KIND Founder Daniel Lubetzky Makes Shark Tank Deal with HummViewer, Quirky Wearable Hummingbird Feeders That Make Bird-Watching Accessible and Fun – Yahoo Finance

Lubetzky will partner with HummViewer to help more people discover the magic of bird watching
NEW YORK, Dec. 5, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Daniel Lubetzky, Founder of KIND Snacks and Co-founder of SOMOS Foods, has invested in HummViewer to make bird-watching an accessible activity for everyone. The HummViewer is a wearable hummingbird feeder mask that allows you to feed and observe hummingbirds up close. The non-traditional bird feeder can be used in multiple ways to experience these amazing creatures – by wearing it as a mask, setting it on a surface, holding the feeder tubes in your hand or hanging the mask like a traditional bird feeder.
HummViewer’s husband and wife co-founders, John and Joan Creed, share a love for the great outdoors in their home state of Colorado. John’s fascination with hummingbirds from a young age grew into a lifetime of learning about the species and a desire to design a feeder that would allow him to get a closer look at these special birds. “Birdwatching has surged in popularity as people crave ways to experience nature and disconnect from their hectic lives,” says Creed. “I knew I wanted to sell the product so that as many people as possible could experience these magnificent creatures for themselves. We’re thrilled to have Daniel’s support to make the HummViewer the must-have birdwatching product.”
Lubetzky, whose own birdwatching hobby took off during the pandemic, was drawn to Joan and John for their unique husband-and-wife partnership and innovative product, which he hopes will allow more people to experience the magic of watching birds.
Lubetzky says, “I never cease to be amazed by the ingenuity of Americans. Don’t be fooled by how goofy this helmet looks – Joan and John have come up with a genius solution for experiencing the magic of hummingbirds up close.” He adds that the investment holds personal significance to him, saying, “My father, who was my role model and best friend, loved to watch birds with my mom outside their house. Since he passed, we have often been reminded of him when we see birds, hummingbirds especially.”
Together with Daniel’s support, John and Joan will scale HummViewer to provide people with a device that helps them appreciate the hummingbird so that everyone can access the magic of this bird without having to take a master class in birdwatching. The HummViewer is the perfect solution whether you’ve been interested in birdwatching and are unsure about where to start or are looking for a new way to get outside and enjoy your surroundings.
HummViewer sells its wearable hummingbird feeders and accompanying accessories for $69.95 on

The longtime CEO of Penguin Random House, Markus Dohle, is resigning from the position at year's end, the book publisher’s parent company said Friday.
Depictions of slavery on TV have come a long way since Roots first brought America’s original sin to our sets. In recent years, series like Underground, The Underground Railroad, and The Good Lord Bird have explored the antebellum period and the complexities of the lives of enslaved people, correcting a long history of African-American ancestors being written as mindless servants and racist caricatures. The new FX series Kindred, which streams exclusively on Hulu next week, continues this wave,
Like any debut author, Chelsea Banning couldn’t help feeling excited about her first-ever book signing ceremony. After 15 years working on her novel, an Arthurian fantasy saga, the big launch was finally on. Her local bookshop in Ashtabula, Ohio, had kindly offered to host, invites had gone out, and 37 folks had RSVP’d to say they’d come. On the day, though, even that modest turn-out proved to be a fantasy too.
The CEO of Penguin Random House, the world's largest trade publisher, is stepping down. Markus Dohle's decision, effective at the end of the year, comes just weeks after a federal judge blocked the company's attempt to buy rival Simon & Schuster. “Following the antitrust decision in the U.S. against the merger of Penguin Random House and Simon & Schuster, I have decided, after nearly 15 years on the Executive Board of Bertelsmann and at the helm of our global publishing business, to hand over the next chapter of Penguin Random House to new leadership," Dohle, 54, said a statement released Friday by parent company Bertelsmann, the German conglomerate.
For Professor Susan Eckstein, a Boston University sociologist, the more than a million Cubans who have fled communism for the United States over six decades are neither genuine refugees nor political exiles. Instead, she says, U.S. presidents “imagined” them as refugees to grant them unique privileges at taxpayers’ expense to use them against Fidel Castro and the spread of communism — and later turn them into Republican voters.

The week was quiet for precious metals prices, “largely due to an equally uneventful week for some of the key drivers of prices,” such as the U.S. dollar, said Caroline Bain, chief commodities economist at Capital Economics. Instead, the focus is on next week, when we expect the Federal Reserve to slow the pace of its tightening cycle with a 50 [basis point] hike, she said. “We think U.S. inflation is set to fall sharply in the coming months and that the Fed will start easing policy in late 2023, giving a boost to all precious metals prices.”

Borrowing at a key Federal Reserve facility long associated with providing emergency loans to banks has been edging higher, recently climbing to over $10 billion for the first time in more than two years, a development market participants are eyeing for signs it could herald trouble in the financial system. That said, if borrowing continues to rise, it could signal trouble at a time when many are already worried very aggressive Fed rate rises might break something in the financial system. Rising usage could also mean financial sector liquidity is running short, which could cause the Fed to slow or bring an early stop to efforts to shrink the size of its balance sheet.
