Airbnb received cloud contract extension, S-1 reveals

first_imgThe first AWS services became available in 2006, and Airbnb has been using AWS since 2008. The payments, search, reservations, messaging and content moderation functions of Airbnb have drawn on AWS resources, among other things, Airbnb executives have said during talks at AWS’ Reinvent conferences.In the nine months that ended on Sept. 30, Airbnb saw a $63.5 million year-over-year decrease in hosting costs, which contributed to a $26% decline in Airbnb’s cost of revenue. Airbnb said the change stemmed from “better contract management and utilization of our third-party cloud services.” Airbnb declined to comment on the change; Amazon didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment.WATCH: Alibaba’s cloud business to become ‘less of a drag’ on profitability, analyst says With the coronavirus pandemic hurting travel companies earlier this year, Airbnb got an extension for a cloud spending commitment from a data hosting provider that will help it manage costs.Airbnb originally had a $1.2 billion commitment with AWS at the end of 2019 over the next five years, but at some point this year, the companies agreed to extend the agreement to eight years, according to the prospectus. That means Airbnb is on the hook to spend an average of $150 million per year, rather than $240 million per year, on these services.It’s a helpful cushion this year, with people being more reluctant to take vacations or work trips. It’s not clear yet when personal and business travel will return to pre-pandemic levels.- Advertisement – – Advertisement – Airbnb disclosed the adjustment in the prospectus for its initial public offering, which became publicly available on Monday. Airbnb didn’t name the provider outright but said elsewhere in the filing that its main hosting provider is Amazon.Amazon provides remote computing and data storage capability to many companies that have gone public in the past few years, including Slack and Snowflake. An adjustment to terms can make sure that one of the hot names it has touted for so long won’t be switching to competitors like Microsoft or Google, or facing undue challenges because of one of its suppliers.In May, with the pandemic in full effect, Airbnb said it was cutting 25% of employees. Airbnb’s revenue declined 24% sequentially in the first quarter, and it fell 60% in the second quarter, according to Monday’s filing. Revenue rebounded in the third quarter, although it was still down on an annualized basis.- Advertisement –center_img Brian Chesky, chief executive officer and co-founder of Airbnb Inc., speaks during an Economic Club of New York luncheon at the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) in New York, U.S., on Monday, March 13, 2017.Michael Nagle | Bloomberg | Getty Images – Advertisement –last_img read more

It’s special of course. There is sadness with the club with where we are and this and that. There is also excitement with what we can do tomorrow and the chance we have to play. It’s a great honour and that’s what I said to the players. You guys have to do the job, I can help and support them but for me it’s a great, great honour.How does it feel to have been chosen for the role of Arsenal manager?I was proud and honoured that they thought about me that it’s such and important thing and they trusted and believed in me to deliver that. I felt excitement because I feel we have some very, very good football players here it’s an amazing club.How long will you be in charge of the Arsenal first team for?There is no indication of how long or how short they just said concentrate on the next game, do as well as you can and we’ll see from there. For me I concentrate on those players we have a game tomorrow and try to do the best I can.Do you want the Arsenal manager’s job full-time?For me it’s about the team and the club. I try to concentrate for the future. We have a game tomorrow we need to try and win that, there might be a few other games but for me that’s what I look at. The other stuff is totally irrelevant.Do you want to be a manager?We’ll see in the future. At the moment I’m learning the trade trying to be doing everything to prep myself. Of course it’s an honour that the club thinks I’m ready to take this big responsibility. But at the moment I concentrate game by game.How will you get the Arsenal squad smiling again?A lot comes from staff ourselves and a lot depends on playing good football. I was in the Bundesliga with Wolfsburg. We got in when they were almost getting relegated. There is a lot of pressure at a big club when people are down. So I’ve had experience of players and staff being down and low. There are things in my opinion that you can do. At the end of the day if you play good football and have results there is nothing better than that to raise spirits.Who will be on your Arsenal coaching staff?I have been asked to try to organise what I can and stuff. It’s been a quick turnaround trying to look at Norwich and sort everything out but we will have things in place for the game tomorrow.AdvertisementAdvertisementWill Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang remain as Arsenal captain?I believe just because it’s me now I’m not going to make big, enormous changes I will keep those things as it is. There has been so many things and discussions with the media I’ll leave that and I will concentrate on how we’ll play and what we can do on the football pitch. You’ll see that tomorrow [who the captain is].How was the mood in training after Unai Emery was sacked?It’s a bit of a strange one. Not strange, but a bit of sadness there we had a coach for a long, long time he was a good coach and also other coaching staff that all of a sudden disappears. It is a very cut throat thing in football and of course players are emotional as well and they will react on that. What I tried to do was be as respectful as I could in that sequence and then after that when I trained the players I just tried to take sessions where there is a little bit of excitement, try to make them not think too much and just enjoy themselves and hopefully get them in a good mood because we had a game on Thursday, there was not the whole squad.Who should be Unai Emery’s permanent replacement at Arsenal?Freddie Ljungberg0%Mauricio Pochettino0%Mikel Arteta0%Carlo Ancelotti0%Nuno Espirito Santo0%Share your resultsShare your resultsTweet your resultsMORE: Granit Xhaka accused of lying to Arsenal boss Unai Emery about injuryMORE: Granit Xhaka accused of lying to Arsenal boss Unai Emery about injury Advertisementcenter_img Advertisement Full transcript: Freddie Ljungberg’s first interview as Arsenal managerlast_img read more

Southampton shocked by Arsenal signing Cedric Soares

first_img Comment Southampton shocked by Arsenal signing Cedric Soares Soares surprisingly signed for Arsenal (Picture: Getty)Southampton were reportedly stunned by Arsenal’s pursuit of Cedric Soares and were pleasantly surprised to offload him to the Emirates in the January transfer window.Saints chiefs expected Soares, whose contract expires at the end of the season, to be seeking a move away from the club but were expecting his representatives to be in talks with lower league clubs or teams abroad and to lose him on a free when his current deal ended.They could scarcely believe a club of Arsenal’s stature was coming in for the Portuguese right-back, particularly when it was revealed he had suffered knee ligament damage away to Crystal Palace on January 21.

France opens probe into figure skating underage sex abuse claims

first_imgFrench Sports Minister Roxana Maracineanu has called on Didier Gailhaguet (right) to step down as ice skating federation president in the wake of allegations of sexual abuse of minors within the sport“The weight of facts and their continuation over time illustrate that a general dysfunction exists within the federation,” she said.“Didier Gailhaguet cannot absolve himself of his moral and personal responsibility, so I have asked him to assume all his responsibilities and resign.”Maracineanu, a former swimming world champion, does not have the power to sack Gailhaguet but intimated that the federation would face state sanctions if he remains. Gailhaguet is due to hold a press conference on Wednesday.Gailhaguet admitted to “mistakes”, but defended his record on this matter.“She did not listen to me and she certainly didn’t hear me,” said the 66-year-old who has been the most influential man in French ice skating since he first became president in 1998, some years after the alleged offences.Gailhaguet has been president ever since apart from a three-year hiatus between 2004 and 2007 which followed a judging scandal at the 2002 Winter Olympics in Salt Lake City.He was suspended by the International Skating Union for three years from 2002 and duly gave up, temporarily, the presidency of the French federation.Gailhaguet’s accession to the presidency in 1998 opened the door for Beyer to take charge of the French national team. At the start of the 2000s, another skater made a complaint against Beyer which was followed up at administrative level but not by the judiciary. On Friday, 62-year-old Beyer admitted to having had “intimate” and “inappropriate” relations, telling AFP he was “sincerely sorry” and apologising. “I acknowledge having had intimate relationships with her,” Beyer said in a statement. “If my memories of the exact circumstances differ from hers, I am aware that, given my duties and her age at the time, these relationships were inappropriate.” Racle has denied the accusations while Lotz has not commented. – Calls for resignation – Abitbol’s claims, which came on the heels of French tennis coach Andrew Geddes being jailed for 18 years for raping four underage players, gathered further pace on Monday when sports minister Maracineanu told Didier Gailhaguet to quit as president of France’s ice skating federation. Read Also: Cricket: Injured Sharma out of India’s New Zealand tourThe investigation led the sports ministry to remove him from his technical role at the federation, but he remained a coach at club level and held an executive position at the federation until 2018.Gailhaguet on Monday attempted to deflect blame for Beyer’s return to the federation following that inquiry, turning it instead on former sports minister Marie-George Buffet, who he was careful not to name.“She removed him from us and she returned him,” he said.Buffet dismissed Gailhaguet’s accusation as “some fog to escape the depth of the case”.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail分享 French prosecutors said Tuesday they had opened an investigation into claims of rape and sexual abuse of minors in figure skating following claims made by a former world championship medallist. The probe, hailed as a “strong signal” by French Sports Minister Roxana Maracineanu and in which “the words of the victims must be heard”, will focus on allegations made by skater Sarah Abitbol last week in her autobiography that she was raped by coach Gilles Beyer between the ages of 15 and 17. French prosecutors hae opened an inquiry into allegations of underage sexual abuse made by former world bronze medallist Sarah Abitbol (pictured) last week “He (Beyer) started to do horrible things leading to sexual abuse and I was raped at 15,” said Abitbol, now 44, in a video interview with L’Obs last week. The inquiry will also “attempt to identify all the other victims who suffered… offences of the same nature”, Paris-based prosecutor Remy Heitz said in a statement. On the day that Abitbol’s revelations emerged, sports daily L’Equipe published an investigation in which three other skaters accused Beyer and two other coaches, Jean-Roland Racle and Michel Lotz, of abuse and rape when they were minors. Further allegations of underage sexual abuse emerged from former swimmers and tennis players.center_img Promoted ContentBirds Enjoy Living In A Gallery Space Created For Them7 Ways To Understand Your Girlfriend BetterThe Very Last Bitcoin Will Be Mined Around 2140.

EPL: Man U end Liverpool winning run

first_imgRelatedPosts Mane double eases Liverpool to win over 10-man Chelsea Mane beats De Bruyne to PFA Fans’ Player award De Bruyne wins Premier League Player of the Season Manchester United have ended Liverpool’s 17-match winning run and 100% start to the season courtesy of a 1-1 draw at Old Trafford on Sunday.United rose to the occasion despite going into the match having won just twice in their last 13 league games, and Marcus Rashford gave them the lead in controversial circumstances nine minutes before the end of the first half.VAR was again the talking point at half time after allowing that goal to stand and denying Liverpool an equaliser through Sadio Mane, and for much of the contest it looked as though Liverpool would fall to just their second defeat in 48 Premier League games.Adam Lallana’s equaliser five minutes from time rescued a point for the visitors late on, though, leaving them six clear of champions Manchester City despite failing to win in the league for the first time since March 3.United took the lead as Rashford finished off a Daniel James cross at the end of a devastating counter-attack, although it was the events in the build-up to that which courted controversy.Liverpool felt there was a foul on Origi when United won the ball back and the decision was checked by VAR, which upheld Martin Atkinson’s on-field call to let play carry on.The visitors’ frustration with VAR was increased just six minutes later when they had a goal of their own disallowed, although on this occasion the ruling was clearer as the ball hit the hand of Mane while he controlled it before holding off Victor Lindelof and firing past De Gea.United’s pace on the counter was always a lingering threat and almost brought about the second goal which has proved so elusive in recent weeks when Rashford fired narrowly wide.Fred also had two sights of goal, the second of which came closest, but United were once again made to pay for their inability to kill a game off when Liverpool levelled things up five minutes from time.It had been difficult to see where an equaliser would come from until one of many poor crosses, this time from Andrew Robertson, found its way all the way through to the back post, where Lallana was waiting to tuck it home.The goal entirely changed the atmosphere inside the stadium and the momentum on the pitch, with Liverpool suddenly looking most like scoring as Trent Alexander-Arnold and Oxlade-Chamberlain both came close.United held on throughout five minutes of stoppage time to pick up a draw which lifts them up a place to 13th in the Premier League, having made their worst start to a season since 1986-87.The Reds are still winless at Old Trafford under Klopp and have only won one of their last 11 league meetings with their biggest rivals, with five of the last seven ending as draws.However, they remain unbeaten this season and in control of the Premier League title race after almost a quarter of the season, extending their undefeated streak to 26 games stretching back to January 3.Tags: Sadio Manelast_img read more

Martinez a Sam fan

first_img He has 10 players undergoing treatment at the moment, among them left-back Leighton Baines and midfielders James McCarthy, Gareth Barry and Steven Pienaar. With Baines rated “touch and go” and John Stones, Antolin Alcaraz and Bryan Oviedo all out, it is likely Martinez will have to tinker with his defence with Luke Garbutt in line for his first Premier League start after a one-minute debut as a substitute in April. Allardyce has again called for a winter break after Sakho and Stewart Downing both returned from international duty with injuries. The form of Sakho and Downing has been a key part in the Irons’ positive start to the campaign, climbing up to fourth place. However, both Downing, who came off at half-time of England’s friendly against Scotland because of a knee injury, and Sakho – unable to take part in Senegal’s African Nations Cup qualifier against Botswana because of a back injury – are major doubts. Allardyce has long been a fan of recharging everyone’s batteries – and sees no reason why a short break after the hectic Christmas schedule cannot be worked into the domestic schedule. “The demand on the players in the Premier League is so great for so long and so often that eventually they are going to break down at some stage,” he said. “If you look at the load this year on players, it gets greater than ever before. Not only do they travel at international level across the world, but the constant pressure of the Premier League is getting faster and more demanding, both physically and mentally. “The time they have to rest is fewer and further between and that ultimately ends up with players never really recovering fully enough to go into the next game, hence they go into a game with a knock or a bruise and it ends up resulting in an injury.” However, that appears to have been forgotten as wins against defending champions Manchester City and runners-up Liverpool have helped the side into the Champions League places. “Sam is a very experienced manager who has been in this league for a long time,” said Martinez ahead of their meeting at Goodison Park on Saturday. “He has been building clubs, coping with big expectations, but he always guarantees results. “What he has done with West Ham this season is find a good balance of a side who can be difficult to play against but still really threaten in dead-ball situations but now they have brought in flair and players who can score goals out of nothing from open play and that is a really strong combination. “In football you make your own choices and decisions and there are many styles you can play and it is up to fans to like or dislike that. “Winning is important; for certain people in the game the only thing that matters is the result, for others who are a bit more romantic they appreciate more the way you win or the way you want to play than just the short-term result. “I think it can be a really successful year for West Ham.” Martinez’s concern as his side return from the international break looking to build on seven points from their last three matches is a growing injury list. This season Allardyce has added a more attacking element to his style to capitalise on the summer signings of Enner Valencia and Diafra Sakho and that has taken the Hammers into the top four. The former Bolton, Newcastle and Blackburn boss has long been associated with a more direct brand of football which brought criticism from his own fans last season, when they finished 14th. Everton manager Roberto Martinez admits West Ham counterpart Sam Allardyce may sometimes be criticised for his methods but fans have to accept he “guarantees” results.
