Print still plays a role, but Hanley Wood has committed to a future based on digital media, data services and events. As such, the company is “shifting resources” toward those ends and away from print.The b-to-b publisher focused on the professional construction and design markets has laid off 19 employees from across various disciplines that will impact two of its top titles, Builder and Remodeling.CEO Peter Goldstone confirmed the moves in comments to FOLIO:.”[Hanley Wood] is making significant investments in digital and data solution platforms, increasing headcount across the board,” he says, noting that the company has made 70 hires in the last 12 months. “The shift in resource deployment is from print to digital and data. Our digital and data businesses are up 20 to 30 percent [year-over-year]. We are fueling the growth businesses with additional resources.” Goldstone says frequency and size of the print products will remain unchanged despite the cuts. Print and digital editorial operations began merging in 2011.”We are very committed to print as we still have over 20 print brands that are performing well against our core audience sectors,” he says. “Our core asset is our construction audience database. Print is still 50 percent of our overall media expense and critical to feeding the database.””Instead of wide and thin, which is the old magazine model,” Goldstone continues, “we are expanding vertically and deep within our core audiences. This specialization requires new talent and new skills and new training.”Hanley Wood has emphasized digital- and data-first approaches with several of its smaller brands and in many of its senior-level hires—the company brought on dedicated presidents of content, digital and market intelligence—but hadn’t made major changes to its primary print products until now.Two of the company’s three biggest magazines, Builder has a total qualified circulation of 111,716, while Remodeling has 102,035 qualified subscribers, according to the most recent BPA audits from the first half of 2013. The brands’ web properties attract 161,235 and 87,621 unique visitors each month, respectively, per their media kits.Broadly, the titles’ sector has declined, but is slightly outperforming industry averages in ad pages and ad revenue, according to the latest BIN report from ABM. Building, engineering and construction magazines declined 5.9 percent in pages and 3.7 percent in revenue through the first quarter of 2013.The layoffs are the latest in a series of changes Hanley Wood has undergone as it transforms its business model. The company has been sold twice since 2005 and drastically reduced its debt through restructuring early 2012. Goldstone, who had been president of Hanley Wood from 2009 to 2010, was named CEO last year.**Editor’s note: A prior version of this article incorrectly stated that Goldstone had served as Hanley Wood’s CEO from 2009 to 2010.

Election CommissionMain opposition BNP on Saturday submitted a list of 21 leaders to the election commission, including a nomination seeker, who have been arrested by law enforcement agencies since 22 November ‘defying the EC’s directives’, reports UNB.Bangladesh Nationalist Party leader Salauddin Khan submitted the list attached with a letter signed by party secretary general Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir to the office of chief election commissioner KM Nurul Huda at Nirbachan Bhaban.”So far, 21 BNP leaders, including a nomination seeker, have been arrested since 22 November,” Fakhrul claimed in the letter.The BNP leader requested the election commission to issue emergency directives to the law enforcement agencies to refrain from arresting BNP leaders and activists in ‘false’ cases alongside taking measures for the release of those arrested.Fakhrul alleged that the EC played a silent role.Besides, BNP submitted a list of two cases filed with Bhairab police station against its leaders and activists on 19 and 23 November. The total numbers of named and unnamed accused in the two cases are 150 and 450 ones respectively. In the letter, Fakhrul said they earlier submitted the lists of cases with arrestees on 15, 17 and 20 November.Over recovering the body of its nomination seeker Abu Bakar from Buriganga, he said the EC earlier announced that they were giving directives to the law enforcement agencies to take legal steps in this regard.”The role of the EC is also questionable in this regard. The EC can’t avoid the responsibility in this matter,” the BNP secretary general said.According to the BNP’s list, BNP nomination seeker from Cumilla-4 constituency MA Awal Khan was arrested and kept in the jail so that he cannot submit the nomination paper.The other 20 arrestees are Ramna thana Chhatra Dal leader Jewel Rana (missing traceless after being arrested), Rupnagar Thana BNP leader Abul Kashem, Rupnagar thana Juba Dal leaders Fakhrul Islam Shipu, Jahangir Biswas, Shahjahan Shikder and Mintu Mia, Rupnagar Swecchasebok Dal leader Alauddin, Mohammadpur thana BNP leaders Abdur Rahman and Masum, Sutrapur thana BNP leader Abdus Sattar, Kawser Ahmmed, Mujibur Rahman, Sutrapur Sramik Dal leader Delwar Hossain, ward-level leader in Khilkhet thana Abdul Haque Bhuiyan, Bhairab (Kishoreganj) BNP leaders Alamgir member and Abdul Khaleque, and Bhairab Juba Dal leader Rubel Mia.The other arrestees are Jamal, Zakaria Faruk and Kawser Mia — all grassroots leaders of Bhairab.Later, EC secretary Helal Uddin told reporters that the list submitted by BNP will be placed in the commission’s meeting to be held on Sunday and the EC will take the decision.
Diagnosing lupus is especially tricky; however, physicians are working toward streamlining the criteria for diagnosis that include looking for signs of inflammation. A physician may also evaluate current symptoms, laboratory test results, and medical history. And while no single laboratory test can determine a lupus diagnosis, multiple criteria presented simultaneously can often lead to an official diagnosis.After diagnosis, treatments may include:• Anti-inflammatory medications – help relieve many of the symptoms of lupus by reducing inflammation and pain. For many people with lupus, an anti-inflammatory drug may be the only medication they need to control their lupus.• Corticosteroids (also known as glucocorticoids, cortisone or steroids) – synthetic (man-made) prescription drugs designed to work like the body’s naturally occurring hormones produced by the adrenal glands, in particular cortisol. Cortisol helps regulate blood pressure and the immune system and it is the body’s most potent anti-inflammatory hormone.• Antimalarials – prescription drugs used in combination with steroids and other medications, in part to reduce the dose required of the other drugs. Antimalarials are most often prescribed for skin rashes, mouth ulcers and joint pain, but also can be effective in mild forms of lupus where inflammation and blood clotting are a concern.• Immunosuppressives (Immune Modulators) – prescription drugs used to control inflammation and the overactive immune system, especially when steroids have been unable to bring lupus symptoms under control, or when a person cannot tolerate high doses of steroids.In addition to medications and other medical care from doctors, a large and growing number of people turn to other healing practices to try to improve their health, including chiropractic, acupuncture and Tai Chi, and massage therapies.
