Workers sort packages after the "Singles Day" shopping festival at a delivery company in Hengyang in China's central Hunan province early on November 12, 2018.

Akin to Black Friday and Cyber Monday in the United States, Singles' Day has been promoted as a shopping fest by Alibaba Chairman and Chief Executive Daniel Zhang since 2009, growing rapidly to become the world's biggest online sales event.

Citic Securities, in a Nov. 9 research note, forecast Singles Day sales to grow 20-25% this year, held back partly by slowing overall e-commerce growth in China.

The Chinese retail juggernaut, with a market value of $486 billion, kicked off this year's 24-hour shopping fest with performances by American pop star Taylor Swift and local celebrities such as Jackson Yee.

I’d be happy if it drops double-digits since I’ll just stick more money in.’ Readers cheered on his FIRE success story, though some pointed out reaching those numbers are unrealistic for those without the parental boost.

“This absolutely proves success from early compounding, no student loans and living with parents for an extended period of time,” one wrote.

Even when Hansson's wife paid off her low credit limit in full, the card wouldn't approve her spending until the next billing period, he wrote in a series of tweets starting on Thursday.

"The Department will be conducting an investigation to determine whether New York law was violated and ensure all consumers are treated equally regardless of sex."

Hansson, the creator of the programming tool Ruby on Rails, said that after his complaints Goldman bumped up his wife's credit limit without requesting any additional documentation or addressing the root of the issue.

The House Financial Services Committee in June held hearings on instances of bias against certain groups within algorithms, even when there was no intent to discriminate.

Throwing massive chunks of cash into their marketing, ride and driver subsidization, and research and development around initiatives that may or may not pay dividends will be punished in every quarterly report, as it was this week.

In the context of combating climate change and creating more livable cities, drawing passengers away from public transport like the subway in New York and adding more cars will only increase traffic, pollution, and frustration.

Now, Via operates a broad network of six-seat vans in Arlington, essentially providing public transportation to the entire city, which in turn subsidizes Via rides through its local transit budget.

For Uber, now is the time to get to profitability and prove that the future of ride hailing is part of a larger, more robust strategy for consumers, cities, and the world.
