Printer Launches Ad Portal

first_imgQuad/Graphics, the Sussex, Wisconsin-based printer, has launched a Web-based advertising portal, AdShuttle.com, that it says will streamline the process of submitting print ads for advertisers and ad agencies, and for the printers and publishers that handle them.The three-step process, Quad says, insures that advertisers and/or agencies receive immediate feedback on the quality of their ad file, and publishers and printers receive pre-flighted ads that are ready for print.Once an ad is submitted electronically via the AdShuttle Web site, the files are cropped to the publisher’s specs and run through a pre-flight check, “virtually eliminating the hassles involved with requesting and sending new files,” Quad says.Publishers are then able to accept or reject the ads, or send them via FTP to their printer.last_img read more

Worth Slashes 45 Percent of Workforce

first_imgSandow Media has eliminated roughly 45 percent of the workforce at New York City-based luxury wealth investment magazine Worth, reducing its staff from 18 to 8.Citing an advertising decline, Sandow said it plans to relaunch the magazine and relocate it to it the company’s headquarters in Boca Raton, Florida, according to a Reuters news report. Editorial, sales and marketing positions were affected by the cuts, the report said. Editor-in-chief Richard Bradley, who informed staffers of the layoffs on Tuesday, remains with the magazine. According to its Web site, Worth carries a circulation of 100,000. A Sandow Media spokesperson could not be immediately reached for comment.Early last year, Sandow purchased Worth from Robb Report publisher CurtCo Media for an undisclosed sum. Sandow was founded in 2002 and publishes New Beauty and Luxe magazines.last_img read more

A Death Knell for the Newspaper Business

first_imgTrade magazines can be a barometer of the health of an industry. Journalistically, they cover the health, troubles and trends in an industry. As businesses, they sell advertising to an industry’s suppliers. In a complex symbiotic relationship, trade magazines rely on suppliers to an industry for their own health, while suppliers rely on the business health of the readers of a trade magazine. When all is in harmony, it’s a virtuous circle. Businesses thrive as the industry’s trade press provides rich information that fuels still more success. This creates demand and interest among still more suppliers, who grow as they find new customers. As the suppliers grow and proliferate, they spend more money on marketing in the trade press, which thrives, and which then provides more information to the market. Yesterday, Nielsen Business Media reported that Editor & Publisher was shutting down. Clearly, Nielsen concluded that the supplier community serving the newspaper industry can no longer sustain a media business that reports on the newspaper industry. When you get to the point where the suppliers have dwindled—or not enough of them believe in the value of using a third-party media source for the marketing—you’ve got a problem.And that tells us a lot about the state of the newspaper industry. Say what you will about the value of newspapers, and in their heyday—virtually the entire 20th century—they were all powerful. Even now, the journalism produced by newspapers is unmatched. As a force for democracy, and an essential ingredient for a thriving society, newspaper journalism is as vital as ever and lives on—just online.As a technology, however, it’s all over. Newspapers are dinosaurs. Take the “paper” out of “newspapers.” The world has passed the technology by. What used to be fresh at the doorstep in the morning is now, at best, several hours old. The Web does all the things newspapers used to do, circa 1920, but better, plus a hundred other things too.This process of transformation is causing enormous disruption and pain. But in its wake come thousands of small entrepreneurial businesses as well as leaner, better old-line newspaper companies that are Internet-centric. One victim of the transformation is Editor & Publisher, which is a bit ironic, given that E&P itself transformed into an online-centric business several years ago. In recent years it has been an award-winning, game-changing media brand. Just not enough of a business for Nielsen Business Media. But its editor, Greg Mitchell, is well regarded, and what didn’t work for Nielsen perhaps could work for Mitchell in another context.Great editors, after all, are brands unto themselves.last_img read more

Time Inc Scraps All You Purchases HelloGiggles

first_img “All You’s launch in 2004 was an industry-first and one of which we remain incredibly proud,” writes Webster. “More recently, All You has faced a particularly difficult landscape in the shopper marketing space as well as endemic newsstand challenges.” Founded in 2004, the coupon-packed All You once enjoyed an exclusive distribution agreement with retailer Walmart, which provided the magazine prominent placement on newsstands and coordinated promotions in its stores. That agreement ended in 2014, and All You began targeting non-exclusive deals with other major retailers, including Target and CVS. Distribution fell from a peak of over 400,000 in 2012 to 280,000 in June of 2015, according to data from the Alliance for Audited Media. “With its passionate, highly-engaged audience and quality editorial voice, HelloGiggles is a great fit for our entertainment portfolio,” Time Inc. chairman and CEO Joe Ripp says in an official release. “We see the opportunity for HelloGiggles to continue to evolve and grow as a multimedia content business.” On Friday, Adweek reported that Time Inc. was close to acquiring Jane Pratt’s digital-only titles xoJane and xoVain, which would further bolster Time’s appeal to a young, female audience. Co-founded in 2011 by Zooey Descahnel, Sophia Rivka Rossi and Molly McAleer, the site reaches more than 17 million unique monthly visitors, according to Google Analytics. HelloGiggles will join Time’s entertainment portfolio, which includes People and Entertainment Weekly. “Joining Time Inc. is an amazing opportunity to grow our brand and expand our message,” says Rossi. “Becoming part of the iconic People and Entertainment Weekly family is an extremely exciting step for us.” Since being spun off from Time Warner in 2014, Time Inc. has made moves to expand its brand portfolio, content and audiences in an effort to develop new revenue streams, including purchasing live event and branding platform inVNT, creating youth and amateur-oriented Sports Illustrated Play and starting a U.S. version of British design and lifestyle title Wallpaper*. Although under Time’s entertainment umbrella, HelloGiggles will continue to operate as a separate company. Rossi will maintain her role as CEO and report to Rich Battista, executive vice president of Time Inc. and president of People, Entertainment Weekly and People en Español. Deschanel will also stay on as chief creative officer, and the company will remain in its current headquarters in Los Angeles. About 30 jobs will be eliminated after the closure, 20 editorial and ten on the business side, according to the New York Post. Clare McHugh will remain with Time as group editor of Essence, Health, Sunset and This Old House. Greg Schumann will also continue as group publisher of Southern Living, Sunset and Coastal Living. All You is the first of Time’s print titles to close since Joe Ripp took over as CEO in 2013. Time Inc. will shut down women’s shopping magazine All You following the publication of its December 2015 issue, according to an announcement by executive vice president Evelyn Webster. AllYou.com will cease operations at the end of the calendar year. The move to shut the print title comes on the same day that Time purchased HelloGiggles, a digitally-oriented young women’s lifestyle magazine, in an effort to solidify its grasp of female millennials.last_img read more

Law360 Editorial Staff Opts to Unionize

first_img In a release, The NewsGuild said that Law360 employees are also concerned about uncompetitive pay, overtime practices, strict story quotas and “a general lack of transparency in the workplace.” A spokesperson for The NewsGuild said that staff started organizing after the publisher enforced a non-compete agreement against a recently departed employee. Law360 and LexisNexis Group did not return requests for comments. The NewsGuild of New York represents editorial staffs at Time Inc., The New York Times, The Nation, and The Daily Beast, among others. This morning, editorial staff at legal news website Law360 officially petitioned to join The NewsGuild of New York, a trade union that represents journalists and other media professionals. Nearly 80 percent of the 132 national reporters, editors, news assistants and apprentices signed on to a drive for representation. In June, Law360 discontinued the use of non-compete agreements for editorial employees following an investigation by the New York attorney general’s labor bureau into whether such agreements violate state labor laws. Law360 is owned by LexisNexis Group, a subsidiary of RELX Group. Management has until Wednesday to recognize the request before the staff moves forward with an official vote.last_img read more

Newsstand Declines Continue but Bright Spots Remain

first_img As far as retail outlets go, Supermarkets still account for the lion’s share of newsstand sales, but Supercenters (Walmart, Target, etc.) and Bookstores are gaining ground. The struggle to compete for shelf space in Drug and Convenience stores continues, where units sold fell 21.7 and 27.3 percent, respectively. No class of retail outlets did better in the first half of 2016 than they did last year, but Supercenters performed the best, down just six percent in units and 0.9 percent in dollar sales. Some selected winners (increase in units sold): Harvard Business Review (4.2 percent) The Celebrity and Women’s categories, which together account for 36.4 percent of all newsstand sales, continue to bear the brunt of the attrition. Both declined 14.3 percent in units sold, far outpacing industry averages. The Home/Garden (-15.2 percent), and Health/Fitness (-15.1 percent) categories experienced similar declines. Although a less significant portion of the market, the Sports, Automotive, Crafts, and Business/Finance categories also saw double-digit declines in both dollar sales and units. Country Living – Hearst (6.4 percent) On a more positive note, General Interest magazines actually increased significantly in both dollar sales and units sold, up 22.5 and 23.6 percent, respectively, compared to the first half of last year. Likewise, Entertainment magazines also jumped, up 2.3 percent in units sold and 14.1 percent in dollar sales, a clear indication that consumers have not been repelled by significantly increased cover prices. Source: MagNet Crochet World – Annie’s Publishing (10.8 percent) As always, though, macro trends don’t tell the whole story. When breaking down the data, certain bright spots (and areas of concern) emerge. The Food/Wine category, which alone accounted for 7.6 percent of all newsstand sales and continues to gain market share, fared comparatively well, down just 6.3 percent in units sold and 2.5 percent in dollar sales. This time around, MagNet chose to highlight a selection of magazines that increased their newsstand business in the first half of 2016. Guns & Ammo – Outdoors Sportsman Group (17.8 percent) The steady decline of the North American newsstand continued in the first half of 2016, down 10.8 percent in units sold compared to the same period last year, according to the latest figures from MagNet. Closer – Bauer Publishing (6.5 percent) First for Women – Bauer Publishing (3.8 percent) Simply Crochet – Future US (13.9 percent) Playboy – Playboy Enterprises (17.8 percent) An increase in average cover price — from $5.28 in the first half of 2015 to $5.55 this year — helped mitigate declines in dollar sales, which dipped just 6.2 percent. That’s roughly consistent with the drop-offs over the previous two quarters, and certainly an improvement over the 13 percent decrease in revenue observed in 2015. The Atlantic – Atlantic Media (8.9 percent)last_img read more

Hearst Acquires Connecticut Magazine

first_imgHearst Corp., in a move mostly related to consolidation in the newspaper industry, this week acquired Connecticut Magazine, a 45-year-old brand and the only statewide consumer magazine.  Connecticut Magazine was founded in 1971, carving out a statewide presence in a state that for its small size has many relatively unrelated micro-sections and many locally-oriented magazines serving those areas. The brand came as part of Hearst’s acquisition of the Connecticut assets of 21st Century Media Newspaper LLC, a unit of Digital First Media. Digital First is a sprawling management company based in Denver that has numerous newspaper and other media holdings.  In a statement, Hearst said the new properties have a combined weekly circulation of more than 470,000 households and a monthly digital reach of 1.4 million unique visitors. They will become part of Hearst Newspapers’ Connecticut Media Group. In the Connecticut deal, Connecticut Magazine came to Hearst along with three daily newspapers, including the New Haven Register. Hearst now has newspapers in Stamford, Danbury, Greenwich, Norwalk, Bridgeport, New Haven and Middletown, among the state’s larger cities.last_img read more

Cliff Burtons Metallica Royalties Fund Music Scholarship Program

I think Cliff probably would have done that with his money, because he was not against education by any means. He liked it very much.”Cliff’s bass playing was inventive, distinctive and unhinged, which is perhaps most prominent in the bass-driven instrumental “Anesthesia (Pulling Teeth)” from Metallica’s 1983 debut album, Kill ‘Em All. When Metallica was inducted into the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame in 2009, the band asked Ray Burton to join them onstage to accept the award.The elder Burton also recalled the first time his son brought home a royalty check for Kill ‘Em All, saying, “I had absolutely no idea what that album meant. We realized that things had a possibility of really getting big when Cliff got his first royalty check. I think it was $1,500. He said, ‘Mom and dad, here’s my first check. Come on, I’ll take you out to dinner tonight.’One thing is clear: Cliff Burton’s contributions, both through his music and through his father’s generosity, continue to make a difference in our world.Red Hot Chili Peppers Set For Music Education Fundraiserlast_img read more

His impressive rise to power from an unpaid record label intern to imprint label owner to music industry mogul — along the way becoming the second wealthiest hip-hop artist in history (recently dethroned from the No. 1 spot by Jay-Z) — has now been encapsulated in Can’t Stop Won’t Stop: A Bad Boy Story,  an intriguing feature-length documentary film that is the subject of the latest episode of “Required Listening,” the music podcast produced by HowStuffWorks and the GRAMMY Museum in partnership with the Recording Academy.Produced by Live Nation film/TV division head Heather Parry, the film also centers around the Brooklyn, N.Y., show dates of the 2016 Bad Boy Family Reunion Tour, which saw Diddy rejoined with artists such as Lil’ Kim, Faith Evans, Carl Thomas, French Montana, and others whose careers he helped build in the early days of Bad Boy Entertainment. Director Daniel Kaufman has described the documentary as, “a fierce pursuit of the American dream.””[The film] really just really shows the embodiment of the dream and the hustle, and you get to see that through an unfiltered lens.”  —​ Sean “Diddy” Combs”I think the title’s so appropriate,” said Parry of the film. “Because Puff literally doesn’t stop, doesn’t take no for an answer. I would sum it up like it’s a beautiful, legendary history of a man that just doesn’t quit …and I think that is the American dream.”Reflecting on how she got involved in the project, Parry explains that she and Diddy first met over two decades earlier, when she was interning at MTV. Years later, when the time came for Diddy to put together his Bad Boy Family Reunion Tour, Parry herself had just started the then-brand-new Live Nation Productions film division of the entertainment conglomerate.  When the word came down that Live Nation would be promoting Diddy’s tour, the decision to put a crew together to document the experience almost made itself.”We moved at lightning speed. We decided to do [the film] and we had like three weeks to find a director, and put it on it, and go.” —​ Heather Parry”I think of my biggest records, or hits, or success has been when the audience is able to be vulnerable,” Diddy explained, responding to GRAMMY Museum Executive Director and “Required Listening” host Scott Goldman’s praise for the depth of insight and emotion the film was able to achieve. “I knew if I was going to step out in this type of medium …I just wanted to tell the truth.”Digging deeper into the broader goals behind creating Can’t Stop Won’t Stop, Diddy added, “I wanted to change the narrative, just in general, of how hip-hop is perceived, and also – we as black men and women – how we’re perceived based on what we see through media or the constant images of negativity that we see. I wanted to change the narrative and show the new narrative of strength, of black strength, of black excellence, of shining a positive light on the positive things that we do, the magic that we have, the brilliance that we have, and do it in an unapologetic way.”center_img Cold War Kids and Scott GoldmanPhoto: Rebecca Sapp/WireImage.com Listen: Cold War Kids | “Required Listening” Diddy, Heather Parry | “Required Listening” “Required Listening” Billy Porter Jr. Imagine DragonsPhoto: Alison Buck/Getty Images I’m With HerPhoto: Jason Kempin/AMA/Getty Images Scott Goldman and Dan AuerbachPhoto: Alison Buck/Getty Images Photo: Rebecca Sapp/WireImage.com Weezer and Scott Goldman (right)Photo: Rebecca Sapp/WireImage.com Facebook Cold War Kids and Scott GoldmanPhoto: Rebecca Sapp/WireImage.com “Required Listening” On Julia Michaels’ “Issues” Alessia Cara and Scott GoldmanPhoto: Rebecca Sapp/WireImage.com Listen: Jeff Lynne | “Required Listening” Twitter I’m With Her | “Required Listening” “Required Listening” Dan Auerbach “Required Listening” Billy Porter Jr. (L-R) Heather Parry, Sean “Diddy” Combs, Scott GoldmanPhoto: Rebecca Sapp/Getty Images Sheryl Crow and Scott GoldmanPhoto: Timothy Norris/WireImage.com News Billy Porter Jr. and Scott GoldmanPhoto: Rebecca Sapp/Getty Images Photo: Rebecca Sapp/WireImage.com Johnny Mathis, Babyface | “Required Listening” Scott Goldman and Dan AuerbachPhoto: Alison Buck/Getty Images Keith Urban and Scott GoldmanPhoto: Matt Winkelmeyer/WireImage.com Hear It Now: Alessia Cara | “Required Listening” “Required Listening”: New GRAMMY Museum Podcast Photo: Rebecca Sapp/WireImage.com Listen: Andy Grammer | “Required Listening” Johnny Mathis, Babyface | “Required Listening” Listen: Justin Tranter | “Required Listening” Listen: Weezer | “Required Listening” Andy Grammer and Scott Goldman Listen: Jeff Lynne | “Required Listening” Billy Porter Jr. and Scott GoldmanPhoto: Rebecca Sapp/Getty Images Listen: Justin Tranter | “Required Listening” (L-R) Heather Parry, Sean “Diddy” Combs, Scott GoldmanPhoto: Rebecca Sapp/Getty Images Weezer and Scott Goldman (right)Photo: Rebecca Sapp/WireImage.com Cold War Kids and Scott GoldmanPhoto: Rebecca Sapp/WireImage.com Keith Urban and Scott GoldmanPhoto: Matt Winkelmeyer/WireImage.com Weezer and Scott Goldman (right)Photo: Rebecca Sapp/WireImage.com Listen: Cold War Kids | “Required Listening” Photo: Rebecca Sapp/WireImage.com Jeff LynnePhoto: Lester Cohen/WireImage Jimmy Iovine, Scott Goldman and Allen HughesPhoto: Rebecca Sapp/WireImage.com Justin Tranter and Scott Goldman Subscribe To “Required Listening” And Listen To The Full Interview At Apple MusicRead more Listen: Aloe Blacc | “Required Listening” Jimmy Iovine, Scott Goldman and Allen HughesPhoto: Rebecca Sapp/WireImage.com Diddy, Heather Parry | “Required Listening” “Required Listening” Dan Auerbach Listen: Sheryl Crow | “Required Listening” Erika Ender | “Required Listening” Podcast “Required Listening”: New GRAMMY Museum Podcast Photo: Rebecca Sapp/WireImage.com Johnny Mathis, Babyface | “Required Listening” Diddy & Heather Parry On ‘Can’t Stop Won’t Stop’ Doc | “Required Listening” Podcast last_img read more

Twitter discloses bug that shared location data on iOS users

first_imgTwitter says a bug collected location data on iOS devices.  Angela Lang/CNET The bird got its bugs. On Monday, Twitter disclosed a privacy bug that collected an account’s location information on iOS devices, even if it didn’t have its precise location tracking feature turned on. The social network was also sharing that location data with an advertising partner, the company said in a statement. The bug affected you if you had more than one Twitter account logged in on its iOS app and had the precise location feature enabled. If you had it enabled on one account on the app, the bug would also trigger it for all the other accounts logged in on that device, Twitter said. “We have fixed this problem and are working hard to make sure it does not happen again,” Twitter said in its statement. “We have also communicated with the people whose accounts were impacted to let them know the bug has been fixed.”Twitter didn’t respond to a request for comment on how long the bug had existed, and how many people were affected by this issue. That data was sent to advertisers for a process called “real-time bidding,” where advertisers pay for space based on people’s location. Twitter said it intended to remove location data from what it sent to its advertising partners, but failed to do so. As an added security measure though, it did obscure that data so that it wasn’t “more precise than zip code or city,” which means that it wasn’t presented as an address or precise movements. There also were not Twitter handles or unique IDs involved with the bug, Twitter said. The social network said its partners only had that data for a short period, and it was deleted. Twitter didn’t comment on how long that time period was. As our sister site ZDNet points out, this is the fourth bug that Twitter has disclosed in the past year. In January, Twitter announced a bug that exposed Android users’ protected tweets since 2014. In September, Twitter disclosed a bug that sent people’s direct messages to developers who weren’t supposed to receive it. And last May, Twitter warned its 330 million users there was a bug that stored passwords in plain text in an internal log. “We’re very sorry this happened. We recognize and appreciate the trust you place in us and are committed to earning that trust every day,” Twitter said in its Monday statement.  Post a comment Tags iOS 12 Twitter Share your voice Mobile Security Mobile Apps 0last_img read more

Facebook and Twitter pull down more fake accounts from Iran

Now playing: Watch this: Would Facebook get any better if we fined Mark Zuckerberg… The social network says it took down 51 Facebook accounts, 36 pages and seven groups tied to Iran. Graphic by Pixabay/Illustration by CNET Facebook and Twitter are cracking down on more fake accounts from Iran.Some of the people behind these fake accounts impersonated US Republican congressional candidates on Twitter and used Facebook to contact journalists and policy makers, illustrating how social networks can be abused to mislead others and spread misinformation.  On Tuesday, Facebook said it took down 51 accounts, 36 pages and seven groups tied to Iran. Facebook, which owns Instagram, also removed three accounts on the photo sharing app. Twitter said that in early May it pulled down more than 2,800 fake accounts tied to Iran. The company shared its remarks after US cybersecurity firm FireEye released a report that showed how some Twitter accounts were used to pose as those belonging to US political candidates and push pro-Iranian political messages.FireEye said in the report that the network of social media accounts that posted in English shared messages that were “anti-Saudi, anti-Israeli, and pro-Palestinian.” Two of the Twitter accounts impersonated Republican congressional candidates, including Marla Livengood who lost a US midterm election in 2018 to represent California’s 9th Congressional District. Most of these fake accounts appeared to have been suspended in May. A Twitter spokeswoman criticized FireEye for not sharing its findings with the company before the report was published. “Our investigations into these accounts are ongoing,” she said. “As we continue to investigate potential wider networks and actors, we typically avoid making any declarative public statements until we can be sure that we have reached the end of our analyses.” FireEye didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment. Scott Winn, a consultant who helped run Livengood’s campaign for Congress, said in a statement that she’s “shocked that Twitter was either unwilling, disinterested or too inept to protect users from obvious false information.”Nathaniel Gleicher, Facebook’s head of cybersecurity policy, said the company pulled down the Iranian-linked accounts for “coordinated inauthentic behavior,” which means the people behind the accounts deceived users about their identity and what they were doing.The Iranian accounts impersonated news outlets in the Middle East and tried to make it appear as if they were located in the US or Europe. Facebook users — including journalists, policy makers, academics and Iranian dissidents — were contacted by some of these accounts. Gleicher said a “small number” of people will be notified through various ways that they were contacted by one of these accounts. He didn’t say how many users Facebook will be notifying. Unlike other Iranian-linked accounts Facebook has spotted in the past, this operation didn’t appear to focus on creating “large public splashes” on websites or social media platforms, Gleicher said during a conference call. “Part of the focus of this operation seems to have been direct outreach to individuals while using these personas that they adopted,” he said.facebookaccountsFacebook removed this account that appeared to originate in Iran. Facebook The accounts, which shared posts in English and Arabic, posted about topics “like public figures and politics in the US and UK, US secessionist movements, Islam, Arab minorities in Iran and the influence of Saudi Arabia in the Middle East.” Some of the pages that Facebook removed include Discover new persia, Republicanism for Great Britain and the Ahwaz Saudi Channel.A Facebook page is similar to an account on the social network but is used by businesses, organizations and public figures. A Facebook group is an online space where the social network’s users can gather to chat about a certain interest. The Iranian-linked accounts garnered thousands of followers but not as many as some of the social network’s previous account takedowns, according to Facebook. About 21,000 accounts followed one or more of these fake pages. Roughly 1,900 accounts joined one or more of the Facebook groups and 2,600 people followed one or more of the three Instagram accounts. Gleicher said the company isn’t notifying users who followed one of the accounts or pages because Facebook doesn’t want to “overload” users with a lot of notifications and raise concerns that aren’t helpful. Facebook said it started looking into these Iranian-linked accounts after a tip from FireEye, which also released a report in August about a separate Iranian influence campaign. The cybersecurity company has not tied the most recent accounts it uncovered to the ones it identified last year. FireEye said in Tuesday’s report that the accounts posted pro-Iranian content in a way that’s similar to accounts it’s identified in the past.Facebook and Twitter have announced a series of fake account takedowns tied to Iran since 2018. In January, Facebook and Twitter announced that they took down thousands of pages and accounts that originated in Iran.  4 Comments Politics Tech Industry 4:36 Facebooklast_img read more

Trump tweet blasts NASA plans for moon return despite his own policy

first_img6:56 Now playing: Watch this: For all of the money we are spending, NASA should NOT be talking about going to the Moon – We did that 50 years ago. They should be focused on the much bigger things we are doing, including Mars (of which the Moon is a part), Defense and Science!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) June 7, 2019 Originally published June 7, 12:06 p.m. PT.  NASA Space Donald Trump Buzz Aldrin visited the moon. NASA The moon is old hat to President Donald Trump. Trump hit up Twitter on Friday to poo-poo NASA’s ambitious plans to return American astronauts to the moon by 2024. Those plans stem directly from a Trump administration Space Policy Directive 1 the president signed in late 2017. As @POTUS said, @NASA is using the Moon to send humans to Mars! Right now, @MarsCuriosity and @NASAInSight are on Mars and will soon be joined by the Mars 2020 rover and the Mars helicopter. pic.twitter.com/Br1sTYfNzd— Jim Bridenstine (@JimBridenstine) June 7, 2019 Trump wrote that the moon is a part of Mars, which may reference NASA’s view of the moon as a jumping-off point for deeper human space exploration, but that’s just speculation. This interpretation seems at odds with what comes across as a downplaying of NASA’s moon mission. Comments Memorable moon photos from NASA and beyond (pictures) Under my Administration, we are restoring @NASA to greatness and we are going back to the Moon, then Mars. I am updating my budget to include an additional $1.6 billion so that we can return to Space in a BIG WAY!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) May 13, 2019 Share your voice Tags “It is the stated policy of this administration and the United States of America to return American astronauts to the moon within the next five years,” Vice President Mike Pence declared in March as the administration shortened the timeline for the moon return, directing NASA to shoot for 2024.Trump tweeted his support for NASA in May, saying, “Under my administration, we are restoring NASA to greatness and we are going back to the Moon, then Mars.” This came at a time when the White House updated its budget to include an additional $1.6 billion to support the agency’s moon focus. That funding didn’t come through. NASA now aims to return astronauts to the moon within 5 years NASA’s moon mission hits a roadblock as additional funding rejected “For all of the money we are spending, NASA should not be talking about going to the moon,” Trump wrote, saying we already “did that 50 years ago.” He suggested NASA should instead focus on “the much bigger things,” including Mars, defense and science. It’s unclear whether Trump’s anti-moon missive is just a passing thought, or if it might spark a change in his administration’s policy to push for a NASA moon return more than 50 years after Apollo 11 landed the first humans on the satellite’s surface.When asked about the tweet, a NASA media relations specialist pointed CNET to a response tweet by NASA administrator Jim Bridenstine. Bridenstine seems to be interpreting Trump’s message as a push to focus on the moon as a stepping stone for reaching Mars. Sci-Tech Politics NASA aims for the moon, maybe It would be challenging for NASA to talk about humans on Mars without first talking about the moon. The agency released a soaring trailer last month for its moon mission and is working on building a lunar gateway and further exploring the moon’s surface through both robotic and human efforts.The White House did not immediately respond to a request for comment.  11 Photos NASA isn’t the only space agency trying to land on the… 6last_img read more
