2023.03.29 15:50 BelleMari Positive Experience
My old car was vandalized, and since the make/model is being targeted, I needed to get a new car. I decided on a Toyota RAV4.
I tried a few local dealerships with no success - there were no new cars immediately available (estimating 6-8 months for delivery), and the used cars I found were requiring expensive add on packages that pushed them over the MSRP of the new cars. Most dealerships in my area refused to give an out-the-door price by phone or email, so I opted not to deal with them.
I initially placed an order at Carvana. I sold a car to them previously, and my sibling got a car from them, so I was pretty comfortable with that option. I did the initial paperwork, but upon closer inspection of the pictures, I believe it was missing features that were listed (such as heated seats), so I canceled the order.
I found my car on Vroom. I wasn’t familiar with the company and the reviews were pretty mixed, but I didn’t see another option for the car I wanted. I got a 2022 RAV4 with about 6,000 miles.
I placed the order and paid a $250 deposit on March 1st. I got an immediate call from a sales rep who gave me information about the next steps. I asked about delivery timeline, and she told me where my car was currently located, and stated it would take at least 14 days.
I did not use Vroom financing - I financed through my credit union. On March 2nd, I received documents to sign via DocuSign, and wired payment from my credit union.
Received confirmation that the wire was received on March 3rd.
No updates happened for a few days, but the status was updated to “shipped” on March 5th. Sadly, the tracking on the site did not provide any information or updates.
I emailed my hub (the Chicago hub) on March 9th asking for an ETA. I got a quick response via email from a staff member that the car was expected to arrive at the hub on 3/15.
On 3/15, I got an email that during inspection, there was an issue noted with the windows not moving up/down as expected, and the car was being assessed by a technician.
3/16 - received a call that the window issue was corrected by reprogramming something, and they wanted to schedule delivery for the next day!
3/17 - got a call the morning of delivery from the driver confirming that she would arrive in an hour. I got a text from her when she was about 15 minutes away.
I had the car inspected by an independent mechanic and the only recommendation was to rotate the tires. So far, everything is great with the new car!
I received a FedEx package yesterday with the documents needed to register - I will register the car myself.

2023.03.29 15:41 lineupofpeace About to receive a settlement check and worried about depositing it
I was injured in a bad car accident over a year ago with a delivery truck and have been out of work ever since while pursuing litigation. I’ve racked up a lot of unpaid bills and debt over that time just trying to stay afloat while not working.
My lawyer just called to tell me the check is in the mail and I should receive it soon, which is amazing.
I’m worried (probably irrationally) about depositing it and using the money right away. It’s about 100x what I have in my checking account currently - will the bank think this is fraud? I’ve been so poor and now all of a sudden I’m depositing a six figure check and pulling the funds out immediately to pay off creditors?
Please reassure me that I’m just being paranoid.

2023.03.29 15:24 kajata000 Where would you park up to pick someone up from the coach station?
I’m a relatively new driver, and I’m hoping to pick someone up from the city centre coach station this weekend.
Unfortunately it looks like they’re arriving at midday on Saturday, so I’m expecting town to be a bit rammed.
I don’t mind paying for parking if I have to, just want it to be an easy pick-up for me and for my visitor who doesn’t know Leeds too well.

The transaction itself was fairly smooth. Which isn't really surprising since I gave him an incredibly good deal on a Strider auto and I threw in prospect chrome for his PC as well.
He paid G&S PayPal (totally fine). But I'm new to PayPal (only second card sold via PayPal), so they keep stuff on hold. In this particular case my stuff is on hold till April 12. I updated tracking, both in a Paypal email to him, and on PM here. Asked him to confirm delivery on PayPal when he gets everything. He sent a thumbs up.
Fast forward a week, tracking confirms delivery on my end. No message, so let the night pass before getting ahold of him. He confirms everything looks great. I asked him to update on PayPal.
His response: "I don't know how to do that" Me: "You should have got a email tracking update from PayPal. Just confirm that." RobbyC: "Lol... If I got an email with a link, I deleted it. Lol." Me: "Ahh yeah, don't worry too much about email then. You can click on the transaction on Paypal and confirm from the site."
He didn't respond to that. Full ghost.
Not the end of the world, cause I will receive the money eventually. I just sold the card cheap cause I needed cash, and knowing PayPals holds, I wouldn't have considered a deal with RobbyC if I knew he wasnt even going to try and confirm delivery. On principle, there are other people far more deserving of cards for their PC.

2023.03.29 15:19 GeorgeTull DD Done Done It Now- Tony F’ed Up
About two weeks ago, DD made a major change in my market (Baton Rouge, LA). They made it so that all you see when you get an order is base pay. This was done at the same time that tip after was introduced here.
Before, a hidden tip was in orders showing $6.75. Now, all orders just show the base pay ($3.50, $5, whatever base is for distance).
Result- there is no way to cherry pick now. If you want to dash here, you basically take everything. That includes all of the $3 orders. You just never know which customers are decent people, and who sucks. Cherry picking is gone.
After over 3k deliveries, I had to change tactics. I usually hovered around a 20% AR. The first two days when this change came out, I didn’t know what was going on. I declined everything. My AR fell to 3%. My adjustment has been to literally take everything now. In the two weeks or so since, my AR has risen to 100%.
Result: I drive more and make less money and have to deal with way more pieces of shit.
Positive: I don’t sit around half the time anymore. Boredom no longer exists.
This could be the straw that breaks the system Tony. Sadly, based on this toxic as hell sub, I know that drivers aren’t capable of uniting to push back, but I don’t see how drivers are going to like making less money for more work.

2023.03.29 15:18 Small-Rhubarb-6560 Written off car payout - how long? What could be holding it up?
I've posted on here a couple of times now as I've been having an absolute nightmareish time with insurance. I was in a no-fault accident 4 weeks ago, other driver claimed responsibility and is getting charged for dangerous driving.
My car was written off 9 days ago and I accepted a valuation of £44K. The at-fault drivers insurance are paying for my written off car - I'm guessing because it was entirely her fault? I haven't heard anything since 9 days ago.
I'm off work recovering from injuries and with nothing better to do I've been chasing EVERYONE up but no one can help. The at-fault insurers won't speak to me because I'm not their customer. The incident management solutions team usually keep me on hold for 3 hours before telling me there's nothing they can do apart from send a few 'nudge' emails to the third party insurers. My own insurance have set me up with a personal injury claim and a courtesy car but they're not doing much else - again I suppose it's because they don't have to pay a penny, due to it being the dangerous drivers fault?
Anyway I guess my questions are - how long should the average person be waiting on getting paid out before they should be concerned? Can the insurance ever take back their valuation and pay me less? What could possibly be holding up the payout process? Do MY insurance pay for the dangerous drivers car getting written off, or are both cars being paid out for from her insurance?
I'm desperate to get my payout, put it down on a similar car, and move on with my life.

2023.03.29 15:17 Old-Zookeepergame511 Surge Rates
The idea of Surge Rates is such a ridiculous concept. You’re just forcing people to exploit a system that rewards scheduling at the very last moment.
Here’s a thought:
- Reward those that keep a Great or higher rating with the higher rates. This is going to help eliminate a lot of returns and subpar deliveries.
- Reward those who finish their deliveries ahead of time. Offer the higher rates first immediately after the end of their block. If a block ends at 8:00am and they finish at 7:00am….reward them with higher rate. This also eliminates the usefulness of bots. No point in a bot if you don’t finish your route on time or earlier.
The problem is….that’s there’s no true incentive for doing a good job. Finishing early or having a great or higher standing doesn’t really mean much. But if you offer those higher rates first and foremost you don’t have to worry about cancellations or lack of drivers. Let the people who wait until the last minute fight for scraps. I promise if you offer us a choice between 2% cash back or a decent paying route….i’m taking the route. This idea that you’re rewarding good driving partners with first block offers is shit if you’re offering it to them at the lowest possible rate.
Just my thoughts. I actually like driving flex. It’s a nice easy side paying gig. I just think they’re doing themselves a disservice on how they manage surge rates.

2023.03.29 15:11 CB_Cold My driving keeps getting worse
I couldn't get good enough to take the test by spring since I got my permit last year so I'm at least trying to get good enough to take it before summer. Sadly for some reason I drive like I'm not paying attention half the time, almost getting into accidents, speeding up during turns when I should slow down, or just driving too slow. I wanna hurry up and get good so I can get my license cuz I feel like the one guy in senior year that can't drive by himself. Why am I being a bad driver now because I'm not saying I was ever the best but I drove better months ago compared to now

: MEGA Delivery Time
What You Get
Phase 0) Digital Economics 101
The Digital Economics 101 module will open 1 week prior to the cohort start date.This is an onboarding module that will get you up to speed so we can get straight into the material.This will be required to finish before the start date.
- Gain a deep understanding of all of the pieces in the digital economy.
- Learn about the future of media and code — the front-end and backend of the internet — so you can focus your efforts.
- Understand digital leverage, distribution, no-code tools, and digital assets so you can take part in the mental & financial wealth transfer.
Phase 1) Creating A Meaningful Niche
Every day I hear people going on and on about trying to find their niche.I also hear people talking about how they don’t know how to combine what they love talking about
with what will sell.
You already have the answer. You just don’t have the clarity.
- Develop a long-term strategy to create your own niche — meaning you don’t have to worry about your “competition” playing status games.
- Discover your life’s work, curiosities, and obsessions. I see too many people that are uncertain about this for years.
- Cultivate and turn your vision, goals, and values into a brand that attracts an audience you love interacting with (and that will buy from you, and only you).
Phase 2) Content Strategy
There is one thing that separates those who make it in the digital economy and those who don’t.It’s the quality, articulation, and perceived originality
of their content.The content you post has to make sense
to the people you attract.Everyone has a different voice and tone that they resonate with. That they are congruent with and trust.
It has to change their thought patterns or behavior
— that’s what makes you memorable.That’s what separates you from the sea of people posting surface-level copy-cat style posts.Example and putting my money where my mouth is:
- Become an expert-level speaker or writer on the topics you care about.
- Never run out of content ideas for your posts or promotions (without using content templates — that’s how you stay a commodity).
- Create posts, blogs, tweets, images, and videos that resonate with other’s on a deep level. People will actually ask you how you got so good at what you do.
- Separate yourself from the ocean of B-tier creators that struggle to sell their products, services, andhave their ideas stick in the head of their audience.
- Implement our Epistemic Research Method — which is just a fancy way of saying scientific research method… but it’s for researching your mind to craft brilliant content and product ideas.
Phase 3) Crafting Your Offer
Most people are sitting on a goldmine of skills, experience, and knowledge (that they can use to help people 1-2 steps behind them
).That is what people pay for.Considering 95% of the market are beginners
… if you are good at something, you can help them get to your level (no matter how “basic” you think the information is
).Do you not watch basic content all day anyway? People don’t want new information, they want to be reminded of what works.
- Use our Minimum Viable Offer strategy to start monetizing immediately (and have something to improve over time, rather than procrastinating until it’s perfect).
- Have a strategy for reducing the time you spend working over time (as you build leverage and improve your offer).
- Know how to create your own customers from the audience you are building, instead of “finding” the right customer for your offer.
- Take the guesswork out of building coaching, consulting, or digital product offers.
Phase 4) Marketing Strategy
You aren’t making money because you aren’t promoting yourself or your offer.That is literally the only way to make money. Have something desirable and consistently
put it in front of peoples’ faces.In Phase 4, I will show you how to systemize, automate, and be consistent with simple promotions.You will be able to make money without having the chance of forgetting to do it (or letting fear of failure get in the way).
- Learn to sell on social media, in your writing, and across different platforms.
- Have consistent sales coming in while focusing on your meaningful message (no need to sound salesy all the time).
- Learn advanced automation strategies that you can implement at your own pace, especially once you validate your offer.
Bonus) The Creator Command Center
The Creator Command Center is a Notion template that houses all of the systems.This is how you will manage your brand, content, offer creation, marketing strategy, and systemized promotions for consistent sales.
Bonus) Live Product Build & Launch
In the first Digital Economics Cohort, I built out my course The 2 Hour Writer.I have videos showing how I build it with the strategies in phase 3 and 4.There is a bonus module that shows how I had an $85,000 launch that resulted in my first $100K month.I did this to prove the strategies inside Digital Economics work if you stick to the plan.And, this past Black Friday, I blew my that monthly high out of the water in 4 days.
That’s the power of these strategies if you stay consistent with your life’s work.

2023.03.29 14:41 StepwiseUndrape574 Mexican Drug Cartels Apparently Think Skilled GTA Online Players Make Great Meth Mules
I have no personal frame of reference for this opinion, but I imagine being a drug runner for the Mexican cartel (or any cartel) is loads more fun in a video game setting than in real life. The latter pays more I'm sure, but the stress, risk to life and limb, and persistent threat of jail time have me convinced to stick with legal employment. Not so for some GTA Online gamers who thought it a good idea to become meth mules.
It sounds wild (because it is), but apparently drug cartels sometimes use online multiplayer video games as a source for new blood. Back in October of last year, for example, Mexico's assistant public safety secretary, Ricardo Mejía, said a cartel recruiter purchased bus tickets for three teenagers between 11 and 14 years old.
The recruiter found the teens on Garena Free Fire, a popular online game, and offered them each $200 per week to serve as lookouts for the cartel. Authorities detained the teens before they boarded the bus, but Mejía told ABC News that other cartels have also recruited drug mules and lookouts through video games, including Call of Duty, Gears of War, and Grand Theft Auto V.
Now three months later, Forbes says it discovered that US officials have evidence showing GTA Online is also used as a recruitment tool for drug cartels.
It's not clear how long this has allegedly been going on, but according to the site, border agents stopped and inspected a Jeep Cherokee in Arizona last November and found almost 60 kilograms of methamphetamine. The driver, Alyssa Navarro, said a man named George first contacted her in GTA Online, through which they got to know each other over time.
Those in-game chats later pivoted over to Snapchat, where George raised the idea of being a runner, albeit for electronics to be sold in Mexico. Navarro claims she was offered up to $2,000 per trip, depending on the size of the load.
The only problem for Navarro is that the cartel allegedly hid meth in the Jeep's fuel tank. Authorities have charged Navarro with conspiracy to import and sell meth, and also possession, charges for which she has pleaded not guilty.
It remains to be seen how that case will turn out. Suffice to say, though, if someone online propositions you for an offer that seems too good to be true—or is outright illegal—it's best to politely decline.

2023.03.29 14:40 Massive_Level_7127 How to wear bone conduction headphones and How to Choose Them?
| || | submitted by Massive_Level_7127 to HeyNewGadget [link] [comments]
Did you know that a new type of headphones is popular among young people now? They are bone conduction headphones. They’re pretty cool, and a different type of headphone than all the ones that came before it. If you haven’t read it, follow my article to find out.
What are bone conduction headphones? Bone conduction headphones are headphones in which the sound generating unit is attached to temples
. Their vocal units convert sound into mechanical vibrations, which cause bone vibrations, and transmit the sound to the auditory nerve. They are vastly different from common headphones. Ordinary headphones are air conduction, while the sound unit of them is a horn.
When you play music, their horns convert the sound into sound waves, which travel through the air in your ear to your eardrum, causing the eardrum to vibrate and then send the sound to the auditory nerve, where it is finally heard by your ear. Bone conduction headphones convert sound into mechanical vibration when making sound, and directly transmit the vibration to the auditory nerve of the inner ear through the bone without passing through the air and tympanic membrane. Because of this difference, the way Bluetooth bone conduction headphones are worn is also different.
They don’t need to be plugged into the ear, but hang on the pinna so that the sound unit is pressed against the temple. Of course, there is another type of clip-on bone conduction headphones, which are clipped to the ear when worn, and then the sound unit will stick to your auricle. But the vocalization and delivery of the sound is the same for both.
The unique wearing method of Bluetooth bone conduction headphones also brings many advantages. The most important thing is that they are very safe
How to wear bone conduction headphones？
There are two mainstream wearing methods of bone conduction headphones. One is the hanging-ear method, which is the most common method suitable for sports enthusiasts such as runners,cyclist. Most hanging-ear bone conduction headphones are waterproof, so swimmers can wear the headphones. In addition, drivers can also use hanging-ear bone conduction headphones when answering calls.
There is also another wearing methods of bone conduction headphones,which it head-wearing method.
This form of headphones can also be used for sports, daily entertainment, etc.. But some people do not like the large size of this kind of headphones, so head-wearing bone conduction headphones are relatively rare. However, it is worth mentioning that since this kind of earphone is close to the skin when wearing, its sound transmission efficiency is also higher, so its sound quality is slightly better than bone conduction headphones of other wearing methods.
How to choose bone conduction headphones?
Bone conduction headphones are becoming more and more popular among young people,and more and more brands join this field.So, how to choose the most appropriate headphones? In my opinion, those brands that have accumulated technology in this field are trustworthy. Yor should pay attention to the 3 key points:Sound quality, sound leakage reduction and safety.
Here are five best bone conduction headphones for you all.
1 Wissonly Hi Runner bone conduction headphones Recommended reason: Wissonly is one of the few bone conduction headphone brands that have mastered bone conduction vibrator technology,
and one of the few brands in the industry that have sustained experience in using bone conduction technology to protect hearing. Wissonly Hi Runner advocate a healthy way to listen. They perfectly combine the principles of healthy hearing and bone conduction sound transmission, to create a non-in-ear and non-ear-damaging bone conduction headphone which can effectively protect hearing.
Due to the particularity of the technical principle, sound quality of bone conduction headphones is more difficult to be improved . To this end, Wissonly Hi Runner subverts the traditional sound quality scheme, makes a breakthrough to use the large-size bone conduction vibrator.
Through structural optimization, the effective vibration area of the vibrator is increased by 35%, thereby improving the vibrator sound efficiency, making the sound more powerful.It also optimizing the direction of sound transmission, reducing sound loss during sound transmission, and making the sound more concentrated. The skin-friendly silicone material of the Wissonly Hi Runner body is a product that can be in contact with the skin for a long time
. It is naturally a better choice and feels good to the touch. Because the entire headphone is made of skin-friendly material, it is very comfortable to wear. Even if you wear glasses, you can still hang it firmly on your ears. The headphone frame uses memory titanium, which has the advantage of being stretchable and lightweight.
2. Philips A6606 bone conduction headphones Recommended reason:
Philips A6606 has a good appearance, and its strange dark gray shape has a special sense of technology. The novel rear-hanging design is sporty. Its surface is made of silica gel, which is delicate and smooth to the touch, and its interface is also very flat. There is no doubt about Philips’ manufacturing process. The headphones’ body is made of waterproof silica gel and titanium alloy, so its weight is only 36g, and it feels very light to use. Its frame is made of memory titanium alloy, which can be stretched and bent repeatedly. It is specially designed for fun run mode and equipped with LED fun run warning lights.
Philips’ products are still trustworthy, but the price is a little expensive and the cost performance is average.
3.AfterShokz OPENRUN PRO bone conduction headphones Recommended reason:
The light body weighs only 28g, it is like no weight in the hand, and it will not feel any weight when hanging on ears. Because of the characteristics of bone conduction headphones, there is no need to be stuffed into the ears or wrap the ears. And there will be no swelling or squeezing feeling when worn for a long time, which keeps the ears fresh and breathable. Its sound leakage reduction technology is also good, which can effectively suppress sound leakage and better protect personal privacy. It has a high-strength titanium alloy rear hanger. Before each pair of headphones leaves the factory, the official will carry out repeated tests to ensure that the quality passes. The body has high toughness, and it can be restored to its original shape when bent at will. You can toss it during the exercise, and don’t have to worry about the damage caused by bending of the headphones.
4.Earsopen peace tw-1 bone conduction headphones Recommended reason:
Peace tw-1 is different from the traditional bone conduction headphones, and it adopts a unique ear clip form, which has certain firmness. However, the wearing process is a bit complicated, and it is impossible to finish wearing with one hand. IP67 waterproof level can easily cope with rainy days, but it is not suitable for swimming. The Bluetooth version of 5.0 keeps the connection stable during music transmission.
5 Nank Runner CC3 bone conduction headphones Recommended reason:
Runner CC3 are equipped with the latest Bluetooth 5.3 chip. They can achieve stable connection during exercise, and even when you are running in the mountains with poor signal, there will be no disconnection with them.
They are also equipped with MP3 mode with 4G built-in memory, which helps you to enjoy music when the phone is not with you. The Runner CC3 weight 28g, and is compact and very comfortable to wear.
Among the above five bone conduction headphones, Wissonly and Philips are most recommended. These two brands have the strongest technical strength and the best product quality. Among the two brands, Wissonly will have a higher cost performance.
2023.03.29 14:30 Catvac-u-um_adnase Agriculture News for March 29, 2023—CVP deliveries hit 80% * Bills eye SoCal water grabs and salinity intrusion * Farm groups look to kill new H-2A regs
Irrigation districts to get 80% CVP allocation
The Bureau of Reclamation again followed in the state’s footsteps on Tuesday. The agency updated water allocations for the Central Valley Project to leapfrog past the State Water Project.
Contractors both north and south of the Delta will get 80% of their allocations, up from just 35% in February. Earlier this month, the bureau increased Class 2 Friant contractors from 20% to 70%.
Jose Gutierrez, interim general manager of the Westlands Water District, said this will help farmers “recuperate, hire and retain staff, and bolster their ability to continue feeding the world.” While many farmers have already made planting decisions, this could reduce the strain on groundwater aquifers with irrigation, he added.
Federico Barajas, executive director of the San Luis & Delta-Mendota Water Authority, said investments in water storage and conveyance would enable the state to implement SGMA without harming San Joaquin Valley communities.

Rocks, not water, would fight Delta salinity under new bill
Asm. Jasmeet Bains of Delano has filed a measure that would require the state to construct physical barriers to prevent saltwater intrusion in the Delta.
The salinity jeopardizes farms and drinking water and shuts off pumping operations for water projects. For the last two years, the state has flushed out the salinity using freshwater flows and a temporary rock wall at one pinch point.
“Water is too precious a resource to use so wastefully,” said Bains. “It’s time for the state to engineer a better solution.”
In her first weeks in office, the medical doctor has come to defend agriculture in the Capitol. Juxtaposing SGMA impacts with a major bank collapse, she argued that “while Silicon Valley investors get bailed out, San Joaquin Valley farmers get hosed.”
Colorado Drought: Bains has authored another bill seeking to protect ag from a Southern California water grab.
It would prevent Los Angeles and its powerful water district from increasing imports from the San Joaquin Valley and Delta to offset a potential federal order for water conservation along the Colorado River.
Bains called LA’s thirst insatiable and argued “they need to learn to live within their water means.” She added that green lawns in the city are “simply not as important as growing food.”
What it means: The bill rekindles an old north-south rivalry over how much water the state should dedicate to building cities in an arid region.
Farm groups call for challenge to H-2A rule
Farm groups are urging congressional leaders to allow votes on killing the Labor Department’s changes to the way wage rates for H-2A workers are determined. The rule could require farms to pay higher wages to some H-2A employees.
The new regulation “comes at a time when American farmers are reeling due to record high costs of production that have translated into thin and even negative margins, conditions the new regulation will greatly exacerbate. Moreover, the regulation further complicates an already complex program and creates legal uncertainty for farmers who comply with requirements in good faith,” the Ag Workforce Coalition says in a letter to House and Senate leaders.
Under the rule, the Labor Department will calculate the H-2A wage rates for field workers based on USDA’s Farm Labor Survey of farmworker wages. But wage rates for some occupations, including truck drivers as well as managers and supervisors on farms, will be calculated based on a broader wage survey conducted by the Bureau of Labor Statistics.
Former FDA official says planned reorganization won’t solve issues
A former top Food and Drug Administration official testified Tuesday that last year's infant formula supply crisis was a “preventable tragedy,” and the Food and Drug Administration’s proposed reorganizational changes fall short of the needed overhaul to improve FDA’s ability to prevent and respond to food safety concerns.
Frank Yiannas, former FDA deputy commissioner in the Office of Food Policy and Response, departed the FDA in January in part over frustration about its leadership structure. On Tuesday, he told a House Oversight Committee hearing the current oversight system is still short of what is needed.
“The nation remains one outbreak, one tornado, flood or cyberattack away from finding itself in a similar place to that of February 17, 2022,” Yiannas said.

Haaland grilled by Republicans on critical minerals
Interior Secretary Deb Haaland sparred with House Republicans Tuesday over U.S. dependence on China for critical minerals. During an appropriations hearing, she said the U.S. Geological Survey is working to identify areas containing critical minerals.
China processes and refines most of the cobalt, lithium, rare earths and other critical minerals in the market, the White House noted last year. Those minerals are “key inputs in clean energy technologies like batteries, electric vehicles, wind turbines, and solar panels.”
By the way: The chairman of the House Interior-Environment Appropriations Subcommittee, Mike Simpson, R-Idaho, said that reverting to 2022 funding levels, as proposed by some House Republicans, would mean “devastation” for the departments of Energy and Interior.
House Ag looks to schedule Regan ‘soon as we can’
EPA Administrator Michael Regan is going to take his turn before the House Ag Committee, where he’s certain to face a broad range of questions, from “waters of the U.S.” to biofuel policy and pesticide regulation.
Ag Committee Chairman Glenn “GT” Thompson, R-Pa., announced during a hearing Tuesday with Ag Secretary Tom Vilsack that Regan had agreed to appear before the committee.
Thompson told reporters later that there is no date set yet for Regan’s hearing. “I'm hoping that we can squeeze it in as soon as we can,” Thompson said.
By the way: Regan told a House Appropriations subcommittee Tuesday that the administration’s “waters of the U.S.” rule might have to be modified based on the upcoming Supreme Court decision in the Sackett v. EPA case.
“I think we are ahead of the curve in terms of having the framework for moving forward,” Regan said. "The Sackett case may or may not have some impact on that. Whatever that ruling is, we will build it in and continue to move in addition to those exemptions that we built in."
She said it:
“Problem plus money does not equal solution.” — California Lieutenant Governor Eleni Kounalakis, in a discussion at the California Farm Bureau’s Capitol Ag Conference on Tuesday.

"Come on, baby, let's start anew," Alibaba (BABA) sang in a new hit-single released on Tuesday, with most believing it won't be hard to pull off for the company. Investors were certainly "down dooby doo down down" for the move, sending shares of the Chinese tech giant soaring 14% during the session. Chinese tech stocks rose in tandem, including JD.com (JD), NetEase (NTES) and Tencent (OTCPK:TCEHY), as well as Japanese tech conglomerate SoftBank (OTCPK:SFTBY), which was one of Alibaba's key early investors.
The plan: Alibaba will split into six different units covering e-commerce, media and the cloud, with the goal of boosting each group's individual business value. They include: 1) Cloud Intelligence, 2) Taobao Tmall Business, 3) Local Services, 4) Global Digital Business, 5) Cainiao Smart Logistics, and 6) Digital Media and Entertainment. "Under this plan, we will have six major business groups and other investments, each to be independently managed by its own chief executive officer and board of directors," according to a regulatory filing. Aside from Taobao Tmall Business, which will remain fully owned by Alibaba (BABA), each of the other business groups "will also have the flexibility to raise outside capital and potentially to seek its own IPO."
"With such an obvious and unexpected catalyst on our hands, it pays to explore what exactly this new development could do for BABA shareholders," wrote SA contributor Growth at a Good Price. He explores how to play the restructuring, while other SA authors are also bullish on the announcement. See Alibaba Drops A Bombshell by Investing Group author Jonathan Weber, as well as Alibaba Group: A Great Move Aimed At Boosting Shareholder Value by Daniel Jones.
Go deeper: The reorganization follows years-long headwinds for Alibaba shares, including a slowing economy in China and geopolitical tensions, as well as a broad tech selloff and sweeping crackdown on Chinese internet companies. In fact, the announcement came a day after the company's legendary founder, Jack Ma, made his first appearance in mainland China after several months overseas, and has generally been out of the public eye since he gave a speech in 2020 that criticized Beijing's financial and business regulators. It also raises questions about what may happen with the suspended record IPO of Ant Group, which operates one of China's biggest mobile pay apps called Alipay (Alibaba owns 33% of Ant).

Apple (AAPL) has officially released its "Buy Now, Pay Later" service in the U.S., permitting purchase payments over time with no fees and no interest. Select users can apply for Apple Pay Later loans of $50 to $1,000, which can be managed in Apple Wallet and used for both online and in-app merchants that accept Apple Pay. The solution was initially planned to be released in September 2022 as part of iOS 16, before technical challenges delayed the launch, though Apple now hopes to offer it to all eligible users in the months ahead. Mastercard (MA) and Goldman Sachs (GS) will be helping out Apple with payment credentials, while rival BNPL provider Affirm (AFRM) tumbled on the latest news. Is a bank charter for Apple in the cards? (49 comments)
Going after the apes
AMC Entertainment (AMC) was up 10% shortly before Tuesday's market close on a report that Amazon (AMZN) was exploring an acquisition of the beleaguered movie-theater chain. Jeff Bezos has been said to organize his entertainment lieutenants and investment advisers to consider such an acquisition, where hundreds of theaters would be used for a number of purposes like promoting Amazon Prime's original films, cross-selling grocery delivery and even serving as product distribution hubs. AMC had a market capitalization of about $2.6B after Tuesday's jump, though it has slid nearly 72% over the past year. Bezos might also want to wait and see if the stock continues to erode, or jump on a potential bankruptcy. (110 comments)
Bankcrisis "In light of the new challenges and priorities," UBS (UBS) is bringing back Sergio Ermotti, who rebuilt and led the bank (from 2011 to 2020) in the aftermath of the global financial crisis. The move will help UBS figure out how to integrate Credit Suisse (CS) into its operations after conducting an emergency rescue of the troubled lender for $3.25B in stock. Ermotti's first challenges will include laying off thousands of staff, rethinking its business divisions and shoring up the confidence of investors, clients and the overall banking sector.
