    LOS ANGELES -- Maxwell Moore is a 16-year combat veteran with the Navy where he served as a corpsman. Upon coming home to Los Angeles after several tours of duty the local VA recommended he pick up a hobby that keeps his hands busy to help him deal with his PTSD. That's when he turned to something he learned as a child - making soap."The soap kind of kept him alive," says Maxwell's Soaps COO, Joe Palacios. "It kind of saved his life, it gave him something to do." One-day while walking on the streets of Downtown Los Angeles he was asked for spare change. He had nothing to offer except his hand-made soap. He was shocked to learn how grateful the individual was to receive it. "That was kind of the aha moment for me," Moore told Localish.

    ViacomCBS’ Paramount Plus will launch March 4, the company announced Tuesday. If you’re already a subscriber to CBS All Access, don’t worry, this is just a name change, not a new thing to buy. Plans for the rebranding/relaunching were announced in September. Paramount rejoined ViacomCBS at the end of 2019, following the re-merger of Viacom and CBS (those two companies had first split in 2006). This means, basically, that Paramount Pictures’ holdings will join a library that includes content from CBS and subsidiary networks BET, Comedy Central, MTV, and Nickelodeon. All of the networks will be developing original series for Paramount Plus, the company reported back in September. Paramount Plus will be an all-in-one on-demand service that also offers subscribers local affiliates’ network programming and live sports, such as the NFL.

    By Rishi Iyengar | CNN Business Mukesh Ambani has spent years trying to turn his inherited oil business into a tech empire. In 2020, that pivot really kicked into overdrive. Between March and November last year, even as the coronavirus upended lives and devastated economies around the world, India’s richest man was handed more than $27 billion to make a bet on the future of the internet. More than half that eye-popping amount came from Silicon Valley. It started with $5.7 billion from Facebook in March, one of the biggest investments in the American company’s history. Silver Lake Partners, the private equity firm based eight miles from Facebook’s Menlo Park headquarters, followed with its own investment just weeks later, as did Palo Alto’s General Atlantic and San Francisco-headquartered TPG Capital. Smaller investments from Qualcomm and Intel came next, before Google swooped in with $4.5 billion to swell the impressive war...

    Virgin Group has spent years working on one of its most ambitious projects: Virgin Orbit, a company whose goal was become the first company capable of putting satellites into orbit from an airplane. And this Sunday he succeeded. How have they done it? His ‘Cosmic Girl’ transport plane is the main engine of the feat. This is a modified Boeing 747 that takes off from the earth and it transports a rocket to an altitude that is optimal for launching it. Upon reaching this altitude, the rocket, called LauncherOne, decouples from the plane and completes the last stage of the journey by itself to ‘deliver’ the satellites to low Earth orbit. With operations for our # LaunchDemo2 mission already in full swing, it’s an exciting morning here at Mojave Air and Space Port! LOX loading on the rocket has begun, and we’re looking good to hit our target takeoff...

    In 1973 Korg released its first mass-produced mono synth — the miniKORG 700. It’s a landmark instrument, but one that’s often overshadowed by the likes of the Minimoog Model D. And even when it comes to the company’s own products, it’s the MS-20 that usually comes to mind first. Now Korg is finally giving the 700 the recognition it deserves with a 100-percent analog reissue the miniKORG 700FS. The company even brought back the original designer, Fumio Mieda to oversee the development. To be completely accurate, this is a reissue of the 700S, which came out the following year. It’s almost identical to the 700, except that it adds a second oscillator and a ring modulation circuit for richer sounds. The FS also adds plenty of modern amenities while staying true to the original. Smaller, modern components made it possible to squeeze in a spring reverb tank as...

    The trendy punk Dr Martens boots that were the the height of fashion for punk rockers in the eighties and nineties have made a comeback amid the Covid-19 crisis.

    Toxic chemicals have been stored for years unprotected in the port of the Lebanese capital Beirut, a German team of experts tasked with recovering the chemicals said Monday. “Large quantities of toxic and highly flammable substances have been stored there for years without special safety measures”, explains Michael Wentler, director of the specialist company Höppner. “The dangerous substance partially found its way through the barrels and containers and spilled out. From there it almost certainly reached the sea.” The explosion in the port of Beirut on August 4 killed more than 200 people. It was caused by a fire in a warehouse where large amounts of ammonium nitrate had been neglected for years. Large parts of the port and the surrounding neighborhoods were completely destroyed. Together with another German company, Combi Lift, Höppner is responsible for the recovery of 52 containers. According to Michael Wentler, some of them...

    With only a few days to go, the administration of Trump has decided to launch one last blow to China by charging again against Huawei, notifying all the manufacturer’s suppliers of the revocation of the main licenses to sell components to the Chinese company, anticipating its intentions to reject all applications to supply the telecommunications company. The action is expected to be the last of the current administration, which has sought to limit the dominance of Chinese tech firms, accusing them of being agents of the Chinese government and national security risks. And is that Huawei has been the target of these restrictions since last May 2019, used as a clear scapegoat in the trade war with the Chinese government, in a tug of war that led the company to have to sell its Honor sub-brand to regain solvency and avoid the veto. As a general rule, American companies could...
    The pandemic made it clear that companies that knew how to adapt faster, streamline their processes and incorporate new technologies had a competitive advantage over those who resist digital transformation or did not know how to apply it to their business model. However, a key element in this transition was the human factor, since the good execution of any digital strategy and its success depend on it. This new panorama is leading companies to rethink the strength of the technology-human binomial as a team that complements each other to take the company to a new stage of exponential and sustained growth. The era of automation and Artificial Intelligence (AI) opens thousands of possibilities for companies, while also creating a more competitive environment, in which outstanding businesses must manage smart digital transformation strategies, which include both technological part as its human complement.Well-trained and well-managed tools generate faster, more efficient and more...

    Among other factors, price and quality are essential to select a supplier. August 18, 2019 5 min read This article was translated from our Spanish edition using AI technologies. Errors may exist due to this process. It is a fact that no company can subsist without inputs, and therefore not without suppliers. While it is true that some suppliers are not crucial, it is also true that others are of vital importance, since they have an impact on the financial results of the company. Negotiation is a key factor in obtaining excellent quality products at a good price. For example, strategic alliances and agreements allow us to obtain a special price per volume. When selecting a supplier there are many factors that we must take into account: price, payment terms, quality, and service. Before making a decision, it is important that we seek...
    The American company conducted a study together with the University of Oxford based on their administrative data. The analysis says that the average London driver earns around 11 pounds per hour, just above the minimum wage in the British capital, according to the BBC. In June 2018, Westminster Magistrates Court Judge Emma Arbuthnot ruled that Uber could obtain a 15-month license to operate in London, subject to strict conditions. Uber lost its license again on November 25, 2019. TfL referred to a “pattern of failures” in terms of security that made the transport application unfit to perform its services. A change in Uber’s systems allowed unauthorized drivers to upload their photos to other accounts, which meant they could pick up passengers as if they were the hired driver, something that happened in at least 14,000 trips, the London regulator noted. Uber, which has about 45,000...

    Virgin Orbit — the sister company of billionaire Richard Branson’s space tourism outfit Virgin Galactic — will try a second test of its small satellite-launching rocket later today, months after it failed to reach orbit during a first attempt. It will also be the first time that the company tries to launch working satellites into space on behalf of NASA. Sometime after 1PM ET, Virgin Orbit’s customized Boeing 747 will take off from Virgin Galactic’s spaceport in the Mojave desert and ascend to 35,000 feet with the satellite-launching rocket attached to its wing.

Virgin Orbit says the window for launch will last until 5PM ET. There is no live stream of the test, though the company plans to tweet...

    Civil wars within media companies over published articles is becoming the norm, with infighting plaguing both legacy and smaller, online publications. While each instance differs from the other, the underlying message is clear: True intellectual diversity is not welcomed, and staffers are willing to publicly condemn their own company to prevent dissenting views. Surprising nobody, 100% of these staff revolts broke one way politically. Politico: Ben Shapiro’s ‘Playbook’ The latest staffroom revolt comes after Politico allowed conservative commentator and podcast host Ben Shapiro to write Thursday’s “Playbook” newsletter. Shapiro touched on “the real reason” behind why most Republicans still oppose impeaching President Donald Trump, even after some of his supporters stormed the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6. “Opposition to impeachment comes from a deep and abiding conservative belief that members of the opposing political tribe want their destruction, not simply to punish Trump for his behavior,” Shapiro wrote as he...

    Andy Jassy, CEO of Amazon Web Services.CNBC Getting kicked off Amazon Web Services is rare, but it has enormous consequences. It happened this week, when Amazon dropped Parler, a social network that gained traction from conservatives after Twitter banned President Donald Trump and housed content that encouraged violence.

Last month, Carolina Panthers offensive tackle Russell Okung negotiated half of his $13 million contract to be paid to him in Bitcoin. Bitcoin was created with a stated goal of eliminating the need for third-party financial transactions, an "alternative financial system," according to Satoshi Nakamoto, a pseudonym for the person or group of people widely credited with creating Bitcoin.
