We re never going to actually see this show, are we?First up, Discovery has cast James Frain Gotham as Sarek, Spock s Vulcan father.This makes a bit of sense, since we ve been hearing for a long time that Amanda Grayson, Spock s human mother, was on the writers wish list.Of course, that was back when Bryan Fuller was still the showrunner and the quote It would be fun in some iteration of this show to incorporate her and her storyline.She s not a central part of the show but we love that character came from him.It looks like at least that part of his design is still happening.

Earlier this month, we saw a bunch of clever new baby-related gadgets make their debut at the Consumer Electronics Show.While some might prove useful—I would have killed for a breast pump like Willow—others are more likely to drain parents wallets without providing anything of real value.The more dubious gadgets include the Bloomlife contraction monitor, the Ava fertility tracking bracelet, and a whole class of products already on the market that promise to alert you if your sleeping baby stops breathing.It turns out there s a reason for that.Some Devices Are Sold to Consumers Because They ve Been Rejected by Medical ProfessionalsIf a new health wearable storms on the market as the first in its category, no one could blame you for assuming it s the first to do what it promises to do.

The idea of drawing on paper and having it appear on my phone or iPad still seems like magic to me.It s not new, and Wacom certainly isn t the only product that offers it, but my time with the Bamboo Slate showed it s really the closest thing to an actual notepad and a real elegant solution to converting notes for digital storage.A legal pad and a digital camera paired with your favorite note-taking app can certainly do the job — it s what I d been using for years.With the Slate, however, I didn t have to worry about writing in a dark room and trying to snag a photo afterward or the panic that ensues after realizing the image I archived was blurry and unreadable.Once ready, you ll just turn the Slate on and begin taking notes as usual.With an InkSpace subscription, you can even use the built-in optical character recognition OCR features to translate your handwriting into searchable text.

When you buy and hold a mutual fund in your retirement account, you pay an expense ratio, which is basically a fee to the firm that manages the fund.Typically, expense ratios range from about 0.15% to well over 1%, which doesn t seem like a huge difference.However, expense ratios add up over time and this calculator shows you just how much.Dinkytown s Investment Fees calculator lets you compare expense ratios for three different funds at a time.You enter your balance, regular savings, and fees, and you can see how your balance grows over time, depending on the fee.For example, the chart above shows you what a $100,000 investment looks like over the years with a 0.10% expense ratio, a 0.20% ratio, and a 1.5% ratio.

Of all of my social media channels, Twitter has been the best one for building relationships.Up until recently, I had never unfollowed anyone who followed me.For my one conference trip that year, I chose to go to Web 2.0 Expo at the Moscone Center in San Francisco.However, four days before we were to finalize the deal, my business partners and I got a knock on the door from the FBI stating that the principal of the investment firm was under arrest for a FINRA violation.I created a new ad agency, Advangel Interactive, and I began to focus on growing relationships outside of Kansas City on this new fandangled thing called the Twitters.In one of its worst Twitter management decisions of all time, the company essentially killed the Twitter developer community.

When my company decided to go full time, we made a big decision right off the bat: As designers, we wanted to focus our energy on making things.So, we put funding rounds and sales strategies aside for the time being and got started.We quickly learned that people are attracted to companies that lead with design.A study by DMI shows that such companies outperform the stock market by 228 percent.Today, as a team of 30 people, we've seen this mentality help us focus on what really matters: the work, the experiences people have and what we can do to create sustainable growth year after year.In a service business like ours, people notice when we re forgiving on scope, when we overdeliver or when we show flexibility in a way they wouldn t expect.
