Syracuse drops to No. 10 in Inside Lacrosse rankings

first_img Published on April 29, 2019 at 11:07 am Contact Michael: mmcclear@syr.edu | @MikeJMcCleary Facebook Twitter Google+ Syracuse fell three spots to No. 10 in Monday’s Inside Lacrosse Division-I media poll.The Orange were bounced in the play-in game of the ACC tournament after a late surge lifted North Carolina to an 11-10 win over SU.With six minutes remaining in the game, SU led the Tar Heels 10-7 and was primed for a win that would advance the Orange to a matchup with No. 1-seed Virginia. But UNC scored four unanswered goals to push ahead and send the Orange home in their first game of the conference tournament for the second-straight year.Syracuse will have to wait until the Selection Show next Sunday, May 5, for its NCAA Tournament fate.

Setting the Ground Rules for Lead Generation

first_img“We don’t want to get into the discussion with the exhibitor of, ‘OK, we had 800 folks come to our booth, but a lot of these guys wanted free t-shirts, how do you qualify them?’” Schlett says. “We don’t want to start discounting because of it. Someone like Pierce Fire Truck Co. knows how to follow through on a lead. Another company will say, ‘It didn’t turn into a sale.’ I don’t want to coach their sales staff on how they should follow up. That’s not my job.”Sophistication at the client level is all over the map. “We have extremely sophisticated clients who can measure through to sales, to clients who can say, ‘I’ll give you $20 per lead, take it or leave it,’” says EE Times CEO Paul Miller. “That’s not a business we want to be in-it’s commoditized.” If advertisers are expecting publishers to deliver prospects right through to the sale, publishers should get a cut of that sale, according to Miller. “If you can track through the sales, why not give us a share of the sales we helped create?” he adds. “That’s where client says, ‘That’s crazy, the process can’t be that sophisticated.’ At end of day, it has to be that sophisticated.” Lead generation has dominated much of the b-to-b conversation for the last year, offering hope, revenue and not just a little frustration on the part of publishers, many of whom quickly find out the lead gen business can be more than they bargained for. “We’ve been able to re-build our properties not from larger, share-of-market accounts, but with smaller companies who want to see lead generation from e-products,” says one b-to-b publisher who wishes to remain anonymous. “Even some of our larger accounts are not buying based on the number of unique visitors or page views or any of the other site metrics. They want to see direct ROI in terms of clicks on their ads.”The publisher’ traffic continues to skyrocket but because a follower on Twitter may not necessarily be the right fit for the advertisers, the click-through actually goes down and the publisher can’t leverage the traffic itself because that’s not a key buying point for many of its customers. “I feel caught between keeping up and wanting to tap into the benefits of these social mechanisms but I’ve got limited resources and still need to attend to the basics of getting print products out the door on time, developing new e-newsletters and improving our Web sites,” he says. More publishers have to take a stand with advertisers over lead generation. While Haymarket’s SC Magazine has used the success it’s had generating leads with its SC World Congress virtual show to switch from a flat fee to cost-per-lead model, PennWell’s FDIC Online virtual shows will retain a flat $4,500 sponsorship fee that includes leads, according to Eric Schlett, vice president, publisher/executive director of Fire Engineering Magazine. last_img read more

Massacre in Ogossagou Mali

Massacre in Ogossagou Mali

first_imgIġsma ta’ suldati maqtula fil-kamp militari ta’ DiouraIġsma ta’ suldati maqtula fil-kamp militari ta’ Dioura “The Bishops of Mali together with the evangelical community have sent a message of condolence to the nation, the President of the Republic and the Minister of Religious Affairs, for the massacre in the village of Ogossagou.Next Sunday there will be prayers for the victims, the wounded and their families and for peace in Mali”, said Fr. Alexandre Denou, Secretary General of the Bishops’ Conference of Mali, as reported by Fides News Agency.On March 24, at least 160 people of the Peuls ethnicity were massacred in the village of Ogossagou, in the center of the Country. “The crime was attributed to Dogons hunters, or at least to people dressed like them,” said Fr. Alexandre. “The Dogons are a sort of confraternity of hunters. Hunting is not the job that gives them a living, in most cases, the Dogons are farmers who gather in this confraternity to hunt and create self-defense groups.”The Peuls are a population of farmers who often come into conflict with other farmers for the division of land and water sources. Mali, which has had to face the attempt of secession in the north, where jihadist groups are raging, lives in a situation of profound insecurity.“Last Sunday as a Church we prayed for the victims of the Dioura massacre,” recalled Fr. Alexandre. On Sunday, March 17, in the assault on the military camp of Dioura, 23 Malian soldiers lost their lives. The attack was perpetrated by a group affiliated with Al Qaida.“The Catholic Church and the Evangelical Church are working together to promote peace, and together we appeal to the Malian nation so that concord and not division may prevail,” concluded Fr. Alexandre.WhatsApp <a href=’http://revive.newsbook.com.mt/www/delivery/ck.php?n=ab2c8853&amp;cb={random}’ target=’_blank’><img src=’https://revive.newsbook.com.mt/www/delivery/avw.php?zoneid=97&amp;cb={random}&amp;n=ab2c8853&amp;ct0={clickurl_enc}’ border=’0′ alt=” /></a> SharePrintlast_img read more
