Short-handed Georgetown upsets No. 19 Butler on the road

Terrell Allen tied a career high with 22 points, including key baskets on back-to-back possessions late, and short-handed Georgetown endured on the road without its top two scorers to knock off No. Butler 73-66 on Saturday. The Hoyas (15-10, 5-7 Big East) were missing injured starters Mac McClung and Omer Yurtseven, but Allen hit the game's first shot and stayed hot to keep the visitors ahead for much of the game.

Harry's had plans to sell for $1.4 billion before the government moved to kill the deal. Some are speculating that its biggest rival could be partly responsible for the acquisition falling apart.

The acquisition of razor startup Harry's fell apart this week after a government agency sued to block the $1.4 billion sale to conglomerate Edgewell. The Federal Trade Commission argued that the buyout would have removed one of the most successful challengers in an already consolidated market. There's an argument being made that Proctor & Gamble, the razor market's champion, had a role in the deal falling apart. A source familiar with the Harry's acquisition said when Proctor & Gamble bought a...

A growing market for clean energy isn't the only driving force behind the company's success. A top executive says the company's products are the answer to power outages and could even replace gas-fired power plants on the grid. Click here for more BI Prime stories. Before SolarCity was...

Robot analysts are better than humans at picking stocks, a new study found

Robo-analysts seem to make better stock recommendations than human research analysts, according to a University of Indiana study. The study examined 76,568 reports issued by seven robo-analyst companies between 2003 and 2018. It found that portfolios based on the buy recommendations of robo-analysts outperformed those of human analysts, suggesting robo-analysts' buy recommendations are more profitable. It's not clear that investors act on robo-analysts' recommendations, however. Visit Business...

Ginsburg: Equal Rights Amendment backers should start over

Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg said Monday that those like her who support an Equal Rights Amendment to the Constitution should start over in trying to get it passed rather than counting on breathing life into the failed attempt from the 1970s. “I would like to see a new beginning," Ginsburg said during an event at Georgetown's law school in Washington. Congress sent the amendment, which guarantees men and women equal rights under the law, to the states in 1972.

Alan Dershowitz as a messenger

It is a cliche that it is often easier to slay messengers whose messages we find repugnant than to address who is sending the messages in the first place.  So it is, I think, in some very real way with Alan Dershowitz, who is the subject of much ridicule and opprobrium for his defense of Donald Trump. Don't get me wrong:  I have denounced Dershowitz's substantive arguments as "preposterous" and have signed a marvelous letter drafted by Georgetown Prof. John Mikhail demonstrating exactly why they...
