Yale invests in crypto funds from Paradigm, Andreessen Horowitz — Quartz
Old school meets new as Yale invests in cryptocurrencies October 5, 2018 at 10:03AM https://ift.tt/2Ru2dUf

Yale didn’t build a $29 billion endowment and a reputation for savvy investing by being conservative.

The 317-year old university, whose endowment is second only to Harvard’s, aggressively invests in alternative assets, from real estate to hedge funds, and now is dabbling in the volatile world of cryptocurrencies.

The university has invested this year in the Paradigm fund, which focuses on cryptocurrencies, blockchain technology and coin exchanges, according to Bloomberg News and other outlets. Paradigm, which has raised a reported $400 million, was launched by Fred Ehrsam, a cofounder of the Coinbase exchange, and a group of former venture capitalists.

The Yale endowment also invested in Andreessen Horowitz’s $300 million crypto fund, sources told CNBC. The university, which has not confirmed the investments, did not respond to a request for comment.

The size of the investments is not known, but Yale’s imprimatur may lend legitimacy to the untamed world of cryptocurrencies. Institutional investors have treaded carefully around Bitcoin and its competitors, wary of huge price swings and dodgy offerings.

Now, in the depths of the so-called crypto winter, some sober-minded investors are testing the waters. Investment banks like Goldman Sachs and JPMorgan are beginning to explore ways to offer crypto assets to customers, and a group of investment firms are launching ErisX, a new exchange built for institutional traders.

Yale’s investing decision won’t erase all doubts about cryptocurrencies. But even a tentative endorsement from one of the US’s most respected institutions could help draw them out of the shadows.

Reducing Native Advertising Deception: Revisiting the Antecedents and Consequences of Persuasion Knowledge in Digital News Contexts: Mass Communication and Society: Vol 0, No ja
Building on the persuasion knowledge model, this study examines how audience characteristics and native advertising recognition influence the covert persuasion process. Among a nationally representative sample of U.S. adults (N = 738), we examined digital news readers’ recognition of a sponsored news article as advertising. Although fewer than 1 in 10 readers recognized the article as advertising, recognition was most likely among younger, more educated consumers who engage with news media for informational purposes. Recognition led to greater counterarguing, and higher levels of informational motivation also led to less favorable evaluations of the content among recognizers. News consumers were most receptive to native advertising in a digital news context when publishers were more transparent about its commercial nature. Beyond theoretical insights into the covert persuasion process, this study offers practical utility to the advertisers, publishers, and policy makers that wish to better understand who is more likely to be confused by this type of advertising so that they can take steps to minimize deception.

How capitalism ruined our relationship with bacteria
This sketch of a woman horrified at the contents of her magnified tea dates from a period of exponential population growth in London, the dawn of Malthusian economics, a time when the Thames was an open sewer. The cramming full of many life forms into tiny spaces was an uncanny microcosm of the imagined, and feared, socioeconomic order.

Customizing the Infograph face on Apple Watch Series 4 - 9to5Mac
Zac Hall, writing at 9to5Mac:

Infograph can show up to eight complications, but that doesn’t mean it must — even if the default version is fully loaded. For me, stripping Infograph down to just the clock is a great starting place.

This requires a lot of Digital Crown scrolling on the Apple Watch to set each complication slot to empty and may be faster on the Watch app for iPhone. The end result is a simple and attractive clock without all of the noise of complications recommended for you.

I love this advice — strip it down to nothing and start adding complications. Hall has some great tips on third-party corner complications for Infograph. (You wouldn’t think I’d need to worry about humidity in Philadelphia in October, but it’s been muggy as hell all this week.)
