Share to Twitter Share to Linkedin The dining and shopping habits of Millennials have become fairly clear. But now, the food world is looking at the young consumers behind them: Generation Z. Although the exact years are a little fuzzy, many analysts characterize Generation Z as people born between 1995 and 2010, meaning that the oldest members are finding jobs and finishing school. Some are still living at home, others in dorm rooms, but a portion have moved into college apartments or their first places. And those Gen Z members have to cook, or find food from restaurants. Susan Schwaillie, executive director of the NPD Group , is among those tracking the dining habits of Gen Z, which has an estimated $44 billion in buying power. In general, Gen Z members are fiscally conservative and socially liberal, Schwaillie said last week at Camp Bacon, an annual event put on by Zingerman's in Ann Arbor, Michigan. She said there's a big difference … [Read more...] about The Food World’s Next Big Question: What Does Generation Z Want To Eat?

Share to Twitter Share to Linkedin Yes, you can stream AM radio stations on your smartphones and bring them into the car with you. But certainly something is being lost in the fact that automakers now are trending to take AM signals out of electric vehicles because of the engineering problems they cause. In fact, as the EV revolution begins to eliminate the “amplitude modulation” band from new vehicles, it is messing with a free medium that has been important to America’s information and entertainment, cultural identity and even politics, especially in the heartland. Millions of boomers grew up fidgeting with the AM dial in the evening so we could hear the strains of our favorite pop and rock music, broadcast over hundreds of miles by blowtorches such as WJR in Detroit and WGN in Chicago. Their signals get amplified in the ionosphere in the absence of sunlight and face little physical resistance from our basically flat regional topography. Same for … [Read more...] about EV Makers Are Eliminating AM Radio, Infringing On Iconic Medium

Gary Kubiak tried to get out of his own resignation. Over Christmas weekend, when the Broncos were in Kansas City for what would be their playoff elimination game against the Chiefs, Kubiak reached out to general manager John Elway and said he wanted to meet — but as friends. Not as an employee talking with his boss. Kubiak needed his friend because he needed to be honest. “I called and said, ‘Well, let’s do it tomorrow,’” Kubiak recalled. “And he said, ‘No, I’m going up to your room. So we talked.” So, for an evening, they had the hard talk and Kubiak informed Elway of his desire to step down at season’s end and retire from coaching. Helen H. Richardson, The Denver Post Denver Broncos head coach Gary Kubiak gets emotional as he announces that he will step down as head coach for the Denver Broncos at the UC Health Training Center on January 2, 2017 in Englewood, Colorado.

As the Broncos said goodbye to Gary Kubiak on Monday, they began their second head coaching search in two years. Denver general manager John Elway said he has three or four candidates in mind to replace Kubiak and that assistant coaches with playoff teams will be considered. “There’s a lot of young guys out there that have a lot of potential and are very bright guys,” Elway said. “Hopefully we can get one of those.” One of those assistant coaches in the playoffs is Atlanta offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan, whom the Broncos have formally asked and been granted permission to interview. Shanahan, 37, is the son of Mike Shanahan, who led the Broncos to two Super Bowl championships. Kyle Shanahan directed the NFL’s highest scoring offense (33.8 points a game) this season in his second year as the team’s offensive coordinator. He’s helped foster MVP-level play from quarterback Matt Ryan (4,944 passing yards, 38 touchdowns). The Falcons were the only NFL team to rank in the top-five … [Read more...] about Broncos begin head coaching search; will interview Falcons OC Kyle Shanahan
