Will US News Weekly Work

first_imgU.S. News & World Report—having lost its status as a newsweekly in print—has launched a weekly digital magazine called U.S. News Weekly.”I don’t think the newsweekly concept’s outdated,” editor Brian Kelly told Portfolio. “I think it’s the delivery method that’s outdated.”But it remains to be seen if the concept—regardless of the delivery method—will work. Through June 2008, U.S. News saw its circulation fall 10.1 percent to 1.83 million, or about 170,000 copies short of its 2 million rate base guarantee.U.S. News Weekly will be delivered as a downloadable PDF and carries an annual subscription fee of $19.95 (a trial four-issue subscription is available for $3.95). Print subscribers to U.S. News will be able to download the digital edition for free, the publisher said. Sections in digital magazine, produced in partnership with Zinio, include “The Week in Washington,” “The Presidency,” “Washington Whispers” and “Blog Buzz”—repurposed content from U.S. News’ Thomas Jefferson Street blog.In November, U.S. News & World Report said it would scale back its print frequency to monthly.In 2008, U.S. News saw ad pages fall a staggering 32.4 percent, according to Publishers Information Bureau figures. It was the biggest year-over-year loss of any other title in the ailing newsweekly category.last_img read more

Blige’s memorable rendition of Elton John’s “Sorry Seems To Be The Hardest Word” brings powerful feelings of releasePhilip MerrillGRAMMYs Apr 6, 2018 – 4:50 pm GRAMMY winner Mary J. Blige has shaped contemporary R&B on the highest level. On April 6 the Elton John tribute album Revamp was released, and her reshaping of his classic “Sorry Seems To Be The Hardest Word” gives the song a soulful treatment that feels like it was waiting to be uncovered.”I specifically chose to sing ‘Sorry Seems To Be The Hardest Word’ because of how beautiful and sad the song is and it was also so cathartic for me to sing,” Blige explained to Billboard.Blige says her participation in the tribute album “is special to me not only because [Elton] is a good friend of mine but also because of my love for his songwriting and amazing songs.””Sorry Seems To Be The Hardest Word” was the breakout hit on John’s 1976 LP, Blue Moves, the last album in his initial series of collaborations with lyricist Bernie Taupin before they took a creative hiatus. Beyond being a break-up song, “Sorry …” seems to freeze a moment in time, hold an emotion and reinforce how letting it go through expression allows a person to move forward.Summing up the long-running partnership between John and Taupin, Blige commented, “Elton and Bernie’s songs, so inspiring and powerful, will continue to stand the test of time.”Be sure to tune in to “Elton John: I’m Still Standing — A GRAMMY Salute” on April 10 at 9 p.m. ET/PT on CBS. The two-hour concert special will feature performances by some of music’s biggest names, including Ed Sheeran, Alessia Cara, Miley Cyrus, Kesha, Lady Gaga, Miranda Lambert, John Legend, Little Big Town, Maren Morris, Sam Smith, SZA, and many more.

Watch the 2020 Chevy Corvettes trick GPS frontlift tech in action

first_img Sports Cars Coupes Hatchbacks Auto Tech Chevrolet This sounds like simple, smart bundling of two existing technologies — GPS and nose lift — to ultimately create a much more user-friendly product. Improbably enough, it’s safe to say this front lift tech is yet another reason why we’re incredibly eager to drive this new mid-engined C8 Corvette. We just hope the feature isn’t terribly expensive, or annoyingly bundled into expensive option packages on higher trims. 2020 Chevrolet Corvette blends the new and the familiar Will it scrape? Not by the high-tech hairs of its chinny chin chin. Chevrolet Of all the high-performance features on supercars and sports cars, nose-lift mechanisms are among our very favorite, and the new 2020 Chevrolet Corvette is promising a game-changing one. Admittedly, that may sound like a strange thing to get excited about in a high-powered sports car. However, this traditionally simple technology, which temporarily raises the front end of low-riding vehicles to clear objects like speed bumps and driveway aprons, can be a lifesaver (or at least the savior of front splitters, oil pans and embarrassing scraping noises). Simply put, a nose-lift feature makes living with a low-slung sports car like this sub-$60,000 Corvette much easier on a daily basis.In the mid-engined 2020 C8 Corvette Stingray’s case, the hydraulic front-lift feature is activated by pushing a switch on the center console adjacent to the gearshift buttons.So what makes the new C8 Corvette’s nose lift so different? In a word, GPS. The Corvette’s optional new front-lift mechanism, which raises the pointy end of the Vette by 1.6 inches in under 3 seconds, can be programmed to remember the GPS locations of up to 1,000 different obstacles, so it can automatically stand the chassis up on its tip-toes when approaching them. screen-shot-2019-07-19-at-10-03-51-amThe C8 will offer a hydraulics-based front-end suspension lift. Chevrolet Once an obstacle is programmed in, all you as the driver have to do is slow down as you approach them — the system works at speeds of up to 24 mph. That means if you live in a subdivision that’s littered with speed bumps or your driveway is a ski slope (like mine!), this Corvette has you covered. Of course, the nose lift feature can still be manually raised and lowered whether you max out those 1,000 GPS locations or not, but assuming this feature works well, the convenience factor could be off the charts. Check out this tech in action in the General Motors’ video below (that voiceover sounds suspiciously like Corvette chief engineer Tadge Juechter, by the way). 55 Photos Tags 2020 Chevy Corvette Stingray: C8 means mid-engined reinvention 2020 Chevy C8 Corvette: 11 key facts about the mid-engine Stingray 2020 Chevy C8 Corvette Stingray vs. C7, Ford GT and Porsche 911 2020 Chevy C8 Corvette may get hybrid or electric variants, report says 2020 Porsche 911 Carrera S: The complete package 2020 BMW 330e first drive: A plug-in 3 Series without compromise Share your voice 2017 Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid: First hybrid minivan wins on fuel economy Chevrolet READ MORE ABOUT THE MID-ENGINE 2020 CHEVY CORVETTE 0 Post a comment More From Roadshowlast_img read more
