Susan Lyne Out as MSLO CEO

first_img“While there is never a perfect time to depart,” she added, “the company is on sound footing and we expect the transition to be very smooth.”Lyne, who was named CEO in 2004 shortly after Stewart began serving her sentence in an Alderson, West Virginia, women’s prison, will retain a title of director during the transition period.MSLO reported a 2 percent increase in revenue during the first quarter, with its advertising-supported broadcasting and businesses driving that growth. The publishing segment, however, was essentially flat.Overall revenue was $67.8 million, compared to $66.7 million for the first quarter of 2007. Publishing revenues in the first quarter increased slightly, to $40.8 million from $40.6 million in 2007.The company had a strong finish to 2007, posting double digit publishing and Internet revenue gains during the fourth quarter. Susan Lyne, the chief executive officer of Martha Stewart Living Omnimedia who steered the brand while its namesake served five months in jail for lying to federal investigators about the sale of ImClone stock, has stepped down, the company announced today.Wenda Harris Millard, current media president, and Robin Marino, merchandising CEO, were named co-CEOs, reporting to chairman Charles Koppelman.“Four years ago when the board asked me to take on this role, our principal goal was to rebuild the company and return it to profitability,” Lyne said in a statement. “We have done that.”last_img read more

Israels moon dream lives on with second lunar lander Beresheet 2

first_imgEnlarge ImageThe surface of the moon as seen by Beresheet moments before it crashed into the lunar surface. SpaceIL/IAI The ambitious Beresheet moon mission was spectacular and heartbreaking. Israeli nonprofit SpaceIL achieved the first moon orbit by a privately funded spacecraft, but a mysterious engine problem dashed its hopes of safely placing the lander on the moon last week. The crash didn’t end the dream.SpaceIL over the weekend announced plans for the Beresheet 2 mission with a statement from Morris Khan, the Israeli entrepreneur who put up millions toward financing the first lander.  The dream goes on!

Nathaniel wasn’t ready to guess as to when the new spacecraft might launch. “It will be a major project that will take major planning, coordination, and, last but not least, financing,” he said. The original Beresheet mission launched on a SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket in February. It carried a time capsule and cameras and planned to study the moon’s magnetic field. Beresheet left us with some haunting imagery, including a glimpse of the moon’s cratered surface. Beresheet 2 hopes to do much, much more. Khan cited the worldwide support, encouragement and excitement for the first mission, and said SpaceIL would build a new spacecraft and try again for a moon landing. “We are going to complete the mission,” he said.Beresheet team member Ben Nathaniel took to Reddit for a Q&A, but SpaceIL has not yet finished its evaluation of what went wrong with the lander and its main engine. “We are still investigating what exactly happened,” said Nathaniel.

Ageing can be natural stress reliever for women

first_imgWhen a woman enters midlife, she is more likely to feel less stressed and enjoy a high quality of life, a study has shown, challenging previously held notions that midlife is associated with higher stress and depression. Researchers from the University of Michigan found that perceived stress – a measure of confidence, control and ability to cope with life’s stressors — did indeed decrease for most women over a 15-year span.While some research suggests that midlife is a dissatisfying time for women, this study showed that women report feeling less stressed and enjoy a higher quality of life during this period. Also Read – Add new books to your shelf”Our perception of stress decreases as we age through the midlife – perhaps life itself is becoming less stressful, or maybe we’re finally feeling at the top of our game, or maybe things just don’t bother us the way they did,” said Elizabeth Hedgeman, a doctoral graduate at the University of Michigan.According to Hedgeman, this decrease in perceived stress could be both circumstantial and neurological causes – children have moved out, professional goals are being met, or women might have hit a sweet spot before the next life challenges arise, such as chronic health conditions or aging parents. Also Read – Over 2 hours screen time daily will make your kids impulsiveMoreover, even women with less education or more financial hardship reported less perceived stress over the midlife. The study, published in the journal Women’s Midlife Health, also found that menopausal status was not a factor, challenging the notion that menopause is associated with higher stress and depression.”Whatever the root reason, we’re reporting less perceived stress as we age through the midlife and menopause.”last_img read more

Tenants will have right to live in reconstructed buildings Mayor

first_imgKolkata: In a bid to prevent any mortality or grievous injury to tenants living in dangerous and dilapidated buildings in the city during the monsoon season, the Kolkata Municipal Corporation (KMC) will pull down these buildings guaranteeing the tenants that they will not be deprived of their right to live in them when it is newly constructed.In cases where the tenants or occupiers have no option to relocate, the KMC will construct temporary structures for their lodging at the same place and will then pull down the building. The chances of collapse of dangerous and dilapidated buildings in the city go up during the rainy season. When it rains, the rainwater is stored on the roof resulting in an increase in the weight of the building. The weak foundation is unable to bear the additional weight resulting in collapse and loss of lives. “I have ordered an immediate review of the dangerous and dilapidated buildings. I want assistance of the councillors and within a week, we will have a list of all such buildings from the Building department and the councillors so that action can be taken at the earliest. We will guarantee that a single tenant will not lose his/her right to live in the building when the owner takes up its construction,” Mayor Firhad Hakim said responding to a query from Congress councillor Prakash Upadhyay at the monthly meeting regarding the steps taken by the KMC to prevent any death or injury due to collapse of such buildings during monsoon. 22 people had died after portions of old buildings fell on them in 2017. The KMC will give the tenants a certificate in writing assuring them that they will give sanction to the house owner for reconstructing the building only when he mentions the space for lodging the tenants in that building. The tenants or occupants of a building hesitate to move out of a dangerous building when it is pulled down apprehending that they will lose their right to stay in the same building when the owner will reconstruct it. The KMC had passed the Kolkata Municipal Corporation (Amendment) Bill in the state Assembly in March 2017 that owners of dangerous and dilapidated buildings may apply to the KMC with rehabilitation package for the tenants. In such cases, the civic body gives clearance to pull down the old structure to make room for a new one with 100 percent additional FAR (Floor Area Ratio).last_img read more

First look at Samsungs sleek Galaxy Watch Active

first_imgIt was easy to miss amid all the foldable phone hype, but Samsung revealed its latest smartwatch Wednesday at its Unpacked event: the $199 Galaxy Watch Active.But just because it didn’t have much time in the spotlight doesn’t mean the Galaxy Watch Active  isn’t worth checking out. While Samsung’s prior smartwatches have tended to be massive, its latest wearable is much more subtle — and one I’m much more likely to want to actually wear.Meet the Galaxy Watch ActiveA followup to last year’s Galaxy Watch, the first thing you’ll notice about the Galaxy Watch Active is that it’s not nearly as bulky as the relatively massive Galaxy Watch. The Samsung Galaxy Watch Active is slim enough for smaller wrists.Image: karissa bell / mashableWith a 40mm case and no rotating bezel, it’s noticeably slimmer — a welcome change for those of us with smaller wrists (or, really, anyone who appreciates a lower profile watch).And at $199, the Galaxy Watch Active is a much more affordable option than the Galaxy Watch, which started at $375 last year. Samsung finally has a watch that looks good on small wrists.Image: karissa bell / mashableBy Karissa Bell2019-02-21 01:54:52 UTC It comes in four different colors: silver, black, sea green, and rose gold (it’s about time Samsung hopped on the rose gold train) and ships with multi-colored bands that are very similar to Apple’s sport bands for the Apple Watch.The bands are similar to Apple’s sport bands for Apple Watch.Image: karissa bell / mashableI only wore the Galaxy Watch Active for a few minutes, but I was impressed by how light it was. And it was at least as comfortable as any Apple Watch I’ve worn.Navigating apps without a rotating bezel.Image: karisa bell / mashableBesides the size, one of the biggest changes with the Galaxy Watch Active is that it doesn’t have a rotating bezel. Instead, you navigate the watch’s menus by swiping left or right. That rose gold.Image: karissa bell / mashableThere are also two side buttons that let you launch and close apps. It might take a little getting used to if you’re used to the rotating bezel UI, but I didn’t find it very complicated.You can wirelessly charge the Galaxy Watch Active with the S10.Image: karissa bell / mashableThe Galaxy Watch Active charges wirelessly. And, like Samsung’s newly-announced Galaxy Buds, you’re able to charge it with your phone if you have one of the new Galaxy S10 phones. This feature seemed a little finicky in my demos, but I could easily see how it’d be helpful to get a little bit of extra battery life if you’re in a pinch.Health and fitness firstLike its name suggests, the Galaxy Watch Active is meant to put health and fitness features front and center. Samsung’s health app.Image: karissa bell / mashableWhile the company hasn’t matched Apple’s advanced heart-rate monitoring features, Samsung has added a new blood pressure-monitoring feature via an app called My BP Lab. The app, which will be available in the U.S., UK, Australia, Singapore, Canada, and Germany. This wasn’t available to try out on the demo models I took a look at, but hopefully it will be ready when we’re able to do a full review.I did, however, get to briefly try out Samsung’s guided breathing app, which is meant to help you relax through deep breathing, similar to Fitbit’s “relax” feature. Samsung’s guided breathing app for the Galaxy Watch Active.Image: karissa bell / mashableOn the fitness side, the Galaxy Watch Active has the ability to automatically track certain types of workouts, along with usual step-counting and third-party exercise apps. We’ll have more on all of this when we’re able to do a full review, but the Galaxy Watch Active manages to squeeze a lot into a pretty compelling package.While you won’t get the fancier features of Samsung’s larger (and pricier) watches, the Galaxy Watch Active is an approachable smartwatch that will appeal to fitness enthusiasts. The Samsung Galaxy Watch Active has two side buttons instead of a rotating bezel.Image: karissa bell / mashable The back of the Galaxy Watch Active.Image: Karissa bell / mashablelast_img read more


Killer robots Experts warn of third revolution in warfare

first_imgMore than 100 leading robotics experts are urging the United Nations to take action in order to prevent the development of “Killer robots”.In a letter to the organisation, artificial intelligence leaders, including billionaire Elon Musk, warn of “a third revolution in warfare”.The letter says “Lethal autonomous” technology is a “Pandora’s box”, adding that time is of the essence.The 116 experts are calling for a ban on the use of AI in managing weaponry.“These can be weapons of terror, weapons that despots and terrorists use against innocent populations, and weapons hacked to behave in undesirable ways,” it adds.There is an urgent tone to the message from the technology leaders, who warn that “We do not have long to act”.Experts are calling for what they describe as “Morally wrong” technology to be added to the list of weapons banned under the UN Convention on Certain Conventional Weapons.Along with Tesla co-founder and chief executive Mr Musk, the technology leaders include Mustafa Suleyman, Google’s DeepMind co-founder.A potential ban on the development of “Killer robot” technology has previously been discussed by UN committees.In 2015, more than 1,000 tech experts, scientists and researchers wrote a letter warning about the dangers of autonomous weaponry.A killer robot is a fully autonomous weapon that can select and engage targets without human intervention.Those in favour of killer robots believe the current laws of war may be sufficient to address any problems that might emerge if they are ever deployed, arguing that a moratorium, not an outright ban, should be called if this is not the case.Sourcelast_img read more

When a luxury hotel partners with a health retreat

first_imgWhen a luxury hotel partners with a health retreat both parties benefit – as do consumers. In the Philippines, for some years now, The Peninsula Manila has had an extremely happy relationship with The Farm at San Benito, two hours away up in lush and verdant hilltop farmland (a German set up the retreat, which is now owned by hotelier and entrepreneur Binod Chaudhary from Nepal and Naresh Khattar from Delhi). It is run by Rouel Guanzon, a Filipino-Canadian who was diverted to hospitality from his original career wish to fly. He was heading marketing at The Peninsula Manila before coming here, which he says was a natural transition. Chefs from the two establishments train together, and guests staying at the Manila hotel not surprisingly love to head to ‘the countryside’ for health and wellness.My driver opened the window as we climbed the last hill before reaching The Farm. “Fresh air,” he said with a smile. I was in Villa 30, in a row of detached pool villas called Narra, after one of the local woods. I had a six-metre pool, deep enough for proper swimming, with so much jungle undergrowth I had total privacy. The villa, with a big overhanging roof over the terrace, had excellent air-conditioning, lighting and connectivity, and the bed was amazingly comfortable – I slept like a log. Perhaps because of the air and the hour-long hike I had taken round the estate and down past the local village. There are masses of activities planned every day.I also had a somewhat soporific 2.5-hour massage journey, plus an hour-long facial that turned out to be an assessment of breathing and various other functions by a doctor specialising in aromatherapy. Yes, you come here to be assessed and pampered – many come to lose weight (there is alcohol, but the food is strictly vegan, no meat, fish, cheese or eggs and ‘butter’ is a coconut oil paste). I was actually really impressed by the food, especially by the main meals. At lunch I had a wheatgrass antioxidant shot, 21 calories; a grilled vegetable salad, 112 calories; a grilled tofu steak with steak sauce on the side, 216 calories.
