Topic of Mastery
[The posts this weekend will be of the lighter fare - nothing on math, data, programming or excel. I have a lot of stuff going on over the next few days so I need to get ready for them. And, in about an hour and half, Microsoft will finish updating my machine with a major update. I think it's the Creators update. That would explain why my machine has been sooooo slow lately.] The other d...

The Tech Backlash

Tech Backlash - Fast Company
Here's another article from Fast Company, this time about the tech industry and how the industry is experiencing a backlash. There has been an onslaught of negative media, centering over these main points: regular folks' fear of automation sweeping across the business world, bringing everlasting unemployment and destitute living, the awful bro culture, and the vast wealth for the few wh...

(I’m a) Work In Progress

Work In Progress
I have nothing real to post because everything is in a state of "work in progress". Worrying about the hurricanes cut into my productivity (what little of it anyway) - speaking of which, the latest models for Maria doesn't look good for the Carolinas.

Anxiety: Tropical storms Maria and Lee

Profits with Purpose - Davos 2017
[I am waiting for one more hurricane to be done with and then I can get back to normal. I don't like the suggested path of the hurricane out in the Atlantic so I can't rest easy. Although I don't think it will come here but still... I'm so tired. I can't wait for December so this season is over.] While I'm still low energy, I will do an easy post today. On LinkedIn, I follow Kenneth Mikk...

Too Distracted to Post

Too Distracted - three storms in the Atlantic/Gulf
This will be a quick post because I am too distracted by the three storms sitting in the Atlantic/Caribbean/Gulf. After Hurricane Harvey, our town can't take on more water until everything has subsided. Just to the north of me, there are some homes still flooded. Irma is not supposed to come here, so why am I so anxious? Well, the meteorologists have said this is a category 5 and they ha...
