A 'Wearable' That Charges Your Phone

A solution to this problem? External chargers. Nowadays they come in all shapes and sizes, coming in handy when you are on the go and don’t have time to sit down and charge. However, none on the market allow you to actually wear your charger…until now. QDesigns,a startup co-founded by James Kernan and Alessandro Libani, is looking to make charging …read more

The Extraordinary Makers Of India's Most Expensive Tea

A 155-year-old tea estate in India’s Darjeeling district recently sold the most expensive tea ever made in the country.

Buyers in Japan, the U.S. and the U.K. bought the specialty tea, named Silver Tips Imperial, for $1,850 per kilo from the Makaibari Tea Estate. The Japanese buyer told the Times of India that the tea will be served for $45 a pot at the Ritz Carlton Tokyo Roppongi Hotel.

Around 500 women picked the tea in June on the eve of the summer solstice between 12:01 a.m. and 3 a.m., Makaibari chairman Rajah …read more

These Photos Of The World's Most Untouched Places Will Take Your Breath Away

Over the course of eight years, veteran photojournalist Sebastião Salgado — traveling by plane, on foot, by canoe and even balloon — took more than 30 trips to some of the most remote and untouched corners of the globe. That included visiting the penguins of the Antarctic, gaping at the stunning ravines of the Grand Canyon and spending time with the isolated Zo’é tribe who live deep in the Amazon jungle. In each place or community in which he found himself, Salgado pulled out his camera and documented the experience.

His purpose? To show the world through …read more

Follow the Lead of Your Staff

There are clearly different management styles. Whether in the presidency of the United States or a small college, different people use different approaches.

Paradoxically, leaders need to learn when to follow. Regardless of the strength of the head of any organization, s/he should follow the lead of staff whenever possible.

Far too often, I made the mistake of getting involved in matters when members of my staff told me I should not do so. Maybe I was trying to demonstrate my accessibility; maybe I just thought, especially in disciplinary matters, fairness required my involvement. In either case, I …read more

How Uber Has Thrown Traditional Taxi Services Under the Bus

Want to start a fight?

It wasn’t so easy to pick a fight with a stranger in the movie Fight Club. But in the real world, all you need to do is tell a limo operator or yellow cab driver that you’re a big fan of Uber, the car service system’s contribution to “the sharing economy.” And, in this case, “sharing” doesn’t necessarily mean “sharing the love.”

With a valuation of “only” $18B, Uber pits happy-as-can-be customers against taxi operators, who view the service as an end-run against regulations and — more existentially–a plot to put …read more

Officiating Machines (or Back to Humans)

Thirty years ago, the rock band Queen released a song called ‘Machines’ (or ‘Back to Humans’). The lyrics describe about how the technological age has begun to squeeze the humanity out of music and, furthermore, gradually desensitized people from the genuine feelings and emotions contained with the arts. It’s all mechanical.

Well, there has been a similar evolution/devolution process with hockey officiating. In this age of cookie-cutter rules and faceless TV watchers with ever-increasing decision-making powers via video reviews, we are in danger of only having “robot” referees with no feel for the game and no comfort in …read more

Major Donations To Ebola Efforts Came Only After Disease Spiraled Out Of Control

In as early as March, the Ebola crisis was deemed an “unprecedented epidemic.” But major donors didn’t get the memo until the disease had already spun out of control.

Despite early warnings from such reputable organizations as Doctors Without Borders, government groups and major donors didn’t really start emptying their wallets to help stop the worst Ebola outbreak in history until months later. As of Monday, documented pledges or donations totaled $326.7 million, according to data from the Financial Tracking Service, which is managed by the United Nations Office for the Coordination …read more
