The Apprentice Will Rebuild America’s Middle Class

Yes, this is a play on the president’s once-successful television show, but it is really about something more important: the country’s growing recognition that college for everyone is a failed idea. Apart from the unconscionable expense involved and the failure of higher education to prepare its graduates for the jobs market, this recognition also reflects a clear fact of life: not everyone wants or needs what college has to offer. Many of those who have gone four years or more and saddled themselves unproductively with huge debts would have been better off learning a trade. So also would American business, for the economy’s most acute need these days is less for new BAs than for trained technicians, what employment economists refer to as the “semi-skilled” or “middle-skilled” worker.   

In responding to this individual and economic need, the United States

Microsoft’s CEO Just Taught a Mini Master Class in Leadership. Here Are 4 Takeaways

You’re CEO of one of the largest companies in the world. You need to make big changes. Whom do you turn to for advice? 

You ring up Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella, of course. And you hope he takes the call.

That was the recent situation of Volkswagen CEO Herbert Diess, whose company is in the middle of major change. Volkswagen is reckoning with a transformation of its entire industry–from hardware (manufacturing) and a focus on car owners, to a software-led, mobility-first center of attention. All of this while trying to rebuild an organizational culture still reeling from the company’s global “Dieselgate” scandal from just five years ago.

So, Diess called up Nadella, well known for leading a major turnaround at Microsoft in recent years. Speaking from his own experience, Nadella explained how his company was able to repair a broken organizational culture, while simultaneously skyrocketing the company’s share price.

Kayleigh McEnany once praised Biden as a ‘man of the people’ who resonates with “middle class” over ‘tycoon’ Trump

As White House press secretary and before that a spokesperson for the Republican National Committee and Trump campaign, McEnany has been a relentless critic of Biden. She has mimicked many of the President’s attacks on the former vice president calling him “sleepy” and “a radical socialist.”

But in August 2015 interviews reviewed by CNN’s KFile, McEnany said Republicans would run into a problem in a potential race between Donald Trump and Biden. At the time, Biden was considering a run for the White House.

“I think the Republicans run into a problem if it is Joe Biden and if it is maybe a Trump on the other side,” McEnany said on local New York’s AM970. “Because Joe Biden, one of the things he is remarkable at is really kind of being a man of the people and resonating with middle class voters. Feeling like — coming off as human. His … Read More

How Trump Took the Middle Class to the Cleaners

Donald Trump is gifted at marketing stodgy, old-line Republican policies as though they’re bold, transgressive, and new. Think of it as policy laundering. And nowhere has this deception been executed to more damaging effect than in Trump’s handling of the economy.

As a candidate, Trump positioned himself as a different kind of Republican. With all the integrity of a late-night infomercial host, Trump rinsed away the taint of decades of GOP economic mismanagement. In a spin cycle, he promised his plans would bring prosperity to a long-overlooked working class. But what Trump ultimately delivered is what all Republican presidents have delivered since Ronald Reagan: bubbly new wealth for the already rich, while putting the middle-class through the wringer.

This cycle has played out twice in plain view: First with Trump’s 2017 tax cut, which showered wealth on the richest, offering the middle class a drop in the bucket, and now … Read More

For business class seats, an airy, spacious future is being designed

(CNN) — There’s an airy, spacious, futuristic seat coming to business class, with all-new scientifically engineered structures and materials borrowed from Formula 1 cars.

It’s a completely new high-tech monocoque called Airtek from JPA Design, the people who redefined business class for the modern age a decade ago, and it’s going to change the way business class cabins look and feel.

What this new monocoque revolution means when you travel is more space, lighter seats leading to a smaller carbon footprint and more reliable seats with fewer moving parts to break.

“A monocoque is a term and approach inspired by the automotive racing industry. It’s really a unification of structure and other components that are around it — rather than having an independent metal structure, independent composite furniture, independent seat, independent frame, all these all these different parts — by unifying them into a single highly efficient composite body with
