The 199 days that doomed Quibi: How $1.75 billion couldn't save the most hyped app of the year from a pandemic and apathetic users

Jeffrey Katzenberg and Meg Whitman merged Hollywood and Silicon Valley connections, but it wasn’t enough to save Quibi. Taylor Jewell/Invision/AP; Richard Drew/AP; Shayanne Gal/Business InsiderMobile content app Quibi, backed by $1.75 billion and some of Hollywood’s top names, launched in April and died in October.  Jeffrey Katzenberg and Meg Whitman led the company, which missed warning signs and took costly missteps in the leadup to and after its debut.  Business Insider tracked the buildup to and aftermath of Quibi’s ill-fated launch.  Visit Business Insider’s homepage for more stories. With just a few weeks to go until one of the biggest product launches in their careers, Jeffrey Katzenberg and Meg Whitman met alone for several hours.  The two veteran business executives, representing the top echelons of Hollywood and Silicon Valley, were suddenly forced to discuss the future of the project they’d worked on — and promoted — almost constantly for the past two years.  Their vision for a game-changing streaming video service called Quibi had raised a stunning $1.75 billion in capital.

Albion Castle in San Francisco has survived two big earthquakes in the city’s history, and its underground caves could save the city in the event of an emergency. Hidden in San Francisco’s Bayview neighborhood is a four-story castle with underground caves that was once home to the Albion Ale & Porter Brewery.Albion Castle was built in 1870 as a personal residence and brewery, with a natural underground aquifer producing 10,000 gallons of water daily and providing the water needed for ale production.It’s since been a water-bottling company, private residence, a tech support center for the blog Laughing Squid, and has even hosted smaller events like a Google dinner party and a lavish Halloween bash.

cCARE is on a Myth-Busting Mission to Boost Breast Cancer Awareness

FRESNO, Calif., Oct. 24, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — Perhaps no disease has garnered more attention in the past couple of decades than breast cancer, which is very gratifying to surgical oncologist and breast cancer expert Dr. Casandra Anderson of cCARE in Fresno. Even so, she is keenly aware that the millions of women concerned about this disease, of which one in eight of them will get in their lifetime, are often misinformed about important specifics in prevention and treatment. “With many women and even some men fearing the disease, I field a lot of questions and know that misinformation about breast cancer and its treatment is definitely out there,” says Dr. Anderson. “Just as focuses like Breast Cancer Awareness Month have helped us steadily decrease deaths from the disease, we know that clearing up ongoing misconceptions can save more lives and cure some of the fears that come with the unknown and misunderstood.” Here are some common myths about breast cancer Dr. Anderson’s patients have. Breast cancer is painful.
