The Unscripted Weekly: Productivity, Netflix, 401K, Immigrants, and Lasagna

The Unscripted Weekly features links to various articles I have come across in my travels across the internet.  Feel free to share your own internet journeys, and thoughts on these articles in the comments section.

10 Productivity Resolutions to Simplify Your Workday All Year Long on Fast Company – “Having a more productive 2017 doesn’t require any life-changing revelations or complete lifestyle overhauls. Minor changes to routines, small adjustments to working habits, and a little bit more focus on a few oft-ignored areas are not only simple ways to improve workplace performance in the coming year, but can also help build habits that are more likely to survive the entire year.”

The Most Popular Netflix Shows in Each State Will Delight and Probably Not Surprise You on GQ – “Netflix doesn’t release viewer data, and is cagey in general about the viewership stats for any of its shows, particularly the ones it makes in-house. So this isn’t exact science, but it’s hard not to look at this map and think, Yeah… this makes sense, either out of pride or abject shame.”

4 ways to jump-start your retirement savings in 2017 on CNN – ” About 80% of Americans surveyed by Voya Financial said they hadn’t taken the time to review or revise their retirement plan within the past year.  So simply taking a look at how your 401(k) or IRA performed in 2016 will mean you’re already doing more than most Americans.”

If someone doesn’t like immigrants, ask them this question on The Washington Post – “For all of the ruckus over anchor babies and border walls and mass deportation, Americans know little about the nation’s immigrants.  Half of the public believes that immigrants make crime worse, when data shows they are actually more law-abiding than the native-born. Fifty-nine percent complain that immigrants aren’t learning English fast enough, when in fact they are more fluent than past immigrants.”

Guys, Stop Boiling Your Lasagna Noodles Already on Epicurious – “There’s another way. And it’s faster, easier, and tastes better.”
