Rebuilding Better: A Virtual Town Hall for America’s Small & New Business OwnersOur communities are reeling from an economic halt while facing racial justice issues that strike the core of our nation. As we rebuild in a post-COVID world, we need to ensure small and new businesses not only survive but thrive. Businesses less than five years old create nearly all net new jobs in the country, yet they continue to be left out of the national dialogue. And the reality is that the people with the passion and desire to start a business are stopped in their tracks because of limited access to capital and support networks. This is especially true for people of color, women, and rural entrepreneurs. CNBC + Acorns' Invest in You: Ready. Set. Grow. and the Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation are teaming up to host a virtual town hall that will address the critical issues facing small businesses and share solutions that can rebuild our economy and level the playing field. Small and new business owners will have direct access to a team of some of the country’s most knowledgeable entrepreneurs, small business advisors, financial experts and thought leaders. Select small business owners will have the opportunity to ask their most pressing questions about how they can best adapt their business and finances to the world around them.

Here's why people refuse to use COVID-19 tracing appsFor about a month now, I’ve had the government’s official COVID Alert app installed on my phone. It is active and monitoring.

People of Praise: Former Member of Group Tied to SCOTUS Front-Runner Amy Barrett Calls It a “Cult”As President Trump appears poised to announce a nominee to replace Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg on the Supreme Court, we speak with a former member of the secretive Catholic group People of Praise, known for its rigid gender roles and lifelong loyalty oaths, which apparent front-runner Judge Amy Coney Barrett is a member of. “Many call it a community, but I describe it as a cult,” says Coral Anika Theill, who was a member of People of Praise from 1979 to 1984 and is now speaking out against the organization. #DemocracyNow Democracy Now! is an independent global news hour that airs on nearly 1,400 TV and radio stations Monday through Friday.

What Really Killed the Dinosaurs?One of science's biggest mysteries — what caused the dinosaurs to go extinct — may have finally been put to rest. » Subscribe to Seeker! http://bit.ly/subscribeseeker » Watch more Elements! http://bit.ly/ElementsPlaylist » Visit our shop at http://shop.seeker.com Thanks to this recently published study in Science, we might have finally learned the truth behind what really killed dinosaurs once and for all. It’s been told that an asteroid more than 10-kilometers across slammed into the Yucatan Peninsula, putting an end to the dinosaur's long reign. But the actual ‘cause of death’ has been the center of a decades-long raging controversy. Many scientists have argued for alternative theories to explain what brought on the dinosaur’s final days, including cosmic rays, an outbreak of disease, or as we previously reported, an inferno of blazing wildfires. But aside from the asteroid, there is another competing theory involving massive volcanic eruptions that happened around the same time, leading to some confusion over which is the actual culprit. Find out more about how this newfound research could provide a definitive timeline that could likely end the decades-old argument in this Elements. #dinosaurs #bigbangtheory #volcanoes #science #seeker #elements Read More: Asteroid impact, not volcanic eruptions, killed the dinosaurs https://www.ucl.ac.uk/news/2020/jan/asteroid-impact-not-volcanic-eruptions-killed-dinosaurs "In a Yale-led study, published today in Science, analysis of marine fossils and climate models shows that the major release of volcanic gasses, thought by some to contribute to the extinction, happened about 200,000 years before the asteroid impact, making the asteroid the sole driver of the extinction event." The Nastiest Feud in Science https://www.theatlantic.com/magazine/archive/2018/09/dinosaur-extinction-debate/565769/ "Before the asteroid hypothesis took hold, researchers had proposed other, similarly bizarre explanations for the dinosaurs’ demise: gluttony, protracted food poisoning, terminal chastity, acute stupidity, even Paleo-weltschmerz—death by boredom." How an asteroid ended the age of the dinosaurs https://www.nhm.ac.uk/discover/how-an-asteroid-caused-extinction-of-dinosaurs.html "Around 75% of Earth's animals, including dinosaurs, suddenly died out at the same point in time.

Sony’s new AI agent achieves superhuman Gran Turismo Sport scoresOne of the best things about computers is that they can learn just as much from a simulation as they can from so-called ‘real world’ experiences. That means, given the proper simulator, we can teach AI to drive cars without ever putting a single human in danger. Just about every AI company trains their driverless […]

Column: Big night for Las Vegas Raiders, their new hometownLAS VEGAS (AP) - As the light outside faded, the glittering casinos on the Las Vegas Strip came to life Monday evening through the giant lanai doors in the new home of the Raiders. If the backdrop was spectacular, so was the scene on the field. There were the Raiders playing the New Orleans Saints before a national television audience, a moment the late Howard Cosell would have never imagined when Monday Night Football kicked off exactly a half-century earlier. No one else would have imagined it would take place before 65,000 empty seats, but that's sports during a pandemic. Not only were fans missing - at least indoors - but so was Raiders owner Mark Davis, who expressed his solidarity with his new city by watching on TV with other team executives at the Raiders' practice facility. His mother, Carol, was there, leading a ceremonial lighting of the giant torch honoring her late husband, Al. So was NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell, who just a few years ago was threatening to suspend any player who might even accidentally enter a casino in this gambling town. And everything in the sparkling new $2 billion Allegiant Stadium screamed the Silver and Black - even if there were no actual fans there to scream for their team. Best of all, a town that loves a winner got one. The Raiders overcame an early 10-0 deficit to dominate most of the rest of the way, beating Drew Brees and the New Orleans Saints 34-24. And, in true Las Vegas fashion, coach Jon Gruden compared it to the kind of big events Las Vegas was known for before it landed an NFL team. "We knew it was going to be a 15-round fight here tonight," he said. "You just got to keep swinging against New Orleans because they have the heart of a champion." The newest show just off the Strip at the corner of Al...
