THE VALLEY CURRENT®️ COMPUTERLAW GROUP LLP

The biggest barrier to change has always been culture. When personal computers were new to the workplace, many employees stuffed their computer into a corner and treated it as furniture or viewed it as something for just the secretary to work with. Now it’s difficult to think of a job that doesn’t require any use of a computer. We’ve come a long way since then, but that just goes to show you that transformation rarely goes well in the workplace. In fact, most businesses are probably 50-75 years behind the times due to resisting change! The addition of AI is currently the biggest...

THE VALLEY CURRENT®️ COMPUTERLAW GROUP LLP

Could the Titanic have avoided the fatal iceberg and completed its maiden voyage? It possibly could have been avoided if Bruce Ismay (White Star Line chairman & managing director) hadn’t ignored Captain Smith’s warnings until it was too late. Situations like this are typically why capital and management are separated in an enterprise. So, what does this have to do with Donald Trump? When Ismay stood trial in both London and New York, he didn’t have much to say outside of a why me attitude while he shifted the blame. Today host Jack Russo and Francis Wilson discuss the similar...

THE VALLEY CURRENT®️ COMPUTERLAW GROUP LLP

Taxes may be the price we pay to live in a civilized society, but no one, no matter how wealthy they are, likes paying taxes. Many of us are guilty of procrastinating until the last possible moment to file taxes, possibly to the point where we completely forget and then pay a penalty on top of our taxes when we do remember. Even if we do remember, some of us simply refuse to pay and attempt to cover it up, hoping we don’t get caught. One of these happened to John Groggins, the former general counsel for Moody’s, who just admitted to failing to file taxes on $54M over the past 4 years....

THE VALLEY CURRENT®️ COMPUTERLAW GROUP LLP

The increasing availability of artificial intelligent companions is a significant turning point in the development of services. AI’s ability to quickly draft documents or instantly find and summarize research reports will be a major help for companies since they can increase productivity while cutting down on employees. The concern over job displacement remains a significant concern overall as the need for knowledge workers who perform simpler, more repetitive tasks declines. Can we expect these employees to change gears and jumpstart a new career in small business entrepreneurship? Host...

THE VALLEY CURRENT®️ COMPUTERLAW GROUP LLP

See a problem, solve a problem. This is a phrase many of us grew up hearing and can largely be considered the core of the entrepreneurial mindset. What sets an entrepreneur apart from your standard repair person is the intellectual curiosity to restructure and rebuild an entire process instead of patchwork. Bangladesh, conveniently settled between India and China, has a fast-growing economy thanks to a strong developer & freelance community, but is missing key pieces of a solid financial infrastructure. Today host Jack Russo meets Rubel Ahsan who is breaking Bangladesh away from foreign...

Some of the biggest wealth transfers the world has ever seen are happening right now and a select few are going to profit the most from it.

What do we do when the scale of wealth creation today exceeds that of the robber barons who controlled the railroads? We study them, of course! Today host Jack Russo and Pat Duke discuss what we can learn by studying the movements of future trillionaires and how...

For a brief moment in time, astronomers were able to safely study the sun’s corona simply because it was in the perfect spot at the perfect time. As awesome as it was for us to watch, no major news organization mentioned how unbelievable it was that this happened in an ever-expanding universe. There are many things reported to us that we tend to take at face value. For instance, the media will report how many Palestinians died in Gaza, but not question the accuracy of those numbers which were provided to us from a terrorist organization. Many fundamentalistic religions promote blind faith...

THE VALLEY CURRENT®️ COMPUTERLAW GROUP LLP

When we talk about the bullying problem in America, we tend to focus on the children who are tormented in school or online because bullies eventually grow up and act like adults, right? Unfortunately, some bullies never learn to act like decent human beings, and they carry their crude behaviors into adulthood where it can be modeled as successful tactics to children. Between younger generations taking offense to the smallest microaggression and older generations tendencies to make brazen, hurtful comments, it’s clear that bullying is taking its toll on civilization, and it is showing up in...

THE VALLEY CURRENT®️ COMPUTERLAW GROUP LLP

As much as we wish, we cannot interfere with or slow down the process of aging. What we can do is learn how to prevent and cure diseases that increase our longevity. There’s a whole industry of startup companies dedicated to pursuing a lifespan and a health span that goes to age 100 and possibly a whole lot longer. Could we really be just one major health-related scientific breakthrough from hitting age 100 with ease? Should we adjust our diet and exercise plan to make this feasible? Maybe making it to old age is just plain luck. Whatever it is, host Jack Russo and Dr. Leonard Hayflick...

THE VALLEY CURRENT®️ COMPUTERLAW GROUP LLP

How many times have you looked at your email, found an invitation to join a class action lawsuit, and wondered if it’s even worth it? While there’s usually little to no downside to joining these lawsuits, it may take years for the case to settle with a laughably minimal payout due to the large number of claimants. However, sometimes the real payoff comes in the form of programmatic relief the way it did for CPA Steve Rabin when he took on PricewaterhouseCoopers for age discrimination. Today host Jack Russo finds out how Steve Rabin opened the door for other older financial workers facing...

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 maximize the awarded damages to the wronged client. Win over juries with a solid story using the facts that is designed to reach them on a human level and walk away victoriously for your client by visitng David at https://www.asimplemessage.com/.
