BCCI doubles team’s bonus for Australia series win

first_imgThe BCCI, at its Special General Meeting on Tuesday decided to double the incentive of the Indian cricket team from Rs 50 lakh to Rs 1 crore for their 2-1 series win against Australia at home.The decision was taken reversing the COA’s decision of paying Indian team members Rs 50 lakh for the Test series triumph on a pro-rata basis (as per no of matches played).”The BCCI SGM has passed unanimous resolution that players who were a part of Australia series win should get double the incentive. Hence they will now be paid Rs 1 crore instead of Rs 50 lakh,” a state unit functionary said after attending the meeting.The decision to double the incentive was also a message to the COA that any decision on financial incentive would be taken by the general body.”The statutory rule is to pass any decision pertaining to finance through General body meeting. The amount of incentive decided by the COA was not passed by the General body. Also an impression was given that BCCI members are against incentive. The decision proves we are pro-players,” the official said.While COA has powers to resolve any financial dispute, the board members are of the opinion that Vinod Rain and Co won’t have any problems if players get double the money.last_img read more

ICC Champions Trophy: Yuvraj Singh fifth Indian to play 300 ODIs

first_imgYuvraj Singh became the fifth Indian to play 300 One-Day Internationals as India play Bangladesh in the ICC Champions Trophy semi-final at Edgbaston .He joined Sachin Tendulkar, Sourav Ganguly, Rahul Dravid and Mohammad Azharuddin in the elite club.He was presented with a memento ahead of the match by Ganguly, under whom he made his debut back in 2000. After a sparkling run, Yuvraj starred with both bat and ball in India’s World Cup triumph in 2011. However, he was laid low by cancer and had to stay away from cricket till 2012.??? A special presentation for @YUVSTRONG12 ahead of his 300th ODI for ????#BANvIND #CT17 pic.twitter.com/n6Noy5elp9- ICC (@ICC) June 15, 2017There was a dip in form, fitness concerns and at one point, his fans feared they had seen the last of Yuvraj on the field, especially with the emergence of India’s new-age batsmen.But the stylish southpaw defied all odds and ensured he was back in contention for a place in India’s limited-overs teams when he scored tons of runs in the domestic circuit. After Virat Kogli took over as India’s limited-overs captain earlier this year, he wanted Yuvraj back in the side.Immediately after his return, Yuvi hammered a hundred against England and then turned up with a man-of-the-match winning performance against Pakistan in India’s Champions Trophy opener.Congratulations on 300 ODI’s @YUVSTRONG12 paaji. You have been an inspiration to one and all- Shikhar Dhawan (@SDhawan25) June 14, 2017Ahead of the all important semi-final, the 35-year-old said that playing 300 ODIs for India was a big achievement after what he has gone through but he wants to concentrate on the game against Bangladesh.advertisement”It is a big achievement for me. I am not going to do anything special. I think the team is much more important than my 300th game. We are focusing on our semi-final. I think Bangladesh have been doing really well in the tournament. We want to contribute towards our plans. We have to win this match at any cost. I am not focusing on my 300th game.”I don’t know about [being] the role model, but it’s a big achievement for me to finish 300 games in my career. It is huge honour. When I started playing for India I was happy just playing one game for India. That would have been a big achievement for me, but it’s come a long way. There have been ups and downs, and I am proud of myself. I have come through and still managed to get to 300. At one stage I was thinking if I was going to play another game,” Yuvraj added.Reflecting on his numerous comebacks, Yuvraj admitted that although it is not difficult to play for India, sustaining is tough. He further said that his “never giving it up” attitude is his biggest attribute.”To play for India is not that difficult, but to sustain in it is tough. I think the biggest quality in me would be never to give up. Keep pushing no matter what obstacles come in your life. That is what I can give to the younger guys: never back down, always keep on working the same way whether you are having a good time or a bad time, be consistent and be persistent. Focus on the process of the game,” Yuvraj pointed out.BACK TO WHERE IT ALL STARTEDSeventeen years ago, Yuvraj made his debut for India in this very tournament, but back then it was known as the ICC Knockout event featuring 11 teams. He did not get an opportunity to bat in his first match against Kenya and only bowled four overs for 16 runs with one maiden.He made his ODI debut at the ICC KnockOut in 2000 and is set to play his 300th ODI today at #CT17 – @YUVSTRONG12 talks about his journey! pic.twitter.com/0yPxygevj5- ICC (@ICC) June 15, 2017But the southpaw announced himself in the next game against the mighty Australians, smashing a match-winning 84 against the likes of Glenn McGrath, Brett Lee, Jason Gillespie and Ian Harvey in Nairobi. Yuvraj’s special talent was unveiled to the world for the first time and he didn’t look back since that day.Standing on the cusp of his 300th One-day International, it still remains a difficult task to describe Yuvraj in a nutshell.The 40 Test matches that he has played will not be able to tell the story of a cricketer, who, inarguably, will rank among India’s greatest ever match-winners in limited overs cricket. And that list isn’t too big.advertisementKapil Dev, Tendulkar and Mahendra Singh Dhoni are the names that immediately come to mind when one talks about match winners in the shorter versions. And that’s the paradox.But for all the talent and skill that he possess, it’s consistency which as deserted him all these years. In 299 ODIs Yuvraj has amassed 8622 runs at an average of 36.84 with 14 hundreds and 52 half-centuries.He has batted in the middle-order throughout his career and played the role of finisher for the Men in Blue in limited-overs cricket which is perhaps why his average is not up there in the high forties. On his day Yuvraj smashed the best of bowlers and ripped apart dangerous bowling attacks although that hasn’t happened regularly in his career.But fortunately for India, Yuvraj has always been a big match player and his record in ICC events and important tournaments has been phenomenal, to say the least.HIGH POINTS OF YUVI’S CAREERIt was white ball cricket where he found his mojo, and Yuvraj has always held his own with his immense contribution in the 2002 NatWest final and India’s two World Cup triumphs.The six sixes off Stuart Broad during the inaugural World T20 in 2007 remains one of the most memorable sights in world cricket. Yuvraj finished the tournament with 148 runs in five innings at 29.60 with two half-centuries and a highest score of 70. His performance against England and Australia took India into the final where they defeated arch-rivals Pakistan to clinch the maiden T20 World Cup.Winning the tournament in South Africa helped it gain impetus and those sixes sown the seeds of an alternate brand of cricket.From 2005 to 2007, Yuvraj was at his peak averaging over 40 in ODI cricket. Six of his 14 hundreds came during this period and resulted in India turning into a dominant force in the limited-overs formats.And then came the big one – 2011 World Cup. Mahendra Singh Dhoni’s six has a recall value — being shown million times — just like Kapil Dev’s catch off Vivian Richards in the 1983 final.But, perhaps, one of the biggest reasons for India’s victory was the 15 wickets he took and 362 runs he scored at an average of over 90.As he went about his task Yuvraj coughed blood, couldn’t eat, and was totally unaware that he was suffering from a rare germ cell cancer.BATTLE WITH CANCER AND COMEBACKThe battle against cancer was the biggest he has fought in his life. It was tougher than a Lee yorker or a James Anderson outswinger.The phases of life that he has gone through, anyone else would have been happy to survive, but Yuvraj, the fighter, wanted to play on.Yuvraj went to America immediately after being named the Man of the tournament in the World Cup in 2011 and started the four-month long chemotherapy treatment.He made a comeback and it was an emotionally overwhelming feeling. But after every high, there is a low, and Yuvraj’s was the 2014 World T20 final against Sri Lanka in Dhaka. He scored 11 off 21 balls and India lost the match as he couldn’t accelerate.advertisementAs it often happens in Indian cricket, his epitaph was written and no one would have even bet a penny that he would make a comeback at 33.But then he had made a comeback in T20 Internationals in Australia. People thought that the only version he could play. But he had conviction, did the hard yards in Ranji Trophy and earned an ODI recall.The 150 against England at Cuttack meant he would be on the plane to England.Reuters Photo”His contribution to Indian cricket has been outstanding. He’s been total match-winner for India, won us so many tournaments and series. This is just a testimony to the kind of talebt he possesses and it’s obviously you need to have all those things to play 300 ODIs for India. I congratulate him and wish him all the very best, hopefully he can play a lot more for us and get in those match-winning performance all over again. I hope tomorrow is a special one for him,” Kohli said.He won’t be prolific like he used to be in his younger days. You won’t find him standing at point like a crouching tiger. With Ravindra Jadeja around, Kohli will rarely turn up to him to roll in some of his effective ‘pie chuckers’.But he will be present somewhere around – like strikers in a game of football – who will not do anything for 85 minutes but will do the needful in the 88th or 89th.Yuvraj has that calibre and that is why he made a comeback to ODIs after nearly four years. It’s time to doff that hat as he steps in for his 300th outing.There were cricketers. And there was one Yuvraj Singh.(Follow LIVE: India vs Bangladesh, ICC Champions Trophy second semi-final)last_img read more

Sachin Tendulkar on MS Dhoni retirement speculation: It’s his personal decision, he should be given that space

first_imgBatting great Sachin Tendulkar has said MS Dhoni should be given the space to go out on his own terms while insisting that the India wicketkeeper-batsman has had a “special” career in limited-overs cricket.Speculations were rife that MS Dhoni would hang up his boots from international cricket after India’s World Cup 2019 campaign. India Today though confirmed that there is no official world on Dhoni retiring from the 50-over format of the game.MS Dhoni, India’s World Cup-winning former captain, was left devasted when he was run out in the 49th over of India’s chase vs New Zealand in the World Cup 2019 semi-final in Manchester on Wednesday. For the umpteenth time in his career, Dhoni kept the hopes of India alive by helping the team recover from 92 for 6 in their chase of 240.Dhoni hit a valiant fifty and stitched a 106-run stand for the 7th wicket with Ravindra Jadeja but it wasn’t enough as New Zealand won the semi-final by 18 runs and knocked India out of the World Cup.”Thank You MS Dhoni” became a social media trend minutes after Dhoni was agonisingly run out by a Martin Guptill throw in the 49th over. It is safe to say, MS Dhoni, 38, had played his last 50-over World Cup match on Wednesday.MS Dhoni has had a special career: Sachin TendulkarSpeaking to India Today, Sachin Tendulkar said: “That’s his personal decision [end of 50-over career]. Everyone should give him that space and respect that. Every should respect what his contribution to India cricket rather than starting speculations. After having contributed so much, he should be the one taking that decision.”advertisementTendulkar heaped rich praise on MS Dhoni, saying not many have been able to have a successfull career as the India wicketkeeper. The batting great opined India fans wouldn’t have given up hopes as long as Dhoni was out in the middle in the World Cup semi-final vs New Zealand.”How many guys can have a career like this? He has had a special career. The support and belief that people have in him is a reflection of his contribution. People still believed that he could go and finish the game. The game was not over till the time he was out there.”Meanwhile, India captain Virat Kohli confirmed that he has not been informed anything by MS Dhoni about the veteran’s future. India topped the points table with 7 wins from 9 matches but, as Kohli pointed out, 45 minutes of poor cricket knocked them out of the World Cup.Here’s what happened in the press conference in Manchester on WednesdayReporter: After this, India are going to the West Indies to play ODIs as well. There are speculations about what MS Dhoni will do next. Has he told anything about his plans to your or the team?Virat Kohli: No, he hasn’t told us anything about his future.Also Read | Virat Kohli reacts to reporter’s question on MS Dhoni retirement speculationAlso Read | Is MS Dhoni changing nationalities?

Publix Only officers should openly carry guns in its stores

LAKELAND, Fla. — If you’re carrying a gun, Florida’s largest supermarket chain doesn’t want to see it.Publix Supermarkets is joining a growing number of retailers in asking customers not to openly carry firearms in its stores, even if state laws allow it.The company announced the move by email in a one-sentence statement on Wednesday, saying “Publix respectfully requests that only law enforcement officials openly carry firearms in our stores.”The chain based in Lakeland, Florida, has 1,226 stores in Florida, Georgia, Alabama, South Carolina, North Carolina, Tennessee and Virginia.Survivors of last year’s massacre at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School have criticized the company for donating to a Florida gubernatorial candidate aligned with the National Rifle Association.Publix’s new gun policy comes a week after the competing Kroger grocery chain joined Walmart, Target, and other companies in asking customers not to openly carry weapons in their stores.The Associated Press read more

60 of children in Europe Central Asia report aggression at home UNICEF

In a statement issued today in Berlin, UNICEF said its “Young Voices” poll was based on face-to-face interviews with 15,200 children between the ages of 9 and 17, conducted between December 2000 and February 2001. The initial findings reflect the voices of over 93 million children from 35 countries, making it “the largest and most ambitious survey” ever taken among children in that region, the agency said. According to UNICEF, the poll paints a portrait of the views, concerns, hopes and dreams of children and adolescents from 26 States in transition in Central and Eastern Europe (CEE), the Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS), the Baltic States and nine countries in Western Europe. It also reveals that young people see the world as marked by violence, injustice and discrimination.The survey revealed that almost half of the children polled felt they did not have basic information on HIV/AIDS (65 per cent in the 9-13 age group, 27 per cent for 14-17 year olds), while 61 per cent thought their views were either not sufficiently taken into account or not considered at all by their local government.”Children are not only our future, they are our present and we need to start taking their voices very seriously,” said Carol Bellamy, Executive Director of UNICEF. “We must listen carefully to what young people have to say and give them every opportunity to speak. We must reach out to them and encourage them to participate in the decision-making processes that affect their lives.”The poll’s findings were released on the first day of a high-level regional meeting in Berlin – “The Conference on Children in Europe and Central Asia” – to set a new regional agenda for children in the next decade, UNICEF said. Final results will be presented on the occasion of the first ever UN General Assembly special session on children, to be held in New York this September, where world leaders will forge a new global agenda for the younger generation. read more

UN Emergency Relief Coordinator urges Sudan to drop charges against MSF official

“I am very concerned about the arrest of Paul Foreman, country director of MSF-Holland, in Khartoum earlier today,” Jan Egeland said in a statement.Mr. Foreman has been released on bail.Confirming the incident on its own website, MSF said the British national has been charged with crimes against the State. “MSF is being accused of publishing false reports, undermining society in Sudan and spying,” said the humanitarian relief agency known for operating under dangerous conditions. It voiced outrage at the charges and rejected an suggestion that the report was false.Urging Sudan’s authorities to drop all charges against Mr. Foreman immediately, Mr. Egeland said MSF-Holland “is a crucial partner in our relief effort in Darfur,” the country’s war-ravaged western region.According to MSF, the charges relate to “The Crushing Burden of Rape: Sexual Violence in Darfur,” which the agency published in March.“Faced with hundreds of women and girls seeking medical care following rape and sexual violence in Darfur, MSF wrote and published the report in order to raise awareness about the ongoing violence against women,” the agency said, noting that the document “does not accuse the Government of Sudan.”Mr. Egeland, a UN Under-Secretary-General, stressed that MSF’s work in treating victims of rape and sexual violence and in speaking out about the terrible crimes being committed, has been exemplary.“It is an incontestable fact that rape and sexual violence are rampant in the ongoing crisis in Darfur,” he said. “The Sudanese Government, the UN and international NGOs only recently made substantial progress in addressing this issue; efforts that must continue to ensure that all victims of sexual violence receive assistance and protection.” read more

For soybean farmers, the benefits of the TPP come in the form of increased soybean meal sales domestically to meet demand created by increased meat exports to TPP nations.last_img read more

Why Afar Is Dipping Its Toes Into the Travel Business

first_imgFrom custom studios to ad retargeting to recommendation engines, customization and personalization are becoming dominant trends in media. The program also builds off of another initiative, Afar Experiences, that the company has run in recent years. Experiences offers four days of event programming in a given city, aiming to connect travelers with unique human interest elements of a destination rather than just the locale itself—something Journeys is emphasizing. Travel publisher Afar is taking the concept a step further with its latest program, Afar Journeys, offering customizable itineraries and booking options for travelers to select international destinations. It’s working with Switzerland Tourism for its first project, connecting potential travelers with parnters on the ground. “There are a lot [of logistical challenges], and they’re different in every place,” Diaz says. “We’re building these all from the ground up, so there’s not a lot of existing infrastructure. You name the logistical challenge, and we’ve seen it. It’s all of the things you deal with in an events business, but they’re more complicated because you’re not from there.” While Experiences draw “mid-six-figure” sponsorships from clients like tourism boards, airlines and hotels, in addition to hefty registration fees from the 25 to 40 attendees—$4,000 for international events; $1,500 for domestic ones—the startup costs aren’t nominal. They vary widely based on the destination, but Diaz says overhead typically runs into six figures. Greenwood will travel to a city five or six times, spending up to eight weeks on site planning for an event. They’ve run six programs to this point—Cairo, Johannesburg, Sydney, Seattle, Wa., Mexico City and Charleston, N.C.—and have another three in the works. Putting together a diverse group of local experts including government ministers, artists, scientists, architects, comedians, activists and more, it’s not an accident that it sounds a little like the TED model—Sullivan and Diaz have each been to TED conferences a handful of times and poached Jill Greenwood from the group to be Afar’s director of the Experiences program. According to Greg Sullivan, CEO and co-founder of Afar, Journeys is actually an extension of the company’s existing offerings. The site has more than 80,000 suggestions—“utilitarian guides for the independent traveler,” he says—that readers can go to for ideas. Journeys helps them complete the circle, moving beyond inspiration and into action. “It’s designed to form a deeper connection to places and see it through a local set of eyes,” says Joe Diaz, Afar’s chief product officer and co-founder. “Everything out there was about the escape and sitting on the beach, drinking Mai Thais.” Whether its Experiences or Journeys though, Afar is mindful of the fact that it’s not a travel business per se. Partnerships with its Travel Advisory Council are core to execution, and as a media entity, it’s important to maintain a level of neutrality over the trips it’s promoting. Sullivan says Journeys functions more as a lead provider than a booking agency, nor is it an ecommerce venture. Still, they have to consider fulfillment and customer service issues that wouldn’t arise before. “It’s not like we’re competing with Abercrombie and Kent or Cox and Kings,” Sullivan says, “but there’s no doubt that media is moving toward that mix of inspiring and enabling. There’s a natural connection there, especially as the digital business becomes more transaction-leading.”last_img read more

Sacramento Police Who Killed Stephon Clark Wont Be Charged

first_imgBy DON THOMPSON Associated PressSACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) — California’s attorney general announced Tuesday that he won’t charge two Sacramento police officers who fatally shot an unarmed black man last year, joining a local prosecutor in finding that the officers reasonably believed Stephon Clark had a gun as he moved toward them.Attorney General Xavier Becerra announced the results of a nearly yearlong investigation after telling Clark’s mother privately. He acknowledged that it was not what Clark’s family wanted but said the evidence showed the officers had reason to believe their lives were in danger, though investigators found only a cellphone. SeQuette Clark did not comment Tuesday on Becerra’s findings.California Attorney General Xavier Becerra gestures towards the three binders containing his office’s investigation into last year’s fatal shooting of Stephon Clark by two Sacramento Police Officer, during a news conference,Tuesday, March 5, 2019, in Sacramento, Calif.

(AP Photo/Rich Pedroncelli)“There is a lot of hurt in this community today and certainly in the home of the Clark family,” Becerra said. “Our investigation can’t change what has happened, but we can make every effort to deliver a fair, thorough and impartial review, which we promised this community.”Clark, 22, was suspected of vandalism when he was shot seven times on March 18, 2018, and his killing prompted protests in California’s capital city and across the U.S.New demonstrations followed Sacramento County District Attorney Anne Marie Schubert’s decision this weekend not to charge the officers, with 84 people arrested Monday. A reporter from The Sacramento Bee newspaper was briefly detained while live-streaming the protest, and clergy members were among those arrested. The police said the gathering in a wealthy Sacramento neighborhood was an unlawful assembly and that cars had been keyed.Stephon Clark died in a hail of police gunfire in the backyard of his grandmother Sequita Thompson’s home in Sacramento, Calif. (Family courtesy photo via AP)People who had participated said at Tuesday’s City Council meeting that police were overly aggressive, pushing and sometimes striking protesters and ramming them with bikes. One woman said that her ankle was broken.The Rev. Kevin Kitrell Ross said officers trapped protesters as they tried to leave before arresting them.“We witnessed law enforcement trap us on a bridge as we raised our hands showing that we were in surrender,” he said.Sacramento Mayor Darrell Steinberg called for an independent investigation into police’s response to the protest, and police Chief Daniel Hahn said the department was reviewing body camera footage. Police spokesman Marcus Basquez said no protesters were taken to the hospital.The City Council meeting grew tense as people shared their reactions to the arrests. Steinberg shut the meeting down for about 15 minutes amid shouting. The meeting then resumed and finally ended after about four hours.Protester Alexander Clark who is not related to Stephon Clark disrupts the Sacramento City Council during a meeting Tuesday, March 5, 2019, in Sacramento, Calif. Community members expressed anger over the decision by the Sacramento County District Attorney to not file criminal charges against the two police officers involved in the fatal shooting of Stephon Clark, 22, an unarmed vandalism suspect, last year. (AP Photo/Rich Pedroncelli)With the conclusion of the state and local investigations, U.S. Attorney McGregor Scott and Sean Ragan, who heads the FBI’s Sacramento office, said they and the U.S. Justice Department’s Civil Rights Division will review the results to see whether the officers violated Clark’s civil rights. Such reviews are standard practice, Scott spokeswoman Lauren Horwood said.Sacramento police said they will decide after Scott’s investigation concludes whether the officers violated any policies or procedures, which could result in their firings.Officers Terrance Mercadal and Jared Robinet said they thought Clark was approaching them with a gun after he ran from them into his grandparents’ backyard.The officers had been pursuing Clark after receiving calls about someone breaking car windows and an elderly neighbor’s sliding glass door. The attorney general and district attorney said the evidence showed Clark was advancing toward the officers holding what they thought was a gun when they shot him.Clark could have kept fleeing through an opening at the other side of the backyard, Becerra said, but instead advanced from about 30 feet (9 meters) away from the officers to about 16 feet (5 meters) away before they opened fire.Attorneys for Clark’s family say an autopsy they commissioned found that police shot Clark seven times from behind.SeQuette Clark, left, leaves the Calvary Christian Center after meeting with California Attorney General Xavier Becerra Tuesday, March 5, 2019, in Sacramento, Calif. Becerra is expected later today to announce the results of his criminal investigation into the shooting death of Clark’s son, Stephon Clark, by Sacramento police officers last year. (AP Photo/Rich Pedroncelli)Becerra said his office hired the San Diego County Medical Examiner’s Office to conduct an independent review, which backed the official autopsy showing that Clark was most likely shot as he approached police.The attorney general said he considered evidence that Clark had drugs and alcohol in his system and had been fighting with his fiancee in the days prior to the shooting.But while the local district attorney highlighted those factors during her announcement Saturday, drawing protests that she was impugning Clark’s character, Becerra said they were not key to his decision.Becerra, who called for changes in law enforcement practices to prevent other shootings, said there was plenty of evidence to support his conclusion. Still, he said it was not an easy decision.“There’s a young man who’s no longer alive,” Becerra said. “Two sons who won’t have a father. Whose mother I just met is still grieving. Of course it was a tough call. These are all tough calls. It’s never easy.”The case has led top state officials to support changes to California’s legal standard for when police can use deadly force.Lawmakers have revived a measure introduced after Clark’s slaying that would make California the first state to allow police to use deadly force only when it’s necessary to prevent imminent and serious injury or death and if there’s no reasonable alternative, such as warnings or other methods.Strong opposition from law enforcement agencies stalled it last year.Becerra was vague about what reforms he would support but said change was needed. He did not endorse specific legislation.“This incident reads like the bitterly familiar passages of a long, complicated and uninviting book,” he said. “We must all be willing to write the next chapters in this story of what we call American justice.”___Associated Press writers Kathleen Ronayne in Sacramento and Christopher Weber and Brian Melley in Los Angeles contributed to this report.last_img read more

CocaCola Will Revive New Coke in Alliance With Netflix Stranger Things

first_imgA rush of TV watchers to streaming video has prompted Coca-Cola to test an interesting pour.Coca-Cola will bring New Coke back to market for a brief time, all part of a partnership with Netflix, which has featured Coke in its cult-favorite series “Stranger Things.” The third season of the series, set in 1985, will weave New Coke into select episodes, and so the streaming-video outlet approached the beverage giant about taking part in a promotion that will boost the return of the series as well as the company’s flagship drink.The formula for New Coke has languished in the Atlanta vaults of The Coca-Cola Company for years, left to collect dust after an ill-fated launch in 1985. More than thirty years later, the company thinks consumers will clamor for the beverage they once declined to love. Popular on Variety Other streaming outlets are contemplating advertiser alliances, too – even if they won’t run commercials. Amazon features banner ads from movie studios and TV networks on its Prime Video home page. There are no plans to include traditional commercials on Disney Plus, the soon-to-launch subscription-video service from Walt Disney Co.. Still, the company could offer a limited number of content sponsorship opportunities that would align Disney Plus content with promotions from advertisers, says a person familiar with the matter, much in the same way a movie studio creates alliances with car companies and restaurant chains to call attention to a new release.Netflix and Coca-Cola have been working on the promotion for 18 months, Smyth says, and with good reason. The marketing initiative, spurred after Netflix learned that “Stranger Things” showrunners Matt and Ross Duffer intended to make New Coke part of the story in the show’s third season, required a lot of research and work.Coca-Cola will make available about 500,000 cans of New Coke to the public, who can buy it online as part of a package at CokeStore.com/1985, or have a chance to get it at the company’s World of Coca-Cola the week of June 3 on select days. As part of the promotion, Coca-Cola will also unveil limited-edition packages of original Coke with “Stranger Things” designs on them. And the company will launch an ad in movie theaters – a remake of an actual 1985 ad for New Coke directed by the Duffers themselves.Researchers and designers at Coca-Cola spent six months sifting through past materials to recreate the New Coke package, which uses a slightly different shade of red than the original formula. Executives had to source the ingredients in the New Coke recipe and secretly produce New Coke concentrate in an Atlanta bottling plant.The company doesn’t expect to make any money off the New Coke revival, says Stuart Kronauge, president, sparkling business unit, Coca-Cola North America, but it will use the experiment to gauge other reaction. She is interested to see how quickly the New Coke supply sells out, tracking the Netflix promotion to actual customer orders.”I want to see how fast that goes…the receptivity, the energy.”You’d think reviving New Coke would be a task fraught with gravitas, but Kronauge suggests the process has been anything but. Coca-Cola ‘has a side that’s very playful,” she says. “We don’t take ourselves too seriously.” New Coke was supposed to be a saving grace for Coca-Cola, a sweeter version of its iconic soda tailored for modern tastes. Instead, its launch is seen as one of the greatest gaffes in the history of marketing. Consumers rebelled, hoarding cans of the original formula. The old reliable returned to shelves after just 79 days. Imagine the pushback if Twitter had been invented last century!Now the oft-disparaged beverage has a chance to redeem itself in an era when consumers are exponentially harder to reach.  Coca-Cola’s big swing shows how much blue-chip advertisers crave a connection with streaming-video outlets, which often run few ads – and in many cases, none.And yet, advertisers of all stripes are eager to find ways to align themselves with the streaming shows that have captured more attention from the public. Viewers have “added a new platform in how they are consuming content and stories,” notes Cottrill. “It’s an opportunity for us to find an interesting way to be there.” Coca-Cola is taking part in a test with Hulu, which has begun to run on-screen “pause ads” that show up when its subscribers decide to stop their video selection for a period of time.The pressure to catch consumers fascinated with ad-free premium video has become palpable. In February, Anheuser-Busch InBev ran a Super Bowl ad that did the unthinkable – it left viewers thinking more about HBO’s “Game of Thrones” than about beer. The commercial showed a character from the HBO series defeating the Bud Knight in a joust and then killing him in no uncertain terms. Even so, the commercial gave Anheuser’s Bud Light a connection to viewers who at the time were eager to see the series’ final season.No one predicts streaming-video will take up the models used by TV networks. “We don’t have any ad space to sell,” says Barry Smyth, head of global partnership marketing at Netflix. Indeed, neither Netflix or Amazon break up their programs with commercials, while Hulu offers an ad-supported option that includes fewer commercials than linear TV. Netflix has tapped a marketing agency, 1TwentyFour, to work with advertisers and their representatives, but Smyth notes the company is not driven to rack up new alliances with sponsors, and says the service will remain ad-free. Other marketing alliances may be possible: “We are definitely open to working with brands, just so long as it’s very authentic,” he says. ‘Orange Is the New Black’ Creator Jenji Kohan and Star Uzo Aduba Bid Farewellcenter_img What’s Coming to Netflix in September 2019 “This is uncharted territory for us,” says Geoff Cottrill, senior vice president of strategic marketing for Coca-Cola North America, in an interview. “We want to look for ways to work with Netflix, but only in ways that don’t interrupt consumers, and don’t get in the way of the entertainment. If we can find ways to integrate authentically and add value to the experience, then we want to be a part of it.” Related ×Actors Reveal Their Favorite Disney PrincessesSeveral actors, like Daisy Ridley, Awkwafina, Jeff Goldblum and Gina Rodriguez, reveal their favorite Disney princesses.
