Financial website Quartz may have been sold for $1, sources say

When Quartz co-founder and CEO Zach Seward announced on Sunday that had he purchased his struggling news site from its corporate owners, the terms of the deal weren’t disclosed.

But sources tell The Post that Tokyo-based Uzabase, the financial media and information firm that bought Quartz from Atlantic Media in July 2018, were looking to sell it for a pittance.

Deal terms offered in the weeks leading up to Sunday sale to Seward, sources said, called for potential new owners to pay just $1 for the struggling financial news website. Uzabase was also offering a $6 million personal loan to the company.

In addition to Seward, the new ownership includes Quartz’s editor-in-chief Katherine Bell, who joined in December from Barron’s and who declined to comment on how much Quartz cost.

“We’re not commenting on the terms of the deal,” Bell said in an interview with Media Ink Tuesday. But, she

Voters cast their vote at the Downtown West early voting location in Knoxville, Tenn., on the first day of early voting in Tennessee on Wednesday, Oct. 14, 2020.

Democrat Joe Biden may have been declared the projected victor of the 2020 presidential election on Saturday, after he secured the necessary 270 electoral votes, but that has not stopped lawsuits filed by the Trump campaign nor claims on social media from disputing Biden’s status as president-elect. 

“Just got word that they pulled Pennsylvania’s electoral votes from Biden today after the Supreme Court hearing on voting fraud!” wrote Facebook user Christa Elisha in a Nov. 9 post.

Texas health care providers can register for Covid-19 vaccine

Hospitals and pharmacists can register to be among the first to receive the vaccine once approved

AUSTIN, Texas — A Covid-19 vaccine is still weeks away from approval, but Texas Governor Greg Abbott is encouraging health care providers across the state to enroll in the DSHS immunization program.

The online portal allows hospitals, medical facilities, pharmacies and long-term care facilities to register “to be considered” to receive the Covid-19 vaccine once approved. 

“While potential COVID-19 vaccines continue to undergo clinical trials, the State of Texas is taking a proactive approach to ensure the vaccine is distributed as quickly as possible once available,” Governor Abbott said in a news release. “Providing Texans with access to a voluntary vaccine and efficiently administering the immunization will be essential to containing COVID-19 and protecting the health of our communities.”

Why Every Small Business Owner Needs to Pay Attention to SEO

Search Engine Optimization (SEO) has become a bit of a buzzword these days, prompting many naïve business owners to disregard its importance in the grand scheme of things. But the truth is that it’s more important than ever these days, with the heavy prevalence
of the internet and the expansion of various technologies into our daily lives. Especially for a small business or startup, neglecting to pay attention to SEO can only lead to trouble.

Simply Being on the Market Is Not Enough

One of the biggest mistakes you could make when setting up a new company is to follow the old cliché of “if you build it, they will come”. That may have been true decades ago and in very specific markets, but it’s completely disconnected from the reality
of today. There is no shortage of examples of companies with an otherwise solid product idea and presentation, which have

Studies outline key ethical questions surrounding brain-computer interface tech

Studies outline key ethical questions surrounding brain-computer interface tech

Brain-computer interface (BCI) technologies are no longer hypothetical, yet there are fundamental aspects of the technology that remain unaddressed by both ethicists and policy-makers. Two new papers address these issues by outlining the outstanding ethical issues, offering guidance for addressing those issues, and offering particular insight into the field of BCI tech for cognitive enhancement.

“BCI technologies are devices that detect brain signals conveying intention and translates them into executable output by a computer,” says Allen Coin, a graduate student at North Carolina State University and lead author of both papers. “BCI technologies can also provide feedback to the user, reflecting whether he or she attained a goal or completed a desired action.”

“BCI devices can be non-invasive devices that users wear, or they can be invasive devices, which are surgically implanted,” says Veljko Dubljević, an assistant professor in NC State’s Science, Technology & Society program and

Apple has revealed a new 13-inch MacBook Pro that includes its own “M1” chip.

It is the third computer Apple revealed with the new processor, following the Mac Mini and new MacBook Air.

Just like the other new computers, the new MacBook Pro is the same price as the previous 13-inch version, costing $1,099.

It can be pre-ordered from today and will be available next week.

Like those other two computers, the 13-inch MacBook Pro looks the same as its predecessor on the outside, and Apple will continue to sell a version of the computer with an Intel processor.

But just as with those other two computers, the introduction of Apple’s M1 means that the computer is much faster without adding any extra thermal or power requirements, Apple said in its introduction.

The CPU is up to 2.8 times faster than the previous generation, and
