Alibaba cloud biz is on a run rate over 4B

first_imgAlibaba announced its earnings today, and the Chinese e-commerce giant got a nice lift from its cloud business, which grew 66% to more than $1.1 billion, or a run rate surpassing $4 billion.It’s not exactly on par with Amazon, which reported cloud revenue of $8.381 billion last quarter, more than double Alibaba’s yearly run rate, but it’s been a steady rise for the company, which really began taking the cloud seriously as a side business in 2015.At that time, Alibaba Cloud’s president Simon Hu boasted to Reuters that his company would overtake Amazon in four years. It is not even close to doing that, but it has done well to get to more than a billion a quarter in just four years.In fact, in its most recent data for the Asia-Pacific region, Synergy Research, a firm that closely tracks the public cloud market, found that Amazon was still number one overall in the region. Alibaba was first in China, but fourth in the region outside of China, with the market’s Big 3 — Amazon, Microsoft and Google — coming in ahead of it. These numbers were based on Q1 data before today’s numbers were known, but they provide a sense of where the market is in the region.Synergy’s John Dinsdale says the company’s growth has been impressive, outpacing the market growth rate overall. “Alibaba’s share of the worldwide cloud infrastructure services market was 5% in Q2 — up by almost a percentage point from Q2 of last year, which is a big deal in terms of absolute growth, especially in a market that is growing so rapidly,” Dinsdale told TechCrunch.He added, “The great majority of its revenue does indeed come from China (and Hong Kong), but it is also making inroads in a range of other APAC country markets — Indonesia, Malaysia, Singapore, India, Australia, Japan and South Korea. While numbers are relatively small, it has also got a foothold in EMEA and some operations in the U.S.”The company was busy last quarter adding more than 300 new products and features in the period ending June 30th (and reported today). That included changes and updates to core cloud offerings, security, data intelligence and AI applications, according to the company.While the cloud business still isn’t a serious threat to the industry’s Big Three, especially outside its core Asia-Pacific market, it’s still growing steadily and accounted for almost 7% of Alibaba’s total of $16.74 billion in revenue for the quarter — and that’s not bad at all.Ambitious Alibaba takes aim at the kings of cloud computinglast_img read more

In a record year the movie theatre strikes back

first_imgIn a record year, the movie theatre strikes back NEW YORK — The movie theatre was dead, they said. After ticket sales slumped in 2017 , due largely to the worst summer season in more than a decade, pundits far and wide predicted the hastening demise of moviegoing, an inevitable casualty to the rise of streaming.This year, the movies flipped the script.This weekend, as “Aquaman,” ”Bumblebee” and “Mary Poppins Returns” arrive in theatres, ticket sales will reach a new record for the year, passing the previous 2016 high of $11.4 billion. Driven in part by zeitgeist-grabbing cultural events like “Black Panther,” ”Crazy Rich Asians” and even documentaries like “Won’t You Be My Neighbour?” the box office is expected to end up around $11.8 billion for the year. The overall domestic gross is up nearly 9 per cent from last year; ticket sales are up about 6 per cent.And it’s not just in North America. Propelled by Chinese moviegoers, global ticket sales should, for the second time ever, exceed $40 billion. Saudi Arabia declared itself open for business to Hollywood, after more than 35 years without theatres. In the United Kingdom, cinemas are headed to their best year since 1971.“This year serves to confirm that the movie theatre business is strong and growing in the long term, even though it can be cyclical in the short term,” said John Fithian, president of the National Organization of Theater Owners, the trade organization known as NATO. “Last summer of 2017, when there just weren’t very many movies coming out that had any traction, we confronted the inevitable story about the impending death of the movie theatre business. And we said back then: It’s all about short-term product supply.”“We knew that once the movies came back, we would be fine,” said Fithian.Even in a year where “Star Wars” flopped, the hits have indeed returned, even if they’ve come from some predictable places. All of the year’s top 10 movies were either sequels, reboots or based on a comic book. Even this year’s Oscar front runner, “A Star Is Born” ($376.6 million worldwide and counting for Warner Bros.), is a remake. The top three films of the year — “Black Panther,” ”Avengers: Infinity War,” ”Incredibles 2″ — all come from market-leader Disney, which is also in the process of gobbling up 20th Century Fox.But there were some less likely hits, too. Mid-budgeted films like “Bohemian Rhapsody,” ”Halloween,” ”Creed II” and the year’s bestselling original movie, “A Quiet Place,” had a significant role in driving the record box office. For the first time ever, four documentaries — “RBG,” ”Free Solo,” ”Three Identical Strangers,” ”Won’t You Be My Neighbour” — each cleared $10 million. Surprise successes — a franchise-birthing “Spider-Man” spinoff (“Venom”), a well-reviewed “Transformers” movie (“Bumblebee”) — outnumbered the disappointments (“Skyscraper,” ”Robin Hood”).Above all, the movies were often in the centre of the cultural conversation, never more so than with the history-making “Black Panther,” which became the third-highest grossing domestic release ever ($700.1 million) not accounting for inflation.Hollywood executives say the year has demonstrated that 2017 was an aberration.“When the experts out there were talking about the end of theatrical moviegoing, I just didn’t buy that to begin with,” said Jim Orr, distribution chief for Universal Pictures, which had hits in “Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom,” ”The Grinch” and “Halloween.” ”It was just some scheduling moves that happened along with some movies that just underperformed. People want to go out. They want the social experience. They want to be in theatres. And we proved that exponentially this year.”The box-office rebound came in a year during which Netflix launched its most ambitious original movie slate, premiering some 70 new films. Though Netflix this fall relented to a degree by playing three of its films (“Roma,” ”The Ballad of Buster Scruggs” and “Bird Box”) exclusively in theatres before premiering on its streaming service, Netflix and exhibitors remain at odds over the benefits of the traditional theatrical window.Yet there is a growing sense that Netflix may not be public enemy No. 1 for movie theatres, after all. In 2018, Netflix has gained millions of subscribers, just as movie theatres have surged. Co-existence is possible. Last month, a NATO survey found that 33 per cent of moviegoers who see nine or more movies a year also spend 15 hours per week on streaming platforms.“We have maintained for years that streaming in the home is not taking away from the moviegoing experience,” said Fithian. “If anything, streaming in the home is damaging other forms of home entertainment. Cable television, for example. DVD sales, for example.”Streaming will only be more omnipresent in 2019, when Disney and Warner Bros. are set to debut their own Netflix-like services. But both studios remain resolutely devoted to exhibition and in releasing some of their biggest releases in traditional slow periods on the calendar. The year’s biggest movie, “Black Panther,” opened in February. Three of Warner Bros.’ top performers — “The Meg,” ”Crazy Rich Asians” and “The Nun” — benefited from the typically quiet dog-days of summer.“There were some really good movies that were spread out through the year,” said Jeff Goldstein, Warner Bros. distribution chief. “That’s the real takeaway: Make good movies, people will come.”But disruption is still at the door. Subscription services remade the moviegoing experience, led by the swift rise and fall of MoviePass, which took credit for the box-office revival before its inexpensive pricing structure proved unsustainable. MoviePass ran out of cash, repeatedly revamped its business model and descended into chaos, lawsuits and even a fraud investigation.The box office still chugged along (Fithian calls MoviePass’ impact “overblown”) and other subscription services (notably one by AMC , the world’s largest chain) entered the fray.Other threats to the movie theatre loom. When Disney’s acquisition of Fox is made official, there will be one less major studio in Hollywood. Further consolidation is expected, something Fithian grants “poses a challenge” for exhibitors that depend on a steady supply of movies. But he pointed to others that have picked up the slack: STX, Annapurna, A24, Bleecker St., Amazon and Apple, which last month partnered with A24 for a slate of films.Whether 2019 will continue the box-office trend or see a repeat of last year will come down, as it always does, to the movies. Analysts are bullish, predicting another record-setting year thanks to a Disney-heavy lineup including sure-fire blockbusters “Avengers: Endgame,” ”Captain Marvel,” ”Frozen 2″ and “Star Wars: Episode IX.”“On paper, that year is going to make this year look like small potatoes,” says Paul Dergarabedian, senior media analyst for Comscore.Of course, similar predictions were made for 2017, too. That’s the problem with movie scripts. They can always be rewritten.___AP Film Writer Lindsey Bahr contributed to this report.___Follow AP Film Writer Jake Coyle on Twitter at: http://twitter.com/jakecoyleAPJake Coyle, The Associated Press AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email This image released by Marvel Studios shows, front row from left, Danai Gurira, Chadwick Boseman, Chris Evans, Scarlet Johansson and Sebastian Stan in a scene from “Avengers: Infinity War.” (Chuck Zlotnick/Marvel Studios via AP) by Jake Coyle, The Associated Press Posted Dec 20, 2018 1:20 pm PDTlast_img read more

Born in Hangzhou,"Throwing shade, China and Russia Very insulting but perhaps Europe should first pay its fair share of NATO which the US subsidizes greatly" The jab followed Macron’s comments to Europe 1 radio earlier that week when the French president mentioned “attempted attacks in cyberspace and interference in our democratic lives” and concluded Europe needed to protect itself “with respect to China Russia and even the United States of America” To Trump it did not matter that Macron was referring to attacks on the Internet rather than live battlefields And so when the two men met on Saturday morning at the Elysée Palace they wore frozen smilesa sharp contrast with the effusive welcome Trump received on his last visit to France for Bastille Day celebrations in July 2017 “We have become very good friends” Trump told reporters on Saturday But all weekend Trump cut a solitary figure He canceled his visit to the US war cemetery in Belleau Wood northeast of Parison Saturday afternoon apparently because rain had grounded the Marine One helicopter Meanwhile Macron and German Chancellor Angela Merkel hugged each other in Compiègne the site where the Armistice peace treaty was signed in 1918 Macron posted the photo on Twitter with just one word: “Unis” (United) On Sunday morning Trump again went his own way: He ducked into the Elysée Palace through the side entrance of the building for a breakfast with all the leaders rather than joining Macron’s receiving line at the front door And after breakfast almost all 70 leaders walked down the Avenue du Champs-Elysée in the rain to the Arc de Triomphea symbolic echo of victorious French troops marching down the avenue after Paris was liberated from the Nazis (with critical US help) in 1944 Meanwhile a US motorcade escorted Trump alone to the ceremony There standing under the arch at the official ceremony to mark the end of the war with leaders from across the world seated before him Macron issued his sharpest rebuke yet to Trump albeit without once mentioning his name “Nationalism is a betrayal of patriotism” the French leader said With Trump Russian President Vladimir Putin and Merkel all seated in the front row he said nationalism and patriotism were exact opposites By putting our interests first he warned " we erase what a nation holds dearest what gives it life what makes it great and what is essential: its moral values" And yet despite that impassioned plea there is one fact Macron cannot escape: he and indeed all of Europe badly needs the United States For months Macron has called for Europe to ramp up its military forces and to try to create what he calls a “European Army” in which the European Union’s 28 member nations (27 after Britain leaves in March) would jointly train forces and deploy them in battle Without a crack fighting force Europeans will remain dependent on outside help as it did during both world wars when the US military stepped in On a continent that has suffered centuries of wars military independence is a tempting prospect But in reality Macron’s idea is widely regarded as unworkable “You cannot have an Army without having an executive branch” says François Heisbourg special adviser to the Foundation for Strategic Research in Paris “The EU is not a country it is not a state” he says And so he says “you will notice the resounding silence from Macron’s EU partners” In part because of Macron’s pushand perhaps also because of pressure from Trumpseveral EU countries increased military spending last year according to Heisbourg But Europe remains heavily dependent on the US for its security “They could not manage without the US in a big crisis” says Michael Shurkin senior political scientist in Washington for the RAND Corporation who studies EU militaries While France and Britain regularly deploy forces in shooting wars few other European countries do “By and large all of them have militaries designed to work as a coalition run by the US” he says In recent wars in Libya and Mali French forces depended on the US military for aerial refueling early warning systems and other key operations that the Europeans were simply incapable of doing In addition says Shurkin EU governments have for years cut military budgets “knowing full well that the US would protect them” For many Europeans the history of catastrophic battle still looms large There are monuments and plaques to those killed in World War I in almost every French village town and even in schoolyards At least 3 million French and German soldiers died as well as about 116000 American soldiers “It is the most important element of France’s collective memory since the French Revolution” in 1789 says Heisbourg “Every family surrendered their boys to the war” And among the EU members that border Russia like Latvia Lithuanian and Estonia the possibility of another major war seems quite feasible “We are doing everything together to strengthen our security in the region” Latvian President Raimonds Vējonis told TIME in Paris on Sunday He cited Russia’s annexation of Crimea in 2014 as an example of the rising threat from Moscow Yet like others Vējonis says he does not support Macron’s idea of a European Armyeven if it was feasible That is because the Baltics like others depends heavily on US and Canadian military cooperation and intelligence which could take a lesser role if a European Army existed “That is why it is very important we are part of NATO” he said For Macron the challenge now is to inject a sense of urgency at a time when Europe is not at war At a dinner at the D’Orsay Museum in Paris on Saturday night he told the leaders that they risked taking peacetime for grantedan unwise proposition he said on a continent that has known repeated wars And on Sunday night when Macron opened his inaugural Paris Peace Forum a gathering of presidents prime ministers politicians and executives he marveled at how leaders of countries that were bitter enemies a century ago were now close friends seated in the audience “Will it be a snapshot of the final moment of unity before the world descends into disorder” he asked “The answer is down to us” Contact us at editors@timecomConcussions are an unfortunate reality in many sports from football to soccer and boxing And as studies continue to link concussions to a range of health problems from depression to Alzheimer’s and other brain changes sports and health officials have focused their attention on whether protective equipment like helmets can lower the risk of brain injuries Most research to date shows that there is no concussion-proof helmet to protect against all concussions and brain injury In March 2013 a panel of 32 experts updated the Consensus Statement on Concussion in Sport and concluded that while mouth guards and helmets generally protect the faces and heads of athletes they don’t do much to protect them from internal brain damage In fact they warned helmets and mouth guards may even give some players a false sense of security and invincibility and may make them act more aggressively on the field MORE: A New Blood Test to Diagnose Concussions On The Field A new study published in the Journal of Neurosurgery confirmed that there’s no helmet that can protect a player from all concussions but the researchers compared two helmets and found that some can be more protective than others While previous studies simply looked at rates of concussions across a wide variety of helmet types and among players with varying rates of head impacts in this study the scientists were able to control for the number of impacts each player had and compare that to his helmet type and risk of concussion The researchers analyzed six years of head impacts among 1833 college football players from eight schools The players were either wearing a Riddell VSR4 or Riddell Revolution helmet which the manufacturers say no longer have screws that are typically found in the forehead area of the helmet That construction provides “an unparalleled amount of face mask flexion dispersing impact energies around the helmet instead of onto the player’s head” the company claims The two helmets were popular choices at the time of the study (MORE: Your Kid Is Probably Wearing the Wrong Helmet to Prevent Concussions) The research team monitored more than a million head impacts by equipping the helmets with sensors to measure the force velocity and direction of each impact They found a 54% lower risk of concussion among players wearing the Riddell Revolution helmet compared to those who wore the VSR4 helmet That suggests that the Revolution is better at dissipating the energy from an impact on the helmet before it reaches the head leading to what the researchers call lower head accelerations and a lower concussion risk Since rule changes can only go so far in reducing the risk of impacts to the head the scientists say that improving helmet design to lessen the damage that such trauma can do to the brain is also critical and their data suggest that may be possible No helmet can prevent 100% of concussions but if some can reduce the risk then they should be studied further the researchers say Contact us at editors@timecom But beyond the ceremonial proceedings, but the most easily discussed infractions occur at the areas of

Require that the Department of Justice submit an annual report to Congress containing statistics on missing and murdered Native American women and recommendations on how to improve data collectionOne of the recommendations in the United Tribes letter was that the Department of Justice collect and provide statistics on missing and murdered Native American women The letter stated that American Indian women are the only population group for whom such data is not collected"We don’t have the data" Heitkamp said "When we don’t have the data (the issue) gets forgotten"Heitkamp said that she had begun drafting the bill even before the United Tribes letter She said the proposals are built on other work she has done such as efforts to combat human trafficking the extension of the Amber Alert system to Indian reservations and the vagueness of law enforcement jurisdiction on American Indian landsThe Hoeven and Heitkamp legislation does not address several concerns expressed in the United Tribes letterThe letter sent to North Dakota’s Congressional delegation last week also called on the US government to create a federal-local law enforcement task force to oversee the LaFontaine-Greywind case to ensure that justice is served and appropriate resources are provided to her family and childIt recommended the US Department of Justice commission a cross-jurisdictional task force to reopen closed cases of missing and murdered Native American woman It also called on the federal government to provide tribal governments additional funding to develop protocols for investigating missing persons cases"The murder of Savanna illustrates a much larger problem of epic proportions" wrote Dave Flute chairman of the Sisseton Wahpeton Tribe and chairman of the United Tribes of North Dakota "In some locations Native American women are murdered at more than ten times the national average and one in three experiences sexual violence"In the period after MG Ramachandran’s demise in December 1987 the clamour for his political legacy was extremely ugly From the manner in which Jayalalithaa who fancied herself as his political successor was pushed out of his cortege to the ugly split in the AIADMK the slugfest between the Jayalalithaa and the Janaki Ramachandran (MGR’s widow) factions was out in the open for everyone to see Not a surprise given that a lot was at stake To be successful in Tamil Nadu politics both camps needed to be seen as MGR’s chosen one as only that would ensure electoral success File image of J Jayalalithaa PTI Forward to 2017 and Amma’s boys — Edappadi Palaniswami and O Paneerselvam — have copied the MGR template That explains their decision to anoint Jayalalithaa as the eternal general secretary of the AIADMK With the powers of the general secretary in the real world vested in the convenor (OPS) and deputy convenor (EPS) this is their way of saying they are the inheritors of Amma’s legacy This is also an acknowledgement of the fact that but for Brand Jayalalithaa they are politically irrelevant Not that there was no politics behind this life-after-death appointment Hard bargaining in the days preceding the merger meant both EPS and OPS camps could not agree on who will be the general secretary With both leaders unwilling to make way for the other Jayalalithaa was chosen as the compromise party chief in eternity and it was decided that the top job will no longer be called general secretary The nomenclature was changed to the twin posts of convenor and deputy convenor who will for purpose of public posturing rule in Amma’s name Such theatrics are not new to Dravidian politicians When the Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam (DMK) was founded in the 60s CN Annadurai kept the president’s post vacant arguing that only Periyar had a right over the seat Though of course Periyar was alive at that time Subsequently Karunanidhi became the President of the DMK himself and continues to this day with MK Stalin now made working president Though the AIADMK was founded by MGR after his exit from the DMK Jayalalithaa cast the party in her own mould and made it her own She never made MGR the eternal general secretary of the AIADMK and ensured she occupied that post till her death in December 2016 By letting her continue in the post eternally her band of followers has ensured that AIADMK is Amma and Amma is AIADMK MGR’s visage has been relegated only to the photo exhibitions organised during his 100th anniversary The process of sidelining MGR and using him only when he was needed started with Jayalalithaa points out senior political commentator TN Gopalan "For a year after she came to power in 1991 Jayalalithaa did not use his photograph anywhere or talk about him She resented the control MGR wielded over her when he was alive It was only after an electoral debacle that she went back to using MGR’s photographs at party events and campaigns" says Gopalan But Jayalalithaa by virtue of having been a successful cinema star (a huge draw in Tamil Nadu) still could hold her own EPS and OPS pale in comparison when it comes to charisma and have to necessarily fall back on the Amma name for political sustenance But the ‘mere paas Amma hai’ card is also strategic because it positions the ruling AIADMK as Jayalalithaa’s party With TTV Dhinakaran threatening to "send this government packing" if the governor allows a trust vote it will allow EPS and OPS to accuse Dhinakaran of overthrowing "Amma’s party’s government" should he succeed in his mission Two it is to kill any chance of Sasikala trying to return as party general secretary For Sasikala replacing Jayalalithaa would not be seen as the sentimentally right thing to do It makes the battle between OPS and EPS and Dinakaran as the clash between AIADMK (Amma) and AIADMK (Chinnamma) Three and most important EPS and OPS want to retrieve the two leaves symbol from the Election Commission that froze it ahead of the RK Nagar byelection in April Having Jayalalithaa as the eternal general secretary would improve the party’s bargaining power at Nirvachan Sadan So is the eternal general secretary going to be truly forever Given that the politics of AIADMK is also the politics of betrayal it is anyone’s guess After all just a few months back EPS and OPS respectfully referred to Sasikala as Chinnamma fell at her feet and asked her to be party general secretary The same set of leaders have now dumped her unceremoniously By Stephen Farrell JALAZONE CAMP West Bank (Reuters) – Prince William paid the first official British royal visit to the Palestinian Territories on Wednesday touring a refugee camp in the Israeli-occupied West Bank and voicing hope for peace in a meeting with the Palestinian president William second in line to the throne received a red-carpet welcome to the Muqata the Palestinian government headquarters in the city of Ramallah that included an honour guard and band "I’m very glad our two countries work so closely together and have had success stories with education and relief work in the past so long may that continue" William told President Mahmoud Abbas "My sentiments are the same as yours in hoping that there is a lasting peace in the region" the prince said William then visited Jalazone refugee camp and its health clinic and a school administered by the United Nations Relief and Works Agency (UNRWA) A sign banning weapons – a picture of a Kalashnikov assault rifle with red line through it – was on the door of the health centre which the prince toured before visiting the school and chatting with pupils Armed Palestinian security men stood on rooftops in the camp reached via an unpaved road and bordering a large Jewish settlement More than 9000 people live in the crowded camp of cinderblock and concrete buildings On Tuesday Israeli President Reuven Rivlin publicly asked the prince to bring Abbas "a message of peace" and tell him it is time to find a way to "build confidence" between Israel and the Palestinians Rivlin’s position is largely ceremonial and in remarks released to the media after his own meeting with William earlier that day Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu made no such request Peace talks between Israel and the Palestinians collapsed in 2014 and the divide between the two sides has widened in the years since amid bouts of violence The West Bank where Palestinians have limited self-rule has been largely quiet in recent months in contrast to surges of fighting along Israel’s frontier with Gaza an enclave ruled by Abbas’s
