Further research a few contacts whose beat fits your content and trace their online footprint. Start following them on their professional social accounts and keep an eye out for their recent work or contributions to other online media like podcasts. Commenting on their latest post or podcast appearance, or giving your genuine opinion about a topic you’re both well-versed in, is a great way to start off your pitch. Obviously their beat must align with the topic of the content you plan to pitch, but make sure you also run through the second mental checklist: Do they cite content produced by brands? Do their posts see a lot of engagement? Do they cover only breaking news or only write personal essays and critics, or do they feature timely and evergreen content? Do they demonstrate values that align with your brand? Researching who to contact can be time consuming, especially when initially starting a media outreach strategy.

“When people hear concerns about democracies declining into authoritarianism, they expect that moment to come in a singular thunderclap where everyone can see that this is the time,” said Ian Bassin, who’s leading the new group. “In reality, often times, democracies decline over a period of years that happen through a series of much smaller steps.” They started by submitting 50 Freedom of Information Act requests this week that they believe will confirm their suspicions. The plan is to bring what they find to reporters, build it into pressure for congressional oversight with the help of a campaign director they’ll hire, and, as necessary, to file lawsuits. They’re also hoping to establish themselves as a base for government employees worried about ethics violations — up to and including becoming whistleblowers — and are hoping that their website, https://unitedtoprotectdemocracy.

Treasures such as Sir Harry Ricardo’s first internal combustion unit (a 2-litre single-cylinder pump engine built between 1901 and 1903) and a Mark V tank motor (Britain’s first mass-produced engine – used in WWI). Then you see a viscous coupling (used in Group B rally cars and numerous road cars), a twin-clutch gearbox from the Veyron, the JCB Dieselmax engines, the latest Focus RS engine and then, the pièce desistance, the huge hall where McLaren’s V8 twin-turbo engine is assembled. All are Ricardo designed, engineered or built. Some are all three. This is a company proud of its history, as a recently opened Centenary Innovation Centre that celebrates its achievements shows.

Due to the low temperature of the star, all seven of the planets orbit closer to it than Mercury does to our Sun. As a result, if you stood on the surface of one of them, you'd see the others appearing larger than the Moon in our sky. Weather patterns could also be completely unlike those on Earth - the planets may be tidally locked to their star, meaning both sides will be permanently locked in either day or night. This would create strong winds blowing from one side to the other, and extreme temperature differences. Exciting Result This is the most exciting result I have seen in the 14 years of Spitzer operations," said Sean Carey, manager of NASA's Spitzer Science Center. "Spitzer will follow up in the fall to further refine our understanding of these planets so that the James Webb Space Telescope can follow up. More observations of the system are sure to reveal more secrets.

It captures 4K video files at 30fps and lets you choose frames to save as 8-megapixel JPEGs after the event. Unlike regular video modes, though, you’re not limited to a widescreen aspect ratio. Meanwhile, Post Focus records a short video of the scene while sweeping through the focus. On playback, you can tap anywhere in the frame to see a shot with that area in focus, and then choose that frame to save. I’m not sure how often it’s likely to come in useful but it’s a fun trick that works extremely well. The LX15 also includes time-lapse and stop-motion animation modes with the latter automatically converting a sequence of photos into a 4K or 1080p video. Panasonic LX15 review: Autofocus, performance and 4K video The large sensor and wide-aperture lens give a shallow depth of field that really flatters portrait subjects but it also means that focusing errors are more noticeable.

An telecom operator is trying to fix a major privacy problem that many of us are unaware about. SEE ALSO: India's richest man is done with giving away 4G services for free to 100 million users Vodafone, India's second largest telecom operator by subscribers, has introduced a new way for its subscribers, especially women, to top up talktime credit to their phones without disclosing their phone number to strangers. The new program, called Private Recharge Mode, allows people to add credit to their phones with a unique code instead of their phone number. It might sound like a non-issue to many, but in India, where over 90% of the billion mobile phone users are on prepaid connection, walk into mom-and-pop shops and hand out their phone numbers to top up their accounts.

After the first poster and trailer for Alien:Covenant scared the bejeezus out of us, we expected something equally sinister from the new, four-minute prologue to the movie. But it's exactly the opposite: We get to meet the crew of the colony ship Covenant before things start going awry, and while there's a lot of uneasy looks and one pretty scary situation (especially if you've watched the original Alien), do not expect to see alien claws ripping through human flesh in this one. SEE ALSO: It's not aliens. It's never aliens. Stop saying it's aliens. According to the YouTube clip's description, the prologue shows us the "main crew (all couples) and their android, Walter, enjoy their final meal together before cryosleep." That explains the clip's title: "Last Supper," but given how the original movie ends, we don't doubt that for many of these crew members, this was, in fact, their last supper. Read more...

Every question was critical of Trump. But for all the displeasure from the audience and hundreds of interruptions, the mild-mannered Lance never engaged in any testy exchanges. He went a few minutes over the full 90 minutes budgeted. And by the end of the meeting, the crowd — if not entirely pleased by his answers — gave him a round of applause. Most of all, the crowd wanted to see Lance and his fellow Republicans push back against the Trump administration. Annette Cordasco Longo of Bridgewater wanted to know “what you plan to do and how you would mobilize the other Republicans to push back against this man when he makes delusional statements? Lance said he would speak his mind when he disagrees with the president, but it didnt satisfy the crowd, who launched into a chant of “Push back!” Lance also angered the crowd when he said he wanted Trump to release his tax returns but thought a bill sponsored by his Democratic New Jersey House colleague, Bill Pascrell, to force Trump or the IRS to turn over his tax returns to the House Ways and Means committee “went too far.

.. After a short break, Ferrari decided that its existing cars also need a new name with their mid-cycle updates. This is how the FF became the GTC4Lusso. While this name isnt half bad, Ferrari took the silly road once again by renaming the F12berlinetta into the 812 Superfast. Theres nothing wrong with 812, which stands for 800 PS (789 horsepower) and 12 cylinders, but Superfast? Have I been living under a rock and Ferrari is now owned by toy manufacturer Matchbox? I get it, the 812 Superfast is indeed impressively fast, but someone at Ferrari is also incredibly childish. Or is it superchildish nowadays? I dont know what the guy in charge of vehicle names has been drinking recently, but I sure hope it doesnt spread to other brands. I hate to see other companies name their cars so that they can sell more t-shirts and smartphone covers to hipsters.

and is glad he continues to reach out to old friends. “He’s a prisoner in the White House,” she said. “He is under the influence of all these people who are giving him the wrong advice.” Trump’s search for a secretary of state particularly captured what can seem like a chaotic hiring process. After his advisers had narrowed down the list to a small group of finalists, Trump took a sudden meeting with Rex Tillerson and then decided he wanted the ExxonMobil CEO to lead Foggy Bottom. A number of Trump’s friends and advisers said they didnt see Tillerson as a strong candidate, while Trump told others that the CEO was the emerging favorite. Trump’s aides have also learned ways to sway his decision-making. After Tillerson had been confirmed, Trump spiked Tillerson’s choice for deputy secretary, Elliott Abrams, a seasoned GOP foreign policy hand. Trump had read Abramscritical comments about him last year in a briefing book before meeting with Abrams in the Oval Office — a discovery that didnt seem accidental.

SEE ALSO: Japan is trying to help clueless tourists figure out their high-tech toilets According to telecommunications giant KDDI, the app will predict if toilets are in use by using sensors installed on stall doors to determine whether they are open or closed.

"People often waste time by looking around for an available toilet on various floors or by waiting until one becomes available," KDDI spokesman Daisuke Maruo told the Japan Times. Read more...
