Google Fixes Cheeseburger Emoji for Android 81

first_img Study: People Who Use Emojis Have More Sex (Kinda)’Emoji House’ Feud Turns Calif. Neighborhood Pink With Rage Stay on target Ahh, that’s better.Google has updated its hamburger emoji following Internet outrage over the tech titan’s upside-down sandwich.Late last month, media analyst Thomas Baekdal pointed out the long-time mistake: While Apple takes a traditional approach (tomato and cheese atop the patty), Google uses melted Muenster to cushion the meat at the base.So egregious was Google’s error that CEO Sundar Pichai stepped in, promising to “drop everything” to address the cheeseburger issue.Now I’d eat that (via Google/Emojipedia)And thanks to his vigilance, the forthcoming Android 8.1 release will include a more edible-looking emoji, with cheese layered on top of the patty.The hamburger emoji (also known as “burger” and “cheeseburger”) was approved as part of Unicode 6.0 in 2010, and added to Emoji 1.0 in 2015. Individual companies can decide how they want to render each pictograph.Microsoft, Facebook, and Twitter get it right with their Five Guys approach: lettuce, tomato, cheese, and patty, sandwiched between two buns. (Served with an abundance of salted fries and a whipped cream-topped milkshake.)Everyone seems to have their own take on the cheeseburger emoji; like snowflakes, no two burger emoticons are the same.Not all cheeseburgers are created equal (via Emojipedia)Samsung takes a page from Google’s misguided playbook, placing the cheese on top of the lettuce and sending chills down the spine. The bold HTC includes two patties, allowing for optimum separation of cheese and lettuce (though the top-to-bottom-bun ratio is all sorts of off).Ever send a cheeseburger emoji in WhatsApp? The intricate image includes what looks like mayonnaise and ketchup spread over cheese, with a salad underneath the meat.According to Emojipedia, which first reported the change, other impending emoji updates include “beer” and “beers,” soon to feature a full stein instead of a half-poured draught; as well as “cheese,” which corrects a bug that places a line through holes on the edge of the wedge.(via Google/Emojipedia)(via Google/Emojipedia)(via Google/Emojipedia)These adjustments are part of a beta update, and, as Emojipedia pointed out, may change before the public release expected later this year. But that’s unlikely.Here’s to hoping that this digital shift also applies to Google’s kitchen, as well: The Seattle office recently served employees something called an “Android burger”—with a slice of cheese under the patty.last_img read more

WSU Vancouver among campuses with protests in wake of election

first_imgA group of Washington State University Vancouver students and staff joined hands Thursday in a show of post-election unity.Mirroring similar college demonstrations across the country in the wake of President-elect Donald Trump’s victory last week, about 75 people gathered in the center of campus, shouting “Love not hate makes America great” and “No justice, no peace.”“It’s not about contesting the election per se, but about being a beacon of hope, progressive actions and policies,” said Scott Calvert, a 38-year-old anthropology graduate student who helped organize the demonstration.At local colleges, staff are working to address concerns over the results of the contentious 2016 election. WSU Vancouver’s top administrators sent an email campus-wide on Monday urging people to remain civil in a time of uncertainty.“It is important to discuss our differences, and equally important that we do so in ways that express mutual respect,” the email said. “And in doing so, we become a stronger community.”Jose Scott, a 21-year-old junior, is the vice president of college organization Black People United. Scott joined the demonstration to promote a message of love and support among WSU’s students. Scott has been pleased so far by how the WSU community has responded to the election, he said.last_img read more

WRDA 2018 heads to Presidents desk

first_imgThis week the U.S. Senate voted 99-1 to approve America’s Water Infrastructure Act, which includes the Water Resources Development Act (WRDA) of 2018.  WRDA authorizes the programs and projects carried out by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) on locks and dams, dredging and other waterways projects. ASA supports WRDA reauthorization to continue the progress toward updating our inland waterways infrastructure that is vital to the movement of soybeans and appreciates Congress returning to a practice of passing the reauthorization bill every two years.The House passed the WRDA legislation by voice vote in September, so the bill now heads to the White House and the President is expected to sign it into law.The 2018 WRDA is a straightforward reauthorization bill with no new significant policy changes or funding. The annual funding for USACE inland waterways programs is provided through the annual Energy & Water Appropriations bill, which has included increased funding levels since 2014.ASA will heighten focus in the next Congress on efforts to further accelerate completion of the longstanding priority projects on the inland waterways system through the Appropriations process, the bi-annual WRDA in 2020, or a major infrastructure package facilitated by President Trump.last_img read more

Magazine Job Report 2008

first_imgWith today’s struggling economy, magazine publishers are trying to do more with less while their businesses change dramatically—two facts that take their toll on those who work hard to keep these businesses running and thriving. But with these new frontiers that publishers are compelled to embark on come bright spots for those working in—or looking to enter—the industry. New jobs emerge, old jobs become fresh, and opportunities arise for individuals with unique talents and skills.NOTE: CLICK HERE FOR THE PDF VERSION (INCLUDES CHARTS) Here, FOLIO: takes a look at the current state of magazine-industry jobs—at hiring trends, compensation levels, new jobs emerging, the positions and skill sets in highest demand, the jobs becoming obsolete or changing most drastically, recruiting approaches, and everything related to the most vital resource a magazine business has—its staff. From hiring trends to salaries, and from advancement opportunities to the very real threat of outsourcing.Hiring Forecast Just as FOLIO: was putting it’s March issue to bed, Time Inc. announced that it will cut around 100 jobs in the first quarter, affecting positions “across a variety of functions and geographic areas,” according to a Time Inc. spokesperson.It was another stark reminder of the precarious nature of magazine industry employment. In January, McGraw-Hill cut 3 percent of its workforce, or 611 jobs (observers say that move was due more to a volatile subprime market hitting its financial services business and a declining stock price than the performance of its information and media division. However, that’s small comfort if you were one of the 611).Despite the gloomy scenarios, job security was just the third largest job-related concern for respondents to a recent survey of FOLIO: readers conducted last month (for the methodology, see page 34), after a desire for more pay and the number one concern, an ever-increasing workload. While 81 percent of the respondents said they do not fear losing their job within the next year, 31 percent of respondents said their company was downsized in the past year. With rising costs and the threat of recession looming, publishers want to stay as lean as possible. Hiring is likely to be very selective going forward, with some departments that affect the bottom line, like circulation and production, losing staff while others, like sales and online jobs that bring in revenue, gain.In the survey of FOLIO: readers, 53 percent said their company was doing the majority of their hiring in the online department, compared to 24 percent who identified print as receiving the most hires. Similarly, 88 percent of the respondents say their company is emphasizing online for growth, as opposed to 34 percent who said print was the main growth vehicle.Eliot Kaplan, editorial talent director at Hearst, says it’s a “great time to enter the industry,” as job descriptions broaden and employees gain marketable experience well beyond the printed page. But the ability to do so may be getting tougher and tougher, as publishers look to spread the extra work around to current staff instead of new hires. “We’re not adding a lot of bodies, we are doing all this with existing staff,” says Kaplan. Even with print, “We try to get fewer people touching the page without affecting the quality and making it as good as or better than ever,” Kaplan adds.Hearst is not alone in this mentality. “It is more a matter of thinking about how to get things done versus bringing in more people,” says Claudia Malley, publisher of National Geographic. However, this mindset affects some disciplines more than others.“The jobs that are going away are in production,” says Henry Donahue, Discover Media’s CEO. “Now service providers are taking on services to differentiate themselves and you can shift lots of responsibilities from the production department to the vendor.”Donahue adds finance to the list of departments seeing contraction as companies look to cut overhead and cost. On the flip side, Donahue says he did a great deal of hiring in 2007 and expects it to continue in 2008—mostly in online and editorial. “It is mostly an investment in content creation,” he says.Dick Ryan, president and CEO of ZweigWhite, has a similar perspective: “We can’t have enough editors, analysts and research associates on staff because we generate all our own content.” But ZweigWhite is somewhat unique in that 80 percent of its revenue comes from subscription and research report sales. Only two out of the company’s 75 employees are in advertising sales—a burgeoning field for lots of companies today.National Geographic’s Malley expects sales to be a hiring hot spot this year. She says she’d also love to hire a strategic marketing director to focus on creative solutions for clients that move beyond advertorials to be more like “complex units,” with several components like wall maps and pull-out inserts. Ideally, she’d like to see this develop into something like a small agency within the department, organized by categories such as technology, electronics, imaging, and so on.Gary Rubin, chief publishing officer of the Society for Human Resource Management, says his organization has added approximately eight positions to its Web staff alone. “Web is where the future is,” he says, “and we need to be sure we are staffed appropriately.” He expects to do even more Web hiring in 2008.Sales and online project management are the top jobs to be filled at Interweave, a division of Aspire Media, according to Aaron Wilmot, the company’s HR director.Still, some are holding back in 2008, especially in light of economic concerns. “There’s been a downturn in the construction market,” says Ryan. “We will be cautious with respect to hiring at the same pace as last year at this time. We got in front of the curve and had to react as the market turned.”Sylvia Lewis, director of publications at the American Planning Association, says, “Planning keeps on pumping out more pages, but only once in the past seven years have we added more staff.” She says the magazine will soon need more editorial help but doesn’t expect to get funding for a full-time staffer and will probably outsource.NewBay Media is focused on revenue people. “We’re looking for individuals who can generate revenue and have diverse experience in multimedia,” says CEO Steve Palm. “The person who will have a difficult time moving forward is just a print-seller or someone who can’t handle multiple offerings and closes simultaneously. Those times are gone, although there are a lot of people who still haven’t embraced online or events.”Palm says he’s satisfied with the current levels of edit and IT staffers at his company and has no plans to expand in 2008. “We’re pretty lean, everyone has a role. I do think less about positions and more about individuals. We’re looking for people with a multimedia focus, who are able to handle a lot of different closes, a lot of different media types. If we find those people, the good news is they are able to do a lot of heavy lifting for us.”Business-to-business publisher Vance Publishing is focused on a digital push. “We have been expanding our hiring in the area of digital for the past 18 months and plan to continue,” says president and COO Peggy Walker. “We are hiring Web developers, digital sales, e-product management and Web editors. Positions that are becoming obsolete are print-centric—whether in editorial, sales or audience development. The skills we are looking for include those inherent in the positions mentioned plus smart, agile, flexible, creative and entrepreneurial.”Enthusiast publisher Future US is adding to online and senior management. “We are actively recruiting. We’re placing a job right now for an online person and we’re looking outside the traditional circulation market for that role,” says COO Tom Valentino. “The recent hiring we’ve done is in a senior capacity. We’ve hired an events director who in turn hired a couple more event people to extend that into a proper business. If you look through the list of jobs we’re recruiting for, you’re not seeing many in the traditional print area.”Hanley Wood is investing in digital, including $2 million in personnel and an additional $5 million in Cap Ex, even as CEO Frank Anton admits his company is getting “hammered” by the current downturn. Endurance Business Media offers franchises—of its 360 magazines, 320 are franchises. As the franchises expand, the company is hiring several new people in each new market. But president and CEO F. Blair Schmidt-Fellner says he’s expecting a challenging year with magazines in the real estate space, and is budgeting “just a couple hundred thousand dollars” for new hires in 2008.“Like everyone else, we’ve grown a bunch with the Internet,” says Schmidt-Fellner. “We have a full-blown consumer site, not just b-to-b. We focus on search engine optimization and things that may not be a b-to-b concern and that takes up some positions. We will hire fewer people in ’08. We still have a couple Internet positions to fill, and we do a lot of it with consultants. We’ve been cutting way back on pre-press—we have close to 400 people at two printing plants, and we print millions and millions of these magazines, and every year there seems to be more systems that allow you to touch the paper less and be less involved in the actual production process.”Sales and marketing positions are the primary focus right now for consumer luxe publisher CurtCo. “We scaled up toward the end of last year,” says group publisher David Arnold. “We’re hopeful that if this year continues as it started, we’ll be able to add a couple people, probably one on the marketing side and one in sales.”Euphemisms Or New Positions?For the most part, no particular jobs are becoming obsolete—but dated job descriptions are.During his keynote presentation at the FOLIO: Publishing Summit last month, Meredith Publishing’s Jack Griffin said, “We don’t hire editors anymore, we hire content strategists.”That comment spawned a wave of vehement protests at Foliomag.com, as many editors expressed their objection to what they perceived as a cheapening of the editorial role with a euphemism. Others think the debate over job titles misses the point. “Perhaps everybody here should focus more on delivering content that’s exactly what the consumer demands rather than worry about what astute title you’re assigned for your work,” wrote one reader.However, the fact is, job descriptions are changing and they reflect a multimedia approach. Former Time Out New York editor Brian Farnham recently resurfaced on LinkedIn, looking for possible candidates for a “production manager” position at his online news and information startup Polar News. The position seems to combine editorial, marketing and circulation responsibilities and the job description says, “This person will OWN a specific vertical in a new online news and information site—conception, development, execution, reporting, and measurement.”Last year, Government Computer News editorial director Wyatt Kash gave FOLIO: his wish list for new positions he’d like to see to help accelerate online growth, including online graphic designer, multimedia asset manager, metrics analyst, and community editor. “My sense is we’re leaving new products on the table because we aren’t seeing how it can be used,” said Kash.The pure-play ad salesperson is one of the most obvious changes. “Salespeople need to be much more creative,” says National Geographic’s Malley. “They’re not just selling pages but programs.”In April 2007, Entrepreneur Media eliminated its print publisher position, replacing it with two new vice presidents of integrated sales. “We think the traditional publisher’s role is kind of disappearing,” president Neil Perlman said at the time.PART II: Jobs Not Becoming Obsolete, But Some People ArePART III: Digital Age RecruitingMethodologyThe survey sample of 12,270 was selected by FOLIO: from FOLIO:’s domestic circulation. Data was collected via an email survey from February 4 to February 7, 2008. The survey was closed for tabulation with 885 usable responses, a 7% response rate. Margin of error for percentages based on 885 usable responses is 3.2% at the 95% confidence level.last_img read more

ALs acts shame for nation abroad says Khosru

first_imgBNP standing committee member Amir Khosru Mahmud Chowdhury speaking at a press conference in London on Wednesday.The way ruling Awami League skipped the British parliament’s dialogue on Bangladesh is a matter of shame for the nation, said BNP leader Amir Khosru Mahmud Chowdhury.“Everyone, present in the dialogue, was stunned at the Awami League’s activities. We’re embarrassed. This is a shame for the country and nation,” he said at a press conference in London on Wednesday.The Bangladesh Nationalist Party standing committee member also said the AL, through this, proved that it does not believe in dialogue, discussion, accountability, and democracy.He pointed out that this kind of dialogue gives an opportunity of accountability for both the parties as there is no room for discussion in the country.On Tuesday, a dialogue styled ‘Terrorism in Bangladesh and Rule and Law’ was held at the upper house of the British parliament.The dialogue was expected to be attended by both the AL and the BNP.Prime minister Sheikh Hasina’s economic affairs adviser Masihur Rahman, her foreign affairs adviser Gowher Rizvi and AL government’s former foreign minister Dipu Moni were supposed to join the dialogue.They arrived in London as well, but finally did not join the dialogue.After the dialogue, the AL delegation, however, organised a press conference at the Bangladesh high commission in the UK where they said they did not join the dialogue as it was organised at a personal level.BNP standing committee member Khorsu, the party’s assistant secretary for international affairs Rumeen Farhana, and another BNP leader Humayun Kabir, however, represented the party in the dialogue.The dialogue discussed Bangladesh’s politics, the next elections and the human rights situation.Joining the dialogue, BNP officials alleged that Bangladesh’s AL government is harbouring terrorism to mute its opponents and militancy is spreading its tentacles in absence of democracy.last_img read more

Colonel Sanders Endured a Lifetime of Struggle to Become the Face of

first_imgColonel Sanders was more than just a brand ambassador. He was also a man. In many ways his life and work intertwined – notably with his rank, which was given because of the quality of his chicken rather than for any military purpose. Yet there was a side of the Colonel that typically stays out of sight. That of the tragedies he suffered on the long road to success. Some even occurred after he made his millions with that secret recipe sensation. Kentucky Colonel Harland Sanders in the 1970s, in character Photo by Edgy01 CC BY-SA 3.0Kentucky Fried Chicken was as far from an overnight success as it’s possible to get. The journey didn’t begin for Harland Sanders until he reached middle age. Before then he’d taken many paths, surprising in their variety.His cooking skills, however, were always there. As a 1970 New Yorker profile observes, “He learned to cook at an earlier age than many children learn to ride a bicycle.”Toward the end of the 19th century, he was a young boy who’d learned to feed a family in the absence of his mother Margaret Ann. She was out working at a factory, alongside another job as a seamstress.“Cape Town, South Africa – June 21, 2011: A KFC bucket bearing the image of founder Colonel Harland Sanders is placed above a Drive-thru sign at a suburban KFC franchise in Cape Town.”Sanders’ father Wilbur David had passed away a few years after his birth in 1890, meaning it fell on young Harland to shoulder household responsibilities. Then gainful employment beckoned. He started work on a farm at the age of 10. Margaret Ann married again and the clan moved to Indianapolis. But any happiness was short-lived for Harland, who fell out with his stepfather and ended up striking out on his own and dropping out of education.Sanders at age 7 with his mother in 1897Though hard work was Sanders’ watchword he was also restless, and moved from job to job. His first marriage – to Josephine King from Alabama in 1908 – suffered through this lack of stability.Mashed.com listed his numerous roles, which “included a brief stint in the U.S. Army (during which he was sent to Cuba), as well as working as a streetcar conductor, a railroad fireman, an insurance salesman, a secretary, a tire salesman, a ferry operator, a lawyer, and even a brief stint as a midwife (really!).”Sanders working in his cafe at Corbin, Kentucky, c. 1930sOne devastating event left a lasting mark on Sanders. Harland Jr, one of 3 children he had with Josephine, died in a tragic and unexpected way at 20. He went to have a routine tonsillectomy and developed fatal blood poisoning in 1932. It was a bitter pill to swallow, especially as Sanders’ business interests were looking up. Now entering his forties, he ran a Kentucky gas station and also served food. Really good food.“It wasn’t glamorous work, but it landed Sanders the one thing he’d never found in his life: success,” wrote Mashed.com. “It was a modest yet satisfying life for the Colonel. A few years later, he took out the gas pumps and set up his first restaurant.”The world’s first KFC franchise, located in South Salt Lake, Utah Photo by BigBen212 CC BY SA 3.0Unbeknownst to him, he had built the foundations of Kentucky Fried Chicken. He earned the title of Colonel (from state governor Ruby Laffoon) and eventually those meals became more than just a livelihood. Sadly another setback lay ahead before he could get to that destination.Sanders depended on the flow of traffic to survive. That was cut off when the busy highway junction was moved, followed somewhat cruelly by the building of an interstate highway miles away from the restaurant. Harland sold his business at a loss and took to the road for what could have been one last roll of the dice.He went door to door at eateries up and down the US, armed with his secret weapon… the chicken recipe. Progress was made but nevertheless this was “a slow, expensive, and humiliating way to pursue business partners.”Colonel Harland David Sanders (September 9, 1890 – December 16, 1980) and his wife Claudia in their kitchen. Kentucky, September 1974 (Photo by John Olson/ The LIFE Images Collection/Getty Images)Also “Sanders (and sometimes his wife) lived out of his car and ate begged meals from friends whenever he could.” The marriage finally ended in 1947. He wed Claudia Price 2 years later and they remained together until his death.Through tremendous perseverance, by 1964, 600 outlets were dishing up that lip-smacking brand of the Colonel’s original recipe, the ingredients of which remained a trade secret, though the name KFC hadn’t been applied yet. It should have been blue skies and sunshine for the Colonel from there on in, and to a degree it was.But there was also discontent after he sold the franchise that same year to Kentucky lawyer John Y. Brown Jr, who was working alongside millionaire Jack Massey. Their determination to take the business off Sanders’ hands paid off. By this time he was into his seventies and maybe didn’t have the energy for cutting and thrusting. He parted ways with his dream company for $2 million plus a $40,000 salary.“Stamford, CT, USA July 26th, 2011. KFC was founded by Harland Sanders and is headquartered in Louisville, Kentucky, U.S.”It certainly wasn’t a dog’s life for the Colonel following the sale but he did have his regrets. While his role was now as the face of KFC, his exacting standards meant he clashed with his new bosses.As the New Yorker put it, “The Colonel is vexed almost beyond endurance by the subject of gravy.” For Sanders, quality was king. He just had a different idea of it than his corporate colleagues. As one exec said, “Let’s face it, the Colonel’s gravy was fantastic, but you had to be a Rhodes Scholar to cook it.”It wasn’t unknown for the Colonel to visit a KFC at random to sample their wares. His religious convictions didn’t extend to colorful language and his comments were expressed without a filter. “If the gravy meets his low expectations, he delivers one of his withering gravy critiques, sometimes emphasizing his points by banging his cane on whatever furniture is handy.”Kentucky Fried ChickenHe also went toe to toe with the chicken giant by first opening his own restaurant, then bad-mouthing the company’s standards in the press. All the while he continued as KFC’s chief representative.The New Yorker remarked “Though the Colonel is sometimes cantankerous in private, he is a smooth, charming pro in public… “Everywhere he goes, he attracts crowds of housewives who are grateful for all the nights in the kitchen that K.F.C. has spared them.”Colonel Sanders statue sitting on bench at KFC in Antioch, CaliforniaPhoto by Checkingfax –CC BY-SA 3.0Fans flocked to him, though he wasn’t averse to issuing withering put-downs behind their backs. Even so, the public persona was as immaculate as his white suit. It took a while for Harland Sanders to realize his potential, but once he did, it wasn’t for him to sit back on his laurels. The ride was bumpy but highly rewarding.Read another story from us: 5 Fast Food Joints and the Stories Behind Their NamesOne sentence sums him up better than anything: “The Colonel maintains vigilant fretfulness in the face of overwhelming good fortune.” With the tragedies he and his family endured, it wasn’t surprising he had his doubts.last_img read more
