27% of consumers in a Cowen survey said they used Netflix most often to watch video, more than cable, broadcast or YouTube

Reporter

U.S. consumers are using Netflix to watch video content more than any other platform, according to a survey of 2,500 people by financial firm Cowen Co.

In the survey, Cowen Co. asked respondents, “Which platforms do you use most often to view video content on TV?” Netflix Gianvito Rossi Suede Boots pxWPya5ud
came in first with 27% of respondents saying they used the streaming giant most often. Next in line was basic cable with 20%, and broadcast came in third, with 18.1%.

Netflix is an especial favorite with younger viewers, analysts at Cowen Co. said. Almost 40% of respondents aged 18 to 24 years old said they used Netflix most often to view video content, 23% more than Alphabet-owned GOOGL, -2.26% YouTube, which was second among young respondents.

Even when Cowen Co. excluded people who had never used cable and those who had dropped their cable subscriptions, Netflix still came in second with 24%, just under basic cable with 26%.

The survey “highlights the importance of Netflix in the home, particularly among millennials,” wrote Cowen Co. senior research analyst John Blackledge.

Netflix shares have performed well as the streaming giant gains more subscribers and invests heavily in content, with shares more than doubling in price so far this year. Investors remain bullish about its prospects and are expecting strong results when the company reports its second-quarter earnings on July 16.

A dictionary entry for the word “influential” might easily place a picture of Television and stop there. The band has a devout following worldwide and has had a major effect on British post-punk rock as well as American indie rock.

Starting in New York’s East Village in 1973, the band, consisting of Tom Verlaine, Richard Hell, Billy Ficca and Richard Lloyd, were at the center of the scene soon to be labeled punk. The band crystalized with the departure of Hell in 1975 and the addition of Fred Smith on Bass.

Television’s debut album released in February 1977 Marquee Moon was hailed by critics as one of the most striking and original recording debuts in years. The scissory, cascading guitar lines, the jabbing vocals, and the “psychotic calypso” drumming demonstrated that there was nothing punky or muddled about Television — it has the silvery clarity of a poised knife — and the writers gushed:

“One of the most deliriously exciting debut albums I’ve ever heard” — Newsday

“An obvious, unashamed classic” — Sounds

“They loom, as the Stravinskys of rock” — N.Y. Daily News

“The most powerful and passionate rock to come out of anywhere…” — Village Voice

“As of this moment, Verlaine is probably the most exciting electric lead guitar player… N.M.E

Roy Trakin wrote in the SoHo Weekly, “forget everything you’ve heard about Television, forget punk, forget New York, forget CBGB’s … hell, forget rock and roll—this is the real item. Recently, critics ranked it number 83 on cable music channel VH1’S list of the 100 Greatest Albums of Rock and Roll, number 128 on Rolling Stone’s list of the 500 greatest albums of all time. It was ranked number two on Uncut magazine’s 100 Greatest Debut Records, and number 3 on Pitchfork Media’s list of the best albums of the 1970s.

Television’s second album, Adventure was issued in 1978 and the distinctive guitar work is still evident there, most notably on the tracks “Glory,” “Foxhole” and “The Fire.

Various problems within the group led to a breakup later that year, with Verlaine and Lloyd pursuing solo careers.

In 1992 Television reunited to record a self-titled album that was well received by critics, who noted admiringly that the band’s trademarks — brilliant guitar work, clever songwriting, and noirish lyrics — were all still in evidence. The reunited band did a world tour in 1993, including show’s at the Glastonbury and All Tomorrow’s Parties festivals in England.

In 2007, the band announced Richard Lloyd would be amicably leaving the group and guitarist Jimmy Rip, a collaborator on most of Verlaine’s solo recordings and tours since 1981, would be taking his place.

2013… 40 years since the bands founding, has seen them more active than anytime in many years. Not only have they have just completed a sold out tour of South America and Asia, there is a new record in the works. Television is back. Less -

Nonetheless there are evolutionary biologists (see ‘Yes, urgently’ ) who argue that theory has since ossified around genetic concepts. More specifically, they contend that four phenomena are important evolutionary processes: phenotypic plasticity, niche construction, inclusive inheritance and developmental bias. We could not agree more. We study them ourselves.

But we do not think that these processes deserve such special attention as to merit a new name such as ‘extended evolutionary synthesis’. Below we outline three reasons why we believe that these topics already receive their due in current evolutionary theory.

The evolutionary phenomena championed by Laland and colleagues are already well integrated into evolutionary biology, where they have long provided useful insights. Indeed, all of these concepts date back to Darwin himself, as exemplified by his analysis of the feedback that occurred as earthworms became adapted to their life in soil.

Today we call such a process niche construction, but the new name does not alter the fact that evolutionary biologists have been studying feedback between organisms and the environment for well over a century 13 . Stunning adaptations such as termite mounds, beaver dams, and bowerbird displays have long been a staple of evolutionary studies. No less spectacular are cases that can only be appreciated at the microscopic or molecular scale, such as viruses that hijack host cells to reproduce and ‘quorum sensing’, a sort of group think by bacteria.

Another process, phenotypic plasticity, has drawn considerable attention from evolutionary biologists. Countless cases in which the environment influences trait variation have been documented — from the jaws of cichlid fishes that change shape when food sources alter, to leaf-mimicking insects that are brown if born in the dry season and green in the wet. Technological advances in the past decade have revealed an incredible degree of plasticity in gene expression in response to diverse environmental conditions, opening the door to understanding its material basis. Much discussed, too, was a book Geox Sozy sandals PmGCH
by behavioural scientist Mary Jane West-Eberhard that explored how plasticity might precede genetic changes during adaptation.

So, none of the phenomena championed by Laland and colleagues are neglected in evolutionary biology. Like all ideas, however, they need to prove their value in the marketplace of rigorous theory, empirical results and critical discussion. The prominence that these four phenomena command in the discourse of contemporary evolutionary theory reflects their proven explanatory power, not a lack of attention.

Furthermore, the phenomena that interest Laland and colleagues are just four among many that offer promise for future advances in evolutionary biology. Most evolutionary biologists have a list of topics that they would like to see given more attention. Some would argue that epistasis — complex interactions among genetic variants — has long been under-appreciated. Others would advocate for cryptic genetic variation (mutations that affect only traits under specific genetic or environmental conditions). Still others would stress the importance of extinction, or adaptation to climate change, or the evolution of behaviour. The list goes on.
