first_imgSpanish prosecutors call for arrest of Messi’s father MADRID (AP): Barcelona prosecutors are calling for the arrest of Lionel Messi’s father in a tax fraud case. Prosecutors have cleared Messi of wrongdoing but are seeking an 18-month prison sentence for his father, Jorge Horacio Messi, for allegedly defrauding Spain’s tax office of €4 million (US$4.5 million) in unpaid taxes from 2007-09. The decision is considered a win for Lionel Messi, who also had been mentioned in the investigation. A Spanish judge had recently rejected an appeal filed by the player’s lawyers to drop the Barcelona star from the case. In the documents made public yesterday, prosecutors also called for a fine of €2 million (US$2.2 million) for the father of the Argentina playmaker. Klopp could take over at Liverpool LIVERPOOL, England (AP): Juergen Klopp appears to be close to taking over as Liverpool manager. Representatives of the former Borussia Dortmund coach are in talks with the Premier League club, which fired Brendan Rodgers on Sunday after the team’s 18-month slump since nearly winning the league title in 2014. Liverpool could make a new appointment by the end of the week. The team’s next game is against Tottenham on October 17. The 48-year-old Klopp has been out of work since leaving Dortmund at the end of last season, after winning two German league titles. He is regarded as one of European football’s most respected coaches. Former Real Madrid coach, Carlo Ancelotti, is also considered to be a potential candidate to replace Rodgers. Rio Olympics cutting costs RIO DE JANEIRO (AP): Olympic organisers, faced with the reality of a country deep in recession, are trimming costs to keep their budget balanced. To keep spending in line, officials say they will cut back on volunteers, reduce staffing at dozens of test events and trim costs for the opening and closing ceremonies of the Olympics and Paralympics in Rio de Janeiro. “This is a very strict budget,” said Sidney Levy, the organising committee’s chief executive officer. “There’ll be no excess, but we are not going to compromise the essentials.” News of the budget austerity comes as hundreds of journalists from around the world are in Rio this week visiting Olympic venues and talking with organisers about how the Games will run when they open August 5, 2016.last_img read more

Half-time: Blackburn 1 QPR 0

first_imgQPR are behind at Ewood Park thanks to a well-taken strike from Rudy Gestede.The former Cardiff forward, who has troubled the Rangers defence with his presence up front, drove a low shot from just outside the box beyond Rob Green.Blackburn, unbeaten in six matches, came close to scoring a second when Gestede’s flick on dropped for Jordan Rhodes but he was denied by Green.Ravel Morrison has been QPR’s brightest spark in attack and he forced former England goalkeeper Paul Robinson into a smart stop with a first-time volley.Aside from that effort, Blackburn have restricted Rangers to shots from distance, with Morrison, Yossi Benayoun and Benoit Assou-Ekotto all blazing over.At the other end, Blackburn’s Grant Hanley nodded wide when well placed.Luke Young is a surprise inclusion in the QPR starting line-up, the 34-year-old making his first appearance in the side since March 2012.QPR (4-4-1-1): Green; Simpson, Dunne, Young, Assou-Ekotto; Hoilett, Henry, Benayoun, Carroll; Morrison; Keane.Subs: Murphy, Austin, Yun, Zamora, O’Neil, Donaldson, Maiga.Follow West London Sport on TwitterFind us on Facebooklast_img read more

YouTube Network Holds Celebrity’s AdSense Account Hostage

first_imgTags:#YouTube 12 Unique Gifts for the Hard-to-Shop-for People… 5 Outdoor Activities for Beating Office Burnout fruzsina eordogh Related Posts center_img Last night, top YouTuber Ray William Johnson dropped a bombshell: The network he left almost two months ago has yet to return his AdSense account despite promising to do so.Johnson left his network, Maker Studios, in October to much speculation, which I used as an opportunity to address how YouTube networks were taking advantage of young talent with predatory contracts and unsavory business practices. The story appealed to many, even beyond YouTube insiders, because YouTube, with its DIY style, was supposed to redefine business in the digital era, not mirror corrupt Hollywood practices like exploiting rising hot young things.“Creators are offered a hook of slightly higher ad revenue, but [they] don’t realize that in return for getting a bit more money from ad clicks, they are giving away the rights to what they created,” wrote Art Neill, the Executive Director of the nonprofit New Media Rights in an email to ReadWrite. “For a few pennies on the dollar, the content network, not the artist, controls the fate of what the artist has created,” added Neill.  A law student at Columbia University who knows his new media rights, Johnson promptly left his network when contract disputes arose.In a guest post last night on NewMediaRockstars, Johnson tells why he left Maker Studios. The network started shutting down his projects — his Web series and album — in an attempt to strong-arm him into signing a new “aggressive” contract, he said. The new contract demanded a higher cut of his AdSense revenue and 50% ownership of his hit show =3’s “intellectual property in perpetuity.”  Johnson said he’s coming forward (backed by photographs of his contract and communications with Maker Studios) because “I would only like for my Youtube [sic] Adsense [sic] account to be returned to me as promised so that I can move on with my life.” (And, he wrote, he “hope[s] that this story will make anyone in the Youtube [sic] community think twice about signing their Adsense [sic] over to a Youtube [sic] network or third party.”)For those unfamiliar with the YouTube industry, content creators use AdSense accounts with Google to capitalize on their work — AdSense being Google’s program that sells and serves ads, including ones on YouTube. When YouTubers sign with YouTube networks, which can be anything from a production studio, talent-management agency or distribution service, they hand control of their AdSense account to that network. So, Johnson isn’t kidding when he says he needs his AdSense account back to move on.A YouTuber since 2007 and the site’s first video creator to hit $1 million profits through YouTube’s partner program, in April 2011, Johnson enjoys an average of 4 million views on each of his main-channel videos.At an average CPM rate of $2 for every 1,000 views, Johnson makes roughly $8,000 per video on just his main channel. (Johnson could have a higher or lower CPM rate — YouTubers are forbidden from discussing their CPM rates.)In the two months since Johnson left Maker Studios, he’s made 14 videos on his primary channel, which, using the $2 CPM rate, comes to $112,000 in revenue. This is $112,000 revenue that Johnson’s work has generated for Maker Studios, despite his no longer being in the network.While we don’t know what cut Johnson was giving Maker Studios in his original contract, it certainly wasn’t all of his revenue. Remember, Maker Studios is currently keeping all of his revenue right now as they still have control over Johnson’s AdSense account. Folks have sued for less. For now, Johnson is just blogging and tweeting about his AdSense account, like so:“[email protected] holding a Youtuber’s[sic] Adsense[sic] account hostage after you promised to sign it back over is bad for your business.” Maker Studios has yet to respond to requests for comment, but Maker Studios CEO Danny Zappin did bother to send Johnson insulting text messages late last night, one that read, “You’re [sic] lack of integrity and character are sad. [Fornicate] you. Prepare for war … bitch.”Photo courtesy of a Ray William Johnson clip on YouTube 4 Keys to a Kid-Safe App 9 Books That Make Perfect Gifts for Industry Ex…last_img read more

Photos: Urban Meyer’s Basement Severely Flooded

first_imgUrban Meyer's has several feet of water in his flooded Basement.Urban Meyer Basement FloodedOhio State head coach Urban Meyer has a pretty decent contingency plan heading into the 2015-2016 season, given the fact that he has three quarterbacks capable of winning him another national championship. But he didn’t have much of a contingency plan for his basement after his sump pump broke this past weekend. Meyer’s basement flooded with what appears to be at least a foot of water after yet another rainstorm in Ohio. His wife, Shelley, tweeted out a photo of the damage – both before and after it was drained. Busted Coverage tipped us off:@mariawsyx6 @wsyx6 @SlingerWSYX6 @basementdoctor Darn! Too late for me, Maria. Mine flooded last night. #sumpumprobs pic.twitter.com/bRUW17BgBj— Shelley Meyer (@spinnershells) June 21, 2015Just home from baseball in Indy-the water AND the carpet AND the drywall are all gone. #sumpumpfail. #2muchrain pic.twitter.com/IWgOE446Xv— Shelley Meyer (@spinnershells) June 22, 2015In reality, it was probably time for an upgrade on some of the furniture down there anyway. Luckily, we’re pretty sure Meyer can afford to pay someone to fix it all.last_img read more

Unlike Basically Always The Cubs Didnt Lose

Hamann believes that Salah should win the award

first_imgMohamed Salah has been impressive for Liverpool this season in the Premier League and when voting for the best player of the season, it will be between him and Kevin De Bruyne.Dietmar Hamann believes that the Egypt international should win the award as he has been even better than the Belgian playmaker and he has to be rewarded for his amazing effort and performances throughout the whole season.The former Reds midfielder spoke about Salah’s season as he said, according to Goal:“I think the vote will be in next few weeks.”Jose Mourinho is sold on Lampard succeeding at Chelsea Tomás Pavel Ibarra Meda – September 14, 2019 Jose Mourinho wanted to give his two cents on Frank Lampard’s odds as the new Chelsea FC manager, he thinks he will succeed.There really…“KDB has been phenomenal since he joined Man City but purely on the goalscoring charts, the goals Salah has scored means if I had a vote it would be Mo Salah’s.”“He’s having a great run. Every time he shoots he scores.”“Yes, he has surprised me. I remember him from Basel where I thought he looked decent.

DAmbrosio says Inter has to recover points lost

first_imgThe Internazionale Milan footballer says the team is not happy after drawing 0-0 with Sassuolo and will look to get three points to their Torino visit.Internazionale Milan and Sassuolo drew 0-0 last weekend in the Italian Lega Serie A.And now, they are getting ready to play against Torino on Sunday.For Inter’s player Danilo D’Ambrosio, this is the perfect time to recover some points.“We’ll arrive in Turin still slightly irate because we should have won against Sassuolo, irrespective of whether we were playing in front of a full crowd or not,” he told the Inter’s official website.“Now, we absolutely have to recover the points we lost. The Granata are a tough side to face and play a game that they stick to whether they’re at home or on the road.”“They have several excellent strikers capable of playing international football, while their midfield is a complete one with many players who know Serie A well,” he added.“Therefore, they’re a difficult side to face.”Romelu Lukaku, Inter MilanLukaku backed to beat Ronaldo in Serie A scoring charts Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Former Inter Milan star Andy van der Meyde is confident Romelu Lukaku will outscore Cristiano Ronaldo in this season’s Serie A.The Nerazzurri are currently in the third position of the league table with 40 points.They are seven points behind second-place Napoli.And 16 points behind leaders Juventus.“For us, there is a difference finishing third as opposed to fourth,” D’Ambrosio explained.“When we talk about qualifying for the Champions League, we’re thinking about the top three. That said, trying to overtake Napoli should be our mentality from now until the end of the season.”“Confidence comes from winning – the more you win, the more confident you are. This team are prepared to play in three competitions – there’s no doubt about that,” he explained.“We want to go all the way in the Coppa Italia and Europa League.”last_img read more
