All The Things The Row's New $1500 Nylon Bag Reminds Us Of

Mary-Kate and Ashley’s label The Row isn’t exactly known for being budget friendly (remember that famous $35,000 backpack?) But now, the fashion moguls have outdone themselves by creating a bag made out of nylon that retails for $1,550. Yes, you read that right. For the price of approximately 150 manicures you can have one of your very own The Row nylon bags. Here it is:

But wait, maybe we’re being too hard on the bag. After all, nylon is an extremely useful material that has a broad range of uses, for things like:<br …read more

New York State: The New Oklahoma?

When Governor Mary Fallin of Oklahoma signed a law this week banning cities in her state from enacting higher local minimum wages, there was some deserved head-scratching and collective groaning. At a time when cities and states are working to address economic inequality and fight poverty by passing minimum wage increases, why would a state hamstring its cities from setting a higher minimum wage?

It’s a question that workers and advocates are asking in New York as well.

Because when it comes to the ability of localities to set a higher minimum wage, New York — a …read more

Feds May Be Looking To Bail On Net Neutrality: WSJ

Net neutrality is not dead. But it may be about to take a big blow to the head.

The Wall Street Journal has a foreboding scoop on what the new net neutrality rules the Federal Communications Commission is drafting will look like, and they will not have Internet activists thrilled.

According to sources who spoke with the newspaper, the FCC is working on a plan to restructure the rules that govern online traffic by granting Internet service providers the ability to give some websites “preferential treatment” for faster traffic — all for a price.

5 Fun Facts About New York's Tavern On The Green

NEW YORK (AP) — New York City’s Tavern on the Green, closed since the previous operators lost their lease and declared bankruptcy in 2009, reopens Thursday under new management. Here are five things to know about the once-grand restaurant in Central Park:

1. The Victorian Gothic structure was originally built in 1870 as a sheepfold for the flock that grazed in the Sheep Meadow. It became a restaurant in 1934 during a renovation undertaken by parks commissioner Robert Moses. 2. Hollywood scion Warner LeRoy took over the restaurant’s lease in 1974 and turned it into a sprawling banquet hall …read more

All Reputation Management Tools Are Not Created Equal

An over-reliance on a familiar tool is a concept made famous by American psychologist Abraham Maslow who in 1966 said: “I suppose it is tempting, if the only tool you have is a hammer, to treat everything as if it were a nail.”

Recently, I worked on two interesting yet vastly different online reputation problems, and the experiences affirmed to me that even though online reputation management issues are diverse, “hammers” are very popular.

The first involved a company that was fighting a disparaging and defamatory online forum posting. A disgruntled customer wrote a negative review on …read more

Five Keys To BRAVE Innovation

In most industries, the lowest cost player makes money selling large quantities of product or service at a low price with great discipline. The differentiated player makes money selling smaller quantities of product or service at a relatively high price fueled by value-creating innovation. Those in the middle lose.

This note provides a look at the five keys to BRAVE Innovation, a cross between the ideas in Peter Skarzynski and David Crosswhite’s The Innovator’s Field Guide, with my own BRAVE leadership framework.

Environmental Groups Ask U.S. Trade Rep To Drop Complaint Over India's Solar Policy

WASHINGTON — A group of environmental organizations is calling on the Office of the U.S. Trade Representative to drop a complaint over India’s solar power policy. The groups called the complaint “misguided” in a letter to U.S. Trade Representative Michael Froman on Wednesday.

“We are writing to express our grave concerns that the United States plans to increase uncertainty in the Indian solar market by asking the World Trade Organization (WTO) to establish a panel to evaluate whether India’s national solar program violates international trade rules,” wrote the 15 groups, which includes the Sierra Club and Greenpeace. “We …read more

The Larger Your Penis, The More Likely Your Wife Will Cheat Says New Study

Men often view having a large member as a symbol of strength and sexual prowess. But it turns out, when it comes to keeping a woman satisfied, bigger may not be better.

Contrary to popular belief, a new study out of Kenya found that husbands with larger penises were more likely to be cheated on by their wives (shocking, we know).

For the study — published this month in PLOSOne — researchers interviewed 545 married couples in Kenya in order to better understand their relationship habits and, more specifically, to identify …read more
