A major and significant downsizing of our US military is happening right now. 1.3 million US armed forces members are being pushed out before the date that their enlistment papers and contracts state. This reduction, coupled with the hundreds of thousands of recent US veterans that have transitioned back into the civilian world and that still have not found sustainable employment, threatens to make the unemployment crisis among US veterans a catastrophe. Their finding suitable employment just became much harder than it already is! Fortunately, there are solutions. The National Institute of Training and Education has several training programs for US veterans in...

We are all so blessed to live in America: To be citizens of a country that has been the light of the world since its inception in 1776.

Lying: The Way of the World

Posted by on in News
We all know this to be true. Seemingly, every one lies nowadays. It is the way of the world. Certainly we know that politicians lie constantly. They make promises that they know they will never fulfill. Mechanics take advantage of our ignorance and charge for repairs that are completely unnecessary. Doctors insist that we have surgeries that we don’t need. Dentists too. Bankers and mortgage brokers, contractors, car salespersons, etc. The list is endless. Who believes that the ads we read and see are telling us the real truth? “Buyer beware!” This is an adage that we must live by.Why...

 The Weekend Hunger Backpack Program was designed to supplement meals for children, who depend on their school for breakfast and lunch, during the school week. The program identifies chronically hungry children who are in need of nutritional assistance over the weekend. Volunteers fill the backpacks during the week to be taken home on Friday with enough food for the child and their siblings for the weekend. In Alachua County, one in four children don’t have enough food to eat each day. Lack of access to a nutritious and adequate food supply has implications not only for the development of physical...

Saving US Military Marriages and Families

Posted by on in For Families
I am writing this not just to describe our critical program for US veterans, but also to inspire you to action. This is an effort that all Americans should support. Let’s see if I can convince you. In 2006, after we had begun to lift the spirits of our local US Marines and sailors in San Diego, we repeatedly met military couples that were going through divorce and the break-up of their families. The stress of repeated deployments to combat and just the daily hardships of military service was wearing down our exemplary US patriots that volunteered to use their...

Quality the Foundation of Organizational Success Edward Deming a statistician transformed the business world with the introduction of statistical process control. The basis of Deming’s philosophy was an organizations relentless commitment to exceptional quality and the sustained aspiration to achieve zero defects. This way of thinking was not aligned with the prevalent thinking in American business circles following WWII, which accepted a certain level of quality defects and instead focused on mass production, continued sales and limited competition as the formula for organizational success. Spurned by the auto manufacturing community in America Deming took his knowledge and talent to Japan and...

America is producing fewer and fewer new businesses. This is a crisis. The percent of our population in their twenties that are entrepreneurs has plummeted to its lowest rate in 20 years and continues to decline! 92% of US business owners are over the age of 45.
