3. Kelli We don’t quite know how this core group of friends met, but it’s likely that it happened in college and that Kelli (Natasha Rothwell) is the force who brought them all together. Kelli is the one person in their group who is actually secure, even when it means being a mess. She is loud and unapologetic, but is content with her work and dating life, and with being a mess when she chooses to be—even if it means faking a London accent to a romantic prospect. Kelli has been the constant voice in Issa’s ear this season, telling her to work things out with Molly. Kelli has also helped Issa with other life stuff, like getting her bills together and figuring out how to get a new apartment. We don’t see Kelli and Issa’s dynamic play out as much as that of Issa and Molly, but Kelli has proven to be more of a rock-solid friend than Tiffany and Molly. Kelli isn’t without judgment, but she’s upfront with it, it comes from a place of love, … [Read more...] about The definitive ‘Insecure’ friendship status rankings heading into the season finale

Most state governments have further relaxed lockdown norms in the current phase as well as allowing domestic air-travel to resume. Tensions between India and China and China and the US remain a concern for the markets.

Notwithstanding the near-term uncertainty, valuations are attractive on a medium-term basis. … [Read more...] about The weekly dossier: Here’s what top voices have to say about the market
No matter how it plays out, however, Trump has sparked a larger debate about the responsibilities of online publishers to moderate user content—and that debate may evolve in unpredictable ways. Congress will almost certainly take up a thorough review of Section 230—especially since both Trump and Joe Biden have called for its repeal. And while Trump embracing this issue could drive sympathetic Democrats in the opposite direction, there’s a good chance that we’re seeing the beginning of the end of an era for Silicon Valley. Even if Congress takes a few years to overturn Section 230, the specter of revoking immunity alone will encourage the Federal Trade Commission and state attorneys general to speed up their existing antitrust investigations into the major platforms. However you look at it, change is coming. … [Read more...] about Trump vs. Twitter: Is there a silver lining in the Section 230 fight?
Especially during the ongoing global health crisis and subsequent stay-at-home orders, employees are learning how to work remotely, and companies are weighing some of the costs and benefits to this new remote world. Many companies in the Bay Area have already drastically expanded their work-from-home policies, some like Facebook have banned group meetings over 50 until 2021, and Twitter has gone so far as to allow remote work for all employees indefinitely. If a new normal includes such liberal remote work policies and the limited ability to congregate, Silicon Valley may lose some of its purpose as a technology hub as teams get distributed across the country and even the world. … [Read more...] about Here’s how Silicon Valley can avoid Detroit’s fate
For example, one study found that people were willing to pay much more to reduce a pesticide risk from 5 in 10,000 to 0 in 10,000 than from 15 in 10,000 to 10 in 10,000, even though the actual reduction in risk was identical. A similar study concluded that people were more attracted to a vaccine said to entirely eliminate a 10% risk for a disease than to one that reduced the risk from 20% to 10%. And a third one found that a vaccine described as 100% effective in preventing 70% of known cases of a disease was more appealing than one that was 70% effective in preventing all cases even though both would have the same net effect. … [Read more...] about Quarantine fatigue is real: Why Americans are tiring of social distancing and handwashing
