Potential client request. Sports memorabilia seller on amazon and ebay. He wants a new site and to be able to list products on the site and that automatically will list the product on his Amazon and ebay seller accounts.

Is there anything off the shelf that will do this?

TIL open concept office spaces are damaging to workers’ attention spans, productivity, creative thinking, and satisfaction.

We went from open office to private offices in the new space and I think everyone likes it better.

Found this on reddit. Basically you pay monthly, few practices here are 50-80 bucks per month. You get free visits and heavily discounted services.

Here's a pricing sheet for one near me:

Rather interesting. Anyone ever heard of it? Seems like a great complement to our catastrophic (only) coverage.

Economics & Investing / National Study of Millionaires

study of 10k by Dave ramsey group.

https://www.daveramsey.com/research/the-national-study-of-millionaires

Things I thought interesting:

The top five careers for millionaires include engineer, accountant, teacher, management and attorney.
79% of millionaires did not receive any inheritance at all from their parents or other family members.
 they worked, saved and invested for an average of 28 years before hitting the million-dollar mark, and most of them reached that milestone at age 49.
The overwhelming majority (79%) of millionaires in the U.S. did not receive any inheritance at all from their parents or other family members. While one in five millionaires (21%) received some inheritance, only 3% received an inheritance of $1 million or more.
According to the survey, eight out of 10 millionaires come from families at or below middle-income level. Only 2% of millionaires surveyed said they came from an upper-income family.

Plug in a url and it will gauge reviews on retailers: Amazon, Best Buy, Walmart, Steam, Sephora

Also works on Yelp and Tripadvisor.

Here is what they thought of the seller of the screen protector I posted a few weeks back which listings reviews and questions didn't match the product (listing is now fixed):
https://www.fakespot.com/product/xawy-2-pack-for-galaxy-s8-plus-screen-protector-tempered-glass-anti-fingerprint-no-bubble-scratch-resistant-glass-screen-protector-for-samsung-galaxy-s8-plus-7a6503ad-0ec0-43da-b7d7-6f49f8ce2fcb

Seller rated D, reviews rating now shows B since this product reviews are now fixed. It was F. Seller rating has remained D.
