Simon Slnek was born in England but has spent most of his working life in the US. He is an expert on leadership and management, and his 2009 talk, ‘How Great Leaders Inspire Action', is the third most-viewed TED talk of all time. He has recently turned his attention to extensive research into the Millennial generation
The Millennial generation is a larger and larger factor within the workforce and I think it's unbelievably misunderstood. They got dealt a bad hand and we don't recognise that. I've broken it all down into four pieces:
Vicky Maeijer is a Member of the European Parliament for the Party for Freedom (Partij voor de Vrijheid, PVV), the party of Geert Wilders.
Earlier today Ms. Maeijer gave the following speech on the floor of the EP.
00:08 Last weekend Mr. Juncker couldn’t resist praising Fidel Castro as a hero for many.
00:15 The sympathy the EU has for dictators is significant.
00:22 Under EU leadership the union morphs into a dictatorship without room for aberrant opinions.
00:25 Freedom of speech only applies if you say something the politically correct want to hear.
00:30 That’s the elites in Brussels shining today.
00:35 Denouncing unwanted opinions as racism, xenophobia or islamophobia.
00:41 Nothing is spared to silence the opposition. The elites of Brussels
00:45 continue to tar patriots as extremists,
00:50 equate criticism of the flood of refugees as hatred.
00:53 But chairman, you explain to the millions of voters what is racist
00:57 about protecting your country against islamic terrorists, against illegal immigration.
01:03 What’s wrong with defending your country, your own people?
01:06 Chairman, also in The Netherlands we see that in a political trial the elites
01:10 assault freedom of speech. In a way that befits Turkey.
01:15 My own party leader, the leader of the Dutch opposition, Geert Wilders must defend
01:19 in court what millions of Dutch think.
01:23 Chairman, he won’t be gagged. We won’t be gagged.
01:27 For the time of politically correct looking the other way is over.
01:31 Everywhere citizens are showing that they are fed up with it.
01:34 We are stronger than this politically correct ‘down with us!’ mentality.
01:39 Stronger than this cultural relativism. We are stronger than the political elites.
01:42 Thank you.
“He’s got as his strategic advisor a person who’s a white supremacist,” Warren said on CNN, referring to Trump’s decision to appoint Bannon as his chief strategist and chief counselor.
“Wait a minute, there’s no evidence he’s a white supremacist,” Cooper interrupted. “I mean he obviously … there’s people who are white supremacists who support Donald Trump and who support like Breitbart or Steve Bannon but –”
“I don’t know that you can say though he is a white supremacist,” Cooper said.
A hunter used his shotgun to free an elk that was trapped in a net.
While CNN was gathered at the Carrier plant in Indiana yesterday, waiting for President-elect Donald Trump to arrive to give a speech regarding the deal that kept roughly a thousand jobs in the U.S., the crew decided to joke around about a pretty grizzly topic.
In video obtained by FTVLive, correspondent Suzanne Malveaux was prepping for her live broadcast from Indianapolis. She can be seen discussing what she needs to say on air, what items to touch on, doing sound checks, asking for water, etc.
However, at one point, as they were getting close to going live, a producer can be heard off screen talking about signals she would give if Trump’s plan had landed. It then went south rather quickly.
One person was killed and another injured, according to preliminary data, in the fall of the tree in the courtyard of an apartment house in the east of Moscow, told RIA Novosti on Thursday, a source in the emergency services of the capital.
Watch as this so-called tolerant Muslim walks over to an Italian Christian covenants artifacts and systematically starts destroying them as him and a friend recording the incident cheer and laugh. This is the systematic destruction has been following these Muslim migrants as they wreak havoc across Europe.
Let’s talk about one of the things he did that was actually really positive.
He said, look, your parent company United Technologies has a lot of government contracts. IF you want to get United States government contracts, you’re going to have to keep some of your jobs in the United States.
Now, this is exactly what I’ve been saying to Democrats and President Obama. That you could do this stuff. If you really want to apply pressure, there are a thousand ways to apply pressure.
But they would never do it. I’m sorry, if you’re a Democrat, and you like Obama, I hate to break your heart and you want to hate me for it and that’s okay, but Obama wouldn’t have done that.
That’s not who he is, he is not that guy. And in this case, it is an absolutely fact. Because he is president right now. If he wanted, he could have pressured Carrier. But he didn’t pressure Carrier. He didn’t pressure United Technologies, and he didn’t threaten to take away their contracts. Because he’s not that strong. And he always thinks, his default mode is there’s nothing we can do. You guys don’t understand.There are consequences.
An angry wheelchair bound man goes on rampage by smashing windows when denied a loan. I guess at this point this man just doesn’t care, when he couldn’t get paid he started ramming his electric wheelchair into the windows until they shattered. He just looks like he is done with life and didn’t care about the consequences. He wasn’t screaming or anything, you would think he was calm if it weren’t for the fact that he was breaking shit. Now not only is he not going to get paid but he will be paying for the damages instead.
Guns N' Roses encouraged fans to destroy a piñata of President-elect Donald Trump during their concert at Mexico City’s Palacio de los Deportes on Wednesday night.
Axl Rose and the crew invited fans onstage and armed them with sticks and basically let them go to town on the thing, as TMZ points out.
"Let's bring up some people and give them a fucking stick," Rose said as stagehands helped concertgoers up. "Express yourselves however you feel."
“He spoke to me. He hit a chord inside me, he was talking to the working man. He was talking to the middle class. And you know, we’re tired of being the working poor. We bust our tails and for what? Companies are getting tax breaks, CEOs are getting bonuses and we’re getting the shaft.”
Doocy asked him what he would like to say to Trump. He responded:
“Thank you for taking the time. You’re not even the actual President of the United States yet, you’re the President Elect but you’ve done more in your first three weeks of being elected than the current administration has done in the last nine months for us.”
Democrats hate any kind of a requirement that people prove that they are actually eligible to vote. They insist that “voter fraud” never happens.
They worked their fingers to the bone this year trying to get Hillary Clinton elected, but fortunately for America. Donald Trump won by a big enough margin in critical states that Democrat voter fraud didn’t matter.
Here’s a Fox News report that focused on a number of efforts by Democrats to increase their vote totals fraudulently.
Hillary Clinton is leading in the popular vote by about 2 million votes. Two sources,@TrueTheVote and@JumpVote, have said they will initiate legal action because of illegal aliens – as many as 3 million of them – voted in this election. You can bet your last nickel that every one of them was a Hillary Clinton voter.
KNOXVILLE, Tenn. — Joel Michael Guy Jr. drove up from Baton Rouge, La., apartment last week to join his parents at their West Knox County home, along with his three sisters, for Thanksgiving dinner.
Afterward the sisters returned to their homes. Everything seemed fine during the family gathering, authorities said.
But sometime between Friday night and mid-day Saturday, the 28-year-old Guy attacked his parents with a knife, possibly tortured them and dismembered their bodies, leaving remains in various rooms of the 2,256-square-foot home, according to Knox County Sheriff's Office Maj. Michael K. MacLean.
"Joel placed pieces of the bodies in an acid-based solution in an attempt to destroy evidence," said MacLean, who commands the Major Crimes Unit at the Sheriff's Office.
The solution was composed of normal household chemicals and didn't require special knowledge of chemistry, MacLean said.
"It's the kind of thing you can get off the Internet," MacLean said.
Guy left the house unlocked and returned Sunday to Baton Rouge, MacLean said.
The international human rights organization Amnesty International is slamming Kellogg’s and other companies that it says are profiting from child labor and other exploitative practices.
The new report, “The Great Palm Oil Scandal,” released Wednesday, “investigates labour exploitation on plantations in Indonesia that provide palm oil to Wilmar, which is the world’s largest processor and merchandiser of palm and lauric (palm kernel) oils and controls over 43% of the global palm oil trade.”
Wilmar provides palm oil to Kellogg’s and other producers of consumer goods.
The report states:
Amnesty International found serious human rights abuses on the plantations of Wilmar and its suppliers. These included forced labour and child labour, gender discrimination, as well as exploitative and dangerous working practices that put the health of workers at risk.
To document the use of child labor, Amnesty International interviewed workers, including several children. It concludes:
Some children started working from the age of eight years onwards and all were below 15 years of age. Most of the children help their parents in the afternoons, after attending school, and on weekends and holidays. However, some children have dropped out of schools and work for all or most of the day. Children carry heavy loads, as they have to carry sacks of loose fruits and some transport wheelbarrows full of heavy palm fruit bunches over uneven terrain and narrow bridges. They run the risk of injuries from repetitive movements, carrying heavy loads and from working in an environmental where they are exposed to chemicals.
Tucker Carlson debated the merits of Islamophobia's effect on the diaspora of domestic terrorism with a Georgetown professor that said such a mindset can indeed have implications.
Engy Abdelkader said there is never a justification of an attack like the one at Ohio State University.
But, she said that anti-Muslim bigotry can contribute to a sense of "cultural homelessness" in the Muslim-American community:
"They don't identify with their home country and feel alienated from their new host country," she said.
Carlson disagreed with Abdelkader's contention that FBI data shows there is a greater threat of attacks from "white supremacist" and "right-wing extremist" groups.
However, she said she was referencing individual attacks and not victim counts.
"It's important to realize that Muslim-Americans are your doctors and teachers," she said.
While construction workers sometimes come across interesting historical stuff while digging, what they don’t expect to find is something that is alive and very angry to have been disturbed.
That’s exactly what happened to a bunch of workmen over in Bolu, Turkey, while they were digging a hole in the ground, the U.K. Daily Mail reported.
Video posted to YouTube on Sunday showed a very large, and very angry, brown bear crawling out of the hole that the workmen had just started excavating.
The bear wasn’t too happy with all the noise that was being made by the workmen. The bear was very clearly aggressive when it attempted to climb out of the hole.
That’s pretty understandable. I’d be pretty angry too if someone just broke a hole open over my head and destroyed the place I was staying in.
The U.K. Metro noted that some believe the bear may have fallen into the hole, which was near a chicken farm, but that is only a theory. Ultimately, it may never be known why that bear was in the hole.
Rick Santorum spoke at Cornell University as a guest of the Cornell University College Republicans and the Young America’s Foundation. As with many of the nationwide YAF’s recent campus speech guests, the former presidential candidate and Senator from Pennsylvania was heckled and shouted down by the open-minded young liberals on campus.
This happens from time to time, most often to conservative figures, and there is a good way and a bad way to deal with it. The bad way is any way that President-elect Donald Trump has dealt with it, ever. The good way is the way Trump supporter Rick Santorum does here, as you can see in this video from Legal Insurrection.
He calmly points out that the shouters and screamers are intolerant of opposing political views. He doesn’t invite his friendlier audience members to take a good whack at the loudmouths, he just exposes them for the intolerant, closed-minded, safe space Social Justice culture warriors that they are.
The right way. Nice job.
Apparently he was mad that his phone was missing.
If you didn't believe the rape epidemic in Germany was a real thing, listen to this German woman who describes the DAILY sexual assaults German women undergo at the hands of Muslim migrants that Angela Merkel and fellow liberal politicians welcome in the nation with open arms.
