Black Friday came early with these deals on air fryers

Uber shares plunged 34% last quarter. Here's how many millions some of its largest hedge-fund backers lost.
Johannes Eisele/Contributor/Getty Uber's bumpy ride in the public markets continued during the third quarter.  Shares of the ride-hailing giant fell another 34% during the period as investors shied away from growth stocks associated with money-losing companies.  Several of the hedge funds backing the stock held onto their shares during the quarter, absorbing millions in losses on paper.  Here are some of the biggest funds that took heavy losses on their Uber stakes last quarter.  Watch Uber trade live on Markets Insider. Uber's stock struggled to pick up steam during the third quarter.  Shares fell 34% during the period, dropping more than 7% in a single day, after bottom-line losses of more than $1 billion overshadowed its third-quarter revenue beat.   The ride-hailing giant has had a difficult time finding its footing since entering the public markets in May as investors push back on money-losing business models. But that hasn't stopped hedge funds from standing pat with their positions. Some even piled more into the company's shares.  Hedge funds are required to disclose their ownership stakes in public companies on a quarterly basis through 13F filings.  Most of the firms included on the list below maintained the size of their stakes in Uber throughout the quarter. One fund added shares, but the value of the stake still fell because of the decline in the company's share price.  Here are some of the largest hedge funds that got stung by their stakes in Uber during the third quarter, ordered by increasing size of losses.5.

It’s Tory remainers – not Labour leavers – who are the real key to this election | Paula Surridge
A third of 2017 Conservative voters also voted remain. Will fear of Jeremy Corbyn keep them away from the Lib Dems?The first week of campaigning is behind us and the shape of the election is emerging. The critical questions for the next four weeks and beyond are becoming clearer. Among these is whether this election will accelerate a realignment of British politics based on where voters stand on Brexit. The idea that old political tribes are dying has taken hold and increasingly commentators look to the cultural polarisation seen in the US as the trajectory we are following. But, as we’ve learned over the past five years, things are rarely that simple in British politics. The general election is about much more than just Brexit: a winter election brings different factors to the front, not least the potential for disruptive weather events, such as the devastating flooding experienced by parts of Yorkshire and Derbyshire last weekend, and the additional strains on a stretched NHS.Despite the apparent strength of newly forged Brexit identities, they are of little use in understanding how people might react politically to other factors; they simply do not allow us to read off a person’s political views across a range of issues.

Facebook has released Instagram content moderation data for the first time
This story was delivered to Business Insider Intelligence Digital Media Briefing subscribers earlier this morning. To check to see if you already have access to Business Insider Intelligence through your company, click here. For the first time, Facebook included Instagram data in the publication of its biannual Transparency Report, released Wednesday, in which it discloses the actions it has taken to combat malicious content. The report is worth watching as it signals where and when Facebook is actually willing to crack down on its platforms, especially as CEO Mark Zuckerberg doubles down on his anti-censorship stance. In Q3 2019, Instagram removed over 2 million pieces of content in four categories: sexual exploitation of children, terrorist propaganda, self-harm promotion, and the trafficking of drugs and firearms. For comparison, Facebook removed over 35 million pieces of content from the platform tied to the same four categories, along with six additional categories including spam, fake accounts, hate speech, bullying, violent content, and adult nudity. It should be noted absolute counts of content removals are difficult to assess without greater context. For example, it's impossible to determine if 35 million or 2 million pieces of content represent a significant proportion of harmful content on the platform, or whether the difference between the two figures is meaningful. See the rest of the story at Business InsiderSee Also:US Cellular expanded its partnership with Amdocs to digitize sales and service systemsElektra Labs launched an online catalog for evaluating digital health monitoring toolsNike is ending its pilot with Amazon
