The expert explained why he thinks politics needs professionals who are ready for managerial and administrative work. He noted that it is very important in politics, including electoral politics, that people have the so called background, in other words personal and professional experience, education and contacts. People look at achievements of a politician. This determines his her reputation, Vladimir Litvinovich said.
Steve Marcus Reuters Scott Borchetta is widely recognized as the man who made Taylor Swift s career by signing, in 2006, the then 15 year old unknown singer. But it could also be said that Swift made Borchetta s career. In 2005, the Nashville record exec left DreamWorks Records to roll all the dice, as he later put it, and start a new label, Big Machine Records, with just three artists: Jack Ingram, Danielle Peck, and Swift. Borchetta would go on to sign other big country acts Florida Georgia Line and Thomas Rhett among them but none as world crushingly successful as Swift turned out to be. Her achievements in large part explain the more than $300 million that Big Machine was reportedly sold for last week.Swift isn t happy about that sale, even though she s no longer signed with the label. Her six album deal with Big Machine ended with the release of 2017 s Reputation, after which Swift opted to sign a new contract with Universal Music Group, the largest music company in the world. The decision to exit Big Machine, she said in a note posted on Sunday, was excruciating. By going, she was leaving behind control of all her master recordings Music I wrote on my bedroom floor and videos I dreamed up and paid for from the money I earned playing in bars, then clubs, then arenas, then stadiums.

Facebook doesn't exactly have a pristine reputation, but on a certain level it's surprising nonetheless when a new scandal concerning the social media giant breaks out after all, just how many more surprises can it manage? The answer, it turns out, is many. A new report put out by campaign group Privacy International found that 20 out of 34 popular Android apps send data to Facebook without asking for permission. This echoes the findings of a previous report on health and dating apps.In short, the apps identified in this report, which include prayer apps, MyFitnessPal, DuoLingo, Kayak, Indeed, Shazam, Skyscanner, Spotify, TripAdvisor, and Yelp, send certain data to Facebook the second they are opened on a phone. The information includes the app's name and the user's unique ID with Google. This information is sent whether or not the user has a Facebook account, but if they do, the info can be tied to a profile, essentially de anonymizing them. If you consider the fact that multiple apps are contributing to your profile, that means Facebook can create a pretty accurate profile.
Her latest album, Reputation, came out in November 2017 to much fanfare, and it brought us hits like ;Look What You Made Me Do,; ; ...Ready For It,; and ;Delicate; not to mention a number of epic music videos. It was released too late in 2017 to be considered for the 2018 Grammys, so many assumed it would sweep the 2019 ceremony.And Swifties are mad.
Disgraced comedian Bill Cosby's star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame won't be removed, even after he received a sentence of three to 10 years in prison for drugging and sexually assaulting a woman over a decade ago, becoming the first celebrity of the #MeToo era to be sent to prison. In a statement Tuesday to CBS Los Angeles, the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce said it "does not remove stars from the Walk of Fame" because they "are intended to be permanent.""The stars only commemorate the recipient's professional accomplishments," the chamber wrote. The chamber acknowledged Cosby's tarnished reputation, saying, "It is regrettable when the personal lives of inductees do not measure up to public standards and expectations."
If you take a look back at all of Swift's appearances, or lack thereof, at the VMAs, you'll quickly realize that the singer who's received 17 total VMA nominations has a somewhat difficult history with the awards show. As mentioned before, 2009's VMAs provided a pivotal moment for both West's and Swift's careers, and even though it's almost been 10 years since then, it's still a topic of discussion and debate. In the years since the moment when West stormed onto the stage to proclaim that Beyonc deserved the Best Female Video award, both artists (West and Swift) have gone on to reference each other on their new records.After the West Swift feud began right before viewers' eyes, Swift did not make it to the awards in 2011, 2016, and 2017. Based on the past two years, it certainly seems like Swift might just not be into going to the VMAs at all anymore, especially considering that her latest album, Reputation, wasn't nominated for any of the major honors this year. Instead, Swift's song quot;Look What You Made Me Do quot; snagged three nominations for best art direction, best visual effects and best editing.
A U.K. government office that investigated the Cambridge Analytica scandal announced its intention to fine Facebook 500,000 pounds ($663,000) for failing to safeguard that user information. The amount is the maximum that the agency, the Information Commissioner;s Office, can levy for violation of Britain;s data privacy laws.The penalty is a pittance for Facebook, which generates that sum roughly every seven minutes, based on its first quarter revenue of $11.97 billion. But it would represent the first tangible punishment for the company 's privacy scandal, which tarnished its reputation, temporarily pushed down its shares and forced CEO Mark Zuckerberg to testify before Congress, but otherwise led to few lasting repercussions.

LOS ANGELES mdash; President Donald Trump's attorney, Rudy Giuliani, said Stormy Daniels' claim she had sex with Trump in 2006 isn't credible because she's a porn actress with "no reputation.""I'm sorry I don't respect a porn star the way I respect a career woman or a woman of substance or a woman who isn't going to sell her body for sexual exploitation," Giuliani said at a conference in Tel Aviv.
”A good relationship between an association and member is difficult when one of the member sues the association, therefore in this particular situation when suit has been initiated by a member , it causes a certain amount of friction between the two, ” COAI Director General Rajan S Mathews told PTI. He was speaking in reference of Reliance Jio approaching court against remarks of Cellular Operators Association of India in its press statement where it called the company a ”back door operator ” and other comments which the new entrant felt were made to harm its reputation, commercial interest, advance interest of rival operators and stifle its growth.
Even if you 're still on the fence about Taylor Swift 's latest album, Reputation, there is no question that the singer goes the extra mile for her loyal fanbase. This past weekend, she proved that yet again.
Taylor Swift has come a long way since releasing her first self titled album in 2006. The singer songwriter has toured the world, won Grammy Awards mdash; needless to say, she's one of the biggest pop stars in music today. Her music, which ranges in style, particular on her last album, resonates with many. Songs like "Look What You Made Me Do" and "Reputation" from her most recent album, "Reputation," were radio hits. But over the years, as Swift's career has exploded, she's had many other hits that no one knew were hers, simply because she wasn't the one singing them.
But what a damned shame that Barbara Underwood was named as acting Attorney General to replace Eric Schneiderman, protector of women and the state's fiercest opponent of horrible Harvey Weinstein, sexual predator.Simply because Underwood's a woman who clerked for Thurgood Marshall, argued 20 cases before the Supreme Court and has a sterling reputation, doesn't mean she'll be able to do what our previously elected male masters of the universe, (or make that masturbators of the universe) were able to do. (And almost get away with.)
Hi, I #x2019;m Moo and even though I #x2019;m huge, I #x2019;m really just a big, goofy boy. I #x2019;m about 10 months old and I #x2019;ve already spent two months of my very short life in a shelter. There was also that week at the vet #x2019;s after I ate a tennis ball, but let #x2019;s not get into that now. Let #x2019;s just say that I #x2019;m really, really ready to start my life with a family.I love walking, I love riding in cars, and I love chasing tennis balls (see above). I #x2019;m housebroken. I love food which makes me easy to train. I am very sweet and very funny. Because I #x2019;m a pit bull mix, people tend to be afraid of me, but they probably don #x2019;t realize that before we got this scary reputation, my breed was known for being a great family dog (Petey, the dog from #x201c;The Little Rascals #x201d; was a pit bull).
The thing is, Reputation was released on November 10th, 2017. And even though it shattered records for the year after only having been around for less than two months, it;s actually not eligible for Grammy consideration. According to the Grammy website, ;For the 60th Annual Grammy Awards, albums must be released between Oct. 1, 2016, and Sept. 30, 2017.; So Reputation was more than one month late for Grammy consideration, and while that;s unfortunate, it was probably actually something that Swift was planning on. You see, by waiting until November to release her album, Swift could at least try and ensure that she would get Grammy nominations for this year and next year.I mean, it would be pretty out of the ordinary for Swift 's Reputation not to get any Grammy nominations. After all, it broke the record for album sales in 2017 after just being released for four days. It 's a truly magnificent album, and definitely worthy of all the hype.
Given how big the sales numbers have been for Taylor Swift;s new album Reputation, and how enthusiastic the mania surrounding anything she does is in general, it;s fair to assume that the tour behind the album would be one of the most anticipated and massively attended of 2018. However, this might not be the case ... not even close, actually.Tickets for the Reputation tour have been on sale since December 13th, but as the New York Post notes, not one of the 33 dates scheduled between May 8th and October 6th has sold out on Ticketmaster. Compare that to her 1989 tour, which had multiple shows around the world sell out within minutes of tickets going on sale. Meanwhile, the New York Post cites a "music industry insider " as saying, "Sales so far have been a mega disappointment. There are hundreds if not thousands of tickets left for every show. "
Jack Antonoff is a busy man. In between writing with Taylor Swift, Lorde, and P nk to name a few he still finds time to tour as Bleachers. In a new interview with Entertainment Weekly, he breaks down his crazy 2017 and reveals behind the scenes details about the artists he's worked with. It's been an especially important season for Swift, as her highly anticipated sixth album, reputation, arrived last November."It's an intense album, and that's what I care about," Antonoff told the magazine. "In the course of a day in the course of two minutes you can feel like you can conquer the world, or you can feel like the biggest piece of garbage that ever existed. An album or song should feel that way too. It should have the whole gamut of what it actually is like for the artist to be alive at that moment."

Taken together, the image and the title are a taunt to the media, to whom she hasn t given any interviews about the album.This week, though, Taylor Swift stares out from the covers of two mega famous magazines: the Person of the Year issue of Time, and the U.K. edition of Vogue. Both are striking examples of how she is helping pioneer a new image management playbook, one in which politics and paparazzi have moved celebrities to speak through the media without necessarily speaking to it.
