has moved from being a convenience to a critical component of success. Businesses rely on their internet connection to run integral processes and programs, including e-mail, e-commerce, cloud-based applications, video conferencing and more.“Fast, reliable internet access is a productivity-enhancing factor,” Boone said. “It allows businesses to increase collaboration, send and share larger files more quickly, and take advantage of more cloud-based applications in order to achieve operational efficiencies, greater productivity and growth.”Piranha Fiber is currently available in a number of Cable ONE markets outside of Mississippi, including Boise, Idaho; Fargo, North Dakota; Norfolk, Nebraska; Odessa, Texas: and Rio Rancho, New Mexico.

WWF says no to tiger protection

Posted by fidest press agency su venerdì, 30 settembre 2011

A cable published by Wikileaks from the US embassy in Jakarta has demonstrated one thing: WWF cares more about blacklisting companies than saving animals.
The cable revolves around a tiger conservation program that the US-based Wildlife Conservation Society (WCS) had initially planned to undertake with the Indonesian forestry and paper producer, Asia Pulp and Paper (APP). WCS had planned to train APP staff in assessing tiger populations and undertaking best management practices for conserving tiger populations. According to the cable, APP was responsible for 1.2 million hectares of forest land. But WWF effectively told WCS to walk away from the agreement, despite the protestations of WCS staff, who believed that abandoning the project would have a negative impact on tiger populations. But why would WCS agree to WWF’s demands? Conservation, like anything else, requires large sums of money. WWF is the world’s largest environmental organization. It often partners with WCS, and WWF is in control of the purse strings more often than not. WWF and APP originally commenced joint work on APP’s forestry concessions in 2003. The two groups set out a sustainability action plan with an agreed set of targets. But late in 2003 the agreement fell apart. According to the cable, the falling out was over methodologies and projections. Since then, WWF has lobbied hard against APP, targeting both its customers and the press. WWF went one step further in 2007, lobbying FSC to alter to its rules so that APP could no longer use its certification standard. An analysis of the WWF strategy indicates that this was less about APP changing its habits than a concerted effort to capture the supply chain for paper products. Indonesia has emerged as one of the world’s most competitive large paper producers. The largest Indonesian paper producer is APP. FSC’s ‘dropping’ of APP meant that FSC supporters – such as Greenpeace – could shut APP out of the supply chain simply by lobbying for companies to use Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) paper. This supply chain strategy may have some success in parts of the developed world, where the demand for ‘Green’ products is high. An incarnation of this is currently being seen in Australia, with the emergence of a Greenpeace-backed group called ‘Markets for Change’ (MFC). MFC’s current ambition is to pressure Australia’s largest retailers to cease buying products made from native Australian hardwoods. Such a strategy is less likely to have less success in places like China or India, where habitat conservation is a luxury few companies and consumers are willing to pay for. Yet it is in these markets where growth is occurring. Demand for paper products has flat lined in the Western world. Excess capacity is being shut down. Demand for products without Western sustainability standards will continue to grow in emerging markets. The likely result for an organization like WWF is that it will have difficulty curbing demand for low-cost product and these markets; at the same time, it will have walked away from a legitimate and well-informed attempt to conserve tiger populations.
