platform of the Republican Party for me. I already knew they were against any reform of gun control, immigration, and healthcare. Now I can add to the list freedom of speech, freedom of the press, free enterprise, and big business. Let
Obviously, the RNC wants to control what CNN and NBC say about any possible Democratic Party candidate such as Clinton. They seem to forget that Freedom of Speech is a First Amendment Right. The RNC can’t come up with an equally interesting candidate. I am hoping that CNN and NBC will now refuse to air any Republican campaign ads. We can only hope. (http://clicktotweet.com/fi6Gn)
CNN competes freely against other news networks in a very competitive market. Free enterprise helps keep down costs for the consumers. The RNC does not want that to happen. NRC wants to control the news so only RNC approved propaganda is telecast. That sound a bit like Egypt or North Korea. (http://clicktotweet.com/U00Wo)
CNN is a large company and as such is big business. The RNC wants to control big business and dictate what they can and cannot do. Apparently, the RNC is afraid that such reporting will not be in their best interest.
On a different subject, Jason Nazar wrote an article for Forbes (www.forbes.com/sites/jasonnazar)
titled, Things 20-Year-Olds Don’t Get. He makes some very good points, but I don’t think it applies just to 20-year-olds. I think there are nuggets in the article that apply to everyone. I
wrote about the portion on time in an earlier blog. (check the archives) Here is some more of the article:
“You’re Talented, But Talent is Overrated - Congratulations, you may be the most capable, creative, knowledgeable & multi-tasking generation yet. As my father says, “I’ll Give You a Sh-t Medal.” Unrefined raw materials (no matter how valuable) are simply wasted potential. There’s no prize for talent, just results. Even the most seemingly gifted folks methodically and painfully worked their way to success.”
I think that many talented people are successful. However, there are also many people who just waste their talents. Consider, for example, people like Lindsay Lohan, Anthony Weiner, Bob Filner, and Cory Monteith.
“We’re More Productive in the Morning – During my first 2 years at Docstoc (while I was still in my 20’s) I prided myself on staying at the office until 3am on a regular basis. I thought I got so
much work done in those hours long after everyone else was gone. But in retrospect I got more menial, task-based items done, not the more complicated strategic planning, phone calls or meetings that needed to happen during business hours. Now I stress an office-wide early start time because I know, for the most part, we’re more productive as a team in those early hours of
Studies have shown this to be true. In some cultures, it is customary to have a siesta in the afternoon. That part of the day tends to be the least productive. Here in the US, we consider a siesta a waste of time. Isn’t it a bigger waste to stay at work while half awake. That is how mistakes are made.
