Tim Cook wants to make the United States a better place. But the Apple CEO doesn't think running for office is the way to do it. "I don't see it," said Cook told CNN's Laurie Segall in an exclusive TV interview, when asked about getting into politics. "I love getting things done. And I don't love the political machine in the background, regardless of which party is where." Cook has used his position as one of the highest profile CEOs in the world to advocate around big issues like equal rights, climate change and immigration reform. The company itself spent $7,150,000 on lobbying in 2017, more than it had in any previous year, according to lobby spending database OpenSecrets. Other impassioned CEOs have gone the political route, including former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg. Earlier today, Starbucks (SBUX) executive chairman and former CEO Howard Schultz said he was stepping down from the company. He told the New York Times he wasn't ruling out a run for office and that … [Read more...] about Tim Cook: I don’t see politics in my future
Want know my future
Editor’s note: The following fireside chat, addressing the problem of jobs, was delivered by the President of the United States in 2021 and posted to YouTube and other channels. My fellow Americans, On a Sunday night a week after my inauguration, I spoke to you about what we share as citizens of our Republic.

By Kevin BoehnkeJan. 25, 2018 , 2:00 PM For the first 2 years of my Ph.D. program, my primary adviser was always available when I needed help, promptly responding to emails and meeting with me when questions arose. But that abruptly changed when he went on sabbatical and left the country. My emails were rarely answered, and our scheduled meetings were often canceled. I did what I could to push my research forward on my own, but I felt I was floundering. I grew frustrated and uncertain about my future, even questioning whether I wanted to pursue a research career. After sufficient wallowing in self-pity, however, I decided to take matters into my own hands by seeking the support that I needed. Haphazardly, I started building a broader network of mentors. I reached out to collaborators, committee members, teachers, and friends to ask for advice about my research and career development. It was nerve-wracking to call on people I didn’t know well or hadn’t spoken to about these … [Read more...] about My adviser went on sabbatical, and it changed the way I look for mentorship

Majority of the people still don't know the difference between RT and 8 because of poor marketing by microsoft. The price tag doesn't help either. While the idea was good, the execution was terrible. posted on 12 May 2013, 09:13 0 40. DualVoiceCoil (Posts: 5; Member since: 08 Apr 2013) I agree with you! From a marketing standpoint, when I look at Microsoft's TV adds about the Surface, I thought I was looking at a break dancing show having absolutely nothing to do with the product. posted on 12 May 2013, 22:36 0 42. joey_sfb (Posts: 6794; Member since: 29 Mar 2012) I have to ask the store is it RT to avoid buying one from mistake.
