Remote workers are often happier, more loyal, and more productive than their office-bound counterparts.Much has been said and written about the benefits of hiring remote employees.Two identical brick-and-mortar stores just a few miles apart can perform very differently solely because of location.In contrast, one of an online store’s greatest strengths is its lack of location.Not having a physical location helps a small or mid-sized online retailer compete with massive retail chains.Focus on what your remote workers are accomplishing rather than worrying about where they are.

Google Assistant is almost in every notable Google product, from the Google Home, Android phones, Android Wear smartwatches, and at least one Android TV.The one remaining holdout is, unsurprisingly, Chrome OS, Google’s desktop-like platform.Worry not, Chrome OS fans, you too will soon get your well-deserved AI assistant.And, no, it won’t be coming via a still in beta Google Play integration but a feature in its own right, displacing the less used and even unknown “OK Google” hotword.After all, Google Assistant has already displaced “OK, Google” in smartphones and smartwatches anyway.So why not on Chromebooks?

The giant crack that's been racing across Antarctica Larsen C ice shelf finally met its breaking point between July 10 and 12.The result was an iceberg the size of Delaware and weighing a trillion metric tons.But that's not the end of the story.In fact, it could be the beginning of a more important, more dangerous story.The iceberg that broke off — dubbed A68 — was just one piece of the much larger Larsen C ice shelf.Now, scientists want to know how stable is the ice shelf that has been left intact, connected to the Antarctic continent.

The National Radio Quiet Zone (NRQZ) is a 13,000–square-mile area in West Virginia, Virginia, and part of Maryland that heavily restricts radio transmissions and other electromagnetic radiation on the same spectrum.In recent years, however, the NRQZ has been a safe haven for sufferers of electromagnetic hypersensitivity (EHS), which is not currently recognised as a medical diagnosis according to the World Health Organization.So far, results of EHF studies have been inconsistent.Double-blind experiments (where neither the subject nor the researcher know if the subject is being exposed to real or sham electromagnetic fields) showed no evidence of EHF of symptoms being caused by electromagnetic fields.Doctor and medical researcher working on COSMOS (an international study investigating whether long term mobile phone and RF-EMF technologies cause adverse health outcomes), Department of Epidemiology and Biostatistics (a unit that specialises in environmental EMF research) at Imperial College LondonIn the past decade, the use of mobile phones and other wireless technologies has become widespread in our everyday lives, not only in our homes but also at workplaces and schools.

A couple of weeks ago it looked like the legal battles were going to calm down a bit, but it has gone completely the opposite direction.Intel is the latest character in the on-going saga, as it accuses the chipmaker of trying to use the courts to quash competition in the market.After humbly calling itself ‘Qualcomm’s only remaining competitor’, it states the chipmaker is using its royalty system to tie in customers and remove any competition in the market.Qualcomm has continued to stand by the claim no modern handset, including the iPhone, would have been possible without its base technologies and is therefore entitled to the royalties.Intel is also accusing the chipmaker of lowering prices for Apple in exchange for exclusivity.“This twisted use of the Commission’s process is just the latest in a long line of anticompetitive strategies that Qualcomm has used to quash incipient and potential competitors and avoid competition on the merits.

(Reuters) — Music streaming company Spotify is close to agreeing a new licensing pact with Warner Music Inc, the last big music royalty deal it needs before pushing ahead with a U.S. stock market listing, four sources familiar with the situation said.The parties are positive a deal could be signed by September as major issues such as granting loss-making Spotify a more favorable revenue split in return for making some new albums accessible only to its paying subscribers for a defined period have already been agreed, the sources said.However, the precise revenue split and the size of a potential guaranteed upfront payment to the label, home to artists including Ed Sheeran and Muse, have yet to be agreed, said two of the sources.“The negotiations are at a crossroads,” said one of the sources, asking not to be named because the talks are private, adding discussions were taking place daily.“There are still a number of key points that remain to be agreed.If not, any deal would remain at bay.”

If a chef offered you a dish that included “paralyzing toxins” that “could suffocate you,” you probably wouldn’t eat it.and BBDO New York seeks to raise awareness of food allergies—and money to research possible cures—by illustrating the harsh reality that, for people suffering from food allergies, one bite of the wrong food can be deadly.To that end, the agency teamed up with celebrity chef Ming Tsai to create a food truck that offered non-allergic eaters a taste of the allergic experience—by serving up poisonous dishes.In a PSA set to air in movie theaters starting July 28, Tsai mans the gourmet vehicle, titled “Khil Mi,” while offering passersby dishes that include ingredients like toxic yew berries, and other components that might cause shortness of breath or heart failure.The truck was set up in New York City, in what looks like a small public area across from Madison Square Park (a bustling commercial area where food vendors often hawk their wares).As an attention-grabbing stunt, it’s effective, even if the exchanges themselves are staged (as such productions usually are, to some degree).

The Lost Arcade is part documentary and part eulogy for the iconic New York video game arcade Chinatown Fair in all its messy beloved neon glory.And it was personal — then-owner Sam Palmer was reluctant to sell and said that the arcade was where he belonged.Even Next Level, the spiritual successor to the original Chinatown Fair, has changed with the times and now incorporates live-streaming events.He describes his business model as a cross between Chuck E. Cheese’s (a chain of family entertainment centers) and Dave & Busters (a more grownup flavor of entertainment, with games, food, and alcohol).When movies came out on video tape, people stopped going to the theaters.Mom-‘n’-pop operations suffered, and the ones that survived upped their game with nicer amenities like plush chairs and 3D screens.

At the top of Thursday’s Chicago Sun-Times front page, the nameplate reads, per usual: ‘$1 CITY/BURBS $2 ELSEWHERE.’ What’s less usual is that the new ownership deal for the paper and alt-weekly the Chicago Reader, also noted on the July 13 front page, was done for the ‘CITY/BURBS’ amount.It’s a startling detail about a deal consummated in the third largest media market in the U.S. by a former city alderman, Edwin Eisendrath, in partnership with the Chicago Federation of Labor.One you have to scroll pretty far down in the Sun-Times report by Sam Charles about this news to get to:The new owners wouldn’t discuss the terms of the acquisition Thursday, but a source involved in the transaction said the purchase price of Sun-Times parent Wrapports LLC totaled only $1, the cost of a single copy of the paper.ST Acquisition Holdings LLC won over the U.S. Department of Justice’s Antitrust Division — which is responsible for investigating newspaper mergers and oversaw the sale — by securing more than $11.2 million in operating funds to bankroll the company for an undisclosed period.While the purchase price for Wrapports LLC is just a dollar, the required additional funding that had to be secured makes the transaction ultimately worth $11,200,001.

That’s a terrible way to get the most from your investment – not to mention that approach often results in a poor experience for your prospects and customers.Think about the last time you went to a website looking for answers, and instead of stumbling upon something current and helpful, you found ROT – redundant, out-of-date, and trivial content.Did you poke around to find better info or did you go someplace else?If you come from the tech world, think about how the product is managed over the course of its life.Let’s dig in to the results to see what is going on – and, more importantly, let’s pinpoint opportunities for marketers to truly manage their content as a business asset.Systems also help eliminate the intensive time needed to recraft every piece of content by hand.
