“It is a place that robs a person of humanity. The depression of the place hits you in the face. It is the most miserable place that you can imagine. If you want to punish someone, put them in there and forget about them.”

he final “victim” of Abdelkrim Belachheb’s murders was Ianni’s
Restaurant and Club. In some ways the establishment once typified the American Dream. Joe Ianni came to the United States from Italy as a toddler, was processed through Ellis Island, and by the age of eight was in Dallas. He and his wife Totsy worked hard all their lives to build a business, earn an honest living, and leave the results of that hard work to their daughter. In less than three or four minutes, Belachheb took two generations of hard work away from a family of good and decent people.
Like many other infamous crime scenes, Ianni’s Restaurant and
Club attracted a wide range of gawkers, from the merely curious to the disturbingly weird. The task of asking some of the stranger patrons to leave fell to the bartenders, like Richard Jones, or evenSee All Chapters

The Macintosh may be only the 8 percent solution in the mainstream business world, but in the graphics and printing industries, its the 800-pound gorilla. Youd better believe that when Apple designed Mac OS X, it worked very hard to keep its graphics and printing fans happy.
This chapter tackles printing, faxing, fonts, graphics, ColorSync, and PDF files, which Mac OS X uses as an everyday exchange formatone of the biggest perks in Mac OS X.
One of the most attractive features of Snow Leopard is that it takes up so much less space on your hard drive. Overall, this operating system is half the size of the previous version.
As it turns out, though, a substantial chunk of that savings comes from printer drivers. Mac OS X used to come preloaded with the printing software for every conceivable printer model from every conceivable printer companyEpson, HP, Lexmark, Canon, and others, several gigabytes worth. Clearly, most people wound up with about 900 wads of printing software theyd never use.See All Chapters

The Engagement Question
Trying to get employees more engaged can be a daunting task. There are so many variables you need to consider.
You need to look holistically at the organization to understand how and where to begin this process—nothing operates in a vacuum, and this is especially true of an organization. Employee engagement is not something that lends itself well to a “grass roots” approach. Rather, employee engagement is more a function of the entire organization, including its systems, policies, rules, processes, norms, expectations, principles, values, and perhaps most importantly its leadership.
Beginning an employee engagement initiative is really like getting engaged to be married in many ways. Both involve a long-term commitment, trust, sharing of values and goals, and compromise.
Like getting engaged to be married, getting engaged with your employees is something that you shouldn’t undertake unless you are totally committed and “in it” for the long-term. Employee engagement isn’t something you should enter into lightly. So before you “pop” the engagement question in your organization, think carefully about what you are asking for and what it means to everyone involved. You may not have to exchange vows with your employees, pledging a lifetime of love and devotion to them, but you do need to be serious about this commitment. If you fail to meet this commitment, you will have a difficult—if not impossible—time ever regaining the trust and respect of your employees. Don’t get engaged unless you are totally committed to the process.See All Chapters
