What would a theoretical left wing president do?

Okay, I was thinking about this last night, and realized that I don't understand the full extent of the US president's executive powers, and I don't really understand the political-capital consequences for using them. Questions inside! [more inside]

How on earth do you earn this much money?

This story about an IBM sales executive earning AUD $295,000 with a bonus of up to $1 million after allegedly earning $9 million in revenue for the firm, has made me really curious. In my industry, salaries top out around the low six figures. What does a job like this look like? [more inside]

How do I quit my job when I'm effectively irreplacable?

I'm an executive and engineer at a small creative company. For a variety of reasons, I must find new employment. Given our region, the company will not be able to replace me, and several other people will lose their jobs when it folds. That dilemma has already kept me here far longer than is healthy. Nonetheless, I want to do this as gracefully and ethically as possible so that they have the greatest chance to find new employment. How?

Separation of Powers

The subsection of the Colorado Constitution, “General Consideration” under Article III, Distribution of Powers, gives more than thirty-five examples of why and how separation of powers between the executive, legislative and judicial branches of government must be. They all seem to say the same thing, but they all are justified by different dictums, references and notations. Why, at least in Colorado and I suspect, in other states, is there the need for so much specificity as it relates to the republican tripartite system?

Inattentive ADHD

I have a friend who has ADHD primarily inattentive type and struggles with multitasking in both work and home life. Rather than being the hyper person that most of us visualize, he is the exact opposite, very slow and methodical with some rigidity to how he must follow certain rules. My buddy has been struggling in his work place, because he constantly feels overwhelmed. He does see a therapist, but it doesn't seem like any of his issues (at least in the work world) are getting any better. He told me yesterday that people are constantly telling him that he is not present even when he is at work or at home with his wife. It must really be frustrating for him because I know him to be a good guy with good morals. From a brain perspective, it's kind of a bummer because he does take adhd meds, but he is constantly overwhelmed by everything and he tells me that people seem to get frustrated with him even though he is trying. When we hang out, I mainly validate and offer him some understanding. Any suggestions on how to help my friend? [more inside]

Outlook/Exchange mailbox assistant

Does anyone know of any third party add-ons or software for Outlook/Exchange that works as type of a "assistant". What I'm looking for is software that will scan incoming messages based on a list of approved contacts. If a message from one of these approved contacts hits the mailbox, the message will continue to the inbox. If it does not, it will be routed to another folder in the mailbox that the person's admin will have access to. The admin will then have the option to click a link in the email (after review of the message) that will release it into the executive's mailbox and also have the option to add the address to the approved contacts list. Also, if the executive replies to the message, it will also be automatically added to the approved contacts list. I'm hoping there is something out there that we can use to help manage an executive's mailbox.

How come my office chair stopped reclining?

I have one of those pretty standard, leather, 'executive' chairs that you buy at Staples. it has the L-shaped yoke on the right hand side, and the phallic tube extending from the base. Recently it stopped reclining, like, all of a sudden. I remember playing with the Phallus until it reclined again, but that's not working. What do I do?

The executive career path.

I am looking for a book (or three) that deals exclusively with the career path to executive, preferably with a thorough analysis of middle management. I can find far too many books that are little more than Managing for Dummies or on the other extreme, CEO biographies, but nothing in between. Thank you in advance for your recommendations.
