    IT Life Radio: Get Rid of Annual Reviews

    in Technology

    Almost anyone who has gone through an annual review knows they can be a pain. If you're lucky, you've got a good relationship with your boss and you get a raise and maybe a couple of tips for a better performance. If you're really lucky your annual review isn't a surprise, because you talk regularly with your manager and get good feedback.


    But what happens if you don't have that relationship? One review every year is like asking someone to drive a car on a highway and they only get to look out the windshield every 10 minutes. Business changes every day. Our responsibilities and priorities change every day. Why should we only get feedback once per year?


    BetterWorks Co-Founder and CEO Kris Duggan thinks there is a better way. We should treat feedback as a daily, low investment, high frequency endeavor. Instead of slaving away for days on one annual review, we should rely on current technology to do small course correcting feedback every day. Duggan will stop by to talk about a better way for managers and employees alike that will make everyone happier and more productive. Learn how to:



    Reshape the way you give feedback
    Treat feedback like a Fitbit
    Get more out of employees and be a better a manager


    Kris Duggan is the CEO and Co-Founder of BetterWorks, an enterprise goals platform trusted by high performing companies to engage, empower and cross-functionally align their work forces. Prior to BetterWorks, Kris was the founding CEO of Badgeville which provides gamification and social engagement solutions to help companies measure and influence behavior. He has a master's degree in business administration from University of California, Irvine. He received a patent for customizable rewards systems in 2011 and wrote and published "Business Gamification for Dummies" in 2013. He currently resides in Palo Alto with his wife and two sons.

    Irate, Tireless Minority - Who Are We?

    in Politics Conservative

    Doing my best to help the Lord set the brushfires of freedom in the hearts of men and to restore America, God willing, to the beacon of freedom she was meant to be.


    Politics: Patriot Act sunsets, USA FREEDOM rises and what does that mean?  


    Religion: Nancy Pelosi says gay "marriage" is consistent with catholic beliefs. She is wrong 


    Doing What's Right: Retired professor weighs in on trangenderism Here's a rebuttal (of sorts -although it was published in 2014 in response to a WSJ editorial piece by Dr. McHugh saying much the same thing.) the comments are very interesting. And the right thing is contained in one of those comments. 


    Here are the Patriot Post links to which I referred in the show:

    How Brandin Cooks won the offseason

    in Sports

    Mind of Mansion Podcast Episode 131: Matt Kelley @fantasy_mansion gets tickled by Mike McCarthy's Jeff Janis feather. 


    Laying low, because it is too early to celebrate Jeff Janis. 


    Bad fantasy analysis cannot hide from the RotoUnderworld Radio audience minions.


    ADOT as a metric has two purposes: 1. charting a player's degraded speed and explosiveness -- see Jason Witten. 2. Providing a fuller understanding of a player's role in the offense. 


    Brandin Cooks' ADOT was low b/c he was playing the Y/slot receiver role, not b/c he lacks long speed. 


    Saints targets lost: 83 (Kenny Stills) + 125 (Jimmy Graham) = 208 total targets. 


    Kelvin Benjamin's College Dominator Rating was TD-driven via red zone jump balls. 


    Brandin Cooks is a better receiver than Kelvin Benjamin by every non-size-related measure.


    Kelvin Benjamin's ADP is currently buoyed by WR size zealots. 


    Brandin Cooks was too young to go motor boating with Rob Gronkowski last year.


    Advanced metrics, prospect evaluations, and fantasy football information were provided by PlayerProfiler.com.

    Get Real! with Mark and Kally - The Laughter Lawyer Meets the Real Patch Adams

    in Health

    Laughter is the best medicine.


    Debra Norwood, also known as The Laughter Lawyer, got to spend a week in the company of the renowned Patch Adams who is known for his work as a medical doctor and a clown.  He is founder of the Gesundheit! Institute.  He has some interesting views on healing and medicine.  


    At one point in his life he felt very suicidal and then enetered a mental hospital that changed him.  He wanted to become a medical doctor and help people.


    Patch went on to start making his one dream into a reality. He believed that the medical system was twisted and that it cheated poor people. So, he decided that he wanted to build a hospital.  His Gesundheit Institute is not completely perfected, but it is up and running. One person said of the Institute: "There, amongst beautiful mountains, hardwood forests and waterfalls, Gesundheit advocates are constructing a wholistic rural hospital and healthcare community based on the vision of what healthcare should be like. That means patient care where laughter, joy and creativity will be an integral part of the healing process. Healthcare will be provided without cost and doctors will carry no malpractice insurance. Doctors and patients will relate to each other on the basis of mutual trust, and patients will receive plenty of time from their doctors. Allopathic doctors and practitioners of alternative medicine will work side by side." 


    You won't want to miss this interview.


    You can follow Debra on her Facebook page.

    THE ROAD HAWGS RADIO NETWORK CLASSIC CHROME SPECIAL GUEST LARS NIELSEN

    in Lifestyle

     SPECIAL GUEST LARS NIELSEN


    For every motorcycle and car enthusiast, the Bonneville Salt Flats hold a special place near and dear to our hearts. The Salt Flats are the home of speed; every year, motorheads from all over the world travel to the state of Utah in an attempt to push their machines and themselves to the limit. Speed is the name of the game, and some of the most incredible pieces of engineering in the world are in attendance to play that game. This week on Classic Chrome, be sure to tune in as we interview our first international guest. Joining us this week from Denmark is Mr. Lars Nielsen, who is in the process of building what is undoubtedly going to be the world’s fastest Nimbus motorcycle. Nimbus motorcycles were produced by the Danish firm Fisker and Nielsen from 1919 until 1960. These machines were powered by a 749cc, single overhead cam, inline four cylinder engine that produced between 18-22 horsepower, hooked up to a three speed transmission with shaft final drive. A stock Nimbus is capable of cruising at 55 mph with a short top speed burst of 75 mph; Lars is in the process of building a rip-roaring example which he will be campaigning at


    Bonneville this year. Lars’ Nimbus is set into a custom, low-slung frame and the motor comes complete with a supercharger. No matter how fast his machine goes, it will likely become the fastest example of the Danish four cylinder in the world. Join us at 7pm Central as we sit down to discuss this incredible project.
