Blog Guest Contributors 10You’ve heard the adage that the best leaders frequently say, “no.” But it’s one thing to hear the advice and another to experience it.

2023 interest rate increase rising inflation new 2022 10 27 02 51 01 utcAs the turn of the year approaches, the annual ritual of identifying tech trends and making predictions for the next solar orbit swings into action.

That’s the big idea being presented to the European Space Agency (ESA) in November 2022, as part of the sci-fi sounding Solaris project.

Atenwebsummit1 519831 kuwlnwThe average person spends as much as three hours a day managing their work email, according to a study by Adobe. That stat almost sounds hard to believe, until you think about how often you get a notification, stop what you're doing, open your email app, read a message, and then try to figure out what you should do with it.
