Daisy Lowe on the joys of wearing gingham, Science and gender, One woman's bucket list for her dog.  

You can't look in the shops at the moment without stumbling across a wall of gingham tops, dresses and trousers. The chequered pattern, which probably evokes strong memories of school uniforms, has become a must wear for summer 2017. Jenni speaks to Jennifer Daley, a lecturer of Fashion History at the New York University in London to find out how the print originated in Asia and to model Daisy Lowe(a self-confessed gingham fan.

#229: Ricardo Semler -- The Seven-Day Weekend and How to Break the Rules  

Ricardo Semler (@ricardosemler) is the former CEO of Semco Partners, a Brazilian company best known perhaps for its radical form of industrial democracy and corporate re-engineering.

During his leadership, Semco grew from four million in 1982 to two hundred and twelve million in 2003. His innovative -- but very controversial -- business management policies have attracted widespread interest from all over the world.

He is the best-selling author of Maverick: The Success Story Behind the World's Most Unusual Workplace and The Seven-Day Weekend: A Better Way to Work in the 21st Century (not to be confused with another book titled in an admittedly similar fashion).

Ricardo recently started a podcast called LeadWise, where he has conversations with leaders about "challenging assumptions and changing how we live and work."

Entrepreneurship and education are just two of the topics discussed in this wide-ranging conversation. I hope you enjoy my conversation with Ricardo Semler as much as I did!

Westworld-style folding phone might get real this year http://www.cultofmac.com/472055/samsung-may-unveil-westworld-style-folding-phone-year/#more-472055 Smartphones that fold out into a tablet are one of the many awesome inventions the creators of Westworld promised we have to look forward to in the future. But according to a new rumor, Samsung might make them a reality in 2017. New iPads to arrive next month during first Apple Park event http://www.cultofmac.com/471709/new-ipads-arrive-next-month-first-apple-park-event/ Apple will announce its next-generation iPad lineup next month during its very first event at Apple Park, according to a new report. Sources say that production of the new 10.5-inch iPad Pro has been brought forward for the launch. The device is expected to be accompanied by an updated 12.9-inch iPad Pro and a more affordable 9.7-inch iPad. Apple “is expected to unveil the new iPad at a product event to be held in early April to mark the inauguration of Apple’s new headquarters in California,” The new 10.5″ iPad would have the exact same resolution as the 12.9″ iPad Pro (2732 x 2048), but the same pixel density of the iPad mini (326 ppi instead of 264 ppi). Crunch the numbers, do a little Pythagorean Theorem, and you end up with a screen 10.5″ diagonal   Server logs reveal Apple is testing four new iPad models http://www.cultofmac.com/471657/new-ipads-spotted-in-logs/ Device logs obtained by mobile marketing firm Fiksu appear to show that four different iPad models are currently being tested in the San Francisco Bay Area. Just because four model numbers have been discovered doesn’t mean Apple will release four different iPads this month. Last year, Fiksu saw new device model names pop up in its logs about a month before the new iPads were announced.   Steve Jobs Was a Low-Tech Parent https://www.nytimes.com/2014/09/11/fashion/steve-jobs-apple-was-a-low-tech-parent.html?_r=0

When Steve Jobs was running Apple, he was known to call journalists to either pat them on the back for a recent article or, more often than not, explain how they got it wrong. I was on the receiving end of a few of those calls. But nothing shocked me more than something Mr. Jobs said to me in late 2010 after he had finished chewing me out for something I had written about an iPad shortcoming.

New York Times reporter Nick Bilton said he once assumingly asked Jobs, “So your kids must love the iPad?” “They haven’t used it. We limit how much technology our kids use at home.” “Every evening Steve made a point of having dinner at the big long table in their kitchen, discussing books and history and a variety of things,” Since then, I’ve met a number of technology chief executives and venture capitalists who say similar things: they strictly limit their children’s screen time, often banning all gadgets on school nights, and allocating ascetic time limits on weekends. Evan Williams, a founder of Blogger, Twitter and Medium, and his wife, Sara Williams, said that in lieu of iPads, their two young boys have hundreds of books (yes, physical ones) that they can pick up and read anytime. Ali Partovi, a founder of iLike and adviser to Facebook, Dropbox and Zappos, said " I wouldn’t dream of limiting how much time a kid can spend with her paintbrushes, or playing her piano, or writing, I think it’s absurd to limit her time spent creating computer art, editing video, or computer programming,”   This Minecraft Hololens demo is incredible https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xgakdcEzVwg   Fartman, Leander’s alter ego https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B-XACODjHfc
