first_imgFast Company:Cold emails can be awful. And yet–we’ve formed valuable mentor relationships via cold email. As journalists, cold emails are often our only avenue for reaching important sources; in our businesses, cold emails are frequently how we make sales and drive growth.The point of cold email is typically to get something out of someone else. And yet, as Adam Grant finds in his 2013 book, Give and Take, “Givers” tend to be far more successful salespeople and engineers and entrepreneurs and humans than “Takers” who are out for themselves. So how does one reconcile the inherent “Taker” nature of cold email with the desire to be more successful (and make the world less crappy)?Email tactics in posts like these give us some ideas. However, we wanted to use a little science to explore cold email strategy for people who want to connect with important people for mentorship or advice and be able to look in the mirror and not see a douchebag. So we put together an experiment:Read the whole story: Fast Company More of our Members in the Media >last_img read more

Power outage disrupts SoCal air traffic

At Bob Hope Airport in Burbank, travelers remained calm after hearing news of delays. Locals left the airport altogether, while travelers from out of town whipped out cell phones to cancel plans. Jane Davis held her head in her hand when she heard of her flight delay. As a result, she would miss all her connecting flights to Pennsylvania and would have to come back to the airport on Thursday, in hope of making it to a 50th reunion party in time. “This is the first flight I was going to take in years,” said Davis, a La Crescenta resident. PALMDALE – A power outage at a key air traffic control center disrupted flights in and out of Southern California airports for more than an hour Tuesday, a Federal Aviation Administration spokesman said. Power was reported out shortly after 5:30 p.m. at the Los Angeles Air Route Traffic Control Center in Palmdale and was restored about 90 minutes later, said Allen Kenitzer, a regional spokesman for the FAA. “The generator kicked in, and backup power was re-established,” Kenitzer said. The FAA said the cause of the problem was not known. But Garth Koleszar, a facility representative of the National Air Traffic Controllers Association for the Palmdale center, said he heard in a briefing that “a truck accident or auto accident took out power to the facility.” “I started driving to Pennsylvania, but I got in an accident. My friend Margaret convinced me to fly. I guess I’m not driving and I’m not flying.” The high desert air traffic facility handles high-altitude aircraft in Southern California and parts of Arizona, Nevada and Utah. Such an outage can cause backups in air traffic nationwide, Kenitzer said. Smaller facilities were helping the center communicate with a large volume of planes that were in the air and heading to the region, Kenitzer said. “Safety is never compromised, but obviously it’s caused an inconvenience,” he said. Some planes on lower-altitude routes were able to take off and land, said Harold Johnson, a spokesman for Los Angeles International Airport.160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.
