What is the Arctic Oscillation?

The Arctic Oscillation is an atmospheric phenomenon that can govern weather and climate patterns across mid- and high-latitude areas not only in North America but across Europe and Asia in the Northern Hemisphere, and it is especially pronounced during winter. The AO is a measurement of the air pressure closer to the surface and can be in sync or couple with the polar vortex, which is measured higher up in the atmosphere. When the air pressure is low over the pole and higher over the middle l...

Exploring the Legacy of Former Disney CEO Bob Iger and How the Company Changed Under His Watch

Robert Iger served as the CEO of the Walt Disney Company for just under 15 years. It’s hard to emphasize exactly how massive an impact Iger made in his tenure at Disney, one which concluded quite abruptly on Tuesday, when he announced   that he would immediately transition into a new role as executive chairman before stepping down permanently in 2021. An air of mystery surrounded the announcement, because while Iger’s contract was up at the end of next year, there was little expectation that...

What Are the Oldest Companies in the World?

When entrepreneurs start a business, their goal is for it to keep running forever. With that in mind, have you ever wondered about the oldest company in the world? A new and incredible infographic (with some great graphics) from thoroughly answers that question. If you say the oldest company is 100, 200, 500, or even 1,000 years old, you would still be short by another 400+ years. The Kongo Gumi construction company in Japan has been in business since 578. That is 1,428 ...

A Wall Street analyst predicts that former Salesforce co-CEO Keith Block could end up at Workday, Amazon Web Services, or Oracle (ORCL, CRM)

Salesforce co-CEO Keith Block is leaving the company, after just a year and half after ascending to the role. Analysts at RBC Capital Markets think Workday, Oracle or Amazon Web Services could be logical places for Block to end up — though they say that he's unlikely to make any such move for the next year or so. Oracle might be an unlikely choice: Salesforce CEO Marc Benioff gave Block a warm send-off — the kind of fond farewell he would be unlikely to give, were Block headed to Oracle, Sales...

USDA mushroom test strips

Foraging for mushrooms in the woods is fun and all, until you accidentally ingest a poisonous mushroom and need an emergency trip to the hospital. According to the Mycological Association, of the 10,000 different large fungi in North America, fewer than 100 are “dangerously poisonous,” but those can prove fatal to both humans and animals. To help identify toxic mushrooms, the United States Department of Agriculture’s Agricultural Research Service (ARS) has developed a portable test strip that...

Blackhawks’ 2014 Draft: The One That Sent Them Awry

The current unfortunate state of the Chicago Blackhawks has fans asking, “What went wrong?” It’s a question that has a complex answer, to say the least. While there are many different directions to point the finger at, I want to dive into something that I believe has been a big contributor up to this point: drafting. Overview Blackhawks general manager (GM) Stan Bowman has been at the helm since 2009. Like any GM, he has had his fair share of good picks and bad picks. On the good side, ...

Grenell’s Past Foreign Clients Make Him Unprecedented Choice To Lead Intel Community

Acting Director of National Intelligence Richard Grenell is many things: ambassador to Germany, right-wing provocateur, and Instagram aficionado. But what may present the biggest problem is his past as a media consultant for foreign political parties, governments, and businesses – and whether that work strayed into being a foreign agent and would have complicated his ability to receive a security clearance. Former national security officials told TPM that Grenell crossed what has traditionall...

It was always pointless to short Tesla — and that's still true, even with the stock at epic highs (TSLA)

In 2017, I argued that it was pointless to short Tesla.  Shares were then at around $400. Following a recent, epic rally that's taken Tesla to nearly $1,000 per share, the short case has returned, despite traders getting burned. But it's a still a bad idea to short Tesla.

Several years ago, when Tesla stock went on a tear and ripped through a 2014 high of about $300, I wrote a story about why shorting the company was a terrible idea. "Here's...
