You can have two Venmo accounts, even if they're using the same bank account — here's how to set it up
Shutterstock You can have two Venmo accounts using different bank accounts or even the same bank account. Having two Venmo accounts is a great feature if you share a joint bank account with your partner or family member. When someone else adds the same bank details to their Venmo account, you'll get a notification, which can help you guard against fraud and theft. Visit Business Insider's homepage for more stories. If you have a joint bank account, you may wonder if Venmo — the popular money transfer app for iPhone and Android — will let both you and the person you share the bank account with add it to your respective Venmo accounts.  The short answer: Yes, you can both have that bank account added to your Venmo accounts without causing issues.

Microsoft is using its AI power to speed up detection of cervical cancer in India
This story was delivered to Business Insider Intelligence Digital Health Pro subscribers earlier this morning. To get this story plus others to your inbox each day, hours before they're published on Business Insider, click here. One year after Microsoft teamed up with SRL Diagnostics — India's largest diagnostics services provider for pathology and radiology — the duo announced that their codeveloped AI-enabled tool for detecting cervical cancer can accurately spot abnormalities in cervical sample images, TechCrunch reports. The AI model powered by Microsoft's Azure can quickly scan for early stage cancer and deliver insights to pathologists — and it is now going through a process of validation. Cervical cancer claims the lives of about 270,000 patients annually, and 25% of cases can be traced to India. Because cervical cancer is such a prevalent issue in the region — and pathologists have to contend with sorting through a high number of samples — SRL Diagnostics sought to streamline the process of mining through the 100,000 cervical Pap smear samples its pathologists receive each year.See the rest of the story at Business InsiderSee Also:Global consumers are more interested in walk-in visits than telehealthFacebook faces new challenges across three regulatory frontsLivongo exceeds revenue expectations in its first full quarter post-IPO

Why “Connector” Managers Build Better Talent
Sari Wilde, a managing vice president at Gartner, studied 5,000 managers and identified four different types of leaders. The surprising result is that the “always on” manager is less effective at developing employees, even though many companies encourage supervisors to give constant feedback. Instead, the “connector” manager is the most effective, because they facilitate productive interactions across the organization. Wilde explains what the best connector managers do, how to be one, and how to work for one. With Jaime Roca, Wilde wrote the book “The Connector Manager: Why Some Leaders Build Exceptional Talent — and Others Don’t.”

This brazen ice cream thief committed his crime in front of the world
What a heist! Hockey fans tuning it to watch the Hurricanes face the Senators on Monday night saw more than a game. They witnessed a crime. so i’m just watching the @Canes game and...— Brianna Airington (@bairington44) November 12, 2019 A guy, presumably too engrossed in a video to keep an eye on his ice cream cone, turned back to find it missing. The thief, to his credit, had planned to return the cone to the man’s hand — but he turned back too quickly. Now look, we weren’t born yesterday. There is at least an 85 percent chance this was staged by the team, and SB resident Cone Truther, Michael Katz had his doubts off the bat. “My this was a setup detector is going off on this video, BUT that doesn’t mean it’s not still amazing. The kid is holding his ice cream way too low on the cone and high in the air, plus he’s already grinning sheepishly.” Katz’s theory is given big-time credence by the team’s reaction to the theft. Thanks for making us aware of this! We showed it on the video boards during the game!— Carolina Hurricanes (@Canes) November 12, 2019 Maybe they were just trying to find the ice cream thief on behalf of the fan who lost his cone, but I think it’s safe to assume these were probably employees or interns in on the whole thing. That said, I love a good heist movie and this was a well-done crime. Ever since the advent of the paper cone holder we’ve been setting ourselves up as a society for ice cream theft to run rampant. Sure, they’re designed to provide a measure of drip protection — but they also hide the necessary, tactile friction requires to hold your cone, or in this case, realize when someone is swiping it from you while you’re watching a cat video or something. Deep in my heart of hearts I’m hoping this is real and the Hurricanes putting it on the board will bring the ice cream thief to justice.

The Outer Worlds is a cruel twist on role-playing games’ lone hero stories
Private Division Midway through Obsidian Entertainment’s new role-playing shooter The Outer Worlds, I met a man miserably playing a corporate mascot, his head semi-permanently enclosed in a large, ghoulish moon mask. I spoke to him for several turns, hoping there was something I could do to help. But if there was a way to improve his life, he never suggested it, and I never found it. This encounter feels like an encapsulation of my time playing Outer Worlds. Obsidian is perhaps best known for creating Fallout: New Vegas, one of the best installments of the post-apocalyptic Fallout series. Outer Worlds is clearly a spiritual sequel to Fallout, featuring a similar role-playing system, retro-futuristic aesthetic, and penchant for dark humor. But Outer Worlds also reckons with one of the biggest narrative tensions in Fallout — and role-playing games in general. Non-specific spoilers follow for one version of The Outer Worlds’ branching story. Fallout, like many role-playing series, is about an effectively superpowered player navigating a lawless world. Your character usually starts in some hidden vault or other isolated backwater, emerges into a post-nuclear-war hellscape, and becomes a wandering white knight, omnicidal monster, or something in between. Along the way, each game needs to explain what makes you so special — and why the characters you meet, who have theoretically survived decades in the wasteland, are constantly asking you for help. The Fallout games (especially New Vegas) often suggest that you’re more convenient than superhuman. You’re mediating disputes because you’re an outsider, or doing dirty work for more powerful people — either because you’re a newcomer who needs money, or if you’re the type of virtuous character I play, because you’re honestly kind of a sucker. But by the end of the game, you’re still one of the most important people in the world. Unfreeze more smart people The Outer Worlds has a similar premise. Instead of a Mad Max-inflected Earth with a ‘50s Raygun Gothic aesthetic, it portrays a far future where the Gilded Age of robber barons never ended. Huge companies with old-timey names like “Auntie Cleo’s” have colonized a solar system called Halcyon, turning its planets into nightmarish company towns, hardscrabble survivalist compounds, or a labyrinthine prison. And instead of coming from a vault, your protagonist is an unfrozen passenger on the Hope, a long-lost ship that apparently holds some of Earth’s brightest minds in suspended animation. But Outer Worlds doesn’t bother with false modesty. From its first few minutes, you’re effectively one of the most exceptional people in the known universe, and an eccentric scientist named Phineas Welles has dispatched you to save Halcyon from a terrible fate. The solar system has been mismanaged beyond repair by a corrupt corporate board. Phineas explains that there’s only one solution. Is it rallying the downtrodden but resourceful people of Halcyon to overthrow their overlords, drawing on their shared knowledge to build a better future? No, that would be silly. You have to unfreeze more extremely smart people from your ship, then ask them to save the world. Outer Worlds is a political polemic built on video game logic. As many reviews have pointed out, the game harshly critiques corporations that exploit people. But Phineas’ alternative isn’t giving more power to the exploited. It’s giving Hope passengers the equivalent of an RPG protagonist’s “good” option: drop into an unfamiliar society, spend a few minutes talking to the residents, and single-handedly fix all their problems. You can read this as a self-aware bit of meta text — most role-playing games are about noblesse oblige, and Outer Worlds just cops to it. In-world, though, it’s also remarkably dark social commentary. Fallout games, for all their grim set dressing, are about people building a new life in the ruins of a fallen world. Societies have appropriated pre-apocalyptic symbols (from Elvis to the Atom Bomb) in creative ways, and characters have at least the illusion of agency. Many of Halcyon’s inhabitants, by contrast, seem irreparably broken by capitalism. Company town citizens suffer under horrific and draconian rules, too, indoctrinated by corporate propaganda to imagine a better life. Defectors are either indiscriminately violent “marauders,” rebels who are revealed to be callous and bitter, or genuine idealists who struggle to make a difference. Halcyon’s decaying corporations poison everyone they touch I’m used to the ridiculously powerful conversation options in Fallout games. But I felt almost guilty using speech checks in Outer Worlds, because its characters seemed so pathetically eager to be manipulated. I could walk away from fights by giving security guards a rare word of kindness, or infiltrate an office by transparently playing on corporate lackeys’ insecurities. It’s as if Halcyon’s creaky, decaying corporations poison everyone they touch — and the Hope’s passengers aren’t simply smart or strong, they’re uncorrupted by the rot. No wonder Phineas is so interested in them. But over dozens of hours of planet-hopping, Outer Worlds undercuts these neat technocratic solutions. It’s hard to feel like a good person in Halcyon. If somebody asks you to save their assistant from monsters, your reward is hearing about how a dead protege would have damaged their career. Help somebody find their fallen comrades, and they’ll turn out to be indirectly involved in the killing. The game’s creepiest quest has you investigate an “early retirement” program for underprivileged citizens. It’s far more horrific than it sounds… but you can’t do anything to change it, and in the context of Halcyon’s bureaucracy, that makes perfect sense. Outer Worlds ends with an epilogue similar to Fallout: New Vegas’, with a narrator explaining how you shaped Halcyon’s future. Unlike Fallout, The Outer Worlds offers a pretty clearly “good” and “evil” final choice, not a handful of morally varied options. My good decision, though, made me feel surprisingly small. Yes, I had technically saved Halcyon. But I’d done it by nudging the levers in a system that was far too big to control, then watching the effects play out once they were too late to stop. I didn’t feel like a hero forging my own destiny — just a cog turning the wheels of history, like everybody else.

This story was delivered to Business Insider Intelligence Fintech Pro subscribers earlier this morning.

Poland's prime minister accused Netflix of implying the country was responsible for death camps in a Nazi documentary
Reuters Poland's prime minister has accused Netflix of "rewriting history" in their new documentary about Nazi death camps.

Spotify Free music now plays on Sonos speakers
The $99 Sonos-compatible Symfonisk speaker sold by Ikea. | Image: Ikea Sonos is today adding a long-awaited feature to its whole-home audio solution: Spotify Free streaming support. Now you can buy an entry-level Symfonisk speaker for $99 from Ikea and start listening to Spotify immediately — no need for a Premium account that would cost more than the speaker (almost $120) after the first year. Spotify has 248 million monthly users, of which only 113 million are paying subscribers. Spotify Free on Sonos lets you shuffle playback of the entire Spotify catalog. It also features 15 on-demand playlists, including personalized playlists like Discover Weekly, Release Radar, and Daily Mix as well as curated faves like RapCaviar. Spotify Free streams can be played through Sonos speakers directly from Spotify (using Spotify Connect) or via the Sonos app if you prefer, just like Spotify’s ad-free Premium accounts that offer the luxury of unrestricted playback. Sonos already supports a variety of subscription-free music and radio services. With today’s announcement, the company hopes to entice a hundred million more Spotify users to buy into the Sonos sound garden. Something that benefits Ikea too, through its Sonos partnership to develop and sell the budget Symfonisk speaker range. Bringing affordable listening to the many people “Spotify Free users will now be able to stream directly to their Symfonisk speakers using the Sonos app or Spotify connect, bringing affordable listening to the many people,” said Johanna Nordell, Business Developer for Ikea’s Home Smart division. Spotify Free can be added after applying a software update that’s rolling out to all Sonos-branded speakers today.

5 women tried Outdoor Voices' TechSweat leggings — we unanimously agreed that they're some of the best we've ever worn
  In 2018, Outdoor Voices launched TechSweat — a collection of lightweight workout gear that's cool to the touch and specially designed for hot, sweaty workouts. TechSweat includes staples ranging from leggings to crop tops and skorts, and prices from $45 to $95 per item. Recently, the TechSweat leggings underwent a fit update that gave them a new waistband, along with new colors. To see how the leggings stacks up, Insider Picks tested the new TechSweat leggings ($75-$95) in our own workouts. Find our (unanimously positive) verdicts below.  Outdoor Voices (OV) is, in large, partly defined by its unusual ability to appeal to both athletes and leggings-are-for-Sunday-errands athleisurites. The company recently released an athletic collection that manages to keep its cool aesthetic intact while supercharging the clothing's functionality. TechSweat, built for severely sweaty, no-frills workout classes, gets its namesake from OV's relatively new TechSweat material: breathable, sweat-wicking, surprisingly cool-to-the-touch, and extremely pliable thanks to four-way stretch. The shorts promise to be the lightest and smoothest you'll ever wear, and the leggings to withstand the high-intensity, high-sweat exercises that feel like they're being hosted in the fiery brimstone of hell on a Monday morning. You can shop it in all your workout basics — leggings, bras/crops, tanks, shorts/skorts — and prices range from $45 for crop tops and flex shorts to $95 for two-tone leggings. To see if the TechSweat material was really all it was chalked up to be, we had five women on the Insider Picks team put the TechSweat leggings to the test. You can find our personal experiences below, but the gist of it is this: these are great workout leggings.  At first glance, the collection looks like any other Instagrammable pair designed by the company: high waists; flattering, intuitive seaming; and rich colors with names like Papaya and Baltic. But on the body — and, more importantly, in your spin class — there's no mistake that these leggings were built first and foremost for exercise. The material is soft and smooth and still works to somewhat sculpt the body, but doesn't catch or hold heat. It's responsive, flexible, and lightweight enough to escape notice during exercise. For us, it meant our attention could remain on our exercise, rather than on how quickly we could bail.  All in all, TechSweat gear manages to marry OV's calling card style with a high, unexpectedly utilitarian performance level. We suggest ordering your typical size. Expect to spend a lot of time in them.  We worked out in Outdoor Voices' TechSweat leggings. Here's what we thought:TechSweat 3/4 Leggings Outdoor Voices TechSweat 3/4 Leggings, $85 I am supremely picky about leggings. I don't like to own pairs that are specifically for workouts or specifically for lounging — I want the pairs that I'm happy to wear for either of those things, and the TechSweats do not disappoint. The material is incredibly stretchy and thin, but I never worry that it'll become see-through when I bend over. Instead, the thinness contributes to their breathability, responsiveness, and gentle supportiveness. The waistband is high and thick, so it stays secure over my hips, but it's not so stiff that I feel like I'm being squeezed in half, which is a huge pet peeve of mine with a lot of HIIT-specific leggings. They fit true-to-size,  Overall, I just really love this pair and I wear them all the time, both at the gym and on the weekends. I didn't have a great experience with the Springs leggings, so I'm really glad I gave OV a second chance with these. And now they're the ones I recommend to any friends (or readers) looking for a good pair. —Sally Kaplan, Insider Picks editor  TechSweat Two-Tone Kneecap Outdoor Voices TechSweat Two-Tone Kneecap, $45 After trying a different pair of OV leggings and not loving them, I have to admit that I was ready to write off the brand. However, these TechSweat leggings have whirled me around 180-degrees to become a fan. At first glance, I thought I maybe should've sized up, but they turned out to be very stretchy and forgiving, and my usual size fit perfectly. The waistband is a little stiffer than the legs, providing structure and support, while the rest of the leggings are flexible and breathable. If you have an intense workout or tend to sweat more in general, I do think the fabric will show your sweat — but if you don't care, you'll love the fit and feel for activities from running to HIIT workouts.   I appreciate the inclusion of the back pocket, though to quell my paranoia, I do wish it was a zipped one instead. The brand's signature color-blocking design looks great. I have this idea in my head that cropped leggings make my already-short legs look even shorter, so I normally only buy full-length leggings, but OV's design (I got the Provincial Blue/Baltic color) really flatters my body! — Connie Chen, Insider Picks reporter TechSweat 7/8 Two-Tone Leggings Outdoor Vocies TechSweat 7/8 Two-Tone Leggings, $57 I'm particularly picky when it comes to leggings — it's hard to find a pair that are comfortable, can power through all kinds of workouts, and look great, too. When I find that trifecta, I get a little obsessed, like I am with this pair from Outdoor Voices. The first thing I noticed slipping these on was how soft, stretchy, and lightweight they are. I'm always a little hesitant about such lightweight leggings as many lack support, but these are equal parts supportive and breathable — a winning combination for sweaty workouts. The high waistband keeps everything secure while you run, stretch, or bend, but it doesn't dig into your stomach like other high-waisted pants have a tendency to do. The two-toned blue color is really pretty, but also super flattering and although these are lighter colors, I haven't had any issues with sweat marks. Beyond practicalities, I love the way these make my legs and butt look and I would (actually, make that will) definitely buy another pair. — Remi Rosmarin, Insider Picks reporter See the rest of the story at Business InsiderSee Also:The best men's gym shortsAll the new movies you can watch on Disney+ — from the live-action 'Lady and the Tramp' to holiday comedy 'Noelle'33 unique and interesting gifts you didn't know you could find on Amazon

The Musician Who Wants to Be the ‘King of R&B’
Last year, the Atlanta-based singer-songwriter Jacquees posted a lofty declaration on Instagram just six months after releasing his debut studio album, 4275. “I just wanna let everybody know that I’m the king of R&B right now—for this generation,” he said in the December video. “I understand who done came and who done did that and that and that, but now it’s my turn.” The claim drew swift criticism from fans online, as well as from music-industry veterans such as Diddy, Tyrese, and Tank.Amid the flurry of negativity, the 25-year-old singer held his ground, telling Rolling Stone soon after the controversy, “I definitely know that R&B can depend on me. I’m the king. I’m in first place of my generation.” For all his braggadocio, the singer born Rodriquez Jacquees Broadnax is also a good-humored entertainer; in the same interview, he admitted that his favorite meme is one in which his trademark melisma is compared to the sound a faltering car might make. On Friday, the artist released his new album, which is fittingly titled King of R&B. The record is at once a winking acknowledgement of criticisms levied against Jacquees and a refreshing work of classically inspired R&B at a time when the genre is heavily populated by more experimental sounds.The 18-track album opens with a T.I.-assisted song called “King,” on which Jacquees plays the audio from his contentious December video before crooning about how easily he sells out shows. After “Round II,” a slow jam about exactly what its title suggests, Jacquees again pokes fun at his detractors in “EEeee,” which is how online jokes tend to phoneticize his vocal runs. The album’s third track, “EEeee” features fellow Georgia native TK Kravitz, a 22-year-old vocalist who first attracted attention as part of the duo TK-N-Cash. King of R&B is peppered with other young Atlanta features, including the rappers Lil Baby and Lil Keed, as well as the singer Summer Walker, whose debut album Over It soared to the top of the Billboard 200 chart last month. “Verify,” a single featuring Young Thug and Gunna, is a highlight: Jacquees’s vocals are mellifluous enough to make the line “Yes I love your physical / but it’s your energy” seem sentimental. The interplay between Thug and Gunna is dynamic and layered, a welcome return to the kind of rap-R&B collaborations that were everywhere in the early aughts.On King and in radio interviews, Jacquees seems well aware of the position he occupies in both R&B and the music industry writ large. His sound, like that of Walker and fellow R&B darling Ari Lennox, is a youthful interpolation of the genre’s beloved hallmarks: soulful grooves, borderline-saccharine romantic sentiments, and sultry bops. Jacquees’s music is full of longing (and his lyrics sometimes skew lascivious). There is no ambivalence in his songwriting, or in his voice; he makes R&B that begs, R&B that sways. On King, Jacquees refuses to dial back his signature vocal flourishes, and the record is better for it. He is admittedly breathy at times, and at others his pitch could use some modulation. But these are forgivable imperfections that, when taken alongside his exuberance, signal an artist with undeniable—if still unrefined—talent.Compare Jacquees’s output with the music of the other artists most often invoked as generational titans: the Virginia-born singers Chris Brown and Trey Songz. The 30-year-old Brown has made a habit of releasing bloated, directionless albums, and his recent collaborations have been cynical productions (not to mention he has a lengthy history of assault). Now a father, the 34-year-old Songz is still a heartthrob, but his latest album was a strange arrangement of sexified clunkers that lacked the verve of his previous records. For the young R&B listener today, what’s appealing about a singer, even one who “Invented Sex” 10 years ago, calling you an animal while being off-beat?Though plenty of newer artists are making the genre their own, the case for Jacquees is fundamentally an argument for the continued relevance of the kind of R&B that was popularized in the ’90s—the music that soundtracked long nighttime drives to a lover’s home, the ballads that would turn up the heat at any party, the songs that featured music videos in which leather-clad men pleaded for women to return to them. 4275 was threaded together with a clear appreciation for the music of Jodeci and Boyz II Men, and of forerunners such as The Temptations. This inclination reverberates throughout King of R&B, too, but Jacquees avoids using nostalgia as a crutch, which his sometime-collaborator Tory Lanez has been guilty of.Jacquees’s lyrics are more modern than those of his predecessors, but some of the most market-friendly alliances across King of R&B are predictable. On “All You Need,” for example, the Migos rapper Quavo provides a lethargic verse on which he sing-raps in a forgettable cadence. Future appears on “What They Gone Do With Me,” another filler track that doesn’t deploy either artist to noteworthy effect. King could’ve easily trimmed 5 tracks from its roster, but when Jacquees focuses on his strengths, he’s an indisputably compelling performer. He may not be the king of R&B yet, but he’s getting there.
