Recent plans for trade talks to resume in October raised some hope on Wall Street for a resolution.“The U.S.-China tug of war will continue, but there is growing sense that U.S.-China sentiment may be shifting to a state of trade war neutrality,” said Stephen Innes, Asia-Pacific market strategist at AxiTrader.Meanwhile, investors continue to watch the steady flow of economic data for a clearer picture of the U.S. economy’s health. Recent reports have been a mixed bag, including a Labor Department report Tuesday that showed both a slip in job openings as well as a slight increase in hiring in July.The Labor Department will report the latest consumer price index figures on Thursday and the Commerce Department will report August retail sales data on Friday.

Forward Matt Johnson (26) is 1 of 8 OSU seniors scheduled to play their final collegiate home game against Minnesota on March 7 at the Schottenstein Center. Credit: Kelly Roderick / Lantern photographerAfter 142 games, the Ohio State men’s hockey senior class is set for one last series at the Schottenstein Center.The Buckeyes are set to honor eight seniors on Saturday night — forwards Tanner Fritz, Matt Johnson, Darik Angeli, Chad Niddery and Nick Oddo and defensemen Al McLean, Justin DaSilva and Clark Cristofoli — as they play in their final collegiate home game.“They are what an Ohio State Buckeye is,” coach Steve Rohlik said. “All eight of these guys have brought different things to the table, on the ice, off the ice and in the classroom.”Former Buckeye and current Binghamton Senator in the AHL Ryan Dzingel sang his praises for his former teammates as well.“This senior class is a group filled with character,” Dzingel said in an email.The class has played a big role in leadership for the Buckeyes. This season, the seniors have become the leading offensive unit, scoring 33 of the Buckeyes’ 84 goals. They also showed their ability on the defensive side, blocking 192 of OSU’s 493 total blocked shots.“These guys are always that group that’s there for you, no matter what,” junior forward Anthony Greco said. “Each player brings a different element to our game. Johnson and Niddery are hardworking and give their all every day at the rink. We will also miss the skill that Fritz, Oddo and Angeli have. They are all going to be missed and it’s going to be tough to find guys that are able to fill those holes.”This weekend’s last home series against the Minnesota Golden Gophers is a time for the seniors to express gratitude and appreciation for OSU and their teammates.“This experience has meant absolutely everything to me,” DaSilva said in an email. “I’m proud that I was able to play hockey for the Ohio State University and be a part of this community.”DaSilva said the reality of his OSU career winding down hasn’t hit just yet.“I don’t think the feeling will come till Saturday night,” he said. “When we walk out of the locker for the last time, that’s when all emotions will come.”Oddo added that he has some mixed emotions as senior night approaches.“It’s exciting and sad kind of at the same time, it’s the last time we will be here playing in front of our home fans, it’s kind of bittersweet,” Oddo said.Rohlik said it will be an emotional weekend for the seniors, but added that’s not necessarily a negative.“I feel like this emotion can be seen in a positive way too, because I think there is a lot of guys in this room that want to send them (the seniors) off on the right note,” Rohlik said.Greco said the loss of this year’s seniors is especially hard.“They have been great, this senior class is kind of my core group of buddies on the team. These were the guys that directed me and helped me when I came in. I’ve grown to be close with all of them and it’s going to be sad to see them leave,” Greco said.For OSU, the season is far from over with the thought of the Big Ten Tournament on the horizon.After achieving their first series sweep against the Penn State Nittany Lions last weekend, the Buckeyes are looking to build upon that momentum with just two series to play before the postseason, Oddo said.“We dealt with a lot of different things, going through injuries, traveling, different elements like that,” he said. “So coming back here with a full healthy roster, we have the ability to be successful.”The Buckeyes are set to take on the No. 15 Golden Gophers Friday at 5 p.m. and Saturday at 6 p.m. at the Schottenstein Center. read more

first_imgJuventus are plotting a sensational move to bring Paul Pogba back to the club.The Italian club are ready to cash in on players like Gonzalo Higuain, Miralem Pjanic and Daniele Rugani to find a transfer for Pogba.The Turin based outfit have made initial contact with Pogba’s agent, Mino Raiola, and have informed him of their desire to resign the midfielder they sold to United for £89million two years ago.It is understood United would be willing to sell due to the fractious relationship between Jose and Pogba, which escalated last season after the player was dropped to the bench on several occasions.Franck Ribery, FiorentinaFiorentina owner: “Ribery played better than Ronaldo!” Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Fiorentina owner Rocco Commisso was left gushing over Franck Ribery’s performance against Juventus, which he rates above that of even Cristiano Ronaldo’s.The awkwardness between player and coach was made obvious when Mourinho made comments to reporters about Pogba’s World Cup performance with France.“I don’t think it’s about us getting the best out of him but him giving us the best he has to offer,” Mourinho responded when asked about United getting the best out of Pogba, according to Daily Mail.This won’t have gone unnoticed by Paul who’s currently on holiday in the United States.Meanwhile, Juventus manager Massimiliano Allegri wants Pogba to come to join Cristiano Ronaldo at the club as he plans to extend his dominance of the Italian Serie A into the UEFA Champions League.last_img read more

first_imgSimon Mignolet believes Liverpool would learn from their late title twist in 2014 as they close in on their first Premier League crown.Only three players Mignolet, Jordan Henderson and Daniel Sturridge who were all instrumental in that campaign are in the current team.And five years on they are on the cusp of something special with a four-point lead ahead of Man City.“So much has changed over the past five years here,” he told the ECHO.“It’s only Hendo, Studge and me still here from the last time we really fought for the title.“Back then a lot of it was about Luis Suarez and Studge, whereas now the goals are shared about more. We had a really good team in 2013/14 but the moment we got one or two injuries it became difficult.“We’ve got a broad squad now which means we can cope with injuries. That’s probably the biggest difference with last time.“If a game is deadlocked there is always someone ready on the bench who is capable of opening a game up. In that sense, we’re in a much better position than we were then.23 – Mohamed Salah & Roberto Firmino have combined to set up 23 goalscoring chances for one another in the Premier League this season; more than any other pair. The next best is Mohamed Salah & Sadio Mané (22 chances created between each other). Dangerous. pic.twitter.com/EbtRefEXZP— OptaJoe (@OptaJoe) January 21, 2019Top 5 Premier League players to watch for next weekend Tomás Pavel Ibarra Meda – September 11, 2019 With the international activity cooling down for the next month, we go back to the Premier League’s Top 5 players to watch this weekend.After…“The general quality of this squad is the best I’ve ever known. When we play 11 v 11 in training it’s like being involved in a top match in the Premier League.“It’s not 11 first-teamers against 11 reserves, it’s two Premier League sides facing each other in training. It’s high quality.”Klopp’s men are breaking club records with their tally of 60 points from 23 games the best return at this stage of a season in the club’s illustrious history.Defensively, the difference is vast. Where Liverpool leaked 50 league goals in 2013/14, now the foundations are much stronger with just 13 conceded this time around.7 – Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool won seven league games during December 2018 – the most they’ve ever won in a single calendar month in their entire history. Award. pic.twitter.com/4n4yGN2ggQ— OptaJoe (@OptaJoe) January 11, 2019“Exactly and that’s massive,” Mignolet said.“I think a big part of that is Virgil van Dijk. Ever since he’s come in he’s made a huge difference.“It’s not only his playing ability but the character and the leadership he sends out from the back. It’s especially important when you play teams like Brighton and Crystal Palace recently.“It’s the pressure he eases with his clearing headers. He always makes it look so easy. Something that’s very difficult for anyone else, just looks like a walk in the park for Virgil. He’s made us a lot more solid than before.”last_img read more

Don’t forget that it is still two years away before Sands Cotai Central turns into The Londoner so we’re really looking ahead and are very happy to invest in the future of Macau.”Chairman and CEO Sheldon Adelson revealed in the company’s 3Q18 earnings call earlier this month that Sands would increase its total investment into the refurbishment of Sands Cotai Central, as well as the Four Seasons and St. Regis suites, from US$1.2 billion to US$2.2 billion. Those projects will start coming online from 2020, with Dr Wong confirming that work on the first projects would begin immediately after Chinese New Year in February 2019.While the timeline puts Sands China’s new developments on a collision course with the first release of information on the upcoming Macau re-tendering process, due by no later than October next year, Dr Wong insisted he is “not going to speculate on what the tender requirements will be,” adding, “I have full faith in the Macau government to treat everyone fairly, so we’re confident.”However, he did acknowledge potential challenges ahead for all Macau operators given recent trade tensions between the US and China.“I think there are certain differences between the east and the west both in terms of their philosophy and their cultural background,” he observed. “And at a time when the western culture is dominating the world everyone follows the rules that are dictated by western culture.“Now eastern culture is emerging – China, Japan – the eastern culture has emerged and therefore there are certain ways in which we think about a problem and how we look at the world order.“That will lead to conflicts and challenges in trade, in military, in other areas and so I think this cultural difference has to be reconciliated in order for the world to reach a new world order.” RelatedPosts Load More Galaxy offers first glimpse of new Galaxy Macau convention center ahead of 2021 launchlast_img read more

first_imgPrime minister Sheikh Hasina speaks at a joint meeting of AL Central Working Committee, Advisory Council and Parliamentary Party at her official Ganabhaban residence Friday evening. Photo: PIDPrime minister Sheikh Hasina today expressed her firm optimism about Awami League’s victory in the upcoming general elections and said the pro-liberation forces will remain in power when the nation will celebrate the golden jubilee of independence.“We must win in the next parliamentary elections as the people of the country are with us,” she said in her introductory speech at a joint meeting of AL Central Working Committee, Advisory Council and Parliamentary Party at her official Ganabhaban residence Fridaq evening.The prime minister said: “We will celebrate the golden jubilee of our independence Insha Allah when the pro-liberation forces will stay in power.”Sheikh Hasina, also the Awami League president, said the golden jubilee of independence will not be celebrated properly if the pro-liberation forces do not remain in power. “The Pakistan-lovers will not celebrate it — it’s a reality,” she added.Noting that she has full confidence and trust in the people, the premier said the Awami League came to power with their strength and vote.Sheikh Hasina said touch of development has brought about a massive change in everybody’s life and this has presented a beautiful life to them.“The people will surely give another chance to Awami League for formation of the government by retaining this change,” she hoped.The prime minister said the nation will observe the birth centenary of Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman in 2020 and celebrate the golden jubilee of its independence in 2021.-“We’re fortunate that we were in state power when Bangladesh celebrated the silver jubilee of its independence in 1996 and at my invitation South African revolutionary leader Nelson Mandela, late Palestinian president Yasir Arafat and former Turkish president Suleman Demirrel joined the celebration,” she added.Elaborating Bangladesh’s tremendous development in different sectors, Sheikh Hasina said the pace of uplift will continue if Awami League is reelected with the vote of the people.“If we come to power again, the people will be gifted with more beautiful life and every village will be turned into a town,” she said, adding that the people will get urban facilities by staying at the villages and they will not go through any hardship.In this connection, the Awami League president quoted a comment of Bangabandhu in which he said: “We will decorate every village like a town.”“I’m working untiringly to materialise Bangabandhu’s dream and I’ve firm confidence that we could achieve this goal Insha Allah,” she said.The prime minister said her government has been able to free the nation from the curse of hunger. “Bangladesh will be made a poverty-free country by 2021 and transformed into a developed country by 2041,” she said.Sheikh Hasina said her government adopted the Delta Plan-2100 to turn Bangladesh into a most developed country in the next century and keep up its development spree.The prime minister said the poverty rate has dropped to 21 percent and “we can call Bangladesh as a poverty-free country if the rate is reduced by 4/5 percent further.”She said Bangladesh has got the recognition of a developing country from the LDC group fulfilling three conditions. “We want to retain this success and take it forward,” she said.Criticising those who do not see Bangladesh’s development, Sheikh Hasina said one of the leaders who formed Jatiya Oikyafront said that “Pakistan made more development than Bangladesh.”“He should be sent to Pakistan to see the actual situation in Pakistan,” she said, adding Saudi Arabia has given three billion dollars to Pakistan for repaying Islamabad’s debt and this is the situation of Pakistan.“We are not a loan defaulter at all and we’re paying loan regularly and we needn’t to beg to anybody for repaying credit … despite that if anybody doesn’t see our development, we leave the matter to the people,” she added.The prime minister came down heavily on Kamal Hossain for formation of a new alliance with those convicted for corruption, money laundering, 10-truck arms haul and the 21 August grenade attack.“Those who were vocal against graft and made theoretical comments against it forged unity with corrupt elements,” she said.The prime minister rejected the Jatiya Oikya Front’s demand for the resignation of the government and constitution of a neutral government for holding the next election, she said there is an apex court verdict that no unelected government could come to power.“Despite that how some top lawyers demand for such a government?” she said, adding in whose interest they are making such demands?.The prime minister criticised them for opposing the use of electronic voting machine (EVM). “The EVM is internationally used and none can rig votes as everybody has smart cards with biometric finger prints,” she said.“So why they are raising objection about the EVM. Do they want election or other things?” she questioned.Sheikh Hasina said they are making illogical demands to destabilise the country. “They want an abnormal situation in the country,” she said.Ruling out the alliance’s allegation that the government is not giving permission to hold rallies, she said they were allowed to hold a rally in Sylhet.“Much before the rally, they make allegations that the government is not allowing them to arrange meeting … I think they are doing this so that we obstruct them,” she said.In this connection, Sheikh Hasina said she has already given directives to all to allow them to hold as many rallies they want as democracy exists in the country.“They will deliver speeches as much as they want … none will bar them in this regard,” she said.The prime minister said Begum Khaleda Zia was convicted and sent to jail for embezzlement of orphans’ money not for political reason.She said the BNP government filed a dozen cases against her and the caretaker government lodged 5/6 more cases. “Not a single case was withdrawn and investigation was conducted in every case,” she said.Sheikh Hasina said she had called for probe into the every case and she was interrogated in every case. “The report on every case was submitted after investigation,” she said.The prime minister said the World Bank brought corruption allegation against her regarding the Padma Bridge construction, but the bank could not prove the graft.last_img read more

first_img The Thames Beater (top) and the replica club used for experimentation (bottom) with the blade, barrel and pommel labelled . Credit: Meaghan Dyer Some time ago, archaeologists pulled a wooden club from a waterlogged part of the north bank of the River Thames—after dating it back to approximately 3530-3340 B.C., they subsequently dubbed it the “Thames Beater” because it had clearly been used by one person to beat another person during the Neolithic period. In this new effort, the researchers sought to learn more about the damage the weapon could cause.Because they did not have access to an original club (only one real one has been found), and because they could not bash actual humans, the team fashioned their own clubs modeled after the original Thames Beater. To replicate the human head, they used a model that had been designed for military ballistic testing. Skulls were made of polyurethane which were filled with gelatin and wrapped with a rubber skin. The researchers then enlisted the assistance of a 30-year-old male volunteer to serve as a combatant wielding a Thames beater. He bashed the head of the model as hard as if he were fighting for his life. Upon examining the results, the researchers found that the Thames beater was, indeed, a weapon that could be used to crack the skull of a human being and kill them.The researchers than compared the fractured fake skulls with real ones that had been dug up from Neolithic graveyards and found at least one that looked very similar, suggesting that the person who had done the damage was likely using a Thames beater. Taken together, the evidence suggests the club was more lethal than has been thought. It also creates a better picture of what Neolithic violence was like, the researchers add, noting that the club would likely have been used only in scenarios in which one person was very clearly bent on killing another. Journal information: Antiquity Explore further (Phys.org)—A team of researchers with the University of Edinburgh has found evidence that the “Thames Beater” was a weapon that could be used to kill another person—perhaps at times, with a single blow to the head. In their paper published in the journal Antiquity, the group describes experiments they conducted to learn more about the lethality of the weapon.

Understanding blunt force trauma and violence in Neolithic Europe: the first experiments using a skin-skull-brain model and the Thames Beater, Antiquity (2017). DOI: 10.15184/aqy.2017.189AbstractThe difficulty in identifying acts of intentional injury in the past has limited the extent to which archaeologists have been able to discuss the nature of interpersonal violence in prehistory. Experimental replication of cranial trauma has proved particularly problematic due to the lack of test analogues that are sufficiently comparable to the human skull. A new material now overcomes this issue, and for the first time allows accurate insight into the effects of different weapons and different blows in inflicting cranial injury; in this case, blunt force trauma caused using a replica of the ‘Thames Beater’ Neolithic wooden club.

first_img This story originally appeared on Reuters 7 min read September 8, 2015 Apple has ramped up its hiring of artificial intelligence experts, recruiting from PhD programs, posting dozens of job listings and greatly increasing the size of its AI staff, a review of hiring sites suggests and numerous sources confirm.The goal is to challenge Google in an area the Internet search giant has long dominated: smartphone features that give users what they want before they ask.As part of its push, the company is currently trying to hire at least 86 more employees with expertise in the branch of artificial intelligence known as machine learning, according to a recent analysis of Apple job postings. The company has also stepped up its courtship of machine-learning PhD’s, joining Google, Amazon, Facebook and others in a fierce contest, leading academics say.But some experts say the iPhone maker’s strict stance on privacy is likely to undermine its ability to compete in the rapidly progressing field.Machine learning, which helps devices infer from experience what users are likely to want next, relies on crunching vast troves of data to provide unprompted services, such as the scores for a favorite sports team or reminders of when to leave for an appointment based on traffic.The larger the universe of users providing data about their habits, the better predictions can be about what an individual might want. But Apple analyzes its users’ behavior under self-imposed constraints to better protect their data from outsiders.That means Apple largely relies on analyzing the data on each user’s iPhone rather than sending it to the cloud, where it can be studied alongside information from millions of others.”They want to make a phone that responds to you very quickly without knowledge of the rest of the world,” said Joseph Gonzalez, co-founder of Dato, a machine learning startup. “It’s harder to do that.”BEYOND SIRIThe Cupertino-based tech titan’s strategy will come into clearer focus on Sept. 9, when it is expected to reveal its new iPhones and latest mobile operating system, iOS 9. Apple has promised the release will include a variety of intelligent reminders, which analysts expect will rival the offerings from Google’s Android.While Apple helped pioneer mobile intelligence -it’s Siri introduced the concept of a digital assistant to consumers in 2011 – the company has since lost ground to Google andMicrosoft, whose digital assistants have become more adept at learning about users and helping them with their daily routines.As users increasingly demand phones that understand them and tailor services accordingly, Apple cannot afford to let the gap persist, experts say. The iPhone generated almost two-thirds of Apple’s revenue in the most recent quarter, so even a small advantage for Android poses a threat.”What seemed like science fiction only four years ago has become an expectation,” said venture capitalist Gary Morgenthaler, who was one of the original investors in Siri before it was acquired by Apple in 2010.PLAYING CATCH-UPWhile Apple got off to a slow start on hiring for machine learning jobs, it is closing in on its competitors, said Oren Etzioni, who is CEO of the Allen Institute for Artificial Intelligence and a professor at the University of Washington.”In the past, Apple has not been at the vanguard of machine learning and cutting edge artificial intelligence work, but that is rapidly changing,” he said. “They are after the best and the brightest, just like everybody else.”Acquisitions of startups such as podcasting app Swell, social media analytics firm Topsy and personal assistant app Cue have also expanded Apple’s pool of experts in the field.Apple does not reveal the number of people working on its machine learning efforts.But one former Apple employee in the area, who asked not to be named to protect professional relationships, estimated the number of machine learning experts had tripled or quadrupled in the past few years.Many of the currently posted positions are slated for software efforts, from building on Siri’s smarts to the burgeoning search features in iOS. The company is also hiring machine learning experts for divisions such as product marketing and retail, suggesting a broad-based effort to capitalize on data.Apple’s hiring mirrors a larger hunt in Silicon Valley for people who can help companies make sense of their huge stashes of data, said Ali Behnam, managing partner of Riviera Partners, an executive search firm. Data scientists are the most sought-after experts in the market, he noted.Asked for comment about Apple’s strategy, a company spokeswoman pointed to statements from Craig Federighi, senior vice president of Software Engineering, who described the release at a developers’ conference in June as “adding intelligence throughout the user experience in a way that enhances how you use your device but without compromising your privacy, things like improving the apps that you use most.”But Google and others have an edge in spotting larger trends, meaning Apple’s predictions may not be as good, said Gonzalez, echoing a commonly held view among machine learning experts.What’s more, there are some features for which Apple has yet to find an answer, such as Now on Tap, which Google will release this fall. When users press the home button,Google will scan their screens to deliver helpful information – a user reading about an upcoming movie, for example, might receive reviews or a list of showtimes. It would be difficult to deliver such services without sending data to the cloud, experts say.ACCESS TO DATASome techniques Apple and Google are investing in – such as deep learning, a hot field of machine learning that roughly simulates the human brain so that computers can spot patterns and classify information – require massive amounts of data that typically cannot be crunched on the device alone.For machine learning experts at Apple, access to data complicates the work at every turn, former employees said. Siri enjoys some of Apple’s most liberal privacy policies, holding onto user information for up to six months. Other services, such as Apple Maps, retain information for as little as 15 minutes, the former employee said.Machine learning experts who want unfettered access to data tend to shy away from jobs at Apple, former employees say.But Apple is strengthening ties to academia to find the talent it will need, attending more industry conferences and discussing its use of tools emerging from university labs, academics say.”They are gradually engaging a little more openly,” said Michael Franklin, who directs UC Berkeley’s Algorithms, Machines and People Lab, which Apple sponsors.And some machine learning experts might be enticed by the challenge of matching Google’s smarts amid privacy constraints, suggested John Duchi, an assistant professor at Stanford University.”New flavors of problems are exciting,” he said.If Apple succeeds without compromising privacy, its Mountain View rival may face questions about its approach to analyzing users’ data.”People might start to ask Google for more privacy,” Gonzalez said.(Reporting by Julia Love; Editing by Steve Trousdale and Sue Horton) Register Now » Free Webinar | Sept 5: Tips and Tools for Making Progress Toward Important Goals Attend this free webinar and learn how you can maximize efficiency while getting the most critical things done right.last_img read more

first_imgBy Morgan Sung2019-01-21 18:58:15 UTC Your electric scooter could one day be autonomous. Uber is working on self-driving scooters and bikes, according to 3DRobotics CEO Chris Anderson. The company announced plans to explore electric scooters and bikes that can drive themselves to charging stations and riders. In a tweet on Saturday, Anderson revealed that the ride-hailing app is hiring engineers for “Micromobility Robotics” — a division under JUMP, Uber’s on-demand rideshare for bikes and scooters. Its main group, Uber Advance Technologies Group, will continue its work on self-driving cars.Although there are few public details about the initiative, TechCrunch found a Google Form for career opportunities that says: “The New Mobilities team at Uber is exploring ways to improve safety, rider experience, and operational efficiency of our shared electric scooters and bicycles through the application of sensing and robotics technologies.”The news comes less than a year after one of Uber’s self-driving cars struck and killed a woman outside of Phoenix, Arizona. With self-driving bikes and scooters, Uber could more efficiently replace vehicles with low batteries with freshly charged alternatives. Combined with removable batteries, which Uber revealed in December, the company aims to guarantee a more reliable, accessible fleet of bikes and scooters.last_img read more

Donald J.This post is in partnership with Inc which offers useful advice resources and insights to entrepreneurs and business owners The article below was originally published at Inccom Monday mornings are the most critical time of the workweek as they set the stage for the day and week ahead “Because you’ve stepped away for a couple days these back-to-work mornings are the most memorable for the rest of the week” says Lynn Taylor a national workplace expert and the author of Tame Your Terrible Office Tyrant: How to Manage Childish Boss Behavior and Thrive in Your Job “They influence your mindset in a positive or negative way depending on what actions you decide to take” Most successful people are keenly aware of the typical Monday morning workplace dynamic of unanticipated events overflow of communications and general chaos “But after weathering hundreds of them they realize they must gain control and stay upbeat” Taylor explains “They take extra steps to compensate for this busy time of the week and apply their best management skills to ensure that the day unfolds as smoothly as possible” Here are 15 things successful people do on Monday mornings: They wake up early and exercise This gets your circulation going and helps you stay alert putting you at an advantage for a productive week ahead “You’ll get your endorphin rush which will help your mood too” Taylor explains They eat a healthy breakfast On Monday morning you want to handle everything you have control over Eating breakfast is one of those things “You don’t want to be staring at the clock awaiting lunchtime as your stomach growls at morning meetings” she says They arrive early Do not succumb to the snooze button “Commutes are bad on Monday so beat the odds” Taylor says Plus getting in earlier than others will help make Monday morning seem more like the afternoon because you’ll have had a chance to breathe before responding to the barrage of people and issues “Being an early bird will give you some wiggle room for the unexpected at work not to mention any important personal matters that may arise” she says They clear their desk and desktop “Hopefully you already did this before you left on Friday” Taylor says “But if you didn’t get this out of the way or you might add to Monday stresses in a sea of disorganization” Organize and prioritize your files Put aside unimportant paperwork and keep critical files easily accessible You want to be prepared when you your boss or colleagues need something at the last minute They carve out time for unexpected projects and tasks Successful individuals expect the unexpected on Monday she says “Your boss team members or staff may have remembered some loose ends over the weekend” she says “so you’re wise to build in some extra downtime on Monday morning” They greet their team and boss This is important to do first thing every morning to keep morale high but on Monday it’s particularly valuable as your team needs a special boost “Ideally you’ll spend an few extra minutes with your colleagues on Monday mornings” Taylor explains “It reinforces a sense of purpose and community for everyone including you” They update their to-do list and goals “Get yourself current on priorities and tasks” Taylor suggests Then set five to eight goals for the week “Accomplished professionals have several goals in mind for the day and week” she says “They know that if all goals aren’t achieved they can take pride in accomplishing most of them and there’s next week to achieve additional objectives” They visualize the week’s successes By envisioning the positive outcomes of various projects at hand you can work backwards and determine the necessary steps to get your desired results They screen emails for urgent requests You can sink into email oblivion if you don’t scan your inbox for urgency Taylor says “Star emails that are priorities and think quality not quantity” she says They tackle the tough challenges first The least desirable but critical projects are easy to put off but your energy is stronger in the morning so that’s the ideal time to confront the most difficult assignments They make an extra effort to smile “It might be the last thing on your mind but overcompensating for the pressure-cooker morning will help you get through it” she says You may well stand out in the crowd but your smile will likely be contagious helping both you and team members relax They add a “blanket of humanity” to their emails It’s tempting to power through all your emails in the most efficient way on Monday mornings But before you hit Send read them over to ensure that they’re friendly and clear “Put yourself in the recipient’s shoes” Taylor says “It’s relatively easy to appear curt when you’re in a hurry along with the impersonal nature of emails and texts You want to mitigate false starts and misinterpretations” One way to do this: Start the email by saying “Hi” and “I hope you had a great weekend” They’re able to say no “On Monday mornings there will be many distractions–from people to emails to calls meetings offers for meeting in the break room and so forth” Taylor explains “Successful people can diplomatically and politely say no to colleagues by offering to engage at a later time” If your boss needs you that is clearly an exception However if you have crucial calls to make or meetings to attend give your boss the heads-up “It’s stressful to be a people pleaser particularly on Monday mornings” she says “Generally no one ends up being pleased as you can’t do your best work with conflicting priorities” They stay focused Successful people don’t dwell on any challenging events that occurred over the weekend or other frivolous thoughts “Compartmentalize by putting them in a separate box as you start your week” she says They remember that there is Tuesday “In all the chaos it’s easy to believe that the world will cave if you don’t solve all Monday’s problems on Monday” she says “But when the dust settles at the end of the day you may realize that certain tasks could have waited” Sometimes you obtain more information over time that enhances your decision-making process Or you may find that certain problems you’re pondering will resolve themselves Monday morning can challenge even the most industrious successful business leaders “But if you compensate for all the anticipated distraction and intensity by remembering to focus plan and stay calm you won’t relive Monday all over again on Tuesday” Taylor concludes Read more from Inccom: The Most Important
