Responding to the increased risk for intimate partner homicide during the COVID-19 pandemic, Voices4Change offers free film streaming, resources, and training.

READING, PA, UNITED STATES, March 31, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — Each year, 50,000 women are murdered by their partners or family members worldwide and in the United States more than 4 women each day are killed by intimate partners. With the spread of Covid-19 and the subsequent orders for social distancing, the risks to victims of intimate partner violence are on the rise. Law enforcement officials across the country and around the world are already reporting an uptick in domestic violence calls amid fears that the current crisis increases the likelihood of lethal or near-lethal abuse.

Domestic violence perpetrators frequently use isolation to control, intimidate and facilitate their abuse. With more and more communities facing a lock down, victims find themselves literally imprisoned with their abusers, with none of their usual support systems (i.e. work, school, community) available to escape the violence. It’s a situation that some have described as a “ticking time bomb” (https://nomore.org/listening-from-home/).

“As a survivor of domestic and gun violence, I’ve been describing the situation of women and children being isolated at home right now with an abuser as a powder keg,” said Kate Ranta, featured in FINDING JENN’S VOICE and author of Killing Kate: A Story of Turning Abuse and Tragedy into Transformation and Triumph.“ Abusers thrive in situations exactly like this, where they have complete power and control. Their victims are trapped, and it’s extremely volatile and dangerous.”

During this time of uncertainty and fear, many people are turning to online resources for information and support. Voices4Change.net is a digital resource for intimate partner violence survivors and professionals. The site offers online training for healthcare professionals and law enforcement, discussion forums for survivors and professionals, and a portal to FINDING JENN’S VOICE.

FINDING JENN’S VOICE is an award-winning documentary film which examines the risks of homicide during pregnancy and reveals the nature of abusive relationships. Featuring the stories of survivors of intimate partner homicide attempts and grounded in the research of leading domestic violence experts, the film paints a picture of intimate partner violence that looks beyond the black eye.

Filmmaker and social worker Tracy Schott observes, “Film is a powerful medium in creating social change. Through this website, we hope to change the horrific statistics and consequences of intimate partner violence by helping people recognize abusive relationships before they become deadly. Given the increased dangers associated with social distancing, I think it’s important to remove any financial obstacles to getting this information where it can save lives.”

Schott has partnered with a number of organizations who are helping to get the word out to their constituents about this offer: Conference on Crimes Against Women, Global Peace Film Festival, Global Rights for Women, JWI (Jewish Women International Alliance to End Domestic Abuse), Respond Against Violence, Women Count USA, and 1GEN have all pledged to support this effort. “We’re committed to offering this service for free for the month of April but hope to find the support to continue to do so indefinitely,” says Schott.

Individuals and organizations interested in joining Voices4Change are encouraged to reach out to info@voices4change.net.

How open source ad blockers could save you 2 hours a week

The results of open source ad blockers show they are effective at removing ads.

Some of the results of a new study on open source ad blockers. Some ad blockers block the add and leave white space, but uBlock Origin cuts all ads and makes more content viewable on the screen.

A new study shows open source ad blockers would save the average Internet user more than 100 hours a year while also saving energy and pollution.

Although free and open source ad blockers save energy and are good for the environment, people use them primarily to block annoying ads and save themselves time.”

— Professor Joshua Pearce

HOUGHTON, MI, US, March 31, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — A new study meant to investigate energy conservation of free and open source ad blockers has unexpectedly shown that Internet ads are wasting shocking amounts of your time.

More importantly, the results show how you can get that time back. The study estimates that the average Internet user would save over 100 hours a year by using uBlock Origin, a free and open source ad blocker. “uBlock Origin was the most effective ad blocker tested, but all ad blockers save time, energy and money”, explained Joshua Pearce, a Professor of Engineering at Michigan Technological University.

The results show that page load time dropped 11% with AdBlock+, 22% with Privacy Badger, and 28% with uBlock Origin. These are not significant on a single page, but Internet users spend more than half of their time online rapidly clicking through websites spending less than 15 seconds on a given page. “With all these clicks, the additional time to load ads really starts to add up,” says Pearce.

The article “Energy Conservation with Open Source Ad Blockers” published in the journal Technologies was originally conceived to address rising energy consumption. Internet-related electricity consumption is rising rapidly as global Internet users spend more than 6.5 hours per day online. Americans, for example, have more than doubled the time they spend online since 2000 to almost 24 hours a week. Open source ad blockers have the potential to reduce the time and thus electricity spent by eliminating ads during Internet browsing and video streaming.

In the study, three open source ad blockers were tested against a no-ad blocker control. Page load times were recorded for browsing a representative selection of the globally most-accessed websites including web searching (like Google, Yahoo and Bing), information (like weather.com) and news sites (like CNN, Fox and the New York Times). In addition, the study analyzed the time spent watching ads on videos for both trending and non-trending content. This part of the study was more challenging because of the lack of data on what ratio of YouTube watching time is spent on trending and non-trending content. The time wasted viewing ads per video ranged from 0.06% up to staggering 21%. Thus, total hours lost to loading ads was only recorded for browsing.

“Overall, the results showed that the energy wasted loading ads is not trivial,” summarized Pearce. As a lot of the electricity used for running computers continues to come from coal, which causes air pollution and premature death, the study analyzed the potential for ad blockers to save American lives. The results were shocking: the energy conserved if everyone in the United States used the open source ad blocker would save over 36 Americans lives per year.

Electricity costs money, so cutting ads could also save consumers money. Pearce said, “In the United States, if all Internet users enabled Privacy Badger on their computers, Americans would save more than $91 million annually.” Globally, the results of the investigation were even more striking. uBlock Origin could save global consumers more than $1.8 billion/year.

Pearce points out, “This study was done before everyone was forced to stay home because of the COVID-19 pandemic, so all the values can be viewed as conservative under estimates.” Overall, the study found open source ad blockers are a potentially effective technology for energy conservation.

“Although free and open source ad blockers save energy and are good for the environment, people use them primarily to block annoying ads and save themselves time,” concludes Pearce.

GLOBAL RADIO CURRENTLY SEARCHING FOR NEW MUSIC & CONTENT

Bruce Iglauer, President – Alligator Records

David Haerle, President – CMA Label Group

Dana Cooper, Independent Artist / Producer

AirPlay Direct is a premiere digital delivery / distribution company, brand and platform for engaging radio and airplay worldwide.

As a direct result of AirPlay Direct's outstanding service, we’re able to make a much greater worldwide radio impact than ever before. They’re the best!”

— Bruce Iglauer, President – Alligator Records

FRANKLIN, TENNESSEE, UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, March 31, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — During this currently volatile and disruptive professional environment, everyone is feeling the negative impacts surrounding the professional music community slow down; global radio is no exception. For various financial and logistical reasons, labels and Indie artists are being forced to slow down, or even quit submitting new music to radio.

You may have already been contacted by stations familiar with your music, or noticed a few press releases and notices from stations requesting and looking for new and various types of content, i.e.; music for airplay, videos links for placement on their station website, phone interviews, new station IDs, and Skype artist performances for their listeners.

These radio programmers and music lovers have and will continue to spin new, emerging and classic artists that are not signed to major labels, or are not allowed into the very strict “Top 40” mainstream.

These dedicated music aficionados are ultimately the tastemakers of the world. They can and will play the tracks that they love; why, because they can. They enjoy discovering new music, and vintage recordings that they then share with their fans, their listeners. Fans of DJs, quickly turn into new fans of the artists those DJs play.

Do you have a global radio strategy for 2020? If not, you may want to ask yourself… why not?

"As an independent artist it is imperative that I find economical and effective ways to market, promote, and distribute my music to radio. Through AirPlay Direct’s Eco-System I am able to introduce my music legacy to radio programmers and music professionals all over the globe. With the ability to track in real time who is downloading my songs I’ve begun building relationships with DJs and programmers that were never possible before.

In 2015 I launched a traditional radio promotion campaign for my independent release "Building a Human Being. After mailing hundreds of CDs and several months of follow-up calls and emails I thought the project's life had reached an end. When "No Second Coming" from that same CD was selected for AirPlay Direct's “Global Radio Showcase" Volume 5 "Americana Unlimited", I felt a renewed sense of hope. I was overjoyed when programmers at radio stations all over the world immediately began downloading literally every track from that 2015 CD. AirPlayDirect.com/DanaCooperBuildingAHumanBeing

The AirPlay Direct Eco-System levels the playing field for independent artists like myself. AirPlay Direct’s global radio download tracking reports make it possible for me to track which stations are downloading my music for airplay… in real-time.

Video Marketing Agency Releases Remote Video Content Production From Your Remote Office

Remote Video Capture supports professionals working remotely to keep up thought leadership and content marketing.

New York Video Marketing Agency, MultiVision Digital, releases Remote Video Capture for content marketing and thought leadership goals.

NEW YORK, NY, UNITED STATES, March 31, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — MultiVision Digital, recognized as a top New York Video Marketing Agency (www.nyccorporateVideoProduction.com), releases Remote Video Capture (www.RVCbyMVD.com) to support professionals working remotely to keep up thought leadership and content marketing.

Now professional firms in legal, accounting and consulting can be impactful from their remote office with Remote Video Capture. Without any video crew required, Remote Video Capture uses smartphones, a mobile app while maintaining the professional services of a video director.

With Remote Video Capture allowing the creation of thought leadership video content from anywhere in just minutes, it solves the greatest challenges that legal marketing teams and accounting marketing teams have in during the COVID-19 crisis – keeping a human connection.

"Video is a great communication solution in any economy, but in the COVID 19 economy – it is even more critical. With the majority of the B2B workforce working remotely, video marketing can add a level of human connection when we can not connect. That is what Remote Video Capture is all about." states Robert Weiss, President of top New York Video Marketing Agency, MultiVision Digital.

Video is what people want and are drawn to. Especially when they are busy because they know that video gives them the most amount of information in the shortest time. And giving information, while maintaining a human connection, is what makes video such a powerful sales tool for legal marketing and accounting marketing teams.

Most marketers will tell you that in today's COVID-19 economy, it's not about stopping any marketing, its about doing it with the right message and as personally as you can. As people get settled in working from home, they will need to find new and innovative ways to continue getting the word out about their service offerings.

Weiss continues relays "We really want to help out our society during the COVID-19 crisis, but we’re not health care providers and we don’t have a manufacturing plant that we can change to produce product. But what we can do is help people communicate through the most powerful medium there is in digital; which is video."

US auto “intenders” split on COVID-19 effect – 41% will delay new-car plans; 45% expect “no impact”

GfK AutoMobility™ delivers gold-standard research among consumers who plan to buy or lease a new car

NEW YORK, NY, UNITED STATES, March 31, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — New insights from GfK’s top-quality research with auto “intenders” show that the COVID-19 crisis will delay many new-vehicle purchases and leases – but nearly half of potential buyers said the virus will have “no impact” on their plans.

GfK AutoMobility™ collects data throughout the year among actual vehicle intenders – those who plan to buy or lease a new car. The survey now includes questions about the effects of the Coronavrius crisis, and interviews from March 16th to 25th with 7,728 intenders showed a split between those who remained remarkably confident and those who expected to hold off for at least a month.

Click here to learn more about GfK AutoMobility™ research

Roughly half (45%) of intenders reported that the Coronavirus would have “no impact” on their plans, while 41% expected to delay their purchases. Among those who expected to hold off, anticipated delays were
• up to 1 month: 6%
• more than 1, less than 3 months: 20%
• more than 3, less than 6 months: 27%
• more than 6 months: 47%

In addition, 16% of intenders said they planned to shop or purchase online, rather than visiting dealerships, and 9% reported they might spend less on a vehicle.

The “no impact” answer was highly correlated to generation, with 59% of intenders in the 65-plus age group saying they expected to continue with their existing purchase or lease plans. By contrast, only one-third (32%) of those in the 30-to-44 group had the same level of optimism.

Income and gender made little difference to likelihood to say “no impact” – but they were significant factors among those who expected to delay. Women were much more likely than men, for example, to anticipate 6-month-plus delays (55% versus 40%).

Similarly, intenders earning less than $50,000 were much more likely to expect a 6-month-plus delay, compared to those who make $100,000 a year or more (57% versus 39%).

“These are early days when it comes to COVID-19’s effects on the industry, and we are seeing manufacturers adapt quickly – providing resources for intenders to continue their vehicle searches and make purchases,” said Julie Kenar, SVP (Consulting) on GfK’s AutoMobility team. “We will be tracking these important metrics, helping the manufacturers understand how they can meet the changing needs of consumers and also prepare for the virus’s effects on the industry as a whole.”

“Although there is clearly some uncertainty in the market, there are also encouraging signs,” said Jim Ehrlich, SVP (Brand Consumer Experience) at GfK AutoMobility. “New vehicle intenders are pragmatic – 15% of them will seek digital shopping experiences instead of visiting dealerships in person to mitigate risk while still seeking to acquire another vehicle.”

To find out how AutoMobility research can benefit your brand, contact Julie Kenar (julie.kenar@gfk.com) or Jim Ehrlich (jim.ehrlich@gfk.com).

GfK AutoMobility is the leading Auto Intenders Brand and Attitude Insights research in the US – revealing how consumers perceive brands, how they compare to their competitive sets, and – more importantly – why consumers feel this way. Since 1982, GfK’s Automotive Purchase Funnel has been the bedrock for analysis and insights throughout the automotive industry.

ESFI Provides Work From Home Electrical Safety Tips

Electrical Safety While Working From Home

The tips address emerging electrical safety concerns amidst the COVID-19 outbreak.

ARLINGTON, VA, USA, March 31, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — The Electrical Safety Foundation International (ESFI) recently released an infographic, “Electrical Safety While Working From Home,” as consumers shift from working in an office setting to working from their homes. The safety tips provided highlight potential electrical safety hazards and how to prevent them.

“Transitioning from working in an office to now working from home may present new electrical safety concerns in your home that have not existed before,” said ESFI President Brett Brenner. Our new resource was designed to keep you and your family safe from while you are at home. We encourage you to share this free resource to reach your audience, whether it’s with your family or throughout your community.”

Home fires are more deadly and costly than ever. While the number of total fires and fire injuries are decreasing, property damage and fire deaths are on the rise. Each year more than 35,000 home fires cause over 1,130 injuries, 500 deaths, and $1.4 billion in property damage. The infographic highlights steps consumers can take in order to reduce the number of electrically-related fires, fatalities, injuries, and property loss while working from home.

ABOUT ESFI
The Electrical Safety Foundation International (ESFI) sponsors National Electrical Safety Month each May to increase public awareness of the electrical hazards around us at home, work, school, and play. ESFI is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated exclusively to promoting electrical safety. For more information about ESFI and electrical safety, visit esfi.org.

Measure Protocol offers free access to its mobile-only community for the market research industry

Highly engaged community of young adults in United States, United Kingdom and Canada can provide key perspective in a time of change and uncertainty

The best way we can offer support in this time of need…is access to our community of thousands of highly engaged respondents that can help keep us all informed and educated.”

— Owen Hanks, CEO, Measure Protocol

LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM, March 31, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — Measure Protocol, the industry's first blockchain-powered marketplace for person-based data, is offering the market research industry free access to its community of young people. This mobile-only community is proven to be highly responsive and engaged, allowing researchers to gain access to insights from a harder-to-reach population. In a swiftly changing global ecosystem, efficiently tracking consumer sentiment and behaviors is vital for solid decision making.

Owen Hanks, CEO of Measure Protocol, said, "Our team thought a lot about the best way we can offer support in this time of need. As a small company we only have limited resources, but the one thing that we can offer, is access to our community of thousands of highly engaged respondents that can help keep us all informed and educated amidst all changes that are happening."

For the next three months, Measure will partner with market research businesses and brands to provide access to its consumer research panel. The growing panel, which is primarily made up of young adults ages 18-34 in the U.S., U.K. and Canada, consists of over 25,000 users who have downloaded the MSR app to share data and earn rewards. Primary research has shown the community to have extraordinarily high engagement and fast response times, due in part to the immediacy of the mobile environment and a positive end-to-end app experience.

To participate, partners will only be asked to help cover the incentive for respondents in order to reward them for their time. A large part of Measure's vision for the future of market research includes fair compensation and a positive experience, resulting in higher quality data. During the company's recent pilot with market research industry leaders, which included a fair compensation model, 85% of users were satisfied with the offers received. This clearly illustrates the benefits of rewarding respondents fairly for their time and commitment.

Hanks continued, "It's our intention to facilitate as many requests as possible during this time and to that end we are hoping to connect with brands and agencies that want to understand broad metrics of young adults. We ask only that any potential requests are mobile-friendly. Getting a peek into what their younger demographic of customers, consumers, employees and citizens think and feel is invaluable during a situation like this one."

About Measure Protocol
Measure was founded in 2018 by a group of media, ad tech, and market research technology veterans. Created to help consumers take ownership of their data and address data quality issues for buyers, Measure is an open blockchain-based protocol that facilitates a marketplace for person-based data where individuals take control of their data and monetize it directly with researchers, advertisers and brands. Consumers contribute data by completing surveys and other data-generating tasks or by providing access to existing data sources such as health and location from within the company’s MSR App for iOS. Founded on principles of data sovereignty, privacy, transparency and fair compensation, Measure provides an ecosystem that addresses challenges faced by the market research, advertising and AI industries. Measure Protocol won the 2019 ASC / MRS Award for Best Technology Innovation. www.measureprotocol.com @measureprotocol
