the kansas city chiefs made a big move up in the nfl draft last night to select patrick mahomes ii, quarterback and passing provocateur from texas tech. they gave up an awful lot, adding both next year’s first-round pick and this year’s third-round pick to go from 27th to 10th. time will tell if that proves to be foolhardy or full of foresight.this should be the kind of move i absolutely hate. i’m a strong believer that teams should generally not trade up by mortgaging lots of picks, and certainly shouldn’t trade away future picks at a large interest rate (where next year’s 1st round is valued at this year’s 2nd). the chiefs gave up a lot of value, paying nearly $1.50 on the dollar to make the move. so there is that big part of me that feels queasy about that.but then there...

joanna glasnercontributorjoanna glasner is a reporter for crunchbase. more posts by this contributor: huge companies in fast-changing, technology-intensive businesses buy startups. after all, they have the money and need fresh entrepreneurial talent to tap new markets and stay abreast of disruption.that’s the collective wisdom about m&a in venture capital and startup circles. it’s also how the venture business survives. though ipos may get more attention, acquisitions account for the vast majority of startup exits and a majority of venture returns.but what if the common wisdom isn’t true? what if companies could do perfectly well adjusting to changing conditions, beating competitors and sustaining enormous market capitalizations without buying scrappy startups?to delve into that hyp...

hasan minhaj of comedy central performs at the 2017 white house correspondents’ association dinner (jonathan ernst/reuters)amid the jokes in “daily show” comic hasan minhaj’s performance at saturday night’s white house correspondents’ association dinner — which took aim at the absent president trump as well as some of the media folks filling the seats in the ballroom of the washington hilton — there was a funny moment. odd, that is, not funny ha-ha.early in his burn-laced act, minhaj implied his hosts told him not to roast trump. “i was explicitly told not to go after the administration,” he said after launching his first jab at the president, looking over at white house correspondents’ association president jeff mason with a look of exaggerated apology.

houston-based power company calpine corp. reported a lost of $56 million for the first quarter of 2017, as compared to a loss of $198 million for the fourth quarter of last year. the company managed to narrow its losses this quarter, despite a mild texas winter and a wet year in the west, which produced above-average levels of hydroelectric power. in both cases, demand from calpine’s natural-gas fired power plants was low, the company said in a news release. calpine also announced on friday that it has cancelled the construction of 418 megawatt natural gas-fired peaking power plant in texas. instead of building the plant, calpine signed a 10 year agreement ......

this is the fourth installment of our game in progress review of persona 5, and it contains slight spoilers for all confidant storylines as played through the game’s sixth dungeon. it’s nothing that will ruin much of anything, though. we promise. you can read the rest of clayton’s review here. i’m rounding the corner toward the final stretch of persona 5, but it occurs to me i still haven’t discussed the actual plot of this immense game that much. (if you want 2,000 words of criticism on neo-liberal systems juxtaposed with jrpg grinds, have i got an article for you!) i want to talk more about the game’s larger story, but it seems fair to wait until i’ve finished it off before really analyzing it. so let’s talk instead about what gives this game, and its immediate predecesso...

when it comes to driving traffic to your blog, one of the most common mistakes people make is spending too much effort on things that barely move the needle. the entire goal of establishing an effective online presence, after all, is to one day cross the threshold where people find you more often -- ideally far more often -- than you spend time trying to find them.related: 3 essential tools to utilize when starting a company blogsocial networks, for example, can be a great way to drive traffic to your blog. but they are not the most dominant force out there. similarly, advertising on social networks can be effective, but only for the length of time you are running them and shelling out cash. it’s yet another machine which, with rare exceptions, does not compound upon its success. this i...

the film world is mourning the loss of director jonathan demme, who died this past week at the age of 73. our critic david edelstein is among those paying their respects: jonathan demme was never a brand-name director like spielberg or scorsese, though he was as great.he saw his job as showing actors (and in documentaries, musicians or politicians) just as human beings in their most brilliant light.i wish i could name and show all his marvelous films, but i'll focus on three:he struck gold with "melvin and howard," a sympathetic meditation on the american dream of get-rich-quick, finding in jason robards' grizzled howard hughes a man whose longing for connection was mythic, and in paul le mat's melvin dummar a dreamer worth believing. to watch a trailer for "melvin and howard" click on t...
