 A number of bed-in-a-box startups have taken different approaches to selling their mattresses and bed ware in the last year. Casper and Tuft and Needle, for instance, launched their own branded physical store locations. However, Purple, a mattress startup out of Utah that recently merged with a New York shell company, took a different approach, instead striking a distribution deal with… Read More

Facebook Julie Zhuo Day in the Life

  • Business Insider interviewed Facebook's vice president of product design, Julie Zhuo, about how she spends her days at the tech company.
  • She broke down her daily routine from her early-morning workout to spending time with her family in the evening.
  • Zhuo also discussed the strategies she uses to get her work done and live a balanced life.


For Facebook's vice president of product design, Julie Zhuo, intentionality is key.

That's reflected in her daily routine.

Zhuo has worked at Facebook for over 11 years, having joined a team of only about 100 employees. She's worked on products like Facebook's News Feed, the "like" button, and user profiles. Now she oversees the design of many of Facebook's core user experiences — and a team of more than 250 employees.

"Facebook is a very mission-oriented place," she told Business Insider. "Most of the people that work here really care about building community and making tools that help bring people closer together. That's a huge part of why I've been here for so long and I think many of the people I work with are here."

Zhuo recently chronicled her daily schedule, habits, and strategies for Business Insider — here's what a day in the life of one Facebook exec looks like:

On weekdays, Zhuo wakes up around 7 a.m. To kick off her day, she works out on an elliptical for about 10 minutes, then showers. The Facebook exec often runs while listening to a TED Talk, an audiobook, or music. "I like the idea of starting the day having accomplished something, even if it's very small," she said. Zhuo says she also starts thinking about her schedule and daily tasks first thing in the morning.


Zhuo's husband, Mike Sego, Facebook's engineering director, prepares breakfast for the family — that's usually eggs and coffee for Sego and Zhuo, and milk and snacks for their two young children. They get the kids dressed, and their nanny picks them up at 8:30 a.m.


Zhuo and Sego are at the office by 9 a.m., and she tries to take some time to plan for her meetings. "I try to be very intentional about my time," she said. "It's easy to get into the habit of reacting to what's happening during the day."

McDonald's Tenders

  • At 1 a.m. on Friday, McDonald's posted a bizarre tweet. 
  • It quickly went viral. 
  • The fast-food chain finally posted a follow-up tweet on Friday morning, blaming the confusing tweet on a lack of coffee. 


McDonald's posted a tweet at 1 a.m. on Friday morning that had many customers scratching their heads. 

The tweet, from McDonald's corporate account, reads: "Black Friday **** Need copy and link****" 

McD Black Friday

Presumably, McDonald's social media manager had set up a Black Friday tweet — but forgotten to actually include the necessary information. 

The tweet went viral, with more than 10,000 retweets and 22,000 likes as of Friday at 10 a.m.

On Friday morning, Wendy's took the opportunity to shoot back at the rival fast food chain. 

Screen Shot 2017 11 24 at 12.12.00 PM

Wendy's tweeted: "When the tweets are as broken as the ice cream machine." 

McDonald's ice cream machines are infamous for frequently breaking down. While the company has identified replacement machines, as of November, it hadn't yet rolled them out in restaurants.

 

Mcd

McDonald's acknowledged its late-night tweet at 9:48 a.m., with a follow-up tweet reading: "When you tweet before your first cup of McCafé… Nothing comes before coffee."

La app de INE, una muestra de la “democracia” mexicana

Más que una herramienta que permita la participación ciudadana, la aplicación representa un obstáculo para el ejercicio democrático en México.

México tendrá un nuevo presidente en el 2018 y, por primera vez, son 48 los aspirantes que han levantado la mano para postularse al puesto más elevado del país por la vía independiente. Para ello, el In… Seguir leyendo...

2017 Volvo V90

  • The V90 is an excellent alternative to an SUV.
  • It comes with a high price tag, but for the most part, it's worth it.
  • A test drive could make a wagon-lover out of even the most committed wagon-hater.


Americans hate station wagons. Well, most Americans. The one who don't hate them love station wagons and have traditionally loved Volvo station wagons very, very much.

For those consumers who don't want a large SUV — and don't worry, Volvo has plenty of those — the Swedish automaker, now owned by China's Geely, has the V90.

We spent a week in what was once prime station-wagon country — the New Jersey suburbs — but is now SUV central. Volvo loaned us a well-equipped, $64,640 (optioned up from $55,000) V90 Cross Country T6 with all-wheel-drive.

Did it live up to its lofty wagony reputation? Read on.

FOLLOW US: on Facebook for more car and transportation content!

The V90 might be the best-looking wagon Volvo has ever made. Sure, fans of the classic 240 wagons of yesteryear can disagree. But this vehicle is sharp.


It's also pretty big. There's ample room for five people in there. The color of our tester was "Osmium Grey Metallic."

For the record, the Cross Country trim raises the ride height a few inches, providing slightly better offroad and foul-weather ground clearance.


The more I look at this generation of Volvo front ends, the more In think they're among the coolest on the car business.

Sara Blakely Jesse Itzler

• Spanx founder Sara Blakely and Marquis Jets founder Jesse Itzler first met at a charity poker tournament in 2006.

• Itzler set up an elaborate scavenger hunt when it came time to propose to his now-wife.

• Today, they have four children and chronicle their family's adventures on social media.



When Sara Blakely arrived at the 2006 Net Jet Annual Las Vegas Poker Tournament, she didn't know much about poker.

Still, one of her sales representatives wrangled her a seat at the main table with Jesse Itzler. He was the cofounder of private jet company Marquis Jets, which was later acquired by Berkshire Hathaway's NetJets in 2010, Reuters reported. Blakely was a customer of his — she had a major phobia of heights and the New Yorker reported she figured "she could order the pilot to land" if she panicked while leasing a flight.

As it turned out, he didn't know much about poker either.

The pair bonded over their lack of knowledge of the game, and a friendship blossomed, according to Atlanta Weddings.

Blakely continued to hold Itzler's attention when she announced she was heading to bed early. "Who goes to bed at 9:30 at night in Vegas?" he told Success.com. "That intrigued me. And she loved to laugh, and that intrigued me, too."

Today, Blakely and Itzler have four children and co-own the Atlanta Hawks basketball team with several other individuals, AJC.com reported. Blakely is worth $1.21 billion, according to Forbes.

Here's a look at their nine-year marriage:

After they first met, Blakely and Itzler emailed back and forth for about seven months. Ultimately, they began to date. Atlanta Weddings reported Itzler would often tell Blakely, "I could marry you," and she would respond, "Bring it."

After a year, Itzler kicked off his proposal outside their New York City residence with a gold band engraved with the words "BRING IT!!" In an ensuing scavenger hunt, Blakely collected seven hidden presents — including three more rings, one engraved with "Jesse Hearts Sara" — in their apartment

The couple tied the knot in 2008 at Gasparilla Inn and Club in Boca Grande, Florida. Itzler's father officiated the ceremony, 450 guests attended the festivities, and Blakely wore her grandmother's restored 1918 wedding gown.

Estados Unidos está pasando por una situación compleja en la que está en juego el futuro del uso del Internet en ese país, y en últimas del resto del mundo. ¿Qué está pasando? La mayoría del país quiere que el Internet siga siendo un lugar libre y equitativo, y continuar con las reglas de neutralidad en la red, como un ‘ángel guardián’ contra el abuso de poder de las corporaciones.
