  1. Twitter co-founder and CEO Jack Dorsey may not be the most vibrant public figure out there, but he surely comes across as the finest Steve Jobs-level tech-wiz with top-class leadership qualities. Time and again, through various means and approaches, Jack Dorsey has shown the world that running a successful business takes much more than just establishing it. Great organizations of this world are built upon strong ethics and ideologies which thrive on consumer satisfaction provided through high employee engagement and happiness index. © Twitter/ajplus And the Twitter CEO isnât just a man good with words, but also knows how to walk the talk and lead the way. Here are 7 such reasons which prove Jack Dorsey might just be the coolest boss out there that all of us need: 1. He Actually Cares About His Employeesâ WelfareHours ago, Jack Dorsey made headlines for sending his Twitter employees an email which said that they can continue to work from home as long as they want, even after the pandemic is over. So, basically what that means is, âif our employees are in a role and situation that enables them to work from home and they want to continue to do so forever, we will make that happen.â © Twitter Complex I mean, which other CEO would even consider such a move even if they get the chance? Think about it, Iâll wait. 2. He Is Least Bothered About His âAppraisalsâJack Dorsey is known to have taken just $1.40 as his base salary since 2018 - forgoing any increment or extra remuneration. However, keeping in mind that the total compensation of Twitter's median compensated employee was $213,155 in 2019, an employee to CEO pay ratio is less than 0.001. © BCCL While his employees continue to get their dues for their services year after year, the Twitter CEO hasnât claimed any benefits for himself and continues to work for his company and its future every day. 3. He Leads The Way By Setting ExamplesAmid the ongoing COVID-19 crisis, Jack Dorsey has gone out of his way to ensure that he takes effective personal measures to help the world fight the pandemic. The man swore off â28% of (his) wealthâ, that is $1,000 million, to aid the fight against coronavirus and build a better future. © Twitter/nnavinsingh21 So, before calling people to donate whatever is in their power, Dorsey is doing his bit to encourage others. So far, he has donated $2.1 million to the Mayorâs Fund for LA towards domestic violence victims, pledged $10 million to REFORM Alliance which will help provide 10 million face masks and other PPEs for inmates, officers, health care workers and other prison employees. © Twitter/CBSNews The Twitter CEO has also donated $15 million to San Franciscoâs COVID-19 Response and Recovery Fund, to help people and businesses impacted by the pandemic. Apart from all that, Dorsey has also donated $750K to Eminemâs Marshall Mathers foundation which works to help the youth in Detroit. 4. He Teaches His Team (& Others) To Have Faith In Their ProductNo company, however strong, can sustain itself in the long run if the ones who are working in it donât have faith in its potential and future. Similarly, Jack Dorsey, who also happens to be the founder and CEO of mobile payments company Square, has shown his team that trusting their own product is crucial. © Twitter/DatHaxor By regularly buying Bitcoin worth $10,000 every week, and maxing out his Bitcoin buys on Cash App, a subsidiary of Square, Jack Dorsey is encouraging his employees and customers to have faith in their products and services. And thatâs just one such instance. 5. He Welcomes Criticism & FeedbackWe all know how welcome any form of criticism or feedback is to most bosses. But thatâs not the case with Jack Dorsey. According to reports, earlier this year, the Twitter CEO made a video call to tech giant Elon Musk during a staff meeting to take âdirect feedbackâ and âcritiqueâ on Twitter from the man himself. © Twitter/nypost According to SkyNews, Dorsey asked, "Give us some direct feedback, critique, what are we doing poorly, what could we be doing better, and what's your hope for our potential as a service?" He further added, "If you were running Twitter - by the way do you want to run Twitter? What would you do?" © Twitter/Recode Musk gave him an honest response and said that it would be âhelpful to differentiateâ between real and fake (bots and organised trolls) accounts. "How do you tell if the feedback is real or someone trying to manipulate the system? ...Sometimes it can be very difficult to figure out what's real public opinion and what's not.â By encouraging an open feedback/criticism session during a staff meeting, Dorsey imbibed a good culture within his team and encouraged his employees to work with an open mind, accept criticisms and improve as they go.

  2. After a successful 2019, studded with flagship killers, a music concert and pop-up events, OnePlus is now in the news for being the first smartphone manufacturer to have 5G support across a full product line up. On 12th March 2020, OnePlus CEO Pete Lau confirmed that its next product series will include a full lineup of 5G devices, further solidifying OnePlus as a pioneer in ushering in the 5G era. We're going all in on 5G. You in? pic.twitter.com/liO2wVIsf9 â Pete Lau (@PeteLau) March 10, 2020 This development stands extremely relevant to todayâs customer base where thereâs a rising demand for data communication â be it for streaming movies, music, playing online games, conference calls, and other data-intensive services. OnePlus Phones & 5G Currently, the company has two 5G compatible phones in the market â OnePlus 7 Pro which was launched in the UK and US last year, and a special McLaren edition of the OnePlus 7T Pro. Apart from this, the next-gen phones - OnePlus 8, Oneplus 8 Pro and OnePlus 8 Lite which are slated to launch in mid-April this year will be centred around 5G. The upcoming OnePlus 8 series will be equipped with Qualcomm's latest flagship SoC, the Snapdragon 865 and the Snapdragon X55 modem. New mid-range OnePlus phone leaks, could be OnePlus 8 Lite https://t.co/qSYEeP6jrQ â Android Authority (@AndroidAuth) December 7, 2019 With futuristic technology coming to our fingertips, itâs only natural to worry about soaring prices. But, while Pete Lau did mention that weâre likely to see a more expensive âProâ version, the regular OnePlus 8 will be manufactured at an affordable price with relatively modest tech specs. Massive Investments In The 5G Sector True to its motto of âNever Settle,â the brand has been investing in 5G since 2016 now, and is working on developing application scenarios like cloud gaming, cloud videos, and cloud storage services which would be a big boon for tech-savvy customers of today. The OnePlus 5G labs are located in Taipei and Shenzhen where research is carried out in areas of radio frequency (RF) circuits, antennasâ¯and multi-media (camera, audio, and display). The labs also conduct software research for communication protocol, optimization, performance, power, stability and user scenario testing. Games on demand âï¸ð® Eye-popping UHD streaming ð Lightning-quick downloads â¡â¬ï¸ Unlock the power of #5G with OnePlus. pic.twitter.com/nv6TzWdBmO â OnePlus (@oneplus) March 12, 2020 OnePlus is also conducting 5G testing efforts in the R&D center, Hyderabad, India, which was established last year. "âWeâve been investing in 5G for several years and we see this as the direction going forward and one weâre very much committed to", Lau said. One can look back and smile at the days when â5G compatible phonesâ were a far-fetched thought. Rumours are rife that OnePlus will roll out the 5G compatible â8 seriesâ around 16th April 2020.

  3. ?Pakistan?s National Accountability Bureau should immediately release Mir Shakil-ur-Rehman and drop the obviously drummed-up case against him,? said Steven Butler, CPJ?s Asia program coordinator. ?This arrest over a 34-year-old land deal makes a mockery of Pakistan?s claim to be a democracy that upholds freedom of the press.?
  4. CEO Mark Triggon, previously the chief merchandising officer at Target, laid out his plans to turn around the beleaguered American retailer Bed Bath & Beyond. Part of that plan was reducing the number of can openers from 12 to 3. Sales rose. In an interview with The Wall Street Journal, Mr. Tritton explained how tests conducted in his first few months at the company showed that less is more when it comes to product assortment. “The big takeaway: Selling too many items in stores that are overcrowded leads to ‘purchase paralysis,” Mr. Tritton said. Bed Bath & Beyond exploded across the American landscape in the 1990s and 2000’s with its focus on opening new “big box” stores for home merchandise where it was meant to be a category killer – consumers would shop in stores that offered them anything and everything. It was famous for its floor-to-ceiling options, and a simple trip for a new shower curtain turned into a shopping spree for every room in the home. In recent years though, that approach has soured on consumers. A Business Insider reporter commented on her latest trip, “From our first steps in, the store was overwhelming. There was merchandise packed top to bottom on shelves that lined every wall.” The tides have changed. Consumers are being offered – and overwhelmed – with more choices than ever before. PARADOX OF CHOICE One of the great benefits of the modern web is a proliferation of choice: choice in sprawling ideologies, choice in niche interests, and choice in shopping for thousands of products at a click of a button. All of this, every day. Unfortunately, that abundance of choice can stress and even paralyze our ability to make decisions. Psychologist Barry Schwartz coined the term Paradox of Choice in a 2004 book by the same name, where he advanced the idea that eliminating consumer choices can reduce anxiety for shoppers. In other words, instead of offering 12 options for can openers, offer 3 options. What does this mean for online communities? LESS IS MORE Across the spectrum of communities and forums, some of the biggest critical mistakes are forum creep and feature bloat. New features are mindlessly added thinking it will lead to higher engagement, new forums are added for every conceivable discussion, and design choices are automatically enabled at the default without aligning to your strategy. Your initial goal is to sweep through your entire community and identify the areas that align with your community strategy. For categories and boards that are low-value, low traffic, or not aligned with any strategic objectives, you should aggressively consolidate or eliminate. There’s no hard rule when it comes to design choices, although 7 has been touted as a magic number for short-term human memory. You can use this magic number across a range of design decisions. For example: At most 7 Reactions At most 7 Primary Menu options At most 7 major sections or content hubs THE JAM EXPERIMENT Choice overload can actually lead to less sales. In 2000, psychologists Sheena Iyengar of Columbia University and Mark Lepper of Stanford University led a much-recited study where they presented passerbys at a food market with two tables: one with 24 fruit jams, the other with 6 jams. The one with 24 different jams generated more traffic to sample and taste. But guess which table generated more sales? The other table with fewer jams, which had ten times more purchases! The moral of the story? At junctures of your member journey where you ask users to make a critical decision such as user information when registering, subscriptions, or selling products, don’t be the table with 24 jams to sample, but never able to sell. BIG BOX & SMALL BOX Invision Community offers an interesting approach where you can act like both a “big box” community for your general audience and still offer “small box” cohesiveness for more intimate groups. The feature is called Clubs, which empowers smaller groups to form and split off from the main audience. This is an especially consequential feature for mature and large communities looking to organically cultivate their next generation of engagement. Indeed, this is a trend happening in a large way among next-gen consumers, who are realizing the perils of broadcasting and oversharing. In a 2019 white paper “The New Rules of Social” led by youth creative agency ZAK, nearly two-thirds of the under-30 respondents said they prefer to talk in private message rather than open forums and feeds. Facebook themselves launched head-first towards social groups back in 2016 after the US Presidential election. In a 6,000 word essay called "Building Global Community," Zuckerberg sermonized on the importance of building connections in meaningful groups: Forum administrators on Invision Community have been building meaningful communities since day one. When properly deployed, Clubs will allow you to cultivate – and retain – users in a more focused environment without the distractions of your larger community. CONCLUSION For community managers and forum administrators who have run their Invision Communities for many years, you know first-hand that the power of community doesn’t come from adding another feature, another board, or another category. Happiness and fulfillment come from actually connecting with members, through education, enlightenment, problem solving, and teamwork. Overloading your community with theme options, excess reactions, and overbuilt boards get in the way of your true goal. Become the CEO to reduce the overwhelming options of can openers. Sell more jam by offering less of it. And unfetter yourself from unnecessary choices to discover a clearer connection to your members. Executive Summary Bed Bath & Beyond CEO declutters stores, sales rise Concept of paradox of choice: users can become overwhelmed and stressed when presented with too many options Jam experiment: table with more jams gets more traffic, but table of less jams gets more sales For large and established communities, use Clubs to offer intimate and uncluttered experiences.
  5. It's one thing to be a fan of someone's work and a completely different thing to cross the limits and become the "creepy guy" in the news. Well, Rakesh Sharma chose to be the latter. He's now being asked to stay at least 200 yards away from the Apple's CEO Tim Cook. Who Is This Rakesh Sharma? Rakesh Sharma, who likes to go by the name "Rocky" is a San Francisco resident. Honestly, the details about this 41-year-old man are quite scarce at the moment, but we do know a lot about the things he has done. View the full article

  8. Photo provided by: PIA spokespersonThe Supreme Court on Tuesday rejected Air Marshal Arshad Malik’s plea seeking the court’s intervention in allowing him to continue as Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of the Pakistan International Airlines (PIA). The PIA chief had approached the apex court against the Sindh High Court's order which had stopped him from performing his functions as the airliner's CEO. In today’s hearing, Chief Justice Gulzar Ahmed remarked that PIA was not someone’s private property, and reminded the petitioner that the airline was a national asset. “We will not allow anyone to play with PIA’s fortune,” remarked Justice Ahmed, and questioned how the national flag carrier was being run. The chief justice also remarked that a case regarding the appointments in the PIA was already filed as a human rights case. The apex court while disposing off the petition said that all cases related to the PIA will be merged into a single case. The bench also summoned the record of the pending case in the SHC. The apex court directed the PIA's board of governors to run the the affairs of the airline. Case against Arshad Malik's qualificationOn December 31, the SHC had barred Malik from discharging his duties as CEO on a petition filed by Safdar Anjum, the general secretary of the airline's Senior Staff Association (SASA). The petition stated Malik did not fulfill the educational requirements of the post neither did he have any relevant experience for the job. The court also stopped the airline from transferring, hiring or firing employees. The high court also stopped the PIA from buying or selling assets. The bench said the national flag bearer could not sell assets worth over rupees one crore or make policies. Before joining the PIA, Malik was serving as the Vice Chief of the Air Staff. He is a graduate of the National Defence University (NDU) and qualified in Air Command and Staff Course from the US. Malik has served for more than 40 years in the Pakistan Air Force (PAF) before he was appointed as the airline's chief executive officer. He was appointed as PIA chairman on October 11, 2018, by the federal government. On April 2, 2019, he was appointed the national flag carrier’s CEO.

  10. Boeing Co Chief Executive Dennis Muilenburg testifies before the House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee — during a hearing in the wake of deadly crashes — on Capitol Hill in Washington, US, October 30, 2019. REUTERS/Sarah Silbiger/FilesBoeing Co has ousted Chief Executive Dennis Muilenburg in an attempt by the world’s biggest plane-maker to restore confidence as a prolonged crisis has seen it halt production of its best-selling 737 MAX jetliner following two fatal crashes. Monday’s sacking coincides with Boeing struggling to mend relations with the regulators it needs to win over to get the grounded 737 back in the air. It also needs to regain trust with passengers and airline customers. Chairman David Calhoun will take over as CEO and president, effective from January 13, Boeing said. “The Board of Directors decided that a change in leadership was necessary to restore confidence in the Company moving forward as it works to repair relationships with regulators, customers, and all other stakeholders,” it said in a statement. Muilenburg could not immediately be reached for comment. Boeing shares, which have dropped more than 20 percent over the past nine months, rose nearly 4 percent in early trading. The ousting of the company veteran followed a week of dramatic setbacks for Boeing, from a decision to halt production of the 737, to a public slap-down from the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), a ratings downgrade and a space launch glitch on Friday. One source close to Boeing, which vies with Europe’s Airbus for industry supremacy, said the company needed to turn the corner and regain its stride as it faces what is widely seen as the worst crisis in its more than 100-year history. The 737 MAX has been grounded since March after two crashes in Indonesia and Ethiopia killed 346 people within five months. Boeing said this month it would halt production of the jets in January, a decision that also threatens to hit the US economy. Economists estimate it will lower overall American economic growth by half a percentage point. Aerospace analyst Richard Aboulafia of Teal Group said Calhoun, who previously served as head of Blackstone Group’s private equity portfolio operation, would provide short-term stability, but not the long-term “emphasis on engineering” the company needed. “Calhoun is respected in the industry,” Aboulafia said. “But long-term, does he bring the right tool kit? Private equity leans companies out. That’s not Boeing’s problem right now.” Boeing — which has taken flak from the FAA for appearing to pressure the regulator by predicting when the planes would return to the air — pledged full transparency, including “effective and proactive communication” with regulators. Analysts at British-based Redburn said Muilenburg’s dismissal suggested Boeing’s relationship with the FAA was “at its nadir and should improve from here”. Phone callMuilenburg is owed more than $6.6 million in the event of a “lay off,” according to Boeing’s shareholder proxy statement. But it was not clear if his departure would qualify as a dismissal “for cause,” where most severance payouts would be considered void. The CEO, an engineer who started at Boeing as an intern in 1985, fought a rising tide of public and regulatory scrutiny to try to steady the company during the crisis. He acknowledged errors in failing to give pilots more information on a stall-prevention system before the crashes and for taking months to disclose that it had made optional an alarm that alerts pilots to a mismatch of flight data on the 737 MAX. “We’ve made mistakes and we got some things wrong. We’re improving and we’re learning,” he told US lawmakers at a hearing in October. Speculation that he would be fired had been circulating in the industry for months, intensifying in October when the board stripped him of his chairman title - although he had also twice won expressions of confidence from Calhoun. A Boeing official said the board deliberated over the weekend and decided to oust Muilenburg in a phone call on Sunday. In keeping Muilenburg in the job as long as Boeing has, the company was ignoring elements of the classic crisis communications playbook used by other companies, said Paul Argenti, a professor at Dartmouth’s Tuck School of Business. “You want to bring somebody from the outside to bring fresh perspective to ‘save the day,’” Argenti said. “He should have been gone a long time ago. He is part of the problem.” Board member and former airline boss Lawrence Kellner will become non-executive chairman of the board effective immediately, Boeing said. Chief Financial Officer Greg Smith will serve as interim CEO during the brief transition period.

  12. Until a few hours ago, Sundar Pichai was known as the CEO of Google. But, now he will also be known as the CEO of Alphabet, after co-founders Larry Page and Sergey Brin stepped down from their posts.' In a letter bidding goodbye to their managerial roles, Larry Page and Sergey Brin wrote "While it has been a tremendous privilege to be deeply involved in the day-to-day management of the company for so long, we believe it's time to assume the role of proud parents — offering advice and love, but not daily nagging!" © Reuters And with that, the 47-year-old IIT Kharagpur alumni became the CEO of Google's parent company as well and left the whole country beaming with pride. Page and Brin will continue to remain board members and shareholders of the company. I'm excited about Alphabet's long term focus on tackling big challenges through technology. Thanks to Larry & Sergey, we have a timeless mission, enduring values and a culture of collaboration & exploration - a strong foundation we'll continue to build on https://t.co/tSVsaj4FsR — Sundar Pichai (@sundarpichai) December 4, 2019 Pichai wrote a letter for other employees where he spoke about how change has been the only thing constant in his 15+ years in Google. According to Pichai, this change has come 15 years after he first met Page and Brin. He wrote, "I first met Larry and Sergey back in 2004 and have been benefiting from their guidance and insights ever since. The good news is I'll continue to work with them -- although in different roles for them and me. They'll still be around to advise as board members and co-founders." © Reuters He further added, "The founders have given all of us an incredible chance to have an impact on the world. Thanks to them, we have a timeless mission, enduring values, and a culture of collaboration and exploration that makes it exciting to come to work every day. It's a strong foundation on which we will continue to build. Can't wait to see where we go next and look forward to continuing the journey with all of you." While it's great news for Pichai, no one is happier than desi people who have flooded social media with congratulatory messages for him. Well, we can understand their excitement, this news brings hope to all the desi engineers. India's most robust export product is probably the 'Global CEO.'

  13. Everyone knows who Jeff Bezos is, right? One of the richest men in the world, Amazon CEO, a really big deal? Well, turns out, some people have no clue. Bezos' recent visit to a company-funded computer science class at Dunbar High School in Washington, DC and his interaction with the students there, has now gone viral on the internet. In the video, Bezos is seen talking to the students about Amazon's 'Future Engineer Programmes' which funds the students for courses around the US and while this was happening, a student was seen asking, "who's Jeff Bezos?" twice to another student who was sitting right behind him. Jeff Bezos may be one of the most well-known CEOs in the world, but for this kid, he is just another man. The video was posted by NBC Washington's Caroline Tucker and she tweeted, “This morning @amazon is at Dunbar High School in DC to announce a milestone in its Future Engineer Program. They had a surprise guest... Jeff Bezos. Watch the full video here- This morning @amazon is at Dunbar High School in DC to announce a milestone in its Future Engineer Program. They had a surprise guest....Jeff Bezos. @nbcwashington pic.twitter.com/dmOvmeJ4Fv — Caroline Tucker (@CTuckerNews) October 21, 2019 However, something even more interesting happened after the kid found out who Bezos is. When the teenager got to know that Bezos is the CEO of one of the largest companies in the world, he turned around saying, “Big deal, so what?” Umm...okay! We all want to attain the level of chill this kid has. Caroline Tucker also wrote, “The young man in the class ended up being the only one who spoke to Jeff Bezos about how much he has learned about coding. Later on, he told me he wanted to “seize” the opportunity to talk to the CEO.” FYI...the young man in the class ended up being the only one who spoke to Jeff Bezos about how much he has learned about coding. Later on, he told me he wanted to “seize” the opportunity to talk to the CEO. @nbcwashington pic.twitter.com/E8LoFv2o99 — Caroline Tucker (@CTuckerNews) October 22, 2019 According to the New York Post, the teacher of the class said that only about three students in her class knew who he was when he entered the classroom. Here's what the netizens have to say about it- If he's not an Instagram "influencer" how will the kids know about him? Maybe we need a shot of @JeffBezos on the beach in a bikini for the kids to show interest — Tony Singh (@singhton) October 21, 2019 Human... I think the bigger issue is with the education system. Why aren't kids being inspired to be the next Jeff Bezo — Mary Oliver (@MaryOli16643592) October 22, 2019 People is judging the kid, but he is there to learn and maybe high-tech celebrities are not on his wish list. — Julio Acevedo (@Juliomace23) October 22, 2019 Bezos, who owns the Washington Post, is the richest man in the world with an estimated net worth of despite a huge divorce settlement with ex-wife MacKenzie Bezos worth $35.6 billion in Amazon stock -- making her one of the top five richest women in the world and one of Amazon's largest shareholders. Bezos has an estimated net worth of $110 billion, do we really need to say more? So, in case you don't know who Jeff Bezos is, it's time you Google him.
  14. As the next year draws closer, several of us are looking forward to that little extra edge on our payroll. Although you're unlikely to impress your company as much as Satya Nadella has in his five years at Microsoft. After the company smashed through a $1 trillion capital value and stole the tech crown back from Apple, he's been awarded for his efforts with a 66% hike and a Rs 7 Cr bonus - amounting to a grand total of just over Rs 305 Crore for 2019. © Reuters That's a lot of crores. The annual report states, "In reviewing Mr. Nadella's annual equity compensation, the independent members of our Board recognized the benefit of Mr. Nadella's proficiency as CEO, as demonstrated by Microsoft's achievements during his tenure." Nadella has been the catalyst of many powerful changes in Microsoft's business and development ecosystem. One of his biggest moves was focusing on cloud computing through Microsoft's Azure platform and the success of Windows 10. When Nadella joined the company in 2014, its valuation was somewhere around $302 billion - a number that skyrocketed to $1.075 trillion in just five years. © Reuters It's an even more impressive feat considering the state of Microsoft back in 2014. After several botched investments, an unsuccessful mobile platform and the bug-filled disaster that was the Windows 8, Nadella didn't exactly inherit a 100% healthy business when he took the wheel from ex-CEO Steve Ballmer. Through cross-platform innovations, great support and a truly next-generation emphasis on computing, it seems like Nadella's story with Microsoft is just beginning, and promises to give Apple a run for its money.
  15. What started out as a small YouTube channel meant to talk about social and political issues of the country, All India Bakchod quickly went on to become the giants of the entertainment industry on the internet. However, with the #MeToo movement that stormed various professional industries both in and out of the entertainment sector in 2018, did not even spare AIB and the names of two out of four members of the top tier talent came forward back then. Tanmay Bhat, the former CEO of AIB, was called out for knowing of allegations of sexual harassment made by an employee Utsav Chakraborty, but not actively making a stand on it. Bhat later confessed that he was aware of the case but decided to turn a blind eye towards it: “I should've ended ties then, and I didn't, and it is my fault. I'm truly sorry. I should've acted stronger,” he had said. On the other hand, Gursimran Khamba was accused of sexual harassment by a former partner. Now, according to the update shared by the Twitter handle of the organisation, AIB had to make some unfortunate and permanent changes within the company. An update pic.twitter.com/Jtq3nSGnwi — All India Bakchod (@AllIndiaBakchod) May 22, 2019 After having all their sponsors cut off ties with them under the allegations of sexual harassment, they struggled to bring an inflow of money, thereby failing to provide salaries to their employees. The lack of money led to them letting go of their Mumbai office and everyone working for them. Their YouTube channel with 3.5 million subscribers is “dead for the foreseeable future” with no new sketches coming out anytime soon. As far as the situation of the four top members of the organisation is concerned, Khamba has been sacked from the company for not cooperating with the on-going investigation against him, Bhat has been removed from the position of CEO (but will continue to work with AIB) and Rohan Joshi and Ashish Shakya will continue to hold their roles in the company while seeking independent work as well. As soon as AIB put out the news, there were mixed reactions from all over the country: They had a quick rise and even quicker fall — Komorebi ð¿ð (@TweetOfKomorebi) May 22, 2019 pic.twitter.com/v0yr7S0Vn8 — Prashant Pahare (@pAHAREZ) May 22, 2019 First Avengers, then Game of Thrones and Now AIB.

But before we get to the updates, we'd just like to say thank you to everyone who reached out to us. While we may have not been able to reply to everyone, please know that we are immensely grateful. After the events of early October, things moved fast. Almost all of our partners hit freeze on future associations, while others pulled out of active projects effective immediately. All of this hit revenue hard. We've always prided ourselves on being a hundred percent independent, creator-owned company. We've been free to choose our own destiny and set our own content standards as a result of this independence. However, the flip-side to this is that with business going to zero, the lack of revenue inflow made it impossible for us, as owners. to sustain outgoing costs. To be clear, we weren't randomly reckless or fast and loose with our money. We had invested a lot of our profits over the last few years - including those from our personal individual projects - into building the content house of our dreams. But with no incoming revenue and operational costs piling up, we had to make some hard, and unfortunately permanent, decisions. We had to let our office space and entire team go overnight. Production, creative, admin, all of it. This was particularly hard not just because making people laugh with us is a ton of fun, but because we had to say goodbye to some of the finest minds in the field, people we'd built dreams with for many years. One small point of pride in all this for us is that with the work they'd done at AIB, not one of them struggled to find another job. However, to that end, the AIB YouTube channel is for all intents and purposes, dead for the foreseeable future - there will be no new sketches anytime soon. It sucks, but it is what it is. If and when we decide to release other content on the channel (for e.g. stand-up clips). you will be the first to know. We'd also like to state that we at AIB have had an IC and anti-harassment system in place from the start. However, we recognise that the culture at work may not have been perfect and simply put, we need to be better. To that end, we maintain that Tanmay Bhat's lapse of judgement regarding Utsav Chakraborty was egregious. As a result, even though Tanmay Bhat's suspension has been lifted. he will no longer hold the position of CEO. With regards to Gursimran Khamba, an External Committee (EC) was appointed to look into the allegations made against him in October. The EC comprised of two experienced senior members -a senior partner at a law firm and a diversity consultant - and its mandate was to conduct a fair investigation into the matter. As required in such cases, the proceedings remain confidential. However, during the course of the investigation, we were informed that Gursimran Khamba had stepped away from the process, citing issues with the procedure. The EC was unable to conclude the investigation on account of his withdrawal. Given these circumstances, Gursimran Khamba will no longer be involved in operations at AIB. and will be working independent of us. Rohan Joshi and Ashish Shakya will continue to manage the remaining affairs at AIB, but will also be pursuing solo interests in the coming future. While we may not have a complete road map yet, we are sure of one thing going forward - we never want to stop entertaining. Making people laugh has been the great privilege of our lives and we hope to be able to keep doing that. In whatever new form the future holds for us. So once again, thank you for letting us into your world. It has been an honour.
  16. After a long time, two Indians will be working alongside at the International Cricket Council (ICC) headquarters. After Shashank Manohar being elected as President of the ICC, Manu Sawhney has been announced as the Chief Executive Officer of the ICC with immediate effect. For the past two months, Sawhney has been working alongside outgoing CEO, David Richardson to ensure a smooth transition for the organisation. Richardson will remain with the ICC until July, as originally planned, to oversee the delivery of the ICC Men's Cricket World Cup 2019 to be held in the United Kingdom later this year. Sawhney, a graduate from Birla Institute of Technology & Science, Pilani, India, was with ESPN Star Sports for seventeen years. During his tenure as Managing Director, he was responsible for scaling the business and doubling the annual revenues whilst delivering innovative content and digital growth strategy. He also built strong partnerships with stakeholders across 24 countries in Asia, according to reports. © Sportswire Additionally, he led the global broadcast partnership deal with the ICC that ran from 2007-2015. He is also a non-executive director and member of the Audit Committee of Manchester United Ltd. Being grateful for the position, Manu said: “I am excited by the opportunities ahead and I am looking forward to working in partnership with our Members, partners and staff to ambitiously accelerate the global growth of the game. Technology, engagement, women's cricket and driving greater value are key focus areas for us as we consider how we can innovate to transform the sport's long-term future and create a vibrant and sustainable sport globally.” He has paved the path for Indians to reach the apex of the international sport off the field and is set to inspire many youngsters growing up. Let us know your thoughts on his inspirational journey in the comments section.
  17. The fact that men don't like washing their jeans too often is all too well-established by now, but Chip Bergh, the CEO of Levi's, has taken it to a whole new level. The man has claimed that his jeans haven't seen the insides of an washing machine in over 10 years. He has also suggested that all of us should do the same. I know, right? We had this exact same reaction that you're probably having right now. How does it even work? What happens when it's dirty? Does it not smell? What about sweat, stains, germs?! But he had a solution to these things. He said he spot cleans stains, and whenever he feels they have become too dirty, he hand washes them lightly. Rest of the times, he just puts in out in the sun, and that apparently takes care of the cleanliness, as well as the germs. In fact, sunning a pair of jeans is apparently better to get rid of germs than washing it, and it also keeps the fabric fibers intact for years. © Getty Images For areas where sunlight is not available in plenty, storing jeans inside the freezer apparently can get rid of 90% of germs. Who knew? But we wonder what happens to the rest 10% of germs. © Getty Images Well, it probably works in countries with less pollution. We're wondering whether Chip still maintains his stand if he ever comes and lives in Gurgaon for a month. As for us, let's just say we'll have to be prepared for a flying chappal coming our way before so much as sharing this method with our mother, even on phone.
  18. A second heartwarming story on Twitter in one day and not a story about a bunch of trolls? How? I never knew this was even possible. Okay, keeping all the jokes aside, I would just like to say Twitter is having a good day today. First, there was a son who helped his dad who was about no customers showing up at his donut shop with the power of social media and now, a huge company took out the time to give the perfect response to a little boy with big dreams. Alan Joyce, the CEO of Qantas, an Australian airline took the time to respond to 10-year-old Alex Jacquot who had sent him a handwritten letter asking for advice about his own airlines called Oceania Express. Just look at the adorable little letter! He's already working on his dreams and has tried to set up everything, he's so serious about achieving this that he wrote to a man who he knows can guide him. This kid is going places, I can tell you that right now. Well, a CEO of big company is obviously busy but I still can't get over how Alan Joyce took out the time to give a proper response to Alex. After all, CEOs help out other CEOs. Here's the letter Alan sent back to Alex: Such a good way to encourage a little kid to go and achieve his dreams. You already know that Alex is going to remember this letter his whole life, and it will probably motivate him as well. Look at how happy he looks! Our competitors don't normally ask us for advice, but when an airline leader reached out, we couldn't ignore it. Naturally, there was only one way to respond: CEO to CEO. pic.twitter.com/JTFpzn5a6Y — Qantas (@Qantas) March 11, 2019 Everyone will be flying with Oceania Express in a few years.

  20. As the CEO of Apple, it is safe to say that Tim Cook is a prominent name in the industry. It's hard to miss the guy in the glasses, even if you are not particularly tech-savvy. However, it looks like the US president, our very own Donald Trump, thinks Apple's CEO is.... 'Tim Apple'. © Reuters During an American Workforce Policy Advisory Board meeting yesterday, the president referred to the CEO of Apple as 'Tim Apple' instead of Tim Cook. In his defence, names are hard. We get it. But we wonder if you can flub a name like Tim Cook, given his reputation in the industry and beyond. Here's what Trump said while addressing the media - "You've really put a big investment in our country. We appreciate it very much, Tim Apple." Better yet, here's a video clip in which you can see Trump unmistakenly referring to him as 'Tim Apple'. Also, watching Tim Cook politely nodding his head is just priceless. Trump just called Apple CEO Tim Cook “Tim Apple” pic.twitter.com/gTHHtjWvc9 — Sean O'Kane (@sokane1) March 6, 2019 It's hard to tell if Trump did this on purpose or he legitimately did a, what we like to call, an oopsie. In fact, this isn't the first time Trump has made a mistake while referring to someone. Last year, he referred to Lockheed Martin's CEO as "Marillyn Lockheed", instead of Marillyn Hewson. It's alright Mr Trump. Better luck next time.
  21. One of the biggest fears to live by in the man-made digital age, is fearing the leakage of classified or fragile information, from various digital mediums. A bigger fear than that is fearing the leakage of nude pictures that someone's ex may have of them, on a digital platform. Yes, we live in such a disruptive age, that it just takes a click for something like that ever happen. © Twitter Leaking someone's nudes digitally also makes for the best blackmail till date and it's a scary ordeal TBH. If you don't believe me, you can surely ask Amazon founder Jeff Bezos, who actually chose to say 'no' to blackmail, only to wind up with a potential scandal in hand, after he publicly announced his divorce from his long-time wife MacKenzie. Bezos has publicly claimed that a local tabloid is blackmailing him with steamy leaked photos of him to his recent 'lover', and he definitely won't succumb to any form of blackmail, whatsoever. © Pintrest On a personal blog post, Besoz said that the 'National Enquirer' is threatening to publish his 'intimate photos' and that he has chosen to reveal the information about the threats rather than 'capitulate to extortion and blackmail'. The blog entry is titled 'No Thank you Mr. Pecker', and in it, Bezos is accusing the local tabloid of threatening him to publish intimate photos of him with Lauren Sanchez, the reporter with whom he was having an affair. I've written a post about developments with the National Enquirer and its parent company, AMI. You can find it here: https://t.co/G1ykJAPPwy — Jeff Bezos (@JeffBezos) 7 February 2019 Bezos believes the publication thinks the pictures were blackmail-worthy because they were perfect to tarnish the richest man's reputation amidst the Amazon stakeholders. Bezos has hired an investigator to further figure how the tabloid got hold of his intimate pictures in the first place. But the big question is, why would the National Enquirer blackmail him anyway? © Instagram According to Bezos, the parent company of the tabloid- American Media Inc. wants the Amazon chief to admit publicly that their investigation into his personal life was never "politically motivated or influenced by political forces". By now we all know the National Enquirer carried out a detailed investigation into Bezos' affair, which eventually led to his marriage ending, but we're not sure how any of it was influenced politically though. The National Enquirer claimed it had evidence that Bezos was "whisking his mistress off to exotic destinations on his $65 million private jet." "Something unusual happened to me yesterday. Actually, for me, it wasn't just unusual? - it was a first. I was made an offer I couldn't refuse. Or at least that's what the top people at the National Enquirer thought. I'm glad they thought that, because it emboldened them to put it all in writing," Bezos wrote. "Rather than capitulate to extortion and blackmail, I've decided to publish exactly what they sent me, despite the personal cost and embarrassment they threaten," Jeff Bezos states in his blog post. © Twitter The tabloid holds photos of Bezos in his briefs, naked selfies and an explicit dick picture. One of the emails sent to Bezos by AMI reads- "If your client agrees to cease and desist such defamatory behaviour, we are willing to engage in constructive conversations regarding the texts and photos which we have in our possession," To which Bezos replies, in his blog post "Well, that [the email] got my attention but not in the way they likely hoped. Any personal embarrassment AMI could cause me takes a back seat because there's a much more important matter involved here. If in my position I can't stand up to this kind of extortion, how many people can?" © Twitter As of now, Bezos has decided to run the risk of the tabloid leaking his nudes, in order to publicise the AMIs extortion practices and show the world how they really do business. I think it's a mighty brave move, Mr CEO. He adds- "Be assured, no real journalists ever propose anything like what is happening here. Nothing I might write here could tell the National Enquirer story as eloquently as their own words."
  22. NVIDIA launched a brand new GPU for users who are budget conscious but still want to get the best experience for that price, and AMD, just days after, announced its new chip that will compete directly with the RTX 2080. © AMD In a roundtable attended by Gizmodo, NVIDIA CEO Jensen Huang laughed off the competition and described AMD's announcement as “underwhelming”. He claimed that the RTX 2080 will “crush” AMD's Radeon VII in benchmarks. “The performance is lousy,” said Huang, referring to AMD's latest GPU, Radeon 7. © AMD NVIDIA introduced a ray-tracing to their new GPUs and you can read all about it here. The technology has been developed over the past ten years in collaboration with Microsoft and game developers. You can read our review of the RTX 2080 and about its performance here. In our tests, the RTX 2080 performed extremely well with certain games and you can see our results below: © MensXP Ray tracing basically traces light in real-time that basically results in better textures, lighting effects, reflections and accurate shadows. AMD's latest GPU does not support this technology at the moment and the company claims it is 25 per cent more powerful than the previous generations. When asked, AMD CEO Lisa Su about Jensen's comments, Su responded, "What I would say is that we're very excited about Radeon VII, and I would probably suggest that he hasn't seen it yet." So, I guess we'll have to wait a few more weeks to see how things shake out with final hardware and drivers, and independent performance testing.
  23. Twitter is a great place for people to share news and new ideas but sometimes people get so illogical, it's actually hilarious. Case in point, some people on the website are trying to get Jack Dorsey, the CEO of Twitter, banned from Twitter, his own site. Yep, let that sink in. This absurdity is a result of Jack holding up a placard that said 'Smash Brahminical Patriarchy' during his visit to India. He met up with a bunch of women journalists, activists, and writers to talk about his experience in the country. During Twitter CEO @jack's visit here, he & Twitter's Legal head @vijaya took part in a round table with some of us women journalists, activists, writers & @TwitterIndia's @amritat to discuss the Twitter experience in India. A very insightful, no-words-minced conversation ð pic.twitter.com/LqtJQEABgV — Anna MM Vetticad (@annavetticad) November 18, 2018 Here's the poster that has caused the controversy. © Twitter So basically, the term 'Brahminical Patriarchy' is causing the outrage but people are not understanding that it's not being anti-brahmin or even directly saying anything about brahmin people. Feminists use the term #BrahminicalPatriarchy to talk about how #brahminical norms determine #caste & #gender relations.

Yet Patriarchy is Brahminical. #TwitterLogic — Aditya Raj Kaul (@AdityaRajKaul) November 20, 2018 But, the best kind of hate came in the way of a movement to ban the CEO of Twitter from Twitter itself. Ban the Twitter's Jack 'Ass' CEO https://t.co/WgKvzGCZeu — Pawan Kr (@Pawan_Mithila) November 20, 2018 Do you even know what you're saying? Twitter should ban it's CEO account. https://t.co/2QfjdZQTjT — Akash Sharma (@krisakashsharma) November 20, 2018 Are you kidding me? Will @Twitter dare ban their bigot CEO @jack? pic.twitter.com/wV0DcZJmpD — Pankaj Bengani (@pankaj_bengani) November 20, 2018 Both I and Twitter have one thing to say - Awkward — Twitter (@Twitter) November 19, 2018 Okay, I'm done with the absurdity of this, this is the real question. I'm mildly confused about one thing. Why are some people who say there is no such thing as Brahminical patriarchy upset with those who want to smash it? If it doesn't exist, let them smash it, no. What goes of your daddy? — Amit Varma (@amitvarma) November 20, 2018 Exactly. Why are people outraging against twitter's campaign to smash brahminical patriarchy? It only refers to a culture where discriminatory notions of purity, pollution, and inherent hierarchy prevail. What is wrong in opposing something like that? — Vasudha Venugopal (@vasudha_ET) November 19, 2018 You can't really reason with such people. Right wing outrages without academic knowledge. To outrage against @Jack because he supported Smash Brahminical Patriarchy is like outraging against someone who said "end racism" or "stop rape". It is a concept, a feminist call for decades. pls read https://t.co/IjeMJnGC3j pic.twitter.com/KhDvw2VOwX — Sanjukta Basu (@sanjukta) November 19, 2018 They live their life based on that 'High School Musical' song. when women say "men are trash" men lose their shit when dalit women say "smash brahminical patriarchy" brahmins lose their shit when kashmiris say "azadi from india's occupation" indians lose their shit oppressors everywhere lose their shit when the status quo is challenged — my sou-ditious heart ð°ð±ð¼ð (@soupykaur) November 19, 2018 By trying to get Jack banned from his website? Twitter CEO @jack held a placard that had 'Smash Brahminical Patriarchy' written on it and the Hindu Right, as usual, has reacted with self-righteous indignation. By foolishly calling it an attack on Brahmins, they are trying to get back at Twitter for banning RW hate-mongers — Manimugdha Sharma (@quizzicalguy) November 19, 2018 Just stop. Yes pls, stop the ignorant outrage. Brahminical patriarchy isn't about individual brahmins, but the notion of purity that oppresses women (and men). If u think this doesn't exist, ur brain is soaked in it. P.S. defensive attacks against ppl saying this is the demo of the concept https://t.co/VcpF7OKzbv — Rohini Mohan (@rohini_mohan) November 20, 2018
  24. While most of us were busy stalking Ranveer Singh and Deepika Padukone's wedding pictures on Twitter, Twitter's CEO Jack Dorsey was busy chilling in India. For all those people, who were frantically looking for Shah Rukh Khan at Ranveer and Deepika's wedding in Italy's Lake Como, we're sure you couldn't even find his shadow in any of the pictures because he was in India meditating with Jack. In fact, he especially went to Mannat to wake him up. We're not making this up, he tweeted it himself. He first asked him "@iamsrk u up?" @iamsrk u up? — jack (@jack) November 14, 2018 He then tweeted a picture of SRK's house saying "Knock Knock". @iamsrk knock knock pic.twitter.com/1srdqFiy3O — jack (@jack) November 14, 2018 SRK being SRK, he was at his wittiest best while replying to Jack and wrote, "Up and Ready. And shockingly on time...if anybody has warned u about my tardiness they r just spreading 'fake news...'" Up and Ready. And shockingly on time...if anybody has warned u about my tardiness they r just spreading 'fake news...' https://t.co/LE9ybOyJ3K — Shah Rukh Khan (@iamsrk) November 14, 2018 And finally the two met and SRK posted a picture of him chilling or should we say meditating with Jack. he wrote, "Today @jack made me realise with his calm demeanour & composed, nearly meditative mindset...'that all Work and no Pray, would make Jack a dull boy.” Thx for dropping in & also team @Twitter for a lively evening. Have a happy stay in India." To which he replied, "Thank you for having us." Today @jack made me realise with his calm demeanour & composed, nearly meditative mindset...'that all Work and no Pray, would make Jack a dull boy.” Thx for dropping in & also team @Twitter for a lively evening. Have a happy stay in India. pic.twitter.com/melFfe8NKJ — Shah Rukh Khan (@iamsrk) November 14, 2018 PM Modi, who is one of the most followed leaders on social media and boasts of 44.4 million followers on Twitter, too met with Jack on Tuesday and said he enjoys using Twitter, "I enjoy being on this medium, where I've made great friends and see everyday the creativity of people." © Twitter Dorsey tweeted about his meeting and said: “Thank you Prime Minister @narendramodi for having us today. I enjoyed our conversation about the importance of global conversation. Also: thanks for the ideas for Twitter!”
  25. I read somewhere that determination takes you places, excuses don't and I guess it's absolutely right. The world is primarily divided into two parts – one, that is great in getting things done and the other, that is brilliant in coming up with excuses. While most of us proudly move to the latter part of the world, there are some who stick with the former and turn out to be an inspiration for everyone. © Pexels If this wasn't true, then we wouldn't be talking about Walter Carr right now, whose dedication towards his work has left us speechless and has filled our hearts with respect for him. His efforts might mean nothing to some people, but what he did is not something everyone can do. In fact, if we find ever find ourselves in Walter's situation, most of us will probably not do what he did. © Twitter Walter recently joined a company that assists people in moving into their houses. On his first day at work, he was supposed to help his clients Jenny Lamey and her husband Chris, who stayed nearly 20 miles away from his house (FYI that's 32 km). Jenny lives in Homewood and Walter lives in Pelham, Alabama. But, a night before his first day at work, Walter's car broke down and he didn't know how he was going to get to work. But, Walter did not lose hope. He started walking around midnight and walked 32 km to reach the house on time on his first day at work. Moved by Walter's dedication, Jenny took to social media to share this inspiring story. This deserves 1000 retweets! Read this amazing story about Walter, a new bellhop in Birmingham. Major shoutout to the @PelhamPoliceAL officer who lended a helping hand. pic.twitter.com/eLgbAxg4uv — Bellhops (@BellhopsMoving) 15 July 2018 She wrote, “Walter said that he was supposed to help us with our move today. The officer proceeded to tell us that the previous evening, Walter's car broke down and he didn't know how he was going to get to work. So he left Homewood at MIDNIGHT and started WALKING to Pelham on 280. He WALKED ALL NIGHT.” The cops picked him up in the morning and took him to get breakfast and after knowing his story, brought him to Jenny's house. The couple asked if he wanted to take some rest, but he declined the offer and started working. Reportedly, when the company's CEO heard this news about his new employee, he was extremely proud of him and drove to Walter and gifted him a 2014 Ford Escape as a reward. We guess, hard work does pay off and the reward sure is great. Source: Inquirer
