After exuberant retail traders sparked a short squeeze in the stock. That meant that the professional traders who had against the mall retailer were forced to buy it to limit their losses pushing the price even higher.

I wouldn't proclaim to know what's going to happen with different investors who try to get in and run with this. We knew from the beginning that you may double a stock and that looks outrageous enough but when you're trading at twenty times what you were a couple of weeks ago there's something besides fundamentals that are at play there so it'd be almost impossible to say because it hasn't been a fundamental Move that's been driving this for quite a while.

No events due to COVID? Tell that to Eventbrite
"So we're all living in a pandemic and we're not going to concerts and plays and things like that right now but we are having events somehow. Julia hearts is the CO founder of event. Bright and she has seen a big jump in events And Julia is going to tell us about it today. High Julia. Hey thanks for having me. Tell us about what's going on. I think that this global pandemic is something that none of us have seen in our lifetimes. We have seen these types of passive crises in history. And you know when we look back to Say The nineteen eighteen flu pandemic and we think about what came after that the roaring twenties You know I think that is a clear signal of human resilience and the human desire to connect so really what we're seeing. Today is this ferocious appetite of consumers wanting to connect with each other in any way shape or form since they can't safely gather They're flocking to online events and event. Bright is a platform that powers event creators of all shapes and sizes. We give small businesses and entrepreneurs the tools that they need to run their businesses and connect to others through life experiences. So what we've seen in the last month alone in April has been just a reflection of how that creators use our platform to connect with their communities at two thousand percent growth in online events on the platform in April alone. But for I. Eight million tickets have been transacted both free and paid tickets to tens of thousands of events that are being put on by both people who are new to event bright but also a big part of our community of these small businesses and professional van. Creators are heading their normal format of offline experiences to online events. Let's take a minute and back up and tell everybody how it works. It's a service an online service that you use to sell or or sell tickets or just to know how many people are coming to your events. So if you're having a book signing as an author And you WanNa you WanNa know that fifty people are coming you send out an event bright invitation so you know. Hey I got fifty people coming. I can order fifty bucks at least right That's that's the Basic Jeff for how it works wrecked that's right. It's an easy to use self service platform. You can sign up if you're hosting any kind of event and what we focus on is offering tools for a vet creators venue owners promoters to To be able to promote therapist so they can create a proprietary event listing. That is really the front door to their event. And then they're able to promote their event and market their event and reach a wider audience as well as analyzed. The results of their event make better decisions for the future. What we're focused on is driving efficiency so our number one job is to save event creators time and money because that is very precious and also expanding their reach to a wider audience. So we have a both a web destination as well as an APP That consumers can go to to discover great things to do. So if you're looking for something to do in the online event world you can go to bright dot com and you can also follow different creators so you can see when they're posting new events and you won't miss out now. I've use it for free and I think a lot of people use it for free. So how does how do we make money? That's a great question. Will evaporate has always been based on the philosophy of building great scale and getting as many people as possible to use the platform so over a million creators last year. Used right to host over four point five million events that transacted over three hundred million tickets and you can use event bright for free we see that as a great benefit that is twofold one is it gives people an opportunity to get to know the platform and be able to use it for their pay events and to it expands the reach of our marketplace. Oh consumers who are using it to buy that ticket to or not. Buy The ticket but rather register for that book signing will come back to discover new things to do and there is a you know important. Flywheel of growth. That happens from that. Our revenue model is based on pay tickets. And I think that's something that we really got right in the early days. The reason why. I think that we got that right as because it aligns our incentives with those of of the creators so we succeed when a creator sells a paid get and therefore it's in our best interest to keep building our strong product that offers the flexibility but also the reach for creators to be generating more ticket sales. And I think in the post code world when we think about rebuilding the live experience economy. That's going to mean more than ever. And that's why I think about bright ultimately going to prevail as the market leader. How would how would you describe your rates? How much does it cost to to celebrate ticket? So it's two point five percent plus ninety nine cents in most markets for pay tickets if berries. Because we're a global company so we've sold tickets at one hundred eighty countries consistently every year But by and large what we aim to do is create a very transparent affordable her ticket fee that can either be absorbed by the event. Creator. Or it can be passed on to the
"Catch and return": U.S. asylum seekers will have to wait in Mexico
"Secretary Hairston Nielsen announcing that effective immediately. Certain asylum seekers who arrive in the US illegally from Mexico. We'll have to wait in Mexico during the course of their hearings her testimony earlier today before the house committee today, I am announcing historic measures to bring the situation under control effective immediately. The United States will begin the process of invoking section to thirty five b to see the immigration and nationality act once implemented individuals arriving in or entering the United States from Mexico illegally or without proper documentation may be returned to Mexico for the duration of their immigration proceedings. They will not be able to disappear into the United States. They will have to wait for a provable to come into the United States. If they are granted asylum by US judge. They will be welcomed into America. If they are not they will be removed to their home countries. Let me be clear we will undertake these steps consistent with our domestic and international legal obligations, including our humanitarian commitments. We have notified the Mexican government of our intended actions in response. Mexico has informed us that they will commit to implement essential measures on their side of the border. Give a civil Tate this process, by providing humanitarian assistance, they have announced that affected migrants will receive humanitarian visas to stay on Mexican soil. They will be given the ability to apply for work and be given other protections while they oh, wait a US legal determination in the coming days. We will discuss it. Mexico ways to ensure the limitation of our decision in a way that is transparent effective and ensures safe and orderly flow. Moreover as was announced by the United States and Mexico in December eighteen both countries are also committed to work on a comprehensive plan to reduce irregular migration across the region. This is something I have personally spent years pursuing behind the scenes, I had dozens of meetings with leaders from the northern triangle, convened, private sector executives and put forth proposals to address the root causes of illegal migration. We look forward to working with our Mexican partners to jointly address smuggling trafficking illegal cross border activity throughout Central America. Once and for all I cannot overstate the significance of these developments. We are taking lawful unilateral action to stop illegal entry now Mexico is taking its own appropriate actions in response, and our two countries have committed to a major regional plan to solve this crisis. Well, the department of homeland security is claiming that they've seen a two thousand percent increase in migrants. Calling it a credible. Fear of these. Trying to come into this country the first step to asylum and that asylum claims last year rising by nearly seventy percent compared to twenty sixteen. Meanwhile, the lawyers for the family and that seven year old Guatemalan girl who died in the custody of the customs and border protection. Office are calling for a thorough and independent review under the child's death echoing demands from a number of members of congress secretary Neil Neilson, speaking about her tragic death at today's hearing. But today, I want to focus on one of our core missions in particular, our duty to secure our borders and enforce our immigration laws. This is one of the highest priorities of the president the administration and my department. Indeed, it is among the most fundamental responsibility of any sovereign nation. We face a crisis at our border, a real serious and sustained crisis. We have tens of thousands of illegal aliens arriving at our doorstep every month, we have drugs criminals and violence spilling into our country every week, and we have smugglers, and traffickers who profit for human misery every single day by exploiting people who are seeking a better life saving them about our laws and feeling everything from sexual slavery for the smuggling of illicit goods this chain of human misery is no more evident than with the tragic death of seven year old Jacolin Kalmykian. Her death has deeply affected the border patrol agents involved in her case and the entire department. My heart goes out to her family and loved ones and our entire department mourns this tragedy, and then there was this often emotional exchange between Illinois democratic congressman Luis Gutierrez and the homeland secure. Secretary Kirsten Nielsen. But it is repugnant to me an astonishing to me that during Christmas. Call them the holiday seasons to be inclusive, but during Christmas because majority always wants to just call it Christmas during Christmas time in which we celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ. A Jesus Christ who has a plea or his life. With Mary and Joseph. Thank god. There wasn't a wall that stopped him from seeking refuge in Egypt. Thank god. That wall wasn't there. And thank God. There wasn't administration like this or he would have to have perished on the twenty eight and the day of innocence. When Herod ordered the murder of every child under two years of age. Maybe I haven't gone a lots of Bye-bye school. But I know that part thank God. Shame on everybody that separates children and allows them to stay at the other side of the border fearing death thing hunger free sickness shame on us for wearing our badge of Christianity during Christmas and allow the secretary to come here and lie. Thank you. Gentlemen, has expired secretary would we'd cared respond to any other than to say that calling me a liar fighting words, not a liar. We've never had a policy for family separation. I'm happy to walk the gentlemen, through it again policy of family separation with me that any family that I encountered in the interior. I would separate it would mean that any family that I found it eventually I would separate it would mean that every single family that I found illegally crossing. We would separate. We did. None of those what we did do is cold the laws that congress has passed and we prosecuted those who choose to come here illegally as far as not being compassionate. Let me just tell you what I have done. And of course, he can't be bothered to stay. So I'm happy to tell the rest of the committee. What we have done is. We have worked extensively with the northern triangle countries to find ways to help vulnerable populations as soon in their journey as possible. The current system puts them at the cans of those who prey on them and who abused them. So we've worked extensively to increase. Silence. Capacity to help them as soon as possible we've worked on child exploitation, including very unfortunate new crimes which are lied distance. Abused for somebody goes online at direction abuser. And how'd you use a child as they watch that is a crime that D H S investigates and prosecutes we have worked against traffickers. We have the first anti-smuggling anti-trafficking strategy, this January we do investigations, we help survivors. I take personal offense on behalf of the two hundred and forty thousand men and women of the department of homeland security. Thank you, sir. That was the department secretary testifying before the House Judiciary committee, by the way, the seven year old girl who died in Texas hospital. She died on December the eighth two days after being taken in by border patrol custody at a remote area along the New Mexico border. Her father claimed that they were denied the basics including water while in custody, the border patrol office

Welcome to the three fifty nine. I'm Ben FOX ribbon. I'm Alfred and I'm Scott Stein. Scott just published his review of the new ipad. Pro it's got a new pencil a new design a new face ide-. But it's also got a new price tag. Yes. Does sting is expensive? It goes up to eighteen ninety nine that's for all the specs and all the trimmings starts at seven ninety nine for the eleven inch. I looked at the twelve point nine inch version and have been living with for a little less than a week. Do you like it is it a so I think what I'm especially interested in is. Is it a computer replacement is it gonna replace affairs here? Yeah. What is it? What is it? Up replace. No, I don't think it's a very good laptop replacement because if you're looking for track pad support or mouse support it doesn't have that still, and it doesn't have the sort of web experience at the browser experience that you might expect that's on a Chromebook even that that allows for deeper web tools, but if you don't care about that if you have already been using an ipad or no tonight that pros bring to the table last year similar idea in the software hardware super blazing fast. And I think the design of it is really nicely refined. But that's kind of an apple trend of this year. Larger screens more refined higher price. Yeah. Good grief. The other thing. That's like the most aptly thing about this is that they came out with a new pencil that doesn't work with the old ipad. Yeah. Only works with this one. Yeah. So you have to buy new pencil, and it's one hundred thirty dollars hundred thirty dollars, which is ally. Now, the thing is if you've never gotten one of these before, and you get this now, the pencil charges and works, much, more seamlessly. It's great to have that. It's kind of like air pods. Nice instant available for you. Much better than that stabbing out the back, but to have to buy a whole new end, and I'd have any adapter for the old one is crazy. Okay. But okay, we're kind of focusing on some of the less, enjoyable parts of this. Did you like using it was it funded, you know, kind of draw with with the pencil where there are a lot of nice improvements. When when you're using it for what an ipad is for like all those are graphics everyday like a web razzing even writing I really like it. And I've traveled with an ipad a lot too is. I think to take notes with or just us on the train and for the amount of apps it has and for all that stuff. But what I don't like is when you have to start editing rave to start doing anything that gets more mission critical, which is the idea of pro that part. You can't take it with you. I don't think and file an entire story without a lot of headaches. So that part I don't like, but I did like the speed of it. I like the design refinement, there's more screen and less is. I wish you didn't cost more. Yeah. Yeah. No kidding. So we've also got. Even more election scams. We've got Alfred here to talk about them this one targeting vote for one one dot org. Tells you vote for one dot org is a voter information website, you can find out where to register to vote. What candidates you in your district stand for and what's on the ballot? Generally, John Oliver had promoted on a show last week tonight on October twenty eighth and I got a two thousand percent spike in traffic after that little promo and it two days after he promoted scammers set up a website called vote for one one dot com. Which is a common mistake that people would make most people are going dot com websites and this website, basically ran a online technical support scam. Which is if you ever go on a website. And it tells you like, hey, you've been infected with a virus? Please call this number to get it removed. And then you know, they essentially put a virus on your computer. If you do call that number, and then you acid you. They ask you to pay them to get rid of it was very common scheme. But now, they're using you know, curiosity around the mid term. Elections to basically use it as a watering hole type of attack where they know a lot of people are going to be looking for these election updates and things like that. And they're using that to their advantage. With a fake website. Do do we know if there are now more or less midterm related hacks or scams going on nowadays than maybe four years ago? I mean, it's unclear because anytime somebody gets hacked, it's not like there's somebody going out there say, hey, we did this or anything like that. But we do know that there have been. They're more vigilant about it. And there are a lot of examples about this so Microsoft in August talked about how they had gone rid of these websites that were basically doing the same thing. But it might have been for a lot more malicious purposes because so while the fake vote for on dot com website was more for financial gains the Russian websites that Microsoft had taken out more specifically like politically motivated. Great. If you want to read more about these stories, check us out on seen it. I'm Ben FOX urban. I'm offering I'm Scott Stein. Thanks for listening.
