Generalist vs. Specialist
I read a great article in HBR today in which the authors, Wanda T. Wallace and David Creelman, discuss what to do if your leadership role demands dealing with team members who are much greater experts in their domains than you could hope (or have time) to b...

+Zaid El-Hoiydi I've worked with specialists as PM before and they've been pretty ineffective in their performance as I saw it. The thing with specialist PMs is that, more often than not, they tend to concentrate on areas that they are comfortable with (viz. their own area of expertise) to the detriment of other parts of the job that might need their attention.

Got my OnePlus Power Bank yesterday
It looks really sleek. The sheen on it in the pic is because I haven't yet taken it out of its plastic wrap - I'm just scared that I'd scratch its beautiful finish. And speaking of finish, the silky white finish is reeeeeeeally smooth and, well, silky. I love the feel. Just need to test it out now to see if the 10000mAh claim is true.

Beginning Statistics  - 
 
Confidence Interval (Noob here, so please bear with me!)
So I have this question:
A client wants me to find a budgetary estimate for a project in such a way that the final cost of the finished project will fall between -15% and +25% of that initial budgetary estimate. There are about 52 different components of the project and I can estimate the budget for each component within a certain range. (for example, I can say that item 1 will cost between $1000 and $1150, Item 2 between $1500 and $1800, and so on.) How do I do this?

I'm late to the party, but you might consider if these cost estimates are correlated. That could have a big effect of the resulting confidence interval.

This is really an Operations Research problem, trying to optimize the multiple objectives of cost and variance, with constraints on the number and selection of parts.

+paul beard Definitely. However, many times specialists get promoted to the job because management thinks that if the person is good in one area (s)he will be able to manage the whole project - most of the times the skills required to work well in one area of specialty does not translate into managing well the disparate parts of the whole project.

One of my daughter's earlier work. She painted this portrait of her brother a couple of years ago as a high school sophomore. Mixed media, about 12"x 16".

What I hope most of all is that they do not take away the great privacy features of the CM11 that we currently enjoy - things like privacy guard, blacklist, etc.

Live music after about 9pm. Food was okay. The local beef was no worse than the so called imported beef. Waitresses and the receptionist girl were tightly dressed hostesses more than wait staff. Mostly men among the diners, which was quite understandable.

Tripadviser recommended (they say) but not that impressive. I asked for ossobucco but they didn't have it. Had a fish dish instead. Opening bites tasted good but after a while most of the flavor was gone.

Great Lunch Option. Decent size portions, very reasonable price.

Very good Lebanese food. The food, being grilled, is mostly on the dry side so don't forget to ask for a plate of their baba ghanouj (spl?) to accompany the bread. Lamb chops were perfectly cooked and juicy. The price is also right. The quantity is huge so our family of four was able to eat to their fill with two entrees and some side dishes for about $65, tips included.

Room size is good. Location is great. Included breakfast is okay. Two weird things: the wash basin, which usually resides in the bathroom, is in the sleeping area, so you or your fellow travelers have no privacy while you gargle, brush your teeth, put on your makeup, and such. This alone will make me avoid this hotel in the future. And, two: the reading lamps over the beds will not work unless the brighter overhead lights are also on. Let me know who the architect is so I may make sure never to hire him (or her).

Went there based on reviews here. Had the roast duck as recommended. It was too dry and leathery. The accompanying items - mashed potato, baked apple and some slaw - were too small for the fairly large portion of the duck. The owner and the wait staff were very nice though.
