Shift To Online Marketplaces To Help eBay’s Stock?

Despite doubling from its March lows of this year, at the current price near $52, we believe eBay’s stock (NASDAQ: EBAY) is undervalued. eBay’s stock has rallied from $26 to $52 off the recent bottom compared to the S&P 500 which has risen by 50% from its recent bottom. The stock was able to beat the broader market in the last 6 months as the US government announced a string of measures along with stimulus packages announced in other economies to keep businesses afloat. eBay benefited additionally because (1) people were preferring online marketplaces which saw its merchandise volumes grow in double-digits even in April and May, and (2) eBay’s reached a deal to sell its classified business to Adevinta

How This $140 Million Design Software Startup Uses Math To Help Power The Shift To 3D Printing

Bradley Rothenberg, cofounder and CEO of nTopology, is building next generation design software that relies on mathematical computations to create 3D-printed parts and products that are lighter and more efficient than would be possible with older CAD systems. As 3D printing takes hold as a means for mass production in industries like aerospace, automotive and healthcare, his New York City-based startup expects revenue to more than triple this year, to $5 million, up from $1.5 million in 2019. 

That’s still tiny, of course, but the market for this type of cloud-based generative design software is growing so fast that in June – six months earlier than expected and despite the pandemic – nTopology raised $42 million led by Insight Partners at a valuation of $140 million. The fresh capital will help nTopology, which has 82 employees, expand as industries including aerospace, automotive and

One of the reasons for the recovery was the Fed’s multi-billion dollar stimulus package announced on March 23rd which lifted market sentiments.

On building better business continuity and preparing for every shift in work style

As discussed in the previous article, work styles are rapidly shifting, and with that comes new challenges in technology enablement; how can organisations properly equip and empower their people to continue working, while also ensuring high levels of productivity and protecting the business’ most sensitive data and assets?

Strategically, organisations need to be thinking about remote work as a “bubble” that moves with them. For example, while Gartner found that 74% of CFOs planned on enabling remote working, the same survey found that it was only around 5% of their workforce that would shift from on-site to permanently remote. Many more would instead become “hybrid” workers, spending some time working remotely, and other times coming into the office. For these people, the ability to work needs to travel with them.

Marine bacteria shift between lifestyles to get the best resources — ScienceDaily

To stay, or not to stay? When it comes to nutrient resource patches, researchers from Japan and Switzerland have discovered that marine bacteria have a knack for exploiting them efficiently, timing movements between patches to get the best resources.

In a study published this month in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, U.S.A., researchers from the University of Tsukuba and ETH Zurich have revealed that marine bacteria optimize nutrient uptake by switching between dispersal and resource exploitation.

Heterotrophic bacteria (i.e., those that cannot produce their own food, instead obtaining nutrition from other sources of organic carbon, such as plant or animal matter) are the main recyclers of dissolved organic matter (DOM) in the ocean. Hotspots of DOM that are made up of particles, such as marine snow, are important to the global carbon cycle.

“Some groups of heterotrophic bacteria take advantage of these hotspots,” says one of the
