Why all the fuss about another royal baby? History has taught us there’s much money to be made in a celebrity tot. And if the public’s fixation is any indicator, we can expect quite the “baby Sussex” effect. Meghan Markle, 37, and husband Prince Harry, 34–the celebrity duo also known as the Duke and Duchess of Sussex–welcomed their first child on Monday. Up until now, the couple had been quite private about the pregnancy, keeping mum about the due date, gender, and even where Markle might give birth. “We are pleased to announce that Their Royal Highnesses The Duke and Duchess of Sussex welcomed their firstborn child in the early morning on May 6th, 2019. Their Royal Highnesses’ son weighs 7lbs. 3oz,” read the new parents’ official Instagram account. “The Duchess and baby are both healthy and well, and the couple thank members of the public for their shared excitement and support during this very special time in their … [Read more...] about The royal baby … by the numbers

By now, you’ve probably seen some of the stats about how the apparel industry is wreaking havoc on our planet. As a fashion writer, I read through these figures every day, and they are staggering to me. McKinsey reported the world tipped over into manufacturing 100 billion articles of clothing annually in 2014. (Consider that there are only 7 billion humans that inhabit the Earth.) The Ellen MacArthur Foundation, a sustainability nonprofit, says that the average number of times that a garment is worn before it stops being used has gone down by 36% over the last 15 years, and many consumers wear items less than 10 times before they chuck them out. advertisement advertisement This means that all of the pollution generated from sourcing raw materials, manufacturing them into garments, and transporting them around the world results in pieces of clothing that someone might only wear a couple of times. At that point, the wearer might throw it out to make room for … [Read more...] about Madewell, Patagonia, and Eileen Fisher want to buy your old clothes

A newly minted Syracuse University graduate, wanting to prove to prospective employers how clever I was, I packaged four résumés to my the top employers on my list, each with a brand-new shoe. As my cover letter explained, I wanted to get a foot in the door. advertisement advertisement It was a tired stunt even back when you sent paper résumés to employers. And it didn’t yield the results I wanted. But, apparently, others have had better luck. In a recent survey by job search engine SimplyHired, 13% of applicants used an unusual strategy like a stunt or gimmick during the job application process—and 70% of them got the job they wanted. More than 55% said the effort was received positively. What did they do? Respondents said they: Sent a miniature Lego sculpture of himself (hired) Wore a company uniform to the interview (not hired) Created a QR code link to lessons taught and turned her résumé into … [Read more...] about Should you try a wacky job application strategy?
Imagine that you’re the governor of Pennsylvania or Vermont, and you’re trying to figure out how to help your state cope with the impact of automation. What policies do you pursue first to ensure that people can succeed as the job market is rapidly remade? advertisement advertisement Actually, that’s a trick question. As a new study from Walmart makes clear, every state requires multiple sets of strategies, each one tailored to fit a particular “community archetype.” In fact, of the eight archetypes that the report identifies, Pennsylvania has seven of them within its borders. Even Vermont, with a total population just north of 600,000, contains four archetypes. On average, each state has five. “It really highlights the need for local solutions,” says Kathleen McLaughlin, the chief sustainability officer at Walmart, which will release the analysis today at the Bentonville Conference on American Life. Drawing on research from the … [Read more...] about New study shows what your community needs to do to survive the impact of automation
