Most of us would say the customer or prospect… But if you really think about it, most of you probably spend more time marketing to your internal customers than you do to the people who are actually paying for your product or service. I’ve been in organizations where the approval process to get even the smallest thing done was outrageous; you present the idea, then the strategy, then the costs, then the tactics, then get legal approval, then do the work, then present the work, then present the strategy again, then make changes because they didn’t like it, then present the changes, then make more changes, then ...
Through this, the band gained its first name, 'The Cutting Edge Band', which was later changed to 'Delirious?' when the band went full time in 1997. Reviewing the 1998 United States release, CCM magazine found that the band had created "a modern hymnody for generations raised on rock 'n 'roll." 1 One major lyrical break from older styles of hymns, however, was the lack of masculine and patriarchal pronouns . 1 Cite error: There are tags on this page, but the references will not show without a {{Reflist}} template or a tag; see the .

GPOs Back Under the Microscope - Health Blog - WSJ
During the health-care overhaul legislative debate, even as pharmaceutical companies and medical device makers were getting hit up by Democrats and the administration for contributions to cost savings, group purchasing organizations stayed below the radar. GPOs are the middlemen for hospitals in buying supplies — needles, pacemakers, patient monitors, etc. They are supposed to save money,� because hospitals band together to get lower prices for equipment. That was the theory. But a long cover story in Washington Monthly magazine says that�s not always the case, and that in fact, �the GPO system may increase some costs to ... market research, surveys and trends


The Permitting Process at the City of North Las Vegas
“There’s no problem with the city of North Las Vegas.” “North Las Vegas isn’t any different than any other municipality when it comes to issuing permits.” “North Las Vegas is the worst in the Valley.” These are some of the comments heard from contractors and builders who were asked about the permitting processes of North Las Vegas and other government agencies that issue construction permits in Southern Nevada. Which statement is true? Which statement is false? It depends on who you talk to. Nearly every person involved in getting a construction permit in ... industry trends, business articles and survey research
The Permitting Process at Clark County
For as long as most Nevadans can remember, the state has been experiencing a building boom like few seen anywhere in the country. Nevada’s mining towns, long accustomed to boom and bust economic cycles, continue to flourish in today’s down economy while their bust cycle has ironically moved to the state’s metropolitan areas. New construction, whether it be in urban, suburban or rural areas, requires certain prerequisites – demand, financing, developers, contractors, suppliers and, very early in the process, building permits from appropriate government agencies. With the current economic downward spiral, ... industry trends, business articles and survey research
MATT GAETZ: Oil crisis needs leadership, not photo-op politics
“Matt, I’m tired of the talk. I’m sick of meetings. Politicians come for photo-ops and nothing changes. BP won’t pay. My business needs help today or ten more people will be laid off next week. I just don’t know what I’m going to do.” Those words of a local businessman have been ringing in my head for days. The economic data are staggering in the wake of the Deepwater Horizon oil rig explosion. Lodging occupancy rates are down roughly 50 percent. Restaurants already have laid off nearly 10 percent of their work force. Property values are declining, along with consumer confidence. We ... market trends, news research and surveys resources
Slow pace of recovery in Haiti not a surprise — unfortunately
Like most newspapers around the country, and even the globe, we hailed the commitment of $5.3 billion in aid for the reconstruction of the impoverished nation of Haiti after the worst earthquake in history on Jan. 12. Thousands died and 1.6 million Haitians were left homeless. But we also warned that the warm feelings for the international donors who pledged would be replaced by harsh criticism if they did not put their money where their mouths are. They haven’t — and thus are deserving of public rebuke. Only 10 percent of the $5.3 billion has been given. To our national shame, the United States has paid only $30 million into ... market trends, news research and surveys resources

Where Did The Saying "Red Tape" Come From? - Yahoo! Answers
Usually red tape refers to an obstacle preventing something from happening that needs to be resolved. Where did "red tape" come from? Legal and official documents have been bound with red tape since the 17th century and continue to be so. The first reference I can find to this practice is the 1696-1715 Maryland Laws: "The Map upon the Backside thereof sealed with his Excellency's Seal at Arms on a Red Cross with Red Tape." We now usually mean fussy or unnecessary bureaucracy when we refer to 'red tape'. The first record I have of it being used in that sense is from The pleader's guide, 1796. ...
