A big weekend to avoid the interstate with a rare closing of I-240 between the 385 split and the I-40 split and Poplar over I-240 also closed in both directions. This kicks in Friday evening and runs up to Monday morning’s rush hour as TDOT crews work to replace four bridges in East Memphis using a relatively new process in which parts of the bridges are assembled in advance and then moved into place. The bridges are both Poplar bridges, the Park Avenue bridge and the Norfolk Southern rail bridge. And this will happen all over again in about a week’s time using the same schedule, weather permitting. Weekenders on the interstate already have some experience with a milder version of this with the interstate projects on the south leg

20. Money Left Unclaimed in Dormant Accounts -

Ray’s Take: It’s crazy to think that there are billons of hard-earned dollars left behind or forgotten about in dormant accounts all across the world.

We will know the name of the United Soccer League Memphis team Sept. 1 as well as get a look at its logo.

33. What Got You Here Won’t Get You There -

Do you ever feel like you’re struggling to take your career to the next level? If so, you’re not alone. Many of the job seekers I speak to each day are struggling with similar feelings. They have not received the achievements they expected to get by now. Perhaps they’re coming up on an important birthday, such as 30 or 40 or 50. They haven’t received the awards they would have hoped, or the plum promotion they were counting on. They’re making less money than they had planned for.

38. Take a Break from Social Media -

A lot of professionals I know relieve stress with a few minutes on Facebook after they finish a phase of a project or need a break from their tasks.

Welcome to facebook.com, where you can bliss out on cute kitten photos, catch up with an old friend, find a novel product, or play defense from aggressive people who pounce on your character to make a point. It’s weird. On one hand you get connection; on the other you get discord.

50. Last Word: Opening Day at the Polls, Court Square Sighting and Different Moonlight -

For some candidates summer heat is a campaign tradition that they thrive on. Governor Ned McWherter was one of those candidates. But for most of those running for political office in an election year, it amps up the grueling pace immeasurably, especially the pace of a statewide campaign in a state whose northeastern most point is closer to Canada than it is to Memphis. That is the atmospheric setting for Friday’s first day of the early voting period. And a look at the past turnout for this election cycle shows the statewide primaries on the ballot will likely tell a good part of the story.

51. Treasury Bonds, Savings Bonds are Gifts That Keep on Giving -

Ray’s Take: U.S. savings bonds were once considered the ugly duckling of personal investments. It seemed the only time people bought them was when they were feeling super patriotic or when you couldn’t think of a better gift to give someone. Growing up, I remember them being a popular gift for newborns – the thought being that as the baby grows so does the money.

52. Shared Steps -

CONSIDERING SHOES: We’re in Florence – the one in Italy – and I’m on my own. The rest of the family has gone one way, and I’ve gone another – a fairly normal occurrence on trips at the time of day when I’m looking for an interesting place to have a drink and Nora is looking for one more interesting museum/garden/church to wander through.

53. Preds Pay High Price For ‘Win-Now’ Mindset -

By the time the Predators made their first selection of the 2018 NHL Entry Draft last month, 110 prospects had been chosen by rival teams.

54. Leslie Finch’s Desire to Unite People Leads to Sports Career -

Growing up playing sports didn’t necessarily mean Leslie Finch, Partnership Development Manager for the Memphis Hustle and Grizz Gaming, dreamed of a career in sports stadiums and arenas.

Software maker CA is jumping after chipmaker Broadcom agreed to buy it for $18.9 billion.

60. Last Word: No Fifth, The Cordova Triangle and Cheese Festival in South Main -

I am not going to count this as a fifth early voting plan because whether Calvary Episcopal Church would be available for the last two Saturdays of early voting was still up in the air Tuesday. And Wednesday the word was final on Calvary which seems fitting in all things church. The result is what I will optimistically call the final version of early voting sites and their hours and days is a slate of 27 sites that is far from uniform in hours. Early voting begins Friday at five of the 27 sites.

61. Trump Claims Germany 'Controlled' by Russia, Merkel Differs -

BRUSSELS (AP) — President Donald Trump barreled into a NATO summit Wednesday with claims that a natural gas pipeline deal has left Germany "totally controlled" and "captive to Russia" as he lobbed fresh complaints about allies' "delinquent" defense spending during the opening of what was expected to be a fraught two-day meeting.

65. Last Word: Another Twist in Court, Harris-Lenoir at NCRM and Fairgrounds Specifics -

One more twist in the early voting schedule that kicks off Friday. It came in the second day of hearings Tuesday in Chancery Court as Chancellor JoeDae Jenkins was preparing to sign the court order from Monday night’s hearing.

70. Glassdoor Announces 2018 Top CEOs -

It’s often said that employees don’t quit jobs. They quit bosses. Can you relate? If you’ve ever left a job, there’s a good chance you might agree with this idea.

If you’re looking for a new job, one of the first things to consider is the management you’ll be working for. I often believe that finding the right environment is just as important (if not more so) than finding the perfect title.

I have a question. I really do. Why have there been so few formal studies on curiosity and its immense power to create value in the for-profit and non-profit sectors?

There’s a lot to consider. You can’t think of everything, but you can build future thinking into the life of your organization.
