Crowdfunding Kickstarter Builds on an Old Source of Capital

first_img Folio: Why is Kickstarter, uniquely-suited for people looking to start this kind of project? Kreizman: I think so. One of the things I tell journalism creators is that aside from the making of “the thing,” the kinds of rewards that people find exciting are often experiential ones. It can be a Skype with a writer, or a coffee with an editor, that kind of thing. That creates just such a personal relationship, even more than a tote bag does. Kreizman: I would have to pull the particular numbers, but what I can say is, the number isn’t huge. There are many projects that don’t get any funding at all, and usually they are kind of like the “slush pile,” in book publishing. People throwing the spaghetti up against the wall and seeing what will stick. Kreizman: Yes. Most Kickstarter campaigns are to make “the thing,” whatever that thing is. Part of the Kickstarter experience really is following the progress of the creator and hearing about the ins and outs and the challenges of doing something creative, and then just being on the team when it actually comes to pass. Accounting for over $1 million of that sum, one-in-five of those journalism projects were magazines, such as artistic video game quarterly Kill Screen, which successfully completed a second round of funding in December. Maris Kreizman: I think it’s a couple of things. There are some slowdowns in federal grant money, and I also think people are concerned with the lack of diversity in their media, and Kickstarter is a place where anyone, if they work hard and do a great project, can find funding. I think the lack of a gatekeeper is really empowering. Folio: Is that ever a challenge, offering that experiential award? Does it limit the number of backers you can have? Kreizman: Just for background, journalism wasn’t officially a Kickstarter category until June of 2014. We broke it out and separated it from the overall publishing category. We’ve seen such a wonderful diversity in the kinds of projects considered journalism. We’ve seen magazines for sure. That’s a huge part of it. But we also have websites, podcasts, books, audio documentaries. I think one of the great freedoms on Kickstarter is that journalism has a lot of forms that it can come in. The other part about Kickstarter that is helpful is that creators can talk directly to the people who will be their fans and have an open line of communication with those people, which is so important. Kreizman: You’re able to limit the experiential awards by whatever you think your bandwidth is. But being a part of the email newsletter is scalable. So anyone who has backed the project can at least get the personal updates that way. Folio: What kind of factors in the industry are leading people to crowdfunding for journalism projects? Kreizman: Absolutely. Kickstarter has a survey tool that any creator can use at the end of their campaign. Most of the time, creators are asking for things like email or mailing addresses, but sometimes it’s, “How did you hear about us?” “What would you like to see?” Folio: connected with Kickstarter’s publishing outreach lead, Maris Kreizman, to learn more about the platform and whether crowdfunding exists as a viable means of lowering entry barriers and getting new titles off the ground—both in print and digital.center_img Overall, though, there’s a rule that any project that gets 20% of its funding is 79% likely to get the whole thing funded. It’s a critical mass kind of thing. Kickstarter is a great place to be discovered, but it certainly helps to helps to have your own audience to bring in with you, your core group. Folio: Is that something that’s a benefit to the people creating the projects, too? That direct line of communication. In many ways, this is simultaneously a new phenomenon and a continuation of a trend as old as the industry. Apart from personal funds and bank loans, “friends, family, and fools” have long been the principal source of early-stage financing for startups. The nuance is that, like the web itself, crowdfunding sites like Kickstarter provide would-be publishers the ability to turn anyone with an internet connection and a bank account into a friend (or a fool). Folio: Is it common for backers to take an active role in the actual production of whatever project comes out of the campaign? Kreizman: I don’t imagine so. One of the trends I’ve been seeing a lot is that many of these publications are able to pay their writers because of Kickstarter campaigns, which is something I feel really passionate about. A January study conducted by the Pew Research Center found that, since Kickstarter launched in 2009, 658 journalism projects were successfully financed on the crowdfunding platform—raising a total of $6.3 million. Folio: Are you seeing that it’s a lot of projects who just need a push to get off the ground, or projects whose entire business model is going to be centered around crowdfunding? Folio: Would there be any alternative for these types of projects, if it weren’t for Kickstarter? Folio: That ability to be involved from the very beginning and follow the progress, does that just naturally breed a lot more audience loyalty? Kreizman: I think we’ve seen both. We’ve seen a lot of wonderful magazines launch on Kickstarter. We’ve also seen a lot come back to fund their second issue. Folio: What’s the success rate like for journalism projects?last_img read more

Hundreds of millions more in budget cuts recommended

first_imgDownload audioThe Legislature completed the first stage of its annual budget process today. House Finance Subcommittees recommended more than $120 million more in cuts on top of the 100 million that Governor Bill Walker proposed.Health and Social Services was the department that received the deepest cuts. They include eliminating $5.18 million in cash assistance to seniors, and three million in behavioral health grants.Representative David Guttenberg, a Fairbanks Democrat, opposes the cuts. He says reducing treatment of people with addictions will cost the state more in the long run.“These grants will clearly prevent increases in costs in other places, in the courts, in the Department of Law, in our prisons, in our various higher end costs,” said Guttenburg. “Dealing with folks that have issues and troubles at the most efficient place to touch them, is something that we need to do.”Overall recommended cuts to Health and Social Services total forty-one million dollars, roughly one-third of all cuts that finance subcommittees recommend.Representative Dan Saddler, an Eagle River Republican, compared the difficulties faced by those with addictions to the choices the Legislature faces.“There are many unfortunate and difficult challenges we face in life and running away from them in a bottle or a needle is not the way to solve them,” Saddler said. “The way to get through problems is to face the difficult choices and to make difficult choices.  And I think that is what we’re doing in this budget, and that’s what we’re doing in this particular allocation.  In addition to a heroin crisis in Alaska, we have a fiscal crisis in Alaska. And I think we are making the difficult, but responsible decisions to scale our resources to meet our needs the best way we can.”Health and Social Services Commissioner Valerie Davidson says she’ll be working to inform legislators about the exact effects of the proposed cuts before the entire Legislature finishes its work on the budget this spring.“We’ll definitely continue to work with members of the Legislature,” said Davidson. “We realize that cuts have to be made. And our job is to make sure that everybody understands the implications of the cuts that are being made.”Economist Gunnar Knapp says that budget cuts will have broader impacts on Alaska’s economy, along with the direct effect on services.Knapp told the budget committee on Thursday that for every one-hundred million dollars in broad-based cuts to state government, the state will lose 1,260 jobs and $115 million in income.In comparison,  introducing a similar amount in income taxes would impact fewer jobs, but could mean 20% more lost income.Knapp urged legislators to close the state’s$3.5 billion budget shortfall.The smoothest transition is to make a significant start on reducing the deficit this year. Not making major progress this year would have a big impact. The rating companies have promised that they would further downgrade our credit ratings and then there would be impacts due to a loss of business confidence and reduced private investment.The Legislature will hear public testimony on the budget Feb. 29 to March 3 at locations across the state.last_img read more

Market watch Sensex rebounds by 171 points gold prices up rupee firm

first_imgThe S&P BSE Sensex rebounded by 171 points on Wednesday despite weakness in other Asian markets amid renewed worries over slowdown in China.The Sensex closed at 25,822 points while the 50-share Nifty rose by 34 points, or 0.43%, to end at 7,845 points.Nineteen of the 30 Sensex components ended in the green; Lupin, M&M, Vedanta, HDFC Bank, ITC, ICICI Bank and SBI were the top gainers. The BSE bankex index was the biggest gainer among sectoral indices, ending 1.4% up.”After going through a deeper cut on Tuesday, indices managed to smartly recoup some losses. However, Wednesday’s session just increases the uncertainty in the short term trend. Volatility could increase again on Thursday on account of F&O expiry. Headwinds like weakening rupee and slowdown in China will remain issues investors will have to deal with in the near term,” said Amar Ambani, Head of Research, IIFL.A data showed manufacturing activity in China, the world’s second largest economy, fell to its lowest levels since March 2009. The Chinese flash Caixin PMI manufacturing index fell to 47 in September compared to 47.3 in the previous month.”The number does nothing to ease the fears about the Chinese economy at the moment,” said Dankse Bank in a note.”The explosions in Tianjin in early August are said to have affected production in a manufacturing-heavy area of China, which may have added to the weakness,” the note added.Tracking the data, the Chinese equity index Shanghai Composite ended 2.19% lower at 3,115. The disappointing data also triggered sell-off in other Asian markets. While Japan’s Nikkei fell by nearly 2%, Hong Kong’s Hang Seng index closed 2.2% down.However, a rebound in the European markets led by rising crude oil prices helped Indian stock markets to post a recovery later in the day. Crude oil rose on reports of a fall in US oil stocks despite renewed concerns over economic growth in China. Brent crude oil prices traded just below $50 per barrel.Gold prices also rebounded by Rs 30 to Rs 26,540 per 10 grams on the back of firming metal prices in international markets and improved demand from jewellers ahead of the wedding season. But the silver prices plunged by Rs 655 to close at Rs 35,175 per kg.The rupee strengthened to 65.96 against the US dollar, paring all the losses witnessed in the morning session. A recovery in the rupee was led by a sharp rebound in domestic equity markets.last_img read more

Police Reform Unfolding Slowly

first_imgThe death of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin and the successive deaths of unarmed Blacks at the hands of police and trigger-happy civilians have pricked the American conscience and made criminal justice reform the current cause célèbre. Despite clamoring calls for reform and recommendations from government agencies and civil rights organizations, however, real change – so far – has been negligible, advocates say.“We’re seeing some movement to address these concerns but they are not going far enough,” said Hilary Shelton, the NAACP’s Washington Bureau director and senior vice president for advocacy and policy. He added, “Until we hear about local police departments and city councils moving to create more effective policy around policing then we’re still missing the point.”Tanya Clay House, public policy director for the Lawyers’ Committee for Civil Rights Under Law said it is difficult to “directly identify” which police departments are really implementing changes and that reform efforts are mostly at the review stage.“I think we’re still trying to figure out how to effectively guide agencies how to implement these guidelines,” she said.She added, “In some places you need to have a change in the charter for police agencies” and other legislative changes and “that could be a hold-up.”Most of the movement seems to be occurring around outfitting police officers with body-worn cameras, though that, too, has been bogged down with matters of legality, funding, and logistics. Ferguson, Mo.; Arizona, Florida, California, Texas, Baltimore, Kansas and other jurisdictions either already have body cameras or are investigating its use. Just last week, the D.C. Council held a hearing on the matter. Most seem to agree it is a useful tool for providing accountability, transparency, and accuracy in interactions between the public and police. However, advocates warn, that is but a small part of the solution.“Body cameras are not a panacea,” House said. “It is kind of that low-hanging fruit that many agencies will take – and we’re not opposed to that, but they’re not going to get away with just doing that.”“What we are talking about is changing the very premise of policing in America,” she added, “and body cameras cannot do that.”Most officials and activists agree that the slow pace of progress on police reform could be attributable to the deeply entrenched nature of the problem. “We’ve had to deal with aspects of police misconduct and brutality for decades,” said Shelton. “In Souls of Black Folk, W.E.B. DuBois talked about law enforcement as one of the biggest challenges for African Americans.”The real difference, today, is the prevalence of mobile recording devices and social media which have brought the ongoing travesty from the darkness into the light.“But for that, a great many people would not be willing to acknowledge there is a different relationship between African-American communities and police and White and upper-middle-class communities and police,” said House.For example, she said, “many urban communities are over-policed” with disproportionately high numbers of police officers for their populations compared to significantly fewer officers in low-minority, jurisdictions with much larger populations.“Police continue to use over-policing of communities for minor incidents out of a belief that it would deter major crimes. But it’s not working. If anything, it leads to higher incidents of racial profiling and instead of communities of color looking up to police, they fear police,” House said.Shelton supported that statement, saying in the NAACP’s discussions with different Black communities, many say that “police officers there appear like an occupying force and not as if they are there to protect and serve. The residents say they felt like they were under siege.”Meanwhile, he added, Blacks in majority-White communities reported being targeted and racially profiled as if “officers were there to maintain segregation.”“The relationship between police and communities of color have always been somewhat strained,” acknowledged Cedric Alexander, president of The National Association of Black Law Enforcement Executives. “A great deal of work needs to be done to continue – and in some cases begin – to create relationships between police and communities.”For example, Alexander said, in DeKalb County, Ga., where he is the chief of police, “We have a department that demographically reflects the community. We have a department that is fully engaged in community meetings. Members of the community have access to all precinct commanders. And the department has relationships with the leaders of the county and those in the community. Therefore, even when we have our challenges, it becomes easier to work through.”Alexander also cited Indianapolis, Ind. and Fort Lauderdale, Fla. as jurisdictions where the police departments have made concerted efforts to foster amicable relationships between communities and law enforcement.Besides fostering good relations, officer training – including standard guidelines for use of force, diversity awareness and sensitivity, etc. – is also a must, Alexander said.Building public trust and ongoing officer training were among the recommendations included in the March 2015 interim report from President Obama’s Task Force on 21st Century Policing. The use of body-worn cameras among police officers and other technology was also recommended. And, in December, the president proposed a three-year $263 million investment package to provide 50,000 body-worn cameras, a $75 million outlay that states and local jurisdictions would have to match; expand training for law enforcement agencies; and supply other resources needed to implement reform.But Congress also has an important role to play, House said. “There’s legislation that can be passed to help facilitate this process. It’s not just a state responsibility,” she said.“We all can do something,” she said of the general public. “We cannot allow entire communities to be trapped and targeted and just stand by. Start contacting your state elected officials and members of Congress; get engaged through social media or any forum you have and say something. Everybody doesn’t have to march, just do one thing to make a change.”last_img read more

first_imgNews | September 29, 2009 EARLY Act Legislation for Breast Cancer Prevention Gains Momentum September 29, 2009 – The campaign to pass the EARLY Act and raise awareness about breast cancer in young adult women generated momentum at a recent congressional reception on Capitol Hill.The EARLY Act would implement a national education campaign about the risks that young adult women (under 45) face from breast cancer. The bill, with $9 million per year in proposed funding for five years, would also provide assistance to young women who have the disease.The legislation has generated widespread support both in Congress and from national organizations, including the Susan G. Komen Foundation and Breast Cancer Network of Strength (formerly Y-Me). The legislation has over 365 cosponsors in the House of Representatives and over 30 in the Senate.Kathryn Tunstall, former chairman of the Board and currently chair of the clinical advisory panel of NeoMatrix, told the audience that her experience as a two-time breast cancer survivor had inspired her to take a leadership role at NeoMatrix. The company provides the HALO Breast Pap Test, a new, 5-minute, noninvasive test that helps determine an individual woman’s risk of developing breast cancer.As part of its support for the EARLY Act, NeoMatrix has launched a website,, that educates viewers about the EARLY Act and breast cancer risk. The site provides details on the EARLY Act and the breast cancer risks faced by younger women. It also has tools for breast cancer risk assessment and prevention, including information about HALO.Also speaking at the Congressional Reception, which was organized by the nonprofit Tigerlily Foundation and cosponsored by NeoMatrix, was Gail Lebovic, M.D., president of the American Society of Breast Disease.The Capitol Hill event, which drew approximately 200 people, was held in the Rayburn building of the House of Representatives immediately before Pres. Obama’s speech to the Congress on healthcare reform. Among other speakers at the Tigerlily event were Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D.-Fla.), author of the legislation; Rep.

Mexico struggles to sort selfdefense forces from cartels as players switch sides

first_imgRelated posts:Mexico captures most-wanted ‘drug-cartel kingpin’ Suspected Colombian cartel leader secretly flown out of Costa Rica on DEA plane Undermining Mexico: How ‘El Chapo’ built a criminal empire, and escaped prison, by digging deep VIDEO: Hilarious parody of ‘El Chapo’ prison escape TEPALCATEPEC, Mexico – For a man who faked his own death by posing with red paint running down his neck and who has recorded a video tell-all to be sent to the Drug Enforcement Administration in the event he is murdered, José Santiago Valencia Sandoval seems to lead a remarkably stress-free life.A jolly, beer-swilling bear of a man, he spends his time teaching his Aztec horse to prance, mounting deer heads on his living room wall and driving around in an armored Suburban pockmarked with bullet holes.A former tough for the Knights Templar cartel, Valencia, 42, is a member of one of the self-defense militias that have seized control in much of the state of Michoacán – a ragtag collection of gunmen the Mexican government is struggling to control.Valencia might seem at ease because his bizarre story is almost run-of-the mill here: Switching sides to survive in this conflict is as normal as swapping players on a soccer team. For the government, which is trying to establish its authority, that fluidity risks entrusting security to some of those they’ve been fighting for years.“There are so many of them,” Valencia said. “They were Knights before, and now they are self-defense militiamen. They felt they had lost, so they switched sides. They put on a white shirt, and just like that — ‘Long live the militia!’ ”From afar, the events in Michoacán sometimes seem like a made-for-TV tale, an uplifting story of the downtrodden lime and avocado farmers who banded together to throw off the yoke of the murderous drug cartel. Up close, the reality is less inspiring. Many of the gun-toting young men manning roadside checkpoints once served as spotters or assassins for the very cartels now considered their enemies.Most of the former gangsters who have switched sides are simply fair-weather gunmen, “ready to fall behind whomever seems most powerful,” said the Rev. Javier Cortes, a priest in the local diocese in Apatzingán, the city at the center of the militia war. “These young men are simply going along with whoever is willing to pay them.”At the movement’s higher levels, personal rivalries and power-grabs have become so intense that they could provoke a new round of violence.Leaders who stand shoulder-to-shoulder at news conferences one day accuse each other of being criminals the next. José Manuel Mireles, the mustachioed surgeon who was once the militia movement’s most respected figure, has been disowned by several of his former comrades, who claim he is sick in the head and stealing money. Mireles in turn accuses them of being paid off by a rival out-of-state cartel, the New Generation, and of using the cover of the government-approved neighborhood watch to get a foothold in Michoacán.Mexican authorities have arrested one prominent militia leader, Hipolito Mora, on charges of participating in the murder of two rival vigilantes. And they are investigating Mireles on suspicion of being linked to five deaths.One group of vigilantes, who call themselves “H3,” has been accused of operating as a mini-cartel. Government officials are investigating their leaders, men called “the Viagra Brothers,” but are not describing them as a new drug-running group. José Santiago Valencia Sandoval, seen May 9, 2014 in Tepalcatepec, Mexico, left the Knights Templar cartel to join a militia when it formed in his community. Now he thinks the movement has been corrupted by another drug group and by those seeking power. Photo for The Washington Post by Dominic Bracco II/PrimeSorting the noble from the criminal has become almost impossible. The men who have taken the law into their own hands carry military-grade weapons but don’t wear uniforms. Some identify themselves with yellow ribbons on gun barrels, homemade militia T-shirts or decals on their trucks. The vigilantes from Tancitaro use an avocado logo; an Apatzingán group goes with cattle and limes. At a cattle corral last week, Mireles used a marker to sign new militia T-shirts to certify that they were legit. Since no one had given him the job as militia leader, he said, “can anyone take it away?”Whatever the costume, the backgrounds and allegiances of these disparate armed factions remain, in most cases, a mystery. The Mexican government’s plan, to convert the vigilantes into a rural police force with uniforms and registered weapons, is in part an attempt to understand who they are. The government’s point man on Michoacán, Alfredo Castillo, said this past week that authorities had captured 155 cartel members posing as militiamen.“It’s a terrible confusion to live under,” said Cortes, the priest.In 2001, Valencia returned to Tepalcatepec after five years of applying drywall and painting houses outside Yakima, Washington. As he worked at fattening cattle and buying and selling land, he witnessed the encroaching drug war.Valencia was vague about his own beginnings in cartel life, although one defining event, he said, took place Oct. 15, 2010, when two teenagers he held dear were shot by a drug trafficker from Jalisco.“Their parents had fed me, they gave me work. I was raised among them. They used to call me uncle,” he said. “So when they were killed, like all the cabrones who have courage in their veins, I went to fight against this injustice.”He allied himself with the La Familia cartel, itself originally a group of vigilantes intent on restoring order, and received its protection as he pursued his revenge. When the cartel split and some of its leaders formed the Knights Templar, Valencia said he got conscripted by force into the new gang. On the sidewalk outside a school, he recalled, a guy put a gun to his head and told him, “You’re screwed.”Valencia’s job, he said, was to patrol the border of Knights Templar territory and that of the Jalisco cartel, making sure nobody crossed. He was not allowed to leave the state or buy a plane ticket without the permission of his cartel boss.He got to know some of Mexico’s most-wanted men. He chatted with Servando “La Tuta” Gómez, currently the subject of a manhunt in the caves of western Michoacán, while at a cockfight. He claimed that Nazario Moreno, the Templars’ cultish figurehead who was killed by Mexican marines this year, bragged to him about murdering 3,000 men. He learned about their unbelievable revenue, from stealing fuel and re-selling it by force to gas stations to taxing shipments of iron ore to China. Hundreds of assault rifles were delivered to a newly created rural police unit in Tepalcatepec, Michoacán State, Mexico, on May 10, 2014. Ronaldo Schemidt/AFPValencia admitted to killing men but said it was in combat, not assassination-style. At one point, being tipped off that a hit man had been dispatched for him, he staged his own death. In the photo he had sent to his enemy, he sits in a plastic chair, his head slumped back with red paint all over his neck. He recorded a video of himself on his living room couch naming his various associates with drug and mafia connections and sent it to his relatives living in the United States so they can get it to authorities if he is killed.Never enamored with Knights Templar life, Valencia switched quickly to the militia when it first formed in his town.“At first, I didn’t want him here with us,” Mireles said of Valencia. “But he saved my life the first time we got in a gunfight. Do you think I’m going to wish something bad for him? Never.”Valencia was pleased with the movement for a while and with its early success driving back his former cartel. But now he believes it has been corrupted by another drug group and those obsessed with power.“The movement is not yet totally rotten,” he said. “But if we don’t do something, it’s going to rot.”Washington Post correspondents Dominic Bracco and Gabriela Martinez contributed to this report.© 2014, The Washington Post Facebook Commentslast_img read more
