Millennials Didn’t Kill the Economy. The Economy Killed Millennials.

Today: Marijuana Is Legal Everywhere, Apple Stock Plummet, Millennials, Non-Compete Agreements, Miami Billionaires

They’re known as the Jills. They’re two of America’s top realtors, selling the glitziest mansions in Miami. Then a place went missing—and everyday greed blossomed into full-blown extortion.

The American system has thrown them into debt, depressed their wages, kept them from buying homes—and then blamed them for everything.

The free flow of employees and ideas encourages innovation. Just ask Silicon Valley.

Today: Weed, Cannabis, Pot, Bitcoin, Branding, Naming, Names, Domain Names, Pales, Payless, VR, Scotts Miracle-Grow

A powerful vision for how a company can benefit the world–and not just stockholders–can have amazing effects on employees’ sense of mission.

What’s in a name? Payless opened a fake pop-up store called "Palessi" in a LA and invited people to the grand opening. The store was stocked with Payless shoes in disguise. One shopper spent $640 on a pair of boots.

5K Domains, Fake & Hidden Browsers, Spoofed Sites: Global Botnets Shut Down Following Arrests

Today: Disappearing Domains, Darknet Bust, American Economy Shift, Seeing Green in Weed

The men are facing 13 charges for allegedly running a sophisticated global ad fraud scheme.

1.7 million infected computers, belonging to ordinary individuals and businesses in the United States  used hidden browsers on those infected computers to download fabricated webpages and load ads onto those fabricated webpages.  

The defendants in this case represented to others that they ran legitimate companies that delivered advertisements to real human internet users accessing real internet webpages.  In fact, the defendants faked both the users and the webpages: they programmed computers they controlled to load advertisements on fabricated webpages, via an automated program, in order to fraudulently obtain digital advertising revenue. 

1,900 computer servers housed in commercial datacenters in Dallas, Texas and elsewhere, and used those datacenter servers to load ads on fabricated websites, “spoofing” more than 5,000 domains.  To create the illusion that real human internet users were viewing the advertisements loaded onto these fabricated websites, the defendants programmed the datacenter servers to simulate the internet activity of human internet users: browsing the internet through a fake browser, using a fake mouse to move around and scroll down a webpage, starting and stopping a video player midway, and falsely appearing to be signed into Facebook.  

Meanwhile, the owners of the infected computers were unaware that this process was running in the background on their computers.  

As goods and services become more intrinsically tied, economists and policymakers look to the future. The fact that goods increasingly need services to function is redefining common conceptions of what constitutes global trade.

As the Dutch stumble towards legalization, Canadian businesses are taking advantage of their talent.

Despite weed being illegal, the U.S. federal government has no problem collecting income tax from cannabis companies.

"30% of Online Domains Disappeared Overnight"..."operational and active hidden services across Tor and I2P disappeared with the hack of Daniel’s Hosting Services and over 6-Million documents archived in DarkOwl Vision are no longer available on the darknet."

Bitcoin Plunges; Some Pot Stocks Plunge-- What's Up With This?

Today including... What startups need to know about SEO and domain names; $1bn Sales in 85 Seconds-- Alibaba Singles Day sales frenzy surpasses records.. and... The Undeniable Impact of Voice Search on the Future of SEO

The virtual currency has lost more than 60% of its value this year
After $30bn invested in the past two years in ICOs there still isn't a single crypto app with a real user base for anything other than speculating on crypto.  The BTC price movement is tough, but the lack of real user base for anything they're investing in is tougher.

Aurora Cannabis is a good example — it may have robust revenue growth, but the revenue itself is tiny

The real Sun's core isn't even close to this hot.

SEO is a huge part of a business’s overall online reputation, and every startup needs to go through it as well.

The Chinese company hit a record $1bn (£774m; €883m) in sales in 85 seconds, and then just shy of $10bn in the first hour of the 24-hour spree.
