State of the Union quote of night:

Today, women make up about half our workforce. But they still make 77 cents for every dollar a man earns. That is wrong, and in 2014, it’s an embarrassment. A woman deserves equal pay for equal work. She deserves to have a baby without sacrificing her  job. A mother deserves a day off to care for a sick child or sick parent without running into hardship – and you know what, a father does, too. It’s time to do away with workplace policies that belong in a “Mad Men” episode. This year, let’s all come together – Congress, the White House, and businesses from Wall Street to Main Street – to give every woman the opportunity she deserves. Because I firmly believe when women succeed, America succeeds.


He might be onto something here…

The Internet of Soda: Why Coca-Cola Has Stockpiled 16 Million Network IDs


Ever used one of those Burger King soda fountains that lets you create your own drink? It’s actually the brainchild of the Coca-Cola company, and it’s connected to the internet.
They’re known as Freestyle machines. You’ll find more than 2,000 of them inside the world’s Burger Kings, and many other restaurants and movie theaters throughout the United States and the United Kingdom have them as well. They’re all connected to the internet, so that Coca-Cola can track what drinks people are making and how often.
That’s one reason Coca-Cola now owns 16 million unique network identifiers usually reserved for Wi-Fi cards and other networking equipment.

Whoa… Very innovative for a CPG company!

"Half as many children died in 2012 as in 1990..."

Bill Gates:

Child mortality went down—again. One of the yearly reports I keep an eye out for is “Levels and Trends in Child Mortality.” The title doesn’t sound especially uplifting, but the 2013 report shows amazing progress—for example, half as many children died in 2012 as in 1990. That’s the biggest decline ever recorded. And hardly anyone knows about it!

Any way you slice it, that’s insanely good news. The poverty rate numbers are pretty striking as well.

Amazing!
