The futurist: Countdown to the crash

Worshiping at the Altar of Technology can be as reality distorting as any other myths humans have created. I did not see the depth of automated trading problems until you explained. Unfortunately, most proposed "solutions" are tainted by political, trade, or economic propaganda. By john Tahoe on 2014 07 10

Rundles wrap up: Prepare for fracking fatigue

Great article! Wonderful that fracking creates so many jobs. I am not sure how those people will be able to work when there is no planet to go to work on. Really? We are told fracking is good because it creates jobs. So go ahead, destroy the environment as long as we make money! Totally illogical thinking. Greed over everything in this country, including the health of the planet and the people living on it. By Elizabeth on 2014 07 10

Drama works at the office

"How to avoid becoming 'that girl'"? Would have been better to say "that person", I have known males that have caused the same havoc. Gossip is something that hurts the company at all levels, and it appears to be gender inclusive. By Debbie on 2014 07 08

Crafty bean scene

28 years ago, one of my first clients was a woman who complained to me that her Italian home espresso machine couldn't create the same Americano she got from the local barista. Her beans were high quality, fresh and ground to perfection. The mechanical elements of her conveyance worked without a hitch. Missing key ingredient: pure water. By The Big Drip on 2014 07 07

Drama works at the office

I think salary secrecy is an attempt to avoid some of the drama in the work place as opposed to keeping anybody down on the pay scale. In many businesses, its very seldom that any two people do the exact same job or have the exact same responsibilities. And face it, everyone does not perform at the same level. There are numerous sources for employees to find out what kind of pay ranges there are in the market place. They have the option of negotiating a better wage or leaving for greener pastures. If the compensation is acceptable to the employee for the job performed, what difference does it make what someone else in the company is paid? By John Gimple on 2014 07 02

Drama works at the office

As a small business owner myself, I understand the importance of leading a drama-free workplace but rather than "dissing" a former employee for revealing her compensation to co-workers, why not embrace the opportunity to have a frank discussion with remaining employees? It seems like a great opportunity to open a discussion about developing skills, increasing productivity, and giving clients/customers more value. By Casey on 2014 07 02
