Too often, you’ll think you’re making real progress on dealing with an issue when the meeting will get sidetracked (or highjacked) when someone blurts out, “Well, what is resilience, anyway?” If there are academics in the room, almost invariably each of them will trot out their favorite definition, and then intellectual chaos ensues as each defends theirs and points out the flaws in everyone else’s definitions. The result? The meeting’s derailed,…

Madware is the aggressive pushing of ads to mobile devices (note: this is currently specific to the Android operating system, but that doesn’t mean that it won’t become a problem for iOS users in the future). Android users become victims of madware when they download certain free apps and agree to the terms and conditions (T’s & C’s).  Normally, these users become victims because they did not read and understand the T’s & C’s under which they agreed to allow…

Obama signed an Executive Order 13562  in 2010 that allows federal agencies to bypass older workers and hire “recent graduates.”  The highly-questionable justification for the “Pathways Program” was that the federal government was at a competitive disadvantage in hiring promising young workers […]
