      Google Created A Horserace Tracker

      I was pretty worried that we weren't getting enough minute-by-minute horserace coverage from the media, so I'm quite relieved that this was made. That said, this is kind of a neat way to visualize how moment-to-moment the campaign can be—searches don't necessarily mean votes, but still, it's a reminder that until the American people cast their votes, we won't really know who is going to be our next president.

      When Picasso got bored with painting things as they appeared, he began to experiment with colors and shapes—an endeavor he would pursue for the rest of his life. My grandfather, the painter, loved Picasso. In his house were abstract oil paintings, attempts at mimicking the master. Because of these paintings, I always assumed Picasso just painted things a little weirdly. But that wasn’t the case at all. By the age of 16, young Pablo had conquered realism.

      The conversation on corporate diversity is finally leading some companies to retool their recruiting processes. That's important and laudable, but tends to miss out on one thing: What happens once employees arrive? What makes them stay, and what drives their success at the company when they do?
