Digital Editors Significantly OutEarn Those at Print Magazines

first_img Editor-in-chiefManaging editorAssociate editor Methodology This could partially be the result of a pair of well established industry trends: editors being asked to take on additional responsibilities without a commensurate bump in compensation, and companies eschewing older, more experienced editors in favor of the younger, cheaper, and more digitally minded. At every level, editors who reported working more than 50 hours per week saw considerably smaller year-over-year increases in compensation than those working 50 hours or less per week. Click through the slideshow for a detailed breakdown of the results, or simply click the thumbnails below. When looking past the financial data and purely examining the number of respondents in each sub-category — bearing in mind that there were 15.4 percent fewer participants in the survey this year than last year (1,060 in total) — editors-in-chief and managing editors are, in general, younger and less experienced than they were a year ago. While not as pronounced at the managing editor level as the others, the most frustrating determining factor of editorial salaries continues to persist: gender. Male editors-in-chief, for example, outearned their female counterparts by an average of nearly $14,000 in 2016 — $94,000 to $80,200, a difference of 17.2 percent. It’s worth noting, perhaps, that the gender gap has narrowed slightly since last year at every level, especially among managing editors, where the difference is down to 6.2 percent in total compensation. Similarly, editors who report working for magazines that primarily publish on the web significantly outearn editors who say their magazines are still primarily read in print, a trend that is magnified at the editor-in-chief level. Participants in the survey self-identify their primary platform as either print or digital, and, unsurprisingly, a greater share of survey respondents identify as primarily digital editors with each passing year. As with previous years, at every level, editors of mass consumer magazines, as well as those based in the New York City area, far out-earn their counterparts in the B2B and niche sectors, and those based elsewhere in the country, although both of these trends appear far less pronounced in entry-level positions.

Moving down the hierarchy, while base salaries increased significantly for editors at the managing or associate levels, fewer bonuses meant increases in total compensation were more modest: 2.3 percent for managing editors, and 7.4 percent for associate editors. Amid increased turnover and tightening budgets begotten by an ever-challenging financial situation, editorial salaries in the magazine industry remained more-or-less stable in 2016 compared to the year before, while female editors continue to be undercompensated, on average, compared to their male colleagues. Data for the 2016 Folio: Editorial Salary Survey was collected via online survey over a period of three months in 2016 in conjunction with Readex Research, who tabulated the results. In total, 1,060 magazine media professionals completed the 41-question survey. The margin of error based on the tabulated responses is +/- 3.1 percentage points at the 95 percent confidence level.

Game of Thrones season 8 to have more intimate sex scenes than

first_imgMelissandre and Jon Snow in Season 5 of ‘Game of Thrones’screenshot/youtubeGame of Thrones season eight is going to air in April and with the final season, fans will get to see the tragic end of Jon Snow and Daenerys Targaryen’s love story. Over the years, viewers enjoyed watching intimate sex scenes between several characters and are hoping to see more of it in season 8.Over the years, nudity has become an integral part of the Game of Thrones. At the same time, many can even argue on the notion that for a TV series, scenes involving nudity and sex may have been included to attract viewership. But fans have learned this that in this epic drama, nudity is depicted as the harsh reality of life and has only progressed the story further.There were more sex scenes in the earlier seasons than the last season seven. Now, as the story is coming to an end, the characters are more busy fighting the war rather than getting intimate with each other. There was a time when fans just referred Game of Thrones as nothing but a sex show but now, we have witnessed that the show has more fights, more drama, and more dragons.In the final Game of Thrones season, our heroes — Jon, Sansa, Arya, Daenerys, and others — have one goal only: to kill the Night King. At the same time, there are several theories on Cersei Lannister which you can check here. Cersei in ‘Mother’s Mercy’HBOSince the final season will be more focused on the fights between the Army of Living with the Army of Dead; and Starks/Targaryens fighting Lannisters, chances are pretty slim that we get to see some nudity in the upcoming season of Game of Thrones.That being said, there are rumours that we get to see the marriage between Jon Snow and Daenerys Targaryen and if that happens then our favourite characters may be seeing spending one night enjoying themselves.Besides all these speculations, the final season has a lot of angles to cover and the showrunners would have focused on wrapping all the stories rather than showing intimate sequences between the characters.Game of Thrones season 8 will premier in April on HBO and other streaming services.last_img read more

Boris Johnson set to become next UK PM

first_imgBoris Johnson, a leadership candidate for Britain`s Conservative Party, leaves his office in London, Britain on 22 July .Photo: ReutersBoris Johnson is expected to be elected leader of Britain’s governing Conservative Party and the country’s next prime minister on Tuesday, tasked with following through on his “do or die” pledge to deliver Brexit in just over three months time.Johnson and his rival, foreign secretary Jeremy Hunt, have spent the last month crisscrossing the country seeking to win over the less than 200,000 Conservative Party members who will choose Britain’s new leader.Voting closed at 1600 GMT on Monday and the result is due to be announced on Tuesday morning. The winner will formally take over as prime minister on Wednesday afternoon, succeeding Theresa May, who stepped down over her failure to get parliament to ratify her Brexit deal.Johnson, a former London mayor who resigned as foreign minister a year ago over May’s Brexit plans, is the clear favourite to replace her, with several polls putting him on around 70 per cent.He will inherit a political crisis over Britain’s exit from the European Union, currently due to take place on 31 October. Johnson must persuade the EU to revive talks on a withdrawal deal that it has been adamant cannot be reopened, or else lead Britain into the economic uncertainty of an unmanaged departure.The only deal on the table has been rejected three times by parliament and many lawmakers – including pro-EU rebels in the Conservative Party – are also vowing to block Johnson trying to take Britain out of the EU without a deal.He has said he would ramp up preparations for a no-deal to try to force the EU’s negotiators to make changes to the accord.”We will of course be pushing our plan into action, and getting ready to come out on October 31st, come what may…do or die, come what may,” Johnson told TalkRadio last month.Johnson is not likely to start announcing key ministerial appointments until Wednesday, but his victory in the leadership contest is expected to prompt several resignations in the deeply divided Conservative Party.Two junior ministers have already quit over Johnson’s willingness to leave the EU without transition arrangements and finance minister Philip Hammond and justice minister David Gauke have both said they plan to resign before they are sacked.Brexit without a divorce deal – as anti-EU hardliners would like – would abruptly wrench the world’s fifth largest economy away from the bloc. Critics say this would undermine global growth, buffet financial markets and weaken London’s position as the pre-eminent international financial centre.last_img

HC refuses to advance hearing of former top cops plea

first_imgKolkata: The Calcutta High Court on Tuesday refused to advance hearing of former Kolkata Police Commissioner Rajeev Kumar’s prayer for quashing CBI’s notice in connection with its probe in the Saradha chit fund scam. The CBI moved the court of Justice Shivakant Prasad seeking that the hearing, scheduled to be held on July 2, be advanced.

Justice Prasad, however, refused to advance hearing in the case and said that it would be held on July 2 as fixed earlier. The HC had on June 12 scheduled the hearing of the petition filed by Kumar, now the state CID Additional Director General, after the CBI lawyer raised the matter before it.
