Adobe share price slips as Creative Cloud subscribers miss expectation

first_imgThe figuresAdobe’s profits climbed 80 per cent to $84.9m , or 17 cents per share and 44 cents per share on a non-adjusted basis, in the first quarter to February. That was from revenue of $1.11bn which grew 11 per cent on the same quarter last year.Shares fell three per cent in after hours trading despite the figures beating analysts expectations. Why it’s interestingAdobe has moved to a subscription-based model for its creative suite of tools such as Photoshop and Illustrator.Those number grew 28 per cent on the same quarter in 2014,  generating revenue of $713.4m, up 52 per cent on last year.Adding 517,00 new subscribers to Creative Cloud to bring total subscribers to 3.97m was shy of forecasts of 575,000 however.What Adobe said”Adobe Marketing Cloud and Creative Cloud continue to be growth engines for Adobe. We are excited about today’s announcement of the Adobe Document Cloud, which brings innovative new capabilities, including built-in e-signing, to millions of customers, said president and chief executive Shantanu Narayen.In ShortWhile the money was, well, on the money, subscriber growth disappointed making it more difficult to hit its year-end target of six million subscribers. whatsapp More From Our Partners Astounding Fossil Discovery in California After Man Looks‘Neighbor from hell’ faces new charges after scaring off home buyersnypost.comNative American Tribe Gets Back Sacred Island Taken 160 Years Agogoodnewsnetwork.orgMatt Gaetz swindled by ‘malicious actors’ in $155K boat sale boondogglenypost.comPolice Capture Elusive Tiger Poacher After 20 Years of Pursuing the Huntergoodnewsnetwork.orgSupermodel Anne Vyalitsyna claims income drop, pushes for child supportnypost.comRussell Wilson, AOC among many voicing support for Naomi Osakacbsnews.comBrave 7-Year-old Boy Swims an Hour to Rescue His Dad and Little Sistergoodnewsnetwork.orgA ProPublica investigation has caused outrage in the U.S. this Lynsey Barber Adobe share price slips as Creative Cloud subscribers miss expectation Show Comments ▼ Sharecenter_img whatsapp by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeMoneyPailShe Was A Star, Now She Works In ScottsdaleMoneyPailMaternity WeekA Letter From The Devil Written By A Possessed Nun In 1676 Has Been TranslatedMaternity WeekForbesThese 10 Colleges Have Produced The Most Billionaire AlumniForbeszenherald.com20 Rules Genghis Khan’s Army Had To Live Byzenherald.comNoteableyKirstie Alley Is So Skinny Now And Looks Like A BarbieNoteableyMagellan TimesThis Is Why The Roy Rogers Museum Has Been Closed For GoodMagellan TimesPost FunKate & Meghan Are Very Different Mothers, These Photos Prove ItPost FunComedyAbandoned Submarines Floating Around the WorldComedyDefinitionThe Most Famous Movie Filmed In Every U.S. StateDefinition Tags: NULL Tuesday 17 March 2015 5:07 pmlast_img read more

Previewing the Leinster camogie semi-final between O’Moores and Young Irelands Gowran

first_img Community Home GAA Camogie Previewing the Leinster camogie semi-final between O’Moores and Young Irelands Gowran GAACamogieSport Previewing the Leinster camogie semi-final between O’Moores and Young Irelands Gowran Twitter O’Moores of Laois have gone further in the Leinster camogie competition than they have ever done.They are now aiming to go one step further as they take on Young Irelands Gowran of Kilkenny in the Leinster intermediate semi-final this weekend.O’Moores began their Leinster campaign after first defeating Camross in a close-knit battle in O’Moore Park earlier this year.Dermot McGill’s side previously lost to the black and amber during the championship and just squeezed past St Brigid’s in the semi-final to book their place in the final against their familiar final opponents Camross.Mary Keating was pivotal to O’Moores success on the fateful final day, scoring 1-7 of their 1-11 as she stood over frees to bring the O’Moores women over the line and up the steps of O’Moore Park.Mary also received camogie Player of the Year for her efforts, and six representatives from O’Moores were selected in our first ever Team of the Year in camogie.Next for the O’Moores women was Cuala of Dublin in the preliminary round of the Leinster intermediate campaign. They finished victors on a final scoreline 3-8 to 1-9 to book their place in the quarter-final.From here they marched through to the semi-final after defeating Buffers Alley of Wexford 2-10 to 1-3 in Mooncoin, Wexford.Now, they face Kilkenny intermediate champions Young Irelands Gowran this weekend in Rosenallis.Young Irelands, the home of Kilkenny hurling legend DJ Carey, topped their championship group and faced Clara in the intermediate final.They saw off their north Kilkenny opponents by 12 points to 1-3 to head straight into the Leinster semi-final this weekend.The match was originally due to be played two weeks ago, but with the recent death Gerry O’Sullivan, father to O’Moores player Lorna, it was postponed and moved to this weekend.O’Moores currently face injury concerns with captain and full-back Emma McEvoy looking unlikely to play after picking up a knee injury in Sarsfields Leinster semi-final against Milltown.Young Irelands captain Sarah Ann Quinlan looks to be the main attacking threat for the O’Moores side.The centre-forward can score from distance and contributed seven points towards her side’s victory over Clara in the intermediate county final.However, we reckon with the roll O’Moores are currently joining, Sunday could mark the day they face their dream of getting to a Leinster final.Verdict: O’MooresYoung Irelands Gowran, who face O’Moores in the Leinter intermediate semi-final.

TSX shut down; U.S. markets finish flat

first_img TSX gets lift from financials, U.S. markets rise to highest since March Facebook LinkedIn Twitter Canada’s main stock index was shut down early Friday afternoon after technical issues prevented users from accessing the Toronto Stock Exchange, while U.S. markets were mixed.Before an “internal technical issue” prompted the TMX Group to shut down its exchanges at 3 p.m., the latest data reading at 1:39 p.m. showed the S&P/TSX composite index was up 31.34 points to 15,668.93.

The S&P 500 index closed up 2.97 points to 2,669.91 and the Nasdaq composite index closed up 1.12 points to 7,119.80.Earnings season is halfway through and has produced robust results, but it has not been reflected in the equity markets, said Pashootan.“You’re seeing the market take a cautious approach to share price appreciation, despite the fact that the numbers have been strong,” he said. “That speaks to the fact that there is more concern in the market for some of the variables that can cause a selloff.”He said concerns include the 10-year treasury yield creeping above the psychological level of 3% earlier this week, which spooked investors, before retreating slightly towards the end of the week.The competition between stocks and bonds is heating up, he added, while geopolitical concerns continue to stoke concern.“Some new risks, many old risks, but the market is taking a more wait-and-see approach than it has in previous years,” Pashootan said.The Canadian dollar was trading at US77.78¢, up 0.03 of a U.S. cent.The June crude contract was down US9¢ to US$68.10 per barrel and the June natural gas contract was down US7¢ to US$2.77 per mmBTU.The June gold contract was up US$5.50 to US$1,323.40 an ounce and the July copper contract was down US7¢ to US$3.07 a pound. upclose stock market arrows green and red piren/123RFlast_img read more

Seminar to Examine Impact of Reggae on African Liberation Struggle

first_imgRelatedSeminar to Examine Impact of Reggae on African Liberation Struggle Advertisements RelatedSeminar to Examine Impact of Reggae on African Liberation Struggle Seminar to Examine Impact of Reggae on African Liberation Struggle CultureFebruary 24, 2012 By E. Hartman Reckord, JIS PRO FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail The Jamaican High Commission in South Africa will be staging a seminar next Tuesday (February 28) to examine the role of reggae music in the African liberation struggle. The seminar, to be held at the Ditsong National Cultural History Museum in Pretoria, is part of activities by the mission to mark Reggae Month and celebrate Jamaica’s 50th anniversary of Independence. The High Commission is collaborating with the Africa Institute of South Africa and the City of Tshwane in staging the event. Keynote speaker is Chairman of the Board of Directors of the Jamaica Reggae Industry Association and Head of Department at the Edna Manley College of the Visual and Performing Arts, Michael “Ibo” Cooper. Other participants include academics, musicians, and reggae artistes from South Africa and Zimbabwe.  Jamaican High Commissioner to South Africa, Her Excellency Norma Taylor Roberts, told JIS News that an important outcome of the seminar will be documenting the contribution of reggae music to the fight for liberation in Africa. “This is going to be an international event bringing together persons from all over the world to hear and document what reggae music achieved internationally, and particularly on the continent of Africa,” she said, noting that the seminar will examine reggae through “academic means and through historical lenses.” In 2008, the Government of Jamaica officially declared February as Reggae Month to highlight the impact of the musical genre on the country’s social, cultural and economic development. The High Commissioner said ‘Jamaica 50’ activities will help to promote Jamaica and its achievements as well as to strengthen collaboration with South Africa. She said there is strong support for the events to be held. “We are working very closely not only with the local Jamaican community but also with various South African institutions and individuals…those who have been touched by Jamaica’s connections with the history of South Africa,” she told JIS News. “The level of participation that we are getting is really amazing and we have activities planned for the whole year and in fact, we do not even have to call people at this stage. There’s such a level of excitement and buzz that we are being called,” she stated. The Commissioner further mentioned that she recently received a call from a South African company asking how it can partner with the High Commission on “Jamaica Month” activities scheduled to take place in August, which include an Independence Ball and a National Day reception.

Rev. Ronald Thwaites, during the sitting of the House of Representatives on Tuesday, October 14.He noted that this decision is in keeping with the General Powers conferred on the Minister under Part II Section 3 (b) of the Education Act.Under the interim provisions, J-TEC will have responsibility for oversight and regulation, and all new and existing private tertiary level institutions will be required to register with the entity. A national registry of institutions offering tertiary education is being established.“The establishment of the register and the registration of tertiary institutions by J-TEC, operating under the auspices of the Ministry, should result in an improved quality of tertiary level programmes being offered in Jamaica,” Rev. Thwaites said.The Education Minister also informed that J-TEC is implementing other measures necessary for the seamless introduction of the new regulatory regime including the development of the National Qualifications Framework for Jamaica; standards for institutional registration of tertiary-level institutions; and a robust information management system.“These interim measures will remain in place until the enactment of the J-TEC Act, giving the entity the authority to ensure the mandatory registration of all tertiary level institutions, among its other functions,” Rev. Thwaites informed.The implementation of these regulatory measures will ensure that there is a gate-keeper for entry into the tertiary sector in Jamaica, and also improve co-ordination of the sector.Other benefits include: the availability of accurate information on tertiary institutions operating in Jamaica to enable planning, development and improved co-ordination of the sector; a standards-driven internal quality assurance mechanism for all tertiary level institutions operating in Jamaica, thus ensuring internationally competitive quality of all programme offerings by institutions; and enhanced protection of consumers of tertiary educational service, including parents and students.

Los Angeles County uses technology to locate missing seniors

first_imgHomeFeaturedLos Angeles County uses technology to locate missing seniors Apr. 26, 2019 at 5:10 amFeaturedLife MattersNewsLos Angeles County uses technology to locate missing seniorsGuest Author2 years agoAging and Community Services DepartmentAlzheimerautismbraceletdeathdementiadiseaseelectronic braceletLos Angelesnancy paulikasSheriff’s DepartmenttechnologywanderedwomanWorkforce Development A new Los Angeles County program that uses electronic bracelets to find missing people with dementia or autism was launched partly in response to the death of Nancy Paulikas, a 55-year-old woman with Alzheimer’s disease who wandered away from her husband during a visit to a museum.During the desperate search for his wife that began in late 2016, Kirk Moody grew increasingly frustrated by the lack of communication between law enforcement and other agencies.“I called every county office there is,” Moody recalled Wednesday. “And I found myself explaining things over and over because it was clear they weren’t talking to each other.”With Moody’s input, the county started LA Found with the goal of establishing procedures to help police, sheriffs, fire departments, nursing homes and hospitals coordinate during a search.The cornerstone of the program is a system of bracelets voluntarily worn by vulnerable people that can be located using electronic receivers carried in LA County Sheriff’s Department squad cars and helicopters.More than 250 residents have been outfitted since October with the bracelets maintained by Project Lifesaver, a public safety nonprofit. At least four missing people have been located thanks to the technology, including a 53-year-old woman with dementia who wandered away from her family around Christmastime, said Los Angeles County Supervisor Janice Hahn.Wandering is a common problem associated with dementia and autism. According to the Alzheimer’s Association, 60% of people with dementia will wander at some point while a study by the Interactive Autism Network found that 49% of children with autism will engage in wandering behavior.While the vast majority of these individuals are recovered, wandering cases can end in tragedy. Paulikas’ remains were discovered on a hillside in March 2017, five months after she walked away from Moody while the couple explored the Los Angeles County Museum of Art.To prevent similar tragedies, LA Found seeks to have the county’s thousands of employees be “the eyes and ears” during a search, said Hahn, who authored the initiative eventually passed by the Board of Supervisors.“The county has law enforcement, we have our transit systems, we have our county hospital and nursing facilities. We have the coroner on the lookout for a Jane Doe or a John Doe,” Hahn said Wednesday. “And we’re making sure that they’re all talking to each other.”Moody, 60, said he considers the renewed collaborative efforts “a huge victory” and he’s gratified that Paulikas has become the face of the new program.Initial money for the bracelets came from the county, but funding has grown through donations from various state and local organizations.Hahn said she believes the program is the first of its kind in the nation. She said officials from Colorado and other California counties have called expressing interest in replicating it.LA Found is coordinated by the county’s Sheriff’s Department and Workforce Development, Aging and Community Services Department.Tags :Aging and Community Services DepartmentAlzheimerautismbraceletdeathdementiadiseaseelectronic braceletLos Angelesnancy paulikasSheriff’s DepartmenttechnologywanderedwomanWorkforce Developmentshare on Facebookshare on Twitteradd a commentLOS ANGELES – California approves free phones, internet for foster youthLOS ANGELES – Los Angeles County sues utility over fall wildfire damageYou Might Also LikeFeaturedNewsBobadilla rejects Santa Monica City Manager positionMatthew Hall8 hours agoNewsCouncil picks new City ManagerBrennon Dixson19 hours agoFeaturedNewsProtesting parents and Snapchat remain in disagreement over child protection policiesClara Harter19 hours agoFeaturedNewsDowntown grocery to become mixed use developmenteditor19 hours agoNewsBruised but unbowed, meme stock investors are back for moreAssociated Press19 hours agoNewsWedding boom is on in the US as vendors scramble to keep upAssociated Press19 hours agolast_img read more

Judge Rejects Lewis’ Plea; Attorney Files Appeal

first_img A DeKalb County Superior Court judge recently rejected a plea deal involving former DeKalb Superintendent Crawford Lewis. The County District Attorney charged Lewis and two others with racketeering. Judge Cynthia Becker’s decision means the case may not end any time soon.Hear the broadcast version of this story.1:50The deal allowed Lewis to plead guilty to a lesser misdemeanor charge in exchange for testifying against co-defendants Pat Reid and her ex-husband, Tony Pope. Lewis would also receive 12 months’ probation instead of jail time.Judge Becker sentenced Reid and Pope to 15 and 8 years in prison respectively. But she rejected Lewis’ plea and sentenced him to a year in prison. Lewis’ attorney, Michael Brown, was surprised. He says Judge Becker agreed to the terms of the plea before sentencing:“We think that when the District Attorney said that she would accept the recommendation and the judge didn’t challenge that, that confirmed everyone’s understanding that she would accept the recommendation,” Brown said. “So, we are disappointed.”But Atlanta criminal attorney Steve Sadow says the agreement had a reservation clause that said Lewis’ testimony had to be truthful.“The judge, upon hearing his testimony and at the time of sentencing said, ‘I don’t think you have been truthful and, therefore, I am not bound to follow the recommendation that has been agreed to by the parties and presented to the court,’” Sadow says.  Now, it’s unclear when the case will wrap up. Brown is appealing Judge Becker’s decision. Sadow says the appellate court will examine the plea agreement.  “The court of appeals is going to be looking to see whether or not it was clear to the defendant, to Crawford Lewis, that his 12-months’ probation was not a done deal, that there was a caveat, [the] caveat being truthfulness,” he says.  But Brown says it will be about 60 days before the court decides whether to hear the appeal. He says a ruling could take a lot longer than that.“We think if they grant it, the overall resolution could take at least a year for the court to ultimately make a decision.”Until then, Lewis is out on bond.DeKalb District Attorney Robert James had no comment on the case.  Share Legal Advocate Discusses Medical Abuse At Shut Down Georgia ICE Facility 1:50 | Play story Add to My ListIn My List Related Stories ‘It’s Fractured’: Georgia Lt.

Celebrate Gandhi Jayanti with wisdom from dohas of Sant Kabir

first_imgOn this Gandhi Jayanti, may we learn from his ideology, be the change we wish to see and spread NON-VIOLENCE, KINDNESS, LOVE and COMPASSION.Gandhiji said “A coward is incapable of exhibiting love; it is the prerogative of the brave. Fighting is a sign of weakness. Great minds know we are here to play our part, serve others, and leave. Life is short, so don’t feed your anger, because only you will burn.”Ironically, we end up criticizing people whom we love in an attempt to improve them. While the intent is really noble, its results can be mixed.Sant Kabir ji wrote two very intriguing Dohas (couplet) on criticism.निंदक नियरे राखिये, आँगन कुटी छवाय,बिन पानी, साबुन बिना, निर्मल करे सुभाय |Denotes that one should stay close to critics, they help to cleanse our behaviour.तिनका कबहुँ ना निन्दिये, जो पावन तर होय,कबहुँ उडी आँखिन पड़े, तो पीर घनेरी होय |Denotes that one should never criticize even a straw which gets crushed under our feet. If the same fall in your eye, it is very painful.While Kabir ji has advised not to criticize to avoid potential pain it may cause to the person who is criticizing. Also, he advises to accept criticism to cleanse your behaviour.May these help us to avoid criticism and receive it positively to cleanse our behaviour.last_img read more
