- For this week’s #juntosjueves we would like to show off where we stayed during our trip! We slept in the Centro Juvenil de Derrumbadero, or the youth center, and we also did our workshops in this building! The center was built using 50,000 recycled plastic bottles and it has different shapes and words cut out in the cement to show off these bottles (you can check this out in the middle picture!) The center is used for classes and events for the local youth, and we all loved watching the kids play baseball in the area behind the center! #juntoscmu #carnegiemellon #cmustudyabroad #studyabroad #serviceabroad #lifeatcmu

- Dica de livro e de lição de vida! Diagnosticado pelo seu médico com câncer no pâncreas, o professor de Ciência de Computação, Randy Pausch , prepara sua última palestra, evento comum nas Universidades americanas para grandes mestres, que ministram uma hipotética palestra de despedida com tema baseado no questionamento “que sabedoria você transmitiria ao mundo sabendo que é sua última oportunidade?”. Mas para Randy , realmente será sua última palestra, já que o estado de sua doença, lhe dá apenas mais 6 meses de vida, assim o professor comparece ao Carnegie Mellon University, para sua palestra final , intitulada "Concretizando realmente seus sonhos de criança". Considerado um dos mais comoventes acontecimentos do mundo acadêmico, o evento foi propagado pela internet e ficou conhecido, em menos de 2 meses, por mais de 25 milhões de pessoas. Durante sua “última aula”, Pausch compartilha sua vida, seus erros e acertos, seus sonhos de infância, deixando a lição de determinação e de que nunca é tarde para recomeçar. Um livro de fácil leitura e que nos comove do início ao fim.

- Painting: "A Cat within a Cat within a Cat." The focus of this post is my story. Not my painting.
3 cats, within the cat. #zoomin
Symbolizing 3 stories.
I am vocal about giving praise for exceptional service.
Last year I received such service from @carnival Bojan was extraordinary. Chocolate covered strawberries, a handwritten note, and a personal email from Carnival President Christine Duffy. Service makes us remember, and draws us back.
On Saturday, February 16, 2019 I went to @londondrugs King George location. The service received from Katie in the Photography Department was exceptional. She took the time to explain process. Was enthusiastic, smiling, and helpful. Thank-you #londondrugs . Your training works.
This was after my service, or lack therof @walmart King George Highway.
Went to the store. Music was loud. I know loud I was a taiko drummer for years.
Needed help to find the photography department. I waited patiently for a customer service representative. I looked her in the eye and asked for directions to the requested department. She gestured her hand behind her back. I then tried to locate with no avail.
I returned and asked another employee. She told me there was no photography department. She then pointed and said we have a self printing kiosk. I asked her to walk me there. The kiosk was less than ten feet away.
I had to download the photo app. During the process my phone shut down. I thought perhaps there was a virus. I went to the Customer Service Department as a courtesy to advise.
I asked to speak to a Manager. The clerk made a call. I waited. Five minutes. Ten minutes. No one came to assist. No one let me know there would be a further wait. I felt invisible.
Is it okay to ignore someone yet have a lively conversation amongst each other when customers are waiting?
I write this post as I wasn't afforded the opportunity to speak with a Manager.
I finally said to the clerk that I would be leaving, and contacting corporate. It was then that she said. "Oh, I hear her coming." I left.
Training is important.
Communication is vital.
Walmart you have the opportunity to make changes.

- We’re incredibly proud to honor Patti Askwith Kenner with the Special Award for Leadership and Philanthropy on March 11 at the Rainbow Room as part of our Academy of the Arts Achievement Awards Dinner. Join us in celebration - get your tickets at guildhall.org
Patti Askwith Kenner is an indefatigable advocate for social causes, including arts education, women in politics, Holocaust survivors and history. In addition to serving as a long time Guild Hall trustee, Patti is board member of the Defiant Requiem Foundation, the Museum of Jewish Heritage-A Living Memorial to the Holocaust, Carnegie Mellon University, the American Heart Association and many others. In 2019, she underwrote the Patti Kenner Fellowship in Arts Education at Guild Hall to help enhance educational programming for youth.
Patti was born in New York City and grew up in Harrison, NY. She graduated with a degree in French from Carnegie Mellon University and received her Master’s degree in Early Childhood Education from Columbia University Teachers College. Following 10 years of teaching, she joined her father at Campus Coach Lines, the charter bus company he founded as a student at the University of Michigan in 1928, and which he ran until he passed away recently—at 104. Patti is now President of Campus Coach.
She is proud of her lengthy Board service to Guild Hall and to be part of an organization that gives back so much to the community. She dedicates her commitment to Guild Hall to the memory of former Chairman, Mickey Straus, who insisted Patti become involved with this important institution.
