By Namrita Kapurby Thomas Murray, VP of Corporate Partnerships, and Namrita Kapur, Managing Director of Corporate Partnerships Too often, environmental performance gets labeled as the responsibility of one team within a company – whether that of a dedicated sustainability staff, external or public affairs, legal or compliance, etc. As a result, a company’s staff can often think of environmental and social governance (ESG) issues ...

Tea Iced!

Source: Politics - The Huffington Post

The more I write articles examining the Tea Party phenomenon in detail, the more impressed I am at how versatile the concept of "tea" is when it comes to creating metaphors -- especially when it comes time to write the article's headline. There is, after all, a long list to choose from: weak tea, strong tea, bitter tea, sweet tea, iced tea, tea party (as in "ain't just a..." or perhaps the ma ...

Source: The Huffington Post: UK Edition

The late Neil Armstrong is rightly regarded as a hero for being the first person to ever walk on the Moon. But arguably his greatest feat was managing to land the Apollo 11 Lunar Lander in the first place. The Lander was -- in the words of Douglas Adams -- a crazy piece of near junk by today's standards, and while it was an obvious technical marvel, landing it was also incredibly risky.

Don’t Fear the Network: The Internet Is Changing the Way We Communicate for the Better

True leaders gone, of land and people. We choose no kin but adopted strangers. The family weakens by the length we travel. —Jane’s Addiction, “Three Days,” 1990 It seems pretty obvious to most observers that our social networks have changed in the past few decades thanks to technology.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
