Disappointing Chinese Vaccine Results Pose Setback for Developing World

Scientists in Brazil have downgraded the efficacy of a Chinese coronavirus vaccine that they hailed as a major triumph last week, diminishing hopes for a shot that could be quickly produced and easily distributed to help the developing world. From a report: Officials at the Butantan Institute in Sao Paulo said on Tuesday that a trial conducted in Brazil showed that the CoronaVac vaccine, manufactured by the Beijing-based company Sinovac, had an efficacy rate just over 50 percent. That rate, slig...

YC-backed Blabla raises $1.5M to teach English through short videos

Short, snappy, entertaining videos have become an increasingly common way for young people to receive information. Why not learn English through TikTok-like videos too? That was what prompted Angelo Huang to launch Blabla. Originally from Taiwan, Huang relocated to Shanghai in 2019 to start Blabla after working in Silicon Valley for over a decade. A year later, Blabla was chosen as part of Y Combinator’s 2020 summer cohort. The coronavirus had begun to spread in the U.S. at the time, keeping mil...

5 restaurants in Pasadena closed for failing to comply with coronavirus rules

Pasadena restaurants were given a lifeline this week when city officials veered away from Los Angeles County’s three-week outdoor dining ban and chose, instead, to allow their restaurants to continue serving guests outside. However, with that privilege came increased responsibility to follow strict protocols for the health and safety of guests. By Saturday morning, five restaurants had been closed down for not adhering to established COVID-19 protocols, city spokeswoman Lisa Derderian said. Thos...

FOMO, YOLO and Analysis Paralysis – the role of gut feeling in VC decision making

In the past few days, I’ve been finding it hard to make an important decision. I’ve been reviewing a number of investment opportunities for us at Remagine Ventures that were super interesting, but not a straight yes/no answer. In the process of learning about the the startups in depth (the team, its market, product, competition, etc) I went through the usual process/checklist, but something, call it a gut feeling, wasn’t sitting right. I found myself swinging between FOMO and YOLO. On one ha...

Teachers are leaving schools. Will they come to startups next?

It wasn’t the lingering exhaustion that made Christine Huang, a New York public school teacher, leave the profession. Or the low pay. Or the fact that she rarely had time to spend with her kids after the school day due to workload demands. Instead, Huang left teaching after seven years because of how New York City handled the coronavirus pandemic in schools. “Honestly, I have no confidence in the city,” she says. Tensions between educators and NYC officials grew over the past few weeks, as schoo...

A hiring manager for Google and Amazon says she's wary of candidates who can't admit they're wrong — here's what she looks for instead

Amazon gets its pick of top talent, but not everyone makes the cut. AP/Mark Lennihan Nancy Wang has been a hiring manager at both Google and Amazon, two companies that get their pick of the best and brightest candidates in tech. She says the most desirable candidates — and the ones who ultimately make the cut — are naturally curious people who like solving problems and can learn as they go. Wang has also figured out how to quickly identify candidates who probably won't work out: They're...

As chip makers have reached the limits of atomic-scale circuitry and the physics of electrons, Moore's law has slowed, and some say it's over.
