Usually when two personalities clash, both parties are partially to blame. If you find yourself in this situation, here are a few tips for getting past the conflict and moving forward.Keep it on the down-low: Obviously when there’s some conflict, you need to find a resolution. The best thing you can do in the process, is to not let it cause division among your fellow employees. When lines are drawn, and allies and enemies are made, it’ll make it ten times harder to resolve the situation. Don’t make it tougher than it has to be.Take five: A back in forth argument usually won’t get you anywhere. You’ll get emotional and will ignore logic and reason. Take a minute to get your thoughts organized and turn those reactions into responses. A clear head always helps when trying to resolve a conflict.Two rights make an argument: You’ve probably heard that “there’s more than one way to skin a cat.” While this phrase is weird and puzzling to small children, it’s also right on the money. There’s often more than one way to be successful at a task. Remember when you find yourself in a conflict, that people see things differently and neither way is necessarily wrong.

Italian defender Tarcisio Burgnich found out in the final that Pele was not like everyone elseParis, France | AFP | Fifty years ago this month, modern football was born at the World Cup in Mexico, kicking and yelling, and live in vibrant colour for a global audience.This weekend marks the anniversary of the quarter-finals of that tournament as a star-studded cast played a thrilling series of knock-out games which built to a dazzling final, when the first World Cup broadcast in colour ended with an unparalleled display by a technicolour team.Mexico in 1970 was not the first World Cup broadcast live. Four years earlier 400 million watched England beat West Germany in the final. But that tournament was shown in black and white. Battered Brazil, the reigning champions, limped out playing, as far as viewers could tell, in two shades of grey.In Mexico, their yellow and green glowed in the sunshine.Most viewers still watched in black and white. But the games were shot in colour and when the many iconic moments are replayed, that is how they are seen. And that is how the competition is remembered, even by its greatest star.“I watch it because there are a lot of videos available and TV programmes,” Pele told FIFA’s website. “If I’m not careful, I always start crying.”The tournament gave Pele his third winner’s medal but the images also cemented his reputation as the world’s greatest player, partly because of three spectacular near misses: a shot from his own half against Czechoslovakia, a header saved by England’s Gordon Banks and the dummy that almost turned a Tostao pass into a goal against Uruguay.“I was at my peak,” Pele said. “We had a fantastic side and everyone expected us to win, which gave me the shakes.”The quarter-finals all kicked off at noon on June 14.Gigi Riva scored twice and Gianni Rivera once as Italy beat hosts Mexico 4-1.Rivellino, Tostao and Jairzinho, but not Pele, scored as Brazil beat Peru 4-2.Reigning champions England, with many of the stars of 1966 but not an ailing Banks and not, by the end, Bobby Charlton, substituted with his team two goals up to protect him from the heat, lost 3-2 in extra time to West Germany. Franz Beckenbauer and Gerd Mueller were among the German scorers.In the semi-finals, in Guadalajara, Brazil gave Uruguay a one-goal start but won 3-1. Again Pele didn’t score, but Clodoaldo, Jairzinho and Rivellino did.In Mexico City, the other semi-final was heading for a 1-0 Italian win until Karl-Heinz Schnellinger scored a 90th-minute equaliser for West Germany.Extra time was 30 minutes of mayhem.Mueller gave West Germany the lead. Tarcisio Burgnich levelled and Riva put Italy ahead. Mueller replied, but a minute later Rivera gave Italy victory.The abiding image is of Beckenbauer playing much of the game extravagantly strapped after dislocating a shoulder when West Germany had already used both substitutes. Share on: WhatsApp – ‘Everybody is still talking about it’ –The best was yet to come.Italy were a good team, with the extravagantly gifted Sandro Mazzola. The defence was built on the great Inter Milan side, pioneers of ‘catenaccio’, with Giacinto Facchetti at its heart. Brazil tore them apart.At an altitude of 2,200 metres (7,200 feet) in dazzling sunshine in the Azteca, Brazil produced a display of attacking football that touched Olympian heights.Mario Zagallo, Brazil’s coach, later said he thought the 1-0 victory over England “was the best game of the tournament…a high-class game of chess.”Yet Brazil’s attacking display in the first colour World Cup final set a benchmark against which every one of the tens of thousands of matches broadcast since is measured.Pele gave Brazil the lead with his fourth goal of the competition.“I told myself before the game, he’s made of skin and bones just like everyone else —- but I was wrong,” Burgnich said later.Roberto Boninsegna levelled, but in the second half Gerson and Jairzinho put the match beyond reach.It was as if Brazil were inventing football. They finished with a flourish, scoring one of the great team goals with four minutes left as full-back Carlos Alberto finished a mesmerising eight-man move by lashing home Pele’s deft pass.“I realise how beautiful and how important that goal was, because everybody is still talking about it,” Carlos Alberto told the BBC years later.“Nobody talks about Pele’s goal, the first goal, the second goal. It is always about the fourth goal. I think it was the best goal ever scored in a World Cup.”It was a fitting exclamation mark at the end of what might have been the best World Cup.
President Trump likens the House impeachment inquiry to a “lynching.” He tweeted the controversial reference this morning and said Democrats are denying him due process, fairness or any legal rights. Trump added — “All Republicans must remember what they are witnessing here…But we will WIN!” The African American lawmaker asked — “Do you know how many people who look like me have been lynched, since the inception of this country, by people who look like you?” Rush demanded that Trump delete his tweet. Illinois Democrat Bobby Rush fired back on Twitter, saying — “You think this impeachment is a LYNCHING? What the hell is wrong with you?”
Israel was referring to last week’s 25-15 vote in Tallahassee, in which the State Senate voted to uphold Governor Ron DeSantis’ decision to remove Israel from office. DeSantis suspended Israel last January, claiming that Israel’s incompetence resulted in his deputies’ poor performance in responding to last year’s shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland.Israel maintains that he was removed only because DeSantis is a Republican and Israel is a Democrat.He provided examples of other mass shootings around the country as proof of his explanation. He says, “No sheriff, no elected official, no police chief has been suspended. Just me.”Israel also referred to many of his deputies as “brave” and “heroes” in their response to the shooting. He adds, “We had one deputy that didn’t go in, referring to Deputy Scot Peterson. “It wasn’t a training issue. It wasn’t a policy issue. It was a fear issue.”The former sheriff says he will run again for that position in 2020, and that he believes the voters still want him as their sheriff.“They understand this election was stolen from them, that the 2016 election for sheriff was wiped out,” Israel says of voters. “The sheriff of any county in America is not the sheriff of one group of people or one city or one town or one area. You’re the sheriff of everyone in the county. As I’ve said all along, the only one responsible for taking lives that day was the evil killer,” referring to accused shooter Nikolas Cruz.850 WFTL’s Karen Curtis will soon interview Scott Israel, as well as his replacement and campaign rival, Gregory Tony. Former Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel says his removal from office was purely political.He tells a local reporter, “It was a political sham. They dealt from the bottom of the deck. We had no chance of ever prevailing.”

Prince Harry made his first public appearance since he and Meghan Markle announced their plans to step back from senior royal duties.The Queen has given her blessing for the couple to live in Canada part-time during the transition.Canada’s biggest newspaper, The Globe and Mail, out with a scathing editorial, reading in part, “Canada is not a halfway house for anyone looking to get out of Britain while remaining a royal.” The article goes on to say: “If they were ordinary private citizens, plain old Harry and Meghan from Sussex, they would be welcome. But this country’s unique monarchy, and its delicate yet essential place in our constitutional system, means that a royal resident – the Prince is sixth in the line of succession – is not something that Canada can allow. It breaks an unspoken constitutional taboo.”The Royal Family issued a statement on Monday that said there would be a period of transition as the Prince steps back. His wife Meghan Markle is already in Canada with their son, Archie. The Prince also issued two video statements today on mental health and the Invictus Games.The editorial arguing it isn’t appropriate for the country to house senior royals as a member of the Commonwealth, the family of nations where the Queen is head of state. But that might be exactly the reason why it makes sense: in 2018 she made Harry Youth Ambassador for the Commonwealth.By the way Meghan and Harry picked a great place to put down roots because a new global survey says Canada is the world’s best country in which to live behind Switzerland. Canada has moved up to number two in this year’s survey, and Japan has slipped down to number three.
Today Pelosi said that she feels very liberated and said there is no such thing as an “eternal animosity” and vowed that we will have a new president next year.Pelose ended with, “He shredded the truth in his speech, he has shredded the constitution in his conduct so I shredded his speech.” House Speaker Nancy Pelosi says President Trump treated the State of the Union address like a reality TV show.Talking to reporters at the Capitol, Pelosi said Trump’s speech was riddled with falsehoods and had no connection to reality.She argued that Trump’s claim of inheriting a mess was wrong and pointed out that unemployment under the Obama administration was cut in half from 10 to 5% and the Dow Jones industrial average has gained about 45 percent since Trump was sworn in nearly three years ago. The Dow was up about 53 percent at this point in Obama’s presidency and a whopping 57 percent in Clinton’s early years in office.Pelosi insisted that Trump inherited a strong and growing economy from President Obama.She also said it was inappropriate for law makers to chant “Four more years” on the floor of the hallowed chamber of the House of Representatives.Pelosi ripped up Trump’s speech when he was finished on Tuesday night. Florida congressman Matt Gaetz says he’s filing ethics charges against House Speaker Nancy Pelosi for ripping up the President’s State of the Union speech.Gaetz says he’s joining two other Republicans in filing charges with the House Ethics Committee. Gaetz said Pelosi disgraced the House of Representatives, “embarrassed our country” and destroyed official records.
In this Feb. 16, 1970, file photo, a defeated Jimmy Ellis as shown in his dressing room after losing heavyweight title bout to Joe Frazier at New York’s Madison Square Garden. (AP Photo/File)LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) — Jimmy Ellis, a heavyweight champion who sparred with an up-and-coming Muhammad Ali and later fought some of the era’s best boxers, died Tuesday. He was 74.Ellis died at a Louisville hospital, brother Jerry Ellis said. Jimmy Ellis had Alzheimer’s disease in recent years.Ellis, the son of a preacher who loved singing gospel music, held the WBA heavyweight title from 1968 to 1970. He lost to Joe Frazier in a fight to unify the world heavyweight championship in 1970. In 1971, Ellis was stopped by Ali in the 12th round. He retired in 1975.Ali remembered his longtime friend as a “master in the ring.”“In the world of heavyweights, I have always thought that Jimmy was one of the best,” Ali said in a statement in which he and his wife, Lonnie, expressed condolences.Ali said his friendship with Ellis began as both rose through the ranks as amateurs in their hometown of Louisville.“As a former champion, Jimmy was known for exceptional hand speed and a strong chin,” Ali said.In this July 27, 1971, file photo, Referee Jay Edson, left, keeps an eye on the fight between Muhammad Ali and Jimmy Ellis, right, in the 12th round of their heavyweight fight in Houston. (AP Photo/File)Both fighters fought under the tutelage of Angelo Dundee. The great trainer often said that Ellis packed more punch than he was given credit for, Ali recalled. But Ali said Ellis’ greatest qualities were his “gentle manner and the compassion in his heart.”“I had a kinship with Jimmy and felt like he and I were of the same cloth,” Ali said. “He was a great athlete and a caring man. Great competitors who happen to be great friends are rare. Jimmy Ellis was that to me and I will miss him.”Ellis defeated Jerry Quarry to win the WBA crown in 1968. It was at a time when Ali had been stripped of his heavyweight title for refusing induction into the U.S. Army during the Vietnam War. Ellis defended the title by defeating Floyd Patterson before losing to Frazier.Ellis was one of the lightest heavyweights, but he compensated with plenty of grit.“He was always the smaller guy fighting a bigger guy, but he was always determined,” his brother said. “He didn’t always come out successful, but he was very competitive. He was a proud winner and he was a proud loser as well.”After leaving boxing, Ellis spent years training fighters and later worked for the Louisville parks department.“He was always true to Louisville,” his brother said. “This was his pride and joy. This is where he wanted to be.”Ellis was preceded in death by his wife, Mary. They had six children together.
