Take Some Lessons From Miles Davis

Tom Garrubba, VP/CISO of the SFG/Shared Assessments Program, is a recognized advisor, author, and instructor on IT and operational risks. 

As a fan of biographies, music, and history, I enjoy learning about historical figures and events and often identify applicable concepts I can use in my life or profession — especially from people who we might not normally recognize as leaders. Often, these people tend to not just shape others around them but also tend to modify or even alter the direction of their industry and society.

Miles Davis fits this description.

Most people recognize Miles simply as a jazz musician; however, he was one of the most influential musicians of the 20th century and not only changed the direction of jazz multiple times, but also influenced popular music, style and culture.

Fantasy Football Rankings Week 5, 2020: Model that beat experts says start Mike Davis, sit DeVante Parker

Running back depth has been tested by major Fantasy football injuries through the first several weeks of the season. Browns star Nick Chubb was the latest tailback to go down after he sprained his MCL in Week 4. Chubb was put on injured reserve and will miss at least six weeks, opening the door for former Pro Bowler Kareem Hunt to soar up the Fantasy football rankings. Jaguars running back James Robinson has also been a pleasant surprise, putting up 446 yards from scrimmage and three touchdowns through four weeks.

Hunt has a tough matchup against a stingy Colts defense this week, but Robinson will attack a Houston defense that ranks dead-last in rushing yards allowed, potentially making him one of the most popular Fantasy football picks. Before locking in your Week 5 Fantasy football lineups, be sure to check out the Week 5 Fantasy football rankings from the advanced

Lakers-Heat NBA Finals betting odds: Expect LeBron James, Anthony Davis to lead L.A. to a title in style

This is somewhat premature, but in the past several days, 2021 championship odds have begun to circulate. Unsurprisingly, the Lakers are the early favorite, and with the 2020 championship now likely in hand, it’s never too early to start thinking about future profits. So here’s something to ruminate on as the Lakers fight to win their 17th championship: if LeBron James plays at this level next season (a big “if”), the Lakers will almost certainly be better next season than they are now. 

Unlike most of their fellow contenders, there is a good chance they’ll be able to use the full Mid-Level exception in free agency. Given the lack of cap space around the league, that should net them a quality starter. Almost all of their leftover salary is expiring, so if they want to package a few players with either Kyle Kuzma or some draft picks, they could add
