Netflix is going deeper into hock — announcing plans to offer $1.5 billion in debt notes — money it needs as it continues to dial up spending on original TV shows and movies.[UPDATE: On Monday evening, Netflix priced the debt offering at $1.9 billion, a substantial increase from the initial plan.]In announcing the planned debt financing Monday, Netflix included the standard boilerplate that it expects to use the net proceeds “for general corporate purposes,” but the company has been clear that it’s plowing capital into content. The financial instrument Netflix is using is to as referred as “junk bonds” in the industry, carrying a higher yield and higher degree of risk than investment-grade bonds.Netflix reported booming first-quarter 2018 results last week, exceeding subscriber-growth estimates both in the U.S. and abroad, to hit 125 million total streaming customers at the end of the period. The company reiterated that it expects content spending to be $7.5 billion to $8 billion for 2018 on a profit/loss basis, in line with its previous estimates. ×Actors Reveal Their Favorite Disney PrincessesSeveral actors, like Daisy Ridley, Awkwafina, Jeff Goldblum and Gina Rodriguez, reveal their favorite Disney princesses.

That included $1.6 billion last fall, $1.4 billion (1.3 billion euros) in new debt financing a year ago, $1 billion in the fall of 2016 and $1.5 billion in February 2015. In addition, last summer Netflix took out a line of credit to borrow up to $750 million.Pictured above: “Stranger Things,” one of Netflix’s most popular originals
Encountering rude behaviour from seniors at work can turn employees impolite in return, spreading rudeness like a virus, a study says.Not just vitiating the atmosphere, rudeness in office has a negative effect on overall performance. “When you experience rudeness, it makes rudeness more noticeable. You will see more rudeness even if it is not there,” said lead researcher Trevor Foulk, doctoral student in management at University of Florida. The team tracked 90 graduate students practicing negotiation with classmates. Also Read – ‘Playing Jojo was emotionally exhausting’Those who rated their initial negotiation partner as rude were more likely to be rated as rude by a subsequent partner, showing that they passed along the first partner’s rudeness.The effect continued even when a week elapsed between the first and second negotiations. “We are generally tolerant of these behaviours but these are actually really harmful. Rudeness has an incredibly powerful negative effect on the workplace,” Foulk said.Rudeness directed at others can also prime our brains to detect discourtesy. Foulk and his co-authors tested how quickly 47 undergraduate students could identify which words in a list were real and which were nonsense words. Before the exercise began, participants observed one of two staged interactions between an apologetic late-arriving participant and the study leader.

Just like those who experience rudeness in the first place, people who witness it were more likely to be rude to others. Foulk hopes the study will encourage employers to take incivility more seriously.
