Every living thing has the stuff of stars in it. The cold moon, the bright summer sun and the gentle heartbeat of a newborn have roots in The Big Bang. It is no wonder, then, that from ancient Babylon to modern astronomy, humanity has looked to the night sky for answers. My dad raised me alone. Like binary stars, we held each other against the darkness. Virgo is an earth sign and is represented by an angel with a bundle of wheat in its hand. Virgos are described as logical and modest. Virgo symbolizes justice. My dad, Richard Dandliker, is a Virgo. He planned to study marine biology after graduating from Kansas State University. He loves to talk about the time he went scuba diving in a flooded strip mine. He often tells me about standing in a cornfield as a boy and spotting a seagull gliding in lazy circles overhead. Dad saw the ocean in that midwestern sky. He grew into a practical person, however. When I was born, he put aside dreams of an ocean-faring life and took a … [Read more...] about Virgo and Pisces: A bond between father and son
Cathy Ackermann Special to the Knoxville News Sentinel Published 6:28 AM EDT Oct 29, 2018 Millennials. There are a lot of them, and their influence on how companies sell their products and services is substantial. So, if your business doesn’t have a research-based strategy in this regard, you could be missing out on some important opportunities to expand or further saturate a key market segment, whose buying power is increasing. So what do you need to know in order to be successful in attracting and engaging millennials? First, you need to understand what is (and isn’t) important to them; Second, you must understand how they like to receive information from you; Finally, your outreach messages must be captured within a context that aligns, not only with their preferences, but also with their overall value system. So, in terms of these three defining criteria for success, they are not so different from any target market you may want to approach and positively … [Read more...] about Cathy Ackermann: Which products and services are millennials killing?
Lizzy Alfs Nashville Tennessean Published 6:00 AM EDT Sep 25, 2018 A lot of thought goes into the straws that accompany drinks at upscale Midtown restaurant Henley. Based on your order, you might get a stainless steel straw, custom-cut bamboo or reusable silicone. But you won’t find plastic. The year-old restaurant in the Kimpton Aertson Hotel shelled out more money upfront to invest in plastic alternatives so it could save money in the long run and help protect the environment. Henley is one of many restaurants in the anti-plastic straw movement sweeping the nation. “It’s really important for us to be able to not serve something that’s automatically wasted,” said Henley General Manager James Garrido. Across the U.S., businesses big and small have announced plans to eliminate plastic items such as single-use straws, bags and cocktail stirrers. Starbucks in July said it would remove plastic straws in all its stores by 2020, eliminating roughly 1 … [Read more...] about Nashville restaurants join anti-plastic movement
Robert St. John Special to Mississippi Clarion Ledger Published 10:00 p.m. UTC Sep 6, 2018 Our company has covered most of the bases of the restaurant trade for over three decades. Some are still open, some have been reopened, some are long gone and will never be heard from again. Though, at one time or another, each of those concepts held a special place in my heart as they were born from nothing but an idea and a collection of sketches and numbers on bar napkins and scratch paper. There are a few areas of the foodservice industry we have yet to try. There are also a few concepts in development that I can’t reveal at this time, but we are very excited about what’s coming up in our future. Until a few weeks ago, we had never operated a doughnut shop. Our team opened a small-batch donut shop next door to our community cafe. The recipe-testing process for new concepts is typically a workmanlike, sometimes boring, methodical process. We start with conceived … [Read more...] about Childhood memory creates best seller at Hattiesburg’s Midtown Donut
