Highest-Paid CEOs Run Worst-Performing Companies, Research Finds

Date: Wed, 27. July 2016 04:04:09
An anonymous reader writes from a report via The Independent: According to a study carried out by corporate research firm MSCI, CEO's that get paid the most run some of the worst-performing companies. It found that every $100 invested in companies with the highest-paid CEOs would have grown to $265 over 10 years. However, the same amount invested in the companies with the lowest-paid CEOs would have grown to $367 over 10 years. The report, titled "Are CEOs paid for performance? Evaluating the Effectiveness of Equity Incentives," looked at the salaries of 800 CEOs at 429 large and medium-sized U.S. companies between 2005 and 2014 and compared it with the total shareholder return of the companies. Senior corporate governance research at MSCI, Ric Marshall, said in a statement: "The highest paid had the worse performance by a significant margin. It just argues for the equity portion of CEO pay to be more conservative." Read more of this story at Slashdot.

Beware of counterfeit versions of top Android, iOS apps

Date: Sun, 29. December 2013 13:55:00
Cybercriminals are using third-party app sites to peddle reverse-engineered versions?essentially counterfeit or pirated?of almost all the most popular paid apps available on the Google Play and Apple App Stores, software firm Arxan has discovered. The firm uncovered this parallel app universe in a similar piece of research last year and for 2013 not much appears to have changed. Looking at a total of 230 apps?the top 100 paid apps and top 15 free apps for Android and iOS?Arxan found that 100 percent of the top paid apps on Android and 56 percent on iOS were being impersonated in a compromised form on grey markets. For free apps, the analysis found that 73 percent of Android apps in the top 15 existed in a bogus form on third-party stores, slightly worse than the 53 percent for iOS. Arxan also looked at popular financial apps, 20 from each platform, finding that a half of the Android samples existed as hacked versions with a quarter for Android.

Date: Fri, 30. August 2013 12:34:00
When it comes to tapping into U.S. telecommunications networks for surreptitious surveillance, the National Security Agency can?t be accused of not paying its way. The government agency pays ?hundreds of millions of dollars a year? to U.S. telecommunications companies for the equipment and service required to intercept telephone calls, emails and instant messages of potential interest, according to a story in Thursday?s Washington Post. For the current fiscal year, the NSA will pay $278 million for such access, and had paid $394 million in fiscal 2011, according to the Post. Although previous news reports of NSA surveillance noted that the agency paid the costs for tapping into communications networks, the exact amount the agency has paid has not been cited before, according to the Post.

Date: Mon, 12. February 2018 22:28:22

The report released by McCaskill, the U.S. Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee's ranking Democrat, said the groups issued guidance promoting opioids for chronic pain and lobbied against laws to curb their use.
