I learned the hard way...there are just some things that one doesnt say to one's 13 year old daughter in public. https://t.co/4o6zX6lWvZ

Morning! Insane show today @chaifm 101.9Fm. Meet Sergeant-Major X of IDF's elite YAMAS unit, @Dina_K_Diamond navigates how schools best deal with bad PR, @clarionproject updates on global terror & the voicenote victim tell us what happened when she met the sender #nosafeplace

We underestimate the closeness of the relationship of these two world leaders at our own peril. Contrary to anything they might say publicly. #Bromance #BrothersFromAnotherMother

@HowardFeldman @realDonaldTrump @EmmanuelMacron Hilarious, helping the old man down the stairs🤣😂

Remarkable body language on display at meeting between @realDonaldTrump and @EmmanuelMacron. Trump's upside down steeple indicating that he is listening intently, & Macron curiously comfortable inside Trump's personal space zone. #ParisPeaceForum

It is often easier for companies to “Do what we have always done.” Many will make critical decisions based on what their business is not what their customers want. This is the fear that prevents innovation. And this is what has caused the demise of some the world’s most powerful companies.
