Is there a place for in-person training in the future? Yes, and we continue to see value in running such programs in the future. In-person training confabs offer a great opportunity to connect socially with colleagues. Getting the chance to attend the best trainings can be viewed as a coveted reward. And in-person events can be a welcome break from other forms of work. However, it would not make sense to continue to run them as before. They should be augmented so as to be as valuable as digital learning. The simplest ways to do so are to add-on a digital journey or executive coaching over time to accompany an in-person event. But the event itself can also be enhanced to leverage the science of learning in many of the same ways as are more naturally done in a digital environment, such as by weaving MicroPractice into the program. … [Read more...] about I’ve been teaching leadership virtually for 8 years.

The Substitute includes a life-size animation, which was created by the visual effects company The Mill. The 11.5-foot rhino starts as a group of pixels, and over the course of a minute or so, they grow more and more detailed until you can see each thick eyelash and wrinkle. The colossal creature stomps around, huffing and moaning as it traverses a small empty white room with mannerisms derived from real footage of the animals in the wild and an accompanying soundtrack from the same footage. Then it disappears without warning for an eerie few seconds before the process starts all over again. … [Read more...] about Millions of animals are going extinct–and the race to preserve their memory is already on
Turns out, his new button-pressing, ain’t-I-a-stinker type material is about the same as before. (Well, not way before, in the mid-aughts, when Louis would brazenly throw around the N-word.) In Sincerely, he mentions wanting to punch a woman in the face within the first three minutes. He does an offensive accent while imitating a waitress, but not without a setup that plainly states he’s aware he’s not supposed to do the accent. He’s mad that he can’t say the word “retarded” in the exact way he wants to, whenever he wants to, so he proceeds to say it a bunch for the rest of the bit. It’s almost as though the Free Speech Warrior-ing you can get away with after being canceled sounds an awful lot like what Chappelle, Burr, and other comics are currently getting away with, at supposedly grave cancellation peril. So what is anyone even afraid of? … [Read more...] about Louis CK has nothing to lose in his new comedy special, but you do
Here’s how it works: The Pure Humidify+Cool stacks the humidifier, air purifier, and fan components into a tower. As the water makes its way up the tower to be dispersed, it passes through UV-C light and a silver-threaded evaporator (silver has antibacterial properties) to kill 99.9% of bacteria in the water. (If you have a humidifier with a paper filter, that standing pool of water it sits within can turn into a bacteria petri dish that’s humidified and sent back into the air.) The HEPA filter in its air purification system kills 99.7% of air pollutants as small as .3 microns. … [Read more...] about Dyson’s new 3-in-1 fan cleans the air in your home. Is it worth $800?
