7 Days. 7 Highlights.
Happy (almost) Weekend! As I'm wrapping up this weeks edition of 7 Days. 7 Highlights. I'm snacking on a Kit's Organic Fruit & Nut Bar by Clif Bar (the Dark Chocolate and Peanut version). I highly recommend trying one - they're delicious!
Here's some things from this past week that you may have missed and some things that I've discovered too. Enjoy - and keep on learning!
- "Up until the Renaissance, the most well-known people in the world were mostly politicians and religious figures." That's no longer the case. Here's the evidence.
- Wifi is amazing, but it can drain our electronics battery life. That's why "passive wifi" could drastically change the future of the Internet and electronics.
- Work for a nonprofit like me? Do you guys have a Twitter page? Here's some tips to help you use Twitter effectively.
- "Deum Diligite Animalia Diligentes" ("Honoring God by honoring His creatures.") is the catchphrase for the super secret society known as the International Order of St. Hubertus. Here's what we know about them and what they have been up to recently.
- Email is complicated. It can be really helpful (if you use it well) or it can be extremely frustrating. Here's some advice on how to get a higher response rate on emails from a great email app called Boomerang (check it out here).
- Seth Godin is known for succinct tidbits of wisdom. Here's one of his posts from this week on creativity and work.
- And finally, here's a story of a rather unlikely friendship between the wives of Jefferson Davis and Ulysses Grant.
I hope you have a great weekend, and thanks for checking out this week's post on what I've been learning about over the last 7 days!
