new report ranks america’s governors on policy leadership and pandemic response

BEGIN ARTICLE PREVIEW:




ARLINGTON, Va., Oct. 20, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — The American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC) today released the first ever Governors ranking, the 2020 Laffer-ALEC Report on Economic Freedom. The scorecard ranks America’s 50 governors based on policy performance and result, as well as executive leadership before and after the start of the COVID-19 health crisis.”State executives implement policy and respond to crisis in dramatically different ways,” said Reagan Economist Dr. Arthur B. Laffer. “At such a critical decision point, voters need fact-based, nonpartisan data to judge their leaders and hold them accountable. The objective data voters need is all about economics, and it’s all found in this ranking.”Each governor is awarded an overall rank, a results rank and a policy rank, which is expanded to list the exact criteria used so readers can clearly identify how their state leader stacks up and why. Governors and taxpayers can also use the criteria to determine state policy areas that need improvement, such as tax and spending policy, handling of federal funds from the CARES Act and economic competitiveness data. The 20 variables used to rank the governors equip readers, voters and taxpayers with an objective analysis so they can make an informed opinion.This ranking shows …

Why humour should be taken seriously in leadership – CMI

why humour should be taken seriously in leadership – cmi

BEGIN ARTICLE PREVIEW:

What would you pay for something that instantly reduces stress and puts people at ease and shows off your  judgment, experience and confidence? I bet you’d pay pretty highly, wouldn’t you? Well, here’s how to do it – and it won’t cost you a penny:
Use your sense of humour.
Let’s be clear, this is not about laughing at other people. Usually, good leaders start by laughing at themselves. This is called humility. You can see these people at work in meetings; they’re the people who speak last, often the ones encouraging others to speak as well. They know that the leader’s job is not to be the smartest person in the room (or on the Zoom call). The leader’s job is to make everyone else feel like they’re the smartest person in the room. They don’t need to take the credit for themselves because they are confident in their position.
It’s particularly important for the leader to create an environment where stress is managed and people enjoy their work. Why does that matter? Surely, capitalism’s job is to grind people into a fine powder in the pursuit of profit? If it …

SparkOrange was the highest ranked of five Syracuse companies on Inc. magazine’s list of America’s fastest growing companies in 2020. The ranking in August reported SparkOrange had a 650 percent three-year growth rate. It was SparkOrange’s second year in a row on the list.Aliza Seeber co-founded the company in January 2013 with Derek Vargas. Their idea was to start “a socially conscious tech business in Syracuse that would create jobs in the area for years to come.” They started SparkOrange in The Tech Garden, moved to space above Kitty Hoynes in Armory Square, and in August moved to The Dietz building at 225 Wilkinson St., just west of downtown Syracuse. Covid-19 has meant that everyone mostly works remotely. Seeber is the managing partner and chief technology officer.SparkOrange is a “Salesforce consulting partner” and marries technology to business needs. What does that entail?“Salesforce is a tool you purchase, like Microsoft Word or other types of tools if you’re familiar with an old Access database or SQL or things like that,” Seeber said. “It’s a customer relationship management system. You buy it to manage data and different business processes.”Typically, you’re buying licenses to a prebuilt tool, …

BEGIN ARTICLE PREVIEW:

Gen Z is getting its reality TV fix online, and beauty brands are following its lead.This is especially true of Morphe, which announced a partnership last week with Ashley Strong, the winner of James Charles’ reality competition “Instant Influencer.” After leveraging gifted product placement in the popular YouTube Originals show, which launched in April, Morphe enlisted Strong as the face of its new holiday capsule collection that went on sale online and in stores on October 15. This new promotion is the latest example of brands’ marketing adaptations for Gen Z. 
“TV is really moving to YouTube,” said Caroline Shin, the director of influencer relations at Morphe parent company Forma Brands. “We’re such a socially driven brand. We’re going to explore every content platform to really promote this. Ashley has a strong platform, as well, so we’ll be collaborating with her on tons of content.” 
Product placement in the show gives brands “credibility,” said Lena Young, the communications director for influencer marketing platform Klear. Strong “has probably been able to connect with James Charles’s audience and then transition it to her audience, so you will have an extremely loyal audience that’s dedicated to this person …

Letter: Concerned By Trump’s Lack Of Leadership | Current Publishing

letter: concerned by trump’s lack of leadership | current publishing

BEGIN ARTICLE PREVIEW:

Editor,
I am a U.S. Navy veteran and a Carmel resident. I am very concerned with the direction of the 2020 presidential campaign by Trump and the RNC. Trump’s tweets are clearly irrational, even disconnected from reality. Consider his comments on wearing masks, his approval of extra-judicial punishment by killing, his push to arrest his political opposition and not accept election results if he loses. Consider his ugly and persistent attacks on women, veterans and journalists. When asked about his agenda for the next term, he cannot even articulate one,
Under Trump’s lack of leadership, over 215,000 Americans have died. Trump and the RNC take no responsibility.
I served in the military to protect our democracy. Vote for an America where citizens need not fear losing their rights because Trump and his party do not like their color, gender or occupation.
Michael Swanson, Carmel
