Workplace collaboration platform Slack has closed its long-rumored new round of fundraising, a $250 million round led by SoftBank’s Vision Fund as it seeks to beat back a growing list of competitors with deep pockets.According to Bloomberg, Slack said it is still sitting on most of the $591 million it had previously raised.The latest round will give the company “operational flexibility.”San Francisco-based Slack has been one of Silicon Valley’s hottest startups in recent years.But that success has drawn in numerous competitors, including Microsoft which launched Teams earlier this year; Atlassian Corp. has its HipChat service workplace collaboration; Google, which launched Hangouts Chat earlier this year; and Facebook, which is still pushing its Workplace service.So, $250 million only looks like a lot of money until you look at the balance sheets of those competitors.

Kulutusluotoilla ja varsinkin pikavipeillä on huono maine.“Lainamarkkinoille on viime vuosina tullut paljon lisää yrityksiä ja valitettavasti kaikki eivät toimi avoimuuden hengessä.Kuluttajan täytyy olla itse tarkkana lainatuotetta valitessaan, sillä väärän lainan valinta voi tulla todella kalliiksi”, Timgren pohtii.Kuluttajia harhautetaan yhä turhan usein.”Timgrenin mukaan kuluttajan pitää lainavertailuissaan olla todella tarkkana, koska väärän lainan valinta tulee aina kalliiksi.Toisekseen jotkut joustoluottojen ja pikavippien tarjoajat eivät laske vuosikorkoon kaikkia kuluja.

UK shower manufacturer, Triton Showers, has invested an initial six figure sum into an update of the brand and development of a national, multi-channel advertising campaign.The bold move, which comes as part of a collaboration with Birmingham based communications agencies One Black Bear and WPR, makes Triton the first shower company in the UK to embark upon activity of this scale.Headed by its new strapline ‘See you first thing Britain’, the initiative has seen the manufacturer develop a number of different ‘first thing’ personality types, encapsulating the country’s varied shower habits.Richard Elwell, creative partner at One Black Bear, explains the process: "To do this, we developed the positioning of 'See you first thing Britain' and created a series of personalities to emphasise how although we all have different morning routines, we should all have one thing in common; a shower... a Triton shower, to be more precise."The TV ad aims to show non-clichéd shower scenarios and avoids talking about power, efficiency or ease of use but more about the emotional attachment we all have with the shower experience.”A TV advert depicting each character’s morning routine will be showcased for the first time this autumn, set to air on ITV, Channel 4 and Sky, and will be supported by a comprehensive digital advertising schedule.

Ikväll ska landets invånare bestämma om de vill ha en Norge-historia med eller utan olja.Samma dag som Norges medborgare går till valurnorna kom ett besked från Kina.Kina kommer i så fall att ansluta till en växande skara nationer som förbundit sig till det åtagandet: England och Frankrike ska förbjuda förbränningsmotorer i bilar från och med 2040.Rörelsen mot en fossilfri framtid har blivit en av de stora valfrågorna i Norge.Främlingsfientliga Fremskrittspartiet har visserligen lovat att de ska ”vrida ur varenda droppe” olja Norge förfogar över, men deras bundsförvanter i den norska regeringen, konservativa Høyre, erkänner i sitt partiprogram att landet inte har råd att förlita sig på en naturtillgång som inte är kompatibel med det internationella samfundets utsläppsmål.Frågan är bara om dagens koalitionsregering får lov att sätta agendan när rösterna väl räknats.
I agree that it was dishonest journalism that most just created “the distance between a new and an old medievärld”.But what happened after that was something that the internet world like to call “redpilled”.It is an understandable reaction in a way.the Fight with the WSJ became a battle between the two major media house, where a traditional world tried to make down everything he built up.To either surrender and accept the caning as the Wall Street Journal wanted to give him, or stand up for himself.But in the choice of the second option seemed to completely miss what he is up to.

Typhoons have broken four submarine cables in the crowded Asian sea-lanes, with a knock-on impact for Australian ISPs iiNet and Internode.The four damaged cables are ASE (Asia Submarine-Cable Express), TGA-Intra Asia (TGA-IA), Asia-American Gateway (AAG) and SEA-ME-WE3 (SMW3).SMW3 connects Perth to Singapore; ASE and TGA-IA are intra-Asia cables, while ASE connects various Asian landings to California.According to Malaysia's The Star, the cables were damaged by two typhoons in late August: Hato, which left three dead in Macau after hitting Hong Kon; and Pakhar, which swept through the same region a few days later.IiNet's outage notice says it's being impacted by the SMW3 break, and a second break “~54k off the coast of Hong Kong” which could be any one of the other three, since they all have a Hong Kong landing.The cable owners expect repairs to take well into October, depending on the availability of repair vessels and how long it takes to locate the breaks.
The Boston Red Sox used an Apple Watch to steal pitching signs during baseball games, including against the New York Yankees, according to The New York Times.An investigation conducted by Major League Baseball determined that a member of the Red Sox training staff used the smartwatch to receive information that helped the team’s players decipher hand signals used by the opposing team’s catcher, who is in charge of making (and signaling) the pitch selections for the pitcher.The MLB commissioner’s office began the investigation two weeks ago after Brian Cashman, the Yankees’ general manager, reportedly filed an official complaint.No penalties have been issued as of yet.Sign stealing isn’t explicitly against the MLB’s rules, but it’s definitely frowned upon, and it has a long history in baseball.From that position, the player is lined up just behind the pitcher, and has a clear view of the signals that the catcher uses to call different pitch types (fastball, curveball, etc.)
