first_imgLAS VEGAS — Despite rumors that he is headed to Chip Ganassi racing next year — and though team owner Chip Ganassi has confirmed that Jamie McMurray won’t return to the No. 1 Chevrolet in 2019 — Kurt Busch says he remains unsigned beyond this season.Busch is driving the No. 41 Ford as one of four Stewart-Haas Racing entries in the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series Playoffs, which start with Sunday’s South Point 400 at Las Vegas Motor Speedway (3 p.m. ET on NBCSN, PRN and SiriusXM NASCAR Radio).RELATED: Report: McMurray out of No. 1 in 2019The contract limbo has become familiar territory for Busch in recent years. Last season, Stewart-Haas declined to pick up Busch’s option before re-signing him later to a one-year deal. This season, Busch has acknowledged fielding offers from more than one team but has yet to announce his plans for next year.“It’s all the same stuff that I’ve been through before, and I don’t look at it like a (distraction),” Busch said. “The contracts that I signed when I was a rookie or a younger guy, they were five-year deals. And now, as of late, I haven’t signed anything that was more than two years.”Busch, however, doesn’t think the uncertainty of his future will affect his prospects for a second Cup title.“It doesn’t matter in this day and age what’s going on behind the scenes,” he said. “It’s just a matter of executing when you’re at track, and there are so many things that are out of your control in a race on the track that it doesn’t matter what’s going on outside the car.“So each week, when I fire up the car for the first Friday practice session, that’s the best feeling, ‘cause I know that I’m going into a zone that I can control the most, and that keeps me away from having to think about other stuff during the week.”last_img read more

first_imgThe Dos and Don’ts of Brand Awareness Videos selena larson Facebook is Becoming Less Personal and More Pro… Related Posts A Comprehensive Guide to a Content Auditcenter_img Tags:#community#Fundraising#Reddit#Subreddit Reddit, one of the most popular sites on the Internet for sharing news, memes, and stories of inspiration, has raised $50 million in funding, and members of the community, known as “redditors,” might be getting a piece of it.People on Reddit have made the site the massive success it is today—it’s played an integral role in spotting Internet trends long before the masses do. So Reddit CEO Yishan Wong said in a blog post that investors are prepared to give 10% of their shares back to community members. How, exactly, that works remains to be seen. Of course, the Reddit community isn’t entirely PG. Recently, the site was home to a subreddit—Reddit slang for a mini community—called The Fappening, which was dedicated to dispersing nude photos of celebrities stolen from their iCloud accounts. It took a week for Reddit to shut down The Fappening. Y Combinator president Sam Altman led the funding round. He told Recode he disagreed with how the company handled the iCloud breach, but said that “their heart is in the right place.” Hopefully the same can be said for the community investors are giving shares to.Other investors include Peter Thiel, Ron Conway, Paul Buchheit, Jared Leto, Jessica Livingston, Kevin and Julia Hartz, Mariam Naficy, Josh Kushner, Calvin Broadus Jr. (Snoop Dogg), and Yishan Wong.See also: How To Host A Reddit AMAWong said that although Reddit is now flush with cash, the company is staying humble, and if anything, the fundraise means the company with more than 60 employees needs to work harder.“An investment like this doesn’t mean we’re rich or successful,” he wrote. The money will be used to staff up product development and community management teams, as well as to work with third-party developers to increase the company’s mobile presence. Reddit recently launched its first official mobile application, an AMA app for the site’s popular “Ask Me Anything” question and answer sessions.Prior to this raise, Reddit raised a $100,000 seed round from Y Combinator back in 2005.Photo by Eva Blue Guide to Performing Bulk Email Verificationlast_img read more

So far he didn’t train but the pain goes down second by second, which is good, and then in the moment when he can deal with it, he is on the pitch, and in the moment he is on the pitch we’ll make a decision.”But it looks good for Trent.” About the authorFreddie TaylorShare the loveHave your saylast_img read more
