Smartphone-totting and tablet-hugging consumers demand screens tailored to their preferences, with content custom-made to suit their needs and delivered via a seamless interface that provides a flawless user experience. Some also want to be able to comment and participate in the content creation and development process. Which means, content now needs to be curated, customized, converged, and cloud-based. So, publishers and content creators/aggregators big and small are racing to achieve faster times to market. Many small publishers, says Nishith Arora, chairman of MPS Limited, are leveraging technology to rationalize and automate the author-to-reader processes. “They are starting to do away with ad hoc publishing workflows with manual tracking systems, and with decentralized and disparate systems that are often redundant, tedious and error-prone with ineffective reporting mechanisms. The anticipated benefits from adopting publishing technology platforms—faster time to market, for instance—have driven these companies to overcome the size constraints while encouraging them to think strategically. ” MPS’s flagship publishing management platform DigiCore, for instance, has effectively shaved the production time at one small U. K. -based publisher by 50% within a year. For SourceHOV and its sister company Rule 14, a Big Data specialist, the shift to automation has resulted in more content creation and enrichment projects.

For example, there is Man of Law IPA, one of the brewery's flagship brands. Niebauer noted that Chaucer wrote about "how people are and who people are in a community. "The Canterbury Tales was an interesting place to look for beer names, and it's never been done before. "To us, the name of a beer should be something fun, something with a sense of humor for when things aren't going right. Although none of them play golf, their other flagship brand is called Duck Hook Cream Ale, a positive tribute to arguably the worst shot in golf. "We didn't know it was a golf term," Niebauer said. Golfers get it. Those that don't know golf don't know it's a golf term but still like the name.
NEW YORK — When Bob McKillop took over at Davidson in 1989, he kept a copy of Sports Illustrated in his office to show recruits. His willful naiveté to college basketball’s hierarchy allowed his cover-story ideals to overshadow his school's small-school budget. “He’s a dreamer,” said Matt Doherty, who coached with him the first three years at Davidson. “He was talking in our first year to alumni about being ranked in the Top 20 and playing games in Madison Square Garden that mattered. as head coach at Davidson, has come amid a backdrop of a generally dreadful year of college basketball. It’s being played at a historically slow pace, scoring is occurring at a historically low pace and television ratings are fluctuating somewhere between microscopic and non-existent. The game is over-coached, inconsistently officiated and the best teams ( Wisconsin , Kentucky and Virginia ) stress scoring efficiently over scoring in volume. The veteran coach often speaks of trying to play the “beautiful game,” something comparable to a symphony or the touch-touch artistry of Brazilian soccer. Davidson’s samba to the top of the Atlantic 10 is partly due to its prolific scoring offense (80. 6 ppg, good for No. 5 in the nation) and 10. 9 three-point field goals made per game.
