People in loose states are happier. I live in a sad Yellow limbo. What color are you?
And just because this is from Mother Jones, doesn't mean loose is the same as a loosy. This is real research published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences by psychologists Jesse R. Harrington and Michele J. Gelfand of the University of Maryland.
1 in 7 truckloads of veggies would rot... Until Sprouts. It's not just another Whole Foods.
Sprouts’ business is based around aggressively-advertised low prices for produce - 20% to 30% below conventional competitors. Those low prices mean high sales volume, which means, faster turnover, which means less waste, which means lower costs, which means the company makes money despite the lower prices.
'Sprouts has essentially flipped the conventional supermarket model, which promotes center-of-the-store grocery products to drive traffic and builds a basket with higher-margin perishables like produce,' wrote Credit Suisse analysts, in a note that referred to the 'disruptive' potential of the chain and called it 'one of the most compelling growth stories in retail.'
The best opportunities are frequently the ones with the most question marks. - Reid Hoffman
Great presentation here for anyone, especially graduating students, that feel anxiety about their work future. Because we have to manage that anxiety - - the uncertainty will never leave us in this strange new accelerating economy.
Something you have, something you know, and something you are. That's the mantra of multi-factor authentication.
Because who are we really if there is no proof?
It's likely that our phones become a major part of that proof. But they are not perfect authentication devices yet.
"In today’s world still, if you are using a phone with a virtual keyboard, you're forced to type this dreadful, unreadable tiny password on the keyboard, and by the way, you can’t actually read what you just typed. That’s a pretty miserable user experience, which we alluded to earlier."
"But also, it’s a very ugly. It’s a mainframe-centric architecture. The notion that the authentication credentials are shared secrets that you know and that are stored on some central server is a very, very 1960s approach to the world. My own belief is that, in fact, we have to move towards a much more device-centric authentication model, where the remote server actually doesn't know your authentication credentials. Again, that comes back to both architecture and standards."
