7 Easy Ways to Know If Your Kombucha Is Authentic (and Why it Matters) True ‘booch is the best. Step into your local supermarket, and you’ll likely see ten different kombucha brands on the shelf. But not all of these slightly effervescent, probiotic-rich beverages are created alike. “As with any trendy wellness product, there is a large selection of kombucha brands which are not as healthy as they may seem,” explains Samantha Morrison, Health and Wellness expert for Glacier Wellness, a company dedicated to natural and sustainable health products. “Although…Read More
The Beyond Burger is going public. Beyond Meat has announced that it expects to price 8.75 million shares at between $19 and $21 each when it becomes the first publicly traded plant-based meat company in May. The shares will be sold on the Nasdaq exchange. This announcement would see the value of the company reach up to $1.2 billion, slightly less than the $1.3 billion at which it was valued during its most recent private investment round, reports the New York Times. Beyond Meat plans to raise up to $184 million…Read More
Capital Ideas Media publisher Mark Bunting talks to Organic Garage (TSXV:OG) founder and CEO Matt Lurie at the company’s newly-opened store in the densely populated, high traffic and millennial heavy Liberty Village in Toronto. Organic Garage’s expansion plan is on track with Q2 sales rising 28% thanks to new store openings with more on the way. Big food retailers are eyeing the organic sector as evidenced by Amazon.com’s $13.7 billion purchase of Whole Foods and Sobeys takeout of Farm Boy for $800 million. What would Organic Garage be worth in…Read More
We talked with Stretch Relief’s CEO on the importance of limbering up. Stretching. We know we ought to do. We know that it promotes flexibility and muscle health, but let’s be real: when it comes to post-workout, most of us hustle for the showers over the stretching mat in the gym. So if we know we should stretch more often, what’s stopping us from limbering up? “The trend has been on nutrition and fitness, not recovery,” Amit Malik, founder of NYC-based Stretch Relief, tells Organic Authority. “People tend to either focus…Read More
This is a powerful partnership. Actor Mark Wahlberg is a fitness machine. Not only does he look the part of his action hero roles (bulging biceps and all) but he also takes his exercise regime very seriously, which was evidenced by his intense 4 a.m. workout routine that he shared on Instagram last September. So it makes sense that one of the biggest — and fittest — stars in Hollywood would join forces with one of the biggest fitness franchises in the world. In a press statement released today, it…Read More
In the year of our meme-lord 2019, Elon Musk has taken to Twitter to discuss some eerily well-executed photographs of his face edited on the body of Dwayne”The Rock” Johnson. We’ll allow the picture speak for itself .
Yeah, I lift a bit… pic.twitter.com/UAJdv8qSw1
If you were to quickly glance over these pictures, you’d totally believe they were merely generic images of The Rock. It is insane that somebody has taken the opportunity to make these masterpieces of contemporary technology. The fact that tech billionaire Elon Musk took the time out of his (assumingly) quite busy schedule to share it with a funny, self-aware and self-deprecating remark, is unexpected.
Musk has been having a peculiar pop culture moment lately, whether he is feuding with Azealia Banks or tweeting about strategies to take Telsa private, he does appear to be leaning into his popularity from the internet-meme culture.
Musk even lately went on Pewdiepie’s YouTube series, Meme Review, to discuss his personal preferred memes. Among Musk’s top memes is where enthusiasts edit his face on the body of Rapper Post Malone, providing the CEO face tattoos and unruly hair.
However, suppose with us today, what if Elon Musk and The Rock did unite personas somehow. Imagine the sort of world we’d be living in if there were a Musk-Rock hybrid walking among us mere-mortals. Both have a combined net worth of $21.58 billion (yes, we did the math). Musk-Rock would be an unstoppable force in whatever field they decided to pursue. They would probably create a self-driving rocket to fly to Mars to locate the Curiosity rover and challenge it to a Fast and Furious–design race via Martian sandstorms.
Honestly, that would be pretty amazing, and we would all watch. If photographs like this is how we input this deadline, keep those memes coming Elon.Read More
Elon Musk is about to urge a judge to go easy on him for tweets that U.S. regulators contend violated a court order, though legal experts say the pugnacious billionaire will have a hard time avoiding some kind of punishment. The founder of electric-car maker Tesla Inc. is in hot water with the Securities and Exchange Commission over statements last month to his 25 million Twitter followers about the company’s vehicle deliveries. The SEC says the missives violate terms of an earlier settlement prompted by his misleading August tweets about…Read More
Former President Barack Obama said Wednesday that he tried to build a culture centered around problem-solving and not personal gain while in the White House — an effective strategy for any organization that also prevents “big scandals and indictments.” Obama’s comments drew applause from a crowd of about 9,000 people at a business conference in Salt Lake City. Obama didn’t mention President Donald Trump and wasn’t asked about him during a question-and-answer session, but he made several comments that seemed to allude to the state of the country and the…Read More
Stop merely dreaming of a good night’s sleep. Sleep deprivation has reached public health epidemic status – literally. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention say that roughly a third of Americans aren’t getting enough sleep, contributing to a host of other health and lifestyle issues, including weight gain, anxiety, and increased risk of heart disease. “Healthy sleep is the foundation of health and wellness,” explains ACE Certified Health Coach Cassi Friday. “When we are lacking an adequate amount and quality of sleep, we tend to make poor nutrition and…Read More
King Louis XVI’s refusal to embrace reforms led to his downfall, Emmanuel Macron told corporate executives gathered at Versailles. The meeting was held in part to alleviate investors’ fears after 10 weeks of Yellow Vest protests. An estimated 150 executives, including Uber CEO Dara Khosrowshahi, JPMorgan Chase CEO James Dimon, and Coca-Cola CEO James Quincey, met with the French president at the decadent palace outside of Paris. “A lot of people thought that it was not a good date to gather here,” Macron told his guests, referring to the execution…Read More
