A pedestrian carrying an umbrella walks along the River Thames in view of City of London skyline in London, Britain, July 31, 2023. Finance executives, consultants and headhunters interviewed by Reuters predict subdued deal flows, modest bonuses for most and heavy job cuts in 2024. "2023 will ultimately be one of the lowest corporate finance fee pools in modern history," said Fabrizio Campelli, head of Corporate Bank and Investment Bank at Deutsche Bank. JOB CUTSBanks have already turned to cost cuts to try to weather the downturn, which in a people-intensive business means job losses. And although some bankers expect a tough 2024, others sense an opportunity for European banks from the Basel Endgame.

WASHINGTON, Dec 1 (Reuters) - The White House said on Friday it was prepared to "pause" sanctions relief for OPEC member Venezuela in coming days unless there is further progress on the release of Venezuelan political prisoners and "wrongfully detained" Americans. Any “snapback” of partially lifted U.S. sanctions would mark a major shift from President Joe Biden's new approach toward Venezuela. In the most significant lifting of tough Trump-era sanctions, Washington issued a six-month general license authorizing U.S. transactions with Venezuela’s vital oil and gas sector and a second license authorizing operations of state gold mining company Minerven. Washington had vowed to reverse that sanctions relief unless the Venezuela's Socialist government took steps by the end of November to release political prisoners and three Americans it considers unlawfully jailed, and also lift public-office bans on opposition candidates. The Venezuelan government released five political prisoners in October but there have been no releases since.

"The names of the royals were there in black and white," Saskia Peeters told the Daily Mail. I just did what I was paid to do and that was translate the book from English into Dutch." Peeters also said she worked to translate the book into Dutch with fellow translator Nellie Keukellar-van Rijsbergen.

Duolingo is set to take its viral TikTok marketing to the Super Bowl. The language-learning app plans to run a five-second ad during the Super Bowl game on February 11, Manu Orssaud, Duolingo's chief marketing officer, told Business Insider. It won't be a national Super Bowl ad and instead target local markets regionally. The Super Bowl ad is also set to include a digital component and be "something surprising, something that hopefully will get people talking," Orssaud said. YouTube Shorts' audience skews toward men more than TikTok, and Duolingo is creating repeatable, series-driven content specifically for YouTube Shorts, Orssaud said.

The best employees aren't always the smartest or most confident people in the room. There's a different quality that helps high performers stand out, says Harvard Business School professor Ranjay Gulati: They're trustworthy. "Trustworthiness is the most desirable trait CEOs tell me they look for in their employees," he explains. "Trust is a huge currency in organization, it's the quality on which all professional relationships are built and how they thrive." You might instinctively understand what trust is, but two types are crucial in the workplace, according to Gulati: character-based trust, and competency-based trust.

Israel has been using AI to help it figure out which targets to strike in Gaza. Now several years old, the operation was created to increase the number of available Hamas targets. The Israeli military said that in the hours since, it has already struck over 200 targets in the Gaza Strip. It first began operating in 2019 as a way to find and identify more Hamas targets in the Gaza Strip.

Shares of OneSavings Bank , a U.K. lender focusing on landlords, are set to see its share price double from current levels, according to analysts at Jefferies. The lender's stock has already risen by 30% over the past month after it revealed a rapidly growing loan book. U.K. shares are generally priced in pence, with 100 pence equal to one British pound ($1.27). The investment bank believes the market is undervaluing OSB's stock due to the negative perception surrounding the U.K. economy and stock market. They are also bullish on the stock with a 720-pence-per-share price target, giving the stock a 90% upside potential.

"I'm here to tell the truth about the Biden-Harris record," Newsom said in the early minutes of the debate. "It was more of a spectacle than a debate," Akhavan said. DeSantis has also taunted Newsom to "throw his hat in the ring" and run for president in 2024 against President Joe Biden. According to a FiveThirtyEight average of national Republican presidential polls, Trump leads 60% while DeSantis sits at 12.6%. In April, a group of wealthy GOP donors appeared to sour on their support for DeSantis, questioning his presidential prospects.

Ron DeSantis squared off against Gavin Newsom on Thursday night in a pointless debate. It's difficult to accurately say who "won" a debate, but the night didn't go smoothly for DeSantis. No humans died on Thursday — unlike the "Crash at Crush" — but the night was still a trainwreck for DeSantis' presidential campaign from the very beginning. Following the first GOP presidential debate this year, Business Insider and several other outlets called Vivek Ramaswamy a breakout star after commanding attention away from his competitors. Unfortunately for DeSantis, the legacy of Thursday night's debate likely won't be about how the Florida governor turned his flopping campaign around against all odds.

Barcelona is a decade into transforming many of its streets into green, car-light public spaces. Earlier this year, the city announced yet another major expansion of the project, with a goal of making a third of city streets green by 2030. And as Americans experience an epidemic of loneliness, a built environment that fosters social connection might be crucial for public health. Making a neighborhood more attractive with more walkable, green streets could mean triggering or speeding up gentrification. More walkable communities with high-quality public spaces are much more expensive to live in, indicating high demand.

About 15% or $2.7 billion of Nvidia's revenue for the quarter ended October came from Singapore, a U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission filing showed. Revenue coming from Singapore in the third quarter jumped 404.1% from the $562 million in revenue recorded in the same period a year ago. Singapore only trailed behind the U.S. (34.77%,) Taiwan (23.91%) and China including Hong Kong (22.24%) in Nvidia's third-quarter sales rankings. "I would highly think it's due to data centers as Singapore has quite a lot of data centers and cloud service providers," Maybank Securities analyst Jarick Seet told CNBC. Building data centers, of course!," said Sang Shin, an ex-Temasek and GIC executive, in a LinkedIn post.

Some Amazon Web Services employees are concerned about a large number of departures among its senior engineers. At last month's internal staff meeting for AWS, VP of infrastructure services Prasad Kalyanaraman answered an employee question about turnover among senior engineers, according to a transcript of the meeting obtained by Business Insider. It is one of the many challenges AWS employees are currently dealing with, alongside slowing growth and a more bureaucratic culture, as BI previously reported . As we've previously told Insider, attrition among AWS employees has declined in recent years and to suggest anything otherwise is inaccurate. Amazon unveiled Amazon Q this week, an AI chatbot for businesses, and previously launched CodeWhisperer, a coding assistant for developers.

There's good news for fixed-income investors heading into next year, according to Goldman Sachs Asset Management. After a dismal 2023, next year will be "the year of the bond," predicted Lindsay Rosner, head of multisector fixed income investing at the money manager. "Fixed income is a great place to be," she said in an interview with CNBC. The investment firm recently released its outlook for 2024 and called the recent run of negative fixed income returns in response to "an inflation and policy shock" an anomaly and not the trend. "Given [that] duration can be your friend again, things are lining up to put you in a really good position in fixed income."

In addition to his comedy, actor Kevin Hart owns a plant-based restaurant chain, a tequila brand and an entertainment and production company called HartBeat. The single thread between them all, and the "secret weapon" to his success, the 44-year-old said in a recently published MasterClass course: the power of humor. "Humor has acted like the master key to every door that I've [gone] through," said Hart. In much tougher moments, humor is equally valuable, Hart noted. Making people genuinely laugh boosts their output by up to 12%, found a 2015 study that Sgroi co-authored.

Martin Wiedmann: Salmonella is a microorganism that is very small. You might ingest salmonella 100 times, and 99% of the time you are fine, but then one time you get sick. Wiedmann: Raw cookie dough represents a risk for salmonella, even if you have eaten raw cookie dough in the past without getting sick. Best ways to avoid getting infected with salmonellaTo limit your chances of salmonella infection, cook raw meat and poultry properly. If a spatula touches raw meat on a grill for example, that spatula can also be a source of salmonella.

People are calling out overconsumption, and redefining what it means to be cool on social media. Social media users have long called out the consumerist culture fostered by social media, but recently a group of anti-heroes rose into the TikTok spotlight to battle this kind of overspending using their online platforms. It also reflects a marked change from the kind of aspirational content that people have historically associated with other social media platforms like Instagram. The fight against overconsumption perhaps indicates that creators are trying to redefine the standard of what it means to be cool. The glorification of overconsumption that defined social media may be on its way out.

Nespresso is brewing up competition in the U.S. coffee pod market. Nestlé's Nespresso, meanwhile, has had more success around the world, in a global retail coffee market that the Swiss food and beverage giant says is valued at about $100 billion. Nespresso's rise comes after the Keurig system took the U.S. by storm a decade ago. The company grew its domestic coffee sales by nearly $3 billion in the four-year span between 2009 and 2013.

But the three men topping Israel's hit-list remain at large: Deif, the head of Hamas' military wing, the Izz el-Deen al-Qassam Brigades; his second in command, Marwan Issa; and Hamas' leader in Gaza, Yahya Sinwar. The three leaders are directing Hamas' military operations and led negotiations for a prisoner-hostage swaps, possibly from bunkers beneath Gaza, three Hamas sources say. The objective of the war remains to dismantle Hamas' military and government capabilities, Michael said, which could involve a turbulent period in Gaza after the war. An Israeli military officer, who spoke to reporters on condition of anonymity, said the IDF viewed the elimination of such combat-level commanders as essential to dismantling Hamas' military capabilities. Israel has killed Hamas' leaders in the past, including the group's founder Sheikh Ahmed Yassin and its former leader Abdel-Aziz al-Rantisi, assassinated in a 2004 air strike.

Most grandparents offer some form of financial help to their children and grandchildren. Between inflation, rising housing costs, and increasing interest rates, it makes sense that grandparents and parents may want to help support their children and grandchildren financially. If parents weren't supporting their adult children, they'd have almost $3,000 more annually to put into their retirement funds, that same research found. Studies show that many grandparents are sabotaging their own financial future to help their adult children and grandchildren." Or grandparents might consider cohabitating with adult children and grandchildren to save money.
