PATENT FOR SALE

Magnet Motor

This motor works off of Neodymium magnets, not electro magnets. I now have my second model complete. It puts out 200% and up, we have hit 480% so far over input. This can be a power amplifier as well. I'm looking for someone who has the means financially to get this into the world and buy a license deal.

Big Data Boost for Restaurants
Cava, USA
One restaurant group taking advantage of opportunities provided by big data is Cava, a chain of Mediterranean-style restaurants with a presence in nine US states. It started by placing sensors along its queues. When Cava's chief data scientist Josh Patchus examined the sensor data he discovered that customers were bunching up in front of menu boards. Instead of cutting items from the menu the menu boards were redesigned. This produced excellent results with lines moving 10% faster and holding 12% more people.

What is an Innovation Catalyst?

By Rob Hoehn

Well, according to the Innovation Catalyst at Lake Trust Credit Union, Blake Woods, his job is to drive human-centered design and futurist thinking throughout an organization. This is why they’re called catalysts. Instead of being responsible for generating new ideas and stewarding innovation on their own, they see it as a facilitative role where they’re helping everyone at an organization meet this goal.
