For most of us, meetings are unavoidable, uninspiring, and an overall waste of everyone’s time. But, they don’t need to be.

The way Douglas and Voltage Control look at meetings is in much more of a diagnostic method. What works? What doesn’t? Can we borrow from one approach to make anoth...

Clerisy heresy.

I'm reading by Tunku Varadarajan (WSJ).  [Fred Siegel] sees [President Trump] as a champion of "bourgeois values," under threat from the "clerisy," Mr. Siegel's word for the dominant elites who "despise" those values. He regards Mr. Biden as a "captive" of this clerisy, and running mate Kamala Harris as the "embodiment of it."... By 2012... Mr. Siegel had developed an exceedingly low opinion of President Obama, whom he describes as "a faux intellectual with preacher's cadences and an academic...

Biden's Plan on Tackling Covid 19

Here is just one more reason why Biden should not be elected, it sounds more like to me that he is trying to create the ultimate Big Brother State and make sure everyone falls in line.

Quote: Expand CDC sentinel surveillance programs and other surveillance programs so that we can offer tests not only only to those who ask but also to those w...

A UK model suggests school closures could lead to more deaths after lockdowns lift — but experts are wary of the prediction

A woman disinfects a school hallway. Getty A new peer-reviewed report suggests that closing UK schools may have led to more COVID-19 deaths than if schools had stayed open. But the model is based on an "unrealistic" scenario, experts say. It assumes that lockdown measures are completely lifted after three months, before a vaccine is available. Other studies show that school closures lower coronavirus transmission — potentially resulting in fewer deaths. Visit Business Insider's homepage fo...

Asked to explain why he "end[ed] racial sensitivity training" in federal agencies, Trump should have been able to state clearly what Critical Race Theory is.

At the debate last night — transcript — Chris Wallace led by equating "racial sensitivity training" and "critical race theory" and tossed in "systemic racism":This month, your administration directed federal agencies to end racial sensitivity training that addresses white privilege or critical race theory. Why did you decide to do that, to end racial sensitivity training? And do you believe that there is systemic racism in this country, sir?Trump began well:I ended it because it’s racist. But he...

Governor hopes pro-police push will distract from COVID failures
