Astreia: Sustainable Shelters for Life on Mars...Or Earth

Elon Musk may be building spaceships to take humanity to Mars, but what happens once we get there? It's not exactly a hospitable environment, with average temperatures around -81ºF, almost no oxygen or atmosphere, and extreme radiation, notes neuroscientist and AI enthusiast Natalie Rens. So she created Astreia. Astreia homes are designed and fabricated as a complete set of components that assemble like LEGO® pieces, providing a self-sufficient habitat that can be built anywhere — even on...

It's just a kiss away: Red lips phone debuts for Valentine's Day and Rolling Stones' tour

When you think rock 'n' roll and statement lips, who comes immediately to mind? Yep, Mick Jagger. The Rolling Stones front man has been as famous for his mouth as for his music for more than 60 years, and the band still commands a stage like the legends they are. The Stones' protruding tongue and lips logo is arguably one of the most iconic logos anywhere, not just in the music industry. Yet surprisingly, the logo wasn't modeled on Mick's generous mouth but on the Hindu goddess Kali.

Your Feet — And Why They Are Underrated

The average person walks 100,000 miles in a lifetime. Most of us trade in our cars long before they reach this milestone. Since a single pair of feet must go the distance regardless of wear and tear, in lieu of changing the metaphorical tires we need to keep our existing treads in peak condition.

Five Tips to Hire the Right Freelancer in the New Remote Economy

A decade ago, the Intuit 2020 Report asked founders and hiring managers to, "Imagine a world where companies motivate and manage employees who never set foot in their corporate office...". ‍ That was prescient counsel.

Why Dental Health Care Is Crucial for Seniors

It may surprise you, but senior dental health and overall health go hand in hand. Poor oral health can lead to serious illness. In the past, television commercials tended to feature denture products as if it were normal for older adults to lose their teeth and need artificial replacements. It’s not.

Automating the customer journey: Making marketing personal AND scalable

Between social media, email, and the plethora of platforms designed to support a business in 2015, many companies assume marketing will be a slam-dunk. Yet even with a website, blog, Twitter, and Facebook, they find e-blasts can generate more unsubscribes than orders, and the bottom line is stagnant. What gives?

Got data? How's that working for you?

Mission-motivated. Dashboard-driven. KPIs. Marketers are buzzword masters when discussing marketing strategy with top management. But are they in the driver's seat when it comes to maximizing their data? There are four kinds of data a marketer might use to create exceptional customer journeys.

Changing channels: The right approach to multichannel marketing automation

For many customers, it's a mobile-first world. But that doesn't mean they're exclusively mobile, or use just one mobile device.

Hunger Games: How "Culinary Currency" is reshaping the food industry

How to See Yourself As An Artist

Are you an artist? You’re probably thinking, “no, not me.” Here in the West, we’ve been taught to squelch our creative impulse — especially at work.

Do You Eat Like A Bachelor?

I was standing at the kitchen sink, sectioning and devouring a juicy orange, when my housemate Joe walked in. "You eat like a bachelor!" he exclaimed, amused. "Take a plate and sit at the table." But I was being practical: the orange was so juicy it made more sense to peel and eat it over the sink.
Why You Can't Just "Get Over" Anxiety

If you've been injured on the job or on the road, you were probably pretty shaken up at the time. That's natural.

Suppose you're physically recovered from a car crash, yet still feel tense and worried most of the time. Your mates might say, "Get over it!"

UberHealth: Caring for aging parents from afar

Getting your elderly parents to see a doctor can be tough. "I'm fine," they quaver, though that "little cough" could be bronchitis - or the spike in blood pressure may signal heart disease.

Air conditioning is essential for Singapore's hot, humid weather: in our schools, hotels, and industrial buildings. Yet the cost of running continuous aircon can be prohibitive.
