Does Lack Of Funding For Black And Latino Tech Founders Constitute An Existential Crisis? - Moguldom

“We’re not getting that funding so it’s easy to feel like we dont exist,” said Anthony Frasier in a interview. Frasier is CEO of ABF Creative, a multicultural branded podcast network that crafts heritage-driven podcasts. John Coltrane Draws a Picture Illustrating the Mathematics of Music. Physicist and saxophonist Stephon Alexander has argued in his many public lectures and his book The Jazz of Physics that Albert Einstein and John Coltrane had quite a lot in common.

John Coltrane Draws a Picture Illustrating the Mathematics of Music

Alexander in particular draws our attention to the so-called “Coltrane circle,” which resembles what any musician will recognize as the “Circle of Fifths,” but incorporates Coltrane’s own innovations. Coltrane gave the drawing to saxophonist and professor Yusef Lateef in 1967, who included it in his seminal text, Repository of Scales and Melodic Patterns. Where Lateef, as he writes in his autobiography, sees Coltrane’s music as a “spiritual journey” that “embraced the concerns of a rich tradition of autophysiopsychic music,” Alexander sees “the same geometric principle that motivated Einstein’s” quantum theory.

Neither description seems out of place. Musician and blogger Roel Hollander notes, “Thelonious Monk once said ‘All musicans are subconsciously mathematicians.’ Related Content: SAGE Journals: Your gateway to world-class journal research. Space_3276808. 2.


Act normal If you are a high-risk source, avoid saying anything or doing anything after submitting which might promote suspicion. In particular, you should try to stick to your normal routine and behaviour. 3. Remove traces of your submission If you are a high-risk source and the computer you prepared your submission on, or uploaded it from, could subsequently be audited in an investigation, we recommend that you format and dispose of the computer hard drive and any other storage media you used. In particular, hard drives retain data after formatting which may be visible to a digital forensics team and flash media (USB sticks, memory cards and SSD drives) retain data even after a secure erasure. If you do this and are a high-risk source you should make sure there are no traces of the clean-up, since such traces themselves may draw suspicion. I believe in using words, not fists. I believe in my outrage knowing people are living in boxes on the street. I believe in honesty. I believe in a good time. I believe in good food. I believe in sex. - Bertrand Russell - BrainyQuote.

Funnels for Startups: A Primer. Funnels are remarkably useful in many aspects of startup life.

Funnels for Startups: A Primer

Whether you are trying to get users to try your product, or sell to an enterprise customer, or hire an engineer, or raise capital, you are dealing with a funnel. Funnels are essentially inverted pyramids divided into stages. The objective is to move through the funnel from top to bottom, while trying to lose as little as possible in each stage. In other words, a perfect funnel would be: you talked to 100 companies, and every single one became a customer, or you talked to 20 investors and all wrote you a check.

Perfect funnels don’t exist in real life—that’s why we are going to talk about strategies and methods to get as close to a perfect funnel as possible. Rule 1: Optimize Funnels From the Bottom Up Here is the first and most important rule of any funnel: Chicago Isn’t Just Segregated, It Basically Invented Modern Segregation.

Chicago Isn’t Just Segregated, It Basically Invented Modern Segregation

The significance of the Metropolitan Planning Council/Urban Institute report I wrote about yesterday is that it puts new numbers to an old truth: that Chicago is one of the most segregated cities in the country, if not the most. (There are different ways of measuring that, but Chicago is usually far up the rankings no matter how it’s approached.) But what is it about Chicago that made it that way? It’s impossible to answer definitively, but the most satisfying answer I’ve encountered comes from Carl Nightingale, author of the book Segregation: A Global History—it has a lot to do with timing. When I interviewed Nightingale about the book, this is what he told me: Perhaps it was the chance of historical timing. A substantial part of Nightingale’s book is about how Chicago was a laboratory for segregation.

Myths around property values needing to be in segregated space, those myths come from Chicago in the 1910s. Share Edit Module Other Whet Moser stories.
