The Urban Dictionary defines "meet-cute" as "a scenario in which two individuals are brought together in some unlikely, zany, destined-to-fall-in-love-and-be-together-forever sort of way (the more unusual, the better)." While the initial premise often seems delicious, complications are what provide the situation with added drama. If real life is messy; love...
In my church, where prayer concerns are raised during worship by members of the congregation, the employees of Market Basket were raised up by non-employees. People across the political spectrum talked about refusing to shop out of solidarity for the workers.
Kindness runs in Blair Israel's blood. As a young girl, Blair and her triplet brothers, Brett and Blake, were told stories about how her grandmother and grandfather took homeless people off the streets and welcomed them into their home in Ohio.

Following the trend of "Moneypuck" - how can the Leafs spend more money, to see the highest ROI? The cap is the cap - you can't change that. So where else can they invest in?
2014 Labor Day,
This Labor Day, working families do not have much to celebrate when it comes to wages and job security. But we can celebrate the fact that the deteriorating conditions of work are finally breaking through into broad political consciousness. Last week, the board of directors of Market Basket, one of the last of the independent supermarket chains, agreed to restore the fired CEO, Arthur T. Demoulas, who had treated workers decently rather than just milking the enterprise for dividends as another faction of this family-owned company has sought to do. An uprising by salaried managers and workers had brought the business to a halt. The Market Basket story is particularly instructive, because it represents how so-called shareholder capitalism puts pressure on managers to destroy job security and decent earnings for working people.
When I looked at those parents and children, I heard the anguish in my friend's heart. The joy and pride of one moment. The emptiness and confusion of another. My own tears as I watched my son drive away.

In every one of these cases, there is an answer. There is someone in these governments who knows where these people are or what happened to them.
Accelerators generally accept startups at a slightly later stage, and attempt to compress the timeline to commercialization into a few months, instead of a year or more.
I suppose I must start out with a hat tip to honesty and confess that while the title to this piece is about how my father's dementia makes me laugh, I do have moments where I secretly want to cry about it.

My mother was a gentle soul. In her best disciplinary voice, a whisper at most, used one time during my teenage years, she said, "Bill, I wish you would not smoke -- it's bad for you."
Labor Day encourages a review of the legal status of labor. Worker status is important because numerous statutes such as minimum wage and overtime requirements apply to employees but not to independent contractors.
