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.

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. So how was it all caused by a rock hurtling into the coast of Central America?" ____________________ Elements is more than just a science show.
