Pinterest's Post-IPO Surge Passes 50% Ahead of Earnings Test

The social-media company is up more than 50% since its IPO, making it a standout at a time when other high-profile launches -- notably the ride-sharing companies Lyft Inc. and Uber Technologies Inc. -- have struggled.

The following series of tweets by @HoarseWisperer is an incredibly good examination of how people with narcissistic personality disorder (NPD) control those who work for them. I am sure many of us have witnessed similar behaviours in toxic workplaces. Naming and understanding these behaviours can help us deal with them. I have expanded some abbreviations and highlighted what I think is the key insight. I worked for a severe narcissist for a while. I just realize I’ve never written specifically...

Foxconn's inconsistent, chaotic behavior in Wisconsin looks awfully grifty

Foxconn gave Wisconsin hard-line GOP governor Scott Walker and Donald Trump a great story to tell about the triumph of their ideology: that with enough corporate welfare, high-tech manufacturing jobs could come back to America, in the form of an LCD factory in Wisconsin that would employ 13,000 people.

‘Stan and Ollie’ Review: Steve Coogan and John C. Reilly Resurrect Laurel and Hardy for a Melancholy Send-Off

Baird’s melancholy Stan and Ollie tracks the waning days of the great stage and screen comic duo Laurel and Hardy. Avoiding tedious biopic tropes that focus on how well-known people rose to fame, Stan and Ollie is instead more interested in endings. It’s a film about saying goodbye.
