I was downtown last Thursday and ended up with an hour to kill before my train home, so I went down the station’s back stairs and around the corner to Jay’s Bar. It was almost six o’clock, so the crowd was a mix of corporate suits buying expensive vodka, tradesmen enjoying decent beer, and jobless neighborhood guys drinking cheap beer. I ordered something inoffensive and watched to see if any of my old Cypherpunk pals would show up. But instead, my oldest nemesis showed up, whom I’ll call Jerry. I went to school with Jerry, and whatever I did, he was always desperate to do better. The crazy thing was that we were almost the same guy: We played the same positions in sports; we were both crossing guards; and we were equally skilled at almost everything we did. We should have been buddies, but instead, Jerry was my permanent opponent. I never hated him and he never really hated me, but whatever I did, he had to do better. I hadn’t run into Jerry in ten years, and the last time I saw him, he was trading coffee futures. We greeted each other; then, he sat down and ordered a better drink than mine. He asked what I was doing lately. I did not mention that I was writing – this job is strange enough without Jerry turning it into a win-lose game. Instead, I said that I was managing a few companies. “Are they big companies?” he asked. “Nah, they’re small start-ups.” He got a disgusted look on his face, and I knew immediately what it was – he was disappointed that beating me wasn’t going to be a challenge. “That’s for suckers, Paul. You’re smart enough to know that!” He was legitimately disappointed. “It isn’t just about money, Jerry.” He looked double-disgusted. And then he looked sympathetic. He was actually sorry that I had lost my edge, and wanted to help me get it back. “Look, Paul, all that ‘how to get ahead’ stuff we used to read is ancient history. That world ended in 1980. If you want to get ahead now, you have to play the new game.” I knew what he meant; the old ideal of “work hard, follow the rules, and prosper” is indeed dead. But I said nothing and waited for him to continue. “You can’t outsmart people anymore; information gets around too fast. They’ll copy what you’re doing in a week. If you want to make real money, you have to have an advantage that will last. And that means you have to get some kind of law or regulation. Then you can rake it in.” At this point I couldn’t help myself. “I don’t want to whore myself out to politicians, Jerry.” And again he got the disgusted look. “It’s not whoring, Paul, it’s business. This is how it is now. And the politicians are always looking for smart guys who know how to make money. They’ll be thrilled to write regulations for you! You just have to tell them how, and then take care of them. They’re business expenses, Paul, nothing more!” At this point I needed to change the subject, at least a little. “So, is that what you’ve been doing lately?” “Yes. I work deals between boards of directors and government officials, mostly between New York and DC. I put the deals together and get a piece of the action. I have four homes now Paul, and a fifty four foot boat. And you know what else? I’ve got a dozen ‘get out of jail free cards.’ This is the perfect game for a smart guy, Paul. You need to get busy playing it!” In his own, thoroughly amoral way, Jerry was looking out for me. “But what about the people who get screwed on this stuff, Jerry? All those regulations force people to buy things they don’t want.” “C’mon, Paul, you’re fantasizing that they’re moral, like you. They want laws and regulations. They beg for them! They need politicians to order them around, and they need someone to blame. Otherwise, things might be their own fault. “The extra money they pay is just a service fee. They want to be ordered around, and they pay the price without complaining. When was the last time you saw someone disobey a government?” “Not in a while.” “Right, because they don’t actually mind paying. We’re giving the average schmuck exactly what he wants: orders to follow and someone to blame. And we get paid a lot of money for it.” Then Jerry looked at his watch and tossed a twenty on the bar. “Look, I hafta go, but think about what I told you, Paul. You should be doing better.” And with that, Jerry walked away, probably for another ten years… though more would probably be better. But as unpleasant as the conversation was, he was right. The current situation is that way. I don’t think I’ve ever heard a better argument for an alternative economy. Paul Rosenberg www.FreemansPerspective.com

In recent years, new technologies like “fracking” have unlocked billions of barrels of oil that were once impossible to extract. U.S. oil production has doubled since 2008 to its highest level since the 1970s. Global oil production is also near an all-time high. The massive oversupply has caused oil prices to crash. Oil has plunged 70% since June 2014. Two weeks ago, investment bank Morgan Stanley (MS) said the “oil price downturn is now deeper and longer than any of the previous downturns since 1970.” According to Morgan Stanley, oil is in “uncharted territory.” • Oil stocks have crashed… Exxon Mobil (XOM), the largest U.S. oil producer, has dropped 28% over the last 19 months. Chevron (CVX), the second largest, has dropped 38%. Schlumberger (SLB), the world’s largest oil services company, has plummeted 44%. Its sales have dropped four quarters in a row. Oil services companies sell equipment, including drill rigs, to oil companies. • Yesterday, Halliburton (HAL) reported a 42% decline in its fourth-quarter sales… Halliburton is the world’s second-largest oil services company. Like Schlumberger, its sales have declined four straight quarters. The company reported a net loss of $28 million last quarter. For comparison, it made a $901 million profit during the final quarter of 2014. Halliburton’s stock fell 3.0% on the news, and is now down 57% since June 2014. • 1,100 North American oil rigs have shut down in the past 16 months… According to oil services company Baker Hughes (BHI), the number of rigs actively pumping or looking for oil has plunged 68% since October 2014. With fewer rigs in service, oil producers are buying less equipment from companies like Halliburton and Schlumberger. • Halliburton has laid off 25% of its employees since the downturn began… That’s 22,000 workers in less than two years. The company laid off 4,000 workers last quarter alone. On Monday, Halliburton’s CEO warned that this year could be worse… 2016 is shaping up to be one tough slog through the mud and the industry is going to have to take it a quarter at a time. Bloomberg Business reports the global energy industry slashed $100 billion in spending and cut 250,000 jobs last year. On Thursday, energy news website FuelFix.com reported: The worst downturn in more than four decades likely will bring Big Oil earnings down by 30 percent to 70 percent this year and cut operating cash flows 10 percent to 15 percent, Morgan Stanley said. Oil and gas spending, the investment bank projected, will fall 34 percent from 2014 to 2017. • The oil industry is highly cyclical… It goes through booms and busts. Today, the industry is in its worst bust in decades. Eventually, this cycle will end with absurdly low prices for oil services stocks. We’ll get an opportunity to buy these companies at fire-sale prices. But for now, we recommend staying away while the world works through its oversupply of oil.

The #1 Currency for the “End of America” Today, most Americans know absolutely nothing about, let alone own, this incredibly valuable asset. This has nothing to do with gold coins, silver, collectibles, or real estate of any kind, yet it could be the single most important step you take to preserve your wealth. Click here to learn more. — But American Express is not finished. In fact, I bet the company will emerge stronger than ever. For reasons I explain in The Casey Report, plastic credit cards are going extinct. But the best credit card companies will survive. They own the customer relationship. They must evolve into digital payment companies. This is the future…and it’s a trillion dollar trend. Eventually, we’ll look back to study how this trillion dollar trend changed the credit card business. I bet we’ll see that a wounded American Express got up swinging and changed its industry forever. • While E.B. isn’t betting against Amex, he is betting against credit card terminals… In a recent Casey Report issue, E.B. recommended shorting (betting against) credit card terminal maker VeriFone Systems (PAY). VeriFone makes the terminals you swipe your credit card through at the store. As payments go digital, E.B. believes that credit card terminals will go extinct. Casey Report readers are currently up 24% on the VeriFone short. Every month, E.B. and Casey Research founder Doug Casey share their top investment ideas with Casey Report readers. This month, E.B. recommends buying three key companies that “feed the masses” in America. You can get in on these picks by taking a risk-free trial to The Casey Report. Chart of the Day Oil rigs are shutting down at a record pace… Today’s chart shows the number of oil rigs in North America currently pumping or looking for oil. As you can see, North America’s “active” rig count soared more than 500% from 2008 to 2014. But when oil prices crashed in 2014, many companies shut down their rigs. They couldn’t make money at low oil prices. There are 68% less active rigs today than there were in October 2015. Energy consulting company Wood Mackenzie estimates that $1.5 trillion worth of oil projects in North America can’t make money at $50 oil. With oil at $30 per barrel today, the value of money-losing projects has likely climbed past $2 trillion. The North American oil industry has about 1,100 oil rigs sitting idle today. If oil prices recover, oil companies can bring these rigs back online. That’s bad for oil services companies, like Schlumberger and Halliburton, which make money selling oil rigs to oil companies. • Credit card company American Express (AXP) reported bad results last week… Sales fell 7% from last year. It was the fourth consecutive quarter of shrinking sales. To offset falling sales and earnings, management plans to cut costs by $1 billion over the next two years. The stock is down 21% this year after falling 25% in 2015. E.B. Tucker, editor of The Casey Report, has been warning his readers about the “death of credit cards.” In short, E.B. believes that innovative new technologies like “digital wallets” will replace physical credit cards soon. Digital wallets are more convenient and more secure than credit cards. • However, E.B. expects American Express to survive. He explains why in this short essay… American Express (AXP) is under real pressure. It’s the kind of pressure that’s going to create tremendous change in the credit card business. You see weak companies, and people, crack under pressure. They can’t take it. American Express is not that kind of company. It’s a survivor. Over the last year, American Express lost the exclusive right to issue Costco’s (COST) in-store credit card. For years, Costco only accepted payment by cash, check, or American Express. Losing that status cost AmEx 8% of its entire customer spending. Worse…it lost 20% of outstanding credit card balances. Most credit card companies make money two ways. First, they take a percentage of every transaction from the retailer. This ranges from 1%-5%. American Express is known as being most expensive. Second, they charge customers a monthly interest rate, usually very high, on unpaid balances. American Express had a third way to make money. It calls cardholders “members” and charges them annual membership fees. Green, Gold, and Platinum define the levels and fees range from $100-$500 per year. Recently, the members aren’t seeing the benefit. What was once exclusive now seems standard. The company’s entire premise is under assault. As you can see in this chart its stock is down 26% over the last year. That compares to an 11% increase for competitor Visa (V). –
Not the Same AmericaThis is America, too… but it is not the same America. It is the New World… but not as new as the world north of the Rio Grande. Here, the Old World has not yet been snuffed out. It survives in a semitropical paradise.But the object of our attention today is neither the Old World nor the new one – but the ever-changing, never fully explored idea of America.“Proud to be an American,” says one bumper sticker. “One nation – indivisible,” says another. America was, of course, founded on the opposite principle… the idea that people were free to separate themselves from a parent government whenever they felt they had come of age. But no fraud, no matter how stupendous, is so obvious as to be detected by the average American. That is America’s great strength… or its most serious weakness.After September 11, so many people bought flags that the shops ran short. Old Glory festooned nearly every porch and bridge. Patriotism swelled in every heart.Europeans, coming back to the Old Country, reported that they had never seen anything like it. A Frenchman takes his country for granted. He is born into it, just as he is born into his religion. He may be proud of La Belle France the way he is proud of his cheese. But he is not fool enough to claim credit for either one. He just feels lucky to have them for his own.What Makes America Different?America, by contrast, is a nation of people who chose to become Americans. Even the oldest family tree in the New World has immigrants at its roots. And where did its government, its courts, its businesses, and its saloons come from?They were all invented by us. Having chosen the country… and made it what it is… Americans feel more responsibility for what it has become than the citizens of most other nations. And they take more pride in it, too.But what is it? What has it become? What makes America different from any other nation? Why should we care more about it than about, say, Lithuania or Chad?Pressed for an answer, most Americans would reply, “Because America is a free country.” What else can be said of the place? Its landmass is as varied as the earth itself. Inhabiting the sands of Tucson as well as the steppes of Alaska, Americans could as well be called a desert race as an arctic one.

So for today’s Dispatch, we’re featuring a classic essay from Doug Casey’s longtime friend and colleague Bill Bonner…one that explores a timeless subject: What makes America unique?Below, Bill shines a light on the idea of America and considers whether the country has lived up to its founding principles…By Bill Bonner, chairman, Bonner & Partners“Elizabeth,” I asked this morning as my wife climbed out of the pool. “How would you describe that sea turtle we saw on the beach?”Pausing for a moment, she replied, “Rotating its slow and majestic flippers, it ground its way slowly and inexorably toward China…”The sea turtle was headed east. Whether China was its destination or not, I don’t know. I only know that it was about to leave the Latin America isthmus, from the west coast of Nicaragua, and put out to sea when a muscular, brown young man picked it up and carried it back up on the beach. He and his friends had dug a big hole in the sand where the turtle was placed.At night, we often see the dim light of flashlights along the beach. “It’s the locals looking for turtle eggs,” Manuel explained. “It’s illegal to take them, but…” Manuel shrugged his shoulders.Sea turtles are protected by international convention. But here in the wilds of Nicaragua, they still end up in the soup from time to time. Its religions are equally diverse – from moss-backed Episcopalians of the Virginia tidewater to the Holy Rollers of East Texas to the Muslims of East Harlem.Nor does blood itself give the country any mark of distinction. The individual American has more in common genetically with the people his people come from than with his fellow Americans. In a DNA test, your correspondent is more likely to be mistaken for an IRA hitman than a Baltimore drug dealer.America never was a nation in the usual sense of the word. Though there are plenty of exceptions – especially among the made-up nations of former European colonies – nations are usually composed of groups of people who share common blood, culture, and language.Americans mostly speak English. But they might just as well speak Spanish. And at the debut of the republic, the Founding Fathers narrowly avoided declaring German the official language… at least that is the legend.A Frenchman has to speak French. A German has to speak the language of the Vaterland. But an American could speak anything. And often does.Be What You Want to BeNor is there even a common history. The average immigrant didn’t arrive until the early 20th century. By then, America’s history was already three centuries old. The average citizen missed the whole thing.Neither blood, history, religion, language – what else is left? Only an idea: that you could come to America and be whatever you wanted to be. You might have been a bogtrotter in Ireland or a baron in Silesia; in America, you were free to become whatever you could make of yourself.“Give me liberty or give me death,” said Patrick Henry, raising the rhetorical stakes and praying no one would call him on it. Yet the average man at the time lived in near-perfect freedom.There were few books and few laws on them. And fewer people to enforce them. Henry, if he wanted to do so, could have merely crossed the Blue Ridge west of Charlottesville and never seen another government agent again.Taxation With RepresentationThomas Jefferson complained, in the Declaration of Independence, that Britain had “erected a multitude of New Offices, and set hither swarms of Officers to harass our people, and eat out their substance.”Yet the swarms of officers sent by King George III would have barely filled a midsize regional office of the IRS or city zoning department today.Likewise, the Founding Fathers kvetched about taxation without representation. But history has shown that representation only makes taxation worse. Kings, emperors, and tyrants must keep tax rates low… Otherwise, the people rise in rebellion.It is Democrats that really eat out the substance of the people: The illusion of self-government lets them get away with it. Tax rates were only an average of 3% under the tyranny of King George III. One of the blessings of democracy is average tax rates that are 10 times as high.“Americans today,” wrote Rose Wilder Lane in 1936, after the Lincoln administration had annihilated the principle of self-government… but before the Roosevelt team had finished its work, “are the most reckless and lawless of peoples… We are also the most imaginative, the most temperamental, the most infinitely varied.”But by the end of the 20th century, Americans were required to wear seat belts and ate low-fat yogurt without a gun to their heads. The recklessness seems to have been bred out of them. And the variety, too. North, south, east, and west, people all wear the same clothes and cherish the same decrepit ideas as if they were religious relics.And why not? It’s a free country.Regards,Bill Bonner,Chairman, Bonner & PartnersJustin’s note: Since its founding, America has weathered plenty of changes and come out the other side. But there is a new crisis brewing. And Bill says this one is different… The source of unrest today is not the free market, race, the 1%, or President Trump. It’s a truth about America no one wants to tell you. Learn more here…
Even oil and gas exploration — Embryo selection in in vitro fertilization Recommended Link A Biotech Breakthrough 7 Times Bigger than the Cancer Industry? Rewriting the Rules of Medicine The story I told you above is just one of millions. It is estimated that some 280 million people suffer from a rare genetic disease. Many of them often live their lives undiagnosed. But there is hope on the horizon. The method used by the Wilsey family, genome sequencing, is experiencing exponential growth. The cost of sequencing a human genome has plummeted. The speed of the sequencing technology has grown exponentially. And, thanks to breakthroughs in genetic editing technology, we are on the verge of a complete transformation in medical care. Soon, we’ll be able to identify genetic diseases like cystic fibrosis or sickle cell anemia years before symptoms present themselves. Millions of lives will be saved. Hundreds of billions of dollars typically spent on chronic medical care will be eliminated. And investors in a few key companies at the heart of this revolution stand to profit immensely. Genome Sequencing for $100 The story of how rapid the improvements have been in genomic sequencing is one of the greatest examples of exponential growth, and exponential reduction in costs, in the history of technology. One simple chart from the National Human Genome Research Institute explains it all. We can see the progression in reducing the cost of sequencing a human genome from $100 million in 2001 all the way down to less than $1,000 in 2016. Overall, this progression is far faster than that of Moore’s Law, which accurately predicted that the processing power of microprocessors (semiconductors) would roughly double every two years. From 2001–2007, the speed and reduction in costs of genetic sequencing had been moving as fast as Moore’s Law—roughly doubling in speed and halving in cost every 18 months. But something amazing happened in 2008… Genetic sequencing began accelerating at a speed five times that of Moore’s Law. Now, unless you’ve been working in the technology sector for a few decades, it might be hard to grasp the significance of this. But I’ve worked as a high-technology executive for 25 years. So take my word for it, nothing in the world of technology to date has developed this quickly. It makes the developments in semiconductors during the last decade actually look slow. At this rate, the cost to sequence a human genome will drop to only $100 in the near future. And that changes everything. Replacing amniocentesis for a pre-natal test The Clock Was Ticking… I was going to lose $1,000,000 in 8 hours… It started like any other day. I ate breakfast. Read the paper.

Immuno-oncology Health Insurance Starts to Get On Board We are already starting to see early signs of engagement from the insurance industry at current price points which are approaching $500. As of November 1, UnitedHealthcare began covering “whole exome sequencing for patients where clinical presentation is non-specific and does not fit a well-defined syndrome.” In other words, if a physician knows something is wrong, but can’t figure out what it is, UnitedHealthcare will pay to have the patient’s whole exome sequenced. This will positively impact more than 100 million Americans by providing coverage for this sequencing of rare or undiagnosed conditions. Think of how much time and pain can be saved when a genetic sequence can tell us almost immediately what is wrong… rather than spending years and potentially millions of dollars pursuing ineffective or sometimes lethal therapies. Genetic sequencing can often immediately identify the genetic cause of a disease so that physicians can focus on providing the most appropriate therapeutic regimen for the patient. Almost Endless Applications The world is just starting to scratch the surface of the kinds of applications possible using genetic sequencing. This includes genotyping, sequencing exomes, cancer screening, and whole human genomic sequencing; but what about… On December 19th, an FDA anomaly could launch a new breakthrough biotech industry 35,000%… Making it seven times bigger than the cancer drug industry and crowning it the new king of biotech medicine.

Data storage—yes, you can use techniques to store data on DNA Therapeutic selection Diagnosis of rare genetic diseases Recommended Link — Screening parents before conception to ensure there are no genetic diseases that might be transferred to the child Justin’s note: As I’ve mentioned in the past, part of my job at Casey Research is to pass along valuable ideas and big moneymaking opportunities that come across my desk. Today’s is no exception. It comes from my colleague Jeff Brown, editor of Exponential Tech Investor.Jeff is a high-technology executive with 25 years of experience…and he says he’s never seen a technology develop as quickly as the one he describes below. I think you’ll find this opportunity very interesting… By Jeff Brown, editor, Exponential Tech Investor Grace Wilsey couldn’t cry. As a baby, she would lie limp in her parents’ arms, staring blankly into the distance. Her seizures wouldn’t stop and medical tests showed signs of liver damage. This was all before her second birthday. Grace’s parents were beside themselves, as any parent would be. They traveled the country, visiting specialists. They ran numerous tests, but no one could diagnose Grace’s condition. “We’ve probably seen over 100 doctors,” Grace’s father said in 2014 when Grace’s symptoms were discovered. None of them could provide an explanation. Then, when their daughter turned two years old, the Wilseys tried something else. They had Grace’s entire genome sequenced. A genome is an organism’s complete set of DNA, including all of its genes. “Genome sequencing” is the process of determining the complete DNA sequence. Think of it like creating a “genetic roadmap,” a complete blueprint of an organism’s genetic material. What the genetic sequencing uncovered was astounding. Grace Wilsey had a condition known as NGLY1 Deficiency. In short, the little girl’s NGLY1 genes were mutated. They were like typos in her genetic makeup. One of the gene mutations prevented the little girl from producing tears. At the time, the disorder was so rare that only six people in the entire world had been diagnosed with it. Now that the underlying cause is well understood, no time is wasted. Specific therapies can be developed to deal with this unusual genetic mutation. Because of this rapid increase in the speed of sequencing and the dramatic drop in the cost per sequence, we are going to see explosive growth in these new applications. Current estimates put the global market for genetic sequencing at $5.1 billion. But by 2023, that market is expected to expand to $18.2 billion. That’s a compounded annual growth rate of almost 20% over the next seven years. For investors, this is an opportunity that can’t be ignored. One way you could play this emerging trend is by looking at life sciences giant Thermo Fisher Scientific (TMO). It is one of the leading companies for genetic testing equipment. Or for a more speculative play, Pacific Biosciences (PACB) is worth investigating. PACB specializes in genomic analysis systems and would likely profit as genome sequencing becomes a standard part of healthcare. But treat PACB as a speculation, and be sure to conduct your own research first. And remember, we are still in the early days. There will be even more exciting ways to profit as genetic sequencing rewrites the rules of medicine. Regards, Jeff Brown Editor, Exponential Tech Investor P.S. Genetic sequencing is just one piece of the puzzle. Another trend I’m following is the rise of genetic editing technology. That’s the tech that would let a doctor “edit” parts of a patient’s DNA, curing diseases like cystic fibrosis or Huntington’s permanently. And I’ve identified three small-cap companies that will soar as this technology becomes standard in the next few years. Read more here.

ATLANTA — The Atlanta Hawks didn’t like their defensive performance in the first half, so they decided to double their efforts.“We made sure they had to earn everything they got,” center Al Horford said. “Our team defense was good.”Paul Millsap scored 22 points, Horford added 19 points and the Hawks won their sixth straight game with a 117-98 victory over the New York Knicks on the night of Dec. 26.Carmelo Anthony, returning after missing one game with a sprained right ankle, finished with 18 points and 12 rebounds for the Knicks. New York has dropped three straight and seven of 11.The Knicks’ big men took a beating as Robin Lopez had to get six stitches above his right eye and rookie Kristaps Porzingis had X-rays — came back negative — on a right finger injury.Atlanta trailed by 15 midway through the first quarter and was down 14 late in the third before blowing past the Knicks to take a 20-point lead on Thabo Sefolosha’s three-point play early in the fourth.The Hawks took their first lead of the game on Kent Bazemore’s 3 at 7:56 of the third.Mike Scott had a season-high 18 points and Jeff Teague had 17 for Atlanta, which is 1½ games back of the Eastern Conference lead.Lance Thomas and Derrick Williams each scored 12 for the Knicks.Disrupting New York’s passing lanes on defense and passing the ball crisply around the perimeter on their end, the Hawks outscored the Knicks by 15 in the third. Millsap had 11 of Atlanta’s 27 points.“We couldn’t slow them down and stop the penetration,” New York coach Derek Fisher said. “So they continued to get in our paint almost the entire second half.”The Knicks hit 10 of 13 from the field to take a 15-point lead in the first. Anthony scored nine points and had six rebounds in the period, but he took only eight shots the rest of the game.“I think we just tried to make his catches more difficult (and) further away from the basket,” Hawks coach Mike Budenholzer said. “So his height and size weren’t as impactful.”Atlanta got within three in the second, but New York pushed the lead back to 14 and was shooting nearly 67 percent when Jose Calderon hit a straightaway 3 with 3:49 left before halftime.New York shot 30 percent in the second half. It had 19 assists in the first half, six in the second.“We’ve just got to want it more,” Anthony said. “This is a stretch (of games) where we can kind of define ourselves.”The lead swelled to 17 on Horford’s runner with 9 minutes remaining. Atlanta had outscored New York 52-21 since Calderon’s trey.(GEORGE HENRY) TweetPinShare0 Shares

Viacom and Snapchat have reached an extension on a deal that will allow Viacom to sell advertising on the app’s behalf, according to reports.[Related: Ad Week 2015: Celebrities, Industry Leaders, and Media’s Top Execs Gather in NYC]Viacom will now have the right to sell against its own content on Snapchat and the app’s advertising inventory, a Snapchat spokesman told Reuters.Snapchat’s “Live Stories,”Â which curate user posts in specific geographic locations or during large holidays, is included in the agreement, the spokesman added. Last year, MTV drew 12 million users to a Live Story for the VMAs, the Los Angeles Times reports, compared with only 5 million who watched the main telecast.Viacom, which owns popular networks including BET, Comedy Central, and MTV,Â is the only television company to have this arrangement with the app, he said. Under the deal, Snapchat cannot sell ads for Discover channels or Live Stories that are tied to other media companies or made for outside the U.S.“We believe we are a great fit,” Viacom Chairman and CEO Philippe Dauman told analysts on a conference call. “I don’t want to toot our own horn, but they saw in us the most forward-looking ad-sales group out there.”Experts say it’s a huge deal for Viacom which has seen drops in revenue and the move is a hopeful one in terms of boosting ad sales. Viacom’s shares fell Tuesday, according to reports, more than 10% to $36 a share–a new 52-week low.“This deal between Viacom and Snapchat is a major step forward in the evolution of the marketplace, made possible by our shared focus on young audiences and Viacom’s content expertise, proprietary targeting, custom marketing solutions, industry-leading sales force, and our global strength,” Dauman said.No details of the financial terms of the deal were disclosed. be_ixf; php_sdk; php_sdk_1.4.18 https://www.blackenterprise.com/viacom-and-snapchat-extend-advertising-deal/ https://www.blackenterprise.com/viacom-and-snapchat-extend-advertising-deal/

Modify current recruiting techniques The Center for American Progress (CAP) released a report that challenges Silicon Valley’s oft-repeated claim that there is a lack of diversity in the tech talent pipeline and other excuses that are used to explain why the tech industry remains so obstinately white and male.CAP first tackles the issue of the lack of a diverse tech talent pipeline. The report acknowledges that better and increased science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) training has to be introduced at the K-12 grade levels in diverse communities.However, the report also asserts, “The educational pipeline is not the primary cause of the absence of people of color in Silicon Valley.â€ Citing statistics from the National Science Foundation, people of color under the age of 45, account for 18.8% of computer and mathematical sciences degree holders.Yet, they aren’t getting jobs. Seven percent of these men and 12% of women of color are unemployed versus 2% for white men with the same degrees. People of color are also more likely to work in a field unrelated to STEM versus white men.To put these numbers in perspective: blacks and Hispanics are 16.9% of California’s citizenship. But they represent only 6.9% of Silicon Valley’s workforce. There are more than four times as many foreigners hired in Silicon Valley companies.The study also proposes that companies’ efforts to create and increase diversity training are futile. Instead, the diversity training programs that many tech companies adopt are often convenient ways for those companies to declare their workplaces diversity-friendly.Finally, the CAP report claps back on the idea that lack of diversity is an issue throughout the tech industry, not just Silicon Valley. The reality is that major tech hubs outside of Silicon Valley are “noticeably more racially diverse.â€The report concludes with a variety of proposed policies for realistically increasing Silicon Valley’s diversity:Require accountability and provide incentives for building diversity and fostering inclusion Develop diversity plans based on concrete goals and robust evaluations be_ixf; php_sdk; php_sdk_1.4.18 https://www.blackenterprise.com/report-stop-lack-tech-talent-pipeline-foolishness/ https://www.blackenterprise.com/report-stop-lack-tech-talent-pipeline-foolishness/
Dana White addresses contender status of Colby Covington, Leon Edwards, Corey Anderson SANTA MONICA, Calif. — Viacom invested quite a bit in Quinton Jackson when it signed the MMA standout to a multi-tiered contract two years ago. “Rampage” was promoted hard by Bellator and also made appearances on TNA Impact pro wrestling, which was on Spike TV at the time.Last month, though, Jackson surprisingly announced that he had re-signed with the UFC, which drew many questions. Wasn’t he still under contract with Viacom and Bellator? Bellator MMA president Scott Coker said that indeed is the case. But Jackson counters that he terminated the agreement per the language in his deal when a dispute was not addressed within the contracted 45-day window.”It’s disappointing,” Spike TV president Kevin Kay told MMAFighting.com on Thursday at a media day to promote Premier Boxing Champions on Spike. “It’s not unexpected if you look at the history of that particular fighter. That’s all I can really say.”Jackson, 36, has often been down on his employers. He left the UFC in 2013 when his contract expired and spent the next few months bashing the organization, which he believed tried to ruin his brand. Jackson said the UFC continuously gave him bad matchups and caused him to no longer love the sport of MMA.Now, though, he is back with that organization and is booked to fight at UFC 186 against Fabio Maldonado on April 25. “Rampage” tweeted in November that sometimes it’s better to stay with the devil you know, referring to the UFC. Which is More Dangerous – MMA or Football? Esther Lin, MMA Fighting Standard Ranked Rashguard More From Ariel Helwani asked Coker on this past Monday’s The MMA Hour about “Rampage” being booked to fight at UFC 186. Coker responded: “In this sport, nothing surprises me.” Top Contenders for Fight of the Year Just a thought.. But I’ve learned a big lesson in life and business: sometimes u should just stay with the devil u know @ufc— Quinton Jackson (@Rampage4real) November 18, 2014Coker has remained mum on the subject since his initial statement, halting questions with the phrase: “It’s in the hands of the lawyers.” Kay did the same thing when asked where Bellator goes from here Thursday.”I can’t comment on it,” he said. “That’s in the hands of wherever it’s gonna be.”Though the legal team has taken the reins, it remains unclear whether Bellator will file an injunction in an attempt to block Jackson from fighting for the UFC in April.In an interview with MMAFighting.com in December, Coker compared the Jackson situation to one between the UFC and Mark Cuban-owned HDNet Fights over Randy Couture in 2008. The UFC ended up winning that battle and Couture re-signed after initially wanting to jump ship to HDNet Fights for massive bout with Fedor Emelianenko.

The undefeated fighter submitted Emily Ducote at Bellator 186 this past November to become the promotion’s inaugural champion at 125 pounds.A KHON2 news crews in had already been working on a feature for Macfarlane and they would be present at the party, so she decided it just made sense for them to stick around and watch as Alan was formally reunited with his brother.“When I came home we planned this belt party for me to celebrate with everybody, and we decided why don’t we share the news with the rest of the family and reveal Uncle Robby?” Macfarlane told MMA Fighting. “That way he can meet the rest of the family, because Uncle Robby was an only child growing up. He had another brother but the brother died of an illness when he was 19, so he doesn’t really have any cousins or nieces or nephews or anything, and so he can meet his side of the family now.“The news stations were actually there for me, for the belt party, to get footage because I was doing interviews with them all week, and I asked them, ‘Hey, would you guys be able to just stay a little bit later and get this story on my dad because I think it’s really awesome and everybody needs to hear about it.’ So they did and it ended up going viral and blowing up, so that was my part in the whole reveal.” While Walter is still hoping that he can find more information about his biological father, for now the Macfarlanes are thrilled to be welcoming not just their uncle, but the family he brings along with him that includes his wife Eva and their two children.For Ilima, that might mean asking Bellator for a few more free tickets the next time she’s in action.“It’s so cool because ever since they found out, they’ve been attached at the hip,” said Macfarlane. “They hang out every day, they come to all the family stuff, New Year’s they were all at my sister’s house, Christmas we were all together, so it’s been amazing. They’re talking about coming to my next fight, wherever that is, so it’s like there was no time lost at all. It’s like, ‘Yeah, this is our family.’ It’s perfect. It’s such a perfect addition.”As for when that chance will come to see her work, Macfarlane hopes to have her first title defense in April at a yet-to-be-announced Bellator event expected to feature Fedor Emelianenko vs. Frank Mir. She’s interested in fighting Valerie Letourneau, the one-time UFC strawweight title challenger who recently made a successful promotional debut with a unanimous decision win over Kate Jackson at Bellator 191.According to Macfarlane, she and Letourneau are “super cool with each other” and have been going back and forth about potentially fighting, though nothing is official.Watch KHON2’s feature on the best-friends-turned-brothers below.

He inadvertently ended up discovering that his close friend Alan was actually his biological brother who had been given up for adoption 15 months after Walter was born.It was Walter’s daughter Cindy who put the wheels in motion for the mystery to be unraveled, and eventually the Macfarlane family found out that Alan — who Ilima had presciently been referring to as “Uncle Robby” — was Walter Macfarlane’s brother. The revelation was first reported by KHON2 in Honolulu, Hawaii and later picked up by several major outlets including CNN, much to Ilima’s amusement.

Table Talk: Mary Ting Hyatt of Bagelsaurus The benevolent baker shares how she prefers her bagels, her dream collab, and more. Print 3/28/2017, 9:23 a.m. By Alex Wilking· Sign up for The Feed. The latest on the city’s restaurants scene.* Welcome to Table Talk, a series where we get to know your favorite local food industry professionals.Mary Ting Hyatt of Bagelsaurus. / Photo providedThe rise of Bagelsaurus from weekly Brookline pop-up to Porter Square hotspot may not phase you anymore. Baker extraordinaire Mary Ting Hyatt has spent almost four years turning her chewy creations into jumbo sandwiches and pizza bagels (now a Monday staple), to much delight. But perhaps the best measure of her cult success is how many devotees simply eat their bagels with a swipe of butter or cream cheese. Simplicity and patience are key at the bakery: Just as Hyatt leaves her five-ingredient bagels to ferment overnight, those making the pilgrimage to her shop should expect to wait, as lines normally snake out the door. But trust us—the journey is worth it after the first bite.This conversation has been edited for length and clarity.What’s your favorite ingredient?Sorry to be boring, but butter and flour. I’m a baker, so that’s what I like to play around with.What kitchen tools have you worn out at the restaurant?Our roasting pan, which we boil all of our bagels in, gets a lot of wear and tear. [And] both of our mixers, which is amazing because we used to mix [our bagels] all by hand at Cutty’s when I was doing the pop-up. That gets a lot of much-appreciated use.What’s the secret to the perfect bagel?Everyone’s idea of a perfect bagel is different. But for me, those tiny, crackly bubbles on the crust are essential.How do you eat your bagels?Fifteen minutes out of the oven, with mustard butter.What moment made you realize you wanted to be a baker?It really all started with my semester studying abroad in Buenos Aires, Argentina. [I] spent the entire five months exploring cafés and restaurants. On top of that, my host family made the most wonderful desserts, which I immediately tried to replicate when I returned to the states.I actually went to cooking school directly out of college. I wanted to be a high school English teacher, but I didn’t get any of the positions I wanted, so I decided to go for my dream—culinary school—thinking that nothing would really come of it. I just started working at restaurants right after and totally fell in love with it.What really drew me to baking, more than the subject matter, were the hours: I knew I wanted to make food, but I didn’t want to work at night. I didn’t want to wait until 2 p.m. to go to work, and then work until midnight. So I fell in love with the early mornings of baking and I loved working with yeast. Just seeing things transform in the oven the way they do was magical.If you could grab coffee with anyone, who would it be and why?Ina Garten. I’d love to be friends.What music do you rock in the kitchen?I rely on the music of my cool employees more than I do my own [laughs]. They have better tastes than I do. It also varies depending on who the baker is [that day]. Personally, I love to listen to Robyn and Abba—but not everyone else does.Sweet or Savory?Sweet. Easy. My favorite food is ice cream: I would eat that every day if it was available to me. I love sweet breakfast pastries, too.Favorite ice cream flavor?Cookies and cream is up there. Anything mocha or coffee is, too. And I love anything, and everything, banana-related. I guess that’s also one of my favorite ingredients [laughs].If you could collaborate with anyone locally, who would it be?I really admire the women of the Oleana/Sofra/Sarma group: Ana [Sortun], Cassie [Piuma], and Maura [Kilpatrick]. I love their flavors, and their food is something I don’t know a lot about, but I really admire it and love that they continue to develop it and introduce people to new things. It’s [also] interesting and cool how they’ve expanded and created something very new each time.What’s your most memorable meal you’ve had?It’s nothing fancy. It’s a meal my family had over and over again at this wonderful Chinese restaurant, Tung Yen, in my home state of Delaware. We would snack on fried noodles while my grandfather would proudly order for all of us in Chinese. Then, we would feast on hot and sour soup, pan-fried dumplings, Szechuan chicken, and beef with broccoli. The restaurant is gone now, but I can still taste it all.Bagelsaurus, 1796 Massachusetts Ave., Cambridge, 857-285-6103, bagelsaurus.com.
000 Cambridge Considers Public Narcan Proposal The city may install public lockboxes stocked with the overdose antidote. Narcan photo by VCU CNS on Flickr/Creative CommonsIf you saw someone in the throes of a drug overdose, would you help? Would you know how?In Cambridge, those questions may become more relevant than ever. The city is considering a proposal that would place lockboxes stocked with Narcan, a nasal spray used to reverse opioid overdoses, on its streets, the New York Times reports. To access the Narcan—which is non-habit-forming and has no effect on those not overdosing—passersby would need to call 911, get a code to unlock the box, and stay on the line for instructions.The proposal is a ways away from reality; city officials and residents likely wouldn’t vote on an official plan for at least a year. But the idea has sparked enough interest to inspire an unusual study.Late last month, Brigham and Women’s Hospital (BWH) teamed up with city officials to test the model in Central Square. They placed a dummy on the ground, and asked pedestrians to pretend they’d just come upon a stranger suffering an overdose. They were then put on the phone with a pretend emergency dispatcher, who guided them through unlocking the box and administering Narcan.“We want to see if regular people walking down the street would be willing to help someone who appeared to be overdosing,” Scott Goldberg, director of emergency services at BWH, told the Times. “And if they were willing to help, would they be able to help?”Dozens of people agreed to participate, and many—though not all—had positive responses to the experience. (You can see detailed feedback in the Times story.)The lockbox model, however, is not without its critics. Some feel that easy-to-access Narcan encourages irresponsible drug use. Others feel that administering the drug should not be the responsibility of civilians, especially without significant public education.Cambridge, however, isn’t alone in considering drastic—and controversial—solutions to a drastic problem. The Massachusetts Medical Society in April voted to endorse a safe injection facility for users, while the Department of Public Health is seeking additional funding for needle exchange sites. 5/10/2017, 9:51 a.m. By Jamie Ducharme· Read all about the latest gym openings, healthy events, and fitness trends in our twice weekly Wellness newsletter.
