The gift of great hires

Employers who make unreasonable demands from potential employees prior to employment deserve no loyalty or performance after employment. Background checks, credit checks, certifications, drug tests and citizenship verification for a 'job' are intrusive and rude and it is time American workers draw the line on this vulgar HR practice.

More on the great AI debate

Well written article. How can boldness be programmed into AI? I have been a life-long admirer of Alexander the Great. How can his boldness be programmed into any AI? Is that even desirable given the fact that even Alexander's greatest defenders are quick to point out that he was a dangerous Psychopath who killed most of his closest friends and associates. how can AI benefit the world when most people in the world refuse to lead, follow, or get the hell out of the way. They simply are there and every organization, military or civilian, must get the most out of these people. Will AI make those of us still working so efficient that most of us will have to be paid to do nothing? Already in our evolution no industry, including agriculture and mining, is labor intensive. I think AI will accelerate this trend. What do you think? By Paul Studdard on 2014 12 15

Measuring success

Todd's comments about metrics AND goal-setting are helpful. The sentence " If you are passionate about solving your customers’ problems and use this as a strategic differentiator, then you better have a way to identify how well you are doing this" leaves us with the question, "What would those metrics be?" How would you measure what success looks like or doesn't? By Mark McCulley on 2014 12 12

Executive wheels: BMW fail

Given theauthor's bias I'm surprised he was asked to evaluate the car. His basic premise that the operating the M4 in the city at normal speeds is very unexciting is flawed. While true, that's not the reason to own this car, and city streets are the worst place to test it. I drove 3 different M class cars at the BMW Performance Center in Spartanburg and it is amazing what they are capable of. I've never driven cars that had the acceleration, suspension, turning, and braking characteristics of the M class cars, while simultaneously allowing the driver to feel totally safe in a very stable, ground-hugging vehicle. As I read the article I surmised that perhaps the author might have the same disdain for the numerous SUVs on the market that weren't designed for city streets either. My conclusion? RIght car, wrong interviewer. Let him test and review 4 cylinder city sedans in the future! By Jerry Maglio on 2014 12 11

Social media is hurting your business

Thanks for the follow up. Figured you might have felt that way. Social Media is like any tool in that if you use a hammer when you should have used a screwdriver - you're going to fail... wink By Sean Campbell on 2014 12 10

Social media is hurting your business

you are right Sean...it can be used effectively to drive the sale forward and it does. I have seen it. I just see people using it just to use it and fail. They gt on social media and wing it. Thanks for the comment. By Liz Wendling on 2014 12 10

Maine attraction

As a native New Englanders, this is exciting news! I hope they are using the "correct" buns for their Lobstah rolls (top split, golden buttered each side) as they do "down Maine". But Utz chips??? That's a Pennsylvania staple! Wise chips or Cape Cod chips would be more authentic. Mmmmmm...now I'm hungry. Good luck on this venture. By Chef Laura on 2014 12 10
