UVA Progress?

Oops.  UVA is back in the news again.  A year later. (I last reported on the UVA shenanigans in August of last year.) For a few reasons.  It seems that Helen Dragas, while remaining on the board, will not be the Rector comes 30 June.  The first black Rector of the University, George K. Martin, will take her place on 1 July 2013.  Mr. Martin is an attorney with McGuireWoods, one of the most prominent of Virginia Law firms, where he manages the Richmond (and headquarters) office.  While he does practice law (corporate), he has been intimately involved in the administration of the firm, which will hopefully put him in great stead to take the reins of the UVa Board.

FASB. IASB.  Those eight (8) letters are going to cause a lot of us some grief.  The Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB) and the International Accounting Standards Board (IASB) are planning to change the rules, which will make our business profits look very different.

Joseph Letteri, Lawrence Brennan (both were nephrologists practicing at the Nassau County Medical Center), Shelly Fialkoff, and me. Both Drs. Letteri and Brennan were gracious in offering their time and input to a young tyke like me.

The Operation Was A Success; The Patient Died

One of my favorite programs on TV is “Monday Mornings”.  The cast, the creator, the concept.  Because we have always done a post-mortem (I think the military jargon is after-action review) on each project and campaign we have run.   We need to know what worked, what didn’t, what we learned, and what we still need to find out.

A speech to remember

No Gravatar

So, I told you that I attended my son’s graduation from the University of Michigan. (Of course, I did. Wild horses, a hurricane, or even a tornado would not have kept me from it.) And, I had the opportunity to hear one of the best graduation speeches ever. (I’m not inexperienced in this matter; a rough count is that I have heard- nay, endured- some 45 or so of these colloquys.)
