This CEO believes it’s time to embrace idealogical diversity and AI can help

{ object.primary_image.title }}

The CEO of Phenom believes that AI can help focus on candidates’ skills and experience as politics continues to drive national dialogues. Open discussion of political preferences is no longer taboo. These viewpoints inundate social feeds, infiltrate the dinner table, and are more visible in the workplace than ever. In fact, during the 2016 U.S. election, General Mills started the Courageous Conversation series featuring a keynote speech and breakout sessions centered around tough topics. The event continues five years later, having increased participation from 30 participants to as many as 3,000 employees. Read Full Story

Schools are closed, but they’re scrambling to find ways to get food to students in need anyway

{ object.primary_image.title }}

30 million American children rely on schools for lunch. With schools closed, many are still offering food. Millions of students are now out of school because of the coronavirus crisis—and may be home for the rest of the school year. For many students, that also means that it could be harder to eat: 30 million American children rely on free or reduced-price lunches, and some also eat free breakfast and dinner at school. It’s one reason that some cities resisted closing schools earlier. As of March 18, 39 states have closed schools. Read Full Story

This (free!) parenting class from Yale will help you eliminate friction in your house

{ object.primary_image.title }}

Aimed at parents of toddlers and teens alike, this class is full of tips to make life a little easier at home. It couldn’t have come at a better time.

Many parents, meanwhile, have found themselves juggling work, childcare, and remote education responsibilities all at the same time. It certainly hasn’t made for easy familial relationships.

5 ways to design a better mental health future for a stressed-out workforce

{ object.primary_image.title }}

Almost 41% of Americans struggle with mental health issues stemming from the pandemic, but many companies remain ill-equipped to address the problem, says this McKinsey executive. Despite growing up in a family of therapists, the past eight months have revealed to me how difficult it can be to find the “right thing” to say to family, friends, and colleagues who are suffering. Even business emails seem to have taken on new weight: Many have struggled writing the phrase “Hope you are well” knowing that many of us are not, in fact, well. Read Full Story

What I Found After Experimenting with Google Discover for Two Months

{ object.primary_image.title }}

Posted by Moberstein I’m completely fascinated by Google’s Discover Feed. Besides the fact that it serves highly-relevant content, it also seems beyond the reach of being gamed. In a way, it almost seems beyond the reach of pure SEO (which makes it downright tantalizing to me). It all made me want to understand what makes the feed tick. So I did what any sensible person would do. I spent the better part of two months running all sorts of queries in all sorts of different ways to see how it impacted my Discover Feed. Here are my ramblings. My approach to analyzing Google’s Discover Feed Let me explain what I did and how I did it, to both give you a better understanding of this analysis and point out its gaping limitations.
