“tv anchor falls on television”

What’s remarkable is the way she recovered. Great example of grace under pressure. Had the the presence of mind to throw the broadcast over to the weather guy and seemed to be thinking ahead of the people behind the cameras and even the director. Even thought to reassure everyone she was okay in order to head off a bunch of calls to the station switchboard. Now, if only she hadn’t put herself in the situation to begin with by asking the chair to do something it apparently wasn’t meant to do. Is there a reason the chairs are on wheels?

Rocky Mountain Tech Trifecta v2 big success (Julie Yack’s Blog) – "When his projector failed, presenter James Johnson didn’t let that stop him. He flattened out his laptop and used a document camera to display his screen and presentation for his group."

Confidence in your Crew (CTS Audio) – "The other day I was sitting in an airport waiting to catch a flight to a John Eldredge conference we were providing services for. My crew was driving the truck and I was scheduled to meet them onsite so that we could start an early load-in the following day. As I sat there I watched my flight get delayed to the point where I was not going to be able to fly into my destination city that night."

Clutch Hitting

rollinsHard to believe Spring training is again underway. When it comes to baseball, I’m a complete homer — I always have been and always will be a Phillies fan. The only thing is, I really like  hockey a lot more than I like baseball. So given that the hockey season was well under way by the time the world series final ground to a halt, it was relatively easy to come to terms with the fact that the Phils couldn’t quite pull off the repeat. But out of the the deluge of the press coverage documenting their ultimately unsuccessful campaign came this quotes from the Phillies’ cunning old manager Charlie Manuel:

“He likes the moment,” Manuel said. “He wants to be there, and he can control his adrenaline and he can handle the moment.”

Manuel is describing Jimmy Rollins after his clutch hit won them game four of the NLCS in the bottom of the ninth.

Can you think of a better description of the kind of person you want to be working a meeting with you? You know the moments we’re talking about here. Lamps burn out, speakers freaking out, cable getting kick loose, file corrupt, etc.
