From international tourism to federal employment prospects, every new president alters the fabric of life in the nation's capital. But for local restaurateurs such as Ashok Bajaj, a new White House administration is just another president waiting to be fed. "It takes a little while for the administration to find a restaurant," Bajaj, the owner of several Washington establishments, told VOA's Russian Service. "For the first month or so they are trying to find out what is going on in the White House, and then they are trying to understand what's around, what are best places to eat, best places to drink. With every new administration, we go through that transitional period, too. We lose our old friends and get new ones." Located just a stone's throw from the West Wing, Bajaj's aptly namedOval Roomregularly hosted staffers from the Obama White House.

Snap - owner of popular messaging app Snapchat - is going public on Thursday. And it expects anyone buying up to a quarter of its shares to agree not to sell them for a year. Applying lock-ups helps companies moderate stock volatility. A year-long lock-up period is atypically long, potentially signifying strong demand for the IPO, says Lauren Hirsch who covers the story for Reuters. "There is at least one investor who, we're hearing from our sources, have asked to buy a really big chunk in the Snapchat IPO, and they kind of give assurance that they are really serious and committed to the company," Hirsch told Reuters. "They said, 'Not only do we want to buy a large chunk, but we promise that we'll hold it for a year.' So, that's really good news for Snapchat because they essentially have at least one very interested party, and a very interested party who will provide the stock with some stability when risk in any IPO is a turnover in volatility.

He added: "It’s clear this video is a reflection of me - and the criticism we’ve received is a stark reminder that I must fundamentally change as a leader and grow up. This is the first time I’ve been willing to admit that I need leadership help and I intend to get it.” The video is the latest in a series of challenges and embarrassments for the taxi service.
