The Hill Goes Easy On John Solomon In Review Of Ukraine Disinfo Columns

The Hill held back from squarely addressing the actions of its former columnist John Solomon in a long-awaited review released Wednesday morning, declining to address factual inaccuracies in Solomon’s 2019 series on Ukraine. Instead, the D.C.-based news website turned its gaze towards an arguably less consequential aspect of the fourteen columns that Solomon published last year: the way the articles blurred the distinction between opinion writing and news writing. The Hill launched a review o...

Free Book Excerpt: Ignore Your Customers (And They’ll Go Away)

  Businesses all agree: you must serve customers well. But in today’s always-on digital ecosystem, this has been ramped up to the umpteenth degree. If you ignore your customers on the many different channels in which they communicate, they might just go away — for good. Micah Solomon’s book, Ignore Your Customers (And They’ll Go Away), hammers this point home.  A few weeks ago I reviewed his book and gave it a 5-star rating. (Read: Review of Ignore Your Customers) And now we’re excited to bring...

More Than a Love Poem—What the Song of Solomon Reveals about God’s Design for Marriage

By Walter C. Kaiser Jr. Marriage comes as one of the gifts from our Creator’s hands to us mortals—we who are made in his image. The idea of one man and one woman being joined together in matrimony and in a covenant with each other, as well as simultaneously in covenant with God ( Prov 2:17 ; Mal 2:14 ), is central to this teaching. It is one of the great foundational teachings of Scripture.  God presented it at the very beginning of his revelation in Scripture: The man said, “Thi...

Random Excellence: Giants?

Might call this "random interest" rather than excellence, but it's curious. You might want to look at the picture carefully before reading on. We were talking about the novel Giants in the Earth the other day, and I ran across the old snapshot above on a site called Ipernity. The original poster, Alan Mays, was given it as a Christmas present. A few different elements conspire to create a visual illusion. The small size of the tractor and the boy driving it, the looming hill in the background, ...

Ecclesiastes 1:3-11

Ecclesiastes 1:3-11   (3) What profit has a man from all his labor In which he toils under the sun? (4) One generation passes away, and another generation comes; But the earth abides forever. (5) The sun also rises, and the sun goes down, And hastens to the place where it arose. (6) The wind goes toward the south, And turns around to the north; The wind whirls about continually, And comes again on its circuit. (7) All the rivers run into the sea, Yet the sea is not ful...

Stream: Moaning, ‘Fall in Love’

The new single from L.A. trio Moaning is about love, and frontman Sean Solomon really, truly wishes he could sound optimistic, but … well, he calls it “a bummer of a song lyrically, but it’s pretty fun to dance to.” That’s not false advertising. As on their January single “Ego,” Solomon and bandmates Pascal Stevenson and Andrew MacKelvie craft a propulsive post-punk sound fueled not by stabbing guitars but by insistent synths and stuttering beats. It’s a tack they’ve adopted on their sophomore a...

Wednesday of the Fifth Week in Ordinary Time

“Who knows what evil lurks in the hearts of men?” So goes that famous line from the comic book character The Shadow and how apt a summary for today’s Gospel passage. The Pharisees emphasized much on rituals and rules more than they taught principle and meaning of what those rituals and rules meant. They and the people they preached to were so caught up with these rituals and rules that they neglected the spiritual sustenance of their own souls. We can go to Mass and pray the same prayers e...

Tuesday of the Fifth Week in Ordinary Time

One need not go to Jerusalem, Lourdes or Fatima to find God and discover his presence among us. Solomon realized this when he offered his prayer at the dedication of the Temple he built for God to dwell in: “If the highest heavens cannot contain you, my God,” Solomon prayed, “how much less this Temple that I have built.” God is everywhere in his creation, for all things come from God and bear his creative presence. All things are sacred. God is present in the Book of Sacred Scripture; we know...

We Only Know A Sliver of the Drive to Extort Ukraine to Intervene in the 2020 Election

Through the Ukraine scandal, there’s been a persistent question about the rush to get Zelensky to play ball and whether similar efforts occurred before Zelensky took office. Josh Kovensky has unearthed new evidence that confirms just that. As has been long suspected, the Trump Team thought they had a deal with Zelensky’s predecessor Petro Poroshenko, an oligarch who became President soon after the 2014 revolution. Zelensky’s election upset that plan and upended months of work by Trump, Giuli...

Fox News warns Fox News about spreading pro-Trump 'disinformation' on Ukraine

An internal report from the Fox News research department warns that several prominent Fox News guests, aided sometimes by omissions from Sean Hannity, have spread "disinformation" about Ukraine. The briefing, written by senior political affairs specialist Bryan S. Murphy and titled "Ukraine, Disinformation, and the Trump Administration," was first disclosed in a series of tweets from former Fox News freelancer Marcus DiPaola, then obtained in full by The Daily Beast.

New Evidence Shows Pressure Campaign Started Earlier With Prior Ukraine Prez

As the Senate votes to acquit President Trump over his bid to extort the Ukrainian government into providing him with domestic political help, TPM has new evidence suggesting that the pressure campaign came far closer to succeeding and at an earlier stage than was previously known. Months before President Trump pressured Ukrainian leader Volodymyr Zelensky to open investigations during the infamous July 25 phone call, henchmen working for his attorney nearly succeeded in doing the same with t...

The Answer is Yes! Now, What Was Your Question?

YOU SHOULD shoot for the moon when it comes to customer service says customer experience guru Micah Solomon. When you are small it is easy to give that personalized service to each customer. But when the orders begin to pour in, the attentiveness begins to slacken. In Ignore Your Customers (And They’ll Go Away), Solomon says that “there’s no such thing as ‘customers’ in the plural. Rather, there’s just one customer: the one who’s being served right now.” He begins with a concept he calls “autom...

Ecclesiastes 7:5-14   (5) It is better to hear the rebuke of the wise Than for a man to hear the song of fools. (6) For like the crackling of thorns under a pot, So is the laughter of the fool. This also is vanity. (7) Surely oppression destroys a wise man's reason, And a bribe debases the heart. (8) The end of a thing is better than its beginning; The patient in spirit is better than the proud in spirit. (9) Do not hasten in your spirit to be angry, For anger rests in ...

Gospel (Read Lk 2:22-40) About a month after Jesus was born, His parents took Him to the Temple in Jerusalem to fulfill the law of Moses concerning firstborns (see Ex 13:1-3).  What was that law?  During the time of Israel’s deliverance from bondage in Egypt, God gave to His people, through Moses, an ordinance requiring that every firstborn child bor...

Inside Goldman Sachs' first investor day, where avocado toast and crab apples were served with tech talk, 3-year plans, and a surprising trading mea culpa

Bank executives gave a series of presentations intended to provide more detail around its growth plans and nascent businesses, and hopefully convince investors that they stock is worth buying.  The stock dropped 1% on the day, and several analysts in the room said they would have liked to see more ambitious targets or some other big announcement.  Attendees were ...

At Long Last, Trump Defense Team Bearhugs Rudy’s Dirt-Digging Campaign

The campaign to dig up dirt in Ukraine on Trump’s political opponents began earlier than some senators had suggested, a lawyer for Trump said on Wednesday, bear-hugging Rudy Giuliani in what appears to be the deepest defense Trump’s team has offered of the President’s outside lawyer’s conduct. Trump lawyer Patrick Philbin made the statement in response to a question from Sens. Susan Collins (R-ME) and Lisa Murkowski (R-AK), two lawmakers whose votes could be key to allowing witness testimony....

A tale of two sons: our families deserve school choice

My child attended Santa Ana public schools, and I am committed to strengthening our district schools. At the same time, I know that district schools are not the best option for every student, and expanding—not constricting—the number of school choices and scholarships in our city ensures that every child has access to a quality education. One of the reasons I know this is because of an Orange County mom named Gisela. In Gisela’s own words, it took “so many years of struggle and heartache to find...

4 Reasons Why You Don’t Make BOLD Moves

We can’t wait for time to open up in our schedules to assess how our strategies are working. Several years ago, I connected with a church wanting to do church differently. They wanted to redefine the impact of the church’s ministry. One of the value statements they lived out was this one: “We make bold moves.” Bold moves? A church? Typically one wouldn’t assume this is a value a church would embrace.  I mean let’s face it—churches tend to be rather religious about practicing and prote...

The cofounder of $1.8 billion PagerDuty explains why the company adopted a 'no a--holes' hiring policy

PagerDuty is a $1.8 billion public company that had a successful IPO in 2019. But the company was almost derailed when it was a tiny startup trying to raise its first round of funding, cofounder and original CEO Alex Solomon recently told Business Insider's US editor in chief Alyson Shontell. In those early days, with only 19 people on the payroll, Solomon had made a classic Silicon Valley mistake and hired what's known as a "brilliant jerk" engineer. After lots of rejection from VCs, PagerDut...

Goldman Sachs’ new board member diversity rule misses the mark

Goldman Sachs CEO David Solomon recently said the investment bank won’t take companies public that don’t have at least one board member from an underrepresented group. The main focus will be on female board members, he told CNBC, because companies that have gone public in the last four years with at least one woman on their board of directors performed “significantly better” than those without. The new rule is set to go into effect in the U.S. and Europe on July 1. While the move is significant,...

Do We Promptly Respond to Christ’s Call?

“When Jesus heard that John had been arrested, He withdrew to Galilee.”  Danger drove Jesus into a land that historically had known great danger and grave sorrow.  Why? Gospel (Read Mt 4:12-23) St. Matthew tells us that when John the Baptist fell into Herod’s hands, Jesus decided to leave Jerusalem. Surely He read the signs of the official hostility that would eventually be aimed at Him, too. As He began His public ministry, He had much work to do. It was not the time for Him to be arre...
