Layoff Roundup Summit Cuts 21 Crain Cuts 50 TechTarget Cuts 76

first_imgThe layoffs that have ravaged the publishing industry continue to roll, with three prominent b-to-b publishers cutting staff in an effort to reduce costs and survive the recession.Summit Business Media—a company that had been, until recently, on a buying spree—laid off 21 staffers last week and eliminated six vacant positions, FOLIO: has learned. As part of the cutbacks, a pair of senior executives—Joe Bennett, former Pfingsten president, and Jim Keefe, former senior vice president of the company’s events division—are leaving.Tom Flynn, the company’s chief financial officer, will take on the additional role of chief operating officer. Before the cuts, Summit employed 495. CEO Andy Goodenough told FOLIO: he has “flattened the organization and now have eight ‘revenue units’ reporting to me directly, up from four.” Crain Cuts 50 Meanwhile, Crain Communications, publisher of trade magazines including Advertising Age, Crain’s New York Business and TV Week, laid off 50 editorial staffers, according to a Paid Content report, and shuttered the print version of Financial Week.A rep for Crain did not return a request seeking comment. The company employs about 1,000 staffers.Tech Target Cuts 12 PercentPerhaps most eye-opening, however, was the news that Needham, Massachusetts-based publisher TechTarget—a company that has seen significant growth over the last few years—will slash 76 full-time staffers, or about 12 percent of its overall workforce.According to a filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission Thursday (reported today by BtoB) the company also said it will close its two print magazines—Storage and Information Security.last_img read more

Bugatti La Voiture Noire is a 125M oneoff inspired by the Atlantic

first_img 2020 Porsche 911 Carrera S Cabriolet first drive: The uber-roadster 62 Photos Bugatti spent the lead-up to the Geneva Motor Show talking about its Type 57 SC Atlantic, a car that’s been captivating people for the better part of 80 years. Bugatti is not reviving the Atlantic, but it did lean on that design to create a wild one-off. Bugatti revealed La Voiture Noire (which literally translates to the black car) on Tuesday, a one-of-one creation that is meant to incorporate the idea of grand touring into a car with immense amounts of power and equal amounts of luxury. It also costs an immense amount of money, with the final price tag from Bugatti coming in at a cool 11 million euros ($12.5 million) — before tax. That’s how you make an appearance at the 2019 Geneva Motor Show.It’s not exactly hard to tell who built La Voiture Noire. The car is still quintessentially Bugatti, with a front end that’s closer to the aerodynamic Divo than the O.G. Chiron on which it’s based. However, the nose eschews the hardcore aero of the Divo in favor of some different vent arrangements, more pronounced front lights and dimples (or something) on the hood. Some folks were expecting some sort of wild Atlantic recreation, but it’s clear that Bugatti stayed rooted in modern design for La Voiture Noire.Enlarge ImageTake a good look now, because unless you happen to be the owner, you’ll probably never see this thing in the wild. Andrew Hoyle/Roadshow The dorsal fin, which is a staple of the original Atlantic’s design, lives on here. It starts just above the grille and makes its way to the roof through a centrally-located windshield wiper, continuing down the car’s long body and terminating just ahead of the Bugatti badge. The rear end marks a serious departure from both the Divo and Chiron, with a single lighting element going from side to side. Everything beneath that light is a continuation of the front end’s grille design. There are six tailpipes and, in true 2019 fashion, the Bugatti script out back illuminates.Even though it has more tailpipes than the regular Chiron, the powertrain appears to be the same. Bugatti says that La Voiture Noire sports an 8.0-liter 16-cylinder engine that’s good for a shade under 1,500 horsepower and about 1,180 pound-feet of torque, the same as the Chiron. The car is already sold and is rumored to be going to Ferdinand Piech, Ferdinand Porsche’s grandson and the chairman of VW Group from 1993 to 2002. Bugatti wouldn’t say who the lucky person is, naturally, saying only that the person in question is a “Bugatti enthusiast.” No duh. Will it carry the same cachet in 80 years’ time that the Atlantic does today, though? That’s perhaps the most interesting question of all.Originally published March 5 at 12:10 a.m. PT.Update, at 2:41 a.m. PT: Corrected the pre-tax price, which fell prey to a rounding error.
