One of the stereotypes many have of the mega-successful business titans is that they are born to succeed; that they have all the answers, basically from the get-go, and cast a long shadow that envelops everyone around them. Well, there’s one super-successful guy who thinks it’s vulnerability, of all things, that makes for a champ in business. Howard Schultz gave up his role as CEO of Starbucks back in April 2017, but during the 30 years he was at the helm, the company grew to have over 25,000 locations throughout 75 countries. And what does this business giant see as... Read more →

As reported by several media outlets, including Fox News, Vice President Mike Pence was back home in Indiana this past weekend to watch the NFL matchup between the Indianapolis Colts and San Francisco 49ers, but walked out of the game after several members of the 49ers elected to protest the national anthem in the way that has become fashionable recently. Pence later tweeted the following statement: “I left today’s Colts game because President Trump and I will not dignify any event that disrespects our soldiers, our Flag, or our National Anthem. At at time when so many Americans are inspiring... Read more →

There’s tone deaf…and then there’s tone deaf. This, clearly, was the latter. The iconic soap maker Dove has found itself in some rather hot water after deploying a Facebook ad that was almost universally seen as racist, particularly given today’s social sensibilities. As reported by The Christian Post, the ad, posted Saturday, was created on behalf of a new campaign for the company’s body wash, and shows a black woman using the product, removing her brown shirt, and magically transforming into a white woman. Yikes. The ad has long since been removed, of course. In a statement on its Facebook... Read more →

Good ol’ California. So much of what that state does now would be funny, if it wasn’t so sad. And downright dangerous; like this: As reported by the Los Angeles Times, and courtesy of the California legislature and Gov. Jerry Brown, it is now no longer a felony to intentionally expose a sex partner to the HIV virus. Now, it’s just a misdemeanor. The new law, SB 239, which takes effect January 1, 2018, is nothing short of stunning. Not only does it apply to sexual activity, but to the act of giving blood. For example, a person who is...

Erasing history doesn’t come cheap. An article over at Fox News is highlighting just how expensive it has been for municipalities to remove Confederate monuments all across America, a cost that has only exacerbated the controversy over the purges. For example, in San Antonio, Texas, the removal of a single Confederate statue last month from a city park cost just over a quarter of a million dollars. The city of Dallas, Texas recently rid itself of a statue of Robert E. Lee. The price tag on that effort? Around $450,000. Dallas, which now has something called the Confederate Task Force...

In a survey that addressed the growing deployment of robots in society, Pew Research has revealed that Americans, by and large, have serious misgivings about the increasing role the machines appear to be playing in everyday life. According to The Guardian, over 4,000 Americans were polled by Pew, and greater than 70 percent of those expressed concern, in one way or another, about the continuing trend to have robots replace humans in a variety of capacities. The Pew survey queried respondents on the influence of robots in four areas: As autonomous (self-driving) cars; as substitutes for human workers; as decision-makers... Read more →

Your favorite non-sports network remains as non-sports as ever. Apparently not wanting to be left behind in the breathless effort by major television networks to demonize guns and gun owners in the days immediately following the massacre in Las Vegas, ESPN wasted absolutely no time in weighing in with its own, vociferous, anti-gun take. One notable network personality who went right for it is Rachel Nichols. Nichols has been a mainstay at ESPN for years now, and part of her current duties is to host The Jump, a daily show about the National Basketball Association. As reported by “For the... Read more →

We would all love to love our jobs. Unfortunately, it’s just not possible in a lot of cases. The fact is, they call it “work” for a reason. Still, it doesn’t mean you shouldn’t try to love your job. And part of getting there may mean going through a career change. Career changes can be fraught with risk, including the risk that what you thought was going to be a dream job ends up being, well, not so much. That’s not the only gamble, however. There’s the financial risk you take during the transition period. When you transition to a... Read more →

House Speaker Paul Ryan has long been accused of being a classic RINO (“Republican in Name Only); someone who, while carrying the Republican banner and seeking to electorally benefit from those voters with traditional American values, actually reflects little in the way of conservative ideals when it comes to taking political action. Well, just two days after the deadly Las Vegas attack, Ryan has decided to put off any more work on a piece of legislation designed to deregulate firearms suppressors, according to the Chicago Tribune. The legislation at issue, the Hearing Protection Act, was introduced into Congress back in... Read more →

A lot of people are probably wondering when and how comedian and late-night talk show host Jimmy Kimmel became such an outspoken leftist. Was he always this way? Or is it a case of “if you spend enough time in Hollywood, you’re bound to become a screaming leftist”? After his newborn son suffered a health scare, Kimmel used his opening monologue one evening last May, in part, to rail against President Trump’s efforts at doing away with Obamacare. He went after those same efforts again via his monologue in late September. Now, in the wake of the Las Vegas massacre,... Read more →

Mere political theatre? Or is President Trump ominously telegraphing his next move? As reported by The Hill, Donald Trump, using what is clearly his favorite mode of communication, told the world on Sunday morning what he told Secretary of State Rex Tillerson about the matter of negotiating with North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un. Trump tweeted, “I told Rex Tillerson, our wonderful Secretary of State, that he is wasting his time trying to negotiate with Little Rocket Man…” Which was quickly followed by: “…Save your energy Rex, we’ll do what has to be done!” Trumps tweets add some confusion to the...
