Running Through the Ups and Downs - Repost

(Original post March 2012. Still 100% relevant)  The last couple weeks I stumbled upon a certain realization about running, maybe even about life. Whether you are a runner or not, take heart, because you might see some parallels in your own world.There are days when I feel invincible. The miles, the hours, the hills I put in week after week, make me feel strong. They build me up, encourage me to push the envelope a little further. They give me the confidence to reach a little higher.And there...

Alphabet's drone delivery company just received FAA approval to start dropping packages on customer's front doorsteps in Virginia (GOOG, GOOGL)

Wing, the aerial-delivery venture spun out of Google, has become the first US drone operator to receive federal clearance as an airline.  That means Wing can start legally dropping packages on people's front doorsteps in the states.  Wing says it will begin testing services in two southwestern Virginia towns and hopes to launch there by later this year.  In Australia — where the company has been testing since 2014 — Wing drones deliver everything from burritos to coffees to over-the-counter me...


You can now take your Amazon returns to all Kohl’s stores

It’s one thing to be able to get everything delivered to your doorstep, it’s another to then have to actually have to leave your home, brace the elements and return those things that just didn’t work out (or work at all). Typically, that means a run to your local FedEx or UPS store. For the last two years, Amazon and department store chain Kohl’s had a limited partnership that allowed you to bring your return to 100 Kohl’s stores across the country. Today, the two companies announced that ...

Clever Tool Design, Bold Entrepreneurship: The Story of the American-Made LogOX

It takes design skills, patience, research, networking and a whole lot of hard work.Meet the Roberts family. They're three members of that tiny proportion.

Amazon demands selfies from delivery drivers to combat fraud (AMZN)

Amazon is requiring delivery drivers to snap selfies to verify their identities. The selfies are meant to protect drivers from unauthorized usage of their Amazon Flex accounts, an Amazon spokeswoman said. The photos could prevent people — some of whom may not have undergone background checks or be authorized to work for Amazon — from delivering packages under accounts that don't belong to them. Amazon recently asked drivers to consent to the collection and storage of their biometric data.  Am...

Porch Pirates

Evidently, it's a thing out here in a rural area as much as it may be in urban/suburban areas. I never used to lock my car at home before I was talking to the resident trooper and he mentioned there have been quite a few thefts out of cars at night in the area. So the cars and the truck are locked all the time now. He also mentioned a few reported thefts of packages left on porches. When the UPS guy delivers to our house, he puts them on our back porch inside the screen door. But those lazy Fed...

Trying To Find Affordable Child Care Is Not The Job I Wanted

In the past month, I’ve spent close to 60 hours trying to secure child care for my two-year-old son. This is not the kind of job I ever wanted. It’s a high-stakes, unpaid position that often leaves me quite literally with a bellyache. But as the keeper of the family calendar and bank account and the mother who works from home, this task inevitably falls on me.I would generally describe my partner as supportive, but he has done very little to help with this process, balking the one time I asked ...

UPS driver takes pictures with dogs

We tend to think that mail people and delivery drivers have a hard time dealing with dogs on the job, but it seems that we got it quite wrong. This UPS driver in Louisiana is proof that their daily routine is not filled with barks and barred teeth. To make sure we get the message, Jay takes pictures with the dogs on his route and posts them on Instagram with his own hashtag: #pupsofjay.
