Is the rent too damn high? A Harvard study says yes, according to Bloomberg Businessweek.
Bloomberg Businessweek asked various people at different companies what their after-work routines are.
Bloomberg Businessweek has published it's big multimedia package on the fifth anniversary of the financial crisis, and it leads with Hank Paulson who left Goldman Sachs in 2006 to become Treasury Secretary and had a rough time dealing with the financial crisis and pushed through the big bailout bill that so many critics deemed as ineffective and wasteful. HANK, a documentary about Paulson by the magazine and filmmaker Joe Berlinger will be released on Netflix on Sept. 16, and the print edition as Paulson in his own words, which can be summed up thusly: "So today it’s worse." Thanks Hank!
Mexican Coke has a small, but devoted slice of the Coke-drinkers market (a majority love Coca-Cola Classic, there are tons of Diet Coke admirers, and then there are the cherry and vanilla lovers). Mexican Coke uses real cane sugar (instead of the Coke in the U.S. which uses high-fructose corn syrup), and is bottled in small glass bottles—this for some people is all the difference. So much so that when the Mexican bottler of Coca-Cola let it slip that it was considering switching to high-fructose corn syrup to save money, fans of Mexican Coke expressed enough outrage to get the Mexican bottler to stick with cane sugar.
Here's another terrible thing about being an unpaid intern (besides, you know, the whole unpaid part): Since unpaid interns aren't considered employees, Lihuan Wang cannot bring a sexual harassment claim against her former supervisor under the New York City Human Rights Law. According to Bloomberg Businessweek, the New York City Council "has had several opportunities to amend the law to protect unpaid interns but has declined to do so." Phoenix, the media company Wang worked for as an unpaid intern, says that their New York bureau chief Liu Zhengzhu no longer works for them, but says they never talked to him about any of the allegations.
There have been several times throughout my career where I considered creating a personal website for myself, but it never happened (and now that this website exists, I don't really need one anymore). Also, mike dang dot com has already been taken by a developer with my name who lives in Texas, and I'm sure he's getting a lot more out of it than I would (there is also a prominent surgeon who lives in Hawaii with my name, and perhaps he'd like the url too). Tell me: Do you have a personal website? Has it been helpful to have it?
On his new album, Jay-Z chides other rappers about how much money they say they have compared to what they actually have, and Bloomberg Businessweek went ahead and did some fact-checking for him.
If you like hedge funds, you'll like this new dating site. I think we're going to pass on this one!
I basically tend to wear the same thing to work most days, but I'm interested in knowing how other people address what to wear to work, which is why I enjoy Bloomberg Businessweek's series on what people wear to work. Christopher Hines, a 23-year-old associate product marketing manager wears pants from the Gap and custom-made shirts from Hong Kong. Jolie Anne O’Dell, a 31-year-old tech reporter for VentureBeat wears a lot of vintage clothing she finds. California Pizza Kitchen CEO G.J. Hart wears blue jeans and Robert Graham shirts, which usually features bold patterns. [See the series from Arianne Cohen here.]
If there's a one coffee jingle I know, it belongs to Folgers—even if it's not the brand I buy at the grocery store. But it's still America's favorite coffee, according to Bloomberg Businessweek which shows Folgers leading with 15.6 percent of the U.S. market (third-party brands were in second, Green Mountain has 4.3 percent, and Starbucks has 3.3 percent of the market). I generally tend to buy fresh beans at the store and have them ground fresh. Are you a Folgers fan? What do you like to buy?
