Israel eavesdropped on Secretary John Kerry during Middle East negotiations in 2013

The US and Israel have been staunch allies for decades, but that doesn’t mean that the two nations aren’t keeping an eye on each other. Der Spiegel reports that Israeli intelligence agents wiretapped US Secretary of State John Kerry the last time he tried to broker a peace deal in the Middle East, in 2013. The German paper cites “reliable sources” who say that some of Secretary Kerry’s negotiation efforts between Israel, Palestine, and Arab states were carried out using unencrypted telephone equipment.

The 2011-2016 Outlook for Active-Matrix Organic Light-Emitting Diode (OLED) Displays in The Middle East

The 2011-2016 Outlook for Active-Matrix Organic Light-Emitting Diode (OLED) Displays in The Middle East

This econometric study covers the outlook for active-matrix organic light-emitting diode (oled) displays in the Middle East. For each year reported, estimates are given for the latent demand, or potential industry earnings (P.I.E.), for the country in question (in millions of U.S. dollars), the percent share the country is of the region and of the globe. These comparative benchmarks allow the reader to quickly gauge a country vis-a-vis others. Using econometric models which project fundamental economic dynamics within each country and across countries, latent demand estimates are created. This report does not discuss the specific players in the market serving the latent demand, nor specific details at the product level. The study also does not consider short-term cyclicalities that might affect realized sales. The study, therefore, is strategic in nature, taking an aggregate and long-run view, irrespective of the players or products involved.

This study does not report actual sales data (which are simply unavailable, in a comparable or consistent manner in virtually all of the countries in the Middle East). This study gives, however, my estimates for the latent demand, or the P.I.E. for active-matrix organic light-emitting diode (oled) displays in the Middle East. It also shows how the P.I.E. is divided across the national markets of the Middle East. For each country, I also show my estimates of how the P.I.E. grows over time (positive or negative growth). In order to make these estimates, a multi-stage methodology was employed that is often taught in courses on international strategic planning at graduate schools of business.

Amtrak Adds WiFi To 12 New East Coast Routes, California’s Up Next

amtrak-train

Attention workaholics: your business trip a la rail was just made more efficient, if you’re using Amtrak, of course. The nation’s intercity railway has just added Wi-Fi service to 12 new East Coast routes, bringing the interwebs to almost 60 percent of all Amtrak passengers.

Among the freshly connected routes, major lines include the Northeast Regional (between Virginia and Boston), Keystone Service (New York, Philadelphia and Harrisburg), and Empire Service (New York, Albany and Buffalo). Other routes to receive the service are the Carolinian, Downeaster, Ethan Allen Express, the New Haven-Springfield Shuttle and the Vermonter. Four other routes will also have access to WiFi — Adirondack, Maple Leaf, Palmetto, and Pennsylvanian — however service on those routes will be limited to specific cars marked with WiFi hotspot stickers.

The difficulty with train WiFi is limited bandwidth along most routes, but Amtrak is working with cellular companies to try and boost coverage. The next phase of WiFi expansion will occur in California. The Capitol Corridor, Pacific Surfliner and San Joaquin trains will all receive WiFi service by the end of 2011, bringing the total of internet-connected Amtrak passengers to 75 percent.
