Some thoughts: “Why I don’t think the Orlando massacre was a terror attack” https://medium.com/@bish.s/why-i-dont-think-the-orlando-massacre-was-a-terror-attack-c17c32ad4d0
The purpose of a terror attack is to terrorize people. No one, except the politicians — and they don’t really count, do they? — felt any…

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.

Google, it seems my account is tracking another device that is NOT MINE. It periodically asks me about places that I have never been to (like the one in the screen shot below). What's going on?

I had a similar thing this morning. Could it be that Google thinks you're going to the Christmas sales?

+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.
