When Denial Meets Globalization

#globalization #employment #hiring

When I look today at Germany’s ‘Election Super Sunday’ of last weekend I see results pretty much as I expected them to turn out. The big wins of the new right wing party AfD came to no surprise. Blaming that solely on the refugee policy of German Chancellor Angela Merkel is way too short sighted.

Did it play a role? Absolutely. Yet, in my opinion, this was just the symptom of an underlying diffuse fear. The pain people, including the middle class, feel due to the transformation they are going through. Whether blue collar, white collar, or manager, they are all impacted. A transformation of their way of life, the economy, the job markets, or basically everything. A transformation caused by the ongoing globalization. The refugees are the mere trigger that made them react. The drop that spilled the cup.

It’s not just a small change. It’s an upheaval of the world as we knew it. And it’s accelerated by the rise of technology. Software is eating the world at an ever faster pace, And that puts tremendous stress on the system.

The price of failure: Yahoo's Marissa Mayer could leave with $137m
#leadershipfail  

Quite a warning: if you fail as a leader you might have to leave with just 137 M. That hurts!

In a word, Starboard is afraid shareholders may end up having to pay someone to haul Yahoo away.
That about says it all.

With Tesla 3, German automakers are now seeing Tesla as a threat
by Erik Kirschbaum - LA Times
#teslamotors  

No more laughing then. They simply don't understand the big change triggered by technology. Ignoring it is not particularly helpful.

It wasn't long ago when the German car industry was still laughing out loud about Elon Musk and his Tesla Motors electric car company.

How To Build The Self-Confidence You Need To Win At Life
by DARIUS FOROUX - Medium.com
#selfconfidence

Whether you want money, fame, travel, or none of that stuff, it doesn’t matter because it always comes down to this: How confident are you?

Are you confident enough to say “fuck it,” and pursue you dream?

Are you confident enough to say “fuck all this bullshit, I don’t need it,” and stay grounded?

You see? Self-confidence is important if you want to win at life — no matter what you’re after, a lack of confidence will always hold you back.

How to Overcome that Irrational Voice of Fear in Your Head
by Elle Kaplan - Medium.com
#handlingfear  


Whether it’s opening a new business or simply applying for that promotion you’ve been dying to get at work, we have all had moments where our fear of failing stops us from taking the first step towards a better life.

Let’s pause. That seems pretty irrational doesn’t it?

Why do our brains sometimes ignore how talented, successful and fantastic we are and focus instead on our anxieties and fear of failure?

It’s not an exaggeration to say that when I moved to New York City with $200 and a suitcase, I was full of fear. As you …

Do you really want the craven opinions of an acrimonious, derisive satirist?

Pay cable is is not the electorate, e.g., RT w/BM: 1.4M viewers total; DJT: 7.5M votes (3/19/16).

Voters, in part, select POTUS, not comedians. Granted, the last two presidential elections have been a painful farce. Let's hope the next one is no joke! :-)

Why the Syrian refugee crisis is just the tip of the iceberg
by Julia Guillard - World Economic Florum
#refugeecrisis  

If the only refugee crisis that the world faced today were in Syria, it would be challenging and heartbreaking enough. But the tragic truth is that the Syrian crisis is the tip of an enormous – and expanding – iceberg. Many other refugee crises around the world never make it into the international headlines. Indeed, a staggering 86% of the world’s refugees live in developing countries, most of which draw very little media attention.

When you act like you’re important, you only prove you aren’t.
by Jon Westenberg - Medium.com
#style   #class  

I was recently jumping on a flight to do a presentation over on the Sunshine Coast for the team at Spark Bureau. I was waiting in line to pick up a cup of coffee when a couple of “business bros” cut in and leaned over me to order. Young guys with perfect hair, expensive suits and flashy watches.

They’d walked up as if the world belonged exclusively to them and anyone who thought otherwise could go fuck themselves. When I asked them to wait their turn, they looked at my sneakers and my hoodie and told me to“get a fucking job.”

Marissa Mayer Has No Concept Of Money
by Michael Andrew - Medium.com
#leadershipfail  
to the CEO postion. 
Marissa Mayer has no concept of money. Actually, Marissa Mayer has no concept of anything leadership related. The only concept she has is Marissa Mayer.

Yet, worse than that is the Board of Directors who got her into the CEO position.

+Walter H Groth ,  the story of what  was essentially a coup d'ete by a group of three rouge investors who had infiltrated the board a year earlier, is a very interesting one. 
They made approximately a billion dollars from the stock price jump when Mayers was hired, after they sold off at the peak. They subsequently quit the two board positions they had, leaving shareholders to deal with a mis-cast CEO and a failing business. 
It should be a crime, but such as it is for the publicly traded company model, where these "activist investors" (Carl Icahn is the most infamous of this ilk) can hijack a company for their own personal gain.

Donald Trump’s comments are horrific — and telling.
by Hillary Clinton - Medium.com
#womensrights

Here’s the good news: While Donald Trump is a bully, voters will have our say at the ballot box. So if you disagree with his comments, you’ve got to vote. Vote like your health and rights depend on it. Because they do.

All of the Republican frontrunners for president want to make abortion illegal. Now Donald Trump has said how he’d enforce that prohibition: punishing women and doctors.

Donald Trump can try to distance himself from his comments all he wants. But we all heard what he said. As Maya Angelou said, “When people show you who they are, believe them.”

Donald Trump keeps showing us who he is. We should believe him.

Its scary, we do not need another GW!!! However, getting people out to vote and the more murmurings about Trump that favor him, is scary.
No matter what, we will have a new president in office!
Which is least to do the worse!!! Obama had too much on his shoulders when entering, although, commendably he made great strides, in a losing situation as we were up against, 750,000 jobs being lost monthly, banks and stocks running amuck for the rich and hedge funds investors betting against what they sold, mortgages which no longer wish to have their payments made, instead sold the loans as investments.
We do not remember how bad our country was at the time,
We DO NOT  want to see a repeat!!
How do we get people out to VOTE and for whom at this point.
I am vacillating,  but I do know its; not for TRUMP

Introduction

Adventurer
, Entrepreneur, Leader, Thinker

Whatever I do I believe that life at large is a beautiful and exciting adventure, worthwhile enjoying every moment of it. I believe in having a dream and making it come true. I believe that each challenge holds within opportunity and you need to be aware of it. I believe that, when you want to reach what is really possible, you have to strive for the impossible and “boldly go where no one else has gone before”. I believe in an optimistic approach to life.

Mountain climber. skydiver, scuba diver

Engaging in activities like mountain climbing, skydiving, and scuba diving, got me to leave my comfort zone and striving to reach the magic of the unknown territory. These often humbling experiences taught me how to handle the ‘black swans’, the unexpected adversities, when reaching for the stars.

***
I am always looking for new and challenging experiences and going beyond my perceived boundaries. I love to immerse myself in the fields of science and technology, the art of communication, and also exploring the latest discoveries and looking for new and innovative ways to make sense of all that. I love learning, knowing, and understanding the needs people have in different countries with different cultural backgrounds.

Having lived part of my life in different countries and being exposed to their culture rewarded me with invaluable insights into human interaction. To me, beautiful design is the communicator between technology and human beings; technology meeting people where they are. I just love the space, where technology meets communication, creating a remarkable and lasting experience.
