I just wanted to say that my 60 year old dad now delivers food in his car because 2 of his business partners, who were also his lifelong friends, stole a total of 500k from the business and ran away. Just wanted to remind you be careful of the people you work with.
He now hates himself for trusting them and never wants to do business again after doing it his whole life.

Thoughts on BB?
It looks like it is building a strong foundation and getting its house in order. Recent collaboration with AWS sounds promising too. I’m considering taking a position soon but wanted to hear everyone’s thoughts on BB as a business and whether you’d recommend going in?

The Trump Organization’s golf empire has thrived during the COVID-19 pandemic as Tiger Woods wannabes and weekend hackers flocked to the nation’s fairways. The socially distant nature of golf drove a 12% annual increase to more than 50 million rounds played in the United States last year, the second-highest total on record behind only 1997, when Tiger Woods took the sport by storm. The renewed interest in golf was a boon to Trump properties, which also saw a surge in new members. A membership at a Trump club can cost $250,000 before annual dues.

As the curtain falls on Donald Trump’s presidency, a question: What next for the family business? On first glance, things don't look good. Trump entered office worth $3 billion. Despite soaring stock prices and his own tax cuts, he leaves $500 million poorer, according to the Bloomberg Billionaires Index. His buildings are saddled with debt, and refinancing means finding lenders willing to work with history's only twice-impeached ex-president. New York City, the heart of his empire, wants nothing to do with him. Even so, associates past and present are bullish about a comeback. Some see opportunities overseas, a streaming video service or Trump returning to publishing. Tap the link in bio for more. 📷: Donald Trump stands on the ice of Wollman Rink in Central Park in 1986.

When the coronavirus pandemic forced Tokyo to delay the Summer Olympics and Paralympics to July 2021, organizers kept the Tokyo 2020 name, saying they wanted the event to be seen as a "light at the end of the tunnel." Instead a fresh surge in Covid-19 cases in many countries, including Japan, has raised questions about whether it's safe to hold the games, even as the world races to vaccinate people against the disease. If the games do go ahead, organizers will have to tackle the difficult issue of whether to allow spectators and, if so, how many. Link in bio for more. 📷: Carl Court/Getty Images
Too many of us have worked for a boss who routinely belittles and chastises us. If you work for one of these bosses, or if you oversee a manager who indulges in this kind of toxic behavior, what should you do when they try to make nice after an abusive episode? It's important to remember that, even when this type of boss appears genuinely repentant after a tirade, they usually have ulterior, self-interested motives. By giving them a pass, you'll only reinforce the cycle of mistreatment. Research shows that there is little organizational leaders can actually do to break this cycle, other than implementing zero-tolerance policies for toxic behavior. So, whether you're supervising an abusive boss or reporting to one: it's time to shift your expectations, stop forgiving, and make it clear that their behavior is unacceptable. — Adapted from "Stop Making Excuses for Toxic Bosses," by Shawn McClean et al.

The cost of shipping goods from China to Europe has more than quadrupled in the past eight weeks. How much is that in dollar terms, exactly? A 40-foot container from Asia to northern Europe has increased from about $2,000 in November to more than $9,000. ‘It’s a bottleneck problem … These rates are being driven by customers fighting over a limited resource — containers,’ Lars Jensen at consultancy SeaIntelligence said. Thousands of empty containers were left stranded in Europe and the US in the first half of 2020 when shipping lines cancelled hundreds of trips as coronavirus lockdowns caused a sudden slowdown in global trade. When western demand for Asian-made goods rebounded in the second half of the year, competition among shippers for available containers sent freight rates soaring.
