In Jerusalem's Old City, conflict means buyer and seller beware

In Jerusalem's Old City, conflict means buyer and seller bewareIn an alley in Jerusalem's Old City, a three-storey building has become a symbol of Palestinian fears they are losing precious ground in the historic area. Adeeb Joudeh al-Husseini says he did nothing wrong, but even his status as a member of one of Jerusalem's most prominent Palestinian families did not shield him from the blowback. The 55-year-old was accused of being behind the sale of the Mamluk-style building in the Old City's Muslim quarter to Israeli settlers -- something most Palestinians consider treason.

Everything new coming to Netflix this week, and everything leaving (week of Jan. 20)

Everything new coming to Netflix this week, and everything leaving (week of Jan. 20)We don't get many slow weeks when it comes to Netflix releases, but this week certainly counts. With just ten shows and movies on the docket (nine of which are Netflix originals), there's a decent chance that nothing here will really stand out for you. Personally, I will be delving into the final six episodes of Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt as soon as they go live, since it's one of the two or three best sitcoms on the service. If you're a fan of serial killers (well, not a fan, but you know what I mean), Conversations with a Killer: The Ted Bundy Tapes should be on your radar as well. And all I now about Polar is that it features Mad Mikkelsen with an eye patch, so I'll probably check it out. And hey, at least nothing is leaving the streaming service this week! Here is the complete list of the Netflix arrivals and departures for the week of January 20th, 2019: ## Arrivals ### Monday, January 21st * Justice-- NETFLIX ORIGINAL ### Thursday, January 24th * Conversations with a Killer: The Ted Bundy Tapes-- NETFLIX ORIGINAL * Hotel Transylvania 3: Summer Vacation ### Friday, January 25th * Animas-- NETFLIX FILM * Black Earth Rising-- NETFLIX ORIGINAL * Club de Cuervos: Season 4-- NETFLIX ORIGINAL * Kingdom-- NETFLIX ORIGINAL * Medici: The Magnificent-- NETFLIX ORIGINAL * Polar-- NETFLIX FILM * Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt: Season 4 Part 2-- NETFLIX ORIGINAL * * * ## Departures ### None * Nothing is leaving Netflix! We'll be back next week with another full slate of shows, movies, and specials coming and going from the streaming service. In the meantime, check out the complete lists of arriving content and departing content.

Intel insists leadership team 'united' even as executive departures rack up

Intel insists leadership team 'united' even as executive departures rack upIntel has insisted its leadership team is more united than ever in the wake of chief executive Brian Krzanich's resignation last year, even as it continues its hunt for a replacement. Gregory Bryant, senior vice president and general manager of Intel's Client Computing Group, said: “Obviously you don't lose a CEO and you don't notice anything has changed, that would be silly.  “But I would say the leadership team at Intel, we've really pulled together as a whole group to execute the strategy. We fundamentally believe the strategy we have is working, and the board is going through its process [to find a new CEO]. They need to take the time to do a great job, it's an important job and we've said take the time you need.  “I feel like sometimes when the leader steps away and you're going through change, actually the team pulls closer together because you're supporting each other through the transition.” Rumours have been circling over the past week that Intel could be readying to name Apple's Johny Srouji as its new boss, ahead of its earnings call later this month. However, no decisions are thought to have yet been made, almost seven months after Mr Krzanich left the company following a “consensual relationship” with an employee.  At the time, Intel had said it had launched an investigation into a violation of its non-fraternisation policy, which it said applied to all managers, after having been informed of the past relationship. Reports had suggested that relationship had started before Mr Krzanich became CEO and had ended a number of years ago. Technology intelligence - newsletter promo - EOA However, Mr Krzanich has not been the only key executive to step down from the company. Earlier this month strategy chief Aicha Evans announced her resignation to join driverless car start-up Zoox. Since 2017, it has also lost its chief financial officer, chief operating officer and senior vice president of its manufacturing unit. The departures come as Intel transitions its business from being PC-centric to a data-led company. At the Consumer Electronics Show earlier this month, Intel unveiled its next generation core processors, as well as previewing a new client platform, codenamed Lakefield. Mr Bryant said: “I would say we have really reoriented the company where, for years, we were a PC-centric company. “That's not to say PC doesn't matter anymore, its just to say we were exclusively a PC-centric company. Now we've reoriented ourselves in a data-centric era.”
