Good afternoon.

SCOTUS on Dreamers

The Supreme Court hears arguments on DACA. President Trump has been attempting to end the Obama program that protects young people born abroad and raised in the US without documentation. Some “Dreamers” have been waiting outside the court for days to secure a seat for the hearing, Quartz's Ephrat Livni reports.

Dreamers are hopeful ahead of SCOTUS hearing

It's raining this morning in DC but I'm not sure if that has dampened the spirits of the Dreamers who were already in line yesterday for today's hearing at SCOTUS.

It's raining this morning in DC but I'm not sure if that has dampened the spirits of the Dreamers who were already in line yesterday for today's hearing at SCOTUS. The justices will hear three consolidated cases on an Obama-era administrative policy that deferred deportation for young people who were brought to the US and raised here without documentation. The Trump administration says the policy exceeds executive authority.

Dreamers have powerful allies among corporate leaders. Apple chief executive Tim Cook pushed corporate activism to new heights when he signed a petition supporting Dreamers with his own name—not just Apple’s. Executives argue that they benefit from DACA because it protects both their employees and their customers.

Apple and US businesses earning “trillions annually” urge SCOTUS to protect Dreamers

The US Supreme Court is going to piss off some powerful people when it decides the fate of Dreamers, undocumented immigrants who came to the US as children and now contribute to society. Whether it'll be the US president, who wants to rescind immigration protections for them, or Apple chief Tim Cook

The US Supreme Court is going to piss off some powerful people when it decides the fate of Dreamers, undocumented immigrants who came to the US as children and now contribute to society. Whether it'll be the US president, who wants to rescind immigration protections for them, or Apple chief Tim Cook, who argues Dreamers are vital to innovation and the economy, is unclear. What's certain is that the justices will hear arguments on this controversial matter shortly.

What's going on at WeWork and Uber?

Uber’s CEO backtracks on Khashoggi remarks. Dara Khosrowshahi expressed regret over referring to the killing of the Saudi dissident journalist as a “mistake” during a recent interview, NBC News reports. Saudi Arabia is one of Uber’s largest shareholders.

Uber chief called the murder of Jamal Khashoggi 'a serious mistake'

I may be Dara's biggest public critic, but I really don't think he meant to dismiss the Kashoggi murder. Dara's a lot things I don't love: slow, bureaucratic, process obsessed, lacking in vision and boldness but in the two+ years he's been running Uber, I've never seen him be cruel, mean or insensitive

Dara's a lot things I don't love: slow, bureaucratic, process obsessed, lacking in vision and boldness but in the two+ years he's been running Uber, I've never seen him be cruel, mean or insensitive. There are things Uber doesn't deserve a do over for, but his apology and clarification here seem very genuine to me.

Dara Khosrowshahi on his worst day is still better than Travis Kalanick on his worst. A murder is more than a mistake, but Travis committed a million faux pas under his reign and never felt he needed to apologise for any of them.

The un-CEO. WeWork wants T-Mobile's John Legere to be its new CEO, the Wall Street Journal reports.

WeWork in Talks to Hire T-Mobile CEO John Legere

What a boys club! So SoftBank has been a big investor in Sprint for nearly a decade and they brought in Marcelo Claure to run Sprint about 5 years back. Claure and SoftBank's Masayoshi Son get along really well so Son had Claure come on as WeWork's COO. Now it appears that the Sprint-T-Mobile merger

What a boys club! So SoftBank has been a big investor in Sprint for nearly a decade and they brought in Marcelo Claure to run Sprint about 5 years back. Claure and SoftBank's Masayoshi Son get along really well so Son had Claure come on as WeWork's COO. Now it appears that the Sprint-T-Mobile merger has brough LEgere into SoftBank world and now they're looking and shuffling him over there. So incestuous.... Must be the hair!

Worth remembering that who's CEO explains at best a very small fraction of company performance, at least for mature firms. WeWork is younger, and there are exceptions to every rule, but in most companies CEOs aren't as influential as CEOs themselves like to think.

It make T-mobile away from innovation.

Would it make John un-carrier(ed)?
