Spotify on Thursday launched what it calls the 'Streaming Ad Insertion (SAI) at the ongoing CES 2020. Pixabay

Swedish music streaming company Spotify on Thursday launched what it calls the ‘Streaming Ad Insertion (SAI) at the ongoing CES 2020 here, a new proprietary podcast ad technology that powers Spotify Podcast Ads to insert more targeted advertising into podcasts in real time.

The SAI technology leverages streaming to deliver Spotify’s full digital suite of planning reporting and measurement capabilities for Spotify original and exclusive podcasts.


According to the company, this includes data such as actual ad impression, frequency (number of times a listener heard the ad), reach and anonymized audience insights (age, gender, device type). This is the first time this type of data is available for advertisers and podcast creators.

Advertisers generally have a sense for who they are reaching, based on survey data and the magazine’s target audience.

Total circulation measures the number of doorsteps that the issue hits, but there’s no precise data on how many readers actually opened the magazine, let alone reached or acted on the ad.

Until now, podcast advertising has experienced many of these same challenges because the medium is still largely downloaded via static Really Simple Syndication (RSS) feeds.

But the shift in consumption from downloads to streaming has opened the door for advances in data-driven podcast advertising, and the company is moving beyond these constraints to reimagine what is possible for this uniquely powerful and intimate medium.

Doris Lessing who won a Nobel Prize in Literature

London (CNN)- At five o'clock in the morning, the esteemed 86-year-old astrophysicist Jim Peebles was woken suddenly by the telephone ringing.

"In previous experience, the only phone calls at that time of night are bad news," he said. This one was great news. "The opening sentence from the caller was: 'The Nobel committee has voted to award you the Nobel Prize in Physics. Do you accept?'" Peebles recalled. The wording threw him. Who wouldn't accept a Nobel Prize? "You know the Bob Dylan fiasco?" he said during a phone interview with CNN. "That might have put the wind up them."The "fiasco" Peebles mentions refers to the 2016 Nobel Prize in Literature, which was controversially given to an utterly unimpressed Dylan.Aside from being ever-presents on college campuses in the 1960s, little connects Peebles, an expert in theoretical cosmology, with Dylan. But one of the starkest contrasts might lie in their reactions to winning a Nobel -- and the songwriter is far from the only laureate whose crowning turned out to be an awkward affair.

The five committees are notoriously secretive, fiercely shielding their choices from the outside world -- including the laureates themselves, who are told of their victories just minutes before they are announced to the public.

Sindoor implies the longevity of a woman's marriage to her husband in the Hindu tradition

Married Hindu women are recognised by a red streak of vermillion in the middle of their foreheads. This is traditionally called 'sindoor', which is derived from the Sanskrit word sindura, meaning 'red lead.'. Sindoor is traditionally powdered turmeric and lime, sometimes red saffron, or red sandalwood. It is also called vermilion, or Kumkum.
