"Here's How Pop Stars Make Money Now That People Don't Buy Music"

Including one revenue stream you might not have thought of.

"The Invention of the Chilean Sea Bass"

I'm skeptical of the economics (toward the end), but the history is interesting.

From the same website see also "The McDonalds Monopoly Fraud".

"These Are The Only 3 Interview Questions You Need To Prepare For"

Makes sense to me

"No Taxes If Sterling Is Forced to Sell"

Two points about this:

1. Notice the fine legal draftsmanship: "Sterling could purchase other types of assets and argue that they are “similar or related in service or use” to him. Since the statute doesn’t actually define 'similar' or 'related,' . . ."
 
2. I would think this increases the chances he'll fight the sale. Wouldn't that be excellent evidence that the sale is "involuntary"?

"Bill Russell: Working with Red Auerbach"

A whole lot of wisdom about leadership and management in just a bit over six minutes. (And there's Bill Russell's laugh, one of the happiest sounds on the planet.)

"13 Reasons Why H-E-B Is The Best Grocery Store In America"

I think a lot of grocery retailing aficionados would reserve "best" for Wegmans. (The May Consumer Reports does.)

But I've read a lot of good things about H-E-B (formerly HE Butt). What say you, Texans?

UPDATE: A couple days after this ran, Business Insider posted "17 Reasons Why Wegmans Is America's Best Grocery Store".

17-13, Wegmans wins.
