Facebook owner Meta Platforms Inc. has cut plans to hire engineers by at least 30% this year, chief executive Mark Zuckerberg told employees Thursday, warning them to prepare for a deep economic downturn. .

“If I had to bet, I’d say this could be one of the worst downturns we’ve seen in recent history,” Zuckerberg told workers during a weekly employee Q&A session, the audio of which was heard by Reuters.

Meta has cut its goal of hiring engineers in 2022 to about 6,000 to 7,000, from an original plan to hire about 10,000 new engineers, Zuckerberg said.

Meta confirmed the hiring pauses in broad terms last month, but the exact numbers weren’t previously released.

In addition to cutting hiring, he said, the company was leaving some positions vacant in response to attrition and “increasing the pressure” on performance management to weed out employees unable to achieve more aggressive goals. .

“In reality, there’s probably a bunch of people in the business who shouldn’t be here,” Zuckerberg said.

“Part of my hope by raising expectations and having more aggressive goals, and just turning up the heat a little bit, is that I think some of you might decide this place isn’t for you. , and that self-selection is OK with me,” he said.

The social media and technology company is bracing for a leaner second half as it faces macroeconomic pressures and data privacy breaches on its advertising business, according to an internal memo seen by Reuters on Thursday.

The company needs to “prioritize more ruthlessly” and “operate leaner, meaner, better-executed teams,” Chief Product Officer Chris Cox wrote in the memo, which appeared on the company’s internal message board. the Workplace company before the Q&A session.

“I have to stress that we are going through a tough time here and the headwinds are fierce. We need to perform perfectly in a slower growth environment, where teams shouldn’t expect vast influxes of new engineers and budgets,” Cox wrote.

The memo was “intended to build on what we’ve already said publicly in the findings about the challenges we face and the opportunities we have, where we’re putting more energy into resolving it,” a doorman said. -word of Meta in a press release.

The guidance is the latest rough forecast from Meta executives, who have already moved to cut costs across much of the business this year in the face of slowing ad sales and user growth.

Tech companies across the board have scaled back their ambitions in anticipation of a possible recession in the United States, although the decline in share prices at Meta was more severe than at rivals Apple and Google.

The world’s biggest social media company has lost around half of its market value this year, after Meta reported that daily active users on its flagship Facebook app saw a quarterly decline for the first time.

Its austerity drive comes at a delicate time, coinciding with two major strategic pivots: one to reshape its social media products around “discovery” to fend off competition from the short-video app TikTok, the another an expensive long-term gamble on augmented and virtual reality technology.

In his memo, Cox said Meta should increase the number of graphics processing units (GPUs) in its data centers fivefold by the end of the year to support the “discovery” push. , which requires additional computing power for artificial intelligence. display popular posts from Facebook and Instagram in user feeds.

Interest in Reels, Meta’s TikTok-style short video product, was growing rapidly, Cox said, with users doubling the time they spent on Reels year-over-year, both in the U.S. than in the world.

Some 80% of the growth since March has come from Facebook, he added.

This user engagement with Reels could provide a key avenue to bolster the bottom line, making it important to boost ads in Reels “as quickly as possible,” he added.

Zuckerberg told investors in April that executives saw Reels as “an important part of the discovery engine’s vision”, but at the time he described the short video change as a “short-term headwind.” which would gradually increase revenue as advertisers became more comfortable. with the format.

Cox said Meta also saw opportunities for revenue growth in enterprise messaging and in-app purchase tools, the latter, he added, could “mitigate the loss of signal” created by privacy changes led by Apple.

He said the company’s hardware division was “laser-focused” on successfully launching its mixed reality headset, codenamed “Cambria”, in the second half of the year. — Katie Paul/Reuters

3 tech trends in online food delivery https://sonowebs.com/3-tech-trends-in-online-food-delivery/ Tue, 28 Jun 2022 16:24:49 +0000 https://sonowebs.com/3-tech-trends-in-online-food-delivery/ The restaurant industry is constantly evolving to identify ways to provide an optimal customer experience.

The restaurant industry is constantly evolving to identify ways to provide an optimal customer experience. Providing the best possible customer experience will dramatically improve your advantage in this competitive market. Thanks to advances in technology, you can easily stand out from the crowd, improving your competitive edge.

For many years, companies have been constrained by their physical location to serve only the local market. As technology advances, it offers new tools you can use to reach customers, wherever they are. In recent years, customers can easily order everything from groceries to fast food and have it delivered to their doorstep. Events such as pandemics have also revolutionized the online food delivery industry, making it one of the fastest growing industries of the modern era.

With such exponential growth, there is also fierce competition in this industry. For this reason, companies are always looking for new and better ways to do things. So, if you want to know all the latest trends in the food delivery industry, check out the following tech trends you might consider employing. They understand:

1. Conversational platforms

This is one of the technology trends you should consider using in your food delivery business. Conversational platforms use a natural language voice query to help customers order and purchase groceries. When requested by a customer, the speech recognition software offers audio responses to the verbal question and runs searches. With so many voice recognition software to choose from, it can be difficult to choose the right system for this platform. However, it’s important to visit more than one service provider to ensure you get a quality system at an affordable price that gives your hard-earned dollars value.

Food delivery companies, like Toronto-based meal prep company Protein Chefs, are adopting conversational systems to appeal to younger generations, who make up a larger percentage of the target market. Thanks to technological advancements, modern systems incorporate advanced solutions such as artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning, improving the efficiency of the interaction between your conversational platform and customers.

2. Cloud Kitchens

Cloud kitchens, called ghost kitchens, are the newcomer to the online food delivery industry. The introduction of cloud kitchen has played an important role in influencing the success of delivery services. In a traditional delivery service, you will take an order for an established restaurant and then pick up and deliver food items to the restaurant’s premises. A ghost kitchen also takes the order.

However, the significant difference between the two is that instead of delivering an order from an established company, the delivery service picks up the order from a dedicated unit in the cloud kitchen.

These dedicated units do not operate like established restaurants as they do not have premises for customers to visit. Instead, reputable food stores in your locality operate like a kitchen, producing food only for delivery services.

The main benefit of the cloud kitchen is improved efficiency. The ghost kitchen makes it easier for you to fulfill take-out orders, ensuring you meet customer needs and expectations. Additionally, cloud kitchen allows you to operate more than one brand, ensuring your customers have a wide range of options and increasing your customer base.

3. Enter Big Data

This is another technology trend you could leverage to improve your competitive edge. Big data analytics can help you better understand your customers’ needs and preferences. Thus, creating services that meet their needs and expectations will be easier, improving revenue and cash flow.

Here are some of the ways big data analytics can benefit your online food delivery service:

Big data analytics can help you access critical information such as customer reviews of menu foods. It will suggest how a business could modify the menu to include healthy foods to meet customer needs and expectations, thereby improving operational efficiency. This will not only increase your revenue, but also increase your chances of retaining customers.

  • Provide faster deliveries

Prompt delivery will improve customer experience and increase your business reputation. However, timely delivery is not as easy as it seems. Several factors can affect your delivery process. However, big data can help you access vital information such as traffic, weather conditions, etc., which could affect your delivery process. It will suggest routes and strategies you can use to ensure food is delivered quickly.

Conclusion

Technological advancements have revolutionized the way businesses interact and interact with customers. In recent years, it has become easier for customers to order groceries from the comfort of their homes. However, as a business owner, taking advantage of several technology trends is essential to ensure you stay ahead in this competitive industry.

A 37-year-old man charged with murdering a Christchurch woman on her way home from work on Saturday has been remanded in custody and reports have ordered his mental health assessed.

And the deceased woman can now be named Laisa Maraia Waka.

Just before the defendant was due in court, Waka’s adult daughter in Fiji posted a letter she had written to her mother on Facebook.

She said she was woken up at 5.30am yesterday and told the terrible news.

“It’s hurtful and unacceptable,” she said.

She last spoke to Waka on Mother’s Day and never imagined it would be their last contact.

“We have never met physically in the past four years, and I was looking forward to seeing you…but you left us early,” she wrote.

She remembers surprising her mother with a secret trip to New Zealand and taking her parents to a Crusaders rugby match.

She would miss her mother’s stories, she wrote.

“You have always been my role model since day one,” she said.

“You always encourage me to be more hardworking, to be independent, to be respectful, to pray a lot, to always lend a helping hand, to love and cherish your families and friends on both sides.

“I thank God for giving us such a loving and caring mum who is hardworking and (who) cherishes every moment of her loved ones.

“I’m so grateful to be your daughter – the way we always ended our calls with ‘I love you so much lewa, and I miss you. Don’t worry, we’ll meet and see you again soon’ I will miss you surely. “

She said there would never be a day when she didn’t think of her mother.

“I can’t begin to express how much I’m going to miss you. There’s a huge hole in my heart and I don’t know how I’m going to cope.

“I will always think of you, Mom.

“Your legacy is one that will inspire us all and we will remember your love and warmth forever.”

The man accused of stabbing Waka to death was granted an interim deletion of his name during a brief appearance at Christchurch District Court this morning.

Judge Mark Callaghan took him into custody without a plea at Christchurch High Court on July 15.

Defense attorney Josh Lucas made no bail request but asked for the name to be temporarily removed.

Mr Justice Callaghan granted interim deletion of the name and requested a report under section 38 of the Criminal Procedure (Persons with Mental Disorders) Act 2003 to assess the man’s fitness to stand his court case.

The accused did not speak during the hearing where he appeared by audio-visual link.

Members of Waka’s family were in court this morning, silently watching from the public gallery.

Outside of court, they declined to comment but were grateful for the support they were receiving.

Waka, in her 50s, was allegedly stabbed as she walked down Cheyenne St, Sockburn, after getting off the work bus on Saturday afternoon.

Despite the efforts of the emergency services, she died on the spot.

Flowers were laid today at the scene where Waka was killed on Saturday.

The large police cordon that surrounded the site yesterday as investigators pieced together what happened has now been lifted.

His family pays tribute to him today on social networks.

A relative said Waka’s death “is not easy” on the family and described her as a “big sister” and “a smiling and caring neighbour”.

Another friend thanked Waka for “a lifetime of good upbringing, teaching and loving kindness.”

He said he was “dried” by the news of her death.

“I miss you so much, you will always be in my heart…it hurts when we look back on your life.”

Another said her heart was “in pieces”.

“Why?” she asked upon learning of the drama.

“How it hurts when we remember this kind and caring woman,” another friend said.

The 37-year-old woman now charged with her murder was known to police and found nearby by officers and has been charged with the murder of the woman.

It is understood the man was receiving mental health care from the Canterbury District Health Board.

The DHB and the office of Health Minister Andrew Little both declined to comment.

Two people were initially arrested following the attack, which happened at 4.20pm, but one was later released by police after being found to be a relative of the man charged by the police. aftermath of murder.

The hearts of the people of Christchurch go out to the family and friends of Waka who was “killed in such a senseless and violent attack”, said the city’s mayor, Lianne Dalziel.

“A crime of this nature will also have a devastating impact on the community, and they too will want answers about how and why it happened.”

Superintendent John Price, Canterbury District Commander, said the alleged murder was ‘a gruesome, traumatic and random attack on an innocent person who was just returning home from work’.

Price said police’s thoughts are with the grieving family of the victim who are coping with the loss of a partner, mother, friend and colleague.

At this stage, police will not release any further details about the victim until all next of kin have been notified.

This traumatic and senseless act would have a huge impact on the community as a whole and across New Zealand, he said.

Price also wanted to reassure residents of their presence in the area as they conducted a scene survey and sought to speak to witnesses. He also called on anyone who saw anything, or anyone with CCTV footage, to come forward.

“Nobody deserves this,” Price said.

The knife was found at the scene.

AEW Dark Elevation Tape
Recorded June 22, 2022 in Milwaukee, Wisconsin at UW–Milwaukee Panther Arena
Report by Dot Net Contributor Chris Vetter

The crowd was maybe 4,000. All but one of these matches were taped before the live AEW Dynamite.

1. Anna Jay beat Heather Reckless at 1:50. Jay somersaulted and hit a spinning kick while lying on the mat. It’s new. Jay won by locking the Queen Slayer choke.

2. Will Hobbs and Ricky Starkz (with Taz) defeated Jordan Kross and Joey Jet at 3:27. Jet had a big “Joey!” sing before his name was announced, so he is clearly known here. Hobbs spent most of the match beating the smaller Kross, with Starkz just standing on the ring apron, laughing at the vicious beating. Hobbs threw Kross to Starkz, who punched Roshambo in the face to score the pin.

3. Ruby Soho beat Missa Kate at 2:38. Soho hit a Kazarian-style rotating face plant for the pin.

4. Swerve Strickland and Keith Lee defeated GPA and Vic Capri at 4:05. Lee continued to give Swerve a side eye on the way to the ring; they are clearly still not on the same page. Lee hip-pounded all the way around the ring, and he did all the work. Swerve tagged himself in and climbed up to the top turnbuckle. Lee turned around and looked surprised to see him there, as if he thought Strickland was about to punch him. Strickland hit his jump kick to the head as an opponent sat on the mat. Yes, Lee did all the work, but Swerve got the pin.

* The Butcher, Blade and Rabbit walked out onto the ramp and just looked at Swerve and Lee. They didn’t go down the ramp, so it ended there.

5. Ethan Page (with Dan Lambert) defeated Serpentico at 1:35. Serpentico was the first loser to come down the ramp before the game. Page won with a Razor’s Edge Aerial Powerbomb for the pin.

6. John Silver beat “KM” Kevin Matthews at 2:21. Yes, it was the KM who competed in Impact Wrestling, often with Fallah Bahh. Obviously, KM is much bigger than Silver. Silver dropped KM on the ropes, looking like he was setting up for a 619, but instead hit a racing boot to the back of the head. Silver put KM on his shoulders, getting a huge pop, and he hit his spinning Death Valley Driver plane for the pin.

* Tony Khan welcomed us and thanked us for coming. He’s just a bundle of energy.

7. Brody King and Buddy Matthews defeated Brubaker and CJ Esparza at 2:34. Matthews would have pain in his shoulder, but he didn’t have duct tape. What you’d expect here, with King hitting some deafening chops and hitting his piledriver for the spit.

Fans prepared to leave after Rampage taped, but Tony Khan ran away and said we still have a game for Elevation.

8. Max Caster, Colten Gunn and Austin Gunn (with Billy Gunn, Anthony Bowens) defeated Evil Uno, Preston “10” Vance and Alex Reynolds at 5:10. Huge pop for Acclaimed’s music. Caster rapped about how they were “more fraudulent than your senator” (referring to Ron Johnson) and that he was going to leave opponents as bruised as Biden falling off his bike. Fairly standard match, with Billy Gunn causing a distraction, allowing one of his sons to get a rollup on Reynolds, with his feet on the ropes for leverage, to score the pin.

After the match, the Dark Order beat heels, including Billy Gunn. They all hit stuns on Billy Gunn. John Silver ran into the ring and did the Scotty 2 Hotty Worm. Gunn’s overreaction to the moves was complete nonsense. A fun way to end a show that didn’t end until around 10:30am CST, which is almost 4.5 hours.

We are looking for reports on all WWE, AEW, NXT, Impact Wrestling, MLW, GCW and other notable live events. If you attend a show, we encourage you to send a report or even basic results to dotnetjason@gmail.com

Listen to “11/18 Pro Wrestling Boom Podcast With Jason Powell (Episode 136): Court Bauer on MLW Reboot, Pandemic Precautions, & More” on Spreaker.

NSW racing industry gets financial boost as online betting companies hit https://sonowebs.com/nsw-racing-industry-gets-financial-boost-as-online-betting-companies-hit/ Tue, 21 Jun 2022 07:56:54 +0000 https://sonowebs.com/nsw-racing-industry-gets-financial-boost-as-online-betting-companies-hit/ Tabcorp chief executive and managing director Adam Rytenskild said the consumption tax hike had leveled the playing field for gaming companies in Australia. “Online bookmakers will pay a larger share of betting tax which can be reinvested in the local racing industry and ensure a fairer system,” he said. “Online betting has changed significantly since […]]]>

Tabcorp chief executive and managing director Adam Rytenskild said the consumption tax hike had leveled the playing field for gaming companies in Australia.

“Online bookmakers will pay a larger share of betting tax which can be reinvested in the local racing industry and ensure a fairer system,” he said. “Online betting has changed significantly since the TAB licenses were issued and this is an opportunity to better align with the modern economy.”

Loading

Under the current system, 2% of NSW net taxable betting revenue from all Australian licensed betting operators is offered as support to the NSW racing industry .

But the government has decided to instead give the industry 33% of the so-called Consumption Point Tax, which was introduced in 2019 as a tax on all bets placed by NSW residents, regardless of the place of registration of the license of the betting operator.

The new formula will mean an average additional support of $66 million for races in New South Wales.

Racing NSW chief executive Peter V’Landys said while the taxpayer was better off thanks to the reform, the changes limited the regulator’s ability to raise its fees on private gaming companies.

“It takes away our pricing power. The real winner is the NSW taxpayer as they receive the vast majority of the tax collected,’ he said.

The supreme body of corporate bookmakers like Sportsbet, Entain, Pointsbet and Bet365 has called for a closer look at the plan, which it says raises “serious due process and accountability issues” for the government.

Responsible Wagering Australia chief executive Justin Madden has accused the government of engaging in a “backroom deal” and failing to consult.

“Today’s decision to raise the consumption tax point will only serve to lessen competition. What the government has done is allow an entity to strengthen its trading monopoly without paying a premium.

The government won’t dramatically increase the $5 million a year it funnels from gambling tax to addiction support services, despite admitting that online gambling is particularly harmful, but it will start to increase with inflation from 2023.

“Online gambling has grown rapidly in New South Wales and a higher proportion of those who gamble online are believed to be problem gamblers than those who gamble offline,” the budget documents said.

Australian Hotels Association boss Steve Ferguson hailed the move to “level the playing field” for online and offline betting.

“The retail environment, the safest place to bet, pays a higher rate of tax than someone betting on their phone with a corporate bookmaker,” he said.

The point increase in consumption tax, which comes into effect on July 1, aligns NSW with Western Australia and South Australia. In Victoria, the tax is set at 10%, while Queensland recently increased its tax from 15 to 20%.

Teen volunteers bring the magic of the online library https://sonowebs.com/teen-volunteers-bring-the-magic-of-the-online-library/ Fri, 17 Jun 2022 16:37:53 +0000 https://sonowebs.com/teen-volunteers-bring-the-magic-of-the-online-library/ When you think of bookcases, you can imagine the maze of bookshelves, tables, and chairs.

When you think of bookcases, you can imagine the maze of bookshelves, tables, and chairs. Or maybe even the squeak of an ungreased wheel as a librarian drives by with a book cart. All of that disappeared when the pandemic hit. But King County teens have finally found a new way to hang out at the library. Emily Chua of RadioActive Youth Media has more.

[RadioActive Youth Media is KUOW’s radio journalism and audio storytelling program for young people. This story was entirely youth-produced, from the writing to the audio editing.]

O

hen sophomore Shilten Kenzhegazy is looking for something to do, she often turns to the library.

She told me about one of the first programs she attended. It was an online workshop where she created a map of an imaginary fantasy land.

“Actually, I still have the map I drew,” Kenzhegazy said.

About a year after the pandemic halted, Kenzhegazy was browsing the King County Library System website. She discovers the programs offered by the libraries, from game sessions to cooking classes. A few programs, including the card-drawing one, caught the artistic teenager’s attention.

That’s how she came in contact with a group of teenagers who plan these events for libraries.

“I went to a couple of their meetings, and at the end of it they give you this survey to fill out,” Kenzhegazy said. “And at the very bottom it was like, ‘Do you want to participate?’ And I’m like, ‘YES!'”

Kenzhegazy volunteers with the Federal Way Library Teen Advisory Group – one of several teen advisory groups in the King County library system.

Before the pandemic, Kenzhegazy said she visited the library several times a month to find new books. Now she meets online weekly to plan events for other teens.

“Right now we’re trying to do this cooking event, and we’ve been trying to do this book club. We’ve also had bullet journaling events,” Kenzhegazy said. (Bullet journaling is where you organize your thoughts, goals, and to-do lists in a notebook, but with additional illustrations and design touches.)

Expand icon

All of these programs take place online, but this has not always been the case.

Rachel McDonald oversees the King County Library System’s teen programs. She said the pandemic shutdown has forced them into uncharted territory.

“When we first closed our libraries to the public, we thought it would be for two weeks,” McDonald said. “We realized we needed to think about how we were going to serve our community differently without our buildings being open, and that was a huge shift for us. We were 100% in-person, and suddenly we 100% found online.”

The King County Library System made this huge change in just a few weeks. McDonald’s said it was a little bumpy at first, but they managed to pull it off.

“And we managed to do it in a better way than we ever thought possible,” she said.

Part of their success is because teen advisory groups were willing to step in and work together to put on cool events.

It was hard for teens to hang out during quarantine — chat messages in virtual classrooms were a poor substitute for catching up in the hallways. But the online library lineup has proven to be a great place for teens to vibe with their friends. At the library, the teens found sanctuary by relaxing and doing things they loved.

Kenzhegazy said the library programs are simple and hassle-free.

“It’s like taking things off your shoulders so you can relax and have fun,” she said.

And while some teens craved to be social, others found ways to give back.

Linh Tran is a teenager who volunteers online with the library system as a reading buddy – someone who helps small children learn to read. One of her favorite memories is watching this very shy child become a more confident reader.

“The first time he didn’t speak at all,” Tran said. “The next day he came back. He started talking more, he started reading, and then eventually it got to the point where he was reading all the time.”

Tran says she loves the energy of small children and appreciates their unique creativity.

Volunteer stories like those of Kenzhegazy and Tran underscore teens’ resilience and willingness to adapt during the pandemic. Last year, teens hosted and helped run 130 programs for King County Libraries.

It would always happen.

The summer would turn into a circus with the return of Marcus Freeman to Ohio State in week one, but few expected the Notre Dame freshman head coach to be misquoted by a national writer.

CBS national college football writer Dennis Dodd is in the spotlight for his story about Freeman shooting Ohio State academics. (Which should come as no surprise as CBSHQ has recently been stealing ISD content at an alarming rate)

Ohio State media picked it up and followed it.

Still, Freeman didn’t take a shot at Ohio State in this case. Freeman reached out to his former bandmate, Bobby Carpenter, and went on Morning Juice on 97.1 The Fan on Wednesday morning to clear the air.

“That’s why it was important for me to reach out to you specifically because I wanted to set the record straight,” Freeman said. “I was misquoted by Dennis Dodd in this article and the key words and context were missing from the quote which upset many people I care about.

“I am very proud of my two degrees from Ohio State. I would never discredit the quality of education these degrees represent. I was speaking specifically of the academic rigors at Notre Dame. Notre Dame has 8,500 students and online courses weren’t part of the standard curriculum and before COVID they weren’t even offered.

Prior to his Columbus radio appearance, Freeman obtained Dodd’s audio and read his exact quote to the CBS writer.

“When I was first told about this quote that was doing the rounds yesterday in a negative way, I was surprised,” Freeman explained.

“I asked him to share the audio with me, so I could hear exactly what was said. I wrote – here is exactly what was said:

“Their study habits are formulated every day. You can’t fool Notre Dame scholars. If I didn’t go to class at Ohio State, 60,000 students. Cincinnati, another big public school. There’s 40,000 students. “I’m not going to class, ok. Take classes online. Show up for your final. At Notre-Dame, you have to go to class every day, but it formulates this capacity for work, this capacity for learning.

All the difference between what was written and what was said and why Freeman wanted to make sure those in Ohio knew he wasn’t shooting the Buckeyes.

“The only reason Ohio State and Cincinnati were referenced was because they were large schools with a large number of students compared to Notre Dame which is a small school with 8,500 students “, Freeman said. “That’s why it was important for me to contact you because I wanted to make sure that what I said was actually reported.

“I would never disrespect Ohio State. I would never say you don’t go to class. I went to class. I’m sure you did. We had classes and we made sure to go to class. I would never say that and disrespect my alma mater.”

September 3 can’t come soon enough.
