This doesn't rank with the other big issues that the NFL, presiding over the decline of American football, faces today. It's not a big issue, but it IS another issue for the NFL, trying to keep this last century sport our nation's top sport, with soccer (futbol) on its heels I was watching my team's first exhibition game of the season on TV, and there was something missing: cheerleaders. .

Holacracy Is Not The Answer To Your Employee Disengagement Issues

Dan Pontefract

Holacracy — and what I think is its originating parent, holarchy — however will not solve your organizational disengagement issues. The core issues in today’s organization don’t require the eradication of bosses per holacracy or the creation of overlapping, self-governing circles. (ie.

The Issues

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

Martin, I don't think these issues are fine-hair splitting. These are not easy issues. They are hard issues, and it is not always clear on what grounds they will be decided. In a strict sense, as Richard Hall said the other day, there are no public and private sectors - it's all a blend, so the issue is really in how to manage that blend. And these issues have eminently practical consequences. And this plays directly into the second issue.

Is the Confederate Flag Issue meaningless?

Nine Shift

I'm glad the confederate flag came down in South Carolina, but is this issue meaningless? Here in River Falls, Wisconsin, it's hard to find a confederate flag, but it is easy to find police racial profiling and harrassment. . Our African American grandson, Xaiver, recently discovered some new fatty McDonald's product and tweeted, "It can take down more people than the cops." . Translation: the kids are still worried about their safety, even without the confederate flag flying.

The BBC and the Confederate Flag Issue

Nine Shift

Shortly after the South Carolina murders, the BBC interviewed an NPR journalist covering the story. And the BBC guy is so perplexed as to why people were focusing on the confederate flag, rather than on guns. Because it was a gun, not a flag, that killed our people. . And the NPR journalist is trying to explain things in America. And of course the explanation makes no sense to anyone living somewhere else in the world. And really, it makes no sense here either

The top-ranked issue at the moment is a meta-issue: Revise the voting scheme on the site, to avoid gaming the system. The Broadband strategy initiative of the FCC has set up a site where anyone can pose a topic, discuss it, or vote it up or down. That’s probably a useful suggestion. But it’s good in any case to see the FCC using modern tools to provide open fora
