The platforms include Adjust, Appsflyer, Branch, Kochava, Singular, SOOMLA and Tenjin.The impression-level revenue data will be delivered in real-time once an ad impression is triggered and will include a variety of data fields, such as the demand source, ad placement, currency and country information.Why we should careThis granular data will give mobile app publishers deeper insight into user acquisition campaign performance. MoPub said publishers will have the flexibility to process the data themselves, or send it through one of the seven third-party platform partners that has access to the data via an integration with MoPub (versus having to create a new API).“We are extremely excited about the level of granularity and precision the impression-level revenue data from MoPub provides,” said Scott Koenigsberg, SVP of product for the social game development company Zynga, “With a more accurate and precise view of the ad revenue across each user and campaigns, we are able to spend more effectively and efficiently across different marketing channels and double down on what works.”MoPub’s impression-level revenue data benefits any app developer aiming to monetize their app with ads and in-app purchases. The added value of the third-party integrations will make it easier for publishers who are already using those platforms to analyze the data — giving them granular details on the campaigns that generate the highest return on in app ads and purchases.“Publishers could use the data to identify users who are valued higher by advertisers, and could potentially generate higher earnings by more strategically offering ad opportunities,” writes MoPub, “The publisher might also decide not to funnel these users into an IAP model unless the potential for revenue is higher.”More on the newsIn February, MoPub launched a beta of its analytics solution, MoPub Analytics, and said it plans on leveraging its analytics engine and machine learning algorithms to surface new insights.MoPub also recently partnered with Pixalate and DoubleVerify to help fight in-app ad fraud.The post MoPub gives publishers impression-level revenue data, links with attribution platforms appeared first on Marketing Land.From our sponsors: MoPub gives publishers impression-level revenue data, links with attribution platforms HomeDigital MarketingMoPub gives publishers impression-level revenue data, links with attribution platformslast_img read more

ACA Repeal, Replacement Bills Receives Trump’s Approval, Lawmakers’ Criticism

first_imgCCH Tax Day ReportHouse Republicans’ Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (ACA) (P.L. 111-148) repeal and replacement legislation unveiled on March 6 (TAXDAY, 2017/03/07, C.1) is already generating significant feedback from the Trump administration, as well as from Republican and Democratic lawmakers on Capitol Hill. The American Health Care Bill may face an uphill battle, as several key Republican lawmakers, as well as Democrats, are not in favor of at least some of the provisions within the healthcare overhaul.Despite criticism of the measure in Congress, the administration formally announced its support of the legislation in a March 7 letter sent to House Ways and Means Committee Chairman Kevin Brady, R-Tex., and Energy and Commerce Committee Chairman Greg Walden, R-Ore. The two committees worked together in the drafting and unveiling of the repeal and replacement legislation. Both committees are scheduled to begin the markup process on the legislation on March 8.Health and Human Services Secretary Thomas E. Price wrote to Brady on March 7, saying, “On behalf of the Trump Administration, I am writing in support of the reconciliation recommendations recently released for consideration by your Committees. Your legislative proposals are consistent with the President’s commitment to repeal the Affordable Care Act; provide advanceable, refundable tax credits for Americans who do not already receive such tax benefits through health insurance offered by their employers…empower patients and put healthcare dollars and decisions back into their hands by expanding the use of health savings accounts….”Price also noted in his letter that achieving all of the president’s health care reform goals could not be done procedurally through a budget reconciliation bill alone. “Your proposals represent a necessary and important first step…” Price said. President Trump said on March 7 that this legislation is “phase 1” and that “Our wonderful new healthcare bill is out for review and negotiation.”Vice President Pence also weighed in on the Trump-backed healthcare bill, saying that he and the president believes the American Health Care Bill is the framework for moving forward. “We are open to improvements in the legislative process…but this is the bill, and the president supports the American Healthcare Act.” ”The Trump administration has implied it expects the bill will change throughout the legislative process. A number of lawmakers on both sides of the aisle have expressed concern with the tax credits provided within the measure.Ways and Means ranking member Richard Neal, D-Mass., criticized the GOP proposal as a “step backward.” House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., released a statement criticizing the GOP bill as being beneficial only for the wealthy. The bill “hands billionaires a massive new tax break while shifting huge costs and burdens onto working families across America,” Pelosi said.Similarly, Senate Minority Leader Charles E. Schumer, D-N.Y., in a March 7 news conference, summarized the GOP legislation as a “tax cut for the wealthy.” According to Senate Finance Committee ranking member Ron Wyden, D-Ore., the bill would tax Americans more based on their age.Pelosi also criticized House GOP lawmakers for what many Democrats have been calling a “lack of transparency” in the drafting process of the measure (TAXDAY, 2017/03/08, C.1). According to Pelosi, the original ACA bill was released 30 days prior to its first vote in committee. The House GOP bill was released two days prior to the scheduled markup of March 8. Pelosi on March 7 sent a letter to House Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wis., asking that members not be asked to vote on the legislation until the Congressional Budget Office (CBO) and Joint Committee on Taxation (JCT) answer a series of questions she outlined pertaining to coverage, quality and cost.“This is not the… repeal bill we’ve been waiting for,” Sen. Mike Lee, R-Utah said in a statement. “It is a missed opportunity and a step in the wrong direction,” he added.Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., was also critical of the GOP legislation as seeming too similar to the ACA. “We should be stopping mandates, taxes and entitlements, not keeping them,” he said on social media on March 7. According to Paul, the legislation “will not pass.” He added, “Conservatives are not going to take it.”. Republicans hold a slim majority in the Senate with 52 seats; 51 Republican votes are needed for the bill’s passage.By Jessica Jeane, Wolters Kluwer News StaffLetter from HHS Secretary Price Regarding Reconciliation BillsLetter from House Minority Leader Pelosi to Ways and Means Chairman Ryan Regarding Health Care Legislationlast_img read more

Ind vs SL: Angelo Mathews claims Lanka unprepared for India tour

first_imgSri Lanka will take on India in the five-match ODI series starting from Nov 2Sri Lanka captain Angelo Mathews has said that his team did not have an ideal preparation for the upcoming tour of India as they were concentrating on fitness and not skills during break from international cricket.After their series against Pakistan in August, the Lankan players were having a long break and had just started fitness training sessions ahead of their home series against England, scheduled to be played late next month. But they were told by their Board to get ready for the five-ODI series tour of India, beginning November 2.Mathews said that there has been sufficient preparation for the November 2-16 ODI series against India which was hurriedly arranged after the West Indies team decided to abandon their tour midway over players’ pay dispute with their Board (WICB).”The preparation for the series is not that great, we only had a few practice sessions especially with the weather interrupting. It is not the ideal preparation for an Indian tour but we will do our best to prepare ourselves and take it as it comes,” he said.”We were preparing for the England series because we knew that there were not any tours coming before that. We were focussed a lot on fitness and we just started batting three days ago. We only had a few skill-training sessions. We needed to reach our peak levels during England series but now that we’ve been thrown into a challenge, we will try our best to be prepared as much as we can,” Mathew was quoted as saying by ‘The Nation’ newspaper.advertisementMathews said that Kumar Sangakkara was struggling with a back injury and there was a possibility of Niroshan Dickwella keeping wickets.”Sanga will keep wickets and if Dickwella plays he will play as a batsman. Sanga is struggling a little bit with his back as well that’s why we need to carry a reserve wicket keeper,” said the 27-year-old all-rounder who has scored 3013 runs at an average of 38.13 and taken 80 wickets in 133 ODIs.”Sanga is having a small disc problem in his back he was complaining of it but it’s nothing serious, he was getting better every day so hopefully he will be okay. We might have to monitor him in the next few days if he can keep, otherwise we will have to play Dickwella,” he said.Mathews warned that his team cannot lower their guard against the Indians despite captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni being rested for the first three ODIs.”Dhoni is a great strength to the Indian team and if he is rested we have a very good chance but we still cannot be complacent because we all know that India is a difficult place to play cricket,” said Mathews.”We had bad experiences in the past. We will try and play positive and good cricket to win against them.”Sri Lanka has not beaten India in India in a bilateral ODI series. Their best performance has been a draw in a three-match series, 1-1 in 1997.In Dhoni’s absence, the Indian captaincy has been handed to Virat Kohli, who has been a thorn in the Lankan flesh in the recent past. Kohli has relished the Lankan bowling so much that he enjoys a batting average of 52.65 and a strike rate of 85.16 in ODI contests against them.Mathews stated that the team was well aware of the impact Kohli can make on his team and that they were making a few plans ahead of the series.”The spinners are having a chat with Piyal Wijetunge (spin bowling coach) and the fast bowlers are having chats with Chaminda Vaas (fast bowling coach) to try and make up plans. We have a few more days to plan it out and make plans for each and every batter,” said Mathews.The Sri Lankan team leave for India on Tuesday and commence the tour with a one-day practice game against India A in Mumbai on October 30 before beginning the five-match ODI series in November 2 at Cuttack.”We had a good break to improve on our physical fitness; a good month and a half fitness session and now, we have to maintain that fitness. I am sure during the Indian matches we won’t be able to do strenuous training as we did in the past one and a half months but we will try and maintain it and look at it positively,” said Mathews.He, however, said that India series could be beneficial for next year’s World Cup in Australia and New Zealand.advertisement”We will try to use (India) series to keep our momentum going as well as try and get our World Cup combinations right that will be our main focal point. Our World Cup preparations started from Pakistan series. I need to make sure I get the team right before the series in New Zealand. I will give opportunities to the players whom I need to look and try and look at other options also,” he said.”The confidence level of the team is also pretty crucial as we move into the last few months of the World Cup but then again we need to look at our options and get the combinations right as well.”last_img read more
