Google’s CEO Larry Page has admitted that he faces vocal cord paralysis that makes him face difficulty in breathing and speaking some times. But the gentleman still manages to run his company to the best!</p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img src="http://themoneytimes.com/files/imagecache/picturethumb/lar.jpg" alt="" title="" class="imagecache imagecache-picturethumb imagecache-default imagecache-picturethumb_default" width="180" height="101" /> </div> </div> </div> <p><strong>Larry Page’s predicament</strong></p> <p>Page had been forced to stay away, from the annual shareholders meet of Google Inc and a conference call, as he had lost his voice. He explained this on his Google Plus Profile just recently but his absence had given the jitters to the shareholders. </p> <p>Since the last two years, 40 year old Larry Page has been working as Google’s co-founder and CEO. He admitted that about 14 years ago he had come down with a severe cold that had paralyzed his left vocal cord, but Google way back then had been in its nascent stages. Another cold attack last year had affected his right vocal cord as well. There is a mild movement noticed in his right cord as yet he states.</p> <p><strong>The agitated investors</strong></p> <p>Remember Apple’s blow when they withheld details on Steve Jobs’ health condition? Jobs who had been suffering from cancer, had taken two leaves of absence and then laid down the baton from Apple’s CEO about 6 weeks prior to his death.</p> <p>So Page’s absence from the meet had scared the daylights out of the investors. They feared that his illness may come in the way of his performance. Page had come back into action in October and had set the agitated Wall Street worries to rest. He had carried on with a robotic and raspy sounded voice.<br /> <strong>Confirmation by Page</strong></p> <p>It was a relief to see Larry Page write “Thankfully, after some initial recovery I'm fully able to do all I need to at home and at work, though my voice is softer than before.” He further wrote “giving long monologues is more tedious for me and probably the audience.”</p> <p>The reason for the hobbled vocal cords still needs to be diagnosed, says Page. Page had been diagnosed with Hashimoto's thyroiditis in 2003, the doctors fear that this maybe the reason for the condition of his vocal chords. </p> <p>Page was heard stating about his medical condition that it is “fairly common benign inflammatory condition of the thyroid which causes me no problems.’ It’s not only his vocal cords that are influenced as “Vocal cord nerve issues can also affect your breathing, so my ability to exercise at peak aerobic capacity is somewhat reduced,'' wrote Page “That said, my friends still think I have way more stamina than them when we go kite surfing.”He zestfully commented. It’s a sad thing that Page has to undergo these health hassles that are very uncommon and extremely rare.</p> <p>It’s suspense about the way the next major conference event planned by Google is going to go! Will Page make an appearance on stage this time, or will Sergey Brin, co-founder of Google make waves this time?</p> Apple Inc co-founder and CEO conference call Google Inc Hashimoto's thyroiditis Internet Investing Investing People shareholders Steve Jobs Top Story United States vocal cord paralysis Wed, 15 May 2013 06:34:32 +0000 Minnie Mahendru 1701713183 at http://themoneytimes.com Yahoo back to the drawing board, vows comeback http://themoneytimes.com/featured/20121022/yahoo-back-drawing-board-vows-comeback.html <div class="field field-type-text field-field-teaser"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>Yahoo, is not to be underestimated. The company under Marissa Mayer is leaving no stone unturned to revive its glorious days. </p> </div> </div> </div> <p><strong>Drastic Times Call For Drastic Measures:</strong> </p> <p>Yahoo has witnessed troubling times, obviously, its market share that dropped terribly from $45 billion to $18 billion in less than 10 years. The immense competition thrown in by Google and its inability to innovate its media publishing content snatched the company's undisputed title and made it sink for several years. </p> <p>Yahoo poses a stagnate visage, look of its group sites hasn't changed over the years and the company failed big time to make its presence felt in Smartphone technology.</p> <p><strong>Mayer on the go!</strong></p> <p>Mayer, who had a popular stint as Google executive, vows to revive the lost glory for the company. She is reported to have devoted all her time and energy towards applying necessary changes, centrally focusing on technology and empower the company's three important portals Yahoo Mail, Yahoo Finance and Yahoo Sports.</p> <p>"She's spending almost all her time with the product folks. She's spending it on technology. She's talking about engineering hires," a person close to Yahoo said about Mayer's early days.</p> <p><strong> Fire and Hire </strong><br /> Pooling in fresh talent, and highly experienced employees from other organisations remains a key strategy for Mayer to bring about a revolutionary change in the functioning. </p> <p>She hired in ad technology systems guru Henrique de Castro as chief operating officer; Ken Goldman as new finance chief, replacing Tim Morse; and Jacqueline Reese to assume the dual role of hiring and acquisitions.</p> <p><strong> Thirst to enter Smartphone apps menu </strong><br /> A roughly 700 million users hit different Yahoo web portal every month. The count appears overwhelming, though still far behind than those recorded by Facebook and Google. </p> <p>The two have a unbeatable hold in Smartphones apps, and Yahoo aims to cement itself alongside them.</p> <p>Unlike her predecessors, who had exploited much resources in maintaining the media content, Mayer seems ambitious of taking Yahoo to handheld gadgets and make it synonym with the brimming Smartphone technology and associated apps.</p> <p>She foresees more interactive features being blended with social networking experience, that remained absent from the company's portfolio since long.<br /> "The largest change is to be deadly serious about mobile," said a former Yahoo manager who remains in touch with people at the company."</p> <p>Mayer, who has already registered herself amongst most influential businesswomen worldwide, has a mountainous task to accomplish. She invites ideas, is open to changes and doesn't delay decisions.</p> <p>"Every CEO needs time to have their full vision articulated and understood," said Dan Rosensweig, a former Yahoo chief operating officer, who now serves as CEO of online textbook rental company Chegg.com. "To count Yahoo out would be an enormous mistake, because the users have not counted Yahoo out," he said. </p> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img src="http://themoneytimes.com/files/imagecache/picturethumb/yahoo.jpeg" alt="" title="" class="imagecache imagecache-picturethumb imagecache-default imagecache-picturethumb_default" width="180" height="126" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-box"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>Yahoo today, centrally focuses on:<br /> Mobile technology<br /> More acquisitions<br /> Pool in employees from other organisations </p> </div> </div> </div> acquisitions Business CEO Entertainment Facebook Google Investing Mayer media content mobile technology People revival Services smartphones Technology United States Yahoo Mon, 22 Oct 2012 06:47:30 +0000 Akshay Sharma 1701712255 at http://themoneytimes.com Manmohan firm on reforms, defies resistance from allies and Opposition http://themoneytimes.com/featured/20120916/manmohan-firm-reforms-defies-resistance-allies-and-opposition-id-1701712051.html <div class="field field-type-text field-field-teaser"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>Prolonged multifaceted resistance towards implementation of governmental reform-policies may retard nation’s economic growth by 5 percent, warns Prime Minister Manmohan Singh. </p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img src="http://themoneytimes.com/files/imagecache/picturethumb/manmohan_singh_fdi_pti.jpg" alt="" title="" class="imagecache imagecache-picturethumb imagecache-default imagecache-picturethumb_default" width="180" height="120" /> </div> </div> </div> <p>A string of governmental reforms directed towards reviving growth and preventing credit rating releg</p> <p><a href="http://themoneytimes.com/featured/20120916/manmohan-firm-reforms-defies-resistance-allies-and-opposition-id-1701712051.html" target="_blank">read more</a></p> FDI in Indian retail 2012 FDI in retail Indian diesel price hike 2012 Indian fuel price hike 2012 Investing People TMC opposes FDI in retail Top Story Sun, 16 Sep 2012 11:06:31 +0000 Rachna Pandya 1701712051 at http://themoneytimes.com UPA’s nod for FDI in retail enrages Opposition and allies alike http://themoneytimes.com/featured/20120915/upa%E2%80%99s-nod-fdi-retail-enrages-opposition-and-allies-alike-id-1701712049.html <div class="field field-type-text field-field-teaser"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>Retail industry in India – which is presently worth $450 billion – is expected to grow by leaps and bounds with the opening up of foreign direct investment (FDI) on Friday. </p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img src="http://themoneytimes.com/files/imagecache/picturethumb/fdi%20in%20india_0.jpg" alt="" title="" class="imagecache imagecache-picturethumb imagecache-default imagecache-picturethumb_default" width="180" height="128" /> </div> </div> </div> <p>Govt.</p> <p><a href="http://themoneytimes.com/featured/20120915/upa%E2%80%99s-nod-fdi-retail-enrages-opposition-and-allies-alike-id-1701712049.html" target="_blank">read more</a></p> FDI in aviation FDI in broadcasting FDI in power exchange FDI in power trading exchange Investing TMC 72-hour deadline set for rollback Top Story UPA’s nod for FDI in retail enrages Opposition and allies alike Sat, 15 Sep 2012 09:41:36 +0000 Rachna Pandya 1701712049 at http://themoneytimes.com Forex trading for the novice http://themoneytimes.com/featured/20110629/forex-trading-novice-id-101701710652.html <div class="field field-type-text field-field-teaser"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>The conversion of one country's currency into that of another is known as Foreign Exchange.
