A roundup of budget shoes and deals to save you money

The notion of cheap cycling shoes might, to some, feel like hypocrisy, especially because the best cycling shoes nowadays are anything but cheap.

What you want is good value for money, or the best product within budget constraints. Therefore below, we outline a few picks of cheap cycling shoes, as well as a roundup of the best deals, all with the aim of helping you get a little bit more for your money.

Microsoft is in talks to buy wildly popular video sharing platform TikTok from Chinese owner ByteDance, and the deal could go as high as $50 billion — the latest valuation given to TikTok by its investors, according to a recent Reuters report.

But other aspects—like profitability and a strong direct-to-consumer connection—have taken on even more importance, sources said. Diversity, too, has become a priority for leaders as they assemble boards and pick the companies they invest in, with several sources saying they will consciously work to invest in black-owned businesses and hire black executives

Click here to read the full article.

When this year’s Cannes market migrated online, some worried that it might have a negative impact on the business.

Agents and buyers say that while nothing can compare to in-person meetings at Cannes, this week’s virtual markets were productive and offered a blueprint for pandemic-era dealmaking.

In fact, if the Cannes markets are any indication, buyers are hungry for big deals, despite the uncertainty that surrounds whether audiences are comfortable returning to theaters.
