Michael FriedenbergMichael Friedenberg is stepping down from his role as CEO of IDG Global Communications after 12 years with the company, effective immediately, IDG announced today.Friedenberg’s four year tenure as CEO was one of persistent change for IDG — whose brands include CIO, ComputerWorld, PCWorld, and MacWorld — as it evolved from a traditional publishing model to a more centralized, global business information organization, focused its growing data and marketing services businesses. He helped steer the company through both the passing of founder and longtime chairman Patrick McGovern, in 2014, and the eventual sale to China Oceanwide Holdings Group for about $1 billion, a deal made official earlier this year.Indications that the company was going through some transitional pains then popped up in May, when a mass round of at least 90 layoffs hit both senior-level executives and staffers at all four of the above-mentioned titles.In a statement, the company said the cuts were the cost of IDG’s ongoing transformation “from a decentralized and complicated organization to navigate and do business with into a globally streamlined company that provides the greatest possible value and best possible experience to our readers and customers.” Kumaran Ramanathan“The timing was right for me to step down from this position, given IDG’s overall health, strong leadership team and a desire to be closer to my family,” Friedenberg said in a statement. “IDG has a very bright future ahead thanks to the talent, passion, and commitment to excellence of our employees around the world, coupled with the incredible leadership and financial resources that China Oceanwide offers.”China Oceanwide has kept things internal to replace Friedenberg, naming Kumaran Ramanathan president of IDG Communications, effective immediately. Ramanathan until now held the role of CEO of IDG Global Services, a group that oversees IDG’s Global Solutions, Strategic Marketing Services, Corporate Sales, and Research divisions. Altogether, he’s been with the company for nine years.“I am honored by today’s announcement,” added Ramanathan in the statement. “I was fortunate to have worked with Michael for many years as he led the company through the unexpected passing of our Founder Pat McGovern and transformed the company to become the world’s largest technology media, data and marketing services company.”

On the occasion of ‘World Day of Remembrance for Road Traffic Victims’, the CM said her campaign – ‘Safe Drive, Save Life’ – has earned the praise of the Supreme Court. “Today is World Day of Remembrance for Road Traffic Victims. Our government is committed towards reducing incidents of road accidents in #Bangla. Our #SafeDriveSaveLife campaign has reduced such incidents significantly, earning praise of the Supreme Court,” Banerjee tweeted. The state government launched the campaign in 2016 as part of its initiatives to inculcate a “sense of safe driving and responsible road behaviour” among people. The World Day of Remembrance for Road Traffic Victims is observed on the third Sunday of November every year in memory of millions of people who died in road crashes and their families.
Roses, cards and gifts are too clichéd gifts for Valentine’s Day, so people should now discuss boundaries regarding social media with their significant other, says a researcherThe study conducted at Kansas State University noted that without a discussion, each person in the relationship might have a different view of what is and is not acceptable.”Social media can enhance romantic relationships when it’s used to stay in touch throughout the day or honour your partner’s achievements, but there are pitfalls to avoid that could damage the relationship,” said Joyce Baptist, Associate Professor at Kansas State University. Also Read – Add new books to your shelfThe study involved nearly 7,000 couples who use social media, and Baptist found that the more accepting couples are of “boundary crossing,” or communicating with someone they perceive as physically attractive, the more harmful it is to their relationship.”A crossing is when a partner brushes a proverbial guard rail, possibly by having platonic but frequent contact with another individual he or she finds attractive. Boundary violation, on the other hand, may be emotional or physical infidelity,” Baptist said, suggesting that couples should discuss when a crossed boundary becomes a violation. Also Read – Over 2 hours screen time daily will make your kids impulsiveHe said that it was an important conversation for couples to have as a preventative measure.”Although they may say, ‘I trust you and it’s OK,’ they are not happy about it. They eventually perceive that their significant other is spending too much time connecting with others on social media rather than paying attention to their own partner,” Baptist added. Not paying enough attention to your partner and frequently crossing the boundaries can decrease relationship satisfaction and levels of care that people receive from their significant other. Since every relationship has ups and downs and that may tempt a person to confide in a former significant other during lower points of a relationship.”Keeping lines of communication open with former significant others can become a slippery slope. When you come across an old flame or another attractive person on social media, the question to ask is: Will communicating with this other person enhance my relationship or harm it?” Baptist said.It is always tempting to recount the moments you have shared with your previous significant other but reigniting an old flame can destroy your current relationship.”My best advice is that if you are serious about your relationship, cut off those (old) ties,” Baptist suggested in press statement that appeared on website of Kansas State University.
