Issendai's Superhero Training Journal - How to keep someone with you forever
So you want to keep your lover or your employee close. Bound to you, even. You have a few options. You could be the best lover they've ever had, kind, charming, thoughtful, competent, witty, and a tiger in bed. You could be the best workplace they've ever had, with challenging work, rewards for talent, initiative, and professional development, an excellent work/life balance, and good pay. But both of those options demand a lot from you. Besides, your lover (or employee) will stay only as long as she wants to under those systems, and you want to keep her even when she doesn't want to stay. How do you pin her to your side, irrevocably, permanently, and perfectly legally?

Why Your Employees Are Losing Motivation - HBS Working Knowledge
The article suggests that managers spend too much time trying to figure out how to motivate employees—something most workers are perfectly capable of doing themselves. Instead, team leaders need to get out of the way and stop de-motivating employees with mindless policies and poor management strategies.

The authors say people have three main goals at work: 1) to be treated with respect and equity, 2) to take pride in a job well done, and 3) to have good relationships with fellow employees. If even one of these factors are missing, workers are three times as likely to be unhappy at work. Surprisingly, not even a better paycheck will make up for the loss of one of the three biggest motivators.

Graffiti artist Banksy unmasked ... as a former public schoolboy from middle-class suburbia | Mail Online
He is perhaps the most famous, or infamous, artist alive. Perhaps his most provocative statement, ad the one that generates the most publicity, is the fact that his true identity has always been a jealously guarded secret, known only to trusted frieds.

Vanishing Point: How to disappear in America without a trace
The essay, "Vanishing Point: How to disappear in America without a trace." is some of the most paranoid crap I've ever read, some of it criminal in nature, but it speaks to lengths one might have to go to "live off the grid" as it were, in modern America.
