Despite multiple impeachments, lawsuits, and inflammatory statements, Donald Trump remains the Republican favorite to run against Joe Biden. Much of Trump’s appeal seems to be rooted in his anti-establishment views and has capitalized on congress’ history of not tackling issues. The Republican party is fractionalizing at an increasing rate under the pressure to remain loyal to the party which is only compromising the United...

 Is there any factor more important to evolution than forward-looking collaboration? Whether it’s family, society, business, or politics, leaders are needed to bring people together and inspire them to work towards a single goal.

On the other hand, keeping information secret among a small group of officials prevents the company from co-creating and...

It doesn’t matter if you work for a boutique company or the biggest, most well-known global organization, when the numbers don’t add up, the unfortunate answer could be embezzlement. Over in New Jersey, John Dunlea and his wife Nicole Alexander were charged with embezzling more than $1.5M from the McElroy, Deutsch, Mulvaney & Carpenter law firm over the last 5 years where they both held financial roles. The couples’ scheme was found to be guilty of failure to pay taxes and theft by deception in which they gave themselves bonuses and charged personal flights and more to the law firm....

The GOP are narrowing in on this year’s presidential candidate, and former President Donald Trump has been the loudest frontrunner from the beginning. As popular as Trump has been, his official nomination has yet to be finalized – and no one is sure if Trump can legitimately run. After initially denying to hear a case regarding insurrection as grounds to invalidate Trump from running, SCOTUS is now being pushed to rule on the matter after Trump urged them to repeal Colorado’s decision for violating the 14th Amendment. Do states have the power to disqualify candidates from national...

Anyone who has looked into how movies are made knows that the plot doesn’t really begin to take shape until the storyboarding phase. In law, presenting a case to a jury works similarly, but throwing facts and figures around in the courthouse does not hit the same as a movie. No matter how clear the liability is, the jury understands best when presented with several mini stories that show how someone’s life has been impacted by the damages. To do this, lawyers like our host Jack Russo turn to guys like David Mann for help creating stories that will emotionally resonate with the jury and...

There has been a big cultural shift since the 60’s, 70’s and even 80’s when scientists thought of publishing instead of patenting. Somewhere along the way, scientists have changed their goals from publishing knowledge and gaining recognition to assembling a portfolio of patents with the possibility of publishing purposely edited research that could lead to another patent. Being an esteemed scientist in his 90’s, Dr. Leonard Hayflick has witnessed this transformation firsthand along with the advantages and disadvantages it has brought with it. Listen in as Dr. Hayflick discusses the role of publication vs. patents in stimulating the production and distribution of scientific knowledge globally.
