Management Secrets: Core Beliefs of Great Bosses. A few years back, I interviewed some of the most successful CEOs in the world in order to discover their management secrets.

Management Secrets: Core Beliefs of Great Bosses

I learned that the "best of the best" tend to share the following eight core beliefs. 1. Business is an ecosystem, not a battlefield. Average bosses see business as a conflict between companies, departments and groups. They build huge armies of "troops" to order about, demonize competitors as "enemies," and treat customers as "territory" to be conquered. Extraordinary bosses see business as a symbiosis where the most diverse firm is most likely to survive and thrive. 2. Average bosses consider their company to be a machine with employees as cogs. Extraordinary bosses see their company as a collection of individual hopes and dreams, all connected to a higher purpose. 3.

Average bosses want employees to do exactly what they're told. Bespoken Art - Art that Speaks Volumes. Oh Beautiful Beer - Page 12. June 14, 2013 | Designed by Marque Brand Consultants June 13, 2013 | Designed by Guru Design June 12, 2013 | Designed by Flint Design Co.

This section examines each of the various OS X releases (Panther, Tiger, Leopard, Snow Leopard, Lion, Mountain Lion, Mavericks) and provides the recommended minimum list of the fonts to be stored in the System folder for that particular release of the operating system in order for it and most third party applications to run properly.

Font Management in OS X

These lists also include the fonts most needed for the web, iLife and iWork. The fonts listed should always be active on your Macintosh for OS X and should not be removed. Note that this first part of Section 1 covers only fonts required in the /System/Library/Fonts/ folder. There is also a root /Library/Fonts/ folder with its own set of required fonts, which will be addressed in the second half of Section 1.

From the font lists below, Keyboard.dfont, LastResort.dfont and LucidaGrande.dfont are used mainly for menus and other system font display purposes; therefore, they are the most important to the OS itself.

The Monster Engine is one of those projects that make me love the Internet for its ability to expose amazing creative talent to a worldwide audience.

What children’s drawings would look like if it were painted realistically

Illustrator Dave DeVries started with a simple question: What would a child’s drawing look like if it were painted realistically? In his own words: It began at the Jersey Shore in 1998, where my niece Jessica often filled my sketchbook with doodles. While I stared at them, I wondered if color, texture and shading could be applied for a 3D effect. As a painter, I made cartoons look three dimensional every day for the likes of Marvel and DC comics, so why couldn’t I apply those same techniques to a kid’s drawing? The Monster Engine is the 48-page outcome from that curiosity, and it looks wonderful.

I project a child’s drawing with an opaque projector, faithfully tracing each line. Below are some of my favorite illustrations from the project. Buy “The Monster Engine” on Amazon.
