The Cal Bar candy bar, once one of the hottest selling products of Morley Candy Makers, a company that arms legions of school kids raising funds for nonprofits, was not renewed.”We just didn’t see eye to eye on a couple of things,” said Morley director of fund raising Ron Kenjorski.”Morley is not Coca Cola. We’re in a niche market and can’t give away the house,” he said.Ken Brenner, president of Brenner Classic Moments, a New Jersey company that markets sports art, said Tufton could be tough to bargain with, but was fair and honest. Brenner is distributing a limited edition Ripken poster by 18 year old artist James Fiorentino, whose work is the focus of the company’s work..
Focus on those who are friendly and demonstrate an interest and enthusiasm for the job.2. Sensationalize the experience for your customers. Good service is not good enough. Discourage “sideline coaching” because it only confuses the player. I had an incident during a tournament game, when a parent would come out of the stands, approach the bench and criticize her child’s efforts. In this situation I pulled the parent aside and requested the parent remain in the stands during game time to avoid further embarrassing her child.
Plan ahead. Plan ahead. Plan ahead.. Water is usually pretty easy to find provided you’re not doing an alpine hike. You’ll want to carry a micro filter or pump. There is also a lot of hikes in Portland itself that can be challenging and pretty without needing to carry much more than some water and snacks.
No one knows the basic laws that govern asset markets, so there a tendency to use new technologies until they fail, then start over. Calvin dad was effectively describing the process by which we test financial innovation.It took a huge crisis to teach the financial world the dangers of securitizationMortgage backed bonds are a good example. The original idea of securitization of mortgages was diversification instead of lenders taking on the risk of individual houses or geographic concentration, they could effectively own a little piece of each housing market in the country.
When I was a youngster that was what they used. There were no zip lock bags, there were no regular fold over flap sandwich bags. It was wax paper or nothing. Mobile payment adoption in this country has not gone well, but there this belief that somehow tomorrow there going to be widespread adoption of people paying for things with one of a thousand different cryptos.People yelled for ages about how “Apple Pay gonna disrupt Visa” and that was immensely irritating from the standpoint of those people had apparently put no thought into the idea of what people were using to pay for things via Apple Pay.The main one for me in regards to disruption of cards and this would not be massive disruption but it would cause real concern is Amazon getting into financial products.I do like the fact that GE is now so bad that people are using it as a descriptor.JasonMckennan5425234 1 point submitted 1 day agoI still think the discussion of crypto as a possible disruptor to credit cards is complete fantasy and remains the belief of crypto evangelists who ponder what they like to see without any thought towards whether it realistic or not.There are payment cards you can get right now which allow you to have your value stored in bitcoin then use it at any regular card swipe machine. It uses visa network I think but it is a start because eventually you can upgrade the machines and network to do everything purely on the network (lightning network or using 0 confirmation transactions).Overall though, I would be very careful about dismissing crypto because I have seen incredibly smart people from Stanford, Berkeley etc who are very interested in advancing this technology or building companies around it. It is more popular among tech savvy millennials than anything else really.If crypto is to go mainstream then I see it more as a 50 year long term trend and I see it going mainstream in smaller countries with unstable currencies.dvdmovie1 1 point submitted 1 day agoIt not a matter of dismissing crypto as an asset class (although the incessant hard selling evangelism around the asset class from many not you, but many is a considerable turn off), it a matter of the view that I hear constantly of “crypto gonna replace credit cards imminently.” People are not going to be transacting en masse for all manner of daily transactions in crypto any time soon, if ever.”I see it going mainstream in smaller countries with unstable currencies.”dvdmovie1 20 points submitted 2 days ago”but this is pretty clearly a material misrepresentation of fact around the details and status of this buyout plan.”They should have taken away his Twitter account ages ago.
