HIMSS Media Launches News Site In Connection With Event

first_imgMore and more association and b-to-b publishers are trying to link their digital content with events. It’s a way to connect with an audience after they leave the showfloor, while providing one-stop, multichannel sponsorships for advertisers.UBM Tech has shifted in that direction after dumping its print publications recently, but they’re not the only ones trying it.MedTech Media, a division of Health Information and Management Systems Society (HIMSS) Media, has launched a traditional news site on the strength of one of its fastest growing events. The site, mHealth News, covers the use of mobile technology in healthcare and is closely partnered with the mHealth Summit produced by HIMSS Media.”We’re leveraging the mHealth Summit brand to enable attendees to extend the experience 365-days-a-year,” says Jack Beaudoin, managing director of MedTech Media. mHealth Summit drew more than 4,000 attendees and 300 exhibitors to its last show in December of 2012. It’s grown seven-fold since 2009, Beaudoin says, tapping into a bustling market.The idea behind mHealth News isn’t new, but the direct connection to a co-branded event is. MedTech Media is building on previous iterations of its mobile healthcare technology sites-this is the third since 2009. Most recently the site lived as mHIMSS, an association-based page Beaudoin says the site’s scope of coverage had outgrown.*Similarly, mHealth Summit has dabbled in content creation in the past, but it hasn’t offered anything on a daily news level.”The path that we took to get here is not [one we’ve taken before],” he says. “We’ve been more traditional where we’ve launched a print publication or online news site [as a standalone]. The mHealth News site is the first where we’re really trying to leverage an existing event and the enthusiasm that surrounds it.”mHealth News and mHealth Summit are maintaining separate sales teams, but they’re offering integrated sales packages across their digital and experiential properties. Audience development and attendee marketing will be even more closely tied, Beaudoin says.*Editor’s note: The original version of this article suggested the site had outgrown its “market” rather than its “scope of coverage.” To stay updated on the latest FOLIO: news, become a Facebook fan and follow us on Twitter!last_img read more

Huawei says US ban will significantly harm American jobs companies

first_imgUS actions against Huawei will “affect tens of thousands of American jobs,” according to the company. Alain Jocard/Getty Images Chinese tech giant Huawei says its blacklisting by the US will harm jobs, industry and economics in the states.”This decision is in no one’s interest,” Huawei said in a statement Thursday. “It will do significant economic harm to the American companies with which Huawei does business, affect tens of thousands of American jobs and disrupt the current collaboration and mutual trust that exist on the global supply chain.”Huawei added that it will immediately seek remedies against the decision and “find a resolution.”The company had been added to the US Department of Commerce’s Bureau of Industry and Security Entity List late Wednesday, following an executive order from President Donald Trump effectively banning Huawei from US communications networks. Among other things, the Entity List applies to companies engaging in “activities contrary to US national security and/or foreign policy interests,” according to the bureau’s website. Post a comment 0 Share your voice The Huawei controversy: Everything you need to know Weighing Huaweicenter_img Tags The core issue with Huawei has been concerns over its coziness with the Chinese government and fears that its equipment could be used to spy on other countries and companies. The CIA has reportedly warned intelligence officials that Huawei receives funding from China’s National Security Commission, the People’s Liberation Army and a third branch of the Chinese state intelligence network.Trump’s executive order declared that foreign adversary threats to communications networks, technology and services are a national emergency. Huawei has repeatedly denied that its products pose a security threat, following Australia banning Huawei from 5G in August.In its statement Thursday, Huawei called itself “the unparalleled leader in 5G” and said the US ban would lead to the states “lagging behind” in deployment of the next-generation networking technology.”We are ready and willing to engage with the US government and come up with effective measures to ensure product security,” Huawei said. “Restricting Huawei from doing business in the US will not make the US more secure or stronger; instead, this will only serve to limit the US to inferior yet more expensive alternatives.”Read: Samsung has the most to gain from Google putting Huawei on iceIs the threat real?Huawei denies it has strong ties to the Chinese government. But even if the allegations were true, company officials told CNET in an interview that the security threat is still minimal simply because of the way communications networks are built. “We don’t control the customer network,” Andy Purdy, Huawei’s chief security officer, said in an interview with CNET. “The carriers do. China can order us to do whatever the hell they want. But if we don’t have access to the customer data, we can’t send it back to China.”He went on to explain that mobile operators source their equipment from multiple vendors, which isn’t only a good cyber security practice but also makes good business sense. Francis Dinha, CEO of the security software company OpenVPN, agrees that operators use equipment from multiple vendors and said it’s the wireless operators who are ultimately responsible for securing their networks. “You shouldn’t trust any equipment manufacturer, no matter where the company is from, in terms of security,” he said. “Operators are not stupid. They know they need to build a different layer of security to really cope with these problems.”Still, Dinha acknowledges that lawmakers and national security policy experts have valid concerns about Huawei’s relationship with China, even though the company says it can’t be compelled to spy for the Chinese government. “I’m not saying that you should trust China and simply take their word that they can’t be ordered to do something malicious,” he said. “You shouldn’t. But there are ways to mitigate these risks by building in layers of security.”Huawei’s Purdy said that the company is open to discussing how it can work with US officials to ensure that 5G networks are protected, but so far no one is willing to talk. “Because of the hostility against Huawei, there is a lack of willingness to let the experts talk about the facts,” he said. “There are new standards in risk mitigation capabilities that are out there, we can address the risk.”He said he’s hopeful those lines of communication will open soon. The cost of not doing business with HuaweiDon Morrissey, head of Congressional, State and Local Government Affairs for Huawei, said it’s in the best interest of the US to find a way to work with Huawei. He said that limiting access to an important 5G vendor for equipment will limit competition, which will raise costs for building these networks. Providers will ultimately pass those costs on to consumers. He also added there are other economic concerns as Huawei sources some of its components from US companies.  “We spent $11 billion with American companies last year,” he said. “That’s American companies in Idaho, Wisconsin, Kentucky, Michigan, Arizona, California and New York.”CNET’s Steven Musil contributed to this report.Updated 2:44 pm PT: Added comments from Huawei executives and Francis Dinha of OpenVPN.

Forests in literary imagination

first_imgFrom Snow White to Tarzan, Robin Hood to Alice, Lord Rama to the Pandavas, Ali Baba to Winnie the Pooh, Dorothy (of Oz) to Harry Potter, from works of Shakespeare to Henry David Thoreau, Rudyard Kipling to Bill Bryson and Enid Blyton to Cheryl Strayed, there is one common thread, wholly or partly, to some of our most remembered and favourite literature – forests as a setting for key action.Earth’s dominant terrestrial ecosystem, forests are commonly taken to mean a large area with trees or other woody vegetation though there isn’t any common global definition – 800 definitions are available around the world! What is however more acceptable and indisputable is their role in human imagination and culture, be it folklore, fantastic or legendary, and modern literature, whether children or adult. They can represent a place of refuge or menace, of succour or challenge, of restful contemplation or exciting adventure, a metaphor for nature at its most basic and untrammeled by human civilising, and a source of sustenance – or danger.

As a Shakespearean character ruminates: “And this our life, exempt from public haunt,/Finds tongues in trees, books in the running brooks,/Sermons in stones, and good in everything.”This was the Senior Duke, perfectly content in his exile in the Forest or Arden in “As You Like It” (Act II, Scene 1) but forests are not always that welcoming and instructive for the Bard’s other creations. In “A Midsummer Night’s Dream”, some unwelcome changes afflict various characters, especially poor Nick Bottom in the forest (though everything gets amicably and amenably solved in the end), while in another, the appearance of the Dunsinane forest (or a branch of it, excuse the  Also Read – Leslie doing new comedy special with Netflixpun) before Macbeth’s castle spells his doom!In ancient Hindu epics, Lord Rama and his brother Lakshman first exhibit their mettle by ridding some forests of demons before their eventful exile to the forest, as do the Pandavas who raise their capital after clearing a notorious forest and then spend part of their own exile in forests.But some of the most memorable and universally-known stories set in the woods – Snow White, Rapunzel, Red Riding Hood, Briar Rose, Hansel and Gretel and many more of brave young princes and fair maidens.last_img read more
