Giving a fresh impetus to his vision of achieving Intelligent Cloud and Edge, Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella has realigned duties of his core senior team, announcing that Terry Myerson, Head of Windows and Devices Group (WDG), was leaving the company. Myerson and the WDG team transformed Windows to create a secure, always up-to-date, modern operating system (OS).


The Windows will be made safer for its users.


“His strong contributions to Microsoft over 21 years from leading Exchange to leading Windows 10 leave a real legacy. I want to thank Terry for his leadership on my team and across Microsoft. He will work with me on the transition over the coming months,” Nadella said in an internal email to employees on Thursday.

Rajesh Jha, Executive Vice President, Office Product Group at Microsoft, will lead Experiences and Devices that will include Windows, Office, third-party applications and devices into a more cohesive Microsoft 365 experience.

“Jha will expand his existing responsibilities to lead a new team focused on Experiences & Devices. The purpose of this team is to instill a unifying product ethos across our end-user experiences and devices,” Nadella said.

Nadella announced the formation of two new engineering teams to accelerate innovation at Microsoft. For Microsoft Devices, Panos Panay will serve as Chief Product Officer to ensure end-to-end devices business execution excellence.


Satya Nadella has reorganised the team.

“Joe Belfiore will continue leading our Windows experiences and will drive Windows innovation in partnership with the PC and device ecosystem,” Nadella wrote.

Brad Anderson will continue to lead Windows Enterprise deployment and management efforts with even tighter alignment across Microsoft 365 and will partner closely with the EMS teams within Cloud + Artificial Intelligence (AI) Platform.

Scott Guthrie will lead the Cloud + AI Platform. Jason Zander has been promoted to Executive Vice President of Azure Cloud. The Windows platform team led by Harv Bhela, Henry Sanders and Michael Fortin will join Zander’s team.

“For Business AI, the customer service, marketing and sales Insights teams, previously led by Gurdeep Singh Pall, will join James Phillips’ Business Applications Group,” the Microsoft CEO said.

“I am thankful for Gurdeep’s leadership in building these new AI solutions that are going to help differentiate Microsoft in this area,” he added. When it comes to AI perception and Mixed Reality (MR), Alex Kipman will lead the new team. “This team will continue to build first-party products and the core building block cloud services for third parties on Azure,” Nadella added.

"The discovery of each new world provides a unique glimpse into the physics that play a role in planet formation," said lead author Jon Zink, a UCLA postdoctoral scholar.

An international team of astronomers has identified 366 new exoplanets, using data from the NASA Kepler Space Telescope's K2 mission. The findings, described in a paper published in the Astronomical Journal, showed a planetary system that comprises a star and at least two gas giant planets, each roughly the size of Saturn and located unusually close to one another.

The discovery is significant because it's rare to find gas giants -- like Saturn in the solar system -- as close to their host star as they were in this case. The researchers cannot yet explain why it occurred there, but it makes the finding especially useful because it could help scientists form a more accurate understanding of the parameters for how planets and planetary systems develop.

The winter comes with its own set of hassles. New moms have to be careful because they have to take care of themselves and their babies. It becomes imperative to protect babies from the harsh season. The immune system of newborn babies is developing, which makes them susceptible to respiratory infections. But, you can take preventive measures to keep your child warm and safe. Newborn babies need extra care until their immune system becomes stronger to protect their bodies from the harmful effects of viruses and bacteria that usually become more active in the winter season. A drop in the temperature can aggravate different processes in the body, therefore, moms need to take extra care of newborn babies during winters.
