What’s your go-to breakfast? - THE DAILY GOOD

What’s your go-to breakfast?

Healthy diets movements are relatively new but they have significantly impacted the choices people make for breakfast. Cereals are slowly being abandoned for healthier alternatives including smoothies and custom blends of juices. So what happened to sugar filled Froot Loops, Apple Jacks and Sugar Crisps? They still exist but in most cases, the product is now available in pouches usable as a snack more so than a meal. Companies even started adding protein as an added bonus, which seems to be the saving grace of an industry in decline.

There is no doubt that Cereal companies like General Mills will have to think of a strategy since the number of kids, their biggest market, is slowly withering.

And you, do you still eat cereal for breakfast?

How did Vans go from 750 million to 1.7 billion in revenue in only 5 years? - THE DAILY GOOD

How did Vans go from 750 million to 1.7 billion in revenue in only 5 years?

President of the action sports division of VF Corporation (which owns Vans), Kevin Bailey, always thought that Vans was a company that was run too emotionally. In 2009, Bailey came back from a two year absence with plans to breach the confines of being a fairly regionally-driven brand. His past experiences working for Nike showed him that brands can often be scared of getting too big and that their point of comparison should be the best companies as opposed to the best companies of their field.

Most important for Vans was to stay original and iconic into the eyes of customers with a higher goal of making high quality affordable shoes. That’s the reason why Vans shoes remain at a reasonable price. Also, by using their uniquely built “Off The Wall” digital TV station, Vans created a social media strategy essential to reaching the new kind of online buyers and creating a hype around the upcoming collections.

Do you have any examples of other companies that have also made a big push in the past five years?

Do celebrities get favourable judgement? - THE DAILY GOOD

Do you remember Oscar Pistorius? He’s the guy we all loved at the 2012 Olympics for showing great determination by running with prosthetic legs. It turned out that South Africa’s sweetheart showed a different side of himself. On Valentine’s Day 2013, Pistorius shot his girlfriend four times thinking it was an intruder, but here comes the twist. After being on trial since March 2014, Oscar Pistorius was convicted of culpable homicide, defined as “the unlawful negligent killing of a human being”.

This decision could mean zero to fifteen years in prison for Oscar, although legal experts seemed to think that five years was an appropriate guideline.

This brings us to the core of the subject. Should bad decisions receive the same judgement depending if you are a known personality or not? Whether it was Justin Bieber, Chris Brown or most recently Ray Rice, did we choose to ignore these acts because we enjoy reading about them in tabloids?

Because in the end, celebrities are normal people too.

How smart is your silverware? - THE DAILY GOOD

Are you ready for smart silverware?

While Apple is reaping all the media attention with the upcoming launch of the next iPhone, Google is expanding its grip on smart technology. The internet giant bought Lift Labs, a company specializing in the development of tremor-canceling devices. Lift Labs’ flagship creation is a spoon designed to make small movements to compensate for the tremor that affects Parkinson patients, making it easier for them to eat. The company is also working on the design of a fork and a keyholder for those who can’t control their movement. The Liftware spoon currently retails for $295 and we bet that the acquisition of Lift Labs by Google will allow for more innovation and better price points making the devices available to a larger section of the population. We’re already looking forward to the tremor-canceling pen and scissors. What item do you think Lift Labs should try their hand at next?

What are you willing to lend to your neighbour? - THE DAILY GOOD

Pumpipumpe, a Swiss company, came up with an initiative to avoid those awkward moments when your neighbour knocks at your door to borrow tools. The project is simple. You buy stickers from their website to put on your mailbox indicating to your neighbours what tool or item you would be willing to lend.

The stickers are free and delivered also for free to residents of Switzerland and Germany. For other countries, they ask for a donation of $6 cnd. We have no doubt that the project will grow over time in Europe since mailboxes are often placed near the side of the street as opposed to North America where neighbours would have to come all the way to your porch to identify your stickers. Nonetheless, a great initiative to reduce overall product consumption and an easy way to introduce yourself to neighbours.

Is Starbucks messing with us? - THE DAILY GOOD

Do you sometimes wonder why 90% of the time you order coffee at Starbucks, your name is misspelled? Could they possibly be doing it on purpose creating Gessika out of Jessica? According to Comedian Paul Gale, they are! Spelling your name incorrectly makes people react and share on Instagram or Twitter, henceforth Starbucks can benefit from the oldest form of publicity; word of mouth.

So next time you’re ordering your coffee, just remember that the barista behind the counter might be smarter than you think.
