Demystifying Case Interviews Description Many candidates are nervous about case interviews. Because the specific case cannot be prepared in advance -you don't know what the case will be-. The 7 Natural Laws of the Universe « Path to Enlightenment The 7 Natural Laws of the Universe The Law of Attraction is just part of one of the 7 natural laws of the Universe: the Law of Vibration. Of the 7 Laws, it may be the most important in how our everyday lives play out, but all of the laws are in effect whether we are aware of them or not. Knowing what the 7 laws are and how they work can make a significant difference in applying them to create the life you truly desire. The 7 natural laws are in no particular order, but since the Law of Attraction has been discussed so much in The Secret, we’ll start with it. The Law of Vibration states that everything vibrates and nothing rests. Vibrations of the same frequency resonate with each other, so like attracts like energy.

7 Ways to ReWire Your Brain and Become a Better Leader Over the last few decades, studies in neuroscience have shown that you can literally physically rewire your brain. You can change the “default network” you were born with, the one that ensured the survival of our primitive ancestors who lived in a very different world.

How to Make the Most of the World’s Top Photo Feeds in the Classroom From the smartphone Annie Leibovitzes to the Instagram Ansel Adams, it seems that everybody is a photographer these days.

So I got this in my email this morning… They call the Third World the lazy man’s purview; the sluggishly slothful and languorous prefecture. In this realm people are sleepy, dreamy, torpid, lethargic, and therefore indigent—totally penniless, needy, destitute, poverty-stricken, disfavored, and impoverished.

Some still call it “the dark continent” for the light that flickers under the tunnel is not that of hope, but an approaching train.

The Most Connected Woman In Silicon Valley? Even in the fail-fast-or-get-acquired world of Silicon Valley startups, Ellen Levy is a master of reinvention, turning a succession of relatively brief stints in private companies, academia, NGOs, and venture capital firms into a unique role as a super connector, a Lois Weisman of the tech world. Recently departed from LinkedIn, where she was VP of Strategic Initiatives for the past four years, Levy--who holds a PhD not in computer science but in cognitive psychology--started her career at Apple, pre-Steve Jobs’s return. From there, the 42-year-old went on to roles at search engine WhoWhere, Stanford University, the Clinton Global Initiative, and countless advisory boards, becoming a one-woman bridge between the people who are looking for the next big idea in technology and the people creating it. She spoke with Fast Company about her nomadic career, building an authentic network, and why polymaths are the future of innovation. And what are you doing right now?
