The definition of happiness being truthful is beyond budget. Yet dress of the vision must be the uniform. When the teams are communal and functional the productivity takes its code to the continuous improvement. The ritual of attire the desperation the global edge of the enterprise. It's not earnings anymore! It must be the longterm strategy! Very true! Have a nice day!

Nearly 1 in 5 in #Vermont workers would benefit from a $12 minimum wage, 1 in 4 workers  nationally. New state-by-state report from the Economic Policy Institute #sustainability  
Raising the federal minimum wage to $12 by 2020 would restore its value to a level that ensures full-time work is a means to escape poverty, and would provide tens of millions of America’s lowest-paid workers with a small yet long-overdue improvement in their standard of living.

Is genetically engineered food dangerous? Many people seem to think it is. In the past five years, companies have submitted more than 27,000 products to the Non-GMO Project, which certifies goods that are free of genetically modified organisms. Last year, sales of such products nearly tripled. Whole Foods will soon...

Interesting perspective > ‘Taboos are about what we fear. In one era, it is the wrath of God; in another, hanky-panky; in ours, the defamation of groups.’ #language
From ‘Odsbodikins’ to ‘belly,’ the banned words of our ancestors look as bizarre today as tribal rituals

Introduction
Interests & appropriate circles: #words/writing #sustainability #CSR #foodie #foodsystems #socialgood #smallbusiness #socialmarketing #cycling #Vermont

President/founder of Marketing Partners, where we harness the power of ideas and communications to help our clients close the gap between what is and what could be. Our blog, Change Conversations, provides ideas for making change happen.

Also blog at Wordbit Overflow and am on Twitter as @pheffernanvt. My shared items on Google Reader used to offer a snapshot of what's top of mind lately, but that's no longer possible. I'm testing Digg and Scoop.it as substitutes.

Off hours are spent on words, the outdoors, travel, cycling, and drinking tea, but rarely sleeping. Thanks for visiting.
