Pandora CEO Resigns As Internet Radio Service Sees More Losses

first_imgAfter more than nine years of leadership, Pandora CEO, President and Chairman Joe Kennedy has resigned, making the announcement during Pandora’s quarterly earnings call on Thursday. The company’s board of directors has formed a search committee to find a suitable successor, and Kennedy will stay in his current role until the replacement is brought in.Kennedy and Pandora wished to wind down their relationship on a positive note, citing milestones like 67 million monthly active listeners and 70% market share. But most telling were the company’s revenue and income figures. In fiscal 2013, Pandora totaled $427.1 million in revenue and $255.9 million in mobile revenue, with $125.1 million in revenue for the quarter that ended on January 31.While those numbers beat Wall Street expectations and represent record revenue for the company, it still wasn’t enough to push Pandora into profitability – and Wall Street doesn’t like it when a post-IPO company is growing but still loses money. That likely translated into Kennedy’s decision to step down.On that $125 million in Q4 revenue, Pandora took a quarterly loss of $14.6 million (9 cents per share), which exceeds its year-ago quarterly loss of $8.5 million (5 cents per share) on revenue of $81 million. Given the long string of losses, Pandora has been aggressively seeking ways to wring more cash from its subscribers, including limits on free listening and a fierce lobbying effort against royalty fees.(See also Pandora Remixes Its Free Listening Limits.) The Oakland, Calif.-based music recommendation service has had an up-and-down ride on the market since its IPO in the summer of 2011. Initially, Pandora opened at $16 per share and jumped into the $20s, but has since hovered just into the double-digit mark as the company scrambles to find ways to turn a profit.(See also Could Music Licensing Costs Kill Pandora? Ask Lastfm.)Despite the tumultuous relationship with investors, Wall Street seems to be responding well to Kennedy’s decision: Pandora shares jumped almost 20%, to $13.96, in after-hours trading. 4 Keys to a Kid-Safe App 5 Outdoor Activities for Beating Office Burnout Tags:#internet radio#Pandora#streaming music Related Posts center_img nick statt 9 Books That Make Perfect Gifts for Industry Ex… 12 Unique Gifts for the Hard-to-Shop-for People…last_img read more

Five dead in West Bengal as heavy rain lashes State

first_imgIncessant rains due and the subsequent deluge claimed five lives in Kolkata and adjoining districts on Tuesday. While two persons died when parts of an old dilapidated two storied building collapsed in the Taltala area in central Kolkata three others died in the districts of south Bengal.According to Kolkata Police at around 12.25 pm the old building collapsed. Three fire engines along with personnel of disaster management group were pressed into rescue operation, which went for several hours.“At around 4.25 pm the bodies of two persons-Himadri Pahar (38) and Hansa Shaw (20) were extricated from the debris and sent to Calcutta Medical College and Hospital for legal procedure,” a statement by Kolkata police said.Meanwhile, the situation remained grim in Birbhum, Purulia, Bankura, and Hooghly district of south Bengal. While two persons died in Purulia when a wall collapsed on them, one person died in Birbhum when he was washed away during the day.In Purulia two persons-Sikandar Mirza (30) and Siaz Khan (12)- died and five got injured in the Nanduara village in the district’s Raghunathpur sub-division when an earthen boundary wall of a house collapsed on them, District Magistrate of Purulia Alokesh Prasad Roy told The Hindu.He also said that so far waterlogging has not turned out to be severe in the district with only some areas of Jhalda I and Barabazr block witnessing some waterlogging.In Birbhum one person has died due to drowning in the afternoon in the Hatiea village of Labhpur block. While locals said that the situation in Labhpur has become “grim” with about 17 villages facing heavy waterlogging, the District Magistrate P.Mohangandhi claimed otherwise. “Labhpur being a low lying area, there is waterlogging in some areas. But so far it is not a cause of concern,” said Mr.Gandhi.As for Hooghly a senior district police official said that was a breach in an embankment on the Rupnarayan river at the Dhannobadi village under the Khanakul Assembly seat. “As a result nearly 16 villages in the area are facing severe waterlogging. The district administration is keeping an eye on the situation,” he said. One person Shyamal Sengupta (38) got washed away on Monday. However, Superintendent of Police Sukesh Jain said that “Mr.Sengupta’s body has not been found yet.” Areas such as Khanakul, Goghal, Arambagh in the district are facing severe waterlogging.In Bankura 1,000 people had to be to be shifted to relief camps due to severe waterlogging. “ There is severe waterlogging in Bankura II, Joypur, Kotalpur, Patrasayer, Mejhia and Onda blocks. We have set up six relief camps,” District Magistrate of Bankura Moumita Godara said.Meanwhile State’s Irrigation Minister Rajib Banerjee accused the Damodar Valley Corporation (DVC) for releasing waters from dams “without consulting” the State government. “The situation has become a cause of concern for us. Despite our repeated letters the DV is releasing water without consulting us,” he said. According to the Indian Meteorological Department, Bengal is likely to receive heavy rain at isolated places on Wednesday.last_img read more

Over 2 hours screen time daily will make your kids impulsive

first_imgNine-11 hours of sleep and no more than two hours of recreational screen time a day is what can save your children from becoming impulsive and make poorer decisions in life, find researchers. Impulsive behaviour is greatly linked to sleep and screen time, found Healthy Active Living and Obesity Research Group (HALO) at the CHEO Research Institute in Ottawa. “Impulsive behaviour is associated with numerous mental health and addiction problems, including eating disorders, behavioural addictions and substance abuse,” said Dr Michelle Guerrero, lead author from CHEO Research Institute and University of Ottawa. Also Read – An income drop can harm brainThe paper, published in the journal Pediatrics, analysed data for 4,524 children from the first set of data of a large longitudinal population study. In addition to sleep and screen time, the study also captured data related to physical activity – at least 60 minutes of moderate to vigorous exercise daily. The ABCD study allowed Guerrero and her team to look at the three pillars of the movement guidelines against eight measures of impulsivity, such as one’s tendency to seek out thrilling experiences, to set desired goals, to respond sensitively to rewarding or unpleasant stimuli, and to act rashly in negative and positive moods.last_img read more

90 mn hectare degraded land business opportunity for industries says Environment Ministry

first_imgNew Delhi: More than 90 million hectares of India’s degraded land area should be seen as a business opportunity by industries and it should be brought back to economic use, a senior official of the Environment Ministry said on Thursday. Speaking on ‘Role of Business and Industry in Land Restoration, Utilization of Degraded and Wasted Land’, ministry’s Special Secretary A K Jain urged industries to come up with business models for reclaiming the degraded land. Also Read – Thermal coal import may surpass 200 MT this fiscalThe event was organised by Federation of Indian Chambers of Commerce & Industry (FICCI) in run-up to the 14th meeting of the Conference of the Parties (COP-14) to the UN Convention to Combat Desertification (UNCCD), commencing here next week. “More than 90 million hectares of 320 million hectares of total area or about 30 per cent of India is wasteland. This should immediately be brought back into economic use. It is a big elephant in the room that all stakeholders including industries need to solve. The industry should see it as a business opportunity,” he said. Also Read – Food grain output seen at 140.57 mt in current fiscal on monsoon boostJain said the COP 14 offers a platform to all stakeholders to get together and have a dialogue to work towards monetising the degraded land both for environment and mutual benefit. “We are not here to take money. In fact, we are here to tell you that please make money. This is an offer to any corporate, industrial house or activity which relates to land. So, this offer is for infrastructure, food-based, biomass, energy companies and also those businesses that leave a lot of environmental footprints,” he added. Pradeep Monga, Deputy Executive Secretary, UNCCD said that FICCI’s event is the first in the run-up to COP-14 starting on September 2, where India is likely to take a very strong leadership role. “Investing in land restoration makes economic sense. We have done economic studies around the world and we feel if we invest $1 in land restoration, you can get $5-7 back, which makes a lot of business sense. Every 10 hectares can give you two direct jobs and there can be many indirect jobs,” Monga said.last_img read more

Whitehorse residents want better solutions for governmentrun emergency shelter

first_imgChris MacIntyreAPTN NewsA government-run emergency shelter in Whitehorse is drawing the ire of nearby residents and business owners.The former Salvation Army Centre of Hope was taken over by the Yukon government earlier this year with promises of improving service quality to meet residents’ needs.But locals say it’s common to see public intoxication and fights– and they’re not happy with the City of Whitehorse’s plan to address the situation.At a recent Whitehorse council meeting the city voted to spend $150,000 on benches, planting beds and trees around the building as part of a beautification project.Neighbours of the shelter say that money could be put to better use, such as in programming for shelter clients.Christine Tapp, the territorial government’s director for the social supports branch of its department of social services, says they are working to provide more programming in all areas of wellness for the centre’s residents.“I think we’ve taken a bit more of an active approach to our programming in the past month or so and we have plans to expand that further into the fall, including reassigning a couple of staff members to focus just on programming and to actually work with our guests to develop and to lead some of that programming,” she said.cmacintyre@aptn.calast_img read more

Hardware vulnerability exposed in majority of computers made in the last decade

first_imgTORONTO – Technology experts warn a “really, really serious” security vulnerability could affect the majority of computers made in the last decade, but a fix being rushed to users has a downside: it may slow down your machine.Tech news website the Register reported a glitch has been identified with Intel processing chips — found in most computers, including Apple’s Macs — that could cause data to become vulnerable to hackers.While software developers have been covertly working since late last year to address the widespread issue, news of the problem began spreading beyond the development community late Tuesday. Intel’s stock dropped about four per cent on Wednesday while the company’s main competitor AMD saw its stock surge by more than five per cent.“This is a really, really serious problem,” said Vlado Keselj, a professor of computer science at Dalhousie University.“The good news is I think it’s really hard to exploit this vulnerability. But it could just be a matter of time before someone manages to do that.”In a statement released Wednesday, Intel attempted to downplay worries about the hardware issue, saying it believes hackers “do not have the potential to corrupt, modify or delete data.” The company also said a performance hit from a future software update “should not be significant and will be mitigated over time.”Many details about the technical issue and possible solutions are still unknown. Intel said it had originally planned to disclose more information next week, once software updates were ready, but was compelled to release the statement after the issue began making headlines.An update for the Linux operating system has already been released and has provided some clues to the extent of the problem. But Keselj noted that care was taken to strip developers’ notes and comments out of the update, which typically give some context around the changes that are found in a new software release.“These patches are visible, anyone can open them and see what’s changed but developers removed comments. Without knowing exactly what the vulnerability is, it’s probably hard to exploit it, so it’s happening under the veil of secrecy which is probably good,” Keselj said.“We don’t want somebody to be able to exploit this before updates are made.”Keselj speculated the average user might not notice a dramatic drop in their computer’s performance and even gamers may not suffer a significant slowdown. But businesses that use enterprise software for running database servers could see an appreciable change in performance, which would put pressure on Intel, Keselj said.Prof. Raphael Khoury of the Universite du Quebec a Chicoutimi said it’s not unusual for major software or hardware vulnerabilities to go undetected for a long time but it’s good Intel is releasing its fix before damage could be done.“Maybe the initial patch will have a substantial slowdown and then in the coming weeks they can take their time to produce a better fix,” Khoury said.“It’s better to initially suffer through this slowdown, at least we’re secure.”Beyond just computers, there are many consumer devices nowadays that run off sophisticated hardware that could be open to similar vulnerabilities, said Prof. Sebastian Fischmeister of the University of Waterloo, adding that connected cars and high-tech medical devices are also susceptible.“If you don’t upgrade them then you have a lingering potential security problem,” said Fischmeister. “If you upgrade them then you have potential performance degradation that wasn’t anticipated during testing, so suddenly your (technology) might no longer work.”last_img read more

UNs climate change chief compromise and willingness needed at Cancun forum

“Cancun will be a success, if parties compromise,” said the Executive Secretary of the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC), Christiana Figueres, at a press briefing in Bonn, Germany, today. “They have to balance their expectations so that every one can carry home a positive achievement while allowing others to do the same – that’s how multilateral agreements are made elsewhere and it is how it has to happen in climate, too.”The upcoming conference of parties to the UNFCCC – known as the UN Climate Change Conference – takes place in Cancun between 29 November and 10 December. The UNFCCC is an international treaty which considers what can be done to reduce global warming and to cope with whatever temperature increases are inevitable. Some countries have approved an addition to the treaty, the Kyoto Protocol, which has more powerful and legally binding measures.Figueres acknowledged that there will still be “political gaps” which need bridging among countries attending the conference. These centre on how to move forward with emission reductions, deciding what to do about the Kyoto Protocol and how to anchor the many national targets and actions governments have put forward, in particular the targets of industrialized countries.While expectations for agreements on how best to tackle climate change at the conference are realistic, Ms. Figueres noted, “there’s still a lot at stake if the world is going to stay below a two degree temperature rise.”In response to a question, Ms. Figueres said that the conference needs to conclude with a balanced set of decisions, including on the issues of adaptation, forestry and technological cooperation. However, she said, in order to be a balanced package, any “agreement must also address the mitigation efforts by both industrialized countries as well as those developing countries that have already put mitigation intents on the table,” as well as provide some resolution about what the continuation of the Kyoto Protocol is going to be and the next steps to be taken by countries in relation to long-term financing of climate change measures.The climate change chief said that any agreement on tackling climate change in Cancun is not going solve the whole problem. “But it can set a new pace for negotiations, where governments lock in better agreements every year, never ruling out new possibilities or ignoring existing needs for the future,” she said, adding that if climate change is humanity’s biggest long-term challenge, it is also its greatest opportunity.“It is the sustained and increasingly ambitious long-term response to climate change that will allow a successful adjustment to the other great political, economic and social changes which all countries face,” Ms. Figueres said. 15 November 2010With just two weeks until the start in Mexico of a major global conference on climate change, the top United Nations official on the issue has emphasized the need for compromise in international efforts to reach a solution to the climate challenge. read more

Monk accuses BBS of assault

The monk said that he had had to return a house at Kalapaluwawa he had on rent and as a result the children there were stranded. Disappointed over the move the monk attempted to stage a protest outside the Bodu Bala Sena headquarters but was prevented from doing so by the BBS general secretary, ven. Galagoda Aththe Gnanasara thero.The venerable Malawwe Kalyana Dhamma thero claimed that he was verbally abused by the venerable Galagoda Aththe Gnanasara thero and also later assaulted.The thero claimed that eyewitnesses had said that he was unconscious for approximately 10 minutes following the assault. He had then made a request from the Bodu Bala Sena for a place and the Bodu Bala Sena had initially given a positive response.The venerable Malawwe Kalyana Dhamma thero however said that the Bodu Bala Sena had then reneged on its commitment. A Buddhist monk has accused the Bodu Bala Sena (BBS) of violating his right to freedom of expression and assaulting him.The venerable Malawwe Kalyana Dhamma thero said that members of the Bodu Bala Sena verbally abused and then assaulted him when he attempted to stage a peaceful protest outside the Bodu Bala Sena headquarters at Thunmulla last Wednesday. He said that the protest was over a request he had made to the BBS for a house to keep several orphans under his care. He was then taken away by the police and he later lodged a complaint with the police over the assault. The venerable Malawwe Kalyana Dhamma thero said that he had every right to stage a peaceful demonstration and that right was violated. read more

Marking International Day UN officials hail progress in reducing damage to ozone

“Just over a quarter-century ago, the world united to reverse the rapid depletion of the atmospheric ozone layer, which protects Earth from harmful radiation from space. Today, the ozone layer is well on track to recovery within the next few decades,” Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon said in his message for the International Day for the Preservation of the Ozone Layer.The Day is observed annually on 16 September, the date of the signing of the Montreal Protocol on Substances that Deplete the Ozone Layer, which entered into force in 1989. The Protocol establishes legally binding controls on the national production and consumption of ozone-depleting substances, and enjoys universal ratification by 197 parties.Recent scientific findings reveal the importance of the Montreal Protocol, said the Secretary-General, noting that without this treaty and associated agreements, atmospheric levels of ozone-depleting substances could have increased ten-fold by 2050. The Protocol has also significantly contributed to the fight against climate change, as many ozone-depleting substances are powerful greenhouse gases, he added. “Let us take inspiration from our efforts to preserve the ozone layer. The Montreal Protocol has shown that decisive action by the international community, including the private sector, can achieve transformative results for the common good. Let us learn from this example and apply its lesson to the urgent task of addressing the climate challenge,” Mr. Ban stated.The ozone layer, a fragile shield of gas, protects the Earth from the harmful portion of the sun’s ultraviolet rays, thus helping to preserve life on the planet. A report released last week by the UN Environment Programme (UNEP) and the UN World Meteorological Organization (WMO) found that the ozone layer is on track to recover by the middle of the century.The assessment by 300 scientists noted that the recovery is attributed to the collective action through the Montreal Protocol, which has led countries to carry out policies to reduce and then phase out their use of ozone-depleting chemicals. At the same time, the report called for the same level of urgency and unity to tackle the challenge of climate change. Among those celebrating the International Day, whose theme this year is “Ozone Layer Protection: The Mission Goes on,” is the UN Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO) and the other implementing agencies of the Montreal Protocol. “Today is a great opportunity for us to reflect on the remarkable progress that has been achieved in reducing the damage to the ozone layer. UNIDO is very pleased that our major contribution to the implementation of the Montreal Protocol over the years is now bearing fruit,” said Stephan Sicars, Director of UNIDO’s Montreal Protocol Branch. Through the promotion of clean production, UNIDO has supported industries to eliminate the use of ozone-depleting substances in manufacturing processes. The agency helps industries to either replace these substances with ozone- and climate-friendly substances, or to redesign their products entirely. UNIDO’s projects and programmes have helped a number of countries introduce new technologies that no longer use the harmful substances. “The Montreal Protocol has significantly reduced the atmospheric abundance of gases, such as chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs) and halons that were once used in products such as refrigerators, spray cans, insulation foam and fire extinguishers,” said Mr. Sicars.“With full compliance with the Montreal Protocol, the ozone layer is expected to recover to 1980 benchmark levels – the time before significant ozone layer depletion – around the middle of the century. This is great news.” read more

International tourism arrivals hit record high in 2017 UN agency reports

The latest edition of its Tourism Highlights, published on Monday, shows international arrivals reached 1.323 million last year.The figure represents an 84 million increase over 2016, and a new record, with the sector also recording “uninterrupted growth” in arrivals for eight consecutive years.Europe and Africa led the regions with increases in arrivals, with growth of eight per cent and nine per cent, respectively.WTO added that tourism is the world’s third largest export category, earning $1.3 trillion in receipts in 2017: an increase of five per cent.Meanwhile, total exports from international tourism stood at $1.6 trillion, or an average of $4 billion a day: that is, seven per cent of the world’s exports.“These strong 2017 results were driven by sustained travel demand for destinations across all world regions, including a firm recovery by those that have suffered from security challenges in recent years,” WTO said in a press release.“Strong outbound demand from virtually all source markets, including rebounds from major emerging economies Brazil and the Russian Federation, benefited both advanced and emerging destinations.”Seven of the 10 top tourism destinations are also leaders worldwide in both international tourist arrivals and international tourism receipts: China, France, Germany, Italy, Spain, the United Kingdom and the United States.China also was responsible for generating nearly one-fifth of the world’s total tourism spending in 2017. Citizens of the world’s most populous country spent $258 billion on international travel last year.WTO added that so far, 2018 shows international tourism continues to grow, “with a year-on-year increase of 6% in arrivals between January and April.” read more
