The editor of TIME magazine defends the magazines new cover which some say is a bit too controversial.

To me, the whole point of a magazine cover is to get your attention,” Stengel said Thursday morning. “From the moment that we started talking about this story as a cover possibility, it was like I couldn’t get out of the meetings. There was so much opinion and passion about it and discussion. What that told me is, boy, this is a story that people care a lot about.”

TIME 100: The 100 Most Influential People in the World

Share




Today, TIME has decided to release it’s ninth annual TIME 100, which list the 100 most influential people in the world.

Managing Editor Rick Stengel writes, “The TIME 100 list is about the infinite possibilities of influence and the power of influence to change the world…. Now [one] can tweet a phrase that reaches millions in a flash. Influence was never easier—or more ephemeral. Which is why we try to choose those people whose influence is both lasting and, with a few notable exceptions, laudable.”

The TIME 100 features often-surprising pairings of the influentials and the guest contributors TIME selects to write about them. The ninth-annual list includes: President Barack Obama on Warren Buffett, Bill Bain on Governor Mitt Romney, Howard Stern on Matt Lauer, Garry Trudeau on Stephen Colbert, Valerie Plame Wilson on Claire Danes, Johnny Depp on Harvey Weinstein, Al Gore on Tim Cook, Stella McCartney on Rihanna, Cicely Tyson on Viola Davis, Alyssa Milano on Pete Cashmore, Robert Gates on Hillary Clinton, Jeb Bush on Marco Rubio, Judd Apatow on Kristen Wiig, Pink on Adele, Jeremy Lin on Tim Tebow, Ralph Nader on Ron Paul, and many more. The list is divided into five categories: Moguls, Breakouts, Icons, Pioneers and Leaders.

The TIME 100 includes 54 international figures from 37 countries, more than any previous TIME 100 and the first time that there are more international names on the list than American. Some of the notable international names include: Benjamin Netanyahu, Lionel Messi, Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge and Pippa Middleton, Maria das Graças Silva Foster, Dilma Rousseff, Wang Yang, Xi Jinping, Ayatullah Ali Khamenei, Angela Merkel, Christine Lagarde, Sharmeen Obaid-Chinoy, René Redzepi and many more.

The winner of the TIME.com TIME 100 poll was Anonymous, the network of Internet activists, which received more than 395,000 “Yes” votes. As winner of the poll, they are included on the official TIME 100.

“Ora” Watch Concept

watch-1

The time is delivered via three separate, but seemingly cohesive, tapes; one displaying the hour, one displaying the minute and one displaying the day. The shape of the watch is a direct result of an “inside-out” designing approach where the moving parts dictated the overall form of the timepiece’s outer shell.
