From Round to Square (and back)

For The Emperor's Teacher, scroll down (↓) to "Topics." It's the management book that will rock the world (and break the vase, as you will see). Click or paste the following link for a recent profile of the project:

A new post appears every day at 12:05* (CDT). There's more, though. Take a look at the right-hand side of the page for over four years of material (2,000 posts and growing) from Seinfeld and country music to every single day of the Chinese lunar calendar...translated. Look here ↓ and explore a little. It will take you all the way down the page...from round to square (and back again).
*Occasionally I will leave a long post up for thirty-six hours, and post a shorter entry at noon the next day.

The frontal cortex. Libidinal emotion. Limbic sensation. Testosterone.

Mix, wait, and start "the count."

Everything in football (and, to varying degrees in other competitions) depends on getting it just right. If you think Pierre Bourdieu was onto something with situational strategizing, well, this takes it to a whole new level.

Aggression and tamped-down behavior, all rolled into one complex human operation.

What would we do without the frontal cortex?
