Last week while researching a story on how confusingly similar b-to-b company names are (Ascend, Aspire, Summit Media, Summit Business Media et al) Steve Weitzner, the president of Ziff Davis Enterprise, told me that “about the third time I had to explain to a customer that we aren’t that Ziff Davis, we’re the other Ziff Davis, I realized we needed a name change.”Weitzner says the company is working on a name change but is in no rush. “We only want to change it once.”So, in the true spirit of b-to-b service journalism, I thought it’d be nice if we all help Ziff Davis Enterprise brainstorm new names. I’d do it myself, but I’m not sure Not That Ziff Davis (NTZD Inc.) is what they’re going for. Leave your idea for Ziff Davis Enterprise’s new name in the comments section below, and we’ll add ‘em to the shortlist.And while you’re at it, let’s come up with a new name for Summit Media too. Who knows? Maybe they’ll actually use ‘em …
US group Liberty Media is close to taking control of Formula 1 in an $8.5bn (Â£6.5bn) deal, according to reports.The investment group, which also owns Virgin Media, is in advanced talks with CVC Partners, the US private equity group which controls the motorsport, said the Financial Times and German magazine Auto Motor und Sport. Liberty Media is owned by US billionaire John Malone.A deal could be hammered out within the next two weeks.CVC Capital Partners, which has a 35% stake in F1 has held a major share of the sport for the past decade. But for the past several years the sport has been swept by rumours that it wants to sell its holding.A host of other parties have previously been linked with buying into F1 including Qatar Sports Investments, which owns Paris Saint-Germain football club; and Stephen Ross, owner of the Miami Dolphins football team.If the deal goes ahead Chase Carey, the executive vice-chairman of US media group 21st Century Fox, is expected to become chairman of F1.However, a question mark remains over the future role of F1s longstanding chief executive Bernie Ecclestone, 85, who owns 5% of the sports parent company. At the Italian Grand Prix at Monza this weekend, Mr Ecclestone told reporters that Liberty are getting a lot of publicity out of their deals.It remains unclear whether Ecclestone is in favour of a deal with Liberty.F1 was not immediately available for comment.
By Stephen Janis, Special to the AFROTechnically the 41st district Senate seat is still occupied by long time legislator Nathaniel Oaks. However, the pending corruption charges against him have fueled speculation that two high profile candidates may vie for it next June when the democratic primaries are held for state office seekers: Former Baltimore Mayor Sheila Dixon and ex-State Delegate Jill Carter.Two formidable Baltimore politicians, former Baltimore Mayor Sheila Dixon and former 41st District Del. Jill Carter may be eyeing the 41st District State Senate seat currently held by embattled Sen. Nathaniel Oaks. (Courtesy Photos)The potential matchup would pit two of the city’s best known and most formidable politicians in a battle for the 41st district senate seat, and offer a rematch between a former mayor who resigned from office and the top vote getter in that district.“They might smell blood in the water,” said Delegate Curt Anderson (D-43). “Depending on what happens with the charges.”Oaks was appointed to the seat after Lisa Gladden resigned in 2016 due to health reasons. But six months after joining the senate he was indicted on nine counts of bribery and fraud charges for allegedly accepting payments in exchange for helping FBI informants to procure a federal housing contract.His trial is scheduled to begin in May.Both Carter and Dixon have name recognition and decades of experience in public office. But in the 41st, Carter would hold the advantage some say due to her commanding vote tallies in previous elections.“Jill certainly has won by a wide margin in the district, “Anderson said.Still, neither candidate has formally announced their intention to run. Dixon told the AFRO she is still in the process of weighing her options.“I’m between 50 percent to 75 percent,” she said. “I’m waiting to meet with some key constituents to get their input before I decide.”Former Delegate Carter who currently heads the city’s Civil Rights and Wage enforcement office says she is considering running but has also not decided.“At this point I am not saying I will run, I am being asked forcefully by many people to run,” Carter said.But the lack of clarity on who will be on ballot next year didn’t stop either candidate from criticizing their prospective opponent.“Why didn’t she go for the seat when it was open,” Dixon said, referring to the process during which Oaks was selected by the Democratic Central Committee.“I think the 41st district has been neglected and I can use my skills and experience to change that.”But Carter was more blunt, noting Dixon’s prosecution for corruption while she was mayor and subsequent resignation shortly after her conviction in 2010.“Time for her to give it up. She had a long career in politics and it ended badly. It’s over and that’s that,” Carter said.Since he was charged Oaks has maintained his innocence and has given no indications that he will step down, perhaps making the electoral machinations even more dicey.“Technically his trial could be postponed,” Anderson noted.Oaks did not return a request for comment,The potential battle in the 41st comes amid a flurry of challenges to sitting state senators that are making the upcoming campaign season unusually active. State Delegate Cory McCray (D-45), has announced a run for the 45th district seat held by Nathaniel McFadden. Similarly, Delegate Antonio Hayes (D-40), recently threw his hat into the ring in the 40th to unseat Senator Barbara Robinson.State Delegate Mary Washington (D-43) has filed to challenge Senator Joan Carter- Conway, who has held the 43rd district senate seat for nearly 20 years. She says the upstart campaigns are a response to constituents who want more engaged representatives.“I think what a lot of us understand is there is a grassroots push to be more engaged,” she said. “The electorate is not accepting the top down approach anymore.”

WASHINGTON (AP) — The $1,000 pill for a liver-wasting viral infection that made headlines last year is no longer the favorite of patients and doctors.The new leading pill for hepatitis C is more expensive, and the number of patients seeking a cure has surged.Sovaldi, last year’s wonder drug, has been pushed aside by a successor called Harvoni, made by the same company. The sticker price for Harvoni is $1,350 a pill. How Arizona is preparing the leader of the next generation “I would have had to basically deplete my entire retirement,” Rosario said. “As much as I wanted to be cured, I would have not gone through the treatment and waited for another option.”Copyright © The Associated Press. All rights reserved. This material may not be published, broadcast, rewritten or redistributed. How do cataracts affect your vision? Gilead spokeswoman Cara Miller said the company is working with public programs and private insurers to broaden access. Gilead estimates that 80 percent of insured people with hepatitis C have coverage for its medications.“We are pleased that many payers have recognized the value of our single-tablet regimen for hepatitis C and, in most cases, have chosen to open up broad access on their formularies,” Miller said. The company says its drugs will save the system money in the long run.Hepatitis C is complex, and treatments differ for its subtypes. Patients say it feels like a deep, never-ending fatigue. While the disease advances gradually, it can ultimately destroy the liver, and transplants average $577,000. It’s also a public health concern, since it can be transmitted by contact with infected blood, by drug users sharing needles, and sometimes through sexual activity.Daniel Rosario, a New Yorker who works in retail, said his insurer would not pay for Harvoni because his hepatitis C hadn’t advanced to the point of severe liver damage. He finally got his prescription at no charge through Gilead’s patient assistance program, which took into account his income. Top Stories SURGE OF PATIENTSThe number of prescriptions filled for hepatitis C drugs has more than doubled, from an average of 20,600 a month during the first three months of last year to a monthly average of 48,000 for the same period this year, according to IMS.“People are coming in who never wanted to be treated before,” said Dr. Douglas Dieterich, director of outpatient liver disease treatment at Mount Sinai Hospital in New York City. “When I started in 1989, I used to have a 3 percent cure rate. Now I have a 3 percent failure rate.”___SIMPLICITY’S APPEALHarvoni, the new pill from California-based Gilead Sciences, accounted for about three-fourths of the prescriptions filled for hepatitis C drugs in the first three months of this year, IMS said.A big part of the reason is simplicity, explained Dieterich. Patients on Harvoni need only take a single pill daily, for 12 weeks in most cases. Previously, patients took combinations of drugs.Harvoni quickly rose to the top after its approval last fall, with monthly sales crossing the $1-billion mark by January.Another new drug, Viekira Pak, is gaining market share but appears to be far behind. It’s an equally effective cure and priced lower. Comments Share Still, Viekira Pak is a four-pill daily combination, and patients have to take another antiviral drug as well. It was introduced late last year by Illinois-based AbbVie.The extent of Viekira Pak’s inroads is hard to discern. The company has not disclosed prescription volumes. And a major pharmacy that promotes the drug does not report hepatitis C data to IMS.___NOT MANY DEEP DISCOUNTSDRX’s analysis of prices paid by private health plans shows the median discount for Harvoni was 13.7 percent between April and June.That reflects a modest price break for most insurers, including those delivering Medicare’s prescription drug benefit, said DRX executive vice president Jim Yocum.“This sets the stage for some of the new cancer drugs coming out, both in terms of a vast improvement in effectiveness and a vast increase in prices,” said Yocum. “This is a concern not only for commercial health plans, but for Medicare.”Medicare is barred from negotiating drug prices.___State Medicaid programs, however, and the federal Veterans Affairs health system are legally entitled to deep discounts.Matt Salo, executive director of the National Association of Medicaid Directors, said competition from Viekira Pak has enabled states to win bigger rebates from the manufacturers. But Salo says cost remains a “major, major problem” because of the large number of people with hepatitis C. At the median discounted price, a 12-week treatment regimen of Harvoni costs about $98,000.

Other medications that could turn into cost drivers include a new treatment for melanoma and a cholesterol-lowering drug awaiting approval. More hepatitis C drugs are also headed to market.Hepatitis C affects some 3 million people in the U.S. and claims more lives here than AIDS. With the new drugs, patients finally have a choice among highly effective cures with minimal side effects. Previous treatments were hit and miss, and many patients couldn’t tolerate the side effects. But newfound choice doesn’t seem to have led to widespread price competition.“As a society we need a way of determining what is a reasonable price at the time of introduction of a new drug,” said Stephen Schondelmeyer, a University of Minnesota professor who specializes in pharmaceutical economics. “We have expanded coverage, but we haven’t done anything to control costs on the pricing side.”The Associated Press asked two companies that track the prescription drug market for a hepatitis C update. IMS Health collects data on pharmacy prescriptions and sales, while DRX surveys prices paid by private health plans and prescription benefit managers. What they found:
GLENDALE, Ariz. — Jonathan Cooper says he’s ready to go.The Arizona Cardinals’ left guard has not played in a game since breaking his leg in the team’s third preseason game last August. After finally getting a chance to step back on the field at University of Phoenix Stadium and practice with his team, he declared himself ready to go.“It was awesome,” he said after day one of training camp. “I felt a little better than I did at OTAs, a little bit more comfortable. I think it just helped to be able to read and react, not be thinking so much. Just go out there and play, it felt pretty good. – / 22 “It’s exciting, just trying to play for the guys beside me and having fans there, that definitely boosts the morale of the practice,” he said. “It felt great to get out there.” Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retires Top Stories The 5: Takeaways from the Coyotes’ introduction of Alex Meruelo Derrick Hall satisfied with D-backs’ buying and selling Comments Share “It will definitely be a different story once pads get on, then it will be the true test. But for now, I’m pleased.”For sure, Cooper will not really be able to know how ready he is until he is asked to hit somebody and, in essence, do the very thing that led to his injury in the first place. He’s had plenty of time to get ready for and think about this moment, having spent all of last season on Injured Reserve unable to contribute.But now he’s back and expected to solidify a revamped offense line. The seventh pick in the 2013 draft out of North Carolina, the only questions surrounding Cooper are related to his health, not his ability. Cooper added that Saturday was his “litmus test” as far as telling how far he’s come in his recovery, and since he felt great then, he’s excited to continue forward with his progression, with the next step being putting the pads on and dealing with contact. Only then will he know he’s truly back.That will happen Monday. Until then, just as it was Saturday, Cooper and the team will go through practice without pads on but in front of fans. It’s the first time that’s happened for him since the injury. Grace expects Greinke trade to have emotional impact

Go back to the enewsletterSanctuary Retreats‘ Global Director of Sales & Marketing, Pieter van der Schee, was in Sydney late last month to update trade partners, travel advisors and media on the group’s current transitional period, which includes investment in Africa, China and Egypt as the company looks to drive change and improvement in the industry.The renewed investment includes the recent upgrade of Sanctuary Retreats Sun Boat IV which operates on the Nile in Egypt. Sanctuary Retreats is a collection of 12 luxury African safari camps & lodges and six luxury cruise ships in Myanmar, China and Egypt.Sanctuary Retreats has a long record of creating authentic, luxury safaris, not just with camps and lodges in the most iconic locations in Africa – such as the Masai Mara, the Serengeti, near the Victoria Falls and in the Okavango Delta – and reflecting the natural environment in the buildings, but also through some of the very best guides and professional but warm, friendly service from the staff who come from the local communities.A few years ago, however, Sanctuary Retreats noticed that travellers from Australia and around the world are changing. Although they still want to experience the heart and soul of Africa, tastes in design and style have changed, and Sanctuary Retreats is leading this change with a massive investment in upgrading our portfolio.The rustic atmosphere of the past decades is being replaced by contemporary designs, much brighter and more elegant, opening up the tents and rooms to let the natural surroundings speak for themselves, instead of trying to replicate them on the inside. Some of the camps and lodges are brand new, from the ground up, while some are renovations and re-designs, but always transforming the experience and sense of Africa to keep honouring this wonderful continent.Sanctuary Retreats’ Global Director of Sales & Marketing, Pieter van der Schee, in Sydney recently.In addition to the Nile, the luxury travel company has river cruises boats in China and Myanmar, but it’s Egypt where Sanctuary sees the biggest growth in the year ahead.“Enquiries and bookings for our cruises on the Nile are booming as Australians are re-discovering the truly amazing artworks, temples and tombs of the ancient Egyptians located along the Nile’s river banks. And now is a great time to go there because it’s still quiet when you’re visiting the temples which gives you a great chance to see the highlights from up-close and at your leisure,” van der Schee said.Upgrades are also planned for Sanctuary’s other vessels, Sanctuary Sun Boat III, Nile Adventurer, Sanctuary Zein Nile Chateau).“We are proud that we have operated our entire fleet in Egypt throughout the quieter years, making sure our boats and staff are ready to offer an unrivalled luxury and sophisticated experience to the new influx of visitors to Egypt,” van der Schee added.In Myanmar, Sanctuary has been operating Ananda since 2014, a custom-built, state-of-the-art ship that combines the comforts of 5-star contemporary luxury with the refined elegance of authentic Burmese design.Ananda is already established as one of the most luxurious river cruise ships in Myanmar, but last year Sanctuary Retreats enhanced the offering still further, partnering with French skincare brand, L’Occitane en Provence, to offer a new spa experience aboard its luxurious river cruise ship. Named after a paddle steamer in the old Irrawaddy Flotilla, L’Occitane’s first cruise spa, Thambyadine Spa by L’Occitane, is located on the Yangon Deck, and offers a range of therapies from two treatment rooms for guests of the 21-suite river cruise ship.Last year, Sanctuary also saw the relaunch of the company’s Sanctuary Yangzi Explorer in China following a comprehensive refurbishment.A cruise on the Yangtze River is a real must-do experience as part of a China trip and the new-look Sanctuary Yangzi Explorer offers an authentic and ultimate cruise with unprecedented 1:1 service. The ship has 38 deluxe cabins which are the largest entry-level cabins on the river as well as 20 suites and 4 specialty suites, and all of them have private balconies.LATTE attended the intimate lunch with Sanctuary Retreats at Bentley Restaurant & Bar in Sydney on Wednesday 24 October.Lead image: Pieter van der Schee, Global Director Sales & Marketing for Sanctuary Retreats, Mary Morton, Director of ID Collective and Michael McCall, Director of Sales, Australia and Asia.Go back to the enewsletter
The owner of Paok Thessalonikis, tipped to buy a Church-controlled television station in Cyprus and who attended the president’s inauguration at the invitation of the archbishop, went onto the pitch apparently armed with a pistol to protest over a disallowed goal during a match on Sunday with another Greek team, AEK.Russian-born Ivan Savvidis, one of Greece’s richest men, walked onto the pitch during an interruption in the match on Sunday night in Thessaloniki when referee Georgios Kominis disallowed a goal from Paok’s Fernando Varela in the 89th minute. Until then the match had been a goalless draw.Savvidis, who was flanked by his bodyguards, wore a holster on his waist containing what appeared to be a revolver, though he did not remove it during the ensuing fracas.Russian-born Greek businessman and owner of PAOK Salonika, Ivan Savvides (C), pictured with what appears to be a gun in a holster, enters the pitchAEK officials claimed Savvidis threatened the referee during his foray onto the pitch, before being pulled away.The referee finally allowed the goal about two hours later.On Monday, Greece’s sports minister promised to take ‘bold decisions’.Images of “persons entering sports grounds armed” harm PAOK and football in general, Greek Deputy Culture and Sports Minister Georgios Vassiliadis said in a written statement.“Such extreme phenomena call for bold decisions,” he said, without elaborating.On Monday afternoon Greece suspended its first division fixtures indefinitely.Savvidis was born in Georgia of Greek heritage and is a former member of the Russian parliament. He has holdings in assets ranging from Thessaloniki port to tobacco and media companies.Earlier this month, Savvides attended President Nicos Anastasiades’ inauguration ceremony in parliament at the invitation of Archbishop Chrysostomos.Reports had linked him with the possible acquisition of TVOne, the television channel owned by the Church of Cyprus, but nothing official has been made public.Savvidis is not a newcomer to the mass media business. In August last year, he acquired around one-fifth of Greece’s Mega Channel from Greek businessman Fotis Bobolas for a consideration of €5m. Two months later, Savvidis sold his stake to Cyprus’s Elenovo Ltd, a company headquartered in the same building, which houses the Limassol-based law firm Andreas Sofocleous and Co. LLC.In July 2017, Savvidi also acquired two Greek newspapers, Ethnos, including its Sunday edition, and Imerisia, plus their logos for a total of €3.6m.The newspapers were also affiliated with the Bobolas family.You May LikeDr. Marty ProPower Plus Supplement3 Dangerous Foods People Feed Their Dogs (Without Realizing It)Dr. Marty ProPower Plus SupplementUndoPopularEverythingColorado Mom Adopted Two Children, Months Later She Learned Who They Really ArePopularEverythingUndoKelley Blue Book10 Electric Cars That Last the LongestKelley Blue BookUndo Turkish Cypriot actions in Varosha ‘a clear violation’ of UN resolutions, Nicosia saysUndoPensioner dies after crash on Paphos-Polis roadUndoConcern over falling tourism numbersUndoby Taboolaby Taboola
The growing pressure to finally shut down Kotsiatis landfill went all the way to the presidential palace on Wednesday with Agriculture Minister Costas Kadis saying that a final solution is expected to be reached by next week.Following a meeting at the palace, chaired by President Nicos Anastasiades, Kadis said that the deadline extension given by the EU to close down the landfill expired at the end of last year and that Cyprus is now in a difficult spot.“Therefore, our priority is to move fast and make final any arrangements,” Kadis said.The Kotsiatis rubbish dump was supposed to close in 2009. After a plan to build a separate waste-management plant in Nicosia was scrapped, it was decided to transfer rubbish from Kotsiatis to the Koshi plant in Larnaca. Procedures for this were delayed following the bribery scandals and ensuing trials concerning Helector, the company running Koshi and Paphos sanitary landfills.The issue was even further delayed following constant rejections by the Central Committee on Changes and Claims (KEAA) of deals agreed between the government and Helector on the management of the Nicosia district’s garbage.The KEAA reportedly rejected last week the latest deal – the fourth rejected by the committee – because it disagreed with the estimated cost per tonne of garbage, in place since 2016. The committee, according to daily Politis, demanded lower costs which could spare the tax payer around €2m.The meeting at the presidential palace on WednesdayKadis said that the president had given instructions for the competent state services to renegotiate with Helector and if possible reach an agreement based on the terms set by the KEAA.“The guidelines given by the president is to move ahead the soonest possible. It is expected that we will reach to a conclusion one way or another within the coming days,” Kadis said. He added that if consultations with Helector fail, the government is also looking into all alternative solutions.On the reservations expressed recently by Auditor-general, Odysseas Michaelides, on any agreement with Helector, citing the ongoing bribery trial, Kadis said these had been taken into consideration, “but one must see how the wider public interest is being served”.Kadis said that the closure of Kotsiatis is still pending and if the EU imposes infringement fines Cyprus would have to pay millions of euros.“All this ought to be taken into account within the framework of serving the public interest,” Kadis said.Michaelides, who took part in the meeting, expressed last week his opposition to any supplementary deal with Helector to extend the Koshi agreement, citing possible provisions which could harm public interest.Michaelides said that the inclusion of any unequal clauses burdening the government and paying any amount “which may include serious overpayments, harms public interest”.He had said that the lump sum of €20m which the agriculture ministry proposes to give to the contractor “as a supposed due amount” was too much and should not exceed €13m.Former Agriculture Minister, Nicos Kouyialis, said last year that the government owed to Helector more than €17m for operation fees since January 2015.Last week residents of villages neighbouring the landfill threatened to block within 15 days all roads leading to the dump in protest over constant postponements to its closure, citing health and safety hazards. A fire at the dump at the end of last month added to the calls for its immediate closure.The EU initiated an infringement process last May for the delays with Cyprus looking at fines of around €30,000 for each day of delay. Following the visit last October by European Environment Commissioner Karmenu Vella, the EU had given the government more time.
