Legendary Silicon Valley visionary John Chambers shares his playbook and philosophy that transformed Cisco into a global tech titan and now inspire a new generation of leaders. Over 20 years, John Chambers transformed a company with 400 employees and one toaster-sized product (a router) into a tech giant that's the backbone of the Internet. Along the way, he's outlasted and outmaneuvered practically every rival that ever tried to take Cisco on-Nortel, Lucent, Alcatel, IBM, Dell, and Hewlett-Packard, to name a few-and turned more than 10,000 employees into millionaires, more than any company in history. When Chambers stepped down as executive chairman in December of 2017, he left a company that didn't just shape the first Internet era but is leading the next wave of innovation in areas from cyber-security to self-driving cars. Now, in collaboration with award-winning journalist Diane Brady, Chambers shares the stories and strategies that helped his company win again and again through multiple market shifts. From his early lessons and struggles with dyslexia in West Virginia to his bold bets and battles with some of the biggest names in tech, Chambers developed a series of playbooks for beating the odds and staying on top. He shares the playbook that helped Cisco buy 180 companies with a track record that's now studied at business schools worldwide. He explains how he built winning teams and a distinctive culture, and created a process for spotting market shifts and managing through periods of disruption. Perhaps the most powerful playbook from Chambers is the one that's still being formed: how to reinvent yourself. He is adapting his playbook for government, becoming a trusted advisor to global leaders to create new models for growth. He's coaching a new generation of leaders of game-changing startups. Now, he's taking those lesson to West Virginia to transform his home state into a digital leader. Connecting the Dots is essential reading for anyone who wants to understand how to lead and win in a digital world.

Organizations are struggling for greater return on their multibillion-dollar technology and project-related investments. Individual projects may be useful, but when examined collectively, they often work at cross-purposes, duplicate each other's efforts, or aim for obsolescing business objectives. And all are competing for scarce resources. In today's earnings-driven business environment, companies must look to their portfolios to better deliver on objectives and propel the organization forward.Based on their experience with a variety of companies, authors Cathleen Benko and distinguished professor F. Warren McFarlan have developed an alignment approach that better connects an organization's project portfolio to its corporate objectives in a manner responsive to today's unpredictable environment."Connecting the Dots" provides a scalable framework and practical tools for better aligning a company's: project portfolio with its objectives; individual projects with each other; and portfolio and objectives with the volatile environment. Better-aligned companies enhance business/technology performance by increasing shareholder value and confidence and improving the portfolio's return on investment. This in-the-trenches guidebook helps companies capture this latent value while building a more adaptive organization. Cathleen Benko is Braxton's Global e-Business Leader. F. Warren McFarlan is the Senior Associate Dean and Albert H. Gordon Professor of Business Administration at Harvard Business School.

Despite its size and social diversity, the United States is one nation, and what happens in one city or neighborhood ultimately affects all Americans. Connecting the Dots addresses the complex relationships between family and community, and between community and other players affecting family and community life, including the private sector, government, nonprofit groups, and religious organizations. Contrary to much rhetoric, Wireman argues that America does not suffer from a loss of family values, but from a shift in business practices and public commitments. The American dream of work hard, buy a home, and give your children a better life is no longer realistic for millions of workers, both white-collar and blue-collar. At an individual level, millions of Americans face significant challenges as they go about trying to meet the everyday responsibilities of earning an income, feeding their families, maintaining their health, finding housing, handling everyday household chores, and caring for their children. Besides identifying top-down structures, laws, and attitudes that create a supportive context for family life, the book includes bottom-up anecdotal examples to ground its policy-oriented discussion. It also provides statistical data needed to develop realistic solutions. Wireman examines diversity as well, since how America handles racial and ethnic differences remains crucial to its future. She discusses ways in which communities have created social capital, community cohesion, and local organizational ability. Wireman provides a framework for policymakers, local community leaders, and neighborhood activists to use in analyzing their situations and selecting the best approach; she also describes what various players can and must do to uphold the American dream. Connecting the Dots will be of keen interest to sociologists, political scientists, economists, and social workers.

I grew up in a large family in Kansas City, Missouri. I had no siblings and my father was not in the home. My wonderful mother was a mere 15 years old when she became pregnant with me. She and I really did grow up together! I was in junior high school before I ever called her "mom" For my personal protection and development, my young single mother uprooted herself from her parents and relocated to Kansas City, Kansas, which enabled me to attend Sumner High School, the high school of both my parents. With much help from my family, neighbors, school teachers, and students, I developed a new and unexpected vision and an attitude to achieve after I had clearly become a truant. The Sumner high school students, particularly my classmates, were the most influential to my success. They gave me a wonderful and critical "vote of confidence" by electing me president of our class for four consecutive years. The students and teachers, with my mother's leadership, absolutely changed my view of myself! They instilled the seeds of ambition and accomplishment in my vision. My mother served to direct this new and unexpected energy. Clearly, based on existing evidence, my new ambition was not innate! It evolved from uncontrolled circumstances. Without a plan or an identified dream, I had a wonderfully successful thirty year marketing career with the IBM Corporation. I promoted the Universal Product Code (UPC) in the early days, well before it had become proven technology accepted in the worldwide retail industry.

We are experiencing major health crises in America today. Obesity, chronic illnesses, illicit drug use, mental health issues, sexually transmitted infections, and the abuse of alcohol are all on the rise. These public health issues are killing Americans every day, not to mention greatly affecting their quality of life. Christians are hurting physically, mentally, and spiritually and desperately searching for answers. There is a great disconnect among professing Christians, regarding how a lack of obedience can greatly impact one's health. The Bible serves not only to teach us but protect us. Did you know that God's word is the ultimate vaccine to many of these health problems? In between the front and back cover of our Bibles, lies the great truths that prevent a great number of these issues. Obedience to God's word is protection from the enemy. The intent of this book is to reveal how a lack of obedience will lead to negative and preventable health consequences. The Bible and our health are connected. There are answers to the different health crises we face today, in God's Holy Word. In order to create future healthy generations, we must educate ourselves and our children on these issues. Let's explore some of them together.

Harry W. Arthurs is a name held in high esteem by labour lawyers and academics throughout the world. Although many are familiar with Arthurs's contributions and accomplishments, few are acquainted with the man himself, or how he came to be one of the most influential figures in Canadian law and legal education. In Connecting the Dots Arthurs recounts his adventures in academe and the people, principles, ideas, motivations, and circumstances that have shaped his thinking and his career. The memoir offers intimate recollections and observations, beginning with the celebrated ancestors who influenced Arthurs's upbringing and education. It then sweeps through his career as an architect of important reforms in legal education and explores his research as a trailblazing commentator on the legal profession. Arthurs analyzes his experiences as a legal theorist and historian and his pivotal role as a discordant voice in debates over constitutional and administrative law. Along the way, he muses on the intellectual projects he embraced or set in motion, the institutional reforms he advocated, the public policies he recommended, and how they fared long term. Framed with commentary on the historical context that shaped each decade of his career and punctuated by moments of personal reflection, Connecting the Dots is a humorous, frank, and fearless account of the rise and fall of Canadian labour law from the man who was at the centre of it all.

Helen Kanevsky dismantles the separation between fact and fiction in her new poetry collection that enlightens with imagery but also delves into literal truth. Life, the endless reverse from which Helen Kanevsky draws her bitter-sweet poetic brew, is just too weird to grasp and maybe not worth grasping ("Life violates every code of decency"). It is "Rabbis in kimonos munching on gefilte fish sushi." It is an entity that, when you think you've found the particles from which it is constructed, turned into a wave and scatters - its meaning ever elusive, and fading into old recollections. And yet, there is that reality that must be connected with sobriety. As the poet says, "Memories are useless ballast ... until you are brought in for questioning." Reality in Helen's poems defies exactitude, best captured not by exciting exposition, but in the Kanevsky-esque disquisition. And, it is FUN! Bruce Neuburger, writer, educator, and peace activist

Connecting The Dots Between Inflammation And The Inner Workings Of Programmed Cell Death

Programmed cell death (PCD) is central in maintaining the life of multicellular organisms, during development as well as in healthy adulthood or in the context of disease. The best understood form of PCD is apoptosis, a caspase mediated, immunologically silent cell death that can be initiated in probably all cell types upon aging, lack of growth support, critical damage or infection. One of the key pathways of apoptosis involves mitochondrial outer membrane permeabilization (MOMP), a process tightly regulated by members of the BCL-2 family. Whereas PCD and apoptosis were used synonymously in the past, other forms of PCD have been discovered more recently, including RIPK1/3- and MLKL-dependent necroptosis, resulting in a necrotic phenotype, and pyroptosis. Interestingly, key components of the necroptotic pathway are actively suppressed by apoptotic caspases, and this interconnection allows a switch in cell death modalities with greatly impact on the host’s immune response. Recent findings link mitochondria and/or MOMP to non-apoptotic forms of PCD, including ferroptosis and necroptosis, putting this organelle even more in the center of cellular death. This article collection highlights the exciting potential and as yet undiscovered regulation of programmed cell death that can impact the immune system and its response.

In his previously written articles and books, Chris Edwards has argued that teaching should be considered a field that is separate from both the field of education and from the content area fields. Teaching is a field which synthesizes content and method for classroom application. All of the other major intellectual fields have a canon of works which practitioners can learn from and add to, but teaching does not. The Connecting the Dots in World History: A Teacher’s Literacy-Based Curriculum series changes this by showing how effective a teacher-generated curriculum can be. These books can inspire other teachers to create their own curricula and inspire a change in the way that the public views teachers and teaching.

Rationality can answer a number of the most central questions about our existence and our universe: Why are we here? How did the universe come into existence and how will it end? What is the purpose and where will we go after death? In Philosophy of life - Connecting Dots, author Ashok Kumar Sood explores a rational and analytical approach to answer these fundamental questions about human nature and existence and he looks to the facts about our universe and about human psychology to find rational answers. Philosophy of life starts with a curiosity and uses a methodology grounded in rationality to investigate both the physical aspects of the universe as well as the psychological aspects of the human mind. It further explores the role of perception and imagination in human life and it shows how maintaining physical, mental, social and environmental health can improve quality of life. While religion and spirituality have offered traditional answers to life`s most important questions, a rational approach grounded in the facts of our existence can provide a more concrete foundation for optimal living. Philosophy of life connecting dots can show you how to use this rationality to accomplish the ultimate goals of life and live with tranquility, happiness and satisfaction.
