She is getting off to a good start with a movie called “Isn’t it Romantic.” It is already getting a lot of us from moviegoers that are looking for a nice date night movie for Valentine’s Day.

That is the release date, and the trailers appear at the show Rebel Wilson as a reluctant romantic that does not have an ounce of interest in this rom-com genre that has swept America audiences and beyond. She is totally against the Prince Charming movie magic, but this does not stop her from getting trapped inside of a romantic comedy world.

One cannot help but laugh at Rebel Wilson and her character’s interesting take on what appears to be almost a cookie-cutter romantic movie formula.

The laughs keep coming as people realize that she does not take so kindly to being caught up in these movies.

Unroll Me is an email subscription service program that allows users to combine their email subscriptions into a rollup box they can easily access at a time of their choosing. The program also unenrolled users from all of those subscriptions they don’t use and that simply clog up space in the email box. Created by Jojo Hedaya in 2011, the New York-based company’s service is a hit with customers across the country.

Sadly, Unroll Me service is no longer available in Europe. It isn’t that the company wanted to discontinue service to customers in this country, it was the simple inability to comply with the very strict GDPR rules that are in place. The rules are very different from the standards set in place in the United States, Canada, and other countries. While the news is heartbreaking for those in the country who used the free service, it’s great that it is still available elsewhere.

Yes, you did read that correctly and Unroll Me is an absolutely free service. So many similar services cost users an arm and a leg each month, but this one sets itself apart from the rest and doesn’t cost a penny to use. Simply download the app, open it up and adjust your settings to benefit from the service. You’ll appreciate opening up an email box that is less cluttered. It is less stressful and ensures that productivity is in your bag throughout the day, every day.

Along with using the Unroll Me service, anyone who wishes to keep their digital life simple and safe can follow a few simple tips that experts recommend. First, read and familiarize yourself with rules and regulations on any site that you use. Second, keep all of the software updated to prevent security breaches. Fourth, use a VPN to enhance privacy when browsing the internet. It is the easiest way to remain anonymous and reduce the risks of being attacked by hackers or hijackers.

After three decades working for large banks such as Barclays, Harry Harrison is blazing his own trail as the Founder and President of Anthemis Group. Starting his own digital financial services investment and advisory firm wasn’t easy as Mr. Harrison also had to find time to be a husband and father of two children.

Mr. Harrison talked about his education at Cambridge University and his subsequent three decade career working for large banks such as Barclays. Mr. Harrison mentioned that it is curiosity that is his main driving force. And curiosity has driven Mr. Harrison to see if he could create his own digital financial services investment and advisory firm.

When asked about his typical day, Mr. Harrison answered that he really doesn’t have a set schedule. As an entrepreneur and financial services business founder, Mr. Harrison finds new challenges on a daily basis. Instead of having a fixed schedule, Mr. Harrison tries to find a balance between running his firm and being a husband and father. This type of work/life balance was a challenge when Mr. Harrison worked at Barclays. Now, that is running his own firm, Mr. Harrison is able to be more flexible with his time without compromising productivity.

When asked about how he brought his ideas to life, Mr. Harrison mentioned that it was a combination of diversity of thinking, humility in goal setting and intense collaboration that helps him execute ideas close to his vision. Using these combination of approaches, Mr. Harrison is able to motivate and guide his team to help bring big ideas to life.

While traditional bookstores around the world are currently facing challenges as a result of declining sales and traffic, bookstores in China are experiencing a revival, which is credited to one of the biggest e-commerce platform in the country, JD.com. The platform has its own online book venture, but they are also providing help to 49 bookstores as far as logistics, book procurement, as well as technology. Providing solutions to book stores around China is part of JD.com’s strategy entitled “Retail as a Service”, under which they provide various services and necessary technology to companies from different industries.

The founder of Tangning Bookstore, Ningxin Lu talked about the partnership between JD.com and Tangning, stating that without the help of their technology as well as supply chain expertise, Tangning business would not have competitive advantage as far as the traditional mode is concerned. One significant partnership that resulted from the RaaS strategy has been between JD.com and Tangning Books. The two companies partnered in May of 2017, and they sourced all the books using JD’s inventory, and using the e-commerce platform’s in-house logistics ended up saving costs and also cutting on delivery delays.

As a result of the partnership, Tangning experienced an increase in sales of 30% from May to the end of the year, and its profits also increased by 17% over that period. Tangning Books was also able to reduce turnover from one year to 220 days, and having access to JD.com’s data analysis capabilities, Tangning now has insight about buying behaviors, and they are able to choose book assortments that are tailored to the company’s customer base, which in turn leads to more sales. While offline book stores have to deal with the fact that they can not stock every book that their customers might as for due to the limited space they have available, Tangning Books can now let customers scan QR codes for every book that they can not find in store, and they can get it delivered within 24h from the inventory of JD.com instead. This allows both companies to work together in order to create an endless aisle when it comes to the choices they offer their customers.
