Gallery Media Group head Ryan Harwood sees this as just the start, and says the company could build or buy other media properties in the coming months. When serial entrepreneur Gary Vaynerchuk bought PureWow in early 2017, the plan was to use the women’s lifestyle media company to launch a suite of brands under the leadership of its CEO Ryan Harwood.

Last week, an Uber self-driving car struck and killed pedestrian Elaine Herzberg in Tempe, Arizona. Then on Friday, The New York Timesly reported that the self-driving car program "was not living up to expectations" even before last week's crash. The cars "were having trouble driving through construction zones and next to tall vehicles," the Times said. Uber halted testing nationwide last week. Now Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey has announced that he is seeking to "suspend Uber's ability to test and operate autonomous vehicles" in Arizona. Given the huge challenges facing the project—and Uber as a whole—Uber CEO Dara Khosrowshahi should consider a drastic remedy: sell off the project to another company. Reaching commercial viability could easily require several more years of steady funding, and it's not clear if Uber can provide that. In 2017, Uber lost more than $1 billion per quarter, and at its current burn rate the company will run out of money in 2019 if it can't … [Read more...] about Uber’s self-driving car project is struggling—the company should sell it
In May and June 2013, when New Orleans’ murder rate was the sixth-highest in the United States, the Orleans Parish district attorney handed down two landmark racketeering indictments against dozens of men accused of membership in two violent Central City drug trafficking gangs, 3NG and the 110ers. Members of both gangs stood accused of committing 25 murders as well as several attempted killings and armed robberies. Subsequent investigations by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, the Federal Bureau of Investigation, and local agencies produced further RICO indictments, including that of a 22-year-old man named Evans “Easy” Lewis, a member of a gang called the 39ers who was accused of participating in a drug distribution ring and several murders. According to Ronal Serpas, the department’s chief at the time, one of the tools used by the New Orleans Police Department to identify members of gangs like 3NG and the 39ers came from the Silicon … [Read more...] about Palantir has secretly been using New Orleans to test its predictive policing technology

The footprints of enterprise resource planning (ERP) and customer relationship management (CRM) systems seem to overlap — they both handle contacts and companies and lots of details about orders. Indeed, several ERP vendors claim that CRM, HR and the scheduling of executive golf outings are part of the ERP domain. Consequently, there is sufficient vagueness and confusion on these topics to …ahem… cloud the issue. Since there’s not much confusion about who uses ERP vs. CRM systems, let’s start there. The main users of CRM systems are in the sales and support organizations – they are ultimately customer-facing and they don’t do the actual work of producing and fulfilling orders (they just yell at the people who do that). In contrast, the ERP users are focused on the process and logistics of producing the widgets: factory managers, production schedulers, buyers, supply chain types and finance types. ERP users are … [Read more...] about CRM vs ERP: What’s the difference and which do you need?

Verizon, AT&T and T-Mobile employees are forming a new group, called Wireless Workers United, which will be the go-to venue for joint negotiations with carriers on everything labor related. The initiative stems from the Communication Workers of America (CWA) organization, which previously was tasked with union duties, but approached each carrier separately, while now employees who are members can act in a conjoined manner, states Dennis Trainor, a CWA VP: This is a discussion for a news.

According to LinkedIn’s 2017 U.S. Emerging Jobs Report, the number of data scientist positions at American companies has grown by over 650 percent since 2012. And yet, only 35,000 people in the U.S. currently have the requisite skill-set to fill these job openings, leaving companies in nearly every sector desperate for qualified candidates. That means job-seekers who do possess these coveted qualifications will likely have their pick of roles over the next few years. But while the tech, energy, and telecommunications industries have long held a certain allure, there’s one industry I’d encourage every analytics professional to consider: health and wellness. Analytics in health and wellness: success through collaboration There are numerous data-related job titles and functions that fall under the expansive umbrella of the health and wellness industry. The subset in which I work — health and wellness marketing — provides a unique perspective at the … [Read more...] about Want a job in data analytics?

On 25th May 2018, the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) will come into force. By now, most of us in IT are familiar with the basic concepts, but a large number of organisations are still unsure about what steps they need to take in order to remain compliant. What is GDPR and why is it being introduced? The GDPR is specifically concerned with ‘personal data breach’: a breach of security leading to the destruction, loss, alteration, unauthorised disclosure of, or access to, personal data transmitted, stored or otherwise processed. Such data breaches must be immediately reported, both to the authorities and the affected individuals. The regulation defines ‘personal data’ to be any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person (‘data subject’). It includes information that can be used to directly or indirectly identify the person: anything from a name, a photo, an email address, bank details, posts on social … [Read more...] about How enterprise file services can help ensure GDPR compliance
