How To Lose $1B In 10 Seconds – The Hustle
What goes up should come down, and that incorporates Gerald Ratner, who was large and in charge until he wasn’t. This CEO of a previously well-known gems store chain in the UK made some self-expostulating jokes at his – and his company’s – huge cost. Appreciate this calming suggestion to think before you talk or tweet to take with you into the end of the week, and recall that a few things are best left unsaid.

An Iconic San Francisco Landmark Is For Sale For The First Time ever – Architectural Digest
In the market for a high rise? All things considered, on the off chance that you are, the notorious Transamerica Pyramid in midtown San Francisco is available to be purchased and it very well may be yours at the low minimal effort of $600 million. At the point when it was built in 1972, William Pereira’s Brutalist high rise turned into the tallest structure in the city and remained so until a year ago when the Salesforce tower bested it. Transamerica’s CEO is expecting to profit by a solid market by selling the structure and is in any event, going to toss in two additional structures close by as a feature of the arrangement. Get one, get two free? You can’t manage the cost of not to get it now.

Indonesia Will Build Its New Capital City In Borneo As Jakarta Sinks Into The Java Sea – CNN Travel
What do you think about the city (or town) you experienced childhood in? In your childhood, not a ton. You knew the vitals: the best spot to get sweets, your #1 cheap food, and where your closest companions lived. As you developed more seasoned, your eyes are opened to more, similar to when I discovered yesterday that the city I call home is one of the quickest sinking urban communities on Earth. In contrast to Venice, where ocean levels are rising, Jakarta is managing the repercussions of inordinate groundwater extraction and city arranging that was never intended to accommodate the 9.6 million individuals that live there now. Like never before I’m seeing many an article detail the outcomes of overpopulation – this one just hit home. Literally.

A Book-Filled Manhattan Apartment Where Everything Tells a Story – A Cup Of Jo
I like to portray myself as to some degree a moderate. I live in a minuscule studio condo in Brooklyn, and keeping in mind that the way toward moving into that very small space has caused me to value my overall absence of pointless effects, it has simultaneously has uncovered a formerly torpid side of me that evidently pines for comfortably lived-in and indeed, jumbled homes. Half a month prior, Joanna Goddard ( of Cup of Jo ) shared creator David Coggins’ home visit, and it is one space I continue to come back to. Large numbers of you may perceive David as the writer of Men And Style , however past menswear, David’s immaculate inside plan taste converts into a totally unreasonable wreck of layered mats, flooding shelves, and flawlessly patina’d cowhide. There are a verifiable appeal and sensation of home in this condo that I can’t avoid, surrendering me to comfortable to the pit that is eBay on the chase for vintage hand-hitched rugs.
