Join retired attorney, genealogist and tour provider Sarah Cato for a discussion of the 56th United States Colored Infantry recognition program
The St. Louis African American History and Geneaology Society spearheaded the recognition of the 56th United States Colored Troops, and an Ad Hoc Committe is working to have memorial stones placed at the Jefferson Barracks National Cemetery.
175 soldiers of the 56th USCI died of cholera in August 1866. The 56th Regiment was originally organized at St. Louis as the 3d Arkansas Infantry Regiment (African Descent). The 3d Arkansas was ordered from St. Louis to Helena, Arkansas and served on post duty there. The unit was mustered out of the service on September 15, 1866, but before then, the tragedy occurred that contributed to the reason a monument was built in their honor in St. Louis. The 56th was traveling aboard 2 steamers to be mustered out. During the trip several soldiers died of an undiagnosed illness. A surgeon inspected the men and reported no cholera among them. The men arrived in St. Louis at night and were kept onboard until the next morning, rather than being allowed to roam the town. The next morning, it was clear that the 56th Regiment had cholera. Ordered back to Quarantine Station, the unit lost 178 enlisted men and one officer in the next few weeks. During its service the 56th Regiment lost a total of 674 men. Four officers and 21 enlisted men were killed in action or of wounds. Two officers and 647 enlisted men were killed by disease, 96 percent of their regiment's losses.

Stephen Lynch is the COO of RESULTSDotcom and author of Business Execution for Results: A Practical Guide for Leaders of Small to Medium-Sized Businesses. We've been friends since, Stephen always reminds me, 2005. when we met at a Growth Conference hosted by Verne Harnish of Gazelles.
You can listen to my interview of Stephen about his book here. You can read my review of his book here.
As he heard of my plans to write a book on Employee Engagement, he offered to write a chapter. It's titled Stephen's Story. In it he shares his personal journey towards recognizing the power of employee recognition and a simple two-step plan to make it a fixed part of his day. Every day.
I'll read Stephen's Story and let you hear the power of a simple approach to employee recognition.
We all know that in the world of Biometrics, it is primarily Fingerprint Recognition which is the predominant technology being used today to confirm the identity of a particular individual. There have been many advancements made out in this realm, with the technology getting smaller and smaller so that it can fit onto a Smarpthone, as well ultra fast algorithms for both template creation and verification/identification. In today's radio show, we have the pleasure to interview Mr. Philip Scarfo, Vice President of Sales and Marketing at Lumidigm (which is also a division of HID Global). This company has pioneered the use of Fingerprint Recognition by developing a technology known as "Multispectral Imaging". With this breakthrough, not only can the unique features on the top of the surface of the fingerprint be extracted, but from the subsurface of the skin as well. In this interview, we learn more about this, and the features and benefits it presents to the market applications of Biometrics.
As we all know, Voice Recognition is starting to become an important Biometric technology. While it may not enjoy the "limelight" applications which Vein Pattern Recognition and Iris Recognition do, Voice Recognition is finding its specialty in specific niches such as call centers, financial trading, and specialty forensic cases. One of the primary advantages of Voice Recognition is that it has a low cost point of entry. Meaning, there is no extra, specialized hardware or software needed-it can leverage off of existing technology at a place of business or organization. In this radio show, we interview Ms. Sherrie Adcock, CEO of Voice Security Systems, Inc., based out of California. They have been in the Voice Recognition business for almost 20 years, and three US patents to their recognition. We learn more from Ms. Adcock about their "secret sauce" for successful Voice Recognition implementations, and what the future holds for it.
Why are so many people talking about Employee Engagement? We'll find out a few tips on the effectiveness of employee recognition and how it can potentially provide financial success to your company. Zane Safrit, CEO, Business Consultant, and Author will share some of his experiences and lessons learned on building employees awareness of company goals, raising morale, and increasing productivity.
Zane Safri has spent his career in call center operations, many of them serving international customers and sales forces. From an entry level position as a customer service rep to team leader to Assistant Director and Country Manager to finally CEO he saw the language of employee recognition and employee engagement is a univeral language and so are the forms of its ROI. As Country Manager, he opened his company's first overseas office in Seusseldorf, Germany and used employee recognition and engagement to double sales and triple the number of new orders within the first six months. As CEO of a small conference call service provider he rebudgeted the company's advertising and marketing budgets towards employees and customers. This resulted in revenue growth of 80% while retail prices were pushed lower by over 70%, all the time generating positive cash-flows, the lifeblood of small business. In his book Recognize THEM: 52 Ways to Recognize Your Employees In Way They Value he has compiled many of the ways he used to recognize and engage employees, many of them require no financial inventment, research and data to show the positive impact on a company's performance and inspiring quotes from business leaders on the value of employee recognition. He also shares his mistakes to help you avoid them as you being this journey towards a culture of engagement.
The Fingerprint has become the de facto standard not only for law enforcement, but for the world of Biometrics as well. Apart from Hand Geometry Recognition, Fingerprint Recognition has been around the second longest. There are many configurations availalbe with Fingerprint Recognition. For example, you can have local authentication with just one stand alone device, or, you can have a client server configuration, where many Fingeprint readers are connected to one central server. This type of set up is most common with very large organizations and businesses. Also, typically, when you use Fingerprint Recognition for Physical Access Entry applications, there is then the need to rip out the old locks and put in new electromagnetic lock strikes, wired to an access control reader. But, this may no longer be necessary. In today's interview, we talk with Mr. Bob Fee, Director of North American Sales for Zwipe AS, based out of Norway. They have come up with a brand new solution, known as known as a 'Match On Card'. In this interview, we learn more about this new technology, and how Biometrics can be a part of it. We also find out about the future of 'Match On Cards', and the promise they hold to keep Biometric deployments and configurations simple and easy to use.

If one were to examine the Biometric Modalities which are available today, the one technology which would stand out in terms of recognition by the public is that of Facial Recognition. Why is this so? Well, after the tragic incidents of 9/11, Facial Recognition, received a lot attention by the press and the media as the "cure all" technology for all of the security ailments present in the United States at the time. But when Facial Recognition failed to live up to its standards, it was ripped apart to shreds even as a viable technology. Also, Facial Recognition can be used very covertly, thus creating claims of privacy rights and civil liberties violations by the American public. In this radio show, we interview Mr. Joe Rosenkrantz, CEO of FaceFirst. From him, we will find out first hand how successful or not Facial Recognition actually is, and the kinds of deployments which they have implemented. We will also discuss with him the social implications of Facial Recognition, and what it means to the American society as a whole.
In the course of these radio shows, we have interviewed thus far two Biomeric Vendors whom specialize in scanning the eye for the purposes of verification and/or identification of an individual. So far, we have examined Sclera Recognition, as well as Iris Recognition. In today's interview, we interview Mr. Martin George, the CEO of Smart Sensors, LTD., based out of the United Kingdom. The UK can be considered the 'home' of Iris Recognition, as it was Dr. John Daugmann of the University of Cambridge whom developed the first set of commercial Iris Recognition algorithms. What sets Smart Sensors. LTD., today from the rest of the competition is that they are a 'one stop shop' for the customer wanting to use Iris Recognition technology. For example, they noy only offer various types of Iris Recognition hardware devices, but they also offer SDK's and database prototypes to meet the exacting needs of the customer. In this radio show, we learn from Mr. Martin George about their Iris Recognition products and services, what sets them apart from other Iris Recognition vendors, and what their plans and visions for the future are.
In today's radio show, we have the privilige and honor to be interviewing one of the top executives of one of the largest IT and Security businesses in the world - Mr. Raffie Beroukhim, Vice President of the Biometrics division of NEC Corporation of America. This garganutan business has collectively, more than 200 Biometric application deployments across 30 nations. In this interview, we probe deeper into the Biometrics product line of NEC, which include the following:
*Large Scale Law Enforcement Applications.
We will learn more from Mr. Beroukhim what makes NEC Corporation of America different from all of the other Biometric Vendors, and how they plan to keep up that strategic and competitive edge in the marketplace.

Booking Agency/Agents are the Work Force for Artists,Groups, Bands And Touring
An agent is an integral asset in a budding artist’s career now more than ever before. With record labels playing less of a role early on, often times an agent is discovering and signing talent before labels do.
If unsigned artists are able to establish themselves through a Website, release their own tracks, obtain great reviews, and build a strong fan base, it’s more likely that those artists will catch the eye of an agent. Agents are constantly reading, researching and surveying all of the resources available to them online and offline, in an effort to identify prospective new talent.
Success in this business ultimately depends on the artist. One of the best ways for an artist to break into the music scene today is through touring. For certain artists, the best option may be to tour immediately, especially if their music is already well-known on the Internet. In other instances, it’s more effective for artists to start by building recognition through social networking, and subsequently, touring.
Years ago it was common for artists to utilize other channels of promotion to reach a new fan base such as MTV. The record label would then promote its artists and their music videos. While those channels are still important, they’re not as influential today as they once were, and artists aren’t waiting around and relying on those mediums to have careers.
An artist will always get to a point where they need to reach a new audience, and with the Internet and access to social media at their fingertips, an artist has a pretty good chance of developing an independent fan base on its own.
