We wish you a great Tuesday! Have a look with LP-Life at what the past hours have brought - a lot of stuff. The Early Bird brings you an overview of the BEST!
Former First Lady Michelle Obama opened the traditional Democratic National Convention with her speech. In her emotional speech, she urged people to vote for Donald Trump's opposition candidate, Joe Biden, and spared no criticism of the current US president.
The successful businessman, inventor, engineer and philanthropist has once again moved up the ranking of the richest people in the world. While in July, he was still celebrating a respectable fifth place, today he has moved up to the fourth. This happened after the shares of Tesla Inc. rose 11 percent yesterday. From the beginning of the year to the present, Elon Musk has been able to increase his assets by $ 57.2 billion. Did you also almost pass out reading that?!
Conflicts of interest are a touchy topic, many a politician could tell you all about it. Canadian Minister of Finance Bill Morneau recently stood accused of one such conflict of interest. Following the scandal with the non-profit organization WE Charity, he decided to throw the towel in the ring and resign from his post. This happened after uncertainties about the financing of travel costs covered by WE Charity had surfaced. Bill Morneau claimed he recently realized that he had forgotten to pay a check of 41,000 Canadian dollars (about $ 685,000) for a humanitarian trip, when he took his family to Kenya and Ecuador, where WE Charity operates. A honest mistake, we're sure!
Oracle Corporation, a company specializing in the development of relational databases, database development and management tools, or customer relationship management systems, cooperates with US venture capital companies. Why? The company intends to take over the popular Tik Tok! More specifically, they are sharpening their talons for the acquisition of the company in the USA, Canada, Australia and New Zealand. However, negotiations are currently underway on the part of Microsoft as well, so we have yet to see who wins the race! Oracle doesn't focus on social media, so it's not entirely clear why they're aiming for Tik Tok. One possible option is the company's interest in using customer data collected by TikTok to improve their marketing tools.
Three top producers, Ed Glavin, Kevin Leman and co-founder Jonathan Norman, left the Ellen DeGeneres show after several employees had complained about ill-treatment, a toxic workplace and discrimination last month. What will happen with the show now? Will it shake to its foundations? The remaining three producers, Andy Lassner, Mary Connelly and Derek Westervelt, are set to ensure that this doesn't happen and that no similar scandal occurs in the future. Ellen DeGeneres herself apologized to more than 200 employees through a video call.
"We apologize, but you're not getting more than three dumpligs today, four would be too much..." Hearing this utterance from the staff of a restaurant would probably make the smile freeze on your lips. And now imagine that this is not science fiction, but reality! Yes, such things do happen, specifically in southern China. The popular Chuiyan Fried Beef chain in Changsha was asking their guests to weigh in and provide basic information before entering in order to prepare a menu tailored to their BMI index. However, they have already apologized for their actions. Thanks God!
