I dag arbetar Arianna Huffington inte längre med nättidningen Huffington post utan satsar helhjärtat på hälsostartupen Thrive Global.Hon anser att vi behöver införa en “tredje parameter” i vårt liv som inte fokuserar på pengar och makt utan på inre välbefinnande och återhämtning.I en artikel publicerad i Harvard Business Review avslöjar hon sitt trick för att medarbetarna ska lyckas släppa jobbet totalt under semestern.Hon ser helt enkelt till att auto-radera deras mejlkorgar med hjälp av verktyget “Thrive away”.“Det hela är väldigt enkelt.När du är på semester får folk ett mejl som säger vilket datum du kommer tillbaka.

The smartest thing Debra Bednar-Clark has done for her career wasn't an internship, or a meeting, or an elevator pitch.Before starting her own company, career and leadership coaching firm DB+co, Bednar-Clark was the global head of strategy and growth at Facebook, and spent time as Microsoft's director of US market strategy and engagement."When I look back," she told Business Insider, "I think for a lot of my career I was in a tug of war between what I was supposed to do and who I actually am or aspire to be.Early in my career I was one of few female coders, and I felt compelled to really shut down the different sides of myself to fit in and earn the respect of my male colleagues.But what I realized is that when we're separating our personal self from our professional self, we're often leaving the best parts of who we are at the door when we walk into the office every day."Plus, she continued, "this fragmentation is self-limiting because you're ultimately just showing a one-dimensional version of yourself rather than all of the things that make you unique.

We now exist an interesting interstitial moment, one defined by big corporations producing much of the innovation and some of the world’s richest companies – Apple, Amazon, Uber, Facebook – trying to solve big hairy problems.These are the problems that startups would have once solved but because they are so expensive – I’m talking about commercial VR, self-driving trucks, gene editing, and the like – there are no startups capitalized to tackle them.First, it means the frothy startup mania that defined this past decade – and was largely chronicled on this site – is going to slow for a while.Small companies could pull off upsets – Compaq and Microsoft leading the charge – but most of the heavy lifting was done by IBM, TI, and the other massive corporations.It also means that big companies will be tackling big problems with big money and it’s time for those selfsame companies to start doing these things in places outside of SF, London, and New York.Their continued revival is critical to the country’s ability to innovate and compete, create jobs and raise incomes and living standards.

Was it an early decision or a more recent event?I started my career in the financial services industry—with ten years in IT at Merrill Lynch.I decided to make marketing my main focus as the industry evolved to be more data and ROI driven.I love the ‘science' behind marketing—where decisions can be developed or changed based on data.Have you always been a marketer, or did you train for a different role prior to that (and if so, what?)?I've spent my career helping companies better align their technologies with customer needs and experiences.

You need more than a strict diet and a workout regimen to be this thin.Acer has worked its magic on the Aspire S24 all-in-one, sending it off to fat camp and not coming to collect until it achieved a barely-there 5.97mm side profile.A 90% screen to body ratio means your eyes will be instantly drawn to one of the most beautiful desktops we've ever seen.As much as you would like to just stare at it, though, it's still a desktop - not a piece of modern art.That means it needs to perform as brilliantly as it looks, which is where the 8th-gen Intel Core processor, 256 GB SSD and a 2TB HDD step up to the plate.We're still waiting on price, but we're betting you'll need a wedge of notes thicker than the machine itself.

Swarms of fire ants now just the second-nastiest thing floating around HoustonWith much of Houston, Texas, still under water from flooding caused by Hurricane Harvey, scammers are running robocall operations aimed at residents of the storm-ravaged area.US trade watchdog the FTC on Thursday issued an alert after receiving reports of a "flood insurance" scam targeting those in and around the American city."One thing we've learned at the Federal Trade Commission is that scams often follow the news – especially when there's a natural disaster, like Hurricane Harvey, in the headlines," the warning said.The robocalls claim that the target's flood insurance premiums are "past due," and in order to have any coverage for damages caused by Hurricane Harvey they need to make an immediate payment.The scam is a blatant attempt to capitalize on the panic of people in the area who have already lost much if not all of their possessions – and in some cases, pets and family members – to the flooding in parts of Texas and Louisiana.

How well do you know the various designs for the Batmobile or the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle Party Wagon?When you're tasked with saving the world from both Nazis and alien invaders, you need the kind of motorcycle that will get you to your destination in one piece.In the infographic from Netent Stalker, a site that tracks online casinos and gaming, you can see a selection of Captain America's various motorcycles from 1979 to 2014 from the comics and movies.Batman depends on his trusty Batmobile to get him (and sometimes Robin) out of tough scrapes.The infographic offers a look at some of the many variations of the Batmobile, including the 1941 comics version all the way to the latest high-tech car as seen in the 2016 film "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice."Mister Fantastic (Reed Richards), Invisible Girl/Invisible Woman (Susan Storm), The Human Torch (Johnny Storm) and The Thing (Ben Grimm) may not agree on much, but the Fantastic Four all have to commute in the same superhero vehicle called the Fantasticar.

Good things happen to those who wait I guess, so earlier today a first leak right from Weibo’s servers gave us a first look at the back side of the rumored Xiaomi Mi MIX 2 – at least according to the leakster.Obviously this hasn’t been confirmed so be careful while you read the following lines, OK?The leaked image comes – presumably- right from the supply chain and shows the back side of the upcoming Mi MIX 2 model, in white glossy color.We can see that it’s glossy so it could be ceramic coating on top of the back shell but if you take a good look at the bottom you will see 2 holes for screws and… there are no screws on ceramic parts.Perhaps then the device is made out of metal?What we do know however is that it has 2 camera lens holes (so it comes with a dual camera setup), another LED flash hole and a USB Type-C port at the bottom.

Snap's lead initial public offering underwriter, Morgan Stanley, has gotten even more bearish on the stock.In a note to clients on Wednesday, the bank maintained its neutral rating of the company, but lowered its price target from $16 to $14."We believe Snap's core ad product is still lacking the performance (low click-through rates), measurability, and advertising return on investment to inflect ad dollar growth," Brian Nowak, an analyst at Morgan Stanley, wrote.Recently, the company has been focused on improving its advertising prowess.Snap released a new ad platform that makes it easier to buy and track ads and has added new locations for these ads like its new "Snap Maps" feature.While the company seems to be making the right moves, it isn't moving fast enough to meaningfully increase advertising revenue in the short term.

Dashcams normally point straight out your windscreen, keeping an eye out for bad drivers, phone-obsessed pedestrians or alien invasions.But the thing about driving is that stuff goes on all around you, not just straight ahead.Enter the Waylens Secure360, which records what’s going on inside the car as well.When you’ve parked up it’ll also function as a security camera for your motor, with either Wi-Fi (US$250) or 4G (US$350) onboard to send alerts to your phone if it spots something suspicious.Back it on Kickstarter now for a big discount (and before the aliens arrive).
