This article is part of DBA, a series on Mashable about running a business that features insights from leaders in entrepreneurship, venture capital and management.

The hardest part of any acquisition is the day after the deal closes. It's a time when the PowerPoints are archived, paperwork is filed and the real challenges and opportunities begin.

At the core, every acquisition is about people. No matter the specifics of the situation, it's the leadership's responsibility to communicate clearly, set expectations and keep everyone aligned and engaged

Apple reportedly working on a Google Now competitor

If a new report is to be believed, Apple is working on turning Siri into a full-blown Google Now competitor.

The news comes from 9to5Mac's Mark Gurman, a journalist with a solid track record of breaking Apple news

The company is working on a new iOS initiative codenamed "Proactive," according to Gurman. Proactive will reportedly combine Siri, Contacts, Passbook, Calendar and third-party apps to provide users with timely, predictive data based on what they're doing in their daily lives

Apple already pulls from these data sources to aggregate search data for Spotlight, so using the same sources for more contextual information makes sense. The company already provides some of that guidance on its Today screen in iOS 8, showing users how long it would take to get to an appointment or to work. Read more...

Only 47% of grads are fully employed — here’s how to be one of them

Graduationcaps

Here’s a puzzle. Six months after graduation, fewer than half of new grads will be in jobs that require a college degree. At the same time, growing companies are desperate for capable entry-level talent

Why aren’t they just hiring the other 50%? In my job, I work with employers all over the country, all of whom are on the hunt for raw, young talent. This is what I hear:

Hiring managers want to look at your job application and say, "You’re the one." They want your resume to make them fall out of their chairs with shock and awe. They’re looking for unicorns, essentially, which most of us just can’t be Read more...

SeaWorld announces plans for Orlando's tallest, fastest and longest roller coaster

Feed-tw Feed-fb

SeaWorld announced on Wednesday that it is planning to build Orlando's tallest, fastest and longest roller coaster.

Named after a type of shark, "Mako" will stand 200 feet tall, reach speeds as fast as 73 mph and have 4,760 feet of steel track. Naturally, the coaster will be in the section of SeaWorld Orlando that is shark-themed.

The addition of Mako will give the marine park five thrill rides, including three themed coasters and two family-oriented ones.

Mako is a "hypercoaster," which means it is designed for speed, according to SeaWorld. Read more...

The art of fighting hunger in a starving American city

Picture a place where hunger runs rampant: You're probably seeing a desert climate — likely in Africa — and in your head you're probably hearing reruns of TV commercials asking for your help as dramatic music plays.

Although the suffering populations and decrepit structures are tough images to look at, there's a certain comfort in knowing that those problems are worlds away.

But what if they aren't?

In the United States, there are nearly 50 million people — 16% of the population — who cannot find food on a consistent basis.

Memphis is Patient Zero in the fight against American hunger, topping the charts for both poverty and food insecurity in cities. A 2010 Gallup Poll pronounced the Bluff City as the hungriest in the nation, and according to a 2014 report from the U.S. Mayor's Conference, Memphis dwarfs all other cities when it comes to the percentage of unmet need for food assistance — a jarring 46%.
