Hire People with Common Sense and Good Critical Judgement

Guest post by Stan Silverman: During a recent event to launch my book, Be Different! The Key to Business and Career Success, I spoke about the importance of hiring people with common sense and good critical judgment because at some point, you want them to violate policy when it is in the company’s best interest to do so.

Kitchen of the Week: A ‘Frankensteined’ Historic House in Philadelphia’s Fishtown, Before and After

It was a gray waxed canvas tote that first caught my eye thanks to its leather strap made from a World War II gun sling. That was at a trade show several years ago, where Margaux and Walter Kent of Peg and Awl were also showcasing wooden bath trays, “apothecary cabinets”, and rope tree swings, all of which looked as if they had been created by nostalgists with very good taste. “Our work is made from old things found and recovered from misfortune and neglect,” they explain. “When the old eludes u...

Doctors Turn To Twitter and TikTok To Share Coronavirus News

In a sign of the times, doctors are effectively waging a two-pronged fight against coronavirus: one part takes place in overcrowded hospitals and the other takes place on noisy social media platforms as they work to combat what the World Health Organization has declared an infodemic with accurate, authoritative voices.

Watch Online 75 Short Films from 2020’s South by Southwest Festival

South by Southwest, one of America's biggest cultural events, won't happen this year. The cause, of course, is the coronavirus pandemic, its own status as an event unprecedented in our age evidenced by the fact that South by Southwest has never in its 33-year history been canceled before. When SXSW, as it's now known, launched in Austin, Texas back in 1987, it did so purely as a music festival; cinema came in 1994, when it became the "SXSW Film and Multimedia Conference." Since then quit...
