    The US proves Russia right with its first post-treaty missile launch

    The US Army hurled a Tomahawk missile into the ocean off the coast of Southern California on Monday in a demonstration of American missile might and—you have to say—hypocrisy. The Pentagon said the test would help develop new medium-range missile capabilities. The specifics of the demonstration—that the missile's payload flew more than 500 miles—underscored president Donald Trump's decision to withdraw from the Intermediate Nuclear Forces (INF) treaty.

    In Bay Area exodus, will Uber follow McKesson to Dallas?

    Uber is getting almost $36 million in government incentives to build what's being billed as a “new U.S. general and administrative hub” in downtown Dallas. At least one Dallas TV station declared Tuesday that the Texas city won Uber's headquarters, only to clarify later in its report that Dallas is a second headquarters to Uber's (NYSE: UBER) San Francisco corporate headquarters. Still, Bay Area residents have good reason to be concerned that this is one Uber ride that will eventually end at the company's corporate headquarters — in Dallas.

    Brent oil rises above $60, buoyed by U.S. inventory drawdown

    Prices for Brent oil rose above $60 a barrel for the first time in over a week on Wednesday amid data that showed a larger-than-expected drawdown in U.S. crude inventories, but ongoing worries about a global economic recession capped gains. Brent crude had risen 13 cents, or 0.2%, to $60.16 a barrel by 0136 GMT, after settling 0.5% higher on Tuesday. U.S. crude was up 12 cents, or 0.2%, at $56.25 a barrel.

    Virgin plastic pellets are the biggest pollution disaster you’ve never heard of

    Some 30 miles north of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, in a township adjacent to a state forest, oil and gas giant Royal Dutch Shell is building a sprawling new plant to support what it sees as the future of its business: making millions of tons of new, virgin plastic. US president Donald Trump visited the facility last week, highlighting the 5,000 construction jobs it has created. Shell, along with other major oil and gas companies like Exxon, sees plastic as one avenue for growth as natural gas prices plummet—and, longer-term, as a way to weather the world's slow rejection of fossil fuels as an energy source.

    Is It Finally Time to Buy SINA and Weibo?

    That slowdown occurred because SINA and Weibo generate most of their revenue from ads. The economic slowdown in China torpedoed companies' marketing budgets, while tough competitors in the space -- including heavyweights like Baidu (NASDAQ: BIDU), Tencent (OTC: TCEHY), and ByteDance -- exacerbated the pain. SINA didn't offer any guidance, but Weibo expects its revenue to rise 6%-9% annually on a constant currency basis in the third quarter (compared to 7% constant currency growth in the second quarter), which suggests that its core business is finally stabilizing.

    Better CBD Stock: Charlotte's Web vs. CV Sciences

Charlotte's Web describes itself as the market leader in hemp-based CBD products, and it's quite possibly the most established brand in the industry. There were already hundreds of businesses processing hemp into high-margin CBD before the farm bill made it legal in every state, but that hasn't diminished the strength of the Charlotte's Web brand.
