Marissa Mayer Search Calls

Marissa Mayer, one of the top professionals at Look for engines, will be the next primary of Look for engines, making her one of the most well-known females in Rubber Area and business The united states.

The consultation of Ms. Mayer is consider a hen house for Look for engines, which has fought nowadays to entice top ability in its fight with opponents. One of the few community looks of Look for engines, Ms. Mayer, 37, has been accountable for the overall look and feeling of some of the search business's most well-known items.

Despite her qualifications, Ms. Mayer — who will be Yahoo’s fifth us president in less than a season, two of them temporary — will experience a complicated task.

A revolutionary Organization online that assisted shape the market in the 90's, Search engines is trying to stay appropriate after unable to evolve to modifying enhancements like innovative search technological innovation and social networking resources. As Search engines and Facebook or myspace have appeared as Web leaders, Search engines has fought to create a unique technique, even though its viewers continues to be among the biggest on the Online. Now, the organization is moving to lay off a large number of workers, in the face of slouching earnings and a bad stock.

The big question is whether Ms. Mayer — or anyone — can help Search engines restore its former built.

“It’s a very exciting leaving and a very exciting choice,” said Martin Sorrell, us chief executive of WPP, the massive advertising organization. “She comes with a powerful popularity, but we’ll see how she examines it all.”

With her consultation as the chief executive and us chief executive of Search engines on Thursday, Ms. Mayer connects a candidate of women in the technological innovation market to hold the top spot. The top level team contains Meg Whitman, the us chief executive of Hewlett-Packard, and Va M. Rometty, the head of I.B.M. Another mature lady in Rubber Area, Sheryl Sandberg, is Facebook’s primary managing official.

(In a bit of personal news, Ms. Mayer disclosed on Twitter late Monday that she is pregnant.)

The move to Yahoo is an opportunity for Ms. Mayer to step out on her own and claim a bigger stage. Ms. Mayer, an engineer by training whose first job at Google included computer programming, was behind the famously unadorned white search home page and the way users interacted with Gmail, Google News and Google Images. She also sat on Google’s operating committee, part of a small circle of senior executives who had the ear of Google’s co-founders, Larry Page and Sergey Brin.

Perhaps in a sign of grander ambitions, Ms. Mayer joined the board of Wal-Mart Stores in April, her first seat at a public company. She is one of four women on Wal-Mart’s 16-member board.

Still, Ms. Mayer did not have a clear path to the upper echelons of Google.

After years of heading up its search business, Google’s most profitable unit, Ms. Mayer became vice president of the company’s location and local services in late 2010, a group that included Google Maps and more than 1,000 product managers. But the following year, Google promoted another executive, Jeff Huber, to be the senior vice president for local and commerce, putting him one level above Ms. Mayer’s post. Although Google characterized her move as a promotion at the time, some wondered if she would be content with the reorganization.

Ms. Mayer, who was first approached about the job in the middle of June after returning from a trip to China, resigned from Google on Monday afternoon by telephone. She starts at Yahoo on Tuesday and will also join the board.

In an interview, Ms. Mayer said she “had an amazing time at Google,” where she has worked for the last 13 years, but that ultimately “it was a reasonably easy decision” to take the top job at Yahoo. She said Yahoo was “one of the best brands on the Internet.” She recalled that when she started at Google, the company would conduct user surveys and “people didn’t understand the difference between Yahoo and the Internet.”

Bay Area News

Dark, desolate, and humidity. Just started in the fall and the rainy season has already barge in the bay area this week, peaking with the unusually strong storm that unloaded nearly a month of rain on Wednesday.

So we are in a wet winter? Our larger brains simply do not know weather.

Meteorologists say that we are experiencing a time of weak La Niña system, which usually winter in the Bay Area are on average a little dryer than usual, but it is far from guaranteed. And though the storms are rare in this time of year, this week's storms were caused by weather systems that no matter how often isolated rains this winter. In fact, forecasts the next day provides a clear sky with temperatures in southern Santa Clara County reach 80 degrees early next week.

Add to unusually wet La Niña winter last season, with the general difficulty in predicting long-term weather forecasts and admit they can not say with confidence what is in store for the near future.

"I have not found a good (winter) provides that I would arrive in my wallet to withdraw money to buy," says Jan Null, a meteorologist with Golden Gate Services Weathered st

The National Weather Service says there is a 33.3 percent chance that this winter will be drier than normal in the Bay Area, and provided 33.3 percent of chances of being wetter than usual. The chances of rainfall being average? That would be 33.3 percent. But forecasters can learn more when climate experts issued a long-term vision winter formal in two weeks.

Forecasters also said the government had no idea whether it will be warmer or colder than normal until the end of the year. However, cooler temperatures are expected early next year.

Deciphering the long-term climate has much to do with the temperature of the Pacific Ocean in Ecuador. Heating the water to create a system of El Niño usually brings heavy storms, while the cold waters produce a La Niña pattern, which is often less rain in the Bay Area. Water temperatures are usually normal storms on average.

This year is supposed to be a weak La Niña season. The last time it happened in 2001 was drier than normal, Null said. The time before, in 1996, was wetter than usual.

"California is probably part of the country where we have the slightest confidence in the winter forecast this year," said Jack Boston, the long-range meteorologist for, acknowledges the pain of admitting uncertainty.

Duda out on a limb after last year, when everything was ready for a regular old moderate resistance to dry La Niña years. However, due to rain in San Jose, 3.1 percent more than usual last year, finishing with 15.55 inches, with some storms that brought a landslide and flood deposits.

Boston is cautiously predicting this winter to be slightly drier than average in the South Bay, thermometers summer to continue the trend by falling a few degrees on average compared to the typical winter. Here, one can also expect a cold front to send a rush to the back of the west coast from late December to January.

Throughout the evening on Wednesday, 0.37 inches of rain fell in San Jose, and more rain expected later in the night, the entire rainfall was about half of a typical total rainfall in the South Bay in October. Only less than one inch of rainfall in the San Francisco International Airport, for a total of a typical meeting in October.
