علی واعظ، تحلیلگر ارشد ایران در گروه بین‌المللی بحران در گفت‌و‌گو با یورونیوز می‌گوید: «دستیابی به یک تفاهم می‌تواند موفقیت بزرگی از منظر دیپلماسی باشد و حل کردن تمام این مسایلی که برخی طی ۱۸ ماه و برخی نیز طی ۱۲ سال گذشته موضوع مذاکره بوده‌اند می‌تواند گامی بسیار مهم و رو به جلو محسوب شود اما این موفقیت نهایی نیست. تفاهم هنوز بسیار شکننده است و طرفین طی ماه‌های آینده تحت فشار خواهند بود و نوشتن متن مورد توافق و پیوست‌های آن نیز، هم از نظر فنی و هم از نظر سیاسی بسیار دشوار خواهد بود.»

سرگرمی :: قدیمی ترین عکس های مقبره کوروش
آرامگاه کوروش بزرگ که مقبره کوروش دوم هخامنشی ملقب به کوروش بزرگ یا کوروش کبیر است، بنایی بی‌پیرایه ولی با معماری منحصر به فرد، در فاصله حدود یک کیلومتری جنوب غربی کاخ‌های پاسارگاد است. این بنا از همه سوی دشت مرغاب پیداست، به‌ویژه اگر از سمت جنوب غربی از راه باستانی گذر کنیم و از تنگه بلاغی وارد دشت شویم، نخستین چیزی که جلب توجه می‌کند آرامگاه کوروش است. این اثر در سال ۲۰۰۴ میلادی به عنوان زیر مجموعه پاسارگاد تحت شماره ۱۱۰۶ در میراث جهانی یونسکو ثبت شده‌است.

:: صدا و سیما کماکان«در حاشیه»:مهران مدیری مصداق بارز هنرمندی غیرمتعهد و عمله ی ظلم
[...]اما گویا مشکل فزاینده ی کمبود مخاطب صدا و سیما و اعتراف گاه و بیگاه مسئولین فرهنگی حکومت در روی آوردن روزافزون اقشار جامعه به شبکه های ماهواره ای سبب شد که صدا و سیما امسال در نوروز 94دوباره دست به دامان«دلقک»های سابق خود شده کم و بیش همه را در یک مجموعه زیر نام«در حاشیه»گرد هم آورد.با تماشای چهار قسمت نخستین این مجموعه به نظر نمی رسد دست اندرکاران آن به جز ادا اطوارهای خنک،نخ نما و به شدت تکراری چند کار گذشته چیز بیشتری برای ارائه داشته باشند.بینندگانی که چند مجموعه ی پیشین مانند«شب های برره»«پاورچین»یا«نقطه چین»را تعقیب کرده و به خاطر دارند می توانند تکرار خسته کننده ی سوژه هایی را ببیند که گاه حاکی از عمق بی خبری،سطحی نگری و ذهنیت ارتجاعی و در عین حال برج عاجی نویسندگان و کارگردان آن است.سوژه هایی از این دست:"مردی که با همسرش اختلاف پیدا کرده و همسرش نیز او را از خانه بیرون کرده"،"غذای بدمزه ای که همسر درست کرده و مرد مجبور است وانمود کند که لذیذ است"،"مردی که مجبور است دنبال کار بگردد و نمی تواند"،"دختری که در حال ترشیدن است و کسی به سراغش نمی رود"البته همه ی این مشکلات باز مانع آن نمی شود که اغلب مجموعه ها در خانه های چند میلیاردی شمال شهر فیلم برداری شوند،مانع آن نمی شود که پس از حل بسیار غیرمعقول و غیرواقعی این مشکلات در چند قسمت اول دیگر خبری از فشارهای شدید روحی_روانی و محدودیت های شدید فرهنگی و اجتماعی که از طرف حاکمان ایدئولوژی زده و توهم زده بر سر مردم آوار می شود نباشد.[...]در اینجا نگارنده نه صلاحیت اظهارنظر درباب ارزش های هنری کار آقای مدیری و دست اندرکاران ایشان را در خود می بیند و نه حتی هرگونه بحثی پیرامون این سریال بی اهمیت وجهه همت این یادداشت کوتاه است، بلکه هدف نه پاسخ بلکه بحثی پیرامون همان پرسش نخستین یعنی«تعهد هنرمند»است و"در حاشیه"زمینه ای را برای چنین بحثی فراهم می کند.در این مورد خاص متاسفانه باید گفت با توجه به پیشینه ی نه چندان درخشان آقای مدیری در به تمسخر گرفتن متحصنین مجلس ششم در اعتراض به«کودتای انتخاباتی»شورای نگهبان و رد صلاحیت های گسترده ی نمایندگان گرفته تا تمسخر شبکه های ماهواره ای برون مرزی آن هم در اوج خفقان پس از سرکوب معترضان سال 88و عدم همراهی او با هیچ یک از جنبش ها و حرکت های جامعه ی مدنی _بر خلاف بسیاری هنرمندان طراز اول کشور_آری چنین سو پیشینه ای ایشان را هنرمندی متعهد و مردمی در ردیف شجریان ها و پناهی ها قرار نمی دهد؛گو اینکه میلیون ها مخاطب عام از جمله خود نگارنده کم یا زیاد در برخی صحنه های فیلم لبخندی بر لبانمان نشسته باشد،گو اینکه ایشان حقیقتا دارای استعداد طنزپردازی و خنداندن مردم باشند؛اما به قطع و یقین هنرمندانی در زمینه های گوناگون موسیقی،ادبیات یا سینما ده ها برابر بزرگ تر از ایشان از لحاظ هنری و چه بسا ده ها برابر ضعیف تر از یک عمله و عکره ی دستگاه گوبلزی پخش اعتراف اجباری،از لحاظ مالی بودند که به خاطر همان تعهدی که نسبت به مردم و مطالبات به حق آنان قائل بودند موقعیت های زیادی را از کف دادند...

:: خداحافظی پس از دیدار با یاران زلاتان
تیم ملی فوتبال ایران درحالی دومین دیدار تدارکاتی‌اش در اردوی اتریش را برابر همبازیان زلاتان ابراهیموویچ برگزار می‌کند که شاید این آخرین مسابقه‌ای باشد که کارلوس کی‌روش روی نیمکت ایران می‌نشیند. به گزارش خبرگزاری مهر، سال 94 برای فوتبال ملی ایران به خوبی آغاز شد. برتری تیم ملی مقابل شیلی یک اتفاق جذاب و ارزشمند بود. سپس قهرمانی تیم نوجوانان در تورنمنت 10 جانبه ژاپن، صعود تیم ملی فوتبال ساحلی به جام جهانی پرتغال و در نهایت نتایج خوب تیم امید، همه اینها موید این ادعاست. حالا و در روزهای خوب فوتبال ایران تیم ملی کشورمان دومین بازی بزرگ خود در اردوی آماده سازی اتریش را برگزار می کند آن هم مقابل سوئد که سابقه کسب عنوان سومی جهان و اروپا را داشته است و به خاطر ستاره هایش در سال های اخیر در میان علاقمندان به فوتبال قابل اعتنا است. این بازی درحالی در مرکز سوئد برگزار می شود که تیم ملی ایران سراپا انگیزه است و با موفقیت مقابل زردپوشان این کشور اروپایی تعطیلات نوروزی را با خاطره ای خوش به پایان رسانده و خود را به بهترین شکل آماده حضور در مسابقات جام جهانی کند.

Here’s why more Wall Streeters are heading to Silicon Valley

Here’s why more Wall Streeters are heading to Silicon ValleyGetty Images/Chip Somodevilla Ruth Porat. Last week, Morgan Stanley’s chief financial officer of four years, Ruth Porat, announced she plans to join Google as its new CFO. She’s not the only one leaving Wall Street and heading to Silicon Valley. Goldman Sachs has lost several top people to West Coast tech companies over the past few years, including Anthony Noto and Sarah Friar. Noto took over as Twitter’s CFO, and Friar left for Salesforce and is now the CFO at Square.  It’s not just veterans who are making a change; more elite college graduates and MBAs are foregoing pinstripes and moving West. Only 10% of MIT undergraduates went into finance last year, according to a recent New York Times article — a startlingly drop from the 31% who took Wall Street jobs in 2006. “Software companies, meanwhile, hired 28% of graduates in 2014, compared with 10% in 2006,” it reports. Similarly, in 2014 San Francisco and the Bay Area drew slightly more Harvard Business School graduates than New York. Why are so many people headed to the Valley? “Young grads, as a general rule, are going to follow opportunity,” says Scott Rostan, who began his professional career with Merrill Lynch and now teaches investment banking and financial modeling courses at UNC Kenan-Flagler Business School. “If the opportunity for jobs are on Wall Street, they’re going to go that way. If they’re perceived to be in Silicon Valley technology companies, they’re going to go that way.” And while Wall Street may be known for its fat bonuses, tech companies are paying huge sums to attract top people. The Brookings Institution recently released a report showing the top 5% of earners in San Francisco far exceed the top incomes in other major US cities, making at least $423,000 a year. Beyond just economic opportunity, Wall Street may be leaking talent in the aftermath of the 2008 recession, Rostan says. “There still is a perception problem from the financial crisis that Wall Street is a more challenging environment. They still have that dark cloud, whereas a hot technology startup sounds awesome and exciting.“  Justin Sullivan/Getty Many Wall Streeters are trading in suits for hoodies. And for the older set who cut their teeth on Wall Street, Silicon Valley may offer the promise of a healthier lifestyle. Over the past 20 years, Rostan has observed that the Wall Street vets who switch careers are usually making “a lifestyle choice.”  “Wall Street right now is under a lot of regulatory scrutiny,” he says, “and there are a lot of pressures on them that are outside of their individual day-to-day control. Going to a high-profile technology company can be more liberating and freeing because you can then be creative instead of reactionary.”  Wall Street banks are notorious for their 100-hour weeks and grueling work experiences. While many Silicon Valley startups and established tech companies also require long hours, they maintain a reputation for innovation, creative freedom, and meaningful work.  In Google’s announcement that Porat would be joining the company, she said: “Growing up in Silicon Valley, during my time at Morgan Stanley, and as a member of Stanford’s Board, I’ve had the opportunity to experience firsthand how tech companies can help people in their daily lives. I can’t wait to roll up my sleeves and get started.” NOW WATCH: 14 things you didn’t know your iPhone headphones could do Please enable Javascript to watch this video Read more stories on Business Insider, Malaysian edition of the world’s fastest-growing business and technology news website.

Europe stock indexes on track for best first quarter in years
European shares fell on Tuesday, taking a breather from their sharp rally of the past three months triggered by the drop in the euro, with Germany's DAX index set to record its biggest first quarter gain since its creation in 1988. As the quarter draws to an end, the DAX is up 22 percent, while the FTSEurofirst 300 index of top European shares is up 16 percent, strongly outpacing Wall Street where the S&P 500 is up 0.8 percent since the start of the year. A survey of around 50 fund managers and strategists conducted in the past week predicted the pan-European STOXX Europe 600 index would rise more than 6 percent from current levels to 425 points by the end of 2015. "The question is whether being a late starter has left the ECB and Europe too far behind and too close to deflation.

Chuck Schumer: 15 Things You Didn’t KnowWhen Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid surprised Washington last week with the announcement he would retire from the Senate in early 2017 and not seek reelection, one of the first people he told was New York Sen. Chuck Schumer. Reid almost immediately endorsed Schumer, 64, to replace him as key Senate Democratic leader. Sen. Dick Durbin of Illinois, the number-two Senate Democrat, said he wouldn’t stand in the way, and now Sen. Patty Murray, also mentioned as a potential Reid replacement, said she’ll support Schumer for the role. “Sen. Chuck Schumer has spent his entire career carrying water for Wall Street interests,” Becky Bond, political director for the liberal group CREDO Action, told The Los Angeles Times.

Philips said the deal values the components business, which comprises an automotive lighting unit and the "Lumileds" LED manufacturing business, at $3.3 billion including debt.

China stock rally boost volumes, helps Hong Kong-Shanghai equity link
Trading volumes on a landmark share trading link between mainland China and Hong Kong have surged to a record as Beijing takes further steps to boost cross-border trading flows. Hong Kong's stock market has lagged its mainland peers with a smaller 5.7 percent gain in the same period as concerns about slowing retail sales and the local property market weigh on sentiment. "These steps are significant as they will encourage more onshore mutual funds to step into the Hong Kong markets where better opportunities exist, at least from a valuation perspective in the short term," said a market structure strategist at a European brokerage in Hong Kong. A value over 100 indicates that shares in dual-listed companies are cheaper in Hong Kong than in Shanghai.

U.S. coding site GitHub disrupted by cyberattack
U.S. coding site GitHub said it was deflecting most of the traffic from a days-long cyberattack that had caused intermittent outages for the social coding site, with the Wall Street Journal citing China as the source of the attack. "Eighty-seven hours in, our mitigation is deflecting most attack traffic," the GitHub Status account said in a tweet on Sunday. The attackers paralysed the site at times by using distributed denial of service, or DDoS, attacks, a technique commonly used to disrupt websites and computer networks, according to the Wall Street Journal.
