    How to Create a Business Budget: Guide for Small Business Owners

    Here are a few tips that have helped me with budgeting for my business.

Allocate more of your budget to sales or marketing!  Tip 2: Set Monthly Spending Goals You should also set monthly spending goals based on the money you have coming in. This means establishing how much money you can spend on supplies, advertising, and other expenses without exceeding the budget. When I ran…

    Pill Bugs And Chitons Get Jobs As Tiny Grippers

    A research paper titled Biological Organisms as End Effectors explores the oddball approach of giving small animals jobs as grippers at the end of a robotic arm.

The prototypes are really just proofs of concept, but it’s a novel idea that does work in at least a simple way. Pill bugs reflexively close, and in the process can grasp and hold lightweight objects. The release is simply a matter of time; researchers say that after about 115…

    The Legislative Push for Pay Transparency in Canada Mirrors Global Trend

    Special thanks to our summer associate Daniel Dai for contributing to this update. British Columbia’s Pay Transparency Act, which received royal assent on May 11, 2023, imposes pay disclosure and reporting obligations on both public and private sector employers to address systemic discrimination in the workplace. It is the latest in a series of new pay transparency laws across Canada. This push for more transparency to bridge the pay gap for historically disadvantaged groups is a global trend. In the United States, 8 states, including California, Colorado and Washington, along with cities like New York City, have recently adopted salary disclosure laws. There is also pending legislation at the federal…
