Others agreed. As digital clocks take over, people get less practice telling time on an analog clock. We’ll help. Here are two…Read more...

Travel, Vacations, and the Issue of Time

Posted: 10/14/19 | October 14th, 2019 When I was growing up, my family didn’t “travel.” Like most modern, middle-class American families, if we went anywhere, it was because we were on vacation — short leisure trips with a fixed start and end, tied to the calendar of the working year, centered more often than not around visiting relatives: to Philadelphia to see my cousins or long road trips to see my grandmother in Florida. Long car rides, nights at big chain hotels, and visits to theme parks...

Robert Iger's 20 Leadership Lessons

ROBERT IGER has worked for the same company for forty-five years: twenty-two of them at ABC, and another twenty-three at Disney, after Disney acquired ABC in 1995—the last fourteen of those years, as the CEO of Disney. He shares it all in The Ride of a Lifetime. Like the biggest, most exciting rides were once called at Disneyland, he says his time as CEO of Disney has been like a fourteen-year ride on a giant E-Ticket attraction. After sharing a bit of his background, he quickly delves into his...

10 Inventive Ideas to Reward and Engage Employees

How vital are rewarding and engaging employees? Employees who are engaged at work perform better, stay longer, and invest more of themselves in their job. However, a Gallup survey found the following: Only 34 percent of the US workforce is engaged in their jobs. 53 percent is not engaged. 13 percent is actively disengaged.   The numbers imply that less than half of US workers strive for high performance while the majority of them only give the minimum to reach expectations. Still, the most al...

Turning Pro vs. Playing College Hockey: Which Is Better?

Not every player is in a rush to play professional hockey. Some elite-level talents are able to prioritize other endeavors ahead of getting an NHL career started. Patience can be rewarded. Such was the case for Alexander Kerfoot. He was born into a privileged household (His father bought the Vancouver Whitecaps FC of Major League Soccer (MLS) in 2002.), allowing him to take his time before earning a paycheck doing what he does best, play hockey. Kerfoot played his junior years in the Briti...

A Multigenerational Family’s Cabin Retreat, Unchanged by Time

This is, hands down, the most romantic story I’ve ever heard involving a house. In the 1960s, Chessa Osburn’s maternal grandparents bought property on an island in Howe Sound, near Vancouver. They hired a young architect, fresh out of graduate school and himself a summer resident on the island (his parents owned a vacation home there, too), to design a small cabin for them. As they expected, he created a perfect waterfront retreat. Less expected, but welcome nonetheless: He and their daughter fe...

H.G. Wells’ The War of the Worlds Becomes a New BBC Miniseries Set in Edwardian England

H.G. Wells began writing the novel that would become The War of the Worlds in the England of the mid-1890s. As a setting for this tale of invasion from outer space, he chose the place he knew best: England of the mid-1890s. Staging spectacles of unfathomable malice and fantastical destruction against such an ordinary backdrop made The War of the Worlds, first as a magazine serial and then as a standalone book, a chillingly compelling experience for its readers. Orson Welles understood th...
