Tears and rage – the rise of the emotional release industry

When Ariana Grande cried on stage recently, following her performance of an emotionally laden song, she later took to Twitter to apologise and thanked her fans for accepting her humanness. Producing emotional tears is a uniquely human thing and yet, for many, our first reaction to crying is to apologise.Public displays of crying and emotional release, especially of emotions deemed as unattractive like being upset or angry, remain taboo. This is because there are socially accepted rules that gove...

What does ‘regulating Facebook’ mean? Here’s an example

Many officials claim that governments should regulate Facebook and other social platforms, but few describe what it actually means. A few days ago, France released a report that outlines what France — and maybe the European Union — plans to do when it comes to content moderation. It’s an insightful 34-page document with a nuanced take on toxic content and how to deal with it. There are some brand new ideas in the report that are worth exploring. Instead of moderating content directly, the reg...

Kard is a challenger bank for teens

Meet French startup Kard, a challenger bank that works a lot like N26 or Revolut. But Kard is all about convincing teens that their first bank account is going to be a Kard account — a bit like Step in the U.S. When I talked with Kard co-founder and CEO Scott Gordon, he kept saying that Kard was a product for the generation Z. While I’m not a fan of that buzzword, it still looks like a well-designed app with some personality. “Gen Z is a generation that has been forgotten by traditional banks...

Behold, firm evidence — at last — that ultra-processed food causes weight gain

We know we should eat less junk food, such as crisps, industrially made pizzas and sugar-sweetened drinks, because of their high calorie content. These “ultra-processed" foods, as they are now called by nutritionists, are high in sugar and fat, but is that the only reason they cause weight gain? An important new trial from the U.S. National Institute of Health (NIH) shows there's a lot more at work here than calories alone.Studies have already found an association between junk foods and weight g...

Define A Brand Strategy To Build Your Business Value

by Lindsay Pedersen, author of “Forging An Ironclad Brand: A Leader’s Guide“ Strategy has become a word so overused that it’s borderline comical. Remember the SNL skit that satirized George W Bush, when asked to summarize the best argument for his campaign, and he responded, “strategery”? Notwithstanding the mocking mispronunciation of “strategery,” strategy is a word that is easy to say and harder to do. At its most basic, strategy is the encapsulation of how one will achieve a given aim. It i...
