Why Costco Food Courts Have Charged $1.50 For Hot Dogs Since 1985

That'd be the hot-dog-and-soda combo, which has cost $1.50 since 1985. While Costco menu items vary across the US and around the globe, the hot-dog meal is one major constant.

And the staple isn't just static — it's popular. It was recently reported that Costco sells "100 million hot dogs a year"... Read the rest of the article and their reasoning for continuing this tradition here → https://goo.gl/xGc1Ku

It’s a growing phenomenon and there’s much to learn from the chicken chain and all its success. For more, here are 23 crazy facts about Chick-fil-A. → https://goo.gl/xjsXJt

How You Are Tracked Online, And What You Can Do About It

Though Facebook gets the attention because of a recent privacy gaffe, the social network is far from alone in collecting massive amounts of data on you to help marketers sell you stuff.

Google, for one, also does extensive tracking to power its advertising engines. And many other websites and apps run ads sold by Facebook and Google and exchange data with them. Beyond that, plenty of services including Uber and Amazon keep detailed histories on you.

Here are some of the ways to block or minimize such tracking — but they come with trade-offs. Read the rest of the article → https://goo.gl/At5ivX

What's In Your Facebook Data File?

The Cambridge Analytica scandal continues to roll on. As it does, people are becoming more and more aware of just how much data Facebook has on them.

One easy (yet slightly horrifying) way to see it all in one place is to request all of your Facebook data as a zip file. A lot of people have been trying this over the last week, and have been pretty shocked by how much of their information the tech giant has.

While most people would expect Facebook to have data on how they use the app, they're a little shocked to discover it has access to everything from all the contacts on their phone to a record of every text message they've ever sent or received, even if they don't use Facebook Messenger. But that's not all Facebook has.


Here's an instruction link to access your Facebook data → https://www.facebook.com/help/405183566203254

Take A Nap Today .. Don't Be Bashful .. It's OK. "Today"

National Napping Day is observed annually the day following the return of daylight saving time. National Napping Day provides everyone with the opportunity to have a nap and catch up on the hour of sleep they lost due to the spring forward time change.

Numerous studies have shown that short 10-20 minute naps are the most effective when midday fatigue hits. Improvements in alertness, productivity and mood have all been shown to improve with this type of snooze.

Though there are some of us who are just not the napping kind, if you can reap those benefits, find a cozy spot for 10 minutes or so on National Napping Day.
