“This is the largest mass shooting in the United States where the shooters were still at large after the crime was committed. Think about that for a minute. From Columbine to Virginia Tech to Fort Hill to Aurora, all the shooters were either killed or apprehended on site. But the person or people responsible for shooting 19 Americans are still free.”

As we remember from elementary algebra, ab+ac = a(b+c). This is called factoring. We can break out the common factor a from both terms, so that we only need to mention it once, simplifying the expression and…
Nice piece on not building what’s already available and focusing on the one thing you do differently.

Yesterday, I watched Noah Kagan’s webinar on how to do $30M in sales, and he shared 3 great tools that he uses to close his deals.
1) Streamline sales with Gmail Canned Responses
Using canned responses is a great to cold-email people efficiently. At LaunchBit, we use Tout and YesWare…

Ella Eyre - Waiting All Night (Acoustic)
Here’s a gift…the same song done two ways, both amazing. Ella’s just released this stripped down, beautifully soulful version of a tune she was featured on about two months ago with the drum and bass quartet Rudimental. Girl’s got pipes, that’s for sure.
Below is the original drum and bass version, which is crazy fun. Be sure to listen to both.

Introducing Photos of You
Photos are memories of the people, places and moments that mean the most to us. We have always sought to give you simple and expressive ways to bring the stories behind your photos to life. Your captions and hashtags capture the “what?” and your Photo Map answers the “where?” but until today we’ve never quite been able to answer the “who?”.
Today, we’re excited to introduce Photos of You and bring you a new way to share and discover stories on Instagram. When you upload a photo to Instagram, you’re now able to add people as easily as you add hashtags. Only you can add people to your photos, so you have control over the images you share. And it doesn’t stop at people—you can add any account on Instagram, whether it’s your best friend, favorite coffee shop or even that adorable dog you follow.
There will now be a Photos of You section on your profile. When someone adds you to a photo, you’ll receive a notification and the photo will appear in your Photos of You. Want to make sure you like the photo first? No problem: you can easily adjust your settings so nothing appears on your profile until you approve it. Before your Photos of You section is visible to other people, you’ll have until May 16th to play around and get used to the feature. You can find more information about how Photos of You works and how to control your visibility at help.instagram.com.
Instagram for iOS version 3.5 is currently available for download in Apple’s App Store, and Instagram for Android version 3.5 is now available on Google Play.
New features, new logo as well.

This is awesome!
“Some people insist they’ve never met a gay person. But Three Degrees of Jason Collins dictates that no NBA player can claim that anymore. Pro basketball is a family. And pretty much every family I know has a brother, sister or cousin who’s gay. In the brotherhood of the NBA, I just happen to be the one who’s out.”
NBA player Jason Collins says he is gay
Killer conclusion to an important essay from Jason as he comes out, becoming the first openly gay professional athlete in the Big 4 sports. I went to school with Jason and his twin brother Jarron; both are seriously awesome guys. Jason’s the perfect person to stand up and raise his hand first, and to handle all that that’ll entail.
It couldn’t have come in a better year. It’s like 2013 where everything is completely different.
Things are not in a box, in the way that they used to be, and if they are it’s kinda like that’s like the corniest thing ever; like, please don’t talk to me I don’t wanna catch your mentality.”

“A ride from the airport to casinos on the southern end of the Las Vegas Strip, such as the MGM Grand, should cost between $12 and $17, while a ride from the airport to downtown should run between $22 and $27, according to taxicab regulators. Unsuspecting tourists may be paying quite a bit more if their driver intentionally takes a circuitous route.”
