In checking my drawers, I have at least 20 different designs, about half associated with podcasts and publications I’m connected with.

      To describe “unknown” events like Harvey, the U.S. is diving into the semantics of weather

      As the rains kept falling, the superlatives flowed; then language itself was flooded. “Unprecedented.” “Unknown.” “Beyond anything experienced.” “One-thousand-year storm.” Gov.

      Among those affected by Tropical Storm Harvey’s unprecedented flooding of Houston are likely thousands of survivors of Hurricane Katrina’s 2005 strike on Louisiana, who in some cases are once again seeing their homes destroyed by rising floodwaters.

      Getting smart people into your company is hard enough. Turning them all into great collaborators and risk-takers is even harder.
