Roblox ( NYSE:RBLX ) is a platform that allows developers to create games and experiences for users to enjoy. To be clear, Roblox doesn't develop its own content. And this is why Fool analyst Sanmeet Deo likens the company to YouTube, the lucrative video-streaming platform that's comprised entirely of user-generated content. This isn't the only reason to like Roblox. In this video from Motley Fool Backstage Pass , recorded on Jan. 10 , Sanmeet lays out the many reasons he likes the company, including its positioning in the budding metaverse trend . Sanmeet Deo: [laughs] It's funny because this is one of those pandemic names that I actually found out pretty much from my kids. My full disclosure: I own it, my kids own it. I bought it for them in their portfolios, in their accounts that I set up for them. I found out about the company literally about that from them. They were using it quite a lot during the pandemic, like many kids were. It was basically like … [Read more...] about Here’s Why Roblox Is the YouTube of Gaming

Share to Twitter Share to Linkedin In 2016, most of the world had never heard of infrared saunas or the myriad health benefits they offer—but that didn’t stop Lauren Berlingeri and Katie Kaps from launching an entire business devoted to the technology. What began as an activation at New York City’s Alchemist Kitchen and a handful of pop-ups at hotels and retailers quickly grew into a flagship spa in Williamsburg and a permanent location at the 11 Howard hotel in SoHo. Now, just six years after its start, HigherDOSE has become a full-fledged wellness empire, complete with a line of products that bring the wonders of infrared sauna to customers’ own homes. But even as their brand flourished and helped fuel a growing cultural interest in the world of wellness, if only at a surface level, Berlingeri and Kaps found themselves frustrated by the dearth of knowledge and information around biohacking, the wide-ranging phenomenon of altering the environment around you … [Read more...] about HigherDOSE Cofounders Launch ‘BioHack-Hers’ YouTube Series, A Female-Led Exploration Of Biohacking

Paris Lees and Emma Watson. Image: Instagram/@emmawatson Emma Watson talked about the importance of activism in her life, the pressures entailed with turning 30, working with Meryl Streep, and the joys of being single, all during her 30-minute interview with British journalist Paris Lees. The actress got candid with Lees on British Vogue’s exclusive interview of her, as posted on the publication’s YouTube channel yesterday, Nov. 5. “I am dating, yeah,” Watson confirmed when asked about guys. “As in not one specific person, but I’m going on dates.” When Lees asked how the movie star meet people given her high-profile status, Watson jokingly said that “dating apps are not on the cards for her.” She revealed that her friends are really good at setting her up. “I never believed the whole ‘I’m happy single’ spiel,” Watson recalled of her younger self. She said it took time for her to understand that such a state is indeed possible. “It took me a long time, but I’m very happy. … [Read more...] about Emma Watson is very happy as a single woman, calls it ‘being self-partnered’
On Jan. 5, General Motors ( NYSE:GM ) was showing off its shiny new Chevy Silverado electric vehicle (EV) at CES in Las Vegas. Ironically, the price of crude oil has been hitting multiyear highs in the days that have followed. It's an interesting contrast. Profits for both EV companies and oil companies are surging. In this video from Motley Fool Backstage Pass , recorded on Jan. 6 , Fool contributor Travis Hoium explains to fellow contributor Jon Quast what's driving the high price of oil right now. And the question remains whether oil companies will increase production to increase profits or whether they'll push consumers toward EVs by allowing oil prices to remain elevated. Jon Quast: We are talking about oil prices. Travis, I think that you said that they are hitting close to a five-year high, or was it a seven-year high? Travis Hoium: One of the two. It's been a while since we've been where we are in the oil market today. If you look at the S&P … [Read more...] about Here’s Why Crude Oil Is Over $80 Per Barrel
On Oct. 18, news broke that Meta Platforms ( NASDAQ:FB ) , which was then called Facebook, planned to hire 10,000 people in the European Union to start building its version of the metaverse. Then on Oct. 28, the company went a step further by announcing its name will no longer be Facebook, but rather Meta Platforms -- an announcement that clearly signals the company's primary priority. The metaverse is a digital world where people interact and transact just like they do in the real world. And Meta isn't the only company investing in it -- many are. Fool analyst Sanmeet Deo and contributor Jon Quast tackled the subject on Motley Fool Backstage Pass in this clip recorded on Oct. 18 , talking about how patient investors might need to be when investing in this concept. Jon Quast: For our viewers, I got the name of the company now. It's Niantic. They're a private company. You can't invest in them. What is interesting about Niantic is they do have a vision for the … [Read more...] about Facebook Plans to Hire 10,000 New Workers. Time to Invest in the Metaverse?
One of the more intriguing crypto-related companies is Coinbase ( NASDAQ:COIN ) . A company that's inherently tied to crypto markets, but moves independently, could see a surge in interest from new opportunities. On the Jan. 5 episode of "The Crypto Show" on Backstage Pass, The Motley Fool's Eric Bleeker and Fool.com contributor Chris MacDonald discuss one potential catalyst for Coinbase. Eric Bleeker: "The race is on to be the App Store for crypto, a major lesson of Web 2.0 was that consumers love platforms. I don't think that's going to change for Web 3.0. Currently, there is no crypto platform that owns the customer relationship and aggregates suppliers. I predict that in 2022 many companies will race to build this platform with Coinbase in the lead as it integrates DeFi and NFTs." Now, Chris, part of why I wanted to put this in is, there is somewhat of a duality in crypto that is built on the idea of decentralization and you look at Web 3, taking that to a … [Read more...] about Could Coinbase Become the ‘App Store’ for the DeFi and NFT Space?
Share to Twitter Share to Linkedin By Bernie Wong, MHS With 2022 now well under way, employers and people teams— 90% of them at that —are expanding their efforts to support the mental health of employees. Simultaneously at the individual level, Google’s Year in Search data for 2021 showed searches for mental health are similarly at an all-time high. With growing efforts come a growing number of articles, guides, and imagery of mental health, and it’s critical that employers and media alike make intentional choices when selecting visuals. An abundance of research shows that these choices will tangibly shape the way in which we come to understand mental health, others experiencing mental health challenges, and if, when, and what kinds of support people seek: “Visuals tend to signify what is considered ‘normal’ in our culture,” says Rebecca Rom-Frank, creative insights researcher at iStock. “Our Visual GPS research reveals that mental health is now a … [Read more...] about 3 Best Practices For Accurate And Inclusive Visuals Around Workplace Mental Health Communications
