      7 Lessons White People Can Learn From Bodega’s Apology

      In case you hadn’t seen, a new startup called Bodega launched this week, its headline claiming to want to “make mom and pop stores obsolete.” Much to the surprise of the founders and investors, but not surprising to the rest of the internet, it was not well received.

      The Father Of Mobile Computing Is Not Impressed

      Alan Kay grins beneath his gray mustache and leads me through his Brentwood home. It’s a nice place with a tennis court out back, but given the upper-crust Los Angeles neighborhood it sits in, it’s hardly ostentatious. He shares it with his wife, Bonnie MacBird, the author and actress who penned the original script for Tron. Kay is one of the forefathers of personal computing; he’s what you can safely call a living legend.

      This Is How To Actually Work Smarter, Not Harder

      Possibly no piece of productivity advice is more well-worn than the adage, “Work smarter, not harder.” Of course, the directive points to the fact that it’s not how many hours you put in at your desk that matters—it’s how you spend your time there. In other words, get results faster and you won’t be spending so many late nights at the office. But what does it really mean to work smarter?

      6 Ways To Improve Your Crappy Salary And Your Career At The Same Time

      I grossed a whopping $23,244 my first year out of college–a starting salary that might be manageable in some cities but proved pretty tight in New York. Needless to say, side hustling quickly became a necessary way of life for me in order to supplement my meager income. But while I found I could make decent money babysitting and slinging lattes, it soon became important to find side gigs that benefited my career, too, instead of just my bank account. Here are six ways you can do the same. 1.

      When Apple holds a big event to announce new products–as it did yesterday for the iPhone X, iPhone 8, Apple Watch Series 3, and Apple TV 4K–the company tends to avoid negativity. Any downsides or trade-offs in Apple’s latest products only start trickling out after the event is over, when product pages go live and the press starts asking questions.

      Maybe it’s been a few months since you’ve graduated and you’re getting anxious to land a job. Or maybe you’re further on in your career and looking to move into a new industry. In either case, there’s one major hitch: You’ve heard how helpful it can be to reach out to people outside of your network .

      These Are The 5 Brain Skills You’ll Need In The Future Of Work

      “About 20 years ago, it was seen as really important to be strategic rather than tactical,” says neuroscientist Tara Swart. But advances in her field, combined with the shifting demands of modern employers, have begun to change that. “Now, I think an understanding of the cognitive sciences is going to be the thing that makes people thrive.” Indeed, as Swart points out, there’s a growing understanding that deeply human capabilities–the skills, including those rooted in emotional intelligence, that aren’t so easily automated–may be rising in value in the future job market.

More often than not, those appointments distract them from their real priorities.
