The Secret to Effective Time Management? Smaller Time Blocks

Most entrepreneurs wish they were better at managing their time. There are only eight hours in a standard work day, but it feels like you have 20 hours worth of tasks to do every day.

There are many legitimate solutions to this dilemma. One of the most valuable strategies is learning to delegate effectively to reduce your total workload. You can also automate certain tasks so you no longer have to actively manage them.

But once you’ve used all these tactics, you’ll be left with only one real solution to optimize your productivity: time management. Only by better managing your time will you be able to accomplish the greatest number of tasks in a day.

Regulatory Technology Strives for New Era of Effective Governance

Regtech, short for regulatory technology, is a category of software solutions that helps its business customers to manage and de-risk compliance with the regulatory obligations of their respective industries. By its nature, regtech seeks first to understand and then to simplify and manage the highly complex laws written to regulate industry. While the right seeks to free business to grow and the left seeks to protect citizens and consumers, a good regtech solution supports both sides with technology that ensures compliance with the law while minimizing the resources necessary to do so.

Consider regulatory control over the financial services industry as a prime example from modern history. Speculative investment soared during the roaring twenties while production waned and unemployment rose. Over the decade, the stock market became increasingly over-valued and consumers took on more and more debt as banks turned a blind eye to obvious risk and over-leveraged cash

A research team from Caltech and the UCLA Samueli School of Engineering has demonstrated a promising way to efficiently convert carbon dioxide into ethylene—an important chemical used to produce plastics, solvents, cosmetics and other important products globally.


The scientists developed nanoscale copper wires with specially shaped surfaces to catalyze a chemical reaction that reduces greenhouse gas emissions while generating ethylene—a valuable chemical simultaneously. Computational studies of the reaction show the shaped catalyst favors the production of ethylene over hydrogen or methane. A study detailing the advance was published in Nature Catalysis.

“We are at the brink of fossil fuel exhaustion, coupled with global climate change challenges,” said Yu

Poll: Voters say Democratic convention more effective than GOP event

Voters in a new Hill-HarrisX poll say they thought the recent Democratic National Convention was more effective than its GOP counterpart, though a plurality of voters said they did not watch either party convention.

A third of registered voters in the survey, 33 percent, said they thought Democrats’ presidential nominating event was more effective compared to 27 percent who said the same of the Republican National Convention.

Four in 10 voters said they did not watch either event, which took place on consecutive weeks in mid-to-late August.

The survey, conducted Aug. 29-31 following the conclusion of the GOP event, found slightly more Democratic voters than Republican voters who said their party’s convention was more effective.

Party organizers had to grapple with conducting mostly virtual conventions this year due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, with both parties relying more heavily on technology than in traditional election years. 

Sixty-six percent of Democrats
