Avoiding the Culture Crisis

By Nick Manning, President

On March 14th, 2012 a gentleman named Greg Smith resigned after 12 years with one of the most influential Wall Street firms, Goldman Sachs, and he did it by publishing his resignation letter on the Opinion Pages of the New York Times. His resignation sent the social media sites into a tizzy, and was talked about on news shows and talk radio of all political leanings. To say he burned a bridge is an understatement. Public reaction from Wall Street was seemingly quiet, and I get the feeling the other Wall Street investment firms are relieved it did not happen to them. I’m sure the reasons why Mr. Smith decided to leave his position are multifaceted, however in his resignation letter he blamed the fact that Goldman Sachs’ corporate culture had changed over his 12 year tenure.

Save Some Green by Being Green

By Joel Spangenburg, Quality Control and RGA Auditor

When we wake up in the morning we immediately start to spend money. Most of us do this without much thought and it’s not our fault, it’s just something we do. Can you think of some ways? Yeppers: Lights, water and gas (and probably in that order) are three of the fastest consumptions we can reduce, and in turn, reduce our spending as well.

Have you ever noticed when your car starts acting up you suddenly hear a hundred different car dealership commercials on the radio? Or maybe your air conditioning goes out in the middle of July and you begin to realize just how many HVAC trucks drive through your neighborhood in a day? Another example that gets me all the time: Without fail when hunger strikes, Applebee’s, Chipotle and all their restaurant cohorts begin dancing across my TV and making my stomach growl even louder.

As a practical Midwesterner, I handle most of the outdoor lawn chores at my house. And since spring cleaning in the yard is coming soon, this means it might be time for a tune up on the lawn faucets and hoses. On my honey-do list this year is a check-up on a dripping hose spigot and a repair to a leaky hose.
