The price of everything, the value of nothing

first_imgThe price of everything, the value of nothingShared from missc on 29 Mar 2015 in Personnel Today Writing in the FT this weekend, food writer Tim Hayward identifies the subtle feelings provoked when quality restaurateurs outsource parts of their production. It reminded me of a conversation I had in Madrid a couple of weeks ago and made me curious about how organisations engage in moving production and service around the world.

High Street faces two years of pain

first_imgThe figures might show an increase in retail sales – but experts have predicted another two years of misery on the High Street.Office for National Statistics data showed an, on the face of it, upbeat 0.6% rise in sales between September and October – but the increase was boosted by in-store promotions, with discounts of up to 50%.The findings prompted accountant Deloitte to warn the high street faces a rough ride with “no sustainable growth until 2013 at the earliest”. And it comes after gloomy predictions from the Centre for Economics and ­Business Research on Wednesday that jobless figures will keep growing for another two years.Richard Hyman, from Deloitte, said: “Christmas 2011 promises to be the most important moment in retail trading we have seen for many years. Demand has been softening throughout the year as the impact of the ­Government’s debt reduction strategy has started to filter through to the pockets of consumers. Therefore, it is very difficult to see where future sales growth will come from.”last_img read more

Warren Haynes Reunites With Members Of The Allman Brothers For Les Brers At Wanee [Full Audio/Video]

first_imgWith the exception of Derek Trucks, virtually every member of the Allman Brothers Band attended the Wanee Music Festival this weekend in Live Oak, FL. After a killer Widespread Panic show, which included a sit-in from Warren Haynes, attendees made their way to the Mushroom Stage for some after-midnight Allman Brothers jams by the new supergroup Les Brers.Named after the second track from the famed 1972 Eat A Peach album, Les Brers is a continuation of the Allman Brothers Band, but with a freshly revitalized approach. The group’s roots run extremely deep in Allman Brothers blood, with over half of them being members of the since-retired, forty-seven-year-old southern rock band.In addition to the original drummers Butch Trucks and Jaimoe, the band is complete with ABB’s latest rhythm section, including bassist Oteil Burbridge and percussionist Marc Quinones. Before them, stand guitar master Jack Pearson, who played with the Allmans from 1997-99, his guitar mate Pat Bergeson, along with longtime collaborator Bruce Katz on keys, and Lamar Williams, Jr., son of bassist Lamar Williams who played with ABB from 1972-76, belting the vocals.Perhaps one of the best sets to come out of the weekend, Les Brers showed Wanee’s Mushroom Stage that the road indeed goes on forever.The set lasted nearly three hours and included ABB classics “Dreams,” “Jessica,” “In Memory of Elizabeth Reed,” and “Whipping Post,” along with non-traditional, jammed-out renditions of Dr. John‘s “Gilded Splinters,” and Muddy Waters‘ rendition of “The Same Thing,” which featured a very special guest appearance from former Allman guitarist Warren Haynes.Watch “The Same Thing,” featuring Warren Haynes below:“Dreams”Thanks to taper Butch Almberg,  you can stream the full audio here:Also from Wanee, you can watch videos and stream the audio from these very special performances: Gov’t Mule with Jack Pearson, Billy & The Kids with Warren Haynes and Eric Krasno, Joel Cummins with Kung Fu, Umphrey’s McGee’s mash-up set, Warren Haynes sit-in with Widespread Panic for ZZ Top covers, and Karl Denson with Melvin Seals & JGB.

Memorial fund sponsors field trip

first_imgThe Declan Sullivan Memorial Fund sponsored the third annual Horizons for Youth game-day field trip Saturday for 35 Chicago-area students and their “big sib” adult mentors to attend the Notre Dame vs. North Carolina football game. The Chicago-based nonprofit organized a group tailgate, a meeting with former running back Reggie Brooks and a walk onto the football field, as well as tickets to the game itself.Horizons communications coordinator Tim Coffey said this was the first game and first visit to a college campus for many students. The primary goal of Horizons, which provides mentoring, tutoring and scholarships to low-income Chicago youth in kindergarten through high school, is to encourage students to attend college, he said.“We want to show them what [college is] like, get it figured out from the very start, so that they’re always thinking about it, and it works,” he said. “Ninety percent of our students graduate high school, and 80 percent go on to college.”Notre Dame graduates provide essential support for this mission, Coffey said. The organization, which was founded in 1990 by Notre Dame graduates Patrick Collins, Kathy Murdock and Mike Murdock, also includes several board members and student mentors who are affiliated with the University, he said.One of the organization’s biggest benefactors is the Sullivan family. Of Horizons’ 210 students, Coffey said 65 are members of “Declan’s Class,” a group sponsored by the Declan Drumm Sullivan Memorial Fund.Declan Sullivan, a 20-year-old Notre Dame junior and videographer for the football team, was killed in 2010 when the scissor lift from which he was filming football practice fell in high winds.Declan’s father Barry Sullivan attended the tailgate with his wife, Alison Drumm, daughter Wyn Sullivan, a Notre Dame graduate student, and son Mac Sullivan, a sophomore. Barry Sullivan said after Declan died, donations began to pour in, and shortly after, the family established the Declan Drumm Sullivan Memorial Fund and began looking for an organization to support.“We tried to think of something we could do that would have a positive effect, to honor his legacy positively instead of negatively,” Wyn Sullivan said.Barry Sullivan said Horizons for Youth appealed to the family because it was a local organization and was near Old St. Patrick’s Church, where all of the Sullivan children were baptized.“The more we found out about it, the more we liked it,” he said.Over the next two years, Coffey said the memorial fund provided hundreds of thousands of dollars to sponsor Horizons’ students, who are chosen based on financial need and their families’ willingness to commit to the program. As a result of donations, he said the memorial fund became an integral part of the organization’s ability to take on students.“We’ve grown exponentially for the last couple of years because of Declan’s family,” Coffey said. “We have a gala every year in his memory, and [we’ve raised] a little over 2 million dollars in the three years we’ve done it so we’ve gotten to add students.”Horizons board member Bob Dunklau, whose company OMI Industries in Chicago funded the trip, said working with a Horizons student through its mentoring program was like having “a winning lottery ticket.”“It’s so much more than the educational,” he said. “Obviously there’s the educational part, but that mentoring relationship, when you spend some time with these kids, it doesn’t take you long to see how that relationship is. Who’s that guy out there? It’s your parent, your older sibling, your friend all combined in one, and it’s really a lifetime relationship.”Coffey said the program would not be where it is today without the support of the Sullivan family.“They’ve changed the program,” he said. “We would not be here without them, for sure.”Tags: Chicago, Declan Sullivan Memorial Fund, Horizons for Youth, Mentors, Tim Coffey, UNC football gamelast_img read more

Video clips added to the Bar’s Web site

first_imgVideo clips added to the Bar’s Web site November 15, 2003 Regular News Video clips added to the Bar’s Web sitecenter_img The Florida Bar has begun broadcasting video clips on its Web site on topics of interest to lawyers and the public.The first clip is an excerpt from an education videotape prepared by the Office of the State Courts Administrator on the importance of funding for the Florida court system. A clickable button on the Bar’s home page at www.flabar.org will take viewers to the video.The clip features Supreme Court Chief Justice Harry Lee Anstead talking about the importance of the legal system to all Floridians and instructions on how viewers may contact their lawmakers to encourage full funding for the courts.Other potential upcoming subjects are broadcasting part of the Board of Governors’ December meeting when they take up multijurisdictional practice rules and the ABA’s Ethics 2000 recommendations.The board, at its October meeting, approved an $11,340 budget amendment to experiment with the clips for the remainder of this Bar fiscal year. The plan was endorsed by both the Communications and the Budget committees.Board member Mayanne Downs, a member of the Communications Committee, and her husband, Barry Rigby, who used to oversee the Bar’s grievance operations, came up with the idea at a board meeting earlier this year in Orlando.They both enjoyed a welcoming speech by Mayor Buddy Dyer, a former state senator and member of the Young Lawyers Division Board of Governors, and an inspirational talk by Chief Justice Anstead on the need for adequate court funding.“It was such a wonderful talk, and on a break Barry and I said, ‘Gee I wish the entire Florida Bar could have heard that.’ And then it was, ‘Well, why couldn’t they?’” Downs recalled.“We could take inspirational talks and activities. What a great opportunity not only to bring those messages to our membership, but to the Florida citizenry as a whole,” she added. “Barry’s thought was we’re already using the Web site, so why couldn’t we do it there?”She pitched the idea to the Communications Committee, which studied it and made its recommendations to the Budget Committee and then the full board.Communications Committee Chair James Lupino told the board the committee will be considering several possibilities for future Web broadcasts, but wanted to start with the court funding issue, which is a top Bar priority. Other possibilities the committee has looked at is replaying parts of important Board of Governors debates and airing highlights from the Midyear and Annual meetings.Also expected to be included are links to other resources. For example, with the court funding video clip, viewers will be offered a link to online information at the state courts system’s Web site on the judiciary’s financial needs. Clips from board meetings or Bar events might be linked to Bar News stories, Lupino said.Budget Committee Chair Jesse Diner said his committee recommended a budget amendment of $11,340 to fund the project, and said the Communications Committee will be in charge of deciding what to air through the Bar’s Web site.The board unanimously approved the recommendation.last_img read more
