Michigan rolls past Northwestern in Howard's 'homecoming'

And his first game coaching the Wolverines (15-9, 6-7 Big Ten) in the Chicago area turned into a rather lopsided affair. Michigan took control in the first half, withstood a minor push in the second and came away with a rather easy victory. Brooks nailed four 3-pointers, including a momentum stopper after Northwestern cut a 23-point lead in the second half to 12.

Here's why business experts think Uber's 'profitability' pledge is misleading and meaningless (UBER)

Uber excited investors and analysts last week when it predicted it would hit "profitability" by the end of this year. But the company's definition of "profitability" doesn't accord with standard accounting and leaves out a whole mess of expenses. The company's preferred profitability measure — adjusted EBITDA — is problematic, because while it is improving, its outflow of actual cash is actually worsening. It wouldn't be a surprise if the company hits its "profitability" target, business exper...

Here's why Casper's disappointing IPO could spell disaster for other unicorns (CSPR)

Casper's IPO could spell bad news for other startups looking to go public this year. The company went public at a market capitalization that was less than half the $1.1 billion valuation venture investors gave it a year ago, and it raised far less money than it initial expected. Casper was likely hurt by the fact that it's losing substantial amounts of money and that it tried to portray itself as a tech firm when it really wasn't one, business experts told Business Insider. Startups that are l...

Asana just said it's doing a direct listing — here's how they work and why more companies are thinking outside the box when it comes to going public

Asana is filing to take the company public through a direct listing rather than an IPO.  Slack did the same last year, creating buzz around Wall Street and confusion outside of it for those who don't understand why the difference is significant.  A key difference: Companies with a lot of money and brand recognition can save money on bank fees via a direct listing.  Still, an IPO is the preferred option for the majority of companies, expert say.

Why Google's 'Loretta' ad won the Super Bowl

Buzzy mattress maker Casper is pitching itself as a tech company, just like WeWork did. Here why business experts are dubious. (AAPL, FIT)

Online mattress company Casper tried to pitch itself as a tech company in its recently filed initial public offering paperwork. Private investors have given it a tech-like premium, valuing it at $1.1 billion. Public investors may well have a different take on the company, especially since it acknowledged in its IPO document that a "significant" portion of its business still comes from selling mattresses. While it believes that technology products will spur its future growth, thus far, it only ...

No. 24 Illinois hangs on to beat Northwestern 75-71

As Illinois coach Brad Underwood watched Northwestern play his Illini down to the wire, he couldn't help but feel he was watching his own team from a year ago. Trent Frazier scored 16 points, including hitting four 3-pointers, and Underwood's No. 24 Illinois hung on for a 75-71 win over the Wildcats on Saturday. “Northwestern is young but, boy, are they talented,” Underwood said.

4 Ways to Deliver Genuine Authenticity

Instagram “broke us” says a recent Vox article. The social networking service has warped our “perception of reality over the past almost-decade,” motivating people to “perform” a lifestyle while simultaneously convincing those watching that the performance is real. I’m convinced “celebrity CEOs” have done the same thing to people’s perceptions of leadership. Instagram and many celebrity CEOs showcase style over substance. People eat it up—and believe it, accepting calculated authenticity as an a...

Mini Gravitational-Wave Detector Could Probe Dark Matter

A miniature gravitational wave detector under development would measure higher-frequency waves than LIGO. From a report: Within one second of the big bang, the first newborn black holes may have announced their formation with gravitational waves that stretched and squeezed the fabric of existence as they rippled outward into the expanding universe. Now researchers at Northwestern University have begun planning a tabletop-size sensor that could detect these primordial howls for the first time. Th...

A school that values diversity could result in health benefits for students of color

Students of color who attend schools with a culture that emphasizes the value of diversity -- specifically schools whose mission statements mention goals such as serving a diverse student body and appreciating diversity and cultural differences -- show better cardiovascular health than peers whose schools do not express such values, according to a new collaborative study done by researchers at Northwestern and Stanford universities. This same pattern did not emerge among white students.
