If our calculations are correct...

In many ways, living and working amidst a pandemic is like solving a giant math problem. Whether you had a borderline unhealthy relationship with your graphing calculator in high school, or you’re still having nightmares about Algebra 101, rest assured. This is good news.

First of all, you don’t have to be the one to solve for X. There are teams of numerically inclined folks who are doing incredible things like creating algorithms to predict the next COVID-19 hotspots and using the theory of sphere packing to design safer workspaces. It’s actually pretty exciting (even for those of us who were never exactly mathletes).

And here’s the thing about math problems: they have answers! Math offers clear-cut data that can help you make the best possible decisions when the stakes are high but the landscape is confusing.

So, if you happen to know a mathematician, statistician, or high school geometry teacher, give them a high five. Their value is incalculable.

Race plays out differently in every interracial friendship. And contrary to what pop culture would have us believe, most interracial friendships aren’t actually rooted in deep conversations around racial difference. Not in the beginning, at least.
Individual cybersecurity is now a critical part of enterprise security, because when individual workers aren’t secure, the enterprise isn’t either. These practical steps will help you secure your data, accounts, and devices.
Bosses claim that their firms’ superior returns justify their own hefty paychecks. Really?
Our brains filter a constant tsunami of stimuli and piece the important parts together to recreate what we know as reality. But what you think is reality is a lie.
