In this article DKNGVIDEO1:4701:47DraftKings shares plunge following Hidenburg's short callSquawk BoxShares of sports-betting firm DraftKings fell Tuesday after Hindenburg Research announced it had taken a short position against the stock.

This story is part of the Behind the Desk series, where CNBC Make It gets personal with successful business executives to find out everything from how they got to where they are to what makes them get out of bed in the morning to their daily routines. Sarah Kate Ellis was named President and CEO of GLAAD, the world's largest LGBTQ media advocacy organization, in early 2014 after a successful career as a media executive at top magazine brands such as Real Simple, InStyle and Vogue.

I've been testing them for about a week and, in some ways, they're better than Apple's regular $159 AirPods. They're more comfortable. They're also the first set of headphones from Apple that quickly pair with iPhones and Android devices. Still, you'll miss out on important options that AirPods offer if you own multiple Apple devices. Apple owns Beats, so Apple wins whether you buy AirPods or these new earbuds. But, by making it easier than AirPods to pair with Android devices, it now has buds that will appeal more to people who don't even own iPhones. It's smart. Here's what you need to know. What's goodBeats Studio BudsTodd Haselton | CNBCThe Beats Studio Buds look better than AirPods. They don't have the long stem that hangs down below your ear.
