Read previewScrolling through the profiles on OkCupid, Anna Akbari was drawn to a man who seemed handsome, witty, and highly intelligent. He was a catfisher — a person who fakes their online identity to trick victims into thinking they are someone else. He'd sent her a forged driving license, power points from his supposed job, and even copies of papers he claimed to have written at MIT. "We didn't know who this person was or why they were doing it," Akbari told BI. "Emily was Ethan, and Ethan was Emily," Akbari wrote in the book.

James Stallworth, CEO of Brownstone Shared Housing, told Business Insider that San Francisco Planning Department staff had an "adversarial attitude toward housing." Brownstone says it is waiting for city officials to approve a change-of-use request so it can continue operating its 4-foot-high sleeping pods in Mint Plaza. City officials told BI that Brownstone still needed to complete important safety upgrades to comply with the law.

One screenshot from a Lyft driver based in Arizona showed a $2.62 ride that took 15 minutes and traveled 4.32 miles. For some drivers, these sub-$3 trips are a symbol of their broader frustrations with their pay. AdvertisementCompared to January 2023, sub-$3 trips — excluding tips — have become more common for DoorDash, Grubhub, and Uber Eats drivers and less common for Uber and Lyft drivers, per Gridwise. Otherwise, the pay would likely increase if drivers rejected these rides since drivers would be more likely to accept a higher-paying ride.

Read previewFor years, hedge funds and prop-trading firms have relied on massive amounts of data and the workers who analyze it to beat the market.

This data shows the salaries that hedge funds expect to pay foreign AI workers in 2023, and its disclosure is part of their visa terms.

But the tech giant's play underscores the market's demand for tech talent — and venture capitalists expect a wave of "acquihires" to hit the AI ecosystem later this year. M&A dealmaking among AI startups is already off to a strong start this year, with 55 exits recorded in Q1 of 2024, per Crunchbase data. AdvertisementThe majority of AI startups are overpriced, said Konstantin Vinogradov, general partner at Runa Capital. AI startups with revenue in the single-digit millions that raised money at unicorn valuations, Dash said, might not even have that option. Those deals don't make sense for buyers, he said, which could lead Big Tech companies or other AI startups to poach their talent instead.

Her success in monetizing her platform persuaded her to try full-time content creation in 2023. Hong Kong-based creator Anushka Purohit decided to dive into a corporate 9-to-5 job after graduating from college instead of becoming a full-time creator because of the perceived financial instability. "The idea of full-time content creation is often more glamorous than reality," she said. Nguyen also said she'll never go back to full-time content creation because of the financial instability. Being a full-time creator can also hurt your social-media brand if you compromise for the money.

Now, ticket prices have increased, and the Parfitt family is looking at flights that cost $5,000 more than initially planned. In October, the family spent $12,093 on four business-class tickets for a January flight on Turkish Airlines.
