5 Ways to Overcome Passive Resistance and Drive Organizational Transformation
Huffington Post - about 1 year
"Organizations are made up of two things. People and everything else. Organizations don't change, people do, or they don't." Ever hear the story of the night in stormy waters where the tanker sees a light dead ahead and sends out a signal 'Change course immediately 10 degrees South'. And gets an immediate reply 'You change course 10 degrees North'. The tanker captain, outraged at this reply sends a message 'I am a 400,000 ton tanker. Change course 10 degrees South!' Back comes a reply 'I am a Lighthouse. Change course 10 degrees North!' Market winds, competitive waters and microclimates within companies, make transformation inevitable in an organizations journey. We are in the world of a connected customer revolution (Vala Afshar) where the customer is interfacing with the brand every day.

Genetic 'Adam & Eve' Uncovered In Surprising New Study
Huffington Post - over 3 years

The findings, detailed today (Aug. 1) in the journal Science, come from the most complete analysis of the male sex chromosome, or the Y chromosome, to date. The results overturn earlier research, which suggested that men's most recent common ancestor lived just 50,000 to 60,000 years ago. Despite their overlap in time, ancient "Adam" and ancient "Eve" probably didn't even live near each other, let alone mate. [The 10 Biggest Mysteries of the First Humans] "Those two people didn't know each other," said Melissa Wilson Sayres, a geneticist at the University of California, Berkeley, who was not involved in the study. Tracing history Researchers believe that modern humans left Africa between 60,000 and 200,000 years ago, and that the mother of all women likely emerged from East ...

Ceske Noviny - over 4 years
Praha - Policisté odhalili v Karlovarském kraji dosud největší pěstírnu marihuany v Česku. Pátrání trvalo několik měsíců a kriminalisté koncem května zadrželi 13 lidí, kteří drogu pěstovali pomocí elektřiny z naftových agregátů. Zabavili 5600 rostlin konopí, ze kterého by podle policie bylo možné získat minimálně 500 kilogramů marihuany v ceně zhruba 40 milionů korun. ČTK o tom informoval mluvčí Národní protidrogové centrály (NPC) Michal Hammer.
