CEO corner

Why Nike selected a tech executive as its next CEO. The company has been investing heavily in tech and data analytics. It sees its new CEO leading it into a future focused on data-driven, direct-to-consumer sales.

Why Nike selected a tech executive as its next CEO

"Parker, who has been Nike's CEO since 2006 and has worked at the company for four decades, will become the company's executive chairman, according to the press release."

This is one of the most important parts; Nike needed Parker in some sort of capacity after he steps down as CEO for 13 years.

"Parker, who has been Nike's CEO since 2006 and has worked at the company for four decades, will become the company's executive chairman, according to the press release."

This is one of the most important parts; Nike needed Parker in some sort of capacity after he steps down as CEO for 13 years.

Why?

Because Parker steered the company through countless potential disasters, from the gender discrimination mess in 2018 and the Kaepernick campaign backlash to their disservice to pregnant athletes. He didn't just address them; he fixed the problems, wiped out the bad actors, and managed to TRIPLE sales.

Parker is a heck of an architect.

WeWork gets worse

SoftBank takes over WeWork. The board of the shared office company chose the Japanese conglomerate over a competing offer from JP Morgan, the Wall Street Journal reports. Co-founder Adam Neumann will lose control of WeWork—but get a $1.7 billion payout.

SoftBank to Boost Stake in WeWork in Deal That Cuts Most Ties With Neumann

Being a big fan of WeWork’s service, it is sad to see the devaluation hitting this level. Moreover, the payout to Adam N is beyond silly for a company that is going to need a major structural face lift.

WeWork is really a true unicorn: a creature that only was viable in the mind of Adam Neumann...

While I believe it might be possible to make the business model work through a greater focus on corporate customers, the governance and hubris on the company’s leadership and greedy backers quickly contributed

While I believe it might be possible to make the business model work through a greater focus on corporate customers, the governance and hubris on the company’s leadership and greedy backers quickly contributed to unrealistic valuations.

And now SoftBank will have to live with the creature it helped create...

India's coal addiction

India’s hard push on renewables isn’t about climate change—yet. Quartz explores how India is meeting the challenge of providing increasing amounts of energy to its people while trying to lower its dependence on fossil fuels. ✦

India’s hard push on renewables isn’t about climate change—yet

Unlike the rest of the anglophilic world—Canada, the US, Australia, and the UK—India has never encountered a significant culture of climate-change denial. But the awareness of climate change in India hasn’t been high either. So the rise of renewables in India, which has been nothing short of spectacular

Unlike the rest of the anglophilic world—Canada, the US, Australia, and the UK—India has never encountered a significant culture of climate-change denial. But the awareness of climate change in India hasn’t been high either. So the rise of renewables in India, which has been nothing short of spectacular, has other motivations: from energy security to soft power.

Time to get lost in a museum...

New York's MoMA has reopened and it's a whole new experience. After the 90-year old institution’s $450-million expansion, it’s now possible to get lost at the new “mega MoMA.” That’s a good thing.

MoMA used to be my favorite museum in New York and now it's my favorite by a long shot. Aside from a few placings that feel designed for content creation (👀 surrealist section), this expansion is forward-thinking and inspired.

    “For anybody here who has an ancestor who didn't have the right to vote and you are choosing not to vote, wherever you are ... You are dishonoring your family. You are disrespecting and disregarding their legacy, their suffering and their dreams."

    My father voted for the first time in 1968 at the age of 31. He has not missed voting in an election since.

    People died for our right to vote. Never forget it. Vote.

  • Oprah is one of the most intelligent and powerful women in media so I’m always happy to see her stepping up to call people in and use her very powerful platform for good. Hopefully the message got through. Sitting out shouldn’t be an option.

  • Saw this speech and it made the hairs on my arm tingle. Words were moving and motivating. More importantly more people are going to switch to Independent. Words ar everything and she said that a few times. Ms.O is trying to shift from Blue or Red, and making these politicians speak truth and work for

    Saw this speech and it made the hairs on my arm tingle. Words were moving and motivating. More importantly more people are going to switch to Independent. Words ar everything and she said that a few times. Ms.O is trying to shift from Blue or Red, and making these politicians speak truth and work for the vote, in turn work for the people. Pay attention to words. She may not run for office, doesn't mean she ain't trying to change the game!O!

  • Oh there’s a few votes dems will not be getting.

  • No matter what your political affiliation is, we all need to get out and vote. As stated, this is a right that has been defended with American lives....

  • Oprah says, "You get a vote! And you get a vote! Everyone gets a vote!"

  • If you are passionate about a candidate you have every right to use what platforms are available to you. That doesn’t mean we have to listen. As an independent voter my voice mail if full of messages selling politicians from both side of the aisle.
