Expert tips on how to run a marathon

I can’t wait to return to the London Marathon this year. It has always been a special race for me. 25 years ago, I couldn’t run half a mile after a serious knee injury put stop to my running.

Comcast and the True Path of Innovation

I was never the star soccer player. I played every game throughout high school, but rarely scored. Today, I huff and puff Saturday mornings with friends ages 40 and up, yet my record remains unchanged. They keep fielding me, I think, not just because of my charming demeanor, but because I’m pretty good at placing the ball.

The Next Financial Services Business Model

My wife knows credit cards. She has a couple, of course, but she is also the general counsel of one the world’s leading credit card companies. So, it’s enigmatic that were she old enough in the early 1970s to apply for a credit card herself, her bank would have refused to issue her one. Before 1974, most banks deemed women too high a risk unless they were married and their husbands co-signed for the card.
