Start the day right – make breakfast for everyone
“To hinder the description of illness in literature, there is the poverty of the language. English, which can express the thoughts of Hamlet and the tragedy of Lear, has no words for the shiver and the headache. It has all grown one way.”
“Yet it is not only a new language that we need, more primitive,
more sensual, more obscene but a new hierarchy of the passions;
love must be deposed in favor of a temperature of 104;
jealousy give place to the pangs of sciatica;
sleeplessness play the part of the villain,
and the hero becomes a white liquid with a sweet taste —
that mighty Prince with the moths’ eyes and the feathered feet,
one of whose names is Chloral.”
The Dancer and the Actress
Rhyming Couplet Ideas by jay
See the snorting of the dancer,
I think she’s angry at the lancer.
She finds it hard to see the poke,
Overshadowed by the cold masterstroke.
Who is that looking near the fun?
I think she’d like to eat the spray gun.
She is but a soft acting,
Admired as she sits
upon a subcontracting.
Her clucking car is just a regret,
It needs no gas,
it runs on anisette.
She’s not alone
she brings apologies,
a pet kangaroo,
and lots of chronologies.
The kangaroo likes to chase a hurt,
Especially one that’s in the pay dirt.
The dancer shudders
at the ornamental tickle
She wants to leave
but she wants the Pickell.

Today’s Inspirational Quote:
“If at first you don’t succeed, try doing it the way mom told you to in the beginning.”
— Author Unknown
I did not know about this :
In 2011, scientists studying data captured by NASA’s Kepler spacecraft discovered that a star named KIC 8462852 frequently dimmed before brightening up again. The star is also known as Boyajian’s star or Tabby’s star.
Scientists proposed several causes for this bizarre behavior. Some suggested that the dimming was caused by a group of comets orbiting the star or some other unconfirmed materials in our solar system. Others think that it is caused by the dust around a black hole between Tabby’s star and Earth.
One group of astronomers believed that this effect was generated by a megastructure built by some intelligent life. They think that the star dimmed when the orbiting megastructure passed between the star and the Kepler space telescope. This suggestion generated the most curiosity, causing other scientists to try to determine the real cause of the dimming event.
Dozens of telescopes observed the star when it dimmed again in May 2017. Scientists soon discovered that this was not caused by a megastructure because such an object would block all colors of the star’s light from reaching the telescopes rather than simply dimming it. Scientists concluded that the dimming effect happened due to space dust orbiting the star.
However, they could not decide on the origin of the dust or confirm whether it is really dust. It also seems like the dust is being blown away from the star. This is why some scientists think that an undiscovered celestial body is creating more dust to orbit the star.
In 2016, Brian Metzger of Columbia University suggested that the dust was released from a planet or moon destroyed after straying too close to Tabby’s star.
Are YOU A TABBY STAR which frequently DIMs yourself?

I got suggestions at Toastmasters where I displayed this work as part of my project – people said / and evaluators and mentors said – I must share my own thoughts more than. sharing others! I am taking this seriously in 2019 – may be, I shall not get the Floaters – the casual. visitors coming thru. search engines but I am sure I shall get the support of . all the.

April is the fourth month of the year in the Gregorian calendar, the fifth in the early Julian, the first of four months to have a length of 30 days, and the second of five months to have a length of less than 31 days.
The Romans gave this month the Latin name Aprilis but the derivation of this name is uncertain. The traditional etymology is from the verb aperire, “to open”, in allusion to its being the season when trees and flowers begin to “open”, which is supported by comparison with the modern Greek use of άνοιξη (ánixi) (opening) for spring.
🙂 🙂 🙂
- The first of April is the day we remember what we are the other 364 days of the year. .
- Sweet April showers do spring May flowers. …
- There is no glory in star or blossom till looked upon by a loving eye; There is no fragrance in April breezes till breathed with joy as they wander by.
Since some of the Roman months were named in honor of divinities, and as April was sacred to the goddess Venus, her Veneralia being held on the first day, it has been suggested that Aprilis was originally her month Aphrilis, from her equivalent Greek goddess name Aphrodite (Aphros), or from the Etruscan name Apru. Jacob Grimm suggests the name of a hypothetical god or hero, Aper or Aprus.[
April was the second month of the earliest Roman calendar, before Ianuarius and Februarius were added by King Numa Pompilius about 700 BC. It became the fourth month of the calendar year (the year when twelve months are displayed in order) during the time of the decemvirs about 450 BC, when it also was given 29 days. The 30th day was added during the reform of the calendar undertaken by Julius Caesar in the mid-40s BC, which produced the Julian calendar.
The Anglo-Saxons called April ēastre-monaþ. The Venerable Bede says in The Reckoning of Time that this month ēastre is the root of the word Easter. He further states that the month was named after a goddess Eostre whose feast was in that month. It is also attested by Einhard in his work, Vita Karoli Magni.
St George‘s day is the twenty-third of the month; and St Mark‘s Eve, with its superstition that the ghosts of those who are doomed to die within the year will be seen to pass into the church, falls on the twenty-fourth.
The month Aprilis had 30 days; Numa Pompilius made it 29 days long; finally Julius Caesar’s calendar reform made it again 30 days long, which was not changed in the calendar revision of Augustus Caesar in 8 BC.
In Ancient Rome, the festival of Cerealia was held for seven days from mid-to-late April, but exact dates are uncertain. Feriae Latinae was also held in April, with the date varying. Other ancient Roman observances include Veneralia (April

Playing giving pretend interviews while on my school bus !!
For the past six years, I’ve been honored to serve as Ernst & Young Global Chairman and CEO. My time at EY – including nearly a dozen years on our global executive board – has been one of the most rewarding experiences of my life.
Next summer I’ll step down from my position, and so as I attend the World Economic Forum Annual Meeting for my final time as CEO, I’ve been reflecting on how the conversation in Davos has evolved over the years – and what that says about the changing role of a global CEO in the 21st century.
It’s an understatement to say the world has changed since I took over as CEO in 2013. For example, at one of the first Davos meetings I attended, it seemed like everyone was talking about the potential of new regional trade agreements to drive shared prosperity.
Now many are talking about a potential reshuffling of the entire world order. So the stakes are getting much higher.
Meanwhile, many of the challenges we faced early in my tenure – from rising income inequality to declining trust in institutions – have not changed. Rather, in an age of rapid technological progress and transformative disruption, they have grown even greater and more urgent.
Today’s CEOs have to constantly think about how to improve their business models while simultaneously navigating fast-paced, massive disruption of industries and businesses and a strong undercurrent of uncertainty running through societies around the world.
These growing challenges have made it increasingly necessary for global CEOs to adapt the way they lead their companies and ultimately, to expand the way they think about their roles.
CEOs are accountable for more than financial success
Based on my experience at EY and countless conversations with business and government leaders around the world, I argued a few years ago that the role of the CEO had to evolve.
In a previous generation, it was often enough for CEOs to succeed by charting a course by themselves, then expecting people to follow it. If the business executed well, the CEO would be rewarded. But that’s not the case anymore.
Today businesses are accountable to an increasing number of stakeholders – and everyone from employees to board members are looking to CEOs for a clearer sense of not just where they’re going but why.
That means we need to communicate our vision to stakeholders and convince them we’re on the right path. Just as importantly, we need to communicate our companies’ values – and we have to back them up with measurable and verifiable action.
Why? Because now CEOs speak on behalf of more people than ever, and we’re held accountable in more public ways.
With social media, virtually everything a CEO says or does can be instantaneouslyscrutinized and has the potential to spark a controversy. And in a divisive political climate, our people, our clients and our customers increasingly expect us to speak out publicly when issues arise that conflict with the stated values of our companies.
In the last few years, we’ve all seen the pressure businesses have faced when they’ve been perceived to stand on the wrong side of one issue or another. It all impacts an organization’s brand, which is an increasingly important currency.
This was on my mind when I joined the White House’s Business Advisory Council in 2017. I joined because I believe it’s important to remain engaged with our political leaders. It offered a direct avenue for input and to make important concerns heard.
As a general rule, I think it’s better to be in the room bringing your experience and voice to the debate than outside the room offering criticism. That’s why, although the Council eventually disbanded, I continue to spend a significant amount of time representing EY in public-public initiatives at the global, national and community level.
To be clear, I’m not suggesting that CEOs should act like politicians who espouse their views on purely political or partisan debates. But when there are issues that affect our business or conflict with our values as an organization, we need to have a voice in the conversation.
In today’s global economy, that means CEOs can’t separate traditional “business” issues like trade from issues like immigration or gender equality. These issues also profoundlyaffect our businesses, our people and the communities in which we operate.
If we don’t make it clear where we stand, we risk losing the trust of our stakeholders and in some cases, their business. Moreover, we weaken the sense of community our organizations need and undermine the very values we cherish.
The role of business in society
Of course, this evolution is part of a broader shift in the role of business in society.
Until recently, it was widely accepted that a company’s primary responsibility was to create financial value for its shareholders. That’s who businesses and CEOs were almost exclusively accountable to. While there have always been companies that tried to create benefits for a wider range of stakeholders, this was typically seen as a way to stand out from the pack – not a basic expectation or requirement for success.
In today’s rapidly changing world, however, companies have to create value for many stakeholders to succeed. Shareholder value is still critically important – but isn’t separate from a company’s impact on its people, its communities and more.
Businesses can fulfill this responsibility in a number of ways. For example, perhaps the most valuable investments any business can make is in its own people. Employees are the ones who execute a company’s strategy, determine its culture and serve as ambassadorsto customers and their communities.
They look to their employers to educate and empower them – which is why, on an annual basis, EY invests approximately $500 million and more than 13 million hours in employee development and education.
This is on top of the important experiential learning and mentoring that’s also provided. We’ve also introduced digital credentials known as EY Badges to help people develop skills related to emerging technologies that will benefit them throughout their careers.
Businesses can also increase their social impact by sponsoring educational, mentoring and other community initiatives with other organizations. With a new initiative called EY Ripples, for example, we’re working to help young people gain skills and supporting high-impact entrepreneurs around the world.
By 2022, our goal is to mobilize more than 1 million of our own people and networks to make a direct impact on 10 million people and organizations.
In each case, creating stakeholder value isn’t just a nice thing for businesses to do but rather a strategic imperative that ultimately benefits their shareholders, too.
When companies invest in their people or communities, it doesn’t just create new opportunities for those who directly benefit. It also helps build a stronger workforce and a better overall business environment, creating a win-win for stakeholders and shareholdersalike.
It’s time for the next generation of CEOs to lead
As I reflect on my time as CEO, it’s remarkable to consider how much the world has changed – and how much the expectations of global businesses have changed along with it.
In an era of transformation and uncertainty, people around the world are looking to the business community for leadership.
It’s time for the next generation of CEOs to rise to the challenge. Our license to lead depends on it.

Summary: An absolute moment of horror for any entrepreneur is to witness a competitor blatantly imitating your product or service. SME expert Dhananjay Parkhe shares an anecdote of how he beat imitators at their own game by coming up with a smart counter strategy.
I’ll never forget the day one of my competitors began imitating our products and services. At first it was flattering or at least I told myself so, in order to not lose my calm. I kept repeating to myself that it’s competition that makes the world go round.
But after several months of seeing the increasing similarity between the nature and frequency of our advertisements, size of the products, publications, and later showing up at the same trades hows, I decided that it was time I did something about it.
The superiority and stability of our product was greater than that of our competitors. It was annoying to see them capitalise on our advertising efforts and piggyback on our success by having a similar product. Reading and hearing their claims of how our product was trash, led me to take action. I decided to give them a taste of their own medicine. I did so in an upfront, aggressive but however legit way, that ended my competition’s trade show appearances once and for all.
We used their negative comments and turned them into an advertising campaign, that led to the downfall of their product. But it didn’t end there. Due to the similarity in our product, we often received bitter phone calls from clients about the product they had purchased from our competitor. So many calls started pouring in each month that we played it smart and used this to our advantage. We started offering a discount on our product if customers switched companies. All they had to do was send us their non-working competing product and we discounted our product (usually 30%, sometimes more if needed) and shipped it to them with a full warranty, guarantee and support.
The offer of a ’switch’ did several things for us.
It made our company better known than our competitor. Customers couldn’t believe we would actually take a ‘dead’ trade-in, and exchange with our superior working product. Knowing that we didn’t manufacture the inferior product surprised them.
It increased our sales. By fielding the ‘unhappy camper’ calls that we were receiving by mistake, we turned them into ‘happy campers’ calls.
Our reputation as ’the good guys’ became even more pronounced. Customers throughout our industry were singing praises about our customer service and our product popularity.
Customers began to advertise our product for us. Many of our customers supplied us with personal written testimonies that were then used in trade magazine publications and displayed at industry trades hows.
As if this wasn’t enough, we then began to publicise various offers while attending national and international trade shows. This was by far the most effective and best ‘kill your competition’ move we’ve ever done in our entire 21 years in business.
Remember when I mentioned that they claimed our product was nothing but garbage? Well, if you listen closely enough to your competition’s rhetoric, you can create great opportunities from your adversities. We did just that and came out with sound action and documentation to prove their claim wrong. It is a known fact that documentation beats conversation and we had the hard evidence that our competitor’s product was well, trash!
At trade shows, we came up with a clever way to allow the customers first-hand experience of the inferior product of the competitor and draw a comparison with our superior quality.
This is how we were able to outsmart imitators and create an opportunity from a seeming challenge.
