Here's why Conservative MPs now believe Theresa May's Brexit deal will pass
Getty Growing numbers of Tory MPs think May's deal will be passed in something similar to its current form. They calculate that no-deal will be taken off the table before March, leaving MPs with a choice between backing the prime minister's deal and extending Article 50. The backlash from constituents against any attempts to delay Brexit would be significant. One MP told Business Insider: "We are very close to a situation where Brexit could collapse." LONDON — When Theresa May's Brexit deal was defeated by a record margin of 230 House of Commons votes in January, some commentators predicted that it little to no chance of ever getting through the UK parliament. However, there is a growing belief among Conservative MPs that the prime minister's deal — probably with a few tweaks granted by the European Union — will eventually pass before the end of March.See the rest of the story at Business InsiderNOW WATCH: Watch President Trump announce deal to end the government shutdown for 3 weeksSee Also:The UK government has set up a 'spectacularly badly run lottery' which could bar most British lorries from Europe under a no-deal BrexitTheresa May accused of running down the clock as she offers more Brexit talks with CorbynBritain has entered 'the emergency zone' with the chances of a no-deal Brexit rising, says CBISEE ALSO: Shadow minister warns Jeremy Corbyn that Labour will be 'destroyed' if it backs May's Brexit deal

China is closing its Everest base camp to tourists after more than 300 tonnes of trash was removed from the mountain last year
China is closing its Mount Everest base camp to tourists in a bid to tackle the trash collecting on the mountain, state media reported. The camp and the mountain will still be open to people with climbing permits, but China limited the permits to just 300 a year. Many more people visit the site as tourists — with over 40,000 people visiting the site in 2015. The move comes amid fears the world's highest peak is turning into a trash heap: 300 tonnes of trash was removed by Tibetan authorities in 2018. China has closed its side of Mount Everest's base camp, a site visited by tens of thousands of people each year, to tourists as trash piles up on the mountain, according to state media. People with climbing permits will still be allowed to visit the site, state outlet Xinhua reported. But Chinese authorities announced in January that they would only issue 300 permits a year in a bid to deal with escalating piles of trash on the mountain.See the rest of the story at Business InsiderNOW WATCH: Bud Light's 'Dilly Dilly' just made a comeback at the Super Bowl with a weird crossover ad with Game of Thrones — here's what the phrase meansSee Also:Man who survived a mountain lion attack by choking the animal to death said he let out a ‘barbarian yell’ and jammed his foot into its neck52 polar bears have invaded a town on a remote Russian island after the ice caps where they live started to meltLeaving social media, cleaning beaches, and dyed hair: Parkland survivors find personal ways to honor former classmates one year after shooting

A short trip to India showed me just how badly Apple is screwing up in the world's biggest democracy
Reuters Apple has failed to crack the Indian smartphone market, languishing behind Chinese brands with less than a 2% share of the market. During a family visit to India, I noticed Apple doesn't have much retail or advertising presence and that it mostly advertises the "cheaper" iPhone XR. The iPhone XR is still too expensive for most Indians, and iPhones overall cost more to buy in India than in other countries. CEO Tim Cook seems to be trying to replicate Apple's Chinese strategy in India, which has a completely different economic landscape. Apple seems unwilling to offer a range of phones at different prices to appeal to a wider audience, and it's lost the world's second-biggest market as a result. Apple is going very wrong in India. In the UK, the iPhone has around 50% market share and Apple is a household name in the West. Not so in India, where Apple has a market share of less than 3%, beaten out by Chinese brands few in the UK have heard of.See the rest of the story at Business InsiderNOW WATCH: Apple forever changed the biggest tech event of the year by not showing upSee Also:Apple may release red versions of the iPhone XS and XS Max as early as this monthHow to charge an Apple Watch, and how long it takes to fully chargeApple CEO Tim Cook promises to investigate the Saudi app branded 'abhorrent' for allowing men to track womenSEE ALSO: Here's one Chinese company's crazy answer to the ugly iPhone notch

Uber's business slowed dramatically in the fourth quarter as it gears up for an IPO
Getty Uber's loss dropped to $370 million last year from $4.5 billion in 2017, the company reported Friday. But its bottom line was boosted by the sale of two of businesses. And its growth rate slowed dramatically in the fourth quarter; sales grew just 2% from the third quarter and only 25% from the holiday period of 2017.

Chicago police release the 2 men questioned in the Jussie Smollett case
Gary Gershoff/WireImage via Getty Images Chicago police late Friday released without charges two Nigerian brothers arrested on suspicion of assaulting "Empire" actor Jussie Smollett and said they have new evidence to investigate as a result of questioning them. "The individuals questioned by police in the Empire case have now been released without charging and detectives have additional investigative work to complete," Chicago police spokesman Anthony Guglielmi said in a brief statement. Smollett, who is black and gay, has said two masked men shouting racial and anti-gay slurs and "This is MAGA country!" beat him and looped a rope around his neck early on Jan. 29 before running away.

Mueller recommends a prison sentence of up to 24.5 years for Paul Manafort after a federal judge voided his plea deal for lying to investigators
Thomson Reuters The special counsel Robert Mueller's office recommended a sentence of prison time between 19.5 to 24 years for Paul Manafort, the former chairman of President Donald Trump's campaign, in a new court filing released Friday. Earlier this week, a federal judge ruled that Manafort breached his plea deal with Mueller's office when he lied to prosecutors about several threads in the Russia probe, including about his interactions with the Russian intelligence operative Konstantin Kilimnik. This month, one of Mueller's prosecutors revealed that they're focusing on discussions the two men had about a mysterious Russia-Ukraine "peace plan" — and the motive behind such discussions — from August 2016 continuing into 2018. Legal experts were flummoxed by Manafort's decision to lie to prosecutors when cooperating would have gotten him a more lenient sentence. One criminal defense attorney, who requested anonymity because they are actively involved in the Mueller probe, floated a theory: "Maybe Manafort was lying because telling the truth would reveal something more sinister." The special counsel Robert Mueller's office recommended a sentence of 19.58 to 24.41 years in prison for Paul Manafort, the former chairman of President Donald Trump's 2016 campaign, in a sentencing memo unsealed Friday. "In the end, Manafort acted for more than a decade as if he were above the law, and deprived the federal government and various financial institutions of millions of dollars," the sentencing memo reads. "The sentence here should reflect the seriousness of these crimes, and serve to both deter Manafort and others from engaging in such conduct."See the rest of the story at Business InsiderNOW WATCH: Michael D'Antonio reveals Donald Trump's 'strange' morning ritual that boosts his egoSee Also:'Like a guy shooting craps down to his last chip': Paul Manafort just made his riskiest gamble yetWillam Barr confirmed as attorney generalA judge nullified Paul Manafort's plea deal with Mueller after ruling that he lied to prosecutorsSEE ALSO: 'Like a guy shooting craps down to his last chip': Paul Manafort just made his riskiest gamble yet

Let's be honest, that Colorado jogger may have killed a starving, baby mountain lion separated from its mom
AP Photo/David Zalubowski On February 4, Travis Kauffman was jogging in Horsetooth Mountain Park in Colorado when he was attacked by a mountain lion. Kauffman managed to kill the animal by jamming his foot into the lion's neck, suffocating it, then hiked out to a nearby hospital. The mountain lion Kauffman encountered appears to have been just a year old, according to Colorado Parks and Wildlife, and weighed 35-40 pounds. Human-mountain lion interactions are rare, but tend to occur when a lion is orphaned or gets pushed into the margins of its habitat by other adult males. When 31-year-old Travis Kauffman went to Horseshoe Mountain Park for a run on February 4, he didn't expect to fight for his life with one of the region's most elusive predators.  Kauffman, who's 5-foot-10 and weighs 150 pounds, said at a press conference with Colorado Parks and Wildlife that he heard pine needles rustling on the trail behind him.See the rest of the story at Business InsiderNOW WATCH: Here's what it's like to be a big cat keeper — from getting hands-on with cheetahs to feeding huge white tigersSee Also:IT'S OFFICIAL: Trump declares national emergency to build his border wallMan who survived a mountain lion attack by choking the animal to death said he let out a ‘barbarian yell’ and jammed his foot into its neckA nurse who pleaded guilty to evidence tampering in the Kelsey Berreth case was reportedly scared of the man who has been charged with her murder

7 great movies you should watch on Netflix this weekend
Netflix Each week, INSIDER rounds up a list of seven great movies to watch on Netflix over the weekend. This week, we're taking a look at rom-coms in honor of Valentine's Day. From Netflix originals "The Breaker Upperers" to "Set It Up," here's what you may want to watch this weekend.  There's so much content coming and going from Netflix that it can become difficult to find a movie to watch. Each week, INSIDER selects new and old flicks you may not have realized are on the streaming service to ease your scrolling woes. In honor of Valentine's Day, we're adding a mix of rom-coms to the mix this week.  You want to punch love in the face? Great. You want a mushy romantic comedy you can snuggle with your significant other to? Done. You want to palentines or galentines it up? We hear you. No matter what kind of relationship you're in — even if it's none at all and just one with yourself — there's a movie here for you. If all else fails, we know it’s Presidents' Day weekend, so we have one pick in here for Abraham Lincoln. From "The Breaker Upperers" to "Lincoln," here are seven movies on the streaming service you should watch this weekend (along with their Rotten Tomatoes scores when available). Note: Not all of these films are available in countries outside the United States."Set It Up" (2018) Netflix Netflix description: "In desperate need of a break from the office, two beleaguered assistants team up to trick their workaholic bosses into falling in love." Critic score: 91% Audience score: 69% People love to talk about "A Christmas Prince" on Netflix, but if you haven't seen "Set It Up," starring Lucy Liu and Taye Diggs as two A-type bosses who get pushed together by their assistants, you're missing out. Netflix really started to own the romantic comedy space in 2018 and this was one of its finest releases for the chemistry between Zoey Deutch and Glen Powell. Many people could relate to two younger, overworked employees trying to please their bosses.  "The Breaker Upperers" (2018) Netflix Netflix description: "For the right price, BFFs Jen and Mel will ruthlessly end any romance. But when one of them grows a conscience, their friendship begins to unravel." Critic score: 91% Audience score: 53% Don't have a date for Valentine's Day? No problem. Neither do Mel and Jen, and those best friends are perfectly OK with that. In fact, they rather break up other people's relationships. If you're looking for something quirky, "The Breaker Upperers" has a "Broad City" vibe. It also has some of the best karaoke we've ever seen performed in a movie with songs from Celine Dion and Boyz II Men.  "I Love You, Man" (2009) DreamWorks Pictures Netflix description: "A recently engaged guy who lacks a best man for his pending nuptials hunts for a candidate with wedding-party potential." Critic score: 83% Audience score: 74% If you need more of a bromance, this beloved buddy comedy between Paul Rudd and Jason Segel will most certainly do. If their antics aren't enough, Andy Samberg and J.K. Simmons round out this hilarious cast.

Elephant ivory, plans for a military combat drone, and stolen ISIS art are just some of the things you can buy on the dark web
Sebastian Gollnow/picture alliance via Getty Images The dark web was originally created in the 1990s by US Naval researchers who wanted a technology for communicating anonymously online. In the intervening two decades, who and what is on the net has become a shifting landscape of drugs and porn, but also things that you might not expect. The dark web has sprawled into an illegal marketplace for user data, illegally trafficked animal products, military secrets, stolen art, and much more.  Although most people have no idea how to access the dark web, their exposure on this hidden, crime-ridden corner of the internet continues to grow. Six million hacked personal accounts were added to the dark web last week, adding to the 6.5 billion personal records already available in the internet's netherworld, stolen from websites where internet users entrust their personal information every day. This leaked data is passed around in forums where hackers gloat about their recent cybercrimes, and scammers go shopping for identities to steal. These forums are just one part of a network of websites beneath the internet's surface, where marketplaces trade drugs, and syndicates peddle child pornography and "hurtcore" torture videos. It's possible there's even hitmen for hire, though no one seems to know for sure. The mystery is a key factor of the dark web, which can only be accessed using special software and, once you're in, knowing where to go. Anonymous and monetized, with difficult-to-trace cryptocurrencies, the dark web is ideal for illicit activity. Such activities stray far from the dark web's origins in the 1990s, when US Naval researchers created a technology for communicating anonymously online. They constructed an internet browser with built-in layers of encryption and its own set of domain names. They kept it open to the public to generate more traffic that would camouflage their own activity. As it turned out, the untraceable web was appealing to more than just government spies. In the intervening two decades, who and what is on the net has become a shifting landscape of drugs and porn, but also things that you might not expect. So, what else is down there?Leaked records of personal information Trustev There are billions of leaked records of personal information available on the dark web, and more are added with frightening frequency. Those records reportedly include everything from Facebook login credentials, credit card numbers, and medical records to hacks of personal computers and devices, including photos and video, even from home surveillance systems. Read more: Your Netflix, Hulu, or HBO Go passwords might be for sale on the 'dark web' ID packages are sold on the cheap containing full fake identities, including people's real names, addresses, credit card numbers, and ID numbers. There's even US voter database records with names, addresses, and the immigration status of 81 million Americans, leaked in recent months, according to cybersecurity firm Carbon Black.   Illegally trafficked animal products REUTERS/Athit Perawongmetha Rhino horn, elephant ivory, and tiger parts were among the products from critically endangered species that international law enforcers have identified being traded on dark web markets in recent years. As international regulations on the sale of many wildlife products tighten, authorities suspect more sales could be driven under the curtain of the dark web. Luckily, though, these wildlife sales remain a tiny subset of dark web transactions, which are mostly drugs and porn. The Islamic State's multi-platform sale of art and antiquities, looted from heritage sites across Syria and Iraq Chris McGrath/Getty Images The dark web was part of Islamic State's multi-platform sale of art and antiquities, looted from heritage sites across Syria and Iraq, and hawked on messaging platforms and via dark web auction sites. In another case, a rare painting stolen in a smash-and-grab heist of a New Zealand art gallery in 2017 appeared to turn up for sale on the dark web a few months later, although authorities later said they believed it was a scam.

The best baby-safe laundry detergent you can buy
The Insider Picks team writes about stuff we think you'll like. Business Insider has affiliate partnerships, so we get a share of the revenue from your purchase. When a new baby arrives it changes everything, even laundry. What detergent should you be using to protect your precious new arrival? Of all the detergents out there, none is better for babies than All's free clear liquid detergent. It protects your baby's sensitive skin and delivers the cleaning power needed for the whole family's laundry at an affordable price. Bringing a new baby home is both an exciting and sometimes overwhelming time. The little one is relying on you for everything including clean clothes and bedding that will not irritate delicate skin. According to Cleveland Clinic pediatric dermatologist Joan Tamburro, DO; "A child who has skin problems may be more prone to laundry detergent reactions. A family history of atopic dermatitis (eczema) also may put your infant at higher risk." As a laundry and housekeeping professional, I've been testing products for companies, agencies, and publications for many years. So with the birth of my first grandchild, I was delighted to be able to lessen one anxiety by recommending the best laundry detergent for both the baby and his parents. The main culprits in commercial laundry detergent that causes skin irritation and allergic reactions are dye and fragrance. By choosing a product that is dye and scent-free, the detergent can be used for not only baby's clothes but all household laundry.  Here are the best baby laundry detergents you can buy: Best baby laundry detergent overall: all free clear liquid laundry detergent Best baby laundry detergent on a budget: Mountain Falls Best baby laundry detergent for the environment: Seventh Generation Baby Detergent Best baby laundry detergent for tough stains: Babyganics Baby Laundry Detergent Best baby laundry detergent for diapers: Rockin' Green Classic Rock Natural Laundry Detergent Powder Read on in the slides below to check out our top picks.The best baby laundry detergent overall Amazon Why you'll love it: If you are looking for a reasonably-priced, effective laundry detergent that is safe for your baby's delicate skin and can be used for the rest of the family's laundry, All's free clear liquid detergent is your best bet. As I was testing and selecting a laundry detergent for our precious new one, I took into consideration the product's ingredients, cleaning ability, cost per load, and ease of use. As a new parent, the last thing you need is a product that makes the laundry routine any more complicated. The final verdict after testing more than 10 products was that All free clear liquid will give a baby the protection he needs from irritation, remove all but the worst stains, not break the budget, and can be used to wash clothes for the entire family. It is also the most highly recommended detergent brand for sensitive skin by dermatologists, allergists, and pediatricians.  It seems others agree with me as well. On Walgreens, all free clear has a rating of 4.8 out of five stars. One reader states, "I'm so sensitive, allergic to everything! This is the only detergent that I can use that doesn't cause a reaction. Even other "Free" products cause me to react." All free clear comes in liquid, powder, and single dose packs. I would recommend the liquid formula, costing about 20 cents per load, because it can also be used to pretreat stains. Just work in a tiny amount of the liquid into the stained area with your fingers or a soft-bristled brush and wait about 15 minutes before washing. Pros:  Performs well for both baby and family laundry, mid-priced, readily available in mass-market stores and online, free of dyes and perfumes Cons: Does not remove heavy stains like oil and mud without the addition of an enzyme-based stain remover Buy All free clear liquid laundry detergent in a 110-load bottle on Amazon for $14.24 or $14.99 The best baby laundry detergent on a budget Amazon Why you'll love it: If you are an Amazon Prime member, Mountain Falls Ultra Fresh & Clear liquid laundry detergent is free from perfumes and dyes and costs only nine cents per load. The last thing a new parent needs is to spend more money. Saving 10 cents or more on every load of laundry can really add up during a baby's first year. Mountain Falls Ultra Fresh & Clear laundry detergent can provide those savings and still protect your little one's sensitive skin. At only nine cents per load for Prime Pantry members, the detergent works well on all but the heaviest stains. The soil and stain-lifting surfactants will work perfectly well on laundry for the entire family. The formula can be used in either standard or high-efficiency washers, phosphate free, and dermatologist and pediatrician tested. Since Mountain Falls is available only on Amazon, you'll find all of the feedback there. More than 71% of buyers give the product five stars. One happy customer says, "The cleaning performance is as good or better than the brand named detergent I was using."  After testing the product on our laundry, I agree. For clothes that are not heavily soiled, it is equally as good as more expensive brands. While you can purchase Mountain Falls Fresh & Clear on Amazon without being a Prime Pantry member, it will cost a bit more. Pros: Perfume and dye-free formula, leaves clothes clean and feeling soft, low-cost-per-load Cons: Only available on Amazon.com and you must be an Amazon Prime member to receive the lowest price Buy Mountain Falls Ultra Fresh & Clean liquid laundry detergent in a 100-load bottle on Amazon for $8.00 (currently out of stock) Buy a 2-pack for $23.05 The best baby laundry detergent for the environment Amazon Why you'll love it: Environmentally-friendly Seventh Generation Baby Concentrated Laundry Detergent also protects your baby's sensitive skin from harsh chemicals. Protecting a new baby is always a top priority, but we should never forget that protecting the Earth is also important. After all, our actions today will affect the world that a child faces in the future. Seventh Generation products adhere to that philosophy and use only plant or mineral-based ingredients. Seventh Generation Baby Laundry Detergent received a 97% rating as a USDA Certified Biobased Product and is never tested on animals. One member of the What to Expect community, Lakewood Chick, says "We use Seventh Generation Free & Clear for everyone's clothes, not just baby. I think it works great and it makes me feel much better knowing harmful chemicals aren't in it." After giving it a try on our baby's laundry, I was delighted with the results. The plant-based enzymes removed tough formula and diaper stains with ease. Over on Amazon, 61% of buyers rated it as a five-star product. The cost at around  25 cents per load is higher but the results are worth it. Pros: Plant and mineral-based ingredients are environmentally-friendly, detergent works well on baby stains and can be used for laundry for the entire family Cons: Higher cost-per-load Buy Seventh Generation Baby Concentrated Laundry Detergent in a 53-load bottle on Amazon for $12.98 See the rest of the story at Business InsiderSee Also:The best double sleeping bags and pads for couplesThe best mattresses you can buy onlineThe best breast pumps you can buy

It showed that commissions are as high as 10% on Amazon's private-label fashion items and as little as 1% for video games and consoles. "There are people that make $100 a day — it's just for side money, it's not something to get rich off," Samuel Torres, an influencer who joined the program in mid-December, told Johnson. Yet, he said, "This program really has potential for big earners." We asked some of Amazon's top performing influencers what their best selling items have been in the past two months:Set of 2 Tovolo ice molds, $9.99 Amazon This high-tech ice mold is designed to create cubes that are thicker and melt more slowly to keep drinks cooler for longer and preserve the taste.

Trump's national emergency declaration is a 'slap in the face to military families'
Carlos Barria/Reuters President Donald Trump's national-emergency declaration will allow him to tap military construction funds to pay for a border wall. Lawmakers have pledged to fight Trump's declaration in court. But Trump's move to siphon money away from projects that could support US troops has been called an insult to military families. President Donald Trump’s plan to declare a national emergency will divert $3.6 billion earmarked for US military construction projects—possibly hospitals and infrastructure improvements—to fund a portion of his long-promised wall along the southern border, a move that experts say is an affront to military families. “I’m going to be signing a national emergency,” Trump said Feb. 15 in remarks in the Rose Garden. “It has been signed many times before … for far less important things in some cases, in many cases. We are talking about an invasion of our country with drugs, with human traffickers, with all types of criminals and gangs.”See the rest of the story at Business InsiderNOW WATCH: I spent a day with Border Patrol agents at the US-Mexico borderSee Also:Trump could tap the military's construction budget to build a border wall — here's what projects could be affectedA sitting congressman just got deployed to the borderThe Pentagon says it isn't working on killer robots — yetSEE ALSO: Trump could tap the military's construction budget to build a border wall — here's what projects could be affected

Watch makeup artist Jeffree Star try the new Kit Kat-inspired eye-shadow palette that comes with an actual chocolate bar
Jeffree Star/YouTube On his YouTube channel, beauty mogul Jeffree Star reviewed two Kit Kat-inspired eye-shadow palettes, which were created by South Korean brand Etude House. The red version of the palette is called "Original," and the pink one is called "Strawberry Tiramisu." Both versions are said to smell like chocolate. Star loved the packaging of the products, as well as the Kit Kat-themed makeup bag and actual candy that came with each palette. While he said the various brown shades were easy to blend, Star said he wasn't a fan of the pink and red shadows; he felt they were too sheer, though he did note that Korean beauty trends tend to lean toward softer, more minimal looks. Watch Star's video below to see his full experience using the Kit Kat-inspired eye-shadow palettes.

An asteroid will block the brightest star in the night sky on Monday, and astronomers need your help seeing it
AstroStar/Shutterstock Sirius, a system of two stars — Sirius A and Sirius B — is the brightest object we can see from Earth. However, an asteroid called (4388) Jürgenstock will briefly pass in front of Sirius on Monday night. Sirius will almost entirely fade for a few tenths of a second as the 3.1-mile-wide asteroid flies by. The occultation, as it's called, should be visible in parts of Mexico, six US states, and Canada. Sirius, a double-star system and the brightest object in the night sky, will briefly blink out of existence for parts of Earth on Monday evening. In an event called an occultation — when one object in space blocks the light of another behind it — a small asteroid known as (4388) Jürgenstock will slip in front of the star for a fraction of a second and, like an eclipse, cause it to briefly dim or even disappear.See the rest of the story at Business InsiderNOW WATCH: 3 horrifying ways the world could endSee Also:NASA's Mars Opportunity rover is dead after nearly 15 years on the red planet.

NBA All-Star Weekend starts tonight — here's all the gear that released from Nike, Under Armour, and more
The Insider Picks team writes about stuff we think you'll like. Business Insider has affiliate partnerships, so we get a share of the revenue from your purchase. 2019 NBA All-Star Weekend is happening in Charlotte, North Carolina from February 15-17. There's plenty of excitement around the sports events and games, but the clothing and shoe releases are also a huge part of the weekend. Brands like Nike, Timberland, Under Armour, and New Era are taking the opportunity to release gear that appeals to both sneaker lovers and sports fans alike. NBA All-Star Weekend signifies a break in the regular season where the league's best players are celebrated and fans are treated with loads of entertainment. While events like the slam dunk contest, three-point contest, and East vs. West game are major focal points of the weekend, all of the accompanying clothing and sneaker releases are arguably a bigger deal. This year, All-Star Weekend will be hosted in Charlotte, North Carolina — and Michael Jordan, who is the owner of the Charlotte Hornets and an alumnus from the University of North Carolina, has a major influence on this year's releases. With a huge assortment of jerseys, hats, T-shirts, and, of course, footwear, these are the items that sneaker lovers and basketball fans alike will want to get their hands on this weekend. Check them out, below:  For this year's releases that may have sold out or releases from previous years, shop all All-Star Weekend-related sneakers on StockX. Farewell T-Shirts for Hall of Famers NBA Store Men's Dwyane Wade NBA All-Star Game T-Shirt, $34.99 Men's Dirk Nowitzki NBA All-Star Game T-Shirt, $34.99 This year marks the final time we will be seeing Hall of Fame locks Dwayne Wade and Dirk Nowitzki participating in the All-Star game. While neither of the players were voted in by the coaches or fans, the NBA made them honorary All-Stars as recognition for their combined 37 years of NBA domination. Dirk is also participating in the three-point shootout on Saturday night. Show your support for these veteran superstars one last time with these All-Star jersey shirts. Air Jordan IX "Blue Pearl" Nike Buy it for $190: Nike SNKRS | Foot Locker | Dick's Sporting Goods Originally released in 2002 as a low top, the "Blue Pearl" Air Jordan IX returns as a high-top in time for All-Star Weekend. As a nod to Jordan's alma mater, the University of North Carolina, the sneakers feature a white, midnight navy, and Carolina blue colorway.  Hometown heroes Kemba Walker and Steph Curry's All-Star jerseys Dick's Sporting Goods Kemba Walker's All-Star Jersey, $120: Dick's Sporting Goods | Nike Only one Hornet made the cut this year, in the form of 7-year point guard Kemba Walker. The former UConn Huskie has played in Charlotte his whole professional career and is starting in the All-Star game for the first time in his team’s home arena. Kemba is ascending as a top-tier point guard in the league, and his hometown All-Star jersey will be a significant artifact when his career is wrapped up.  Steph Curry's All-Star Jersey, $120: Dick's Sporting Goods | Nike Another hometown hero that will be participating in Sunday night’s game is Steph Curry, who grew up in Charlotte while his father was playing for the Hornets. Steph is already a five-time All-star, two time MVP, and three-time champion, but playing in front of his hometown crowd will definitely be a moment worth remembering, and this jersey is the perfect way to archive that memory.  See the rest of the story at Business InsiderSee Also:The best mattresses you can buy online14 cool fleece sweaters that every guy doesn't already ownHow to improve your posture with a few tips and tools

Take a look inside the most expensive zip code in Florida, the mysterious members-only island where millionaires pay $250,000 for access
Miami2you/Shutterstock "Tax refugees" are fleeing to Miami and snapping up ultra-luxury real-estate in the $10 million to $50 million range.

Umami Burger Los Angeles-born restaurant chain Umami Burger features the new Impossible Burger recipe on its menu.  INSIDER tested out how the new version stacks up to other veggie burgers.

Marc Benioff says Salesforce won’t buy a company unless it pays women fairly and employees like working there (CRM)
Justin Sullivan / Getty At the Goldman Sachs Technology and Internet Conference on Thursday, Salesforce co-CEO Marc Benioff addressed sexual harassment and the wage gap in Silicon Valley. Benioff said he now looks at a company's culture and how it pays employees when he's considering an acquisition for Salesforce. Benioff spoke about the infamous Google Walkout, and called it an "eye-opening" example of the importance of corporate culture.  "We have CEOs who are not paying attention to their culture and allowed toxic cultures to emerge," Benioff said. Just five years ago, Salesforce CEO Marc Benioff says that when it comes to acquisitions, it was the technology and product that mattered most. Now, he says, he's made a complete turnaround: The billionaire tech exec says that when Salesforce wants to buy a company, he first does his "due diligence" in looking at the company's culture, how fairly and equitably it pays employees, and its ratings on popular employer review site Glassdoor.See the rest of the story at Business InsiderNOW WATCH: Earth's north magnetic pole is on the move — here's what will happen when our poles flipSee Also:Here's why investors are throwing money at startups that give away their software for freeThe CEO of App Annie, one of Silicon Valley's most popular app data platforms, explains how it revamped its culture while preparing to be IPO-readyHere are the 10 fastest-growing work apps of 2018, according to $9 billion security company Okta
