According to The Hollywood Reporter, Burger King is petitioning the Russian government’s Federal Anti-Monopoly Service to ban It from showing in theaters because they argue that the Stephen King reboot could potentially hurt its business. Apparently, Burger King is afraid that audiences will watch an evil clown terrorize a bunch of children for two hours and get inspired to give their business to another similarly red-haired clown. It's basically the opposite argument that all those hardworking clowns made when they feared that IT would wreck their birthday party business, but whatever.
Responding to President Vladimir Putin's recent comments on artificial intelligence, Space X and Tesla CEO Elon Musk said on Monday that World War III would likely be triggered by competition for AI. The business magnate’s prediction came in response to Putin’s comments at a meeting with schoolchildren in Yaroslavl on September 1, in which the Russian president said it was important to prevent monopolies in the field, adding that if Russia became the global leader in artificial intelligence, “it will share its technology with the rest of the world, like we are doing now with atomic and nuclear technology.”

A central bank rescue of Russian bank Otkritie has eased market concerns that other banks could be in trouble, prompting banking stocks to reverse three days of losses. Russia’s central bank stepped in on Tuesday to take at least a 75 per cent stake in Otkritie, the country’s biggest privately-owned bank, to plug a hole in its balance sheet. The bailout highlights problems among Russia’s banks and the challenge the authorities face in trying to clean up the sector.
An advisor to Russian President Vladimir Putin is trying to raise as much as $100 million in an initial coin offering (ICO). The funding effort for the "Russian Mining Company" was revealed this week by Dmitry Marinichev, who serves as the internet ombudsman to Putin's office. According to a presentation published in tandem with the unveiling, the team behind the effort is planning to tap as much as 20 megawatts to power their mining farm, using chips developed domestically. Bitcoin mining is an energy intensive process by which new transactions are added to the blockchain, creating new tokens – 12.5 BTC, or roughly $42,000 at current prices – as a reward for the miner.
Jeff Bezos on Thursday briefly topped Bill Gates as the world’s richest man following a spike in Amazon, according to data crunched by Forbes. But if Bill Browder’s numbers are correct, the massive fortunes of both tech giants combined still wouldn’t stack up to the real richest man in the world.

The first person who introduced the concept of “stalking” in investing was Van Tharp when he described his Ten Tasks of Trading. One of these tasks was: “stalking your trade”.
