    Hey, Rip Van Winkles, wake up, it’s 2019!

    A happy New Year to all our readers. I wish you all a healthy and successful 2019, and urge us all to be action people, rather than being talkers. Forget Donald Trump and the media circus over which we have no control, and focus on events within our control....

    Obfuscating the facts with the deafening noise of trivia

    It is very sad for me to write my last article before Christmas 2018 in a less than happy and hopeful way. It is a time of family, friends, the future, and faith, which we all look forward to. The four Fs remind us that, as citizens there is...

    There’s no cause to embrace mendicancy and mediocrity

    Over the past 47 years I have been privileged to participate in the practical areas of business leadership/management; and over the last 5 years I have been more involved as a connector between academia and business.
