Prior to last week, Malene White’s mental health counseling sessions were much the same as those taking place almost everywhere else.

She has spoken with clients about the challenges they faced growing up, the difficulties in their daily lives, and the choices they made that added to their burden.

But trying to help process the torrent of emotions that accompanies a racially motivated mass shooting in their town felt like a crushing burden on White and his clients.

“Once you start counseling and change some things, you see a glimpse of hope,” White said last week. “Then things change so drastically by a negative event. People are worried. ‘What do we do now? What do we think now?’

The most important step, she told them, is to speak honestly with family, friends, colleagues and others, even if you’re not sure what to say.

“What’s scary is when there’s no dialogue,” she said. “My message is to talk, to communicate, to stay close, connected to each other.”

White grew up and still lives on the East Side. She has worked in healthcare for two decades, the last five years as a licensed mental health counselor specializing in trauma and trauma care.

Many of her clients are black, but she serves people of different races, colors and creeds at the Spectrum Health and Human Services Downtown Buffalo counseling center.

White also leads a grief and support group on Monday afternoons at the Buffalo City Mission and has spent part of the past week helping provide free trauma counseling at the Johnnie B. Wiley Resource Center, four blocks from the Tops supermarket where a self-proclaimed racist killed 10 black people on May 14.


The mass shooting in Buffalo was more than a crime.  It was another volley in a public health crisis

“We have a crisis of racism, a crisis of gun violence, but also a crisis of lack of services, including a lack of access to mental health care,” said Dr. Joseph Sellers, who grew up in Buffalo. and is president of the New York State Medical Society.

The shooting shook even his most optimistic clients, who worked hard to change their situation.

“It’s ‘I’m hurt. I’m broke. And I don’t know if anybody’s going to hurt me,” White said. “It’s different than it was a week ago. Now we’re not talking about coping We’re talking about fear. We’re talking about where you can go shopping. We talk about how you can navigate the community. People talk about trying to leave the neighborhood. We’ve backslid a bit. »

Many of White’s clients are poor, so more typical counseling conversations involve how to navigate bus routes on a limited income, continue their education, find and keep a job, and pay for childcare and healthy food. Some have abused alcohol and other drugs that offer only fleeting comfort in their unpredictable lives. Others have been diagnosed with mental illness and need help navigating the healthcare system and continuing to take their medications.

For some, the challenges have been intergenerational.

It’s harder to process new trauma when you’re already carrying a load, White said.

“This heavy, mass slaughter-like murder” challenged many, she said, especially black people, including those who have got by without guidance so far.

“I hear about intrusive thinking. I hear about nightmares. I hear negative comments, I avoid people, places and bad memories. I see a lot of tears. They felt like they were under attack for many, many years because of their ancestry – and now they feel under attack in 2022.”

White spoke with double the number of those who typically attend the bereavement group session at the City Mission.

“Notice that the people I work with in both places are a mixed pool,” she said. “The conversation was, ‘Just acknowledge that the person standing next to you is also in a strange place. Every white person is not here to kill me. It was an isolated incident, a terrible, terrible act by one person. We talked about loving each other and continuing to love each other, and not letting that create the anger, frustration, and division that it was supposed to create.







Malene White

Malene White, a licensed mental health counselor, said getting people to talk openly about the mass shooting in Buffalo two days later at the Buffalo City Mission made everyone involved realize that they did not share their grief alone.


Mark Mulville/Buffalo News


Conversations at the mission, and elsewhere, ended in hugs, handshakes and a stronger desire to move on.

White’s overall message remained the same. Be good to yourself and those around you.

“I always talk about self-care,” she said. “I always talk about the next trip. What can we do? What are the coping skills for dealing with life’s difficulties? We will enter the prevalence of services, trying to manage emotions, knowing that they want to do better.

It meant a lot last week to White, his customers and their neighbors as those in the area, and beyond, supported efforts to provide more food to people who had lost their only full-service supermarket.

It was also important, she said, that the Erie County Department of Mental Health collaborated to provide free, confidential counseling with Spectrum Health, Crisis Services, Endeavor Health Services and BestSelf Behavioral Health.

This support continues from 1-9 p.m. through Friday at the Wiley Center, 1100 Jefferson Ave. ; there’s no paperwork to fill out and there’s also a resource room for kids to get help with. Everyone is welcome. Several people came from outside the neighborhood, said Cherie Messore, spokeswoman for Spectrum Health.

White was also among those who took part in a webinar for business owners on Friday who asked for more advice on how to talk about the mass shooting with employees and customers, and gain their support, if necessary.

The message is familiar in counseling: avoid distractions that make you carry an increasingly heavy load of problems.

“I talk to people about dealing with their feelings and their emotions, not running away from them, having those conversations with family and others,” White said. “If we’re isolated from them, they’ll come into your sleep. You’re not going to want to eat. You’re not going to want to go to work. You will find yourself in a place where you will not be able to cope with life.

Now is the time to prioritize what’s important, she told her clients. Eat healthier, exercise more and listen to soft music. Volunteer to help your community and your country. “Sit a moment longer” often. Rub your feet before going to bed.

If someone can’t talk with a loved one or needs more encouragement, talk to a counselor.

“It’s important to be able to ride the wave, to be able to engage in a safe place for conversation,” she said.

White began to worry last week that anger would reign in her workplace and her community. Relief set in when she heard echoes of what she recommends in counseling coming from church and community leaders, as well as President Biden and the First Lady during their visit to Buffalo. Spontaneous rallies and organized vigils continued to affirm hope that the city and region will see better days.

She knows it won’t be easy, telling of a client who cried so much at the end of her counseling session on Thursday that White handed her several tissues.

“She whispered in my ear and said she was sorry, she felt so guilty and her people were so wrong,” White said. “She asked what she could do. She was a white woman. I just hugged her and said, ‘Do what you’re doing now. Just help me help you. Stay connected.’ ”

Opinions expressed by Entrepreneur the contributors are theirs.

“We have no competitors.”

This is a phrase that I often hear from clients and that always makes me think. It’s technically possible that your brand has carved out such a specific niche – say, a dating app for marine biologists – that you’re literally the only player in that space. The most likely scenario, however, is that you simply haven’t considered all the alternatives to using your product or service.

Mapping this landscape of choice is key to understanding your market and refining your value proposition. I know this because I work in digital marketing, where the competition for attention is always high and only the most polished messages get through. Highlighting your brand attributes to direct competitors is relatively simple, as we will see below. However, standing out from indirect and surrogate competitors is much more difficult.

Marketing against direct competitors

Your brand’s direct competitors offer more or less the same product or service as you, and as such they are quite easy to identify. You’ve probably come across their ads in trade publications. You may even hear customers mention them as alternatives to your brand. And if you’re going to a conference or exhibition, they’re probably setting up booths right next to yours.

You and your direct competitors are all fishing in the same pool of customers and competing in the same marketing spheres (think Google Ads, social ads, email outreach). When trying to persuade a customer to choose your brand over a direct competitor’s, you typically focus on the differences in functionality and quality, but the core appeal remains the same.

Related: 5 Ways to Dominate Your Competition

Marketing against indirect competitors

Indirect competitors are brands targeting the exact same audiences as you, but selling products or services that can be considered substitutes (rather than replacements) for your offerings. Pizza Hut and Domino’s are direct competitors. Pizza Hut and PF Chang’s are indirect competitors. All of these brands are trying to reach the same market – hungry people ready to eat at restaurants – but they offer very different ways to meet this need.

Usually the biggest difference between indirect competitors is price and quality. An extra large double pepperoni pizza from Domino’s will cost a lot less than a family dinner from PF Chang’s. When someone chooses Domino’s, they are indicating that, for at least one night, the full dining experience one gets at PF Chang’s is less important than just getting a hot pie to take away or delivered and be done with she.

To win customers who turn to an indirect competitor, you need to focus on how your product or service provides value beyond a single use and potentially solves problems along the way.

One of the ways to make yourself indispensable to a client is to establish and maintain a trusted partnership. While it’s true that trust grows naturally over time, it has to start somewhere, and having a deep understanding of your competition helps you get off on the right foot with new people who still have no reason to believe. In you.

Let’s say you meet a potential client and he mentions that a competitor has offered him a cheaper quote for the job he wants done. If you’ve done your homework, you understand how your services compare to this competitor. This allows you to present an honest and well-informed argument as to precisely how the service you offer will do it faster or more completely. You don’t have to fall back on cheap sales models or, even worse, throw out promises you may not be able to deliver. Then, if you land the client, they know what to expect, you have confidence in your ability to deliver, and a trusted partnership begins to take shape. And even if you go for it, they’ll probably appreciate your candor and knowledge of the field. Maybe they will come back to you for the next job.

Related: 10 Ways Competition Can Improve Your Business

Marketing against replacement competitors

Replacement Competitors is a broad category that includes… well, basically any choice that doesn’t use your product or service.

On social media, for example, your business content floats suspended in a torrent of posts, a small portion of which comes from your industry peers. You’re trying to grab a potential customer’s attention as they browse through a feed of updates and comments, photos of their friends’ kids, and videos of raccoons stuck in dog doors. You don’t have to just stand out from other stores. You have to distance yourself from all the interests of a client.

Staying aware of all these different elements of competition you face can feel like extra work. You get into the business you work in because it has fundamental appeal, whether it’s the products you sell, the people you deal with, or the money it makes. Don’t have personal social networks, but need to worry about Twitter and TikTok? Are you a mattress manufacturer, but you have to think about how much your customers pay their accountants? It can be overwhelming, all you need to consider to be successful, but of course you don’t need to know everything. You won’t be able to measure every aspect of the competition you face.

But making a concerted effort to do so will pay off. Putting in the work and allocating the resources to trying to understand everything you’re up against is key. Because ultimately you are competing with your own self-indulgence, the lies you tell yourself to make necessary tasks less important. When you’re wiped out at the end of a long week, curiosity can feel like more trouble than it’s worth. “We’ll be fine.” “We have no direct competitors.” Meanwhile, you are falling behind, whether you know it or not.

The only way to overcome competition is to embrace it – to reject your own laziness and insecurity. When I hear clients tell me about their lack of competition, I know it’s probably because they think the presence of competition suggests there’s a problem with their process or execution. This is not true at all! No matter how good the work you do, you will always have plenty of competition. It’s everywhere, and it’s inevitable. Knowing your competitors better is your best chance for success. Anything less is just a wishful thinking.

IS the stock market correction is running out of steam? Last Friday’s rally in stock prices brought welcome relief at the end of a sixth consecutive week of market decline. There is still cause for concern, but the antennae of opposites are beginning to tremble.

The roller coaster continues

Another mad dash for stocks last week saw a dramatic rally on Friday, but that wasn’t enough to prevent the S&P 500 from falling within a hair’s breadth of the traditional definition of a bear market – a 20% decline. The string of weekly declines is now the worst since the 2008 financial crisis.

The reset so far has been largely about falling valuations. US stocks are now trading at around 16.5 times expected earnings. That compares to nearly 23 a year ago. Other markets, such as the UK, are even cheaper, barely double digits as a multiple of earnings.

So, has the correction run its course? Much depends on the ability of revenues to continue to grow. Europe led the way in the latest Q1 reporting season, rising 40% fueled largely by much better-than-expected energy earnings. In the United States, profits are expected to rise another around 11% this year.

What interests investors?

In addition to falling valuations and still rising earnings, a few other contrarian measures turn green this week. Sentiment, as measured by the ratio of investors saying they are bullish or bearish, hasn’t been this low since the financial crisis. Fund flows to funds and ETFs are also negative after two years of inflows. And investors are no longer borrowing to invest like they did in 2020. All of this suggests that things may have gone so badly that they’re starting to look good.

The Wall of Worry

For that to be the case, however, investors will have to navigate an ongoing torrent of worrying economic news. This week started with an 11% drop in Chinese retail sales, bad news for a country looking to move away from export dependence. And here in the UK, the focus will be on inflation, with a new cyclical high of 9% expected as rising energy costs start to take their toll.

What about other assets?

It’s not just about stocks. Bond investor sentiment has also deteriorated over the past week. In particular, corporate bonds have started to reflect investor concerns. The spread between the yield of safe government bonds and those issued by riskier companies has widened sharply.

Meanwhile, cryptocurrencies such as bitcoin have taken another beating. Bitcoin price fell to $25,000 last week before bouncing back to end the week at $30,000. This is still less than half of the recent peak, showing that early hopes that bitcoin could be a useful inflation hedge were far from accurate. Crypto is more like another highly speculative and volatile asset class.

A passenger who was caught traveling without a ticket has been jailed for a violent disturbance that saw him abuse, threaten and grapple with police officers who were forced to put a balaclava over his head.

As fellow passengers watched, Jack Harris fought with officers in High Street station in Swansea for around 20 minutes during which time one of the officers suffered a dislocated shoulder. The defendant repeatedly threatened to kill police, challenged them to a fight and warned them that he was “juicy” and “tasty” after taking steroids. Sending him to jail, a judge said his behavior had all the hallmarks of what was colloquially known as “‘roid rage”.

Swansea Crown Court heard Harris, 29, moved to Swansea after people where he lived discovered he was a sex offender.

Craig Jones, prosecuting, said the incident happened on October 4 last year and began with a ticket check on the 11.48am train from London to Swansea as the service approached the station from Bristol Parkway. He said the train manager approached Harris, who was standing in the vestibule at the end of a carriage, and asked for his ticket. The defendant said he had just come home from work and was “soaked” and his ticket had been destroyed. When asked for identification so that a penalty notice could be issued, he became loud and aggressive, then began following the conductor through the cars. The guard formed the opinion that he was under the influence of substances.

The court heard there had been a change of conductors at Bristol and the platform supervisor was told what was happening. Due to Harris’ behavior a phone call was made to Swansea station to alert them to what was heading their way.

The prosecutor said Harris – who was identifiable by his high-visibility top – was then stopped at the barriers at Swansea station and questioned about his journey and ticket. The accused initially said he left the ticket on the train and began protesting to the police officers present that the train tickets were a civil matter and they had no power. When asked about his previous conduct on the train, Harris gave a false name – that of Sam Jameson – but then proceeded to insult the officers and threatened to throw one on the tracks. The court heard he had been warned about his behavior but again insisted the police had no right to deal with him, and he unleashed a torrent of abuse.

Harris was subdued and taken to the ground, and it was to be the start of a violent 20-minute disturbance in front of shocked passengers in which he threatened to slit an officer’s throat, bite the nose of a officer and to make rude sexual suggestions on the mother of one. During the struggle, he also made fun of an officer’s shoes, repeatedly told police they were abusing their power, and told them they owed him a packet of crisps which he had dropped out. When he started to clear his throat as if to start spitting, a hood was placed over his head.

Mr Jones said as Harris was taken to the waiting police van to be transported to Swansea Central Police Station, he told officers he was ‘juicy’ and ‘tasty’ as he had taken steroids. He then gave an interview largely without comment. Read the story of a father who “used his car as a weapon” and deliberately drove towards a man he believed had abused his daughter.

The court heard that during the struggle at the station, one officer dislocated his shoulder and another suffered from shoulder pain, while one officer’s wristwatch was smashed.

Jack Harris, of Grafog Street, Port Tennant, Swansea, had previously pleaded guilty to affray, breach of public order, criminal damage, resisting a police officer and escaping a train ticket when presented himself in the dock to be condemned.

The court heard he had numerous convictions for violence, including assaulting police, robbery, disturbing public order and having sex with a girl. At the time of the station disruption, he was facing a suspended sentence for breaching notification requirements as a sex offender.

Stephen Rees, for Harris, said it was accepted that a response to the accused’s supervision report raised questions about his client’s attitude – particularly when challenged – and that, of by his own admission, Harris had “the right”. He said the defendant was forced to move house five times after neighbors found out about his history of sex offenses before he moved to Swansea and got work. The attorney said Harris was not drunk or on drugs on the afternoon in question, but said his steroid use may have exacerbated his mood control issues.

Judge Paul Thomas QC said Harris’ conduct at the station had all the hallmarks of what was colloquially known as “‘roid rage'”, and he said the defendant acted in an “aggressive, confrontational , violent and totally unwarranted”. The judge said that, despite what Harris might have thought, the officers had simply done their duty, and he advised him to find out about the powers of the police before deciding to “dispute the draw” with the police again.

With a 20% reduction for his guilty pleas, Harris was sentenced to 10 months in prison comprising 10 months for the fight, and one month each for the public order offence, criminal damage and resisting a officer throughout the race. No separate penalty was imposed for evading a train ticket. The judge also activated six months of the suspended sentence previously imposed for failing to comply with sexual notification requirements to run consecutively to the sentence for the station’s offenses, for an aggregate sentence of 16 months. Harris will serve up to half of the 16 months in prison before being released on license to serve the remainder in the community.

Speaking after the sentencing, a British Transport Police spokeswoman said: ‘The length of this sentence reflects Harris’ threatening and abusive behavior which will not be tolerated on the network under any circumstances. feel concerned about their safety while traveling on the railway, especially someone who is simply doing their job.

Staying relevant in a rapidly changing world

That same New York Times The article suggests that people will get a new job every five years and “probably every one of them will require skills you didn’t learn in college.” This lends even more credence to the growing belief that a person’s educational journey is no longer a structured pipeline – from high school to college graduation to employment.

“Successful professionals demand non-linear learning journeys, with educational content delivered online, in small increments, that meet their specific needs,” said Jeffrey R. Brown, dean of the Gies College of Business. “Professionals today have many paths to achieve desired goals, and each path may require a different set of skills.”

The Gies College of Business is one of the first to combine a world-class education with convenience and affordability – and there’s no one better to help today’s learners stay balanced in our landscape. evolving than a top business school that has become a global leader in online education. . Since launching its online MBA – called iMBA – in 2016, demand for Gies’ online programs has skyrocketed. The College now enrolls nearly 6,000 online learners from more than 90 countries, while maintaining unprecedented retention rates and student satisfaction scores. As a measure of the quality of its programs, the vast majority of Gies learners – 93%, to be exact – said they were very or extremely satisfied with their experience. In addition to full graduate degrees, Gies offers smaller professional degrees, which are also delivered entirely online and are exactly the kind of on-demand, skills-based content that successful professionals need.

“At Gies, we are committed to providing access to life-changing business education – for anyone who wants it and is committed to pursuing it,” said Brooke Elliott, EY Professor and Executive Associate Dean at Gies Business. “We give learners the ability to stack their credits and do their work on their own schedule, wherever they are, allowing them to complete their training without interrupting their careers.”

University of Illinois Brand New Business Credentials

This fall, Gies Business is launching two fully online, credited graduate certificates in Strategic Leadership and Management and Accounting Data Analysis. If you are unfamiliar with this type of offering, this graduate certificate is a transcribed degree, signaling that you have earned credits from one of the best public universities in the world. In the same way that a complete degree signals to the world that you have mastered a wide range of knowledge, these graduate certificates show that you have acquired a specific and sought-after skill that can set you apart from the competition.

Applications are open now and classes begin in August. Each graduate certificate includes 12 credit hours and the certificates are designed to be completed in as little as four months. In these programs, you will learn how to lead, manage and collaborate with teams. You will also learn essential skills such as data-driven analysis and problem-solving to create actionable results. And because Gies specifically designs the curriculum and delivery for the online learner, you’ll be able to take what you learn and apply it immediately on the job. Whether you’re fresh out of college, lost ten years, or already have an MBA, these professional degrees can meet you where you are at in your own educational journey and take you to the next level.

Each graduate certificate program has multiple start dates, and materials are accessible anytime, anywhere. And these aren’t lectures or just asynchronous content that can be consumed at leisure – the certificates include live sessions and rigorous coursework that keep learners engaged, all taught by top faculty at the Gies College of Business.

The certificates themselves are university-level credentials on their own, with credits – a perfect complement for learners who already hold a bachelor’s or master’s degree. Additionally, they can be stacked into a larger degree program, such as Gies’ prestigious Online MBA (iMBA), Online Master of Management (iMSM), or Online Master of Accounting (iMSA). Gies plans to launch six additional certificate programs over the next year in areas such as marketing, innovation, managerial economics, value chain management, and more.

WARNING: Graphical details may be disturbing.

A father and son are accused of cutting off a teenage burglar’s finger before kicking and punching the intruder on the kitchen floor, and assaulting the alleged burglar’s girlfriend after finding the couple in the father’s house.

Hamilton High Court heard that King Country farmer William Bruce Burr was twice victimized by the burglar, who stole Burr’s car from his home in Te Mapara, east of Piopio, several occasions until October 1, 2020.

This time, the 17-year-old burglar took his then-girlfriend – who both have name deletion – to Burr’s on Napinapi Rd in the early hours of the morning.

There, the couple searched Burr’s property in the living room before the girlfriend went to the bedroom where the man was sleeping.

Awoken by her, Burr argued with the girlfriend, Crown prosecutor Rebecca Mann told a Hamilton High Court jury this afternoon where Burr and her son are on trial.

Worried about what was happening to his girlfriend, the burglar went to her aid and hit Burr in the head with a bottle of wine.

At that point, Mann said, emotions were running high and Burr suddenly realized who the burglar was – having already been the victim of his offence.

Burr took his shotgun and “walked the frog” down the hall to the kitchen and ordered them to the ground.

With the pair under control, he called the police, his son Shaun Burr and his neighbors.

He called 111 at 1.54am about what happened, saying he would ‘blow their bloody heads off if they move’, and that he knew the identity of the 17-year-old years.

He then went on to warn that if the police didn’t show up he would “pull the f****** trigger soon”.

Shaun Burr arrived soon after and it was then, according to Mann, that father and son began “demanding retribution”.

The burglar was then “attacked”, although the two intruders posed no threat to anyone, Mann said, as they lay on the ground.

Angry at the audacity of his comeback, father and son unleashed a “torrent of violence”, with the teenager being hit in the head by Shaun Burr with pieces of wood that would soon shatter into pieces.

While this was happening, Burr Snr had pointed his shotgun at the boy.

The young man will testify that it was Burr Jr who punched and kicked him in the head first.

His former girlfriend will testify about how she heard wood breaking and Burr Jr saying “that’s what you get if you want to hurt daddy”.

The youngster was left with lacerations to his head, significant bruising and lying in a pool of blood.

But the violence would continue, the court said.

It was then that the boy was asked to place his right hand flat on the ground. Burr Jr took a kitchen knife and started cutting his little finger.

However, Mann said it was not a straightforward cut – instead “more of a hammering motion” was used.

The teenager couldn’t feel his hand anymore, Mann said. He will testify that Burr Jr was banging on the knife to cut off the finger which was eventually cut off.

The teenager was also said to have been told that his severed finger meant “it will teach you to steal, now people will know you are a thief”.

The beatings then continued, Mann said, with the boy receiving more kicks and punches to the head and body from Burr Jr and Snr.

Testimonies will also be given by neighbors who arrived to hear Burr Snr shout “I’m going to shoot the bastard” and saw the boy lying face down on the kitchen floor.

The neighbor will say he thought the teenager was dead and the couple were giving the intruder a “workover”.

About five minutes later, local police officer Tony Schrafft arrived. He grabbed the gun.

A police officer present would also testify to how Burr Snr pointed at the boy on the ground saying “that’s how you do it, you won’t be f****** doing that again”, before walk and stomp the lower back in full view of the officer.

They would also testify to how Burr Snr had the attitude that this was his home and he could do whatever he wanted.

A St John Ambulance officer would also testify to how Burr Snr protested giving the boy Nurofen for the pain.

The couple deny the charges of injury with intent to cause grievous bodily harm, injury with intent to injure, dismemberment with intent to cause grievous bodily harm and dismemberment with intent to injure.

Burr Snr faces two additional charges of assault and assault on a woman.

“It’s a matter of fear”

Burr Snr’s solicitor, Philip Morgan QC, told the jury all they heard were the two victims’ versions of events.

“There’s more to come,” he said. “You have to listen to evidence, assess people’s credibility and truthfulness, and apply common sense to what you’ve been told.”

He said all his client could have done was protect himself and his son “from the man he considered very, very dangerous indeed” because although the boy was only 17, he “had been a scary thing”.

“It wasn’t about retaliation. It’s about fear.”

Simon Lance, defense attorney for Shaun Burr, said the reality was that Burr Snr was the victim of a “violent home invasion” where he was attacked in his bedroom while he slept.

“[Boy] was armed. He had a knife. He weighed around 140 kg and the danger he posed was a permanent danger.”

The lawsuit would be about self-defense — or Burr Jr.’s defense of his father.

“He was pounding him with a stick”

The boy, now 19, was the first witness called.

His video interview was shown to the jury where he explained how a stick was used to “stick” the butter knife into his finger and help him slice it.

When Mann asked him what he was doing at the Burr house again, the boy replied “Oh, to pick up the car again”.

Showing pictures of the kitchen, he was asked what happened there and replied: “I have a hiding place on the floor”.

The Crown will call 20 witnesses throughout the five-day trial.

A jury of three women and nine men will deliberate on their fate. The trial is overseen by Judge Grant Powell.

• The boy was arrested and found guilty of aggravated burglary for his part in what happened. His girlfriend was taken into care by Youth Aid and attended a family group conference.

Both victims have automatic name removal due to their age at the time of the offence.

A self-proclaimed “visionary” does not always understand the true meaning of partnership.

In a perfect world, there would be truth in advertising.

It would be breathtaking to hear a politician say:

“My statements yesterday regarding voter ignorance on current issues have not been taken out of context. I meant every word I said, down to the last comma, semicolon, and exclamation mark, and I respect them. Many of you don’t even know what a semicolon is, let alone how to use it. Moreover, harnessing this gift of voter ignorance has propelled my political career and improved my electoral viability. The systems are meant for gaming, and I’m enjoying the time my schooling and ambition put in for me. Here in the land where preparation meets opportunity, my eyes have seen the glory. God bless America!”

Or to hear a certain classism laid bare with this straightforward preschool flyer:


“Vanilla Bean Curd Country Daycare is obsessed with our mission to empower little ones to succeed in life, especially as they enroll and grow into bigs with influence. Luckily for you, the aspiring parent of a young Chancer, there’s us. One must start early in the relentless pursuit, cultivation, and maintenance of privilege through an awareness and use of the lowest instincts for survival and mobility. We are unabashedly proud to be the proverbial first cobblestone on this Machiavellian road. Right Daycare spawns Right Preschool spawns Right Kindergarten spawns Right Elementary School spawns Right Prep School spawns Right Ivy League School spawns relationships, notoriety, and money to support multiple pairings, families, and schooling for children from these sources. Repeat the process with new children. (See our rankings.) Get real before you get run over. It’s a competitive world, and relationships matter more than ever. Do them here. Skip the tail. You are with Our Kind. Get the money flowing. What would it be? Winner or loser? A life is coming. With us, your little darlings have ‘high’ and ‘worth’, as in ‘High Net Worth’, etched on their skulls like QR codes. You will thank us with your donations.

It’s not a perfect world. Calendars like the ones shown above remain hidden. For a reason. We are left to our own devices to determine our motives.

So it is with the partnership. The term has become elastic. Seller beware.

He stopped one fine day in a Tesla. (It’s still a man.) The indicative license plate proclaimed M3MYS3LF&1. Sic transit gloria mundi. So was his lack of spatial reasoning: the vanity-clad rolling statement was parked at a 30° angle from parallel. Clothing to match: no ties. No socks. No obvious bleaching of her outfit. Shabby chic. Non-compliance as compliance. Visionaries want to make a statement, and trivia like rules are for little people. So he told us, without prompting or a shred of shame, with that typical sub-continental bluster of those who write code, hit the jackpot once, and thus think they know it all and deserve to be in the elite circles. They want to share their enlightenment. They make their own rules. So, people need to be reminded of their place in the Silicon Valley caste system, to hell with the pretensions of egalitarianism. Be thankful that Greatness has arrived to grant you time with Its Presence. Keep your biases to yourself. Maybe, just maybe, you’ll participate in the IPO.

He had a great idea. (Of course he did). He needed help fine-tuning his process. Things didn’t quite go together. Parts were cracking or breaking prematurely during use and still under warranty. It was embarrassing. Certainly not worthy of a visionary. The nominal data of the design software did not correspond to the actual data of the part. The heatmaps were glowing red, not a good color. His additive manufacturing process was subtracting from his cash flow at an unforeseen rate, and he needed to know why. The VCs frowned and demanded answers. Where did the flaws come from? What was their extent? To get answers to these mysteries, he needed his coins scanned. Colleagues told us. So, he came to park at an off-putting angle in front of our building. He needed help.

It’s us: we are “the help”.

We had a CT scanner. He did not do it. His problem was our solution. Thus, free trade was born. Naturally, he wanted a partnership, but first he had to dazzle.

He waved with warm, insinuating buzzwords, or so he thought. Series A, B, C and D funding rounds. Stanford Pedigree. A board of trustees (thankfully missing some of the same shrewd character judges who recognized Elizabeth Holmes’ potential). Tons of pending orders. Huge upside potential. To infinity. The analogy with the fire hose is correct: overwhelm the prey with details. Do not allow them to raise a doubt or a skeptical question. Never stop talking. Let them bask in the glow. Control the subject and drive the moving train. Cultivate greed and envy.

We attended a condescending PowerPoint on his future iconic company and its revolutionary products, designed to speed up the flow of fluids downhill. (Compared to what?) He is looking for reliable and long-lasting partners who can help him improve his product and bring it to market more quickly. (This stuff still flows.) Are we ambitious, like-minded, excited to join?

What does “join” mean? Does it come with a number assigned to it, with multiple zeros at the end?

It may be a function of age, growing irascibility, and a heightened awareness of his limited time on the planet, but these presentations, in their faux boosterism, blend together. All show. They are smooth. Slick like in B*O*R*I*N*G. Enduring them means you won’t get back the hours spent listening to them. On slide 42, we want to stand up and shout, “What do you want? A common tactic is to flood the recipient with a staggering torrent of information, hoping that it will make the prey foolish, or at least more flexible, when the negotiations begin.

5 see figure 1

Beware of the tech “visionary” inflating your “partnership”.

That’s why he sees us as “the helper”.

This is often a revealing moment in the world of test engineering and failure analysis. The pattern of customer responses to details betrays technical ignorance. As in “We were hoping you could design a test plan for us” or “We weren’t sure which x-ray system approach best suited our needs. We were hoping you could draft an inspection strategy that we would use for future SOWs. »

You know, the kind good enough to go anywhere to any competitor to get a cheaper quote, otherwise known as Free Engineering. Often, like a good litigator, the client knows the answer to his question when he asks it. It only fishes out commitment. How far will it open? What will a partnership consist of?

But I digress. Slide 42 was the midpoint. The financial pitch had not yet come.

Often, we attempt to disarm suspicious or scheming customers with brutal honesty. For many customers, it’s an invigorating break from their daily lives to hear us tell them that we have no experience with their business and no idea what a good part or system means to us. But we are ready to learn. We are circuit board people who operate a large CT scan machine. Inevitably, engineers find it advantageous to make requests to digitize items that are not printed circuit boards. Among these are parts made by additive manufacturing, some with exotic materials of varying thicknesses and densities. Some will admit x-rays; some won’t.

This is where honesty comes in. If it is an unknown application, manufacturing technique, material, composite or coating, we sometimes admit to the customer that it is new (to us). We are ready to learn, and for that we make a deal. We offer to attempt some test images to see if we can capture the view the client wants, which is often vague due to a lack of a statement of work or both feigned and real technical ignorance – or the two ! (See above.) These test images are usually offered for free, as long as the customer isn’t a jerk. If we are successful with these images, great. We can then discuss a mutually acceptable program and determine the cost together with the project engineers. If we don’t, then, as the saying goes, no harm, no fault. We tried, and it cost the customer nothing. No risk for them. To a next project.

Historically, this approach has worked well. This works great with engineers from large companies who often have labs with our own capabilities and more, but lack the speed, flexibility and responsiveness we offer. A two-day turnaround is often a compelling alternative to the six or eight-week turnaround using internal company resources, particularly if you don’t need a glossy report and rely on images to tell the story, especially in time-wasting situations. The emergency economy sells.

Despite the ease of use, this is a business proposition. The operating assumption remains that if we are successful – however success is agreed and defined – the customer will pay. Free images are a means to an end, namely a successful labor inspection program, the terms of which are defined as we go along. It’s heard. For the most part, this would seem obvious and would not require an explanation.

Except for the visionary with the parking problem.

When I tell him that he will have to pay a sum for our services, he reacts with the facial features of someone who ingested something unpleasant, probably on his mother’s orders, bringing up disreputable childhood memories of traditional medicine. Thus infused, he speaks with indignation of the impending betrayal of the goodwill upon which our partnership rests.

Built on? We only met an hour ago.
