1. Archer-Malmo Makes Another Round of Hires -

Memphis-based marketing communications agency archer-malmo has made another batch of hires.

2. Enduring Connections -

When Patrick Woods and three colleagues decided to launch a social organization to connect young professionals in Memphis, the name they gave it reflected the similarity of its demographic to a particular flow of water that moves beneath the surface, one that’s unwise to ignore.

3. Talking Sex -

ALL OF OUR COLLEGE PRESIDENTS SHOULD GET SEXY. The Tennessee General Assembly has long been afraid of sex.

When I was a UT student in the late sixties, the Tennessee legislature proposed a law making it illegal for anyone under the age of 18 to view nude art. On the humanities complex plaza, stood and still stands a huge statue of Europa and the Bull – both starkers and anatomically and quite dramatically correct. The morning after the news of the proposed law broke, Europa was wearing a huge bra and the bull a jock strap, fashioned from sheets – lots of them – and placed on the statue by enterprising students in the night.

4. Archer-Malmo Launches Digital Lab -

The bright orange sign in the shape of a triangle that hangs in the lobby at archer-malmo has a feature that’s not immediately obvious to visitors.

If someone taps on the sign, the light visible behind it will dim and then flash in quick succession the same number of times the sign was tapped. That feature was added thanks to a few employees of the marketing and communications agency who got together and decided to “hack” the sign – no particular reason, really, just to flex their technical skills.

5. Wilkins Pulls Petition to Challenge Cohen -

Attorney Ricky E. Wilkins has pulled a qualifying petition to run in the August Democratic primary for the 9th Congressional District.

8. Know Your ABCs -

THE ABCs OF PRE-K. If we are to pass the half-cent sales tax increase to fund prekindergarten for every child in Memphis, the newly appointed Memphis Pre-K Commission will need to learn their ABCs or get schooled by the voters again.

9. No. 1 in Blue -

BLUE IS A COOL COLOR. The warm colors are the reds and yellows – daylight, bright edges, clear boundaries, absolute rights and wrongs, the white-hot heat of righteousness and those who glow in it, sunshine on the surface.

10. Health Insurers Fear Young People Will Opt Out -

MIAMI (AP) – Dan Lopez rarely gets sick and hasn't been to a doctor in 10 years, so buying health insurance feels like a waste of money.

11. The Costco Connection -

MEMPHIS IN COSTCO. Have you ever noticed that what appears to be of a reasonable size in Costco grows in volume and dimension with every mile between Costco and home?

Sure, you need a little lime in your gin and tonic, but there are 50 of them in that green net bag you just dragged into the kitchen and squeezed onto the counter next to those 27 avocados. That lobster dip you sampled was terrific, but that tub you brought home would keep all of Bar Harbor happy for the summer. The average Starbucks doesn’t stock as much Caffè Verona as you do now. Clinics are coming to you for antacid pills. If FedExForum runs out of toilet paper, come on over to your garage. That stuffed bear is so big it not only scares your grandbaby, the fact that you bought it scares the hell out of you. You didn’t need to eat that hot dog the size of a fireplace log, but you had to because that dog and a refillable drink for a buck fifty is one of the five best deals in America and the other four don’t count.

12. ConAgra, CHS, Cargill to Form Flour Milling Company -

OMAHA, Neb. (AP) – ConAgra Foods is combining its North American flour milling business with that of a joint venture of Cargill and CHS Inc. to create a new business that will be called Ardent Mills.

13. US Housing Starts Dip but Remain at Solid Pace -

WASHINGTON (AP) – U.S. homebuilders began work at a slower pace in January than in December. But all of the drop occurred in the volatile area of apartment construction, which sank 24 percent. By contrast, the rate of single-family homebuilding rose 0.8 percent.

14. Filling the Voids -

Last year was a banner year for adaptive reuse projects in Midtown and Downtown.

Developers announced plans for the Sears Crosstown building, Overton Square, Hotel Chisca, James Lee House and old United Warehouse in the South Main Historic Arts District. Construction began on The Pyramid, turning it into a 220,000-square-foot mega-Bass Pro Shop Outdoor World, and Memphis in May moved into its new headquarters at 56 S. Front St., a 14,600-square-foot building that’s on the National Register of Historic Places.

15. It’s Personal -

IT’S NOT BUSINESS ANYMORE. IT’S PERSONAL. This is our town, and you’re not welcome here.

So pack a plane with all your meaningless spin, all your lackeys and suck-ups, all your apologists, all your legal but unethical tactics, all your eye popping price gouging, all your cold and calculated manipulation of lives, your own employees’ lives, and a city’s pride and get the hell out. There’s so much of all of that in the massive fuel dump you just dropped on Memphis that I’m sure it’ll take more than one plane to haul it all off and we may never be rid of the stench it’s leaving behind.

16. No More Government Motors: US Selling GM Shares -

DETROIT (AP) – The U.S. government's foray into the car business is slowly coming to an end.

The Treasury Department said Wednesday that it will sell its remaining stake in General Motors in the next year or so, winding down a $50 billion bailout that saved the iconic American car giant but also set off a heated debate about government intervention in private business that even influenced this year's presidential election.

17. Broad Stroke -

When Nicole Phillippe, of Memphis, decided to take a leap of faith and open an art gallery, the first thing she did was break the rules.

“Everyone usually tells you to narrow down to a specific market, but I wanted to reach out to a wide market. I wanted to create a place for everybody,” said Phillippe, owner of Allie Cat Arts at 961 S. Cooper St. “So many people told me it couldn’t be done, but I just said, ‘I’m going to make it work.’”

22. Straighten Up and Fly Right -

NOTE TO DELTA AND THE AIRPORT AUTHORITY: IT’S NOT YOUR AIRPORT. Tom Jones has suggested that Delta is doing to us what hard-core protagonist Debbie did to Dallas.

WASHINGTON (AP) – Driven by high gas prices and an uncertain economy, Americans are turning to trains and buses to get around in greater numbers than ever before.

25. Conspiracy Theory -

WASHINGTON (AP) — Tennessee joined 14 other states along with the U.S. Justice Department in suing Apple Inc. and major book publishers Wednesday, alleging a conspiracy to raise the price of electronic books they said cost consumers more than $100 million in the past two years by adding $2 to $5 to the price of each e-book.

26. Pressure Builds for Civilian Drone Flights at Home -

WASHINGTON (AP) – Heads up: Drones are going mainstream.

NEW YORK (AP) – The last time Mark Stella went to the dentist he didn't need an insurance card. Instead, he pulled out a Groupon.

Stella, a small business owner, canceled his health insurance plan more than three years ago when his premium rose to more than $400 a month. He considered himself healthy and decided that he was wasting money on something that he rarely used.

NEW YORK (AP) – In an unexpected twist, TVs are topping many Christmas shopping lists this year.

Wal-Mart says TVs are among the top gifts people are putting on layaway at its 3,000-plus U.S. stores during the holiday season. The Westinghouse 46-inch LCD HDTV that was on sale for half off at Target for $298 was a top seller during the start to the season last weekend. And Abt Electronics already has sold out of 55-inch Samsung LED TVs that were marked down by half to $1,099.

33. Home Market Being Held Back by Wary First-Timers -

WASHINGTON (AP) — Home prices rose in August in half of major cities measured by a private survey, a sign that prices are stabilizing in some hard-hit portions of the country.

36. Herman Cain's Sudden Surge Powered by 9-9-9 Plan -

ATLANTA (AP) – If there's a policy star in the Republican presidential primary it may be Herman Cain's 9-9-9 tax overhaul plan. It has helped fuel the Georgia businessman's sudden surge in the GOP race. But behind the catchy slogan is a reality: Experts say it will raise taxes on some Americans.

37. Last Borders Shoppers Wistful, Looking for Deals -

NEW YORK (AP) – The scene this weekend at the last of the remaining Borders bookstores to close was more like a memorial service than a funeral. Shoppers reminisced fondly about their beloved bookseller rather than grieve its loss.

NEW URBANISM MAKES GOOD, OLD COMMON SENSE. As Chooch Pickard, executive director of the Memphis Regional Design Center, rolled through his PowerPoint, I was struck by a powerful, hopeful, sense of déjà vu.

39. Coal, Ice And Coca-Cola -

THE POWER OF VISION. Many families have a story about opportunities missed, fortunes lost. My great uncle was in the retail coal and ice business in Memphis. Around 1907, our story goes, a woman owed him about $7,500 – a piece of change then. She couldn’t repay him according to the terms set, so she offered something she owned instead to cover the debt. He turned her down but gave her new terms and she eventually paid off the loan. When asked to justify his decision (and he was asked a lot), he infamously replied, “What she had was a passing fancy, a temporary infatuation no one really needs. People will always need coal and ice.”

40. Retailers Post Strong June Sales -

NEW YORK (AP) – Colossal discounts enticed consumers to shop like it was 1999 last month. But higher prices ahead could cause the party to end soon.

Warm weather and discounts of up to 80 percent on summer merchandise helped retailers deliver the best revenue gains since June 1999 in what's typically the second-biggest shopping month of the year. But pressure on stores to pass along higher costs for everything from clothing and handbags to food has raised concerns that the momentum may not continue heading into the busy back-to-school shopping season.

42. White House Considers Big Boost to Fuel Economy -

WASHINGTON (AP) – The Obama administration is telling American automakers that it would like cars and light trucks to average 56.2 miles per gallon by 2025 – a boost to fuel economy that would save consumers money at the pump and help with global warming but drive up the cost of automobiles.

WASHINGTON (AP) – Fewer people purchased previously occupied homes in April, a troubling sign that the weak housing market remains a drag on the economy.

46. Rising Gas Prices Pushes Wholesale Costs Higher -

WASHINGTON (AP) – A spike in the cost of gasoline pushed wholesale prices higher in March, a trend that could limit consumer spending in the coming months.

47. New-Home Sales Plunged in February to Record Low -

WASHINGTON (AP) – Sales of new homes plunged in February to the slowest pace on records dating back nearly half a century, a dismal sign for an already-weak housing market.

New-home sales fell 16.9 percent last month to a seasonally adjusted annual rate of 250,000 homes, the Commerce Department said Wednesday. It's the third straight monthly decline and far below the 700,000-a-year pace that economists view as healthy.

50. Exploring the Mississippi River’s Cutoffs -

See what you can catch.

When the river determined its own course, before it got its manmade shoulders, before spring disaster and all-year fear made us try to tame it, it went where it wanted and – like the biggest bully in the schoolyard, the meanest drunk in the bar – directed its fury against those who talked back.

57. Home Sales Rise as Unemployment Claims Fall -

WASHINGTON (AP) – Home sales rose sharply last month and claims for jobless benefits fell last week. The two reports Thursday sketched a picture of a modestly improving economy.

58. Wholesale Prices Rise in March as Food Costs Jump -

WASHINGTON (AP) - Wholesale prices rose more than expected last month as food prices surged by the most in 26 years. But excluding food and energy, prices were nearly flat.

60. CRE Market Sweats Tight Times -

From Downtown to the eastern suburbs, from the airport to Millington, the landscape is bleak for commercial real estate brokers.

Everywhere they look, they see signs that the local market has endured and continues to endure its share of black eyes. In the past 12 months, for example, two of the area’s four biggest sales occurred on the Shelby County Courthouse steps.

61. Commercial Real Estate Hits Doldrums -

When it comes to trends, commercial real estate usually lags residential real estate, sometimes by as much as a year. So with the housing market showing its first signs of improvement during the last month or so, the commercial sector needs to prepare itself for a long, bumpy road to recovery.

64. Numbers Show Industrial Real Estate Taking Plenty Of ‘Licks’ -

A healthy industrial real estate market is imperative for Memphis to live up to its longtime moniker of “America’s Distribution Center” or its new one of “America’s Aerotropolis.”

In other words, a viable warehouse sector – which bolsters the city’s ability to store goods before they’re distributed and supports the city’s robust transportation assets – is mission critical no matter how the city’s marketing is phrased.

65. AP Source: GM to Sell Hummer to Chinese Company -

72. SCS Superintendent Search Differs From MCS Approach -

Banks across the U.S. are engaged in a heated competition for deposits as the battered industry tries to shore up its funding sources.

77. Oct. Home Sales Down Almost 23% From Last Year -

The real estate market has been plagued for more than a year by waning consumer confidence, declining home values, tightening credit and rising foreclosures.

78. Homeowners Cling to False Optimism About Own Home -

The housing market may have bust, but many homeowners are still living in a bubble.

Despite dismal housing headlines and reports showing falling prices nationwide, owners in some once-hot areas still believe their home is gaining value or at least holding its own. And by hanging onto too-high expectations, sellers are unwittingly keeping the market from finding a bottom.
