Putin: Syria chemical attack was provocation against Assad
Russian President Vladimir Putin says a chemical attack in Syria was a provocation against Syrian President Bashar Assad. He said India had been working to protect the environment even before the Paris deal reached in 2015.
Late past year, AOL announced 500 jobs cuts and said they were unrelated to the impending Yahoo merger.
"Oath's strategy is to lead the global brand space", an AOL spokesperson told TechCrunch. With access to over 1 [billion] consumers upon close, we will be positioned to drive one of the most important platforms in the consumer brand space. During an all-company meeting with AOL and Yahoo in May, he was asked by employees what would happen to them.
Sources reporting to TechCrunch claim as many as 2,100 jobs, or roughly 15 percent of their combined global workforce, are in jeopardy.
