British American Tobacco (BAT) has announced a range of benefits for new parents among its workforce worldwide, including a compulsory minimum of 16 weeks’ fully paid maternity leave.The organisation, which employs more than 55,000 people across 180 countries, will introduce the benefit to new mothers and adoptive parents from 1 January 2019, supplementing statutory pay where required.BAT says the new benefit will go beyond local requirements for 20,000 employees in 26 countries.A return-to-work guarantee means that all new mothers who are on maternity leave, or parents who are on adoption leave, for 12 months or less will be able to return to their previous job or a suitable alternative wherever reasonably practicable.In addition, all new parents and adopters will have the opportunity to request flexible working arrangements following their return to work during the first year of the child’s birth or arrival. Depending on role and location, this could mean one or more days off per working week, reduced working hours or the flexibility to work from home, subject to local business requirements.BAT has also set up an online coaching service, called ‘parents@BAT online’, designed to help new parents and prepare line managers for career discussions and to support those returning to work.Nicandro Durante, chief executive at BAT, said: “It’s of such great importance to us that our organisation is made up of as many different types of people as possible, ensuring they are rewarded, appreciated and supported, especially at times when they need it most.“We want to ensure no one at BAT has to choose between their career and their family, and that’s why this will be available to colleagues all over the world. We are proud to be offering this new range of parental benefits on a global scale and we are looking forward to seeing the changes this will hopefully make to the lives of both our current and future employees.”

Facebook0TwitterEmailPrintFriendly分享A public hearing is set for the Kenai Peninsula Borough Planning and Zoning Commission this evening to discuss the proposed new site for the Central Emergency Service building. The existing station’s space is maxed out and does not meet code.The current property is too small for further upgrades to meet operational needs going forward, according to a memo to the assembly. The funding for the project, estimated at $1.5 million, would come through a loan from the Land Trust Investment Fund. A site selection committee comprised of both borough and City of Soldotna officials evaluated potential sites according to design and operational criteria to fit the need of a new Station 1 for Central Emergency Services. An ordinance was introduced at the Borough Assembly meeting on August 7, to purchase the property on the corner of East Redoubt Avenue and Homestead Lane. Station 1 is central to the entire operation of CES . Its initial construction dates back to 1957 with major additions in 1971 and 1982. The proposed area for a new station involves two different property owners, located across from Petco, in Soldotna. The construction of the building would require a realignment of Homestead Lane, which runs toward the Kenai River from Redoubt Avenue. The P&Z meeting is this evening at 7:30pm, at the Kenai Peninsula Borough building in Soldotna.
There will be a public hearing on the ordinance at the city council meeting on December 12. Kyle Kornelis Public Works Director: “This would authorize the City to issue $10M in general obligation bonds, if approved by voters, to construct the proposed new indoor field house. The bond debt would be paid for by increasing sales tax by a half a percent for a projected 10 years or until the debt is paid off.” The total estimated cost of the project is $11.8 million dollars. The administration has recommended that $10 million be financed through debt of a general obligation bond, with the remaining covered by grants, support from various foundations, and private donations. The city council held a work session on October 8 to look at potential scenarios for a bond to help cover the $10 million dollars. During that work session the administration recommended asking the voters, in a special election on March 5, 2019, for a 0.5% increase in the city’s year-round sales tax rate implemented for the 10-year life of the bond. This would increase the city’s sale tax rate from 3% to 3.5%. The final design for the Field House includes a 42,600 square foot metal frame building including a turf field and elevated walking/jogging track. The building would be adjacent and connected to the Soldotna Regional Sports Complex. Facebook0TwitterEmailPrintFriendly分享The City of Soldotna will introduce an ordinance at their meeting on Wednesday that would enable the city to move forward with the Field House project.

Facebook0TwitterEmailPrintFriendly分享NOAA Fisheries Alaska announced on Thursday that they have located three additional dead gray whales, bringing the number of gray whale mortalities in Alaska to ten. The confirmed gray whale reports all came from Southeast Alaska. On Monday, a fisherman reported a dead floating gray whale near Wrangell. Thanks to assistance from the U.S. Forest Service, the whale was secured to a beach. A team led by NOAA Fisheries veterinarian Kate Savage is performing a necropsy today. NOAA Fisheries declared the elevated rate of gray whale strandings along the West Coast an Unusual Mortality Event on May 31. The UME extends all along the West Coast, from Mexico up through Alaska. Currently, there are 81 gray whale mortalities in the United States, with a total of 167 dead gray whales when Mexico and Canada are included. Late Tuesday, NOAA received two more gray whale reports. One gray whale was beached on the outer coast of Kruzof Island, west of Sitka. There are no plans to conduct a necropsy on this whale because of its advanced state of decomposition and remote location. The third gray whale is a fresh carcass floating near Point Davis and Annette Island, south of Ketchikan. If this gray whale is secured, NOAA plans to assemble a team to perform a necropsy.
KPD Police Chief Dave Ross: “One of the items that was being searched for in the river was a handgun. A handgun consistent with what we were searching for was recovered from the river. That handgun will be going to the state crime lab for further analysis.” According to court documents, “MASONN BYRD was interviewed and denied involvement. DWIGHT DAVIS, MASONN’S grandfather, was also interviewed. DWIGHT stated that MASONN had told him, the morning after the shooting, that he shot the two women and that he was going to throw the gun into the river. MASONN also told DWIGHT that the shooting occurred over money and that he thought he would get away with it because there were no witnesses.” Masonn Byrd was arrested on Tuesday night in connection with the shooting deaths of Lisa Rutzebeck and her mother Rachelle Armstrong that occured on Sunday morning. Byrd faces two charges of first-degree murder.

First responders searched the Kenai River off Bridge Access on Thursday. Byrd was arraigned in Kenai Superior Court on Wednesday.
“For the last 10 years, we’ve had a publishing partnership with the AIA, which concludes in December,” a McGraw-Hill Construction spokesperson said. “Working independently, we will be best positioned to provide a trusted voice, to serve the new and emerging needs of the architectural community and to advance our business interests. “It appears that AIA was essentially looking for a custom publication they would control,” the spokesperson added. “That is not what the market needs now or in the future.” When contacted by FOLIO:, Hanley Wood CEO Frank Anton declined to comment on the partnership other to say it is “in keeping with our belief that a focus on a single, large market remains the best strategy for b-to-b media companies.” This isn’t the first time the AIA has partnered with Hanley Wood. In 1976, the company’s founders served as the contract publishers for the association’s AIA Journal. Published 14 times annually, Hanley Wood’s Architect targets the commercial construction space and was launched, along with ArchitectMagazine.com, in 2006. It carries a BPA-audited circulation of 58,575. Residential Architect, which launched 12 years ago, carries a BPA-audited bimonthly circulation of 20,000.Hanley Wood also publishes Architectural Lighting, Concrete Construction and EcoHome magazines. The American Institute of Architects has selected Hanley Wood’s Architect and Residential Architect as the association’s official magazines. As part of the partnership—which has been agreed upon in principle and is expected to become effective in 2011—Hanley Wood Exhibitions will manage the AIA’s annual convention.While Hanley Wood will continue to own the magazines’ assets, starting next year it will collaborate with the AIA on editorial planning for both, and the AIA will have a dedicated section in each magazine to contribute content.The deal effectively ends a similar arrangement the AIA had with McGraw-Hill Construction and its Architectural Record magazine. It was not immediately clear what precipitated the change. Phil Simon, AIA’s marketing and promotions managing director, did not return a request seeking comment.
While publishers continue to complain about the revenue model of some tablet devices like Apple’s iPad, those that distribute their magazines and newspapers on Amazon’s Kindle are about to see a significant revenue bump. Amazon says starting December 1 it will increase the revenue split so that publishers can earn 70 percent of the retail price for each issue sold in the Kindle Store, minus delivery costs. That’s a reversal from Amazon keeping as much as 70 percent of retail revenues.To qualify for the 70 percent royalty terms, publishers must ensure that their digital editions can be downloaded to all Kindle devices and applications for the iPhone and PCs, and that readers can access the content in any region where the publisher has rights.Blog publishers on the Kindle will continue to earn only 30 percent of gross revenue, Amazon says.According to Amazon, delivery costs for U.S.-based publishers is $0.15 per megabyte (MB). File sizes, obviously, vary depending on how much rich content is contained in each issue. Therefore, if a monthly publication’s retail cost is $9.99, and it delivers at 1 MB per month/issue, a publisher would earn roughly $6.89. Amazon says the file size of a typical magazine with 30 articles and 20 to 25 images ranges between 1 and 1.5 MB. At the same time, Amazon says it has release the beta version of the Kindle Publishing for Periodicals tool, which it says allows publishers to create an account, add content and preview Kindle formatting prior to adding their publications to the Kindle Store.

In a staff memo this morning, Bradley wrote to employees, “It is true that it took 100 interviews for me to find James Bennet. What I really found was not one in a hundred, but one in a million. James Bennet recovered The Atlantic. More personal, James Bennet recovered my ownership of The Atlantic.” One week after Atlantic Media named COO Michael Finnegan its first president since 2013, the company has announced another leadership change. Bennet, 49, previously served as Jerusalem bureau chief and White House correspondent, among other positions, at the New York Times before joining Atlantic Media in 2006. “Under James’s decade of leadership, The Atlantic has reinvented itself for the modern media age,” said Cohn in a statement. “He safeguarded the future of our 159-year-old magazine by insisting we express its mission and heritage in the most contemporary ways, on any and (almost) all platforms that our audience uses.” Bennet returns to the New York Times after spending ten years Atlantic Media, where he is largely credited with ushering the 159-year-old flagship brand into the digital age. The magazine’s website, TheAtlantic.com, reached a high of more than 31.5 million unique monthly visitors at the end of 2015, according to the company, shattering its own records. Last month, The Atlantic was named Magazine of the Year at the 2016 National Magazine Awards for Print and Digital Media. Bob Cohn, who has served as co-president of The Atlantic alongside Bennet for the past two years, will take over as sole president while the company seeks a new editor-in-chief for its flagship magazine. James Bennet, president and editor-in-chief of The Atlantic, will leave the company to take over as editorial page director for the New York Times, Atlantic Media chairman David Bradley announced today.
