It doesn’t matter whether you own a 200mph-plus supercar or one of the latest breed of SUVs that’s more capable off-road than you might imagine, there are plenty of ways to get to know your vehicle better. Ones that challenge your limits and provide hours of pleasure, with expert tuition and a safe environment thrown in. What’s more, you don’t even have to own one of the aforementioned vehicles to join in the fun - and perhaps even learn a lot about yourself in the process. And it’s not necessarily expensive, either. One of the latest to join the burgeoning market for marque “experiences” is McLaren, which offers a calendar of events that encompasses some of the world’s most famous, and demanding, race circuits. It’s not all about going as fast as possible in circles, however; on the lifestyle side there’s the opportunity to go ice driving in Finland, touring events in the Alps, Canada and the USA, as well as trips to watch … [Read more...] about Driving ambitions: where to find the best four-wheeled experiences

Samuel Stebbins 24/7 Wall Street Published 6:00 AM EDT Sep 18, 2018 Companies have a vested interest in keeping their employees happy. Studies show that employee satisfaction is linked to performance, which permeates through every aspect of a business and can mean the difference between success and failure. While employee satisfaction should be the cornerstone of every serious company’s business model, only a handful of businesses excel at maintaining high employee morale. Based on employee reviews posted on Glassdoor, an online platform for former and current employees to review companies, 24/7 Wall Street identified the best American companies to work for. Out of a universe of hundreds, only 18 large companies received a score of more than 4 out of 5 stars. In an interview with 24/7 Wall Street, Sarah Stoddard, community expert with Glassdoor, listed the factors that have the greatest impact on employee satisfaction. “Glassdoor research has found the top three … [Read more...] about Best companies to work for: Did your employer make Glassdoor’s list?
At the tail end of the last millennium (if you accept, for conversation’s sake, that the millennia met at the stroke of midnight on 31 December 1999), a pair of American writers born one year and 500 miles apart – both of them Time magazine cover stars, both known for look-at-me prose, for devotion to the American “dream” or “idea”, for impatience with east coast elitism and new-left ingratitude and for recourse to words such as “loins” – composed speculative essays about how the present would look to the future. John Updike, writing on the op-ed page of the New York Times, chose as his narrator a college professor specialising in Y2K history whose students “find many of the details of that era difficult to believe” – not least the one-time global dominance of the United States. In Updike’s reverie, the US has long since been undermined by “the hardening congressional habit of impeaching elected … [Read more...] about ConsumerBusinessSpotlightConsumerBusinessSpotlightConsumerBusinessSpotlightConsumerBusinessSpotlightConsumerBusinessSpotlightTom Wolfe and the dream of progress

Thirteen at Columbine. Twenty-six at Sandy Hook. Seventeen at Marjory Stoneman Douglas. Over the past two decades, a handful of massacres that have come to define school shootings in this country are almost always remembered for the students and educators slain. Death tolls are repeated so often that the numbers and places become permanently linked. What those figures fail to capture, though, is the collateral damage of this uniquely American crisis. Beginning with Columbine in 1999, more than 187,000 students attending at least 193 primary or secondary schools have experienced a shooting on campus during school hours, according to a year-long Washington Post analysis. This means that the number of children who have been shaken by gunfire in the places they go to learn exceeds the population of Eugene, Oregon, or Fort Lauderdale, Florida.
