John Cusack Declares ‘We All Have Our Purpose’ in Amazon’s Twisted ‘Utopia’: Watch Trailer

Are you ready to dive into the conspiracy?

The first teaser trailer for Amazon Prime Video’s Utopia dropped Thursday during its virtual [email protected] panel, setting the table for the twisted dramatics that await audiences when the series drops this fall. The eight-episode series hails from Gone Girl author Gillian Flynn, who is an executive producer.

Based on the U.K. series of the same name, Utopia follows a group of young adults who meet online and are mercilessly hunted by a shadowy deep state organization after they come into possession of a near-mythical cult underground graphic novel — they discover the conspiracy theories in the comic’s pages may actually be real and are forced into the dangerous, unique and ironic position of saving the world.

When the Dodgers open their season Thursday, Major League Baseball would you like to watch with your phone in hand.

With ballparks closed to the public because of the coronavirus, at least for now, fans will experience the 2020 season almost entirely through television. What better time, the league believes, to get fans hooked on betting on baseball?

Not actual betting, of course, at least not through MLB. But the league plans to tempt fans to bet on the results of games, and on plays within those games, with contests that offer cash prizes.

Will the Dodgers win, or will the San Francisco Giants? How many batters will Clayton Kershaw strike out? In his next at-bat, will Cody Bellinger hit a

The FTSE 350 managed to make a 2pc increase last week, meaning more Telegraph Fantasy Fund Manager portfolios will be in the green compared to last week’s downturn. Luxury car manufacturer Aston Martin Lagonda and silver & gold specialist Hochschild Mining were among the top performers, with online retailer AO World struggling along with Dixons Carphone. This week we will get half year results from Unilever and a quarterly-update from Vodafone.

Unilever first-half results: Thursday 23 July

Despite the relative defensive nature of its business, Unilever’s shares are down year-on-year. This is partly down to a weak end, by Unilever’s high standards at least, to 2019. Back in December the company dished out a mild profit warning, noting that sales for the year would come in below guidance. Underlying revenues ultimately rose 2.9pc year-on-year, below the company’s long-term target range of 3pc

Five Alternative Data Points to Watch in the Covid-19 Economy

(Bloomberg Opinion) — During normal times, traditional economic data work fine, offering reliable insight into growth, employment, prices and all sorts of other aspects of the U.S. economy. The drawback is that delays of as long as a month or even a quarter make some of the data of limited use during times like these, when a pandemic has thrown the entire economy off kilter. So there’s a case to be made for the merits of alternative data — everything from new infection rates to apartment rental rates near college campuses — which can offer daily reads of the state of the economy, provided they are used with the appropriate caveats. We recently asked several Bloomberg Opinion writers to cite some of the non-conventional metrics they’re paying attention to during the coronavirus recession.

The coronavirus pandemic has radically changed the work environment. With more employees forced to work remotely to maintain social distancing, there has been a surge in demand for computer and computer peripherals.

Home to Office Transformation Boosts PC Peripheral Sales

3 Cybersecurity Stocks to Watch

Organizations across the world have been fretting over the issue of cybersecurity for long. The ever-evolving nature of cyberattacks makes it difficult for organizations to keep pace. Cyberattacks are responsible for massive losses and are likely to cost companies almost $5.2 trillion annually, per Absolute Markets Insights data.

Cybercriminals use various ways to attack systems, including ransomware, denial-of-service, SQL injection attack, etc. Notably, ransomware is the most profitable malware, causing maximum financial damages to an individual or organization. It infects a computer to encrypt files or systems. Typically, the victim has to cough up a ransom amount for data retrieval.

Markedly, per Coveware, ransomware is estimated to have caused global damage worth $11.5 billion to organizations in 2019.

We had got an idea about the gravity of damages caused by a ransomware when organizations were affected by two back-to-back ransomware attacks — WannaCry in May and Petya in June 2017.
