Dwell Media Expands Relocates to NYC

first_imgDwell timed the move to facilitate collaboration on a brand refresh, Abrams adds. The company is partnering with its original art director, based in Brooklyn, to redesign its print and digital properties. Dwell also announced the hiring of a new senior editor, William Lamb, who will be based out of the New York office. San Francisco-based Dwell Media, publisher of high-end modern design magazine Dwell, is doubling its office space and moving its creative team to New York City.The move is the final step in a gradual eastward migration for edit and art staff at the company. The magazine, founded in 2000, first started setting up shop in New York two years ago.While about 20 staffers will now be on the East Coast—with more expecting to be added in January—the company’s operations will remain headquartered in San Francisco.”The continuity of a creative team is not to be underestimated,” says Michela O’Connor Abrams, president of Dwell Media. “Because New York is so pivotal in the design world, and given all that Dwell is doing with our new digital team and some other things we [launched], I really felt it was time to get the creative team together.”last_img read more

Cheaper and cleaner electricity from wavepowered ships w video

first_img(PhysOrg.com) — At the Clean Technology 2011 Conference and Expo in Boston, Andre Sharon presented a new concept of using ships equipped with a wave-power system to harvest energy and deliver it back to a power grid on shore. Citation: Cheaper and cleaner electricity from wave-powered ships (w/ video) (2011, July 20) retrieved 18 August 2019 from https://phys.org/news/2011-07-cheaper-cleaner-electricity-wave-powered-ships.html Explore further Traditional wave-power systems are permanently located out in the middle of the ocean and send power back to the energy grid via undersea cables which typically cost $500,000 per kilometer. This new concept would eliminate the need for these costly cables and greatly reduce the cost.The proposed ship would be 50 meters long and is designed to harvest the wave energy through a system of buoys hanging from pivoting arms on the side of the ship. The buoys would bob up and down with the movement of the waves and cause the pivoting arms to drive a generator and create one megawatt of electrical power an hour. The power will be stored in an on-board battery with a capacity of 20 megawatts. The ship will be required to be out at sea for at least 20 hours in order to provide a full charge. Unlike fixed wave-power devices that must be built to withstand high waves and severe storms, these ships would be able to return to shore if conditions at sea were to become extreme. Sharon says this system could be constructed on already existing ships to further reduce costs.Sharon, from Boston University and the Fraunhofer Center for Manufacturing Innovation, used 3D printing to create a prototype and demonstrated it in a wave tank. Current wave-power systems can generate electricity at a cost of between $0.30 and $0.65 per kWh, but Sharon calculates that the wave-power ships would be able to generate power for $0.15 per kWh which is comparable to offshore wind energy and cheaper than solar power.

Alphabet Becomes Most Valuable US Company Gmail Hits 1 Billion Users

first_img Alphabet Inc easily beat Wall Street’s quarterly profit forecasts on Monday, helped by strong mobile advertising sales, sending the shares of Google’s parent higher in after-hours trading to surpass Apple Inc as the most valuable U.S. company.For the first time, the company disclosed the profitability of Google’s search engine and its other online services, and how much it is spending on ambitious technology projects such as self-driving cars.The numbers were lapped up by investors, who saw room for growth in Google’s traditional business, and were relieved to see that spending on new projects it calls ‘Other Bets’ was not as lavish as some had feared.”It’s pretty interesting that 80 percent of YouTube views come from outside of the United States. I didn’t think it would be that high,” said Kevin Kelly, managing partner at Recon Capital. “It demonstrates that the value of YouTube can continue to be extracted,” he said.The operating profit margin for its Google unit was 31.9 percent in the most recent quarter, compared to 25 percent for Alphabet.Alphabet spent $869 million on capital expenditures for the Other Bets in 2015, up from $501 million in 2014. It has not made any projections about if or when those bets cumulatively would become profitable.”As long as the core business continues to operate well with accelerated revenue… investment in those businesses can continue,” said Ronald Josey of JMP Securities.The company said consolidated revenue jumped 17.8 percent to $21.33 billion in the fourth quarter ended Dec. 31, from $18.10 billion a year earlier. Analysts had expected $20.77 billion, according to Thomson Reuters I/B/E/S.Revenue for Other Bets was $151 million, up 29.8 percent from $106 million in the same quarter last year, primarily from its smart-home monitoring unit Nest, Google Fiber, which provides high-speed Internet access, and its life sciences business Verily.Adjusted earnings of $8.67 per share handily beat analysts’ average estimate of $8.10 per share.In a call with analysts, Chief Financial Officer Ruth Porat attributed the strong earnings to “increased use of mobile search by consumers,” as well as “ongoing momentum” in YouTube and programmatic advertising, referring to the automatic buying of ads.Kelly at Recon Capital said he would not be surprised if YouTube saw a surge in advertising revenues beyond the 17 percent increase it saw during the 2015 fiscal year.Total operating losses on the Other Bets – which include glucose-monitoring contact lenses and Internet balloons – increased to $3.57 billion in the 12 months ended Dec. 31, and $1.2 billion in the fourth quarter.The Google unit houses its Internet and related businesses such as search, ads, maps, YouTube and Android as well as hardware products such as its low-cost Chromebook laptops.Google Chief Executive Sundar Pichai said on the call that its Gmail service crossed one billion monthly active users last quarter, joining Search, Android, Maps, Chrome, YouTube and Google Play in topping that mark.He also touted the company’s performance during the holiday shopping season, saying that programmatic video impressions doubled this season compared to last, and that 60 percent of them came from mobile devices.But Porat, without providing figures, said the company planned to accelerate capital expenditures in 2016 compared to the previous year.Google’s shares rose almost 5 percent in after-hours trading. Alphabet’s combined share classes were worth $549 billion, compared with Apple, which had a value of about $534 billion.Alphabet will officially overtake Apple in market value if both companies’ shares open around current levels on Tuesday.Google’s advertising revenue increased nearly 17 percent to $19.08 billion, while the number of ads, or paid clicks, rose 31 percent, the company said. Analysts had expected paid clicks to increase 21.8 percent.Advertisers pay Google only if someone clicks on their ad.Net income in the fourth quarter rose to $4.92 billion, or $7.06 per Class A and B share and Class C capital stock, from $4.68 billion, or $6.79 per share.
