AI-powered Jerry raises $28M to help you save money on car insurance

When Art Agrawal was growing up in India, a car ride was a rare treat, and car ownership was a dream. When he moved to the U.S. and bought his first car, he was shocked by how much it cost and how difficult it was to maintain a car. In 2012, he co-founded a company called YourMechanic (and won TechCrunch’s Disrupt that year) that provides on-demand automotive mobile maintenance and repair services. Over the years, the challenge of helping consumers more easily find car insurance was in th...

The Geek in Review Ep. 117 – Molly Huie on Bloomberg Law’s New DEI Framework

To modify the quote from Field of Dreams, “ask for it, and they will come” applies to this week’s show as we mentioned the Bloomberg Law Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) Framework survey a few weeks ago and suggested that they come on the show and talk more about it. Molly Huie from Bloomberg Law is running the survey and joins us this week to talk about what the mission of the survey is, and how it differs and supplements other surveys and certifications currently in the industry.

UCLA’s defense returns experience and leadership

Familiarity is key for UCLA’s defense in 2021. When Chip Kelly paired Jerry Azzinaro with Brian Norwood to run the defense, the Bruins took a step forward during a pandemic-shortened 2020 season. The defensive unit returns leadership and experience while losing just one defensive starter, defensive linemen Osa Odighizuwa, to the NFL. Azzinaro was brought back to be the Bruins’ defensive coordinator for a fourth season, after his contract was renewed during the offseason. Norwood is back for a se...

Jerry Neuheisel adds a QB’s perspective to UCLA’s receiving room

Jerry Neuheisel’s football career has followed a path similar to his father Rick’s, with both starting their college careers playing quarterback for UCLA. Jerry is now taking the next step in his career at UCLA after Coach Chip Kelly promoted him to wide receivers coach in January. “Jerry has worked here since he was a graduate assistant but he was more than a grad assistant for us,” Kelly said. “He was always like a full-time coach for us because of his knowledge and work ethic.” It is the same...

‘Demon Slayer’ Pulled a Fatality on ‘Mortal Kombat’ at the Box Office

Looks like Mortal Kombat suffered a fatality at the box office (get it, because that’s a thing they say in the games?). The latest attempt to turn the video game franchise into a film was number one at the box office the last time we spoke of these things, but in the week since, it’s fallen to number two while the anime Demon Slayer: Mugen Train – which had previously been in second place – climbed to number one. But in both cases, the two top films lost 70% of their audiences, which isn’t a gr...

Ted Lasso Believes in You

Catherynne M. Valente has written an absolutely fantastic review of Ted Lasso that gets to the heart of why so many people love the show so much. I will quote from it at length: Ted Lasso is like if Mr. Rogers, Bob Ross, Coach Taylor, Leslie Knope, and David Tennant’s Doctor all got together and had a big strange baby. It is a completely formulaic premise that turns around and refuses to follow the formula. It’s wholesome without being boring, kind without being trite, smart without being pedan...

As UCLA held its second day of spring camp Monday all three were making adjustments to new roles.

Japan’s ‘Demon Slayer’ Topped the Opening Weekend of ‘Raya and the Last Dragon’ at the US Box Office

It’s no secret that the box office hasn’t been all that thrilling over the past year thanks to the coronavirus pandemic. But now that theaters are starting to open up more and vaccinated audiences are returning to the big screen, business is starting to pick back up. That’s paved the way for a recent animated import from Japan to top the opening weekend of one of Disney’s big animated movies and earn one of the biggest anime openings of all time.

REVIEW: Ben & Jerry’s The Tonight Dough Chunks

Full disclosure: This review will be partially about Ben & Jerry’s The Tonight Dough Chunks, but mostly a new product pitch to the folks at Ben & Jerry’s.

Entrepreneurship In Latin America

It is a little known part of my career, but for a brief period from 1997 to 2001, I was part of a small group of investors who helped to create a startup ecosystem in Latin America. It all started with a company called StarMedia which created a Yahoo-like “portal” for Latin America. My partner Jerry Colonna and I met StarMedia in early 1997 and we brought it to our partners at Chase Capital Partners because we wanted to lead a Series A investment in it. In that Chase Capital Partners meeting...

Ben & Jerry’s Latest Pints Top Off Their Ice Creams With (Tasty) Evil

Ben & Jerry’s has found a new way to make ice cream pints more devious. It’s their new “Topped” version. The topping in question is a decently thick layer of chocolate ganache and “caramel cups” (think tiny Reese’s but with caramel instead of peanut butter). In the case of both of these new flavors I’m talking about here, the worst part is that there’s only a top layer to that goodness. It’s delicious and I found myself wanting to mine the ice cream towards the bottom and ration out the...
