'To put the problem in the simplest terms, the interests of the client continue to be sidelined in the way the firm operates and thinks about making money.'.....How did we get here? The firm changed the way it thought about leadership. Leadership used to be about ideas, setting an example and doing the right thing. Today, if you make enough money for the firm (and are not currently an ax murderer) you will be promoted into a position of influence.
Well, see aren't you feeling better...ax murders don't work there.
Ohio Student Is in Hot Water
For more than a month,(or 31 pool parties) Kevin and his fellow dorm mates have been enjoying the benefits of having an on-site spa but all of that is coming to an end. Not entirely without a fight, however.
Kevin maintains he did the necessary research prior to installing the tub. He read the housing handbook and talked his resident assistant. While the handbook does limit the size of small appliances, the heater of the offending tub is no larger than that of a coffee maker.
The university did give Kevin a list of safety and health related reasons why they won't allow the hot tub to stay. Things such as water leaks, heater malfunction that could result in a fire, humidity damage to the room, and the cost of the electricity to run the tub were given as some of the issues.
Kevin did comply and removed the tub...for now. He is filing an appeal.
I am shocked....really, shocked that anyone would actually read the housing handbook. Housing Handbook, The Sequel is being printed as we speak.
No Child Left Behind...Well, maybe a couple
A person is left to wonder if the Chuck E. Cheese has something equivalent to the Bermuda Triangle.
In less than a week, not one but two children have been accidentally left at Chuck's pizzeria.
The first incident happened in Maryland when a 3 year old named Harmony was attending a birthday party. Her parents were in both in attendance and have shared custody of the little girl.
Yet just days later, a 5 year old in Pearland, TX is left behind by a mother with 10 children. In this case the "forgotten child" is also the "birthday girl". Not likely a birthday that will be forgotten anytime soon. The mother didn't notice the girl's absence until the following morning when she was getting the other children up to get ready for school. A full nine hours after the party, the mother called 911 to report her missing child.
The explanation (is there, truly, an explanation?) was that there was a crowd of people at the party. There were 19 children and 9 adults which accounted for a lot of chaos.
WOW...never say never...I am trying to figure out any instance that I wouldn't do a head count on my kids, but then counting to two, I guess is different than counting to ten. Still...even with the distraction of the Whack-a-Mole game calling my name, I just can't imagine not missing a kid for 9 hours.
It hurt, it really, really hurt
A cop who was arrested for assaulting his live-in girlfriend claimed that the victim had attacked him with a Justin Bieber doll during a confrontation in the couple’s Colorado home. Michael Nuanes described his girlfriend as the aggressor in the incident. Nuanes, a Denver Police Department officer, told deputies that his girlfriend had “thrown things, pushed him, shoved him, grabbed him, bit him, slapped him with an open hand, attempted to strangle him and beat him up.” (wordy guy, don't you think?)
According to the report, Nuanes pointed out a Justin Bieber doll that he claimed was the item used to injure him.” He claimed that a thrown Bieber doll--the size of a standard Barbie doll--left him with a “bruise on the outside middle part” of his left foot. According to him "It hurt". (not so wordy, more concise).
Beezow Doo-Doo Zopittybop-Bop-Bop, was arrested on charges of carrying a concealed weapon, possession of drug paraphernalia, possession of marijuana and a violation of probation in Madison, Wisc. His arrest was prompted by a call to authorities by his neighbors that complained of his excessive drinking and drug use.
Zopittybop-Bop-Bop was born Jeffrey Drew Wilschke, according to court records. He legally changed his name to Beezow Doo-Doo Zoopittybop-Bop-Bop in October. (who wouldn't want the name Beezow Doo-Doo Zoppitybop-Bop Bop?)
|Doesn't he look vaguely familiar???|
When Time Is On Your Side
It took 100 years for one B.C. man to tarnish his perfect driving record.
The centenarian was stopped for speeding in a school zone Tuesday, a shock to a traffic officer in the Victoria suburb of Saanich when she saw the 1911 birthdate on a driver’s licence, which was good for another five years.
