A Reminder Of Joy From A Glade Air Freshener

8 Nov


At the grocery store I work at, we do a weekly audit for the scan department: scanning 1000+ items to ensure the price tags are accurate. I enjoy doing this because I get to study how products are designed: graphics, colors, logos, and product descriptions. Graphic design, along with video design, is one of my love languages.

While I was working in the cleaning supplies aisle yesterday, one of the Glade air fresheners caught my eye… and my nose? Is that a thing?


Pure Vanilla Joy

“How nice,” I thought, as I picked it up, scanned it with my scan gun, double checked the price, and put it back in its place, but not before smelling it, of course. It smelled wonderful. My nose was definitely caught.

Interviewers Need Training Too

2 Nov

Interview-imageThe act of interviewing someone for a position is no joke. It’s not as easy as it seems, and this is one of the reasons we have so many well spoken employees who are ‘underperformers’, yep, I said it. We are in a social culture where we love the rhetoric, and it convinces us that these eloquent speakers are our best fit. We hire them and find out, not so, not so at all.

We naively believe that there are standard questions we ask, and expect standard responses, and if they speak well on the interview then that’s it. “Tell me about yourself”…”Why should we hire you?” These two are our heavy hitters in an interview and if we hear what we want from the interviewee then he/she is good to go (or should I say, good to come, or good to hire…?)

We fail to understand that there are…

It really doesn’t have to be this way though…as an HR professional, one should be mindful that yes, you are playing a balancing act in the organization. The Role of HR is really the go-between person where it’s a win win situation for both the employer and the employee. That person should be smooth and sharp; or should I say, allowed to be smooth and sharp, well versed in HR policies and procedures, a “lawyer” for sure in order to arrive at the best interests of both employee and employer. Utopia perhaps?

Why oh why, do most employees in particular NOT trust HR personnel, and interestingly enough, the senior management of the organization does NOT trust HR personnel to make the best and ultimately the right decisions on their behalf!!! Hark…the word “Trust” is glaring out at us …up in this joint!!!

If there actually is a “one off” HR…

So Betty “BB” Byfield told me about her co-worker who had five children ages 3 – 14 and had just re-entered the workforce. Her husband had passed due to a heart related disease which forced her to get a job that would meet the needs of her family. As she had no personal vehicle, she had challenges getting her children to school and the nursery, and living in Spanish Town, St. Catherine was yet another added challenge, as she could only afford rent in that area.

Her appraisal for appointment rolled around and she was given an additional period of six months (add that to the six months she had already completed) due to her punctuality issues. BB said it was unfair as the facts were:

• Her punctuality reflected not more than fifteen minutes late
• She ate at her desk in order to continue working to account for…

Weather Mysteries: The Moscow Halo Cloud

6 May

The strange, shining cloud that was sighted above Moscow caused a lot of curiosity and some concern but what exactly could have caused it?

A strange cloud with an unusual shape was spotted in the skies above Moscow, Russia. This phenomenon has been dubbed a ‘halo cloud’ for its similarity in appearance to that of a halo. This halo is kind of big however. Big both in size and in the amount of attention it has received.

Described as everything from a UFO to a sign of the apocalypse, the cloud has stirred admiration, awe and curiosity worldwide. What are the explanations for this phenomenon?

It’s said by some to be meteorological in origin, like the Aurora Borealis and ball lightning (luminous, moving balls which have been observed during thunderstorms). Here are some weather facts to help you draw your own conclusion.

  • The sky gets brighter around clouds. Over several years, satellites have measured halos around clouds, which extend as far as 9 miles away from the clouds.
  • Clouds behave like mirrors in the sky. They reflect sunlight and create a halo effect around them.
  • Clouds actually cool the earth by reflecting solar energy back into space. Even when the sky appears to be cloudless, particles in the sky are still present, reflecting energy back into the sky.
  • Sometimes, large circular gaps appear in clouds. These gaps are called fallstreak holes. They occur in cirrocumulus or altocumulus clouds.

Fallstreak holes are formed when the water temperature in a cloud is just approaching freezing. There is a gorgeous picture of a fallstreak hole on Jpgmag. The picture was taken by David Lee Tiller. Kristi83 also has a great picture on Flickr!

When the halo cloud appeared, there was atmospheric interference caused by cold air from the Arctic region. Several cold fronts had also passed through Moscow around that time.

So, what do you think? Whatever the explanation is, the halo cloud is really something to see! If you enjoy looking at phenomena such as eclipses and the like, make sure you look at this one.
