Portfolio bloat: whats happening to thousands of startups going nowhere fast

Earlier this week, much was made of the e-commerce business Brandless deciding to shutter its doors. Industry observers found its fate particularly interesting, given that Brandless was only a few years old and had raised substantial funding, including $100 million from the SoftBank Vision Fund alone. Still, Brandless is far from alone in having tried — and failed —  to break away from its many rivals and become the kind of juggernaut that make venture investors money. There are thousands of companies that have raised funding over the last decade that once looked like bigger opportunities or whose growth has…

Washington (CNN)President Donald Trump’s senior adviser Jared Kushner told CNN’s Fareed Zakaria that impeachment has not hurt the President’s support, insisting that his base “is strong and getting stronger” and that former White House officials who have raised concerns about Trump “didn’t have what it took.” Fareed’s Take: Why America is so polarized ‘They harassed me’ “They investigated us for two years on Russia, which we said from the beginning we didn’t collude with Russia. They went through that for two years, they harassed the President, they harassed me, they harassed the White House, that turned out to be nothing,”…

That is clear from the language of the Constitution,” he said, arguing that presidents routinely intertwine their personal interests with policy and that quid…

Washington (CNN)A Democratic document dump on the eve of an expected House vote to finally send articles of impeachment to the Senate is supercharging the party’s demands for witnesses at President Donald Trump’s soon-to-begin trial. The chairs of the House Intelligence, Oversight, Judiciary and Foreign Affairs committees said the new evidence confirmed that Trump and associates had “pressured Ukrainian officials to announce investigations that would benefit the President politically.” “There cannot be a full and fair trial in the Senate without the documents that President Trump is refusing to provide to Congress,” the chairmen said in a statement. Ever since…

The Doomsday Clock Moves Closer Than Ever to Midnight

The Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists As far as the Bulletin and the Doomsday Clock are concerned, the world has entered into the realm of the two-minute warning, a period when danger is high and the margin for error low. The moment demands attention and new, creative responses. If decision makers continue to fail to act—pretending that being inside two minutes is no more urgent than the preceding period—citizens around the world should rightfully echo the words of climate activist Greta Thunberg and ask: "How dare you?" Before 2017, the clock had not been at that mark since 1953—the year…

Two Canadians got caught in a spat between the US and China. They’ve been in prison for a year

Hong Kong (CNN)In October 2018, Michael Kovrig, a former Canadian diplomat, warned that US-China ties “have deteriorated to their worst point” since the 1989 Tiananmen Square massacre. Meng is accused of violating US sanctions against Iran. China’s detention of the two Canadians, who have been accused of sharing “state secrets and intelligence” with “foreign entities,” has been viewed by many as retaliation. Meng’s detention — which came amid an escalating trade war between Beijing and Washington — sent Chinese-Canadian relations plummeting to a point they have struggled to recover from. With the Huawei CFO looking no closer to release, many…
