How Bad Managers Can Become Good Managers

The pandemic has the ability to create good managers out of bad ones Image Credit: So would you say that you are a good manager or a bad manager? If, somewhat oddly, you answered that you are a bad manager, I may have some good news for you. As we are all very much aware, the past year has been completely upside down. However, despite creating a great deal of uncertainty about what everyone should be doing and making the job of being a manager that much harder, it may ...

When God Doesn’t Fit into Our Boxes or Compartments

My most treasured college graduation gift is a beautifully restored antique card catalog that I received from my parents. They hid it under flowered bedsheets in our garage until graduation day when they led me by hand to the dark corner of the garage and pulled the sheet from the top with the same fanfare as a magician yanking a tablecloth from a perfectly set table. “Ta-da!” they yelled, and I screamed in delight. It had everything I’d ever wanted. Sturdy legs. Gorgeous brass pulls. Fifty-four...

Researcher Refuses Telegram's Bounty Award, Discloses Auto-Delete Bug

An anonymous reader quotes a report from Ars Technica: Telegram patched another image self-destruction bug in its app earlier this year. This flaw was a different issue from the one reported in 2019. But the researcher who reported the bug isn't pleased with Telegram's months-long turnaround time -- and an offered $1,159 bounty award in exchange for his silence. In February 2021, Telegram introduced a set of such auto-deletion features in its 2.6 release: Set messages to auto-delete for everyone...

Babylon 5 Reboot Coming To The CW From Original Creator

There's a throwaway joke in the video game "Control" about how reboots and remakes of certain genres of television shows are actually the sneaky manipulations of a secretive and sinister government organization, all in an attempt to make an unsuspecting public more receptive to outlandish ideas and -- essentially -- easier to control. It's a tongue-in-cheek jab that's not to be taken seriously by any conspiracy nuts out there who might be reading these words, of course, but somehow that's the fi...

Employee or contractor classifications and other employment tax tips for businesses

One of the biggest challenges for any business, whether new or established, small or larger, is hiring. It's also a challenge for the Internal Revenue Service, especially when companies don't understand or intentionally avoid employment taxes. Money lost from unpaid payroll taxes, both unreported or underreported, is huge, notes a recent Kiplinger's Tax Newsletter, accounting for a large portion of the overall federal Tax Gap. This is the amount of money the IRS is owed, but hasn't been able to...

Single-Season '80s Sci-Fi And Fantasy Shows That Deserve A Second Shot

The '80s were the decade when KITT prowled the streets and Airwolf patrolled the skies, when a school teacher stepped up to serve as the greatest American hero, and when a government scientist took his first quantum leap back in time to put right what once went wrong.But '80s television also boasted legions of less-watched stealth superheroes: phoenixes and probing prodigies and extraterrestrial ex-cons, wizards and warriors, manimals and automen, and voyagers to other worlds. Maybe their shows ...

How Do You Want to Move Forward, and What Do You Want to Leave Behind?

I’m sitting in a booth at a coffee shop with two friends, something that feels like a luxury since it hasn’t happened in so many months. We’re talking about what the future holds, where we’ll go from here, and what we want to leave behind. One friend pulls out a small cardboard box, and inside are blank notecards. “I’ve found new clarity about my purpose,” she tells us, “And I’m going to let certain things go.” She asks us to bear witness as she writes these distractions down, then tells us she’...

One Strange Provision in New Cannabis Law: Employees = Independent Contractors

This week, my colleague Sarah Westby and I published a detailed look at the new legal cannabis law in Connecticut and what it means for employers. I’m not going to duplicate the post here but strongly encourage you to read it. One thing that didn’t make it in the post was strange provision found in one of the definition sections. Before I explain it, let me set the table: As I have said time and again, employees and independent contractors are two different animals.  Think black and white.  Peo...

What is Buying Facilitation®? What sales problem does it solve?

BIG IDEA: Buyers can’t buy until they’ve handled all of their internal stuff and everyone involved agrees they’re ready, willing, and able to bring in something new. With a solution-placement focus, sales and marketing limit us to finding only those who have completed those tasks and deem themselves ready to engage – the low hanging fruit. PROBLEM: The problem is not in getting our solution sold; it’s in getting our solution bought. Buyers have Pre-Sales work to do that doesn’t involve the con...

The Art And Making Of Control Book Review

Control is a 2019 action-adventure video game developed by Remedy Entertainment, and one of the best games I’ve played last year; no mean feat considering there were other major AAA games like The Last Of Us II, Death Stranding and Sekiro vying for my attention and time. Control revolves around the Federal Bureau of Control (FBC), a secret U.S. government agency tasked with containing and studying phenomena that violate the laws of reality. As Jesse Faden (voiced by Courtney Hope), the Bureau...

The Strange and Unexpected Gift of Waiting

This is the waiting room. Welcome. You know this place, don’t you? When we are in the waiting room, we eventually have to make this choice: We can either distance ourselves from God or we can trust Him in the wait. This truth became so evident to me over the last few years, a season when I logged many hours in waiting rooms — literal ones. Waiting for a friend when she had a cancerous lump removed. Waiting for our daughter Anna when she underwent procedures for a health problem. Waiting for m...

Notable new research on criminal justice impact of a safe consumption site

Policies and attitudes toward so-called "safe consumption sites" for drugs may serve as one of many interesting tests for whether the Biden Administration is prepared to take a whole new approach to the drug war.  If inclined to be more supportive of these sites, the Biden folks might want to make much of this notable new research recently published in the journal Drug and Alcohol Dependence.  Produced by multiple authors under the title "Impact of an unsanctioned safe consumption site on crimin...

Including Hackers in NATO Wargames

This essay makes the point that actual computer hackers would be a useful addition to NATO wargames: The international information security community is filled with smart people who are not in a military structure, many of whom would be excited to pose as independent actors in any upcoming wargames. Including them would increase the reality of the game and the skills of the soldiers building and training on these networks. Hackers and cyberwar experts would demonstrate how industrial control sys...
