As expected, "SNL" dove right into the Petraeus scandal with its cold open on Saturday. But instead of spoofing Petraeus himself, the sketch focused on Paula Broadstone, imagining what an honest reading of her book "All In" would have been like.

How is it even possible that Elon Musk could build four multibillion companies by his mid-40s — in four separate fields (software, energy, transportation, and aerospace)? To explain Musk’s success, others have pointed to his heroic work ethic (he regularly works 85-hour weeks), his ability to set reality-distorting visions for the future, and his incredible resilience
we can learn from Musk’s story that we shouldn’t accept the dogma that specialization is the best or only path toward career success and impact.

Do you ever stop to consider what it means to think openly? Wasn’t that your basic education at school and what your parents told you to do? Whatever happened to that?
The question is important because today, more than ever, we are urged to be creative in our jobs. If you cannot think openly, how can you be creative?
From birth our parents persistently encouraged us to think for ourselves. It was non-stop; a barrage of parenting tips that were designed to help us become independent, confident and open thinkers.
Google has unveiled plans to use its Squared Online course to disrupt the education system, as it says it is “successfully” merging classroom and online learning styles, something it claims rival tech firms have failed to do.
“Squared Online bridges the gap between the classic classroom experience, where you can’t get scale, and e-learning that can sometimes be a bit dry. It offers a more experiential learning experience,” says Shuvo Saha, director of the Google Digital Academy.
The course focuses on digital marketing and is split into five modules which look at disruption, how tech is changing businesses, the rise of social and mobile, data analytics and insights.
Squared Online originally began as a face-to-face class, but the tech giant soon realised it needed more scale and so decided to create an online interactive classroom. To do this it collaborated with Avado, a professional coaching company.
This allowed it to move from 30 people attending classes three to four times a year to working with up to 400 people at a time, in a much more collaborative way.

Until you grasp Turing’s theory of computability, Coase’s theorem of transaction costs, Bell’s law of computer classes, Baldwin and Clarke’s concept of modularity, and Nakamoto’s law of the distributed ledger, you’re not prepared to lead a digital company.
The young man told them their ideas were horrible. He was a marketing expert and had a crystal clear vision in his head of what they should do. Here he was, telling them how he’d succeeded,, and no…
What most people think of as their “reputation” is really just a narrow bounds of permissible behavior that the people around them will tolerate.
As a foreign language teacher, I am always looking for innovative ways to allow my students to demonstrate what they have learned.
I want students to be able to choose a tool that brings out their creative side and, as a result, leads to a more authentic and meaningful learning experience.
Because learning a language can be difficult, I try to design a variety of activities and projects that will provide students with practice and unique opportunities to develop their language skills through the creation of their projects.
Leaked internal emails appear to show employees at one of the world’s leading pharmaceutical companies calling for “celebration” over price hikes of cancer drugs, an investigation has revealed. Staff at Aspen Pharmacare reportedly plotted to destroy stocks of life-saving medicines during a price dispute with the Spanish health service in 2014.
People with limitless determination always have enough talent to succeed.
Over the past couple years I've realized that talent truly is overrated -- it's the mentally tough people who succeed in life.
