The time Jack Bogle set me straight

My colleague Nick accidentally came across this and I had forgotten all about it. But it’s TIMELESS! I’m so excited this exists… It’s August 2013 and the S&P 500 has just been completely rattled by the sell off in bonds due to Fed Chairman Bernanke’s hint about the tapering off of QE stimulus, which was due to happen later that year. All of a sudden both stocks and bonds were hurting inve...

The Mummy – review

Director: Alex Kurtzman Release date: 2017 Contains spoilers This was the second false start of the Universal monsters’ reboot (dubbed Dark Universe). The first attempt, Dracula Untold, was so unsuccessful that it was allegedly dropped from the continuity. This did not set the cinematic world alight and the Dark Universe again looked unlikely. One issue was the push in both of these films at the action adventure, rather than horror. Whilst they can be used in various ways, the classic monsters ...

St. Cloud State Halts Western Michigan’s Unbeaten Streak with 3-0 Win

ST. CLOUD – A ten-game unbeaten streak for #10 Western Michigan and a perfect home record for #2 St. Cloud State were put on the line on Friday night. Something had to give for these two terrific teams, and it was the NCHC-leading Huskies who got the first laugh of this critical series. Micah Miller scored his first collegiate goal, and David Hrenak made 23 saves with a brilliant effort in net as St. Cloud State defeated Western Michigan 3-0 at Herb Brooks National Hockey Center. Jack, Rya...

A Rising Moral Panic

This is just what I fear: fear itself. See that exchange above. Nick Thompson, the very impressive editor-in-chief of Wired, touted a column by one of his writers who idly wondered whether the #10YearChallenge meme could be a conspiracy created by Facebook to get us chumps to provide it with photos and data to enable facial recognition over time. Just maybe. What if? Except that’s ridiculous, on its face. At its public I/O developers conference more than three years ago, Google de...

Praise For Nick Jensen

from Arthur J. Regner of, "Nick is an excellent defender by the way that we want to defend, gapping through the neutral zone, closing on people in the D-zone," Blashill said. "If you don't create stalls, you spend the whole game in your end. He can create a stall because he's strong and he's tenacious. If you don't gap and end plays early, you got to sort out odd-numbered situations, which is probably the No. 1 way teams score in the league. He can do t...

‘Captain Marvel’ Star Samuel L. Jackson Talks the Origins and Legacy of Nick Fury [Set Visit Interview]

In May 2018, I visited the set of Marvel Studios and Disney’s next superhero movie, Captain Marvel, which was shooting in Los Angeles. On set, we had a chance to talk with Samuel L Jackson, who is reprising his role as Nick Fury in this prequel. He walked in the room with performance capture tracking dots on his face, perhaps to help with the de-aging visual effect that we’ve seen in past Marvel films. Or perhaps they were shooting a scene where we find out how Fury loses his eye, as he also ha...

The Tortoise And The Hare

Aesop has some great fables but my favorite is The Tortoise and The Hare. I was reminded of it yesterday when I saw this chart in my colleague Nick‘s deck for a talk he is giving this week in Hong Kong: That is the installed base of iOS phones vs Android phones globally over the last decade. I have been a long and loud fan of Android’s open (or at least more open) model and an equally long and loud detractor of Apple’s closed model. I’ve taken a lot of heat and ridicule for it over the years a...

Welcome Winter for All Its Worth

When it comes to winter, are you a “love it” or “loathe it” kind of leader? Do you typically warm up to this season like a crackling fire, or weather it like an annual head cold? Does this time of year energize or deflate you and those you lead? I guess what I’m asking is this: based on your demeanor in December, would your colleagues and clients change your nameplate to “Saint Nick” or “Scrooge”? Love it or loathe it, every leader faces winter personally and professionally every year. This annu...
