    • Comment: Liz Ann debunks some long-held media 'beliefs' - from the flawed "growth vs. value" debate, to the difference between cash vs. cash flow. She’s sharp and worth a listen..

    • RecapHave you ever ridden in a vehicle with no human driver? Waymo, the leading self-driving vehicle startup in the US, just opened it's completely driverless ride-hailing service (Waymo One) to the public in Phoenix.

    • Comment: This is a huge step forward in the progression of autonomous vehicles. First Waymo completely removed the safety driver in late 2019, then they raised $3B+ in cash, and now they are opening their service to the public... think about all of the things that will change if you don't need a driver...
