The Weekly Scale: July 5th, 2021

This week at MarketScale, we held a major press conference on the future of retail and delivery, hosted a true legend of education, and examined what “retailtainment” will look like in 2022. That’s making my wallet cringe.

Break out the ice chests for the dog days of summer— it’s time to scale up.

What’s being done to reimagine the next decade of education?

To find answers, our very own JW Marshall sat down with EdTech legend Sal Khan of the one and only Khan Academy. Make sure you don’t miss this incredible interview, which also featured AT&T’s Mylayna Albright, as the trio dove into silver linings for education after a year of disruption and more.

Conflict archaeology is a new subfield in the world of anthropology.

This week on Discover the Truth by Garrett Metal Detectors, I talked with retired soldier Danny Keay about how this field doesn’t just focus on battle sites.

I’ll be back next Monday for The Weekly Scale but, until then, if you know of a story that you want us to cover, let us know with the hashtag B2BNeverSleeps.
