You can't Attend a Business Meeting Without the Right Shirt

You can't Attend a Business Meeting Without the Right Shirt | Hawaii Science and Technology Digest | Scoop.it
Tips on how to dress for a business meeting. Yes, you need that perfect shirt, seriously!

Via THE *OFFICIAL ANDREASCY*
Russell R. Roberts, Jr.'s insight:
The old saying is true:  clothes make the man (or a woman), especially in a professional business setting.  Here are some great tips to help you overcome the "dress code" hurdle in the business world. Living in Hawaii has one advantage, though. Many businesses in the 50th state have "Aloha Friday", which allows colorful Hawaiian print shirts and muu-muus to be worn on Fridays.  That attire is especially welcome in Hawaii, where humidity and heat combine to make any office uncomfortable.

Farid Mheir's curator insight, May 16, 9:22 PM

Combine high-frequency lawyers with block chain technology and you could really have an impact on the supply chain of most organizations. Say a grocer is buying tomatoes or strawberries. Contracts are drawn months in advance setting prices based on quality of products and delivery efficiency. I assume that something like this would allow for terms of the contract to be renegotiated in real-time to reflect how good - or bad - the products and services are. Who will be the first to jump on this? Walmart? Kroger? Costco? Procter and Gamble?

Your words may predict your future mental health

Your words may predict your future mental health | Hawaii Science and Technology Digest | Scoop.it
Can the way you speak and write today predict your future mental state, even the onset of psychosis? In this fascinating talk, neuroscientist Mariano Sigman reflects on ancient Greece and the origins of introspection to investigate how our words hint at our inner lives and details a word-mapping algorithm that could predict the development of schizophrenia. "We may be seeing in the future a very different form of mental health," Sigman says, "based on objective, quantitative and automated analysis of the words we write, of the words we say."
Russell R. Roberts, Jr.'s insight:
Another valuable set of ideas from neurological science. Our words can unlock our deepest fears and, yet, can help us recreate a new life. Words can also be powerful diagnostic tools in the area of mental health.

This amazing neural mechanism allows us to transmit brain patterns, sharing memories and knowledge. "We can communicate because we have a common code that presents meaning," Hasson says.
