Highlights From a Recent Presentation- Presidential Directive -4

On December 20, 2019, President Trump signed into effect the creation of the National Space Force, pursuant to the National Defense Authorization Act (“NDAA”) for fiscal year 2020.  Section 9091 (2) of Title XVII  of the NDAA provides“ The Space Force includes both combat and combat-support functions to enable prompt and sustained offensive and defensive space operations and joint operations in all domains”.

How to learn anything online?

Last time I wrote about some of my favorite learning and brain training resources, now it’s time to check out some learning platforms for more specific knowledge. Again, I know this is not for everyone, I acknowledge those who are busier than ever this time around and hate these kinds of posts, please bare with me (although the sources in my previous post about learning how to learn could be useful for teaching kids too).

For most of us, social media has already permeated many aspects of our lives, from identifying meals that are Gram-worthy to trying to figure out what new Tik Tok dance everyone is talking about. Others are starting to discover new ways to stay connected while we physically distance.

For this post, I chose to connect with someone in my network who has identified how to best leverage social media platforms for her. This month, we will hear from Tiffany Blackmon,…

Everything Nobody Ever Told Me: How to Prevent Anxiety During Interviews

“To venture causes anxiety, but not to venture is to lose one’s self..” – Soren Kierkegaard I have several colleagues who get really nervous during interviews.  They are all very accomplished in their fields and any organization would be lucky to have them.  One man sweats uncontrollably, to the point where the damp begins to seep through his shirt.  Another colleague loses her train of thought and forgets to make the most salient points about her work.  A third colleague gets so nervous he really is unable to listen to what questions are being asked and he comes across as…
