 This New York Project Fuses Energy Microgrids With Blockchain Technology
A microgrid using TransActive Grid's model could let you directly sell energy generated from your rooftop solar panels to your neighbor.If in the future you find yourself selling your excess solar panel energy to your neighbor via secure blockchain, you'll have one startup's actions on President Street in Brooklyn to thank. That's where experimental microgrid provider TransActive Grid has posted its first two TransActive Grid Element meters inside residential units so that residents can exchange energy via a nascent blockchain marketplace. They've already made it a reality: Early last month, two Brooklyn residents completed the first peer-to-peer energy exchange, swapping watts for U.S. dollars.Read Full Story

 4 Ways To Finish Team Projects Successfully And On Time, Every Time
Hint: There's such a thing as over-brainstorming.Back in 2004, PricewaterhouseCoopers reviewed 10,640 projects from 200 companies in 30 countries across a range of industries, and found that only 2.5% of those companies completed 100% of their projects. For anyone with a job, that may not be too surprising—projects get delayed and derailed all the time. But the costs can pile up. By one measure, organizations lose $109 million for every $1 billion invested in projects and programs.Read Full Story

 This New Tool Wants To Make The Off-Price Clothing Business Easier
Negotiating sales of excess inventory into the "off-price" market hadn't changed since the Excel spreadsheet came out.In the apparel world, the term "off-price" is used for excess inventory in fashion outlets and other lower-price retail stores. Brands sell their excess inventory to buyers, negotiating discounts and conditions that make the off-price market complex. But the last real innovation to keep track of those negotiations was the humble Excel spreadsheet, introduced decades ago. Startup INTURN released a cloud-based SaaS solution in April 2015 to bring the off-price apparel market into the 21st century, and with a $9.7 million fundraising round back in January, INTURN is set to keep growing.Read Full Story

It might even encourage creative thinking, make you more focused, and keep you sharp as you get older. And it's always booted up to the right app for taking notes. To pull out a thoughtfully chosen notebook and a nice pen conveys that the owner is classy and undistracted by whim.Read Full Story
