1/ $UBER with a strong report, finally seeing meaningful profitability (and importantly FCF). GBV +33%, EBITDA $364m (4.5% rev margin, 1.3% GBV margin) $382m of FCF, and reaffirm long term ability to hit $5B of EBITDA (with $4B+ of FCF) in 2024
2/ Driver supply has improved, wait times down, % of trips surged also down (and both trending towards pre-covid levels). Doing this while avg driver earning well >$30/hr in the US. This is a sustainably profitable business now.
3/ Delivery business in transition from hyper-growth -> profitability and digesting the "covid bump". $UBER US delivery +21% in Q2 (and active couriers +53% Y/Y playing catch up). Helps that they're seeing a rationalization of the competitive environment. (#RIP 15min delivery)

⭕♨️🗿 Érigé en 1980, #RIP les Georgia Guidesones sont un ensemble monumental de six blocs en granit situé dans le Comté d’Elbert, au Nord-Est de la Géorgie.

5 dalles massives de granit émergent de la terre, mesurant chacune 5m de haut, et pesant plus de 20t chacune. 🤔

1/8 ImageImage
Ensembles, elles soutiennent une pierre de 11 tonnes, cette pierre de couverture repose sur les cinq dalles, qui sont alignées astronomiquement.
Cette structure est écrite en 8 langues différentes : Anglais, Espagnol, Russe, Chinois, Arabe, Hébreu, Hindi et Swahili,...

2/8 ImageImage
...chacune des langues est écrite sur les différentes faces des 4 grandes pierres verticales. Mais l’on retrouve aussi l’écriture de 4 autres langues anciennes : Le Babylonien, l’Égyptien, le Grec et le Sanskrit, présente sur les 4 tranches de la pierre de couverture.

Incredibly sad - and infuriating - news. The bodies of the British journalist @domphillips, and indigenous expert Bruno Pereira, have reportedly been found. They were reporting in a remote Amazon region on illegal invasions by mining/logging interests.

Dom was one of those journalists who began working in Brazil, fell in love with the country, married a Brazilian woman, then devoted himself to dangerous, intrepid reporting on illegal exploitation of the Amazon: a stark reminder of the value and danger of real journalism. #RIP
There will be indignation and demands for justice, but it's hard to be hopeful. If someone had told me in 2018 that Marielle Franco's assassination would remain largely unsolved 4 years later, I wouldn't have believed it. And yet. Read about Dom here:

Forbearance went from near 5,000,000 to under 500K today. The Forbearance Crash Bros were all really Anti-Central Bank Housing Bubble Boys 2.0 people; I just gave them a new name for 2020/2021

The biggest reason this group failed is that they didn't read. Reading is a good thing, not a bad thing…
The quick version was that most people who made over 60K got their jobs back by October 2020, so Forbearance was going to collapse, and it was going to take time getting off the data line. This is why a credit risk profile blackguard could have helped 😉

One of many losers of the tragic murder of Palestinian journalist #Shereen_Abu_Aqleh is what I describe as Supremacist Islamism.
#Thread 1/
First let’s define it:
It is a hard core conservative vision of Islam that sees Muslims as superior to others, including Other Abrahamic faiths.
It also views every rule of Sharia as sacred tenant of the faith that can’t and shouldn’t be subjected to modern interpretation 2/
With the rise of Islamism in 70s, Supremacist preachers gain dominance and popularity in many Muslim countries including Egypt & Gulf states.
Sheikh Sharawi in Egypt was one example. His interpretations are still popular, but many didn’t take as suitable for modern era 3/

Deborah was stoned and burnt to death today @ sokoto state college of education for blasphemy.

In a voice note, she reacted against posting of religious contents in their class group chat on WhatsApp. Rest In Peace Deborah
All the Christians in the north on my list are asking “why did she say it?” and “ na she kill herself”.

You can't be in the north and not understand this simple safety tip. Do not say anything whether good or bad about their religion. Except you want to be killed.
Also, Nothing will happen to her killers, no waste your time with #justice for, just #RIP

👇🏾The man who said Millenials don't buy homes is part of the anti central bank trolling crew that has been terrible for 11 years. He will never, ever forecast sales
Not demographics at all 😇🤟🏽😉
Economics is demographics and productivity; the rest is stamp collecting! However, demographics and mortgage rates are prime for housing. 2020-2024 will be different for many years because of #Demographics.
People buy homes, not an MBS. 😉

We lost another of the absolute greats this weekend with the passing of the legendary artist, writer and creator George Pérez. His career is truly a testament to what one can achieve in life when singularly focused on what one loves to do.

And George loved comics. (1/8)
Everything about it.

Every detail.

Every energy crackle.

Every brick in the wall.

Every character, both iconic and obscure.

Every nuance to every complicated costume ever.

Every creative partnership with his favorite collaborators.
And in this singular focus, George did it all. We creators may all have access to the same tools of the trade: pen, paper and imagination, but what George could do with his prodigious talents was off the charts.

My final Disney park visit last summer. It was hot. They kept yelling at my baby to get the mask over the nose, outside. It was Pride. Every store was filled with only rainbow gear, including on toddler mannequins.
Had a verbal altercation w a creep and his 10 pals who all cut in front of us at Pedos of the Caribbean. All 10 of them, fat but healthy looking, ran onto the ride. When I told a Cast Member about it, creep yelled at me and claimed they were with a "disabled" person. #neveragain
The boomer lesbians behind us in head-to-toe rainbow gear, back us up and start screaming at the creep. She yells "Bullshit! You're not disabled! I have a bad knee and I couldn't get a disabled pass!" Bless their hearts.

tldr: It is no longer the happiest place on earth.

🔴 La @CNIL me confirme que l'utilisation du système anti-robot "reCAPTCHA" de #Google doit être soumis au consentement. Lettre de la CNIL du 11 avril 2022 : réponse à une plainte
@CNIL Suite à une plainte que j'ai déposé en juin 2020 sur l'utilisation de @Interieur_Gouv de #GoogleCaptcha sur le formulaire de signalement de l'#IGPN, la CNIL a demandé au ministère de ne plus l'utiliser.
@CNIL @Interieur_Gouv La CNIL juge que #GoogleCaptcha "permettrait par ailleurs des opérations d'analyse de la part de Google" et que donc "la collecte d'informations n'aurait pas pour seule finalité la sécurisation du site".

1-) Greeks massacred the Turks, Scottish Historian George Finlay noted that a Greek priest, named Phrantzes, was an eyewitness to the massacres. Based on the descriptions provided by Phrantzes, he wrote:

Source: History of the Greek Revolution.… Image
Finlay: Greeks seized infants from their mother's breasts and dashed them against rocks. Children, three and four years old, were hurled living into the sea and left to drown. When the massacre was ended, the dead bodies washed ashore or piled on the beach… Image
Finlay: Turk Women, wounded with musket balls and saber-cuts,rushed to the sea, seeking to escape, and were deliberately shot by Greeks.

Бывает же… Это, извиняюсь, гроб Яакко Куусисто (Jaakko Kuusisto¹). Скрипач, композитор, дирижер — умер месяц назад. Молодой ещё был, от рака быстро сгорел. Очень крутой.

В малых составах, в частности ↓ гроб Яакко Куусисто (Jaakko Kuusisto¹). С
, с Ранталой² играл. Прикладываю. “Vanhojapoikia viiksekkäitä”. Локальный «эвергрин» в Финляндии. Её все играли. Юха Вайнио написал. Наш пацан был, пил, как не в себя…

В версиях с вокалом — это ↓
… история о старике, жителе скалистого острова и не менее одиноком тюлене. Два представителя исчезающих видов. «Усатые холостяки» — это перевод названия. Дед играет на губной гармошке, а тюлень навестил послушать.

Um arrepio percorreu meu braço inteiro... #RIP
Chocado. Mark Lanegan era daqueles que a gente sabia que vivia com a saúde debilitada, mas que sempre dava um jeito de ir empurrando a vida pra frente e que a gente esperava ouvir cantando com aquele vozeirão aos 90 anos... Todas as vezes que o vi ao vivo foram especiais...
Meu show favorito do Lanegan foi um no Studio SP (imagina você ver um ídolo ali, coladinho no palco) e outro em um festival em Bruges, na Bélgica, com (outro amado aqui em casa) Greg Dulli, em que ele cantou uma das minhas favoritas do Screaming Trees, "Sworn and Broken". ImageImageImageImage

Philip Seymour Hoffman, gone eight years ago today. His @nytimes obit called him “the most ambitious and widely admired American actor of his generation.”

(Also, the best character introduction in modern cinema.) #RIP

“Talented Mr. Ripley” (1999)
Whenever I need something to cheer me up, I watch this clip of Hoffman and Joaquin Phoenix, trying to hold it together while filming “The Master.”


Has ANYONE ever played “rage” better, on film?

Maybe Malkovich. But, c’mon. Wow.

“Punch-Drunk Love” (2002)
