Once the undeniable king of the web, the firm is now heavily reliant on subscription revenues from its internet service, which are fast disappearing. The surprise is that almost 4m Americans are still willing to pay an average of $18 (£11) a month – on top of the fee they pay their broadband provider – to access the internet with AOL. In 2010, those customers were worth around $1bn in sales, a staggering 42 per cent of overall revenues.But AOL’s US customers are fast waking up. Between 2009 and 2010, the firm lost around 1m subscribers, worth around $400m in revenues. At this rate, the subscription business will be gone in just a few years.That’s why Armstrong is desperate to build a content hub, and there are worse places to start than with Huffington Post, one of the more successful online-only publications. AOL has been here before, however. Who can forget the ill-fated acquisition of Bebo in 2008, which saw the firm spend $850m on the number three social network before selling it for a reported $10m last year. The multiples for that deal – 42.5 times 2007 sales and 160 times ebitda – were simply ridiculous, based on massively over-optimistic assumptions about compound growth, which proved incorrect. The price paid for Huffington Post, which is expected to post revenues of $60m this year, is less absurd, at around 6.3 times sales. But it is still pretty hefty for a firm that it is said to be turning just a small profit on such chunky revenues. Investors will be hoping AOL learnt its lesson last time round. TIMELINE | THE RISE AND FALL OF AOL1983AOL is founded as Control Video Corporation by William von Meister, offering a games downloading service. Renamed Quantum Computer Services in 1985 and finally became America Online in 1991.1998AOL buys web browser Netscape for $4.2bn (£2.6bn). But Netscape overtaken by Microsoft’s Internet Explorer.2000AOL and Time Warner announce the world’s biggest ever merger – a staggering $350bn deal which made the new entity one of the biggest firms in the world.2000-2002The firm is beset by problems, culminating in a quarterly loss of $54.2bn in 2002 following massive writedowns at Time Warner.2008AOL acquires social networking site Bebo, which is popular with teenagers, for a cool $850m. However, rival Facebook is steadily gaining users and soon eclipses Bebo, which looks set to become yet another poor acquisition.2009Time Warner and AOL part company as Warner is forced to make writedowns totalling £100bn as the recession bites.2010A wounded AOL sells Bebo to Criterion Capital Partners just two years after buying it for a reported sum of just $10m.

The apartment H is located along Medena Street in a building block from the ‘40s. The three-room apartment lacks the high ceilings and axial enfilade which are a staple of the surrounding apartments built during the time of The First Czechoslovak Republic (1918 – 1938). Despite this, with its rational disposition, the apartment remains evocative of these spatial principles. The central axis of the original corridor spans the apartment from the entrance through the main living space, and continues through the double-wing glazed door to the master bedroom.Save this picture!© Nora and Jakub CaprnkaThe living space concept therefore kept its Old Town character, even despite its smaller size and orientation away from the street and into the common courtyard. The central living area was expanded by the former maid room which now made space for the kitchen.Save this picture!CollageA ceiling-tall wardrobe creates a separation between the main entrance and this living space. Passing from the entranceway, a strong visual connection is established along the apartment’s central axis. The solid red-coloured volume of the kitchen optically balances out the apartment’s disposition.Save this picture!AxoAt the same time it references the partitions and doors that were erased in the reconstructed layout. The kitchen counter overhangs into the living room zone. The former kitchen became a separate study room.Save this picture!© Nora and Jakub CaprnkaThe interior is predominatly white, in line with the pale terrazzo floor of the entranceway. The colour palette concept then rests on the contrast between the white and a play with bright primary colours. Red and blue elements pop up as colour accent in the kitchen and in the bathroom on the white tile background. This interior principle is repeated in the rest of the apartment.Save this picture!© Nora and Jakub CaprnkaProject gallerySee allShow lessHouse By The Forest and The Pond / JRA Jarousek.Rochova.ArchitektiSelected ProjectsABW Office Building / RB Architects + Lang Benedek Associeted ArchitectsSelected ProjectsProject locationAddress:Cdad.

After being arrested by the Black and Tans, he was imprisoned on Spike Island Prison in Cork.On June 1, 1921, what began as a hurling match between republican prisoners at the prison ended in treachery when Patrick was shot dead by a British soldier.During the hurling match, the sliotar went out of play and into an area that was out of bounds for the prisoners. White approached a British soldier who was standing guard and asked him to retrieve the ball. The soldier told White that he could retrieve it himself — and when he did so the soldier shot him dead without warning.A monument to the War of Independence hero will be unveiled at White’s Cross in Meelick this weekend. Members of the Meelick-Parteen and Cratloe Commemoration Committee, a non–political group who have held a number of commemorations in recent years, have planned a series of events to remember Patrick White this Sunday.Local county councillor Cathal Crowe who is a member of the Meelick-Parteen and Cratloe Commemoration Committee, said, “It’s right that the Meelick community should commemorate Captain Patrick White as he epitomised the heroism and self-giving spirit that was so prevalent in our country during the War of Independence.”” he commemoration will be a non-party political, community-led event. It will be about local people remembering a local historical figure and we hope that many people will join us in remembering him on the day,” said Cllr Crowe.The day’s ceremonies begin at 1pm in Meelick churchyard when a wreath will be laid on Patrick White’s grave at the Republican Plot following 12 noon Mass. This will be followed at 2 o’clock by the unveiling of a newly commissioned monument at the site of Patrick White’s home at White’s Cross in Meelick.

WhatsApp Biden asks high court to put off wall, asylum cases By Digital AIM Web Support – February 1, 2021 Pinterest Twitter Pinterest Facebook Local NewsStateUS News TAGS WhatsApp Facebook WASHINGTON (AP) — The Biden administration has asked the Supreme Court to put off arguments over two controversial Trump administration policies that have been challenged in court now that President Joe Biden has taken steps to unwind them. The Justice Department asked the justices Monday to cancel arguments on Feb. 22 in a case over President Donald Trump’s decision to divert billions of dollars in taxpayer money to construction of portions of a wall along the border with Mexico. The new administration made a similar request for arguments set for a week later over the Trump policy that forced asylum-seekers to wait in Mexico for U.S. court hearings. In his first days as president, Biden rescinded the national emergency Trump declared on the southern border and ordered a pause in wall construction. He also suspended the so-called remain in Mexico policy for new arrivals. The American Civil Liberties Union, which represents groups that sued the Trump administration in both cases, has agreed to putting off both cases, acting Solicitor General Elizabeth Prelogar told the court. In a statement regarding the border wall, the ACLU also called for the administration to tear down the new construction and address environmental damage it caused. “It’s a good start that the Biden administration is not rushing to defend Trump’s illegal wall in court, but just hitting the brakes isn’t enough. Trump’s wall devastated border communities, the environment, and tribal sites,” ACLU lawyer Dror Ladin said.
