The FAANMG Capex And R&D Budget Is Rapidly US Government Defense Spending
The FAANMG Capex And R&D Budget Is Rapidly US Government Defense Spending Authored by Adam Virgadamo, Morgan Stanley equity strategist Wrapping up our annual gathering this past week, three common themes across regions and sectors stood out. As 2020 unfolds, we’ll have more to say on these topics, but in the meantime, here are the broad outlines of our dialogue. Disruption : Few themes are as evergreen as identifying disruptors and the disrupted, so it was no surprise that we spent much of our day on the subject. Our ideas around the poster children for disruption – e-commerce and the retail industry – came full circle as our retail teams argued that traditional retailers need to disrupt themselves, innovating in order to reinvent their cost structures. Innovation isn’t just driving down costs, but also transforming the way businesses grow – e.g., using digital technologies to scale up, it’s taken upstart Luckin Coffee just two years to match the store count that Starbucks needed 20 years to build in China.

Entrepreneurs swear by Bullet Journals and other paper notebooks to organize their lives — here's how they use them
Digital devices and apps have largely supplanted ink and paper in day-to-day business, but the analogue approach can still play an important role for entrepreneurs and freelancers. The founders of Habit Nest were recently named Amazon's Best Small Business Owners Under 30 of 2019 for their line of self-improvement journals that are popular among entrepreneurs. Psychology researchers have found that handwritten notes lead to better conceptual understanding than typed ones, and that task-switching causes performance to suffer. Scroll down to read how a paper and pen routine could help your business, and how one reader can win a highly coveted Insider notebook. Visit BI Prime for more stories. Since joining Business Insider in September, I've spoken with dozens of entrepreneurs across a wide range of businesses about their productivity strategies. A surprising number of them independently said that their personal notebooks were a key part of their daily routine.

FTC finds that Cambridge Analytica purposefully deceived Facebook users
Early last year, Facebook was rocked by a scandal involving Cambridge Analytica, a political consulting firm that stealthily acquired personal information about Facebook users as part of a concerted effort to target voters ahead of the 2016 presidential election. The scandal catalyzed a nationwide discussion about online privacy and birthed the growing narrative that tech companies like Facebook wield too much power. Nearly two years after the scandal first made headlines, the FTC today issued its formal opinion on the matter, noting that Cambridge Analytica deceived consumers with respect to the way it collected and used the personal information it gathered from Facebook users. The FTC's press release on the matter reads in part: In its Opinion, the Commission found that Cambridge Analytica violated the FTC Act through the deceptive conduct alleged in the complaint. The Final Order prohibits Cambridge Analytica from making misrepresentations about the extent to which it protects the privacy and confidentiality of personal information, as well as its participation in the EU-U.S.

Mysterious automated calls, vanished relatives, and sinister Facebook comments: How China intimidates Uighurs who don't even live in the country
China is waging a widespread, coordinated mass crackdown on its Uighur Muslim minority. Though the brutal campaign is most active in the western Chinese region of Xinjiang, the Uighurs' homeland, many Uighurs abroad say they have also been targeted by Chinese agents. Members of the Uighur diaspora described receiving mysterious automated calls, eerie Facebook comments, and being threatened by Mandarin Chinese speakers in real life. Uighurs abroad have also discovered their relatives in Xinjiang vanished by Chinese authorities days after they spoke out for the Uighurs. Visit Business Insider's homepage for more stories. China's unprecedented oppression of Uighur Muslims goes beyond the borders of Xinjiang, the western Chinese region where most of the ethnic minority live, former residents told Business Insider. Under President Xi Jinping, China is waging a widespread counterterrorism campaign on Xinjiang, also known to Uighurs as East Turkestan. It is a paranoid move in response to a spate of ethnic riots between Uighurs and Han Chinese, the dominant ethnic group in the country, ten years ago.
