Andre: Ok things are getting really interesting now. Lot of big names missing, still some serious ones in the mix, add to that the constant possibilities of a surprise or two… The women’s 400m looks like it’s going to be another good one. KC: I think this is one of the most wide open 400m female events at a major championships as I think the field lacks good quality. Andre: I knew you’d say that because your girl Francena McCorory did not make the U.S. 400m team. I think there is good quality here and we have seen in the heats that folks are coming into form, looking comfortable in qualifying and threatening to run much faster when it’s needed. KC: It is so unfortunate that the best female quarter-miler in the world will not be competing here as she can beat anyone in this line up by a half a second but the show has to go on. Imagine a line-up going into the Championships where only one lady has gone sub 50 seconds this season in Shaunae Miller and I will not be surprised if the winning time will be the slowest in history at these Championships. Andre: McCorory knew what the qualifying criteria was. She foolishly sacrificed a spot on the 400m team for a world lead and as an experienced athlete you would expect better. Anyway, let’s talk about the ladies who are actually competing. Allyson Felix has multiple sub 50 times to her credit and will definitely go there this week. KC: This is a great opportunity for Jamaica to make history here as we could see all four making it to the final where I think McPherson is our best medal hope and she is due for a very big performance. If she is not too far off the pace in the final, she could be in for a history-making performance. Andre: McPherson has had her issues this year, but she is doing better and looks like she will go fast here, same for Bianca Razor and we know that Christine Ohuruogu will be there when the roll is called. But yes, it’s a good chance for some Jamaican joy in this event, even if Felix and Miller are ahead of our girls. KC: I am not worried about Razor here as she has PR already in the first round, a similar situation like we saw in the men’s 400m. I expect though that it will be a duel for gold between Miller and Felix, as these two have the best 200 metres speed in the field and could use this to their advantage. Andre: Yes, I agree. I think there will be two races in one; the race for the gold between Miller and Felix and the race for the bronze between McPherson and Ohuruogu, who I find it hard to count out. Natasha Hastings looked unconvincing in the heats, but has decent quality and could also be a factor, along with youngster Shericka Jackson, who is ready to break out. KC: McPherson has been finishing third all season in majority of the Diamond League meets and must be hungry now for a better placing, but can she beat either, Miller or Felix? Yes, I think so and while Ohuruogu always saves her best for the big moments, this time she could be found wanting as I think her luck will run out. Williams-Mills is also in the same situation as time is catching up on them and both could find themselves out of the final this time around. Andre: I’m worried about Novlene Williams-Mills, she has some medical issues this year and it has affected her preparation. McPherson is ready to run fast, but her preparation has also been hampered this year. I’m banking on the young Bahamian to win, just over Felix, with McPherson going one better than last World Champs and taking the bronze. KC: The experience and class of Felix will prevail here and she will win her first major 400 metres title and make up for her narrow loss to Montsho in Daegu as this lineup is not frightening. Miller should do enough to hold on for second and Hasting, who normally goes out fast, could cause some problems here. She and McPherson could have a battle royal in the final 50 metres for the bronze medal.
While most people keep a watchful eye on the athletes at major sporting competitions, Lindsay Smith instead has her sights set on those working behind the scenes.The Brock graduate student is delving deep into employees who work at international multi-sport events, such as the Olympics, Pan American Games and Commonwealth Games.It’s an area she has firsthand knowledge in, having worked at the Commonwealth Youth Games in Samoa after graduating from Brock’s Sport Management program in 2015.She travelled to the Pacific island nation as part of a Queen Elizabeth Scholarship program.Smith’s time with the international multi-sport competition, held over two weeks in Samoa’s capital of Apia, was eye opening.Being part of that niche workforce gave her insight into employment within the major games industry and into the vital role employees play in the organization and operation of the international events. Smith’s experience at the Commonwealth Youth Games now frames her research direction as a Master of Arts student under the supervision of Professor Kirsty Spence.She is in the early stages of a study to better understand the impact of leadership on the development of employees’ perceived workplace fulfillment in the major games industry.Smith’s work experience, which also includes the Rio 2016 Summer Olympics, “significantly influenced her decision to more deeply explore the relationship between leadership and its impact on employees’ workplace fulfillment through her Graduate thesis project,” Spence said.“We are certainly looking forward to the managerial and theoretical implications from her study.”Major games are “extremely high intensity and are prone to change with little to no notice given to its employees,” Smith said. “After being exposed to the workings of major games myself, I became interested in exploring how employees feel when there is so much chaos in their jobs and how different leadership styles can impact them in these situations.”The impact of Smith’s research is rooted in discovering the experience that major games employees have at work.She aims to learn whether employee needs can be met in a broader sense, where meaning developed at work transcends the workplace, also nourishing their personal lives.Smith also hopes to discover whether this is important to employees’ lives both inside and outside of the work context.“Researchers rarely focus on leadership, human resources and employee relations topics within the major games context, which means that this exploratory study has the potential to open the door to many more questions and improvements in the major games industry,” Smith said. Major games leaders will benefit from Smith’s research as it seeks to provide increased insight into the potential needs of employees. Additionally, her research may have direct implications to sport organizations and major games events, as employees who experience workplace fulfillment are said to be more productive — a factor that contributes to overall organizational productivity and success.Smith will soon begin her research by conducting interviews with major games sport managers who have been involved with past or current events.Participants will have relevant insight into the major games working environment and the role that leaders play in the development of employee fulfillment in such a unique working context.In May, Smith will be presenting her research at the Canadian Congress on Leisure Research (CCLR) conference in Waterloo and the North American Society of Sport Management (NASSM) conference in Denver, Colo.
customers are now more selective shopping, the same goods, the same price, people will naturally choose a more comfortable shopping environment. My shop is located in the county traffic arteries. At the beginning of the shop, every winter, his store is cold, very few people to patronize, opposite the supermarket business but people into people, very hot. This let me be not a little bewildered: their tobacco quality is no problem, the price lower than the supermarkets, and good service attitude, why customers but also to the supermarket?
later, my wife told me a little secret: the supermarket has air conditioning, which is very warm. I suddenly realized: the original store lack of heat effect". As a result, immediately bought a hanging air conditioning, and on the glass door affixed to the shop to install air conditioning, welcome to patronize logo. Sure enough, into the store to buy cigarettes and alcohol customers gradually more up, business is not cold.
comments: customers into the store shopping, not only to buy your goods, but also enjoy your quality service. Shop to do business to always think about the customer, they need to know what kind of goods, what kind of service. As long as the customer satisfaction is happy, why not sell goods?
so, in the current market, above, if you want to get the customer’s recognition, naturally also need to consider a lot of customers. Recommended conditional retail households, it is necessary to install air conditioning or heating facilities in the business premises, so that customers can feel the cool in the summer into the shop, in the winter into the store can feel the warmth of spring. With such a close service, will be able to get God point praise.
