Vela scored just three league goals during his time with Arsenal, and also spent five loan spells away from the club, including one with West Brom during which he netted twice in eight Premier League matches.

Clean-Energy Fans Predict Dark Days for NC Solar if Bill PassesClean-Energy Fans Predict Dark Days for NC Solar if Bill Passes
North Carolina has more solar capacity than any state in the country with the exception of California, according to the Solar Energy Industries Association. But solar-energy advocates say it’s a power source that could “go dark” if a bill quickly advancing through the state Assembly becomes law.Called the “Competitive Energy Solutions for NC” bill, House Bill 589 claims to integrate renewable energy into the existing power grid. However, Rita Leadem, assistant director of the group NC Warn, said consumers need to read between the lines.“It opens the door for Duke Energy to attack net metering for rooftop solar customers,” she said, “including potentially adding fees or changing the rates that are paid to those customers for their electricity.”Net metering credits solar customers for the excess electricity they produce and add to the power grid. The legislation would change that, and limit the building of new solar arrays to periods when the existing power grid can’t keep up with demand. The state Senate is now considering the bill.Duke Energy, the state’s primary electricity provider, has claimed that solar farms are flooding the grid with power on sunny days. However, Leadem and others have said that instead of limiting solar growth, the state needs to update the power grid to keep up with newer, cleaner energy.“When that resource is rapidly decreasing in price every year, ” Leadem said, “why would we want to limit that potential for the clean, renewable resource and the jobs that it could create for this state?”North Carolina largely has benefited from a federal law passed in 1978 and known as the Public Utility Regulatory Policy, which required utilities to buy renewable power from independent producers if it costs no more than electricity from conventional power plants. This legislation would circumvent that law.The bill’s text is online at ncleg.net.
Originally posted on the SHRM Book Blog. To succeed in today’s world, leadership readiness expert and author Erika Andersen believes we have to start each day as novices in order to gain new skills quickly and continuously. No matter what you’re good at now, she says, if you hold onto how it looked and worked five years ago, or five minutes ago, you’ll get left behind. Getting good at being bad first is the most essential and most powerful tool you can have to “future-proof” yourself, she argues.In her latest book, Be Bad First: Get Good at Things Fast to Stay Ready for the Future (Bibliomotion, 2016), Andersen explores how we can become masters of mastery, proficient in the kind of high-payoff learning that’s needed today. With assessments and exercises, she encourages readers to embrace being bad on the way to being great—to be novices over and over again as they seek to learn and acquire the new skills needed in this fast-changing world. “There’s no way around it: in order to thrive in this new world, you have to let go—on a daily basis—of the idea that to be an adult means to be an expert,” Andersen writes. She offers readers a simple model for overcoming internal resistance to learning and for taking advantage of our deeply ingrained human will to master challenges, which she calls ANEW.The method outlines four mental skills crucial to learning: Aspiration. How to make yourself want to learn new things by focusing on the personal benefits of doing so, and then envisioning a future where you’re reaping those benefits.Neutral self-awareness. How to see yourself objectively and accurately, so that you can be clear about where you’re starting from in learning something new—and what you’ll need in order to improve.Endless curiosity. How to re-engage your childhood impulse to understand and master new skills and information. When combined with aspiration, true curiosity creates an unstoppable momentum of discovery.Willingness to be bad first. How to accept that you will be bad at things that are new to you, while at the same time believing that you’ll be able to get good at those things over time.Andersen suggests that anyone seeking to become what she calls a “master learner” start out slowly by looking for low-risk opportunities to try new things and practice new skills. As you get more comfortable, push yourself to learn in higher-risk, more-public situations. And, most important, notice and revise any negative self-talk that doesn’t support you.“Because each one of us today is faced, moment to moment, with an overwhelming flood of information and possibilities that are brand new to us, we have to learn to be okay with being continuously uncomfortable in a way that no one in previous generations has had to do. We have to learn to be comfortable with the uncomfortable,” Andersen says.Erika Andersen, @erikaandersen on Twitter, is a nationally known leadership coach, blogger and author and founder of Proteus, a consulting, coaching and training firm focused on leader readiness.
