Charles Krauthammer, George Will and other pundits hold Donald Trump as something of a inarticulate bomb-throwing populist; inarticulate because his responses to pointed questions are "verbal hand-waving," and thus these gentlemen intimate Trump is ignorant, of many he things about which he ought to be informed... As I was flipping channels on evening, Trump was being interviewed by O'Reilly,...  Read More

Leaders influence. Managers direct. While it may not be that black and white, leaders generally do focus on what matters and why as managers focus on how. Both use different forms of influence and direction at different times. But leaders have a bias to influencing by inspiring and enabling through advice and counsel while managers have a bias to command and control. The more companies I help...  Read More

Many scientists believe that small experiments, guided by scientific intuition, are simpler and more efficient than design of experiments. This belief is strong and persists even in the face of data demonstrating that it is clearly wrong. The Design of Experiments (DOE) allows scientists to identify those experiments maximizing the amount of information about what is happening in the often...  Read More

ONE MORE STEP FORWARD FOR ALL THE VERACITY SEEKERS If you agree with any of the following three questions then is probably not for you: I am not at all interested in learning that there are irrefutable facts that newly prove Charles Darwin was a liar who wrote the exact opposite to what he had been informed was the truth about who he knew who cited Patrick Matthew's...  Read More

America’s corporate titans are no doubt giving thanks in advance for the bountiful tax breaks they’re about to receive from Congress. Capitol Hill is swarming with lobbyists pitching a tale of over-taxation for corporations, and gullible or venal lawmakers — of both parties, it turns out — are buying it. Congress is getting ready to revise the corporate tax code. “Conservatives,” business...  Read More

ONCE AGAIN, THE BIGDATA-IDD METHOD CUTS THROUGH UNINFORMED CLAPTRAP LIKE A BUZZSAW IN BALONEY I've noticed, since the publication of my myth busting book Nullius in Verba: Darwin's greatest secret, that many commentators really don't like being referred to as Darwinists, although they have no problem with 'Darwinism'. Many Darwinists consider the word 'Darwinist' as a term of abuse, and...  Read More

This week's research meeting was really interesting. One of the problems with Big Data is there is tons of it, most of it is garbage, and usually you don't have the one bit you really need. We were running through the key results from the analysis of what is one of the largest data sets ever collected from patients with this particular disease. The interpretation raged back and forth. After ten...  Read More

Prevent a runny nose by either: 1. Pretending to unscrew a nut from a bolt, or 2. Spiritually placing the runny nose in a Lucianic quantum box or praying, cancelling the runny nose with a B (disagreeing argument).  Read More

Meditating by silently repeating the lucian mantra and green sutra each for twenty minutes twice per day to allow thoughts to become lighter and disappear, backed up by a University business degree, (in fact, masters to write your own content) allows you to bypass the necessity to write 0, 5, 15 or 50 specific As (for a total of 50 rebreasoned As) to employ a worker, administration officer,...  Read More

As President Obama addresses those which would like to slow - and/or halt - the process of bringing Syrian refugees into the United States, the glorious Commander in Chief architect of ISIS, impugns the integrity, motivations and methods - which is Obama's wont, with any which may disagree with anything he advocates - calling their actions, and advocacies as un-American, opposed to "our universal...  Read More

Look around your organization. How often do you hear that statement? As an organization the tendency is to do things the way we always done them whether that is the correct way to do them or not. Ford told us the “Quality was job #1” and then they have the reputation on the market as far from it. Honda etc. utilized airbags from Takata and it is costing them widely. These are examples of errors...  Read More

The recent post on LI discussing the two primary varieties of manager/leaders, multipliers and diminishers really cut to the chase of much is wrong with our current leadership models.

More and more of late, the age range of the entrepreneurial demographic — those innovators responsible for the most recent advancements in tech we’ve benefitted from and enjoy — has skewed younger. Whereas many of the great 20th-century tech geniuses were far removed from academia (and their parents’ basements) when they reached the career-defining breakthroughs for which they came to be known, a...  Read More

Phil Hands -'s other caricaturist - seems to advocate - in one of his recent caricatures, viz: "When you reject Syrian refugees, the terrorists win" - bringing Muslim refugees to the shores of the USA. Phil intimates that ISIS "wins" if we refuse to bring the refugees here - to the USA - and rather attend to the refugee's needs, in safe-haven's abroad; I guess that is what Phil...  Read More

One wonders what the concept of passive-aggressiveness would mean to our ancestors; ancestors which worried about surviving the day? Passive-aggressiveness is marked - by textbook description - as an individual that may "drag his/her feet" regarding a particular responsibility, thus requiring their supervisor, or authority, to prompt them to fulfill their obligation; if the obligation is...  Read More

My earliest remembered thoughts on the topic of this blog post began some years ago when I read a British Society of Criminology article entitled: 'Leaving a ‘Stain upon the Silence: Contemporary Criminology and the Politics of Dissent' by Paddy Hillyard, Joe Sim, Steve Tombs, and Dave Whyte ( here ) . In that 2004 article, the authors noted how the British Home Office funding of certain...  Read More

Paris is a very old city, originally settled in the third century BC by the Celts. Over that extraordinarily long history, the city has seen some extraordinary evil. Certainly the eruption Friday night was among the worst in recent history, probably since World War II. I can’t illuminate the story very much, but I feel compelled to respond on an emotional level, in solidarity with the French...  Read More

50 As are needed at the start for and by a successful applicant to be able to produce 50 As. Each manager thinks of maximum 250 (in fact, 10) objects to be breasoned for each employee (2*250s, in fact many per manager per day), place culpa on them when you see them breason out the first ten. With 10 employees per day per city, you are allowed to place culpa on interesting people. Need to have...  Read More
