Yang Steps Down As Yahoo CEO, Search For Successor Begins(November 17, 2008 TechCrunch)
Expect Yahoo’s share price to jump tomorrow – Jerry Yang will be stepping down as CEO of the company, a job that he took on an interim basis in June 2007.
I think that the speed that Yahoo and Yang determine was slow.
I think the decrease in the image to be avoided a little more if new CEO is chosen earlier.
Even if he has the talent, the person has the role for the enterprise.
And, Yahoo should have had the necessity that had to be changed.
If the timing is missed, it is likely to become such a result.
Though it is a result theory at the current stage to the end.

The evaluation of Japan is rising now.
The financial panic influences America and European countries, and stock prices dive.
There is no influence on finance like America and European countries though the United States sliding stock price is received, and stock prices of Japan have fallen, too.
Only yen of Japan rises though the value of the currency of Europe and America such as the United States dollar and the Euro of Europe has fallen.
It is because of thinking that the economy of Japan is steady.
The bank in Japan has not received this influence so much because it had not done the investment with the risk too much though the bank in each country of Europe and America received the influence by the subprime loan.
Japan should act as a leader only at such time.
It is necessary to hold G7 promptly, and to talk how to recover finance in the world.
The problem like the safety of food and the falsification of the pension, etc. is accumulations to Japan.
However, the world will really rush into the panic the way things are going.
Japan should do politics with wider view.
Japan should act for the world with leadership only now.

Apple stock falls thanks to financial panic, down 14% (September 29, 2008 CrunchGear)
AlleyInsider is reporting that AAPL is down to $110 – 14% – due to stock downgrades by Morgan Stanely and RBC.
I hear that stock prices of Apple fell by 14%.
It might begin to be feared that American citizen with a vigorous buying intention consumes it by financial turmoil.
Hereafter, the consumption of the United States is sure to become duller.
Though it only has not to become world crises.
It might already rushed into world crises when being see from the future.

Element Bars: Built-To-Order Nutrition Bars That Don’t Taste Like Chalk(September 17, 2008 TechCrunch)
Health food stores are filled with a myriad of apparently magical supplement bars, guaranteeing everything from a stronger immune system to enhanced eyesight. But for all their variety, most of them taste horrible. Element Bars, an Illinois-based startup launching today, is handing the reins over to the public, giving users the chance to build their own (hopefully better tasting) supplement bars.
Judging from this article, “Supplement bars” seems to be popular.
Though supplement bars comes to be known gradually, supplement bar is not popular in Japan yet.
I hear that the start-up introduced to this article is offering the supplement bars which built-to-order can do.
To build a bar, users are first asked to pick a base texture, with options including “Oaty”, “Crispy”, and “Datey”. From there, they gradually add fruits, nuts, sweets, and finally a choice of “Boosts” – the powdered supplements that contain large portions of protein, fiber, or antioxidants. While users are free to create whatever combinations they’d like, the site will warn them if one of their choices will probably turn their bar into a chalky mess (for example, it recommends against adding excessive protein to an Oaty bar).
I think that the drink type or the grain type is a main current if it is said supplements in Japan.
Therefore, I do not understand goodness of the supplement bars.
However, it is interesting to be able to choose feeling of quality, the taste, and the Boosts of the supplement bar according to my favor.
The site says that all ingredients are all-natural and minimally processed, without any artificial sweeteners or processed starches. CEO Jonathan Miller explains that as a result a well-designed bar will generally taste much better than those purchased in a store, though he acknowledges that users might not be able to pack in as many grams of protein as they can get from mass-produced “artificial” bars.
Because the raw material is a natural material, and the artificial sweeteners etc. are not used on this site, it seems to be able to use it at ease according to the article.
Bars run $36 for a pack of 12, though users can get a $6 discount if they purchase bars that are listed under the popular section of the site (ElementBars gives a discount because they can order these in bulk). Miller says that an average order should arrive within 7-10 days.
If Element Bars can prove that its bars are either better tasting or healthier than the competition, it could find itself in a very profitable niche. Health fanatics are notoriously picky when it comes to the food they eat, and will probably flock to the service. Another startup in this space is YouBars, which also crafts built-to-order supplement bars.
The site where the supplement of built-to-order can be made will increase in Japan in the future.
