Today, a better approach may be to systematically build design and innovation capabilities into the fabric of one’s organizational culture

Pittsburgh Steelers assistant coach Mike Munchak has absolutely no chill.  Towards the end of the first quarter of the Steelers’ Wild Card matchup against the Cincinnati Bengals on Saturday night, Munchak yanked a handful of Bengals safety Reggie Nelson’s dreadlocks.  Nelson barrelled into the Steelers’ sidelines after pushing running back Jordan Todman out-of-bounds. Munchak may have felt like Nelson unnecessarily shoved his running back into the sideline — Todman was nearly out-out-bounds when Nelson hit him, and the extra push sent Todman crashing into the bench. Todman should have been the star of the play for his darting run, but one of his coaches overreacted to a bit of chippiness on Nelson’s part.

A San Diego man accused of sending packages containing sexually explicit materials — including child pornography — to an underage star of the Lifetime reality show “Dance Moms” says the girl and other celebrities communicate with him through coded messages on the Internet. Phoenix Sundown , 36, was arrested Wednesday by police in California after postal inspectors in Murrysville, Pennsylvania, discovered pornography, letters and other items  in packages addressed to the 11-year-old. “Dance Moms” follows the careers of several tween girls — and their mothers — at a Pittsburgh dance studio.  Sundown, who has a history of mental illness, faces a felony charge of sending harmful material with the intent to seduce a minor. In a jailhouse interview with KGTV’s Dan Haggerty, Sundown  said the girls on the show talk to him through cryptic messages  on social media.  “It just seems like, ‘Oh this dude is way obsessed.’ But no one is recognizing that there’s communication going on,” Sundown told KGTV.  Sundown has a likeness of the girl tattooed on his neck , according to NBC News.
