A handful of splendid finds from around the worldwide web:

UTA becomes first major agency to sign a Periscope star. "UTA has signed Amanda Oleander, a visual artist and illustrator who has become one of the live-streaming app’s biggest breakouts." [The Hollywood Reporter]

How much harm can sugar do? "Many nutritionists believe it’s time to stop demonizing individual components of our diet—whether it’s fat, carbohydrates, cholesterol, or even sugar. It’s time to acknowledge that the special diets that obsess us—whether they consist of fruit or eliminate fruit, rely on meat or banish it—don’t work." [The New Yorker]

What if everything you knew about disciplining kids was wrong? "That might sound like the kind of question your mom dismissed as making excuses. But it's actually at the core of some remarkable research that is starting to revolutionize discipline from juvenile jails to elementary schools." [Mother Jones]

The Ritz-Carlton has launched a new logo and brand color. "This is the first time in the 32 year history of The Ritz-Carlton that any changes have been made to the revered lion and crown." [The Ritz-Carlton]

Noteworthy from The Splendid Collective:

Engagement season kicks off on Thanksgiving at the end of November, so I'll be teaching a series of online classes each Tuesday in October to help you get your business ready. I'll be covering marketing and selling to millennials, selling to affluent millennials for those of you who work in luxury weddings, as well as a bonus class on working with millennials as employees. I'll be presenting new research and insights, so even if you've seen me speak before, this will still be largely new information. Early bird pricing ends next week and you can sign up for as many classes as you'd like, including a special early bird bundle of buy 3, get one free.
