Phelix Crittenden and volunteers with Blacks Organizing Strategic Success (BO$$), a local organization focused on empowering minorities with business resources, had no intention of marching.
But as pepper balls cut through people scrambling for safety in a thick haze of tear gas, she realized there were no exceptions for anyone who was in the vicinity. Protester or not.
In the final week of May, protesters had taken to the streets demanding justice for Breonna Taylor, a 26-year-old ER technician who was shot and killed by police in her apartment in March. In support of those demonstrations, Crittenden and BO$$ volunteers spent the first few days delivering water and snacks to protesters in Jefferson Square Park.
Despite clashes between the police and protesters, they

Alibaba (NYSE:BABA) has a lot going for it – not only is it a key beneficiary of secular drivers such as an ever-growing consumption-driven economy and the shift to e-commerce, but its ability to funnel that cash flow into profitable growth opportunities (e.g., cloud and logistics) leaves me incrementally bullish post-investor day. While the event is unlikely to result in major changes to consensus estimates, the long-term shift in focus toward a more balanced approach to growth and margins likely underpins sustained, long-term earnings growth, in my view. At current valuations, I believe the market is assigning value only to the core business and cloud, granting investors access to BABA’s ~$114bn strategic investment portfolio for free.
Outlining the Long-Term Drivers

The trouble with human resources is that it’s too often “last on, first off.” Not due to any fault of HR people, per se. But the vast majority of founders (especially first-timers) are not HR people.

Not only do founders usually come from a sales, marketing, finance or operations background, but they’ve also likely bought into the outdated narrative that HR is some sort of “necessary evil,” a cost center and talent backwater that only drags the company down into compliance and procedure, stifling the “move fast and break things” credo.
Fast growth often covers up many problems for months, even years, until things fester beyond the point of no return. HR is not the least of these. In fact, in my experience, it’s the most common such problem.
As long as a company is growing quickly up to 150-200 people, the
