Bridging the Generation Gap in Egypt and the American Workplace

The historical transfer of power in Egypt has seen the departure of an entrenched 82-year-old dictator and a movement toward a democratically elected government where young Egyptians will have a major voice in politics and policies of the future.  A major key to a successful transition that will allow Egypt to move forward as a stable, innovative nation lies in respect and understanding between generations.

The same is true with American businesses.

Innovation is the intersection of the past and present that leads to the future.  That’s why it is so important that business leaders publicly acknowledge the contribution of each generation, applaud the unique strengths brought to the table by workers of different ages, and encourage everyone to share their viewpoints as a way to make a strong team even stronger.

Officers Rescue Residents from Burning Townhouse

From Prince William County Police Department:

On 01-10-10, at approximately 2:12 a.m., patrol officers were conducting a traffic stop in the area of Irongate Way and Anvil Drive in the Manassas area when they were notified by a citizen that a nearby townhouse was on fire. Officer Michael Jordan left immediately to wake up the residents at 8357 Irongate Way and, shortly after, he was joined by Officer Michael Scarsella.

Four adults and eight children were sleeping when they were escorted to safety by the police officers. Sergeant Jason Janecek arrived to assist and supervise. The residents from 8357 Irongate Way were being evacuated by Officers Jordan and Scarcella when Officer Erika Hernandez arrived to assist. She began evacuating the residents from 8359 Irongate Way. As soon as the residents from the two homes were safely outside, the residents from the other units were notified of the fire and safely exited their homes.
