Os tempos continuam de feição para quem procura emprego. Segundo o “ManpowerGroup Employment Outlook Survey” para o segundo trimestre de 2019 a que O Jornal Económico teve acesso, o emprego líquido deverá crescer 13%, o que significa que a diferença entre o número de postos de trabalho eliminados por via de uma restruturação ou da perda de relevo de um negócio, e os empregos criados por via do aumento do dinamismo da empresa é claramente favorável aos segundos. O emprego não só se renova como continua a crescer.
Este quadro de prosperidade ultrapassa em quatro pontos percentuais as estimativas feitas para o primeiro trimestre de 2019. No entanto, se comparado com o período homólogo de 2018 deixa à mostra uma desaceleração de um ponto percentual face ao período homólogo de 2018. É um sinal tímido que se, por um lado, mostra que o mercado de trabalho continua bastante forte e dinâmico, por outro, confirma a desaceleração em curso na economia portuguesa.
O aumento do preço dos combustíveis, os custos com a reestruturação e as indemnizações a clientes devido a cancelamentos de voos ditaram que o grupo passasse de lucros de 21 milhões em 2017 para prejuízos de 118 milhões em 2018. As receitas cresceram 9,1%.

How much would you pay for a weekend getaway to Europe?
Contrary to popular belief, you don’t have to hand over a ton of cash to get an incredible experience. According to CNN,this link opens in a new tab the UK's Post Office published its annual City Costs Barometer, which analyzes what tourists are paying (in British pounds) to enjoy a wide variety of amenities offered in European cities.
The Barometer ranks the most cost-effective (read: budget friendly) cities in Europe, finding the most affordable places for tourists to go if they’re looking for a fun, European weekend getaway without having to pay inflated prices for everyday travel needs.
Last year, two satellites the size of cereal boxes sped toward Mars as though they were on an invisible track in space. Officially called MarCO A and MarCO B, they were nicknamed Wall-E and EVE, after the animated robots from the Pixar movie, by engineers at NASA.
They were just as endearing and vulnerable as their namesakes. The satellites, known as cubesats, were sent to watch over NASA’s larger InSight spacecraft as it attempted a perilous landing on the surface of Mars at the end of November.
Constellations of small satellites like the MarCOs now orbit Earth, used by scientists, private companies, high school students and even governments seeking low-budget eyes in the skies. But never before had a cubesat traveled 300 million miles into space.
THE WOODLANDS, Tex.—Back in late 2018 Earth dodged a bullet. Well, almost—a hefty space rock streaked through the upper atmosphere, detonating with the power of a nuclear bomb over an isolated stretch of the Bering Sea, between Russia and Alaska.
The blast occurred roughly 16 miles above the ocean, creating a high-altitude airburst with perhaps 40 percent of the energy released by the destructive February 2013 meteor over Chelyabinsk, Russia.
This late-breaking bombshell was unveiled here by Kelly Fast, NASA’s Near-Earth Object Observations program manager, during a media briefing on the agency’s planetary defense programs prior to the start of this week’s 50th Lunar and Planetary Science Conference.
When venture capital investors are doing due diligence, they focus carefully on the financial side of the business. Does the company have an interesting business model? How big is the addressable market? What are the growth plans of the company? They hire expensive experts and use advanced data tools to answer these questions and ensure that every financial detail is on the table.
But when it comes to evaluating the startup team, gut feel and intuition tend to be the main due diligence instruments that come into play. This isn’t a great approach. Data shows us that 60% of new ventures fail due to problems with the team.
The first time I realized the true potential of YouTube was when my children were very young. A few of my boys were sitting on the floor staring at the television and completely enthralled with what they saw — a grown man playing with toys.
I wondered what the heck was going on. What was this video? And more importantly, why were my kids watching this stuff?
After a quick Google Search, I found out the channel they were watching —Ryan ToysReview — was a wildly popular medium where someone, in this case Ryan, basically plays with toys so kids could watch. It was strange, I thought, but there wasn’t any harm in it, either.
Confidence is a moving target. There are times when you, as a leader, feel strong and ready to confront your challenges head on. But in other moments you feel totally overmatched by circumstances and ill-equipped to respond. This is human nature, and every leader — regardless of tenure and talent — experiences a relentless pendulum swing of self-assurance.
I call this drop from high confidence to low “the dip.” Leaders at every level experience their own version of the dip, and its unsettling motion can cause even the most talented ones todisappear in the moments that matter. When the dip lingers, it can trigger a long-lasting funk with secondary consequences.
