Hanley Wood Elevates Goldstone to President

first_imgPeter Goldstone, who served as president of Hanley Wood’s business media unit, has been promoted to the newly-created position of president of the company.In a memo to staffers, Hanley Wood CEO Frank Anton said that in addition to continuing to oversee the media business division, Goldstone [pictured] will lead the exhibitions group and help “forge a much tighter integration of the company’s go-to-market strategy with its magazines, Web sites and trade shows.”“We’re getting more serious about being a fully-integrated media company,” Anton told FOLIO:. “As we see it, this promotion will give us a significant competitive advantage in good times and bad.” As president, Goldstone will continue to report to Anton, as will marketing president Jeanne Milbrath, Market Intelligence group president Andy Reid, CFO Matt Flynn, CIO Jeff Craig and human resources vice president Bill McGrath.Last month, exhibitions group president Galen Poss and group executive vice president Michael Green resigned. Their departures marked a change in reporting structure within the group, as Poss’ replacement—former exhibitions vice president Rick McConnell—began reporting to Goldstone, not Anton. Hanley Wood’s new leadership structure is similar to the period between 1995 and 2005 when Mike Wood served as CEO and Anton served as president, reporting to Wood, Anton said.last_img read more

French president considers trip to Iran after Rouhani invite

first_imgFrench president Emmnauel Macron talks with French minister for the Armed Forces Florence Parly during a meeting at the Elysee Palace in Paris, France, on 13 October 2017. Photo ReutersFrench President Emmanuel Macron is considering visiting Iran after speaking by phone with his Iranian counterpart as US president said he was “decertifying” the nuclear deal with Tehran, the Elysee presidential office said Friday.Macron told Iranian president Hassan Rouhani that France remained committed to the 2015 nuclear agreement which, besides the USA, was also negotiated with Britain, China, Russia and Germany.“A trip to Iran by the president, at the invitation of president Rouhani, has been considered,” the Elysee said, while the Iranian presidential website said the visit would happen next year.Macron said the US decision “will not put an end to the Iranian nuclear accord and that together all the parties in France and its European partners will continue to meet their commitments.”Rouhani assured Macron that Iran in turn “will continue to carry out its commitments” in the nuclear accord, the Elysee said.The French leader added that it was also necessary to have a dialogue with Iran on other strategic issues including Tehran’s ballistic missile programme and stability in the region.Macron also spoke to Rouhani of his “wish to work with Iran for a lasting political solution to the Syrian crisis.” Tehran is a supporter of president Bashar al-Assad’s regime.Macron’s visit to Iran would be the first by a French head of state or government since 1976. French foreign minister Jean-Yves Le Drian is set to travel to the Islamic Republic in the next few weeks.Earlier on Friday, the leaders of France, Germany and Britain issued a joint statement saying they were “concerned” about Trump’s decision while reiterating their commitment to the deal.last_img read more

2 killed as gunman takes hostages in France

first_imgPolice are seen at the scene of a hostage situation in a supermarket in Trebes, Aude, France 23 March, 2018 in this picture obtained from a social media video. Photo: ReutersAt least two people were killed after a gunman claiming allegiance to the Islamic State group opened fire and took hostages at a supermarket in southwest France on Friday.A security source said the two were killed in the attack at a Super U store in the town of Trebes.Armed police were also responding to the earlier shooting of a policeman in the town of Carcassonne, 15 minutes drive away, which took place at around 11 am (1000 GMT).It was unclear if the two incidents were linked.In Trebes, a picturesque medieval town of around 5,000 people, the man “entered the Super U supermarket at around 11.15 am and shots were heard,” a source told AFP on condition of anonymity.A witness reported he shouted “Allahu Akbar” (God is greatest) before going into the premises, the source added.- Site off-limits -The gunman claimed allegiance to the Islamic State group, the local prosecutor’s office said, and the incident was being treated as a terror attack.Local authorities tweeted that the area around the supermarket was off-limits to the public, while Prime Minister Edouard Philippe said it was a “serious” incident.The shootings come with France still on high alert after a string of jihadist attacks since 2015, starting in January that year with the assault on satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo that left 12 people dead.France also suffered major attacks in Paris in November 2015 when IS jihadists killed 130 people in bombings and shootings at bars, restaurants, the Bataclan concert venue and the national stadium.In July 2016, in another attack claimed by IS, a man drove a truck through revellers celebrating Bastille Day in the Riviera resort of Nice, killing 84 people.A state of emergency put in place just after the Paris attacks was finally lifted in October last year, but soldiers continue to patrol major tourist sites and transport hubs under an anti-terror mission.If the link to Islamic State is confirmed, the hostage-taking would be the first deadly attack in France since October, when two young women were stabbed to death outside Marseille’s main train station.Interior Minister Gerard Collomb was heading to the scene, he wrote on Twitter.The area of southwest France where Friday’s shootings took place has been scarred by Islamic extremism before.In 2012, Mohamed Merah shot dead seven people including three Jewish schoolchildren in the nearby city of Toulouse.last_img read more

Bromium sets up business net around malware Update

The only headaches inherent in Bromium’s product might beset rival security companies that do business in anti-virus software and data protection. Ian Pratt, Bromium co-founder, said, “Traditional security products rely on being able to look at any document in advance and decide whether it contains malicious code which can be identified by `signatures’ already reported…. Yes, a bit like after the horse has bolted.” Malware can take ugly leap forward to virtual machines Citation: Bromium sets up business net around malware (Update) (2012, September 19) retrieved 18 August 2019 from https://phys.org/news/2012-09-bromium-net-business-malware.html Bromium’s software product is called vSentry, and the technology approach rests on a micro-virtual machine—an isolated environment— that protects the underlying operating system and whatever content is stored on the machine from malware. The microVM isolates attacks, trapping malware and analyzing it so that IT staff can explore it further without interruption to employee computer users. According to its designers, a PC user at a company would not be aware that it is installed. The machine tracks employee use of the web. All the data from a website visit is contained. vSentry places each document into this virtual machine. If someone clicks a bad link, the micro-VM will keep it until the IT administrator views and disposes of it. The virus cannot escape from the safety shield of this environment to enter the actual computer. The company’s target is the enterprise customer, because that is where the opportunity lies for the virtual machine approach. vSentry is licensed per-user, enterprise wide, and priced according to volume. Security teams may have ample expertise but they cannot actively block attacks they never saw before. The vSentry appeal is not just that employees can be free to work without fear of bringing up viruses, but that the information captured for the dashboard provides information on the malware attempts. The company says that the information via vSentry’s “Live Attack Visualization and Analysis” (LAVA) feature delivers information about the attack’s origin, techniques, and targets.Rather than reducing the need for a security team, the product gives them more power to work on security protection for the business with better success. Bromium says its LAVA delivers high malware detection rates. Micro-VM analysis can look at forms of attack that include rootkits and bootkits and generate signatures for otherwise undetectable attacks. The idea is that an enterprise security team can in turn update security mechanisms or fortify defenses of specific attack targets. The drawback is that the product only works on Windows. Platform requirements in full are given as Intel i3, i5, i7 processor; 4 GB RAM; Windows 7 64-bit. It does not run on Macs and it does not run on ARM architectures.center_img More information: Credit: Bromium This document is subject to copyright.

Nonetheless, the company co-founders have told reporters that in time wider support is in the works including versions for Windows 8 and Mac OSX. This week’s product announcement had some sites voicing superlatives, implying the software can do a lot to mitigate the business angst and costs of computer malware.last_img

Pixars CoFounders Heard No 45 Times Before Steve Jobs Said Yes

first_img Hear from Polar Explorers, ultra marathoners, authors, artists and a range of other unique personalities to better understand the traits that make excellence possible. With its stunning visuals and storytelling to boot, Disney’s Pixar has been captivating global audiences for decades, helping to transform the way people look at animated feature films. Best known for its use of computer-generated imagery (CGI), Pixar has 17 animated feature films on its record, 12 of which made the list of the 50 highest-grossing animated films of all time. (Disney has even released a film showing that all the Pixar films are connected.)Pixar knows a thing or two about how to tell a story and now anyone can learn how to capture people’s imagination with a scintillating story. In an initiative called “Pixar in a Box,” which is sponsored by Disney, Pixar has teamed up with the Khan Academy to offer free online classes to anyone with an internet connection and a passion for storytelling.Related: What Tech Entrepreneurs Can Learn From the Startup That Beat GoogleOver the years, Pixar has given audiences the likes of the Toy Story trilogy, Monsters, Inc., Finding Nemo, The Incredibles, Ratatouille and Finding Dory. If its back catalogue isn’t impressive enough, Pixar has now given its fans what is arguably its most sacred creation of all — the secret of how to tell tales that make people tick.I interviewed Alvy Ray Smith, one of the company’s co-founders, and he told me about learning animation from a $1.50 “how-to” book, the role that “Moore’s Law” played in guiding him to success with Pixar, his three golden rules of recruitment and working with the late Steve Jobs.In addition to pursuing computer graphics at the New York Institute of Technology (NYIT), you taught yourself the basics of animation using a $1.50 “how-to” book written by the late Preston Blair, a character animator best known for his work at Disney and Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer (MGM). Where did you get your business savvy from?Alvy Ray Smith: My co-founder, Edwin Catmull, and I were the academic type. We were computer nerds with PhDs and learned business by the seat of our pants. When George Lucas — one of our patrons — lost half his fortune in a divorce, we were forced to start a company to preserve our group. Our first move was to buy four “how-to-start-a-business” books. I also called a former colleague at NYIT, Jim Clark, founder of Silicon Graphics (and later, Netscape) and asked him how to do business. He said, “It’s not hard, Alvy. It’ll take you about a year to learn the basics.” That was the extent of our “formal” training. Then, we went through an intense learning process made necessary by financing Pixar. Thirty-five venture capitalists and 10 large corporations turned us down, but we got lots of training presenting the company and “talking the talk.”Related: High-Tech Startups Need to Ditch the ‘Engineers Rule’ MentalityDescribe the impact that Gordon E. Moore — the founder of Intel — had on your business philosophy.In my own words, “Moore’s Law” says, “Everything good about computers gets better by a factor of 10 every five years.” So, in 2015, computers were 10 billion times better than they were in 1965. Catmull and I used this “Law” at several crucial points, including the formation of Pixar. In the final year at Lucasfilm, I ran the numbers for a contract with a Japanese company ready to produce the first digital movie. To my horror, I discovered that computers hadn’t arrived yet — by a factor of 10. I had to back out of the deal. Hence, we knew that Pixar couldn’t make movies for another five years. At the end of those five fraught years — right on Moore’s Law schedule — Disney stepped forward to finance Toy Story, the first digital movie.What positives did you take away from your association with the late Steve Jobs, who was the main investor in Pixar?Jobs financed us when 45 other organizations had said “no.” He didn’t create or run Pixar, but he did capitalize us as a manufacturing company for those first five years. We ran out of money several times, and Jobs would always write us another check in exchange for equity. His greatest business move was to take Pixar public on the strength of great critical previews of Toy Story.Related: 3 Mistakes (Nearly) Every Tech Startup Makes — and How to Avoid ThemWhat business principles did you apply when you co-founded Pixar that could be applied by a founder of a startup today?When hiring people, live by three rules — hire smarter than yourself, hire the best and give them their space. It’s like being a good parent. You can’t produce creativity, but you can identify it, nourish it and let it grow. Catmull and I aren’t good entrepreneurial models because we failed for five years, staying alive only because of one of our patrons, Steve Jobs. We weren’t successful until we were executing a business that we had truly prepared for, which was making animated movies. What we did have going for us was a clear and clean vision — that is, to make the first digital movie. It was not to make a financially successful company. Pixar’s example taught us that entrepreneurs aren’t always born (sometimes, they’re made), failure isn’t always final (sometimes, it’s just feedback) and recruitment works best by a “rule of three.” 5 min read Listen Now Opinions expressed by Entrepreneur contributors are their own.
