Yahoo said Monday that it would rename itself Altaba and CEO Marissa Mayer would step down from the board after the closing of its deal with Verizon Communications.
Yahoo has a deal to sell its core Internet business Nyheim Hines Jersey , which includes its digital advertising, email and media assets, to Verizon for US$4.83 billion.
After the sale, the company will change its name to Altaba from RemainCo Tyquan Lewis Jersey , Yahoo said in a regulatory filing on Monday. Altaba's primary assets will be a 15 per cent stake in Chinese e-commerce company Alibaba Group and 35.5 per cent stake in Yahoo Japan.
The name is a combination of the words “alternate” and “Alibaba,” the Wall Street Journal said, citing a source familiar with the matter.
The terms of that deal could be amended - or the transaction may even be called off - after Yahoo last year disclosed two separate data breaches; one involving 500 million customer accounts and the second involving more than a billion.
Verizon executives have said that while they see a strong strategic fit with Yahoo, they are still investigating the data breaches.
Five other Yahoo directors would also resign after the deal closes Kemoko Turay Jersey , Yahoo said.
The new company also named Eric Brandt chairman of the board, effective Jan 9.
certain where you stand. My feeling 芒鈧€?in the absence of some weird medical or genetic circumstance 芒鈧€?is that if you are not getting out in the sun almost daily and not eating appropriate vitamin D-rich foods or taking supplements, you are at high risk for the myriad diseases that can result. Supplementation Opinions vary on oral supplemental doses of vitamin D. The government has recently ratcheted up recommendations from the previous 40 IU to 200 IU for those less than 50 years of age, 400 IU for those over 50 and 600 IU for those over 70. That's the most conservative. Those most knowledgeable in the field say 1000 IU per day for infants and 2000 IU per day for adults with no lab tests and no sun. Next in line are those who say 3000-5000 IU per day (6-10 Quincy Wilson Jersey ,000 of plant form vitamin D2, ergocalciferol) for adults is best, 4000 IU being the most common dose I see suggested. Keep in mind that young whites get about 20,000 IU from a few minutes of full body sun exposure. Some practitioners get aggressive and give what are known as Stoss dosages of 100 Malik Hooker Jersey ,000 IU every 4 months in the elderly, to prevent osteoporosis for example. Cod liver oil is the most concentrated natural source of vitamin D. One tablespoon contains about 1200 IU. Finding that difficult to consume in order to achieve 4000 IU per day and lacking certainty as to the purity and stability of commercial products, we developed our own concentrated supplement tested free of mercury and other organic toxins, mixed with omega-3 fish and flax seed oils Braden Smith Jersey , GLA containing borage oil. That is what I now take during the fall, winter and early spring when I cannot get the best vitamin D source of all, the sun. Regulatory agencies governing pet foods set the minimum at 500 IUKg of food on a dry matter basis and the upper limit at 5000 IU (i.e. if your pet eats 1 pound of dry food per day it should get approximately 250 - 2500 IU of vitamin D per day, conservatively). Since you cannot know for sure what is in a commercial pet food (http:www.wysong.netdontbefooled.shtml ) Darius Leonard Jersey , don't be fooled, the rotation advised in the Optimal Health Program 芒鈥灺?is advised. At least periodically (3 times per week) giving 1000 IU capsules (may be opened and mixed with food) is a good insurance policy. What you do about vitamin D is unlike what you might do about other supplements. This is something you should take very seriously since vitamin D status is, so-to-speak, a marker for how well we are living in tune with nature. Living in tune with nature and according to the way we are genetically designed is fundamental to the Wysong health philosophy I continually preach. Low vitamin D means you are doing things wrong. Like the little canaries in the cages miners would take with them down into the caves to signal by their death that toxic air was present and the miners better skedaddle out of there Quenton Nelson Jersey , our illnesses are the warning signs in more cases than we have previously imagined that we are not living right. Our cave-like modern living is a bane to good health. The solution is to return to our roots. Roots firmly planted where our health can flower in the sun.
