Ray Considine, local resident and author of The Great Brain Robbery and WAYMISH (Why Are You Making It So Hard?For Me To Give You My Money), recently spoke at La Cañada High School's Business Institute, an after-school enrichment program run under the umbrella of the Institutes for the 21st Century. Considine spoke about ways multinational businesses have succeeded by figuring out what it was they could bring to the table their competitors couldn't. His speech taught students to listen carefully, learn from business history and to think outside the box. He regaled students with anecdotes from his own life as a soldier, as a student at Harvard and from decades as a businessman.

[Re: Piece of Mind, Dec. 8] I just read Carol Cormaci's excellent article about the frustration with SCE she felt last week during the power outage, and all I can say is that she is expressing my thoughts exactly. Not only was it challenging going without both heat and light for three very chilly evenings - and many others have gone longer than that - but the inability to get any information at all from SCE just added to the stress we were all experiencing. While I appreciate having my power back when a lot of homes apparently still do not, you are quite right in suggesting that SCE needs to take preventive measures before another disaster strikes and greatly improve its communication with customers in dire need.

Have you ever tried to e-mail someone and had the recipient claim they never got your deathless missive? Have you ever sent an e-mail only to receive an bounce back notice that there was a fatal flaw in the address? Or that the address was rejected? Well, I have a solution to all our problems in this regard — get ready here: an army of operators for the Internet! Whoa! Hold your scepticism. Imagine Lily Tomlin look-alikes. Just kidding. Imagine a job, open only to women, women of a “certain age,” as the French say. An army of these women ready to tell you what you did wrong, how to do it right and reassure you, “It’s no trouble at all Dearie, that’s what we’re here for. I’ll connect you now.” Further imagine these women all being able to work from home (energy, traffic and pollution savers)

Do you remember your first job? Mine was behind the costume jewelry counter smack in the center of Bullock?s department store on South Lake in Pasadena. My boss was Eileen Hack. I was 18, perhaps a little old for a first job aside from baby-sitting, but my parents had allowed me to put off seeking employment because from the age of 12 I was quite active in Job?s Daughters, Bethel #226, and that organization took up a lot of my extracurricular time. Mrs. Hack called me at home one summer day, completely out of the blue, and offered me the part-time Bullock?
