Here’s the news that caught my eye today while wishing contributor Bridget Casey a happy birthday.

  • Want to hurt Peyton Manning? (We are in Patriots territory here, after all.) Well, you can’t sack the Denver QB/Papa John’s franchise owner—but you can cripple him financially by buying half-price pizzas. OK, your business probably helps more than it hurts, but isn’t cheap pizza worth it?
  • Who’s the best person to get advice from about giving gifts? Why, a behavioral economist, of course! Bloomberg has tips from one such economist, based on six behavioral findings (like thinking people like what you like) that lead directly to missing the mark.
