Take Some Lessons From Miles Davis

Tom Garrubba, VP/CISO of the SFG/Shared Assessments Program, is a recognized advisor, author, and instructor on IT and operational risks.

Often, these people tend to not just shape others around them but also tend to modify or even alter the direction of their industry and society.

Tesla Motors, Inc. (NASDAQ:TSLA) – Tesla Model X’s Range Increases To 371 Miles Per Charge

Tesla Inc (NASDAQ: TSLA) is improving its vehicles with software and physical updates. Rather than waiting for a new model year, Tesla often incorporates updates to the assembly line as the company sees fit.

Young model gears up to bike 300+ miles to bring awareness to mental health

NEW YORK CITY (WABC) — A young man is biking hundreds of miles to bring awareness to mental health.

Kevin Hubsmith is the picture-perfect image of health and happiness.

From the outside, this male model has it all. The glitz and the glamour.

But looks can be deceiving.

“It started in high school. I actually had an incident with self-harm, which was my first real big obstacle with mental health,” Hubsmith said. “Got some treatment and then went off to college and had a little bit of a manic episode in college actually.”
