How Do Top Leaders Reduce Turnover and Boost Productivity in the Age of Robots? The Answer Will Surprise You

Let me start with an honest question–perhaps one that may raise an eyebrow: Does love belong in the workplace? No, not the inappropriate kind that will send you straight to HR. When I first heard of the idea of “love” as a hardcore leadership principle that drives employee engagement and high-performing cultures, I actually cringed. That was my reaction.  So I followed the evidence and started asking questions. To that end, I interviewed Steve Farber, founder and CEO of The Extreme Leadership Institute and bestselling author of The Radical Leap, because I was interested in his latest book, Love Is Just Damn Good Business. I was curious about the business case he would make in his book for “operationalizing love.” Farber believes something as hard to quantify as “love” actually can produce measurable results in business. When love is baked into the culture, he said, it effects every aspect of a business in a positive way. Customers who love what you do are more likely to spend more money with your business, promote you to their friends, and give your brand their undying loyalty. One key in the Farber formula is to create a shared passion...

District 2 Golf: Wyoming Valley Conference has chance to swing history

Since the PIAA went to two classifications for golf in 2012, the Lackawanna League has dominated the Wyoming Valley Conference in the postseason. With a stellar performance last year by the WVC, the league has started to close the gap. Still, the WVC trails the league from up north in individual district champions in that time 17-11. As the Individual District Tournament and the Team District Championships are held this week on Monday and Friday, respectively, the WVC might not only have a chance to tighten the gap again, it might be in position to make some history. When the individual event is held Monday at Fox Hill Country Club in Exeter, the Wyoming Valley might have its best shot to win all four golds for the first time ever. In the boys Class 2A event, Lake-Lehman’s Bobby Lugiano returns as reigning district champion and a four-time district qualifier and is looking to get to the East Regional Tournament for the third straight season. A year ago, Lugiano, who is also a three-time WVC pre-district titlist, held off Wyoming Seminary’s Jeremy Callahan for the gold. Like Lugiano, Callahan is a four-time district participant and is looking for his third trip to regionals. Holy...

Organic Valley Exceeds $ 1.1B in Sales for Third Consecutive Year, Solidifies Foundation for Future Growth

LA CROSSE, Wis. — At its annual meeting in La Crosse, Wisconsin, Organic Valley announced that 2018 sales were at an all-time high for the cooperative, surpassing $1.1 billion for the third consecutive year. With a 1% sales growth year-over-year, the cooperative opted to take a loss in 2018, making a strategic move to position itself for the future. Organic Valley continues to return a fair and sustainable pay price to its farmer members. “We were born out of the farm crisis of the 1980s and witnessed first-hand the significant losses family farms endured,” said Arnie Trussoni, President of Organic Valley’s Board of Directors. “Today’s milk surplus brings about similar challenges to dairy farmers across the country but Organic Valley has found a model that works to keep small family farms on their land. We’ve built a stable business that can weather this storm, and are proud to keep our commitment to family farms.” In a year when nearly 700 dairy farms went out of business in the state of Wisconsin alone, and market pressures continue to affect dairy farmers nationwide, Organic Valley brought on a remarkable 63 new members to the cooperative. Company leaders continue to emphasiz...

This summer, the liquefied carbon dioxide and dry ice markets again suffered from a lack of balance between supply and demand, The Gas Review reports. As the decline in sources of raw materials accelerated, plant troubles occurred one after the other at suppliers of raw gas almost across the country from early spring when companies had to work to increase stock levels toward high summer, forcing manufacturers to adjust shipments. Chronic shortages in sources of carbon dioxide in recent years resulted from three main factors: a decline in sources of raw material itself, sporadic troubles at plants that supply the raw material and longer scheduled maintenance periods. But it is the decline in sources of raw material that is the most concerning to producers, The Gas Review says. For the locations that use desulfurised gas from oil refineries, there are many cases where raw gas cannot be obtained to meet initial schedules because of demand for gasoline and changes in the amount of hydrogen used in refineries. Carbon dioxi...

Australia vs India cricket: Boxing Day Test live scores, updates, day 5, Aaron Finch, weather

The debacle that was Australia’s performance in the Boxing Day Test has ended as India retained the Border-Gavaskar Trophy. India has won the Boxing Day Test to take a 2-1 series lead and retain the Border-Gavaskar Trophy after bowling the hosts out for 261 on day five to secure a 137-run victory. Rain delayed the start of play for more than two hours but the tourists didn’t muck around when they finally took the field just before 1pm. Once again it was Jasprit Bumrah with the important breakthrough, getting Pat Cummins to outside edge a good length ball on off stump to first slip. Cummins — who took nine wickets and was the only Australian batsman to pass 50 in the match — was unable to add to his overnight tally of 63 as his fighting knock was brought undone by India’s best performer, who was named man of the match. Ishant Sharma then dismissed Nathan Lyon next over, caught behind from an attempted hook shot for seven. That scalp gave Rishabh Pant his 20th catch for the series, making him the first Indian wicketkeeper to claim 20 dismissals in a Test series. Bumrah’s three wickets in the second innings to go with his six victims in the first dig saw him finish with match figur...

China: 3D Printing Customized Meshes for Separating Oil and Water

(a) Typical schematic illustration of the fused deposition modeling (FDM) 3D printing process. (b) Design of 3D printing orthogonal mesh with parameter of diameter, layers, and spacing. (c,d) Optical and SEM photographs of Fe/PLA composites mesh with through hole. Researchers from China are trying to refine mesh fabrication for exercises such as separating oil from water, with their recent findings published in ‘3D Printing of an Oil/Water Mixture Separator with In Situ Demulsification and Separation.’ The authors state that there are many different types of ‘promising candidates’ to act as progressive oil/water separators. A truly suitable technique for creating such devices—along with matching post-processing methods—has been elusive though, although currently there are techniques for making: The scientists attempted to reach further though to find better tools, mainly for cleanup events in workshops, and areas where textiles, leather, and petrochemicals are produced. A 3D printed mesh could be extremely helpful in cleaning up oil spills too, some of which can be massive, spiraling out of control.Their goal was to break down oil/water combinations that have become very stable,...

Real-time tracking of fluorescent magnetic spore–based microrobots for remote detection of C. diff toxins

A rapid, direct, and low-cost method for detecting bacterial toxins associated with common gastrointestinal diseases remains a great challenge despite numerous studies and clinical assays. Motion-based detection through tracking the emerging micro- and nanorobots has shown great potential in chemo- and biosensing due to accelerated “chemistry on the move”. Here, we described the use of fluorescent magnetic spore–based microrobots (FMSMs) as a highly efficient mobile sensing platform for the detection of toxins secreted by Clostridium difficile (C. diff) that were present in patients’ stool. These microrobots were synthesized rapidly and inexpensively by the direct deposition of magnetic nanoparticles and the subsequent encapsulation of sensing probes on the porous natural spores. Because of the cooperation effect of natural spore, magnetic Fe3O4 nanoparticles, and functionalized carbon nanodots, selective fluorescence detection of the prepared FMSMs is demonstrated in C. diff bacterial supernatant and even in actual clinical stool samples from infectious patients within tens of minutes, suggesting rapid response and good selectivity and sensitivity of FMSMs toward C. diff toxins...
