Planning a fairy tale wedding is probably a dream that most brides-to-be have had since they were in pigtails. The dress, the cake, the bridesmaids, the honeymoon all seem like pretty simple subjects to address when the time comes to begin planning the big day. When and if, it becomes too much too handle, do yourself a favor - consult with a wedding planner. You will save time, money and unnecessary stress.

Cirque du Soleil: where problem solving begins with imagination. Cirque du Soleil isn't a circus, it's a global entertainment company. Although they perform under some of the most rigorous physical conditions, they continue to push the experience level for the attendee. What they are setting out to do is create an environment for that type of creative person as Harvard Business School is regarded to businesspeople. Interview day can be a circus like event, chaotic, fast paced and prone to a hiccup.
 
Barack Obama's White Appeal and the Perverse Racial Politics of the Post-Civil Rights Era Print E-mail

Black Agenda Report
Barack Obama's vaunted cross-racial appeal means whites have finally found a Black politician they feel comfortable with - in contrast to their feelings about the great bulk of African Americans. Is that a good thing? Emphatically not, since it is predicated on the belief that Obama isn't really "all that Black." Obama actively encourages notions of his own "exceptionalism" through his "deep willingness to accommodate white supremacy." His declaration that Blacks have already come "90 percent of the way" to racial equality signals to many that the days of having to listen to African American complaints are almost over - when nothing could be further from the truth.

Interviewing
In real estate, professional home stagers are practiced in the art of preparing a home for resale. They target the “flow” of a home, eliminate clutter, rearrange furniture, and assist in enhancing curb-appeal. Some professional stagers keep their basement or garage filled with props - everything from antiques and art to eclectic furniture and knick knacks. With lots of competition in the market, Stagers help your home measure up. In part 2 of this series, I stage a strong interview on your behalf. There is plenty of competition.

The Black Commentator
We’ve started a new tradition for Father’s Day and are inviting all Fathers, Step-Fathers, Adopted Fathers, Foster Fathers, Surrogate Fathers and any other type of Fathers to participate with us. Ordinarily, on Father’s Day, Dads are expected to receive gifts and other pleasures from their offspring. Of course, we have never gotten anywhere near the level of goodies that Mothers get on their day, (our lobby isn’t as powerful as theirs), but that’s not what this is about. What we’re proposing is something entirely different. We’re starting a tradition of Dads giving their children a gift on Father’s Day: a photograph of themselves.

Interviewing
Star candidates bring a spoon when others bring a shovel to the task of preparing for an interview. Kevin Hall, an Account Executive w/ Data Point Inc., will tell you this is why we win! Star candidates reach beyond reviewing the standard about, services, and press release pages. Their focus extends into areas often ignored as one prepares for their interview. Star candidates first focus on uncovering the organizational culture, areas of expansion, and key challenges facing their new employer or client. To know thy competition is to further strengthen the conversation.
