15 Of The Worst Neon Sign Fails Ever

15 Of The Worst Neon Sign Fails Ever Companies pay a lot of attention to their billboards and signs. However, when installing a neon sign you have to be extra careful. Lights WILL go out, and once it does you’ll end up with “hell” instead of “Shell”, and “Hoe Carnival” instead of “Shoe Carnival”. Shameless has collected the best of the worst neon sign fails. So if you are a business owner who has or is planning to have a neon sign – take a really close look and try to see what can go wrong. Not all publicity is good publicity….

English T-Shirts In Asia (20+ Pics)

English T-Shirts In Asia (20+ Pics)   One of the great things about the world we live in is the rich and diverse variety of languages that you can find across the globe. The only problem is that, as you can see from these pictures, sometimes these languages don’t quite translate… In homage to hilarious translation fails, shameless has compiled this list of t-shirts from East Asia that don’t quite say what they should (“Texas state it’s a triangle OMG so hipster triangle”, for example). Some of them don’t say anything at all (well, not unless “temmby woroing terrislylastly” means anything…

Cryptography, keeping on the big lie

So Cryptography would be a National Security Issue? I’m tired to be polite and politically correct when talking about encryption. Let us be clear and honest, all those crypto_war is a pile of crap. Every time I heard someone claiming that we should not enforce strong cryptography I wonder: to they have the slightest idea what they are talking about? Probably not, considering also most of the objections against cryptography I heard. Listening to those “enlighten” minds it seems that without cryptography the world be a sort of heaven where intelligence could have the possibility to solve any criminal case. And…

Historical memory, what is this about?

I wrote on memories yesterday. Personal memories and historical memories are the blocks of our life. We live for our memories since, at the end, are memories that create our thinking, our background, our experience, our knowledge. Personal memories are something ease to understand, is what we directly lived through direct experience. but those memories are just a portion of the memories we have and have to deal with. Another great portion of our memories is build into the society we are living, shaped trough communication (media, arts, word of mouth, storytelling), school and other tools. Some of those memories are…

Our memories are all we have

I am in China for work, with a few connection to the real world outside, so Italian news usually comes to me late, when I am able to connect to internet from hotel; great firewall allowing. Being isolated from the Italian reality put things into a different perspective, allow you to keep less news with more time to digest and think about. It happened a few days ago I learned of the death of Umberto Eco, one of the greatest Italian tinker of our age. He was a great writer, a great thinker, a truly free spirit. The first thing I did…

The rightful way to make an employee unhappy

Management is a difficult art, management in a big corporations is more difficult. Management in a corporation where multicultural requirement is a need is even more hard. We all know it and, at a certain extent, we have to deal with it. We can’t expect everything works good and right, and we have to show flexibility and we have to open to change and embrace the new but… Let’s be real, no matter how much effort you put sometimes things are just not right. There are plenty of ways a company can make your life miserable, and usually they try to…

The fine art to make impossible what is possible. (Or why many projects fail)

The fine art to make impossible what is possible. (Or why many projects fail)   I know, there is always a great distance between reality and management, Sometimes it happen to me to bump into real good manager, but it is mostly an exception to the general rule, than the norm. I would say that my personal opinion is that because nowadays management mostly is all but dealing with reality, with the prevalent culture that has moved from production to finance, we moved from the real economy to a virtual representation that does not take into account many factors because focused…

Bunch of anniversaries, lol, thanks for reminding LinkedIn

Ok I have crossed another year last year I have  crossed my 50 (in august) and now I am trying to make a living i the 2016.

So basically I receive anniversary wishes for my blogs, my activity as a trainer, journalistwriter and for my current Job. let’s talk a bit about my…

Apple, l’evasione fiscale e gli strani conti della Agenzia delle Entrate

Probabilmente non sono un genio della finanza, e mi mancano gli strumenti cognitivi base per capire certe finezze, ma mi sorge un dubbio: Se una azienda come apple evade, secondo lo stato italiano, 880 miloni di euro in tasse, come mai puo sanare la cosa pagandone solo un terzo, 318 milioni? Perchè invece a me le cartelle arrivano con gli importi almeno quintuplicati tra more, multe, penali e cose del genere? Intendiamoci non sono un sostenitore della evasione, ma sostengo che chi non riesce a pagare, avendolo vissuto sulla mia pelle, e vivendolo tutt’ora, dovrebbe essere aiutato a coprire il suo debito…
