Otis Chandler remembered at memorial

No two words better describe him,” said Tom Johnson, who succeeded Chandler as publisher and retired as chairman and chief executive of CNN News Group. “He excelled at almost everything he set out to do.” Chandler, who came from a family wielding financial and political power in Los Angeles, succeeded his father as publisher of the Times in 1960 while in his early 30s. Hiring top reporters and editors, and opening bureaus all over the world, within a few years Chandler took a narrow and conservative paper and made it into an internationally respected publication. During Chandler’s 20 years as publisher, and five subsequent years as editor in chief, the paper won nine Pulitzer Prizes, according to the Times’ Web site. Former New York Times publisher Arthur Sulzberger Sr. said the revamped West Coast paper quickly got the attention of New York Times editors and reporters. PASADENA – Friends, family and journalism colleagues on Monday remembered former Los Angeles Times publisher Otis Chandler as a fiercely competitive man who exercised incessantly, drove as fast as possible and used hunter instincts to lift the newspaper from relative obscurity to among the nation’s best. Chandler died last week at age 78. He had a degenerative brain disorder known as Lewy body disease. Though his professional legacy includes helping to build a newspaper that today competes with top national publications, many of the 500-plus people at the memorial said they also remembered Chandler as an outstanding athlete, hunter, car racer and surfer who enjoyed the waves well into his 60s. That larger-than-life persona was emphasized by a life-size portrait of Chandler at the All Saints Church entrance. “Chandler was taking our Pulitzers,” said Sulzberger, who attended the memorial. “He forced us to be better.” Louis D. Boccardi, retired chief executive of The Associated Press, said he repeatedly encouraged Chandler to write a memoir, which never happened. “But maybe he understood that not everybody had to leave a book,” said Boccardi, a longtime Chandler friend. “You could, as he did, leave a newspaper and it would speak volumes.” Living with someone so intense and successful, however, wasn’t always easy for his family. “My father thought good parenting was setting good examples,” said son Harry Chandler. “He was often too busy, or too self-absorbed to come to soccer games or get involved with career events.” But Harry Chandler said his father was always there when his children needed him, was able to apologize when he did wrong, and knew when his competitive spirit wouldn’t be enough to win. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

The Intern’s vPro’s hand’s on experience (Finally!!)

first_imgI got to enjoy a hand’s on experience with vPro this morning, I got tired of just reading everything. Another intern, Nick Molina showed me some capabilities that I have only read in whitepapers and postings from vPro experts. I am not sure on how you like to learn, but one of the best ways for me to learn is to see the product in action. Plus I didn’t really understand it until it was put in front of me. Nick was able to show me different remote capabilities, how the server is able to power on and off the client computers, and how to read the hardware from the client computer through the server. He also showed me how you can apply filters to the network interface that would cut out any outside source (e.g. through the WLAN) that would put the client and/or server in harm. To be able to see this better you should see this YouTube video which shows the same thing as what I was learning from Nick. It’s a bit shorter than what I have experienced, but it gives you the same idea. Watching this, and after reading my blogs of course, it gives you a better understanding of what vPro can do. Intel vPro Technology integration w/Symantec Backup&Restore Chapter 4 should be coming soon. It will be on trusted environments. Stay tuned!!

French Open: 5 things to watch out for in semifinals!

first_imgRafael Nadal has been sensational with 65 wins against a single defeat in ParisIn what promises to be a blockbuster Friday, three of the biggest stars in tennis will be in action to secure their finals berth for the coveted French Open final.On one hand, world number 2 Novak Djokovic will lock horns with No. 18 Ernests Gulbis – the only man from Latvia to enter a Grand Slam tournament, while the other semifinal promises a cracker of a game with world number 1 and king of clay Rafael Nadal taking on Britain’s best bet Andy Murray.Nadal has been sensational with 64 wins against a single defeat at Roland Garros. His only loss at the tournament came against Robin Soderling in the 4th round in 2009.Murray will be playing in the French Open semifinals for the second time; he lost to Nadal in 2011. In all, Nadal owns a 14-5 edge in their head-to-head matches.Five things to look for in the men’s semifinals Friday at the French Open:NADAL’S STREAKHeading into his semifinal against Andy Murray, No. 1-ranked Rafael Nadal’s French Open record is a hard-to-believe 64-1, a run that includes eight titles – more than any man has won at any of the Grand Slam tournaments – and a 33-match winning streak. The lone loss came to Robin Soderling in the fourth round in 2009. Nadal is trying to become the first man to win five consecutive French Opens.NADAL vs MURRAYNadal or Murray has participated in each of the last 17 Grand Slam finals, a stretch that dates to the 2010 Australian Open. That will become 18 major finals in a row at this French Open, of course. But in none of those instances did Nadal and Murray face each other for the title. Eight of their 19 previous career matchups came at majors, with Nadal holding a 6-2 edge – once in the fourth round, once in a quarterfinal, and six in semifinals. Overall, Nadal leads 14-5. This meeting makes them the only two men in the Open era, which began in 1968, to have met at least twice at each Grand Slam.advertisementMURRAY ON CLAYEveryone knows just how good Nadal is on red clay. But Murray, whose major titles came on grass at Wimbledon and on hard courts at the U.S. Open, is proving rather adept at handling the slow surface, too. This is his second French Open semifinal – he made it that far in 2011, before losing to Nadal, naturally – and he made clear after his five-set victory over Gael Monfils in the quarterfinals that he is not satisfied. “It’s definitely a big achievement, but that’s not what I came here to do. Yeah, my goals are different and my expectations are different to a lot of people,” Murray said. “I expect a lot of myself. I put a lot of pressure on myself to perform well at these events, and thankfully I have done OK so far. Still hopefully a long way to go in the tournament.”DJOKOVIC vs GULBISNo. 2 Novak Djokovic meets No. 18 Ernests Gulbis, the only man from Latvia to enter a Grand Slam tournament, in Friday’s opening semifinal. Djokovic holds a 4-1 lead in head-to-head matches, including a straight-set win in the 2008 French Open quarterfinals, the only other time Gulbis made it that far at a major. They go way back: Both attended a tennis academy in Munich in their early teens.GLUTEN-FREEDjokovic, a six-time major champion, needs a French Open title to complete a career Grand Slam. He’s talked often – and even written a book – about how changes to his eating habits, including dispensing with gluten, helped him overcome problems with fitness and allergies early in his career. And Gulbis? He was asked this week why he needed a half-dozen years to get back to the latter stages of a major after doing so initially as a teenager. “What took me so long? I think I was eating wrong. I had the wrong diet,” he said with a laugh. “Everybody was talking about this gluten-free diet. My diet is full-on gluten. I like a lot of ketchup, a lot of unhealthy stuff, so there is a balance which I found in the last couple of years.”(With AP inputs)last_img read more
