I am doing a mini-project for a management class and am wondering if any managers might be able to answer a few questions relating to their job. I have thought about going the "ask the McDonalds manager" route but thought there might be some people with more experience in the MGoBoard. Please indicate if you are interested in helping me out.
Mods, feel free to delete if necessary
1. Briefly describe your current position and responsibilities.
2. What do your subordinates expect from you on the job?
3. What are the major stresses and challenges you face on the job?
4. What, if anything, do you dislike about the job?
5. What do you like best about your job?
6. What are the critical differences between average managers and top-performing managers?
7. Think about the skills and knowledge that you need to be effective in your job. What are they, and how did you acquire them?
8. What have been your biggest mistakes thus far? Could you have avoided them? If so, how?
If you'd prefer, you can email me at [email protected]. Please include your name. I appreciate the help guys!
With the amount of rumors posted from ESPN Insider or from columnists on there, everyone complains/asks how to get access - this is the cheapest way. Tying your subscription account # to your ESPN.com login allows full access. And no I don't work for TWWL or this site, just trying to pass it on.
Use coupon "ESPN" for discount. Insider is a free service for ESPN the Magazine subscribers - very easy process once the subscription is bought and the only quirk, IIRC, was you need to call once a year to have them activate the Insider subscription again due to it being 'promotional.'
If this fails the smell test for the mods, feel free to delete (fwiw, I just renewed my dad's so I know it works).
Happy MLK Day. An important holiday that shows the progress we continue to make as a people. (pic courtesy of JordanBakerSays: http://mgoblog.com/mgoboard/ot-lloyd-brady-photoshop-thread)
Small update this morning that gives you the option to have all images that are too wide for their container to be automatically resized. This should prevent images from flooding over into the MGoBoard list, and other lists, on the right side of the page if they're huge.
I'll be working on getting it togglable (not sure that's a word) so that you can have the convenience of reasonable sized images with the ability to blow them up as big as you want.
Once again, the link to the extension is https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/plgbhpppodkjceilgjeepcjbjdamknld
Previous information about what else it can do is here: http://mgoblog.com/mgoboard/ultra-mgoboard-v15. My apologies for the gigantic Denard picture, I was using it to test the current version. (However, if you install it, Denard will be brought down to a more manageable size.)
Since OT is okay again, I thought I would return to this forum's second favorite subject. As I sit tonight cleaning my old irons for selling (Rawlings Oversize Pure Gold, 3-SW, knicks and scratches but in great shape, $50 if interested), I am sipping on a Kirkland Signature Hefeweizen. It is very good.
For those unaware, Kirkland is Costco's in store brand, and unlike most in store brands, their stuff is usually just as good, if not better than the competition. So, when I saw that they were now selling beer, I decided to take a chance.
First, like most things Kirkland brand, it is EXTREMELY reasonably priced at about $20 for 24 longnecks. At about .90 cents per bottle, this beats out any other craft brew I've seen by a dime, and most by 25 or more cents. The 24 case came with 4 six packs of their four craft brews, Hefeweizen, Pale Ale, Amber Ale, and a German Style Lager.
Each is equally well represented, a good simple example of that type of ale or lager without having an exceptionally distinct character. The Pale Ale, for instance is very good with a pronounced bitter hopiness, but it is not a Bell's Two Hearted. For the cost, if you have a costco membership, you relly can't go wrong. Pricewise, it's closer to Bud, but drinking wise, it's closer to your favorite craft.
EDIT: Preferred user highlighting works! Now you can choose all those users you want to stick out from the crowd and have their posts listed with yellow headers instead of blue!
I'm actually happy with how this looks/works now. Head to this link to download the new and improved Ultra-MGoBoard v1.4, previously (as in yesterday) known as MGoRestrict. You will need Google Chrome to be able to install it.
- Hide all negative posters
- Hide all positive posters (Useful if you're looking for some laughs. This was suggested by .ghost. and I like the idea. Could be helpful for mods scouring for active trolls as well I guess...)
- Indicate removed posts. This is the biggest improvement over the previous version. You can now see the title/username of a removed post in red, and clicking will show/hide the post. Nice for situations where you're curious what someone did to deserve their epic negbang.
- Removing individual posters from the blacklist. Now you don't have to clear the entire list and reenter everyone but the person you want to remove.
Things I want to add yet:
- Highlighting of preferred users. This would make it easier to scan through a thread and find stuff from Brian, TomVH, etc. This might actually be more helpful than being able to block people.
- Insert a button to add someone to the blocklist from within the thread.
- And brianc500, I'll keep thinking about ways to autoposbang Lloyd Brady posts, or at least indicate them so you can find them to posbang them on your own.
It still needs some sprucing up, but it's actually pretty useful. As usual, questions/comments/suggestions are welcome.
