True confidence = success

Posted on by

first_imgTruly confident people do things differently. They can motivate others without words and have an amazing ability to get things done.“[T]ruly confident people always have the upper hand over the doubtful and the skittish, because they inspire others and they make things happen,” writes Travis Bradberry, a contributor to Forbes who focuses on emotional intelligence and leadership performance.Bradberry shares 12 “cardinal habits of truly confident people,” including:– Their happiness comes from within. “People who brim with confidence derive their sense of pleasure and satisfaction from their own accomplishments, as opposed to what other people think of their accomplishments,” he writes.– They listen more than they speak. Truly confident people have nothing to prove, so they listen rather than talk.– They don’t seek attention. This goes back to where truly confident people find their happiness: within. They don’t need the approval (or attention) of others.– They stick their necks out. Truly confident people aren’t constrained by fear and are always open and willing to try new things. continue reading » 3SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblrlast_img read more

AP7 to report fossil fuel divestment hoax to police

Posted on by

first_imgSweden’s AP7, the SEK674bn (€64bn) default fund for the premium pension system, said it intends to file a report to police after being targeted yesterday by a sophisticated hoax, in which an unknown party purporting to be the fund itself distributed false information to media outlets.Fake news that the fund had taken a decision to divest from all fossil fuels and become carbon neutral by 2030 was then reported by IPE, one Swedish website, the French news agency AFP, and many international news outlets redistributing the AFP story.Johan Florén, AP7’s head of communications and ownership, told IPE: “We are going to try to make a report for the police. We are investigating this and and hopefully everything will become clear and we will then look into all the options.”IPE removed the false story from its website yesterday after being contacted by Florén to say the story was not true. The unknown perpetrators of the prank emailed journalists using the format of a press release closely resembling a genuine release from AP7, with the announcement also carried in English and Swedish on a website impersonating an official AP funds website.While the pension fund is taking action to remove remainders of the false information on social media and elsewhere online, Florén said there was a limited amount that could be done to guard against such attacks.“With this kind of online fraud, it’s very difficult to do anything about it. Often the perpetrators are hidden behind servers in other countries, for example,” he said.Asked who could be responsible for yesterday’s disinformation, Florén speculated the perpetrators could be environmental activists.“The AP funds have been subject to other attacks linked to the issue of sustainability, both online and physically,” he said.Two years ago, Swedish state pension buffer fund AP3 was targeted by activists from campaign group Greenpeace, which included one of their meeting rooms being occupied by protesters.Yesterday’s fake press release incident echoes the case in early 2019 when a spoof letter on climate change pretending to be from BlackRock founder Larry Fink was reported by the Financial Times and other media.last_img read more

Baseball All-Star Game

Posted on by

first_imgAs you have seen in some of my past blogs, I really have no interest in All-Star games.  Baseball is no exception.  I do not agree with the premise that the winning league gets home field advantage in the World Series this fall.  The team with the best record in baseball should get the home field advantage because they earned it on the field.I also do not agree with how the All-Stars are chosen.  I want to see the All-Stars for this year–not a team picked by which city voted the most on their computers.  I will probably start watching the All-Star game tonight, but at 9 p.m. I will turn to TNT and watch Rizzoli & Isles  By 9 p.m. I am already bored with the All-Star game.last_img
