Whistle While You Work . . . Or Play . . . Or Just Because It’s Convenient
A small town in Turkey with about 1,000 residents uses an ancient whistled language to communicate. Check out this link, which also includes translated audio so you can hear what the whistles mean.
Businesses Can Help Give Students a Leg Up
A private college-prep high school right here in Kansas City is helping urban students with limited opportunities to acquire work skills at the same time they study a traditional academic curriculum. Students at Cristo Rey Kansas City participate in a work-study program that allows them to finance most of the cost of their education, gain career skills, and develop business relationships. Businesses may participate in the program in a variety of ways. For more information, listen to my podcast interview tomorrow with Ted Koppen the director of Cristo Rey Kansas City’s Corporate Work Study Program or visit Christo Rey’s website.
Tax Break for Some Missouri Businesses
The State of Missouri has announced a tax amnesty program starting Sept. 1, 2015. Taxpayers, including businesses, with certain delinquencies can pay the taxes due without incurring penalties and interest. The program ends on Nov. 30, 2015. Visit the Missouri Department of Revenue website for more information about the program.
