The Supreme Court is split on gerrymandering.
While some Justices believed federal courts should be able to limit partisan gerrymandering,
The majority disagreed, and opened the door for MORE rigged Republican maps.

We must end map manipulation. A.G. Holder knows this. President Obama knows this. It's why they're helping us build a strong grassroots movement to demand and make change. But they're relying on you as well -- because we can only reform our political process together.

Show President Obama and A.G. Holder you have their backs. Donate today by midnight to help us reach our end-of-month goal of raising $25,000.

There's a lot of work to be done in the run-up to the redistricting process next year. We are educating volunteers in target states, organizing and supporting movements already on the ground, and providing supporters with ways to take action. But none of this will be possible without the support of people like you, Sula.

Today's our last chance in April to support the movement that will show map manipulators what people power can do. But we need 11 folks from New York to step up if we want to reach our goal. Can we count on you to chip in by midnight?

Thanks for being a part of this,

All On The Line is the grassroots advocacy campaign supported by the National Redistricting Action Fund. Support our work to end gerrymandering.

Let's Be Lucky Racing
Horse Racing Ownership Syndicate, Presented by Alex Gorrie.   

Please consider joining let's be Lucky with this fantastic offer. that you see below. Let us help you get into the winners enclosure and you get a good discount as well.

The last thing the whole world needed was a global virus and it seems that certain parts of every country are doing a lot worse than others. Things seem to be moving the right way and lets hope they open businesses slowly when the powers that be think it's the right time. Keep safe it will not be long until we are racing again.
The last 12 months on the UK service has fantatic. 6 winning months from the last 8 last and we have had our best start to the year for many years including a super Cheltenham week. I will work very hard to hit the groung running when racing starts again. My service is in great shape and I hope you join us as a racehorse shareholder.
For your first share purchase with us regardless of the size bif or small we will give you a 20% discount and up to a £100 discount on any share you buy. Over and above that you get all our inside information on UK horses at not extra charge. The All incusive training fees covers everything except the BHA which will be squared off with winnings. It does not matter how big or small your share is you will be treated the same way and plenty of owners badges are made available to our clients. Please email me at if you want to get involved. 

All our plans that we had will now be moved back by a few  months. Our horses are all well and have no issues. The good news is that all our horses are in very good order to hit the ground running when racing does start back. All our horses from 3 year old and up are handicapped to win races on the flat and we have the added bonus this year of having well handicapped horses over hurdles and an interesting Novice Hurdle recruit in Sioux Frontier.

We have 6.25% for sale in our stable star Jabbaar. He's going to be a fantastic horse going forward and I do think he's well handicapped on the flat and over hurdles. Flood Defence is a lot better than her hurdles form suggests and she is also very well handicapped for the flat.

Jump The Gun continues to thrive. I promised Iain Jardine that we would buy him a special horse at the October sales last year. I have no doubt at all that in Jump The Gun that we have purchased a very special horse.

Electric Angel and Havana Party continue to do very well. I suggest 0.3125%, 0.625% or 1.25% in each . They are both nice horses and Iain Jardine has told me both will be winning races. With 2 year olds you could buy anything and these horses are showing up well on the gallops.
Azor Ahai, Western Dawn, Sioux Frontier and Flood Defence are all doing well and are well handicapped individuals. We have a few shares left in them and they should do very well for us this year and in 2021.

Please visit our website for further info and a full details on the horses we have for sale.

Kind Regards

The Impact of COVID-19 on DTC brands

We first talked about the Direct-To-Consumer revolution in 2018, introducing Warby Parker, Casper, and Dollar Shave Club as the next household brands.

And they've done well. There are a lot more of them now.

For these brands, COVID-19 has been a double edged sword.

Traffic is up

Jean-Michel Lemieux, CTO of Shopify, recently tweeted that they are handling Black Friday level traffic every day. Facebook and Google both announced strong Q1 results. The internet has been winning.

Supply chains are hurt

But these DTC startups are in a squeeze. Consumers are shopping online more than ever, but it's also harder than ever to get a package to a customer's door.

That's because DTC startups still sell physical "stuff".

They make that stuff in factories, and those factories are usually in China. And COVID-19 has shut down factories and shipping routes, causing all sorts of production delays. Amazon, which relies on a business model centered around making a box appear at your home in less than 2 days, has wait times that are as long as a month.

So, for now, unfortunately, you'll have to wait a month for your bespoke bed linens.

More from last week

Working remotely pays. A recent analysis by Nnamdi Iregbulem showed that fully-remote software developers earn 22% more than developers who never or rarely work remote.

Even working only a few days each month yielded a pay advantage of 15% on average, and 5% controlling for observable factors (including age, experience, hours worked, size of employer and programming languages).
Superhuman founder and CEO Rahul Vohra shares his guide on running a startup during a recession:
  • Choose how much runway you want to maintain (e.g., 24, 36, 48 months).
  • Every year, adjust your net burn such that your runway is always at this level.
  • You can reduce net burn through revenue growth and cost reduction; conversely, you can increase net burn through faster hiring and more marketing.
A startup's ability to learn and evolve quickly is fundamental to its long term success. Learning needs to be embedded in the culture and organization from the early days. Gigi Levy of NFX breaks down the 3 critical components:
  • Establish a learning culture through company-wide retros and rules.
  • Make transparency an organizational imperative.
  • Scrutinize your wins as much as your losses.
Julia Lipton, the founder of Awesome People Ventures, makes the case for world-positive investing. She argues that it's a human obligation to fund a better future now more than ever.
The emotional rollercoaster of working at a startup is far preferable than the existential toil of big companies. Abi Tyas Tungal enumerates the advantages of a career in startups vs. big companies, and shares his advice for how to approach a startup job search.
Alex Garella shares why remote is the future of work thanks to the many benefits that it brings:

  • Freedom of location
  • Freedom of time
  • Freedom of work environment
  • Freedom of lifestyle
  • Reduced fixed costs
  • Increased robustness
  • Global hiring

Funding and Acquisitions

Expedia is raising $3.2 billion in new capital as the coronavirus pandemic has stalled travel around the world. Funds managed by affiliates of Apollo Global Management and Silver Lake will provide the equity investment and will each get a spot on the company’s board. Expedia said it expects the new funds to strengthen its financial flexibility and liquidity position.
Security data and analytics solutions provider Rapid7 announced its intent to acquire DivvyCloud, a cloud security and governance startup, for $145 million in cash and stock. The acquisition comes at a time when enterprises are experiencing a spike in malware campaigns using coronavirus misinformation.
Confluent, a cloud infrastructure platform for Apache Kafka, closed a $250 million Series E funding round at a $4.5 billion valuation. Confluent’s business rests on the idea that the daily cycle of “batch-processed data” isn’t enough to keep up with the speed and personalization that people want.
Blue Prism has raised $124 million in equity financing at a valuation of around $1.2 billion. Blue Prism specializes in robotic process automation, and the COVID-19 pandemic and subsequent global lockdowns have tempted firms to invest in the area.
Online collaborative whiteboard startup Miro has raised $50 million in new funding to expand its platform. Remote collaboration tools like Miro are experiencing a surge in usage.
