DeltaARTS had its beginnings in 1972, in the home of founder of Bobbi Dodge.

Schoettle Arts Education Center at 301 S. Rhodes St., will be getting technology upgrades through a capacity-building grant from the Community Foundation of Greater Memphis.

11. Finding That Potential Within -

Author William Purkey wrote that, “Human potential, though not always apparent, is there waiting to be discovered and invited forth.”

When it comes to the hiring process, the wisdom of those words frames my interviews with potential employees. I know what they have done. I read the resumes. I did some background checking. I talked to former employers. I read the letters of recommendation. I learned of their experiences, their expertise, their past. So, my interviews always focus on what they could do next, what is their potential.

15. Retail Workers Feel Disruption From Shifting Shopper Habits -

NEW YORK (AP) – With new options and conveniences, there's never been a better time for shoppers. As for workers ... well, not always.

The retail industry is being radically reshaped by technology, and nobody feels that disruption more starkly than 16 million American shelf stockers, salespeople, cashiers and others.

Maybe you’ve lost some of that enthusiasm, that passion, and long to recapture that magic that once made you bound out of bed in the morning excited about what the day would hold. Maybe what you really need is a ride on the Polar Express.

The French philosopher and Jesuit priest Teilhard de Chardin once said, “The future belongs to those who give the next generation reason for hope.” While I agree it’s a responsibility we all share to provide the inspiration and reasons to hope to those in succeeding generations, after decades educating generations of young people, I am ever mindful that often it is they who inspire and give us hope. My hope for the future comes from them. They are laying the foundation now.
