Today's lesson

I was reading a great book... actually I almost finished it. And one of the things that I found specially interesting is that 90% of entrepreneurs can explain in less than a minute what their companies are doing!
In this case I wanted to let you know that in order to give you a good new! it means that if you are within the group of the 90% you can easily change it and become one of the 10%.
Something that could help you define your company's activities is to build a mantra. Something like "built to last", "Ready to help".

  • Nike's mantra is "Authentic athletic performance." Its tagline is "Just do it."
  • Apple's mantra is "simpler is better".
I will write more details later.

Green is in fashion!

Well I'm not an expert in fashion but I'm sure that our Planet is showing us that to think "green" is the right thing to do. The gooood thing here is that it is visible the effort of different industries in to comply to the urgent requirement to protect our environment.
By making more importance on this topic we will contribute on a more enviroment conscious planet. Talk about it with your friends... and find ideas. If you wish to share them, just write a comment.

Green dreams to all of you.

Good news for your pockets

I just finished reaing an article from Scientific American about "premium" gasoline. I'm normally using "the other" gasoline... the cheaper. And after reading the article I'm happier! For many modern and standard cars the premium class of gasoline offers no benefit.
Scientific American explains the "why" of that conclusion very good... check the article.

Loosing some kilos with the Nintendo Wii

I'm a lucky owner of a Wii console. I said before that this video game console can change the video game business or at least open a new way.
When playing with some friends I discovered that we always finished sweating. We said... that this could be a great way to loose some kilos.
Now it is official! check this blog and see it for yourself! and don't loose the chance to check the video posted there. Really funny.
Good for Wii! I hope they will release as soon as possible some kind of workout game... they can even offer accessories that could make harder the workout! Let's see...

Cloudy apple juice!

Well... After the holidays eating a lot... I'm concerned about eating healthier.
When I lived in Peru I was drinking each day orange and papaya natural juice. Now in Europe I normally drink "100 % natural" canned or bottled juices and some times natural orange juice.
One juice I like very much is the apple juice and I discovered that some of them are very clear and some of them aren't.
Now I found on the BBC a strong argument to buy the "cloudy" apple juice! check the article.
If you like Starbucks... they have the best natural Orange juice.... mmm!

Finding our roots on the space

The space is certainly something that captures the attention of the Human. Sure... it is full of mystery and possibilities of discovery. There is no doubt that what motivates more.. is what we can't see, is the possibility or the hope.

You can find many articles related to the project if you search in Google for "systemic project" and "systemic hunting planets". Or click here to read about the topic in CNN.

I'm back with good news!

Hello! I was out of the "gooood news" from some days. Basically because of a special project I'm working with, the Christmas season and some other small things.
And today I have the perfect reason to write about a good new for all fans of innovation and technology.
  1. New Mac video! This time "PC" goes to surgery in other words is going to upgrade from Windows XP to Windows Vista.
  2. Finally the iPhone is here! I was today talking about it with Boris and after months of reading about it we were not really sure of how Apple would capture attention "again". Very difficult thing. Specially because any innovation would certainly compete with the SmartPhones from Microsoft, the Pocket PCs, Nokia, etc.
    But the truth is that the product really impressed me! it looks great, includes a simple interface and very familiar to the OSX. It includes only what is needed for... no more. You can check more details and demos on Apple's page. Really nice thing.
  3. The Apple TV is also something interesting. For sure innovative and well ntegrated with the iTunes, iPod and Mac OS. Even it is also working with PCs.
Gooood news uh??!!!
