There are many things that will never change when it comes to human relations and how we react to authority and leadership. Still, in a fast paced world, it’s hugely important for companies to keep up with modern leadership styles. It is for this reason that, on average, businesses spend $1,228 per employee on leadership and development training. In fact, U.S. companies spent $12 billion dollars during the 2009 recession to train executives to lead in this new era of business.

It takes a lot to get an app off the ground, let alone reach the Level of Angry Birds. Luckily there is a process to making it work, the best practices to achieve maximum exposure for your app.Among the pit of a half a million Android apps, yours can easily get lost with the ebb and the flow of the 100 that get added to the market everyday
Our love affair with apps is steadily growing as apps are being made for anything and everything. Need to find the closest sweater store? There’s an app for that. Duck out of the eyeline of an ex? There is an app for that. It;s come to a point where we’ll give anything a chance, but just one. First and foremost, make a good first impression, make sure it works (obviously) without any crashes, and even consider to pay extra to be preloaded onto a device. Think globally; American’s aren’t the only ones who love launching birds into pigs’ ramshackle hostage houses, so don’t put all your eggs in that basket (pun intended).
And remember, if you work hard and create a worthwhile app, the masses will follow. Keep it updated, and keep improving. Happy apping, everyone.

Today’s men are opting for jobs in non-traditional fields such as nursing, teaching and social work. These jobs are traditionally predominately female occupied and thus referred to as ‘pink collar’ jobs. The number of men who have entered these fields has doubled from ten years ago. In past years, men who held pink collar positions were generally minorities with a low level of education. Today, however, college educated, white males between the ages of twenty-five and thirty-nine are intentionally seeking out these jobs. The gradual erosion of stereotypes and the retiring baby boomers are just a couple of reasons for this shift. Check out the infographic from WorkBoots below for more information.

After hurricane Sandy devastated most of the east coast, New Jersey Governor Chris Christy, made the following statement: “During emergencies, New Jerseyans should look out for each other, not seek to take advantage of each other”. With more than 600 reports of price gouging after the storm, it sure seems like people were being taken advantage of in their time of need. Many economists, however, would argue that there is actually a need for price gouging. This infographic, presented by Best Criminal Justice, breaks down the numbers and the logic behind price gouging. Check it out below:
