"And the Senate has passed the bill to protect same sex marriage. It begs to have more. Yeah, exactly right, Paul, this has been a project of president Joe Biden, senator Chuck Schumer and House speaker Nancy Pelosi. It's pretty exciting to have this marriage equality bill come up.

So the speaker sounds as if it will pass the House and enshrines the rights for same sex marriage into law also covers interracial marriage.

It is announced that in a Jean journal known as the iPhone city, it will roll back some of what it calls mobility controls as of November 30th. Bloomberg examiner O'Brien says a question is how well it tolerates the increased cases. Yeah, I mean, this seems to be officials attempts at still controlling the situation there, but trying to be or at least appear to be more targeted. We have sort of seen similar moves going back and forth in zhengzhou over the past couple of weeks. They locked down. They went more targeted than they had to lock down again. Now, Emma also says that they will target vaccinating seniors how that plays out will depend on the programs themselves and then how much continued resistance there is an older communities to getting vaccinated. China has launched three astronauts to its newly completed space station, their scheduled to spend the next 6 months on projects aimed at fulfilling Beijing's goal of creating a permanent Chinese presence in space. U.S. expects China to keep up more aggressive behavior toward Taiwan, it says it looks to be the new normal. Meanwhile, U.S. Brigadier general pat Ryder says the U.S. will continue to enter waters around the spratly islands. I know that there has been some reporting that China essentially ejected our ship from the areas that is not true. Again, we'll continue to sail fly and operate wherever international law allows. China had objective, but writers says those waters are international. Twitter says it has stopped policing COVID misinformation on Elon Musk, also says that the team tackling child sexual abuse has been decimated and Australia is pushing back on a United Nations backed mission that pushes to add the Great Barrier Reef to a list of endangered World Heritage Sites.

"And just pause, pause that point because holy shit, this is a sad moment, but his arm is looking incredible. Anyway, Thor screams the heavens and collapses to his knees. He's taking it to custody is a weird triforce symbol disappears from the mjolnir, which doesn't really come back. Is that a thing? What is this thing? Did you guys catch this? Is that again? Oh, the symbol on it. It's the three ovals together intertwined. It looks like a little leaf of some sort. I don't know what that's for. Isn't that just as guardian like the crest? It only appears when Odin's talking like it reappears on the hammer when Odin is like when he whispers to it. Power of Thor. Because we see in the other movies, there's moments where he doesn't attack and then it makes that on the floor. Like a glyph type thing. Okay, that makes sense. Holy shit, the guys on my mom. I see. Chris Anka is in the live chat on Patreon right now. And I know that motherfucker knows what's up with this. So I'm looking for some facts, Chris. I'm just going to, I'm just going to slack this to you if you and I can just enjoy this. You can enjoy this time together. Look at those fucking things. Arms, this jpeg is just going to be called arms. Let's say that off is leave it on the desktop for a bit. Yeah, Brody, come on, that's going to stay there. Of course, let's see. Where are we? Nothing happens. Heimdall watched the whole thing go down. And then changes the channel. Darcy finds miu miu and the children's book and Jane argues with Eric. He's like, this is all just magic and hogwash, and she says, maybe magic is just science, we don't understand yet. And then I have to quote Arthur Conan Doyle, no. Arthur Clarke. Anyway, science fiction writer. Colson interrogates Thor, but has to leave Loki shows up in the mirror verse and tells Thor that his father is dead. All of it was too much for him to bear. So cruel to put the hammer in your reach with knowing you could never lift it. He tells Thor that his mother has forbidden him to return the truth with jotunheim is dependent on his thing banished. Thor apologizes to his brother and then thanks him for coming. And he's like, oh, you're like, oh, that's a little new there. And the hair is even worse in this light. Thank you. Thanks so much. Loki tries to lift mjolnir just in case and fails. I like that. He just says, let's just see what happens here. It tries to lift it. It's like, I can't get it. And then Eric comes and lies to Colson about Thor doing roids and Coulson knows he's full of shit, but on the way out, Thor grabs Jean's journal and Coulson orders them followed. They head to the bar and Thor admits to being lost Eric tells him that that's the first step toward figuring out a new direction is to be lost. And then four or 5 realizes that his father was trying to teach him responsibility. He swears to Eric that he means Jane no harm and Eric makes him promise to leave town after they get super drunk, which, of course, backfires. Loki pays his real father a visit. And I love, I don't know why I said love the size difference. Oh, lafay, that's right. He pays laughing at different, and I love the size difference. He offers lafia deal. He'll sneak them back to kill Odin, and they can get the casp casket back. When he returns, I'm Dale. Calls him out for being sneaky AF and Loki makes him swear to keep the bifrost closed until he repairs the damage Thor has done. Thwart brings Eric back to Jane's trailer and the old Qadri was drunk as a skunk, but Thor barely even drunk at all, not even at all. You're good word right there. Thanks, man. I looked it up. A conger in a podunk town. That's what it is, man. Sergeant, I promise you, I just finished going to send it to you right now. So you can see. Now, I was waiting. I was like, are you sending me this photo? What the fuck? That went to Tim for sorry about that with by accident. Here's arms. And you know what you're going to send that. Tim wasn't supposed to get Tim deleted. Great. I just got a slack from Nick that definitely is a jpeg that just says arms JPG, arms you spelled with a Z yeah, there it is. I can follow through on my back. Oh yeah, wow. Good lord. Holy shit, those are huge. Wow. Let's see, Jane is all flustered when he shows up in her makeshift apartment and throws a dirty plate in the cabinet. Then they head up to the roof and sit by a makeshift fire. And these two are just cute together. Thor gives her her journal back and she's grateful, even though he's like, sorry, this is all I could get from shield, but she still worried that shield is going to come and take everything away, and Thor tells her not to give up. He draws a tree and tells her about the 9 realms of the cosmos and the world's tree, which they can see on the telescope, which is key that he can't pronounce that. And immediately, I just think of how excited I am to play God of War again. Absolutely. Do you also think maybe in the back of your brain anything while Tim's not here, cat's away mouse will play? Do you just when you look at these two, like, make out already? Can you make out already? I like that you said mouse will play 'cause you're the only one who's gonna play. Yeah, you're not gonna play it. You're on the street near all right. These two fall asleep under the stars. I mean while over an Asgard lady sif rallies, the warriors three to go find Thor, heimdall calls for them. He says, you would defy or call them out rather. He says he would defy the command of Loki our king and commit trees and to bring Thor back and they say yes, it feels good. He's like, I want to know what's going on. Basic, but I can't be here. So I haven't felt bounces, but he leaves a sword and bifrost control unit, and off they go to earth. Coleslaw to the team head back out to the in their acuras. Which is a very wild sponsorship. While authoring Jane make Eric and Darcy some tasty breakfast and he's like, listen, I'm all domesticated now. I know how to make eggs and toast and I'm a different man. I'm a change person. Loki heads down to the vault and calls in the destroyer. Lady sif and the warriors walk down Main Street, and it's weird, and I don't like this shot. And this is where this movie starts to break apart a little bit. Thor, of course, is overjoyed to see his friends, but he tells me he can't come home because of his dad's death, and they're like, what the heck are you talking about, man? You got it all wrong. Loki has played you. And then Loki heads back over to the bifrost and fires heimdall, and then freezes him mere inches away from heimdall, shoving his bifrost up where the rainbow don't shine. Down on earth. I just have to call on it. It's heimdall, and I know chats. I know the comments are gonna say it. It is. Accountable for not correcting it. You're right. And I apologize because I typed it in a high Dell and then I think I autocorrected it. So it just didn't pop up. So heimdall, with an a I feel like they say hi to a lot though. They call it. It is spelled with an a. I think it's the accent. Well, in the UK, a's and E's are interchangeable. You can just do whatever you want with them. I feel like baked beans. Because they can be breakfast too, and when he started saying it when he said the in the UK, I was like, this is gonna end. I did not expect him to compare it to baked beans. I'm shocked there was some logic behind it. Huge. Huge. It didn't work until Kevin said, 'cause you can have it for breakfast and everyone got it. I just start in the dark. I just see Nick running through a dark hallway like looking for a door. Like, what's here? That's what the brain's going through in that moment. It was dark in the dark, man. Okay. And then that one, the brain did not find the door. The door went right against my forehead. I was like, I think I found something. I stepped on a fucking shovel or something if I came out and hit you. Down on earth, a storm brews in the distance. The destroyer has arrived..

"To equity at the TechCrunch podcast where we unpack the numbers and the nuance behind the headlines. This is Alex. It is march the 21st of 2022. It is Monday morning, which means yes. We're going to talk about the markets. We're going to talk about big tech. We're going to talk about startups. There's lots to get through today, so strap in. Let's have some fun. We're going to start as always with the markets over in Asia, Japanese stocks are up, Chinese stocks are flat and shares in Hong Kong are down over in the European Union shares are generally hired though with some variation and domestically here in the United States stocks are mixed to flat this morning. Now, there is a couple of big news items that I'm going to flag for you just in case you see them elsewhere, but Berkshire Hathaway is buying insurance giant oligarch for $11.6 billion. Russian bond yields are spiking as they began to trade again, keep an eye on that. And a passenger plane went down in China, a tragedy, but also probably something that's going to impact transit stocks and plane manufacturers. Looking over in the world of crypto not too much going on this morning, but I will say that Bitcoin and eth both had a good last week with Bitcoin up 6% and eth up 13% over the last 7 days, and as a final little markets caveat NFT volume per open sea doesn't seem such report a very good month. And so we are actually seeing the NFT slowdown that we thought we might see earlier in March. What that means for the future, I leave to you, but that's the data. The big news this morning from the world of technology and software and money is that private equity firm toma bravo is going to buy an app plan for $10.7 billion or about $66 per share. Now, what is Anaplan? Well, it's a huge company that makes financial planning software and was public. Now according to Anaplan itself, quote, the offer represents a premium of approximately 46% to its volume weighted average price or essentially a 50% markup on where it was trading before the deal. Now according to The Wall Street Journal and a plan is going to be used as a platform for more acquisitions. So perhaps it's kind of the start of a SaaS roll up from Tom and bravo, but I was really curious about the deal itself. Is it expensive? Was it cheap? What can you learn from it? Well, I went ahead and pulled Anaplan's Q four earnings and the company had approximately a $163 million in revenue up about 33% in Q four. Now, if you run all the numbers, it works out to essentially a 16 X Q four run rate multiple, which is really not bad at all. In fact, it's kind of rich. So the deal, just kind of from where I'm sitting from my first impressions, feels kind of bullish. And because the deal itself wasn't cheap, it could actually be really good news for other software deals. Now, why is that? Well, there's lots of money out there in private equity today. Dry powder as they call it. So big deals like this won't be super uncommon if things are affordable. And we have seen the value of many software companies drop in recent months, so lots of cash, cheaper prices, sounds like a recipe for deals. Now, who else could be in the mix for a possible buy at? Now, this is not the list any company wants to be on, every company wants to be fast growing, super profitable, and independent. They're not all like that though. So a couple of ideas Dropbox, DocuSign, amplitude maybe, there are a couple names you could throw in the mix that have suffered from public market declines and are quite valuable. So we'll see. On the other hand, media analytics group Nielsen holdings just turned down a buyout offers not everyone is going to say yes when money comes knocking, but I will say last year we had many IPOs, maybe this year we're going to see many acquisitions. More to come. Before we get to startups, let's take a quick stop in the world of mega unicorns. Now, if you watch Formula One, you might have spied FTX branding on the Mercedes cars. Well, the company is back in the news today for launching in Australia. And if you don't know FTX, it's a global crypto trading platform, kind of like coinbase. Now this is not the first time the FTX has set up shop in a single country, FTX U.S. has existed for some time, for example. And according to block works, quote, the move by FDX to move into Australia is in lockstep with other major exchanges, including binance and kraken, who already set up domestic presence in the last two years. So essentially we have seen other companies also moved to Australia. I will note here that FTX is also in both the EU and the UAE. Some crypto companies are crushing their domestic markets while others are going broader, coinbase, for example, says that it's in more than 100 countries. Here's my question. Do regional players survive or do they get eaten? If the latter, who winds up being the most busy, and when? And will be in a public company being advantaged in a future crypto trading platform rollup. After all, if your public, you have liquid stock and maybe more cash, time will tell. I'm also curious to know when this happens. If there is a roll up in crypto trading while it comes before or after a crypto winter or a period of time in crypto activity hits a local minimum. Regardless, FDX has lots of money and is rather busy. Do you really know who you're dealing with? These days, we need a real life red flag detector to know who we can trust. Interference.

Now, right on your phone. Lots of startup news this morning, we have two funding rounds and a bit of a snapshot into what's going on for Russian entrepreneurs. According to our own Rita liao talent is leaving Russia, she writes the following. Russia is seen in exodus of entrepreneurs, computer programmers as well as other educated middle class citizens as western sanctions and political instability make it impossible to run an international business in the country. And what she did was she talked to a couple of founders who are dealing with this directly, one of whom was Eugene ko Nash of London based gaming studio D.C. lab that has quite a lot of staff in Russia. And according to her reporting quote, investors told Eugene in no uncertain terms that a startup would be uninvestable if they continued to have such a heavy presence in Russia. His Russia based team agreed it was time to leave. So essentially what we are seeing here is that investor pressure could choke off capital to Russian startups or companies that have a lot of employees in Russia, leading to essentially a negative loop, less capital. Well, more fear, more fear, less capital. This is not the first time, however, the company's in Russia or that have a heavy presence in the country have had to deal with the complex geopolitical landscape. Rita reports that quote after the invasion of Crimea 7 years ago, many Russian built companies began to incorporate elsewhere in a bid to placate investors with pumps over the political risks and objects associated with backing Russian companies. However, if that was a trimmer, this is a real earthquake, and so we could actually be seeing kind of the start of the end of the Russian entrepreneurial landscape from a tech perspective for some time. Turn into a couple of interesting funding rounds this morning. Let's start with powered by people, a wholesale ecommerce platform based in Kenya with hubs in the Americas, Asia and Europe that just raised $5 million in seed funding. Now, what does it want to do? Well, I want to increase its transaction volumes by growing the number of brands using its B2B online marketplace to reach international buyers. All of that, according to our own any and Jean journal about it for TechCrunch. So who was in the round? Well, it sus adventures, golden ventures, and notably flexport ventures. I guess that our riff that more firms are building CVs is correct because I hadn't heard of flexport ventures, and now I have. The company has now raised a total of $7 million, how far has it gotten with that total capital raise well. It recorded an annualized run rate of $15 million in total GMV in kind of mid march and expects to grow that number to about 25 million before the end of the year. Now, because everything in the world is FinTech, well, powered by people is as well. The company also extends up to 50% advanced financing to traders, essentially a 120 day credit facility at a 5% rate, and it is lent out 5.8 million thus far, expecting to reach 10 million by the end of the year. Debt is very profitable, wholesale ecommerce platforms might not have the world's best gross margins, so why not throw a little FinTech in there? Everyone else is doing it. And finally, from our startup section this morning, commerce IQ, which just raised a $115 million series C and is now worth more than $1 billion. What does it do?.
