Step by Step: How Elon Musk Built His Empire (by Anna Vital)“The next Bill Gates will not build an operating system. The next Larry Page or Sergey Brin won’t make a search engine. Tomorrow’s champions will not win by competing ruthlessly in today’s marketplace. They will escape competition altogether, because their businesses will be unique.”– Peter Thiel in “Zero to One” In the bookZero to One, prominent entrepreneur and investor Peter Thiel shares his vision on what it takes to create an extraordinary company. Specifically, Thiel believes that instead of making incremental upgrades to an existing product or service, a company must aim to do something completely new to avoid ruthless competition.

Justice for Singson?

From the Philippine Daily Inquirer.

SPEAKER FELICIANO Belmonte Jr. said the House of Representatives will initiate an “ethics investigation” into the case of Ilocos Sur Rep. Ronald Singson. Several legislators have called for the expulsion of Singson after reports surfaced that he would plead guilty to the lesser offense of drug possession before a court in Hong Kong, where police have lodged the graver charge of drug trafficking.

Reports have it that Singson would be facing a charge of “disorderly behavior,” which Belmonte says could be meted out the maximum penalty of expulsion. Right off, accusing Singson of “disorderly behavior” seems rather underwhelming. “Disorderly behavior” would cover, say, a member of Congress slapping the House sergeant-at-arms at the height of an impeachment vote; or a Muslim member of Congress slapping a waiter over the alleged offense of serving pancit cooked with pork. (Neither of these cases, by the way, merited either an investigation or a reprimand.)

But even the mere possession of cocaine, smuggled into Hong Kong after Singson was escorted through the Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA) and evaded basic security scrutiny, is already a huge black mark against the Philippines, never mind Filipino lawmakers. To think that Filipinos were already suffering a bad rep due to the botched Luneta hostage rescue. Maybe the people of Hong Kong (if not China) are convinced we’re such f—k-ups because even our “respectable” officials are perpetually high on drugs!
