Starting and running a company is not a marathon or a sprint. It is a decathlon. Sometimes you have to sprint. Sometimes you have to pace yourself. Sometimes you have to throw the javelin. Sometimes it’s heavy lifting like the shot put.

If you are health conscious, the Glycemic index is definitely of interest to you. The Glycemic index ranks carbohydrates based on how quickly they convert to glucose in the human body. This is important because carbs that increase blood levels quickly, also increase insulin levels quickly, which carries serious consequences for those with diabetes.
Studies show that nuts rank low on the Glycemic index and are good for people trying to monitor their cholesterol, and are the perfect snack because they keep you full for longer. Almonds are especially championed for their ability to lower your cholesterol. The Diabetes Monitor points out that although nuts are mostly fat, they are incredibly helpful in maintaining a healthy lifestyle.

Samer Makhlouf, director of OneVoice Palestine just shared a very hopeful bit of information with me, in the form of a survey. The survey, found on Maan Network asked the following:
The Palestinian society is capable of changing the Israeli political map through:
1. explaining the suffering under occupation to Israelis
2. non-violent resistance
3. intensifying meetings of Palestinians figures with Israeli media
Two good indicators here are that Palestinians acknowledge the importance of addressing Israeli society, and that more than 80% believe in non-violence as a mean to end the conflict.

My brother shared this hilarious video, which while mocking the obsession of people with Apple products, actually highlights the power of brands.
Apple does actually have a lot of technological reasons for its success. But its brand indeed transcends much of the functional strengths to the iconic sphere and status symbol.
Then again, there is another side to this debate which says the iPhone really IS better:
It is incredibly saddening and disappointing to see the intolerance that is terrorizing civilians in the Netherlands today. This article in the Brussels Journal introduces the term “Decoy Jew,” or policemen dressed in traditional Jewish garb who are looking to arrest attackers who accost them, assuming they are Jews. It is horrible that Jews are still encountering this needless hatred and bias and a sad fact that these “Decoy Jews” need exist.
