33 ways to speak better English – without taking classes If you’re reading this, I imagine you want to speak better English and communicate in a more confident and competent way. When we communicate effectively we are able to express our ideas and opinions, share experiences, and build relationships with others.

In the modern world, we communicate across borders. English is the closest thing we have to an international language. 7 Tactics for Open Innovation The last decade has seen the rise of collaboration as a by-word for innovation success.

The Whole Earth Catalog Effect [Header = Intro] In the opening pages of The Electric Kool-Aid Acid Test, Tom Wolfe describes “a thin blond guy with a blazing disk on his forehead,” wearing “just an Indian bead necklace on bare skin and a white butcher’s coat with medals from the King of Sweden on it.” This guy is Stewart Brand, a Stanford-educated biologist and an ex–Army paratrooper turned Ken Kesey cohort and fellow merry prankster who, in 1966, at age 28, had launched a nationwide campaign to convince nasa to release for the first time a photo of the entire planet taken from space. (He made buttons reading “Why Haven’t We Seen a Photograph of the Whole Earth Yet?” and hitchhiked around the country selling them.)
Apple on Thinking Differently: Apple’s ‘s 1997 ‘Think Different’ Advertising Campaign I decided recently that it’s time to get this blog focused a little more on … helping people think differently. So, I’ve been thinking quite a bit lately about just what exactly it means to “think differently” (and I list 12 ways to think differently below). The meaning of ‘think differently” is not as simple as it sounds! Filling a Much-Needed Void : real women Excuse me while I throw this down, I’m old and cranky and tired of hearing the idiocy repeated by people who ought to know better. Real women do not have curves. Real women do not look like just one thing. Real women have curves, and not. They are tall, and not. They are brown-skinned, and olive-skinned, and not.
10 People Share The Mistakes That Cost Them A Job Offer When it comes to fear-inducing situations, job interviews are right up there with public speaking and first dates. In fact, a recent survey of 1,000 job seekers found that 92% of people feel interview anxiety, citing doubt over their qualifications, whether they’d be able to answer questions correctly—and even if they’d make it to the meeting on time. Frankly, this stat should come as no surprise. After all, you’re trying to build rapport with strangers in an unfamiliar place, you’re being put on the spot—and there’s a lot at stake from this one encounter. But in order to really rock that interview, you’ve got to push the fear aside and boost your confidence.

Whole Earth Catalog The first color photo of Earth, imaged in 1967 by the ATS-3 satellite, was used as the cover image of Whole Earth Catalog's first edition. The Whole Earth Catalog (WEC) was an American counterculture magazine and product catalog published by Stewart Brand several times a year between 1968 and 1972, and occasionally thereafter, until 1998. The magazine featured essays and articles, but was primarily focused on product reviews. The editorial focus was on self-sufficiency, ecology, alternative education, "do it yourself" (DIY), and holism, and featured the slogan "access to tools". While WEC listed and reviewed a wide range of products (clothing, books, tools, machines, seeds, etc.), it did not sell any of the products directly.
