Elaine Welteroth Departs Condé Nast

first_imgElaine Welteroth has stepped down as editor-in-chief of Teen Vogue and is leaving Condé Nast, bringing an abrupt end to a six-year run that saw her rise from beauty editor at Glamour to the youngest editor-in-chief in Condé Nast history.“We talked to Elaine about a number of different opportunities but ultimately she decided to go in a different direction,” reads an official statement given to Folio: by a Condé Nast spokesperson. “She was instrumental in the successful launch of the Teen Vogue Summit and [we] know that she will carry that same passion and enthusiasm into her next venture. We wish her all the best in what we know will be an incredible career.”The revelation comes days after Condé tapped CNN’s Samantha Barry as the next editor-in-chief of Glamour, ending a four-month search for Cindi Leive’s successor. Welteroth, who shifted over to Teen Vogue from Glamour in 2012, was widely speculated to be among the frontrunners for Leive’s old job, although the company never publicly identified any candidates. The obvious choice to lead Teen Vogue going forward is Philip Picardi, currently digital editorial director for both Teen Vogue and Allure, who co-ran the brand with Welteroth until her elevation to editor-in-chief last April.Teen Vogue shuttered its print edition in December while Condé Nast indicated plans to invest further in the brand’s growing digital presence—largely the fruit of Welteroth and Picardi’s work shifting the brand’s coverage to focus increasingly on social and political issues as well as fashion and celebrity content, the brand’s historical bread and butter.No word yet on what’s next for Welteroth, but for what it’s worth, The Hollywood Reporter added minutes after Fashionista first broke the news that she has signed with talent agency CAA.last_img read more

Instagram has new rules for removing accounts

first_imgInstagram said it’ll notify users if their account is at risk of being removed along with a way to appeal the company’s decision. Users will be able to appeal if their content was taken down for violating Instagram’s rules against nudity and pornography, bullying and harassment, hate speech, drug sales, and counter-terrorism. Instagram said in the coming months it’ll expand appeals. It’s also giving users a way to submit appeals directly within the photo sharing app. Currently, users have to go through the site’s help center.The company will delete accounts right away if they violate the company’s drug sales or sexual solicitation policies. Share your voice Instagram has made changes to its policy about removing accounts. James Martin/CNET Instagram said Thursday it’s rolling out changes to how it decides what accounts to take down, a sign that the photo sharing site is getting tougher about removing offensive content that violates its rules.The Facebook-owned company will start removing accounts that rack up a number of violations within a window of time. Currently, Instagram takes down accounts that have a certain percentage of content that violates its rules.An Instagram spokeswoman said it isn’t sharing the exact number of violations or time frame because of concerns users will game the system.disable-thresholds-2-up-enInstagram will notify users if their account may be removed. Instagram “Similarly to how policies are enforced on Facebook, this change will allow us to enforce our policies more consistently and hold people accountable for what they post on Instagram,” the company said in a blog post.The announcement comes during the same week that a man suspected of killing a 17-year-old girl posted a photo of her bloody body on what appeared to be his Instagram account. Instagram pulled down the photo and deleted his account but the copies of the image still reappeared on the site and other platforms afterward, raising concerns about how well the social network and others moderate content. The company has also come under fire for not doing enough to combat bullying or shielding teenagers from images of self-harm. At the same time, Instagram and parent company Facebook continue to face allegations that it’s suppressing conservative voices.

Quader castigates BNP for complaining to foreigners

first_imgBangladesh Awami general secretary Obaidul Quader. File PhotoAwami League general secretary Obaidul Quader on Saturday said BNP has nothing other than complaining to foreigners after its failure in both the election and its movement, reports UNB.He also described the remarks of BNP secretary general Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir over the national election as ‘delirium of a failed politician’.Quader, also the road transport and bridges minister, came up with the remarks while talking to reporters before a joint meeting of Awami League presidium members and the party’s different associate bodies at its Bangabandhu Avenue office.”They (BNP) couldn’t wage a movement over the last 10 years. We thank them as they joined the national election. But they utterly failed in the election, too,” he said.Quader further said, “What can be their (BNP’s) resort now as they have failed in its movement and the election? Now they’re complaining to foreigners and it’s their old habit.”He said the Awami League was more united during the 11th parliamentary election than in the past. “We achieved a massive victory as we could show a stronger unity through excellent coordination under the leadership of Sheikh Hasina.”The Awami League general secretary said their president Sheikh Hasina’s strong stance against evil and communal forces also helped the party get an unforgettable victory in the election.The minister said their party will celebrate the victory through a rally at Suhrawardy Udyan on 19 January.At the beginning of the meeting, one minute silence was observed paying homage to party former secretary general Syed Ashraful Islam.Four days after being elected an MP of the 11th parliament, Awami League presidium member and public administration minister Syed Ashraful Islam died of lung cancer at a hospital in Thailand on Thursday night at the age of 67.last_img read more

Thailand to hold delayed election in Feb military govt

first_imgPeople vote behind booths at a polling station in Bangkok on 2 February 2014. — Photo: ReutersThailand will hold a much-delayed general election on 24 February 2019, the election commission said on Tuesday, after the junta lifted a ban on political activity it imposed after taking power in a coup in 2014.The junta imposed the strict ban on political activity citing the need for order after months of street protests against the democratically elected government of former prime minister Yingluck Shinawatra.The election, which many hope will restore democracy in Southeast Asia’s second-biggest economy, will likely pit the populist political movement backed by former prime minister Thaksin Shinawatra and supported by many in rural areas against the military and royalist establishment.The Bangkok-based establishment seized power in successive coups in 2006 and 2014 and now has its own proxy political parties.The junta began easing the ban in September, when it allowed political parties to resume organising ahead of an election expected in February.It still retains sweeping powers to maintain law and order despite lifting the ban, including conducting searches, freezing assets, and making arrests.The election commission confirmed the Feb. 24 election date on Tuesday, just before a statement announcing the ban on political activity had been lifted was published in the Royal Gazette.“The people and political parties will be able to take part in political activities during this period leading up to the election in accordance with the constitution,” the statement said..Thailand last held a successful election in 2011 but the election commission said it was ready to go ahead with the 24 February poll.“The lifting of the ban means political activities can resume, including political campaigning, but this has to be done under the law,” deputy election commission secretary-general Sawang Boonmee told Reuters.last_img read more

Company Claims ESLs to be the Future of Light Bulbs w Video

first_img(PhysOrg.com) — While compact fluorescent lights (CFLs) are currently the primary alternative to incandescent light bulbs, a company from Seattle predicts that its own novel light bulbs will eventually replace CFLs and LEDs. Vu1 (“view one”) Corporation has been working on its electron stimulated luminescence (ESL) bulbs, and has recently released a demo video (below). On the other hand, LEDs don’t contain hazardous materials like mercury, and can last for up to 50,000 hours. However, their heat dissipation requirements make them more expensive than other bulbs, with a projected retail price of about $40 each.In contrast, ESLs don’t contain hazardous substances and should cost about $20, or the equivalent of a dimmable CFL reflector bulb, according to Vu1. Similar to CFLs, ESLs use 65% less energy than incandescent bulbs, and last for up to 6,000 hours, or about four times the lifespan of incandescents. Other advantages of ESLs include a warm color temperature similar to incandescent light, as well as the ability to be turned on instantly and be fully dimmable. Vu1 plans to begin manufacturing ESLs by the end of the year, and hopes to market the bulb starting in mid-2010. Initially, the company will launch reflector-shaped bulbs, which are used in recessed lighting. Later they hope to expand into other bulb forms such as standard A bulbs and tubes. More information: www.vu1.comvia: CNet Crave© 2009 PhysOrg.com Citation: Company Claims ESLs to be the Future of Light Bulbs (w/ Video) (2009, September 16) retrieved 18 August 2019 from https://phys.org/news/2009-09-company-esls-future-bulbs-video.html Explore further ‘Light within a light’ offers CFL efficiency with incandescent bulb shapecenter_img ESL technology works by firing electrons at phosphor, which then glows. As Vu1 explains, the technology is similar to that used in cathode ray tubes and TVs. However, the bulbs have several improvements, such as in uniform electron distribution, energy efficiency, phosphor performance and manufacturing costs. “CRT and TV technology is based on delivering an electron ‘beam’ and then turning pixels on and off very quickly,” the company explains on its website. “ESL technology is based on uniformly delivering a ‘spray’ of electrons that illuminate a large surface very energy efficiently over a long lifetime.”With ESLs, Vu1 hopes to overcome some of the challenges faced by CFLs and LEDs, the two lighting technologies considered to have the most potential in the post-incandescent era. As the company explains, CFLs’ biggest problem is that they contain about 5 milligrams of mercury. If not recycled properly – or if they’re accidentally broken – CFLs release mercury into the air or groundwater. In addition, some people find the CFLs’ cooler colors less pleasing than the warmer tones of incandescent bulbs. Vu1’s conceptual design for its R-30 bulb. Credit: Vu1.
