Le2qtvnh1vnoluhj53pl
Welcome to Reading List, a breakdown of some wonderfully constructed words, phrases, and sentences you should really be reading this week. Before you get too excited, take a second to take a peek over all our exhaustive (seriously I'm still recovering) coverage of CES 2015. But when you get a gadget overload, take a look at some of these great reads from around the web. Many smart minds, including Elon Musk (remember Hyperloop?), have been worried that California's high-speed rail initiative will be woefully out of date once it's eventually finished. But Salon argues that the ambitious project to lessen our dependence on highway travel is an ... Read More →

Here are three new vehicles being unveiled by manufacturers at CES that will be available later this year. GenZe This electric scooter was created after thorough market research with millennials and urban commuters.

The Rapidly Disappearing Business of Design
Design decline 660x595
By almost every measure, 2014 was a breakthrough year for design and big business. Any list of highlights would include John Maeda joining the ranks of Kleiner Perkins as a partner, Jony Ive re-asserting Apple’s product vision and IBM rapidly building the largest design team on the planet. Beyond all of the hype, we can measure the rise of design in terms of dollars invested by major corporations in design talent. In 2014, design went to the bank! The recent departure of Todd Simmons—the top creative at arguably the most celebrated brand agency in the world, Wolff Olins—for the leadership team at IBM is a fitting bookend to the year. So, you ... Read More →

Foldable Electric Bike Upgrades Commuting
Impossible bike kickstarter
Neither folding bikes nor electrical bikes are anything new, but the “Impossible” bike brings something unique to the table by offering both. The bike weighs 11 pounds and folds up to 17-inches tall — small enough to fit in most backpacks and light enough to carry easily. Key to the design is its brushless electric motor. A brushed motor works by spinning the turbine between poles of a magnet. This means swapping the polarity (which is positive and which is negative) by means of a moving brush, which requires more weight, size and moving parts. A brushless motor puts the magnet on the rotor itself and rotates it by charging electromagnets on t ... Read More →

8 Ways Rookie CEOs Can Succeed Faster

Related Content 8 Ways Rookie CEOs Can Succeed Faster According to an article in The Wall Street Journal citing research from Strategy& (formerly Booz & Co.), about 76 percent of top CEOs departing for any reason last year were rookies, up from 58 percent in 2011. Why do so many rookie CEOs fail? I believe the biggest reason is that the CEO role is 180 degrees different than any other executive role. A CFO or vice president of sales, for example, has deep expertise in his or her functional area and is used to being the master of his or her domain. A rookie CEO is confronted with an array of issues in areas in which he or she has no expertise. ... Read More →
