How to make a million dollars on Etsy — buy from Alibaba and run your store like eBay
Online marketplace Etsy is known as a place to buy home-made items, clothing, artworks, and jewelry created by individuals or produced in limited runs by small businesses. But not everyone using…
$50 for a t-shirt? That’s what I call getting tricked by a business. Or something like that. I guess on Etsy, like on all sites, caveat emptor. Just because you buy something at Whole Foods doesn’t make it good for you.
This Gluten-Free Thing Is a Really Overblown Fad!
All in all I feel better when I reduce or eliminate wheat from my diet. Is that gluten? I don’t know. Maybe it’s all the extra stuff like sugar that tends to come along for the ride. But I know I feel better without it.
The science on gluten seems a bit muddled right now. What I bet (and will take wagers on) is that our knowledge of the mechanisms and health consequences of wheat and other modern grains are not well understood and we will figure it out later and have a face-palm moment. For better or worse for either side of the debate.
In other words I doubt we understand this very well in the whole-body sense. Remember when cholesterol was bad to eat? Or everyone took Vitamin C supplements?

Under Armour (owner of MapMyFitness) buys both MyFitnessPal and Endomondo
What’s really astounding is that none of the companies acquired make actual devices. Instead, everything is about platform and data. And – more importantly, users.
Endomondo is the smaller of the two, clocking in at 20 million registered users. While MyFitnessPal dwarfs that at 80 million users. That is added to the previous Under Armour (effectively MapMyFitness) user base of 30 million. Total users: 130 million.
Just doing some back of the napkin math, if you were/are a user of those acquired platforms, here’s what you were worth:
MapMyFitness: $7.50 (at purchase there were 20M users)

Hm, maybe I should have kept going with my online fitness site I built in 2000.
What’s in Those Supplements?
The New York State attorney general’s office accused four national retailers on Monday of selling dietary supplements that were fraudulent and in many cases contaminated with unlisted ingredients.
The authorities said they had run tests on popular store brands of herbal supplements at the retailers — Walmart, Walgreens, Target and GNC — which showed that roughly four out of five of the products contained none of the herbs listed on their labels. In many cases, the authorities said, the supplements contained little more than cheap fillers like rice and house plants, or substances that could be hazardous to people with food allergies.

Perhaps eat food and lay off the additives.
