Two hundred ninety-nine anonymous individuals independently contributed to Mabus receiving an over 81 percent positive rating on his leadership of the Navy. Mabus was the only leader of a federal agency to be recognized on the list.“This award is rightly shared by the many great leaders, both uniformed and civilian, present throughout the Department,” said Mabus. “I appreciate being recognized and it is especially meaningful knowing the rating is based upon feedback provided by current and former service members and Navy civilians,” Mabus said.For a CEO to be eligible to be included in Glassdoor’s report, they must receive at least 100 approval ratings from employees during the past year. This rating is based on information employees provide Glassdoor about their last place of employment and whether they approve or disapprove of their former CEO.While the comments posted on the site as part of the survey varied greatly, most reflected an appreciation of the importance Mabus places on maintaining partnerships around the globe. Many reviews by current and former service members indicated international travel and opportunities to “see the world” were among the most positive aspects of a career in the Navy. One reviewer who was identified as a former sonar technician cited travel and “being a part of something larger than yourself” as a “pro” of naval service.Mabus is part of a short list of top CEOs nominated from a pool of 250,000 others. Additional top-ranked CEOs include Apple CEO Tim Cook, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerburg, Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos and Starbucks CEO Howard D. Schultz.[mappress]Naval Today Staff, March 29, 2013; Image: US Navy View post tag: News by topiclast_img read more

Neanderthal: Am I My Sequencer’s Brother?

first_imgAssociated Press reported a two-year initiative to sequence the Neanderthal genome (see MSNBC News, and also a separate report on [email protected]).  A progressive creationist society headed by Dr. Hugh Ross, Reasons to Believe, is predicting the results “will show Neanderthals did not evolve into modern humans.” RTB has long contended that Neanderthal Man had nothing to do with the original Adam and Eve.  According to the RTB article, only about 0.03% of Neanderthal DNA has been sequenced so far.  Comparisons to date show Neanderthal distinctives yet some overlap with modern human DNA – yet too little data to establish the amount of relatedness.  “There are no firm answers yet about how humans picked up key traits such as walking upright and developing complex language,” according to the AP article; ”Neanderthals are believed to have been relatively sophisticated, but lacking in humans’ higher reasoning functions.”Of course the Neanderthals don’t believe they are lacking in higher reasoning functions, because they were not invited to the panel.    For a contrasting view of Neanderthal place in a Biblical history, see Answers in Genesis.  For earlier entries here on Neanderthal comparisons with modern man, see 06/06/2006, 02/27/2006, 01/24/2006, 09/23/2005, 05/19/2005, 02/25/2005 and 10/01/2004, or search for Neanderthal or Neandertal in the search box above.(Visited 12 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0last_img read more
