Best things to do in Guadeloupe

“Most people, they think we’re in f**king Mexico,” my guide laughs over rum punches on my first night in Guadeloupe. “Like we’re gwa-da-LOOP-ay or something.” Such is the struggle of Guadeloupe (pronounced gwa-da-LOOP), the French Caribbean island that sits smack in the middle of the Lesser Antilles near St. Maarten and Dominica. AKA nowhere near Mexico. Though it’s one of the larger Caribbean territories, it somehow gets forgotten in North America’s collective consciousness. Which is a shame...

‘Amazon Effect’ forces traditional stores to find ways to get products straight to customers’ doors

The “Amazon Effect” has conditioned convenience-hungry consumers to become accustomed to doorstep delivery for everything from eggs to electronics — and its upending business models for traditional pay-at-the-counter retailers. The strongest growth in retail is coming from digital channels. Retail ecommerce sales in 2019 are expected to climb 15.1 percent for the year to $605.3 billion, according research firm eMarketer. Not surprising, Amazon is dominating the market. In 2017, Amazon sales jump...

Here are the 85+ startups that launched at YC’s W19 Demo Day 1

Y Combinator’s incubator classes have gotten huge. With over 200 companies, the Winter 2019 class is by far YC’s largest yet. Meanwhile, the incubator prepares to shift its headquarters from Mountain View to San Francisco. It’s so large, in fact, it’s had to change the way it does Demo Day. Rather than all pitches happening on one stage, they were split across two stages (the “Pioneer” and “Mission” stages) running in parallel. So even if you were in the building, you couldn’t see all the pit...

Domestic Science: How to Sweep a Floor, Perfectionist’s Edition

Everybody should know how to sweep a floor. I got into the habit in college when I lived with a half dozen other reprobates in a shambolic wood-frame home on the edge of campus on the low Iowa prairie. Our house was a typical undergraduate hovel, with yellowed linoleum tiles that curled up at the seams and a Sears stove that hadn’t been cleaned since the 1950s. Some kind of rodent lived behind it. One of my roommates, a real freethinker, was the first to take up sweeping. Gradually, it caught on...

Michelle Wie is off the market after boyfriend Jonnie West proposes this weekend in San Francisco

Any on-course disappointment from earlier this month for Michelle Wie was forgotten over the weekend when the LPGA star said “Yes” to boyfriend Jonnie West after he popped the question and asked for her hand in marriage. Wie took to Instagram on Sunday night to make public her engagement to the son of former NBA great Jerry West. The post is light on particulars, although those are the Lyon Street Steps in San Francisco in the background.

Week 14: Relaxing at Stunning Lake Mead, Nevada

This week was all about taking it slow and enjoying the stunning lakeside views and desert landscape from our campsite. I was happy to hear the coyotes howl at night as we sat around the campfire – finally a place we can have one again. Lake Mead RV Village I had time to set up a new homeschooling routine for the girls, catch up on work and exercise. We were able to use this time also to run a few errands – put Kalyra’s broken camera into Best Buy for repair. Thankfully I bought the protecti...

Marketing: Agencies to put on your radar (if they aren’t already)

In this business, it is crucial to make sure you are keeping up with the agencies to market to and get on their radar.  When a former co-worker asked his FB connections, which is largely top creative people, for the top agencies to watch and up and coming agencies, I knew it was a list I wanted to research for my clients.  My clients receive weekly/bi-monthly articles about recently awarded accounts (brands) to an agency.  They also receive articles of importance in this business and a marketing...

BetterUp— a San Francisco-based startup that connects professional coaches with those seeking career advice — has been giving their employees five days off to work on themselves. Dubbed "inner work days," these five days a year are meant to give employees dedicated time for self-reflection.  "Most of the work we do in our life is outside of us," BetterUp co-founder and CEO Alexi Robichaux told Business Insider.

A Juul-sponsored study suggests its e-cigarettes could help adult smokers cut back, but some researchers aren't convinced (MO)

A study paid for by e-cigarette company Juul, which is partially owned by the tobacco giant behind Marlboro cigarettes, suggests the devices may help adult smokers cut back on smoking. The authors of the paper concluded that smokers who started using the Juul significantly curbed their use of traditional burned cigarettes. While some adults switched completely to vaping, others continued to both vape and smoke — a potentially troubling phenomenon called "dual use." The dual users still appeare...

Destroyer: An Under-the-Radar Restaurant Serving Food from the Future

Jordan Kahn, the enfant terrible of LA dining (in a past life, he visually outed an LA Times restaurant critic), has been quietly operating Destroyer, his tiny 16-seat Culver City breakfast and lunch spot, since September 2017. The inspiration for the interiors? “I wanted to create a minimalist space void of superfluousness, a neutral canvas for the food, ceramics, and people,” he says. “Often, the professional kitchen is a space associated with noise and chaos. I wanted to create a more tranqui...

It’s a new era for fertility tech

Women’s health has long been devoid of technological innovation, but when it comes to fertility options, that’s starting to change. Startups in the space are securing hundreds of millions in venture capital investment, a significant increase to the dearth of funding collected in previous years. Fertility entrepreneurs are focused on a growing market: couples are choosing to reproduce later in life, an increasing number of female breadwinners are able to make their own decisions about when and ho...

This Week in Photography Books: Lawrence Schwartzwald

I made a few resolutions last month. I give myself guidelines, each New Year, for things I’d like to work on. (Ways to better myself.) This year, at the top of my list, I’m trying hard to talk less shit about other people. That’s my number one goal. I lost a few friends a couple of years ago, and am pretty sure that gossip-mongering played a role in it. (Not that I take the blame squarely, just that I own my part in it.) On one hand, it makes me value my closest friends even...

This enterprise software startup has VCs literally knocking on its doors to invest, but for now, it's not interested

Notion is an "all-in-one workplace" that acts as a replacement for docs, wikis, task management tools, and databases.  And according to a recent tweet by First Round Capital's Josh Kopelman, Notion is one of the most sought after investments in Silicon Valley.  Ivan Zhao confirmed with Business Insider that he receives multiple calls each day from hopeful venture capitalists, and at Notion's old office, some VCs would literally come knocking on the door.  Zhao says he's not "anti-VC," but when...

Photography and sex in Amos Badertscher’s Baltimore

The Baltimore photographer Amos Badertscher has been cataloguing queer lives in his city since the 1960s: male sex workers and their girlfriends, the 1990s Baltimore and Washington club culture, transgender people, crack and heroin addiction, and the impact of AIDS. His is the largest extant photographic record of the short lives of hustlers (male sex workers) that I know of. Though he could by no means be described as famous, Badertscher enjoyed a brief period of academic notice with the public...

Most Instagrammed places in the US

The more jaded travelers among us might say nobody travels anymore; they just go places to collect content for their Instagrams. Which, for a large segment of the population, is probably true. Such is travel in 2019, where the popularity of both people and places is largely gauged on the ‘gram. While we’re not going to pass judgment on any national park, sandy beach, or mouse-eared theme park based on the number of hashtags it got in 2018, Play Picks is happy to do so.

Former Munchery employees sue company, blame CEO for shutdown

The Munchery saga continues. In a new class-action lawsuit, former Munchery facilities worker Joshua Philips is claiming the startup owes him and 250 other employees 60 days’ wages, citing The Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification Act, a U.S. labor law that requires employers with an excess of 100 employees to give notice 60 days ahead of mass layoffs. Munchery, a prepared meal delivery company headquartered in San Francisco, announced in an email to customers on January 21 that it wo...
