The Dating Nerd is a shadowy figure whose whereabouts and identifying details remain unknown. What we do know is that he is really, really good at dating. He’s been on more dates than you can shake a lengthy bar tab at, and he’s here to help the average guy step his dating game up a notch — or several.
We’re all a little terrified of first dates. And it’s not hard to see why. First dates can rea…
In Why a Data and Analytics Strategy Today Gives Marketers an Advantage Tomorrow, Matt Lawson, Google marketing director, and Shuba Srinivasan, a Boston University business professor, look at the ways in which it’s more important than ever for businesses to embrace data analytics. For companies of all sizes, the time is now: With the right tools, strategy, and outlook, your organization can turn noisy data into a symphony of insights.
“We live in an always-on world. That’s an enormous challenge for marketing organizations, but one with a huge upside if they can turn data into insight,” explains Srinivasan, Adele and Norman Barron Professor of Management at the Boston University Questrom School of Business.
The article explores ways that companies can build stronger data strategies to navigate today’s digital landscape. Some key topics include:
All of these points are worth a deeper dive, but they boil down to one message: You need to listen to what your data’s telling you. Analytics isn’t a spectator sport, where you can watch from the sidelines as your team plays ball. To be successful, you need to be in the mix, applying data-driven principles to what you do every day.
It’s not as hard as it sounds. Get back to basics and use the scientific method: Make an educated guess, run a test, and hear what the data says. Starting with the team leader, if the entire team can become comfortable with data-backed trial and error, you’ll see real results.

I’m feeling kind of hopeless in the relationship I’m in. We’e been together nearly 10 months, age gap between us is 15 years. We get a long great, there is so much chemistry. We love each other very much. There is however an issue that we find ourselves arguing over again and
There are many types of Preppers, but most of us find that we don’t have enough time, skills, or money to be truly prepared on our own or with immediate family. Most people are better off joining a survival community with professional staff and a good facility—providing economies of scale with large numbers of members to share the overhead costs of the facility, equipment and staff. More people means more skills, more hands to do the work, more guards and security.
Fortitude Ranch (FR) is a large survival community that can keep members spread out (when virus protection is needed) with sufficient size to deter/defeat marauder attacks and raise crops/livestock. Fortitude Ranch does not use expensive deep bunkers with blast doors—most residences are shallow underground shelters and basement rooms that have several feet of earth to protect against fallout radiation. FR has large walled compounds with many guard posts which provide the security needed in any significant event. Fortitude Ranch locations are situated in remote forested areas next to large areas of public forest providing access to thousands of additional acres for recreation and enjoyment in good times, and resources in bad times.
Another valuable feature of Fortitude Ranch (FR) is that it is both a survival community and a recreational facility. Members sign up for times to vacation, hunt, fish, hike and recreate during good times. Indeed, for the price of a vacation you can join FR and vacation at their facilities (members can sign up to vacation at any FR location, not just their “home fort.”) Many members come out to use our firing range on weekends. We operate a Bed and Breakfast at our WV location. Fortitude Ranch is especially popular during hunting season since we are next to public forestland without nearby public access.
FR uses an affordable “country club membership” format: a low upfront fee to join and then quarterly payments. FR membership costs about $1,000 per person a year. While we have full time staff in charge of security, we rely on all members to serve as guards, cooks, keeping woodstoves stocked, and other work during a collapse—keeping costs down and members busy (and psychologically healthy) during such an event.
FR has two facilities now, located in West Virginia and Colorado, and is raising funds for expanding to a dozen locations across the U.S. FR facilities are equipped to survive any type of disaster and long-term loss of law and order, managed by full time staff.
Fortitude Ranch (FR) CEO is Dr. Drew Miller, an Air Force Academy graduate, retired USAF Reserve Colonel and intelligence officer, with a Masters Degree and PhD from Harvard University. Dr. Miller served in the Institute for Defense Analysis, the top DoD think tank, and in the Senior Executive Service in the Pentagon. A former Vice President at Securities America, Drew has published articles and spoken at national conferences on major threats we face today, including bioengineered viral pandemics and our very vulnerable electrical system.
FR is doing an advance sale of memberships to fund expansion using a “cryptocurrency” token, called a Fortitude, that gives you a discount price on Fortitude Ranch membership, protection from membership price increases, and priority in joining FR when there is a wait list. The funds raised will pay for building out the WV and CO sites and adding new sites. Fortitude token buyers will vote on what places they prefer for our next location. By owning Fortitudes you can buy into FR at a discounted price and have first place in line when there is more demand than we have room for.
During a major crisis or media reports on developing threats, demand for membership in FR will surge beyond our capacity, and the price of Fortitudes will likely spike since those who want to get in will need Fortitudes to have priority to join. Because FR is offering a utility token with no equity features, it does not have the security regulatory risks associated with many other “Initial Coin Offerings.” Advisors on this fund raise include Larry Hall, the CEO of Survival Condo, the most successful survival services company.
While the discounted price is a major advantage of buying Fortitude membership tokens, the more important benefit is to be sure you can have priority to join when a crisis is brewing and we cannot handle demand. You can vote on recommendations for future FR locations. If you later decide you have other reliable means of protection you can sell your tokens on a cryptocurrency exchange. You can buy Fortitude tokens with dollars on line—you don’t have to be a cryptocurrency expert.

Not Sure What Strength Of Gripper To Get?
– Check out our gripper guide below…
HG 100 “Beginner” – At the first squeeze, the HG100 may not seem to be much tougher than a store-bought plastic hand-gripper, but it’s smooth action and aggressive knurled grip can be deceiving. The “Beginner” is perfect for consumers beginning their ‘grip training’ as well as younger athletes, female athletes, athletes with small hands and warm-ups for stronger athletes.
HG 150 “Intermediate” – Consumers that have a fairly strong grip can usually squeeze out a few reps with the HG150, but it can be difficult for females and younger athletes although those athletes can easily work up to the HG150 in a short time with consistent training. Most athletes with consistent HG training will find that the HG150 only provides resistance for 3 to 15 reps for 2 to 6 weeks and they are ready to step up to the HG200 or beyond because the hand responds so well to resistance training with low repetitions.
HG 200 “Advanced” – The HG200 is the level that even athletes with a naturally strong grip may have trouble closing. Athletes with advanced grip training will not have too much trouble with the HG200, but those with no grip training experience will most likely find it very difficult to close the HG200 at the beginning of their training. When you are closing the HG200 for reps, your performance for any sport using your hands will be greatly enhanced.
HG 250 “Professional” – When you are closing the HG250 for reps, you will have to be very careful when shaking people’s hand! If you can close the HG250 once, your hand strength is well beyond the average athlete. Usually only athletes with a hardcore grip training regimen and people who do heavy work with their hands can close the HG250 on their first attempt. Just because you have lifted weights for a few years, don’t assume that you will be able to close a HG250. It’s much harder than it looks!
HG 300 “The Gripper King” – Although there are well over 50,000 HG300’s on the market, we estimate that there are less than 1000 athletes world-wide that can do reps with this hand grip although most male athletes (and there have been a couple of women) with an average-sized hand can build up their hand-strength to close a HG300 for at least one rep if they train regularly with the Heavy Grips. The key to closing the HG300 is consistency with your hand-strength training and avoiding over-training (Don’t train with your HG’s more than twice per week or when your hand is still sore from your last workout)
HG350 “The Grip Monster” – The newest addition to the Heavy Grip line-up! The HG 350 came at the request of some very strong athletes who complained that the HG300 was not “tough enough!” Although there have been some very strong athletes doing reps with the HG300, we haven’t had anyone tell us that the HG350 was too easy! If you can close the HG350, your hand strength is definitely ‘world-class’.
