Sitting is killing us. Or wait, maybe it’s standing. Yes, standing can be unhealthy, too. That’s according to the designers of the “chairless chair,” a half-stand, half-sit piece of furniture that will make life less terrible for workers who carry out long shifts on their feet. By taking weight off the joints and lower back, Swiss industrial design house Noonee contends that the chairless chair will decrease fatigue and increase productivity.
I’m scheduled to shoot pre-lims and semis at Lucas Oil. I’m currently traveling with PC. They will arrive late to pre-lims and I’ll miss several of the Open Class corps. I just need floor space (have air mattress), and a ride to Lucas before the show starts on Thursday. In return,…
There are plenty of notoriously mean bosses out there that get results, but are their attitudes hurting the business in the long haul?
Silicon Valley may be the heart of the bustling tech scene, but that doesn’t mean everyone in the industry knows how to code.
No longer do nontechnical techies have to feel like frauds. Hustle Con is a conference specifically for founders without coding abilities. Taking place at San Francisco’s Bravo Theater, the sold-out event aims to help companies build their brands, make money, grow, and—yes—hustle.
We don’t expect this to be your usual tech conference. Panels include “People Buy You,” “Brand Lovegasm,” and “This S**t Is Hard.” In lieu of technical jargon, there’ll definitely be a litany of buzzwords flying back and forth (here’s one for starters: “wantrepreneur”).
Fast Company’s Alice Truong will be blogging the event, which kicks off today at 9:10 a.m. PT.
#TBT to Rome, NY 2010. 4 years ago members of Pacific Crest cordially played the corps song, Ave Maria, for Mrs. Joseph.
"…While in New York, us baritones and euphoniums were walking back to the busses after performing a show, when we saw an adorable elderly lady standing on her front porch. She was watching all of us walk by in our sections, and had the biggest smile on her face.
We were going to go play Ave for the families that had so graciously allowed us to warm up on their front lawns, and got the genius idea to invite the elderly lady to come hear us as well! Our section leader Ryan ran over to her and invited her to come and listen, and learned that she had been around drum corps and had volunteered and helped out with the sport since she was much younger, but was now too old and frail to come down the street to listen to us play…
So, we got another genius idea… why not bring the corps to her… and play Ave Maria especially for her?
The Rome, NY show may have been cancelled yesterday, but the members of the corps did have the opportunity to see Mrs. Joseph!
