Monster 5 for Friday: Futurama Edition

While we might not know exactly what tomorrow may bring, we do know that the future, and its uncertainties, are always only a day away. As the pioneering programmer Alan Kay once stipulated, “the only way to predict the future is to invent it,” and while we might not be able to control the future, we can (to the best of our ability, anyway) plan for it.

Monster 5 for Friday: Veterans Day Edition

In the push and pull and cacophony and confusion of our constantly connected world, we forget that the simplest gestures can translate to a world of difference. Whether it’s a pat on the back or a word of encouragement, there are myriad ways to express gratitude and dam the river of stress, smartphones and social media we all swim in, if only for a moment.

How do you define beauty? To you, is it more beautiful to watch the mayhem as a favorite sports team celebrates a championship-clinching score, or to watch the serenity of a forest as it changes colors in response to Fall’s advancing chill?

In today’s edition of the Wall Street Journal, you’ll see a full page ad from Monster reminding us all that for the millions of people looking for work, and the countless employers looking to hire, Labor Day doesn’t happen once a year.

Monster 5 for Friday – Labor Day Edition

Without laboring over a definition, labor can be back-breaking, invigorating, tedious or inspiring. Labor can be a mere chore, or something borne out of passion. Labor can be a spouse cursing their partner for the better part of a day (or two). And as it replies to the hiring process and matching candidates with opportunities in which they, and the organization, will flourish, it takes arduous months of, well, hard labor on the part of HR and recruiting professionals.
