The local film and music industry in the country could soon get a reprieve from pandemic-related losses after the House of Representatives passed a bill in its third and final reading that would grant them tax exemptions and benefits. subsidies.

Voting 195-0-0, lawmakers on Monday approved Bill No. 10541, or the “Movies and Live Events Recovery Act,” which would reduce the 10% entertainment tax imposed on movie theaters. to 5% of the gross receipts of the entrance fees.

Sic Transit Gloria Mundi

Season 1

Episode 10

Editor’s note

5 stars

Photo: Kailey Schwerman/Showtime

The worst thing in the world can happen to you, and you can find yourself in a situation where you yourself have done the worst thing possible, and even in this madness, this regret and this sorrow, you still have to get up in the morning and prepare- you breakfast. You still have to take a shower, choose a mask of normality for the day, and reintegrate into life as it happens around you. The surviving Yellowjackets navigate their adult lives on a kind of dissociative autopilot, and after spending that first season of the show trying to draw conclusions based on information handed out by utterly unreliable narrators, no one knows. still not know what really happened there in the desert of their crash site, or even what’s happening now beyond how it’s framed in their shell-shocked memories, but he There are a few facts that we know concretely: There was a plane crash. Some people died in this accident. And some people went on with their lives in those woods and outside of them. It can’t be said yet that some of the crash survivors have chosen not to be rescued and remain in this cabin at this time, but I wouldn’t doubt it. Especially in the case of Lottie Matthews. But dead or alive, saved or remaining, anybody completely out of this desert.

The morning after “Doomcoming,” we see the Yellowjackets picking up the pieces of the celebration that have slipped away from them under the influence of mushrooms and hormone-fueled hysteria. Misty, kicked out of the group for trying to poison Ben again and accidentally poisoning everyone else in the process, stands outside the cabin reading a book that caught my eye and sent me into a Google investigation. ‘one o’clock. I took a screenshot of the book and tried to zoom in to read the author’s name, but couldn’t. However, the title is The Wizard. Once I typed this title into Google, it was as if a whole world of context came to life before my eyes and directly related to the more mystical aspects of Yellow Jackets’ scenario and its symbolism. In 1965, a writer by the name of John Fowles published a book called The Wizard which, according to Wikipedia, is about “a young British graduate who teaches English on a small Greek island…and finds himself embroiled in the psychological delusions of a master trickster”. And there is another book called The Mage, or Celestial Intelligence by Francis Barrett, which was originally published in 1801 and details symbols which look a lot like the symbols carved into the trees, cabin floor, and painted red in a hidden room in Taissa’s basement above the severed head of their family dog. Francis Barrett was an occultist who also studied chemistry and metaphysics and was described as an eccentric who gave lessons in the magical arts outside his apartment. His most famous work, The Wizard, deals with “the natural magic of herbs and stones, magnetism, talismanic magic, alchemy, numerology, the elements”. Misty pulled all kinds of weird books out of that cabin they stayed in. Plant books, survival books, and now that kind of stuff is on her reading list. It makes me wonder if Lottie is the real Antler Queen or a puppet set in motion by Misty’s influence.

During their press rounds for their first season of yellow jackets, both Christine Ricci and Juliette Lewis mentioned that their characters are both master manipulators and not to trust a word they say or a thing they do. Juliette Lewis also said that her character, Natalie, was introduced to her as a chameleon, which she wished she had seen more of. However, this trait seems very visible in this finale, where she seems much softer and more amendable than in all previous episodes. All of this tells me that if the flashbacks on this show are memories these survivors have, and we can’t trust their memories, how do we know what’s real and what’s not? Well, that’s the fun. Is not it ?

This show’s ability to insert genuine LOL humor into horrific situations deserves an award, and this episode is a perfect example of that. Misty, Shauna, Natalie, and Taissa come together to solve problems together for the first time in 25 years, and as Shauna says while cutting up her dead boyfriend’s body, “It’s like riding a really gross, fucked up bike. ” Misty steals a bunch of lightproof oxygen bleach, gloves, and everything else they would need to dispose of the body without getting caught on the job. She’s about to do it under the guise of picking up her Tupperware container, which makes way for a great joke about cannibalism: “Are you planning on taking the leftovers home?” Once Adam is reduced enough, Misty offers to lend Shauna the shovel she keeps in her car (shudder) but makes sure to point out that she’ll want it back. She tells Shauna to put his torso in a suitcase and bury it in a specific park, then brings home Adam’s remains, head and hands, which she disposes of by putting them in the cremation coffin. of his newly deceased patient Gloria.

The death of Shauna’s boyfriend, with all the grim reality of its aftermath, seems to help Natalie come to terms with the fact that Travis probably committed suicide. We later learn that Lottie was the one who emptied his bank account after he died, so the symbols found where he hung make me think he ended up being involved in the same cult as Lottie, Misty, Van and Taissa were If we are to believe there is even a real cult out there and not just an imaginary cult – but it looks real enough when a group of people wearing cult pajamas and necklaces with the cabin symbol on them crash in Natalie’s hotel room and take it away just before she’s about to shoot herself in the head. The moment here is reminiscent of when Misty barged in to stop him from taking coke. Just in time. Maybe she had more surveillance in there than just the Ylang Ylang spy owl?

The last 20 minutes of this final shook me to such a degree that I haven’t felt since watching Midsommar for the first time. Jackie and Shauna discuss in the cabin Shauna’s betrayal with Jeff and Jackie’s prolonged mistreatment of Shauna as a little sidekick. Shauna kicks Jackie out of the cabin, and we see her struggling to make a fire on her own, which she never manages to do. In what I took for a double dream sequence, we see Shauna imagining that she went out to bring Jackie back from the cold, which she never did. We see Jackie living out her final moments as a beloved member of the team and the best friend Shauna has ever had. She’s drinking hot chocolate, Laura Lee is there to bring her, and all the while her physical body is outside dying in the cold, which feels like falling asleep.

• I couldn’t make out the exact phrase Lottie says at the very end after offering the bear heart to her strange tree stump, then Misty and Van knelt behind her. It sounded like “beautiful from darkness, set us free”, so I googled this and, to my horror, the lyrics to a Hillsong church song called “Tirelessly” has come. And you, Justin Bieber? And you?

• “Shut the fuck up, Doug. You are an adult. – Allie, living her best life as class president of 1996 for their 25th high school reunion.

• “Ladies, have fun! — Misty’s farewell to two fellow nurses, one of whom is clearly a man.

• “I just had the craziest case of deja vu!” — Misty, wringing out a bloody rag.

• “Do you quote Beaches to me right now? -Shauna.

• Jessica got what she deserved. Everyone knows that smoking kills.

• Taissa’s worship offering with her child’s doll and that poor dog’s head was metal as hell.

• When the “who’s that guy” from the intro credits appears during Jackie’s Midsommar stage and said, “I’m so glad you’re joining us, we’ve been waiting for you”, I almost had a heart attack. Is it the death of the attic? Or is he simply the personification of the “cult leader” Jackie’s dying brain has conjured up in his imagination?

• What happened to Javi the night of “Doomcoming”?

Violet Marie (Nardelli) Magee, 97, passed away peacefully surrounded by family and caregivers at her home in Baldwin, Kansas on January 11, 2022. Violet was born in Gross, Kansas to Mario Nardelli and Johanna (Zanona ) Nardelli, October 6, 1924. She graduated from Arcadia High School in 1941, earned her teaching certificate at Kansas State Teachers College in Pittsburgh, and began her first job at a one-room schoolhouse in St. Paul, Kansas, the “Isle”.

Violet’s life spoke music, like a tapestry. It was woven throughout his journey and defined his being. By using singing lessons to learn the English dialect, it was discovered that she had the chance to learn quickly. Violet was notably a talented pianist who could embellish music and teach others piano and voice. So gifted, her instructor accompanied her to Chicago for a debut of her talent and a musical tour. Earlier, she had rekindled a friendship with a classmate; a pilot returning from World War II, so she came home to her true love. She was married to Raymond Edward Magee on June 20, 1948 at St. Gabriel Catholic Church in Mulberry, Kansas during a thunderstorm. A tornado followed the ceremony, so the reception was held in the family’s basement by candlelight in the church.

Violet and Raymond celebrated 52 years of marriage and “were proud and grateful for five children and were honored that God had entrusted them to be their parents.” They spoke of kindness and their actions showed care and kindness. Their home was stocked with handmade cappelletti, cinnamon rolls, pies, meatballs, and breads that were available to the family and anyone who needed a place to vacation. There were piano students of all ages, often 30 a week, as well as scout meetings, homemade dance costumes, student recitals, singing lessons and choir rehearsals for mass and weddings.

Music made the moment better, making every occasion better, as Violet performed at graduations, civic symphony, community choir, school plays, as well as participating and judging piano and singing competitions. She volunteered at St. Mary’s as a music teacher. As organist of the Mary Queen of Angel Catholic Church for fifty years, generations remember Midnight Mass and Easter. She has performed at many weddings as well as funerals. Hundreds of thank you cards lined her albums, recalling her contribution to their ceremonies. Music was a big part of her life, and she was grateful for the opportunity, but most of all, she credited God for her talent.

Violet was a friend, neighbor, teacher and mentor. Most importantly, she was a wife, mother of 5, grandmother of 14 grandchildren, great-grandmother of 6 great-grandchildren, and a loving dog owner to her faithful O’Riley. .

Violet was predeceased by her husband, Raymond.

Survivors include a daughter, Sharon Magee-Minor and her husband, James, of Baldwin, Kansas; four sons, Dr. Raymond Daniel Magee, and his wife Connie, Topeka, Kansas, Dr. Lawrence Marion Magee and his wife, Michelle, Lawrence, Kansas, Mark Edward Magee, and his wife Cabrina, DeSoto, Kansas, and Dr. Shawn Michael Magee, and his wife Shirley Dawn, Topeka, Kansas.

What a wonderful difference she has made in the lives of many. “Always in our hearts”

Because the funeral mass is for family only, friends and neighbors can view Violet Wednesday, January 19 through Friday, January 21, from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. at Konantz-Cheney Funeral Home, Fort Scott, Kansas.

A private family service will be held at Mary Queen of Angels Catholic Church on January 22, 2022, where she served as organist for 50 years.

A private family burial service will follow at the Garden of Memories, Pittsburg, Kansas.

Expressions of sympathy in Violet’s memory may be directed to Mary Queen of Angels Music Ministry or Engineering Scholarship at Kansas University, Raymond and Violet Magee. Memorials may be left in the care of Konantz-Cheney Funeral Home, 15 West Wall, Fort Scott, Kansas, 66701. Condolences can be submitted to the online guestbook at konantz-cheney.com.

Saudi Arabia and UAE outperform UK and Germany for AI innovation: Report findings

RIYADH: Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates are uniquely positioned to drive innovation in artificial intelligence after the coronavirus pandemic, a new report has revealed.

Results of a YouGov survey commissioned by US analytics automation firm Alteryx showed that 50% of employees surveyed in both countries were now able to automate their daily tasks.

And 58% of employees surveyed said they were able to produce results faster through the use of analytics technology compared to five years ago.

In comparison, only 16% of workers in the UK and 24% in Germany said they could automate similar tasks, according to the report.

YouGov surveyed over 300 employees in Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates who worked with data at large companies.

However, the research found that inconsistently applied training programs were still hampering the region, with only existing experts – such as skilled data scientists – getting a vital upgrade. Highlighting the magnitude of this need, 97% of Gulf workers agreed that training was needed for all staff handling data.

Muhammad Khurram Khan, professor of cybersecurity at King Saud University in Riyadh, told Arab News: “The advancement of AI and automation has allowed machines to outperform human workers in more ways, which results in increased productivity, increased efficiency and reduced labor costs. ”

He said Alteryx’s findings show how Saudi Arabia and other Gulf countries have become tech-savvy and willing to embrace digital transformation.

“Saudi Arabia, as a tech pioneer, is harnessing the potential of AI with a plan to inject $135.2 billion into its economy by 2030, equivalent to 12.4% of product national gross domestic.

“This will not only make the Kingdom one of the world leaders in AI, but will also transform it into a knowledge-based and data-driven economy.

“Data and AI are at the heart of the Saudi Vision 2030, which has manifested through the initiatives and strategies recently launched and led by the Saudi Data and AI Authority. This will not only develop Saudi Arabia as a data and AI powerhouse, but also make it a global hub for research, development, business and innovation,” he added.

Khan pointed out that one of the stumbling blocks that can hinder AI-driven innovations is the upskilling and re-skilling of experts and professionals with state-of-the-art data science tools, techniques and knowledge and in analysis.

He said, “Therefore, it is imperative to launch modern education and training programs to prepare the workforce for new challenges in this field.”

Tauseef Ahmad, health informatics analyst at King Saud University, told Arab News: “It is inspiring to see the new findings with Saudi Arabia and the Gulf region adopting technology to update operations. daily. Recent years have seen the rapid adoption of updated technologies.

“The report showed that employee productivity grew 58% faster than five years ago, showing that these significant successes could never have been achieved without the help of data scientists. However, proper training and workshops would help cover the remaining 42% of employees.

“By providing a foundation of data skills to all employees and removing pressure from data and technology teams, business leaders can minimize the challenges they face,” he said.

While advances in AI and automation have enabled machines to outcompete human workers, Saudi smart apps such as Absher, Tawakkalna and Sehhaty have made things easier during the pandemic by offering innovative and intelligent interactive services. to meet the needs of the public.

The number of registered users of Absher exceeded 23 million last year, with the platform providing more than 300 electronic services for individuals, businesses, job seekers and government, while also enabling online transactions.

The Tawakkalna app, launched last year by Saudi authorities to help track COVID-19 infections, is available in 75 countries around the world. It has been designed around the prevention and management of COVID-19 and has a section to help people avoid entering areas with high incidence of cases. The app has been updated to show an individual’s COVID-19 health status.

The Saudi Ministry of Health’s Sehhaty app allows users to access online health information and medical services provided by health organizations across the Kingdom. These include scheduling appointments for COVID-19 tests and vaccines, self-assessment checks, vital signs updates, tracking prescribed medications, and collecting and sharing time off. of illness.

For viewers, Bob Saget will always be the widowed father of Full house or the host of America’s Funniest Home Videos.

But the man known as America’s Father has also enjoyed resounding success as a saucy stand-up comic.

Today, Saget was found dead in an Orlando hotel room at the age of 65. The cause of his death is still unknown but police have ruled out foul play or drugs.

Saget periodically performed stand-up comedies in Vancouver. Prior to a 2016 appearance at the River Rock Casino, he spoke to Georgia Straight contributor Guy MacPherson about his time playing Danny Tanner on Full house.

“Even all through that, I was dealing with the demons of playing two shoes and people who saw me as one,” Saget said at the time. “But I’ve always loved doing the show. I just wanted to be able to have other sides to me rather than people saying, ‘Oh my God, you’re Danny Tanner!’

“Once you play a certain character, that’s what people think you are. But if you’ve got a movie career where you play a murderer in one and you’re happy in another, then people see things differently. “

He wrote the books Dirty daddy in 2014 and Bob Saget’s Tales from the Crib in 1991 with Tony Hendra.

Fans of his stand-up routines always talk about his rather disgusting but fun version of a dirty joke in Aristocrats.

“I mean, I can outdo anyone, but actually I don’t like it,” Saget told MacPherson in 2014 before his Pemberton Music Festival appearance. “Even if you look Aristocrats, it was against my will. The most heinous things I said were just because Penn and Paul [directors Jillette and Provenza] made me do it. But I did. I am guilty !

Celebrities are demigods, revered on and off screen. There are so many celebrities who are considered hot but only really get ranked by one stratum of society.
This week on WhatsApp Conversation, we take a look at which celebrities are considered hot.

Tosin Awoniyi

Kim Kardashian is one of the hottest celebrities that I personally never find attractive. The reason is that. I never understand the hype surrounding it. She has an unattractive face. Whenever she dresses up, her features are fake and she generally looks like a doll. Her body shape is noticeably unnatural, and all of those surgeries that she performed years ago and still do have become disproportionate. Finally, for all her riches, she looks trashy in almost everything she wears.

Bolarinwa melody

I’m not drawn to men, but I don’t understand how anyone likes Russell Brand. He looks like a designer dog with all the inbred caricatures of technically appealing features. As Weird Al received the Handsome Squidward treatment. it looks like it smells awful too, but that’s pure speculation.

Amos Oni

Benedict Cumberbatch – I understand people like the voice. I also like him, at least, in Dr Strange. But that’s about how far it goes. He is not sexy or too macho as it is claimed. It’s a combination of talent, magnetic eyes, a voice like a jaguar crouching in a cello, and it’s an adorable blunder in real life. Objectively not hot, but all of these things combined can make the weird hot. For those weird people whose tastes and tastes of hot things tend to lean toward the odd rather than what’s seen as conventionally attractive, they might just find it appealing. But for me? Definitely not!

Victor Akanji

CARDI B, CARDI B, DEAR GOD! CARDI B. I can’t even understand how she became a celebrity in the first place. She’s supposed to be a rapper, but anyone who understands the basics of music will know that she’s not half a rapper. And his eyes, holy smoke. I wish I could meet her wardrobe master just to say a word to her.

David Alabi

Kylie Jenner. She ruined her face. Hope the lip fillers and crazy face makeup go out of style. The “natural” look is so much prettier in my opinion. The lip filling is so disgusting. It’s super noticeable too. You don’t look prettier, you don’t seem to have “full” lips; you look swollen or like you’ve missed plastic surgery or something. One of the girls from live-action Cowboy Bebop suffers from it and that’s all I can think of when she’s onscreen.

Philippe Azi

It will be a shock but yes Bolanle Ninalowo is for me. I know he’s all built up and stuff, but that doesn’t count as attractive to me. Maybe it’s the characters he’s playing, maybe it’s the macho vibes he’s trying so hard to put out; there is just something about him that turns me off. I do my best not to cringe when other people say how cool and chic he is. Maybe my idea of ​​cool is against the grain.

Kelvin Odulami

Burna boy

His music is good and what he has done for the afrobeats undoubtedly deserves a title of knight and honor as a member of the Order of Niger, but in terms of personality, arrogance and pride. that he brings to music doesn’t hurt him. lots of services. Could be better every step of the way without the arrogant outlook.

Babatunde Adekanmbi

MI Abaga is known to be a Nigerian singer-songwriter who has covered the music industry for over a decade. I mean in the days of 2baba, Plantashun Boyz. But I don’t like his style of music, although a quintessential rapper but I have a hard time getting along with the sound of his music. I think he should try as much as possible to better understand with the audience what he would like to hear from him. The majority of these artists are doing commercials to create more publicity for their songs and that is why upcoming artists sometimes have a hard time surfacing. MI Abaga is good but should do more market research.

Next week we’ll be talking about movies around the question, “What is this movie that you assume everyone has seen?” To be part of the next edition, send your response to 08133601345 on WhatsApp.

If you are just starting your investment journey, a good place to start is to reach out to leading companies in their respective industries. The tech sector is teeming with stocks that have generated fantastic returns for investors over the past decades, making it a good hunting ground for finding more quality companies to add to your portfolio.

Two leading tech stocks that can help strengthen your portfolio in 2022 and beyond are Spotify (NYSE: SPOT) and Wix.com (NASDAQ: WIX). Here’s why.

Spotify: the leader in audio streaming

Spotify’s service is used by hundreds of millions of people around the world. It offers funded, ad-free music listening with a library of tens of millions of songs, all from a mobile app. At the end of the third quarter, the company had 381 million monthly active users (MAU) in total and 172 million paying subscribers. These numbers gave Spotify an estimated 32% market share, which is No. 1 worldwide.

At present, Spotify is mainly known for music streaming. It is an attractive business, albeit with low gross margins (29.1% in the last quarter), which records subscriber growth of around 19% per year. However, Spotify has more ambitious plans to become a global player. audio platform, extending far beyond the music industry. The biggest part of that plan is for podcasts, which Spotify has invested heavily in over the past three to four years. This includes buying studios like The Ringer, licensing top shows like The Ringer Joe Rogan Experience and Call her daddy, and the purchase of two leading distribution platforms in Megaphone and Anchor.

To leverage these investments, Spotify has created a vibrant advertising market similar to YouTube, which is owned by Alphabetit’s google. It works like that. Podcasts owned by Spotify or distributed through Anchor or Megaphone can submit ad placements to the Spotify Audience Network (SPAN). On the other hand, advertisers send advertising clips, which SPAN then connects to those ad spaces, taking a share of the payment in the process. This opens up liquidity in the podcast advertising world, allowing even small shows to slowly start monetizing their work.

Spotify has an attractive financial growth profile. Music streaming is expected to continue to grow at a double-digit rate as the service expands to nearly every country in the world, and podcast advertising is expected to help accelerate the company’s advertising business. In the last quarter, ad revenue grew 75% year-over-year to $ 365 million, with much of that growth coming from podcasts. With SPAN still less than a year old and podcast audiences growing by around 15% year over year globally, Spotify has a chance to continue growing ad revenue at a high rate. double digits over the next five years. This may help Spotify grow its overall revenue from just over $ 10 billion (which it is currently) to tens of billions of dollars a year eventually, which would be great news for businesses. shareholders.

Wix.com: Easy-to-Use Website Builder

Wix is ​​one of the world’s leading website builders. Third parties estimate that its market share in the world is only 2.9%, which at first glance might make you think the company is not a leader in this industry. However, it is actually third in global market share, behind WordPress (which has a dominant lead at 65% market share) and Shopify (NYSE: SHOP) (6.6% market share). However, the company is rapidly gaining ground, from just 0.6% market share in 2017 to the 2.9% it holds today.

The main activity of the company is the creation of website subscriptions. This segment reached $ 992 million in annual recurring revenue (ARR) last quarter and enjoys high gross margins of 76%. In addition to pure website development, Wix is ​​expanding its business with three different strategies: e-commerce, payments, and specific vertical offerings.

Its ecommerce offerings are similar to Shopify where individuals / businesses with a Wix website can start selling products to visitors. The payments segment is mainly done through Wix Payments. Wix makes money on these trades by taking a share of each trade, typically around 2%. Management expects gross payment volume (GPV, or the dollar amount processed by Wix Payments) to reach $ 10 billion in 2021. Specific vertical offerings are aimed at different business niches. These include offers like Wix Fit, which helps fitness trainers, studios, and gyms manage their activities with ease.

Like Spotify, Wix stock has an attractive valuation relative to its growth profile. With a market cap of just $ 9 billion and gross profit of $ 760 million for the past 12 months, increasing 18% year on year, Wix is ​​trading at a significant discount to competitors like Shopify. If Wix can continue to gain market share globally while expanding its new services like e-commerce and payments, that gross margin figure will likely be much higher in five to 10 years. This makes Wix an attractive tech stock to buy in 2022 and beyond.

Pushpa: The Rise finally broke the sustained gross threshold of 300 crore, in large part thanks to the sustained activity it continues in the Hindi belt even after its collections, fantastic as they are, have run their course in d ‘other versions and markets. Allu Arjun’s Pushpa was easily one of the most anticipated movies of 2021, and the Boy lived up to expectations and more. The film, starring Rashmika Mandanna and Fahadh Faasil, and directed by Sukumar, with music by Devi Sri Prasad, hit the big screen on the big screen on December 17, 2021, and Pushpa has since taken the box office by storm. worldwide to end up as a real superhit in all national and foreign territories.

Twenty dollars might not seem like a lot to spend on a stock, but every portfolio has to start somewhere. And with free trade now available from many brokers and fractional shares being offered as an option, it is possible to buy a stock for just a few dollars. But where to start ?

I think building a strong equity base with growth potential is the right place to start with small investments. And now Apple (NASDAQ: AAPL), Global Coinbase (NASDAQ: COIN), and Spotify (NYSE: SPOT) are three great places to start putting a $ 20 investment to work.

1. Apple: the mega-capitalization action to start

It might not sound exciting to start investing in a company as large and established as Apple. But the company is a great choice as a centerpiece of any wallet, and it’s a cash-generating machine as well. You can see below that free cash flow continues to grow despite the maturation of the smartphone market as Apple has added software services and adjacent products to the mix.

There is no reason to believe that this growth trend will end. The iPhone is now widely regarded as a standard tool for businesses and consumers, and new technologies such as cryptocurrencies are being built on the iPhone, not replacing it. I think in the years to come we will see Apple products become more important and the cash flow will increase accordingly, which is why I like long-term inventory.

2. Coinbase Global: The crypto giant

Cryptocurrencies have received a lot of attention for their rapid increase in value over the past few years and the potentially disruptive nature of their technology. But at the center of the exposure of millions of people to cryptocurrency is Coinbase.

The company doesn’t really make money on the rise or fall of cryptocurrency, but rather on the number of transactions made on its network. And you can see below that the business has been good over the past year.

On the horizon is an NFT marketplace that already has millions of early user registrations. I think this could be an incredibly profitable business in the cryptocurrency arena, and that’s just one of its values ​​for investors.

Remember, Coinbase is also one of the biggest venture capitalists in the crypto industry. He holds a position in over 200 cryptocurrency companies. If the crypto tide continues to rise, it could be one of the biggest companies in the world at times.

3. Spotify: Own the ear

Spotify’s business started with music, but today it’s more than that. The company has spent hundreds of millions of dollars to build a massive podcast network that includes subscription, exclusive, and ad-supported podcasts. While a handful of music labels still control the music industry, Spotify is building a powerful position in podcasts.

It’s Spotify’s advertising network that sets it apart in podcasts and other audio formats like audiobooks. As Spotify builds a network of creators (podcasts and audiobooks) and a network of advertisers, its job is to connect the two and reduce revenue. This is similar to how AlphabetGoogle connects users and advertisers.

In the third quarter, advertising activity was only $ 323 million, but it was 75% more than a year ago, and the gross margin was 10.5%, compared to 1.6% one year ago. If Spotify’s strategy is successful, we should see revenues continue to grow rapidly and margins increase. And once the flywheel kicks in, the business is expected to attract more content creators, who will be incentivized to stay with a network that delivers high-value ads that they would have a hard time creating on their own.

Spotify’s business is not yet profitable, but I think it could be relatively early as ad revenue grows and margins grow. And if the company can continue to grow its suite of content, that will be great stock to own in the long run.

To start

Whether you invest $ 20 or $ 20,000, the important thing is to start investing. I think Apple, Coinbase, and Spotify are great places to start building a portfolio, with leading positions in their industries and improving finances.
