Personal and professional growth is critical for existing and future leaders. It’s the key to breaking away from the pack, the bridge that connects you to the goals you’ve yet to achieve. And the only way to consistently carve out a course that others can follow.

We also spend enormous quantities of time in activities that distract us from the reality of how brief life is, such as browsing the internet and social media for hours on end or watching television to the point of boredom. Though entertainment is enjoyable, how much time do we allow for ourselves? For professional…

Writing has existed for thousands of years. You’d think we’d have worked out how to merge by now, wouldn’t you? However, when you read more, you’ll notice that no one seems to agree on how to become good with a pen.

Regardless of who you listen to, it’s critical to understand which advice about being a writer is terrible. …

McDonald’s has used its Famous Orders promotions to reintroduce customers to essential menu items, such as the Quarter Pounder burger, and to remain culturally significant. In September, the company launched its marketing campaign by teaming up with rapper Travis…

Mars is referred to as the Red Planet. When you gaze at the night sky, you must understand why. The photograph from NASA, on the other hand, depicts it differently.

Mars is easily identifiable in the sky due to its red hue. This is due to the presence of iron on the surface of the object. Since the planet’s atmosphere is sparse, the color is visible from Earth, primarily through a telescope.

NASA released a previously unpublished picture in April that raises the possibility that Mars is also blue.

You can see white in the picture. Bluish dunes are found…

By now, most small and midsize business owners understand that they must use artificial intelligence to remain competitive in the digital age. However, several are unsure how to proceed.

With its ability to rapidly sift through reams of data in search of trends, machine learning has the potential to streamline processes and remove time- and money-consuming procedures that weigh down a company’s bottom line.

Perhaps it seems as if artificial intelligence tools are only available to large corporations such as Google or Apple. …

When you possess some of the keys, it becomes easier to access your creative potential, which, in my opinion, every writer possesses. What I’ve learned about writing is that there are three critical components to producing moving and inspiring writing, which are as follows:

  • Assemble it in a way that is relatable to the reader
  • Write with intention
  • Embody emotion in your prose

This is one way to view the creative flow of writing, and it seems to be my experience. Writing is a very spiritual…

Microsoft released new Exchange 2013/2016/2019 patches on Tuesday. CISA has directed that all federal agencies implement the patches by Friday, stating that the vulnerabilities pose an unacceptable danger.

Microsoft’s newly disclosed vulnerabilities on Tuesday could allow for manipulating the company’s Exchange Server program, which both government agencies and private businesses commonly use.

As we approach the unthinkable landmark of 31 million cases, it is time to pause, reflect, analyze, and admit that any effort to halt the dreaded coronavirus onslaught has failed.

Although epidemiologists and world leaders try, historical warnings from the Spanish Flu forewarned the second wave of the contagion’s onslaught. As we join the second wave of COVID-19 in the United States, while the Spanish Flu’s initial wave affected approximately 1.1 million people, the second wave began in October 1918, killing about 675,000 Americans.

As ‘pandemic exhaustion’ sets in, 560,000 deaths resulting from COVID-19 do not elicit the same level…
