by Ahmed Younies - May, 2015
President Obama has just a bit over 18 months left in office. Consequently so does the OFCCP—in its current incarnation, that is. Once Mr. Obama leaves office, there will likely be a new Director, and the OFCCP will subsequently reflect shifting priorities.

Using Spreadsheets to Manage Projects? At What Cost?
by Alexandra Levit - May, 2015

I may like thinking about future devices, but when it comes to learning how to use them and incorporating them into my daily routine, I’m a technical slacker.
