The Coriant brand has been leading a group of new companies looking to break into the higher echelons of the optical networking industry after the company was created by the investment company Marlin Equity Partnres. Coriant was created from various parts of the Nokia Siemens company, Tellabs, and Sycamore to become one of the largest new entrants into the optical networking area of new technologies. A planned move from the very beginning was for CEO and Chairman Pat DiPietro to return to his executive role at Marlin once Coriant had been establi8shed, which left a vacancy at the top of the Coriant brand.
Veteran technology executive Shaygan Kheradpir has now stepped into the role of CEO at Coriant after he was empoyed by Marlin to conduct a profitability study at the company; after completing the study Kheradpir was offered the role of CEO and board Chairperson that allows him to use his knowledge of Coriant to full effect. The move is a good one for both Kheradpir and Coriant as the executive is given the chance to extend his career, and Coriant gets more than 25 years of experience at its helm.
Shaygan Kherapdir will bring a large amount of product development experience that has been developed over the course of his time spent working with technology companies like Verizon and GTE Labs. Kheradpir has not stood still in his career by simply looking to develop a technology based number of business skills, but also entered the financial industry as the first technology executive to sit on the board of Barclays. Under the leadership of Kheradpir the PingIt mobile payments platform was developed by Barclays and remains an important aspect of its business plan.
In a bid to maintain continuity within the Coriant brand Pat DiPietro will remain in place as Chairman to oversee the work completed by the company; however, the day to day running of the company will be placed in the hands of Cornell University graduate Kheradpir. The ability to maximize profits is one of the major areas of experience Shaygan Kheradpir has, which allowed him the chance to lower costs for Verizon’s information tecnology department below the industry standard.

The thing that has made Skout the leader when it comes to social media is the ability that the Skout developers have at keeping their users entertained. This is something that acquires attention from the people that are developing the site. So many social media sites leave it up to the users to interact with one another, but even that can become boring from time to time. Skout takes care of this boredom that social media can bring by adding in some interesting articles that make people think.
Recently, the Skout site recognized National Potato Chip Day. This was a fun way for Skout to reveal what certain flavors tell about a certain person. There was a survey for Skout users, and the results were revealed through an article on the PR News Wire website. This is the type of survey that can be a great ice breaker when it comes to meeting strangers. Skout is the site that goes that extra mile by actually giving the registered users something that is worthy of fun conversation.
This is the first time that Skout developers have gone to the trouble of doing this. There was a time when the Skout site informed people about Random Kindness Week. There was another opportunity for people to become informed and join in on the conversation about Skout when the company participated in feeding the homeless. This was just another time when Skout was able to stir up conversation about something that was interesting.
It is good to have a site like Skout that does these types of surveys along with providing this type of information. This is a wonderful experience for all of those that are interested in chatting with someone new online. They may not be able to think of anything to say at first, but some of the Skout conversation worthy events may open things up to a whole new world of dialogue.
This is the largest global platform for meeting people, and millions of people have chosen to take advantage of this. This is a site that has given people the opportunity to make friends. It has also given people the ability to find dates and jobs. It is a diverse platform that caters to the needs of so many different people. There are even new features like Skout Travel that have made it possible to take virtual tours of cities.

Business For Home is a website who recently shared an article about Talk Fusion that has some interesting implications.
Talk Fusion is the brainchild of Bob Reina. He is the company’s CEO, as well as its founder. Starting in 2007, his organization began putting together proprietary technology designed to give multi-platform support. The technology is a high-definition form of mobile/computer application that allows face-to-face video conversation in the way most people have imagined since Johnny Quest started talking to Dr. Quest on his watch-vid device. Well, since Apple has come out with the new iWatch, and since Talk Fusion’s technology allows for multi-platform support, it’s very likely that fantasy can now be a reality. Apple, PC, Android and tablet options are all fair game for Talk Fusion.
But more than being an innovation which is continuously rising in popularity (Talk Fusion’s marketing endeavors have compassed some 140 countries), Bob Reina makes sure that his successful organization gives back to the community. High standards of ethical business practices are what have earned Talk Fusion the right to be a member of the DSA, or Direct Selling Association. Furthermore, the organization regularly gives back to families and communities, as well as animal charities, worldwide. The idea is to not only bring about progressive technological innovation, it’s to induce positive change in a global sense.
Talk Fusion is now available with a thirty day free trial that requires no credit card to set up. For thirty days, you get complete access to all the apps involved in Talk Fusion, and once you’ve tried it, you’re probably going to want to keep trying it. In Indonesia, Talk Fusion is currently the number one app. It’s number five in Japan, which is likewise huge, and it is steadily climbing the ladder of popularity in Switzerland, coming across as the twentieth most-used app on the market currently.
The future is now, and now you can talk face-to-face with people in high definition with ease through Talk Fusion, a revolutionary new way to communicate. Its easy enough to set up a free account for a thirty day trial; certainly more will be using Talk Fusion soon.
Eucatex could be described as a company that was ahead of its time when it comes to concern for the environment. It was in fact the first Brazilian company to utilize eucalyptus fiber to produce ceiling tiles and panels. Eucatex is today the second largest producer of wood fiber products, capturing some 40 percent of the world market. It has over the years expanded its production capabilities to include such items as laminate flooring, steel roofing material and even household paints.
Eucatex is guided by Flavio Maluf, who assumed the position of company CEO in 2005 and is largely credited for its expansion over the past decade. The 54-year-old Twitter user Maluf was born in Sao Paulo with a name that was already etched into Brazilian history. His father Paulo was a famed Brazilian politican who has served as a city mayor, state governor and member of the Brazilian National Congress. The younger Maluf showed his interests in production and manufacturing at an early age, graduating with a degree in engineering. He would later study administration at New York University before returning to his native Brazil in 1987.
In his role as the CEO of Eucatex, he has overseen the continued growth of the firm. His emphasis has been in both the expansion of existing facilities and the development of new products. The engineering “bug” seems to run in the family. Wikipedia indicates Maluf and his wife have three children, and their oldest daughter has graduated with a degree in chemical engineering. Another child is studying engineering in England. That’s even why Flavio Maluf wrote an article about Dupont’s chemical merger, considering how much he knows about Brazil’s chemical industry.
Established in 1951, Eucatex opened its first mill in the Brazilian town of Salto. Production capacity eventually increased to 100 tons a day. In the 1960s, the company opened additional mills and, in extending its services internationally, would by the 1980s open offices in the United States, Mexico, England, Germany and Holland. Opening a new factory in Salto in 1994, Eucatex would begin producing paints and varnishes. In 2010, it started producing its first advanced technology panels. The company today employs more than 2,200 workers and exports its products to nearly 40 countries. Eucatex was the first Brazilian company of its type to receive an ISO 9001 certification, honoring quality management and high standards.
