Tiltify – a digital fundraising platform that counts among its users such notables as actors Emilia Clark and Vin Diesel, and influencers DrLupo, Jacksepticeye and Markiplier – said it has now done some decidedly non-charity fundraising of its own, raising $6.5 million in a Series A round.

The Los Angeles-based company said it will use the money to expand its reach beyond traditional charity fundraisers in developing new ways to engage with next-generation consumers, and encourage more donations. That may include new kinds of features and game-ifications, such as “polls, rewards, milestones, visual overlays, and animations,” according to the company.

This has been one of the most difficult years in recent history for America and around the globe, desperately catalyzing the need to support causes worldwide,” said Tiltify CEO Michael Wasserman, a co-founder. “Fortunately, our community of creators took to their platforms to leverage their

  • Apple announced its latest class of iPhones on Tuesday, but some analysts said the company failed to address a key point: Why the average consumer should shell out $1,000 for its top-of-the-line iPhone 12 Pro model.
  • The Pro models and “regular” iPhone 12 models can be distinguished by the extra camera lens in the pricier option.
  • But that mostly matters for serious photographers, not the average consumer.

Walmart (WMT) has rolled out a revamped Black Friday shopping schedule during the coronavirus pandemic as shoppers look for safe ways to still get in on the deals for the holiday season.

As most retailers have promised, the deals for Black Friday will start early and extend longer, with Walmart offering three sales events as it looks to provide a “safer and more convenient shopping experience” for customers.

The events – Black Friday Deals for Days – will give customers three separate savings events throughout the month of November. The sales events will begin online and continue in stores with the option for curbside pickup of orders at no additional charge.

“Although this year’s event looks different, our commitment to what our customers depend on us for – the absolute best prices of the season on hot gifts from top brands – hasn’t changed,” Scott McCall, executive vice president and

The second and final day of Prime Day 2020 is here, but there are still a ton of deals to take advantage of for the next several hours, including this fantastic deal on Sony’s new WH-1000XM4 wireless over-ear headphones. Normally, these headphones cost $350, but if you are an Amazon Prime member, you can buy a pair for just $298. Even better? Amazon will also give you a $25 gift card to its website when you purchase these headphones. Best Buy and B&H Photo are also price matching Amazon, but unfortunately, neither retailer is including the gift card sweetener like Amazon. The price is available for both color options (black and silver).

Sony originally released these headphones in August. When stacked up against its predecessor, the WH-1000XM3, the newer model shares a similar design but allows users the ability to pair two devices via Bluetooth simultaneously. My colleague, Chris Welch,

The U.S. Army has just put more than a billion dollars into a new air defense system called IM-SHORAD to protect soldiers from drone attacks. It is a vital mission – but the last time the Army tried to develop something like this the project failed horribly. And even if the new system works as intended, serious questions remain.

The U.S. has enjoyed air superiority, if not air supremacy, in every conflict for decades. American planes have swept the enemy aircraft from the sky or destroyed them on the ground. The last time an American soldier was killed by enemy air attack was during the Korean War. As a result, while the Russians and others have continued to develop generations of armored vehicles carrying surface-to-air missiles

Just Eat Takeaway.com said on Wednesday that orders in Canada — where it operates as Skip The Dishes — rose by 98% to 23.5 million in the third quarter compared with the same period last year.

Canadians have been used to picking up food from restaurants rather than having it delivered to their homes. But that appears to be changing, encouraged by restrictions imposed during the pandemic and lockdowns that kept people at home.

“We are now transforming that pick-up culture into a delivery culture, that’s why it’s growing so quickly,” Just Eat Takeaway.com’s investor relations manager Joris Wilton told CNN Business, adding that the second quarter had seen similar levels of growth.

A big increase in the selection of meals offered by restaurants also helped, making consumers more likely to order food more often, he said.

Just Eat Takeaway.com, which was formed through a high-stakes merger last year, is

  • While the polls suggest a blue wave victory is in reach for Democrats this November, the stock market isn’t so sure, according to a note from Evercore ISI.
  • Wall Street strategists have been forecasting that a blue wave would likely be positive for stocks on hopes of a large stimulus deal shortly after the election, which would help spur a surge in value and cyclical stocks.
  • But this week’s rotation out of value and into tech suggests that chances of a blue wave in November are less likely, according to the note.
  • Visit Business Insider’s homepage for more stories.

Wall Street is increasingly expecting a blue wave victory for Democrats this November after the polls close, which would likely lead to the reflation trade: a surge in cyclical and value stocks at the expense of technology and growth stocks.

But recent trading activity in the stock market suggests
