Leaders Should Use Influence Instead of Power

There are two approaches managers take to organize work of their employees. The first one is an “authority” approach and the second one is an “influence” approach. Using power to manage a team is the way of enforcing employer’s views on the projects, while influence is motivating and encouraging them to take an active part in decision making to achieve better results for the company.

The itemized look on the most proficient method to make a WordPress Blog

A standout amongst the best choice of showcasing correspondence is the Internet. The perceivability of any business or association is essentially to accomplish by beginning a web journal. It can be utilized either by the specialty unit to publicize something or by a distinctive individual to share the thoughts, individual considerations et cetera. You can without much of a stretch find free stages in the Internet. For example, Blogger, TypePad and WordPress. The last one is the best. It is fairly well known among the clients for few reasons.

Local tech reporter has a refreshing lack of understanding of net neutrality

In a column penned yesterday, Boston Globe tech reporter Hiawatha Bray has demonstrated that he lacks even a basic understanding of what net neutrality is or why it's important. I wonder how he'd feel if T-Mobile allowed unlimited browsing of bostonherald.com but charged for data in order to browse bostonglobe.com? You can read his column here.

He doubled down with an equally ridiculous tweet: Read more.

Merry Christmas

Merry Christmas!

Christmas……Don’t get caught up in the guilt of not having/spending enough $$$$$ for Presents and Gifts

If how much you spend, or buying what the persons “wants” determines your Merry Christmas....... stop, think about this; Materialism has bankrupted some people,
Some are on the way there, and some are recovering from it.

If anyone is not pleased with you changing your gift giving habits….. It’s on them.

Verizon downsizing equipment yet paying for high-speed Internet

For over a week, we have had on/off or maddeningly slow internet service. Our internet provider is Verizon. After spending the requisite hour on the phone with Verizon customer service last Thursday, an appointment was set up for 8-11 am this past Friday. The repair reps did not show during that time period, but around 1:30 pm I got a call, stating that our purchased, 'High Speed Internet Enhanced' was too fast for the capability we could ACTUALLY get because of our distance from the Roslindale Verizon substation (we are just off of South Street) therefore, they needed to downgrade the equipment that our service used to be able to handle the slower speed - somewhere around 6-7 Mbps.

Mumps at Boston University

This just in... Boston University is notifying summer students that one of their own was walking around campus July 1 & 2 with an infectious case of mumps, and requiring students to prove (if their records on file with Student Health Services don't already do so) that they're either vaccinated or immune, or they're going to be isolated from campus by the Boston Public Health Commission.

Red Line Shuttle

There needs to be a better system in place for getting people on shuttles buses @ JFK. Pure chaos tonight. Buses showing up and stopping in random spots. People charge for them like animals. There was one night last week wjphen they had a line which was more smoother. I had to wait(6 shuttles come and go) So aggravating Especially when you are trying to catch a bus @ Qui Ctr

Somerville Mayor on the T

Joe Curtatone, in Commonwealth Magazine, points out to the rest of Massachusetts that the Massachusetts economy depends almost entirely on the areas served by the T, and that the private sector isn't going to grow more jobs if we don't have a dependable way to get folks to work.

Joe's is my favorite of 5 takes on the T currently featured on the site.

No T service

Let me get this straight. So T Red Line service has resumed today, but only between Andrew and Alewife.. MBTA Alert states there is no Red Line service between Andrew and Braintree/Ashmont. No word of shuttle busses. Explain to me how this is acceptable. I need to work in Boston and live on the South Shore. The MBTA takes $ out of mtu check each month for me to utilize the train and subway. So I deserve to have service just like everyone between Alewife and Andrew. I feel if you can't run whole line then don't do this! I know I'm not alone on this one.

War on News?

In the last day or so, all the news boxes have mysteriously disappeared from my namesake neighborhood, around Mass. and Huntington. No more Improper Bostonian, no more South End News, no more Bay Windows, all banished from their convenient locations by Symphony Hall, in front of Whole Foods, and near the Green Line entrances.
