AAPL rose over 2 percent on Tuesday to close at 143.80, a new all-time high. The stock also surpassed a per-share price of 1,000 when adjusted for Apple's 7-for-1 stock split in June 2014. Apple now has a market valuation of over 750 billion on its path towards becoming the world's first trillion dollar company. The milestone comes as longtime Apple analyst turned venture capitalist Gene Munster said now remains a "golden opportunity" to buy Apple stock. Munster said his new firm Loup Ventures has a 180 to 200 price range for AAPL, and he expects "clear sailing" for Apple investors in the months ahead. Apple analyst Brian White of brokerage firm Drexel Hamilton maintained his "buy" rating for AAPL today, with a price target of 185. He continues to believe that Apple remains "among the most underappreciated stocks in the world" and that "Apple has Samsung on the ropes like never before in recent memory.

The look of the movie is iconic, the sound of the movie is sublime - forget neo-noir, Drive is neon-noir. One of the most gripping and gruelling studies of human determination put to film, Whiplash may be about becoming a student training to be a jazz drummer, but the pain and agony he is put through by JK Simmons Abusive instructor is both a masterclass in acting and a fantastic look into endurance. It may feel a little dated now, but Fight Club was the epitome of male angst when it was first released. It's an angry movie, with work and consumerism in its sights but it's also a brilliant one, thanks to David Fincher's knack of taking the novel and transposing it menacingly to the big screen. Brad Pitt has never been better as Tyler Durden - his role making you want to talk about Fight Club, instantly breaking the first rule. "Alright, alright, alright.

Should we dismiss a debilitating memory as a natural part of ageing? The short answer: No Most of us can probably say that we had a better memory when we were younger. Now that we are older, we may find it harder to remember peoples names, what to buy at the supermarket, or even something that happened decades ago. Fortunately this isnt a big deal becoming a little more forgetful is a normal part of ageing, and we have come to understand that this is because of changes in...

One-to-one relationships do not exist between the medieval European Guild system and contemporary labor unions or protectionist rackets…. Nevertheless, guilds were very much like both those things in some ways. They were also vocational schools, where young aspiring artisans could, with the right skills and connections, apprentice themselves to master craftsmen, hope to receive decent training, and look forward to becoming guild masters themselves should they persist. Few organizations like that exist today. But there is perhaps one industry in which—with the right connections, skill, and persistence—a lucky and talented few rise through the ranks to mastery: the film industry, where a video store clerk, Quentin Tarantino, can achieve lasting fame and fortune, as can former part-time projectionist, Wes Anderson. Many directors who came of age in the sixties and seventies went the traditional route of film school, but one, Werner Herzog, took a bandit’s way into the craft, stealing a camera from the Munich Film School, feeling that he “had some sort of natural right for a camera, a tool to work with.

8 billion euros from 8.7bn in 2015, has directly benefitted from the EU. He emphasised the company’s Europe-wide partnerships, including the rolling out of a network of fast chargers for its upcoming electric cars, which were previewed with the EQ concept (pictured below). The meeting focused heavily on the transition of Daimler and its brands from being a producer of vehicles to becoming a mobility supplier. Daimler chairman of the supervisory board Manfred Bischoff said “We have to achieve a fundamental transformation, from being the number one premium manufacturer to being the number one in a new era of digitalisation. “[We’ll do this by] combining the strengths of classic world - engineering and quality - with the digital world.” Daimler is investing 500 million euros into a new EV battery plant in Germany, and it will launch its most autonomous-capable model, the facelifted S-Class, next month in Shanghai .

The march organizers are making use of a tech platform, called the Action Network , which offers tools like mass email coordinating, event mapping and planning, and petition creating to progressive movements. Despite the fact that few people have heard of it, the platform is quickly becoming the technological backbone of the anti-Trump resistance. Organizers behind the Womens March and the Indivisible Guide have used the Action Network to coordinate movements that have far exceeded expectations in terms of breadth, participation, and longevity. As more pockets of resistance coalesce and mobilize, the Action Network is poised to support them. Photo: Vlad Tchompalov via Unsplash Unlike Facebook, which was the primary organizing tool for the first Peoples Climate March, the Action Network saves the names, emails, and other data collected from people who register for events through the platform, making it easier for organizers to stay in touch with interested constituents and keep momentum strong in the aftermath of an event.

In the past, we've never really stored great amounts of energy. The huge power plants that fuel the world are built to scale up and down to meet predicted demand, running low at night when people are sleeping, and high in the early evening when people get home from work and want to cook, watch TV and run the heating or air conditioning. The last few decades have seen that status quo slowly begin to change. Not only are most of the devices we use now battery-powered, but increasing amounts of renewable energy (which isn't so easy to scale up and down on-demand) mean that storing energy is becoming more important. There are lots of approaches to that storage - from using electricity to create hydrogen, to enormous chemical batteries, to molten salt . But European engineers believe that one of the most promising is stuffing compressed air into giant underground caverns.

Remember back when VUCA (volatility, uncertainty, complexity, and ambiguity) only really applied to companies? Those were the days, huh? Lately, with geopolitical discord abroad, political tensions here at home in the U.S., and all manner of policy shifts that could impact U.S. businesses, plenty of entrepreneurs may be wishing for steadier leadership. I know I am. In good times and bad, I remind myself that holding onto negative emotions wont helpitll just chase away potential collaborators, mentors, partners, and others. Once reserved for boardrooms and managerial scenarios, it feels as though VUCA is becoming something of a new normal, impacting leaders and organizations of all sizes, pretty much everywhere.
