Micro Lesson #HurricaneIrma 2

Micro Lessons using our Instagram Photos #InstagramMicroLessons in our courses.

One week after Hurricane Irma crossed Florida from the Keys to our home in Jacksonville, Florida, we collected several lessons to be used in our Management courses this coming week. We are going to use our Instagram pictures to follow the hurricane and share our thoughts, analyses, and decisions to protect our family and friends. We were in our bunker (condo) hosting a family of five friends who evacuated Miami.

Here are the points that we are covering in our courses:

  • Emergency Preparedness #GlobalManagement
  • Weather Data Analysis #GlobalSystems
  • City Leaders During Storms #GlobalLeadership

This week we will add some of these points to our weekly discussion. Have a great week.

Jose Antonio Vargas isn’t going to stop challenging President Donald Trump’s decision to end Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA). The Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist, who’s undocumented, told HuffPost in an email that there’s much more work to do even after Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced on Tuesday that the administration was terminating the program. While DACA will officially end in six months, it’s now up to the House and Senate to formulate a solution to protect the nearly 800,000 Dreamers.

Sustainable Development Goals: Company polish – or company core? | HuffPost

There are different levels of integration of SDGs in a business.A key element is understanding the difference in terms of whether this is something you do to polish the company or its existing products? This is probably where a company looks at the goals and says “we are already doing much of what the SDGs are asking for – and isn’t this terrific!”.Where based on poor evaluation, documentation and performance, then it is likely be to greenwashing.Or is it about adjusting the core business of the company – in a direction towards what the world has agreed to are fundamental needs?
