first_img ShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr continue reading » You may know Netflix as a top media entertainment provider, with shows like Orange is the New Black and Stranger Things, but behind this media giant is a high-performance company culture that seeks to attract and retain “stunning colleagues.”Netflix believes in people over process and promotes freedom, independence and collaboration. Like many organizations, they have company values that sound great, but the difference is they actually live by them.Almost a decade ago, some of the secrets of the company’s exceptional culture were revealed in a document that was shared frequently on the internet. The slide deck, entitled “Netflix Culture: Freedom and Responsibility,” not only detailed the company values, but also their philosophy on pay, benefits and what actually makes a great company culture. (Hint: It’s not free espresso, sushi lunches and great offices.)And it’s anything but traditional.last_img read more

Tennis News Rafael Nadal steamrolls to opening Monte Carlo win

first_imgHe was equally in control during the second set, where he saved three break points in the fourth game and two more in the sixth.”It was a great start, it’s good to be back here,” the 17-time Grand Slam winner said, keeping talk of his knee to a minimum.”I can’t pretend to not have pain at all, but professionals normally play with pain,” Nadal said.”It’s part of the sport at the highest level and it’s no limitations at all. I was able to move well and be confident with the things that I did.” Bautista Agut has now lost to his Spanish countryman in all three of their meetings, while Nadal improved his incredible record here to 69-4 as he takes aim at a fourth consecutive title at the event.”This is just the first match and it’s been a very positive start,” Nadal said. “The results say that.”Roland Garros finalist Dominic Thiem, who lost to Nadal in Paris last June, beat Slovakia’s Martin Klizan 6-1, 6-4.Thiem, who won the Indian Wells title over Federer, made a successful switch to his favourite surface as he prepares for the pre-French Open sequence of events.Fourth seed Thiem won with a break in the final game after Klizan held a 40-0 lead.(With Inputs: PTI) Monte Carlo: Rafael Nadal charged out of the blocks Wednesday to hammer Roberto Bautista Agut 6-1, 6-1 in his opening match at the Monte Carlo Masters.

Dodgers’ Brandon Morrow willing to go deep on politics

first_imgGLENDALE, Ariz. — On the same day Adrian Gonzalez and Kiké Hernandez tweeted about the beginning of the World Baseball Classic, Joc Pederson wrote on his Twitter account that he could not sleep in on an off-day in the Dodgers’ schedule.Brandon Morrow couldn’t sleep in on March 9, either. The new Dodgers pitcher was alarmed by President Donald Trump’s choice to be the new administrator of the Environmental Protection Agency. Morrow wrote that Scott Pruitt “is arguably the greatest threat to our nation/Earth. Dangerous that someone who denies climate change is now EPA head.”In a sport where players rarely offer political commentary on social media — let alone in the locker room — Morrow’s voice is only growing louder.“I’ve got no problem doing it,” Morrow said. The average Major League Baseball player is harder to pigeonhole politically. Some are more liberal, some more are conservative and the majority seem apathetic in Morrow’s opinion.That might be why political disagreements among Dodger players have never risen to the attention of the manager, at least during Dave Roberts’ tenure. Pitcher Brandon McCarthy, who’s used Twitter to express his political opinions for years, said he’s never argued with a teammate about politics.“It’s not discussed,” McCarthy said. “It’s still a professional workplace.”Morrow, who grew up in Northern California and attended UC Berkeley, said he tries to keep his political dialogue respectful. If a Twitter user tries to bait him into a political argument, he isn’t afraid to hit the block button. Usually he doesn’t engage other users at all.When Morrow talks politics in the clubhouse, it’s been limited to “light-hearted debate.”“Nobody in any clubhouse — really anybody that I’ve had 1-on-1 interactions with — has ever really gotten under my skin,” he said. “Most people you talk with don’t agree with everything from the side they support anyway. There’s always room to meet in the middle.”Injury updatesCorey Seager (back/oblique) hasn’t been cleared to participate in baseball activities, and Roberts said the shortstop won’t play this week.“He’s still keeping his legs in shape,” Roberts said of Seager. “You’d obviously like him and Logan (Forsythe, the Dodgers’ second baseman) to have more time together in the middle of the infield, but the timing of the at-bats, once he’s healthy, we can still get those at-bats.”Andre Ethier (hip) is expected back by the end of the week, Roberts said. The veteran outfielder continues to hit, throw and take part in light drills at first base.Scott Kazmir’s next start has not been scheduled. The left-hander is honing his mechanics after throwing a simulated game against minor leaguers Saturday.AlsoThe Dodgers trimmed their major league camp roster by five. Catcher Kyle Farmer and pitcher Jacob Rhame were optioned to minor league camp. Outfielder Henry Ramos and pitchers Josh Sborz and Ralston Cash were reassigned to minor league camp. Not including pitcher Yimi Garcia, who is on the 60-day disabled list, there are 57 players in camp. Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Errorcenter_img The 10-year veteran signed a minor league contract with the Dodgers in January. He’s in camp as a non-roster invitee.Morrow, 32, said he hasn’t always been so politically aware. Not unusually, he found himself paying more attention to current events as he got older. The birth of his first child, William, catalyzed his political fervor last year. So did the 2016 election cycle.“You start thinking about how you want the world to be shaped when they grow up, that sort of thing,” Morrow said.Even before he became a father, Morrow said, he gained a sympathetic Twitter audience — 79,000 and counting as of Monday — while pitching for the Toronto Blue Jays from 2010-14.“They’re a pretty liberal group,” he said of his Canadian followers from his days in Toronto.last_img read more
