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.

First Female Supreme Court of the Philippines Chief Justice

From Philstar.

MANILA, Philippines - President Aquino appointed yesterday Supreme Court Associate Justice Maria Lourdes Punzalan Aranal-Sereno as the 24th chief justice, the first woman to head the country’s highest tribunal.

Sereno is President Aquino’s first appointee to the Supreme Court (SC).

Among her notable votes in the SC are those in favor of the Cojuangcos on land valuation for Hacienda Luisita, and against the departure of former president Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo ostensibly for treatment abroad.

At 52, Sereno is the second youngest chief magistrate after Manuel Moran, who was appointed at 51.

Sereno is slated to become the second longest serving chief magistrate – for 18 years, or until she reaches the mandatory retirement age of 70.

Pre-war chief justice Cayetano Arellano served for 18 years and 10 months.

Presidential spokesman Edwin Lacierda said Aquino signed the appointment of Sereno yesterday and it was immediately transmitted to her office.

Sereno replaced Renato Corona, who was removed from office by the Senate sitting as an impeachment court.

Corona was ousted for failing to disclose all his assets before the public.

“In the midst of this period of deep mourning for the loss of Interior and Local Government Secretary Jesse Robredo, the President is cognizant of his constitutional duty to appoint the next chief justice of the Philippines. He has therefore decided to appoint (Sereno),” Lacierda said in a statement.

“The President is confident that Chief Justice Sereno will lead the judiciary in undertaking much-needed reforms. We believe the judicial branch of government has a historic opportunity to restore our people’s confidence in the judicial system,” Lacierda said.
