That’s one busy baby! Emil Nyström, a Sweden-based photographer has created a photo series starring his infant daughter, doctoring the images so she’s placed in all sorts of crazy scenarios—soaring through the air on the back of a plane, slicing fruit with a katana sword, fixing a car engine—you know, all the stuff babies do. “My ideas and inspiration come from different places,” Nyström said. “Luckily, I haven’t had too many challenges. The main thing is to prepare the setup well. And because my baby isn’t too good at long working hours, if i get 15 minutes [of shots] I’ve had a good day.” And your day will be better after checking out these photos.

Korean Christianity’s illness befalls Full Gospel Church 

By Kim Tong-hyung

Prosecutors will chase the leader of world’s largest Christian congregation for allegedly stealing tens of billions of won in worshippers’ money and underpaying taxes.
Their decision to indict Cho Yong-gi, founder and pastor of the Yoido Full Gospel Church, on Saturday was another kick in the teeth for the country’s mighty but increasingly unpopular protestant church, frequently described as greedy, dishonest and socially regressive. Cho and some members of the church’s senior leadership have fallen out spectacularly in recent years as the 77-year-old minister came under constant accusations of corruption and nepotism. A group of church elders in 2011 filed a complaint with prosecutors claiming that Cho diverted more than 20 billion Korean won (about $18 million) in the church’s fund to acquire the stocks of a company owned by his son, Hee-jun, at prices dramatically higher than market value in 2002. The younger Cho, former chairman of the church-affiliated newspaper Kookmin Ilbo, currently serving a jail term for an unrelated financial crime, had sustained heavy losses from stock investments then.

Why have a ‘culture’ and what value does it add?

Why have a ‘culture’ and what value does it add?

Managers regularly ask us whether we think it is a good idea for their organizations to have a culture and what value it might add. The question is interesting because it presumes a company does not already have a culture. This is a myth.

All organizations inevitably have a culture; they do not have a choice. Its culture consists of its values and principles as they are expressed through management and employee behaviors and the organization’s systems and processes. An organization’s culture often reflects the values of its founders: Whether it’s Sam Walton of WalMart or Steve Jobs for Apple, one can clearly see the impact its founder and his or her values on what happens in that organization.  Read more of this post

How to Demotivate Your Best Employees; Many companies hand out awards such as “employee of the month,” but do they work to motivate performance? Not really, says professor Ian Larkin. In fact, they may turn off your best employees altogether

How to Demotivate Your Best Employees

by Dina Gerdeman | Jun 10, 2013

Many companies hand out awards such as “employee of the month,” but do they work to motivate performance? Not really, says professor Ian Larkin. In fact, they may turn off your best employees altogether

It would seem to make sense that when companies recognize their workers with awards, they are likely to see a boost in morale and perhaps even inspire them to work harder.

It turns out that sometimes rewarding employees for good behavior can actually backfire, leading to a drop in motivation and productivity.  Read more of this post

Canada’s Entrepreneur of the Year, Alan Ulsifer of FYidoctors, has transformed the optical industry by creating a giant network of opticians who bring new products and diagnostics technology to clients from coast to coast.

MONACO — “Entrepreneurs make the world work better.” That was the message from Ernst & Young’s incoming chief executive, Mark Weinberger, as he kicked off the World Entrepreneur of the Year conference last week in Monte Carlo. A full 47 countries (including first-time participants Uruguay and Serbia) sent their entrepreneurial champions to the combined competition/professional-development/networking session, and the enthusiasm was infectious.
