WSO 10 Year Anniversary: THANK YOU (10% Off Site Wide for Month of July)

As we approach our 10 Year anniversary, I'd like to thank the thousands of members that have made WSO an incredible resource to millions of readers. The last 10 years have been an amazing ride and I can't wait to tackle the next 10!

As part of our celebration, we thought a 10% site wide discount would be a small way to say thank you to our customers and members that have been loyal and supported us through the ups and downs. So, for the month of July only, you can get 10% off any and all WSO products & services by using the code "10off" when checking out.

Thanks again for an incredible 10 years and I hope we can keep on improving, growing and challenging ourselves to be better.

Reuters IBD Global Review 2015

Sup monkeys, here is super detailed analysis of market share, fee share, broken down by division and by industry group and across regions. Should basically answer 90% of questions that get posted on this forum over and over again. (which group is best in x, rank xyz for me etc etc). And all incredibly recent too.

Think it will also help clear up alot of the misconceptions and outdated 'rankings' on this board.

3 Myths About Excellence That I Used to Believe

This week, I want to share with you one of the sources that inspired my quest to deconstruct excellence. It was a fascinating (but very long) report in Sociological Theory that made me realize that the three things I thought I knew about what makes great people who they are were complete myths. This is what I learned:

The Jane Goodall of Excellence

Hamilton College Professor Daniel F. Chambliss spent a year and a half conducting a feat of unprecedented sociological research in the world of swimmers - living with coaches, attending practices, going to team meetings and parties, and interviewing over a hundred national and world class athletes.

Woman Awarded $18M in Sexual Harassment Suit Against Wall Street Boss

No doubt that the CEO made some pretty terrible decisions, and surely he deserves some punishment for stalking and threats...but $18 million? Probably a small dent for his part, but the lady is set for life.

From ABC news: (Link inside the post)

Woman Gets $18M in Sex Harassment Suit Against Wall Street Boss

A young Swedish woman who sued her former Wall Street executive boss over lurid allegations of sexual conquest, betrayal and stalking was awarded $18 million by a federal jury Monday.

Hanna Bouveng, 25, accused Benjamin Wey in an $850 million lawsuit of using his power as owner of New York Global Group to coerce her into four sexual encounters before firing her after discovering she had a boyfriend.

The jury in federal court in Manhattan awarded her $2 million in compensatory damages plus $16 million in punitive damages on sexual harassment, retaliation and defamation claims. It rejected a claim of assault and battery.
