In a show of sensitivity carefully plotted nine month ago, the $2.2 billion Seattle-based sporting goods co-op is officially opting out of the shopping madness the day after Thanksgiving this year.In a touching email dispatched to its 5.5 million co-op members yesterday, the company pledged to keep its doors closed on Nov. 27, the day when all hell breaks loose at malls across America, sometimes fatally.That’s right: All 143 of REI’s retail locations, along with its headquarters and distribution centers, will not be open for business.The same goes for Thanksgiving Day, too.Gee willikers, Charlie Brown would be proud.Instead, they’ll shake a leg in the Great Outdoors to “reconnect with family and friends…” (We’re sure none of them will Netflix and chill, lazily riding out the tryptophan crash, like we can’t wait to do.)
If you want to get to grips with the real risks of online privacy you need to understand just what happens to your data in the architecture of the internetYou press the shutter icon on your phone and capture a photo of your baby daughter.With a couple of swipes, you attach it to an email in your Gmail app and fire it off to your mother-in-law.As personal data goes, it doesn’t get much more innocuous.But the truth is that spraying around any private information is risky.You might think that’s overblown.

In one hand they held traditional glasses of bubbly, but in the other were sheets of paper they had filled with their personal data.They wanted to know what would happen in a world where instead of vetting potential dates by their artfully posed selfies or carefully crafted dating-site profiles, we looked at data gathered by their computers and phones.As use of data-gathering devices increases, it s a world that s just round the corner.Elsden and his colleagues want to explore other ways we can use data that gets collected as we go about our modern lives.Can we give people more control over it, make it more ambiguous or playful?It asked for a host of specific numbers: shoe size, the farthest distance they had travelled from home, the earliest and latest times of day they had sent an email in the past month, their heart rate as they filled out the form.
Mujjo s stab at the poorly supported touchscreen glove space is the only pair of leather touchscreen gloves worth getting excited about or owning.The gloves are wind and waterproof Ethiopian lambskin, with a magnetic clasp that will make you happy every time you snap it.Of course, you don t really need the clasp because the gloves actually fit.No gross-looking fingertip dots here either.I immediately got my hands in older Mujjo s Single Layered Touchscreen Gloves back when they were first released, and while they were certainly the best I had used at the time, they weren t easy to snap, and they weren t leather.The Leather Touchscreen Gloves fix everything this product category has lacked up to this point, and are an easy recommendation for pretty much anyone.

Done right, your editorial calendar will help you manage ideas, streamline content production and promotion, align content with key touch points along the buyer s journey, and craft content that addresses key customer pain points while providing the fuel for marketing and sales to nurture prospects and turn leads into customers.If you choose to utilize an existing template, eliminate extraneous fields that you won t use; they re only a distraction.Here s a look at a few essential elements most businesses will use for an effective editorial calendar:Title or topic: You may not have a finalized title for every piece of content that goes into production, but you should have a general topic or working title.Product or service offering: If your company sells multiple products or services, aligning each content asset with the related offering in your editorial calendar results in more relevant content.In either case, it s helpful to document writers and editors responsible for each content asset for historical analysis over time.This field allows for quick reference and filtering when you re looking for ideas or assets relevant to an upcoming promotion or event and also helps you get more traction out of ideas – rather than disappearing into the black hole of a months-old email thread, you can rediscover ideas you can use today that would have gone unutilized otherwise.
Shares of the small tech company MGT Capital Investments were up more than 37% on Tuesday at $4.08 per share.With over 108 million shares traded, it was the most active stock, ahead of Bank of America.Tuesday was another day in a stream of strong upward moves for the stock after the company announced on May 9 that it was naming John McAfee, founder of antivirus firm McAfee Security, as CEO and re-branding the firm John McAfee Global Technologies Inc.The surge followed the McAfee announcement, which included a sudden shift in the business from online gaming to cybersecurity.MGT acquired D-Vasive, a company that produces software that protects cellphones, on May 9.Before the shift, the company focused on online games such as slots simulator SlotChamp and had a 10% stake in daily fantasy site DraftDay.com.The firm had no holdings regarding cybersecurity before the acquisition, according to its most recent annual filing.Here's what we know about the abrupt pivot so far:September 8, 2015: MGT sells all but 11% of its stake in DraftDay.com, according to its annual report.April 14: After delaying its annual report from March 31, MGT files its report, saying it has $359,000 in cash on hand.The report does say that following the sale of DraftDay, the firm is "considering all methods to create value for shareholders, including potential mergers, spin-offs, distributions and other strategic actions.Brauser has been sued numerous times for fraud involving small, publicly listed firms, though some of those allegations have been dismissed.The most recent was dismissed in September 2015, for the company IDI Inc. Brauser was also CEO of an email-marketing company, Naviant, which was acquired and eventually sued by credit agency Equifax after the firm accused the shareholder sellers of fraud.According to that filing, Silverman and his firm no longer have any representation on the board.May 9: McAfee is named chairman and CEO, and the company buys Wyoming-based cybersecurity firm D-Vasive for $300,000 in cash and 4,760,000 in shares of MGT.

This is believed to be the second year in a row that the government has blocked access to the internet in the days leading up to and during the exams.Doug Madory, Dyn's internet analysis director, told Voactive: "There was certainly a lot of skepticism about this explanation last summer, but the outages did coincide with exams and nothing emerged to dispute the explanation."A leaked email by Iraqi ISP, obtained by Lebanon based technology and human rights group SMEX, specified the timings of the outages.As an anonymous source explained: "What happens usually is that some teachers would be giving the exams questions to students who pay money, then those students would sell online questions all over country.In 2014, Uzbekistan enforced a nationwide internet outage to curb cheating.Internet freedom activist group Access Now's senior global advocacy manager Deji Olukotun said: "We see this, especially in such a destabilized country as Iraq, as really terrible.
