Are "rank and yank" evaluation methods and ultra-detailed metrics the future of work, a la Amazon, or Frederick Taylor's 20th century scientific management methods on steroids?  Time will tell.  I hope that other companies with a different work ethic will prevail. ~  Deb
Amazon may be singular ...[or] ...just been quicker in responding to changes that the rest of the work world is now experiencing: data that allows individual performance to be measured continuously, come-and-go relationships between employers and employees, and global competition in which empires...

Troll disruption taken more seriously by Twitter?  Could it be social media is entering an adulthood?
 
Crowd-sourced blacklists, an interesting idea, and a sign that Twitter is taking its troll problem more seriously.

I wonder though what kind of abuse this leaves the platform open to. Imagine an innocent person being thrown onto a list like this for some reason (spite, revenge, blackmail) and the list becoming widely distributed. What recourse would they have?

Mute and block are tools to help you control your Twitter experience. While many users find them useful, we also recognise that some users — those who experience high volumes of unwanted interactions on Twitter — need more sophisticated tools. That’s where this new feature comes in. You can now export and share your block lists with people in your community facing similar issues or import another user’s list into your own account and block multiple accounts all at once, instead of blocking them individually. We also hope these advanced blocking tools will prove useful to the developer community to further improve users’ experience.”

#twitter #trolls #speech


For those who have considered quitting Twitter because of the unnecessary tweets they are subject to, now have relief offered by Twitter.

I'm proud to be a member of Jean's organization. They've done amazing things, with more to come.  The NCAA governance change project is but one example.
“…With the problems [it] faces, and with a recently reelected leader who seems unable to accept responsibility, is FIFA…worth being saved?”  ...the U.S. Department of Justice unsealed its 47-count indictment against those individuals has focused on how FIFA’s governance structure—which gives its 209 member-nations and each one’s soccer association equal voting rights—made it susceptible to widespread wrongdoing.      _____________________________...

What's the Reality of the Life Cycle of Teams in Family Businesses?
Family teams and groups of owners/partners with longstanding relationships have a lot of shared history, ...a source of cohesion and trust. Such trust, a by-product of safety, has been found to be a key ingredient that contributes to high performance in teams. This is an example of 3 from the article on Crouching Tigers: Sources of Competitive Advantage Regarding the  Hidden Dragons: Unseen Fault Lines One example, that you may intuitively know, ...

Very useful.  Thanks for the photos and the post on a fave spring flower - the pansy. #Michigan  #spring #garden
  When to plant pansies in Michigan?  Once winter earth's totally thawed and the soil's less saturated, pansies can be safely planted.  Mid April is normally safe for cold hardy planting in Michigan.  Before planting, harden ...

From another article from the New York Times in ongoing coverage,  “G.M.'s decision-making, structure, process and corporate culture stood in the way of safety.”

Getting more complete view of the good, bad and the murky is useful to help plan realistically for what 2015 and 2016 may bring for hiring and business planning. ~  Deb
It now appears that soft numbers in 2015 on consumer spending, durable goods orders and industrial activity were telling us something meaningful.    The nation added only 126,000 jobs in March, while the unemployment rate was unchanged at 5.5 percent. Those terrific numbers from January and February now look a bit less terrific, as revisions subtracted 69,000 positions from the previously reported job gains. In a silver lining to the soft numbers...

This is a welcoming, grace-filled church with a strong sense of mission and many programs and services that are offered to the community. The music program is robust, the children's programs are many, and there are a multitude of ways to give back here. It's also a place to simply experience the joyfulness of biblically-rooted traditional and contemporary, spiritual worship services. This is also a Reconciling in Christ congregation. I'm glad to be a part of it.

Highly recommended! It is usually a challenge to find a cleaning services that is trustworthy, high quality, reliable and affordable. Paula's Cleaning wins on all accounts! I've known Paula and her team for over 10 years. I count myself as fortunate to have such great service from them over many years. She's also helped me find the resources I needed for one time, special cleaning projects connected with a recent move. Great service and trusted!

Convenient. Extended hours are nice too. Easy access. Note that two lights that I report two months ago as burned out had not yet been replaced. Hopefully they will be replaced soon, for safety's sake.
