CLEVELAND, Ohio -- When Jin and Bok Hu made the difficult decision to close their popular Seoul Hot Pot Korean restaurant in April 2012, they didn't know if they would reopen, or if customers would remember them if they did.
Tuesday afternoon, their second day back in business after his hip surgery and a 2 1/2-year hiatus, they realized they needn't have worried.
"My cousin texted me this morning: 'Seoul Hot Pot is open again,' and I drove in from Concord, Lake County," said diner Kevin Rice, polishing off a pan-fried seafood pancake and bubbling tofu stew.

CLEVELAND, Ohio -- Smith Dairy, the century-old Orrville dairy known for its yellow milk jugs, has created a line of creamy, premium Artisa Fine Curd Cottage Cheese that it says will convert people who say they don't like cottage cheese.
"Cottage cheese is higher in protein and lower in sugar than Greek yogurt, it's low-fat and gluten-free, it's a nutrient-dense good snack, but it's very polarizing: People either like cottage cheese or they don't," said Penny Baker, marketing director for Smith Dairy Products. #cottagecheese #Ohio

CLEVELAND, Ohio -- Jack and Suzy Welch, the man Fortune magazine dubbed "Manager of the Century," and the Harvard-educated business journalist who married him, say that creating a workplace culture where workers are both engaged and inspired starts with trusting them enough to tell the truth. #RealLIfeMBA
Business is a sport. It's like any sport. The team that has the best players wins." But if 65 percent of the team isn't engaged, how is it supposed to win? "Getting engagement is critical," Jack Welch said.

CLEVELAND, Ohio -- America's addiction to our mobile devices has not only made us more uncomfortable with silence and solitude, it makes us actually want to talk less, reports Sherry Turkle, an ethnographer who studies the impact of technology on communication. "Our mobile devices are so powerful that they don't just change what we do, they're changing who we are" and how we relate to each other, said Turkle, director of the M.I.T. Initiative on Technology and Self, and author of "The Flight from Conversation."

BAY VILLAGE, Ohio -- Dan Musson and Dan Kubiak turned a lifelong love of creating things into a new business venture called #DANSOAP, an all-natural, biodegradable, environmentally friendly laundry detergent that's kinder to Lake Erie than most national brands. #thisisCLE
"Regular laundry detergents, even those that claim to be 'free and clear,' contain chemicals and compounds that have not only been proven to cause harm to humans, but also the environment," Dan Musson said.

Wouldn't it be great if there was a way to remind yourself of the things you needed to talk to someone about, before you even called them? "Wouldn't it be perfect if, instead of the person's picture popping up when I called, my mental notes could pop up, so while I was talking to him, I could say, 'Oh, by the way?" Michael Knall said. #cinntich #thisisCLE

CLEVELAND, Ohio -- With less than a week left until Christmas, #retailers are offering all kinds of last-minute incentives to woo procrastinating shoppers. From free shipping to expanded in-store pickup to more lenient deadlines to get gifts there on time, stores are determined to maximize sales during their final shopping hours.
"This holiday retail sales season is looking significantly brighter than the previous two years due to plummeting gasoline prices, elevated levels of consumer confidence, improved job prospects, and heavy price discounting by retailers," said IHS Global Insight US Economist Chris Christopher.

CLEVELAND, Ohio -- Retailers' decision to jump-start the holiday season on Nov. 1 got consumers spending early, but also siphoned off sales from #Thanksgiving and #BlackFriday through Cyber Monday. That's why some #CyberMonday discounts have spilled over into "#CyberTuesday" and the rest of this week, to spur sales and shed inventory.
"The holiday season is a marathon, not a sprint," NRF President and CEO Matthew Shay said. From now through Christmas Eve, "every day is going to be Black Friday, and every minute is going to be Cyber Monday."
