His 20-yearHR career has included stints at companies including Costain, Burma Oil and banknoteprinter De la Rue. Here he describes his biggest break: “In my first position with De la Rue, I had to start up an HRorganisation from scratch. It was graphic arts company Crosfield Electronics,of which De La Rue was the parent. “There was literally nothing there. It was a greenfield site, thebuilding wasn’t finished and I had no staff. To make matters worse, the wholecompany was relocating from London to Hemel Hempstead. “As the HQ personnel manager, I had to find the talent for the companyand create my own team. As Crosfield is involved in the computerelectronics/colour imaging industry, retention was a top priority. “The sector is notoriously volatile and it is very difficult to findthe right software engineers. And this was in 1985, which was a boom time forthe industry. “The whole experience taught me so many things. I am no longer phasedby change management and see that those sort of challenges are do-able. Isuppose I have the view that anything is possible “It also helped make me a business partner.

John Gordon, vice president of marketing and strategy at IBM’s Watson Solutions Divisions said the question at IBM right now is: how do we start applying technology to solve problems, creating something meaningful that would have an impact on people’s lives?Gordon spoke Friday in Jordan Auditorium at the Mendoza College of Business as part of a one-credit course called “Notre Dame Ten Years Hence Speaker Series: The Future of Energy” that brings speakers to campus who will explore issues, ideas and trends likely to affect society in the next decade. Gordon’s is the fourth lecture in the series.Gordon is a graduate of Notre Dame in philosophy and computer science who has been working in the technology world since receiving his MBA from the University of Texas at Austin.In his speech, Gordon discussed the future of computer systems and software — how it is changing and how it is expected to change over the next decade.“With the help of 400,000 employees, we focus on innovation that matters to us and the world”, Gordon said.He said their goal is to push the world forward and show dedication to every client’s success.“IBM is unique in that we have a sense of trust and personal responsibility in all relationships, which greatly helps us develop professional relationships and push past problems,” Gordon said.Gordon said the world is at the initial cusp of a new era of computing: the cognitive area of computing, which will have profound effects on the opportunities available for people and businesses.“Instead of building machines to do what we want, we want to build machines that we can tell what to do.” Gordon said.He said the goal of IBM is to create a system that learns and grows by experience.“We want to create a system that augments human cognition — systems that don’t just give output but explain it,” Gordon said.He said this system would encompass a whole new system of reasoning that can help us figure out what is out there. Gordon said it would be able to evaluate all possible responses in hundreds of thousands of ways, and as it grows in experience, it will learn and become more precise.“These systems could lead to breakthroughs in many different areas — medicine, environmental issues, etcetera,” Gordon said. “As the entire spectrum grows, the industry will grow and will continue to inspire us in different ways.”Tags: Ten Years Hence

Share Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest The recent lack of rain is beginning to have negative effects on soil moisture and is causing uneven emergence on late planted crops, according to Cheryl Turner, Ohio State Statistician of the USDA’s National Agricultural Statistics Service. There were 6.0 days suitable for fieldwork for the week ending June 12th. The statewide average temperature was 68.2 degrees, only 0.3 degrees above normal. Precipitation was scattered and short throughout the State with a statewide average of 0.42 inches, less than half of normal. Some locally heavy rains fell in the western part of the State at the end of the week. Soil moisture supplies fell along with hay and pasture conditions. While corn and soybeans are still in good condition, they are beginning to show signs of stress. Despite the uneven quality of emerged stands, emergence is moving very rapidly, as corn, soybeans, and oats are all ahead of the five year average. Some growers are waiting to finish planting until more rain brings soil moisture to adequate levels. Growers mostly spent the week spraying, applying fertilizer, and cutting hay. The hay crop is looking very good due to the weather, but growth may suffer due to the dry weather.Click here for the full report
After a couple of months of construction, I finally have more to report on my renovation project. It is moving more slowly and is costing more than I had expected, but it is moving along, the quality of work is excellent, and the end is in sight.I am reminded almost every day why I decided to exit the renovation business – as exciting as it is to see construction progress, the time and energy it takes to make sure everything gets done right and on time exhausts me. This process has also been teaching me some important lessons about patience and right sized homes. RELATED ARTICLES Finally! Starting Construction At My HouseMusings on Lawsuits, Spiritual Energy, and Metal RoofsGreen From the Start: Small Victory Department Green From the Start Redux, or Trying to Build Green in a Historic DistrictWhat We Have Here Is a Failure to CommunicateGreen From the Start: Home Edition Volume 2Green From the Start – Home Edition Patience, patienceFraming is just about complete, and I will forever be thankful that I hired the right person for the job. I subcontracted out the demolition, foundations, framing, roofing, and exterior trim and siding to a single contractor, someone I have known for about 30 years. He runs a small company, just himself and a helper – and while progress is slower than I would have preferred, his attention to detail is exceptional. Bigger is definitely not betterUntil recently I had forgotten just how small my home is. After eight years living in only 750 (soon to be 800) square feet, I am temporarily staying in a friend’s vacant house that is over 4,000 square feet, and I feel lost. It is so spacious that I don’t know what to do with myself. The rooms are too big, there are too many, and I can’t figure out the light switches. The walk to the bathroom feels like a short hike, to the kitchen a long one.I’ve built and renovated many homes even much larger than this one, including one for myself, and until recently rarely paid that much attention to how much space people said they needed. Although American home sizes continue to increase, I have come to realize that, personally, I don’t ever want to live in a large home again. I would much rather have a small house and the freedom that comes with it. Onward and upwardI will be reporting soon on the installation of my plumbing system, reinstallation of one minisplit, and tuning up and adding spray foam insulation. Stay tuned. It is already an interesting ride. It is a pleasure to find someone who cares about the quality of the work who doesn’t just throw things up fast to meet production schedules. As an added bonus, his estimate was very competitive. The old adage “good, fast and cheap – pick any two” turned out to be true. I didn’t get fast, but I am certainly getting excellent quality at a very fair price.This speed/price/quality issue makes me wonder about the state of the construction industry. With the exception of modular and some panelized projects, construction is still among the least industrialized industries around. Unlike most modern manufacturing, quality is very inconsistent and tends to be inversely proportional to the pace of production.It seems that most contractors who are interested in true high-quality construction are the least rewarded financially. Time is money: those borrowing it want to pay as little interest as possible, and those investing want a fast return. Speed of production is rewarded, while time taken to attend to details and quality are not. It has taken me several weeks to settle down and accept that although my project is not moving as fast as I would like, I am getting very high quality work from someone who really cares.

Ohio State freshman running back J.K. Dobbins (2) runs the ball in the first quarter in the game against Penn State on Oct. 28. Ohio State won 39-38. Credit: Jack Westerheide | Photo EditorDespite a 15-point fourth-quarter deficit, No. 3 Ohio State (7-1, 5-0 Big Ten) rode a stupendous performance from quarterback J.T. Barrett to a 39-38 victory against No. 7 Penn State (7-1, 4-1 Big Ten) in a battle of Big Ten powers. Head coach Urban Meyer addressed the media Monday afternoon following the victory. Here are three takeaways from the press conference.Improved offensive line led to comeback winJust a year ago, then-No. 2 Ohio State played a close game against the Nittany Lions, but crumbled on the final drive and fell 24-21 to unranked Penn State. Meyer believes this season, the Buckeyes’ resilience in tough situations did not exist a year ago.“The team last year would not have won that game,” Meyer said. “They would have dropped their head. Offensive line would have dropped their head.”Right tackle Isaiah Prince struggled in last season’s loss to Penn State. He looked overmatched the entire game and allowed multiple sacks as the clock ticked closer to zero on what would be Ohio State’s final drive. But Prince has matured after a year of experience and coaching, Meyer said. The head coach was incredulous when asked whether he was worried about Prince heading into last Saturday’s game.“He’s unbelievable now,” Meyer said. “Isaiah, not worried about him at all. He’s a grown man that’s handling his stuff the way a right offensive tackle at Ohio State should.”All five starting offensive linemen graded as successful on between 82 and 86 percent of their plays. Meyer deemed them all to have “champion” effort. Meyer does not want to “micromanage” running back carriesIn the first quarter, freshman running back J.K. Dobbins exploded, taking four carries for 50 yards, including a 21-yard rush. But he did not touch the ball again until the third quarter as redshirt sophomore running back Mike Weber took all seven second-quarter carries.Dobbins finished with 13 rushes for 88 yards while Weber had 21 yards and a touchdown on seven carries. Meyer said he does not, and would not want to, involve himself in divvying up the carries.“[Dobbins] still had 88 yards and however many carries,” Meyer said. “So we’re throwing the ball so darn well right now, too. So there’s no, once again I don’t micromanage. That’s Kevin Wilson, and that’s Tony Alford to determine. And they’re both practicing very hard. You’d like to get them more carries.”Meyer said he trusts good coaches to make playing-time decisions when the players are “1-A” and “1-B.” “[Running backs coach] Tony Alford is an excellent football coach,” Meyer said. “The last thing he needs is me worrying about that stuff.”Meyer said Weber has “really done a nice job” this season despite an injury which hampered him and made possible Dobbins’ surge, but also mentioned the 2016 starter was humbled. Meyer said Weber’s goal is to reach close to 2,000 rushing yards in a season. But with Dobbins accompanying him in the backfield for the foreseeable future, his path to reaching 2,000 yards is unclear.Search remains for a solution to kickoffsIt took just 15 seconds into Saturday’s game for Penn State to take advantage of Ohio State’s biggest weakness — kickoff coverage — as running back Saquon Barkley returned the opening kick 97 yards to give the Nittany Lions an early six-point lead.After the game, Meyer called the kickoff unit, which he said has historically been near the best in the conference, “comical.” Monday afternoon, he said it was “a joke right now.” “We’re the only school in the America that can’t kick it out of the end zone, even with the wind at our back,” Meyer said. “I’m not a kicking expert but kick the ball out of the end zone and we don’t do that. It’s not because of not telling them to kick the ball out of the end zone.”Former Ohio State punter Cameron Johnston disputed the claim. He took to Twitter to say he does not believe Meyer’s claim about not being able to kick the ball out of the end zone, as he said he has seen both kickers do so firsthand.Regardless of how the Buckeyes fix the unit, they cannot afford to continue to send out the same unit expecting different results. If something doesn’t change, the number in Ohio State’s loss column will.
