"Nudges" or how using opaque containers for candy helped drop the pounds at Google.
This is an exclusive, abridged excerpt from my book, Work Rules!A Googler named Todd Carlisle once said the ultimate recruiting slogan would be “work at Google and live longer.” He wasn’t joking.For years we’d been testing ways to improve the quantity and quality of Googlers’ lives. And because we provide free meals and snacks to Googlers, we found ourselves in a unique position to test whether insights from academic research would apply in the r...

Couple of things come to mind: is this "Google 15" phenomenon Google-specific? From what I hear it's more of a "coding minus 20" phenomenon: coders live 20 years fewer than regular humans: lots of responsibility, crazy deadlines, crazy hours. (Coders earn a tad more than mere humans, too, though.) I'd rather they gain weight than die, and do so with high quality locally sourced edibles. :)

Two, Google here is only an example of how "nudging" may work. The article makes it clear it's not widely implemented at Google. So let's separate sharing results from a very limited experiment from "misleading cheerleader propagandizing by the evil overlord of corporate culture". What the article is talking about, "nudges" or lack thereof (think tobacco or soft drinks advertising targeting teenagers) can be extremely powerful. So I am all for making chocolate- and candy-filled checkout corridors at Best Buy illegal, however "misleading cheerleader propagandizing by the evil overlord of corporate culture" it might be deemed by some. :)

Ingredients: milk, cream, whey protein concentrate, modified food starch, sodium (that's salt, right?), tripolyphosphate, guar gum, calcium sulfate, carrageenan, locust bean gum, dextrose, potassium sorbate. They have a shorter name for all that: "homemade sour cream". Phew.

Illuminating. Number one reason for crashes and fatalities: drivers not paying attention. Approximately one out of 10 cars on my daily 60-mile commute has a visibly distracted driver: lane drifting, eyes off the road, failure to keep distance, delayed reaction to traffic conditions. Scary.
After 1.7 million miles we’ve learned a lot — not just about our system but how humans drive, too.

In February 2013, they sold and installed a set of Nitto tires on my 2008 R32 - and did so affordably, quickly, professionally. The set lasted two years and 30K miles of spirited driving - no easy feat. Today, they repaired a tire on my 2015 Prius C Four that had a screw in it and was losing air - and did it quickly, professionally - and at no charge - just because I was an existing client. Or maybe it was a token of consolation for trading an R32 for a Prius which no sane human should be allowed to do. ;) It was the same tire that a Toyota dealership declared to be "irreparable" a few days ago. Thank you Mike, Cesar and America's Tire - I am floored by your service and professionalism.

I've known Noel for several years and this isn't the first time he's done wiring and installation jobs for me and my business which included network wiring, solving a difficult electrical wiring issue, and just recently, installation of a dimmable track light. Every time it's a stellar job; Noel is: - punctual - reasonable - considerate - clean - really knows his stuff Kudos Noel - you are One Good Electrician.
