Money Ain’t A Thing. When your net worth is close to $1 billion, you have money to burn. Such is the case in Diddy’s latest visual featuring French Montana and newcomer Zoey Dollaz. In an email to Fader, French says of the song : “Don’t wait on nobody. Don’t put your plans and dreams in someone’s hands.

Is Brown Rice Really Better?

Choosing the right grain is not as simple as you think. Our expert explains why white rice may be the healthier option.

Somewhere along the line a terrible rumor was started: White rice is bad and brown rice is good. We’re not sure who started it, but Ryan Andrews, RD and Director of Education for Precision Nutrition is here to explain the confusion:

The claim: All white foods are ‘bad.’

The truth: “Many nutrition experts demonize all ‘white’ foods: white rice, potatoes, pasta, white bread, etc. because it’s an easy rule to remember and grasp, but these foods are really only a problem if you overeat them, which usually happens when you slather them in salty, fatty, sugary sauces—also making them a vehicle for salt, sugar and fat.”

The claim: Brown rice is higher in fiber (one cup of cooked brown rice packs about 3 grams of fiber, while white contains only .5 grams) so it will keep you feeling full longer.

The truth: “If rice were the only thing being consumed at a meal, brown rice would likely take a bit longer to digest, and hence, someone would probably be more satiated after eating it. Satiety is governed by the components of an entire meal though, so if someone were having curry lentils, veggies and added a side of white rice instead of brown, it probably wouldn’t make much of a difference.”

The claim: Brown rice is less processed than white and is therefore healthier.

The truth: “Usually the more unprocessed a food, the better, because it contains more nutrients, but in this case the unprocessed component of the brown-rice grain contains both nutrients (good things for us to consume) and some antinutrients (maybe not a good thing for us to consume), which are what the plant uses as a defense system against pests.”

The claim: White rice is packed with empty calories.

The truth: “Rice has been a part of many healthy cultures for years, and since it’s what I call ‘calorie dilute’ (a low number of calories per unit of food), it’s tough to overconsume. To put it in perspective:

100 grams of cooked rice = 130 calories
100 grams of cooked ground beef = 260 calories
100 grams of Skittles = 410 calories”

The bottom line: You can’t really go wrong either way. Andrews suggests alternating grains each time you dine.

Mark Parker on How to Get a Job at Nike

Working at Nike is undoubtedly a privilege that any sneakerhead wishes they had, especially with the company’s upcoming expansion of its Beaverton headquarters. But what exactly does it take to be part of the Swoosh team? We’ve already gotten some tips from an ex-employee, but now the company’s CEO Mark Parker has shared what he looks for in any potential additions to the team. Check out the excerpt of his interview with Portland Business Journal below and read it in its entirety here.
Nike has hired more than 2,000 workers at its Oregon headquarters since 2012. What does the company look for in new employees?
At Nike, we’ve built a culture that attracts smart, curious and highly creative employees. Of course a passion for sport is also critical because no matter where you work — in design, at retail or in the supply chain — we are all focused on serving the athlete. We also look for people who strike a balance between mastering the fundamentals of their role and pushing the edges of what’s expected from them. That’s what drives new thinking across our company and that’s how people grow in their careers here. I started at Nike in design, but I was always looking for ways to contribute to the team in an expanded way. And we are big believers in the power of the collective – in uniting individuals with different strengths, experiences and points of view. The chemistry across our diverse teams makes us stronger together than we could ever be as individuals.
