I can spend all-day referencing the corruption in the fuel & associated industries (EV cars or not).

That corruption is often because of the facts they don't say.

For example, the Renault Zoe 2021 electric #car - Euro NCAP safety rating received zero stars out of five. https://www.euroncap.com/en/results/renault/zoe/44206

And yet, from the reviews I have read, #AutoExpress has not mentioned this relatively poor safety

How to find a co-founder for your #startup #business
I have been asked recently in few places.
Unfortunately Lola (the dog in the picture) is not my cofounder.
In short, it is like a love relationship:
1. Start in your inner circle (friends, colleagues, schoolmates)
2. Then use social media, including Facebook groups and Reddit channel as r/cofounder
3. Use platforms specific for this. I put a list here: https://lnkd.in/eTQ9Nbdy

A letter to Target on their decision to remove LGBTQ+ merchandise from stores.

Emailed to: Corporate.Responsibility@target.com

"As a Target customer, I'm very disappointed with Target's decision to remove "some items from its stores and making other changes to its LGBTQ+ merchandise nationwide ahead of Pride month", per an Associated Press article, https://apnews.com/article/target-pride-lgbtq-4bc9de6339f86748bcb8a453d7b9acf0

As stated in an article by TheHill, "Roughly 80 percent of Americans say they favored laws that would protect LGBTQ+ people against discrimination in employment, public accommodations and housing. Around 41 percent of Americans say they strongly support nondiscrimination protections.", https://thehill.com/changing-america/respect/equality/599240-support-for-lgbtq-rights-on-the-rise-poll/

So, for a hate filled 20% of the population, you've damaged your brand to potentially 80% of the country that supports LGBTQ+ rights. Not a smart marketing move on Target's part.

As a friend of many in the LGBTQ+ community, I strongly suggest that you reverse your decision."

It often occurs to me that hotel room designers are very "special" people.

I'm in a brand-new business hotel in Zagreb, Croatia, which has no power points at the desk in my room.

So I'm now having to cool my heels while I let my iPad charge up significantly above its current 2% charge, so I can go back to the desk and finish my latest Patreon post.

You do have to wonder if hotel room designers have ever actually stayed in a hotel.

One of the biggest lies of #capitalism is that a successful business (in terms of revenue or longevity) must be well-run or deliver a great product.

I have seen so many good businesses fail and watched so many dumpster fires generate millions in annual revenue because of structural advantages that have nothing to do with product quality, customer service, or innovation.

Marketing is not one size fits all.

Stop acting like certain tactics, channels, or approaches will work for everyone.

Stop copying others just because it’s “what everyone does”.

Seems the #DebtCeiling travail is different this time, tho ...

A large portion of the House MAGA caucus prefer the drama and chaos #DebtDefault would precipitate.

Financial markets are currently rating the risk of a U.S. government default as higher than that of Brazil, Greece and Mexico, all of which have defaulted multiple times and have much lower credit ratings.

Macron préfère recevoir avec les honneurs Musk à l'Elysée, un milliardaire qui adopte une rhétorique masculiniste et qui a débloqué les comptes de personnalités néo-nazis, complotistes et homophobes sur Twitter, que les syndicats en France... #Politique #Twitter #Musk #elonmusk #Macron #Elysée #Business #Entreprises
