Neil Rackham is a name many of you will recognize: the Professor of Professional Selling. He didn’t just write the book, he wrote three books that made NYTimes Best Sellers. Most famously the author of SPIN Selling — a book that still ranks at 2800 on Amazon twenty-two years after publication—Neil continues to travel the world and consult with Huthwaite , the organization that has the rights to SPIN Selling. SPIN was a revolution in the approach to sales, and still rings fresh today. Massively researched, it introduced the key notions of consultative selling, and of inquisitive interactions. He’s ...
of the asset or liability, or for similar assets and liabilities, or based on another objectively assessed "fair" value. Fair value accounting has been a part of US Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (GAAP) since the early 1990s, and has been used increasingly since then. Mark-to-market accounting can make values on the balance sheet change frequently, as market conditions change. In contrast, book value, based on the original cost/price of an asset or liability, is more stable but can become outdated and inaccurate. Mark-to-market accounting can also become inaccurate if market prices deviate from the ...
Where will bookstores be five years from now? – The Shatzkin Files
Upton Sinclair famously said that “it is difficult to get a man to understand something when his salary depends upon his not understanding it.” I keep putting facts about publishing’s commercial realities that I think most of the smart people running things accept together with forecasts for the future that I think most of the smart people running things accept and coming up with a view of where we’ll be sometime pretty soon that I find very few people will accept. We have definitely passed what Michael Cader has dubbed “peak bookstores” in the US. Shelf space for books is probably dropping ... market research, surveys and trends
Zuffa Takes Mixed Martial Arts, UFC Lobbying to Melbourne ...
THE Ultimate Fighting Championship will use Geelong star George Sotiropoulos and the lure of a $15 million tourist injection to convince the Victorian government to allow cage-fighting into Melbourne, after the sport was again rejected by the state.   ... The UFC's billionaire co-owner, Lorenzo Fertitta, told the Herald it would not be asking its target audience of 18-40-year-old males to vote against politicians who oppose them. ''Certainly it disappoints me, but we look at it as another challenge and we think it's a fantastic market, I think it's just a matter of time and educating the ... market research, surveys and trends


Get Healthy…Or Else, Health Insurance Article - Inc. Article
Employers are getting a lot more serious about their wellness programs. But can you tell employees they're not allowed to smoke--even at home? It was a sight that drove Jeff Bedard crazy nearly every time he pulled up to his office in Johnson City , Tennessee : a half-dozen employees, huddled outside the plant where they manufactured over-the-counter and prescription skin-care products--some of them designed to prevent skin cancer--puffing on cigarettes. The scene invariably got Bedard, CEO of Crown Laboratories, thinking about his health care bill, which had risen 30 percent a year for the past three years. What's the ... industry trends, business articles and survey research
Nokia's Restructuring: Nobody Loves A Value-Chain Hog -- Seeking Alpha
today, telling the world that in 27 weeks the company will significantly reorganize itself. Ostensibly, the reorganization is to focus on "future growth opportunities around converging Internet and telephony services." If that sounds pretty innocuous, you can be assured that this is intentional. Using buzzwords like "convergence" and "Internet," and even aping Apple ( AAPL ) and Motorola ( MOT ) by talking about "rich, mobile experiences," Nokia appears to be taking a logical step in its evolution. I applaud Nokia's efforts to change with the times. But as I read between the lines in the industry trends, business articles and survey research
Missing the Point: Lessons from The Big Short
raises questions about the validity of the ideas underpinning the financial regulation legislation Congress is now considering. Key points in this Outlook : The Big Short shows that Wall Street firms were as slow as most others in recognizing the dangers of subprime mortgages and mortgage-backed securities (MBS) based on these risky loans. Although the financial crisis narrative that drove the new bill posits that Wall Street firms knew the MBS they were selling were likely to default, the Lewis story shows that Wall Street resisted opportunities to bet against these securities, or even to hedge the MBS and collateralized debt ... market trends, news research and surveys resources
ICKLER: Third Start For KBM At Iowa Speedway
During the primary season of a Presidential election, the state of Iowa is known as the place where candidates begin the long and grueling campaign toward a possible spot in the White House. A good showing in the Iowa Caucus can propel a candidate to success in other primaries or caucuses in other states and ultimately help him or her win the party nomination for the general election. There will be no campaigning in the Hawkeye State, though, just plenty of racing as the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series heads to Iowa Speedway in Newton for Sunday's Lucas Oil 200 presented by SPEED on Mediacom. And, like election season, ... market trends, news research and surveys resources

Would you buy Used 2000 Jeep Grand Cherokee 2WD Limited w/92252 ...
As is universally true, virtually anything can be a reasonable purchase... at the right price and under the right terms. Unfortunately, this wouldn't be one of those. Not only is the price excessively high for a vehicle of its age and use (presuming it's otherwise in sound condition with no abnormal wear or unexpected mechanical failings on its horizon), but it happens to be the absolute worst time to buy a used vehicle in terms of relative valuation (they've never been more expensive), and this happens to be the lowest trim level version of a vehicle made by one of the least highly-regarded ...
Donating LPs | Ask MetaFilter
I want to get rid of a bunch (hundreds) of LPs, most of which are not worth anything to a store (nobody buys used classical LPs, apparently). I hate to just throw them out. Does anybody know of institutions that would be likely to accept donations of LPs? (Extra points if you know of a specific institution near Peekskill, NY... and if you live around here and think you might want some, let me know -- there's lots of classical and pre-1985 rock.) I wouldn't be surprised if the nearest college library was be interested in the classical ones, at least. If the libraries near you do not want them and they are generally ...
