How to be more productive and eliminate time-wasting activities by using the 'Eisenhower Box'
Business 2 Community
Dwight Eisenhower lived one of the most productive lives you can imagine. Eisenhower was the 34th President of the United States, serving two terms from 1953 to 1961. During his time in office, he launched programs that directly led to the development of the Interstate Highway System in the United States, the launch of the Internet, the exploration of space and the peaceful use of alternative energy sources. Eisenhower had an incredible ability to sustain his productivity not just for weeks or months, but for decades. And for that reason, it is no surprise that his methods for time management, task management, and productivity have been studied by many people.

Arizona monsoon expected to be active thanks to El Nino
KTVK-TV
A meteorology professor at Arizona State University said May 8 a strengthening El Nino could mean more storms and milder temperatures for the 2015 monsoon. "The Eastern Pacific is actually very hot. We have what's called an El Nino in the Equatorial Pacific, and we have a big pool of warm water off the coast of California. Those things are combining to heat up the water, create a lot of moisture, and some of that moisture is making it up into the state. That's giving us the clouds and better chance for rain," said Randy Cerveny.
