Horst Schulze: 4 Decisions Every Leader Must Make

HORST SCHULZE knew from the time he was eleven years old that he wanted to work in a hotel. It was at the end of his first apprenticeship in an assigned essay he coined the phrase that would guide him the rest of his life: “Ladies and Gentlemen Serving Ladies and Gentlemen.” This guiding principle—Ladies and Gentlemen Serving Ladies and Gentlemen—is the bedrock of everything Schulze does and teaches. It has a wide application because it is about having enough self-respect to treat all others w...

Howard Schultz, and the Democrats, expect the presidential race to be all about race

If there is such a thing as a moderate Democrat anymore, Howard Schultz, a guy with good ideas whom I actually like, is one. But like the Democrat leadership in Virginia (which used to be considered a part of the “Good South”), Democrats have more racial issues plaguing them these days than Republicans. Soon that state might change its motto to “Virginia is for Lovers of Black Shoe Polish.” Remember a couple of years ago when the former Starbucks CEO and current presidential candidate took a bre...

Penguins Pulpit: Schultz, Crosby and Murray

Under head coach Mike Sullivan, the Pittsburgh Penguins seem to be at their best when dealing with adversity, and they’ve certainly dealt with a lot of it over the last week. After losing Brian Dumoulin and Kris Letang to a concussion and neck injury, respectively, in addition to already missing Olli Maatta, the Penguins were down three of their top-four defensemen for their most crucial week of the season. It didn’t get any easier when they lost forward Bryan Rust and defenseman Chad Ruhwedel f...

The comic strip ‘Drabble’ turns 40 on Tuesday, not that creator Kevin Fagan was going to make a big deal about it

Norman Drabble hasn’t aged much over the years but “Drabble,” the comic strip that bears his name, turns 40 today — not that Kevin Fagan planned to make any fuss about it. But his son, Brian Fagan, thought that if his truly modest dad wasn’t going to toot his and Norman’s horn he’d toot it for him, and emailed word that it was March 5, 1979, when the comic strip debuted, continuing ever since. “I am reaching out in regards to my dad, Kevin Fagan, the creator and cartoonist behind ‘Drabble’,” Fag...

Predators’ Power Play: Good Enough for Cup Run?

The 2018-19 Nashville Predators are a good hockey team. That’s no surprise, they were supposed to be. They also got better at the 2019 Trade Deadline as general manager David Poile brought in Bryan Boyle, Mikael Granlund and Wayne Simmonds. But there’s one area that has been problematic for the team all season: the power play. That won’t come as a shock to Predators fans who’ve watched this team struggle on the man advantage all season. The Predators are a great five-on-five team, yet they have ...

The ‘Green Book’ Controversy Explained: A Tour of Hollywood’s Long History of Mishandling Black Stories

Green Book , starring Mahershala Ali as musical prodigy Dr. Don Shirley and Viggo Mortensen as bouncer-turned-actor Frank Anthony Vallelonga aka Tony Lip, just won Hollywood’s biggest honor. But there are many moviegoers out there who are less than satisfied with Hollywood’s love affair with the film. While Green Book has received support for being an entertaining look at an interracial friendship in the 1960s, many are also annoyed with the film focusing more on its white protagonist rathe...

Penguins Trade for Gudbranson Is a Head Scratching Move

I mentioned a few days ago that the worst move the Pittsburgh Penguins could make at the 2019 Trade Deadline would be dealing for Alex Chiasson of the Edmonton Oilers. It appears Penguins general manager Jim Rutherford saw that and decided to blindside everybody with a jaw-dropping trade. The Penguins sent Tanner Pearson to the Vancouver Canucks for defenseman Erik Gudbranson just as the deadline struck. Getting rid of Pearson in itself isn’t bad — he had been reduced to a fourth-line role and w...

Penguins Pulpit: Letang, Dumoulin, Aston-Reese and a Deadline Target

The Pittsburgh Penguins entered the week in control of their destiny, but now exit it in pursuit of the Carolina Hurricanes, Montreal Canadiens and Columbus Blue Jackets. I mentioned in last week’s Penguins Pulpit that they’d likely need to earn at least five of a possible six points this week to stay ahead of the pack, so predictably, they end up gaining just three of a possible six. The Penguins started strong on Tuesday night with a 4-3 victory over their kryptonite, the New Jersey Devi...

What 5 powerful people can teach us about success

Actress Mindy Kaling recently shared an epiphany she's had about success, telling Variety, "For many years, I thought that hard work was the only way you could succeed, but it's simply not true… Particularly if you're a woman of color, you need people to give you opportunities, because otherwise it won't happen. Talent is an important part of success, but you also need mentors to find promise in people that don't necessarily seem like they will fit in."Kaling has found that getting ahead and hav...

Howard Schultz is against a lot of things. Here’s a look at what he’s for.

One month after Schultz announced he was exploring an independent run for president, he's been eager to point out policy proposals he disagrees with. He's been less clear about what he would do as president.

Former Starbucks CEO Howard Schultz tests the presidential waters in Santa Monica

SANTA MONICA — Howard Schultz sounded a lot like a presidential candidate Thursday night, even as the Starbucks billionaire told a Los Angeles-area audience he could take another three months to decide whether to formally enter the 2020 race. Stating a case for running as an independent, moderate alternative to Republican President Donald Trump and Democratic hopefuls, Schultz said politicians in the two-party system are leaving critical problems unsolved. “Why should the American people have on...

NHL Trade Deadline: “Buyers” Sellers” or “Traders”?

The 2019 NHL Trade Deadline is around the corner, meaning team general managers will be busy over the next few days. Historically, GMs at this time of the season struggle to decide what strategy they will follow. The media has decided that GMs will be either “buyers” or “sellers” at the deadline , with the assigned label based on the league standings at the time, and the probability of their team making the playoffs. Being a potential playoff-bound team usually results in GMs not willing ...

Armed With An Already Spotty Record, Schultz Didn’t Vote In Latest Local Election

Despite touting a message of civic engagement in his 2020 exploratory jaunt — thinly guised as a book publicity tour — Starbucks CEO and potential independent presidential candidate Howard Schultz has only voted in 11 of the last 38 elections, dating back to 2005, according to the Seattle Times. And he continues to not do himself any favors in that category. In the latest local Seattle schools-levy election, Schultz never returned a ballot for a special election on Feb. 12. Both the school le...

Howard Schultz slams 'far-left activists' for 'forcing' Amazon to abandon its New York HQ2 plans (AMZN)

Former Starbucks CEO Howard Schultz slammed politicians on the left for "forcing" Amazon to ditch its New York HQ2 plans in an open letter.  "[F]ar-left activists succeeded in forcing Amazon to abandon plans to create a second headquarters in the New York City area, which would have brought 25,000 jobs and injected billions of dollars into the local economy," Schultz wrote.  Many New York politicians and local activists pushed back on Amazon's plans to open a second headquarters in Long Island...

Penguins Defense Holding Back Lethal Offense

The Pittsburgh Penguins hosted back-to-back games this weekend against the Calgary Flames and New York Rangers. Despite scoring 10 goals in those contests, they also gave up 10 and split the two games. While the defense is obviously struggling, it’s refreshing to see the offense kicking it into another gear. Returning Players Ignite Offense This offensive outburst was sparked by a nearly healthy Penguins lineup. Justin Schultz returned from a 53-game absence and notched a pair of assists over ...

Puljujarvi Fills a Devils’ Need, but Is He Worth It?

It’s obvious the New Jersey Devils still have some rebuilding to do. They began that process when they traded Brian Boyle to the Nashville Predators for a second-round pick. It’s likely he won’t be the only one moved, as Marcus Johansson and Ben Lovejoy are both on expiring contracts. Even though the Devils will be sellers, they can still look to acquire talent. One name in the rumor mill is Jesse Puljujarvi’s, who’s struggled with the Edmonton Oilers. His time in Edmonton could be coming to an ...
