My only disappointment was that they didn’t smash a guitar.
Actually, looking back, I’m glad they didn’t. That would have been wasteful, and such destructive behavior really wasn’t as “cool” in their later years. The Who could still put on an incredible concert though.
You know what’s fun? Reminiscing about old, iconic commercials is fun. You’ve got your “Beef, It’s What’s for Dinner,” the California Raisins dancing across your screen, and some excessively persistent kid giving a limping and clearly frustrated “Mean Joe” Greene of the Pittsburgh Steelers a Coca-Cola in exchange for his sweaty, disgusting football jersey. Ahhhhhhhh, good times.

Addressing the misperceptions, examining the structure, and finding the money for a statewide public defenders office

So what would the Olympics look like in non-sports form? Let’s assume the whole world was willing to gather for some other purpose, sending official delegations, national leaders, support staff and even fans to one city for two weeks. What if that gathering captured the same spirit of hope and enthusiasm that permeates the Olympic Games? Perhaps the focus could even be something as ambitious as solving climate change. Can you imagine that?
Following the adoption of the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), which outline 17 critical global challenges to be addressed by 2030, BNY Mellon’s global head of Corporate Social Responsibility, John Buckley, asked, “What’s next for the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals?” A panel at the recent BSR Conference, “Implementing the SDGs: A How-to Guide,” tackled that question by looking at the role that companies across industries
Delivering Financial Services with the Clients’ Needs in Mind
By Dennis White, President & CEO, MetLife Foundation
