SAN ANTONIO–(BUSINESS WIRE)–iHeartMedia, Inc. (OTCBB:IHRT) today reported financial results for the

third quarter ended September 30, 2014.

“This quarter we became ‘iHeartMedia’ to better reflect who we are today

– the leading media and entertainment company in the digital age,”

Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Bob Pittman said. “We are a

one-of-a-kind multi-platform media company that delivers unparalleled

reach, scale and impact while continuing to provide the most live

entertainment – with more content and more events in more places on more

devices – to the industry’s most engaged audiences, wherever they are.

And last month, our fourth annual iHeartRadio Music Festival generated

more buzz than ever with five billion social media impressions, more

than double last year’s total, and on par with the Academy Awards. Our

constantly expanding platform of assets enables advertisers and partners

to engage seamlessly across all of our diverse media platforms –

broadcast, digital, outdoor, mobile, social and events.”

“We were pleased to continue to grow overall revenues while tightly

managing our expenses through operating efficiencies to generate a 9%

growth in OIBDAN this quarter,” said Rich Bressler, President and Chief

Financial Officer. “We delivered year-over-year increases in revenues

and OIBDAN at iHeartMedia and our International Outdoor business. Our

Americas Outdoor segment continues to improve after coming off of a

challenging first half of the year. We also continued to build our

financial flexibility with three successful debt refinancing activities

during the third quarter, as well as $57.1 million in discounted

repurchases of our 2016 and 2018 debt that we have completed in October,

further extending our runway and enabling us to keep focusing on our

operations and growth.”

Third Quarter 2014 Results

Consolidated revenues increased $42.5 million, or 3%, in the third

quarter of 2014 compared to the same period of 2013. Excluding the

effects of movements in foreign exchange rates, revenues also increased

3%, or $41.9 million.

  • iHeartMedia revenues increased $7 million, or 1%, primarily driven by

    core national broadcast radio, political advertising, and traffic and

    weather services. Higher revenues were partially offset by lower core

    local broadcast radio revenues.

  • Americas outdoor revenues decreased $2 million, or 1% ($1 million, or

    0%, excluding foreign exchange impacts), primarily driven by lower

    national account revenues. Higher digital revenues were partially

    offset by decreases in revenues from traditional product lines.

  • International outdoor revenues increased $22 million, or 6% ($21

    million, or 5%, excluding foreign exchange impacts), primarily driven

    by growth in both western Europe and emerging markets such as China.

The Company’s OIBDAN1 was up 9%, or $39 million, to

$479 million for the three months ended September 30, 2014, versus

$441 million for the same period of 2013. Included in OIBDAN for the

third quarter of both 2014 and 2013 were $10 million and $8 million of

operating and corporate expenses, respectively, associated with the

Company’s strategic revenue and efficiency initiatives to attract

additional advertising dollars to its businesses and improve operating

efficiencies.

The consolidated net loss attributable to the Company was $115 million

in the third quarter of 2014 compared to a consolidated net loss

attributable to the Company of $102 million in the same period of 2013.

The consolidated net loss before income taxes was $83 million in the

third quarter of 2014 compared to a consolidated net loss before income

taxes of $166 million in the same period of 2013. The improvement in net

loss was due primarily to an increase in operating income as a result of

higher revenue, lower corporate expenses and a non-cash gain realized

upon the exchange of two radio stations held in the Aloha Station Trust,

LLC for a portfolio of 29 radio stations.

The air quality is deteriorating gradually mostly in urban areas. In urban area the air pollution is a common thing in comparison to the rural air. It is because of the smoke that release from the vehicles, the rising of dust levels, the fumes emerges out from various factories all are making the air polluted. The air quality has been, therefore, an issue of major health problems specifically various respiratory health problems. The most pollutants found in the air include suspended particle, nitrogen dioxide , sulphur dioxide and carbon dioxide . The concentration of suspended particle is very high in populated city areas. The various gases and suspended particles coming in contact with sun light create a type of air pollution called SMOG. The particulates found in SMOG are included smoke, dust, sand, various harmful gases, pollen. Those pollutants are the major factor for various respiratory diseases like allergic rhinitis, bronchial asthma, ARTI etc.

Those who are staying in metro cities even in small cities are constantly getting expose to the air pollution in their daily life. Some peoples have immune sensitive nature and when they come in contact of those air pollutants get the allergic symptoms. The allergic symptoms like repeated sneezing, runny nose, itchy eyes, itchy nose, red congested eyes are the more common symptoms found in many patient. This is not only frustrating but making the life miserable and hamper the routine schedule of daily work. In office suppose you start sneezing it continues for one after another and creates an embarrassed situation and also disturb the daily work. If this is not treated properly it may lead to bronchial asthma in future.

So when the allergic symptoms start you rush to the doctor for its treatment and used to take some tablet that gives relief of your present symptoms, but for a few hours or days. Again those symptoms reoccur and again you take the same medication and it gives relief. So it becomes a habit to take the medicines on regular basis. If you stop the medicine by chance the symptoms reappear again. The side effects of the medicines make you feel dizzy and lethargic. It makes you dull and reduces your enthusiasm for work. After a few years of this allergic condition you may feel gradually difficulties in breathing. You feel tightness in your chest while breathing. When you visit to doctor it is diagnosed allergic bronchial asthma. Then again you are prescribed some bronchodilator inhaler, for easy breathing and anti allergic medication. The inhaler dose gradually increases after a few months or year.

The whole scenario goes on year after year. The health problem starting at allergy now has been promoted to another health problem of asthma. The treatment what you are taking though giving a short term relief of your symptoms but in some way making you feel not giving a proper cure of the disease. It is not giving a long term solution or permanent cure of your health issues. The advice of the doctor to avoid this thing or that thing which do never practically possible by anybody in this pressure packed life schedule. There is also another option to change the work place. That also not possible and also not a wise advise against your health problem. You have to stay and live in this environment and need such a treatment that can make you healthy out of all the pollution present in the existing environment, because running out from the situation is not the real solution or taking any temporary treatment for also not an actual cure.

You need such a treatment that can cure your allergy condition and asthma condition not for temporary time but for a permanent period living in the same place. This can be achieved by the homeopathy treatment. Because the homeopathy treatment has the ability to gives a permanent cure for your allergic condition by targeting your hyposensitized nature of your immune system to modify it or bring back to the normal functioning state. In the same environment where you stay others are also staying. But they are not getting the allergic problem only you get affected. It is because your body immune system is very sensitive to certain substances or pollutant which create allergic reaction in your body, but not to all. So all the symptoms what are been shown result from your allergic sensitive nature of your immune system. The sneezing, runny nose, itchy eyes, red eyes are just the symptoms. Those are produced by the reaction process of allergen to your body immune cells. The medicines that target to control the symptoms give the relief as long as the medicine action is there. Because that only affecting to control the symptom in a very mechanical way. But the symptom is not the disease at all but the expression of the disease. So any treatment that suppresses the symptom creates an obstacle to cure the disease. The cure meaning is of a permanent disappearance or non appearance of all symptoms by any treatment living in the same environment. That can achieved if the treatment is targeted the root cause why it is occurring. The root cause is your body immune sensitive nature which is either inherited genetically or the constant exposure to the pollutant has made your immune system hypersensitive. Each one has its own identity in his mental, emotionally and physical level. It has been by birth or developed in the course of time by various stimulants that have caused the immune system to become hypersensitive.

The homeopathy treatment target to modify or improve that hypersensitive nature of immune system so it will not react adversely when do expose to the polluted environment. All persons are not similar by their nature, behaviors, emotional make up , physical make up. Homeopathy treatment is based to study the person as a whole from his emotional make up, nature, physical constitution, then to choose the correct medicine out of the thousands of medicine which is only suitable for that particular person. Then that medicine will hit to improve his hypersensitive immune system to a normal functioning immune system. Therefore every patient of a same disease is a new patient for a homeopathy doctor. It is not like one medicine that has been prescribed for any allergy or asthma patient would give same positive result to another allergy or asthma patient.

Here are 4 important homeopathy medicines for allergy and asthma

Hundreds of marches held around the US including in Washington DC, Seattle, Boston and San Francisco

Thousands of people across the US have marched in rain, snow and sweltering heat to demand action on climate change mass protests that coincided with president Donald Trumps 100th day in office and took aim at his agenda for rolling back environmental protections.

A sea of protesters taking part in the Peoples Climate March swarmed in front of the White House to demand Trump rethink plans to reverse the climate change policies.

Organisers said about 300 sister marches or rallies were being held around the country, including in Seattle, Boston and San Francisco.

A wet spring snow fell in Denver, where several hundred activists posed in the shape of a giant thermometer for a photograph and a dozen people rode stationary bikes to power the loudspeakers. In Chicago, a rain-soaked crowd of thousands headed from the citys federal plaza to Trump Tower.

In Washington, as temperatures rose above 90F, tens of thousands of people marched from the grounds of the US Capitol and passed the White House en route to the Washington Monument for a rally.

Participants on Saturday said they object to Trumps rollback of restrictions on mining, oil drilling and greenhouse gas emissions at coal-fired power plants, among other things.

Many of the protesters carried signs with slogans such as The seas are rising and so are we and Dont be a fossil fool. As the procession passed the Trump International Hotel on Pennsylvania Avenue, marchers booed and chanted shame.

While a good-natured mood prevailed and there were no signs of violence, many demonstrators said they were angered by the prospect of Trump carrying through on his vow to roll back protections put in place by his predecessor Barack Obama.

Were going to rise up and let them know that were sick and tired of seeing our children die of asthma, said Reverend Leo Woodberry of Florence, South Carolina, who spoke during a press conference before the march. Were sick and tired of seeing people with cancer because of coal ash ponds. Were sick and tired of seeing sea-level rise.

Elsewhere, more than 2,000 people gathered at the Maine State House in Augusta. Speakers included a lobsterman, a solar company owner and members of the Penobscot Nation tribe.

Ive seen firsthand the impacts of climate change to not only the Gulf of Maine, but also to our evolving fisheries, and to the coastal communities that depend upon them, said lobsterman Richard Nelson of Friendship, Maine.

People in the crowd spoke about the importance of addressing climate change to industries such as renewable energy, forestry, farming and seafood.

Trumps administration is considering withdrawing from the Paris Agreement, which more than 190 countries including the United States signed in hopes of curbing global warming. Trump has also proposed deep cuts for the Environmental Protection Agency and the elimination of many environmental regulations.

In his campaign, Trump called climate change a hoax. Last month he kept a promise to the coal industry by undoing climate-change rules put in place by Obama.

The US protests took place on the same day as similar demonstrations in Britain, Europe and Australia.

Washington (CNN)President Donald Trump is spending his 100th day in office not at the annual black-tie dinner that some say launched his bid for the White House, but with some of the people who sent him there.

Amid increasingly hostile relations between Trump and the media, Trump announced in February that he would not attend the White House correspondents’ dinner Saturday night — making him the first President since Ronald Reagan to miss the event (although Reagan, who was hospitalized after an assassination attempt at the Washington Hilton — the same hotel serving as the venue for Saturday’s dinner — gave remarks by phone).
Instead, Trump is holding a campaign-style rally in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, one of the states he wasn’t expected to win in November, with the aim of reminding some of his most ardent supporters that he has kept his campaign promises.
    Minutes into Trump’s Harrisburg speech, he told the crowd just how much he preferred spending the evening with supporters than the Washington media.
    “A large group of Hollywood actors and Washington media are consoling each other in a hotel ballroom in our nation’s capital right now,” he said. “They are gathered together for the White House correspondents’ dinner without the President.
    “And I could not possibly be more thrilled than to be more than 100 miles away from the Washington swamp spending my evening with all of you and with a much, much larger crowd and much better people,” Trump added.
    Trump’s absence from the dinner became a topic of conversation early in the event when White House Correspondents’ Association President Jeff Mason received a standing ovation after professing that the press is not the enemy of the American people — a reference to an attack line Trump delivered early in his presidency.
    “Tonight looks a little different, but the values that underpin this dinner have not changed. In fact I think they’ve been reinforced,” he said. “We are here to celebrate the press — not the presidency.”
    “Freedom of the press is a building block of our democracy,” Mason added. “Undermining that by seeking to delegitimize journalists is dangerous to a healthy republic.”
    Although Trump is skipping the chance to mingle and joke with the media, which he has routinely lambasted as “fake news,” the days leading up to his 100th in office, a traditional milestone for measuring an administration’s early achievements, have perhaps seen him give the highest number of sit-down interviews to media outlets since he entered office.
    Tension between the President and news organizations has been a hallmark of his early administration.
    Several news organizations withdrew from the White House correspondents’ dinner in protest of Trump’s treatment of the media before Trump decided he would not attend. Vanity Fair and Bloomberg, which usually co-host an exclusive, star-studded after-party, have canceled that gala, while The New Yorker canceled its pre-party, which would have happened Friday.
    The dinner has attracted national attention for attracting A-list celebrities, but the original purpose has been to raise money for journalism scholarships. With Trump and many celebrities skipping this year’s event, many media companies — including CNN — decided that instead of inviting celebrities as guests this year, journalism students would be their guests instead.
    The White House Correspondents Association also tapped “Daily Show” comedian Hasan Minhaj — who harshly criticized Trump at the Radio and Television correspondents’ dinner last year — to perform Saturday. Speaking at the event will be Bob Woodward and Carl Bernstein, who were Washington Post reporters when they famously broke the Watergate story that brought down President Richard Nixon.
    The last time Trump attended the dinner was in 2011, when he was a New York real estate mogul and reality-TV star who had just jumped into politics by getting involved in the “birther” movement, calling for President Barack Obama to release his birth certificate. Trump ended up being the butt of the jokes that night from comedian Seth Meyers and Obama himself.
    Trump’s rally Saturday is taking place in a state that no Republican had won in a general election since George H. W. Bush in 1988. Trump will attempt to remind those who sent him to the White House that he has indeed kept his campaign-trail promises, despite evidence to the contrary.
    Hours before the dinner, Trump tweeted that the “FAKE media” failed to trumpet his accomplishments. But Trump enters his 100th day without having passed any major legislation and with the lowest approval rating of any president during this time period.
    Still, a recent poll by ABC News and The Washington Post showed him retaining support among his base, with 96% of people who said they voted for him saying they would do so again. Trump, who already announced his plan to run for re-election, has raised tens of millions of dollars before he marked his 100th day in the White House.

    The Living with Schizophrenia survey was conducted online by

    Harris Poll on behalf of Otsuka America Pharmaceutical, Inc. and

    Lundbeck between March 26 and April 8, 2015, among 120 U.S. adults

    ages 18+ who self-report that they have been diagnosed with

    schizophrenia by a healthcare professional (“adults with

    schizophrenia”); 151 U.S. psychiatrists who treat adults ages 18+

    with schizophrenia; and 300 U.S. adults ages 18+ who provide

    unpaid care to an adult who has been diagnosed with schizophrenia

    (“caregivers”). The survey did not attempt to interview the direct

    caregivers of the adults with schizophrenia surveyed and, based on

    the anonymous nature of the survey, would not directly know that

    information. Any incidence of patient/caregiver-related

    respondents is purely coincidental. Patient and caregiver subjects

    were recruited from online panels and invited by email to

    participate in the survey. Adults with schizophrenia were not

    required to currently be on medication for their schizophrenia

    symptoms in order to participate in the survey; 21% of the

    participants were not taking medication at the time of the survey.

    Adults with schizophrenia self-reported their diagnosis and

    medication history, which was not confirmed with a physician.

    The objective of the Living with Schizophrenia survey was to

    understand patient, caregiver and physician perceptions and

    opinions of living with schizophrenia, caring for someone who

    lives with the disease and treating patients with the disease.

    Specifically, the survey sought to collect data on feelings,

    especially those of frustration, regarding various aspects of

    living with and managing schizophrenia, including medication.

    8.

    Physicians were recruited through standard mail to participate

    in an online survey, relying on the American Medical Association

    (AMA) master file as the sampling frame. Raw data were weighted on

    the basis of years in practice, sex, and region to reflect the

    population of practicing U.S. psychiatrists. No estimates of error

    can be or were computed.

    Washington (CNN)President Donald Trump hit on some of the biggest issues he has tried to tackle during his first 100 days in office at a rally Saturday in Pennsylvania, where he struck a consistently divisive and determined tone.

    The threat from North Korea, getting a health care bill passed and possibly renegotiating the Paris climate accord were among the big talking points of Trump’s nearly one-hour speech on his 100th day as President, which he delivered to a crowd in Harrisburg.
    “I’ll be making a big decision on the Paris accord over the next two weeks, and we will see what happens,” Trump said on the same day that protesters backing action on climate change took to the streets in Washington and other cities across the country as part of the “People’s Climate March.”
      While Trump’s raucous rally was straight out of his campaign playbook, he also did something he rarely does — call out, by name, US congressmen from Pennsylvania who were in attendance.
      “We’re going to give Americans the freedom to purchase the health care plans they want, not the health care forced on them by the government,” Trump said. “And I’ll be so angry at Congressman (Mike) Kelly and Congressman (Tom) Marino and all of our congressmen in this room if we don’t get that damn thing passed quickly.”
      Trump, who found his stride in front of large, cheering crowds across the country in states where his populist message resonates, took the stage Saturday night alongside Vice President Mike Pence.
      “There is no place I’d rather be than right here in Pennsylvania to celebrate our 100-day milestone, to reflect on an incredible journey together,” Trump said.
      In addition to speaking at the rally, Trump signed two executive orders in Harrisburg, one directing a review all US trade agreements and the second establishing the Office of Trade and Manufacturing Policy.
      Among the crowd favorites at Trump rallies are the President’s attacks on the press, and this especially rang true at Saturday’s event because many members of the press are celebrating at the White House Correspondents’ dinner in what Trump calls the “swamp” of Washington — setting up a prime-time duel with what has become his No. 1 foe, the media.
      “A large group of Hollywood actors and Washington media are consoling each other in a hotel ballroom in our nation’s capital right now,” Trump told the crowd. “They are gathered together for the White House Correspondents’ dinner — without the President. And I could not possibly be more thrilled than to be more than 100 miles away from Washington’s swamp, spending my evening with all of you and with a much, much larger crowd and much better people.”
      Trump held that divisive tone throughout the speech, prompting former presidential adviser and senior CNN political analyst David Gergen to call the remarks “deeply disturbing” in a special prime-time edition of “CNN Newsroom” with John Berman and Poppy Harlow.
      “This was the most divisive speech I have ever heard from a sitting American president,” Gergen said. “Others may disagree about that. He played to his base and he treated his other listeners, the rest of the people who have been disturbed about him or opposed him, he treated them basically as, ‘I don’t give a damn what you think because you’re frankly like the enemy.’ I thought it was a deeply disturbing speech.”
      This marks the first time in 36 years that a sitting president has not attended and spoken at the dinner. President Ronald Reagan missed the dinner while recovering in the hospital from an assassination attempt, but he still made remarks by phone. Richard Nixon was the last president to skip the dinner completely.
      The last time Trump attended the dinner was in 2011, when he was a New York real estate mogul and reality TV star who had just jumped into politics by getting involved in the “birther” movement, calling for President Barack Obama to release his birth certificate. Trump ended up being the butt of the jokes that night from comedian Seth Meyers and Obama himself.
      But no matter where he was, the spotlight was on Trump on Saturday since the day also marked a significant milestone in the career of a president. After serving as commander in chief for 100 days, his achievements, as well as shortfalls, were being closely scrutinized.
      On paper, Trump lacks a major legislative achievement, has the lowest approval ratings of any new commander in chief since World War II, has seen several key immigration goals held up by the courts and has failed to deliver the health care overhaul he promised again and again on the campaign trail.
      Trump’s sole big win has been the successful nomination of Neil Gorsuch to the Supreme Court — something a president hasn’t done in his first 100 days since James Garfield appointed a justice within that time frame 136 years ago.
      Trump, a longtime critic of the number of Obama’s executive orders, issued more executive orders in his first 100 days than any other president aside from Harry Truman.
      It’s also been 100 days plagued with controversy, from appointing his daughter Ivanka and son-in-law Jared Kushner to key White House posts to dealing with allegations of possible ties between some of his campaign aides and Russia.
      His campaign promises on such major items as repealing and replacing Obamacare and overhauling the tax code — things he rallied crowds with for months all over the country — have yet to be enacted. Even his promise to build a wall on the border with Mexico is caught up in a spending debate, with no support from Democrats and little to no progress being made.

      Here’s some bad news for Android users: Researchers have uncovered 41 Android apps in the Google Play store that are leaking sensitive data, ranging from credit card information and email content to social networking site passwords, new research suggests.

      Researchers at Leibniz University of Hannover and Philipps University of Marburg in Germany have released findings that indicate various Android apps currently available for download are subject to major encryption issues. (Note: The study was only conducted among Android apps, but app security issues are likely to pop up on other platforms, as well).

      The team used a Samsung Galaxy Nexus smartphone operating on Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich to conduct testing and began the study by downloading 13,500 free apps. About 1,074 apps — or 8% of the sample — contained code that was potentially vulnerable to man-in-the-middle (MITM) attacks, which allows a cybercriminal to intercept a message or data that is assumed to be private and secure.

      The team did a manual audit of 100 of those apps and was able to successfully launch attacks against 41.

      “Of the 100 apps selected for manual audit, 41 apps proved to have exploitable vulnerabilities,” the researchers said. “We could gather bank account information, payment credentials for PayPal, American Express and others. Furthermore, Facebook, email and cloud storage credentials and messages were leaked, access to IP cameras was gained and control channels for apps and remote servers could be subverted.”

      After retrieving the information, the team said they were “able to inject virus signatures into an anti-virus app to detect arbitrary apps as a virus or disable virus detection completely.”

      Although the researchers didn’t name the apps, they provided some details on certain services. For example, they “successfully attacked a very popular cross-platform messaging service” — which has a user base between 10 and 50 million users — and was able to obtain telephone numbers from users’ address books.

      Also at risk is an app for a popular Web 2.0 site with an install base of 500,000 to 1 million users.

      “When using a Facebook or Google account for login, the app initiates OAuth login sequences and leaks Facebook or Google login credentials,” the research said.

      Google declined to comment on the study.

      (CNN)“Many Americans” had a tougher past 100 days — coinciding with the first months of Donald Trump’s presidency — than the President himself, CNN’s Jake Tapper said on “The Lead” Friday.

      Tapper responded: “The notion that President Trump thought the job of President of the United States of America would be easier than hosting ‘Celebrity Apprentice’ and running the Trump business empire is pretty stunning.”
      Tapper then went on to name a handful of Americans who have had a difficult past few months — many of them as a result of Trump’s policies.
        “There’s Kraig Moss, who lost his son Rob in the opioid crisis in 2014 and believed Trump when he said he would do something about the crisis. In fact, Kraig supported Trump so strongly he traveled the country to Trump rallies singing the candidate’s praises. After the health care bill, Moss says he will never vote for Trump again,” Tapper said.
        The White House attempted to revive a health care reform package ahead of the President’s 100 days in office, but that has not come into fruition.
        Tapper then mentioned Emmanuel Ayala Frutos, one of the so-called DREAMers — people brought to this country illegally by their parents. The President has said he feels sympathy for DREAMers in the past.
        “Frutos was brought here when he was 6. Recently, he was held in detention for 18 days. He and other DREAMers live in constant fear as the President cracks down on illegal immigration and they don’t know what’s going to happen to them,” Tapper continued.
        Then there’s cancer patient Melissa Nance, who’s worried about losing her health insurance.
        “She’s covered by Obamacare now, but insurers are pulling out of her state of Tennessee. Trump said he would take care of this, he said he would fix it, he said it would be easy. but Congress has passed nothing,” Tapper said.
        “I could go on and on,” Tapper continued, “The factory workers who were told by the President that he would bring their jobs back though he has not introduced a jobs bill yet. The troops in harms way wondering if the President has any actual foreign policy strategy or if he’s just winging it with them on the front lines.”
        “These Americans are depending on you, Mr. President,” Tapper said, “These are the people who have had a rough 100 days.”
