There is no colder seat in college football than the one in College Station, Texas. It’s a maroon and white Lazy-Boy recliner made of crisp $100 bills, and it comes with air-conditioned vents set 72 degrees, a ‘fridge on the side with a built-in remote control for the 96-inch screen TV. The best part, the man who sits in this recliner didn’t even have to pay for it even though he makes about $9 million a year. Jimbo Fisher is not The Man. He is The King. And God doesn’t have to save This King. Texas A&M does every day. Jimbo Fisher is still the right hire for Texas A&M. Because, with Texas A&M, it’s not the coach. It’s the job. Texas A&M lured away a coach who was five years removed from winning a national title. The Aggies were not going to get much better than that, and they still aren’t. The Aggies have no choice but to bow to their King, and just pray that God allows a tradition that is unlike any other in college football changes soon. No … [Read more...] about Opinion: The problem with Texas A&M football isn’t Jimbo Fisher. It’s the job.
Click here to read the full article. Corporate culture comes from the top in America. At least that’s the platonic ideal. How a company sets its global image, how it treats its employees, what it values — that all starts in the so-called C-suite. In some companies, that ethos can be found in a single man — they are almost always men — who emerge as the face of the firm. (Think Steve Jobs at Apple or Jeff Bezos at Amazon.) That l’etat, c’est moi approach is evident at Tesla . Elon Musk is Tesla, and Tesla is Elon Musk. This has been true since the South African became CEO and wrested control of the electric-car company from its founders in 2008. The board is not forcing Musk’s hand. (It was Musk who decided Tesla would move its corporate HQ from California to Texas.) At times he can be so hands-on that he has overnighted at the Fremont, California, factory where the cars are manufactured. Musk’s tweets can make Tesla stock rise and fall. The personal and the corporate are … [Read more...] about ‘How Many Women Were Abused to Make That Tesla?’
It was a big year for Texas’ wealthy. The 43 who claimed spots on this year’s Forbes ranking of the 400 wealthiest Americans now represent more than a tenth of the nation’s richest people, as the group grew by six from last year. One of Texas’ most high-profile transplants not only is the state’s richest man but also is the nation’s and the world’s. Elon Musk, who made Texas his official home when he began investing heavily in the state , sits atop the ranking with a net worth estimated to be $251 billion. In Dallas, Cowboys owner Jerry Jones continues to widen his lead over every other billionaire in town, with a fortune that Forbes now places at $16 billion. He got a boost from the rising valuation of the Cowboys, already deemed the most valuable NFL franchise , and benefited from his majority stockholder stake in Frisco-based oil and gas company Comstock Resources. The team’s worth rose 10% from last year’s valuation. Musk’s fortune jumped more than $100 billion … [Read more...] about It was a big year for Texas’ wealthy, with 43 scoring spots on Forbes’ richest list
