Looking at you, +Jonathan Eng (commissioner of culture :-)

"Whether you’re launching a startup or managing an established enterprise, you have to go out of your way to make people happy -- it doesn’t just happen. Create this job for yourself, just like the Himalayan kingdom of Bhutan created the Gross National Happiness Commission, overseen by a secretary whose task is to look after the population’s happiness."
The serial entrepreneur shares how you can increase productivity by boosting employee satisfaction.

Cute way to brush up on your CSS
No worries, you've got this! You're about to learn CSS Selectors! Selectors are how you pick which element to apply styles to. Exhibit 1 - A CSS Rule. p { margin-bottom: 12px; }. Here, the "p" is the selector (selects all elements) and applies the margin-bottom style.
