Scott Hughes is an American entrepreneur and philanthropist who has recently been in the news because of the huge success of his online book reading platform called, “OnlineBookClub”. Book clubs are basically common public spaces where people having similar subject interests gather together and converse about books, novels, articles, or literature. The main reason behind these book clubs has always been about getting insights regarding the different opinions or interpretations other people might have. This kind of activity sets up positive discourse which always leads to healthy community interactions. For the current generation, book clubs have become less common due to their reliance on digital platforms to access the required information. To bridge the gap between generations on having open discussions of different kinds of literature, Scott Hughes created OnlineBookClub. The platform is still considered ahead of its time even 15 years after its launch back in 2006 when there were not community websites for book readers and ebook libraries like Amazon Kindle. In the years that followed, OnlineBookClub consistently grew in size and scope and now has almost2.5 million users.

- Encourage free speech. The heart of any book club is free speech. Never hesitate to state your opinions and also have the patience to listen to and open up to other ideas too. Scott makes sure his platform allows people to have a free opinion by maintaining the user interface of the website in the form of forums where anyone can join the discussion and start a new one too.

Ford’s market cap tops $100 billion for the very first time
Ford Motor’s market value topped $100 billion for the first time ever as the automaker’s stock hit a new 52-week high Thursday.
The organization’s shares hopped Thursday by as much as 5.7% to $25.87, hitting another 20 or more year high, prior to shutting at $25.02 a share, up 2.3%. Its fairly estimated worth dropped to $99.99 billion.
The additions have been energized by Ford’s plans to build production of electric vehicles, including the Mustang Mach-E crossover and an upcoming electric version of its bestselling F-150 pickup that is expected out this spring. The efforts are part for a Ford+ turnaround plan led by CEO Jim Farley, who assumed control over the helm in October 2020.
Ford’s presently worth more than crosstown adversary General Motors, at about $90 billion, as well as electric vehicle start-up Rivian Automotive, at $72 billion, which has failed to support acquires following a blockbuster IPO in November. Ford proceeds to altogether trail Tesla, which has a market cap of more than $1 trillion.
The automaker is evaluated overweight with a value focus of $21.83 an offer, as indicated by a normal of 22 examiners arranged by FactSet. Be that as it may, not all Wall Street examiners haven’t totally gotten tied up with Ford’s turnaround.
“The stock market’s attraction to the Ford EV story continues to take us by surprise,” Morgan Stanley analyst Adam Jonas told investors in a Thursday note called “Ford Market Cap Crosses $100bn: What’s In the Price?”
Morgan Stanley’s value focus for Ford is $12 an offer. Its bull case for the stock is $25 an offer, as indicated by Jonas.
“Ford’s share price movement is impressive and management deserve credit for changing the strategic narrative, triggering a re-rating,” Jonas said. “However, at this juncture, we believe the risks facing Ford and the sector are rising faster than the opportunity.”
Jonas refered to worries including the auto industry’s historically cyclical nature returning, challenges in scaling EV production and more competitive and engaging EVs entering the market against Ford.
