The source added a deal could also be struck between a private equity vehicle and media giant News Corp if AOL talks break down.Discussions with AOL are said to have commenced about two weeks ago and intensified in recent days, but Yahoo has not yet been approached.A bid is understood to rely on Yahoo selling its prized Asian assets, including a 40 per cent stake in China’s Alibaba Group and 34.5 per cent of Yahoo Japan. Yahoo shares rose 9.5 per cent on the speculation.Yahoo became a potential target after failing to revive its sales. It has been overshadowed by Google and its market value is now little more than a tenth of its rival at $20.56bn (£12.83bn).Analyst Ian Maude of Enders Analysis told City A.M.: “This could give AOL and Yahoo the scale to compete with the big industry players. It would also have obvious synergistic advantages, with both firms offering similar email, messaging and content services.”Maude added: “But crucially, there seems to be little strategic advantage. It gives no direct route into the key mobile market, which is where the real battleground lies.”Speculation of private equity interest in Yahoo, which is struggling to stem an exodus of senior executives to rivals, has been growing in recent months.Its controversial chief executive Carol Bartz has come under particular fire and would almost certainly be replaced should a deal be struck.Yahoo posted nearly flat second quarter revenue yesterday after taking a hit from the fall off in web advertising spend. It said its revenue in the three months to 30 June was $1.6bn, compared with $1.57bn in the same quarter last year, disappointing the market center_img Share Thursday 14 October 2010 9:50 pm whatsapp Tags: NULLlast_img read more

Friday Funnies – What the hell is going on?!

first_imgFriday Feb 8, 2008 Friday Funnies – What the hell is going on?! In news of the bizarre from 2005, this was one of the strangest tries you’ll see for a long long time, and probably the easiest too for flanker Brent Wilson.The two NPC sides, Otago and North Harbour, both hear a ‘Phantom Whistle’ that could only have been someone in the crowd having a bit of fun. Everyone stops, except for Wilson who casually strolls over the line, also looking a bit confused.You can even see the number eight of Harbour turning around in disgust after making the pass, thinking the ref had called it forward or something.All in all, confusion reigned, and ‘What the hell is going on’ is probably still a question that the players involved will be asking themselves.

Operating in more than 60 countries, the campaign encourages the public to make a small donation to a charity that is important to them, and then to tell five friends, and ask those friends each to tell five more. This can be in person or via social media.Doug Frye, President and CEO of Colliers International, said: “I think of it as a giving tree. One donation becomes five, five become 25 and 25 can become hundreds. And you can track your giving tree and your friends’ giving trees on the Everyone Gives website.”He added: “This isn’t another one-off charity donation; this is about enabling individuals to engage their personal connections to give more to the charities they are passionate about. So please post, tweet, email and ask the people in your network to support your favourite cause or pick a charity of their own.”Over 700 charities have already registered with Everyone Gives. In the UK these include Cancer Research UK, Asthma UK, The Red Cross and Scope.According to EveryoneGives, “100% of each donation will go directly to the charity a participant selects”.The campaign is expected to run annually.How to get involved with Everyone GivesCharities not currently listed on the site can be proposed via [email protected] Advertisement About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur.

Anti-masking laws collude with white supremacy

first_imgWorkers World contingent arrives at Emancipation Park, Charlottesville, N.C.The world is witnessing righteous resistance against fascist and white supremacist mobilizations across the United States: in Charlottesville, Va.; Berkeley, Calif.; Durham, N.C.; Boston and many other cities.As the left unites to fight back against emboldened racist and fascist elements, the state is focusing its energy on repressing the movement against white supremacy. An emerging tactic that has been employed in Charlottesville, Durham and New York City is the use of antiquated “anti-masking” laws to criminalize left forces at protests.Anti-masking laws were created during the Civil Rights era to prevent the Ku Klux Klan from donning their hoods in order to terrorize communities in anonymity. These laws, which were rarely enforced during the Civil Rights era, did nothing to prevent the KKK and other white supremacists from concealing their identities and unleashing violence across the U.S.Today, the state has leveraged these laws to target and criminalize protesters, while continuing to allow white supremacists to hide their identities and torment whole communities.On Aug. 12, members and friends of Workers World Party stood side by side with masked and unmasked leftists in Charlottesville as we confronted armed white supremacists. In preparation for our mobilization, we briefed everyone on the anti-masking law in Virginia, which has made masking a felony offense since 1950. We warned that during an anti-Klan mobilization in Charlottesville on July 8, four anti-racist activists were charged with a felony for masking after being assaulted by the police with noxious tear gas and pepper spray.We also carried items to cover ourselves in the event of similar state repression on Aug 12. Many of us utilized masks that day after being tear gassed by white supremacists, police and army reserves.None of the white supremacists were arrested for donning masks or hoods while terrorizing Charlottesville.In North Carolina, where masking has been a criminal offense since 1953, the state has targeted protesters at peaceful demonstrations by identifying people who were supposedly masked and arresting them on site and through video surveillance.We must expose the state as a champion of white supremacy, as evidenced through its selective enforcement of anti-masking laws. As the state ramps up its efforts to quash the left’s united fightback against fascism and racism, we must also support those who are arrested for violating anti-masking laws while resisting white supremacy.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more
