新近成立的Eleven James正在男表领域引入合作消费的概念。该公司的会员项目能令你获得亲近一系列精挑细选的高端腕表的机会，这一曾经只和私人飞机、豪华汽车及度假屋联系在一起的会员模式正在Eleven James的手中发扬光大。除腕表外，会员还能注册专享忠诚度项目，其中包括礼宾服务、合伙人利益专享及诸如腕表主题活动等独一无二的体验。听起来有点像男士腕表和飞机租赁公司Net Jets体验的大碰撞？公司创始人兰迪?布兰多夫（Randy Brandoff）在奢侈品营销领域拥有深厚经验，曾经在Net Jets担任高级副总裁和首席营销官、在Marquis Jets担任过执行副总裁和首席营销官。他的专长，加上年复一年增长势头良好的腕表行业，以及一种在其他市场证明行之有效的商业模式——看起来Elven James正是在恰当的时间叩开了市场的大门。

Whatever she needs to invoke the weightlessness of life in our new not-normal, she takes. "Is it the end of an era? Is it the end of America?" she intones in "When the World Was at War We Kept Dancing." "No, it's only the beginning."
Rounding out the top-performing sectors of 2014 was an unlikely pair: tech (+16%) and consumer staples (+13.2%)—the most aggressive and most defensive areas of the market, running side-by-side toward the finish line, with confounded spectators struggling to concoct a narrative for this. Why would the least cyclical sectors—healthcare, staples and utilities—lead the markets in a year in which unemployment plummeted and GDP growth gained momentum? Much to the chagrin of the pundit class, sometimes there are no satisfying answers. To quote Kurt Vonnegut:
Golden State equaled the 1957-58 Celtics as the only defending champions to win their initial 14 games. The Warriors are one of five teams in NBA history to begin 14-0, and will travel to Denver looking to keep it going Sunday.

TextPride was a fine business, but a tiny one. Meanwhile, the market for messaging apps was exploding. Facebook FB 0.61% bought WhatsApp for $19 billion; that service now has 700 million monthly active users. Tango, an app with 250 million registered users, is worth $1.5 billion. Kik has 200 million registered users. Snapchat, worth $10 billion, has 100 million users. A new study, commissioned by Kik, shows that U.S. users now spend more time on average in messaging apps than they do on social networking apps. The only problem? These messaging apps need ways to make money, and there’s no reasonable way for advertisers to wedge themselves into conversations between friends.

“It is exceptionally unlikely that we would be witnessing a record year of warmth, during a record-warm decade, during a several decades-long period of warmth that appears to be unrivaled for more than a thousand years, were it not for the rising levels of planet-warming gases produced by the burning of fossil fuels,” Michael E. Mann, a climate scientist at the Pennsylvania State University, said in an email.

“If I were going to have a bunch of 90-year-olds at a birthday party, I probably wouldn’t have that many there — and I certainly wouldn’t have a lot of kids running around infecting them,” said Dr. George Rutherford, an epidemiologist and infectious disease expert at UC San Francisco.
Fears of the virus are well-founded when it comes to these high-risk groups, and efforts should be focused on “keeping this virus away from nursing homes, long-term-care facilities and elderly people whose lungs can’t recover from this,” said Dr. Jeremy Faust, emergency physician at Brigham and Women’s Hospital and an instructor at Harvard Medical School.
