Weekly Macro Summary

Weekly Macro Summary

SubscribeTHIS IS NOT INVESTMENT ADVICE. Please speak with a registered investment advisor or other qualified financial professional before making any investment decisions.While global economic activity remains weak relative to pre-virus levels, data and high frequency indicators continue to rebound strongly. Levels of risk assets suggest a sustained recovery while sentiment measures and barometers of implied volatility suggest investors are suspicious of the recent performance in asset markets. This divergence between strong market performance and negative investor sentiment is unusual....

Asia Undercovered Media Analysis #1: Miscovering Chinese Apps

Asia Undercovered Media Analysis #1: Miscovering Chinese Apps

SubscribeTo ban, or not to ban, TikTok. This debate, on the popular Chinese streaming video app, is dominating United States tech media now. But go back just a year to 2019, and you’ll find that coverage of Chinese apps, like TikTok, but also WeChat, UC Browser, Alipay, was basically non-existent. This is despite their parent companies – Tencent, Alibaba, Bytedance, Baidu – were already among the most wealthy tech companies in the world.Moreover, it has been some time that these apps became popular outside of China. In 2019, in India were Chinese, with Chinese apps also in Brazil,...

So *that's* how Breitbart is still making money

SubscribeWelcome back to BRANDED, the newsletter exploring how marketers broke society (and how we can fix it).We have some big news this week: For the past few years, we’ve all believed that not funding hate is as easy as blocking bad sites. That you can avoid the risks of being viewed next to terrorist propaganda or hate speech by simply opting out.But nothing about digital advertising is straightforward.Last month, Zach Edwards, a data supply researcher, reached out to us with a tip. He told us he had found evidence that Breitbart was continuing to siphon advertising dollars from...

What Spotify, NYT and News Corp earnings tell us about the state of journalism

What Spotify, NYT and News Corp earnings tell us about the state of journalism

SubscribeWe should start to look at major podcast outlets more like book publishers. There is a mix of big-name celebrity signings, ever-green non-fiction content (for books it’s cooking, for podcasts its mindfulness) and independently produced content. A point in case would be Michelle Obama, who recently launched her new podcast, Higher Ground, exclusively on Spotify. The former First Lady has also released her own playlist to promote the pod. Not only does Spotify attract potential new subscribers to its platform via Obama’s involvement, but her content is also regularly aggregated and...

Playoff Post-Mortem: Pittsburgh Penguins

Playoff Post-Mortem: Pittsburgh Penguins

SubscribeThere are a lot of answers to that question. The first one is the simplest, and it’s the one that certain members of the Penguins had better hope sticks for the sake of their job security: they ran into a hot goalie. Carey Price turned back the clock big time, stopping at least a goal above expected in three of the four games, including a whopping 2.7 in game one. Some analysts (including me) ridiculed those who said that Price was a guaranteed x-factor, but he played at a level he hadn’t reached since 2016. The second one is that the Penguins stormed out to an excellent start in...

I’m the reason the so-called FBI  at the center of Spygate, Stefan Halper, met Carter Page, the alleged  in Russiagate’s Crossfire Hurricane investigation. On May 19, 2018, this realization blindsided me in London as I was about to fly out for my wedding. ,  and other sources had outed my PhD supervisor, Stefan Halper, as a spy known to the UK’s MI6 intelligence service as It didn’t seem real.

Putting Down the Badge and Picking Up the Pen 

Putting Down the Badge and Picking Up the Pen 

SubscribeI’ve recently made some pretty significant changes in my life.  First off, for the big reveal, I’ve been working as a Deputy Sheriff for Salt Lake County for the last four years. For obvious reasons, I’ve maintained a pretty solid professional separation between my job in law enforcement and my political writings. I went into the profession both to make use of my skills from six years in the Army National Guard, but also because I was raised by a police officer, and I have the utmost respect for the honor and dignity of the profession. But as my writing has gained more attention...

SubscribeYear-in year-out the Carolina Hurricanes are near the top of the NHL when it comes to puck possession metrics such as Corsi% or Expected Goals %.

My GPT-3 Blog Got 26 Thousand Visitors in 2 Weeks

Some clever have even figured out how to get it to generate code from descriptions. Yet, I think that the best use cases lie outside of tech. I believe that GPT-3 has the potential to change the way we write. But I can’t just tell that to people, most of them won’t believe it.

Not on the record royals
