Chairman Of Temple University’s Board Slams Marc Lamont Hill For Comments About Israel

Activist and author Marc Lamont Hill received backlash after what some are calling controversial comments about Israel. CNN fired him and Temple University originally spoke out saying “he has a constitutionally protected right to express his opinion as a private citizen.” However, now the board chair of Temple  University is speaking out and he is slamming the professor of media studies and urban education

SEE ALSO: Texas Cop Shoots Unarmed Black Man For Entering His Own Truck

Chairman of Temple University’s board Patrick O’Connor, who is also a lawyer, said on CNN, “It should be made clear that no one at Temple is happy with his comments. Free speech is one thing. Hate speech is entirely different.” He continued, “I’m not happy. The board’s not happy. The administration’s not happy. People wanted to fire him right away. We’re going to look at what remedies we have.”

Marc Lamont Hill was tenure so it will be difficult to fire him.

That said, in an email to The Washington Times, Temple University said, “Marc Lamont Hill has been quoted extensively over the last 24 hours. Marc Lamont Hill does not represent Temple University and his views are his own. However, we acknowledge that he has a constitutionally protected right to express his opinion as a private citizen.”

At the United Nations on Wednesday, Hill said in a speech, “We have an opportunity to not just offer solidarity in words but to commit to political action, grassroots action, local action, and international action that will give us what justice requires and that is a free Palestine from the river to the sea.”

He continued, “Contrary to western mythology, Black resistance to American apartheid did not come purely through Gandhi and nonviolence, rather slave revolts and self-defense and tactics otherwise divergent from Dr. King or Mahatma Gandhi were equally important to preserving safety and attaining freedom. If we are to operate in true solidarity with the Palestinian people, we must allow the Palestinian people the same range of opportunity and political possibility.”

ENTERTAINMENT UPDATE:

Guangzhou Auto Group Chairman Sees Fewer Cars, More Services in the Future

Automobiles are becoming vehicles in a different sense. The cars of the future, besides ferrying people from A to B, will also act as conduits for value added services, opening up new opportunities for the mobility sector.

Speaking at the Fortune Global Tech Forum in Guangzhou, Bill Peng, a partner at PwC’s consulting subsidiary Strategy&, highlighted three ways advances in technology will impact the auto industry. Firstly, products will be more creative. Secondly, car ownership will decline. And lastly, the auto industry supply chain will be transformed as automakers vie to provide more longterm customer services.

Peng’s second point is a particular threat to carmakers in China. In August a report from Strategy& revealed that 79% of Chinese car owners would give up their vehicles if on-demand, autonomous vehicles, also known as “robotaxis”, became available. For comparison, in Europe that percentage is 47% and for the U.S. Peng thinks the proportion is only around 30%.

Zeng Qinghong, the chairman of Guangzhou Auto Group (GAC) says his company is already responding to that challenge. Last year GAC expanded its business focus to include the realm of mobility as a service, or MaaS – a market which Peng predicts will be worth $ 200 billion globally by 2020. At last year’s Guangzhou auto show, GAC unveiled its iSPACE concept car, offering a glimpse of what pivoting towards MaaS might look like for the automaker.

The iSPACE was developed in partnership with Tencent, the Chinese tech giant most famous for its instant messaging service, WeChat. The autonomous electric vehicle runs on Tencent’s “AI in Car” operating system, which enables it to recognize users as they enter the vehicle, and customize the driving experience to suit their tastes – selecting music, tv shows, and even preferred routes.

Tencent, which announced major restructuring in October to focus on business services, might seem like an odd partner for an auto company but Zhong Xiangping, Tencent’s head of Intelligent Mobility Services, says the pairing plays well with what the company calls the “attention economy”.

In short, the attention economy means the longer Tencent can retain a consumer’s attention, the more money it stands to make. In the future, passengers of autonomous vehicles will provide a potentially lucrative and certainly captive audience.

Zeng summarizes, “The space within a car is limited, however within this limited space you can have unlimited life.” Or in other words when it comes to monetizing MaaS, it’s the journey not the destination.

Citing Health Concerns, Dick Parsons Resigns as CBS Interim Chairman of the Board

Barely 30 days after his appointment as interim chairman of the board at CBS, Reuters is reporting that Dick Parsons has resigned from the position.

From Reuters:

Parsons, who said he had complications from a form of cancer, will be replaced by Strauss Zelnick, who founded the media-focused private equity firm Zelnick Media Capital, according to the statement.

Richard “Dick” Parsons, former Time Warner chairman and CEO, was named interim chairman weeks after Leslie Moonves stepped down as chairman and CEO of CBS amid a cascade of sexual assault allegations published in a series of articles in The New Yorker.

Parsons is a well-rounded leader noted for his sound judgment and vast experience in politics, finance, entertainment, and philanthropy. His illustrious career earned him the February 2002 cover of BLACK ENTERPRISE magazine. He also has a proven track record of driving results at large organizations during times of crisis and change.

“Among the numerous roles of this unflappable leader: Taking the helm of AOL Time Warner as the media giant was reeling from a troubled merger during the height of the dot-com boom; serving as chairman of Citigroup as the financial giant was recovering from the sector’s financial meltdown; lending his expertise to U.S. presidents over the years in tackling dire issues ranging from Social Security reform to job creation during the Great Recession; helping to resurrect the famed Apollo Theater at a time in which it was financially crippled; and assuming the role of  interim CEO  to stabilize the L.A. Clippers NBA franchise during the Donald Sterling scandal,” writes Black Enterprise Editor-in-Chief Derek T. Dingle.

According to Deadline, Parsons’ health has taken a turn for the worse in the last couple of weeks.
