NEW YORK, Nov. 26, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- E-reading devices and ebooks continue to be popular with children, based on the results of a recent survey from PlayCollective and Digital Book World. In fact, e-readers and ebooks will be among the hot technology gifts for kids during the 2014 holiday season. Digital Book World is an online educational and news platform, and PlayCollective is a global strategy, research and product group. See digitalbookworld.com and playcollective.com. According to the survey, more than 45 percent of all parents with children between the ages of 2 and 13 plan to purchase a new device for their child to read ebooks this holiday season. Of those parents who already own a device, 50 percent are planning to purchase a new one this season, up 4 percent from last year, and more than half (58 percent) of these parents intend for the device to belong primarily to their child. Findings from the Survey (all below are among families that already own a device and have children who e-read): Although tablets have reigned for the past two years, the Kindle e-reader is the device parents most intend to purchase this year (26 percent), perhaps because the growing variety of tablets has splintered the competition. The Kindle Fire was the top choice for 2013, but the percentage of parents choosing the Fire has decreased from 29 percent to 12 percent, likely due to the introduction of the Kindle Fire HD (12 percent) and the Kindle Fire HD Kids Edition (17 percent). Kindle products are followed by non-iPad tablet devices (14 percent), the iPad 4 (12 percent) and second-generation iPad Mini (12 percent), and a laptop or computer (12 percent). Purchase intent is lowest for older-version iPads and non-Kindle designated e-readers. Three-quarters (75 percent) plan to purchase new ebooks…
SANTA YSABEL, Calif., Nov. 24, 2014 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Cruz Bustamante, spokesman for Santa Ysabel Interactive, an enterprise of the Santa Ysabel Tribal Development Corporation issued the following statement responding to the State of California's lawsuit that attempts to severely undermine the inherent sovereign rights of the Iipay Nation of Santa Ysabel and its Class II gaming rights under federal law pursuant to the Indian Gaming Regulatory Act (IGRA). "The complaint filed last week by the State of California against the Iipay Nation of Santa Ysabel lacks both substance and merit and attacks tribal sovereignty. We look forward to having the opportunity to demonstrate the legality, regulatory veracity and consumer safety of the Tribe's interactive Class II bingo enterprise. "With this lawsuit, the State of California is attacking the sovereignty of all tribes. The suit is intent on obstructing the rights and economic vitality afforded to federally-recognized Indian tribes under the Indian Gaming Regulatory Act (IGRA). The State's misguided attack completely ignores existing federal regulations and guidelines encompassed in the Cabazon Decision of the United States Supreme Court, which remains the law of the land. It is a thinly veiled attempt to weaken tribal governments as the State prepares to negotiate compacts with many of the California Tribes. This action by the State should be of great concern to all Tribes in California and elsewhere because it reflects a tactic that if successful would set a dangerous legal precedent that could be used in other jurisdictions to undermine and attack tribal sovereignty." "Santa Ysabel Interactive and the Santa Ysabel Gaming Commission (SYGC) have constructed a business model and regulatory structure that is completely transparent and compliant with all applicable SYGC and NIGC regulations. The transparency is such that the SYGC regulations are and have been available to the public for months…
NEW YORK, Nov. 20, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Today wine enthusiasts across the country rejoice as the first bottles of award-winning Georges Duboeuf Beaujolais Nouveau 2014 arrive in the United States. Four days before the official arrival more than 100 wine experts gathered in France for The Lyon-Beaujolais Nouveau Trophy, the only official Beaujolais Nouveau competition in the world, organized in partnership with the Association of French Oenologists from the Burgundy Central-East Region and Inter Beaujolais. Measured against nearly 400 other samples, the 2014 Georges Duboeuf Beaujolais Nouveau and Beaujolais-Villages Nouveau were awarded the coveted Gold Medal. Since this French wine first came to the U.S. in 1982, Beaujolais Nouveau Day has been an annual celebration to honor the end of harvest and offer the first taste of the new vintage. Released at 12:01 am on the third Thursday in November per French law, Beaujolais Nouveau is a bright, flavorful red wine made from the Gamay grape. The 2014 label is reminiscent of the lush Beaujolais vineyards and bright colors of the harvest. The wine is harmonious with well-balanced flavors bringing a harvest-to-table freshness to any holiday gathering. "The 2014 Beaujolais Nouveau is a ruby red color with crimson halos and delicate notes of red berry, which gradually develop into notes of blueberry and black currant," said winemaker Georges Duboeuf. "After tasting and analyzing more than 5,700 samples of wine, we are happy to report that the 2014 vintage is full-bodied and delightfully rich with structure reminiscent of the 2011 vintage, which was an exceptional year." To celebrate this year's Beaujolais Nouveau Day, second generation winemaker Franck Duboeuf uncorked the first bottles at a midnight party at New York City's Tribeca Rooftop, which was transformed into the vineyards and market squares of Beaujolais. Guests danced to live jazz, enjoyed French fare…
