5. Sea Isle Signs -

By the numbers, Sea Isle Elementary has 36 students out of 517 who are hearing-impaired or deaf. Some are as young as 3 years old. Some are fifth-graders who in August will leave the East Memphis campus and their status as “Islanders” for the new frontier of middle school.

8. From the High-Flying to the Practical: CES 2016 in Brief -

12. Last Word: Out With the Old, In With The River -

We end 2015 with an eye on the Mississippi River as the city marks the New Year with three major New Year’s Eve outdoor celebrations – one on Beale Street, another in the newly-awakened Overton Square and yet another in the Broad Avenue Arts District.
Two come with lots of memories of past New Year’s eves – with soon-to-be memories.
Overton Square’s comeback as a theater district has been a big story of the last two years.
But Beale Street at the end of 2015 is an institution that has also seen a lot of change in the last year with the move to a Beale Street Tourism Development Authority at year’s end.
Broad is a different story with a different context. The context is a diversified Memphis whose crowd is likely to be at least slightly more local than the mix in Overton Square and on Beale Street.
It's example could very well show us the path to a New Year's eve with public celebrations from Whitehaven to Frayser.

51. Curiosity Closed the Sale -

Curiosity may have killed the cat – but in sales, curiosity can almost always close the deal.

Questions are a powerful tool in the sales process, but if you’re only using questions to identify your prospect’s needs at the beginning of the sales process, you may be missing key opportunities. If you’re not integrating questions from start to finish, you may not catch possibilities for cross-selling and up-selling – and you might as well be trying to overcome objections blindfolded.

62. Managing an Inherited IRA -

65. Excuses: The Scourge of Fundraising -

How do we stop using excuses as a conversation starter, or icebreaker when starting a meeting?

75. Tigers Baseball Striving to Make NCAA Field -

In late April, the University of Memphis baseball team was ranked No. 24 in the country and projected to be in the NCAA’s 64-team tournament field.

76. Nashville Emerging ‘As a Regional Tech Leader’ -

Two very different startups speak volumes about how much the Nashville venture capital scene has changed over the years and how things are still evolving.
