Summary List Placement European venture capitalist Mattias Ljungman hopes to capitalize on the ecosystem's growth spurt with a $60 million fund for his new firm Moonfire Ventures. Ljungman previously cofounded venture capital firm Atomico with Skype billionaire Niklas Zennstrom in 2006, and announced his departure in 2019. At Atomico, he backed Finnish gaming firm Supercell and payments firm Klarna, both multibillion-dollar companies. He now plans to focus on earlier-stage investing with Moonfire Ventures, which he has set up alongside partners Mike Arpaia, a former Facebooker; and Candice Lo, an Uber exec turned investor. Moonfire will mostly write seed checks between $1 million and $1.5 million to founders of startups working in health and wellbeing; work; gaming; leisure, and finance. The fund has already backed gaming startup LoveShark and employee management software firm Humaans. Ljungman told Insider that Moonfire hoped to outperform the competition by making use of data. This is something of a growing trend among venture capital investors, who have traditionally relied on "warm introductions" and existing networks to find new founders to back.

The NYPD has terminated its contract with the maker of a 'creepy' robot dog, following a fierce backlash over its use in policing01 May, 12:38, Business Insider • Développer
Summary List Placement After fierce backlash, the New York Police Department has ended its contract with the creator of a four-legged robotic dog, known as "Digidog." Multiple outlets, including The Guardian , reported the development on Friday. The police scrapped the $94,000 deal with its maker, Boston Dynamics, following concerns about its deployment in the city. Some observers linked its use to police funding cuts and the increased militarization of policing in general. Bill de Blasio, New York's mayor, said he was "glad the Digidog was put down." A city government spokesperson told ABC7, "it's creepy, alienating, and sends the wrong message to New Yorkers." Critics have also likened the remote-controlled robotic dogs to similar devices showcased in the dystopian Netflix series, Black Mirror. Others also note that the devices are emblematic of police dogs, which have traditionally been used to intimidate communities of color, per The Guardian . Introduced in December 2020, the purpose of the robotic dogs was to "save lives, protect people, and protect offices," according to NYPD's, Frank Digiacomo, who spoke to ABC7 .

Corn soars to 8-year high as dry global weather hits crops – while soybeans and wheat are also booming27 Apr, 15:30, Business Insider • Développer
Summary List Placement Corn prices have soared to a new eight-year high as dry weather around the world hits crops and weighs on supply, just as demand is picking up as economies reopen. Soybean and wheat prices are also trading at around 8-year highs, while traders are piling into US cheese futures in anticipation of restaurants reopening. "Grain and soft commodities remain on fire, as the immediate supply outlook continues to tighten on a combination of drought in Brazil, cold weather slowing the planting progress in the US and surging overseas demand, especially from China," Ole Hansen, head of commodity strategy at Saxo Bank, said. The price of corn for delivery in May rose 2.5% to $6.98 a bushel on Tuesday morning, according to Bloomberg data, having earlier risen to $7.20. Corn rose so sharply on Monday that the Chicago Board of Trade commodities exchange had to limit trading. Prices are up around 40% so far in 2021 to their highest level since early 2013, according to Bloomberg data.
Biden sends out IRS letter heralding stimulus checks, prompting critics to say he's acting like Trump26 Apr, 20:16, Business Insider • Développer
Summary List Placement The White House has taken a page from its predecessor and decided to use the power of the office to remind Americans, by direct mail, that it shares responsibility for giving them money. In the coming weeks, tens of millions of Americans who received the third round of stimulus checks thanks to the Democrats' American Rescue Plan will be reminded of that fact in a letter from President Joe Biden — upsetting critics who also blasted the last president for promoting himself with taxpayer money. Sent via the Internal Revenue Service, recipients of the Biden letter will be relieved to find not a request for back taxes, but a boast of promises made and promises kept. "A key part of the American Rescue Plan is direct payments of $1,400 per person for most American households," Biden wrote in the letter, obtained by Insider. "This fulfills a promise I made to you, and will help get Americans through the crisis." The letter also details other parts of the $1.9 trillion stimulus measure passed by a party-line vote in March, some of which "will help you as well," among them: "aid for small businesses, an expanded child tax credit for families, and resources to reopen schools safely." There is also an ostensibly practical purpose for the missive: reminding people that, if they have not received their stimulus checks, they can check on the status with the IRS.

Summary List Placement The Razzies , Hollywood's parody award show that honors the worst content created in the last year, has presented MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell with two awards. Lindell won Worst Actor for his role in his own self-produced film, "Absolute Proof." He has called the film a "documentary," despite the fact that it's laden with disinformation about the 2020 presidential election. The movie, two hours long, has been banned from YouTube and ran on conservative outlets that have also peddled election-related conspiracies theories such as OAN. The premise behind "Absolute Proof" is that former President Donald Trump lost the 2020 election to now-President Joe Biden because of interference from Chinese cyberattackers.

Summary List Placement A new law in Oklahoma will penalize protesters who block public roadways, while offering protections to drivers who may unwittingly hit or even kill them with a car. The bill would make obstructing the use of a public street or highway during a demonstration a misdemeanor carrying a possible sentence of a year in jail as well as a $100 to $5,000 fine. Gov. Kevin Stitt signed the legislation , which takes effect November 1, into law Wednesday. Under House Bill 1674, motorists who are "fleeing from a riot" and have "reasonable belief" they are in danger, cannot be held criminally or civilly responsible for injuring or killing demonstrators. Critics of the bill say it is meant to limit legal protests after a summer of nationwide demonstrations against police violence and racism, following the murder of George Floyd by a Minneapolis police officer. The bill's author, state Sen. Rob Standridge said in a video statement that the law sets a high standard. "It has to be unintentional, first and foremost," Standridge said, and the driver must feel they are in "imminent harm," "like people are trying to break open the windows, and trying to drag someone out of the vehicle." The legislation was introduced primarily as a response to an incident in Tulsa last May, in which a driver in a pickup truck pulling a horse trailer drove through a crowd of George Floyd protesters on a freeway, injuring three people and leaving one of them paralyzed from the waist down.
James Dyson, the billionaire famous for buying Singapore's most expensive penthouse in 2019, has moved back to the UK22 Apr, 07:33, Business Insider • Développer
Summary List Placement Billionaire James Dyson, inventor of the Dyson vacuum cleaner and a notable Singapore resident for about two years, has moved his main address back to the United Kingdom , Benjamin Stupples reported for Bloomberg, citing filings for Dyson's companies including his family office. Dyson made headlines for paying $54 million for a three-story penthouse atop Singapore's tallest building in July 2019, breaking the city-state's real-estate record. That same year, he relocated the Dyson headquarters to Singapore from the UK and opened a branch of his family office in the city-state. Estimates of Dyson's personal net worth range from around $10 billion to as high as $29 billion , with his wealth stemming from his holdings in Dyson Holdings Pte., the UK's best-selling vacuum cleaner , according to Bloomberg. It's unclear why Dyson, 73, has switched his residency back to his home country. In October 2020, he sold his Singapore penthouse at a $7 million loss, but he still reportedly owns another home in Singapore, a bungalow worth a reported 50 million Singapore dollars , or nearly $38 million.

Summary List Placement Georgia lawmaker Marjorie Taylor Greene is holding a gun giveaway, saying she will gift an AR-15 worth around $2,900 to the winner of a lucky draw. Insider saw an email sent by Greene's campaign last Saturday, which proclaimed that the giveaway would go on for two more weeks.

This is the most vicious assault on our gun rights our country has seen in decades," read the email. "The radical left isn't just coming after me. They're coming after you. They're fighting for their America Last agenda every single day to plunge America into a socialist hellhole."

"It's the same type of gun the hate-America gun-grabbers in DC would love to ban if they ever get the votes," said the sign-up page for the firearm raffle.
Pelosi says in new book that Trump's 2016 victory felt 'like a mule kicking you in the back over and over again'17 Apr, 21:16, Business Insider • Développer
Summary List Placement In 2016, then-Democratic House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi of California was looking forward to former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton's ascension to the White House. In " Madam Speaker: Nancy Pelosi and the Lessons of Power ," an upcoming book about Pelosi's life written by biographer and USA Today Washington Bureau Chief Susan Page, Pelosi described how Clinton winning the election would have secured hard-fought legislative victories, including the Affordable Care Act. Pelosi, then 76, saw herself spending time with her nine grandchildren and enjoying her retirement years. But then Donald Trump won the presidency that November, throwing Pelosi's plans into chaos. When Pelosi spoke with then-Rep. Bob Brady of Pennsylvania about Clinton's performance in the state, he was initially upbeat. But by the end of the night, he called and said the former secretary of state's path to victory in the Keystone State was no longer realistic. Clinton needed Pennsylvania's 20 electoral votes to win the presidency, and with that state gone, along with narrow losses in the longtime Democratic strongholds of Michigan and Wisconsin, the Trump era would soon begin.
