'High Castle' Producer Accuses Amazon Studio Chief of Harassment

The decision came hours after The Hollywood Reporter published a producer's detailed claims of harassment by Price. An outside investigator, Christine Farrell of Public Interest Investigations Inc., was brought in and spoke to Hackett and executives at Amazon.

On Thursday, reports resurfaced of an alleged harassment incident involving Price and Isa Hackett, an executive producer on Amazon original series "The Man in the High Castle" and the daughter of science-fiction author Philip K. Dick.

Amazon did not respond to multiple requests for comment regarding McGowan's claims.

HSBC names John Flint as next CEO
London-based HSBC on Thursday named John Flint , now head of its retail bank, as its new Chief executive, effective February 21. After some strong profitable years under Gulliver, HSBC earnings plunged in 2016 on huge writedowns and restructuring charges.

Amazon released a mealy-mouthed statement that read in part, "W$3 e looked closely at this specific concern and addressed it directly with those involved". He was sacked from his company, Weinstein Co., last weekend.

Ultimately Hackett says she felt compelled to come forward with her story in the wake of the Weinstein scandal because, "I feel inspired by the other women who have been far braver than I am, who have come forward".

Amazon will spend about $4 billion this year on video programming, including its own TV shows and movies, according to estimates by Wedbush Securities.

The American trio of Kevin Na, Gary Woodland, and Pat Perez were also in contention in the Asian Tour event after carding 66s. The last player to win his first start in a tour event was Jim Benepe at the 1988 Western Open.

Most damning for Amazon is the fact that Hatckett reported the incidents to Amazon.

Price joined Amazon in 2004, overseeing the launch of its digital video store and eventually its streaming service.

Amazon's comedy series "Transparent" won a Golden Globe Award for best comedy or musical and a best actor Emmy for Jeffrey Tambor.

Fortnite developer reportedly suing cheating players
The cheating players implicated in the case will face charges up to $150,000 in "statutory damages", according to TorrentFreak . The company has reported banning thousands of cheating players and doesn't intend to stop at that.

But other ambitious projects have fizzled, with "Z: The Beginning of Everything" and "The Last Tycoon" each canceled after a single season. In a cab ride to a party with another Amazon employee, Hackett says Price told her she would "love his dick". In tweets addressed to Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos, McGowan said that after selling a project to Amazon, she voiced her concerns about Weinstein to Price, who allegedly ignored her.
