Spouses and friends joined in the effort, cutting paper and setting out hors d’oeuvres, and it wasn’t quite noon before the Imperial bottles were deployed.“My house was the most centrally located,” said Dr. Beverlin with a smile. At 87 years, he is allegedly the oldest member of the Marine Corps of Costa Rica.This month’s initiative is called “Juguetes Para Niños,” the Spanish equivalent of Toys for Tots. Often mistaken as a generic term, Toys for Tots was founded by the United States Marine Corps in 1947 and has distributed millions of donated toys to low-income households. Taking their cue from their U.S. predecessors, the 50 members of the Costa Rican chapter have started their first-ever Toys for Tots drive, and they seem happy with the outcome: They have already donated about 150 toys to the Seeds of Love creative enrichment program, and they planned to donate two batches of 50 toys to Central Valley neighborhoods and to a church in Jacó. (For more information or to support their campaign, visit the Marine Corps League Costa Rica Facebook page.)“People don’t know about what we’re doing,” said Bill Enell, commandant of the Marine Corps. “So this first year we tried to get the word out and let people know what’s going on. Hopefully next year we’ll have more toys and it will be more of a banner year.”The Tico Times caught up with Enell and his fellow veterans last Wednesday morning for their wrap session.last_img read more

Discovery secures European Olympic TV rights through 2024

first_img Mesa family survives lightning strike to home The channel, projected to cost $600 million to operate over the first seven years, is designed to promote Olympic sports 365 days a year.“This agreement ensures that sports fans in Europe will be able to enjoy excellent coverage of the Olympic Games and Olympic sports, both during and outside games time, on their platform of choice,” Bach said.The deal covers all countries in Europe, except for Russia.“Russia was not part of the offer presented by Discovery and this is it,” Bach said. “There is no particular decision behind it.”Discovery said it was committed to broadcasting a minimum of 200 hours of the Summer Games and 100 hours of the Winter Games on free TV during the games period.“Today is a historic day,” Discovery Communications president and CEO David Zaslav said. “This new partnership is an exciting win for European sports fans as we will deliver record amounts of content across platforms.”Zaslav said Discovery will sub-license a portion of the rights in numerous countries across Europe.The BBC and France Televisions have rights through 2020. For 2022 and 2024, they would need to try to secure the rights on a sub-license deal from Discovery. Sponsored Stories “We understand and have great respect of the Olympic programming on the BBC, French and German TV throughout Europe,” Zaslav said. “We expect the BBC will have every possibility to sub-license. They can continue. It’s true of a majority of countries in Europe.”The BBC said the Olympics remains a priority for the company and it will talk to Discovery about keeping the rights after 2020.“It is not unprecedented for sports rights to be sold on a pan-territory basis and the BBC has acquired other sports rights via sub-licensing deals with either agencies or broadcasters,” the BBC said in a statement. “We will be seeking further discussions with Discovery about the UK free-to-air rights to the 2022 and 2024 Olympic Games in due course.”The Discovery deal is the latest in a series of long-term, multi-games broadcast agreements done by the IOC.Last year, NBC struck a record $7.75 billion deal with the IOC to extend its exclusive U.S. rights through 2032. Japan, China and South Korea have signed broadcast deals through 2024.The IOC secured $4.1 billion in revenues from global rights deals for the current 2014-2016 cycle.In a telephone interview with The Associated Press, Zaslav — who worked with NBC’s Dick Ebersol on six Olympics in the 1990s — said he decided to push for the rights a year ago after reading that Bach planned to set up an Olympic television channel. LONDON (AP) — U.S.-based media giant Discovery Communications Inc. secured the European broadcast rights for four Olympics through 2024 on Monday in a landmark deal worth 1.3 billion euros ($1.45 billion).The parent company of the Discovery Channel and Eurosport won the rights to the games of 2018, 2020, 2022 and 2024, and also agreed to collaborate with the IOC on its new year-round Olympic Channel.The International Olympic Committee said the deal covers all platforms, including free television, subscription and pay TV, internet and mobile phones in 50 countries across the continent. “‘When I read that, I thought, that really should be us,” Zaslav said. “This is a huge day for us. We have focused very hard in Europe the last several years. The Olympics is maybe the most compelling, unique programming available in the world.”IOC marketing director Timo Lumme said there were other bidders, but he declined to name them or the price they offered.“We had a wide range of different types of bids. It was a very competitive process,” Lumme told the AP.___Follow Stephen Wilson on Twitter: http://twitter.com/stevewilsonapCopyright © The Associated Press. All rights reserved.

The 2022 and 2024 host cities have not yet been selected.The deal could leave the BBC, which has held the rights in Britain to every Olympics since 1960, out of the picture after its current deal expires in 2020. However, Discovery said it would sub-license rights in many countries, and the BBC would be a likely contender for that.Discovery bought Eurosport, Europe’s leading sports network, last year for about $345 million. Discovery, which is based in Silver Spring, Maryland, is the home of channels including Animal Planet, TLC and OWN.Discovery says it has an average of 10 channels in every market in Europe and can deliver more coverage than ever before to a potential audience of 700 million people.“This agreement ensures comprehensive coverage of the Olympic Games across Europe, including the guarantee to provide extensive free-to-air television coverage in all territories,” IOC President Thomas Bach said.Bach hailed the company’s commitment to work with the IOC to develop the Olympic Channel across Europe. The channel, which was approved by the IOC in December, is scheduled for launch next April, a few months before the Olympics in Rio de Janeiro.

EU opens antitrust case against 6 major US movie studios

With pay-TV stations largely operating within national boundaries, there are potential big repercussions for a market of more than 500 million consumers.The firms named Thursday now have the right to respond. There is no legal deadline for the Commission to complete antitrust inquiries.If the Commission decides that antitrust rules have been infringed, companies can be forced to pay a fine which can theoretically go as high 10 percent of gross revenue.In a statement, Sky acknowledged receipt of the Commission’s objections and said it will “respond in due course.”___Jill Lawless contributed from London, Jake Coyle from New YorkCopyright © The Associated Press.

Sponsored Stories BRUSSELS (AP) — The European Union on Thursday launched an antitrust case against six major U.S. movie studios and British satellite broadcaster Sky UK, in a move that could profoundly shake up the highly lucrative pay-television market in Europe.The EU’s executive Commission has sent a so-called statement of objections to the companies regarding what it says are “contractual restrictions” preventing EU consumers outside Britain and Ireland from accessing the services of Sky UK. “We believe that this may be in breach of EU competition rules,” Vestager said.In a reaction, the Walt Disney Company said that “the impact of the Commission’s analysis is destructive of consumer value and we will oppose the proposed action vigorously.”“Our approach is one that supports local creative industries, local digital and broadcast partners and most importantly consumers in every country across the EU,” the Disney statement said. Other U.S. studios either declined to comment or did not immediately answer requests for comment.The charges, if upheld, run counter to one of the EU’s cornerstones — that of removing barriers to trade within its borders. They also raise questions for other European broadcasters.The Commission, which wields vast powers when it comes to antitrust and anticompetitive practices in the EU, confirmed it is also looking into similar cases including Canal Plus of France, Sky Italia of Italy, Germany’s Sky Deutschland and DTS of Spain. Together, the five nations represent over 300 million consumers in the wealthiest trade bloc on earth.The probes all started at the same time in January 2014, but the U.K. investigation was the first to reach the stage of an official, legal statement of objection.

Pending Home Sales Held Back by Scarce Inventory

first_img Inventory National Association of Realtors Pending-Home Sales 2016-01-28 Staff Writer in Daily Dose, Data, Featured, News “Warmer than average weather and more favorable inventory conditions compared to other parts of the country encouraged more households in the Northeast to make the decision to buy last month,” said Lawrence Yun, NAR Chief Economist. “Overall, while sustained job creation is spurring more activity compared to a year ago, the ability to find available homes in affordable price ranges is difficult for buyers in many job creating areas. With homebuilding still grossly inadequate, steady price appreciation and tight supply conditions aren’t going away any time soon.” Share January 28, 2016 547 Views center_img Buyers that signed contracts to buy existing homes are being stopped by one major problem in the housing market—fewer options in the housing market.Pending home sales moved up very little in December 2015, coming in much less than projected by industry experts. According to the National Association of Realtors’ (NAR) Pending Home Sales Index, pending home sales rose only 0.1 percent to 106.8 in December, marking the 16th month of consecutive increases.The index, which tracks contract signings, found that pending home sales stood at 106.7 in November 2015 and is up 4.2 percent year-over-year in December from last year’s total of 102.5. Pending Home Sales Held Back by Scarce Inventory Source: National Association of Home BuildersWas the TILA-RESPA Integrated Disclosure (TRID) rule a factor in the small rise in pending home sales for December?Ralph B. McLaughlin, Chief Economist at Trulia suggested, “The December Fed rate hike had negligible impact on new contracts signed, as pending home sales increased slightly. This also suggests that December’s big jump in existing sales was likely a result of TRID-RESPA. December’s small month-over-month increase of 0.1 percent pending home sales further suggests that it was TRID-RESPA, not a sharp increase in demand ­ that drove existing sales last month.”The NAR expects existing-homes sales to rise about 1.5 percent to 5.34 million in 2016, while the national median existing-home price for all of this year is expected to increase between 4 and 5 percent.According to the report, renters should see some relief, as rents slow to 3.3 percent growth in 2013 from 3.6 percent a year ago, the NAR estimates. are expected to slightly slow to 3.3 percent growth in 2016 from 3.6 percent a year ago.Leading the small increase among pending home sales is the Northeast region, with a 6.1 percent increase to 97.8 in December and is now 15.3 percent higher than it was a year ago, the report showed. The Midwest saw a 1.1 percent drop in pending home sales to 103.6, but is 3.6 higher than last year.Southern pending home sales fell 0.5 percent to an index of 119.3 in December, but are 1.0 percent above last year, while sales in the West decreased 2.1 percent in December to 97.5, but are 3.4 percent above a year ago.Yun said that demand may see some slowdown in the near future—even though the positive employment situation may tempt more households to buy—due to the tumultuous start of the year in stocks and the energy sector.”The silver lining from the market turmoil in recent weeks is the fact that mortgage rates have slightly declined,” Yun stated. “Buyers looking to close on a home before the spring buying season begins may be rewarded with a mortgage rate at or below 4 percent.”last_img read more
