The Carbon Dioxide in a Crowded Room Can Make You Dumber | Science | Smithsonian
“As part of the study, they put four participants at a time in a small, office-like room for three periods, each 2.5 hours long, with a one hour break in between. For each group, they pumped in enough pure carbon dioxide to achieve three different concentrations in the air: 600, 1,000 and 2,500 parts per million (ppm). For reference, the air outside typically has a carbon dioxide level around 380 ppm, but because we exhale the gas when we breathe, levels indoors are generally much higher—in crowded classrooms or meeting rooms, levels frequently reach 1,000 ppm and sometimes exceed 3,000 ppm.

During the periods the participants were in the enclosed room, they completed decision-making tasks as part of the Strategic Management Simulation, a test developed by SUNY that asks participants to make decisions based on hypothetical scenarios. It then scores test-takers in nine different areas: basic activity, applied activity, focused activity, task orientation, initiative, information orientation, information usage, breadth of approach and strategy.

Although the researchers suspected the participants' abilities might diminish slightly, they were surprised by just how significant the effects of the carbon dioxide were. Decision-making decreased moderately at 1,000 ppm as measured on seven of the nine scales, with decreases ranging from 11 to 23 percent, and significantly on those same scales at 2,500 ppm, with decreases of 44 to 94 percent. The most dramatic effects were found in the participants' ability to engage in strategic thinking and take initiative. "The magnitude of effects measured at 2,500 ppm was astonishing—so astonishing that it was almost hard to believe,” Berkeley Lab scientist Mark Mendell, a coauthor, told Science News.”

Explaining Elevate’s Recent Acquisitions (088) | Legal Evolution
We thought long and hard about where our gaps were. We didn’t want to poach from our competitors, so we decided that the best way forward was to invite seasoned leaders to join Elevate, by persuading them to tie their rafts to ours. We then asked customers (even including those that had decided not to work with Elevate) to tell us which entrepreneurs, managers, and companies they thought were our best competitors!

How would we finance all these organic investments and acquisitions in a way that ensured that management didn’t give up control? The law department of one of our customers, Morgan Stanley, introduced us to their private credit and equity group, Expansion Capital. The Expansion Capital team’s advice was helpful in designing our growth financing strategy. By the end of 2017, we closed a $25 million credit facility with them to finance organic investments and the strategic acquisitions.

The acquisitions we made were based on the following three pillars that have been at the heart of Elevate for many years: Strategy, Culture, and Customers.
