7. Tigers Season Sits Somewhere Between Respectable, Not-Quite-Great -

So, how best to categorize the 2013-2014 season for the Memphis Tigers basketball team?

Great? Not even coach Josh Pastner has settled on that word.

Respectable? It was much more than that. You may be tired of hearing Pastner say it, but it is true the Tigers stayed in the national rankings until the final Associated Press poll right before the NCAA Tournament.

8. Intellectual Property Audits for Companies -

Successful businesses routinely conduct audits of their assets, such as merchandise or financial holdings. Audits are fundamental to making informed business decisions that lead to an efficiently managed business.

Fueled by a demand for the specialized services it provides, Memphis-based consulting firm Caissa Public Strategy has expanded with the opening of a new office in the nation’s capital.

Caissa founder Brian Stephens said the reason for the expansion there isn’t necessarily obvious.

16. 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.

23. Finding Vision for the Future -

A renewed enthusiasm for monetary stimulus has had observable market impact.

33. Twitter's Evan Williams May be Worth $1 Billion After IPO -

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) – The personal fortune of Twitter co-founder Evan Williams probably will take up 10 characters once the online communications company goes public.

Williams, who was Twitter's CEO for two years until Dick Costolo took over in 2010, owns a 12 percent stake that makes him the company's largest shareholder. If Twitter turns out to be worth at least $17.60 per share, the initial public offering will make Williams a billionaire at 41 years old.

43. Drowning in Big Data -

“We have so much data but no answers.” This phrase echoes down the halls of all of the larger clients with whom we meet.

44. Tigers Release 2013-2014 Basketball Schedule -

48. Made in Memphis -

Memphis’ geography is limited to roughly 300 square miles, but its identity stretches beyond the city limits, resonating to the far corners of the globe.

The city’s brand has obvious cornerstones, such as its place in the nation’s cultural topography. But setting aside those no-brainers, like the rock ‘n’ roll innovator whose mansion in Whitehaven still attracts gawkers from around the world, a lot of what makes Memphis’ story is the story of what’s made in Memphis.

49. Memphis Firm Keeps Cities From Fiscal Cliff -

62. Understanding the Importance of a Getaway -

THE TIME TO GET AWAY IS CLOSE. One morning last week. Anderson’s dogs were running, impossibly fast, circling a field of new wheat, impossibly green, and then through the woods and past the ponds, Snuffy bounding just ahead of us and Bow Wow off to our right in the trees. Their eyes were bright and their joy obvious, impossibly happy.

70. Tony and DJ: The City’s Basketball Game-Changers -

The supreme talents – the All-Americans, the All-Stars – can take possessions off and still score their 25 or 30 points a night. They can pick their spots to play defense, which in reality means going for a steal here and there, and then mostly defer on the hard work. You know, staying with their man step-for-step, cleaning the glass – sorry, I don’t do windows – or risking humiliation by contesting potential dunks – sorry, I’m not ending up on somebody’s poster.

71. Aitken Right Choice for Succeeding Cash -

Kriner Cash carried the banner of specific and meaningful education reform far during his tenure.

At times, his leadership style got in the way. It is not a new phenomenon in education or other endeavors where we have brought in highly qualified individuals from other places to hold key public positions.

The time will come – after this season, if not before the Feb. 21 trade deadline – when moving Rudy Gay will be the only sensible thing for the Grizzlies’ new ownership to do.

77. Get More Out of Your Corporate Retreat -

Have you ever asked yourself why you are taking a corporate retreat? Is it because the company has always had one and it is just an event on autopilot? Is it intended to reinforce the company line? What do you as a leader really get out of it? What does everyone else get out of it? If it is designed to be a “morale builder” and a session to “build consensus” you may be wasting your time and money. There is nothing worse for morale than having a lockdown then hotboxing people who work over 50 hour weeks. These people likely feel that they are getting behind on their work treadmill and worse, they resent the time away from home and family.

78. Mobs of Cash -

Next month, an organized mob is planning to descend upon The Booksellers at Laurelwood.

With cash.

Spurred by an affection for locally owned small businesses and carrying out the idea born from a consultant who saw this done in other cities, the burgeoning “Memphis Cash Mob” movement will show up to the East Memphis bookstore Jan. 12 from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m. for its latest show of economic force.

79. Easy to See Why Fans are Doubting Thomas -

His Twitter handle is @AllDayThomas. Yet after the first nine games of this Tigers basketball season, Adonis Thomas is the first to admit his play has not lived up to that reputation.

But he said that the U.S. economy is still improving modestly and business will improve regardless of who wins the presidential election.

82. Fans Behaving Badly? We’ve Seen Worse -

As a sports writer, there are certain obligations. One is to second-guess coaches at every opportunity. Since virtually no coach in the NFL or college football can manage the clock, and some basketball coaches still stubbornly refuse to foul to avoid getting beat by a 3-point shot, that one’s pretty easy.

The story of Holiday Inn could serve as a homegrown business case study of what makes a brand resonate with customers – and what qualities are needed for that brand to endure over time.

87. Link Between Business And Surgery -

It is my understanding that if you want to master a surgical procedure you follow a relatively simple three-step process: you hear about it, you see it, and you do it. In other words, you might listen to someone deliver a lecture on a particular surgical procedure, then you observe a surgeon performing the procedure, and then you personally perform the procedure. It strikes me that this three-step process needs to be used more often in the business world.

88. Dutch Police Investigate Delta Sandwich Needles -
