Five Ways to Advance Your Small Business Using Business Intelligence

Written by Saint Joseph's University on Monday, 13 February 2012 17:50.

If you don’t know everything you would like to know about how to grow your small business — who are your best customers, what is your most profitable product or service, what’s the best location for your business — you need business intelligence (BI). “The businesses that aren’t obtaining this kind of information are operating below the curve,” says BI researcher Ginny Miori, Ph.D. “Business intelligence provides small businesses with tools to standardize data, reduce costs and identify new opportunities to improve efficiency.” And the good news, according to Miori, is that business intelligence doesn’t have to be expensive to be effective.

Written by Featured Organization on Monday, 06 February 2012 18:01.

Programs that support parents during their child’s early years hold promise for obesity prevention, according to a new study in the online February 6 issue of Pediatrics.
Today, one out of five American children is obese. Young children who are overweight are five times more likely than their peers of normal weight to be obese by adolescence. Obese children and adolescents, especially low-income and minority youth, are at increased risk for a range of medical, social and academic problems.

Interview: Entrepreneur and CEO at 24, Lindsay Phillips

Written by Felicia C. Sullivan on Monday, 06 February 2012 17:45.

The past two years have probably been the most tenuous this generation has known. For me, the recession of the early 1990s is a distant, hazy memory, but the time in which we live now is clear in its uncertainty. People are out of work or in fear of losing their income; they cling to jobs they don't love, corporations they don't respect, because they have real, pragmatic concerns -- mortgage and car payments, unpaid student loans, and children to support -- which makes the daily struggle to maintain shelter and keep their families fed hardly poetic.

Racial Segregation Continues, and Even Intensifies

Written by Richard Rothstein on Friday, 03 February 2012 20:09.

education-GDN-greater-diversity-news"Manhattan Institute report heralding the 'end' of segregation uses a measure that masks important demographic and economic trends." In a study released this week, two Manhattan Institute researchers heralded the “end of the segregated century.” Harvard professor Edward Glaeser and Duke professor Jacob Vigdor showed that African American segregation levels have now declined to their lowest point since 1920, just after the beginning of the “Great Migration” of rural sharecroppers from the South to Northern industrial metropolitan regions.

DURHAM, N.C. -- A significant body of research has shown that white female leaders are viewed negatively when they display assertiveness, dominance or anger. But do black female leaders suffer the same consequences for similar behavior?

Unemployment Rises For Blacks As It Falls For Everyone Else

Written by Featured Organization on Tuesday, 24 January 2012 15:39.

Washington, DC -- A burst of hiring in December pushed the unemployment rate to its lowest level in nearly three years, giving the economy a boost at the end of 2011. The Labor Department said Friday that employers added a net 200,000 jobs last month and the unemployment rate fell to 8.5 percent, the lowest since February 2009. The rate has dropped for four straight months. But black unemployment rose again from 15.5 to 15.8 percent overall and from 39.6 to 42.1 among African-American teens.
