US president Donald Trump has made another embarrassing verbal blunder which sent Twitter alight.On Thursday, Trump spoke at a Whirlpool factory in Clyde, Ohio, where he griped about corporations sending jobs overseas to countries like “Thighland” and Vietnam.As the video clip shows, the president quickly corrected himself.President Trump pronounces Thailand "thigh land" before correcting himself." pic.twitter.com/P2uWWcJ0kn— The Hill (@thehill) August 6, 2020 As you might expect, the misspeak amused many on social media, especially since it came just days after Trump mispronounced the name of Yosemite National Park as “Yo-Semites.” Thighland is the home of the Yo Semites. https://t.co/n62NUzVnQC— Paul Begala (@PaulBegala) August 6, 2020Good thing there wasn't a geography portion on that cognitive test. https://t.co/6N8BuUMLyJ— Brian Tyler Cohen (@briantylercohen) August 6, 2020I used to frequent a strip club called "Thighland".

In 2017 Whirlpool won relief from the ITC (US International Trade Commission) once again. Once more, your foreign competitors moved their factories to prevent a level playing field, and to avoid liability.“Shifting production to Thighland, and to Vietnam ...”Trump then repeated himself to correct the pronunciation of Thailand, adding: “Two places that – I like their leaders very much – do they take advantage of the United States? Not so much anymore.”Earlier in the day, Trump launched a deeply personal attack on Joe Biden, even questioning without foundation the former vice president’s faith in God. Even for a president known for his blunt criticism, Trump’s remarks stood out and they signalled how contentious his election campaign may get over the coming months.“He’s against God. He’s against guns. He’s against energy, our kind of energy. I don’t think he’s going to do too well in Ohio,” Trump said.Biden campaign spokesman Andrew Bates responded to Trump’s comments by saying: “Joe Biden’s faith is at the core of who he is; he’s lived it with dignity his entire life, and it’s been a source of strength and comfort in times of extreme hardship.” Bates also accused Trump of using a Bible “for his own cynical optics as he sought to tear our nation apart at a moment of crisis and pain”, a reference to when federal law enforcement officers drove protesters out of Lafayette Square shortly before a photo opportunity in which Trump held a Bible.Related...

Trump signed executive orders Thursday attempting to ban TikTok and WeChat from operating in the US, citing national security concerns. In the orders, the president invoked a 1977 law that gives him the authority to block foreign transactions that pose national security risks. But a legal expert told Business Insider that the orders are "likely to have First Amendment problems" because they attempt to restrict speech. The Trump administration also faces practical and technical challenges in implementing a ban that actually keeps Americans from using the apps. Visit Business Insider's homepage for more stories. After weeks of ramping up his rhetorical attacks on TikTok, President Donald Trump issued an executive order Thursday banning "any transactions" with its parent company ByteDance. He didn't stop there, issuing a second order shortly after targeted at transactions with Tencent-owned messaging app WeChat. In both cases, Trump cited concerns that the apps could allow the Chinese government to spy on Americans and claiming that Beijing could pressure the companies to censor content it doesn't like. But attempting to censor free speech is the exact reason Trump's executive orders could run into legal trouble in US courts, according to one legal expert. Kyle Langvardt, a law professor at the University of Nebraska Lincoln, told Business Insider that Trump's orders "are likely to have First Amendment problems." "The reason is that they discriminate based on the identity of the speaker (Bytedance, Tencent), and also, arguably, based on the 'content' of their speech," Langvardt said. In Thursday's orders Trump invoked his authority the International Emergency Economic Powers Act, a 1977 law that allows him to declare a national emergency, during which he has "broad authority" to regulate foreign economic transactions. In an executive order implemented last year, Trump used the IEEPA to give the administration the ability to interfere in any business transaction involving "information and communications technology or services" that "otherwise pose an unacceptable risk to the national security of the United States or the security and safety of United States persons." Langvardt said that "both orders probably comply with the IEEPA," but they still could face legal scrutiny for  discriminating against certain speakers or types of speech.  "Content discrimination is unconstitutional unless the law is 'narrowly tailored' to serve a 'compelling governmental purpose,'" he said. "Most laws fail this test." Langvardt added that, though he doesn't personally buy this interpretation, most First Amendment experts would consider the apps themselves to be "content," and therefore targeting TikTok and WeChat specifically is effectively discriminating against them in violation of the First Amendment. "The companies express themselves by setting their own rules for what to take down and what to leave up," he said, so "the [executive orders] discriminate against their 'message.'" Aside from the legality of Trump's orders, there are also practical and technical considerations. Langvardt and other legal experts told Business Insider that approaches such as removing the apps from Apple and Google's app stores or blocking internet traffic to the apps similar to China's "Great Firewall" both raise significant challenges of their own. Short of a ban that effectively prevents Americans from using TikTok, Trump has pushed instead for a US company to buy ByteDance's share in the company, thereby severing its Chinese connections. Right now, Microsoft appears to be the leading contender. The Seattle-based tech giant said earlier this month it's in talks with ByteDance, and Trump said he would be open to a Microsoft purchase due to the company's existing "high-level" security clearances.Join the conversation about this story » NOW WATCH: We tested a machine that brews beer at the push of a button

The parent company behind TikTok is in discussions with Microsoft and other US tech companies about acquiring the viral app's US operations. Mark Zuckerberg was asked at a recent Facebook all-hands meeting whether the company was interested in acquiring TikTok, BuzzFeed reports. Although Zuckerberg refused to comment on Facebook's business strategy, he did address Donald Trump's threatened ban of TikTok in the US. "It's a really bad long-term precedent, and that it needs to be handled with the utmost care and gravity whatever the solution is," Zuckerberg reportedly said. "I am really worried…it could very well have long-term consequences in other countries around the world." Visit Business Insider's homepage for more stories. Mark Zuckerberg reportedly told Facebook employees he's "really worried" about the implications of a potential US-wide ban on TikTok. BuzzFeed reports that Zuckerberg addressed TikTok's "extraordinary circumstance" at a recent-all hands meeting with Facebook employees. Donald Trump recently threatened to ban the viral video-sharing app in the US due to its ties to China, and insists he'll do so unless a US tech company acquires TikTok's US operations. "I just think it's a really bad long-term precedent, and that it needs to be handled with the utmost care and gravity whatever the solution is," Zuckerberg reportedly said. "I am really worried…it could very well have long-term consequences in other countries around the world." TikTok's parent company, ByteDance, is scrambling to find a buyer of its operations by Sept. 15. If they don't meet that deadline, Trump says he'll instate a nationwide ban on the viral video-sharing app.  Employees reportedly asked Zuckerberg whether Facebook was interested in acquiring TikTok, but the CEO refused to comment on the company's business dealings. Reports have recently valued TikTok as a whole between $30 billion and $50 billion, and Microsoft's portion as between $10 billion and $30 billion. Microsoft has emerged as the frontrunner in discussions, and has publicly confirmed it's interested in buying TikTok's operations in the US, Australia, Canada, and New Zealand.  Since TikTok came to the US in 2018, it's been a dominant force, outperforming US-based apps that have attracted younger audiences, like Facebook-owned Instagram. A Facebook representative said back in July 2019 that TikTok was one of its main competitors. Since then, Facebook has been working on its own competing feature to take on TikTok. The short-form video-creating format, called Instagram Reels, launched in the US this week as TikTok faces a possible ban. The Trump administration has been threatening to ban TikTok since early July due to perceived national security risks because of its ties to China through ByteDance, whose headquarters are based in Beijing. Questions have circulated regarding around how much access and influence the Chinese government is afforded over the app's user data and content moderation, although TikTok has consistently said it wouldn't share such information if asked.  SEE ALSO: The rise of Jake Paul, the YouTube megastar whose home was raided by the FBI as part of an ongoing investigation Join the conversation about this story » NOW WATCH: A cleaning expert reveals her 3-step method for cleaning your entire home quickly

Mark Zuckerberg's fortune surpassed $100 billion after Facebook launched its TikTok competitor in the US. That makes the tech titan only the third current centi-billionaire on Earth. In June, advertisers including Verizon, Honda, and Ben & Jerry's boycotted Facebook over the social network's lack of hate-speech moderation. The boycott briefly sunk both Facebook's share price and CEO Mark Zuckerberg's net worth. Zuckerberg drives an affordable car and wears basic clothes, but appears to splurge on real estate, buying houses and then buying the surrounding properties for privacy.  Zuckerberg and his wife Priscilla Chan are generous philanthropists, investing billions in childhood education and medical research that they hope will cure all diseases in their children's lifetimes.  Visit Business Insider's homepage for more stories. Mark Zuckerberg is richer than he's ever been. Facebook's shares are on a tear after the company launched a new Instagram feature that will compete with TikTok in the US. The move propelled Zuckerberg's personal net worth over $100 million for the first time. Before the announcement, Zuckerberg had been having a tough summer. Zuckerberg faced fierce criticism for refusing to moderate Facebook posts in which President Trump called civil rights protesters "thugs" and suggested violence when he wrote "when the looting starts, the shooting starts" in the wake of George Floyd's death at the hands of Minneapolis police officers. As a result, civil rights organizations including NAACP, Color of Change, and Anti-Defamation League asked advertisers to stop paying for advertisements on Facebook. Many agreed, sending both Facebook's share price and Zuckerberg's net worth into a freefall.

And then a bunch of people have the reaction of 'Oh, that seems almost impossible — why are you setting your sights so high?'"

The 2020 London Marathon will be an elite-athlete only event, organisers have announced.Elite races for men, women and wheelchair athletes will take place on an enclosed looped course in St James’s Park on October 4 in a secure biosphere, with the times counting towards Tokyo 2020 Olympic qualification.Athletes confirmed for the race include Eliud Kipchoge, Kenenisa Bekele, women’s world record holder Brigid Kosgei and para athletes David Weir and Manuela Schar.No spectators will be allowed at the 40th London Marathon, but BBC Sport will broadcast coverage of the race, encompassing 19.8 laps around the park and finishing in the traditional place on the Mall.“Today is a day of sadness, but also I think it’s a day of certainty,” event director Hugh Brasher said, hailing the “inclusivity” of the new-look race.“It’s a day where we’re announcing what is appropriate – we think – for the 40th race. It’s certainly not something we ever expected to do.”He added: “We hope people will get inspiration from the gods of our sport still battling it out over those 26.2 miles in the only world marathon race that is taking place in the fall.“And still having Eliud Kipchoge, Kenenisa Bekele, Brigid Kosgei, Manuela Schar, David Weir… they’ll take the inspiration from those athletes, on the journey that will be incredibly personal to them. We will celebrate that journey from a distance, but in spirit, together.”Those who had planned to take part in the event – originally postponed from April 26 to October due to the coronavirus pandemic – have been offered the option to defer their places to the 2021, 2022 or 2023 events.The 41st race in 2021 is also set to take place in the autumn, on October 3, to give people more certainty and confidence in the event going ahead.Additionally, 45,000 people who were supposed to take part in the event in the spring will take part in a “virtual race” across the world, receiving a finisher’s medal and T-shirt for completing the 26.2-mile distance from home anywhere in the world within 24 hours on October 4.Brasher said: “We believe it’s the greatest marathon in the world, the greatest athletes in the world are still coming, and we hope that Britain gets behind the 45,000 who will run or walk that 26.2 miles on October 4.“And in that journey, one of the pieces to celebrate in a way – is that actually this will make it the most inclusive London marathon, we believe, in history – because people have 23 hours, 59 minutes and 59 seconds in which to take part.”In 2019, the event raised a record-breaking £66.4million for charitable causes, and Brasher said £20m had been raised for good causes this year at the time of cancellation.Related...

The couple started dating in May 2019 in what many speculated was a joke. The couple maintained that their love was real.  Source: Insider The following month, Paul proposed to Mongeau on her 21st birthday. He also bought her a car worth more than $120,000 to celebrate. The sudden engagement sparked even further rumors that the relationship was inauthentic.

Paul later revealed that the couple was "open." "Any wedding I have, if I have three more f---ing weddings, I really wouldn't want to do it on paper because I think that legally binding yourself to someone takes away the love," Mongeau said. Mongeau released a YouTube video on December 29 where she hinted that her and Paul's relationship had gone downhill since their wedding night — which she called "just hell." Days later, the couple announced they were "taking a break" from their relationship "to focus on our own very crazy lives." In an Instagram post, Paul wrote: "This is bitter sweet but it's what's best for us right now." The two remain close friends.  Source: Insider Paul has continued to fight in boxing matches. Paul, who wrestled in high school, has followed in his older brother's footsteps by participating in various boxing boxes.

In May, Paul was charged with criminal trespassing and unlawful assembly after he and his videographer Andrew Blue had both posted footage on Instagram that showed chaos and vandalism at the Scottsdale Fashion Square mall in Arizona. Paul denied the allegations on Twitter. "For context, we spent the day doing our part to peacefully protest one of the most horrid injustices our country has ever seen, which led us to being tear-gassed for filming the events and brutality that were unfolding in Arizona," he said in a May 31 tweet.    Paul came under fire for partying during the COVID-19 pandemic — and even drew ire from the city of Calabasas' mayor. As cases of the novel coronavirus continued to spike throughout Los Angeles, many influencers and creators — including Paul himself — continued to party and flout social-distancing guidelines. Paul hosted a day-long party at his Calabasas home in July as he filmed a new music video. Guests of the massive party documented their day on Instagram, showing many of them without face coverings both inside and outside of the home. Bryce Hall, Mongeau, and Arman 'Armani' Izadi were among the guests.  Tweet Embed: //twitter.com/mims/statuses/1283238582195384322?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw NEW: The mayor of Calabasas & neighbors tell me they're outraged after they say YouTube celebrity @jakepaul threw a massive party at his mansion on Saturday.

"They're having this large party, no social distancing, no masks, it's just a big, huge disregard for everything that everybody is trying to do to get things back to functioning," she said.  In an interview with Insider, Paul said he wasn't sure if he would give up partying during the pandemic. After his party stirred up controversy, Paul told Insider's Kat Tenbarge in a phone call on July 31 that "everything is cool" with the Calabasas mayor. "I don't know what to think of it, to be honest. I don't think anyone really does," Paul said of the pandemic. "No one has answers, our leadership is failing us, and everyone kind of just doesn't know what to do. But I personally am not the type of person who's gonna sit around and not live my life."  On Aug. 5, Paul's Calabasas mansion was searched by the FBI as part of an ongoing investigation related to the Scottsdale mall incident, a spokesperson for the agency's Phoenix field office told Insider.     The search was an execution of a federal search warrant. Los Angeles Sheriff's Department officers assisted the FBI's search, a spokesperson said, transporting several guns from the property. The FBI could not comment on whether the guns were being used as evidence in the investigation because of the sealed affidavit.  Agents in Las Vegas also searched the mansion of 'Armani' Izadi, Paul's longtime friend and collaborator who also officiated his faux wedding with Mongeau in 2019. Soon after the raid on his home, Izadi posted Instagram story videos with several bikini-clad women at the hot-pink mansion.  Izadi is an accused pimp who has pleaded guilty to attempted battery with substantial bodily harm, The Daily Beast reported in 2018.  In 2013, Izadi was indicted on 20 counts of pimping, robbery, battery, and kidnapping. Investigators described a "prostitution ring" that Izadi would lure women into under false pretenses. "Izadi lured women to his prostitution ring with promises of immense wealth, his companionship, and most of all, his protection," the Las Vegas Review-Journal reported in 2013 after reviewing police records.  Izadi took a plea deal, pleading guilty to one count of pandering, the legal term for pimping, the Las Vegas Review-Journal reported.   In an interview with the YouTube drama reporter Daniel Keem (a.k.a. Keemstar), Adam Quinn, a former manager of Izadi and Paul's YouTuber collective Team 10, said that he left his job because of Izadi's allegedly nefarious behavior.
PayPal has been an independent company for five years since it was spun off from eBay, which acquired the payments platform in 2002. With the expiration of its eBay operating agreement, PayPal is eyeing growth through partnerships with global e-commerce platforms like Alibaba and Shopify. The company has been red-hot in 2020, with its stock more than doubling since mid-March.  John Rainey, PayPal's CFO, told Business Insider the payments giant wants to do more than process payments for other companies. PayPal has ambitions to replace physical wallets and become consumers' go-to way to spend.  Visit Business Insider's homepage for more stories. PayPal has made plenty of big moves since it spun off from eBay in 2015, including a string of acquisitions to solidify itself as more than just the default payment method for the electronic marketplace. But 2020 has arguably brought the most success the payments giant has ever seen, with its stock more than doubling since mid-March as it reports record numbers of new accounts and transactions. Part of that is due to the global shift to online spending as a result of the coronavirus pandemic. But PayPal is also making renewed pushes with new products, like QR codes as a way to pay. And its peer-to-peer app Venmo has continued to grow, even amid shelter-in-place conditions. In the second quarter, PayPal reported 30% growth in volumes, and 25% growth in revenue. It also added over 21 million new accounts, an all-time quarterly high. "A decade ago, PayPal was thought of as a way to pay on eBay," John Rainey, CFO of PayPal, told Business Insider.  "Now, we're launching experiences where you'll be able to go into a CVS pharmacy or a grocery store or a major big box retailer, scan a QR code with your iPhone, and check out that way," he added. Splitting from eBay was always the plan, and PayPal is ready to take off Today, eBay represents just 9% of PayPal's transaction volume. And Rainey expects that number to drop to around 6% by the end of the year. "This is a very manageable transition," Rainey said. "We should be able to withstand this without any fiscal impact to our income statement in terms of profitability." Beyond eBay, PayPal has seen massive transaction volume growth through marketplaces like Etsy and Shopify. While eBay saw about a 30% increase in volume in the second quarter, Etsy and Shopify both reported over 100% growth in sales volumes.  As part a five-year operating agreement established after PayPal's split from eBay, the payments giant continued to process the vast majority of eBay's transactions. However, PayPal was required to give the marketplace better pricing than a handful of eBay's competitors, the names of which were redacted from the agreement.  Now that the agreement has expired, eBay will begin to migrate its payments in-house. But PayPal will still be offered as a way to pay on eBay going forward. Rainey said historically, when marketplaces have made the switch to managing their own payments, PayPal retains around 50% of the checkout volumes. Read more: eBay will manage its own payments now that its 5-year agreement with PayPal has expired, and its head of payments is eyeing $2 billion in new revenue What's more, PayPal is now free to partner with any marketplace, either domestically or abroad. "Now we have the unfettered ability to go partner with anyone in the world," Rainey said. "If you think about some of the larger marketplaces, like MercadoLibre or Alibaba or Amazon, should we have the opportunity to work with them, we now can do that without any restrictions." PayPal is already partnering with MercadoLibre, as well as the likes of Facebook and Google to power their payments.  In its core markets like Canada, Germany, the UK, and the US, PayPal's strategy is to increase user engagement, Rainey said. Internationally, PayPal has more room to grow, with lower penetration in regions like Asia and South America. "MercadoLibre is obviously very big in markets like Brazil, Mexico, Argentina," Rainey said. "Those are places where we actually had some white space in terms of our network." PayPal is also looking to partner with the large e-commerce marketplaces in China, Rainey said. Last December, PayPal acquired Chinese payments platform GoPay, making it the first foreign player with a licence to provide digital payments in China.  PayPal wants to become your daily-use digital wallet PayPal also wants to be a part of consumers' daily lives. Over the past few years it's been laying the groundwork to become more than just a payments processor.  With its acquisitions of peer-to-peer payment app Venmo and rewards startup Honey, it's looking to become a full-fledged digital wallet where consumers can manage their payments, rewards, bills, and credit all in one place. "The analog is somewhat akin to what your physical wallet is today," Rainey said. "We want to invest in areas that are value-add consumers and really play into our value proposition." For example, PayPal wants to help users manage their subscription services to keep credit cards up-to-date and proactively prompting users to renew cards set to expire. It's also looking at ways to integrate rewards into its PayPal and Venmo apps, not only through Honey but also through the existing relationships it has with retailers and banks. Read more: POWER PLAYERS: Meet the 8 PayPal execs shaping the payment giant's future as its stock skyrockets and e-commerce surges Given these relationships, PayPal could serve as a central wallet linking consumers' loyalty points across brands and cards. To that end, PayPal plans to spend $300 million working on these initiatives during the second half of this year. "Even more broadly, if we were to add airlines or rental cars, we provide utility with those loyalty points because our customers can use those as a funding instrument through our wallet, with any of the merchants that we process around the world," Rainey said. Rainey has big plans for using Venmo As consumers' financial lives move increasingly online, PayPal isn't the only player trying to replace physical wallets. Apple and Samsung are making big pushes toward adoption of their respective mobile wallets. Goldman's consumer bank, Marcus, is also working on mobile-based products that could optimize its users spending, saving, and investing. And American Express has been building out its app, looking to bring together customers' spending and rewards. For PayPal,Venmo figures to be a key part of its digital wallet strategy.  Often, the app has been used in social settings by groups of friends splitting checks at bars and restaurants. But users are still sending money on the platform. During the second quarter, Venmo's transaction volumes grew by over 50%. The app currently has roughly 60 million users.  "Historically, there have been more limited use cases for Venmo," Rainey said.  Especially when it comes to PayPal's push for QR codes as a way to pay, Venmo will be a critical platform to increase user engagement. Venmo also now offers business profiles, and will launch its credit card later this year, Rainey said.

  The UEFA Champions League, Europe's premier club soccer tournament, resumes with four games on August 7 and 8.  The Champions League was forced to pause in early March amid uncertainty stemming from the coronavirus pandemic.  CBS obtained broadcasting rights to the rest of the tournament when Turner Sports opted out of finishing the 2019-20 season.  CBS will stream all remaining games through its CBS All Access subscription service, and will also broadcast select games through the CBS Sports Network. CBS All Access subscriptions start at $5.99 a month, and new members can receive a one-month free trial.  With soccer leagues across Europe finally finishing their respective domestic seasons, 12 elite teams have turned their attention to completing the UEFA Champions League. The Champions League is typically played simultaneously with domestic league seasons. However, once the coronavirus pandemic caused long pauses in many leagues, and the cancellation of seasons in others, the Champions League lost priority to finishing domestic seasons. The Champions League resumes in the middle of the round of 16 portion of the tournament. The participants for the quarter finals are already determined on one half of the bracket. These four teams were able to finish both legs of their round of 16 ties before the pause. The remaining eight teams still have the second leg of their ties to complete. These games will take place across August 7 and 8.  Turner Sports, the Champions League official broadcaster in the United States over the past two and a half seasons, forfeited its broadcasting rights for the remainder of the 2019-20 season and the entire 2020-21 competition. CBS then acquired these rights, meaning the remainder of this year's competition will be broadcast by CBS. They were already slated to begin broadcasting Champions League starting with the 2021-22 edition of the competition. In addition to the Champions League, CBS is broadcasting the UEFA Europa League, which began on August 6. The Europa League is also currently in the round of 16 portion of its competition. The majority of CBS' Champions League and Europa League coverage will be exclusive to the CBS All Access streaming service.  How to watch the UEFA Champions League CBS will broadcast every UEFA Champions League match on the CBS All Access streaming service. You can sign up for a month-long free trial of the app here. CBS All Access costs $5.99 a month with limited commercials, or $9.99 a month for the commercial free plan. With that said, the commercial free plan still includes ads during live broadcasts. In addition to CBS All Access, three of the remaining four round of 16 games will also be broadcast on the CBS Sports Network. After that, games stretching from the quarter finals through the final are expected to be exclusive to CBS All Access.  If you have a supported cable or satellite package, you can watch CBS Sports Network's selection of games on TV.  CBS Sports Network is also available through select live TV streaming services, including FuboTV and Hulu+ Live TV. You can access all of these services on most mobile devices, media players, and connected TVs, including Amazon Fire TV, Apple, Android, Chromecast, PS4, Xbox One, Roku, Samsung smart TVs, and more.  The UEFA Champions League restart begins August 7 at 3 p.m. ET with Juventus vs. Lyon and Manchester City vs. Real Madrid. You can view a schedule of upcoming games here. Since CBS also has the rights for next year's season, it's likely that future Champions League games will also be streamed through CBS All Access. The group stages of the 2020-21 Champions League will begin on October 20.  Major storylines Since this restart comes in the middle of the competition, there are important factors that are carrying over from when the tournament stopped nearly five months ago. When the tournament paused, four teams had already advanced to the quarter finals. Those teams are Red Bull Leipzig, Paris Saint-Germain, Atalanta, and Atlético Madrid. The four games taking place on August 7 and 8 will decide which remaining teams go through to the quarter finals. These matches are the second legs of existing ties between teams. The Champions League knockout rounds are composed of two-legged ties. They are two games, played home and away for either team, where the aggregate score determines the winner. Essentially, it's one long 180-minute game played on two separate days. If there's a tie, the tie breaker for the two-game-series is determined by away goals. So, if the combined score from the games sees the teams tied, the team with the most goals scored at the opposing stadium advances.  With that in mind, the current scores after the first leg of the remaining round of 16 are as follows. Manchester City owns a two to one aggregate advantage over Real Madrid after visiting Santiago Bernabéu Stadium. Barcelona and Napoli tied their first meeting one to one at Napoli's Stadio San Paulo. French club Olympique Lyonnais claimed a surprise one to zero victory over Juventus in Lyon. And finally, Chelsea will look to overcome a three to nothing deficit stemming from their at home defeat to Bayern Munich. A new caveat of the tournament — in response to a condensed global soccer schedule — is that the quarter finals through the final will not maintain the two-game-series format that is standard to the Champions League. Instead, the eight quarter finalists will meet at the neutral site of Lisbon, Portugal, for a single elimination tournament to decide this year's European club champion.  This portion of the tournament will stretch between August 12 and August 15.

Get in touch via encrypted messaging app Signal at +1 650-636-6268 or [email protected] Facebook is letting employees work from home until July 2021. The Silicon Valley-headquartered social networking giant has extended its remote work policy through to the summer of next year, Business Insider has learned, as the pandemic continues to rage across the US. In a statement, spokesperson Nneka Norville said: "Based on guidance from health and government experts, as well as decisions drawn from our internal discussions about these matters, we are allowing employees to continue voluntarily working from home until July 2021. In addition, we are giving employees an additional $1,000 for home office needs." Facebook joins a growing number of companies who are allowing their employees to continue to work remotely well into 2021, including Google — reflecting a growing consensus that the pandemic is highly unlikely to come to an end before the end of the year. The $755 billion company was early to allow its workers to work remotely as the pandemic spread, sending some home as early as March. It is also leaning hard on remote work as a long-term strategy for the company, and expects to have up to 50% of its workforce working remotely in the next five to ten years, CEO Mark Zuckerberg has said. Facebook had more than 48,000 employees around the world, as of March 31. Correction: An earlier version of this story misstated the month Facebook employees will return to the office. It is July 2021, not June 2021.Join the conversation about this story » NOW WATCH: How waste is dealt with on the world's largest cruise ship
Uber on Thursday reported a wider loss in the second quarter than Wall Street expected. The company's main rides business was hit hard by the coronavirus pandemic. To help make up the difference, it leaned on food delivery — which for the first time generated more revenue than its ride-hailing business. Shares fell as much as 5% in after-hours trading shortly after Uber released its earnings report. Visit Business Insider's homepage for more stories. Uber on Thursday reported second-quarter revenue that topped Wall Street's expectations for the three-month period that bore the brunt of the coronavirus pandemic, but its overall losses exceeded expectations. For the first time, food-delivery revenue topped ride-hailing revenue and all other segments, as the company leaned heavily on its Uber Eats business to make up for the coronavirus-related downturn. Here are the important numbers: Earnings per share: $1.02 loss, versus $0.76 loss expected Revenue: $2.24 billion, versus $1.82 billion expected Net income: $1.78 billion loss, versus $1.27 billion loss expected Gross bookings, a measure of total revenue from rides and food orders before paying drivers and couriers, declined 35% from the previous year, to $10.2 billion, during a period marked by a significant downturn in ride requests. Shares of Uber fell as much as 5% in after-hours trading following the release. They had risen about 4% in regular trading on Thursday. "We are fortunate to have both a global footprint and such a natural hedge across our two core segments," CEO Dara Khosrowshahi said in a press release. "As some people stay closer to home, more people are ordering from Uber Eats than ever before." During the quarter, Uber announced a $2.65 billion deal to acquire the competing service Postmates and closed a deal for Cornershop, a grocery-delivery service based in Chile, as it ramped up delivery efforts. Uber has also slashed thousands of jobs this year in a bid to cut overhead costs. Freight revenue also increased by 27%, to $211 million, as Uber's freight brokerage scaled up. Advanced Technologies Group, which is developing self-driving cars, for the first time reported revenue totaling $25 million. Uber executives on a conference call with investors on Thursday afternoon are expected to shed more light on how the company is navigating the pandemic and the demand trends it's seeing as outbreaks wane in many countries.Join the conversation about this story » NOW WATCH: We tested a machine that brews beer at the push of a button

Starz has added streaming subscribers and reduced cancellations, even as legacy-media giants like WarnerMedia and Peacock launch rival offerings.  Two top Starz execs told Business Insider that comarketing with platforms including Amazon Prime Video and Hulu has been key to that growth. "We're going to market with them in a lot of instances to try to grab subscribers together," Alison Hoffman, Starz' president of domestic networks, told Business Insider. The premium-TV service, which hired a new content chief in May, is also ordering more seasons of shows like "P-Valley" and a wide-range of new dramas geared toward its core audience of women to keep the moment going. Visit Insider's homepage for more stories. Premium-TV network Starz is facing more competition in the streaming space from new entrants like HBO Max, Peacock, and Apple TV Plus. But its streaming audience has continued to grow, reaching in March new heights of 6.8 million subscriber in the US and 10.6 million globally, including its international version StarzPlay. Subscription-analytics firm Antenna also found that, while Starz's US rate of conversion from free trials to subscriptions was lower than some other major streaming services, people who paid to subscribe were more likely stick with Starz than its direct competitors. Starz had the lowest pace of cancellations, or churn, among premium-TV rivals including HBO and Showtime from April to June, according to the July report. Starz also told Business Insider that cancellations were down year-over-year in recent months, and users were watching for longer. Part of Starz's growth is due to the pandemic, which has people spending more time at home and streaming video. But two top Starz execs also told Business Insider that the company has been partnering with new streaming entrants to nab more subscribers. Those players are willing to work with Starz because it's so far resisted the trend of expanding into a general-audience streaming service, and sells itself alongside those other platforms. "We really are sticking to that premium model, which also allows us to partner with a lot of these entrants," Alison Hoffman, Starz' president of domestic networks, told Business Insider. "We're going to market with them in a lot of instances to try to grab subscribers together." Hoffman, who was Starz's marketing chief before being promoted to her current role in April, said Starz is comarketing its service with well-heeled streamers like Hulu, Apple TV Plus, and Amazon Prime Video.  Those streamers, incidentally, have been among the heaviest advertisers in the streaming-TV category since the pandemic hit, as Business Insider has reported. Each aired TV ads worth north of $100 million during the second quarter, according to data from iSpot.TV. Hulu also promoted Starz as an add-on service in recent digital-ad campaign, as Business Insider reported based on data from Pathmatics. And, in November, as Disney was blocking rival Netflix from advertising on many of its TV networks, it was promoting Starz on Disney Plus and ESPN Plus, as The Verge first reported. C0marketing with other channels served Starz well in the pay-TV ecosystem, when it would sell in bundles with other premium-TV networks HBO or Showtime, on top of basic cable. Starz simply translated it to the streaming world.  "The more things change, the more they stay the same," Hoffman said. "We're really sticking to our knitting." Starz is doubling down on its core strategy when it comes to programming, as well. In May, the company brought on former CBS exec Christina Davis as its head of original programming. She is helping expand Starz's slate of dramas geared toward audiences it says have been traditionally underserved by premium TV, like women, Black, Latinx, and LGBTQ viewers. The company solidified that approach after its historical drama "The White Queen" hit in 2013, and set the stage for dramas like "Outlander" that came after. "We saw this influx of women viewers and they were passionate and they were buzzing on social media," Hoffman said. "We said, 'Nobody is doing this and there's such passion and there's such attachment and evangelism, because people aren't finding these voices on premium.'" Starz is sharpening that focus now to stand out amid the noise in streaming.  Davis said she's looking for stories that go deeper into character than much of what she was able to shepherd in in the broadcast world. "I've always been jealous of the outlets that get to actually tell these brilliant stories about brilliant characters that are female and diverse," Davis said. "The stuff that I'm most proud of, I could see on Starz, like 'The Good Wife,' and shows like that, that really get to dig deeper into character exploration and tell a very distinct, potentially provocative story." Davis is meeting, virtually, with a wide range of writers from the traditional-TV sphere, as well as creators outside of that bubble, given that first-time showrunners like Katori Hall have created huge hits for the network.  Starz recently ordered a second season of Hall's "P-Valley," a drama about the strip-club scene in Mississippi that made waves after it launched in July. It also renewed the crime drama "Hightown" and set a September premiere date for its "Power" spinoff, "Power Book II: Ghost." She's also learning to give those creators space to create. "What I'm noticing is that we're able to let the creators tell these stories," Davis said. "Instead of noting them to death, just let them tell their story and let the passion come out." Starz released 14 original series in the last year, the company said. It currently has about 20 shows in development, compared with the 50 to 60 series Davis said she would typically develop during an average broadcast season, 10 of which would make it to pilot and roughly four of which would get series orders. Davis is also starting to think more globally about programming, as Starz has expanded to 50 countries through its international streaming service, StarzPlay.
