Fwd: First Tip: Be a More Successful CEO

Here is your first tip to be a successful CEO.

-------------------------------------------

Don't Overschedule Yourself

"We rarely have meetings. I hate them. They're a huge waste of time, and they're costly," says Jason Fried, co-founder of 37 Signals, a collaboration-software company in Chicago. "They chop your day into small bits, so you have only 20 minutes of free time here or 45 minutes there. Creative people need unstructured time to get in the zone. You can't do that in 20 minutes."

Fwd: [CSSD] Last chance to register for Oct. 24 Randall Lewis Seminar - "How Are Foreclosures Affecting Voter Turnout?"c

] Last chance to register for Oct. 24 Randall Lewis Seminar - "How Are Foreclosures Affecting Voter Turnout?"

Note new location for seminars: CE-CERT Building, 1084 Columbia Ave., Riverside

The seminar and parking are free, but seats are limited and Registration is required.

To register, go to http://or.ucr.edu/event/index.aspx

Has the record number of California foreclosures resulted in lower voter turnout? A study by UCR sociologist Vanesa Estrada Correa and political scientist Martin Johnson found not only those displaced by foreclosure were less likely to vote in the 2008 election, but their neighbors who remained in their homes also were less likely to cast ballots.

"Other things being equal, individuals are more likely to vote when they live in places where neighbors vigorously participate in politics, while individuals are less likely to vote when their neighbors are less civically active," the scholars said.

Could the region's high foreclosure rate also affect the Nov. 6 election?

Dr. Estrada Correa, an Assistant Professor of Sociology; and Dr. Johnson, an Associate Professor and Chair of Political Science, will discuss their study, its findings, other possible impacts and other research regarding voter turnout at the October Randall Lewis Seminar. The seminar, which is free, will be held at 5:30 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 24 at the CE-CERT Building, 1084 Columbia Ave., Riverside. (See MAP)

Professor Estrada Correa's current work focuses on aspects of racial stratification related to housing and neighborhoods. She has studies racial inequalities in homeownership trends, racial disparities in real estate and mortgage lending outcomes, and the implications of residential mobility patterns for racial segregation, immigrant assimilation and health outcomes. She is currently studying the impacts of the housing crisis on the Inland Empire, particularly focusing on neighborhood change resulting from foreclosures.

She earned a Bachelor's degree in Human Biology at Stanford University and Master's and Ph.D. in Sociology from UCLA.

Professor Johnson's research and teaching interests focus on American political behavior and public policy. He is currently studying how social context and other sources of information shape public opinion and the policy choices governments make.

He earned a Bachelor's degree in Journalism from Louisiana State University and a Master's and Ph.D. in Political Science from Rice University.
