If you storm out on your significant other during an argument, remember to grab your phone charger. Having to go back in for it ruins all the drama.

Facebook COO +Sheryl Sandberg has taken her Lean In phenomenon one step further. It's Lean In Together and in it, she extols and then enjoins men to assist and support women in their ascent. Equal pay advocacy is also a part of this.
As the husband of a very successful Sacramento area attorney, I feel her!

#sherylsandberg #leanintogether #leanin


“Lean In Together” is the latest slogan in Sheryl Sandberg’s campaign to bring women more power in the workplace, and its goal is to persuade men that it’s not just women who benefit when men help women succeed. She spoke to Yahoo News.

Yep, peanuts! Stop feeling guilty about peanut butter as well. Peanuts and tree nuts (walnuts, pecans, and almonds) may help people live longer because they are rich in nutrients with known health benefits, including unsaturated fats, fiber, antioxidants and vitamins. Some of these plant-based chemicals could help maintain the heart’s endothelial function, which affects the cells lining blood vessels, and they also have antioxidant and anti-inflammatory effects that may be cardio protective.
Get rid of sugary treats, and eat these nuts instead.

A new study shows people who eat peanuts are likely to live longer. Not a bad perk for eating the tasty, protein-packed snack!

If you're not into wearables, you, very soon, will be. Smart watches will replace smart phones as the "never leave home without it" device. They will be to smart phones what smart phones now are to tablets. As smart watches get smaller and more fashion accessory-like, their use will increase.

Telecom company executives are meeting in Barcelona for the Mobile World Congress, the largest annual trade show for the wireless industry. As Ivor Bennett reports from the show wearable technology is one of the big themes.

Putting the Internet of Things together with big data is a real boon to companies who embraced them. This combination helps them see what's coming and spots potential risks, helping them make better informed decisions.
Manufacturing, Logistics and Transport, and IT and Technology were the most likely industry segments to report implementing, or planning to implement, big data. Conversely, Healthcare, Education and Business Services and Consulting were the least likely to do so.

A study from Tech Pro Research shows how combining IoT with big data is benefiting organizations by helping them see what's coming, spotting potential risks and making better informed decisions.
