Zelensky visits wall street to pitch investors on Ukraine



As the bloody war continues, Ukraine’s President Zelensky rings the New York Stock Exchange bell remotely

His voice is ringing just as loud as the bell, urging investors to support Ukraine in national projects and in its defence against the ongoing Russian invasion.

As he opened the market Zelensky asked for support on his promotional campaign, looking to attract investors to the nation’s projects.

Zelensky took to the virtual stage to speak to American investors, saying that Ukraine is “fighting for everything you have.”

“We have united the whole world around our struggle for freedom, we are liberating Ukrainian territory from the Russian army,” 


“Invest in Ukraine — this will be your victory.”

It is part of Ukraine’s strategy to rebuild the nation, establish a stronger corporate network and attract foreign investors.

It seems many don’t approve of his pitch – Bruce Fenton who is running for U.S. Senate openly calls Zelesnky a scammer and criticised him for being an entertainer by trade turned influencer and politician

Another tweet from an American reads “was this a Saturday Night Live skit”

Disney trumps DeSantis with legal loophole



Disney has outplayed Ron DeSantis by leaning on a decades-old royal clause

In February, Florida Governor Ron DeSantis moved to take over Disney World’s governing body.

It was all in retaliation to the company’s public stance against the state’s “Don’t Say Gay” bill.

But now, new reports suggest this whole plan may have backfired.

Members of the new governor-appointed board argue the previous members stripped the board of its power before they left.

It was all part of an agreement, which was approved a day before DeSantis assumed more control of the land around Disney’s theme park.

Disney is leaning on a property law which essentially makes the company the government of the area.

New board member Ron Peri says the board has lost the majority of its ability to do anything beyond maintain the roads and basic infrastructure.

For just under six decades, Disney has operated its expansive theme park and resort in Florida under a specially designated district.

A board oversaw the area and had free reign of development processes.

Disney also had the authority to appoint district board members.

But this special status came under threat when Disney clashed with DeSantis and his “Don’t Say Gay” law.

Florida lawmakers the passed a bill in February to end Disney’s self-governing status and give the governor the authority to appoint new board members to the district.

DeSantis appointed five supervisors, including a parents’ rights activist and three Republican donors.

But the new supervisors say previous board members entered an agreement before they left their positions – effectively stripping them of any powers. #trending #featured

Avoiding mass company layoffs



What alternatives can companies implement, other than just sacking employees, to save something in the short-term?

Let me give you some numbers: Meta, 18,000; Amazon, 9,000; Disney, 7,000.

No, that isn’t the amount of daily subscribers joining the respective platforms, but the amount of job cuts each company has recently announced.

As sexy as that headline ISN’T – it’s a fact of reality that after spending too much during the pandemic, the financial books need to be reined in.

And yes, this may look good to investors in the short-term, but what does it do for the employee – and company morale – going forward?
