The latest very bad media brand name has arrived

AOL and Yahoo will become Oath folllowing Verizon deal

AOL and Yahoo will become Oath folllowing Verizon deal

Separately, Yahoo has redesigned its homepage and updated its Yahoo Finance and Yahoo Sports hubs for Spanish-speaking audiences in the USA and Latin America.

Neither AOL nor Yahoo commented on what her severance might entail.

Armstrong confirmed the new brand in a tweet urging users to #TakeTheOath. As AOL has publicly stated already, Yahoo Finance, Yahoo Sports, and Yahoo Mail are all sticking around after the Verizon acquisition-now we know that they will be part of a media division at Verizon called Oath.

SEC Teams Mississippi State and SC to Meet For NCAA Title
No. 2 at 7.0 was Hartford, a market loyal to the University of CT , which lost to Mississippi State in Friday's semifinals. She had 18 points and 10 rebounds while fellow junior guard Kaela Davis also reached double figures with 10 points.

It's unclear if the Yahoo name will live on at all for any part of the internet business that will be run by AOL. According to Armstrong, the combined company will have 20 brands serving one billion consumers. If it's up to me, I will not be taking any "oaths", thank you very much.

Yahoo originally agreed to sell its online operations to Verizon for $4.8bn after years of unsuccessful attempts to boosts its revenue.

Winter storm warnings and winter weather advisories were issued for parts of New England, upstate NY and northeast Pennsylvania. There were also minor outages in Burlington and Burlington Electric Department said power was restored by Saturday afternoon.

Verizon bought Yahoo (excluding its interest in Alibaba) for $4.83 billion in July 2016, though the finalization of that deal has taken some time due to the revelation of massive data breaches at Yahoo.

The US Justice Department last month charged two Russian intelligence operatives and a pair of hackers over one of the largest cyber attacks in history, which had apparent twin goals of espionage and financial gain.

Verizon will also be investing in Yahoo and the Sunnyvale, Calif., campus, and that AOL core brands will also be moving there.

In China debut, Tillerson appears to hand Beijing a diplomatic victory
His trip has been dominated by concerns over North Korea's missile and nuclear weapons program. The North conducted two nuclear test explosions and 24 ballistic missile tests past year .

The Kremlin denied any official Russian involvement in cybercrimes after the United States indicted two FSB intelligence agents over cyber attacks on Yahoo that compromised 500 million accounts. That will remain in a holding company that's called Altaba, previously known as Abaco.
