News SoundCloud: Profitability Will Take Years Twitter Email Facebook When Will SoundCloud Be Profitable? soundcloud-profitability-will-take-years A regulatory filing spells out the long road to profit that SoundCloud hopes to travelPhilip MerrillGRAMMYs Sep 12, 2017 – 1:16 pm Streaming music is succeeding as top services Amazon Music, Apple Music and Spotify are adding millions of paid subscribers, but the struggle to get into the black and see profit is crucial, especially for the long-term survival of streaming service SoundCloud.An online platform that has helped new stars such as Chance The Rapper and Kygo rise to international prominence, SoundCloud is beloved but love won’t pay the bills. Investors came to its rescue in August to save the nearly shuttered service but SoundCloud’s millions of free users have diminished somewhat and the two tiers of SoundCloud Go premium have not reached the point where it’s profitable.Digital Music News uncovered a German regulatory filing spelling out the tough realities for SoundCloud moving forward.

[Representational Image]Reuters FileIndia’s Information Technology (IT) behemoth Tata Consultancy Services (TCS) have been sued by three US citizens from two different companies for alleged discrimination based on race and national origin. They are seeking exemplary and punitive damages from the IT giant.The Economic Times reported that, in a complaint to the District Court of New Jersey, the three complainants — Darryl Stacy, Donald Stephen Bradley and Hesham Hafez — have alleged that TCS prefers to bring in the human resources from India even though there are able and trained US citizens.The complaint further added that when it comes to hiring local talent, the company prefers Indian and South Asians over US citizens. The complaint is the latest addition to a number of litigations filed against Indian IT companies operating in the US including TCS, Infosys and HCL Technologies.The complaint has come at a time when the United States president Donald Trump has openly opposed immigration in the country. The Trump administration has ordered for an increased inspection on the issuance of the H-1B visa; additionally, it is also working towards withdrawing an Obama-era policy that allowed spouses of H-1B visa workers to work in the US. Employees of Tata Consultancy Services (TCS) work inside the company headquarters in Mumbai March 14, 2013.Reuters FileThe complaint said: “TCS’ president for North America Surya Kant and vice president and head of human resources Narasimhan Srinivasan devised and implemented a nationwide ‘leadership directive’ to utilize TCS’s visa-ready South Asian employees (also known as ‘expats’) to the ‘maximum extent’ when filling US positions.”Stacy and Bradley were ex-employees of Southern California Edison, the primary electricity supply company in southern California. While on the other hand, Hafez worked with Royal Bank of Scotland in Connecticut. The complainants are being represented by Kotchen & Low, the firm that is also representing some other employees of Southern California Edison in a class-action lawsuit against TCS related in a similar case of discrimination. It is the same law firm which has filed that case against Infosys and HCL Technologies.However, the TCS management defended the company and argued that “the allegations by the plaintiffs are baseless, and is confident that it will successfully defend itself”.

And evidence certainly exists of such rifts – from the recent Alabama runoff election, to several US Senators and Texas House speaker Joe Straus choosing not to run for re-election in the face of likely primary challenges.But there’s far less attention being paid to potential rifts in the Democratic party, divisions evidenced during the 2016 presidential campaign between supporters of Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders.What steps have been taken to bridge that divide? Is the Democratic party any closer to a unified message than Republicans? And, if so, how much of that message is simply unification against the GOP? Can a party built on bringing disparate groups together coalesce around common goals and a common message that could actually lead to change in current political dynamics in coming elections?We talk it over with Jay Aiyer, political science professor at Texas Southern University and co-host of Houston Public Media’s Party Politics podcast. 00:00 /10:29
