Reality check.
Huggy Rao and I have been reading and talking about charter schools for our scaling-up excellence project. Charter schools come in many forms, but the basic idea is that these often smaller and more focused schools are freed from many of the usual rules and constraints that other public schools face, and in exchange, are held more accountable for student achievement – on measures like standardized test scores, graduation rates, and the percentage...

Mammatocumulus is a relatively rare cloud formation where a cellular pattern of pouches appear to 'hang' underneath the base of another cloud (usually cumulonimbus.)

It's name means 'mammary cloud' and refers to its resemblance to udders.

As I said, It's relatively rare compared to other cloud formations and nobody is actually certain as to the mechanism that causes it. It appears in various forms, some where the hanging pouches are more obvious than others.

In Regina, Saskatchewan however, there have been two classic examples  recently, within two weeks of each other.

The first on June 12th showed clusters of pouches of varying shapes, whereas the second on June 26th was characterised by the pouches appearing to hang in ordered files.

I hope you'll agree that both look incredible.

I was intrigued to see the new study that shows companies perform better when they have women on their boards. Check out this story and video at CNBC. Here is the upshot: "Credit Suisse analyzed more than 2,500 companies and found that companies with more than one woman on the board have outperformed those with no women on the board by 26 percent since 2005." This result becomes even more compelling when you pair it with a rigorous study done a c...

What you see here is a street and a plain stone bench, both partially covered by a chalk drawing. The drawing disappears in places and at one point seems to bump into a metal pole.

My colleague Jeff Pfeffer and I have been writing about the dysfunctional internal competition at Microsoft for a long time, going back to the chapter in The Knowing-Doing Gap (published in 2000) on "When Internal Competition Turns Friends Into Enemies." We quoted a Microsoft engineer who complained there were incentives NOT to cooperate: "There are instances where a single individual may really be cranking and doing some excellent work, but not ...
