The product manager secrets to surviving the 3 pivotal startup phases
To succeed, product managers must demonstrate a specific set of core competencies — no matter where they work. But, the role of the product manager in a startup is particularly hard to define.

The path of a startup is never predictable. As it meanders — discovering, fine-tuning, and pivoting — product managers shape the way forward, far more so than in a larger organization which have… This story continues at The Next Web

David Dobrik said his earnings from YouTube went from $275,000 per month to under $2,000 after the 'Adpocalypse'
Men's Health One of YouTube's biggest stars David Dobrik revealed what he makes on the platform in a video interview with Men's Health. He said his videos used to fetch him just over $275,000 a month in revenue, whereas now he earns under $2,000. This is despite bringing in 200 million views every month — three times what his videos used to get. Dobrik's videos use copyrighted songs and they are a little more "inappropriate" than some other content on the platform, he said. "So right now I'm actually making less money a month on YouTube than I was when I was waiting tables at a retirement home," he said. "Which is pretty crazy." Visit Insider's homepage for more stories. David Dobrik revealed his earnings fell dramatically after YouTube's "Adpocalypse" that saw many advertisers pull their sponsorships from the platform.

Harry Styles threw shade at Zayn Malik in his 'Saturday Night Live' monologue
Will Heath / NBC / NBCU Photo Bank via Getty Images Harry Styles threw some shade at his former One Direction bandmate Zayn Malik during his opening monologue as he hosted NBC's "Saturday Night Live" on November 16. Styles teased a One Direction reunion on the show (which didn't happen), before saying: "I love those guys. They're my brothers: Niall [Horan], Liam [Payne], Louis [Tomlinson]." Styles then paused in thought and said: "And uhh, Ringo." Malik left the band in 2015, saying at the time he had "four friends for life," but later telling press he "didn't make any friends from the band" and "never really wanted to be there." Payne told GQ this year that Malik "didn't even say goodbye" when he left, and that they "haven't really heard from him since." Watch Styles' full monologue below.

John Oliver takes an eye-opening look at the U.S. Census
The Census may seem a bit dull, but it's actually pretty darn important. As Late Week Tonight host John Oliver explains in the clip above, the count can affect funding for certain areas, as well as actual political seats. "It is critically important that people participate in a Census," Oliver explains. "For a start, Census data is used to evenly distribute political power across the states — seats in the House of Representatives are divided up based on population, and after every Census adjustments are made." The worry for 2020, though, is that fewer people may be inclined to take part in it — largely because of the news surrounding the Trump administration's (failed) attempt to add a question about citizenship.

Associated Press/Charlie Neibergall Donald Trump reportedly stalled a planned ban on flavored e-cigarettes, intended to combat the rise of teenage vaping, after hearing it could alienate voters and hurt his chances of reelection next year.

It's just not Woking: Prince Andrew has already ruined The Crown
The thought of having to wait a decade for the Netflix take on the most staggering spectacle of our time – Prince Andrew’s interview – is tortureDoes anyone else wish The Crown would get a bloody move on? Because, sure, despite the new intake of actors, the third season of The Crown is exactly the same as the previous two. It’s slow and staid and sumptuous, and largely about a very rich woman who basically has a very nice time without any sort of incident most of the time. It’s good and impressive and all, but there isn’t exactly a lot of high drama.I can’t speak for everyone but the reason I keep watching is because The Crown is, to all intents and purposes, Better Call Saul With Corgis. The drama isn’t in what we see onscreen, but what we all know will definitely happen later. There will be death. Divorce. Windsor Castle will burn down. Prince Charles will get married to Princess Diana, but declare his wish that he was another woman’s tampon. Prince Harry will dress up like a Nazi. And Prince Andrew will deny having sex with a minor at the behest of the world’s most notorious billionaire paedophile shortly after having a pizza in Woking. Continue reading...

It can also help show how they might prevent that happening.But with technological advances come dilemmas unimaginable back in 1989.

Tesla casually updates Model 3 to be devilishly quick
Tesla Model 3 is advertised as an affordable electric sedan, but it does pack a punch when it comes to performance, especially in the more expensive trim.  But with a recent performance update, sent to Model 3 vehicles over-the-air (OTA), Tesla improved the acceleration numbers significantly, making even the cheaper Model 3 trims faster than many sports cars.  Electrek has the rundown of all the numbers. It gets a bit complicated when you factor in the models that aren't sold anymore, but the highlights are the Tesla Model 3 Performance, whose advertised 0-60mph time has been cut from 3.5 to 3.2 seconds, and the Tesla Model 3 Long Range with All-Wheel Drive whose 0-60mph time has been improved from 4.5 to 4.4 seconds according to Tesla's official numbers.  Read more...More about Tesla, Tesla Model 3, Tech, and Transportation
