Qantas Runs Late



Flight QF699 Melbourne to Adelaide ran an hour late last night... two little wires can loose on the 737... and you know, it didn't to matter becuase the pilot kept us informed on what was going on. Isn't that all we want... to be treated as if we are important.

On arriving in Adelaide we had to wait to get off the plane... someone forgot to crankout the airbridge... and all that good will went down the drain!!

Rydges Swanston Street.. ugh!

How do taxi drivers get their licences?!?

Arriving in Melbourne on Tuesday evening from Brisbane on The Making The Secret Work for You I was looking for a quick trip into the Rydges Hotel in Swanston Street. After loading my own luggage into the boot of one of Melbourne's infamous Yellow Cabs, I asked the your immigrant taxi driver to take me to: Rydges Swanston Street.

After looking at me a couple of times, because he couldn't understand my English, he gets out his Street Directory, and starts looking it up. What he was looking up I don't know if he didn't understand me I don't know but after 5 minutes he admits defeat and asks me "Do you mean Exhibition Street or Bridge Street.." I asked him to check with his base but he refused so I exited the taxi.

The next taxi driver said "I have been driving for 12 years and there is NO RYDGES in Swanston Street."

The third driver said in his clipped Indian accent: "I am a student and that's just near where I go to Uni..."

I reckon the people who let these people drive the taxis need a catch one every now and again.

Cruel and Unusual Punishment

According to a New York Daily News article, the producers of a reality surgery-and-self-esteem show on ABC TV called Extreme Makeover are now being sued in L.A. Superior Court for literally ruining a woman's life — by rejecting her at the last minute after promising her a life- enhancing whole-body transformation.

How did simply leaving the woman with the face and body she was born with ruin her life? Well the television programmers had already taped the harsh, no-holds-barred comments her entire family and group of friends said about her natural looks —as the poor woman watched from behind one-way glass in the next room!

Of course, this was all part of the show: The people that know her say mean but true things about the way she looks while they tape her crying her eyes out and feeling sorry for herself. Then they transform her into a goddess over a 6-week period (or however long a TV half-season is) through surgery, diet, exercise, and a makeover, and everybody loves her because she's beautiful. And happily ever after, roll credits…

But here's where Extreme Makeover's producers went extremely wrong:

After making her watch everyone who's supposed to love her for HER say the cruelest, most vicious things about the way she looks behind her back did they find out from the dental surgeon assigned to fix her deformed jaw and crooked teeth that the work would not heal in time for the grand finale episode — in which all the makeover candidates get unveiled to the oohs and aahs of both loved ones and the prime-time studio audience.

So they nixed her from the show and sent her packing back to Texas, just the way she was. And that's when all hell broke loose.

I am who I think I am

Phil Evans writes great stuff in his newsletter, PeoplesStuff.. I particularly lke this piece called "I am who I think I am"

There is another important principle involved in this process: "I am who I think I am"!

Here are some suggestions which should allow you to start gathering some new evidence, or simply start to turn your life around if you're feeling stuck somehow:

Life is easy - and is getting easier every day!
I am always in the right place at the right time!
Everything I touch turns to gold .... and that feels good!
I am surrounded by supportive and loving friends and family!
I am attracting perfect health, wealth, and lifestyle balance into my life every day!
I am constantly creating the perfect surroundings in which I grow and prosper!
I am loved and respected by all who meet me; because I love and respect myself!
Everything begins within a thought, follows with a feeling, and turns into reality!
Every cell in my body is full of peace, love and harmony; which extends into my life!

Remember: Focus on them; say them to yourself as often as possible; start to live them; and they will become so much a part of your life, that they will allow you to start developing new daily habits. In fact, they will lead to developing completely new feelings, and ultimately those new experiences which may have been eluding you for some time!

We are out there gathering evidence every day that our beliefs are right; so, for your own sake, be aware of which type of evidence you are gathering each day! If it's not good - you can change it!

Are you Fast Failing?

That term, fast failing, it has a sort of counterintuitive feel to it. If your failing, why would you want to do it quickly. Then again, that's why new terms and concepts catch on, it is how a new meme makes the rounds.

The term fast fail seems to have worked it's way into management and innovation circles via a circuitous path starting in computing. By making components fail-fast, the overall system becomes more fault tolerant.

In innovation the idea is to follow your nose towards the new users, or those on the bleeding edge, who always like to try new things.

These ideas come from Malcolm Galdwell's book BLINK!

"From what I understand, two guys were out fishing on Friday night," reported Massillon (Ohio) Police Sgt. J.J. DiLoreto.

But "his foot got in the way," DiLoreto said. "He shot himself in the foot" with a 9mm pistol. The unnamed victim may face a misdemeanor charge of illegal firearms discharge. And in all the resulting confusion, "I think the turtle got away." ...The "big one" always does.

It certainly looks like a harrowing experience for the innocent babies as they often require intubation and mechanical ventilation in order to live.

There is reason to believe that the condition is induced by the mothers consuming certain SSRI-antidepressants like Paxil, Lexapro, Prozac, & etc during the pregnancies. Additionally the FDA issued a public health warning about it on July 19, 2006. There is more information about it at PPHNlawyers.com.

Vincent Wright's Wisdom

Vincent Wright runs many dozens of internet forums and they are great place for Vincent to share his wiodm. This gem first was first published on Vincent's http://www.mylinkedinpowerforum.com/

"Have you ever had someone make a very, very good point - one which you could see yourself agreeing with - but you find yourself not receptive to the idea because of the way it's presented to you?

I know that the above is a complex sentence but, the essence of it is this: Say you go to a restaurant and you are given a good looking meal. You get all set to enjoy the meal but you notice that the plate is not clean or that the utensils are dirty - (likely from food left over from an earlier meal). What happens to your attitude towards the meal? ABSOLUTELY! You temporarily lose your appetite and reject the meal, right? (At least I hope you reject it! :-))

I think this good food/dirty plate metaphor is an apt one for some of the negative conversation we sometimes experience in our discussion groups: Someone presents something that makes good logical sense but we reject it because of the way it is presented. The presenter didn't take time to "clean the plate" on which they are serving their great idea.

Like food left over from a previous meal, we can sometimes forget to clean our arguments of residual attitudes left over from former arguments.

And since good meals often end with dessert, I love the idea that the etymology of the word "persuade" suggests that it literally means "through sweetness".

So, if you have something meaty you want us to consider, persuade us by serving us your food for thought in a "sweet manner" - and please use a "clean plate"! :-)"

Halloween is big for business


Nearly 60 percent of US consumers plan to celebrate Halloween in some way, and 11% will include their pets in the fun, as 7.4 million households will dress their pet up for Halloween.

The most popular costume for Fido or Fluffy? Devil ranks No. 1 with 12%, followed by pumpkin (9.2%), witch (4.5%), princess (3.8%) and
angel (3.3%).

This year’s most popular children’s costumes are princess (10.7%) and Spider-Man (4.8%), while adults will likely be donning a witch (16.9%) or pirate costume (3.8%).

According to the National Confectioner’s Association (NCA), 93% of children will be trick-or-treating tonight, and there’s a pretty good chance some candy corn will end up in their bags – more than 35 million pounds of candy corn will be produced in 2007, which is enough to circle the moon nearly 4 times.
