  • Knowledge Universe reaches $1.6 billion in revenue
    Guest
    Ouch, reading all of these comments makes me sad. No large company is perfect, but my little center is. They allow me the space to hire great teachers and provide outstanding curriculum to educate the beautiful children in my care. Sorry there are so many disgruntled employees. I don't feel that way.

    The investment objective of the Scheme is to seek to generate long-term capital growth from an actively managed portfolio primarily of equity and Equity Related Securities. There can be no assurance or guarantee that the investment objective of the Scheme would be achieved. Equity IndiaFund is one of the best plan.

    Get Google to move 5,000 employees from the SF Bay Area to the waterfront site Nike was going to take, then I'll be impressed. Until then, Portland sets its sights way too low.

  • Canvassers: annoying, but apparently effective
    Guest
    A canvasser came to my door. Annoying is an understatement, 6 times I said 'no thank you' with a smile. She was adamant she was not seeking donations, but her last sentence was that she was in fact seeking my info for them to send me a donation pack in the mail. There was no letting up from her, she was pushy, rude and obnoxious. I was polite and understanding, but she ended up angry.my gawd she needs help, she did an injustice to this amazing ...

  • Tip pool ruling cuts restaurant costs
    Guest
    Not exactly true - Starbucks and Batali were cited for including prohibited tasks in the pool, not for pooling. Pooling laws vary by state, but generally pooling is accepted nationwide as it complies with the FLSA rules. I'm seeing high minimum wage state operators switching to service charges and eliminating wages. This allows the operator to fund wages of any task. If this trend of rising minimum wage continues, and states do not honor the ...

  • Tip pool ruling cuts restaurant costs
    Guest
    To those proposing giving owners a "tip credit" to allow for paying less than minimum wage, under that system you cannot force employees to pool tips. The whole premise is you can pay less than minimum wage because they keep all of their tips. Restaurants all over NYC got sued left and right over this issue. Mario Batali had to pay $5 million to cover wage claims when he had mandatory pooling in his restaurants

    I am an owner. In 43 other states, I can hire 4 servers for what I pay 1 server in OR. Instead, I have 2 servers. So half the staff, and twice the cost for me. We have had to go "semi" fast food in order to stay afloat. Now, you come in, order at the register, pay then we deliver the food. Basically, I pay 4x the wage for high paid food runners/buspeople. Let me remind you. You are a foodserver....u nskilled labor. You want $9+ an hour? OK. In ...

  • Republican Vic Atiyeh passes away
    Guest
    Interesting that only Republicans could learn from Gov Atiyeh's bi partisan methods? Would be rather nice if Democrats were also interested in working with the other parties. Gov Atiyeh's success was NOT bi-partisanship but in having a vision for Oregon's future and working tirelessly to promote the interests of Oregonians in general. We want jobs, thriving communities, and opportunities. His tax reform is what brought the Silicon Forest into ...

    Guest
    Governor Atiyeh was a true gentleman and one of our best governors. Current Republicans could learn a lot by studying his bipartisan methods, which were highly effective at a time when Oregon needed strong leadership.

  • Oversight? Or gaming the system?
    Guest
    Enjoyed your article very much. There are enough scams without a legitimate (?) company entering the "S" field. Another good subject to delve into may be the over-sixty-two mortgage gimmick. Most banks and other financials are paying out big bucks for so-called celebrities to hawk their goods, such as former Senator Thompson of Tennnesee. Your writing has always been delightful to read and follow, keep it up. Uncle

    A partnership between charitable and government funding of research makes sense. The theory that "billionaires pet projects" would prevent worthy projects from being funded is a canard. NIH has pet projects as well and is not any less biased toward research serving influential politicians who hold the purse strings. One only need look at how funds are allocated in favor of the disease du jour to realize that the more committed parties offering ...

  • The Scott Kveton affair
    Guest
    Media companies love drama. They also jump to conclusions and grab headlines. People with money attract golddiggers and and con artists like ants to a sugar bowl. Why does society ASSUME he is guilty? Have a trial BEFORE you hang him, before you vilify a man, and by association, his family, children, co- workers, and the many who struggle with running companies. Before you accuse him, before you judge him, at least, at the very least .. .. hear ...

    Honestly do we need to encourage more intoxication with a drug that is nearly impossible to standardize, subject to abuse and overdose, particularly the "edibles" form and proven to cause brain damage, particularly in the young? This is a positive development? I was accosted by a group of youth in Bend last weekend asking if I'd sign the petition...to which I said HELL NO! I was then approached by another young man who said he was asking for ...
