Hair care company SheaMoisture apologized Monday after cries of “whitewashing” over an ad it released last week. The family-owned company, founded in Harlem in 1991, has long prided itself for making hair products catering to women of color, with naturally coiled, kinky or curly hair. But SheaMoisture has come under fire for trying to broaden its consumer base by reaching out to white women in its new ad campaign. The promotional video features different women and — surpris...
The trade publication Variety is reporting that after a couple of years of failed attempts Netflix is entering the China market. This is a big deal, for multiple reasons. First, when Netflix recently announced a 130-country expansion, China wasn't one of them. The world's most populous nation and second largest economy is a notoriously complicated market for non-Chinese companies. It's exponentially more difficult for media and entertainment companies, given China's desire to control the content...

BMW is clearly not done thinking about hydrogen. While the detractors for hydrogen fuel are insatiable, BMW remains steadfast in its belief that hydrogen will be a fuel for the future. We already know that BMW is working on hydrogen fuel cells while it also works on battery technology, so that it can hedge its bets on both fuels and be prepared for whichever becomes more mainstream. Some of its work with hydrogen has to do with its refueling stations, a project that the brand’s Designwork...

MONEY-LOSING HOUSE OF HORRORSContrarian: The message around Cloudera's IPO, which is expected to price on Thursday after the market closes, has been yikes. The company was last valued at $4.1 billion; its share pricing values the company at $1.79 at the top of the proposed range. That's a significant discount. Yikes. But here's a different perspective from a site called IPO Candy: Don't evaluate the success of Cloudera's IPO based on its last round of funding in 2014, because that round, led by ...
NEW DELHI: The 25 CRPF jawans who were killed in a deadly Naxal ambush in Chhattisgarh's Sukma, were having lunch when a hail of bullets and grenades hit them fatally.

The Maoists squad "very discreetly with the aid of locals...

Raise your hand if your company isn't somehow involved with developing technology for autonomous vehicles. Okay, if your hand is up, quick question: What's wrong with you?! Don't you know you're nothing right now if you're not working on a self-driving car? (You can put your hand down now. I'm kidding.) To review, robotic vehicles not so long ago were the preserve of the Jetsons, locomotives and some other mass-transit trains, and various competitions funded by DARPA, the federal agency whose pr...
Grief doesn’t hit everybody the same way. And people deal with it differently. But Sheryl Sandberg, whose husband Dave Goldberg died unexpectedly in 2015, thinks there are some things all grieving people share. “The one thing that I’m so sure is a universal is when you’re hit with real grief, time slows down,” she said. “Every day is like a week.” Sandberg learned that, she thinks, from Joan Didion’s book on grief, The Year of Magical Thinking. &...
“Adults sometimes flinch a little to this day,” Sheryl Sandberg says, when she mentions her late husband Dave Goldberg’s name. “As if I’m reminding them that my husband died and it’s sad.” While the expressions are tiny and fleeting, Sandberg notices them. “They don’t even know they’re doing it. It’s just people’s reaction.” The Facebook Chief Operating Officer, who spoke extensively to TIME about her husband’s...
This is the beautiful mama Sarkodie aka. Mrs. Ewurama Aggrey.   Rumors are flying around in the entertainment circle that Sarkodie and Tracy will be saying “I do” sometime in June 2017.   Well, mama Sarkodie says it’s not true and that her son will marry in due time as she will not even allow him to just date someone’s daughter without the end goal being marriage.   And we are like “mama Sarkodie”: Image: Gifs Me In 2016, Sarkodie Dropped ...
Though it's inspired by grief, Facebook COO Sheryl Sandberg's latest book is as much about living a better life as it is about dealing with death. Co-written with Wharton professor Adam Grant, Option B is part Sandberg’s memoir of the days and weeks following the death of her husband Dave Goldberg, and part research-based exploration of overcoming adversity. It’s not exactly a follow-up to Lean In, but the Facebook COO does address her previous work in the new one, acknowledging its ...
