Ivon Prefontaine, PhD's curator insight, May 25, 2013 11:25 AM

Building brands is a lot like leaving legacies. What does it mean? Do we have the luxury of thinking we have that much control or will there be features that allow us to be dishonest with brand building?

Deanya Lattimore Schempp's curator insight, May 28, 2013 9:57 AM

Boy are these kids going to be mad at their parents by the time they're 20-somethings...  "Why didn't you protect us?"  they will ask.  "Because we didn't know better," their parents will say. 

 

Putting a kid on the internet without knowing anything about how cookies and cache and logins and TOSs work is like handing them a handgun or putting them behind the wheel of a running car and then leaving.

How the Anxiety Epidemic in the Workplace is Ruining your Health | Parenting | Scoop.it

 

While there are a host of factors that attribute to anxiety, our work culture plays a big role. It’s where people spend most of their waking hours; and how we process our work lives has a dramatic affect on our well being.

“Surveys show that stress levels [in the US] have progressively increased over the past four decades,” Paul J. Rosch, MD, Chairman of the Board of The American Institute of Stress, told the Atlantic’s Maura Kelly.

 

Technology is a huge part of this trend, as it’s completely transformed how we live and work. We’re now connected 24/7, and the rapid pace of innovation means that almost any industry is constantly on the verge of being disrupted.
