"How To Meditate" by Louis CK. I can't stop watching and appreciating his genius in this interview. Louis attacks a rampant problem in a profound way, while keeping the conversation light and humorous enough for the message to sink in on a deep level.

"While this effect may be attributable in part to correction of hyperinsulinemia, other mechanisms associated with ketosis such as reduced inflammation and enhanced energy metabolism also may have contributed to improved neurocognitive function."

I read an interesting pair of articles today.

1. UT Law Student releases an open source CAD file of a full working, 3D-printable plastic receiver (ie, a printable gun).

2. Now You Can Buy 3D Printers From Staples

3D Printing is about to revolutionize the world much faster than Bitcoin. I'm excited to follow its tidal wave of disruption through the manufacturing industry.

What is the ROI of a twitter follower?

http://blog.hubspot.com/blog/tabid/6307/bid/34185/The-Marketer-s-Ultimate-Guide-to-Measuring-the-ROI-of-Twitter-Vine.aspx

What about twitter followers that don't/won't convert (eg, random or auto-follows)? Marketers need bucket spend followers, not just promoted tweets.

I like Phil Gross' answer better: http://www.adexchanger.com/data-driven-thinking/the-case-for-twitter-investment-an-roi-focused-attribution-approach/

Benchmark lifetime value of a twitter follower against ad monthly spend to acquire followers.

My experience is limited to shopping in the mens' section on the top floor. I enjoy this BR store for many reasons. The store layout is very open and the ceilings are tall; this makes for an enjoyable shopping experience. Different clothing lines are tiered on half levels, and there are multiple checkout registers and fitting rooms on the top floor. Experienced BR shoppers know about the sale section in the back. I tend to head straight there each time I visit this store. It's a bit more crowded than the rest of the upper level, but justifiably so. 40% off one regular item every Wednesday and almost always some kind of sale on weekends.

I went to Lawry's with a friend for Saturday lunch as part of an event hosted by Google Plus Local in Chicago. This is a fancy restaurant with a long history, which I had been totally unaware of until the event. The building itself is actually a mansion with a long history, popular for large banquent events for the city's elite and deep-pocketed. It attracts wealthy customers, Asian tourists, and even Michael Jordan (he signed his first contract with the Bulls at Lawry's). The service is impeccable - what you might expect from a 4 or 5 star restaurant. The ambience is very cool, but might have been more tailored towards dinner events. Knowledge of Lawry's history adds to the gravity of the decor, and I suggest getting a small tour from Michael, the manager, before dining.

I'd never heard of Adagio before coming to Chicago. This place is awesome. It caters to everyone from tea beginners to connoisseurs. They have a large wall of tea jars and you are free to whiff and waft as you please. Any casual mention of something that piqued your interested will prompt an Adagio tea expert to prepare the tea for you on the spot. They have $19 tasting sessions on the weekends, but they fill up quickly so book in advance (and keep an eye out for daily deals). Adagio carries a modest selection of glassware, seeping cups, ceramic teapots, to-go cups, and more traditional cast iron pots for tea ceremonies.

This DSW wins on accessibility, employee knowledge, and store layout. It misses slightly on selection: they didn't carry any Chuck Taylors by John Varvatos. I was greeted very kindly after entering and two employees searched the entire store for the Varvatos' but didn't find them. This is a great alternative to Nordstorm Rack if you live in LP/Lakeview... better selection and shoes in better condition. I look forward to going back for some summer kicks.

I stayed at the nHow for 3 nights during a business conference. The hotel caters to many hip business folks, as well as musicians and other art-types. At a glance, the hotel looks all trend. We quickly came to find that the pink and purple panache WAS the hotel, not a kitschy overlay. My biggest gripe, though, is with the rooms. They were very small and offered little ventilation at night. The respite was to open our window, but the window opened to a busy street. The sheets were some odd fabric that didn't breathe and myself and my roommate wolk up in a sweat each morning. Further, the wifi was terribly weak. Despite many efforts by the hotel staff to help, we felt handicapped without the ability to work from our laptops. This was particularly befuddling since the hotel caters to many internet types (PubKon was hosted during the same weekend). The service however, was fantastic. The concierge and bartenders are very polite and cordial and they make hotel great. There is free coffee and tea during daytime hours and a small business center with printer. The art selection at the nHow is hip and cool and adds to the experience. Pieces of the Berlin wall line the boardwalk outside the hotel, which also has tables chairs for dining and socializing. Another big plus: the breakfast is amazing, though a bit pricey. The nHow is a fun hotel, but it leaves a lot to be desired.

Extremely busy on weekends, the men's section on the third floor feels crammed and overpopulated. Not surprising considering the store is less than 30% men's clothing. Service: responsive, fast, and friendly. The fitting room attendees had a great sense of humor and were patient with customers, despite long waiting lines. Perhaps I'm too familiar with the more quiet shopping experiences in suburban malls or smaller cities like Boston, but this H&M just felt uncomfortably busy to the point where it was difficult to shop with a clear head. Only advice: don't go during peak hours.

I've made 3 visits to this Apple store to fix a 2011 MBP (covered by Apple care). Each time, I've been happy with the service. If you plan to visit the Genius Bar on a weekend, schedule your appointment at least a day in advance because the store fills up quickly after opening its doors. Conveniently, you can make appointments before the store even opens to avoid the noise and bustle. The ambience is not grandiose like some Apple stores in major cities, but it's spacious and naturally-lit.
