Take a deep breath. It's Friday. I'm Jordan Parker Erb, and today I'm taking you inside the "complete chaos" at Oracle as layoffs and restructuring roil the database giant.

By the way, apologies for the slight delay this morning — we had a technical issue. (Fitting for a tech newsletter!)

1. Oracle insiders describe "complete chaos" from layoffs and restructuring. Earlier this week, Oracle began a sizable layoff, potentially impacting thousands of employees — and those who haven't yet been laid off are scrambling to figure out whether they'll be next.

  • The hardest-hit units, current and former employees said, were in the marketing and customer experience divisions. Some marketing teams have seen their headcount slashed by anywhere from 30% to 50%.

  • In some cases, they said, managers were given the choice of who would get cut, while others had no say in how the layoffs would affect their teams.

  • The Advertising and Customer Experience team was said to have been cut, too. "The common verb to describe ACX is that they were obliterated," one employee said.

  • This leaked org chart shows Oracle's cloud leaders after the company's major organizational changes.

3. Axed "Robinhoodies" say they were tipped off to layoffs weeks ago. Former Robinhood employees said they saw signs of belt-tightening — including plans to shrink office space — long before the company laid off 23% of its staff. Five former employees took us behind the scenes.

5. Nike is offering $5,000 employee bonuses for some tech job referrals. Grappling with internal turmoil and a wave of exits, the company announced the new referral program, which has been met with mixed reviews from employees. Here's what we know.

6. Fifteen current and former Apple female employees say the company dismissed claims of misconduct. After the Financial Times reported the HR unit retaliated against some of them after speaking up about the incidents, Apple vowed to "make changes." What we know so far.

7. Startup founders' mental health is crumbling. Dried-up funding and the stress of a turbulent economic year has piled stress on founders who are already trying to do the impossible: build iconic tech companies. Why some founders "are especially not OK."

8. Elon Musk denied that he's planning to build his own private airport in Texas. Local news site Austonia reported last week that an airport could help grow his companies in the region, but Musk said that's "not true" and it "would be silly." Get the full rundown here.

Killexams : Torches, the Lending Protocol on KCC Opens TOP Mining with Up to 900% Mining Rate

Article content

SINGAPORE — Torches Finance, the decentralized lending protocol, announces the official launch of TOP (Torches Point token) Mining. By participating in the “Supply & Borrow”, users will be able to obtain the TOP rewards, which can be exchanged for TOR (Torches token) with a certain coefficient before the TOR launching.

Article content

Built on the KuCoin Community Chain (KCC), Torches grew to the top lending protocol with its total market size over $3 million. Starting from July 15 at 10:00 (UTC), Torches allows users to get TOP rewards for supplying or borrowing crypto assets available on the platform. In addition, Torches will open “Burning & Boosting Periods” from July 18 and users can boost the mining rate up to 900% by burning Torchlight (the Genesis NFT collection of Torches Finance) within the specified time. Different rarities Torchlight have different Torches Point (TOP) mining boosting buffs. Currently, Torchlight can be traded on the MojitoSwap NFT Marketplace.

With its rapid growth, Torches achieved one significant milestone after another. On July 8, Torches announced a strategic investment by KuCoin Ventures, the leading investment arm of global crypto exchange KuCoin. And then it developed a strategic partnership with KuCoin Wallet on July 9. Torches, the top lending protocol deeply incubated by KCC, will receive multiple resources from KCC, including products, market, liquidity support, etc,. As the infrastructure of KCC, Torches is expected to further cooperate with KCC in the future to Boost users’ asset utilization and enrich the on-chain DeFi ecosystem.

Eric Spark, CMO of Torches said, “We are honored to have received the support of KuCoin Ventures and KCC in the early stages. As the infrastructure of KCC, Torches is committed to being the most convenient and popular lending protocol on KCC and even in the whole decentralized world. In addition to exploring technology and products, we also hope to bring users a better on-chain experience through various activities. TOP Mining is not only an incentive for Torches’ liquidity providers in the early stages, and it also allows more users to enjoy the seamless crypto lending experience that Torches offers. By improving users’ asset utilization and enriching their crypto investment options, Torche will open the door of a decentralized world for more users and accelerate the development of the KCC ecosystem.”

Currently, the smart contract on Torches has been audited by PeckShield and both parties have made multiple optimisations on smart contract permissions, oracle mechanism, and operation logic. With the release of a series of operational activities such as TOP Mining, Torches will significantly increase its market exposure and share, expected to become the first phenomenal DeFi project on KCC.

Killexams : Florida gardening: Tips on how to trim Verawood as it blooms ahead of hurricane season

Q: How can I trim my Verawood? It’s about 2 years old and just started flowering, but the branches are too low.

– Bonny, Florida

A. As the rains and hurricane season begins, several tropical trees burst into bloom this time of year. Royal Poinciana, Jacaranda, Peltophorum, Verawood, and several others are putting on a flowering show. Planting trees is essential to our well-being. Establishing them in their new homes and performing training pruning to form good resilience for hurricane resistance is critical for a healthy, urban forest.

Verawood is a lovely, large shade for gorgeous summer color.

Native to Columbia and Venezuela, Verawood, Bulnesia arborea, is a large, tropical, evergreen tree. The trunk grows relatively straight, with branches high off the ground. The pretty, brilliant, yellow flowers are produced in late spring or summer through fall singly or in pairs. Few pests bother Verawood.

Mature trees have spreading, dense, and rounded canopies. Trees can be multi-trunked, but pruning of the young trees to form a single trunk produces a stronger, faster-growing tree. Bulnesia grows 40 to 100 feet tall; however, it is usually much shorter in Florida, 20 to 30 feet tall by 40 to 50 feet wide. Install Verawood only where there is enough room for growth, such as parks, large open lawns, broad swales, or as a specimen planting.

Recent reports from landscape professionals have said that this tree tends to have a hard time establishing a root system and may suddenly fail during the first year or two if not well cared for during the establishment time. This is new information, not backed by research. However, to err on the side of caution, it is a good idea to ensure adequate water during the first few years and keep an eye out to remove any circling roots at installation.

Prune Verawood to form a single trunk up to 6 to 10 feet before branching. The tree’s growth habit is wider than tall, so remove lower branches when the tree is young to force growth upward. The long drooping branches can be headed back several times during early growth to encourage the desirable upwards growth. Always look for and remove crossing and rubbing branches, diseased or dying wood, and dead branchlets. Also, remove any branches that form angles more than 30 degrees; such branch angles lead to the formation of included bark that splits during storms.

Do-it-yourself takes some studying and practice when it comes to pruning trees. It is an excellent idea to employ or consult a certified arborist to correctly prune trees. Those with certification are trained and tested on the proper techniques for good tree pruning. Find a certified arborist at the International Society of Arboriculture website.

Verawood should tolerate strong winds if pruned for a structurally sound form. There is little information about the wind tolerance of Verawood, but other species with hard, dense wood have proven to be very wind-resistant.

Killexams : Obstacles to overcome before Ukraine grain deal eases global food crisis

Article content

LONDON — The first ship carrying Ukrainian grain through the Black Sea since Russia invaded Ukraine more than five months ago left Odesa on Monday under a safe passage agreement that has raised hopes hundreds of other vessels will follow.

But there are many hurdles to overcome before millions of tonnes of Ukrainian grain depart from its Black Sea ports, which handle most of the corn, wheat, barley, sunflowerseed and rapeseed exports of one of the world’s top grain suppliers.

Here are some of the issues:

Russia and Ukraine accuse each other of planting the many naval mines that now float around the Black Sea. These pose a significant threat and were cited by one crew member on the first ship, the Sierra Leone-flagged Razoni, on Monday as the one thing he feared.

The mines have drifted far from Ukraine’s shores, with Romanian, Bulgarian and Turkish military diving teams defusing those that have ended up in their waters.

It could take months to clear them and there was not enough time to do so before the grains pact came into effect.


In a key step following the July 22 agreement, Lloyd’s of London insurer Ascot and broker Marsh on Friday launched marine cargo and war insurance for grain and food products moving out of Ukrainian Black Sea ports.

Insurers had previously said they were only willing to provide cover if there were arrangements for international navy escorts and a clear strategy to deal with sea mines.

The cost of insurance, however, is likely to remain steep.


Finding enough seafarers willing to sail ships stuck inside Ukraine’s ports is set to pose another challenge.

At the start of the conflict there were around 2,000 seafarers from all over the world stranded in Ukrainian ports.

Only around 450 are left and few are expected to be willing to travel until they see the safe passage of the first ships which will have to be guided around the sea mines.


The deal envisages grain exports from three Ukrainian ports – Odesa, Chornomorsk and Pivdennyi – with shipments to be overseen by a joint coordination center in Istanbul.

The first step is to start moving around 80 ships which have been trapped in Ukraine since the conflict began, some of which had already been loaded with grain.

The second, and more challenging part of the equation, will involve creating a framework in which ship owners and insurers are willing to allow vessels to enter the conflict zone safely to pick up cargoes without the risk of attack or collision with mines floating around the Black Sea.


U.N. Secretary-General Antonio Guterres said the deal would bring relief to developing countries “on the edge of bankruptcy and the most vulnerable people on the edge of famine.”

Ukraine’s customers include some of the world’s poorest countries such as Eritrea in Africa. Ukrainian grain is also supplied into the United Nations World Food Program.

The country can only move around two million tonnes of grain a month by via truck and rail, around half the four million tonnes it shipped through its sea ports before the conflict.

The sharp decline in shipments from Ukraine played a role in driving up global food prices at a time when world hunger is on the rise. The COVID-19 pandemic and climate shocks have also contributed to food price inflation.


Russia’s invasion of Ukraine has spurred food price inflation by driving up prices of both grains and energy. Russia has slowed its natural gas exports to Europe, blaming Western sanctions on pipeline equipment. Western leaders have accused Moscow of blackmail. More expensive fuel drives up the cost of farming, transporting, processing and packaging food.

If the grain export plan succeeds, a decline in global prices of grains and oilseeds is widely anticipated. Supplies are still tight, though, and Ukraine’s harvest this year will be lower than last because the conflict has disrupted farming.

The World Food Programme has warned food prices will remain elevated even if the deal holds.
