I'd never heard of him before this. Apparently, I wasn't alone: "In fact, most Americans, even those well versed in business, have probably never heard of Stephen Hemsley, the outgoing boss at America's largest insurer . . ."
Remember the fiduciary rule, the one that “requires brokers to act in the best interests of savers and went into partial effect in June”? Who could be opposed to such a thing? But of course when a regulation sounds so very good, there is usually some other consideration around the corner, perhaps involving secondary consequences. And, as some of us had predicted, it is not working out so well.
"We went to Waffle House — the American highway staple beloved by truckers — and discovered why Anthony Bourdain and chefs are obsessed with it"
Business Insider deigns to visit a Waffle House and discovers . . . it's pretty darn good. And hellaciously fast, too! Who knew truckers and Southerners could be right about something?
Gentleman defends meetings. Maybe he's right about private-sector meetings, but I question whether he's right about governmental meetings.
I had heard that the rule of thumb was 1/3, but the argument here is it depends on the type of restaurant, which is reasonable, and that the restaurant probably needs to be somewhat below 1/3.
"The Arby's CEO asked 1,000 US employees the same question before his hugely successful brand turnaround"

"Canada's far North is terrified of losing Amazon Prime — and residents say it would be like 'pandemonium'"
Interesting piece. But I'm an enthusiastic Spotify user and I have never encountered the issues mentioned. And I'd bet very few users have. Further, I'm not surprised: by training and experience I expect that after you design the rules for almost any interaction you can bet some folks will try to exploit those rules.
"We visited the regional chain that beat Trader Joe's for the title of best grocery store in America — here's what it's like"
That would be Wegmans and they're coming to Raleigh RSN.
