Biden Wants Clyburn’s Endorsement. Clyburn Has Yet To Budge.

Although Rep. James Clyburn (D-SC) remains mum on who he will endorse in next week’s South Carolina primary, he was willing to share his thoughts on Democratic presidential candidates during an interview on MSNBC’s “Meet The Press” Sunday morning. After arguing that former Vice President Joe Biden would win if South Carolina had an election tomorrow, Clyburn was pressed by MSNBC’s Chuck Todd about Biden believing that he’ll get his endorsement. On Tuesday night, Biden said in his post-debate r...

Here’s Why This Mitch McConnell-Linked PAC Is Funding Ads Helping a North Carolina Democrat

The Times of Bill Cunningham Delightfully Captures the Fashion Photographer’s Artistry—and His More Sensitive Side

Even those of us who used to await and savor Bill Cunningham’s street-fashion photochronicle every week in the New York Times—where his work appeared from 1978 to 2016—probably had no idea how precious, in time, those photographs would come to be. Cunningham had two beats: society parties and, better yet, the polychrome cavalcade of fashion as seen on the streets of Paris and, most frequently, New York. His “On the Street” column, which featured candid pictures of individuals arranged into ...

Inside a $1 million fixer-upper listing for sale across the bay from San Francisco that might actually turn out to be a bargain

A century-old dilapidated home atop a 6,450 square-foot lot in Oakland — a city just east across the bay from San Francisco — is for sale for $1 million. "Fixer-uppers" selling for millions isn't new in the Bay Area, but this listing is more of a bargain since it includes city-approved plans to build five units. All the buyer has to do is purchase building permits.  The property sits in West Oakland, near a train station that is merely one stop away from San Francisco. In a region with a housi...

At a Davos panel, Bill Ford, the CEO of General Atlantic, said he's seen where SoftBank has gone wrong in investments that the two companies did together.  Ford said SoftBank has pushed companies to expand globally before they're ready and they haven't focused on getting unit economics working.  Stacey Cunningham, the president of the New York Stock Exchange, also said private investors shouldn't use a valuation from "one high-profile investor."

Uncalled hit on Josh Allen could have set up a game-winning field goal for Bills

Although it hasn't generated a lot of discussion over wild card weekend, a big hit that Texans linebacker Zach Cunningham put on Bills quarterback Josh Allen on Saturday could have put the Bills in range for a game-winning field goal in overtime. The Texans had already had a possession and punted, which means the Bills just needed a field goal to win. Allen ran the ball and was drilled by Cunningham at the Texans' 42-yard line.

The former CFO for Salesforce and Pandora has some advice for startups avoiding the public markets: 'Go out sooner rather than later'

Steve Cumberland, who served as CFO at Salesforce when the company went public in 2004, said companies would benefit from interacting with a wider range of investors, and encouraged startups to go public "sooner rather than later." Companies are doing a "disservice" by allowing only elite investors — such as venture capitalists, hedge funds, and private equity — to invest in them when they are growing the fastest and their valuations are increasing the most, Cumberland said at an industry conf...
