Monday's Morning Email: Dissecting Trump's False Claim About The Popular Vote

TOP STORIES THE AFTERMATH OF DONALD TRUMP’S FALSE POPULAR VOTE CLAIMS The president-elect tweeted Sunday that “millions of people who voted illegally” were the reason Hillary Clinton won the popular vote after responding to a recount push in three states. The tweet appears to be based in a stat circulating from Infowars. And here’s how the media plays into tweets like this. [Michael Calderone, HuffPost] THE AFTERMATH OF FIDEL CASTRO’S DEATH The controversial revolutionary leader and former head of state of Cuba died at the age of 90. Take a look at his life in photos, the reaction of global leaders to his death and how Cuban-Americans in Little Havana responded. Trump’s chief of staff said Sunday that the diplomatic ties re-established with Cuba will be reversed unless further concessions are made.  And it turns out Justin Trudeau can do wrong on Twitter ― the Canadian prime minister came under fire after calling Castro a “larger than life leader.” [Jesselyn Cook, HuffPost] LAST MONTH WAS THE 15TH ANNIVERSARY OF THE WAR IN AFGHANISTAN David Wood examines how the Trump administration will address America’s longest war in the failing country.

14 Ways to Balance Work Time With Family Time This Holiday Season

The holidays are a time to spend with the people you love, but it's easy to get caught up in your work. Here's how you can spend time with loved ones without staring at your laptop screen.   A. Leave Your Laptop at the Office Every entrepreneur is in a relationship with their business. When an email or call comes in late at night, we jump to get the job done. Once the laptop is open, times flies and the night is gone before you even realize it. When I want to guarantee my focus for the night is on family, I leave my laptop at the office. No access to work means no time spent working. - Andrew Hoeft, Date Check Pro A. Schedule With Google Calendar I use Google Calendar to make sure I'm balancing my time between my business and personal life. The first thing I enter into my calendar is any family commitments for the month. Then, I add in business meetings and other work tasks that need to be done. The only way to achieve balance is by adding in the most important things first and fitting everything else around them. - Nicole Munoz, Start Ranking Now A. Take Time Off When Your Clients Are Off A lot of our consulting clients are out of the office over the holidays, so we use that as an excuse to take vacations and close up the office. Our sales team can't get ahold of anyone anyways, so they don't get much value during that time. - Josh Fuhr, Auditrax A. Switch Up Your Work Hours During the holidays, I tend to work early mornings and evenings so I can spend the bulk of my time with my family. I prefer to do as much as I can in the mornings so I can spend the rest of the day and evening enjoying holiday festivities. Typically, most of my business contacts are also taking breaks during this time, so the work is much lighter. - Murray Newlands, Due.com A. Designate a Space and Time to Work From Home It's not easy to unplug, especially if a new project is being picked up immediately after the holiday season. To take advantage of working from home and seeing a little more of loved ones, designate spaces and time for work at home. It's the best way to balance without compromising the quality of your work. Family will understand, and clients will be pleasantly surprised. - Cody McLain, SupportNinja A. Don't Be Afraid to Say 'No' I have to say "no" more than usual during the holidays. I usually frame it as, "Now isn't a great time, as I have plans with my daughter." Spending time with my kids is very important to me, so it makes it easier to say no. Who really wants to argue with you when you say "no" due to family time anyway? Saying "no" during the holidays is the only way I can keep my balance. - Drew Gurley, Redbird Advisors A. Leave On Time Everyday During the holidays (or any busy time, really), I always make it a point to leave the office right at 5 p.m. and go home to spend time with my wife and kids. Once everyone is in bed, I get more work done and "finish the day" if I need to. This way, I spend time with family and stay on task with the business, which is especially important for our retail clients during the madness of Q4. - Dan Golden, Be Found Online A. Put Trust in Others and Delegate Rather than trying to do everything yourself, successful entrepreneurs need to put trust in their team and delegate work to create balance. If you're able to effectively train employees and build a great company culture, you can learn to trust others and delegate tasks without having to worry. This process starts with hiring independent employees who aren't afraid to step up when the time comes. - Anthony Pezzotti, Knowzo.com A. Make Family Time Non-Negotiable I live a very scheduled life, and I take the time I spend with family and friends as seriously as any other item on my to-do list -- no skipping or pushing off. I don't consider family time as "time off." Spending time with loved ones is what makes any of this worthwhile in the first place. - Adam Steele, Loganix A. Work Ahead of the Holidays I prefer to work more ahead of time so that I can close the office for a couple of days and let employees enjoy the time off as well. We usually don't have much going on during the holidays anyways, so closing up sends the message that it's everyone's time to spend with family. - Angela Ruth, Due.com A. Set Clear Boundaries One of the biggest mistakes I've made is trying to work on my laptop while my family sits around the table at breakfast. Trying to be a part of the conversation while still being engaged in my business simply doesn't work. Block off a few hours when you can focus exclusively on work, then block off the hours when you can focus exclusively on family. Everyone will be happier. - Carter Thomas, Bluecloud Solutions A. Plan and Prioritize I plan out the busy holiday season carefully, including my personal and professional time. I think carefully about my priorities and goals by the end of the year. This holiday season, I'm welcoming my third child into the world. And as you can imagine, my planning is in overdrive. By making a plan and setting priorities ahead of time, I can expect a less hectic holiday season. - Robby Berthume, Bull & Beard A. Schedule Tasks in Advance One of the best ways to make time for family is to schedule out content, tasks and events, as soon as possible. This allows you to take an advisory role over the business and its day-to-day operations rather than needing to complete these individual tasks manually on a daily basis. - Zac Johnson, Blogger A. Make Room For Uninterrupted Time Balancing time between work and family is all about being flexible, working remotely, and blocking off the necessary uninterrupted time that should be spent with loved ones. I'm also very lucky to have a team who I give autonomy to, knowing full well that they are capable of holding themselves to the same high standards in and out of the office during the holiday season. - Bryanne Lawless, BLND Public Relations These answers are provided by the Young Entrepreneur Council (YEC), an invite-only organization comprised of the world's most promising young entrepreneurs. In partnership with Citi, YEC recently launched BusinessCollective, a free virtual mentorship program that helps millions of entrepreneurs start and grow businesses. -- This feed and its contents are the property of The Huffington Post, and use is subject to our terms.

Psychological Policy For Presidents: The Deplorable Dilemma

Just when I thought this Campaign couldn't get worse, I woke up so to speak, to the deplorability speech of Hillary Clinton. That contained her descriptions of Donald Trump supporters, as haters, as bad, as deplorable, as (ouch!) "a basket of deplorables". I could hardly believe my ears, for a few reasons. One is that I have been struggling to understand the appeal of Donald Trump to so many people, and in so doing I have found myself looking for the underbelly of his attraction to all of us, whether we love or hate him. The search involves an understanding from within as well. This means a struggle to avoid quick moral judgment, especially when it is our neighbors that we are judging. In addition there is the need--and herein has lied a flaw of many Liberals--to diminish our feeling privileged when it comes to moral rectitude. If Jung was right about the shadow, then we are all potential murderers. And when we put ourselves in the position of aggressive judge with demeaning overtones, we are little better than those we are demeaning. We look for attractiveness; let's say charisma, for strength, for wisdom even, in a leader. But we don't tend to really ask ourselves about what would be the President's capacity for calling a spade a spade, for telling the truth and asking us to share in solutions. And we tend to ignore policies regarding psychological fitness and practices, except in a very narrow perspective. We are used to the banter of back and forth allegations of insanity in one's opponent. And God forbid, someone should be exposed as having been on psychotropic medication (how high is that percentage for the country in general?) or having seen or having the need for, a therapist, and all hell would break loose. Let's return to Hillary, shall we? What is wrong with her? Or what is wrong with her advisers? Do any of them really think this is acceptable behavior to demean all Trump supporters? Does she not know she too is a racist who has directly or indirectly benefited from her own whiteness of physical neighborhood, as in suburb? Does she not know that even people who are criminals, who are homophobic, are also people who are also scared? I don't want to do the perennial Liberal dance of appearing to side with people who to me--especially those who defy the facts of climate change and will not consider gun control, among others--are upsetting beyond. However I do know that one of the things we are facing as a country is how on earth--really--we might live together with a modicum of desire, even, to share in looking at evidence and having a consensus instead of a constant warring amongst ourselves. And as such, to me any leader, any President would need to have skills in negotiating human frailties, and differences, with more of a power to bring understanding than to increase the hatred and humiliation that are abounding. Tons of Trump supporters have been or still are undecided. Several feel alienated and at a loss. Many of them feel terrible distrust of government, and the latter is what Hillary Clinton represents to many. Is she speaking to these people as people and trying to bring them into a discussion? Or is she just insulting them in the hopes that voters will see her as just as strong and aggressive as Donald Trump? And what would she do (or he for that matter) with the people who were the opponents in the Election--jail them/us or eject us or continue to bully? We haven't had much experience with strong people who know their weaknesses, well enough so that they don't have the need or the craving to bully others. We also don't see acknowledging mistakes or making an apology (okay, Trump on that birth issue, for example) out loud. We don't yet see psychological wisdom as including the humility of what it involves to be human--including how each of us is vulnerable to bullying and to becoming a bully. I hope Hillary Clinton gets ahold of her own tendency to bully her opponents, and to realize how nasty, defeating and how self-defeating this tactic is. I hope she does so in order to be electable. But also I hope she has that kind of character, where she allows herself to see how her terminology and condescension to Trump supporters, is also deplorable. There are some words in the English language, at least in America that are standouts for moral righteousness and superiority, and "deplorable" is one of them. "Appalled" would be another. At the same time, there is no doubt that some things are appalling and deplorable both. This isn't moral relativism in saying slavery and genocide, are signs of vulnerability and Hitler just needs--belatedly-- a little better understanding. It's more like acknowledging, that dammit, we are all complicit. Those of us who hate Trump are frequently having too much fun in the hating, in repeating ourselves over and over again, while we are part of the hatred, and the attraction to him. It's taken me a long time to get any of this; that we are all involved in the national climate. And part of the reason is that psychological fitness, one that really involves awareness of the breadth and depth of our own feelings, is really hardly stressed at all in our education. There is, to most of us the bully OR the bullied, and we stay resistant to knowing there can be both in one, and that we can be both as well. Lastly, Madam President (I hope), please know you will lead much more wisely if you open yourself up to the plethora of your emotional responses, and judge others AND yourself way less harshly than you seem to at present. -- This feed and its contents are the property of The Huffington Post, and use is subject to our terms.

What a Boomer (or Gen X) and Millennial learned from each other

My birth year straddles the Baby Boomer and the Gen X boundary so depending on what chart I look at I could be either. I kind of like that actually -- because I think we over generalize the traits about generational groups and end up with even more bias. Earlier this year, I moderated a panel on "millennial myths" at the HR Policy Association conference, a gathering of CHROs from around the country. We brought together four millennials from different companies to talk about myths and truths about their generation. It was eye opening. The most important lessons I learned? Take the time to learn more about each other as individuals instead of putting people in a box. And, that a "what can I learn/what can I teach" mindset is extremely productive. One of our panelists was Daniella Patrick. Daniella is a product manager at Accenture's Talent Innovation Lab - a creative team within HR that is charged with researching, ideating and developing innovative solutions that improve employees' experiences here at Accenture. She is a valued colleague of mine and I check­-in with her often to bounce ideas around. In the spirit of our "what can I learn/what can I teach" philosophy, I thought it would be fun and insightful for us to co-author a blog together--blurring the generational lines to share what we've learned from each other. Thank you, Daniella, for adding your voice to mine ... over to you! Daniella: Things I've Learned from Ellyn Be willing to teach and learn. One of my earliest "Accenture Adventure" experiences was when Ellyn and I coached a client together on ways to attract and inspire top talent. Ellyn modelled what it means to teach and to learn. First, she actively involved me in the conversation and asked for my opinion. And, afterward we discussed how the meeting went and she offered invaluable insights that I carry with me today on the importance of establishing collaborative and trusting professional relationships. Meaningful Connections. I've seen Ellyn work collaboratively with others inside Accenture as well as with other CHROs to ideate and bring solutions and experiences to life. Take Hackfest 2016 for example, where Ellyn is collaborating with LinkedIn's CHRO, Pat Wadors. This upcoming hackathon gathers students from all over India to solve complex human challenges in the workplace. It's clear from seeing them work together that Ellyn and Pat are friends first and coworkers second. Putting people first and connecting with them in a genuine way is what Ellyn is all about. Love what you do! I don't think anyone loves their company and their work more than Ellyn. It's infectious. While her demanding schedule and frequent travel are certainly challenging, her high energy and passionate way of working show that she simply thrives here at Accenture. Lead from Within. Ellyn takes on great challenges and brings bold ideas to life, which inspires others to take on greater challenges and be their best. In her few years as the Chief Leadership and HR Officer at Accenture, Ellyn launched Performance Achievement and in a very bold move shared Accenture's diversity stats with the world to push us all to do better. Thank you, Ellyn, for being the inspiring leader, mentor and colleague that you are, and for letting me co-author this blog with you! Ellyn: Things I've Learned from Daniella The bottom line is that Daniella helps me look at old problems in a new way. Here are some of things I've learned from her: Importance of being tech savvy - even when you aren't solving technology challenges. Daniella brings a technology lens to every problem, which is essential in the digital age. It's very important to bring both the human and digital perspective when looking at solving complex challenges. And, with her and others' help, I'm also very proud that I've become very tech savvy and active on social media. Straight talk. One of the things I value most about Daniella is that if asked for her opinion she shares it - unvarnished. Hierarchy does not get in the way. We view each other as equals. We listen to each other, share ideas and ultimately co-create together. Give people a voice. In this spirit of collaboration, it's important to give people an opportunity to step up -- early and often. Nine times out of ten they will grab ahold of that challenge and knock it out of the park. Daniella is proof of that. Hierarchy doesn't have a place in the workplace of the future. Collaboration across levels and tapping people for stretch assignments fuels innovation and helps people flourish both professionally and personally. Diversity brings greater creativity. We have an unwavering belief at Accenture that our diversity makes us smarter and more innovative. The relationship that I've forged with Daniella is a prime example of that. The different perspectives we bring because of our age, life experience and ethnicity all contribute to new ways of viewing the world. Talking things through with Daniella opens my eyes to things that I wouldn't have otherwise seen. And that is a really beautiful thing. It all starts with a meaningful conversation. Think about how you can broaden your circle to include older and younger colleagues and simply reach out. It comes down to connecting with each other as individuals to break through the myths and learn from each other. Daniella mentioned Hackfest 2016, planned for September 24-25 in Bangalore, where students will innovate solutions that elevate human performance at work. And, breaking down generational barriers at work is an important issue because for the first time in history, we have five generations together in the workplace. This presents a tremendous opportunity to innovate - by leveraging the unique strengths we each bring to the work environment. I'll share the great ideas that the hackers come up with in a future post. How do you break down generational barriers at work? Share your comments below and let's start a meaningful conversation now. -- This feed and its contents are the property of The Huffington Post, and use is subject to our terms.

DHS Prepares For Nuke Attack With Massive Order For Radiation Detectors

Submitted by Mac Slavo via SHTFPlan.com, Earlier this year we reported that Texas game wardens on the southern border have been issued radiation detectors due to concerns that a nuclear or radiological device could be smuggled into the United States through the porous Mexican border. It appears that the Department of Homeland Security is also taking the potential for a nuclear-based weapon of mass destruction seriously. According to a new report from NextGov the government has ordered some $20 million worth of wearable intelligent nuclear detection (WIND) units in an effort to boost domestic security: Last year, DHS made a broad agency announcement soliciting proposals for so-called Wearable Intelligent Nuclear Detection, or WIND, technology. Employees would wear the products to ensure nuclear devices weren’t secretly being transported in areas like marine vessels, metro systems, or other public areas, according to DHS.   DHS was specifically searching for “advanced technology demonstrations,” which are for “mature prototype capable of providing reliable performance measurements in a challenging and realistic, albeit simulated, operational environment,” the BAA said.   …   DHS’ Domestic Nuclear Detection Office, whose mission is to protect the U.S. from nuclear devices, was specifically searching for a modular wearable system that could sense, localize and identify nuclear particles, including gamma rays and neutrons. The move signals a real and emerging threat and one that the Obama administration highlighted in March in which they warned of the four ways a large-scale nuclear attack on U.S. soil could happen. Whatever the method, the end result would be devastating: The most devastating but improbable scenario involves a group stealing a fully functional bomb from a nuclear-armed country. Most nuclear experts point to Pakistan as the likeliest source, though that would require cooperation with someone on the inside of Pakistan’s military.   Easier to pull off would be for IS or another group to obtain fissile material like highly enriched uranium, then turn it into a crude nuclear device delivered by truck or ship.   A third possibility is that extremists could bomb an existing nuclear facility, such as the Belgian waste plant, spreading highly radioactive material over a wide area.   The most likely scenario that security experts fear is that a group could get ahold of radioactive material, such as cesium or cobalt, for a dirty bomb that could be carried in a suitcase. Those materials are widely used in industrial, academic and hospital settings, with no consistent security standards across the globe. Last year, an Associated Press investigation revealed multiple attempts by black market smugglers to sell radioactive material to Middle East extremists. We know for a fact that individuals from the middle east have been using the Southern corridor to enter the United States illegally. We also know that some of those individuals have ties to terrorist organizations.  With DHS actively looking for ways to detect nuclear radiation it appears that an attack on the United States is now a serious possibility. Of course, no threat has been announced to the public and chances are that should one exist the American people won’t know until it’s too late.  Preparing for such an event is critical, because in the fallout (literally) there will be no assistance from emergency responders for days or weeks. That means law and order will break down, medical services will be non-existent and basic necessities will become unavailable. Having food, water, self defense armaments will be essential to survival. But in a CBRN (Chemical, Biological, Radiologicla, Nuclear) event, an evacuation plan will be just as critical. And if you are evacuating in a CBRN situation, advanced CBRN-rated breathing equipment will be a life saver. As Tess Pennington notes in her book The Prepper’s Blueprint, you need to be ready to move the moment a serious threat presents itself or you risk being stuck in the midst of thousands of others who are trying to escape the danger: If you are told to evacuate keep the following points in mind… If you are driving, keep the car windows and vents closed, and use recirculating air.   Due to the fear of panic and gridlock that will ensure from mass evacuations, most governments will delay mandatory evacuations until the last minute. This will only cause mass confusion and chaos at gas stations, grocery stores and on the streets. The best way to prevent this is to stay ahead of the crowd and prepare ahead of time.  There is a real possibility that one morning we’ll wake up to a massive terror attack on the United States. Will you be ready for it?

How Brand Purpose Can Help Guide Advertising Strategy at Rio Olympics

Marcello Magalhaes, Chief Strategy Officer, Leo Burnett US Navigate the proliferation of screens and narratives to curate content and achieve relevancy, says Leo Burnett US Chief Strategy Officer Marcello Magalhaes Given the advancement in mobile technology since the London Summer Games in 2012, Rio 2016 presents radical changes in the way the Olympic Games are broadcast to the world. The mobile average download speed has tripled from 2012 to 2016, while smartphone penetration has jumped from 20 percent (1.24B connections) to 50 percent (3.94B connections). Meanwhile, users have quickly adopted and adapted to the wide array of social and broadcasting apps such as Snapchat, Instagram and Facebook Live, as well as many other data-intensive applications that offer video streaming that were simply impossible four years ago. And it’s not only the people: NBC and Globo (Brazil’s leading broadcaster) have partnered with Snapchat to generate Olympics content. What we are witnessing is a massive takeover of the official Olympics broadcast. Where is this content coming from? Because the smartphone is much more pervasive and accessible, it’s almost impossible to conceive of just one narrative. While people will see through TV the official story of the Games, it’s no longer possible to only have one standalone narrative. And that’s just the viewers. If we also consider the people who will be there shooting with their mobile phones, we know it’s impossible to prevent people from registering their experience during the Olympic Games. The challenge brands will have, apart from IOC restrictions on brand messaging, is finding a meaningful stream of stories to tell. Instead of trying to prevent, ignore or avoid being pulverized by this barrage of content, brands — official sponsors or otherwise — should be able to embrace the opportunity. Guided by clear purpose and principles, they can align behind these screens through a consistent curatorship of channels and platforms to share with people. (And this would be true for any large-scale media event, from the Super Bowl to the FIFA World Cup.) Both official and non-official sponsor brands will have to break through the clutter of content sharing and distribution by shifting their messages from awareness to relevance. What’s awareness? If we consider the past events, not only the Olympics, the dynamic for advertisers was to get ahold of the most — time on air, eyeballs watching — that they could to optimize their investment. Because of the number of channels we have access to nowadays, not only the official ones, but also the individual ones — anyone in Rio has a potential channel, literally, in his or her hand — signifying that awareness alone is becoming an outdated performance measurement. Relevance, then, becomes more important as it relates to how interested people are in a brand’s story instead of just its appearance or awareness. A brand that manages to find a meaningful way to curate all this content being distributed via these myriad channels will have the most impactful stories to tell. People will thus feel encouraged to participate along with the brand, and that is a result of relevance. That’s the interesting creative and strategic work a brand can do; this is why brand purpose is so important. Purpose is the guardrail of what is consistent, what is interesting and what fuels the brand, versus what is generic. How can brands leverage this myriad of narratives to either protect their investment as official sponsors or take advantage of it while not being an official sponsor? How can brands have a relevant participation in the Games by tapping into these channels? With a clear brand purpose, it is much easier to link back to a specific and own able idea. For instance, it’s easy to see brands leaning on a story around performance during the Olympics. If we’re talking about “performance,” that’s probably not own able for every brand around the Games because you’ll have watches, technology, sports garments — so many brands that will tap into and reinforce that core benefit sports deliver. Not all brands can do that! Now thanks to all this content that has been generated — not only the official broadcast but also content that’s been broadcast by people — you can harness something unique to your brand that is own able. If you can surface content that aligns with your brand purpose, you can curate that content and say, “This is my view of the Games.” It’s not a generic one, not one that somebody can imitate. It’s authentic and truthful to what your brand believes. Marcello Magalhaes is chief strategy officer of Leo Burnett US. Follow him on Twitter @marcemagal.
