The World Cup?s Biggest Winners: Us Media Giants

HHCA United set for Disney Cup - Columbia-Greene Media: Sports

The World Cup has broken all sorts of ratings records for ESPN, which will boost its ad revenue at a usually slow time of the year. That means Disney's sports behemoth has more than gotten its money's worth from the $100 million it paid for rights to the tournament. Though we won't see the impact of the highly rated soccer matches in Disney's next earnings report, coming on Aug. 8, CEO Bob Iger may provide some color on just how much of a boost the better-than-expected results of the tournament will provide to the company's bottom line. The big question now, whether the next two World Cups will provide as good a return on investment for Fox . Rupert Murdoch's network paid $425 million for the next two tournaments. It's possible that this year's exciting matches have created a slew of new devoted soccer fans, especially in the U.S. But on the downside, the 2018 and 2022 matches won't have the advantage of such a convenient time zone for U.S. viewersthey're in Russia and then Qatar.

With New Surgery, Heart Patient Reclaims Disney World Dream - Your Houston News: Living

Today, minimally invasive technology allows doctors to go through or around blockages. The devices used at Memorial Hermann Southwest are the only ones approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration for this medical condition. Here is how the technology works: An interventional cardiologist uses a special device that looks like a miniature plumbers snake to clear blockages. If the blockage is soft, like peanut butter, the device can go right through. If the blockage is hard, like concrete, the doctor manipulates the device around the blockage by moving it into the second layer of the arterys wall. The arterys tough outer layer is not punctured by the procedure. Once past the clog, the device pushes its way back into the interior of the artery. Thomlinson felt better almost immediately after the procedure in March.

Girl Meets World Creator Michael Jacobs And Disney Channel Executive Corey Marsh Discuss New Season And Mr. Feeny Deleted Scene On Maria Menounos' Afterbuzz Tv Network

'Transformers' tops 'Tammy' on weak July 4 weekend - Spokesman.com - July 6, 2014

We shot two scenes with Bill for the pilot, and I dont mind telling you because were being truthful here about what happened. The scene we shot with Bill was wonderful, and took you right out of the show...And it was a wonderful scene. I chose not to show it, which doesnt mean I wont show it eventually. The reason I chose not to show it was Corys the teacher, and Cory is not Feeny. Jacobs has a message for fans of Boy Meets World: To the original audience: stay. For those of you who left (the pilot) going, Its a little young, Im telling you, Stay. Jacobs says, The show brings back almost all of the original cast (of Boy Meets World). If you liked the pilot at all, you will love the next episode. Its better. And the one after that is better than that. And that, I think, is a good series. Jacobs speaks about the process of creating television that is both entertaining and educational. Ive been lucky enough to find a forum, he says. These shows reach --- because of the power of television --- a vast audience.

Apple iWatch And Disney - Business Insider

Tired of scrambling for your hotel key? Simply tap the wristband to your door. The wristband is connected to a credit card and is capable of replacing your wallet, keys, and theme park tickets throughout Disney's sprawling campus. It essentially acts as a digital ID that you wear around your wrist. The sensors within the band are also contextually aware and can detect where you are. Here's how Bajarin described one experience: But these RFID bands also had proximity features so when we were on a ride like Splash Mountain where they take a picture of you as you start the downward slide, it automatically sensed from our bands we were on the ride and that picture was automatically sent to our Disney picture site as well. Bajarin notes this mobile identity aspect could be crucial for the success of the iWatch. He even went so far as to say that Apple "would be crazy" not to pursue such an idea. What's more, this concept appears to seamlessly fit with other initiatives Apple is rumored to be prioritizing moving forward. Numerous reports have suggested that the company will dive deeper into mobile payments this year, and Bajarin's reasoning makes the iWatch seem like a perfect fit for that goal.

Hours at Walt Disney World for Independence Day 2014 - National disney world | Examiner.com

Take the time on the 4th of July to enjoy the sunset Needless to say there's a lot to look forward to on this upcoming trip. As we all know, one of the most important parts of planning your Disney vacation is figuring out which of Walt Disney World's more than 100 restaurants you'll be enjoying. While I still believe the idea of making dinner reservations three months ahead of time is an abhorrent practice it is an unfortunate reality. Naturally, I've begun looking at where I think we'll be and when and where we might want to eat. Some of my top choices are already booked 91 days out: no surprise there, but we won't suffer. There's plenty of food to be had throughout the resort. Besides, we'll be there for the Epcot Food and Wine Festival. Considering we're going to be walking distance from Epcot, I see us dining at festival booths throughout World Showcase for quite a lot of our meals. Still, I'll need to make a few dining reservations just in case.

New Soccer Merchandise Scores A Goal At Walt Disney World Resort | Tbo.com, The Tampa Tribune And The Tampa Times

Luxe suites and tech factor are new additions to Disney World | New York Post

Elsewhere at Walt Disney World Resort , we have recently introduced new soccer-themed goods that have a splash of Disney. Decorated in hues of blue, green, yellow and white, this small new assortment was created specifically for World Showcase at Epcot . The main logo features a silhouette of Mickey Mouse kicking a soccer ball, which was used on several apparel items, a glass mug and two open edition pins . These items can be found in select locations at Epcot and at the World of Disney in Downtown Disney Marketplace. The two open edition pins will also be released in select locations at Disneyland Resort . One of my favorite items is a limited release pin featuring Jose Carioca, a character not often seen on Disney merchandise. He was originally created for Walt Disneys Saludos Amigos in 1942, and now stars in the Mexico Pavilion attraction at Epcot, Gran Fiesta Tour Starring The Three Caballeros . This pin was released at Disney Traders and Village Traders in World Showcase at Epcot, World of Disney in Downtown Disney Marketplace and Sport Goofy at Disneys All-Star Sports Resort . Speaking of Epcot, you can watch many of the World Cup games in the Odyssey Center. Thats just one of many viewing locations at Walt Disney World Resort.

5 Coolest Walt Disney World Technologies And "innoventions" | Technologytell

Explosive Finale 2010 Huzzah! The standard anti-rollback system has kept us all alive on roller coasters of yore by catching the car at inches-apart intervals to prevent the train from rolling backward and inevitably killing us all. So, I guess the irritating noise is more than justified. But on the Expedition Everest, the train ridesalong just above the sawtooth-like anti-rollback brakethat would otherwise click at you emphatically. If it begins to slow its upward movement (no bueno) the ride forces the train down into the brakes. Why this upgrade? Well, Imagineers say it basically just sucked. More specifically, it was an unacceptable diversion from the rides Himalayan theme. So, yeah, it just sucked. 2.

Walt Disney World visitors can skip the front desk during Direct to Room check-in test (World View) by Adrienne Vincent-Phoenix

As the name implies, the new program allows select hotel guests to skip the front desk and go directly to their room upon arrival. The new offering is part of MyMagic+, Disney's billion-dollar technology initiative. advertisement The test is taking place through June 28, and guests who are selected to participate are contacted by e-mail with instructions on how to take advantage of the opportunity if they want. Participating hotels include these Value, Moderate, and Deluxe hotels, as well as Disney Vacation Club properties: Animal Kingdom Lodge and Villas Contemporary Resort and Bay Lake Tower Villas Pop Century Resort Port Orleans Resort French Quarter and Riverside To participate in the Direct to Room check in, visitors must first complete a number of steps to set up their online Disney profile, including creating a My Disney Experience account, linking their hotel reservation and ordering MagicBands. Prior to arrival, participants must use Disney's online resort check-in system and pay for any outstanding balance due on their reservation. In addition, participants have up to one hour before their anticipated arrival time to leave a credit card on file in the check-in process to cover any room charges. Once participants complete this check-in process, they just wait for an e-mail and/or text message (depending on the notification preferences set up during check-in) that notifies them that their room is ready, and provides the room number. The MagicBand device acts as the room key, so there is no need to go to the hotel lobby before heading to the room. If participants opt to receive an e-mail notification, the message includes a copy of the resort map marked with room number maps. Those who opt only for text message notifications receive a message that says simply, "Your room number XXXX is ready," and invites them to go directly to their room.
