QA Hearst Digitals Mike Smith

first_imgSee Also: Video: Hearst Digital Media’s Whitmore and Welker on the Group’s Next Steps There are literally dozens of best-of-breed technology solutions that Hearst employs to support its clients and agencies. These are very progressive technology solutions that power the various ad products that the sales team sells—digital ad products, specifically. Another classification would be client service and order fulfillment. There’s a very elaborate workflow system here that serves sales development all the way through the deal cycle—signing contracts for ad campaign schedules and then the delivery with all the specific targetings  that the client purchases—to finance.Lastly, I’ll mention our vendor solution that is owned and operated by Hearst called Core Audience. In ad tech, it’s referred to as a DMP—data management platform—and it’s a big part of the ad tech infrastructure here at Hearst.Folio: Its sounds like there are a couple roles you’ll be fulfilling here.Smith: The direct sales efforts are led by several folks at Hearst who run sales teams here. My job, just to be clear, is to support them with great service and also really the technology solutions. It’s a supportive role in relation to the direct selling. Where I have a more oversight role is the programmatic selling of inventory. When we auction inventory to programmatic buyers, that for me is more of an oversight role. Folio: Where do you see the biggest opportunities in the short term? Smith: Far and away the biggest opportunity is with the direct sales team, helping them serve our clients and agencies in ever increasingly innovative ways. We have a very progressive sales team that has a very comprehensive portfolio of forward-thinking products, including the native ad solutions. Where I hope to add value is to continue to add to that process of innovation. But, direct ad sales is the biggest opportunity.  Programmatically, Hearst is way ahead of the curve with what they’ve done for their clients. Troy Young, hired in May to the new position of president of Hearst Magazines Digital, has made some of his first moves in organizing a management team for the division. In addition to promoting Mike Dushane to vice president, product development, Mike Smith was just hired as vice president, revenue platforms and operations. Smith arrives from Forbes, where he was president of Forbes.com and chief digital officer of Forbes Media. Here, Folio: checks in with Smith to see what his first priorities are for building out the platform that supports the group’s digital revenue-generating efforts. Folio: Describe what you’ll be doing, particularly with the ‘revenue platforms.’Mike Smith: I’ll be supporting the direct sales efforts with a staff of folks that provide service and support to Hearst’s advertisers and ad agencies along with technologies that Hearst has deployed to support our direct business.

AL victory celebration to hide moral defeat says BNP

first_imgMirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir. File photoThe Bangladesh Nationalist Party (BNP) on Saturday alleged that the ruling Awami League is celebrating its victory in the 11th parliamentary elections to divert people’s attention from “vote rigging”, reports UNB.”They (AL) are celebrating the victory to hide the moral defeat they suffered in the election as well as to divert people’s attention to a different direction from it,” said BNP secretary general Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir.Pointing at the Awami League grand rally at Suhrawardy Udyan in the capital city, the principal opposition party further said the Awami League is celebrating such a victory which they got through a massive vote robbery.”Awami League suffered a serious defeat on 30 December as they’ve got isolated from the people,” he said.Fakhrul came up with the remarks while talking to newsmen after placing a wreath at their party founder Ziaur Rahman’s grave in the city, observing his 83rd birth anniversary.Fakhrul alleged that the Awami League has little respect for democracy though they often talk about democracy.He also said the Awami League had established one-party rule ‘BAKSAL’ in 1975 banning all the political parties and snatching people’s freedom of expression as the party does not believe in democracy.The BNP leader further said their party founder Ziaur Rahman restored multi-party democracy and people’s freedom of expression in the country.”On the birthday of the party founding president, we’re vowing afresh to free democracy and our chairperson Kahleda Zia from jail and bring back home our acting chairman Tarique Rahman and re-establish democracy in the country,” he said. No rift in Oikya Front Although different media are running stories on ‘conflicts’ among Oiky Front leaders, there is no rift in their alliance, claimed the BNP senior leader.”Jatiya Oikya Front and the 20-party are united. We believe the government now in power must be defeated by people,” Fakhrul said.Also, there is no misunderstanding among senior leaders of the BNP, Fakhrul claimed adding “The BNP is as united as it was in the past.”Earlier, leaders and activists of the BNP paid homage to its founder Ziaur Rahman on the occasion of his 83rd birth anniversary.The BNP leaders and activists, led by its secretary general Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir, placed wreaths at Zia’s Sher-e-Banglanagar grave around 10:00am.Later, they offered fateha following a special munazat seeking salvation of Zia’s departed soul.last_img read more

ICANN calls for DNSSEC across unsecured domain names amidst increasing malicious activity

first_imgLast week, the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) decided to call for the full deployment of the Domain Name System Security Extensions (DNSSEC) across all unsecured domain names. ICANN took this decision because of the increasing reports of malicious activity targeting the DNS infrastructure. According to ICANN, there is an ongoing and significant risk to key parts of the Domain Name System (DNS) infrastructure. The DNS that converts numerical internet addresses to domain names, has been the victim of various attacks by the use of different methodologies. Last month security company FireEye revealed that hackers associated with Iran were hijacking DNS records, by rerouting users from a legitimate web address to a malicious server in order to steal passwords. This “DNSpionage” campaign, was targeting governments in the United Arab Emirates and Lebanon. The Homeland Security’s Cybersecurity Infrastructure Security Agency had warned that U.S. agencies were also under attack. In its first emergency order amid a government shutdown, the agency ordered federal agencies to take action against DNS tampering. David Conrad, ICANN’s chief technology officer told the AFP news agency that the hackers are “going after the Internet infrastructure itself.” ICANN is urging domain owners for deploying DNSSEC, which is a more secure version of DNS and is difficult to manipulate. DNSSEC cryptographically signs data which makes it more difficult to be spoofed. Some of the attacks target the DNS where the addresses of intended servers are changed with addresses of machines controlled by the attackers. This type of attack that targets the DNS only works when DNSSEC is not in use. ICANN also reaffirms its commitment towards engaging in collaborative efforts for ensuring the security, stability, and resiliency of the internet’s global identifier systems. This month, ICANN offered a checklist of recommended security precautions for members of the domain name industry, registries, registrars, resellers, and related others, to proactively take steps to protect their systems. ICANN aims to assure that internet users reach their desired online destination by preventing “man in the middle” attacks where a user is unknowingly re-directed to a potentially malicious site. Few users have previously been a victim of DNS hijacking and think that this move won’t help them out. One user commented on HackerNews, “This is nonsense, and possibly crossing the border from ignorant nonsense to malicious nonsense.” Another user said, “There is in fact very little evidence that we “need” the authentication provided by DNSSEC.” Few others think that this might work as a good solution. A comment reads, “DNSSEC is quite famously a solution in search of a problem.” To know more about this news, check out ICANN’s official post.

Will Captain Paul Watson be extradited

first_imgConservationist arrested in Germany on charges from Costa Rica From the print editionA German court on Friday granted bail to marine conservationist Paul Watson German while authorities decide whether he can be extradited. Watson was in a German jail cell awaiting extradition orders to face charges in Costa Rica of attempted shipwrecking and damage to property. If convicted, he could face up to 15 years in prison.The case has drawn international attention and outraged environmental groups in Costa Rica and abroad, who say the country is demonstrating a double standard on protecting marine resources – particularly the widespread practice of shark finning – at the same time it is selling the image of being a world leader in conservation.German police arrested Watson, the 61-year-old founder of marine conservation group Sea Shepherd, at the Frankfurt airport on Sunday, following a Costa Rican arrest warrant issued by the Prosecutor’s Office last October. A German court on Monday ordered Watson to remain in custody pending the outcome of the extradition process, which is handled by Costa Rican and German foreign ministries.A spokesman for Costa Rica’s Foreign Ministry did not respond to questions from The Tico Times by press time.“My client is shocked,” Watson’s attorney, Oliver Wallasch, said following the arrest.The case stems from an incident on April 22, 2002, when Capt. Watson and a crew aboard the Ocean Warrior (later renamed the Farley Mowat) were en route to Costa Rica to sign an agreement with the Costa Rican government to protect and patrol Cocos Island, a treasured protected marine area some 500 kilometers off the Pacific mainland, to counter widespread illegal fishing in the area.Some 230 kilometers off the coast of Guatemala, the Ocean Warrior came upon Costa Rican fishing vessel Varadero I, owned by Franklin Martínez of Puntarenas, on the central Pacific coast. What happened next has been heatedly debated by Watson and his crew, and Martínez and the eight fishermen aboard the vessel that day.According to Sea Shepherd’s version, the Ocean Warrior caught the Varadero I’s crew illegally shark-fishing by dropping an 80-kilometer longline within Guatemala’s 320-kilometer “no take” zone. Watson ordered the vessel to cut its line and release its catch. Sea Shepherd said at the time the vessel’s line had hooked and “strangled” at least 17 sharks during the encounter.Watson’s crew filmed the incident with three video cameras, and used some of the footage in “Sharkwater,” a documentary about shark finning released later that year.“On order of the Guatemalan authorities, Sea Shepherd instructed the crew of the Varadero I to cease their shark finning activities and head back to port to be prosecuted,” the group said in a statement this week.It claimed that while escorting the Varadero I back to port, the tables were turned and a Guatemalan gunboat was dispatched to intercept the Sea Shepherd crew.“The crew of the Varadero accused the Sea Shepherds of trying to kill them, while the video evidence proves this to be a fallacy,” said the group, which was set up in 1977 to campaign against the slaughter of ocean wildlife.“To avoid the Guatemalan gunboat, Sea Shepherd then set sail for Costa Rica, where they uncovered even more illegal shark finning activities in the form of dried shark fins by the thousands on the roofs of industrial buildings,” the statement said.The Varadero I also set course for Costa Rica, pursued by Watson and his crew. When the two boats arrived in Costa Rican waters, local Coast Guard officials intercepted them, and Watson was detained on charges of attempted murder and attempted shipwrecking.The Varadero I crew said the boat had engine trouble and accidentally drifted into Guatemalan waters, where the Ocean Warrior attacked them. They denied allegations that they had been illegally fishing for sharks, and two fishermen said they were injured during the alleged attack.Shortly after Watson’s arrest, prosecutors in Puntarenas dropped charges of attempted murder and said they would not pursue other charges of attempted shipwrecking and damage to property after viewing Sea Shepherd’s video footage of the incident. A prosecutor told Watson and his attorney at the time that there was no evidence of wrongdoing (TT, May 10, 2003).But prosecutors later reversed that decision and formally charged Watson with attempted shipwrecking and damage to property in early May 2002. In the month following the incident, four different prosecutors and three different judges handled the case. Environmental groups at the time claimed the case was orchestrated by the Puntarenas Fisherman’s Chamber to scuttle the Cocos Island patrol agreement, a charge both the chamber and then-Prosecutor Rodrigo Vásquez denied.Watson, whom Sea Shepherd members affectionately call “the captain” and who looks the part with a thick shock of white hair and beard, fled Costa Rica, and officials issued a warrant for his arrest, which went unenforced for nearly a decade.Wallasch said after Monday’s court hearing that his client must remain in custody until the Costa Rican extradition request is considered, adding that he did not know how long the process would take.Watson was passing through Frankfurt on his way to France to attend conferences when he was arrested, said a member of Sea Shepherd’s German branch, Olav Jost, who was with Watson during the first hours of his detention.“He was extremely surprised at being stopped since he has visited Germany and elsewhere in Europe in the past without any problems,” Jost said.Watson was being assisted while in custody by European Parliament members Daniel Cohn-Bendit and Jose Bove.“Our hope is that these two honorable gentlemen can set Captain Watson free before this nonsense goes any further,” Sea Shepherd said.According to Sea Shepherd, Costa Rica’s arrest warrant last October coincided with a civil case against the group by Japan’s Institute of Cetacean Research, Australian newspaper The Age reported.“It is no coincidence that the extradition request by Costa Rica was issued the same month as the Japanese lawsuit against Sea Shepherd was initiated,” Watson told The Age.The newspaper also reported that the German Ministry of Foreign Affairs has the authority to stop extradition procedures on political grounds. As of press time, German officials had not announced whether they would grant the extradition request.In Costa Rica, environmental groups also are pressuring the government to intervene to stop extradition from moving forward. But members of President Laura Chinchilla’s administration are distancing themselves from the case and treating it as a criminal matter to be handled by the courts.“We understand that Costa Rica’s image can be affected [by this case], as well as the work of environmental organizations, but this issue is out of Executive Branch’s control because of separation of powers, and we hope that nongovernmental organizations understand this,” Communications Minister Francisco Chacón told local online news agency crhoy.com.Environment Minister René Castro also told crhoy.com that “we cannot interfere with the work of other government branches.”That hasn’t stopped environmental groups from calling on Chinchilla and Castro to exercise special Executive powers.“We want Chinchilla to issue an official pardon,” said Randall Arauz, president of the Marine Turtle Restoration Program, a Costa Rica-based marine conservation group. “We should invite [Watson] to Costa Rica and have an official ‘we’re sorry’ event.”Poll Do you think Costa Rican authorities should drop the charges against Paul Watson? Yes. He was only trying to protect sharks because governments aren’t doing enough. No. He jeopardized fishermen’s lives so he must face the consequences.  No response.

Costa Rica approves legislation to regulate scientific research on humans

first_imgA majority of lawmakers on Tuesday evening approved a new piece of legislation that outlines the parameters for conducting scientific research on humans for health purposes, an action ordered three years ago by the Constitutional Chamber of the Supreme Court, or Sala IV.At the time, the Sala IV suspended all such research until a law to regulate it was approved. The ruling halted 124 clinical experiments and 235 epidemiological studies.The bill, No. 17,777 and now known as the Biomedical Research Regulatory Law, establishes regulations that must be followed by both public and private researchers.It states that biomedical research in Costa Rica must be designed for developing or contributing to knowledge on human health, and that it must be guided by the principles of respect for human dignity.It also stipulates that participation in a biomedical investigation must be voluntary and, therefore, participants must not be paid for it. Participants only would be reimbursed for costs associated with participation.As a requirement, volunteers must consent to participation by signing every page of a written authorization.“The approval of this bill is a milestone for the country. The government greatly thanks lawmakers of all parties for reaching an agreement to pass this legislation that will enhance scientific and business growth in the country,” Presidency Minister Carlos Ricardo Benavides said in a press release on Tuesday.The bill was approved in a first round of debate by 37 lawmakers, while eight voted against it.Accessibility Without Exclusion Party lawmaker Víctor Emilio Granados voted against the bill arguing he believes that “this new legislation authorizes the participation of underage volunteers or those with some level of mental disability,” as the drafting states that these people can participate “as long as the research results may produce direct health benefits, or when comparable results in older individuals or in those incapable of consenting cannot be obtained.”Granados argued that the International Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities ensures that persons with severe mental disabilities should not be subjected to biomedical research. Lawmakers agreed to send the approved draft to the Sala IV for consultation.On her Twitter account, President Laura Chinchilla criticized the delay that the consultation would generate, saying, “Despite the urgency to vote in a second debate the Biomedical Research Law, and after years of debate, lawmakers now will consult with Sala IV.”The law also would stipulate that the government must guarantee the rights and safety of research participants, and ensure compliance with ethical standards.The bill would create a new agency called the National Health Research Council (CONIS), which would form part of the Health Ministry and have the responsibility of “ensuring the quality of all research and its strict adherence to human rights.”Although the draft must receive the Sala IV’s approval, lawmakers expect to vote it into law during a second round of debate on Thursday.

HOSHINOYA FujiAll images © Hoshino Resorts

first_imgHOSHINOYA FujiAll images © Hoshino Resorts A traditional Japanese inn in Australia? Ryokans outside Japan could be a whole new way to stay if Hoshino Resorts CEO, Yoshiharu Hoshino, gets his wish.“Our objective is to adapt the ryokan concept to work in major cities such as Sydney, London and New York, and to establish an entirely new accommodation category in these markets in the future,” Mr Hoshino told guests at an Australian media briefing on Tuesday 18 July at Sydney’s Saké Restaurant & Bar in The Rocks.“In these cities we are keen to develop a market in which travellers choose ryokan primarily for comfort and relaxation, rather than for simply a ‘Japanese experience’.”The announcement ties in with Japan’s growing popularity among Australian travellers – increasing 20% year on year, according to JNTO figures – and their likelihood (62%) to visit regional areas during their stay. Hoshino Resorts is well positioned to offer an authentic Japanese experience to these travellers across its three brands – HOSHINOYA, KAI and RISONARE – covering 35 properties and facilities (plus two in Tahiti and Bali).Hoshino Resorts, established as a forestry business in 1904, first entered hospitality in 1914 with the opening of its first hot springs/onsen resort in Karuizawa, amid the mountainous Nagano Prefecture. Mr Hoshino, the fourth generation, became CEO in 1991, after completing a Masters of Management in Hospitality at Cornell. He revitalised the business by opting for an asset-free strategy, choosing management and operations over ownership and development in a time when Japan had an oversupply of new accommodation. It is a model he has maintained to this day, working with investors to ensure Hoshino Resorts can grow regardless of the market.The original Karuizawa onsen resort was overhauled and reopened in 2005, the first to operate under the new, luxury HOSHINOYA brand. This brand now encompasses five properties across Japan – Kyoto, Taketomi Island in Okinawa, Fuji (a glamping resort) and Tokyo – and the recently opened HOSHINOYA Bali in Ubud, each embodying “authentic Japan with modern comfort”.Despite his pursuit of authenticity and innovation, Mr Hoshino still finds time to indulge his pastime of skiing 60 days a year, from New Zealand and Japan to Italy, as he tells Cathy Wagstaff, Group Editor & CEO of Signature Media. Indeed, one of Hoshino Resorts’ ski area on the main island of Honshu, Tomamu, offers a reciprocal lift pass agreement with Cardrona, offering seven days free for Tomamu pass-holders at the South Island resort, and vice versa. Tomamu is also set to welcome a new ski-in, ski-out village in the upcoming 2017/18 ski season, ideal for its family target market.Mr Hoshino said that he loves Australian travellers for embracing all that the mountains of Japan have to offer, be it risk-taking, adrenaline-pumping adventures or cultural activities. Increasingly Australians are warming to hot springs and onsen resorts, such as those offered by HOSHINOYA and KAI.Hoshino Resorts also sponsors Japanese gold-medallist snowboarder, Miyabi Onitsuka, who got her start aged five at the company’s Alts Snow Park & Resort in the Tohoku region. Now 18, she is due to compete in her first Winter Olympic Games next year.Nurturing Hoshino Resorts’ homegrown talent is part of Mr Hoshino’s ongoing focus on local culture and tradition. Japanese hospitality is at the heart of his philosophy, whether on the mountains or in a chic ryokan in the city.last_img read more

Go back to the enewsletter Happy first birthday t

first_imgGo back to the e-newsletterHappy first birthday to Bangkok’s top centre-city luxury hotel. Park Hyatt Bangkok opened 12 May 2017 and very quickly top fashionistas and travellers discovered the value of staying here; the gal was told that some never leave the building, but why should they? The building itself, by Architectural Digest‘s 2018 female of the year Amanda Levite, is a 37-floor glass sculpture that twists in and out. Inside, Yabu Pushelburg’s white-oak floors and walls, complemented by enormous windows and softest-shade carpets, are more soothing than many spa experiences. Of course, being this brand, this is a luxury hotel with statement bathrooms and pale cream cuddly Kashwere robes that exactly match the marble (and toiletries are Le Labo). And everywhere in public areas, there is sculpture and culture.At breakfast, I was absorbed in one of the fashion books casually placed, with a silver chess set, by the entrance to the indoor-out Embassy Room. Yes, I could have read about Dior but, instead, I picked up Vintage Details, a 2016 coffee table book co-authored by Jeffrey Mayer, curator Sue Ann Genet, Costume Collection and Research Center, Syracuse University NY, and London College of Fashion’s Basia Szkutnickas. So there I was, absorbed in the interior construction of some 1960s ladies upholstered swimwear as I ate Beillevaire yoghurts from France with a Thai omelette (stir-fried chicken with garlic) and addictive hotel-made brown sourdough, with Beerenberg preserves.Last night I was with the Aussie GM of this gorgeous 222-room hotel, Michael Golden, and we were really lucky to get the last table in the 35th-floor steakhouse-style Penthouse Restaurant. After an all-red salad, with chia dressing, I went on to a Ranger’s Valley ribeye with green and white asparagus, and we drank Hewitson 2014 Barossa Valley Private Cellar Shiraz. But as well as feeling at home, one of the reasons that Australasians love this place is its facilities. There are about 150 whiskies in the 35th-floor speakeasy bar and the views from the 37th-floor rooftop’s outdoor lounge are spectacular.Of course, as in any good luxury hotel today, the Lifefitness gym is 24/7, and the spa has Biologique Recherche. If you want retail exercise and/or therapy, head down below the luxury hotel, which starts at the ninth floor. Under no circumstances miss Open House, an endless space that morphs ceiling-high bookshops with restaurants and bars and just, well, flopping sofas, and down below is a similar infinity space of Thai food stalls and grocery items.
