    Awareness - who - what - why & where FACT OR CRAP - Hosted by Craig Sicilia -

    in Current Events

     Tonight we will talk about awareness, what it means to you.  We will talk about support those who say they support you do they.  We will also talk about that isolation that many go through, the abandonment and disbelieve that it takes so long to recover or reestablish our lives after brain injury.  I am going to do an update on the networks stance on balloons which is it is up to the individual groups.  I will share what I have recently learned about balloons the different types and the chemical compound of different balloons not all balloons are created equal.  I will share my perspective on what to me was mass bullying people to obtain ones goals based only what one wants to see.  
    Most important thing is are you making people aware, but even more important what are you making them aware of.   I learned through an anti-balloon organization how much people really could care less about those living with a brain injury.  Being sheltered in our community I forget how harsh people can be and that people will lie and do hurtful things.  A world I try to keep myself disconnected from.  I choose people that live from the heart rather than an ego, 
    Tonight the questions is what’s on your heart.

    IT Life Radio: Working with Millennials

    in Technology

    Welcome to the inaugural episode of IT Life Radio. IT Life is dedicated to all things that matter to IT professionals including career advice, management issues, gaming, new technology and "geek lifestyle." Every Wednesday at 3PM ET we'll have a special guest to talk about one of these topics.


    If you believe the hype, millennials are whiny, entitled, social media addicts that can't make a decision without including a group of a thousand. And when they do, they expect a participation trophy for doing it. They are also 53 percent of the workforce so like it or not, you're going to have to deal with them.


    Bill Grady, IBM Brand Strategist, says you should like it. According to IBM's study, "Myths, Exaggerations, and Uncomfortable Truths" Millennials aren't all that different from the rest of us. The study goes into the habits and beliefs of all the generations in the workplace and we're more alike than we sometimes like to admit.


    Grady will help us:



    Sort fact from fiction about Millennials in the workplace.
    How to integrate them into your workplace
    How to be a better manager (or co-worker) regardless of generation.


    Bill Grady is Brand Strategist, IBM Corporate Headquarters. Bill is an award-winning designer and inventor with nine US patents issued and pending. He is currently focused on establishing IBM Watson as an essential worldwide brand. Bill lives in New York City, where he is an MBA candidate in the class of 2016 at NYU.
