What is the weather forecast at work?



What is the weather forecast at work?

Way back in the 1990s, there was only the hope of a snowy day, fear of torrential rain, or expectation of sunshine—not the level of certainty we see with current weather forecasting technology. Regardless of your area, Doppler radar can predict with pinpoint accuracy everything from wind speed, inches of snow, and the exact time you’ll need your raincoat during the day. The actual weather forecast of your corporate culture is much harder to predict. The good thing is that we have a real chance to change the weather at work for good.

Can culture really be measured?

Culture is difficult to measure because it is multidimensional. The aspects that make up culture—its values, assumptions, and norms—cannot be fully assessed using quantitative metrics alone. They require pulse checks, conversations and qualitative data points. At its core, a strong corporate culture (one that emphasizes inclusion, belonging, and opportunity for all) also produces a range of traceable behaviors. People look at this normative behavior to understand what is acceptable.

While one organization can protect psychological safety by encouraging the sharing of mistakes and lessons learned, another organization can have standards that encourage people to “fly under the radar” and avoid speak louder and sharing information for fear of retaliation. Employees at various organizations quickly learn that knowledge is power and begin to hoard that knowledge instead of openly sharing it with colleagues and new hires, perpetuating unjust systems and processes. Defining your culture in terms of useful habits is an important part of the process, and grounding those habits in diversity, equality and inclusion is essential for true culture transformation.

Culture compared to what?

People wake up every day and choose where they work. Part of an employee’s commitment to work for your organization should be engaging in behavior that aligns with the company’s values. According to digital advertising company Lucidity, the four most common corporate values ​​are teamwork, customer focus, respect and integrity, all of which are deeply intertwined with inclusive fair behavior. Thus, examining the degree and consistency of teamwork, respect and integrity would be the starting point for a company with those values ​​to gauge the current or future direction of their people culture.

To start

More than words on the wall, bringing company values ​​to life can be as easy (or just as challenging) as bringing people together to talk about what they mean and agree on what behaviors fit each value. The action steps below can be used with leaders as well as with small groups of multifunctional teams:

1. Values ​​in action planning. Assemble a diverse team to plan a series of work sessions. Be mindful when assembling a group with a strong ‘in the field’ presence to avoid giving the impression that this is just an HR program.

2. Discussion workshops on real stories. Start by organizing several choice sessions where people come together to describe what they see and hear to identify patterns of biased or exclusive behavior that should be given emphasis or a greater sense of urgency.

3. Values ​​one by one. Send your people on a learning journey that includes a deep dive into each business value. Involve operational leaders and individual employees to describe their personal connection to each value. Create a learning path and inject small learning moments that help employees recognize the obvious benefit of aligning their behavior with each value.

4. Restart your values. The last step in this process is essential. Collect everything people have learned and share it in an authentic way. Paint a picture of how values ​​have played out (or not) in the past, then offer an inspiring message about how we can move forward together. Attract charismatic leaders to amplify this message.

Long-term forecast

During this pandemic, we’ve seen how macro factors can hurt the most certain forecasts.
Managing through uncertainty as well as economic shifts, both at home and at work, have challenged our ability to see beyond next week, let alone next year. As we prepare to take the final turn in 2021, resetting corporate culture, collecting an honest account of everyday experiences, and proactively working to encourage and celebrate your company’s core values ​​in action will help transform your business environment. form into a climate that is sunny and warm and inclusive for all for years to come.



UFC Fight Night Rob Font vs. Jose Aldo




UFC Fight Night Rob Font vs.  Jose Aldo

Jose Aldo is already arguably the greatest featherweight fighter in MMA history. In the past two years, he has shifted his focus to the UFC Bantamweight title. Aldo takes on Rob Font at the main event of UFC Fight Night on Saturday in Las Vegas. The winner will position themselves next year for a title shot or a title eliminator in the 135-pound division.

ESPN ranks Font No. 5 and Aldo No. 6 in the world at bantamweight. The title photo is a bit messy. Aljamain Sterling is the champion and Petr Yan, the former champion, holds the interim title. Sterling vs. Yan is likely next as they try to unify the titles after Sterling took over the title from Yan by DQ following an illegal knee. But that fight has already been postponed once, due to Sterling’s injuries. The winner of Font vs. Aldo could be next after that fight, especially if former champion TJ Dillashaw is still recovering from knee surgery.

Font (19-4) has won four in a row – most recently a unanimous decision over former bantamweight champion Cody Garbrandt. Font, fighting from Massachusetts, hasn’t lost since 2018. Font, 34, holds a 9-3 UFC record and looks better than ever since returning from knee surgery last year.

Aldo (30-7) held the UFC/WEC featherweight title for parts of six years, including seven title defenses, a division record. The Brazilian went back to bantamweight in 2019. He lost his first two fights at 135, also in a title fight for the vacant title against Yan. But Aldo, 35, has taken two straight wins and looked good in wins against contenders Pedro Munhoz and Marlon Vera.

In the co-main event, Brad Riddell takes on Rafael Fiziev in a battle between two of the most exciting emerging lightweights on the UFC roster. Riddell (10-1), a 30-year-old from New Zealand, is 4-0 in his UFC career. Fiziev (10-1), a 28-year-old from Kazakhstan, has won four in a row.

Also on the card, the tough Clay Guida takes on the wily Leonardo Santos in a lightweight fight, light-heavyweight prospects Jimmy Crute and Jamahal Hill go up against prospect Brendan Allen veteran Chris Curtis, who is fresh off his first win. in the UFC.

Follow live how Brett Okamoto, Marc Raimondi and Jeff Wagenheim sum up the action or watch the fights on ESPN+.

Fight On-going: Strawweight: Cheyanne Vlismas (6-2, 1-1 UFC; -190) vs. Mallory Martin (7-4, 1-2 UFC; +160)

Light Heavyweight: Defeats William Knight (11-2, 3-1 UFC). Alonzo Menifield (11-3, 4-3 UFC) by unanimous decision

Knight’s coaches may want to invest in some of those blocks that officials at the cage use to signal that there are only 10 seconds left in a round. Because every time Knight heard that noise, he increased the aggression — and in two of the three rounds, he did damage. That was enough for him to win the unanimous decision over Menifield as all three judges made it 29-28 in Knight’s favour.

Knight, 33, of East Hartford, Connecticut, didn’t do much during the first 4½ minutes of the fight, but in the closing seconds of round 1 he seriously hurt Menifield. The Dallas fighter bounced back well in round 2, before getting caught late. And on the final lap, Menifield controlled a seemingly endless clinch against the cage before Knight finally got away, with just enough time for Knight to turn up the heat again and secure his second straight win.

Menifield, 34, saw a winning streak of two fights come to an end.

Lightweight: Defeats Claudio Puelles (12-2, 4-1 UFC). Chris Gruetzemacher (15-5, 3-4 UFC) by third round submission (knee bar)

Gruetzemacher has the wrestling instincts to dictate where a fight will take place, but he was constantly playing with fire by taking part in a wrestling match against Puelles – and it eventually caught up with Gruetzemacher. Puelles was locked in a knee bar with less than two minutes left in the fight, then was tapped at 3:25 of round 3.

Puelles, a 25-year-old Peruvian fighter training at Sanford MMA in South Florida, got the fight on the canvas early on and controlled the action. But Gruetzemacher did not hesitate to return to the mat in the second and third rounds. Although he escaped trouble a few times, Gruetzemacher eventually paid the price.

It was Puelles’ fourth win in a row. Gruetzemacher, 35, of Arizona, has dropped two of his last three bouts and four of six.



Vince Morales stuns Louis Smolka with an incredible right hand early in their fight.

Men’s Bantamweight: Vince Morales (11-5, 3-3 UFC) Def. Louis Smolka (17-8, 8-8 UFC) by KO . in the first round

Morales found himself in a clinch midway through the first lap in Saturday’s opening night, and as he pulled away, that didn’t soften his attack. The 31-year-old from Oregon released a right hand from tight and sent Smolka crashing to the canvas.

The end came at 2:02 of the round, giving Morales his second win in a row.

Smolka, a 30-year-old Hawaiian fighter training out of Irvine, California, has lost two of his last three.

Is yet to come:

Men’s Bantamweight: Rob Font vs. Jose Aldo
Lightweight: Brad Riddell vs. Rafael Fizievi
Lightweight: Clay Guida vs. Leonardo Santos
Light Heavyweight: Jimmy Crute vs. Jamahal Hill

ADL: Holocaust denial still ramps up on Facebook, despite ban imposed year ago




ADL: Holocaust denial still ramps up on Facebook, despite ban imposed year ago

The Anti-Defamation League has said that, a year after Facebook banned the platform’s Holocaust denial, there are still “enforcement cracks” that allow deniers to spread hateful language.

While Facebook has banned certain search terms related to Holocaust denial, others remain available, displaying videos and pages.

“There is still a lot of Holocaust denial on Facebook,” ADL CEO Jonathan Greenblatt said this week. “We urge the platform to take additional steps to address these cracks in enforcement and ensure that the ban is applied more consistently across the platform.”

The ADL noted that the content it marked as Holocaust denial in several instances had gone untouched by the platform.

It also said that groups engaged in conspiracy theories, while not exclusively Holocaust denial, also trade in denial claims.

“As ADL has explained to Facebook for years, Holocaust denial is hate speech. It is the deliberately anti-Semitic attempt to claim that the Holocaust never happened or that a much smaller number of Jews perished,” Greenblatt said. “This offensive content is causing pain and harm to Jews, especially at a time of growing concern about anti-Semitic incidents.”

In the past year, Facebook has become increasingly active in combating Holocaust denial, removing objectionable content and redirecting people seeking information about the Holocaust to accurate information from third parties, using the same approach it has taken. followed for misinformation about elections and COVID-19.
