Something all-too easy to forget
 
"If you spend your life only learning from survivors, buying books about successful people and poring over the history of companies that shook the planet, your knowledge of the world will be strongly biased and enormously incomplete."

+David McRaney has this and LOTS more to say about Survivorship Bias. Start with his blog post, move on to his book, and become less incomplete.
The Misconception: You should focus on the successful if you wish to become successful. The Truth: When failure becomes invisible, the difference between failure and success may also become invisib...

Well written article that strengthens my argument against the use of statistics in journalism. Something many of us (including myself) are guilty of: don't use science to prove a point unless you're certain that you understand said science

Before declaring that declining iPad sales mean the product is dying, Wall Street should read a little more into one of Jony Ive's biggest inspirations, Dieter Rams.

Why do we critique Apple for building a product with longevity?

An excellent response to +Maclean's Magazine's sensationalist journalism from David Wheeler in the form of an interview

Is racism a problem in #Winnipeg ? Yes

More importantly though, was the issue distorted in the name of getting a shocking cover story that might sell a few extra magazines? Absolutely

+Chris Formosa has really been cranking out some great content on the +Strutta blog, and this latest post is a real doozy

In the post is a comprehensive run-down of Social Media metrics and KPIs that, when tracked, provide an objective understanding of the success (or failure) of your social media presence

Stay tuned to the blog (http://www.strutta.com/blog/) for more gems like this!
Despite its inherent benefits, social media, like other approaches to marketing, cannot be managed without a strategy. Without proper monitoring of Key Performance Indicators, or KPIs, it's impossible to understand how effective your tactics really are.

CEN Biotech case is not a matter for Health Canada to respond to directly. This goes into breaking the rules of being a publicly traded company. 

Chaaban's comparison of an imaginary PR representative to a brand icon such as "Mr. Clean" is ridiculous

Correct course of events: Ontario Securities Commission investigation followed Then by reconsideration by Health Canada
Latest revelation about CEN Biotech raises questions about Health Canada’s oversight of this new sector – expected to grow into a multibillion-dollar industry

Just had our fridge fixed by City Wide. Overall, great experience. Only downside: tried to book using their online registration system, received a confirmation that my registration was received but they never got it on their end. Followed up with a call a few days later, got an appointment booked for the next business day. Serviceman who came over was polite and informative, got the problem fixed in a timely manner and for a good price. Would recommend/use again
