Climate disaster turned these millennials into 'forever renters': 'Being flexible is the new American dream'

Peter Dazeley/Getty Images Our climate isn't the only thing that's changing. Some people's ideas of homeownership are, too. Climate disasters - and money constraints - are making some people into voluntary "forever renters." "The constant threat of wildfires has shifted my thoughts on what economic success looks like," graduate student Samuel Naujokas said. See more stories on Insider's business page. Whether you're a renter, homeowner, or landlord, it's common kn...

Why do some talk radio hosts get to hawk their own books on-air?

This week, you had some questions, and I have some answers: “When I started listening to talk radio in the ’80s, it was unheard of for the radio hosts to hawk their books on the air. Now they all do it to some degree. Why do the syndicators allow that? Is that part of the hosts’ compensation? And why do the affiliates put up with it?” — Judd Silver An unfortunate side-effect of the modern radio model is a singular focus on easy money. Since it takes time to develop a program, let alone a full fo...

Newsom’s office launches $1.75B affordable housing fund

22 all-star books about California baseball including the Dodgers, Angels, Padres and more

Given California’s impressive Major League Baseball legacy, it’s kind of mind-blowing to realize that, until just 63 years ago, a “western road trip” in MLB parlance meant a team making a stop in St. Louis by way of Chicago or Milwaukee.  Of course, the Dodgers and Giants transformed MLB geography forever by moving west from New York following the end of the 1957 season, their successful relocations to Los Angeles and San Francisco paving the way for MLB franchises in Anaheim, Oakland and San...

Gov. Newsom signs SB 9, curbing single-family zoning in California

In one of his first actions after surviving an election seeking to oust him from office, Gov. Gavin Newsom on Thursday essentially abolished single-family zoning in California — and green-lighted a series of bills intended to bolster the state’s housing production. By signing Senate Bill 9 into law, Newsom opened the door for the development of up to four residential units on single-family lots across California. The move follows a growing push by local governments to allow multi-family dwelling...

Hispanic Heritage Month: What it means to be here today

Today we kick off Hispanic Heritage Month, a month-long exploration of the Latino experience in the United States.

My parents immigrated to the United States from Huejotitan, Jalisco, to San José, California, where I was born.

Index Ventures launches web-app to help founders calculate employee stock options

The ability to offer stock options is utterly essential to startups.

However, it’s a complex business developing a competitive stock option plan. Luckily, London-based VC Index Ventures today launches both a handy web app to calculate all this, plus new research into how startups are compensating their key hires across Europe and the US. Op...

Spy – “Exceptional American”

Last year, because of the pandemic, it became possible for new punk bands to make a name for themselves without ever once playing a show. This would’ve been unthinkable at any other point in history, but it’s what happened with the Bay Area hardcore punk band Spy. In July of 2020, Spy released Service Weapon, a debut EP that blasted through four songs in seven minutes. On that EP, Spy sounded raw and scuzzy and beautifully ugly, and the world took notice. At this point, Spy have played a few sho...
