In the previous quarter, mobile accounted for 75 per cent of the $220 million in advertising revenue generated.Mobile monthly active users (MAU) increased 31 per cent year-on-year, to reach 198 million. Year-on-year growth in mobile users slowed compared to Q4 2013 though, when it was 37 per cent.Compared to the previous quarter, mobile MAUs increased 7.6 per cent, higher than the 4 per cent rise seen between Q3 and Q4.Mobile users represented 78 per cent of the total average MAUs of 255 million, which increased 25 per cent year-on-year. This increase was 30 per cent for the prior quarter.Timeline views increased 15 per cent year-on-year at 157 billion, up from 148 billion in Q4 2013. Advertising revenue per thousand timeline views was $1.44, up 96 per cent year-on-year.During the first quarter, Twitter launched improved tools for advertisers to target audiences more effectively while the addition of mobile publishing company MoPub allowed it to reach more than one billion iOS and Android users every month.Twitter CEO Dick Costolo said that the company had a strong first quarter with revenue that accelerated year-on-year, “fuelled by increased engagement and user growth”.However, investors were unconvinced by the results, with Twitter’s share price falling to its lowest level since the company made its stock market debut in November last year.Looking to the second quarter, Twitter expects revenue to rise again to reach $270-$280 million. It expects stock-based compensation expense to be between $170 million and $180 million, excluding the impact of equity awards related to potential acquisitions.For 2014 as a whole, revenue is forecast to hit $1.2 billion-$1.25 billion, with stock-based compensation expense of $640-690 million, and capital expenditure in the $330 million to $390 million range.Twitter’s full-year revenue in 2013 reached $664.9 million, up from $316.9 million the year before.

Heavy rain, flooding on the way for Northeast

first_imgiStock/Thinkstock(NEW YORK) — Heavy snow and winds were subsiding in the upper Midwest on Tuesday morning as the blizzard that dumped over a foot of snow in parts came to an end. But the storm is currently moving into southern Canada and will bring different impacts to the Northeast.The storm is moving east on Tuesday morning and bringing heavy rain and strong thunderstorms to much of the East Coast. Strong thunderstorms have already brought some large hail to parts of Ohio this morning. A wintry mix, including some freezing rain, will be possible Tuesday morning in parts of northern New England.Given the chance for very heavy rain and complications from ice jams, flood watches have been posted for parts of the Northeast, including the suburbs of Albany, New York; Hartford, Connecticut; Boston and the city of Buffalo, New York. Flooding is already being reported in the Buffalo area due to ice jam-related flooding. Winter weather advisories have been issued where freezing rain and light snow could be an issue this morning.As the storm moves east we are watching the potential for strong to severe thunderstorms in parts of the mid-Atlantic and Northeast. The risk is mainly for damaging winds, especially from North Carolina to New Jersey. A tornado cannot be ruled out in this region either. Strong winds are also possible in parts of southern New England and especially Rhode Island and southeast Massachusetts.The heaviest of the rain will arrive around mid to late morning from Philadelphia to Boston.Conditions will start drying out and cooling down later in the evening. By 7 p.m., the line of storms is expected to be moved out to the Atlantic Ocean.Temperatures set to drop … then riseAhead of the front we are seeing very mild conditions across the mid-Atlantic and Northeast. Temperatures in the mid 50s on Tuesday in New York, and near 60 in Philadelphia and Washington, D.C. However, as soon as the front crosses, temperatures will begin to cool down.It will feel noticeably cooler by the evening rush Tuesday on the I-95 corridor, and if you are going out for a late dinner, you should bundle up. Nearly a 20-degree temperature change is coming. On Wednesday morning it will be 38 degrees in New York City, right around average for late January.The good news is the colder weather is going to be short-lived. Another period of mild weather is already in sight, and temperatures will be warming above average as we head into the end of the week and this weekend.Outside of a series of storms in the northwest U.S., the weather pattern is about to quiet down temporarily with much of the rest of the country seeing drier conditions. Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio.

Protect Young Workers from Retail Accidents and Safety Hazards

first_imgJune, which is National Safety Month, is an appropriate time to focus on young workers, as they head out of school and into the workforce. Many of them will find jobs in the retail industry, a leading employer of young workers in the United States.In 2014, there were approximately 18.1 million workers younger than age 24 in the United States. These workers represented 13 percent of the US workforce. Young workers have high workplace injury rates, explained in part by the high frequency of hazards in their typical workplaces. In retail work settings, for instance, slippery floors and use of knives and energized equipment are common hazards. Inexperience and lack of workplace safety training also increase risks of injury due to retail accidents for young workers. The youngest—those in middle and high schools—may have physical and psychosocial limitations that lead to higher injury rates.[text_ad use_post=’125303′]- Sponsor – In 2014, about 23,000 (1 of every 4) young retail workers were injured in a retail job. The rate of emergency department–treated workplace injuries was found to be about two times higher for young workers than for workers 25 years and older.In 2014, 18.1 million United States workers were under age 24.One of the most frequently reported injuries in retail is lacerations, or cuts. (Read Miranda’s story in the sidebar for a true account of a young person injured while working in retail.)To address their increased risk for work-related injury, NIOSH developed a new webpage for young retail workers. This page includes safety tips for recognizing workplace hazards and understanding the injuries they can cause, such as being struck by or stuck in an object or equipment; doing too much (overexertion); slips, trips, and falls; driving or riding incidents on the road; and workplace violence. What you know can keep you safe and healthy at work.SIDEBAR: Miranda’s MisfortuneMiranda, who had just turned 16, was at her first job in a local grocery store. One evening, she was to stock three departments. First, she had to open boxes with a box-cutting knife, and she felt pressure to get that done fast. Miranda ran the knife through a box, and the blade slid off the box and slashed her leg. It was bleeding. She was a good worker and did not want to get into trouble for hurting herself or not doing her work. Instead of telling her supervisor or anyone she was hurt, she went to the restroom to tend to her leg. She made a bandage to cover the cut and stop the bleeding. Then she continued working and finished her shift.When Miranda got home from work, the makeshift bandage on her leg was soaked with blood. She was worried because the bleeding did not stop. She showed her mom and dad the cut, and they took her to the emergency room for medical treatment.The doctor closed the cut with ten stitches and told Miranda to limit her activities for three days. She needed to report her injury to her supervisor, but she was afraid she would be in trouble or be fired for making a mistake and getting hurt. She also worried that she could be fired for not telling anyone sooner about her injury. This job meant a lot to her, and she needed it to save for college.Miranda was not aware of some important things about workplace safety.First, there are laws to protect teenagers from hazardous jobs. Second, she has worker rights and responsibilities. Safety training is required, and she should report any injuries at work to her supervisor. Third, employers have workplace responsibilities, and one is to keep employees safe.After Miranda told her supervisor what happened, the company was able to fill out the required paperwork for retail accidents and workplace injuries. She continued working, but when she stocked shelves, the boxes were opened for her.This post was used with permission from the NIOSH Science Blog.

GDPR: Six Months Later Many Companies Still Don’t Comply

first_imgMay 25, 2018.  The deadline for compliance with the EU GDPR regulations.  You probably received a flood of emails leading up to that date, and noticed numerous sites now have popups asking users to accept website cookies when browsing a website.It turns out though that few companies have been able to meet the strict requirements of GDPR.  A recent survey by Talend also surprisingly found that compliance with GDPR was actually higher by companies located outside of Europe than those inside.  A survey by Yahoo found that more than 60 percent of US companies were in compliance yet 50 percent or less of European companies complied.Penny Jones, research director at 451 Research, said most companies understand “the importance of GDPR, but many are still not taking their data seriously in terms of the technologies and processes they have in place. As a result, many businesses are falling short of their GDPR obligations. They can lack the proper methods for storing, organizing or retrieving data in line with the regulation’s requirements.”last_img read more
