Q: Okay. If you want to start, you can make us the case, once again, why the Convention Center expansion is so essential to the future of San Diego or is it?TERZI: That’s a… it’s a leading question, but… yeah, I can tell you that we’ve been making the case over a lot of years, and the case probably is never stronger than it is today. When you look at the Convention Center and the capacity of the Convention Center and the demand for the Convention Center and the economic value of conventions they… they’re all increasing in spite of what some people might say in the industry that conventions are dying, convention centers are sitting there empty.

Garland April 11, 2019 Susan Covell Alpert was crushed by grief when her 71-year-old husband, Larry, died of leukemia in 2008. Adding to her misery, a tidal wave of financial decisions and tasks demanded the new widow’s attention at a time when she could barely think straight. Like many couples, Susan and Larry, who were married for 46 years, had divided the financial chores. Larry handled the investments, and Susan paid some bills. Though Ms. Alpert owned a business arranging travel incentives for large corporations, she was not prepared to manage the household’s financial affairs. “I knew every stock, and I knew where everything was,” said Ms. Alpert, 78. “But I didn’t know what … [Read more...] about You’re a Widow.

The crisis over its 737 Max jet could be even harder to manage, given the incalculable reputational risk after two fatal crashes. The short-term costs such as a software fix to the plane are likely manageable for Boeing, but the bigger financial unknown is whether airlines lose confidence in the Max, the company’s best-selling jet. Some 4,600 planes are on order, accounting for around $550 billion in future revenue. Since the second crash, in Ethiopia on Sunday, shares of Boeing have dropped nearly 11 percent. “Reputationally and financially, this is … [Read more...] about Boeing Works to Manage a Crisis With Unknown Costs

Kristen Jonet knew about Marie Kondo, whose advice book for tidying homes became a bestseller five years ago, but didn't pay attention to her ideas until seeing her new Netflix show. Jonet and her husband watched all eight episodes, then started cleaning their Minneapolis home and have since made multiple trips to the Cake Plus-Size Resale shop and to a Goodwill store with belongings they no longer need. "We started with clothes, then we bought drawer organizers for the kitchen. We're still waiting on the garage until it warms up," Jonet said. "My husband and I call it the Marie Kondo-ing of our lives." Around the Twin Cities, the post-holiday winter clean-out turned into a blowout this year. And owners and employees at shops that deal in used goods and consignments think Kondo's show is the reason why. "Last January was painfully slow for my business, but this January is literally double what it was last year," said Cat Polivoda, owner of Cake Plus-Size Resale in Minneapolis.
