Business Briefcase: January 18, 2017

Welcome to the Business Briefcase, everyone!

I hope everyone has enjoyed their week thus far, and is ready to digest some Business news.

If not, this is the print edition. Set it down and come back later. The information won’t change, I promise.

And fulfilling another promise, I chased away all the bad spirits poisoning the Briefcase with only closing items. This week’s edition has no closings, actually.

Business Briefcase - January 11, 2017

Welcome to the Business Briefcase, readers! Glad to have you aboard.

This definitely wasn’t intentional, but this week’s theme has somewhat of a dark aura surrounding it. Call it the Grim Reaper of Business if you’d like, but this week’s edition is filled with some closings.

If you don’t believe in business spirits, and who can blame you since I just made them up, you can chalk up the closing talk to economics.

Business Briefcase: January 4, 2017

Welcome to the first Business Briefcase of 2017.

I trust everyone had a fantastic New Year’s and stayed safe. For me, that’s usually celebrating in a private residence with a few friends. Lines for the restroom are much shorter that way.

By the time you, Briefcase reader, pour your eyes over this column, New Year’s will be long gone, but thanks to the wonky holiday schedule, I’m writing it a few days in advance. Such is the magic of the written word.

Business Briefcase - December 28, 2016

Welcome to the Business Briefcase, everyone!

We’re going to wrap up the year by counting down the top five businesses listed during 2016.

Just kidding, they’re all No. 1, and I don’t think the powers that be will allow me to use all the space required to list everyone. Something about other stories needing to get in the paper, I guess.

Business Briefcase: December 21, 2016

Hello, everyone, and welcome to the final Briefcase before all the holidays hit.

There’s a lot of overlap with the major holidays this year, so everyone is in the same boat in the stress timeframe. Christmas is Sunday, at its concrete schedule of Dec. 25. Chanukah begins at sundown on Saturday, and Kwanzaa begins Dec. 26.

Also can’t forget Festivus, with its unadorned aluminum pole, airing of grievances and feats of strength.

Business Briefcase - December 14, 2016

Welcome to the Business Briefcase, everyone.

One of my favorite little things about writing the Briefcase column is being able to break the rules and get away with it.

No, I’m not talking about hopping fences and trespassing to get a scoop. This is the Briefcase, not a Hollywood movie script. I’m talking about journalistic writing style rules.

Business Briefcase: December 7, 2016

Hello, readers, and welcome to the first December edition of the Business Briefcase! Glad to have you aboard.

We’re just over a fortnight away from Christmas and the beginning of Chanukah. Not too far away now!

Fortnight is a refreshing way to refer to a period of time. It’s two weeks, by the way, for those who aren’t familiar.

Business Briefcase - November 30, 2016

Welcome to the final Briefcase of November, folks.

We’re down to the last month of 2016, which is pretty crazy unless you’re one of those people where time feels like it moves at the same speed, all the time.

I’m not one of them, but the good news is I get to crack open my new personal calendar notebook. My 2017 year begins with December 2016, apparently. I’m looking at it like I’m getting 13 months for the price of 12, which subsequently comes out to $0, since I didn’t pay for the one I’m using.
