Increased Diversity = Increased Profits & Better Conclusions

Confirming yet again that increased diversity increases both profits and correct conclusions at the local and global levels today's NYT offers direct comments from the researchers determined enough and brave enough to do the work. We, as people working to build a better future for everyone, need to communicate across groups of all kinds while those holding power and making decisions must come from a widely varied spectrum of individuals. We share one home only, earth, and we must do it better. When we degrade and demean any group everyone loses. It is that simple. It is this true. Racism in all its forms represents a hate crime against all people, at all levels of government, community, culture and society. 

 It is a small world in a vast universe. We need each other. It is the truth. Do you know it today? 

It is a small world in a vast universe. We need each other. It is the truth. Do you know it today? 

To use what I know to be true: life is very often not either/or, instead it is both/and so above I offer a brief respite in this busy season to share with family and friends. This ride is the combination of cultures, holidays and modern tech all shared with the world. I offer the honest truth and basic idea here: Happy Holidays to all my family and friends across our shared world, winter 2015.
