Shelby County Commissioners pick up Monday, July 21, where they left off earlier in the month about a way to fund prekindergarten programs.

8. Editorial: Enhanced Riverfront Much Needed for City -

The idea of a city’s riverfront as an ornate front door is a relatively new concept in the evolution of cities as old as ours.

Historically, riverfronts were busy, functional, ever-changing ports not built to dazzle but instead to serve as the engine of commerce in river towns like ours.

9. Riverfront Cornerstone -

Beale Street Landing seems an unlikely choice as a cornerstone, considering its troubled path to completion.

At this point, it’s almost a motto – not on time and over budget, and by a lot on both counts.

10. More 'Headline-Grabbing' Corporate Deals Expected -

LONDON (AP) – More "headline-grabbing" acquisitions are likely over the coming year as businesses take advantage of a period of improving economic growth and cheap financing.

11. Chamber Launches Young Professionals Group -

12. Finding Forever Homes -

It isn’t that there are not compelling animal stories. There are.

13. Linkous Construction Never Wavered in Face of Recession -

18. Cosmic Caffeine: Astronauts Getting Espresso Maker -

CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. (AP) – Talk about a cosmic caffeine jolt. The International Space Station is getting a real Italian espresso machine.

Astronauts of all nationalities – but especially the Italians – have long grumbled about the tepid instant coffee served in pouches and drunk with straws 260 miles above Earth. The pouches and straws aren't going away, but at least the brew will pack some zero-gravity punch.

As the week begins, political leaders of both parties and across several generations will gather in East Tennessee for the funeral of former U.S. Sen. Howard Baker.

20. Landing Zone -

Beale Street Landing was supposed to cost far less than $43 million and be completed much sooner than the decade it took from the design competition.

But the head of the Riverfront Development Corp. overseeing the 6-acre landing and its construction says with the formal two-day opening of the landing starting Friday, June 27, the riverfront project at the foot of Beale Street and on the northern edge of Tom Lee Park should begin to counter critics of how the project has been managed.

Three years ago, you probably had never heard of Kawhi Leonard. He played at San Diego State, the same school from which the Grizzlies selected guard Jamaal Franklin in the second round of the 2013 NBA Draft.

22. Calm Amidst the ‘Storm’ -

The S&P 500 continues to inch ever so closer to the 2,000 mark, while volatility measures remain historically low. Furthermore, there have been 43 consecutive days where the S&P 500 has registered a daily return mark within the -1 percent to +1 percent band.

23. Necessary Disruptions -

Last week, the New Yorker published an article about how Disruptive Innovations have failed and how the theory is bogus. The long piece went into great depth about the emerging Disruption industry of consultants, the Disruption ethos prevalent in Silicon Valley and the many Disruption discussions in boardrooms across the globe. As a local practitioner of innovation methodologies, several people asked me my take on the piece.

MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif. (AP) – Diana Navarro loves to code, and she's not afraid to admit it. But the 18-year-old Rutgers University computer science major knows she's an anomaly: Writing software to run computer programs in 2014 is – more than ever – a man's world.

26. Outlasting Outdated Industries -

One result of technological advances is a change in the way we do business. Sometimes this change results in new jobs, but often, it can also result in job loss.

27. ‘Pop’ at Top of His Game One More Time -

Numbers rarely lie, and in Gregg Popovich’s case they finally piled up in a way too compelling to ignore.

28. Partners Drive Startup Ecosystem -

Building startups is tough work that requires the engagement of money, mentorship and professional support.

Back before there were incubators, accelerators and formal platforms to systematically assist startup companies, there were critical trusted advisers in the community to help guide entrepreneurs as they started up. Those advisers were local bankers, lawyers, marketers, accountants and others where entrepreneurs could turn for support and guidance. While new startup infrastructures have sprung up to provide knowledge, capital and other resources, professionals continue to be the backbone driving entrepreneurial growth.

40. Game Changer -

One educator’s reform is another educator’s wrong move.

Dorsey Hopson doesn’t use the word “reform” as often as he uses the term “game changer.”

But the superintendent of Shelby County Schools has himself become a game changer as the school board that signed him to a three-year contract last September weighs a further extension of his three-year contract that for now runs through September 2016.

52. Discussing Family Finances with the Kids -

Ray’s take: The March 2013 T. Rowe Price Annual Parents, Kids and Money Survey indicates that 73 percent of parents discuss money with their kids. This is good news! It’s an important part of a kid’s education to understand money and finances. Kids may not have to worry about mortgage payments just yet, but learning about money while they’re young can set them up to become financially responsible adults.

53. Save Your Sales Team From Extinction -

Second in a two-part series. The Information Age has created a marketplace built predominantly of connected buyers who have largely determined whether or not to buy from us before they ever make contact with a sales rep.

57. Pera’s Just Following Sports Owner Formula -

Until recently, I figured if I ever won a huge lottery and became a gazillionaire, I would indulge my sports fantasy of owning a horse in the Kentucky Derby.

Workers change jobs more frequently now than ever before. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, employees only stay at a job for a little over four years on average.

As Tennessee Gov. Bill Haslam seeks re-election, he has some challengers in the statewide August Republican primary and he’ll face a Democratic opponent in the November general election.

Just so there is no misunderstanding, let me answer this question first:

If you’re a St. Louis Cardinals fan, you may not believe what you are about to hear from former second baseman Tom Herr who played on three Cardinals World Series teams in the 1980s.

Yes, those included the 1985 club that lost to the Kansas City Royals in the World Series and had Game 6 in Kansas City slip away, in part, because of the blown call at first base by umpire Don Denkinger.

In the NBA, extra time is always available. Well, at least if it’s a playoff series between the Grizzlies and Oklahoma City.

93. Crossroads -

After starting work as a butcher when he was just a teenager, Ron Manis began his career as a truck driver in 1979.

95. Going South -

JACKSON. FULL CIRCLE. Fifteen years ago, I sat across a table from a guy named Tommy Ramey in a place called Nick’s in Jackson, Mississippi.

We both took another swallow, he said that sounded about right, and we shook hands. And ordered another bottle.

96. Grizz Nation Rallies Around Entire Team -

It was a natural enough question, but if you’re a Grizzlies fan you had to love the answer.
