"When the pandemic broke out, I realised that being on foot restricts your world to just 4-5 Km maximum. This mobility issue inspired me to design the kit," he added, whose indigenous innovation can convert any bicycle into an #EV.
The kit, known as #DVECK, enhances the features of a bicycle or rickshaw by giving it a speed of 25 kph, a weight capacity of 170 kilograms, and a range of 40 kilometres per charge.

more #cryptocurrency talk. it seems that there may be (another) #cryptocrash developing; there's been so many of them.

to reiterate my earlier point: the allure of #cryptocurrencies is instant #money in vast volumes, and that's why $BITC and @ETH have a million copycats.

#cryptocurrency (and the related #blockchain money-making gewgaw, the #NFT) are in a sense nothing new. there have been untold millions of #investment scams and #business tricks and other shifty clever ways that at least *pretend* they can guarantee an effortless #profit.

this is an artifact of the extreme #wealth inequality encouraged by #capitalism: once you've got a bunch of elite capitalists *hoarding* all the #money, that means you've got big enough piles to *steal*. all get-rich-quick schemes are ultimately acts of disguised _theft_.

so! let's talk about the #cryptocurrency phenomenon again. $BITC / @Bitcoin, $ETH / @ethereum, $USDT / @Tether_to, $BNB / @binance — there are a LOT of these #cryptocurrencies out there, maybe even millions of them. and that's a first clue about them and about #capitalism.

it's gospel #capitalism that the activities of "the #markets"—capitalist propaganda i.e. #business and #finance and #investment #journalism, not to mention all the #science and #technology journalism that's chiefly #advertising for corporations—are supernaturally powerful.

the central lie is that "the markets" (i.e. the sum total of all monetary transactions by all money-seeking entities in #capitalism) are the best possible mechanism for fulfilling every conceivable human need.

if it's not "on the market", then you don't really need it.

I am a #unicorn! you may believe that, or not.

my sense of self isn't dependent upon outsiders' scorn; in any case, I'm quite content to be regarded as a mere figment of a crazy person's imagination. that's little impediment to my life and purpose in the Pnictogen Wing.

I daresay that I'm unusually *practical* for a unicorn. my interests are mundane ones; I like science and engineering and working in shops and keeping things running as smoothly as possible, and while I'm no atheist or positivist, I leave magic and religion to others.

all the same—it's a painful thing, being a unicorn in a world that has attempted to *wipe out* creativity and mysticism and magic—a world that embraces cruelty and casual sneers at suffering and death. I may have been ethereal once; I am not, now.

Common misconceptions about SBA loans:

📌 Misconception: You always have to pledge a lien on your house

➡️ Reality: The lien is only required if you have 25% or more equity in your house. 1/x

#sba #smb #acquisitions #entrepreneurs #independentsponsors

📌Misconception: When you're buying a business, your 10% down payment needs to be all cash

➡️ Reality: You have the ability to do 5% cash (based on the total uses of funds) if the seller holds 5% on Full Standby as a seller note. 2/x
📌 Misconception: Anyone in the ownership group has to personally guaranty the SBA loan

➡️ Reality: SBA's requirement is that any 20% or more owner of the business has to personally guaranty. 3/x

➡️ One casual observation from my trip in Costa Rica: there are entrepreneurs everywhere

➡️ At restaurants, waiters have side hustles doing sales to sign people up for local excursions

➡️ At the beach, it's an entrepreneur trying to sell you juice or a beer. 1/x
➡️ This is not a political post but is simply my own opinion: America should take note of the hustle in countries like Costa Rica

➡️ If you lose your job, instead of seeking unemployment or sitting and playing Xbox, start shoveling snow or mowing lawns. 2/x
➡️ There is a ton of opportunity out there, and there are many potential markets, services, and clients that need various things

➡️ Start hustling a bit more and complaining a bit less

➡️ If you aren't happy with your job, start a side hustle and turn it into your main hustle

the last twenty or thirty years have seen a remarkable intellectual phenomenon: #computer technicians, people whose sole area of expertise is computer #programming and #software engineering and other related disciplines, have come to be regarded as "Renaissance Men".

the "#STEM Lord" is an artifact of this phenomenon. while "STEM" is supposed to comprise mathematics and engineering and mathematics, the typical "STEM Lord" is not well-versed in any of these things—the typical "STEM Lord" is in #computers. they are a *technician*.

that is to say, #computer professionals are people with *limited* educations, who are devoted solely to mastering the intricacies of a certain sort of machinery, namely the modern computer.

men like @fchollet, @JeffDean, @antoniogm, and @ID_AA_Carmack typify the class.

"One of the sharks asked me why I looked so happy. People with disabilities are portrayed as sad and depressed. My episode bust these stereotypes. ⁠

#Entrepreneurs #StartupIndia #InclusiveIndia #SharkTank
You might develop new stereotypes after watching that episode that people with disabilities are strong, opinionated, full of confidence, and with hard work, they can triumph over all adversities. ⁠
This story is about celebrating inclusion in a very true sense, says #VineetSaraiwala, who runs #AtypicalAdvantage -- which claims to be India’s largest #inclusive #employment platform for people with disabilities across India.⁠

“While working at grassroots levels, I realised the huge gap in implementing government schemes. We have a lot of schemes, but they often don’t reach the bottom of the pyramid," says Aniket Deogar.

He helps facilitate welfare schemes for people across the country while targeting their problems through his #social enterprise, #Haqdarshak.
The start-up appoints local women in villages who go door-to-door and help people apply for government schemes and file paperwork covering areas like education, housing, health, employment, small businesses and COVID-19-related benefits.

“We made our own detachable battery box made of aluminium alloy. It’s anodised, which acts as a cooling paint. In Indian temperatures, when the battery heats up, the battery box absorbs and transmits the heat outside.
Our 5.8 Ah battery charges from 0 to 80% in 45 minutes with our 6 A fast charger."

Today, the startup manufactures #ebikes with 80% of the components developed in-house and has sold more than 100 units while raising an amount of 1 crore at #SharkTankIndia.

this amusing image passed our way this morning; it's a rendered image (like most of @elonmusk's publicity materials) of that hideously low-polygon @Tesla truck that will probably never reach market.

I would like to offer a speculation as to why it looks so ugly.

the hideousness of the $TSLA truck is baffling, even taking into account the mind-numbing effects of being in @elonmusk's quasi-religious faction. it's the sort of thing that makes you wonder: "didn't *anyone* of importance denounce this thing during the design process?"

but that question should be the first clue: quite possibly there *was* no real design process. it's possible that @elonmusk really did "design" the appearance of the @Tesla truck the same way Homer Simpson "designed" his perfect car by idly scrawling on bits of paper.

Business acquisitions financed through SBA loans have very specific requirements that need to be followed. In this thread, I will dive into a few such requirements🧵 👇

#sba #smb #acquisitions #entrepreneurs #independentsponsors
1 - Complete Change of Ownership:

➡️ As the SBA's guidelines currently stand, if you are buying a business as an external buyer (someone that doesn't currently own equity in one), you are required to completely buyout the seller(s). No exceptions.
2 - Consulting Period for the Seller(s):

➡️ SBA guidelines currently enable a seller to stay on for up to 12 months following the date of the closing of a business acquisition. The terms of the consulting arrangement must be approved by your lender & lender's legal counsel.
