Will the NCAA Division l transfer portal be cataclysmic? Or is that we are in a new era/new thinking/new who knows? Let’s define what is known about the idea of a transfer portal. When a student-athlete signs his/her letter of intent to attend a Division I school and then wants to change schools, he/she must register that intent on the “transfer portal” list. This is a site where not only can student-athletes inform other Division I schools of their intent but it also notifies school compliance officers and other athletic personnel of that student-athletes intention. At this writing, it does not apply to Division II schools, but it looks like that is on the horizon. Further, the NCAA, particularly Division I have been under “fire” about its position for denial of NIL (Name, Image and/or Likeness) of student-athletes receiving financial remunerations. The Supreme Court has now stepped in to allow student-athletes (yes,…

When Bitcoin debuted in 2009, I published an article making a few predictions using my Hard Trend Methodology that have proven to be highly accurate. While I stated that cryptocurrency and blockchain technology represented a Hard Trend that would grow exponentially, it is time to discuss the next Hard Trend: digital currency. You likely have heard of cryptocurrency, but how is digital currency different? Believe it or not, there is a vital difference. Understanding what digital currency is, how it can be used and potentially misused, and how it is drastically different from the likes of Bitcoin and cryptocurrency is paramount in shaping the future of global and local financial systems. Banking Apps, Cryptocurrency, and Digital Currency Many individuals view the use of their digital banking app or credit card as a “cashless, digital way to pay.” That is not digital currency. The digital nature of your savings or checking account is tied to…

We are now sure that includes Sha’Carri Richardson, the 5’1” Texan sprinter who won the 100-meter United States Olympic Trials in Oregon earlier this month. Later she was disqualified. Did she “jump-the-gun”? Did she interfere with her competitor in the next lane? Nope! This 21-year-old LSU freshman ran that 100-meters in 10.86 and is one of the 10-fastest women in the world. She says she is “only human.” Ha! it must be added that with that speed, she is more super-human. She said her role model was Florence Griffith Joyner, a former UCLA Bruin who died from suffocation in her sleep due to an epileptic seizure some 3 years ago. Flo-Jo is the current 100-meter world record holder at 10.49- just about one-half second faster than Richardson’s mark in Oregon. Sha’Carri’s disqualification was the result of her use of marijuana prior to that race at the Olympic trials. The US Olympic Track…

Whether we ask Amazon’s Alexa to play our favorite song or shout “Hey, Google” before asking the device a question to help our child with their homework, artificial intelligence (A.I.) has been in the spotlight more frequently in the past few years in consumer applications. In past articles, I have identified the implementation of artificial intelligence (A.I.) as being “helpfully cool”; however, its application in industries of all sorts is exponentially revolutionizing how we both think and work. Coupled with the disruptive nature of the coronavirus pandemic of 2020, A.I. is now far beyond the novelty it was originally considered to be. Because of the versatility of A.I. applications and how quickly they are becoming applicable in everyday life without us even realizing it, the business disruption that comes with them is speeding up as well. Organizations that implement my Anticipatory Organization Model will have tremendous advantage in leveraging the…

Can the words civility and sports fans be used in the same sentence? If the simple definition of civility is courtesy and the word fan is abbreviated from fanatic (excessively enthusiastic), can fans be courteous? We recently observed that fans have thrown objects at NBA players as well as shouting vulgar and obscene names at them during and after games. We’ve also noticed that some fans, wanting to cheer on their T*E*A*M by standing up thereby blocking the view of other fans, who were cheering the same team, but seated. All of these fans were in seats near the playing floor. The seated fans asked those standing to please sit down since those seated couldn’t see. Those standing refused to sit. If you were one of those standing, what would you do? It was observed that those standing were younger (20s-30s), while those seated were older (50s-60s). Older fans intend to sit more than stand,…

Whether we swipe our finger or ask Siri using our voice, smartphones have become a window to the world of information and knowledge sitting in our front pockets and purses. Nearly all of us have access to this miraculous device that allows for constant connection to and communication with the rest of the world, and in the rare case that we are not with these smartphones or other digital devices, we are probably asking the person next to us to use theirs to check something for us. A Paradigm ShiftAs soon as businesspeople and consumers alike moved away from using devices like the BlackBerry and instead picked up an iPhone, a behavioral paradigm shift occurred. We can now send a text or make a call with flawless precision, send high-resolution photos and videos, use an Internet browser to search for whatever we may need, and listen to an unlimited collection…
