Humans Now Have a Lower Attention Span Than a Goldfish… Why Nobody is Listening to You…

Do you ever feel like nobody is listening to you? Well to be completely honest, nowadays, they probably aren’t.. Our world has evolved into mindless zombies with their eyes glued to their phones and our attention span as a result of all the media consumed is now less than that of a goldfish… The problem? Managers in the workplace are not excluded from this study…

According to ResourcefulManager.com, a website that offers advice and resources for managers, the average Fortune 500 manager scores a 2 out of 5 on listening abilities.

There’s a cost: errors, miscommunication, wasted time, and employee turnover.

A New Leap For Solar Power, Overcoming The Oil Industry

Solar power has steadily been on the rise since 2010 for employing the energy field but it finally overcame the oil industry for the amount of employers in 2015.  The only dark side that looms with the bright future of solar power is the pay as it is still drastically lower than the oil industry making it a questionable rise for the economy. Below are a few graphs that exhibit the rise of the solar industry:

The oil industry has had a rough 18 months, as the price of oil slid from more than $100 a barrel in the spring of 2014 to just over $30 a barrel in recent weeks. The low price has caused layoffs in what had been a robust and growing shale oil extraction business. 

The solar industry, meanwhile, continues to grow as the technology becomes cheaper, making it a better deal for the average household. The Solar Foundation’s report also shows how the price of installed solar panels continue to drop:

solar installation jobs are completely taking off:

The one place where solar hasn’t caught up to oil and gas, it seems, is in the pay. According to the report, solar installers — which account for a plurality of jobs in the industry — get $21 per hour on average. The pay in sales and design is higher, at $28.85 and $26.92, respectively.
