Randy Bernard brings a fresh attitude to the top of IndyCar ...
Freshman Indy Racing League CEO Randy Bernard understands that he’s got a lot to learn. When he was plucked by “The Sisters” for the top position in the Indy Racing League management in January, he didn’t know a whole lot about the IndyCar Series. He had never been to an IndyCar race, and he probably didn’t exactly realize what he was getting himself into. Three months on the job, Bernard has done a remarkable job of making even his most ardent detractors stand up and take notice that his lack of familiarity with the “Wars of Open-Wheel Past” is not necessarily a bad thing and, in fact, may be his greatest asset. I had the ... market research, surveys and trends
Offseason In Review: Florida Marlins: MLB Rumors -
This was a typical Marlins offseason on the surface - no money spent on free agency, no arbitration offers to departing free agents, and a couple of salary dump trades.  Still, the work of president Larry Beinfest and GM Michael Hill warrants a closer look. The Marlins are known for pulling relievers off the scrap heap and getting good performances.  Calero, Donnelly, and Brian Sanches were last year's minor league deal success stories.  Chances are the Fish will squeeze the best out of MacDougal, McClung, Turnbow, and Veras, and they risked nothing.  Lindstrom didn't ... market research, surveys and trends

No John Sterling call necessary. The Yankees did what many clubs feared they might do: Flex their financial muscle in the draft and sign whoever they want, for whatever they want to pay. The Yankees spent more than $7.4 million in bonuses to sign their picks in the first 10 rounds, with even more committed to first-round pick Andrew Brackman in the form of a major league contract. That said, giving so much money to Brackman may not work out. But the Yankees are unique in that they can absorb such mistakes with little consequence. Remember Cuban defector Andy Morales ($4.5 million), or Japanese pitcher Kats Maeda ($1.5 million)? ... industry trends, business articles and survey research

NBA Free Agency: The Best And Worst Signings of the NBA Offseason
The 2010 off-season is the biggest recent memory, with what is possibly the best market of all time, but I believe the best move of the free agent period so far was made by the Oklahoma City Thunder when they agreed to a 5 year 85 million dollar contract extension with rising star Kevin Durant. Durant captured his first scoring title this season averaging just over 30 points a game at the age of 21. Durant has said he likes it in OKC and would like to stay there and the Thunder made it happen, and for cheap too. If they hadn't signed him to this extension they would have risked him leaving for a big market for a max ... market trends, news research and surveys resources

Sharon Shields, a chemist at Livermore’s BioSecurity and Nanosciences Laboratory (BSNL), uses a time-of-flight mass spectrometer to identify the proteins found in blood serum. These proteins are produced in response to the presence of pathogens. UNTIL recently, national security was synonymous with guns, tanks, and planes. Increasingly, however, the notion of security, especially homeland security, demands a broader meaning that includes ways to quickly detect and identify biological pathogens that might be ... technology research, surveys study and trend statistics

How to build a talent management framework in high employee ...
I was brought into a very interesting discussion today while talking about establishing talent management system with a friend who works for a leading multimedia advertising firm. For company like her employer normally have the following common traits in term of people: - High turnover rate. People change their employers every 1~3 years. - Very young workforce, the average age in the entire company is around 30 years old. Even some VP or SVP are 32~33 years old. - It's all about ideas and creativity. The most critical competencies required in this industry are kinda untrainable. I am from manufacturing background. When I ...
