Interesting!

Early last month, finance reporter Joseph Weisenthal was poached from Business Insider by Bloomberg to build an entirely fresh news property and host an upcoming show on Bloomberg TV. Between jobs, he was without a place to publish, which we imagine was borderline torture for someone with a world-eating appetite for news. So on November 6, when he had…

A growing portion of mobile marketers' ad spend is going to retargeting existing customers by showing them relevant ads in other mobile apps or sites, like Facebook, for example.

"Lots of people think kids are done with Facebook. No way, says Facebook: Kids love Facebook!  But, let’s say Facebook was concerned — maybe just a little bit — that the kids were no longer alright. Where should it go to find them?

If you say Snapchat, or Instagram, or something along those lines, you might be sort of right. But you’re mostly wrong. The best place to find kids on the Web is +YouTube."
At the world's biggest video site, teens and tweens rule.

LOVE this Doodle!
#Hungarian
 
Happy Hungarian National Day! Our doodle is inspired by the cockades many Hungarians wear today to celebrate the 1848 Revolution.

Amending my 1-star review to 2-star: I really liked the service (and of course the lovely Aveda products) and that they "fixed" my hair for free when I came back 2 days after my original appointment. That said, the "fix" appointment took another 4 hours and, while the results are MUCH better than before, it still doesn't look great. So I won't be going back. I suppose that if you were able to book with one of the instructors, or a very senior student, and you have very simple needs, this could be a great deal. But I don't think I'd trust them with hair color or anything but a very simple haircut. In the end, you get what you pay for. Original 1-star review: DO NOT go here for hair color. Against my better instincts, I booked a full highlight with a senior, because the discount is just so good. They didn't have a senior, so I got a sophomore. First of all, the service took 4 hours. That's a bit crazy, but that wasn't the worst part. My hair is WAY too light. It's now either white blond or brassy. The part is really poorly done, and I have about an inch of roots, and then a BRIGHT white layer of blonde. And there are several obvious spots where she put too much color, others where she didn't apply it evenly, and it is just a blotchy mess. These are students. Don't trust them with your hair.

Rachel is the best, especially if you want natural-looking blonde highlights. I like that she hands paints them on. Plus, she's totally the nicest ever and gives great cuts, too, whether short or long. I like that she'll only cut my hair when I really need it -- but bang trims between cuts are free! Service here is great. Expect NYC prices, but you won't be disappointed. After many years in NYC I've finally found my salon. :)

Wow. Pretty close to the best lardo I've ever had -- covered in smoky paprika and it melts in your mouth, amazing. The pulpo is perfectly cooked and tender, and the tortilla espanola is off the hook delicious. The albondigas were also delicious, as were the garlic shrimp. And my goodness, that bacalao! I mean, basically everything here is spot on. A must-try spot in Asheville.

Okay Mexican spot but nothing to write home about. Big space with a private upstairs area that can be rented for events (includes dance floor and bar). Big downstairs bar. Food is generic. Could be a decent spot if you're in a pinch in Midtown -- also, good live music.

Everything I had here was lovely. The smoked potato salad was hands-down the best potato salad I have had --- seriously, get it. You'll love it. The lamb sausage with peppers and onions is good, too. All the breads are tasty. The gem lettuce is fresh and delicious. I thought their use of herbs was inventive and delightful. Also, a lot of the reviews here reference Hungarian food -- I'm first-generation, and I can tell you that there's nothing Hungarian about this menu. That said, I'd happily return! Only downside was that there didn't seem to be a dessert menu at brunch, and I was craving something sweet.

Amazing chocolate chip cookies and crazy-indulgent hot chocolate with marshmallows. Bright, cavernous, modern space that's always buzzing with people. Great spot for a gab session with a friend or a casual first date. You really can't go wrong.

Yama has fresh fish and good sushi at relatively reasonable prices - that's why you go. That said, it's incredibly cramped, with tables about 1 foot apart (you'll feel like you're dining family-style with strangers; the bonus is that you might make some new friends). The ceilings are also low, so if you have claustrophobia, definitely do not go here. Also, the waitstaff is borderline rude, so if you're sensitive, this is not the place for you. If you want quality sushi and don't care about the atmosphere (or like crowds), this is a good spot for you. Somehow my friend and I keep coming back -- I guess we're gluttons for punishment. That being said, I think the novelty has worn off for me.
