first_img More Cool Stuff A shot from a video created by ArtCenter Film alumnus Javier Barcala.JW Marriott Los Angeles L.A. LIVE, recipient of this year’s Condé Nast Traveler’s Top Hotels in Los Angeles: Best Reader’s Choice Award, debuts the results of its collaboration with four ArtCenter College of Design film students to create fresh in-house video content that captures the essence of Los Angeles, as told from the viewpoint of young local artists. Along the same vein as the Marriott International’s Content Studio, focused on innovating corporate brand marketing, the on-site video series tells a larger story about the hotel’s place in the community through a cultural lens. Beginning January 25, 2017, these videos will live in various locations throughout the hotel’s public areas, on exhibition to guests and visitors, crediting each artist for their work.“Providing our guests with an immersive sense of place, and staying true to our L.A. roots, is important to us, and we saw a unique opportunity to share the hotel’s appreciation for Los Angeles and its ties to the community by working with these talented students,” says Javier Cano, general manager. “We’ve really taken the ‘local’ and ‘experiential’ trends to the next level by supporting and exhibiting young creators making art in our own city.”To share an authentic, captivating vision of Los Angeles with guests, JW Marriott Los Angeles approached ArtCenter to tap into young, local talent of various heritages, reflective of the city’s diverse cultural landscape, including Javier Barcala, Jae Yong Park, Emmett Sutherland, and Joe Lombard. The hotel gave the student filmmakers the funds, tools, and space to recreate the city through their eyes and tell the story of the hotel’s ties to the city. Each artist features a completely different viewpoint through their own artistic lens, highlighting various experiences and destinations with individual significance.“ArtCenter Film is thrilled that JW Marriott chose our community of powerful visual storytellers to create a new aesthetic for visitors as they experience the City of Angels,” said Ross LaManna, chair of the Graduate and Undergraduate Film Departments. “These diverse stories with dazzling and wildly-inventive imagery epitomize the heart of our mission. I have no doubt these talented filmmakers will continue to inspire audiences and break new creative ground as they emerge on the cultural landscape.”The videos spotlight iconic Los Angeles destinations such as the Walt Disney Concert Hall and Eames House, as well as quintessential “LA moments” like eating tacos from a favorite street vendor and exploring diverse subcultures throughout the city. This partnership establishes a new annual tradition for JW Marriott Los Angeles L.A. LIVE with ArtCenter College of Design.

Equifax’s huge breach tests Trump pledge to dismantle rules

first_imgThe massive Equifax Inc. data breach has triggered demands on Capitol Hill for stiffer rules and new requirements for what financial companies must do to fend off cyberattacks.Yet tougher oversight would all but certainly require support from the Trump administration and buy-in from congressional Republicans — both of whom want to reduce financial regulation not stiffen it. Democrats so far have led the calls for more rules in the wake of Equifax’s disclosure that 143 million Americans’ personal information was stolen.Tighter constraints would pose a particularly difficult choice for GOP lawmakers because it would most likely mean further empowering the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, a controversial agency created after the 2008 financial crisis that many Republicans have been trying to weaken or put out of business almost from its first day of existence. No other federal regulator supervises Equifax or has officials inside the firm conducting on-site exams. continue reading » 10SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblrlast_img read more

The first edition of the renowned world gastronomic guide for Croatia – Gault & Millau Croatia

first_imgOn over 300 pages, in Croatian and English, the Gault & Millau Croatia guide will present the 100 best restaurants and 100 best wines from all over Croatia, as well as 50 POP places, popular informal bars for pleasant outings.With the arrival of the Gault & Millau guide, Croatia has thus entered the circle of countries that every year are very excited to receive awards for the best achievements in the world of cuisine. In addition to the chef of the year, there are also awards for the chef of traditional cuisine, for the chef of tomorrow, for young talents and for the best POP place. One of the most important gastronomic events of the year will bring together 200 chefs and chefs, professionals, and special guests will be some of the world’s most distinguished chefs such as Ana Roche and San Degeimbre and Gault & Millau President Come de Cherisey. “The release of the Gault & Millau guide for Croatia is a turning point on the domestic gastronomic scene. This is the first time that one of the world’s most prestigious guides has dedicated himself to restaurants, bistros, taverns and other catering facilities throughout Croatia. This is the first time that the selection has been completely anonymous and that the quality assessments have been made on the basis of an assessment methodology developed by Gault & Millau for almost 60 years and which is the same in all countries where there is a guide.”, Said Ingrid Badurina Danielsson, CEO of Gault & Millau Croatia.Mastercard and Gault & Millau Croatia introduce a new award Payment Excellence AwardThe partner of the first Croatian edition of the guide is Mastercard, which initiated the award in an additional category – given the payment options that restaurants offer and the communication of these options to visitors. The restaurant and POP location with the most points in this category will be awarded a prize Payment Excellence Award, with the aim of encouraging the introduction of electronic payments in catering facilities in Croatia. Namely, we increasingly encounter media articles such as those that tourists in Croatia are bothered by the fact that cards are not accepted in restaurants and other catering facilities, so an initiative like this is aimed precisely at encouraging financial inclusion.A mobile application is already available to mobile phone users, showing ratings and detailed descriptions of restaurants in countries that are part of the Gault & Millau family. The app finds restaurants, bistros, patisseries, wine bars that are nearby.last_img read more

Manchester City record first-ever profit of Sheikh Mansour era

first_img City made a £10.7million profit in the 2014-15 season despite failing to win a trophy – figures which highlight how the club have been able to free themselves of any UEFA financial fair play sanctions. The club reported record revenues of £351.8million, up from £347million, but significantly have cut costs including reducing the wage bill for a second successive year. The wage bill is down to £193.5million compared to £205million a year before – Manchester United’s is £203million and Arsenal’s is £192.2million. The most recent figures for Chelsea’s wage bill are £192.7million for the 2013-14 season. City hailed the profit as an “historical step” but chairman Khaldoon Al Mubarak said the lack of silverware last season remained a cause for disappointment, a statement which may serve as something of a warning to manager Manuel Pellegrini. Khaldoon said: “The fact that we consider last season to be below par for Manchester City is a testament to how far we have come in the last seven years. This is a level of ambition that we should not shirk or shy away from. “It is right to have high expectations for this great club and the talented group of players chosen to represent it. “No team can expect to win every year, but competing to win in England’s domestic competitions and improving our performance in the UEFA Champions League are entirely reasonable goals for Manchester City. “The desire for silverware has always been a critical element of His Highness Sheikh Mansour bin Zayed’s strategy for the reinvigoration of Manchester City FC both on and off the pitch. “To put things in their simplest terms, we are now a profitable business with no debt and no outstanding restrictions.” Chief executive Ferran Soriano said the opening of the City Football Academy last December was a significant step and the expansion of the Etihad Stadium to a 55,000 capacity would generate more income. He added: “The 2014-15 season marked a historical step in Manchester City’s journey.” City’s financial results show the club are now competing with neighbours Manchester United off the pitch as well as on it. Overall revenue is in the same ball-park (£351.8million compared to United’s £395million), the wage bill is similar but City do not have to pay anything in debt repayments. Press Associationcenter_img Manchester City have made a profit for the first time since the club’s takeover by Sheikh Mansour in 2008 – and despite what the chairman describes as a “below par” season on the pitch. last_img read more

Minister McHugh heralds opening of €20M Blue Banks project

first_imgMinister for Education and Skills Joe McHugh has heralded the completion of the improved Blue Banks stretch of the N56 between Letterkenny and Kilmacrennan.He said the stretch of the N56 was long known as a notorious stretch of road and the multi-million euro roadworks that have been completed is a huge sign of this Government’s commitment to improved transport infrastructure and safer journeys.The official opening will be performed later today by Minister McHugh and Donegal County Council following an investment of around €20m. The Minister said: “I made a very strong case to Government in 2017 that it made sense to do these extensive roadworks while a new water main was being laid by Irish Water from Loch as Allt to Letterkenny. On top of that I also pushed for the greenway element from Coolboy to Illistrin.“Putting major infrastructure schemes in place at the one time made sense to save taxpayers’ money and also to demonstrate once again how this Government is backing investment in Donegal.“As with a number of road projects in our county, the N56 Blue Banks works included greenway paths along the road for cyclists, walkers, runners and tourists. It’s about leisure, fitness, health and there are already so many people using it – it is a big community facility.“It is often hard to see the light at the end of the tunnel when such major road works are being planned and then get underway, so huge credit must go to the local community for their patience. “The Blue Banks has always been a busy section of road serving north and west Donegal and now it’ll be known as a busy place for people getting fit or just getting outside.”Minister McHugh credited Transport Minister Shane Ross and all those in Transport Infrastructure Ireland, Irish Water and the national roads division of Donegal County Council for their vision for the project.“The team behind the teams of workers included William Diver and the team from BAM whose efficiency and professionalism helped to make this scheme a reality,” Minister McHugh said.”This stretch of road is about the bigger ambition of linking Letterkenny, with its City region status, to the beauty and tourism of the Wild Atlantic Way.“We have more road projects on the way – not least the plans for the Letterkenny-Lifford link and the A5 as well as the long awaited Bonagee bypass. I am confident that these projects will once again be as big a success as the Blue Banks.” Minister McHugh heralds opening of €20M Blue Banks project was last modified: October 9th, 2019 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:Blue BanksMinister Joe McHN56last_img read more

Want To Support Multiple Browsers In The Enterprise? It’s Gonna Cost You

first_imgMassive Non-Desk Workforce is an Opportunity fo… A bare majority – 51% – of the 133 enterprises surveyed by Forrester not only require a single browser, but enforce it, either by removing administrative rights or otherwise locking down the PC. Another 45%  allow users to install alternative browsers, but either don’t support them (13%) or simply support them on a best-effort basis (32%). What The Survey Didn’t AskUnfortunately, Forrester didn’t survey those businesses on the costs of moving from XP to Windows 7 – or, for those businesses already on Windows 7, from IE9 to IE10. According to Capriotti, however, the broader support for Web standards within IE10 justify any transitional costs. The survey also didn’t address any benefits the companies might gain by supporting multiple browsers.A few years ago, the operating system was the primary area of concern for enterprises. But with more corporate applications migrating to the Web, app compatbility is becoming more important. Does this let Microsoft keep some of the same advantages it enjoyed by controlling the Windows platform? Forrester, funded by Microsoft’s dime, says yes. Tags:#Browsers#Internet Explorer#Microsoft#Web Apps#Windows Microsoft’s MessageNot surprisingly, the message favors Microsoft. Alternative browsers typically mean ones not shipped with the PC – and Windows PCs come with Microsoft’s Internet Explorer.Still, it’s no secret that complexity comes with cost and that simplicity is a common theme within IT departments these days. “I think cost is #1 in terms of this,” said Capriotti. “IT departments are getting squeezed, and things like total cost of ownership are becoming paramount.” Forrester cast its survey in the light of the many companies standardized on Windows XP, who now plan a desktop “modernization” effort over the next 12 to 18 months. If they plan to stay with Windows, those companies face a choice: jump to IE10 on Windows 7, or make the leap all the way to Windows 8, which also uses IE10. In that context, it’s no wonder security was the primary reason for their upgrade, as Microsoft has launched campaigns to try and eliminate the notoriously insecure IE6, the browser that originally shipped with Windows XP. The question of which browser is leading the desktop PC market remains open; StatCounter puts IE’s November share at 31.2%, behind Google’s Chrome, at 35.7%. But NetApplications, whose numbers Microsoft has favored, claims IE held 54.8% of the market in November, with Chrome at 17.24% and Firefox at 20.44%.) IT + Project Management: A Love Affair Related Posts center_img 3 Areas of Your Business that Need Tech Now A Microsoft-funded study by Forrester to be released on Thursday claims that enterprises face significant costs for supporting more than one browser among their employees.The study, which ReadWrite viewed in advance, found that supporting an “alternative” browser  carries extra costs when it comes to Web apps. The key metric of the study: $4,200. That’s the average amount the 133 companies polled told Forrester that they would be forced to spend per Web app per browser. Enterprises Support Lots Of Web AppsForrester’s research also found that enterprise companies with 1,000 or more employees typically supported 92 Web applications, and medium-sized companies with 250-999 workers supported 28 Web apps. All told, Forrester found, companies could spend $118,000 to almost $400,000 on browser support alone, not counting additional support or staffing costs. 86% of the firms Forrester surveyed found that their IT costs increased significantly – about 20% – when they had to support multiple browsers.Security ($1,000 per app) testing ($1,000) and training ($900) represented the top three cost buckets, and the companies told Forrester they actually feared break/fix support costs more than app compatibility. A proper, standards-compliant Web app should mitigate compatibility concerns, Forrester noted. But Roger Capriotti, director of marketing for Internet Explorer, argued that IT managers still can’t get away from the costs of testing, deployment and support, no matter how modern the alternative browser. markhachman Cognitive Automation is the Immediate Future of…last_img read more
