In short, you should treat unexpected misfortune as an opportunity to reflect on your hidden strengths.
The best thing to do when the dishwasher has finished running is to take out all the clean dishes and put them away. The worst thing to do is to take out just a few clean dishes, and then have someone else come along, get confused, and start mixing dirty dishes in with the clean ones. Then the dishes need to be re-washed and everyone will blame everyone else for it.
While going viral — that is, having your products or store become briefly famous online and seen by millions of people — can be seen as the holy grail of small business, it can also stop your business in its tracks if not handled correctly. If you're not prepared for a sudden influx in demand and customers, the effect of going viral could be detrimental to your business.
After noticing that their newborn daughter was so lethargic that she couldn't eat, her parents, Nicole and Shane Sifrit, rushed her to the hospital. There, less than two weeks later, baby Mariana died. Her funeral took place on Monday.

It seems that ice cream has become increasingly about the optics. It's not enough to have a simple scoop in a cone; it has to be in the mouth of a fish, or come with a whole slice of pie. Ice cream rolls fit in with the visually arresting crowd, but there's an elegant simplicity to them that these other Instagram-able dairy desserts lack. If you've never seen a video of them being made, it's quite mesmerising.
Well, that was quick. Barely ten minutes after going on sale, the Nintendo Classic Mini SNES has sold out on Catch. Better luck next time, eh?

Dear Lifehacker, McDonald's and Hungry Jack's both claim that their premium burgers are made from Angus beef. From my understanding, this is just a breed of cow rather than a special cut of meat.
