Understanding Customer Churn and How to Prevent It [Infographic]

Philip Kotler is one of the best marketing minds the world has ever seen. In one of his books, Kotler had suggested that the average company looses anywhere between 10 to 30 percent of customers each year.

Is Naming Your Garden Pretentious?

Ever ready to object when I hear the word ‘pretentious’ used to condemn something that might warrant a deeper conversation and a bottle of wine, I have recently found myself defending the practice of naming one’s garden to [apparently] less pretentious gardening friends; and I thought that it might be worth throwing out the topic to a larger audience. I originally brought up the issue after watching a video posted by horticulturist and fellow tropical enthusiast Irvin Etienne, who with an iPhone...

Cough-scrutinizing AI shows major promise as an early warning system for COVID-19

Asymptomatic spread of COVID-19 is a huge contributor to the pandemic, but of course if there are no symptoms, how can anyone tell they should isolate or get a test?
