  • Kroger is rebranding, according to an internal memo obtained by Business Insider.
  • "Today, customers don't know what to make of the Kroger brand," states the memo, which was circulated internally on Monday. "We're trying to be everything to everyone — saying too many things in a fragmented way. And it shows."
  • The nation's largest grocer is overhauling its brand as it faces heightened competition from rivals including Walmart , Amazon -owned Whole Foods , discount grocers Aldi and Lidl , and dollar stores .

Kroger appears to be gearing up to announce a major branding overhaul, according to an internal memo obtained by Business Insider. The memo, which was shared internally on Monday, stated that Kroger's "old approaches aren't working" and teased an announcement on Nov. 6 in which "all will be revealed." Kroger is planning to host an investor conference in New York on Nov. 5. "It's been long proven that strong brands drive business," the memo states. "But today, customers don't know what to make of the Kroger brand. We're trying to be everything to everyone — saying too many things in a fragmented way. And it shows. We're a Fortune #17 company that doesn't break the top 100 in brand value ranking." The nation's largest traditional grocer appears to be rebranding as it faces heightened competition from rivals including Walmart, Amazon-owned Whole Foods, discount grocers Aldi and Lidl, and dollar stores. Walmart and Whole Foods are rapidly growing their online grocery services, while discount and dollar stores are driving down prices.  Kroger's memo concedes that the company is losing to some of those competitors when it comes to branding. "Core equities that drive strong grocery brands, including quality, freshness, making life easier and saving money, are now what our competitors are known for," the memo states.  So what's next for Kroger? The company provided a few details about its new brand, saying it "takes a clear stand that fresh shouldn't just be for some, it should be for all," and that it "has a standout look that is instantly identifiable and ownable and will linger in the hearts and minds of our customers." Kroger expects the new brand to"drive repeat trips and very firmly solidify our leadership position in the industry," the memo states.  Kroger is the largest traditional grocer in the US with more than 2,700 stores and roughly 450,00 employees. The company recently executed a store-management restructuring that involved hundreds of firings, demotions, and transfers . "Like many industries, grocery retail is navigating through disruptive change," a Kroger representative previously told Business Insider, regarding the layoffs. "These are not easy decisions, but we do believe they are necessary to ensure the Kroger family of companies can continue to deliver fresh, affordable food for customers, jobs with good benefits and growth opportunities, and our commitment to ending hunger in our communities." Kroger made the staffing changes after announcing last month that it wouldn't hit its three-year target of $400 million in incremental operating profit as part of the transformation plan that it calls "Restock Kroger." At the same time, Kroger announced improvements in other metrics. In the most recent quarter, same-store sales grew 2.2% excluding fuel, compared with a 1.6% gain in the previous year, and digital sales grew 31% year-over-year.

The best black tights that don't rip — these are the 6 pairs we swear by

  • Black tights are a cold-weather staple, and brands like Spanx, Commando, and DKNY make some of our favorite durable pairs.
  • Whether you're looking for tights with smoothing control tops or pairs to wear while pregnant, you'll find what you're looking for in this list. 
Tights are a closet staple that will never go out of fashion, whether you wear them for work, formal occasions, or general fall and winter weather . This versatile piece of hosiery does tend to be delicate, though. Even when you take care not to snag them on your surroundings, they often still find a way to rip, rendering them unwearable. I've gotten tired of throwing out tights that rip with impressive ease, which is why I asked the women of Insider Picks about the styles and brands that they know can hold up to regular wear. These are the tights you can trust not to tear right before you need them the most. They're also comfortable, supportive, and usually available in different colors.  Though you might think you have to pay $30 to $40 for a quality pair of tights, we also wear and swear by under $20 options.  Here are our favorite tights that never rip:SEE ALSO:  The best black ankle boots you can buy Spanx Luxe Leg Mid-Thigh Shaping Tights Spanx Luxe Leg Mid-Thigh Shaping Tights, $28, available in 4 colors at Spanx and Nordstrom Spanx makes my all-time favorite tights. The Luxe Leg Mid-Thigh Shaping Tights are a true workhorse in my fall and winter wardrobe since that never rip, never pill, and hold me in in all the right places, without suffocating me in the process. I wear and wash them many, many times throughout the season and am consistently impressed by how well they hold up compared to tights from other brands. I buy two new pairs at the beginning of every fall — it is $56 incredibly well spent. Spanx makes a very similar pair of tights for expecting moms too ! — Ellen Hoffman, Insider Picks director of content strategy The Spanx tights are ideal for fancier occasions or for wearing slim-fit dresses that show any extra pudge you have around the middle. The fabric is strong and densely black, which I like — I've never been fond of tights that are nearly sheer. I sized up in these tights because I knew they'd be form-fitting, and I'm glad I did. — Malarie Gokey, Insider Picks senior editor  Spanx Luxe Leg Blackout Mid-Thigh Shaping Tights Spanx Luxe Leg Blackout Mid-Thigh Shaping Tights, $38, available at Spanx I love these tights from Spanx. They're similar to the previous pair recommended by Ellen and Malarie, but they're super dark and opaque, and thus very flattering! They never rip and are just generally awesome. — Grace High, Insider Picks senior analyst  DKNY Opaque Control Top Tights Číst dále >>>

How to record Xbox One gameplay in 2 different ways, for short clips or longer game footage

  • You can record your Xbox One gameplay in two different ways. 
  • It's possible to retrieve a clip of the last 30 seconds of your Xbox One gameplay, if you want to retroactively record short footage of something that just happened.
  • You can also record Xbox One gameplay ahead of time for longer footage, which allows you to record the next 10 minutes of gameplay, or as much as an hour with an external hard drive.  
  • Visit Business Insider's homepage for more stories.
We've all had that moment while playing a video game — before our very eyes, something incredible happens, and you want everyone to know about it.  Whether it's a high score, a hilarious glitch, or just the satisfaction of beating the final boss for the first time, achievements are part of what makes video games so much fun.  It's only natural that we'd want to share those moments with others. The Xbox One makes that sense of satisfaction possible by letting you record clips of games as you play.  Here's how to do it.  Check out the products mentioned in this article: Xbox One S (From $249.99 at Best Buy) How to record Xbox One gameplay for short clips  If you're playing normally and want to record something short that just happened, your Xbox One can retrieve a clip of the last 30 seconds of your gameplay. 1. Play your game until something happens that you want to record. (Note that some games may not allow you to record at certain times, such as during transition scenes.) 2. After the moment you want to record, press the Xbox button on the controller.  3. After the menu opens, press the X button. This will save the last 30 seconds of gameplay so that you can view and share it.  Image_1__1_ How to record Xbox One gameplay ahead of time for longer footage  If you want to record longer game sessions as you're playing rather than just save a few quick highlights here and there, your Xbox One has that capacity as well. The process is similar in both cases: 1. Start playing the game that you want to record, then press the Xbox button on the controller to open the menu. 2. Press the View button.

Náhled

where to buy alcohol online 2

  • Buying a cool craft beer, nice bottle of wine, or party-ready handle of liquor no longer requires going to your local liquor or grocery store. 
  • Online delivery services make it less stressful, more convenient, and more fun to buy the alcohol you want. But, depending on what you're specifically looking for, some online alcohol companies will be better than others.
  • We categorized 14 delivery services into three sections: general online shop, discovery-based, and cocktail kits. 
For something that's supposed to make your night more fun or relaxing, alcohol isn't the easiest drink to shop for. You realize once you step into a liquor store or grocery store aisle that there is an overwhelming number of alcohol types and brands (and of course, the one you're actually looking for is hiding in an unreachable corner), and that you'll have to keep your purchases safe and secure through the bumpy car ride. Or worse, you don't own a car and have a long, strenuous walk home, including five flights of stairs, to look forward to. Online delivery services are making the stressful ordeal of buying alcohol much more convenient and enjoyable, as they do for most things (see: buying mattresses , gourmet foods , even large house plants ). You won't have to figure out how to lug five bottles of wine home or make a rushed dash for the store 15 minutes before your party is set to start.  Companies that sell alcohol online also help you discover new varieties. With the help of personalization algorithms, their recommendations are often scarily accurate. You'll waste less time and money by taking advantage of these online guides.  If you want to buy your alcohol online, we've rounded up our favorites below and divided them into these categories:
  • General online shop: For when you know exactly what you're looking for
  • Discovery-based: For when you're not sure what you like
  • Kits and mixers: For cocktail cravings
  • Just remember to have your ID on hand when your delivery arrives. These services require an ID check and/or scan.

    The best toasters

    best toasters

    • Although the humble toaster may be a small appliance compared to the stove or refrigerator, it still remains a vital part of your kitchen lineup.
    • The Cuisinart Countdown 4-Slice Toaster is the best one you can buy with its many settings and features.
    Toast has long been a beloved comfort food. It's cheap, easy to make, versatile, and downright delicious. For many of us, the heavenly aroma of bread transforming into the best beautifully browned version of itself elicits treasured childhood memories. Toast has transformed with the times. While we have been devouring heavily buttered toast with eggs at the diner for decades, toast became fancy in 2014 when San Francisco started serving up artisanal toast. Slathered with locally-sourced butter, jam, or other spreads, a single slice of the good stuff was pulling in a whopping $4. Avocado toast is an even hotter trend that shows no sign of slowing down.   If you don't want to spend that much on toast, you can always make it at home, but you need a reliable toaster. We've done the research to find the best toasters you can buy for browning your bread to perfection. For making toast at home, there are two major types of toasters: toaster ovens and traditional pop-up toasters.  In this guide, we are focusing on the more common pop-up toasters, which come in either two-slice or four-slice options. Which one is right for you depends on both the size of your family and the size of your kitchen. If you are single and living in a cozy studio apartment where countertop space is at a premium, a two-slice toaster will probably do the trick. A family of six in an oversized suburban home? A four-slice toaster can clearly make your mornings easier. Toaster features to look out for while shopping:
    • Defrost setting: This defrosts frozen bread before switching to a different setting to toast it.
    • Bagel setting: This will toast the dense bread, or anything else, on just one side.
    • Different width slots: Extra-wide or adjustable slots allow you to toast thicker bread slices. Some toasters come with extra-long slots, too.
    • Warming tray: This allows you to heat items — like dinner rolls — over the toaster.
    • Sandwich rack: Easily warm thin sandwiches. If you butter the outside of the bread, it slows the browning process and helps warm the filling.
    • A removable tray: This remains the best way to remove crumbs from your toaster.
    • Reheat Function: If you tend to plop bread in the toaster and then forget about it, this allows your toast to be warmed up — without further browning.
    Still, all the bells and whistles in the world don't really matter if you don't end up with great toast. Ideally, a toaster should brown bread evenly, consistently, and fairly quickly. It should also be able to handle a variety of different bread or food products, be safe, look good, and fall within your budget. Here are our top picks for the best toasters you can buy:

    The best active seating for your office

    Náhled

    • Standing desks and active seating have become very popular over the past few years, so there is no shortage of alternative seating for the office.
    • Of all the options we researched and tested, the Varier Move Stool is the best. It checks all the boxes with its easy assembly, comfort, posture improvement, and versatility.
    You've likely heard it time and time again: sitting is killing us. To make matters worse, studies show that exercise won't undo the damage done from hours of sitting. So if you think you'll combat the time you log in front of the computer screen with a sweaty cycling session or hot yoga class, think again. It does all sound a little dramatic. After all, everyone needs to sit throughout the day, right? While this is true, according to the American Heart Association, it's the prolonged periods of being sedentary that are the most harmful — the type that typically takes place at a desk job. It's easy to get swept up in a task and lose track of time, and it won't be until a couple of hours have gone by that you realize you've been glued to your computer screen — and your derriere has been stuck to your office chair. What can be done? Standing desks are one option, and there are plenty to choose from. However, standing all day can have its risks as well. Luckily there's another option: Active seating. This type of seating promotes movement, improves posture, and activates your core while sitting, and some models can work in tandem with a standing desk, so you can find the perfect combination of sitting and standing throughout the day. It's important to note that active seating is a lot like a new exercise. Since you'll be utilizing your core more than you would in a normal desk chair, it does take some getting used to. You'll want to build up to using your active seat more throughout the day gradually. Below are a few other factors you'll want to consider to find the perfect style of active seating for you.
    • Is it easy to assemble? Easy assembly — or no assembly at all — is definitely a plus. The easier it is to assemble, the more quickly you'll be able to start using your new office chair.
    • How much cushioning do you want? How much cushioning you need will depend on how often you want to use active seating — if you plan on switching back and forth between active seating and your normal office chair you may not need as much.
    • Is it height adjustable? This is especially important if you plan on using a standing desk, or a transitional desk that can go from sitting to standing, so it can be compatible with both.
    • How much space will it take up? If you don't have much space to spare, or you travel often and want to take your seat with you, you may want to consider a collapsible or portable style of active seating that you can store when you're not using, and that's easy to pack.
    Here is the best active seating you can buy:

    best hiking boots

    • When you're miles away from civilization, you rely on your gear, and no gear matters more than the boots on your feet.
    • The Asolo TPS 520 GV hiking boots give you the support, water-resistance, and comfort you need to conquer any trail or mountain.
    Choosing the right hiking boots means first considering the environment in which you will primarily use them. Some boots are designed for use in snow and ice and are ideal when paired with crampons or spikes. Others are light and breathable and will keep your feet cool even in the heat of the desert. Some boots are ideal for jungle travel, repelling water while wicking sweat. The fact is that no one hiking boot is perfect for all conditions, so you should choose a boot that's best suited to the environments you frequent. Pay attention to material, tread pattern, weight, and design elements like the height of the rise and the lacing system. Every aspect of a boot either contributes to or detracts from its suitability for a given environment or activity, and only through a thoughtful assessment of planned uses and a close study of the boot itself can you be sure to find a proper pair. For the record, if you're a serious hiker, climber, or camper, you're going to want to own a few pairs of boots. This is especially true if the seasons vary greatly in your area or if you travel for your treks.

You could leave your tent, pack, sleeping pad, stove, and all the rest of it behind, but you need a solid pair of boots on your feet if you want to trek your way back out of the wilderness safely.

    Nearly half of America's millennial millionaires live in California, and it highlights just how strong the relationship between tech, money, and real estate is

    san francisco tech worker

    California is a hub for millennial wealth. There are 618,000 millennial millionaires in America — and 44% of them live in California, according to a  new report by Coldwell Banker .  The Coldwell Banker Global Luxury program worked with wealth intelligence data and research firm WealthEngine to analyze the lifestyles of millennial millionaires, from wealth creation and property investments to spending trends. It defined millennial millionaires as those ages 23 to 37 with a net worth of more than $1 million. It also looked at the top 10 ZIP codes where these millennial millionaires live. Turns out, eight of those ZIPs are in California; of those eight, no fewer than seven are in Silicon Valley , from Cupertino to San Jose. It's not just millennial millionaires who are concentrated in California. According to the report, the state also has the highest population of millionaires overall, regardless of age. That doesn't come as a major surprise, given that Silicon Valley is the country's tech capital — but it does go to show the power Silicon Valley has in minting young wealth. Silicon Valley offers a trifecta of tech, wealth, and real estate Some of today's most prominent tech companies emerged in Silicon Valley in the 2000s: Facebook, Twitter, Uber, and Tesla all got their legs in the area. It follows that some of the biggest names in tech are known to live in some of the biggest price-tag mansions in the area. Look no further than Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg, who purchased a $7 million home in Palo Alto , or Snap. Inc. CEO Evan Spiegel, who bought a $12 million home in 2016 in the San Francisco neighborhood of Brentwood with his wife, Miranda Kerr. Then there's Twitter and Square CEO Jack Dorsey, who bought his San Francisco home for $9.9 million in 2012. And Silicon Valley is still busy minting new millionaires today. "They're 26 years old, only a few years out of school, and they have just gotten a big equity play of $5 million because of what they can do at their desk behind a computer," Karen Yang of Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage in Los Altos said in the report of California's millennial millionaires. "They view real estate as a significant way to build wealth." In 2019, several Silicon Valley tech startups went public , amongst them Uber Lyft Slack , and Pinterest .
