International Space Station can be seen tonight at 4:49 for 5 minutes; 44 degrees. Appears SSW and disappears ENE. I shared a story about helium used in the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day parade-where it comes from; how it gets to the parade; how much is needed for the balloons and what happens to the helium AFTER the parade. I also shared some Thanksgiving crafts you can make with the kids and/or grandkids and talked about the benefits of cranberries. Recipes shared: Turkey Cranberry Sandwiches, Simple Roasted Butternut Squash and Green Bean Frittata.

LOYALTY AND SACRIFICE: USHERING NEW HORIZONS FOR BUSINESS LEADERS IN THE DIGITAL AGE, Raghu Kale

Loyalty and Sacrifice are inseparable. In the case of war heroes and employees, sacrifice is well recognized and celebrated. In the case of customers, the question is: are customers capable of sacrifice? This book proposes a holistic and uniform definition of loyalty and embraces its hidden facets to re-define customer loyalty. It provides a new framework with four axioms of loyalty and four L&S Principles supported by over 30 true accounts. A new concept of Latency Factors, based on cognitive bias and mental patterns, that identifies the blind spots in our thinking, is also introduced in this book. The relevance of this book is timely as the world is witnessing rapid digital progress. Only if basic definitions are precise, can advanced algorithms be useful for worthwhile human progress.

 

We talked with Marianne from LAMERS about the “Charleston & Savannah”  tour departing next March; I shared information on herbs and spices and a recipe for using leftovers: Sweet Potato Brownies
