    Today, executives everywhere are adapting to the reality of the Covid-19 pandemic. Information is changing daily, solutions are unclear and supplies are often limited, and decisions bear life-or-death consequences. At the same time, with the social justice movement gaining momentum in the United States and Europe, customers and employees are holding companies to a higher standard of social responsibility than ever before. Military leaders have experienced challenges of similar magnitude. For insight we can turn to their lessons: BE DECISIVE: Don’t dwell on your losses. In 1812, after Napoleon invaded Russia, Mikhail Kutuzov, the celebrated field marshal, knew that strategically...

    The New Testament humanized and personalized religion. This is the foundation of modern freedoms and democracy. Eastman Johnson’s sensitive realism was proving that black lives matter before the Civil War. Will juvenile leftist stupidity destroy this precious heritage or will we treasure it and survive?

    NEW YORK - Every hour that one of The Advance Group’s trucks is stuck in highway or bridge traffic, it costs the moving company around $200. And with 40 trucks trying to get into Manhattan daily and contending with the New York metro area’s deteriorating infrastructure, the price of lost time runs up quickly. “Getting to and from a job site is not really billable to a client,” says Anthony Parziale, president of The Advance Group, based in the suburb of Farmingdale.

    This cooked-up pretext to invade the president’s attorney-client privilege is a stain of shame on the rule of law and tramples on a 500-year-old rule that protects our common law tradition. The New York Times promised that today Michael Cohen, the president’s former attorney, “will describe in what was called ‘granular detail’ the plan to pay Ms. Daniels, which he will say was initiated by Mr. Trump, the person familiar with the testimony plans said.” This, the Times rapturously promised, would provide, “evidence of potential criminal conduct since Mr. Trump became president.” As shown below, this cooked-up pretext to invade...

    Pres. Trump signs Ashanti Alert Act into law | WSET http://wset.com/news/local/trump-signs-ashanti-alert-act-into-law-creating-adult-version-of-amber-alert WASHINGTON, D.C. (WSET) -- President Trump has signed a new bill into law to keep your family members safe. The president signed the Ashanti Alert Act, which is legislation that creates a new federal alert system for missing or endangered adults between the ages of 18 and 64. The law is named after Ashanti Bille, the 19-year-old was abducted in Norfolk in 2017. Her body was discovered in North Carolina 11 days after she was reported missing. When Ashanti was abducted, she was too old for an Amber Alert...

    Who will be next? This is undoubtedly the scariest time we have been in since America was founded. We have been here for about a week. Where we are right now makes the Cuban missile crisis or major terrorist attacks, by comparison, look like little more than daily news. One of the reasons I can see it and so many can’t is because I threw out my cable television over 30 years ago. If I want news, I go looking for it from reliable sources. I don’t sit in an easy chair and let some propagandist posing as an anchorman...

    nited Nations Ambassador Nikki Haley said on Sunday that she won’t defend President Trump’s “communication style.” "First of all, he has his communication style," Haley told CBS’s “Sunday Morning.” "But you're not hearing me defend that. "What I will tell you is if there is anything that he communicates in a way that I'm uncomfortable with, I pick up the phone and call him, and I tell him that. And I think that's something that he deserves from me,” the former South Carolina governor said. Haley said that she doesn’t believe she needs to publicly detail the private conversations she...

    “We have bridges that are falling down,” then-candidate Donald Trump told Fox last August, pledging to double the amount Hillary Clinton wanted to spend on infrastructure as president of the United States. “We’ll get a fund, we’ll make a phenomenal deal with the low interest rates and rebuild our infrastructure.” One year later and eight months into his presidency, Trump has continued to double down on his lofty promises — during “Infrastructure Week” in June, he told his supporters in Cincinnati that the U.S. “deserves the best infrastructure in the world.” But the administration has been slow to move its...

    Plant Email System Described Posted on April 7, 2017 in Intelligent Design What do you call a long-distance signaling system that involves coded information? Japanese researchers identified a coded string of information that acts as a signal, but it wasn’t intercepted email: it was a molecule inside a plant, the humble lab plant Arabidopsis thaliana. Phys.org says that scientists at Nagoya University identified a polypeptide that tells roots when the top of the plant is starved for nitrogen, essentially telling the roots to send some up pronto. The polypeptide is not a random string of amino acids. It’s an ordered...

    A dispatch from the new censorship-defying social network in the wake of "the purge" of alt-right users on Facebook and Twitter this week. The purge is happening. At least according to the universe of alt-right users on social media: Many of them claim that in recent days their Twitter accounts have been suspended and that their posts on Facebook are not being promoted or shared like they used to. It’s all part of a crackdown on "fake news" in the wake of reports that misleading reports shared on Facebook and Twitter helped influence the election. To many, these efforts are...

    Donald Trump's transition team said Wednesday it could have offered "better communication" after the incoming president emerged from his New York skyscraper Tuesday night for the first time in days and moved about the nation's largest city without a pool of journalists to ensure the public has knowledge of his whereabouts. Trump spent about two hours dining with family at the 21 Club, a restaurant a few blocks from his Trump Tower residence. Journalists were only aware that Trump was leaving home when they spotted a large motorcade pulling away from the building, including an ambulance with lights flashing. Spokesman...

    So what's different about 2016? The debate-as-litmus-test for likability doesn't apply. This year it's about unlikability. In other words, in an election cycle where both candidates are historically unlikable, voters aren't asking "Who do I like the most?" they're asking "Who do I dislike the least?" Here's what Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton need to do to win the "least unlikable" award.

    In Medieval times, Kings and Queens interested in maintaining control over small, outlying geographical areas arranged a complex system of fiefdoms, vesting feudal lords with their imprimatur to tell the local serfs and vassals what to do, and granting them the “power” to extract taxes – a portion of which would be given to the royals. Despite Constitutional strictures created to insure the contrary, the United States federal government has followed pretty much the same template, albeit on a bureaucratic, rather than monarchical, level. Case in point, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC), which is showing once more that it is...

    Sam Wei, a 26-year-old financial analyst in Chicago, has not had sex since her last relationship ended 18 months ago. She makes out with guys sometimes, and she likes to cuddle. “To me, there’s more intimacy with having someone there next to you that you can rely on without having to have sex,” she said. “I don’t want to do anything that would harm the relationship and be something that we can’t come back from.” Sam Wei, 26, finds “intellectual conversation more stimulating and more pleasurable than having sex sometimes.” (Courtesy of Sam Wei) It’s a less sexy time to...

    Just weeks after the FBI issued an indictmentless indictment of Hillary Clinton over her “extremely careless” behavior using a private email server to both send and receive classified information, the Democratic nominee has decided it would be funny to mock Donald Trump for wanting more secure military communications. Trump argued last week during a campaign rally in Colorado that using paper wasn’t so bad since everyone is getting hacked these days. "Everybody's being hacked," Trump said on Friday. "Let's not send it over the wires so everybody's probably reading it.""I like the old days, especially for the military and things...

    Planned Parenthood has hired a high-profile crisis communication firm to help it deal with fallout from a series of undercover sting videos produced by the Center for Medical Progress. Politico reports that PP has hired SKDKnickerbocker, a firm which features former Obama communications staffer Anita Dunn as a managing director. Dunn is perhaps best known for a speech she gave extolling the political philosophy of communist revolutionary Mao Zedong. On its website, SKDKnickerbocker touts its expertise in crisis communications in Washington and on Wall Street. “By working with a company’s existing corporate communications resources or creating a separate ‘war room,’...

It had some of the most amazing little blessings of things it would never occur to you to find in such a collection. For example, among other more common blessings of statues, religious medals, and so forth are blessings, often elaborately laid out, for things like a seismograph, a typewriter, a printing press, a fishing boat, a fire engine, a stable, medicine, a well, a bridge, an archive, a lime kiln,...

    VATICAN CITY (CNS) -- A papal astronomer won recognition for his ability to communicate accurately and clearly the discoveries of planetary science to the general public. U.S. Jesuit Brother Guy Consolmagno, a planetary scientist and meteorite expert at the Vatican Observatory, was awarded the prestigious Carl Sagan Medal for "outstanding communication by an active planetary scientist," said the American Astronomical Society's Division for Planetary Sciences, which chooses the annual prize winner. In addition to significantly contributing to the public understanding of and enthusiasm for planetary science, Brother Consolmagno "occupies a unique position within our profession as a credible spokesperson...
