Micciche: “130 people showed up for that meeting, and now we have community members coming to Juneau to help the administration understand that closing down Wildwood does not save money it actually costs the state money.” Micciche: “It’s a great statement from the community. I have never had this number of people come down on their own dime, these are not people with a lot of money,these are folks that realize that the community partnership with Wildwood is working. The partnership is stopping recidivism, turning lives around, and it is remarkably successful.” Facebook0TwitterEmailPrintFriendly分享Governor Mike Dunleavy’s plan to close a major portion of Wildwood Correctional Complex could have a major economic impact on the Kenai Peninsula. Roughly $12.8 million of the savings will come from a plan to send 500 inmates to prisons outside of Alaska. The other savings would come from closing the sentenced facilities of Wildwood Correctional Complex. The Department of Corrections made the announcement to employees at Wildwood via email shortly after Governor Dunleavy unveiled his upcoming budget plan. Correctional officers, former inmates, and staff at Wildwood Correctional Facility flooded the Borough Chambers to testify against the proposed closures at Wildwood prior to a town hall meeting in February. Senator Peter Micciche (R-K-Pen), has continually challenged the plan to close parts of Wildwood. Over the last week a number of Kenai Peninsula residents have flown to Juneau to advocate for Wildwood as well. According to budget documents, the move would eliminate 46 jobs and save the state roughly $6 million. Sarah Gallagher, Public Information Officer with DOC: “46 jobs will be impacted, but it is our goal to work with those individuals who wish to stay working within the Department of Corrections.”

Articles like this are giving my boss, the publisher of amuch smaller b2b house, all the motivation he needs to tighten the reins on ourstaff here. Great and timely news, but I’m afraid of the impact it will have onour small, highly profitable company.Kerry Smith—our CEO—on “Is it Time forB-to-B Publishers to Panic?”:Everyone I’ve spoken with in b-to-b management has theirantennae up and tuned for what the coming months may bring. Prudence inmanaging costs in the face of the uncertain moves by our customers is what weshould all be thinking about right now. However, this is also the time to rampup investment in new products and new initiatives. We should also resist thetemptation to cut costs at the expense of the long term viability of ourproducts.More panic talk:No one seems to address the most pertinent fact when itcomes to what’s impacting B2B publishing—the pressure on content. Statedbluntly, the original articles (almost always written by freelancers these daysfor many B2B magazines) around which some ads could be sandwiched worked outpretty well economically for print. Pay a freelancer $1500 bucks or something,sell $18,000 worth of ads around it. That just doesn’t work on the Web.Another:YES, content is king… So why do so many of us continue to give it away? Per-fumed again. Most perfume is made with synthetic andtoxic chemicals. The pages of the 2008 VF issue were laced with this toxic respiratorygoo. I’d looked forward to reading this issue, however as soon as I opened it Iknew it had to go immediately to the radioactive bin.On Henry Donahue’s “WhyNo One’s Gonna Buy Your Blog” post:I have a blog about Florida swampland for sale.On “MagazineAd Revenue, Pages Decline”: Anyone heard of a little thing called the Internet?Jack-tards! You people are dinosaurs. Ah, yes, the Internet. The user comments on FOLIOMag.com have been ramping uplately.

Apple is planning to sell subscriptions to some video services direct via its TV app rather than have users subscribe via apps individually, according to a report by Bloomberg.According to the report, which cites unnamed sources, Apple plans to roll out direct subscriptions next year as part of an attempt to boost its content subscription business.Bloomberg compared Apple’s strategy to the service offered by Amazon Channels, which enables users to sign up for premium video services by paying an annual subscription fee on top of their Amazon Prime subscription.Apple launched its TV app a couple of years ago after various stalled attempts to break into the subscription TV world. The company reportedly dropped plans to launch a live OTT TV service after failing to strike deals with potential media partners.The app currently presents a unified view of content that users can access, but they need to exit the Apple app and enter the ecosystem of the relevant third-party provider to subscribe to or purchase shows.The consumer electronics giant has struggled to break into the TV world in a big way. While sales of content via the iTunes store make it a major player in this market, it has failed to create a subscription offering to match that of rivals such as Amazon. Sales of its Apple TV box meanwhile trail those of rivals including Roku, Google Chromecast and Amazon Fire TV in the US.Apple is planning to release a range of family-friendly original TV shows next year, following meetings with producers and TV executives. However, the company has yet to confirm how it will distribute the shows.
