Facebook, entrate in aumento ma profitti in calo per l’aumento della spesa

Tra l’aumento delle entrate e il calo dei profitti di Facebook c‘è l’esplosione della spesa, nella speranza di aprire nuove filoni in quella miniera d’oro che è la popolazione del re dei social network.

Una popolazione salita a 1 miliardo e 490 milioni di utenti mensili nel secondo trimestre, la stragrande maggioranza che accede tramite mobile.

Ma a Facebook, che registra un fatturato di oltre 4 miliardi di dollari e un utile di 715 milioni, non basta la tradizionale raccolta pubblicitaria.

La prossima tappa è la monetizzazione delle app di messaggistica e persino la realtà virtuale, attività che hanno richiesto investimenti per oltre 2,7 miliardi di dollari.

El ecuatoriano Andrés Chocho considera decisivo haber mantenido la calma

Toronto (Canadá), 25 jul (EFE).- El ecuatoriano Andrés Chocho, campeón de la marcha de 50 kilómetros de los Juegos Panamericanos de Toronto 2015, reconoció hoy que la clave de su triunfo fue mantener la calma cuando le sacaron dos amonestaciones tempranas.
“Recibí dos tarjetas pronto y eso complicó las cosas; pero pude mantener la calma, la cabeza fría y me aseguré de caminar bien”, reconoció el atleta, ganador de la medalla de oro con un tiempo de 3h 50:13, delante del subcampeón olímpico Erick Barrondo (3h 55:57).
Al pasar el kilómetro 15, que cumplió en 1h 08:21 junto a Barrondo, Horacio Nava y dos rivales más, el ecuatoriano ya tenía dos tarjetas, pero no se asustó y con un gran cambio de ritmo alcanzó el 25 con unos 100 metros de ventaja.
“No corría tanto riesgo por irme delante porque el grupo iba a un ritmo inferior al que tenía planificado, entonces salí a caminar veloz y poco a poco pude incrementar la ventaja; me sentí bien en todo momento y si los chicos que venían detrás hubieran atacado, me quedaban fuerzas para responder”, observó.
El ecuatoriano había sido descalificado en los Juegos Panamericanos de Guadalajara cuando iba en primer lugar, pero hoy dijo no haber pensado en eso y más bien se concentró en caminar con limpieza.
“Ya al final guardé energías para los Campeonatos Mundiales de Pekín el mes que viene, espero competir en los 20 kilómetros”, señaló.
La medalla de oro de Andrés subió a Ecuador al noveno lugar de la tabla de países de los Panamericanos con siete preseas de oro, nueve de plata y 16 de bronce, lo cual satisfizo a Chocho, muy interesado en sumar para su país. “Quería aportar con oro en el medallero” y lo pude hacer", comentó.
Aunque concluyó bien, el ecuatoriano llegó a la meta con una ligera lesión en la espalda baja, que según los médicos no le va a impedir prepararse para los Mundiales.
“Es algo leve”, explicó.EFE.

Archdiocese of Newark suing New Jersey over law that prevents headstone sales

By Katie Reilly

NEW YORK (Reuters) - The Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Newark has sued the state of New Jersey, arguing that a new law preventing religious organizations from selling headstones is a violation of its right to economic liberty.

The lawsuit, which was filed on Monday, is the latest step in the church’s lengthy legal dispute with the Monument Builders Association of New Jersey, which pursued state legislation after losing a lawsuit against the archdiocese in 2014. That decision was upheld in an appeal on June 23, according to attorneys representing the church.

Previously, members of the association have argued that the church threatened their business with unfair competition due to its tax-exempt status.

The new lawsuit challenges a state law, approved in March, that prohibits religious entities from selling memorials, including headstones and mausoleums.

New Jersey Governor Chris Christie approved the law after asking that implementation be delayed one year in order to protect grieving families from an immediate change in the law during a difficult time.

“The new law is, most importantly, infringing on the rights of the families we serve,” said Andrew Schafer, executive director of Catholic cemeteries for the archdiocese.

Schafer said the church wants to continue selling what it calls inscription rights, meaning a family buys rights to have a headstone inscribed while the cemetery retains ownership and responsibility for their permanent maintenance.

“When they’re acquiring the headstone from us, we’re providing that security to them that their memorial will always be cared for,” Schafer said.

The Monument Builders Association of New Jersey did not respond to requests for comment on Tuesday.

Christie’s office deferred comment to New Jersey Attorney General John Hoffman, who declined to comment on pending litigation. Christie and Hoffman are defendants in the suit.

In 47 other states, cemeteries are allowed to sell monuments directly to consumers, according to the lawsuit.

“We fully expect that when that decision does come down, it will be appealed,” said Greg Reed, one of two attorneys from the Institute for Justice representing the archdiocese.
