ONN – Promise, Mayor Schaaf’s Program, Focus Of City Auditor Investigation

According to the email sent by City Auditor Courtney Ruby, her office just finished an investigation of the Mayor of , Libby Schaaf’s “ Promise” program. Here is what Ruby wrote:

Today my Office released a substantiated investigation report concerning Promise. Following whistleblower allegations and questions from City Council, regarding the allocation of City funds and City facilities to Promise, our investigation found:
* the Mayor’s Office directed the City Administration to provide work space to Promise without following Municipal Code requirements;
* some aspects of the City’s involvement with Promise were not authorized, lacked transparency, and presented additional risks and costs to the City; and
* the City’s financial contributions to Promise – though complex and hard to follow – were neither prohibited nor irregular.

Note from News Now Technical: this video-blog post shows the full and live operation of the latest updated version of an experimental Zennie62Media mobile media video-blogging system network that was launched June 2018. The main system is a major part of Zennie62Media’s new and innovative approach to the production of news media. There, an uploaded video is from a vlogger with the Zennie62 on YouTube Partner Channel, then uploaded to and formatted automatically at the News Now site and Zennie62-owned social media pages. This part allows rapid conversion of videos from any source channel (with permission and from Zennie62 on ) to News Now blog posts. The overall objective is smartphone-enabled, real-time, on the scene reporting of news, interviews, observations, and happenings anywhere in the World and within seconds and not hours. Now, news is reported with a smartphone: no heavy and expensive cameras or even a laptop are necessary. The secondary objective is faster, and very inexpensive media production and distribution. We have found there is a disconnect between post length and time to product and revenue generated. With this, the problem is far less, though by no means solved. Zennie62Media is constantly working to improve the system network coding and seeks interested content and media technology partners.
