Peloton users are complaining about the slew of '80s music in its workouts after it stopped using popular songs named in a $300 million copyright lawsuit

  • Peloton users are complaining that the quality of music has dropped since it was hit with a $300 million lawsuit, and some say it's making them want to work out less.
  • Rhona Harris, who owns one of Peloton's $2,000 bikes, said she's noticed a "huge difference" in the user experience in recent months.
  • In March, Peloton was sued by a group of music publishers seeking $150 million in damages in a copyright lawsuit.
  • Smith was given a shoutout for her 100th ride in a class earlier this year, of which around 5,000 people were logged in to, she said, making it especially exciting when the instructor called out her username.
  • Two other Peloton bike users that spoke to Business Insider said they hadn't had any issues with the music or noticed a change in the music since March.

One chart shows how steep of a decline there's been in the percentage of children outearning their parents since the 1940s

  • An American child born in 1945 had a more than 90% chance of outearning their parents when they became adults.
  • In a 2016 study, Chetty and other Stanford researchers found that the main driver of the plummeting economic prospects for Americans was the widening gap between the rich and everyone else.
  • What had also propelled the prospects of children born in the 1940s — and made outearning your parents a near-certainty — was the postwar economic boom the middle-class enjoyed.
  • Income inequality in the United States last year reached the highest level in a half-century with the wealthiest Americans reaping some of the biggest economic gains, according to the US Census Bureau.
  • New research from economists Gabriel Zucman and Emmanuel Saez backs it up, as they found that billionaires last year paid lower income taxes than the working class.

Chase recently added Emirates as a transfer partner — here are the best ways to use points for award flights and seat upgrades

  • In response to other programs' updates, Chase added JetBlue and — most recently — Emirates as Ultimate Rewards transfer partners in 2019.
  • You can also use Skywards miles to upgrade certain paid flights on Emirates.
  • The "sweet spot" with Emirates Skywards is generally considered to be using miles to upgrade paid flights, but this isn't always the right move.
  • However, Emirates does charge very high fuel surcharges on award flights, and you can "move up" one cabin class with an upgrade, with no additional fuel surcharges involve.
  • Booking a Saver award fare will cost 52,100 miles more for the round-trip upgrade.
  • You can also transfer Chase points to Skywards to book award flights on Emirates, but they are very expensive — both in terms of points and in terms of surcharges.

67% of college students say they’ve had to buy a book written by their professor, and some are fed up with lining their prof's pockets

  • In an interview with Insider, Ward said he was required to purchase a book written by his professor for a class this semester.
  • Regardless of the course, the University of Alabama, and many other schools around the country, actually have rules specifically meant to prevent professors from profiting off their mandatory books.
  • Other schools, like the University of Arizona, write in rules specifically geared towards preventing professors from profiting off their required textbooks.
  • In an interview with Insider, University of Alabama political science major Grace Schepis said it may actually be beneficial to have the class material authors explain their work in person.
  • While rules like those set in place by the universities of Alabama and Arizona prevent professors from explicitly making money off their textbooks, they don't necessarily remove all potential conflicts of interest.

Chicago teachers' strike stretches into second day as negotiations continue

  • About 25,000 educators went on strike with many of the same demands that teachers across the country have clamored for: smaller class sizes, more support staff, higher raises, and more money for schools.
  • The union also wants the city to hire more librarians, social workers, counselors and nurses.
  • And it says there aren't enough teachers for students learning English.
  • Chicago's Board of Education previously released a 71-page counteroffer to the union's demands.
  • An additional $400,000 per year would be earmarked "toward a pipeline for nurses, counselors and case managers." And $1 million would go toward reducing class sizes in classrooms from fourth to 12th grade.
  • School buildings will remain open throughout the strike to give students a place to go and access to meals, Superintendent Janice Jackson said.
  • The schools are staffed by administrators and employees who aren't part of the union.

Explaining to a 5-year old: Logistic Regression

  • These types of questions are designed to see how well you can convey complicated concepts, and how well you actually understand them.
  • Logistic regression can be used for binary classification by placing thresholds on the outputs of probabilities, but by itself, it simply reveals the probability that a given input belongs to a certain class.
  • This is a very basic explanation of logistic regression that is meant to make it easy to understand and accessible for a non-technical audience.
  • Tony Yiu has a great tutorial for engaging with logistic regression and actually using data and interpreting the results from it.
  • If you find yourself in the position of needing to explain logistic regression someone without using statistics, think of the educated Eggdicator.
  • Depending on these probabilities of it belonging to either class, a decision can be made on if it is a good or bad egg.
