Yahoo Exec Tapped To Head Prometheus Global Media

Posted On Sep 14 2019 by

first_img“In stewarding the iconic brands of PGM, Guggenheim Digital Media will forge even stronger partnerships across all Guggenheim-related media and entertainment assets, including Dick Clark Productions,” Todd Boehly, president of Guggenheim Partners, wrote in an announcement, as initially reported by Adweek. “GDM will also make new, ground-breaking investments and partnerships in the music, media, technology, and digital entertainment spaces that meaningfully build on and expand our current portfolio. And, while new digital media investments will be a core focus going forward, we also plan to continue our investment in both the print versions and live events of our existing properties.”In addition to his two-year term at Yahoo, Levinsohn has spent time in traditional media—mainly television. He has worked with HBO, CBS Sportsline and Fox Interactive. While his background seems to be mainly in digital and broadcast media, the new CEO reassured his new team that traditional magazine media still has a place in the company.”While there’s digital in the title of this company, the importance of print goes without saying,” he said in a meeting with New York employees, Adweek reports. “I don’t think print is something that goes away.” Stay updated on the latest FOLIO: news, follow us on Facebook & Twitter! Yahoo’s former interim-CEO Ross Levinsohn (pictured) may have been passed over for Marissa Mayer this summer, but he is now back in an executive driver’s seat—this time as CEO of Prometheus Global Media, publisher of Adweek, The Hollywood Reporter, Back Stage and Billboard, among others.  In an additional change-up that comes with the new CEO, the company has been renamed Guggenheim Digital Media (GDM), according to an announcement posted on Adweek. Financial services firm Guggenheim Partners has acquired the remaining stake in Prometheus from Pluribus Capital.This is the second CEO change up for the company in the last six months—in July, Guggenheim Partners senior managing director Dottie Mattison was named CEO of Prometheus Global Media. Mattison will stay on as a member of the board of GDM.last_img read more

Probe body formed over attack on London HC

Posted On Sep 3 2019 by

first_imgThe government has formed a high-profile probe body to look into the attack on the Bangladesh High Commission in London on 7 February, reports UNB.Permanent representative of Bangladesh to the United Nations in New York Masud Bin Momen has been made head of the probe committee, a diplomatic source told UNB without elaborating the composition of the investigation committee.Meanwhile, Bangladesh deputy high commissioner in London Khondker M Talha has been withdrawn and asked to join the foreign ministry in Dhaka before 7 May.Another source said the government has not shown any reason behind the withdrawal of Talha who has been in London for nearly three years and eight months.He is expected to return to Dhaka on 3 May.During the attack, Talha was acting as Bangladesh high commissioner in London.Leaders and activists of BNP reportedly attacked the staff of Bangladesh High Commission in London and ransacked its furniture which the government termed tantamount to an attack on Bangladesh.The high commission came under sudden attack on 7 February afternoon ahead of the verdict in the Zia Orphanage Trust graft case against BNP chairperson Khaleda Zia.Khaleda, also a former prime minister, was jailed for five years on 8 February after she was found guilty in the case.Police were there and the attack took place in presence of police.The Bangladesh High Commission in London in a statement had said the BNP activists and members of its wings forcibly entered the high commission in the pretext of submitting a memorandum. They attacked the high commission staff and vandalised assets of the mission.Bangladesh High Commission in London represents Bangladesh in the UK. So, damaging the high commission’s asset is like damaging state assets, and attack on the high commission is tantamount to attack on Bangladesh, the high commission had said in the statement read out by foreign minister AH Mahmood Ali at press conference in Dhaka on 8 February.Such destructive activities by the unruly demonstrators and their conducts tarnished Bangladesh’s image abroad, the high commission had said.last_img read more


Quota protestors suspend decision to boycott exams

Researchers discover a way to switch liquid crystals off faster

Posted On Aug 31 2019 by

first_img LCDs, have of course, become widely popular as the display type of choice for computers, smarthphones and handheld devices—they form the most basic part of such screens, the pixels. Each pixel is made up of a sandwich of liquid crystals set between pairs of glass plates—one of which polarizes light shone from behind. Light movement is controlled by turning on or off a small electric charge to cause the crystals to rotate a little bit or to relax. With state of the art technology, rotating the crystals happens very quickly when current is applied—it’s the relaxing back to their natural state that occurs relatively slowly. In this new effort, the researchers found a way around this problem by using crystals that don’t need to be rotated to control the way light is allowed to pass through, or not.The solution was found in using a type of molecule called CCN-47 as the basis for the crystals—when placed together in a solution they naturally align in a perpendicular fashion. This meant that they wouldn’t have to be rotated to change light passing through. Instead, they found that using such molecules as the basis for crystals meant that the polarization of the light could be rotated (by changing the way the electric field was applied) instead of the crystals—a much faster process. Testing showed the relaxation state could be achieved in just 30 nanoseconds instead of the usual several milliseconds.The researchers don’t expect this new type of LCD to replace those now used for common display devices—those are now fast enough that any gains in speed would not be noticeable to the human eye. Instead, they believe the new types of LCDs might be used to make new kinds of lasers for use in satellite communications or perhaps in cameras.

Its Achilles heel is a slow (millisecond) relaxation from the field-on to the field-off state. We present an electro-optic effect in an NLC with a response time of about 30 ns to both the field-on and field-off switching. This effect is caused by the electric field induced modification of the order parameters and does not require reorientation of the optic axis (director). This document is subject to copyright.

Former FARC Leaders Announce New Stage O

Posted On Aug 31 2019 by

first_img Jacobo Alape via YouTube by NPR News Sasha Ingber 8.29.19 4:45pm Top rebels from the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia have announced a “new stage of fighting,” despite a peace accord that the leftist guerrilla group signed with the national government almost three years ago.In a 32-minute YouTube video posted Thursday, more than 20 armed fighters stood in green fatigues and in front of a sign that read, “As long as there is a will to fight there will be hope for victory.”A guerrilla leader involved in the peace negotiations accused the government of betraying key components of the deal. “The state has not fulfilled its most important obligation, which is to guarantee the life of its citizens and especially avoid assassinations for political reasons,” said Luciano Marin, known widely by his nom de guerre, Iván Márquez.Under the peace treaty, thousands of Marxist- and Leninist-inspired guerrillas gave up their arms in exchange for the Colombian government’s commitment to protecting them and to building infrastructure in poor, isolated communities in the countryside. In May, Marin said that it was a mistake for FARC fighters to surrender their weapons without first getting guarantees.In the video, which appeared to be filmed in the jungle, Marin said the group planned to work with the National Liberation Army (ELN), another leftist guerrilla army which has resorted to kidnapping, extortion and violence.Hours later, an ELN leader embraced the announcement. “Better late than never,” Omar Gómez, known as Uriel, said through a face mask after giving a thumbs up and a clenched fist.Former FARC commander Rodrigo Londoño, now the president of Colombia’s Revolutionary Alternative Common Force political party, reiterated his commitment to the peace accord. He said on Thursday that the majority support working toward peace. “Now more than ever, our commitment as a majority, as a party, as a country, is to peace, defending and complying with the agreement,” he said. “Anyone who strays away from peace is mistaken, as those who have always attacked it.”Negotiations to end Colombia’s longest war, tracing back to the 1960s, started in 2012. Former President Juan Manuel Santos and Londoño signed a peace agreement in 2016. The move triggered a new wave of violence from armed groups that fought to take control of the FARC’s territory, displacing thousands in rural communities. Colombians, in a narrow margin, had previously voted to reject a peace deal.Last year, Colombians elected President Iván Duque, who campaigned on a promise to revise the controversial peace deal. A conservative populist, he said the agreement was too lenient for rebels who had kidnapped Colombian citizens and committed other atrocities. He vowed to make “war victims the focal point of the peace process.”Since taking office, he’s been accused of not just slowing down peace reforms but muddling significant facets of the agreement — especially tribunals that would allow insurgents to testify under broad immunity.”We cannot be stupid enough to think that … the government is an ally for peace,” Naryi Vargas, a researcher at the Peace and Reconciliation Foundation, an organization based in Colombia, tweeted Thursday.Bogota-based activist Luis Ernesto Gómez blamed Duque and former Colombian President Álvaro Uribe for FARC’s announcement. “Their political calculations and systematic sabotage of the Peace Process robbed us of a golden opportunity to stop killing each other and start making progress.”The 52-year war waged by FARC left at least 220,000 people dead.Duque has not publicly responded to the FARC video, and the Colombian Embassy in the United States did not immediately respond to NPR’s request for comment.Copyright 2019 NPR.
