Heed These 7 Warning Signs to Avoid a Potentially Toxic Partnership

A bad business partner is like a bad marriage, but with one exception: It’s easier to get a divorce than to get out of a bad partnership.

Years ago when I was raising money for my first venture, a wise investor pulled me aside, and asked me what I knew about my business partner. When I asked him why that was important, he told me that many people go into business with partners they really didn’t know well – and once the business was flourishing, the partner turned out to be a real burden.

Man, was he …read more

The Evolution of 4 Iconic Logo Designs

A strong visual language is the best way to establish brand recognition among your audience, and your logo is the foundation of that visual identity. A well-designed logo complements a brand, oftentimes taking on a life of its own and effectively settling into the cultural consciousness. Not only that, the best logos serve as both a template and a guide as a brand evolves.

Some of the world’s most iconic logos have been refined — though never redesigned — because their design was such an accurate reflection of the brand. Here are four classic logos that have …read more

Big Five Have Changed College Sports Forever

Goodbye Boise State. Goodbye Butler. Cinderellas are no longer welcome in big-time college sports.

The college football season gets started in earnest this weekend. But it will do so with a new exclusive division on top of the heap. Let’s call it the Big Five Division for now.

On August 7th, the Big Five power conferences (Big Ten, SEC, ACC, Big 12 and Pac-12), in effect, pulled away from the rest of the NCAA in order to make their own rules. Undoubtedly, any new rules these conferences implement will be designed to enhance …read more

Protestors in Valladolid, Spain, have launched a “bra protest” in front of their city’s town hall as part of a demonstration demanding the mayor to resign in light of his controversial remarks about rape.

During a recent interview with national radio station Onda Cero, Mayor Francisco Javier León de la Riva, a former gynecologist, cautioned men about women’s sexual assault allegations, The Guardian reports.

Chipotle CEO Details Why His Company Is Better Than Other 'Irrelevant' Fast Food Chains

Most mega fast food chains are being pulled in two directions these days — trying to satisfy those consumers who want quality ingredients and healthier options, while also pushing bottom-dollar value menu items to diners whose primary goal is to eat something fast and cheap. It would seem like one of these would have to win out in the long run, and according to the co-CEO of Chipotle, the cheap and easy route will soon be a thing of the past.

In an interview with The Street, Chipotle co-CEO Monty Moran says the company is taking down …read more

To accomplish Liberation Palestinian Unity Must be Preserved

It was no coincidence that the announcement of the permanent ceasefire agreement was be made by Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas at his Ramallah headquarters.

While Abbas may have been battered in social media and in activists’ circles, it is clear that, in real terms, he emerged as a key player.

Hamas’ enmity towards Egypt and Israel, the two countries neighbouring Gaza, played into Abbas’ hands.

Sending a united delegation to the indirect peace talks headed by a Fateh leader cemented this newfound unity.

It was ironic that the two men who negotiated for …read more

Reagan Appointee 'Unravels FedEx's Business Model' In Court Ruling

In a decision that one judge wrote “substantially unravels FedEx’s business model,” a panel of federal judges ruled Wednesday that FedEx Ground and FedEx Home Delivery drivers are employees of the company, rather than the “independent contractors” that FedEx characterizes them as.

The decision by the panel for the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals determined that FedEx Ground had misclassified 2,300 drivers in California and Oregon as contractors, opening the company up to hundreds of millions of dollars in wage claims. The ruling reversed a decision by a lower court that had stopped the plaintiffs’ lawsuits …read more

Proud Brother Is Interviewed About Throwing Like A Girl, Gets All The Questions Right

Nine-year-old Linden understands how the phrase “Throw like a girl” is used by most people, but he also knows that it’s not accurate.

He was interviewed as part of Always’ super viral “Like A Girl” social experiment, which broke down the idiomatic stereotype of what it means to do something “like a girl” — that is, what it means to do something badly. But in the clip above, when director Lauren Greenfield asks him if all girls throw badly, the corner of his lips quirk upwards.

“No,” he says with a quick smile, “Not my …read more
