On March 10, 2023, the California regulator closed Silicon Valley Bank (owned by SVB Financial Group, is the 16th largest bank in the United States by assets) and transferred it to the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC).

Unusual for business
An artist must be hungry. A beautiful phrase that for some reason justifies the low assessment of the work of creative people. It’s one thing to feel like a genius, but at the same time forced to earn a living doing what you don’t like, and another thing is to receive money along with recognition, which is enough for a quiet life filled with creativity.
