Destination Madagascar

Continued from The rain seemed relentless.  If you have just joined this story and wish to start from the beginning, go to What goes around comes around. Within two days, Jimmy had said. Within two days they would hit Madagascar. Jones realised he hadn’t even thought about where they were going, other than it was close […]

Language, Free Speech, Racism and Sexism

On October 2012 I expressed my concerns over the use of language in society. Since then things seem to have worsened. We still have nasty personal attacks being made in the public domain and I am often tempted to unfollow people on social media because they “attack the man not the ball”. I also looked […]

What’s in it for ME?

Managing change is part of my day job. One of the catch phrases we use these days is “what’s in it for me”. In “selling” change in an organisation we need to show the employees, the board, the management and all other stakeholders “what’s in it for them”. If you don’t believe me, Google “change […]

The Danger of the Monster Myth

Originally posted on White Ribbon Campaign:
Tom Meagher One of the most disturbing moments of the past eighteen months of my life was hearing my wife’s killer form a coherent sentence in court. Jill had been murdered almost six months earlier, and Adrian Bayley’s defence team were presenting a rather feeble case for a four-week…

That damn feminist word again

Five days. I have been stewing over an article I read for five days. Most unlike me, I am sure most will agree: after all I rattled off “Who IS the boss around here?” in the heat of the moment. This time, however, my immediate reaction was confusion and self-doubt. I hear some readers thinking […]

Pondering the value of money in simple terms

The older I get, the more I doubt the wisdom of chasing rainbows. In order to receive good wages, workers must be employed by companies making money. A company that is not making money goes out of business and the employees are then looking for work. If shareholders do not earn a return on their […]

I do not accept corruption – do you?

We should be holding our public figures to account. Today Barry O’Farrell resigned as Premier of NSW over a bottle of Grange. A $3,000 bottle, to be precise. Let me put this into a commercial context. A few years ago I worked for an international company. Acceptance of gifts of any value over about $20 was […]

Work until I am 70

I read Mr Hockey wants us to work until we are 70. If the Abbott government decides to further raise the pension age, it would be staggered over half a decade or more. Read more: SMH - Good article, covers a lot of considerations I probably can work until I am 70, provided I stay on hormone […]

The rain seemed relentless

Continued from Jones prayed. If you have just joined this story and wish to start from the beginning, go to What goes around comes around. The Indian Ocean is not a friendly place. The world had learnt much more about this particular part of the world when a Malaysian Airlines flight had disappeared. The currents, the […]

Who IS the boss around here?

Democracy, we are told, is government of the people, by the people, for the people. Yet in the last few months it seems we are to be controlled, not governed in the true sense of a democratic society. Dear Current Government: you work for the people. Just a reminder. The first warning bells sounded with […]
