Why Big Companies Buy Small Ones. While they can establish the same… | by Ezz El Din Abdullah | Brainwave | Jan, 2021 | Medium

On January 14 this year, Google bought Fitbit (a wearables company) for 2.1 billion dollars!The question is why a big name like Google buy a smaller company like Fitbit and such an acquisition is worth billions of dollars?!The same question goes for many big names and another question comes up because these big companies have very talented engineers who are able to replicate what small ones can do. So what makes big companies think about buying more in the first place?Reasons may differ from one company to another; it may also interchange with another reason, but we can distill some...

A New Kind of Gene Editing Could Turn Back the Clock on a Rapid Aging Disease | by Emily Mullin | Jan, 2021 | Future Human

is a column from Future Human about the ways humans are using biology to reprogram our bodies and the world around us.hildren who are born with a rare genetic disease called progeria tragically live, on average, only until their mid-teens, though they look much older. Their bodies age so rapidly — up to 10 times faster than normal — that they usually die prematurely from heart attacks or strokes before they can finish high school. The culprit is a single-letter misspelling in their DNA.Now, scientiss have successfully corrected this misspelling in mice that have the disease by using a new...

The Gig Economy Is White People Discovering Servants | by Indi Samarajiva | Medium

The Gig Economy Is White People Discovering Servants | by Indi Samarajiva | Medium

At some point in the last century Americans, having gotten rid of slavery, accidentally lifted their incomes so much that they found themselves isolated in suburban houses, surrounded by machinery, cleaning their own toilets. They had rising incomes but everyone’s incomes were rising which means that there was no one to do stuff for you, and you couldn’t just buy people anymore.This century the vaunted American midde class has bottomed out and the place has started to look more like the ‘developing’ world, with a definite underclass. However, lacking generations of feudal tradition and...

Why employers will have no choice but to embrace remote working | by Simon Moxon | Jan, 2021 | Medium

Why employers will have no choice but to embrace remote working | by Simon Moxon | Jan, 2021 | Medium

ost company owners would agree that the most important asset is their employees, and one of the biggest challenges of building and growing a business is recruiting and retaining a high performing team. Those companies that plan to force their teams to return to sitting in the office 9–5 every day or plan on waiting before they adopt remote working, might just end up putting that asset at risk.Here’s my thoughts on why:Let’s face it, the most reent experience of remote working has been the worst example, with many not having felt the real benefits. Adoption was forced, we’ve been locked down...

Hey Lombardo, Condemning Violence Has No Nuance | by Michael Wanamaker | Jan, 2021 | Medium

Among residents of Billerica, Massachusetts, it is no secret that Marc Lombardo, our State Representtive, faces heavy criticism on posts uploaded to his public social media, and it should be of little surprise. Lombardo’s legacy might be the fact that, love him or hate him, he is tied for the lowest score by the group . , which would ensure access to safe abortions for teenagers, and in 2018, when Massachusetts legislators approved a via conversion therapy, Lombardo was one of the few who voted against the ban. Given his anti-choice, anti-LGBT+ stances, it seems that when he says he’s...

A $15 an Hour Minimum Wage Isn’t Much to Ask For | GEN

A $15 an Hour Minimum Wage Isn’t Much to Ask For | GEN

was 16 when I got my first job at a McDonald’s in upstate New York. It was the fall of 2014; I waspaid $8 an hour. It was around this time that I started thinking of my purchases in terms of time. A gallon of milk was around $3, slightly less than half an hour of labor. The cost of the average meal at McDonald’s was around $7, meaning that when a customer ordered a large Big Mac meal, they were spending what would take me just under an hour to earn. It would cost about $35 to fill up my car with gas — around four and a half hours of labor.In January of 2015, New York state raised the...

13 Ways Trump Isn’t Conservative. The label “Never Trump” is off the mark… | by Heath Mayo | Medium

The label “Never Trump” is off the mark — not because true conservatives could potentially support Trump, but because our rejection of him has nothing to do with his name or who he is. Instead, rejection of Trump has everything to do with his policies and behavior as President. In more ways than not, his conduct has been antithetical to conservatism’s core, in direct tension with most everything for which we’ve claimed to fight in the past.Put simply, Trump is not conservative. Here are just a few reasons why (in no particular order):Trump has unilaterally in contravention of free trade and...

Don’t Fight the Fed, Adapt Your Strategy To Protect Your Future Regarding Money | by Sylvain Saurel | Making of a Millionaire | Jan, 2021 | Medium

the world of investment, some adages are often repeated. Among these adages, there is one that is perfectly suited to the situation we have been experiencing since the beginning of the COVID-19 crisis. This adage is easy to remember:“Don’t fight the Fed”This adage is based on a rather simple observation.In today’s monetary and financial system, central banks dictate the rules of the game. As the central bank of the world’s leading economic power, the Fed is obviously the one dictating the rules of the game to the rest of the world.When the Fed decides to print more than $3,500 billion out...

A Brief History of Web Design Tools And the original sin | by Eden Vidal | Relate | Jan, 2021 | Medium

How much have design tools changed since the dawn of Xerox technologies in the 80s? Have the basic conventions shifted much? Let’s find out that and more.The guys at Xerox probably didn’t have the biggest idea of how far things would go when they came up with the laser printing technologies back in the mid-1980s. However, the world of print and design hasn’t been the same since. Growing with new capabilities at the turn of every passing decade and becoming a firmly established industry with its place in the “global market of opportunities”.It sur would be interesting to look at the whole...

Please, teach me your ways.”Awoken from a nice long afternoon nap, the old crocodile glanced at the young crocodile with one of his reptilian eyes, said nothing and then fell back asleep atop the water.Feeling frustrated and disrespected, the young crocodile swam off upriver to chase after some catfish, leaving behind a flurry of bubbles. “I’ll show him,” he thought to himself.Later that day the young crocodile...

Companies Take Risks When Making Secret Political Contributions | by Texas McCombs | Big Ideas | Jan, 2021 | Medium

Based on the research of Timothy Wernerompanies often secretly contribute to political nonprofits to influence public policy. But depending on the organization they contribute to, it’s a risky practice.If discovered, this so-called covert corporate political activity can threaten a company’s reputation and even drag down its share price. When investors find out that companies they’ve invested in have given money to controversial organizations, they react negatively, punishing the “irresponsible” business by driving down its stock price.“Companies should really be thinking about the...

TLDR: Prop 13 bad. Repeal it and things will slowly get better.In 1978 California passed one of the single most deleterious ballot propositions in its history. With Proposition 13, home assessments would no longer be indexed to home values for the purposes of calculating property taxes. Ostensibly, this was to secure people in their homes, protected from the insatiable greed of the taxman. Instead, it undermined one of the key reasons that a government has any reason to help its citizens at all.Governments at eery level seek revenues to exchange for support. The primary mechanism they have...

You could be forgiven for thinking that disinformation and misinformation are new conditions afflicting our democracies. From rumours about pizza store paedophile rings, sneaky death taxes and COVID test microchips — it seems like all of a sudden our public life is flooded with absurd yet oddly believable reinterpretations of truth.But by diving into history we can discover that this is far from the first time that a new technology, empowering ordinary people to share information with massive groups of peers, can turn our social norms upside down. For good, and for ill.During the 1500s...
