On the day that this picture was taken, I flipped off a black homeless man. He was sitting on the sidewalk, and had a dirty red blanket around his shoulders.

Swag.com was founded in early 2016 when co-founders Jeremy Parker and Josh Orbach noticed that the current swag market was filled with things that didn’t resonate with its current buyer- often times a twenty-something year old assigned with the task of purchasing branded items for their newly coveted position at a swanky company. Parker and Orbach recognized a few things about these young buyers that other promotional product companies didn’t: these buyers didn’t want to speak to anyone on the phone, they wanted a curated selection of only the best items, and they wanted to feel competent in ordering a product that was exclusive to them. Now, just 4 years after launch, Swag.com has grown to 35 employees and brings in $7m in sales.

Japanese cuisine pays attention to seasonality. Seasonal dishes are matched with different seasons, and therefore the freshest seasonal ingredients are selected. They concentrate to maintaining the original flavor of the food. The methods of seafood, fish, tofu, and vegetables are very simple. Without processing, they will be eaten raw and may be cooked raw. The seasoning is especially light soup and soy sauce. The main food in traditional Japanese cuisine is rice, with fish and kimchi, and miso soup. Nowadays, an outsized number of traditional small restaurants in Japan will provide this type of set meal, which is named set food, and it's not expensive.
