Little Caesars debuts vegan sausage

Vegetarians have finally pushed Little Caesars past its tipping point. After years of clamoring for better vegetarian and vegan pizza options, Little Caesars is now offering a plant-based sausage, or impossible meat, made by California-based Impossible Foods. This is the first time a national pizza chain has offered a vegan meat substitute.

Former FDA chief Scott Gottlieb has rejoined the venture world — but he hasn’t forgotten Juul

Scott Gottlieb, the former Food and Drug Administration chief, became known during his tenure for his efforts to regulate the tobacco and e-cigarette industries — and for his particular focus on Juul, the fast-growing e-cigarette company that Gottlieb squarely blames for creating a “youth epidemic” of e-cigarette use by teenagers. Indeed, when he announced that he would be stepping down from his post in early March, it seemed Gottlieb had dealt the tobacco industry a winning hand. There was e...

Big Tech: "If the USA enforces antitrust laws against us, it means China will win!"

Mark Zuckerberg offered to let Chinese premier Xi Jinping name his firstborn (seriously), Apple purged the Chinese App Store of privacy tools at the request of the politburo; Google secretly built a censoring search-engine for use in China, but America's Big Tech companies are sounding the alarm that they will no longer be able to promote America's global dominance if any of the US Big Tech breakup plans are executed. Which is hilarious, because breaking up monopolies makes industries stron...

These 2 stark charts show why Huawei's attempt to build a replacement for Android will fail

Huawei says it is working on its own mobile and laptop operating system in the event it can't continue using Google's Android for its phones, or Microsoft's Windows for its laptops. It's fighting talk, but Huawei's alternative operating system will almost certainly fail. Bigger companies such as Samsung, Microsoft, and Amazon have tried to combat Apple and Google's dominance in mobile software and failed. Apple and Google's dominance is illustrated by stats showing how the mobile OS ecosystem ...

Huawei says its homemade operating system could be ready to replace Android by early 2020

Trump Administration Considers Banning Another Major Chinese Firm

Opinion: The White House official who stood up to Trump

The former White House counsel -- and, according to CNBC, the most cited witness in Robert Mueller's report -- Don McGahn may have heeded the President's demand that he not testify before the House Judiciary Committee, but McGahn's background and willingness to defy the President's questionable requests in the past, hints at the notion that he possesses some moral strength. However, until he speaks, we only know that he is less vulnerable than others when it comes to the President's methods. ...
