Bill Belichick shares the life-changing advice he got from his dad

Work hard no matter the circumstances

Belichick says that his father, who was an immigrant from Croatia and the youngest of five children, taught him about perseverance. “[He] grew up kind of in a poor environment,” he says to Welch. “Went through the Depression. Father was out of work. Two of his brothers had to drop out of school. And World War II.”

“So his big break really was football. [He] worked his way through college,” Belichick explains, “and made a career out of football and ultimately ended up here at the Naval Academy where I think he was destined to be.”

His father saw immigrants to the U.S. as great examples of achievement and working hard. “He talk[ed] about how much he learned from … the quality of people that come [to the U.S.] because of their toughness,” says Belichick, “their work ethic and their devotion to the country.”

That’s something Steve tried to instill in Bill as a child. “And so many of those lessons I learned either from him or from my association with the people at the Navy academy, which represented those same values,” he says.

Do what you love

When it came to his career, Belichick says his father taught him to follow his passion. It’s a lesson he teaches his own children, all of whom work in sports. His daughter coaches lacrosse, while his sons work for the New England Patriots.

“I’ve told them the same thing my dad told me, which is [to] follow your heart,” Belichick explains. “If there’s something that you love and that’s your passion when you’re young, do it. Let everything else take care of itself.”

Uncertainty is good for business, says Wolters Kluwer CFO

The uncertainty brought about by the political situation in the U.S. has benefited the information services company Wolters Kluwer, its chief financial officer claimed Wednesday.

Uncertainty is good for business, says Wolters Kluwer CFO

The uncertainty brought about by the political situation in the U.S. has benefited the information services company Wolters Kluwer, its chief financial officer claimed Wednesday.

Since taking office, President Donald Trump and the Republican-led Congress have set their sights on repealing and replacing Obamacare, reforming tax and cutting regulation. But in recent weeks uncertainty has been raised as to how soon the changes will come into effect, and what businesses and consumers can expect from them.

“Any time there is change or complexity, that is good for a company like Wolters Kluwer because it allows us to reach out to our customers and inform them and help them navigate through that change or complexity,” Kevin Entricken told CNBC’s Global CFO Council on Wednesday. “So when we talk about regulation or deregulation, there are a lot of things that a financial institution will have to grapple with and that’s where we can help our customers.”

Discussing healthcare reforms, financial regulation and tax code changes, Entricken said that, despite the uncertainty in the president’s plans being “a bit of a challenge for everybody,” the complicated landscape would, in turn, benefit his company.

A new stock index that beat the Dow and S&P in first quarter

The CNBC IQ 100 gained 6.8 percent in the first quarter, outpacing the S&P 500’s 5.5 percent gain. CNBC’s exclusive, rules-based index also notched a 1 percent gain in March, as the Dow Jones Industrial Average and the S&P 500 lost ground.

As part of its rules-based methodology, the index has been re-weighted for the second quarter. Microsoft will remain the highest-weighted company in the index for the second straight quarter. MCAM International, the firm whose proprietary algorithms power the CNBC IQ 100, executed the re-weighting for CNBC.

“Microsoft scores very well across multiple industry sectors, including intelligent cloud applications and management, mobile operating systems, industrial internet and connected devices, and hardware and software for distributed gaming systems,” says MCAM managing director David Pratt.

The companies in the CNBC IQ 100 Index are weighted according to each one’s ability to invest in, develop, control and deploy intellectual property to achieve strategic advantage over competitors. Companies with the highest weighting maintain this type of advantage across multiple industries. Pratt says Microsoft beat out its competitors in a total of 12 distinct business types, more than any other company in the index.

With the re-weighting, chipmaker Micron Technology moves from being the fourth-highest weighted company in the first quarter to being equally weighted with JPMorgan Chase and tied for the second-highest weight in the second quarter. Boeing and Dow Chemical will remain the other companies in the top 5.

The index is re-weighted quarterly, and components are rebalanced annually. Micron was one of 10 companies added to the index at the start of 2017, replacing Intel. Micron shares jumped 30 percent in the first quarter, the biggest gainer among the 100 stocks in the index. ExxonMobil was the index’s biggest loser in the first quarter, with a decline of almost 9.5 percent.

Drone complaints soar in the UK, leading to growing annoyance and concerns over snooping

The findings were a result of a freedom of information request submitted by the Press Association to show the number of incidents logged by police around the country between 2014 and 2016. Their timely release follows several reports of near-misses with passenger planes and drones, and the arrest of Daniel Kelly, 27, last year, who became the first person in the U.K. to be jailed for smuggling items into prisons. But the actual total of cases is thought to be much higher, as not all police force

Drone complaints soar in the UK, leading to growing annoyance and concerns over snooping

The findings were a result of a freedom of information request submitted by the Press Association to show the number of incidents logged by police around the country between 2014 and 2016.

Their timely release follows several reports of near-misses with passenger planes and drones, and the arrest of Daniel Kelly, 27, last year, who became the first person in the U.K. to be jailed for smuggling items into prisons.

But the actual total of cases is thought to be much higher, as not all police forces were able to submit data on the drone cases.

Assistant Chief Constable Steve Barry, the National Police Chiefs’ Council lead for drones, in response to the increase in reports, highlighted a rising “awareness of what drones are and what they can do.”

“We have to balance the growth of this technology by ensuring that the public are aware of the strong regulatory framework and detailed user guidance that is available relating to drone use,” he said Monday, according to the Press Association.

Sussex Police recorded the highest number of drone-related incidents last year (240), followed by Greater Manchester (225).
