The Paradox of American Restaurants
Restaurants have grown from 25 percent of food spending in the 1950s to more than half, today.
Solving this isn’t rocket science; it’s common sense. Don’t design buildings that function only as pristine objects with no relationship to their surroundings
Cognitive-load theory posits that brains have only so much bandwidth, so to best take in information, you must also limit it.
Conducting a 10/10/10 analysis doesn’t presuppose that the long-term perspective is the right one. It simply ensures that short-term emotion isn’t the only voice at the table.
One of the costs of a weak or negative culture is voluntary attrition, or employees choosing leave. By investing in culture early on, one would expect that voluntary attrition would be lower, and our research corroborates that.
As Jim Gaffigan says, the hardest thing to discipline yourself around is that giant pan of bacon
And that’s how John Mayer ended up dancing with pandas
Themes and trends are traps for entrepreneurs and investors
For Trump, it was never supposed to be this hard. As a real estate mogul on the rise, he wrote “The Art of the Deal,” and as a political candidate, he boasted that nobody could make deals as beautifully as he could.
Too many entrepreneurs think if their first business idea is a failure, they aren’t cut out for it. Too many artists assume that if their early work doesn’t get praised, they don’t have the skill required.
Their understanding gave me the confidence to pursue my path at a pace that felt right for me—an incredibly freeing and motivating gift. Based on the MPI research, 2 in 3 multicultural millennials believe that they will be more successful than their parents. This is not borne of arrogance, but rather, is an effect of the baton having been passed—believing in the inevitability of our success is the first essential step in paying homage to the dreams our parents were holding onto when they first stepped foot on American soil.
those who habitually push their bodies tend to confront daily stressors with a stoic demeanor
Titles Are Not Your Job
There’s simply no real substitute for physical presence
In a brief appearance on Saturday, the president assured the nation that his immigrant ban was “working out very nicely — you see it in the airports.” But the pictures and videos flooding across our social streams put the lie to Mr. Trump’s breezy pronouncements. Things at the airports weren’t working out very nicely; you could see it right there on Instagram.

And I think that’s a smart move for a small-phone lover. In my tests, the iPhone SE performed like a champ. For one thing, it’s wicked fast. It shouldn’t be any faster than the larger 6s, because its main and graphics processors are the same. But it feels faster to me, flying through scrolls and swipes. This may just be because I haven’t used a 4-inch phone for awhile, or perhaps because the chips are having to move fewer pixels on the smaller screen.
Any startup should include Facebook in its competitive analysis. How are people using it? Does it work?
So good. And such a great user tutorial
Over the past decade, we at Bain & Company have been studying the deep roots of the most adaptable and sustainably successful companies. We started with the observation that profitable growth is becoming more challenging, and that only one in 10 companies achieve it over a decade. We confirmed this observation by developing a database of all public companies in the global stock markets and tracking their performance over 25 years. We found that the companies most successful at maintaining profitable growth over the long term were disproportionately companies where the founder was still running the business (such as Oracle, Haier, or LBrands), was still involved on the Board of Directors (like Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts), or, most importantly, where the focus and principles of how to operate that the founder had originally put in place still endured (as at IKEA or at Enterprise Rent-A-Car).
In a nutshell, Bluetooth is a wireless communication specification operating on the unlicensed 2.4GHz band. It could be considered a short-range sibling of Wi-Fi. Where Wi-Fi enables wireless local area networks (WLANs) and ties together devices around some venue, Bluetooth enables wireless personal area networks (PANs) to enable communication in a 10-meter range (for Class 2 and Class 3 Bluetooth devices) and more than 100-meter range for Class 1 devices, mostly used for industrial applications. Even the low-power Class 2 and Class 3 devices are capable of greater than 10-meter range with the new networking and modulation schemes introduced by the Bluetooth standard in March 2016.
