Verizon turns on commercial private 5G in U.S.
  + stars: | 2021-06-10 | by ( Supantha Mukherjee | ) www.reuters.com sentiment -0.79   time to read: +2 min
REUTERS/Brendan McDermid/File PhotoVerizon Business (VZ.N) on Thursday launched its first commercially available private 5G network in the U.S. to offer businesses and government departments high-speed indoor or outdoor connectivity. Private 5G networks remove the need for businesses to jostle for speed with others on a public network and help enable data-intensive applications that use computer vision, augmented reality and machine learning to increase productivity. Verizon has been trialing private 5G with several customers, including Associated British Ports, and have partnered with the likes of Microsoft (MSFT.O) and Amazon (AMZN.O). The private 5G network, managed by Verizon, would keep all cellular traffic on the premises of the customer to increase security, while authorised remote users can still access applications. Verizon is seeing a lot of demand from financial institutions to increase speed of trading flows using 5G, and warehouses, which are planning to use robots and autonomous vehicles, Sampath said.

Taiwan was ranked the best place for expats to live in a recent survey from Internations. Insider spoke to seven expats in Taiwan about what it's been like living there, both before and during the pandemic. Expats ranked Taiwan higher than anywhere else when it comes to quality of life, working abroad, and friendliness. Many expats who've set up camp on the island live a cushy lifestyle thanks to the benefits provided by their companies. Free housing is no small thing, particularly in the capital of Taipei, where most expats live.

The Price of Glittering Glass

No wonder fashionable men embraced formal wear encrusted with dazzling glass-jewel embroidery, turning themselves into literal mirrors. “In Sparkling Company: Glass and the Costs of Social Life in Britain During the 1700s,” a exhibition opening May 22 at the Corning Museum, surveys the etiquette and styles that new forms of glass inspired among the period’s elite. Smooth and reflective, glass “really resonated with the polished and polite ideas of modernity,” said Mr. Maxwell, who curated the show. Exemplifying the use of glass in fashion, a man’s formal coat and waistcoat, made in France around 1780, glimmer with glass-paste “jewels” and embroidery. “The British elite flocked to Paris whenever peacetime permitted, to stock up on French fashions and French luxury goods,” said Mr. Maxwell.

When heated to a high temperature and then cooled, new chemical composition can change the way glass behaves. For Gorilla Glass, Corning narrows down the number of compositions to a few dozen, does more melting, then picks two or three candidates to test. It can take one to three years of testing to reach the one composition Corning ends up putting into the next generation of Gorilla Glass. The U.S. is entering a new cycle of investment in broadband connectivity, and fiber supplier Corning is poised to reap the benefits, according to JPMorgan. The investment firm upgraded the glassmaker-turned-tech supplier to overweight from neutral on Monday, saying in a note to clients that the company's should capture the majority of the rising spending on fiber in U.S.

CFO Pay Rises as Their Companies Navigate Coronavirus Pandemic
  + stars: | 2021-04-15 | by ( Kristin Broughton | ) www.wsj.com + 0.00   time to read: +6 min
Finance executives at America’s biggest companies received a collective 7% pay rise last year as many of them steered their firms’ finances through the pandemic, though not all saw their compensation increase. CFOs last year played a central role in navigating their companies through the economic downturn caused by the coronavirus pandemic. Some companies, including mattress maker Sleep Number Corp. and specialty glass company Corning Inc., handed their executives stock awards for temporarily giving up part of their salaries. Companies with fiscal years ending on Dec. 31 typically decide on bonuses at the end of the year and pay awards early in the following year. Still, some CFOs received pay packages that came close to rivaling those of their CEOs.

Corning Inc. will substantially increase production of glass vials for Covid-19 vaccines after receiving more federal funding, the latest step to meet heavy demand for a vital vaccine component. The company will use the $57 million in funding from the U.S. government to expand glass-vial manufacturing capabilities, said Brendan Mosher, vice president and general manager of the company’s pharmaceutical technologies business. Corning now expects to produce 150 million vials this year, a 50% increase from what it previously expected. The increased output should help ease tight supplies of the glass vials, which are essential to storing the Covid-19 vaccines that governments have been counting on to help end the pandemic. Glass vials—and the special medical glass used to make them—have been in heavy demand ever since the pandemic hit.

He voted against impeaching former President Donald Trump in January but voted in favor of certifying the 2020 election of Democrat Joe Biden.

Companies who deal with Apple are held to strict nondisclosure agreements, even if they are public companies and Apple is a major customer. While nondisclosure agreements are common in high tech, people who work with Apple say it takes confidential information more seriously than competitors. Apple tells partners they can't mention Apple in public or to the media, according to people familiar with the matter who didn't want to be identified to avoid risking their relationship with Apple. Some companies can engage in limited discussions of their business with Apple, especially if Apple has publicly talked about the relationship and approves. Inside the company, we have a codename for Apple, we never even say 'Apple' inside the company," Corning CEO Wendell Weeks said on an earnings call in October.

Recent scrutiny has forced the issue of congressional stock trading into the limelight. Perdue, meanwhile, is the former CEO ofCritics of congressional stock trading believe lawmakers must pass stricter regulations to keep members of Congress from dabbling in investments affected by the very laws they write.

Congressional stock trading activity dropped by some two-thirds after 2012, according to a study by nonprofit consumer advocacy organization Public Citizen.

Traders talk outside the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) in New York City, New York, U.S., November 9, 2020. With the S&P 500 up 9% in six trading sessions to an all-time intraday high, many are looking at parts of the market as overbought. Others agree, but say it doesn't matter in this strange mix of election and vaccine news. Citigroup's Tobias Levkovich notes that there are three "buckets" of value stocks: financials, industrials and the "Covid-impaired groups" like travel and leisure. Except the market is at an historic high, and much of what has moved, even in the value space, has moved up very fast.

Pfizer is marshaling a massive new cold-storage supply chain to handle the delicate dance of transporting limited doses of its coronavirus vaccine from manufacturer to any point of use within two days. Experts say it will be a “Herculean effort” requiring several new technologies to work in flawless concert to safely deliver every dose of the drug. From there, the vaccines will be packed below dry ice inside thermal containers expressly designed by the company for this vaccine’s delivery. That is achieved with decades-old supply chain arrangements and tried and tested technologies,” Tom Goldsby, a logistics professor at the University of Tennessee, said in an email. ‘We will rely on professionals across the full spectrum of the supply chain from the military to civilian sector manufacturers, distributors ... transportation providers … and the health care organizations called upon to achieve this Herculean effort,” Goldsby said.
