Bill Reilly Founder of Primedia Dies

first_imgA wake is scheduled for October 21 in New York at the Frank E. Campbell funeral home from 2:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. and 7:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. The funeral will be held Wednesday, Oct. 22 at St. Ignatius Loyola Church in New York at 10:00 a.m.Reilly founded Primedia (then K-III Communications) in 1989 in partnership with Kohlberg, Kravis Roberts & Co, creating one of the country’s largest publishing companies through the aggregation of special-interest magazines, including, at the time, New York magazine, Soap Opera Digest and hundreds of other titles. “If you stay in the niches, you’re fine,” Reilly once told the New York Times.(In 1996, Reilly oversaw the controversial dismissal of New York editor Kurt Andersen, who had written “several unflattering articles” about friends of Primedia owner Henry R. Kravis.)Reilly, though, was forced out by KKR in 1999.Post-PrimediaIn 2001 Reilly partnered with Providence Equity Partners, forming Aurelian Communications, which acquired F+W Publishing for $130 million the following year. F+W was sold in 2005 for $500 million.Reilly broke into publishing as president of Macmillan, Inc. in 1980. He also served on the board of directors at a number of companies and institutions, including FMC Chemicals, WNET, Barnes & Noble, Harvard Business School Publishing and was a trustee of the University of Notre Dame.He founded Summit Business Media in 2006 through a partnership with Wind Point Partners, which acquired Highline Media and Pfingsten Publishing in November of that year.Reilly stepped down as CEO of Summit last year, relinquishing the role to Andy Goodenough. He retained the title of chairman.”Going into the formation of Summit in November 2006, my plan was to drive the initial growth of the business for several years as CEO, and then step back to the Chairman role,” Reilly said at the time.  “I am delighted to be able to report that Summit, in less than two years, is off to a great start and has taken its place as a major B2B media company with more than 26 magazine titles, 150 reference books and electronic products and 100 live events.”Reilly was a deal man at heart. In 1998 he told attendees at the American Magazine Conference that he “welcomed a recession because it might allow him to snatch up some new properties.”And, it appears, Reilly remained a shrewd investor until the end. According to the New York Observer, Reilly recently sold his East River mansion—a home comprised of two converted townhouses—for $32.5 million, well above its $25 million asking price.Reilly had paid $5.1 million for the properties in the 1990s before combining them. RELATED: Magazine Industry Reacts to Death of Primedia Founder Bill ReillyWilliam F. Reilly, a well-regarded executive whose career spanned more than 30 years in special interest and b-to-b magazine publishing, died at his home on Friday after a year-long battle with cancer, his family said. He was 70.Reilly [pictured] had most recently served as chairman of Summit Business Media.last_img read more

Skagway rocked by second landslide in under 2 weeks

first_imgThis photo shows the rockslide area neighboring a Skagway cruise ship dock. (Courtesy Andrew Cremata)Early Tuesday morning, a rockslide crashed into Skagway’s largest cruise ship dock. It was the second slide event in less than two weeks and caused a pair of cruise ships to divert to other ports. Some Skagway residents are calling on the city and the private company that owns the dock to take action.Listen nowRetired fisherman Craig McCormick was sleeping in his charter boat in the Skagway harbor when a sound woke him up at about 3 a.m. Tuesday.“I could hear, kind of feel the slide above the railroad dock coming down,” McCormick said. “And I kind of rolled over and it came down again at 5:30ish.”A steep cliff prone to slides neighbors the boat harbor and Skagway’s biggest cruise ship dock.“The one later in the morning sounded kind of like a waterfall,” McCormick said.More than an inch of rain fell in Skagway the day before the Sept. 5 rockfall. This slide follows one on Aug. 26. As a safety precaution, White Pass and Yukon Route Railroad shut down the dock.White Pass is Skagway’s largest tour company and it owns the railroad dock. White Pass official Tyler Rose said the Sept. 5 slide was bigger than the one in August.“Obviously [we’re] thankful no one was injured,” Rose said. “We’re assessing the area of the damage.”Rose said the damage this time was a bit more extensive. A railing was damaged, along with a water main.After the August slide, White Pass had a geotechnical engineer assess the site. Rose told KHNS that the dock was deemed safe to continue accepting ships the next day.Rose declined to provide more information about the August engineer report or what the assessment entails.This time around, the city of Skagway will be conducting its own evaluation.“It’s something we need to look at in more detail,” Skagway Borough Manager Scott Hahn said.Hahn said he decided late last week to hire a geotechnical engineer to assess the area for the city. Initially, he was going to wait for direction from the assembly. But Hahn said he decided to go ahead and contract with PND Engineers instead of waiting for the next assembly meeting. This second slide just happened to take place the same day the engineer was due to arrive in town.“We need to assess the risk to the dock and the public on the whole hillside,” Hahn said. “So I’m just gonna wait and see what our engineers come up with and go with our best estimates.”Even though White Pass owns the railroad dock, Hahn says the cliff where the slides keep occurring is city land. As for why White Pass is the entity that responds to and assesses the slides, Hahn says he doesn’t know how that process was established.“I don’t know if it’s our liability or their liability,” Hahn said. “But I’m looking at that issue as well.”The assembly is set to talk about the rockslides at its meeting this Thursday.This most recent slide happened at an inconvenient time for Skagway’s tourism industry. The town had no dock space available after the railroad dock was closed. So, two ships were diverted to other ports. The Celebrity Solstice sailed to Icy Strait and the Star Princess went to Haines.“Our tour started like now, so they cancelled them,” Star Princess passenger Jerry Seals said. He was one of dozens lined up Tuesday morning to try to make it to Skagway on a fast ferry shuttle. “We had an excursion in Skagway, gold mining, dog sledding, and that’s all been cancelled.”But the economic toll of the ship diversion isn’t the main thing worrying some Skagway residents. Many spoke out on Facebook Tuesday. They called on White Pass and the city to take action before a slide harms more than the cruise ship schedule.last_img read more

24 killed in Iran parade attack Tehran blames US ally

first_imgThere was no immediate claim of responsibility for the shooting rampage dubbed a “terrorist” attack by the authorities, in which at least 53 people were also wounded. This picture taken on 22 September 2018 shows the long-range Iranian missile `Khoramshahr` being shown during the annual military parade marking the anniversary of the outbreak of the devastating 1980-1988 war with Saddam Hussein`s Iraq, in the capital Tehran. In Iran`s southwestern city of Ahvaz during commemoration of the same event, dozens of people were killed with dozens others wounded in an attack targeting another army parade, state media reported on 22 September. Photo: AFPMilitants shot dead at least 24 people including women and children at a military parade in southwestern Iran on Saturday, state media reported, in a rare attack the government blamed on a US ally in the region. “Of the four terrorists, three were sent to hell at the scene, while the fourth who had been wounded and arrested went to hell moments ago due to his severe wounds,” Shekarchi told state television. Khuzestan was a major battleground of the 1980s war with Saddam’s Iraq and the attack on the anniversary parade in Ahvaz had significant symbolic value. The deadly shooting targeted the city of Ahvaz in Khuzestan, a province bordering Iraq that has a large ethnic Arab community and has seen separatist violence in the past which Iran has blamed on its regional rivals. Armed forces spokesman Brigadier General Abolfazl Shekarchi said that the dead included a young girl and a former serviceman in a wheelchair. In April, 26 alleged IS jihadists went on trial on charges connected with that twin attack. “This event once again reminds us about the necessity of an uncompromising battle against terrorism in all of its manifestations.” On 7 June 2017, 17 people were killed and dozens wounded in simultaneous attacks in Tehran on the parliament building and on the tomb of revolutionary leader Ruhollah Khomeini — the first inside Iran claimed by the Sunni Muslim extremists of the Islamic State group. “They are funded by Saudi Arabia and attempted to cast a shadow over the Iranian armed forces.” “Those who opened fire on civilians and the armed forces have links to the Ahvazi movement,” Guards spokesman Ramezan Sharif told ISNA. Khuzestan deputy governor Ali-Hossein Hosseinzadeh told the semi-official ISNA news agency that a journalist was also among the dead. He also said earlier that “eight to nine” troops had been killed. Attacks by Kurdish rebels on military patrols along the border further north are relatively common. In a keynote speech, Rouhani vowed to boost Iran’s ballistic missile capabilities despite Western concerns that were cited by his US counterpart Donald Trump in May when he abandoned a landmark nuclear deal with Tehran. But foreign minister Mohammad Javad Zarif said he held a US ally in the region responsible. “Terrorists recruited, trained, armed & paid by a foreign regime have attacked Ahvaz,” Zarif said in a tweet, adding: “Iran holds regional terror sponsors and their US masters accountable for such attacks”. Washington has said it is ready to open talks on a new agreement to replace the July 2015 accord, but Tehran has said repeatedly it cannot negotiate under the pressure of the sanctions. But attacks on regime targets inside major cities are far rarer. – Rouhani defiant -The attack in Ahvaz came as Iranian president Hassan Rouhani was among the dignitaries at the main anniversary parade in Tehran. The province saw unrest in 2005 and 2011 but has since seen been largely quiet. Zarif vowed Iran would “respond swiftly and decisively in defence of Iranian lives”. Police said that five people were arrested at the scene of the attacks and dozens more arrests were reported in the following months — many along the borders with Iraq and Turkey. Trump and Rouhani will both be in New York next week for the United Nations General Assembly. But Iran has repeatedly ruled out any meeting. “The number of martyrs of the terrorist incident reached 24, some of whom were women and children among the spectators,” IRNA said, adding the death toll could rise further as many of the wounded were in critical condition. – Finger pointed at Riyadh -Zarif did not specify which regional government he held responsible for the shooting, but Iran’s elite Revolutionary Guards said the attackers were funded by Sunni arch rival Saudi Arabia. Iran has ballistic missiles with a range of up to 3,500 kilometres (2,200 miles), enough to reach both Israel and US bases in the Middle East. In a message of condolence to Russia’s close regional ally, president Vladimir Putin said he was “appalled by this bloody crime.” The United States reimposed crippling sanctions on Iran last month, and a new round of even harsher sanctions targeting Iran’s vital oil sector is set to go back into effect on 5 November. “We will never decrease our defensive capabilities… we will increase them day by day,” Rouhani said at a military parade. “The fact that the missiles anger you shows they are our most effective weapons,” he said, referring to the West.last_img

Trump consoles shooting victims rails against opponents

first_imgUS president Donald Trump addresses the press during a visit to El Paso Regional Communications Centre in El Paso, Texas, on 7 August. Photo: AFPTrump consoled victims of mass shootings in Ohio and Texas on Wednesday, but despite promising a message of unity, he continued to rail at opponents while facing protests that his rhetoric on race has fuelled extremism.Trump flew to El Paso, Texas, where a self-declared white supremacist murdered 22 people last weekend at a Walmart heavily frequented by customers of Hispanic origin.He spent about an hour and a half at a hospital with staff and victims before he and his wife Melania were driven to the city’s emergency operations center to meet with police officers.Protesters gathered in the streets, watched by armed police. “Go home. You are NOT welcome here!” and “Trump hatred, racism not welcome here” read two of the signs.Similar scenes unfolded at an earlier stop in Dayton, Ohio, the site of another mass shooting over the weekend, in which nine people died.Pro-Trump protesters also took to the streets in both cities, illustrating the sense of division in the country ahead of next year’s election.Question of respectJournalists were mostly kept away from the Republican president, but in brief comments near the end of the two-city trip, Trump said he’d had an “amazing day.”Then after praising the “heroes” who confronted the killers, Trump used his one appearance before the cameras to reignite his feud with opponents who accuse him of racism and who had argued against him visiting either Ohio or Texas.”They shouldn’t be politicking today,” he said, calling Ohio Democratic Senator Sherrod Brown, who questioned the use of Trump’s visit to Dayton, “very dishonest.”Apparently stung by the less-than-enthusiastic reception given to him by some leaders in both cities, Trump also made a point of insisting that he’d been treated warmly.”The love, the respect for the office of the presidency, it was — I wish you could there to see it,” he told journalists.Trump returned to that theme in a tweet announcing his departure from El Paso, saying: “The Fake News worked overtime trying to disparage me and the two trips, but it just didn’t work. The love, respect & enthusiasm were there for all to see.”Earlier, Trump’s social media director Dan Scavino tweeted that the president had been treated like a “Rock Star” in the Dayton hospital.The White House, which had kept away news photographers, saying that it didn’t want to treat the visit as a photo-op, subsequently published its own pictures showing Trump alongside medical staff, police and victims.Feuding consoler in chiefIn Dayton, Trump told shooting survivors that “you had God watching. I want you to know we’re with you all the way,” according to presidential spokeswoman Stephanie Grisham.But the traditional presidential role of consoler-in-chief blended awkwardly with accusations that Trump is himself to blame for rising tensions in the United States over race.Trump vehemently denies any racism but his choice of language, linking Hispanic migrants to murder, rape and invasion, is widely seen as at best incendiary.A famed border city, El Paso is at the center of Trump’s high-profile political campaign against illegal immigration and his keystone project of building walls along the Mexican frontier.The killer deliberately sought out the city, claiming to be stopping an “invasion” of illegal migrants — a term popularized by Trump repeatedly in campaign speeches.As recently as May, the president laughed and made a quip when a supporter at one of his rallies yelled that they should “shoot” illegal immigrants.Leading Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden gave a speech on Wednesday accusing Trump of fanning “the flames of white supremacy.”And Trump, who’d begun the day at the White House by insisting that his rhetoric “brings people together,” went on Twitter from Air Force One to respond.”Watching Sleepy Joe Biden making a speech. Sooo Boring!” Trump wrote, while flying between Dayton and El Paso.Gun control? Where Trump and his mostly leftist opponents agree is on the unambiguous designation of the two events as terrorism.Massacres by mostly lone gunmen are all but routine in the United States, where guns are easy to obtain legally and mass killings have taken on a sort of cult status in extreme circles.Hardline defenders of gun ownership have long resisted the portrayal of such tragedies as anything more than random, localized events.But Trump on Monday said he had told the FBI to treat such crimes as “domestic terrorism.”On Wednesday, Trump also said that Republicans and Democrats were “close” to agreeing on stronger background checks for people buying firearms — a measure opposed by gun rights lobbyists.”I think background checks are important. I don’t want to put guns into the hands of mentally unstable people or people with rage or hate,” Trump said.However, he said “there is no political appetite” for banning military style assault weapons, which are widely available and are often chosen by mass killers.last_img read more

Exercise helps people overpower depression

first_imgThe study divided 62 individuals with diagnosed clinical depression into three groups, in which two participated in two different types of exercise with a physiotherapist twice a week for 10 weeks while the third, the control group, did not participate in systematic exercise.”In our follow-up interviews for the study, participants spoke about how they felt alive again and became more active. One woman expressed… the workout ‘kickstarts my body and helps me get the strength to crawl out of this cocoon that I am in’,” said PhD student Louise Danielsson.  Also Read – ‘Playing Jojo was emotionally exhausting’People who participated in exercise aimed at increasing their physical fitness clearly improved their mental health compared with the control group. Even participants who were taught about their basal body awareness by the physiotherapist reduced their depressive symptoms, although not as significantly.The studies show that the participants who exercised felt that they had the strength to do more at home and engage with more social contacts.”Our results show that exercise can be used within primary care with the rehabilitation of people with depression,” Danielsson said.last_img read more

In Tokyo Philippine leader criticizes China over sea moves

first_img Ex-FBI agent details raid on Phoenix body donation facility Since both countries are U.S. allies and share concerns over China’s maritime activity, the Philippines is extremely important to Japan, said Kenko Sone, spokesman at Japan’s Prime Minister’s Office.Asked about a U.S. role, Aquino said America’s presence is crucial to the region’s stability and that the international community should act proactively.In a speech at a conference organized by the Nikkei business newspaper, Aquino criticized what he called China’s “unlawful territorial claim” and hinted at similarities between Beijing’s land-reclamation in the South China Sea and Nazi Germany’s expansionist moves before World War II. He has drawn similar parallels in the past.Foreign Ministry officials said Monday that Abe and Aquino were also expected to expand their defense cooperation in other areas, including the transfer of Japanese military equipment and technology to the Philippines, possibly related to maritime reconnaissance. Tokyo eased a ban on military exports last year.In a speech to the upper house of Japan’s parliament, Aquino said that the maritime and coastal stability in the region is “at risk of being disrupted by attempts to redraw the geographic limits and entitlements outside those clearly bestowed by the law of nations.” Get a lawn your neighbor will be jealous of TOKYO (AP) — On his sixth visit to Japan in five years, Philippine President Benigno Aquino III on Wednesday criticized China’s assertiveness in regional seas, a concern shared by both countries as they deepen their ties.During his four-day visit, Aquino will hold talks with Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe focusing on defense and security ties. They are expected to sign a deal confirming Japan’s provision of 10 patrol vessels to the Philippine coast guard to bolster its patrolling capability around Manila-claimed South China Sea islands.

500 Days A Housing Industry Snapshot

first_img in Daily Dose, Featured, Government, News June 7, 2018 589 Views 500 Days: A Housing Industry Snapshot Banks Ben Carson Brian Montgomery Dodd-Frank Government Jerome Powell Lenders Mick Mulvaney mortgage President Trump Volcker Rule 2018-06-07 Radhika Ojhacenter_img The Trump administration recently celebrated 500 days in office. How has the landscape of the housing industry changed during that time? In this piece, MReport walks you through the key legislation and nominations that have impacted the industry since January 2017.The Big PictureThe tax reform bill, perhaps the administration’s key piece of legislation passed in these 500 days, was signed into law in December 2017. While the bill had major implications for many industries, several key provisions impacted the housing industry. From downsized mortgage interest rate reduction and limits on property tax deductions to tax break stays for homesellers, the $1.4 trillion tax cut bill impacted homeowners, buyers, and sellers.While the fall in unemployment is part of a larger revival in jobs predating the current administration, the latest numbers from the Bureau of Labor Statistics indicated that the unemployment rate had fallen to 3.8 percent by the end of April. For the housing industry, which continues its struggle with the supply side, the latest job numbers also meant an increase in construction labor. The latest jobs report indicated that jobs in construction had risen by 286,000 over the past 12 months. When looking at the quality of life and housing across the country, OECD’s Better Life Index indicated that the U.S. ranked among the top countries in housing, income, and wealth, roughly at the same rank as when President Trump was sworn into office.A Look at LegislationIn May, the Dodd-Frank Reform bill—known officially as the Economic Growth, Regulatory Relief, and Consumer Protection Act—was signed into law by President Trump. The bill seeks to evolve and streamline regulations put in place by the 2010 Dodd-Frank Act and was passed by the House on May 22, by a vote of 258-159. “This is a moment years in the making, and I thank my colleagues in the Senate and the House of Representatives for their partnership and contributions to this effort over the years,” said Sen. Mike Crapo (R-ID), Chairman of the Senate Banking Committee. “This step toward right-sizing regulation will allow local banks and credit unions to focus more on lending, in turn propelling economic growth and creating jobs on Main Street and in our communities. This is an important moment for small financial institutions, small businesses, and families across America.”While the Dodd-Frank reform bill was still being discussed, the House of Representatives passed a new bill in April that would streamline the Volcker Rule. Implemented as part of the larger Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act, the Volcker Rule limits the types of speculative investments banks can participate in, as a way to try and prevent some of the factors that contributed to the 2008 financial crisis. This new House bill, passed with a vote of 300-104, would make the Federal Reserve the sole regulator for Volcker Rule compliance. At the time, some proponents of the Volcker rule called for the bill to be rolled into the larger Dodd-Frank reform bill. However, the bill remains a separate piece of legislation and moved forward recently after the SEC voted on the overhaul. The SEC was the last of the five financial agencies required to sign off on the changes. According to Bloomberg, the changes are being viewed as a significant win for banks that have “long argued the original rule was overly complex and costly to comply with.”Noms, Noms, NomsIn the 500 days since the administration took office, many of President Trump’s nominees have been appointed to key positions. From the Fed Chairman to the most recent appointment of the head of the FHA (a position that had been vacant for the past four years), the nominations and appointments made by this administration are set to have a far-reaching effect on the housing industry.Most recently, in May, Brian Montgomery, who had been nominated by the President for the position of Assistant Secretary for Housing-Federal Housing Commissioner, U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development in November, was approved by the Senate by a vote of 74-33. “I’m honored to have the opportunity to serve with Secretary Carson and the team at HUD to further equal access to affordable rental housing and homeownership opportunities and seek solutions to restore vitality to the housing market,” Montgomery said in a statement. Montgomery, an industry veteran, served in the Executive Office of the President during the Administration of President George W. Bush before transitioning to his role as Assistant Secretary at HUD and FHA Commissioner under Presidents Bush and Obama. In recent years, he has served as Vice Chairman at The Collingwood Group, LLC, a Washington DC-based real estate finance consulting firm.In November 2017, President Trump nominated Jerome Powell for the position of Fed Chair “He’s strong, he’s committed, and he’s smart,” President Trump said during the official announcement. “And if he is confirmed by the Senate he will put his considerable talents and experience to work, leading our nation’s central independent bank, which has the critical responsibility to set monetary policy and our banking system as a whole.” Powell won the Senate over and was appointed to this position in early 2018. During his Congressional testimony in February after being confirmed, he backed further interest rate hikes.Around the same time, the President nominated Mick Mulvaney, the Federal Budget Director to the position of Acting Director of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB). While the decision was a controversial one at that time, Mulvaney has brought in a slew of changes at the consumer watchdog. From requesting for $0 in funding for the CFPB in the second quarter to announcing that the Bureau had to be more “transparent and accountable,” Mulvaney has made quick changes to the way the Bureau works.In March 2017, Dr. Ben Carson was appointed as HUD secretary after a final Senate vote of 58-41.  “I am immensely grateful and deeply humbled to take on such an important role in service to the American people,” said Secretary Carson had said upon his appointment. Since then, despite the controversies, under his leadership, HUD has taken on several important initiatives such as announcing a major disbursement of funds to help communities still recovering from the 2017 natural disasters, partnering with the Department of Justice to end sexual assault in housing, and most recently commemorating 50 years of the Fair Housing Act.
