Police 'should be neutral' in sex abuse inquiries, says Met head - BBC News
Whitehall / Celebrities / &! among others. // The NSPCC said it was "deeply disturbed" by the suggested change of police approach to sexual abuse victims. "At a time when people have at long last found the confidence and courage to report these crimes it would be a tragedy to bring this progress to a juddering halt. "Telling those who have been sexually abused they will no longer be automatically believed seems to be a panic measure which could have an adverse effect on a crime the government has classified as a 'national threat.'"

An Analysis Of Zirtual’s Reality And The Perils Of Debt | TechCrunch
[ SEC filings show it wanted to raise lots more money ] Think about the implications of this for a moment: we know the company wanted $2.75 million in June, and got most of it. But we also know that 35 days later, Zirtual had been looking for another $3 million, and only got $650,000. That is a meaningful shortfall, an 80% difference between the money they needed and the money they got. [...] In fact, you might have concluded they were in for some kind of serious financing and operational problem weeks in advance [ talked also in Jason's interview that they still have legacy customers who cost them too much but are sort of still keep on: book 'hard things about hard things'], when you connect the fairly clear dots between two attempts to raise capital within a month of each other, and which are increasingly unsuccessful. [...] We’re not talking about an equity financing here, we’re talking about debt. [...] debt is a harsh mistress, especially for a startup tech company.

Inside Dropbox’s Sales Culture — The Information
As a result of his hiring, several former Salesforce executives identified with the old-fashioned approach have been pushed a layer down on the organizational chart, below Mr. Hansen. And the company has sent the signal that in the future, Dropbox will put more emphasis on landing so-called “channel” deals, where partners like Japan’s Softbank and Dell help sell Dropbox for Business. At Microsoft, Mr. Hansen oversaw $6 billion to $9 billion worth of similar deals, a person familiar with the company said. [...] Its success in generating a sustainable profit will determine whether it can go from being a big unicorn to an even more valuable public company.

Do You Trust Larry Page? - Stratechery by Ben Thompson
Given the fact that Alphabet née Google is the second most valuable enterprise in the world, it’s striking to consider Larry Page’s 2014 assessment of the company he co-founded with Sergey Brin: I think we’ve not succeeded as much as we’d like. [...] Even Google’s famously far-reaching mission statement, to “organise the world’s information and make it universally accessible and useful”, is not big enough for what he now has in mind. The aim: to use the money that is spouting from its search advertising business to stake out positions in boom industries of the future, from biotech to robotics. [...] Googles non-social approach to advertising vs Facebook and everyone else ] [ ad world begins finally to shift away from TV & other legacy forms & FB/Google are main beneficiaries coming years of changing ad spend ] [ Page/Brin want 2 lead the org 2 a new frontier.

Symantec Uncovers Sophisticated, Stealthy Computer Spying Tool | Re/code
Symantec say they have discovered a sophisticated piece of malware circulating the world that appears to be used for spying at Internet service and telecommunications companies, and was likely created by a government agency.

[...] The quality of Regin’s design and the investment required to create it is such that it was almost certainly made by a nation-state, - &! 2 days later - "Complex malware known as Regin is the suspected technology behind sophisticated cyberattacks conducted by U.S. and British intelligence agencies on the European Union and a Belgian telecommunications company, according to security industry sources and technical analysis conducted by The Intercept." << NSA/GCHQ not only watch over Angela Merkel's phone.

Lügenforscher Klaus Fiedler über Zabels Dopingbeichte - SPIEGEL ONLINE
Fiedler: Aber nur so funktioniert unsere Gesellschaft. Das moderne Transparenzdenken ist mutig und gut, aber sicher nicht immer dem zwischenmenschlichen Frieden zuträglich. Schauen Sie sich doch Edward Snowden an, der sich getraut hat, dunkle Geheimnisse nach außen zu tragen. Er wird gejagt. [...] Ich glaube, man solte das Verhalten der Sportler im Umgang mit der Wahrheit vor allem strategisch verstehen. Natürlich geht es bei diesen Strategien um die eigene Existenz, oft um viel Geld. [...] Armstrong hat meiner Meinung nach im Januar nicht alles gestanden, weil ihm danach war, sondern weil es um Millionenbeträge ging und seine Berater und Anwälte mit ihm und allen Beteiligten diese Strategie ausgeheckt hatten. Die Menschen im Hintergrund geben die kommunizierte Wahrheit viel öfter vor, als wir denken. [...] +

JAN ULLRICH - Das graue Schaf
Betrügerische System von allen Beteiligten um des Erfolgs willen gestützt wurde, ist kaum von der Hand zu weisen [...] das gnadenlose System des Profiradsports, in dem alle verbotene Substanzen nehmen, in dem alle einander betrügen und deshalb keiner sich als Betrüger sieht, sondern nur als Wahrer seiner Chancengleichheit. Den Blick auf den Radsport wollte er verändern; [...] "Ich habe niemanden betrogen, weil alle Betrüger waren." [...] Auch Sponsoren, Medien und nicht zuletzt die Zuschauer seien Teil des Systems: Die ungeheuerlichen Leistungen, die sie verlangten, seien ohne Hilfsmittel nicht zu erbringen. [...] Bei den Profis werde man allerdings von Verbandsärzten und Trainern, auch von Kollegen, nach und nach an Hilfsmittel herangeführt. >> Difference to Triathlon / Ironman :: Die Zielliene ist das Ziel.

Spanien will mit Doping-Image aufräumen - Radsport - Mehr -
Oeffentlicher Doping Kampf in Spanien? Vielleicht. Aber intern, nie. Spaniens Sporthelden und Idole (Fussball, Tennis, Olympia) stehen im Schatten. Im Doping Schatten. U.a. weil diese selbst wissen was passiert wenn Fuentes redet, order zum reden gezwungen wird. Der Verdacht bleibt beim interresierten Sportzuschauer, dass Sporthelden und Idole der Justiz und der Politik ein paar Saetze zugezwitchert hatten - die den Prozess Verlauf und Ausgang in ihrem Sinne beguenstigt hat. Punkt.

After Scandal Trial, Fuentes wants to sell the truth.
So far up to 100,000E offered for Fuentes' explanation. Hints at Olympians back to LA '84, London marathon, football teams. Nervous anyone? [ ] >> It would be devastating for Spain if this man talks for money, but isn't asked to talk in-front of Judge & Jury. One of the greatest cover-up operations (by Spanish Highballers) in European Sports is unfolding. If Spanish Football is offering him to be silent. Well, the whole truth will never come out and the doubt about Sports History 'was it clean?' will remain. Same now for Spanish Football 'dominated European and World Football Scene for +10 years'. There is a HUGE shadow over the question whether or not it was all legitimate. Even hinting at LA84 Olympics, one could imagine that doping was systematic via Spanish Olympic Org.

BBC Sport - Spain's Operacion Puerto to inflict more embarrassment on cycling
the fact so many were able to get away with cheating speaks volumes of an ambivalence towards doping


When asked by Le Monde journalist Stephane Mandard on Monday if he was going to "tell all", Fuentes said: "I don't intend to name any of my clients. For me, that's the past." [...]

"I do not want to be a hero or a martyr. This is a huge hypocrisy," Fuentes told Mandard. There are many of his compatriots who will be delighted he feels that way.

Morgan Stanley at Brink Got $107B From Fed - Bloomberg

Hedge Funds pulled money out ... out of banks who facilitate their trades.
Prime brokers facilitate short trades, the sale of borrowed stock in the hope of buying it back later at a lower price. They also make margin loans to finance stock purchases. In exchange, hedge funds usually keep their cash and stock in accounts at the prime-brokerage companies.

“So if clients pulled their money out, the view was that money had not been lent out, so the cash would have been sitting there able to hand over. It turns out that that was not entirely correct.”

In reality, “prime brokers were able to reuse clients’ assets to raise cash for their own activities,” the financial crisis commission wrote in its final report, published in January. Azarchs said that in her years covering Morgan Stanley for S&P she never heard executives discuss the risk that the funding might evaporate.

Talking Business - The Real Reason for Ousting H.P.s Chief -
in recent internal surveys, nearly two-thirds of H.P. employees said they would leave if they got an offer from another company — a staggering number. “He didn’t have the support of his people,” Mr. Enderle said. Although he was good at “holding executives’ feet to the fire, he seemed to be the only one benefiting from H.P.’s success,” Mr. Enderle continued. “He alienated himself from the people who might have protected him.”

Mr. Hurd was systematically destroying what had always made H.P. great. The way H.P. made its numbers, Mr. House said, was not just cutting any old costs, but by “chopping R.&D.,” which had always been sacred at H.P. The research and development budget used to be 9 percent of revenue, Mr. House told me; now it was closer to 2 percent. “In the personal computer group, it is seven-tenths of 1 percent,” he added. “That’s why H.P. had no response to the iPad.”

CEO / leader who is busy chopping the future is also posting fabulous short-term profits.
