Almanac

October 1

1832 Henry Clay Work – American composer (d.1884); a printer by trade, he wrote some famous popular songs, including Grandfather's Clock, Father, Come Home, and Marching through Georgia.

1865 Paul Dukas – French composer, critic, scholar and teacher (d.1935); so intensely self-critical, he abandoned and destroyed many of his compositions; best-known work is The Sorcerer's Apprentice; also wrote an opera (Ariane et Barbe-bleue), a symphony, and a ballet, La Péri.

1931 Sylvano Bussotti – Italian composer (76 years old); also a well-known film director, actor, and singer; notoriously flamboyant and occasionally shocking: staged a high-profile resignation from the Venice Biennale in 1991 by bringing in a famous prostitute to give the keynote speech.

1998 first performance of the Emerson Concerto by Charles Ives (arr David G. Porter) for piano and orchestra, with soloist Alan Feinberg and the Cleveland Orchestra, Christoph von Dohnányi conducting.

22:00 CITY CLUB FORUM – recorded Friday at The City Club of Cleveland, a citadel of free speech, LinkedIn and the Future of Work - Nicole Isaac, Head of U.S. Public Policy, LinkedIn

Seventy nine percent of Americans who have looked for work in the last two years utilized online resources. Looming large is LinkedIn which consists of nearly 500 million registered users in 200 countries and territories. There are many issues facing our workforce today including displacement through automation, increased unemployment and underemployment, and talent attraction and retention.

Given LinkedIn's troves of data and connections, they have come forward not only as a place to build professional networks, but also as a platform that measures, trains, and connects talent and opportunity. As we look to the future of employment, what are trends are emerging and what can we expect when we talk about building the workforce of the next generation?  Michael Goldberg, Assistant Professor of Design and Innovation at the Weatherhead School of Management at Case Western Reserve University, talks with Nicole Isaac, Head of U.S. Public Policy at Linkedin, on how the organization is creating new economic opportunities for workers.
