    21 Jan 2015 | 12:37 pm
    Disclaimer: No kittens were exploded in the writing of this article. Yes.  I said Exploding Kittens.   “Exploding kittens is a card game for people who are into kittens, explosions, laser beams, and sometimes goats.” Exploding Kittens, a card game designed by The Oatmeal creator Matthew Inman and Xbox veterans Elan Lee and Shane Small has become the latest Kickstarter success story.

  • 31 Years of the Cult of Mac - A Tale of Anticipation

    19 Jan 2015 | 2:12 pm
    The purpose of business is to stay in business – and therein hangs a tale. Preparedness, the readiness to respond to a serious disruptive event and recover from that event is important. Disruptive events include more than natural and man-made disasters. They also include business disruptions. Business disruptions, as made famous by Clayton Christensen and his book, The Innovator’s Dilemma, have killed more, bigger businesses than have floods, fires, and cyber attacks. A single example from The Innovator’s Dilemma is the saga of mass computer storage. In the days of mainframe computers,…
  • Earthquakes Rattle Texas - Don't Let Preparedness Slip Through The Cracks

    14 Jan 2015 | 10:12 am
    1 :100. This is a ratio representing earthquakes. Not just any number of earthquakes, but the number to hit North Texas in recent years. Prior to 2008, there had been only one to hit an area called the Fort Worth Basin. After 2008, however, more than 100 have hit the area. Of those 100, 25 have shaken the region since October 2014. Last week, nine earthquakes rattled North Texas in less than 24 hours (12 in 30 hours). Below is a timeline beginning on Tuesday, January 6, 2015: 7:37 a.m. – Magnitude 2.3 3:10 p.m. – Magnitude 3.5 6:52 p.m. – Magnitude 3.6 8:11 p.m. – Magnitude 2.9 8:12…

  • Obama Forgot to Fight Age Discrimination

    25 Jan 2015 | 3:00 am
    “Obama will fight job discrimination for aging employees by strengthening the Age Discrimination in Employment Act … .”  Source: Blueprint for Change (2008) I was surprised when I recently read that President Barack Obama pledged in 2008 to strengthen the nation’s primary law prohibiting age discrimination, The Age Discrimination in Employment Act of 1967. Surprised because the ADEA is […]
  • Older Americans are Invisible in Obama’s Union

    Patricia Barnes
    20 Jan 2015 | 9:08 pm
    President Obama forgot something in his State of the Union address – the plight of older Americans. He talked about a young couple who suffered through the recession but emerged victorious. He talked about middle class economics and helping working families feel more secure in a world of constant change.  And all of that is good.  But he […]

  • Who Owns the Problem of Age Discrimination?

    Patricia Barnes
    12 Jan 2015 | 11:06 am
    Part of the problem of age discrimination in the workplace is that nobody seems to claim ownership of it. Folks who have already retired are very interested in the issue but it doesn’t affect them directly anymore, except to the extent that it contributes to health issues and poverty in retirement. Younger workers don’t seem to comprehend that […]

    The U.S. Supreme Court on January 13 will hear arguments in an important case in which industry groups are seeking to force the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) to engage in time-consuming and fruitless  “conciliation” efforts with recalcitrant employers prior to filing a lawsuit against the employer. One federal appeals court has characterized the so-called “failure […]
