    frontier

    • The third season of Netflix's Canadian drama series, "Frontier," starring Jason Momoa, debuted on Friday.
    • Netflix acquired the global rights to the series in 2016.
    • It was originally commissioned as Discovery Canada's first original scripted series.

    A significant aspect of Netflix's strategy is acquiring TV shows outside of the US and introducing them to a worldwide audience. Some prime examples are British series "Bodyguard" and "The End of the F---ing World," which debuted on the streaming giant this year outside of the UK.

    But it's not only British shows that Netflix is investing in. Netflix acquired the exclusive global rights to Canada's period drama, "Frontier," in 2016, according to Deadline. The show stars "Aquaman" and "Game of Thrones" actor Jason Momoa as half-Irish, half-Native American violent fur trader Declan Harp.

    The six-episode third season dropped on the platform Friday. Netflix describes the series like this: "In 18th-century North America, ruthless trappers and entrepreneurs fight to wrest control of the fur trade from the mighty Hudson's Bay Company."

    "Frontier" was commissioned as Discovery Canada's first scripted TV series in 2016. It debuted on the network, then, before being streamed outside of Canada by Netflix, according to Deadline. The third season will air on Discovery Canada in December.

    The strategy benefits both Netflix and the series' original home, as Netflix adds more subscribers and the show gains a bigger audience. The strategy has benefited other series like British "The Last Kingdom"— a Viking drama which also premiered its third season this week and has become a global hit.

    Dedric Lawson

    • In the second top-five matchup of the week, the No. 2 Kansas Jayhawks held off the fifth-ranked Tennessee Volunteers through overtime to clinch the NIT Season Tip-Off championship in New York.
    • Memphis transfer and AP preseason All-America team selection Dedric Lawson took over for Kansas in overtime, scoring eight of the Jayhawks' 18 points in the final five minutes of play.
    • Lawson soared for two Earth-shaking dunks in that stretch to send Kansas fans at the Barclays Center into a frenzy and seal the Jayhawks' second win over a top-10 ranked opponent this season.


    The second top-five college basketball matchup this week proved to be a thriller until the end, and it took the heroics of an AP preseason All-America team selection to get the job done in overtime.

    Newly-minted Kansas Jayhawk Dedric Lawson erupted for 24 points, 13 rebounds, and five assists to lead the Jayhawks to a thrilling 87-81 overtime victory against Grant Williams and the Tennessee Volunteers. 

    Lawson — who transferred from Memphis to head coach Bill Self's program alongside his brother this past offseason — poured in eight of his team's 18 points during the overtime period. He also soared for two Earth-shaking dunks that sent Kansas fans at the Barclays Center into a frenzy and sealed the NIT Season Tip-Off championship for the Jayhawks.

    "I wanted to dunk," Lawson said postgame. "I was trying to get some movement and trying to seal the deal. I just wanted to score really."

    The Memphis, Tennessee native opened up scoring during overtime with a jump hook in the paint that was beautiful enough to impress his Hall of Fame head coach.

    "The jump hook he made was a big time jump hook in the middle of the lane," Self said. "I thought he played great."

    Later in the overtime period, Lagerald Vick — who contributed 15 points and a crucial 8-0 run late in the second half — delivered a perfect lob pass to Lawson, who rose above the rim and slammed it home to extend Kansas' lead to five and shift the momentum firmly in the Jayhawks' favor.


    Another two minutes later, the elder Lawson once again stole the show. After his brother, K.J., stripped the ball from Tennessee's Jordan Bowden, Lawson ran the length of the floor and Vick connected with him in stride. He took two steps through the lane and took off for the one-handed slam that ultimately secured Kansas' second win over a top-10 ranked opponent on the season.

    "In overtime, I just wanted to be aggressive," Lawson said. "I came out and knew that the score was 0-0 and it was a new game. I wanted to win. I wanted to win very badly and I tried to do everything I could to seal the deal."

    yuengling sisters

    • Four sisters run Yuengling, the oldest family-run brewery in America producing more than 2 million barrels of beer annually.
    • Each sister brings a different skill set to the company, which helps keep the brewery flowing.
    • If the sisters have a new idea, they run it by their father, Dick Yuengling, before moving forward.

    Yuengling is the oldest family-run brewery in America producing more than 2 million barrels of beer annually. Four sisters, Jen, Wendy, Debbie, and Sheryl Yuengling, were asked by their father if they wanted to join the family business and help run the brewery in the late 1990s.

    Jen and Wendy recently sat down for an interview for Business Insider's podcast "This Is Success." Wendy handles marketing and Jen runs operations at the brewery but studied psychology in college, which she said helps the family dynamic.

    "I think we make it work very well because we each have different skill sets and we're each responsible for different roles and we play different roles," Jen said.

    At first, patriarch Dick Yuengling ran the company as any entrepreneur would and made several decisions without consulting his daughters. But over time, that changed and the family dynamic grew stronger each year the sisters worked at the brewery.

    Read more: 2 of the 4 sisters behind Yuengling, America's largest independent brewery, explain how they're making the 190-year-old family beer business their own

    "Over the last few years, as we've all sort of stepped into leadership roles and are more involved, I think we are taking more pressure off of our dad and taking off of his plate and starting to run with certain things in the business, and we each drive certain parts of the company," Wendy said.

    Today, if the sisters have a new idea for the company, they always run it by their 75-year-old father.

    "And he's been quintessential entrepreneur and he's on the down slope of that, which is to be expected, but the fact that he's very supportive of some of these newer initiatives that we've set about — that saw the Golden Pilsner," Jen said.

    Yuengling recently came out with the Golden Pilsner, the first new Yuengling product in 17 years. Wendy said there are moments where they have to persuade their father to move forward on projects.

    "It probably happens once a week, but I think if we truly believe it's the right thing for the company and it's the right thing for the brand's long term, we continue to make a case and he eventually does come around on most things," Wendy said.

    Since 1985, Dick has been running the brewery and working out of the Yuengling offices.

    "He's there every day, twice a day, but I think it means something to him that we're there alongside him and we're working long hours aside him, and I think there's some comfort seeing that we're taking on more responsibility, and I think he's got confidence in what we're doing," Wendy said.

    Jen added: "In the most recent years, too, and maybe not so much as a company overall but personally, and where we've grown and really how he's grown too with the company, and allowing us to assume these leadership roles."

    Black Friday sales hit record highs this year. But, that doesn't mean it was the biggest online shopping day in the world this November. 

    Shoppers spent $2.4 billion online on Wednesday, a whopping 31.8% increase from 2017, according to Adobe Analytics data. Thanksgiving Day online sales hit $3.7 billion, 28% growth year over year. Black Friday was similarly impressive, with $4.1 billion in online sales as of 8 p.m. ET, an increase of 23.3%.

    However, there was another major shopping day earlier in November. On Singles Day — November 11 — Alibaba sales reached $30.8 billion online globally, far exceeding Black Friday figures. 

    Most of those sales were in China. However, US shopping on Singles Day grew 29.1% compared to 2017, according to Adobe data. 

    "If you look at the average Ali Express consumer in the US, they're middle class folks just like in China," Alibaba president Michael Evans told Business Insider on Singles Day in Shanghai. 

    American shoppers spent $1.82 billion online on Singles Day — less, even, than on the Wednesday before Thanksgiving. However, the impact of Singles Day in the US is quietly and swiftly growing. 

    alibaba gala

    Perhaps the biggest effect Singles Day in having on the US is American companies learning to take a page out of Alibaba's handbook. While the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade is the closest thing to Alibaba's 11/11 kickoff gala, companies across the board are imitating Alibaba in stretching Black Friday to be longer and start earlier. 

    "US retailers are looking closely at the success of Alibaba's 'Singles' Day' shopping extravaganza to inform next year’s Holiday shopping season, particularly the concept of its 'pre-sale' period," Accenture Strategy's Frank Layo said in a comment on Friday morning.

    "It allows shoppers to preview merchandise and deals in the run up to the main event and secure goods in their shopping carts, usually for a small deposit," Layo continued. "This helps to improve conversion rates and gives retailers granular visibility into inventory requirements." 

    Next year, Alibaba may poach shoppers more directly. While the trade war has helped dump some cold water on Alibaba's move into the US, executives have hinted that they want Singles Day to become more of a global event.

    "Everywhere I go, which is pretty much everywhere in the world, there are not very many people who do not know about 11/11," Evans told Business Insider.

    "Many people ask the question — how can we participate next year? People are very interested, I think partly because they've heard of Black Friday and Cyber Monday and they think that's quite big."

    He continued: "They've heard of Amazon Prime Day. But, we sold as much in five minutes as Amazon sold in an entire Prime Day."

    This is a preview of a research report from Business Insider Intelligence, Business Insider's premium research service. To learn more about Business Insider Intelligence, click here.

    As headlines like "Amazon Is Secretly Becoming a Bank" and "Google Wants to Be a Bank Now" increasingly crop up in the news, tech giants are coming into the spotlight as the next potential payments disruptors.

    Millennials Trust Tech Payments

    And with these firms' broad reach and hefty resources, the possibility that they'll descend on financial services is a hard narrative to shy away from. To mitigate potential losses under this scenario, traditional players will have to grasp not only the level of the threat, but also which segments of the financial industry are most at risk of disruption.

    Google, Apple, Facebook, Amazon, and Microsoft, collectively known as GAFAM, are already active investors in the payments industry, and they're slowly encroaching on legacy providers' core offerings. Each of these five companies has introduced features and offerings that have the potential to disrupt specific parts of the banking system. And we expect a plethora of additional offerings to hit the market as these companies look to build out their ecosystems.

    However, it remains unlikely that any of these firms will become full-blown banks or entirely upend incumbents, due to regulatory barriers and the entrenched positions of big banks. Moreover, consumers still trust traditional firms first and foremost with their financial data. That means these companies are far more likely to rattle the cages of incumbents than they are to cause their total demise. That said, these companies have a proven capacity to revolutionize industries, making their entry into payments critical to watch for legacy players, especially as their moves demonstrate an intent to be a disruptive force in the industry.

    In this report, Business Insider Intelligence analyzes the current impact GAFAM is having on the financial services industry, and the strengths and weaknesses of each firm's position in payments. We also discuss the barriers these companies face as they push deeper into financial services, as well as which aspects of a bank’s core business provide the biggest opportunities for the new players. Lastly, we assess these companies' future potential in payments and the broader financial services industry, and examine ways incumbents can manage the threat.

    Here are some of the key takeaways: 

    • GAFAM has been actively encroaching on the payments space. This includes offering mobile wallets for in-store and online payments, peer-to-peer money transfer services, and even loans for small- and medium-sized businesses. 
    • These firms' broad reach and hefty resources have put them in a strong position to take on legacy players. GAFAM has products that have been adopted by millions of users, and in some cases, billions. They also have access to a tremendous amount of capital — Apple, Microsoft, and Google had over $400 billion combined in cash at the end of 2016.
    • However, these firms have to overcome major barriers to compete against legacy players, which includes regulation and trust. For example, 60% of respondents to a Business Insider Intelligence survey stated that they trust their bank most to provide them financial services.
    •  As a result of these barriers, it's more likely that GAFAM will make a dent in very specific segments of the financial services industry rather than completely disrupt it. 

    In full, the report:

    • Explains what GAFAM's done to place themselves in a position to be the next potential payments disruptors.
    • Breaks down the strengths and weaknesses of each company as it relates to their ability to build out an extensive financial ecosystem. 
    • Looks at the potential barriers that could limit GAFAM's ability to capture a significant share of the payments industry from traditional players. 
    • Identifies what strategies legacy players will have to deploy to mitigate the threat by these tech giants.

    Bill Shine

    • White House communications chief Bill Shine will reportedly receive approximately $7 million from 21st Century Fox, the parent company of Fox News, while working at the White House.
    • The payment is reportedly part of a severance package attached to Shine's ouster from Fox News following revelations that he allegedly mishandled of several sexual misconduct claims against Fox employees.
    • Shine is one of several White House staffers who have been scrutinized for potential conflicts of interest.

    Bill Shine, the White House Deputy Chief of Staff for Communications, will receive approximately $7 million from Fox News' parent company, 21st Century Fox, through 2019, according to a financial disclosure reviewed by CNBC Friday.

    The sum, which comes on top of $8.4 million already paid to Shine, is reportedly part of the severance package he received after being ousted from the conservative media giant for his botched handling of several sexual misconduct allegations at the company. Among other things, Shine has been accused of covering up allegations against late Fox News Chairman Roger Ailes.

    Two months after Shine left Fox News, he was hired by the White House to replace Hope Hicks in the top communications role, which has been in flux throughout President Donald Trump's tenure.

    Compared to other top staff forced to leave Fox News, Shine's payout was relatively small. Bill O'Reilly was paid $25 million and Ailes was reportedly paid $40 million when they left the network. Trump has repeatedly hired former Fox News staff and contributors, but Shine appears to be the first top White House official to remain on the payroll of a major media company while employed by the government.

    The White House did not immediately respond to a request for comment, and Fox declined to comment on the record.

    Shine isn't alone in receiving criticism for potential conflicts of interest. Top White House advisers and Trump family members Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner reported earning millions from outside business ventures while working for the president, according to The Guardian

    Michelle Arbov, Vice President of M&A, IAC

    • Michelle Arbov, age 28, is vice president of mergers and acquisitions at media company IAC.
    • She helped lead a series of high profile acquisitions, including IAC's purchase of Angie's List for over $500 million, and played a key role in scaling its HomeAdvisor business.
    • Arbov was named this year to Forbes' 30 under 30 list for finance. Business Insider recently asked her to share her best career advice for other young professionals.

    Michelle Arbov, age 28, is a rising star at IAC, a $15 billion internet conglomerate founded by media mogul Barry Diller. 

    She joined the company three years ago as the associate director on the merger and acquisition team and has been promoted rapidly.  Now, as the vice president of M&A at IAC, Arbov leads the company’s efforts in corporate development and financing. She was recently named to Forbes' 30 under 30 list for finance.

    IAC, whose holdings include widely-recognized brands such as Vimeo, Tinder, and Investopedia, is known for its aggressive acquisition strategy. Arbov has handled a slew of high-profile deals and has been instrumental in scaling IAC’s pillar business in the digital home services marketplace. 

    A notable example is her work on IAC’s $500 million purchase of home services website Angie’s List in 2017. This led to Angie’s List's merger with and IAC’s own reviews site HomeAdvisor which created ANGI Homeservices. That company went public in October 2017. 

    During her three-year stint at IAC, Arbov also led other prominent deals, including the acquisition of home improvement sites HomeStars and MyHammer, as well as ANGI’s recent purchase of household services company Handy. 

    Before her role at IAC, she worked at Goldman Sachs and hedge fund Och-Ziff Capital Management. She shared her  career advice for young professionals with Business Insider. 

    Find a company that values ambition. 

    "Join a company that aligns with you and your ambitions. Culture is a huge factor in choosing the right place to work. An example of a great culture is one that values hard work and lets you take on as much as you can if you raise your hand — as long as you deliver."

    Learn from challenges 

    “Challenges generally means you're growing and you're learning, and I think learning is a key thing to constantly strive and achieve in any job. Challenges are good in the sense that you'll learn from them. And it probably won't be a challenge in your next iteration.”

    When facing a challenge, “it’s always important to take a step back and think about what the goal is, what you are trying to achieve, and what the task at hand is.” 

    “You can have five different deals that you're trying to push forward, and it's always a challenge in terms of what should take priority. Ask questions to whoever the right people are and figure out what the priority should be. Try not to get overwhelmed ... think through it and take it day by day.”

    Have confidence 

    “Having confidence is believing in yourself. Keep your eye on the prize and continue to ask for more and do more. It's  important, especially as a female.”

    • In March, I left New York to travel around the world as Business Insider's international correspondent. In total, in my life, I've traveled to 30-plus countries and countless cities.
    • As someone who travels full-time, I rarely cook and I am constantly looking for good, healthy, and cheap food near me. But that's difficult when you are in new places you haven't explored yet.
    • My best tip for finding good, healthy, cheap food in a new place is to research the restaurant recommendation app or crowdsourced review site most used by residents of the place you are visiting. 
    • The most-used recommendation app changes from country to country and even city to city. But, if you know which one people use, you can tap into locals' knowledge instead of relying on the concierge at your hotel.

    I'm not ashamed to call myself a foodie. The term has become wildly overused, abused, and then derided in recent years, but I take it to mean someone who is genuinely interested in the world's multivarious cuisines.

    So you can imagine that when I left New York in March to become Business Insider's international correspondent  — and travel full-time — it was a dream come true.

    But then I touched down in Hong Kong and the question hit me: How am I going to know which are the good places to eat?

    Luckily, Americans aren't the only people who obsessively use smartphones. Everywhere I've been — 13 countries and counting this year — locals find restaurants in much the same way I do when I'm home in New York. They use crowd-sourced review apps like FourSquare or Yelp.

    The quality of restaurant and other small business recommendations in any place you visit depends entirely on having an active community for a particular app.

    While TripAdvisor always has plenty of reviews no matter where you travel, the community is fellow travelers, not locals. That means you are getting recommendations from another person who is exploring a place they barely know. It's the blind leading the blind.

    BestChineseFood AuthenticChina (1 of 104)

    Read More: I've visited more than 30 countries, and the best trick I've found to avoid crushing crowds is a free online tool

    Usually, there is one app that has the most active local community doing the usual: leaving tips, posting food porn, and dropping reviews for their favorite spot. It's rarely, if ever, Yelp or FourSquare.

    In China, the app to use is Dianping or Meituan. In Hong Kong, everyone uses OpenRice. Singaporeans use OpenRice and HungryGoWhere, among others (Singapore is a city of foodies, so there's a few). In Korea, MangoPlate is the way to go. In Dubai, everyone uses Zomato.

    I could go on.

    When I traveled when I was younger, the first thing I would do in a new place is ask a local their favorite restaurant. While I still do that, I always ask another question: What app do you use to find good food?

    There's always an answer. And once I have that, I feel like I have the key to the city.

    Growth in Share of Retail Site Visits

    This is a preview of a research report from BI Intelligence, Business Insider's premium research service. To learn more about BI Intelligence, click here.

    Social media is becoming increasingly influential in shoppers' purchasing decisions. In fact, the top 500 retailers earned an estimated $6.5 billion from social shopping in 2017, up 24% from 2016, according to BI Intelligence estimates.

    In addition to influencing purchase decisions, social media is a large part of the product discovery and research phase of the shopping journey. And with more and more retailers offering quick access to their sites via social media pages, and shoppable content becoming more popular, it's likely that social media will play an even larger role in e-commerce. 

    In this report, BI Intelligence examines the advantages and disadvantages of each platform, and reviews case studies of successful campaigns that helped boost conversion and increase brand awareness. Additionally, we explore how retailers can bring social aspects into their own sites and apps to capitalize on consumers' desire for social shopping experiences.

    Here are some key takeaways from the report:

    • Social media is becoming more influential in all aspects of the purchasing journey.
    • Facebook is the clear winner in social commerce, with its huge user base and wide-ranging demographics.
    • However, retailers should have a presence on every platform their target market is on. Each platform will require a different strategy for retailers to resonate with its users.
    • Retailers can also benefit from bringing social aspects in-house. They can do this by building their own in-house social networks, or by embedding social media posts into their sites.

    In full, the report: 

    • Provides an overview of the top social media platforms — Facebook, YouTube, Instagram — that retailers should be using, the demographics of each platform, as well as their individual advantages and disadvantages. 
    • Reviews tools recently developed by these platforms that help retailers create engaging content.
    • Outlines case studies and specific strategies to use on each platform.
    • Examines how retailers like Sephora, Amazon, and Poshmark are capitalizing on consumers' affinity for social shopping by creating their own in-house social networks.

    eBags Fortis Pro Spinner

    • Popular luggage store eBags just released its newest luggage, the Fortis Pro Traveler Spinner.
    • The bag is virtually indestructible, incredibly lightweight, and features integrated packing cubes and a USB charging system for your phone.
    • Until November 25, Business Insider readers can save 30% (that's $60) on the bag when they use promo code INSIDER30.

    When eBags was founded in 1998, it launched as a regular e-commerce retailer. Within a few years, however, the company realized it was in a perfect position to make its own products: eBags could take reviews of other products posted on its site and use them as market research, incorporating reader feedback into designs for a new in-house line.

    Today, eBags is one of the best destinations for luggage and travel bags of all shapes and sizes, whether school bags, daypacks, carry-ons, or suitcases. It sells products from hundreds of brands, but its own line of eBags-branded luggage stands out for its intelligent designs, smart functions, and competitive prices. The only downside, on some products, at least, is that they aren't as stylish as other brands — a trade-off that's often worth making.

    On eBags' newest piece of luggage, the brand managed to bring form, function, and price without making any compromises — even style.

    The new Fortis Pro Smart hardside spinner begins with a lightweight polycarbonate shell, which eBags describes as "unbreakable." While I didn't have time to take the bag on an actual trip before this review, the Insider Picks team decided to test this out in the office.

    While we stopped short of standing on top the closed bag, we can confirm that despite our kicks, drops, bangs, bends, beatings, and even a throw down half a flight of stairs, the bag did not break. We also skipped hitting the bag full-strength with a hammer — we didn't have a hammer handy.

    eBags also describes the bag as "hardly scuffable." This, I'm sad to say, was not quite the case. By the end of our abuse, the bag was showing unmistakable signs of scuffing — most particularly, scuffs. While we were able to wipe most of them away with a damp paper towel, there are still some scuffs and scratches left behind, so I would recommend ignoring the "hardly" and focusing on the "scuffable."

    That said, scuffs aren't a deal breaker, and I'm far more concerned about the function of my bag and the safety of its contents than I am with the uninterrupted shine of its outside. 

    In that respect, the eBags Fortis Pro is a force to behold.

    The bag unzips and opens like a standard valise, and stores clothing and contents on both sides. One half features a nifty compression strap that has two built-in packing cubes — these are perfect for storing small items like socks or undershirts. You can fill those, and then buckle the strap they rest on to hold and compress everything else in that side of the main compartment.

    eBags Fortis Pro

    There's also an interior divider on that side, which can be removed or adjusted to fit whatever you pack. The other side of the main compartment is a large open space, and can be sealed with a zippable netting.

    This is the new "smart" edition of eBags' carry-ons, and it reflects this with an integrated USB pass through cable. You can take any USB power bank, and put it in a small interior pouch near the top of the bag. Just plug in the USB cable, and you can access power through a USB port near the handle — without removing the battery.

    The bag evokes obvious comparisons to Away, the popular luggage startup.

    While the Fortis Pro is certainly similar to the smaller Away carry-on, it's a little less expensive, and has one major feature that the Away bags don't — an expansion zipper. Simply unzip it, and you can expand the Fortis bag by about an inch and a half.

    The bag is incredibly lightweight considering its size, and even when we fully loaded it, the wheels spun effortlessly, a necessity for any quality spinner bag. The telescoping handle has three positions, and the bag has a built-in TSA-approved combination lock that's easy to set — and reset.

    The eBags Fortis Pro is a solid product, and representative of the deliberation with which eBags designs its products. While the description of "hardly scuffable" is optimistic at best, I — and the Insider Picks team — remain impressed at how the polycarbonate shell withstood our pummeling and, as crucially, held its shape, even when we tried to bend and snap the shell's edges. Plus, the bag has a lifetime warranty, so if something stronger than us gets to your bag, you're covered.

    If you're looking for a new bag, or a gift to give for the holidays, the Fortis Pro is a great bet.

    Plus, until November 25, Business Insider readers can save 30% on the bag when they use promo code INSIDER30. The bag is currently available for pre-orders, and ships the second week of December.

    Click here to pre-order the eBags Fortis Pro Traveler Carry-On for $140 — you save $60 with promo code INSIDER30.

    Jerome Corsi signs copies of his books at the Book Expo America in New York, Wednesday, May 25, 2011.

    • The far-right political commentator Jerome Corsi is in plea talks with the special counsel Robert Mueller.
    • Corsi is one of the central figures in Mueller's investigation into whether members of President Donald Trump's campaign had advance knowledge of Russia's hack of the Democratic National Committee and WikiLeaks' subsequent dissemination of stolen emails.
    • Corsi is close to the longtime GOP strategist Roger Stone, and he said last week that Mueller's office told him he would be indicted for perjury.

    Jerome Corsi, a far-right conspiracy theorist and close associate of GOP strategist Roger Stone, is in talks with the special counsel Robert Mueller about a possible plea deal.

    The news comes after Corsi said last week that Mueller's office told him he would be indicted for perjury.

    "I fully anticipate that the next few days I will be indicted by Mueller for some form rather [sic] of giving false information to the special counsel ... or [however] they want to do the indictment," Corsi said on a YouTube livestream this month. "But I'm going to be criminally charged."

    Corsi was served a subpoena in August by Mueller to testify before a grand jury. Mueller was reportedly investigating whether Corsi had prior knowledge of the Hillary Clinton campaign's hacked emails — which were later delivered to and published online by the radical pro-transparency group WikiLeaks — and whether he passed those emails on to Stone.

    Stone, a former adviser to President Donald Trump's campaign, is under scrutiny by the special counsel for his connection with Julian Assange (WikiLeaks' founder) and Guccifer 2.0, a Russia-linked hacker believed to be a front for the GRU.

    Read more: Roger Stone associate Jerome Corsi says Mueller told him he will be indicted for perjury

    Corsi, formerly the Washington bureau chief of conspiracy-theory-website InfoWars, suggested Mueller had material evidence for his case.

    "When they have your emails and phone records ... they're very good at the perjury trap," Corsi told NBC producer Anna Schecter.

    roger stone

    In 2016, days before a trove of emails were leaked, Stone made several statements on Twitter that eventually attracted attention from investigators. Stone previously tweeted "it will soon [be] Podesta's time in the barrel," in reference to John Podesta, Clinton's embattled campaign manager, whose emails were breached.

    Corsi later claimed to be the inspiration behind Stone's tweets that suggested Podesta's brewing troubles. One person familiar with the situation said Mueller's team was reviewing communications with Trump's associates, in which Corsi and Stone appeared to take credit for the release of the hacked emails, according to NBC News. The source added that there has yet to be evidence of their potential involvement in the email's hack or subsequent release to the public.

    Corsi denied having prior knowledge of the emails. Stone reportedly described his alleged ties with Russia as a "left-wing conspiracy theory" and claimed Corsi did not tip him off about WikiLeaks' possession of the emails prior to its public release.

    "For the record, I have never had any communication of any kind with Julian Assange, WikiLeaks, or Guccifer 2.0, or any Russian agents of any kind, including those mythical Russian agents who the Democrats believe wanted to throw the election for Trump," Corsi reportedly wrote on InfoWars in March 2017.

    Stone, meanwhile, casts doubt on Mueller's investigation and has indicated that the special counsel does not have enough proof against him or Corsi. He pointed out that he has taken two polygraph tests and passed both. He also said his attorneys have reviewed all his written communications with the far-right commentator. And he said Corsi had been "squeezed hard" by prosecutors but "refuses to do anything but tell the truth."

    hong kong bridg 16.JPG

    After nine years of construction and controversy, China officially unveiled the world's longest sea bridge at an October ceremony in Hong Kong.

    At more than 34 miles long, the Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macau Bridge is part of a master plan to create a global science and technology hub by connecting two Chinese territories, Hong Kong and Macau (the world's largest gambling center), to nine nearby cities.

    With an economic output of $1.5 trillion, the new mega-region — known as the Greater Bay Area — is positioned to rival Silicon Valley. The plan also includes the construction of an $11 billion bullet train, which opened in September.

    The bridge is not open to public transit, so only certain vehicles — shuttles, freight cars, and private cars with permits — are allowed to cross. Pedestrians and bicyclists are prohibited.

    While some have criticized the structure as a waste of taxpayer dollars, others tout its ability to connect up to 70 million people in the region.

    Take a look at its remarkable design below.

    The $20 billion structure is 20 times as long as the Golden Gate Bridge.



    The title of world's largest sea bridge previously belonged to the Jiaozhou Bay Bridge, which stretches 26.3 miles.

    Source: BBC



    The Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macau Bridge is designed to last for more than a century, with the capacity to withstand major storms and earthquakes.

    The structure should hold up in the face of 211 mph winds. That claim was put to the test in September, when Typhoon Mangkhut swept through Hong Kong, destroying roofs, shattering windows, and toppling trees.

    quarterly global fintech fundingThis is a preview of a research report from Business Insider Intelligence, Business Insider's premium research service. To learn more about Business Insider Intelligence, click here. Current subscribers can read the report here.

    Fintech hubs — cities where startups, talent, and funding congregate — are proliferating globally in tandem with ongoing disruption in financial services. 

    These hubs are all vying to become established fintech centers in their own right, and want to contribute to the broader financial services ecosystem of the future. Their success depends on a variety of factors, including access to funding and talent, as well as the approach of relevant regulators.

    This report compiles various fintech snapshots, which together highlight the global spread of fintech, and show where governments and regulatory bodies are shaping the development of national fintech industries. Each provides an overview of the fintech industry in a particular country or state in Asia or Europe, and details what is contributing to, or hindering its further development. We also include notable fintechs in each geography, and discuss what the opportunities or challenges are for that particular domestic industry.

    Here are some of the key takeaways:

    • Most countries in Europe have made some formal attempt to foster the development of domestic fintech industries, with Germany and Ireland seeing the best results so far. France, meanwhile, got off to a slow start, but that's starting to change. 
    • The Asian fintech scene took off later than in the US or Europe, but it's seen rapid growth lately, particularly in India, China, and Singapore.
    • The increasing importance of technology-enabled products and services within the financial services ecosystem means the global fintech industry isn't going anywhere. 
    • Fintech hubs will continue to proliferate, with leaders emerging in each region.
    • The future fintech landscape will be molded by regulatory bodies — national and international — as they seek to mitigate the risks, and leverage the opportunities, presented by fintech. 

     In full, the report:

    • Explores the fintech industry in six countries or states, and identifies individual fintech hubs.
    • Highlights successful fintechs in each region.
    • Outlines the challenges and opportunities each country or state faces. 
    • Gives insight into the future of the global fintech industry.

    gifts for him, allbirds wool runners

    It's the most wonderful time of the year for anyone who enjoys exchanging gifts with their friends and family. And as someone who gets a special satisfaction from picking out the perfect gifts for everyone in her life, whether they're her coworkers, her in-laws, her dad, or her boyfriend, I'm very lucky it's essentially my job to help other people do just that.

    If you need some inspiration for what to get for him this holiday season (whether he's your brother, father, husband, son, or otherwise), the Insider Picks team has you covered with some truly excellent gift ideas. Though you can never go wrong with a new leather wallet or festive, holiday-themed socks, we've also included some more unique gifts, like a custom Xbox controller and a cookbook by Snoop Dogg (yes, really!) in our list.

    Check out all 66 gifts for him, and happy shopping!

    Popular shoe startup Allbirds came out with a new high-top sneaker this month, dubbed the Tree Toppers, but for the uninitiated (and honestly really anyone), the classic Wool Runners make an excellent gift.

    career

    Forbes recently released its 30 under 30 list for finance, highlighting a new crop of leaders shaking up Wall Street. Whether closing multibillion-dollar deals, inventing new financial technologies, or leading the future of crypto, they're already making an impact despite their young age. 

    Business Insider asked these finance superstars to share their best career advice for the young professionals. Here's what they had to say.

    Charlie Javice, 26, founder of Frank.

    Charlie Javice

    The 26-year-old University of Pennsylvania grad is trying to improve the $1.5 trillion student loan market by making the application process faster and easier. To date, the startup has helped 300,000 students receive roughly $7 billion in financial aid. Here's Javice's advice for young professionals just staring out in their careers.

    My first advice is to show up. Many people today underestimate the power of showing up. When you're in a job, you come in an hour before your boss and leave an hour after your boss. Just by being there, you're learning. Even if you don't love it. When you transfer from being a student to becoming employed, it's really hard to lose some of that freedom and work in a structured environment. So the most important thing is to show up and listen, and be there to absorb knowledge. People are investing in you and they can teach you.

    You should also always ask yourself the question “Why?” And I break it down into three types of whys. One is “Why am I the best for this job?” If you can't answer that, you should probably not be doing what you're doing. Do something that you can be amazing at and be in the top 1% of performers. Because if not, you're wasting your talent.

    The other is “Why am I different than other applicants?” And this is something that's super important, because the difference is oftentimes better than being the best of something. So if you can distinguish yourself, be different and have a different approach and understand why you are different — you can really explain your value add and understand where you're going in your career.

    Then the last one — which is really a mental health check — is “Why do I want to do this?” If you're in a position that you can invest in yourself when you're out of school, you should probably take the hit and take a little bit less salary, to have a better reason than money to pursue something.

    Erica Dorfman, 29, head of Finance & Operations at Tally Technologies.

    Erica Dorfman_bio picture

    Dorfman is in charge of strategy, liquidity and financing at Tally, which offers an automated app that helps users manage their credit card debts. Some of her responsibilities include strategic planning, liquidity management and loan servicing. Prior to Tally, she co-led the capital markets operations at SoFi.

    Dorfman has a background in fin tech, investment banking, and private equity. She started her career at JPMorgan and then moved over to BDT Capital Partners.

    The best advice I can give is that you should find a company and a team that you're excited to work for — and one that's excited to have you on the team. Once you're there, try to get as much feedback as you can. Because you really can only go so far by yourself. So, the benefit of having a great team and having a strong relationship with them is that you can get as much help as you can to develop as a professional.

    Katherine Relle, 29, is a portfolio manager in the private equity group at JPMorgan.

    Katherine A. Relle, Portfolio Manager of Morgan Stanley

    Relle is a portfolio manager in the private equity group at JPMorgan. She also chairs the firm’s mentoring program, called NextGen, which fosters networking opportunities for early business professionals. Here's her advice. 

    Set goals and review them often. Be opportunistic and flexible. If your goal isn’t going in the right direction, be flexible and look for other opportunities. Sometimes, people seem to have a one-track mind on a certain goal. If you see something that could align well or create a different take on what that goal is, then it worth exploring further.

    Look at the resources around you and take full advantage of them. For example, I see a lot of people go to large firms after they graduate from the college. They offer so many professional development opportunities, like training that's free to attend and toastmasters where people practice how to speak. Take full advantage of these opportunities and continue to learn early on in your career. 

    Kyle Samani, 28, managing partner and cofounder of Multicoin Capital.

    Kyle Samani, cofounder and managing partner at Multicoin Capital

    Kyle Samani is the co-founder and managing partner of Multicoin Capital, an Austin-based hedge fund that invests exclusively in the crypto space. The crypto fund has $75 million assets under management and is backed by investors including Andreessen Horowitz's partner Marc Andreessen, and former PayPal executive David Sacks. Prior to Multicoin Capital, Samani co-founded his first company, Pristine, which built Google Glass software for surgeons.

    Follow your passions, even if starting a company is grueling and hard. There are going to be days that you feel everything is going wrong. The way you will make it through this is by fixating on what you are really truly passionate about. So, find your passion and figure out how to do that 20 hours per day.

    Michelle Arbov, 28, Vice President of M&A at IAC.

    Michelle Arbov, Vice President of M&A, IAC

    Michelle Arbov, age 28, is a rising star at IAC, a $15 billion internet conglomerate founded by media mogul Barry Diller. She joined the company three years ago as the associate director on the merger and acquisition team and has been promoted rapidly.  Now, as the vice president of M&A at IAC, Arbov leads the company’s efforts in corporate development and financing.

    Constantly ask questions. Ithinksomepeoplethinkthattheyneedtoknowtheanswers when they speak. But I think asking questionsandshowingthatyou wanttolearn and wanttogrow isimportant, especiallyasyouwanttoaccelerateyourcareer. Neverjustdoyourjob. Try to makethe person's life who you'reworking for easier. By havingthatmentality, you're able to learn more and take on more than you thought you would. 

    Join the company that's aligned with your ambitions. Culture is a huge factor in choosing the right place to work. An example of a great culture is one that values hard work and lets you take on as much as you can if you raise your hand — as long as you deliver.

    Always ask for feedback so you can constantly make yourself better in your role — and take on more.  

    Loek Janssen, 29, cofounder and CTO of Nova Credit.

    Loek Janssen, Nova Credit

    Janssen emigrated to the US from the Netherlands five years ago to pursue a master's degree in Computational Mathematics & Engineering at Stanford. The brainchild of Janssen and two Stanford classmates, Nova aims to solve a problem the founders encountered: the difficulty in transferring personal credit histories from their home countries to the US. So they decided to invent an international credit passport system that allows people's data to follow them from country to country. 

    Nova Credit was started as a Stanford graduate research project, but it's gained rapid adoption since then. Now, the startup has raised $20 million to-date and is backed by investors like General Catalyst and Index Ventures.

    There is an opportunity here to do good to help immigrants who are currently being rejected by the system. By doing good you also help the American economy. Immigrants who want to work have a good track record and income — but they have been rejected by the financial system purely because that is how we have been doing it for many decades, and that is something we have to change. So open your eyes — there are people that need help and market opportunities. You are missing out.
