How to Break Your Bad Work Habits

first_imgThe Wall Street Journal:Two years after becoming vice president of innovation at VF Corp. , an apparel company based in Greensboro, N.C., Soon Yu was approached by one of his bosses, who quietly suggested that he do a 360-degree evaluation. Some of his co-workers were unhappy with his management style. The extensive review included Mr. Yu’s employees and bosses as well as a self-assessment.“It was a really painful process,” says Mr. Yu, who was told that he could be overly critical and unilateral in his decision-making. “But all of these reviews gave me a better understanding of what was driving my bad behaviors.”After some self-reflection, Mr. Yu realized that he’d inherited his father’s tough expectations. He also came from an entrepreneurial background and was used to making quick strategic decisions on his own. In contrast, VF had a very collaborative work culture.Mr. Yu worked with several coaches to break his bad habits. Now, when he doesn’t agree with employees at meetings, for example, he doesn’t react by trying to impose his ideas over theirs. Instead, he links the instances that make him tense to more positive thoughts of his relationship with his wife. The visualization reminds him of how a successful marriage is about collaboration and how that same dynamic works equally as well with his team.Read the whole story: The Wall Street Journal More of our Members in the Media >last_img read more

Groups warn of infectious disease threats in Puerto Rico

first_imgAfter Hurricane Maria hit Puerto Rico on Sep 20, the island lost power, and experienced extensive flooding, leaving thousands homeless and without access to routine medical care. Now, as the waters recede, the Infectious Diseases Society of America (ISDA) is warning that the US territory faces public health threats that need to be countered by immediate funding and aid from the US government.Underscoring worries about disease threats, local officials are reporting leptospirosis infections and deaths in people affected by the storm.Concern over disaster relief”We appreciate that the Trump administration has requested $29 billion in disaster relief funds and request Congress act swiftly, at a minimum, to approve this level of much-needed support,” said IDSA president Paul Auwaerter, MD, in a statement published with Melanie Thompson, MD, chair of the HIV Medicine Association (HIVMA) yesterday.”Additional resources will likely be needed, and we are pleased that federal agencies are assessing additional needs.” The $29 billion is for hurricane relief efforts in Texas, Florida, and Louisiana, and non-hurricane relief efforts elsewhere, not just for hurricane relief in Puerto Rico.Earlier today President Donald Trump tweeted that the US government could not aid Puerto Rico “forever,” drawing ire from San Juan’s mayor and many others who say the president hasn’t treated Puerto Ricans as US citizens.”Indeed, Puerto Ricans and U.S. Virgin Islanders are U.S. citizens and expect the same federal aid and support during natural disasters as the rest of the United States,” wrote Carmen D. Zorilla, MD, an obstetrician from Puerto Rico who penned a perspective piece published in the New England Journal of Medicine yesterday.Multiple public health threatsZorilla said every one of Puerto Rico’s 3.4 million citizens have been touched by the hurricane, and, 16 days after the storm, only 9.2% of people had power and 54% had access to drinking water.As an obstetrician-gynecologist on the faculty of the University of Puerto Rico School of Medicine, Zorilla stayed on the 18th floor of a maternity ward during the hurricane to help deliver babies and offer care to pregnant women. She said that the standing water and heavy flooding could bring more Zika, dengue, and chikungunya epidemics to the island.”The impact of this disaster on morbidity, survival, adherence to treatments, and medical complications has yet to be documented,” Zorilla said.The IDSA named “waterborne pathogens, the spread of infections in crowded shelters, food-borne illnesses, mosquito-borne infections and mold-related illnesses,” as a few of the immediate areas of concern for Puerto Ricans. Moreover, the hurricane has jeopardized access to medicines for patients with HIV and tuberculosis, as well as antibiotics, oral hydration solutions, and other basic first aid care.In an update yesterday, the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) said there are reports of residents obtaining, or trying to obtain, drinking water from hazardous waste “Superfund” sites in Puerto Rico. It also added that raw sewage continues to be released into waterways and can be expected to continue until repairs are made and power is restored.Four dead, 10 infected with leptospirosisAccording to the Associated Press (AP), Ricardo Rossello, governor of Puerto Rico, said at a news conference yesterday that 4 people had died and 10 were sickened with leptospirosis, a bacterial illness spread through contact with contaminated animal urine or contact with the urine via water, soil, or other means.The disease can be spread when people drink water contaminated with animal urine or feces, and without treatment, complications can develop, including kidney damage, meningitis, liver failure, or respiratory distress.According to the AP, many Puerto Ricans have taken to drinking from local streams because water has been shut off for the last 2 weeks.To date, the AP said 45 deaths in Puerto Rico have been blamed on Hurricane Maria, but other news stories estimate that the number is much higher.See also:Oct 11 IDSA statementOct 11 N Engl J Med perspective Oct 11 EPA press releaseOct 11 AP storylast_img read more

Home Country: Glad There’s A Month Called May

first_imgHome CountryBy SLIM RANDLESIt was one of those evenings that makes you glad there’s a month called May. Bob Milford parked his truck in front of the Mule Barn truck stop, then changed his mind and drove the few blocks into town and parked in front of Sarah’s Read Me Now book store and got out.The air was sweet like wine, warm and flowing over his body. The calves out on the Diamond W were healthy and frolicking all over the place and there had only been three difficult births where he’d had to pull the calves, and those were from first-calf heifers, so it was to be expected.And he decided what he needed was to see how the rest of the world was handling a nice dose of spring, so he drove in from the ranch for the evening. Sarah was just locking up and visited with Bob for a few minutes before heading home for supper. Bob leaned against the wall and kept his eye on the square across the street. Two kids were playing with the cannon, shooting invisible invaders and making the world safe for suppertime in a small American town.Dud Campbell and his wife, Anita, were walking across the square, not talking, but just being with each other. Their hands were touching, but there was more there. They were touching each other in a silent way, sharing love and promises silently. Across the way, Doc and Mrs. Doc stood together, looking in the window of the now-closed hardware store. They looked tired tonight, Bob thought. Neither was that young any more.Seeing these two couples made Bob a little sorry he wasn’t married, but he’d tried that once and it hadn’t worked out too well. She lived in the city now and was married to another fellow and had three kids.Oh, he knew it had all happened for the best. He knew it. So he patted the cow dog in the back of his pickup and headed back down the road to the Mule Barn. He would order the special tonight. Maybe some pie, too.Just the right thing for a warm evening in May.Brought to you by A Cowboy’s Guide to Growing up Right, check it out at nmsantos.com.last_img read more

Enjoying Spain’s Diversity

first_img Independent/John Laudando Share Independent/John LaudandoFor our first trip to Spain, we settled ourselves into a tiny town, Cazalla de la Sierra, in the heart of the national park area called Sierra Norte. We had chosen a newly built “hacienda-like” inn, Vega De Cazalla, with a central courtyard, just as one would want in their warmer climate. What we didn’t know was it was on a new road that hadn’t yet received a road sign. The good thing about that unmarked road was the circuitous route we had taken to find it, a route we immediately headed for the next day, exploring sunny, flower-strewn meadows filled with grazing sheep and a beautiful and friendly galloping horse.Every time we ventured out from our little hacienda, we headed for that road, discovering some new picturesque treat each time. We’d park the car and just wander along the quiet road, enjoying the variety of country scenes we found. Or we headed into town, where we had several very pleasant meals at a little restaurant on the square. For breakfasts, we enjoyed the generous array offered at our inn. (Vega De Cazalla was a very reasonable B&B, and even today a room can be rented for only $218 for a three-night stay, up only a slight amount from the $68 we paid per night.)On this trip we ventured forth from Sierra Norte, to Granada (The Independent, August 14, 2018), Cordoba, Seville and points in between before heading back to Madrid for the trip home. We did a lot of driving, on wide roads that skirted immense orchards of cork oaks, and on tiny, twisting hillside roads. But our most amazing foray was to Seville. Seville was celebrating Feria de abril de Sevilla, a weeklong fair/festival that was unlike any “fair” we’d ever been to before.Feria began not as a festival, but actually as a livestock market. Back in the 1800s, people came to Seville to sell cattle and other animals in the spring. Over many years, the market took on a more festive feel, and it eventually expanded from just a couple of days to a wildly colorful six days of celebrations. Today, you don’t find cattle for sale at the Feria — instead, you are treated to an array of horses, carriages, brightly colored casetas (tents), and traditional clothing worn by just about everyone. This means bright, colorful flamenco dresses for the ladies, and the traje corto, or short suit with wide-brimmed hat for the men. And the ladies don’t stop with just colorful dresses — shoes, purses, mantillas, and, usually, a flower in the hair — all are completely coordinated. Much to our delight, this even applied to babies in carriages and strollers. It was like being surrounded by a walking rainbow.One of the most elegant displays we saw comprised a group of gauchos, six young women and two men, who were crossing the street coming toward us. I aimed my camera at them, and they stopped and posed for me — looking like a photo shoot for some high-fashion magazine — then cheerfully went on their way. One of the most entertaining was the young lady, in full regalia, riding side-saddle on the back of a motorbike.We don’t have a real parallel to Feria — it’s far more than a fair — it’s a gathering of clans for dining, drinking, dancing, and delight. Interested? The Feria de Abril starts on a Monday evening roughly two weeks after Easter. The dates vary by year since Easter doesn’t fall on the same date all the time, but it’s usually in mid/late April or early May. In 2019, the dates will be May 6 to 12. The fair officially begins at midnight on Monday, and runs six days, ending on the following Sunday. It happens at the Real de la Feria, which is in Los Remedios to the southwest of city center, next to the river, about a 30-minute walk from the Seville Cathedral. Don’t know the way? Just follow the ladies in their brightly hued, wildly ruffled dresses! Look for the public tents or hire a friendly guide when you arrive.Visit our website at olddogsnewtrips.com, and we welcome your comments on our Facebook page—Old Dogs, New Trips.olddogsnewtrips@gmail.comlast_img read more
