Have seen an utterly clueless Mck team attempting to do their thing in one of my previous assignments. We worked in high tech and almost all problems demanded deep and rigorous understanding of the discipline. The amount of time and energy wasted on the pure fluff ideas of this mgt consulting team was insane and highly distractive. Real work needed to be done and immediately by those who could. The daily and sometimes twice daily powerpoint meetings were unbelievable. ...

This will change the flavour somewhat Cut onions in half slice them into very very thin half-rounds remove some of the fat from the stew and use that to fry these onions, it will take more fat than one expects.

I liked NPR as sometimes it had decent stuff. With the decline of my yearning for learning, my visits there have decreased. Also I can find stuff on the internet to listen too. -
