Coming to a gas pump near you…

first_img Your moments at the gas pump are about to get more entertainingThe next time you find yourself pumping gas, don’t be surprised if Miles offers to keep you company. He’s not an attendant and he isn’t a friendly good Samaritan.Miles is the name given to the first ever BP Personality Pump, an interactive smart pump that will first start appearing at BP stations this year. Miles uses proprietary technology allowing him to “speak” with consumers as they are filling their tanks. Miles receives responses in real-time through a touchscreen tablet allowing consumers to interact with him via an array of entertainment options.“We know that most people don’t enjoy pumping gas. So we asked ourselves, how can we make those moments spent at the pump more fun,” said Donna Sanker, chief marketing officer of BP Fuels North America. “With the BP Personality Pump, we hope to redefine perceptions of the routine fill-up and build a meaningful relationship with our consumers, giving them a fulfilling and entertaining experience during the time they spend with us.”Miles is programmed to interact with consumers in several different ways. During their visit, consumers will have the opportunity to engage Miles by playing music trivia, selecting songs to play through Pandora or even by recording a video e-card that they can then share on their social media channels. And, upon finishing filling up their tank, consumers will also have the opportunity to send themselves a text message with the content they created during their interaction with Miles. This message will include a link to the Pandora station they chose as well as a special return offer.The goal, according to BP, is to make the otherwise routine task of filling a gas tank more fun and memorable.Miles first appeared last November in the Chicago and New York Metro areas.

NFU Opposes Farm Bill Extension

first_img By Andy Eubank – Dec 19, 2012 Home Indiana Agriculture News NFU Opposes Farm Bill Extension The National Farmers Union Board of Directors has passed a resolution opposing an extension of the 2008 Farm Bill in lieu of passage of a new five-year farm bill. NFU President Roger Johnson says the clock is ticking and we are quickly going into the final hour of the lame duck session with rural America’s future hanging in the balance. He said lawmakers must quickly come together to pass a five-year farm bill. According to Johnson – a short-term extension of the farm bill would only cause a litany of problems that will not be easily fixed when a new farm bill is eventually signed into law. Johnson applauded the continued efforts of the Senate and House Agriculture Committees to negotiate for the passage of a comprehensive, five-year farm bill – noting Senate passage of bipartisan legislation that saves 23-billion dollars and House Ag Committee passage of a version that would save 35-billion dollars.Source: NAFB News Service Previous articleSeed Consultants Market Watch 10:41 update with Gary Wilhelmi 12/19/2012Next articleRFA and Growth Energy Joint Statement on European Commission Vote to Enact Import Tariff Andy Eubank Facebook Twitter SHARE SHARE Facebook Twitter NFU Opposes Farm Bill Extensionlast_img read more

Emergency funds for targeted journalist unable to get medical treatment

first_img The 2020 pandemic has challenged press freedom in Africa Help by sharing this information Reporters Without Borders is providing temporary financial assistance to Awa Ehoura, a journalist who presented the 8 p.m. news programme on state-owned Radio-Télévision Ivoirienne (RTI) when Laurent Gbagbo was president. Like other prominent people regarded as supporters of the former president, her bank accounts have been frozen since his fall from power in early 2011. And, as a result of being suspended by RTI, she ceased to have medical insurance cover on 12 January, so she has been left without any way to get treatment for her diabetes.As a result, Reporters Without Borders yesterday sent her funds to cover her medical bills and the medicine she needs to buy.“We have often enough said what we thought of the role RTI frequently played as a propaganda tool,” the organization said. “But Awa Ehoura is a journalist, not a criminal. It is unreasonable and unjust that such a sanction intended to punish her supposed support for the former regime has left her in such dire straits. We are sending her this money as a humanitarian gesture.”Reporters Without Borders added: “The treatment suffered by this journalist should alert public opinion and the government. The way she has been marginalized is incompatible with the need for justice and national reconciliation. It is time to lift the order freezing assets for those who were unjustly targeted.” October 16, 2020 Find out more News News October 29, 2020 Find out more Côte d’IvoireAfrica January 20, 2012 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Emergency funds for targeted journalist unable to get medical treatment Follow the news on Côte d’Ivoire Côte d’IvoireAfrica to go further RSF’s recommendations for protecting press freedom during Côte d’Ivoire’s elections Threats against journalists in run-up to Côte d’Ivoire’s presidential election RSF_en November 27, 2020 Find out more Reports News Photo : Awa Ehoura Receive email alerts Organisation last_img read more

We condemn this act of cowardice and we offer our full support to our colleague Branko Trickovski.”The attack has come at time of extreme political tension between Prime Minster Nikola Gruevski and the opposition, with both sides holding violent demonstrations in the past few days in the capital, Skopje.The tension dates back to February, when opposition leader Zoran Zaev produced audio recordings indicating that the government had illegally eavesdropped on thousands of people and had put pressure on journalists, judges and others.Freedom of information has been declining for the past five years in Macedonia. In recent days, foreign journalists were arrested and held for several hours after going to Kumanovo to cover demonstrations. The number of independent Macedonian media outlets has also fallen steadily as a result of exorbitant damages awards or closure orders issued without reference to a court.
