A particularly meme-able moment to come out of Tuesday’s Supreme Court confirmation hearing was when Senator John Cornyn asked Judge Amy Coney Barrett to share her notes with the room.

The moment was then taken and turned into various memes that were shared on the internet.

Cornyn, a Republican member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, told Barrett that senators had multiple notebooks, notes and books to reference during the hearing. Then, he asked if she could hold up the preparatory materials she was using to answer the committee’s questions, at which point she showed them a blank notepad save the Senate’s letterhead

“That’s impressive,” Cornyn said before continuing on with

CRA Website Error Puts CRB Applications on Hold

October 12, 2020 | website | No Comments

It seems like the Canada Revenue Agency’s (CRA) Thanksgiving surprise was not that good. Canadians are flocking on to Twitter and other social media sites to discuss the error message on the CRA website. Today, the CRA opened the application window for the Canada Recovery Benefit (CRB). Millions of Canadians logged in only to be disappointed with a message.

The message read, “You cannot apply for the Canada Recovery Benefit as you have applied for all eligible periods. The next periods become available every second Monday.”

And today being Thanksgiving, the CRA contact centre is closed. So, I guess you will have to wait until Tuesday to apply for the CRB.

The CRA had less than a month to transition millions of Canadians from the Canada Emergency Response Benefit (CERB) to CRB. Also, it had to implement new sickness and caregiving benefits. To

WASHINGTON (Reuters) – A U.S. judge said on Tuesday he would hold a Nov. 4 hearing on whether to allow the U.S. government to bar transactions with TikTok, a move that the Chinese-owned short video-sharing app has warned would effectively ban its use in the United States.

U.S. District Judge Carl Nichols in Washington issued a preliminary injunction on Sept. 27 that barred the U.S. Commerce Department from ordering Apple Inc and Alphabet Inc’s Google app stores to remove TikTok for download by new users.

Nichols must now decide whether to block the other aspects of the Commerce Department order set to take effect on Nov. 12. Nichols’ new hearing is scheduled for one day after the presidential election.

Talks are ongoing to finalize a preliminary deal for Walmart Inc and Oracle Corp to take stakes in a new company, TikTok Global, that would oversee U.S. operations. U.S. President Donald

TikTok averted a ban in the United States last week when a federal judge ruled that Washington couldn’t block it from app stores just yet.

The short-form video app is still accessible, but its fate in the country is far from certain.

The court ruling is only temporary, and could be appealed by the US government. The ruling could also eventually be thrown out: The judge only weighed in because TikTok challenged the ban, and the company could lose its court case.

To make things more confusing, TikTok’s court case isn’t the only thing governing the future of the app.

TikTok’s Chinese owner, ByteDance, is racing to close a deal with the American firms Oracle and Walmart that might be enough to satisfy the Trump administration’s concerns

Snowflake  (SNOW) – Get Report shares fell after Jefferies analyst Brent Thill initiated coverage of the cloud-services company with a hold rating and $250 share-price target.

He likes the company but not its valuation — about 51 times his 2022 revenue estimate and 21 times his best-case 2023 estimate. 

The San Mateo, Calif., company’s stock stands “ahead of its fundamentals,” Thill wrote in a commentary, according to Bloomberg.

Snowflake recently traded at $244.80, down 2.5%. It has more than doubled from its Sept. 15 IPO price of $120.

In addition to his concern about valuation, Thill noted that Snowflake faces intense competition in its field.

As for his overall bullishness, Thill likes Snowflake’s management team. It has a “proven track record of building from a base (today an $81 billion addressable market) to much larger total addressable markets over time.”

Last week, Summit Insights analyst Srini Nandury began
