I got my teeth straightened through an online service called Candid for under $2,000 — here’s how it works

  • With photos and impressions of your teeth on hand, Candid creates orthodontist-approved, 3D-printed, and BPA-free plastic aligners to correct mild to moderate imperfections in your bite.
  • There are three main reasons why you may not be eligible for Candid: your case falls outside of mild to moderate imperfections and would be better served by in-office orthodontic treatment; you have not been to the dentist recently to treat your teeth and gums for cavities and decay; or you currently use a permanent retainer.
  • I used the starter kit to send in photos and impressions at the beginning of my treatment and visited a Candid Studio in New York to get a final teeth scan at the end, so I can speak to both experiences.
  • Every person I encountered, from the support team to the Candid Studio specialist, was friendly and professional, making me feel like I was in good hands during what can be a nerve-wracking process (these are your one and only set of teeth, after all).

Brand management shouldn't be an afterthought. A Kellogg marketing professor offers 3 ways to come up with a brand as memorable as Lululemon or Airbnb.

  • Roese, a professor of marketing at the Kellogg School who studies the psychology of judgment and decision making, believes it is never too early for entrepreneurs to focus on the customer and their needs.
  • Roese offered three ways entrepreneurs can incorporate early-stage brand management into their startup plans.
  • Understanding your brand's personality, and where it might go in the future, is especially key when it comes time to develop a brand design plan: choosing a color scheme, coming up with a logo, and naming and trademarking the company's products or services.
  • Roese recommended entrepreneurs determine how those branding elements fit along a "general-specific" spectrum — and try to find a sweet spot between abstraction and specificity.
  • Yet the company's branding materials, from its logo to the look and feel of its online platform, have remained consistent, giving customers a sense of familiarity even as its products and experience design have changed.

Economist: Warren is right. Her Medicare for All plan won't raise taxes on the middle class

  • The most important source of revenue for Warren's Medicare for All plan is simply to have businesses pay their employees' health insurance premiums to Medicare instead of private insurance companies.
  • Warren's Medicare for All plan is also paid for in part by the taxes generated from the increase in take-home pay that workers will enjoy as they no longer pay toward private health insurance.
  • In addition to the wealth tax, which she also uses to pay for her child care, college affordability and K-12 education plans, she wants a larger estate tax to pay for her housing plan, higher payroll and net investment income taxes would go toward her Social Security reforms, and she supports repealing Trump's tax cuts for high-income households to generate even more revenue for her plans.

With the US Army's new mixed reality heads-up display, soldiers can exit any vehicle knowing exactly where their enemies are

  • The Army wants to use IVAS, an augmented reality system which offers access to a number of valuable tools ranging from text translation to night vision, to provide increased situational awareness to the dismounted soldier both in and out of various combat vehicles.
  • During a simulated mission to track down an imaginary enemy named Abu Amar at the touch point event, we climbed into the back of a Bradley fighting vehicle and brought up a two-dimensional map in augmented reality space.
  • Not only did a red marker representing Abu Amar appear on the map, but when we put the augmented reality map away, a red marker showing the enemy's position in the physical world remained in the mixed reality IVAS headset.

My third impeachment is really different from the others

  • For three days, I watched White House aide John Ehrlichman testify from beginning to end.
  • I tell this story because it highlights the biggest difference between the Trump impeachment and the ones of Clinton and Richard Nixon before him.
  • With Clinton, it was Ken Starr, the independent counsel, testifying in vivid detail on all the evidence his grand juries collected from everyone involved in the matter.
  • In Nixon's impeachment, all of his senior aides testified in public, on television before tens of millions of people.
  • Mick Mulvaney, Rick Perry, Mike Pompeo and Rudy Giuliani all are missing in the evidence of the case against the President, by their choosing or that of the White House.
  • Now Republicans will argue that this makes the case all second-hand information and you can't impeach the President on this kind of evidence.
