She said, I don't care if the studio wants to drug test me every day.' And so they did! The studio began daily drug tests for Jolie, and it wasn't just peeing in a cup. PHOTOS: Angelina Is A ‘Spoiled BratWho Lives InCrazytown!’ Sony Execs Slam Jolie In Newly Leaked EmailsTheir Top 13 Disses Exposed Then-Para­mount president John Goldwyn said, We were sufficiently worried that we obliged her to undergo random drug tests — and not just urine tests but also blood tests. Jolie passed the drug tests, but she was saddled with a team to keep in in line. We would put a team around her for two purposes, a production crew member admitted. One really was practical: to get her into great shape for the movie, not only in terms of appearance but to do what she had to do onscreen, the source said.

Over the last few years, diversity has inched perilously toward buzzword status. Tech companies have taken to talking loudly and frequently about it since 2014 in particular, when Google became the first to make its diversity stats public . In the Trump era, championing diversity has arguably become more commodified than ever, as brands infuse their marketing and messaging with their politicsemphasizing their support for women, immigrants, and minorities. So I wasnt surprised that in conversations with several CEOs and execs, many were quick to cite diversity as something their companies care deeply about. But that doesnt necessarily translate into actionor cold, hard numbers. As the federal government has begun to target individuals on the basis of religion, national origin , and gender identity , businesses are increasingly under pressure to take tangible steps to boost representation in their workplaces and protect their employees from discrimination.

Enlarge (credit: Kym Farnik ) Despite the executive order signed by President Trump this afternoon to roll back the Clean Power Plan, it’s unclear that much will change in the US for the declining coal industry. An annual survey conducted by UtilityDrive and research firm PA Consulting asked 600 utility executives from around the country to answer a series of questions about how their utility is run and how it’s preparing for the future. Notably, only four percent of the respondents said that they expected to increase coal power in their energy mix moderately or significantly. Most responded that coal power would remain the same or decrease over the next 10 years. Fifty-two percent of the respondents expected coal power to “decrease significantly” in their energy mix. The story is similar for oil, which would also benefit from a Clean Power Plan rollback.

If we can be an entry point to the group’s models with our smaller models, then I’m happy with that,” he said.

None of this is exactly official at the moment but Google has confirmed to Engadget that such an app is in the works. Right now it's being labelled as "an experiment" and may not ever see the light of day if Google execs don't see any potential in it. What it does show is that Google isn't giving up on grabbing some social networking action just yet, no matter how many apps it has to release: if users are spending their time inside photo apps rather than searching the web, then Google has to respond.

"What's happened since then is the principles of digital marketing, the need for real-time action, for data, for great content, for personalization for mobile apps in the store and in the car has gone way beyond the marketing department." Back then, the need to create content and get it to the right people in a timely fashion via the right channel was something that maybe 30% of a company's execs had to worry about. Now that percentage is more like 90%, said Rencher. That means the sort of software Adobe offers, like its Analytics Cloud for gauging interest in web content, could be used across many departments. Analytics Cloud is based on Adobe's $1.8 billion acquisition of Omniture in 2009. By integrating all of Adobe's Marketing tools and solutions in the Marketing, Analytics, and Advertising Clouds, with Creative and Document Clouds, Adobe's Experience Cloud aims to help enterprises be much better " experience businesses ".
