Investor Li Jin helped popularize the idea of the Creator Economy — the theory that many people who make stuff online could and should get paid for that work. Then she merged that pitch with an embrace of crypto/Web3 — and by 2021 the New York Times was calling her the “It Girl in venture capital.” Now many of the people who embraced both creator economy investments and crypto want nothing to do with that. But not Jin, who says she's still all in. She talks to Recode's Peter Kafka about launching a fund in a pandemic, riding out a down cycle, and what it's like to be the face of thesis.

What You Need to Know is a brief lesson in original classification authority. You can quibble about whether documents were properly declassified or copied, but U.S. Presidents get that privilege because they are the ultimate authority over classification. Vice Presidents are not. The swamped-up media is being absolutely dishonest in their comparison of stories and facts. Pay attention! Gregory Wrightstone is a geologist, Executive Director at the CO2 Coalition, and author of Inconvenient Facts, weighs in on the Biden Administration's floating of banning gas stoves! He breaks it all down and tells us the real reason why this move is in the news. Be sure to check out his website, co2coalition.org.

(and) modeling complex problems – I feel like I've been trying to solve a giant puzzle for the last 25 years!” [09.17] From cycle speed to increasing complexity, the key changes and challenges faced by today's supply chains. “All this new technology is allowing us to move the envelope. But the complexity of the problems that we have to resolve is also increasing exponentially. So you have this race between a goal post that's moving very fast, and technology that's trying to catch up... The problem goes beyond supply chain. ” [13.10] An overview of Aera – what they do, how they help their customers and their vision for customers, and for the industry. “The vision we had is simple… building a technology that would allow the thinking to be connected to the doing.” [16.40] Decision Intelligence: what it means, why Gartner has recognized it as a top industry trend for this year, and how it works with Aera. [25.45] A closer look at Aera's four key product areas: Aera Understands, Aera Recommends, Aera Predicts and Aera Acts. [35.00] Fred's reflections on the balance between people and technology, the importance of collaboration and why Aera is embracing a new era of citizen data scientists. “The operationalization of data science is really the next frontier.” [38.04] The ideal client for Aera, a closer look at onboarding and integration, and the importance of finding the balance between time to go live and time to value. “Its not a competition between the human operator and the system – it's a collaboration.” [44.03] A case study showing how Aera helped a key client increase their accuracy and response rate, leading to an increase in customer satisfaction, a decrease in order cancellations and, ultimately, higher profit. “What excites me about this adventure is that we're deploying a technology that's new to enable companies to do things that were not happening before.” RESOURCES AND LINKS MENTIONED: Head over to Aera Technology's website now to find out more and discover how they could help you too.

A new study in the journal Nature Communications finds "no evidence of a meaningful relationship" between Russian disinformation and voting behavior in the 2016 election.

As a child, travel journalist Mark Chesnut often dodged discomfort by hopping on the nearest plane, train or bus. Raised by a single mother in New York State and navigating the world as a young gay boy in the 1970s, he is the first to admit that he often turned to travel as both a physical — and figurative — escape. From creating imaginary airlines to “gate raiding” at local airports and posing as a female travel agent to get free airplane posters, Chesnut has long used his enthusiasm about travel to tap into his creativity — a skill that he puts to daily use while working as an award-winning freelance travel writer for publications such as HuffPost (formerly The Huffington Post), Forbes Travel Guide, Travel Weekly and TravelAge West, among others. In this episode of Humans of Travel, Chesnut takes listeners along on his journey toward radical self-acceptance. He describes the challenges of coming out to his traditional-but-supportive mother, his transformative trips across the globe and how, through persistence, he was able to turn his passions into a career. We'll also hear about how Chesnut's role as a travel writer has shifted due to the COVID-19 pandemic, and how he has dealt with the rise of “travel shaming.” Note: Chesnut's memoir, tentatively titled “Prepare for Departure: A Travel Writer's Notes on Life, Death and Growing Up Different,” will be published by Vine Leaves Press. It will be available for pre-order in May 2022.

Evidence That Challenges The Somatic Mutation Theory Of Cancer Dr. Thomas Seyfried, • Contact: firstname.lastname@example.org • Book – Cancer as a Metabolic Disease #ThomasSeyfried#Cancer #MetabolicDisease Dr. Thomas Seyfried, is a professor and author publishing a groundbreaking book; Cancer as a Metabolic Disease: On the Origin, Management, and Prevention of Cancer.This book addresses controversies related to the origins of cancer and provides solutions to cancer management and prevention. It expands upon Otto Warburg's well-known theory that all cancer is a disease of energy metabolism. However, Warburg did not link his theory to the "hallmarks of cancer" and thus his theory was discredited. This book aims to provide evidence, through case studies, that cancer is primarily a metabolic disease requiring metabolic solutions for its management and prevention. Support for this position is derived from critical assessment of current cancer theories. Brain cancer case studies are presented as a proof of principle for metabolic solutions to disease management, but similarities are drawn to other types of cancer, including breast and colon, due to the same cellular mutations that they demonstrate. The book also provides extensive information showing that cancer can be best defined as a mitochondrial metabolic disease rather than as a genetic disease. This new concept has implications for the development of new non-toxic cancer therapies including the ketogenic diet. Experts in the cancer research field have praised this comprehensive study as one of science's hottest topics. Dr. Thomas Seyfried received his Ph.D. in Genetics and Biochemistry from the University of Illinois, Urbana. He did his undergraduate work at the University of New England, where he recently received the distinguished Alumni Achievement Award. He has a Master's degree in Genetics from Illinois State University. Thomas Seyfried served with distinction in the United States Army's during the Vietnam War and received numerous medals and commendations. He was a Postdoctoral Fellow in the Department of Neurology at the Yale University School of Medicine and then served on the faculty as an Assistant Professor in Neurology. Other awards and honors have come from such diverse organizations as the American Oil Chemists Society, the National Institutes of Health, The American Society for Neurochemistry, and the Ketogenic Diet Special Interest Group of the American Epilepsy Society. Dr. Seyfried previously served as Chair, Scientific Advisory Committee for the National Tay-Sachs and Allied Diseases Association and presently serves on several editorial boards, including those for Nutrition & Metabolism, Neurochemical Research, the Journal of Lipid Research, and ASN Neuro, where he is a Senior Editor. Dr. Seyfried has over 150 peer-reviewed publications and is the author of the book “Cancer as a Metabolic Disease: On the Origin, Management, and Prevention of Cancer (Wiley Press).” To Contact Dr Thomas N.

The latest news this morning comes via our colleagues Olivia Beavers, Jordain Carney and Sarah Ferris, who note that McCarthy is now “punting conferencewide races for committee leadership slots until after his speaker election on Jan. 3,” which could “incapacitate Republicans during a crucial planning period, virtually guaranteeing a sluggish start for the new House majority.” McCarthy can't risk pissing off members who lose these races to run House Committees. The downside of this delay is stark: “days, if not weeks, of uncertainty for GOP committees as they begin their stint in the majority. Some of the most important panels, including those charged with tax-writing and border security, won't be able to prepare bills, tee up hearings, or even hire staff. While some House committees already have uncontested leaders in place, those chairs won't be able to choose their member lineup or potentially pay staff. The GOP's subpoena power, too, will be frozen.” Plus, deputy editor Zack Stanton and co-author Eugene Daniels recap Eugene's trip to the White House Holiday Party.

On Friday, after a group of seven House conservatives issued a public letter outlining the demands that GOP Leader Kevin McCarthy would need to meet to win their support in his bid for speaker, a key McCarthy backer quietly reached out to several moderate Republicans with a request, according to people familiar with the conversations. The Freedom Caucus rabble-rousers had reiterated their demand that McCarthy restore a 200-year-old, now-infamous House rule known as the “motion to vacate,” which allows any one member to force a floor vote to oust the speaker at any moment. McCarthy's camp wanted the centrists to push back hard on the proposal, which the speaker-hopeful fiercely opposes. If they did, McCarthy would be able to point to their opposition, say his hands are tied and refuse to give in to conservatives' demands. McCarthy's office declined to comment to Playbook.

Congressional negotiators announced late Tuesday they had reached agreement on a “framework” for FY2023 spending, clearing the way for passage of an omnibus appropriations package before Christmas. Appropriators are not expected to reveal detailed top-line spending levels until a bill is written and filed, but negotiators had largely settled on a $858 billion defense budget while haggling over the nondefense number. The parties had been roughly $26 billion apart, with Republicans refusing to exceed the $1.65 trillion in total discretionary spending in President Joe Biden's budget request. And more than eight years ago, President Barack Obama stood before dozens of African leaders and made promises at the opening session for the U.S.-Africa Leaders Summit, the first of its kind. The summit, it was hoped, would be a jumping-off point for stronger ties between the United States and the continent. Fast-forward eight years later: Biden is hosting a sequel, and he is likely to give very similar remarks. But the situation on the continent has only grown more dire, with global crises such as climate change, Covid-19 and the fallout from Russia's invasion of Ukraine all hitting the continent especially hard. And after four years of Donald Trump at best neglecting and at worst denigrating the continent, this summit is something of a Hail Mary pass to improve relations.

Today's House Financial Services Committee hearing on the collapse of the FTX cryptocurrency exchange will go on as scheduled without its star witness: Former CEO Sam Bankman-Fried, who was arrested in the Bahamas on Monday at the behest of U.S. prosecutors who have secured indictments on a range of fraud charges. National political correspondent Ben Schreckinger stops by to share to what to expect. Panel chair Maxine Waters said in a statement Monday night she still wants to hear from Bankman-Fried, saying “the American public deserves to hear directly … about the actions that've harmed over one million people, and wiped out the hard-earned life savings of so many.” Current FTX CEO John Ray III, a cleanup expert known for his work at Enron after its 2002 collapse, will testify as planned. “The public has been waiting eagerly to get these answers under oath before Congress, and the timing of this arrest denies the public this opportunity,” Waters added. “While I am disappointed that we will not be able to hear from Mr. Bankman-Fried tomorrow, we remain committed to getting to the bottom of what happened.” More from NYT And House Appropriations Chair Rosa DeLauro is the biggest remaining obstacle to a huge government spending compromise that congressional leaders are circling, Caitlin Emma, Sarah Ferris and Burgess Everett report. Time is running short, but DeLauro said she's “optimistic we can get to yes.” The Senate appropriations leaders have closed the $26 billion gap between Democrats' and Republicans' proposals, but “they've so far been unable to win DeLauro's buy-in.” — Meanwhile, Congress has to pass a stopgap funding bill this week to avoid a shutdown and buy more time to negotiate the long-term deal.
