Ziff Davis Media Cancels Tech Event

first_imgZiff Davis Media has cancelled this year’s DigitalLife Expo, an annual technology trade show it produces in partnership with PC Magazine. The event had been scheduled for September 25 to 28 in New York.Paul O’Reilly, vice president of Ziff’s event marketing group, attributed the decision to poor economic conditions. “We couldn’t get the event to the size and scale of previous years,” O’Reilly told FOLIO:. “We just weren’t confident that we could do the brand justice.”Ziff pulled the plug on the event after speaking with its major sponsors. “We were upfront and open about that, especially with sponsors and exhibitors,” O’Reilly said. “After several discussions, everyone felt that they wanted to pass on a smaller event this year and focus on building the show up again next year.” Ziff’s DigitalLife Expo launched in 2004 and attracted 24,000 attendees. In 2006, according to O’Reilly, the event had grown to 50,000 attendees.Ziff Davis Media, which also publishes Electronic Gaming magazine and ExtremeTech.com, filed for bankruptcy protection in March as part of a debt restructuring plan. In June, the publisher announced that a New York court confirmed its reorganization plan, and that it expected to emerge from bankruptcy protection this summer.O’Reilly says Ziff is hoping to work with its sponsors to produce the DigitalLife Expo next fall. “Nothing is certain, yet, but we hope to bring it back in 2009. Also, we’re looking at the same timeframe, which is great for launching new products and games.”last_img read more

No barrier to probe atrocities against Rohingyas ICC team

first_imgRohingya refugee carries an elderly man at the Palongkhali refugee camp near Cox`s Bazar. Reuters file photoThe Office of the Prosecutor, International Criminal Court (ICC) does not see any barrier in carrying out “preliminary examination” and subsequent investigation into alleged atrocities committed against Rohingyas by the Myanmar military though Myanmar is not a State Party to the Rome Statute, reports UNB.”The ICC process is not about Myanmar, it’s not about Myanmar as a state. It’s about individual’s criminal responsibility,” ICC’s director of Jurisdiction, Complementarity and Cooperation Division Phakiso Mochochoko told reporters at a city hotel on Monday evening.The delegation from the Office of the Prosecutor of the International Criminal Court (ICC) is set to leave Dhaka on Tuesday.Explaining further about individual criminal responsibility, he said it is all about the people who are responsible, who have given instructions, who have commanded and the people who did all other things and facilitated to commit these alleged crimes.Mochochoko said it will not in any way be a hindrance despite the fact that Myanmar is not a State Party and will not cooperate with the Office of the Prosecutor into this.Expecting cooperation from everyone, he said Myanmar’s noncooperation might present a little bit of challenge for them in terms of investigation but there is no barrier to go ahead without cooperation from Myanmar.Mochochoko said this is not the first time they engaged in this kind of process but they had got many other situations where they had been engaged. “Almost all of them have come to fruition – in one way or another.”He said the independent and impartial preliminary examination of the situation in Bangladesh/Myanmar is going on and will follow its course.”A preliminary examination is not an investigation, but an assessment of the Rome Statute criteria to decide whether an investigation into the situation at hand is warranted,” he said.Therefore, during their Bangladesh mission that ended on Monday, he said the delegation did not collect any evidence or perform any other investigative activities as it is the standard practice of the Office.Meanwhile, they had interactions with relevant ministers and meetings with representatives of international organisations, and visited Rohingya camps.Earlier, the ICC wanted to know Bangladesh’s opinion on whether The Hague-based court has the jurisdiction to run a case on atrocities against Rohingyas.The pretrial chamber of the ICC sent a letter to Bangladesh in this regard on 7 May 2018 seeking opinion on three specific matters by June 11, either publicly or confidentially.Bangladesh responded to the request of the International Criminal Court (ICC) on Rohingya issue, as the country is seeking a “sustainable solution” to the crisis.last_img
