Rihanna and environmental campaigner Greta Thunberg are drawing global attention to Indian farmers' protest against the government’s new agriculture laws. The pop star tweeted “Why aren’t we talking about this?! #FarmersProtest” to her 100 million followers, along with a link to an article about the suspension of internet services at protest sites around New Delhi. India’s foreign ministry later blamed “vested interests” trying to “mobilize international support against India.” Farmers are demanding the repeal of legislation they say will leave agriculture vulnerable to corporate takeovers.

When should I register for a LLC?
Hi there! I have been doing wedding photography on the side for about 5 years now. I do an average of about 5 weddings a year. I have decided that I want to do it full time because that is what I really love (not my shitty 9-5 job). When should I register for a LLC? I have booked about 7 weddings for this year. Is now a good time to do that? Or should I just stay as sole proprietor? Thanks!
Vendors and sales people that click on your Google ads to call you should reimburse you
I help a few friends with their marketing and have noticed that vendors and sales people will click on their ads to get to their websites and/or to call them. If the ads had a $3 cpc, I might not care, but some of their industries are INCREDIBLY competitive with cpc between $150-300. When it happens 5 or 10 times a month, that quickly eats up a lot of marketing budget and really pisses me off as a business owner. That's just plain laziness and a disregard for the business owner they're calling. I'm inclined to reach out to them, ask for their managers and let them know that their rep cost us $189 for his/her cold call...and probably doing the same for all the other people being called. I'm so annoyed looking at the total amount those idiots cost us last month.
The vast majority of people who contract Covid-19 still have antibodies at least six months after infection, a new study involving more than 20,000 people showed. Some 88% of participants who tested positive for a previous infection retained antibodies for six months, according to the report by UK Biobank, a major biomedical database. The number was 99% at three months. The most common symptom associated with having antibodies to Covid was a loss of sense of taste and smell.

In China’s popular online-streaming industry, people can send their favorite live performer anything from a rose worth 80 cents to an expensive space rocket. The present is just a symbol, but the money is real — and that’s what’s made Kuaishou Technology so successful. The firm, which takes a cut of the tips fans give to performers, raised $5.4 billion ahead of its Feb. 5 IPO in Hong Kong — the biggest listing since Uber Technologies in 2019. Ex-Googler Su Hua, Kuaishou’s co-founder, paired up with Cheng Yixiao to transform the app from a GIF-maker to the social-video platform. Link in bio to read more.
What does every small town need?
I’m 28 and own my own business (brewery). I’m getting married soon, and in the process of selling my house. After I sell and we buy a new one together, I’ll have some money to invest in a project. What do you think is missing from your small town (~20k people) that people would love to see? Current thought is a medical marijuana store. I want something hands-off so I can focus on running the brewery.
