Lessons Learned From the Movie Captain Ron

Tonight I watched the movie Captain Ron again (for about the 10th time in the last 12 months) — and let my daughter Chelsea watch it for the first time. I decided the story made up for the language and the slightly inappropriate shower scene. Partly because Chelsea’s now 14, and partly because the shower scene is just darn good comedy.

The story of Captain Ron is so freaking awesome: the Harvey family of Chicago inherits an old sailboat and decides to throw caution to the wind and sail it from somewhere in the Caribbean to Miami where they will sell it. Since they’re not sailors, they hire «Captain Ron» to sail the boat and teach them how along the way.

The movie stars Martin Short as Mr. Harvey and Kurt Russell (in a Speedo) as Captain Ron. It’s a funny movie with a great moral: Get out of your rut and go DO something as a family!

When my family started this whole «living on the road thing» I hoped to be in a trailer for about a year and then graduate to a sailboat. Due to business slowing down the sailboat piggy bank hasn’t filled up yet, but I’m still working toward that.

I’m starting to feel more than a little pressure because my son Tom turned 16 last February and while I don’t know that he’ll take off as soon as he turns 18, I want to get us on a boat for a while before he is eligible to escape my clutches.

Why? Because I think people who have «typical» upbringings are at a disadvantage in life. They see things in a very narrow way which limits their choices. After all, how can you make a sharp left when everybody else is veering right if you don’t even know that left is an option?

When we started this journey we didn’t have enough money saved up. But if we had waited until things were «better» we’d never have hit the road and experienced new things…

Places

We played on the beach in Santa Cruz.

Picked oranges outside our trailer in Bakersfield.

Walked the rim of the Grand Canyon (and got some great photos).

Watched the moon rise over the Superstition Mountains (and talked about the Lost Dutchman Gold Mine hidden there).

Wandered the streets of Tombstone where the Gunfight at the OK Corral took place.

Cheered Tom as he followed in his Uncle Nick’s footsteps and chased down an armadillo (it was catch and release, folks).

Saw the Alamo where so many American heroes lost their lives.

Visited the UFO Museum in Roswell. («UFOs aren’t real, Dad.» Five minutes later, «Are UFOs real, Dad?»)

Drove across the London Bridge (brought brick by brick from London to Arizona).

People

And we met some wonderful people on the trip, including the Sauers family in Santa Nella. We ended up parked next to each other in an RV park and while there was a pretty big age gap between their kids and ours, they were still all kids and got along pretty well. After we left we continued following their travels via their blog.

And we met — and juggled with — both members of the Raspyni Brothers. Barry invited us to his house for the day to meet his family and play and Dan let us stop by his place for some juggling and an impromptu piano concert. I’d been fans of the Raspyni Bros for-freakin’-ever, so the chance to actually spend some time with them was the coolness.

Plus many more people — the families in Bastrop, the gunfighters near Tombstone, the jugglers in Austin, etc.

When you live in a house, and go to the same job every day, and see the same people all the time, you don’t have adventures. You just skate through life. And at age 47 I’m realizing life’s too short for that kind of skating — I regret the time I didn’t spend seeing new things and meeting new people.

Which is why if we had the opportunity to move onto a sailboat tomorrow, I’d do it — even though none of us know how to sail. We’d stay anchored (mostly) until we could figure out how to work the thing, but at least we’d be on the way.

I don’t see any reason to «settle down» at this point — there are too many things to see, places to visit and people to meet. How could you trade those things for a house fastened to the ground?

Home Reconstruction Project – Explore The Multiple Benefits Of Suspended Ceilings

Dropped ceilings, popularly known as false or suspended ceilings, give the ideal example of contemporary construction and architecture. They help give uniformity to your interiors – something that plastering cannot offer. Usually, an artificial ceiling is a surface built or placed below the real ceiling. Basically, it’s a design element, used for accommodating the total light set up – spotlight, bounce light, hidden light, floating light and many more. If you feel bored of looking at the same age-old interiors, then here’s something interesting for you – false ceilings. These installations are incredibly attractive, while offering benefits other than aesthetics.

When it comes to dropped ceiling, most people consider it as a surface that hangs high up, offering both architectural character and space to your interiors. However, these installations serve purposes beyond the aesthetics. Here are some of the top benefits of using false or suspended ceilings in your home.

Lower utility bill

Heat has a tendency to rise above. Hence, when you install high roofs in your home, the heat naturally accumulates above your head and doesn’t make you feel cozy. On the other hand, false or hanging roofs trap the heat below. With these hanging surfaces, you’ll find it easier and cost-effective to keep your interiors cool during summer and warm during winter. The reason behind this is that there is less square footage to work upon. As a result, your house becomes more energy-efficient. Consequently, you can save a lot of money on electricity bills.

Calm and noise-free ambiance

With high ceilings in your home, it appears as though your room reverberates. This is equally true for hard basements. When you have a dropped ceiling in your house, you’ll find that it absorbs sound completely. As a matter of fact, it works even better when made from acoustical tiles. For those with surround sound stereo system in their house, these ceilings prove extremely beneficial. Even if you don’t have such music systems, you’ll enjoy a lot of privacy in your house.

Simple installation

Thanks to modern technology and set ups, you can easily opt for a DIY ceiling installation project, particularly when you choose one with the grid system. With these projects, you can transform your age-old house into a modern living area. With false or suspended ceilings, you can easily access any wire or pipeline that’s placed upon your ceiling. One can easily do this by detaching a couple of ceiling tiles and exposing the area of repair.

Is Cultural Intelligence and Millennial Engagement Part of Your Leadership Arsenal?

In his book, The Science of Leadership: Lessons from Research for Organizational Leaders, Julian Barling (2014) asked a very profound question. «Do leaders matter? If so, in terms of what outcomes?» This discussion intrigued me. As I read the chapter, I contemplated, from an outcome perspective, how can organizational leaders continue to grow their leadership team, gain global influence, and maximize millennial contribution?

Based on training and research conducted at the McDonough School of Business at Georgetown University coupled with real-world experience, I propose two strategies. The first strategy alerts organizational leaders to cultural biases in global strategic planning. Lack of this awareness can invoke personal idiosyncrasies, create blinders, and prohibit productivity. The second strategy is critical to reducing the high millennial turnover rate in organizations.

1. Invest in Cultural Intelligence Awareness Training

Economic globalization is driving the need for leaders to understand multicultural differences in business operations. Since many businesses are establishing a global footprint, developing leaders with high cultural intelligence is a vital skill. Although there are many instruments available to aid in this training, I previously used the Globe Smart Five Dimensions of Culture Awareness Tool. By using this tool, I was better prepared to engage with a small management consulting firm in Cape Town, South Africa.

So, why is cultural awareness important in strategic planning? Several years ago, I worked with several countries in Sub-Saharan Africa (SSA). My team and I were responsible for developing security-cooperation engagement activities for these countries. Since the United States’ goal was to eliminate safe havens for terrorists, especially on the African continent, we wanted to build trust and influence with our African partners.

Imagine if we had approached this engagement with a US-centric only mentality. Our efforts in this region of the world would have failed. Because we could not afford to allow our cultural differences to disrupt productivity, we invested tremendous time and research studying these countries. Our cultural awareness training enhanced our ability to collaborate and engage effectively with these global partners.

2. Maximize Investment in Millennial Contribution

How is your company measuring its investment in its millennial workforce? Are you allowing talent to walk out the door? In The 2016 Deloitte Millennial Survey: Winning over the Next Generation of Leaders, researchers cited, «More than 44 percent of millennials are now in leadership positions, but most believe they are receiving little to no development in their roles… Millennials still feel left out; only 28 percent believe their organization is fully taking advantage of their skills» (p.6).

As the host of a local television show titled, Leadership Table Talk, I recently interviewed several millennials regarding their perspective on leadership development in technology-driven organizations. Having spent over 35 years in the telecommunications and information systems technology business in both the military, government, and corporate America, I was curious about their perspective. The prevailing narrative from these interviews was «we just want a chance to contribute to the overall success of the organization.» What can we derive from this feedback? I purport that if organizations fail to engage effectively the talents of their millennial workforce, turnover rates will not decrease but increase – at an alarming rate.

In summary, economic globalization continues to drive corporate engagement with other countries. By developing a cultural intelligence awareness-training program, organizations can grow their leadership teams and global influence. Likewise, by strategically engaging the millennial workforce, organizations can maximize their productivity, and retain their expertise.

Student Letting Analysis For UK Residential Landlords

The student letting market is a niche market for landlords but one that can be very rewarding if a landlord gets it right but equally it's very easy and expensive if landlords get it wrong.

Landlords have been letting to students studying away from home for years. Originally the market was relatively small and concentrated in a small number of university towns. However, the explosion in higher education numbers since the 70's and 80's and now with the Government's aspiration to have 50% of 18-30 year olds in Higher Education by 2010 means that demand for accommodation has grown massively over the last 30 years.

The result has been the emergence of a "cottage industry" of student landlords in many towns. Many parents have helped solve their student off springs accommodation needs by financing the purchase of a single investment property to let out whilst their son or daughter completed their education. In this way they ensure that they have some where decent to live whilst also avoiding paying out dead money in rent and also potentially providing a good long-term property investment.

Demand for student housing

Data from the Office for National Statistics show that the higher education initial participation rate was 40% among 17 to 30 year olds in 2006/2007, down from the 43% achieved in 05/06 but still short of the Governments target of 50%.

According to Knight Frank the UK student population has grown consistently over the last 10 years. Total student numbers have grown from 1.8 million in 1997 to 2.5 million in 2007. Savills expect this to hit 3 million full and part time students by 2014. Growth has been driven in the main by domestic UK undergraduate demand. There is a trend to rising numbers of foreign student, with participation of overseas students at UK universities rising 67% over the past decade. Knight Frank research shows that in 1997 they accounted for 11% (international students) and 21% (postgraduates) of all students; by 2007 these figures had increased to 15% and 24% respectively. Both international students and postgraduates are more likely to opt for purpose built private student housing rather than shared houses. Foreign student numbers are expected to grow from 15% of all students in 2008 to 21% by 2018.

Current supply

Savills research estimates that there are:

* 459,000 student beds in halls of residence
* 680,000 full time students in Houses of Multiple Occupation (HMOs)
* 259,000 full time students live at home with their parents

The number of students living at home with their parents has risen from 13% in 1996/97 to 19% in 2005/06. The number of full-time students living in HMOs has risen from 37% to 46% largely as a result of student number not being matched by the number of student beds provided within purpose built student accommodation.

As a general trend the supply of accommodation by private landlords has been falling in the last couple of years. This is in part to the HMO licensing regulations that came in 2006 and also as a result of the increasing number of private operated halls. In 2005 this type of accommodation accounted for around 7% of all bed spaces with the figure growing to around 10% in 2007. The expansion of private accommodation has partly been as a result of the increasing demand form post graduate and foreign students who demand and are able to afford higher rents and demand a higher standard of accommodation.

Future supply of student housing

Analysis of planning application data shows that there are approximately 78,000 potential student bed spaces in the planning pipeline at the end of 2006. 26% are at the application stage, 42% are awaiting full planning consent and the remaining 32% have planning consent and are under construction.

Student housing rent levels

Research carried out by Savills show that student rental levels have continued to increase over the last 20 years. Their opinion is that:

"This implies significant performance benefits over both conventional residential lettings and the commercial market, where cyclical downturns have resulted in periods of negative income growth."

However they did express some words of caution.

"increasing levels of supply may also suppress rental growth which suggests that location and proximity to universities will be the key determining factor."

Over the last 4 years according to research conducted by accommodation for students average rent levels have increased 17% from £ 52.44 to £ 62.48.

There are as one would expect large variations in rent levels across the country.

London and the south most expensive; Chester, Exeter and Loughborough are the high flyers, according to latest accommodationforstudents.com research (May 08)

The average weekly student rent in the UK is now £ 61.48, a figure 1.5% higher than last year according to the stats which are based on over 44,000 properties in 76 cities across the UK (see full table below). Over the past 4 years the average student rent has risen 17%, from £ 52.44 in 2004.

London leads the way with an average weekly rent of £ 102.85, 67% above the UK average. Moreover, it is generally more expensive to rent student accommodation in the south of the country. Middlesex, Cambridge, Guildford, Surrey, Exeter, Oxford and Brighton are all 20% or more costly than the UK norm. Two notable exceptions are Scotland and Ireland. St. Andrews, thanks, perhaps, to the attendance of Prince William, has an average student rent of £ 82.29, 34% above the UK average and the highest by far in Scotland. Edinburgh and Glasgow are also above average, but only 14% by comparison, with average weekly rents of £ 70.26 and £ 70.08 respectively, the first time Edinburgh has been higher than Glasgow since the research began 5 years ago.

Dublin has been included for the first time. It is not obviously part of the UK but is still popular with students from here; rents are second only to London at £ 87.68 per week, 43% above average. Belfast, by comparison, can offer inexpensive student accommodation, with average weekly rents being only £ 51.79, 16% below the rest of the UK.

Some traditional English redbrick universities: Liverpool (£ 50.52), Birmingham (£ 54.28), Manchester (£ 56.65), and Sheffield (£ 57.12) are still below the average UK weekly student rent (£ 61.48). However others, like Leeds (£ 62.03), Nottingham (£ 61.60), and Newcastle (£ 58.90) reflect their popularity by rising rent levels. All three have shown rent increases well over twice the UK average of 1.5% over the last year; Leeds is up by 6.5%.

Best value locations in terms of student rental accommodation are the less fashionable student towns like Crewe, Middlesbrough, Stoke, Wolverhampton and Bradford, with average weekly rents of between £ 40 and £ 45.

There are a number of 'hotspot' areas, Exeter, for instance, which now have an average weekly student rent of £ 77.54, 26% above average, and higher even than Oxford. Yet five years ago average student rents in the city were only £ 58, 34% less. Rents in Loughborough have risen 28% in the last four years, from £ 52 per week to £ 66.81. But the real current high-flyer in terms of student rents is Chester, where rents have gone up 14% in the last year alone, from £ 67.83 to £ 77.12, putting it firmly in the UK Top 10.

London unsurprisingly is still the most expensive city by far, although student rents in the capital have remained stable. However, in comparison, the rest of the UK is catching up. In 2004 the average student rent in London was 95% above the UK average of £ 53.44. Today, at £ 102.85, the weekly student rent in the capital is just 67% above the average of £ 61.48.

Interpreting the figures

Landlords need to be aware that in viewing these figures that they are the average achieved across the accommodation types. These levels have in recent years been boosted by the upgrading of student accommodation brought about by the contribution of purpose built private sector student halls. This accommodation is frequently provided with ensuite facilities, which according to Savills generates rents that are on average at a premium of 19% to similar shared accommodation. Therefore a prospective landlord should ensure that they do their own local research by talking to local rental agents and University Accommodation Offices before factoring in their expected rents to their investment calculations.

Having looked at the demand and supply of rental accommodation and likely rents we go on in part two to look at the likely investment return and practical considerations of investing in student accommodation including looking at several case studies.

Vacation Destinations in England

At times it seems that the United Kingdom, and especially England, is just one large vacation destination due, mainly, to the fact that wherever you find yourself you are never too far from a first class tourist attraction, area of outstanding natural beauty, an outstanding museum or art gallery or a city crammed full of amenities suitable for all manner of vacations or city breaks.

Most people who visit England on a vacation tend to choose the capital city, London, as their destination. While this makes total sense if you are only likely to visit the country once or twice there are plenty of other great places to visit and spend a few days or weeks. London has some of the most instantly recognisable visitor attractions in the world and the most famous are usually associated with the British Royal Family, for example Buckingham Palace. Being the capital city it is also home to some of the country’s finest museums and art galleries however equal museums and art galleries are found across the country such as the Walker Art Gallery in Liverpool.

Cities such as Liverpool are fast becoming popular destinations for visitors looking for something a little bit different to their usual seaside vacation. While the city has plenty of visitor attractions associated with the world famous sons of the city, the Beatles, you do not have to look too far before you find something of outstanding quality. The Albert Dock complex is well worth a visit and it is where you will find the Tate Gallery and the Maritime Museum. Recently the European Capital of Culture the city has plenty to keep visitors entertained and few places offer such a lively and entertaining nightlife.

If you are looking for a seaside vacation England has plenty of excellent seaside resorts with the most popular being Blackpool, Brighton and Newquay. Blackpool and Brighton both have a long association with tourism and while Brighton benefits from a large youth and student population to boost its nightlife Blackpool is more popular for such things as stag and hen parties. Newquay is a popular family seaside destination but it is also one of the best places to either go surfing or to learn to surf. Miles and miles of gorgeous Cornish beaches provide some of the finest surfing opportunities in the United Kingdom.

One of the great things about taking a vacation in England is that wherever you choose to stay you will find an England hotel, guest house or B&B to match your budget. If you want to stay somewhere cheap and cheerful there are plenty of two and three star establishments offering budget accommodation but it is often worth looking for a last minute booking discount as it is sometimes possible to pick up a room, say in London, for as little as £15 for the night.

Ian Callaghan – Liverpool FC Legend

Ian Callaghan was born in Liverpool in 1942, he supported Liverpool as a child and went on to play for Liverpool. During his eighteen years at the club, Ian Callaghan made a record 857 appearances for Liverpool, a record that still stands today and is unlikely ever to be broken.

Callaghan signed for Liverpool as an apprentice and made his first team debut during the 1960 season, when Liverpool were playing in the second division, he began to play regularly in the first team from 1961 season onwards. The 1962 season saw Liverpool win the second division championship and gain promotion back to the first division.

Nick-named 'Cally' Ian Callaghan became the backbone of the Liverpool team which embarked on a journey from second division mediocrity, to English and European football supremacy.

The 1963-64 season saw Liverpool win the first division league title and again in 1965-66, winning the FA Cup against Leeds United in 1965.

Ian Callaghan was known as a true gentleman, and he was only booked once during all his appearances for Liverpool. Initially employed as a 'winger' Callaghan was renowned for his pace, stamina and accurate passing, from which he created many goals for strike partnership Ian St John and Roger Hunt.

Later in his career Callaghan assumed a midfield role, after a career threatening injury during the 1970-71 season, from which he fought his way back into the team, and many say he played better in that role than he had done before.

Many believe that the 1973-74 was Callaghan's best at Liverpool, when he again helped them to win the FA Cup and he was awarded the football player of year award, and subsequently awarded an MBE for his services to football.

Callaghan's career at Liverpool was still far from over, at the age of 34 he helped Liverpool win the league title and UEFA Cup in 1976, and the following season win the league, and the European Cup for the first time in Liverpool's history.

Ian Callaghan was to play one more season for Liverpool, and the 1978 season saw Liverpool retain the European Cup. In the Autumn of 1978 Ian Callaghan finally left Liverpool, when he joined Swansea City, after an incredible 857 appearances and 69 goals. A true Liverpool legend.

Media in Manchester

Manchester is a large city located in the south central part of North West England. The city saw a lot of expansion at the beginning of the 19th century and you can even see today the difference that this expansion did to the way how the city is constructed as the urbanization of the city coincided with the Victorian era and the industrial revolution.

Manchester can be considered to be a center of arts, the media, higher education and commerce and it is considered to be the second largest city in the UK. It is highly populated and it is considered to be the third most visited city in the UK by foreign visitors. Manchester hotels are very reasonably priced and there are many other facilities that you will find in this city to be very well managed and maintained.
