17. Bookends of Retirement Planning -

Ray’s Take: Planning for your financial independence can seem overwhelming with a minefield of moving parts. Achieving the dream of a secure, comfortable retirement is much easier when you know the significant numbers involved.

18. Fix This Ticket -

HARD MADE HARDER, THAT’S THE TICKET. Growing up, I felt deprived because I occasionally had to ride the bus. In college, I felt deprived because I didn’t have a car. When I got married, I felt deprived because we had only one.

19. Owokoniran Focuses on Quality for Medtronic Patients -

Sometimes, talking about the weather isn’t boring at all. Sometimes what a person says about the weather helps explain his life story.

When Faheed Owokoniran stepped off the plane in Memphis in late 2015 for a job interview with Medtronic, he felt an immediate sense of relief. Owokoniran, now a senior sourcing engineer at medical-equipment powerhouse Medtronic, moved here from Mankato, Minnesota, land of ever-piling snow and 40-below temperatures. But before his years in Mankato – 2008 to 2016 – Owokoniran called Lagos, Nigeria, home.

21. Succop One of Best-Ever Pickups for Titans -

The art of kicking a football is often taken for granted.

It’s a little bit like driving in that good driving is rarely noticed, unless maybe it’s done by NASCAR drivers. Bad driving always brings unwanted attention.

22. Jones’ Blind Spot: Even 5-Stars Need Coaching -

When he was hired as Tennessee’s football coach in December 2012, Butch Jones used the term “infallible” to describe the system he was bringing to Knoxville.

Even if we give Jones the benefit of the doubt on the system he has attempted to install at UT, it’s clear that the head coach is far from infallible. A 3-3 record in Year 5 – with all three losses to SEC East competition, no less – is reflective of a coach who isn’t getting the job done.

23. Grizz Pay for Parsons And Fans Pay for Right to Boo Him -

What is your definition of “tasteless?” Is it Grizzlies fans booing $94 million man Chandler Parsons on opening night, frustrated when he wouldn’t shoot open jumpers and when he could only make 1-of-5 free throws? All, by the way, when they were wildly cheering and giving standing ovations to former Grizzly and still adored Grindfather Tony Allen, the guy the organization let walk and sign for the veteran’s minimum with New Orleans?

24. Last Word: T.A. Talks Memphis, EDGE Debate and Politics, Lots of Politics -

Grizz season opener at the Forum Wednesday is a win over NOLA 103 – 91. And Tony Allen’s Grizz jersey is retired. The day before, Allen wrote a piece for The Players’ Tribune on the Memphis experience and it is just about the best thing that will happen to you all day. He just walks right off the court and into the soul of this place.

25. Ultra-Personal Therapy: Gene Tumor Boards Guide Cancer Care -

27. IRS Still Enforcing Obama-Era Insurance Mandate -

WASHINGTON (AP) – Contrary to widespread perceptions, the IRS still appears to be enforcing the unpopular Obama-era requirement that most people carry health insurance or risk a fine.

The agency says on its website that it will automatically reject electronic returns for tax year 2017 that don't specify if the taxpayer had health insurance. That insurance requirement, known as the individual mandate, is the top target of so-far fruitless efforts by Republicans to repeal the Affordable Care Act.

36. Roster Moves Show Grizzlies Know They Can’t Put Tomorrow Ahead of Today -

From the time training camp opened this year, forward Jarell Martin was considered likely to be left on the outside looking in when the Grizzlies made their final roster cuts.

And because Davis was just 20 and considered raw but with much potential, Martin would lose out.

57. AFC South Membership Only Thing Saving Titans -

Right now, the best thing that can be said about the Tennessee Titans is they play in the AFC South, where someone’s mediocrity will be rewarded with a playoff berth come Dec. 31.

“THREE BUCKS A DAY, ALL IN.” My friend Jay Martin, founder and chairman of Juice Plus+, is impatient with systems for systems’ sake, with bureaucracies based on bureaucracies, with the tried and true default of “we’ve always done it that way.” If he sees a problem and sees no solution or a solution as problematic as the problem, he has a habit of building one himself and taking it out for a spin.

You put so much time and energy into getting a prospect to agree to a meeting, preparing for that meeting, pitching your services and gaining agreement from the prospect to consider buying.
