Did they learn nothing from Jurassic Park? I thought reverse engineering a chicken to turn it into a dinosaur was bad enough.

Do you really need someone to tell you what to do at work?

Three years ago, Swedish software consultancy Crisp decided that the answer was no.
The firm, which has about 40 staff, had already trialled various organisational structures, including the more common practice of having a single leader running the company.

Crisp then tried changing its chief executive annually, based on a staff vote, but eventually decided collectively that no boss was needed.

Yassal Sundman, a developer at the firm, explains: "We said, 'what if we had nobody as our next CEO - what would that look like?' And then we went through an exercise and listed down the things that the CEO does."
The staff decided that many of the chief executive's responsibilities overlapped with those of the board, while other roles could be shared among other employees.

http://edition.cnn.com/2017/02/16/world/ups-trucks-no-left-turns/index.html


UPS trucks almost never take left-hand turns. By favoring right-hand turns at all times -- unless a left is unavoidable -- the carrier saves millions of gallons of fuel each year, and avoids emissions equivalent to over 20,000 passenger cars. The practice started decades ago, before computers and GPS, and is now managed by a software that conjures the most efficient route for each truck.

Left-hand turns are generally considered unsafe and wasteful on right-hand driving roads, such as those in the US ...

A study on crash factors in intersection-related accidents from the US National Highway Traffic Safety Association shows that turning left is one of the leading "critical pre-crash events" (an event that made a collision inevitable), occurring in 22.2 percent of crashes, as opposed to 1.2 percent for right turns. About 61 percent of crashes that occur while turning or crossing an intersection involve left turns, as opposed to just 3.1 percent involving right turns.

Left turns are also three times more likely to kill pedestrians than right ones, according to data collected by New York City's transportation planners.

Yeah, the reports made it sound like he narrowly avoided a crash with a passenger plane on the runway or something.

He just went to land in the wrong section. Still a stupid mistake to make and he should have known better since you have to get clearing to land and all that, but it wasn't what they made it out to be.
