BREAKING NEWS BRIEF
Netflix has faced some challenges this year. With the increased competition in the streaming space, they’re having to fight harder and harder to maintain their membership roles. And one of the ways that they’re doing that is by creating “original content.”
While networks shuffle shows, Netflix is looking inside of itself for a fix, and has been releasing an “absolute avalanche” of new programming each month without fail.
In a push like that, it’s pretty much inevitable that they’ll land upon a programming choice that will leave some subscribers upset. Which is exactly what’s happening right now.
Last September, the controversy swirled around the release of a French film titled Cuties. This time, though, subscribers are lashing out over a new show called Hype House.
If you’ve never heard of it, that’s okay, because you soon will. It’s a collective of TikTok influencers living together and all of the antics they share in this “unscripted series.”

LOOKING TO THE FUTURE
However, moderate inflation isn’t necessarily a bad thing. By the end of 2021, The Federal Reserve sees unemployment falling to just 4.5% and inflation rising to 2.4%, which could save U.S. households holding debt an average of $1,404. But that could spell bad news for retirees.
Low interest rates and stimulus checks make it easier to purchase goods and services, which in turn increases inflation. Most retirees depend on Social Security as a key source of income. Benefits are supposed to be protected against inflation, but that hasn’t been the reality.

LEARNING FROM THE PAST
On April 27, 2009, General Motors (GM) shocked the world by announcing it was going to phase out and cease production of one of its most popular brands, Pontiac.
The news came as a shock because Pontiac had been a GM staple for more than 80 years. To say the car brand was popular was an understatement – it was more like an American icon.
Pontiacs were not only popular with consumers, but they were a favorite in Hollywood as well – making appearances in some well-known movies and television shows. Some of the more popular movies and shows that featured a Pontiac included Smokey and the Bandit and Knight Rider.
