Verizon media chief stepping down after Yahoo reveal

first_img Verizon Previous ArticleMobile wallet providers must prepare for hack attacksNext ArticleGlobe Telecom pushing subs to use LTE network Verizon EVP and president of Global Media Marni Walden will step down from her post at the end of this year.Walden is due to move into a strategic advisor role as of December 31 and will leave the company altogether in February 2018.Verizon completed its acquisition of Yahoo earlier this year: the company was combined with Verizon’s previously acquired AOL assets to form Oath. Appointed head of media and telematics in March, Walden was set to oversee the integration and scaling of Yahoo and AOL’s technologies at Oath.Yahoo troublesNews of Walden’s departure follows a reveal from Verizon earlier this week that a previously disclosed 2013 data breach at Yahoo was much larger than originally thought. Rather than the 1 billion accounts cited at the time, Oath indicated all 3 billion Yahoo accounts were compromised in the hack.After the breach was first announced in late 2016, Walden was one of a few key figures who continued to advocate for following through on the Yahoo deal. At a conference organised by The Wall Street Journal in October 2016, Walden maintained the rationale for the deal – massively expanding Verizon’s audience – still made sense. She reiterated the position at another investor conference in January, despite revelations not one, but two data breaches had occurred at Yahoo.However, Walden wasn’t alone in her view. In comments made at the Internet Association’s Virtuous Circle conference in October 2016, Verizon CEO Lowell McAdam told attendees he was “not that shocked” by the data breach revelations and stated “the industrial logic of doing this merger still makes a lot of sense”.In a statement issued on Wednesday (4 October), McAdam praised Walden.“Marni helped build our wireless business, starting as a sales representative in a store, and grew into an inspirational leader and role model for so many at Verizon,” McAdam said: “She has most recently spearheaded Verizon’s entry into global digital media and telematics and will leave us in a strong competitive position.”Following Walden’s exit Tim Armstrong, CEO of Verizon’s media brand Oath, will report directly to McAdam. The telematics organisation will report to John Stratton, EVP and president of Global Operations.

Molex Unveils Wi-Fi Flexible Antenna Series for Easy Integration into Compact Devices

first_imgMolex has introduced flexible antennas for Wi-Fi,  that are designed for fast and easy integration into wireless devices with minimal implementation cost. The new 206994-series side-fed cable-flexible antenna enables high-performance RF transmission for the most demanding Wi-Fi applications, including those with space constraints.The design constraints imposed by today’s miniaturized devices are a huge challenge, but it’s not simply a question of board and casing real estate. These days a smartphones and tablets can pack several radios, while using sophisticated techniques such as frequency hopping, spread-spectrum and OFDM modulation. Meanwhile the 2.4 and 5.0-GHz unlicensed bands are increasingly crowded. The demand for expertly designed and precision-manufactured antennas has never been greater.When center-fed cable antennas do not address the needs of particular applications, side-fed cable antenna designs are required and, to answer market demand, Molex has developed two side-fed cable antenna versions: the 206994-series monopole and the 204281-series dipole-style flexible antennas. The 206994-series monopole addresses the requirements of small-size devices, while the 204281-series dipole supports applications that need fully balanced transmission and ground-plane independence regardless of cable length.The 206994-series antenna is a highly compact Wi-Fi flexible antenna with high RF performance of >70% radiation efficiency that measures only 15.0 mm x 6.0 mm.Click here to view more about Molex antennas.last_img read more

Krul Holland eventually dispatch brave Costa Rica after shoot-out

first_img While the Dutch enjoyed the majority of the possession, they couldn’t find a way past the Levante stopper, whose stock continued its rapid ascent. Penalties: Borges, Gonzalez, Bolanos (all scored), Ruiz, Umana (both saved) As has so often been the case during Costa Rica’s World Cup, it had been their keeper, Keylor Navas, who had starred in the first half. They did seem to neuter Holland’s threat in the second half though – at least until the final 10 minutes. A ball across the six-yard box somehow missed three Holland players, but wound up at Van Persie’s feet and he gleefully diverted it towards the goal. Navas was nowhere to be seen and it seemed they would finally have the goal they sought, but somehow Yeltsin Tejeda appeared and diverted the ball onto the bar. Match facts And while the Dutch players did their jobs by scoring four out of four from 12-yards, Krul rendered Van Gaal a genius by saving from Bryan Ruiz and Michael Umana to keep his country’s World Cup dream alive. Less than 10 minutes later he was again foiling the Oranje. Sam Marsden CEST Although less spectacularly than previously, Navas was on hand to beat away Depay’s near post effort. In fact, as the clock ticked towards penalties and the match soared in excitement levels, it was Cillessen, not Navas, making a game-saving stop from Marcos Urena. Up the other end, Sneijdar thumped the woodwork again, but somehow the match ended goalless and to the backdrop of Van Gaal replacing Cillessen with Newcastle United keeper Krul purely for the purposes of spot kicks. The first big chance fell to Robin van Persie. Following good work from Dirk Kuyt, Memphis Depay set up the Manchester United striker but Navas made a smart save before easily collecting Wesley Sneijder’s rebound. It remains a mystery how the Dutch didn’t then nick it in stoppage-time. The Ticos were struggling to create anything. Bruno Martins Indi went into the back of Joel Campbell in the box, but the referee wasn’t up for giving a spot kick.  Upd. at 01:30 What a decision that turned out to be. Another Sneijder free-kick came close, clipping the post, while Van Persie couldn’t connect with a fantastic chance at the far post. And while the Dutch still applied pressure in extra-time, there was almost an acceptance that the ball was not going to go in for them. Booked: Martins Indi, Huntelaar. Still the Dutch came, but still the Costa Rican keeper stood in their way. Next to try their luck was Sneijder, sailing a free-kick towards the top corner from 25-yards. But there was Navas and his outstretched hand to beat the ball away. Booked: Diaz, Umana, Gonzalez, Acosta. Penalties: Van Persie, Robben, Sneijder, Kuyt (all scored) 06/07/2014 Holland: Cillessen (Krul 120); De Vrij, Vlaar, Martins Indi (Huntelaar 105), Depay (Lens 76), Wijnaldum, Blind, Kuyt, Sneijder, Van Persie, Robben. Costa Rica: Navas; Gamboa (Myrie 79), Acosta, Diaz, Gonzalez, Ruiz, Borges, Tejeda (Cubero 97), Bolanos, Campbell (Urena 66), Umana. Goalkeeper Tim Krul saved two penalties after coming off the bench in the dying stages of extra-time to send Holland into a semi-final clash with Argentina. With seconds remaining before spot kicks, Louis van Gaal took the bold decision to replace his goalkeeper Jasper Cillessen with Krul. Referee: Ravshan Irmatov (Uzbekistan)last_img read more

France earn their place in the Last 16 while Peru can already prepare their flight home

first_img Francia pone las sonrisas y Perú las lágrimas France brought on Dembele with the final 20 minutes and he looked lively but still short of confidence. He had an opportunity to put the game to bed but couldn’t keep his effort on target. In the end it didn’t matter as Peru’s inability to create genuine chances meant France only need the solitary goal to claim victory. Andrew Gaffney Central de Ekaterimburgo. 35.000 espectadores. Perú MATCH FACTS Primera fase del Mundial – Grupo C France became the third side to qualify for the Round of 16 after notching their second win in as many matches as they beat plucky Peru 1-0 in Group C. Upd. at 20:20 CEST A place in the last sixteen awaits France while Peru’s players can start planning their summer holidays as the World Cup adventure is over for them. Lloris; Pavard, Varane, Umtiti, Lucas Hernandez; Kanté, Matuidi; Mbappé (Dembélé, 74′), Pogba (Nzonzi, 88′), Griezmann (Fekir, 79′); y Giroud. Estadio PER IN SPORT.ES 1-0 Gallese; Advíncula, Ramos, Rodríguez (Santamaría, 46′), Trauco; Aquino, Yutún (Farfán, 46′); Carrillo, Cueva (Ruidíaz, 81′), Flores; y Guerrero. Peru upped the tempo in the second half as they desperately searched for the equaliser but even when they did break through, Hugo Lloris was there to clean up. To bring up the comparison with Morocco again, Peru lacked a cutting edge in the final third which we have seen is making the difference in these tight encounters. Cristiano for Portugal, Cheryshev for Russia and Kane for England are just some examples of how a bit of quality in attack goes a long way at this level, despite how nicely you can knock the ball around. The opening period was largely controlled by France and it came as no surprise when Kylian Mbappe, who has started this tournament in good spirits after his impressive season at PSG, got off the mark 10 minutes before half time. Giroud was played in behind by Paul Pogba and his effort ricocheted off the defender and fell kindly to Mbappe, a yard out, to tap home and give France the lead. Mbappe became France’s youngest goalscorer in World Cup history. Peru knew they needed to win in order to keep their slim World Cup hopes alive and there was a first start for Paolo Guerrero as they looked to do that. The South Americans have something of a cult following due to their exciting style of football but much like Morocco, it hasn’t translated to positive results out on the pitch. 21/06/2018 FRA The biggest surprise in France’s starting lineup was the omission of Barcelona’s Ousmane Dembele. Olivier Giroud was instead preferred to lead the line with Antoine Griezmann sitting just behind him, a role he’s used to at Atletico Madrid. Mohammed Abdullah Hassan (Estados Árabes Unidos).
