RSF_en News RSF begins research into mechanisms for protecting journalists in Latin America April 15, 2021 Find out more Organisation Brazil is now ranked 104th out of 180 countries, a position clearly unworthy of a country meant to be a regional model. It was ranked 58th in 2010. Why has this happened? The most important reason is increasing violence against journalists and a lack of political will at the highest level to protect journalists effectively. As well as the fall in the rankings, Brazil’s performance indicator, which measures the level of media freedom violations, rose from 25.78 in 2014 to 31.93 in 2015 – a significant deterioration.The Latin American giant nonetheless remains ahead of some of its regional neighbours such as Ecuador (109th), Guatemala (121st), Colombia (134th), Venezuela (139th), Mexico (149th) and Cuba (174th). In Brazil, an economic recession and political instability have reinforced the main obstacles to media freedom and the climate of hostility towards journalists. At the same time, media ownership continues to be concentrated in the hands of leading industrial families linked to the political class.The problem of Brazil’s “colonels,” which RSF described in 2013 in its report, “The country of 30 Berlusconis,” has continued unabated. The so-called “colonels’ are usually major landowners or industrialists who are also legislators or state governors and who control opinion-making in their regions because, directly or indirectly, they own several local media outlets. As a result, the media are heavily dependent on the centres of economic and political power.Brazilian media coverage of the country’s current political crisis has highlighted the problem. In a barely veiled manner, the leading national media have urged the public to help bring down President Dilma Rousseff. The journalists working for these media groups are clearly subject to the influence of private and partisan interests, and these permanent conflicts of interests are clearly very detrimental to the quality of their reporting.Brazil’s fall in the Index is also the result of the lack of a national mechanism for protecting journalists in danger and for combatting the prevailing impunity for crimes of violence against journalists, which is facilitated by the ubiquitous corruption.With seven journalists murdered in 2015 alone, Brazil continues to be the western hemisphere’s third deadliest country for media personnel, after Mexico and Honduras. All of them were investigating sensitive subjects such as corruption and organized crime.Organized crime’s firm hold on certain regions far from any major city makes covering these subjects particular complicated there, while the failure to punish most murders of journalists encourages their recurrence.Finally, there has been no let-up in the growing problem of military police violence against journalists during street demonstrations, a problem that began in 2013. Both Brazilian and foreign journalists covering demonstrations are often insulted, threatened or arbitrarily detained. They are also often directly targeted by demonstrators, who identify them with the owners of the media they work for.Published annually by RSF since 2002, the World Press Freedom Index measures the level of freedom available to journalists in 180 countries using the following criteria – pluralism, media independence, media environment and self-censorship, legislative environment, transparency, infrastructure, and abuses.Go to the RSF website to find out more about the 2016 World Press Freedom Index and the method used to compile it.

Our strategic priorities for 2021 include content, the Pinner experience, advertiser success and shopping. We plan to invest in these in the coming year. We expect R&D efforts to continue to focus on Pinner product, ad product and measurement investments. We intend to grow our headcount further, in particular to support our international expansion efforts. We also intend to scale our comprehension and brand marketing efforts in 2021. We think these investments will support long-term growth and continue to build the foundations for a scaled business over time.

The call begins today at 1:30 PM (PT) / 4:30 PM (ET). We have also posted to our investor relations website a letter to shareholders. This press release, including the reconciliations of certain non-GAAP measures to their nearest comparable GAAP measures, letter to shareholders and slide presentation are also available. A recording of the webcast will be available at investor.pinterestinc.com for 90 days. We have used, and intend to continue to use, our investor relations website at investor.pinterestinc.com as a means of disclosing material nonpublic information and for complying with our disclosure obligations under Regulation FD. Forward-looking statements This press release may contain forward-looking statements within the meaning of Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, and Section 21E of the Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, about us and our industry that involve substantial risks and uncertainties, including, among other things, statements about our future operational and financial performance. Words such as “believe,” “project,” “may,” “will,” “estimate,” “continue,” “anticipate,” “intend,” “expect,” “plan” and similar expressions are intended to identify forward-looking statements. These forward-looking statements are only predictions and may differ materially from actual results due to a variety of factors including: uncertainty regarding the duration and scope of the coronavirus referred to as COVID-19 pandemic; actions governments and businesses take in response to the pandemic, including actions that could affect levels of advertising activity; the impact of the pandemic and actions taken in response to the pandemic on global and regional economies and economic activity; the pace of recovery when the COVID-19 pandemic subsides; general economic uncertainty in key global markets and a worsening of global economic conditions or low levels of economic growth; the scope and impact of the recent outbreak of COVID-19 on our planned investments, operations, expenses, revenue, cash flow, liquidity and users; our ability to attract and retain Pinners and engagement levels; our ability to provide useful and relevant content; risks associated with new products and changes to existing products as well as other new business initiatives; our ability to maintain and enhance our brand and reputation; compromises in security; our financial performance and fluctuations in operating results; our dependency on internet search engines’ methodologies and policies; discontinuation, disruptions or outages in authentication by third-party login providers; changes by third-party login providers that restrict our access or ability to identify users; competition; our ability to scale our business and revenue model; our reliance on advertising revenue and our ability to attract and retain advertisers and effectively measure advertising campaigns; our ability to effectively manage growth and expand and monetize our platform internationally; our lack of operating history and ability to attain and sustain profitability; decisions that reduce short-term revenue or profitability or do not produce expected long-term benefits; risks associated with government actions, laws and regulations that could restrict access to our products or impair our business; litigation and government inquiries; privacy, data and other regulatory concerns; our ability to protect our intellectual property; real or perceived inaccuracies in metrics related to our business; disruption, degradation or interference with the hosting services we use and infrastructure; our ability to attract and retain personnel; and the dual class structure of our common stock and its effect of concentrating voting control with stockholders who held our capital stock prior to the completion of our initial public offering. These and other potential risks and uncertainties that could cause actual results to differ from the results predicted are more fully detailed in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2020, which is available on our investor relations website at investor.pinterestinc.com and on the SEC website at www.sec.gov. Additional information will be made available in our Annual Report on Form 10-K and other future reports that we may file with the SEC from time to time, which could cause actual results to vary from expectations. All information provided in this release and in the earnings materials is as of February 4, 2021. Undue reliance should not be placed on the forward-looking statements in this press release, which are based on information available to us on the date hereof. We undertake no duty to update this information unless required by law. About non-GAAP financial measures To supplement our condensed consolidated financial statements, which are prepared and presented in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States (“GAAP”), we use the following non-GAAP financial measures: Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA margin, non-GAAP costs and expenses (including non-GAAP cost of revenue, research and development, sales and marketing, and general and administrative), non-GAAP income (loss) from operations, non-GAAP net income and non-GAAP net income per share. The presentation of these financial measures is not intended to be considered in isolation, as a substitute for or superior to the financial information prepared and presented in accordance with GAAP. Investors are cautioned that there are material limitations associated with the use of non-GAAP financial measures as an analytical tool. In addition, these measures may be different from non-GAAP financial measures used by other companies, limiting their usefulness for comparative purposes. We compensate for these limitations by providing specific information regarding GAAP amounts excluded from these non-GAAP financial measures. We define Adjusted EBITDA as net income (loss) adjusted to exclude depreciation and amortization expense, share-based compensation expense, interest income, interest expense and other income (expense), net, provision for income taxes and, for the third quarter of 2020, a one-time payment for the termination of a future lease contract. Adjusted EBITDA margin is calculated by dividing Adjusted EBITDA by revenue. Non-GAAP costs and expenses (including non-GAAP cost of revenue, research and development, sales and marketing, and general and administrative) and non-GAAP net income exclude amortization of acquired intangible assets, share-based compensation expense and, for the third quarter of 2020, a one-time payment for the termination of a future lease contract. Non-GAAP income (loss) from operations is calculated by subtracting non-GAAP costs and expenses from revenue. Non-GAAP net income per share is calculated by dividing non-GAAP net income by diluted weighted-average shares outstanding. We use Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA margin, non-GAAP costs and expenses, non-GAAP income (loss) from operations, non-GAAP net income and non-GAAP net income per share to evaluate our operating results and for financial and operational decision-making purposes. We believe these non-GAAP financial measures help identify underlying trends in our business that could otherwise be masked by the effect of the income and expenses they exclude. We also believe these non-GAAP financial measures provide useful information about our operating results, enhance the overall understanding of our past performance and future prospects and allow for greater transparency with respect to key metrics we use for financial and operational decision-making. We present these non-GAAP financial measures to assist potential investors in seeing our operating results through the eyes of management and because we believe these measures provide an additional tool for investors to use in comparing our operating results over multiple periods with other companies in our industry. There are a number of limitations related to the use of Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA margin, non-GAAP costs and expenses, non-GAAP income (loss) from operations, non-GAAP net income and non-GAAP net income per share rather than net income (loss), net margin, total costs and expenses, income (loss) from operations, net income (loss) and net income (loss) per share, respectively, the nearest GAAP equivalents. For example, Adjusted EBITDA excludes certain recurring, non-cash charges such as depreciation of fixed assets and amortization of acquired intangible assets, although these assets may have to be replaced in the future, and share-based compensation expense, which has been, and will continue to be for the foreseeable future, a significant recurring expense and an important part of our compensation strategy. For a reconciliation of these non-GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures, please see the tables under “―Reconciliation of GAAP to non-GAAP financial results” included at the end of this release. Limitation of key metrics and other data The numbers for our key metrics, which include our MAUs and ARPU, are calculated using internal company data based on the activity of user accounts. We define a monthly active user as an authenticated Pinterest user who visits our website, opens our mobile application or interacts with Pinterest through one of our browser or site extensions, such as the Save button, at least once during the 30-day period ending on the date of measurement. We present MAUs based on the number of MAUs measured on the last day of the current period. We define ARPU as our total revenue in a given geography during a period divided by the average of the number of MAUs in that geography during the period. We calculate average MAUs based on the average between the number of MAUs measured on the last day of the current period and the last day prior to the beginning of the current period. We calculate ARPU by geography based on our estimate of the geography in which revenue-generating activities occur.

Comments Just days after they had both committed separately to play safety for Syracuse on Jan. 23, 2009, Phillip Thomas and Rishard Anderson met at 3261 SW 160th Ave. in Miramar, Fla. At a Benihana. It was there at the sushi bar the two future SU defensive backs got to know each other.They exchanged phone numbers. They discovered they had some of the same friends, thanks to the 18 miles that separated their hometowns. And for the first time, Thomas and Anderson –– who both stand at 6 feet and are only separated by 6 pounds –– were able to size up in person their prime competition for playing time in the Orange secondary.‘It was like I already knew him, basically,’ Anderson said after practice Monday. ‘Same lifestyle, same friends.’Flash forward 14 months, and the two mirror-image defensive backs are competing against one another for a starting position at cornerback. The two rising sophomores have been splitting reps through the first half of spring practice at the No. 2 cornerback position in perhaps the most tightly contested position battle of the spring for the Orange.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textThe first week of practice, Thomas saw the majority of the snaps with the first-team defense opposite No. 1 corner Da’Mon Merkerson. Throughout the second week, Anderson had his turn with the first team. And Monday, the first day of the third week of practice, it was more of the same. Thomas lined up at corner 31 times during the last half of practice. Anderson lined up at the same No. 2 corner spot 41 times. Thomas also shared time on the field with Anderson at a safety position when SU switched to its ‘Okie’ dime defense.As of Monday, both were still jockeying for that starting spot.‘Really, I’m not disappointed with any of the players who are playing in the defensive backfield,’ SU head coach Doug Marrone said. ‘All we are trying to do is create that versatility because we go in with two types of packages.’Thomas and Anderson head into their sophomore years a little more than a year after that sushi dinner with game experience as freshmen last fall. Thomas saw much more time on the field, as the Miami native started three out of 11 games played in 2009, registering 29 tackles in the process. Anderson played in seven games and recorded six tackles.Through the first two weeks of spring practice, the battle between Anderson and Thomas at the cornerback position has epitomized best what Marrone has preached every day at practice. It’s the same thing he harped on last week after Thomas got into a fight with tight end Nick Provo: ‘Be competitive, but not combative.’Between each other, Thomas and Anderson have come up with their own mantra. Each recited it multiple times after practice Monday. It’s advice they trade throughout their fight for the No. 2 cornerback position: ‘May the best man win.’At practice on Monday, both Thomas and Anderson played like the same man, like two 6-foot, 180-pound mirror-images from southeast Florida. Over the course of the last hour and a half of practice, the receivers both Thomas and Anderson matched up against were thrown to just a handful of times.Only once was either Anderson or Thomas burned deep from that cornerback position. Anderson gave up a 40-yard reception to transfer wide receiver Aaron Weaver. But Anderson made up for it several plays later, as he recovered to bat a pass out of rising junior wide receiver Marcus Sales’ hands.‘At first, it was like we had to be brothers because we both came in together,’ Thomas said. ‘We didn’t know what was going to happen.’If you ask Syracuse’s No. 1 receiver, Alec Lemon, he’ll tell you the same thing Thomas and Anderson recite. To Lemon, Thomas and Anderson resemble each other. Sometimes, even too much for the rising sophomore Lemon to realize the difference at the line of scrimmage.For the receiver, it has become the equivalent of a guessing game.‘With them switching in and out it’s kind of hard,’ Lemon said. ‘Going to the left side, I see Da’Mon Merkerson, and then going to the right side, I see (Thomas). And the next series I’m coming in and seeing (Anderson). So with them coming in, I give them each a different technique.’But once Lemon breaks his teammates down, the differences between Anderson and Thomas finally begin to surface. The mirror reflecting the two defensive backs from Florida becomes a little foggier.Lemon notes that Thomas, his roommate, forces receivers to the outside more, always shading them to the sideline, whereas Anderson plays Lemon straight up. Lemon also cites Thomas’ strength –– especially his hand strength –– as an attribute. Anderson’s greatest attribute, Lemon feels, is his quick feet. It is that pair of quick feet for Anderson that allows the cornerback to face Lemon at a straight 180-degree angle. It’s a distinct difference in angles between the two that keeps Lemon on his toes as he shifts his technique when lined up against Thomas versus Anderson.It is that element of surprise between Thomas and Anderson that the two cornerbacks hope will enable them both to see a large majority of time on the field this fall.‘At the end of the day, we are both going to go out and play,’ Anderson said. ‘Just because one of us is starting doesn’t mean the other one isn’t going to play. So let the best man win.’But there it is again, that mantra between Thomas and Anderson of the ‘best man winning.’And by the start of the 2010 season, there has to be a ‘best man’ who will have won the spot. With the return of injured rising senior safety Max Suter, injured rising junior cornerback Kevyn Scott and rising sophomore defensive back Dorian Graham, the fate of both Thomas and Anderson is cut and dry.Only one can start at cornerback.But until that decision is made, both Thomas and Anderson will recite the same thing to each other.Said Anderson: ‘Like Phillip said, may the best man win.’[email protected] Published on April 5, 2010 at 12:00 pm Facebook Twitter Google+
The University of Wisconsin had one of the most impressive athletic semesters in school history in fall 2019. Behind strong performances in sports ranging from football to volleyball, the Badgers impressed on the field, court, ice, mat and track. Let’s take a look at the semester that was in UW sports, starting with the teams whose seasons are over.Men’s Cross Country:The men’s cross country season was up to expectations entering the season. With the team coming off a top 10 finish in the NCAA Championships last season, they were expected to repeat with a similar performance this season.The team did lose several seniors from last season, but the team fought through adversity and finished near the top of each tournament they participated in. They then moved on to take first place at the Big Ten Championships before finishing 18th nationally at the NCAA Championships.Behind seniors Oliver Hoare and Olin Hacker, the team met expectations from the moment the season started back in September.Women’s Cross Country:Like the men’s team, the women’s cross country squad performed well on the big stage in November.Led by seniors Alicia Monson, Amy Davis and Alissa Niggemann, the Badgers finished in seventh place at the NCAA Championships.

The Read…Men’s Basketball:While the men’s basketball season has only endured a month’s worth of games thus far, it’s clear that this Wisconsin team is one of the weakest in several years.Standing at just 5-4 on the season, the team has struggled offensively despite carrying a roster loaded with players who are capable of shooting, including juniors D’Mitrik Trice and Brad Davison.Wisconsin will need to figure out their shooting struggles and turnover troubles as they get deeper in their schedule, when they’ll be faced with top Big Ten teams like The Ohio State University, Michigan State, Maryland and Michigan.Men’s Basketball: Wisconsin bounces back, rolls over Indiana in dominant winWhile all of Madison was focused on the Big Ten’s football championship in Indianapolis on Saturday, the University of Wisconsin Read…Women’s Basketball:The women’s basketball team has performed to expectations through just over a month of their schedule, standing at 5-3 as of Dec. 7.Led by sophomore Imani Lewis, the team has yet to lose a home game and even came within four points of winning against ranked Arkansas.
